Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Bill Schmalfeldt’s immediate response to yesterday’s TKPOTD was that I was lying. I wasn’t. He might do well to refresh his memory by looking at the list of my potential witnesses provided to him for the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit. Not all those witnesses were called, in part, because the Cabin Boy™ failed to appear at the trial. That does not mean that they aren’t still available.

Of course, claims of lying and false narratives are a boilerplate responses from Team Kimberlin. The TKPOTD from three years ago today cites an example.

* * * * *

Here’s another whopper from one of The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s filings in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RiCO Madness, in this case, his opposition to Lee Stranahan’s motion to dismiss.ECF 249-7

That deserves some fisking.

As best I can tell, the only one of the defendants named in the suit who took Kimberlin’s photograph and photoshopped into to any Nazi-related imagery was Kimberlin Unmasked. What KU did was clearly within the bounds of parody and commentary. It was certainly no more extreme that Kimberlin’s superimposing the words of Adolph Hitler over the faces of George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, and John McCain in the opening sequence of the Op-Critical Fear Not video. In any event, TDPK dismissed KU from the suit, and the dismissal was with prejudice. Since he has not pleaded and cannot factually plead that behavior by any other defendant, it’s a dead issue.

Pedophile? That was settled last August. Kimberlin lost that case. Res judicata and all that.

Supporter of Terrorism? I’m not sure who called him that, and he hasn’t pleaded that anyone actually did. OTOH, if the Gentle Reader were to feel justified in referring to either Ted Kaczynski (The Unabomber) or Timothy McVeigh as a “terrorist,” I can understand why he would feel that designation also fit a convicted serial bomber such as Brett Kimberlin.

SWATter? I don’t know which of the defendants might have called him a “SWATter.” Again, he doesn’t say who actually did. But I understand why the circumstances surrounding several of the SWATtings raise questions about cause and effect for some people. I’ve heard recordings of the SWATting calls related to the RICO case. It isn’t Kimberlin’s voice, but that doesn’t mean he might not have been involved. If he were connected, I doubt that he would have made the calls himself. He strikes me as the kind of person who hires a hit man.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Three years ago today, I posted a notice In Re a Peace Order Violation.

* * * * *

I have been informed that the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office in cooperation with the State’s Attorney’s Office filed a criminal charge of failure to comply with a peace order against Bill Schmalfeldt today.

I do not wish to make any further comment on the matter.

* * * * *

Schmalfledt was charged after sending me an email concerning medical care for Mrs. Hoge who had recently been diagnosed with cancer. Initially, I was going to ignore his email, but I was advised by a federal law enforcement agency to report the matter to the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office. The federal agency was investigating emails sent to the Administrator of NASA and the Director of Goddard Space Flight Center. I had been interviewed at a witness concerning the target(s) of their investigation and asked to advise them of any further contact by Bill Schmalfeldt (among others).

And that’s all I have to say about that case.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The level of incompetence shown in the various court filings from Team Kimberlin in the course of The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s and The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt’s LOLsuits is amazing. OTOH, it has been a marvelous source of material for pointage, laughery, and mockification. Consider the TKPOTD from three years ago today for example.

* * * * *

When The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin filed his opposition to Stacy McCain’s motion to dismiss the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness, I chose not to publish it because it contained a great deal of scurrilous material that was nothing more than ad hominem attacks on Stacy and several other people. After careful review, I have been able to edit the filing to eliminate everything that is not responsive to Stacy’s motion.

* * * * *

About a month after TDPK filed his opposition to Stacy’s motion to dismiss, Judge Hazel granted Stacy’s motion and the motions to dismiss for the remaining defendants, except for the civil rights count against Patrick Frey. Patterico won that count on summary judgment, and that RICO Remnant is now at the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals.

Stay tuned.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The easiest way to discredit Bill Schmalfeldt is to quote Bill Schmalfeldt.

—Stacy McCain

Three years ago today, after the Cabin Boy™ had included me as a defendant in LOLsuit III, I posted this sampler of A Year of BS on Twitter

* * * * *

This is a sampler of some of the Twitter activity from the Cabin Boy™ during the period of February, 2013, through January, 2014.

UPDATE—I’m told by a friend who has been paying attention to the Twitterz this morning that the Cabin Boy™ is upset because I have had the temerity to quote some his Twitter ravings. He should get used to it, and he will see many more of his own words coming back to haunt him if he continues with his LOLsuit.

Thus far, my response has been restrained. I have more important issues at hand. However, he should consider that my codefendants may not be as gentle as I have been to date. The ram has touched the wall, and I believe they are eager to use it.

If Schmalfeld is lucky, the judge will kick out the lawsuit under 28 U.S.C. 1915(e). If Schmalfeldt decides to do the wise thing (stop laughing), he will withdraw his LOLsuit before the judge rules.

* * * * *

Dismissal under 28 U.S.C. 1915(e) would have been for an improper in forma pauperis filing. While the judge did find that the Cabin Boy™ had too much income to file as a pauper, he dismissed the LOLsuit on an other ground, the court’s lack of subject matter jurisdiction over the case. Schmalfeldt had made only state law claims, and he still lived in Maryland when he filed the suit. Because I live in Maryland and there were no federal claims, the federal court was required by statue to dismiss the case.

It will be interesting to see how he screws up jurisdiction in LOLsuit IX.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Occasionally, I post material to provide newcomers to The Saga of Team Kimberlin with background information on Brett Kimberlin’s use of lawfare to suppress the First Amendment rights of people who write truthful things about him and his work. This was originally published five years ago today.

* * * * *

I’ve been blogging about the Team Kimberlin story since Lee Stranahan kicked off the Everybody Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day last May. Since July, I’ve done some original reporting on the Kimberlin v. Walker and Walker v. Kimberlin cases because they have been playing out in courthouses near my house.

I sometime forget that not everyone has followed those cases or the larger Team Kimberlin story as closely as I have, so it’s time for a bit of review. On Monday, I referred you to a post by Stacy McCain that provides some of the background on the Saga. Yesterday, I referred you to this post by Aaron Walker that fills in some more details.

Today, I want to you look at this post by Ken from Popehat about the kind of thuggery Team Kimberlin inflicted on one blogger.

* * * * *

Multiple LOLsuits later, we’re still waiting for a ruling from the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals in the Kimberlin v. Frey RICO Retread LOLsuit which is the last gasp of The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s LOLsuit filed in October, 2013.

Stay tuned.
