Election 2020 Defamation Dismissed In Philly; Total Victory For Greg, Leah And Trump

Election 2020 Defamation Dismissed In Philly; Total Victory For Greg, Leah And Trump–The Philadelphia defamation case against President Trump and others has been dismissed with prejudice by Common Pleas Court Judge Michael E. Erdos.

This means it can’t be refiled.

Complete credit for the victory goes to Delaware County poll watchers Leah Hoopes of Chadds Ford and Gregory Stenstrom of Glen Mills who were co-defendants and who represented themselves.

The high-powered legal team representing The Donald seemed to be just going through the motions when we watched.

Trump, Ms. Hoopes, Stenstrom and Rudy Giuliani were accused of defaming former Delaware County, Pa. Voting Machine Warehouse supervisor James Savage saying he helped rig the 2020 election giving Pennsylvania’s electors — and the presidency — to Joe Biden.

Ms. Hoopes and Stenstrom make their claims in their book The Parallel Election.

Ms. Hoopes and Stenstrom used a truth defense. Truth is an absolute defense in defamation cases although this requires the defendants to prove their case.

J. Conor Corcoran represented Savage.

Corcoran faces a hearing before the disciplinary board of the state Supreme Court on an unrelated matter.

Ms. Hoopes and Stenstrom continue to seek sanctions against Corcoran for actions during their lawsuit.

One factor that raises a hmmm is that the hearing was dropped after Ms. Hoopes and Stenstrom requested subpoenas for Delaware County District Attorney Jack Stollsteimer, former US Attorney for Eastern Pennsylvania William McSwain; then Pennsylvania Attorney General (now Governor) Josh Shapiro; and communications between Delaware County and Factcheck.org.

Stollsteimer issued a statement May 4 2022 — and read into the record by Delaware County Council, May 18, 2022 — declaring the claims by Ms. Hoopes and Stenstrom to be unfounded. He said their evidence was altered.

You would think Savage would have been the one wanting Stollsteimer’s testimony.

Really? Altered evidence?

Savage would have had a slam dunk.

Wonder why it was the defendants that wanted Stollsteimer on the stand.

There’s a similar defamation case in Delaware County where Savage is joined by Delco Election Director James Allen.

Maybe Jack can testify there.

Assuming that one continues of course.

We hear that Duane Morris LLP — Delco’s law firm — has pulled its attorneys.

In another matter, we are hearing reports of a seriously disgusting stunt pulled by Delco’s county detectives and its Children and Youth Services people.

Stay tuned.

Corcoran Wants To Quit Delco Defam Case

Corcoran Wants To Quit Delco Defam Case — J. Conor Corcoran, the embattled attorney representing James Savage in defamation cases relating to the 2020 election, wants out.

He has filed a motion to withdraw as counsel in the case before Philadelphia Common Pleas Court Judge Michael E. Erdos, and proposed a 90-day stay in proceedings.

Being sued are Delaware County poll watchers Leah Hoopes of Chadds Ford and Gregory Stenstrom of Glen Mills; President Donald Trump and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

Savage is the former Delaware County, Pa. Voting Machine Warehouse supervisor whom the defendants allege was instrumental in rigging Delco’s votes against Trump in 2020 hence giving Pennsylvania’s electoral votes to Joe Biden.

Corcoran cites “irreconcilable differences,” with his client, “personal problems,” and that he is closing his law practice as to why he wants to quit.

Stenstrom and Ms. Hoopes filed a motion, Feb. 14, seeking sanctions against Corcoran saying that Corcoran made provably false claims before the Court in written filings and oral testimony during hearings in June and November.

Corcoran is also facing a hearing before the disciplinary board of the state Supreme Court on an unrelated matter regarding professional misconduct.

Stenstrom and Ms. Hoopes are objecting to Corcoran’s request to quit and postpone the case, and are asking to be allowed to present their pending Motion for Summary Judgement in their favor.

Stenstrom and Ms. Hoopes have also filed a request in Delaware County Common Pleas Court to dismiss a defamation suit Corcoran filed there on behalf of Savage and Delco Election Director James Allen.

Corcoran wants to quit that too and have attorney John Rooney take his place.

Among the reasons that Stenstrom and Ms. Hoopes give for dismissal is that Corcoran had not filed the required Praecipe to Reinstate for 173 days and had not completed proper service in the 470 days since their original Writ of
Summons.

They further say that Corcoran filed frivolous, conjectural complaints without any material facts, and failed to meet a majority of the most basic procedural requirements.

Most significantly, they say the county has unlawfully destroyed or is unlawfully withholding documents necessary for their defense.

Stenstrom and Ms. Hoopes are the authors of  The Parallel Election. Co-defendants in Delco include Newsmax, The Federalist and Margot Cleveland.

Delco Defamation Defendants Want To Subpoena Stollsteimer

Delco Defamation Defendants Want To Subpoena Stollsteimer

This is getting interesting.

Greg Stenstrom of Glen Mills and Leah Hoopes of Chadds Ford want to subpoena Delaware County District Attorney Jack Stollsteimer in the defamation case against them in Philadelphia Common Pleas Court, and plaintiff James Savage is fighting this.

Savage is the former Delaware County, Pa. Voting Machine Warehouse supervisor. He is accused by Stenstrom, Ms. Hoopes and others of being instrumental in rigging Delco’s votes against Trump in 2020 hence giving Pennsylvania’s electoral votes to Joe Biden.

Ms. Hoopes and Stenstrom make the allegations in their book The Parallel Election.

Savage, represented by J. Conor Corcoran, is also suing President Donald J. Trump and Rudy Giuliani.

Why is Savage fighting the subpoena?

You would think it would only help him. Stollsteimer, after all, is a fellow Democrat who publicly declared that he investigated the claims and that they were unfounded.

Certainly makes one go hmmmm that Savage would be concerned about what a subpoena would reveal.

The defendants also want to subpoena former US Attorney for Eastern Pennsylvania William McSwain who said that he turned over all materials that they had presented to him to then Pennsylvania Attorney General (now Governor) Josh Shapiro on Nov. 9, 2020, as directed by then US Attorney General William Barr.

Shaprio did not investigate.

Shapiro denies receiving the material.

The defendants are asking that he get a subpoena too.

Ms. Hoopes and Stentrom also want a subpoena to compel Delaware County to disgorge all communications between its officials, solicitors and Savage with Factcheck.org, a partisan Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) affiliated with the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania.

The defendants, who are representing themselves, are making a truth defense. Truth is an absolute defense in all defamation lawsuits albeit for it to work they are going to have basically prove their claims.

Why is the case being heard in Philly when it concerns Delco?

Pennsylvania laws allows the plaintiffs to basically bring their case in the county of their choosing.

2020 Vote Fraud Now Issue In Pennsylvania Attorney General Race

2020 Vote Fraud Now Issue In Pennsylvania Attorney General Race — State Rep. Craig Williams has made the 2020 Election an issue in this year’s Pennsylvania Attorney General race.

Williams, of Glen Mills, Delaware County, represents the 160th District, and is a former federal prosecutor.

He is running to be the Republican nominee for Pennsylvania’s A.G. against ex-Delaware County D.A. Kat Copeland and York County District Attorney Dave Sunday. The primary election is April 23.

Ms. Copeland had served in the Delaware County district attorney’s office before joining the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania in 2011.

She was appointed Delaware County District Attorney in 2018 to fill the remainder of Jack Whelan’s term after he was elected judge. She lost the 2019 election to Jack Stollsteimer and returned to her federal job. The guy in charge was now Bill McSwain. She became chief of the Criminal Division.

Williams X-posted a challenge to her, Saturday, Jan. 20, regarding an allegation her ex-boss made that then U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr squashed an investigation into vote fraud in the 2020 election, which would have been on Ms. Copeland’s watch.

This is the post:

@McSwainPA said he had evidence of election fraud that DOJ shut down. AG Bill Barr said that was not true. The President called McSwain a coward. Kat Copeland was Criminal Chief under McSwain, responsible for prosecuting election fraud. She owes us the truth.

Is Craig hoping to put Kat on the spot? Is this just a gambit to either make her look like a conspiracy nut or to drive a rift between her and McSwain?

Ms. Copeland should chime in, regardless. Huge numbers of Americans think our election system has become rigged and the numbers are growing.

And with reason.

University of Michigan professor and well-regarded cyber-security expert J. Alex Halderman, just this Friday, demonstrated to U.S. District Judge Amy Totenberg in Atlanta the ease at which Dominion voting machines could be hacked and tallies changed.

We’ll, also, note that McSwain never recanted claim regarding Barr nor is he the only one who has made one.

And if Craig and Kat can be persuaded to recognize that distrust in our elections is becoming a serious matter, maybe they can find time to ask why Delaware County is fighting so hard to keep its correspondence with ballot-printer Fort Orange Press a secret.

Maybe it’s just petty bureaucrats trying to show they are big deals. We certainly hope that all that it is.

Stenstrom And Leah Will Use Truth Defense In Election Defamation Suit

Stenstrom And Leah Will Use Truth Defense In Election Defamation Suit –Philadelphia Common Pleas Court Judge Michael E. Erdos is considering a request by President Donald Trump’s attorneys for a stay in the defamation suit filed against him by former Delaware County, Pa. Voting Machine Warehouse supervisor James Savage.

Trump has implied that Savage was involved in rigging the 2020 election.

The hearing was, today, Nov. 17, in Courtroom 650 in City Hall.

Attorney Mike Madaio said the stay was needed to protect the President’s 5th Amendment rights in the criminal trials he is facing.

Granting the stay would likely mean separating the case from his co-defendants former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, and Delaware County poll watchers Greg Stenstrom and Leah Hoopes, which would mean two trials.

It had been incorrectly reported that the President was dropped from the case. Judge Erdos did rule, though, that things Trump said about the Nov. 25, 2020 legislative hearing in Gettysburg, along with a tweet, couldn’t be used against him due to presidential immunity.

Granted that is much of the case.

Concerning Giuliani, Erdos ruled that because he failed respond to discovery requests from plaintiff attorney Conor Corcoran, he would be restricted in his challenges to evidence Corcoran introduces.

The most interesting part of the hearing was Stenstrom’s statement that he would rely on a truth defense. Truth is an absolute defense in defamation matters albeit it is one of the few things that it is up to the defendant to prove.

Strenstrom also read his work history which included a cyber intelligence command in the Navy, and projects with the FBI, CIA and local law enforcement. He noted that he was instrumental in forcing the resignations of a Camden, N.J. mayor and Philadelphia School Superintendent Ann Ackerman.

Stenstrom did ask for the case to be summarily dismissed because Corcoran failed to supply adequate material evidence in suit, which is a requirement in Pennsylvania law.

Stenstrom said the only material evidence presented by Corcoran was a photograph that appeared to show him sleeping during ballot counting. If Stenstrom had fallen asleep it would have meant he could have missed some of the things he said didn’t happen.

Stenstrom said Corcoran refused to provide a time and place as to when the photo was taken, and that the photo had been scrubbed of meta-data providing the information. Most damningly for Corcoran, he displayed the identification and lanyard from the photo and pointedly noted that it was from the 2022 election.

Why would Corcoran imply it was from 2020?

Feel free to surmise.

Ms. Hoopes was chastised at the start of the trial by the judge for a video that appeared on the web in which she called Corcoran some nasty names. Erdos said that even though she and Stenstrom are representing themselves they will be held to the same standards of attorneys with regard to decorum.

At the appropriate moment, she gave a blistering response noting several things Corcoran falsely said about her including calling her a terrorist and attacking her religion.

She said she had never been arrested, unlike Savage, and had never had a shady business partner, unlike Savage, who owned property with former State Rep. Margo Davidson.

Erdos agreed that Corcoran crossed the line several times and gave him the same warning he gave Ms. Hoopes.

Ms. Hoopes said Savage’s ex-wife is willing to testify to rebut Leslie Lebowitz an expert witness for Savage. Ms. Lebowitz was a key witness in a defamation suit against Trump.

She refuted Savage’s claims that they caused his heart attack by making him fearful and stressed by pointing out that he was seen protesting in Virginia outside the home of Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito.

The trail is expected before summer, although whether The Donald will be a participant remains a question.

Paxton Confirms Vote Fraud Cost Trump Election

Paxton Confirms Vote Fraud Cost Trump Election — Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton who weathered a vicious lawfare attack which ended with his Sept. 16 acquittal in an impeachment trial before his state’s Senate gave a 46-minute interview with Tucker Carlson that was posted yesterday, Sept. 20.

Paxton confirms vote fraud is real and widespread. He says Donald Trump would have lost Texas in 2020 if steps taken by his office to squelch the plan. He says Trump lost Georgia because what was stopped in Texas was not stopped there.

Paxton also says that the Republican establishment is every bit as corrupt as the Democrat.

He noted that the Bush family and Karl Rove were instrumental in the impeachment effort against him. Paxton shockingly says the Democrats basically control the Texas dispute the GOP’s overwhelming majority because the 65 Democrats vote as a body and can almost always find 11 Rs to buy off. He says that’s how Dade Phelan became Texas House Speaker.

Paxton hinted that he is considering primarying U.S. Senator John Cornyn, who he says is basically a tool of the globalists and the Bushes.

Eastman Disbarment Trial Gets Vote Fraud Evidence Into Court

Eastman Disbarment Trial Gets Vote Fraud Evidence Into Court — The California Bar is trying to disbar Trump attorney John Eastman and his trial has gone on for four weeks.

Eastman is an attorney who had been dean of Chapman University School of Law. His distinguished career began with clerking for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.

The disbarment attempt is to due to his defense of President Trump’s claims that massive vote fraud cost him the 2020 election.

Well, the Bar rested its case last week and Eastman is getting his bats.

Rachel Alexander of the Star News Network reported how former Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman testified on Eastman’s behalf and has revealed that:

  • Wisconsin Speaker of the House Robin Vos, a Republican, who tasked Gableman with the investigation did not want Gableman to make a serious effort.
  • Officials from the Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) ignored the law requiring bipartisan observers present when collecting votes from nursing homes and other assisted living facilities, to the point where a sheriff referred these election officials for criminal charges.
  • Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s Center for Tech & Civic Life (CTCL) provided five of Wisconsin’s largest cities, gave $8.8 million employment contracts that gave CTCL access to vote information not readily available to citizens. The contracts included financial penalties for failure to comply.
  • Ballot drop boxes were illegally placed and used for the casting of illegal ballots.
  • That there was evidence of coordination in Wisconsin between election officials and Democratic Party officials
  • There were 7 million people registered to vote in the Wisconsin but only 4.5 million were eligible.

Eastman also testified. He said he believed electronic voting machines in Colorado’s Mesa County flipped the vote from Trump to Biden in the 2020 election.

Eastman noted that machines flipped the vote in Michigan’s Antrim County but this was treated merely as a mistake. He noted thought that since the log files had been deleted this couldn’t be shown definitively.

Eastman said that in Pennsylvania the government gave advance warning to Democratic Party officials in violation of the law.

He also said that in Pennsylvania, along with Georgia, bipartisan teams of observers were prohibited from going into nursing homes, which led to massive, one-sided turnout from those nursing homes.

He said that then Attorney General Bill Barr, who claimed there was no fraud in the election, did “precious little in the way of investigations that would give credibility to such a statement”

The trial is expected to continue next week and is being livestreamed here.

Gettysburg Hearing Can’t Be Used Against Trump

Gettysburg Hearing Can’t Be Used Against Trump (Corrected Version) — Philadelphia Common Pleas Court Judge Michael Erdos, July 31, ruled that a tweet and comments President Trump made regarding a legislative hearing on the election held in Gettysburg, Nov. 25, 2020 can’t be used against him from a defamation suit filed by former Delaware County, Pa. Voting Machine Warehouse supervisor James Savage.

Judge Erdos said Trump claim that elections in Delaware County were rigged was protected by presidential immunity.

Remaining as defendants are Rudy Giuliani, Jen Ellis and Delco poll watchers Leah Hoopes and Greg Stenstrom.

Why is this case being held in Philly? Savage was employed in and lived in Delaware County when the alleged defamation occurred, after all, and Mrs. Hoopes and Stenstrom remain Delco residents.

Gettysburg Hearing Can't Be Used Against Trump (Corrected Version)

Pennsylvania law allows plaintiffs to chose any county in the state to file their case.

Judge Erdos in a June 20 hearing in which he dismissed a bizarre request by Savage’s attorney Conor Corcoran for a protective order against Mrs. Hoopes and Stenstrom, noted that none of the various cases regarding 2020 election fraud allegations ever went before a jury and that the eyes of the world will be on Philadelphia when this case goes to trial.

Considering the indictments against Trump filed, yesterday, Aug. 1, by Special Counsel Jack Smith alleging that the President conspired to defraud the government, impede Congress and violated persons right to vote for saying the 2020 election was rigged, it seems a whole lot of cases regarding 2020 are now going to be going to trail.

Wonder if Smith considered that before filing his indictments. He was under a lot of pressure after all being as how Hunter Biden’s former business partner Devon Archer had just testified to Congress that Joe Biden listened in on his son’s business meetings and met with the corrupt mayor of Moscow’s filthy rich widow after his which his little boy got a $40 million investment.

Mainstream Publications Now Airing Vote Fraud Suspicions

Mainstream Publications Now Airing Vote Fraud Suspicions — John Daniel Davidson of The Federalist points out that the poison injected into America’s veins in 2020 is not going away and that any Republican seeking to challenge Donald Trump for the 2024 nomination better recognize it as to have a prayer of a chance.

Even that would likely be futile.

Simple logic shows that the honorable thing is to support the one who was wronged, not attack him.

Davidson says the election wasn’t taken from Trump but from the American voter. He fudges a little about it having been stolen but is definitive that it was fixed.

“After all, the people and institutions that rigged it have freely admitted what they did,” he writes. “They suppressed the Hunter Biden laptop story, censored what Americans could say on social media, introduced unprecedented changes to our voting system under the pretext of pandemic precautions, and poured hundreds of millions of dollars into putatively nonpartisan local election offices through Mark Zuckerberg-connected nonprofits for the sole purpose of turning out Democrat voters in swing states.”

And he certainly doesn’t dismiss the possibility of out-and-out theft.

“Plenty of them will always believe, not without reason, that 2020 was stolen outright,” he says. “Many millions more believe, with even more reason, that it was rigged unfairly against Trump and that the same forces are at work now to rig it against whomever the GOP nominee turns out to be.”

Our leaders — especially in the judiciary — must leave their pleasant bubbles and see the seething anger held by the many who once considered FBI agents and federal prosecutors to be heroes.

Officials must bend over backwards regarding election transparency.

They must stop fighting right-to-know requests like cornered rats.

Why doesn’t Delaware County, Pa. want the public to see its correspondence with its ballot printer, Fort Orange Press of Albany, N.Y.?

Why can’t candidates verify that the ballot envelopes have proper signatures?

That these simple things are being fought can’t be taken as anything but proof that our votes are being stolen.

We are going to call out by name Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court Justice Michael H. Wojcik.

Two days ago, he presided over a hearing concerning access to ballot envelope signatures.

Rather than resolve the matter by ordering access to these public records, he dumped it on Delaware County Common Pleas Court.

He accepted Delco lawyer Manley Parks argument that Commonwealth Court wasn’t the proper venue since only county officials were involved. This is despite the county seeking, and getting, direction from the Department of State.

Put all the cards on the table now. If it should turn out that nothing untoward happened, or if it did it was minor, a crisis is averted.

If it should be found that the vote fraud was real and decisive, don’t become a co-conspirator.
