Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Team Kimberlin’s lawfare campaigns were generally waged on two front, one associated with The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin, the other with The Dreadful Pro-Se Bill Schmalfeldt. The TKPOTD from five years ago today was a summary of Schmalfeldt’s failures as of that date.

* * * * *

The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt has spent quite a bit of time explaining to his reader about how he was going to drag various out-of-state defendants into court, first in Maryland and now in Wisconsin. How’s that worked out for him?

Not so well.

He wasn’t able to drag Stacy McCain, Nancy Gilly, Paul Lemmen, Bettina Haper, Chris Heather, Kyle Kieran, Kimberly Dykes, Stephen Shekio, or Paul Krendler into Maryland for LOLsuit I. He couldn’t even get me, a Maryland resident, into court for that one because he threw in the towel after only two days.

I was able to get him into court and and an alternate dispute resolution meeting for LOLsuit II. That case settled with my giving him nothing of the $3,000,000 counterclaim he filed and his agreeing to take down his material that infringed my copyrights.

He didn’t get to drag Eric Johnson, Paul Krendler, or Howard Earl into Maryland for LOLsuit III after the case was dismissed because he filed it in the wrong court.

He didn’t get to drag the same three out-of-state defendants into Maryland for LOLsuit IV because he failed to establish personal jurisdiction over them. That resulted in the case being thrown out against me because he had brought it in the wrong court again.

He didn’t get to drag Patrick Grady, Scott Hinckley, David Edgren, Roy Schmalfeldt, “Grace,” “Ashterah,” or Howard Earl into Maryland with LOLsuit V. He ran away rather than press his case.

Now, he thinks he’s going to drag folks to Wisconsin for LOLsuit VI. I seriously doubt that Patrick Grady, Eric Johnson, Sarah Palmer, Dianna Deely, the William G. Irwin Charitable Foundation, Nancy Gilly, Techno Jinxx, MJ, Roy Schmalfeldt, Vigilant Vindex, Pablo, Neal. N. Bob, The Other Latin F*cker, Perry Mason, Howard Earl, A.B., Tao, Jane, Grace, Dr_Mike, Katie Scarlet, Rob Crawford, the 13th Duke of Wymborne, Kobyashi [sic] Maru, AJ Fornicarious Hoc, JeffM, Gus Bailey, or Colonel Victor Trollpoker will ever have to see the inside of a Wisconsin courtroom on the Cabin Boy’s™ terms.

popcorn4bkOTOH, the Cabin Boy’s™ presence has been required by Scott Hinckley in Massachusetts and Lynn Thomas in Illinois, and his failures to appear resulted in courts ruling against him. He’s making noises about going to North Carolina next week, but I wouldn’t bet on it. Cowardly cowards gotta cower.

Meanwhile, he has his pro se fantasies to indulge. It will be interesting to see how he reacts when [redacted].

Stay tuned.

* * * * *

The Cabin Boy™ also filed LOLsuits VII and VIII.

In VII he was unable to drag a defendant from Illinois into an Illinois courtroom—although he did have to drag himself to a court imposed conference with a lawyer appointed by the court. After a quick review the lawyer filed to dismiss that case.

In LOLsuit VIII the Cabin Boy was unable to drag me and my out-of-state codefendant to South Carolina when that case was dismissed for improper venue.

All in all, a perfect record—he’s batting 0.000.

Other than his host of failed LOLsuits, the single most ineffective aspect of Brett Kimberlin’s campaign of brass knuckles reputation management has probably been the Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Boy Unread website. The TKPOTD for seven years ago today dealt with one opportunity Matt Osborne’s inept story telling provided for some pointage, laughery, and mockification.

* * * * *

Xenophon asks a silly and misleading question over at Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it).BU20140114b

This is one of those “have you stopped beating your wife” questions. The defendants in the frivolous and vexatious Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. lawsuit won’t be abandoning any so-called “blog court” strategy because we have never employed one. What we have done is point out some of the false allegations in The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s complaint and some of mind-bogglingly stupid procedural errors he has made. Here at Hogewash!, I’ve tried to do that with a bit of humor and a great deal of sarcasm. The one thing none of the defendants has done is to tip our hand to show what our actual defense strategy might be. We’ll let the court try the case—if it manages to get past the preliminary stages.

Oh, and to save Xenophon from having to ask, yes, I still beat my wife—at Trivial Pursuits. But she beats me at Scrabble.

* * * * *

You know, Kimberlin never has found out what my defense strategies would have been, because none the LOLsuits he filed against got to the point where I had to put on a defense. Most of the first suit was dismissed on summary judgment, and the judge stopped the trail on the remainder when Kimberlin failed to present a case showing that I had made any false statement about him. All the rest of the suits were dismissed for failure to state a claim upon which relief could be granted.

He’s actually very, very lucky that I never had to make my case before a jury.

Many of my favorite posts are titled Qapla’. This one is from four years ago today.

* * * * *

The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals has granted my motion for sanctions against Brett Kimberlin.

The Gentle Reader should note that the three-judge panel found that Kimberlin’s appeal was frivolous.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

* * * * *

Heh.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Brett Kimberlin is a perjurer. He was convicted of perjury before he turned 20, and he has continued to make false statements under oath. In January, 2013, I ran a series of post dealing with the lies he told in court during the the early days of his lawfare campaign. The post from eight years ago today was Dread Pirate #BrettKimberlin and Perjury 10.

* * * * *

On 29 June, 2012, there was a hearing in Montgomery County District Court for a peace order petition that TDPK had filed against one John Norton. Brett Kimberlin was in his usual form. While I don’t have an official transcript of the hearing, Aaron Walker has transcribed portions from audio that he obtained from the court.

TDPK claimed that Mr. Norton had been lurking in the bushes in front of the Kimberlin residence. In the transcript below K is Brett Kimberlin and J is the judge. TDPK said that he was going to pick up his 8 year old daughter from a neighbor’s house—

K: And so I walked out of my door, to go pick her up, and I see a man lurking behind the bushes in the corner of my property and I was kind of taken aback by it. But I kept walking toward my car because I had to pick my daughter up.

J: Now was that in the general direction of where the man was in the bushes or in the opposite?

K: The man was facing the road, the— to the left of the— on the left side of my house there’s some bushes towards the road and my car was right in front of my house.

Lurking in the bushes? As I type this, I’m looking at the Google Street View image of the Kimberlin residence. Looking from the street, there’s a small shrub that appears to actually be on the property next door by the neighbor’s driveway. It’s “on the left” as seen from that point of view. There’s also a even smaller shrub at the opposite front corner of the Kimberlin lot. It appears to be about as tall as the fire hydrant in front of it. I’m not sure how one would lurk in those bushes.

K: And so I turn around, obviously I was concerned about my daughter. You know, I didn’t know if anything had happened to her, I was scared, so I turned around and I went to the neighbor’s house. She was right there in front of the house. I put her in the car and Mr. Norton is driving away, and so I—

J: Have you ever seen this man before?

K: Never seen him before in my life.

J: Every seen the car before?

K: Never seen the car before.

J: Alright.

K: So I followed the car, and went around the corner, and there was a stop light. I pull up behind him and he’s… again it’s a convertible, and he reaches around with a camera, again, and takes more pictures of me. I gave him the finger, I admit it, you know, I don’t like a guy coming out in front of my house taking pictures of me and my kid.

He’s concerned that this lurker might be dangerous, so he puts his daughter in the car and chases after the guy.

Uh, huh.

So what was Mr. Norton’s side of the story? In the transcript below N is John Norton and L is his lawyer.

L: Did there come a time when you ended up coming into contact with Mr. Kimberlin?

N: Not any physical contact, but he did chase me down in his car, the picture he showed, shows him behind me, flipping me off. I don’t know why he chose to chase me down. I was not on his property, I have stopped my car on [Kimberlin’s street name omitted].

L: What brings you on [Kimberlin’s street]?

N: It is a bail out route on my commute.

L: And where is your commute?

N: I commute between Bethesda, Maryland, and Fairfax, Virginia.

Chased him down?

L: And on June… what’s the date here? June 15, is it? June 15, you said, what brought your attention— what caused you to take out your phone and take a picture of the car behind you?

N: When I was on River Road, I saw what turned out to be Mr. Kimberlin’s car driving erratically, cutting in and out of lanes, trying to catch up to me, tailgating me. We reached the stoplight at River and Burdette, he pulled up… you can see how close in the picture, how close it was. He… he pulled out a pen and [unintelligible] furiously scribbingly as if he wanted me to know he was writing something down, he was revving the engine in his car, and for me, I thought, “some crazy person is chasing me down, I need some evidence, I need some protection.” So I picked up my phone and shot about seven seconds of video, from which the picture of him flipping me off was taken as a framegrab.

TDPK claimed that he was freaked out when Seth Allen reposted the picture of him flipping off Mr. Norton.

K: The picture of my car, that was posted on the internet by the client of the man that I had the peace order against. So I get kind of freaked out that, you know, this guy is somehow related to the guy who I had a peace order against, Mr. Walker.

Note that Mr. Allen could not have posted the photo before or during TDPK’s chase of Mr. Norton. In any case, Mr. Norton had no association with either Mr. Allen or Mr. Walker.

L: Now, are you associated with Aaron Walker, any [sic]?

N: I am not.

L: Okay. And, did you go to his house on June 15, to take pictures, get out of your car and take pictures?

N: I did not go to Mr. Kimberlin’s house. I did not get out of my car. I did not take pictures at his house.

L: Alright. And what caused you to post the picture of Mr. Kimberlin flipping you off on the internet?

N: Well, first of all, for protection to make sure that it was publicized, that someone had chased me down and was flipping me off. And also, honestly, I thought it was kind of funny.

We have two different stories. One is told by a reputable citizen with nothing more that traffic tickets on his record, and that story is corroborated, at least in part, by other evidence. The other is told by a convicted felon, one of who’s crimes is perjury, and that story is contradicted by other evidence. Who would you believe?

So we have the records of nine appearances before judges in Montgomery County, and each appearance has something hinky about TDPK’s testimony. Some of his tales are, perhaps, merely flakey. Some are clearly false, but the State’s Attorney has given TDPK a free pass.

John McCarthy has not yet answered the letter I sent him asking about his decisions to refrain from prosecuting Brett Kimberlin for perjury. Fine. I’m not one of his constituents. Maybe he will have to explain his decision in 2014 when he’s up for reelection.

UPDATE–Spelling error corrected. @&#$ing autocorrect.

* * * * *

Lying liars gotta lie.

BTW, in 2016, a District Court Commission found probable cause to charge Kimberlin with perjury for statements made in the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit, but once again, the Montgomery County State’s Attorney’s Office dropped the charge.

The members of Team Kimberlin are so ofter either lying or completely ignorant fo the facts that it’s worth noting when they get something right. Seven years ago today, William Ferguson got One Right and One Wrong.

* * * * *

Believe it or not, Bosun Billy Very Ordinary Seaman Ferguson got one correct today.wilsb8_201401092003ZIt turns out that the margins The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has been using on his RICO Madness filings do not conform to Local Rule 102.2.b.

All documents filed with the Court shall not exceed 8 1/2” x 11”, with a top margin of at least 1 1/2” and left-hand margin of 1” and a right-hand margin of 1/2”.

OTOH, VOSF has been running his keyboard about Hogewash! divulging his soooper sekrit email address. By that he means his email address that pops up in multiple places on Google or Bing searches of his name, the email address publicly associated with, for example, his FargoTube account or his postings on alt.atheism.moderated.

The thing that got Team Kimberlin riled up and engaged in lawfare and cyberharassment was having truthful information published about them on the Internet. Their responses to the truth invariably involved lies. There lying became so common that this blog began a recurring feature called Prevarication Du Jour. Here’s the PDJ from seven years ago today.

* * * * *

Perhaps he is relying on the appearance that he has so few assets as to be judgment proof. Perhaps he is relying on a diminished mental capacity defense. Whatever his motivation, Bill Schmalfeldt tells lies.db201401041234ZThat tweet accuses Aaron Walker and me of stealing money. Theft is a crime. If Bill Schmalfeldt has evidence that I have stolen money, he should give that information to law enforcement. If he doesn’t, he would be well advised to publish a retraction.

That tweet accuses Aaron Walker and me of attempting to force someone to commit perjury. That is a crime also. If Bill Schmalfeldt has evidence that I have attempted to force someone to commit perjury, he should give that information to law enforcement. If he doesn’t, he would be well advised to publish a retraction.

Very soon.

* * * * *

I find it amusing that at Schmalfeldt did in fact try use a diminished mental capacity defense in a criminal case, but he withdrew it when the judge told him that she would have to send him off for a ten-day psych evaluation if he entered such a plea.

Maryland is one of the most difficult states in which to prove a defamation claim in court. The allegedly defamatory statement must be false, and the burden to prove falsity is on the plaintiff. One of the key problems with Brett Kimberlin’s campaign of pro-se lawfare was that he picked a defendant-friendly forum to bring his case. Another was that he failed produce any evidence to support his claims, as the TKPOTD from six years ago points out.

* * * * *

During the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. trial last year, Brett Kimberlin accused Aaron Walker, Stacy McCain, Ali Akbar, and me of defaming him by calling him a “murder,” a “terrorist,” and a “pedophile.” He lost that case because he could not prove that anything we said about him was false.

2015 should bring more legal findings related to The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin.

Stay tuned.

There’s actually a bit of The Saga of The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin still left to play out.

The Girl Scouts are suing the Boy Scouts. As part of their”gender-inclusive” programming, the Boy Scouts have change their name to Scouts BSA. The Girl Scouts have filed suit over trademark concerns, contending in the suit that the Boy Scouts’ rebranding would be “uniquely damaging” to Girl Scout operations. The Girl Scouts claim in the filing that the Boy Scouts’ gender-inclusive rebranding has led to “rampant” confusion among parents who are unsure which organization their children should join.

Team Kimberlin’s failures are a prime example of the Dunning-Kruger Effect. Brett Kimberlin’s delusions of adequacy cause him to file court documents that don’t properly support his claims. Indeed, they often wind up providing support for his opponents. The TKPOTD from six years ago today dealt with one example of his shoddy writing.

* * * * *

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin clearly needed some editorial help with his omnibus opposition to the motions to dismiss his Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness.ECF 231-21#FixedItForYou

I was going through some of the court filings in the RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuit while collecting information for a new project when I came across this—It was only a few days later that another court ruled in another suit that Kimberlin has failed to state a claim for defamation because his reputation was so bad that he was defamation proof.

* * * * *

When Brett Kimberlin filed the first RICO Madness LOLsuit, he screwed up the listing of defendants in the caption of the complaint, and there was quite a bit of curfuffle over a forged summons before The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin was finally able to add the missing defendant. The Cabin Boy™ was headed down a similar path with LOLsuit VI. Paragraph 41 in the body of the complaint refers to me as a defendant, but I’m not listed in the caption, resulting in a bit of pointage, laughery, and mockification until the complaint was amended.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


It’s amazingly easy to catch Brett Kimberlin lying. The TKPOTD from seven years ago today gives one example.

* * * * *

Brett Kimberlin tells lies, but he doesn’t do it very well. Oh, he gets by in the short-term most of the time, but in the long run, he winds up getting caught.

Here’s something he told Judge Jordan during the damages hearing in the Kimberlin v. Allen lawsuit. From p. 99 of the transcript—

And, and he talks about, you know, I haven’t been exonerated. Well, he doesn’t know what happened with the Justice Department lawsuit. He doesn’t know. And, but he goes out and says, I know that he’s never been exonerated and all this stuff. Well, I’m not getting into that here, you know. But I can tell you for a fact, and everybody here, I’m not on parole. I had a 50 year sentence.

I’m no longer serving that sentence. So something happened, and that’s as far as I’m going to go with that.

“I’m not on parole.” As of March, 2013, the United States Parole Commission still had an open file on him.

Kimberlin’s first parole was revoked in 1997, but they let him out again in 2001. In 2006, he successfully completed five years of supervised parole and was released from supervision, but his sentence has not expired.

* * * * *

I’ll bet he has Labor Day, 2030, circled on a calendar.

When I started blogging, I had a talk with my wife about whether I should use a nom de cyber or blog under my own name. We jointly decided I would not only use my own name but that I would also publish my contact information in order to make myself undoxable. It turned out that was a wise choice. Indeed, one of the things about Hogewash! that has frustrated Team Kimberlin is their inability to dox me. The TKPOTD from five years ago today dealt with one of their doxing threats.

BStweets20151212The Cabin Boy™ is once again trying to get this blog (and some others) shut down. Or I should say that he’s tweeting away as if he is. I have no idea whether or not he’s contacted WordPress directly. However, I can say that I haven’t heard anything from WordPress about any complaints.

Schmalfeldt seems to think that he has an absolute right to control the use of his name and image. He doesn’t. Because of Twitter’s ToS, posting anything there grants permission to republish. Thus, the image at the left does not infringe any copyrights. That applies to anything, texts or images, he’s published there.

As for his name, using his name to identify him when referring to remarks he has published in a public forum (such as Twitter, YouTube, or a blog or Internet radio program addressed to the public) is not a violation of his privacy rights. Oh, and look—BS_DBR—he’s published it on Twitter. Say, wouldn’t that mean …

movie popcornThe Cabin Boy™ is running off the rails. Call it a Feldtdown or whatever you wish, but he seems to be spiraling into another misadventure in the courts. That would be most unwise for him, but he’s not known for his wisdom.

ADDENDUM—After I had finished drafting this post, I was made aware of these tweets over on the Derp Brain Radio Twitter account—dbrtweets20151213The Cabin Boy™ is welcome to post all that information about me if he wishes, but that would be redundant with the information found on the DMCA Contact page of this blog.

However, before he posts such information relating to other people, he might want to consider how those persons might react and what steps they might take in response to such actions.

Oh, and it he’s thinking of suing me again, he should consider what happened the last four times he tried to bring claims or counterclaims against me. Does he really want to make it 0 for 5?

He’s also likely to have another filing due on the 22nd. More about that later.

And he’s facing the effort and expense of producing 31 copies (15 for the court and 16 for the lawyers and pro se appellees) of his appeal brief and 26 copies (10 for the court and 16 for the lawyers and pro se appellees) of his record extract for the appeal to the Court of Special Appeals of the Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club, et al. (II) RICO Retread LOLsuit.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

The Court would up grant the sanction.

There’s a joke in this about Kimberlin trying to punch above his weight, but it’s late as I type this, and I’d rather log off for the evening and get some sleep than try to figure out a clean version of it.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


It would be charitable to describe Brett Kimberlin’s court filings as sloppy. Few were even that good. Quite often, he would have multiple instances of two (or more) paragraphs with the same number in a document, and it wasn’t unusual to have to refer to “the second paragraph numbered so-and-so” in an opposition filing. Most courts let him get away with it, but the Maryland Court of Special Appeals finally had had enough when they saw Kimberlin’s briefing for his appeal of the RICO Retread LOLsuit. Here’s the TKPOTD from four years ago today.

Well, I can finally share that news. The Court of Special Appeals has ordered The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin to redo his paperwork in his appeal of the Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club, et al. (II) RICO Retread LOLsuit so that it complies with their rules.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

Producing all those bound copies isn’t cheap. (BTW, thank you again to everyone who hit the Tip Jar to help me with those sorts of costs during the Kimberlin-related litigation!) However, the corrected set of briefs didn’t do him any good. Kimberlin lost the appeal.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Today is the 79th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. It’s also the anniversary of a significant victory for the good guys. Four years ago today, Brett Kimberlin struck out at the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals. These three posts are titled Brett Kimberlin Fails Again, Strike Two!, and Strike Three!.

* * * * *

The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals has denied The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s petition for a writ of mandamus in the Kimberlin v. Frey RICO Remnant LOLsuit. TDPK was seeking to have the Fourth Circuit order Judge Hazel to allow Kimberlin to use confidential discovery material from the Frey case in other LOLsuits.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin is not having a good day at the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals. That court has upheld Judge Hazel’s sua sponte dismissal of the Kimberlin v. McConnell, et al. LOLsuit. That’s the suit TDPK filed seeking to have the judiciary intervene in the Senate’s handling of the Merrick Garland nomination to the Supreme Court.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

And the Fourth Circuit has affirmed Judge Hazel’s dismissal of the Kimberlin v. Hunton & Williams LLP, et al. RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuit.

I love it when a plan comes together.

It must be hard for someone who so desperately wanted to be seen as a player to realize that his whole life has been spent as an NPC.
