Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One of the running gags in the pointage, laughery, and mockification of Team Kimberlin’s lawfare has been the assumption that they have been buying their legal advice from the same Acme that sells all those wonderful gadgets to a certain coyote. Whether that true or not, it’s a plausible explanation for their mind-boggling misunderstand of legal principles. This post called Hoge Logic Explained first ran six years ago today and takes a poke at Bill Schmalfeldt’s inability to comprehend why send a message via Twitter is a violation of a no-contact order.

DBR201312061621ZYep. That’s it. And it’s the same logic that makes my AT&T ring my iPhone if you dial my number. It’s the same logic that makes the U. S. Postal Service deliver mail to my mailbox if you put my address on the envelope. It’s the same logic that makes the Internet route email to my account if you use my email address. It’s the same logic that makes …

There’s a reason why the Twitter account the Cabin Boy™ was using was referred to as Derp Brain Radio.

About Those Phone Records


The House Intelligence Committee released its report relating to the Whistleblower Hoax, and it included information derived from telephone records obtained by the Democrats on the committee. That prompted me to retweet a tweet by Adam Schiff with this comment—

The Democrats might want to take note of how the House Impeachment Hoax is being viewed in the Senate. In order to get a conviction, the Democrats must convince 2/3 of the Senate to find against the President. Their tactics aren’t playing well, especially with Republicans.

There’s a big difference between 1974 and 2019. During Watergate, there was overwhelming evidence that Richard Nixon had participated in the attempt to cover up an actual crime, the burglary of the Democrats’ office, and everyone, both Democrats and Republicans, agreed that a crime had been committed. Today, the Democrats have tried for over three years and still haven’t come up with any charge other than First Degree Orange Man Bad. The Russian Collusion Hoax backfired and exposed apparent criminal activity and malfeasance by law enforcement and intelligence agencies. The Ukrainian Hoax is backfiring, exposing apparent criminal activity and malfeasance by senior executive branch officials and diplomats. (Why, it’s almost enough to make one start to believe in some of those Deep State conspiracy theories!)

In 1974, Republican senators went to the White House and advised Richard Nixon to resign because of the overwhelming evidence against him. Today, Republican senators aren’t impressed by the underwhelming evidence presented thus far—and they and the public are questioning the fairness and honesty of the Democrats’ “investigation” in the House.If the Democrats are stupid enough to pass articles of impeachment against the President, they had better personally lawyer up because they likely will be called as fact witnesses by the Senate. I’ll bet that evidence such as Adam Schiff’s phone records will have been lawfully obtained and will form the basis of some of the questioning.

Stay tuned.

This statement is found at the end of the description of Protect Our Elections on the ABOUT page at protectourelections dot org—

… our campaign will support the passage of existing legislation to stop purging, caging, disenfranchisement of felons and much more that is needed to ensure the self-governance envisioned by our Founders in the U.S. Constitution.

Really? Who among the Founding Fathers thought that felons should be allowed to vote? What sort of warped view of History ,,, oh, yeah ,,, that’s it …

Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc. is run by Brett Kimberlin, who pleaded guilty to drug smuggling charges and was convicted of a list of crimes associated with the Speedway Bombings. He was paroled, but his parole was revoked for lying on a mortgage application  about his indebtedness to a bombing victim and for failure to make restitution to that victim. When he was paroled again in 2001, he managed to keep his nose clean, and he was released from supervision in 2006. His sentence expires in 2030.
