Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Perhaps the stupidest lies Team Kimberlin ever told about one of their enemies were the anti-Semetic slurs aimed at Aaron Walker. This post from ten years ago today was about Team Kimberlin and Anti-Semitism.

* * * * *

Stacy McCain has a post up about the nonsensical way Team Kimberlin and its enablers are using anti-Semitic slurs against Aaron Walker. Read the whole thing, but before you go, let me point out that Mr. Walker is not a Jew. Religiously, he’s a Presbyterian. Ethnically, his roots, like mine, are from the British Isles and Northern Europe. To paraphrase Disraeli, when Jews were serving as priests in the Temple of Solomon, our ancestors were roaming the woods of an undiscovered island.

Oh, one more thing. Anti-Semites are intellectual and moral scum.

* * * * *

Intellectual and moral scum … yeah, Team Kimberlin would fit right in.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

This Thanksgiving Day, I followed my usual practice of giving Team Kimberlin a day off. Eight years ago today we saw the Day Off Cancelled.

* * * * *

I was going to give Team Kimberlin a day off for Thanksgiving, but circumstances alter cases. I went to bed very early last night, so the call that came in at 8:52 went to voicemail. I didn’t listen to it until I was drinking my coffee this morning.

Team Kimberlin are a bunch of cowards. I’ve been pointing that out since 2012. Threats and insults sent from spoofed IPs, sock puppetry on Twitter, and harassing phone calls sent from spoofed numbers are how these gutless wonders engage those of us who speak and write about them. (Note: It’s interesting that they use the phone harassment quite a bit here in Maryland which one of the states that does not allow voiceprint evidence to be used in court. OTOH, it can be admissible in federal court.)

Last night’s call was a real prize. I doubt that the person whose voice is on the call would actually show up at Hoge Manor for dinner today. He knows what the consequences would be, and, in spite of his ranting about cowards on Twitter, he doesn’t have the audacity required.

According to the caller ID data, the number spoofed belongs to someone I’ve never heard of in Columbia, Maryland and who happens to have a number on the same 596- exchange as my cell phone. Several other recent harassing calls have come from random 596- numbers. Other calls have IDed as from local Carroll County phones, including county government agencies. (Suggestions for Team Kimberlin: You might want to verify whose numbers you’re using. You also might want to google the name Joseph Curran.)

Team Kimberlin should consider these words from George Orwell: Do remember that dishonesty and cowardice always have to be paid for.

* * * * *

Team Kimberlin, and Brett Kimberlin in particular, have been deadbeats in paying off their debts. Interest, both financial and karmic, is accruing.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

When a felon’s not engaged in his employment
Or maturing his felonious little plans,
His capacity of innocent enjoyment
Is just as great as any honest man’s.

There are no posts planned for the next 24 hours concerning Team Kimberlin. Even an avowed atheist with no one to be thankful to deserves a quiet and peaceful Thanksgiving Day. There will be more days ahead during which we can consider their story, so a day off is in order.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin has filed a petition for a writ of certiorari with the Supreme Court seeking review of the Seventh Circuit’s denial of his motion to have his Speedway Bombing convictions set aside. The government filed its opposition to the petition earlier this month, and Kimberlin’s reply brief was filed yesterday.

I note that the counsel of record shown is no longer Neal Katyal, a partner at Hogan Lovells, but Jo-Ann Sagar, a senior associate with the firm.

Stay tuned.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin is still trying to find a way to get out of his Speedway Bombing conviction. He’s petitioning the Supreme Court to review the Seventh Circuit’s denial of his latest appeal. He was convicted over 40 years ago.

The TKPOTD for nine years ago today looked at Mark Singer’s conclusion about Kimberlin’s guilt. Singer spend several years in the ’90s researching and writing Kimberlin’s authorized biography.

* * * * *

Mark Singer spent four years researching Brett Kimberlin while writing Citizen K. One of his conclusions was that Kimberlin exploited the tiniest perceived crack in the details of a story in order to spin things his way. On page 323, Singer reviews Kimberlin’s defense during his third bombing trial.

[I]t was those flaws that empowered Brett Kimberlin to obscure the truth. He did his cleverest  work in the interstices, and I spent months wandering through his disclaimers and prevarications before deciding, finally, that this was a case of homework, along with truth, being eaten by the dog, pissed on by the cat, and buried in the backyard. In Kimberlin’s case, the scenario was: I didn’t do the bombings; my brother Scott did, or else his friend Scott, or maybe my brother’s friend Joe. Besides, it wasn’t really bombings that put me in prison, but a right-wing political conspiracy. The government is corrupt, and I’ve always been a prisoner of war. If the eyewitness, Lynn Coleman, lied, then everybody else is a perjurer. If hypnosis witnesses were impeachable, the entire case is a dishonest confection.

When Kimberlin delivered a similarly sanctimonious oration at his sentencing hearing, he apparently believed in his innocence. At the end of the day, I decidedly did not.

* * * * *

The government has filed is opposition brief to Kimberlin’s petition. His reply brief would normally be due 14 days after the opposition, but the 14th day is Thanksgiving. The court is closed for the holiday and the day after, so he has until Monday to file a reply.

Stay tuned.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

In March, 2015, my motion to dismiss was granted in the Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club, et al. (II) federal suit (aka the RICO Madness LOLsuit). However, one count in the case remained alive against Patrick Frey. (Kimberlin v. Frey, aka the RICO Remnant LOLsuit). Brett Kimberlin kept me involved in the case via a subpoena seeking evidence during discovery. The TKPOTD for seven years ago today dealt with my response to that subpoena.

* * * * *

I have received the following subpoena:

I have provided the following response:

The redactions of the privilege log and one email are for the benefit of third parties not connect to the LOLsuit.

* * * * *

Because the subpoena was improperly served on me, I could have blown it off. I chose to fully respond for two reasons. First, I had nothing that would help his case, and I enjoyed pointinh out one of the reasons I couldn’t give him everything he wished for was because his false reports of harassment to Twitter had limited my access. Second, I hoped that voluntarily responding would prevent any further involvement in the matter.

I was wrong on point two.

Because Kimberlin received copied of emails for other discovery which I had trashed as part of my routine account maintenance, he sought to have me sanctioned. Of course, I opposed his attempt, and the dueling motions kept me in the case until Kimberlin finally lost and his sanction motion became moot.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

AFAIK, no one has ever suggested that Brett Kimberlin is normal. The TKPOTD for nine years ago today examined one of his oddities described in his authorized biography.

* * * * *

Brett Kimberlin is suing four codefendants and me in a Maryland court for a million bucks for writing truthful things about him. He’s suing 20+ codefendants and me in federal court alleging that we formed a racketeering enterprise to spread lies about him. Back in 1996, Mark Singer published an authorized biography of The Dread Pirate Kimberlin called Citizen K. This passage is from page 78—

Eyebrows levitated. A drug-dealing colleague had memories of conversations with Kimberlin that struck him as odd: “We’d see a girl who was pubescent or prepubescent, and Brett would get this smile and say, ‘Hey, what do you think? Isn’t she great?’ It made me very uncomfortable.” Another recalled Kimberlin introducing Jessica as “my girlfriend,” and if irony was intended, it was too subtile to register. To a co-worker at IU-PUI, Sandi confided that Kimberlin was “grooming Jessica to be his wife.” To another, Sandi explained that though Kimberlin’s relationship with Jessica was chaste, he intended “to wait for her and would marry her.”

“Jessica” was a middle-school age girl at the time. Sandi was her mother.

* * * * *

When he did marry, he forged a birth certificate so he could wed an underage girl.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin’s attempt to use lawfare to regain control of the narrative relating to his criminal past and activist present failed. Not only was he unable to squelch blogs like Hogewash!, he even lost control of the spin being emitted from his associates on Team Kimberlin. The TKPOTD for seven years ago today pointed out one instance when Kimberlin and Bill Schmalfeldt got stories crossed.

* * * * *

The Cabin Boy™ is still maintaining that Lynn Thomas is Paul Krendler. Meanwhile, The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin is on record (in his Kimberlin v. Team Themis, et al. RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuit) as claiming that I am Krendler.

They can’t both be right, but they can both be wrong.

* * * * *

And they both can be, and are, losers.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

You’d think that people lie a lot and routinely forge documents would eventually learn how to do it reasonably well, but Team Kimberlin’s level of incompetence is in a league by itself. This Prevarication Du Jour first ran seven years ago today.

* * * * *

The Cabin Boy™ is trying to dance his way around the trail of evidence of his forging the header he claimed was from an email sent to him by Lynn Thomas.TheMerryWidower201511180643ZAs a commenter has noted, the version of the email header initially posted on the Cabin Boy’s™ blog is not the same as what is there now. However, my analysis was done on what was posted on Twitter, not his blog. (Others have done analyses on the original images from the blog, and those have been consistent with what I found on Twitter.)TheMerryWidower_status_666375731480559616The URL for that tweet is twitter.com/themerrywidower/status/666375731480559616, but it has now been memory-holed.TheMerryWidower_memory_hole

However, the attachments were both downloaded and screenshots were taken of them. Here’s what the header looked like as seen on the original tweet. (Click to embiggen.)TheMerryWidower201511162202attachment2As the Gentle Reader can see, the one intermediate time stamp is 13:51:01 while all the others show hh:15:01 (depending on time zone).

pantsonfireSpoliation of evidence won’t save the Cabin Boy™. Rather, it creates the presumption that the multiple archived copies are true and correct. That presumption is reinforced by his habit of putting potentially embarrassing evidence down the memory hole.

What’s waiting for the Cabin Boy™ in Room 101? The Truth.

UPDATE—I could keep the Cabin Boy™ putting up new versions of the “true” header by dribbling out bits of evidence over time, but I’m not in this as a game of gotcha. He needs to understand that we got him cold on this one. The Vast Hogewash Research Organization has documented the various versions of the header that he’s published. We know when they were created. We know which word processor he used. We know what other tools he used. Etc. I’ll throw out one more bit of information. We know when the original email header he altered was sent: Sunday, 15-Nov-15 19:42:01 UTC. That information is embedded in all the files he has published.

Bill Schmalfeldt is a liar and a forger.

Q.E.D.

* * * * *

That timestamp typo was the clincher. Emails simply don’t arrive at the addressee 26 minute before they are forwarded by a in-route relay server. At least they don’t with the kind of hardware that Schmalfeldt uses. OTOH, …

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

One of the ways Brett Kimberlin has tried to stir interest in his not-for-profits is by making bogus offers of rewards.For example, Velvet Revolution US (which later morphed into Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc) offered $100,000 for information related to election fraud when it had a negative net worth and no cash on hand, and Kimberlin used the Breitbart Unmasked website to promote the fake offer. This was posted six years ago today at BU.

* * * * *

* * * * *

That post is still up.

BTW, Kimberlin didn’t offer such a reward in 2020.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

One of Brett Kimberlin’s silliest false narratives was that Aaron Walker operated a “hate blog.” Ten years ago today I posted that Dread Pirate #BrettKimberlin Keeps Using That Word …

* * * * *

… I do not think it means what he thinks it means.

Hate. TDPK keeps referring to Aaron Walker’s now defunct Everybody Draw Mohammed blog as a “Muslim hate blog.” Indeed, he uses that term several times in his Motion to Dismiss in the federal Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit.

<fisking>Regardless of how one parses the phrase, it doesn’t make sense as a description of Mr. Walker’s blog. The blog clearly isn’t run by a Muslim, so it isn’t an Islamic run hate blog. The blog clearly does not incite hatred of Muslims, so it isn’t a hate blog aimed at Muslims.

The blog isn’t about Islam so much as it is about freedom of expression and the separation of church or, in this case, mosque and state. In the United States no religion has a superior legal standing vis-à-vis any other. In the United States no person, Muslim, Christian, Hindu, or whatever, has the legal right to forbid anyone else from an otherwise legal act because the act transgresses that person’s religious beliefs. Telling someone to mind his own business in matters of religion is not hateful per se. OTOH, shooting and beheading infidels on the street, firebombing their offices, and the like, could be considered hate crimes.</fisking>

<mockery>TDPK is an avowed atheist. Atheists, are regularly subject to discrimination and persecution in many Islamic countries. According to popular interpretations of Islam, denying Islam and thus becoming an apostate is traditionally punished by death for men and by life imprisonment for women. That a lot worse than only 50 years for bombing.</mockery>

As mentioned in an earlier post, a motion to dismiss is not the place to argue one’s case, but if TDPK wants to put his specious stuff out for the world to see, he needs to be ready to have it examined and to watch nonsense called by its name.

Stay tuned.

UPDATE–The dialog in the talk balloon on the cover of Charlie Hebdo translates as “100 lashes if you don’t die laughing.”

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

One of the more pleasant parts of reporting on Team Kimberlin has been including mockery in coverage of their failures in court. This post, In Re Schmalfeldt v. Grady, ran eight years ago today.

* * * * *

The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt was a no-show. The peace order petition was dismissed.

More later.

UPDATE—

Cowardly no-show

FroYo and mayo

Empty threats but a full belly. And then some.

As the TKPOTD for eight years ago today showed, clarity of thought has never been one of Team Kimberlin’s strong suits.

The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt is lying.CBPR201411121734Z

There is no question that TDPS has posted pictures that meet the definition of pornography under the Miller v. California (413 U.S. 15) standard.

He posted a picture of two men engaging in anal sex with my face photoshopped onto the body of the the one being penetrated. The picture was originally posted at http://radiowms.com/2013/07/19/the-fat-man-episode-004-murdery-me [dead link]. The page disappeared when the copyright holder of the video from which my face had been lifted asked that the picture be removed.

Schmalfeldt posted another picture into which my face had been photoshopped. It showed my face surrounded by naked men with erect penises. Again, the link is dead—this time because the web host took the site down for violation of its policy against porn. The original URL was http://www.patriot-ombudsman.com/oh-cutie-pie-eh-nsfw-you-are-warned. This is the picture which may use a photo of me taken while I was underage.

Even if I could, I wouldn’t post either of those pictures here, but I can’t. Judge Stansfield placed them under seal during the peace order extension hearing last year. However, the pictures are part of the record of the hearing as is Schmalfeldt’s admission of having made and posted them. That record can be used as evidence in any further proceeding.

The Cabin Boy™ is correct in saying that I want no part of anything that is about to happen about, to, or because of him. If he thinks things through with the least bit of clarity, he should realize that he doesn’t want me involved either.

* * * * *

It turned out that Schmalfeldt’s second photoshopped image did us a picture take when I was 17.

It also turned out that Schmalfeldt lost all of the LOLsuits he filed against me.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin is a liar, and he tells stupid lies. For example, he testified under oath in his LOLsuit against Seth Allen that  his parole for the Speedway Bombings sentences had never revoked.

Q Were you released and then sent back to prison for a parole violation, for failure to pay compensation to the, Ms. Delong (phonetic sp.), the wife of Carl Delong, who took his own life after those bombs —

A No.

Q — tore up half his body?

A No, I wasn’t.

Of course, the documented record contradicts Kimberlin. As noted in the government’s opposition brief filed in the Supreme Court on Friday,

[p]etitioner was paroled in 1994, but his parole was revoked in 1997 for submitting a fraudulent mortgage loan application and failing to pay a civil judgment to the DeLong family. Kimberlin v. Dewalt, 12 F. Supp. 2d 487, 490-494 (D. Md. 1998), aff ’d, 166 F.3d 333 (4th Cir. 1998) (per curiam), cert. denied, 527 U.S. 1041 (1999).

Kimberlin has until close of business on the 24th to file a reply brief in his attempt to have his Speedway Bombing convictions set aside.

Stay tuned.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

The government has filed its reply with the Supreme Court to Brett Kimberlin’s petition for a writ of certiorari. Kimberlin is seeking to have his Speedway Bombing convictions overturned via a writ of coram nobis. The government has asked the Supreme Court not waste everyone’s time hearing Kimberlin’s appeal.

Here’s the TL/DR:

Given the weakness of petitioner’s substantive claims and his lack of any justification for the delay in raising them, this case would be a poor vehicle to review the bounds of coram nobis relief. Even if petitioner could establish that a vacatur of only some of his convictions could satisfy the collateral consequences requirement, he still would not be entitled to the relief he seeks.

There are 83 entries in the Related Proceedings section, and that reminds me of this quote from Kimberlin himself—

I have filed over a hundred lawsuits and another one will be no sweat for me. On the other hand, it will cost you a lot of time and money.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

The TKPOTD for seven years ago today dealt with one of the aspects of Brett Kimberlin’ incompetence as a litigator.

* * * * *

res_judicata_mugsI’ve been rereading some of The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s recent court filings. I’m beginning to believe that it may be that he simply doesn’t understand several basic legal principles. There are paragraphs in several of his filings that actually make the opposing parties’ cases for them. It’s going to take a while for all of TDPK’s LOLsuits and appeals to wind down, but the light at the end of his tunnel is an oncoming locomotive.

Stay tuned.

* * * * *

One cannot proceed pro se in the Supreme Court, but Kimberlin has managed to find a lawyer willing to represent him there as he tries to get some of his Speedway Bombing convictions overturned.

The government’s reply to Kimberlin’s petition for a writ of certiorari is due today.

As the original post said, stay tuned.

Bill Schmalfeldt thinks he knows the contents of my dreams. It is much more likely that he is simply following his own hallucinations.WMSBroad201311071212Z

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

Heh.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Seven years ago today, I had a post reporting on a lawsuit Aaron Walker had filed against the State of Maryland and Brett and Tetyana Kimberlin. Bill Schmalfeldt attempted to comment to the post, and I let his comment through moderation. I also made it the subject of a post called Yes, It Needs to Stop.

* * * * *

wms201511070328ZIt certainly does, but I doubt that the Cabin Boy™ will stop even though he seems to know he should.

* * * * *

That’s kinda hard to read, isn’t it. Here’s a link to his original comment.

We hear much less from the Cabin Boy™ these days. Perhaps he will be better able to Center his effort to maintain an Internet presence in the future.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

It’s been seven years to the day, and Bill Schmalfeldt hasn’t paid up yet.

* * * * *

wms201511060015Zwms201511060017ZI hereby claim half the reward. The other half should go to Brett Kimberlin for outing me in his Kimberlin v. Team Themis, et al. RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuit complaint.ECF 1-58

I should get my share for verifying my address and phone number. They are are 20 Ridge Road, Westminster, Maryland  21157, and (410) 596-2854. Since I don’t have a SEEKRIT SITE, I cannot provide a non-existent password.

Failure to pay the reward forthwith will be considered proof by the Cabin Boy™ that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin is lying in his complaint.

UPDATE—rsmccain201500060103Z

UPDATE 2—The Cabin Boy™ has verified in a comment below that he won’t honor his reward offer. Furthermore, under the conditions outlined above, he appears to confirm that Brett Kimberlin lied in his RICO 2 complaint.

UPDATE 3—Perhaps the Gentle Reader is wondering why the Cabin Boy™ offered the reward. One might guess that he feels flush with insurance cash, but I don’t think that’s the reason. I think he’s taken a page out of the Team Kimberlin playbook of offering a reward with no intention of paying. I’ll bet he believes that the “reward” gives him a basis for saying that some anonymous person ratted out [insert harassment target’s name here] as Krendler and that it provides cover for his next faildox.

* * * * *

It seems that Brett Kimberlin isn’t the only deadbeat on Team Kimberlin.
