Michigan Probate Puts Elderly and Disabled in Danger

I’m not giving up.

If I have to fight alone the Michigan Attorney General, along with all her supporters, the Michigan State Legislature, a collectively apathetic Michigan media, Facebook and this damnable probate court until the attorneys and judges committing atrocities against the elderly and developmentally disabled are in jail, I will.

I know a lot of folks are probably sick of what you could argue had become a single note in my life of late. I can’t share it here at the moment but I’ll be damned if I’m going to stop trying to raise awareness.

But if it was you, and you saw these crimes against the helpless, knew they were still happening and it was equally clear no one, outside the victims, their families or advocacy groups, gave a shit or was prepared to take any action, what would you do?

So in the spirit of #JonathanVanderhagen who was jailed for calling out a Michigan judge, Dana Nessel are you listening?

I accuse you of being complicit in the abuse, neglect, torture, robbery, brutalization and isolation of Michigan’s most vulnerable.

I accuse you of being an accomplice in the destruction of evidence of these crimes.

I accuse you of breaching your duty as Attorney General and of outright deception to the people of Michigan.

Are you sufficiently threatened yet? If so, I dare you to come and arrest me.

Because if you think because I’m alone I’m weak, you understand very little. If you have anything to do with protecting the people committing those crimes and you are not afraid, then you understand nothing at all.

So, for your own sake, understand this:

I’m going to find you. I’m going to expose you and I will never ever stop.

State of Florida sued for trafficking and abuse of elderly under guardianship

SE Texas Record

By David Yates | Sep 17, 2019

SAN ANTONIO – A group of adult children sued the state of Florida’s governor and attorney general in Florida Northern District Court, alleging that, under court appointed guardianship, their parents’ estate, assets, 401k funds, social security money, jewelry, cars and homes are being stolen.

After all is liquidated or redistributed, the senior citizens under these alleged unconstitutional court appointed guardianships are starved, denied medical care or prescribed high doses of toxic psychotropic medication to intentionally cause death, according to a press release.

Plaintiffs Barbara Stone, Lesa Martino and Patty Reid are collectively calling for an executive order from President Trump to the FBI and the Department of Justice to enforce the law and criminally investigate the Defendants.

“The Florida guardianship statute is being used as a pretense of legitimacy for an immoral, inhumane, barbaric color of law proceeding wherein judges are working together with attorneys and guardians to abuse vulnerable adults,” wrote the Plaintiffs in their Sept. 5 complaint.

Governor Rick DeSantis and Attorney General Ashley Moody are Defendants named in the lawsuit along with Florida Senate Chairman Bill Galvano, Florida Speaker of the House John Oliva, Office of Public and Private Guardians Director Carol Berkowitz who recently resigned along with the state’s Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis and Secretary of Elder Affairs Richard Prudom.

Update from Gretchen Rachel Hammond about Oakland Co. (MI) Probate Court which she investigated thoroughly for her five-part series, “The Fortress.” ( https://www.dailykos.com/…/-The-Fortress-Part-One-of-Five-U…).
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
From Gretchen: Good, sneaky and bad news.

It seems the guardians and judges at the Oakland County Probate Court have been doing a bit of house cleaning since August:

Elderly and developmentally disabled victims are getting moved out of unlicensed group homes.

Small refunds are being offered to victim family members on the proviso that they sign a form saying they received a refund for “accidental over billing.”

Guardians are trying to close out cases and get rid of their own assets (such as half million dollar homes).

Files in case dockets are being altered or removed (such as accounts, change of address forms and ex parte orders).

As of last week, the court’s only public access computer (the one my team and I used to research case files without paying $1-per-page) is gone.

So, the good: removal of victims from unlicensed group homes.

The sneaky: small refund as long as you agree to saying. “No worries. Small oops. Could have happened to anyone.”

The bad: destruction of evidence and hiding assets. If Dana Nessel was really investigating these crimes, one would imagine that such activity would be a naughty no-no.

Tonight, Patricia & Robert Femia join us to talk about the downstream effects of predatory guardianships. Patricia’s mother, captured and isolated from her family, soon succumbed to the psychological torture inflicted upon her. In a classic case of trauma based bonding, she rejected all ties to her daughter and her family. Instead, she identified with her captors. In what was a clear case of the Stockholm Syndrome, and the effects on the family as this unfolded were staggering.

“This horrific ordeal has left me and my family completely heart-broken. My mother was taken care of and had her daughter and son-in-law and grandchildren living closely around her every day. She lived comfortably, was healthy and had her independence for many years. Once this whole scenario unfolded,she died all alone in a nursing home.”

Tune in as Patricia and Robert tell how they managed to survive this attack on their family, and where are they today in managing the damage.

This year’s Whistleblower Summit had many interesting and illumination discussion panels.

For us at the Silver Standard and The EARN Project, the panel conducted by Marti Oakley was of most interest.

Many people are drawn to the Summit just to meet Marti. They have listened to her shows on her TS Radio Network, and they appreciate her for being a leading voice for reform and her achievement in bringing this issue to the Summit. She was her usual dynamic self, shining a light into the dark corners of this growing global threat. More

NOT WITHOUT MY MOTHER!!! A VICTIM’S STORY FROM MINNESOTA TO GREECE

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

On May 2, 2016, my mother and I fled from her Minnesota guardian and Judge who collaborated with attorneys to create a guardianship based on a fraudulent diagnosis. The only thing wrong with my mother was that she had two sons that continually pursued her, at the expense of her life and her health, for control of her estate. As a result of family discord, the racketeers banded together to create a lucrative guardianship. After my mother suffered isolation and inappropriate drugging with the judge’s approval for almost two years, we determined the only way out was to run, and run we did! My mother and I are currently living in exile in Greece; the country she immigrated from.

Her guardian, Dan Lodahl, principle of First Fiduciary Corporation (City of Eagan) has many complaints against him. These complaints are well known throughout Minnesota, but are consistently and systematically ignored and hidden from the public.  Mr. Lodahl and his wife, Michelle Lodahl, use unethical billing practices while forcing wards to submit to their demands through false imprisonment, isolation, and inappropriate drug ingestion to promote unconsciousness and early death. Dan Lodahl is the Jared Shafer (Nevada) of Minnesota: untouchable.

My mother recently told a reporter, “When my husband died, everyone came after me just because they could. I had a life, a home, money; they took everything.”  Family members, attorneys, a physician, a Judge, a guardian and assisted living facility staff perpetrated incomprehensible cruelty against my mother and I.  We are law abiding citizens, professionals in our field, that are now fugitives seeking refuge from criminals.

For three years, as the guardian and judge fraudulently denied knowledge of my mother’s whereabouts, my mother was completely dependent on my VA disability for all her living and medical expenses.   The guardian continued to bill her estate thousands of dollars for his salary and expenses that he created without a ward in his jurisdiction. The guardian did everything in his power to deny my mother’s request for her social security income, which she finally received in 2019. He had, and has, no concern for the welfare of ‘his ward.’  She is simply a cash cow.

Despite notifications to the guardian of his ward’s location, he and the judge continue to declare her as missing hoping to make it to the four-year requirement in Minnesota that allows them to designate a missing person as deceased (Death in Absentia). This would give them faster access to her estate in probate court, which they can utilize to deplete her entire estate to fill their own pockets.

Although we are free, we will never truly be free. After a lifetime of dedication to her work, and carefully saving for her future security and that of her children, my mother cannot afford to live the life she worked for. She lost everything to guardianship. I lost everything to save her. Our losses are much deeper than financial; we cannot spend our senior years with our children and grandchildren and we cannot live the life we planned. We live in constant fear of being pursued. We are forced to live a life in exile while unwillingly relinquishing control of my parent’s estate and family legacy. We cannot return to the United States or I will be sentenced to jail and my mother will be forced back into human trafficking.

Currently, the only way out of guardianship is to let the racketeers steal your estate, accept defeat, and escape the country to regain your freedom – your life.

The Devil Lives in Virginia: The Conspiracy that Killed Anastasia Adams – by Yolanda Adams-Bell

“The devil is the personification of evil as it is conceived in many and various cultures and religious traditions. It is seen as the objectification of a hostile and destructive force.”

-Wikipedia

The Devil Lives in Virginia chronicles the story of Anastasia Adams’ nine-month ordeal from her abduction to her murder from the viewpoint of her family.  It is a story of a family’s desperate fight and struggle to free Anastasia from a system (and its predatory guardianship) that was created to help individuals like her but instead abandoned her to nine months of untold pain and suffering.  It is a story of massive obstruction, the powerful and morally bankrupt preying on the weak and those that protect them from accountability.  It is a story of public apathy and indifference to the abuse, neglect and torture that is right under their noses and within their line of sight.  It is the ultimate commentary on the attitude “if it doesn’t affect me it does not matter, it does not exist”.  It is a story of lives – countless lives lost, but most importantly it is a story of two sisters, a bond that only sisters share, and their love for one another.

In 2005 Yolanda became her sister Anastasia’s sole caregiver after she suffered a brain injury.  On February 15, 2017 after being hospitalized for pneumonia and developing fluid around her heart and a hospital born infection Yolanda’s sister Anastasia was abducted by Inova Fairfax Hospital, a well-known and major level one trauma center in the Washington, D.C. suburbs of Northern Virginia, through a legally questionable guardianship.  While in the custody of Inova’s contracted guardians Anastasia allegedly suffered horrendous neglect and abuse.  When Yolanda blew the whistle on what Inova, their guardians, and the Fairfax County Circuit Court, were doing the guardians isolated and then allegedly killed her sister.  Nine months after abducting Anastasia the guardians ended her life through dehydration and starvation.  After 6 days without food or water, doped up on the opiates Fentanyl, Morphine, and other sedating medications Anastasia succumbed and died on November 16, 2017. Due to the guardians severe restrictions on visitation for Anastasia she died alone, without family or clergy there to comfort her.

Yolanda is now focused on ensuring what happened to her much beloved sister never happens to anyone else because elderly and disabled lives matter.
