Brett Kimberlin Insists

Posted on | April 9, 2014 | 16 Comments

‘Speedway Bomber’ Brett Kimberlin was sentenced to 50 years in 1981

“Plaintiff has been under siege by the Defendants for more than two years. They have been engaged in constant cyber bullying and cyber stalking of him and his family by using information and communication technologies to support deliberate, repeated, and hostile behavior to harm Plaintiff. He lives in constant fear for himself and his family because of the bullying and threats against him.”
Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club, et. al.

“”As a specimen of shamelessness, Brett Kimberlin has few equals in human history.”
Robert Stacy McCain, Feb. 28

Despite the fact that Brett Kimberlin’s lawsuits have alleged that it is “harassment” and “stalking” for me to attend court hearings — the perjuring bomber fears for his life, he claims, at the mere thought of my proximity — Kimberlin actually wanted to subpoena me to appear in Montgomery County Circuit Court today.

The manifest absurdity of the Pro Se Pipsqueak’s claims in the Maryland Kimberlin v. Walker, et al., lawsuit have been self-evident from Day One, and yet the law requires us to take them seriously, so there will be a hearing this morning at which various motions will be heard. Kimberlin’s silly subpoena request was denied, but if my presence is so intimidating, why should I miss this opportunity to inflict “constant fear” on him? And speaking of which . . .

In July 2013, Brett Kimberlin’s wife filed for a domestic protective order against her husband, which I described at the time:

The estranged wife of progressive activist Brett Kimberlin says he has been “mentally abusive” to her, claiming in a Maryland court that Kimberlin has been “threatening” her and trying to get her fired from her job at a Montgomery County daycare center.
Tetyana Kimberlin, 32, sought a domestic protective order this week, saying her husband had “been going by my work and telling my employer I am going to be arrested,” and that Kimberlin, 59, “had me arrested before on false charges.”
Brett Kimberlin was convicted in 1981 for a weeklong series of Indiana bombings and sentenced to 50 years in federal prison, but served only 17 years. While imprisoned, Kimberlin became briefly famous during the 1992 election campaign by claiming to have once sold marijuana to then-Vice President Dan Quayle. Kimberlin is now director of two progressive non-profit groups, the 501c3 Justice Through Music Project and 501c4 Velvet Underground.
“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 Tuesday 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, saying she had been separated from him for seven months and now has a boyfriend, who also appeared in court Tuesday.

When a notorious convicted bomber’s estranged wife goes to court claiming that the violent felon is “threatening” her, that’s news. But covering this news is harassment and stalking, according to the bomber, and so I’ll be in court today, inspiring constant fear.

    Remember, this is not the first time abuse charges were filed against Kimberlin by his wife.

    Yeah, but I doubt that the American legal system will allow them to dip him in cheese whiz and bury him in a box filled with starving ferrets…still, here’s to hoping!

    Here’s hoping that the judge will actually look at the plaintiff’s history and understand that his claims of just being a poor pro se litigant who doesn’t know what he’s doing are utter bull poop, and treat him accordingly.

    Odds are that he’ll get a finger wagging and just be told not to forge summonses and stuff like that again. /sigh

    That is an interesting article from 2010 – it mentions how much in contributions were given to his foundations in 2008 – would be interesting to find the data for more recent years – 2009-2010-2011-2012 based on filings since then? Maybe it’s already been posted someone where, if anyone knows, please do a link.

    Kimberlin: “Hey, McFly, I thought I told you never to come in here.”

    McCain: “Fuck you, Biff.”
