Guardianship was not intended to be a predatory operation. Pursuant to statute it was intended to create the reasonable Americans With Disabilities Act accommodation further limited by reasonable necessity so that the Core values of America were not infringed on the Constitutional, and Civil Rights of all citizens was respected. What it has evolved into, thanks to corrupt jurists, corrupt lawyers, corrupt public figures, and a onus and venal campaign by 18 USCA 371, 18 USCA 242 coconspirators and the benign public and immunity is a cottage industry of elder cleansing, i.e. railroading a disabled person (usually a senior with a few dollars to be stolen) into a guardianship that isolates her from family, friends, and prior life so that she can be abused, exploited, and ultimately killed.
The guardianship is created by navigating a statute that is intended to provide a vehicle for a good person to provide aid to a disabled person only the extent that such aid is needed and does not infringe on Civil and human rights. It is a Buck vs. Bell situation gone wild. An individual having a family that harbors avarice is a suitable environment for elder cleansing. One member of the family can get the ball rolling and before he/she knows what is happening the corrupt lawyers, corrupt judges, corrupt judicial officials and their co-conspirators are in the picture.
In the Mary Sykes case the oldest daughter needed money. Mother’s $4000.00 was in sight, so she took it without permission. Mary made a fatal mistake. She went to the Cook County court system for help and sought an Order of Protection.
The Cook County Illinois court system is not known for its jurisprudence, but is known for it’s literally scores of judges who populate prisons, enjoy remunerations for favorable decisions to clouted individuals, and cover-up’s. In Greylord we had more than a score of judges who were jailed, several score lawyers, and a host of others. Recently we had two sitting governors in Federal custody. Thus, it was not a surprise that Mary’s Petition for an Order of Protection got transferred to the Probate Division where it disappeared as a corrupt jurist abdicated her responsibility and oath. The judge ignored all the Constitutional protections, the jurisdictional protections of the Statute, and every covenant of decency and honesty. She appointed two Guardian ad Litem who carefully guided the oldest daughter through the maze of probate court.
Mary was hustled out of her home, so that she could be segregated and deprived of access to her funds and legal representation. A facade of compliance with the Statute was undertaken. As Mary’s doctor refused to certify her as incompetent, one of the GALs recommended a compliant doctor. This doctor could be counted on to certify that the Pope is in need of a plenary guardian. A one act play of compliance with the service of process was instituted. Knowing Mary was held in DuPage County, the Sheriff of Cook County was directed to serve Mary in Cook County. As Mary was no longer in Cook County she could not be served. Thus, the miscreants asked for a special process server to be appointed. He also could not find Mary in Cook County. The corrupt jurist and the corrupt Probate authorities could care less!
To protect against such activities 14 days prior notice of hearing is required to be given to close (near) relatives. Of course this was not done, and more importantly there never was a hearing so as to protect against Mary Sykes’ loss of civil and human rights.
Thus, Mary was railroaded into a guardianship even though she was probably more competent than the judge appointing the plenary guardian . With the appointment the miscreants were free to ravage the estate and steal anything that was not nailed down. In addition they and non-visible co-conspirators were able to drug her so that she could be warehoused and maximum health care benefits could be obtained for co-conspiring health care providers, i.e. nursing homes, hospice facilities etc. When Mary’s usefulness ended she was disposed of. Millions of dollars were garnered by the miscreants and it was all legal – Judges signed Court orders!
The ‘game’ does not end with the death of the victim. It is my understanding that the health care providers continue to collect for up to x months after death for their services, and the government pays y% of the bill that cannot be collected from the Estate or under the Family expense acts. In addition the earned income from the theft is ignored by the tax authorities. Even outright tax fraud is ignored.
As an example: Mary Sykes’ home was prime development property. A bogus claim that money was needed to pay for Mary’s health care was made to the corrupt judge. The judge ordered the property sold and approved an appraisal that was far less than the value. Of course there were no purchasers and thus the judge approved a purchase that was approximately 20% of the fair value of the property. This 20% was awarded to the miscreants (Guardian ad Litems, attorney for the co-operating guardian) as attorney fees. The purchase was made by a nominee for the orchestrator of this elder cleansing program. After a series of mesne sales this theft will be reported to the Department of the Treasury as a capital gain. 9 will get you 900 that there will not even be an audit! The State of Illinois that is so broke that it cannot pay its bills will look the other way also. As Larkin put it to the Supreme Court – informing on this criminal activity is like yelling fire in a crowded theater!
 Important in the scheme is intimidating family members who are not compliant with the ‘elder cleansing.’ A pattern has emerged. In the Alice Gore case as an example, it appears that a daughter who objected to her mother’s elder cleansing was appointed plenary guardian with a surety bond. The miscreants = as co-conspirators= using their guile and expertise guided the daughter into some minor indiscretions, such as failing to file accountings on time and then hopped upon her and her bond. With a massive but totally inappropriate sanction a more favorable plenary guardian was appointed and 1.5 million dollars and 29 teeth disappeared not to be even mentioned.
The fraudulent preliminary preparations usually were sufficient to discourage even the most loyal family member to back off. In another case a sister was advised that she could purchase food for her brother and eat some of it – as the sister had no other source of income. An irate judge thought this a breach of fiduciary relationship, removed the sister as plenary guardian. Once removed the estate vanished and the sister’s complaints to law enforcement thwarted. The Helen Stone case stands as an illustration on just how venal these judicial criminals have become.
Thank you for this excellent article & for your resolute work in exposing these parasites feeding on the life’s-blood of our older generation who can’t protect themselves and know how life should be lived and know about the laws that once were viable.
Never knew of this. It is so outrageous and so close to home. Our country depends on upright attorneys like you and brave people speaking out and standing strong.The mainstream media is silent.
My deepest Sympathy to Mary’s daughter, Gloria Jean and to all those who have been horribly victimized and ARE NOW being victimized by the Courts of Cook the Books County, Illinois.
May Justice finally reach down to those morally-crippled Judges who have lost their integrity, are bought off & trashing their oaths of office and our God-given Rule of Law, trashing old people in Probate Court & the innocent children & their innocent parents & families in Family Court.
To Dear Ones being victimized now ~ Tie a knot at the end of your rope and HANG ON. It doesn’t feel like it but God is FOR YOU. He is the Best Judge and He is for you, the underdog.The majority of Americans are for you. “It is time for you to act, O LORD, for they have regarded Your law as void.” Ps. 119:126.
Love & Prayers.
Thanks for your vote of support. It’s always difficult to be the whistleblower when the psychopaths and sociopaths reign over us. Please send me anything you have to post. These courtroom corruption victims need and deserve our help and dedication to Truth and Justice
Yes, they deserve our help and support.This might help somebody ~ I hope.
Early on, enter the many, many uniqueYoutube videos by Sam Vaknin, especially ~ Narcisist in Court and Litigation.
These videos opened my eyes to their evil and gave me hope. “It is very easy,” he says, ” to break a narcissist, even a well-trained and well-prepared one….”
He ought to know…he is a self-confessed narcissist.
I have read both pros and cons about him. I hope he has taken his own advice.
