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.

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.

Here’s how we would have done it back when I was working in radio—

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.
