Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Today’s post is a twofer. First, we’ll look at the TKPOTD from five years ago today which dealt with one of the most absurd claims in The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s Second Amended Complaint in his RICO Madness LOLsuit—the idea that there was some sort of connection between Team Themis and the defendants in the RICO Madness case. Next, we’ll look at the reaction that post elicited.

RICOMadnessHere’s some more nonsense from The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s proposed second amended complaint for his Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness.ECF 100-37Velvet Revolution US is the 501(c)(4) that TDPK cofounded with Brad Friedman. It operates a website called Indict Breitbart (No, I won’t link to it.) which, like all the VRUS sites, has a Donate button.IndictBrietbartdotorg

The domain was registered in September, 2010.

Raising money off of false narratives …

Hmmmm.

That TKPOTD resulted in some interesting comments coming in to the blog. So I published this post, In Re THEMIS.

* * * * *

THEMIS (Time History of Events and Macroscale Interactions during Substorms)  is a mission to investigate what causes auroras in the Earth’s atmosphere. The program is run by NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center and not by the agency just up the road that forgot to buy both vowels.

I have never had any connection to the program.

Hi, Neal!

UPDATE—Ooooo! Struck a nerve, have we? This comment just came in attributed to my late mother.TK2014041542ZCan you say “desperation”?

* * * * *

As with so many other things, TDPK’s futile attempt at brass knuckles reputation management via lawfare failed—in large part because of his and Team Kimberlin’s incompetence.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


It’s that time of year again when the Top Ten Lists for the year in review get published, and we’ve made it to the top of the TKPOTD’s list of the Top Ten Team Kimberlin Stories for 2015—

10. The Cabin Boy™ Sues As A Pauper
9. Breitbart Unmasked Doubles Down On Defamation
8. The Cabin Boy™ Sues in State Court
7. The Cabin Boy™ Runs Away
6. The Bogus Peace Order
5. The Bogus Criminal Charges
4. RICO Madness Dismissed (Mostly)
3. RICO Retread LOLsuit Filed

2. RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo

The timing was exquisite. On 16 March, the Monday following the Friday denial of The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s bogus peace order petition (6) against me and one day before the RICO Madness (4) claims against me were dismissed, TDPK filed another RICO LOLsuit naming me as one of the defendants.

This brilliant bit of lawfare is styled Kimberlin v. Hunton & Williams LLP, et al. at the courthouse and Kimberlin v. Team Themis, et al. here at Hogewash!.

In Re a LOLsuit

A new lawsuit has appeared on PACER styled Kimberlin v. Hunton & Williams LLP, et al. The complaint isn’t posted yet, but it appears that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has decided to sue a long list of persons and entities who he believes are associated with Team Themis. There are 21 defendants, and I am listed among the et al. along with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. PNNL is a part of the U.S. Department of Energy.

I can’t make any further comment until I’ve seen the complaint. I’ll post it as soon as I can download it from PACER.

Stay tuned.

UPDATE—Here is the complaint.

In Re RICO Madness Part Deux

I said that I would post the exhibits that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin filed with his complaint in the Kimberlin v. Team Themis, et al. RICO 2. The file is 54 Mb long, so I’ve put it up on Scribd.

I have no comment on the exhibits except to note that they don’t mention me or Hogewash! at all.

* * * * *

The lead defendant, Hunton & Williams, is a law firm with over 800 lawyers, a really great defendant for a pro se plaintiff to go after. As noted in that first post, among my other codefendants are the U. S. Chamber of Commerce and Pacific Northwest National Labs, a part of the Department of Energy.

TDPK file the suit a few days after the statute of limitations had run out on any of his claims on the deep pocket defendants. It’s rather obvious that I was added at the last minute in an attempt to claim that this blog exists as a follow on to the Team Themis “plot” against Kimberlin.

He’s definitely bitten off more than he can chew with this one.

1. Aaron Walker Strikes Back

Kimberlin is now experiencing the first wave of the pushback that will be coming his way. Aaron Walker has filed suit against Brett and Tetyana Kimberlin alleging, among other things, that they have engaged in malicious prosecution.

In the first instance, Aaron alleges that Brett Kimberlin filed a false harassment charge against him when he gave legal advice to Tetyana Kimberlin while she was estranged from her husband. In the second, Aaron alleges that Tetyana filed (on Brett’s behalf) a false charge of electronic harassment of a minor against Aaron. (Yes, similar charges were filed against me in both instances, and, yes, I’m watching the case closely.) He is seeking both money damages and injunctive relief.

This case has been a sleeper for most of this year. I haven’t been able to report much for tactical reasons. However, I expect that this case will be quite significant during 2016. Thus far, TDPK has been losing as a plaintiff. He will now have the opportunity to lose as a defendant.

Stay tuned.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The most bizarre bit of nonsense in all of The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s ranting in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness is his spinning of a fable concerning Team Themis. The beginnings of the Team Themis non-story go back to before my time as a blogger, but Stacy Mc Cain has written some about it. This piece about Barrett Brown and ‘Team Themis’ provides a reasonable summary of what probably happened in a skirmish between the U. S. Chamber of Commerce and the nascent Team Kimberlin.

Here’s the money quote.

The reference is to U.S. Chamber Watch, a wholly owned project of Brett Kimberlin’s Velvet Revolution! Of course, at that point, I’d never heard of Brett Kimberlin or Velvet Revolution, but it’s kind of weird how, over the course of several months in 2011 and 2012, these divergent threads came together. In September 2011, Neal Rauhauser e-mailed Barrett Brown’s colleague Gregg Housh to coordinate “Occupy” activism on behalf of Velvet Revolution. And in September 2012, Rauhauser as “Carlito2000″ got Barrett Brown agitated about Jennifer Emick.

So while Barrett Brown is being celebrated as a journalistic hero by the New York Times and Rolling Stone, I’m being sued by the convicted bomber Brett Kimberlin for “DEFAMATION, MALICIOUS PROSECUTION, HARASSMENT, STALKING, CONSPIRACY, INVASION OF PRIVACY AND INTENTIONAL INFLICTION OF EMOTIONAL DISTRESS” and yet — checking my e-mail inbox again — no, neither David Carr of the New York Times nor Alexander Zaitchik of Rolling Stone seems to find that story interesting.

Just a coincidence, I’m sure . . .

Sure, Stacy. Just a coincidence.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


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.
