Subject: Re: I2F – Transaction Review Result

The following url’s show that the F.B.I. is prosecuting hospice and medicare frauds quite vigorously.  Neither the SunTimes nor the Chicago Tribune is carrying the stories or making the connections.  (The Sun-times briefly carried the story, but apparently only in its Lincolnwood Edition, and its “SEARCH ENGINE” is supposedly acting up and can’t find the links!)We need people to find these links and keep up the pressure on the media to connect the dots.  This could end up being VERY significant for Gloria, and for all of the people out there whose loved ones have been railroaded into guardianships.

We know that there are tie-ins between the persecution of Gloria and her mother and certain persons in Chicago  involved in these schemes.

From the FBI website

May 29, 2014
Matthew Kolodesh, a/k/a “Matvei Kolodech,” 52, of Churchville, Pennsylvania, was sentenced Friday to 176 months in prison and ordered to pay $16.2 million in restitution to Medicare and $16.2 million in a forfeiture money judgment for orchestrating a scheme to defraud Medicare through his home hospice business, among other crimes, announced United States Attorney Zane David Memeger.
In October 2013, following a four-week jury trial, a federal jury found Kolodesh guilty of conspiracy to commit health care fraud, 21 counts of health care fraud, 11 counts of money laundering, and two counts of mail fraud. From 2003 to 2008, Kolodesh’s business, Home Care Hospice Inc. (HCH), located on Grant Avenue in NE Philadelphia, submitted false claims to Medicare totaling approximately $16.2 million for patients that were not eligible for hospice services and for patients that never received the level of hospice services billed by HCH. Ineligible patients were patients who were not terminally ill and patients who were on service for more than six months.
The scheme was successful because nurses and other staff participated in a massive fraud that involved altering patient records to make patients appear eligible for hospice services, when in reality they were not. HCH even tricked Medicare auditors. At the direction of Kolodesh and co-owner and co-conspirator Alex Pugman, who was the director of HCH, HCH nurses and supervisory staff routinely “fixed” patient files and re-wrote nursing documentation to make patients appear sicker “on paper” by showing decline in medical condition through false entries for infections, fever, and weight loss, among other things. Old records were destroyed. The staff was also paid to falsely document 24 hour periods of high cost, intensive hospice care than was actually provided to the patient.
In order to buildup patient enrollment, Kolodesh and Pugman also paid health care professionals, including doctors, for referring patients to HCH, even when those patients were not eligible or appropriate for hospice services. In an effort to mask the kickback scheme, HCH fraudulently represented that some of those health care professionals were paid for services as medical directors, advisers, or hospice physicians.
“This massive fraud on a critical federal program costs taxpayers dearly,” said United States Attorney Zane David Memeger. “Today’s sentence makes clear that the justice system will punish severely those criminals who engage in this type of fraud and abuse. We will continue to work diligently with our federal partners to bring to justice those who defraud the government and deprive federal programs of valuable tax dollars.”
“Medicare is a crucial component of our nation’s healthcare system,” said FBI Special Agent in Charge Edward J. Hanko. “This sentence sends a clear message to anyone looking to game that system and steal taxpayers’ money: we will catch you, and we will put you away.”
“Kolodesh’s 14-year prison sentence is a clear message to those stealing from Medicare,” said Nick DiGiulio, Special Agent in Charge for the Inspector General’s Office of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in Philadelphia. “We will keep working with our partners to protect our health care system from fraud, waste, and abuse and to send thieves to prison.”
Kolodesh siphoned $7.77 million dollars from HCH’s bank account for his own personal enrichment. His spouse was set up as a sham CEO of the company and received millions of dollars in salary draws and bonuses. Kolodesh also used funds for extensive renovations to his mansion, travel expenses for his family and friends, college tuition for his son, and a luxury automobile. He siphoned substantial sums of cash from the HCH operating account through cash kickback arrangements with various HCH vendors using a system of phony and inflated invoicing and through a charitable donation scam arranged with a local synagogue in which he was a member.
The mail fraud convictions stemmed from another scam orchestrated by Kolodesh which involved the Philadelphia Development Corporation (PIDC). In 2005, Kolodesh and Pugman applied for a low-interest loan worth $2.5 million with PIDC, a program designed to stimulate business investment and create jobs in the city of Philadelphia. The loan money was to be used to acquire and renovate a property for the business and to create 50 bona fide jobs in Philadelphia at 2801 Grant Avenue, the site of HCH. However, between August 2005 and July 2009, the job quota was not being met. To prevent default on the loan, Kolodesh set up a sham office at the Grant Avenue location purportedly for Community Home Health (CHH), his Bucks County health care business. Kolodesh falsely identified 73 CHH employees as working at that office location on Grant Avenue who, in fact, did not work there.
The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Inspector General. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Suzanne B. Ercole and Trial Attorney Margaret Vierbuchen of the Organized Crime and Gang Section in the Justice Department’s Criminal Division.

From Ken Ditkowsky–response to ARDC threats to sock him with $1k in costs for a wrongful trial

If you review the Rules of Discipline for attorneys, there is a rule that the ARDC can get up to $1,000 in costs after they win.

The only problem with Ken’s case is he did nothing wrong.  The ARDC accuses him of falsely claiming to represent Mary in a letter to Dr. Patel, but they refuse to link to the letter on their blog, because the letter says the opposite.  They then say he lied about judges, but the record in 09 P 4585 is clear the court never served Mary nor her sisters and is sans jurisdiction.  This blog publishes those claims of Mr. Ditkowsky and challenges the ARDC and miscreants to support their (bogus) claims, which they simply cannot do.  It is all a facade, a house of cards.

So then we ask ourselves, why are they doing this, and we search for health care fraud, insurance fraud, etc. on the internet (and not in Chicago local papers) we find many internet articles on those topics, but the shocker is that HHS.gov and FBI.gov note allegations and convictions in this arena in absolutely astounding amounts of tens of millions of dollars ($90 million for attorney Stillman, $150 million for Omnicare, etc).  The real shocker is when you get to elder care and hospice and the level of fraud is absolutely unbelievable.

So, today on the SCOI website (Sup. Ct. of Ill.) Mr. Ditkowsky uploaded the following:

IN THE SUPREME COURT OF ILLINOIS

In the matter of:                                    ]
            Kenneth Ditkowsky                  ]    MR 26516
            Respondent                              ]   Commission No. 2012 PR OOO14
 
RESPONSE TO MOTION FOR COSTS
 
Now comes Kenneth Ditkowsky and objects to the assessment of costs and raises the Jurisdictional issue herein upon the following basis:
1)                  Lack of detail and evidence of costs.   That the request for costs, while misrepresenting the position of the respondent[1], does not detail what costs if any are appropriately charged to the respondent.  Costs have been narrowly defined and arbitrary assessments are improper. 
2)                  Lack of Jurisdiction.  That it is respectfully submitted that costs are particularly improper in these instant proceedings as the Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission and the Supreme Court of the State of Illinois lack jurisdiction in this matter[2].  In particular:
a.                   Lack of Subject Matter jurisdiction:  Pursuant to Article 1 Section 4 of the Illinois Constitution of 1970 and the First Amendment to the United States Constitution the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution removed from the State of Illinois (including the Supreme Court of the State of Illinois) the power to regulate the Speech of a citizen (including a lawyer).  The FirstAmendment
“is designed and intended to remove governmental restraints from the arena of public discussion, putting the decision as to what views shall be voiced largely into the hands of each of us, … in the belief that no other approach would comport with the premise of individual dignity and choice upon which our political system rests.” Cohen v. California, 403 U.S. 15, 24, 91 S.Ct. 1780, 29 L.Ed.2d 284 (1971).  As relevant here, the First Amendment safeguards an individual’s right to participate in the public debate through political expression and political association. See Buckley, 424 U.S., at 15.  McCutcheon v. F.E.C., 12-536, 2014 WL 1301866 (U.S. Apr. 2, 2014)
 
The Supreme Court has made it very clear in the cases of United States v. Alvarez, 132 S. Ct. 2537, 183 L. Ed. 2d 574 (2012), Brown v. Entmn’t Merchants Ass’n, 131 S. Ct. 2729, 180 L. Ed. 2d 708 (2011), Ashcroft v. Am. Civil Liberties Union, 542 U.S. 656, 124 S. Ct. 2783, 159 L. Ed. 2d 690 (2004), Snyder v. Phelps, 131 S. Ct. 1207, 179 L. Ed. 2d 172 (2011), Citizens United v. Fed. Election Comm’n, 558 U.S. 310, 130 S. Ct. 876, 175 L. Ed. 2d 753 (2010).  McCutcheon v. F.E.C., 12-536, 2014 WL 1301866 (U.S. Apr. 2, 2014) that Government including State, Federal Government, and the Court do not have the power (jurisdiction) to impede, interfere with, or otherwise prevent any citizen (including lawyers) from speaking out as to issues of the day.  Elder cleansing including abusive guardianships is a protected topic.
b.                  18 USCA 4.  It is respectfully suggested that all the matters that the respondent is accused of writing concerning were felonies committed by various persons who the IARDC arbitrarily and wrongfully chose to protect.    Indeed, pursuant to Federal Statute the letters that respondent is charged with writing to the Attorney General of the United States, and law enforcement, are required communications.  It is respectfully submitted that the Administrator of the IARDC in punishing the respondent with a four year suspension for communication with law enforcement concerning felonies is himself guilty of a violation of 18 USCA 371 and obstruction of justice.  It is respectfully submitted that this Court lacks jurisdiction to regulate the compliance or enforcement of Federal Statutes, and cannot by definition engage in conduct that might be interpreted as obstruction of justice.
In short, the Respondent had a duty to report the felonies that are the subject of this disciplinary complaint, he did so, and this Court lacks jurisdiction to impose discipline on him for his compliance with the United States Code section 18 USCA 4 which states:
Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both”   18 U.S.C.A. § 4 (West)[3]
            It therefore follows as the respondent (Ditkowsky) is required pursuant to 18 USCA 4 to risk a three year sentence for not complying with the Federal Statute, his receipt of a four year suspension for complying with the statute is an oxymoron and in derogation of In re Karavidas, 2013 IL 115767, but other jurisdictions
            Wherefore, the respondent moves for a denial of the assessment of costs as to the void judgment rendered by this Court punishing respondent for asserting his citizen requirements, a Federal Statute and allowing the petitioner IARDC to infringe on  the First. Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution, Article 1 Section 4 and Article 1 section 12 of the Illinois Constitution of 1970..[4]
Respectfully Submitted,
Kenneth Ditkowsky
 
5940 W. Touhy Ave.
Niles, Illinois 60714

[1] The statement attributed to Mr. Larkin as to respondent’s position is irresponsible and ethically challenged.  The Petition for Cert to be filed with the Supreme Court of the United States is presently at the printer and will be forwarded and filed in the Supreme Court when finished.
[2] The Commission’s charges against Ditkowsky are faulty in that each action is verbal political or content related speech and therefore protected by the First Amendment and Article 1 section 4.  Various statutory protections also are present, to wit:  320 ILCS 20/4 (whistle blower protection for individuals (including attorneys) who report elder cleansing offenses). 735 ILCS 110/5, 18 USCA 4.  
[3] The record reveals a number of felonies being reported, to wit:  denial of liberty to a senior citizen, unlawful dominion over a senior citizen’s assets (theft), etc.  See Gloria Sykes affidavit.   This void judgment should be expunged from the record as it is an embarrassment to this Court.
[4] Respondent has been placed in a catch 22.  If he complied with the wrongful demands of the IARDC he would violation 18 USCA 371 and be guilty of Federal obstruction of justice.    By complying with the Federal law – as all citizens must – he loses his license to practice law. Article 1 Section 12 of the Illinois Constitution of 1970 is violated.
Ken Ditkowsky

The next question is, will the $1,000 claim on top of the bogus grueling 2 day trial be just another drop in the fraud bucket for Chicago and the State of Illinois? Is it just  a Hershey bar in the arena of health care and elder care fraud dollars churned in this state?

I thought it was rather interesting that knowing that the Supreme Court has in about a dozen cases pointed out that government cannot limit, impede or interfere with Free Speech.  Larkin has the temerity to no only continue to prosecute me, but he filed a petition for costs.  
 
I filed a response once again suggesting that the Illinois Supreme Court and the Illinois attorney registration and disciplinary commission are required to follow the law as set forth by the Supreme Court of the United States.   Equally interesting is the fact that Jerome Larkin demonstrates his total disrespect for the law in that 18 USCA 4 provides for a three year penalty for not reporting felonies such as are found in the Sykes and similar cases.   Larkin decrees that an attorney who complies with 18 USCA 4 is ethically challenged and therefore he meted out a four year suspension to me.   
 
Catch 22 is alive and well!    Three years for not complying with the law and four years for doing so!    Ever wonder why the public has no respect for the Law.   It will be interesting to see is the Illinois Supreme Court is embarrassed by Larkin, the IARDC, and the obvious aiding and abetting of corruption in the Illinois courts.
 
As Mr. Larkin is openly and notoriously defying the mandate of the United States of America and openly and notoriously obstructing justice, I’ve forwarded this information to the Mr. Holder.  (Mr. Larkin does not approve of lawyers writing to the Justice Department – his stooge asked me on cross examination if I repented for a letter I sent to the Attorney General of the United States.   People in the Gallery were shocked by the question and are still buzzing over the fact that an attorney paid the State of Illinois demonstrated gross ignorance by asking such a question.  Apparently the law schools do not teach the first amendment or the policy and practice of the IARDC is to maintain a code of silence so as to protect as much corruption as is possible).    
 
The question that is presented is – does the Rule of Law mean something – or is like the Soviet constitution – meaningless words!  
 
I requested an HONEST intelligent complete and comprehensive investigation of the entire elder cleansing scandal – No only has Larkin and the IARDC indicated they are not interested the have prosecuted JoAnne, Amu and myself for making such a suggestion.
 
For Larkin’s edification – please be advised that I do not repent for complying with 18 USCA 4, and routinely now write to law enforcement not only requesting an HONEST COMPLETE INTELLIGENT AND COMPREHENSIVE INVESTIGATION of the IARDC, Adam Stern, Cynthia Farenga, Peter Schmiedel, Miriam Solo et al and their respective roles in the Sykes, Gore and similar cases but I intend to press not only for the investigation but for an investigation of why Larkin, Black et al are so opposed to such an investigation and how they justify aiding and abetting the criminal conduct that has been performed on Sykes, Gore, Wyman, Tyler and others!   It will be very interesting to hear under oath explanation concerning *****

Similarities between Kids for Cash and Elder Cleansing–what happens when courts go bad

Someone just sent me the following link regarding court corruption:

http://www.thepeoplesvoice.org/TPV3/Voices.php/2014/05/29/when-the-worst-law-breakers-are-those-en

(see second video for 20/20 segment)

and then Kathie Bakken sent me this link:

Here’s a link to a different video about the same events.
(The link you have posted is from a Russian or Afghan reporter and is a bit difficult to understand due to the accent) and they
sound like they have an ax to grind with the US.
And a link to info re: the documentary – interview with the mother (caseworker, she says that everything in court was the opposite of what it should have been, her daughter was arrested because she made fun of her high school principal  on myspace) who broke the story

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NtlSCSm3lqI&feature=youtu.be&a

In the above videos, you will note many similarities between that Kids for Cash program and what we are seeing on the 18th floor in some cases.

1)  Parties are told by court workers “lawyers not necessary” for guardianship (this is done by the tied in agencies and nursing homes and some social workers regarding guardianships).

2)  The judge tells parties to be quiet and does not let them talk

3)  One child brought a private lawyer and the private lawyer (wrongfully) was told he could not represent the child, the child had to have a court appointed lawyer (I have the US supreme court case on that one.  A child DOES have a choice of his or her own lawyer and the court CANNOT tell a child what lawyer to use, write me on that one).  Note in guardianships, a lawyer is selected by a judge from a “secret list”.  I have heard lawyers grumble when they go to court, they basically get kicked out by the GAL and the judge and are told they can no longer represent their former client.

4) Money that is “laundered” by miscreants ends up in another state. According to this video, the money went to Jupiter, Florida in the form of a 56′ yacht called “justice” and a $750k condo.  We see GALs and probate lawyers with expensive homes in Florida and California.

5) There is scant time spent on the case.  With the kids, it was 1.5 to 3.0 minutes per case and the court relied on “reports” from court selected personnel and they just made orders from those report.  What utter hogwash.  A judge is supposed to hold a hearing, listen to witnesses and consider evidence presented and entered into the record.  Real work.  In probate, look at Mary Sykes’ transcript for December 7, 2009, the date of her hearing.  Quick, done and all over. The judge never looked for a properly served summons and complaint, she never asked about the elderly sisters.  That clearly takes too long and is far too bothersome.

7) It is noted that from 2000 to 2009, there must have been hundreds of court personnel, district attorneys, private attorneys, you name the attorney, they were there during the sentencing of 5,000 children in seconds based upon heresay reports without evidence, a hearing or findings.  Like the elder cleansing scenario, NO ONE STOOD UP FOR THE KIDS, NO ONE STOOD UP FOR JUSTICE–as Mr. Larkin would like to have our court system consist of THERE WAS A CONSPIRACY OF SILENCE over 9 years and 5,000 cases and untold dozens of dozens of attorneys who said nothing and perhaps a disciplinary board was involved for the judges and the attorneys that saw all of this, and the new reports never mention those disciplinary boards.

(Note, I have been asked many times to take down this blog, kowtow to the powers that be, protect my law license AND I WILL NOT GIVE UP YOUR JUSTICE FOR MY INCOME, rest assured.  I tell it like it is.)

From the news segment, it appears that one lone female attorney seemed to tell it like it is, she was identified as a “civil justice attorney” and she pushed to get the authorities involved, the FBI.

So please don’t give up hope, I am pushing for a properly filed summons and complaint and notice to the alleged disabled, I am fighting for the right for elderly siblings to be notified 14 days in advance of the time, date and place of hearing, I am fighting to expose tied in rubber stamping docs that file improper CCP 211 forms of incompetency to get booted, I am fighting the “secret lists” on the 18th floor.

I do care.  Maybe the world sees a parade of hundreds of attorneys in court protecting the “conspiracy of silence”  noted in the 20/20 report, but that will not be me.  I am not silent.  I have a voice.  I have a blog.  As as long as many can help me fight against corruption in the atty licensing arena, I will have a law license.  But even if they take that away, I will DESERT NO COURT ROOM VICTIM.

You have my word on it.

Subject: Re: hofstetter

When I was a youngster I worked for a company called Jackson Realty.   Our business was purchasing real estate for clients.  We competed with scavengers and bottom feeders who purchased anything that they thought was a bargain.  Except for ‘tax buyers’ by 1970 most of the bottom feeders were eliminated from the market place.   The Banks recognized a profit vehicle and bid in the amount due on their mortgage and eventually the bottom feeders got the message that all the glitters was not gold.
In the probate court there is a cadre of bottom feeders who act to disguise the theft of real estate from estates.  The Sykes real estate sale is an example.    The transaction words as follows:
1) real estate is targeted.
2) arrangements are made with a co-operative employee of the lender.   The property goes from being a performing loan to a non-performing loan.   If there is equity so much the better.   A foreclosure discourages most heirs and allows co-operative judges to close their eyes.   How can anyone fault a judge who salvages a the money so that the lawyers can be paid!
 A few dollars in the right place and financing a straw buyer works wonders.   The real estate quickly disappears from the sight to the heirs and the Court, the lawyer pockets the loose change, and magically the ‘favored’ few pay off the straw person, and resell the property at a handsome profit.    Putting dollar figures on the example:
Sykes property – prior to guardianship appraisal  $700,000
After guardianship claimed valuation  $250,000.
Sale price  $240,000  – Schmiedel/Stern/Farenga all get paid.
straw person bonus – $10,000
net profit $300,000 to $400,000.
Hofstetter if he visible is probably is a straw person.   It is too dangerous for the attorney for an estate to openly and notoriously appear to be purchasing the assets of the Estate.   He is a fiduciary!    Jerome Larkin can protect him only so far!    The Internal Revenue Service special agents, the FDIC special agents, and the FBI special agents see red when the run across lawyers who prey on the elderly and the heirs of dead people.    They cannot always make a case right away but, as each puts his life on the line all the time they have empathy as they can see these same bastards preying on their families.   The white wash is not persuasive.
The one thing that the Rothner deposition teaches is that there is no shortage of dummy corporations that can be promulgated to hid assets and mischief.    It also points out that the miscreants are not shy in using their alter-ego corporations or their straw people.
I am not on a vendetta, but, I do have to point out that official corruption is present every step of the way even though it only fools the media, other public officials, and those who are naive and have no real world experience.  This is part of the health care frauds as it funds other portions of the scenario.
18 USCA 4 requires people who have knowledge of these felonies to report them to law enforcement.  Lawyers are supposed to communicate these frauds to not only law enforcement but the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission.   However, history of the Denison case, the Amu case and my situation teach us that if you are a lawyer and comply with 18 USCA 4 you will be suspended for four years.   (Take your choice – 3 years in prison for violation of 18 UsCA 4, or four years for compliance.)
As the Supreme Court has affirmed the penalty for my compliance with 18 USCA 4 and judges are elected in Illinois ******.   (We deserve what we get!)

This is from the grantor/grantee index.  If I were him, I’d make this disappear tomorrow.  I know it can be done and I’ve seen it done by probate attys to “protect the ward” but what is really does is protect the miscreant–for a price.  I’m sorry if I’m making the cost of criminal operations go up, I truly am.  The ARDC wants us attorneys to maintain a code of silence, if we can’t do that, then don’t use the word corruption and apologize if we reveal it to the public so they can be warned.  Actually, the ARDC believes the public has no rights.
this guy definitely is into a huge honey pot.
thanks for my anon tipster today, this will be forwarded to the FBI.
good job

Tim Larhman notes no Court Order to sell Mary’s Home–for any price

Mr. Lahrman notes there was no court order to sell Mary’s home.  Ken Ditkowsky notes this is a typical scenario.  In this case CT claimed she had rights under the trust–rights Gloria strenuously opposed in various courts–and which were never heard or determined by any court–and then CT sells the home and lawyers are paid as a matter of course, all without court approval.  Now I believe PS testified he got court approval for his payment from the sale, but he did not, as Gloria will verify and so will the court records.  I will publish the most recent court orders.  But the home was sold in early 2013 for $238k, about 1/3 it’s appraised value and quietly (if this blog will just shut up), later the home will be resold at a huge jump when things quiet down.
 
Same thing happened in the Carol Wyman estate.  The home was left to dilapidate, then a quick quiet sale was planned so those miscreants could sell the home at 60% of its appraised value (this is more typical and does not draw as much protest from the family or onlookers).  But what did John Wyman do?  He stepped in and stopped it at every turn, now he was left with a huge tax bill he had to redeem the home, plus a $5,300 utility lien even to get the utilities turned on and a whole host of other problems caused by a guardianship that did nothing but terrorize his entire family–all to the delight of Powell Wyman, a known abuser that just wanted his annoying, elderly wife gone and out of the picture.  He wanted to get a younger wife, and put his elderly wife away in a home and then divorce her.
 
Yep, the probate court in Illinois is  a perfect system to do that.
 
But John Wyman stepped up to the plate and had a fit, rescued his mother out to Colorado when the time came, and got her out of a horrible, horrible nursing home where she suffered near daily beatings, arrived in Colorado down 2 pints of blood and near death, plus she was sexually abused by the staff.  She kept a diary.
 
John made it possible for Carol Wyman to paint about 300 critically acclaimed works of art from 2009 to 2013 when she passed over.
 
John Wyman is a saint for doing all this.  Please pray for him because he still has major work to do to attain justice.

 Of course not!   The back door approach is the approved method of operation in these elder cleansing cases.  
 
Like it or not, the Illinois ARDC under Larkin not only condones the extra-judicial actions of the miscreants but actively protects them.   18 USCA 4 was enacted to require citizens to report such situations to law enforcement and provides a three year jail sentence for not doing so.  Larkin and the ARDC have countered with a four year suspension of law license for compliance with Federal Law.
 
As I am a victim of the Illinois catch 22, I keep writing Justice requesting them to enforce the law, and prosecute Larkin and his minions for obstruction of justice.   I also routinely copy that Professional associations as they have a vested interest in protecting the Constitution.  
 
What the 2nd oldest profession does not realize is that the day is not distant when each individual lawyer will be confronted with the same National Socialists that I have had to deal with.   It may not be in the justice system – it most probably will be in the health care system wherein they are most vulnerable.   My public service is to alert to all who are sleeping on their rights that there may be a Cynthia Farenga, Adam Stern, Peter Schmiedel, Miriam Solo, Jerome Larkin **** in their future!   
 
No one is immune!  Democracy is not a spectator sport and those of us who forget their history are doomed to relive it.    What happened to Alice Gore, Mary Sykes et al is a clear warning

There was no court order to sell Mary’s Home.

From Ken Ditkowsky–who is challenging Mr. Larkin to just do his job?

 Ginny,
 
We have the legislation to defeat the cottage industry of elder cleansing as well as put the criminals who protect the jurists and the attorneys who prey on the elderly and disabled.   What we need is aggressive law enforcement.
 
Take the actions of Mr. Jerome Larkin.   Larkin as an attorney is presumed to know more about the constitution than the average pre-teen who desires to go to high school.   Yet, the pre-teen has to pass the Constitution test and can tell you that Free Speech (1st Amendment) means that government cannot impede or interfere with a citizens communicating or the right of citizen to petition for an HONEST complete, comprehensive investigation.    Yet, Larkin had the temerity to file disciplinary actions against lawyers who enjoy that very First Amendment rights and are required by law (18 UsCA 4) to report the very felonies that Larkin is covering up.  (obstruction of justice).
 
If law enforcement is doing its job people such as Larkin would quickly be in the dock and wearing orange jumpsuits!   He is a greater menace than the terrorist who straps a bomb to himself and ****.   His and his cronies assault on the First Amendment is serious stuff!   His remaining as Administrator of the IARDC is feeding the cancer that fuels the war on the elderly and the disabled.   
 
Legislation without appropriate enforcement is not a goal.  Larkin and his ilk could care less what the Congress or the Legislature does – they ignore it and more seriously only peons such as Amu, Denison, Ditkowsky et al challenge him.
