It appears that The
Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin has given the keys to Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread back to Bill Schmalfeldt. One of the Cabin Boy’s™ first stories after his return is titled Will Anticipated Stone Indictment Also Ensnare Stranahan? (No, I won’t link to it.)
It’s not surprising that Schmalfeldt would put up a piece recycling a substantial number of his previous lies about Lee Stranahan. He’s been attacking Lee ever since Lee organized the Everyone Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day blogburst back in May, 2012. Lee recently has been doing some reporting on the connections between Brett Kimberlin and a Ukrainian/American operative for the Democratic Party, so I’d expect so pushback from Team Kimberlin.
The I’m Not Making This Up, You Know post from a year ago today dealt with a previous attempt by Schmalfeldt to smear Lee.

In yet another futile attempt to imitate an investigative journalist, the Cabin Boy™ has published a bogus exposé about Lee Stranahan over at
Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread. The thesis of his article is that Lee sought derogatory information concerning Dan Backer from Brett Kimberlin. What actually appears to have happened is that Kimberlin sent Lee an unsolicited email and that Lee exploited that contact to get information.
A bit of background: Lee is an real investigative reporter who has written about Brett Kimberlin and was the blogger who suggested the Everyone Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day blogburst in 2012. Dan is a lawyer whose practice involves election campaign law. Both Dan and Lee have been my codefendants in multiple LOLsuits filed by the
Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin, and Kimberlin still owes sanctions to Dan and me. At the time Kimberlin contacted Lee, one of those LOLsuits was in process.
Now, back to our story …
On the morning of 3 March, 2014, Lee tweeted this—
Later that day, there was an exchange of emails between Brett Kimberlin and Lee related to Dan. Schmalfeldt’s fantasy tries to use that set of emails to show that Lee sought information from TDPK to use against Dan. However, that isn’t what the evidence shows.
It’s obvious that Kimberlin is the source of the emails. Only he and Lee are parties to them, and it’s safe to bet that Lee didn’t give them to the Cabin Boy™. Apparently sensing an opportunity to sow discord between two of the codefendants in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness LOLsuit, TDPK initiated the chain of emails several hours after Lee’s tweet. Lee’s replies to Kimberlin unsolicited contact are non-committal, but they result in TDPK finally sending Lee a dump of opposition research targeted at Dan and his firm. Some of that information turned out to be related to a story that Lee was working at the time, and he used it. And that, Gentle Reader, is how investigative reporting is often done.
Two things stand out in the Cabin Boy’s™ article. The first is his envy of Lee Stranahan’s success as a working journalist. The second is Brett Kimberlin’s rising level of frustration that he cannot attract positive coverage and that his attempts to smear his enemies keep failing.
Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread about Lee Stranahan is one more failure.
UPDATE—While checking my Twitter timeline during lunch, I noticed that this post has produced a bit of a Feldtdown in which the Cabin Boy™ demonstrates his complete misunderstanding of what the “evidence” he included in his
Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread post actually shows.
No wonder he’s never been able to keep a real reporting job for long.
It must really frustrate TDPK if
Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread as run by the Cabin Boy™ is the only outlet that he can convince to take an interest in his false narratives.
UPDATE 2—As his Feldtdown continues, the Cabin Boy™ wonders why I haven’t offered any evidence to refute what he posted at
Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread. The reason is quite simple—no additional evidence is required to deal with his self-refuting article.
It’s a good thing that I restocked during lunch.

Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread never lets facts get in the way of spinning a narrative.
BTW, I’ll bet the answer to the question posed in the title of the Cabin Boy’s™ recent post about Lee is “No.”
