Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin has inflicted dozens of websites on the Interwebz over the past decade or so. Most of them are no defunct. Although the Breitbart Unmasked site hasn’t had any new material posted since December, 2018, it’s still one of Kimberlin’s most substantial wastes of bandwidth. The TKPOTD for six years ago today dealt with the deficient skills of one of that site’s editors.

Given the poor reading comprehension skills of the site’s GS-13 Editor, it’s not surprising that Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Bill Boy Unread would get the facts wrong and tweet this:bu201702010109zpopcorn4bkI don’t intend to quit discussing Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Bill Boy Unread. I will keep discussing them, but in the context of making fun of them. Nothing the Cabin Boy™ edits can be taken seriously anymore.

It’s taken several years, but Bill Schmalfeldt has finally working at a publication with a great readership than BU ever had—The Center Republican.

Brett Kimberlin’s Breitbart Unmasked website initially went live on server in The Netherlands, but it moved to onshore hosting after a year or so. However. it moved back offshore after Bill Schmalfeldt published post containing material lifted from Hogewasht! without permission. When I filed a DMCA takedown notice, the site moved from its U.S.-based hosting rather than provided contact information for service of court papers. Six years ago today, I posted about GS13 Editor Bill Schmalfeldt and how He Bravely Turned His Tail and Fled.

When DMCA raised its ugly head,
He bravely turned his tail and fled.
Bravest of the brave, Sir William!

Rather than obey U. S. copyright law, Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread has fled to an off shore server. So Marcus Crassus can talk tough hiding on a server in Iceland, but seems to be afraid to speak his mind here in America.

UPDATE—Lest the Plagiarism Polizei become excessively agitated, let me state that the short ditty above is a parody of the song about Brave Sir Robin from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Furthermore, the parody is not my creation. I saw it, or something very much like it, in a cartoon published by a cockroach.

I did some digging, and I found a copy of the cartoon I mentioned above.

Heh.

Although it has lain fallow for over four years now, on of Team Kimberlin’s principal PR organs was the Breitbart Unmasked website. The site’s occasional editor Bill Schmalfeldt call it his “prime source for news, hearsay, lies and innuendo. Oh, yeah. Smears, too!” Eight years ago today BU published a long defamatory screed attacking Aaron Walker, and it was full of hearsay, lies, innuendo, and smears. And sealed court discovery, too! That’s only the opening paragraph. The Gentle Reader can find the whole post still active on the BU website.

Here’s Bill Schmalfeldt’s concern troll comment to the post.It wasn’t Aaron Walker’s blog about free speech and pictures of Muhammed that drew Brett Kimberlin’s interest and ire. It was Aaron’s pro bono legal assistance to a left-wing blogger who Kimberlin had sued for defamation.

It’s was Kimberlin’s attacks on Aaron’s First Amendment rights that backfired and drew the attention of the blogosphere to past and current activities.

It’s been four years since there has been any new material posted at Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread.One former editor, Bunny Boy (aka Matt Osborne), tried to reinvent himself Gender Heretic on the Twitterz, floated farther from Reality, and wound up being permanently suspended. The other former editor seems to be alternating between forced retirement (getting fired) and ever gigs in ever marginal markets.

Meanwhile, Hogewash! keeps chugging along having not suffered any of the direst of dire direness predicted by BU, and Ali Alexander, the subject of the the last hit piece on BU, seems to be have had a more significant impact public’s understand of election fraud issues than any of Team Kimberlin’s efforts.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

One of the ways Brett Kimberlin has tried to stir interest in his not-for-profits is by making bogus offers of rewards.For example, Velvet Revolution US (which later morphed into Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc) offered $100,000 for information related to election fraud when it had a negative net worth and no cash on hand, and Kimberlin used the Breitbart Unmasked website to promote the fake offer. This was posted six years ago today at BU.

That post is still up.

BTW, Kimberlin didn’t offer such a reward in 2020.

I have no Idea how much revenue Brett Kimberlin generated from the DONATE buttons on his websites. However, based on his multiple LOLsuit claims that I’ve used Hogewash! to trick the Gentle Readers in to giving me vast sums of money, I do know that it really gets under Kimberlin’s skin if you hit my Tip Jar. I’m also sure he feels the same way when folks click on my podcasting partner Stacy McCain’s Big Yellow Button.

During their campaign of lawfare, Team Kimberlin routinely made threats that their enemies would suffer the direst of dire direness. My response posted nine years ago to day was typical: Go Ahead, Make My Day.

Brietbart Unmasked, who was put on notice to stop contacting me on 15 February, and who continues to do so in violation of Md. Criminal Laws §3-803 and §3-805, sent me the following tweet this evening:BU201309232320Z

Fine. Charge me. I will have a Sixth Amendment right to confront my accuser. That means that if @BreitbartUnmask won’t reveal his identity, the charges get dropped, and if he does reveal his identity, he can rest assured that I will file harassment charges for his continued contact with me.

Perhaps he shouldn’t be getting his legal advice from Acme.

One of the problems that The Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin has had with his Breitbart Unmasked website is finding a competent editor to keep it running. Bill Schmalfeldt and Matt Osborne have both failed at the job—Schmalfeldt more than once. Indeed, the Cabin Boy’s™ last turn left the site in such bad shape that no one has bothered to post anything new for almost four years. In fact, some of the posts have been memory holed. That’s not the first time BU has been subjected to an editorial cleaning. The TKPOTD for six years ago today dealt with the clean up that occurred after Schmalfeldt’s first tune as editor.

* * * * *

The Cabin Boy™ was editor of Breitbart Unmasked for while before 57F Osborne took over and turned it into Bunny Boy Unread. The site is backed up all the way to a 21 February, 2012 post by The Watchful Avenge called THE OCCUPY UNMASKED LIE. That post is still available on the Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Boy Unread website, but a significant number of posts from the Cabin Boy™ era have been memory-holed. For example, these posts from the last month before Schmalfeldt was fired have been spoliated—

13 Jul WHEN DID FRANZ KAFKA START WRITING MY LIFE’S STORY?
13 Jul JOGGING HOGE’S MEMORY
13 Jul EXPLAINING WHY HOGE IS WRONG ABOUT THE LAW
13 Jul HOGE SEEMS TO BE HAVING A CRISIS OF SPIRIT
14 Jul HOGE’S CRISIS PASSES, WAR CONTINUES
14 Jul CHRIST’S ADMONITION TO HYPOCRITES LIKE HOGE, WALKER AND THEIR SUPPORTERS
16 Jul DESTROYING BRETT KIMBERLIN’S FAMILY
27 Jul HOW LOW CAN YOU GO?

6 Aug HONESTLY, POPEHAT. I’M BLUSHING OVER HERE
10 Aug ALI AKBAR ANNOUNCES NEWEST PARTNER OF PUNDIT SYNDICATION, LLC—WJJ HOGE

Of course, these are all backed up both online and offline. So has essentially everything that has been posted to the site.

When one buys pixels by the terabyte, a few gigabytes don’t even amount to pocket change.

For the record, there have been over 24,000 post here at Hogewash!, and all of them are still online—except for one, the donation page for the fund that was created to support Tetyana Kimberlin’s legal expenses when she was seeking protection from her husband. The page was taken down when the fund was suspended at her request.

A couple of the Kimberlin-related websites have start posting new material. So how are jtmp dot org and protectourelections dot org doing? Are they attracting new clicks? Here’s how some of the current sites are doing in the online ratings.The top rated site appear sot be itstime2020 dot org, an anti-Trump campaign site that was abandoned a couple of months before the 2020 election. Perhaps people are landing on it while looking for the Imagine Dragons song.

velvetrevolution dot us is in second place. That site has been untended for several years.

None of the other sites rate above 2,000,000—which means they have no significant traffic.

Hmmmmm

 

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

The past couple of TKPOTDs have dealt with the reboots of a couple of Kmberlin-related websites, jtmp dot org and protectourelections dot org. The past four or five years have seen Brett Kimberlin’s web presence contract significantly. It seems he’s trying to gin up some positive publicity as he goes through the process of filing a petition for a writ of certiorari with the Supreme Court on the denial of his attempt to have some of his Speedway Bombing convictions set aside.

I usually use DuckDuckGo for web searches, but last night I was on a machine that was set up with the Brave browser. DuckDuckGo (and Google) respond to searches for justice through music project and protectorelections with jtmp dot org and protectourelections dot org as the first hits. Brave responded with these—Neither site makes it into the first five hits. Neither site has significant traffic, but still …

Hmmm.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Yesterday, I reported that the jtmp dot org website is back in operation and being kept more or less up to date. The same is true of the protectourelections dot org site.

Of course, the most important page supporting the grift is the DONATE page. It provides a link via Authorize dot Net to an EMPR account.Several years ago, Brett Kimberlin changed the corporate name of Velvet Revolution US to Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc. One of the websites that entity operates is empr dot media, an English-language Ukrainian news/propaganda site. At best, POE donations going to EMPR would indicate that funds for “protecting” American election integrity are being commingled with funds supporting Ukrainian propaganda.

At worst … well, consider this information found at the top of the site’s ABOUT page—The second sentence is not true. Protect Our Elections has never been considered an 501(c)(3) entity by the IRS. At one time, it was registered under 501(c)(4), but that classification was revoked by the IRS.

I can understand why someone might believe something less than honest is a foot in an operation run by a convicted perjurer.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

After several years of neglect, Justice Through Music Project is begun actively using the jtmp dot org website again.

If you look closely, you can see that one of the Top Tags is free speech. However, there don’t seem to be any posts about Brett Kimberlin’s use of lawfare to try to suppress the free speech and free press rights of those of us who have written about him.

The most important feature of the site is back up. The DONATE page is alive again, but the Authorize dot Net button takes you to an account for EMPR, and the PayPal button takes you to an account for Protect Our Elections. JTMP is a 501(c)(3) entity to which donations are tax deductible. Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc is a separate entity which has had its 504(c)(4) status revoked by the IRS.

UPDATE—Corrected a sourcing error.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin’s web presence has, just like almost everything he’s undertaken, wound up as a failure. He’s had dozens of websites with DONATE button linking to accounts related to Justice Through Music Project. It doesn’t cost much to register a site, get some hosting, and put up simple webpage with a link to PayPal or some other money transfer site. It doesn’t take much traffic to generate enough income to generate a positive cash flow.

The TKPOTD for seven years ago today took a look at a list of most of Kimberlin’s then active web domains.

* * * * *

Here’s a list of the web domains hosted on server 184.171.169.170. They all seem to have a connection to Brett Kimberlin.KimberlinServerIt can be … um … interesting to take a look at these sites. Most have donate buttons that take you to a JTMP or VRUS donation page.

* * * * *

Only three—jtmp dot org, protectourelections dot org, and vevlevitrevolution dot org—are still cluttering the Internet, and none of them have been kept current.

One Brett Kimberlin’s complaints in his LOLsuits against bloggers, including me, is that we’ve used our blogs to earn money. Kimberlin never has explained how Stacy McCain, for example, being the operator of a profitable blog caused him any injury. I’ve come to the conclusion that Kimberlin is simply envious of successful bloggers. Our honest reporting seems to have out performed his various grifts.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin created the Breitbart Unmasked website in 2012, and used it to attack his perceived enemies. Here’s an example of a false post from six years ago today.The Gentle Reader will note that the second paragraph in the BU post mentions some embedded audio that is no longer in the post. There were two problems with that audio. The first was that it had been edited to create a false record. The second was that it’s a violation Maryland Court Rules to publish courtroom audio recordings.

Publication of printed transcripts are OK, and when I made the printed record available, the embedded audio was taken down.

Breitbart Unmasked. It’s my prime source for news, hearsay, lies and innuendo. Oh, yeah. Smears, too!

—Bill Schmalfeldt

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

In February, 2012, Brett Kimberlin started the breitbartunmasked dot com website. It operated on-and-off until December, 2018, principally under the editorships of Matt Osborne and Bill Schmalfeldt. The site was first hosted in The Netherlands, but it was moved onshore and its hosting consolidated with over two dozen Kimberlin-related sites after a year or so. It moved back offshore after Bill Schmalfeldt posted some content from Hogewash! without permission, fleeing to avoid the consequences of a DMCA takedown notice.

The site is still wasting bandwidth on the Internet, but has had no new content for over three years. It’s been poorly maintained, and much of the original material is gone.

But the site has been well backed up all along for use as evidence when necessary. For example, here’s a screenshot from a post from seven years ago today that was a clumsy attempt to smear Aaron Walker. The contents of the post are utter rubbish.While the post was still available at the BU website as of 10:16 ET Tuesday evening, it screenshot is from the post’s html file on one of the existing offline backups.

I doubt that Team Kimberlin is aware of the evidence the left lying about.

Some things do not have a statute of limitations.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Even though Brett Kimberlin changed the corporate name of Velvet Revolution US to Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc., he’s kept the velvetrevolution dot us domain register active and a not-well-maintained website alive.Here’s an example of a post that passes for “latest news.”Now if I were someone who bragged about being involved in the effort to “secure” the 2016 election and had connections to … well, let’s just say given  the way the Russia Collusion Hoax investigation is going, I probably wouldn’t hav a post like that up on my website.

OTOH, that post has been up for over five years, and it still has no comments, so maybe keeping it up isn’t all that risky.

There’s good news, and there’s bad news.

The Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin paid to renew the domain registration for breitbartunmasked dot com before the registrar’s grace period ran out, and the site is now back online.

The Gentle Reader may decide in which category to place this news.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Back in 2017, Brett Kimberlin changed the name of his VelvetRevolution.US not-for-profit to Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc. While the protectourelections dot org website has been quiet for a couple of years, the empr dot media website was active until recently. It hasn’t had any news to report from Ukraine since the 20th.However, the EuroMaidanPR Twitter account has remained active.

Hmmm.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Now that Breitbart Unmasked has shuffled off this mortal coil, perhaps The Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin will put some effort into cleaning up some of his other websites.

Consider empr dot media. While it occasionally gets a new story lifted from some other source, its teaser crawl at the top of the home page really needs to be updated.

Breitbart Unmasked, Rust in Pieces

The domain registration expired on 13 February, 2022. The site was just shy of ten years old. It had been in a persistent vegetative state since December, 2018. It is survived by jtmp dot org, protecteourelections dot org, velevetrevolution dot us, greencasamaryland dot org, itstime2020 dot org, and empr dot media.

The domain registration for breitbartunmasked dot com has been allowed to expire. When I checked the registration at 02:20 UTC on 14 February (9:20pm ET yesterday evening), the ICCAN Lookup returned the following—

Sunday evening, I was unable to access the site on the offshore server that hosts most to the other Kimberlin-related domains. Namecheap, the registrar for the domain, appears to have parked the domain on an Amazon Web Services server in the U.S.
