And a Happy Easter to all of you out there who have been erased from a loved senior or disabled person.

I know that this past weekend was very hard on many, many children and nieces and nephews who could not see a beloved grandparent because the state has erased them from your lives, issued false protective orders, issued false directions to nursing homes, etc.– all in the name of money.

Your elderly or disabled person was sold and that was it.

In order to perfect the sale, a letter or order issued in a summary manner saying no one can visit them.

This means they can be abused and abused again and no one will know.

My heart goes  out to you at this time and I pray for healing and comfort for you.

This has happened in soooo many case in Illinois and throughout the nation, it is a disgusting, horrible situation that simply cannot be ignored.

Mary Sykes–isolated for 6 years from 20+ friends and family–no more Easters for her with her beloved ones; Carol Wyman–isolated for months until she escaped from Illinois to loving son in Colorado; Alan Frake–isolated for years from Son Gary Frake who saw his dad only a handful of times over the years because visits had to be supervised by the evil Tom Kleinhenz that the court loves; Alice Gore–isolated for 10 months from over 20+ friends and family, forbidden to live with loving daughter who wanted to take her in, forced to live in dangerous Warren Barr nursing home where she was narcotized to death after 29 gold teeth pulled; Jay Brouckmeersch–medically neglected in probate court and then narcotized to death; Helen Rector–isolated from beloved Christian minister daughter who was told not to talk to her mother about God, angels or religion in the months prior to mom’s death where she was narcotized to death by guardian with attorney’s assistance and so on and so forth.

You all know the stories.

The real Easter question is where is our savior, our special investigator that will give all the money back to the families and indict the murderers?

I wish you all Easter, Passover and all spring holiday best wishes.


From Elena Federova to Presiding Judge Timothy Evans

Scores of people have filed valid grievances with Timothy Evans, presiding judge of Cook County Court System, only to get a form letter back.

The ARDC told me I could not ask Timothy Evans if he was on the side of Corruption or Truth and Justice, for some reason that really bothered them.

It is my understanding that TE was “given” that seat by our former mayor Daley because he was afraid TE would get all the black votes and win an election. What a croc for getting and even keeping that seat.  If that’s true, why isn’t it investigated and why isn’t he removed.  As we learned with Gov Blago, political seats must not be “let’s make a deal.” And what about that “scheduling department” of his?  They always transfer cases behind closed doors and just “promise” you it was fair and random.

If that’s true, why can’t we see and why do I hear rumors and actually see it for myself that insurance companies who pay off get the judges who always rule in favor of defendants and favored crony big law firms pay off and always get judges who rule in favor of plaintiffs.

If this is true, why isn’t the public able to see the random case generator that is always done “in the back room” with a promise of impartiality.

Me thinks these ladies doth protesteth far too much.

From Elena, she makes some great points:

Subject: Public comments to Chief Judge Evans and suggestions for improvements

April 14, 2017
Hon.  Chief Judge Timothy C. Evans
50 W. Washington St.  Room 2600
Chicago IL 60602 Dear All,
Re: Public comments and Notice pursuant to 18 USC §4 to investigate corruption in your Court
Dear Honorable Chief Judge Timothy C. Evans :
I am contacting your office and request to investigate rampant judicial corruption in your court and report us which  steps taken by your office to improve public confidence. I also suggest you to start educating  IL citizens about their real chances  to find justice in your Court.  I further respectfully request your office to add to your Court’s  website a page where full biographies of your judges, along with their photos will be displayed for the public.  Right now most public offices and private law Firms have bios and photo IDs of their employees, while Cook County Judges profiles lack this essential information. The biography must disclose each judge relationships with other judges and their donors, as well and donations amounts. For example:
Judge John C. Griffin ,a  long-time friend with Justice Daniel J. Pierce, who is a 1965  class-mate with Appeal Court Justice Thomas E. Hoffman, both long-time friends with Edward Burke and his wife Anne Burke whom Daniel J. Piece gave substantial amounts of money to get elected in exchange of his appointment as a judge from 14th Subcirtcuit and transfer to Appeal Court without election. Griffin, who was appointed by Supreme Court where Justice Pierce’s friend’s wife Anne Burke is a Justice, was the main donor for his election. Before election Griffin was charged by  IL Board of Elections for deception about his in-kinds donations, but still got judicial position, which has absolutely nothing to do with his connections with Justice Pierce and Burkes’ family; and was promoted to be a Supervising Judge despite adverse  public complaints for fixing cases for substantial amounts of money; lies from the bench  that he does not know who are his donors; and Administrative and Federal Court legal proceedings against him. Griffin donated about $30K to himself, received $500.00 from Justice  Pierce; as well numerous donations from real estate lawyers, developers and insurance companies”; or
Judge Robert E. Senechalle, protégé of Michael Madigan who obtained his seat through “Madigan’s List”;
Judge James P. Flannery, Jr., former Assistant Attorney General, supported by Daley family ”;
Judge Irvin Solganick, partner for Vdrolyak law Firm, who obtained his judicial position though Sulski-Solganick stunt, where Rod Blagojevich was helping to sign Solganick’s petitions”’
Judge John J. Curry, Jr. a long-time friend  to Tyrone Fahner, 1981-83 IL Attorney General. Curry struggled for six years to obtain a slot for election, which became available in 2014 upon retirement of  Judge Anthony Iosco (who in 1998  was not recommended for the bench; a Democrat’s candidate was preferred over Iosco,  but Iosco was elected anyway in 2000, when he registered his committee a month before election). John Curry, former Republican Party Treasurer, was the main sponsor for his election where he and his wife, a well-connected financier,  donated and loaned to him about $100,000.00. Curry was not opposed by any Democrats because his patron and former boss Tyrone Fahner, who is a top partner at Mayer Brown LLP, donated substantial amounts of money to Democrats Burke, his wife, Justice Theis and Mayor Daley, or those parties who regularly stack our benches with their cronies. Mayer Brown LLP represents many banks in foreclosure cases which  Judge John J. Curry, Jr. is currently handling as a judge.
  Judge Clare Quish, appointed by IL Supreme Court former clerk for Justice Theis and partner for Schulyer Roche Grisham, where another former Justice Theis clerk judge Jean Prendergast Rooney was as a partner. Quish, Rooney and Schulyer Roche Grisham donated at least $30,000.00  combined funds to help Justice Theis be elected
Appointed by IL Supreme Court Judge Elizabeth A. Karkula, wife of well-connected Judge Paul A. Karkula, who was NOT recommended to be a judge but somehow found his way to the bench. Both worked for Vdrolyak law firm who gave substantial donations to Justice Freeman. In 1998 Paul and Elizabeth Karkula created a joint Committee to offer IL public their judicial services. Karkulas did not succeed and the committee  was closed
Judge Martin Moltz, former Assistant Attorney General. In 1992 Moltz created a Committee “Citizens to Elect Martin Moltz as a Judge”. Until 2000 the main supporters to the Committee were Martin Moltz and his treasurer. In 2000 Moltz dissolved his committee and in 2007 he was appointed to be an Associate Judge. Moltz was regularly sued in Federal Court for violations of civil rights, Due Process rights, corruption and racket. Moltz customary rules in favor of predatory collects, including his verdict in favor of LVNV Funding LLC who collected debt in IL without being licensed. Other predatory collectors now use this verdict in support of their cases”.
I also request to disclose on the Court site how much money your judges received from various lawyers to get elected, it will help the public to make an educated choice which lawyer they should hire.  For example, Judge Griffin directed me to hire a low budget lawyer  to be “fairly heard” in his Court while he perfectly knew that this is not how the system  works. Low budget lawyer would just increase my expenses, without any chance for a  fair hearing  because I regularly see how Judge Griffin rules in favor of a better funded party, especially if they are related to real estate business or large law firms. For example, Chicago Association of Realtors v. Geller (or Holland &Knight vs. Solo Practitioner), a questionable defamation case which Griffin approved to proceed, while CRA was not able to prove ANY facts against Geller and dropped the case voluntarily.  
Compare it to Griffin’s verdict in my case: ProSe vs. 7 large Law Firms, including  Hinschaw &Culbertson (who have a personal Judge, Dad of their partner, Thomas Mulroy, III, sitting in your in Law Division; a personal judge Horan, appointed by Justice Theis H&C partner,  in Municipal Division; over 800 very sizable donations under firm’s name to various judges( and many  additional  from their individual lawyers ); $4,550 donations to Judge Thomas Hogan whom judge Flannery placed on his stead to approve bogus consolidation with my case, a favorable verdict from Justices Harris ,Daniel Pierce and Simon  in case against predatory collectors  Blitt&Gains; Gibbs v. B&G, 14-123681;  substantial amounts of money [to Judge Griffin] to dismiss my case, ect). Of course I have no chance to be fairy heard in Griffin’s Court  without hiring a very specific lawyer – the one who gave  more money to judges than Hinschaw&Culbertson .
It will be much more helpful if I knew upfront about Judge Griffin and Justice Pierce relations  (who was the first judge on my case, until your daughters  or other employees “accidentally” transferred it to Pierce friend, Judge Griffin) , as well and their connections with Appeal and Supreme Court Justices and Mr. Burke.
It would be obvious from the beginning that if I, for example, hire Mr. Philip Corboy’s nephew, partner  Daniel Kotin, to represent me;  and my opponents  hire any Mayer Brown LLP associate, judge John C.  Griffin  will rule in favor of Mayer Brown LLP  because they donated much more money to judges than Mr. Kotin.
But if I hire Mr. Steven Elrod, son of Judge Richard Elrod, and partner of Holland & Knight, Judge John C. Griffin would most likely rule in favor of Mr. Elrod.
It would save me thousands of dollars  wasted on your filing fees, copies and postage, as well as years of nerves in your Court; and definitely improve my confidence in justice  (with the twist, of course).
I am sending my request and suggestions to all other authorities, including IL Board of Elections and IL Supreme Court, and also request them to provide me your respond about the steps to combat corruption in our Courts and improve public confidence in Justice (for which we pay you very substantial money from the Budget).
Very truly yours,
Elena Fedorova

From Dr. Klimek on the rising rate of teen girl suicide

to jdenison
Hi JoAnne:

Here is an article published in a reputable journal.   It’s on the “surprising” increase in suicide of adolescent girls.  Because sexual abuse is sooo harmful and difficult to admit to anyone (a common PTSD symptom)  they usually act out their pain and their shame.  Just wanted you to know the bigger picture of all this early abuse, if you hadn’t been aware of it. That’s all.  ***** speaks so highly of you that I’m glad you are working with him.  He’s a miracle in his own right.

Sincere regards,


Kevin, M.D.

Why Are Suicide Rates Rising?

Completed attempts are just the tip of the iceberg

  • by Christopher Johnson MD
  • April 13, 2017
Those of us who work in pediatric intensive care have frequent encounters with the problem of suicide and attempted suicide. It has seemed to me for some years that the numbers are increasing, and this has been shown to be the case. After years of declining, the suicide rate in our country has been increasing, now at about 125% of the rate of several decades ago.
This increase accelerated after 2006. Although all age groups showed an increase, the rate among women, particularly adolescent girls, took a notable jump. In 2012 suicide was the second leading cause of death in adolescents ages 12 to 19 years, accounting for more deaths in this age group than cancer, heart disease, influenza, pneumonia, diabetes mellitus, human immunodeficiency virus, and stroke combined. Here are some recent statistics of women from the CDC, although they don’t quite break out adolescents they way I would like.
Actual suicide is just the tip of the iceberg, since, at least among adolescent girls who attempt it, typically, with a drug overdose, there are as many as 90 attempts for every death. Since a large number of these attempts end up in the PICU, I’m not surprised we are seeing more and more of them come through our doors. A few other points are worth noting here. The success statistics for adolescent boys are unfortunately much higher because boys tend to use more violent means than girls, such as hanging, firearms, or automobiles.
However, although rates for boys are up slightly, they really haven’t changed much. It’s also important to realize suicide attempts are a spectrum — some are more serious than others. Many girls take an overdose and then immediately tell somebody about it. These are often called suicide gestures and can be quite impulsive. Some use the term “cry for help” to describe them. More ominous are children who carefully plan, such as by hoarding powerful drugs in secret and taking them in a setting where they won’t be found. They may leave a suicide note. I couldn’t find any data about whether these different categories are discordant in the rate increase, but I assume the two are tracking together. Finally, a child may not know which drugs are truly dangerous. I have seen very serious suicide attempts by children who take overdoses of what we know to be innocuous medications, but the child does not. Regardless of what category the attempt is, of course, the child needs mental health services subsequently. These days we find a child’s text messages to be very helpful. So why the increase in adolescent girls?
Presumably, suicide rates are rough and ready markers for rates of depression. Is teen depression increasing? A 2006 study says no, at least up until then. What about the last decade, since 2006 appears to be the year suicide rates inflected upward in adolescent girls. I did find a snapshot for 2015 from the CDC of the number of adolescents who experienced a major depressive episode during the year — girls were nearly 20%.
A recent study in Pediatrics, the journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics, found a nearly 50% increase in adolescent depression over the past 11 years. Mental health problems are notoriously difficult to study because, of course, we have no definitive test for them — no blood test, no fancy brain scans. We mostly rely on surveys. Still, it does seem something changed about a decade ago, and this is probably reflected in the increase in suicide attempts among girls at roughly the same rate as the increase in major depression.
There are a few other things to keep in mind. Prescriptions of antidepressants have increased dramatically, particularly of drugs in the class we call selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors (SSRIs). Common brand names for these are Prozac, Paxil, Celexa, and Zoloft. There has been concern that in the short term after starting them, SSRIs may actually increase thoughts about suicide in adolescents. Another new development is social media. Teenagers, especially those in difficult home situations or who are socially isolated, are quite susceptible to bullying behavior, and cyberbullying has emerged as a new threat to such children. There have been several dramatic cases in the news about suicides following cyberbullying.
I’m sorry to say I really don’t know what explains these increasing rates, except to point out the overall rate of suicide for the whole population has also increased to some extent; it was 10.5 deaths per 100,000 persons in 1999 and is now 13 per 100,000. Middle-aged males have seen a dramatic jump in rates. It appears to me that, for many possible reasons, there is more social anxiety and depression in America, which in turn increases suicide rates. Adolescent girls are feeling this in particular. You might say our entire society is issuing a cry for help.

From Elena Federova–how the Chicago authorities laugh at those with no power when they abuse them

On Thu, Apr 13, 2017 at 5:03 AM, chicago summer <> wrote:

I hope you all seen how City of Chicago officers who serve O’Hara airport, helped United Airline to abuse a paying customer whom they violently dragged from the plane to accommodate “more important” passengers.
The accident clearly illustrates how lawless is our City and how helpless are people who are facing oppression and abuses from a more powerful party, usually a corporation.
This precedent very much reminded me our Courts where more powerful and better funded parties get full support, regardless how malicious and unlawful are their actions. Basically, the ARDC and Jerome Larkin were those “officers” who  “dragged” Lanre Amu, Ken Ditkowsky and you from the legal profession in the same manner as the passenger from United, regardless of all rights.
According to the eyewitness, city officers were even laughing at the victim of their abuses! I am sure that judges are also laughing at us, too, when they attack us with their threats from the bench, and disbar lawyers, totally confident in their impunity.
 I don’t know how many millions will Dr. Dao demand from the City of Chicago but I am absolutely confident  that these money (as well as defense costs) will be paid by us while all responsible parties will retain their seats in the public offices.
“The passenger dragged from his seat aboard a Sunday night flight at O’Hare International Airport took the first step toward potential legal action against United Airlines or the city on Wednesday. David Dao, who has retained a high-powered personal injury lawyer, asked the Cook County Circuit Court for an order requiring United and the city of Chicago to keep all video, cockpit recordings and other reports from the flight, along with the personnel files of the Aviation Department officers who pulled Dao from the plane. The request was filed a few hours before the Chicago Department of Aviation said it had placed two more officers on administrative leave until further notice as a result of the incident.”
“The disgusting mishandling of the situation included everyone from the rude ticket agent who demanded that this man give up his seat on the flight United overbooked, to one of the officers laughing in the midst of the incident, to the violent, abusive way the passenger was dragged off the plane by the officer. It was the worst possible model for my students, and frankly, was traumatizing to many of us who watched this from such close proximity.
What are we modeling for our children? Are we teaching our children to scream at other people, to jump quickly to force if we can’t get the results we want, to use violence to solve problems, to have total disrespect for other people?
I was appalled at how United Airlines and the officers handled the situation, but I was also encouraged by my fellow passengers’ attempts to interfere — despite how helpless we all felt. Some passengers audibly protested to the officers, some stood and removed themselves from the plane rather than continue to witness the abuse, and one father, while trying to console his 8-year-old daughter, confronted the officer saying, among other things, “you ought to be ashamed of yourself!These are the models of which I hope our children will see more.
