There is currently an act before the Massachusetts Legislature to establish the Office of Adult Guardianship and Decisional Support Services. (S.1177/H3027). The purpose of the bill is to provide guardianship services to “unbefriended” people who are unable to manage their affairs.

“When I see a bill come out that actually addresses the root causes of this epidemic, that holds accountable the people, institutions, associations and agencies responsible; when the federal government stops funding the exploitation of the American public through cash incentive programs hidden in regulations that keep state treasury’s flush with cash, I’ll support those bills.  Until then, do not expect me to cheer for these do nothing bills that are nothing more than fluff and buff bills meant to make you think they really do care.  They don’t.  “

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

I have watched in dismay as bills have been introduced and/or passed supposedly addressing the trafficking of human beings including the elderly, the disabled and children through the cash incentive systems that fund the buying, selling and trading of the American public. We have been commodified. This system is so rampant and so blatant that we are literally just a step away from auctioning off human beings for profit in the public square. And it wouldn’t be the first time this has happened. The US has a sordid history of selling human beings for profit, only this time around we are all potential property that can be auctioned off.

Having successfully stolen an estimated 3-5 billion annually from the elderly (low estimate) some think the real amount is closer to 10 billion. And, while there are cases of family members, friends, or others in the community who have exploited the elderly and abused them, the vast majority of cases, especially where a large estate is attached, are committed by parasitic individuals who work as predators within and with the cooperation of the probate system, for no other purpose than self-enrichment. These parasites could not care less about the lives they destroy or the misery they cause other human beings.

“Go ahead and see what you can do, because you have been deemed incapacitated, so everything you say or do is meaningless,” said Brenda Uekert, principal court research consultant with the National Center for State Courts. “You can’t even get an attorney, because a judge has already determined that you don’t have the ability to make decisions for yourself.

Two recent bills supposedly intended to address the growing threat of predation of senior citizens who committed the new age crime of aging with assets, address none of the real causes of abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation that occurs under the protection and direction of the so-called “stakeholders” who assembled this system of trafficking, legalizing the conversion of assets from the targeted individuals into the accounts of total strangers whose only interest is self enrichment, is even acknowledged.

Casey Kasem’s Widow Files Wrongful Death Suit Against Radio Host’s Kids

Rolling Stone

Jean Kasem alleges radio personality’s children from another marriage perpetrated a “homicidal guardianship scam”

The widow of Casey Kasem has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the radio personality’s three adult children from another marriage. Jean Kasem claims that Kerri, Mike and Julie Kasem, along with Julie’s husband and their attorney Troy Martin, perpetrated a “homicidal guardianship scam” and, per a statement, “chemically restrained their father and then killed him to go after Casey and Jean’s financial assets.” Jean is also accusing the Kasem children of harassment and making fraudulent claims of elder abuse as part of their attempts to gain guardianship over Kasem.

Speaking with Rolling Stone, Kerri Kasem denied the claims. “The only homicidal part was her unplugging my father’s IV and feeding tube and leaving the hospital with my dad,” Kerri says. “If a mom delivered a preemie and said, ‘You know what? I’m going to take this baby home. I don’t care what you say’ and the baby died three weeks later, that mom would’ve been brought up on murder charges.”

Kasem died June 15th, 2014 at St. Anthony Hospital in Gig Harbor, Washington. According to Jean Kasem’s new suit, Kerri picked up her father at his home on June 1st and took him to St. Anthony Hospital, even though there was a hospital one block away. Kasem was accompanied by his personal physician, Dr. Donald Sharman, but was examined at St. Anthony by Dr. Joseph Regimbal, who reportedly cleared Kasem to leave and praised the care being administered to him at home.

However, the suit claims that Kerri Kasem kept her father at St. Anthony for an “unauthorized ‘overnight observation.'” On June 2nd, an attending physician at St. Anthony, Dr. Ramon Basa, reportedly told Jean that Kasem could go home, while a judge also ruled that there was no compelling reason to keep Kasem in the hospital. But when Jean arrived to pick up Kasem, Dr. Basa had apparently changed his mind and Kasem was kept in the hospital.

Daughters Charge “Criminal Enterprise” Within the Mass. Probate & Family Court System –

PART 3:  ISOLATE, MEDICATE, LIQUIDATE:  How to Fleece a Senior

Seek to Shut Down Drugging, Embezzlement, Fleecing of Seniors  ̶  Judge Denies Hearing

by Lonnie Brennan

Marvin H. Siegel is 88 years old. Five years ago, a home health aide dialed 911 and Mr. Siegel was transported to Beverly Hospital. He was subsequently locked up involuntarily in a Whittier Pavilion psychiatric ward according to court filings. Why the health aide called 911 remains a matter of controversy. Mr. Siegel’s daughters charge that their father was snatched up as part of a standard operating procedure amongst certain lawyers and their accomplices. The goal: to begin the process of isolating, medicating, and liquidating their father’s $6 million estate.

And the daughters believe they’ve found the equivalent of a “smoking gun”: a call to Whittier by one of the lawyers accused of stealing Mr. Siegel’s money and entries in the Whittier computer system occurring days before the grab, as the daughters claim in court exhibits. Court filings state that their father was administered drugs at Whittier and while drugged, he was misled to believe that his family was trying to steal his money and – while under the influence of these mind-altering drugs – lawyers convinced the confused elder to affix his signature to documents which stripped away decades of careful, deliberate family estate planning instruments, and stripped the senior from control of his millions.

We will be taking calls the 2nd hour.  If you call in and wish to speak, press #1 immediately when Blogtalk answers.

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

Danny Tate will join the show as co-host at least once a month.  We will be covering guardian abuse, conservator abuse, corrupt courts and judges and whatever else pops up that needs to be talked about. 

We cannot continue to go back to the same organizations, political operatives and “stakeholders” who created and facilitate this system of human trafficking for profit and expect them to change it.  We need new ideas, fresh approaches and individuals willing to work as a team to effect a change. 

We have seen several supposed corrective bills both state and federal that do nothing to protect individuals from the predators that access this system, that do nothing but further secure this system.  We need ideas, input, and an end to this predatory system.  We are up against a well funded and well connected system that is nothing less than organized crime.  Its up to us to change it!

We will be taking calls during the 2nd hour of this show if you have questions, comments or suggestions on how to proceed.

Massachusetts Bill H3027….Objective? To cloak financial exploitation of the elderly

15 Comments

Marti Oakley

Comment:  If ever there was a valid reason for disbarring the BAR, making it unlawful for individuals in this closed union to assemble or to attempt to influence laws affecting the public, Massachusetts H 3027 surely has to be one of those reasons. MJO

 

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

Note to Mr. Harshbarger: What exactly is “ordinary negligence?”

The first thing we need to clarify is that probate tribunals (and these are tribunals) operate only under a intentionally constructed system of statutes, rules and regulations that exist only to avoid the common law and access to courts of law. You cannot use the Constitutions, neither state or federal to defend yourself from the predatory activities of these tribunals and the predators who access them for the specific purpose of exploitation and self-enrichment. You have no rights in these tribunals. You have no protections.

Gloucester Times

Harshbarger on Monday asked the Judiciary Committee to throw its support behind a bill that would establish a state office of adult guardianship as a public-private partnership that would handle the appointment of guardians for adults who cannot make their own legal decisions and lack family, friends or access to volunteers who could step into the role.”

At issue is the bill H 3027 currently in the Massachusetts Judiciary Committee. What is clearly a bill meant to legitimize and provide immunity for the predators in the guardianship-for-profit system, the former AG of Massachusetts, Mr. Harshbarger, now newly installed with the Boston lawfirm of Casner & Edwards, is hawking this bill which has no other purpose than to provide protection to the predators.

The first question we all need to ask is:

Who comprises the private part of this so-called “public/private partnership” (ppp)? And why would they be willing to fund a public agency that will supposedly only cost the state about $400 thousand a year to operate?

Sounds tantalizing doesn’t it?! Doesn’t it just give you the warm fuzzies to think there are actually individuals out there who are so altruistic, so philanthropic, that they would fund a public agency dedicated to protecting vulnerable people while saving the state a bucket of money at the same time!! Does it get any better than this? Apparently it does if you are part of the system!

Not so fast.

A new kind of slavery: Guardianship in America

2 Comments

new-logo251_002Marti Oakley

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

Claiming the victim is [incapacitated], these parasitic predators then petition for guardianship. The proof of incapacity? Most likely does not exist. The predatory guardian simply has to claim to the probate tribunal administrator, that there is incapacity of some kind. They do not have to provide any proof, no evidence of any kind to substantiate their claim. After all, there is an estate to be exploited”

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

What it really means to become a “ward of the state”

So how does a living, breathing human being find themselves in front of a probate tribunal? And why should being declared incapacitated, cause you to cease to exist in the law?

Probate supposedly only comes into play upon presentation of the death certificate. It appears that being declared a ward and the accompanying court order, is the de facto death certificate. rules-over-youThe entire system is pivots on the targeted victim being deprived of their natural rights and liberties; an impossible task unless by administrative order they are deprived of their own existence.

To become a “ward of the state” means that you lose your identity, all of your natural rights and liberties and everything you own so much so that another person takes over your life, your identity and all of your life’s work contained in your assets. For all intents and purposes, you died. You just didn’t know it.

Guardianship is said to be the fastest growing cottage industry in America. It is, in a nutshell, the complete takeover of another human beings’ life for the purpose of financial exploitation and personal financial gain. The predators in this government sanctioned system are no less insidious, no less of a danger to the public, than any other predator. More

Charles and Heidi Pascal join us from Nevada to report on the ongoing terrorism by professional guardians, especially the notoriously infamous Jared E. Shafer.  Elderly?  Disabled?  You are a prime target for a predatory guardianship.

Charles:  “My mother in-law was taken across state lines, which makes this a federal crime.  She was taken from Sunrise Senior Living in Playa Vista, California to Las Vegas Nevada where she didn’t want to go.”

The fact we live in California has caused little Jared lots of headaches as he has tried to shut us up.  Little Jared or Jerry, which is what he was called in high school thinks he elevated his status by changing his name from Jerry to Jared.  Different name same creep.

Charles tells the story of the kidnapping of his mother-in-law Marcy Dudeck and the subsequent theft of her estate by Jared Shafer.  He also discusses the ongoing corruption in guardianship cases in Nevada that appears to be unstoppable.  Jared Shafer claims to be the architect of this predatory system.

Here are links to previous reports on Nevada guardianship abuse:

Part One: THE THREE DEATHS OF DOROTHY E. MILICH

Leave a comment

At the core of our rotten government is a lawyer

by
Debbie (Milich) Mysiewicz

“There is no crueler tyranny than that which is exercised under cover of law and with the colors of justice.”
U.S. v. Janotti, 673 F. 2d, 578, 614 (3rd Circuit, 1982)


Preface: Much of the material in Part One and the following extended Part Two, including the names of participants, is drawn from the public portions of Clallam Co. Superior Court case no. 11-4-00249-7, filed September 9th, 2011, Guardianship of Dorothy Milich (aka Milich-Wilson, Wilson.) All docket entries cited are for that case unless otherwise stated.

Click here to jump to Part Two of this story for additional details and an explanation of what happened at each step of the process.

PART ONE
Anyone who has ever read Alexander Solzhenitsyn’s Gulag Archipelago will undoubtedly see many similarities to Washington court guardianships and so-called “agreed” guardianships when it comes to (alleged or real) incapacitated seniors and their families. Prisoners were given little sheets of toilet paper and pencils to write their grievances on, which never amounted to anything and probably were not read. Years after sentencing prisoners got the court rules showing them all the “rights” they had, but which were not asserted because they did not know about them at the time they were convicted. It was too late when they learned about them… More

Exploiting the elderly — a lucrative practice

10468201_687314554677465_9114756285200928886_nFew of us would enjoy having the bulk of our entire lifetime of savings converted into attorneys’ fees during the golden years of our lives. Yet that is happening with such frequency that the offspring of many of the elderly victims are gathering to speak out against ageism and the involuntary redistribution of assets.
One of the most famous occurred in Phoenix, Ariz., where 83-year-old Marie Long, was wrongly declared “mentally incompetent” (an astonishingly frequent occurrence in the courts where lots of money is involved). Subsequently, her professional guardian and the guardian’s attorneys spent all of Long’s money, $1.3 million, in less than two years. Most of Long’s money went for attorneys’ fees
Most of us are now familiar with foreclosure scams, unscrupulous homeowners associations and family court abuses. But few are aware of the lucrative corporate business of professional guardians and their attorneys gorging themselves on the assets of the elderly.
The Internet abounds with information about court-sanctioned predatory professional guardians and attorneys posted by groups such as the National Association to Stop Guardianship Abuse, the National Organization to End Guardianship Abuse, Estate of Denial, and ANGER (Advocates for National Guardianship Ethics and Reform)
Ageism is the new frontier of exploitation. This new civil rights movement promises to affect all of us at some point, since every one of us expects to grow old.
Few of us would enjoy spending our golden years imprisoned in a marginal nursing home while unscrupulous attorneys and their guardians gouge our assets.
The American Association of Retired Persons has tenuously addressed this noteworthy issue, and the Government Accountability Office recently released a 57-page report about financial exploitation of the elderly. Increased public awareness is the first step to ending court-sanctioned predatory guardianships, ageism, and the involuntary redistribution of assets.
