From Activist Post–More brilliant work on the troubles afoot.

Another brave and brilliant reporter jumps into the waters again, asking more and more questions about what is actually going on here?  If you love asking the IARDC questions, you will love this article.

This is an amazing article and I want to give a huge vote of thanks to the reporter that has spent many hours working on this.


From KDD – more witness tampering and obstruction of justice by the IARDC

Subject: Re: Why don’t they prosecute attorneys denying human and civil rights to seniors?

Every judicial scandal has certain elements.   Certain lawyers appear to be ‘bag men’ and other influence brokers.    Greylord exposed the pattern in vivid detail.   Certain fixers always stand out.   There is a book that came out in the late 1990’s that I believe was called the “Jewish Mafia” that exposed the Arvey, Hodes, group.  This group subsequently moved to California and became associated with the movie industry.
Similar pattern is appearing in the ‘elder cleansing scandal except the problem seems to be franchised.   To date I have not found a Mr. Big or Mrs. Big.    What I’ve discovered is franchises that are doled out to individuals.    For instance, the F estate in Florida fits the pattern.   The attorney franchise in the Sykes case fits the pattern.  ([entity’s] attempt to grab Gloria Sykes’ insurance money is a clue).    The [entity] in Gore also fits the pattern, especially with Alice Gore being placed in an Esformes nursing home.   The mining of Gore’s teeth for the Au is an example of the greed!
I do not believe that [entity] is a big player in Illinois.   His name comes up frequently so his involvement is set in stone.   The [entities] who frequently are used to sign the certificates of incompetency are  rote players.    Similarly, the [agency] [entities] who act in concert with the miscreants do not appear to be major actors.
In my case the incidents with Dr. Patel and the testimony of Dr. Patel illustrate the ‘catch as catch can’ approach of the attorneys who aid and abet the miscreants.    As you are aware that prior to filing a lawsuit the Courts require that the attorney have sufficient information to certify that the complaint is not frivolous.   Thus, to find out the facts I wrote a FRCP 11 letter to Dr. Patel.
Seizing on the ‘any port in a storm’ approach [entity] and his co conspirators attempted to create a ‘catch 22’.     They and their aiders and abetters took the position that doing a FRCP investigation of any case in which the elder cleansers had targeted was unethical.    In a captive environment apparently such has some appeal.
The [agency][entity] apparently was directed to create the illusion that the FRCP 11 letter was intimidating as it asked the question of how the same patient could be to one doctor able to speak and understand everything and to [entity] she was a stone.     What the miscreants did not want to be revealed was the fact that dozens if not hundreds of victims were railroaded in guardianships in the same manner and there was a franchise set up to obtain medical opinions that suited the miscreants.   Gloria in her pro-se examination of a [entity] had him admit that he was giving his professional opinion without ever meeting Mary Sykes!
 Dr. Patel had no stake in the effort to shut me up and therefore he was disinterested.   Pressing on in their efforts to silence me, the [agency-entity] made secret contact with Patel and told him what she wanted him to say and even sent him documents.   (In discovery she did not disclose her prior contact or her communication with Patel; however, during her aborted attempt to create the facade that in an effort to obtain justice Dr. Patel was to testify by telephone, she inadvertently disclosed the contact).
Patel was brought into the hearing and he was never asked if he was intimidated.   Larry brought out the fact that Patel received the communication and did not respond to it, but merely placed it in the file.   The attempted subordination of perjury failed!    (I assume that when an Honest complete and comprehensive investigation is completed this fiasco will come back to haunt the young attorney how was assigned this task.)
Greylord was a great teacher.   It taught the miscreant leader to stay under cover.    The Rothner deposition in the Northshore case gives a clue to the MO.   The MO of Enron is refined and cleverly executed.    Little by little the government is unwinding the web but these are very clever and smart people.   Their fingers are in everything and their time table very well thought out.
In short the ‘elder cleansing’ portion of this scandal is just one of the cancers that has infected our society.    It is part of a much larger scandal but it is very real and very difficult for the families who fall victim to the avarice of the miscreants.    Your research into the [agency] reveals that the tentacles reach into that organization and instead of doing their job to protect the public, they waste public money in protecting the foot soldiers who do the dirty work for the ‘elder cleansers!’    [I’ll have Larry segregate the Patel testimony on Monday and send you both sessions – it is very revealing.]
Once again – thank you for taking the time to do an expose of ‘elder cleansing’ in Illinois and exposing the underbelly of the IARDC.    I’ve copied law enforcement as to this e-mail as what we have is a National Problem and it is the duty of every citizen to assist and co-operate with every HONEST complete and comprehensive investigation of ‘elder cleansing’ and to keep calling for HONEST complete and comprehensive investigations until our disabled and senior citizens can go into our courts and not fear to be victimized by the ‘judicial officials!’

Subject: Blog

The First Amendment is a core value of American culture, and the Amendment is the first to be attacked by those who wish to take our freedom from us.   In the past half century there have been numerous attacks by our political leaders on the First Amendment.  Recently the left leaning political types attempted to use the IRS to silence the ‘tea party.’  The clout heavy criminals who promulgate the enterprise and cottage industry of ‘elder cleansing’ are using the lawyer disciplinary boards to silence lawyers who stand in their way of abusing and exploiting seniors.
Few individuals want to stand up to the entrenched political types.   Even fewer are willing to put their own reputations and well being on the line and be counted.   It is easy to stand on the sidelines and throw rocks and be part of the ‘mob’ but it not easy to stand up and go face to face with those in authority who are assaulting our core values.   The political types are much more attractive than you and I.  Hate, avarice, and a ‘fast buck’ are much easier to sell than hard work, diligence, and doing the right thing without even the remote possibility of reward.
With your blog you have done exactly that, and provided the families of the victims of elder cleansing with a forum for exercise of their First Amendment Rights.   Read [entity 1]  letter to [agency] by [entity]  that is attached to the letter that I wrote yesterday.   She is terrified that the Probate Sharks blog will stir an Honest investigation of her part in elder cleansing.   Similarly [numerous entities] and others have expended great energy in getting [entity] and the [agency] to attempt to silence attorneys who contribute to the NASGA including you and me.
When brute force fails to silence and destroy First Amendment Rights then one by one each opponent is approached by advocates of the assault on the First Amendment and we are confronted by people who suggest to us that our own best interests are served by just a concession.   Some of the people who appear as advocates are sincere and some are acting in concert with the miscreants.
Self interest is a powerful force, and it is a legitimate force.   Being foolish, being stubborn, or committing professional Suicide is not a respected method of solving a problem.   It is always better to in a proper situation to retreat and come back to fight another day than to get destroyed.
Last night I watched you address this scenario and was impressed by the solution that you reached.   The decision took great courage.   More importantly the decision set an example for your family and friends.   I say this not because I took the same tack, but because I know what it is to stand up for principle and have to take the consequences of the decision.
I applaud your decision to stand four square for your Rights as a Citizen of the United States of America and the rights that we all share that are America’s core values.

From KDD–he asks, where do the complaints [to authorities] go besides the desk to circular file effluent.

Subject: Liability for violation of 42 USCA 1983, Tax Fraud, et al
Date: Oct 22, 2013 9:19 PM
Civil Rights and particular the First Amendment are core values of America.   People who attempt to deprive others of First Amendment Rights walk a very thin cord.   Public bodies (including the [authorities]) are not exempt of protected from the onus of violation of the First Amendment Rights of citizens.   Indeed, officials including attorneys must respect the core rights of citizens or suffer some very severe consequences.

Just like the policeman who beats a suspect, the bureaucrat who misuses his position to ‘cover up’ elder cleansing, racial cleansing, ethnic cleansing etc has to account both in the civil sector and the criminal sector.   There is absolutely no excuse for a lawyer to not know the Rule of Law as decreed by the Supreme Court of the United States.

Many citizens have inquired as to how come the [authorities] have not prosecuted the miscreant lawyers such as those who have surfaced in [certain probate] cases.   certainly there have been many complaints filed against them.   Everyone knows that Gloria Sykes, the Coopers, Schwartz etc have filed detailed complaints.   Pursuant to Himmel I have personally written the [authorities] as I believe that when Mary Sykes’ safety deposit box was ‘looted’ it was unconscionable that the two [entities] refused to report this situation to the Court.    The fact that the person who removed the gold coins did not deny (and has not denied) the theft was significant.   Only the [entities]  and [authorities] were active in denying a fact that everyone knew was a fact.

Thus, how come JoAnne Denison and yours truly are in the ‘dock’ for demanding an Honest complete and comprehensive investigation.   Yes, I came to the same conclusion as you.   It is my opinion that the attempt to ‘shut up’ both Ms. Dension and me is a violation of 42 USCA 1983, the public policy of the State of Illinois and is without jurisdiction and therefore a clearly ultra vires act.   Pursuant to Himmel this has been reported by me to the [authorities] which did nothing.   Saying they did nothing is not actually accurate.  [the authorities ]wrote me to report to me that [an entity] had been appointed Gloria Sykes’ guardian ad litem.   (This report became a typo 17 days later, but no investigation followed!)

In my opinion the conduct of the [authorities] is aiding and abetting the ‘elder cleansing’ of Mary Sykes.   It is also aiding the person who breached her fiduciary relationship to Mary Sykes avoid having to pay the United States of America and the State of Illinois the income taxes that are due.   As no one has been delegated the right to monitor, impede, censor, otherwise interfere with my, Ms Dension or other citizen’s First Amendment Rights, [the authorities] and every member of his staff involved has acted in an ultra vires manner acting under color of authority to deny and/or interfere with our civil rights.   As there has been and can be no delegation there can be no immunity!   Read the words of 42 USCA sec.  1983.

I am certain that the United States of America and the Illinois Department of Revenue are delighted by the ‘cover’ that [the authorities] have afforded the people who obtained benefits from the profits of their ‘elder cleansing’ and did not report and did not pay taxes on the benefits.   Tax evasion and aiding and abetting tax evasion historically has not been an accepted practice and I assume that with trillions of dollars in deficits the elder cleansing industry will ultimately have to pay its ‘fair share!’

It is my hope that I have answered the questions that have been presented.   I do not know if and when Law enforcement is going to address this ‘elder cleansing’ issue.    I do know that the law and basic civil rights are being violated and we need not only transparency but we need an HONEST complete and comprehensive investigation of not only the lawyers involved in elder cleansing but those who aid and abet them.   (I’ve again copied the ARDC, but having first hand experience I have little hope that they are interested in protecting the public.  The miscreants are safe to continue to prey on the old, infirm, and those citizens who are being targeted.   The removal of Mrs. Gore’s gold filings is a testament to perfidy that has been allowed to flourish. )
For the record, JoAnne Denison received word that the [authorities] desires to obtain a delay in her hearing before [the authorities].   It is my opinion that if the [authorities] operates under any guise of ‘good faith’ the charges brought against her should be dismissed and she provided suitable restitution for the ultra vires interference with her civil rights.

From Joanne;

It it utterly unconscionable that when Gloria has filed numerous notices to the court, demands upon the [authorities] that gold coins are missing, a safe deposit box was drilled, contents removed AND NO INVESTIGATION BY THEM, their behavior is scandalous.  [one entity] testified in a court of law on or about Sept. 12, 2013 that he served subpoenas on the bank and nothing came of it–this is despite the fact those subpoenas MUST be filed with the clerk and the Record on Appeal (“ROA”) shows no such subpoenas, no return of service and no affidavit of service in the ROA.  This is outrageous behavior for [an entity].  He should have served subpoenas on Pullman Bank for the signature sheets from April 2010, the video footage, names of the person in the vault area for what was said to them.  Instead nothing but a lie–and the [authorities], rather than investigate the lie which has been brought to their attention in the 43 points and 60+ points the [authorities] got wrong at KDD’s trial, they conspicuously ignore it themselves.

But this blog does not lie.  It tells the truth.  It knows there is funny business afoot and yet the [authorities] prosecutes the messengers in lieu of cleaning its own house.  Everyone has to put pressure on the Ill. Sup. Ct. to clean house at the [authorities].  Please write and call them and demand that the [authorities] comply with state law – 5 USC 420 and reveal all of their extracurricular dealings in finances and ethics.

Ask for the Chief Justice, Thomas L. Kilbride or any of the other justices and ask why there is no justice for Mary Sykes.  Where are her gold coins?  How many appeals have been filed before him and there was no justice for Mary Sykes.  Maybe she is just one little old lady of 93 who used to live in an inconspicuous 2 flat on the north side, but she was beloved by dozens of family members and friends, and I am one of them.

Here are the other justices:

Now, [an entity] has asked why aren’t the courts more open to the average man and woman, well besides the obvious cost of litigation and attorneys and rules books 4 inches thick that read like Japanese stereo instructions, why would anyone go to court when the story of Mary G. Sykes and the ARDC has been published on this blog?  What is the point?

Justice [redacted] needs to take these issues seriously and take control of his courts.  I know he is just one person, but he is the one person, unlike myself, Ken Ditkowsky, Janet Phelan, Gloria Sykes and many, many others who have posted here, that can make a gigantuan difference in these cases.

From Gloria Sykes–Why has Peter Schmeidel not been disciplined.

Dear Readers;

GJS has a number of complaints against PS, yet the ARDC keeps on ignorning them and dismissing them–despite the fact they have received the 3 affidavits here and have more than adequate reason to KNOW the probate court has been acting without jurisdiction for THREE years, and yet they do nothing, they say nothing.

In a similar vein, I sent Leah Black and the Administrator a copy of John Wyman’s book, and they know that case is operation without jurisdiction for three years.  Mr. John Wyman, as you know, has been complaining at the top of his lungs against everyone involved in that–including the US atty’s office, and nothing has been done there.

Big sigh.

So please read GJS’s letter below and take care

RE:  Attorney Peter Schmiedel
Dear Administrator,
I have filed many complaints against attorney Peter Schmiedel and to date, none have been investigated, let alone acknowledged, but each has been willy-nilly dismissed (although I have yet to receive one letter from the ARDC dismissing a complaint against him: apparently, the complaints just vanish!)  Below please find the last complaint against attorney Peter Schmiedel, the attorney I once spoke to (October 2009) outside Judge Connors Courtroom and after providing him with privileged information, and asking him if he would represent me, upon his request, he gave me his business card and asked me to call his office and contact the ‘intake’ personal and set up and appointment.  Remember, I provided him with information about ‘my’ situation, to which he gave me his business card and asked me to call. I find that Peter Schmiedel then, three months later, being retained by Carolyn Toerpe quite interesting and terribly wrong!  That said, on Oct. 3, 2012, once again Peter Schmiedel LIED to the Court in order to sway the ruling in his favor.  I am getting the transcripts, but let it be known, that Judge Stuart stayed her ruling pending the outcome of an appeal based on the core of this wrongful guardianship of my Mother, Mary G. Sykes: jurisdiction.
To wit, let me resubmit the complaint filed on March 31, 2012 against attorney Peter Schmiedel as none of the violations of the Codes of Professionalism have changed, he has simply been more empowered because the ARDC apparently is protecting him in order to use his testimony to disbar or sanction or do harm to attorney Kenneth Ditkowsky. It is also apparent that ARDC agent Lea Black has filed similar charges against Kenneth Ditkowsky — and attorney Kenneth Ditkowsky has never had an appearance on file in the Sykes case or in any case regarding me or my mother.  Attorney Lea Black, according to attorney Joel Brodsky, gave out confidential information in and regarding the first face to face interview with Kenneth Ditkowsky — as I guess she has give out documents he may have provided her in order to discredit me.  I find this behavior very sad, and in light that I complained about Joel Brodsky and provided the Administrator with verified court transcripts showing that Brodsky said that Lea Black provided him with confidential information about the aforesaid meeting with Ditkowsky — it is interesting that Lea Black is still an investigator at the ARDC and in fact, held to be the lead attorney in the case against Kenneth Ditkowsky.  Is this behavior appropriate for ARDC attorneys?  
Finally, and with all due respect, how do I file a complaint against ARDC attorney Lea Black, when in fact, she is an agent of the ARDC. Apparently she has used an unverified email claiming I wrote claiming I “Lied”.  Let me remind this Administration, Lea Black’s statement of fact to bring this document into the ARDC trial as evidence to discredit me as a witness, is a forged and altered documents, and I emphatically deny that I have ever been untruthful in any position I have taken, or continue to take, and/or asserted in any Illinois court proceedings, and/or in any court proceeding, including in the Probate Division, Forcible and Detainer Division, U.S. District Court, U.S. Bankruptcy Court, and or the Indian Court. 
Thank you for your quick response on the complaint below as it was file on March 31, 2012 and as far as I see, NEVER investigated. That said, doesn’t attorney Peter Schmiedel have a serious conflict of interest in representing Carolyn Toerpe when in fact, he asked me questions about my situation in the Probate proceedings where I was just an ‘interested party’ and gave me his card merely three months before being retained by Carolyn Toerpe through a payment agreement that financially exploits and willfully deprives my mother of her assets, her home, and all of my assets and home/property, too!  
I AM RESUBMITTING THE FOLLOWING COMPLAINT AGAINST ATTORNEY PETER SCHMIEDEL of which I’ve asked and given permission for all people to republish in order to protect my mother, Mary G. Sykes’ rights, liberties, and LIFE.

RE:  Attorney Peter Schmiedel
To Whom It May Concern at the ARDC,
(Most of this was filed with the ARDC in Nov. 2011: as I heard nothing from the ARDC regarding this complaint, I am refiling and adding recent violations perpetrated by attorney Peter Schmiedel.  Please note that Peter Schmiedel instructs other lawyers and law enforcement on how to investigate and prove)
Professionalism should be a part of every Illinois lawyer’s daily practice, or so I’ve read and been told. Attorney Peter Schmiedel may have memorized the Rules of Professional Responsibility in order to procure a license to practice law, but clearly he has failed in application. The rules, he can argue are unclear, and ethical dilemmas, ambiguous, but since he filed his appearance In Re the Estate of Mary G. Sykes, 2009 P 4585, Peter Schmiedel has repeatedly distorted the facts, misrepresented the facts, maliciously and intentionally LIED not only to Probate and Forcible judges, but also a Federal Judge (Transcript attacked from Bankruptcy proceeding, October 25, 2011): Mr.    the rules and case law make clear what is required.   In Jerman v. Carlisle, it is noted, “ignorance of the law is no excuse****) Pursuant Winthrop v. Supreme Court of Illinois, 848 N.E. 2d 961 (2006) 219 Ill.2d 526 302 Ill.Dec. 397,  “Our goal in imposing discipline on an attorney is not to punish the attorney, but rather to protect the integrity of the legal profession, and protect the administration of justice from reproach”. (also see In Re Cutright, 2009), Peter Schmiedel must be disbarred and sanctioned!
Schmiedel has violated so many of the Rules of Professional Conduct, it is impossible to name them all, although I will touch on a few.
Counts I, II, III  and IV are set before you clearly and concisely as possible: court transcripts have been provided to you in the past: PLEASE TURN TO TRANSCRIPTS OF October 25, 2011 where Peter Schmiedel appeared before a Federal Judge Hollis n Bankruptcy Court.134 Ill.2d R. 3.3(a)(2).    (1) failure to disclose a material fact to a tribunal (134 Ill.2d R. 3.5(h));  (2) engaged in conduct involving fraud, dishonesty, deceit, or misrepresentation (210 Ill.2d R. 8.4(a)(4));  (3) engaged in conduct that is prejudicial to the administration of justice (210 Ill.2d R. 8.4(a)(5));  and (4) engaged in conduct “which tends to defeat the administration of justice or to bring the courts or the legal profession into disrepute” in violation of Supreme Court Rule 770 (210 Ill.2d R. 770).
Peter Schmiedel committed violations of Rule 3.3(a)(2) when he failed to advise the Probate Court that his client closed Mary G. Sykes’ account at the Pullman Bank and removed all the contents from a safety deposited box at the same location, one that had not only Mary G. Sykes’ name on it I was a renter too!
1.     Peter Schmiedel knows his client is in possession of a substantial amount of Mother’s funds, as well as legal contracts between Mother and Me, Mother and lawyers, including a draft of the new Trust mother had initiated on June 25, 2009.
2.     Peter Schmiedel kept from the court Mother’s bank statements from 2006, 2007, 2008 2009, and 2010 because he knows that Mother had substantial funds in three accounts (Schmiedel’s client only gave numbers to two of the accounts),
3.     Peter Scshmiedel knows that Mary G. Sykes / Gloria Jean Sykes (me) had a bag of gold and silver coins in the safety deposit box owned by Mother and me, and that his client is now in possession of those coins;
4.     Peter Schmiedel knows that there is no CD or IRA account that Mother opened in January 2009 for $4000, leaving his client the sole beneficiary;
5.     Peter Schmiedel knows that there is no “joint’ account between Mother and his client wheeby Mother gave his client about $25,000 in 2005 (or 06);
6. Peter Schmiedel knows that his client Carolyn Toerpe is not the Trustee of the Mary G. Sykes Trust and that it’s a “naked trust” and that Mary G. Sykes, if she were to diagnosed incompetent and there was a trustee, then only Mary’s primary doctor, P. Patel can authorize such diagnosis.  (Peter Schmiedel has seen the letter Dr. Patel wrote to his client stating that he refused to sign the CCP211 because Mary is competent and Mary told him not to!)
7. Attorney Schmiedel knows that his client is not a PhD and yet he did not notify the court that the legal document his client filed signing PhD after her name is fraudulent (the CCP211);
8.  Attorney Schmiedel knows that his client has over medicated, and medically neglected Mary G. Sykes and that he has in fact told his client to isolate Mary from family and friends;
9.  Attorney Sschmiedel has seen the letters Mary has hand-written denouncing Toerpe and asking for an attorney: he has viewed all the digital recordings of Mary proving she is not only highly competent, but also that Mary stated her wishes clearly and that Schmiedel’s client cannot sell Mary’s home, cannot evict me from Mary’s home and cannot force the sale on my home;
10.     Peter Schmiedel knows that none of the settlement money from the Lumbermen’s case belongs to Mother and that Mother was as she still is, highly competent then and now;
11.     And, Peter Schmiedel knows that his client is the named respondent on a petition for an order of protection and therefore, his client cannot be the guardian of Mary G. Sykes, my Mother; that it was Mother who filed the verified Petition for an order of protection to stop Peter Schmiedel’s client from doing exactly what she is trying to do, and that is financially and emotionally sterilize Mary G. Sykes through retaliating against me!
  This rule provides, “In appearing in a professional capacity before a tribunal, a lawyer shall not ***(2) fail to disclose to a tribunal a material fact knows to the lawyer when disclosure is necessary to avoid assisting a criminal or fraudulent act by a client.”  134 Ill.2d R. 3.3(a)(2).  Furthermore, Peter Schmiedel has told not only the Probate Court, but the Forcible and the Bankruptcy courts that he also represents Mary G. Sykes, which leads me to…
(2)  Peter Schmiedel has a serious CONFLICT OF INTEREST.  His client Carolyn Toerpe, the named respondent to the petition for an order of protection, has also secured herself as the sole beneficiary of the Mary G. Sykes estate, of which Peter Schmiedel made an agreement for payment from the (1) assets belonging to me from the Lumbermen’s case (see Lumbermen’s v. Gloria Sykes), the sale of Mother’s home, and the forced partition and sale of my home, where I placed Mother as a joint tenant for survivorship only and mother, in her trust stipulates that her “ONLY INTEREST’ is if she precedes me in life. Peter Schmiedel knows that it’s an “expectancy of an inheritance” and not an asset to Mother’s Trust and yet Peter Schmiedl has hired a court friendly psychologist, Gefforey Shaw, who having never met, treated, or even spoke with Mother’s physician in 2008 or current, took the stand many months ago and stated that Mary G. Sykes was ‘incompentent’ on October 18, 2008 and therefore didn’t know what she was signing ****”  Peter Schmiedel also made a pack with one of his GAL buddies to be the Commissioner who determines the sale of my property.
As confusing as this sounds, attorney Peter Schmiedel is a ‘pathological liar’ and has repeatedly misrepresented facts to five judges, including State and Federal Justices; he has deliberately provided false information to Judge Connors, Judge Stuart, Judge Flemming, Judge Garaber, Judge Hollis, Judge Gilbert and to a string of Justices sitting on the Appellate Court, where Judge Connors was spontaneously promoted in Oct., Dov 2010.  That said attorney Peter Schmiedel opens his mouth and ‘lies’ spew in the form of and including misinformation, and false information to the ARDC and it’s Commissioners!  ”Pseudologia fantastica’, or ‘story telling’ in order to prejudice the Court and discredit — a sort of a matrix of fantasy interwoven with some facts is narrated in over 11 volumes of verified court transcripts and most of which the ARDC has in it’s files if, in fact, it kept the numerous and large files of complaints I have submitted. It is my humble opinion that a psychiatrist expert able to read the transcripts and watch and listen to Peter Schmiedel in action in front of a Court, any Court, would probably conclude, attorney Peter Schmiedel is a pathological liar.
Peter Schmiedel should be reminded that “[a] lawyer’s high vocation is to correctly inform the court upon the law and the facts of the case and to aid it in doing justice and arriving at correct conclusions.”  In re Braner, 115 Ill.2d 384 392 105 Ill. Dec. 233, 504 N.E.2d 102 (19987) quoting People ex rel. Attorney General v. Beattie, 137 Ill. 553, 574, 27 N.E. 1096(1891).  Peter Schmiedel should be disbarred and sanctioned.
(3)  Peter Schmiedel violated Rule 4.1(a) by providing false information to 3rdparties, including the Probate Court, Forcible Court, U.S. Bankruptcy Trustee, a Federal Judge, Naperville Police, Catholic Charities, (the list is endless).  Therefore, Peter Schmiedel has provided FALSE STATEMENT(S) OF MATERIAL FACT(S) TO A THRID PERSON in order  benefit himself and his client.  To do so, he has also demonized me, all in retaliation for me standing up to protect my Mother (almost 93 years old) and because I have filed complaints against him and asked for his disbarment.  He does this all by hiding behind the color of office and law…. Rule 4.1(1) provides: “In the course of representing a client a lawyer shall not (a) make a statement of material fact or law to a third person which statement the lawyer knows or reasonably should know is false.”  134 Ill.2dR. 4.1(a).
(4)  Suffice to say, Peter SChmiedel’s CONDUCT INVOLVES DISHONESTY, FRAUD, DECEIT AND MISREPRESENATION, and therefore he is also in vilation of Rue 8.4(s)(4) and Supreme Court Rule 771.  Rule 8.4(a)(4) provides that a lawyer shal not “engage in conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit or misrepresentation”. 188 Ill.2dR. 8.4(a)(4).  Supremee Court Rule 771 provides that conduct “which tend to defeat the administration of justice or to bring the courts or the legal profession into disrepute shall be grounds for discipline by the court.”  134 Ill.2d R. 771.  Peter Schmiedel violated both of these rules when he (recently) relayed false information to the Federal Court (Judge Pamela Hollis and the U.S. Trustee) regarding the “Probate Exception” and that my assets, mother’s home, and my home were being probated, therefore the Bankruptcy Court should modify the automatic stays.  (Peter Schmiedel, as transcribed in the attach Transcript, also intentionally prejudiced the court and told Judge Hollis that I “hid money”, “was arrested”,  et al. Peter Schmiedel, in order to fraud the court, had me served with a “Pizza Flyer” and then had attorney Cynthia Farenga’s husband write a verified letter to the court stating that I was served according to procedures…..”)  Peter Schmiedel LIED TO THE COURTS so many times, that this transcript shows that since the ARDC has not disbarred and sanctioned him, but empowered him.
Peter Schmiedel’s conduct involves dishonesty, deceit, and misrepresentation which has brought the legal profession into disrepute!.
(5)  SANCTIONS:  Peter Schmiedel has defrauded not only an elderly woman and knows that her money has been converted (or he is attempting to convert her funds and property), (see In re Holst, 201 Ill.2d 628 (2002); In re Wiard, 198 Ill.2d 662 (2002); In re Garside, 195 Ill.2d 607 (2001); In re Bartley, M.R. 15176 (1998); In re Singer, M.R. 14064 (1997); In re Rotman, 136 Ill.2d 401, 144 Ill.Dec. 776, 556 N.E.2d 243 (1990).)
By not disbarring Peter Schmiedel and sanctioning him, too, you are allowing him to continue his dishonesty and deceitful conduct, and continue to pilfer not only my mother’s property and funds, but my property and funds, too and gives his client, Carolyn Toerpe further opportunity to victimize, financially exploit, and emotionally and medically neglect mother, while Peter Schmiedel and his client continue to retaliate against me.
This retaliation and obstruction of justice also includes the theft of my mail, U.S. Mail he actually brought to the Bankruptcy Court and the Probate Court, that had my name and address on it: Peter Schmiedel refused to return my mail and in fact, the US Postal Inspector is still involved in an investigation.  The one envelop he had was addressed to me: the court read into record also evidence that it had no authorized or any markings ‘return to’ Peter Schmiedel.  Peter Schmiedel told me to my face and with witnesses, that I am a “waste of” his time.  He’s accused me of theft, abusing my mother, and of lying: however, Peter Schmiedel has no evidence of this but obviously clout with certain Courts. That said, Peter Schmiedel admitted to the Probate Court that he “had a good day” when I was illegally and fasely imprisoned, chained to a chair with handcuffs, my freedoms threatened as well as the life of my companion healing pooch: Peter Schmiedel then got the court to cross over state lines and freeze assets of a third party’s bank account.
The ARDC will have a good day too, should the agents do the right thing and investigate Peter Schmiedel, who also orchestrated and succeeded in persuading the sickly Judge Garber to enter an order of possession for his client and denying Mary G. Sykes the right to be in court: this action has caused me serious emotional, physical and financial hardships.  Peter Schmiedel lied to me when he told me that his client was agreeable to giving me ‘ample’ time to remove my property, when in fact, he also told his client to loot, seize evidence and do whatever she can to harass, intimidate and silence me.  Under attorney Peter Schmiedel’s authority, his client is in serious violations of the bankruptcy stays as they have taken unauthorized control and converted all of my person and professional property to the ownership of Carolyn Toerpe.  Peter Schmiedel is also obstructing justice as he has authorized his client to remove, destroy or discard all of my litigation evidence for the Probate Court, Forcible and Detainer, U.S. District Court (ADA complaint where Peter Schmiedel’s client is a defendant); U.S. District Bankruptcy Court adversary proceedings where he, Peter Schmiedel and also his client are Defendants; as well as in the U.S. District Court of Appeals where I will prevail on the merits that Peter Schmiedel has no standing and is not a creditor and therefore, cannot bring a motion to modify any bankruptcy stay.
Additionally, the respondent had also entered into a business transaction with a client without full disclosure[1], made a statement of material fact or law that he should have known was false, and engaged in conduct that tends to defeat the administration of justice or brings the courts or legal profession into disrepute.  Twohey, 191 Ill.2d at 84, 245 Ill.Dec. 294, 727 N.E.2d 1028.
Therefore a minimum of two year suspension is justifiable as well as Peter Schmiedel reimbursing the Client Protection Program Trust Fund for any client protection payments arising from his conduct prior to the termination of the period of suspension.[2]

[1] Peter Schmiedel entered into a business transactions with Carolyn Toerpe, the named respondent for a petition for a protective order, that he would only get paid if (1) he helped get rid of me, Gloria Jean Sykes; and to do that (2) have me evicted and take possession of Mother’s home located at 6014 N. Avondale, (3) sell Mother’s home; (4) take control of my assets and leave me penniless, (5) force a partition of and then sale of my home located at 6016 N. Avondale (6) render me homeless, and (7) not provide any of Mother’s financial statements to the Courts.  Another words, Peter Schmiedel(s) only source of payment was through the wrongful and fraudulent acts of  ***********.
[2] Peter Schmiedel has received numerous complaints to the ARDC verified by me of which court transcripts were made available to the ARDC and the JIB.  He has at all times never been able to defend his actions, but in his replies, he continues to LIE, and misrepresent the facts to the ARDC.  Peter Schmiedel’s actions have shortened my mother’s life: his arrogant, blatant and ever consistent actions and narrative to various Judges, including the Civil and Federal Courts will in fact, “murder” Mary G. Sykes and also cause me irreparable and egregious harm.

The Constitution vs. Pole Dancers of Justice*

What is most amazing is the fact that the Courts should be so benign in their defense of the victims of Elder Abuse/Financial Exploitation of the Elder and so pro-active in their defense of the criminals who are appointed by it and who misuse their offices as guardians to exploit and abuse senior citizens (or assist others in their endeavor of abusing and exploiting grandma).    What is also amazing is the fact that decent and normally caring people can sit on their hands and allow this tragic situation to continue.     Two faced and disingenuous members of the political elite who ‘rape’ grandma and then boast about the fact that they are distressed that she might have her social security reduced by a dollar are expected to be miscreants.       The Courts and Law Enforcement are expected to be vigorous in defense of liberty, justice, and the American way.     It may all sound trite – but ****.
The Illinois ARDC prosecution of yours truly for the exercise of my First Amendment Rights has opened my eyes and generated the realization that the slogan “democracy is not a spectator sport” is not only true but a dire warning.        The bulwark of America is her Bill of Rights and in particular the First and Fifth Amendments to the United States Constitution.    The Right protected by the Sixth Amendment to counsel is also important but I am not of record in any of the cases that I are mentioned in the ethics complaint filed by the ARDC against me.  The rights of citizens to employ a lawyer who is not married to the ‘status quo’ or the current politics is only a tangent.       So the fact that I stand accused of doing a FRCP 11 investigation and communicating with my clients and reporting serious misconduct on the part of some ‘august’ court appointed vultures is relevant only as it relates to whether or not the ARDC can engage in a prior restraint of my continued calls for an investigation and my advocating for the Right of a senior citizen not to be wrongfully deprived of his/her liberty property or human rights to further the avarice of some ‘whore of justice.’
As an American Citizen and a lawyer who takes the oath that I took in 1961 seriously, I will and intend to continue to call on Law Enforcement to Investigate the Mary Sykes case and all of those similar cases regardless of the personal consequences to me.     Indeed, I call for an honest and comprehensive investigation of the Sykes, Tyler, Wyman and similar cases.    I call for the investigation of Farenga, Stern, and Schmiedel and their conduct in relation to the Sykes case, their wrongful prosecution of a sanction motion against me knowing that the Court had no jurisdiction, their interference with the property rights of Gloria Sykes etc.       This is America.     Mary Sykes who just weeks before a petition was filed to determine her incompetent and eligible to be deprived of her liberty, her property, civil rights and human rights is reported to have passed a written examination administered by the Illinois Secretary of State in addition to filing a Petition for a Protective order against the very person who was appointed her plenary guardian.    Thanks to efforts of the two guardian ad litem appointed in the Sykes case this petition was never addressed or heard in the Circuit Court.
   If legal justification for my conduct is necessary, the rationale and justification is ‘set in stone.     The New Times vs. Sullivan case and the Pentagon Papers cases affirm that the effort to silence me and/or intimidate me whether by the actions of Mr. Stern, Ms. Farenga or Mr. Schmiedel or a government agency is wrong.      The ‘assault’ on the liberty, property and civil rights of Mary Sykes, Gloria Sykes, their family, their friends et al is not necessitated by National Security –  the avarice of the plenary guardian and her co-conspirators does not meet the criterion set forth by the United States Supreme Court in the Pentagon Papers case.       As a lawyer I have a greater duty to speak out against the corruption of the legal system and even if I had been or record the precedent of Nebraska Press v Stewart obviates all argument that justifies the attempt to silence me.    Indeed, my calls for an investigation and for Mr. Stern and Ms. Farenga to report to the Court the non-inventory of about a million dollars in assets, numerous trips by Mary Sykes to the emergency room of the local hospital, failure to provide proper notice etc. does not create a situation in which there would be a substantial probability of interference with a fair trial (Gentile v State Bar of Nebraska).       Indeed, the stated principle of the Illinois State Bar is recorded in Himmel.   Therein Attorneys were mandated to report improper conduct of other lawyers.     
I’ve cited a few cases not to impress but to demonstrate that I am not a pioneer.     The Gulag mentality that is robbing the senior citizens of the liberty, their property, civil rights and human rights reported on the blogs and on the inter-net (and virtually ignored in the press and by law enforcement) is foreign.    Our heroes are not the guardian ad litem who aid and abet a plenary guardian who isolates a senior citizen and separates her from her family, her activities, her friends and her property.      Today we live in the year 2012, however, we have allowed a small group of miscreants to create in seniors the fear, desperation, and hopelessness that millions of Europeans felt in 1936.    
            The Sykes case and all those cases in which senior citizens are either losing their liberty, property, civil rights, human rights need to be investigated and the miscreants given free room board and time to contemplate the error of their ways.      A Free society cannot tolerate or condone the events that have been reported in the Sykes case and similar cases!       Citizens have to speak out and avoid the 1936 scenario for grandma!      Grandma’s protectors cannot be silenced or intimidated.     We have law enforcement to protect us!     It is time for them to start doing exactly that.

*an no offense to Pole Dancers.  I know they honest, hard working women trying to support a family or get thru college.  Corrupt officials are pretty much the low of the low dirty, flea dogs.  Okay no offense to dirty flea dogs, I wish a good family for them.

From Ken Ditkowsky–an epidemic of worries concerning the elderly

America faces a crisis.   Suddenly a large number of our older citizens have discovered that they are the ‘Jews’ of 2012 and the replacements for the Nazi and Communist criminals have targeted them.    The ARDC complaint filed against me was my wakeup call that the Constitutional protections of the Federal and State Constitutions were not applicable to protect protest.    The regulators of the Legal Profession determined that if you protest the actions (or the non-actions)  of the two guardian ad litem and or the plenary guardian in the Sykes case no matter how accurate your statements – they are all lies!     If you ask a question it is intimidation!
The unintended consequences of the ARDC complaint are to induce some elderly citizens to confide in me as to their personal plight and their fears that they too can become victims.    Yesterday, an elderly accountant whose wife has become severely encumbered expressed in confidence that he was afraid that an impaired child of his could be induced into a Tyler or Gore  situation.    This morning an elderly retired businessman was concerned that a daughter was planning to make him a Mary Sykes.    It appears yesterday his daughter was ***** (attorney client privilege).
Over the years other elderly people ( 70/80 years old) have talked to me over the years about similar problems, but, I was not aware of the extent of the problem and we used irrevocable trusts to obviate the problem which I dismissed as paranoia or maybe a mild dementia.       After all my children would never ‘steal’ from me – or my wife, thus your children would not either.       Unfortunately we are in a different world today.     Who would believe that the World Trade Center could be destroyed by a motley group of terrorists!!     Who would believe that the First Amendment rights of an attorney would not be defended to the death by legal organizations and the profession in general!!    Who would believe that the non-inventory of about a million dollars in assets would not stir and investigation!!!     The idea that Court appointed attorneys would write letters of complaint to the ARDC and they would be taken seriously concerning the call for an investigation is utterly surreal!
Our complaints as to current outrages directed to you and me all beg the question!      What happens to me or any friend or family of a victim is irrelevant.     How do we protect our senior citizens from exploitation and abuse?     In 1936 the world sat on its hands while millions of innocents were marched into gas chambers!    Our government had no problem refusing entry to a ship load of escapees!   We sent them back so that they could be killed in the gas chambers.    We openly placed some of our citizens of Oriental descent in ‘concentration camps’ in the Mohave Desert!    Today we march our senior citizens in ‘nursing homes,’ ‘sheltered care facilities’,  etc.      I call your attention to the affidavit of Mr. Scott Evans as to his observations concerning Mary Sykes environment.    Death is a little more painful and a little longer than the ‘gas chambers!’     Like our National socialist ancestors some our bolder and less principled Court appointed guardians separate the victims from their assets.    Mary Sykes had about a million dollars of assets not inventoried.    Ms. Tyler about nine millions missing.   The list goes on, and the silence is deafening.
I support the call for a comprehensive and honest investigation by law enforcement of every one of these alleged Elder Abuse/Financial Exploitation claims.    There is no reason why an alleged incompetent should be segregated and isolated from his/her family.   There is no reason why an alleged incompetent should be held in isolation and without stimulation.   There is no reason that the assets of an alleged incompetent have to disappear and lost.    There is no reason why guardians ad litem  should not immediately report nursing home accidents (such as an alleged incompetent falling on his her head),  emergency visits – especially those in which neglect is admitted,  allegations of pecuniary misconduct – non-inventory of precious jewelry, collectibles, gold coins etc.     There is no reason why probate courts should not investigate the alleged misconduct and determine that it has jurisdiction.
Unfortunately before a solution for this growing problem can be formulated law enforcement, the Courts, the Congress, the State Legislatures have to do a full investigation.     The serious allegations that have been made need to be fully and honestly investigated – investigation of the complainants is ridiculous but unfortunately the CYA and avarice mentality that has created the crisis.

And KD fails to mention that the other day I received a completely shocking report from Ms. Belanger–a Mass. licensed atty whose father is in a guardianship where a CPA and GAL asserted in court that unbelievably his $9 million estate will be depleted in 7 years!  She asks me if that is true.  I replied, it is as long as they figure a way to churn those fees into millions and give business to each of their buddies over the next 7 years–nursing homes, mega pharma treatments at wired in docs, rehab that goes on forever, psychiatric care that goes on forever.  You name it and this $9 million lawyer that gave his two daughters POA and set up a trust to protect his estate from probate, now has a GAL and a CPA as guardian churning those fees and preventing the daughters from seeing their own father!  They have been told it is “too upsetting”. Dad is on major psychotropic medicines because he wants to pick up the phone to call his daughters, he wants to get it in the car and drive to their homes and see his own grandchildren.  But Mass. Probate court prohibits it because–he has $9 million in a bank account at Mellon, NYC and the court appointed a lawyer and a CPA over his own daughters and ignored his well planned estate wishes.  All because Ms. Belanger was dealing with the bank one day and threatened to move the money and they swept in with dad’s former CPA and attorney and put them in charge!  Scary.  He is now a doped up prisoner in his own home.  He too, was “not interested” in attending the competency hearing–when in fact he was and the temp guardian already had it in place to have him drugged that day.
