What is most disturbing about the kidnapping of the homeless people by one or more of the nursing home moguls so as to warehouse them at health care expense is the fact that last night after midnight I remembered that I had been told about this scenario before (including the involvement of the Illinois public guardian’s office) and dismissed it as tooooooo bizarre.    It was in my mind in the same category as Aliens in New Mexico.   I do not know if my giving it more credibility would have saved some lives – but, *****.
Unfortunately,  I know that ME actually did hire thugs – these same thugs beat up a client of mine.  I sued ME on behalf of the client and he paid a substantial settlement.   Thus, with MS orchestrating the gold mining expedition in Alice Gore’s teeth and the fact that Gore’s family did not find out about her death for an extended time after her death the pattern is not only confirmed but cemented by an admission that ME made to the Coopers.  He actually bragged to them that he did the terrible things ‘because he could!’     
NOw lets add up the score.   Why and What is Jerome Larkin so frightened of by an HONEST INVESTIGATION?    Why the hue and cry raised against you when you exposed some of the antics of the public guardian’s office?   Did certain of the favored corrupt attorneys harbored in the Sykes case have ties to the public guardian’s office?   Why was Larkin’s 18 USCA 371 group so upset by my writing to the Attorney General of the United States?    Why was your blog equated to yelling fire in a crowded theater?    Why are state mandated ethics statements not filed by Larkin?    
Even with a mountain of evidence of fraud presented Larkin, he doggedly continues his cover=upwhen he could join the chorus of angels by the simple act of calling up the States Attorney to look into the averments of Gloria Sykes, Beverly Cooper, John Wyman, the two Mary’s etc.   All he had to do was make a gesture!    Yet, he and the IARDC doubled down on the cover-up with their prosecution of both you and me.   The misrepresentation of the Alvarez case coupled with the equating the disclosure of judicial corruption with yelling fire in a theater was very telling and an admission of Larkin’s overt conspiratorial acts promulgating the elder cleansing crimes of elder abuse, isolation, exploitation, kidnapping and homicide!
Yes – please publish this information!     Let’s get these averments out there and let’s make it harder for the dishonest nursing home moguls to kidnap their clientele!      Let’s start taking the profit out of elder cleansing!   Most importantly – let’s put some pressure on the Illinois Department of Revenue to collect the joint and several taxes, interest and penalties that Mr. Larkin and his co-conspirators owe on the Medicare/Medicaid/Social Security/Hospice  frauds.
(NB.  We now know why the delay in the IARDC taking Mr. Gillman’s law license!)

Subject:   Kidnapping of the homeless and incarceration of the same in nursing homes
During my most recent and continued investigation of the elder cleansing scandal I interviewed a former member of the cabal that manages and operates some of the most disreputable nursing homes both here in Chicago and in the ‘several’ States.    This former operator is co-operating with Law enforcement and making an effort to not only make restitution for his former misdeed, but to rectify the injury that he engaged in promulgating.
During the course of the interview, he pointed out that a prominent member of the cabal employed thugs on a regular basis.    These thugs were used for special programs, including but not limited to canvas the homeless camps.    At these camps (and especially those on lower Lake Street) the thugs would grab elderly homeless, render them helpless and take them to co-operating hospital emergency rooms.     Therein compromised doctors would certify the victims as incompetent and the office of the public guardian would generate through corrupt jurists, guardian ad litem, and other corrupt public officials guardianships for profit.
The guardians appointed (usually employees or agents of the Office of Public Guardian) would see to the incarceration of these human flotsam in the nursing homes and hospice facilities of this prominent nursing home operator.     The usual commission schedule was applicable for the jurist, the Guardian ad litem etc.      I could not ascertain if the commissions were on the table or off the table.    From the tenor of the conversation the payments were clandestine.
In the nursing home facilities the human flotsam were kept drugged, on minimum rations, and kept alive in the same manner as barn yard animals.     Medicare and Medicaid were billed for the room and board of the victims as was the services of the 18 USCA 371 and 18 USCA 242 co-conspirators.      When the victim’s incarceration ran its course, or the patient died hospice payments were billed and sought by the ‘treating’ facility.      With the co-operation of public officials, corrupt doctors, and corrupt judicial officials profits were maximized.
I was further informed that the hue and cry that is being raised by Ms. Denison and her blog – MaryGSykes, the blog Probate Sharks, and yours truly the prominent nursing home operator was forced to sell his operation and abandon the sweeps of the homeless haunts.    Apparently, our efforts have also thwarted similar operations in South Florida.
My ego directs me to believe this information as it is consistent with certain other facts that I have previously forwarded and most important consistent with the fact that when I requested an HONEST investigation Mr. Schmiedel, Mr. Stern, and Ms. Farenga jumped the gun and filed a Rule 137 Motion seeking sanctions to be imposed upon me for making the required inquiries concerning the Mary Sykes case, 09 P 4585  and when the Appellate Court of Illinois reversed the obviously illegal sanction order that they were able to obtain,  Farenga by a letter (previously furnished) was able to induce disciplinary proceedings against Ms. Denison and myself.     Our crime was requesting an HONEST INVESTIGATION and the independent publication thereof by the blog Probate Sharks.     As the First Amendment specifically protects such communications the conclusion and the tie in is obvious.  NB.  This request is also protected by the SLapp statutes, 320 ILCS 20/4, 18 USCA 4, Rule 8.3, 18 USCA 241 and 18 USCA 242, Americans with Disabilities , 47 USCA 230 ***** and a number of recent SCOTUS decisions ignored by the Illinois Supreme Court and the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission.
The foregoing notwithstanding, I would like to join all others who have made similar averments in respectfully requesting an HONEST and comprehensive investigation into this human trafficking and possible tax evasion, Medicare, and other  frauds and conspiracies.[1]

[1] Jerome Larkin, the administrator of the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary commission has not filed the required financial disclosure statements, and is believed to be intimately involved in the elder cleansing frauds based upon his bogus ethics prosecutions, his misrepresentation of the Alvarez decision by the SCOTUS and his outrageous statement that the MaryGSykes blogs’ exposure of judicial corruption is akin to yelling fire in a crowded theater.    His actions in these lawyer disciplinary actions against only the lawyers who object is in derogation of Rule 8.3 and 18 USCA 4.    His failure to protect the public from a judge who appears to admit that she was wired (see Page 90 and following) of her evidence deposition, and serious criminal action – such as harvesting gold from the mouths of victim Alice Gore – are all admissions against interest.
nB. I know of *****’s use of thugs.   One of my first cases involving Mr. **** involved his hiring a thug to beat up a client of mine who refused to attorn to Mr. ***’s wishes.   The Orthodox Jewish Community in Chicago was upset by Mr. ***’s actions and referred him to me to address the problem.   I had a visit from one of the thugs.   Because of my size and demeanor the thug decided that he was not interested in mixing it up with me.    When I rose from behind my desk, and he took a look at the way I was carrying myself he ran out of the office.  The next day Mr. **** made a generous cash settlement of my client’s claim.   Mr. ***** has not forgiven and forgotten! (Or at least he has made certain that I was aware of his position)

Subject: Our Illinois miscreants invaded Florida Re: Miriam Solo/aka Greenfield.
General Bondi, and Governor Scott,
We both have significant interests in bringing the elder cleansers to Justice.   My interest is due to the fact that I’ve watched the earth go around the Sun many many times and am probably older than many of the victims of the predatory guardianship for profit.   Florida has an interest due to the fact that it has so many elderly residents and it appears a major scandal in South Florida brewing.    Here in Illinois it has been recently disclosed to me that to enhance the population of sheltered care facilities such as nursing homes and hospice facilities on enterprising nursing home operator has allegedly sent gangs of toughs into areas where the homeless congregate.    The gangs make the victims emergency room ready, and have them transferred to co-operating ‘hospitals!’    
As many of the victims are drugged or otherwise rehabilitated the Office of the Public Guardian (Illinois) is appointed guardian and it places the victims into specific nursing homes.   Once in the nursing homes, with the use of drugs the human flotsam is reportedly warehoused until death or near death.   Thereafter hospice kicks in and continues until no more money can be obtained.
My further investigation has indicated that many of the same gang of miscreants who have committed the elder cleansings of Alice Gore, Mary Sykes et al were past employees of the Public Guardian’s office and learned their infamy in that State office.     
Today on Probate Sharks the following post was found, to wit:

Editor’s note: Obviously, the State of Florida is mandated to perform “due diligence” in locating heirs especially when their appellant court found a conflict and withheld half of Irving’s substantial estate. Why wasn’t this legal action taken? Why didn’t Florida  take criminal action? At least one of Irving’s brothers was a WWII  veteran and tracing him would not be too difficult. Barzilia…so…so many questions…unanswered.  Lucius Verenus, Schoolmaster,
Editor’s note: If one reads the obit of Marjorie G. Ivy’s sister, one realizes that there is a huge extended Ivy Family residing in Indiana. From the many swirls in the Shark Pool, we know that lots of Ivy’s are presently reading this blog. 
If, in essence,  Mordy’s siblings owe Mordy a large sum of money, it is apparent that there are laws governing victim’s and victim’s families’ rights to be monetarily reimbursed. Mordy may be a solvent individual.  Your ProbateShark suggests that the Ivys or the Ivy’s attorneys  contact the Illinois States’ Attorneys office to explore these possibilities.  Lucius Verenus, Schoolmaster,
Barzilai, Why didn’t Miriam Solo and her siblings advise the Florida Probate Court that they had a brother, Mordecai Faskowitz?
Barzilai, Why didn’t Miriam  stop at Zach Fardon’s office and confess while she was at the Federal Building Tuesday? Hundreds of viewers are watching and wondering.  LV
P.S. Your ProbateShark was just informed that Miriam was ordered to be in Federal Court Thursday A.M….so she could easily run upstairs to Zach’s office and cleanse her soul…
What boggles this fish brain is that even though we know the “authorities” read this blog and it is self evident that Miriam excluded her disabled brother, Mordecai Faskowitz from his inheritance, nothing is being done to punish her. Why? Why is she being protected? Could it be that Miriam has connections to high offices? Lucius Verenus, Schoolmaster,

Barzilai’s clipping.

Barzilai, Has Miriam confessed and repented?
Assault victim fears elderly woman’s murder could have been prevented   You write  
“To the best of Your ProbateShark’s knowledge the real decedents of Irving, his two brothers, David and Harry or their decendents were never advised using due diligence by the State of Florida as being true heirs to Irving’s Estate. In essence, total strangers with the same last name recovered the life achievements of Irving Fisk Faskowitz and the fifth unrelated sibling, Mordechai Faskowitz was excluded.”  
So what is it, exactly, that bothers you? That they are thieves, or that they didn’t share their ill gotten gains with their disabled brother?  
Are David and Harry decedents of Irving? I’m not sure what that means. Decedent means “one who is dead.” Are they the dead ones of Irving? Or maybe you mean descendants. But are brothers descendants? I thought children or legal wards were desecendants?  
Oh, my mistake. I thought you were a serious and rational independent investigator, but now I realize that you’re just letting off steam for a perceived injustice. It’s an emotional thing, and nothing has to really make sense. Sorry to bother you.  
Dear Barzilai,
Thank you so much for your most helpful comments on the blog. We appreciate all constructive comments to the blog. This Shark apologizes for errors as his fish brain is limited. This Shark has corrected 2 incorrect words in the posting i.e. decedents changed to descendants and Harry Faskowitz to Samuel Faskowitz. Your ProbateShark checked the genealogy that commissioned after witnessing the incongruities of the genealogy prepared by the Faskowitz-Solo Clan for the court in Sebring, Florida. This genealogy along with the complete Irving Fisk Faskowitz file is being limited to law enforcement personnel only.
Barzilai, what bothers this Shark is that one of the Faskowitz siblings is the same person who defrauded Alice R. Gore, a 99 year old disabled ward of the Probate Court of Cook County, removed her gold teeth, her fortune, her liberty and placed an unnecessary gastric tube into her stomach thus depriving her of one of her favorite senses, her taste of food. Yes, if these are the acts of thieves and people who would rob their own brother of any gains…legal or ill begotten…if the shoe fits…so be it.  
Your ProbateShark has big shoulders and accepts your criticism as he is a fish and not a professional investigator. As a sister and legal guardian of Mordy much more would be expected, but alas this was not forthcoming and the results to Marjorie Gayle Ivy were horrendous, deadly, and fatal.   
Barzilai, I have not corrected your errors in the word descendants in your original comment which you misspelled.
From the Shark Pool, Lucius Verenus, Schoolmaster,   Posted by Probate Shark  at  12:36 PM    
The same Illinois attorney who is reported to have been intimately involved in the alleged kidnapping of homeless people in Chicago also appears to be similarly involved in the Faskovitz case.    The Florida AG filed documents in Court suggesting that this attorney and her cohorts were engaged in a fraud; however, it appears that that a settlement was reached.   Probate Sharks in its blog has a good deal to say about the situation!    Pursuant to 18 USCA 4 and Rule 8.3 I forward this information to you for your edification and investigation.
It should be noted that here in Illinois pursuant to the Administration of Jerome Larkin the Illinois Attorney Disciplinary Commission (IARDC) ignores the serious charges and prosecutes disciplinary proceedings against lawyers who publish requests for HONEST INVESTIGATIONS. 

Thank you for your courtesy.

Nursing home report card–where does yours rank?

Pa. nursing homes are only the 9th worst because the political corruption in Pa. still pales by comparison to Illinois, Florida, ******.    In Illinois we have Jerome Larkin!    This amoral public official not only has the temerity to openly and notoriously misrepresent the Rule of Law as stated by the SCOTUS in Alvarez, but, has lied about the record in Sykes, Gore *** and had the temerity to characterize complaints concerning corruption of judges as akin to yelling fire in a crowded theater.*
The infamous corruption is affirmed by the Illinois Supreme Court – a body of elected Judges!
You have to visit one of the less public sections of an Illinois or a Florida nursing home run by the cabal that Jerome Larkin and his 18 USCA 371 co-conspirators are protecting by their assaults on the First Amendment Rights of lawyers screaming for an HONEST INVESTIGATION.    A visit to the crematories of the 3rd Reich is a equivalent!     
As if the Alice Gore case (the prospecting for gold in a senior mouth – and the removal of the gold from her teeth) is not bad enough, but, these “wonderful” politically recognized civic minded individuals who are so beloved by the political and judicial machinery supplement their income by trolling the haunts of the homeless.   Therein, they literally kidnap the homeless, drug them and take them to hospital emergency rooms where they are subsequently released by such entities as the public guardian to pay for play nursing homes.   Once in these nursing homes medicare and medicaid kick in and whatever money that is loose is garnered.   A single “rich” senior being elder cleansed may yield 10 to 15 thousand dollars a month in pure profit.   A couple of homeless people only a couple of thousand a month each – but, these people never bring in a JD, KD, JN, ****.    four or five to a room *****.
In Illinois I understand this practice was stopped when a whistle blower denounced it and noisy law enforcement people started to get too close; however, my source suggests that the same is still going on in Florida, California etc. 
In the cesspool of health care fraud no stone is left unturned to garner political and financial gain.   No one is safe!
* note, in Illinois, a corruption blog is only akin to yelling fire in a crowded theater, but you have to yell “police” or “fbi” and the theater has to be filled with Illinois corrupt politicians and judges, and of course lawyers from the ARDC.

I am shocked that Pennsylvania is not in the top 5 of the worst!  Look at how innocent and unsuspecting people are treated in the courts for money.  Innocent people dragged into court rooms for fraudulent and criminal wealth and property re-distribution because someone who doesn’t like them who has “high and mighty friends,” (some attorneys and possibly others) in the courts and some judges, or former judges and they can do whatever they want to whomever they want!
This report on the nursing home care should not shock anyone!  Look at the abuses to elder, disabled, unsuspectingly vulnerable and the HOA horrors involving vulnerable populations, or those they force into vulnerability to steal their homes, finances and equity and even more sinister motives for some!  Devastating lives, families, the health of the HOA homeowner, taking away the safety and security of their families and most could care less!  Especially, in Monroe County, PA, I believe.  Wake up Pennsylvania elected officials, law enforcement, prosecutors and investigators!…/… always in the top ten for the wrong things

The Perils of Probate Court in Retirement

After discovering that his philanthropist grandmother Brooke Astor was medically neglected, isolated from friends and living in squalor in a Manhattan Park Avenue duplex, Professor Philip Marshall was successful in replacing his father as power of attorney with a guardian who was a family friend.

“I petitioned the court for guardianship to save my grandmother and suggested Annette de la Renta,” said Marshall, a professor at Roger Williams University in Rhode Island.

As a result of her grandson’s efforts, Mrs. Astor was relocated to her 75-acre estate in Briarcliff Manor, New York while her son Anthony Marshall, who had reportedly failed to fill his mother’s prescription medication, was sentenced to prison for stealing from the Astor estate.
“I am now advocating for supported decision making over guardianship,” Marshall told Newsmax Finance.

Although there was a happy ending for Mrs. Astor, many family members nationwide don’t have the resources to withstand the perils of probate court.

“Concerned family members involved in litigation are often accused of being drug addicts or mentally ill by the attorneys of the court appointed guardians that use those kinds of tactics,” said Michael Larsen, author of Guardianship: How Judges & Lawyers Steal Your Money (Germain Publishing, February 3, 2016).

For example, Charlie Pascal was sued for defamation by his mother in law’s court appointed guardian.

“I’m legally blind so I represented myself using the Americans with Disabilities Act,” Pascal told Newsmax.

After Marcy DuDeck, Pascal’s relative, was placed under guardianship in Las Vegas in 2007 by Clark County Family Court Commissioner Jon Norheim, Pascal and his wife Heidi were banned from visiting the 93 year old.

“We also got calls from Morgan Stanley that the guardian was withdrawing large amounts of money from Marcy’s $1.2 million dollar trust,” said Pascal who began lobbying to reform Nevada state guardianship laws.

Under a court ordered guardianship, the elderly lose their individual and Constitutional rights around residence, medical care, assets and property and the consequences can be detrimental for families financially and the older relative’s health.

Special: Blake Shelton Finally Confesses How He Dropped All of the Weight

Some 90% of families who responded to a national survey commissioned in 2015 by the Americans Against Abusive Probate Guardianship (AAAPG) reported that the judge in their case was not acting in the best interest of the incapacitated person, 80% suspected the judge was improperly influenced and 70% felt that, once placed, the retirement home did not act in the best interests of the elderly person.

An abusive or questionable guardianship does not have to be the end of the road. Other than filing an appeal, petitioning the court as an interested party is one way to hold an abusive or neglectful guardian accountable.

“Courts have limited authority to act so litigants need to tailor their relief to something the court can consider and order,” said Don Ford, a partner attorney at the boutique law firm Ford + Bergner LLP, which litigates guardianship cases across the state of Texas.

That’s why national advocates oppose the fact that guardianship structures are imposed on an elderly individual at all.

“The fundamental problem that all abusive guardianships share in common are rampant greed, disrespect for the value of older people and families, no regard for the law and the absence of any meaningful consequence for guardianship stakeholders,” said Dr. Sam Sugar, founder of AAAPG in Aventura, Florida.

Although progress is slow, raising awareness is making a difference.
In December 2015, the Nevada Supreme Court Guardianship Commission unanimously voted to send a letter to all sheriffs and district attorneys in the state, as well as the Attorney General, requesting that they prosecute misconduct and seek restitution for people subject to unjust guardianships. Two other laws passed include one that allows out of state relatives to be named guardians and another that requires guardians to be state certified before they can practice.

“We are now lobbying for stronger laws, which will require guardians to return to victims what they have taken,” said Pascal.

First Amendment Retaliation for running this blog

Dear Readers;

An old friend wrote me lately and asked which statutes were violated in my disciplinary case and I responded as follows (and I want to thank S for the question).

Feel free to use these in your pleadings where you speak out for a loved one, but you are falsely arrested on bogus charges.

You are told to “shut up” in probate or divorce court.

You are told “we don’t do things that way down here” (referring to no due process, no notice, no summons or complaint, no time for discovery and no hearing)

You are told to get your comments off of social media and don’t make any comments on this (corrupt) case.

Dear S;

You asked a good question about why an honest lawyer is being disciplined, and what laws and statutes protect a lawyer who is  whistleblower.  You may wish to review these statutes and cases:

Whistleblower Lawyers

First and foremost, all lawyers are supposed to be whistleblowers on other lawyers and on the judges who are also lawyers. There is no exception and lawyers are not supposed to create a “code of silence” for corruption or look the other way when it is occuring.

Under the Himmel case, an attorney is required to report instances of attorney misconduct to the ARDC and the appropriate authorities.

All my blog did was post information on the Mary G Sykes case.

Mary G Sykes Probate case 09 P 4585 Case Synopsis:

Mary G Sykes noted one day that $4,000 was missing from her bank account. The banker told her that Carolyn Toerpe took the money under a POA and that she should file for a Protective Order.  Mary went downtown to file for a Protective Order.  Carolyn received the Petition, hired a crooked lawyer (Harvey Waller–denounced in Indiana by the Atty General there for fleecing the elderly in a Reverse Mortgage business) and he responded with a Petition for Guardianship.

The US Constitution requires due process or a judgement is void ab initio (from the beginning).  You do not have to file anything or say anything, you can reopen the case at any time and get it dismissed.  Juridiction requires notice, time to prepare, discovery and a hearing.  If any of those are absent, any court order is void abinitio.

Carolyn took Mary to Naperville and would not let her come home. She used the Sheriffs at Cook County to do this.

The Guardianship was filed in Cook County and the sheriff went out on several summons and all were marked “person not served” (First Vol. of Sykes appeal, on my blog).

Mary was also entitled to a hearing.  In a letter from GAL Stern to Harvey Waller it was a done deal that Mary would be deemed incapacitated and that Carolyn would become guardian.

A lawyer has a duty to report all of this to the authorities.  I wrote letters to Lisa Madigan, Illinois state’s attorney, Anita Alvarez Cook County States attorney and Diane Saltoun, Illinois Inspector General whose job is to prevent fraud or theft from Illinois State Agencies.  Mary would be drugged and put in a nursing home when she wanted to stay in her own home, per her power of attorney.  Since the State of Illinois gives significant dollars to nursing home residents together with Medicare, that is fraud.  It is wasted money.  Tax payer dollars.

Each of Madigan, Alvarez and Saltoun wrote back and said it was not their job to go after court corruption and fraud (which is a lie).

I wrote letters (and so did Ken) to the attorneys general, the ARDC complaining of the criminal conduct and the danger Mary was in (“target, isolate, medicate, drain the estate, narcotize and eliminate, cremate), and they all dismissed the letters (In other cases lawyers were disciplined for filing Guardianships without jurisdiction and commandeering a ward’s money to pay their own bills–Sykes is similar–Seniors for Cash)

Ken was told he should be ashamed for writing to the authorities and quoting GAO reports (US govt agency reports), that there was serious fraud and corruption in guardianship. (these are cited elsewhere on this blog)

The statutes involved are:

321 USC sec 20/4 for immunity for report the physical and financial abuse of an elder.

(b) Any person, institution or agency participating in the making of a report, providing information or records related to a report, assessment, or services, or participating in the investigation of a report under this Act in good faith, or taking photographs or x-rays as a result of an authorized assessment, shall have immunity from any civil, criminal or other liability in any civil, criminal or other proceeding brought in consequence of making such report or assessment or on account of submitting or otherwise disclosing such photographs or x-rays to any agency designated to receive reports of alleged or suspected abuse or neglect. Any person, institution or agency authorized by the Department to provide assessment, intervention, or administrative services under this Act shall, in the good faith performance of those services, have immunity from any civil, criminal or other liability in any civil, criminal, or other proceeding brought as a consequence of the performance of those services. For the purposes of any civil, criminal, or other proceeding, the good faith of any person required to report, permitted to report, or participating in an investigation of a report of alleged or suspected abuse, neglect, financial exploitation, or self-neglect shall be presumed.

18 USC sec 4 for Misprison of felony.

Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

All I did was blog about the case, I did not appear in the Sykes case:

Sec. 5. Public policy. Pursuant to the fundamental philosophy of the American constitutional form of government, it is declared to be the public policy of the State of Illinois that the constitutional rights of citizens and organizations to be involved and participate freely in the process of government must be encouraged and safeguarded with great diligence. The information, reports, opinions, claims, arguments, and other expressions provided by citizens are vital to effective law enforcement, the operation of government, the making of public policy and decisions, and the continuation of representative democracy. The laws, courts, and other agencies of this State must provide the utmost protection for the free exercise of these rights of petition, speech, association, and government participation.
 Civil actions for money damages have been filed against citizens and organizations of this State as a result of their valid exercise of their constitutional rights to petition, speak freely, associate freely, and otherwise participate in and communicate with government. There has been a disturbing increase in lawsuits termed “Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation” in government or “SLAPPs” as they are popularly called.
    The threat of SLAPPs significantly chills and diminishes citizen participation in government, voluntary public service, and the exercise of these important constitutional rights. This abuse of the judicial process can and has been used as a means of intimidating, harassing, or punishing citizens and organizations for involving themselves in public affairs.
    It is in the public interest and it is the purpose of this Act to strike a balance between the rights of persons to file lawsuits for injury and the constitutional rights of persons to petition, speak freely, associate freely, and otherwise participate in government; to protect and encourage public participation in government to the maximum extent permitted by law; to establish an efficient process for identification and adjudication of SLAPPs; and to provide for attorney’s fees and costs to prevailing movants.

Cases to read–US Supreme Court:  1) Citizens United (FEC prohibited any movies from coming out 60 days before an election.  Citizens United made trashy “Hillary” movie which even the US Supremes said was repugnant.  The Court ruled that free speech is subject to “strict scrutiny” and the US govt cannot tell anyone when to speak, what to speak or to refrain from speaking.
“strict scrutiny” means the govt must have a compelling interest, the ends must justify the means, the least restrictive guidelines must be imposed, and the law must actually work to prevent harm.  Strict scrutiny means the govt will never win.  The FEC rule was struck down as being unconstitutional facially under the First Amendment

None of that is present in my case.  I am a blogger about corruption.  People report it to me, I write to the authorities, pursuant to my duties as a lawyer and civilian, and I publish the example so others know how to do this.  The govt cannot and must not regulate the media.  Since this is all under 320 ILCS 20/4, my good faith is presumed.

2) False SpeechAlvarez.  In Alvarez, a man went around with a fake Medal of Valor to entice the ladies to sleep with him.  He also gave speeches on heroism at local VFW’s and got free meals.  Congress had passed a law saying no one could say they had a Medal of Valor when in fact they did not.  The US Supreme Court said that Mr Alvarez’s right to lie about his fake Medal of Valor was covered under free speech.

Federal Appellate case:
Rosemont v. Markham.  Mr. Rosemont was a popular therapist with a masters degree in Psychology.  He was a licensed therapist in NC but not Kentucky.  One day a Kentucky therapist reported his blog and column to the disciplinary authorities for practicing psychology without a license in Kentucky because he wrote a column giving some Kentucky parents some general advice in dealing with a lazy teen son.  The Kentucky Federal Dist  court ruled that the state government had no jurisdiction to regulate a professional column/blog/media under the first amendment.

Illinois Appellate case:
In re Weddigen:  Mr. Weddigen was unhappy with the judge in his divorce.  He went on fb and told everyone how the judge was wrong and how to record court proceedings and which apps to get and how to file complaints about lawyers and judges.
Mrs. Weddigen’s attorney reported this to the court. The court sanctioned Mr. Weddigen thousands of dollars and told him to remove his fb posts about the divorce case.  In a concurring opinion, a 4th district justice said that this was covered by the 1st amendment,
he was shocked that esteemed lawyers and judges did not know this, and that the trial court had no jurisdiction to regulate blog posts regarding court case activities. In the main opinion, the sanction was vacated for failure to comply with rules and procedure.

I am up to nearly 400 “friends” on my facebook.  I only friend people who complain that they were in court and the proceeding was corrupt (and elder or family member was abused, a child rep was bought, a judge made a decision clearly contrary to all evidence).

I do my duty and I must be touching nerves because things are happening:

To wit:

During the last two months:

1) Largest nursing home operator in California indicted and removed on millions in Medicare Fraud;
2)  Largest nursing home operator in Miami Dade county indicted and removed for millions in Medicare Fraud;
3) Seth Gillman of Passages did $1 billion in business with Medicare and the State of Illinois in fake “hospice” work.  The feds indicted him in January for $100 million in fraud.  Last month, he pled guilty to one count of Medicare Faud and one count of govt fraud and his sentence will be 10 years min.

Fraudsters in nursing home business Draiman and Esformes have been taken out.

You did good asking this question.

More on horrendous guardianships

By Stacy M. Brown
For the Pocono Record

Posted Mar. 5, 2016 at 8:57 PM

Mary Whitten worries each day about her uncle, former advertising executive Harvey Whitten.

The elder Whitten, a Korean War medic, suffered a stroke in 2010 and was diagnosed with vascular dementia. Because of his condition, some in Whitten’s family moved to petition the court to appoint a guardian.

That decision has haunted Mary Whitten.

“My uncle is a victim. His guardian changed his doctors and medication behind the backs of his family and approved of his being administered 5 milligrams of Haldol daily, a chemical restraint,” Whitten said.

When Whitten, a Montgomery County resident, read a column about elder guardianship abuse, she was pleased that Pennsylvania cases were finally being thrust into the national spotlight.

The article, written by former Court TV reporter and nationally syndicated columnist Diane Dimond, highlighted what the journalist called a shameful racket in America.

Families and loved ones are often shut out while the health of the elder quickly diminishes, according to Dimond.

“My uncle’s guardian emailed last September and said my uncle couldn’t eat anymore without a feeding tube,” Whitten said. “We went to visit and he was trying to eat his sheets because he had been starved for two days.”

Harvey Whitten suffers from allergies to clothes detergents, and as a result, not only was he starving, but he had blisters on his skin from the detergents, his niece said.

“My cousin asked if there was some way that my uncle could be fed, since he was trying to eat the sheets. So, (the guardian) decided to give him ‘comfort food.’ If the family didn’t say anything, he would have been starved to death,” Whitten said.

The legal ordeal in fighting the guardianship arrangement has cost Whitten more than $10,000 and her uncle $400,000 just last year, she said, while noting others have spent close to $1 million in legal fees trying to extricate loved ones from court-ordered guardianship.

94-year-old’s plight

Dimond’s column chronicled the plight of 94-year-old Betty Winstanley, who resides at the Masonic Village retirement home in Elizabethtown.

Despite appearing of sound mind and somewhat wealthy, Winstanley’s desire to live elsewhere is still being ignored. Her husband of 72 years has died and she wants to move to a care home closer to her two children in Maryland.

However, Pennsylvania Common Pleas Judge Jay J. Hoberg declared her “totally incompetent” 19 months ago, meaning she can’t make decisions on her own.

Guardians appointed by the court get to make all of her decisions, including where she must live, who can visit and for how long, even whether she is allowed to take short day trips away from Masonic Village.

“I had no idea the enormity of the nation’s elder guardianship problem or how many individuals or organizations are fighting to change the now bastardized set of laws that can turn an elder’s life into a nightmare,” Dimond said.

“If the aging baby boomer generation hasn’t already experienced the problem with their own parents — steel yourselves — you could be the next one to get caught up in this awful system,” she warned.

While organizations like the National Association to Stop Guardianship Abuse (NASGA) and Americans Against Abusive Probate Guardianship say the system is corrupt all around the state, the Pocono Record could not find similar abuses in Monroe or Pike counties.

“I have filed many petitions for guardianship and in the past have been appointed by the last four Monroe County Court of Common Pleas Orphan’s Court judges to represent alleged incapacitated persons,” said Stroudsburg attorney Lori J. Cerato.

“I have never experienced a case such as the one (Dimond) reported on in Lancaster.”

But the cases of Whitten and Winstanley — and many others — are real.

Winstanley, who said she attended an important initial hearing before a judge while still grieving her husband’s death and without her hearing aids, was unable to understand the proceeding, and her court-appointed attorney never told her she had the right to speak before the judge made a decision.

On July 17, 2014, Judge Hoberg heard testimony from a doctor and nurse from Masonic Village and declared Winstanley a totally incapacitated person, presumably ignoring that she had been tested by two independent neuropsychologists who declared that she was of sound mind.

She was appointed two guardians and immediately she said she felt cut off from the rest of the world. Winstanley’s next hearing before the court is scheduled for 9 a.m. on Wednesday, March 30.

“In Pennsylvania, judges have broad discretion in assessing credibility and determining whether or not someone has capacity, subject to review by the Superior Court of Pennsylvania and the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania,” Cerato said.

Hawley-based attorney Leatrice A. Anderson said while she does a lot of guardianships in Pike and Wayne counties and has been appointed as counsel for incapacitated individuals on a number of occasions, she’s always careful in the pursuit of the guardianships as both counsel for the petitioners or counsel for the individual.

“When I am appointed as counsel for the incapacitated person, I make a point to go see them wherever they live so I can speak with them one on one without the confusion and nervousness of a courtroom setting,” Anderson said.

“My heart breaks for (Winstanley), but in fairness, the judge was given a certain picture of the situation and he ruled what he felt was in her best interest. Taking responsibilities and making decisions on behalf of our elderly community places enormous burden on guardians, and it shouldn’t be sought out without thinking the process through.”

Still, there are, “plenty of cases in places like Montgomery County,” many of which are highlighted on a Facebook page dedicated to guardianship abuse there, said Elaine Renoire of NASGA.

“The motherlode of our cases are in Montgomery County,” Renoir said, adding that the laws must be changed.

Push for change

To that end, the daughter of a late actor has led the charge.

Last week, Utah senators passed a bill that protects the rights of adult children to visit ailing parents in that state.

The bill, SB 111, places limitations on the power of a guardian to prohibit association between an adult ward and a relative.

“We are thrilled about this and we’re hoping that all other states will follow,” said Catherine Falk, who pushed for introduction and passage of the bill.

Falk is the daughter of the legendary “Columbo” actor Peter Falk, who in 2008 became completely incapacitated as a result of advanced dementia.

Falk’s wife, Catherine Falk’s stepmother, however, allegedly failed to inform Falk’s children of his condition and refused to allow the actor’s children to visit their ailing father, his daughter said.

In December 2008, Catherine Falk filed a petition for conservatorship of her father in the Los Angeles Superior Court in order to find out his medical condition and obtain the right to visit.

Further, Falk’s wife did not notify his daughters of the actor’s death. Instead, they learned of it from media reports and their attorney. Falk was buried without notification being given to his daughters.

U.S. Sen. Todd Weiler, R-Utah, who led sponsorship of the bill in the Senate, said it’s important to give people a chance to visit family members before they die.

“I think most people want to make peace and express their love and sadness and maybe try to clear up any misunderstanding before someone passes away,” Weiler said.

Study done in Pa.

In 2013, a Pennsylvania task force chaired by State Supreme Court Justice Debra McCloskey Todd was formed to study the overall issues of access to justice being faced by older residents.

The 38-member Elder Law Task Force recommended several actions, two of which were immediately put into place including the creation of an Office of Elder Justice in the Courts and the formation of an Advisory Council on Elder Justice in the Courts that serves as the judiciary’s liaison to the executive and legislative branches.

“As our population ages, courts are facing unprecedented challenges, the increasing population of elders anticipated during the next 20 years is likely to result in a substantial increase in court cases regarding the protection of vulnerable elderly persons, including guardianship, elder abuse proceedings and other types of cases,” Todd said in a statement.

The sheer volume of complaints in sealed cases are staggering and highlight citizen’s attitudes about the way the legal system has taken laws designed to help the elderly and twisted them to insure continued employment for judges, lawyers, court-appointed guardians, social workers and those who own or staff elder care homes, Dimond said.

All of it conveniently paid for out of the estates of the elderly.

“Change couldn’t come fast enough for Betty Winstanley,” Dimond noted.

“Ever since her eldest son, Richard, took a family squabble to court in July 2014, she has had to live where her husband died — and without being near the family she so desperately craves,” Dimond said.

“Her estate was worth $1.9 million before her guardianship began in July 2014. Wonder what it’s down to now?”

Today’s Wall Street Journal article   is indicative of the fact that the narrative that we are witnessing in the political world, i.e. cover-up, fraud, deceit, and conspiracy is everywhere.     Right is left, up is down, truth is false is the new criteria.    In fact the bribe solicitation and payment is everywhere.    See:
During last night’s Republican debate, the front runner admitted to paying for services rendered to the Democratic front runner at least ten times.    The amazing candor demonstrating that we have the best politicos that money can buy does not seem to really faze anyone.    Purchasing judges, public officials, et al. is a way of life in 21st Century America.    In fact the JoAnne Denison disciplinary prosecution and the total lack of ‘hue and cry’ demonstrates that corrupt public officials such as Jerome Larkin, administrator of the Illinois Attorney Disciplinary Commission are becoming the norm not the exception.
The perception is that entire system is rotten to the core.   It is hard to argue that it is not.      Ms. Lerner at the IRS openly used her position for partisan political purposes in derogation of the long standing rules of the agency, but she appears to have escaped discipline.    On the other side of the coin Lanre Amu pursuant to ABA rule 8.3 reported that a judge was refusing to recuse herself in a case that the defendant employed her on its corporate board and her brother was the attorney for the defendant.    (Larkin and his 18 USCA 242 and 18 USCA 371 co=conspirators determined that even though the respected Crain’s Chicago Business made the same averment that Amu’s report was false and jeopardized the course of Justice in Illinois)    Amu received an interim suspension followed by a three year suspension.     [Indeed, the only false statements made were made by the Disciplinarians!)
Last night’s Republican debate made it very clear that America is in crisis AND “we the People” are about to lose our Liberty and heritage unless something is done immediately.    The assaults by the clergy, the judiciary, and protective services on our children are becoming common place and the elder cleansing of our senior citizens a cottage industry.     
We need right now an HONEST INVESTIGATION and a cleansing of the corrupt judges, lawyers, political and judicial officials who are polluting our environment and National existence.     There is no Constitutional Right to be a public officials (judicial or political) and there is no human right for a clout heavy individual to prey on the elderly, the young, or the disabled.   
Act now before the cancer of corruption becomes stage 4.

Very Troubling: Rockland Judge gives advice to one party ex parte from bench and allows perjured testimony from lawyers and litigant

CARRINGTON UPDATE: 2010 transcripts show Warren gave advice to McNelis from the bench

Susan Carrington’s custody case took another troubling turn when she alleged in a New York Appeal’s Court that the judge who originally handled her case provided ex-parte advice to her ex-husband, John McNelis, in a hearing in 2010.
According to a February 3, 2016, appeal filed with New York’s Supreme Court, on May 7, 2010, John McNelis along with his attorney, Scott Ugell, entered the Rockland County Family Court Room of then Judge William Warren and began discussing issues related to custody with his ex-wife, Susan Carrington. The three began having a conversation without Carrington’s presence who was in Washington D.C. at the time.
McNelis was appearing in Rockland County though a Maryland Court had already issued a full ruling on their divorce and granted the couple joint custody. At the hearing McNelis told Warren that he had reason to believe Carrington was a danger to her children, the same accusations that had been dismissed in Maryland court with prejudice only a few months earlier and for which McNelis had actually been fined by the court for making frivolous allegations.
Yet transcripts and audio show that Warren did not request evidence or a transcript from prior court hearings, nor provide Carrington any reasonable opportunity to deflect such accusations. Instead, transcripts show that the longtime Rockland justice took McNelis seemingly at his word, going so far as to tell him that if he was in his shoes and was afraid for his daughters safety, he would not follow the Maryland order to return the children there for their regular visitation.
McNelis was attempting to transfer jurisdiction to Rockland County where he had recently moved, something not easily accomplished according to federal regulations. Transcripts show Warren told McNelis:
“What I’m saying is, the method you are using to attack this problem is not the method that should be used,” Judge Warren instructed McNelis from the bench. “What you want to do, I believe, is to change the visitation in some way, get some kind of control of her contact with the children. But presumptively the case has to go to Maryland. You didn’t bring that kind of a case. You didn’t bring a visitation or custody; you brought a family offense case, which doesn’t have those same requirements on it. A family offense case can be brought in this state, where you live, even if you’ve been living here for 10 minutes.”
Carrington’s lawyer Barbara Schwartz contends that Warren’s words could easily be construed as legal advice from the bench, which is against judicial ethics. The issue of jurisdiction has been at the source of controversy in this custody matter with Carrington, as she has argued that New York never legally acquired jurisdiction in the case and that McNelis and his attorneys worked around the system.
“Family offense means that one person hurt or threatened a member of the household,” according to the New York State Courts definition. By bringing his motion, as Warren suggested, as a family offense, Rockland County could begin to wrestle jurisdiction from Maryland.
McNelis, who had several DUI and drug arrests on his personal rap sheet, claimed repeatedly throughout the proceedings that Carrington was an abuser of drugs; an allegation that had also been made and dismissed by a Maryland court. The Rockland County allegation that Carrington abused drugs was backed up by the conclusion of Dr. Charles Heller, a New York forensic psychologist, who determined this without speaking or examining Carrington, but strictly based on McNelis allegations, according to several court filings.
Rolf Thorsen, who was assisting Warren on the case, demanded Carrington go for drug rehabilitation before she could see her children again. But Carrington was then rejected from entrance to a Rockland County drug rehabilitation facility because the facility determined she had no drugs in her system and did not have a drug problem. Somehow, this still did not help her position with the Rockland court.
The Rockland County Family Court system has stopped Carrington from having any contact with her two daughters for more than five years, though the court has never changed the custody order in Maryland. Carrington told RCT that this transcript shows that the intention all along for Rockland County was to keep her from her children.
“I was shocked in utter disbelief that my fate was predetermined and that no matter what I did or didn’t do, McNelis was going to make true on his promise to take my daughters away from me.”
While New York ceded jurisdiction in January, Carrington continues appealing in New York State to overturn several orders including one sanctioning her for approximately $15,000. In Carrington’s opinion, New York never truly acquired jurisdiction. Carrington also hopes to reestablish Maryland’s authority in the case as soon as possible and has filed a brief in court in that state.
McNelis currently lives at an unknown address in Florida wish his and Carrington’s two daughters. A person must live a state for at least six months before the state is eligible to claim jurisdiction in a custody case.
Ugell and Heller would not comment on the case at this time.

 “No class of the community ought to be allowed freer scope in the expression or publication of opinions as to the capacity, impartiality or integrity of judges than members of the bar. They have the best opportunities of observing and forming a correct judgment. They are in constant attendance on the courts. Hundreds of those who are called on to vote never enter a court-house, or if they do, it is only at intervals as jurors, witnesses or parties. To say that an attorney can only act or speak on this subject under liability to be called to account and to be deprived of his profession and livelihood by the very judge or judges whom he may consider it his duty to attack and expose, is a position too monstrous to be entertained for a moment under our present system,”

Subject: Re: IRS – COMPLAINT?

I just googled IRS Estate Fraud and

got The Section for Estates and the Special Form
form 3949-A
for person or business (Estate is a business or the Executor is considered
as opposed to your personal accountant who files)

Specific Instructions
Section A – Provide Information About the Person/Business You Are Reporting, if known.

Provide as much information as you know about the person or business you are reporting.

1. Complete if you are reporting an individual. Include their name, street address, city, state, ZIP code, social security number or taxpayer identification number, occupation, date of birth, marital status, name of spouse (if married), and email address. Include as much information as you know.

2. Complete if you are reporting a business. Include the business name, business street address, city, state, ZIP code, employer identification number (EIN), telephone number(s), email address, and website, if known.

Note: Complete both parts if you are reporting a business and its owner. Section B – Use to Describe the Alleged Tax Law Violation(s)

3. Check all Tax Violations That Apply to Your Report.

False Exemption- Claimed persons as dependents they are not entitled to claim.

False Deductions- Claimed false or exaggerated deductions to reduce their taxable income.

Multiple Filings- Filed more than one tax return to receive fraudulent refunds.

Organized Crime- Member of a group of persons who engaged in illegal enterprises such as drugs, gambling, loansharking, extortion, or laundering illegal money through a legitimate business.

Unsubstantiated Income- Reported false income from an unverifiable source in order to get a false refund.

Earned Income Credit- Claimed Earned Income Credit which they were not entitled to receive. They may have reported income they did not earn or claimed children they were not entitled to claim.

Public/Political Corruption- Public official or politician violated laws against using their position illegally for personal gain.

False/Altered Documents- Changed documents, such as a W-2 or Form 1099, or created fake documents to substantiate a false refund.

Catalog Number 47872E Form 3949-A (Rev. 3-2014)

Page 3

Unreported Income- Received cash or other untraceable payments, such as goods or services, and did not report the income.

Narcotics Income- Received income from illegal drugs or narcotics.

Kickback- Received illegal payments or kickbacks in exchange for referring the business of a government agency or other business towards a company or for influencing business decisions that result in part of the payment for the business received or service performed being returned to the person who made the referral.

Wagering/Gambling- Did not report income received from wagering or gambling.

Failure to Withhold Tax- Individual or business did not withhold legally owed taxes from income paid to their employee(s), such as Social Security or Medicare taxes. Example: A business treated employees as independent contractors and issued Forms 1099, with no tax withheld, instead of a W-2.

Failure to File Return- Individual or business has not filed returns legally due. Failure to Pay Tax- Individual or business has not paid taxes legally due. Other- Describe in 5.

Yep, that’s a good one. We should do a show on how to get these guardians, GALs and other court miscreants with investigative work and reporting this to the IRS.

the tax rate for evasion and criminal activity is 50%. for every month a filing and tax is owed, the interest is 2% up to 100%.  that means 100% of what is stolen would go to the IRS.

Then there is the doctrine of “constructive receipt”  in one of the earliest reported cases, man was a union steward for a very large union.  He was out one day and wanted to buy something for himself and his family, and he only had union checks on him.  He used a union check and the IRS got the tax court to rule that by doing so, all the income from the Union for that year was taxable to him and he was liable for that income plus interest, fees, fines and penalties because apparently the union never paid their income tax on time and had a bunch of bogus deductions (fancy lunches, etc.)   plus, I think they also lost their 501-c-3 status for cooking the books that year.

That means that all criminals, ie, attorneys with a fiduciary duty, by means of a 42 USC sec 371 conspiracy are liable under this doctrine too.

You have to call or visit the IRS offices.  Often they want a TIN or EIN but maybe you can fudge that or call up the lawyers and get their TIN or EIN by saying you’re an accountant for a client and you need it.

try to get their fax number or email so you can send all the documents and a synopsis of your assertions and the laws that were broken.  I have a good list on my blog for gship statutory common violations

good luck

If the link that is forwarded to you is 50% accurate a very serious crime has been committed by the California authorities.    American Judicial System for Sale: Bribes and Corruption now the Norm
 Similar charges have been made as to Ill, Ind, Fla, Ohio, Pa, Col, etc in relationship to the Guardianship frauds (elder cleansing).     The corruption is costing Federal , State, and local governments billions of dollars and the total disregard and non-enforcement of the Rule of Law is disreputable, disingenuous, and pernicious.     
If lawyers are intimidated and punished for exposing corruption, expect that corruption will be a way of life here in America, and the lost of liberty for everyone is not far off!
Even though lawyers disciplinary commissions have openly and notoriously participated in a cover up flaunting 18 USCA 242, 371, 1341 and 4 it does not appear that the miscreants (including Jerome Larkin of Illinois) have to worry as they are ‘special citizens’ for whom the law does not apply.    AN HONEST INVESTIGATION IS REQUIRED!
