Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

By this time in 2013, Brett Kimberlin has already filed a false criminal complaint against me and seen it dropped for lack of evidence and he had filed the first of the four LOLsuits he brought against me. The TKPOTD for eight years ago tried to warn him about messing with me.

* * * * *

Brett Kimberlin has a history of trying to use the court system to silence those who he perceives as his enemies, and one sure-fire way to get on his enemies list is to publish the truth about his past or his current activities. His latest bit of lawfare names me along with four other bloggers as a defendant. Gentle Reader, please allow me to make the following points.

1. The case will be disposed of through the courts not the Internet.

2.  Unless advised to do so by my lawyers, I will make no public comments about any pending matter in the case.

3. Tactically, suing me is a dumb move on Kimberlin’s part. He will find that I now have a reason to focus more of my attention on him.

orvilleredenbacher4. Strategically, suing me is an even dumber move. He will now either answer my discovery interrogatories and admissions and produce the documents I seek, or he will have to explain to the court why his suit should not be dismissed.

Given the poor quality of the legal filings made by Team Kimberlin, I wasn’t too much of a stretch to begin joking that they were getting their advice from the legal department of the same Acme Corporation that sold stuff to a certain coyote. The TKPOTD for eight years ago today reported on the actual source of their briefs.

The source of Cabin Boy Bill Schmalfeldt’s “legal” briefs has been found—Acme Underwear.team_kimberlin_brief

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Team Kimberlin is a bunch of liars, and if the story cited in the TKPOTD from seven years ago is to be believed, they even lie to each other.

* * * * *

My copy of Animus Nocendi, Bill Schmalfeldt’s latest cut-and-paste opus, arrived Thursday afternoon. I’ve read it. It uses some of his old blog posts and various court papers stitched together with a bit of connective text to attempt to tell his side of “the story.” I can’t really recommend it as an accurate, nothing-but-the-truth, recounting of the interactions between him and me over the past couple of years.

He does share one interesting anecdote. At the very beginning of the book, he relates a conversation he had with Brett Kimberlin in which the subject of Kimberlin’s claim of being Dan Quayle’s dope dealer came up. He quotes Kimberlin as saying, “Of all the things I’ve been charged with, that’s the one thing I DID do!” That summarizes the factually challenged nature of the book. Brett Kimberlin was never charged with selling marijuana (or any other drug) to Dan Quayle, and, if Mark Singer’s research for Citizen K, Kimberlin’s authorized biography, is to be believed, he never sold Dan Quayle any dope either. Similarly, many of the events discussed in the book did not actually transpire as Schmalfeldt describes them.

As I said, I can’t recommend Animus Nocendi. Howerver, if you insist on buying a copy, may I suggest that you use the Amazon shopping link on the Home page? I’ll get a cut of the action, and any earnings from sales of the book will be sent to Bomber Sues Blogger. [expired link] to help with the expense of defending against The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s vexatious lawsuit aimed at suppressing the First Amendment rights of bloggers.

One more thing … animus nocendi is Latin for “intending to harm.” That appears to be an accurate description of the purpose of the book.

* * * * *

Animus Nocendi is a print on demand book. It really can be ordered from Amazon.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Team Kimberlin’s LOLsuits have always wound up backfiring and becoming marvelous sources of pointage, laughery, and mockification. The TKPOTD from five years ago today dealt with one of them.

* * * * *

The Dreadful Pro-Se Freeloader Schmalfeldt has posted some more of his yibble-bibble concerning his unique theory of spoliation of evidence. (No, I won’t link to it.) He seems to to think that an Illinois Supreme Court case is the controlling precedent for his theory. However, that case deals with a set of facts that have nothing to do with his situation, and, here’s the more important problem he faces, because he’s filed suit in a federal court, the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and Federal Rules of Evidence apply.

res_judicata_mugsWhen he meets with his lawyer on Wednesday, he should ask about FRCP 37 and sanctions against any party who engages in spoliation of evidence. He should, but I doubt that he will.

He should also ask his lawyer about the effect of dismissing Schamfeldt v. Grady, et al. (I), Case No. 15-CV-1241-RDB (D.Md. 2015) with prejudice has on the claims in LOLsuit VII: Degenerations. For example, if Grady must be dismissed because of res judicata, on what grounds can Sarah Palmer be haled into the U.S. District Court of the District of Northern Illinois? He should ask what effect his application for copyright registration for Confession of an Undercover Internet Troll in which he swore he was the author of a book that identifies it’s author as Paul Krendler could have on LOLsuit VII.

He should divulge a great many things to his freebie lawyer, and he should ask a lot of important questions. I bet he won’t.

* * * * *

Whether the Cabin Boy™ was frank and honest with his freebie lawyer or not, the attorney was smart enough to make dismissal of the suit his first order of business, so LOLsuit VII died quickly.

BTW. Res Judicata Coffee Mugs and other merch are available at The Hogewash Store.

Saul Alinsky said that ridicule is man’s most potent weapon, and I’ve tried to use mockery in dealing with Team Kimberlin. When Matt Osborne made a lame joke about my believing myself to be the Sheriff of the Internet out a Blogsmoke fantasy, I began running a series of Blogsmoke old time radio parody scripts. That led to the Blognet and Yours Truly, Johnny Atsign features, all of which made fun of Team Kimberlin.

For a while, Bill Schmalfeldt was closely monitoring this website and often conducting searches to try to find something to use as the basis for a complaint. At the same time, I was loudly protesting that only rarely took a look at Hogewash!, so I began posting the times he connected to the site and the subjects of his searches, and the Cabin Boy™ tried to prove that the connection log data was false. That earned him this post about Watchful Nonsense which ran five years ago today.

* * * * *

The Cabin Boy™ keeps trying to evade detection as he lurks about here at Hogewash!, and he seems quite peeved when he’s noticed.MU201607201520ZHe still seems mathematically challenged too. Central Daylight Time is only 5 hours behind UTC, so the times he shows in red in his tweet are off by an hour.

Apple Watch Sleep AppOne interesting thing in his tweet is the image of that sleep app for an Apple Watch. I suppose that he’s trying to claim that the date shown in his tweet was taken using the Apple Watch shown on his wrist in a picture he posted earlier. If the Cabin Boy™ were to trade that watch back in on a Sport model, he’d have enough of a refund coming back that he could afford to pay the filing fee on LOLsuit VII: Degenerations and not have to pretend to be poor to get in forma pauperis status.

And as Steve Jobs used to say, one more thing … I happened to be taking a coffee break while the Cabin Boy™ was downloading some of the stuff he ripped off from Hogewash! this morning. I watched him connect to the site, move around, and download things. You can see when he connected here.

UPDATE—Wow! Seventeen people have clicked on the watch link to Amazon so far. In answer to several emails–yes, I really do wear that Mickey Mouse watch.My Watch

Today is the the ninth anniversary of the most popular post ever published at Hogewash!— Review: “Nothing Else” by Epoxy (Brett Kimberlin).

* * * * *

Back in 2002, Brett Kimberlin fronted a band named Epoxy and released a CD called Nothing Else. The story he spun promoting the album was that it contained songs that he had written while he was being held as a political prisoner in the federal prison system.

The band consisted of Brett Kimberlin on guitar and vocals, Wade Matthews on Bass, and Robbie White on Drums. The genre of the album is someplace between grunge and punk, neither of which are among my favorite musical forms.

Let me first comment on Mr. Kimberlin’s voice. I had heard his speaking voice in court, and I understand why some people refer to it as whinny. His singing voice reminds me of the silly voice that Weird Al uses on tracks such as Eat It. Mrs. Hoge, who listened through the CD with me, said, “Eddie Haskell.” On most of the tracks his voice was off key, usually flat.

Most of the songs could have been filler tracks on a generic grunge album. Some of the alienation in them seems to be more appropriate for a 17 year old, not someone 30 years older. Mr. Kimberlin was in his late 40s when the recording was made. However, three of the songs stood out. Vicegrip was actually interesting musically. Donuts had clever lyrics. It’s about lousy prison food and would probably get a nod of approval from G. Gordon Liddy.

Then there’s the last cut Keyhole. It was outstandingly bad. Mrs. Hoge and I met while we were in the music business, and during her career as a recording engineer, she recorded more gold and platinum records than I did. Her comment was, “If you’re gonna mike a guitar that close, you should use a better guitar and make sure it’s in tune. And get a better guitar player.”

While he didn’t do especially well with the acoustic guitar on Keyhole, Brett Kimberlin is actually a reasonably good guitarist. He probably couldn’t cut it in Nashville or LA, but could make a living in a minor market (such as Seattle) or playing the Holiday Inn circuit. Indeed, the world would be a better place if he did ignore the usual advice and give up his day job.

Nothing Else by Epoxy (Pollen Records, $16.04 from Amazon) is interesting because of who recorded it, but I can’t honestly recommend it for the musical experience it offers.

There are still some Amazon sellers offering “used” and “collectible” CDs.

Election Integrity

The Democrats and the Main Stream Media (but I repeat myself) have assured us that our election systems are fair, secure, and unhackable.

Item: The Mariposa County elections folks have announced that they will replace all of the tabulating equipment subpoenaed by the State Senate’s audit because it may have have been compromised.

Item: The New York City elections folks have admitted that they “accidentally” counted 135,000 “test” ballots in their recent primary.

Item: The California Legislature has passed and Governor Newsom has signed a law changing the rules for the Governor’s upcoming recall election to reduce the time his opponents have to campaign against him.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen, and I intend to enjoy some popcorn as I watch things unfold. Click on the image on the left to stock up from Amazon.

 

UPDATE—The Supreme Court’s ruling today in Brnovich v. Democratic National Committee supporting Arizonia’s laws regulating the time, place, and manner for voting certainly makes the Justice Department’s lawsuit against Georgia’s new voting laws appear to be even more frivolous.
