Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


It was five years ago that Bill Schmalfeldt was on Twitter thumping his chest about how he was going to get Patrick Grady on the witness stand and … well, something doubleplus ungood was going to happen to Patrick. Schmalfeldt’s bravado was related to a peace order petition that he had filed in Maryland. Given Schmalfeldt’s actual actions on the day of the hearing, it’s likely that didn’t expect Patrick to show up. He was wrong. Patrick appeared at the hearing, but the Cabin Boy™ didn’t, as I reported five years ago today in a post titled In Re Schmalfeldt v. Grady.

* * * * *

The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt was a no-show. The peace order petition was dismissed.

More later.

UPDATE—

Cowardly no-show
Bogus petition dismissed
FroYo and mayo

* * * * *

That was the first of the civil cases The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt file against Patrick Grady. The Cabin Boy™ went on to file four LOLsuits naming Patrick as a defendant and four more naming “Paul Krendler,” claiming that Grady was Krendler. He lost every single case.

Losing losers gotta lose.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


When I first wrote that Team Kimberlin was buying their legal advice from the same Acme that supplied those fine products to a certain coyote, I was joking. As the various legal entanglements have played out, it come to look as if that really is the source of the legal theories behind their LOLsuits. Here’s the TKPOTD from three years ago today,

* * * * *

WMSBroad201311101815ZThat deserves an updated answer. Here’s a partial listing—

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


I began writing about Brett Kimberlin’s attempts to use lawfare to suppress the First Amendment rights of his critics to report truthfully on him and his activities in May, 2012. Since then, I’ve been the subject of numerous legal attacks by him and his enablers and supporters, but I’ve not been alone. I’ve had over 40 codefendants in civil suits from Kimberlin and more than a dozen codefendants in suits filed by his PR flack Bill Schmalfeldt.

One common feature of all the pro se lawsuits filed by Team Kimberlin, whether I was a defendant or not, was the incompetent manner in which the plaintiffs conducted them. After the dismissal of Schmalfeldt’s LOLsuit VI: The Undiscovered Krendler, he filed a bar complaint against Aaron Walker, the lawyer who successfully represented the defendants. While mind-bogglingly stupid, that move was not unexpected, as I reported three years ago in an I’m Not Making This Up, You Know post.

* * * * *

The Cabin Boy™ has filed a pair of frivolous bar complaints against Aaron Walker.

I suppose this is what he thought would be Hell raining down.

BTW, I read over the settlement the Cabin Boy™ was offered. I doubt that he will ever see such a generous one ever again.

UPDATE—MU201607051859Zgas_stove_burner_s1As a matter of fact, the bar complaints were foreseen. It’s a common tactic employed by Team Kimberlin.

That the Dog returns to his Vomit and the Sow returns to her Mire,
And the burnt Fool’s bandaged finger goes wabbling back to the Fire …

* * * * *

Whether against Justice Clarence Thomas or Aaron Walker or whomever, none of Team Kimberlin’s bar complaints have been found to have any merit.

Or to put it another way—everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Bill Schmalfeldt hasn’t had much luck dealing with the 1st of July for the past few years. Here are three posts from 1 July, #BillSchmalfeldt.Gone.Again. from 2013, Qapla’ from 2016, and the TKPOTD from 2017.

* * * * *

GhostRadioOnlin was down at 10:15 pm ET on 1 July, 2013.Ghost_gone

And this was what his rabid response website looked like at the same time.Allergic2Bull_com

Hmmmmm.

Ghost_goodbyeUPDATE—An email from a friend on the Left Coast contained this gem.

It looks as if he’s closed the rabid response site as well. It will be interesting to find out if this is the result of Bill Schmalfeldt being served the summons and a copy of the Application for Statement of Charges and seeing how much trouble his ranting has caused him. Taking the Twitter account and site down won’t erase the screenshots, pdf files, etc. that are on multiple computers all over the country. Evidence of the Cabin Boy’s behavior remains intact.

Or it really could be that the Cabin Boy is worn out from trying to fight above his weight (intellectually and morally). Regardless, he joins Brave Sir Robin in the pantheon of big talkers who cut and run. Of course, he may pop up again. We’ll see.

UPDATE 2—I’ve been asked how I missed the Sore Loserman’s “last tweets.” I was off doing other things. I do have a life, you know.

UPDATE 3 —HoggyJr_0701

No, my life doesn’t revolve around Brett Kimberlin. I have an interest in seeing him brought to justice, but there are plenty of things in my life that are of greater importance.

As for heart attacks, I’ve had three already, thank you. I’ve got five stents in my heart and had a minimally invasive bypass. My bypass was experimental. I was the 13th patient to undergo the procedure in the U. S. (luckily for me). I could have had the proven standard procedure or opt to participate in the experimental trial. I went with the experimental procedure even though it wasn’t covered by my insurance. Did someone say something about altruism and medical procedures?

* * * * *

Bill Schmalfeldt loses again.

More later.

UPDATE—The order above dismisses the case on the basis of lack of personal jurisdiction. The case also failed in part for failure to state a claim with respect to misappropriation of likeness.

The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt keeps his perfect batting average of .000 intact.

* * * * *

The stalking and harassment count in LOLsuit VIII: Avoiding Contact was summarily dismissed.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

* * * * *

I’ve lost count of the Cabin Boy’s™ failed Internet personas and other media fiascos. They’re even more common than his failures at pro se litigation.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


I’ve spent a sizable portion of the past seven years dealing with absurd demands for various members of Team Kimberlin. Some of the sillies have come from The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt. The TKPOTD for four years ago today opened with ridicule of one of the Cabin Boy’s™ demands and also posted one of the motions to dismiss I filed in LOLsuit IV: The Voyage to Oblivion.

* * * * *

Now that so many other people are archiving his blogging, I no longer regularly read the Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt meanderings on his blog du jour. I’m told that he wants to charge me a license fee for using his name and and image in my reporting about him and his buddies with Team Kimberlin.

Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

Before making such a foolish assertion, he should have talked to a lawyer who could have explained case law such as Lawrence v. A. S. Abell Co., 299 Md. 697 (1984) to him.

And in other news concerning the Cabin Boy™ …

Yesterday, I mailed a reply to his opposition to my motion to dismiss his current LOLsuit for improper venue to the court. I also served the Cabin Boy™ by mail.

The reply speaks for itself, and I do not intend to make any further substantive public statements about the motion until the court has ruled on it.

* * * * *

Because the judge found that Schmalfeldt had sued me in the wrong court, she was able to dismiss the case without having to bother considering whether the Cabin Boy™ had stated a claim upon which relief could be granted.

None of the LOLsuits he’s filed against me have ever made it past a motion to dismiss for venue or lack of personal jurisdiction.

Losing losers gotta loose.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Yesterday’s TKPOTD looked back five years at The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt’s appeal of the extension of the first peace order issued against him. Today, we look back the following day’s TKPOTD.

* * * * *

It seems that the Cabin Boy™ is still getting his legal advice from Acme.@PatO201404292348ZWhere to begin? I guess I’ll just take it from the top.

1. Schmalfeldt did not file an “appeal brief;” all he filed was a Civil Appeal Information Report for the Court of Special Appeals. According to Md. Rule 3-803, one key item is missing from his petition. Since he’s pro se, the Court of Appeals may overlook the omission, but even if they do, he has raised no new legal arguments. Since he has given them no new reason to hear his appeal, I expect that they will deny his petition on the same grounds as they did last time.

2. Res judicata applies to the original peace order. That case is closed and not subject to relitigation. That matter is settled.

3. Schmalfeldt v. Hoge is on the Court’s Petition Docket. This only means is that the Clerk has received it and assigned it a tracking number. It does not mean that the judges have accepted the case for an appeal. If they do, it will be moved to the Regular Docket, and the case will proceed as the Court directs. In the unlikely event that the appeal is allowed, the next step is usually a round of briefing from the petitioner and respondent. We’ll see if it gets that far.

Stay tuned.

UPDATE—I’m told that the Cabin Boy™ is blabbering on teh Twitterz about how wrong I am.

Uh, huh

Like they say in the financial prospectuses, “past performance is not an indicator of future returns,” but it’s a safe way to bet. So consider how accurate Schmalfeldt’s predictions from 2013 of my crushing defeat in the appeal to the Circuit Court, my being clapped in irons (I found that one particularly amusing), or his quick victory in the Court of Appeals. You can believe Acme, or you can believe what real lawyers tell me. Either way, your belief will have no effect on what the Court does.

So chill.

And stay tuned.

* * * * *

Speaking of res judicata, The Hogewash Store has lots of mugs, t-shirts, and other tchotchkes available with the Res Judicata logo. There’s also junk branded Murum Aries Attigit, and Johnny Atsign. If you stop by, spend some money, and support this blog, I’ll be thankful.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Team Kimberlin is a bunch of liars and incompetent ones at that. They spin false narratives and then offer shoddy forged evidence which actually contradicts their claims. Two posts from four years ago described one such failure. The first was a TKPOTD. The second was an episode of Blogsmoke.

* * * * *

The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt has finally figured out that he had a copy of my opposition to his motion to dismiss my contempt petition and that a copy of the envelope he mailed to me was included as part of an exhibit to my opposition. He now claims to have “proven” that he didn’t send the letter because it has a Baltimore postmark rather than one from Elkridge.

It is true that the envelope he mailed last January is postmarked Baltimore. See for yourself.Envelope1That’s the same postmark as found on the envelope of the letter he mailed to Judge Grimm when he sought to intervene in RICO Madness case in February, 2014. Note that the PACER caption appears on the left edge; this was downloaded from the U. S. District Court’s docket.Envelope2Schmalfeldt sent a second letter to Judge Grimm one week after the first. This zooms in on the postmark of the envelope for that letter (again, downloaded from the court’s docket).Envelope3

Given that the Cabin Boy™ has admitted that he sent the letters to Judge Grimm, this demonstrates that at least some of his mail is sent via Baltimore. Thus, having the Baltimore postmark on the letter he sent me in January doesn’t prove or disprove anything.

The Cabin Boy’s™ PACER fu is even worse than his google fu.

Tick, tock.

UPDATE—Commenter MJ wonders about the signatures on the various letters.SignaturesUPDATE 2—A Reader #1 wonders when the Cabin Boy™ made his claim of “proof.” Tune in to this evening’s episode of Blogsmoke to learn more.

MUSIC: UP AND UNDER—RECORDED—CUT 1

ANNOUNCER: (VOICE OVER MUSIC) Around Twitter Town and in the territory of the net—there’s just one way to handle the harassers and the stalkers—and that’s with an Internet Sheriff and the smell of “BLOGSMOKE”!

MUSIC: THEME HITS: FULL BROAD SWEEP AND UNDER—RECORDED—CUT 2

ANNOUNCER: “BLOGSMOKE” starring W. J. J. Hoge. The story of the trolling that moved into the young Internet—and the story of a man who moved against it. (MUSIC: OUT)

JOHN: I’m that man, John Hoge, Internet Sheriff—the first man they look for and the last they want to meet. It’s a chancy job—and it makes a man watchful … and a little lonely.

MUSIC: MAIN TITLE—RECORDED—CUT 3

JOHN: The Grouch has been charged by the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office with failure to comply with a peace order, and he’s been flailing around trying to come up with some sort of defense. That strikes me as rather foolish. After all, he’s sent an email to the State’s Attorney’s Office confessing. Still, logic has never been The Grouch’s long suit.

SOUND: Phone rings twice. Receiver picked up.

JOHN: John Hoge.

KAPLAN: Mr. Hoge, this is Detective Bob Kaplan with the Montgomery County Police. I’m sorry to call you this late in the evening, but you may be able to help us with something.

JOHN: No problem. What’s up?

KAPLAN: (Telephone filter) Are you familiar with someone known as The Grouch?

JOHN: Yes. Quite familiar.

KAPLAN: (Telephone filter) We’ve received a rather bizarre email from him about some sort of conspiracy to mail a forged letter.

JOHN: That would be the one he sent back in January, right?

KAPLAN: (Telephone filter) Uh, huh. Why do you say he sent it? He claims that the postmark proves that he didn’t.

JOHN: Really?

KAPLAN: (Telephone filter) Yes. He says that it’s postmarked Baltimore, and mail he sends from his residence in Elkridge shouldn’t have a Baltimore postmark.

JOHN: Can you forward that email to me? I’d like to see what he’s talking about. And can you give me a good call back number?

KAPLAN: (Telephone filter) (Fading out) Sure. What’s your email address …

JOHN: (Telephone filter) John Hoge here. I just sent you an email. Can you pull it up?

KAPLAN: Hold on.

SOUND: Typing on keyboard. Mouse clicks.

KAPLAN: OK. I got it.

JOHN: (Telephone filter) Open the attached pdf.

KAPLAN: Uh, huh.

JOHN: (Telephone filter) There are three envelopes shown in the file. The first one is the envelope for the letter from January. The original is in the hands of the Circuit Court up here in Westminster, so there’s a no chain of custody issues.

KAPLAN: OK.

JOHN: (Telephone filter) The other two are from letters he mailed to the U. S. District Court. You’ll notice they show the PACER caption from the court docket, so they’re self-authenticating.

KAPLAN: Uh, huh.

JOHN: (Telephone filter) Compare the postmarks.

KAPLAN: Yeah, I see. They’re all Baltimore 212. So you’re saying that the record shows that The Grouch has sent mail with that postmark in the past.

JOHN: (Telephone filter) Which doesn’t prove or disprove who sent the January letter, but it does kill his claim that he couldn’t have sent it.

KAPLAN: So what about his forgery claim?

JOHN: (Telephone filter) Well, The Grouch began claiming that the letter was forged as soon as its existence was made public. He very quickly focused on the alleged similarity between the signature on the letter and his signature on a failed peace order petition he filed against one of the two people he’s claiming did the forgery.

KAPLAN: Which means what?

JOHN: (Telephone filter) Suppose The Grouch forged the letter himself.

KAPLAN: What?

JOHN: (Telephone filter) Suppose he wrote the letter, traced a copy of his signature on that peace order so that it would be “too similar,” and then mailed it from the same post office he had used for the letters to the federal court. He might think that would give him a means of claiming that he had been set up.

KAPLAN: That’s kind of farfetched, isn’t it?

JOHN: (Telephone filter) Does anything about this seem rational?

KAPLAN: Still …

JOHN: (Telephone filter) You’re dealing with a guy with multiple restraining order against him in at least three states, someone with a history of altering documents.

KAPLAN: It’s more than a little bit crazy.

JOHN: (Telephone filter) Read that first letter to federal judge that I forwarded to you. He admits to suffering from dementia. Look, the point is that his “forging” the letter makes as much or more sense that his explanation.

KAPLAN: OK, I’ll put all this in the case file.

JOHN: (Telephone filter) Good. Call me if you need anything else.

MUSIC: CLOSING TITLE UP AND UNDER—RECORDED—CUT 6

ANNOUNCER: (VOICE OVER MUSIC) Even with a good imagination, we can’t come up with stories as strange as The Bomber and his buddies provide for episodes of “BLOGSMOKE”!

MUSIC: SWELL AND CONTINUE TO MUSIC OUT

ANNOUNCER: The Legal Department wishes the following declaimer read: “‘BLOGSMOKE’ is a work of fiction. Anyone who feels it might be about him should read Proverbs 28:1.” This is LBS, the Lickspittle Broadcasting System.

* * * * *

The Backstory: Bill Schmalfeldt sent me a letter while a peace order forbidding any contact with me was in force. He tried to claim that it was a forgery that had been created by the person he believed was “Paul Krendler,” and that it had been forwarded for mailing in Maryland by an accomplice who lived in Montgomery County.

Lying liars gotta lie, failing failures gotta fail, and everything proceeded as I had foreseen.
