One of the things that is almost axiomatic is the law moves at its own pace.

In one respect this is a good thing.  It’s very dangerous to rush to judgement before the facts are in, but in an age of rapid response, lack of patience and instant gratification the slow crawl of the law is not enough for many.

Since my living is made in the rapid response world I’m required to give more attention to other stories but there are a few stories of the law’s slow march that are worth highlighting

1.  Kimberlin vs the World:

Ken: Got you again you bastard:

A fish called Wanda 1988

The Brett Kimberlin suits vs Stacy McCain, Aaron Walker, W Hoge continues on, William Hoge has of course been all over it.an example

It seems most of The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s legal effort these days has to do with finding the identity of Kimberlin Unmasked. This is something that he has been pursuing for months. When he cross examined me during the Hoge v. Kimberlin peace order trial in May, he asked me if I knew the identity of Kimberlin Unmasked, and I truthfully replied that I did not. Again, during the recent hearing on extension of the Hoge v. Schmalfeldt peace order, TDPK had Bill Schmalfeldt ask me if I knew the identity of Kimberlin Unmasked, and, again, I answered truthfully that I did not. Almost all of Kimberlin’s activity in the state Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. suit has centered on identifying Kimberlin Unmasked.

I’ve seen all sorts of wacko rumors circulated by Team Kimberlin that Kimberlin Unmasked is Aaron Walker or Patrick Frey or Dustyn Hughes or Jeff Dunetz or Lynn Thomas or Kender MacGowan or Lee Stranahan or Dan Collins. However, I’ve seen no evidence proving that any of those individuals is Kimberlin Unmasked.

I’d ask myself if I was Kimberlin Unmasked but given how well Sicilians keep secrets and our notorious lapses of memory in court under oath I don’t think I could rely on the answer.

Meanwhile on the case itself moves on:

Get out your popcorn again, because this will be fun.  On Monday, December 16, I filed a memorandum with the court in support of Kimberlin Unmasked’s attempt to remain anonymous.  In it I argued that Brett Kimberlin is a public figure who must offer evidence that he is not a pedophile or misogynist, and has offered absolutely no evidence of harassment.  I also argued that if he is given this information about Kimberlin Unmasked, that he can be expected to stalk and oppress that person or persons, given all that he has done to me in the past two years.  I specifically said that 1) he cost my wife and I our jobs, 2) tried to frame me for a crime, and 4) personally stalked my wife and I.

So yesterday, as Rand Paul was celebrating Festivus and airing his grievances on Twitter, Kimberlin aired his own by filling a series of motions in state court.  And Brett Kimberlin’s response?  Well, shut up, he explains.  He tries to get the whole thing struck and me sanctioned for filing it.  Yes, really.

He links the motions along with a video response:

Meanwhile the court case continues on. How will it finally end. I think it’s going to end like this scene from a Fish called Wanda with Kimberlin in the Kevin Kline Role:

The real question is Kimberlin’s goal. If the plan is to take up as much time belonging to good bloggers that could be spent on other things then it’s working perfectly. Of course he might just be a violent criminal psychopathic nut with a following of crazy fans who gets off on this kind of thing, but there is no reason those two things have to be mutually exclusive.

If you want to know where this story came from Walker’s link that explains it all is here.

2.  The Amazing disappearing Rauhauser

Woman:  Oh my husband where have you been.  Why do you not come home to see the children?

Zorro  Amnesty for Zorro 1959

Stacy McCain notes that Neil Rauhauser has moved on from stalking/trolling Stacy’s military son’s facebook page to playing duck doge and hide from his estranged wife

The latest weird turn in Rauhauser’s weird career is that his ex-wife evidently showed up on Twitter, complaining that Neal still owes some $47,000 in child support for the two children — now ages 17 and 13 — of their marriage, which ended a decade ago. Now, this caveat is necessary: I cannot verify that the Twitter account is his ex-wife’s nor, if it is indeed her, can I vouch for the accuracy of all she alleges.

Daily Kos reports that Neil Rauhauser has been acting like, well Rauhauser

Neal is probably not too upset people know he’s a deadbeat dad or has a history of domestic abuse and child abduction and endangerment.  He’s probably annoyed people know Mr Stranded Wind ratified a mineral lease to authorize fracking on his family’s property in North Dakota. But Neal is definitely pissed that Nancy verified he doesn’t have Aspergers as he’s claimed for years. Far from it, Nancy has documents showing her ex-husband was clinically diagnosed with Narcissistic Personality Disorder overlaid with Reactive Affective Disorder. Neal Rauhauser is a certified Sociopath.

So in the two weeks she’s been on Twitter, Neal has begun harassing Nancy, her children and her relatives with phone calls and text messages. He also did what he calls a SWAT lite and called Child Protective Services on his ex-wife. Other strange things have been happening recently too: someone attempted to hack Nancy’s eBay account, someone attempted to use her daughter’s social security number and someone accessed her son’s school records and found out where they live.

and the family is taking this stuff seriously:

Rauhauser has a warrant for his arrest, there are more coming. He is implicated in alleged SWATtings and false reports. He is armed and he is dangerous. The Security team will see that the restraining order is enforced. Any visits by Neal will result in his arrest. Should any harm come to Nancy or the Rauhauser children, the consequences will be severe. Due to Neal’s reputation, Nancy is also in touch with the FBI and Homeland Security so you can be sure the situation in real life and online is being monitored.

Talk about a war on women! Rauhauser’s reaction…

well life is full of coincidences. No matter how long he ducks the warrants remain out there. Sooner or later he will make a mistake, or a process-server will pose as an ally at an event or an actual ally will get pissed enough to give him up to his wife.

3. Whatever Happened to Lunenburg…

The question is, should this indictment have ever been brought? Which office do I go to to get my reputation back? Who will reimburse my company for the economic jail it has been in for two and a half years?

Raymond Donovan May 25th 1987

It’s been several weeks since the worm turned in Lunenburg MA where the town and football team went from national racist pariahs to the victims of the latest race hoax. The latest result in Google news search is this indignant column in the Worcester Telegram from Dianne Williamson who is outraged…:

If the graffiti was painted because authorities hadn’t acted on complaints that her son was being harassed, shame on her. Because rather than draw attention to bigotry, the incident created a forum for racists and deniers to slink out of the woodwork.

…because the latest developments it validates those who don’t share her worldview and are thus by definition “racists and deniers” Amazing how “denying” something that is false in the worldview of those to who the United States is perpetually Mississippi in 1955 on race, but the most interesting development in terms of the law is this:

Now it could be that we are awaiting police testing of the spray cans, it could be there are other developments that we aren’t aware of or it could mean that the Police Just didn’t want this to overshadow Christmas & New Years in the town.

But sooner or later something is going to happen and the law will move.  The only question left is this:  When it does it will be reported?  Or with the congressional midterms and Obamacare will the reputation of Lunenburg and their team quietly fall down the memory hole and folks who point out their innocent be labeled as “deniers”?

4.  …and Paris Tennessee

A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.

Mark Twain

Around the same time that Lunenburg was staying home on Thanksgiving the Huffington Post wrote about Joe Williams:

The owner of a Tennessee health food store was beaten unconscious by three men in an alleged anti-gay hate crime.

As local ABC affiliate WBBJ TV is reporting, the owner of Healthy Thyme in Paris, Tenn. was also robbed of $1,200, while the suspects wrote a “three-letter homophobic slur” across his forehead in permanent marker during the alleged attack, which took place Nov. 20.

The victim, identified by Fox 17 as 32-year-old Joe Williams, told the Paris Post-Intelligencer that a man had come into the shop earlier that day and asked him about his sexuality, before responding that he could not shop there if he was gay. He also said that he was called derogatory names during the beating, which took place as he was in the process of closing up the business for the night.

The advocate linked the story as did GLAAD in its daily round up Dianne Williamson didn’t manage to get around to it, likely because as a Massachusetts liberal she fixed it’s axiomatic that people in a red state like Tennessee  spend their days beating up gay heath food store owners so it was hardly worth mentioning.

It seems that was a fortunate choice on her part.

A man who told police he had been robbed and beaten at a Paris health food store a few days before Thanksgiving was arrested after he allegedly withheld information about the incident and has now been charged with filing a false report.

Joe Williams, 32, of 803 E. Wood St. was arrested Friday afternoon after turning himself in at the Henry County jail.

Stacy McCain makes the obvious point:

The apparent fakery by Williams probably won’t be reported in bold headlines by some outlets that reported the story originally.

Well the Paris Post Intelligencer with an Alexa Ranking of 3,244,731 did as did Stacy whose site is ranked  did and they have an Alexa Ranking as of Sunday 12-28 of  web site did Stacy McCain (ranked 70,567) and the daily caller (ranked 1,981).

But GLADD’s rank is millions ahead of he Paris paper (ranked 98,768 worldwide) the Advocate does much better than Stacy McCain (ranked 21,667) and while the Daily caller rank in the top 2000 worldwide is impressive the Huffington Post’s rank is in the top 100 worldwide (#66 worldwide & 20th in the US).

So while, thanks to Duck Dynasty GLAAD has had a bad month the revelation that this is yet another hate crime hoax is unlikely to be reported as widely as the base story to make GLAAD’s month worse.

And it’s just as well, we don’t want to empower those “deniers” right Dianne?

By Linda Szugyi

I’ve never done the New Year’s resolution thing.

The way I always figured, why start the new year by setting yourself up for failure?  I mean, if you haven’t reached a particular goal in your life already, how is a new digit going to make it happen?  I can’t even remember to write the new year on my checks until April or so.  It is highly doubtful that I will have remembered to keep a resolution in the meantime.

Besides, resolutions are just one more way to stress ourselves out.  If there is one thing we all need less of, it is stress.  Perhaps the best resolution one could ever make would be to worry less.  But how, exactly, does a person worry less when he has just given himself a new resolution to worry about?  Now there’s some pretty inescapable logic right there.

Still.  The ‘worry less’ resolution is mercifully non-quantifiable.  Without a clear-cut division between success (size 8!) and failure (size 14?!?), failure isn’t even an option.

So there you go.  The fail-proof resolution for 2014:  worry less.  Easier said than done, but at least you can’t fail.  I think I’ve even figured out a shortcut to the goal:  ignore the experts.

Experts are a major source of worry in today’s society.  They specialize in every conceivable topic, so let’s pick just one to discuss:  food.

Experts told us to stop eating fat.  Then they told us it’s okay to eat fat as long as it’s the good fat.  They explained how animal fat is the bad fat, until they decided that trans fats are the bad fat.  Then they explained that sugar is the real bad guy.  And also the processed foods.  Unless it is milk, and then unprocessed is very, very bad.  Speaking of milk, aren’t the processed ones suspect unless the word “organic” is prominently displayed, and the price jacked up accordingly?  And wasn’t soy milk is a better alternative, until it wasn’t?

They told us that salt is really bad, until it wasn’t anymore.  They warned us against caffeine almost a whole century ago.  For the sake of variety, they took a rest from finger-wagging about fat, sugar, and salt, and explained how wheat is bad, especially the part called gluten.  Some of them focused on artificial colors and high fructose corn syrup.  For some experts, meat is the culprit.

Basically, unless you are eating an apple or a carrot grown in your own back yard, somebody out there disapproves.  No wonder we are all stressed out.

The technological advances of our society are wonderful, but they have given us the impression that life is too complex to figure out on our own.  Modern society has decided that only the experts know best.

But that’s not true.  Even experts lack key information, and risk is an inherent part of life.  Think about Christopher Columbus.  He may have been a great sailor and explorer, but it’s not like he had a GPS when he set out across the Atlantic.

We don’t need GPS precision for every aspect of life.  Instead, we need to rely on our common sense and natural skepticism.  We need to trust our own instincts instead of the latest expert opinion.  Our society’s quest for protection against unknown dangers–its obsession with safety–is part and parcel of the madness that elected a planet-healing president.  Unfortunately, even conservatives fall prey to this mentality.

So let’s all do our part to bring rugged individualism back to our culture, by ignoring the experts and worrying less.  Do what your own conscience–guided by God if you are so inclined–tells you.  And have a great 2014.

happy new year

I remember the first Scott Brown campaign.

The crowds were incredible, the excitement was contagious, people in Massachusetts really believed it was a sign that the direction that had led us to ruin for decades might actually be ending.

And the Grass Roots that had been silent for years, the people who were sick of political correctness, of government intrusion, of high taxes and who say Mr. Brown as the best and last chance to stop Obamacare disaster that they (unlike the MSM) clearly saw before them, in its tracks emerged from the shadows and worked, oh HOW they worked. The number of man hours, the phone calls, the stand out were incredible.

They gave the one item that is more valuable than money for a campaign, The one thing you can never make more of…TIME!

After the victory he was hailed at CPAC he was celebrated, local bars were naming drinks after him and fear gripped the left in Massachusetts to the point where millions were spent to defend seats in congress in 2010 simply to hold the line and while they managed to do this, it cost them in many close races nationwide and lead to the GOP house majority that remains to this day.

Brown was a pragmatic senator on many issues and the media cheered him on celebrating him and suggesting that his only chance for re-election was to move left, unfortunately Brown agreed, time and time again he sided with Democrats and ran from the Tea Party that worked so hard to elect him.

When the Democrats choose the extreme ultra left candidate Elizabeth “You didn’t build that” Warren as their candidate national Democrats were orgasmic, gone was their complements of Scott Brown & the fawning media coverage. Instead they elevated Warren and dumped millions into sending Senator Brown home.

Alas with the left solidly against him, Brown still veered left and like Mitt Romney he kept his distance from the Tea Party and the base even as he needed ever single vote to keep his seat.

It didn’t save Mitt & it didn’t save Brown.

2014 is just a few days away and with Obamacare crashing and burning the best chance they have to save the senate for Barack Obama is to exacerbate the conflicts between the Tea Party & the Establishment GOP.

And lo and behold suddenly MSNBC and Morning Joe are all abuzz about Senator Brown selling his house in Massachusetts and moving to NH to run for the Senate Seat currently occupied by Jeanne Shaheen.

Already the backlash over Brown’s positions has begun, The Nashua protests will just be the beginning and the media will do their best to fan the flames in order to rip the partnership that made the GOP a majority party in congress asunder and rest assured it will only get worse as time goes on.

Maybe Senator Brown thinks he’s the best chance to beat Senator Shaheen, after all the contrast between the 60th vote for & the 41st vote against Obamacare is an appealing political juxtaposition but that will be small comfort if it rips the GOP apart in the one state in New England where they still have an organization that can complete on the state and national level.

In a piece at Fox Senator Brown wrote this:

Democrats would love for nothing more than for us to spend precious time and resources fighting amongst ourselves on unrelated issues. Indeed, this remains their best hope for avoiding a total wipeout at the ballot box next year.

If we aren’t able to come together and stand united around our core principles, the future of both our country and our political party is bleak.

That’s true, but I can’t think of anything that is more likely to cause that to happen in New Hampshire than Senator Brown running in the state for Senate.  The left did their best to use Senator Brown once before against the party and his own interests and it ended in defeat and division in the Massachusetts GOP just as it had a chance to begin their climb out of an impossible hole.  If he is truly concerned with party unity, if he wants to be sure the GOP has a united message so they win local races in the state as well as that vulnerable senate seat, the best thing he can do is stay out of the primary and endorse whoever wins to the hilt.

It will be quite Ironic if three years after Scott Brown was the spark that torched their citadel in 2010 he becomes the Molotov Cocktail to burn down the GOP chances to win the Senate and keep a hold in NH.

Update: The subject of the grass roots and marketing came up on this week’s show a key except:

Whose going to man the offices, who’s going to bang on the doors, make phone calls do those things and volunteer in waves, and when that first wave of volunteer gets tired you got to have a 2nd wave & a third wave and the first wave is rejuvenated and those people do tend to be on the ah not on the extremes but the more dedicated people, then perhaps from a republican point of view more conservative.

Paid consultants are all about their pay, it’s the volunteers that are willing to work without pay that make the difference and they come from the base.
