Lying Liars Gotta Lie


The Wall Street Journal reports that Michael Cohen instructed Stephen Ryan, his previous lawyer, to raise the prospect of a pardon after the FBI raided Cohen’s home last April. That statement by lawyer Lanny Davis, who now represents Cohen, directly contradicts Cohen’s testimony to the House Oversight and Reform Committee on 27 February.

Cohen: “I have never asked for, nor would I accept, a pardon from Mr. Trump.”

Davis: “During that time period, [Cohen] directed his attorney to explore possibilities of a pardon at one point with Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani as well as other lawyers advising President Trump.”

Cohen has pleaded guilty to lying to Congress, but he has now flipped on his former client Donald Trump, so it makes sense that the Democrats on the House Oversight Committee would give him a forum for further lies.

I’m not the only person who views The Dread Deadbeat Prevaricator Kimberlin as a liar. Mark Singer, the author of Citizen K, Kimberlin’s authorized biography, believes he was lied to by his subject. The TKPOTD from five years ago today deals with one of the lies Singer caught. It relates to Kimberlin’s drug dealing in Bloomington and his perjury conviction. As you’ll see below, my own research verified Singer’s.

* * * * *

Brett Kimberlin got caught lying to a federal grand jury and wound up convicted of perjury. He was asked about his dealing LSD to a two guys named John Buckley and David Pacific. He claimed, based on the fact that the Indiana State Police had busted Buckley and Pacific for attempting to operate a lab to produce psilocybin, that they were making LSD.

During a July, 1972, sentencing hearing for a cocaine bust while he was a juvenile, Kimberlin was asked:

Q. Did you ever sell any LSD to David Pacific or Jenkins, John Jenkins?
A. No, I wouldn’t be selling it to Pacific or John Buckley because they are the ones that had the laboratory, they are the ones that made it all. If I was to do anything I would get it from them. That’s my answer.

He repeated that testimony in October before a grand jury. A second grand jury was convened, and it indicted Kimberlin for perjury. He was convicted.

Through the years, Kimberlin has claimed that Buckley and Pacific lied about him as part of a deal with the feds. When he was working with his biographer Mark Singer, Kimberlin claimed that Cody Shearer, one of the people who had helped him promote his tale about selling marijuana to Dan Quayle, had confronted Buckley and Pacific and that they had acknowledge lying. When Singer checked with Shearer, Shearer said that he had never discussed LSD or perjury with them.

Beginning at the bottom of p. 316 in Citizen K, Mark Singer writes:

Sifting through this heap of mendacity , I asked myself whether Kimberlin lies for sport or whether an assortment of small lies coalesced into a gang of tar babies that encircled him. When I first heard about Pacific and Buckley, they amounted to an interesting brick in my wall; their role in Kimberlin’s life never rose to a sinister level. Ultimately, they signified his willingness to stay wedded to a falsehood despite black-and-white evidence to the contrary. My metaphor metamorphosed. The Pacific-Buckley factoid—the news report of their arrest, along with Kimberlin’s claim of their perjury to frame him for same—was no longer a constructive brick but one of many blind turns in a labyrinth of misinformation.

Or to put it more simply: Brett Kimberlin tells lies, and he seems to do so even when he knows there is documentary evidence proving him a liar.

I was able to confirm Singer’s findings via my own personal contacts from Bloomington.

I began dating Mrs. Hoge just as she was finishing her degree in Audio Production from Indiana University in Bloomington. While she was in school, she worked part-time doing audio work at various music venues around Bloomington, often working for the sound company owned by David Pacific. I wound up meeting both Pacific and Buckley during visits with Connie almost 40 years ago. One day, it may be useful to share more of what I know through my Bloomington connections.

The TKPOTD from dealt with The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s projection of harassment and false narratives onto the targets of his vexatious LOLsuits.

* * * * *

Harassment and False Narratives are two of the recurring themes in The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s pleadings he files in all his vexatious lawsuits. He’s now filed what he hopes will be his second amended complaint in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness, and both Harass/Harassment and False Narrative(s) appear throughout the 80+ pages of the document.

Care to guess how many times each appears?

Lying liars gotta lie, and they also seem to have to accuse folks who tell the truth of telling lies instead. Bill Schmalfeldt is a textbook example of that proposition, as a post called Provable Lies from a couple of years ago demonstrates.

* * * * *

Bill Schmalfeldt is a liar, and some of the biggest whoppers he’s told are his claims to have found “provable lies” that others have told about him. The Cabin Boy™ would have the world believe that every hearing or trial that has gone against him has been the result of lying by his adversaries.

Most recently, he’s put out a podcast asserting that he’s found nine such lies that were told by Sarah Palmer during the North Carolina hearing that resulted in restraining orders number 8 and 9 against the Cabin Boy™. I listened to the audio he posted. I’ve also seen the documentary evidence that Mrs. Palmer used during the hearing. That evidence backs up what she said. She didn’t lie. Rather, Schmalfeldt appears to be lying about her.

When Schmalfeldt claimed Lynn Thomas was lying, it turned out that it was Schmalfeldt who had forged a set of emails.

When Schmalfeldt claimed that Scott Hinckley was lying, it turned out that Mr. Hinckley had documentary evidence to back up what he had said in court.

When Schmalfeldt claimed that the Causey’s had lied about phone calls he had made, there was documentary evidence to back them up.

When Schmalfeldt claimed that I had lied during the hearing for the extension of the first peace order and tried the file a perjury charge against me, the Commissioner found there was no probable cause and denied his Application for Statement of Charges.

When Schmalfedt claimed that he had found twenty-four lies in my answer to his motion to modify the first peace order that would result in my being led away from the courthouse “in irons,” he failed to raise a single one of them during the hearing on his motion.

During the District Court trial for the first peace order, Schmalfeldt lied about having received notice to stop contacting me. During the de novo appeal trial in the Circuit Court one of his tweets acknowledging the notice was introduced into evidence, and the order was granted. That resulted in the Cabin Boy™ spreading the lie that my lawyer and I had misrepresented the nature of Twitter to the judge, when what we really said was that I had no more obligation to block someone on Twitter than I would have had to change my phone number to avoid contact—that it was the Cabin Boy™ obligation to leave me alone. He’s still telling that lie today rather than face the truth that he is an adjudicated harasser.

Judges in five states have weighted the testimony of witnesses appearing before them and reviewed documentary evidence, and those judges have found the witnesses and evidence credible. No one has to lie about Bill Schmalfeldt in court. The truth is sufficiently devastating to his cause.

* * * * *

I should update that last paragraph. Thus far, judges in seven states have weighed the evidence before them and found the Cabin Boy’s™ statements non-credible, and so have police agencies of at least four states and the federal government.

Will he be able to move enough times to collect losses in all 50 states?

Stay tuned.

One of the tactical errors that The Dread Deadbeat Kimberlin committed in the early stages of his lawfare was filing his LOLsuits in Maryland. That state had a prohibition on testimony by perjurers, and TDPK had a perjury conviction on his rap sheet. After my lawyer used that statute to keep Kimberlin from testifying, the whining began. This Prevarication Du Jour from four years ago dealt with how Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Brett Unread lied about Kimberlin’s legal disability.

* * * * *

As I mentioned yesterday, Xenophon (the Troll) keeps writing hallucinatory fiction about Brett Kimberlin’s lawsuits and the facts surrounding them over at Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it.). For example,BU20131216a

Actually, I was the first person to use Maryland’s law prohibiting a convicted perjurer from offering testimony to stop The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin from testifying. That disability has been on the books in Maryland for around 150 years, and when a local prosecutor pointed it out to me, I made sure that my lawyer was aware of TDPK’s status.

Since that trial, Kimberlin has gone on record admitting his perjury conviction, and he’s tried to argue that it violates his rights. However, the law is settled on the matter. Perjurers may not testify in Maryland courts. Period. BTW, Maryland is not the only state with that rule.

In the current Maryland lawsuit, TDPK is the plaintiff, and Aaron Walker is one of the defendants. Mr. Walker’s raising of the issue does not “prevent Kimberlin from being able to defend himself in court.” Rather, it prevents him from using his own testimony to attack Mr. Walker in the frivolous and vexatious Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. suit.

(You can help Aaron Walker, Stacy McCain, Ali Akbar, Kimberlin Unmasked, and me defend ourselves in that lawsuit. Go to Bomber Sues Bloggers to find out how.) [That link is now dead. Thank you to everyone who donated via that site to help with the expenses of our defense.-wjjh]

Perhaps this reveals the real reason for the federal RICO lawsuit. TDPK may be venue shopping to find a place where he can testify. But why would that be important? Certainly, if his case were righteous, there would be documentary support for it. After all, it’s mostly about what people have written. And surely, there would be someone who could offer testimony on his behalf.

Unless, of course, the written evidence doesn’t support his allegations, and he can’t find anyone willing to lie for him.

* * * * *

Maryland was the last state to repeal the prohibition on testimony by perjurers. The bill was introduced by the state senator representing the district in which Kimberlin lives, and the repeal should probably be referred to as “Brett’s Law.” Tactically, the repeal came at an inopportune time for Kimberlin because it allowed persons suing him to put him on the stand as a witness—something that did not help his credibility.

Lying liars gotta lie.

Yesterday, I reviewed the transcript of the Kimberlin v. Hoge peace order appeal trial that was held in the Circuit Court for Montgomery County in 2015. It was held before The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s State Senator introduced the bill that removed Maryland’s prohibition on testimony by convicted perjurers, and I was struck that about a quarter of the proceeding dealt with whether Brett Kimberlin would be allowed to testify. He wasn’t.

He had also expected to act as counsel for his daughter in the case, but that was dealt with quickly.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Yeah, but somebody has to present the case. I have all the evidence. I have all the documents, you know, and —

THE COURT: Okay. But you could have hired an attorney for your daughter.

MR. KIMBERLIN: I could have hired an attorney, I guess, but I haven’t had, I didn’t do that in the District Court, and the District Court let me present all the evidence that I’m going to present here. And you know, I mean, how can you — a father has a right to, to come in and present his case for the daughter. I mean, it’s, that’s elementary. It’s, I mean, she, she can’t do it herself.

THE COURT: You know, I don’t know. You do have a problem here which, if you had hired an attorney, you wouldn’t have the problem.

So I’m not going to allow you to act as a lawyer. You’re not barred in the State of Maryland. You really can’t act as an attorney for your daughter. And I think the cases make — as I said, conflict with the statute, but they make you incompetent to testify, so I don’t know in what capacity you’d be filling me in on what your daughter’s case is.

Can’t be a lawyer, since you’re not barred. Can’t be a witness.

The District Court’s denial of the peace order petition was upheld.

Everything proceeded as I had foreseen.

Legal LULZ Du Jour


The Gentle Reader who has been following The Tale of <sarc>Brave</sarc> Sir Robin William for a while has probably noticed how often he claims that his adversary du jour is lying and will surely be facing perjury charges. For example, when I opposed his (later denied) motion to modify the first peace order slapped on him, he claimed to have found 24 lies in my lawyer’s opposition and tweeted this—That his motion was denied and the peace order later extended should be a hint to the Gentle Reader as to who the court found was telling the truth and who the court believed wasn’t.

Immediately after the December, 2013, hearing renewing the first peace order, The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt went to the District Court Commissioner in Westminster and filed an Application for Statement of Charges against me for perjury during the hearing. The Commissioner declined to charge me.No, the Cabin Boy’s™ arsenal includes much more than stalking and harassment. False accusations of perjury are among his many weapons. And running away in the end.
