Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One of the more amusing things about watching Team Kimberlin is the harebrained schemes they come up with. A particular favorite of mine was one of Bill Schmalfeldt’s attempts to get the anonymous blogger “Paul Krendler” to sue him for copyright infringement. It appears that he thought that by plagiarizing some of Krendler’s work and copyrighting it, he would be able to get Krendler to begin legal action which would require Krendler to give his true name and address for service of process. However, Schmalfeldt also included work from the blog in his book, so I was able to go after him, and Paul Krendler was able to sit on the sidelines and laugh.

This post On Copyrights from five years ago today tells a bit of the story that shows that Schmalfeldt’s own tale proved that he wasn’t entitled to a copyright in the first place—or that the whole thing was a lie—or both.

* * * * *

I was rereading Confessions of an Undercover Internet Troll, and noticed something interesting about how the blog described in the book got started. The character known as Hoggy hired the author to write the blog, offering to pay him with a cut of money raised via Hoggy’s tip jar. If that’s true, then all of the TMZ blog posts contained in the book should be work-for-hire and, therefore, should belong to Hoggy.

Hmmmmm.

UPDATE—After my conversation with CreateSpace this morning, this is what searching for the Cabin Boy’s™ book turned up on Amazon at 12:15 ET this afternoon.Amazon_Confessions_20151124

Hmmmmm.

* * * * *

Nothing proceeded as the Cabin Boy™ had hallucinated.

What Norms and Which Institutions?


While Hillary Clinton eventually conceded the 2016 election to Donald Trump, she and her enablers/allies among the Democrats, Media, and Deep State spent four years peddling lies about Russia! Russia! Russia!, the Mueller investigation, an impeachment falsely accusing Trump of doing the sort of thing Biden actually did, and more.

It’s 2020, and Trump is using litigation and other processes prescribed by law to challenge apparent fraud in the election. A significant portion of politicians and the media say the President’s insistence that the game be played by The Rules is a threat to “our norms and institutions.”

Well, yes, it is.

It was Trump’s pledge to drain the swamp of a grifting Elite whose norms and institutions force one set of rules on the Deplorables but are not binding on themselves that led to his winning in 2016. I was Trumps modest success in beginning to drain the swamp that led a sufficiently large majority of voters to support him that the logistical planning for stealing the election was overwhelmed, causing the shutdown of vote counts and mad scramble for extra ballots in various places around the country.

America’s constitutional DNA assumes that men are fallible, so our system is rigged with checks and balances as a form of immune system. Thus far, we’ve been able to through off infections from various tyrannies. I hope we survive this time.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One of the striking things about Team Kimberlin is its member’s belief that they haven’t done anything wrong. Indeed, when steps have been taken to hold them accountable for their actions, they often haven’t claimed that they didn’t do what was alleged but that they were justified in doing it. This post about DABDA from seven years ago shows one example.

* * * * *

That’s a acronym for the Kübler-Ross model for the five stages of grief. Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, and Acceptance. Bill Schmalfeldt seems to be oscillating through the middle three. When he pulled the plug on political radio and stopped using @wjjhoge in his tweets, it looked as if he might be moving into the Depression stage, but some of his recent tweets appear to show that he has slipped backward.

I became aware of those tweets when I checked out this link that Stacy McCain sent.@rsmccain201311232037Z

Here’s what I found—DBR20131123So many lies, so little time … I’ll just hit the highlights.

1. I don’t want Bill Schmalfeldt to go to jail for over 350 years, but I do want him held accountable for his harassment. It’s a judge’s job to sort that out, not mine. He is the one who chose to violate the peace order 351 times, to engage in a course of harassing conduct intended to alarm or seriously annoy me, and to do it by means of electronic messages sent to me and received by me. I have merely shown what he has done to the proper authorities.

2/3. I do not recall ever leaving a comment on one of Bill Schmalfeldt’s blogs. Perhaps he is upset because so much of what he publishes makes into my Prevarication Du Jour feature. An easy way to avoid that is to stop lying. If he didn’t want me to know what he was blogging, he shouldn’t have sent me pingback comments or tweets announcing the posts.

4. What makes the Cabin Boy think that I’ve gone to any significant effort to search for his Twitter accounts? There are lots of folks who have been looking for information about him, and some of them share it with me. Of course, it’s trivially easy to do a search for “Schmalfeldt” on Twitter. That returns such interesting accounts as @SchmalfeldtTeam.

5. I prefer not to get into the Cabin Boy’s scatological fixation.

6. I have my reasons.

7. I don’t. However, on any day that I have received a tweet from Schmalfeldt, I have backed up his Twitter account because of his habit of deleting tweets or whole accounts. I’m not the only person who does such logging.

8. If the Cabin Boy believes that I am stalking him, then he probably thinks that Mrs. Walker was stalking Brett Kimberlin when she photographed him stalking her in the parking lot of the Howard County Courthouse. It’s as if he’s saying, “No fair! You’re documenting what I’ve done.”

There’s one other significant, I hope, thing I see in those tweets. They refer to me without using @wjjhoge. Perhaps this means that the Cabin Boy has finally figured out how to write about me without writing to me.

We will see.

* * * * *

The immediate result of the Cabin Boy’s™ behavior was the extension of the peace order. He eventually collected ten more issued in four more states. And he lost LOLsuits I through VIII. Those case are matters of public record.

He now complains that he has trouble passing background checks.

Well, duh.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


This is from an article at protectourelections dot org posted in 2017.I’ll zoom in on the copy to make it more easily read.Funny, but there haven’t been any comments from the Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin about electronic voting machines during the 2020 election cycle.

Hmmmmm.

“Shooting a Possible”


Target shooters refer to putting all 10 shots into the Ten-Ring of the bullseye as “shooting a Possible,” i.e,, achieving the best score one can.

There were 27 house seats that the “experts” rated as toss ups in the recent election. Republican won every one of them—not 10 out of 10, 27 out of 27. There was no blue wave, except in a handful of urban areas where logistical failures related to stocks of preprinted votes caused delays in ballot counting.

The Week Ahead


These days, I’m only cleared for local rumor, so I’m not sure about the reliability of the various hints, leaks, and innuendos swirling around the legal challenges to the questionable vote counts in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Nevada, and Arizona. However, I’m probably safe in predicting that while all those case won’t be settled this week, we will see actual hard news about them that will be interesting.

BTW, when the Biden family began working with Chinese investors, did anyone inform them of the Chinese curse that goes, “May you live in interesting times!”?

The Next 69 Days


There are 69 days remaining before the next presidential inauguration ceremony. Regardless of who takes the oath next January, there are certain things that I believe Donald Trump should do to close out this term.

First, he should work with Senator McConnell to fill any remaining vacancies in the federal judiciary.

Second, he should direct his appointees in the various agencies to complete the finalization of the rule making process on any pending elimination or improvement of federal regulations.

Third, he should declassify and publish by executive order all information and documents held by any federal government entity related to the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane investigation, the Mueller investigation, and Hunter Biden’s laptop.

Fourth, he should pardon Joe Biden for any criminal acts performed while Biden was Vice President, but not for any actions before or after his service in that office.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One thing that the members of Team Kimberlin have in common with most other Leftists is their inability to meme effectively. Bill Schmalfeldt, in particular, has been exceptionally incompetent, often resorting to crude pornographic images. Two of the homoerotic pictures he photoshopped my face into were so disgusting that they were placed under seal after being submitted as evidence at a peace order hearing. This post from six years ago today, On the Use of Underage Images, dealt with one of the Cabin Boy’s more spectacular blunders while using stolen images.

* * * * *

Last year, Bill Schmalfeldt photoshopped my face into a couple of pornographic homoerotic images which he published on the Internet. Those images and their publication formed part of the basis for the extension of the peace order against him that was issued last December.

One of the images of my face was lifted from a college year book picture. While the yearbook was published for my sophomore year, the picture may be a file photo that was actually been taken in autumn of 1965 during my freshman year. I turned 18 on 31 December, 1965.

Thus, it is possible that one of the pornographic images Schmalfeldt published contains a juvenile image of me.

* * * * *

IIRC, the jacket I’m wearing in the picture Schmalfeldt appropriated for didn’t fit me after my freshman year.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Of all the lame insults through my way by the members of Team Kimberlin, the one that struck me as the most childish was Bill Schmalfeldt’s Twitter impersonation account reference in this post from seven year ago titled #BillSchmalfeldt Takes a Break.

* * * * *

Or goes into hiding. Or something. PFB201311120200ZHe’s taken his tweets private. That leaves the serial harassment counter set at …S-O-T201311120131ZBTW, the 198 since noon last Friday is not a record. Stacy McCain got over 200 in a couple of days last Thanksgiving.

* * * * *

BTW, the Cabin Boy™ resumed tweeting at me, so when we went for a renewal of the peace order issued against him, we were able to show the judge almost 500 tweets that violated the terms of the court’s order. The judge extended the peace order for an additional six months. Schmalfeldt eventual wound up subject to a dozen restraining orders issued in five states. One was issued to protect a toddler.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One of the easiest targets for pointage, laughery, and mockification of Team Kimberlin has been their absurd claims about the law. Seven years ago today, Bill Schmalfeldt asked a stupid question looking for a citation to case law, and I was able to quickly respond, Oh, Look! Here’s One …

* * * * *

WMSBroad201311101815ZHoge v. Schmalfeldt, Md. 06-C-13-063359, cert. denied.

Heh.

Past Performance Does Not Guarantee Future Results, …


… but it may be the way to bet.

In 1960, the Democrats only needed to steal one state, Illinois, to defeat Nixon. The didn’t succeed in Florida in 2000 because of poor preparation. They were better prepared this year, but the need to steal in so many states may have overtaxed them.

There are several ways the presidential election can play out to the two possible endings. All of them are ugly. Other that those who might be a eyewitness to actual fraud or who might be directly involved in litigation, there’s not much the rest of us can do except calmly wait for the process to grind through.

Trump may yet win through recounts and litigation. If he does, we will have four more years of “resistance” from the Democrats, the media, big tech, and the Deep State.

Biden’s supporters may carry him over the finish line. If he wins, we will still face another four years of a disputed presidency, but this time, The Steal Dossier™ will have actual evidence in it.

In either case, past performance suggests that America will find a way to muddle through. That’s the way I’m betting.

Tactics v. Logistics


During my training as an Army officer, I was taught that amateurs study tactics but pros study logistics. This week, we’re seeing an example of such a logistical failure.

Why did the vote counts stop in so many states? I believe it’s because one side did not adequately prepare their mail-in and other non-standard votes and were overwhelmed by the election day voting by the other side. They had to pause the count in order either to verify that they had an adequate stock of favorable ballots or to manufacture enough to add to their existing stock.

The opposing side’s holding off its votes until election day in order to obscure the actual number of votes needed to manipulate the election appears to have been successful in exploiting that logistical failure, causing the panicked response of suspended vote counting and making fraud more easily exposed.

At least some things are proceeding as I have foreseen.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Early in The Saga of the Dread Deadbeat Pirate/Pro Se/Protector/Performer/Perjurer/Etc. Kimberlin’s, one of his PR Flacks tried to “warn” those of us who were writing about him of the consequences of our truthful reporting.OTOH, if Kimberlin hadn’t engaged in lawfare as a failed attempt at brass knuckles reputation management, he would have remained sufficiently unimportant to avoid public notice.

The Bidens and the Deep State


J. E. Dyer has a post over at Liberty Unyielding about the timeline of the FBI’s investigation of Hunter Biden’s laptop and how it interleaves with other events of the past couple of years. She points out that the Deep State and it’s allies have known about the Biden’s all along, whereas Trump and his supporters have been learning about the Biden’s and Ukraine and other hidden stories as various rocks have been turned over and tings have slithered out.

Since William Barr became Attorney General, the Trump administration has slowly been gaining on the Deep State’s knowledge advantage.  Ponder the point that the Bidens aren’t the only game in town – Clintons, Russiagate, Spygate; the Bidens are just one of many interlinked tragedies – and you begin to realize how very big and pervasive this thing is.  It’s a war nobody knew in advance how to fight, but that’s what it is: a war.

In a war, you pick your battles, you pick your terrain, and you shape the battlespace to drive toward your end-state.

Indictments and convictions will be a useful tool for some aspects of taking down the Deep State, as the ultimate and necessary goal.  But indictments and convictions affect individuals, not the Deep State infrastructure or its corporate will.  Breaking the Deep State’s will is what will be necessary to win the Republic back for the people.

Read the whole thing.

I was disappointed that only one DoJ lawyer involved in the warrant application fraud on the FISA court was taken down before the election, but rushed, half-baked cases that can’t result in guilty pleas or convictions aren’t what the public needs. Patient investigation followed by a well-aimed strike at the right moment is what I hope has been happening and will happen.

The Margin of Theft


I’ve been using the term Margin of Theft as it relates to elections. Let me be clear about what I mean. Consider the following election scenario.

After the legitimate votes have been countered, the results are as follows:

Candidate R 1,227,500
Candidate D 1,225,000
Candidate 3 50,000

It turns out that most of the vote counters are affiliated with the D party, so they begin to look for “missing” votes, and they “find” them in a county where the D:R voter registration is 10:1 and the usual vote favors the Ds by 5:1. The actual turnout in the county was a bit low (lack of enthusiasm for Candidate D), so they are able to “find” 13,000 votes without exceeding the total registration numbers for the county. When those votes are added, the result becomes

Candidate R 1,229,500
Candidate D 1,235,000
Candidate 3 51,000

That’s the sort of fraud that is possible when the vote between to top two candidates is only 0.2 percent apart. If the same 2,500,000 voter turnout had left larger margin, the search of “missing” votes would have had to expand beyond safe precincts into more competitive areas. A 2 percent spread in hard to overcome. A 4 percent spread is safer.

Go vote. One of the best things we can do to make sure the election is fair is to cast our own votes that can be legitimately counted rather than leave our unvoted registration as a vote to be “found.”
