Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Bill Schmalfeldt tries to pass himself off as a journalist. Back in 2013, he joined the Society of Professional Journalists, apparently in an attempt bolster his claim in his appeal of the first peace order issued against that he really, truly was a working journalist and that the mean, nasty peace order infringed his First Amendment rights. Of course, his bragging about being a member of that society prompted some pointage, laughery, and mockification, beginning with this post about Professionalism from five years ago today.

* * * * *

Bill Schmalfeldt is bragging that he’s now a member of the Society of Professional Journalists. I presume that means that he went to our website, ticked the right boxes on the online form, and paid his $75 dues.

In a few years, his dues will be cut in half to the rate I pay as an “Over 62 Retired Member.”spj_memberYawn.

UPDATE—Apparently, the Cabin Boy has his panties in a knot because I’m a member of SPJ.frr201309262355ZA [redacted] fraud? Oh, come now! I presume that we were both are currently qualified for membership under the same standards, and I’m at a loss to understand why the date I joined (or rejoined, as the case may be) is of any relevance to qualification for membership. Basically, anyone who will say that he spends half-time or more doing something related to “journalism,” who is retired from doing such work, or who is studying to do such work and who pays the appropriate dues may be a member. There’s no background check or letters of recommendation required.

I was a working journalist doing broadcast news before Bill Schmalfeldt got to high school. I’m doing it again (part time) as a blogger. In between, I’ve had a career as a soldier, an engineer, and a businessman.

The Cabin Boy did get one thing right.frr201309262355aZThere’s no way I’d waste good money just to pull his chain.

* * * * *

One of the reasons that Team Kimberlin’s various schemes fail is that the lies they tell to support them are so transparent. Later in the day, five years ago today, I wound up posting about the Forgery the Cabin Boy™ published to try to keep his whining narrative alive.

* * * * *

Bill Schmalfeldt has tweeted this concerning my membership in the Society of Professional Journalists …frr201309270006Z… and included this image with his tweet.

BVIMC1jCUAEkKMOHis image has some interesting properties. For example, it’s exactly the same dimension (450 X 572 pixels) as this image I published.spj_memberThere are also some differences. Take a look at the Join Date shown on the Cabin Boy’s version. Now, look at the redaction bar for the same information in mine. The reason the bar is so long on mine is that the date and time were shown when I screen capped the information. If Schmalfeldt had removed the redaction bar from mine, the time stamp should be visible.

Also, the numbers shown for the Join Date on the Cabin Boy’s version are slightly larger than those shown on the Birth Date line. It’s almost is if someone pasted a large white rectangle over my redaction bar and then typed in a date with almost, but not quite, the right size font.

BTW, no one would have access to the my membership maintenance page without my username and password. That’s one of the reasons why the last part of my username is obscured.

Hmmmmm.

UPDATE—One commenter asks why the Join Date isn’t in a box. It isn’t a changeable item on the form so it doesn’t have a data entry box.

Speaking of boxes, here are the Birth Date and Join Date from the Cabin Boy’s version with the small box superimposed around them. Note that the slash marks for the Birth Date do not extend the full height of the box, but those for the Join Date do. Close inspection will also show that the numerals are of different height as well.dates_spj
UPDATE 2—The Gentle Reader will kindly note that I have not said that the Cabin Boy made any representation that the image he posted was of my actual information. I very carefully quoted him by reproducing his tweet. Still, the question remains—is what he posted a forgery?

UPDATE 3—The Cabin Boy says that his personal blog posts and tweets aren’t “journalism.” That’s probably what he thinks is the loophole that gets around this part of the Society of Professional Journalists Code of Ethics with respect to that modified image:

Journalists should: … Never distort the content of news photos or video.

* * * * *

None of this did anything to help the Cabin Boy’s™ appeal. The Court of Appeals denied his petition, and the Circuit Court denied his motion to amend the order and eventually renewed it for an additional six months. It was a completely wasted effort—except as a source of pointage, laughery, and mockification.

Dealing with the Cabin Boy™ has often been a battle of wits with an unarmed man.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Team Kimberlin has often tried to prove things using forged—often crude, obviously forged—documents. The TKPOTD from four years ago makes fun of one particularly stupid example.

* * * * *

Here’s a news flash! The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has filed a couple of legitimate green cards with the Restricted Delivery boxes checked. They were filed with a motion in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit and are for some mail sent two days after he had to confess his previous shenanigans to Judge Ryon. But have no fear, Gentle Reader. TDPK managed to find another document to forge as one of the exhibits. He makes this allegation in his motion.BK v Aw 2013 AltSvc-6TDPK filed the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. lawsuit on 30 August, 2013. With that in mind, consider his Exhibit E.BK v AW 2013 AltSvcKU Ex ESo TDPK informed Kimberlin Unmasked of a lawsuit filed on 30 August, 2013, on 22 February, 2013. Perhaps he’s traded his gold Prius for a blue Police Box.

The Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. LOLsuit trial did’t go as The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin expected, but everything didn’t proceed as I had foreseen either. It went better for us defendants. TDPK’s case was so shoddy that the judge stopped the trial and awarded judgment in our favor rather than require us to put up a defense.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin managed to diddle with service of court papers and get a default judgment against Seth Allen, the leftwing blogger who was the first target of his reputation management lawfare. All of this subsequent attempts failed in spite of TDPK’s efforts to forge evidence to support them. This post from six years ago today deals with one of the first reverses TDPK suffered.

* * * * *

Patterico posts an analysis of Brett Kimberlin’s Lord Voldemort’s (He Who Must Not Be Named under threat of peace order) response here. Mr. Frey provides documentation that some of the “evidence” in the Dark Lord’s exhibits are forged postings sockpuppeted to manufacture “evidence.” In the case of a pair of comments at the Patterico site, the moderation filter logged information that has been preserved even after the comments were deleted. Read the post to find out how the scam was supposed to work. The image below shows that the two comments (supposedly from different sources, and one from Mr. Frey) came from the same IP address. In Luxembourg. Owned by a ISP in the UK.

Note to the bad guys: Most blogging software and services will capture your IP address when you comment on our sites.

It will be interesting to see how Aaron Walker’s lawyers use the evidence developed by Mr. Frey in the state and federal cases now pending with/against Lord Voldemort.

* * * * *

Yes, watching TDPK’s failing campaign of lawfare has been interesting.

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 Post of the Day


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.
