Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

What might be a liar’s ultimate fear? Eight years ago today I considered what would be waiting for an editor of Breitbart Unmasked in Room 101?

* * * * *

Xenophon the Troll’s use of the term “memory hole” in a post he put up at Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it.) got me thinking about the origin of that term in the book Nineteen Eighty Four. One thought led to another, and Room 101 came to mind. Room 101 was the torture chamber at the Ministry of Love where the Party subjected a prisoner to his worst nightmare.

That got me to thinking … what would Xenophon find in Room 101?

Truth, perhaps?

Truth has always been a stranger to Breitbart Unmasked.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

The crudity of Team Kimberlin’s lies is really quite pathetic. It’s almost like catching a kid with his hand in the cookie jar. This Prevarication Du Jour from five years ago today is an example of a whopper told by Mat Osborne (using the nom de cyber Xenophon) in a Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread post. All that was necessary to prove he was lying was to show copies of the two documents The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s filed with the court.

Xenophon has more to say about Monday’s hearing in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit over at Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it.).BU201401114aUh, huh.

Of course, they’re not. One is a black & white copy and the other is a color copy with a check marked added in the Restricted Delivery “Yes” box. The matching tracking numbers must be of no consequence.9871_a9871_b

It’s been suggested that Osborne lies so much because he’s trying to establish a Joe Isuzu defense to any defamation claim. If his reputation for lying becomes so bad that no one believes him, then what he says can’t hurt anyone else’s reputation.

Nah. Not even Matt Osborne is stupid enough to try that. At least, I don’t think so.

 

Prevarication Du Jour

After weeks of studiously ignoring the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness, Xenophon the Troll is back at Brietbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it.) trying to put a positive spin of Judge Grimm’s letter order that was filed last Friday.BU20140225That’s not exactly what the judge ordered.

ECF 83 extractA show cause order is serious. It’s not a simple “help me understand this” question. It’s an order to appear and explain to the the court why it should not take some action. In other words, The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin now has to explain to the judge why sanctions or some other relief are not appropriate, and the burden of proof is on TDPK.

Another part of the spin from Team Kimberlin is that the judge is weary of all the filings, especially those from Aaron Walker and from me. That may be, but TDPK is the only party facing any discipline from the court. If I were Judge Grimm, I’d be tired of all the extraneous paperwork too. Perhaps he agrees with what I wrote in an reply to one of TDPK’s oppositions:

Finally, Plaintiff says of Defendant Hoge’s Motion for Amended Report and Motion to Strike that “[r]esponding to these is a huge waste of time and judicial resource.” Just so, but not in the sense Plaintiff means. It was Plaintiff who filed the instant frivolous and vexatious lawsuit. It was Plaintiff who botched service of process and filed a misleading report with the Court. It was Plaintiff who did not send timely service to Mr. Hoge. All of the paperwork involved in the instant vexatious lawsuit stems from Plaintiff’s actions. And, yes, the whole exercise has been and continues to be a huge waste of time.

The judge has given TDPK until 7 March to get his act together with a proper amended complaint that complies with the Rules. That means that we defendants should only have to file one more set of motions to dismiss, and then things can begin to move forward. Of course, TDPK is threatening to add more defendants which could cause additional complications.

Stay tuned.

Criswell’s Weather Forecasts

Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it.) has an occasional feature in which Xenophon channels The Amazing Criswell while making predictions. It turns out to be an apt choice because the predictions are usually as spectacularly wrong as the real Criswell’s.

Last weekend’s forecast was for

Clouds of butthurt have limited visibility in the Carroll County, Maryland area. Expect drizzles of stupid all weekend, with sunny skies due to arrive by Monday afternoon.

It turned out that all the butthurt wound up centered on Elkridge, Maryland, which is in Howard County, although things were sunny here in Westminster.

I wonder if Criswell foresees the blizzard of paper about to descend on Bethesda, Maryland?

Quote of the Day

If the campaign is in summer the general must show himself greedy for his share of the sun and the heat, and in winter for the cold and the frost, and in all labours for toil and fatigue. This will help to make him beloved of his followers.

The Amazing Xenophon

Over at Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it.), Xenophon has been trying impress both of the site’s regular readers with the idea that she is this generation’s Amazing Criswell. The real Amazing Criswell was a local TV personality in LA back in the ’50s. What little fame he had in the wider world was from his appearances in the Ed Wood howler, Plan 9 from Outer Space, and on the Jack Parr Show.

Criswell’s bating average on his predictions was someplace south of 0.0005, and that is only slightly better than Xenophon’s, so it’s not unreasonable for her to aspire to be in the same league.

There’s another similarity between Team Kimberlin and Criswell. Criswell originally bought time on TV for infomercials for his vitamin business, and that’s kinda like selling drugs.

Oh, one more thing …

Criswell wore bow ties.

UPDATE—Apparently, Matt Osborne thinks that anyone who disagrees with one of the Amazing Xenophon’s predictions should be added as a defendant to Brett Kimberlin’s frivolous suit against Walker et al.

The Unheroic Xenophon

One of the noms de cyber that members of Team Kimberlin lurk behind is Xenophon. Today, he’s been tweeting about some sort of action that Aaron Walker and I should be covering. I suppose he means a court hearing. As much as I hate to disappoint the Gentle Readers by missing a good story, neither Aaron Walker nor I have a clue what he might be going on about.

Looking at the upcoming court schedule the next event of interest is the Kimberlin v. Kimberlin hearing in Montgomery County Circuit Court next Monday. The next thing that I’m aware of after that is the 11 September probable cause hearing on the peace order violation charges for Bill Schmalfeldt.

One of the tweets goes on about some having suborned perjury from Tetyana Kimberlin. Another rants about how she is a trap “springing shut on Walker and Hoge.” This sounds like typical Kimberlin BS.

If anything noteworthy happens, I’ll pass along what I find out.

Stay tuned
