The Brett Kimberlin Saga:

Follow this link to my BLOCKBUSTER STORY of how Brett Kimberlin, a convicted terrorist and perjurer, attempted to frame me for a crime, and then got me arrested for blogging when I exposed that misconduct to the world. That sounds like an incredible claim, but I provide primary documents and video evidence proving that he did this. And if you are moved by this story to provide a little help to myself and other victims of Mr. Kimberlin’s intimidation, such as Robert Stacy McCain, you can donate at the PayPal buttons on the right. And I thank everyone who has done so, and will do so.

Adjudicated Pedophile Brett Kimberlin Impotently Accuses me of Unauthorized Practice of Law

Or “Brett Kimberlin Goes the Full Schmalfeldt”

Brett's fail is much funnier in 3D!
This is the latest post in what I half-jokingly call The Kimberlin Saga®.  If you are new to the story, that’s okay! Not everyone reads my blog.  The short version is that convicted terrorist Brett Kimberlin has been harassing me for over three years, his worst conduct being when he attempted to frame me for a crime.  I recognize that this might sound like an incredible claim, but I provide video and documentary evidence of that fact; in other words, you don’t have to believe my word.  You only have to believe your eyes.  Indeed, he sued me for saying this and lost on the issue of truth.  And more recently when his wife came to us claiming that this convicted terrorist had threatened her harm, we tried to help her leave him, and for that, he sued myself, John Hoge, Robert Stacy McCain and Ali Akbar for helping his wife and for calling him a pedophile.  He lost on the issue of truth.  He is also suing Hoge, Akbar, Dan Backer, DB Capital Strategies, Patrick “Patterico” Frey, Mandy Nagy (who is significantly incapacitated by a stroke), Lee Stranahan, the National Bloggers Club, and  others alleging that we are all in conspiracy to defame him because we reported factually about the spate of SWATtings committed against myself, Frey, Erickson and others.  So, if you are new to the story, go to this page and you’ll be able to catch up on what has been happening.

Now in the last two posts, I discussed Kimberlin v. Walker, et al., and Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club (II), and I have discussed other cases in the past.  One case I don’t remember discussing at all, is Kimberlin v. Hunton and Williams, et al.  That’s largely because I am not a party in it, and not generally involved in that case, but my friend John Hoge is and he has been discussing it regularly at his blog, here.  He calls it “RICO II,” sometimes humorously adding “Electric Boogalo” to riff off the movie “Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogalo” which is more famous for its title than anything else.

How to explain this suit?  Well, the short version is this.  Longtime readers know that Brett Kimberlin believes that there was a vast conspiracy against him called in shorthand “Team Themis” that involves the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the FBI and I think the CIA.  No word on whether the Templars are involved, too.  Anyway, this suit is about that pile of crazy...  and then he threw in some random unrelated state-law tort claims against John Hoge and Bill Nickless.  The insertion of Mr. Hoge seems largely to be related to his anger at John for having won a peace order hearing the week before Brett filed this.  He filed this dumb lawsuit literally the same week that Judge Hazel dismissed all RICO claims (and most other claims in Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club (I).  You can read that opinion here.  And guess who got the new RICO case?  Judge Hazel.  It’s like legal whack-a-mole.

Adjudicated Pedophile Brett Kimberlin Impotently Pleads for a Stay of Execution

Now, dear reader, the last two posts on Brett Kimberlin (here and here) have been instances where a lot of catch up was needed.  I had to go back months in time to tell you what is happening.  This time, we can build off of events in, well, those last two posts.

For those just catching up, I am going to do a recap, sort of a “last time on Lost,” moment.

To briefly recap, Brett first had a case against me that we call Kimberlin v. Walker, et al.  Basically it revolved primarily (but not exclusively) around allegations that Brett is a pedophile and issues like criminal charges that arose from that.  We went to trial on defamation and false light and won that case for the most substantive reason possible: truth.  Which means that from now on, Brett is not allowed to claim anyone has defamed him or placed him in a false light by calling him a pedophile at least as of August 12, 2014, even one that has practiced it in the past.  In my last post I discussed how he attempted to appeal his loss in that case and lost that appeal.

Appellate Court Affirms Brett Kimberlin’s Status as an Adjudicated Pedophile

Or: “Catching Up with Kimberlin v. Walker, et. al.

With a headline like that, you know you
will need popcorn!
This is the latest post in what I half-jokingly call The Kimberlin Saga®.  If you are new to the story, that’s okay! Not everyone reads my blog.  The short version is that convicted terrorist Brett Kimberlin has been harassing me for over three years, his worst conduct being when he attempted to frame me for a crime.  I recognize that this might sound like an incredible claim, but I provide video and documentary evidence of that fact; in other words, you don’t have to believe my word.  You only have to believe your eyes.  Indeed, he sued me for saying this and lost on the issue of truth.  And more recently when his wife came to us claiming that this convicted terrorist had threatened her harm, we tried to help her leave him, and for that, he sued myself, John Hoge, Robert Stacy McCain and Ali Akbar for helping his wife and for calling him a pedophile.  He lost on the issue of truth.  He is also suing Hoge, Akbar, Dan Backer, DB Capital Strategies, Patrick “Patterico” Frey, Mandy Nagy (who is significantly incapacitated by a stroke), Lee Stranahan, the National Bloggers Club, and  others alleging that we are all in conspiracy to defame him because we reported factually about the spate of SWATtings committed against myself, Frey, Erickson and others.  So, if you are new to the story, go to this page and you’ll be able to catch up on what has been happening.

The headline, here, is that Brett Kimberlin has lost his latest appeal of his lawsuit involving charges that he is a pedophile.  This is the same case that David Weigel wrote about in the Daily Beast.  And you can see where I wrote in the immediate aftermath of that victory in the lower court here and here.  To explain how we get there, however, is going to take a while.  Bluntly, I don’t write posts trying to chase the lastest breaking news.  I try to give you thoughtful analysis you can read for a while and this post is no exception.  If you read every embedded document, you are looking at around 300 pages of text by my best estimate.  So there’s nothing wrong with saving it for when you really have a long time to read.

Let’s start with a quick background about the case.  The short version is that in 2013, Brett Kimberlin’s wife, Tetyana Kimberlin, separated from her husband and came to myself and John Hoge for help.  She told us that Brett Kimberlin had seduced her when she was fourteen years old in Ukraine, that he brought her to America when she was fifteen and carried on a sexual relationship in violation of Maryland law (because she was below the relevant age of consent), and various other horribles.  This lined up with other evidence that suggested Brett was a pedophile.  She ended up filing charges based on that crime, but at some point reversed course and stopped cooperating as a witness, causing those charges to be dropped.  Brett sue me and several of my friends (John Hoge, Robert Stacy McCain, Ali Akbar and two persons who allegedly wrote as KimberlnUnmasked) for alleged stalking and harassment (which is not a cause of action in Maryland), malicious prosecution, malicious use of process, intentional infliction of emotional distress, defamation and false light.  First, we won a grant of summary judgment in our favor on all but the defamation and false light claims.  Then we won a judgment (what is called a directed verdict in most states) at trial on the issue of false light or defamation, because Brett literally had no evidence that anything we said was false.  In other words, he thought he could get up there, prove we said bad things about him and then rest his case, or he wanted the court to accept that argument.  He has now lost that argument, twice.

Moral Absolutism and Revolution: My Martin Luther King Day Tribute

This picture of Dr. King, in minister's robes and standing before the American flag, is oddly appropriate given
the subject of this post
As regular readers know, every year I try to write a post celebrating Dr. King’s birthday.  As I have said, if Dr. King had not been born, or if he didn’t do what he did, I probably would not have gone to college, let alone graduated from Yale Law School,* I would not be a lawyer, and I very likely would not have been legally allowed to marry my wife.  So a debt of gratitude is appropriately owed.

This year I will talk about a passage that you might not know of from Dr. King’s Letter from a Birmingham Jail.

I remember when I first read the letter—or thought I read it—in middle school in North Carolina, I was less than impressed.  I remember reading this passage in particular:

Convicted Terrorist Brett Kimberlin Loses His Latest Suit Against Me

Catching up with Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club (II))

This is the latest post in what I half-jokingly call The Kimberlin Saga®.  If you are new to the story, that’s okay! Not everyone reads my blog.  The short version is that convicted terrorist Brett Kimberlin has been harassing me for over three years, his worst conduct being when he attempted to frame me for a crime.  I recognize that this might sound like an incredible claim, but I provide video and documentary evidence of that fact; in other words, you don’t have to believe my word.  You only have to believe your eyes.  Indeed, he sued me for saying this and lost on the issue of truth.  And more recently when his wife came to us claiming that this convicted terrorist had threatened her harm, we tried to help her leave him, and for that, he sued myself, John Hoge, Robert Stacy McCain and Ali Akbar for helping his wife and for calling him a pedophile.  He lost on the issue of truth.  He is also suing Hoge, Akbar, Dan Backer, DB Capital Strategies, Patrick “Patterico” Frey, Mandy Nagy (who is significantly incapacitated by a stroke), Lee Stranahan, the National Bloggers Club, and  others alleging that we are all in conspiracy to defame him because we reported factually about the spate of SWATtings committed against myself, Frey, Erickson and others.  So, if you are new to the story, go to this page and you’ll be able to catch up on what has been happening.

In my last post, I promised to start updating you, dear reader, on what is going on in the many legal cases involving Brett Kimberlin.  I am not quite ready to do that, completely, but I can give you this week’s big news: I won Brett Kimberlin’s latest suit against me.  As of today, I am no longer being sued by Brett Kimberlin (although I am still waiting on an outcome from the Court of Special Appeals—something I will explain to you another time).

So that’s the lede: I won completely, in that case.  And the purpose of today’s post is to talk about what got me there.

As a little background, this case was a continuation of a case filed previously against me and many others in Federal Court, which I refer to as Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club.  Basically I and several other people have been SWATted.  You can read my account of that event, here.  Anyway, having been SWATed, I was sued as a result.

Yes, you are reading it right.  I was sued for being SWATted.  Basically Brett Kimberlin claimed that we implied or said he was involved in various SWATtings and he was not, and therefore sued us on a number of theories.  Of course the answer is that a true and accurate statement of the facts makes you suspicious as hell about whether Kimberlin was involved, especially in my SWATting.  In other words, reality implies Brett might be responsible.  But we all know that reality is anti-Brett-Kimberlin conspiracy, so...

The Stupid Season

It’s often said that there are silly seasons in politics.  Well, right now we seem to be in a stupid season.

Let’s start with the Democrats and their latest stupid gun control proposal.

Now, stupidity and gun control go together like peanut butter and chocolate.  For instance, the same people who want open borders very often want strict gun control, as though the same people moving people and drugs across our borders freely would hesitate to move guns if there was sufficient profit in it.  Indeed, often we see single-city gun control.  Liberals in Washington, D.C., for instance, apparently think that no one will to Northern Virginia, buy a gun, and drive back.  If you are talking gun control without talking border control you are just a fool—or a cynic hoping to manipulate fools.

According to Wikipedia, Erick Erickson has an Insatiable Need to Eat Asian Children (Update: Wikipedia deletes!)

Or “Why You Shouldn’t Trust Wikipedia Part 14,242”

Update: The Wikipedia page has deleted the whole line.  This might be in response to a Gawker story (which I won’t link to) where they allegedly called his mom and asked her if it was true and she denied it.  That led to people proclaiming that Erickson was lying, instead of that it being a disputed account.   Because that is the most obvious explanation, instead of the mother being embarrassed and not wanting to admit it.

So, on Pearl Harbor day this year, Erick Erickson tweeted this out:


This in turn led to a deep discussion about getting past the racism of some of our parents and commending him for being honest about his upbringing and...

Just kidding, everyone attacked him for his candor and, even though he didn’t endorse what his parents did, they assumed he agreed with them.

And it even found its way into his Wikipedia page.  See if you see what is wrong with this image:

(I have the whole thing screencapped in case it changes.)
Yep, according to Wikipedia, “Erickson's parents refused to let his family eat Asian children on December 7th.”  Apparently Mr. Erickson had an insatiable desire to each Asian children, at least when he was growing up, and his parents could only prevent him from eating said children on one day a year, or something.

Nor is this the only thing Wikipedia has ever gotten laughably wrong when it comes to conservatives.  For instance, during the Bush administration, Wikipedia said Condi Rice was trained to be a “concert penis” and littered Bush’s entry with the word “jerk.”

I think the big picture is this.  The words on your screen do not appear by magic.  There is a human hand behind each word, even these you are reading right now.  They can be driven by an honest desire to get at the truth, or they can be driven by unconscious bias or even a conscious agenda.  About three and a half years ago when I first embarked on my quest to hold Brett Kimberlin accountable for the crimes he committed against me, I recognized that I need to establish my credibility.  So I provided my source documents and even video evidence to support my story.  As I said back then: “In other words, you won’t have to believe my word on this.  You will only have to believe your eyes.

Always be skeptical about what any person is telling you, even from a source as authoritative as a textbook.  Make sure that there are fact checkers who are not asleep at the switch or so filled with bias themselves that they can’t recognize an error when it appears.  In computer programing they have an acronym: GIGO.  It stands for Garbage In, Garbage Out, meaning that if your inputted information is bad, your output will suffer.  In our democracy we have to base our decisions on the information we have, and if the information we have is garbage, our decisions will be garbage.  So you need to screen your sources of information for trustworthiness.

As for Wikipedia, it’s just not trustworthy--at least not on politically charged topics.

---------------------------------------

Sidebar: as a matter of full disclosure, Mr. Erickson was a co-defendant in some of the Brett-Kimberlin-related litigation and even apparently settled.  If you think that somehow creates a bias in me that affects this article, that seems unlikely.  At best, it means that when someone talked about it on Twitter, I was slightly more likely to notice the story because I know him a little.  But once I noticed it for any reason I doubt I would have drawn different conclusions.

Also, regular readers might wonder, “hey, Aaron! You’re blogging again!  Does this mean you will be filling us in on what has been happening in Kimberlin Saga?  Yes, I will be working on that, soon.

Convicted Terrorist Brett Kimberlin’s Unsealed Motion for a Restraining Order

Enjoy every kernel...
This is the latest post in what I half-jokingly call The Kimberlin Saga®.  If you are new to the story, that’s okay!

As promised last Thursday, dear reader, today I am giving you the mysterious document mentioned in this docket entry:

Docket Date:               07/21/2015 Docket Number: 25
Docket Description:    MOTION, PROTECTIVE ORDER
Docket Type:              Motion Filed By: Defendant Status: Open
Docket Text:               DEFENDANTS, BRETT AND TETYANA KIMBERLIN'S SEALED MOTION FOR TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER, PRELIMINARY INJUNCTION AND PROTECTION ORDER, AND ATTACHMENTS, FILED. (PLEADING REMOVED AND PLACED UNDER SEAL)

That was filed in Walker v. Kimberlin, et al., the case I filed against Brett and Tetyana Kimberlin designed to 1) enjoin both of them from abusing the civil and criminal justice system and 2) get damages from Brett for basically the last three and a half years of hell.  You can read the complaint filed here, and it might help to read it.  So without further ado, I will present the his dumb motion and then fisk its factual inaccuracies momentarily:
