Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Team Kimberlin’s failures at lawfare aren’t limited to The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s LOLsuits. All of the LOLsuits filed by The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt have been spectacular sources of pointage, laughery, and mockification as well. The TKPOTD from two years ago today dealt with LOLsuit VII: Degenrations.

* * * * *

So the Cabin Boy’s™ LOLsuit VII: Degenerations has been voluntarily dismissed without prejudice. I’ll bet that the Cabin Boy™ thinks that means that he can still file another LOLsuit against Patrick Grady and/or Sarah Palmer alleging the same butthurt again. I’ll also bet that he would be wrong.

IANAL, but I can read a law book. When I read Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 41(a)(1)(B), I find these words concerning the effect of a voluntary dismissal:

But if the plaintiff previously dismissed any federal- or state-court action based on or including the same claim, a notice of dismissal operates as a adjudication on the merits.

IIRC, LOLsuit VI: The Undiscovered Krendler targeted both Patrick Grady and Sarah Palmer with claims that overlapped with LOLsuit VII. If I’m understanding FRCP 41 correctly, my characterization of “really most sincerely dead” applies to LOLsuit VII. With an adjudication on the merits res judicata should now apply.

res_judicata_mugsActually, Patrick Grady probably could have relied on res judicata as a defense in LOLsuit VII, because he was targeted in LOLsuit V and LOLsuit VI. Other people are probably also covered to some extent: Eric Johnson (LOLsuits III, IV, and VI), Roy Schmalfeldt (LOLsuits V and VI), Paul Krendler (LOLsuits I and III), Nancy Gilly (LOLsuits I and VI), Howard Earl (LOLsuits III and IV), and me (LOLsuits I and III).

The Cabin Boy™ really is giving The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin a real contest for the title of World’s Worst Pro-Se Litigant™.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

* * * * *

And as I foresaw, the Cabin Boy™ didn’t learn much from LOLsuit VII, and the next year he filed LOLsuit VIII: Avoiding Contact. He lost that one too.

Has the Cabin Boy™ learned his lesson?

It’s Talk Like a Pirate Day, and six years ago today, I ran this post about Talking Like Dread Pirate #Brett Kimberlin.

Arrrrgh! None of the rest of his crew were available for comment.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

I’m #JustABlogger, but Bill Schmalfeldt has claimed to be a responsible journalist. As the DKPOTD from two years ago today shows, he was lying.

* * * * *

Bill Schmalfeldt claims to be a responsible journalist, but he apparently does not subscribe to these points from the Society of Professional Journalists Code of Ethics—

Journalists should:
• Balance the public’s need for information against potential harm or discomfort. Pursuit of the news is not a license for arrogance or undue intrusiveness.
• Show compassion for those who may be affected by news coverage. Use heightened sensitivity when dealing with juveniles, victims of sex crimes, and sources or subjects who are inexperienced or unable to give consent.
• Recognize that legal access to information differs from an ethical justification to publish or broadcast.
• Realize that private people have a greater right to control information about themselves than public figures and others who seek power, influence or attention. Weigh the consequences of publishing or broadcasting personal information.

Let’s look at these in relation to his writings about the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit and the Kimberlins’ motion for a deposition subpoena for Mrs. Walker. Any decent person who reads the unredacted version of the that motion will see that it contains an allegation against Mrs. Walker that is impertinent, immaterial, and scandalous. (And as an eyewitness to the conversation upon which it is based, I’ll add that it’s a lie.) It is inconceivable (and that word means what I think it means) that there could be any other motivation for publishing that lie other than to cause harm and discomfort to Mrs. Walker.

Of course, the Cabin Boy™ is not known for his compassion toward juveniles or victims of sex crimes. He is currently subject to a restraining order that protects a three-year-old child. The article published by Breitbart Unmasked when he was editor alleging that Tetyana Kimberlin was mentally ill when she accused Brett Kimberlin of what would commonly be called statutory rape certainly showed no compassion for her as the victim of a sex crime. Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Boy Unread has taken that post down, but it has been preserved in multiple locations on the Internet.

(OTOH, Hogewash! has tried to redact children’s names to the greatest extent possible. This blog has also redacted the names of third parties mentioned in court filings such as the name of a young woman mentioned in the Walker interrogatories to the Kimberlins.)

In its most general sense, the word ethics means a system of systematizing, defending, and recommending concepts of right and wrong conduct. The Cabin Boy™ is behaving ethically based on his understanding of right and wrong when he publishes these hurtful tweets and posts. What I find most appalling about his behavior is not the acts themselves but his apparent belief that they are virtuous.

* * * * *

To refer to the members of Team Kimberlin as scum would be defamatory—to the algae that make up pond scum.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

One of the reasons that Team Kimberlin lost control of the narrative was their inept use of lies to try to create and maintain their false narrative. The TKPOTD from a couple of years ago today (which was a Labor Day) deals with one of Bill Schmalfeldt’s attempts to spin the coverage of the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit.

* * * * *

ROFLMAO—MM201609050630ZRage? Not hardly!

If I had to characterize the emotion I felt when I found that the Cabin Boy™ had published an unredacted copy of the Kimberlins’ motion seeking a deposition subpoena for Mrs. Walker, I’d say the initial reaction was smug satisfaction from having predicted that Team Kimberlin would publish the document. (Although I thought it probably would be published by Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Boy Unread.) After four-plus years of writing about Team Kimberlin, most of the rage has morphed into weary disgust.

Summer HatAs to what is proved by the incident, I’ll simply say that I’m thankful that the Cabin Boy™ has admitted his source for the document he published on Scribd.

Finally, with his usual flair for inaccuracy, the Cabin Boy™ has got my hat wrong. I normally wear a fedora, and between Memorial Day and Labor Day, it’s usually straw.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

* * * * *

That picture of my hat was taken during a meal at Chik-fil-A. However, most of the calories I’ve consumed while watching the wheels come off of the Team Kimberlin clown bus have been from popcorn. I recommend that the Gentle Reader keep plenty on hand because I’m not done with The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin yet. Click on the image at the right for a good deal from Amazon.

Oh, and it’s after Labor Day, so I’ve switched back to a felt fedora.


Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Ah, 3 September! Today is the sixth anniversary of Bill Schmalfeldt coming to the notice of Hogewash! in a post called More Lawfare Threats From Team Kimberlin.

* * * * *

Some bozo calling himself the Liberal Grouch appears to be a member of Brett Kimberlin’s clown posse, and he’s threatening to sue Aaron Walker for defamation. He believes that Mr. Walker defamed him because he was accurately quoted in postings tweeted by Mr. Walker.

You can find the details of the exchange in question here, including tweets/posts that the Liberal Grouch deleted (perhaps in an attempt to erase evidence?).

Team Kimberlin is saying that they will start a “legal defense fund” for the Liberal Grouch if he sues Mr. Walker. They have the right idea because he will need a defense fund when the counterclaims come back from Aaron Walker.

Oh, and if Bill Schmalfeldt (if that’s his real name) is stupid enough to sue Aaron Walker, I’ll be first in line to make a substantial contribution to the Blogger Defense Team to help defray Mr. Walker’s legal expenses.

UPDATE—@LiberalGrouch tweets that I should read his side of the story. [The original website has been abandoned. The link now goes to a femdom porn site. Viewer discretion advised.] I have. My comments above stand.

* * * * *

The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt never got around to suing Aaron Walker, but Aaron did successfully represent a couple of the defendants in Scmalfeldt’s LOLsuit VI: The Undiscovered Krendler. After all his failed LOLsuits, including four targeting me, you’d think that the Cabin Boy™ would be ready to pack it in. Perhaps, he is. We haven’t seen LOLsuit IX yet.

Stay tuned.

Oh, one more thing … I wish to apologize to all bozos for intimating that Bill Schmalfeldt might be one. I regret my error.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Most of the lies told by the members of Team Kimberlin are so poorly crafted that they are instantly seen through. They just don’t seem to have the mental capacity to be good liars. Indeed, Bill Schmalfeldt’s mental incontinence (not a typo) has been a robust source of pointage, laughery, and mockification. This post from five years ago today deals with an example.

* * * * *

Nomex is a fire retardant material made by DuPont that is used for everything from military flight suits to firefighting equipment. Given how often his pants must be on fire, the Cabin Boy should probably wear Nomex Depends.

He even lies about being caught in his lies.BS201308290237Z

Never pointed out a lie, huh? Here’s one.BS201308261840Z

As I pointed out here, I made no such demand of the Cabin Boy or his web host recently. However, he was sent another DMCA takedown notice from the copyright holder of my headshot that is on the Hogewash! About page last Saturday.

Liar, liar, pants on fire!

UPDATED—Of course, the Cabin Boy tries to lie his way out of this one.BS201308291120ZBS201308291121Z

Pretend for a moment that I did, in fact, contact the photographer who owns the copyright to the picture involved. So what? He has had to send Schmalfeldt a DMCA notice before; he (or his lawyer) may have asked me to advise him of further violations. I could have done so without demanding that anything be done. But suppose I didn’t contact him. The photographer may have been spot checking Schmalfeldt’s blogging and tweeting to look for a further violation himself. Or perhaps someone else tipped off the photographer. Schmalfeldt doesn’t present any evidence of what happened. I doubt that he has any.

Here’s his new lie—”saying that HOGE had the picture taken down” is not what his original tweet said. He writes of my demand that photos be removed. It’s clear from the actual DMCA takedown notice that I did not make such a demand.

Do you see what he’s doing?

He’s saying something, getting caught, and trying to say that he said (or meant) something else.

Oh, one more thing … That tagline, “Such a sad, lonely old man,” reminded me of some lines that seems to fit Sore Loserman Bill. They’re from the Beatle’s song Mean Mr. Mustard:

Always shouts out something obscene.
Such a dirty old man.
Such a dirty old man.

* * * * *

The Cabin Boy’s™ sloppy handling of copyright issues has been a significant problem for him and for Team Kimberlin in general. Not only has he personally hit with multiple DMCA takedowns, but his use of material from Hogewash! while editor of Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Brett Unread resulted in that site having to move to an off-shore server and its sliding into even deeper obscurity.

And none of the DMCA takedowns he’s sent have resulted in a permanent removal of any material.

Maybe mental incompetence would have fit in the first paragraph as well.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

I really have lost count of Bill Schmalfeldt’s failed Inernet ventures—Twitter accounts, websites, podcasts, et al. This post from five years ago today dealt with Yet Another #BillSchmalfeldt Website.

* * * * *

radio-shiloh dot com has signed on. DNS will tune your browser to, the IP address of the Kimberlin-related server that lurks in Arizona. It seems to be yet another hate site with a post up attacking Ali Akbar. The site features Schmalfeldt’s countdown clock for Ali’s doom.

The Cabin Boy has a included a quote from Ko-Ko’s song, Taken From the County Jail, in The Mikado as a caption for a picture of Ali. Being a bass, that reminded me of the refrain from the Mikado’s song, A More Humane Mikado. It fits my dealings with the Cabin Boy.

My object all sublime
I shall achieve in time—
To let the punishment fit the crime—
The punishment fit the crime …

* * * * *

Through the years, the Cabin Boy™ has be both a pain in the neck (or a couple feet lower) but also, as the Mikodo would say “a source of innocent merriment.” He’s truly been a rich source of pointage, laughery, and mockification.

And make each prisoner pent
Unwillingly represent
A source of innocent merriment!
Of innocent merriment!
