Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


With a serious bit of bad timing, Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Boy Unread has a post up trying to put a positive spin on The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s use of sealed discovery material from the Kimberlin v. Frey RICO Remnant LOLsuit in the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit. Earlier in the day yesterday, Judge Hazel bench slapped TDPK for his antics with defective subpoenas in the Frey case. In his Letter Order, the judge granted my motion to seal the information contained in the emails TDPK included in his state filing.

Pursuant to Local Rule 105.11 and the Court’s ProtectiveOrder, non-Party William Hoge filed an unopposed motion seeking leave to file five paragraphs of his Opposition to ECF No. 319 under seal. The motion is GRANTED.

Kimberlin v. Frey, Case No. 13-CV-03059-GJH, Letter Order, ECF No. 383 (D. Md. June 1, 2016) at 4.

The reason I gave for sealing that portion of my motion was because the information was covered by the Frey Protective Order. Judge Hazel agreed with me. I doubt that he’ll change his mind by noon Monday.

Don’t Know Much About History

The Cabin Boy™ was trying to write something clever about politics and succeeded in showing how little he knows about The Little Corporal. Of course, it was Napoleon who was tagged with that nickname because of his supposedly short stature and a rumor that corporal was his pre-revolutionary rank. Actually, he was of average height and had been commissioned as a Second Lieutenant of Artillery in 1785. Adolph Hitler, OTOH, was referred to as The Bohemian Corporal, originally by the Paul von Hindenburg, the last German president to serve before the Nazi takeover. Hitler had served as corporal in WWI, and “Bohemian” referred to his supposed lifestyle.

#SMH. This just another example of something the Cabin Boy™ knows that isn’t so.

Following in Dan Rather’s Footsteps


Katie Couric, who took over the anchor slot at the CBS Evening News for a while, has now apparently followed Dan Rather by producing a documentary with faked evidence. It’s about gun control, and contains interviews that were edited to misrepresent what people were saying.

Gungate, meet Rathergate.

Words Have Meaning


Over at one of his blogs, the Cabin Boy™ is running off at the keyboard about how wrong Aaron Walker is for saying that Schmalfeldt had referred to him as “stupid” when the Cabin Boy™ says that he called Aaron “obtuse.” He asks if there is anyone who doesn’t know that the words have different meanings.

Do they? Let’s fact check that with a dictionary.

obtuse \äb-ˈtüs\ adj : 1. stupid or unintelligent.
2. lacking sharpness or quickness of intellect.
3. of an angle: exceeding 90 degrees but less than 180 degrees.
4. not pointed or acute.

Clearly, someone lacks sharpness or quickness of intellect to the point of being stupid.

UPDATE—I’m told that the Cabin Boy™ has a new post up at the St. Francis edition of правда in which explains that the word obtuse means what he chooses it to mean and not what those pesky dictionaries say.

‘I don’t know what you mean by “glory,”‘ Alice said.

Humpty Dumpty smiled contemptuously. ‘Of course you don’t—till I tell you. I meant “there’s a nice knock-down argument for you!”‘

‘But “glory” doesn’t mean “a nice knock-down argument,”‘ Alice objected.

‘When I use a word,’ Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, ‘it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less.’

‘The question is,’ said Alice, ‘whether you can make words mean so many different things.’

‘The question is,’ said Humpty Dumpty, ‘which is to be master—that’s all.’

All the king’s horses and all the king’s men won’t be able to put sense into the Cabin Boy’s™ argument again.
