Bill Schmalfeldt’s Poor Judgment

Posted on | January 1, 2014 | 36 Comments

Kimberlin Unmasked called attention to a bizarre recent post in which Bill Schmalfeldt indulged in a violent revenge fantasy:

If two shitheads like Aaron Walker and John Hoge did what they did to Tetyana Kimberlin, they would have been visited at their homes by the Schmalfeldt brothers. It would have been one on one, with fists, and it would not be pretty. The three brothers would have stood by while I gave the shithead the beating of his life. Then, we would go to the other shithead’s house and repeat, lather, rinse and repeat.

That snippet inspired me to investigate further, and I discovered this weird interpretation of events by Schmalfeldt (no link):

To come between a man and his wife, to work SO HARD to entice the wife into leaving her husband and run off with a PIZZA BOY! To EXCUSE his theft of a car. To PAY HER LEGAL FEES as long as she tells the lies they wanted her to tell. I thank God that she came to her senses.  . . .
You fucked with a man’s family, boys. You did it, and there’s no denying it. Tonya spilled the beans. And when you couldn’t have HER lie for you, you just went ahead and lied on your own.

It would appear that Bill Schmalfeldt is relying on Brett Kimberlin’s version of events for this counterfactual narrative, which can be disproven quite easily. No one had to “entice” Tetyana Kimberlin to “run off with a PIZZA BOY” — why all-caps, Bill? — because she did that before Aaron Walker or John Hoge ever met her. You can read this from the court documents filed by Brett Kimberlin, Tetyana Kimberlin and Tetyana’s boyfriend Jay Elliott:

B. Kimberlin v. Elliot Petition for Peace Order 7.9.13 (OCR) by AaronWorthing

Elliot v. B. Kimberlin Petition for Peace Order 7.9.13 (OCR) by AaronWorthing

T. Kimberlin v. B. Kimberlin Petition for Protective Order 7.9.13 (OCR) by AaronWorthing

All of these documents were filed by the parties themselves, without any influence by Walker, Hoge or anyone else.

Schmalfeldt’s belief in Brett Kimberlin’s assertions to the contrary — which are the burden of the million-dollar Maryland lawsuit Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. — evidences a foolish trust in Brett Kimberlin. And as to Schmalfeldt’s claim that Tetyana “spilled the beans,” what does Schmalfeldt mean by this? Does he mean (as I suspect) that he is relying on hearsay from Brett Kimberlin?

Does Bill Schmalfeldt even bother to paying attention to facts to determine the sequence of events? Look here:

  1. Brett Kimberlin v. Jay Elliot — filed July 6.
  2. Jay Elliott v. Brett Kimberlin — filed July 7.
  3. Tetyana Kimberlin v. Brett Kimberlin — filed July 7.

In other words, Brett Kimberlin himself started this, by filing a petition for a peace order against Tetyana’s boyfriend. It was Brett Kimberlin who decided to make his wife’s estrangement a matter of public record. Jay and Tetyana then responded the next day to Brett’s court action, and all of this took place July 6-7.

As to what happened after that, I suppose Bill Schmalfeldt is relying on the false allegations in Brett Kimberlin’s lawsuit and/or misrepresentations of Tetyana’s words and actions that Brett makes during “Team Kimberlin” conversations with Schmalfeldt.

Here’s a tiny little clue for Bill Schmalfeldt: I take notes.

Your ridiculous threats and phony expressions of chivalrous umbrage on behalf of Tetyana Kimberlin — a person whom you were quite willing to defame as mentally ill in July — neither deceive me nor intimidate me, Bill Schmalfeldt, and your poor judgment in trusting Brett Kimberlin is further proof that you are an utter fool.

As if further proof were needed . . .

    The real world scenario went like this:

    6 July—Brett Kimberlin files a peace order petition and criminal charges against Jay Elliot.

    7 July—Jay Elliot and Tetyana Kimberlin file for a peace order and a protective order against Brett Kimberlin.

    8 July—A reader contacts me after seeing the cases on the Maryland Judiciary Case Search website.

    9 July—Aaron Walker and I attend the hearing. Tetyana Kimberlin led off in handcuff. Aaron Walker and I have no opportunity to met her.

    11 July—Tetyana Kimberlin approaches me in a restaurant, our first contact.

    Nothing in that supports Team Kimberlin’s fantasy about who started the legal wrangling between Brett Kimberlin and his wife.

    Love that = “phony expressions of chivalrous umbrage.” Spot on. His attempts at chivalry fall flat not only because of his previous defamation of Mrs. K., but because he routinely uses terms like “cunt,” “twat,” “whore,” etc., to describe either women he doesn’t like or the wives of men he doesn’t like. One of his ex-wives is a favorite target, and it doesn’t seem to have occurred to him that the reason most of his kids don’t talk to him (by his own admission) is because of the way he treats their mother, plus his public pronouncements that he doesn’t believe one of his kids is his. Nice guy, huh?

    He is also a liar. Part of his shtick is to publish outrageous factual assertions on the flimsiest of evidence, assuming the worst possible conclusions. When he is called on his lies, he whines and asks that they be pointed out. When people do, he just doubles down. Case in point: to date, he has never corrected his statement that you never left Maryland and, consequently, defrauded those who donated to help you move.

    Another part of the faux man-of-honor routine is his constant butting in on Twitter conversations and blog posts, claiming that he is defending his “honor.” This occurs even when he is not mentioned by name. His behavior is the equivalent of a 5 year old on a playground – adults who actually matured beyond the oedipal stage let most of that stuff roll off their backs. He is the internet equivalent of a voyeur, a cyberspace peeping Tom. I hope you guys can block him from your lives in this new year.

    Again, he exposes himself and blames others for his own actions. You “meddled” in his plan to regain control of her, convince her she could never get away, and to lie to the court and get away with it, and punish her. Help her obtain legal representation? To an abuser, that’s homewrecking. She shouldn’t have any voice or any choice. He should get his way.

    There is also the astonishing lack of self-awareness. It apparently never occurs to Bill to ask, “How will this make me look? What sort of impression of myself am I conveying?”

    Over and over, he does things that make him look like an asshole, and never seems to recognize that this is his own fault. Instead, he always blames his failures on others.

    Agnosonosia of some kind. He can’t even preserve his own interests, let alone BKs. I enjoy thinking of Kimberlin having anxiety about how best to manage his error prone protégé.

    Well, Billy-boy and his bros would be foolish to make such a threat against me. It would be criminal trespass with intent to maim or murder. That is covered by the Castle Doctrine in many states. It is self-defense in ALL 50 (57 according to democrats) states to use the force necessary. 4 vs 1 is easily justifiable for use of deadly force to repel.

    Taken with Bill Bobblehead Schmalfeldt’s complete ignorance of the facts, as RS demonstrated, coupled with Castle Doctrine and Self-Defense laws just further illustrates his complete stupidity.

    That pizza boy, he probably made sure the damn thing was loaded with extra cheese, and probably charged her the price of a small one topping pizza for a large supreme. Oh, and then of course, he laid the sausage on the poor naive woman. You have to feel bad for Kimberlin, who only had a small sausage link with which to fill her appetite..

    You know, I enjoy seeing BS mocked as much as everyone else here, but on a serious note I see someone mentally ill that should be referred to the proper local authorities for watchful monitoring of his obsessive behavior. Right now, it is just carefully worded threats, but as he loses his mental capacities, he could express himself violently. I see this guy as having the potential to walk into an all-you-can-eat buffet restaurant and start shooting up the place (or maybe bombing – isn’t there someone in the mix who has that experience?). The left has been hoping and praying for their Holy Grail – a mass casualty incident that can be tied to the right. You can hear their collective sigh of disappointment whenever there has been an incident and it is proven to not be connected to the right.(although before anything is confirmed they always find a way to put that initial speculation out there). The next best thing for them is someone who did this because he was “bullied” by the right. Maybe not quite the Holy Grail that the left is hoping for, but good enough until the one comes along that brings them out in the streets to dance in joy.

    I think to “cover your ass”, a referral should be made to local authorities in his area. Sorry about the long post – had a lot to say.

    Bill isn’t much of a physical threat. He doesn’t walk very well. Despite his bragging of making “almost 6 figures” when he was a govt stooge, he doesn’t appear to have saved any so it’s doubtful he has the resources to pay someone to do the evil deeds he fantasizes about. No, he sits at his keyboard making tough guy statements that he could have probably never backed up. (Go ask him about his bar fights. He claims he was such a bad ass he was the last one left standing in them, but then also claimed to not have been in a fight since he was 15.) He lies to make himself seem…what’s the word?…”more” than he ever was or ever could be. He’s tales of physical beatings and about how everyone was afraid of him are nothing but a shallow attempt to convince everyone else that his fantasies about himself are true. About the only fear he ever inspired are that he would eat your lunch.
