Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Alinsky’s Rule 5 states

Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. There is no defense. It is almost impossible to counterattack ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, who then react to your advantage.

It has certainly been a useful weapon against Team Kimberlin, and one of the ways I’ve poked fun at them has been giving them nicknames. While the unconstitutional gag order was in effect against Aaron Walker, I called Kimberlin “Lord Voldemort (He Who Must Not Be Named).” When Kimberlin posted a pirate-themed website, he became “The Dread Pirate Kimberlin.” When he represented himself in his LOLsuits, he became “The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin.” At other times, other P-words—Perjurer, Performer, Publisher, etc.—were part of the title. When he defaulted on sanctions and other moneys owed, “Dread” became “Deadbeat.”

Other members of Team Kimberlin were assigned positions in the pirate crew. One of the Gentle Readers named Bill Schmalfeldt as the Cabin Boy, so he is now Cabin Boy Bill Schmalfedt™.

This post from nine years ago today was about Schmafledt calling the readers of this blog Old Biddies.

Cabin Boy Bill reads my blog.

RadioWMS ‏Old biddies nattering about nothing on the comment section of Hoge’s blog. A bunch of old women at a quilting bee, gossiping. Seriously.

Nice try, but that nickname won’t stick. I’m Jewish from the waist down.

Seven years ago, someone had had enough of Bill Schmalfeldt’s BS, and that person placed an order with a company in Europe that mails packages of manure. The Cabin Boy™ went ballistic, threatening the direst of dire direness to whoever placed the order. This Bonus Prevarication Du Jour from seven years ago today, pointed out that Schmalfeldt was simply wrong about the facts and the law related to the gift he received.

CBPR201411300042ZPerhaps Tupperware isn’t allowed, but zip-lock bags are apparently OK packaging for manure sent through the mail.

A simple bit of googling shows plenty of companies offering to sell various kinds of manure with shipping via U. S. Mail. It’s most commonly offered by businesses catering to mushroom growers who only need small quantities for use as fertilizer. BTW, horse manure seems to be preferred for mushrooms.

UPDATE—OK, let’s assume that the Cabin Boy™ files a complaint with the Postal Inspection Service. So what? The only result will be that there’s one more government office where eyes roll when they hear the name Schmalfeldt.

I will simply point out that Amazon sells manure, and many small quantity orders are delivered by the USPS.

The TKPOTD for six years ago today references some of the best legal writing I’ve ever enjoyed reading.

As I mentioned in yesterday’s summary, there isn’t much left of The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s RICO Madness LOLsuit that survives as the Kimberlin v. Frey RICO Remnant case. The one count remaining deals with his claim that Patrick Frey used his job as a prosecutor in the LA County District Attorney’s Office to deprive TDPK of his civil rights.

Patterico has answered TDPK’s complaint. For the most part he denied the allegations, generally with boilerplate denials, but there were a couple of paragraphs … well, see for yourself. Here are those paragraphs from the complaint, each followed by Frey’s answer.

While I was drinking my first cup of coffee this morning, I found a minor tempest in the Twitter teapot over Chris Cuomo’s outrage about being called “Fredo.”

Doesn’t Fredo have a viable claim for defamation for being lumped with Cuomo?
