Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Alinksy’s Rule 5 states that “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon,” and pointage, laughery, and mockification have been key tools in confronting Team Kimberlin’s lawfare. Take Exhibit J from four years ago today for example.

* * * * *

I normally would save something like the following for a Team Kimberlin Post of the Day, but I’ve been laughing so hard and shaking my head for so long over this one that I’m going to share it now.

I’ve been slogging my way through The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s responses to four of the motions to dismiss the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness. In paragraph 23 of his Response to Defendant DB Capitol Strategies Motion to Dismiss TDPK tries to allege that DB Capitol Strategies was engaging in fraud because it operated a legal fund in support of Aaron Walker’s suits against Brett Kimberlin in 2012. He cites as evidence his Exhibit J, a blog post from Crooks and Liars.Exhibit JThe best “evidence” he can come up with an unsourced blog post by Matt Osborne, Alex Brant-Zawadzki, Bill Schmalfeldt, and Melissa Brewer?

#ROTFL

* * * * *

In the end, The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s inept court filings were not only occasionally comic, they’ve been total failures. Of the dozen civil cases he’s filed since the beginning of 2012, only two survived motions to dismiss. Of those two, the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. trial was terminated in the defendants’ favor because TDPK failed to state a case that could go to a jury, and the Kimberlin v. Hoge peace order petition was denied because he could not show that I had engaged in harassment of Tetyana Kimberlin’s daughter.

Failing failures gotta fail.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


I’m just a blogger these days, but 50 years ago I was working in radio news. One of the things I learned to do was to verify the credibility of my sources. As this post On the Vetting of Sources from two years ago today shows, Team Kimberlin has never let the truth or trustworthiness of a source get in the way of a story.

* * * * *

Back when I was working in radio doing news, one of the most important things I was taught to do was to vet a new source as thoroughly as possible and to stay on top of old ones. People sometimes lie when it’s to their advantage.

The Cabin Boy™ claims that the 3per screenshot from an account was alleged to be mine was sent to him by a source. That may be true. There’s some evidence to support that. If one examines the html code for the webpage that he published, one finds this as the URL for the screenshot:

http://i2.wp.com/thepontificator.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/Screen-Shot-2016-01-19-at-10.38.06-AM.png?resize=780%2C453 [Broken link. File memory holed by the Cabin Boy™.]

The name of the image is consistent with the default naming convention used by Mac OS X, and it timestamps the image at 10:38:06 am. However, the timestamp for the posting on the image itself is 12:36 pm. So either the screenshot was taken almost two hours before the post existed, or it was taken by a computer which had its clock set to the Pacific Time Zone.

Here’s another interesting bit of data. The Cabin Boy™ included another screenshot from the 3per forum in subsequent post, and the timestamps on the post captured and his image both align in the Central Time Zone.

Now, it could be that the Cabin Boy™ just happened to reset his computer’s clock between 12:38 and 2:46 pm yesterday, but another possible explanation is that the first screenshot was sent to him by someone west of the Rockies. That would absolve him of creating the forgery, but convict him of negligence in vetting his source (at best) or conspiracy with his source in publishing the forgery.

Either way, Bill Schmalfeldt has made a fool of himself again by participating in the creation of false evidence, in this case by possibly engaging in identity theft.

Exit question: Who in the Pacific Time Zone would do such a thing?

UPDATE—Another possible explanation for the timestamp offset would be the use of a Mac that was physically in another time zone but still had its clock set to the default Cupertino time.

UPDATE 2—The Cabin Boy™ seems to believe that he is owed sort of explanation from me when some third-party trolls him.NQ201601201517ZThat belief is thoroughly, totally, and utterly wrong. I have no obligation to do the research for his “investigative reporting” for him. If he fancies himself a real journalist, he can do some real basic journalism.

Moreover, I find it amusing that after all of his protestations of how I have supposedly lied about so many things, he wants to rely on my word as a check on the veracity of anything.

I couldn’t make this stuff up it I tried.

UPDATE 3—Why does the Cabin Boy™ think that my experience in broadcasting was similar to his?NQ201601201835ZAmpex 300It’s true that I’ve done my share of rip’n’read newscasts torn from an AP or UPI teletype, especially when I was covering the midnight to 6 am shift. It’s also true that I’ve spent my share of time schlepping a battery-powered tape recorder around recording events and doing interviews. I’ve spent hours with a razor blade, slicing block, and an Ampex 300 or 351 tape machine (the old kind with tubes) editing stories for the 15 minute newscast at 6 or 10 pm. I was doing all this before the Cabin Boy™ got out of middle school.

It’s really quite sad that the Cabin Boy™ can’t seem to find anything positive to write about, but … oh, let’s just leave it at he’s in a truly sad situation.

* * * * *

His Internet footprint keeps shrinking. When will it reach the event horizon and implode into a black hole?

Get some more popcorn and stay tuned.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Every means The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin has used to try to sell the false narratives he has created to attack those of us who have fought against his use of lawfare to suppress ourFirst Amendment rights as failed. Abjectly. For example, he has repeatedly tried to spin my effort to have the peace orders issued against Bill Schmalfeldt enforced as proof of malice toward TDPK. The TKPOTD from three years ago today focused on TDPK’s attempt to sell that narrative during his direct examination of me during the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. LOLsuit. (Direct examination? Yes, he called me as one of his witnesses.)

* * * * *

This exchange occurred when The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin put me on the stand as his witness during the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit that he lost last August.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Have you filed any, do you know a reporter named, or an individual named Bill Schmalfeldt?

MR. HOGE: Yes.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Have you filed 367 criminal charges —

MR. OSTRONIC [my lawyer]: Objection.

MR. KIMBERLIN: — against Bill Schmalfeldt?

THE COURT: Sustained. That is the most leading question I have ever heard.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Okay, have you filed any charges against Bill Schmalfeldt?

MR. OSTRONIC: I’m still going to object.

THE COURT: Sustained. You can’t tell the person the answer to the question in the question.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Okay, okay —

THE COURT: That’s what a leading question is.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Do you know Bill Schmalfeldt?

MR. HOGE: Yes.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Have you ever filed any charges against him?

MR. HOGE: Yes.

MR. OSTRONIC: Objection.

THE COURT: Overruled.

MR. KIMBERLIN: How many?

MR. HOGE: It’s some place north of 360 for multiple violations of a peace order.

MR. KIMBERLIN: So 367 criminal charges. My question what were the results, simple question were they nolle prossed?

MR. HOGE: At my request.

MR. KIMBERLIN: And you filed, why did you file, what got Mr. Schmalfeldt on your —

MR. OSTRONIC: Objection, Your Honor, this can’t be — defamation of him.

THE COURT: Sustained. What does Mr. Schmalfeldt have to do with this?

MR. KIMBERLIN: Okay, I’m only trying to show that these individuals attack anyone who supports me. He’s a reporter. He wrote a story —

MR. OSTRONIC: Objection.

THE COURT: Well that’s not a cause of action.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Okay, and what happens?

THE COURT: It’s not a cause of action whether they – – even if they did that it’s not a cause of action.

MR. KIMBERLIN: It goes to malice. It goes to malice, Judge.

THE COURT: For someone else to be, no. Ask another question, if you have one.

TDPK tried to convince the court that my efforts to have a peace order enforced against Bill Schmalfeldt was proof of malice against Kimberlin.

* * * * *

The court’s question about what Schmalfeldt had to do with the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. case had two answers. The first answer, responding to the immediate claims TDPK was making in that LOLsuit, was nothing. The second, in the sense of background to Team Kimberlin’s overall campaign of lawfare, was quite a lot. TDPK was very lucky that the court shutdown that line of questioning.

Nothing proceeded as TDPK had imagined.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Team Kimberlin tells lies. They even lie to each other as is show in this Prevarication Du Jour from four years ago today. Back then, the Cabin Boy™ was trying to raise money online to finance a LOLsuit against me.

* * * * *

As I noted earlier, Bill Schmalfeldt doesn’t seem to be getting much support from his Internet buddies with his Baghdad Blob’s Bleg trying to raise $25,000 to fund a lawsuit. My earlier post brought in fifty bucks from Matt Osborne, but that’s it.wilsb8_201401070053ZLet’s pretend for a moment that Very Ordinary Seaman Ferguson is telling the truth. He follows the @DespicableBill account, so the Cabin Boy’s tweets have been showing up in VOSF’s timeline. VOSF’s not knowing would be the result of ignoring dozens of tweets over the last few days.

OTOH, if we were to scroll through @wilsb8’s tweets, we would find this—wilsb8_201401050223ZReading that exchange sorta/kinda pokes a hole in any rational belief that VOSF was unaware of the Cabin Boy’s fundraiser. In spite of the likelihood that the Cabin Boy will accuse me of “blind unreasoning hatred,” it seems reasonable to conclude that VOSF lied.

Oh, the premium that the Cabin Boy was offering was his urinal calibration target.

* * * * *

I couldn’t make this stuff up no matter how hard I tried.

UPDATE—Oh, look what I found held in Moderation:Note that while the comment is snarky, it doesn’t try to refute the facts of today’s post. Yes, the mockery continues—but not in the way that Team Kimberlin wishes,

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


I went over to elpasointernetradio dot com to check on how it was doing and found that the site is now titled Langston Hews: The Voice. The site announces a “new voiceover venture” and asks that it be bookmarked for upcoming 2018 projects. The photograph of Hews appears to show Bill Schmalfeldt.

It was just a few weeks ago that Schmalfeldt announced his retirement from Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Brett Unread, and a few days later, the “Langston Hews” byline appeared at BU.

You know, this reminds me of the Prevarication Du Jour from a year ago today.

fmp201701061548zSpeaking for myself, it’s never particularly bothered me to be called a liar by a pathological liar. However, I do have a problem with being falsely accused of crimes.

I so old I remember when the Cabin Boy™ testified under oath that he had difficulty speaking because of a degenerative illness.

Yep. Lying liars gotta lie.
