Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One of the consistent themes put forward by Team Kimberlin is that they are the victims of false narratives and that their defeats in court have been the result of unfair treatment by judges or cheating by the opposing parties. The Legal LULZ Du Jour from three years ago dealt with one example of such a silly claim. Note: The “Lynn” referred to in the first tweet is a woman who wound up getting a restraining order against Bill Schmalfeldt.

Thus tweeteth the Cabin Boy™—dbr201512111512Zdbr201512111514ZLet’s see … the last time the Cabin Boy™ sued me … oh, yeah, that was the LOLsuit in the Circuit Court for Howard County. Now, how did that go?

Yeah, I remember now. Judge Kramer dismissed the suit against the out-of-state defendants because The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt had failed to serve them, and she dismissed the case against me because I was being sued in the wrong county. Now, I’m pretty sure that I told the judge that I lived in Carroll County and didn’t work in Howard County, and I didn’t lie about that.

Hmmmm.dbr201512111516ZIt must be some technicality under Acme Law that makes living outside of Howard County a form of cheating. Still, I don’t remember any sense of humiliation as a result of winning.

Perhaps I’m not the one with a progressive brain disorder.

*yawn*

The Truth is not Team Kimberlin’s friend.

Oh, and the Cabin Boy™ sued me once more. I was a defendant in LOLsuit VIII: Avoiding Contact. That case was dismissed against me because of the court’s lack of personal jurisdiction, i.e., Schmalfeldt sued me in the wrong court. Again.

Come to think of it, the state law claims that The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin tried to bring against me in the RICO Madness and RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuits were also dismissed because the U. S. District Court lacked jurisdiction. The RICO Retread LOLsuit could have been dismissed in state court for improper venue, but the judge dismissed it for failure to state a claim in order for the dismissal to be with prejudice.

Incompetent cases filed in the wrong courts. It’s almost as if there’s a pattern here.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin conducted his lawfare campaign aimed at silencing his critics in an unorthodox manner. That led to questions being asked whether there was method to his madness or whether he was simply incompetent. The TKPOTD from four years ago today (which was a Wednesday) dealt with those questions in the context of his RICO Madness LOLsuit.

* * * * *

Today, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and then time’s up. The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin will need to have his omnibus opposition to the motions to dismiss his Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness to the court by close of business next Monday. With that kind of time pressure, one wonders why he has wasted time on side issues such as the letter he sent to Judge Hazel concerning early discovery related to Ace’s ID.

I’ve heard several theories advanced.

The first is based on the idea that TDPK believes that the case is doomed and that the judge is going to grant the motions to dismiss. He’s trying for early discovery related to Ace’s identity because he thinks it’s his only shot.

A second theory is somewhat similar, except that it is based on the suspicion that TDPK is purposely blowing the case in order avoid being subjected to discovery by the defendants and that he’s trying to get the info on Ace before the case is thrown out.

timer-blackI’m not sure that I buy either. From what I’ve seen, Brett Kimberlin is a fairly disorganized doofus. The simplest explanation is that he simply hasn’t spent his time wisely.

Meanwhile, the timer is ticking down.

Stay tuned.

* * * * *

Upon reflection, I come down on the side of TDPK being incompetent. Hanlon’s Razor states that one should never attribute malice to that which can be adequately explained by incompetence, but in Kimberlin’s case I believe we see an example of malicious incompetence. His life seems to be an example of the Dunning-Kruger Effect on steroids. Grandiosity and delusions of adequacy appear to be root causes of all his failures, whether as a dope smuggler, a serial bomber, a pro-se litigant, or a political operative.

Losing losers gotta lose.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One of The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s problems might be delusions of significance. He seems to want to be important, to be a player, but he’s really any big deal. Oh, he manages to stir up trouble, but clumsily. When society acts to put him back in his place, he bristles. When people write truthfully about his ludicrous attempt to be somebody, he has sued for defamation. The TKPOTD from four years ago today deals with one of the patently ridiculous claims from his RICO Madness LOLsuit.

* * * * *

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin seems to project his own behavior onto others.ECF 135-124That’s from his second amended complaint for his Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness. It doesn’t pass the giggle test, especially with respect to Glenn Beck, Michelle Malkin, The Franklin Center, or RedState. No one in his right mind would believe that their coverage of Brett Kimberlin has had any significant effect on their Internet presence.

Yes, my coverage of TDPK has probably generated a significant percentage of the interest in Hogewash!, but I’ve published a mix of documented facts and satire. What few errors I’ve published have been corrected when they were verified. That doesn’t qualify as creating false narratives.

OTOH, many of the fundraising websites with DONATE buttons that benefit Justice Through Music Project … well, let’s just say they are very selective in what truth they might contain. False narratives? That’s not for me to say, but they don’t strike me as trustworthy.

timer-blackMeanwhile, the timer is ticking down. TDPK’s omnibus opposition to all the motions to dismiss his RICO Madness are due at close of business two weeks from today. Perhaps he will find some creative way to explain to the court why his paragraph 124 supports a claim upon which relief can be granted. He might even surprise us with a truthful narrative to support him claims.

Don’t hold your breath.

* * * * *

As the Gentle Reader who has followed The Saga of Team Kimberlin for a while knows, TDPK was unable to make good on the allegation in paragraph 124, and all the counts in the RICO Madness LOLsuit relating to it were dismissed, the federal claims with prejudice and the state claims with leave to file in state court. His case failed in state court as well.

Losing losers gotta lose.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin has constantly whined about the “false narratives” being used to defame him. In reality, his LOLsuits have been nothing but made-up stories spun without any supporting evidence. The TKPOTD from four years ago today cited one example.

* * * * *

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has about two-and-a-half weeks left to try to find enough well-plead allegations in his second amended complaint to cobble together the elements of at least one of the counts for his Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness. If he wants to keep me as a defendant, he has to make one of the three federal claims work. That’s because he and I are both residents of Maryland, and he can’t sue me in federal court if all he has are state law claims.

Here’s one of the allegations he might try to use to support one of the federal counts—ECF 135-99

So what? FBI agents interview people all the time. Considering that three people, Patrick Frey, Erick Erickson, and Aaron Walker, who had criticized Brett Kimberlin or beat him in court had been SWATted, asking TDPK what he might know about the situation was not an unreasonable thing for someone investigating those SWATtings to do.

So far as I know, no one has every specifically accused Brett Kimberlin of making those SWATting calls or having another person do it for him. I can understand why someone might be suspicious. As Ian Fleming famously wrote: “Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. Three times is enemy action.”

timer-blackTDPK has whined a lot about “false narratives,” but he’s never specified which defendant said what when to whom in any way that actually accused him of being the SWATter. That’s not in his original, first amended, or second amended complaints. He’s not supposed to get any more amendments, so it’s too late to change his tale. Time is ticking down.

Of course, he could just dismiss the suit, but his ego probably won’t permit that.

Stay tuned.

* * * * *

Of course, the federal counts Kimberlin’s RICO Madness LOLsuit were dismissed against me for failure to state a claim upon which relief could be granted, and his follow state RICO Retread LOLsuit was dismissed for the same reason.

False narratives. I wonder how TDPK would characterize the bogus documents he bought for $9,000 back in 2017.

UPDATE—Oh, look! Mr. Down Twinkles is back and has hit the Thumbs Down button.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Perhaps one of the reasons that The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin has been slacking off on his promise of lawsuits “for the rest of their lives” against the original defendants in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance LOLsuit is that he’s figured out that he can’t beat us. After he made the mistake of calling Stacy McCain as witness in the first LOLsuit (never try to outcrazy Stacy McCain), he dropped Stacy from the cases filed after August, 2014. After he lost both the federal and state Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club, et al. RICO Madness and RICO Retread LOLsuits, he dropped Ali Alexander and Aaron Walker from further cases. Finally, after losing the Kimberlin v. Hunton & Williams, et al. RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuit, he dropped me from the follow-on RICO 2 Retread state case.

The RICO 2 Retread LOLsuit sputtered, and by this time a couple of years ago, it was on its last leg as was reported in the TKPOTD from two years ago today.

* * * * *

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has filed a motion seeking a postponement of the motions hearing scheduled for 15 November in the Kimberlin v. Hunton & Williams LLP, et al. (II) RICO 2 Retread LOLsuit. That’s the state version of the Team Themis LOLsuit filed in the Circuit Court for Montgomery County. The only remaining defendants are Bill Nickless, Battelle (the not-for-profit that runs Pacific Northwest National Labs for the Department of Energy), and some John Does. Judge Mason hasn’t granted his motion yet, so it looks as if the remaining motions to dismiss will be heard next week, and another of TDPK’s LOLsuits should bite the dust.

We’ll see.

* * * * *

We didn’t have to wait long. Not long thereafter, the case docket showed that Kimberlin had voluntarily dismissed the LOLsuit against those defendants. And then he failed to follow through with an appeal.

Maybe he was lying when he promised lawsuits “for the rest of their lives.” He is a convicted perjurer, you know.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Cabin Boy™ Bill Schmalfeldt famously described Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Brett Unread as his “prime source for news, hearsay, lies and innuendo. Oh, yeah, and smears, too.” For the vanishingly small number of people who occasionally look at the site, its false narratives are more typically the subject of pointage, laughery, and mockification. Almost anything found there is mind-bogglingly wrong. This Prevarication Du Jour from five years ago today cites but one example.

* * * * *

Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it.) is now featuring a sockpuppet “lawyer” in its comment section called RogerS. (H/T, Patterico). Here’s the beginning of one his bits of “advice” to The Dread Pirate Kimberlin concerning the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO suit.BU_RogerS201310220228Z

I certainly hope that TDPK takes that advice about getting the FBI involved in investigating his claims. Of course, that’s not going to occur. The last thing Brett Kimberlin wants is the FBI looking into what’s been happening.

And it’s almost a shame that TDPK has used up the one amendment (without court permission) to his complaint allowed under Rule 15. There are a lot of people who would pay to see Ken White go after Kimberlin in court.

Lame.

* * * * *

Yeah. I would pay good money to see Ken White go after Brett Kimberlin in court. Who knows …

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Matt Osborne (aka Bunny Boy, 57F Osborne) has spent a good deal of his time as a member of Team Kimberlin trying to sell various lies in support of Brett Kimberlin’s false narratives. After Kimberlin contacted Stacy McCain’s wife’s employer (a private boarding school) in 2012, Stacy felt is was necessary to move his family to a new, confidential location for their safety and the school’s. (The Gentle Reader should remember that this was during the period when Mike Stack, Patrick Frey, Erick Erickson, and Aaron Walker were SWATted.) Stacy asked for help with moving expenses, and many of his readers hit his tip jar. Team Kimberlin tried to spin that request for moving help as a scam, claiming that the McCain family had never moved. Even a year later, Bunny Boy was still trying to peddle that story. I pointed out his lie in this Prevarication Du Jour that ran five years ago today.

* * * * *

Matt Osborne is still trying to peddle the lie that Stacy McCain lives on a private school compound in Hagerstown, Maryland. This is from a post over at his Osborne Ink site (No, I won’t link to it.).OsborneInk 20131024I have been to Stacy McCain’s house. It is not in Maryland. Period.

Stacy really did move his family from Hagerstown almost a year-and-a-half ago. I was one of the people who contributed money to help with the move. Neither I nor any of the other donors who hit his tip jar to help with the move was defrauded, the bogus scenario spun by Team Kimberlin not withstanding.

Fail.

* * * * *

The place Stacy initially found was really too small for his family, so he has since moved on to another undisclosed location.

BTW, the fact that The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin was never able to serve court papers on Stacy at his old address should have been a clue that he had moved. Also, TDPK’s continued insistence that Stacy lived in Maryland was one of the reason his RICO Madness LOLsuit was dismissed. This is from Judge Hazel’s Order dismissing the case–

Nothing proceeds as Team Kimberlin hallucinates.
