Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


It was just a year ago that Cory Booker made a fool of himself with his Spartacus moment during the Kavanaugh hearings, and by bring up Spartacus he provided an opportunity for pointage, laughery, and mockification that included Team Kimberlin. One year ago today, this post about Spartacus and Marcus Crassus ran.

* * * * *

So Senator Booker has had his “I am Spartacus” moment with mixed results, but on the whole, he’s received mostly pointage, laughery, and mockification. It’s interesting that the one person who should have spoken critically, Marcus Crassus of Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Brett Unread, has been unavailable for comment.

* * * * *

The mockery continues.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Over the years, the principal PR website for Team Kimberlin has been Breitbart Unmasked. However, after Bill Schmalfeldt left for his winter vacation in Montana, The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin has been unwilling or unable to find someone to take over the site as the Cabin Boy’s™ replacement. It hasn’t been updated for nine months, but someone has been diddling with it because some material has been taken down. For example, the images that were on the Home page are now gone.Whoever has been trimming the site hasn’t got around to making me an unperson yet. Clicking on the Hoge Watch link in the tag cloud reveals this.As many of the Kimberlin-related domain’s registrations have expired, they have not been renewed. Perhaps that will happen to BU, and whole site will be memory-holed.

Stay tuned.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One of the reasons for Team Kimberlin’s string of failure in the LOLsuits they brought to try to suppress the free speech rights of their critics is their ineptitude in court. Yesterday’s TKPOTD dealt with one example of that. However, their inability to present a coherent case to a judge or jury shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone who has experienced their incompetence presenting their stories on the Internet. Consider the TKPOTD from six years ago today.

BS201308311448ZjudgestansfieldAs the Gentle Reader can see in the tweet above, Sore Loserman Bill Schmalfeldt has been posting his complaints about a “bowtie [sic] wearing” conservative judge who ruled against him. Judge Thomas F. Stansfield of the Circuit Court of Maryland for Carroll County does often wear bow ties.

Here we have another example of Schmalfeldt’s careful, in-depth research.

Judge TitusThe Cabin Boy’s beloved U. S. v. Cassidy opinion was written by Judge Roger W. Titus (photo at left). Judge Titus was nominated by President Bush in June, 2003.

Of course, it is not only conservative jurists who wear bow ties. For example, here is the Supreme Court’s official photo portrait of Justice John Paul Stevens.justicestevensI can’t understand how Schmalfeldt thinks his strategy of attempting to try his various motions and his appeal on the Internet is supposed to work. For example, I’d never let anything like the following Twitter exchange see the light of day if I wanted to stay on the good side of the judge deciding my case.

BU:BS201308311408Z

Zoa Barnes is my lawyer.

I also wouldn’t have posted anything like this on a blog:

Hoge’s lawyer mopped the floor with us. The Circuit Court Judge sat, making “smoochy-eyes” at Zoa as she YELLED at me like a 3rd Grade Teacher to an errant student. Oh, my lawyer tried to get the judge to hear about how US v. Cassidy had a direct impact, but (and I hope I’m recalling this correctly), Zoa objected to Cassidy as irrelevant and the Judge sustained. So using the LAW as it applied in our case was out the door.

BTW, my recollection of the trial as refreshed by the audio transcript is that Ms. Barnes never raised her voice to Schmalfeldt and that she did not object to the Cabin Boy’s lawyer bringing up Cassidy. Indeed, she expected it to be raised and, when Schmalfeldt’s lawyer didn’t have a copy of the case for the court, she provided one for Judge Stansfield along with a clear explanation of why Cassidy had no application in Hoge v. Schmalfeldt. Judge Stansfield agreed.

It really seems that Schmalfeldt is making it up as he goes along and hoping someone important will believe his story. That won’t cut it when confronted in court by rules of evidence and the court’s procedural rules.

Acme Law at it’s finest!

UPDATE—I agree with The Doctor in the Comments—bow ties are cool.bowtie_me

UPDATE 2—Here’s a picture of Chief Judge (retired) of the Maryland Court of Appeal Robert M. Bell.RobertMBell

I’ve thought highly of Judge Stansfield’s judicial temperament since I observed his reaction to seeing a copy of those tweets by BU and the Cabin Boy™ in the evidence before him during the December, 2013, hearing on renewing the first peace order issued against Schmalfeldt. When he got the page with those tweets, his only reaction was raised eyebrows and a brief nod of his head.

I don’t think the Cabin Boy’s™ tweet helped his case.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


This TKPOTD was published five years ago today as part of the wrap-up coverage of the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. LOLsuit. It fairly well demonstrates that one the real purpose of that LOLsuit was a fishing expedition seeking information related to a principal source of The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s butthurt.

* * * * *

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin kept whining that he had provided my codefendants and me with “thousands of paged of documents” and that we had given a copy of just one email during discovery in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit.

That’s true. He did get only one email, and I’m the one who gave it to him as part of my answer to Plaintiff’s Interrogatory 3.

What I gave him was an email that I had sent to Kimberlin Unmasked that wasn’t covered by codefendant privilege. It was an answer to a question about a recently passed Maryland gun law. TDPK got everything that he asked for that he was entitled to receive. He was very foolish in his choice of questions.

popcorn4bkHe was clearly focused on finding KU’s identity and showed no real interest in developing any sort of case against me. If Brett Kimberlin is lucky, Judge Hazel will throw out the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness on the motions to dismiss. Otherwise, he’ll be facing discovery conducted by each of the two dozen defendants.

Meanwhile, it’s been months since The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin has posted anything new at Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread, but a certain cockroach still seems to be active on the web.

Failing failures gotta fail.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread website has been one of Brett Kimberlin’s most notable online failures. While it is still hosted on the same offshore server as the empr dot media Ukrainian news website, BU hasn’t been updated for eight months when Bill Schmalfeldt left for his winter vacation in Montana. (Although the EMPR site is being maintained, it appears to have even less traffic than BU.)No one is has made any comments on that last post.

The registration for BU expires on 13 February, 2020. Will The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin continue to waste bandwidth by keep the site alive till then? Or will he cut his losses? Or will he renew the registration and keep the site going as an object of pointage, laugher, and mockification?

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Brett Kimberlin has been pretty much of a failure at many of the things he’s tried. His almost completely unblemished record of losses in court as The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin is a prime example. His musical talent earned him a reputation as The Dread Deadbeat Performer Kimberlin. Prevaricator. Prisoner. The list goes on.

The TKPOTD from four years ago today took a look at one of his failures as The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin.

* * * * *

The Gentle Reader may remember that after The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s unsuccessful attempt at securing a peace order against me and the failure of his appeal of that denial, Aaron Walker and I were criminally charged with online harassment of a minor. Of course, the charges were as bogus as the peace order petition, but Breitbart Unmasked (a website specifically created to shill for TDPK) expressed confidence that Aaron and I would soon be enjoying three hots and a cot at the Graybar Hotel. When Aaron met the charges with the derision they deserved, BU tut-tutted:

What does he suppose a state’s attorney is going to think of his response?

Aaron and I both supposed that the State’s Attorney would drop the charges, and that’s exactly what the State’s Attorney did.

Now, a credible and responsible news site would publish a followup story detailing the disposition of the case, so the Gentle Reader should not be surprised to find that Breitbart Unmasked has not done so. Of course, BU has never been known for accuracy in reporting.

As a “retired” GS-13 editor once said of Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread: “It’s my prime source for news, hearsay, lies and innuendo. Oh, and smears, too!”

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Brett Kimberlin’s inept attempts to use lawfare as a form of brass knuckles reputation management has given the Internet one of its best examples of the Streisand Effect. First, he picked on a a leftwing blogger named Seth Allen. Then, he went after people who were trying to help Allen, especially a lawyer named Aaron Walker. When The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin secured a patently unconstitutional gag order against Aaron as part of a peace order, the blogosphere replied with Everyone Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day.

Among the people who rallied to Aaron’s defense was Ali Akbar, who was President of the National Bloggers Club. That put Ali in TDPK’s sights, and Breitbart Unmasked began putting up post clearly designed to intimidate Ali. Seven years ago today I ran, this post titled More Attempted Intimidation.

* * * * *

Brietbart Unmasked, a web site associated with Brett Kimberlin and Company, has published what looks like an attempt to intimidate blogger Ali Akbar and his family. There are summaries of what’s happened so far at Twitchy and The Other McCain.

Ace of Spades is calling for a National Day of Blogging Silence on Friday. He is planning to go silent on that day except for the posting of an open letter to his congresscritter urging action to protect bloggers and their First Amendment rights. Other bloggers are hopping on that bandwagon. This blog will probably participate.

It was unwise of Mr. Kimberlin to begin picking on bloggers. It is even more foolish to try to go after Ali Akbar. I will repeat my advice, paraphrased from Rick Blaine’s advice to Major Strasser: Well, there are certain portions of the Internet, Mr. Kimberlin, that I would not advise you to invade. [See UPDATE 3.]

UPDATE—Datech Guy posts this:

Lets see Democrat operatives deciding they don’t like what a Black political activist is doing.
So they attempt to intimidate and threaten the activist’s family in order to make him stop.
… where is the NAACP? Where is the Wall to wall coverage in the MSM? Where is the congressional Black Caucus? Where is President Obama saying that if he had a son he would look like Ali? When will Eric Holder begin his investigation or is he waiting till Kimberlin & associates ask Ali & his family to show an ID to vote?
BTW, I’ve met Ali’s mother, she is a charming and intelligent woman. I suspect any attempt to intimidate her is going to fail spectacularly.

UPDATE 2–Stacy McCain adds this:

Does the phrase “Don’t mess with Texas” ring a bell? Maryland courts have been incredibly lenient with the Kimberlin/Rauhauser axis, but Ali assures me that Texas won’t take too kindly to the purposeful harassment of one of its law-abiding citizens. Ali’s mother has harmed no one, and whoever thought up this sick stunt might find themselves prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law—Texas law. IYKWIMAITYD.

UPDATE 3–The Datech Guy has another related post. If you don’t get my Casablanca allusion above, click on the video in his post.

* * * * *

Aaron Walker, Ali Akbar, and Stacy McCain have been among my 40+ codefendants in the various LOLsuits Brett Kimberlin has filed (and lost) against me (and them). While we’ve certainly been harassed and inconvenienced by Team Kimberlin’s [expletive deleted], we haven’t been intimidated. Indeed, we’re all going strong in our chosen activities on the Internet and in the Real World.

Meanwhile, Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread has sort of petered out. The most recent thing there is a feeble jab at Ali that Bill Schmalfeldt wrote before he left for his winter vacation in Montana.
