Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Gentle Reader, the setup for this post is a bit more complicated than usual. The TKPOTD for a year ago today dealt with an attempt by Matt Osborne to comment on a post published the day before that. The 4 March, 2018 post dealt with some of the lies Osborne had published about me when he was editor at Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread. The 5 March post gave Bunny Boy a dose of pointage, laughery, and mockification.

* * * * *

Matt Osborne is even more stupid than I thought. After being caught redhanded publishing lies when he was editor of Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Boy Unread and having to spend a year or so dodging being held legally and morally accountable for his actions, he tried to respond to yesterday’s TKPOTD with this comment.That YouTube link goes to an illegal posting of courtroom audio from Brett Kimberlin’s failed appeal of his 2015 peace order petition against me. (Courtroom audio provided by a Maryland Court Clerk’s Technical Services is may not be broadcast or posted online.) Osborne deceitfully characterizes Judge Creighton’s comments that he posted as directed specifically to me. They were not—as can be seen on pages 95 and 96 of the transcript.

Read the whole transcript and see how pitiful The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s case was and how Tetyana Kimberlin’s teenage daughter had to try to make his case for him when the judge wouldn’t let him practice law without a license.

Oh, one more thing—William Ferguson also tried to comment. His self-mockery continues.

UPDATE—It must have frustrated Bunny Boy that his comment didn’t make through moderation. Osborne has me blocked on Twitter, but I’m told that he’s bravely tweeted a link to that YouTube clip from behind that block.

* * * * *

It’s seems that the only way Bunny Boy can get his name in the papers these days is to get caught being part of a fraudulent FaceBook election scam pretending to be a Russian bot.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One of the topics of interest here at Hogewash! is the First Amendment, and it was Brett Kimberlin’s use of lawfare to attack the First Amendment rights of bloggers such as Aaron Walker and Stacy McCain that drew my attention The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin. One of the tools I’ve used in exposing his actions is Alinsky’s Rule 5: Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.

Of course, Team Kimberlin’s ineptitude at the use of Rule 5 against me has made ridiculing them easy. Bill Schmalfeldt referred to the Gentle Readers of this blog as my lickspittles, and Team Lickspittle was born, complete with team logo goodies for sale. Matt Osborne tried to make a joke about me thinking I’m an Internet sheriff, and the Blogsmoke feature was created in response, followed by Yours Truly, John Atsign and Blognet—all produced by the Lickspittle Broadcasting System.

This Blogsmoke episode ran a year ago today.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread is in one of its dormant phases now, but when it’s publishing, it’s a primary source for Team Kimberlin’s false narratives and lies. This Prevarication Du Jour from five years ago today spotlighted one of the howlers told by Matt Osborne when he was hiding behind the nom de cyber of Xenophon. (Note: Xenophon was a famous Greek general, and Matt Osborne is a mediocre historian and a soldier who couldn’t manage to get promoted to Sergeant in ten years.)

* * * * *

Xenophon the Troll is channeling the Amazingly Inaccurate Criswell again over at Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it.) This time the nonsense has to do to with First Mate Neal Rauhauser’s attempt to gen up some sort of connection between the Kimberlin Unmasked identity and a real person.BU20140127That’s an ambitious undertaking—foolhardy, because there’s nothing to find—but it’s ambitious. You see, Team Kimberlin has already run afoul of the GIGO principle: garbage in, garbage out.

OK, what do I mean by garbage in? Consider these bits of data:forgedTwitterIPThe account_id is the correct one for @Kimberlinunmask. However, the login time is on 24 December, 2013. The @Kimberlinumask account was suspended on that day, and it’s not possible to login to a gulaged account.

While it’s not quite as obviously stupid a submitting two versions of the same document to the same court in the same case or as mind-bogglingly crude as failing to remove a PACER legend and using the wrong typeface to create a do-it-yourself court summons, it is … well … it’s kinda amateurish.

#Garbage_Out

* * * * *

The incompetent navigation guiding The Dread Deadbeat Pirate Kimberlin’s ship of fools keeps running aground on the Rocks of Reality. The Truth is not their friend.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One of the recurring false narratives peddled by Brett Kimberlin is the fake news that he has no connection to Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread and that Matt Osborne and Bill Schmalfeldt are independent journalists (or real journalists, for that matter). He even tried to use that myth as a wedge to get the protective order granted in the Kimberlin v. Frey RICO Remnant LOLsuit modified. This post titled #BrettKimberlin Whines About Discovery from three years ago today dealt with that futile motion.

* * * * *

He’s upset because he can’t share confidential information received from Patrick Frey with Bill Schmalfeldt and Matt Osborne as he did with the sealeddiscovery in the 2012 Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. case. He’s filed this in the Kimberlin v. Frey RICO Remnant LOLsuit. The exhibits are really howlers.

Excuse me while I pop some more popcorn.

* * * * *

There’s a rule of management that says that first-rate bosses hire first-rate people and that second-rate bosses hire third-rate people. That may help explain how The Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin wound up with a fifth-rate staff.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Matt Osborne has wandered back into the news. He’s been quoted in the NYT as admitting to being a part of the Dry Alabama fake Russian bot scam that tried influence the recent special senatorial election in Alabama. Of course, Osborne is no stranger to spinning false narratives given his work as a writer and editor with Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread. This post from five years ago today called Silly Question Du Jour dealt with one Osborne’s false stories back when he was hiding behind the nom de cyber of Xenophon.

* * * * *

Xenophon (the Troll) has another of his wacko posts up at Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it.) in which he tries to connect me to various nefarious activities on the Interwebz.BU20140109Perhaps I should. By whom?

So far as I know, the only person who would be in a position to ask me questions in court would be The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin. (Bill Schmalfeldt might get a crack at me if I’m called as a witness at one of his trials. However, given the evidence that could be introduced from the record of the peace order extension hearing, my testimony might not be required. But I digress.) Why would Kimberlin think that questions about alleged interactions between me and Matt Osborne, William Ferguson, or Alex Brant-Zawadzki might be germane to either the state Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. lawsuit or the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness? Is TDPK teamed with these folks? If he is, that would go toward proving the existence of Team Kimberlin, but, since TDPK’s suits claim that merely saying that Team Kimberlin exists defames him, he might not want to go down that path.

I have no knowledge of any of the stuff Xenophon has written about, but if TDPK wants to question me about the material in that post, I’d be happy to take his questions on the witness stand under oath. He would be opening the door to very interesting lines of inquiry by the defendants. He could expect some interesting related questions when he testifies in the RICO suit. (He isn’t banned from testifying in federal court.)

Oh, one more thing … I’ve never claimed to be a dramaturge, but I am a trained voice actor, and I am familiar with The Wasps. Thus, I’ll leave Xenophon with these words from Xanthias:

Your dream stinks vilely of old leather.

* * * * *

There still has been no comment from Osborne’s buddies at Protect Our Elections/EMPR concerning election integrity issues and the Dry Alabama scam. However, a zombie commenter to one of yesterday’s posts has shared this link to a Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread post of an article Osborne published on LinkedIn. (The Gentle Reader may remember that the funding for the Dry Alabama scam came from the founder of LinkedIn.). Of course one can’t say for sure, but the reposting of that article certainly gives the appearance of endorsement of Osborne and his election interference by Team Kimberlin.

UPDATE—Oh, I see Mr. DownTwinkles is back. These posts must be getting under someone’s skin.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Every once in a while, Team Kimberlin does something that provides a rich vein to mine for pointage, laughery, and mockification. The TKPOTD from five years ago dealt with it a post that Bunny Boy (aka Matt Osborne) published at Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Boy Unread that resulted in the first BLOGSMOKE episode and a multi-year feature here at Hogewash!.

*snort* *giggle*

Xenophon (the Troll) makes a lame attempt at ironic humor over at Breitbart Unmasked with a post (No, I won’t link to it) trying to cast me as the Internet Sheriff of Twitter Town. It has a sort of Blogsmoke theme.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Yesterday, I spent the morning listening to lawyers for a civil rights law clinic and a “constitutional advocacy” not-for-profit spin what seemed to be a set of false narratives in order to attack the civil rights of bloggers and other media people to freedom of speech and freedom of the press. I don’t have much patience with such behavior, especially after being on the receiving end of multiple LOLsuits from Team Kimberlin aimed at suppressing my free speech.

In my case, Team Kimberlin has not limited their false narratives to court filings. The TKPOTD from three years ago today dealt with one of their sillier attempts to smear me via a fictitious post at Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread.

* * * * *

Most of the posts that have been memory-holed by Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Boy Unread are from the era when Bill Schmalfeldt was editor. Indeed, so much of the Cabin Boy’s™ work has been trashed, he’d be an unperson were it not for some of his recent comments to Bunny Boy’s posts.

OTOH, one can understand the embarrassment (and potential liabilities) that could stem from having posts like this on one’s website.BU20130415bombthreatThe post not only misrepresented Aaron Walker’s comment on the Boston Marathon Bombing, Team Kimberlin tried use the comment section to spin a tale connecting me to a bomb threat to a Carroll County courthouse. The following comment by “Texas Tim” took the post way over the top.

TexasTim
The Maryland/FBI Fusion Center is working overtime tonight and Aaron Walker and his patsy William Hoge would be naive to think that they are not getting a real hard look after what happened in Carroll County at 8:30 am this morning. Someone called the county saying that a bomb had been placed outside the Courthouse. This caused the District and Circuit courts to be evacuated and shut down for the entire day while bomb teams searched the area.

So what is making the Fusion Center focus on Walker and Hoge? Well, Hoge’s criminal charges against Rauhauser, Schmalfeldt and Kimberlin were scheduled to be dismissed at 9:00 am in that very Carroll County Courthouse. This, combined with Hoge/Walker’s recent attack on Howard County prosecutors, has some in the intel/LE community convinced that they are behind the bomb threat in order to get back at the Carroll County judges and prosecutors.

Walker and Hoge have a history of attacking anyone who does not agree with them, even for the smallest slight. Well, now that MO is coming back to haunt them.

And to think that Mr. Hoge was not even in the intel database a year ago…..

In fact, the Carroll County bomb threat was made by a Pennsylvania woman who had a court date for driving without a license. Carroll County Sheriff’s detectives quickly identified her, and she was arrested by police in Pennsylvania.

straight jacketAs bizarre as the Texas Tim comment seems, it’s really no more wacky that any of Brett Kimberlin’s other claims about Aaron Walker or me. According to his latest hallucinations, I’ve moved from being on that intelligence watch list to being an intelligence operative or contractor tasked with watching him.

I couldn’t make that kind of stuff up if I tried.

* * * * *

Lying liars gotta lie.

And incompetent liars gotta get caught.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Throughout The Saga of Team Kimberlin, one common thread has been pointage, laughery, and mockification of The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s inept lawfare and his “reporters” (at sites such as Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread) ludicrous attempts to put a positive spin on those failed LOLsuits. Take the TKPOTD from three years ago as an example—

* * * * *

Here’s another post that has been memory-holed over at Bretibart Unmasked Bunny Boy UnreadBU20121206wingnutsThe post celebrates the dismissal of the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. suit filed in Virginia against The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin. Indeed, Kimberlin did win a couple of suits filed against him in 2012, but he lost everything he filed against anyone in 2012, and he’s lost everything else he’s filed that has been decided since then.

Kimberlin v. Walker (I) peace order petition—Denied

Kimberlin v. Walker (II) peace order petition—Denied

Kimberlin v. Norton peace order petition—Denied

Kimberlin v, Walker, et al. nuisance LOLsuit—Summary Judgment and Directed Verdict for Defendants Walker, McCain, Ali, and Hoge

Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club, et al. (I) RICO Madness LOLsuit—Dismissed against Defendants National Bloggers Club, Ali, McCain, Walker, Malkin, Twitchy, Erickson, RedState, Beck, Mercury Radio Arts, The Blaze, Nagy, Stranahan, Backer, DB Capitol Service, Breitbart, Ace of Spades, and Hoge and Partially Dismissed against Defendant Frey. Appeal to the Fourth Circuit—Denied

Kimberlin v. Hoge peace order petition—Denied

Kimberlin v. Home Depot—Dismissed

Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club (II) RICO Retread LOLsuit—Dismissed against Defendants Breitbart, Malkin, Twitchy, Beck, Mercury Radio Arts, and The Blaze

Also, all the criminal charges that TDPK has tried for file against either Aaron Walker or me have been thrown out.

wingnutIt’s seems that we wingnuts who have been predicting the failure of Brett Kimberlin’s lawfare have a pretty good track record. Since 2012, he’s batting 0.000, and we’re batting 1.000. TDPK may get a few hits before the game gets called, but he’s still going to lose more that he wins going forward.

If I weren’t one of the targets of his lawfare, I might find this more amusing.

Stay tuned.

UPDATE—The scrapbook of more recent events would include this:

* * * * *

All of the LOLsuit Kimberlin filed since that post was written have failed as well, as have The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt’s LOLsuits I through VIII and his peace order petition against Patrick Grady.

Losing losers gotta lose.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Matt Osborne (aka Bunny Boy, 57F Osborne) has spent a good deal of his time as a member of Team Kimberlin trying to sell various lies in support of Brett Kimberlin’s false narratives. After Kimberlin contacted Stacy McCain’s wife’s employer (a private boarding school) in 2012, Stacy felt is was necessary to move his family to a new, confidential location for their safety and the school’s. (The Gentle Reader should remember that this was during the period when Mike Stack, Patrick Frey, Erick Erickson, and Aaron Walker were SWATted.) Stacy asked for help with moving expenses, and many of his readers hit his tip jar. Team Kimberlin tried to spin that request for moving help as a scam, claiming that the McCain family had never moved. Even a year later, Bunny Boy was still trying to peddle that story. I pointed out his lie in this Prevarication Du Jour that ran five years ago today.

* * * * *

Matt Osborne is still trying to peddle the lie that Stacy McCain lives on a private school compound in Hagerstown, Maryland. This is from a post over at his Osborne Ink site (No, I won’t link to it.).OsborneInk 20131024I have been to Stacy McCain’s house. It is not in Maryland. Period.

Stacy really did move his family from Hagerstown almost a year-and-a-half ago. I was one of the people who contributed money to help with the move. Neither I nor any of the other donors who hit his tip jar to help with the move was defrauded, the bogus scenario spun by Team Kimberlin not withstanding.

Fail.

* * * * *

The place Stacy initially found was really too small for his family, so he has since moved on to another undisclosed location.

BTW, the fact that The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin was never able to serve court papers on Stacy at his old address should have been a clue that he had moved. Also, TDPK’s continued insistence that Stacy lived in Maryland was one of the reason his RICO Madness LOLsuit was dismissed. This is from Judge Hazel’s Order dismissing the case–

Nothing proceeds as Team Kimberlin hallucinates.

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


Team Kimberlin is really just a collection of inept, untalented losers. Their efforts to spin false narratives to support their cause invariably wind up be sources of pointage, laughery, and mockification when confronted with the facts. This Prevarication Du Jour from four years ago today is a fairly typical example.

* * * * *

@wmsdb201410080009ZThe Cabin Boy is almost correct—in one sense. The metaphorical beatdown that we administered to The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit was delivered without our having to bestir ourselves to put on a defense. All we had to do was let TDPK engaged in self-destruction.
Docket 235_236

The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s level of desperation is summed up by his having to rely on the likes of Bill Schmalfeldt or Matt Osborne as his PR flacks.

Bonus Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Bunny Boy, aka Matt Osborne, aka 57F Osborne, is another one of the gang of failures who make up Team Kimberlin. This TKPOTD from four years ago today engages in pointage, laughery, and mockification at his expense.

* * * * *

The most recent member of Team Kimberlin to be stuck with the job of editing Kimberlin’s propaganda website Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it.) is Matt Osborne. Since a principal duty of that gig seems to be helping Team Kimberlin dig even deeper holes for themselves in their lawfare, Bunny Boy has been assigned as the Team Kimberlin grave digger and is carried on the roster as 57F Osborne.

While I was reviewing the 50+ posts mentioning me over at Breitbart Unmasked, I found one from 3 September, 2013, that is a wonderful example of Osborne’s cocksure wrongheadedness. He called it We Are Criswell, and it made wildly inaccurate predictions about the lawsuit that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin had filed against Aaron Walker, Stacy McCain, Ali Akbar, Kimberlin Unmasked, and me in Montgomery County Circuit Court. Back in the ’50s, the real Amazing Criswell was a local TV huckster in LA who sold “Criswell’s Family Vitamins” on infomercials during which he claimed to be a psychic. He was best known for his wildly inaccurate predictions. However, the real Criswell, who occasionally got something right, had a much better record than Osborne—who got everything wrong.

My codefendants and I did not wind up facing “numerous lawsuits in the months to come.” TDPK has tried for a second bite of the apple with his RICO Madness, but that is now looking to be an even bigger disaster for him.

We haven’t had our “asses hauled before a judge and jury to examine their fund raising frauds, tax violations, schemes, and scams.” TDPK hasn’t alleged any tax violations in either suit, and he has been unable to show any of the elements of fraud in either case.

When the case did come to court, we didn’t “lose because they have given Mr. Kimberlin more than enough evidence to prove malice.” TDPK was way short of enough evidence; indeed, the judge told him that he essentially had none.

OTOH, 57F Osborne assuming the Criswell personality for his predictions makes some ironic sense when one considers that The Amazing Criswell is probably best known for his appearance in the worst movie ever made, Plan 9 from Outer Space.

* * * * *

Hogewash! took another poke at Bunny Boy a bit later that very same day with an I’m Not Making This Up, You Know post.

* * * * *

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.

In a way, it makes sense that a failed historian would be a failed prognosticator.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Team Kimberlin is predictably vain and stupidly so. The Gentle Reader may remember that Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Brett Unread has been quiet for the past three months. The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin has been unable to find the time to deal with any of that unimportant news that’s been cluttering the Interwebz since mid April. But yesterday, a story too important to ignore hit.

After TDPK’s hearing about the Maryland Court of Appeals decision in the Walker v. Maryland, et al. case, a story (No, I won’t link to it.) was hurriedly published at BU. Of course, the post is a mostly inaccurate representation of what has happened, but it’s the comments following the post that are the real hoot with their silly disconnection from reality. I particularly enjoyed this one:LMAO! It’s almost as if they run that site for the sole purpose of being the objects of pointage, laughery, and mockification.

The Dread Deadbeat Pirate/Pro-Se/Publisher/Perofrmer/Prevaricator/Pedo Kimberlin and his crew should have cut there losses and quit. I’m not through with them yet.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


While we’re waiting for the Maryland Court of Special Appeals to rule in Aaron Walker’s appeal in the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit, I’ve been recycling Team Kimberlin related post on most days. The recycled post are generally from the same date one, two, three, four, five, or six years before. Yesterday was the fifth anniversary of the first court hearing in matters related to the Kimberlins’ marital difficulties, and I chose to run a different post. Hogewash! isn’t a checkout aisle tabloid, and I avoid such topics unless they are absolutely necessary to properly tell a story about something else. Today’s recycled post from 10 July, 2013, mentions the Kimberlins’ difficulties tangentially.

* * * * *

It has been noised about on the Interwebs that I celebrate adultery or that this blog does. That is not true.

I take what God says about it seriously. I don’t encourage it. I don’t support it. I don’t celebrate it.

I also rarely talk or write about it. This blog isn’t about tabloid journalism. Adultery happens and is sometimes a driving factor in a story, but adultery per se is not a focus of this blog.

UPDATE—An anonymous coward from Team Kimberlin wishes to preach to me:TK20130710aYes, my son is overweight. The problem stems from a side effect of a drug he was taking for serious medical condition. He is now on a different regimen and has lost a significant amount of weight.

The anonymous coward preaches on …
TK20130710bHaughty eyes. Would that be like assuming you’re enough smarter than the average bear so that getting caught is simply bad luck?

A lying tongue. Is that kinda like perjury?

Hands that shed innocent blood. Could that blood come from a man’s leg after it had been blown off by a hidden time bomb?

A heart that devises wicked plans. Like smuggling contraband drugs, or plotting murder of a prosecutor, or lying about selling drugs to a political candidate, or … ?

Feet that make haste to run to evil. Like a recurring habit of stalking one’s critics and enemies?

A witness who breathes out lies. Like a guy who testifies that he did not engage in behavior for which there is clear documentation that he did?

One who sows discord among brothers. Like someone who falsely accuses his wife of mental illness in front of her children?

No, I haven’t forgotten that passage from Proverbs, and I think that it tells us a great deal about God’s sense of justice.

A stone is heavy,
and sand is a burden;
but a fool’s provocation is heavier than both.
—Proverbs 27:3

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Three years ago, Karoli Kuns joined in Team Kimberlin’s effort to spin a false narrative about me and my interactions with Bill Schmalfeldt. That resulted in a chain of posts three years ago today that began with this one.

* * * * *

I see that Karoli Kuns has a long piece up at Crooks and Liars. Clearly, it was not subjected to fact checking. Consider this typical paragraph which I will fisk:

To a large extent, it succeeded. Hoge filed numerous requests for peace orders which were routinely rejected by the Court. [I filed two.] After they were denied, Hoge appealed. [Only the first one.] Finally, Hoge scored on appeal and found a sympathetic ear in Judge Thomas Stansfield of Carroll County, who had no experience with online social networks or blogs. Judge Stansfield granted Hoge his peace order under Maryland’s domestic violence laws. [No. The peace order was granted under a Courts & Judicial Procedures statute. Protective orders, which are not the same thing, are granted under a Family Law article.] Schmalfeldt was ordered not to contact Hoge at work [No. The order does not mention my workplace because I was retired at the time it was issued.] or contact him by phone. (None of these things had ever happened or could happen because Schmalfeldt does not have the physical ability or desire to visit Hoge anywhere at any time.) He was also barred from contacting Hoge via email. [He is prohibited from contacting (by any means), attempting to contact, or harassing me.]

I’ve been told that accuracy in reporting has never been Karoli’s strong suit. After reading stuff like this, I’m inclined to believe that characterization.

She is no more accurate in her description of the state of the law in Maryland.

But Maryland also needs to evaluate how they’ve structured their peace order process. A simple refinement to the law which limited peace order requests to those where there was an established domestic relationship or closer physical proximity would have eliminated this problem and ended a lot of stress and aggravation for Schmalfeldt. As it stands now, any Maryland citizen can invent the idea that a criminal act has been committed against them online, take that idea to the courthouse and turn it into a peace order. This entraps people in a litigation net who do not belong there while depriving them of the same protections other citizens receive.

In fact, Maryland has two different procedures for dealing with conflicts outside of the criminal justice system. The first, Protective Orders, deals conflicts between family members or domestic partners. This is what Brett Kimberlin sought to use against his wife, unsuccessfully in the end.

The second, Peace Orders, deals with conflict between non-related parties. To obtain a peace order, one must prove (to the “clear and convincing” standard) to a judge during an adversarial hearing that one is the victim of one or more of a specified list of crimes. In my case against Schmalfeldt that was harassment. Harassment via the Internet is harassment. There is not an exception because blogs or Twitter were used.

I am not amused by this either.

sir robin shieldUPDATE—Karoli has taken down comments to her post that relate to the actual facts of the situation with Bill Schmalfeldt, and she has announce that she will not permit any more such comments. She claims that her post is really about how screwed up Maryland’s laws are. If they were as she describes them, I would probably agree. However, she does not correctly describe Maryland’s Peace Order stature or how it works.

Not only does she have her facts wrong, she has her facts about the law wrong.

* * * * *

That post prompted Matt Osborne to butt in and me to post this in response to him.

* * * * *

Matt Osborne attempted to comment here at Hogewash!:MO201404271221ZI did and found these questions which I present with my answers.OsborneEmailWhy do I get the feeling that this is not a benign inquiry?

UPDATE—MO201404271300ZSome questions are so nonsensical that they do not deserve an answer, but I’ll make an exception for this one.

What Matt Osborne is lamely trying to do is appeal to everyone’s inherent sense of justice. Human beings are wired to favor fairness, and, of course, it would be unfair for me to engage in sadistic harassment. One of the problems with the question is its being based on the false premise that I am the harasser in the Hoge/Schmalfeldt interaction.

There is an important theological problem with Osborne’s question as well, and I intend to deal with it in a longer post later today.

Stay tuned.

* * * * *

And I wrote about that theological problem in this post called On Justice.

* * * * *

“No fair!”

Every one of us has said it beginning from the time we were small children. Human beings seem to be wired with a predisposition to fairness. Indeed, evolutionary psychologists like Jonathan Haidt believe that the moral sense of fairness is a universal human trait. Outrage is a normal, heathy response to unfair treatment. We want the world to be set to rights. We want justice in what seems to be an unjust world.

As a Christian, I believe that the source of justice is God. It says in Genesis that we were created in His image, so it makes sense to me that more we allow ourselves to be led by the Holy Spirit to be what God intends for us to be, the more we would desire justice. Sometimes Christians are called to deal with the grander problems of the world—think of William Wilberforce, Desmond Tutu, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and Martin Luther King, Jr.—but, most of the the time, most of us deal with the seemingly smaller injustices of the world. Sometimes a Christian is called to stand up to a bully.

Bill Schmalfeldt is a such a bully. For years, he has harassed others on the Internet, and no one was able to bring him to justice. That task seems to have fallen to me.

Schmalfeldt’s surprised reaction has been to whine, “No fair! You hit me back.” However, even that’s not strictly true. I haven’t taken personal revenge on him. I’ve reported him to the proper authorities and left any action taken to them.

The real question I face is not what Jesus thinks of my allegedly sadistic treatment of Bill Schmalfeldt. That question is based in the false premise that I am the sadist in the interactions between us. No, the real question is what Jesus would think of my failure to stand up a thug like Schmalffeldt who is bullying others.

Has my response to Schmalfeldt been perfect? Probably not. But my conscience is clear. It would not be if I had failed to step in between him and some of his victims.

* * * * *

I’m not done with him yet.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Three years ago today, there was a hearing in the District Court for Montgomery County on the peace order petition The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin filed against me falsely accusing me of harassing Tetyana Kimberlin’s elder daughter. We’ll review several posts from that day, beginning with one titled Qapla’.

* * * * *

The peace order was denied. More later when I get back home.

* * * * *

I followed that post up with one titled Today in Court: #BrettKimberlin’s Case.

* * * * *

I’m going to do my writeup of today’s peace order hearing two parts. The first will deal with what happened before the lunch break while Brett Kimberlin was putting on his case. A second post will deal with my response. For a more detailed legal analysis of the case, check out Aaron Walker’s post.

As a preliminary matter, my lawyer raised the issue of Kimberlin being unable to testify in a Maryland court because of his previous perjury conviction. The back-and-forth over that burned up about ten or fifteen minutes and ended with Judge Williams ruling that Kimberlin could not testify.

Kimberlin made an opening statement outlining what he planned to prove with the evidence and testimony of others. During that opening statement he told several lies. One was that I attended a hearing relating to a mental health petition he had filed against his wife. I did not. On 9 July, 2013, I attended a hearing which dealt with protective orders that the Kimberlins had filed against each other. At the end of that hearing, Mrs. Kimberlin was detained. I left the courtroom while she was still in handcuffs but later found out that she was held because of a surprise mental health petition Kimberlin had filed. The judge released her and denied the petition within a few minutes.

Kimberlin also lied by claiming that I had approached his wife and offered her “things of value.” In fact, our first contact came when she approached me in a restaurant while I was waiting to meet someone else. While I was among a group of people who offered her assistance and paid for a lawyer to represent her in a hearing, I didn’t offer her anything of value to do anything for me or at my direction.

Kimberlin also said during his opening statement that I am “Paul Krendler.” I am not.

Kimberlin then called his first witness—Aaron Walker. Aaron’s testimony did not go well for the Petitioner. Aaron wound up testifying about the various claims of defamation that Kimberlin had made in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit and the fact that my codefendants and I won the case on summary judgments and directed verdicts.

Next, Kimberlin called his daughter, the nominal petitioner, to the stand. She testified that she had been bullied at school and that when she had changed schools, her fellow students had googled her and found out about her father and ostracized her. Kimberlin tried to bring in the issue of his being called a pedophile through her testimony. At that point, the hearing had been going on for an hour, mostly because of non-germane points Kimberlin kept raising. The judge had had enough. He told Kimberlin—

I’ve given you some latitude. That. Is. Done.

Kimberlin rested his case, and the judge ordered a lunch break.

Stay tuned for Part Two.

* * * * *

I never got around to posting Part Two. Instead, I posted this Prevarication Du Jour in response to the false reporting on the case by Team Kimberlin.

* * * * *

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?

* * * * *

Qapla’ indeed.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Matt Osborne is even more stupid than I thought. After being caught redhanded publishing lies when he was editor of Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Boy Unread and having to spend a year or so dodging being held legally and morally accountable for his actions, he tried to respond to yesterday’s TKPOTD with this comment.That YouTube link goes to an illegal posting of courtroom audio from Brett Kimberlin’s failed appeal of his 2015 peace order petition against me. (Courtroom audio provided by a Maryland Court Clerk’s Technical Services is may not be broadcast or posted online.) Osborne deceitfully characterizes Judge Creighton’s comments that he posted as directed specifically to me. They were not—as can be seen on pages 95 and 96 of the transcript.

Read the whole transcript and see how pitiful The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s case was and how Tetyana Kimberlin’s teenage daughter had to try to make his case for him when the judge wouldn’t let him practice law without a license.

Oh, one more thing—William Ferguson also tried to comment. His self-mockery continues.

UPDATE—It must have frustrated Bunny Boy that his comment didn’t make through moderation. Osborne has me blocked on Twitter, but I’m told that he’s bravely tweeted a link to that YouTube clip from behind that block.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


It was three years ago today that the first of several false articles accusing me of harassing Tetyana Kimberlin’s elder daughter were published by Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Brett Unread. This Prevarication Du Jour was my initial reaction.

* * * * *

Matt Osborne has published a blatantly false and defamatory article over at Breitbart Unmasked (safe link) titled William Hoge Stalking A Teenager For His Conspiracy Theory. This paragraph is among the most egregious.BU20150304

Mrs. Kimberlin’s Application for Statement of Charges (available here) does not allege anything about a bomb factory or BDSM. Osborne’s assertions are utter rubbish. More important, they are lies.

The list of additional false statement in the post includes, but is not limited to—

That I have stalked Kelsie Kimberlin.
That I have taken any action with respect to Ms. Kimberlin’s music career.
That the process server employed by my lawyer was sent to photograph Brett Kimberlin.

Matt Osborne owes the truth to what few readers he has. He needs to back up the assertions in William Hoge Stalking A Teenager For His Conspiracy Theory with documentary evidence or he must retract them and apologize. He should do so not later than midnight Saturday Eastern Time.

Finally, because Breitbart Unmasked does not publish a snail mail address, I hereby notify Breitbart Unmasked and Matt Osborne that they should preserve all documents, records, files, etc., relating to me personally, the Hogewash! blog, Brett Kimberlin, and/or Kelsie Kimberlin that may be in their possession or under their control.

* * * * *

The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin’s pathetic attempt to use his PR rag to smear me quickly spun out of control. In the end, his ill-conceived attack was surely more trouble than it was worth.

And I’m not done with him yet.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Yesterday’s TKPOTD dealt with the mind-bogglingly incompetence of Team Kimberlin’s PR effort in support of their campaign of lawfare. It included the TKPOTD from three years ago yesterday. Today, we’ll stay with the same theme and present the post from three years ago today.

* * * * *

Yesterday’s TKPOD presented some golden oldie tweets from members of Team Kimberlin in which they made fools of themselves forecasting the results of their lawfare. Here are some more 2013 howlers from the Team. TK2013tweets_aThe first is Bill Schmalfeldt’s announcement that he would put up an obscene picture with my face photoshopped into it in retaliation for the photographer who owns the copyright to the headshot I use on the Hogewash! About page filing a DMCA takedown notice against the Cabin Boy’s™ infringing use of the image. That tweet was massively useful in convincing the powers-that-be that the Cabin Boy™ was likely to continue harassing me and that the first peace order should be extended.

The second is an exchange between Bunny Boy and Stacy McCain. Osborne was trying to float the idea that Stacy hit on Tetyana Kimberlin when a group of us had lunch together following one of the hearings about the dueling protective orders between her and her husband. He was also trying to keep the rumor that Mrs. Kimberlin is mentally ill alive. Both allegations are pure BS.

The third is the Cabin Boy’s™ wishful thinking concerning the outcome of the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit and/or the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness. So far, The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin is the only one who has lost anything, although he has not yet paid the sanction owed because of his attempt to diddle with discovery in the Walker, et al. suit. I still have my house, and Brett Kimberlin still lives in his mother’s basement. And I am not the one whose wife has left him.

Foolishness. Crassness. Ugliness. That’s Team Kimberlin. Oh, yeah, and stupidity.

* * * * *

Peter Ingemi (Da Tech Guy) interviewed me on video at CPAC back in 2013. The Cabin Boy™ has lifted frames out that piece and used the images without permission. Schmalfeldt used one of those images in the obscene picture cited above. While we were talking this weekend at CPAC, Peter mentioned that he had been pleased when Schmalfeldt had taken down the obscene image. When I told him about the continuing use of some of the frames from his video at Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Brett Unread and other of the Cabin Boy’s™ sites, he harrumphed and said, “So Schmalfeldt’s a liar.”

Yep.

And Team Kimberlin’s lies, their estrangement from the Truth, is why they’re doomed to fail.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The drudgery of dealing with the hassle of the various Team Kimberli LOLsuits has been offset by the laughter induced by their incompetence. As the TKPOTD from three years ago today shows, they’ve never done a credible PR job for their side.

* * * * *

One of the more amusing things about dealing with Team Kimberlin is the way that they continually make fools of themselves with their pronouncements about the course of their lawfare. Consider these golden oldie tweets from 2013.TK2013tweetsYeah, Matt, that pro bono lawyer did such a “half-assed” job that five of the seven counts of The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s nuisance lawsuit were thrown out at summary judgment, and the two remaining counts never made it to the jury because they were thrown out on a directed verdict in my codefendants’ and my favor. Who lost badly?

Yeah, John V (as retweeted by Bunny Boy), I’m full of empty threats. Just ask the Cabin Boy™.

Yeah, Neal, Kimberlin should have had a lawyer, so why didn’t he get one? After all, two of his associates in JTMP/VRUS are lawyers. Perhaps it was because his case was nonsense, and no lawyer was willing to risk sanctions or his law license by signing on to the patently false claims in Kimberlin’s suit.

popcorn4bkTeam Kimberlin never seems to learn. Very Ordinary Seaman Ferguson and 57F Osborne have been blithering about recent events on Twitter. And getting things wrong. I wonder if they think that more than a handful of people believe anything they tweet?

#Losers

* * * * *

I should probably amend that last question to ask if they think that anyone believes them anymore.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The lawfare portion of The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s flailing attempt at brass knuckles reputation management has been both a pain in the neck (or a couple of feet lower) and a rich source of pointage, laughery, and mockification. However, it really hasn’t held a candle to the incompetence of his PR effort, the crown jewel of which has been Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Brett Unread, but at one point, there was a BU post so shocking that the Hogewash! coverage of it was titled BREAKING: Xenophon Tells the Truth. (Xenophon is one of the pen names Matt Osborne has used.)

* * * * *

In a surprising twist Xenophon the Troll finally tells the truth in a post at Breitbart Unmasked(No, I won’t link to it.) about The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s vexatious lawsuits against bloggers and media entities. In a prolonged screed about Paul Alan Levy’s representation of anonymous blogger Ace of Spades in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness, Xenophon writes— BU20140221bYep. As TDPK has claimed, donations from big-time leftwing contributors are drying up for his not-for-profits. For example, the Threshold Foundation had given Velvet Revolution grants totaling as much as $65k a year, but it has zeroed out its support.

It was leftwing blogger Seth Allen who first shined some light on Brett Kimberlin’s current activities. The fact that it was mostly the right half of the blogosphere that rallied to Allen’s defense allowed TDPK to paint resistance to his lawfare as persecution from the right.

That dog won’t hunt anymore. Ken White, Zoa Barnes, and Paul Alan Levy are not rightwing nut jobs, but they have all provided pro bono legal help to victims of Team Kimberlin. The ACLU, which is also helping in Ace’s defense, is rarely thought of as a rightwing organization.

Because of the extra publicity stirred up by TDPK’s frivolous lawsuits, good people on the left are realizing what kind of person Brett Kimberlin is, and they are deciding that they have better things to do with their money than supporting his unprofitable not-for-profits. The Streisand Effect blowback putting a real crimp in his business model.

Team Kimberlin haz sad. I expect them to act out even more outrageously before things are settled.BU20140221a

On advice of counsel, I won’t reply with a Clint Eastwood quote.

* * * * *

Speaking of Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Brett Unread, it doesn’t look like they bothered to publish anything for more than a week.

Oh, and speaking of following the money—the 2016 IRS Form 990s for TDPK’s not-for-profits aren’t online yet. They will probably be in the last batch of 2016 forms released after being processed by the IRS. Kimberlin has always filed that sort of paperwork at the last minute, but a man’s got to be aware of his limitations.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Alinksy’s Rule 5 states that “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon,” and pointage, laughery, and mockification have been key tools in confronting Team Kimberlin’s lawfare. Take Exhibit J from four years ago today for example.

* * * * *

I normally would save something like the following for a Team Kimberlin Post of the Day, but I’ve been laughing so hard and shaking my head for so long over this one that I’m going to share it now.

I’ve been slogging my way through The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s responses to four of the motions to dismiss the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness. In paragraph 23 of his Response to Defendant DB Capitol Strategies Motion to Dismiss TDPK tries to allege that DB Capitol Strategies was engaging in fraud because it operated a legal fund in support of Aaron Walker’s suits against Brett Kimberlin in 2012. He cites as evidence his Exhibit J, a blog post from Crooks and Liars.Exhibit JThe best “evidence” he can come up with an unsourced blog post by Matt Osborne, Alex Brant-Zawadzki, Bill Schmalfeldt, and Melissa Brewer?

#ROTFL

* * * * *

In the end, The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s inept court filings were not only occasionally comic, they’ve been total failures. Of the dozen civil cases he’s filed since the beginning of 2012, only two survived motions to dismiss. Of those two, the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. trial was terminated in the defendants’ favor because TDPK failed to state a case that could go to a jury, and the Kimberlin v. Hoge peace order petition was denied because he could not show that I had engaged in harassment of Tetyana Kimberlin’s daughter.

Failing failures gotta fail.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


For all the practice they’ve had, Team Kimberlin is amazingly inept at cyberthuggery. After I posted a Legal LULZ Du Jour a couple of years ago today that engaged in pointage, laughery, and mockification of the Cabin Boy™ for having several Twitter account suspended, I received the comment documented below. I wrote about it in a post called Hit a Nerve, Have We?

* * * * *

An anonymous coward sent this comment—TK201512212015Z

Here’s the image that the comment links to (I wouldn’t want the Gentle Reader to miss anything)—Screen-Shot-2013-03-20-at-8.46.14-PM-700x336

The URL for the link is brietbartunmasked dot com/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/Screen-Shot-2013-03-20-at-8.46.14-PM-700×336.png, but that’s not the original URL for the image. Originally, it was found at  brietbartunmasked dot com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/Screen-Shot-2013-03-20-at-8.46.14-PM-700×336.png. It had been posted there by the Cabin Boy™ when he was editor of Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Boy Unread, but if you try to find it using the original URL, you’ll get a 404.BUScreenShot404That’s probably because Matt Osborne has tried to memory-hole as much of Schmalfeldt’s defamatory or otherwise embarrassing material as he can find. Here’s a snippet of the original “Liberal Grouch” post that used the image.BU20130322I’ll leave it to the Gentle Reader to theorize about how and why the image was reposted and about who might have sent the comment.

And, yeah, the backups are really that extensive.

UPDATE—And Bunny Boy has memory-holed the image linked to in the comment.

* * * * *

The image is a frame from a video about me posted by my friend and fellow blogger Peter Ingemi (Da Tech Guy). Schmalfeldt used my face cropped out of the frame in one of the homoerotic porn images he posted in 2013. I guess the Cabin Boy™ thinks that picture of me with my mouth opened wide during a conversation is supposed to bother me. Meh. It looks a bit silly out of context. So what? Using it makes someone look stupid, but that someone isn’t me.

OTOH, the images that I’ve been sent (but never published) of my wife’s face crudely photoshopped into unflattering or pornographic images were offensive, as were the multiple copies of a still from Psycho of Norman Bates’ mummified mother labeled as my wife. I began receiving then after she was diagnosed with stage four cancer.

Gentle Reader, I write about those images not to complain or to seek sympathy, but to bluntly describe the depravity of these punks.

I’m not done with them yet.
