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.

The End of Adjudicated Pedophile Brett Kimberlin’s Human Shield Strategy

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 he is suing Hoge, McCain, Akbar, DB Capital Strategies, Michelle Malkin, Glenn Beck, Patrick “Patterico” Frey, Mandy Nagy, Lee Stranahan, Erick Erickson,, the Blaze, Mercury Radio Arts, Red State, the National Bloggers Club, and  others alleging that we are all in organized crime for reporting factually about the spate of SWATtings committed against myself, Frey and Erickson.  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.

So as I previewed yesterday, we had another peace order hearing today.  Ostensibly it was Brett Kimberlin’s daughter, whom I shall only identify as K., seeking the peace order, but we all know this was part of her father’s plan to abuse the courts in an attempt to silence his critics.  He was claiming that John Hoge had harassed her.

As you might recall, Brett tried this before in the District Court, only to lose in front of Judge Williams, there.  So this was the de novo appeal of that loss, which means it was basically like a whole new trial.

Before Brett got two words out of his mouth, John’s pro bono lawyer, Patrick Ostronic brought up two preliminary motions.  First, he asked the court to hold that Brett could not present the case.  Of course Brett has a general right to represent himself, but what he did in the District Court was he represented his daughter, making opening statements, examining witnesses, and so on.  Judge Creighton quickly ruled in John’s favor on that one.

And next was the inevitable challenge to Brett testifying.  Frankly, we have been through this dance several times, you know by now what he is going to say, pretty much, and you knew what we were.  Brett told several more lies while trying to convince the judge, ironically, that he can be trusted to tell the truth.  But the judge ruled against him.

Which means that Brett was essentially rendered a spectator.  He literally had no right to speak in the court at all throughout the rest of the hearing.  He tried at least once, only to be “shushed” more or less.  Weirdly, though, he continued to sit at the plaintiff’s table, and even stranger, his daughter didn’t, showing us again what the case was really about.

By the way, it is also worth taking a moment to discuss how Brett looked today.  You can tell when he is a little frazzled and this time, he came in a suit where the collar was unbuttoned, there was no tie, and garish white socks contrasting with his dark slacks and dark shoes.  He usually looks better than this for trial, and I suspect that it was the result of stress.  He has a busy schedule, right now.

So we get to the case itself.  K. Kimberlin was not going to fully “play lawyer” like her father, so basically the judge said, “who should come testify first?”  No opening statement, just leaping right into the testimony.

The first up was a bit of a surprise, Brett Kimberlin’s wife, who I will identify as T. Kimberlin.  This was supposed to be the big scary surprise that Team Kimberlin had spoken about but basically all she could testify to was that her daughter was upset.  Kind of a fizzle, honestly.

Next up was K. Kimberlin.  You know, it is hard to write about it, because in terms of actual concrete... anything.  But bluntly, she was somehow persuasive to the judge.  So she would say that John supposedly wrote about everywhere she went, everything she does—which you, dear reader, know isn’t true—but presented literally no evidence of that.  She accused John of trying to follow her on twitter, but later admitted she got John and me confused (as you will recall, dear reader, I discussed it when talking about the last hearing, where I testified I did so by picking up the phone wrong, and immediately unfollowed, but not before Brett decided to make just about a federal case out of it).  Emotionally, at one point she was crying, and at another point she was nearly shouting about it.  She also remarked that I would  probably write about this later; the judge pointed out that this was a public trial.  But ultimately for all the shouting, there wasn’t much evidence.  What we had was that same post that someone else wrote, where John in his nerdy way corrected someone’s misstatement about her age.  That is it.

At the close of their side, Ostronic asked for a ruling that they hadn’t even met their initial burden.  The judge denied it, I think clearly wanting to hear what John had to say for himself.  So John testified and the testimony was sparse.  “Did you ever call her?” “No.” “Did you ever email her?” “No.”  Stuff like that.  One interesting thing that came out was they attempted to claim, again, that John wrote tweets that were actually written by Lee Stranahan and Patrick Frey, and John successfully rebutted this.  It really comes down to the fact that John just isn’t interested in the girl, and to the extent that he talks about her at all, it’s usually a line like, “Brett’s daughters were in attendance.”  That’s all.

So I thought we were doing great when the judge says she needs a few minutes to deliberate.  There was literally almost nothing there.  But then that is when she gave John a severe tongue lashing on the bench, indicating that she believed that we were somehow targeting K., and even saying that if this keeps going on someone will end up in jail.  And then she left.  You might have seen me tweet out about praying for John.  After that, I was worried, and pretty disturbed that the judge couldn’t discern that there was no evidence to support that conclusion.

And so we waited... and waited.  It was around forty five long minutes of this, maybe as much as an hour, and I remember going over to John and saying, “every minute we wait, is a good sign.”  I explained to him what I think was happening and I continue to believe I was right.  There is no denying that the judge was emotionally in the Kimberlins’ corner at that point.  I think she wanted to grant the petition.  But, at the same time, as she read over the law, she gradually realized what harassment was and what it wasn’t.  John had made the point that he doesn’t talk to the Kimberlin’s.  I won’t even say he talks about them.  He just talks about one Kimberlin, and it is his legal right to do so.

So when she came back she said basically there wasn’t enough evidence to support a peace order.  She focused heavily in on the concept that it has to be a course of conduct, and she only had one relevant instance in front of her.  She even went back over her remarks about jail and suddenly was hedging, talking about “if there is sufficient evidence” and the like.  She realized the law just wasn’t there: John was nowhere near harassment of anyone, especially not K. Kimberlin.

So this was as successful as Brett could get with his new human shield strategy.  It is very clear that he keeps hoping that if he could just get his daughter on the stand and get her to cry on cue, that the judges would give them anything he asked for.  And it didn’t work.  Judge Creighton pretty clearly wanted to silence John, but realized the law was on John’s side.  If it isn’t going to work with her, it just isn’t going to work.

Anyway, as they were leaving Brett says—pretending to speak to his family, but clearly saying loud enough for me to hear—something like, “I guess we go file criminal charges.”

I snorted a chuckling, “oh God.”

To which his muscle said, “yeah, oh God,” as though I am supposed to be intimidated.

I replied, “you never learn.”  If he was hoping to scare me or John, I made it clear it was not going to have the intended effect.

Anyway, it was a closer case than it should have been—seriously, they were nowhere near meeting the statute, but John still won and Brett’s human shield strategy was shut down.

But we will take in our victory with dignity, and self-respect and…

Ah, screw it!

Please note, Zelma Davis didn’t actually sing any of that.


My wife and I have lost our jobs due to the harassment of convicted terrorist (and adjudicated pedophile) Brett Kimberlin, including an attempt to get us killed and to frame me for a crime carrying a sentence of up to ten years.  I know that claim sounds fantastic, but if you read starting here, you will see absolute proof of these claims using documentary and video evidence.  If you would like to help in the fight to hold Mr. Kimberlin accountable, please hit the donation link on the right.  And thank you.

I have accused some people, particularly Brett Kimberlin, of reprehensible conduct.  In some cases, the conduct is even criminal.  In all cases, the only justice I want is through the appropriate legal process—such as the criminal justice system.  I do not want to see vigilante violence against any person or any threat of such violence.  This kind of conduct is not only morally wrong, but it is counter-productive.

In the particular case of Brett Kimberlin, I do not want you to even contact him.  Do not call him.  Do not write him a letter.  Do not write him an email.  Do not text-message him.  Do not engage in any kind of directed communication.  I say this in part because under Maryland law, that can quickly become harassment and I don’t want that to happen to him.

And for that matter, don’t go on his property.  Don’t sneak around and try to photograph him.  Frankly try not to even be within his field of vision.  Your behavior could quickly cross the line into harassment in that way too (not to mention trespass and other concerns).

And do not contact his organizations, either.  And most of all, leave his family alone.

The only exception to all that is that if you are reporting on this, there is of course nothing wrong with contacting him for things like his official response to any stories you might report.  And even then if he tells you to stop contacting him, obey that request.  That this is a key element in making out a harassment claim under Maryland law—that a person asks you to stop and you refuse.

And let me say something else.  In my heart of hearts, I don’t believe that any person supporting me has done any of the above.  But if any of you have, stop it, and if you haven’t don’t start.


  1. May you and your family and friends be Blessed with Patience and Strength. And a smile in your heart to chase them naughty blues away ...

  2. Tried to post a comment but the editor wigged out as I was revising. I
    Clicked preview and it seemed to collect the comment to be published. It will look half written if that's what happened.

  3. Good job. Thanks for the detail!

  4. Good outcome, prayers answered. I am redoubling prayer output for an end to Brett Kimberlins lawfare.

  5. Judges in Maryland really worry me. That the judge came close to wavering on this case is insane.

  6. I'm a bit confused now on who should be liable for what. It appears that the Plaintiff was upset by what she was TOLD was happening on the Internet, not what she actually experienced since the Defendant basically said "nope, didn't do that" to 99% of the questions posed. Wouldn't that make her informant liable for the emotional distress??
