On Decorum


I’ve been informed that Bill Schmalfeldt has made a claim that I have stated that avatars depicting relatives of members of Team Kimberlin are not permitted here at Hogewash!. I have no recollection of such a rule, and a search of the entire blog history using multiple keywords confirms my memory. Thus far, I have not exercised any editorial control over the avatars used by commenters. I find some avatars very inappropriate, but I have limited my censorship to the words or images contained within comments.

The Cabin Boy™ is threatening to allow publication of inappropriate avatars using Mrs. Hoge’s likeness. Since I’m not sure that the Gentle Readers grasp the level of filth that might be involved, I’ve decided to post this link to a sample of some of the milder images of my family members that I’ve received from Team Kimberlin over the past month. Even if the Cabin Boy™ limits himself to those sorts of images, he’ll still be digging himself a deeper hole.

I’ve been advised by several friends to ban commenters with inappropriate avatars. I’m not inclined to do so. I hope that I don’t have to change my mind.

UPDATE—I’ve been sent a link to a comment that has been posted on the Cabin Boy’s™ latest blog. The comment consists of a link to an image of the sort I don’t let through moderation or trash as soon as I find it.

It’s no surprise that Schmalfeldt is letting more of his depraved ugliness show.

UPDATE 2—I’m informed that the comment discussed above has been deleted. That was a wise choice.

Bonus Prevarication Du Jour


The Cabin Boy™ isn’t even a good concern troll.SRN201503112246ZAs Team Kimberlin has been pointing out, I am 67 years old. I’ve been enrolled in Medicare for over two years.MedicareI use one of the low end insurance plans available at work as a “Medigap” policy. However, because Mrs. Hoge is several years younger than I am, she has been separately insured since I turned 65. My employment (including the income stream it provides) has no effect on her health insurance.

Prevarication Du Jour


SRN201503071953ZThe team of physicians and other medical professionals treating Mrs. Hoge’s includes faculty members of a major university school of medicine. They are aware of, and in some cases are principal investigators of, various research programs, including some funded by the NIH. Additionally, there are several physicians in our extended families, some of whom practice oncology or related fields.

I’ll be blunt. Mrs. Hoge has a great deal of confidence in our family members and others currently engaged in the practice of medicine and their ability to make recommendations for treatment options. She has no confidence in an admittedly-demented former PR flack with a stale Rolodex of bureaucratic connections.

She has been making her treatment decision based on the advice of those professionals, and I believe that she has been choosing wisely.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Team Kimberlin’s abysmal record of predicting the outcomes of their lawfare is a wonderful source of pointing and laughter. Here are some more nonsense tweets from 2013.TK2013tweets_b The Cabin Boy’s™ 16 October tweet came the day that his motion for a modification of the first peace order (one that would have let him ignore it if he said that he was doing “journalism”) was denied. The tweet contains two errors. First, the state’s highest court is called the Court of Appeals. Second, instead of throwing out the peace order “TOMORROW or Friday,” the CoA threw out the Cabin Boy’s™ appeal the next week.

Very Ordinary Seaman Ferguson reacted to the news of the CoA denying Schmalfeldt’s appeal by opining that I was in bigger trouble because of the Kimberlin lawsuits. While they’ve been a pain in the neck (or a couple of feet lower), they really haven’t cause me any trouble. The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin gutted his own case through incompetence in the state lawsuit, and he isn’t performing any better in the RICO Madness.

The third tweet is typical of one of the Cabin Boy’s rants trying to justify harassment as activity protected by the First Amendment. No court has bought his line yet.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Yesterday’s TKPOD presented some golden oldie tweets from members of Team Kimberlin in which they made fools of themselves forecasting the results of their lawfare. Here are some more 2013 howlers from the Team.TK2013tweets_aThe first is Bill Schmalfeldt’s announcement that he would put up an obscene picture with my face photoshopped into it in retaliation for the photographer who owns the copyright to the headshot I use on the Hogewash! About page filing a DMCA takedown notice against the Cabin Boy’s™ infringing use of the image. That tweet was massively useful in convincing the powers-that-be that the Cabin Boy™ was likely to continue harassing me and that the first peace order should be extended.

The second is an exchange between Bunny Boy and Stacy McCain. Osborne was trying to float the idea that Stacy hit on Tetyana Kimberlin when a group of us had lunch together following one of the hearings about the dueling protective orders between her and her husband. He was also trying to keep the rumor that Mrs. Kimberlin is mentally ill alive. Both allegations are pure BS.

The third is the Cabin Boy’s™ wishful thinking concerning the outcome of the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit and/or the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness. So far, The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin is the only one who has lost anything, although he has not yet paid the sanction owed because of his attempt to diddle with discovery in the Walker, et al. suit. I still have my house, and Brett Kimberlin still lives in his mother’s basement. And I am not the one whose wife has left him.

Foolishness. Crassness. Ugliness. That’s Team Kimberlin. Oh, yeah, and stupidity.
