Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The Team Kimberlin member who as tried hardest and failed most miserably at real world relevance seems to be William Ferguson (aka Very Ordinary Seaman Ferguson). Two years ago today, he was tweeting about the direst of dire direness about to come my way, as I reported in this post called Bombshell Du Jour?.

* * * * *

I wonder if this is what Ferguson thinks is his “bombshell”?S_A201605130550ZThose are the forged tweets that Brett Kimberlin attempted to use as evidence during the District Court hearing for the peace order he sought against me last year. Those fakes have been debunked (go here for details), and the doubling down by Breitbart Umasked Bunny Boy Unread on a defamatory story that included them is one of the bases for the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit.S_A201605130553Z

If I had been lying about those tweets during the District Court hearing, one would expect that they would have been offered again during Kimberlin’s appeal to the Circuit Court along with additional backup evidence developed during the two month delay. That didn’t happen—perhaps because Kimberlin knew that I could prove that I was not the source of the tweets.

The Team Lickspittle EOD crew was sent to disarm Ferguson’s “bombshell” over a year ago. It turned out to be a dud.

The pointage, laughery, and mockification continues.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin lost all of the LOLsuits he’s filed since the beginning of 2012 for three reason. First, the facts were against him. Second, the law was against him. Third, his disregard for the Rules of Civil Proceedure doomed many of his filings. The TKPOTD from four years ago today dealt with a filing in the RICO Madness LOLsuit that hit that trifecta.

* * * * *

Both of The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s vexatious lawsuits in which I am a defendant are grinding their ways through the state and federal courts. Given the frivolous nature of TDPK’s complaints, I have optimistic expectations concerning the final results of the suits. There have been several recent developments that lead me to believe that Brett Kimberlin is becoming desperate. Indeed, it seems that panic has driven him to turn the stupid knob up to <del>11</del> 12.

All is proceeding as I have foreseen—and I hope to be able to share the details of some of TDPK’s latest mistakes before long.

Stay tuned.

UPDATE—As I’ve noted above, good legal strategy prevents me from publishing everything I know about. However, I’ve been given clearance to share this example of TDPK’s going full-Acme.

IANAL, I’m an engineer. I’m not sure how lawyers would describe that proposed motion, but we engineers would categorize it as bullshit.

The facts were against him. He really did alter the evidence presented in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. LOLsuit.

The law was against him. Michael Smith, representing Michelle Malkin and Twitchy, was not out of line providing the federal court with evidence of TDPK’s altering of documents in the state case. His motion related a forged summons in the federal case.

And TDPK blew his motion by failing to follow the timing required by Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11. The rule requires that the target of the motion be served a copy 21 days before it is filed with the court in order allow him to correct his error. The Malkin motion that Kimberlin was bitching about was filed on 28 April. Kimberlin filed his sanctions motion on 7 May and claimed that was when he had served Michael Smith. Only 9 days had elapsed.

He definitely got in over his head.

Team Kimberlin spins all sorts of false narratives against their enemies. The TKPOTD from two years ago deals with one example.

* * * * *

Bill Schmalfeldt’s latest false claim about being harassed is based on his hurt feelings caused by someone allegedly sending him a blog comment with a link to a photoshopped picture of him eating what appear to be human fetuses. The original version of the photo—which the Cabin Boy™ created and posted on Twitter—shows him eating kittens instead. The Cabin Boy™ has an elaborate story about how the picture was sent from Manassas, Virginia, so it must have been sent by Aaron Walker.

Northern Virginia is one of the main hubs of the Internet. The address the Cabin Boy™ claims the comment passed through is very close to a university campus and computing center. <sarc>Ergo, the only person who could have sent the comment must be Aaron Walker.</sarc>

I’m reminded of an earlier incident when the Cabin Boy™ stated that he was positive that certain writings were in Aaron handwriting. Of course, it was obvious that they weren’t. They were legible. Similarly, the photoshopping in the image that has the Cabin Boy™ spun up is too well done to be Aaron’s handiwork.

More to the point, why would Aaron send such comment to Bill Schmalfledt? Aaron appears to be on the verge of delivering a good outcome for his clients in the LOLsuit VI: The Undiscovered Krendler. Why would he blow up their case with such a juvenile stunt?

I’m further reminded of the hoax Schmalfeldt tried to pull off by claiming the letter he sent me in January, 2015, was a forgery. I’m reminded of the forged emails he claimed were from Lynn Thomas. I’m reminded of … well, you get the point, I think, Gentle Reader. This smells like one of the Cabin Boy’s™ previous attempts to falsely tag one of his enemies with manufactured evidence of imaginary bad acts.

It’s all becoming quite tiresome.

Lying liars gotta lie.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The Cabin Boy™ is a lousy liar and an even worse forger. His incompetence invariably leads to his being caught—as this post from a couple of years ago today pointing out that  A Retraction is in Order demonstrates—

* * * * *

The Cabin Boy™ published this tweet roughly 24 hours ago—TheMerryWidower201511180643ZThis tweet states as a fact that I created the “flaw” in the version of the email header used in my reporting, that I altered what Schmalfeldt had originally published. Over the past day, it has been demonstrated that the image I published was a true and correct copy of the image attached to the Cabin Boy’s™ original tweet. Further, it has been established that the images on his blog were changed shortly after my TKPOTD published yesterday. He tried to fix his problem but failed, and he got caught.

It is now abundantly clear that my reporting was accurate. It is also clear that Bill Schmalfeldt lied. He knowingly misrepresented the facts concerning the provenance of the email header and shamelessly attempted to alter the files on his blog to try to cover up his malfeasance. And he lied by claiming that I had manipulated evidence.

I don’t believe that the Cabin Boy™ is ashamed of what he did. If he feels any sorrow, it is for being caught and not for having lied. It is, therefore, unreasonable to expect an apology. However, it is not unreasonable to demand a retraction. Bill Schmalfeldt should prominently post a statement on the home page of his blog admitting that he lied about my report. He should also post a sticky tweet at the top of his timeline making the same admission. Also, on both the blog home page and the sticky tweet he should admit to altering the email header.

Do I believe that Bill Schmalfeldt will do the right thing? No. I don’t. That would require a level of honor and honesty that I do not believe he possesses.

* * * * *

Damon Runyon once noted, “The race is not always to the swift nor the battle to the strong, but that’s the way to bet.” If he were alive to day, he could safely bet against the Cabin Boy™ doing the right thing.

For a while back in 2015, Bill Schmalfledt tried to prove that Lynn Thomas was Paul Krendler. When he couldn’t come up with real evidence, he forged some, and, of course, he got caught. This TKPOTD from two years ago today tells part of the story—

* * * * *

The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt has been tap dancing around today asking for evidence that the email he published on Twitter which he alleges was from Lynn Thomas is a forgery. I wouldn’t normally bother to respond to his request, but I’m growing weary of his silly games. It’s time for him to shut up and admit what he did. Also, there have been enough hints posted in the comment sections of the previous posts that it’s possible one of his marginally technically competent “friends” may figure out one of the other ways we caught him this time. That being the case, I’ll lay out one piece of the evidence.

To begin, the header and text are in different typefaces. That’s unusual and suggests that they are two separate documents rather than two parts of the same document. The default case would be for both to be in the same san serif font. That clue led to further examination. I’m not going to go into the digital forensics. While they support the other evidence, the single dumbest mistake the Cabin Boy™ made is obvious when one reads through the header.Email_Header_TS1TardisNotice that the email was originated at 13:15:01 PST and received less than a second later (the Interwebz are really fast) but that the intermediate time stamp is at 13:51:01. In other words, either the time stamps were clumsily edited by hand with the minutes digits being transposed on one of them, or the intermediate relay point forwarded the email before it was received. Based on my experience with applied quantum mechanics, I believe the former to be the better explanation.

#Pwned.

The Cabin Boy’s monkey dance in response to that TKPOD resulted in this Prevarication Du Jour

* * * * *

The Cabin Boy™ is trying to dance his way around the trail of evidence of his forging the header he claimed was from an email sent to him by Lynn Thomas.TheMerryWidower201511180643ZAs a commenter has noted, the version of the email header initially posted on the Cabin Boy’s™ blog is not the same as what is there now. However, my analysis was done on what was posted on Twitter, not his blog. (Others have done analyses on the original images from the blog, and those have been consistent with what I found on Twitter.)TheMerryWidower_status_666375731480559616The URL for that tweet is twitter.com/themerrywidower/status/666375731480559616, but it has now been memory-holed.TheMerryWidower_memory_hole

However, the attachments were both downloaded and screenshots were taken of them. Here’s what the header looked like as seen on the original tweet. (Click to embiggen.)TheMerryWidower201511162202attachment2As the Gentle Reader can see, the one intermediate time stamp is 13:51:01 while all the others show hh:15:01 (depending on time zone).

pantsonfireSpoliation of evidence won’t save the Cabin Boy™. Rather, it creates the presumption that the multiple archived copies are true and correct. That presumption is reinforced by his habit of putting potentially embarrassing evidence down the memory hole.

What’s waiting for the Cabin Boy™ in Room 101? The Truth.

UPDATE—I could keep the Cabin Boy™ putting up new versions of the “true” header by dribbling out bits of evidence over time, but I’m not in this as a game of gotcha. He needs to understand that we got him cold on this one. The Vast Hogewash Research Organization has documented the various versions of the header that he’s published. We know when they were created. We know which word processor he used. We know what other tools he used. Etc. I’ll throw out one more bit of information. We know when the original email header he altered was sent: Sunday, 15-Nov-15 19:42:01 UTC. That information is embedded in all the files he has published.

Bill Schmalfeldt is a liar and a forger.

Q.E.D.

Nothing proceeded as the Cabin Boy™ had hallucinated.

Forgery Du Jour


Here’s a recent tweet from the Cabin Boy™ which shows what he purports to be comments I made on his blog.Note the use of “WJJ Hoge” as the handle for the comments. The Cabin Boy™ has been caught before using that handle on comments falsely attributed to me. Here are three examples of how my handle properly appears with a blog comment— Note that the style I use is “wjjhoge”—all lower case letters and no space. The Cabin Boy™ has been dinged for this kind of crude forgery before, and yet, here it is on his blog and Twitter feed. Again.
