Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Six years ago, Bill Schmalfeldt was off on a Kimberlin-is-Hoge’s-white-whale tangent. The Cabin Boy™ was apparently triggered by a graphic which I believe was created by Kimberlin Unmasked and that appears to have really gotten underneath The Dread Deadbeat Pirate Kimberlin’s skin. Indeed, TDPK sent me a copy of that graphic during discovery in the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. case as evidence he planned to use for his defense in that lawsuit.The TKPOTD for six years ago today was my response to the Cabin Boy’s nonsense.

Cabin Boy Pip Bill’s latest idée fixe is that I’m obsessed with Moby Brett. If that were the case, I’d have added one of these to my gun collection by now.Whaling_harpoonImage Credit: Stahlkocher (GNU Free Documentation License)

I hear that those things are a bit of overkill on manatees.

Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread is in one of its dormant phases now, but when it’s publishing, it’s a primary source for Team Kimberlin’s false narratives and lies. This Prevarication Du Jour from five years ago today spotlighted one of the howlers told by Matt Osborne when he was hiding behind the nom de cyber of Xenophon. (Note: Xenophon was a famous Greek general, and Matt Osborne is a mediocre historian and a soldier who couldn’t manage to get promoted to Sergeant in ten years.)

* * * * *

Xenophon the Troll is channeling the Amazingly Inaccurate Criswell again over at Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it.) This time the nonsense has to do to with First Mate Neal Rauhauser’s attempt to gen up some sort of connection between the Kimberlin Unmasked identity and a real person.BU20140127That’s an ambitious undertaking—foolhardy, because there’s nothing to find—but it’s ambitious. You see, Team Kimberlin has already run afoul of the GIGO principle: garbage in, garbage out.

OK, what do I mean by garbage in? Consider these bits of data:forgedTwitterIPThe account_id is the correct one for @Kimberlinunmask. However, the login time is on 24 December, 2013. The @Kimberlinumask account was suspended on that day, and it’s not possible to login to a gulaged account.

While it’s not quite as obviously stupid a submitting two versions of the same document to the same court in the same case or as mind-bogglingly crude as failing to remove a PACER legend and using the wrong typeface to create a do-it-yourself court summons, it is … well … it’s kinda amateurish.

The incompetent navigation guiding The Dread Deadbeat Pirate Kimberlin’s ship of fools keeps running aground on the Rocks of Reality. The Truth is not their friend.

It seems that even people who want to believe Brett Kimberlin eventually figure out that he’s a liar. This post from six years ago today titled Dread Pirate #BrettKimberlin, Storyteller was taken from Kimberlin’s authorized biography.

* * * * *

From listening to him in court, reading his court filings, and viewing his web sites, it seems to me that TDPK is making stuff up as he goes along. Mark Singer came to a similar conclusion in his book Citizen K. The following is from a section that begins at the bottom of page 335.

I came to this conclusion:

The Quayle story was Kimberlin’s most successful creation, the invention that propelled him further than any other. Someone he knew, but not Kimberlin himself, had either sold or claimed to have sold pot to Quayle—and he appropriated this for himself. …

I spent four years asking questions about Kimberlin, and along the way I never met a soul who could offer genuine corroboration of the fable that brought his to my attention in the first place.

Brett Kimberlin is a storyteller, a teller of tall tales, but not a very good one. He sometimes has trouble remembering what he said to whom when. Of course, if one tells the truth, that’s less of a problem.

Lying liars gotta lie.

Brett Kimberlin was tagged with the nickname “The Dread Pirate Kimberlin” back in 2012 when he created a pirate-themed website for his Bloggers Offense Fund. He’s since been referred to as The Dread Performer/Publisher/Prevaricator/Protestor/etc. Kimberlin, and after he failed to pay court sanctions and fees that he owes for the frivolous LOLsuits and appeals he’s waged, “Dread” became “Deadbeat.”

For the past year or so, the Dread Deadbeat [insert word beginning with P] Kimberlin appears to have been trying to keep a lower public profile since losing every one of the LOLsuits he filed between 2012 and 2016. He may have learned that pro se litigation is an ineffective method of intimidation against a defendant determined to stand up for his First Amendment rights.

Just because he’s been trying to fly below the radar doesn’t mean that he hasn’t been observed. Interesting things may unfold this year.

Meanwhile, here’s an image that has appeared from time to time at Hogewash! to illustrate the results of Team Kimberlin’s activities. It sums up TDPK’s career—

Stay tuned.

One of the reasons that I have ridiculed The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin is that his behavior has been ridiculous. It has been all along as was described in this post from six years ago today titled The Unique Criminal History of Dread Pirate #BrettKimberlin.

* * * * *

brett-kimberlin-terrorist-in-security-guard-uniform1TDPK was busted by the FBI and U. S. Army CID for impersonating a Department of Defense police officer when he tried to have some documents copied at an Indianapolis print shop. It was that arrest that led to a search of the car that he was driving. That search turned up the bomb making materials that led to his being charged as the Speedway Bomber.

Mark Singer adds this on page 94 of his book Citizen K:

Halloween was still a few weeks away, but Brett was already in costume. He had on navy-blue trousers, a medium-blue short-sleeved shirt with a sew-on cloth Department of Defense Police shoulder patch, and a gray wide-brimmed felt hat. The overall effect—especially the Smokey the Bear flourish of the hat—bordered on slapstick. The eventual charges against Kimberlin were impersonating a Department of Defense officer, illegal possession of military insignia, and illegal possession of a facsimile of the Great Seal of the President of the United States. The latter two offenses were so obscure that Kimberlin said his later search of case law turned up no other criminal prosecutions under the relevant statutes—a statistic that seems to fit the novel circumstances under which he got himself busted.

Others have been convicted of terrorist crimes such as bombing, others have been convicted of impersonating government officers, but to be the first, and only, one convicted of illegal possession of the Presidential seal … Now, that’s a unique place in the annals of crime!

UPDATE—Mark Singer notes the “slapstick” appearance of TDPK in his getup. I note that his beard is a sufficiently gross violation of the grooming standards in place at the time that no DoD personnel, military or civilian, would have believed he was for real.

That silly costume fooled no one except The Dread Deadbeat Prevaricator Kimberlin himself.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Early on in this blog’s coverage of The Saga of The Dread Deadbeat Pirate (Pro-Se) Kimberlin, I warned him about the public mockery that would result fit he continued a campaign of lawfare against the First Amendment rights of his critic. This post from six years ago is just one example.

* * * * *

I’m gonna cut to the chase. Here is Defendant Kimberlin’s Response to Plaintiff’s Motion to Deny Motion to Dismiss and Motion for Protective Order for Failure to Follow Rules 4:15 [sic] in the Virginia Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. case. Scroll down to paragraph 8.

<fisking>

Incredibly, …

What’s so incredible that a blogger who has been covering this lawsuit would continue to do so? The hearings are public events. The court documents not under seal are public documents.

… Plaintiff’s associate, William Hoge, …

I suppose that I am associated with Aaron Walker in that I have come to see him as a friend over the past few months. However, I have no interest in his lawsuit with TDPK other than my support for a friend’s First Amendment and other legal rights.

… who was at the hearing with Plaintiff, …

Well, yes, I was at the hearing, and after schlepping all the way from Westminster, MD, to Manassas, VA, I went to lunch with him that day also. I plan to be at the hearing this Friday too.

… has since posted more than a dozen blog posts about this case, …

Sure have. More on the way.

… including many that discuss Defendant’s discovery filings, his response to that discovery and how dire the Defendant’s legal problems are due to his failure to understand or follow the rules.

I have not, however, disclosed the contents of any of the discovery. I don’t have access to any of those sealed documents, and even if I did, I would respect Judge Potter’s order to keep discovery confidential. TDPK is the one who has included material from sealed documents in open filings.<fisking>

<mockery>Dear Dread Pirate Kimberlin:

If you wish me to stop using your motions as a grist for the mill of Internet mockery, I suggest you stop creating the source material.

Also, I’ve worked hard at trying to have a neat and clean appearance here at Hogewash! While I understand that your use of my blog posts as exhibits in your motions is “fair use,” I ask that you at least use good quality screen captures or printouts of my posts. If you can’t get decent versions with your equipment, let me know what you need, and I will be pleased to provide high-resolution electronic copies of any of my material.

Laughingly yours,
W. J. J. Hoge</mockery>

Gentle Readers, I’ll be fisking more of this filing a bit later. Also, I’ll be commenting on TDPK’s reply to the sanctions motion after I’ve redacted the improperly included materials that should have remained under seal.

You’ll need a large bag of popcorn for what’s coming. Stay tuned.

Tick, tock, tick, tock, …

As it says in the banner at the top of this blog, “Never pick a fight with a man who buys pixels by the terabyte.” The pointage, laughery, and mockification continues.
