The Fact of Evil: @Popehat Describes Brett Kimberlin’s Lawsuit Against Truth

Posted on | September 17, 2013 | 68 Comments

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

“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 GelardenIndianapolis Star, “Kimberlin case a maze of murder, deceit,” Oct. 18, 1981

Liars hate truth, and the wicked fear justice. Every honest man must oppose harassment and intimidation intended to silence those who call evil by its right name, because if truth is silenced, the righteous and innocent shall become prey for the wicked and dishonest.

God bless Ken White at Popehat, who hates evil liars:

One of the problems with Kimberlin’s complaint about being called a pedophile is that his detractors disclosed the factual basis for using that epithet against him. Among other things, they pointed out that (1) Kimberlin has said sexually creepy things about teenaged girls; (2) Mark Singer’s book about Kimberlin describes a relationship with an underaged girl that some find inappropriate and suggestive of pedophilia; (3) Kimberlin’s wife accused him of having sex with her before she was 16, and in 2013 filed charges against him on that basis, although prosecutors declined to prosecute the case and she apparently later retracted and disavowed the charges after the defendants wrote about them; and (4) even accepting Kimberlin’s position that he did not have sex with his wife before she was 16, by his own version of events it appears that he met her in Russia before she was 16 when he was in his 40s, she traveled to the United States, and they married when she was 16 and he in his 40s. . . .

Please read the whole righteous truth.

UPDATE: Let me slightly disagree with Ken White:

People follow and support Brett Kimberlin for several reasons. First, like many sociopaths, he is superficially charming and socially adept. People support him for the same reason that people got into Ted Bundy’s Volkswagen Bug.

Clever, but somewhat inaccurate. People who support Brett Kimberlin are either spectacularly stupid or active agents of evil.

Which is to say, they’re Democrats.

That statement of fact probably won’t endear me to any Democrat lawyers who may be considering taking on the battle against Brett Kimberlin, but it is important that anybody who gets into this thing know exactly what they’re getting into, eh? Whereas a sociopath like Brett Kimberlin will tell any lie to achieve his evil purposes — and falsely accuse others of doing the wrongs he is himself actually doing — an honest man will speak truth even at his own peril.

Even at this very minute, Brett Kimberlin’s vicious allies are lying about me, and why? Because I keep telling the truth about them.

Go read the rest of Ken’s post, and thank him in the comments for help.

    I’m hoping for something permanent here.

    A perjurer who left bombs to try and distract the cops? Nemesis is waiting.

    “When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar…” Spoken about the original liar but the shoe seems to fit Team Kimberlin perfectly. Known by the company they keep, eh?

    Oh…the down-rater Nazi is here. I think you all know what that means.

    I must start the gratuitous up-rating.

    “… one might ask which one RSM was when he was young–stupid, or evil …”

    1. I was born and raised a Democrat. I never met a Republican, that I can remember, until my junior year of college, and I never voted Republican until 1994, when I was 35.

    2. Not to excuse my errors, but merely to explain myself — dismiss this as special pleading, if you will — Sam Nunn and Zell Miller were not Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. There was a time when being a “moderate Democrat” at least seemed to make sense. Bill Clinton’s first two years in office cured me of that delusion.

    3. The problem with much conservative rhetoric in recent years is that it continues to attack “liberals,” as if it were still possible to vote Democrat without advancing liberalism. Those days are gone, and a more partisan rhetoric is necessary because as Democrats have become an almost exclusively radical party, the “moderate Democrat” has become a myth that serves only to empower the Left.

    Right: I am not a lawyer, nor have I yet retained an attorney. I have my own definite ideas about a strategy, but am assured both by legal scholars who have looked at the complaint and by my own common sense that Brett’s case is rather shoddy. However, exactly what approach an attorney will take in addressing the suit, I’m not able to say, and don’t want to assist the plaintiff by saying anything very specific about the case, per se.

    On the other hand, (a) Neal Rauhauser’s latest boast seems to make Neal’s actions relevant to the suit, which is not good for Kimberlin, and (b) as the entire purpose of Brett naming me in the suit is to shut me up, I don’t plan on shutting up any more than is absolutely required by my legal defense.

    Well, I’ve often pointed out Seth Allen’s role.

    Seth saw Velvet Revolution as a scammy sort of operation that was exploiting claims of election fraud for publicity and fundraising. So, yeah, having a bogus and ineffective left-wing outfit sucking up money and accomplishing nothing could be a good thing, from a certain perspective.

    On the other hand, as a D.C. policeman once said to P.J. O’Rourke about criminal lowlifes: “Air should be illegal if they breathe it.”

    My first vote for a Republican was in 1993, for Richard Riordan in the mayoral race. I was 31 years old.

    After campaigning for a friends father in 1984, I realized that I was a conservative. This guy (the man I was campaigning for) was a sleezball of the first order. His campaign would regularly make up crap about his opponent (stuff that was impossible to verify) and feed it to the news.
    He lost his bid, of course, because Ronald Reagan had long coat tails.

    Sam Nunn and Zell Miller were not Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi.

    As much as the media harps on how “Right wing” the “Republicans” have “moved”, this needs to be shouted much more loudly and often.

    The R’s have moved less left relatively – but they’ve moved left, to be sure. The D’s went hard left, and except in a few areas, it’s working out for them.

    But JFK would be now derided as a “teabagger” were he running for office with his stances today.

    I was a Dem from my first vote for Jimmy Carter through 2004, when I finally stopped registering Democrat. That’s 30+ years and I was stoopid for every one of them, stoopid enough even toI stay Democrat while voting for Reagan and the Bushes.

    If Neal Rauhauser claims to have supported the lawsuit (Twitter forensics? They got a swab for that?), then my automatic thought is that he did nothing and is trying to claim “credit” for some reason.
