Programming Announcement


Blognet will not be presented this evening. Sergeant Friday and Officer Smith are working in cooperation with Johnny Atsign on a matter that is scheduled broadcast beginning next Monday.

Tune next Friday at 6 pm for the next episode of Blogsmoke.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One of the recurring themes in The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s complaints and motions and such is that we <sarc>mean, nasty, evil RICO conspirators</sarc> have been spreading all our false narratives in order to drive traffic to our websites, improve our SEO rankings, etc.

Actually, I started blogging about Brett Kimberlin when I became aware of his anti-First-Amendment thuggery aimed at Aaron Walker and Stacy McCain. I intend to keep writing about him until he’s brought to justice.

But let’s get back to blog traffic. Hogewash! is a very minor league blog. It’s Alexa worldwide ranking (as of around 10 pm yesterday) was 619,019. To put that in perspective, my codefendants Stacy McCain (The Other McCain) and Michelle Malkin (Twitchy) are ranked 123,816 and 7,428, respectively.

To put it into perspective from the other direction, the top rated Kimberlin website is Breitbart Unmasked at 702,992. VelvetRevolution.US comes in at 3,594,532. The other Kimberlin sites that are ranked are Koch Watch (5,120,626), Occupy for Accountability (9,617,666), Justice Through Music Project (11,512,975), and Protect Our Elections (18,122,776). None of the other roughly 20 Kimberlin websites that I routinely monitor have enough traffic to be ranked.

You know, it just may be that a big part of Brett Kimberlin’s butthurt is jealousy that he can’t compete in the field of ideas with the likes of Michelle Maklin or Stacy McCain. Or even me.

Yours Truly, Johnny Atsign

JOHNNY: (Telephone Filter) I’m not here. You’ve got the answering machine.

I’ll be back around the beginning of February.

Blogsmoke


While I was reviewing paperwork for a couple of the bits of lawfare Team Bomber is waging, I noticed a certain synchronicity between the cases of The Bomber and The Grouch. That brought this episode from a year ago to mind …

MUSIC: UP AND UNDER—RECORDED—CUT 1

ANNOUNCER: (VOICE OVER MUSIC) Around Twitter Town and in the territory of the net—there’s just one way to handle the harassers and the stalkers—and that’s with an Internet Sheriff and the smell of “BLOGSMOKE”!

MUSIC: THEME HITS: FULL BROAD SWEEP AND UNDER—RECORDED—CUT 2
