Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

The original reason I started writing about Brett Kimberlin and his minions and enablers was reporting on an unconstitutional gag order that had been issued as part of a peace order he had obtained against Aaron Walker. The gag order was overturned on appeal, and the peace order was denied during a de novo trial in a higher court. Indeed, all of the peace order petitions filed by Kimberlin and his PR flack Bill Schmalfeldt against people reporting on their activities were denied.

OTOH, one peace order sought against Brett Kimberlin was granted, and two peace orders I sought against Bill Schmalfeldt were granted as well.

Schmalfeldt appealed the first peace order and its extension. This post, In Re Schmalfeldt v. Hoge 2, was posted seven years ago today.

* * * * *

Petition Docket No. 29 for the September, 2014, term of the Maryland Court of Appeals is Schmalfeldt v. Hoge, the Cabin Boy’s™ appeal of the extension of the peace order in place against him. His appeal paperwork (such as it is) is shown below. A respondent is allowed 15 days in which to answer a petition for a writ of certiorari. That time begins running either when the petition is completely filed (with any supplement) or, if no supplement is filed, when the time allowed for its filing runs out. The Cabin Boy’s™ time ran out yesterday without his filing a supplement, so I have until 13 May to file my answer.

I went by the Clerk’s Office at the Court of Appeals to see what he had actually filed. Since he has not raised any new issues of law and since the Court denied his petition for certiorari the last time around, I see no reason to file anything further. I doubt the Court will change its mind about the validity of Schmalfeldt’s legal arguments. There’s always the chance that they might, but the odds are small. Even if they grant his petition, all that means is that he has permission to appeal, not that he has won.

Let me make a couple more points.

First, the Gentle Reader should note that the Cabin Boy™ is only appealing the extension of the peace order. Even if he were to win his appeal, the original order would still stand, so he will be an adjudicated harasser regardless.

Second, a peace order is a civil proceeding. Maryland’s expungement statute applies only to criminal proceedings. Thus, peace orders cannot be expunged.

UPDATE—Fixed a typo. 13 April should read 13 May.

It turned out  there wasn’t any reason to file a response. The Court of Appeals denied the petition for certiorari.

While I was the first, I wasn’t the last person to have some sort of protective order issued against Schmalfeldt. He wound up with at least a dozen such orders issued in at least five states. One was issued to protect a toddler.

The Prevarication Du Jour from six years ago today contains one of the silliest tweets ever emitted by a member of Team Kimberlin.

@justplainbill201502172358ZNo sentient being who has read much of the writings of Ken White at Popehat would confuse him with a Right Wing Nut Job.

While there is much to recommend Stacy McCain’s categorization of Bill Schmalfeldt as a deranged cyberstalker, I still favor Ken White’s label for him: demented freak.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Some of the dumb stunts pulled by Team Kimberlin over the past seven years have been so stupid that they merited being laughed at in an I’m Not Making This Up, You Know post such as this one from a couple of years ago today.

I found this in my inbox on Christmas Day—bs_linkedin_reqYes, it appeared that the Cabin Boy™ wanted to connect to my LinkedIn network. After verifying that this really did come from Schmalfeldt, I did not accept.

And now the Cabin Boy™ is apparently suffering butthurt.fmp201612270436zThe Gentle Reader may wonder to what the Cabin Boy™ refers when he writes of moving to Maryland. When I viewed his profile, it listed him as a candidate for a writer/editor job with the National Institute on Aging which is a part of the NIH based in Maryland. The Gentle Reader may remember that the Cabin Boy™ claims the NIH as one of his multitude of former employers.

So the Cabin Boy™ would have folks believe that when he sent me a request to connect to my LinkedIn network and I verified and denied his request, I was stalking him.

Although I generally prefer Popehat’s description of Bill Schmalfeldt as a “demented freak,” Stacy McCain’s formulation of “deranged cyberstalker” seems to fit this episode.

I’m Moving Up in the Blogosphere

While I was preparing this week’s Thanks of the Links post, I found incoming links from a new blog: may1983 dot blogspot dot com. (No, I won’t link to it.) After reading a post titled chesapeake chomos, I believe that I’ve now joined that select group of bloggers who are being harassed by deranged cyberstalker Deb Frisch.

I used to complain about Stacy McCain attracting a better grade of whackos. I must be moving up!

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Team Kimberlin tells lies. Here’s a lie told they told about me. Of course, the lie had no traction, and shortly after the email described in this post from four years ago today fizzled, Bill Schmalfeldt filed the first of his LOLsuits and named me as one of the defendants.

* * * * *

Mrs. Hoge received the following email. Note that it has a bogus return address. The headers show that it was sent via a remailer service.

From: televisionwatch@gmail.comd
Reply-To:
Subject: Local “minister” WJJ Hoge is no one to admire. Vile harassment lobbied against disabled man.

A copy of what has been sent to Sheriff’s office, the local news and, of course, the forestry board. Thank your husband for any attention you get.

WJJ Hoge of Westminster, a man who claims to be a minister, is waging a petty war against a Parkinsons sufferer. Why? Because they dislike one another. Mr. Hoge has admitted ownership of the content attached in the link below. It is filthy and meant only to emotionally harm his “enemy” and nothing more.

One other time Mr. Hoge was angered, he created this online movement meant to harrass local officials:

Everyone Blog About Howard County SA Office

This man claims to be doing the lord’s work, believes he is standing up for Jesus. In truth, he is a bully, a hypocrite and someone who can only create walls and vitriol. Online harassment is something we take seriously when it involves children, but we ignore it when it comes to disabled adults. Is this what Maryland has become?

His wife, Connie, is a member of the Forestry Board and, therefore, a public figure.

Mrs. Hoge forwarded this message to me, and it popped up on my iPhone while I was at a Candidates’ Forum being held in the studios of our local public access cable station. There were two panels that night. The first was the candidates for Sheriff. The second was the candidates for State’s Attorney.

Sometimes it’s good to be able to share things with your neighbors.

UPDATE—The Cabin Boy™ says he didn’t send the email.@PatO201405030151Z

The email refers to “what has been sent to Sheriff’s office,” but the complaint Schmalfeldt filed is timestamped 18:00 on 30 April, and the headers for the email show a timestamp of  “30 Apr 2014 17:48:48.” (See the comment section below.). Now, who other than the Cabin Boy™ would have been aware of the contents of the complaint to the Sheriff 11 minutes before it was filed?

Hmmmmm.

* * * * *

The email was handled as an attempt to harass Mrs. Hoge. I wonder if the Cabin Boy™ ever figured out why the State’s Attorney’s Office was willing to enforce the second peace order?

Reiterating Editorial Policy

This blog is about whatever topics I find interesting, and one of those topics is the First Amendment. Among its provisions, that Amendment prohibits the government from infringing on the freedom of speech and the freedom of the press. It does not, however, restrict the editorial policy of this site. The general rules governing the site can be found by clicking on The Fine Print in the menu bar, but I want to reiterate one specific rule not found there: Derogatory comments about the family members of a controversial person who are not themselves a part of the controversy will not be tolerated on Hogewash!—that being said, I have no control over the speech or writings of third parties that is not posted to this site.  TheMerryWidower201511160615ZI can advise against certain behaviors and point out that I don’t engage in them myself, but I can’t order anyone to say or not say or to write or not write anything elsewhere.

Bill Schmalfeldt is a deranged cyberstalker. He is a liar. He is someone who is untrustworthy, who fails to live up to his commitments or abide by agreements he has signed. He had the opportunity to make a clean start when he fled from Maryland to Wisconsin. He appears to have wasted that opportunity.

Murum aries attigit.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

This is the latest example of the Cabin Boy’s™ cyberthuggery—LTUnmaskedMrs. Thomas has been a target of Team Kimberlin’s harassment for several years now. Enough is enough. AFAIK, she has been a non-participant in any of the ongoing pushback against the Cabin Boy™ or any of his buddies in Team Kimberlin. Certainly, Schmalfeldt has no evidence to the contrary. It is past time for the harassment to stop.

Get off Lynn Thomas’s lawn.

Now.
