Kelsie Kimberlin’s quest for an order of protection against a man who has stalked her family for more than three years will move to a Maryland circuit court after a Rockville district court judge found that William Hoge’s pattern of harassment had not taken place in the last thirty days and therefore did not meet the standard in the the state’s harassment law, which his honor seems to have confused with “Grace’s Law.”

That legislation, which was passed in April 2013, is specifically worded to deal with cases of cyberbullying and electronic harassment, but does not require that events take place within a 30-day limit.

Judge Zuberi B. Williams also found that Hoge had perjured himself during the hearing when he denied leaving comments under an August, 2013 article about Kelsie’s budding music career only to have proof of his actions presented to the court. “You just lied under oath,” Williams reportedly said to Hoge on the witness stand before turning to his attorney, Patrick Ostronic. “How am I supposed to find your client credible?”

On his LinkedIn profile, Judge Williams’s motto reads “fairness is the glue that holds our legal system together,” but he didn’t seem particularly concerned with being fair to a teenage girl whose life has been destroyed by obsessive cyberstalkers.

In his day job, Patrick Ostronic is in-house council for Tamir Biotechnology Inc., a penny stock firm currently peddling a drug for genital warts and HPV whose ability to sell shares was temporarily revoked last year for failure to file stock registration and quarterly statements in a timely fashion.

His presence in the courtroom indicates that Dan Bongino, a major figure in the ‘Groundswell’ lobbying group which propelled the Benghazi and IRS stories in the US House of Representatives and for whom Ostronic has been an important fundraiser in the past, may be personally invested in the defense of Hoge’s stalking and harassment of Kelsie and her family.

Through their past fundraising activities, Ostronic and Bongino are also linked to Kirby Delauter, the Frederick County, MD city council member who famously threatened to sue local news reporter Bethany Rodgers for using his name in a story about parking problems. Delauter has since apologized for not understanding how a free press works.

According to witnesses who attended the hearing, Hoge appeared disheveled and tired as Kelsie recounted her horror at being the object of his fascination. Under examination, it was clear to observers that he was not ‘on his game.’

The Kimberlin family is still in a position to file criminal charges against Hoge for perjury. The trial transcript will appear during the Kimberlin family’s appeal of today’s ruling, which will be heard in a circuit court that has become all too familiar with the perjurious litigation shenanigans of Hoge and his mentor, Aaron Walker.

Walker tried to attend the hearing today, but was excluded from the courtroom as a potential witness. He nonetheless spent the day tweeting libelous defenses of Hoge’s lecherous creeping on Kelsie, now 15, from the courthouse lobby, to the delight of the obsessives that he has cultivated for more than three years.

Note that one of Walker’s retweeters there is convicted con artist Paul Lemmen, a well-known fabricator who enjoys an inexplicable credibility with Mr. Hoge.

Although he seems to be taking a subdued victory lap today, Hoge has filed frivolous litigation in his own district court many times, appealing to his local circuit court whenever he loses. That shoe is merely on the other foot this time, as Kelsie’s father is expected to file an appeal for a de novo hearing (new trial) on Monday and possibly criminal charges as well.

According to sources close to the family, the filing will include subpoenas to WordPress and Twitter to obtain the identities of “Paul Krendler” and other noxious anonymous trolls who have participated in Hoge’s sickening smears.

BU will stay on top of this story.

 

UPDATE 1: Crassus here: A few people have commented that this story is somehow not accurate or that it defames Hoge etc. These, of course, are the commenters who live and breathe Hoge on Hoge’s blog. So, a few of them have come here to complain, and are doing so on Hoge’s behalf. Hoge, of course, is too much of a coward to come here and make the case for himself. Until he does he doesn’t get anything here that is demanded from elsewhere, up to and including his bunker in Westminster Maryland. He can’t comment or make a post on his blog and then make demands of this site to bend to his will or do anything he wants. If he wants to query this site then there is a proper procedure for doing that, and when he follows those rules then we will think about examining his complaint. Until then he gets no special treatment here.

Here is the issue. The article claimed that the Judge did not find Hoge credible due to the tweet Hoge made after telling the judge that he didn’t post on the gazette article. The article above is therefore, accurate, in that this is what happened in court and was reported as such in this article.

It doesn’t matter that after Hoge got home he suddenly became cognizant of events or went back and found some tweet made by someone else, and now claims he is innocent or whatever. Yes, many criminals once they have had a chance to think about their alibi, are suddenly innocent when they get their story straight later on. But under direct examination they sputter around like Hoge did on the stand.

Hoge is infamous for his memory of details and errata, yet that day on the stand the Judge called him out because Hoge suddenly couldn’t remember what he had done or had not done, and even had his attorney call him out and question what was up with that, and Hoge’s final response was a stuttering “I don’t really recall” which made him look even less credible.

So, as far as defamation and suing and all of that, no, the story stands because it accurately reports what happened in the court that day with Hoge. The judge found him not credible, and also found that he appeared to lie while being questioned, and that is what was reported in this article. If Hoge wants to sue, he can sue the court or the judge. If he wants to demand a retraction, then he can take it up with the court who felt he wasn’t credible. So, for now this story stands. If court transcripts, which have been ordered, show a different outcome than the one reported above, then that will be reported as well. We report you decide.

As for Hoge suing, go ahead and write your funny papers and file them, we will report on that as well. In other words Hoge, you don’t scare us with your bullshit one little bit. We are not going to roll over like others you have attacked or stalked or went after. We will meet you will everything we have, and I guarantee you that you won’t like the outcome one little bit. In other words, come at us bro, we welcome your bullshit, matter of fact, we can’t wait for it, so hurry up and git er done.

UPDATE 16 May 2016 – An audio clip of the hearing reinforces our reporting. You can listen to it here.

    Hoge has lied so often, he doesn’t even know he’s doing it any more. I’m glad Brett had the proof that Hoge is a liar, and I hope that — in addition to filing an application for statement of charges under Grace’s law — he will apply for a perjury charge as well. The lying has to stop. Hoge has admonished his followers to leave families alone in the past. It lasts a few days, then he ignores the comments and the next thing you know families are back in the mix.

    • The porn lawyer and right wing dirtbag-for-hire known as Poophat is really, really made at me for talking about it.

      • Laura

        LOL at how Popehat won’t talk about this stuff on his blog full of vicious snobs that are just like him. I’ve seen him praised by other snobs that either have never made the effort to research him online or willfully ignore his viciousness and snobbery. One of his lapdogs (ClarkHat) was crowing over an article a while back that said that cops really can’t be murdered because they’re evil to begin with. I confronted him on this and was screamed at repeatedly before he blocked me (this was on Twitter). He willfully refused to believe even the possibility of evil cops having family members and/or friends that aren’t involved in their evil acts. This is the same vicious mentality shown towards Brett Kimberlin. These snobs pride themselves on not even considering that people can truly change, etc. At the same time they have a scary hate of cops, US government, etc. while crowing about how all in government are out to get all of us all the time. They revel in paranoia and don’t want to make the effort to look at people in certain groups (like cops) on a case by case basis. They also love their snobbery about Libertarians who they claim are the only ones who are working to better things, etc., which is a lie. They then willfully ignore stuff done by certain Libertarians (Ron Paul’s racism is an example) that they will scream about if others NOT in THEIR group do. The viciousness I’ve seen from this bunch on Twitter alone is disgusting along with their hypocrisy.

    Once Krendler or one of the other trolls that fancy themselves important and relevant (cough! Howardearl Cough!) have their identities revealed, they will be as impotent as ever. Their only power is in anonymity. Then watch their fellow Lemmengs turn their backs.

    Heads up re Aaron Walker–word has it that he is an FBI informant who has used his Mohammed blog as a honey pot to supply a list of Muslim hating extremists to the feds. Remember when he was telling people on his Mohammed blog to use their own names when submitting cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed. And he did this while using a fake name himself. Why? Because he was feeding all that information to the feds. Aaron Walker is another Hal Turner. So all you fools out there who are talking to Aaron Worthing/Walker on back channel about what you are doing, who you are trolling etc need to know that it is all going right into the federal fusion centers.

    • William A. Ferguson

      Evidence, or fuck off!

      • Aaron Walker Informant?

        It has been suggested several times in the past that Walker has been providing information to handlers. If you look at the clues, it does boggle the mind how Walker has been able to “get away” with so much for so long.

        I hear those days are closing fast though, for all of them.

    What I want to know is why Hoge is not attending to his cancer stricken wife instead of psychologically molesting a teenage girl? Is his escape from the ravages of cancer to fantasize about teen sex? That is a sad commentary on Mr. Hoge, a well known citizen up here in Westminster. Can you imagine the conversation last night at dinner between Hoge and his wife. “John, please, I am in my last days, I don’t think I am going to make it. Please give me some peace. Please pay attention to me. Get off that computer. Be attentive to my needs. I have given my life to you and you are tormenting me in the twilight of my life with courts, and violent criminals, and your insane theories. You have me living in fear, as you have for years because you created enemies and then brought that home to me. I don’t want enemies. I want peace. I want to get well. And if I don’t get well, at least I want to live my final days without hearing one word about Bill, Brett, Aaron, Robert or Courts. John, I am dying and to be honest, the stress you put me through the past several years is what caused my cancer. I kept my emotions inside. I wondered why you are focusing on external things that have no bearing on our lives when you have me, the woman who is your wife. I will make you a deal, I will do my best to live as long as God allows me, but you have to promise me to walk away from all the chaos you have created. Give me peace in my final days. You owe that to me, John. I am your wife.”

  • Bill Schmalfeldt

    Hoge’s having a hissy this morning. Seems he’s going to sue you if you don’t retract, apologize, wash his son’s hair, give him a sponge bath (get up in there good!) and wash his car. Golly. It’s almost like he doesn’t understand what the judge said about retweeting being just as bad as tweeting the original thought. Silly, Silly Hoggy!

    • William A. Ferguson

      Yeah, I saw that too.

      He “demands”.

      Yeah? And I demand a month in Fiji, an unlimited supply of Singapore Slings all expenses paid.

      Not gonna happen, I think.

  • michaelharris

    I do not have a horse in the race but it looks like Lee Stranahan sent the tweet so where is the perjury?

    • Pablo

      It’s imaginary, like the stalking, and they damned well know it. The defamation? That’s real.

      • michaelharris

        Pablo, I made a statement that a retweet from Hoge is not a tweet from Hoge. Do you agree that the tweet was from Lee S? Simple question. I don’t care about legal conclusions like defamation or stalking unless there is a final court order. Did Brett ever have any final court orders vs him? Simple question. Take our political glasses off and look at facts.

        • William A. Ferguson

          The judge said it was the same as, Michael.

        • Pablo

          Yes, the tweet was from Lee. Therefore, the perjury is imaginary.

          As for Brett, he’s convicted of quite a number of things and a big fat loser in the lawfare game.

          • breitbartunmasked

            Funny how Hoge couldn’t remember if he posted or not, but when he got home his memory suddenly improved.

        • Westminster Winds

          Hoge needs to take care of his wife, pay attention to her and forget everything else in his life. His wife is dying, for God’s sake. That should focus his attention like a laser beam. Why is he bringing chaos into that home? Has he no sense of decency?

          • Bill Schmalfeldt

            Fact of the matter is, we have no idea whether or not Hoge’s wife even has a strained back muscle from gardening, or Stage IVB Osteosarcoma metastasized to her boobs. Hoge is such a fucking liar, he could be making the whole thing up for “tip jar” purposes. In fact, in the absence of evidence to the contrary, I “demand” evidence. These fuckwads thik it’s just fine to make fun of my wife who is actually dying from cachexia (probably scleroderma-related). I’ve provided proof in pictures. And they MOCK THE PICTURES. I say this with Christian humility and human anger. They should all be dragged into the street and beaten to near death, nursed back to full health, then rebeaten. Repeat as necessary. Fuck them and their pious “Ooooh, we are PRAYING for YOU and your WIFE, Mr. Hoge! And the Cabin Boy’s Wife is a truck stop whore alcoholic. Ha ha ha ha!” Play nice? Fuck that. I’m done.

            Up here, people are talking about John Hoge, and it ain’t good. They say he is neglecting his wife and people are angry about it.

          • Westminster Winds

            People up here are talking about doing an intervention on Hoge to get him to pay attention to his wife and forget all this craziness. But some people are saying that he has guns and is not afraid to use them if cornered. So we are trying to figure out if it is worth it or not to intervene to help his wife while risking their lives. Our main concern is whether he has lost touch with reality, as many people now believe. We may ask a deputy to accompany us if that is legal. Does anyone know?
