Risking the Wrath of a Kimberlin/Miley Cyrus Lawsuit

It’s been sug­gested that the Brett Kim­ber­lin suit against blog­gers is about silenc­ing peo­ple or at least mak­ing them think twice con­cern­ing writ­ing about him. Being a per­son of lim­ited means totally depen­dent on my read­ers for my per­sonal income that thought does weigh on my mind.

After all yes­ter­day Pat­terico reported this con­cern­ing Brett Kim­ber­lin suit vs bloggers:

A search of court records reveals the com­plaint is for “DEFAMA­TION, MALI­CIOUS PROS­E­CU­TION, HARASS­MENT, STALK­ING, CON­SPIR­ACY, INVA­SION OF PRI­VACY AND INTEN­TIONAL INFLIC­TION OF EMO­TIONAL DISTRESS.”

That sounds seri­ous and other than the poten­tial of dis­cov­ery I doubt any of the peo­ple involved are happy about being sued.

So when I saw this link from Jeff Quin­ton yes­ter­day and fol­lowed it to this post he wrote from last year that linked to this bit at Ace of Spades say­ing this:

While I, and Kimberlin’s other tar­gets, are heart­ened by Con­gress’ let­ter to Eric Holder to look into the SWAT­ting mat­ter, what a read­ing of Cit­i­zen K demon­strates is that Con­gress itself needs to act in order to finally put an end to Brett Kimberlin’s ongo­ing dig­i­tal (and real-​life) terrorism.

Because not even prison stopped Brett Kimberlin’s crimes. While work­ing as a prison clerk, Brett Kim­ber­lin forged his own release order, forg­ing all nec­es­sary sig­na­tures; he planned to release him­self at 12:01 am on Memo­r­ial Day week­end. His plan is that no one would attempt to call the war­den to con­firm the release in the mid­dle of the night on a hol­i­day week­end; to make the process of con­firm­ing the strange mid­night release, he also took the step of remov­ing con­tact infor­ma­tion from the office’s Rolodex. This scheme was ready to be exe­cuted, but for a lucky break for jus­tice: Kim­ber­lin was unex­pect­edly moved to another prison before Memo­r­ial Day, and his forged release form was now useless.

Another job he was assigned to in prison was doing qual­ity con­trol for mil­i­tary equip­ment. Rather than ensur­ing that equip­ment used by the men and women of the armed forces were in proper work­ing order, Brett Kim­ber­lin gave the equip­ment a pos­i­tive rat­ing — and then cut the wires himself.

This is not an alle­ga­tion; this is an amus­ing anec­dote he enjoys brag­ging about. From Cit­i­zen K, page 184, directly quot­ing Kim­ber­lin from the many con­ver­sa­tions the author had with him in prepar­ing the book:

I’d run the cables through qual­ity con­trol,” [Kim­ber­lin] said. “I’d check them. I’d sign off on them. And then I’d cut some of the damn wires.”

I was very wor­ried about what might hap­pen to me for quot­ing it.

After all to Brett Kim­ber­lin quot­ing his attempt at escape might con­sti­tute DEFAMA­TION as he didn’t actu­ally exe­cute this plan.

Kim­ber­lin may con­sider it HARASS­MENT to have my read­ers in 50 states & 170 coun­tries reminded of his will­ful destruc­tion of mil­i­tary equipment.

It’s not the first post I’ve writ­ten about Brett Kim­ber­lin so this post might be con­strued as STALK­ING.

I’m a known friend of Robert Stacy McCain, attended Blog­bash and par­tic­i­pated in “Every­body blog about Brett Kim­ber­lin day. Kim­ber­lin will surely think that was proof of a CON­SPIR­ACY.

While they appear on an A list blog (Ace’s site is in the top 25k world­wide & top 10k nation­ally) and in a book titled: Cit­i­zen K: The Deeply Weird Amer­i­can Jour­ney of Brett Kim­ber­lin by Mark Singer avail­able at Ama­zon here Kim­ber­lin might con­sider it an INVA­SION OF PRI­VACY to report on this events long forgotten..

Finally for Kim­ber­lin it goes with­out say­ing that any men­tion of these events, even on my C list site con­sti­tutes an INTEN­TIONAL INFLIC­TION OF EMO­TIONAL DIS­TRESS par­tic­u­larly if these state­ments are repeated on a Syn­di­cated Radio Talk heard on three AM sta­tions and nation­ally on FTR Radio.

At least I would be wor­ried about such a thing if I didn’t real­ize that under that broad def­i­n­i­tion of DEFAMA­TION, HARASS­MENT, STALK­ING, CON­SPIR­ACY, INVA­SION OF PRI­VACY AND INTEN­TIONAL INFLIC­TION OF EMO­TIONAL DIS­TRESS that Mr. Kim­ber­lin would be using to sue, Miley Cyrus would be in court after me in a second.

Fol­lowed closely by Barack Obama, Harry Reid, Mitt Rom­ney, Gabriel Gomez, Hillary Clin­ton, Scott Brown, Anthony Weiner, Nancy Pelosi, Richard Cohen, Andrew Sul­li­van, Matt Smith, Steven Mof­fat, Joe Scar­bor­ough and Arther S. Demoulas.

So I think, Mr. Kimberlin’s cur­rent suit not with­stand­ing I think we’ll take the risk and hit Pub­lish on this post and hope for the best con­fi­dent that the hun­dreds of peo­ple who have hit my tip jar this year would help defend if a suit took place against me.

Clos­ing thought: Am I the only per­son who read that quote above and thought: Who the hell decided: “Hey, you know who would be the most reli­able cost-​effective choice to inspect the equip­ment that our vol­un­teer army depends on the carry out their mis­sions? Mem­bers of the prison pop­u­la­tion!”? Even the far left foun­da­tions that financed Kim­ber­lin over the last few years could argue he was an EX con. Seri­ously com­pared to that deci­sion the Kim­ber­lin law­suit is almost rational.

I’d be really inter­ested to find out if this type of thing is still going on.

It’s been suggested that the Brett Kimberlin suit against bloggers is about silencing people or at least making them think twice concerning writing about him. Being a person of limited means totally dependent on my readers for my personal income that thought does weigh on my mind.

After all yesterday Patterico reported this concerning Brett Kimberlin suit vs bloggers:

A search of court records reveals the complaint is for “DEFAMATION, MALICIOUS PROSECUTION, HARASSMENT, STALKING, CONSPIRACY, INVASION OF PRIVACY AND INTENTIONAL INFLICTION OF EMOTIONAL DISTRESS.”

That sounds serious and other than the potential of discovery I doubt any of the people involved are happy about being sued.

So when I saw this link from Jeff Quinton yesterday and followed it to this post he wrote from last year that linked to this bit at Ace of Spades saying this:

While I, and Kimberlin’s other targets, are heartened by Congress’ letter to Eric Holder to look into the SWATting matter, what a reading of Citizen K demonstrates is that Congress itself needs to act in order to finally put an end to Brett Kimberlin’s ongoing digital (and real-life) terrorism.

Because not even prison stopped Brett Kimberlin’s crimes. While working as a prison clerk, Brett Kimberlin forged his own release order, forging all necessary signatures; he planned to release himself at 12:01 am on Memorial Day weekend. His plan is that no one would attempt to call the warden to confirm the release in the middle of the night on a holiday weekend; to make the process of confirming the strange midnight release, he also took the step of removing contact information from the office’s Rolodex. This scheme was ready to be executed, but for a lucky break for justice: Kimberlin was unexpectedly moved to another prison before Memorial Day, and his forged release form was now useless.

Another job he was assigned to in prison was doing quality control for military equipment. Rather than ensuring that equipment used by the men and women of the armed forces were in proper working order, Brett Kimberlin gave the equipment a positive rating — and then cut the wires himself.

This is not an allegation; this is an amusing anecdote he enjoys bragging about. From Citizen K, page 184, directly quoting Kimberlin from the many conversations the author had with him in preparing the book:

“I’d run the cables through quality control,” [Kimberlin] said. “I’d check them. I’d sign off on them. And then I’d cut some of the damn wires.”

I was very worried about what might happen to me for quoting it.

After all to Brett Kimberlin quoting his attempt at escape might constitute DEFAMATION as he didn’t actually execute this plan.

Kimberlin may consider it HARASSMENT to have my readers in 50 states & 170 countries reminded of his willful destruction of military equipment.

It’s not the first post I’ve written about Brett Kimberlin so this post might be construed as  STALKING.

I’m a known friend of Robert Stacy McCain, attended Blogbash and participated in “Everybody blog about Brett Kimberlin day.  Kimberlin will surely think that was proof of a CONSPIRACY.

While they appear on an A list blog (Ace’s site is in the top 25k worldwide & top 10k nationally) and in a book titled: Citizen K: The Deeply Weird American Journey of Brett Kimberlin by Mark Singer available at Amazon here  Kimberlin might consider it an INVASION OF PRIVACY to report on this events long forgotten..

Finally for Kimberlin it goes without saying that any mention of these events, even on my C list site constitutes an INTENTIONAL INFLICTION OF EMOTIONAL DISTRESS particularly if these statements are repeated on a Syndicated Radio Talk heard on three AM stations and nationally on FTR Radio.

At least I would be worried about such a thing if I didn’t realize that under that broad definition of DEFAMATION, HARASSMENT, STALKING, CONSPIRACY, INVASION OF PRIVACY AND INTENTIONAL INFLICTION OF EMOTIONAL DISTRESS that Mr. Kimberlin would be using to sue, Miley Cyrus would be in court after me in a second.

Followed closely by Barack Obama, Harry Reid, Mitt Romney, Gabriel Gomez, Hillary Clinton, Scott Brown,  Anthony Weiner, Nancy Pelosi, Richard Cohen, Andrew Sullivan, Matt Smith, Steven Moffat, Joe Scarborough and Arther S. Demoulas.

So I think, Mr. Kimberlin’s current suit not withstanding I think we’ll take the risk and hit Publish on this post and hope for the best confident that the hundreds of people who have hit my tip jar this year would help defend if a suit took place against me.

Closing thought:  Am I the only person who read that quote above and thought:  Who the hell decided: “Hey,  you know who would be the most reliable cost-effective choice to inspect the equipment that our volunteer army depends on the carry out their missions?  Members of the prison population!”?   Even the far left foundations that financed Kimberlin over the last few years could argue he was an EX con.  Seriously compared to that decision the Kimberlin lawsuit is almost rational.

I’d be really interested to find out if this type of thing is still going on.
