Now that the frivolous peace order and false criminal charge related to harassing a minor child have both been disposed of, I want to encourage those who wrote and/or published defamatory articles or comments about me to retract their statements and apologize for them.
We had a bit of concern trolling in the comment section over the last couple of days with lost of advice on how I should deal with various legal matters. I believe I will stick with the advice I’ve been given by real world lawyers.
OTOH, I suppose I can let the Gentle Readers (and the Team Kimberlin lurkers) in on the basic principle of my strategy: winning.
Meanwhile, everything is pro … oh, you know the rest.
Back in March, Breitbart Unmasked published several post that made multiple false statements about me, including that I had engaged in stalking and suborned perjury. An honest publication would retract such false statement and publish a correction.
OTOH, this involves Breitbart Unmasked, so I have no expectation of honest, fair dealing from that website or any of the people associated with it. Still, it would be wise for a retraction, correction, and apology for the false information published about me last March to appear on that site—especially now that three judges have ruled that I didn’t engage in stalking, and two have ruled that I didn’t engage in harassment. It should happen soon. Very soon.
Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.
Breitbart Unmasked has published an article with Matt Osborne’s byline that states that I committed perjury during the Kimberlin peace order hearing last Friday. The facts debunking that claim have been laid out here and here. There’s one more bit of information that the Gentle Reader should know.
On 29 August, 2013, Breitbart Unmasked published an article with a byline of “Xenophon” titled LEE STRANAHAN AND AARON WALKER SMEAR A TEENAGER’S FAMILY AND TRY TO SNUFF OUT HER CAREER. Osborne has admitted that he used that byline at BU during that period. That article contains the following block quote from Twitter:Given that the “proof” of my alleged perjury was the “fact” that I has sent the “Brett Kimberlin uses news story …” tweet that Lee Stranahan actually sent and given that Osborne included the original proper version in his earlier BU article, it is reasonable to conclude that his erroneous reporting is the result of a reckless disregard for the truth.
I demand retraction of and apology for all false statements published by Breitbart Unmasked concerning me and any matters related to the Kimberlin peace order.
UPDATE—The 29 August, 2013, Breitbart Unmasked article has been taken down from the BU site, but it is available on the Wayback Machine. Additionally, the entire BU site has been routinely backed up offline, and I have the original html code for the post in hand.
I see that Matt Osborne doubled down on his defamatory post over the weekend and tripled down on it yesterday.
I believe that he as made a very unwise choice.
Mrs. Hoge received a couple of interesting emails today. Someone is trying to use her identity to sign up for a Disqus account in order to post comments at Breitbart Unmasked.Mrs. Hoge also received this email related to Bill Schmalfeldt’s new SRN.Of course, she hasn’t tried to comment at BU, and she has no interest in SRN. (She prefers to listen to WYPR out of Baltimore for NPR talk and jazz and WETA-FM from Washington for classical music.)
I can understand why a member of Team Kimberlin would rather have someone else’s identity instead of his own. OTOH, I am not amused by someone trying to steal my wife’s identity.
