It’s a New Day for Judicial Oversight in America

Or so claims National Judicial Conduct and Disability Law Project, Inc., a U.S. legal system reform advocate — and so far, the U.N. Human Rights Council seems to agree.

ATLANTAJune 19, 2019PRLog — April 2, 2020 is the date set by the U.N. Human Rights Committee (HRCmte) for the United States of America to report on its compliance with the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR).  America earlier agreed to receive a list of issues from the HRCmte, presumably that the U.N. treaty body wants addressed in America’s ICCPR report.  The HRCmte finalized that list at its 125th session which began on March 4, 2019 and ended on March 29, 2019.

National Judicial Conduct and Disability Law Project, Inc. (NJCDLP) is among the civil society organizations that provided the HRCmte information for developing its “List of issues prior to submission of the fifth periodic report of the United States of America” on implementation of the ICCPR.  Today, by joint letter, NJCDLP asks President Trump, U.S. Attorney General William Barr, and State Department official Mr. Scott Busby to ensure the HRCmte’s April 2020 deadline is met.  The U.S. legal system reform organization also asks to be consulted in preparation of America’s 2020 ICCPR report.

Since 2016, NJCDLP has been formally reporting on America’s legal system as part of a campaign known as Opt IN USA.  Through the reports, Opt IN USA “submits that America lacks effective avenues of redress and relief for the role of its judges in objectively discernible, national patterns of persistent U.S. legal system abuse.”  On October 10, 2018, the U.N. Human Rights Council (a U.N. charter body) determined the contentions are not “manifestly ill-founded”, and arguably deemed them true.  With that development, according to NJCDLP, America’s practice of merely “pooh-poohing” harsh critics of its legal system must end.  Writing for NJCDLP and its community mobilizing body, retired Police Chief Gordon L. Wiborg, Jr. and veteran good government activist Mr. Brian Kinter explain that the practice  “increasingly seems too widespread and subjective to be a hallmark of human rights protection.”

NJCDLP seeks to “meet with all government agents involved no later than Monday – September 23, 2019.”  NJCDLP pledges that its delegation will work with the Trump Administration in good faith if extended the opportunity.  The organization’s outreach makes the case that “America never conspicuously embraced a legacy of inadequate judicial oversight, and can certainly start preempting it now.”

STONEWALLED BY COURTS OF THE JUDICIARY-WHERE ARE OUR REPS?

Please tune in tonight to Marti Oakley’s TS Radio Network and also live broadcast on Stephen Burke’s 89.9 KLRB FM

JUDGE SHE “DOESN’T CARE…..

Apparently even when facing hospitalization, enforcing a child support order that violated Due Process matters more. This is beyond a saga. It’s happening throughout our county. Join us tonight when Dave Arndt joins us again- this time from the hospital. Dave will reveal the conversations and contact with our reps; along with our host, Tanya Hathaway, as she digs into this matter.

What are the reps afraid of? Why do some go so far as to put their toes in the water and quickly take them out, and others completely ignore. How deep does the malfeasance go? Are ultimatums being given?

Establishing patterns of public malfeasance is pretty easy in Oklahoma; and unfortunately far too often throughout our country. But we are doing something with it- about it. Come for the ride as this all unfolds. Be a part.

Do you feel you are ready to:

* forward your formal justifiable complaint. I am discussing this and navigating the paperwork with victims / families one on one through zoom, face time, etc.m to assure if you want to get it done – you will.

* start the process of your Petition Of Remonstrance in a unified group already in motion…

* engage in an Oklahoma Class-Action suit

We look forward to hearing from you. You decide what you’re ready to do and what’s the right timing for you. Listen tonight and send your information to: injusticeinoklahom@gmail.com

Follow pages “ Journeys To Justice” and “Injustice In Oklahoma Exposed”

We might not be all that fancy, but we’re getting it done – isn’t that what REALLY matters…

06 20 19 The Long and Short of It the RFK Assassination Truth Reduced to Two Paragraphs:

A Nation Beguiled

By Anna Von Reitz

The Long and Short of It: the RFK Assassination Truth Reduced to Two Paragraphs:

“Unlike his assassinated brother, RFK received a first-class autopsy whose results are trustworthy. Renowned medical examiner Thomas Noguchi performed the autopsy. The autopsy report and Noguchi’s trial testimony reveal that (1) all three bullets striking RFK were fired from behind him, and (2) the three bullets had been fired at point-blank range—“[the] muzzle distance… was very, very close.” The fatal bullet was fired from a firearm “one inch from the edge of [RFK’s] right ear and three inches behind the head.”

Sirhan could not possibly have fired these three shots. He was in front of RFK and never came within 4 or 5 feet of him.”

Is that clear enough for everyone?

The DOJ was complicit. The FBI was complicit. The CIA was complicit. The LAPD was complicit. They all lied their rumps off.

I knew that on my 12th birthday, June 6, 1968. The first thing I heard that morning was the assassination of RFK, the last US Attorney General who actually tried to defend the American States and People.

“EPA had forbidden its staff from filing formal comments on the proposed state PolyMet permits. Instead, it allowed staff to read excerpts from its undelivered comments to state officials. PEER filed suit after EPA refused to voluntarily disclose the full agency comments in response to a Freedom of Information Act request.FOIA”

Billion $ Minnesota Nickel /Copper Mine Will Cause Big Pollution Headaches

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has released its own staff’s year-old objections to major pollution consequences from a controversial mining project, in response to a lawsuit brought by Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER). The case illustrates how EPA now avoids required oversight of state-issued pollution permits.

U.S. Supreme Court Refuses to Uphold Ban on Double Jeopardy & Protect Citizens From Successive Prosecutions

2 Comments

For Immediate Release: June 18, 2019

The Rutherford Institute

WASHINGTON, DC — The U.S. Supreme Court has refused to protect citizens from being prosecuted for the same crime by federal and state governments, a fundamental right enshrined in the Fifth Amendment’s Double Jeopardy Clause.

In a 7-2 ruling in Gamble v. United States, the Supreme Court affirmed the “separate sovereigns” rule, an exception to the Double Jeopardy doctrine that allows states and the federal government to prosecute a person successive times for the same act, even if the person is found not guilty in the first trial. Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Neil Gorsuch dissented, warning that the Court’s majority had failed to recognize that the people—not the government—should be the ultimate sovereigns of power. The Rutherford Institute filed an amicus brief in Gamble, arguing that the “separate sovereigns” doctrine exception—which recognizes federal and state governments as separate sovereigns with distinct prosecutorial powers—violates the Fifth Amendment by enabling the government to abuse its power to prosecute, which is reflected the nation’s harsh and overly-punitive criminal justice system.

“As Justice Gorsuch recognized in his dissent, ‘A free society does not allow its government to try the same individual for the same crime until it’s happy with the result,’” said constitutional attorney John W. Whitehead, president of The Rutherford Institute and author of Battlefield America: The War on the American People. “Despite the Constitution’s clear mandate against double jeopardy, the Supreme Court has given the state and federal governments the green light to continue to subject the citizenry to these prosecutorial abuses.”

MAKE THE GOVERNMENT PLAY BY THE RULES OF THE CONSTITUTION: SUPPORT THE FIGHT FOR FREEDOM
The Double Jeopardy Clause of the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution provides that no person shall “be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb[.]” This prohibition embodies the fundamental principle that it is unfair and an abuse of power for the government to seek to put a person on trial for a criminal offense after that person has already been tried and acquitted (or convicted) of that same offense. However, in a series of cases dating back to the 1850’s, the U.S. Supreme Court has recognized that, because the states and the federal government are “separate sovereigns,” a person can be put on trial for an offense by the federal government even though the person was tried for the same offense in a state court.

In 2015, Terence Gamble was stopped by police while driving with a faulty headlight, and a subsequent search of the vehicle turned up a handgun. Because Gamble had previously been convicted of a felony, his possession of the gun was illegal. He was tried and convicted in state court for illegal possession of a firearm and sentenced to one year imprisonment. While his state conviction was pending, the federal government also charged Gamble with being a felon in possession of a firearm based on the same event that was the basis for his state conviction. Gamble raised the Fifth Amendment’s Double Jeopardy Clause as a defense to the federal charge, but the federal trial court ruled it was forced to reject the defense because of the U.S. Supreme Court’s “separate sovereigns” decisions. The federal court then sentenced Gamble to 46 months’ imprisonment, meaning that Gamble would be imprisoned for nearly three years more than if only the state sentence had been imposed.

In its amicus brief in support of Gamble, The Rutherford Institute urged the Supreme Court to overrule the “separate sovereigns” doctrine because it enables a system where federal and state prosecutors and law enforcement officers can work together against a defendant to apply overbearing institutional pressure.

The Supreme Court’s opinion and The Rutherford Institute’s amicus brief in Gamble v. United States are available at www.rutherford.org. Attorney Elliott Harding assisted the Institute in presenting the arguments in Gamble.

Why They Push to “Privatize” Everything…Especially on the Federal Level

22 Comments

Marti Oakley   PPJ Gazette copyright © 2019

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ever wonder why the government, that spends billions if not trillions each year on wasteful agencies and programs, then allows those agencies to become so dysfunctional, so costly they become a detriment to the public? This is an intentional plan in action with a very much desired end result. Privatization. This means, that some special, well connected “stakeholder” who will make massive amounts of money bilking the public is ready and set to go. The word stakeholder is a word used to describe those who have a vested monetary interest in profiting by any means necessary and they have bribed, bought, groomed, and pampered any elected official willing to sell you out. And bear in mind that no private interest would be remotely interested in taking over any of these services or agencies if the potential for unlimited and unregulated profits was not part of the deal.

The reason that the federal government and its agencies contract out work to private corporations; work they should be quite able to perform in and of themselves (considering this is the reason they were put in office in the first place) and the vast amount of money squandered each year, is to limit the information the public can gain access to under FOIA or other inquiries. What that private corporation will hide behind is “proprietary rights” and “trade secrets”. Unconstitutionally ceding their business, power and authority to a private corporation provides protection from prying eyes and mountains of unconstitutional and unlawful activity can be safely kept out of the public eye through privatization.

So called “deregulation” , sold to the public as necessary if the economy is to survive, is simply a means by which corporations are allowed to operate without those precious regulations, codes, laws, or other bothersome rules the rest of us are bound by. Supposedly, regulations make business too difficult for them to operate. And you saw the benefits of deregulation in 2008 when Wall Street oversaw the disappearance of millions and billions of dollars of other people’s money…money which was never recovered. The corporate world claimed that those regulations were an interference with “free trade”, and “capitalism”.

60% of all corporations PAY NO TAXES. But somehow they do receive multi-million dollar tax refunds each and every year. How does “free trade and capitalism” sound to you now? Free breaks for them and the capital flows into their accounts. All the while you, the over regulated and taxed individual fights to keep enough of your income to survive on. [2]
