Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Whilst poking about the Interwebz Friday evening, I had difficulty checking up on several of Brett Kimberlin’s websites, the ones hosted by Fintel Associates.

Indeed, I was unable to ping the server that had been hosting jtmp dot org and protectourelections dot org.

I was also unable to reach any of the Kimberlin sites hosted on another Fintel server—almightymedia dot org, indictbreitbart dot org, occupyforaccoutability dot org, and op-critical dot com—and I was unable to ping that server.

Hmmmmm.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


OPSEC is a military acronym for Operation Security. Team Kimberlin’s OPSEC is very poor as the TKPOTD from three years ago today demonstrates.

* * * * *

The document below was filed by the Kimberlins as part of a cross appeal in the Walker v. Maryland, et al. case in the Maryland Court of Special Appeals. it contains emails which I showed to Brett Kimberlin during the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. trial and which he identified as being his.

Here are blowups of the address blocks.

Note the BCC addressee: Fintel

When I asked The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin, “What is Fintel?”, he was stunned for a few seconds and finally responded that it was an address he sent email that he wanted to save. When I asked, “So you are Fintel?”, he stammered a bit of a non-response.

I think he had suddenly realized that he had screwed up big time. The emails did not wind up being admitted into evidence because the judge did not allow me to pursue the line of questioning I was trying to develop. However, the Gentle Reader may remember that the Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread About page used to say that BU is owned by Almighty Media. Almighty Media also has another website, the rather neglected almightmedia dot com. As part of my search for the address of Almighty Media for service of process in the recent lawsuit, I issued the following subpoena to its/their web hosting provider.

TDPK filed a motion to quash the subpoena. That motion was denied, but wouldn’t have made any difference. The service provider had promptly provided the billing information which was identical to the the current billing information for the server hosting breitbartunmasked dot com and jtmp dot org.

Fintel Associates?

Hmmmmm.

Stay tuned.

Delusions of competence is a phase that comes to mind.

Oh, and as of 11:51 pm ET Sunday evening—

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Why has Brett Kimberlin attracted such a bunch of losers to Team Kimberlin? Why would he hire such an incompetent as Bill Schmalfeldt as editor of Breitbart Unmasked, and do so more than once? My best guess is that Team Kimberlin is a real world example of the principle that first-rate managers hire first-rate employees while second-rate managers hire third-rate employees. Or maybe it’s an extension of that principle to fourth-rate managers and fifth-rate employees. It was as editorial mistake by Schmalfeldt that forced BU to move to an offshore server rather than give up the identity of its owner in order to file a DMCA counternotice.

Of course, the Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt has had a perfect record so far in copyright disputes. He’s consistently batted 0.000. This Prevarication Du Jour from five years ago today points out what happened in the Hoge v. Schmalfeldt copyright was.

* * * * *

grouch356|201507141854ZThe Cabin Boy™ should be used to that kind of outcome. The settlement agreement for the Hoge v. Schmalfeldt copyright lawsuit granted him nothing of what he sought in his counterclaim, but I got the infringing material taken down—the most important item on my list.

* * * * *

Past performance is no guarantee of future results, but in the Cabin Boy’s™ case, it’s the safe way to bet. I suspect he’ll be no more successful in his current copyright struggle than he has been in attracting subscribers to his latest waste of bandwidth on Youtube. As of 8:30 pm ET yesterday, he still had only 9 subscribers.

 

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


I mentioned in yesterday’s TKPOTD that the evidence I’ve seen leads me to believe that Brett Kimberlin is the person behind the Breitbart Unmasked website and that he has posted content to it and the (at)BreitbartUnmask Twitter account. The TKPOTD from seven years ago today also explored The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin’s connection to BU.

* * * * *

Well, Brett Kimberlin seems to have let his Breitbart Unmasked persona out of its cage. (n.b.: It really doesn’t matter whether the writing is done by Kimberlin or a ghostwriter hireling.) Yesterday, he put up the first post since late April at Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it.), an attempt to slime Stacy McCain and his family. Stacy will no doubt respond with his usual series of tweets asking about the little girl in Indiana whose grandmother was murdered.

Also, during a period of about a half-hour yesterday evening, I received 26 rather bizarre tweets from the @BreitbartUnmask account. I get the general message that Brett Kimberlin isn’t pleased with me or my coverage of his activities. Tough. Back on 1 November, 2012, I blogged that by threatening to SWAT me and then not having the guts to follow through, Team Kimberlin convinced me of their cowardice. I wrote:

As Harry Truman once remarked, “I’ve been shot at by experts.” I’ve dealt with my share of tough guys and tough guy wannabes during my life. They’ve been to jail, and I haven’t. I look forward to seeing TDPK and his thugs and enablers brought to justice, and I intend to have some small part in that. I may have just become his worst nightmare.

Brett Kimberlin can expect that his every move is now being scrutinized. He can also expect to read about his activities here on this blog. He can expect to have the dealings of his “charities” gone over with a fine-toothed comb. I may not be 100% effective, but I am pigheaded enough to keep going. Eventually, justice will win.

Stay tuned.

* * * * *

I’m not done with him yet.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Brett Kimberlin’s only real footprint on the Internet is on sites such as Hogewash! which tell the truth about him. None of his attempts at generating a web presence of his own have been successful. The TKPOTD for five years ago today took a look at the comments, or rather the lack of comments, he had been able to generate at the velvetrevolution dot us website. (That not-for-profit is now called Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc.)

* * * * *

Every once in a while, I take a look at the various Kimberlin websites to see what, if any, influence he may be having. I noticed this at the Velvet Revolution US site.VRUScomments20150530No one has made any comments to the featured posts. Indeed, scrolling down the front page, I found that none of the posts had any comments.

It seems that the Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin is having about as much success in the marketplace of ideas as he is in the courts of law.

* * * * *

You’d think that with the current controversy over vote-by-mail there would be some activity over at the protectourelections dot org website, but nothing new has been posted for almost three months.

Hmmm.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


In 2013, I sought a peace order against Brett Kimberlin. My petition was denied by the District Court, as was my appeal in the Circuit Court. I ran this post, Breitbart Unmasked Unmasked, seven years ago today in the afternoon after the appeal hearing. It outlines my case against Kimberlin. At the bottom today’s reposting I’ll explain the pieces of evidence that I didn’t have during the hearing that I believe would have convinced the judge to grant the peace order.

* * * * *

OK, Gentle Reader, here’s the first installment in my side of the story. I know you tuned in looking for information on the Hoge v. Kimberlin peace order case, but in order for things to make sense, I need to begin with something about the editor of the Breitbart Unmasked website—

As those of you who have been following the Saga of The Dread Pirate Kimberlin and Team Kimberlin will remember, Bill Schmalfeldt has spent months harassing Lee Stranahan and his family with disgustingly crude filth, including incessant and impertinent questions regarding the death of a child during childbirth. On Monday, 11 February, Lee came to Maryland from Texas to file a harassment charge against Schmalfeldt. I picked Lee up at BWI airport, took him to dinner, took him to the District Court Commissioner’s Office, put him up for the night at my house, and dropped him back at the airport on Tuesday morning. BWI is just off of one of the routes I take to work.

On 14 February, I received 40 tweets in less than one hour from @BreitbartUnmask ranting about Lee Stanahan, Aaron Walker, and me. Just after midnight on 15 February, I posted a notice on this blog and on Twitter addressed to @OldUncleBastard, @BreitbartUnmask, and @OccupyRebellion demanding that they stop communicating directly with me. Note: The date/time stamps on the tweets in this post are in GMT; I’ll convert important ones to Eastern Time for clarity.cease tweet

Later that day, Schmalfeldt sent a tweet via his @OldUncleBastard identity referencing my demand. He was clearly on notice.

OldUncleBastard @Xcitizen10 @BreitbartUnmask A commentator on @wjjhoge’s blog post http://t.co/uZkIc4lA explains what the right wing mafia cabal wants.
6:37 PM Feb 15th from web

Click on that link yourself and see.

He continued to send tweets to my @wjjhoge account. As a result, I filed a harassment charge against Schmalfeldt on 18 February. I also filed charges against Brett Kimberlin, Neal Rauhauser, and Bill Schmalfeldt related to another matter at the same time. This is not the place to deal with those issues.

Even though he was on notice and had had a criminal harassment charge filed, Schmalfeldt kept sending me tweets and addressed a blog post to me—not a post about me, one addressed to me. He also broadcast a threat against me on his Internet talk show as well as three other individuals. Because of that activity, I filed for a peace order against Schmalfeldt.

This the last tweet, time stamped at 8:17 am ET, Schmalfeldt sent out prior to being served with the peace order:

LiberalGrouch I wonder what @wjjhoge got by way of payment. Something to comb out the poop flakes from his beard? Hah. I kid. I’m a kidder. I kid that way.
1:17 PM Feb 17th from web

Aside from the juvenile attempt at potty humor, this tweet implies that I have been lying about being paid to blog or making money off donations or that I’ve been helping my friends Lee Stranahan and Aaron Walker from any motivation other than friendship. Let me state this very clearly: I have never been paid to write anything on this or any other blog. I have never received any donation or benefit from any of the bloggers or organizations I have promoted on this or any other blog. This blog is a hobby and an expensive one. I have personally borne all of the expense associated with it, including legal costs. I’m able to do this because I have an above average income working in a very senior engineering position. I’m getting old and may retire some day. When I do, I may put out a tip jar. But for now, my income is adequate to support this blog as a hobby.

At this point, Gentle Reader, you may be wondering what this has to do with Brett Kimberlin. Be patient. I need to lay the foundation for the story.

Schmalfeldt seemed quite agitated by the peace order. A few hours after being served, he rebroadcast the same threat he made earlier that week. @BreitbartUnmask tweeted for him to chill and “let legal handle it.”

BreitbartUnmask @LiberalGrouch @OccupyRebellion @Stranahan @AaronWorthing then don’t email him or anyone else. Let legal handle that from now on.

BreitbartUnmask @LiberalGrouch @OccupyRebellion @Stranahan @AaronWorthing Understood Bill. Legal will deal with them 😉
1:53 AM Feb 24th from Tweetbot for iOS

The final hearing for that peace order was held on 28 February. The judge didn’t pick up on the fact that Schmalfeldt had had proper notice, so, relying on Schmalfeldt’s false statement that he had not, the judge let him off. But with a warning. He placed Schmalfeldt on notice to leave me alone, telling him that his activity would be harassment given notice and that he now had it.

Brett Kimberlin showed up at the courthouse to attend the hearing. He was excluded from the courtroom as a potential witness. Since he wasn’t called, he did not see any of the hearing, but he was present in the hall outside when the hearing ended. As some supporters and I were exiting the courtroom, we saw and heard Schmalfeldt’s lawyer loudly lecturing his client and Kimberlin. The gist of his warning was that they had been lucky that day, but if they kept it up, they’d go to jail. Note: I have appealed this case and won’t have any more to say about it until the appeal is heard.

Schmalfeldt kept it up, and, as we’ll see below, Kimberlin joined in.

But first a bit more Schmalfeldt.

One of those supporters exiting the courtroom with me was Aaron Walker. Aaron had come up to view the hearing so that he could blog about it. (OK, I need to do another aside: At that point in these peace order cases I was proceeding without a lawyer. I am now represented by Zoa Barnes. Aaron Walker does not now and never has represented me in any legal matter in Maryland.) Because it’s a two hour drive from Manassas, Virginia, to Westminster, Maryland, Aaron and his wife stayed at my house the night before and the night following the hearing. The next day, 1 March, Aaron stopped by the Howard County District Courthouse to file an harassment charge and a peace order against Schmalfeldt. Shortly after the peace order appeared online in the Maryland Judiciary Case Search database, Brett Kimberlin appeared at the courthouse trying to intervene. When he was unsuccessful at that, he took to stalking Mrs. Walker in the courthouse parking lot. Details here. Mrs. Walker was very shaken by the experience. I went to the courthouse and escorted the Walkers back to my house to rest.

While he was stalking Mrs. Walker, Kimberlin was photographed using a iPhone to take pictures of the Walkers. Some of his photos were subsequently published on the Breitbart Unmasked website. (No, I won’t link to it.)

Normally, the final peace order hearing comes a week after the temporary order is issued. In the Walker v. Schmalfeldt case, that hearing was put off for two additional weeks because of the death of Schmalfeldt’s mother. There were some interesting Kimberlin shenanigans related to the continuance, but they’re outside the scope of this post.

Beginning on 3 March, @BreitbartUnmask sent the following:

BlogBash is a blogger party/awards ceremony that is loosely associated with other events, one of which is the Conservative Political Action Conference. This year’s BlogBash at CPAC was held at a night club a couple of blocks from the convention center. On 7 March, one week before BlogBash, the venue received a call from someone who said he was Brett Kimberlin and who told the club that if they did not “cancel this event, I’m reaching out to the over 1000 organizations I am in contact with to put you guys out of business.” The club’s representative asked, “Are you threatening us, sir?” The caller replied, “No, I’m not threatening you I’m just pissed off. The guy who owns BlogBash has threatened me and my family and I am appalled that you would host his event.” The rant continued with a warning to expect a demonstration led by a fiery imam. Those threats, combined with the threat broadcast by Schmalfeldt, were taken seriously enough by the PG County Police that they beefed up security along the block where the event was held. You can see plenty of police cars in the pictures published about the event at Breitbart Unmasked. More about those pictures in a bit.

On 14 March, the date of BlogBash, @BreitbartUmask retweeted this from @OsborneInk:

OsborneInk .@ali @AaronWalker @wjjhoge Look out, it’s the Ides of March ! Obviously that means someone will explode Blog Bash w/their mind

blogbashdemonstation

At around 9 pm, the threatened “demonstration” happened—a single guy with a camera who began accosting people coming and going from BlogBash. The photographer, who is believed to be Craig R. Gillette of Washington, DC, did not seem to be fully aware of everything that has been going on with Team Kimberlin’s harassment of bloggers. This is somewhat surprising given that Mr. Gillette has been associated with Justice Through Music Project for over seven years.

Gillette was not the only person there in support of the “demonstration.” @BreitbartUnmask was there as shown by this tweet which was sent around 10:28 pm that evening:

BreitbartUnmask @catsrimportant @LiberalGrouch Seriously, the music sucks. Sorry for those who prefer piano bars, but my ears are hurting at off key music.
2:48 AM Mar 15th from web

Gillette was not the only one taking pictures either, and several pictures from across the street were published on the Breitbart Unmasked website. I won’t go into any detail here, but forensic evidence links pictures taken at the Howard County District Courthouse and at BlogBash. I believe that evidence shows that Brett Kimberlin is @BreitbartUnmask.

Meanwhile, back with Schmalfeldt, because of his continued tweeting to me in spite of being put on warning by a judge, I filed for a second peace order, and when he kept at it after that, a petition for contempt.

On 22 March, the Walker v. Schmalfeldt peace order case came up in Howard County. The final order was denied when the judge bought the theory advanced by Schmalfeldt’s lawyer that since Schmalfeldt was a journalist and Aaron Walker was a public figure, Walker had to put up with the harassment. Hold on to that idea that Schmalfeldt is a journalist, at least in the eyes of his lawyer.

On 25 March, my second peace order case with Schmalfeldt came up. This time the defense offered by Schmalfeldt’s lawyer was that neither Schmalfeldt nor I are journalists; we’re just a couple cranky old men having a shouting match on the Internet, and, in any case, the peace order statute doesn’t cover electronic harassment any way. The judge bought the electronic-harassment-isn’t-covered argument and denied the peace order.

Note: On Friday, Schmalfeldt’s a journalist worthy of protection. On Monday, he isn’t.

Moving back to Kimberlin, between 1:32 pm on the afternoon of 21 March and 9:42 pm that night, he sent these tweets:

BreitbartUnmask @Xcitizen10 @Stranahan @wjjhoge @AaronWorthing Hoge has things. Walker=garnishment Stranahan =default judgment he will skip out on.
1:40 AM Mar 22nd from Tweetbot for iOS

BreitbartUnmask @Xcitizen10 @wjjhoge Could it be that Hoge is on mental disability? Either way he will soon be feeling a hot poker up his wallet.
1:42 AM Mar 22nd from Tweetbot for iOS

The next day, I filed for a peace order and a second criminal harassment charge against Kimberlin. The criminal charging document only listed the harassing tweets. However, he was charged under the general harassment statute. At the beginning of the hearing on 29 March, Kimberlin’s lawyer, the same lawyer who defended Schmalfeldt, offered a motion to dismiss citing the previous Monday’s ruling in the Schmalfeldt case. The judge agreed and dismissed the case without a hearing on the merits.

I believe that the judge erred as a matter of law, so I appealed the case to the Circuit Court. The case was set for today.

On 23 April, I received a copy of a motion filed by Brett Kimberlin seeking to have his case consolidated with Bill Schmalfeldt’s. He filed that motion without bothering to tell his own lawyer. Now, it’s OK to write your own motions, but if you are represented by a lawyer, all communication with the court and the opposing party is supposed to go through your counsel. I immediately contacted Kimberlin’s lawyer and asked what was going on, but I received no reply.

I responded to Kimberlin’s motion on 25 April. The net of my response was that I see the two trials as dealing with separate acts by different individuals at different times and that I believe they should be tried separately. However, I had no objection to trying the case on the same day, so long as that date is no sooner that the 14 June date of the Schmalfeldt trial. At the same time, I also submitted a Motion to Reinstate Peace Order Pending Appeal citing the error I believe that the District Court had made and seeking to have the temporary peace order reinstated if the Kimberlin trial is delayed a month or more.

The normal flow of motions in the Circuit Court would bring Kimberlin’s motion, my response, my motion, and any response he filed before a judge on last Monday, 13 May. The judge found technical deficiencies in both of our filings and left the case scheduled for today.

Since filing those papers on my own, I have hired Zoa Barnes to represent me in both of the Kimberlin and Schmalfeldt peace order appeals. A couple of days ago, I received service on a Motion to Strike from Tae Kim, the lawyer who had handled the cases for Schmalfeldt and Kimberlin in the District Court, saying that he had been let go as Kimberlin’s lawyer and asking to be removed from the case. Kimberlin had decided to proceed pro se. Kimberlin filed a Motion to Dismiss based on the same theory that Kim had used to get him off in District Court.

A subpoena duces tecum was served on Bill Schmalfeldt ordering him to attend the hearing as a witness and to produce certain documents related to the case against Kimberlin. Kimberlin was served with a subpoena duces tecum for related documents as well. The hearing was scheduled for the Historic Courthouse in Westminster, Maryland, which is an old (1838) building with lots of stairs and no elevators. At my lawyer request, the case was moved from the main courtroom upstairs to a small courtroom on the main floor in order to accommodate Schmalfeldt’s disability. He didn’t bother to show up.

The hearing was before Judge Stansfield. He announced that he was deferring a ruling on the Motion to Dismiss until after he heard the evidence. I was the only witness. On direct examination, I testified to my qualifications to do forensic analysis, on the tweets that I had received from BreitbartUnmask and their annoying and alarming nature, and on results of the forensic analysis of data contained in the tweets and a certain blog post that tied the BreitbartUnmask identity to Brett Kimberlin.

On cross examination, Kimberlin asked a series of mostly non-germane questions. (For example, he wanted me to identify the person who blogs as Kimberlin Unmasked. For the record, I don’t know who that is.) He asked why I believed he was BreitbartUnmask and I explained a bit of the process.

And the Petitioner rested.

Before Kimberlin could offer any testimony, my lawyer pointed out that he was a convicted perjurer. She reminded the judge of MD Courts & Judicial Proc. §9-104:

A person convicted of perjury may not testify.

The look on Brett Kimberlin’s face when he realized that the judge wasn’t going let him testify and that there were no other witnesses he could question to get evidence into the record … priceless!

Kimberlin ranted for a while about how this was a clear violation of his First Amendment rights, yada, yada, yada, … (Ah, no. The Fifth Amendment is the one about due process.) Then the judge asked if he had any other witnesses. Since there were none, the case proceeded to closing arguments.

My lawyer did an effective summation of the facts and the law. We asked for a show-cause order against Schmalfeldt for his noncompliance with our subpoena. Kimberlin delivered another rant about his First Amendment rights and how he’s not the harasser. He’s the one being dragged into court by people like Aaron Walker and Walker’s surrogates like me.

The judge took the case under advisement. He will deliver a written ruling. I look forward to it.

So that, Gentle Reader, is a bit of my side of this story, but only a bit. It’s as much as I can tell you for now.

Stay tuned.

* * * * *

During July and August of 2013, I was able to conduct interviews with Brett Kimberlin’s wife Tetyana. She stated that she had been one of the five people present with Kimberlin during BlogBash. The other four were Brett Kimberlin, Craig Gillette, and Mrs. Kimberlin’s two daughters. She said that she took several pictures using Brett Kimberlin’s iPhone that were published on Breitbart Unmasked. Forensic data tends to support that those pictures were taken with the same iPhone Kimberlin used to photograph Mrs. Walker during the stalking incident at the Howard County Courthouse a few days before BlogBash. Thus, there is an eyewitness to Kimberlin’s presence at BlogBash and evidence tying his phone to pictures published at Breitbart Unmasked.

Finally, the time stamps on the BU tweets sent during BlogBash show that some of them were made while Craig Gillette had his hands full (literally) taking pictures on the sidewalk outside the BlogBash venue. There’s no way Gillette could have sent the tweets, Mrs. Kimberlin says she was tending her children, so that leaves Brett Kimberlin as the person who could have sent some of the @BreitbartUnmask tweets from BlogBash. It seems Kimberlin lied when he said he never used that account.

The Maryland law preventing testimony from convicted perjurers has been repealed. However, a previous conviction for perjury can be brought to the court’s attention as a part of impeaching a witness’ credibility. So can subsequent false statements. Brett Kimberlin should expect to have a rough time if he’s ever on the witness stand again.

UPDATE—This blog was a hobby until I retired (for the first time) in July, 2013. At the time the post above was written, I hadn’t been paid for any of my blogging. Now, this is a for-profit operation. Please feel free to hit the Tip Jar or buy something at The Hogewash Store.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Given the low traffic rankings of the Kimberlin-related websites, I suspect that my occasional checks on them have been a noticeable percentage of their views. During one of my visits back in 2014, I noticed an interesting lack of coverage of one story, and I wrote about it six years ago today in a post titled Justice for Boko Haram.

* * * * *

As I was scrolling through the past year’s blog posts at the Justice Through Music Project website, it struck me that there was no mention of the abduction of several hundred schoolgirls by the Boko Haram terrorists. Surely, justice requires that the kidnapped girls be released rather than sold into slavery.

OTOH, The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin is fond of accusing several his perceived enemies as being anti-Islamic. Perhaps he is unwilling to denounce Islamic terrorists. Or perhaps …

* * * * *

Later that day, I ran this additional post—I’m Sure It’s Just a Coincidence …

* * * * *

… but a rather odd one. Within hours of a post here at Hogewash! pointing out the lack of any protests against the Boko Haram abductions in Nigeria on the Justice Through Music Project website, that site is down for a redesign.JTMP_backsoonThe Velvet Revolution US site is also being redesigned.

Hmmmmm.

Uh, huh.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Brett Kimberlin began his campaign of lawfare against bloggers in a vain attempt at brass knuckles reputation management. In the process, he lost control of his online reputation. A few years ago, he had over a dozen active websites promoting his various … um … causes, many with active Donate buttons. Yesterday evening, I took a look at his remaining sites. His domain with the most traffic is breitbartunmasked dot com, a site that hasn’t had any new material for almost a year-and-a-halfe and which is clearly deteriorating from lack of maintenance.Here are the world popularity rankings for The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin’s web domains—

brietbartunmasked dot com 2,867,675
protectourelections dot org 8,369,125
greencasamaryland dot org 10,082,735
empr dot media 10,818,661
jtmp dot org 11,183,078

All his web presence is receding as I have foreseen.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


When The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin hasn’t been able to get the courts to order his critics to stop speaking and writing about him, he’s tired to use sealed court documents obtained during discovery to smear his perceived enemies or as evidence in unrelated LOLsuits. Three years ago today, this Footnote Du Jour appeared here at Hogewash!.

* * * * *

The Gentle Reader may wish to take note that the Cabin Boy™ has never denied that a member of Team Kimberlin was the source of the sealed discovery emails he published during his first turn as Editor of Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread.

* * * * *

Of course, BU has improperly published court documents or records on several occasions when Team Kimberlin thought it might be useful.

BTW, even though the domain registration for breitbartunmasked dot com was renewed for another year last week, nothing new has been posted at the site for over fourteen months.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The Gentle Reader may remember that I have occasionally taken notice that something might or might not happen on or about 13 February. I can now state that the possible event will not occur.

The domain registration for breitbartunmasked dot com was due to expire on the 13th, but someone has paid to renew the registration for one more year. Given that nothing new has been posted to the site since 8 December, 2018, and a lack of maintenance has caused various internal and external links to go bad, it seems that someone has decided to throw good money down a rat hole.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The TKPOTD for two years ago today took a look at what was happening with Brett Kimberlin’s Protect Our Elections operation.

* * * * *

It looks as if The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin has actually begun to try house cleaning some of his web domains to raise some donations. Recently, there’s been a bit of activity on his protectourelections dot org site.Protect Our Elections is a sort of subsidiary to Velvet Revolution.US which is allegedly concerned with election integrity. I has lots of stuff about real and imagined activities by Russians and Republicans, but nothing about Democrat shenanigans.

You’d think that a progressive-oriented organization would at least take note of how the DNC and Hillary Clinton steamrolled Bernie Sanders. OTOH, Kimberlin seems to have connections to folks like Cody Shearer and Harriet Crosby who are or have been connected to the Clintons.

Hmmmmm.

* * * * *

A couple of years ago, The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin was still part of peddling the Russia Collusion Hoax. However, he’d already been caught (in 2017) with his hands in an effort to acquire forged financial documents aimed at causing problems for the Trump administration, and it’s recently become more widely known that the old Velvet Revolution US is now renamed Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc.—EMPR being EuroMaidanPR, an English-language Ukrainian propaganda operation.

Given the evidence that the former Ukrainian government probably attempted to interfere with the 2016 election, Kimberlin’s association with the Alexandra Chalupa (a likely Ukrainian/DNC operative), and POE’s ties to EMPR, it may be that Protect Our Elections is no longer a viable entity. The IRS has revoked its 501(c)(4) status. It will be interesting to see what happens next.

It’s been a year since anything new has been posted at Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread.You know, I kinda miss reading some of their outrageous forecasts of doom for me and other bloggers who had the temerity to write about The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se/Publisher Kimberlin. Perhaps the Gentle Reader will remember the pointage, laughery, and mockification that resulted from such silly posts as this—Meanwhile, this blog continues, and the former editor of BU is having a second winter vacation up north.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

Is Justice Through Music Project still a priority for Brett Kimberlin? It’s been several months since I first encountered this warning when checking on the jtmp dot org website——and I got again while checkin on the site yesterday evening. This sort of warning doesn’t necessarily mean that a site has something nefarious planted on it. It can be triggered by the presence of old code that isn’t compatible with modern https everywhere browsers. The jtmp dot org site hasn’t been updated for almost a year, so the root problem may be lack of proper maintenance.

OTOH, it can’t be that The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin has been busy protecting elections because protectourelections dot org has been updated since mid August. He must be up to something else.

Hmmmm.

One of the recurring lies told by Team Kimberlin has been the promises by Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread to stay on top of the stories surrounding the various LOLsuits filed by Brett Kimberlin. The TKPOTD from six years ago today took note of one instance of BU’s lack of follow through.

* * * * *

I can’t seem to find Breitbart Unmasked‘s report of The Dread Pirate Kimberlin’s day in court earlier this week.

I wonder why?

* * * * *

Well, we know why, don’t we? The truth has nothing to do with Team Kimberlin’s false narratives.

One way to try to get some insight into what The Dread Deadbeat Pirate/Pro-Se/Protestor/Performer/Protector/Publisher Kimberlin is up to is to take a look at which of his websites he’s keep up to date.

It’s been 345 days since Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread has been updated.
It’s been 300 days since the Justice Through Music Project website has been updated.
It’s been 103 days since the Protect Our Elections website has been updated.
It’s been 68 days since the Green Casa Maryland website was updated.
It’s been less than 24 hours since the EMPR (Euromaidan PR) website was updated and less than 12 hours since a tweet was posted to (a)EuromaidanPR.

Hmmmm.

Seven years ago today, I ran this post about Dread Pirate #BrettKimberlin and Autocorrect.

* * * * *

I abbreviate the name of TDPK’s 501(c)(4), Velvet Revolution US as VRUS. The autocorrect keeps trying to insert an i.

Maybe I should let it.

* * * * *

Of course, there’s a significant difference between the VRUS website (which is still up wasting bandwidth) and a virus. Most viruses have better continuing support from their originator.

Many folks work in industries or have hobbies that have a jargon, a group of words or phrases with special meaning. Someone letting such jargon slip off his tongue (or from his fingers on to his keyboard) can inadvertently give away information about his background, Hold that thought for a few moments.

The Gentle Reader who has been following this feature at Hogewash! will surely remember that I’ve been keeping track of the lack of activity on Breitbart Unmasked website. It hasn’t had any new material posted since 8 December, 2018. The BU twitter feed had a few tweets posted later in December, 2018, before going quiet—except for two outburst early this year.

The first series of tweets went out on 18 January, and appear to have been triggered by the fake BuzzFeed story about the President ordering Michael Cohen to lie to Congress.

The second series went out over a few days in late March, around the time that the news was leaking that Mueller was going to fail to bring any further indictments. The very last tweet contained a couple of words—tail number—that reveal something about its author.

Aircraft registration numbers are displayed on the sides of the rear of the fuselage (or the sides of the rudder) and are commonly referred to by people who work around or fly aircraft as “tail numbers.” Use of that term is much less common among people without an aviation background.

Brett Kimberlin, who has claimed under oath to have no connection to Breitbart Unmasked, held a pilot’s license back in his dope smuggling days. He’s also been convicted of perjury and has been caught in multiple lies in recent legal proceedings.

It’s been ten months now since the GS-13 editor Bill Schmalfeldt left Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread for his winter vacation in Montana, and Brett still hasn’t been able to find anyone to put the site back together. This is what it looked like just before 10pm ET last night.Perhaps the $355,436 Brett Kimberlin spent on “Print & Publication” in 2017 broke the budget to the point that he still can’t afford to keep BU going.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


I’ve actually spent some time reading the content of westandwithukraine dot org. It’s one of The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin’s websites. It went up in 2014. All of the posts prior to August, 2016, have been memory-holed, but much of the earlier material is backed up on the Internet Wayback Machine (web dot archive dot org).

I haven’t found any original material on the site. It all seems to have been lifted from other sites. While most of the posts are news stories that would be interesting to someone following the Ukraine/Russia conflict or who was generally interested in Ukrainian culture, there are some posts that stood out for their political content. One post from April, 2017, was a puff piece promoting George Soros and claiming that opposition to the billionaire is a Russian black op.

The Soros obsession is gripping the world and shows no sign of going away. Democratic movements are not winning many of their battles against dictators and would-be dictators. These leaders, many of whom have been in power for too long, need people to believe that the enemy is someone else. Above all, Putin needs this myth. It can only be hoped that Putin will be gone before Soros. The world needs George Soros far more.

There are indications of Soros’ involvement with the shenanigans going on in Ukraine. Elizabeth Vaughn reports this over at RedState:

Shortly before Lutsenko took office, then-U.S. Embassy Charge d’ Affaires George Kent sent a letter to the Prosecutor General’s office asking them to end the investigation. Kent made it clear that “U.S. officials had no concerns about how the U.S. aid had been spent.”

If this account is correct, the Obama administration pressured a foreign government to drop an investigation into an organization they had co-founded along with activist George Soros. They were interested in preventing American taxpayers from learning how their tax dollars were being spent as well as concealing their collaboration with Soros. But, above all, they were each doing their part to insure that Hillary Clinton won the presidency.

Hmmmmm.

We know that Brett Kimberlin was working with Alexandra Chalupa during 2016 and 2017 and that both of them were involved in attempts to use foreign sources to dig up dirt on persons connected to the Trump campaign and, later, the Trump administration. I’m sure someone is following the money.

One of the Kimberlin-related websites that has recently disappeared was manafortwatch dot org. The site had an … um … interesting history. Here are the first few lines of the domain’s WHOIS data:

Domain Name: MANAFORTWATCH.ORG
Registry Domain ID: D189396510-LROR
Registrar WHOIS Server: whois.godaddy.com
Registrar URL: http://www.whois.godaddy.com
Updated Date: 2019-08-30T08:10:23Z
Creation Date: 2016-07-19T01:06:01Z
Registry Expiry Date: 2020-07-19T01:06:01Z

… and here is the site’s hosting history:

The domain was registered through GoDaddy on 10 August, 2016 and initially hosted on a GoDaddy server (50.63.202.34), but two days later, it was moved to the Fintel Associates server (209.188.0.218) that hosts the Justice Through Music Project and Protect Our Elections websites. On 10 August, 2019, the site was moved back to a GoDaddy server (184.168.221.90), and on 1 September, it was taken down well before the expiration date for the registration.

Here’s the interesting thing about that timeline. The domain was registered one week before the New York Times broke the story of the Ukrainian ledger detailing payments made to Manafort. It seems that someone with insider knowledge of the Ukrainian National Anti-Corruption Bureau’s claims about the ledger was involved in registering the domain.

We know that Alexandra Chalupa was working through her Ukrainian contacts to dig up dirt on Manafort. We know that she was working with Kimberlin through that time period.

Hmmmmm.

When I first began following the activities of Team Kimberlin, there were over 20 Kimberlin-related websites. That number has been rapidly declining over the past couple of years. One of the few remaining domains that was present back in 2012 is indictbreitbart dot org. It is one of the four survivors hosted on the Fintel Associates sever at 198.15.113.115. the others are velvetrevolution dot us, op-critical dot com, and almightymedia dot org.

The indictbreitbart dot org site hasn’t been updated since 2015. Here’s the most recent post.

The domain’s registration doesn’t expire until 2021. Given The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin’s usual modus operandi, we can probably expect the site to remain up until then, providing a continuing opportunity for pointage, laughery, and mockification at a site dedicated to seeking the indictment of a deceased person.

Over the years, the principal PR website for Team Kimberlin has been Breitbart Unmasked. However, after Bill Schmalfeldt left for his winter vacation in Montana, The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin has been unwilling or unable to find someone to take over the site as the Cabin Boy’s™ replacement. It hasn’t been updated for nine months, but someone has been diddling with it because some material has been taken down. For example, the images that were on the Home page are now gone.Whoever has been trimming the site hasn’t got around to making me an unperson yet. Clicking on the Hoge Watch link in the tag cloud reveals this.As many of the Kimberlin-related domain’s registrations have expired, they have not been renewed. Perhaps that will happen to BU, and whole site will be memory-holed.

Stay tuned.

Brett Kimberlin’s use lawfare to try to suppress the free speech rights of his critics was a vain attempt at brass knuckles reputation management on the Internet. As with almost everything he’s tried in his life, he failed when he tried to do more than he was capable of and when he tried to outsmart people who were experts in fields where he lacked talent and/or experience. The TKPOTD from a year ago today took note of The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin’s collapsing Internet presence.

* * * * *

One of the ways that The Dread Deadbeat Protester Kimberlin has tried to raise money off the Internet was via a website called Pussy Riot Defense Fund. Reading the fine print on the website carefully told one that the donations raised wouldn’t go to the direct support of the Russian female rock band but would be used to help defray the cost of Justice Through Music Project’s publicizing the band’s legal hassles.

The Justice Through Music Project home page still has a link to the pussyriotdefensefund.org website. I’ve left the link live so that the Gentle Reader can click on it for himself to see that the site is gone. Indeed, the registration for the domain expired a year ago today.

It’s beginning to look as if The Dread Deadbeat Protestor Kimberlin has pretty much given up on maintaining an effective presence on the Internet. His websites are not being well maintained, and his web presence is shrinking.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

* * * * *

And things continue to proceed downhill at jtmp dot org. As the Gentle Reader can see in the screenshot on the left, there hasn’t been anything new posted at this website allegedly dedicated to music and politics for over six months. In fact, there’s been very little posted at the site for over two years.

However, the most striking change at the Justice Through Music Project website is that it now lacks any visible buttons, widgets, or links allowing one to make a donation. (I was able to use a URL from a backed up version of the site to find a donate button on a page that’s still on their server and tied to JTMP’s PayPal account, but there are no live links to that page.)

Follow the money? It would appear that the money isn’t streaming into Justice Through Music Project via online donations. If it ever did.

This TKPOTD was published five years ago today as part of the wrap-up coverage of the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. LOLsuit. It fairly well demonstrates that one the real purpose of that LOLsuit was a fishing expedition seeking information related to a principal source of The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s butthurt.

* * * * *

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin kept whining that he had provided my codefendants and me with “thousands of paged of documents” and that we had given a copy of just one email during discovery in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit.

That’s true. He did get only one email, and I’m the one who gave it to him as part of my answer to Plaintiff’s Interrogatory 3.

What I gave him was an email that I had sent to Kimberlin Unmasked that wasn’t covered by codefendant privilege. It was an answer to a question about a recently passed Maryland gun law. TDPK got everything that he asked for that he was entitled to receive. He was very foolish in his choice of questions.

popcorn4bkHe was clearly focused on finding KU’s identity and showed no real interest in developing any sort of case against me. If Brett Kimberlin is lucky, Judge Hazel will throw out the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness on the motions to dismiss. Otherwise, he’ll be facing discovery conducted by each of the two dozen defendants.
