Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin has alway had an uphill struggle with judges, as can be seen in this TKPOTD from seven years ago today.

PreparationH96ctJudge Grimm does not seem inclined to provide any temporary relief for The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s butthurt. He has denied TDPK’s request for file a sanctions motion against the lawyer representing Twitchy. However, Amazon offers this remedy—

He’s sold a lot of popcorn too.

A Ring Galaxy

A Cosmic Hit and RunThe odd galaxy next to the bright foreground star in this picture is the Vela ring galaxy, visible as a bright core surrounded by a blue halo. As the name suggests, this ring galaxy is located in the southern constellation of Vela (The Sails). It is notable for its compact core and large circular belt of gas and stars.

It is thought that a ring galaxy like this is created when a small galaxy passes through the center of a larger one, triggering a shock wave that spreads outward. That forces gas to the galaxy’s periphery where it begins to collapse and form new stars. The Vela ring galaxy is unusual in that it actually exhibits at least two rings, suggesting that its collision was not a recent one.

This is kinda like watching a cat trying to cover things up on a marble floor.The Gentle Reader can check the previous PDJ and verify that I did not write that I have not received the Cabin Boy’s™ address. I made no statement as to whether he had yet provided his correct address.

For the record, my google-fu was sufficient to determine that he had given a false address to the court, to locate the extended-stay hotel he was probably moving into, and to use the hotel’s website to determine the correct address—and I did so within minutes of returning from the Post Office after the automated kiosk I use for late night mailings gagged on the address he had given. I was able to verify the address I found online when the Cabin Boy™ finally sent me some mail with a correct return address.

Gentle Reader, who has lied?

I’m not sure which is worse—his reading comprehension or his story telling.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Four year ago today, I ran an episode of Yours Truly, Johnny Atsign that really seemed to get under Bill Schmalfeldt’s skin. I published this Prevarication Du Jour in response to his Twitter tirade.

* * * * *

For some reason, the Cabin Boy™ is tweeting that he gave his new address to the Circuit Court during the hearing on 5 May. He gave an address, but it was not correct. According to the notes taken by the clerk, he gave the wrong street name and the wrong street number. My notes agree with the clerk’s, and I have used that address for service of court papers. So has the court. It will be interesting to see if the USPS can suss out how to deliver that mail to the Cabin Boy™.

Also, my notes from the hearing do not record the Cabin Boy™ giving the name of the extended-stay hotel that is located at the return address on the mail he sent me last week. He did tell the court on the day of the hearing that he was “in transit” and staying in a Motel 6, but he did not divulge even the type of accommodations to which he intended to move.

Schmalfeldt may want to dust off that letter he sent to Judge Grimm in 2014.Of course, the Cabin Boy’s™ recent activities may mean that he’ll have to modify his pitch somewhat, but given his behavior over the last couple of weeks, the judge might buy the bit about dementia.

UPDATE—Before the Cabin Boy™ spools up for one of his famous Feltdowns on the Twitterz, he should go to the Maryland Judiciary Case Search website and check the address the court has on file for him.

Today is the sixth anniversary of my first Qapla’ post.

The Kimberlin v. Hoge peace order petition was denied.

Brett Kimberlin was not allowed to testify. He was also not allowed to represent his daughter.

UPDATE—Aaron Walker was present during this morning’s trial and has his report of it here.

* * * * *

Kimberlin wasn’t allowed to testify because at the time Maryland was the last remaining state to ban testimony by convicted perjurers. The state senator representing the district in which Kimberlin lives subsequently introduced legislation repealing the ban. After it passed, Kimberlin discovered that he could no longer avoid being cross examined in court.

Updating An Earlier Post

On Monday, I put up a post about getting The Right Answer from the Wrong Argument. I received this comment in a email from one of the Gentle Readers named Mary Pat Campbell, and I believe it’s worth sharing:

I am happy that you address what Stacy wrote. I have the same perspective as you, being a run-of-the-mill Catholic. My own degrees are in math & physics, and I loved quantum mechanics… and some asked me how I could reconcile that with being a believing Catholic. My response: who am I to tell God how to order the universe?

We were given reason to figure out how God has ordered creation, not to make aesthetic critiques of those choices.

Separately, I do find it grimly amusing that those who take the (translated) words of Genesis literally usually don’t do the same thing when considering Jesus saying “This is my body”.

Ms. Campbell and I most likely have different understandings of what Jesus meant when He said, “This is my body,” but I bet we both are thankful that God is doing something wonderful for us in ways we can’t completely understand.

More Reporting on Rebekah Jones

Charles C. W. Cooke has a good summary post up at NRO that explains why the conspiracy theories being spun by Rebekah Jones are bunk. More people are starting to catch on to her scam.

Eventually, though, her luck is going to run out. And when it does, no amount of flailing or distraction is going to prevent the bills from coming due.

Yep. It may take a while, but everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

Team Kimberlin’s pro se litigation has been full of amazingly stupid court filings. The one featured in this I’m Not Making This Up, You Know from six years ago was one of the most foolish.

The Cabin Boy™ says that he put this in the mail to the Circuit Court today. I hope so.

The embedded material is the document The Dreaded Pro-Se Schmalfeldt posted on Scribd. I don’t plan to make any public comment on it until I finish laughing.

The highlighting is in Schmalfeldt’s original post on Scribd. The Gentle Reader can see why The Dreaded Pro-Se Schmalfeldt was renamed The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt.
