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.

Will the Pedophile Brett Kimberlin finally have a “George Costanza” Moment?

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 for over a year, 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.

[Update: Please note that I have removed the first name of Ms. Kimberlin at her request and left only her first initial, “T.” She is, after all, a victim of sexual abuse and those kinds of reasonable requests will be honored.  While the moral right to privacy of rape victims is not absolute, it seems to be reasonably asserted here.]

Of course most people know that George Costanza is one of the main characters on the classic sitcom Seinfeld, generally believed to be a stand in for Larry David who ended up having his own show later.  George is kind of a loser who, in one of the most memorable episodes of the series, ever (which is really saying something for that show) comes to an epiphany.  If you can watch it, it is funnier to see it than for me to describe:

But if you can’t watch, let me give you the outline.  George comes to the realization that every instinct he has ever had his entire life has been wrong and then, with a little urging from Jerry, vows to literally do the opposite of whatever his instincts tell him.  And the joke is he is almost instantly successful as a result.  You see in the clip the beginning of his success.  First he orders the food that is the “opposite” of what he usually orders, and then that catches a girl’s eye.  Then when his instincts tell him he has no chance with her, he decides to walk right up to her and tell her that he is unemployed and lives with his parents... and she likes it!  If memory serves the episode goes on to show him suddenly having great success in life, because he is doing the very opposite of what his instincts were.

And it occurred to me recently that Brett Kimberlin seems to have the same problem.  Every instinct he has is wrong.

It started in the late seventies, where he did alright running a fairly major drug business.  His instincts were somewhat good.  I am not thrilled that he as a major drug dealer, but in terms of the costs and benefits to Brett Kimberlin that seemed to work out well for him.

But the first bad instinct: wanting to be with a young girl.  Given recent revelations about his wife, there doesn’t seem to be any reasonable doubt that he had some kind of sexual relationship with Debbie Barton—the little girl that Mark Singer and others have identified as Jessica.  She was ten when Brett met her, fourteen when he exited her life, and even if he didn’t actually have sex with her (and I believe he did), there can be little doubt that he was sexually attracted to her.  So example number one: he might very well have stayed under the radar for years if he just did the opposite of what he desired, and left the girl alone entirely.

And we know that while the girl’s mother, Sandi Barton seemed to be okay with Brett lusting after her daughter, Debbie’s grandmother, Julia Scyphers, was upset by this and then she ended up dead and Brett Kimberlin ended up the lead suspect in a murder-for-hire theory by the police.

Now, if Brett had this woman killed, this would be the next example of him having a bad instinct.  He should have done the opposite of his instincts and just let her talk and ignore it.  But in my hypothetical he ended up calling more attention to himself—assuming he had her killed.

But to be fair, we still aren’t sure he had her killed although I am frankly more suspicious than ever on that count.  So we will just have to wonder if this is another example of his instincts leading him astray.

Okay, so rightly or wrongly, the police start to focus on him as the killer, as a murder for hire.  And then what does his instincts tell him?  “Hey, why don’t I plant a series of bombs to distract the cops?”  So his plan, as best as the police can tell, was to try to avoid suspicion for murder by committing terrorism.

And then having terrorized his community, he decides to get his car fixed at the shop, and leaves the explosives in the car.

Oh and other idiocy follows.  In prison he tries to convince another prisoner to commit murder for hire against the prosecutors and to frame another man for his own bombings.  And he does this in writing, so all the prisoner has to do is show the authorities what he wrote (and translate the markings) and that prisoner could get a reduced sentence for doing the government a solid.  Yeah, great instincts there.

And then while in prison, he decides to make a national spectacle of himself by falsely claiming he sold pot to Dan Quayle.  Yes, he got a little positive attention, but that attracted Mark Singer, who wanted to write a book about his life.  Brett’s instincts told him, “sure, I can buffalo this reporter long enough to get him to write a nice book about me.”  But in fact, he couldn’t so instead what he got was a treatise that is today the definitive word on what a son of a bitch he is.

In the meantime, he meets T. and his instinct is to have sex with her even though she was just fourteen years old.  He gives in to that instinct, and then brings her to the U.S. a few months before her sixteenth birthday.  If he waited until she was sixteen he would have committed no crime in the state of Maryland, but his instincts said otherwise.  Indeed, his instincts told him to make a pass at her twelve year old cousin, too.  And a few months later, and nine days after her birthday, his instincts told him to marry her and forge her birth certificate so it made it look legal when it was not.

At the same time, money starts to come in from the book that is trashing him.  But he has a judgment hanging over his head from the DeLongs.  So instead of paying them, his instinct is to try his best to swindle them.  Which in turns angers the authorities enough that he gets thrown back in prison.

Then finally he is let out, and he settles into something like a normal life.  At least it looks like it on the outside.  T. decides to leave him at one point, and his instincts aren’t to try to win her back by being affectionate.  No, it is by false charges, false attempts to commit her and so on.  Although to be fair, his “brass knuckle romance” works, for a while.

And there are other bumps in the road, dear reader, that I know about that I am not sharing with you just yet.  But then along comes Seth Allen and he starts writing about Brett Kimberlin’s past.  These are truthful statements, about his terrorism, and other creepy behavior on his part.  He could have just left Seth alone.  Seriously, Seth doesn’t know how to present his arguments in a cogent way, so that really only minimum damage could have been done by anything he wrote.  But instead Brett’s instincts were to sue Seth Allen for essentially telling the truth about him.

And around that time Mandy Nagy, a.k.a. Liberty Chick wrote her famous piece about him.  And Patrick Frey wrote about him.  And Kimberlin thought, “let me threaten them with a lawsuit.”  His instinct was to respond with force and threats, and the result was to make them even more interested in writing about him.

And in turn that made Mandy Nagy sympathize with Seth when he reached out to her.  She saw this as the same bully tactics that she faced.  And accordingly when she asked me to talk to him, I was perfectly willing to do so, because I care about free speech and dislike lawsuit abuse, and I don’t like terrorists.  So Brett Kimberlin was batting a tri-fecta with me.

So then the Kimberlin v. Allen case goes forward.  Allen manages to default which was unfortunate, but he did decide to fight on damages and they had a hearing.  And Kimberlin’s instinct was... to lie.

And then Kimberlin suddenly decided to come after me, for some reason.  I think his instincts told him that as a learning disabled person that I would be a pushover.  I think he believes that learning disabilities are some kind of madness or at least mental fragility.  In fact, I think it breeds just the opposite in me.  I am in all frankness the most stubborn person you are ever likely to meet.  When you write four times as slow as a normal person when you print, and twelve times as slow when you try to write cursive, for instance, stubbornness is a survival skill.

(I am perfectly normal in this respect when I type on a computer, but I didn’t have access to computers at school until I was in college.)

So he offended a very stubborn person, who knew how to present facts in a logical way, who would then be interested in poring over all the previous proceedings.  I mean up until then he had won against Seth Allen.  Sure, it was nominal damages, but a smart person would have taken that and gone home.  Instead he tried to use his case as a vehicle to go after a Yale-educated lawyer.  And so I pointed out to the court that he committed perjury in the hearing on damages.

And so then, next, he attempted to extort me into silence, in writing, threatening to file false charges.  And then when that failed, he actually attempted to frame me for a crime.

Sure, he has gotten away with it so far (but the charges can be revived literally at any time), but even he did something else: he really, really managed to piss me off.  And further, he did this in such a way that I had absolute proof of what he did.  He claimed that I beat him up outside a courtroom, and it never occurred to him that there were security cameras, or that I would get the footage and post it online, or show you how what he said about that day differed from what actually happened.

Take a look, if you haven’t seen it already:

So first I tried to quietly get them to charge him with a crime for having tried to frame me and when that failed, I went public.  It became big news for days, prompting even an “Everyone Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day.”  And Kimberlin’s instinct was to try to silence me by force again.  So he filed for a bogus Peace Order, convincing a judge to forbid me from blogging about Kimberlin for six months and even filed for bogus criminal charges and got me arrested.

And it backfired.

It made the story even larger than before.  It frankly made me friends with complete strangers, such as Robert McCain, Michelle Malkin and John Hoge, to name only a few.

Indeed, Kimberlin began blaming me for alleged crimes that I had nothing to do with.  A man named Martin Maher allegedly began contacting Kimberlin’s neighbors telling them about Brett’s past.  Kimberlin wrote out a criminal complaint against him and blamed me in the complaint.  He also accused John Norton of trying to take his picture, followed him down the road, and accused him of acting on my behalf.  That taught me that if Brett was doing something, I had to pay attention because he might falsely accuse me of involvement.

Oh, and when I convinced a court to lift the most offensive part of the order, prohibiting me from blogging about me, he had me SWATted (in my opinion).  I have no doubt on this point.  And once again, this backfired.

And at the same time he hired people like Bill Schmalfeldt to harass myself and my friends, which gave me a reason to keep the story alive as we filed charges against Schmalfeldt and he was even adjudicated a harasser in Carroll County Circuit Court.

And in the midst of all of this, T. Kimberlin leaves him.  And at first his instincts are good.  Just let her go.  Cry a little.  Yes, it must have hurt, but as best as I can tell he reacted pretty normally to the hurt.

And then on June 20, she went on vacation, and Kimberlin decided to investigate her and figured out she had a boyfriend she went on vacation with.  He could have reacted normally, but instead he decided to freak out.  He decided to file bogus charges against Jay Elliot and to stalk and harass the two of them, trying to get them fired from their jobs, etc.  And so because of his behavior, they did what Brett taught T. to do: get protection from the courts.  T. sought a protective order and Elliott sought a peace order.

And that got my attention.  Like I said, since Kimberlin tends to blame me for the actions of third parties, I had to attend, to keep tabs on things.  It would be negligent on my part to ignore it.  In the meantime Kimberlin filed for a peace order against Elliott...

...and to have his wife committed, based on a bogus petition.

So he goes to court and does the usual routine.  Silly charges against Jay Elliott, even reading off sexually explicit—and highly colorful—texts in open court.  One talked about Elliott “fucking your wife.”  And another talked about doing donuts in Kimberlin’s car while getting his dick sucked.  Sorry to get explicit, but it has to be explicit to understand the implications.  First, it was memorable.  Seriously, who could forget hearing that?  I almost burst out laughing in court.  Second, it wasn’t even true: Elliott didn’t send those texts and I have little doubt that Brett knew that as he read them.  And third, Brett read them in front of his children, including a nine year old girl, making it newsworthy that he did so.

And further, he caused her to be arrested at the end of the hearing, making me see very much that he was treating his wife very much like he treated me.  And of course that was newsworthy, too.

And it all did something else: it made Kimberlin news again.

And most of all, it made T. Kimberlin realize that she had two natural allies sitting right there.  Brett had told her for an entire year that Mr. Hoge and I were evil stalkers, and I don’t think she immediately realized that like everything else from Brett, this was bull.  But John reached out to Mr. Elliott and reaching out to him, he ended up meeting her and she gradually realized that everything Brett had told her about us wasn’t true.

And I will share something else with you, dear reader.  Being an abusive husband meant Brett Kimberlin was hitting a quad-fecta, now.  I don’t like lawsuit abuse, I don’t like censorship, I don’t like terrorists... and I have a special hatred in my heart for men who abuse women.  Probably a slightly sexist desire to protect women, but it’s there, and he triggered that in me, too.

So basically if he left her alone, let her leave him peacefully he might have been fine.  But instead, he literally drove her into our camp.

And you know by now she knew one of his darkest secrets: that he was a pedophile.  I mean it was not exactly a secret—we had good reasons to suspect this was the case for some time.  But she had evidence to prove it.  She had enough to move me from calling him a “suspected” pedophile, to just calling him one with confidence.

But Brett was still safe until she met me.  Because up until then, she thought that the statute of limitations had run.  But I already knew that Maryland was strange in its statute of limitations for misdemeanors and it took only a little research to verify for virtually all felonies, there is no statute of limitations, including the specific charge: sex offense in the third degree.  Or, as most people call it, statutory rape.

And now Brett is in a world of hurt and it will frankly get much, much worse for him going forward and he has no easy way out.

And all because he has followed his instincts, which at every turn has been wrong, not just morally but in terms of the costs and benefits for Brett Kimberlin.  He lives in his mother’s basement.  He is going to lose his children—if not Monday, at the next hearing, then soon.  Even without the charges of pedophilia, no court is going to take the children from their mother and give them to a convicted terrorist.  And he is more than likely going to go back to prison.  He might even have his parole revoked and serve the remainder of his fifty years for the bombings—in addition to the long potential sentences for his statutory rape of T.

So maybe it is time for a George Costanza moment.  Maybe it is time for him to do the opposite of his instincts.  When his instinct is to lie, maybe he should just tell the truth.  When his instinct is to intimidate, maybe he needs to stop that.  Oh, in the short term it will be painful, but maybe he can finally start having the success he has sought.  Who knows?  Certainly the history of the last few years suggest that what he is presently doing is not working anymore.

But I also think he is himself being manipulated by others into following this disastrous path.  But that will be the subject of another post...



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. "But I also think he is himself being manipulated by others into following this disastrous path."

    Of course he is, but not out of idealism. Many people suspect that he is a paid bag man for the left.

  2. Some dots to connect: How did Kimberlin get a passport with a record of international drug trafficking and terrorism? How did he get a visa? Who in State pulled strings for him, and why?

    Remember the horrifying comfort both ACORN and Planned Parenthood showed when approached about helping set up underaged prostitution rings?
