Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin’s Breitbart Unmasked website initially went live on server in The Netherlands, but it moved to onshore hosting after a year or so. However. it moved back offshore after Bill Schmalfeldt published post containing material lifted from Hogewasht! without permission. When I filed a DMCA takedown notice, the site moved from its U.S.-based hosting rather than provided contact information for service of court papers. Six years ago today, I posted about GS13 Editor Bill Schmalfeldt and how He Bravely Turned His Tail and Fled.

* * * * *

When DMCA raised its ugly head,
He bravely turned his tail and fled.
Bravest of the brave, Sir William!

Rather than obey U. S. copyright law, Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread has fled to an off shore server. So Marcus Crassus can talk tough hiding on a server in Iceland, but seems to be afraid to speak his mind here in America.


UPDATE—Lest the Plagiarism Polizei become excessively agitated, let me state that the short ditty above is a parody of the song about Brave Sir Robin from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Furthermore, the parody is not my creation. I saw it, or something very much like it, in a cartoon published by a cockroach.

* * * * *

I did some digging, and I found a copy of the cartoon I mentioned above.

Although it has lain fallow for over four years now, on of Team Kimberlin’s principal PR organs was the Breitbart Unmasked website. The site’s occasional editor Bill Schmalfeldt call it his “prime source for news, hearsay, lies and innuendo. Oh, yeah. Smears, too!” Eight years ago today BU published a long defamatory screed attacking Aaron Walker, and it was full of hearsay, lies, innuendo, and smears. And sealed court discovery, too! That’s only the opening paragraph. The Gentle Reader can find the whole post still active on the BU website.

Here’s Bill Schmalfeldt’s concern troll comment to the post.It wasn’t Aaron Walker’s blog about free speech and pictures of Muhammed that drew Brett Kimberlin’s interest and ire. It was Aaron’s pro bono legal assistance to a left-wing blogger who Kimberlin had sued for defamation.

It’s was Kimberlin’s attacks on Aaron’s First Amendment rights that backfired and drew the attention of the blogosphere to past and current activities.

It was ten years ago that Bill Schmalfeldt first took a turn as editor of Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread. Pointage, laughery, and mockification began immediately with this post titled Cabin Boy #BillSchmalfeldt and the Beanstalk.

* * * * *

bu20130120Cabin Boy Bill Schmalfeldt is now the editor of Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it). Although I have never seen him in person, his pictures on the Internet lead me to assume that his is a rather large fellow. Given the image on the masthead of BU, he must think of himself as a giant. The most famous giant who threatens to grind one’s bones for bread is the giant in Jack and the Beanstalk.

I smell the blood of an Englishman,
Be he alive, or be he dead,
I’ll have his bones to grind my bread.

Or so it goes in Joseph Jacobs classic version of the fairy tale. As I remember the story, it doesn’t turn out well for the giant.

Now, where did I put that axe?

* * * * *

It would be several weeks after that post went up that I first met the Cabin Boy™ in person. Although I never had to use an axe, our interactions have cut him down to a size more in line with his talents and karma.

His last known employment has been as editor of the Center Republican in North Dakota. (Schmalfeldt. Republican. Karma. Some assembly required.) Last night, when tried to access his LinkedIn page (Bill Schmalfeldt – Editor – Central Nordak Publishing | LinkedIn), the link 404ed.


Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

The whole of Team Kimberlin’s lawfare campaign was a pack of lies aimed at undermining the credibility of bloggers and reporters who were writing about Brett Kimberlin. Now, you’d think that people with that much practice at lying would at least be competent at it, but competence was rare among the members of Team Kimberlin. The TKPOTD for nine years ago was about an attempt by Matt Osborne (aka Xenophon) to lie about the progress of one of Kimberlin’s LOLsuits.

* * * * *

Xenophon is telling lies over at Breitbart Unmasked again (No, I won’t link to it.)—BU20140114Z9871receiptWhat really happened was that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s motion for alternate service on Ali Akbar was denied. You see, Maryland Rule 2-121(a) requires that service of process via mail be by Certified Mail, Return Receipt Requested, Restricted Delivery. Unfortunately, TDPK didn’t check the box for Restricted Delivery on the Certified Mail green card. Also, and this is confirmed by the USPS mailing receipt he filed as an exhibit in his RICO status of service report, he didn’t pay for Restricted Delivery either. The Restricted Delivery charge in 2013 was $4.75 in addition to the $5.65 for Certified Mail with Return Receipt. Sure enough, the copy of the green card that Kimberlin filed with his motion for alternate service does not have the Restricted Delivery “Yes” box checked. Even if he had mailed the package to correct address, service would have not been valid.9871_a

Meanwhile, TDPK was unhappy that Ali’s lawyer was not being cooperative, that is to say, was looking out for his own client’s interests. In a fit of pique, TDPK filed a motion for sanctions against Ali’s lawyer, and, to make sure that he got it right this time, he included an exhibit that showed the green card with the box checked.9871_b

And he got caught.

And Judge Burrell was not amused by having two versions of the same document from the same party. Motion denied!

Furthermore, at no time during the hearing did Judge Burrell verbally order Ali’s lawyer to disclose Ali’s current address to TDPK, and she has not sent any such written order to Ali’s lawyer.

So what we have here is a notorious liar lying about what happened when a convicted perjurer got caught filing an apparently forged document with a court.

That one check mark wound up costing Kimberlin dearly.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Part of Team Kimberlin’s PR effort was to threaten those of us being sued by the Dread Deadbeat Pirate Pro-Se Kimberlin with the direst of dire direness if we didn’t settle on terms favorable to the plaintiff. One of the early threats that fizzle was that Kimberlin had found a top notch lawyer who would crush us in court. The Bonus Prevarication Du Jour from nine years ago today was about one of Matt Osborne’s (aka Xenophon) attempts to spin that yarn.

* * * * *

Here’s another whopper from Xenophon at Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it).BU20131223If The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin really has found a lawyer willing to represent him, that lawyer will be filing an appearance with the court, and that should appear on the docket. Soon. As of this evening, the online database for the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. lawsuit still shows Brett Kimberlin as pro se, that is, representing himself without counsel.

I suspect that Xenophon is simply lying. The post containing that statement is dated 23 December. That’s the same day that Brett Kimberlin filed his latest round of motions in the lawsuit, and they were filed pro se rather than through counsel. I’ll believe that TDPK has found a lawyer willing to risk his law license by signing on to the claims in Kimberlin’s Amended Complaint when I see his appearance in the case docket or see him show up in court.

OTOH, Xenphon’s “sources” may have told him that TDPK has a competent lawyer. If that’s the case, it may be time for a med check.

* * * * *

Brett Kimberlin has managed to talk a law firm into providing him with pro bono representation for his petition seeking the Supreme Court review the Seventh Circuit’s denial of his attempt to have his Speedway Bomber convictions set aside. His petition has been distributed to the justices for their conference on 6 January.

Stay tuned.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

One of Matt Osborne’s stranger posts at Breitbart Unmasked was the subject of the Prevarication Du Jour for nine years ago today.

* * * * *

Here’s another ludicrous line from the keyboard of Xenophon (the Troll) as published at Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it.).BU20131216b

Three-Stooges-HitlerIt’s true that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin is seen by some of us as something out of the movies, but not as a horror movie villain. While he is viewed as potentially dangerous, he’s seen as something out of a two-reeler. This picture which was used in a post published last year provides a fair summary of what many of us think about TDPK and his crew.

* * * * *

Osborne spent a decade in the Army and National Guard as an Arabic-speaking intelligence analyst. In spite of being in a critical skill area, he never made it past Spec4. When he was made a member of the Team Kimberlin crew, he was designated 57F Osborne, which placed him in a military occupational specialty where he had adequate skills to succeed. That MOS has now been redesigned 92M.

It’s been four years since there has been any new material posted at Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread.One former editor, Bunny Boy (aka Matt Osborne), tried to reinvent himself Gender Heretic on the Twitterz, floated farther from Reality, and wound up being permanently suspended. The other former editor seems to be alternating between forced retirement (getting fired) and ever gigs in ever marginal markets.

Meanwhile, Hogewash! keeps chugging along having not suffered any of the direst of dire direness predicted by BU, and Ali Alexander, the subject of the the last hit piece on BU, seems to be have had a more significant impact public’s understand of election fraud issues than any of Team Kimberlin’s efforts.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

One of the ways Brett Kimberlin has tried to stir interest in his not-for-profits is by making bogus offers of rewards.For example, Velvet Revolution US (which later morphed into Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc) offered $100,000 for information related to election fraud when it had a negative net worth and no cash on hand, and Kimberlin used the Breitbart Unmasked website to promote the fake offer. This was posted six years ago today at BU.

* * * * *

That post is still up.

BTW, Kimberlin didn’t offer such a reward in 2020.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

In October, 2016, Brett Kimberlin testified under oath that he and his group of hackers were working with the Department of Justice on election security. On 7 November, 2016, a post by Bill Schmalfeldt at Kimberlin’s Breitbart Unmasked website made the following prediction—

Punditry is a dangerous business. But at the moment, we feel our scenario of Secretary Clinton winning 317-221 makes the most sense.

Clearly, The Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin and his minions blew it in 2016.

BTW, while the Protect Our Elections website has been up and running with a working DONATE button, it hasn’t said a word about what Kimberlin is actually doing this year.


Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

This rather foolish post appeared nine years ago today on Breitbart Unmasked. It’s still available on the BU website. (No, I won’t link to it.)

That post ends with this words—

And we cannot wait to see Robert Stacy McCain try this blog court defense in a genuine courtroom.

Stacy never had to present any defense in court because he, my other codefendants, and I were granted a directed verdict in our favor when Brett Kimberlin failed to present a case sufficient to go to a jury.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

During one of Matt Osborne’s turns at running the Breitbart Unmasked website, he tried, quite unsuccessfully, to turn it into something approximating a real news site. But of course, he couldn’t refrain from an occasional attack on those of use continuing to report on the site’s owner. This post appeared on BU nine years ago today.The link to that ABCNews post has expired. Following the expired links to several other ABC posts, Osborne concludes with this—

Transpose the issues presented here from the physical neighborhood to the electronic one. Aaron Walker Stalker will bulldoze your fence rather than slow down at the turn of his driveway. William Hoge will call the police because your grass is an inch too high. R.S. McCain will declare himself the victim of your shenanigans, then shine his laser into your windows the minute your back has turned. All of this is made worse by the internet, which rewards negativity, dishonest argument, and “link baiting” over factual journalism or a conciliatory narrative. Everyone feels completely justified in their actions, no matter how obscene or over-the-top, because the other guy is the one truly at fault just by virtue of his being there.

That bit about feeling justified no matter how obscene one’s action probably fits another former editor of BU better than anyone me mentioned in Osborne’s rant. OTOH, self-awareness has never been one of Team Kimberlin’s strong suits.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

During their campaign of lawfare, Team Kimberlin routinely made threats that their enemies would suffer the direst of dire direness. My response posted nine years ago to day was typical: Go Ahead, Make My Day.

* * * * *

Brietbart Unmasked, who was put on notice to stop contacting me on 15 February, and who continues to do so in violation of Md. Criminal Laws §3-803 and §3-805, sent me the following tweet this evening:BU201309232320Z

Fine. Charge me. I will have a Sixth Amendment right to confront my accuser. That means that if @BreitbartUnmask won’t reveal his identity, the charges get dropped, and if he does reveal his identity, he can rest assured that I will file harassment charges for his continued contact with me.

Perhaps he shouldn’t be getting his legal advice from Acme.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

It’s been said The Sage of The Dread Deadbeat Pirate Pro-Se Kimberlin is much like a bad movie. At one point in an unusually bad fit of poor self-awareness, Matt Osborne (writing under the pseudonym Xenophon) was using Amazing Criswell posts at Breitbart Unmasked to predict the direst of dire direness for people who had been reporting on Kimberlin’s activities. Nine years ago today, I published the post, The Amazing Xenophon.

* * * * *

Over at Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it.), Xenophon has been trying impress both of the site’s regular readers with the idea that she is this generation’s Amazing Criswell. The real Amazing Criswell was a local TV personality in LA back in the ’50s. What little fame he had in the wider world was from his appearances in the Ed Wood howler, Plan 9 from Outer Space, and on the Jack Parr Show.

Criswell’s bating average on his predictions was someplace south of 0.0005, and that is only slightly better than Xenophon’s, so it’s not unreasonable for her to aspire to be in the same league.

There’s another similarity between Team Kimberlin and Criswell. Criswell originally bought time on TV for infomercials for his vitamin business, and that’s kinda like selling drugs.

Oh, one more thing …

Criswell wore bow ties.

UPDATE—Apparently, Matt Osborne thinks that anyone who disagrees with one of the Amazing Xenophon’s predictions should be added as a defendant to Brett Kimberlin’s frivolous suit against Walker et al.

* * * * *

Here’s a comment from the original post comparing the BU staff to the real Xenophon—

BTW, it’s interesting that Osborne never mentioned that I was misgendering him as “Xenophon.”

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Bill Schmalfeldt took several turns as editor of Breitbart Unmasked, but his GS-13 editorial skills were never quite up to the job. A BU post that appeared five years ago today showcased on of his common errors. The post was titled Hoge Admits His Role in Conspiracy. The post, which appears to be work-for-hire and thus owned by BU, begins—

He claims his “Johnny Atsign” feature is a work of fiction. But is it? Would a good libel attorney be able to bust Hoge for pointing out that his readers know perfectly well who and what he is talking about?

In today’s “episode,” Hoge writes about his involvement in what he calls a “honeypot”, a ruse designed to authenticate already authenticated information about me.

CHARACTER LIST: GROUCH, me; GRAYSON, Patrick Grady; ZOMBIE, “Paul Krendler;” JOHNNY, Hoge.

He then begins an extensive quote of a Johnny Atsign episode, and then writes this—

Does that even make any sense? I discovered the website accidentally by doing a search on the way “Krendler” and his readers spelled Hoge’s name with 21 O’s at certain times. I didn’t write a word about it until I had salvaged as much as I could from the Google Cache, from which one will find no sign of to this day.

Once I had all I could salvage, I revealed my discovery. Hoge immediately declared it a “honeypot.” Hundreds of pages and images, beginning March 28, 2014, and ending March 9, 2015. And Hoge admits his part in it.

If it is fake, it’s still horrible! It shows how determined Hoge, Grady, Palmer, Johnson and the whole Hee Haw gang were at pretending they were gathering evidence they hoped I would discover at about the same time my wife was dying.

If it’s real, it’s horrible. It is a journal of conspiracy showing how the gang worked under the cover of a members-only website to trade bits of personal information about me in an effort to wreck my life.

Either way, it’s horrible. And it will be introduced as evidence in the Federal Libel and Conspiracy trial in South Carolina.


Of course, I admitted no such thing. Oh, and nothing got admitted into evidence in the Cabin Boy’s™ LOLsuit VIII because the suit didn’t survive a motion to dismiss.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Lawfare hasn’t been the only thing I’ve had to put up with from Team Kimberlin. They also tired to intimidate me with various forms of cyberthuggery. This post about Anonymity and Cowardice ran nine years ago today.

* * * * *

The use of the term “anonymous coward” to describe someone who posts a comment without using his real name or a known nom de cyber goes back to the early days of Usenet. If Samuel Clemens were to comment here as Mark Twain, he would not be considered an anonymous coward. (Note: Someone using a known nom de cyber (i.e., @BreitbartUnmask) may be a coward but doesn’t really meet the definition of anonymous coward.)

OTOH, these “commenters” are clearly anonymous cowards:cowardsThe abusive, often obscene, content of the comments submitted under these names compounds the cowardice of the sender(s). He (they) doesn’t (don’t) have the courage to speak openly.

I’ve received around a hundred such “comments” over the past few months. I’ve posted a few of them. Most have been so juvenile that my reaction has been to shake my head and file them away. Some, however, have contained seriously perverted messages that raise concerns about the stability of the sender. They have caused my family to take some additional measures to assure our safety.

There are some really sick weirdo trolls on the Internet.

* * * * *

Bullies always seem surprised when a victim punches back, and I’ve rarely settled for only twice as hard.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin never seems to have figured out how to make a well-structured, convincing argument supported by evidence. One of the reasons he lost the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. LOLsuit was that he never succeeded in introducing any authenticated evidence that supported his claims.

OTOH, he made unforced errors in other cases that wound up authenticating the evidence against him. The TKPOTD for five years ago today was about one such admission.

* * * * *

I’ve been reviewing the documents produced by the Kimberlins during discovery in the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit. One of them is a copy of a post from Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread titled Lee Stranahan and Aaron Walker Smear A Teenager’s Family And Try To Snuff Out Her Career. The post was originally published on 29 August, 2013, just after The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin had filed his Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance LOLsuit and just after the Montgomery County State’s Attorney had dropped the first set of false criminal charges Kimberlin filed against Aaron and me. I was not surprised to find that the post is now missing from the Interwebz. I was surprised that TDPK would consider putting it into evidence.

You see, the post contains evidence that is part of the proof that the tweets TDPK attempted to use as evidence in his 2015 peace order petition are forgeries. By offering the post in discovery, he has authenticated it.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

* * * * *

It is possible to be both evil and stupid.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Back in September, 2013, Brett Kimberlin was just getting started establishing himself as what Stacy McCain calls The World’s Worst Pro-Se Litigant™. At that point, Kimberlin had failed in his attempts to get a couple of peace orders, but he hadn’t yet lost any of the defamation LOLsuits that included me as among the defendants.

He’d filed a couple of false Applications for Statement of Charges against Aaron Walker and me, but they had been quickly killed off for lack of evidence. On 3 September, Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Boy Unread published a prediction that a LOLsuit was in the works.Of course, Matt Osborne’s predictions of the direst of dire direness ware (like the real Criswell’s) almost completely wrong.

The one thing that he got right was that we would engage in fund raising to help defray the cost of out defense. Although we had pro bono representation by Patrick Ostronic (Thank you, sir!), we still had several thousand dollars of costs related to copying, court fees, etc. (Thank you to those who helped!)

The worst mistake Kimberlin ever made was including we as a defendant in those cases.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Many of Team Kimberlin’s troubles have stemmed from their misunderstandings of copyright and other intellectual property law. This post On IP and IP is from nine years ago today.

* * * * *

It may have been a bit of rough day for Cabin Boy Bill Schmalfelt. First of all, the IP address for the name server for his hate sites dedicated to Aaron Walker, Stancy McCain, and me don’t seem to be working. It looks like some sort of technical glitch.

Second, I received a copy of a DMCA takedown notice that was sent by the photographer who owns the copyright on the head shot I use under license on the blog’s About page. Given the Cabin Boy’s long-winded assertions of his rights to his intellectual property, one wonders why he appears so upset that a copyright holder would complain about work being used without permission.

Sore Loserman.

* * * * *

Some years later during on of Bill Schmalfeldt’s turns as editor of breitbartunmasked dot com, he used some material from Hogewash! without permission. When I sent a DMCA takedown notice to BU’s ISP, the site was forced to move offshore in order to avoid divulging the owner’s name in a counterclaim.

Stupid is as stupid does.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin created the Breitbart Unmasked website in 2012, and used it to attack his perceived enemies. Here’s an example of a false post from six years ago today.The Gentle Reader will note that the second paragraph in the BU post mentions some embedded audio that is no longer in the post. There were two problems with that audio. The first was that it had been edited to create a false record. The second was that it’s a violation Maryland Court Rules to publish courtroom audio recordings.

Publication of printed transcripts are OK, and when I made the printed record available, the embedded audio was taken down.

Breitbart Unmasked. It’s my prime source for news, hearsay, lies and innuendo. Oh, yeah. Smears, too!

—Bill Schmalfeldt

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

In February, 2012, Brett Kimberlin started the breitbartunmasked dot com website. It operated on-and-off until December, 2018, principally under the editorships of Matt Osborne and Bill Schmalfeldt. The site was first hosted in The Netherlands, but it was moved onshore and its hosting consolidated with over two dozen Kimberlin-related sites after a year or so. It moved back offshore after Bill Schmalfeldt posted some content from Hogewash! without permission, fleeing to avoid the consequences of a DMCA takedown notice.

The site is still wasting bandwidth on the Internet, but has had no new content for over three years. It’s been poorly maintained, and much of the original material is gone.

But the site has been well backed up all along for use as evidence when necessary. For example, here’s a screenshot from a post from seven years ago today that was a clumsy attempt to smear Aaron Walker. The contents of the post are utter rubbish.While the post was still available at the BU website as of 10:16 ET Tuesday evening, it screenshot is from the post’s html file on one of the existing offline backups.

I doubt that Team Kimberlin is aware of the evidence the left lying about.

Some things do not have a statute of limitations.

Matt Osborne was one of the members of Team Kimberlin who served as editor of Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread. Here’s what he thought was newsworthy nine years ago today.

Just like the rest of the Team Kimberlin crew, Matt Osborne is a failure.

After that post went up, Aaron successfully defended himself in three of The Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s LOLsuits, successfully represented me in one of Kimberlin’s appeals to the Fourth Circuit, and successfully represented clients in a LOLsuit filed by Bill Schmalfeldt.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

One of the false claims that Team Kimberlin, especially Bill Schmalfeldt, makes is that people who write about them are engaging in plagiarism. I suppose that ties in with their bogus copyright infringement narrative. Five years ago today, it was Schmalfeldt who was caught using other peoples stuff, and I posted this Plagiarism Du Jour.
