The Sex Charge Against Brett Kimberlin @NealRauhauser Wanted You to See

Click here or click the image to see the complete document:

Brett Kimberlin’s estranged wife filed those charges on July 29, and I reported the charges she filed. The charges were subsequently dropped, for reasons unclear to me, but Brett Kimberlin has sued me and four others, claiming he is a victim of “malicious prosecution, conspiracy to abuse process, defamation, false light invasion of privacy, harassment, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and stalking.”

Then, predictably, the online entities of “Team Kimberlin” began boasting online about how everything alleged by convicted perjurer and pro se litigant Brett Kimberlin is certainly true and the defendants are undeniably guilty. Team Kimberlin (including Bill Schmalfeldt, Neal Rauhauser, @BreitbartUnmask and @x3n0ph0n) claimed to possess knowledge of proceedings in the case, alleging that I had been “served” in Maryland (false) and asserting that Ali Akbar was “dodging” service in the case (he is not). All of this pro-Kimberlin activity, you understand, undermines a key allegation in the Kimberlin v. Walker et al. lawsuit, namely that the defendants have defamed him by describing the activities of “Team Kimberlin.”

Kimberlin’s association with Bill Schmalfeldt and Neal Rauhauser is an easily demonstrated fact, and the coordinated actions of @BreitbartUnmask and @x3n0ph0n are similarly provable.

It should not be forgotten that Rauhauser’s connection to Kimberlin was what originally inspired my interest in this story. But Neal can’t help bragging, and so he went online to claim that the sex charge Kimberlin’s estranged wife filed on July 29 was a “smear,” a “fake rape charge,” for which the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. lawsuit was deserved punishment:

This is not the first time that Rauhauser’s habitual bragging has hurt Kimberlin (see my Sept. 17 post, “BOOM: Neal Rauhauser Admits Playing Key Role in Brett Kimberlin Lawsuit“), but Rauhauser evidently shares Kimberlin’s belief that a $1 million lawsuit will shut me up while his various associates help Kimberlin create yet another phony “Accuse the Accusers” narrative. This has been the pattern going back more than two years — ask Patterico about the frivolous lawsuit Neal Rauhauser incited Nadia Naffe to file — and it would seem to be Neal and Brett’s belief they can keep running this game forever.

No, you can’t. It’s going to stop. Kimberlin will lose his lawsuit, and Neal Rauhauser’s dishonest harassment is part of the reason why.

 Everybody go read the details in the document Brett Kimberlin’s estranged wife filed July 29, and then compare my coverage:

Was my reporting and commentary justified by the descriptions in the document? And, in light of previous reporting about Kimberlin, was this implausible? Furthermore, did it not seem likely that Kimberlin might seek to harm or intimidate his estranged wife in retaliation for her having made these accusations against him? So if these charges were subsequently withdrawn, is it not possible that his estranged wife was coerced or intimidated into dropping the charges?

Go read the the petition for a domestic protection order that Kimberlin’s estranged wife filed on July 7, a development in this strange story that I did not report until July 9. Kimberlin’s wife says she left him in December — seven months before I knew anything about her — and I never saw her in person until the day of the July 29 hearing.

So exactly how Brett Kimberlin, a convicted perjurer, imagines he will prove that my coverage of this story constitutes “malicious prosecution, conspiracy to abuse process, defamation, false light invasion of privacy, harassment, intentonal infliction of emotional distress, and stalking” is certainly mysterious.

Maybe he thinks he can lie his way through it.

But if that lying creep Brett Kimberlin thinks he can make me shut up because I’m afraid of him or Neal Rauhauser or Bill Schmaleldt or any other idiots who have signed up for Team Kimberlin, he is sadly mistaken, because that is a game that Homey does not play.

I had no plans to publish that document, and if Brett Kimberlin wants to blame anyone beside himself, he can blame Neal Rauhauser.

    I was wondering when someone was going to bring up his extreme penchant for dupers delight. This is one of the reasons I rate him a 5. Any sociopath can reap carnage. But a grade 9 or 10 can do it with a master poker face and nobody will be the wiser. I completely agree with you Sarah. Anybody who is taken in by Neal…wants to be taken in.

    Sociopaths/psychopaths are not some mythical breed of super geniuses. They come in all variety of intelligence levels. And one IQ test is not definitive. I’ve had four. All of them with different scores. Don’t buy everything you hear. Especially if Neal is the originator of the 160 IQ rumor.

    Perhaps, but who told that former associate that Neal had a 160 IQ? I’m guessing it was Neal. And I’m not entirely trustful of someone who is a compulsive liar.

    It’s kind of funny that so many gamers understand that having high wisdom points enable you to be a badass wizard. It fails to translate into RL, though.

    I always thought that was a bit odd.

    The hard part about dealing with Neal Rauhauser is trying to figure out whether his motives are evil, crazy or — as is often the case — both crazy and evil.

    Did I mention Neal lies constantly? Because he does.

    Neal is highly intelligent — that’s legit, and I never underestimate his devious creativity. His problem is emotional. He is a classic narcissist, trying to repair a damaged ego by grandiose self-representation.

    This is what most people don’t understand about pathological narcissists, i.e., the ego damage at the root of it. Narcissism of the pathological variety isn’t just about being a show-off; it’s about someone trying to make up for an extraordinary emotional deficit.

    But, where are all the news reports of these alleged SWATtings? All of the others made the news. But mysteriously nobody has ever heard of the SWATtings you just listed.

    Well, except from Neal and his associates of course.

    I never said Neal wasn’t smart. But he’s dumb too. The key here is to find balance. Don’t underestimate him, but overestimate him either.

    He’s not the bogey-man. He’s not some mythological internet sock-monster. He’s a run-of-the-mill sociopath, who happens to wreak his havoc on the internet. However, he’s still known as the Hanta Virus of the internet…as sociopaths go. So wear protection.

    And one last thing before I forget…

    […] else: Brett Kimberlin really, really hates when people mention the sex charges his wife filed against him July 29. Sure, the charges got dropped, so there’s no chance he’s going to be arrested […]
