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.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

On Friday the 13th of May, 2016, William Ferguson (one of the minor members of Team Kimberlin) tweeted that the Hoge v. Kimberlin lawsuit would be coming to an end on the following Monday.

On the next Monday, The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin’s Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Boy Unread website published a post titled Why Should A Judge Believe Anything William Hoge Says?. As of 9:30 pm ET last night, the post was still partially intact. It contains this sentence—

Embedded above is newly-obtained audio of that hearing which reinforces our reporting — and snuffs out any hope for further denials.

The audio that was embedded in the original version was from courtroom audio CD of the 2015 Kimberlin v. Hoge peace order hearing in the Circuit Court for Montgomery County. It was a brief out-of-context remark made by the judge as she was denying the peace order petition.

Five years ago today, I posted Some Maryland Court Audio CDs in response.

* * * * *

I’ll just leave these right here—CourtAudioCDs

* * * * *

It wasn’t long before the embedded audio disappeared.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Team Kimberlin’s efforts to distract peoples’ attention from their shenanigans has been rather pathetic. This post from eight years ago today dealt with one attempt by Breitbart Unmasked to confuse people about a stalking incident at the Howard County District Courthouse. Who’s On First? Why, it was Brett Kimberlin!

* * * * *

Someone using the sock puppet identity of Nemesis has a post over at Breitbart Unmasked (I read it so you don’t have to, and, no, I won’t link to it.) about how Aaron Walker is melting down. I lost count of the false and/or misleading statements in the piece. However, Nemesis does ask one question that is worthy of discussion:

When one person lives in Maryland and another doesn’t but somehow finds himself at the courthouse in the presence of someone he claims to “fear”, who is the stalker and who is the stalkee?

I would suppose the proper answer might depend on other facts surrounding the situation.

Suppose, for instance, the person from out of state had official business in the courthouse because he was a party in a hearing. Suppose the Maryland resident was from a different county and had no particular business at the courthouse. Suppose the Maryland resident drove around the parking lot twice (30+ minutes apart) obviously searching for something or someone, and suppose he drove off each time without ever getting out of his car or even parking it.

Given those facts, Gentle Reader, who would you guess might be a stalker?

* * * * *

Brett Kimberlin was so worried about his reputation, but most of the public never could tell him from the shortstop.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

It was six years ago that Brett Kimberlin filed a peace order petition against me on behalf of Tetyana Kimberlin’s elder daughter. He created a series of lies in an attempt to show that I had engaged in online harassment against her, complete with forged tweets. During the week before the hearing on his petition, he tried to get me “convicted” online through a series of false and defamatory articles published at Breitbart Unmasked. The TKPOTD for six years ago today dealt with one of those Bu posts.

* * * * *

I see that Matt Osborne doubled down on his defamatory post over the weekend and tripled down on it yesterday.

I believe that he as made a very unwise choice.

* * * * *

Here’s that post from BU.

Osborne’s post speaks for itself, and convicts itself of lying.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Identity theft has been one of the forms of harassment used by Team Kimberlin. The TKPOTD from six years ago today dealt with one attempt to impersonate Mrs. Hoge.

* * * * *

Mrs. Hoge received a couple of interesting emails today. Someone is trying to use her identity to sign up for a Disqus account in order to post comments at Breitbart Unmasked.UntitledMrs. Hoge also received this email related to Bill Schmalfeldt’s new SRN.Untitled1Of course, she hasn’t tried to comment at BU, and she has no interest in SRN. (She prefers to listen to WYPR out of Baltimore for NPR talk and jazz and WETA-FM from Washington for classical music.)

I can understand why a member of Team Kimberlin would rather have someone else’s identity instead of his own. OTOH, I am not amused by someone trying to steal my wife’s identity.

* * * * *

I was not amused. Mrs. Hoge was not amused. However, the statute of limitations has run, so this is one less anvil that might drop. There are others still pending.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

I’ve mentioned from time to time that Team Kimberlin is a bunch of liars. This Prevarication Du Jour from six years ago today was about on of the lies they tried to spin about a former member who came back over from the dark side.

* * * * *

BU201503022143ZIn what passes for investigative journalism among the incompetent, Bunny Boy of Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it.) has written that Paul Lemmen is not ordained because he checked with the Orthodox Church in America, and they aren’t aware of Fr. Paul’s ordination.

There are many varieties of Orthodox communions: Greek, Syrian, Coptic, Russian, and Armenian to name a few. Fr. Lemmen’s ordination was not in one of the Russian communions. Since the OCA is a self-governing part of the Russian Orthodox Church, they aren’t aware of his ordination. They also don’t have any records of the ordinations of my cousin’s husband (who is an Episcopal priest) or of Jorge Mario Bergoglio (Pope Francis).

* * * * *

Paul Lemmen was an ex-con who got entangled with Team Kimberlin while on parole, when they threatened to falsely report him for parole violations. Paul was able to break free, and he was the source of significant documentary evidence. He spent his last years as an orthodox priest.

Rest in peace, Paul.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

The whole point of Brett Kimberlin’s attempt to use lawfare and the courts to silence bloggers who wrote truthful posts about him was to protect his online presence, especially a host of websites with DONATE buttons. This post, Dread Pirate #BrettKimberlin, Puppet Master, from eight years ago took a look at TDPK’s sock puppet accounts.

* * * * *

dpk20130206I honestly have no idea how many sock puppets he has. The only one of his secret identities that I’ve ever paid any attention to is Imaginary Friend Occupy Rebellion.

However, it is possible to estimate the number from data on Twitter. @BreitbartUmask has 6,810 followers, so 6,800 sock puppets is a reasonable guess.

* * * * *

The Breitbart Unmasked website is still up, but it hasn’t had any new material posted for over two years. The BU Twitter account hasn’t tweeted for over a year and has lost three-quarters of its followers. Most of what remain seem to be spam or bot accounts.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

One of the more puzzling aspects of dealing with Brett Kimberlin is his clumsy lying. This Prevarication Du Jour dealt with one of the lies he told in a court filing which included an exhibit that proved his claim was false. It ran seven years ago today.

* * * * *

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has filed a motion for a preliminary injunction in the vexatious Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. lawsuit that would require Hogewash! to take down all posts mentioning him that have appeared since 7 July, 2013. Such injunctions are usually not allowed because of the First Amendment.

True to form, the motion he filed seeking the injunction is full of … is full of … of … well, let’s just say there’s a lot of misleading bullshit in it. Consider this bit of nonsense from the end of paragraph 9.BK M4PI-9

His Exhibit E is a page from this, a certified copy of the Application for Statement of Charges and the Statement of Charges in Maryland v. Brett Kimberlin. Given that a Court Clerk won’t give out copies of sealed documents (let alone certify them), you can bet that I obtained the document properly back in October, 2013. The record was only sealed about a month ago. Thus, what I have posted is a legally obtained public document which can be published. All sealing after the fact does is prevent other persons from obtaining further copies from the Court. Meanwhile, the certified record I posted is in the public domain.

The document I published was not under seal. OTOH, Kimberlin has included documents that are still under seal in one of his recent filings in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness. Exhibits O, Q, S, T, U, V, W, and X in Plaintiff’s Response to Defendant Hoge and Walker’s Motions to Dismiss are sealed documents obtained during discovery in the Virginia Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit. They are still under seal. If TDPK really needs them as evidence in the RICO Madness, he should have applied to the court in Virginia to have them unsealed for that purpose. Putting those exhibits in an unsealed court filing is a form of publication.

So let’s get this straight. When I publish a freely available document that is sealed months later, that’s bad. When TDPK publishes documents that he knows are sealed at the time, that’s OK.

Uh, huh.

Ain’t buyin’ it.

* * * * *

Kimberlin leaked sealed documents from one case to Bill Schmalfeldt for publication at Breitbart Unmasked. He tried to get the protective order in the Frey case loosened so that he could use sealed discovery in other cases and so he could get them published online. When he tried to use some of the Frey documents in the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. trial, Judge Hecker told him that he wouldn’t prevent Kimberlin from using them, but that he couldn’t guarantee that Judge Hazel (the judge in the Frey) wouldn’t hold him in contempt for do so. Kimberlin chickened out.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Other than his host of failed LOLsuits, the single most ineffective aspect of Brett Kimberlin’s campaign of brass knuckles reputation management has probably been the Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Boy Unread website. The TKPOTD for seven years ago today dealt with one opportunity Matt Osborne’s inept story telling provided for some pointage, laughery, and mockification.

* * * * *

Xenophon asks a silly and misleading question over at Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it).BU20140114b

This is one of those “have you stopped beating your wife” questions. The defendants in the frivolous and vexatious Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. lawsuit won’t be abandoning any so-called “blog court” strategy because we have never employed one. What we have done is point out some of the false allegations in The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s complaint and some of mind-bogglingly stupid procedural errors he has made. Here at Hogewash!, I’ve tried to do that with a bit of humor and a great deal of sarcasm. The one thing none of the defendants has done is to tip our hand to show what our actual defense strategy might be. We’ll let the court try the case—if it manages to get past the preliminary stages.

Oh, and to save Xenophon from having to ask, yes, I still beat my wife—at Trivial Pursuits. But she beats me at Scrabble.

* * * * *

You know, Kimberlin never has found out what my defense strategies would have been, because none the LOLsuits he filed against got to the point where I had to put on a defense. Most of the first suit was dismissed on summary judgment, and the judge stopped the trail on the remainder when Kimberlin failed to present a case showing that I had made any false statement about him. All the rest of the suits were dismissed for failure to state a claim upon which relief could be granted.

He’s actually very, very lucky that I never had to make my case before a jury.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

The recent  news from my home town Nashville reminded me of this TKPOTD that ran seven years ago today.

* * * * *

One wonders what they’re thinking over at Breitbart Unmasked? Of if there’re thinking? A few days ago, a post with Xenophon’s byline went up that attempted to appropriate the Acme Law theme that I’ve been using to describe the nonsensical legal theories behind Team Kimberlin’s lawfare and apply it to Aaron Walker’s recently filed memorandum in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. lawsuit. (That’s the suit against Aaron Walker, Stacy McCain, Ali Akbar, Kimberlin Unmasked, and me that accuses us of defaming The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin by writing truthful things about him.)

Now, if Brett Kimberlin is known for anything, it’s for being convicted as the Speedway Bomber and for being the guy who lied about selling marijuana to Dan Quayle. So why, one wonders, would his propaganda website include this LooneyTunes clip in a post?

Yeah, the coyote is fiddling with nitroglycerin and TNT instead of Tovex, but still …

* * * * *

I’m not the only one who made a connection between the bombings.
Of course, the Speedway Bomber is an unlikely suspect because his M.O. never included warning potential victims.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

It’s been two years since there has been any new material posted at Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread.One former editor, Bunny Boy (aka Matt Osborne), now styles himself Gender Heretic on the Twitterz and has floated farther from Reality. The other former editor seems to be slipping into permanent forced retirement.

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 having a more significant impact public’s understand of election fraud issues than any of Team Kimberlin’s efforts.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin appears to have consolidated the hosting for some of his web domains on a xeonhosting dot net server in The Netherlands. The pre-2019 versions of jtmp dot org and protectourelections dot org are up. For a few days the DONATE button on the Protect Our Elections site linked to a PayPal account, but it now dead end to a Donate page with no links.

I find it interesting that those two site seemed to have lost their later content. Both had had some material posted in 2019, the POE site was still trying to spin a Russian election hacking story earlier this year. FWIW, there’s noting posted after December, 2018, at breitbartunmasked dot com either. That was when Bill Schmalfeldt began his career move into the part-time radio announcer business..

Speaking of Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread, this Prevarication Du Jour from seven years ago today chronicles one of that site’s many lies.

* * * * *

BU_DanBackerOne of my codefendants in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO lawsuit is DB Capitol Strategies, a firm run by Dan Backer. Dan got on The Dread Pirate Kimberlin’s enemies list because he represented Aaron Walker in his suits against TDPK in 2012.

The picture and caption on the right are from the sidebar Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it.). Like so much of the junk found at that site, it is utterly wrong. The only thing they got right about Dan is the spelling of his name. For example, he did not argue McCutcheon v. FEC at the Supreme Court. According to the Court’s transcript, Erin Murphy did.

Not only are the bozos who run that site liars, they’re not very good liars—as a 30 second Google search often demonstrates.

Fail.

Neither The Dread Deadbeat Pirate Publisher Kimberlin nor the Cabin Boy™ has had much success these past few years.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin foolishly thought that he could file bogus LOLsuits that would silence truthful reporting about him and his past and present activities, but his attempt at brass knuckles reputation management were a disaster. And of course, the “reporting” by incompetent PR flacks he recruited only compounded his failure. The TKPOTD from five years ago today dealt with some of the problems with brietbartunmasked dot com.

* * * * *

I’ve been going over the backups of post that Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Boy Unread has memory-holed in preparation for … well, let’s leave it at I’ve been doing some research.

Here’s another post that has been flushed from the site:BU20130713LawAs the Gentle Reader can see from the date and byline, this was a rant by the Cabin Boy™ from when he was trying to overturn the first peace order issued against him. It’s a marvelous bit of vintage Acme legal “reasoning.” He deftly explains why the court should reverse itself, and he only has two minor problems with his story—the facts and the law. The Gentle Reader who has been following the Cabin Boy™ for the past couple of years may remember that Schmalfeldt’s motion to modify the peace order and his petition for a writ of certiorari for an appeal were both denied in October, 2013, and that my petition for an extension of the peace order was granted in December, 2013.

popcorn4bkThe Gentle Reader may also remember that 57F Osborne has repeatedly promised to follow stories only to drop covering them and memory-hole posts when Team Kimberlin loses at their lawfare. But that’s one of the reasons why this daily feature exists here at Hogewash!.

Stay tuned.

* * * * *

The BU website hasn’t had any new material posted for almost two years.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

OPSEC is a military acronym for Operation Security. Team Kimberlin’s OPSEC is very poor as the TKPOTD from three years ago today demonstrates.

* * * * *

The document below was filed by the Kimberlins as part of a cross appeal in the Walker v. Maryland, et al. case in the Maryland Court of Special Appeals. it contains emails which I showed to Brett Kimberlin during the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. trial and which he identified as being his.

Here are blowups of the address blocks.

Note the BCC addressee: Fintel

When I asked The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin, “What is Fintel?”, he was stunned for a few seconds and finally responded that it was an address he sent email that he wanted to save. When I asked, “So you are Fintel?”, he stammered a bit of a non-response.

I think he had suddenly realized that he had screwed up big time. The emails did not wind up being admitted into evidence because the judge did not allow me to pursue the line of questioning I was trying to develop. However, the Gentle Reader may remember that the Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread About page used to say that BU is owned by Almighty Media. Almighty Media also has another website, the rather neglected almightmedia dot com. As part of my search for the address of Almighty Media for service of process in the recent lawsuit, I issued the following subpoena to its/their web hosting provider.

TDPK filed a motion to quash the subpoena. That motion was denied, but wouldn’t have made any difference. The service provider had promptly provided the billing information which was identical to the the current billing information for the server hosting breitbartunmasked dot com and jtmp dot org.

Fintel Associates?

Hmmmmm.

Stay tuned.

Delusions of competence is a phase that comes to mind.

Oh, and as of 11:51 pm ET Sunday evening—

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

There’s been a bit of growth in Brett Kimberlin’s online footprint. The server in Holland that has been hosting his offshore sites supports five domains. Here they are—

beitbartunmasked dot com

empr dot media

greencasamaryland dot org

kelsiekimberlin dot com

itstime2020 dot org

The DONATE button works at itstime2020 dot org, and the DONATE button at protectourelections dot org now links to the itstime2020 donation account.

Oh, and there’s a Twitter account too!Note that the Twitter account is at least a month-and-a-half old and that, as of 9pm ET yesterday, it still had no followers.

It kinda looks like yet another attempt by Brett Kimberlin to be a player is failing.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

In 2012, the Kimberlin-related web domains were being hosted on an offshore server. Since then, they’ve been moved around to various onshore and offshore hosts, and some of the moves seem to have been triggered by reporting on the sites’ activities here at Hogewash!. Not all of the moves have been well executed. The TKPOTD for seven years ago today was part of this blog’s coverage of a set of hasty changes made after I began reporting on a site called globalpharma dot biz.

* * * * *

It’s been a couple of days since normal access to the Kimberlin-related website hosted in the U. S. went down. It’s been possible to access the sites part of the time using anonymous browsers, but that has often been flaky.

I suppose that when the cleanup is complete, we will at least see the sites with Donation buttons reappear.

* * * * *

At one time, there were almost two dozen Kimberlin-related websites running at the same time. Now, there are only a few unmaintained zombie sites such as breitbartunmasked dot com and jtmp dot org. greencasamaryland had a minor bit of maintenance when it was moved offshore some months ago. protectourelections dot org hasn’t had any new content since February. More telling, the donate page is gone from jtmp dot org, and the donate page is empty at protectourelections dot org. In fact, the only Kimberlin-related site with functioning donation mechanisms is empr dot media, an English-language Ukrainian news site which appears to have ties to activists who were involved in the alleged Ukrainian attempt at interfering in the 2016 Election. BTW, the not-for-profit legal entity formerly know as Velvet Revolution US was renamed Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc. in 2017 and had it’s 501(c)(4) tax-exemption revoked by the IRS is in 2019.

Hmmmmm.

Oh, and there’s more IRS-related news coming. Tune in tomorrow.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Why has Brett Kimberlin attracted such a bunch of losers to Team Kimberlin? Why would he hire such an incompetent as Bill Schmalfeldt as editor of Breitbart Unmasked, and do so more than once? My best guess is that Team Kimberlin is a real world example of the principle that first-rate managers hire first-rate employees while second-rate managers hire third-rate employees. Or maybe it’s an extension of that principle to fourth-rate managers and fifth-rate employees. It was as editorial mistake by Schmalfeldt that forced BU to move to an offshore server rather than give up the identity of its owner in order to file a DMCA counternotice.

Of course, the Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt has had a perfect record so far in copyright disputes. He’s consistently batted 0.000. This Prevarication Du Jour from five years ago today points out what happened in the Hoge v. Schmalfeldt copyright case.

* * * * *

grouch356|201507141854ZThe Cabin Boy™ should be used to that kind of outcome. The settlement agreement for the Hoge v. Schmalfeldt copyright lawsuit granted him nothing of what he sought in his counterclaim, but I got the infringing material taken down—the most important item on my list.

* * * * *

Past performance is no guarantee of future results, but in the Cabin Boy’s™ case, it’s the safe way to bet. I suspect he’ll be no more successful in his current copyright struggle than he has been in attracting subscribers to his latest waste of bandwidth on Youtube. As of 8:30 pm ET yesterday, he still had only 9 subscribers.

 

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

I mentioned in yesterday’s TKPOTD that the evidence I’ve seen leads me to believe that Brett Kimberlin is the person behind the Breitbart Unmasked website and that he has posted content to it and the (at)BreitbartUnmask Twitter account. The TKPOTD from seven years ago today also explored The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin’s connection to BU.

Well, Brett Kimberlin seems to have let his Breitbart Unmasked persona out of its cage. (n.b.: It really doesn’t matter whether the writing is done by Kimberlin or a ghostwriter hireling.) Yesterday, he put up the first post since late April at Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it.), an attempt to slime Stacy McCain and his family. Stacy will no doubt respond with his usual series of tweets asking about the little girl in Indiana whose grandmother was murdered.

Also, during a period of about a half-hour yesterday evening, I received 26 rather bizarre tweets from the @BreitbartUnmask account. I get the general message that Brett Kimberlin isn’t pleased with me or my coverage of his activities. Tough. Back on 1 November, 2012, I blogged that by threatening to SWAT me and then not having the guts to follow through, Team Kimberlin convinced me of their cowardice. I wrote:

As Harry Truman once remarked, “I’ve been shot at by experts.” I’ve dealt with my share of tough guys and tough guy wannabes during my life. They’ve been to jail, and I haven’t. I look forward to seeing TDPK and his thugs and enablers brought to justice, and I intend to have some small part in that. I may have just become his worst nightmare.

Brett Kimberlin can expect that his every move is now being scrutinized. He can also expect to read about his activities here on this blog. He can expect to have the dealings of his “charities” gone over with a fine-toothed comb. I may not be 100% effective, but I am pigheaded enough to keep going. Eventually, justice will win.

Stay tuned.

I’m not done with him yet.
