Families demand probate reform


by Athena Roe, J.D.

“If we desire respect for the law, we must first make the law respectable.”

–The Honorable Louis D. Brandeis

The dangers facing a largely unsuspecting public looms large as families find their assets and civil liberties being high jacked and trampled by the legal industry via probate courts. Historically probate courts were specialized courts that handled the administration of estates, ensuring that the decedent’s wishes were carried out.Athena-Roe-photo

Today, probate courts have become venues for instant liquidation of assets, pillaging, legal abuse and other atrocities. Probate lawyers work with banks and realtors and are quick to jump in the game. Beneficiaries are denied due process rights and are threatened and harassed as their inheritance is depleted.

All too often there are bribes to public officials and law enforcement “looks the other way.” Lawyers devise schemes to defraud estates and others sell off property to their groups of cronies for pennies on the dollar. Families are destroyed, estates pillaged, inheritance depleted, careers shattered, as protracted litigation bankrupts the brightest and the best. Just ask the forty families who came forward to share their “horror stories of probate” at the state Capitol in July 2015.

This dirty little secret comes as a surprise to vulnerable family members facing the loss. Although public awareness is slowly growing, resistance to change plagues the industry. According to financial expert Juliette Fairley probate is big business topping nearly $41 trillion annually, double the energy industry.

For those of us who have legally abused by court appointed and estate lawyers experienced threats, corruption, forced to sign non-disclosure agreements to conceal the lawyers schemes and fraud, legal fee churning, and other abuses, life is never the same. New media websites like the Estate of Denial, F.A.C.E.U.S. (Denver), the National Association to Stop Guardian Abuse, and HAR Justice’s, “The Economic Rape of America” along with online radio programs have done their part to “highlight” the issue, yet this ugly reality persists.

Illinois: Corruption, Elder Cleansing & Estate theft


new logoKen Ditkowsky



The First Amendment is not “ill-defined.” It is obvious is that Health care Fraud is a trillion dollar industry and elder cleansing is a key part of the entire package. This fraud provides corrupt judicial officials, their appointees, and their associates with ready “tax free” remuneration that is protected by “court orders.” 

To: Editors of the Wall Street Journal

Cc: Justice Department/Law enforcement.

This morning (April 16, 2015) the First editorial starts with the words:

“Ill- defined federal laws now reach into virtually every sphere of human behavior, and thus prosecutors can destroy almost anyone they choose.”

Indeed, such is a sobering thought; however, many Federal and State laws are very clear and they also10252043_631709193589576_7022154908430043279_n reach into every sphere of human endeavor. Many of these laws, especially those that codify America’s core values should not be swept under the rug or granted an insignificant status. For instance, it is very clear and black letter law that any citizen, at any- time, anywhere, and in just about any circumstances has a right to complain to other citizens and to law enforcement of judicial corruption, political corruption, and even suspected corruption. Thus, a citizen, has a right to author or manage a blog that claims that particular judges in Cook County, Illinois are corrupt, and aiding and abetting the elder cleansing of senior citizens and the infirm. 47 USCA 230, Article 1 of the Illinois Constitution and the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. The First Amendment has evoked great controversy over the years; however, the Supreme Court has been steadfast in decreeing that it must be given its more liberal interpretation.

It is an equally sobering thought that by use of semantics and by outright misinterpretation of the words and phrases uttered by the Legislative branch of government editorial boards. Prosecutors, and apologists alike can take any ‘language’ and distort it to either advance a cause or to destroy a cause. We call these forays “intellectual dishonesty.” Thus, when a respected Senator goes to the mat for a friend who is obviously over-charging the government on Medicare and engaging in some questionable activities it is easy to divert attention and object to the prosecution of the Senator for misusing his official position.

Here in Illinois the Wall Street Journal, other media outlets, law enforcement, and the legal community have turned a deaf ear to cries for an investigation of ‘elder cleansing.’ Elder cleansing being the systematic railroading of a senior citizen or disabled person into guardianship for profit. Therein the victim is isolated for his her former life so that he/she can be stripped of his/her humanity, property, liberty, and other civil rights. A Prime example is In re: Mary Sykes 09 P 4585. Therein even though literally hundreds of similar ‘elder cleansing cases’ have been brought to the attention of local, State, and Federal authorities government and law enforcement have failed to enforce the law. The First, Fifth, and Fourteenth Amendments are routinely ignored in the elder cleansing cases, The Americans with Disabilities Act and the protective clauses in the guardianship authorization statues are regularly and routinely ignored.


The BAR Associations: Modern day grifters


strip bannernew-logo25Marti Oakley


This is no different than if bank robbers formed a union and then voted to give themselves immunity from prosecution, based on the idea that without immunity they might be afraid to rob any more banks.


To [grift] is to obtain money or other assets through swindle or fraud. That10468201_687314554677465_9114756285200928886_n brief definition accurately describes what is practiced routinely by members of the BAR Associations across the country. And no where is it more prevalent than it is with regards to the insidious guardianship/conservatorship venues.

More money is stolen from the disabled, children and seniors ,conserved and/or guardianized, than can actually be calculated and much of that theft is going directly into the accounts of lawyers who use the probate and family courts as personal ATM machines.

Hiding behind self-protecting statutes and codes they themselves constructed through various state BAR Associations, and while our state legislators turned a blind eye, the trafficking of the disabled, children and seniors with assets, goes on unabated. All of it facilitated by specially constructed statutes that recognize no wrong doing by attorney’s or judges, much less by the professional vultures euphemistically called “guardians”. More

Medicide: Trafficking the Elderly and the Use of Neuroleptics to Cause Dementia and Early Death


strip bannernew-logo25Marti Oakley _________________________________________________

“This arrangement will terminate upon your death which will most likely occur right about the time your estate has been bled dry of every penny. If an autopsy was performed at this point with the necessary tox screens, there would no doubt be an unexplainable overload of neuroleptic drugs in what was left of your system. Drugs that your estate, medicare and medicaid will be billed for long after you take your last breath. Only a tox will never be done, in any event.”


Over 60? Got assets? You could be the next victim of a predatory guardian10252043_631709193589576_7022154908430043279_n and a cadre of attorney’s, APS agents, social services agents, all looking to fill their quarterly quota’s or their personal bank accounts. Your crime? Aging with assets! And they want them!

While there is a concerted effort to convince the public that family or friends are abusing and exploiting an elderly person, the fact is that 3-5 billion is estimated to be stolen from seniors via professional fiduciary’s and those they work with, every year. These people are strangers to the family and the victim and their only real interest is availing themselves of as much of the estate as possible in as short amount of time as possible.

Every effort is made to make sure the public believes that in these instances of involuntary guardianship, no family member was willing to accept the care of the elder victim. This might be true in some cases, but for most it is the refusal of the probate judge to allow a family member to assume this position. After all, if a family member is guardian, the professional predator is not able to access the assets.

Join us this evening as Tracey Miller returns to the show to discuss the realities of retaliation against families and victims for speaking out and exposing the abuse and fraud in guardianship.

Families across the country have been targeted through the courts for exposing the rampant abuse of “wards” by those who use the system to profit.  Using character assassination, unfounded charges of neglect, abuse and exploitation, those who fight for the rights of the ward are systematically  attacked by the predators.  No evidence needed; none ever produced.  In fact, most “probate” courts never even require any evidence to be produced by those making the charges. Supposedly, the predators word is enough to enter the charges as fact in the courts.

Tracey and I will be talking about the very real threat of physical retaliation as families fight back against a growing and highly protected system of human trafficking for profit that operates with the cooperation and facilitation of the probate and family courts.

Speaking out?  It could get you hurt!

Florida Nursing Home Owner Shield: FL bill 670 a clear violation of federal statute


strip banner

new-logo25Marti Oakley


The Florida House and Senate recently passed a clearly protectionist bill. Fl 670, meant to shield the owners, investors, managers and other employees and individuals from liability for their failure to protect, and to ensure the well-being and rights of home residents, is a clear violation of federal code regarding these same individuals.

Rick Scott, Florida governor and holder of the largest Medicare Fraud Scam on record, dutifully signed this bill into law knowing full well that the abuse, neglect and deprivation of individual rights of nursing home residents would explode as a result.

Scott, apparently not remotely concerned with what is an obvious conflict of interest, or, against the best interests of nursing home residents, signed FL 670 into law.  This despite his active construction of the largest Medicare scams in US history.

10308126_655703157817352_3150440186206186545_nMiami officials exposed the fraud in June of 2009. Five states were involved and several fake businesses were found operating with the intent to defraud Medicare and Medicare Advantage for non-existent drugs and treatments for cancer and HIV. Scott, and seven other defendants were identified in the scam.

Guess how much time any one of them served for this fraud and theft? If you guessed “0“, you would be correct. Instead of going to prison for grand larceny, theft by deception or any other relevant charge, they paid 1.7 billion in fines and settlement and got a “get out of jail for 1.7 billion” pass.  Of course, we can find no evidence that the fine was actually ever paid in part or full.  More
