Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin routinely filled his court filings with extraneous material, possibly because doing so allowed them to say things he imagined made his enemies look bad in a privileged environment. The TKPOTD for seven years ago today was about one such silly claim he made.

* * * * *

One of the reasons that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s second amended complaint in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness ran way over the 50-page limit established by the Court’s Local Rule is that he include a lot of extraneous material that doesn’t support his case. Consider this:ECF 135-33TDPK never explains how anything Team Themis might have done is in anyway connected with any defendant in the RICO Madness. If he could prove that any tortuous conduct occurred, he should sue Team Themis, the U. S. Chamber of Commerce, and the FBI. Not us.

However, since he brings up the subject, take a look at the list of “targets.” Brett Kimberlin and Brad Friedman are the co-founders of Velvet Revolution US, and Friedman is one of its directors. Justice Through Music and Velvet Revolution are the two not-for-profits that provide Kimberlin his day-to-day employment. Stop the Chamber is a fund raising activity operating under the wing of Velvet Revolution.

Hmmmm

Meanwhile, the timer is ticking down on TDPK’s omnibus opposition to the motions to dismiss the RICO Madness. It’s due two weeks from tomorrow.

The contest to spot TDPK’s truly magnificent error in his motion for a new trial in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. case is still running. There have been some great entries, but no one has found what Aaron Walker noticed. Yet.

* * * * *

res_judicata_mugsAs I type this post, I’m drinking Irish coffee out a the mug that no one won in that contest.

None of the Gentle Readers picked up on the fatal flaw in Kimberlin’s case.

It’s really quite simple. In order for a statement to be defamatory, it must be false. Although Kimberlin kept saying that it was defamatory to call him a pedophile, he never once said that he was not a pedophile.

Was he afraid of perjury trap?

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin is truly an incompetent litigator. Here’s a selection from the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. trial transcript where he asks Aaron Walker a question which undermines one of the bases for Kimberlin’s defamation claim against Aaron.Yep, he really asked that question.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin has complained that I have treated him callously. No, really. He said so in a court filing referenced in the TKPOTD from seven years ago today.

* * * * *

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has been amazingly slipshod in his court filing. This is from his opposition to my motion to dismiss his first amended complaint in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness.ECF 29-55_36The sharp-eyed Gentle Reader will notice the TDPK appears to have suffered a moment of mathematical challenge when he numbered the paragraphs in his opposition. As for the callousness of my argument, I simply pointed out that Kimberlin didn’t bother to allege any of the actual elements of the tort of intentional infliction of emotional distress in his complaint.

He also failed to do so in the state Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit. Here’s how our lawyer Patrick Ostronic explained the deficiency to Judge McGann during the 1 July hearing on motions for summary judgment in the state case.380966V_1JUL_p41And here’s how Judge McGann ruled.380966V_1JUL_p51That means that the judge found that, given the facts in evidence about which there was no dispute, we defendants were entitled to a summary judgment in our favor as a matter of law.

popcorn4bkSo was it callous of me to point out that essentially the same set of allegations in the RICO Madness as were found in the state case have the same problems? Perhaps, but no more so that TDPK’s filing a bogus and vexatious lawsuit.

Stay tuned.

ftrrnews201310111937ZCutting my own deal am I? Well, Gentle Reader, I did offer Brett Kimberlin a cheap way out of his Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. lawsuit. He opted not to settle, so my lawyer has filed an answer to his complaint.

I have no intention of conducting my defense of the suit on the Internet, but items filed as part of the court docket become public documents unless they are sealed. Since anyone who goes to the courthouse can get a copy of a docket item for fifty cents per page and since the truth is on my side, I will, at least for the time being, post my filings to save folks the trip. I’ll delay the postings to allow time for any other party to receive service before anything appears online.

I do not plan to have any comments on filings when I post them. To do so could give away information on my counsel’s legal strategy which would be useful to the other side.

* * * * *

He really should have taken my settlement offer.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Back in October, 2013, Brett Kimberlin’s lawfare campaign against me was just getting started. He had filed one false criminal complaint which had been declined for lack of evidence and had just filed the first of his vexatious LOLsuits. Eight years ago today, I posted this report In Re Kimberlin v. Walker, et al.

* * * * *

My morning was spent in a strategy meeting with my pro bono local counsel for the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. lawsuit. All the filings necessary at this stage should be delivered to the court before the due date. I have no further comment on the suit for now—except to say there may be interesting news over the next couple of weeks and that my offer to settle the matter for a payment to me of $1,000,000 remains on the table until my lawyer files his appearance on my behalf with the court.

Stay tuned.

* * * * *

Kimberlin would have been much better off if he’d taken me up on that settlement offer.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

The Bonus Team Kimberlin Post of the Day for seven years ago today is an excellent summary of why The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s lawfare has failed.

* * * * *

After two days of trial and enough words to consume over 400 pages of transcript, The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s vexatious Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. lawsuit boiled down to this one sentence finding by Judge Johnson:

There’s not one scintilla of evidence in this case that the statements that were made by these individuals were false.

Res judicata. Collateral estoppel. They should both apply to the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RCIO Madness.

* * * * *

Loser.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

The TKPOTD for seven years ago today showcased a couple of examples of Brett Kimberlin’s incompetence as a litigator.

* * * * *

Witness impeachment is the process of calling into question the credibility of an individual who is testifying in a trial. A party may impeach a witness by cross-examining the witness about facts which reflect poorly on the witness’s credibility. One does not impeach one’s own witnesses on direct examination—unless, of course, you are The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin. This is from his direct examination of Ali Akbar during the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. trial.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Mr. Akbar, have you ever been convicted of a felony?

MR. AKBAR: Yes.

MR. OSTRONIC: Objection.

THE COURT: Sustained.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Your honor, I believe it goes to his honesty.

MR. AKBAR: Going to impeach me?

THE COURT: Well —

MR. OSTRONIC: You called the witness.

THE COURT: What are you impeaching him for? It’s your witness. You’re calling your own witness and impeaching him?

I’m not making this up. TDPK expected to use Ali Akbar’s testimony to get evidence into the record after attempting to impeach him as an unreliable witness. Go figure.

I’ve mentioned in an earlier post that one of the basic rules of examining a witness in court is to never ask a question unless you know what the answer will be. TDPK repeatedly violated that rule.

MR. KIMBERLIN: I’m not asking you to give me a mission statement. I’m asking you —

MR. AKBAR: All right. What was the question again?

MR. KIMBERLIN: — a simple question. You know — have you ever raised, through the National Bloggers Club, or Bomber Sues Bloggers, or Rally.org, any money for any purpose to deal with me, my name, or any of these legal issues?

MR. AKBAR: I’d like to answer no, but clarify, if I may. We’ve raised relief funds for bloggers who have lost their jobs, families who have been attacked, families like mine. My mother and my brother have been attacked by your blog, BreitbartUnmasked.com, and —

MR. KIMBERLIN: I object. I object.

MR. AKBAR: — we’ve raised money. We’ve raised relief money.

THE COURT: Well, this is your question. You wanted to know if he raised any money —

MR. KIMBERLIN: Well, but he’s saying it’s my blog. I didn’t have a blog.

MR. AKBAR: Breitbartunmasked.com.

THE COURT: You can’t — if you think you’re not going to like the answer, don’t ask the question. You asked him if he’d raised the money —

MR. KIMBERLIN: Your honor, I’m just saying, you know, he’s making a statement that’s false.

Accuse the accuser.

So TDPK has said that Breitbart Unmasked isn’t his blog. We’ll see about that.

* * * * *

It’s now fairly well established that Brett Kimberlin exercises effective control over the now fallow Breitbart Unmasked website. I supposed we shouldn’t be surprised when a perjurer tells a lie.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

The one time Brett Kimberlin actually got one of his LOLsuits against me all the way to trial, he tried to use my codefendants, Aaron Walker, Ali Alexander, and Stacy McCain, and me as his witnesses to prove his case. That didn’t go well, and the TKPOTD for seven years ago today dealt with part of the exchange with Stacy McCain.

* * * * *

Here’s another bit of bumbling from The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s direct examination of Stacy McCain during the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. trial.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Okay. And then did you also tweet that “Perhaps Pat Stranahan and that WJJ Hoge can communicate facts to hired liar Monica Hess”?
MR. MCCAIN: Did I tweet that? Are you showing me a tweet? Okay, let me state for the record that this is not — this is — what this is from — can I make the point this is from the site Breitbart Unmasked. Do you agree?
MR. KIMBERLIN: I’m just asking you a simple question —
MR. MCCAIN: No. No. You’re showing me something from another site that you are accused of owning.
MR. KIMBERLIN: No. I’m asking a simple question. Did you tweet —
MR. OSTRONIC: Your honor, I’ll object. It’s an unauthenticated document.
THE COURT: Sustained.
MR. KIMBERLIN: No further questions for this witness.

It is downright foolish to attempt to outcrazy Stacy McCain.

* * * * *

Kimberlin had already filed his RICO Madness LOLsuit which included Stacy as one of the defendants by the time the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. case came to trial. His subsequent LOLsuits were filed after that trial, and Kimberlin never again tried to sue Stacy McCain.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

By this time in 2013, Brett Kimberlin has already filed a false criminal complaint against me and seen it dropped for lack of evidence and he had filed the first of the four LOLsuits he brought against me. The TKPOTD for eight years ago tried to warn him about messing with me.

* * * * *

Brett Kimberlin has a history of trying to use the court system to silence those who he perceives as his enemies, and one sure-fire way to get on his enemies list is to publish the truth about his past or his current activities. His latest bit of lawfare names me along with four other bloggers as a defendant. Gentle Reader, please allow me to make the following points.

1. The case will be disposed of through the courts not the Internet.

2.  Unless advised to do so by my lawyers, I will make no public comments about any pending matter in the case.

3. Tactically, suing me is a dumb move on Kimberlin’s part. He will find that I now have a reason to focus more of my attention on him.

orvilleredenbacher4. Strategically, suing me is an even dumber move. He will now either answer my discovery interrogatories and admissions and produce the documents I seek, or he will have to explain to the court why his suit should not be dismissed.

Here’s the TKPOTD from seven years ago today. It deals with one of the most disgusting episodes in The Saga of The Dread Deadbeat Pirate Pro-Se Kimberlin.

* * * * *

I’ve been listening to the courtroom audio recordings as part of my preparation for the next part of my Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. in Review series. Since those recording are used to product the trial transcript, they include the conversations between the judge and counsels at the bench. I could not hear them in the courtroom because a noise source is turned on by the judge to mask the conversations. Thursday evening was the first time that I became aware of the following:

Brett Kimberlin called his older daughter as a witness. He did so at the end of the presentation of his case. He tried to do so as his first witness, but our lawyer objected. During the interchange at the bench, The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin said that he wanted her to testify to various things which the judge felt were inadmissible because her testimony would be hearsay. TDPK also said he wanted her to testify to the fact that he had not done anything untoward with her. That would have been admissible, but my lawyer agreed that we would stipulate that so there was no reason for her to be called. During the conference at the bench, Judge Johnson remarked,

To put your 15 year old daughter—talk about —talk about harm—to put a 15 year old kid in a courtroom in front of a jury and ask her questions about pedophilia!

Just before he called her, the judge called the counsel up to the bench and tried one more time to dissuade TDPK from calling his daughter.

THE COURT: You know the witness you really need?

KIMBERLIN: Huh?

THE COURT: Is your wife here?

KIMBERLIN: She’s, she’s packing. We’re leaving on vacation tomorrow—

THE COURT: Is she gonna testify? See, that’s —if she were going to testify, that would be one thing, but a 15 year old?

TDPK put her on the stand any way.

* * * * *

I have no words adequate to express my contempt.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Today is the seventh anniversary of the end of the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. trial. After The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin rested his case, Judge Johnson ruled that he hadn’t really presented one because he didn’t bother to offer evidence that any of the statements my codefendants and I had made were false. The suit alleged defamation and false light, and both torts require that the allegedly offending statements be false. We were granted a judgment in our favor. Kimberlin lost.

Judge Johnson was inclined to allow Kimberlin to testify in spite of the then current ban on perjurers’ testimony in Maryland. Kimberlin dodge a perjury trap when we didn’t have to put on our defense. Before the trial resumed, I posted an explanation of what Kimberlin would face on the witness stand: Can #BrettKimberlin Measure Up to Midgett?

* * * * *

It is possible that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin may be allowed to offer some testimony during the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. trial.

TDPK has refused to answer the interrogatories that Aaron Walker, Stacy McCain, and I have sent him as a part of discovery in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit. One of the reasons he initially cited was his Fifth Amendment privilege against self incrimination.

In Midgett v. State, 223 Md. 282 (1960), the Maryland Court of Appeals ruled that there are limits to that privilege.

The bases for the rule are (i) that the witness has the right to determine whether or not to invoke the privilege, not that the rule is for the exclusion of unreliable evidence, and (ii) that the court must be in a position to determine whether the claim of privilege is in good faith or lacks any reasonable basis.

Id., 289. Thus, in order to invoke the privilege during the trial, TDPK will have to convince the judge that he will risk incriminating himself if he truthfully answers questions such as “How old was your wife when you married her?” or “If you have ever denied being sent back to prison for a parole violation in any court since January 1, 2010, explain the material circumstances for why you issued such a denial while under oath.”

Hmmmm.

Also, an order came down in the Kimberlin v. Kimberlin Unmasked copyright LOLsuit denying Kimberlin’s motion for a default judgment.

I reported on both cases, and the news of the order in the copyright case must have really bothered Kimberlin. That post received a comment with some Unfriendly Advice.

Of course, the next day was even worse for Kimberlin. We’ll reminisce about that day in court tomorrow.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Throughout Brett Kimberlin’s career as a pro se litigant he has sought special treatment from the courts. His shenanigans finally caused a couple of courts to take notice. He got special treatment, but not the kind he was asking for. The usual practice in the Circuit Court for Montgomery County was to have whichever judge who was sitting on a particular day handle whatever pretrial motions were being considered that day. Thus, during the pretrial phase of the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance LOLsuit, motions were heard by at least six different judges who were not able to hear the different tales Kimberlin was telling them. That changed with the RICO Retread LOLsuit, and all motions in that and all subsequent cases involving Kimberlin were heard by Judge Michael Mason. That judge also presided at the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. trial.

The U. S. District Court for Maryland caught on the Kimberlin and began assigning all the case he filed to a single judge as well.

Having to appear before a judge who remembered Kimberlin’s previous statements in court really began to crimp Kimberlin’s style, so he tried to have Judge Mason removed from the RICO II Retread LOLsuit. Here’s the TKPOTD for five years ago today.

* * * * *

Last week, Judge Mason denied The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s motion for a new judge in the RICO 2 Retread LOLsuit. Here’s the motion that TPDK filed and that the judge denied.

It’s pretty clear that TDPK is getting desperate.

* * * * *

Kimberlin has settle with a few of the defendants he’s sued since 2012, but he’s never won on the LOLsuits he’s filed since then.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

One of the ways that Brett Kimberlin’s campaign of pro se lawfare backfired was the problems he had with the discovery phase of the LOLsuits. The TKPOTD for seven years ago today dealt with some of the discovery questions he tried to evade.

* * * * *

Here are some other intriguing answers provided by The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin to my Requests for Admissions in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit.Admissions 40_43There’s computer forensic information linking TDPK to both the Breitbart Unmasked accounts. He was photographed outside of Bobby McKey’s on 14 March, 2013. There is eyewitness testimony placing him at CPAC this year.

Notice that he doesn’t deny any of these as he should if they weren’t true. Objecting because of irrelevance is a tacit admission that the statements are true.

* * * * *

It was fortunate for Kimberlin that the judge granted the defendants a direct verdict in our favor after Kimberlin rested his case. Otherwise, he would have had to deal with the defense we had prepared.

Neal Rauhauser was the actual architect of Team Kimberlin’s strategy of using frivolous pro se litigation to harass their perceived enemies. I was on the receiving end of two of The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s RICO LOLsuits, and I wasn’t surprised by the first RICO claim because Rauhauser had tipped their hand over a year in advance. This post about RICO and Patterico is from nine years ago today.

Neal Rauhauser has a pattern of letting things slip through careless blogging, emails, or tweets. Patrick Frey believes he has picked up on plans for a RICO suit targeting him and other bloggers.

Mr. Rauhauser, once you sue, the discovery process will begin. It works both ways. Is that really what you want?

Indeed, only two of the many cases brought by TDPK made it to the discovery phase, and discovery did not go well for Kimberlin in either.

This post titled Electronic Harassment? ran six years ago today after Tetyana Kimberlin filed a false Application for Statement of Charges against me alleging that I had engaged in electronic harassment of her elder daughter. Brett Kimberlin has previously filed a bogus peace order petition against me on behalf of Tetyana’s daughter, but the petition had been denied in both the District and Circuit Courts. Kimberlin’s PR flack Bill Schmalfeldt announce the resulting criminal case.

@GrouchyOldLib201505211659ZI received a summons from the District Court in Rockville to appear on 2 July so that I can be served with a charging document and be advised of my rights. The summons states that there will be a preliminary inquiry and that I will be advised of a future date for a trial if probable cause is found that I may have committed whatever I’m charged with.

I do not plan to make any further substantive public comment on this matter until after I have seen the actual charging document(s) and reviewed them with counsel.

* * * * *

When the complaint for this was was filed, the appeal of the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. case was still in process, the Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club, et al. (I) RICO Madness case had devolved into the Kimberlin v. Frey RICO Remnant case, and the Kimberlin v. Hunton & Williams, et al. RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo and Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club, et al. (II) RICO Retread LOLsuits were still hadn’t been dismissed or gone to summary judgment. However, all those civil case were clearly going poorly for The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin, so the fake criminal complaint was a last gasp attack on me.

Of course, it failed as did all his LOLsuits. Indeed, I never had to respond to the summons because the charge was dropped for lack of evidence before the date of the hearing.

I am the only one of the five defendants in that suit who was willing to settle, and I no longer am willing to do so. I suspect that before the dust settles, Brett Kimberlin will wish he had.

I suppose nonsense like that tweet was meant to create distrust and dissection among the codefendants in The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s LOLsuits. It didn’t work. Nothing in his lawfare campaign did. It was all a failure. His reputation wasn’t vindicated. A court found that it was so bad that he is defamation-proof.

One wonders what they’re thinking over at Breitbart Unmasked? Of if there’re thinking? A few days ago, a post with Xenophon’s byline went up that attempted to appropriate the Acme Law theme that I’ve been using to describe the nonsensical legal theories behind Team Kimberlin’s lawfare and apply it to Aaron Walker’s recently filed memorandum in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. lawsuit. (That’s the suit against Aaron Walker, Stacy McCain, Ali Akbar, Kimberlin Unmasked, and me that accuses us of defaming The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin by writing truthful things about him.)

Now, if Brett Kimberlin is known for anything, it’s for being convicted as the Speedway Bomber and for being the guy who lied about selling marijuana to Dan Quayle. So why, one wonders, would his propaganda website include this LooneyTunes clip in a post?

Yeah, the coyote is fiddling with nitroglycerin and TNT instead of Tovex, but still …

One of the claims that Brett Kimberlin made against my codefendants and me in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance LOLsuit was that we had defamed him by calling him a pedophile. All of the defendants had expressed a belief that Kimberlin is a pedophile or stated that there was evidence for that to be a reasonable opinion. We based our opinions in part on a sworn criminal complaint filed by Kimberlin’s wife. During the Kimberlin v. Walker trial, Judge Johnson pointed out to Kimberlin that the witness he needed to show that our statements were false was his wife, but he didn’t bring her to court.

The TKPOTD from four years ago today explains why he kept her off the witness stand in 2014—something he wasn’t able to do in 2016.

* * * * *

The following question was asked and answered during the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. trial after an extended discussion at the bench. Judge Mason allowed it over Brett Kimberlin’s objection because it could show that Aaron Walker had a reasonable basis for writing what he had written.

MR. WALKER: The question was: You first had sex with your husband before you turned fifteen. Correct?

MRS. KIMBERLIN: Yes.

@Mjanovic201310120129ZYes, my counsel of record in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. lawsuit is pro bono. So are all the members of the team of lawyers from around the country backing him up. (The Popehat Signal is a marvelous thing. Thanks, Ken.) They are lawyers from across the political spectrum with a dedication to the First Amendment who see it as a civic and professional duty to defend it against such egregious attacks as Kimberlin’s.

Half-assed? I don’t think so, but a one-percent-assed effort by the assembled team would probably be sufficient to overcome Kimberlin’s pitiful suit.

Definitely lose? Badly? Well, we will see who winds up owing whom. Even a dismissal could leave Brett Kimberlin responsible for costs and my expenses and legal fees. Legal fees? Yes, legal fees. My lawyer is pro bono for me but not for Kimberlin. Legal fees.

AFTERWORD—Bill Schmalfeldt seems to think that there is some significance to the fact that my lawyer is not a member of the Maryland State Bar Association, a voluntary organization. Membership in that organization should not be confused with being admitted to practice law in Maryland. I wonder if the Cabin Boy is aware that the two Maryland lawyers who are on the board of Velvet Revolution US, Jeffery R. Cohen and Kevin Zeese, also chose not to belong to the Maryland State Bar Association? The Cabin Boy has also noticed that my lawyer is also a CPA. Trust me, Gentle Reader; that’s going to be a plus.

Walker, et al. lawsuit died before the trial stated when Judge McGann threw out five of the seven counts in his complaint on summary judgment. During the trial, Judge Johnson found that TDPK hadn’t presented a “scintilla” of evidence to support the remaining defamation and false light counts and granted a directed verdict in favor of us defendants.

As a matter of law, we defendants now have findings on the merits that we did not engage in malicious prosecution against Brett Kimberlin, that we did not conspire to abuse process against Brett Kimberlin, that we did not defame Brett Kimberlin, that we did not engage in false light invasion of Brett Kimberlin’s privacy, that we did not harass Brett Kimberlin, that we did not intentional inflict emotional distress on Brett Kimberlin, and that that we did not stalk Brett Kimberlin. The claims made by Brett Kimberlin were found to have no basis in fact. That includes the following allegations specifically made in his second amended complaint:

• There is no evidence for his claim that he was assaulted by Aaron Walker.
• There is no evidence for his claim that Aaron Walker or I suborned perjury from Tetyana Kimberlin.
• There is no evidence for his claim that Tetyana Kimberlin’s accusation against him of third degree sexual offense was false.

Furthermore, the court ruled that we did not defame TDPK or place him in a false light when we said or wrote the following things about which he complained in his suit:

• That he caused Aaron Walker to be fired from his job.
• That any of us believe he is a pedophile.
• That he has used mentally abusive tactics against his wife.
• That he is evil.
• That he is a misogynist.
• And all the other things he cited in his second amended complaint.

TDPK’s very own false narrative has been gutted. It’s now roadkill, lying open for all to see. It isn’t pretty. But lies never are when you see them for what they are.

Meanwhile, TDPK has his omnibus answer to all the motions to dismiss in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness due on 15 October.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

Kimberlin is a slow learner. He kept suing bloggers, including me. I argued in subsequent suits that his reputation was so poor because of his history as a serial bomber that it was impossible to defame him, so he had no grounds to sue for defamation. Eventually, one of the courts agreed with me. It granted defendants dismissal for Kimberlin’ failure to state a claim upon which relief could be granted because his reputation made him defamation proof.

It appears that Kimberlin has refrained from further litigation since his Kimberlin v. Breitbart Holdings, et al. RIOC 3 LOLsuit was dismissed, but he’s found other project to fail at. He failed in his election protection activities in 2016. He got scammed out of $9,000 when the dirt he thought he was buying on the Trump administration turned out to be bogus. And it’s been over a week since his @itstime_2020 account had a fresh tweet or picked up a follower. It still only has 2.

Failing failures gotta fail.
