The proof that Brett Kimberlin is an incompetent liar is found in the large number of mind-boggling transparent fibs he tells. The TKPOTD for eight years ago today dealt with one those false narratives.

* * * * *

Here’s another whopper from one of The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s court filings. 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 29-22TDPK asserts that I was in on his mythical fraudulent fund raising on behalf of National Bloggers Club in May, 2012. I was a newbie who hadn’t heard of NBC back them.

The real hoot is the “media report” he cites as Exhibit J. It’s supposed to show what we were seeing in the media back in May. The report is dated August.

Then there’s the question of the reliability of the report. It’s from Matt Osborne quoting Bill Schmalfeldt and Breitbart Unmasked as sources.

I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried.

One of the project I worked on at NASA was a navigation system for a constellation of satellites that used GPS to allow each of them to be aware of the others’ time and relative dimensions in space. However, I’ve never had access to a TARDIS of the sort required to make the claim allegedly supported by Exhibit J be true.

Brett Kimberlin’s reputation for trying to play games with service of court documents was well established long before he sued me. The TKPOTD for eight years ago today dealt with one of the precautions required to minimize the adverse effects of his dishonesty.

* * * * *

Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)(3) requires that “factual contentions have evidentiary support.” Here’s an allegation that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin made in one of his filings in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness that has no basis in fact and for which TDPK can not have any evidence.ECF 49-5The only truthful part of that sentence is that I refuse to accept service via email from Brett Kimberlin. The precautions that I have taken securing the devices I use to access my email are very, very robust. Of course, nothing’s perfect, but I doubt that any the hacker wannabes in Team Kimberlin could breach those walls. The only undelivered mail from TDPK that I failed to pick up at the Post Office was addressed to and was being held for 29 Ridge Road. I live at 20 Ridge Road.

OK, why do I insist on service via mail? I do so because I want to be served a hard copy that was generated by TDPK. That way, if it doesn’t match what was sent to the court (and there have been multiple instances of altered documents in both the state and RICO cases), I can show the court what I received. This procedure strikes me as a reasonable method of dealing with a guy who has a long and apparently continuing history of perjury and forgery.

Speaking of lying forgers, I have adopted the same policy for service of court papers from The Dread Pro-Se Schmalfledt.™

The real underlying basis for Brett Kimberlin’s campaign of lawfare against people reporting truthful things about him and his activities was his butthurt over being exposed for who he is. The TKPOTD for eight years ago offered him some relief.

* * * * *

PreparationH96ctJudge Grimm does not seem inclined to provide any temporary relief for The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s butthurt. He has denied TDPK’s request for file a sanctions motion against the lawyer representing Twitchy. However, Amazon offers this remedy—

* * * * *

Of course, butthurt is not a proper cause of action for a civil suit, so The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s LOLsuits were doomed from the start.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin’s worst mistake in all of his lawfare over the past decade was suing me. I was the first defendant to raise the argument that his reputation as a violent felon so bad that it was impossible to degrade it. The TKPOTD for eight years ago today outlined my argument.

* * * * *

Here is another selection from my reply to The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s opposition to the motions to dismiss from Aaron Walker and me in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness.ECF 56-p10

* * * * *

In fact, another group of defendants’ motion to dismiss the subsequent RICO Retread LOLsuit in state court was granted in part because the judge in the case found that Kimberlin was defamation proof before my similar motion was granted. But a court has now found that Kimberlin’s reputation bars any viable claim for defamation.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin is a slow learner. Even after losing his first state LOLsuit against a group of defendants which included me and his first federal RICO LOLsuit against a larger group of defendants which included me, he refilled the state claims from that federal case against most of the us. Yet Another LOLsuit from seven years ago today was about that second state case.

* * * * *

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has filed state law claims from his Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness in the Circuit Court for Montgomery County. He’s named the following defendants: National Bloggers Club, Ali Akbar, Patrick Frey, Erick Erickson, Michelle Malkin, Glenn Beck, Aaron Walker, Yours Truly, Lee Stranahan, Mandy Nagy, Breitbart.com (sic), DB Capitol Strategies, Dan Backer, Mercury Radio Arts, Blaze (sic), Ace of Spade (the blog), Ace of Spades (the blogger), RedState, and Twitchy.

The suit claims are for Defamation of Character, Invasion of Privacy (mentioned twice), Interference with Business Relations, Interference (with what is unspecified), Battery, Infliction of Emotional Distress, and Conspiracy.

That’s as much as I can gather from the Maryland Judiciary Case Search online database. I can’t make any further substantive comment about this LOLsuit until I’ve reviewed the complaint with counsel.

Comments are open, and suggestions for a working name for this LOLsuit are solicited. Please keep it clean.

UPDATE—TDPK forgot to add Mopery with Intent to Lurk again.

* * * * *

He really screwed up by filing that second state case. As part of dismissing the suit for failure to state a claim upon which relief could be granted, the judge found that Kimberlin’s claims for defamation failed because his reputation as an infamous criminal was so poor that he was defamation proof.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

One of the problems Brett Kimberlin has had with his pro se lawfare is that he’s routinely failed to address issue raised by the defendants in their court papers. The TKPOTD from seven years ago today cites an example.

* * * * *

Apparently, The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has never read any of the motions to dismiss filed in hid vexatious Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness.ECF 119-3

Oh, yes we have. For example, here’s a brief selection from my motion to dismiss that deals with the lack of merit of his defamation claim.ECF 5-33Here’s a sample from DB Capitol Strategies’s motion to dismiss dealing with problems in TDPK’s false light allegations.ECF 8-VIHere’s a part of what The Franklin Center had to say about the inadequacy of TDPK’s defamation claim.ECF 16-1Among many other issues, The motion from Michelle Malkin and Twitchy noted this deficiency in TDPK’s allegations under the Ku Klux Klan Act.ECF 41-DAnd so on and so on, through the motions from Aaron Walker; RedState, Erick Erickson, RedState, James O’Keefe, and Simon & Schuster; and Glenn Beck, Mercury Radio Arts, and The Blaze.

It’s not the case that we defendants failed to point out the lack of merit in TDPK case. Rather, Brett Kimberlin chose not to correct his errors.

RICO claims must deal with damage to a person’s business or property, and Brett Kimberlin’s RICO LOLsuits have failed because he’s never alleged to have suffered such an injury. This is the TKPOTD from seven years ago today.

* * * * *

While rereading Judge Hazel’s Memorandum Opinion dismissing the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness, I was struck by this sentence.

It bears noting that Kimberlin’s § 1962(c) claim reflects more of an attempt to spin an alleged scheme to harm his reputation than it reflects a viable RICO claim.

Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club, et al., Case No. 13-CV-03059-GJH, ECF No. 263 (D.Md. 2015) at 17.

Brett Kimberlin is a failure. The TKPOTD for seven years ago today dealt with his attempt to blame other for his failed attempts at a musical career.

Here is one of the allegations The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin made in his Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness which was recently dismissed.

ECF 231 EX7-9Personally, I believe that the implosion of his musical career was caused by his music videos being exposed to the public on the likes of YouTube, but, whatever the reason, it is true that his “appeal is becoming more selective.”

This TKPOTD from seven years ago today is one of my favorites.

Here is what Judge Hazel has had to say about The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s RICO Madness—

Kimberlin failed to plead … Kimberlin has failed to adequately plead … Kimberlin has failed to state a claim … Kimberlin has failed to allege … Kimberlin has therefore failed to plead … Kimberlin has failed to adequately plead … he has failed … he has failed … He has failed to do so … the SAC fails to allege … Kimberlin has therefore failed … Kimberlin has failed … Kimberlin has therefore failed to plead … Kimberlin has failed … his SAC failed to identify … attempt would also fail … Kimberlin has therefore failed … Kimberlin failed … necessarily must fail … he has failed … Kimberlin has failed to adequately plead … claim would still fail … Kimberlin has failed … Kimberlin has failed … would still fail … Kimberlin has failed … Kimberlin has failed to allege … Kimberlin has therefore failed … has failed to state a claim … because he has “fail[ed] to plead facts” … must be dismissed as he has failed to plead facts … Kimberlin has failed … dismissal of § 1985(2) claim for failure to allege … his failure … Kimberlin has failed to state claims …

Plaintiff is mistaken.

Yep, that about covers it.

Yes, it does.

One of the things that Brett Kimberlin seems to have learned during his past decade of lawfare is that he is an incompetent litigator. This is probably why he has kept asking the Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit to give him a freebie lawyer to help with his appeals.

Of course, mockery of the shoddiness of Kimberlin’s court fillings has been a part the coverage of Kimberlin’s lawfare here at Hogewash!, as can been seen in this TKPOTD from seven years ago today.

* * * * *

Judge Grimm hasn’t yet granted The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s Motion to File Second Amended Complaint in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness. He may not. One reason he may not is that the complaint does not comply with Local Rule 103.6. That rule requires that a marked up version of the proposed amended filing be provided along with a clean copy. This allows ready comparison between the existing pleading and the proposed one.

The markup is supposed to identify all the new material with boldface type or underlining and show the deleted text enclosed in brackets or as strikethrough text. TDPK markup is full of errors.

For example, in the caption on the first page TDPK added Twitchy as a defendant, but did not put its name in boldface or underline it. He did use boldface for the other new defendants.

And then there’s the very first sentence …firstsentenceThe marked up Second Amended Complaint is full of similar errors all the way to the end. One whole new section isn’t identified as a change. And in the prayer for relief at the end, TDPK changed the amount of damages sought without flagging it.

He changed “and amount exceeding $75,000” to “an amount exceeding $75,000, that is $2,000.000.” (sic) BTW, with that decimal point in place, the amount sought is two-thousand and not two-million dollars.

T. S. Eliot wrote that April is the cruelest month. Brett Kimberlin might reasonably disagree and nominate March instead. The TKPOTD for seven years ago today catalogs some of Kimberlin’s losses during March.

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has had it rough the last few days. First, he lost his attempt at getting a peace order against me. Next, the false and misleading nature of the tweet he used as evidence during the peace order trial came out, gutting what little case he had. (This may explain why nothing about an appeal or perjury charges against me has appeared in the Maryland Case Search database yet).

The big whammy came day before yesterday when Judge Hazel put TDPK’s RICO Madness out of it’s misery, dismissing all the counts against all the defendants except for the civil rights claim against Patrick Frey. (Go hit Patterico’s tip jar.) That happened just as TDPK was filing RICO2 which I will call Kimberlin v. Team Themis, et al.

I’m the only defendant in common between the two RICO suits, and having me in RICO2 is going to be more problems for TDPK than he can imagine.

Stay tuned.

Brett Kimberlin’s first felony conviction was for perjury, and he has continued to lie in court filings and when giving sworn testimony. The TKPOTD for eight years ago cataloged one lie included in the second amended complaint of his RICO Madness LOLsuit.

* * * * *

RICOMadnessHere’s a flat-out lie from the Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s second amended complaint in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness. It’s found in paragraph 80.ECF 100-1-80I have written a total of exactly three point zero blog posts that mention Montgomery State’s Attorney John McCarthy. None of them call on anyone to contact him. They do ask why Mr. McCarthy’s office has neglected to prosecute TDPK for perjury.

Until now, I have never actually advocated that TDPK be charged with perjury in Montgomery County. But now I do. I believe that the Montgomery State’s Attorney’s Office ought to get off their butts and file perjury charges against Brett Kimberlin before the stature of limitations runs out on some of the false testimony I believe I heard him give last year.

I’ve never advocated here at Hogewash! that anyone contact Mr. McCarthy regarding prosecution of Brett Kimberlin, and I still do not advocate such behavior. The Gentle Reader should not waste his time.

It deals with Certified Mail green card that supposedly verified service to Ali Akbar. The Gentle Reader may notice the PACER caption at the page break. This because the same card was also used to try to verify service in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness.ECF 124-p2He’s bad liar and a bad forger.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

One of the reasons that almost none of Team Kimberlin’s LOLsuits made it past motions to dismiss was that their complaints and other early filings were magnificently deficient. The TKPOTD from seven years ago today dealt with one of the most brazenly stupid claim Brett Kimberlin made.

* * * * *

This paragraph is from The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s opposition to Stacy McCain’s motion to dismiss the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness.ECF 259-xxIANAL, so I’m not sure of the correct legal description of that sort of statement, but in engineering we would refer to it as a lie.

Brett Kimberlin will never say or write those words outside of a courtroom or a legal filing where he enjoys a high level of immunity. He knows what would happen if he were to repeat them in any other venue.

* * * * *

For the record, while I don’t agree with every ruling Judges Grimm and Hazel made in Kimberlin’s federal suits he filed against me, I believe they treated me and my codefendants fairly.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

One of the reasons that Brett Kimberlin has maintained a perfect batting average of 0.000 in his LOLsuits is that he often submits evidence that refutes his own case. The TKPOTD for seven years ago today provided an example.

* * * * *

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has argued that he has a property interest in his job with Justice Through Music Project. One of his claims in his Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness is that the some of the other defendants and I have tried to get him fired, or ruin JTMP’s fund raising or mopery with intent to lurk or something nefarious. This is from his opposition to my motion to dismiss his first amended complaint.ECF 29-36Of course, his allegation is utter rubbish with no basis in fact or the law. Here’s how I replied.ECF 56-p12ECF 56-n5The Gentle Reader should remember that Brett Kimberlin brags about filing “over a hundred” lawsuits. He never talks about how many he’s won.

Yesterday’s TKPOTD was from seven years ago and dealt with Brett Kimberlin’s continuing inability to properly frame a cause of action for his LOLsuits. Today’s TKPOTD also reaches back seven years. It deals with one of the reasons why Kimberlin should have known he had to plead with particularity by the time he got the his later cases.

* * * * *

In yesterday’s TKPOD I quoted The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s inadvertent admission that he has no case in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness.ECF 249-p12This is not the first time TDPK has run aground on the shoals of particularity. During the first day of the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit trial, Judge Johnson explained the requirement to him.BKvAWday1p44_45 The Gentle Reader may remember that TDPK lost that trial via a directed verdict in favor of the defendants because he could not produce a “scintilla” of evidence to support his case.

The Walker, et al. case was a walk in the park compared to what will be coming Kimberlin’s way if the RICO Madness survives the motions to dismiss. There will be discovery, and it will be more interestingly focused. There will be depositions. There will likely be counterclaims. Parties may be added as counterclaim defendants.

Of course, TDPK could come to his senses and dismiss the suit. There is still time. The ram has not yet touched the wall.

Pigheaded? Stupid? Or Both?

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

My podcasting partner and former codefendant Stacy McCain refers to Brett Kimberlin as The World’s Worst Pro-Se Litigant™. Stacy may be correct, although Kimberlin has some stiff completion from Bill Schmalfeldt.

The TKPOTD for seven years ago today dealt with a mind-boggling stupid example of Kimberlin submitting a court filing in one this LOLsuits that essentially admitted he had no case.

* * * * * * * * * *

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has included an admission that he has no case in his opposition to Lee Stranahan’s motion to dismiss the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness.ECF 249-p12Unfortunately for TDPK, the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and applicable Supreme Court decisions require that his case be pleaded with particularity. He needs to say that Defendant A took action B on date C and caused damage D. Furthermore, since TDPK is alleging fraud, Rule 9 applies; it states “a party must state with particularity the circumstances constituting fraud …”

Bell Atlantic Corp. v. Twombly, 550 U.S. 544 (2007), was a decision of the Supreme Court of the United States involving civil procedure. It heightened the pleading requirement for Federal civil cases, requiring that plaintiffs include enough facts in their complaint to make it plausible—not merely possible or conceivable—that they will be able to prove facts to support their claims. In Ashcroft v. Iqbal, 556 U.S. 662 (2009) the Court clarified and tightened the pleading standard set forth in Twombly. “Threadbare” recitations of the element of a tort with no connection to what happened in the real world are not acceptable. A well-pleaded allegation says who did what to whom, when it occurred, and what the resulting damage was. With particularity.

* * * * *

popcorn4bkYou know, TDPK’s opposition to Lee’s motion amounts to a surreply to my motion, and the Local Rules don’t allow for surreplies without leave from the Court. I could try to have it thrown out on that basis. Or I could let it stand with its admission that Kimberlin has no case.

Decisions. Decisions.

* * * * * * * * * *

Of course, the RICO Madness LOLsuit was dismissed on all but one count against only one of the 20+ defendants for failure to state a claim upon which relief could be granted—i.e., Kimberlin didn’t tell the court exactly who did what to him, when the did it, and how he was damaged. The remain count ended with summary judgment for that defendant.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

One of the silliest claim that Brett Kimberlin made in any of his LOLsuits was that he had been a victim of discrimination and entitled to relief under the KKK Act. The TKPOTD for seven years ago today took a look at that claim he made in the RICO Madness LOLsuit.

* * * * *

In his opposition to Lee Stranahan’s motion to dismiss the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness, The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin tries to keep his Ku Klux Klan Act (42 U.S.C. § 1985) claim alive.ECF 249-17

Actually, invidious discrimination is one of the element of a § 1985 offense. Here’s what the Supreme Court had to say:

The language requiring intent to deprive of equal protection, or equal privileges and immunities, means that there must be some racial, or perhaps otherwise class-based, invidiously discriminatory animus behind the conspirators’ action.

Griffin v. Breckenridge, 403 U.S. 88, 102 (1971). There’s nothing in TDPK’s second amended complaint that alleges that any defendant discriminated against him because of his race. (As Stacy McCain noted while Kimberlin had him on the witness stand in the state lawsuit, “You’re white, by the way.”) The closest he’s ever come making a class-based claim was when he tried to sell the idea that he was being discriminated against because of his criminal record, but that isn’t in the second amended complaint. Even if it were, felons are not a protected class.

popcorn4bkI expect to see some pretty wild stuff thrown out by TDPK as the we get closer to the end to the RICO Madness. Monday should bring some interesting things to PACER.

Stay tuned.

It has been interesting to watch how Team Kimberlin has had to change the lies they’ve told as their various narratives have spun out of control. This post from eight years ago today to note of A Change in Attitude from Bill Schmalfeldt.

* * * * *

Just a few days ago, Bill Schmalfeldt was in full concern troll mode because the defendants in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. lawsuit and Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness were wasting time dealing with the Cabin Boy rather than focusing on the real danger facing us. Now, he’s whining because so many of those defendants have filed timely responses to The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s lawsuits, causing TDPK to have to answer those filings on a schedule that he set in place back in October.

As I’ve noted before, the expression “hoist on his own petard” initially referred to a sapper being blown up by his own explosive charge, and it seems to fit this situation quite nicely.

The whole lawfare scheme did kinda blew up in Kimberlin’s face.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

The main purpose of the TKPOTD that ran seven years ago today was to point out how poorly constructed Brett Kimberlin’s allegations of defamation were in his RICO Madness LOLsuit. It also took a look at the kind of “social causes” he was supporting with his alleged music.

* * * * *

Here’s an interesting claim from one of Exhibit 7 of The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s omnibus opposition to the motions to dismiss his Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness. ECF 231 EX7-9The SAC (that’s the second amended complaint) alleges that the mythical RICO enterprise began picking on Brett in August, 2010, although it doesn’t mention any specific acts occurring until October. So what sort of “social causes” was The Dread Performer Kimberlin “highlighting” before August, 2010? Well, in March of that year he was promoting teenage love with werewolves.Op-Crit Tweets

As for TDPK’s claim that he was unable to produce songs and videos after August, 2010, Freakin Frackin was posted to YouTube on 12 January, 2011; Occupy Music Video: Anonymous was posted to YouTube on 17 June, 2011; Coal Miner’s Family was posted to YoutTube on 5 December, 2012; and that’s not a complete list of TDPK’s work published online since 2010.

The most amazing things about Brett’s lying is how clumsy he is with it. You’d think that after all those years of practice, … oh, never mind.

Brett Kimberlin sued me and various groups of codefendants in four lawsuits. I had over 40 codefendants across all the suits and as many as 23 at one point in the Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club, et al (I) RICO Madness LOLsuit. When several of our codefendants settled the case with Kimberlin, Patrick Frey expressed his disagreement and disappointment on his blog and on Twitter. Kimberlin sent a letter to the judge asking for permission to file a motion against Frey. Seven years ago today, I posted this In Re RICO Madness.

* * * * *

I have not been served a copy of this letter, and it has not been posted to the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness case docket on PACER. (H/T @adamsteinbaugh) It’s a marvelous example of Brett Kimberlin’s gross misunderstanding of both the Case Management Order (on a point he has already been corrected by the judge) and the First Amendment. The idiocy it demonstrates is breathtaking.

BTW, I concur with Patterico’s opinion.

* * * * *

It took another two-and-a-half years before Patterico finally won the last count in the case on summary judgement and another three or four months before that win was sustained on appeal. Although I had been dismissed from the case in 2015, I got roped back in again during the discovery phase and was involved all the way to the end in late 2017.

It was a pain in the neck (actually a couple of feet lower), but worth it. I’d rather stand up to a bully than cower. And I’m proud of those who stood beside me.

The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin was buried with legal paperwork during the holidays that year because of timing set by when he filed his LOLsuits.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

During the protracted series of litigation with Brett Kimberlin, it was usually safe to assume that he would make some sort of mistake or tell some sort of stupid lie in any given court filing. The TKPOTD for seven years ago today was about one such filing and what Kimberlin was really try to accomplish.

* * * * *

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.

I’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.
