Patterico's Pontifications


Neal Rauhauser Is Present to Watch Brett Kimberlin Beaten in Court Yet Again

Aaron Worthing won the appeal of Brett Kimberlin’s peace order against him, but that was a foregone conclusion. Congratulations to him and everything, I guess, but it’s like congratulating the sun for rising again.

Here are the parts that, while also unsurprising, are well worth noting:

1) Kimberlin thinks it’s harassment to defend yourself in one of his frivolous legal actions:

Of course the highlight of the hearing came when my attorney sought to cross examine Kimberlin. Of course he gave Kimberlin an epic cross-examination back on April 11, but today he was more focused but equally effective. Interestingly, he didn’t go through the entirety of Kimberlin’s criminal history, or indeed any of it. But he did ask Kimberlin about when I was SWATted, about a week and a half ago and Kimberlin went into a rage at the suggestion. He called it a “despicable” question, falsely claiming that I and others had blamed him for it “without a shred of evidence” (in fact when I wrote about the SWATting, and talked about it on the radio, I was careful not to blame him because I can’t prove he had anything to do with it). But he was absolutely furious at even the simple question of whether or not he was involved in it, shaking his finger at my attorney in rage and saying to him, “You’re harassing me” by even asking the question. That is, a lawyer asking a person a question in court is harassment, according to Kimberlin.


2) Neal Rauhauser is with Brett Kimberlin all the way, baby. All. The. Way.

And there is one other thing to note. Neal Rauhauser was there again, and seen exchanging documents with Kimberlin, further verifying their connection.

But those facts were not just true today. Please note this tidbit from a commenter:

I happened to see the Norton v Kimberlin and Kimberlin v Norton event.

Kimberlin claimed that “they” were harassing him when Norton’s attorney asked him if he was convicted for perjury.

Rauhauser was there, too.

P.S. Kimberlin said it was harassment when Seth Allen filed a responsive pleading in the lawsuit Kimberlin filed against Seth Allen.

So there is a clear pattern here: Kimberlin initiates a legal action, generally frivolous, and if the opposing party has the nerve to defend himself, Kimberlin calls it harassment.

And has Neal Rauhauser helping him out.

P.P.S. If you think this is the end of all this, you’re mistaken:

I am extraordinarily grateful to @OccupyRebellion for these tweets. They are money in Aaron’s pocket. Money he needs, because as @OccupyRebellion makes quite clear, the lawfare did not end today. Why, it’s just beginning! And they’re damned proud of it!

So go to Aaron’s site and hit one of the donation buttons.

Do it for @OccupyRebellion.

Or do it for the “so-called First Amendment.”

I just did. You should too.

FLASHBACK: If only someone had talked about Neal Rauhauser’s connection to Brett Kimberlin a long time ago!

Oh, wait! Someone did — one year ago today:

Wall Street Journal Advises Romney to Get in Gear

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:31 am

Their jumping off point is justifiable upset over Romney’s mixed messages concerning whether the mandate is a tax:

Perhaps Mr. Romney is slowly figuring this out, because in a July 4 interview he stated himself that the penalty now is a “tax” after all. But he offered no elaboration, and so the campaign looks confused in addition to being politically dumb.

This latest mistake is of a piece with the campaign’s insular staff and strategy that are slowly squandering an historic opportunity. Mr. Obama is being hurt by an economic recovery that is weakening for the third time in three years. But Mr. Romney hasn’t been able to take advantage, and if anything he is losing ground.

The Romney campaign thinks it can play it safe and coast to the White House by saying the economy stinks and it’s Mr. Obama’s fault. We’re on its email list and the main daily message from the campaign is that “Obama isn’t working.” Thanks, guys, but Americans already know that. What they want to hear from the challenger is some understanding of why the President’s policies aren’t working and how Mr. Romney’s policies will do better.

They’re right. Romney can’t “coast” in this election. Time to get with it.
