Your Honor, May I Direct the Court’s Attention to Exhibit J, Please?
UPDATE: Who Is ‘Forced to Engage’?

Brett Kimberlin could have been sentenced to 230 years in federal prison

In the case of Walker v. Kimberlin, Exhibit J is an e-mail that Brett Kimberlin, acting as his own lawyer, sent to Aaron Walker’s attorney Dan Backer, stating in part:

I don’t know what kind of litigation you think this is but I see it as a form of harassment. You are trying to get discovery in a case that fails to state a valid legal claim, that is whole frivolous and malicious, and which,  if you proceed, will subject you to sanctions.
You have filed for default against people you haven’t served and who have no assets whatsoever. Ok let’s take this to the next step. You get default, then what? Get a hearing on damages? Go after their assets? They have none. So really you are just harassing them. You should really be ashamed of yourself for being party to such reprehensible conduct.
As I said, I have chosen December 15 because, inter alia, I am coopering with nthe FBI and other law enforcement officials regarding several issues involving your client and I believe that the resolution of those matters will have a bearing on this case.

Let’s point out a few things, shall we?

  • Aaron Walker has said that Kimberlin, among other things, tried to “frame” him for a bogus assault charge.
  • Kimberlin is an expert on “frivolous and malicious” legal actions, having filed more than 100 actions on his own behalf as a “jailhose lawyer” while he was imprisoned for the 1978 bombing spree in Indiana that earned him the sobriquet, “The Speedway Bomber.”
  • Kimberlin dares speak of “harassment,” when Kimberlin has sued blogger Seth Allen and threatened to sue journalist Mandy Nagy and blogger Patrick Frey for nothing other than the fact that they have written about Kimberlin’s notorious criminal history. Furthermore, Kimberlin has made spurious complaints in an attempt to get Frey fired from his job.
  • Kimberlin refers to (but does not name) his co-defendants, Neal Rauhauser and Ron Brynaert, asserting that they “have no assets whatsoever” — how does Kimberlin know this? How is it that he is privy to the financial condition of Rauhauser and Brynaert? And what business of Kimberlin’s what sort of motions Backer has filed against Rauhauser and Brynaert?

The alleged relationship between Kimberlin, Rauhauser and Brynaert is at the very heart of Walker’s case.

UPDATE: As anticipated and intended, Saturday’s post — “Neal Rauhauser, Who Drove Barrett Brown Off the Deep End, Continues Unrelenting Harassment of His Targets” — has gotten the attention of Rauhauser and his pet troll, “Occupy Rebellion.” 

Yesterday, Rauhauser wrote on his Blog No One Should Link that I was “forced to engage after resolute silence,” and why was that, Neal? I’m sure you don’t know and I’ll give you no hints. Suffice to say that my assistance was solicited, and that my “resolute silence” was simply because I’ve been busy covering the presidential election campaign. (PPP: Obama’s Lead In Ohio Dwindles To 1.)

Keep in mind that Rauhauser, by inciting Nadia Naffe’s lawsuit against Patterico, has obligated Patterico to avoid writing about this subject on advice of counsel, and Aaron Walker‘s attorneys have advised him likewise. So two of the bloggers most knowledgeable about what I call the Kimberlin-Rauhauser Axis are not in a position to tell readers what’s happening on that front. William Hoge has been keeping tabs on the court proceedings, but Rauhauser’s  methodical cyberstalking required my special attention.

Rauhauser asserts on his blog that I am a “slithering slime merchant” for pointing out that it was he — Neal Rauhauser — who provoked Barrett Brown’s memorable meltdown by feeding Barrett a false conspiracy theory about Jennifer Emick, and then convincing Barrett to push attacks on Patterico and me. Go watch the 13-minute video that got Brown arrested:

“I got to find out, thanks to a hack — thanks to another f–king stroke of luck, thank God — that HB Gary, since mid-February, had hired an FBI informant . . . making up reasons to raid Barrett Brown and get his information. . . .
“It turns out — from the e-mails that were stolen two months ago and that, thank God, I have — that that guy was an old military buddy of HB Gary executive Jim Butterworth. . . . I know what’s been done to me by these f–king contractors . . .
“FBI agent Robert Smith is a criminal who’s involved in a criminal conspiracy that has, thank God, been revealed, part of which was evident months ago, because I told the f–king FBI agent Daniel Forseck . . . when his f–king little Jennifer Emick — f–king informant, HB Gary employee — bragging about the sh-t, she gave me the number. I guess she wanted to talk to me and see what I’d say.”

Emick is certainly hated by Anonymous, so she made a convenient scapegoat, but there are those who believe that the “hack” which caused Barrett to begin raving incoherently about his plans to “destroy” an FBI agent was, in fact, a forgery created by Rauhauser.

That’s right: Neal Rauhauser is suspected of manufacturing “evidence” in support of his conspiracy theories, and feeding bogus messages to Barrett Brown in such a way as to play on Brown’s paranoia and cause the online meltdown that got Brown arrested.

What would happen if, as a result of the proceedings against Barrett Brown, we were to learn more about what sneaky business the compulsively dishonest Rauhauser has been pursuing behind the scenes? I don’t know, but I suspect Neal’s deeply worried.

Rauhauser is also deeply worried about the Walker v. Kimberlin case, where a key hearing is scheduled next Friday, which no doubt explains why Neal has begun touting what he calls the “Kookpocalypse Konclusion” with a countdown clock to Friday, Oct. 26.

UPDATE II: “Occupy Rebellion” claims that I am blogging about Rauhauser merely to raise money:

Hey, I’ve always been a Shameless Capitalist Blogger, and this experiment in reader-supported journalism has inspired remarkable generosity by those who appreciate the work. Both site traffic and contributions to The Shoe Leather Fund increased during the six weeks when I wrote about almost nothing else except The Kimberlin Files.

Furthermore, I think readers can well imagine what havoc and mischief Kimberlin, Rauhauser & Co. might have wreaked in the fall campaign season, if an Army of Davids had not brought their evil works into the light of day. Exposed under constant scrutiny from late May onward, and on the defensive in the courtroom because of the lawsuit brought by Aaron Walker, the Kimberlin-Rauhauser Axis has been effectively sidelined in this election.

You made that happen — the readers, the tip-jar hitters, all the bloggers and activists who joined the fight in defense of Aaron Walker, who helped defend the First Amendment rights of citizen-journalists against the criminal Kimberlin and his minions — and it is with profound gratitude that I salute your efforts, and thank you for the opportunity to be of service in this worthy cause.

So if “Occupy Rebellion” wants to whine about my fundraising, she’s really whining about you, and if you want to give her a little more to whine about, I’ll once more remind you of the Five Most Important Words in the English Language:


And, as I said on a memorable occasion five months ago, never doubt that God answers prayer.

    I suspect that Mr. Kimberlin is terrified of having to fulfill discovery and will fight it tooth and nail…all the way up until Sheriff’s deputies arrive at his house…and catch him destroying evidence.

    Well, supposedly, the financial records of both VR and JTMP are in the care of the lawyer, so he wouldn’t be able to destroy those. Supposedly. If you believe he’s got the slightest respect for the law.

    That kind of supposedly.

    John Hoge’s work in keeping us informed and keeping this story alive deserve the highest praise.

    He’s an unrelenting and fierce warrior for The Truth.

    My only problem with John Hoge’s work is that there isn’t enough of it. He always leaves me wanting more!

    To be exact, the hack wasn’t fake, but the related claims (and the falsely named PDF) were certainly engineered. It never required a hack for anyone to know I entered the fray primarily to assist victims (including HBGary) in identifying their victimizers. All of the ridiculous conspiracy theories that followed are false…and quite a bit silly.
