Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

This rather foolish post appeared nine years ago today on Breitbart Unmasked. It’s still available on the BU website. (No, I won’t link to it.)

* * * * *

* * * * *

That post ends with this words—

And we cannot wait to see Robert Stacy McCain try this blog court defense in a genuine courtroom.

Stacy never had to present any defense in court because he, my other codefendants, and I were granted a directed verdict in our favor when Brett Kimberlin failed to present a case sufficient to go to a jury.

During one of Matt Osborne’s turns at running the Breitbart Unmasked website, he tried, quite unsuccessfully, to turn it into something approximating a real news site. But of course, he couldn’t refrain from an occasional attack on those of use continuing to report on the site’s owner. This post appeared on BU nine years ago today.The link to that ABCNews post has expired. Following the expired links to several other ABC posts, Osborne concludes with this—

Transpose the issues presented here from the physical neighborhood to the electronic one. Aaron Walker Stalker will bulldoze your fence rather than slow down at the turn of his driveway. William Hoge will call the police because your grass is an inch too high. R.S. McCain will declare himself the victim of your shenanigans, then shine his laser into your windows the minute your back has turned. All of this is made worse by the internet, which rewards negativity, dishonest argument, and “link baiting” over factual journalism or a conciliatory narrative. Everyone feels completely justified in their actions, no matter how obscene or over-the-top, because the other guy is the one truly at fault just by virtue of his being there.

That bit about feeling justified no matter how obscene one’s action probably fits another former editor of BU better than anyone me mentioned in Osborne’s rant. OTOH, self-awareness has never been one of Team Kimberlin’s strong suits.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

One of the problems that The Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin has had with his Breitbart Unmasked website is finding a competent editor to keep it running. Bill Schmalfeldt and Matt Osborne have both failed at the job—Schmalfeldt more than once. Indeed, the Cabin Boy’s™ last turn left the site in such bad shape that no one has bothered to post anything new for almost four years. In fact, some of the posts have been memory holed. That’s not the first time BU has been subjected to an editorial cleaning. The TKPOTD for six years ago today dealt with the clean up that occurred after Schmalfeldt’s first tune as editor.

* * * * *

The Cabin Boy™ was editor of Breitbart Unmasked for while before 57F Osborne took over and turned it into Bunny Boy Unread. The site is backed up all the way to a 21 February, 2012 post by The Watchful Avenge called THE OCCUPY UNMASKED LIE. That post is still available on the Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Boy Unread website, but a significant number of posts from the Cabin Boy™ era have been memory-holed. For example, these posts from the last month before Schmalfeldt was fired have been spoliated—

13 Jul WHEN DID FRANZ KAFKA START WRITING MY LIFE’S STORY?
13 Jul JOGGING HOGE’S MEMORY
13 Jul EXPLAINING WHY HOGE IS WRONG ABOUT THE LAW
13 Jul HOGE SEEMS TO BE HAVING A CRISIS OF SPIRIT
14 Jul HOGE’S CRISIS PASSES, WAR CONTINUES

6 Aug HONESTLY, POPEHAT. I’M BLUSHING OVER HERE
10 Aug ALI AKBAR ANNOUNCES NEWEST PARTNER OF PUNDIT SYNDICATION, LLC—WJJ HOGE

Of course, these are all backed up both online and offline. So has essentially everything that has been posted to the site.

When one buys pixels by the terabyte, a few gigabytes don’t even amount to pocket change.

* * * * *

For the record, there have been over 24,000 post here at Hogewash!, and all of them are still online—except for one, the donation page for the fund that was created to support Tetyana Kimberlin’s legal expenses when she was seeking protection from her husband. The page was taken down when the fund was suspended at her request.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

It’s been said The Sage of The Dread Deadbeat Pirate Pro-Se Kimberlin is much like a bad movie. At one point in an unusually bad fit of poor self-awareness, Matt Osborne (writing under the pseudonym Xenophon) was using Amazing Criswell posts at Breitbart Unmasked to predict the direst of dire direness for people who had been reporting on Kimberlin’s activities. Nine years ago today, I published the post, The Amazing Xenophon.

* * * * *

Over at Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it.), Xenophon has been trying impress both of the site’s regular readers with the idea that she is this generation’s Amazing Criswell. The real Amazing Criswell was a local TV personality in LA back in the ’50s. What little fame he had in the wider world was from his appearances in the Ed Wood howler, Plan 9 from Outer Space, and on the Jack Parr Show.

Criswell’s bating average on his predictions was someplace south of 0.0005, and that is only slightly better than Xenophon’s, so it’s not unreasonable for her to aspire to be in the same league.

There’s another similarity between Team Kimberlin and Criswell. Criswell originally bought time on TV for infomercials for his vitamin business, and that’s kinda like selling drugs.

Oh, one more thing …

Criswell wore bow ties.

UPDATE—Apparently, Matt Osborne thinks that anyone who disagrees with one of the Amazing Xenophon’s predictions should be added as a defendant to Brett Kimberlin’s frivolous suit against Walker et al.

* * * * *

Here’s a comment from the original post comparing the BU staff to the real Xenophon—

BTW, it’s interesting that Osborne never mentioned that I was misgendering him as “Xenophon.”

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Back in September, 2013, Brett Kimberlin was just getting started establishing himself as what Stacy McCain calls The World’s Worst Pro-Se Litigant™. At that point, Kimberlin had failed in his attempts to get a couple of peace orders, but he hadn’t yet lost any of the defamation LOLsuits that included me as among the defendants.

He’d filed a couple of false Applications for Statement of Charges against Aaron Walker and me, but they had been quickly killed off for lack of evidence. On 3 September, Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Boy Unread published a prediction that a LOLsuit was in the works.Of course, Matt Osborne’s predictions of the direst of dire direness ware (like the real Criswell’s) almost completely wrong.

The one thing that he got right was that we would engage in fund raising to help defray the cost of out defense. Although we had pro bono representation by Patrick Ostronic (Thank you, sir!), we still had several thousand dollars of costs related to copying, court fees, etc. (Thank you to those who helped!)

The worst mistake Kimberlin ever made was including we as a defendant in those cases.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

In February, 2012, Brett Kimberlin started the breitbartunmasked dot com website. It operated on-and-off until December, 2018, principally under the editorships of Matt Osborne and Bill Schmalfeldt. The site was first hosted in The Netherlands, but it was moved onshore and its hosting consolidated with over two dozen Kimberlin-related sites after a year or so. It moved back offshore after Bill Schmalfeldt posted some content from Hogewash! without permission, fleeing to avoid the consequences of a DMCA takedown notice.

The site is still wasting bandwidth on the Internet, but has had no new content for over three years. It’s been poorly maintained, and much of the original material is gone.

But the site has been well backed up all along for use as evidence when necessary. For example, here’s a screenshot from a post from seven years ago today that was a clumsy attempt to smear Aaron Walker. The contents of the post are utter rubbish.While the post was still available at the BU website as of 10:16 ET Tuesday evening, it screenshot is from the post’s html file on one of the existing offline backups.

I doubt that Team Kimberlin is aware of the evidence the left lying about.

Some things do not have a statute of limitations.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Matt Osborne was one of the members of Team Kimberlin who served as editor of Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread. Here’s what he thought was newsworthy nine years ago today.

Just like the rest of the Team Kimberlin crew, Matt Osborne is a failure.

After that post went up, Aaron successfully defended himself in three of The Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s LOLsuits, successfully represented me in one of Kimberlin’s appeals to the Fourth Circuit, and successfully represented clients in a LOLsuit filed by Bill Schmalfeldt.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

What might be a liar’s ultimate fear? Eight years ago today I considered what would be waiting for an editor of Breitbart Unmasked in Room 101?

* * * * *

Xenophon the Troll’s use of the term “memory hole” in a post he put up at Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it.) got me thinking about the origin of that term in the book Nineteen Eighty Four. One thought led to another, and Room 101 came to mind. Room 101 was the torture chamber at the Ministry of Love where the Party subjected a prisoner to his worst nightmare.

That got me to thinking … what would Xenophon find in Room 101?

Truth, perhaps?

* * * * *

Truth has always been a stranger to Breitbart Unmasked.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Every time Brett Kimberlin filed one of his LOLsuits, his PR flacks at Breitbart Unmasked would loudly predict the direst of dire direness was about to befall the defendants. And then, as the facts surrounding the case would surface, a certain stillness would come over BU. Eight years ago today, I took note that It Sure Is Quiet Over There.

* * * * *

RICOMadnessThere being the Breitbart Unmasked website (No, I won’t link to it.).

It’s been over a week since The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin received my motion to dismiss in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO lawsuit, but nothing has appeared on his website attempting to debunk any of the points made in my motion. Given the ballyhoo at Breitbart Unmasked when the state and federal suits were filed, I’m a bit surprised.

Their expert analysis (stop laughing) of the case showed that the Brett Kimberlin had all the defendants dead to rights. According to Breitbart Unmasked, the RICO suit was supposed to result the defendants becoming the targets of an FBI investigation, but, thus far, the only federal agencies that have contacted me since the suit was filed have been NASA, asking a technical question about some equipment I designed, and the Social Security Administration, informing me of a 1.5% cost-of-living increase.

Perhaps, TDPK has been busy with all the paperwork due by the first week of the new year. He had a bunch due in the state Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. case at the end of last week. There’s a deadline in the RICO case coming up between Christmas and New Year’s Eve, and several deadlines during the first week of 2014.

Still, Xenophon or Roger S should have written something by now—unless, of course, they can’t find anything to attack.

Fail.

* * * * *

Of course, Breitbart Unmasked is still up wasting bandwidth on the Internet, but it hasn’t had any new material posted for over three years.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

When Bill Schmalfeldt wasn’t predicting the direst of dire direness would overwhelm Team Kimberlin’s adversaries, Matt Osborne would serve as their false prophet. Eight years ago today, I wrote about Osborne (using the nom de cyber of Xenophon) channeling The Amazing Criswell and Criswell’s Weather Forecasts.

* * * * *

Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it.) has an occasional feature in which Xenophon channels The Amazing Criswell while making predictions. It turns out to be an apt choice because the predictions are usually as spectacularly wrong as the real Criswell’s.

Last weekend’s forecast was for

Clouds of butthurt have limited visibility in the Carroll County, Maryland area. Expect drizzles of stupid all weekend, with sunny skies due to arrive by Monday afternoon.

It turned out that all the butthurt wound up centered on Elkridge, Maryland, which is in Howard County, although things were sunny here in Westminster.

I wonder if Criswell foresees the blizzard of paper about to descend on Bethesda, Maryland?

* * * * *

The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin was buried with legal paperwork during the holidays that year because of timing set by when he filed his LOLsuits.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Matt Osborne has turned up in some of the recent TKPOTD as 57F Matt Osborne.The TKPOTD for eight years ago today announced his joining of the Team Kimberlin crew.

* * * * *

We have a new member of the crew. Matt Osborne has decided to get involved in helping Team Kimberlin dig even deeper holes for themselves in their lawfare. He is therefore assigned as their grave digger and will be carried on the roster as 57F Osborne.

* * * * *

Matt Osborne continues his career of failure, most recently getting his (a)OsborneInk account suspended by Twitter.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

I was the first of several people to hold Bill Schmalfeldt accountable for his cyberthuggery and harassment undertaken on behalf of Team Kimberlin. The Cabin Boy™ and his enablers tried multiple times to spin Schmalfeldt as a victim rather than perpetrator. This I’m Not Making This Up, You Know post from eight years ago dealt with one of their lamest attempts. The email was sent a week before the hearing that resulted in the original peace order granted against Schmalfeldt being extended.

* * * * *

I have just received the following email—

Matt Osborne
To: hogewash@wjjhoge.com
Legal Notice

Dear Mr. Hoge:

As Section 3-803 of the Maryland Criminal Law Code allows for a person to make such a request on behalf of another, I am officially and legally asking you to cease and desist all harassment of William M. “Bill” Schmalfeldt of Elkridge, Maryland. This includes referring to Mr. Schmalfeldt by such derogatory and defamatory “nicknames” as “Cabin Boy” or “Oedipal Bill” or anything other than his actual name. This includes the filing of any additional frivolous charges against him. Mr. Schmalfeldt can not preclude you from writing about him, but he considers derogatory nicknames, especially when they are spread by your followers all over the Internet, to be a textbook definition of harassment. Also, as all your previous criminal charges against Mr. Schmalfeldt have been dismissed by the Carroll County, Maryland, State’s Attorney, but you continue to file charges with the expectation that the outcome will somehow be different, Mr. Schmalfeldt considers the continued filing of these charges as harassment and demands that you cease at once.

Failure to abide by this request will be seen as a violation of the above named section, and you can expect Mr. Schmalfeldt to take appropriate steps.

Sincerely,
Matt Osborne

I will have no comment on this until after I have consulted with counsel.

UPDATE—After consulting with counsel, I choose to hold my response until 9 December.

* * * * *

Of course, even if Osborne’s claims were true, none of the acts complained of in that email were possible triggers for a Maryland peace order.

BTW, 57F Matt Osborne’s (a)osborneink Twitter account is still suspended.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Here’s a status report on some of the members of Team Kimberlin.

The Dread Deadbeat Pirate/Pro-Se/Publisher/Performer/Perjurer/Etc. Kimberlin is keeping a low profile on the Interwebz. Almost all of this web domains haver disappeared. With a couple of exceptions, what little remains hasn’t been well maintains for years. He’s been in court over the past few years in a frivolous attempt to overturn some of his Speedway Bombing convictions and has a couple appeals going in the Seventh Circuit.

First Mate Neal Rauhauser missed his million-dollar payday in Texas and is still hiding.

Cabin Boy Bill Schmalfeldt has finally managed to hold a job past the probationary period and is working as the morning DJ at a small town AM station that is not authorized to operate with as much transmitter power as my ham radio station.

57F Matt Osborne has managed to get himself permanently banned from Twitter.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

For all their grandiose planning and “clever” narratives, Team Kimberlin fails because they never seem to be able to understand the likely consequences of their actions of implication of what they’re saying. This I’m Not Making This Up, You Know from seven years ago today pointed out an unforced error.

* * * * *

Bunny Boy has a headline story over at Breitbart Unmasked about a young criminal being caught with IEDs. (No, I won’t link to it.)

Apparently, Brett Kimberlin was unavailable for comment.

* * * * *

Heh.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

On Friday the 13th of May, 2016, William Ferguson (one of the minor members of Team Kimberlin) tweeted that the Hoge v. Kimberlin lawsuit would be coming to an end on the following Monday.

On the next Monday, The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin’s Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Boy Unread website published a post titled Why Should A Judge Believe Anything William Hoge Says?. As of 9:30 pm ET last night, the post was still partially intact. It contains this sentence—

Embedded above is newly-obtained audio of that hearing which reinforces our reporting — and snuffs out any hope for further denials.

The audio that was embedded in the original version was from courtroom audio CD of the 2015 Kimberlin v. Hoge peace order hearing in the Circuit Court for Montgomery County. It was a brief out-of-context remark made by the judge as she was denying the peace order petition.

Five years ago today, I posted Some Maryland Court Audio CDs in response.

* * * * *

I’ll just leave these right here—CourtAudioCDs

* * * * *

It wasn’t long before the embedded audio disappeared.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Not all the threats from Team Kimberlin have been idle, but some weren’t carried through quickly. For example, the threat of filing a false criminal complaint for the imaginary cyberstalking of Tetyana Kimberlin’s elder daughter didn’t occur on the time table published on Breitbart Unmasked. The TKPOTD for six years ago today took notice of the original failure to follow through on that threat.

* * * * *

I thought that Bunny Boy over at Breitbart Unmasked said that I should expect criminal charges to be filed for my alleged perjury last Friday. I thought he said something about them coming last Monday.

I checked the Maryland Judiciary Case Search database at 9:00 pm last night.

[crickets]

popcorn4bkMeanwhile, pushback has already started in The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s RICO2 suit against Team Themis, et al., and. later today, I’ll be mailing my motion to dismiss the Cabin Boy’s™ latest Schmalfeldt v. Hoge, et al. nuisance lawsuit.

What with discovery in Kimberlin v. Frey and other thing that are afoot, there’s lots more legal paperwork headed Team Kimberlin’s way.

Stay tuned.

* * * * *

The false complaint wasn’t filed until after The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin lost the appeal of his bogus peace order petition in Circuit Court. Of course, the State’s Attorney dropped the charge because there was no evidence to support it.

TDPK should have left well enough alone. He didn’t, and that decision was and continues to be costly for him.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin’s use of lawfare was part of a larger campaign to try to prevent the public from learning the true nature of this past and current activities. Other parts of the campaign included the use of cyberharassment targeting Kimberlin’s perceived enemies, and the use websites, principally Breitbart Unmasked, to spread lies about those perceived enemies. Six years ago, BU was in the middle of smear campaign aimed at me. This post, Breitbart Unmasked and Topsy Tweets, was about Matt Osborne’s use of forged tweets. It ran six years ago today. The Topsy website was a now-defunct search engine for Twitter.

* * * * *

Breitbart Unmasked has published an article with Matt Osborne’s byline that states that I committed perjury during the Kimberlin peace order hearing last Friday. The facts debunking that claim have been laid out here and here. There’s one more bit of information that the Gentle Reader should know.

On 29 August, 2013, Breitbart Unmasked published an article with a byline of “Xenophon” titled LEE STRANAHAN AND AARON WALKER SMEAR A TEENAGER’S FAMILY AND TRY TO SNUFF OUT HER CAREER. Osborne has admitted that he used that byline at BU during that period. That article contains the following block quote from Twitter:BU20130829Given that the “proof” of my alleged perjury was the “fact” that I has sent the “Brett Kimberlin uses news story …” tweet that Lee Stranahan actually sent and given that Osborne included the original proper version in his earlier BU article, it is reasonable to conclude that his erroneous reporting is the result of a reckless disregard for the truth.

I demand retraction of and apology for all false statements published by Breitbart Unmasked concerning me and any matters related to the Kimberlin peace order.

UPDATE—The 29 August, 2013, Breitbart Unmasked article has been taken down from the BU site, but it is available on the Wayback Machine. Additionally, the entire BU site has been routinely backed up offline, and I have the original html code for the post in hand.

* * * * *

Not only are they liars, they’re stupidly, clumsy liars.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

It was six years ago that Brett Kimberlin filed a peace order petition against me on behalf of Tetyana Kimberlin’s elder daughter. He created a series of lies in an attempt to show that I had engaged in online harassment against her, complete with forged tweets. During the week before the hearing on his petition, he tried to get me “convicted” online through a series of false and defamatory articles published at Breitbart Unmasked. The TKPOTD for six years ago today dealt with one of those Bu posts.

* * * * *

I see that Matt Osborne doubled down on his defamatory post over the weekend and tripled down on it yesterday.

I believe that he as made a very unwise choice.

* * * * *

Here’s that post from BU.

Osborne’s post speaks for itself, and convicts itself of lying.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Six years ago today, I received a series of comments to Hogewash! that were clearly from Team Kimberlin for the purpose of harassment. Here’s one of ’em.So how did that threat work out for them?

Bill Schmalfeldt has gone through dozens of websites, free podcasting trials, Twitter accounts, and radio gigs, but the Cabin Boy’s™ web presence continues to shrink. The same is generally true for 57F Matt Osborne, Very Ordinary Seaman Ferguson, and, especially, The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin.

Meanwhile, Hogewash! continues to muddle along as a minor league blog in the right side of the blogosphere.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Other than his host of failed LOLsuits, the single most ineffective aspect of Brett Kimberlin’s campaign of brass knuckles reputation management has probably been the Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Boy Unread website. The TKPOTD for seven years ago today dealt with one opportunity Matt Osborne’s inept story telling provided for some pointage, laughery, and mockification.

* * * * *

Xenophon asks a silly and misleading question over at Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it).BU20140114b

This is one of those “have you stopped beating your wife” questions. The defendants in the frivolous and vexatious Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. lawsuit won’t be abandoning any so-called “blog court” strategy because we have never employed one. What we have done is point out some of the false allegations in The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s complaint and some of mind-bogglingly stupid procedural errors he has made. Here at Hogewash!, I’ve tried to do that with a bit of humor and a great deal of sarcasm. The one thing none of the defendants has done is to tip our hand to show what our actual defense strategy might be. We’ll let the court try the case—if it manages to get past the preliminary stages.

Oh, and to save Xenophon from having to ask, yes, I still beat my wife—at Trivial Pursuits. But she beats me at Scrabble.

* * * * *

You know, Kimberlin never has found out what my defense strategies would have been, because none the LOLsuits he filed against got to the point where I had to put on a defense. Most of the first suit was dismissed on summary judgment, and the judge stopped the trail on the remainder when Kimberlin failed to present a case showing that I had made any false statement about him. All the rest of the suits were dismissed for failure to state a claim upon which relief could be granted.

He’s actually very, very lucky that I never had to make my case before a jury.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

One of Brett Kimberlin’s online fund raising efforts has been to ask for support for his “election protection” activities. Meanwhile, his associate have been involved in fraudulent campaign activities. Two years ago today, Hogewash! was asking Is Matt Osborne Really a Russian Bot?

* * * * *

Well, well, well, … Matt Osborne got his name in the papers, the New York Times, no less.

The Gentle Reader may have noticed a story running around the Internet recently about fake “Russian-style” Facebook campaigning that targeted an American election. That election was a recent Alabama senatorial election, and the victimized candidate was Roy Moore. One of the fake campaigns was called Dry Alabama, and it was run by Democrats.

The Dry Alabama Facebook page, which appeared to be run by teetotaler Baptists, had a blunt message: Alcohol is the devil’s work, and the state should ban it entirely. The related Twitter feed exhorted, “Pray for Roy Moore.” The actual purpose of the social media campaign was to paint Moore and his supporters as religious wackos.

Matt Osborne, a veteran progressive activist who worked on the project, said he hoped that such deceptive tactics would someday be banned from American politics. But in the meantime, he said, he believes that Republicans are using such trickery and that Democrats cannot unilaterally give it up.

“If you don’t do it, you’re fighting with one hand tied behind your back,” said Mr. Osborne, a writer and consultant who lives outside Florence, Ala. “You have a moral imperative to do this — to do whatever it takes.”

Osborne’s buddies at Protect Our Elections were unavailable for comment.

* * * * *

Oh, and one of the things that Kimberlin consistently campaigned against was the use of electronic voting machine—until this election cycle.

Hmmmm.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Lawfare was one of the tactics that Team Kimberlin used to try punish those of us who have written about them. Intimidation via cyberharassment was another. Two posts from five years ago today dealt with my experience. The first was titled Cyberthuggery; the second was titled [redacted].

* * * * *

Louis Armstrong once said that he tried to make sure that his mouth didn’t write checks that the rest of him couldn’t cash. That’s a wise approach.

A cyberthug, OTOH, is a wuss who hides behind the physical disconnection of the Interwebz to talk trash. He’ll tell his target about how he’s going to do this or that and how he’ll [redacted] his target up, but a cyberthug runs away when things get real.

Does this sound like anyone you’ve come across on the Interwebz?

* * * * *

For most of this year, I’ve been allowing almost all of the off-color-to-obscene harassing comments to Hogewash! through moderation, but I’ve been redacting things that don’t meet my editorial standard for propriety. A significant portion of the redacted comments are addressed to Mrs. Hoge or are about her. Quite often they deal with her bout with cancer, suggesting that her case is terminal. One received less than a hour ago suggested that this would be our last Christmas together.

That may be. After all, none of us get out of here alive, and given my problems with cardiovascular disease, I’m a prime candidate for a heart attack. Indeed, with Mrs. Hoge’s progress moving into remission following her round of IV chemotherapy, she’s very likely to outlive me. For now, we both seem healthy enough. With luck, we’ll share many more years together. If not, we will have had a great life together while it lasted. We’ll take what comes.

It’s really quite sad to read these comments. They don’t hurt me—they’re clearly from hurting men who have suffered deeply from failed relationships with women. It’s all so pitiful.

* * * * *

Some of those checks are past due and the holder in due course expects to collect on them.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin foolishly thought that he could file bogus LOLsuits that would silence truthful reporting about him and his past and present activities, but his attempt at brass knuckles reputation management were a disaster. And of course, the “reporting” by incompetent PR flacks he recruited only compounded his failure. The TKPOTD from five years ago today dealt with some of the problems with brietbartunmasked dot com.

* * * * *

I’ve been going over the backups of post that Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Boy Unread has memory-holed in preparation for … well, let’s leave it at I’ve been doing some research.

Here’s another post that has been flushed from the site:BU20130713LawAs the Gentle Reader can see from the date and byline, this was a rant by the Cabin Boy™ from when he was trying to overturn the first peace order issued against him. It’s a marvelous bit of vintage Acme legal “reasoning.” He deftly explains why the court should reverse itself, and he only has two minor problems with his story—the facts and the law. The Gentle Reader who has been following the Cabin Boy™ for the past couple of years may remember that Schmalfeldt’s motion to modify the peace order and his petition for a writ of certiorari for an appeal were both denied in October, 2013, and that my petition for an extension of the peace order was granted in December, 2013.

popcorn4bkThe Gentle Reader may also remember that 57F Osborne has repeatedly promised to follow stories only to drop covering them and memory-hole posts when Team Kimberlin loses at their lawfare. But that’s one of the reasons why this daily feature exists here at Hogewash!.

Stay tuned.

The BU website hasn’t had any new material posted for almost two years.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

During one of his turns as editor of Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread, Matt Osborne tried to make a lame joke about my seeing myself as the Sheriff of the Internet. My response was the Blogsmoke series of posts. Stirring in Bill Schmalfeldt’s reference to the Gentle Reader of this blog as my lickspittles resulted in the creation of the Lickspittle Broadcasting System with Blognet and Yours Truly, Johnny Atsign.
