Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Back in 2012, Brett Kimberlin created a pirate-themed website called the Bloggers Offense Fund. That led to his being referred to as The Dread Pirate Kimberlin. Eleven years ago today, I posted Dread Pirates Compared–Roberts v. #BrettKimberlin.

* * * * *

The Dread Pirate Roberts, so the story goes, is a pirate of near-mythical reputation, someone feared across the seven seas for his ruthlessness and swordfighting prowess, and who is well known for taking no prisoners. Ships immediately surrender and give up their cargos rather than be captured, a fate they imagine to be certain death.

The Dread Pirate Kimberlin is more like a legend in his own mind, a pretender who wishes to be feared for his ruthlessness and legal ability and to be known for vanquishing all comers in court. Critics, he thinks, should immediately stop telling the truth about him and give up their First Amendment rights at his command.

It turns out that Dread Pirate Kimberlin’s legal acumen seems to be as fictional as Dread Pirate Roberts’ existence. And no one will surrender to Dread Pirate Kimberlin.

* * * * *

As the mockery continued, Pirate became interchangeable with Pro-Se, Performer, Protestor, Protector, Perjurer, etc., and when Kimberlin failed to pay court-ordered sanction, Dread morphed into Deadbeat.

BTW, The Deadbeat Pusher Kimberlin is still the Speedway Bomber.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Whenever the adverse parties in any of Brett Kimberlin’s LOLsuits sought to have a court compel him to comply with discovery requests, Kimberlin objected to being required to play by the Rules. Seven years ago today, I published one oppositions, and it was Strong Stuff!

* * * * *

The Kimberlins strongly object to any continuance of the trial in the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit—especially if the delay is for the purpose of forcing them to comply with discovery.

The version I’ve posted to Scribd is what was served on Aaron Walker. Here’s the electronic docket entry for the Kimberlins’ strong opposition—398855v-di266

It was entered on the docket on 1 September.

Here’s the certificate of service from the version served on Aaron—di-266_certpopcorn4bkIt’s dated the 6th, five days after the strong opposition was entered on the docket. This discrepancy leads me to strongly suspect that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has been diddling with service again and is about be caught again.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

* * * * *

The comments to the original post were full of pointage, laughery, and mockification, including this cartoon from Vigilans Vindex—

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

One of the running gags making fun of Team Kimberlin’s inept lawfare has been the assumption that they were getting their advice from the Legal Department of the same Acme that sells all those gadgets to a certain coyote. This post from nine years ago today pointed out that many of the citations in Team Kimberlin’s filings were Stale Law.

* * * * *

Acme Legal really should open a fresh box of law books. They seem to be specializing in stale law, especially in the use of citations to old court cases that have been overturned or that rely on a law or rule that has since been changed.

For example, The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin kept relying on Conley v. Gibson, a 1957 case, in his oppositions to various motions to dismiss in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness. Every motion to dismiss has cited Ashcroft v. Iqbal, a 2009 case that effectively overturned Conley.

As I read through the various Acme advised filings from Team Kimberlin, I see a consistent pattern of citing cases that seem to support Acme’s legal theories without regard to whether the case has been superseded in some way.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

One of the recurring bits of mockery aimed a Team Kimberlin has been posts about how abysmally small their web presence really is. The TKPOTD for eight years ago today opened with the implication that Bill Schmalfeldt’s web traffic was so small that he believed his only readers were stalking him.

* * * * *

Apparently, the Cabin Boy™ now thinks that anyone who reads his blog is stalking him.grouchcast365}201507102347ZLet me zoom in on the IP address of the Cabin Boy’s™ alleged stalker.WrongIPOooo! That’s a dynamic IP associated with QIS.net, one my ISPs (I have connections via three different ISPs). BTW, it’s a dynamic IP that gets reassigned from user to user, but I’ll bet Schmalfeldt believes he has airtight proof that I was stalking him looking at his blog.

FWIW, here’s my IP address via the connection I was using on Friday night.IPAddressFor the record, I do look at the Cabin Boy’s™ blog from time to time, usually via TOR, so the IP left behind is rarely one associated with any of my ISPs.

Oh, and given that Schmalfeldt makes comments about the contents of Hogewash! and even cuts and pastes from this blog, it seems that under his own definition he is stalking me.

* * * * *

It appears that Schmalfeldt’s web presence is continuing to shrink. As of 9:30 pm ET last night, the website for the newspaper carrying his writing has a world sites rating of #19,987,320. His abandoned breitbitnews.com ranks at #2,618,813.

Heh.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

It was ten years ago today that Hogewash! took note of A New Member for Team Kimberlin.

* * * * *

Last night, a Twitter troll popped up and attempted to go after Aaron Walker for a while. William A. Ferguson (aka @wilsb8) tried to bait Mr. Walker with a bunch of the Team Kimberlin stock nonsense about inciting Muslims and practicing law without a license. Ferguson also had a minor exchange with me.

William A. Ferguson ‏@wjjhoge Another member of the legal brain trust steps forward!
10:55 PM – 26 Jun 13

WJJ Hoge ‏@wilsb8 IANAL, just a victim who pushed back.
11:06 PM – 26 Jun 13

William A. Ferguson ‏@wjjhoge And lost if the press I’ve read about you is true.
11:07 PM – 26 Jun 13

WJJ Hoge ‏@wilsb8 You appear to be misinformed. I won Hoge v. Schmalfeldt. The court has not yet ruled on Hoge v. Kimberlin.
12:10 AM – 27 Jun 13

William A. Ferguson appears to be another intersection between Team Kimberlin and marginal players (pun intended) in the music business. He lists his occupations as Mastering Engineer, Producer, and Musician. (Back when I did mastering, it involved running a disk cutting lathe.) He operates Nova Media Group US, an outfit that solicits tracks from aspiring musicians and packages them a singles for distribution on iTunes, Amazon, etc. Unlike a real label, no artist promotion is provided. OTOH, his cut is only 10% instead of the usual 50%. The operation actually appears to be more like one of the custom record pressing houses or cassette/8-track duplicators that used to do small runs of goods that “Tex Nobody” acts would sell after their shows.

In spite of what the NMGUS website says about not doing CDs or vinyl, Amazon advertises a couple of CDs from the label, noting that they are manufactured when ordered. (If you want to buy them, go to the Home page and click on the Amazon link on the right. Hogewash! gets a commission if you do.) The only digital singles I’ve found are the two title tracks from those CDs.

According to his Google+ page, Ferguson attends Capella University. He says that he’s a Navy veteran and has worked for HP and Apple. There are several pictures of him with an 8-string bass. One interesting person in his Google+ circles is Bill Schmalfeldt. He is also among Schmalfeldt’s circles. I’m informed that the Cabin Boy is recommending that folks should follow Ferguson on Twitter.

Just before clicking the Publish button, I looked to see if @wilsb8 had decided to move on from trolling Aaron Walker. I found these:

William A. Ferguson @AaronWorthing How could Allen be you client when you’re not licensed to practice law in the state of Maryland? #gotcha
9:00 AM – 27 Jun 13

William A. Ferguson ‏@AaronWorthing Debate? You came to me in a pathetic attempt to control the conversation to suit your ends. I made it clear I wouldn’t play.
1:24 PM – 27 Jun 13

More Team Kimberlin gibberish. A member of the bar, while he is within a state where he is licensed, may offer legal advice to a client about the laws of that state, or any other state, or federal law. Thus, if Aaron Walker is in Virginia or the District of Columbia, he may practice law and advise his clients—even about the laws of Maryland.

Here’s an actual example of unlicensed practice of law. During the Walker v. Schmalfeldt peace order case, someone filed a Motion to Dismiss on Bill Schmalfeldt’s behalf. The motion was not filed by Schmalfeldt’s lawyer. Indeed, Tae Kim was not aware of it until the judge brought it up during a hearing. If Bill Schmalfeldt didn’t write the motion himself, whoever did write it was engaged in the unlicensed practice of law unless he was a member of the Maryland bar. (If he was a lawyer, filing behind Kim’s back was an ethical breach.)

It looks like we have a new member of the pirate crew. Are there suggestions for his position in the ship’s company?

* * * * *

Given his naval experience, Ferguson was assigned as a Very Ordinary Seaman.

When anyone bothers to take notice of VOSF, the mockery continues.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

While Team Kimberlin as run through dozens of web sites and, especially in Bill Schmalfeldt’s case, hundreds of Twitter account, they’ve never succeeded in creating a substantial following on the Internet. OTOH, some of their ideas for account names have provided great opportunities for parody or pointage, laughery, and mockification. For example, Shcmalfeldt’s Deep Brain Radio was easily mocked as showing by this Not a Typo post from ten years ago today.

One of the minor members of Team Kimberlin, Very Ordinary Seaman Ferguson, left a comment to last Saturday’s TKPOTD. You can read it here. It’s been a while since I’ve checked up on Ferguson. His instagram account is private. He hasn’t posted any new tracks at last.fm or new posts at wilsb8.wordpress.com since 2021. However, he has been posting stuff at GitHub,

He describes himself on his ABOUT page at GitHub like this—

My name is William A. Ferguson and I am a back-end Web Developer and avid modular synthesizer hobbyist. I create beautiful websites like this one.

Here’s the AWARDS page from that site—I looks as if his web development is on par with his imagined musicianship.

The mockery continues.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

IIRC, the first Star Wars-based meme related to Team Kimberlin was this one sent by one of the Gentle Readers in January, 2013—

Many others followed, but my favorite is this one sent by Kimberlin Unmasked eight years ago today—The Hogie—Wan memes must have really been a bur under Brett Kimberlin’s saddle because he brought them up when I was called as a witness in the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. trial.

The Farce is very strong with Team Kimberlin.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

One of the most stupid things that Bill Schmalfeldt did during his LOLsuit VI: The Undiscovered Krendler was to file a motion seeking to have the defendants’ counsel removed from the case. Of course, his motion was opposed, and seven years ago yesterday, the Cabin Boy™ tweeted that he had prepared his reply to the opposition and that he was “Waiting for the Earth-shattering ‘Kaboom’!”. Seven years ago today, I asked, “Kaboom?

* * * * *

The Cabin Boy™ has a post up about his reply to the defendants’ opposition to his motion to disqualify their lawyer in his LOLsuit VI: The Undiscovered Krendler*. He says that it’s well-thought out. It’s even supposed to be highly researched, cited, and sourced.

Uh, huh.

popcorn4bkOf course, he hasn’t posted it online because he’s afraid that it will generate the same kind of ridicule as his original motion. If he really filed something, it will eventually appear on PACER for the world’s amusement.

Stay tuned and stock up.

* Note that one of the parties voluntarily dismissed by the Cabin Boy™ was the individual he initially alleged to be Krendler. The dismissal included a statement that the Cabin Boy™ was no longer sure he knew Krendler’s identity. Thus, Krendler truly is still undiscovered. Heh.

* * * * *

And once again, the best ridicule in the comment section was in the form of a cartoon.Heh.

Nine years ago today, this post titled Not What the Judge Has Ordered … engaged in mockery of Brett Kimberlin’s incompetence as both a litigator and a musician.

A year or so later, Vigilans Vindex (aka the Cockroach) picked up on the theme.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

So how did all that lawfare and cyberharassment work out for Team Kimberlin?

Brett Kimberlin is still the Speedway Bomber, as well as a convicted drug smuggler and perjurer.

His music career was a bust.

His web presence has collapsed. As of about 9pm ET last night, the Justice Through Music Project website was ranked 14,315,784, and the Protect Our Elections website was ranked 15,029,580.

And as for former Terror of the Twitterz Bill Schmalfeldt … this comment from yesterday’s TKOPTD summarizes his Internet presence—

I know this is only related to Team Kimberlin in a tangential way, but I find it beyond the bounds of hilarity to see that Bill Schmalfeldt’s most recent Twitter account @ThePortlyPundit was hijacked by crypto scammers about a month ago…and no one seems to have noticed but me.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

One of the recurring themes in the mockery of the legal theories advanced by Team Kimberlin in support of their lawfare has been the suggestion they are getting from Acme Legal, the legal department of the firm that provides all those fine products to a certain coyote. For example, this Acme Legal Citation Du Jour ran eight years ago today.

* * * * *

@weltschmerz201502081354ZIt will be amusing to see how The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt tries to spin the facts to show damage to his First Amendment rights because a bunch of folks said truthful things and published opinions about him on the Internet.

* * * * *

It’s been suggested that Team Kimberlin buys their business cards from Acme as well.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Sometimes, a blog’s comments are better than the post itself. That was true for the TKPOTD from seven years ago today.

* * * * *

Last week was a pretty good week. Aaron Walker’s motions to dismiss and for summary judgment were granted in the Kimberlin v. Most of the Universe, et al. RICO Retread LOLsuit. The remaining motions in the case will be heard on 10 March. It wouldn’t surprise me if the case is completely over after that hearing.

res_judicata_tshirtJudge Mason threw out all of the claims against Aaron on two grounds. First, he granted summary judgment on all the claims except part of the invasion of privacy nonsense on the basis of res judicata. He also granted summary judgment on the same bases as his motions to dismiss the six defendants who were dismissed back in September. Those includes failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted and lack of personal jurisdiction for out-of-state defendants. (The court might have had personal jurisdiction over Aaron based on the battery claim, but that was wiped out by res judicata.)

The judge also found that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin had failed to state a claim upon which relief can be granted concerning the privacy torts TDPK alleged that weren’t covered by res judicata.

popcorn4bkThe net of this is that TDPK probably has no case left. Each of the other out-of-state defendants can point to rulings for the seven defendants who have been dismissed and say, “Me too!” Ali Akbar and I can point to Aaron’s ruling concerning res judicata and say, “Us too!” (But Ali may not have to bother because TDPK hasn’t served him.)

It will be interesting to see how Team Kimberlin spins out of control between now and 10 March.

Stay tuned.

Point One: The Cabin Boy has placed himself in an indelicate position. He went and got a peace order issued against himself because he was harassing me. The fact that he did so is now a settled legal matter that is not subject to relitigation. Thus, under the dreaded principle of … wait for it … res judicata, the fact of his harassment does not have to be proven again in any civil matter between us. If I were to sue him, the fact of his tortuous behavior would be a given. The only point at issue would be the extent of the damages I have suffered.

Point Two: I don’t bother pulling the wings off flies. I zap flies with a Bug-A-Salt.bugasalt

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

During the first few rounds of Team Kimberlin’s LOLsuits, the courts granted the pro se plaintiffs so slack because of their non-professional status. However, the courts eventually caught on their scheme of vexatious pro se litigation and began taking steps to rein in their purposeful misbehavior. The TKPOTD for five years ago today looked at one of Kimberlin’s futile attempts to convince a court to allow him to breach the seal on confidential discovery.

* * * * *

Here’s another round of pointage, laughery, and mockification for The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s informal opening brief in his appeal of the Kimberlin v. Frey RICO Remnant LOLsuit.

<plm>TDPK makes the silly assertion that he has a First Amendment right to file his motion for summary judgment and the accompanying exhibits in the District Court publicly even though it contained sealed material. He writes—

Appellant had a right under the First Amendment to file his Motion for Summary Judgment publicly. However, the lower court ordered the parties to file them [sic] under seal and maintained that seal even after its decision was rendered. This constituted a grave constitutional error that prejudiced Appellant by having his case litigated in secret, away from scrutiny by the press and the public.

Also—

The First Amendment provides an affirmative right of public access to virtually all judicial proceedings involved in civil proceedings.

(And also proceedings proceeding in the Department of Redundancy Department.)

The Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure, and the Local Rules of the Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit all provide for the use of sealed materials in a civil court proceeding. In fact, some things, such as the full names of minor children must be sealed. Patrick Frey’s lawyers were able to convince Judge Hazel to issue a protective order sealing discovery in the case, and TDPK is bound by that sealing order.

The First Amendment right of access to the court records resides with the public, you folks who are not parties or otherwise connected to the case. (I’m covered by the protective order because Kimberlin tried to get me sanctioned during discover for failing to give him documents I did not have. Because I was served with sealed documents that I did not provide as part of TDPK’s motion against me, I am now covered by the protective order.)

If Breitbart Unmasked wants access to the sealed portion of the record, that “news” organization can hire a lawyer and file a motion to unseal. If an enterprising “journalist” like Matt Osborne wants a peek, he can file a motion; as an individual, he can file pro se and avoid the cost of a lawyer (but he will have to publicly provide the court with his contact information).

And that brings us to one of Brett Kimberlin’s principal problems with this case and his other lawfare: essentially no one, not even the leftwing moonbat media, believes him. The only members of the “press” or the “public” who would want to violate the privacy of Patrick Frey and third parties mentioned in the sealed discovery are members of Team Kimberlin, and they’re either too poor to afford a lawyer, too incompetent to file a proper pro se motion, or too afraid to let their whereabouts be known.</plm>

Failing failures gotta fail.

And losing losers gotta lose.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

The TKPOTD for six years ago recounted a bit of testimony I gave in one of the Kimberlin-related court cases.

* * * * *

One of the things that Team Kimberlin has made a big deal about is the fact that I work for Aaron Walker as his paralegal. This exchange from my testimony during the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. trial will let the Gentle Reader in on the the secrets behind that work.

MR. WALKER: Without breaching any attoney-client privilege, OK, can you describe in general terms what you do for me as a paralegal.

MR. HOGE: Quite frankly, the bulk of what I do is proofreading.

MR. WALKER: OK, dyslexia —

MR. HOGE: Ah, yes. Ah, fortunately, you can type better than you can write, and thank goodness you send me mostly Word documents. But a great deal of what I do is proofreading. Another, probably the next likely thing for you to do is say, “Here’s a subject. Go to the law library or online or [unintelligible] and find me some case law.”

MR. WALKER: Is there anything else in general?

MR. HOGE: Well, occasionally, I’ll do like a factual investigation. Like “I need to know what happened at such-and-such.”

That’s it. That’s what I do as a paralegal.

Here are a few of the comments to the original post—

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Stacy McCain refers to Brett Kimberlin as The World’s Worst Pro Se Litigant™. Kimberlin may not actually be the worst in his league, but based on my experience being examined and cross examined by Kimberlin, he’s a definite contender for last place. One of the more bizarre exchanges we had was published six years ago today as Blogsmoke in Court.

* * * * *

Rather that post an episode today, I’ve decided to post this bit of my testimony from The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s examination of me when he called me as his witness during the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. trial. (I was called by both sides.)

MR. KIMBERLIN: Do you, on your blog, ah, do you have a character, an Internet sheriff? Blogsmoke?

MR. HOGE: Ah, yes. Um, a website that I believe is associated with you called Breitbart Unmasked, ah, did a satirical piece about me trying to cast me as somebody who was the Internet sheriff and, ah, used the term Blogsmoke, so I in return stated a feature that is a takeoff on the Gunsmoke radio program, uh, that was on in the ‘50s. And yes —

MR. KIMBERLIN: You kind of consider yourself an Internet sheriff.

MR. HOGE: No, I don’t. I consider that a way of poking fun at the people at Breitbart Unmasked by taking their idea and running with it and having a running gag that’s lasted for about two-and-a-half years now.

MR. KIMBERLIN: You also consider yourself a Star Wars hero.

MR. HOGE: (Laughing) Not in the least.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Have you ever posted graphics or photos of yourself as a Star Wars hero?

MR. HOGE: I have, people have sent me graphics of my face to replace, um, who’s the guy who played Obi-wan Kenobi, the older fellow, um, this is what happens when you’re old, um, Alec Guinness, Sir Alec Guinness, with my face instead of Alec Guinness’ as Obi-wan in various cartoons. I think they’re funny, and I’ve posted a few that were sent to me, and other people have picked up on that as well and sort of run with it. It’s, it’s something of a running gag in certain quarters of the Internet.

I couldn’t make that up no matter how hard I tried.

Being one of the targets of Brett Kimberlin’s lawfare was a serious problem, but one that required mockery as part of the response. His first LOLsuit listed seven causes of action, some of which weren’t things that can be the subject of a lawsuit. Part of my response was to suggest that he forgot to include Mopery With Intent to Lurk among his laundry list of claims.

Team Kimberlin’s forecasts of the direst of dire direness befalling me have consistently been a source of pointage, laughery, and mockification aimed at them. Yesterday’s TKPOTD dealt with a silly prophecy from Matt Osborne, This post from six years ago today, What’s Past is Prologue, made fun of a tweet from Bill Schmalfeldt.

Archives have plenty of his impotent threats filed away, some from more than a year before the ones recycled this morning, some from this month.MU201607280438ZIt’s interesting to compare the timestamp on this tweet with when he was checking in here. He took his first look after midnight at 12:36 ET, and his tweet is stamped 12:38 ET. Then, less than 15 minutes later, he began searching Hogewash! using terms such as “filed by the state,” “I was not a party,” and “Maryland v. Schmalfeldt.”

Who is sweating bullets?

These comments from the original post are some of the milder mockery—

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™.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin really wanted to be a famous musician, but his persistence in the face of his lack of talent became a prime source of material for ridicule. Of course, saw truthful commentary about his musicianship as grounds for a claim in one of his LOLsuits. The TKPOTD for eight years ago debunked the claim.

* * * * *

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin alleges in his proposed second amended complaint for his Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness that the coverage of his antics by my codefendants and me has adversely affected his music career. This is from paragraph 204.ECF 100-204I think that anyone who has had the misfortune to listen to one of his recordings or music videos would agree with me that a proper response to Brett Kimberlin’s music is “Don’t give up your day job.”

That cartoon got so deeply under Brett Kimberlin’s skin that he questioned me about it when he called me as a defense witness in the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit.

Q   Do you ever post graphics or photos of you as a Star Wars Hero?

A   I have, people have sent me graphics of my face to replace, who’s the guy that played Obi-Wan Kenobi, the older fellow? This is what happens when you’re old. Alec, Sir Alec Guinness with my face instead of Alec Guinness’ as Obi-Wan in, in various cartoons.

It’s a, it’s, it’s kind of a running gag now in certain corners of the internet.
