Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Whether smuggling dope or plotting a campaign of lawfare, the members of Team Kimberlin always seem to come up with half-baked plans that fail because of their failure to understand the Real World. Through the years of writing about Team Kimberlin, the story has often turned on their incompetence. Consider the TKPOTD from six years ago today.

* * * * *

If you want to know what First Mate Neal Rauhauser is up to these days (aside from ducking service on legal processes), don’t bother looking at his LinkedIn profile:

Principle (sic) Investigator
The Intenet (sic)
December 2012 – Present (6 months) | Trollhättan, Norway

I no longer share information about what I do for a living, except in the very broad sense of what one could learn by observing my WordPress blog and my activity on LinkedIn.

I wonder what principle of the Intenet he’s investigating. (He’s certainly not one of the Principal Investigators of the Internet.)

SaabtrollstickerBTW, there is no city, town, or village in Norway named Trollhättan. There is a city of that name in Sweden. It was the principal manufacturing center for Saab automobiles. See the sticker at left.

Of course, the association with trolls …

Failing failures gotta fail.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


I always enjoy reporting when some petty tyrant loses his attempt to quash someone else’s free speech. The TKPOTD from six years ago today was one such report.

* * * * *

The Team Kimberlin lawfare strategy of using the courts to harass their enemies has not been an unalloyed success. Indeed, the dismissal of Nadia Naffe’s nuisance suit against Patrick Frey last week appears to have been a significant ding to their strategy.

The wheels of justice grind slowly, but they do grind on.

* * * * *

And they grind exceedingly fine. I’m not done helping to turn the crank yet.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Today’s post is a twofer. First, we’ll look at the TKPOTD from five years ago today which dealt with one of the most absurd claims in The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s Second Amended Complaint in his RICO Madness LOLsuit—the idea that there was some sort of connection between Team Themis and the defendants in the RICO Madness case. Next, we’ll look at the reaction that post elicited.

RICOMadnessHere’s some more nonsense from The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s proposed second amended complaint for his Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness.ECF 100-37Velvet Revolution US is the 501(c)(4) that TDPK cofounded with Brad Friedman. It operates a website called Indict Breitbart (No, I won’t link to it.) which, like all the VRUS sites, has a Donate button.IndictBrietbartdotorg

The domain was registered in September, 2010.

Raising money off of false narratives …

Hmmmm.

* * * * *

That TKPOTD resulted in some interesting comments coming in to the blog. So I published this post, In Re THEMIS.

* * * * *

THEMIS (Time History of Events and Macroscale Interactions during Substorms)  is a mission to investigate what causes auroras in the Earth’s atmosphere. The program is run by NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center and not by the agency just up the road that forgot to buy both vowels.

I have never had any connection to the program.

Hi, Neal!

UPDATE—Ooooo! Struck a nerve, have we? This comment just came in attributed to my late mother.TK2014041542ZCan you say “desperation”?

* * * * *

As with so many other things, TDPK’s futile attempt at brass knuckles reputation management via lawfare failed—in large part because of his and Team Kimberlin’s incompetence.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


IIRC, Team Kimberlin got into the lawfare business as a result of Neal Rauhauser coming on board. Rauhauser espoused a theory that pro se litigants could bring LOLsuits at little or no real expense to themselves that would force defendants to either settle or defend themselves at great expense. He promoted such suits as a way to raise money, but as it became obvious that Team Kimberlin had engaged defendants who would fight back, Rauhauser tried to fade into obscurity. However, he would occasionally surface. After The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin has his first three LOLsuits under way, Rauhauser let slip that he had a personal interest in them. I wrote about that in a post titled Rauhauser’s End Game? five years ago today.

* * * * *

First Mate Neal Rauhauser ran a blog hosted by WordPress.com called Conspiracy Broker for a while (No, I won’t link to it.). He put what he called his last post for that blog up on 2 January. It contains this paragraph:Conspiracy Brokers 20140102So, he thinks he will benefit from The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s vexatious litigation, does he?

We shall see.

Stay tuned.

In the end, lawfare has not turned out well for Neal Rauhauser. He’s wound up owing money rather than collecting it. That and his outstanding warrants keep him hiding.

Stormy Daniels v. Trump News


It’s no surprise that Stormy Daniels is opposing the award of attorneys’ fees to Donald Trump in her failed defamation case against him. There’s a bit of lawfare irony in one of the cases her creepy porn lawyer cites in the motion opposing the fees and sanctions sought. (H/T, BullyVille)

Great work, Neal!

Neal Rauhauser Loses Again


The Texas Supreme Court has denied Neal Rauhauser’s petition for review of the Appeals Court’s ruling setting aside the $150,000 (originally $1,300,000) sanction he was awarded against James McGibney and ordering him to pay McGibney’s fees and costs instead.

Here’s the order. Scroll down to page 4.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

UPDATE—Corrected the amount of the sanction and added a link to the Appeals Court ruling.
