I am proud to stand with you, and am proud to use my own name and likeness in advocating for a return to a justice system that we can be proud of and a rebirth of the ‘core’ values of America. I have no intention of allowing anyone to deprive you, me, or any other citizen, including those who are elderly and/or disabled of our Constitutional Rights and liberties. Indeed, it may not be politically correct to stand up and be counted when the elite political figures have determined that x or y is not on the approved list, but, if we intend to preserve the America that our forefathers gave us = and fought and died for – we have no choice.
It may be a racist thought to call a public official appointed by the dominant political party a racist because he bars an icon of the Civil Rights movement from an open hearing, and/or complains to the Supreme Court that a lawyer who has a dark hue to his skin is a ‘clear and present’ danger to public safety because he objects to a ‘white’ corrupt jurist. The fact is the public official is the very model of a modern racist whether he has the seal of approval or not and his conduct is so reprehensible that seal of approval or not – he should be removed from all public funded programs. Those who act in concert with him should also be removed. (Yes, I am talking about Jerome Larkin and his lynch mob!) Until the IARDC reverses it actions in regard to Attorney Amu and makes amends to Diane Nash they will not be able to sweep their perfidy under the rug.
America is a Nation of Laws. We have a system in which we have sovereign States that are united in a Common Union. Each state yielded to the Federal Government a portion of its sovereignty in an effort to better protect Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. (These are the words the ‘compact’ uses). To better protect the rights of individuals the First Ten Amendments to the Constitution were enacted (Bill of Rights). Every State has as part of its Constitution a similar statement of core values. In Illinois it is Article 1 of our Constitution. The law and the Constitution apply to everyone including those persons who are old, infirm, disabled, and/or targeted by the political and judicial elite for isolation, abuse, exploitation, and finally involuntary assisted suicide. The law also prohibits the politically ‘gifted’ from exercising their ‘clout!’ Mr. Larkin and those people he acts in concert with may have temporary immunity from the laws of the United States of America – but our job (and the job of all good citizens) is to induce law enforcement to bestow upon all the miscreants a healthy respect of Law and Order. Quashing their avarice is a prime quest!
We have a smorgasbord of relevant and enforceable laws that are designed to protect you and me and all the other citizens including the elderly and the disabled. The fact that miscreants such as Larkin and those he acts in concert with him have thwarted the application of these laws does not mean that they are not viable and/or are unenforceable. They are! For instances 320 ILCS 20/4 gives immunity to persons who report matters such as occurred in the Sykes and Gore cases from prosecution including disciplinary Actions. 735 ILCS 110/5 is a legislative statement that deplores exactly the actions that the Sykes and IARDC co-conspirators have taken. The guardianship act 755 ILCS 5/11a – 1 et seq, and in particular 3b, and 10 make it very clear that situations like Sykes, Gore, et al cannot and should not occur. On the Federal level 42 USCA 1983, 18 USCA 241, 242, 18 USCA 4, 18 USCA 375, 47 USCA 230 **** again outlaw the conduct of the miscreants and the IARDC.
Yes, the law is thwarted over and over again and the miscreants are handsomely paid with public money for their infamy. Yes, the miscreants are wrongfully protected by the Courts, court agencies, law enforcement, elected officials and others in authority way too often. Yes, government funds are used to support the miscreant’s War on the Elderly and the Disabled and yes it appears that government is ignoring one pernicious and unconscionable act after another. Some of us think that our government is rotten to the core and we are surrounded by such corruption that the quest for honor, honesty and fair play is hopeless. Many more of look at the scenario and believe that the situation is less extreme and given the right combination of events success in defeating the advocates of elder genocide is possible. I am proud to be in the latter group and to lend my name to the efforts to act within the law to bring Jerome Larkin ***** and all who act in concert with him, including, the public officials in Florida, Ohio, California, **** who have made growing old a dangerous situation to Justice.
Previously on many occasions I have as a citizen demanded that law enforcement do an HONEST investigation of the entire elder cleansing scandal. I’ve said (and meant it) – take nothing for granted, do not believe me or anyone else. Examine the facts yourself. If you find that the facts are as I am others have claimed, then bring the miscreants and all of them before the Bar of Justice.
Yes, I am aware that Attorney Denison, Attorney Amu, ***** and I have all been prosecuted by the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary commission and the Supreme Court of Illinois has found that this call for an HONEST investigation of the genocide, abuse, and exploitation of the elderly is so unethical that long multi=year suspensions are appropriate. Yes, I am aware that a lawyer who has little clout who actually abuses or exploits the elderly and the disabled (and breaches his fiduciary relationship) is not considered a threat to the public safety and if punished at all get a slap on the wrist.
In my half century in the practice of law I’ve recognized corruption in the judiciary of Cook County, Illinois and have fought it when it arose to threaten the rights of my clients. I dealt with some of the jurists who when to jail and/or had to resign because of the Operation Greylord scandal and I death with some of the jurists who escaped punishment. I am coping with the corrupt jurists, judicial officials’ et al who are engaged in the current scandal and I will continue to fight under my own name and stead to address this corruption. Certain First principles still prevail.
1) American Democracy depends on an HONEST and independent judiciary. What this means is that the trier of fact has to be not only knowledgeable, but willing to apply the facts to the law even if it is not politically correct. Thus, if a Dred Scott decision were to come before the Court we are looking for a judge to stand up and say that the word “All” means all. All includes people of color, people who are infirm, people who are old, people who are in our jurisdiction by accident etc. This also means that we want a judge who is not afraid to disagree with both you and me and the very same time. In addition we want a judge who will be so independent as to blaze a new trail if it is warranted by the facts and the law.
It should be noted that we have to first address issues of justice in the ‘lower courts’ as the Appellate process is limited and only in exceptional circumstances can one Court ‘second guess’ another. The rationale is to obtain an independent, honest and knowledgeable decision the litigants are going to have to accept some decisions that they feel are wrong. We want an honest judiciary and this means that some of the HONEST decisions will go against our position and have to be accepted by us.
In a perfect world there are no Judge Connors, Judge Stuarts, or similar judges who would overlook that lack of compliance with due process and the jurisdictional statutory compliances that occurred in the Mary Sykes case. In a perfect world no judge would ever have allowed the miscreants to prospect for Gold in the mouth of a 90 year old citizen.
Even the Court order of a corrupt jurist means something. When Judge Connors In the Mary Sykes case 09 P 4585 (Cook County) knowing she had no jurisdiction – because of the patent fact that 755 ILCS 5/11a – 10 had been intentionally violated by the two guardian ad litem, the guardian and her respective attorneys in every way possible including obviating a hearing, service of summons, service of prior notice, denial of representation entered an order finding Mary Sykes so incompetent to have every right and privilege forfeited that order was entitled to full faith and credit until it as properly addressed. That order even though entered without the required hearing was still meaningful. Yes, it was an inexcusable breach of the Judge’s duties and obligations, but, it was a governmental act.
It is also inexcusable that almost a decade has gone by and Law enforcement has allowed the miscreants to not only get away with their perfidy, but, they continue to ignore the law and reap the benefits of their disrespect for America’s core privilege. So obscene is the scenario that Larkin, the two guardians, the guardian, the attorney for the guardian and all who act in concert with them are even given immunity from paying the income taxes that all of the rest of us peons have to pay. Watch the government allow Mary’s million dollar home (which was sold a judicial sale for a fraction of its value to a crony of the miscreants) be sold at capital gains rates by the thieves. Watch as no one in government gets excited that another million dollars was stolen by Court appointed fiduciaries from a senior citizen and the appropriate taxes were never paid! Then turn on the television and listen to the political sponsors of this modern terrorism decry the need for more taxes to be assessed against the public to pay for this very type of government. No mention will be made that Larkin and his co-conspirators should have contributed as fair share of the deficit, if any.
2) It takes strength of character to stand up to government and disciplinary commissions that have the power to take away law licenses. It is no secret that Gloria Sykes employed a score of attorneys, and except for JoAnne Denison and myself every one of the attorneys has run to hide in the woods when the co-conspirators have called to threaten them. One even turned on her to save his own skin and *****. Pursuant to Attorney Rule 8.3 I have pointed out that Jerome Larkin, as his overt act in support of the Conspiracy of elder cleansing, has misused his office to attempt to silence both JoAnne and myself. The Cynthia Farenga letter attaching the copy of the Probate Sharks blog (publishing the demand for an Honest investigation) is stark evidence of the unholy relationship between the miscreant lawyers, corrupt jurists, corrupt judicial officials and corrupt public officials.
3) The money that is out there to thwart any attempt to rid the system of corruption is just short of incredible. The tie in to the corrupt health care industry and its huge clout with the political community is a real force and can literally destroy careers. Few political people will risk such an event. The industry has major money to invest in candidates, reward its friends, and punish its enemies. The 700 percent fraud sur charge that the industry charges all health care patients and payers funds a massive violation of civil rights. I observed in the Brewer case how the nursing homes literally elected an alderman in Chicago. The most qualified candidate had absolutely no chance even when he hired the most prestigious and most effective election helpers. It did not even matter that the incumbent was unpopular and polls indicated little support beyond the party faithful. Indeed, No one was and is interested. During the last election nursing homes transported their wards to polling places and made certain that each resident cast his/her vote for the “correct candidate. Early voting, motor voting, absentee voting, and non-ID voting make certain that the nursing home operator (member of the cabal) can deliver the votes to the candidate of his choice.
The money was readily available to payoff all the opposition and anyone who might make a difference. What is very troubling is the fact that much of money is paid directly by the government to the miscreants.
The proceeds that we receive are meager. The gratitude is microscopic. The success is fleeting, but, it is labor of love to get the word out and for me to every day I write an “essay” that alerts others to the issues and tries to raise the questions that must be asked’ I could not induce Jerome Larkin to apologize to an Icon of the Civil Rights movement (Diane Nash) for what appeared to be his intentional violation of her civil rights. (He refused her admittance to a public proceeding!) My personal failure is magnified as not a single media publication even mentioned the fact that a famous icon of the Civil Rights movement and promulgator of the Selma and Washington civil Rights movement was denied entry into a public hearing by Jerome Larkin. Such is frustrating but it does give me another legitimate complaint that one day I hope will be recognized for what it is, to wit: A repudiation of the Equal Rights doctrine by the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission and a clear and unequivocal statement of their rejection of the very oath that each attorney accepting employment as an attorney has taken.
I urge the near bankrupt governments to collect the income taxes legitimately due by each and every member of the conspiracy against the elderly and the disabled. As the fiscal problems become more and more intense it is my hope that our government will govern with an eye toward EQUALITY BEFORE THE LAW and not give special dispensations to the miscreants with clout who are preying on our elderly and disabled. A good start would be to MAKE JEROME LARKIN pay his Federal and State Income taxes in the same manner that government makes John and Mary Doe pay their taxes!
