I’m Not Making This Up, You Know


Jim Rutenberg, the “Mediator” at the New York Times, has an opinion piece up expressing concern over the challenge of reporting objectively on Donald Trump.

It is journalism’s job to be true to the readers and viewers, and true to the facts, in a way that will stand up to history’s judgment. To do anything less would be untenable.

Walter Duranty was unavailable for comment. Read the whole thing.

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.
