Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Yesterday evening, the peace of my Twitter feed was disturbed by tweets about a Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread post from 2013 peddling a story that Brett Kimberlin had said he had hired Ali Akbar to work as an undercover mole inside of the conservative political movement. The article (which now carries Matt Osborne’s byline) quotes a spokesman for Velvet Revolution (now known as Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc.) as saying—

“We hired him in 2007, as soon as we heard of his van break-in,” said a spokesman for Velvet Revolution. “Our alert Democratic staffers identified him for exploitation as a fake conservative political activist. By insinuating himself closely with Republicans at all levels, we could one one day pull the mask off and do tremendous damage.

“That day has come,” the spokesman said before taking questions. The call, which took place on Skype, lasted twelve minutes and took place under condition of pseudonymity.

Under the code name ‘Operation Shebbab,’ Akbar would promise intense social media coverage and then fail to deliver it, stepping upwards with every failure by throwing fellow Republicans under the bus. The plot has worked far better than its conspirators had dared to hope.

“Setting up the fake nonprofits, well that was an important part of the plan,” Bob the Spokesman explained. “Brett Kimberlin is too busy running actual nonprofit organizations to bother running fake ones.”

That’s the same Ali Akbar who Brett Kimberlin sued less than six months later for “defamation, malicious prosecution, harassment, stalking, conspiracy, invasion of privacy, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.” Kimberlin lost that LOLsuit and two others he tried to bring against Ali. Of course, The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s claims in his LOLsuits contradict the story being spun by Bob the Spokesman in the BU post, so at least one of the tales isn’t true. My money would be on all of them being lies.

Does Team Kimberlin really want to stick with a claim that Brett Kimberlin hired someone to engage in a form of election interference? Really?

Team Kimberlin’s flailing around is becoming downright … I was gonna type “pitiful,” but I don’t pity the fools. My reaction is in line with Stacy McCain’s.The mockery continues.

Zooming into M33


This animation flies through the local galactic neighborhood to the Triangulum galaxy (M33), a smaller spiral than our Milky Way galaxy. It first zooms in on one of M33’s bright regions of star birth, the nebula cataloged as NGC 604, a glowing cloud of hot ionized hydrogen gas..

An Old Star Cluster


An ancient globuleThis is NGC 6535, a globular cluster 22,000 light-years away in the constellation of Serpens (The Serpent). It’s about one light-year across.

Globular clusters are tightly bound groups of stars which orbit galaxies. The Latin word globulus, from which these clusters take their name, means a small sphere.  A large mass in the rich stellar centre of a globular cluster pulls the stars inward to form a ball of stars.

Globular clusters are generally very ancient objects that form around the same time as their host galaxy. Thus far, no new star formation has been observed within amy globular cluster. The lack of young stars explains the abundance of aging yellow stars in this image, most of them containing very few heavy elements.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The Dread Deadbeat Pretender Kimberlin clearly wants to be a player, but everything he tries seems to wind up being a bust hand. Big time drug smuggling—failure. Serial bombing spree—failure. Claiming to be a politician’s drug dealer—failure. Pro-se lawfare—failure. The following ran as the TKPOTD three years ago today. It deals with one of his many errors during his lawfare and Team Kimberlin’s general incompetence in gathering information to support their false narratives.

Here’s a marvelous bit of nonsense from The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s omnibus opposition to most of the motions to dismiss his Kimberlin v. Team Themis, et al. RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuit. It compares the defendants to James Bond and the Mafia.ECF 74-p2

Talk about projection! It’s Team Kimberlin that thinks they’re Internet super spies sleuthing out information on nefarious Right Wing Nut Jobs. Of course, they’re something quite different in reality.

The Gentle Reader may remember some of the Cabin Boy’s™ epic failures as an investigator. This past spring, he went on and on about discovering a soooper sekrit zombie website, but the site turned out to be a honeypot, and his reaction to it yielded information useful to the defendants in Schmalfeldt’s various bogus lawsuits. He got suckered again by the zombies just a few days ago.

Bunny Boy and the other hangers on at Breitbart Unmasked are moderately less clumsy, but managed to join with the Cabin Boy™ flailing around in the search for the original Kimberlin Unmasked. At one time or another, the original KU was positively identified as Aaron Walker, Jeff Dunetz, Dan Collins, Dustyn Hughes, Patrick Frey, Kender MacGowan, me, and several others. Accuracy and strong investigative skills are not BU‘s strong suits.

popcorn4bkTeam Kimberlin’s inability to gather data from open sources and their incompetence in penetrating only moderately secure online systems is clearly a source of frustration for TDPK. You can see that in the wildly inappropriate and staggeringly useless things he sought during discovery in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance LOLsuit and in the mind-numbingly wasteful discovery he’s pursuing in the RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuit.

If I wasn’t having to deal with his nonsense as a defendant, I’d probably find it more amusing.

Team Kimberlin isn’t doing any better in the realm of foreign intelligence either. The $9k spent on bogus documents that was the subject of reporting in 2017 aren’t the only … um … interesting things I may have to write about one day.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


We’re still waiting for the dust to settle in some of the Team Kimberlin litigation, so I’m still posting retrospective TKPOTDs. Looking back on the past Thirds of October, I found a couple of Pervarications Du Jour relating to Cabin Boy Bill Schmalfeldt™. I decided to go with this one from 2014.

wmsdbIf @WmsDb is the Cabin Boy’s™ only Twitter account, then who do these belong to?wmsmusicradioinjusticebusterThey were active accounts as of 9:15 pm ET tonight.

sir robin shieldUPDATE—A bit less than an hour after this post went up, I was informed that the Cabin Boy™ had taken his @WmsDb account private.

Yawn.

Why bother having a Twitter feed?

Moreover, why bother with an Internet presence at all when the vast majority of one’s postings generate more trouble than they are worth?

Two years ago, the Cabin Boy™ seemed to be a credible threat on the Internet. He had caused a significant amount of bother to several families. Then, about a year-and-a-half ago, he made the mistake of picking on me. I’ve kept after him and been able to hold him at least partially accountable for his actions, in the process demonstrating what a worthless non-entity he actually is. No one takes him seriously any more, and, to the extent that he is bothersome, he’s now seeing similar pushback from the people he annoys. Maryland and Arizona have already found him to be a harasser. A couple more states may join them soon.

Twitter, Kindle, and other online hosts and venues are getting wise to him. Supporting jerks who piss off their revenue generating customers doesn’t fit their business models. He will find himself more isolated day-by-day.

If the Cabin Boy™ had a milligram of sense, he’d pack it in. If …
