Mr. BIll's Forgery Follies, Part Duex

Mr. Bill’s forgery claims don’t seem to be getting any real world traction.

Forgered Letter

Mr. Bill’s story has more holes than all the cheese in Switzerland.


Mr. Bill's Forgery Follies

Mr. Bill has claimed that the letter that W. J. J. Hoge says he received is a forgery.

We understand that Brett was in the courtroom during Mr. Bill’s contempt hearing. It’s a shame that Brett’s being unable to testify in Maryland courts because of his perjury conviction prevented Mr. Bill from using him as an expert witness on forgery.

PO Forgery

One of those signatures is from the version of the petition that Mr. Bill tweeted. The other is from the version posted by Krendler.


Tick, Tock

We have no idea what the actual outcome of Mr. Bill’s contempt hearing might be, but this page from the Original Kimberlin Unmasked (used without permission) seemed to have a certain resonance with the current situation.



Mr. Bill Makes Contact

Let’s pretend that neither a blog comment nor an email resulting from a pingback enabled link is a contact for the purpose of a Maryland peace order. A letter is.



We look forward to finding out the results of the contempt hearing this Friday.

Brett has been trying—and failing—at a career in music since he got out of prison the first time back in the ‘90s.

Who Do You Believe?

Brett has been screwing up service of process left and right in all of his recent lawfare. It appears that he neglected to serve Stacy McCain with the second amended complaint in his federal racketeering lawsuit within the time allowed, but is trying to have McCain found in default anyway.

McCain is pointing out that Brett doesn’t even have forged evidence to support that claim.


Pro Tip: Never try to outcrazy Stacy McCain.


Brett's Filing Follies

Brett is making some interesting unforced errors in his federal racketeering lawsuit.



Nothing in Particular

Brett has filed his massive state and federal lawsuits complaining of a vast conspiracy to do him harm, but when pressed about who did what, when they did it, and how he was damaged, he never seems to be able to come up with any evidence.

Nothing in Particular

Three Hots and a Cot for Mr. Bill?

What a Difference a Year Makes

Actually, a bit more than a year. Back in late 2013, Mr. Bill was very confident about being able to defeat W. J. J. Hoge’s petition for an extension of the first peace order. He was certain that Hoge was going to jail for perjury.




Mr. Bill was wrong.

Fast forward to 2015, and as the contempt hearing for violation of the second peace order nears, Mr. Bill has shut up.


We doubt that Mr. Bill is headed to jail, unless he does something massively stupid in front of the judge, but there is likely to be some consequence for his actions.

Brett's Jihad Against Aaron Walker

Brett claims that those of us who tell the truth about him are really spinning false narratives. The truth is, Brett is a liar and the source all the falsity, lies, and bullshit associated with him and his lawfare.

Brett's Jihad


Does Brett Measure Up? No. 6

One of the defendants in Brett’s racketeering lawsuit is a journalist named Mandy Nagy. Ms. Nagy suffered a stroke last year and is slowly recovering. Because of her enormous medical bills, she will probably be judgment proof for the rest of her life. Even if he were to win the suit against her, he’d never receive a dime. Since Ms. Nagy is not able to participate in her own defense, Brett is seek to have her mother substituted as defendant on Ms. Nagy’s behalf.


This is a marvelous example of the kind of legal terrorism Brett engages in.


Brett Sez We Cheated

Brett has filed a letter with the judge in his racketeering lawsuit asking to reopen the case with respect to Lynn Thomas. Mrs. Thomas was the individual that he named as Kimberlin Unmasked in that case. Although he reached a settlement with here and dismissed her fro the case, he wants to punish her because of the existence of this website.

Mrs. Thomas has nothing to do with the current version of Kimberlin Unmasked.

All of the original material found here and on the companion Twitter account has been lifted from the Internet. (Google and The Wayback Machine are very useful.)

New Site

Brett should rein in his petty meanness before it caused him more trouble than he can imagine.


Mr. Bill's Professionalism

Mr. Bill seems to believe that the Internet has not memory. Although he’s taken down some his abusive postings (such as the image of Mrs Hoge), many are still lurking on the Web (such as the YouTube animation targeting Mrs. Walker).


Mr. Bill whines that families should be off limits. Apparently, he means only his.


Brett Wants A Do-Over

Brett is a loser, and he doesn’t like it.

He thought he had worked out a great deal to shut down the satirical criticism coming from Kimberlin Unmasked, but he didn’t figure all the angles. The Original Kimberlin Unmasked site is gone, but we’ve taken its place. The Original @kimberlinunmask Twitter account was closed, but we grabbed the handle before Brett could. Now, he’s trying to punish Lynn Thomas, one of the people he claims was part of the Original Kimberlin Unmasked for his lack of foresight.

ECF 248

This will not work out well for Brett.


Brett's Hoplophobia?

One of the donation-raising scams that Brett has tried over the past couple of years was The now defunct website tried to piggyback on the to-do following the Newtown shootings. It featured a petition drive, led by Mr. Bill of all people, to outlaw advertising of guns to children. (Note: One must be 18 to buy a rifle or shotgun in the U. S.; one must be 21 to acquire a handgun.)

Brett hasn’t always been anti-gun. He owned a small arsenal back in his dope dealing days—even though at the time he was banned from possessing firearms because of his prior felony conviction for perjury.



Lawfare v. Lawyers ... and Others

Brett should have picked on someone his own size. We suppose his problem was finding someone of small enough stature.

LvL Page_2

Patterico, Aaron Walker, Ali Akbar, W. J. J. Hoge, (non-party) Ace, and Stacy McCain aren’t the only defendants pushing back twice as hard.

And Now For Something Exactly The Same ...

Ho hum. He’s done it again.

Exactly the Same

When danger reared its ugly head,
He bravely turned his tail and fled.


Mr. Bill Haz Sad ...

Mr. Bill haz sad because W. J. J. Hoge is taking his time filing his oppositions to Mr. Bill’s motions related to his upcoming show cause hearing for contempt. Just because Mr. Bill has a history of quickly filing poorly thought out court papers doesn’t mean that Hoge has to do so too.

Being Careful

Yes. Those of us who Mr. Bill calls “Lickspittles” adore Hoge’s megalomania that expresses itself in carefully reasoned court filings that are actually grounded in the facts and the law. We’re looking forward to seeing what he files in opposition to Mr. Bill’s motions. We assume that Hoge is taking his time in order to make sure that he’s getting his arguments correct. Also, we suspect that he has a life in the real world that makes demands on his time.


Brett Needs a Lawyer

Mr. Bill isn’t the only member of Team Kimberlin who’s lawfare is falling on hard times. Brett lost his state defamation suit against Walker, et al., and he’s now well on his way to losing his federal racketeering lawsuit. It’s one thing to lose a lawsuit. It’s something else to lose and be sanctioned—and the remaining defendants in the racketeering suit all seem to be looking for sanctions against Brett. Given that he has forged a summons and altered evidence, sanctions are a real possibility.

Needs a Lawyer

Neal Rauhauser’s Theory of Lawfare didn’t allow for defendants who punch back twice as hard. Or harder.


Recycling Oedipal Bill

Here’s an Original Kimberlin Unmasked graphic with the talk balloons refilled with tweets from Mr. Bill’s @weltschmerz2015 account that he posted on January 17th. Once again, he’s attempting to try his case (a contempt show cause hearing relating to Hoge’s peace order) on the Internet, while Hoge appears be quietly waiting for the court to hear the matter. Taking history as our guide, we bet that Hoge has the better strategy.

Why Is Brett Suing Pro Se?

Now that Brett has lost his state Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. lawsuit and is well on the way to losing his federal racketeering case, we wonder if he’s stopped to count the cost of his lawfare. He spent over a year suing the people he believed were Kimberlin Unmasked, settling that case—and then seeing this website appear.

Why ProSe

Hoge used to ask how Brett thought his brass knuckles reputation management was working. From our point of view, it’s failing. Miserably.


Obeying Court Orders

Bill Schmalfeldt may not be getting all his advice from Acme Legal. He seems to be making some of it up as he goes along. One wrong idea he has is that he can get away with having disobeyed Hoge’s peace order if he can find a way to have it vacated. That’s not the way court orders work.

A group of civil rights protestors were busted for marching in violation of an injunction. They appealed all the way to the Supreme Court. And. Lost.

Obeying Court Orders

We’re getting better with this google searching for fact checking. We found the Walker v. Birmingham case on Google Scholar in under 5 minutes.

Oh, No! Mr. Bill! (4)

SNL’s Mr. Bill has Sluggo and Mr. Hands. Our Mr. Bill has only himself to cause his own punishment. His karma is catching up to him.

Oh, No4


What's the Password?

The circumstantial evidence suggests that whoever sent the “threatening” comment that Mr. Bill is complaining about was a registered user at schmalfeldt dot org. We’re willing to bet that William Hoge IV is not one.



Oh, No! Mr. Bill! (3)

Oh, No!3


More Investigative Journalism

Say, this fact checking part of investigative journalism can be fun, and it’s a great way to sharpen your google-fu. It took one of us almost ten minutes of searching online to find a copy of a motion to dismiss that Mr. Bill filed in the Hoge v. Schmalfeldt copyright lawsuit last year. He included a copy of Hoge’s no further contact letter that followed up after the initial peace order. So Mr. Bill has provided unimpeachable documentary evidence that he was on notice and knew that he was on notice.

Brett's Twilight

As we piece together the timeline of Brett’s lawfare over the past few years, we’ve found some interesting coincidences. For example, essentially all of the songs initially recorded by Brett’s band Op-Critical were hard rock protest songs. One of the outliers was a song called “Twilight Angel” that he tried to promote for the soundtrack of one of the Twilight movies. It was just as Brett started trying to promote that song that he took to the courts to sue Seth Allen claiming that Allen had defamed him by calling him a pedophile. (BTW, Seth Allen never did.)



Brett Isn't Charlie

As near as we can tell, none of the members of Team Kimberlin have actually come out and condemned the terrorist attack on the Charlie Hebdo offices last week. There have been a few posts about things that were happening, but nothing the we can find speaking out against the Islamofascist attack on free expression. Here’s a sampling …



Some Investigative Journalism

We noticed that Mr. Bill is broadcasting the theory that W. J. J. Hoge’s petition for contempt must fail because it was submitted on the wrong form. We decided to fact check that claim, so we got in touch with the Clerk of the Circuit Court in Carroll County. Actually, we didn’t speak with Mr. Sealing himself but with a very helpful lady in his office.

She informed us that if Mr. Hoge had used the wrong form, the Clerk’s office would have returned it to him. She said the preprinted form he used was the correct one for a petition filed with the Circuit Court. We asked about form number CC-DC-PO-007, Mr. Bill’s preferred form, and were told that it was a District Court form not used by the Circuit Court.

We realize that this is from an actual source within the Clerk’s office working during normal business hours and not the special Christmas Eve staff, but we are inclined to give more credence to this information than in Mr. Bill’s theorizing.

Mr. Bill & Acme Legal

Mr. Bill thinks he’s found a loophole that will save him from the consequences of disobeying a court order. If he really believes that, we have a tunnel between Folkestone and Coquelles available for a nominal sum.

Mr. Bill and Acme

Hoge has said that he didn’t seek incarceration in his petition. It seems that he simply wants the court to compel Mr. Bill to obey its order. The court has the inherent power to enforce its own orders, and we presume that he judge will find an appropriate means of coercion.

We doubt that Brett has any interest in real justice whether through music or any other means.


Brett & Mohammed

It’s interesting that Brett latched on to Aaron Walker’s participation in Everyone Draw Mohammed just after the Charlie Hebdo offices were firebombed back in 2011.

More Defendants Reply

Brett has tried to get information about his enemies into court documents because they are public records that can be published (unless they are sealed). Just think of the acres of paperwork about Brett now available because he chose to vexatiously sue a couple of dozen defendants in his federal racketeering lawsuit.

Mr. Bill Gets Ready

Mr. Bill said that he was looking for legal counsel, but now he is saying that he will mail his written answer to the contempt show cause order on Friday. It looks like he is stuck defending himself pro se.

Hoge has petitioned the court that issued the latest peace order against Mr. Bill to hold him in contempt because he contacted Hoge using a WordPress pingback.

Bill Gets Ready

We doubt that will be much screaming in Westminster, MD, over the weekend. Given what Hoge seems to have learned from an investigation conducted by Johnny Atsign and from his actually reading the pingback instructions from WordPress, we suspect that derisive laughter is more likely.

Does Brett Know Who He's Suing?

Does he even care? Or is it really random, unfocused terrorism just like the Speedway Bombings?

Who is Brett Suing

Brett was unable to shutdown Kimberlin Unmasked with his lawfare. He looks to be headed to a similar disaster in his bumbling attempt to identify “Ace.” His suit names a blog called “Ace of Spades.” The actual name of the blog we think he wanted to target is “Ace of Spades HQ,” and we think the anonymous blogger he wanted to target is called “Ace.” With no more amendments allowed to his complaint, he stuck suing what he sued originally, a possibly non-existent entity.

Brett has put the “Doh!” in John Doe.

Mr. Bill's Latin Lesson

Mr. Bill continues to simultaneously beclown himself and dig himself a deeper legal hole with respect to W. J. J. Hoge’s peace order. We take Hoge’s writing, “Murum aries attigit,” to mean that he is done with granting Mr. Bill any more quarter. Hoge’s use of Latin is sufficient for us to believe that he actually studied it in school—which means he has probably read Caesar and understands the context of that reference.

Bill Meets Caesar

The Atuatuci agreed to surrender to Caesar and then reneged on the agreement, attacking him during the night following the surrender negotiations. Caesar’s legions killed 4,000 of them that night. The next day, the ram hit the gates, the city was sacked, and the population killed or sold into slavery.
