Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

For a while, Bill Schmalfeldt was closely monitoring this website and often conducting searches to try to find something to use as the basis for a complaint. At the same time, I was loudly protesting that only rarely took a look at Hogewash!, so I began posting the times he connected to the site and the subjects of his searches, and the Cabin Boy™ tried to prove that the connection log data was false. That earned him this post about Watchful Nonsense which ran five years ago today.

* * * * *

The Cabin Boy™ keeps trying to evade detection as he lurks about here at Hogewash!, and he seems quite peeved when he’s noticed.MU201607201520ZHe still seems mathematically challenged too. Central Daylight Time is only 5 hours behind UTC, so the times he shows in red in his tweet are off by an hour.

Apple Watch Sleep AppOne interesting thing in his tweet is the image of that sleep app for an Apple Watch. I suppose that he’s trying to claim that the date shown in his tweet was taken using the Apple Watch shown on his wrist in a picture he posted earlier. If the Cabin Boy™ were to trade that watch back in on a Sport model, he’d have enough of a refund coming back that he could afford to pay the filing fee on LOLsuit VII: Degenerations and not have to pretend to be poor to get in forma pauperis status.

MM WatchBTW, if the Gentle Reader is in the market for a new watch, I can recommend the Mickey Mouse watch that I’ve been using recently. It’s not expensive, looks pretty good, and keeps excellent time. Click on the image on the left to get a good deal on one from Amazon.

And as Steve Jobs used to say, one more thing … I happened to be taking a coffee break while the Cabin Boy™ was downloading some of the stuff he ripped off from Hogewash! this morning. I watched him connect to the site, move around, and download things. You can see when he connected here.

UPDATE—Wow! Seventeen people have clicked on the watch link to Amazon so far. In answer to several emails–yes, I really do wear that Mickey Mouse watch.My Watch

BTW, the watch link to Amazon is still valid.

The Crab With The Neutron Heart

Heart of the CrabThis Hubble image peers deep into the core of the Crab Nebula, revealing its beating heart. At its center are the remnants of a supernova which sends out clock-like pulses of radiation and waves of charged particles. The neutron star at the very center of the Crab Nebula has about the same mass as the Sun, but it’s compressed into an incredibly dense sphere that is only a few miles across. Spinning 30 times a second, the neutron star ticks along, shooting out detectable beams of energy.

The TKPOTD for eight years ago today took a look at Team Kimberlin attempt to have an effective web presence.

IP address 184.171.169.170 hosts 32 domains.184_171_169_170

The Gentle Reader may draw his own conclusions as to what connections might exist between these domains and their various owners.

Oh, one more thing … the IP address 94.102.55.132 belongs to a server in The Netherlands that hosts a bunch of porn and other shady sites as well as these two domains:94_102_55_132

Hmmmmm.

The Justice Through Music Project web site and Breitbart Unmasked haven’t had any new material for over two years. Velvet Revolution US has had its name changed to Protect Our Elections/EMPR. Bits of the old VRUS site still lurk on the web, but much of the Protect Our Elections site has been memory-holed. The EuroMaidan PR site continues to limp along. AFAICT, the rest of the sites are defunct.

One of the ways that Brett Kimberlin’s campaign of pro se lawfare backfired was the problems he had with the discovery phase of the LOLsuits. The TKPOTD for seven years ago today dealt with some of the discovery questions he tried to evade.

* * * * *

Here are some other intriguing answers provided by The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin to my Requests for Admissions in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit.Admissions 40_43There’s computer forensic information linking TDPK to both the Breitbart Unmasked accounts. He was photographed outside of Bobby McKey’s on 14 March, 2013. There is eyewitness testimony placing him at CPAC this year.

Notice that he doesn’t deny any of these as he should if they weren’t true. Objecting because of irrelevance is a tacit admission that the statements are true.

It was fortunate for Kimberlin that the judge granted the defendants a direct verdict in our favor after Kimberlin rested his case. Otherwise, he would have had to deal with the defense we had prepared.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Today is the the ninth anniversary of the most popular post ever published at Hogewash!— Review: “Nothing Else” by Epoxy (Brett Kimberlin).

* * * * *

Back in 2002, Brett Kimberlin fronted a band named Epoxy and released a CD called Nothing Else. The story he spun promoting the album was that it contained songs that he had written while he was being held as a political prisoner in the federal prison system.

The band consisted of Brett Kimberlin on guitar and vocals, Wade Matthews on Bass, and Robbie White on Drums. The genre of the album is someplace between grunge and punk, neither of which are among my favorite musical forms.

Let me first comment on Mr. Kimberlin’s voice. I had heard his speaking voice in court, and I understand why some people refer to it as whinny. His singing voice reminds me of the silly voice that Weird Al uses on tracks such as Eat It. Mrs. Hoge, who listened through the CD with me, said, “Eddie Haskell.” On most of the tracks his voice was off key, usually flat.

Most of the songs could have been filler tracks on a generic grunge album. Some of the alienation in them seems to be more appropriate for a 17 year old, not someone 30 years older. Mr. Kimberlin was in his late 40s when the recording was made. However, three of the songs stood out. Vicegrip was actually interesting musically. Donuts had clever lyrics. It’s about lousy prison food and would probably get a nod of approval from G. Gordon Liddy.

Then there’s the last cut Keyhole. It was outstandingly bad. Mrs. Hoge and I met while we were in the music business, and during her career as a recording engineer, she recorded more gold and platinum records than I did. Her comment was, “If you’re gonna mike a guitar that close, you should use a better guitar and make sure it’s in tune. And get a better guitar player.”

While he didn’t do especially well with the acoustic guitar on Keyhole, Brett Kimberlin is actually a reasonably good guitarist. He probably couldn’t cut it in Nashville or LA, but could make a living in a minor market (such as Seattle) or playing the Holiday Inn circuit. Indeed, the world would be a better place if he did ignore the usual advice and give up his day job.

Nothing Else by Epoxy (Pollen Records, $16.04 from Amazon) is interesting because of who recorded it, but I can’t honestly recommend it for the musical experience it offers.

There are still some Amazon sellers offering “used” and “collectible” CDs.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

I’ve been following Brett Kimberlin’s attempt to have some of his Speedway Bombing convictions set aside. Yesterday, I posted the appeal brief he filed on Wednesday. He also filed a second request for the court to provide him with a freebie lawyer to handle oral argument in the case. Of course, the court can rule on just the written record and filings. Indeed, most appeals are considered without a hearing.

I found paragraph 13 interesting. If Kimberlin and his wife are getting by on only about $32 k a year, who’s paying for all those trips to Ukraine to produce music video—or producing the music videos for that matter?

Paragraph 14 begins, “An attorney would not only represent Appellant but would also effectively and ethically present the facts and the law to this Court.” It’s puzzling why Kimberlin is asking for an ethical presentation of the facts and law when that’s clearly against his interest. OTOH, he hasn’t had a very good record as a pro se litigator. We’ll see how the court rules on his motion.

Before and After

Here’s what the dominionvoting dot com website looked like this morning—Here’s what it looked like at 4:30 lm ET, after the Arizona Senate hearings had been in progress—Hmmmmm.

UPDATE—And they’re back at 6:45 pm ET—

However, the link to Legal Updates did not work at 6:55 pm but was working a few minutes later.

I’m Not Making This Up, You Know

The Daily Caller has a post up with this headline: State Department Asks UN To Send Experts To US To Help Them End ‘Systemic Racism’

Secretary of State Antony Blinken gave the United Nations a “formal, standing invitation” to send human rights experts to the U.S. in order to address “systemic racism” in a press release sent out Tuesday.

Systemic Racism is properly defined as the sort of racism which must exist when there is no evidence to support the existence of racism. It’s reasonable, I suppose, to look to the UN for expertise in “addressing” non-existent problems.

Meanwhile, the current President of the UN Human Rights Council is from Fiji, so it may be that her experience from a nation with a recent history of a voting system that heavily favored ethnic Fijians at the expense of the multi-ethnic minorities and of a government which suspended the constitution, arresting and detaining opponents, will be useful to the Xiden administration.
