Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Neal Rauhauser’s name came up in yesterday’s TKPOTD. It also came up nine years ago today.

RICOMadnessIt seems that Neal Rauhauser has been trolling for a pro bono lawyer for a friend.@nealrauhauser201312142117Z
IANAL, but the ones I’ve talked to say that anyone with a righteous libel claim against a defendant with deep pockets should have no trouble finding a lawyer willing to represent him on a fee-contingent basis. Pro bono representation is generally provided to defendants rather than plaintiffs. Of course, those observations come from many of the same lawyers who told me that the reason they suspect that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin is pro se is that he can’t find a lawyer willing to risk his law license by signing court papers making the unfounded allegations Kimberlin is bringing.

Certain peoples’ prurient interest in children as sexual objects keeps coming up as well.

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.

Justice Through Music Project and Child Porn

Over at the Justice Through Music Project website (I read it so you don’t have to, and, no, I won’t link to it.) there’s a blog entry that dredges up a story from last year about Pete Townsend speaking out about his arrest for visiting an illegal porn site in 1999. Mr. Townsend received a “police caution” and spent five years on a sex offender registry.

Funny how JTMP would bring that up just now.

Brett Kimberlin, the “charity’s” Director, has been accused of having sex with an underage girl, and Craig Gillette, who has been associated with the organization apparently since Day One, has been been revealed as an ex-con who served time for possession of child pornography and as an unregistered sex offender. Sources indicate that Messrs. Kimberlin and Craig met in prison.

The blog post asks,

What does everyone think? Should people be able to move on with their lives?

Or do some actions need to have continuing consequences?

#BillSchmalfeldt and Porn

As of the drafting of this post, Cabin Boy Bill Schmalfeldt has not made any effort to distance himself from Pedi Officer No-Class Gillette, another member of Team Kimberlin who did federal time for possession of child pornography and who has now apparently failed to register as a sex offender. The Cabin Boy himself has published images that are not merely pornographic; some, he admits, were designed to be obscene.

I have been the subject of at least three such images. When he received a DMCA takedown notice from the copyright owner of the first image he had altered, he retaliated by photoshopping my face into a homoerotic image. (Gay sex and anal sex seem to be a recurring theme with Schmalfeldt.) He took that down at the request of the copyright owner of the video from which my face had be taken, but when a public domain image of his face remained posted here at Hogewash!, he retaliated again by photoshopping a different image of my face into a second homoerotic picture. Use of my likeness without my permission in that case violated the Terms of Service of the web hosting company he was using, so I filed a complaint. I’m not sure what exactly happened, but the picture came down.

Bill Schmalfeldt says he doesn’t work for Brett Kimberlin. That may be literally true. He could be paid by Justice Through Music Project. Or Neal Rauhauser. Or he could be an independent contractor, as if these guys would send him a 1099 instead of a W-2. Or he might be getting in kind payment, such as free web hosting on the Team Kimberlin Dutch server. Or paid legal support. Or he might be stupid enough to be an unpaid volunteer. Regardless of how (or if) he is compensated, he certainly seems to be an associate of Brett Kimberlin and to be doing his bidding. That would mean that he is teamed with a pedophile and a convicted child pornographer.

He’s denounced pedophilia, but claims The Dread Pedo Kimberlin isn’t a pedophile. (He hasn’t seen the evidence that I have, and by evidence I don’t mean the uncorroborated testimony of a single individual.) However, he has not denounced child pornography, and Craig Gillette pleaded guilty to possession of kiddie porn.

Given the Cabin Boy’s own affinity for porn, one wonders why he won’t simply say that child pornography is over the line in the same way pedophilia is. Unless, of course, …

UPDATE—Bill Schmalfeldt has finally come out against child pornography.
