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. Today is Hogewash!‘s ninth anniversary. This anniversary Blogsmoke program is from five years ago today.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

This TKPOTD from five years ago today dealt with a couple of the minor players on Team Kimberlin.

* * * * *

I see from the comment section that Very Ordinary Seaman Ferguson has graciously given me permission to sue him and 57F Osborne. Perhaps I shall, although if I do, it won’t be on his schedule. I shall file at a time of my choosing. I shall choose the forum.

As a somewhat more successful musician than Willam Ferguson once noted,

You can’t always get what you want,
But if you try, sometime you find
You get what you need.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Several years ago at the peak of Bill Schmalfeldt’s cyberstalking, it became useful to begin tracking his visits to Hogewash!, and for a while I began publishing a record of his logins to the site. He must not have liked being caught skulking about, and he began lying about how often he viewed this blog. He even got one of his buddies on Team Kimberlin to lie about being one of the “real” visitors. This post called Lying About Logins ran four years ago today.

* * * * *

One of the things that seems to bother Team Kimberlin is the fact that their Internet traffic isn’t a well concealed as they had hoped. Consider this load of bullshit that arrived in the Hogewash! comment stream.MO201606040707ZI can believe that Bunny Boy has been the author of some comments sent to Hogewash!, things such as this image—

4fffe08c18be29fc7a25ee921d789533That’s about the level of maturity we’ve seen from Team Kimberlin.

However, I don’t believe that 57F Osborne has been responsible for any of the connections I’ve been tracking for the Logins feature here at Hogewash!.

Of course, I could be wrong, and here’s how he could convince me. I not only gather the IP address used by Team Kimberlin entities, I also collect other information, including the type of device connected, the OS it’s running, the version of the OS, the browser it’s running, and the version and build number of the browser. All Bunny Boy has to do to convince me that he’s responsible for one of the logins is to post a comment while he’s logged in with all of the info I’ve listed for his current connection.

Well?

<sarc> Should I give up waiting, Matt? </sarc>

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Ah, another anniversary. It was five years ago today that the peace order petition that Brett Kimberlin filed in his wife’s elder daughter’s name was denied. The Gentle Reader should not be surprised that The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin tried use forged evidence during the hearing or that his PR website Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Boy Unread provided false coverage of the hearing. I responded to those lies with this Prevarication Du Jour.

* *  *

Over at Breitbart Unmasked, Bunny Boy is running a copy of some tweets that Kimberlin introduced into evidence during today’s hearing. They supposedly prove that I posted a comment on an article at the Montgomery County Gazette.perjury1Because I denied making such a comment and could not authenticate the tweet as mine, Bunny Boy is shilling Kimberlin’s story that I perjured myself today.

Bullshit!

I couldn’t authenticate the tweet as mine, because it isn’t. It’s a retweet. The original tweet (and I presume the comment at the Gazette) was by Lee Stranahan.Stranahan201308281627ZI took me all of two minutes to find that original tweet via Google.

Did I mention that Brett Kimberlin is a liar?

* * * * *

I’m sure that I’ve mentions that TDPK’s first felony conviction was for perjury.
