From Ken Ditkowsky–Suspending honest attorneys for years and jailing Pastors–another day in Illinois, a top corrupt state

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

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

Let the record be clear – it is intended that a non-answer to this e-mail should be deemed an admission that the acts referred to in the ABA article attached to prior e-mails as exhibit 1 were intentional and deliberate.
Ken Ditkowsky
Please publish the following and get as wide distribution of this Call of Arms as possible.  The article in the ABA journal (exhibit 1) is so repugnant that if we wish to retain our democracy we have to start a ground swell of protest.   Benign neglect is not an option when the core value of America is being threatened by the legal profession and a bunch of corrupt jurists:
Days of Shame
For years the learned profession of the law has come to enjoy ridicule and slander.    What do you call it when a bus load of lawyers crashes off a bridge into the Mississippi River and all are killed?    The answer:  “a good start!”        Metaphors for lawyers are not flattering and you can expect at every gathering someone is going to make a remark that suggests lawyers are dishonest, amoral, and the cause of everything bad in society.      As a lawyer it is always amusing to have one of the most vociferous and obnoxious of the lawyer baiters a day or so later come into my office asking for my help in resolving some legal problem that requires not only discretion but knowledge of facts that my client would blush if he had to disclose to his wife.
That was before I stumbled into the ‘elder cleansing’ scandal and the War on the Elderly and the Disabled.     Prior to that time the lawyers that I dealt with by in large were honest, decent, well read and nice people.     Most lawyers were people who I could take at their word and trust with my deepest confidence.     The relationships were mutual.     The parasites that I ran into in the Mary Sykes case 09 P 4585 were a breed apart.      The worst ‘scum’ were a step up from these lawyers and had much more integrity.      A casual brush with one or more of them in a hallway in the Daley Center made my skin crawl and activated a need for a bath in lye soap.    
I had heard of such lawyers but except for Ms. ***** I had never had contact with any.      Exactly how I was so sheltered is a mystery, but most members of the profession (including the most irritating) were people I was not ashamed of.     That is, until yesterday, when the ABA published the article on JoAnne Denison’s suspension, and did not express outrage and a demand for the immediately impeachment of the offending jurists and all who acted in concert to assault the First Amendment.    The article is attached hereto and made part hereof as exhibit 1.
The Legal profession has on occasion not covered itself with glory.     The case of the Dred Scott decision the Supreme Court failed to meet its responsibility and stand up for core principals of America – Liberty and Justice.   Again in Buck vs Bell the Court failed to recognize the concept of Equal before the Law.    (This case was the legal justification for the Holocaust.)  In the JoAnn Denison case the America Bar Association and the organized Bar looked the other way as corrupt Illinois jurists rubber=stamped a ‘cover up’ orchestrated by outrageously corrupt lawyer disciplinarians who were openly and notoriously protecting criminals with law licenses who were ravaging the hard earned savings of the elderly and disabled.     In the Denison case the ‘booty’ being protected included but was not limited to a million dollars in gold coins (Sykes) and eighty pounds of silver coins (Gore).     Her blog also referred to large land thefts and the eight million dollar Tyler estate all of which were being covered up.     Most seriously, she was threatening the ‘grab’ of Mary Sykes’ million dollar home (including land) and disclosing the details of the tax evasion scheme that was essential to elder cleansing of Mary Sykes.  
The Bar Association with all this information at hand, reported the assault on First Amendment and the Bill of Rights by high ranking judicial criminals as if Denison had been admonished for eating one chocolate cookie too many.     There was no outrage, no call for an investigation (Honest or otherwise), and certainly not even a protest.    What there was however the editing and cutoff of outrage that citizens expressed when they heard that the Judiciary had abdicated its responsibility and was protecting overt criminal activity?
It is no wonder that the public feels that a bus populated with lawyers falling off a bridge and killing all on board is a “good start!”     Indeed, in all candor, lawyers take an oath to defend the Constitution.    The Denison decision demonstrates that even though we require our ‘pre=teens’ to have knowledge of the Constitution prior to entering high school, we apparently do not require our lawyers to have knowledge of the document when charging $500 a hour to honest citizens for legal services.
The lawyers involved in the Denison case (including the Supreme Court justices) have demonstrated ‘contempt for the Rule of Law’ and those who attorn to such action are in breach of their oath.    Such individuals are a cancer and enemies of our democracy.       There is no excuse for any lawyer being a party to an assault on the basic and core values of American democracy and in particular the Bill of Rights.     The racism that the Illinois Disciplinary Commission (IARDC) and its administrator orchestrated in the Amu case (and against Diane Nash) is not an anomaly – it is a commonplace staple.    In most situations it is an undercurrent, but Jerome Larkin and his 18 USCA 242 co-conspirators are not ashamed of their conduct – they published in the Lanre Amu case that attorneys with a dark skin who complain concerning corruption are not welcome in Illinois to practice law.
While the Illinois Supreme Court has ruled that it is unethical (sans Rule 8.3 and 18 USCA 4) for lawyers to voice a call for an HONEST investigation once again I, and a large group of lawyers who are afraid to voice opposition to the criminal element of our profession, call for an HONEST investigation, and if wrongdoing is found for the most vigorous prosecution of the miscreants.     This is our call for a War Crimes trial of Jerome Larkin and his 18 USCA 371, 18 USCA 242 co-conspirators.    Justice Jackson is deceased.   But I am certain we can find another advocate for the concept of decency, honor, and integrity by public officials.
Exhibit 1:
Lawyer gets suspension for blog posts about ‘feeding frenzy’ of connected lawyers
POSTED SEP 24, 2015 12:46 PM CDT

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

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

From Ken Ditkowsky–America must return to its Core Values

I am proud to stand with you, and am proud to use my own name and likeness in advocating for a return to a justice system that we can be proud of and a rebirth of the ‘core’ values of America.      I have no intention of allowing anyone to deprive you, me, or any other citizen, including those who are elderly and/or disabled of our Constitutional Rights and liberties.     Indeed, it may not be politically correct to stand up and be counted when the elite political figures have determined that x or y is not on the approved list, but, if we intend to preserve the America that our forefathers gave us = and fought and died for – we have no choice.
It may be a racist thought to call a public official appointed by the dominant political party a racist because he bars an icon of the Civil Rights movement from an open hearing, and/or complains to the Supreme Court that a lawyer who has a dark hue to his skin is a ‘clear and present’ danger to public safety because he objects to a ‘white’ corrupt jurist.   The fact is the public official is the very model of a modern racist whether he has the seal of approval or not and his conduct is so reprehensible that seal of approval or not – he should be removed from all public funded programs.      Those who act in concert with him should also be removed.   (Yes, I am talking about Jerome Larkin and his lynch mob!)        Until the IARDC reverses it actions in regard to Attorney Amu and makes amends to Diane Nash they will not be able to sweep their perfidy under the rug.
America is a Nation of Laws.    We have a system in which we have sovereign States that are united in a Common Union.    Each state yielded to the Federal Government a portion of its sovereignty in an effort to better protect Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.   (These are the words the ‘compact’ uses).    To better protect the rights of individuals the First Ten Amendments to the Constitution were enacted (Bill of Rights).     Every State has as part of its Constitution a similar statement of core values.   In Illinois it is Article 1 of our Constitution.     The law and the Constitution apply to everyone including those persons who are old, infirm, disabled, and/or targeted by the political and judicial elite for isolation, abuse, exploitation, and finally involuntary assisted suicide.     The law also prohibits the politically ‘gifted’ from exercising their ‘clout!’       Mr. Larkin and those people he acts in concert with may have temporary immunity from the laws of the United States of America – but our job (and the job of all good citizens) is to induce law enforcement to bestow upon all the miscreants a healthy respect of Law and Order.     Quashing their avarice is a prime quest!
We have a smorgasbord of relevant and enforceable laws that are designed to protect you and me and all the other citizens including the elderly and the disabled.    The fact that miscreants such as Larkin and those he acts in concert with him have thwarted the application of these laws does not mean that they are not viable and/or are unenforceable.    They are!     For instances 320 ILCS 20/4 gives immunity to persons who report matters such as occurred in the Sykes and Gore cases from prosecution including disciplinary Actions.    735 ILCS 110/5 is a legislative statement that deplores exactly the actions that the Sykes and IARDC co-conspirators have taken.    The guardianship act 755 ILCS 5/11a – 1 et seq, and in particular 3b, and 10 make it very clear that situations like Sykes, Gore, et al cannot and should not occur.      On the Federal level 42 USCA 1983, 18 USCA 241, 242, 18 USCA 4, 18 USCA 375, 47 USCA 230 **** again outlaw the conduct of the miscreants and the IARDC.
Yes, the law is thwarted over and over again and the miscreants are handsomely paid with public money for their infamy.     Yes, the miscreants are wrongfully protected by the Courts, court agencies, law enforcement, elected officials and others in authority way too often.     Yes, government funds are used to support the miscreant’s War on the Elderly and the Disabled and yes it appears that government is ignoring one pernicious and unconscionable act after another.     Some of us think that our government is rotten to the core and we are surrounded by such corruption that the quest for honor, honesty and fair play is hopeless.     Many more of look at the scenario and believe that the situation is less extreme and given the right combination of events success in defeating the advocates of elder genocide is possible.         I am proud to be in the latter group and to lend my name to the efforts to act within the law to bring Jerome Larkin ***** and all who act in concert with him, including, the public officials in Florida, Ohio, California, **** who have made growing old a dangerous situation to Justice.
Previously on many occasions I have as a citizen demanded that law enforcement do an HONEST investigation of the entire elder cleansing scandal.      I’ve said (and meant it) – take nothing for granted, do not believe me or anyone else.   Examine the facts yourself.     If you find that the facts are as I am others have claimed, then bring the miscreants and all of them before the Bar of Justice.
Yes, I am aware that  Attorney Denison, Attorney Amu, ***** and I have all been prosecuted by the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary commission and the Supreme Court of Illinois has found that this call for an HONEST investigation of the genocide, abuse, and exploitation of the elderly is so unethical that long multi=year suspensions are appropriate.       Yes, I am aware that a lawyer who has little clout who actually abuses or exploits the elderly and the disabled (and breaches his fiduciary relationship) is not considered a threat to the public safety and if punished at all get a slap on the wrist.
In my half century in the practice of law I’ve recognized corruption in the judiciary of Cook County, Illinois and have fought it when it arose to threaten the rights of my clients.      I dealt with some of the jurists who when to jail and/or had to resign because of the Operation Greylord scandal and I death with some of the jurists who escaped punishment.     I am coping with the corrupt jurists, judicial officials’ et al who are engaged in the current scandal and I will continue to fight under my own name and stead to address this corruption.    Certain First principles still prevail.
1)      American Democracy depends on an HONEST and independent judiciary.     What this means is that the trier of fact has to be not only knowledgeable, but willing to apply the facts to the law even if it is not politically correct.     Thus, if a Dred Scott decision were to come before the Court we are looking for a judge to stand up and say that the word “All” means all.    All includes people of color, people who are infirm, people who are old, people who are in our jurisdiction by accident etc.     This also means that we want a judge who is not afraid to disagree with both you and me and the very same time.     In addition we want a judge who will be so independent as to blaze a new trail if it is warranted by the facts and the law.
It should be noted that we have to first address issues of justice in the ‘lower courts’ as the Appellate process is limited and only in exceptional circumstances can one Court ‘second guess’ another.     The rationale is to obtain an independent, honest and knowledgeable decision the litigants are going to have to accept some decisions that they feel are wrong.      We want an honest judiciary and this means that some of the HONEST decisions will go against our position and have to be accepted by us.
In a perfect world there are no Judge Connors, Judge Stuarts, or similar judges who would overlook that lack of compliance with due process and the jurisdictional statutory compliances that occurred in the Mary Sykes case.      In a perfect world no judge would ever have allowed the miscreants to prospect for Gold in the mouth of a 90 year old citizen.
Even the Court order of a corrupt jurist means something.       When Judge Connors In the Mary Sykes case 09 P 4585  (Cook County) knowing she had no jurisdiction – because of the patent fact that 755 ILCS 5/11a – 10 had been intentionally violated by the two guardian ad litem, the guardian and her respective attorneys in every way possible including obviating a hearing, service of summons, service of prior notice, denial of representation  entered an order finding Mary Sykes so incompetent to have every right and privilege forfeited that order was entitled to full faith and credit until it as properly addressed.     That order even though entered without the required hearing was still meaningful.      Yes, it was an inexcusable breach of the Judge’s duties and obligations, but, it was a governmental act.
It is also inexcusable that almost a decade has gone by and Law enforcement has allowed the miscreants to not only get away with their perfidy, but, they continue to ignore the law and reap the benefits of their disrespect for America’s core privilege.     So obscene is the scenario that  Larkin, the two guardians, the guardian, the attorney for the guardian and all who act in concert with them are even given immunity from paying the income taxes that all of the rest of us peons have to pay.      Watch the government allow Mary’s million dollar home (which was sold a judicial sale for a fraction of its value to a crony of the miscreants) be sold at capital gains rates by the thieves.        Watch as no one in government gets excited that another million dollars was stolen by Court appointed fiduciaries from a senior citizen and the appropriate taxes were never paid!     Then turn on the television and listen to the political sponsors of this modern terrorism decry the need for more taxes to be assessed against the public to pay for this very type of government.     No mention will be made that Larkin and his co-conspirators should have contributed as fair share of the deficit, if any.
2)      It takes strength of character to stand up to government and disciplinary commissions that have the power to take away law licenses.      It is no secret that Gloria Sykes employed a score of attorneys, and except for JoAnne Denison and myself every one of the attorneys has run to hide in the woods when the co-conspirators have called to threaten them.     One even turned on her to save his own skin and *****.       Pursuant to Attorney Rule 8.3 I have pointed out that Jerome Larkin, as his overt act in support of the Conspiracy of elder cleansing, has misused his office to attempt to silence both JoAnne and myself.     The Cynthia Farenga letter attaching the copy of the Probate Sharks blog (publishing the demand for an Honest investigation) is stark evidence of the unholy relationship between the miscreant lawyers, corrupt jurists, corrupt judicial officials and corrupt public officials.
3)        The money that is out there to thwart any attempt to rid the system of corruption is just short of incredible.      The tie in to the corrupt health care industry and its huge clout with the political community is a real force and can literally destroy careers.      Few political people will risk such an event.     The industry has major money to invest in candidates, reward its friends, and punish its enemies.   The 700 percent fraud sur charge that the industry charges all health care patients and payers funds a massive violation of civil rights.      I observed in the Brewer case how the nursing homes literally elected an alderman in Chicago.     The most qualified candidate had absolutely no chance even when he hired the most prestigious and most effective election helpers.       It did not even matter that the incumbent was unpopular and polls indicated little support beyond the party faithful.    Indeed,  No one was and is interested.   During the last election nursing homes transported their wards to polling places and made certain that each resident cast his/her vote for the “correct candidate.       Early voting, motor voting, absentee voting, and non-ID voting make certain that the nursing home operator (member of the cabal) can deliver the votes to the candidate of his choice.
The money was readily available to payoff all the opposition and anyone who might make a difference.    What is  very troubling is the fact that much of money is paid directly by the government to the miscreants.
The proceeds that we receive are meager.    The gratitude is microscopic.       The success is fleeting, but, it is labor of love to get the word out and for me to every day I write an “essay” that alerts others to the issues and tries to raise the questions that must be asked’      I could not induce Jerome Larkin to apologize to an Icon of the Civil Rights movement (Diane Nash) for what appeared to be his intentional violation of her civil rights. (He refused her admittance to a public proceeding!)      My personal failure is magnified as not a single media publication even mentioned the fact that a famous icon of the Civil Rights movement and promulgator of the Selma and Washington civil Rights movement was denied entry into a public hearing by Jerome Larkin.   Such is frustrating but it does give me another legitimate complaint that one day I hope will be recognized for what it is, to wit:     A repudiation of the Equal Rights doctrine by the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission and a clear and unequivocal statement of their rejection of the very oath that each attorney accepting employment as an attorney has taken.
I urge the near bankrupt governments to collect the income taxes legitimately due by each and every member of the conspiracy against the elderly and the disabled.      As the fiscal problems become more and more intense it is my hope that our government will govern with an eye toward EQUALITY BEFORE THE LAW and not give special dispensations to the miscreants with clout who are preying on our elderly and disabled.   A good start would be to    MAKE JEROME LARKIN pay his Federal and State Income taxes in the same manner that government makes John and Mary Doe pay their taxes!
