The video of the proceedings in the Florida Legislature are most encouraging.
The major problem that I see with so much of the governmental help that we receive is Intellectual dishonesty.
It was very clear when I first became involved with the Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission of Illinois that a word that was not in their lexicon was “intellectual honesty.” When I was punished by a four year suspension of my law license because I asked for an HONEST investigation of the railroading of disabled and elderly people into guardianships so that they could be deprived of their liberty and their life savings, I realized that I was observing the nadir of the legal profession that was memorialized in literature. As I watched the antics of Jerome Larkin, Lea Black, et al I could not help but be reviled by the cesspool of corruption that they acted in concert with and openly and notoriously aided and abetted. The Bill of Rights was just a technicality and statutes that were inconvenient were ignored so that they could contribute the War on the Elderly and the Disabled.
Many Illinois citizens complained to the IARDC concerning the ‘elder cleansings’ and were rebuffed. The over-paid under educated lawyers were disinterested in the statute authorizing guardianship or its limitation, to wit:
Guardianship shall be utilized only as is necessary to promote the well-being of the disabled person, to protect him from neglect, exploitation, or abuse, and to encourage development of his maximum self-reliance and independence. Guardianship shall be ordered only to the extent necessitated by the individual’s actual mental, physical and adaptive limitations.
755 ILCS 5/11a-3
Larkin, Black, et al could have cared less. 42 USCA 12203 did not apply to them. The reasoned that the Illinois Supreme Court had made each of them ‘superman’ and no subject to the Rule of Law. Ergo, they were ‘gods’ in their own right. I asked during my hearing if I was repentant for writing my complaint to the Attorney General of the United States. 18 USCA 4. I was not and said so.
What is disturbing is that Larkin knows that he is assaulting the First Amendment and he continues his ultra vires actions as if the Rule of Law ceased to exist. Well knowing the immunity of 730 ILCS 20/4 and the 47 USCA 230 Larkin prosecutes JoAnne Denison for writing a blog that is critical of the ‘elder cleansers.’ On April 10, 2015 at 9:30 am, 130 E Randolph in Chicago he has scheduled a hearing for Denison to argue the appeal of the bogus and kangaroo proceeding that he previously orchestrated. Even though an independent panel would have, after reading the documents, dismissed the proceedings against Ms. Denison and requested that the prosecutor, Mr. Larkin and the prior panel be disciplined because of their total disregard of the Constitutions of the State of Illinois and the United States of America, to date, Larkin and company have repeatedly dismissed gross human and civil rights abuses as mere “technicalities” and they appear to have a great amount of protection to dismiss the public outcry to simply do their jobs and end the cottage industry of elder cleansing.
The extra-judicial actions of miscreants such as Larkin send a chill though any optimism that is engendered by the Florida Legislation and the good feelings that are expressed. Let me explain. Every state has some limitation just like the Illinois statute quoted supra. In Indiana the Statute spells out who (other than minors) is to be subjected to a guardianship.
“Incapacitated person” means an individual who:
· (1) Cannot be located upon reasonable inquiry;
· (2) Is unable:
o (A) To manage in whole or in part the individual’s property;
o (B) To provide self-care; or
o (C) Both;
o because of insanity, mental illness, mental deficiency, physical illness, infirmity, habitual drunkenness, excessive use of drugs, incarceration, confinement, detention, duress, fraud, undue influence of others on the individual, or other incapacity; or
The appointment of a guardian with complete and unfettered powers should be relatively rare; however, as anyone who has ever been to a probate court is aware – the limited guardian is rare. How can that be? It is a fact because of corrupt jurists who do not believe in their oaths of office or as attorneys. It exists because of the criminal activities of public official such as Jerome Larkin who treat their offices as personal fiefdoms so that they can flaunt their intellectual dishonesty.
TL is known to many of the people on the barricades seeking to halt the offensive of Larkin and the elder cleansers. I am certain that you know that about 30 years ago he was wrongfully adjudicated a disabled person so that a partner could grab his business interests. The ploy worked and TL became a non-person. A non-person unfortunately has few rights and is very easy to exploit.
In the Mary Sykes case, as an example, a safety deposit box was breached and a million dollars in gold coins just disappeared. The fiduciary now exhibiting new wealth is protected by the booty, two guardians’ ad litem, several circuit court judges, the Illinois attorney registration and disciplinary commission, etc. It is very clear that none of the co-conspirators have paid dime one in Income taxes to the State of Illinois or the United States of America or is worried about prosecution pursuant to 18 USCA 371. Indeed, they continue to assault the core values of America with the prosecution of Joanne Denison for mentioning their crimes in her blog!
TL as a non-person has been just over the radar trying to assist the families and friends of the elder cleansed wards of the corrupt guardians retain their rights of citizenship. He pointed out to each of us that in addition to the statutory limitation on the powers of a guardian (and a court) to dehumanize his/her ward and strip them of their liberty and property rights there is federal legislation called the Americans With Disabilities Act that makes it clear the that criminal conspiracy of elder cleansing is ultra vires not only for the State courts, but, the entire United States of America. Thus, Jerome Larkin’s assaults on JoAnne Denison’s civil rights are not only criminal under State law but Federal as well. It is interesting but each attorney and each panel member who participates in these violations also commits criminal acts that could result in jail.
If the Department of Justice going to indict Larkin for his 18 USCA 242, 18 USCA 1341 **** violations? The evidence is overwhelming! Are his co-conspirators going to jail with him? In a perfect world this would have occurred already!
The legislative action in Florida is laudable and a great victory for the elderly and the disabled who are being exploited and abuse openly and notoriously; however, law enforcement has to step in and put some of the miscreants in jail. The legal profession has to step up and eliminate from its ranks Jerome Larkin and his ilk! Mr. Justice Jackson pointed out during the trials of Nazi brass after World War 2 that being a ‘good German’ was not enough. Humans have to follow their conscience and be intellectually honest. The fact that Jerome Larkin can get away with his and his cronies assaults on the First Amendment does not legitimize them. America Public Officials have to do more than talk or write legislation!
Everyone gets old!
I defined the abusive, exploitative
and ultra vires guardianships as “elder cleansing.” Elder cleansing is the First cousin to racial cleansing and ethnic cleansing.
