Brett Kimberlin’s Enemies List Expands to Include His Estranged Wife: ‘She’s Nuts!’

Posted on | July 18, 2013 | 76 Comments

“What [Brett Kimberlin] revealed is the creepy depths he goes to when he is angry at someone, trying to smear their reputations.”
Aaron Walker, “Final Peace Order Hearing Between Jay Elliott and Brett Kimberlin,” July 16

“Kimberlin, you may recall, was the convicted bomber, habitual liar, and all-around sociopath who claimed to have sold drugs to Dan Quayle.”
— “Cody Shearer,” Slate, May 22, 1999

“Kimberlin seemed to be the only one with a possible motive — to distract police attention from the Scyphers murder and delay or halt their quiet investigation of him.”
R. Joseph Gelarden, Indianapolis Star, “Kimberlin case a maze of murder, deceit,” Oct. 18, 1981

One thing you learn quickly about convicted bomber Brett Kimberlin is the wholly selfish, negative and destructive nature of his personality. If Brett Kimberlin hates you, he will do anything within his power to harm you — even though he derives no benefit from these destructive acts other than the sadistic vengeful pleasure of inflicting harm. Now that Kimberlin is engaged in legal warfare against his wife who left him, we can observe conclusive proof that (a) Kimberlin’s attacks on enemies like Aaron Walker were never really about politics, and (b) the “Accuse the Accusers” method is Kimberlin’s characteristic strategy.

In an effort to discredit his estranged wife Tetyana, Brett Kimberlin had her taken into custody July 6, seeking to have her involuntarily committed for psychiatric evaluation. This vindictive strategy failed — Tetyana was immediately released by Montgomery County District Court Judge Patricia Mitchell — but Kimberlin has continued this destructive smear against her. In a hearing Tuesday before Maryland District Court Judge Barry Hamilton, Kimberlin claimed that Tetyana is mentally ill, off her medications for bipolar disorder.

Note that this smear was entirely irrelevant to the matter before the court, namely the effort of Tetyana’s boyfriend Jay Elliott to get a final peace order against Kimberlin. The judge unfortunately denied that peace order, which means that Kimberlin will be free to continue the harassment Elliott described in his petition:

Elliott, who is employed as a restaurant manager, wrote in his peace order petition that Kimberlin had been threatening and harassing him since October, “calling my work and say[ing] I better watch out.” Elliot said Kimberlin is “going to make me lose my job. … Now my job is on the line. … This is getting out of control.”

Furthermore, Brett Kimberlin has unleashed his online presence against his wife to reinforce his attempts to discredit and destroy her.

A pro-Kimberlin Internet site (which I will neither name nor link) published these tendentious assertions:

Mental illness is a common problem that tears many American families apart, but Tetyana Kimberlin was able to remain with her husband Brett and their children despite her malady. Friends knew them as a troubled, but loving family that was beating its challenges. In fact, Tetyana stopped taking her medication last year, and Brett was worried. . . .
Mental illness often results in arrest and unemployment, but it isn’t clear what arrest Tetyana is talking about. The people who know Brett and Tetyana best understand exactly why he would ask the judge to have her examined. . . .
Note that in Maryland, being off your medication is not enough grounds to be involuntarily committed. Tetyana has to want to get better, and she will never want to get well as long as she has a support network to keep her from hitting bottom.

Please notice these intimations of personal familiarity: “Friends knew them . . . The people who know Brett and Tetyana best . . .”

Who is the author of these claims on a pro-Kimberlin site? Other than the attempt to smear and discredit Tetyana, what possible motive could anyone have for publishing such things? Does Tetyana Kimberlin know the person responsible for these attacks?

Accuse the Accusers” — a strategy by which Kimberlin and his allies seek to discredit anyone who tells the truth about Brett Kimberlin.

The use of pseudonyms (and a site hosted by a secretive overseas provider used by many pornographers) permits Brett Kimberlin to deny responsibility for smears against his estranged wife. His online presence, which we can call “Team Kimberlin,” employs distracting psy-ops tactics to transfer agency, to falsely portray Kimberlin as a victim, creating confusion about the sequence and causality of events. Team Kimberlin is now claiming that bloggers John Hoge and Aaron Walker have caused events which in fact they have merely reported.

A notorious criminal, Brett Kimberlin is now terrorizing his estranged wife and her boyfriend. Brett Kimberlin in 2007 made his family the subject of an 800-word feature article in the Washington Post.

“‘Happy Springtime (Bush Is Over)’ is more than five minutes of John ‘n’ Yoko footage, of birds fluttering past a billboard reading ‘Imagine Peace’ and of beautiful children singing . . . A credit at the end leads viewers to Justice Through Music, a civic engagement nonprofit run by Kelsie’s father. . . .
“The credit for ‘Springtime’ goes to Kelsie’s dad, musician-activist Brett Kimberlin. . . .
“‘All of the kids in the choir are very liberal,’ says Brett Kimberlin. ‘They wouldn’t do this if they weren’t in the cause.’
“Kelsie agrees. ‘I don’t like Bush because he sends people to be killed,’ she says.”

Monica Hesse, “A Little Surprise For the Prize-Giver,” Washington Post, Nov. 8, 2007

Such enthusiastic publicity may help explain why, for example, Kimberlin’s 501(c)3 tax-exempt Justice Through Music Project received $5,000 from the Barbra Streisand Foundation in 2008, its best fundraising year ever, when total contributions to JTMP were reported to the IRS as $558,543 — for “social justice,” you know.

Now that his wife has left him, however, Brett Kimberlin thinks that Tetyana and Jay Elliott’s claims of harassment are not newsworthy and — surprise, surprise! — reporter Monica Hesse and her editors at the Washington Post seem to agree, because they haven’t published a word about these disturbing developments in the career of the convicted felon they so enthusiastically celebrated in 2007.

Evil is what Brett Kimberlin is. Evil is what Brett Kimberlin does. Everyone who assists Brett Kimberlin is an accomplice to evil, and silence about Brett Kimberlin’s evil is a form of assistance.

“‘He told me if I will try to take my kids with me he will hurt me and I will see what will happen to me,’ Kimberlin’s Russian-born wife wrote in her petition for a protection order, a case that was heard [July 9] in Silver Spring, Maryland. ‘He tells my 14-year-old about his plans about me and what he is going to do with me.’
“Kimberlin has ‘been calling me terrible names … telling my children that I am mentally ill,’ his wife wrote . . .”

“Progressive Activist Brett Kimberlin ‘Abusive … Threatening,’ Wife Claims”

What might have happened if Monica Hesse or anyone else at The Washington Post had ever told the truth about Brett Kimberlin?

One week ago, I called them out for their deliberate lies:

Brett Kimberlin: The ‘Musician-Activist’
That @MonicaHesse Wants You to Forget

Checking the archives a week later: NOTHING.

Because Monica Hesse and the Washington Post are active and willing agents of Brett Kimberlin’s evil.

By her deliberate and shameless silence, Monica Hesse is now assisting Brett Kimberlin’s harassment of his estranged wife Tetyana.

Brett Kimberlin, despite being forbidden from testifying in Maryland, was able to present testimony of his own. . . . [H]e made ugly, unsubstantiated and ultimately irrelevant allegations about them both . . . As he was defaming this man and the mother of his children, the judge actually cut him off, saying, “I don’t care about that.” . . .
[O]f particular interest is his bizarre accusation that Elliott was a Mormon who planned to make Ms. Kimberlin part of his polygamous harem . . .
He also had the nerve to call Elliott a “predator.” This from a guy who once called a ten year old girl his “girlfriend.” But this is typical of Brett Kimberlin: accuse the accusers of doing what you actually did.

That’s from Aaron Worthing’s account of Tuesday’s hearing, and you could also read John Hoge’s brief account of Tuesday’s hearing, but you cannot read a Washington Post account of Tuesday’s hearing. But this omission does not surprise any honest person.

The Washington Post is a disgrace to journalism that employs hired liars like Monica Hesse. The Washington Post and Monica Hesse are engaged in a conspiracy to conceal the truth about Brett Kimberlin.

In 2007, Monica Hesse did not tell the truth about Brett Kimberlin, and in 2013, she will not tell the truth about Brett Kimberlin.

The truth about Brett Kimberlin has never been printed in the Washington Post, nor will it ever be. No honest person would work for the Washington Post, which only publishes evil lies.

    Here’s what most disturbed me about that post you cited from the pro-Kimberlin site that shall not be linked: The writer, whomever he or she is, in the same paragraph portrays Tetyana as a victim of her illness, almost childlike. Then she is attacked as a coldhearted witch who is only out for herself. Which is it?

    And he was convicted of perjury, but according to Team Kimberlin members, people are fools for taking the word of others over his.

    You’ve apparently not been paying attention to the Boston Bomber being drooled over by “women”.

    Also the phenomenon of women INTENTIONALLY writing and MARRYING convicted felons while in prison.

    I don’t know, it must be the Estrogen.

    You describe the typical lack of self-awareness that is symptomatic of certain personality disorders. It’s as if the desperate impulse to attack and destroy the demonized scapegoat blots out whatever rational capacity the person ever had, so they never stop to think, “Does this make sense?”

    Long ago, I noticed how Bill Schmalfeldt doesn’t realize that the tone and content of his attacks — the unspeakably vile things he said about Lee Stranahan, the incessant angry ranting on Twitter, etc. — are so repulsive and obnoxious that he discredits himelf in the eyes of sane people.

    And so, yeah, the inability to maintain a consistent argument is scarcely surprising.

    Remember readers Kimberlin was convicted of marijuana importation.

    They are consistently hypocritical.

    Yes, the lack of self awareness is remarkable. The “women as whores” meme is prominent, for example. BS has been married three times, yet he never talks about wife #1, while referring to wife #2 in vile terms. This stands out to me because it is anomalous behavior for him, which I find curious, indeed.
