Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Perhaps the Gentle Reader who has been following Hogewash! for a few years may have noticed a certain similarity between fiction and the real world. This episode of Yours Truly, Johnny Atsign first ran three years ago today.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The crudity of Team Kimberlin’s lies is really quite pathetic. It’s almost like catching a kid with his hand in the cookie jar. This Prevarication Du Jour from five years ago today is an example of a whopper told by Mat Osborne (using the nom de cyber Xenophon) in a Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread post. All that was necessary to prove he was lying was to show copies of the two documents The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s filed with the court.

* * * * *

Xenophon has more to say about Monday’s hearing in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit over at Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it.).BU201401114aUh, huh.

Of course, they’re not. One is a black & white copy and the other is a color copy with a check marked added in the Restricted Delivery “Yes” box. The matching tracking numbers must be of no consequence.9871_a9871_b

* * * * *

It’s been suggested that Osborne lies so much because he’s trying to establish a Joe Isuzu defense to any defamation claim. If his reputation for lying becomes so bad that no one believes him, then what he says can’t hurt anyone else’s reputation.

Nah. Not even Matt Osborne is stupid enough to try that. At least, I don’t think so.

 

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Perhaps it’s because he has spent so much time trying to find ways to harass others, but for whatever reason, Bill Schmalfeldt seems to believe that because I have reported truthfully about his activities that I’m in the business of harassing him. In true Proverbs 28:11 fashion, he imagines that things that have nothing to do with him concern him. This post about An Email from three years ago today deals with one example of his overly vivid imagination.

* * * * *

I received this email on Thursday evening.

From: “bill@deepbrainradio.com” <bill@deepbrainradio.com>
Subject: An Explanation?
Date: January 14, 2016 at 9:26:59 PM CST
To: wjjhoge@himself.com

Mr. Hoge:

I’m wondering if you would oblige me with an explanation. This blank file is saved in your SCRIBD account. I have two questions which are in vital need of an answer from you.

[embedded images reproduced below]

1. Are you concerned about my mental well-being, or is this just another example of harassment from you?

2. Was this form filled out and mailed, or did you just leave it in your SCRIBD folder for shits and grins?

Given that I am the only person you know that lives in Wisconsin, at the moment, I am taking this as a serious threat that requires a serious response on my part. So, I am hoping you will take a moment to oblige me with an answer explaining the presence of this form on your SCRIBD account. If it has been filled in and sent to anyone, please let me know. If it has not been filled out and sent to anyone, then no harm no foul. But I need to know, sir, and I need to know very soon.

Regards,

Bill Schmalfeldt

Other than to note that I have extended family who live in the region between Chicago and Milwaukee, I have no comment. Some things simply aren’t any of Bill Schmalfeldt’s business.Screen Shot 2016-01-14 at 9.17.09 PMScreen Shot 2016-01-14 at 9.17.25 PM

There was much pointage, laughery, and mockification of the Cabin Boy™ in the comments to the original post. However, Schmalfeldt did learn something from the episode. The following July, he filed a petition with the Circuit Court for Carroll County, Maryland, to have me hauled in for an involuntary psych evaluation.

He filed it in response to my suing him, and of course, his petition was denied. He learned something, but what he learned was like so much of what he knows; it was wrong.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One of the recurring false narratives peddled by Brett Kimberlin is the fake news that he has no connection to Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread and that Matt Osborne and Bill Schmalfeldt are independent journalists (or real journalists, for that matter). He even tried to use that myth as a wedge to get the protective order granted in the Kimberlin v. Frey RICO Remnant LOLsuit modified. This post titled #BrettKimberlin Whines About Discovery from three years ago today dealt with that futile motion.

* * * * *

He’s upset because he can’t share confidential information received from Patrick Frey with Bill Schmalfeldt and Matt Osborne as he did with the sealeddiscovery in the 2012 Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. case. He’s filed this in the Kimberlin v. Frey RICO Remnant LOLsuit. The exhibits are really howlers.

Excuse me while I pop some more popcorn.

There’s a rule of management that says that first-rate bosses hire first-rate people and that second-rate bosses hire third-rate people. That may help explain how The Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin wound up with a fifth-rate staff.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One of the false narratives that The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin tried to spin into defamation claim against me and my codefendants in various LOLsuits was that we had accused him of being involved in various SWATtings. I’ve never said or written any such thing. I have discussed the circumstance surrounding several SWATting attacks, but I’ve never claimed that I knew who was guilty or that Brett Kimberlin had any connection to any of them. Indeed, I’ve stated that there doesn’t seem to be any evidence to prove that Kimberlin was involved. OTOH, I’ve also said that I understand why some people are suspicious. The TKPOTD from four years ago today is typical of my posts on that subject.

* * * * *

Charlie_Hebdo_Mohammed_Returns_.0Most likely, the Gentle Reader has heard about yesterday’s terrorist attack on the offices of Charlie Hebdo in Paris. The publication has targeted Islam with its rather coarse humor. For example the front-page cartoon on the left is captioned, “If Mohammed Returned.” The dialog translates, “I am The Prophet, fool!” and “Shut up, Infidel!”

After killing a dozen people and wounding several more, the gunmen were heard to say that they had avenged The Prophet.

If one reads the letter The Dread Prophetphile Kimberlin sent to law enforcement (see the exhibit attached here) in the context of his actions in outing the anonymous blogger “Aaron Worthing,” it almost seems as if TDPK was hoping that Aaron Walker might suffer the same fate as has befallen Charlie Hebdo. The fact that Aaron Walker was SWATted the same day that he beat TDPK in a court hearing over the unconstitutional gag order Kimberlin had as part of (later thrown out) peace order, …

One theme that keeps recurring in TDPK’s rants against Aaron Walker is his connection to the Everybody Draw Mohammed blog that posted all those “vile” depictions of Mohammed.

Here’s another interesting factoid: As of 11 pm last night, there was nothing on either the Justice Through Music Project or Velvet Revolution US websites about the Charlie Hebdo attack. There was nothing on Breitbart Unmasked either.

* * * * *

Let me add one more factiod that has come to light since that post was first published.

The person convicted of SWATting Stacy McCain was a moslem.

The Gentle Reader may draw or not draw what conclusion from that fact that he will.

Stacy McCain and The SPLC


My podcasting partner Stacy McCain has a post up at The Other McCain about a nice turn of events for the Southern Poverty Law Center and one of its lawyers. The SPLC is facing yet another lawsuit that seeks to hold it accountable for lying. As part of his post, Stacy briefly describes that organizations foolish attempt to paint him as a white supremacist.

Over the years, the SPLC’s smear against me has been endlessly recycled, despite its self-evident falsehood. Anyone who actually knows me knows that I am not a “white supremacist,” and if I were concealing a crypto-Nazi agenda, you might think there would be substantial evidence of this. The paucity of evidence — beyond guilt-by-association smears and what I’ve called the “Ransom Note Method” of assembling parts of disparate statements to create a sort of word-collage — is particularly remarkable, given that I’ve been an independent blogger for 11 years now. How can anyone believe that it is my desire to incite hatred or advocate racial oppression, when I’ve published so many thousands of posts here, with no editor to filter my entirely candid expressions, but never once written anything that would justify the “white supremacist” label?

Read the whole thing.

One rather dangerous trend over the past year or so has been the reliance on the SPLC by certain tech and social media companies for advice on determining who should be allowed on their platforms. We can hope that the truth will catch up to them before too much damage is done.

Oh, one more thing …

Writing this post reminded me of a failed attempt by a SJW to use the SPLC to go after a blogger. When Brett Kimberlin sued Aaron Walker, Ali Akbar, Stacy McCain, and me, he made the mistake of calling us as his witnesses. BTW, Eric Johnson, the judge presiding in the trial, is black.

Q: So do you know what the Southern Poverty Law Center is?

MR. OSTRONIC: Objection Your Honor.

THE COURT: What does the Southern Poverty Law Center have to do with this case?

MR. KIMBERLIN: Well Mr. McCain has —

THE COURT: The Southern Poverty Law Center, what does that have to do with this case?

MR. KIMBERLIN: Mr. McCain is considered a neo-confederate — is one —

MR. OSTRONIC: Objection, Your Honor.

THE COURT: Well —

MR. KIMBERLIN: And the Southern Poverty Law Center —

MR. OSTRONIC: Objection, Your Honor.

THE COURT: Hold on a second. Counsel I appreciate you objecting to my question but I’m not going to overrule myself. That’s not something I do. So what does the Southern Poverty Law Center have to do with this case? I’m not asking you about Mr. McCain, I’m asking you about why are you asking him about the Southern Poverty Law Center?

MR. KIMBERLIN: I’m asking him the Southern Poverty Law Center is the leading, one of the leading civil rights organizations in the —

THE COURT: I understand all of that but what does it have to do with this case?

MR. KIMBERLIN: Because —

THE COURT: And the claim that you are making against these gentlemen?

MR. KIMBERLIN: Because Southern Poverty Law Center regularly outs racists –

MR. OSTRONIC: Objection.

THE COURT: So what if they do. What does that have to do with this case? This case isn’t about racists or racism.

MR. KIMBERLIN: It’s about hate. It’s about hate. These people hate me and they do anything to destroy me.

THE COURT: Well but why are you asking this witness about the Southern Poverty Law Center? First of all he couldn’t testify as to anything they said or did because it wouldn’t be an exception to any hearsay rule. So you would never be able to get that in evidence anyway.

MR. KIMBERLIN: All right.

BY MR. KIMBERLIN:

Q: Mr.–

THE COURT: Your objection’s sustained.

BY MR. KIMBERLIN:

Q: Mr. McCain, do you have a blog?

The direct examination of the witness went downhill for the plaintiff from there.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Brett Kimberlin was tagged with the nickname “The Dread Pirate Kimberlin” back in 2012 when he created a pirate-themed website for his Bloggers Offense Fund. He’s since been referred to as The Dread Performer/Publisher/Prevaricator/Protestor/etc. Kimberlin, and after he failed to pay court sanctions and fees that he owes for the frivolous LOLsuits and appeals he’s waged, “Dread” became “Deadbeat.”

For the past year or so, the Dread Deadbeat [insert word beginning with P] Kimberlin appears to have been trying to keep a lower public profile since losing every one of the LOLsuits he filed between 2012 and 2016. He may have learned that pro se litigation is an ineffective method of intimidation against a defendant determined to stand up for his First Amendment rights.

Just because he’s been trying to fly below the radar doesn’t mean that he hasn’t been observed. Interesting things may unfold this year.

Meanwhile, here’s an image that has appeared from time to time at Hogewash! to illustrate the results of Team Kimberlin’s activities. It sums up TDPK’s career—

Stay tuned.
