Bonus Prevarication Du Jour


BotM201503282223ZReally? I’m unsure how that is consistent with this tweet from 7 February, 2015, or with paragraph 56 of the Schmalfeldt v. Johnson, et al. LOLsuit he filed in U. S. District Court.

The Cabin Boy™ has told so many stories now that he can’t keep track of them, but that’s OK. Plenty of other people have. There’s an extensive record of what he’s said in public fora. If he every gets a day in court, his own words will be the most effective witness against him.

Murum aries attigit.

Prevarication Du Jour


BotM201503281437ZThe Cabin Boy™ has been ranting for a couple of months about finding fingerprint or DNA on the letter I received to prove that he didn’t send it. I’ve noted in the past that the letter had been handled by multiple people and that the chance of finding any useful evidence of that sort is very low.

OTOH, knowing the make, model, and serial number of the printer that printed the letter and the envelope could be very helpful. At present, the original letter and envelope are in the hands of the Circuit Court, so the chain of custody is unbroken.

Stay tuned.

Funny You Should Ask


The last three intriguing episodes of Yours Truly, Johnny Atsign have dealt with several potentially interrelated episodes of harassment wherein either The Grouch or The Bomber had contacted a third party in order to harass someone who was or wound up as one of Johnny’s clients. None of the episode provide any information about the contents of the harassing messages. Yet, today, Hogewash! received this comment to yesterday’s episode.YTJA CommentWhy would “Keep Wondering” ask such a question unless he knew that the contents of one or more of the messages directed the recipient(s) attention to “public information”?

Pretend for a moment that the fictional Johnny Atsign episodes are, like Blognet, based on true incidents but with the some of the names changed to protect the innocent. That knowledge of the contents of at least one of the messages would limit the range of possible identities of “Keep Wondering” to one of the senders or one of the recipients. Since the recipients know why they turned the messages over to law enforcement agencies, they probably have a good idea of why the messages might be illegal. That leaves a very small population of suspects.

Still, the question deserves an answer. There are several—depending on who received which message.

Under Maryland law, it is a crime to harass a government employee at work.

Under federal law, it is a serious felony to harass a federal employee or a contractor assisting a federal employee at work.

Under Maryland law, it is a crime to make a false report to a public official which causes an investigation to occur.

Under federal law, it is a crime to make a false statement to a federal official.

Someone is playing Go Fish when the real game is Fizzbin.

AGENT: (Telephone Filter) Mr. Atsign, this is Special Agent Wilson following up on that harassment matter.

JOHNNY: Hi. What can I help you with? And call me “Johnny.”

AGENT: (Telephone Filter) I’ve been working with my counterpart back East, and we need a few more details. I thought you might have something in a related case that would provide a lead.

JOHNNY: Are you talking about the connection to The Bomber or The Grouch?

AGENT: (Telephone Filter) The Bomber. He’s suing our agency.

JOHNNY: That doesn’t make sense, but it has to be true. No one could make up a story like that.

In Re RICO Madness


The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has filed a letter asking for permission to file a motion for reconsideration of Judge Hazel’s dismissal of the Ku Klux Klan Act claims in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness.

Also, Aaron Walker, Lee Stranahan, Stacy McCain, and I have jointly filed a letter asking for permission to file a motion for sanctions against Kimberlin.

Our letter speaks for itself, and I do not plan to make any substantive public comments on the matters it covers until after the court has ruled on granting permission to file.
