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.

A man’s got to know his limitations.

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 https://hoooooooooooooooooooooge.wordpress.com 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.

AND HOGE JUST ADMITTED HIS PART IN IT!!!

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.

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.

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.
