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.

Bill Schmalfeldt Puts My Account in the YouTube Gulag

So as I have told you, Bill Schmalfeldt has been pressing bogus copyright claims against me and Lee Stranahan.  How bogus are they?  Schmalfeldt has said specifically on his radio show that Lee Stranahan’s use of audio was “fair use” but is threatening to sue him for copyright infringement anyway.  And for that matter, he has thanked me on air for his coverage, meaning he can’t claim any damages based on copyright infringement.  He’s a real genius, that one.

So I find out today that despite my challenges to each of his claims, YouTube has suspended me.  Apparently it only takes two complaints, however bogus, to get a YouTube account pulled, most likely operating by some algorithm.  I am working to get this decision reversed, but in the meantime, I can post it on my blog and Blogger is very good at being resistant to bogus complaints.  I should know, it handled the Everyone Draw Mohammed Day protest far better than Facebook (which is why I don’t use Facebook).

So what videos has he temporarily successfully suppressed?

Well, first up we have one I called “Bill Schmalfeldt and the Law of Copyright.”  It features commentary on how Bill Schmalfeldt himself regularly violates the copyright of others, particularly the owners of the Simpsons, in the introduction to his radio show.

Next up we have a clip where he claims not to know Kimberlin and then lies.

Do you catch the contradiction?  He claims to have no contact with Kimberlin, but somehow he magically knows that Kimberlin is genuinely fighting for good causes.  The two cannot both be true, and more likely than not, both are lies.

Next we have Bill Schmalfeldt  complaining about working on President’s day, which proves that this is a job for him, and he is not his own boss:

Next we have his threats against myself, Lee Stranahan, John Hoge (who he calls “Hoggy”) and Deputy District Attorney Patrick Frey:

And here is where he doubles down on that threat

Here is where he engages in ethnic stereotyping, for some reason.

And here is where he interviews Neal Rauhauser, an associate of Brett Kimberlin.  Note that he twice refers to him as his buddy:

That makes him buddies with a Brett Kimberlin associate.  And since Brooks Bayne has openly worked with Schmalfeldt in the past, this proves Bayne is connected to Kimberlin as well.  They really don't want you to know that.  And he really doesn’t want you to hear this one where he jokes about Lee Stranahan’s underage children being sold into prostitution:

Or where he makes crude jokes about Lee Stranahan’s wife:

Or when he gets menacing:

Or when he declares he doesn’t make threats, he makes promises:

And there is a lot of collateral damage to his shutting down the youtube.  For instance you can no longer see the raw footage from the security cameras that shows that Kimberlin’s claim that I beat him up are false:

Or the presentation I created showing the differences between what the video you just saw showed, and what Kimberlin said about it:

So that is what Schmalfeldt has successfully gulaged, for now.  Hopefully we can get this decision overturned soon.

Just remember that when he claims to believe in free speech.  He doesn’t.  He doesn’t want us to quote his actual words to you.  But as they said on Firefly: “You can’t stop the signal, Mal.”



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. Aaron,

    Since Bill Schmalfeldt has questioned the death of Lee Stranahans baby girl in the most disgusting ways, is it not fair that we question his mothers "fight for life" in the same way? I know you wouldn't (nor would I) but I guarantee you that ole B.S. would squeal and cry "How dare You".
