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.

If You Are Hearing that my Federal Suit Has Been Dismissed...

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 Kimberlin has been harassing me since last December, 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.  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.

Well, last night I found out that the Brett Kimberlin media organ known as Breitbart Unmasked put up a post stating that the federal suit had been dismissed.  As with anything coming from Team Kimberlin, this is dishonest.

What happened is this.  The federal suit was originally filed as a parallel action while we were trying to get the flagrantly unconstitutional ruling by Judge Vaughey stayed in state court.  So the federal suit included a motion for a preliminary injunction preventing enforcement of the peace order.

When my Maryland circuit court motion for a stay was granted by (state) Judge Rupp, (federal) Judge Mott found out very quickly by some means and he or one of his clerks called one of my attorneys asking whether the motion for an injunction should be withdrawn.  My attorneys agreed that the motion for an injunction should be withdrawn, as indeed it should have been.

And then someone in the judge’s chambers made a mistake.  I was told the judge did this, but I suspect the judge is magnanimously taking responsibility for one of his staff.  But one way or the other they accidentally ordered the entire case dismissed, instead of just the motion for preliminary injunction.

Judges, and their staffs, are humans and not computers.  They make human mistakes, but they also know they make human mistakes.  They are not automatons who will follow this error blindly.  Instead the case will be reopened as a matter of course.  In short, it is a non-event that has absolutely no bearing on the outcome of the case.

Now, there are two reasonable questions to ask.

First, why didn’t I mention it?  Because it is a non-event.  Little goofs like this are actually quite common in law.  For instance, I don’t believe I have ever previously mentioned that in the first peace order case Kimberlin filed against me, they spelled his name as “Kimberline.”  I mentioned it to a few reporters when helping them verify the story, but I don’t believe I mentioned it on this blog.  Why?  Because it was a little flub of no consequence.  As it is, I might be vulnerable to the criticism that I focus on too many details that are of dubious relevance.

Second, related to the first, then why am I mentioning it now?  Well, because apparently Kimberlin’s little disinformation campaign on the subject is getting out, in a silly attempt to harm funding.  And that is their goal.  As I said before:

Kimberlin’s entire strategy is built around trying to outlast his opponents.  Recall what he said to Patrick Frey when threatening him with a frivolous defamation suit:

I have filed over a hundred lawsuits and another one will be no sweat for me. On the other hand, it will cost you a lot of time and money[.]

(Emphasis added.)  Kimberlin’s goal is to exhaust us, financially and in terms of time.  So by giving to the Blogger’s Defense Team you are helping to ensure that his strategy of delay and obstruction will fail.  Show him that however long he drags this out, we will see this through.

Another related piece of disinformation is that Ali Akbar is raising funds for this case.  He is not.  I don’t say this to “throw Ali under the bus” or anything like that, but it is simply a fact.  Ali is not affiliated with the Blogger’s Defense Team at all.  Ali’s National Blogger’s Club runs a generalized relief fund that has generously provided support to myself and presumably others.  The Blogger’s Defense Team is a legal defense fund, with money going to the costs of litigation, much like the NAACP’s famous “Ink fund” which was used to bring down racial segregation.

Dan Backer got this started because he is concerned that people will look to Kimberlin’s tactics as a blueprint on how to fight these political wars—trying to destroy the lives and careers of those who disagree with him, and even to criminalize that disagreement.  It’s fascism, pure and simple, and Backer doesn’t want this to be the model for how discourse occurs in American politics.  If you agree that these tactics should be out of bounds, whatever your political affiliation, please help us out.

Anyway, tomorrow starting at 10 in the morning will be the hearing on the motion for default against Rauhauser and Brynaert in the Virginia case.  I expect that Brett Kimberlin will show up.  I can only speculate if his co-conspirators will.  If you wish to come, I will welcome you.


My wife and I have lost our jobs due to the harassment of convicted terrorist 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 Blogger’s Defense Team button 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. The NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund, Inc. is commonly known as the "Inc. Fund", not the "Ink Fund," pronounced the same way.

    I mention this not to be pedantic for its own sake, but just to avoid confusion.
