Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Every once in a while, Team Kimberlin does something that provides a rich vein to mine for pointage, laughery, and mockification. The TKPOTD from five years ago dealt with it a post that Bunny Boy (aka Matt Osborne) published at Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Boy Unread that resulted in the first BLOGSMOKE episode and a multi-year feature here at Hogewash!.

Xenophon (the Troll) makes a lame attempt at ironic humor over at Breitbart Unmasked with a post (No, I won’t link to it) trying to cast me as the Internet Sheriff of Twitter Town. It has a sort of Blogsmoke theme.

Here’s how we would have done it back when I was working in radio—

And the pointage, laughery, and mockification continues.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


It seems to me that one of the reason that Team Kimberlin has resorted to lawfare in order to deal with their perceived enemies is that they have no effective presence on the Internet. The image on the left is a snippet from the tag cloud at Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread. Note the term Groundswell, a term related to a dead non-story from 2013 has still got a sufficient number of “current” hits to appear in the tag cloud. To put that another way, the site hasn’t had enough traffic since the last post using that term to have knocked it off the tag cloud. (The last post at BU using the term Groundswell is dated in December, 2015, almost three years ago.)

Failing failures gotta fail.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Yesterday, I spent the morning listening to lawyers for a civil rights law clinic and a “constitutional advocacy” not-for-profit spin what seemed to be a set of false narratives in order to attack the civil rights of bloggers and other media people to freedom of speech and freedom of the press. I don’t have much patience with such behavior, especially after being on the receiving end of multiple LOLsuits from Team Kimberlin aimed at suppressing my free speech.

In my case, Team Kimberlin has not limited their false narratives to court filings. The TKPOTD from three years ago today dealt with one of their sillier attempts to smear me via a fictitious post at Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread.

* * * * *

Most of the posts that have been memory-holed by Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Boy Unread are from the era when Bill Schmalfeldt was editor. Indeed, so much of the Cabin Boy’s™ work has been trashed, he’d be an unperson were it not for some of his recent comments to Bunny Boy’s posts.

OTOH, one can understand the embarrassment (and potential liabilities) that could stem from having posts like this on one’s website.BU20130415bombthreatThe post not only misrepresented Aaron Walker’s comment on the Boston Marathon Bombing, Team Kimberlin tried use the comment section to spin a tale connecting me to a bomb threat to a Carroll County courthouse. The following comment by “Texas Tim” took the post way over the top.

TexasTim
The Maryland/FBI Fusion Center is working overtime tonight and Aaron Walker and his patsy William Hoge would be naive to think that they are not getting a real hard look after what happened in Carroll County at 8:30 am this morning. Someone called the county saying that a bomb had been placed outside the Courthouse. This caused the District and Circuit courts to be evacuated and shut down for the entire day while bomb teams searched the area.

So what is making the Fusion Center focus on Walker and Hoge? Well, Hoge’s criminal charges against Rauhauser, Schmalfeldt and Kimberlin were scheduled to be dismissed at 9:00 am in that very Carroll County Courthouse. This, combined with Hoge/Walker’s recent attack on Howard County prosecutors, has some in the intel/LE community convinced that they are behind the bomb threat in order to get back at the Carroll County judges and prosecutors.

Walker and Hoge have a history of attacking anyone who does not agree with them, even for the smallest slight. Well, now that MO is coming back to haunt them.

And to think that Mr. Hoge was not even in the intel database a year ago…..

In fact, the Carroll County bomb threat was made by a Pennsylvania woman who had a court date for driving without a license. Carroll County Sheriff’s detectives quickly identified her, and she was arrested by police in Pennsylvania.

straight jacketAs bizarre as the Texas Tim comment seems, it’s really no more wacky that any of Brett Kimberlin’s other claims about Aaron Walker or me. According to his latest hallucinations, I’ve moved from being on that intelligence watch list to being an intelligence operative or contractor tasked with watching him.

I couldn’t make that kind of stuff up if I tried.

Lying liars gotta lie.

And incompetent liars gotta get caught.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Throughout The Saga of Team Kimberlin, one common thread has been pointage, laughery, and mockification of The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s inept lawfare and his “reporters” (at sites such as Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread) ludicrous attempts to put a positive spin on those failed LOLsuits. Take the TKPOTD from three years ago as an example—

* * * * *

Here’s another post that has been memory-holed over at Bretibart Unmasked Bunny Boy UnreadBU20121206wingnutsThe post celebrates the dismissal of the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. suit filed in Virginia against The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin. Indeed, Kimberlin did win a couple of suits filed against him in 2012, but he lost everything he filed against anyone in 2012, and he’s lost everything else he’s filed that has been decided since then.

Kimberlin v. Walker (I) peace order petition—Denied

Kimberlin v. Walker (II) peace order petition—Denied

Kimberlin v. Norton peace order petition—Denied

Kimberlin v, Walker, et al. nuisance LOLsuit—Summary Judgment and Directed Verdict for Defendants Walker, McCain, Ali, and Hoge

Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club, et al. (I) RICO Madness LOLsuit—Dismissed against Defendants National Bloggers Club, Ali, McCain, Walker, Malkin, Twitchy, Erickson, RedState, Beck, Mercury Radio Arts, The Blaze, Nagy, Stranahan, Backer, DB Capitol Service, Breitbart, Ace of Spades, and Hoge and Partially Dismissed against Defendant Frey. Appeal to the Fourth Circuit—Denied

Kimberlin v. Hoge peace order petition—Denied

Kimberlin v. Home Depot—Dismissed

Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club (II) RICO Retread LOLsuit—Dismissed against Defendants Breitbart, Malkin, Twitchy, Beck, Mercury Radio Arts, and The Blaze

Also, all the criminal charges that TDPK has tried for file against either Aaron Walker or me have been thrown out.

wingnutIt’s seems that we wingnuts who have been predicting the failure of Brett Kimberlin’s lawfare have a pretty good track record. Since 2012, he’s batting 0.000, and we’re batting 1.000. TDPK may get a few hits before the game gets called, but he’s still going to lose more that he wins going forward.

If I weren’t one of the targets of his lawfare, I might find this more amusing.

Stay tuned.

UPDATE—The scrapbook of more recent events would include this:

* * * * *

All of the LOLsuit Kimberlin filed since that post was written have failed as well, as have The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt’s LOLsuits I through VIII and his peace order petition against Patrick Grady.

Losing losers gotta lose.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


It’s been reported to me that Bill Schmalfeldt has lost his Wisconsin reporting gig and will be remaining on “retired” status, so it appears that the Cabin Boy™ will be applying all of his GS-13 editorial skills to Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread for the time being. He’s written another hit piece on Lee Stranahan in response to Lee’s reporting on The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin’s claims of working with the Department of Justice (through a hacker organization known as “The Protectors”) to “protect” the integrity of elections in 2016 and possibly this year.Of course, the Cabin Boy’s™ piece has the look of a shoddy bit of creative writing with only limited connection to the Real World.

Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


It appears that The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin has given the keys to Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread back to Bill Schmalfeldt. One of the Cabin Boy’s™ first stories after his return is titled Will Anticipated Stone Indictment Also Ensnare Stranahan? (No, I won’t link to it.)

It’s not surprising that Schmalfeldt would put up a piece recycling a substantial number of his previous lies about Lee Stranahan. He’s been attacking Lee ever since Lee organized the Everyone Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day blogburst back in May, 2012. Lee recently has been doing some reporting on the connections between Brett Kimberlin and a Ukrainian/American operative for the Democratic Party, so I’d expect so pushback from Team Kimberlin.

The I’m Not Making This Up, You Know post from a year ago today dealt with a previous attempt by Schmalfeldt to smear Lee.

* * * * *

In yet another futile attempt to imitate an investigative journalist, the Cabin Boy™ has published a bogus exposé about Lee Stranahan over at Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread. The thesis of his article is that Lee sought derogatory information concerning Dan Backer from Brett Kimberlin. What actually appears to have happened is that Kimberlin sent Lee an unsolicited email and that Lee exploited that contact to get information.

A bit of background: Lee is an real investigative reporter who has written about Brett Kimberlin and was the blogger who suggested the Everyone Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day blogburst in 2012. Dan is a lawyer whose practice involves election campaign law. Both Dan and Lee have been my codefendants in multiple LOLsuits filed by the Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin, and Kimberlin still owes sanctions to Dan and me. At the time Kimberlin contacted Lee, one of those LOLsuits was in process.

Now, back to our story …

On the morning of 3 March, 2014, Lee tweeted this—

Later that day, there was an exchange of emails between Brett Kimberlin and Lee related to Dan. Schmalfeldt’s fantasy tries to use that set of emails to show that Lee sought information from TDPK to use against Dan. However, that isn’t what the evidence shows.

It’s obvious that Kimberlin is the source of the emails. Only he and Lee are parties to them, and it’s safe to bet that Lee didn’t give them to the Cabin Boy™. Apparently sensing an opportunity to sow discord between two of the codefendants in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness LOLsuit, TDPK initiated the chain of emails several hours after Lee’s tweet. Lee’s replies to Kimberlin unsolicited contact are non-committal, but they result in TDPK finally sending Lee a dump of opposition research targeted at Dan and his firm. Some of that information turned out to be related to a story that Lee was working at the time, and he used it. And that, Gentle Reader, is how investigative reporting is often done.

Two things stand out in the Cabin Boy’s™ article. The first is his envy of Lee Stranahan’s success as a working journalist. The second is Brett Kimberlin’s rising level of frustration that he cannot attract positive coverage and that his attempts to smear his enemies keep failing.

The Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread about Lee Stranahan is one more failure.

UPDATE—While checking my Twitter timeline during lunch, I noticed that this post has produced a bit of a Feldtdown in which the Cabin Boy™ demonstrates his complete misunderstanding of what the “evidence” he included in his Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread post actually shows.

No wonder he’s never been able to keep a real reporting job for long.

It must really frustrate TDPK if Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread as run by the Cabin Boy™ is the only outlet that he can convince to take an interest in his false narratives.

UPDATE 2—As his Feldtdown continues, the Cabin Boy™ wonders why I haven’t offered any evidence to refute what he posted at Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread. The reason is quite simple—no additional evidence is required to deal with his self-refuting article.

It’s a good thing that I restocked during lunch.

* * * * *

Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread never lets facts get in the way of spinning a narrative.

BTW, I’ll bet the answer to the question posed in the title of the Cabin Boy’s™ recent post about Lee is “No.”

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Cabin Boy™ Bill Schmalfeldt famously described Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Brett Unread as his “prime source for news, hearsay, lies and innuendo. Oh, yeah, and smears, too.” For the vanishingly small number of people who occasionally look at the site, its false narratives are more typically the subject of pointage, laughery, and mockification. Almost anything found there is mind-bogglingly wrong. This Prevarication Du Jour from five years ago today cites but one example.

* * * * *

Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it.) is now featuring a sockpuppet “lawyer” in its comment section called RogerS. (H/T, Patterico). Here’s the beginning of one his bits of “advice” to The Dread Pirate Kimberlin concerning the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO suit.BU_RogerS201310220228Z

I certainly hope that TDPK takes that advice about getting the FBI involved in investigating his claims. Of course, that’s not going to occur. The last thing Brett Kimberlin wants is the FBI looking into what’s been happening.

And it’s almost a shame that TDPK has used up the one amendment (without court permission) to his complaint allowed under Rule 15. There are a lot of people who would pay to see Ken White go after Kimberlin in court.

Lame.

* * * * *

Yeah. I would pay good money to see Ken White go after Brett Kimberlin in court. Who knows …
