From Ken Ditkowsky — Elder abuse, the Ultimate Betrayal

From Ken Ditkowsky;
JoAnne – you and we disciplined by the Illinois Supreme Court for pursuant to Rule 8.3 and our First Amendment Rights asking for an HONEST investigation of the corrupt judges, corrupt lawyers, corrupt judicial officials and corrupt public officials who were carrying on a WAR AGAINST THE ELDERLY AND THE DISABLED.   It looks like out persistence and refusal to attorn to the intimidation meted out by Mr. Larkin and his 18 USCA 371 and 18 USCA 242 co-conspirators is paying off.
A lawyer who I’ve known for about a decade, approached me this morning to inform me that Consumer Reports had a bunch of articles this month dealing with Elder abuse/exploitation.   The treatment of the subject was benign, but at the very least it was a recognition that there is a serious problem.    The corrupt judicial aspect of the problem does not appear to be the focus of the articles, but, if an when law enforcement efficaciously investigates the problem they will connote the role of the corrupt lawyer whether he be judge, disciplinary official, appointee, judicial official or guardian appointed by a Court.    (I did not specify corrupt court, as even judges involved in these wrongful guardianships can be duped.   The perfidy of the GAO in the Gore case is so extreme that her being a practicing lawyer is dumbfounding.   (the prospecting for gold in Alice Gore’s mouth, the removal of 29 teeth, and the harvesting of the gold blows my mind.   Any lawyer who can participate in such a crime against humanity ****).
An article was able to retrieve states:

The ultimate betrayal

Tabloid coverage of the Brooke Astor case helped raise awareness of elder financial abuse.
The New York Post called it the “swindle trial.” Jurors likened it to a “Shakespearean tragedy.” When New York socialite Anthony D. Marshall was convicted of defrauding and stealing from his elderly mother, philanthropist Brooke Astor, reports detailed how he conspired with lawyer Francis Morrissey to amend her will in his favor, took millions without her consent, and lifted paintings from her walls while she languished in her Park Avenue home. The trial painted a portrait of greed and filial neglect. Both men were sentenced to one to three years in prison and are currently out pending appeal.
Elsie Brooks’s lifestyle was a world apart from Astor’s, but their stories are tragically similar. When she was 72 she sold her mobile home and moved in with her daughter and granddaughter in Monterey, Calif. She decided she didn’t want to deal with her finances any longer and let the two take control. But her daughter, Lisa Karen MacAdams, and granddaughter, Christi Schoenbachler, drained Brooks of jewelry, furniture, and an annuity worth almost $90,000, and abandoned her at a nursing facility, according to court documents. They were convicted of grand theft and financial elder abuse, both felonies, and two counts of misdemeanor elder abuse. Last summer, a California appeals court stayed one of Schoenbachler’s misdemeanor charges.
Elder financial abuse is “the ultimate betrayal,” says Colleen Toy White, a superior court judge in Ventura County, Calif., who sees roughly 40 cases of such abuse each month. “It’s shocking to see how vulnerable the elder person is.”
We’ve told you about scams by strangers, among them fraudulent sweepstakes phone calls and investments, and grandparent scams (“Scamnation!,” October 2012 issue). Far more insidious are deceptions by neighbors, friends, employees, and relatives—the very people entrusted to care for and protect seniors.
Such abuse can be financially and emotionally devastating. And experts say it’s likely to increase because of a stalled economy and an aging population. Awareness is rising thanks to cases such as Astor’s. Yet because seniors might not recognize when it happens to them or are too ashamed to speak, the crime lurks largely out of sight.
For more tips, read the Consumer Reports Retirement Guide.
In a randomized New York telephone survey released in 2011, for instance, seniors mentioned being victims of financial exploitation more frequently than any other type of abuse. Yet the study estimated that only 1 in 44 incidents of financial elder abuse is officially documented.

“Nearly every time I lecture on financial abuse, people will approach me with their personal stories,” says Elizabeth Loewy, a Manhattan assistant district attorney and lead prosecutor on the Marshall case. “They will talk to me about their grandmother, aunt, or neighbor, usually a senior with cognitive issues, who had ‘this problem.’ And it’s like a light will go on, and they’ll ask, ‘So this could be a crime?’ ”

Imagine for the moment what Alice Gore, Helen Stone, Carol Wyman, Mary Sykes et al all felt as they were being elder cleansed.    Mary Sykes was no incompetent and no shrink so testified prior to the guardian was appointed to abuse, exploit her, and separate her from her liberty and property.    Each of the corrupt attorneys involved in the case was fully aware of the criminal activity.   The Judge knew or should have known that she never held a hearing and had a file before her in which fraud was patent and no jurisdiction had been obtained.    Everyone involved knew the score including Mary, her daughters, her friends, the members of her church etc BUT  because of Jerome Larkin’s participation in the ‘coverup’ Mary died without vindication or Justice.

The amount of money that was garnered by the miscreants was more than sufficient incentive for one of the guardian ad litem to panic when she saw in the blog “probate sharks” a reiteration of JoAnne and my calls for an HONEST INVESTIGATION.     It was no real surprise that Lea Black and Jerome Larkin felt the need to try to intimidate me into silence with disciplinary proceedings and it was a foregone conclusion that when JoAnne Denison took up the torch and published the Call for Justice on her blog that her license to practice law in Illinois was doomed.    Larkin and his band of co-conspirators could never allow any HONEST investigation of the elder cleansing scandal as it applied to Mary Sykes, Alice Gore, Carol *****.    
How does a senior protect himself or herself?     Unless the tax man collects the State and Federal Income taxes due from Larkin and his 18 UsCA 137 group; or unless there is a vigorous and public prosecution of Larkin and his 18 USCA 137 group there is no way.   Appearing before a corrupt judge who is profiting by the elder cleansing (directly or indirectly) is a vain act.   Writing to frightened elected officials who are afraid to mention the word “elder cleansing” in the same sentence with the names of any of the co-conspirators gets us nothing.

From Michael Volpe–an excellent book on corruption in the courts

My review for Amazon:

Michael Volpe’s Book on Chris Mackney–describes court corruption in amazing detail.

I have just finished Mr. Volpe’s book on court corruption, and in particular the experiences of Mr. Chris Mackney-as he worked his way through a highly troubled divorce with a ex-wife with an interesting family secret that came out during his own internet research: it was there he discovered that his wealthy father in law had been convicted of murder, had likely been involved in much more criminal activity, and his ex-wife conveniently forgot to tell him during their long marriage.

As a result, the father-in-law, a Mr. Scamardo (what an apropos name), went to great lengths to fund a divorce for $1.2 million which of course involved dozens of failures of the court to simply follow the law, set reasonable child support for the father and a fair co-parenting schedule. What happened instead was a complete nightmare leading to his own suicide when judgments against him ended up for over $100,000.  Mr. Mackney never in fact did receive his share of equity in the marital residence which would have wiped out the debt; instead he continually struggled to fend off multiple unfair motions, one after the other.  His ex-wife had him arrested and jailed four times.  Once she and her attorney claimed attempted extortion when, after multiple attempts to reduce his child support to a level he could afford, he threatened to go to the media if it wasn’t reduced.  He spent 3 months in jail awaiting trial, only to have the jury acquit him of extortion, deciding that child support is for the child so no money could be extorted from the ex-wife.

During the overly litigious divorce, the extreme motion practice of his ex-wife cost him his job and all future job prospects.  One job was lost when Mrs. Mackney went and tried to depose his boss.  That was the end of that job.

Mr. Mackney’s child support was based on an old tax return when he happened to make over $250,000 for the year as a Realtor in 2007, at the height of the real estate boom–something he never did before, or after that year.  But the child support was set at $2,800 per month year after year and the court refused his many motions to decrease it at any time, even after Mr. Mackney lost his job, had no income and his ex-wife continually hounded him in court and harassed him outside the courtroom.

There are great descriptions of many of the lengths his ex-wife went to engaging in deception, trickery, parental alienation, describing him as mentally ill, when he clearly was not.

Mr. Mackney lost his custody rights when he failed to fax in one receipt to the court–he simply forgot or was confused.

Of course, all of Mrs. Mackney’s sins were always forgiven by the court.

Mr. Mackney, for most of the divorce proceedings, was forced to attend court pro se because he had no income and no attorney.  In addition, “professionals” assigned to the case always sided with the wife, because, as many of you already know, he who pays gets the total cooperation from any professional assigned to the case and will attack the less wealthy litigant, engaging in slander, libel, false light and defamation, unless and until the appropriate fees are paid.  Make no mistake, there are court appointed experts that can be bought and who can change their testimony for the highest bidder and most prompt payer.

The book is a very interesting read and I highly recommend it for those going through, or might possibly face, a contentious and overly litigious proceeding with someone hell bent on utter destruction of their ex.  Utter destruction of a spouse, parental alienation, Legal Abuse Syndrome, suicide by men during divorce and other concepts of outrageous unjust litigation are aptly identified and discussed.

Highly recommended.  Thank you Mr. Volpe for bringing this to the attention of the public, and more particularly those who are in need of your expertise and analysis to protect them.  The book is interesting and well written.  The emails of Mr. Mackney during all his troubles and tribulations were preserved by Mr. Volpe and they are republished at the end of the book.  The ex-wife somehow was able to wrest a copyright registration out of the court, and she then went on a campaign of unconstitutional gag orders to remove all derogatory information about her and her ex-husband from the internet.

Subject: Re: Fw: Bullet points on Larkin

It is a shame that these stories are repeated over and cover again.   It is a bigger shame that Law Enforcement does not take the BULL by the horns and put these bastards out of business.     In each of these cases we have to address the issues of due process even before we can get into the issues of breach of fiduciary relationship.
That solved problem for her.    The Attorney Disciplinary commission did not have to go that far – they just clairvoyantly made up the facts that were missing.    In my proceeding acknowledging that the prior notifications were not provided and the Supreme Court of Illinois ruled that they were jurisdictional — THIS FACT MAKING THE PROCEEDINGS A LIE — they just said that the family had knowledge of the hearing and therefore there was no need for notice.
They forgot one fact!    There had been no hearing, so having knowledge of the fact was impossible.
Do not confuse me with the facts – I’ve made up my mind is the credo of the Illinois Disciplinary Commission under the ‘cover up’ administration of Jerome Larkin and the Illinois Supreme Court.
If you remember – as kids we played a game of treasure hunt:     Let’s have a treasure hunt in each of the cases:   For me let’s do it in Sykes:
Find the following in the Mary Sykes file 09 P 4585:
1) Summons that complies with that required in 755 ILCS 5/11a – 10.
2) Return of summons properly verified by a Sheriff’s deputy.
3) Notice 14 days prior to hearing on Mary Sykes’ competency addressed and served on either of Mary Sykes two siblings or her younger daughter.
4) Any indication that a single word of testimony was taken as to Mary Sykes’ competency.
None of these items exist!     Thus, every dime taken in the Mary Sykes case has been obtained by theft!    Every judge who signed an order in this case is a co-conspirator in the criminal activity.    Every effort at cover – up is a criminal activity and a disbarment offense.
JoAnne Denison and I, as ordinary citizens, asked for an HONEST INVESTIGATION – instead we got suspensions of our law licenses.   You and others like you complained in your respect States and you received abuse and loss of your inheritances.     AT THE VERY LEAST THE MISCREANTS OUGHT TO PAY THE FEDERAL AND STATE INCOME TAXES!
From Joanne;
And Ken, I would like to have you note for the record that NONE of the Kids for Cash judges was granted immunity for their roles in corrupting the Pennsylvania judicial system.  They’re all in prison for 15 to 30, and all the lawsuits filed by children and their parents will result in judgments against them.  It’s only fair and just.  Kids went to prison for years over things such as throwing gravy, food fights, shouting obscenities at adults,–one kid even went there because he criticized the school administration on his own blog! Talk of the injustices.  Many of these kid’s lives werer ruined, they did not go to college or even finish high school and many still live in terror and will not leave their home. They fear police, the schools and most adults.  I don’t blame them.
In many ways the Disableds for Cash program is the same.  They are put in locked down nursing homes, drugged against their will (Wyman, Frake, etc.), they never see the light of day (Spera) and their homes are sold at deep discounts to cronies and real estate investment companies (Sykes, Wyman-attempted), many are put in highly abusive situations (Frake, Sykes, Wyman, etc.) and for them death is the only way out, narcotized to death when the money runs out (Drabik, Richards, Tyler, Gore, Baker, etc.)  Soooo many people read and like the blog and can identify with it, hundreds of views per day, plus the other blogs, this is a situation that will eventually explode, as you said, in many ways it is far worse than Greylord which just involved DUI’s and penny ante traffic tickets.
This involves the hundreds of millions ushered via Probate Court every year, and there are many nefarious undertakings which surface–which Jerome Larkin will cover up in a second to protect cronies.

New FBI Agent in Charge of FBI — Michael Anderson with a degree in accountancy and white collar crime

from the FBI website press release:

Michael J. Anderson Named Special Agent in Charge of Chicago Division

Washington, D.C. September 21, 2015
  • FBI National Press Office (202) 324-3691

Director James B. Comey has named Michael J. Anderson special agent in charge (SAC) of the FBI’s Chicago Division. Mr. Anderson most recently served as SAC of the New Orleans Division since 2012.

Mr. Anderson began his career as a special agent with the FBI in July 1995. He first reported to the Miami Division, where he investigated public corruption, including a juror bribery case involving a continuing criminal enterprise that imported more than 75 tons of cocaine into the Miami metropolitan area.

In 2001, he was promoted to a supervisory special agent position in the Public Corruption Unit of the Criminal Investigation Division, where he served as the FBIHQ liaison to numerous investigations, involving judicial, law enforcement, contract, regulatory, municipal, and congressional corruption.

Later that year, Mr. Anderson reported to the Washington Field Office to supervise investigations into public corruption, government fraud, and civil rights. During his tenure, he supervised the investigation of super-lobbyist Jack Abramoff and Louisiana Congressman William Jefferson.

In 2006, Mr. Anderson returned to the Public Corruption Unit at FBIHQ as its chief. In this role, he oversaw the Hurricane Fraud Initiative to address Katrina-related public corruption and government fraud, and he launched the International Contract Corruption Initiative (ICCI) targeting Iraq reconstruction-related fraud and corruption. The ICCI eventually evolved into a permanent unit in the Criminal Investigative Division.

In 2007, Mr. Anderson reported to the Dallas Division as an assistant special agent in charge overseeing intelligence, public corruption, white-collar crime, civil rights, covert operations, and the foreign language program.

Mr. Anderson returned to FBI Headquarters in January 2011 as the chief of the Employee Services Section in the Human Resources Division. Among other duties, he oversaw the FBI’s performance appraisal and management system, awards, payroll and benefits, retirements, the on-boarding new employees program, and the Human Resources Division service center.

In July 2012, Mr. Anderson reported to the New Orleans Division, where he oversaw all FBI operations for the state of Louisiana. Notable successful investigations involved the Deepwater Horizon environmental disaster; former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin; and the Harvey Hustlers, a notorious neighborhood-based violent gang.

Before joining the FBI, Mr. Anderson received a bachelor’s degree in accounting from the University of Iowa and was employed by KPMG. He also received a Juris Doctor degree from Southwestern University in Los Angeles. He is a certified public accountant and attorney.

Mr. Anderson is a native of Alexandria, Minnesota and is married with one daughter.

Mr. Anderson reports to Chicago in mid-October.

From JOanne

Sounds like this guy might be perfect to clean up both probate court and the ARDC with his degree in accountancy he will be well aware of the tax penalties for criminal activity at both the state and federal level, and he will also be aware that often attorneys, judges and court connected service providers can rip off, endanger and even murder (Sykes, attempted Carol Wyman, Gore, Drabik, Jaycocx, Richards, etc.)

I hope we can at least get autopsies and tox screens for all seniors  that die when the money runs out, such as Sykes, Baker, etc.

In NC it has come to my knowledge – I, went,called, emailed, mail, info. to the AG Roy Cooper-  10 or 11 times to be completely ignored – I have just learned that Roy Coopers wife – was also an appointed guardian – SO,that is why he would not take my info.  you see, these kinds of little quite things leak out over time-

I don’t know How you consider this to be better care than what he was receiving at his Home!! 

So Far he has had,
1. 4 falls 
2. 1 hospital visit
3. weight loss 
4. no exercise 
5. no outside fresh air 
6. no physical therapy
7. teeth with nothing was done
8. personal items missing
9. $5000.00 hearing aid missing now
10, multiple bruises
11. burst blood vessel in his eye
12. anxiety attacks
13. high blood pressure

15. stressed out of being there
16. several missed appointments from Va. 

17. Va. called me and said you missed several of Dad’s appointments, Heather
   all in 3 weeks

My Dad and I prefer that he be allowed to stay with Dr. Dunlap who has been his physician for 41 years!   He is fully aware of my Dad’s blood disease!!.

These are the exact words from my father to me every time I visit; “I AM VERY UNHAPPY MAN and I WANT TO GO HOME, I might as well die, if, I have to live in here, life is no fun any more, I was POW once,  why again ”  

Not to mention my on going concerns of sanitary conditions of the facility!

Heather, you being an employee of  Aging Family Services as appointed medical guardian’s by the court, are responsible for my father’s well being and his best interest!!!

Every time I hear or see this, it makes me SICK, especially since I am only allowed to visit Dad from 1 Pm to 2 Pm daily with supervised visit. By the way, no one explained to me why I am allowed to visit my father for only one hour. And, furthermore, why did I not receive a personal phone call from you last Thursday and, again, today  when my father fell, instead of email messages.

Ginny:   Your criticism is well taken; however, it would be unconscionable to give public servants, like Jerome Larkin, who pervert their public trust even a moment of a breather.   The quest for Justice must proceed at full force and effect until Larkin and his co-conspirators find the ‘cover up’ of the elder cleansing scandal is no longer profitable.
Subject:   Way is Jerome Larkin such a focal point in the fight to destroy the cottage industry of ‘elder cleansings.’
Ms. Johnson, you are absolutely correct.    I am boring people with my concentration of the criminal activities of Jerome Larkin, the Administrator of the Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission.  Your criticism is well taken.      However, I am not obsessed with him, it is just that he is the focal point of the cabal of corruption that is the ‘cancer’ attacking the heart of Rule of Law.
Please allow me to explain.    Jerome Larkin was not forced at gun point to become the Administrator of the Illinois Attorney *** Disciplinary Commission (IARDC).     His salary is quite substantial as are the responsibilities that he undertook.    In addition as an attorney he took a very serious oath to defend the Constitution of the United States of America and the State of Illinois.    The people he supervises and acts in concert with all have similar backgrounds.    No one is under any compulsion.   The criminal acts that they participate in by either performing them or being 18 USCA 242 or 18 USCA 371 co-conspirators are all voluntary associations.
When a citizen, such as Gloria Sykes, Barbara Stone, Dr. Sam Sugar, you or I make a complaint to a lawyer disciplinary commission, the aforesaid complaint is not a nuisance or inconvenience, it represents a serious attempt by a citizen to address the fact that some lawyer is being accused of a serious miscreant act.   That act might be criminal, it might be unethical, or it might be just a misunderstanding, but nevertheless it is not a ‘joke’ nor an inconvenience.     The lawyer disciplinary board or commission is a bastion promulgated to protect the public from dishonest judicial figures.
Unfortunately, at least in Illinois, and probably in just about every other State, corruption has crept into the process and dishonest and corrupt lawyers, judges, and judicial officials   have crept into the system and turned into a fiefdom designed to protect the aforesaid dishonest individuals.     Jerome Larkin has distinguished himself in his quest to destroy and assault the Bill of Rights and the Core values of American democracy.    
Using the Sykes case 09 P 4585 (Cook County, Illinois) as an example it is apparent that in 2009 (and maybe before) Gloria Sykes contacted the IARDC and sought their assistance in obviating the obvious corruption that was being promulgated in the Courtroom of the Honorable M Connors.    The victims of this perfidy were primarily Mary Sykes, but collaterally Gloria Sykes.     NB.   It should be noted that whether you are fond of Mary Sykes and Gloria Sykes, or enjoy a profound dislike for either of them, both are citizens and entitled to the full faith and credit of the Law and all the protections thereof.     The law is blind, deaf and dumb as to personality of the litigants.
The complaint to the IARDC similarly was not something to be taken lightly or discriminately.     The complaint was a warning shot that there was a cancer in the Court room of Judge Connors and if not extricated it would pervert the cause of Justice.    Unfortunately, the public servants at the IARDC were ‘wired’ and like some many of the victims and family members of elder cleansing victims the public employees at the IARDC did not look upon their duties as a ‘call to arms’ to protect the public, but, as a means to in some way obtain a benefit from the abuse, isolation, and exploitation of the elderly and disabled victims.
The case is reported to have been assigned to Attorney Lea Black.     Attorney Black is another of the overpaid cadre of attorneys administered by and supervised by Jerome Larkin.    The attorneys employed in Cook County, Illinois usually obtain their jobs through some form of clout.   The prime jobs are with the US Attorney’s office.     The lower tier jobs are with the IARDC and similar organizations and while the lawyers are overpaid their prospects for the future are muted.     Thus, even though the responsibility is awesome the prestige is minimal.    
We have to assume that Ms. Black did her job and that she was supervised by Jerome Larkin.    Thus when she obtained her assignment she did a Rule 137 investigation.    This meant that she went to the Court house and pulled the Mary Sykes file 09 P 4585.     If she did this were would have followed a protocol:
1.       Jurisdiction.  755 ILCS 5/11a – 10.      In order to obtain jurisdiction it is axiomatic the affected party has to be served with summons.   Sheriff Dart and the file both attest to the fact that Mary Sykes was not served with summons or the complaint as required by the statute.    Thus, there was no jurisdiction.   However:
                                                                  i.      As we are dealing with an alleged disabled person, to meet the Notice and Hearing requirement of due process some competent person has to be notified in order to make certain that Mary Sykes was not railroaded into a guardianship and the loss of her liberty and property.    The statute requires a 14 day prior notice to close or near family members such as siblings, children et al.     Ms. Black would have seen immediately that no such PRIOR  notice had ever been afforded either sibling or Mary’s younger daughter.    Thus, as such is jurisdictional the second criteria to establish jurisdiction was ignored.
                                                                ii.      The statute provides for a waiver of jurisdiction under certain circumstances – which are not found in this case.     A look at the file reveals pro-active fraud on the Court by the petitioner which of course was ignored.   It appears that the Sheriff was directed to serve Mary Sykes at her home in Chicago; however, Guardian Cynthia Farenga in a letter to the court pointed out that Mary Sykes had been spirited off to Naperville, Illinois and the guardian was instructing the Sheriff to serve Mary at a location that the plenary guardian applicant knew she was not.    In fact, Mary was being held as a prisoner at the plenary guardian applicant home in Naperville, Illinois.
[Thus as a Matter of Law there was no jurisdiction and the obvious Fraud negated any waiver.}
2.       Hearing.    The second prong of due process is the fact that there has to be a hearing.     The file discloses that there was no hearing as to Mary’s competency, and Guardian ad Litem Adam Stern wrote to Gloria Sykes an e-mail wherein he admits that indeed, there was no hearing.    The hearing was obviated by Stern, Farenga, and the Attorney for plenary guardian drafting an order, which the corrupt jurist duly rubber stamped.        
Mary Sykes was thus ‘railroaded’ into a wrongful guardianship and her citizen forfeited.    All of this is in the public record.     (I tried to subpoena the Court file, and was denied – the file by itself demonstrates the wrongful conduct of the two guardian ad litem and the attorneys for the plenary guardian who have and continue to perpetrate a ‘fraud on the court.’    
All of the forgoing is part of the public record and is conclusive as to criminal conduct occurring in the Circuit Court of Cook County.    All of the foregoing was known or should have been known to Attorney Black, Jerome Larkin and every one of the individual lawyers, jurists, and judicial officials involved in any way in the Mary Sykes case.     Jerome Larkin and the IARDC were requested to do an HONEST INVESTIGATION into the matter.     Instead, each elected to act in concert with the two guardian ad litem, the wrongfully appointed plenary guardian, her attorneys and the various judges assigned to the case.     The object of their conspiracy was to:   1) elder cleanse Mary, 2) obfuscate any protections that citizens might be entitled to, and 3) intimidate any source of protest.
The Larkin experience is so obscene, reprehensible, and so venal that it is mandatory for every lawyer to publicize his breach of the public trust loudly and often.     The assault on the Bill of Rights and the Constitution is at the level of terrorism.    White Collar crimes such as Larkins are more devastating to a free society that blowing up “World Trade Centers.”     Larkin teaching ethics to lawyers is an oxymoron, but nevertheless an insult to the public conscience.
The foregoing is not the half of it!     The Mary Sykes case is not a lone case in the wilderness.     It is one of hundreds that Larkin and his gang at the IARDC are covering up.      Another prime example of Larkin’s total amorality is the Alice Gore case.     Therein, he and his cronies covered up the theft of 80 pound of Silver coins and a gold prospecting venture in Alice Gore’s mouth.     The guardian ad litem who orchestrated this holocaust like activity roams the 18th Floor of the Daley Center polluting the Justice system with every step.   She is a heroine!      She is a master at ‘elder cleansing’ and of course she also teaches legal ethics.
The success of the IARDC and Larkin in their intimidation efforts is spectacular.    The Supreme Court of Illinois rubber stamps violations of the RULE OF LAW with impunity.     This most recently occurred in the JoAnne Denison case.     The subversion of the Rule of Law was hailed by the ABA in an article in their journal!     There was no outrage and no call for a hue and cry.
Indeed, as long as the legal profession tolerates the abrogation of its function and the dissipation of the Rights, Privileges and Immunities of Americans I cannot and will not remain silent.    As Larkin is the lynch pin of the cover-up of the corruption in Illinois his role has to spread of record.      Every day he appears to generate a new outrage that must be addressed – and I am here (hear) to make as many people aware as possible.      The man (Larkin) is the axis of the conspiracy in Illinois and he being hauled before the Bar of Justice is lynch pin of abrogating this particular ISIS assault on America.
NB.    As Illinois is almost bankrupt, it would be very nice if the Attorney General’s office representing the Illinois Department of Revenue would collect from Mr. Larkin and each of his co-conspirators the taxes, interest, and penalties generated by their participation in the conspiracy.    It would be a feather in her (AG Madigan) to at the very least obtain the State of Illinois portion of the booty stolen from countless senior citizens and disabled people.

From Ken Ditkowsky–ALM is taking nominations for White Collar Crime Fighters

I would be glad to nominate anyone that sends me a short synopsis of your personal fight for truth and justice in probate or other areas of the Court System.

Tell me about how you are running a blog, writing or have written a book, have filed pleading after pleading to enforce rights against a corrupt system and I will nominate.

This is our chance to get recognition which is currently nearly impossible because the court connected and appointed attorneys threaten everyone with litigation all the time and engage is slander, libel, defamation and false light.

See below and thanks Ken, for passing this along.

The fight against White Collar Crime was indeed changed.   In fact it has been lost!
If you read the American Bar Journal post of last week concerning the suspension of JoAnne Denison you have have immediate recognition of exactly what I am pointing out.
As a citizen and as an attorney, JoAnne Denison is entitled to all the privileges and immunities of citizenship.   This right includes the right to comment in a negative manner as to any elected official including a judge.   The right is about as broad and unlimited (subject to defamation laws as you can get).   In fact the recent Supreme Court of the United States cases have given new teeth to the right.
All attorneys when they obtain their licenses to practice are required to take an oath to defend and honor the Constitution.   In essence this is a promise to follow the Rule of Law, act honorably and at the very least tell the truth to the Court.
One of the most serious white collar crimes is the crime that isolates, abuses, exploits or otherwise abrogates the civil rights of the elderly and the disabled.   Preying on the elderly and the disabled for profit (breach of fiduciary relationship) is one of the lowest endeavors of white collar crime imaginable.    However, it is also one of the most common and one of the most protected.    In fact attorneys who complain about specific instances of this white collar criminal activity (elder cleansing) are punished by long suspensions of their law licenses.   Forget about lawyer rule 8.3.   Reporting the crime causes disciplinary action and in the case of Attorney Grant Goodman FRCP 11 sanctions.
JoAnne Denison reported in her blog (protected by 47 USCA 230) the abuse, isolation, exploitation and the theft of several million dollars in assets from the Mary Sykes estate 09 P4585 (Cook County).    She also reported other similar criminal endeavors, and along with yours truly demanded an Honest investigation.
Jerome Larkin the administrator of the Illinois attorney disciplinary commission (I ARDC) is thus is the lawyer I would nominate.    Larkin and his gang of 18 UsCA 242 and 18 USCA 173 co-conspirators rigged a facade of kangaroo hearings first to intimidate in frighten lawyers not to speak out, and then when the words and phrases started to be echoed by many in the public discipline the lawyers who spoke out.    The First Amendment was abrogated and here in Illinois the Supreme Court of Illinois not only disciplined attorney Denison for speaking out in accordance with 18 USCA 4, 430 ILCS 20/4,**** and her moral duty on an interim basis but as the ABA pointed out in its recent article – gave her a 3 year suspension.
The ABA has done its part also in protecting white collar criminals.   It has not raised a scintilla of protest!    It is demonstrated the the professional associations that have been created by laws are not only impotent but apparently disinterested in the Civil Rights of its members.   The ‘cover up’ created by Larkin and his 18 USCA 371 (242) co-conspirators has been so effective that the ‘elder cleansing’ has become a National scandal and a criminal enterprise that rivals the Gulags, and North Korean justice.
Larkin and his co-conspirators also are leaders in the promulgation of tax evasion.   You of course are aware that breach of a fiduciary relationship is a taxable event, and the bounty (booty) obtained is taxable income.   It appears that Larkin has not included dime one on his Illinois ethics statement and we have it on good authority that his 1040 does not disclose it either.
As Larkin and his co-conspirators are getting away with their white collar activities of coverup and fraud in violation of Federal and State law  – and government turns the other cheek – they deserve nomination.    Moral behavior may be totally lacking, but their success and continued exploitation and elder cleansing of senior citizens and disabled people speaks for itself.

From Ken Ditkowsky–on being quiet while others undergo extreme injustices

To: Janet Phelan <>
Subject: Line in the sand
Date: Sep 26, 2015 5:47 PM
I sat quietly and politely as I was railroaded, as Lanre Amu was railroaded, as Diane Nash was denied access to public accommodations, as Gloria Sykes was denied reasonable accommodation, and as dozens of senior citizens were abused, exploited and deprived of their civil rights.   Oh – I made a little noise, but, by in large *****.
The suspension of JoAnne Denison for the admitted basis of exercising her First Amendment Rights has crossed the line in the sand.   This action by the conscience of the legal profession transcends decency and any claim to adhering to the Rule of Law.   It is a direct attack on every liberty interest that America hold dear.    The action is akin to blowing up the Trade Center in New York.   No act of terrorism could be as venal as using State of Illinois/public money to advance the interests of criminals in black robes and lawyer clothes who are proactively engaging in a War against the Elderly and the Disabled. (Elder Cleansing).
There are few acts that a government or public official can perform that comes close to the perfidy and infamy that is illustrated by the suspension of Ms. Denison for exercising her First Amendment Rights.
So do I intend to do about it?    I noticed another blog – “Ugly Judge”   There must be hundred of them.   My computer skills are that of a dinosaur so getting the word out and alerting others that we have right here in America a movement that is dedicated to destroying our liberty – especially if we are old, disabled, or vulnerable (and have a dollar or two in our jeans).
Janet – I noticed that “Ugly Judge” had a piece concerning the alleged nefarious activities of Melody Scott  – how do I get that blog and others to expose the criminal elder cleansing that the media refuses to disclose?   The face of the enemy is still a nameless, faceless bureaucrat who we have on information and reasonable belief the name JEROME LARKIN.  
This criminal Civil Rights violation perpetrated upon JoAnne Denison must be a matter of public knowledge so people can choose whether North Korean democracy or the prior America democracy is to be ours!
For the record – I wish I was being over dramatic – but when the Supreme Court of Illinois rubber stamps an assault on Article 1 of the Illinois Constitution and the Bill of Rights we have some real trouble!    When the ABA reports the criminal civil rights violation and does nothing – we have more than real trouble.  *****
