Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


I’ve made a point of posting as much as possible of The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s legal filings. His first lawfare attack on me occurred in July, 2013, when he filed a false Application for Statement of Charges against me alleging that I has stalked and harassed him. Because the State’s Attorney’s Office dropped the charges and sought to have them expunged, I wasn’t able to see exactly what Kimberlin had claimed until I was able to get the case unsealed. (I needed it unsealed so that I could sue for malicious prosecution.)  I finally got around to publishing his bogus allegations four years ago today.

* * * * *

While I’ve been preparing discovery requests for the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit, I noticed that I’ve never published the Application for Statement of Charges that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin filed against me in 2013. Last November, I petitioned the District Court to be allowed to inspect and have a copy of the case file. Now that the expungement has been vacated and anyone can get a copy, I might as well post it. Here’s the case docket as I received it last November.

TDPK has said that he asked for the expungement. As the Gentle Reader can see, it was the State’s Attorney’s Office who asked for the expungement, not Kimberlin.

Falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus.

* * * * *

The Application for Statement of Charges was signed under penalty of perjury. The Gentle Reader should not be shocked that a convicted perjurer would perjure himself again.

False narratives. That’s what Brett Kimberlin called truthful reporting about him and his activities. As the TKPOTD for five years ago today noted, he used that term quite a bit in the false claims he made in his various LOLsuits.

* * * * *

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin sure does like the phrase “false narrative(s).” For example, …false narrativesNot once does he follow up on any claim that a “narrative” is “false” with specific facts proving his allegation.

* * * * *

The one time The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin managed to get a case to trial, he lost because he had no specific facts to place in evidence in support of his allegations.

The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin’s Internet presence seems to be slowly collapsing. At one point, he had almost two dozens active websites hosted on various servers. Now, only a few remain. Only two sites are left on the Dutch server, breitbartunmasked dot com and empr dot media. His BU PR site has been idle for over four months, and the Ukraine “news” site has only been sporadically updated. It hasn’t had a new post for over three weeks.

The onshore server that hosts his flagship sites, jmtp dot org and protectourelections dot org, only has seven sorta/kinda active sites, and none of them are well maintained. Here’s what their home pages look like along with the dates they were last updated.

Protect Our Elections (March, 2019)

Justice Through Music Project (January, 2019)

Act Up Enterprises (July, 2018)

Russia Dossier (June, 2018)

Treasonist Trump (December, 2017)

We Stand With Ukraine (August, 2017)

Manafort Watch (September, 2016)

I find the dates that some these sites were active and the topics they covered interesting when viewed in the context of the recent collusion conspiracy false narrative.

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: 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 …

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.

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.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The TKPOTD from two years ago today dealt with some of Team Kimberlin’s failures to intimidate me with their false narratives and quickly abandoned websites. BTW, this post is TKPOTD 2176.

* * * * *

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin complains about this feature and its daily focus on him, the other members of Team Kimberlin, and their activities. According to this post’s URL which WordPress auto increments, this is TKPOTD number 1450.

hogewatch-dot-comTeam Kimberlin’s online pushback has been quite ineffective. The hogewash dot net website they put up didn’t last long, and the obscene pictures posted there by the Cabin Boy™ wound up as evidence supporting the renewal of the first peace order against him. In fact, none of their online campaigns against me have lasted more than a few days, and all have fizzled. Some never got off the ground; hogewatch dot com, for example, is a blank site. There’s a Hoge Watch tab over at Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread, but the Cabin Boy™ only posted to it for a couple of weeks, and he appears to have lost interest in it.

Failing failures gotta fail.

* * * * *

Team Kimberlin has let Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread go fallow several times. In fact, it’s been almost three months since the site had a new post. However, I’m told that there may be someone available to work with the site. Very soon.

We’ll see.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The Dread Deadbeat Private-Eye Kimberlin isn’t just a failure at lawfare. In fact, he fails at just about everything he tries. He’s been involved in trying to dig up dirt to support the Russia/Republican collusion false narrative for a couple of years, but if we can believe his russiadossier dot org website, his search hasn’t any any better luck than the official deep state investigation.Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Team Kimberlin tells lies, and sometimes those lies get a bit of circulation beyond Team Kimberlin’s own websites. This post about #BrettKimberlin’s Latest Lies from six years ago today deals with one example of how Team Kimberlin tried to influence the 2012 presidential election.

* * * * *

Stacy McCain has a summary of Team Kimberlin’s latest lying attack. This one is aimed at a Romney campaign staffer. Posting at Democratic Revolution as under the name of one of his not-for-profits (a cheesy outfit I call the Velveeta Revolution), Team Kimberlin accuses Romney staffer Bill Murray of fraud. That posting relies on an article at The Democratic Daily [memory-holed link] by Alex Brant-Zawadzki. Mr. Brant-Zawadzki is a cyber colleague of Neal Rauhauser. Mr. Rauhauser works with Brett Kimberlin at Velveeta Revolution.

As Stacy McCain notes:

Brant-Zawadzki’s article (“Romney Staffer Committing Charitable Fraud“) refers to the American Liberty Alliance, a Tea Party-oriented project launched by Eric Odom in 2009 that was subsequently dissolved, as well as the National Bloggers Club, as points of association between Murphy and Ali Akbar, a conservative New Media strategist who is president of the National Bloggers Club. Brant-Zawadzki’s claim that the club is a “fraud” appears to be based entirely on the fact that the non-profit has not yet filed its first report with the Internal Revenue Service. Yet as Akbar has explained, the club was only organized in February of this year, and has up to one full year to report its activities to the IRS.

I’ll bet that the National Bloggers Club could be persuaded to open its books for an audit if either the Justice Through Music Project or (OK, I’ll use it’s legal name) the Velvet Revolution did the same.

Put up or shut up, Mr. Kimberlin.

UPDATE—There’s been some buzz on the Interwebs about whether or not the National Bloggers Club is a 503(c)(3) organization. In order to determine that, we can look at 26 USC 503(c):

(c) List of exempt organizations

(3) Corporations, and any community chest, fund, or foundation, organized and operated exclusively for religious, charitable, scientific, testing for public safety, literary, or educational purposes, or to foster national or international amateur sports competition (but only if no part of its activities involve the provision of athletic facilities or equipment), or for the prevention of cruelty to children or animals, no part of the net earnings of which inures to the benefit of any private shareholder or individual, no substantial part of the activities of which is carrying on propaganda, or otherwise attempting, to influence legislation (except as otherwise provided in subsection (h)), and which does not participate in, or intervene in (including the publishing or distributing of statements), any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for public office.

IANAL, but from what I know about the National Bloggers Club it seems to fit that description. Some people are writing that because NBC has not filed with the IRS yet for recognition of an exemption, they are not organized as a 503(c)(3) entity. That doesn’t seem to be what the Internal Revenue Code requires. Indeed, the IRS web page on how to register as a 501(c)(3) has this:

Generally, organizations required to apply for recognition of exemption must notify the Service within 27 months from the date of their formation to be treated as described in section 501(c)(3) from the date formed.

Clearly, NBC is within that 27 month window. There really is nothing to see here. We do need to move along and stop feeding the trolls.

UPDATE 2—As I mentioned above, IANAL nor am I any sort of tax professional. However, I have been a director or trustee of several 501(c)(3) organizations and was the Treasurer responsible for IRS filings at one. I write based on that experience. There’s someone hiding behind a nom de cyber who is trying to post incomplete (and therefore misleading) information about what a 501(c)(3) organization is required to do and when it is required to do it. Nice try, but you’re blocked.

* * * * *

The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin continued his lying attack against the National Bloggers Club, spinning a false narrative in his RICO Madness LOLsuit court filings alleging that NBC had not even filed for 501(c)(3) status. He kept it up until NBC received its acknowledgement from the IRS as a 501(c)(3) organization.

Six years ago today, The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin managed to get Aaron Walker arrested on a false criminal charge. He’s my report from that day.

* * * * *

Stacy McCain is reporting that Aaron Walker was taken into custody following the Kimberlin v. Walkerhearing this morning.

Stay tuned.

UPDATE–The Other McCainreports:

Just spoke to a source who confirms that witnesses saw Walker led out of the courtroom in handcuffs. Ali Akbar, president of the National Bloggers Club, Tweets: Will know more on Aaron’s situation at 3:30/4:30pm.

UPDATE 2–Gateway Pundit has a copy of the final peace order posted.

UPDATE 3–Ali Akbar tweets:

#BrettKimberlin is planning on serving at least 5 of us in the coming days. So his allies say. Ready.

UPDATE 4–There are more posts about Brett Kimberlin and his abuse of bloggers on the HOME page. Scroll down through the past week.

UPDATE 5–An eye witness report of the hearing is posted here.

UPDATE 6–Another eye witness report is here.

UPDATE 7–katgburke tweets that the Montgomery County State’s Attorney says the arrest was for violation of the peace order not the assault charge.

UPDATE 8–The Blaze, OTOH, is reporting that they were told by a court clerk that the arrest was for the assault charge. This shows how difficult it is to get correct information on a breaking story. Sit tight. Stay tuned. The truth is out there.

UPDATE 9–@AaronWorthing (that’s Aaron Walker) tweets:

I cant say more until I talk to my lawyer but… i do really need your help right now. And I appreciate your support.

UPDATE 10—Eugene Volokh has a post on Aaron Walker, Brett Kimberlin, and the Fog of Litigation. Read the whole thing, including the comments.

Neither Aaron not I are done with him yet.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Whenever the facts are not in his favor, The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin starts whining about being victimized by false narratives as he spins his own bogus tales. The TKPOTD from three years ago today gives an example.

* * * * *

One of the problems that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin should be considering in the drafting of his omnibus opposition to the stack of motions to dismiss his Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness is Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)(3) which requires that

the factual contentions have evidentiary support or, if specifically so identified, will likely have evidentiary support after a reasonable opportunity for further investigation or discovery …

For example, consider this from paragraph 249 of his second amended complaint.

ECF 135-249There is not only no evidence to support that contention, the evidence refutes it. With only one exception, I have never been in the same place as Brett Kimberlin other than in a courthouse (or its near environs such surrounding sidewalks or parking lots) for an open hearing where I was either a party or covering the open hearing for this blog. Obviously, when I was a party at a hearing, I had every right to be present. Similarly—as the judge told TDPK when he tried to have me thrown out of a courtroom during a hearing—members of the public have the right to attend open court hearings, and I have a First Amendment right to cover open hearings as a blogger. There’s no stalking there.

The exception occurred at the Carroll County Senior Center on 27 January, 2014, during the mediation session between Bill Schmalfeldt and me concerning the disposition of peace order violation charges against Schmalfeldt. Kimberlin was in the building. He had driven Schmalfeldt to the meeting. Of course, he had the right to give Schmalfeldt a ride, but the meeting was not open. He had no right to be hanging around the Senior Center during the meeting.

TDPK has provided transportation for Schmalfeldt for hearings in District Court in Howard County and District and Circuit Courts in Carroll County. He attended those hearings. He also attended a Hoge v. Schmalfeldt hearing in U. S. District Court in Baltimore. If the theory of hearing attendance that he wishes to apply to me is valid, then he has been stalking me. Fortunately for TDPK, that bit advice he’s had from Acme is wrong.

popcorn4bkOn the one hand, I suspect it will be somewhat exasperating to have to deal with yet another bogus court filing from TDPK. On the other, I do have a certain curiosity to see what sort of nonsense he throws out. He has until close of business next Monday to get his opposition to the court.

Tick, tock.

* * * * *

TDPK did file his omnibus opposition to our motions to dismiss. Judge Hazel evaluated it along with our motions and replies and wrote an order dismissing the LOLsuit. That order used one form or another of the word fail over thirty times in describing Kimberlin’s complaint and opposition to our motion.

Everything proceeded as I had foreseen.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin seems to project his own behavior onto others.ECF 135-124That’s from his second amended complaint for his Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness. It doesn’t pass the giggle test, especially with respect to Glenn Beck, Michelle Malkin, The Franklin Center, or RedState. No one in his right mind would believe that their coverage of Brett Kimberlin has had any significant effect on their Internet presence.

Yes, my coverage of TDPK has probably generated a significant percentage of the interest in Hogewash!, but I’ve published a mix of documented facts and satire. What few errors I’ve published have been corrected when they were verified. That doesn’t qualify as creating false narratives.

OTOH, many of the fundraising websites with DONATE buttons that benefit Justice Through Music Project … well, let’s just say they are very selective in what truth they might contain. False narratives? That’s not for me to say, but they don’t strike me as trustworthy.

timer-blackMeanwhile, the timer is ticking down. TDPK’s omnibus opposition to all the motions to dismiss his RICO Madness are due at close of business two weeks from today. Perhaps he will find some creative way to explain to the court why his paragraph 124 supports a claim upon which relief can be granted. He might even surprise us with a truthful narrative to support him claims.

Don’t hold your breath.

And in other news … there’s still no winner in the contest.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One of the false narratives about Brett Kimberlin that has circulated around the Internet is a fantasy about his being “exonerated” of his bombing and dope smuggling convictions and about his having received a substantial settlement. Here’s an example from Democratic Underground.

The truth is that Kimberlin had his parole revoked for two years in 1997 and wound up staying in prison until 2001. He managed to keep the Parole Commission in the dark concerning any parole violations, so in 2006 he was released from supervision. That’s not exactly an exoneration.

Notice that I said he kept the Parole Commission in the dark about parole violation. One of the usual conditions of parole is to refrain from association with other felons. Here’s the true narrative: While he was still under supervision, Brett Kimberlin hired Craig Gillette, who has a child pornography conviction, to work at Justice Through Music Project. According to Mrs. Kimberlin, Gillette lived with the Kimberlins and their children in their one-room apartment in the basement of Kimberlin’s mother’s house for an extended period.
