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.
As many of you will recall, the defendant in this case was charged with a crime for posting rap music lyrics on his website, which apparently, people at his job, his ex wife and some others claimed were threats against them, because we all know how nice rap music is in terms of threatening messages.
But the US Supreme Court isn’t buying such a standard. The Obama administration and others wanted to use the standard, would a reasonable person feel threatened from harm and present that to the jury.
SCOTUS said the key to these cases is whether or not the speaker intended harm and not the listener. And, to top that off, there would have to be a showing of criminal intent, that is, did the speaker intend to commit the acts constituting a crime.
So while the SCOTUS is making sure that we aren’t dumping even more people in our for-profit jail/prison system for things that really don’t amount to crimes ( publishing lyrics to rap music and having people read them to feel threatened), we have Jerome Larkin and the ARDC going after Mr. Ditkowsky, Mr. Amu and myself for publishing the truth about probate.
Then they ban all the witnesses, many witnesses testify on my behalf, but apparently the Farenga, Stern, Schmeidel team is so tied in, their testimony gets a pass over the dozens of affidavits and actual horror stories from the victims themselves who have suffered on their behalf.
Due tot he Farenga, Stern, Schmeidel team, there was never any discovery in the Sykes case, the Gold coins still have not been found, nor has there been any discovery, Mary wanted to live in her home until she died, but they sold her home for some $200k in attorneys fees–all of which is shameful behavior and all of which Mr. Jerome Larkin, head of the Illinois ARDC wants to cover up. It’s all the truth. The probate courts shy away from opening investigations when they should, they divvy up cases and it’s seniors and disableds for cash.
Barbara Stone’s case is “seniors for cash”– with malicious harm to her mother which was never investigated properly. Her mother is still in grave danger of death from drugs.
Please pray for all of the above persons. I will soon start a prayer page for all the probate victims.
Please pray for Mary G. Sykes that she died in captivity and her Advanced Directives were totally ignored by the Court and Stern, Farenga and Schmeidel at the end.
Just so you all know, Tim Lahrman is a great guy who has help many a probate abuse victim behind the scenes. He is hard working and dedicated.

Of a broken heart.
Thanks for sending this along G****, I really LOVED the story.
here is the link to the full story:
Synopsis of facts:
Benjamin Alfano lived at Raleigh Hills Assisted Living, where he was frequently visited by his granddaughter. He died in February 2011.
Twenty-seven months ago, Probate Judge Cobb dismissed the pleas of Alfano, his four doctors, four of his five children and Cobb’s own court visitor, and awarded control of the veteran’s life to Chris Farley, a professional guardian.
Alfano, a 72-year-old amputee with full benefits, would survive only another six months.
Farley moved the veteran out of the Raleigh Hills Assisted Living facility he loved and eventually into a locked-door dementia-care unit in Gresham, and strenuously isolated him from his children.
Alfano’s heart burst, literally, in February 2011, and he died at the VA Medical Center.
As Judy Bridges, the Raleigh Hills administrator, submitted in an affidavit, “I believe with all my heart that the move killed him.”
Alfano’s death devastated his five children, four of whom retained Portland attorney Michelle Burrows to initiate a federal civil-rights suit against Farley, Pagnano and individuals at ODVA.
Of the $407,000 parked in the account when Farley was appointed guardian in 2010, only $220,000 remains.
And that includes another $44,000 that Alfano received in pension and Social Security before he died.
Where did all the money go?
ODVA “disbursed” $26,784 to Farley and another $27,643 to her attorney, Sibylle Baer.
Pagnano the GAL received $19,022.
D. Kevin Carlson, the assistant attorney general at ODVA, received $25,143.
J. Kevin Shuba — the lawyer representing Alfano’s four children — received $41,560.
But none of those payouts are as galling as Carlson’s suggestion, on behalf of Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum, that Cobb must hold another $120,000 of the estate in reserve to defend ODVA and Farley against a potential federal suit.
Think about that.
Four of Ben Alfano’s children — Mary, Steven, David and Lisa –believe the conservator and guardian made decisions that contributed to their father’s “wrongful and untimely death.”
And Carlson wants to pit what’s left of their father’s estate against them.
None of those children plans to be in Guardianship court.
“She has never listened to anything we’ve said,” Steven Alfano notes.
“And we’re beaten down. Dad is dead. We lost him. And the health toll this has taken on Mary and me, especially, has been huge.”
They have, however, filed an objection.
Further degrading the estate, they argue, “would be both an injustice and simply ethically wrong in any code of conduct.”

***End of Story****
Does this sound familiar? Haunting echoes of the Illinois Probate court?
First please see the links to the fax I just sent to Attys Leah Black and new counsel Scott Kozlov.
Atty Kozlov has just filed an appearance on KD’s ARDC case, so we want to make him immediately aware of the quagmire into which he will step.
And Scott, it’s not too late to call Cynthia Fareng and Adam Stern and tell them to do the right thing and dismiss the Sykes Probate case no. 09 P 4585 before it’s too late for you too.
You are now aware the court is without jurisdiction from prior posts on this blog, in particular please see the “Important Documents” page on this website, and esp. Yolanda’s declaration indicating there is no jurisdiction over Mary Sykes because a Notice of Hearing was not disseminated 14 days prior to the hearing by the petitioner, in writing, to the two adult sisters of Respondent (Yolanda and Josephine) as well as another adult child–Gloria.
Gloria has been victimized in all of this and was (wrongfully) evicted from her home, despite the fact she was a long term care giver.
Be forewarned, the case is wired and apparently it goes high enough to get into the ARDC, the IAG and other offices.
It is only due to this blog and other blogs that are disseminating the information that something is strangely and strongly awry in the Probate Court.
Please join with Ken and I to ask for and obtain, a complete investigation of this case!
thank you for your attention to this matter.
