The basic theory behind Team Kimberlin’s use of lawfare to try to silence their critics was that the uncertainty and expense of litigation would cause the targeted defendants to settle. A few did as business decision to minimize their out-of-pocket costs. Most of us didn’t because we viewed protecting our First Amendment rights as worth the cost and effort. This Prevarication Du Jour from five years ago today dealt with one of Bill Schmalfeldt’s attempts to appear in control of his narrative.

Hogewash! is still here, but Cheddar Injection is long gone. It folded even before the Cabin Boy™ had to leave Wisconsin. He’s been quite mobile for the past few years. IIRC, he’s had to move through an even greater number of states than the number in which he collected restraining orders.
Alinsky’s Rule 5 says, “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon,” and pointage, laughery, and mockification has always been a part of this blog’s pushback against Team Kimberlin. One of the recurring themes has been to suggest that the Gentle Reader have a good supply of popcorn (or other entertainment treats) on hand while watching The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin flail away at his lawfare. That theme became enough of an annoyance to Kimberlin that he complained about it in various court filings. Eight years ago today, Hogewash! ran this post, Dread Pirate #BrettKimberlin and Four Food Groups.
The Revolution has come to Seattle as a group of secessionist rioters have set up something they are calling the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone. One of their first acts was to build a wall to control immigration. Another was to seek foreign aid because of a famine.
I’d send them some popcorn, but all mine has butter, and that’s an animal product, and they seem to be vegans. I guess I’ll just have to throw another bag in the microwave and eat it myself.
