What is most amazing is the fact that the Courts should be so benign in their defense of the victims of Elder Abuse/Financial Exploitation of the Elder and so pro-active in their defense of the criminals who are appointed by it and who misuse their offices as guardians to exploit and abuse senior citizens (or assist others in their endeavor of abusing and exploiting grandma). What is also amazing is the fact that decent and normally caring people can sit on their hands and allow this tragic situation to continue. Two faced and disingenuous members of the political elite who ‘rape’ grandma and then boast about the fact that they are distressed that she might have her social security reduced by a dollar are expected to be miscreants. The Courts and Law Enforcement are expected to be vigorous in defense of liberty, justice, and the American way. It may all sound trite – but ****.
The Illinois ARDC prosecution of yours truly for the exercise of my First Amendment Rights has opened my eyes and generated the realization that the slogan “democracy is not a spectator sport” is not only true but a dire warning. The bulwark of America is her Bill of Rights and in particular the First and Fifth Amendments to the United States Constitution. The Right protected by the Sixth Amendment to counsel is also important but I am not of record in any of the cases that I are mentioned in the ethics complaint filed by the ARDC against me. The rights of citizens to employ a lawyer who is not married to the ‘status quo’ or the current politics is only a tangent. So the fact that I stand accused of doing a FRCP 11 investigation and communicating with my clients and reporting serious misconduct on the part of some ‘august’ court appointed vultures is relevant only as it relates to whether or not the ARDC can engage in a prior restraint of my continued calls for an investigation and my advocating for the Right of a senior citizen not to be wrongfully deprived of his/her liberty property or human rights to further the avarice of some ‘whore of justice.’
As an American Citizen and a lawyer who takes the oath that I took in 1961 seriously, I will and intend to continue to call on Law Enforcement to Investigate the Mary Sykes case and all of those similar cases regardless of the personal consequences to me. Indeed, I call for an honest and comprehensive investigation of the Sykes, Tyler, Wyman and similar cases. I call for the investigation of Farenga, Stern, and Schmiedel and their conduct in relation to the Sykes case, their wrongful prosecution of a sanction motion against me knowing that the Court had no jurisdiction, their interference with the property rights of Gloria Sykes etc. This is America. Mary Sykes who just weeks before a petition was filed to determine her incompetent and eligible to be deprived of her liberty, her property, civil rights and human rights is reported to have passed a written examination administered by the Illinois Secretary of State in addition to filing a Petition for a Protective order against the very person who was appointed her plenary guardian. Thanks to efforts of the two guardian ad litem appointed in the Sykes case this petition was never addressed or heard in the Circuit Court.
If legal justification for my conduct is necessary, the rationale and justification is ‘set in stone. The New Times vs. Sullivan case and the Pentagon Papers cases affirm that the effort to silence me and/or intimidate me whether by the actions of Mr. Stern, Ms. Farenga or Mr. Schmiedel or a government agency is wrong. The ‘assault’ on the liberty, property and civil rights of Mary Sykes, Gloria Sykes, their family, their friends et al is not necessitated by National Security – the avarice of the plenary guardian and her co-conspirators does not meet the criterion set forth by the United States Supreme Court in the Pentagon Papers case. As a lawyer I have a greater duty to speak out against the corruption of the legal system and even if I had been or record the precedent of Nebraska Press v Stewart obviates all argument that justifies the attempt to silence me. Indeed, my calls for an investigation and for Mr. Stern and Ms. Farenga to report to the Court the non-inventory of about a million dollars in assets, numerous trips by Mary Sykes to the emergency room of the local hospital, failure to provide proper notice etc. does not create a situation in which there would be a substantial probability of interference with a fair trial (Gentile v State Bar of Nebraska). Indeed, the stated principle of the Illinois State Bar is recorded in Himmel. Therein Attorneys were mandated to report improper conduct of other lawyers.
I’ve cited a few cases not to impress but to demonstrate that I am not a pioneer. The Gulag mentality that is robbing the senior citizens of the liberty, their property, civil rights and human rights reported on the blogs and on the inter-net (and virtually ignored in the press and by law enforcement) is foreign. Our heroes are not the guardian ad litem who aid and abet a plenary guardian who isolates a senior citizen and separates her from her family, her activities, her friends and her property. Today we live in the year 2012, however, we have allowed a small group of miscreants to create in seniors the fear, desperation, and hopelessness that millions of Europeans felt in 1936.
The Sykes case and all those cases in which senior citizens are either losing their liberty, property, civil rights, human rights need to be investigated and the miscreants given free room board and time to contemplate the error of their ways. A Free society cannot tolerate or condone the events that have been reported in the Sykes case and similar cases! Citizens have to speak out and avoid the 1936 scenario for grandma! Grandma’s protectors cannot be silenced or intimidated. We have law enforcement to protect us! It is time for them to start doing exactly that.
*an no offense to Pole Dancers. I know they honest, hard working women trying to support a family or get thru college. Corrupt officials are pretty much the low of the low dirty, flea dogs. Okay no offense to dirty flea dogs, I wish a good family for them.
