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.

An important clue in one Sherlock Holmes story was a dog that didn’t bark. Three years ago today, we had a Blogsmoke episode that didn’t post. Blogsmoke in Court was posted instead.

* * * * *

Rather that post an episode today, I’ve decided to post this bit of my testimony from The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s examination of me when he called me as his witness during the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. trial. (I was called by both sides.)

MR. KIMBERLIN: Do you, on your blog, ah, do you have a character, an Internet sheriff? Blogsmoke?

MR. HOGE: Ah, yes. Um, a website that I believe is associated with you called Breitbart Unmasked, ah, did a satirical piece about me trying to cast me as somebody who was the Internet sheriff and, ah, used the term Blogsmoke, so I in return stated a feature that is a takeoff on the Gunsmoke radio program, uh, that was on in the ‘50s. And yes —

MR. KIMBERLIN: You kind of consider yourself an Internet sheriff.

MR. HOGE: No, I don’t. I consider that a way of poking fun at the people at Breitbart Unmasked by taking their idea and running with it and having a running gag that’s lasted for about two-and-a-half years now.

MR. KIMBERLIN: You also consider yourself a Star Wars hero.

MR. HOGE: (Laughing) Not in the least.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Have you ever posted graphics or photos of yourself as a Star Wars hero?

MR. HOGE: I have, people have sent me graphics of my face to replace, um, who’s the guy who played Obi-wan Kenobi, the older fellow, um, this is what happens when you’re old, um, Alec Guinness, Sir Alec Guinness, with my face instead of Alec Guinness’ as Obi-wan in various cartoons. I think they’re funny, and I’ve posted a few that were sent to me, and other people have picked up on that as well and sort of run with it. It’s, it’s something of a running gag in certain quarters of the Internet.

I couldn’t make that up no matter how hard I tried.

* * * * *

It seems that I wasn’t the witness that Kimberlin was searching for. Or did I rely on some sort of Jedi mind trick?

Whatever.

Everything proceeded as I had foreseen.

JOHN: I’m told that 57F Osborne (aka Bunny Boy, aka Xenophon) has a post up at Breitbart Unmasked that suggests I need a new hobby. Bunny Boy has given me advice in the past, and when I’ve acted on it, things didn’t go as he suspected. For example, back in November, 2013, …

*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—

One of the more disgusting tactics used by Team Kimberlin has been doxxing, especially Bill Schmalfeldt’s faildoxes that earned him several restraining orders. When Team Kimberlin weren’t able to dox me because I’ve made my contact information freely available, they resorted to sending defamatory communications to my business associates and Mrs. Hoge’s colleagues on organizations such as the Forestry Board.

Their efforts backfired, in part, because their claims were unbelievable and, in part, because I made sure that some of them were made public.

Brett Kimberlin is a loser. He’s failed at just about everything he’s tried. Dealing LSD got him convicted of perjury when he was still a teenager but old enough to be an adult. His grandiose dope smuggling schemes resulted in his getting caught trying to bring in over 5 tons of weed. He’s been released from supervisor on his parole, but his sentence for the Speedway bombings still has over ten years left to run. His pro se legal career has been an abject failure, and the attempts by the incompetent writers and editors at his PR blog Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread to find something … anything … favorable to say about his LOLsuits inspired mockery and parody fiction here at Hogewash! and another blogs.

Speaking of parody fiction, I recycled this episode of BLOGSMOKE four years ago today, and I think it’s worth another run.

Yesterday’s TKPOTD engaged in a bit of review of one of The Dread Deadbeat Prevaricator Kimberlin’s false narratives about his past, one in which he claimed to have been the insightful investigator who cracked a murder case. Today, we’ll look back on an early Blogsmoke episode that dealt with an investigation into a character known as The Bomber. The episode originally ran five years ago today.

JOHN: BlogBash is an awards ceremony held by the National Blogger’s Club during the Conservative Political Action Conference each year. It’s the hot ticket party at CPAC. This year, the Ides of March fell during the Conference.

BlogBash was held at a club that was a couple of blocks from the Convention Center, and, a few days before BlogBash, the club received a phone call from one of The Grouch’s associates, a convicted serial Bomber, threatening the event with a demonstration. There were about a dozen or so of us attending the event who were aware of the threat and who were on the lookout for possible troublemakers.

JOHN: Sure enough, there was a sort of stalker. He was a goofy looking guy who we later identified as someone who worked with The Bomber. They had met in prison while The Goofball was doing time on a kiddie-porn charge.

Oh, and we found out later that The Bomber was there too. He was photographed while there.

SOUND: CROWDED BAR BACK UP—SUSTAIN IN BACKGROUND

AARON: Hey, John. Look at this on my phone.

JOHN: What the … Whose account is that?

AARON: Look, it’s the Twitter account The Bomber probably uses. He’s tweeting about BlogBash and describing things as they happen. He’s got to be someplace just outside.

JOHN: Yeah, and he’s swapping tweets with The Grouch.

JOHN: There’s a website … let’s call it Goodguys Unmasked … that publishes attacks on The Bomber’s critics. Sure enough, pictures taken from street outside of BlogBash appeared on that site in short order along with snarky commentary about the event.

One of The Bomber’s weaknesses is his belief that he’s smarter that everyone else. His cleverness often trips him up. In this case, it was the pictures.

You see, pictures taken with digital cameras have data embedded in them in what are called EXIF files. Comparison of the data in the BlogBash pictures posted on Goodguys Unmasked with photos taken by The Bomber while he was stalking someone showed that they had be taken by the same type of camera and downloaded to the same Windows computer. Not a definitive tie in, but certainly suggestive.

And The Bomber and The Goofball weren’t the only people with cameras. There was a lot of pictures taken that evening. There was a lot of surveillance footage from security cameras.

ANNOUNCER: (VOICE OVER MUSIC) Was The Bomber at BlogBash? It’s possible that the evidence can tell us—as we will see in the next episode of “BLOGSMOKE”!

MUSIC: SWELL AND CONTINUE TO MUSIC OUT

ANNOUNCER: The Legal Department wishes the following declaimer read: “‘BLOGSMOKE’ is a work of fiction. Anyone who feels it might be about him should read Proverbs 28:1.” This is LBS, the Lickspittle Broadcasting System.

The Sheriff, Johnny Atsign, Sergeant Friday, and Officer Smith haven’t retired. They’re working separate angles of several related investigations. One of these days, it will make sense for some new episodes to air in order to report new findings.

Stay tuned.
