From FB; Elderly in Sidney AU nursing home abused too!

‘I would see him sitting in urine with no shoes on’

A Sydney nursing home found to have failed 24 counts of care standards has been allowed to continue operating.

Carino Care in the Sydney suburb of Russell Lea failed to manage residents’ medication, and has had people in its care die in pain and distress, as well as from malnourishment.

However, the new government watchdog has ruled the facility can stay open until November.

The family of former resident Luigi Cantali is outraged by the decision, saying the facility’s neglect “definitely” played a part in the 80-year-old’s death.

Speaking to Today, Cantali’s daughter Eva Rinaldi said she witnessed the mistreatment of her father when visiting him at the facility.

“I would rock up late at night, about 10pm, and I would see him sitting in urine with no shoes on, on the floor,” Rinaldi told Today. “The door would be shut and he would be wrapped up in a sheet, just shivering. That was when he caught bronchitis”

Rinaldi was made aware of her father’s mistreatment at the facility after the 80-year-old raised the alarm. Despite having dementia and being blind, Rinaldi said her late father was very aware of what was happening.

She also noticed bruising “all over [Cantali’s] body” while he was living in the facility. The alarming photographs she captured of her father’s body are documented below.

“I was very, very surprised. I knew something was wrong. Even to the point they wouldn’t shower him and they would roll him into the bathroom and then just leave him in there for an hour and change his shirt,” Rinaldi added.

“He would tell me every single thing.” Rinaldi complained to Carino Care but was told by her father that nothing had changed.

Compelled to take drastic measures, Rinaldi put a video camera in her father’s room. He later told the nurses about the camera and they went looking for the device. When it was discovered, Rinaldi claims she was banned from visiting the facility.

“I saw a big decline in my father, especially in the time when they banned me. He just went from being normal to just so sick,” she added.

Door closed and my father wheezing with bad cough, feet in urine, face blue and shivering. I called ambulance. (Eva Rinaldi)

“They [Carino Care] said that he got the best care and that was simply not the case. We were paying all this money to this organisation and they are just not following through with they are supposed to be offering.”

After being banned, Rinaldi said she contacted the aged commission for assistance. “They just basically sent me a letter then closed off the complaint and said they wouldn’t investigate any further. That was in January,” she said.

Since then, the facility has been charged with 24 counts of neglect yet has been allowed to remain open. Carino Care has also expressed they plan to retrain staff from the facility.

“It’s disgusting. It’s a big slap in the face,” Rinaldi said about the ruling.

The Minister for Aged Care and Senior Australians, Richard Colbeck, declined requests to be interviewed by Today. His office did, however, issue the below statement.

Senator the Hon Richard Colbeck, Minister for Aged Care and Senior Australians

The terrible things that have come to light are heartbreaking and completely unacceptable.

Stories like Mr Luigi Cantali’s has been front and centre my mind in taking on the responsibility of Aged Care Minister. Mr Cantali deserved better care.  I have been advised that the Department of Health issued a notice of non-compliance to Carino Care on 24 May 2019 in relation to 28 expected outcomes not met.

I am advised Carino Care is working closely with the Department of Health and Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission to remedy this non-compliance.

The service has engaged a Nurse Advisor and clinical consultant to support the service to meet the timeframe for improvement set by the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission ahead of applying for reaccreditation.

The Government is committed to driving high quality care across the sector which is demonstrated by the introduction of new resident focused quality standards, a charter of rights which came into effect on 1 July 2019, and of course that is why we called the Royal Commission.

Our whole focus is to improve the delivery of Aged Care for Senior Australians.

From Ken Ditkowsky – Yes, some judges are honest and must be commended and are an example to the others

Subject: Re: sound familiar?
Date: Sep 1, 2016 4:46 PM
Since I was forced to retire I have had a chance to try to slow my world and take a good look at it.     Yesterday on MaryGSykes blog a Texas Lawyer’s piece concerning an honest judge is revealed.    No, JoAnne has not mellowed!    Every jurisdiction has many honest judges and wonderful people who make our communities terrific places to live.     The Jerome Larkins and their ilk are an annoying minority who rise up from the cesspool from time to time to be an annoyance.     Even in an era when the polls suggest that 2/3s of us do not believe that either candidate for president is trustworthy or honest our world is still a wonderful place to live and work.      Indeed, every day I send e-mails to some of the nicest people in our world who not only care for the elderly and the disabled, but care for each other.
When we received an e-mail from a citizen that read in part:
“Last night I had many flash-backs during my sleep — of being isolated, force-drugged, spoken to and about like I was a non-person, feeling again insecure even when in my own home [is it mine, do I have legal rights to my own property, I do not, I not even my Legal Right to vote but I did receive a Jury Notice this morning] it just goes on [the veiled and not so veiled threats by those non-family predators] and on it goes, all of this — and recovering from another UTI infection, again, due to being hospital-forced to take IV antibiotics for 52 Days & Nights [while being denied ample drinking water] <http://www.drdeborahmd.com/solutions-urinary-tract-infections&gt;, <http://safepatientproject.org/posts/5609-a-cautionary-tale-dangers-of-antibiotic-overuse&gt; — along with the electronic mails that continued on and on late into the night last night and well past my normal bed-time, and this morning, still being reluctant to continue opening them all — leaves me feeling rather re-victimized at this exact point-in-time.”
Most, if not all, of the people on this e-mail chain had a first thought: “how can I help!”      In fact, the Justice Department, the FBI, and other law enforcement agencies received a few minutes later a DEMAND for an HONEST INVESTIGATION!
We as a group understand that we have a responsibility to ourselves and our families to make a concerted effort to protect America’s core values.     In spite of the perfidy, assaults on the human rights, constitutional rights and infamy of corrupt judges, corrupt lawyers, corrupt political people ***** we are carrying on the fight to end ‘elder cleansing.     We are serving the core values of America.   When we stand with the elderly and their families who are being euthanized by the corrupt nursing home operators and their political and judicial co-conspirators we fulfill our duties as citizens.      No amount of intimidation by the Political and the Judicial elite can cease our call to Honest Law enforcement for a comprehensive and vigorous Investigation into the criminal behavior of all those miscreants who are engaged in a War against the elderly and the disabled!
When each of you who have joined in the effort to protect the Constitution of the United States from those who seek to destroy its meaning and efficacy looks up they will see someone that they like!     Our goal is to, within the law, bring each elder cleanser to the Bar of Justice.       The spectacle in the Circuit Court of Cook County of a sitting judge, conspiring with an ethically challenged lawyer, infamous nursing home operator ****** to harvest the gold filing from a 90-year-old widowed grandmother haunts every decent human being.     The avarice and inhumanity exhibited taint Cook County, Illinois (Chicago) and leave a stench than cannot be sanitized.     The failure of the legal profession and the 2nd oldest profession to stand up as one and demand CRIMINAL PROSECUTIONs is beyond reprehensible.     It tars irrevocably every Judge and every lawyer in Cook County, Illinois who does not demand JUSTICE!
Indeed – we are demanding JUSTICE for all including the miscreants who would take from us our humanity.      We may not get much recognition – but, justice is its own reward.
All that said – we need right now an HONEST INVESTIGATION of the elder cleansing scandal and vigorous prosecution of all the criminals involved in ‘elder cleansing’ including those, such as Jerome Larkin, who maintain the cover-up that protects the corrupt judges, lawyers, guardians *****.     IT IS NOW TIME!
Lawyers in particular have a responsibility to stand up be counted.   Sometimes standing up and being counted has some adverse personal consequences.    I understood when I took the oath to be a lawyer that I was going to make a few enemies and some would have ethical deficiencies.  I knew I would not be alone and am grateful to the many who have stood by me – and stood up for the core values of America.   The Jerome Larkins of this world no matter how much clout they have or how many of the political and judicial elite assist him in his 18 USCA 371 conspiracy still has to face his conscience and ultimately his maker.   Every night I pray in thanksgiving that I am not him!

Lanre Amu received a three year suspension of his law license for practicing law while black.   He and Crain’s Chicago Business both independently got excited when they discovered that a Circuit Court judge was hearing cases involving a company where she was a member of the Board of Directors and her brother was the attorney.    Amu complained of the conflict of interest and Mr. Larkin of the IARDC took the extraordinary step of seeking both an interim and a 3 year suspension of Mr. Amu.   An interim suspension could occur only in the rare cases where there was a clear and present danger to the public if the attorney were allowed to continue in practice.

Obviously Mr. Amu complaining and disclosing the Judge’s perfidy raised a clear and present danger to to the corrupt judge and her 18 USCA 371 cronies.    The ‘wired judge’ obviously stood to lose here extra circular compensation and might even go to jail.    Thus, the Illinois Supreme Court suspended the law license of Mr. Amu.  The record of Mr. Amu’s proceedings indicated that by the liberal use of Clairvoyance and no witnesses (except Mr. Amu’s revelations of corruption) the various panels of the IARDC found that Mr. Larkin’s unverified and preposterous averments were untrue and that Amu should receive a suspension of another three years.  The Supreme Court of Illinois agreed.   The SCOTUS refused cert.

Illinois has a sordid history of corruption.    In Operation Greylord Corrupt Judges filled the Federal Penitentiary by the score and prosecutors worried that any claim of integrity in the Illinois court system would be perpetually undermined.    Thus, scores of corrupt judges were allowed to resign and not face criminal charges.    We had two governors in jail at the very same time, and hardly a day goes by without some scandal or other being revealed.  

Unfortunately, this sorry situation prevails today in spades.    Jerome Larkin as administrator of the Illinois Attorney Disciplinary job is working diligently to ‘cover up’ evidence of crimes by corrupt judges and lawyers and thwart free speech.   He is relentless in his efforts to deceive the public and protect corrupt judicial officials, lawyers and judges from the public.   He and a staff of patently overpaid and under educated lawyers labor mightily to silence any disclosure of the American Holocaust being conducted on the 18th floor of the Daley Center.    More that a billion dollars (estimated) has been extracted for the benefit of the 18 USCA 371 conspiracy from undeserving old folks and their families and redistributed to deserving criminals with law degrees and the like.

JoAnne Denison sought to publish on her blog the achievements of Larkin and his gang (18 USCA 242) but Larkin’s 18 USCA 242 friends convinced that Ms. Denison’s blog was akin to yelling fire in a crowded theater.    The Supreme Court of Illinois agreed and even though Ms. Denison has a light skin color she got the Lanre Amu treatment.

I mention all of this because google reports that in Florida, the Florida Bar, has unilaterally abrogated the First Amendment for lawyers and has created a haven for incompetence and fleecing the public.    Several lawyers have made this allegation.   With great diligence the Florida Bar has disbarred the whistleblowers and cuddled up with the allegedly corrupt criminals in black robes.    Mr. Larkin and Illinois have not been so obvious in their perfidy.

Thanks to the Florida Bar, Mr. Larkin and their cronies it is unsafe to grow old in America and any citizen who has seen the sun set 2700 times or more(infirm or elderly) are in season for Court appointed lawyers to railroad into guardianships so that their civil and human rights vitiated.    By executive order of Larkin any lawyer who objects forfeits his law license.   (Larkin uses the verbiage – “further order of court” to make certain that the objecting lawyer cannot disclose the truth about Larkin and expect to practice law again.

The media carefully reports the inhumanity to man of the radical Muslim ISIS terrorist, but it is strangely silent as to the inhumanity to man of the radical non-Muslim ISIS terrorists.   Even the harvesting of gold from the teeth of an elderly victim is kept silent!
ISIS and their friends killed a few hundred in Paris the other day.    Here in the United States our non Muslim ISIS terrorists kill one at time several hundred seniors and disabled people and only rarely does a media mention it.   Law enforcement appears to be disinterested and the Government could care less.    Thus, Jerome Larkin is not in jail and one after another when the elderly are stripped clean of their property and liberty the aforesaid elderly meet their maker filled with drugs.
The non-Mulim ISIS terrorist is safe – for the time being.

Fairness requires that I give the IARDC a chance to cleanse itself!    

The Denison case ranks very high in the list of infamous legal decisions.   In my view it is number 1.   The Dreyfus decision, Dred Scott, and Denison are all equally infamous, however, Denison is a modern day assault on America’s core values that is directly abrogating the written opinion of the Supreme Court of Illinois in Alvarez and the current and recent decisions.
The IARDC can salvage some dignity by recalling its wrongful assault on America with public apologies and the immediate termination of the employment of the attorneys involved in the cases in which this assault occurred.   This outrage has to be followed by the commission starting disciplinary proceedings against the rubber stamp lawyers who sat on panels which knowingly and notoriously rubber stamped the 18 USCA 242 actions of Mr. Larkin .
  It is very clear that if high school freshman have to know the Constitution it is not too much to ask that lawyers who charge the public hundreds of dollars an hour ought to be familiar the Rule of Law and core values of America as well.   

Let the record be clear – it is intended that a non-answer to this e-mail should be deemed an admission that the acts referred to in the ABA article attached to prior e-mails as exhibit 1 were intentional and deliberate.
Ken Ditkowsky
Please publish the following and get as wide distribution of this Call of Arms as possible.  The article in the ABA journal (exhibit 1) is so repugnant that if we wish to retain our democracy we have to start a ground swell of protest.   Benign neglect is not an option when the core value of America is being threatened by the legal profession and a bunch of corrupt jurists:
Days of Shame
For years the learned profession of the law has come to enjoy ridicule and slander.    What do you call it when a bus load of lawyers crashes off a bridge into the Mississippi River and all are killed?    The answer:  “a good start!”        Metaphors for lawyers are not flattering and you can expect at every gathering someone is going to make a remark that suggests lawyers are dishonest, amoral, and the cause of everything bad in society.      As a lawyer it is always amusing to have one of the most vociferous and obnoxious of the lawyer baiters a day or so later come into my office asking for my help in resolving some legal problem that requires not only discretion but knowledge of facts that my client would blush if he had to disclose to his wife.
That was before I stumbled into the ‘elder cleansing’ scandal and the War on the Elderly and the Disabled.     Prior to that time the lawyers that I dealt with by in large were honest, decent, well read and nice people.     Most lawyers were people who I could take at their word and trust with my deepest confidence.     The relationships were mutual.     The parasites that I ran into in the Mary Sykes case 09 P 4585 were a breed apart.      The worst ‘scum’ were a step up from these lawyers and had much more integrity.      A casual brush with one or more of them in a hallway in the Daley Center made my skin crawl and activated a need for a bath in lye soap.    
I had heard of such lawyers but except for Ms. ***** I had never had contact with any.      Exactly how I was so sheltered is a mystery, but most members of the profession (including the most irritating) were people I was not ashamed of.     That is, until yesterday, when the ABA published the article on JoAnne Denison’s suspension, and did not express outrage and a demand for the immediately impeachment of the offending jurists and all who acted in concert to assault the First Amendment.    The article is attached hereto and made part hereof as exhibit 1.
The Legal profession has on occasion not covered itself with glory.     The case of the Dred Scott decision the Supreme Court failed to meet its responsibility and stand up for core principals of America – Liberty and Justice.   Again in Buck vs Bell the Court failed to recognize the concept of Equal before the Law.    (This case was the legal justification for the Holocaust.)  In the JoAnn Denison case the America Bar Association and the organized Bar looked the other way as corrupt Illinois jurists rubber=stamped a ‘cover up’ orchestrated by outrageously corrupt lawyer disciplinarians who were openly and notoriously protecting criminals with law licenses who were ravaging the hard earned savings of the elderly and disabled.     In the Denison case the ‘booty’ being protected included but was not limited to a million dollars in gold coins (Sykes) and eighty pounds of silver coins (Gore).     Her blog also referred to large land thefts and the eight million dollar Tyler estate all of which were being covered up.     Most seriously, she was threatening the ‘grab’ of Mary Sykes’ million dollar home (including land) and disclosing the details of the tax evasion scheme that was essential to elder cleansing of Mary Sykes.  
The Bar Association with all this information at hand, reported the assault on First Amendment and the Bill of Rights by high ranking judicial criminals as if Denison had been admonished for eating one chocolate cookie too many.     There was no outrage, no call for an investigation (Honest or otherwise), and certainly not even a protest.    What there was however the editing and cutoff of outrage that citizens expressed when they heard that the Judiciary had abdicated its responsibility and was protecting overt criminal activity?
It is no wonder that the public feels that a bus populated with lawyers falling off a bridge and killing all on board is a “good start!”     Indeed, in all candor, lawyers take an oath to defend the Constitution.    The Denison decision demonstrates that even though we require our ‘pre=teens’ to have knowledge of the Constitution prior to entering high school, we apparently do not require our lawyers to have knowledge of the document when charging $500 a hour to honest citizens for legal services.
The lawyers involved in the Denison case (including the Supreme Court justices) have demonstrated ‘contempt for the Rule of Law’ and those who attorn to such action are in breach of their oath.    Such individuals are a cancer and enemies of our democracy.       There is no excuse for any lawyer being a party to an assault on the basic and core values of American democracy and in particular the Bill of Rights.     The racism that the Illinois Disciplinary Commission (IARDC) and its administrator orchestrated in the Amu case (and against Diane Nash) is not an anomaly – it is a commonplace staple.    In most situations it is an undercurrent, but Jerome Larkin and his 18 USCA 242 co-conspirators are not ashamed of their conduct – they published in the Lanre Amu case that attorneys with a dark skin who complain concerning corruption are not welcome in Illinois to practice law.
While the Illinois Supreme Court has ruled that it is unethical (sans Rule 8.3 and 18 USCA 4) for lawyers to voice a call for an HONEST investigation once again I, and a large group of lawyers who are afraid to voice opposition to the criminal element of our profession, call for an HONEST investigation, and if wrongdoing is found for the most vigorous prosecution of the miscreants.     This is our call for a War Crimes trial of Jerome Larkin and his 18 USCA 371, 18 USCA 242 co-conspirators.    Justice Jackson is deceased.   But I am certain we can find another advocate for the concept of decency, honor, and integrity by public officials.

LEGAL ETHICS
Lawyer gets suspension for blog posts about ‘feeding frenzy’ of connected lawyers
POSTED SEP 24, 2015 12:46 PM CDT



An Illinois lawyer who blogged about a probate case has been suspended because of her posts alleging a “feeding frenzy” of court-connected lawyers in Chicago’s “sleazy world of probate.”
The lawyer, JoAnne Marie Denison, was suspended for three years, and until further order of the Illinois Supreme Court, the  Legal Profession Blog reports. The Sept. 21 suspension follows a May decision in which a review board of the Illinois Registration and Disciplinary Commission rejected Denison’s First Amendment arguments [1].
Denison had contended her blog posts were true, but the review board cited findings that she had failed to present an objective factual basis to support her allegations [2]. Denison’s posts had impugned the integrity of judges and lawyers involved in a particular probate proceeding, the review board said. [3]
Denison’s blog had alleged a guardian was appointed for an elderly woman though she did not need one, and that the guardian had stolen from the woman and did not take proper care of her [4]. The blog posts referenced a “feeding frenzy” of lawyers, a “classic case of corruption” and a court “being spoonfed BS law by atty miscreants.”
Circuit courts in Cook County aren’t computerized, Denison alleged in her posts, because “politically connected judges and their puppet attorneys … would be exposed for what they are: money grubbing, family strife churning leeches that create nothing but pain and misery in a family while swiping free parking money out of a well funded estate.”    [5]  


[1] It should be noted that the Review Panel in its decision misrepresent the holding of United States vs. Alvarez 132 SC 2537.    They adopted an argument specifically rejected by the SCOTUS.      Journalism integrity would have required the author of the Article to note such a grossly Ethical lapse by the conscience of the Illinois Legal authority.    It is normally grossly unethical for a lawyer to misrepresent the law – but when the Lawyer Disciplinary Commission does so it all eyes turn toward Mecca.  
[2] The burden of proof is on the commission – this statement is an admission that the Commission did not follow it own rules as the proof.    A  kangaroo court is not usually part of the American credo.    The statement that follows the admission contradicts the first statement as a matter of law.
[3] This statement is interesting as this is exactly what the First Amendment and Article One of the Illinois Constitution were enacted to protect.    A lawyer professional group should have had kittens when they read this statement!    An ISIS attack on America would be no less and no more unacceptable.
[4] Rule 8.3 and 18 USCA 4 mandate such reports, 47 USCA 230 protects such posts, and 320 ILCS 20/4 bars disciplinary action.  735 ILCS 1 et seq reinforces the right to make such statements and take such a position.
[5] Interestingly this is the very same charges that the United States of America made (sans the computerization) in the Greylord cases in which several score of jurists and lawyers went to jail.     It is fortunate that the United States Attorney was not subject to the disciplinary process of Jerome Larkin and the IARDC.   The AG would have been disbarred and the more than a score of corrupt jurists would still be preying on the public.
 
I agree, in the US it is the height of tyranny and treason to attack a blog that is critical of the government.  Judges and the government have no special privilege.  Our country was founded on those rights and now Jerome Larkin assaults them.
I see no difference between this and Judge Flannell in Moultrie County jailing Pastor Roger Harrison because he and his brothers would not withdraw counterclaims against banks where he holds an interest in the banks and is a shareholder, PLUS he was of counsel to one bank for years.  It was bad enough they jailed Lyle Harrison for 7 months and Andrew Harrison for 2 months for failing to withdraw counterclaims against US Bank and Hardware State Bank, but to jail a well known and well loved pastor from the Milwaukee area with over 1,000 church members was even too much for the jailers to tolerate, and he was eventually released.  Both Lyle and Andrew have degrees in theology.  Lyle is also a graduate from Kettering (the old GMI) or one of the top 10 engineering schools in the county.  He holds a bachelor’s in engineering and an MBA, and yet he rotted in jail for 7 months because he could not find an attorney because Flannell would threaten them and act insulting toward them, and then Flannell would “provide” attorneys–yeah, right attorneys that would fail to serve discovery and let the case go into default.
I am currently working on a book for the Harrisons to pass out.  Don’t worry, I’ll be sure to spell the names of Judge Broch and Flannell correctly.
You see, the suspension of my law license is a blessing in disguise.   Now I don’t have to waste my time running to court and I can write all sorts of books now on all the dirty, filthy tricks of corruption by attorneys and judges acting badly.
I will assume that’s what Larkin and Opryszek want–I will write books and publish on how the ARDC rountinely ignores valid citizen complaints and that is the backbone of Illinois, and in particular, Cook County being always in the top 5 most corrupt states according to all surveys of corruption.
The amazing thing is, we have the most suits filed and won in corruption.  This is despite the fact that L. Madigan, Alvarez and Saltoun all have publicly stated and have sent me letters they “don’t do” corruption.
Well, if the states attorneys “don’t do” corruption, then who does? The feds are not supposed to intervene unless and until all state remedies are exhausted.  People get tired of begging for a clean up and it takes years to exhaust state remedies.  By then, witnesses are dead or lost.
It’s a great system we have here in Chicago.
We prosecute attorneys AND pastors for just telling the truth.
JoAnne

If I understand what you are saying, you feel that my suggesting Honesty, Honor and fidelity as a solution to the problem of guardianship for the indolent, obnoxious, incompetent and uncontrollable elder or disabled person who now needs social services is naive.    Indeed, in a vacuum it does seem to be Pollyannaish.   But, it is not.    It is not because we do have good people out there and the Jerome Larkin et al conspirators are a minority – but growing.
This is the reason we need the media, the legal profession, and citizens in general to defy the conspirators (including but not limited to Larkin, and his group) and clean up the mess now before it become metastatic.   Larkin and his 18 USCA 371 co-conspirators have unilaterally revoked the Constitution of both the US and the State of Illinois for not only lawyers, but all members of the class of people who are called elderly or disabled.
Last night after I talked with Bev Cooper on her program it occurred to me that Larkin and his co-conspirators have made a massive intrusion on our liberty that is even greater than we observed.   They have set up an alternate justice system so as to better assault the Bill of Rights.    Let me explain.   The members of the legal profession are the last rallying point for defense of the constitution.   Right now as an example fair minded people have looked at Hillary Clinton’s foray in the cyber world of e-mails and are thinking – if that had been me, the jail house is in my future; however, lawyers are out there making certain that she is not persecuted because she is Hillary Clinton, or that she does not get a pass because she is Hillary Clinton.    (Ditto for Chancellor Wise of the University of Illinois).
Defending the constitutional rights of citizens is the sacred duty of every single member of the legal profession.   The obligation is a birth right and one of the obligations that if you shirk you lose your self respect.   (This is the reason that I lobby daily for a HONEST investigation of the Mary Sykes and similar elder cleansing cases  – my personal self respect requires it).
Larkin first based his rationalization that he had a right to censor the call for an Honest investigation on the Sawyer case.    Had he and his co-conspirators read the case they would have found that the last paragraph negated their argument.   After I quoted the last paragraph as an argument against Larkin’s position he in his usually intellectual dishonest way dropped citing the case.   Prevarication and subterfuge were substituted for honest legal argument.
The most recent example was found in the JoAnne Denison documents wherein the IARDC tortured the Alvarez case and distorted its reasoning to suggest that an argument that the Supreme Court of the United States rejected was the basis of the decision.  (Alvarez held that even false statements are protected by the First Amendment –  Alvarez claimed to be a medal of honor winner – he was not)
The disciplinary proceedings against both JoAnne and myself were based upon our calling the Justice Department for an HONEST investigation.   (see Cynthia Farenga letter – Ms Farenga read the Probate Sharks blog and found a call for an Honest investigation of the elder cleansing cases.   She notified Ms Black – a stooge of Mr. Larkin – and shortly afterwards disciplinary proceedings followed against first me and then JoAnne)
Why are the miscreants so upset by an Honest investigation.   An honest investigation would cause the prosecution of the dishonest judges involved as well as the dishonest guardians, guardians ad litem, and other judicial officials.    An Honest investigation would lead back to political figures (including nursing home operators) who are reaping in billions of dollars in loot!     An Honest investigation would result in capital gains on property stolen from wards becoming ordinary income, and worse yet an Honest investigation would end the very lucrative War on the Elderly and disabled.    The the Conspirators assaulted the First Amendment.
If you recall my hearing.  The IARDC attorney held a copy of my letter to the Attorney General of the United States in his hand and asked me if I was repentant for writing it!
The legislature and the Congress worked long and hard to address the plight of the elderly and the disabled.  Previously the Courts developed the doctrine of parens patrie.  All of the above was designed to address the problem of even the most incorrigible senior et al.    In fact they worked.    Or at least they worked into our miscreant conspirators discovered the amount of money that was available by elder cleansing.
My solution is not to throw the baby out with the bath water, but to get rid of the scum of the legal profession starting with the administrator of the IARDC.   I suggest that we send a message – TAX THE BASTARDS!   let them pay all the interest, penalties and taxes due.
Our state needs the money – the money Larkin himself owes would make a great contribution to the pension crisis and send a message.   There is going to be claimed an $800,000 capital gain on Mary’s house.    That should be a One million dollar ordinary income report!    The other 2 million dollars stolen is also subject to income tax.    
Why is Larkin and his miscreant co-conspirators being given a pass?
The short answer is found in the word “corruption”   If we just enforce our laws there is a place of accommodation for the elderly and the disabled. 

What to know BEFORE you step into Probate court–Rules for attys and non attys alike

Dear Readers;

After all that has happened, after all of my 350+ posts warning everyone–esp. miscreant lawyers to DO THE RIGHT THING IN PROBATE and don’t act without jurisdiction, do not isolate the senior, do not allow a guardian to continue on who isolates the senior, listen to and invite family reports on the behavior of the guardian, I am still getting reports of cases where 1) seniors are thrown against their will into nursing homes and being (illegally) drugged; 2) the court is telling “interested parties” to shut up in court–even attorneys–who are trying to report that the proposed temporary guardian is an abuser and is specifically excluded from prior written directive of the ward to ever act as guardian; 3) closed court proceedings without rhyme or reason on the transcript and all sorts of other shennagins.

Rule No. 1.  Most important. Before you step into Probate Court know the Probate Act regarding disabled adults.  Read it thoroughly.  Know who and “interested party” is, who needs to be served.  Find all the adult siblings, children and parents, or if none, then next of kin.  Know who holds the POA for a senior.  If there is no POA, the relatives should get together and elect the most honest, trustworthy caring person as guardian who will carry out any advance directives.

Rule No. 2 Bring your own court reporter.  There are dozens of fully electronic, licensed court reporters who are unbiased, unbribable and will deliver you a transcript by the end of the week in any e-format you desire, fully searchable for about the same cost as the court’s “official reporter”.   Be forewarned the “official reporters” from the Daley Center often lose, alter, stop reporting, etc. transcripts.  I have dozens of stories of this, one for me for sure, so don’t go there.  Hire an outside court reporter.  If nothing else, it puts a chill on nonsense in the courtroom, even if she never records a single word–you need to know that just by her being there she has done a great job to get you a fair and just agreed order that day and her sitting fee of $125 can save you millions of an entire estate in the end.  Don’t skimp on this step.

Rule No. 3.  Be prepared to argue the constitution and against closed proceedings and doctor’s reports.  Be aware that Dr. Rabin and Dr. Amdur and other “recommended docs from the court list”  declare everyone incompetent.  Get your own work up write up whatever.  Don’t let the senior be drugged with strong psychotropic drugs.  It’s illegal and none are approved by the FDA for those over age 60 (or teenagers).  Threaten to report the doc if you must, but there is a legal procedure for giving a person psychotropic drugs that must be strictly followed (In Re Tiffany). Be sure to read this case and follow the mandate re psychotropic drugs if you are GAL or PG and doing this.

Rule No. 4 Expect anything in Probate, from closed proceedings, to having a case with a large estate being called last after everyone is gone so the judge can arrange a slew of “friends” to ensure the senior is declared disabled, that a $500 to $600 per hour atty is involved, that you, even as an “interested party” will not be allowed to speak about something important including abuse, isolation and drugging,  etc.

Rule No. 5 If a guardian has been appointed, make sure there is a summons, petition, affidavit of service and Sodini notices to the adult siblings, children and parents of the disabled 14 days in advance of the hearing, notifying the interested parties of the time, date and place of hearing.

Rule 5.  If you weren’t allowed to speak in court, file a “Bystander’s Report” together with a “Report to the Court and GAL” detailing your knowledge of who is an abuser and who should not become guardian.  Detail what you know about the Ward’s written advance directives and demand the court follow that, as provided for by the Probate Act.  Do not let abusers become guardians.

All of this is based upon my story from yesterday.  After 350+ posts on this blog, which I know the GAL’s read, the judges read, etc.  IT IS STILL HAPPENING

From an atty yesterday, one of my favorite court rooms: 1) closed proceedings without notice or reason; 2) the POA holder’s atty was told to “shut up” and not speak; 3) the case involved a lot of money (est. $10 million in property plus a mansion).  4) the ward was put in a nursing home by an out of state son for having a messy, cluttered home (anyone hear of a cleaning lady); 5) the ward is being drugged and is acting like a zombie; 5) she has been put in a nursing home against her will (this is a continuing theme in these cases); 6) she has stated in writing her abusive son is not to be made guardian, but the court did just that yesterday; 7) the court tied in doc said she is “incompetent” after a 5 minute conversation where at the start he told her 5 important words, and then at the end of the conversation she could not recall all of them, so she is incompetent; 8) proceedings were closed where the judge would only talk to the “tied in” attys and GAL and abusive son.

Don’t be shocked in Probate.  Never be shocked.  Be prepared to argue, present and preserve what happens.  Bring a court reporter.  Demand everything be on the record.  No closed proceedings, no closed doors.  If the GAL’s come from the “judge’s area” which was prohibited by court order after Greylord–report them to the ARDC.

Corruption in probate has to stop, and this starts with concerns by everyone.  Let the court know via a Bystander’s Report and Report to the Court and GAL.  Let the ARDC and JIB (Judicial Inquiry Board) know via a written complaint.  If there is a theft, conversion, embezzlement–put it in your Report to the Court AND report it to the authorities–the local police, the State’s atty, the FBI and don’t stop complaining until there is a thorough, complete and honest investigation.

If the court won’t let you speak, contact me and I’ll publish what you have to say on this blog.  The disabled have rights also, and the public needs to know and be forewarned.  If you don’t get justice in court, I will give you a forum to demand justice via this blog.

Some have asked me when the blog will stop.  I always respond, when the corruption has ended and I get no further reports of it.

So far, no such luck.

Another Letter ignoring the US Constitution from the ARDC and our response

Dear Readers;

While I think you all know that in the US we have the right to association, the right to have people draft up letters and emails for us, and the right to associate with them, the control freak attitude of the ARDC does not acknowledge those rights.

For those of you that forgot your US history, it was commonplace in the colonies for the British to sue people, throw them in prison, take away rights and liberties–all without due process of law.  They would also impose gag orders and orders against associating with rebels who would organize citizen protests.

All of that was simply disposed of with the drafting and implementation of the US Constitution in 1790 and more recently enforced by the Illinois Consitution.

Apparently the ARDC has not read these plainly worded doucments.  See the incredulous letter I recently received and my/our response to it.  Yes, I still talk with, email and associate with KDD even though the ARDC wrongfully disqualified him as my counsel.  I can do this because the US Constitution says that I can.

Note how our Constitutional rights, when understood protect our basic human and civil rights.  These are not mere writings on an ancient piece of paper but they serve us well even today — and even against such august and venerable attorneys that spend their work hours at the ARDC.

Once again, KDD and I are calling for honest, ethical and complete investigations of the Sykes, Gore, Tyler, Bedin, Wyman, Spera cases and that charges by the ARDC brought against us only to protect the honeypot of Probate be dropped.

Re:    Complaints against KDD and myself, and the Sykes, Gore, Tyler and Wyman Complaints

Dear Attys Larkin, Opryczek and Haspel;

This is in response to your recent letter I received in the snail mail late yesterday.

Let me set the record straight for you.    As a citizen I have the right to the attorney of my choice.    Because of your ethically challenged and the improper actions initiated by you, Ken and I have been wrongfully forced to petition the Supreme Court of Illinois for a supervisory order.     Mr. Ditkowsky is my attorney and my friend and confidant in relation to the matter before the Supreme Court of Illinois.  If I want to call him, email him, visit with him, have lunch with him–that is my right and his right also.  It’s in the US constitution, if you have not read it recently, it was a fine document carefully drafted to alleviate the long sufferings of people under the highly oppressive monarchy of England.  These drafters knew their oppressors and how they rip apart society causing great harm and suffering to a land of people without rights.  We no longer have court in the US that are secret courts, secret off with your head courts, gag orders preventing us from disclosing certain topics, restraining orders preventing our association with other honest citizens to fight an oppressive government in a civilized orderly manner.  Because if we do not have those rights, society otherwise deteriorates into civil war and lawlessness.

Telling me that I adopt KDD’s writings, that I include him in correspondence and my cc’s and insisting that I not associate with him smacks of over reaching and restraints not imposed by our venerable US and Illinois constitutions.  It’s bullying, pure and simple.

Even if KDD is disqualified, all that means is that he cannot appear in court and speak for me (he can be my friend in the galley and watch), he can in fact write for me, but I have to sign the pleading when filed and review it.  He cannot speak to you on my behalf.  But if I adopt and approve of his writings, I can then send them to you.  The reality of the situation is, he does more to help the ARDC understand and appreciate the law than any of you and the other ARDC attorneys combined.

This morning Mr. Ditkowsky drafted and sent to the ARDC a Himmel complaint in which you all are the attorneys who are referred to for discipline.    The reason that you all are involved is the fact that pursuant to Rule 137 prior to bringing the disciplinary action against me the attorney for the ARDC was  required to do some kind of investigation.    It is has been called to your attention that the Probate Division had no jurisdiction in the Sykes and therefore the assertions made against me were totally meritless.    The statement that I made any untrue averment was totally false and a direct violation of Rule 137 and a demonstration of your ethically challenged behavior.     Indeed, if you had done a scintilla of due diligence you would have discovered that 1) you are intentionally violating not only my First Amendment Rights, but 2) my fifth, sixth and 14th Amendment Rights as well.  The Federal Constitution plainly and directly prohibits the action that you are prosecuting.

All that aside, even if the ARDC has jurisdiction the averments made against me are not sustainable and without merit and you either know or should know that fact.   Ergo, this morning Mr. Ditkowsky filed a Himmel complaint against you all and forwarded to the Administrator a disk that reproduced by scanning  the first four volumes of the Sykes common law record.     The record clearly demonstrates that the Supreme Court and Legislative jurisdictional  mandate are being continuously ignored by you.      I respect you, and therefore I am sending you the FRCP 11 ‘safe harbor’ letter demanding that you immediately dismiss the meritless proceedings filed against me.     (Mr. Ditkowsky is not so generous – he is requesting that the United States of America investigate and prosecute those persons who have violated my civil rights, Mary Sykes’ civil rights, Gloria Sykes’ civil rights and the Civil Rights of all persons similarly situated–including Josephine DePietro and Yolanda and Kathie Bakken who are continuously and vigorously being isolated from a family member they held dear and visited frequently and called on a near daily basis).

Please be advised that the fact that you are an attorney employed by the State of Illinois as part of the ARDC staff does not insulate you from your responsibilities as a lawyer and as an officer of the court.   The pending petition is not privileged as you and the Administrator are both aware that there was no delegation under American law to you or the ARDC to regulate my First Amendment Rights.    Indeed in the New York Times vs. Sullivan case the specific prohibition is clearly stated.     In the recent Alvarez and Brown cases the prohibition is reiterated and in Hunter  the Virginia Supreme Court explains very clearly that ‘content’ based speech is protected.     Let me make it very clear – this is not a ‘game’ and the stakes are very high.    Mary Sykes has had her Constitutional Rights, civil rights, property rights and human rights taken from her by the Attorneys who have promulgated these complaints against me that the ARDC is pursing.   The attempt to silence me is certainly not authorized by any delegation to the ARDC and clearly a violation of 42 USCA § 1983.    I call upon you as an alleged ethical and honest  attorney to comply with your oath taken when you were sworn in as an attorney and your responsibilities inherent to your role as an attorney and DO THE RIGHT THING.  Dismiss the ARDC actions against KDD and myself and conduct a complete, thorough and honest investigation of all miscreants involved in jurisdictionless proceedings in Probate–Sykes, Wyman, Taylor, Gore.  Conduct a thorough investigation as to why Atty Sharon Rudy swiped $150,000 from join accounts held in the names of both Dominick Spera and his mother, leaving Dominic on the streets for over a year–sleeping in the park and on the streets of Rockford, eating out of trash cans, all the while SRR swiped $150,000 with impunity and unnoticed out of joint accounts by the GAL Peter Savitsky or Judge Fabiano.  How does this happen in the US?  A relatively well off gentleman is rendered homeless and penniless by the Rockford Probate Court system.  I just pointed this out to Atty SRR and got him $5,000 “until next month” when she has all the facts and records. Disgusting.

You challenge myself and KDD with lying, yet all I have found in the Probate system when people complain via my blog is just what is stated, uninvestigated garden variety theft, embezzlement, conversion, (elder financial exploitation) isolation (elder abuse), lack of jurisdiction–all attorneys acting badly and judges acting badly and corruption.  A clear deviation from the laws, cases, thoughts and opinions that is in any sense of the concept of justice.

The Probate system is so utterly devoid of justice in some cases, I have people “secretly” calling me with verified inventories in the hundred of thousands, homes sold, forced nursing home placements, they escape and live in boarding and rooming houses, hiding from the Probate court.  They call me and engage in complicated, lucid thoughts clearly establishing competency.  They talk of stories of court sanctioned murder plots.  Of course, I would never believe them EXCEPT FOR THE FACT, I have found instances of court sanctioned murder.  Forced nursing home placements, slapping DNR’s and holding people down to inject them with strong psychotropic drugs so they start and dehydrate, plus the sales of expensive homes–all to go to probate atty and tied in servicing fees.

You might think you can shut these people up and their relatives, but you cannot.  There is the internet and they post not just on my blog but a myriad of other long established blogs.  I bring no disrepute to the legal profession with my blog because all of the miscreants I have mentioned have been long and well established as “miscreants” on other probate blog sites. The difference is, I can help explain court procedures and methods to people who really need this advice and cannot afford it.

I hope you will consider all of this seriously and get some relief for these probate victims.

Quit you job and work for me.  You will not have money or insurance, but you will have ethics and a great sense of self esteem.  Saving the world is the highest calling anyone can undertake.

Working at the ARDC and being told to prosecute and persecute honest attorneys is no way to live.  It only ends in abject misery.

Sincerely

JoAnne Denison
