We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal conditions are adequately presented in the materials before this court and argument would not aid the decisional process.
US court of Appeals For the 4th District handing Bret Kimberlin another defeat yesterday.
I swung over to Hogewash today and along with the news of the latest blow to the cause of Kimberlin vs the conservative blogging world spotted this Team Kimberlin Post of the Day where Mr. Hoge notes some tweets from Commander Strax Bill Schmalfeldt suggesting that Mr. Hoge has “less than nothing” in terms of legal avenues to pursue against him.
Based on today’s court ruling the “less than nothing” seems to be aptly applied to the ability of the Kimberlin crew’s credibility although for myself I find the fact that the Kimberlin cases are still before the courts years later a bit sad.
While there may be merit in legally finishing off the Kimberlin crowd, who made some real trouble back in the day, to set an example for the next one, given their lack of utility for the left and their legal impotency against the right I can’t get myself all that excited about them.
I’m sure it’s likely the legal trail they have left would put them in jeopardy you would need a person with time, money and the tenacity of an engineer to pursue it to the end and people like Michelle Malkin, Robert Stacy McCain, Lee Stranahan, Aaron Walker, Patrick Frey, Ace of Spades, James O’Keefe, Ali Akbar and Erick Erickson between family and work simply have too much going on to spend precious time finishing off Kimberlin and company.
That’s why they should be worried about Mr. Hoge.
As a retired widower with the children long out of the nest he has the time all of those other lack. As an engineer trained in attention to detail he has the meticulous
malicious nature necessary to research the openings that the mendacity of his foes have exposed and most important of all as someone whose expertise is still sought after and compensated accordingly for it, he , even in retirement, has the funds to jump though the various legal and financial hoops to get to the finish line.
In short Mr. Hoge in addition to the truth, facts, law and right on his side, he the time, the money the patience and the tenacity to follow all of this to the end coupled the temperament to do it with a smile.
Murum aries attigit
Update: Thanks to commentator nobody Atall who spotted the spell checker turning “meticulous” which it should be to “malicious” which it should not. Bill Hoge is not malicious in the least
