Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


A couple of posts from three years ago today are at one end of an interesting thread that runs to the present. One post was titled DMCA LULZ Du Jour and the other was the TKPOTD for that date. Here’s the first post.

* * * * *

I received this email from WordPress yesterday afternoon—

IIRC, all of the images that the Cabin Boy™ bitches about in his DMCA notice were published on Twitter. That gives other Twitter users a royalty-free license to republish them. Now, I don’t know whether all of the commenters involved have Twitter accounts, but even use by someone who isn’t a Twitter user or use of an image not published on Twitter would probably be covered by Fair Use as noted in Twitter’s email.

BTW, it was a righteous DMCA notice concerning an image that the Cabin Boy™ foolishly used that forced Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread to flee to an off-shore server.

Failing failures gotta fail.

* * * * *

That day’s TKPOTD was also about that off-shore server.

* * * * *

Here’s some fun factoids about the Interwebz—That’s the complete list of the web domains using xeonhosting dot net for a nameserver as of 21:30 UTC yesterday. I’ll leave it to the Gentle Reader to note anything else these domains might have in common.

* * * * *

Here are the domains hosted on that off-shore server now—

breitbartunmasked dot com
empr dot media
greencasamaryland dot org

Once again, I’ll leave it to the Gentle Reader to note anything else these domains might have in common.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


It was seven years ago yesterday that the Naffe v. Frey SLAPP lawsuit was dismissed. That was the first of the Kimberlin-related federal lawsuits filed against a blogger, Patrick Frey who blogs as Patterico. This post from seven years ago today provided a wrap up of the case.

* * * * *

(Bumped. Originally posted 19 April, 2013) Stay tuned for more details. Meanwhile, congratulations to Patrick Frey and his lawyers, Ken White and Ron Coleman.

UPDATE—The noted legal blog Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it.) predicted that

[w]e expect Frey will have more success winning the case in his blog than in court[,]

but he seems to have been successful in court after all.

UPDATE 2—Ken White has a post at Popehat with details. Note that Ken White is a great friend of the First Amendment who has worked to defend Patrick Frey, a man with whom he often strongly disagrees.

UPDATE 3—From the Popehat commentary:

Observing commentary on the case has been . . . interesting. I’d divide the coverage into three camps. There are people who are supportive of Patrick, but whose coverage really doesn’t delve into the legal issues. There are the vapid and dishonest partisan hacks who attack Patrick for political reasons, and who don’t address the legal issues at all. There’s the greasy, demi-literate, demented Hutt who wrote an extended quasi-sexual fantasy about a mob murdering Patrick and me. Fun!

UPDATE 4—Patrick Frey has comments on the case here. Among his remarks he says this:

Hi, Bill Schmalfeldt! I understand you were curious about the result of this case. I’m happy to be sharing that with you! And, your sick, twisted fantasies notwithstanding, nobody has yet beaten me or Ken with baseball bats or tire irons. No group of men has thrown us in front of a moving truck as part of a conspiracy to cause our deaths. (If you think I am exaggerating, I have uploaded a .pdf of Schmalfeldt’s violent fantasy here.)

In the interest of balance, I will make a one-time exception and publish these excerpts from a comment Mr. Schmalfeldt attempted to make to this post:

I find it interesting that you go through such lengths to find a single post from a blog to prove “wrong” …

Schmalfeldt goes on to discuss the relative merits of other legal matters, and ends with these words:

I know, I know, this comment will never appear on your blog. But YOU will see it, and in your heart you will realize what a totally disgusting fraud you are. And you will have to live with that.

I’ll let Phaedrus have the last word.

Whoever is detected in a shameful fraud is ever after not believed even if they speak the truth.

* * * * *

Naffe was represented by counsel. The Team Kimberlin pro se litigators didn’t do any better.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


This TKPOTD from seven years ago today shows that Bill Schmalfeldt knew exactly who he was involved with when he joined Team Kimberlin.

* * * * *

The “news” Bill Schmalfeldt “reported” when associated with such Team Kimberlin outlets as Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Bill Boy Unread was the sort of lies that would even embarrass … oh, never mind.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One of Brett Kimberlin’s recurring bug-a-boos was Team Themis, a commercial intelligence operation run by some companies also engaged in government work. Kimberlin alleged in his Kimberlin v. Hunton & Williams LLP, et al. RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuit that Team Themis had be conducting a defamatory dirty operation against him on behalf of the Ul. S. Chamber of Commerce—and that my blogging here at Hogewash! was somehow connected with that operation.

Kimberlin has been griping about Team Themis for years. In fact, when I searched Breitbart Unmasked for references to Team Themis, I found one posted on 20 March, 2012, when the site was only one month old.

The former blogger, Seth L. Allen, then set out on an internet smear campaign to destroy both Brad Friedman and his business partner Brett Kimberlin. I won’t go into detail about either of them in this post, suffice it to say though that there was a larger campaign against both parties started by The U.S. Chamber of Commerce which had been under attack by organizations involved with Mr. Kimberlin, and which ended up in the folding of the HBGary Security firm over planned social media destruction campaigns against both Brad Friedman and his business partner: which HBGary had been competing for in the security sector with Palantir Security and a number of other firms that called themselves Team Themis.

One of the ways that I have thumbed my nose at Kimberlin through the years has been with occasional posts about a NASA mission called THEMIS. Such a post six years ago today resulted in some odd comments to which I responded this way—

* * * * *

THEMIS (Time History of Events and Macroscale Interactions during Substorms)  is a mission to investigate what causes auroras in the Earth’s atmosphere. The program is run by NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center and not by the agency just up the road that forgot to buy both vowels.

I have never had any connection to the program.

UPDATE—I found this attempted comment while taking my morning coffee break.TK201404041329ZOf course, the IP address doesn’t belong to Amazon.IPlookup20140404Not only that, it’s not actively assigned.NoMatch

Hi, Neal!

UPDATE—Ooooo! Struck a nerve, have we? This comment just came in attributed to my late mother.TK2014041542ZCan you say “desperation”?

* * * * *

BTW, There are indications that the partnership between Brad Friedman and Brett Kimberlin has been dissolved. They were the co-incorporators of Velvet Revolution US, but since the corporate name was change to Protect Our Elections/EMPR in 2017, Friedman hasn’t appeared to have any connection to the organization. The last IRS filing I’ve found listing Friedman as a Director was for 2015.

Hmmmmm.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Brett Kimberlin began his campaign of lawfare against bloggers in a vain attempt at brass knuckles reputation management. In the process, he lost control of his online reputation. A few years ago, he had over a dozen active websites promoting his various … um … causes, many with active Donate buttons. Yesterday evening, I took a look at his remaining sites. His domain with the most traffic is breitbartunmasked dot com, a site that hasn’t had any new material for almost a year-and-a-halfe and which is clearly deteriorating from lack of maintenance.Here are the world popularity rankings for The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin’s web domains—

brietbartunmasked dot com 2,867,675
protectourelections dot org 8,369,125
greencasamaryland dot org 10,082,735
empr dot media 10,818,661
jtmp dot org 11,183,078

All his web presence is receding as I have foreseen.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Ah, another anniversary. It was five years ago today that the peace order petition that Brett Kimberlin filed in his wife’s elder daughter’s name was denied. The Gentle Reader should not be surprised that The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin tried use forged evidence during the hearing or that his PR website Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Boy Unread provided false coverage of the hearing. I responded to those lies with this Prevarication Du Jour.

* *  *

Over at Breitbart Unmasked, Bunny Boy is running a copy of some tweets that Kimberlin introduced into evidence during today’s hearing. They supposedly prove that I posted a comment on an article at the Montgomery County Gazette.perjury1Because I denied making such a comment and could not authenticate the tweet as mine, Bunny Boy is shilling Kimberlin’s story that I perjured myself today.

Bullshit!

I couldn’t authenticate the tweet as mine, because it isn’t. It’s a retweet. The original tweet (and I presume the comment at the Gazette) was by Lee Stranahan.Stranahan201308281627ZI took me all of two minutes to find that original tweet via Google.

Did I mention that Brett Kimberlin is a liar?

* * * * *

I’m sure that I’ve mentions that TDPK’s first felony conviction was for perjury.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


When The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin hasn’t been able to get the courts to order his critics to stop speaking and writing about him, he’s tired to use sealed court documents obtained during discovery to smear his perceived enemies or as evidence in unrelated LOLsuits. Three years ago today, this Footnote Du Jour appeared here at Hogewash!.

* * * * *

The Gentle Reader may wish to take note that the Cabin Boy™ has never denied that a member of Team Kimberlin was the source of the sealed discovery emails he published during his first turn as Editor of Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread.

* * * * *

Of course, BU has improperly published court documents or records on several occasions when Team Kimberlin thought it might be useful.

BTW, even though the domain registration for breitbartunmasked dot com was renewed for another year last week, nothing new has been posted at the site for over fourteen months.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The Gentle Reader may remember that I have occasionally taken notice that something might or might not happen on or about 13 February. I can now state that the possible event will not occur.

The domain registration for breitbartunmasked dot com was due to expire on the 13th, but someone has paid to renew the registration for one more year. Given that nothing new has been posted to the site since 8 December, 2018, and a lack of maintenance has caused various internal and external links to go bad, it seems that someone has decided to throw good money down a rat hole.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The Saga of Team Kimberlin has had its share of oddball twists and turns and occasional descents into abject silliness. This Non Sequitur Du Jour is from three years ago today.

* * * * *

Without even having to rely on one of his now infamous flow charts, the Cabin Boy™ has jumped to this conclusion—fmp201702040508zI’m not sure how a tuxedo has anything to do with that TKPOTD post or why concern about a tux triggered the mini Feltdown exchange among the Cabin Boy™, the BU Twitter account, and WhoIsNumberNone I found in my Twitter notifications this morning.

Hmmmmm.

Oh, one more thing … one doesn’t wear white socks with a tuxedo.

* * * * *

Come to think of it, most of the members of Team Kimberlin have demonstrated an even poorer fashion sense than their grasp of legal issues.

I couldn’t have made this stuff up on my own.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread was originally hosted on an off shore server, but it was eventually moved on to US-based hosting. It stayed there for several years until it was hit with a DMCA notice. The hosting service informed BU that the site would be taken down unless a counter notice was filed. Because a counter notice would have to include the name and address of a person who could accept service of process for BU, the site was moved back off shore. The TKPOTD for three years ago today took note of BU’s cowardice.

* * * * *

This week certainly was interesting.

The Cabin Boy™ flailed around trying to get something to stick to me and wound up publishing a copy of a Hogewash! post at Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread. You might have thought that the loss of multiple sites to DMCA notices would have made him more careful, but he really is almost cohermpletely uneducable. The DCMA notice I filed resulted in Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread having to chose between obeying the law or fleeing off shore. The site is now hosted in Iceland.

popcorn4bkMeanwhile, Judge Hecker has granted my motion for an order requiring The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin to show cause why he should not be found in contempt for failing to obey the court’s order compelling answers to discovery interrogatories in the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit. The hearing is set for 17 March, the second anniversary of the dismissal of the Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club, et al. RICO Madness LOLsuit. That’s also the day that the last bit of paperwork related to the motions for summary judgment is due to Judge Hazel in the follow-on Kimberlin v. Frey RICO Remnant LOLsuit.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

* * * * *

BU is still hosted on an off shore server. It’s moved to the same server in the Netherland’s that hosts the empr dot media and greencasamaryland dot org sites.h

Meanwhile, there are still some pending issues with BU and Team Kimberlin. I’m not done with them yet, but so far, it’s been in my interest to let certain things play out naturally.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Gentle Reader, you’d think that people who had as much experience lying as the members of Team Kimberlin would begin to get reasonable good at it, but their whoppers are usually easily caught. The TKPOTD from three years ago today dealt with one example of the Cabin Boy’s™ prevarication that was published at Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread.

* * * * *

The Cabin Boy™ refers to me as a vexatious litigant in his recent defamatory post at Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread. That is yet another false characterization of me, and Bill Schmalfeldt should know that it’s false. The Kimberlins filed a motion to have me found to be a vexatious litigant in the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit. After oral argument on 27 September, 2016, Judge Hecker denied their motion, noting that I had been the defendant in essentially almost all of the civil cases between us. The Cabin Boy™ filed a similar motion in that case in early October, and Judge Hecker denied Schmalfeldt’s motion on 15 November. Thus, he’s been told by the court that I’m not a vexatious litigant.

Successful defending oneself is not vexatious litigation. As I told the court in my oppositions to those silly motions, if I’ve vexed The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin and the Cabin Boy™, it’s by beating them in the multiple LOLsuits they’ve filed against me.

It would be wise for Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread to take down that post and publish a retraction and an apology by noon today.

Murum aries attigit.

* * * * *

Of course, the text of post cited above is still up at BU, but the images are gone. BU hasn’t had any new material for over a year, and many of the internal and external links are now broken.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Our golden blast from the past for today is a twofer. The Gentle Reader can easily figure out how they’re related. The first, New! Improved!, is from six years ago today.

* * * * *

There’s a new look to the Breitbart Unmasked website this morning (No, I won’t link to it.). They’ve dumped the logo that Bill Schmalfeldt designed for one with a much clearer look. Here’s the old banner logo designed by the Cabin Boy—heddAnd here’s the new look—BU logo 2014

A new look for a new year? Or a quick change after a discussion on websites such as Kimberlin Unmasked about the Breitbart Unmasked/Bill Schmalfeldt connection and the bits of data the Cabin Boy leaves behind in his images.

I’m sure it’s just coincidental.

* * * * *

The second is an episode of Yours Truly, Johnny Atsign from three years ago.

Some of the lies that Team Kimberlin have told have been so transparently false that one wonders why they bothered to tell them. This Prevarication Du Jour is from six years ago today.

* * * * *

Down at the bottom of the Breitbart Unmasked webpage (No, I won’t link to it.), there’s a series of numbers that increments several clicks upward each time the page is reloaded. It’s a fake traffic counter. Here’s what it looked like just before 9 am ET this morning.BUcounterOver a million-and-a-half hits! And complete bullshit. At the same time, the all-time page view counter for Hogewash! was ticking past 782,000. Hogewash! is an older blog than Breitbart Unmasked, and since BU has been online, this blog has always had substantially more traffic. Indeed, for the last few months, BU‘s daily traffic has struggled to match an average hour’s at this blog.

So why have the bogus counter? If it were on the Justice Through Music Project or Velvet Revolution US sites, it might make sense. (“Look, see! We’ve got lots of traffic. We’re effective.”) Is the lying so compulsive that … oh, never mind.

* * * * *

That bogus hit counter didn’t survive one of the early respins of the BU site design. Not that it matters any more. The site is essentially defunct and hasn’t had any new material posted in over a year. Meanwhile, Patterico’s Pontification, The Other McCain, Hogewash!, and the sites of the other defendants in The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s LOLsuits are still in business.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


It’s been a year since anything new has been posted at Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread.You know, I kinda miss reading some of their outrageous forecasts of doom for me and other bloggers who had the temerity to write about The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se/Publisher Kimberlin. Perhaps the Gentle Reader will remember the pointage, laughery, and mockification that resulted from such silly posts as this—Meanwhile, this blog continues, and the former editor of BU is having a second winter vacation up north.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One of the recurring lies told by Team Kimberlin has been the promises by Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread to stay on top of the stories surrounding the various LOLsuits filed by Brett Kimberlin. The TKPOTD from six years ago today took note of one instance of BU’s lack of follow through.

* * * * *

I can’t seem to find Breitbart Unmasked‘s report of The Dread Pirate Kimberlin’s day in court earlier this week.

I wonder why?

* * * * *

Well, we know why, don’t we? The truth has nothing to do with Team Kimberlin’s false narratives.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One way to try to get some insight into what The Dread Deadbeat Pirate/Pro-Se/Protestor/Performer/Protector/Publisher Kimberlin is up to is to take a look at which of his websites he’s keep up to date.

It’s been 345 days since Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread has been updated.
It’s been 300 days since the Justice Through Music Project website has been updated.
It’s been 103 days since the Protect Our Elections website has been updated.
It’s been 68 days since the Green Casa Maryland website was updated.
It’s been less than 24 hours since the EMPR (Euromaidan PR) website was updated and less than 12 hours since a tweet was posted to (a)EuromaidanPR.

Hmmmm.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Many folks work in industries or have hobbies that have a jargon, a group of words or phrases with special meaning. Someone letting such jargon slip off his tongue (or from his fingers on to his keyboard) can inadvertently give away information about his background, Hold that thought for a few moments.

The Gentle Reader who has been following this feature at Hogewash! will surely remember that I’ve been keeping track of the lack of activity on Breitbart Unmasked website. It hasn’t had any new material posted since 8 December, 2018. The BU twitter feed had a few tweets posted later in December, 2018, before going quiet—except for two outburst early this year.

The first series of tweets went out on 18 January, and appear to have been triggered by the fake BuzzFeed story about the President ordering Michael Cohen to lie to Congress.

The second series went out over a few days in late March, around the time that the news was leaking that Mueller was going to fail to bring any further indictments. The very last tweet contained a couple of words—tail number—that reveal something about its author.

Aircraft registration numbers are displayed on the sides of the rear of the fuselage (or the sides of the rudder) and are commonly referred to by people who work around or fly aircraft as “tail numbers.” Use of that term is much less common among people without an aviation background.

Brett Kimberlin, who has claimed under oath to have no connection to Breitbart Unmasked, held a pilot’s license back in his dope smuggling days. He’s also been convicted of perjury and has been caught in multiple lies in recent legal proceedings.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


It’s been ten months now since the GS-13 editor Bill Schmalfeldt left Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread for his winter vacation in Montana, and Brett still hasn’t been able to find anyone to put the site back together. This is what it looked like just before 10pm ET last night.Perhaps the $355,436 Brett Kimberlin spent on “Print & Publication” in 2017 broke the budget to the point that he still can’t afford to keep BU going.

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.
