Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Brett Kimberlin has engaged in a multi-year campaign of lawfare to attempt to silence people and organizations who have written truthfully about his past and present activities. He was quasi-successful in his initial lawsuit against Seth Allen in that he was able to obtain a default judgment when Allen did not take the proper steps to defend himself. The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin has lost every other defamation case he’s filed since 2012

In his suit against Seth Allen, Kimberlin alleged that he had been defamed by Allen calling him a pedophile. However, he never presented any evidence that Allen had done so. This is from the transcript of the default hearing in Allen case. A is Kimberlin, Q is Allen.So it appears that Kimberlin was so concerned about possible accusations of pedophilia that he assumed they were present in Allen’s blogging—even when there was no evidence that such accusations had ever been made.

I’m reminded of Proverbs 28:1.

However, evidence surfaced in 2013 that did tend to support a conclusion that Kimberlin is a pedophile, and, along with others, I blogged about it. Team Kimberlin’s initial reaction via Breitbart Unmasked was to accuse his accuser of being mentally ill. When that didn’t get any traction, my fellow bloggers and I were attacked. Bill Schmalfeldt was editor of Breitbart Unmasked at the time. Five years ago today, I published the following post about #BillSchmalfeldt and Pedophilia.

* * * * *

I don’t think Bill Schmalfeldt is a pedophile. I think that he is a vile and disgusting thug who delights in crudely splicing other people’s faces into homoerotic porn and who has a sick fascination with scatological “humor,” but the Cabin Boy has his limits. He isn’t a pedophile, and I believe him when he says he finds pedophilia repugnant.

However, I do believe that Brett Kimberlin most likely is a pedophile. As another blogger has noted, there’s too much smoke for there to be no fire. Given the relationship with the Barton girl described in Citizen K and what Tetyana Kimberlin has been able to document to date, yes, I believe that Brett Kimberlin is probably a pedophile. My confidence level for that belief is approaching my confidence in Newton’s Laws of Motion.

Similarly, there’s very little doubt in my mind of the connection between Bill Schmalfeldt and Brett Kimberlin. Schmalfeldt is Brett Kimberlin’s pal, and that association has resulted in some folks referring to the Cabin Boy as an enabler of a pedophile or as a PedoPal. If the shoe fits, …

If Bill Schmalfeldt were capable of honestly reviewing the evidence, I believe that he would come to the same conclusion about Brett Kimberlin that I and many others have, and I believe that, given such an understanding, the Cabin Boy would jump ship.

So why does Schmalfledt stay on board?

* * * * *

Schmalfeldt’s watched Kimberlin lose multiple defamation suits, including the one in which he sued Aaron Walker, Stacy McCain, Ali Akbar, and me for calling a pedophile (among other things) and failed to prove that we had said or written anything false about him.

So why has Schmalfeldt stayed on board?

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One of the things that keeps tripping up Team Kimberlin (and especially the Cabin Boy™) is copyright. Five years ago today, Schamalfeldt was issued a bogus DMCA Threat which resulted in some images being temporarily taken down by Hogewash!‘s web host.

* * * * *

Bill Schmalfeldt threatens to file a DMCA takedown notice over this image:Thecrew

The image is a parody of StarWar VI. Does he claim to own the rights to that film? Disney would contest that.

Does he claim to own the copyright on the image of Brett Kimberlin when he was arrested for impersonating a federal officer? Sorry, that is a public domain image.

Does he claim to own the copyright on the image of Neal Rauhauser? Fine. Produce an affidavit that he is the photographer or the purchase records of the rights.

Does he claim to own the copyright on the image of himself? Fine. Produce an affidavit that he is the photographer or the purchase records of the rights.

Does he claim to be the agent for any of the copyright holders? OK. Produce the documentation appointing him as the agent.

Otherwise, he should realize that filing a bogus DMCA claim could cause him to wind up in court as a defendant rather than a plaintiff. He’s already pushing his luck, but perhaps he wants to double down on stupid.

Perhaps I can get pro bono help from a blogger who helps others subject to bogus censorship …

UPDATE—I’m told that Bill Schmalfeldt has asked nicely that the picture be taken down. Who did he ask? Is he saying that he asked me?

UPDATE 2—Bill Schmalfeldt seems to think that because he is the subject of a photograph or because it was published on his website that he has a copyright on the picture. That’s not necessarily true. The copyright to a picture belongs to the photographer who takes the picture. Schmalfeldt has a copyright on the his website, but unless he took that picture himself, he would have no more ownership of it than he would of a quote from Mark Twain.

Remember, folks, I don’t own my headshot. I use it under license from the photographer who took the picture. He owns the copyright as Bill Schmalfeldt found out.

Furthermore, the parody image was not my creation. I have no rights to it other than permission from the artist to publish.

Schmalfeldt either needs to come up with proof that took the picture himself or that he acquired ownership of the copyright in some other way. Or he needs to knock it off.

UPDATE 3—I just pulled it out of the file to check. I have document signed by the President of the United States saying that I am a gentleman. Actually, an officer and a gentleman. And it’s signed by Richard Nixon. Oh well …

UPDATE 4—Once more, in simple words: The copyright to a work belongs to the creator of the work. The photographer owns the copyright photograph not the subject. The photographer who owns the copyright to my headshot sent the takedown notice on my headshot. Peter Ingemi requested that my image from his copyrighted video not be photoshopped into a pornographic picture. I have never claimed a copyright on any image of me published by Bill Schmalfeldt.

UPDATE 5—This will have to do for now:thecrew2

The Cabin Boy’s™ Copyright Karma eventually caught up with him. During one of his sojourns as editor of Breitbart Umasked Bunny Billy Boy Brett Unread, he used material from Hogewash! in a post at BU. I filed a DMCA notice with BU‘s web host who informed BU that access to their site would be blocked for 10 days if they did not respond with a counter notice. A DCMA counter notice must contain information that will allow service of process. Rather than identify the owner or an agent for BU, the site was taken off shore.

Cowardly cowards gotta cower.

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 be 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 choose 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


The Gentle Reader who has been following The Saga of Team Kimberlin for a few years may remember that in early 2017 Bill Schmalfeldt used his position as editor of Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread to publish a series of defamatory posts accusing me of plagiarism. He used without permission material from Hogewash! in one those posts, so I filed a DMCA notice with the ISP hosting BU which resulted in BU receiving an email which read in part:

For your information, I have received the following/attached notice of copyright infringement. The infringing materials must be removed from your site within 24 hours, or under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), we are required to block access to your site. Once we have had to do that, we cannot unblock it for a minimum of 10 days after you respond with the proper counter-notification under the DMCA or the individual submitting the notification advises us that the material has been removed.

Filing a counternotice would have required providing information concerning the actual ownership of BU and information for service of process on the owner and/or operator. Rather than give up that information, the site was moved offshore, first to Iceland and then to Holland. The Cabin Boy’s™ Breitbit News site moved to the same server at about the same time.

The other site hosted on that Dutch server is empr dot media, a Ukrainian “news” site. Of course, it could be purely coincidental, but I find it interesting that BU moved to a server hosting a Ukrainian PR website while Brett Kimberlin was working closely with a Ukrainian-American operative of the Democratic National Committee on a project to dig up dirt on the Trump Administration.

Hmmmmm.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


It’s really beginning to look as if The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin has given up on Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Brett Unread. It’s been seven weeks since any fresh content was added.Of course, BU isn’t his most neglected site. Some have been left to rot for years, for example, issaoversight dot org. Here’s the most recent item I could find on that site:Zooming in on the date shows that the page is almost three years old.

Several of the links on the site are broken and the Follow Us On Facebook button is dead, but the DONATE button works.

Congressman Issa is retiring at the end of this term. I wonder if TDPK will bother to take the site down.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin must not have a very creative imagination because he keeps trying to recycle the same debunked stories. The tall tale that was the subject of the TKPOTD from four years ago today kept reappearing. It was featured prominently in TDPK’s filings in the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit.

* * * * *

It’s hard to choose from among so many, but this may be my favorite of the whoppers that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has included in his pleadings filed in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness. The “reporter” he mentions is Bill Schmalfeldt.ECF 49-3The Gentle Reader who has been following the Cabin Boy’s™ antics for the past year or so may wonder if TDPK hasn’t ascribed obsessive and bizarre conduct to the wrong person. It’s the “reporter” who is subject to a peace order, not me. It’s the “reporter” who violated the order over 400 time in less than a month.

For the record—I was not forced to participate in mediation with the Cabin Boy™, but as a result of the mediation, I agreed to ask the State’s Attorney’s Office to drop the charges in exchange for Schmalfeldt’s agreeing to abide by the peace order and drop his appeal of the extension. He has reneged. I didn’t.

Why, I wonder, did TDPK feel threatened by my efforts to see the peace order enforced? Hmmmm. That might be an interesting question for a deposition, if the RICO Madness goes that far.

* * * * *

It doesn’t matter how Team Kimberlin has tired to spin that story—in TPDK’s court filings, in the Cabin Boy’s™ LOLsuits, in Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Brett Unread, or in Karoli Kun’s smear piece in Crooks & Liars—the lie has failed to gain any traction. Indeed, their inept telling and retelling of it has fueled a great deal of pointage, laughery, and mockification.

And the mockery continues.
