Strunk v. Electors

Christopher-Earl : Strunk is at it again. He has filed a complaint against the 29 New York members of the electoral college, a NYS Assistant Attorney General and newly-elected NY Senator Gillibrand1 as Plaintiffs. The document itself appears at the end of this article.

Strunk is under a court order that prevents him from filing lawsuits against certain officials without the approval of the court, and so a number of likely defendants were omitted.

The short version is that Strunk claims that Obama committed a crime, a felony, by presenting a fake birth certificate, and that the presidential electors in New York will become accomplices in that felony if they vote for Obama when the EC meets December 17. Strunk asks for a temporary restraining order and a permanent injunction to prevent the electors from carrying out their constitutional duty to participate in the selection of the next president. He hopes for a trial next week.

The whole thing is 211 pages, including quite a bit of repetitive boiler plate and a bunch of conspiracy stuff about the Jesuits. His evidence consists of stuff printed from the Internet, including the Arpaio affidavit and Paul Irey’s report. Strunk intends to have Irey appear as a witness, and is asking for donations to finance that.

Notables:

  1. Starting on Page 30 appears a copy of an email from one Henry Wayland Blake, the subject of which is the Verification of Obama’s birth certificate that was filed in the Mississippi Federal District Court. Mr. Blake accuses attorney Scott Tepper of forging the Verification or collaborating with the forger2. Blake says “I have never testified as a forensic expert.” Well duh. He isn’t a forensic expert.
  2. On page 52 (Exhibit 2), Strunk seems to be confused by the meaning of elector in the 17th Amendment. The section is not clear. Strunk is demanding new elections for Senate.
  3. Did I mention Jesuits? “During the Black Pope’s World War I, the Masonic ally-ruled, Islamic Ottoman Empire would be defeated and dismembered after Jesuit Temporal Coadjutors Sultan Abdul Hamid II and Kaiser Wilhelm II (who had fired anti-Jesuit, Masonic Prince Bismarck) carried out the pope’s Armenian Genocide, murdering nearly two million non-papal Christians via the Grand Orient Lodge’s Masonic ‘Young Turks.’”

Read the complaint:

NOTE OF ISSUE with certifcate of readines for trial in re NOTICE of PETITION INDEX No.: 21948/2012 in re C…


1Strunk alleges that the election of Senator Gillibrand is void. I found his argument starting around page 52 incomprehensible, and not understand why he is objecting.

2Blake just doesn’t understand what’s he’s looking at. Tepper combined several documents into one PDF file. When he did that, the PDF software would have optimized the whole thing, resulting in changes in layers. And any case, the PDF Blake complains about is just an informational copy. The real paper verification was filed physically with the court.

    Skimmed it really quickly. Page 157 is great. He’s giving up his name spelled in all caps, the supposed ‘strawman corporation’ or whatever the heck the true wackos call it.

    I love the email re Tepper and Onaka, especially the last paragraph where he basically states, I’ll give you an affidavit but I don’t want to testify as I have no education nor expertise in the area. But, I know forgery when I see it and I have no problem accusing people of it. LOL

    I’m liking this brief change in tactics for the Birthers. The EC meeting is in 9 days, and will of course be uneventful. Then they’ll have a few weeks to try to use the courts to stop the Congressional vote count. That’ll go off without a hitch. Then I guess they’ll sue to stop the inauguration. Then that’ll happen on the 20th, and it’s back to the same old same old.

    Related to the “Capital Letters” thing…

    I was watching “Blade Trinity” on TV the other day, and I was wondering ‘whatever happened to Wesley Snipes’. I have my answer. He is in prison in Pennsylvania for tax evasion.

    Seems he got conned by convicted tax dodger and pretend religious front organization operator Eddie Ray Kahn into not paying his taxes since the gummint was trying to get ‘WESLEY SNIPES’ to pay taxes and ‘WESLEY SNIPES’ doesn’t exist (according to the silly theory). In the end, Kahn got 20 years and Snipes got 3.

    Apparently Strunk tried to file something in November to stop the certification of the election of Senator Kirsten Gillebrand. Strunk is misreading the constitution and that to vote for a senator you have to meet the same qualifications as a state legislator. IN NY you have to have been a resident for five years. Apparently, his petition was rejected because Judge Schack earlier ordered hum not to file any more crap lawsuits against the officials of the State of NY. He is sticking back in this one only now he wants the November 6th election voided and the governor to call a new election. (See page 77)

    Another crazy theory is that Irey and Henry Blake seem to think that the copy of the LFBC that was filed in MS by the Democratic Party is a new forgery that Alvin Onaka cooked up. If you will remember Begley and Tepper sent a copy of the LFBC to Hawaii and asked for a verification letter that the information contained on the LFBC was indeed what was in the official records. They included a copy of the White House LFBC for completeness and because the copy Orly had filed was illegible.

    Irey who has always only claimed to be an expert in the field of typography now gives “expert” opinions on Adobe software in his affidavit. What buffoons these folks are.

    More on the Gillibrand petition…

    Strunk tried to file this earlier and Judge Schmidt rejected it. The order starts on page 41. Schmidt figured out Strunk was trying to get around Judge Schack’s order by not naming necessary parties, namely the Governor and the NY Board of Elections. Nice try Chris! So now Strunk is stuffing it back into his pile of poop against the Electors. Strunk is just asking to get slapped down again.

    Reality Check December 8, 2012 at 10:39 am #

    Strunk is misreading the 17th Amendment, which says:

    The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State, elected by the people thereof, for six years; and each Senator shall have one vote. The electors in each State shall have the qualifications requisite for electors of the most numerous branch of the State legislatures.

    He thinks this means that the people who vote for a senator have to have the same qualifications as those who run for state legislator. That isn’t what it says. It says the the same people who can vote for state legislators can vote for senators. In reality, that would be every voter in a state.

    He forgot the part about Stalin being at the same Theological Faculty as some confidant of the Pope, (Krikor Bedros Aghajanian, the future Grégoire-Pierre Cardinal Agagianian) proving that what some historians erroneously call the Bolshevik Revolution was actually just a part of the Great Jesuit Conspiracy to Destroy all Powers Enemical to Popery and Making the Whole World subservient to the Holy See.

    They put in a clause that keeps a state from attempting to side step the new amendment by limiting who can vote for a senator and Strunk claims it means the exact opposite. Is his comprehension that bad, or does he just make things up?

    An American businessman, who doesn’t know much about religion, gets an audience with the Pope.

    “Your Holiness, I want to donate one million dollars to the church.”

    “Thank you. It will be used to help spread the word of the Gospel.”

    “Not so fast. You have to do one thing for me.”

    “Well, it depends.”

    “You know that prayer you say in the morning, ‘Give us this day our daily bread’?”

    “Yes, I’m quite familiar with it.”

    “I want you to change it to ‘beer’.”

    “That’s out of the question.”

    “I’ll give you two million dollars.”
    “No.”
    “I’ll give you three million dollars.”
    “No.”
    “I’ll give you four million dollars.”

    “No, the prayer will remain ‘Give us this day our daily bread.’ I will not change it.”

    “Well, how much are you getting from the bread people?”

    Well, he’s wrong on “the electors” (or rather, the Voters) for this past election. The voter registration requirements for NY are:
    Be a U.S. citizen

    Be 18 years old by December 31 of the year in which you register (you must also be 18 years old by the date of the general, primary, or other election in which you want to vote)

    Live at your present address at least 30 days before an election

    Not be in jail or on parole for a felony conviction

    Not claim the right to vote elsewhere

    Funny, don’t see “must live in state for 5 years” as part of that.

    Strunk has filed a Note of Issue, which in New York is a certification that the case is ready for trial. In fact, the defendants haven’t even filed Answers yet. The court docket indicates that the action was filed on November 14. Strunk claims that service was completed on November 30. In New York defendants have 30 days after being served in which to file their Answers, so even if proper service has been accomplished the Answers are not due until the end of December. Strunk also claims that the defendants have waived their right to have him file a Bill of Particulars, which is impossible since they haven’t even entered appearances yet.

    Strunks filed an Order to Show Cause on November 19, which Judge Schmidt refused to sign. Apart from that, there are no future appearances scheduled yet.

    The docket shows that the Court has not accepted Strunk’s Notice of Issue, which is entirely proper because it is very premature.

    It actually isn’t necessary to read all 211 pages since a judge will likely read the summary or just skim the document.
    He just has to read one or two grand lies to strike the entire case down as frivolous.

    Birther attorneys like Strunk and Taitz wrongly believe in a “kitchen sink” type of argument.
    They take every rumor and presumption, throw them all together and then claim to have hundreds of pages of laws Obama has supposedly broken.
    A “more is better” ideology.

    But nothing they have… not one thing… has any legal validity or merit.

    I’d hate to see them make stew.

    Strunk’s pile of taitz weighs in at 221 pages, but a lot of the exhibits include multiple pages of text from other documents scaled down to an unreadable level to fit 4 pages onto a single page. I haven’t counted, but it must come out as 300 or more pages without the shooting down.

    What is it about the birthers that they believe that a bigger pile of manure is a better pile of manure?

    And they believe that the more often a lie is repeated, the more true it becomes?

    And how come they have no ability to discern that delusional idiots like Paul Irey and Henry Wayland Blake, who bring no valid knowledge and no useful experience to the table, have absolutely no persuasive value to a court? When Blake says (I paraphrase): “the defense would shoot me down in flames because I’m talking out of my rear end”, that’s immediately devalues his affidavit – as I understand it, an affidavit is simply a way of saying “this witness, if called, would say this”. If they won’t submit to cross-examination, their affidavit is of no value.

    Another typical crank trait is the idea that a court needs to “refute all my claims, with specificity, in full detail and with complete evidence”.
    Therefore they believe that a dump of 100+ claims results in either the court “yielding” to them by realizing it could never devote the necessary resources to “refute” all claims (which would likely amount to 10-50 pages per claim), or them “winning” in their alternate reality because they can claim “the court did not/could not refute most of my claims, therefore they are true”.

The court has designated it as a “standard” case, which means that it will not be given any preference. ” Based upon this filing date, the court’s Standards and Goals for the processing of this type of case are as follows: the Note of Issue (NOI) should be filed by NOVEMBER 16, 2013. and the case should be resolved by FEBRUARY 17, 2015.” [emphasis in the original]
