Since I view myself validly as both Psychologist and Historian, I state categorically that the PCVST Landlord’s behavior is no better than that perpetrated by the Nazis!
This Citizen has experienced and discovered the Truth as related to the distribution of Justice to the common citizen. With the Institution of Lobbying inserted into and immodestly saturating the New York State Body Politic, there is scant chance that a Citizen can expect to exercise a given Constitutional Right, namely “To air one’s grievances before a (Presumably: Fair-minded!) Judge and a Jury of one’s Peers.”
What is the current Practice of the Courts (Municipal, NY State and Federal) rudely gathered in Lower Manhattan’s Foley Square.
The List of abuses follows:
(1) The New York City Housing Court, the criminal behavior of that institution is so extensive as to deny any concise portrayal.
According to the office of the United States “District Attorney”, vindictive, abusive and therefore Criminal Behavior of a given Judge cannot be punished, because a person holding the Title of Judge (sic US District Attorney!) cannot be challenged, precisely because that person owns the Title of Judge.
In other words, a Housing Court Judge is “beyond any Law of decency or Justice. Fraud has become Law! In this, one must wonder of the Complicity of the US District Attorney’s Office itself!
No Citizen who expects Justice or even common decency should allow him/her self to be railroaded into the precincts of that absurd vehicle, which parades itself as a Court of Justice for Citizens. But in that Housing Court, I have been held captive for nearly two years, as if I were the accused in a Murder Trial!
(2) But what of The New York State Supreme Court, falsely established to hear “Appeals” handed down by the above NYC Housing Court and indeed any other Lower Court?
The NYS Supreme Court charges a fee to any who seeks redress. Pay for Justice! If one cannot afford said “Payment”, a citizen is expected to degrade his humanity by the Court’s requirement of filing in forma pauperis (Poverty!). Thus that So-dubbed “Supreme” Court does not mind violating my Constitutional Right(s)!
My experience from the arbitrary treatment from that absurd Body (also parading as a Court of Justice) is as follows: repeated, crude and brutal rejection of my correct filing for Appeal on a small slip of stick-paper on which was written in pencil the word “denied”, without any courtesy of explanation.
After repeated Filings (with expenditures from scant funds!) to that Court, from which I received the same brutal treatment, I was forced to enter a plea to the Higher “United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.”
A new Judge (no better than the previous Judges visiting harm upon my Person, a Judge named Loretta A. Preska observed “a prolonged “sitting on my Filing” until in legitimate protest of her undue delay, I commonly filed a “Writ of Mandamus” to the court above her (i.e., The United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit), in the hope of prompting that “Judge” to act.
Apparently that Judge is well unaware that “Slow or Delayed Justice or Paid-for Justice equals No Justice, and therefore a Violation of my (and indeed any other Citizen’s Constitutional Rights!”).
Without any explanation, the Second Circuit Judges denied my Filing by citing her favorite Rule (FRAP), which Rule they do chose to explain.
In my view and that of other Authorities, my Case has become, through the hardly instructive use of Legal Technicalities, among the worst cases of Total Injustice! I have been forced to file a plea to the Supreme Court, when two Lower Courts observing absurd and impertinent Rules and whose Judges attend far too many cozy luncheons at restaurants around Foley Square, decided to deny my my Constitutional Right “To air my grievances before a (fair-minded) Judge and a Jury of my Peers!” So far, I have yet to encounter a Judge who should remain on the Bench, let alone suffer Jail-time!
WHAT OF THE DETAILS OF THE HOUSING COURT CASE ITSELF, WHOSE PRACTICES IN EVERY WORD SPEAK OF ILLEGALITY?
1) Prior to the formal filing of the Case, the Landlord Compass Management, on the verge of bankruptcy and desperate to travel any avenue of profiteering to save itself, took the route of numerous harassments upon my person. [My team has collected a list of Harassments of other elderly and disabled tenants. The Law applies a Fine of $5000.- per incident. But I have yet to observe any application of that Law. ]
(a) More than once on one or another pretext, the Landlord’s “Public Safety” personnel violently demanded entry into my home. Once, on the absurd pretext of “a Health Check” one late morning when I was still fast asleep. Accompanied by a Social Worker”(who happened to be employed by Stuyvesant Town, these persons actually broke down my door. Worse than mere “harassment? Obviously! I had learned that the presumptuous Social Worker received an annual salary of some $60,000-! Fascinating. The door was knocked off its hinges and into total disrepair. A new door had to be installed.
Related to that break in but given the fact that entirely alone to capably manage my own affairs, I delayed several weeks to arrive at the local 13th Police Precinct to record the “break-in”, perpetrated by the Landlord, who consciously violated my home and person, in order to show me who’s boss.
I believe Lawyer Michael Prince of Compass was the main authority for such violations. I had written that attorney a letter of “cease and desist” but he paid me no mind. When my case arrived at the Housing Court, that letter was published in the Court Docket, to which none of their Judges paid any mind. My experience at the Precinct was somewhat peculiar, especially since the desk officer was decidedly unwilling to record my statement.
A semi-retired Catholic Priest. Lombardy was one of the leading American chess players during the 1950’s, 1960’s and 1970’s. He also made various important appearances after that time frame. Poverty assisted by the grandiose US Chess Federation and made his retirement a forced retirement! He was a close friend, teacher, coach and adviser contemporary of Bobby Fischer, whom he coached from the time Fischer was 11½ years old.[See Biography] read more…
But let it also be said in this presentation of the Website, That there would have been no exposition of genius versus Spassky during the disputes at the start of the Reykjavik Match, had Lombardy not paved the way. Bobby and Lombardy were the only persons with the knowledge of what had been done (practical, Legal and Moral!) in order to continue and complete the Match. THat news will hopefully appear in Lombardy’s account of the Happenings at Reykjavik 1972! So Lombardy may now state in truth, that Iceland too still owes Lombardy a rather large debt, still unpaid! read more…
Incidentally, Fischer never thought to reward Lombardy for the massive assistance the new champion received over many years, training prior to the Match, convincing him to continue the Match towards the World Championship Title(Bobby’s life’s dream!)in the Great Match, general advice essential to Bobby’s well-being and watching over the distracted Champion when he might fall into dangerous trouble! At Match End, Lombardy considered a true, easy and worthwhile way of getting some reward. For he knew Bobby’s greatest flaw was parsimony. He was never rich, but nevertheless he had the habit of the Rich man’s custom of money flowing but one way, into his own purse! Lombardy waited behind the stage, while Bobby signed the scoresheet, which act certified his winning the World Chess Championship Title. read more…
A Situation, a human experience and/or scene that pictures or defines Crapitalism: On September 10, 2015, Dr. Gary Knoll(on Wbai–radio) was highly critical of researchers who made use of the tool of Psychobiography to confirm their personal opinions concluded prior to their own research. Father Lombardy expects to offer further criticism, with due respect, to the work “The Psychobiography of Bobby Fischer–by Joseph G. Ponteroto, PH.D., the author of that work. Father Lombardy notes that he himself holds a Master’s Degree in Psychology supported by massive hours in the use of Pastoral Counselling. Father Lombardy is unwilling to allow Ponteroto’s frivolous opinions to stand unchallenged. read more…
Without any argument of reason on the Cover–the Psychologist in following a well-worn path, already and immediately condemns a deceased Fischer, and later in the text ofthe book itself, that so-called literature condemns Fischer as “Mentally Ill” and that point right on the Book’s cover, without having given any reader a chance to consider what may or may not be considered factual! by serious evidence, which, in fact, does not appear in the book. By the way, Lombardy fails to consider Frank Brady an authority on Chess History, Bobby Fischer nor human natire. That opinion shall be far easier to assert and prove than the authority claimed by “The Psychobiography of Bobby Fischer, which Lombardy decided to choose as required investigative reading! read more…
On the Subject of Chess, Grandmaster Ljubimir Kavalek (formerly a citizen of the Eastern Block Country of Czechoslovakia): For many years, Kavalek has chosen to make certain incredible assertions concerning his association with World Chess Champion Bobby Fischer.
I would like to post a reminder concerning my new book “Understanding Chess: My System, My Games, My Life” (2011). The book is now available and can be purchased online here.
Had dinner at Little Poland, an authentic Polish-Ukranian eatery. But what do I have for fear of keeping my weight down? A tuna-salad plate! However, I couldn’t turn down the potatoe pancakes, which I shared with [GM de facto] Robert Hungaski (my editor for “Understanding Chess”). We were commenting on the publication of other books, but final decision will be for another time. However, I was informed by Robert that GM Oscar Panno had appreciated my comment on his instructional books in the Spanish language. I had praised it as highly educational and having exquisite workmanship.
Hello all. This is a test post for my new blog. I will be writing articles and sharing my thoughts on various subjects. All are welcome to read and share their thoughts!
