Update: February 20, 2012

Hello, Friends,
I was rather pleased to just receive this letter from Senator John McCain.  It is in response to his copy of my letter of January 29, 2012 to Senate Majority Harry Reid (also posted here).  Senator McCain is from Arizona.  I graduated with honors from the world-acclaimed Thunderbird School of Global Management, located in Glendale, AZ just outside of Phonix.  Seeming small steps can be important building blocks!

Update February 15, 2012

Hello, Friends,
Related to what I have described as a "Constitutional Crisis" in state government, I just prepared the attached article on "The Secularization of Government".
The article discusses a shift in our federal courts from Constitutional and Biblical principles to what some call relativism or pragmatism and what others describe as the progressive rejection of the Constitution.
I describe my view of the establishment of the primary foundation of this process which is a set of federal actions of 1913 including the passage of the 16th and 17th Amendments and the Congressional approval of the Federal Reserve Banking Act.  I then describe some particulars of the 1947 Supreme Court case of Everson v. Board of Education (the case which first uses the term of separation of church and state) and of the trends of the Supreme Court of the 1950's and 1960's under Chief Justice Earl Warren.
I make a very important statement:
"In reality, what happens is that when government conduct follows such a secularist policy, it becomes even more likely that the fundamental, inalienable, God-given rights of the people as are affirmed in various Constitutional provisions including the 9th Amendment will be disregarded."
I also provide a portion of the Inaugural Address of President George Washington.  Given on April 30, 1979, it includes the following:
"[I]t would be peculiarly improper to omit, in this first official act, my fervent supplications to that Almighty Being who rules over the universe, who presides in the councils of nations, and whose providential aid can supply every human defect . . .  No people can be bound to acknoweldge and adore the Invisible Hand which conducts the affairs of men more than those of the United States.  Every step by which they have advanced to the character of an independent nation seems to have been distinguished by some token of providential agency . . . .  [W]e ought to be no less persuaded that the propitious [favorable] smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained."
This information and comments are of great importance and timeliness!
Regards,
Ethan Book

Update February 6, 2012

Hello, Friends,
This pertains to my federal court challenge of portions of the recent statewide election process.  Initially filed in August of 2010, the action seeks a court mandaus regarding the Republican primary election (that initially for legal issues regarding actions of then Secretary of State Susan Bysiewicz) plus financial compensation.  Named Defendants include former Secretary of State Bysiewicz, former Attorney General Richard Blumenthal and the Co-Chairmen of the Government Administration & Elections Committee. The lawsuit was amended in November 2010 to challenge also the election results for the position of U.S. Senator (with subsequent issues raised also regarding the results of the election for Governor).
After the lawsuit was dismissed in Federal District Court in February 2011 (by Judge Peter C. Dorsey, formally a U.S. Attorney as was Richard Blumenthal), I appealed his decision to the Second Circuit Court of Appeals.  There, the court curiously put the matter through some procedural hoops until November 17, 2011 when it issued a ruling to dismiss the Appeal for the stated reason that it lacks an arguable basis in law or fact.  I promptly presented a Motion for Reargument which was denied.  On January 27, 2012, the court issued a Mandate.  The issuance of a mandate is the procedural device whereby the Court of Appeals gives notice of having completed its review for which its jurisdiction of an appeal ends and jurisdiction of the case can return for certain purposes to the District Court.  None of these procedural steps prevents one from taking the matter to the U.S. Supreme Court.  However, there is a procedure for recalling a mandate, that to be used where a litigant believes that the Court of Appeals committed error and he may seek further review from the Court of Appeals.
Upon receiving notice of the issuance of the Mandate, for my understanding of the reasons given that the court dismissed the Appeal, I promptly prepared the attached Motion and sent it to the Court of Appeals on Saturday (38 pages of text plus 41 pages of 8 Exhibits attached separately).

Update January 30, 2012

Hello, Friends,
Attached you will find my most recent letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid regarding the issue of the assignment of Richard Blumenthal to the Judiciary Committee, my federal court challenge of portions of the recent statewide election process and related matters.
The eight-page letter  discusses issues of serious and glaring error on the part of the Second Circuit Clerk of Court and that Court of Appeals in the matter of Book v. CRRA et al., an earlier case with issues which interplay with the election challenge in Book et al. v. Bysiewicz et al. There are glaring issues of reverse-gender bias, of political bias and of substantive due process.
Regarding reverse-gender bias, I assert that "Reverse-gender bias is a critical political cancer to current American society!  It has become a de-facto novo-slavery!  Also, reverse-gender bias is a vehicle by which other [politically] sensitive biases and preferenses are administered."
Another important and well-supported statement that I make is "[t]hus, through a pattern of judicial errors, not just in the recent matters but extending for over fifteen years, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals artificially and constructively spiked the recent statewide election process".
Then I state that "[n]either the Founding Fathers nor God intended either implicitly or explicitly that I or those whom I symbolize should be deemed and treated as second-class citizens."

Update January 9, 2012

Hello, Friends,
Attached you will find my letter of January 8th date sent to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.  The 7-page letter (plus attachment)
(1) gives detail which bolsters my previous vigorous objection to the Democrat Party assignment of Richard Blumenthal to the Senate Judiciary Committee,
(2) reaffirms my declaration that Richard Blumenthal should immediately voluntarily resign from his fundamentally defective putative position as U.S. Senator and
(3) adds my new assertion of patterns of deliberate indifference by the Senate Democrat Party majority.
The letter to Senator Reid involves an enclosure of a separate letter sent on January 5th to the Clerk of the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals for serious procedural mishandling of a politicly-sensitive lawsuit of Ethan Book Jr. v. Connecticut Resources Recovery Authority (CRRA) et al., a matter of which Mr. Blumenthal as Connecticut Attorney General had a dubious role.  The material and the legal and political issues which are represented are interrelated with issues of my separate pending federal lawsuit of the diredt challenge to portions of the recent statewide election process, Ethan Book and Ethan Book for U.S. Senate v. Susan Bysiewicz et al.
Senator John McCain was a prisoner of war in Viet Nam.  I was a political prisoner in the State of Connecticut. The latter is also a grim reality of national significance and it needs to be fully and openly reviewed and understood.
This material touches on several major issues of national significance!
Regards,
Ethan Book
