Blagojevich trial prosecution opening statements, Prosecution witnesses, Patrick Fitzgerald

The prosecution side of the Blagojevich trial presented opening statements. I was pleased to see references to the earlier corruption that Blagojevich was involved in, not just the selling of the senate seat.

From the Chicago Tribune June 8, 2010.

“Hamilton ticked off a list of some of the witnesses who will testify against Blagojevich, including former chiefs of staff Lon Monk and John Harris. She did not mention fundraiser Antoin “Tony” Rezko, who has been cooperating with government agents since his 2008 conviction.

Hamilton also stressed how jurors will get to hear the alleged corruption unfold for themselves on government wiretaps, including the now infamous phrase where Blagojevich describes his power to appoint a successor as senator to President Obama as “(expletive) golden.” As she spoke, those words, in their entirety, were flashed on the screen.

“He corrupted the office of the governor of the state of Illinois for his own personal benefit,” she concluded. “When you hear him say this senate seat is golden and he’s not giving it up for nothing, you are going to know, that’s how he viewed his power.”

Earlier today, Hamilton began her opening statement with the most emotionally packed of the charges against Blagojevich: the government claim that he tried to shake down the CEO of Children’s Memorial Hospital.

“On the North Side of Chicago,” she began, “there is a hospital called Children’s Memorial Hospital. It is a non-profit hospital that treats kids no matter where they are from or ability to pay…”

Hamilton then explained how Blagojevich committed to helping the hospital with millions of dollars in increased reimbursements to help pay its doctors. “But there was a catch,” she said. “Now that he decided to help the hospital, he wanted the hospital to pay him.”

Blagojevich is charged with demanding tens of thousands of dollars in fundraising help from the CEO of the hospital before he would release the increased reimbursements.

That was just one of a series of illegal shakedowns that started shortly after Blagojevich became governor in 2003 and extended into 2008, the prosecutor alleged.
“He was trying to use his power as governor to get something of personal benefit for himself,” she said.

Time and again, she continued, “when he was supposed to be asking ‘what about the people of the state of Illinois?’ he was asking, ‘what about me?’”

As Hamilton spoke, a chart was projected on a screen in the courtroom with a picture of  fundraisers Antoin “Tony” Rezko, Christopher Kelly and Alonzo “Lon” Monk, Blagojevich’s college roommate and later chief of staff who has pleaded guilty in the case and is expected to testify for prosecutors.

On the other end of the hall from the 25th-floor courtroom where the case is being heard, U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald sat in a different “overflow” courtroom listening to Hamilton’s presentation on an audio hookup. He stared at the ceiling as Hamilton launched into a long laundry list of Blagojevich’s alleged misdeeds.

Proceeding in largely chronological fashion, Hamilton told jurors how Blagojevich, Rezko, Monk and others allegedly schemed to take kickbacks from investment firms seeking state business and squeeze mountains of campaign cash out of contributors in exchange for state action.

Some of the alleged kickbacks to Blagojevich, she said, were funneled to him in the form of $12,000 monthly payments from Rezko through his real estate company to Blagojevich’s wife, Patti, who did no work to earn the money. Patti Blagojevich has not been charged in the case.

Hamilton said the Rezko payments to Patti Blagojevich abruptly ended in May 2004 when another conspirator in the case, political fixer Stuart Levine, was confronted by the FBI.”

Here is why – “British Petroleum’s contribution to the 2008 Elections” – Meanwhile back on MSNBC I just watched the Matt Lauer interview with the USURPER and even Matt said he couldn’t believe that the USURPER hadn’t even talked to the President of BP. Here is the reason why. I googled up “British Petroleum’s contribution to the 2008 Elections” Over one and a half million articles on BP’s contributions to the Demoncraps.

    Another legal question: Obama had to file this affidavit (http://www.azsos.gov/election/Forms/Nomin_Paper_AZ_TRIP.pdf) with the SoS to get on the AZ ballot:

    “…I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that at the time of filing, I am a resident of the county, district or precinct which I propose to represent, and as to all other qualifications, I will be qualified at the time of election to hold the office that I seek, having fulfilled the constitutional and statutory requirements for holding said office.”

    Could criminal charges of fraud be filed based on Obama knowing his parents were not US citizens, and therefore (as a “constitutional scholar”) he knew he was not an NBC, and therefore “not qualified to hold the office?” YES.

    If so, would it be up to the state AG to file such charges?

    No, the AG according to our Constitution has NO AUTHORITY over a Grand Jury. The Grand Jury should DEMAND AG file a criminal complaint against bo & co-conspirators after the Grand Jury INDICTS. If the AG does not prosecutor the CRIMINALS INDICTED then the Grand Jury foreman should file an Original Jurisdiction Motion with SCOTUS.
    ______________________________

    Could anyone else file such charges?

    25 Grand Jurors can indict. Then it is up to the DA to prosecute. If he does not then file a Motion for Original Jurisdiction with SCOTUS.

    Or — Leo — is this exactly the kind of criminal activity you see a citizen’s grand jury addressing?

    Yes, but you will also need to indict bo’s local co-conspirators in your State for the State Courts to have jurisdiction.

    Spill reveals Obama’s lack of executive experience
    By: BYRON YORK
    Chief Political Correspondent
    June 8, 2010

    (AP File)

    In mid-February 2008, fresh from winning a bunch of Super Tuesday primaries, Barack Obama granted an interview to “60 Minutes” correspondent Steve Croft. “When you sit down and you look at [your] resume,” Croft said to Obama, “there’s no executive experience, and in fact, correct if I’m wrong, the only thing that you’ve actually run was the Harvard Law Review.”

    “Well, I’ve run my Senate office, and I’ve run this campaign,” Obama said.

    He forgot to mention that he runs his mouth

    Ginger.
    I am hoping that the trial does last 3 to 4 months.
    If that happens it will touch Obama and Obama’s support
    and appeal will be even smaller by then.
    Couple that with more people speaking out like the patriotic
    Major General and anything is possible.
    That includes, of course, a manufactured crisis.
    Obama will be in no position to pardon Blago.

    The one child kept falling asleep, but I looked at the other children and their eyes were glassed over with boredom (?). They were the only honest people in that dreary speech, Obama delivered like he didn’t believe what he was saying. Uninspiring to say the least, trite with a poor delivery and it is the same old stuff he keeps repeating over and over again.

    Didn’t you just love that man. I noticed what the crowd did just such a spontaneous outpouring of love of country. The Tea Party will do that to you. Thanks for re-posting.

  23. We are going backward, again.

    The only way to prosecute BO for fraud in connection with any statements he made to enter state primaries directly, for example, in AZ, as opposed to entering the primary through the party, for example, in SC; is to establish he lied when he swore under the pains and penalties of perjury, he is a NBC.

    BO knows whether he is a NBC; we don’t. And the senior D’s who swore he was a NBC must know… but wait. We have been unable to find any documentary evidence in the public record that establishes he is a NBC. And if we couldn’t find such documentary evidence he is a NBC, how did they?

    It is precisely because no documentary evidence available in the public record establishes he is a NBC; that the logical pursuit of fraud is aimed at the people who swore to state election officials, he was a NBC. In other words, if none of us can locate evidence in the public record that establishes he is a NBC; then what documentation was the basis for their Certification?

    Remember, in all cases in which citizens have filed complaints of election fraud with their state A’sG, these complaints contain statements that citizens have requested that documentation from these D’s; and that the D’s have refused to provide this documentation.

    This is the beauty of going after the people who swore BO was a NBC, and not going after him. Going after him requires proof he is not a NBC; whereas going after them requires proof, they did not ascertain he was before making the oath. And we have amassed plenty of evidence of this.

    (This stuff is covered quite extensively on my blog. Reading the citizen complaints of election fraud lays this out pretty clearly. Or look at the Roadmap to Fraud in Texas, which begins at the point citizens made the law that all candidates whose names appear on the ballot must be eligible for the job.)

  31. jbjd,

    While I appreciate your research, and it is great, sometimes you come on a little too strong and try to make other people’s research nothing, even though they have spent a great deal of time researching in different areas.

    Take, for example, the lady at myveryownviewpoint, she’s had someone working for her, and she’s been working hard too on this angle. Look, here’s how it is. Let’s say your research goes off really good and proves those suckers didn’t have the documents on BO. But there are others who have researched that can prove valuable also on top of all of that.

    Please, while trying in the process to state your views, respect others. I’m not trying to be rude here. It’s just that some others have tried to do certain things, and you manage to cut them down. Other people have a love of this country also, along with you.

    And I know that you’re passionate about what you have discovered. I understand that myself.

    Also, because I’m not a very sharp person in the ways of legal jargon, it would help if you’d make it a little bit easier to understand. I kind of think that you think if heavy-duty lawyer terms. I mean, I work with this stuff all the time, but if you’re saying to have others do something, just make it easier, please.

    It’s not that we’re idiots. It’s just sometimes the more simple way is much better for mankind. Makes for much less mistakes. I always say “common sense” is the best.

    In the meantime, have a good night! I’m going to eat some Blue Bell Vanilla ice cream, best besides homemade.

    I thought that this is what you’re doing anyway?
    ******************************************

    Yes, this is what the citizen complaints of election fraud are all about. But another poster misdirected people to file criminal complaints against BO, for swearing he is a NBC. These are issues dispensed with nearly a year ago on this blog.

    When I first began posting here, it seems I spent most of my time dispelling myths and lies. What bothered me most – it still does – is to see well-intentioned people misdirected to expend time and energy on extraneous pursuits, when so much else can be done to achieve real results. In other words, I hate seeing people waste their time on losing strategies. Eventually, people here came to know my work and, more importantly, to trust it.

    Well, lately, this blog has sprung up more ‘disinformation’ leaks. I could not care less the motivation of these sources. But I do care that my fellow citizens discern fact from hype, and that whatever choices they ultimately make are based on reality and not on this disinformation.

    And, after several months of civility, again, I am attacked personally here. For example, I am called names; my motives are challenged; and my work is characterized as being unsound without specific reference to what about it is wrong. In fact, my work is sound and has been consistently high quality over time; the laws I cite are real and can be accessed by anyone, as I provide links to my sources; and in the critiques I offer of the work of others, I never attack the person but only the work.

    I apologize in advance if you already discerned this disparity in .tone and substance between comments I post here; and the criticism aimed at me over the past few threads. I spelled out these differences because I found no evidence of such awareness in your latest comments to me.

    ______________________________

    Here is your challenge regarding the Complaints you’ve drafted and I assisted with you in editing in a nutshell jbjd – the 2 corporations – same body just two different heads.

    That simple. The Complaint is solid legally. You and I and many others know that. The problem isn’t the Complaint or the people, the problem is if the R’s are blackmailing the D’s and D’s are blackmailing the R’s. That is a challenge you nor anyone else can overcome. If I were a Genie in a bottle and could grant you this wish, I would, but it is not going to happen.

    Everyone on this thread, writing and lurking, are at different levels in the proverbial rabbit hole. Some are farther along than others. While others are happy where they are and do not wish to journey any further.

    We must accept these good patriots for where they are on their journey, and more importantly, many must accept facts for what they are and stop bullying others.

    Your idea awhile back about rallying on our respective State Capitols was a great idea. Why? Because, we as a people are citizens of our states, NOT the federal gov’t. Our state leadership has been glossed over in this friggin nightmare, but it is they who signed off on the nominee’s and the winners of the 2008 farce. Our Governor’s signed off on the nominee’s and those that won. I am a citizen of Virginia NOT Washington, DC! Therefore, you tried to focus folks but maybe they weren’t ready yet.

    Leo keeps promoting the GJ’s as a vehicle. Well, another great idea, but would it surprise anyone here to know that in 1956 constitutional law was replaced with ‘Rules of Procedure’ which effectively eliminated the citizen’s right to petition redress via the GJ process?

    Both you and Leo are attorneys, right? Why then haven’t either of you educated any of us citizens on the difference b/w citizen ‘Presentments’ and prosecuting attorney ‘Indictments’? The two of you know the difference as do I, but I want to hear it from you.

    Judge Lamberth ruled in July or August of 2009 on the American Grand Jury “Presentment” that his court had neither jurisdiction nor “Constitutional” authority over the “People’s Presentment”. He went onto state his court abided by “Rules of Procedure” Read his Opinion.

    Do either of you have any idea where “Rules of Procedure” are adopted from? Do either of you have any idea why the Federal Government intentionally removed the citizen’s right for redress via the Grand Jury system in the 50’s?

    If you don’t, then go do some research and leave the good folks here alone until you have the answers.

    Working together to remedy this God awful situation we as a people are in must be our first goal, therefore, jbjd, accept the fact that your work is impeccable and solid and at any other time in our history would have been a bombshell, but it’s not now. And Leo, stop telling the good people what to do regarding GJs until you’ve thorougly come to understand the changes to the ENTIRE Grand Jury system in the 50’s. You’ll need to go to Winthrop’s writings on the Articles of War.

    Peace

  37. Many opine here and there that they know the proper path to take in achieving our goals of restoring liberty. I believe no one “knows” for sure future events or proper paths to take in pursuing our goals. Each of us ought to be free from condemnation in pursuing what we believe may be productive. This may include writing blogs, letters, to our representatives, to our friends, assembling, filing lawsuits of any ilk and most importantly prayer. In warfare, commanders utilize many weapons and strategies, some of the most promising of which fail and some hare-brained ones which succeed beyond expectations. I suspect any person who purports to “know” the correct path to take; and I suspect such persons could easily be leading us down a wrong and fruitless path. So let us each encourage one another and allow God to do what only He can do, preserve and protect this Republic founded on His love and with rights He endowed each of us with. I suggest those of you who purport to “know” the only path we should invest in, should back off and regain some humility.

  38. jbjd,

    Your research and knowledge are first class, top shelf. Your integrity and credibility are superior than your inglorious critics.

    The fact that you are comfortable, and not frenetically cut and pasting vain repetitious statements about common law grand jury’s, is obvious.

    Your strong personality is much appreciated.

    jbjd,

    “This is the beauty of going after the people who swore BO was a NBC, and not going after him. Going after him requires proof he is not a NBC; whereas going after them requires proof…”

    NONSENSE!

    There is plenty of proof bo is NOT a NBC. Your insistence that we Patriots “NOT GO AFTER” bo is suspicious. Of course, we are going after bo for all the crimes committed by his campaign because he is THE PRINCIPAL CONSPIRATOR in the CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY. bo is the man who trained ACORN agents to commit IDENTITY THEFT & VOTER FRAUD.

    If you are truly a Patriot, jbjd, why would you try to convince Patriots not to prosecute bo? Why do you continue to present false info regarding the law?

    Please address Carlyle’s debunking of your arguments:

    =====================

    I don’t know if this thread is dead yet, but I wanted to throw in my 2¢ worth here.

    That is absolutely correct. Without the specific law, even without a specific regulation – she will do it.

    It must be remembered that just because it is not in the law, does not necessarily make it illegal! Is there a law that says she can’t do it?

    Even if jbjd is right and the law seems to say that you must put the party’s nominations on the ballot – there is a larger, more sweeping, law – “upholding the constitution”.

    Orly will do the right thing. She may get sued, and may ultimately lose. If nothing else she will use the constitutional argument. She may be told to put them on the ballot anyway, but she will not be fined or imprisoned.

    AND – it will make a hell of a public spectacle!
    “The court of public opinion”!

    Go ORLY ! ! ! ! !

    What State are you licensed to practice law in, JBJD? Please provide us with your license info so that we can have a Patriot in your State investigate you.

  41. jbjd — We’re not going backwards. Just asking lots of questions to try to understand the bigger picture. I do want to address this further, but I’m too tired now.

    But I also want to say I love the idea of protesting at state capitols. Gives lots more people the chance to be involved than a march on DC. And it lets our local “leaders” know they’re not off the hook either for allowing this fraud and usurpation.

    Goodnight good people!

    Amen! Starla!

  47. Leo – I appreciate and value your passion and fortitude, but I take serious offense to your statement that I am posting “False Information”!!!

    I am not. And you know better. Have you read Winthrop’s Articles of War? Do you have any idea what has transpired in your beloved legal system b/w 1865 and the 50’s?

    If so, then by all means educate us citizens on the differences b/w then and now as it relates to Grand Jury’s. By all means, educate us citizens on the differences b/w Presentments and Indictments. By all means educate us citizens on the difference b/w Rules of Procedure AND Constitutional law.

    I’ll be waiting for your education Leo. The most interesting thing about the attorneys that have weighed in on this is that they are not willing to educate us. Instead, b/c they have Esq behind their names, somehow that gives them mightier authority. Well, guess what, we morons have gone outside of the BAR and have actually asked others to educate us. Why? B/c every time we asked you to do it we recv’d no response.

    So educate everyone Leo. This is my challenge to you. Tell all of us how our judicial system is exactly the same as it was when our FF, most of which were attorneys, laid out our judiciary.

    And then tell all of us what happened in 1865 that changed all of that! Your wisdom is wanted and valued and most appreciated. So tell us what happened!

    Peace and Goodnight!

    jbjd — We’re not going backwards. Just asking lots of questions to try to understand the bigger picture. I do want to address this further, but I’m too tired now.

    But I also want to say I love the idea of protesting at state capitols. Gives lots more people the chance to be involved than a march on DC. And it lets our local “leaders” know they’re not off the hook either for allowing this fraud and usurpation.
    ***************************************************
    We are going backwards in the sense that, these questions were answers long ago; and I assumed by now, everyone knew the ‘settled’ answers. Especially on this blog.

    I ‘insist’ that anyone downloading the complaint I drafted, read it first and understand what s/he is signing. (Recall, each complaint requires the name and street address of the citizen, since it is the status of citizen of that state that entitles the filer to the services of the AG.) Over 100 complaints have been filed in TX; but so far, AG Abbott has not even acknowledged these complaints. I proposed, the local tea party groups could be marching to the state house, in Austin, instead of DC. Those who have filed complaints can hold them up and ask, ‘What are you doing about these complaints?’ Do you suppose the press would cover such a grass roots assembly? I do!

    Richard, thank you so very much for acknowledging and appreciating the work.

  49. Regarding Elections official in Hawaii who claims there is no long form:

  50. When a state official is charged with intentionally violating the law; or is sued for violating someone’s rights; the AG defends that official in court. If judgment is for the Plaintiff; money damages come from the state Treasury. If the official is also named in an individual capacity, the judgment comes from her.

    We have today, Darren Huff, E3 Navy, who has been brought up on charges for simply videotaping Commander Fitzpatrick on 1 April 2010 for conducting a precedent, Rules of Procedure, lawful arrest.

    We have retired Commander Fitzpatrick and Sgt Harrington who filed briefs and letters to every single state Election College member stating Obama was ineligible only to be ignored. They also filed their rather strongly worded briefs to AG’s and Electoral Boards and to Dick Cheney himself only to be ignored.

    These two men then went on an filed a Complaint of Treason which is what they are battling for now in Madisonville, Tennessee.

    These two men have fought successfully to release the Pendleton 8, including Hutchins, whose charges have been dropped by the Military but sits today in solitary confinement.

    No Starla. There are many in the military who are fighting for our Country, including Commander Kerchner, Commander Cravin, Cammander Fitzpatrick, Sgt. Harrington, E3 Huff and thousands more.

    Let me know if you want their blogsite addresses b/c they’ve been blogging on all of this for years now. You are simply not aware of them.

    Their are many good Patriots fighting for our country and upholding their oaths to the Constitution today. Many!!!

    ====================

    Yeah, but guess what!? DD is ineligible!
    How’s that for irony.

  55. CC, who said DD is ineligible? On what basis? Cites, please.

  56. oooh, I can see Leo furiously typing away on his keyboard ready to slam me.

    while jbjd ignores me. it’s her favorite thing to do these days.

    what’s fun about all of this, at least for me, is that I know neither one of you have a clue as to what I’m talking about, which is really sad.

    why? b/c, you two are the brightest of the brightest. you’ve journeyed outside of your comfort zones to deal with ‘people’. this is something few attorney’s do, that is unless there is money in it for them. the two of you aren’t about money, although you’d like to make a living on the degree’s you’ve earned. no, the two of you are about what’s right. morally and ethically, which is why i respect both of you.

    sure, you piss me off or you aggravate the hell out of me, but you are solid people. love for your country comes first no matter what.

    therefore, it’s easy to tolerate the two of you and it’s easy to understand where the two of you are coming from…love for your homeland. that’s a beautiful thing. one in which i’ve always honored and will continue to respect.

    with that, i want to make it clear to both of you that you have one side of the facts.

    jbjd, you do not understand the fact that if the R A’sG in the states were to hold a Grand Jury on your complaint that they would be horizontalized the following day, or their reputations would be ruined, or they’d be impeached on some lame offense. they can’t move on the complaint! trust me, they can’t. if it was any other time in history you’d have a 50/50 shot, but in this time of history it is 0. no R or D is going to jeaopordize life and family for a friggin usurper. honor does not weigh in when lives are on the line.

    leo, you are a ferocious advocate of the Grand Jury process but you only know half of this story. There is another half you know nothing about UNLESS you were directed or on your own, were lead to this other half. based on your writings for months now, i feel very confident you do not have a clue as to what i am talking about.

    a few of us only learned four days ago what this other half is and where it lies. not to be a tease, b/c I’m not, but we’ve only learned within the last 72 hours a truth that is incomprehensible even to you my dear and ferocious friend.

    this truth explains why admiralty flags fly in our federal chambers, why indictments have usurped presentments, and why Lt Col Lakin has the best possible chance to bust this entire conspiracy wide open.

    you’ll learn this other half soon enough, from extremely reliable sources and when you do I pray you’ll be as ferocious about correcting these wrongs as you are about fighting for GJs now.

    Peace and really goodnight now.

  57. CC, never mind. I looked it up. According to this (and several other articles I scanned), Dunn is eligible.

    If you are talking about Damon Dunn – you can find info about his ineligible status to be placed on a ballot, and the fact that he committed perjury on his application. Damon Dunn is being sued by Pamela Barnett for his illegal frauds and crimes currently in CA. If you go to Dr. Orly Taitz, Esq’s web site you can see articles and videos about his crimes and frauds.

    Also Damon Dunn has been found to have signatures of people’s names listed as his supporter’s in his petition to have his name placed on the ballot, who have been publicly interviewed and they publicly say they do not know who he is, and they publicly say they never signed and placed their signatures on his election petition to have his name added to the CA SOS ballot.

    You can go here for more info on why Damon Dunn is legally ineligible to be a CA SOS, and the crimes and frauds this man has committed and must be held accountable for by the people in the state of CA, and the other 49 states!

    Hi, Helen – I read Judge Royce Lamberth’s 7/09 order re. the presentments of the Super American Grand Jury, as you suggested. The two points that I took notice of were (1) grand jury has to be convened BY THE COURT, for the district in which it sits and jurors have to be selected at random from a fair cross section of the district in which they are convened , and (2) although presentments are constitutionally permitted, there is no authority under the Rules of Criminal Procedure for the court to accept them…. So, to me this is the reason that all of the previous citizens grand jury attempts have gone nowhere. Is this your position?

    You allude to the fact that you have learned of something within the last several days that will enlighten our lawyers here. Would this, perchance, have anything to do with Restore America Plan? Just curious.

    BTW, you wrote very graciously to our lawyers, and I know you, also, care very much about our country!

  61. Taitz has also said – and a pending civil suit by a Taitz backer reiterates the claim – that Dunn’s candidacy violated the requirement that a candidate not be registered with a different party for at least 12 months before filing to run. A district attorney’s spokeswoman said Taitz’s complaint was “unsubstantiated” and the case dropped.

    http://www.ocregister.com/articles/dunn-249260-taitz-voter.html?pic=2

    I would not go to Orly’s site to learn about Dunn’s eligibility but to a ‘neutral’ site. (In the past, this newspaper has run articles favorable to Orly.)

  63. jbjd,

    “Taitz has also said – and a pending civil suit by a Taitz backer reiterates the claim – that Dunn’s candidacy violated the requirement that a candidate not be registered with a different party for at least 12 months before filing to run. A district attorney’s spokeswoman said Taitz’s complaint was “unsubstantiated” and the case dropped.”

    # # # #

    This part of your statement is true:
    “Dunn’s candidacy violated the requirement that a candidate not be registered with a different party for at least 12 months before filing to run.”

    However, you aren’t reading the true news and the correct info. The case with Pamela Barnett has been continued until after the election.

    This is what Orly’s web site says about this case today:

    “Update on Barnett v Dunn 34-2010-00077415, Superior Court of CA
    Posted on | June 8, 2010 | 1 Comment

    Today there was a second hearing in Barnett v Dunn et al. This is the case of Registered Republican, Desert Storm Army officer, Businesswoman, wife and mother Pamela Barnett against Damon Dunn, current sec of state Democrat Debra Bowen and atty gen Democrat Jerry Brown, who is running for Governor of CA. Brian T. Hildreth represented Damon Dunn, Assitant Attorney General of CA Tony O’Brien represented Sec of State Debra Bowen and Atty General Jerry Brown. The case will be continued after the election. Barnett is seeking an order not to certify Dunn’s votes due to fraud.”

    See the video with the proof of Damon Dunn’s FRAUD called:

    “Nomination FRAUD – Damon DUNN – Forged Signatures”

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6WB3HfkfjmA&feature=player_embedded

  64. Starla, evidently I did not make myself clear. Of course, anyone can bring a civil suit; Orly has filed several. This time, Orly got her supporter to file a civil suit. However, the story I provided mentions a criminal complaint against Dunn, which Orly tried to get the DA to pursue before she went the civil route. However, the DA concluded, Orly’s charges were unsubstantiated.

  65. jbjd,

    Did you catch the post from soundoff2 on the ocregister ? I believe it was the third one… Gotta go back and see it. It caught me off guard and i could not stop laughing.

    Thank you for providing the information that you were talking about another suit.

  67. Re: Richard // June 9, 2010 at 1:37 am

    Okay, Richard you call that kind of mean disgusting comment “funny” and you could not stop laughing? What if someone said that about you, Richard?
    THEN would you be laughing, and not be able to stop laughing, if someone said that sharple mean spirited comment about not your deeds or words, but what you look like ?

    Spare me, Richard, your sense of humor that I find really strangely symptomatic of……fill in the sentence.

  68. Starla, this is the same substantive case. Orly brought her information – the only information she has – to the DA, asking him or her to initiate a criminal complaint. If the DA had gone forward then, the case caption would have read, State of CA v. Dunn. Because this would be a criminal case. Orly would have been the complaining witness. But the DA found Orly’s allegations against Dunn to be unsubstantiated by the evidence Orly presented. So, Orly decided to file a civil suit, instead, using the same evidence the DA said did not substantiate her allegations. Only, she did not name herself the Plaintiff. No; this time, she made her Supporter the Plaintiff.

    So, there’s only one suit, that is, the civil lawsuit.

  69. Tim Adams, former Chief Elections Clerk in Honolulu during the campaign and elections, says THERE IS NO LONG FORM BIRTH CERTIFICATE FOR OBAMA BECAUSE HE WAS NOT BORN IN HAWAII.
    He says his superiors openly admitted that there was absolutely no documentation for Obama.
    http://giveusliberty1776.blogspot.com/2010/06/blog-post_8553.html
    Further he says absentee voting records for members of the foreign service were stolen as they are political appointees, to determine who they voted for.

    =============================

    I happen to agree with this very strongly. I am becoming more and more convinced that the System is fatally broken. We can do all the correct and legal things – Grand Juries, Criminal Lawsuits, Civil Lawsuits, Protests, Marches, Tea Parties, etc. – but it is all folly. NOBODY will even hear our pleas, let alone weight them for merit.

    I think individual fear and quaking is a factor. But I think the bigger fear is general violence. We have a National policy (as do most Western nations) of ‘not negotiating with terrorists’. But that is just poppycock and posturing. Look what Muslims have been able to achieve with terror and threats of violence – especially in Europe. Most of our favorite European nations are totally paralyzed regarding dealing with Muslims.

    We are seeing a similar situation with respect to Race and Racism in America right now. If ANYTHING is done to touch the Obamamessiah, legal or not, there will be instant and widespread and extremely devastating race riots in every city – particularly in some of the largest.

    I don’t mean this to be a debate on stereotyping or broadbrushing either Moslems or Blacks – only to point out that there are sufficient “radical elements” within either group to “make a difference”.

    We like to talk of a constitutional crisis, and national security, and the horrible things Zero does every day – “why can’t THEY see that?”. The point is – they can. But the PTB have determined that even with all those negatives, it is better than a civil war. They know that the Constitutionalists are harmless and will not riot. They equally know full well the the Obots will.

    I think it is now loud and clear and pretty simple. Preserve the peace at all costs. To hell with any other consideration.

    Now now! I sometimes think that we have seen everything there is to see and analyzed everything – and have passed judgment.

    Aren’t you just a bit curious about IMPORTANT NEW INFORMATION FRESH AND NEVER-BEFORE-REVEALED from the last 72 hours?

    I know I am. Waiting with bated breath.

  76. Greetings!

    First, let me express my sincere gratitude for keeping this conversation on the facts rather than making it personal. I have no bone to pick with anyone. Everyone here and across the blogosphere is trying to do everything in their power to wake up the people to our corrupt federal system and to peacefully remove the criminals from power.

    Personally, although quite difficult at times, stand shoulder to shoulder with the fine patriots I’ve come to know and learn from over the last two years.

    As many of you CW posters know, I, Helen Tansey, formerly d2i, have been journeying down this damned rabbit hole for three years now. Their are two reasons I continue my journey – 1. a soul filled need to know the truth no matter how difficult or heartbreaking it may be about my country and 2. because of the community of patriots who continue to fight for our constitution and her people no matter the color of ones skin, culture or religious heritage.

    Leo, the admiralty flags that stand in our courtrooms are there for a reason. This is not RAP stuff this is military info.

    Indulge me and allow me the opportunity to quickly inform folks here what I, and other military personnel, have learned over the course of this last week. I will be posting a lengthier and more substantive post on all of this later today, but for now, allow me to explain what we’ve learned.

    In 1861, following the Civil War, our military adopted Winthrop’s “Articles of War” which established “Rules of Procedure.” The adoption of the “Rules of Procedure” allowed the military judicial system to remain under these rules rather than constitutional laws.

    Fast forward to 1946, yes Leo I said 1956 and had the year wrong, but in 1946 a committee appointed by the President revisited the American Jurisprudence system which included the Grand Jury system…

    real quick – up until 1946 citizens had redress to hold their governments and leaders accountable through what is known as Presentments. So “Presentments” by a Grand Jury to a judicial authority were the people’s constitutional rights to hold governmental officials accountable.

    What happened in 1946 by this Presidential committee was to usurp the “Presentment = the Peoples” process and replaced it with “Rules of Procedure”. This very act eliminated “standing” and other safeguards the constitution provided.

    Presentments were effectively replaced with “Indictments” that is a state or federal criminal action against the People.

    There are very few Grand Jury’s left in the US that still accept Presentments but they are not the norm. Monroe county Tennessee is one such animal. Commander Fitzpatrick, as many of you know, has spent the last year attempting to get his original Complaint of Treason heard and only hits walls.

    He was arrested yesterday through new indictments handed down by the GJ on the following charges:

    1. TCA 39-16-510: Retaliation of past action.
    2. TCA 39-17-309: Civil Rights intimidation.

    When Leo states, which he has done numerous times, that TN is as corrupt if not more so than Chicago, the man is telling you the truth. It is.

    Now, what does this all mean? From the moment the new “Rules of Procedure” were adopted and signed by the President, the American judicial system based on Constitutional law was usurped by the Military system now using “Rules of Procedure.”

    What does this mean? Simply, since the adoption of the Rules of Procedure the US and her citizens have been under martial law.

    Take a minute and listen to Chalice’s show last night – former Sgt. Tim Harrington provides a short summary of this around the 59 minute mark. Please listen to what he is saying.
    http://www.blogtalkradio.com/patriotsheartnetwork/2010/06/09/the-militarys-perspective-a-town-hall-meeting

    I have spent the last eight weeks researching, conducting personal interviews, talking to former prosecutors and so much more to understand why 400 lawsuits have failed due to “standing”, why the AGJ “Presentments” failed, why the AG Complaints have gone no where and now witnessing how the military may very well be ready to destroy an honorable and decent man’s career b/c the usurper refuses to demonstrate his NB citizenship.

    I hope this information is helpful to you. To learn more please stop by The T-Room later today to learn even more.

    Peace to everyone,
    Helen
