Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One of the world’s best examples of the Dunning-Kruger effect is Bill Schmalfeldt’s overestimation of his understanding of law and legal principles. This Prevarication Du Jour from three years ago today deals with one of his mistakes during LOLsuit VIII: Avoiding Contact.

For the record, Aaron Walker has only represented me in court in The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s appeal of the RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuit in the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeal. Aaron won that appeal for me and also an award of sanctions against Kimberlin for filing his frivolous appeal against me.

Aaron is not a member of the state bar in South Carolina or the bar of the U. S. District Court down there. Any counsel I have engaged or might engage already is a member of the bar of that District Court.

Aaron has never written any court paper for me that he did not sign as my counsel. Any statement to the contrary is false, has no evidentiary basis, and might be the basis of a counterclaim in LOLsuit VIII: Avoiding Contact.

Nothing is proceeding as the Cabin Boy™ has hallucinated.

LOLsuit VIII was The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt’s last LOLsuit so far. The thrashing he received was sufficient to prevent him from any further legal LULZ for a couple of years. Recently, he’s got himself in a copyright mess, and he’s been making noises about another LOLsuit.

Stupid is as stupid does.

This Ain’t Staying in Vegas


I was tempt to simply comment, “Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen,” but that wouldn’t be strictly correct. Another commenter on Twitter tweeted that Mini Mike had brought a wallet to a gun fight, and I had expected that Bloomberg’s billions should have brought him bette debater preparation. It didn’t.

Bloomberg clearly has run up against the Dunning-Kruger effect with respect to his ability to move from a AAA position (large city mayor) to the big leagues. His money can’t buy competence. While I did foresee him swinging and missing, he’s done it sooner than I expected.

Can he get his act together, or will he strike out? We shall see.

Meanwhile, buy popcorn.

The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin conducted his lawfare campaign aimed at silencing his critics in an unorthodox manner. That led to questions being asked whether there was method to his madness or whether he was simply incompetent. The TKPOTD from four years ago today (which was a Wednesday) dealt with those questions in the context of his RICO Madness LOLsuit.

Today, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and then time’s up. The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin will need to have his omnibus opposition to the motions to dismiss his Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness to the court by close of business next Monday. With that kind of time pressure, one wonders why he has wasted time on side issues such as the letter he sent to Judge Hazel concerning early discovery related to Ace’s ID.

I’ve heard several theories advanced.

The first is based on the idea that TDPK believes that the case is doomed and that the judge is going to grant the motions to dismiss. He’s trying for early discovery related to Ace’s identity because he thinks it’s his only shot.

A second theory is somewhat similar, except that it is based on the suspicion that TDPK is purposely blowing the case in order avoid being subjected to discovery by the defendants and that he’s trying to get the info on Ace before the case is thrown out.

timer-blackI’m not sure that I buy either. From what I’ve seen, Brett Kimberlin is a fairly disorganized doofus. The simplest explanation is that he simply hasn’t spent his time wisely.

Meanwhile, the timer is ticking down.

Stay tuned.

Upon reflection, I come down on the side of TDPK being incompetent. Hanlon’s Razor states that one should never attribute malice to that which can be adequately explained by incompetence, but in Kimberlin’s case I believe we see an example of malicious incompetence. His life seems to be an example of the Dunning-Kruger Effect on steroids. Grandiosity and delusions of adequacy appear to be root causes of all his failures, whether as a dope smuggler, a serial bomber, a pro-se litigant, or a political operative.

Losing losers gotta lose.

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin filed his Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness on 15 October, 2013. On 16 October, he handed me a copy of his original Complaint in the foyer of the Historic Courthouse in Westminster. (BTW, that was defective service. He should have had a third party hand it to me.) I blogged about some of the deficiencies that night, and on the 17th, TDPK filed an Amended Complaint which corrected only some of the errors I had pointed out.

The original Complaint listed 20 defendants in the caption, but it was obvious that from the text that he intended to sue 22. In the Amended Complaint that he filed with the court (and that’s the one that counts), he added one more defendant, DB Capitol Strategies.

When he got around to mailing copies to the defendants, he noticed that Twitchy was missing from the caption, so he added it on the version he sent at least some of us. I’ve known of the alteration since I received my copy on 22 October, and I reported the fact that I received an altered Amended Complaint in my motion to dismiss.

Here are the three versions of the case caption.RICO CaptionsAt least two other defendants received the altered Amended Complaint, Twitchy and Aaron Walker. I suspect that others did as well.
