Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One of Brett Kimberlin’s most stupid LOsuits was the case he filed against Mitch McConnell and Chuck Grassley seeking to have a U. S. District Court rule that because they weren’t taking up the nomination of Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court, the Senate had waived advice and consent to the nomination—and that Garland should be seated on the court. When the District Court dismissed the case for lack of subject matter jurisdiction (caused by The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s lack of standing to sue), Kimberlin appealed the dismissal to the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals. Because of some outright lies in TDPK’s appeal brief, I filed a motion to intervene in the appeal in order to correct the record before the court. Four years ago, I published a post titled Meanwhile, at the Fourth Circuit … which contained TDPK’s opposition to my motion to intervene. It may have contained more lies per square inch than any other court paper he filed in a civil case up to that point.

… The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin doesn’t think I should be allowed to intervene in his appeal of the dismissal of his Kimberlin v. McConnell, et al. LOLsuit.

Any comment from me on this matter will come through my lawyer.

The Fourth Circuit deferred ruling on my motion to intervene pending a review of the merits of the case. When the Court of Appeals upheld the District Court’s dismissal, my motion became moot.

UGC 1382About 250 million light-years away in a neighborhood of our universe that astronomers had considered quiet and unremarkable, scientists have uncovered an enormous, bizarre galaxy possibly formed from the parts of other galaxies. In optical light (left), UGC 1382 appears to be a simple elliptical galaxy, but spiral arms appeared when astronomers incorporated ultraviolet and deep optical data (middle). Combining that with a view of low-density hydrogen gas (shown in green at right), revealeded that UGC 1382 is gigantic.

It turns out that UGC 1382, a galaxy that had originally been thought to be old, small and typical is 10 times bigger than previously thought and, unlike most galaxies, its insides are younger than its outsides, almost as if it had been built using spare parts. It’s a rotating disk of low-density gas where stars don’t form quickly because the gas is so spread out. UGC 1382 is about 718,000 light-years across, more than seven times wider than the Milky Way, making it one of the three largest isolated disk galaxies ever discovered.

It’s not that the members of Team Kimberlin have no accomplishments to their credit. For example, they’ve been the subject of several Downfall parodies. This post from seven years ago today was about Another Downfall Parody.

UPDATE—Another anonymous coward from Team Kimberlin threatens legal action.TK20130712b

I’m glad to have the heads up. I’ll check to make sure my list of interrogatories, admissions sought, and document demands for defendant’s discovery are up to date. I should probably give some thought to possible counterclaims.

UPDATE 2—Those Gentle Readers who have not been closely following the Cabin Boy Bill subplot of The Sage of The Dread Pirate Kimberlin may wish to read this post by Stacy McCain for a summary of the backstory.

How has that brass knuckles reputation management worked out for you guys?

Blowing a Bubble in Space


U Camelopardalis (aka U Cam) is a star nearing the end of its life. When stars run low on fuel for their normal fusion reactions, they become unstable. Every few thousand years, U Cam coughs out an almost spherical shell of gas as helium from its core begins to fuse. The gas ejected in the star’s latest eruption can be seen in this picture as a faint bubble around the star.

U Cam is an example of a carbon star. That’s a rare type of star with an atmosphere that contains more carbon than oxygen. Because of relatively low surface gravity, as much as half of the total mass of a carbon star may we swept away by powerful stellar winds. U Cam is located in the constellation of Camelopardalis (The Giraffe) which is near the North Celestial Pole, U Cam is much smaller than it appears in this image taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. The star would easily fit within a single pixel in the image. However, it is bright enough to saturate the camera’s photosensors which causes the star look much larger.

The shell of gas, both much larger and much fainter than its parent star, is visible in the picture. Gas clouds from expolsions are often quite irregular and unstable, but the shell of gas ejected from U Cam is almost perfectly spherical.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


I mentioned in yesterday’s TKPOTD that the evidence I’ve seen leads me to believe that Brett Kimberlin is the person behind the Breitbart Unmasked website and that he has posted content to it and the (at)BreitbartUnmask Twitter account. The TKPOTD from seven years ago today also explored The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin’s connection to BU.

* * * * *

Well, Brett Kimberlin seems to have let his Breitbart Unmasked persona out of its cage. (n.b.: It really doesn’t matter whether the writing is done by Kimberlin or a ghostwriter hireling.) Yesterday, he put up the first post since late April at Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it.), an attempt to slime Stacy McCain and his family. Stacy will no doubt respond with his usual series of tweets asking about the little girl in Indiana whose grandmother was murdered.

Also, during a period of about a half-hour yesterday evening, I received 26 rather bizarre tweets from the @BreitbartUnmask account. I get the general message that Brett Kimberlin isn’t pleased with me or my coverage of his activities. Tough. Back on 1 November, 2012, I blogged that by threatening to SWAT me and then not having the guts to follow through, Team Kimberlin convinced me of their cowardice. I wrote:

As Harry Truman once remarked, “I’ve been shot at by experts.” I’ve dealt with my share of tough guys and tough guy wannabes during my life. They’ve been to jail, and I haven’t. I look forward to seeing TDPK and his thugs and enablers brought to justice, and I intend to have some small part in that. I may have just become his worst nightmare.

Brett Kimberlin can expect that his every move is now being scrutinized. He can also expect to read about his activities here on this blog. He can expect to have the dealings of his “charities” gone over with a fine-toothed comb. I may not be 100% effective, but I am pigheaded enough to keep going. Eventually, justice will win.

Stay tuned.

I’m not done with him yet.

No, That’s Not the Way the System Works


While I’m drinking my second cup of coffee this morning, I’m seeing comments on various social media suggesting that one of the things that should happen if blue cities #DefundthePolice is the abolition of security details for elected officials. I doubt that would happen. Indeed, I expect those would be among the very last police details to be cut.

Whether at a local or national level, the whole purpose of being in the Inner Party is to exercise power, and that power is exercised via the Outer Party bureaucracy to keep the Proles in line. The Inner Party will always try to have sufficient resources in place to protect itself and enforce its will, so there will always be a place in the Outer Party for those enforcers. Department A4 of the Gestapo was Protective Services. The KGB had its Close Protective Services directorate.

Outer Party resources may be shifted about, and that may reduce policing of certain activities among the Proles, but the Inner Party will always try to deploy sufficient resources to protect its interests.

The History of the Universe, Part One


The Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) was a NASA Explorer mission that made fundamental measurements of cosmology—the study of the properties of our universe as a whole.

The structure of the universe evolved from the Big Bang, as represented by WMAP’s “baby picture” of the Cosmic Microwave Background (the afterglow of the Big Bang), through the clumping and ignition of matter, and continuing up to the present. This video condenses that almost 14 billion year history into 45 seconds.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Here’s a post from seven years ago today about my picking up a new follower on Twitter. Based on evidence that has come to light since 2013, I believe that Follower No. 394 was Brett Kimberlin.

* * * * *

Heh.BU_Follows_me

And I’m Follower No. 21 over at RadioWMS.

UPDATE—Or I was until Cabin Boy Bill blocked me.

UPDATE 2—The Sore Loserman seems to think that the peace order prohibits me from following his blog, or something like that. Of course, he has the right to block me, but I have the right to read what he publishes. Believe it or not, he is an occasional source of useful information.

* * * * *

I discussed one of the bits of evidence that leads me to believe that the Brett Kimberlin was the operator of the (at)BrietbartUnmask account a few weeks ago at the end of this post.

Of course, Kimberlin has denied any connection with Breitbart Unmasked. He’s also denied (under oath) that he ever had his parole revoked. The Gentle Reader may form his own opinion concerning Kimberlin’s credibility.

Past Performance Is No Guarantee Of Future Results …


… but given the world’s experience with every other marxist revolution, we might want to be careful about what changes we make in American society and how we make them.No Cambodians, Zimbabweans, or Venezuelans were available for comment as this post was written. However, several Czechs and Poles noted their experience was that making political systems more like our has reduced oppression in their countries.

After losing LOLsuit VIII: Avoiding Contact, Bill Schmalfeldt managed to stay out of court for around a couple of years, but has still had delusions of adequacy in 2016. This Legal LULZ Du Jour is from four years ago today.

MU201607092257ZJust so. The Cabin Boy™ rages on.

He schemes and plots but without any understanding of the law or the Rules of Civil Procedure or the Rules of Evidence. Indeed, if he understood the Rules of Evidence, he would know that spousal privilege would prevent calling someone’s wife to testify about communications with her husband and with what she had seen him do or not do.

He who knows when he can fight and when he cannot will be victorious.

The Cabin Boy™ has made noises about a copyright LOLsuit against his most recent former employer over a DMCA takedown of material he had posted on his latest YouTube channel.

BTW, as of 10 pm ET last night, he still only had 9 subscribers.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The ostensible reason for Bill Schmalfeldt’s recent “retirement” is a flare up of his Parkinson’s disease symptoms. Many were amazed by the apparent remission he enjoyed over the past couple of years as he bounced from one broadcasting gig to another. The Cabin Boy’s™ Symptoms were the subject of this post which appeared three years ago today. It appeared at the end a long series of posts that day debunking claims he was making during LOLsuit VIII: Avoiding Contact.

* * * * *

Bill Schmalfeldt may have taken my suggestion that he thoroughly search this blog for references to him as a child pornographer or as someone faking Parkinson’s disease because he logged in to Hogewash! and conducted these searched this evening—

6:51:45 pm ET search=parkinson’s
6:56:27 pm ET search=child
6:58:39 pm ET search=pornography

So, how did that work out for him? I can’t say for sure, but at 7:08 pm this evening, I received a tweet from him with a dead link to one of his old websites and a copy of one of the pornographic images he created of me that was part of the evidence supporting Judge Stansfield’s finding that the Cabin Boy™ was likely to continue to harass me and that the first peace order should be extended.

The Gentle Reader should make up his own mind about what all that means.

UPDATE—So the Cabin Boy™ thinks I’ve lied?The Cabin Boy™ says I lied about his putting my face into pornographic images, specifically, an image involving anal intercourse. He may recognize the image on the left. It was stored on his Patriot-Ombudsman website as Screen-Shot-2013-03-24-at-5.07.52-PM_clipped_rev_1-2.33.37.png. (Since it was stolen from a video by Peter Ingemi, the Cabin Boy™ has no rights to the image.) It was this image that he photoshopped on the body of a man on the receiving in of anal sex. I have the original post as he published it in the vault, but I won’t post it here because I intend to keep my end of the 2014 Settlement Agreement. Also, this isn’t a porn site, so I do not choose to have such filth on this blog. However, if the Cabin Boy™ wants the image included in a court filing, I will do that if necessary. But he may want to remember Judge Kramer’s reaction to the other homoerotic image he posted with my face photoshopped in when it was entered into evidence in Schmalfeldt v. Hoge, et al.

Murum aries attigit.

UPDATE 2—The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt may also remember tweeting this just before he posted that homoerotic image—

UPDATE 3—I’ll take this tweet as permission to reproduce the Cabin Boy’s™ original blog post and/or the homoerotic image here at Hogewash!However, I stand by my decision not to reproduce Schmalfeldt’s filth on this blog. For now, the most I will do is show the small section of the original image at right. The area behind my face has been blurred to remove pornographic content.

If the Cabin Boy™ wants to press the issue in court, I’m willing to produce all the evidence I have.

UPDATE 4—I grabbed the tweet in UPDATE 3 out of my web browser immediately after seeing this tweet pop up in Tweet Deck—I normally save tweets as rendered by a browser because they tend to be more compact when included in a blog post. Note that the timestamp on the this tweet is 3:10 am, 9 July. My Tweet Deck program uses UTC which is +4 hours from ET. The tweet in UPDATE 3 is timestamped one minute later.

It appears that in the interval between when I noticed the new tweet in Tweet Deck and the time I opened my browser, the Cabin Boy™ deleted his original tweet and retweeted it without the words, “Post the image …”

* * * * *

BTW, it appears that Schmalfeldt is no more successful building an audience on YouTube than he was trying to gin up believable claims during his LOLsuits. As of 8:30 ET yesterday evening, he hadn’t picked up any additional subscribers since last Thursday.

Quote of the Day


The mutability of the past is the central tenet of Ingsoc. Past events, it is argued, have no objective existence, but survive only in written records and in human memories. The past is whatever the records and the memories agree upon. And since the Party is in full control of all records and in equally full control of the minds of its members, it follows that the past is whatever the Party chooses to make it.
