from Ken Ditkowsky

The article from the Register addresses the situation in which a senior is placed in a nursing home = it does not specifically address the placement by a guardian for profit (i.e. a Court appointed guardian).

It you follow the political news, when political figure finds himself/herself in an unfavorable limelight the weaseling begins which results in the drip, drip, drip torture of expose after expose.   The ‘elder cleansers’ all have been playing the system for a long time and the growth of opposition parties to the War on the Elderly and the Disabled has not gone un-noticed.
These are very smart people.   The have enlisted cadres of corrupt jurists, judicial officials, and public officials to do their dirty work.     As Trump and Clinton both have pointed out – dollars talk.    Here in Illinois a simple request for an HONEST INVESTIGATION gathers outraged ire and even disbarment of the attorneys making such a First Amendment Request.   Not even the Court’s of last resort have the integrity to resist the miscreants.   The State is bankrupt, but tax collectors look the other way as billions of dollars are extorted, more billions are stolen, and government coffers are raided for additional billions.  The Watchdogs of the public house are deaf, dumb, blind, and out to lunch.
The state of affairs is about to change.   Even without media attornment or publicity the general public is learning that Mr. Jerome Larkin (as an example) owes taxes on his conspiratorial receipt of billions of dollars stolen from seniors and disabled people by the corrupt lawyers and judges he protects. The public is upset that Larkin is immune from paying the very taxes that they would have pay and little by little outrage is building.
The promulgators of the health care fraud syndromes whether nursing home operators (and owners) or just run of mill criminals know that once the public gets to know the facts they will be the focus of some very aggressive law enforcement.   In the last century tar and feathers was a favor method of dealing with the miscreants.   Thus, their ‘wired’ Courts are going to either do the jobs that the public expects or become unwired.
These facts may be obscured to us, but not our opponents.   Thus, they are ‘short circuiting’ the outrage by redirecting it.    Janet Phelan alerted us to the licensing gambit.  (NB. licensing only the guardians for profit and providing the public with another benign regulatory body that is designed to protect the elder cleansing industry).    The arbitration ploy with proper safeguards to protect the pre-determination for the health care provider is a easy sell.    
Who could complain to the following formula:
1) the parties agree to pick from a panel of arbitrators their arbitrator – i.e. a retired judge!
or
2) from a panel of arbitrators each side picks an arbitrator and the two arbitrators pick a third.
or
*****
Think for a minute?   Who do you know who is an arbitrator?    For that matter – who do you know who is lawyer who does arbitration?    Let me assure you – the nursing home operators know quite a few of those fellows.   The well is “salted” from day one.
Let’s go a step further.   YOU are not a party – the party is Grandma.   She has been adjudicated incompetent and her guardian – appointed by that corrupt judge – is going to pick the arbitrator.    Do I have to draw the picture any further!
The object is to frustrate your protestations and create a delusion – suggesting that your complaint is frivolous and you are ‘nut!’     Article alerts us to yet another aspect of the War on the Elderly and the Disabled and why we have to urge Attorney General Lynch to start making some meaningful indictments that will encourage the health care industry (and in particular the elder cleansers) to just follow rule of law.
As I’ve stated many times before – I like the idea of Jerome Larkin and his co-conspirators being required by the Civil branch of the Department of the Treasury to just pay the income taxes, interest and penalties that they owe jointly and severally.
