Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


This TKPOTD from five years ago today dealt with a couple of the minor players on Team Kimberlin.

* * * * *

I see from the comment section that Very Ordinary Seaman Ferguson has graciously given me permission to sue him and 57F Osborne. Perhaps I shall, although if I do, it won’t be on his schedule. I shall file at a time of my choosing. I shall choose the forum.

* * * * *

As a somewhat more successful musician than Willam Ferguson once noted,

You can’t always get what you want,
But if you try, sometime you find
You get what you need.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Probably the least competent and most mockable member of Team Kimberlin is the musician wannabe William Ferguson. The TKPOTD from four years ago today dealt with one his failed predictions of the direst of dire direness that was supposed to befall me.

* * * * *

S_A201605121243ZNow, that’s an interesting turn of phrase.

* * * * *

Later that day, I put up this post—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. My lawyer had the necessary evidence sitting in a folder ready to be introduced if needed.

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

* * * * *

I seems like everything Team Kimberlin has touched since the Turn of the Century has been a dud.

The mockery continues.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Some of Team Kimberlin’s attempts at harassment have been downright comical, and as I noted six years ago today, Some Things Aren’t Worth Bothering With.

* * * * *

I’m told that as part of his mockery of me Very Ordinary Seaman Ferguson has been trying to run one of the most common plays in Team Kimberlin’s book, false death threats.@DeeinHouston201401001846Z

Yawn. I’ll let Rick Blaine react for me.

* * * * *

BTW, Team Kimberlin’s William Ferguson should not be confused with the talented operatic tenor. VOSF is the guy behind the electronic music tracks emitted under the name Sub-Aetha. Here’s a list of his top ten track on YouTube.Listen at your own risk.

The mockery continues.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


A TKPOTD from a few days ago, took a look at one of the hangers-on among Team Kimberlin, Very Ordinary Seaman Ferguson, an alleged musician and PHP programmer. It’s been reported that he didn’t enjoy that post and that he took to Twitter for a burst of self-pointage, self-laughery, and self-mockification.

BTW, VOSF still imagines that he has made a noticeable dent in the Universe. The Gentle Reader can check out Ferguson’s blog and form his own opinion. Meanwhile, …

The Mockery Continues.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Not every TKPOTD is about Brett Kimberlin or his Internet PR flack Bill Schmalfeldt. On occasion, we’ve taken a look and some of the bit players. For example, five years ago today, William Ferguson was the object of this site’s pointage, laughery, and mockification.

* * * * *

There seems to be a certain lassitude among the members of Team Kimberlin. Take Very Ordinary Seaman Ferguson for example. I don’t generally concern myself with ankle-biters like VOSF, but I take a look at his The Mockery Continues blog (No, I won’t link to it.) every six weeks or so to see if they’ve finally got his meds adjusted.

I took a look yesterday evening and found that he hasn’t had anything to say about me for a couple of weeks now.

Hmmmmm.

Either he’s disappointed by having his fearless leader’s case thrown out or they’re finally giving him enough of the right stuff. Or perhaps both. It really is no concern of mine.

* * * * *

I must confess that comparing Very Ordinary Seaman Ferguson to Peter Lorre is unfair. Lorre’s whistling is vastly better than anything VOSF has ever served up as alleged music.

The Mockery Continues.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The TKPOTD from four years ago today was a typical installment in this blog’s continuing pointage, laughery, and mockification of Team Kimberlin.

* * * * *

Team Kimberlin’s abysmal record of predicting the outcomes of their lawfare is a wonderful source of pointing and laughter. Here are some more nonsense tweets from 2013.TK2013tweets_b The Cabin Boy’s™ 16 October tweet came the day that his motion for a modification of the first peace order (one that would have let him ignore it if he said that he was doing “journalism”) was denied. The tweet contains two errors. First, the state’s highest court is called the Court of Appeals. Second, instead of throwing out the peace order “TOMORROW or Friday,” the CoA threw out the Cabin Boy’s™ appeal the next week.

Very Ordinary Seaman Ferguson reacted to the news of the CoA denying Schmalfeldt’s appeal by opining that I was in bigger trouble because of the Kimberlin lawsuits. While they’ve been a pain in the neck (or a couple of feet lower), they really haven’t caused me any trouble. The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin gutted his own case through incompetence in the state lawsuit, and he isn’t performing any better in the RICO Madness.

The third tweet is typical of one of the Cabin Boy’s rants trying to justify harassment as activity protected by the First Amendment. No court has bought his line yet.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Team Kimberlin is a bunch of liars and clumsy ones at that. Five years ago today, I ran a post titled He Didn’t See It Here that dealt with one of Bill Schmalfeldt’s false narratives.

* * * * *

After returning home from church and having lunch, I checked in on my Twitter timeline and found this:@wjjhogeTL201401261800ZCurious, I took a look at @CabinBoyRadio and found this:@cabinboyradio201401261623ZSince I had no idea what Schmalfeldt was talking about, I checked out his blog. It seems that he is trying to pin a bunch of “spam” comments to his blog on me. Of course, none of them are written in anything like the style of my tweets or comments on other blogs. None of them come any IP address associated with me. The IPs appear to be spoofed rather than TOR IPs because at least one is from AT&T Wireless, an unlikely spot for a TOR node.

I also found this rant.

[Image deleted. It was a rant about someone referring to him as “Schmuckfeldt.”]

There are several places where he may have seen that name before, but he never saw it in a post on this blog. I’m sure of that. I just ran a global search of all posts, this was the search return (Click the image to embiggen it.):ScreenCap201401261804Z
I see three possible sources for the comments that Schmalfedt complains about. The first would be someone opposed to Team Kimberlin who is yanking Schmalfeldt’s chain. If that’s the case, I hope whoever it is stops. The second possibility is that a member of Team Kimberlin or a supporter/eneabler is doing it to stir up trouble. The third is that Schmalfeldt created the comments himself in an attempt to run the “accuse the accuser” play one more time.

Whatever. He didn’t see that name in a Hogewash! blog post.

UPDATE—After my Sunday afternoon nap, I checked my Twitterz again and found more tweets about Schmalfeldt and evidence. So I went over to @CabinBoyRadio again and found that he had posted some tweets allegedly from me. I was puzzled where he found them, because I couldn’t remember sending them. Then he tweeted this link to Very Ordinary Seaman Ferguson: http://topsy.com/s?q=schmuckfeldt%20from%3Awjjhoge&type=tweet. I clicked on it and found the tweets that he was claiming were mine. This one bothered me.forged_tweet 363781895428907009I don’t cc myself on Twitter. What’s the point? So I clicked on the Reply button of the top tweet and got this.forger_tweet355754735903428608That’s not my tweet, is it? Indeed, it is tweet number 355754735903428608 which was sent by @AaronWorthing.@aaronworthing20130712

None of the other tweets are mine either.

This is not the first time that Bill Schmalfeldt has been caught trying to forge evidence. He would be well advised to stop. Very soon. As in now.

UPDATE 2—I notice he also tries to use postings at hogewash dot net as evidence. Oh, please! That site ran copies of the obscene images Schmalfeldt created of me last summer. It’s clearly not a site associated with or controlled by me.

UPDATE 3—If the Gentle Reader would like to see the original tweets on Twitter, click here and scroll down to last July.

UPDATE 4—Here’s what turns up when one does the same Topsy word search on @AaronWorthing:topsy_AW_SchmuckfeldtAs you can see, the “Hitler is not happy …” tweet is Aaron Walker’s which proves absolutely nothing about the identity of Kimberlin Unmasked. It does, however, confirm that what Schmalfeldt has been trying to peddle is bogus.

#Fail

* * * * *

The technique of using a Topsy search to generate pseudo-tweets that appear to have been originated by someone who was included with an @ mention was recycled in March, 2015, when The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin attempted to use forged evidence during a hearing for a peace order petition against me.

I’m pretty sure that I’ve previously mentioned that Kimberlin has been convicted of perjury and attempting to forge DoD driver’s licenses. He got his name in the papers in 2017 in connection with fake documents apparently aimed at causing trouble for the Trump administration.

Why would anyone believe anything he says?

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One of the lesser members of Team Kimberlin is a loser by the name of William Ferguson (aka Very Ordinary Seaman Ferguson). His principal contribution to Team Kimberlin’s PR effort was a blog called The Mockery Continues which was the subject of the TKPOTD from three years ago today.

* * * * *

While trudging through The Mockery Continues, I found these words:

In fact, I could do just that – recycle my old blogs and they’d be just as relevant today as they were the day I wrote them.

Just so. But not the way he thinks.

* * * * *

His self-mockery has continued in the form of occasional comments at Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread and tweets.

Losing losers gotta lose.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Wrong and wronger. That’s probably the best way to describe the “mockery” to which one member of Team Kimberlin, Very Ordinary Seaman Ferguson, tried to subject many of the defendants in The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s LOLsuits, especially me. Of course, the proper response was to make Ferguson the object of pointage, laughery, and mockification based on his silly claims. This Prevarication Du Jour from five years ago today is an example of such pushback.

* * * * *

wilsb8_201310220313ZVery Ordinary Seaman Ferguson thinks that I have a bigger problem now, does he? I suppose he thinks that the two marvelously deficient lawsuits that The Dread Pirate Kimberlin has filed against me are big problems.

They are, but not for me.

If by some chance either of the suits survives a motion to dismiss, Brett Kimberlin will have to answer a lot of questions during discovery, and he will provide discovery this time. Because if he doesn’t, that will be grounds for dismissal. So either each suit is dismissed, or Kimberlin is subject to discovery, or he ducks discovery again and each suit is dismissed.

Of course, I suspect that one or more of the defendants in either or both of the suits will have counterclaims, and they will likely multiply after discovery. Also, I suspect that one or more of the defendants in either or both of the suits will be adding parties as part of their counterclaims. If I were a member of Team Kimberlin, I’d … no, I not gonna give ’em any advice.

The lawsuits aren’t a problem. They’re a golden opportunity.

I’m reminded of a line from the movie Patton.

* * * * *

The one suit against me that made it past motions to dismiss resulted in Kimberlin being sanctioned for playing games with discovery. And then he lost the case at trial. All his other lawfare failed on motions to dismiss or a motion for summary judgment.

And the pointage, laughery, and mockification continues.

Moral Wins and Loses


While I was drinking my first cup of coffee this morning and looking though the overnight comments here at Hogewash!, I found this one had been made to Sunday’s Bonus TKPOTD.I’m not sure where the “$70K” price tag comes from, but this question is an important one at root and deserves an answer. As far as I’m concerned, the answer is, “A life well lived.”

Bonus Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


I see over at the Sonoran Conservative that Very Ordinary Seaman Ferguson is providing a fresh opportunity for pointage, laughery, and mockification by running off at the keyboard about global warming. You’d think that someone who had trouble figuring out how Twitter works would realize that he’s over his head discussing AGW, but …

No, really, Ferguson seemed to have trouble grasping a basic feature of Twitter as this post from five years ago today shows.

* * * * *

When I got home from the engineering seminar I attended at Goddard Space Flight Center this afternoon, I found this in the Interactions tab of my Twitter timeline—wilsb8_201309091528Z

I didn’t have to “dig” for it by clicking on the Mentions tab. Also, when I checked by phone, I found this in on the Connect tab of my Twiiter app—phonephoto2103090901

It’s pretty clear that these guys don’t understand how Twitter really works. Very Ordinary Seaman Ferguson’s tweets popped right up in my timeline. No “digging” was required.

* * * * *

The mockery continues.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Team Kimberlin is predictably vain and stupidly so. The Gentle Reader may remember that Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Brett Unread has been quiet for the past three months. The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin has been unable to find the time to deal with any of that unimportant news that’s been cluttering the Interwebz since mid April. But yesterday, a story too important to ignore hit.

After TDPK’s hearing about the Maryland Court of Appeals decision in the Walker v. Maryland, et al. case, a story (No, I won’t link to it.) was hurriedly published at BU. Of course, the post is a mostly inaccurate representation of what has happened, but it’s the comments following the post that are the real hoot with their silly disconnection from reality. I particularly enjoyed this one:LMAO! It’s almost as if they run that site for the sole purpose of being the objects of pointage, laughery, and mockification.

The Dread Deadbeat Pirate/Pro-Se/Publisher/Perofrmer/Prevaricator/Pedo Kimberlin and his crew should have cut there losses and quit. I’m not through with them yet.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Failing musicianship is a common characteristic among many members of Team Kimberlin. Very Ordinary Seaman Ferguson has never had much success peddling his sub-aetha schtick. Cabin Boy Bill Schmalfeldt’s song parodies are usually the low point of his podcast demo du jour. And, as the TKPOTD from four years ago today noted, The Dread Deadbeat Performer Kimberlin’s lack of talent has stunted his musical ambitions.

* * * * *

Brett Kimberlin has wanted a successful music career for decades. The Gentle Reader can find his music videos lurking on YouTube and see why success has eluded him. On page 354 of Citizen K: The Deeply Weird American Journey of Brett Kimberlin, Mark Singer quotes Brett Kimberlin as saying:

My lyrics are very potent, and they’ll touch a lot of people. I see myself as being in the Phil Collins mold more than, say, in the Michael Jackson mold. I can’t be fake that way. I have to be real.

Certainly, Kimberlin does not rise to Michael Jackson’s stature …

* * * * *

Also, none of them seem to have had much success with a day job either.

Hmmmm.

 

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.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Matt Osborne is even more stupid than I thought. After being caught redhanded publishing lies when he was editor of Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Boy Unread and having to spend a year or so dodging being held legally and morally accountable for his actions, he tried to respond to yesterday’s TKPOTD with this comment.That YouTube link goes to an illegal posting of courtroom audio from Brett Kimberlin’s failed appeal of his 2015 peace order petition against me. (Courtroom audio provided by a Maryland Court Clerk’s Technical Services is may not be broadcast or posted online.) Osborne deceitfully characterizes Judge Creighton’s comments that he posted as directed specifically to me. They were not—as can be seen on pages 95 and 96 of the transcript.

Read the whole transcript and see how pitiful The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s case was and how Tetyana Kimberlin’s teenage daughter had to try to make his case for him when the judge wouldn’t let him practice law without a license.

Oh, one more thing—William Ferguson also tried to comment. His self-mockery continues.

UPDATE—It must have frustrated Bunny Boy that his comment didn’t make through moderation. Osborne has me blocked on Twitter, but I’m told that he’s bravely tweeted a link to that YouTube clip from behind that block.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Team Kimberlin tells lies. They even lie to each other as is show in this Prevarication Du Jour from four years ago today. Back then, the Cabin Boy™ was trying to raise money online to finance a LOLsuit against me.

* * * * *

As I noted earlier, Bill Schmalfeldt doesn’t seem to be getting much support from his Internet buddies with his Baghdad Blob’s Bleg trying to raise $25,000 to fund a lawsuit. My earlier post brought in fifty bucks from Matt Osborne, but that’s it.wilsb8_201401070053ZLet’s pretend for a moment that Very Ordinary Seaman Ferguson is telling the truth. He follows the @DespicableBill account, so the Cabin Boy’s tweets have been showing up in VOSF’s timeline. VOSF’s not knowing would be the result of ignoring dozens of tweets over the last few days.

OTOH, if we were to scroll through @wilsb8’s tweets, we would find this—wilsb8_201401050223ZReading that exchange sorta/kinda pokes a hole in any rational belief that VOSF was unaware of the Cabin Boy’s fundraiser. In spite of the likelihood that the Cabin Boy will accuse me of “blind unreasoning hatred,” it seems reasonable to conclude that VOSF lied.

Oh, the premium that the Cabin Boy was offering was his urinal calibration target.

* * * * *

I couldn’t make this stuff up no matter how hard I tried.

UPDATE—Oh, look what I found held in Moderation:Note that while the comment is snarky, it doesn’t try to refute the facts of today’s post. Yes, the mockery continues—but not in the way that Team Kimberlin wishes,

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Team Kimberlin has always been a rinky-dink operation staffed with losers. As I noted four years ago today, Second-Rate People Hire Third-Rate Employees

* * * * *

That’s a principle of personnel management that I’ve seen demonstrated many times during my business career. It explains a lot about Team Kimberlin. Consider, for example, the choice of someone like Cabin Boy Bill Schmalfeldt to handle PR.

It also explains Very Ordinary Seaman Ferguson. (My recent post touching on The Dread Performer Kimberlin’s musicianship reminded me of VOSF.)

After listening to his Sub-Aetha offerings on iTunes (which mostly sound like electric Jew’s harp recordings), it’s obvious that he is a part of Team Kimberlin to make TDPK’s stuff look good by comparison.

* * * * *

Meanwhile, we’ll see how well “Staff Writer” does with Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy? Boy Unread.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Yesterday’s TKPOTD must have stoked some envy out in Sutter County, California. Very Ordinary Seaman Ferguson had this exchange with the Cabin Boy™ yesterday—

I’ve never heard lorddewclaw play either live or on a recording, so I can’t comment on what kind of musician he is. However, I have heard recordings that VOSF has posted of his alleged music. Based on what I’ve heard, I doubt that he could have made it as a sideman on any of Brett Kimberlin’s recordings. I’d advise him not to give up his day job, but I’m not sure he has a real one.

Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. News


Here are the net results of today’s motions hearing in the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit.

William Ferguson was dismissed from the case for lack of personal jurisdiction.

Both of Bill Schmalfeldt’s motions to dismiss were denied. His answer to the complaint is due within 15 days.

The motion for alternate service on Matt Osborne was denied, and Judge Hecker instructed me how to proceed with service of process against Osborne. I will follow his directions.

All of the Kimberlins’ pending motions were denied. That included the motion to quash the subpoena to GoDaddy; the motion to dismiss the suit as a SLAPP suit; the motion to find me a vexatious litigant; and their motion to dismiss for improper venue and failure to state a claim. At the close of the hearing Brett Kimberlin moved that discovery be stayed, and I offered to stay discovery until 17 October, the Monday after the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. trial is scheduled to end. The judge ordered a stay until the 17th.

My requests for default against Almighty Media and Breitbart Unmasked were denied because there is no proof that they are legal entities. Their status is under investigation.

My motion to strike the reference to me as a “serial stalker” and “sexual predator” in the title of one of the Kimberlins’ motions was granted, and the judge warned that such epithets have no place in the proceedings. The Clerk was ordered to redact those words from the online docket and the paper record.

My motion to strike the confidential discovery material from the Frey case that had been included in one of the Kimberlins’ filings was denied. Judge Hecker felt it was the federal courts job to enforce its protective order.

My motion to strike all of the Kimberlins’ improperly signed filings was denied, but the judge ordered the Kimberlins to correct the signature blocks on their filings within 15 days. In line with that ruling, the judge determined that their second answer would be taken as their operative answer if they correct the signature problem.

My motion to compel GoDaddy’s compliance with a subpoena was granted.

The judge said to expect a scheduling order within 30 to 45 days.

So as things stand now, the case continues to go forward against the Kimberlins and Bill Schmalfeldt.

Did I get everything I asked for? No, I didn’t.

Did I get everything I expected? Let me put it like this: Everything proceeded better than I foresaw.

Oh, one more thing … I’d like to thank the Lickspittles who showed up to watch the hearing today. I appreciate their support.

UPDATE—Yes, it’s true that my request for default against Schmalfeldt was denied. As noted above, he has 15 days to file a proper answer.kl201609272125zI wasn’t wearing a tuxedo. Evening wear would not have been appropriate in the court. I wore a navy blue pinstripe suit with a white oxford cloth shirt, medium blue bowtie, black oxford shoes, and dark socks. The Cabin Boy™ was casually attired. The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin wore a rumpled suit, a white shirt with no tie, and white socks.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


There’s a motions hearing scheduled in the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit Tuesday morning. There are a bunch of motions from the defendants: one from William Ferguson, two from Bill Schmalfeldt, and four from the Brett and/or Tetyana Kimberlin. I have ten motions pending, five of which are requests for default against Brett Kimberlin, Tetyana Kimberlin, Bill Schmalfeldt, Almighty Media, and Breitbart Unmasked. Another of my motions seeks alternate service on Matt Osborne. The rest mostly deal with responding to to motions from the defendants.

If blogging is a bit slow today, it will be because I’ll be preparing for tomorrow.
