Liars Gotta Lie, Failures Gotta Fail

Thanks to The Lonely Conservative for inspiring the headline: I have just seen a motion to dismiss Brett Kimberlin’s ludicrous federal RICO suit — Kimberlin v. the Universe, et al. — as regards the defendants whom Kimberlin has failed to serve, and this motion includes the following beautiful words:

Plaintiff Has Failed to Serve
Anonymous Defendant “Ace of Spades”

It is obvious that Plaintiff does not know the identity of the person or person(s) blogging under the pseudonym Ace of Spades (“Ace”). This is demonstrated by Plaintiff’s recent seeking of third-party subpoenas for information that might lead to Ace’s identity. Plaintiff’s egregious delay in identifying this Defendant should not be permitted to stall the progress of the instant lawsuit. Given Plaintiff’s lack of service on Ace after 120 days, the instant lawsuit should be dismissed against that Defendant.

Yeah, tough to serve a subpoena on the Forest Moon of Endor.

In case you didn’t know it, identifying (“doxing”) Ace of Spades has been a pet project of Neal Rauhauser’s since 2011. One of the ways I knew that the pro-Kimberlin “Breitbart Unmasked” site was connected to Rauhauser was that in 2012 there were a couple of posts there (which may have been deleted since) speculating about Ace’s identity/location. Why Ace? Well, Ace did some of the best work on the 2011 WeinerGate scandal and Neal was obsessed with that, which is also how Neal became obsessed with Patterico.

Keep in mind that Rauhauser’s obsession with Ace pre-dated the whole “Everybody Blog About Brett Kimberlin” uproar. Here we are, 21 months later — and long since anybody gave a damn about Anthony Weiner — and Rauhauser’s grandiose vengeance fantasy lives on in the form of Ace being named as a RICO defendant.

You can click here to see how Rauhauser was bragging in December about what a wonderful thing this RICO suit was going to be, all the defendants were going to prison, yadda yadda yadda.

Fuck you, Neal Rauhauser.

    Speaking of RICO, Schmalfeldt is engaged in what may turn out to be a full two week meltdown. His behavior is sheer lunacy. What is going on? It seems like all of that krazy krew is pulling out the stops. Something must have them riled up and desperate.

    Stupid question: how would a civil RICO suit, brought by a private party, result in prison time, which is the province of criminal courts and the result of a successful prosecution by the state?

    NR et al claim to have entertained hopes of criminal RICO charges from this. I say claim because they lie a lot, and it could just have been part of a strategy to get the defendants to roll over and beg for mercy.

    Lies or delusions, it is not always easy to separate them out in the fevered swamp that is NR and BK’s mind.

    My guess: he’s being egged on by BK now that BK is realizing that his brilliant lawsuit is going to get tossed out as frivolous and he’s been caught forging a court-issued document

    Heh. More lies from Neal Rauhauser, how novel. If words are being typed by Neal, lies are being told. I really think he lives in an alternate reality … His hand may be seen (and motives detected) in all the crap coming from Kimberlin and his sycophants.

    I just read BS’s letter to the judge. I am offended by that pissant throwing out PARKINSON’S! at every turn and intimating that John Hoge is attempting to kill him via PARKINSON’S!. As someone who is terminally ill and in the end stage of life I am actually offended by that behavior. May the Lord God reward him with what he falsely claims (and soon too!). This assclown sickens me.

    So long as you don’t have a 12-year-old*, that BK finds attractive, you’ll probably be safe enough.

    Let’s just say that Rauhauser has a rich fantasy life.

    That tends to happen when you have to live like a cockroach to avoid process servers and paying your child support, and can’t hold a job or pay rent, etc.

    He imagines himself a mastermind, although you don’t find many masterminds living in other people’s basements or crashing on couches, and in his spite-filled dreams all his enemies, real and imagined, would be rounded up and imprisoned.

    People know what he looks like – he sometimes participates in public panels and the like, but under his nom de plume. And he can only be summoned by those few officials entrusted with the Ewok Signal.

    I don’t know if soaking him in cold water and lye for several days would improve him at all, but it is surely worth a try.
