Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Team Kimberlin has rarely been effective in anything thing they tried, and the usual cause of their failure has has been a high level of incompetence shared among all of the members. Brett Kimberlin has rarely been able to figure out how to properly file legal paperwork, and his PR flacks have rarely been able to tell coherent stories to spin his narratives. For example, consider this Prevarication Du Jour from five years ago today.

* * * * *

The Cabin Boy™ has claimed that I have to look back to 2013 to find his nonsensical legal mouthings. A few hours or a few days will do. For example, …@GrouchyOldLib201505182332ZThe only accusation of stalking ever filed against me was in Brett Kimberlin’s recent peace order petition. However, it was thrown out during the ex parte hearing for the temporary order, that is, the judge found that the accusation of stalking was bogus.

I’ve been charged with harassment twice. The first time was in 2013. Brett Kimberlin filed the charge which was dropped and expunged so quickly that I was never served. There’s another charge pending about which I will not comment until after I have been served with the charging document, know what I’m actually accused of, and have reviewed that with counsel.

Meanwhile, the Cabin Boy™ continues to get things wrong.

UPDATE—As to that thing about being sued by multiple people, yeah, I’m being sued by two people, Brett Kimberlin and the Cabin Boy™. Kimberlin lost his first two suits against me (Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. and Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club, et al. RICO Madness). His third suit against me (Kimberlin v. Team Themis, et al. RICO2: Electric Boogaloo) is in the early stages, but I have have filed a motion to dismiss which Kimberlin has failed to oppose.

The Cabin Boy™ has filed several suits or sets of counterclaims against me. He withdrew the first suit two days after he filed it. His counterclaims were dismissed with prejudice. His second suit was dismissed for lack of subject matter jurisdiction. We’ll have a hearing on one of my motions to dismiss his latest frivolous lawsuit next Wednesday.

UPDATE 2—Let’s do a thought experiment. Pretend that The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt’s current LOLsuit survives the motions to dismiss. Is it possible that the Defendants might file counterclaims? What interrogatories might be asked in discovery? What documents might be sought? Who might be deposed? Does the Cabin Boy™ have the means, financial or otherwise, to finish what he has started?

Inquiring minds want to know. If the Cabin Boy™ is lucky, they won’t find out.

* * * * *

Yeah, Schmalfeldt’s been nearly completely incompetent as a pro se plaintiff too.

Ridicule has been on of the most effective (and quite satisfying) weapons to use on Team Kimberlin. Four years ago, I poked fun at Bill Schmalfeldt with an I’m Not Making This Up, You Know post.

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.

This has been in many ways a battle of wits with unarmed men.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Eight years ago was Everybody Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day. Lots of websites participated, including one that was then known as Breitbart Big Government. I linked to their coverage in a post titled I’m Shocked, Shocked …

* * * * *

Big Government reports that Mr. Kimberlin’s 501c3 funders are “stunned” to be supporting him.

Uh, huh.

I’m reminded of Captain Louis Renault.

* * * * *

Many of the usual suspects no longer associate with Kimberlin. Openly.

When the members of Team Kimberlin have run out of ways to annoy their perceived enemies, they fall back on telling lies about them. The TKPOTD from three years ago shows one example of such a stilly lie.

See today’s Quote of the Day.

BTW, when Mrs. Hoge heard of Schmalfeldt’s grandiose offer, her first reaction was to chuckle. Then she said. “Tell him, ‘No thank you.'” or words to that effect. Well, to that effect, but perhaps a little stronger.

Today is the eighth anniversary of my first blog post about Brett Kimberlin. It was called No Thugs Zone.

* * * * *

Fellow blogger and Maryland resident Stacy McCain has had to move his family out of the state because of threats related to blogging about Brett Kimberlin. He is not the only blogger suffering abuse from Kimberlin.

Mr. Kimberlin was unwise in choosing to pick a fight with the blogosphere. He is likely to find that, while we don’t always agree with one another, we have each other’s backs when the freedom of the Internet is threatened. Mr. Kimberlin and those who have supported him (I’m looking at you, Ms. Streisand) have bitten off more than they can chew. The pushback is just beginning.

UPDATE–The McCain family is having a ton of unforeseen expenses because of their sudden move. I just hit his tip jar. Why don’t you?

UPDATE 2–Expect more, a lot more, about this on Friday.

I’m not done with him yet.

LAWYER: (Telephone Filter) You have been recommended to me as someone to conduct an Internet investigation in the United States.

JOHNNY: That’s my line of work. Exactly what sort of investigation?

LAWYER: (Telephone Filter) We believe that someone in the U.S. is infringing our intellectual property on Twitter.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


When you’re writing about a bunch of psycho, you can wind up writing about psychology. This TKPOTD appeared six years ago today.

* * * * *

This post is about Team Kimberlin and psychology, that is to say, their crude attempts at the practice of psychology. One of the characteristics that I noticed fairly soon into my coverage of these folks was their continued reference to the alleged mental illnesses of those who wrote about them. This has included such absurd claims as that someone might be dangerously violent because he has ADD. Or that another person has substance abuse problems. I’m supposed to have OCD.

According to the DSM-IV (that’s the psychologists’ diagnostic bible), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is a ego dystonic disorder. That means that the sufferer actually suffers because he is distressed by his own behavior. I am pleased to say that I’m not usually bothered by my own behavior, so if I have anything like OCD, it would be Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder which is ego syntonic, meaning that the behavior fits with the person’s self-image and doesn’t cause him distress. Someone with OCPD is not aware of anything abnormal. He explains why his actions are rational, it is usually impossible to convince him otherwise, and he tends to derive pleasure from his obsessions or compulsions. Those around him suffer.

I’m told neither OCD nor OCPD fits me; however, Jerk NOS has been suggested by a friend who is a psychologist. I think she was joking.

But back to Team Kimberlin …

If I remember my Pysch 101 from 1966 (or there about) correctly, Sigmund Freud defined psychological projection as a defense mechanism by which a person unconsciously rejects his own unacceptable attributes by ascribing them to objects or persons in the outside world instead. Projection involves psychically expelling one’s negative qualities onto others. It’s a common psychological process, and I suppose projecting one’s own propensity for violence and lying or one’s own obsessive behaviors onto others makes it easier to live with a corrupt personality.
