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

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!

From Lisa Nadig–court bloggers have same 1st Amend. Rights as mega media

http://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/2014/01/20/defamation-bloggers-supreme-court/4658295/

Court ruled that bloggers have First Amendment protection when sued for defamation

259 7LINKEDIN 4COMMENTMORE

GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) — A federal appeals court ruled Friday that bloggers and the public have the same First Amendment protections as journalists when sued for defamation: If the issue is of public concern, plaintiffs have to prove negligence to win damages.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ordered a new trial in a defamation lawsuit brought by an Oregon bankruptcy trustee against a Montana blogger who wrote online that the court-appointed trustee criminally mishandled a bankruptcy case.

The appeals court ruled that the trustee was not a public figure, which could have invoked an even higher standard of showing the writer acted with malice, but the issue was of public concern, so the negligence standard applied.

Gregg Leslie of the Reporters Committee for the Freedom of the Press said the ruling affirms what many have long argued: Standards set by a 1974 U.S. Supreme Court ruling, Gertz v. Robert Welch Inc., apply to everyone, not just journalists.

“It’s not a special right to the news media,” he said. “So it’s a good thing for bloggers and citizen journalists and others.”

Crystal L. Cox, a blogger from Eureka, Mont., now living in Port Townshend, Wash., was sued for defamation by Bend attorney Kevin Padrick and his company, Obsidian Finance Group LLC, after she made posts on several websites she created accusing them of fraud, corruption, money-laundering and other illegal activities. The appeals court noted Padrick and Obsidian were hired by Summit Accommodators to advise them before filing for bankruptcy, and that the U.S. Bankruptcy Court later appointed Padrick trustee in the Chapter 11 case. The court added that Summit had defrauded investors in its real estate operations through a Ponzi scheme.

A jury in 2011 had awarded Padrick and Obsidian $2.5 million.

“Because Cox’s blog post addressed a matter of public concern, even assuming that Gertz is limited to such speech, the district court should have instructed the jury that it could not find Cox liable for defamation unless it found that she acted negligently,” judge Andrew D. Hurwitz wrote. “We hold that liability for a defamatory blog post involving a matter of public concern cannot be imposed without proof of fault and actual damages.”

The appeals court upheld rulings by the District Court that other posts by Cox were constitutionally protected opinion.

Though Cox acted as her own attorney, UCLA law professor Eugene Volokh, who had written an article on the issue, learned of her case and offered to represent her in an appeal. Volokh said such cases usually end up settled without trial, and it was rare for one to reach the federal appeals court level.

“It makes clear that bloggers have the same First Amendment rights as professional journalists,” he said. “There had been similar precedents before concerning advocacy groups, other writers and book authors. This follows a fairly well established chain of precedents. I believe it is the first federal appeals court level ruling that applies to bloggers.”

An attorney for Padrick said in an email that while they were disappointed in the ruling, they noted the court found “there was no dispute that the statements were false and defamatory.”

“Ms. Cox’s false and defamatory statements have caused substantial damage to our clients, and we are evaluating our options with respect to the court’s decision,” wrote Steven M. Wilker.

From Joanne;

 

Now if we can only get the Illinois ARDC to find that attorney bloggers have the same rights to the First Amendment especially when discussing corruption in the courts, there will be finally a win for the State of Illinois.

Jerome Larkin, head of the ARDC does not want that though.  He refused to have the ARDC managing staff and lawyer publish their Ethics Reports under the Illinois Ethics Reporting Act of 2009.  He ran a kangaroo court for myself and Kenneth Ditkowsky when all we did was write hundreds of faxes, letters and blog posts to protest the fact that the Mary G Sykes case was wired, the Judges admitted it in various ways, Judge Stuart lied at my trial when at first she sad she never chained poor Gloria Sykes, the Protective younger daughter, and threaten her pets with euthanization. Eventually, as warned by this blog on May 23, 2015, Mary Sykes, age 95 was narcotized to death and her body has not been tox screened or autopsied, but the Cook County Coroner should do it ASAP.

We now have a list of 30 probate cases across the nation where seniors were subject to “target, isolate, drain the estate, narcotize to eliminate and then creamate (to destroy the witness and evidence”.

Jerome Larking and his staff of ARDC attorneys–Sharon Opryszek, Melissa Smart and Leah Guiterrez Black have all covered up the Mary G. Sykes case and others where seniors have been fleeced and narcotized to death.

Recently Morris Eformes and Son Phillip were indicted for $1 billion in Medicare/Medicaid and state health care fund fraud in Florida.

Jerome Larkin protected Illinois Atty Seth Gillman for TWO YEARS, while he prosecuted myself and Ken Ditkowsky for speaking out against this massive network of health care fraud and probate court fraud in Illinois.

Illinois citizens are demanding better government. We want people who engage in these crimes and cover ups to either be indicted or tested immediately for psychopathy with a PET brain scan and removed and delicensed.

It is psychopaths like these that destroy the very fabric and fiber of civilization leaving Illinois and Chicago and unsafe environment for disableds and senior citizens.

From Ken Ditkowsky–A system with many working parts, working to commit fraud on the public and the disabled and Elderly

The Total Pharmacy/Omnicare venture referred to supra is a look in the LOOKING GLASS. 
The Enron scandal is a parallel to the health care/nursing home situation.   The miscreants are clever and much smarter than most of criminals that the government has to deal with.    The scandal has multi levels:
  1. Political.   Key to the operation of the fraud is an alliance between Establishment political people, judicial people, and the multi-levels of the fraud.   Each locality appears to have a similar structure and very strong tie ins to the dominate political party.
  2. Judicial.   Keeping the facilities occupied and generating money requires tie-ins with corrupt judges and judicial elite.    Here in Illinois we saw how Jerome Larkin and the IARDC react to the call from ‘on high’   Cynthia Farenga saw a post in PROBATE SHARKS calling for an HONEST INVESTIGATION and the miscreants prostituted themselves to attempt to stop the call.  Adam Stern’s job was to call the offending lawyer not part of the scheme and threaten him (myself) with disbarrment.  Judge Connor’s part was to keep the Mary Sykes case wired (she said in a deposition if there were any “problems” with the case, she would dismiss it, start over, and come to the same conclusions and issue the same orders).  Her role was also to make sure Mary went to a “go-to doctor”  to fill out a CCP211 declaration of incompetency.  When she was told the Mary’s personal physician would not sign one, she replied, “find a doctor that will.”  The presiding judges closed their eyes and signed whatever orders were necessary to enhance the wealth of the program.   In the Gore case – no depravity was too low for the judge – even an expedition into the mouth of the elderly ward to get a few grains of gold was acceptable conduct and 29 gold teeth from a 99 year old woman were pulled and a feeding tube inserted against her will because she ate too slowly.   Indeed, the collection of gold from grandmother’s mouth according to Jerome Larkin and his 18 USCA 371 co-conspirators was in the best traditions of the Illinois Bar.
  3. Structural.     The subversion of professionals is old hat and as old as the hills.   Pass a dollar bill under the nose of some professionals and you own his/her for life.    The miscreants are too clever and they no longer need to use dollars – nursing home beds, opportunity to rob an estate, opportunity to be a guardian of an estate and steal, and a horde of sundry payments, mortgages, vacations, opportunities etc

A sheltered care facility has numerous operations.    The facility, for instance purchases pharmaceuticals.     This – Esformes created TOTAL CARE which just happens to have a monopoly on all the facilities drug purchases.

By buying in bulk for the controlled facilities the price is substantially reduced.   Indeed, with the over prescription of drugs by controlled doctors a medium size nursing home has a higher sale volume of these substances than most family pharmacies.   Indeed, the warehousing of the elderly requires keeping the elderly subdued and quiet.   Thus, linking 30 – 300 Esformes controlled facilities together in a buying group is pure money!
Of course, Esformes is too smart to be openly involved in the operation – thus, the operating partner looks around for a youngster, the more naive the better, and he is lured into the position of Chief Operating Officer.    The swelled head augmented by the flattery, large salary, fancy car, etc., makes this recent graduate or cultivated fool perfect.   In the pharmacy one of the dupes dispenses chemicals like corn flakes and if the face that the FDA, IRS, FBI, et al. sees.   The shares of the company (Total) are in nominee names = by and large –
Charity is a big part of the issue.   Everyone contributes.   The contribution is to a duly recognized charity.    The Clinton Tax Return showed a million dollar donation to a Clinton Charity.    The Esformes tax return probably shows a contribution to a Esformes Charity.    Funds are disbursed so as to get the maximum personal benefit.    (I would not be shocked to find out that Donald Trumps disbursement was in a similar manner.) Giving makes certain community operations dependent — (I should not have to explain further)

 

Each operation works essentially the same way, including management, nursing care, linen supply, real estate management, Utilities, professional operations, *****.     Even the billing is outsourced to a related entity which is independently controlled by Esformes Or some other mogul.   These operations even have independent offices and in many of the situations the CEO or person designated to go to jail is a total stranger to the group.     An O’Reilly being the CEO of an Esformes- Enron style corporation is not an anomoly.

The indictment of Philip Esformes found at www.justice.gove/opa/file87o8306/download will give you an idea of what the government investigation has uncovered to date.

I ran across an early version of this scenario in the BURT MORGAN CASE.

Understanding what is psychologically happening when the guardianship (or other court proceeding) turns abusive and not justice–the psychopatic courtroom and judge

I strongly recommend that if you are a probate victim or family member you understand what a psychopath/narcissist/sociopath is and how they think.

The above link will take you to a National Geographic documentary on psychopathy and how they think and operate and why you are more likely today to find them in a modern corporation or boardroom or even the court room.  They are drawn only to riches, wealth, the need to control and deceive others. They have depressed emotions in the area of sympathy, empathy, understanding and compassion.  They will never love, and will make excuses for love.  They are calmest when they are told of violence, cruelty, torture and pain. Then they can focus and plot and plan their next move to win, to control to conquer and most of all, attain riches and prestiege.  This is the modus operandi of the psychopath/narcissist/sociopath (“PNS”).

One of the big problems I have with my probate victims is 1) they don’t think like the attorney and judge psychopaths they may encounter in the courtroom and 2) they don’t prepare themselves to confront insidious evil.  I’m not saying all judges and attorneys are insidious evil, what I am saying is that courtroom victims of bullying and abuse have to understand the nature and thinking of the psychopaths they may encounter there.  That is the hardest part.  (Note that judges and attorneys that are not of the PSN mindset genuinely care about you, read all pleadings, follow the law, make careful and reasoned decisions supported well by the statutes, rules and caselaw.  Beware of the judge that ignores all of that because you may have a judge with PNS.  The courts have been supplied with many, many good judges that will  care about you and your case, it’s just that some do have PNS problems and when that happens, watch out. They also will attract and surround themselves with court appointed attorneys and agencies of the same character.)

When you have been raised with some source of goodness, kindness, love and compassion, and are a good person to the core, you will never understand the PNS mindset–unless well trained and warned.  A great deal of time is wasted on trying to understand or analyze it or even fix it.  It’s not fixable.  Don’t go there.  Your only job is to recognize it and contain it, keep yourself away from it.  Not in your inbox or in your life.  You don’t have to be mean or cruel, just limit the involvement to what is absolutely necessary.

Once you are done with the National Geographic video, move on to the following:

and then next this video

If it takes you awhile to get thru these videos because you have to take breaks, don’t worry, I did too.  It’s hard for me to think that there are such evil predators out there and listen to the horrid things that PNS predators say.

The psychD’s (same people that guardianize people) claim that CEO’s are no. 1 in being psychopaths and I think they named lawyers as no. 2.  I think it’s time to challeng the ABA and all state bar associations to test their colleges and boot out the PNS ones.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3265029/Outrage-female-judge-berates-JAILS-sobbing-domestic-abuse-victim-failing-appear-court-trial-attacker.html

After seeing the above and seeing how psychopaths work and all their traits, please view the above and compare with YOUR judge.  Once you do that, you will no longer wonder why your judge is 1) ignoring the law and case law; 2) talks a good story, pretends well, but really has no interest in you, truth or justice; and 3) is just handling the courtroom as an administrator of the worst sort–sticking to deadlines, reading the rules and construing them carefully against YOU and never doing any sort of substantial justice, just garnering favors, frienemies and power and prestiege.

JMHO.

Please note that one commentator said he thought that psychopaths are not a problem and are to be lauded for their “modern thinking”.  For sure, he needs to look in the mirror because he is his own worst enemy

PS–Jerome Larkin has never responded to anyone’s call that he and his sometimes “state agency” file Ethics Reports under the Illinois Ethics Reporting Act.  I guess that makes him a great CEO of the ARDC, but in the end, his ideas fail miserably because he is harming the public which the ARDC should be protecting.

From Eliot Bernstein on the importance of Personal Jurisdiction

Treason Ruling
“We (judges) have no more right to decline the exercise of jurisdiction which is given, than to usurp that which is not given. The one or the other would be treason to the Constitution.” –Cohens v. Virginia, (1821), 6 Wheat. 264 and U.S. v. Will, 449 U.S. 200.

From: kenneth ditkowsky [mailto:kenditkowsky@yahoo.com]

Many of the acts complained of by Jerome Larkin, head of the Ill. Atty and Discipline Comm, Sharon Opryszek, Leah Black Guiterrez and Stephen Splitt, senior litigators there do not consider what they do treasonous (dismissing scores of valid consumer complaints regarding corruption in the courts–situations of fraud, conversion, theft (civil) embezzlement (civil) and other tortious actions) because they will not go after clouted attorneys (Peter Schmeidel, Deborah Jo Soehlig, Cynthia Farenga, Adam Stern (Sykes case, et. al) CP, TR (Al Frake case for knowingly drugging him and using chemical restraints on him, selling his home when he wants to go home, etc.) Lyle Harrison (for allowing Judges Flannel and Broach to imprison him for 7 months, his brother Andrew for 2 months and their past brother Pastor Roger for 2 weeks merely for filing counter claims, while pretending it was something else (UPL) and thus violating their civil rights.

These victims and others consider these to be highly treasonous acts (not upholding the US and Illinois constitutions, watching others commit a string of felonies against innocent citizens and doing nothing.  Then actively participating in trials to deny myself and Ken Ditkowsky our Constitutional rights (US and Illinois) to warn the public of this behavior soon as it occurs.

Now we are right.  Mary Sykes was just narcotized to death on May 23, 2015 and dumped in a grave without a funeral but with quick embalmning soon as the money ran out ($5,000)

Someone came to me yesterday and said that he worked in a nursing home to pay his way thru college and everytime the family could not pay, everytime the govt shut off checks, the staff were told by accounting to narcotize the senior!

How many times does this go on each and every day.

We need a federal law that once a senior has no assets, that they be given no narcotics, place in no hospice until reviewed by a hospital committee that the act is not in fact murder.

(This contrasts with Europe where a couple of countries in a T4 Hitler like style have passed involuntary euthanasia bills).

The murder of our seniors and disables is nothing but murder. Those who participate or, worst yet, cover up (Larkin, Opryszek, Smart, Splitt, Sykes case attys, Drabik case attys, Tyler case attys, Al Frake Attys (attempted murder), etc. may also be found guilty of treason and conspiracy 42 USC sec 371)

What they are all thinking, I don’t understand.

Ken and I were right about the Sykes case. Mary is gone, having been murdered soon as the money ran out.  About $150,000 went to attorneys fees.  $200,000 of Gloria’s money was stolen for attorneys fees.  Another $90,000 went to nursing home fees–a place Mary specified in her advance directives she did not want.  This was judges Connors, Stuart and MacCarthy.

Ken and I were right.  Mary would be murdered when the money ran out and her estate would go to attorneys fees and a nursing home.  NOT for anything she wanted in her estate plan.  That was tossed aside by a greedy guardian and her greedy attorneys and the judges that act in concern with them.

MacCarthy went storming down the halls screaming at Gloria she wanted to jail her merely because Gloria brought her service dog to court.  He is trained to bark as a last resort when stress levels indicate lasting damage to Gloria.  MacCarthy has just denied Gloria’s ADA request for accommodation to Gloria and her mother and her Service dog and did so in a nasty and wrongful manner.  Why is this woman still judge?

The blood of Mary is now on the hands of Larkin, Opryszek, (not so) Smart, Splitt, Guiterrez. We warned them.  How could anyone kill or endanger a 95 year old widow?

It is time for Larkin to go to the Illinois Supreme Court, apologize to myself and Ken and drop and withdraw all the charges.

Otherwise, a serious evil and corruption permates our probate hallways.

Breaking news! SCOI refuses to intervene in my/our case regarding the ARDC and this blog!

Dear Readers;

On Sunday, for some reason, both Ken and myself were in the office and what did we each receive?  A notice from the SCOI (Supreme Ct of Illinois) that they had dismissed our petition for a supvervisory order.

Well, being the eternal optimist, I hope that SCOI might promulgate a new rule that attys 1) are allowed to blog; and 2) blogging regarding content based (non commercial) speech will be afforded the greatest and widest protection; and 3) commercial speech where lawyers claim only victories and no losses will require only one disclaimer on the front page “results not typical, consult a lawyer for greater details on your particular case.”

I talked to KDD, and he says we should just wait and see.  But I already have my Summary Judgment Motion file for when the ARDC allows dispositive motions (for some reason the ARDC rules are backwards.  In the rest of the nation’s courts, dispositive motions only have a deadline so they don’t interfere with the work load required for trial prep, and further they are welcome even at an early stage of the proceeding.  The rule was recently changed coincidentially when KDD started filing a number of dispostive motions in his case.  I’m just noticing.  I’m just saying.)

While my case was dismissed at SCOI, I hope they will take a long, hard look at blogs, esp. those that want to stop and root out corruption in the courts at all levels–and give us some well needed protection.

I still can’t get a copy of KDD’s transcript from his 2 day hearing were allegedly his hearing panel found him guilty of “misconduct” (but nothing official yet), and all for just writing one letter to Mary’s doctor Patel and on the reasonable belief 1) that the court lacked jurisdiction because Mary and the sisters were never properly served and 2) the younger daughter held a valid POA of atty granting her the right to allow KDD to ask for this information.  The rest of the accusations against KDD were for merely calling for an investigation–clearly protected by the US and Illinois constitutions.

Let’s hope that the SCOI will DO THE RIGHT THING and issue some good rules protecting attorneys — an especially those that protect attorneys that speak out against corruption in the Illinois court system and

Subject: Re: TRO — Sykes

 Unless I missing something very basic we have a scenario that has been approved that is very un-american  –  i.e. the Courts have abdicated to a small group of individuals their jurisdiction.   These people are allowed to seize the property and the liberty of any senior citizen they desire.    If any friend, relative, or other person intervenes that person is also stripped of his/her rights as an American citizen.   All statutory and constitutional protections are forfeit!    If that person happens to be a lawyer – disbarment or other disciplinary proceedings are commenced.
It is apparent that if Nasga, probate sharks and all the other groups seeking to protect elderly and disabled persons from being explited and/or abused by “judicial officials” and their cronies do not get together and seek an immediate remedy everyone will be ‘fair game.’
The Illinois Legislature has decreed that it is jurisdictional to require notice to be given to new (close) relatives before an individual can be guardianized.    The Courts of last resort in the State of Illinois have ruled that it is indeed jurisdictional however, Mary Sykes for 3 1/2 years has been denied her property, her liberty and her civil rights.  Gloria Sykes cannot even obtain the protections of the Bankruptcy Court, and when she is beaten up by the guardian’s husband and files a criminal complaint she is told to bring the matter to the probate court!
Ok – my friends – this is the Warsaw ghetto all over again!    It is also Birmingham and Bull Connor!  The distinction is that they pick us off one at time rather than in group, but it is just as insidious.
The fact that the victims are chosen not because of their religion or the race is not an exculpation.   The fact that we are not inclined to take up arms is not an exculpation.    The fact that we appeal to chorus and are all talk and no action is an exculpation and empowers those who would and are separating us from our basic American Rights.
I purpose that the leaders of NASGA, Probate Sharks, et al set a time and place for a meeting which we can be Syked (or whatever) and we can prepare action.   Our opinions are:1)  The ballot box is a weapon against the miscreants and those who support them.   2) The Courts are an escape value which have been reluctant to protect ‘senior citizens’ and their friends who are being victimized, but, they have to be addressed. 3) force of numbers.  Every one is a potential victim.   Senator Kirk – who suffered a stroke and is now recovering will face opposition in the next election  –  he is vulnerable to the miscreants.   If we can get him to examine the Sykes case if he is 1/2 the man I believe him to be he will have empathy and recognize – like each of us does – there but for the grace of God there go I.
(Of course if I was the guardian and I did not inventory a million dollars in assets you can bet your bottom dollar that the IRS would have filed a jeopardy assessment against me.    If I was responsible for an old lady’s teeth being removed and her estate being reduced by a 1.5 million dollars I would see so much of the States attorney investigators that my neighbors would be gossiping that I was having an affair with her etc.   however – with the Clout no one is interested!)
Right now the exploiters and abusers recognize that they have the ‘clout’ and we are all talk.   It is time that we are a group fight back.
The first step is to meet, the second step is to organize, the third step is to articulate the issues, the fourth step is to determine which issues are most important, the fifth step is to reach an agreement as to how to address the issues, the sixth step is determine the costs of addressing the issues and raising the funds, and the seventh step is to actually do what we say we are going to do.

Where is Ken Ditkowsky’s Transcript? An inquiring public wants to know!

Dear Readers;

One of the things which you all know is going on is my Petition (via KKD) to the Supreme Court of Illinois asking for a supervisory order that lawyers can freely blog about corruption in the Illinois court system without interference from the ARDC which somehow finds the subject embarrassing, denigrating, that it brings “disrepute” onto the judges, lawyers and court system that engage in it with impunity.  They are permanently on the “free parking” monopoly space of the Daley center monopoly game.

All the while, the probate blogs have gone mad for years reporting story after story of corruption, theft, embezzlement, uninventoried assets–even murder and all the while looking the other way,

The chasm between the two worlds has to be the width of the average black hole in space.  The length of the Milky Way, half way to infinity.  But I digress into engineering, my first love.

I grew up believing in first amendment rights.  My mother regularly wrote the newspapers regarding any injustices she found in the world and supported them with historical information. She taught me from a very young age that slavery was wrong, equal rights for women and persons of color was right and correct, and there were many, many injustices to fight in a world of corruption and negativity.  Of course, we lived in Chicago–a regular hotbed of injustices to fight.  She was very busy, either reading or writing.  Getting published in the editorial section of the SunTimes was a highlight of her day.

And then along came Greylord and the issues in our Illinois courts were far from over.

And when I first walked into a juvenile court in Illinois and onto the 18th floor of the Daley center, I have to admit, I was quite shocked by the fact that a juvenile client I was representing was told I could not represent her because juvenile attys came “from a list.”  I provided them with US Supreme court caselaw on that and got an apology.  Then, in probate I found my first transcript either “had disappeared”, then it “was lost”, then it was “stolen”.  I asked the court reporter for the police report and all I got was silence.  I talked to the supervisor and he told me that was impossible, because they were kept safely under lock and key so that could not happen.  So I asked him for this transcript.  A few days later I got an apology, but he would not be getting back to me for some time soon–and it was already 3 months after the hearing date!  I never did get that transcript.  After a call and fax to the state’s attorney and US attorney, suddenly the case went away.  Just showed up in court one day and the judge told me she had reconsidered and all was fine.  Imagine that.

So, maybe I’m suspicious.  Atty Ditkowsky has respectfully asked the ARDC for his transcript after his infamous hearing in which I was not only dismissed from the proceeding (I believe it was a set up by Atty Stern and for blogging) and KDD assures me that at numerous times he “wrapped himself in flag” (metaphorically speaking), and provided an eloquent speech on how first amendment rights were assured the public, and even lawyers, and especially lawyers asking for an investigation where families had reported open and obvious court corruption or a wide divergence from rules of law, statues and procedure.

He assures me that he was asked the incredulous question “are you repentant for repeatedly calling for an investigation from the authorities?”  He assures me he answered “certainly not.”

As an US citizen, I want to see that transcript.  I want to publish and frame that answer.

I was once asked if I was repentant about this blog and would I stop (by a reporter).  I replied “certainly not, and I will not stop the blog or be shut up until I stop hearing (verifiable) stories of corruption in the (Illinois) court system.”  This quote (although she got it backwards at first), has been published perhaps a 100 or more times around the internet.

Just recently I asked Attys Jessica Haspel and Sharon Opryszek at the ARDC for the transcript from KDD’s September 2012 hearing.

Silence.

But they did manage to get the transcript of the disqualification of my attorney and confidant and dear friend Atty Kenneth Ditkowsky to the Supreme Court of Illinois tout d’suite! I believe it was 2 or 3 weeks.

How is it that some transcripts appear right away whereas others (this one from Sept of 2012)  the ARDC won’t reply and  doesn’t even have a speck on the horizon 6 months later?

Isn’t the ARDC embarrassed by all of this?  I mean, a continuing theme on the blog is that you have to bring your own court reporter to a probate proceeding because you can’t trust the official court reporters on the 9th floor of the Daley Center who lose, alter, destroy, disappear, claim the transcript ended at X, when you know a few minutes later Y is chock full of all sorts of stuff the court shouldn’t have done– or whatever it is they do with transcripts.  (And if the ARDC doubts me on this, I have my own story and about half a dozen more regarding this.  Oh, I know I will post all the declarations and affidavits on my blog so they can prepare yet another complaint about this alleging, once again, that I lied, and they didn’t, and they can’t be bothered to read all the affidavits and declarations on this blog).  I get that.  It’s embarrassing and inexplicable.

So here’s another greasy mud ball at the ARDC.  If you guys can manage to get the transcript of Ken’s (bogus) disqualification in my ARDC case sent off to the ARDC promptly and within 2 or 3 weeks, then just where is Ken’s transcript 6 months later.

He asked you for it.  I asked you for it for my case.  I know Ken is an eloquent speaker on human rights, civil rights, property rights, preventing the loss of these via a corrupt court system (oops! said that again).

So, the transcripts the ARDC wants get out right away (and I have to tell you and I will publish it), I don’t think this one helps their case, I do believe they have sniffed a few too many meth lab fumes or whatever they do just before they ordered and sent that one to SCOI, but the ones Ken and I want are long, long delayed.

Well, were they lost, destroyed, stolen without a police report, did you ask the court reporter to stop recording as soon as Ken spoke or what?

You guys can do this.  Explain away.  I’ve heard them all from the 9th floor.  Many probate victims have reported even more colorful tales from the 9th floor.  I would LOVE to hear the excuse.  I bet Ken’s transcript was lost, stolen, the dog ate it, the cat peed on it, the court reporter got drunk and passed out, — I don’t know. What new excuse can they come up with?

The citizens of Illinois are waiting for this one.

And sorry about the blog.  It’s one of those annoying things about the First Amendment. People just tend to publish all the stuff you just don’t want to hear, and especially when you ordered a copier with CYA, office space with CYA, a rug with CYA, a new filing system with CYA, and still, the darned stuff leaks out when people, esp. lawyers start asking questions.

And you know you want to get a gag order.  You want to silence us.  You want us to put our tail between our legs and creep away.

John Wyman called me today and read to me a blog comment where a lawyer said “good for you, I would do that, but I want to keep my (good paying job).

Well, I got some news for that lawyer.  Go take out a loan and buy a back bone.  Go get some cajones or ova or whatever it is that will get you to the side of justice and honesty.

Again, for the attorneys at the ARDC, Atty Larkin, Atty Smart and Atty Ospryszek:  DO THE RIGHT THING AND DISMISS THE COMPLAINTS AGAINST MYSELF AND KEN.

For Attorneys Stern and Farenga, DO THE RIGHT THING AND NONSUIT/DISMISS the Sykes Probate!

For Atty Sharon Rudy and Kim Timmerwilke McKenzie, DO THE RIGHT THING AND DISMISS/NONSUIT the Wyman Case!

There is no ultimate glory, laud or honor prosecuting and persecuting honest and ethical attorneys such as KDD and myself.

Quit your jobs.  Come work for and with me as we clean up the courts in Probate and Illinois.  I may be broke, I might not have food, heat or whatever, but I do what is right.  I listen to the probate victims and I promise to help them without money up front and everything based upon faith and good intentions.
