Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One of the byproducts of the abundance of lies told by Team Kimberlin has been a recurring feature here at Hogewash! called Prevarication Du Jour. Some days, the lies are so plentiful that I post a Bonus Prevarication Du Jour. He’s one from seven years ago today.

* * * * *

Baghdad Blob has told a couple of whoppers this morning in reaction to today’s Prevarication Du Jour. Let’s examine them in turn.db201401061241ZI have secured a peace order against Bill Schmalfeldt. Reporting suspected violations of that order to the appropriate authorities is a lawful act. Similarly, suing someone who has already been adjudicated as a harasser for harassment would not only be legal, it would about as close to a slam dunk as one can find in a courtroom. The Cabin Boy claimed in his original tweet that he never threatened me, but in the tweet above he admits he did.

Threatening to accuse someone of a crime in an attempt to persuade him to not do something he legally may do is extortion.

In his original tweet, the Cabin Boy also claimed that he never harassed me. During the last court hearing, I submitted three obscene pictures that Schmalfeldt published as evidence of harassment.

db201401061304ZI’ll discuss just one of the images that I submitted as evidence of harassment. I won’t reproduce any part of it because the judge sealed that evidence. It is a picture of two men engaging in homosexual sex. My face had been put on the person on the receiving end of anal sex. I have not complained about having my face photoshopped into every picture that Schmalfeldt ever published—some were actually clever—but I have complained about being grafted into porn. The judge looked at the pictures entered into evidence, the events surrounding their publication, the web pages containing them, and the Cabin Boy’s comments about them, and he found that their publication was harassment.

BaghdadBlob20140105The picture on the left was inspired by Aaron Walker referring to Bill Schmalfeldt as “Baghdad Blob.” Schmalfeldt’s face has been grafted on to a widened version of the body of Muhammad Saeed al-Sahhaf (aka Baghdad Bob). That’s the image Schmalfeldt complains about. Schmalfeldt wants to equate a parody image that ties his track record of making false predictions of legal victories with a notorious propagandist to hard-core porn. The Gentle Reader may draw his own conclusion as to who is the hypocrite.

* * * * *

Gentle Reader, could it be that having dozen restraining orders in five states is having some impact on the Cabin Boy’s™ prospects? Perhaps actions really do have consequences.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The thing that got Team Kimberlin riled up and engaged in lawfare and cyberharassment was having truthful information published about them on the Internet. Their responses to the truth invariably involved lies. There lying became so common that this blog began a recurring feature called Prevarication Du Jour. Here’s the PDJ from seven years ago today.

* * * * *

Perhaps he is relying on the appearance that he has so few assets as to be judgment proof. Perhaps he is relying on a diminished mental capacity defense. Whatever his motivation, Bill Schmalfeldt tells lies.db201401041234ZThat tweet accuses Aaron Walker and me of stealing money. Theft is a crime. If Bill Schmalfeldt has evidence that I have stolen money, he should give that information to law enforcement. If he doesn’t, he would be well advised to publish a retraction.

That tweet accuses Aaron Walker and me of attempting to force someone to commit perjury. That is a crime also. If Bill Schmalfeldt has evidence that I have attempted to force someone to commit perjury, he should give that information to law enforcement. If he doesn’t, he would be well advised to publish a retraction.

Very soon.

* * * * *

I find it amusing that at Schmalfeldt did in fact try use a diminished mental capacity defense in a criminal case, but he withdrew it when the judge told him that she would have to send him off for a ten-day psych evaluation if he entered such a plea.

Team Kimberlin’s presence is slowly fading  from the Interwebz. The number actual Kimberlin-controlled websites continues to dwindle, and the various web footprints of many of his enablers is shrinking. Bill Schmalfeldt still his is theportlypundit Twitter account and his Deep Derp Brain Radio website and Facebook page, but they have essentially no impact.

Meanwhile, Hogewash! and The Other Podcast continue to thrive.

Perhaps The Dread Deadbeat Pirate Protestor Perjurer Performer Publisher Protector Pedo Pro-Se Pipsqueak Kimberlin, the Cabin Boy™, and the rest should have taken the advice in site’s motto: Never pick a fight with a man who buys pixels by the terabyte.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Lawfare was one of the tactics that Team Kimberlin used to try punish those of us who have written about them. Intimidation via cyberharassment was another. Two posts from five years ago today dealt with my experience. The first was titled Cyberthuggery; the second was titled [redacted].

* * * * *

Louis Armstrong once said that he tried to make sure that his mouth didn’t write checks that the rest of him couldn’t cash. That’s a wise approach.

A cyberthug, OTOH, is a wuss who hides behind the physical disconnection of the Interwebz to talk trash. He’ll tell his target about how he’s going to do this or that and how he’ll [redacted] his target up, but a cyberthug runs away when things get real.

Does this sound like anyone you’ve come across on the Interwebz?

* * * * *

For most of this year, I’ve been allowing almost all of the off-color-to-obscene harassing comments to Hogewash! through moderation, but I’ve been redacting things that don’t meet my editorial standard for propriety. A significant portion of the redacted comments are addressed to Mrs. Hoge or are about her. Quite often they deal with her bout with cancer, suggesting that her case is terminal. One received less than a hour ago suggested that this would be our last Christmas together.

That may be. After all, none of us get out of here alive, and given my problems with cardiovascular disease, I’m a prime candidate for a heart attack. Indeed, with Mrs. Hoge’s progress moving into remission following her round of IV chemotherapy, she’s very likely to outlive me. For now, we both seem healthy enough. With luck, we’ll share many more years together. If not, we will have had a great life together while it lasted. We’ll take what comes.

It’s really quite sad to read these comments. They don’t hurt me—they’re clearly from hurting men who have suffered deeply from failed relationships with women. It’s all so pitiful.

* * * * *

Some of those checks are past due and the holder in due course expects to collect on them.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


When I started blogging, I had a talk with my wife about whether I should use a nom de cyber or blog under my own name. We jointly decided I would not only use my own name but that I would also publish my contact information in order to make myself undoxable. It turned out that was a wise choice. Indeed, one of the things about Hogewash! that has frustrated Team Kimberlin is their inability to dox me. The TKPOTD from five years ago today dealt with one of their doxing threats.

* * * * *

BStweets20151212The Cabin Boy™ is once again trying to get this blog (and some others) shut down. Or I should say that he’s tweeting away as if he is. I have no idea whether or not he’s contacted WordPress directly. However, I can say that I haven’t heard anything from WordPress about any complaints.

Schmalfeldt seems to think that he has an absolute right to control the use of his name and image. He doesn’t. Because of Twitter’s ToS, posting anything there grants permission to republish. Thus, the image at the left does not infringe any copyrights. That applies to anything, texts or images, he’s published there.

As for his name, using his name to identify him when referring to remarks he has published in a public forum (such as Twitter, YouTube, or a blog or Internet radio program addressed to the public) is not a violation of his privacy rights. Oh, and look—BS_DBR—he’s published it on Twitter. Say, wouldn’t that mean …

movie popcornThe Cabin Boy™ is running off the rails. Call it a Feldtdown or whatever you wish, but he seems to be spiraling into another misadventure in the courts. That would be most unwise for him, but he’s not known for his wisdom.

Murum aries attigit.

ADDENDUM—After I had finished drafting this post, I was made aware of these tweets over on the Derp Brain Radio Twitter account—dbrtweets20151213The Cabin Boy™ is welcome to post all that information about me if he wishes, but that would be redundant with the information found on the DMCA Contact page of this blog.

However, before he posts such information relating to other people, he might want to consider how those persons might react and what steps they might take in response to such actions.

Oh, and it he’s thinking of suing me again, he should consider what happened the last four times he tried to bring claims or counterclaims against me. Does he really want to make it 0 for 5?

I almost forgot. Family. Photos.familyThe Cabin Boy™ should recognize each of these photo because he has stolen each of them to incorporate in his own work.

* * * * *

There are things about my life I choose to keep private. This blog isn’t one of them.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


This Prevarication Du Jour from seven years ago to deals with one of more lame attempts by Brett Kimberlin’s PR flacks to favorably spin as story.

* * * * *

So Bill Schmalfeldt is spreading a tale about “the feds” going to visit The Dread Pirate Kimberlin to pick up a copy of his RICO suit …DBR201312060236What a waste of time! “The feds” could have simply downloaded a copy from PACER.pacer13-cv-03059_20131205BTW, the Amended Complaint that TDPK filed with the court is not the same as the one he served on me. Maybe “the feds” were doing a version check.

* * * * *

Oh, the FBI has visited Brett Kimberlin. That’s for sure. But I believe I can safely state the visits were not exactly as Bill Schmalfeldt suggested.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The Gentle Readers who are new to this blog may wonder what Team Kimberlin is. Simply put, it’s a group of supporters and enablers of Brett Kimberlin, a notorious criminal and anti-First-Amendment activist. Occasionally, I repost one of the guides to the various members of the Team. This early description, On Job Descriptions, is from seven years ago today.

* * * * *

I’d like to explain to the new members of the Gentle Readership about the job descriptions given to some of the members of Team Kimberlin.

The Dread Pirate Kimberlin received his title after he put up a pirate-themed website called the Bloggers Offense Team. That site is now defunct.

The initial job descriptions of the crew included Neal Rauhauser as First Mate, given his apparent status at the time as TDPK’s righthand man; Ron Brynaert as a Crew Member; and Occupy Rebellion as an Imaginary Friend, given that there were multiple persons behind that identity. Note that these are job descriptions and not nicknames. Referring to Neal Rauhauser as “First Mate” doesn’t give him a nickname any more than calling Al Franken a “Senator” is using a nickname (as calling him “Stuart Smalley” might).

Thus far, only one member of Team Kimberlin has expressed any distress allegedly caused by his job description, one which I did not create. It was given to a crew member who seems to work as a flunky for TDPK and FMNR, and the realization of his place in the food chain probably conflicts with his delusions of adequacy.

* * * * *

Of course, the noisiest member of that crew has been the Cabin Boy Bill Schmalfeldt™.

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.

Get used to disappointment.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One of the more amusing things about watching Team Kimberlin is the harebrained schemes they come up with. A particular favorite of mine was one of Bill Schmalfeldt’s attempts to get the anonymous blogger “Paul Krendler” to sue him for copyright infringement. It appears that he thought that by plagiarizing some of Krendler’s work and copyrighting it, he would be able to get Krendler to begin legal action which would require Krendler to give his true name and address for service of process. However, Schmalfeldt also included work from the blog in his book, so I was able to go after him, and Paul Krendler was able to sit on the sidelines and laugh.

This post On Copyrights from five years ago today tells a bit of the story that shows that Schmalfeldt’s own tale proved that he wasn’t entitled to a copyright in the first place—or that the whole thing was a lie—or both.

* * * * *

I was rereading Confessions of an Undercover Internet Troll, and noticed something interesting about how the blog described in the book got started. The character known as Hoggy hired the author to write the blog, offering to pay him with a cut of money raised via Hoggy’s tip jar. If that’s true, then all of the TMZ blog posts contained in the book should be work-for-hire and, therefore, should belong to Hoggy.

Hmmmmm.

UPDATE—After my conversation with CreateSpace this morning, this is what searching for the Cabin Boy’s™ book turned up on Amazon at 12:15 ET this afternoon.Amazon_Confessions_20151124

Hmmmmm.

* * * * *

Nothing proceeded as the Cabin Boy™ had hallucinated.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One of the striking things about Team Kimberlin is its member’s belief that they haven’t done anything wrong. Indeed, when steps have been taken to hold them accountable for their actions, they often haven’t claimed that they didn’t do what was alleged but that they were justified in doing it. This post about DABDA from seven years ago shows one example.

* * * * *

That’s a acronym for the Kübler-Ross model for the five stages of grief. Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, and Acceptance. Bill Schmalfeldt seems to be oscillating through the middle three. When he pulled the plug on political radio and stopped using @wjjhoge in his tweets, it looked as if he might be moving into the Depression stage, but some of his recent tweets appear to show that he has slipped backward.

I became aware of those tweets when I checked out this link that Stacy McCain sent.@rsmccain201311232037Z

Here’s what I found—DBR20131123So many lies, so little time … I’ll just hit the highlights.

1. I don’t want Bill Schmalfeldt to go to jail for over 350 years, but I do want him held accountable for his harassment. It’s a judge’s job to sort that out, not mine. He is the one who chose to violate the peace order 351 times, to engage in a course of harassing conduct intended to alarm or seriously annoy me, and to do it by means of electronic messages sent to me and received by me. I have merely shown what he has done to the proper authorities.

2/3. I do not recall ever leaving a comment on one of Bill Schmalfeldt’s blogs. Perhaps he is upset because so much of what he publishes makes into my Prevarication Du Jour feature. An easy way to avoid that is to stop lying. If he didn’t want me to know what he was blogging, he shouldn’t have sent me pingback comments or tweets announcing the posts.

4. What makes the Cabin Boy think that I’ve gone to any significant effort to search for his Twitter accounts? There are lots of folks who have been looking for information about him, and some of them share it with me. Of course, it’s trivially easy to do a search for “Schmalfeldt” on Twitter. That returns such interesting accounts as @SchmalfeldtTeam.

5. I prefer not to get into the Cabin Boy’s scatological fixation.

6. I have my reasons.

7. I don’t. However, on any day that I have received a tweet from Schmalfeldt, I have backed up his Twitter account because of his habit of deleting tweets or whole accounts. I’m not the only person who does such logging.

8. If the Cabin Boy believes that I am stalking him, then he probably thinks that Mrs. Walker was stalking Brett Kimberlin when she photographed him stalking her in the parking lot of the Howard County Courthouse. It’s as if he’s saying, “No fair! You’re documenting what I’ve done.”

There’s one other significant, I hope, thing I see in those tweets. They refer to me without using @wjjhoge. Perhaps this means that the Cabin Boy has finally figured out how to write about me without writing to me.

We will see.

* * * * *

The immediate result of the Cabin Boy’s™ behavior was the extension of the peace order. He eventually collected ten more issued in four more states. And he lost LOLsuits I through VIII. Those case are matters of public record.

He now complains that he has trouble passing background checks.

Well, duh.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Gentle Reader, have you ever noticed how bullies think that it’s unfair when they receive a dose of their own medicine? This post about Reiterating Editorial Policy from five years ago today was inspired by whining from Bill Schmalfeldt and his demands that I exercise control over the contents of websites other than Hogewash!.

* * * * *

This blog is about whatever topics I find interesting, and one of those topics is the First Amendment. Among its provisions, that Amendment prohibits the government from infringing on the freedom of speech and the freedom of the press. It does not, however, restrict the editorial policy of this site. The general rules governing the site can be found by clicking on The Fine Print in the menu bar, but I want to reiterate one specific rule not found there: Derogatory comments about the family members of a controversial person who are not themselves a part of the controversy will not be tolerated on Hogewash!—that being said, I have no control over the speech or writings of third parties that is not posted to this site.  TheMerryWidower201511160615ZI can advise against certain behaviors and point out that I don’t engage in them myself, but I can’t order anyone to say or not say or to write or not write anything elsewhere.

Bill Schmalfeldt is a deranged cyberstalker. He is a liar. He is someone who is untrustworthy, who fails to live up to his commitments or abide by agreements he has signed. He had the opportunity to make a clean start when he fled from Maryland to Wisconsin. He appears to have wasted that opportunity.

Murum aries attigit.

Karma is a bitch, and she has puppies.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


It seems that whenever their lips are moving or their finger are touching a keyboard, the members of Team Kimberlin are lying. This Prevarication Du Jour from six years ago today dealt with several lies.

* * * * *

Remember so long, long ago—way back yesterday—when the Cabin Boy™ announced that he was leaving the Interwebz for good? Well, just when you thought it was safe to get back onto Twitter …CBPR201411142230Z

Some of us don’t know that Patrick Grady didn’t come to Maryland because we saw him here today. I saw him when we left BWI airport together just after midnight this morning. I saw him again at Einstein Bros. while we had bagels for brunch. I saw him at the Howard County District Courthouse this afternoon. So did Deputy Sheriff Mays, who served the formal paperwork for The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt’s peace order petition. (Deputy Mays signature is on the return of service paperwork.) So did Judge Mary Reese, before whom Mr. Grady appeared this afternoon.

Of course, there’s also the paperwork trail of a ticket from Midway to BWI on Southwest, the receipt for lodging at the Holiday Inn, and the court order he received when the case was dismissed.

Those pesky facts keep getting the the way of The Narrative.

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


One thing that the members of Team Kimberlin have in common with most other Leftists is their inability to meme effectively. Bill Schmalfeldt, in particular, has been exceptionally incompetent, often resorting to crude pornographic images. Two of the homoerotic pictures he photoshopped my face into were so disgusting that they were placed under seal after being submitted as evidence at a peace order hearing. This post from six years ago today, On the Use of Underage Images, dealt with one of the Cabin Boy’s more spectacular blunders while using stolen images.

* * * * *

Last year, Bill Schmalfeldt photoshopped my face into a couple of pornographic homoerotic images which he published on the Internet. Those images and their publication formed part of the basis for the extension of the peace order against him that was issued last December.

One of the images of my face was lifted from a college year book picture. While the yearbook was published for my sophomore year, the picture may be a file photo that was actually been taken in autumn of 1965 during my freshman year. I turned 18 on 31 December, 1965.

Thus, it is possible that one of the pornographic images Schmalfeldt published contains a juvenile image of me.

* * * * *

IIRC, the jacket I’m wearing in the picture Schmalfeldt appropriated for didn’t fit me after my freshman year.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Of all the lame insults through my way by the members of Team Kimberlin, the one that struck me as the most childish was Bill Schmalfeldt’s Twitter impersonation account reference in this post from seven year ago titled #BillSchmalfeldt Takes a Break.

* * * * *

Or goes into hiding. Or something. PFB201311120200ZHe’s taken his tweets private. That leaves the serial harassment counter set at …S-O-T201311120131ZBTW, the 198 since noon last Friday is not a record. Stacy McCain got over 200 in a couple of days last Thanksgiving.

* * * * *

BTW, the Cabin Boy™ resumed tweeting at me, so when we went for a renewal of the peace order issued against him, we were able to show the judge almost 500 tweets that violated the terms of the court’s order. The judge extended the peace order for an additional six months. Schmalfeldt eventual wound up subject to a dozen restraining orders issued in five states. One was issued to protect a toddler.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One of the easiest targets for pointage, laughery, and mockification of Team Kimberlin has been their absurd claims about the law. Seven years ago today, Bill Schmalfeldt asked a stupid question looking for a citation to case law, and I was able to quickly respond, Oh, Look! Here’s One …

* * * * *

WMSBroad201311101815ZHoge v. Schmalfeldt, Md. 06-C-13-063359, cert. denied.

* * * * *

Heh.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Well, I think at least one reason has become obvious as to why Kimberlin avoided posting anything like this in 2020.

Of course, The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin hasn’t been the only member of Team Kimberlin to offer a bogus reward. This post, Reward Claimed!, is from five years ago today.

* * * * *

wms201511060015Zwms201511060017ZI hereby claim half the reward. The other half should go to Brett Kimberlin for outing me in his Kimberlin v. Team Themis, et al. RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuit complaint.ECF 1-58

I should get my share for verifying my address and phone number. They are are 20 Ridge Road, Westminster, Maryland  21157, and (410) 596-2854. Since I don’t have a SEEKRIT SITE, I cannot provide a non-existent password.

Failure to pay the reward forthwith will be considered proof by the Cabin Boy™ that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin is lying in his complaint.

UPDATE—rsmccain201500060103Z

UPDATE 2—The Cabin Boy™ has verified in a comment below that he won’t honor his reward offer. Furthermore, under the conditions outlined above, he appears to confirm that Brett Kimberlin lied in his RICO 2 complaint.

UPDATE 3—Perhaps the Gentle Reader is wondering why the Cabin Boy™ offered the reward. One might guess that he feels flush with insurance cash, but I don’t think that’s the reason. I think he’s taken a page out of the Team Kimberlin playbook of offering a reward with no intention of paying. I’ll bet he believes that the “reward” gives him a basis for saying that some anonymous person ratted out [insert harassment target’s name here] as Krendler and that it provides cover for his next faildox.

* * * * *

Both Kimberlin and the Cabin Boy™ are deadbeats.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Brett Kimberlin fails and inflicts failure on others because his arrogance entraps him in carelessness. For example, he left bomb making supplies in the trunk of the car he was driving when was arrested for impersonating a DoD security/police officer and wound up with a 50 year sentence for his crime spree as the Speedway Bomber. More recently, he sent an email to Bill Schmalfeldt about a hearing scheduled on one of the restraining orders sought against the Cabin Boy™ and clicked Reply All by mistake, sending his comments to members of the court staff. The TKPOTD for five years ago today showed a part of that email.

* * * * *

This is the header and opening portion of one of the emails submitted to the Ayer District Court in support of the Cabin Boy™ in the Hinckley v. Schmalfeldt Harassment Prevention Order hearing this past week.
SHvBK_1popcorn4bkIt must be some special bit of training at Acme Legal that would lead someone to cc an email to a court referring to one’s friend’s adverse party as a “piglet” whose case is “bullshit.” Such professionalism!

Note that it sent by WhoIsNumberNone. With a “excellent” friend like that, who needs enemies?

* * * * *

Kimberlin used WhoIsNumberNone as a nom de cyber for years. However, he doesn’t seem to have used it publicly for awhile. The @WhoIsNumberNone Twitter account hasn’t seen any activity since a retweet on 9 February, 2017. The account follows three of Bill Schmalfeldt’s abandoned Twitter accounts, the newest from February, 2017.

BTW, According to the Bureau of Prisons inmate locator (which still tracks him because his sentence doesn’t expire until 2030), Brett Kimberlin’s number is actually 01035-079.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


I’m so old, I remember when journalists were still generally called reporters and the good ones at least pretended to take a “just the facts” approach to the news. OTOH, I’m older than any of the alleged journalists associated with Team Kimberlin, so it may be they never really were exposed to good reporting. That may explain the situation discussed in the Prevarication Du Jour from seven years ago today.

* * * * *

Bill Schmalfeldt tweeted this in the context of comments about his using a threat to cause a woman to lose her children unless she gave him him information.ffr201310021523Z

Here’s what Schmalfeldt actually wrote to the woman.BSthreatOBNSchmalfeldt maintains that he was behaving in an ethical manner as a journalist when he sent that message. The Cabin Boy also touts the Code of Ethics of the Society of Professional Journalists. Let’s examine how the tactic he used with this potential source fits within that Code. This item seem applicable.

Journalists should:

— Show compassion for those who may be affected adversely by news coverage. Use special sensitivity when dealing with children and inexperienced sources or subjects.

As near as I can tell, nothing in the story he was “investigating” had anything to do with the woman’s children or whether or not they should be taken from her. It seems that he was simply using the threat as a bludgeon to get her to “play smart” and give him the information he wanted. It’s unclear that she was even a direct part of the story. IANAL, but that message seems very close to blackmail or extortion, and since it was sent via interstate communications, a violation of federal law.

And what compassion was he showing the children who would have been affected by his threats?

But the Cabin Boy says he’s ethical … because JOURNALIST!

UPDATE—Stacy McCain appears to question Schmalfeldt’s journalistic ethics also.

* * * * *

The alleged desire of Cabin Boy™ (Schmalfeldt) and Bunny Boy (aka Matt Osborne) to have access to sealed documents was the reason that Brett Kimberlin cited to a court filing seeking to unseal discovery in the Kimberlin v. Frey RICO Remnant LOLsuit. The court didn’t relax its protective order, so Kimberlin’s fishing expedition failed.

BTW, when Brett Kimberlin tried to use sealed discovery from Frey during the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. trial, Judge Hecker said that the federal court’s order wasn’t his to enforce and that Kimberlin could try to introduce the documents. Then, the judge also noted Kimberlin should consider the possible consequences of disobeying the federal court. Kimberlin chickened out.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


From time to time, I check of the websites and social media accounts of the various members of Team Kimberlin. Yesterday evening was Bill Schmalfeldt’s turn. Given his recent brief period of unretirement, I found the Promoted Tweet served up by Twitter when I check his @ThePortlyPundit account mildly amusing.

Schmalfeldt is 66 now.

Bill Schmalfeldt keep skulking about the country, often failing to leave a forwarding address. That behavior resulted in this Legal LULZ Du Jour posted three years ago today.

Of course, I haven’t had to know where the Cabin Boy™ was living to serve court papers on him. I’ve been able to serve him where he was woking.

BTW, Johnny Atsign tells me that the Soque River is reasonably good trout stream.

Finally, the Gentle Reader should not be surprised to hear that the @ItsTime_2020 Twitter account still didn’t have any followers as of 10 pm ET Thursday evening.

Ah, the Third of September, a dual anniversary. It was on 3 September, 2012, that a person I then referred to as “Some bozo calling himself the Liberal Grouch” came to my attention by threatening. to sue Aaron Walker for defamation. And on this date in 2015, the first defendants were dismissed from Brett Kimberlin’s RICO Retread LOLsuit. I reported on the 2015 hearing in this post titled A Mixed Bag.

Here’s a brief summary of this morning’s hearing in the Kimberlin v. Most of the Universe, et al. RICO Retread LOLsuit.

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberln was sanctioned for $760 in attorney’s fees because he was a no-show at the previous hearing.

The case was dismissed against Michelle Malkin, Twitchy, Breitbart, Glenn Beck, The Blaze, and Mercury Radio Arts for lack of person jurisdiction.

Aaron Walker was told to refile his motion to dismiss for technical reasons.

TDPK has been given 15 days to try to figure out how to properly amend his complaint to get around my motion to dismiss for improper venue.

More details later.

UPDATE—The dismissals for Michelle Malkin and the others were also based on Kimberlin’s failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted.

IIRC, Bill Schmalfeldt never got around to suing Aaron Walker, but Aaron did successfully represent two of the defendants in one of the Cabin Boy’s™ LOLsuits.

Oh, and one of the grounds for dismissal of the RICO Retread LOLsuit for failure to state a claim upon which relief could be granted was that the court found that Brett Kimberlin’s reputation was so bad that he was defamation proof, that is was not possible to defame him.

Meanwhile, the @ItsTime_2020 Twitter account still didn’t have any followers as of 10 pm ET Wednesday evening.

More than any of the other members of Team Kimberlin, Bill Schmalfeldt has been a object of pointage, laughery, and mockification—and the source of opportunities for Shameless Commerce such as this post from six years ago today.

The easiest way to discredit Bill Schmalfeldt is to quote Bill Schmalfelt.

—Stacy McCain

Yep. And the easiest way to quote him wholesale is make his latest book more widely available. Why not let him embarrass himself in his own words?animus_nocendiYou can buy a copy from Amazon by clicking on this link. Of course, the Cabin Boy™ will make a few bucks on each sale, but so will I—and I’ll pass all the earnings through to the Bomber Sues Bloggers  [dead link] fund. [See below.]

UPDATE—The purpose of promoting this book is not to embarrass the Cabin Boy™. To do that, he would need to have a sense of shame, so embarrassment is clearly off the table. No, the purpose is to discredit him.

Any commission payments for purchase of the Cabin Boy’s™ book using the above link made from now until the end of September, 2020, will be donated the Parkinson’s Foundation.

Today is the sixth anniversary of the failure of the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nusiance LOLsuit. The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin had already had five of the seven counts of his complaint thrown out at the summary judgment phase of the case. The remaining defamation and false light claims died when he failed to present any evidence that my codefendants and I has said or written anything thing about him that was false. The judge stopped the trial after Kimberlin rested his case and granted a verdict in our favor.

While the trail was being held, Bill Schmalfeldt was engaged in PR tweeting on Kimberlin’s behalf. I published this post titled The Cabin Boy™ Gets One Right For A Change early in the morning six years ago today before the second day of the trial had started.

He pontificates thusly:rnusa201408111139ZMr. & Mrs. Stranahan, a mother in Wisconsin, a dentist in Pennsylvania, Chris Heather, Ali Akbar, Mr. & Mrs. Causey, Mr. & Mrs. Walker, Mrs. Hoge, and several others were unavailable for comment.

My comment is unprintable.

It took several more losses before either The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin or the Cabin Boy™ began to learn they were punching beyond their reach and fighting in a class well above their intellectual weight. Indeed, I am not sure they have completely grasped the full nature of their folly yet.
