Is 18 US 2071 a Law for Convenience?

Are we to believe our modern country is a civilized society based on law when case after case spotlights the legal system has devolved so that the laws are only conveniences to be selectively applied for some
not applied or weaponized against others? Did you, or anyone in your family, or anyone you know have a case for which any records that were deposited with a clerk, officer of any court, or public office, and actual records were concealed, mutilated, obliterated, destroyed, falsified or “magically” removed?  If so, it’s possible that 18 US 2071 may apply.
For example, were your records or the records of someone “near and dear” to you willfully and unlawfully concealed, removed, obliterated or mutilated to ensure justifying an illegitimate Guardianship matter? Did County Assistance willfully and unlawfully conceal, remove obliterate, mutilate or falsify records in
your case or the case of someone you know to deprive needed benefits?
Were records willfully and unlawfully concealed, removed, mutilated, obliterated, destroyed or falsified in
your Social Security or Disability case matter?
I know a woman whose retirement account from an out-of-state insurance company (Interstate Commerce) which required her signature to execute was falsified by the signature of her ex-spouse and then attorneys, who are Officer’s of the Court, had the document deposited with the court for signing-off.
This Pennsylvania senior citizen’s retirement was “signed-away” by falsification of record that was deposited and filed with a court clerk.  And it can’t be overlooked that emptying out retirement accounts often leave the person subject to penalty and taxes for a pension or account that they never received.
It has become more common than most realize for senior citizen’s medical records to be falsified and filed with a court as a justification to obtain guardianship where their assets and retirement funds are confiscated and stolen by record concealment, mutilation, destruction and falsification which is subject to 18 US 2071.

I can attest that records in my child support case connected with the Title IV-D Contract under the
Social Security Act were willfully and unlawfully falsified. Child support happens to be subject to federal regulation, and codes. The responsible persons should be accountable under Criminal Statute 18 USC 2071, yet the violations not only went unchecked, but those responsible continue driving down “Crime Highway”,and several announced their candidacy for 2022 elected official positions including the PA Governor and U.S. Senator regardless that they should be disqualified under 18 USA 2071.
According to Crimes and Criminal Procedure Part-1 Chap. 101- Records and Reports under 18 USC 2071, concealment, removal, or mutilation of records and reports generally caries fines, imprisonment and disqualification of office which is for any government officer of the court usurping their sworn legal duty
to abide by federal law. Supremacy Clause Article VI Clause 2. More specific 18 USC 2071:
(a) Whoever willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, or destroys, or attempts 
to do so, or with intent to do so tales and carries away any record, proceeding, map, book, paper, 
document, or other thing, files deposited with any clerk or officer of any court of the United States, or in 
any public office, or with any judicial or public officer of the United States, shall be fined under this title 
or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.
(b) Whoever, having the custody of any such record, proceeding, map, book, document, paper, or other 
thing, willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies,, or destroys the same, 
shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both; and shall forfeit his 
office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United StatesAs used in this 
subsection, the term “office” does not include the office held by any person as a retired officer of the 
Armed Forces of the United States.
It is not uncommon for local, state or federal government employees to falsify and “cover-up” documents
medical records, financial records, and even court transcripts, to sabotage a case or matter while in the possession of an employee, official, bureaucrat, and/or judge.
While accidents and errors do occur, corrections seem to be far apart and few in between. I am familiar with PA County Assistance Office falsifying the SNAP Computer System which impacts the approval of food stamps for which those funds are derived from the federal government.
I’ve experienced providing records to the court for which a judge willfully and unlawfully concealed, destroyed, obliterated, and falsified the record for the sole purpose of obstructing my rights and officially oppressing me to “rig” my case which is linked to superseding Federal Regulations and Codes.
I know of a case where a medical researcher discovered falsified research records by a colleague for which government funding was received which very well may have been subject to 18 US 2071, however, often the record-tampering goes unchecked, or a “whistle-blower” is crucified after exposing the tampering.
Records can be falsified to terminate parental rights to gain child custody and “foster-out” or adopt-out”
Humans are profitable commodities. Unfortunately and troubling is that more often then not crimes go unchecked when there are laws in place to stop violators in their tracks. Many of these violators are
officials, bureaucrats, or state agencies who have a flagrant disregard for laws, regulations, codes, and Constitution.
The Orphan’s Courts, Family Courts, and Probate Courts are most heavily targeted for assets and vulnerable to record tampering, yet are typically overlooked and “brushed- off” when these matters are the most fundamental to “we the people”.
Maybe a National Registry is needed to report a list of those who concealed, removed, mutilated, obliterated, falsified, or destroyed documents or records.
