It was five years ago today that I first met Aaron Walker. It was in the lobby of the Montgomery County Circuit Courthouse. I was there to cover a peace order hearing for this blog. Brett Kimberlin has sought the peace order against Aaron in order to silence Aaron’s reporting truthful things about Kimberlin and his past and present activities. The bogus peace order was overturned at that hearing.
Yes, it’s been five years.
During that time, Kimberlin has tried to use lawsuits to silence those who have reported on him. The first suit named Aaron Walker, Stacy McCain, Ali Akbar, Kimberlin Unmasked, and me. Subsequent suits included us and over 40 other co-defendants. Someone referred to Kimberlin’s legal tactics as brass knuckles reputation management. He was surprised when we defendants punched back, some of us more than twice as hard. The result of his legal follies has been the Streisand Effect on steroids.
The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s alleged day job is Director of a not-for-profit called Justice Through Music Project which (according to its corporate charter) supposedly exists “to shed light on some of the injustices in the world through the power of music.” As part of that … um … effort, he runs the website jtmp dot org. That site has never hand much impact on the Interwebz. For example, none of its posts ever seem to generate comments.
The JTMP has always had fairly low traffic, but it has been losing even more ground recently. As of mid morning yesterday, its Alexa ranking was 13,392,452 which was even lower than brieitbitnews dot com’s 10,923,356.
For comparison, The Other McCain has an Alexa ranking of 367,126, and Hogewash! comes in at 369,796. The First Amendment is winning.
Meanwhile, it’s T-minus 9 days and counting in the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit.
