Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


A year ago today, I ran a post called Why I Blog that discussed how I came to write about Brett Kimberlin and his supporters and enablers.

* * * * *

Because I want to.

More specifically, I took up blogging as a hobby when I was in my mid 60s and approaching retirement. I thought it would be an interesting way to use some of the time that would not be taken up by a day job. I decided to write about stuff that interested me, and if some folks wanted to read it, then the blog would pick up followers. I didn’t expect to monetize the blog.

One of the things that interests me is the First Amendment issues, and writing about one incident wound up changing the nature of Hogewash!. That incident was the patently unconstitutional gag order that Brett Kimberlin received against Aaron Walker. It was a local story, so I covered it. And kept covering The Dread Deadbeat (Pirate) (Performer) (Pedo) Pro-Se Kimberlin as he waged lawfare against various bloggers and mainline media people and organizations who wrote about him. That, in turn, made me a target of Kimberlin and his fanboys, especially Bill Schmalfeldt, and their targeting of me made me part of the story I was covering.

Things haven’t worked out as I expected when I stated Hogewash! in 2011. For the past five years, the bulk of the blog has dealt with Team Kimberlin. That coverage has caused multiple lawsuits, false criminal charges, and a bogus peace order petition to be filed against me, and I’ve monetized the blog to help defray the legal expenses incurred. (BTW, thank you to those who have supported that effort.) While that lawfare is mostly over and settled in my favor, there’s still some to go. Eventually, TDPK and his band of cyberthug wannabes will have lost their final bit of lawfare and will have poisoned their own online reputations via a version of the Streisand Effect on steroids that should be renamed for Brett Kimberlin. Then, I’ll be able to get back to spending more time on other things that interest me.

Oh, two more things …First, it looks as if enough Reality has sunk into the vacuum between the Cabin Boy’s™ ears that he is starting to understand that is more likely that LOLsuit VIII will be dismissed than survive.

Second, the only online use anyone has for Bill Schmalfelt now is as an object of pointage, laughery, and mockification. I will continue to write about him to the extent I find it useful as coverage of Team Kimberlin winds down, but there are now blogs that specialize in keeping track of him, and they are welcome to him.

My post elicited a tweet from the Cabin Boy™ that deserved a round of pointage, laughery, and mockification of his Genuine GS-13 Editing.

Let’s zoom in a bit—Heh.

Heh, indeed.

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


Bullies always whine when they are confronted. They don’t think it’s fair when you hit them back, and indeed, Bill Schmalfeldt was very cross when a court held him accountable for his harassment of me and ordered him to stop. This post called A Snapshot of My Twitter Mentions from five years ago today dealt with some of his whining about that first peace order.

* * * * *

I’m told that Bill Schmalfeldt is now claiming that I’m crazy because he thinks I follow his every word. I don’t, but I do see all of the tweets he sends me. (Click the image to embiggen it.)@wjjhoge_Mentions201311111420Z@WMSBroadcasting is one of Schmalfeldt’s Twitter accounts.

The Cabin Boy seems to think that I’m under some obligation to block him on Twitter. He has things backwards. The peace order issued against him says that he is supposed to avoid contacting me. If that isn’t convenient for him, too bad.

OTOH, I am free to look at his writing, and I occasionally do. The Cabin Boy sometimes writes things in which I have a legitimate interest. For example, Schmalfeldt’s rantings have been a source of leads for the legal team supporting the defendants in the various vexatious lawsuits filed by Brett Kimberlin.

Meanwhile, the adjudicated and confessed harasser keeps flouting that peace order.

UPDATE—Confessed harasser? Yep. He confessed. He posted this email on Twitter last August.BSemail2SAO

As can be seen in the BCC line of that email, the Cabin Boy™ isn’t too sharp on OPSEC either. That gave away … well … let’s just say there were folks who found useful information in that email address.

One of the ways that Team Kimberlin’s lawfare has backfired has related to restraining orders. The trigger for Everyone Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day, the event that focused attention on Kimberlin, was the unconstitutional peace order (that’s what they’re called in Maryland) he had issued against Aaron Walker in 2012. That order was overturned on appeal, and The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin hasn’t had a successful peace order petition since then.

OTOH, Bill Schmalfeldt has collected a dozen or so restraining orders in multiple states since 2013. I was the first person to be able to hold him accountable for his harassment. Of course, he appealed that first peace order, and of course, it was upheld on appeal. And it was extended because of his failure to comply. This post, #BillSchmalfeldt, Ace Legal Scholar, from five years ago today dealt with one of the bogus legal theories the Cabin Boy™ thought would save him from that peace order.

* * * * *

WMSBroad201311091607ZU.S. v. Sullivan? I wonder which of the U.S. v. Sullivan cases the Cabin Boy thinks is applicable to his situation.

In U.S. v. Sullivan, 274 U.S. 259 (1927), the Supreme Court ruled that profits from the sale of illegal liquor were subject to income tax.

U.S. v. Sullivan, 332 U.S. 689 (68 S.Ct. 331, 92 L.Ed. 297), deals with provisions of Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act of 1938.

I wonder if he’s going try to base his defense on being drunk or on drugs?

AFTERWORD—If the Cabin Boy meant New York Times Co. v. Sullivan, 376 U.S. 254 (1964), that deals with defamation, not harassment or failure to comply with a peace order. The appropriate Supreme Court case dealing with obeying court orders is most likely Walker v. City of Birmingham, 388 U.S. 307 (1967).

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.
