Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Even with the presidential election teetering between the candidates, nothing has appeared at the itstime2020 dot org website since late September. Meanwhile, the empr dot media attempt to spin up interest in a Ukrainian not-for-profit’s threat to sue Rudy Giuliani for defamation is falling flat.Not a single like or comment.

Hmmmm.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Brett Kimberlin’s shrinking web presence over the past few months reminded me of the TKPOTD from one year ago today.

* * * * *

To borrow some words from a song from the ’60s,

There’s something happening here
What it is ain’t exactly clear

I was checking out the Justice Through Music Project website, and I noticed that the DONATE buttons were gone. That struck me as odd. I went over to the Protect Our Elections website, and it’s donate page was still up and functional. It also still had the claim that the donation was being made to a 501(c)(3) entity and was tax deductible. Protect Our Elections/EMPR has never been recognized as a 501(c)(3) charity by the IRS. Until recently, it was recognized as a 505(c)(4) not-for-profit, but its status was revoked for failure to file the required paperwork for over three years. In any case, (c)(4) organizations don’t pay taxes, but donations to them are not tax exempt, so they claim that donations to POE/EMPR are deductible is simply wrong.

It becoming apparent that Kimberlin isn’t paying the same attention to his not-for-profits as he used to. It’s almost as if something else is distracting him.

Hmmmm.

BTW, when The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin sued me and my codefendants in the Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club, et all. (I) RICO Madness LOLsuit, he accused us of operating a false 505(c)(3) as a scam.

Can you say “projection”?

* * * * *

The only operating DONATE button left on any of the surviving Kimberlin-related websites is at itstime2020 dot org. Even given the site’s recent upward surge to a world site popular rating of 12,465,001, it’s probably safe to assume that the site’s legitimate donations have failed to cover the costs related to the site.

Well, it looks as if Brett Kimberlin really has abandoned his It’s Time 2020 operation. It’s election day, and the website hasn’t been updated since late September. The Twitter account hasn’t had an original tweet since the middle of September and hasn’t retweeted anything for over a month.

Indeed, the only Kimberlin-related web operation that is still trying to affect the election is EuroMaidan PR. The website and Twitter account have both tried to call attention to a Ukrainian not-for-profit (with apparent Soros connections) threatening to sue Rudy Giuliani for defamation. That’s generated no measurable increase in the <200 hits per day for the website and generated only 7 retweets and 7 likes for the original tweet. Almost half of those retweets and likes were from foreign accounts. The US retweeter with the most followers was the Republicans for Biden account.

Joe Biden may win today’s election. If he does, that may encourage Kimberlin to bring back some of his websites. OTOH, if Biden doesn’t win, ….

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


This most recent tweet (as opposed to a retweet) from the @itstime_2020 account applauds Biden setting up a legal war room.Of course, it now looks as if Biden may need a criminal defense team, something that The Dread Deadbeat Parolee Kimberlin would understand from past experience.

Things aren’t proceeding exactly has I have foreseen, but they’re headed in pretty much the right direction.

Stay tuned.

What are the odds? There’s that six degrees of separation thing about how many level of contacts separate any two people, but how likely is it that any two people a connected via only one degree of separation?

Before I started writing about Brett Kimberlin, I had a vague recollection of him as the federal prisoner who had claimed to be Dan Quayle’s dope dealer. It wasn’t long after I started writing about him that I found the number of degrees of separation between us was one. It turned out that I had connections to several people who had known Kimberlin while he was in Indiana. (Mrs. Hoge went to school at IU in Bloomington, and while she never met Kimberlin, she had several friends knew him.) This post, An Interesting Coincidence re #BrettKimberlin, is from eight years ago today.

* * * * *

We didn’t pick up yesterday’s mail until we were coming in from church this morning. Mrs. Hoge handed me a package that turned out to contain a copy of Citizen K: The Deeply Weird American Journey of Brett Kimberlin. A friend finally got me a personal copy via a used book seller.

The book has one of those clear plastic protective jackets that you find on library book, and, sure enough, it’s stamped as being a discarded book from a library. The Monroe County Public Library. In Bloomington, Indiana.

Bloomington is where TDPK was selling drugs when he was a teenager. It’s where the activities that led to his first conviction (for perjury) took place. Bloomington is turning out to be a real source of information. Perhaps some more follow up with personal contacts is in order.

* * * * *

Those follow up contacts have been excellent sources of information. I wasn’t able to publish much of that information directly because of privacy concerns, but it often pointed to which rock to turn over next.

But back to my recollection of Kimberlin falsely claiming to have sold dope to Dan Quayle. That lie didn’t work either in 1988 or 1992, and it was debunked in Citizen K which was a biography authorized by Kimberlin. More recently, his band of hackers failed to tip the election toward Hillary protect our election in 2016, and his anti-Trump efforts don’t seem to be getting much traction this year. (itstime2020 dot org is still stuck below #14,000,000 for its global popularity ranking.)

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Someone connected with Kimberlin’s It’s Time 2020 operation woke up and decided to post something to the itstime2020 dot org website on 2 October. With all of the stories available, the best thing that the poster could find to write about was Brad Parscale’s mental breakdown. Really? That’s the big news of the election since the last post on 28 August?

Whatever.

BTW, Kimberlin wound up losing all of his defamation lawsuits because what had been written and said about him was true, so you’d think that he’d understand that it’s false statements that can be defamatory. Yet, the itstime2020 dot org post ends with these words about Brad Parscale: “… and he worked with Russia and Cambridge Analytica that year [2016] to manipulate the presidential election.” Given the thorough debunking of the Russian Collusion Hoax, unless there’s some evidence to back that statement up, it looks as if it’s being made with a reckless disregard for the truth. Gentle Reader, do you suppose a convicted perjurer would do such a thing?

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One of the grandiose gestures that Brett Kimberlin has made during presidential elections has been to offer rewards (usually $100,000) for information proving election fraud.Looking at Velvet Revolution US’s IRS Form 990s shows that the organization never had the financial ability to pay such a reward, so it seems to me that the empty offers were futile attempts to draw positive attention to Kimberlin’s activism.

Given Kimberlin’s ties to admitted Democrat operatives such as Alexandra Chalupa, the Gentle Reader should not be surprised to find that Kimberlin isn’t offering any such reward this year. Perhaps he already knows …

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Brett Kimberlin’s clout as an activist has been minimal. That may explain why he has used bogus LOLsuits and other forms of lawfare to harass those of us who have written truthfully about him. The TKPOTD for seven years ago today dealt with the lack of impact Justice Through Music Project had on the Real World.

* * * * *

Team Kimberlin has been able to cause a great deal of misery to those it has targeted for personal attack. That’s in stark contrast to it’s impact in the wider world. For example, it the various web analytical services can be trusted, it is likely that more people will read this post on the first day it is up than will visit the Justice Through Music Project website over the next two weeks.

jtmp_ustreamKimberlin’s real world impact is trivial even among the true believers in the causes he claims to espouse. Take fracking (hydraulic fracturing to free trapped natural gas), or, in JTMP’s case, anti-fracking. If you go to the JTMP website, you’ll find a link to a Ustream channel. Clicking on the link will take you to a poorly recorded, year-old session of a bunch of activists talking about the evils of fracking. There’s nothing else on the channel. No wonder the channel only has 3 followers.

Just like all those petitions that never achieve a critical mass of signers or proving election fraud based on tips that never come in or …

* * * * *

Indeed, more people will probably read today’s TKPOTD on the day it’s published that will visit Kimberlin’s itstime2020 dot org website all next month.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One of the claims that the Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin made in his LOLsuits is that people had made money off of writing about him and his activities. Of course, people make money writing about other people all the time. Folks are willing to pay for interesting, informative, or entertain writing that tells stories about other people. Kimberlin was never able to connect a defendant’s writing about him to any injury he suffered. More important, he was never able to show that anyone’s reporting about him was false. The TKPOTD from six years ago today deals with one of his futile attempts to follow the money.

* * * * *

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin seemed especially interested in this blog’s ability to raise money. Here’s part of his direct examination of me during the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit trial.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Right, so and every day you have a post called Team Kimberlin Post of the Day?

MR. HOGE: That’s one of the features of my blog.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Right, uh-huh. And you also have a donate button on your blog where you can raise money and ask people to donate to you, right?

MR. HOGE: Actually it’s called a tip jar, but yes.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Yeah, tip jar, uh-huh. Okay, and you started this campaign called Everybody Blog about the Howard County Prosecutors. Can you tell just why that was started?

MR. HOGE: Yes, the —

MR. OSTRONIC: Objection.

THE COURT: Overruled.

MR. HOGE: Yes, Mr. Walker and his wife showed me credible evidence that you had, in fact, stalked them in the parking lot of the Howard County District Courthouse in Ellicott City. And when Mr. Walker and his wife went to talk with the State’s Attorney’s Office they were told by Assistant State’s Attorney Brewer that if they didn’t want to be harassed they should stay out of Maryland. And that didn’t strike me as responsible way for a State’s Attorney’s Office whether they’re going to nolle pross the, and not follow-up on charge or not, that just struck me as a very unfortunate attitude for a State’s Attorney’s Office. And so I thought they should be held accountable for it.

MR. KIMBERLIN: So you started this campaign and had people calling. How did it work?

MR. HOGE: Well basically the idea was that people should ask the State’s Attorney himself if that was, in fact, his policy.

MR. KIMBERLIN: So that’s where all this Maryland is for Stalkers kind of —

MR. HOGE: I have no idea where exactly that came from. I have seen that there was a blogger who for a short time had on Zazzle which is one of these internet sales companies a bumper sticker that said that. I think it was probably a parody on Virginia being for Lovers.

He brought up the Maryland is for Stalkers bumper sticker while Aaron Walker was on the stand as well. I don’t believe that it has been a very big seller, but it sure got under his skin. Of course, it’s entirely possible that it generated more sales than any of the Team Kimberlin merchandise that was offered by Brietbart Unmasked.

I wonder … is fundraising so precarious at JTMP and VRUS that TDPK is now jealous of my minor league blog?

Oh … one more thing … it seems to annoy Brett Kimberlin for folks to hit my Tip Jar.

* * * * *

I suspect that Kimberlin’s failure to generate traffic to online DONATE button may have made it more difficult to provide a smoke screen for funding from other sources.

For example, he seems to have vanishingly small traffic at the itstime2020 dot org site.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Brett Kimberlin’s LOLsuits have failed because he has never been able to put together a logical argument that he has suffered any injury from truthful report about hime, his associates, and their activities. He’s had particular difficulty understanding what is admissible under the Rules of Evidence. The TKPOTD from six years ago today deals with one of the many times he was stopped by the judge enforcing those rules during the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. trial.

* * * * *

It was pretty obvious from the load of … ah … junk he gave us in discovery for the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin didn’t understand the rules of evidence or how to properly structure his case. He proved both during the trial. For example, consider this question he was never able to ask of Stacy McCain because it dealt with hearsay.

MR. KIMBERLIN: So do you know what the Southern Poverty Law Center is?

MR. OSTRONIC: Objection Your Honor.

THE COURT: What does the Southern Poverty Law Center have to do with this case?

MR. KIMBERLIN: Well Mr. McCain has —

THE COURT: The Southern Poverty Law Center, what does that have to do with this case?

MR. KIMBERLIN: Mr. McCain is considered a neo-confederate — is one —

MR. OSTRONIC: Objection, Your Honor.

THE COURT: Well —

MR. KIMBERLIN: And the Southern Poverty Law Center

MR. OSTRONIC: Objection, Your Honor.

THE COURT: Hold on a second. Counsel I appreciate you objecting to my question but I’m not going to overrule myself. That’s not something I do. So what does the Southern Poverty Law Center have to do with this case? I’m not asking you about Mr. McCain, I’m asking you about why are you asking him about the Southern Poverty Law Center?

MR. KIMBERLIN: I’m asking him the Southern Poverty Law Center is the leading, one of the leading civil rights organizations in the —

THE COURT: I understand all of that but what does it have to do with this case?

MR. KIMBERLIN: Because —

THE COURT: And the claim that you are making against these gentlemen?

MR. KIMBERLIN: Because Southern Poverty Law Center regularly outs racists —

MR. OSTRONIC: Objection.

THE COURT: So what if they do. What does that have to do with this case? This case isn’t about racists or racism.

MR. KIMBERLIN: It’s about hate. It’s about hate. These people hate me and they do anything to destroy me.

THE COURT: Well but why are you asking this witness about the Southern Poverty Law Center? First of all he couldn’t testify as to anything they said or did because it wouldn’t be an exception to any hearsay rule. So you would never be able to get that in evidence anyway.

MR. KIMBERLIN: All right.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Mr.—

THE COURT: Your objection’s sustained.

Of course, TDPK was trying to paint Stacy McCain as a racist, and that’s nonsense. Furthermore, given some of the racial epithets that TDPK is on record as have said and written, it was particularly unseemly for him to be trying to tar anyone else with that brush.

Even if Stacy or I or any of our codefendants were racist, that had no bearing on whether or not what we said and wrote was true, and TDPK had to prove that our words were false. Stupid is as stupid does, and TDPK tried to bring up racism a second time.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Have you ever been identified as a member of the hate group League of the South?

THE COURT: I’m sorry, what was that, what group?

MR. OSTRONIC: Objection.

MR. KIMBERLIN: League of the South.

THE COURT: League of the South?

MR. KIMBERLIN: It’s like an offshoot of the KKK.

MR. OSTRONIC: Objection, Your Honor.

MR. KIMBERLIN: It believes in —

THE COURT: What’s that relevant to, sir?

MR. KIMBERLIN: Well he brought it up.

THE COURT: He didn’t bring up the League of the South.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Huh?

THE COURT: He didn’t bring up the League of the South.

MR. KIMBERLIN: He talked about he’s not a racist.

THE COURT: Well the fact that he brought it up without objection doesn’t make it relevant. I mean what is the jury going to do with this? We’re not here about whether anybody is a racist or not, are we?

MR. KIMBERLIN: Well no, but he’s tried —

MR. MCCAIN: You’re white by the way.

Never try to outcrazy Stacy McCain.

* * * * *

It was almost worth all the hassle of the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. LOLsuit to be able to watch Kimberlin destroy his own case by calling Aaron Walker, Ali Alexander, Stacy McCain, and Me at his witnesses. All we had to do to discredit his imagined narrative was to tell the truth. I suppose he was so unfamiliar with the truth that it caught him off guard.

BTW, the foreman of the jury (who was black) had been rolling his eyes as he listened to Kimberlin’s line of questioning, and he chuckled at Stacy’s “You’re white by the way” comment.

Meanwhile back in 2020, it looks as if no one is buying into Kimberlin’s latest false narratives. The @itstime_2020 Twitter account hasn’t seen any new tweets for over a week, and itstie2020 dot org’s global popularity ranking is still below 14,000,000. Also, while other English language Ukrainian news sites (e.g., Unian)  have been covering the Senate report on Hunter Biden’s foreign deals, empr dot media has ignored the story.

The Truth is out there. It’s just not often found on one of Kimberlin’s websites.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The TKPOTD for four years ago today gave an accounting of Team Kimberlin’s LOLsiuits as of that date.

* * * * *

All of these cases have some things in common:

Kimberlin v. Walker, et al.; Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club, et al. (I) (aka RICO Madness); Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club, et al. (II) (aka RICO Retread); Kimberlin v. Hunton & Williams LLP, et al. (I) (aka RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo); Kimberlin v. Hunton & Williams LLP, et al. (II) (aka RICO 2 Retread); Schmalfeldt v. Hoge, et al. (I) (aka LOLsuit I); Hoge v. Schmalfeldt counterclaims (aka LOLsuit II); Schmalfeldt v. Johnson, et al. (aka LOLsuit III); Schmalfeldt v. Hoge, et al. (II) (aka LOLsuit IV); Schmalfeldt v. Grady, et al. (I) (aka LOLsuit V); Schmalfeldt v. Grady, et al. (II) (aka LOLsuit VI); and Schmalfeldt v. Grady, et al. (III) (aka LOLsuit VII).

Each was accompanied by great forecasts of doom for the defendants. Every time any motion or ruling went in the favor of the plaintiff, there were expansive claims made concerning the expected victory by the plaintiff. And the defendants won every single one of ’em.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

* * * * *

We can add Kimberlin v. Breitbart Holdings, et al. (aka RICO 2), Kimberlin v. McConnell, et al. (aka Supreme Nonsense), and Schmalfeldt v. Grady, et al. (IV) (aka LOLsuit VIII: Avoiding Contact) to the win column for defendants.

Q’pala!

Meanwhile, no one over at the It’s Time 2020 operation seems to have noticed any significant news relating to the November election. As of 8 pm Sunday evening, there have been no new tweet from the @itstime_2020 account since 15 September, and there doesn’t seem to be anything posted on the itstime2020 dot org website after 28 August.

My, my! Look who’s been busy over the last day or so.

It looks as if whoever is supposed to be minding this Twitter account finally decided to follow some other accounts, and one of them (@CognitiveBoy) followed back.

The @TGDNews Twitter account follows mostly individuals and none of the sort of accounts (i.e., other reporters, news organizations, newsmakers, etc.) that most news operations follow. The tgdnews dot com website appears to be only a few months old, and its global popularity rank is 14,967,426—which is even lower than itstime2020 dot org’s ranking.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The TKPOTD for one year ago today dealt with Brett Kimberlin’s not-for-profit Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc.

* * * * *

Now that it seems that The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin has had his butt kicked in enough LOLsuits, it looks as if he’s tried to make a career change to protecting our elections. He’s renamed VelvetRevoultion.US as Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc. and is trying to make a go of the role of The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin. However, he doesn’t seem to be making much impact providing “oversight of elections,” something Protect Our Elections claimed it does in a suit against the Federal Election Commission.

The Protect Our Elections website has so little traffic it can’t be reliably ranked. None of the content posted in 2019 was original. The half dozen posts were lifted from Politico (twice), The Daily Beast, The Rolling Stone, Salon, and the Puffington Host. The last post that appears to contain any original content was about the disputed North Carolina House District 9 contest. I went up last December. Nothing posted in the past year has generated a single comment. Not. A. Single. Comment.

Moreover, The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin did not properly oversee this week’s special election to settle the NC-09 House election. Brett Kimberlin isn’t doing any better protecting our elections than he did smuggling dope into South Texas. Kimberlin, as Judge Hazel said, “has failed …”

* * * * *

2019 was a rough year for Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc. On 15 May, 2019, the IRS revoked its 504(c)(4) tax exempt status. Donations to that entity never were tax deductible, but revocation of 504(c)(4) means that POE/EMPR is itself no longer tax exempt. Perhaps that’s the reason why this was allowed to happen.

Source: egov.maryland.gov/BusinessExpress/EntitySearch

BTW, Protect Our Elections is still a registered trade name belonging to Justice Though Music Project. Kimberlin renewed the registration on 20 January, 2020.

Meanwhile, the @itstime_2020 Twitter account for the current attempt at influencing an election still had no followers as of 10:30 pm ET Saturday.

There’s been a bit of growth in Brett Kimberlin’s online footprint. The server in Holland that has been hosting his offshore sites supports five domains. Here they are—

beitbartunmasked dot com

empr dot media

greencasamaryland dot org

kelsiekimberlin dot com

itstime2020 dot org

The DONATE button works at itstime2020 dot org, and the DONATE button at protectourelections dot org now links to the itstime2020 donation account.

Oh, and there’s a Twitter account too!Note that the Twitter account is at least a month-and-a-half old and that, as of 9pm ET yesterday, it still had no followers.

It kinda looks like yet another attempt by Brett Kimberlin to be a player is failing.
