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!

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.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

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.

Here is a recent tweet from the Cabin Boy™—And this is from a WaPo article published on 8 June, 2016, called How to Visit 48 State Capitals in Under Nine DaysThe Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread Editorial Board was unavailable for comment.

Of course, the Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread Editorial Board has been unavailable for over three years now.

There’s good news, and there’s bad news.

The Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin paid to renew the domain registration for breitbartunmasked dot com before the registrar’s grace period ran out, and the site is now back online.

The Gentle Reader may decide in which category to place this news.

Breitbart Unmasked, Rust in Pieces

The domain registration expired on 13 February, 2022. The site was just shy of ten years old. It had been in a persistent vegetative state since December, 2018. It is survived by jtmp dot org, protecteourelections dot org, velevetrevolution dot us, greencasamaryland dot org, itstime2020 dot org, and empr dot media.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

The domain registration for breitbartunmasked dot com has been allowed to expire. When I checked the registration at 02:20 UTC on 14 February (9:20pm ET yesterday evening), the ICCAN Lookup returned the following—

Sunday evening, I was unable to access the site on the offshore server that hosts most to the other Kimberlin-related domains. Namecheap, the registrar for the domain, appears to have parked the domain on an Amazon Web Services server in the U.S.

Hmmm.

Quote of the Day

The truth will be told, and we are in the process of making our own movie which shows that truth to counter Breitbart and his minions from polluting the minds of decent ordinary hard working Americans, which these right wing extremists are not. Stay tuned for more.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

One of the … um … interesting things about Team Kimberlin is how their various insecurities have influence their public statements. The TKPOTD for five years ago today dealt with one example.

* * * * *

Yesterday’s TKPOTD was about Brett Kimberlin’s web footprint on one particular server. That post resulted in a whiny screed from the Cabin Boy™ at Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread that assumed that my TKPOTD post was challenging BU to a “Dick Measuring” contest. While BU is mentioned in passing, yesterday’s post isn’t about that website at all. The BU post is another shining example of the Cabin Boy’s™ poor reading comprehension.

The Cabin Boy’s™ post also displays Team Kimberlin’s insecurity, stating that BU would prefer to keep their zippers up. That’s quite understandable.

* * * * *

Of course, its been over three years since Breitbart Unmasked as been able to get anything up.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

What might be a liar’s ultimate fear? Eight years ago today I considered what would be waiting for an editor of Breitbart Unmasked in Room 101?

* * * * *

Xenophon the Troll’s use of the term “memory hole” in a post he put up at Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it.) got me thinking about the origin of that term in the book Nineteen Eighty Four. One thought led to another, and Room 101 came to mind. Room 101 was the torture chamber at the Ministry of Love where the Party subjected a prisoner to his worst nightmare.

That got me to thinking … what would Xenophon find in Room 101?

Truth, perhaps?

* * * * *

Truth has always been a stranger to Breitbart Unmasked.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Yesterday’s TKPOTD dealt with an example of Team Kimberlin’s tendency to keep using failed strategies. This Dead Horse Du Jour is the follow up post from five years ago today.

* * * * *

The Cabin Boy™ wants to keep flogging his dead horse story of non-existent plagiarism.

Fine. I hope he keeps it up. It has several benefits.

First, his foolishness provides an opportunity for pointage, laughery, and mockification by those who enjoy it.

Second, his time and energy spent ranting about me is time and energy that won’t be spent cyberstalking toddlers or cyberharassing the employers of his perceived enemies.

Third, over the past year or so, Bill Schmalfeldt and Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread have lost what little credibility and what few readers they once had. At this point, nothing they write or say has any clout. While I intend to hold them to account for their earlier troublemaking, what they do online now (with the exception of continuing breaches of the 2014 Settlement Agreement) is not likely to be worth the trouble of addressing with anything other than derision.

Fourth, … oh, you get the picture, Gentle Reader.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Of course, I’m not qualified to provide a formal diagnosis of any of the members of Team Kimberlin, but I will note that they often kept trying the same failing tactics over and over again as if they expected a different result. Five years ago today, I posted about a particular Dead Horse Du Jour.

* * * * *

The Cabin Boy™ apparently doesn’t know The First Rule of Holes, i.e., when your in over your head, stop digging.fmp201701300030It’s been suggested to me that his continuing rant about plagiarism is a crackpot scheme aimed at creating a defense to the defamation claim in the lawsuit I’ve filed against him. The theory is that he’s trying to completely destroy his own credibility so that he can claim that since no one believes anything he says, his ravings can’t cause damage and, therefore, can’t be defamatory. I’m not sure I buy that. It’s too complicated even for one of the Cabin Boy’s™ harebrained schemes.

OTOH, it seems that even the Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread server doesn’t pay him any attention. Here’s where the link in his tweet goes—bu20170129

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Every time Brett Kimberlin filed one of his LOLsuits, his PR flacks at Breitbart Unmasked would loudly predict the direst of dire direness was about to befall the defendants. And then, as the facts surrounding the case would surface, a certain stillness would come over BU. Eight years ago today, I took note that It Sure Is Quiet Over There.

* * * * *

RICOMadnessThere being the Breitbart Unmasked website (No, I won’t link to it.).

It’s been over a week since The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin received my motion to dismiss in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO lawsuit, but nothing has appeared on his website attempting to debunk any of the points made in my motion. Given the ballyhoo at Breitbart Unmasked when the state and federal suits were filed, I’m a bit surprised.

Their expert analysis (stop laughing) of the case showed that the Brett Kimberlin had all the defendants dead to rights. According to Breitbart Unmasked, the RICO suit was supposed to result the defendants becoming the targets of an FBI investigation, but, thus far, the only federal agencies that have contacted me since the suit was filed have been NASA, asking a technical question about some equipment I designed, and the Social Security Administration, informing me of a 1.5% cost-of-living increase.

Perhaps, TDPK has been busy with all the paperwork due by the first week of the new year. He had a bunch due in the state Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. case at the end of last week. There’s a deadline in the RICO case coming up between Christmas and New Year’s Eve, and several deadlines during the first week of 2014.

Still, Xenophon or Roger S should have written something by now—unless, of course, they can’t find anything to attack.

Fail.

* * * * *

Of course, Breitbart Unmasked is still up wasting bandwidth on the Internet, but it hasn’t had any new material posted for over three years.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

When Bill Schmalfeldt wasn’t predicting the direst of dire direness would overwhelm Team Kimberlin’s adversaries, Matt Osborne would serve as their false prophet. Eight years ago today, I wrote about Osborne (using the nom de cyber of Xenophon) channeling The Amazing Criswell and Criswell’s Weather Forecasts.

* * * * *

Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it.) has an occasional feature in which Xenophon channels The Amazing Criswell while making predictions. It turns out to be an apt choice because the predictions are usually as spectacularly wrong as the real Criswell’s.

Last weekend’s forecast was for

Clouds of butthurt have limited visibility in the Carroll County, Maryland area. Expect drizzles of stupid all weekend, with sunny skies due to arrive by Monday afternoon.

It turned out that all the butthurt wound up centered on Elkridge, Maryland, which is in Howard County, although things were sunny here in Westminster.

I wonder if Criswell foresees the blizzard of paper about to descend on Bethesda, Maryland?

* * * * *

The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin was buried with legal paperwork during the holidays that year because of timing set by when he filed his LOLsuits.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Team Kimberlin often projects their own motivations and behaviors on to others. For example, they claim that others are victimizing them with “false narratives” when it is they who tell lies and engage in forgery and perjury.

Speaking of false narratives, here’s one that Bill Schmalfeldt published during one of his turns as editor of Breitbart Unmasked four years ago today.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Team Kimberlin fails at almost every thing they try because the often act with out thinking things through. The I’m Not Making This Up, You Know post from three years ago today presents a classic example.

* * * * *

In a staggering bit of cluelessness, Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Brett Unread is writing about attempted serial bombings.As far as we know, none of the devices have used Mark Time timers or Tovex or have been contained in a gym bag. Still, …

* * * * *

To borrow a phrase—the mockery continues.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

One of the false claims made by Team Kimberlin was that it didn’t exist. Of course, it did—as their own Internet postings demonstrated. Eight years ago today, I ran this post titled No Team Kimberlin, Huh?.

* * * * *

One of the reasons that Brett Kimberlin is suing my codefendants and me for a million bucks is because we write of the existence of a group of people we call Team Kimberlin. It seems that The Dread Pirate Kimberlin believes the mere suggestion that he has influence over a band of Internet thugs is defamatory or libelous or constitutes mopery with intent to lurk. He would have you believe that there ain’t no such thing as Team Kimberlin.

AcmeLegalBriefsSomeone should tell Cafe Press and whoever is running Breitbart Unmasked these days.

And there’s no connection between TDPK and Cabin Boy Bill Schmalfeldt other than the bond of friendship. It’s a coincidence that the Amazon shopping links at Breitbart Unmasked benefit parsbilswhohom-20 (aka Bill Schmalfeldt).

So Team Kimberlin must be a creation of the warped mind of the crazies in Team Lickspittle—just as the members of Team Kimberlin if you don’t believe it.

* * * * *

I’d like to thank the Gentle Readers who have also been a part of Team Lickspittle. Team Lickspittle goodies are still available at The Hogewash Store.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

One of the ways Team Kimberlin demonstrated their utter impotence was by the plethora of empty threats they made against me and my coverage of their activities. These posts from eight years ago cite a trifecta of examples. The first came from Bill Schmalfeldt, and my response was “Go Ahead, Make My Day.”

* * * * *

I wonder if he’ll get this published before they fire him again.fsl201309230208Z

* * * * *

When it turned out that the Cabin Boy™ got fired that very day and he wouldn’t have a venue for his exposé, I said, “I’ll Just Have to Wait.”

* * * * *

BL201309231518Z

boyscoutpopcornIt does look like I won’t be seeing that exposé about me in The Examiner any time soon.

The Cabin Boy seems upset with the day’s events. It may be interesting to see how he acts out.BL201309231520ZUPDATE—Stacy McCain weighs in here. Money quote:

Bad things are going to happen to us — Bill says he knows this — but he is “not responsible” for it? Of course, there are those who believe Bill Schmalfeldt is quite literally insane, so in a sense, he isn’t responsible. But I don’t think he meant it that way.

Read the whole thing.

* * * * *

And finally, The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin issued his own hollow threat, to which I also replied, “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.

* * * * *

Losers.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Given the poor quality of the legal filings made by Team Kimberlin, I wasn’t too much of a stretch to begin joking that they were getting their advice from the legal department of the same Acme Corporation that sold stuff to a certain coyote. The TKPOTD for eight years ago today reported on the actual source of their briefs.

* * * * *

The source of Cabin Boy Bill Schmalfeldt’s “legal” briefs has been found—Acme Underwear.team_kimberlin_brief

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

For all their grandiose planning and “clever” narratives, Team Kimberlin fails because they never seem to be able to understand the likely consequences of their actions of implication of what they’re saying. This I’m Not Making This Up, You Know from seven years ago today pointed out an unforced error.

* * * * *

Bunny Boy has a headline story over at Breitbart Unmasked about a young criminal being caught with IEDs. (No, I won’t link to it.)

Apparently, Brett Kimberlin was unavailable for comment.

* * * * *

Heh.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

One of the bogus claims Brett Kimberlin has made against those of us who have engaged in truthful reporting about him is that our reporting is harassment. In fact, Kimberlin and his enablers are the ones who have been the harassers, and their lamest form of harassment has been their comments here at Hogewash!. This post about Anonymity and Cowardice ran eight 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.

* * * * *

For the most part, the Kimberlin-related websites such as Breitbart Unmasked never had a problem with abusive comment because the never generated enough traffic to attract commenters.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Pretty much everything the members of Team Kimberlin try fails or, at best, performs below their expectations. Their campaign of lawfare is the prime example, of course. The TKPOTD dealt with one of the many failures associated with The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin’s flagship PR operation, Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread.

* * * * *

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.

* * * * *

Although, the BU site hasn’t had any new material since Bill Schmalfeldt went off for a winter vacation in Montana in late 2018, the Cabin Boy™ still maintains a connection, having tweeted a link to one of his defamatory posts only a few months ago.
