There’s this guy who keeps claiming that he’s the victim of stalking when he’s actually the stalker himself …



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”!


ANNOUNCER: “BLOGSMOKE” starring W. J. J. Hoge. The story of the trolling that moved into the young Internet—and the story of a man who moved against it. (MUSIC: OUT)

JOHN: I’m that man, John Hoge, Internet Sheriff—the first man they look for and the last they want to meet. It’s a chancy job—and it makes a man watchful … and a little lonely.


I’m Not Making This Up, You Know

I have filed a motion to modify and extend the current peace order in place against Bill Schmalfeldt. He has filed this opposition to my motion.

I do not plan to make any substantive public comment, even after I stop laughing, on this matter until after the court has ruled on my motion. I will probably publish my reply to The Dread Pro-Se Schmalfeldt’s opposition.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

On June 11, 1980 petitioner was sentenced to four years following his conviction in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas for conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute marijuana.

On November 3, 1980 petitioner received a consecutive 12 year sentence following his conviction in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana for possession and illegal use of Department of Defense insignia, illegal use of the Seal of the President of the United States, and impersonation of a federal officer.

On June 4, 1981 petitioner received a consecutive five year sentence following his conviction in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana for receipt of explosives by a convicted felon.

On December 30, 1981 petitioner received a 50-year concurrent sentence from the United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana for possession of an unregistered destructive device, unlawful manufacturing of a destructive device, malicious damage by means of explosives, and malicious damage by means of explosives involving personal injury. As set forth in his presentence report, during a six day period in September, 1978 eight bombs made of Tovex 200 dynamite were detonated in the Speedway, Indiana area. One bomb, placed in a gym bag in the Speedway High School parking lot, detonated on September 6, 1978, when it was picked up by Carl and Sandra DeLong after a high school football game. Sandra DeLong received permanent nerve damage caused by bomb fragments in her leg. Her husband Carl lost his right leg and two fingers. Carl DeLong received additional injuries to his inner ear, stomach, chest, neck and arm due to bomb fragments, and endured a series of operations. On February 23, 1983 Carl DeLong committed suicide at the age of 44.

On October 23, 1983 a Marion County, Indiana jury awarded $360,000 to Sandra DeLong for her injuries, and $1,250,000 for the wrongful death of Carl DeLong. The Indiana Court of Appeals reversed the wrongful death judgment, holding that Carl DeLong’s suicide was, as a matter of law, an intervening cause. The Supreme Court of Indiana reinstated the wrongful death judgment on June 13, 1994, finding that Carl DeLong’s death “was within the scope of harm intended by Kimberlin’s intentional criminal conduct.”

Sandra DeLong attempted to collect on her judgment by obtaining a writ of attachment against petitioner’s prison commissary account after a United States Probation Officer informed her that petitioner regularly transferred money to someone outside the prison. Petitioner promptly sued Mrs. DeLong, her lawyer, the probation officer, and various Bureau of Prisons and Department of Justice officials for money damages. Petitioner’s action was not successful. See Kimberlin v. U.S. Department of Justice, 788 F.2d 434 (7th Cir.1986).

Kimberlin v. Dewalt, 12 F.Supp.2d 487, 489-490 (D.Md. 1998).

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

This is the post that the Cabin Boy™ says provided him with the right to begin harassing me.

Originally posted on 3 September, 2012

More Lawfare Threats From Team Kimberlin

Some bozo calling himself the Liberal Grouch appears to be a member of Brett Kimberlin’s clown posse, and he’s threatening to sue Aaron Walker for defamation. He believes that Mr. Walker defamed him because he was accurately quoted in postings tweeted by Mr. Walker.

You can find the details of the exchange in question here, including tweets/posts that the Liberal Grouch deleted (perhaps in an attempt to erase evidence?).

Team Kimberlin is saying that they will start a “legal defense fund” for the Liberal Grouch if he sues Mr. Walker. They have the right idea because he will need a defense fund when the counterclaims come back from Aaron Walker.

Oh, and if Bill Schmalfeldt (if that’s his real name) is stupid enough to sue Aaron Walker, I’ll be first in line to make a substantial contribution to the Blogger Defense Team to help defray Mr. Walker’s legal expenses.

UPDATE—@LiberalGrouch tweets that I should read his side of the story. [Schmalfeldt has deleted the website.] I have. My comments above stand.

* * * * *

I should point out a few things about that post and the Cabin Boy’s™ poor recollection of it.

First, while I did refer to him as a member of Brett’s clown posse, I did not call him a “clown.” I referred to him as a “bozo.”

Second, Schmalfeldt was threatening to sue Aaron for accurately quoting him and OccupyRebellion with respect to the threat to rape either Lee Stranahan or his wife. The Cabin Boy had enough sense back then not to file a patently bogus lawsuit, an insight that has since slipped away from him.

Third, when the Cabin Boy wound up needing a legal fund to help support his lawfare, his buddies on Team Kimberlin haven’t been willing to put their money where their mouths were in 2012.

Stacy McCain describes Bill Schmalfeldt as a “deranged cyberstalker.” Ken White has called him a “demented freak.” I have come to believe those descriptions are too kind.

The Cabin Boy™ Gets Off

Judge Ellinghaus-Jones found that Bill Schmalfeldt did contact me in violation of the current peace order, but because she because she believed his story about his intent to offer help for Mrs. Hoge’s cancer treatment, she found him not guilty.

She also sternly warned him to never contact me again.

Aaron Walker was present and will have a more detailed analysis of the trial posted at Allergic to Bull later.

When last seen, the Cabin Boy™ was headed to the Commissioners’ Office to try to file some sort of criminal charge against me.

UPDATE—A few things did go well during the trial.

The Cabin Boy™ was not permitted to bring up non-related topics.

UPDATE 2—Judge Ellinghuas-Jones made no ruling as to the validity of the current peace order. She informed Schmalfeldt that, even if she agreed with him, the District Court cannot overturn an order of a higher court, in this case, the Circuit Court.

UPDATE 3—Aaron Walker’s post is up at Allergic to Bull.
