Another Forgery?


A reader sent me this link to a URL at the Wayback Machine that archives one of the Cabin Boy’s™ blog posts. That archived post shows you something I cannot because of the settlement agreement in last year’s copyright case prevents me from reproducing that blog post without Schmalfeldt’s permission. That something is a purported copy of the email the Cabin Boy sent me in violation of the current peace order. The text of the email appears to be correct, but the header appears to be forged. The header in the email the Cabin Boy has posted IDs the sender as “Gail Schmalfeldt.”

Here’s the header from the email that I received …Email_header… and here is the return path for the email.BS_email_returnpath
It seems fair to ask: why Schmalfeldt would bother to change the header? Given that he’s admitted—even bragged—about sending the email, what’s the point of the change? Sure, lying liars gotta lie, but you’d think he’d take a day off once in a while.

Oh, that prohibition on posting blog posts without permission works both ways, and posting without permission would be a breach of the settlement agreement. The agreement allows for relief for such a breach to be sought in the courts of the State of Maryland.

 

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.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Several weeks ago, I received a witness subpoena from the District Court of Maryland for a trial on 16 April, 2015. The case is Maryland v. Schmalfeldt. Today, I received this email.BogusNotice

The crudeness is amazing. Taking it from the top …

The court is the District Court of Maryland and it refers to itself that way in all communications.

hogewash@wjjhoge.com is not the email address the court has on file for me.

The actual Reply-to address linked to “State Court” is not to the District Court or any agency of the Maryland State Government.

A proper notice from the court would be styled “Subpoena” rather than “Notice to Appear,” and witness subpoenas are served either personally or via U. S. Mail.

Any such notice would include the year as part of the date and would reference the name of the case and its case number.

The Clerk of the Court is Mary Katherine Smith not “Don Gilbert.”

And finally, a real notice from the District Court of Maryland would not include a .zip file full of nasty JavaScript. (Don’t worry. The file was expanded and examined on a  Unix system that was offline and does not have Java installed.)

* * * * *

I am dealing with a bunch of amateurs.

UPDATE—Since I drafted this post, a reader has informed me that the Cabin Boy’s™ latest bit of talk show foolishness refers to the upcoming Hoge v. Schmalfeldt case. The criminal case this Thursday is Maryland v. Schmalfeldt. His civil suit again me is Schmalfeldt v. Hoge, et al, but nothing is scheduled in that case. There’s no active Hoge v. Schmalfeldt case on any Maryland state or federal court docket.

Perhaps The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt is preparing for the wrong court date.

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.

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.
