from FB: Changes from 2016 to the Illinois Probate Act

It would be nice if the Act required all GALs to be recorded when they have contact with the disabled person, but maybe next time.

https://emarquettebank.com/financial-management/trust-investment-management/todays-estate-analyst/what-are-the-2016-changes-to-the-illinois-probate/

 

A number of new laws took effect in Illinois at the beginning of 2016. Among them were a few that involved the Illinois Probate Act of 1975 (755 ILCS 5/) and other laws that affect estate planning, trusts and disabled individuals. Some of these modifications brought dramatic changes to these areas of law that are essential for practitioners to understand. Here are the citations and short summaries about the 2016 changes:

What Illinois Laws Affecting Estate Planning Were Updated for 2016?

    • Probate Disabled Persons Wills [755 ILCS 5/4-1] – This legislation amends the definition of the capacity of a testator who has been adjudicated as disabled. Under this amendment, there is now a rebuttable presumption that voids a codicil or will if its testator was found to be disabled at the time it was created or amended. However, the rebuttable presumption would not be valid if the court authorized the creation of the codicil or will. In addition, if the rebuttable presumption does apply, it takes clear and convincing evidence that the testator had the capacity to create or amend the will or codicil to overcome it.

 

    • Probate Temp Adult Guardians [755 ILCS 5/11a-4] – This amends the Illinois Probate Act to expand the powers of temporary guardians of disabled adults, providing them with a limited version of the duties and powers of a permanent guardian.

 

    • Probate Rights of Posthumous Children [755 ILCS 5/2-3] – This new law involves a change to the Illinois Probate Act due to a complete rewrite of a portion of the Illinois Parentage Act of 2015. This amendment clarifies when posthumous children (children who are born or conceived after the death of one parent) are considered to legally be children of a decedent as it pertains to inheritance. Under this new law, in Illinois, posthumous children are only considered children of a decedent if the child was in utero at the time the decedent passed away. As such, a child that is born via implantation after a decedent’s death through the use of frozen sperm or frozen embryos would not be considered the decedent’s child as it pertains to inheritance purposes.

 

    • Illinois ABLE Accounts for Disabled Individuals [15 ILCS 505/16.6] – This will allow disabled individuals in Illinois to create Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) accounts, which are savings accounts that enable the disabled to save up to $100,000 in a tax-free fund. The fund can be used to pay for certain disability expenses without risk of disqualifying disabled individuals from receiving SSI, SSDI and Medicaid.

 

    • Probate Citations Recover [755 ILCS 5/16-1] – This new law increases the court’s ability to issue citations for the appearance of those who have or may have had assets in their possession that belong to the estate of a ward or who may otherwise be liable to the ward’s estate pursuant to a civil action.

 

  • Certification of Trust Form [760 ILCS 5/8.5] – This paves the way for the creation of a Certification of Trust Form that can be given to third parties instead of a complete copy of the trust instrument. Certification of Trust Forms are basically a couple of pages long and only include dispositive information as opposed to full copies of trust instruments. The full copies typically are over 25 pages and include both information a third party needs as well as information that might be better left private.
  • Foreclosure Special Representative [735 ILCS 5/15-1501(h)] – This amendment eliminated the requirement for a special representative to be appointed for a mortgagor who has passed away in certain situations involving foreclosure. Under this new law, as part of the procedure to foreclose on a mortgagor who has died, a special representative will not have to be appointed for the deceased mortgagor if: (1) the mortgage property title was conveyed to a trust before the mortgagor died, (2) a beneficiary is designated in a transfer on death instrument, (3) the title of the mortgage property has already gone through the probate estate transfer process or (4) the property’s title was conveyed to an entity or person(s) prior to death.

from FB: Article on how corruption is fostered by fake “judicial immunity”

How Corrupt Judges are Destroying Our Society

CORRUPTION WATCH-China’s Liu Qiangdong, founder of China’s “Amazon,” variously known as Jongdong, JD.com or simply JD, provides insight as to why the American judicial system is making America non-functional.

Corruption destroys trust and without trust, society breaks down, as described by a piece in the July 22, 2018 issue of The New Yorker, “How E-Commerce Is Transforming Rural China,”by Jiayang Fan.

As Americans are learning, the judicial system is in shambles. California is especially bad, but it is not alone.  See also this article. Unlike police officers, judges are free to do whatever they desire, hiding behind judicial immunity. (Mireles V. Waco (1991) 502 U.S. 9)

To add insult to the indignity of being preyed upon by corrupt judges, Californians have to endure the Commission of Judicial Performance [CJP], which is the watchdog agency where the wolves monitor the wolves who are feasting inside the hen house. Needless to say, this situation is lethal to justice, but due to judicial immunity, “us chickens” have no voice. While the CJP is supposed to discipline miscreant judges, it protects them.

The Role of Trust in Society

Because of corruption in the Chinese consumer market, no one trusted his on-line store. Hence, Liu was going bankrupt. However, when someone vouched for his honesty, people began to trust him. After a while his reputation for trustworthiness grew and people flocked to his website. Now JD.com stands right behind Amazon and Alphabet, Inc, (Google’s parent) as the world’s third largest company. Liu knew that actions do speak louder than words and America’s approach of offering lying platitudes about the great American legal system deceives few people. We need to restore integrity to our courts as Liu did to his online stores.

While China recognizes the need to end corruption, Americans have been encouraging it. When people tried to stop the corruption at Enron, the judges protected the fraud until the entire sham collapsed. Likewise, the courts protected the Wall Street criminals during the 2000s while they were destroying the world economy. After the Crash of 2008, there were no prosecutions. Meanwhile, China hands out life prison terms for corruption.

As I pointed out previously in CityWatch, one reason Donald Trump-a-Doddle is so upset with the courts’ not doing his bidding is that for decades he knew he could waltz into a court and emerge wealthier while his workers and suppliers would be shoved into bankruptcy.

Judicial Corruption is not Limited to the Billionaires

As most Californians who have been forced to deal with the California courts have learned, the rule of law has been supplanted by the avarice of judges. Talk with someone who has been in Family Court.  The stories are unbelievable, but most likely correct. Children are abused and essentially held for ransom while parents have to undergo psychological counseling for “dual diagnoses.” Surprise, surprise, the psychologist is a friend of the judge. As Huff Post reported in 2017, judges make awards in favor of the unfit parent knowing that the fit parents will spend large sums of money to protect the children.

Some judges will have secret contact with attorneys who have ways to compensate the kindly judge.   If a case should fail to go the way a judge desires, the judge can overrule the jury. If a jury returns a $10 million verdict against a corporation and the judge reduces it to $100,000, don’t be surprised when the judge’s house refinancing is paid by that corporation.

Judicial Immunity is a Judicial Evil

Judicial immunity has proven to be a total failure. It would be as ludicrous to give police officers immunity to commit crimes as long as they did it while on duty. Yet, judges may engage in criminal behavior as long as they claim it was part of their judicial duties. If a cop smashes you over the head you can sue him for excessive force but if a judge orders him to beat you, you cannot sue the judge. (Mireles V. Waco.) Duh! Truth Justice and the American way?

A judge can award huge costs against a citizen, whom the corporate world dislikes, with complete knowledge that the person has done nothing wrong. A false judgment can take years to correct – if the victim can ever obtain justice. The matter of Sharon Noon Kramer is one example how the courts attack decent people.

About the only way a judge can lose his immunity is to act outside “jurisdiction.” If the judge breaks into your house and steals $15,000, he has no immunity. That’s because his immunity extends only as far as his “jurisdiction.” A judge who acts without jurisdiction, let’s say, he uses his official judge stamp to give Mr. Jones’ property to the judge’s buddy Mr. Scoundrel, the judge will arrange for Mr. Jones to be prosecuted if he complains about the theft. The corrupt judges stick together, and the other judges are cowards.

The Republic Cannot Survive Dishonest Judges

“Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely” (Lord Acton 1887), but corruption destroys! The Founding Fathers gave the courts great power to balance the power in the legislative and executive branches of government. Judges’ power rests in the public’s trust in their integrity. As Liu pointed out, a society without trust ceases to function. A major reason that American society is teetering on the brink of an abyss is a horrendously corrupt judicial system which oppresses the poor while catering to the rich and powerful.

A First Step – End Judicial Immunity

The simplistic answer that judges cannot do their jobs if they have to worry about the consequences of their actions is no longer satisfactory. A judiciary without integrity destroys the trust by which our Republic functions.

Nessel: Macomb County Probate judge’s guardianship appointment violated law

Kathryn George
Macomb County Probate Court Judge Kathryn George

A Macomb County judge violated state law when she appointed a guardian-and-conservator company that reaped financial benefits from the appointment, according to Attorney General Dana Nessel.

State Public Administrator Michael Moody, on Nessel’s behalf, argues in a legal document Friday that Probate Judge Kathryn George created a law violation by appointing Clinton township-based Caring Hearts of Michigan Inc. as guardian and conservator for Robert Mitchell and Barbara Delbridge last November, over a daughter and stepdaughter of the couple.

Caring Hearts hired Executive Care to perform the care for the couple, according to the state. Both companies are owned by Cathy Kirk. In addition, Caring Hearts employed the firm of her husband Robert Kirk — Kirk, Huth, Lange and Badalamenti — for legal services. The trio of companies share the same address on Hall Road, east of Romeo Plank Road.

Caring Hearts charged more than $250,000 for about six months of care.

George through a spokeswoman declined to comment Monday, referring the matter to court officials.

The Attorney General in the filing Friday seeks to intervene in the Probate case, saying that all prior transactions are “voidable” due to the arrangement.

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel

The law in question says, the “Court shall not appoint as guard an agency, public or private, that financially benefits from directly providing housing, medical, mental health or social services to the legally incapacitated individual.”

Moody comments in the brief, “The intention behind this provision is to prevent conflicts of interest.”

“All of these financial transactions set forth in Caring Hearts’ Final Account are presume to be affected by a conflict between personal and fiduciary interests, and therefore voidable,” Moody adds.

Caring Hearts attorney Edward Nahat disputed Nessel’s claims Monday, saying state attorneys misapplied the law and should not have sought to enter the case.

“The Attorney General’s petition … misapplied the statute to these circumstances and is over-reaching by trying to intervene in a case she shouldn’t be involved in,” Nahat said.

He said the law quoted by state lawyers applies to investments and housing transactions, neither of which Caring Hearts and Executive Services were involved.

He said George knew of the arrangement.

Nahat called Nessel’s involvement “heavy handed,” noting that it has drawn publicity.

He said Caring Hearts supports a review of the accounting and charges in the case.

“A remedy is already available to the family,” he said. “They can get their own day in court. They don’t need the Attorney General’s help.”

Probate Court in September 2018 instituted a policy that requires a company or fudiciary must reveal whether a person related to the company or fudiciary is performing a service for the fudiciary or company, according to John Brennan, deputy court administrator.

Brennan said he does not believe the relationships were disclosed in the Mitchell and Delbridge cases.

Expenditures will be reviewed over the next several months. A hearing in the case is scheduled for Jan. 10.

Nessel issued a news release on the matter Monday.

“It is absolutely incumbent on the courts to ensure that the state’s guardianship system is providing properly for the vulnerable and that the court-appointed conservators fulfill their fiduciary responsibilities to those in their custody,” she said. “That does not appear to be happening in the case of Caring Hearts, which was appointed by Judge Kathryn George as guardian and conservator for Robert Lee Mitchell and Barbara Delbridge.”

Nessel added that the “Estates and Protected Individuals Code specifically prohibits certain financial self-dealing by the guardian with respect to the ward.”

Nessel announced in May that George was under investigation for her role in the case involving the couple following reports initiated by WXYZ-TV (Channel 7).

State Supreme Court Chief Justice Bridget McCormack and Macomb Chief Judge James Biernat Jr. at that time of the announcement released a joint statement in support of the probe.

Family members of the couple said George should have appointed them as guardians and conservators to watch over the care and finances of the couple, both 70 or older and in declining health.

Robert Mitchell and Barbara Delbridge

Mitchell’s daughter, Marcie, and other family members complained their visits were limited and that caregivers installed a 6-foot fence around the property near Hall Road and Van Dyke Avenue that blocked the vision of family members who resided next door. The said the couple were virtual prisoners in their home.

They also raised questions about the guardian and conservator company’s spending from the couple’s more than $2.5 million in assets.

Caring Hearts and Executive Services in early June withdrew from serving as guardian and conservator. Attorney Terry Gilsenan was named temporary guardian, and attorney Martin Brosnan was name temporary conservator.

On June 26, Judge Biernat, who had taken over the case, granted Marcie Mitchell guardianship over her father, Robert, and Anita Little gained guardianship over her sister, Delbridge.

The pair on Friday also were named conservators, although each has to file a bond and paperwork in order to take over.

Attorney Frank Cusumano said Monday he plans to file a legal action on Little’s behalf “to unwind the transactions” involving Caring Hearts, Executive Services and the law firm.

“Anita Little wants to do her part to make sure that this activity does not occur and injure another family,” Cusumano said.

The older couple are currently residing in a facility in Genesee County, closer Marcie Mitchell’s Clarkston home.

The case developed as Nessel has been vowing to crack down on elder abuse. She formed Michigan Elder Abuse Task Force earlier this year shortly after she took office. This summer, she conducted a statewide “listening tour” to hear complaints about elder abuse and complaints about Probate Court, which oversees will and estates of incapacitated and deceased individuals.

Robert Kirk last month was removed as a state Public Administrator for appointment to certain Probate cases.

George has served as a Macomb Probate Judge since 2003. More than a decade ago, George came under the scrutiny of state officials and removed as chief probate judge for her relationship with a now-defunct guardianship company, conflict with the second probate judge and dysfunction at the court.

From TKAB: Dr. Lillie White being exploited in Fla. gship where her assets are drained and she is isolated from friends and family

FLORIDA SENIOR ISOLATED FROM FAMILY OF 50 RELATIVES FOR THREE YEARS DESPITE VIDEO OF HER ASKING FOR HER SISTER, NIECES & NEPHEWS

Guardian refuses to let anyone speak with her without a “passcode,” court ignores motions, and care facility refused to disclose safety preparations for Hurricane Dorian

DELAND, FL – On Friday, September 6, 2019, Dr. Lillie Sykes White turned 91. Her family of almost fifty people wanted to celebrate her. On video, released today, she said she wants to see her sister, nieces and nephews. Yet, the estranged granddaughter Lisa Marie Rene of Maryland–who no one in the family knows–is blocking them from any contact. A team of attorneys are benefiting from the $4 million estate and the Seventh Judicial Circuit Court seems to be endorsing the exploitation. It is tantamount to human trafficking but no one in Florida leadership is helping despite recent guardianship scandals. Video can be viewed at    https://youtu.be/ssC0XcFCgtQ

“I called the facility where Lillie is being held and they refused to let me know what preparations they were making for Hurricane Dorian,” said Janie Sykes-Kennedy, Dr. White’s 83-year-old sister. “We called on Lillie’s birthday and couldn’t speak with her. The administrator said she may not even receive our cards. This is inhumane,” she added.
In 2012, Dr. White was entrapped in a guardianship by family friend Chauncey Ford and the granddaughter. Sykes-Kennedy joined her sister to fight off their legal actions. On August 30, 2016, Dr. White left her Palm Coast home with her niece Sheila Bryant in order to go to the doctor. After Ms. Bryant was called in the other room to fill out paperwork, emergency temporary guardian, Sara Caldwell, Esq. of Daytona Beach and Attorney ad Litem, Tance Roberts, Esq. of St. Augustine, both appointed unnecessarily by Circuit Judge Margaret W. Hudson of Flagler County, seized Dr. White from the waiting room. There was no notice, danger or emergency. Police reports stated that Dr. White was safe in her home and “didn’t seem incapacitated.” She retained the right to choose with whom to socialize, and she wanted to be with her sister in the house she built for retirement. Yet, the court agents refused to disclose her location and Judge Hudson ignored multiple Emergency Motions for Judicial Review. Dr. White was stripped of all rights, her home was sold to pay attorney fees, and the guardian told neighbors she had died.

“My aunt was kidnapped under color of law and the attorneys have been making up reasons to justify their actions after-the-fact,” said Teresa Kay-Aba Kennedy, Dr. White’s niece and producer of    The Deception of Protection. “Across the country, guardianship laws are being manipulated and used as a weapon to separate seniors from their families, silence them and steal their estates. We need public outrage and federal intervention,” she added.

In 2018, Ms. Caldwell resigned. The Office of Public and Professional Guardians (OPPG) was conducting an investigation into allegations of wrongdoing. At the same time, the family found Dr. White via private investigators. Her sister and niece visited in November 2018. Even though it was joyous, Dr. White is on lockdown again. Behind closed doors, the Flagler Court appointed Ms. Rene Guardian and Trustee even though she did not qualify. She had filed bankruptcy and had been removed as Trustee by the Orange County Court. The Fifth District Court of Appeal affirmed the decision. There was also an Orange County Court Order denying her visitation and communication based on Dr. White’s direct testimony in court and affidavit stating she was being victimized by her. The Flagler Court failed to let anyone else in the family know about Ms. Rene’s appointments, and thus, they could not object. Judge Hudson warned the attorneys about using Dr. White’s estate as a “cash cow,” but continued to sign off on the excessive billing. Florida law requires that the Court follow Dr. White’s expressed wishes, yet the decisions have been entirely inconsistent with her stated desires which are well-documented over the past eight years. She had taken the granddaughter out of her Trust in 2012 before the improper incapacity ruling and isolation from family.
“I was with Aunt Lillie for five years and it’s heartbreaking that I can’t even speak with her now,” said Ms. Bryant.
Anyone who calls for Dr. White requires a “passcode.” Multiple family members have reached out to Ms. Rene for the code but she is not returning calls. Ms. Rene’s attorneys at Shuffield Lowman in Orlando refuse to provide the code. Despite a new judge, the Court has ignored Ms. Sykes-Kennedy’s motions. Contact with Dr. White by her sister, nieces and nephews is being “unreasonably withheld,” which violates her rights and the U.S. Constitution. The family fears she will be medicated to death to cover up the fraud or isolated so long she will lose hope.
In the video from the visit, Dr. White herself said, “It’s amazing. I never thought anything like this could have happened… They’ve got to be crazy… I’m ready to go… I didn’t know about all of this–people being able to take my money for nothing… They think they can get away with it but once I start talking they’ll shut up.” She wants to “make it right” and added, “I’m going to take them to court and sue them for using my home and using me.”

From KKD: status of guardianship in Illinois is still code red

On Monday, September 9, 2019, 08:25:55 PM CDT, kenneth ditkowsky <kenditkowsky@yahoo.com> wrote:
Indeed – Shame on me – in my America every day the HUMAN TRAFFICKING IN GRANDMA CONTINUES unabated.

I heard from an Illinois citizen that his wife was seized by the Illinois Public Guardian and he and her son have been barred from any contact with her.     Exactly how a guardian (including the public guardian) could have been appointed is a major mystery.     Several medical professionals have denied that the wife is incompetent – however, the Court is reported to have determined that the citizen (and his wife) failed to meet the standard of determining that she is not in need of guardian.

It appears that on the 18th Floor of the Daley Center in Chicago the 14th Amendment has been abrogated and Statutes regulating guardianship have been reduced to the criteria of human trafficking in the elderly.

The Illinois Statutes define guardianship and the standard of proof, to wit:

(755 ILCS 5/11a-2) (from Ch. 110 1/2, par. 11a-2)
Sec. 11a-2. “Person with a disability” defined.) “Person with a disability” means a person 18 years or older who (a) because of mental deterioration or physical incapacity is not fully able to manage his person or estate, or (b) is a person with mental illness or a person with a developmental disability and who because of his mental illness or developmental disability is not fully able to manage his person or estate, or (c) because of gambling, idleness, debauchery or excessive use of intoxicants or drugs, so spends or wastes his estate as to expose himself or his family to want or suffering, or (d) is diagnosed with fetal alcohol syndrome or fetal alcohol effects.
(Source: P.A. 99-143, eff. 7-27-15.)

 

    (755 ILCS 5/11a-3) (from Ch. 110 1/2, par. 11a-3)
Sec. 11a-3. Adjudication of disability; Power to appoint guardian.
(a) Upon the filing of a petition by a reputable person or by the alleged person with a disability himself or on its own motion, the court may adjudge a person to be a person with a disability, but only if it has been demonstrated by clear and convincing evidence that the person is a person with a disability as defined in Section 11a-2. If the court adjudges a person to be a person with a disability, the court may appoint (1) a guardian of his person, if it has been demonstrated by clear and convincing evidence that because of his disability he lacks sufficient understanding or capacity to make or communicate responsible decisions concerning the care of his person, or (2) a guardian of his estate, if it has been demonstrated by clear and convincing evidence that because of his disability he is unable to manage his estate or financial affairs, or (3) a guardian of his person and of his estate.
(b) Guardianship shall be utilized only as is necessary to promote the well-being of the person with a disability, to protect him from neglect, exploitation, or abuse, and to encourage development of his maximum self-reliance and independence. Guardianship shall be ordered only to the extent necessitated by the individual’s actual mental, physical and adaptive limitations.
(Source: P.A. 99-143, eff. 7-27-15.)

 

The statute is quite clear – the burden of proving the need for a guardian is not only placed on the petitioner, but requires the highest standard of proof (in a civil case), to wit:

Clear and Convincing evidence

This standard was not determined by the Illinois legislature as a whim – it is mandated by the 5th and the 14th Amendment, the Illinois Constitution, and the Americans with Disabilities Act.     The statute is also very limited, to wit:

(b) Guardianship shall be utilized only as is necessary to promote the well-being of the person with a disability, to protect him from neglect, exploitation, or abuse, and to encourage development of his maximum self-reliance and independence. Guardianship shall be ordered only to the extent necessitated by the individual’s actual mental, physical and adaptive limitations.
(Source: P.A. 99-143, eff. 7-27-15

 

The words of the Statute unfortunately are being routinely ignored by ‘corrupt’ judges, attorneys appointed as guardian ad litems, and persons appointed as guardians.     What has occurred however is the ‘birth’ of a cottage industry – i.e. the HUMAN TRAFFICKING IN THE ELDERLY.

If you google the subject of the appointment of guardians you will get a sanitized impression of a legal process designed to assist the elderly = not a predatory criminal enterprise.    That impression is wrong in a great number of cases.     Even more serious is the fact that these criminal enterprises have been and are being documented by many – and almost totally ignored by the judiciary, the judiciary disciplinary commissions, our elected officials, local law enforcement,  the public, the media, and until recently even Federal Law Enforcement.

There is no shortage of expose’        Blogs have been published exposing in vivid detail that modern Holocaust and Gulag, to wit: Probate Sharks, NASGA, MaryGSykes, AAAPG *****.     The Oct 9, 2017 NEW YORKER, the Wall Street Journal, the New York times ***** have written articles exposing the criminal enterprise, and currently in Florida another Guardian has been exposed well exceeding any possible authority she might have had.    Dr. Samuel Sugar has written a book (Guardianship) that leaves all doubt as to the MO of the miscreants and just how they get away with overt Kidnapping, extortion, intimidation, theft, tax evasion, money laundering, conspiracy, civil rights violations etc.    Janet Phelan has similarly exposed details concerning the nitty gritty of the ‘elder cleansing’ ******

The Government Accounting Office has also published several (4) reports to Congress detailing the cottage industry and while mostly generating yawns, a couple of bills duplicating remedies that should be inherent in the RULE OF LAW and primary laws of a Democracy have been passed.     Only recently has the Federal Law authorities been noted to be looking into this massive and incredibly lucrative criminal enterprise.       The fact that some victims and their families are reporting the emergence of Federal law Enforcement doing HONEST INVESTIGATIONS is heartening.

The foregoing aside – it is apparent that the ‘beat goes on’ and the arrogance of the POLITICAL AND JUDICIAL ELITE who are actively engaged in the human trafficking in the elderly continues unabated.       In almost every case we note the following:

1.   Isolation of the victim.      Grandma is seized, and separated from her family and prior life.    A guardian ad litem or some other Court official points out to the Court that grandma is upset when she finds herself isolated and the GAL concludes that the family agitates Grandma.    Thus, to visit Grandma the family has to pay a Court related firm to supervise visitation.

2.   Appoint a guardian and seize assets.    If the Statute is followed prior to a guardian being appointed the Court must hold a hearing and comply with DUE PROCESS.     This is obviated by the Gal reporting to the Court that grandma has waived her right to due process, notice, hearing, clear and convincing evidence of her actual disability if any, and her humanity.       The Court without further then appoints a guardian who immediately seizes all the assets that can be located – including but not limited to the assets of Grandpa and any member of the family who objects to the human trafficking in grandma.   (NB.  Sometimes a family member has to be appointed guardian – if that family member does not co-operate in the elder cleansing felonies he/she is accused of stealing from grandma and punished.    A then more co-operative guardian is appointed.

3.   Opioids and other chemicals are routinely administered to grandma so that she is docile.    Federal and State health care programs (and some insurance programs) are very generous in providing the cash to support the continued kidnapping and isolation.     The Nursing homes are usually owned by large contributors to the dominant political party and they are grateful to their benefactors.   Come election time grandma votes for the candidates of the political party.     The Government supplies ample fund to fully compensate all the miscreants.

4.   A family member or interested person who objects to the HUMAN TRAFFICKING in Grandma is hauled before the Court, threatened with sanctions, contempt (jail), and other punishments.    If that family member should accidentally remember that this court’s venue is the United States of America and not Soviet Russia he/she is terrorized and subjected to criminal judicial criminals that would shock a Soviet Judge’s conscience.     Lawyers who interfere with the process are suspended from the practice of law by the State Supreme Court.    (All hearings are of the Kangaroo variety – i.e. the result is determined prior to the hearing)

5.   When Grandma’s assets are depleted and there are no more funds to be stolen – Grandma suddenly expires!      To alleviate the sadness of the even, cremation occurs as if grandma were an Orthodox Jew.

6.   The court approves all the accountings of the guardians and closes the estate.

 

Dr. Sugar’s book suggests that the ‘feeding tube’ scenario is used to make certain that the Carolyn Wyman situation is not repeated.   (Ms. Wyman’s son recognized that his mother was perfectly competent and that she was going to be ‘[elder cleansed’     The son, entered the nursing home, and spirited his mother not only out of the home, but to a Western state.     His mother opened her business and made a substantial income to support herself not only embarrassing the corrupt GAL, Judge, Attorneys etc.     She did not return to Illinois leaving the miscreants with an embarrassment.    Had the guardian not been negligent and installed a feeding tube, Ms. Wyman would never have escaped and her son could never have written a book detailing the trafficking in his mother.      (If you want to learn more about Mrs. Wyman give JoAnne Denison as call.    Attorney Denison is actively exposing the criminal conspiracy (my words) – Mr. Jerome Larkin, the Illinois Disciplinary commission – refers to Attorney Denison’s exposing of criminals in black robes as “yelling fire in a crowded theater!)

The Illinois Statute is clear – even if it is ignored.     It also is the Standard and consistent with the mandate of the 14th Amendment.     The guardianship for grandma is not a trivial thing – it is a terrorist attack on America that now has claimed more victims that 9/11!        The home grown terrorists in Illinois are elected to public office year after year and will be continued to be elected – UNLESS the United States of America gets really serious and demonstrates that the CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA actually has meaning and is not just a collection of words.

When the bleeding hearts go on their scavenger hunts for alleged atrocities conducted by our government it is interesting that they ignore the modern holocaust / gulag that is being committed against GRANDMA!      The irony is that YOU and I are both potential victims of the human trafficking in Grandma!     It is in our self interest to demand and see to it that the corrupt judiciary and their co=conspirators are brought to Justice.     It is either them or us!     Intelligent people should recognize their own self interest?

 

Democracy is not a spectator sport.

Remember the words of the statute lost in the translation by the corrupt judges who have anointed those criminals who would separate us from our liberty, humanity, property and Americanism, to wit:

 

 

(b) Guardianship shall be utilized only as is necessary to promote the well-being of the person with a disability, to protect him from neglect, exploitation, or abuse, and to encourage development of his maximum self-reliance and independence. Guardianship shall be ordered only to the extent necessitated by the individual’s actual mental, physical and adaptive limitations.

From KDD: Guardianship still dangerous to your health and welfare in Cook County

Today’s elderly is faced with a ‘brave new world’ that is foreign to them.      At one time it was actually safe to grow old and being elderly ipso facto warranted respect.      Yes, there were predators who preyed on the elderly, but they were not lauded, elected to public office, and protected by the Political elite.

The human trafficking in the elderly (elder cleansing felonies) today are a an epidemic and a cottage industry fostered openly by many in our government.     A lawyer who objects to the predation exhibited by a ‘court appointed’ guardian is considered to be a miscreant whose objections are akin to “yelling fire in a crowded theater” and such a deviant and bad person to warrant long suspensions of his;/her law license.    A family member who objects to the common technique of debilitation of an otherwise healthy (but targeted) elderly person is routinely held up to ridicule, contempt of court punishments, confiscation of assets etc.     Indeed, in cases disclosed by the blog AAAPG, NASGA, probate sharks, MaryGSykes, ****, four GAO reports, the Oct 9, 2017 New Yorker article, a Wall Street Journala New York Times Article etc. the Modius Operandi is almost always similar.     Dr. Sugar’s book GUARDIANSHIP details that process (and is a must read).    The net, net, is that a culture of predation has grown up in America (and especially in our Court system) that is designed to surcharge our health care system by more than 700%, confiscate the savings, the liberty, the property, and the human rights of the elderly, and ravage any semblance of honor, honesty, or efficacy in our institutions.

The 1st Amendment is being trashed by the governmental corruption that has polluted our court system and allows for the Court to appoint a guardian for a fully competent elderly person targeted by Political and Judicial elitists and deprive that individual of his/her liberty, property, associations, life and Constitutional rights without actual due process of law.

As many have pointed out the MO is clear.     A targeted senior is taken into custody by a Court appointed guardian and after the administration of mind deadening drugs literally stripped of his/her assets, dignity, property, rights, humanity etc.      It really does not matter if this senior is competent – i.e. knows the objects of his bounty, extent and nature of his property, and can execute a simple business transaction – the seniors assets, benefits from federal and state health care and other assets are laid out on the table to distribute amongst the established political and judicial elite.

Most States – on paper – have procrustean written procedures to make certain that a n individuals 1st, 4th, 5th and 14th amendment rights are protected – however, as indicated in the Mary Sykes case 09 P 4585 (Circuit Court of Cook County) a corrupt judge can and will obviate all protections.       The Court regulators, gadflies, court observers, private citizens, media, law enforcement et al either do not care or are disinterested in the assault on America that is being perpetrated.     In Sykes that Statute (755 ILCS 5/11a – 10) sets up criteria that must be followed as to grant JURISDICTION.      A review of the file in Sykes indicates that every safeguard was thwarted.     Even the required summons was not served!     No hearing was held.    No notice of hearing was even attempted.      NB.   Illinois recognizes that judicial fraud is real and that it is tempting to judges many of whom have paid large sums of money to the Cook County Democratic Party to become judges, so 755 ILCS 5/11a – 3 not only sets forth strict rules as to whom may be provided a guardian, but sets a high burden of proof to establish the need and strict limitations on the guardian’s powers.

Of course, statutory protections are meaningless when they are ignored.     And of course, when corruption is rampant citizen protections are meaningless.      It appears that Dr. Sugar has picked up the torch and in his quiet unassuming manner is attempting to organize us – the “great unwashed” out of our complacency and maybe strike a blow for FREEDOM, decency, and honor.
