Lea Black’s Petition to BAR Gloria from testifying at Ken’s proceeding against the ARDC

As ridiculous as this sounds, it is true. Lea Black (ARDC) has filed a petition to BAR Gloria from testifying on the basis that she was “uncooperative” in setting up a place and time for her deposition. Gloria has gone to the lengths of transforming a suite room into a conference room to appease Ms Black. Does that sound uncooperative?

Ken puts it eloquently as to what the ARDC is essentially doing by filing this motion:

“I know it is difficult to believe that the ARDC filed a petition to punish me for complaining about judicial corruption in Cook County and in particular:

 
1) objecting to Stern, Farenga, Schmiedel et al denying Mary Sykes (a senior citizen age 90plus) of her rights, privileges and immunities guaranteed under the United States Constitution
 
2) Circuit Court Judges and court appointed lawyers ignoring the jurisdictional limitations of the Courts and in particular those designed by the legislature to protect senior citizens.   A judge has a duty to determine if he/she has jurisdiction.   In the Sykes case it appears that (using the words of Adam Stern) ‘it is a technicality!’     I just hope that at some point in time Adam Stern, Cynthia Farenga et al have to personally address that technicality.
3) Objecting to the non-inventory of over a million dollars in assets belonging to Mary Sykes!    LG asked Mr. Evans if he considered that theft!   It makes no difference if Mr. Evans considers it theft or not!   Theft is unauthorized control and except in these probate cases that is unauthorized control    It is also a taxable event.    I calculate that with the taxes due, interest and penalties at this point in time the conspirators owe in excess of a million dollars to the United States of America.  (Mr. Dubow – the accountant informs me that the interest is 5per cent per month up to 25% of the tax due.    The fraud penalty – for the breach of fiduciary relationship and the concealment – is 50%.    The tax is 30%.  Ms Toerpe should be sleeping very well at night knowing that at this point in time she and the conspirators to evade the legitimate income taxes owed to the United States of America can help Mr. Obama make a dent in the debt!”
Banning someone simply because setting up a deposition proves a bit difficult is UNHEARD of. It’s simply not a reason. But of course, desperate times call for desperate measures. Judicial corruption is about to be exposed and Lea Black is doing everything she can to hinder this.
Below are both the motion to bar Gloria Sykes and Ken’s response to that motion. It should not be long before we get news that Lea Black’s motion is DENIED if there is even an ounce of justice in the justice system.

Comments from Ken Ditkowsky on MISSING documents and pleadings in 09 P 4585

It looks like we have entered the Spoliation of the evidence phase.   The two Guardian ad litem and the plenary guardian are aware that for the 2nd time they have neglected the technicality of jurisdiction and are hanging out there ‘naked!’    (The first was the direct intimidation threat via the sanction motion, and this one is more serious as it arises from the failure to provide Mary Sykes with the protections that she is required to be provided by statute – the failure to provide these protections strips the Court of Jurisdiction (Sodini))

It should be noted that as so many years have gone by without the Court having jurisdiction and with Gloria complaining of the lack of jurisdiction any defense at this point in time would either be a sham or an oxymoron.
Let me make this very clear as I have copied law enforcement and the many of the people who have joined in the fight to stamp out elder abuse and financial exploitation of the elderly by the political elite and their ‘court appointed friends.’    (see GAO September Report to Congress)   In the Sykes case law enforcement has absolutely no further excuse for not acting.   JoAnne Denison’s work has reduced this case down to simple embezzlement, breach of fiduciary relationship, theft, false imprisonment.   In the flotsam of the forcible entry and detainer action wrongfully filed and wrongfully prosecuted there was trespass, battery, and theft committed.  (Gloria went to the States Attorney and they refused to prosecute).
How does all of this happen in the United States of America and law enforcement and government totally ignore all of this miscreant behavior.  The ARDC has a history of note ‘covering themselves with glory’  in Greylord and in some of the other scandals = but by in large law enforcement has been the saving grace.   Why not now!    At the very least you would think with the budget crisis that both the State and the Federal Governments suffer the Department of the Treasury would be interested in collecting taxes.  (I guess that collecting taxes from the political elite is not a priority – a rough calculation of the taxes, interest, and penalties due in Sykes is a million dollars and in Tyler – seven to eight million!  Breach of Fiduciary relationship is a taxable event)
Where is that honest complete and comprehensive investigation of Sykes case, the Tyler cse, the Gore case, the Wyman case and the dozens of other similar cases?    Why is the GAO report being ignored.

What’s the deal with the [agency] complaints taking sooooo long to be dismissed

Dear Readers;
One of the issues I have been struggling with is that the [agency] complaints against Ken and myself for simply running a blog about the Sykes case.  I just can’t figure that one out.
It’s clearly a blog, it’s clear neither Ken nor I represent Gloria or Mary, we’re just concerned.  I also have known Gloria, Carolyn, Fred, Mary G, Scott, Doris and other friends and family for years.  I don’t get that.  Ken was the family attorney, so why is Ken accused of lying about all of this?  If anyone should know about $1 million in gold coins and cash in the mattress, Ken would know.  I also checked directly with the friends and family and the gold coins and cash are well known.  No one is amused by the cash grab by the miscreants.  All the family–with the exception of the miscrants–agrees that Gloria was doing a great and loving job of taking care of her mother for 10+ years.
There’s little to dispute in this case–outside of the 18th floor, where the case suddenly enters the Twilight Zone with time, space and perception being dramatically warped into something bizarre, twisted and unreal.  And out of that twisted, warped court room media has flowed a story that is strangely not investigated at all by the [agency] prior to filing a public complaint against Ken Ditkowsky.
So here is his most interesting explanation below.
take care all,
JoAnne Denison
Now from Ken Ditkowsky:
My theory on why the [agency] complaints against us prosper is that fact that there is a great deal of money involved.   The value of the commodity goes down if there is a risk of disbarment.   Lets take an example.   A [entity] for being deaf and dumb and running cover for the [entity] is promised a fee of $100,000.00.   this 100,000 can be paid part in taxable currency (check and/or court award and part in under the table funds – or all in under the table funds) The under the table funds can be a discount on a vehicle, discount on real estate, some fungible, gold coins etc.
A referral fee of 1/3 is paid to the sponsor.   In Sykes [it may be] believe it is a political person who is receiving ‘nursing home dollars.’    In that case it would be a campaign contribution.   (Gloria unearth a bunch of campaign contributions to the person she suspects as being the ‘clout!’ – she has come to her conclusions from a different angle and would probably resist my analysis.)
If the political person receives campaign contributions he/she incurs no taxable income until she/he elects to pay the taxes on the funds.    As no one knows that our [entity] has received dollar one he is not going to tell anyone.   He has a windfall.    All that happens is the disabled person’s estate is reduced and no one is the wiser.
In the Sykes case about a million dollars is not inventoried.   Shut you up, me up, Gloria up and no one has to pay dollar one in Federal Income Taxes!    Let us go one step further.   Why do the [entities] fear an investigation.  A trained investigator is going to ask questions.   Questions lead to answers.   Answers lead to more questions and in the investigator is independent someone is going to have to account for about a million dollars of inventoried treasure trove.
The [entities] for the plenary guardian have filed numerous complaints with the [agency] concerning you and me.    Ask yourself why?   Ask yourself if the regulators are ‘pure!’    The GSA scandal of recent days should give a clue to the right answer!    Also ask yourself why my ‘safe harbour’ (settlement) e-mails were taken out of context and are the basis of the [entity] complaint against me filed by the [entity].   Why is unethical for me to offer the [entity] a release from the Civil Rights claim that I have against them in exchange for them just doing their jobs?   As you know I wrote the [entities] and suggested that if they had nothing to hide join and ask for an independent investigation!   We have a better chance of having the President appointing either one or us  Secretary of State
Of course the [entities], et al all might be pure, sweet and a virgin.   It might just be a coincidence that the [entity] complaints against us are given credence even in the face of massive evidence to the contrary and the complaints against the [entities] for the plenary guardian are just tossed!   As I said we have a right to differ and I will fight to the death to protect your right to disagree with me.
Do not fall down a rabbit hole!

Ken Ditkowsky’s Answer to the Complaint filed against him by the ARDC via Cynthia Farenga

Link below to KD’s Answer, Motion to Dismiss and Affirmative Defenses to the bogus ARDC complaint filed against him for merely calling for an investigation and emailing those that can investigate or help in that and posting to this blog! Imagine posting to a blog to get an investigation started is an ARDC complaint!

https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B6FbJzwtHocwR1lBd3NjMVVLdVU

Dear Readers;

As you are probably aware, Ken Ditkowsky and I are so far the only Illinois lawyers to protect Mary G and publicly fight the grave injustices done to Mary G Sykes, a woman ripped out of her home by a relative she rarely visited, and now lives isolated in a remote suburb of Naperville.  The daughter Gloria who cared for her mother admirably for the past 10 years–an arrangement well known in the family–has been evicted from her home, she was ordered (without a hearing or any due process or service) to stop working on her home to make it habitable after mold damage, then the court froze her $200,000 in Indiana so she is now homeless and penniless.

Why?  So the other sister can sell both homes, put the money in a trust that she benefits from!

Watch the video links shown below, sign the petitions, let the world know that you will not stand for an Illinois grandma and American citizen to be abused like this.  In the videos she knows what she wants.  She wants to live at home until she passes, she wants Gloria to care for her and she wants her property divided equally between her daughters.  She is NOT incompetent to that extent.

Kend Ditkowsky and I have been caught up in all of this because we have been working tirelessly on this blog and to inform others of this situation–and those attorneys who will churn fees at hundreds of dollars per hour–want us silenced.  They apparently have a lot of clout in Probate and even with the ARDC.

Two complaints remain against myself and Ken Ditkowsky–mainly for publishing the truth about the situation on this blog and in emails, and also to call for an investigation of elder abuse.  Apparently, when it’s the court and clout connected attorneys doing the abuse, it’s no longer abuse.  And when you stand to be awarded with tens of thousands in attorneys fees, you get to loot what you want from the elderly.

Please read the attached Answer to the ARDC’s complaint and help us out.

thank you.

JoAnne Denison

From Ken Ditkowsky

Dear Gloria and JoAnne;
Sorry that you did not receive this answer, motion to dismiss, and affirmative defense that I filed in relation to the spurious complaint filed against me by the ARDC.    As you are aware I have very sensitive to any attempt by anyone that is reasonably calculated to shut me up.   What is most disturbing is the fact that in reference to the Request to admit that I served on the ARDC that required them to either admit or deny the basic facts that they claimed were in the e-mails and which were untrue, the ARDC admitted that the administrator had no information to either admit or deny the fact.   Indeed, if they have no information they cannot reasonably suggest that anything that I said.
It gets worse.   The first pleading that I filed was a motion to dismiss pursuant to 735 ILCS 5/2 619.   This motion had three affidavits attached in support.   The first affidavit was Gloria’s affidavit.   The second was Scott’s affidavit.   The third was the ADA verified complaint filed in the United States District Court.   All of these affidavits confirmed the fact that every word that I wrote in the various e-mails referred to ARDC complaint filed against me was in fact true and accurate.    To my utter surprise the attorney for the ARDC worte in her response to the Motion that there were no affidavit attached in support of the Motion.    (This is the very same attorney who without my permission called my client JoAnne.  Then when I objected to such an obvious breach, instead of just saying I’m sorry it was mistake she tried to **** her way out of it)
The ARDC has published their spurious complaint against me on their website, therefore, I assume that they will also publish this answer, and thus make available to law enforcement and others the information contained therein including but not limited to discriminatory enforcement of the ethical rules in such a manner as to thwart lawyerly complaints of corruption.
As I state in my answer, Illinois has a wonderful set of laws; however, they mean nothing as no one cares to enforce them.    Thus, Mary Sykes has lost her liberty, her property, and her human rights, and Gloria Sykes who has stood strong and tall in attempting to protect her mother has been subjected to the loss of her property, her liberty, and intimidation and harassment.    It should be noted that every single lawyer who Gloria has sought help from has been ‘talked to’ by Farenga, Stern, and/or Schmiedel and they have either been turned, or frightened off except you JoAnne and yours truly.   The ARDC has received complaints against both of us, and is prosecuting me as I by complaining about the elder abuse/financial exploitation and the theft of Mary’s property am tending to bring the profession into disrepute.    Of course the people who are participating are ‘model and ethical lawyers!’
There is a humorous aspect to the ARDC complaint.    Even though I am a stranger to the Sykes litigation and have not filed an appearance for anyone and there is no way that I could profit one way or another, the complaint echos the Alice in Wonderland averment that I complain about the theft of Mary’s property and Gloria’s property to secure an advantage in the pending litigation.   Indeed, except for the possibility of falling down the rabbit hole there is no possibility for this to occur.
Please publish the Answer etc.

And I would like to note (JMD) that if you follow the money trail, it leads directly to the Plenary Guardian, the GALS’s Adam Stern and Cynthia Farenga, and the Guardian’s attorney’s Harvey Waller and Peter Schmeidel/Dorothy Soehlig!

I have not received a dime from Gloria in years.  I am doing this blog for free.  Ken has tirelessly written emails, letters an d posts from this blog–all without pay!

It would appear that Mary G has been fleeced–of her home, about a million in gold coins numerous other relative can verify, as well as other property the family can and would verify if given a chance.

thanks for what you can do for Mary G, 93 years old and professionally abused.

JoAnne

Title:

Watch Mary G Sykes–a victim of elder abuse, probate abuse and financial abuse who was declared “incompetent” speak her mind clearly!  Amazing footage of what the Illinois court considers “incompetence”!

Amazingly enough, she is supposed to be incompetent and her GAL’s Adam Stern GAL and Cynthia Farenga GAL have conveniently arranged a guardianship where her desires are NOT being carried out. She wants to live at home and have her daughter Gloria care for her in Mary’s home until she dies. Carolyn Toerpe had her execute a will where once Mary’s home is sold the proceeds are put in Trust and Carolyn Toerpe takes it all upon Mary’s death. Now Carolyn Toerpe has had Mary declared incompetent and is seeking to have both Mary’s home and Gloria’s home sold and the proceeds put in Carolyn’s trust. All of this has been done under the authority of the Probate Court of Cook County and GAL’s Cynthia Farenga Attorney and Adam Stern, Attorney. This proves that evil never sleeps.

Is the new Jim Crow in American’s Law Enforcement with regards to Senior Abuse and Probate abuse

From Ken Ditkowsky–all good questions for Law enforcement to consider and reconsider!

APPEAL TO LAW ENFORCEMENT
JIM CROW IS ALIVE AND WELL
At all times relevant Mary Sykes was a well-adjusted female, aged 90 years old.    In approximately 2005, Mary’s older daughter took her a lawyer.   When they emerged a series of documents surfaced that were deceptive and misleading; however, the intended effect was clear.  The older daughter was to have full and complete control over the mother’s substantial estate.
Unfortunately for the older daughter Mary discovered what had happened to her when she examined her bank account and discovered that $4000 had been removed from her account by the older daughter.     Mary confronted the daughter and was told “mom, I invested your funds in an IRA”      Even Mary knew that at her age she was not eligible to invest in an IRA and after an altercation Mary sought an order of Protection in the Circuit Court.    The Court personnel helped her prepare the verified petition.
The daughter responded with a Petition to have a guardian appointed for Mary Sykes.     Even though Mary’s treating physician refused to sign the ‘doctor’s report’ the Judge advised the older daughter to find another doctor.     An ethically challenged doctor who would attest to both President Obama and President Bush being in need of a plenary guardian – such as the older daughter- was quickly found and he executed the documents.
The Court appointed two guardian ad litem.   These ‘clout’ rich miscreants immediately joined with the older daughter in her quest and they submitted an agreed order to the willing judge who promptly appointed the older daughter as the plenary guardian with authority to separate Mary Sykes from her liberty, property, civil rights and human rights.     The entire story is set forth in the probate file of Mary Sykes housed in the Circuit Court of Cook County 69 W. Randolph Street, Chicago, Illinois.
This saga is repeated every single day in Probate and orphan’s courts across the United States of Illinois.    Alleged abusers and other miscreants are given absolute control over seniors with little or no concern for civil rights, human rights, statutory protections or common decency.    In the Sykes case all the protections afforded by Law have been ignored.   A simple precaution such as naming and serving all the close relatives prior to an incompetency hearing for Mary Sykes was ignored and two years later continues to be ignored.
Just for the record the incompetency hearing provides for standard of proof referred to as ‘clear and convincing.’    The agreement of three interested people to the detriment of the alleged incompetent is disingenuous.     Other protections most of which are jurisdictional have been equally observed by avoidance or just distorting the truth.
One of the easiest ways for a dictator or a criminal to destroy dissent is to have opponent ‘put away’ as crazy, incompetent, etc.        Today, as reported on the Blogs and the Report of the United States Government Accounting office is the rampage of Elder Abuse and Financial Exploitation of the Elderly.    Sheriff Dart (Cook County) sponsored a conference that addressed this serious problem.     The most vicious of these criminal conspiracies is promulgated by the appointment by the Courts of avarice motivated clout heavy individuals who are not burdened by the Judio- Christian Ethic that permeates American Law.    By Court orders, as occurred in the Sykes case, a plenary guardian is appointed (whether the individual needs such assistance of not) and this plenary guardian exercises complete control over the person and property of the victim.
With the aid of a ‘rubber stamp’ Judge, who approves whatever whim and desire of the guardian put before him (the judge) the senior’s liberty and human rights are forfeited.      As long as the money holds out the senior is kept from obtaining his/her final resting place; however, as is indicated in Scott Evan’s affidavit the interim between the guardian’s appointment and final reward may be a living hell!
Lincoln freed the slaves!    You and I by our procrastination have made our senior citizens the new victims of an even more vicious Jim Crow than existed in the 1860’s.       The new Klu Klux Klan headquarters in our probate courts.   A written order signed by judge substitutes for burning a cross or a worn bed sheet.
I urge Law Enforcement and particularly the Sheriff of Cook County and the States Attorney of Cook County to independently and fully investigate the Sykes case   My office will co-operate fully as will friends, neighbors, and family of Mary Sykes.
There are hundreds of people similarly situated who are literally dying for Law Enforcement to investigate the incarceration and looting of their mothers, fathers, brothers et al estates by Court appointed miscreants.    The ‘rape’ of the seniors in the United States is a National disgrace.    The ‘cover up’ is outrageous and a testament to the breakdown of the American culture.    The terrorist threat is from us!    We by our failure to root out the criminals who take advantage of the Justice System to destroy the lifetimes of saving and hard work of our mothers, father’s et al are disingenuous.   Every day that the guardians appointed in the Sykes case continue their nefarious actions is a sad day for every single citizen and another lesson to our children and grandchildren that if you have ‘clout’ it does not matter what the law says.
