A South Carolina lawmaker is proposing the most sweeping changes in two decades to the state’s magistrate system after an investigation by The Post and Courier and ProPublica exposed how politics and flawed oversight provided fertile ground for incompetence and corruption on the bench.

The legislation filed Wednesday by Sen. Tom Davis, a Beaufort Republican, would bolster the required legal training for magistrates who aren’t lawyers, increase protections for the many criminal defendants who appear before them and add a layer of scrutiny to magistrate appointments — posts that often go to politically connected insiders.

As the news organizations reported last month, South Carolina’s roughly 320 magistrates handle hundreds of thousands of cases each year, but most have never practiced law in their life; to qualify for nomination to the lower courts, applicants need only to earn an undergraduate degree and pass basic competency exams. As a result, these little-watched judges can sentence someone to jail for months or saddle them with thousands of dollars in fines, but have less required training than the state’s barbers or masseuses.  READ MORE HERE

Memorial Day Honoring Those who died for Freedom.

Posted by Admin:

Author, Chuck Frank

 

 

As a former Marine who served from 1960 to 1964 and also during the Cuban Missile Crises, I am here today to encourage all people in America to give honor to all of those where honor is do. Through, the centuries there have been millions of Americans who went to war and lost their lives for the cause of freedom while the very word freedom, in this case, is a term that most likely fits into the understanding of what is reflected in the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights that traditionally refers to the first 10 amendments of the Constitution. When followed by law enforcement and the courts correctly, this document represents American’s core values which also points to the popular phrase that was written in the Declaration of Independence, which is “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.”

For the record, there is not one country in the world that has these basic constitutional protections for its people which was bestowed upon us by those great founders of our first government. One of the basic reasons why the Bill of Rights was so important is that it was meant to protect the people from any and all injustices and from their own government.  However, in spite of these protections, many corrupt agencies, courts and judges in the past and today have dishonored the people’s rights and those magnificent protections within the Bill of Rights and thereby dishonored those millions of persons who fought for freedom through the ages.

Today, nations such as China is a perfect example of a lost country which has no protections for its people to where minimal freedoms are delegated to only those who fulfill the mandates and requirements of the totalitarian Communist State, which is, by the way, being ruled by the present Emperor, Xi Jinping, appointed for life and was not voted in by the people through a democratic process.

While the sad plight of the Chinese people is obvious because of its government’s massive electronic web of surveillance, there are other countries to where freedom now lies in the balance, and yes, this includes America, the UK, Russia, Belgium, the entire European Union and more. The intrusion of the people’s privacy is well known, as is the massive web of surveillance and the data that is being collected and archived by various corporations and governments, which should stand as a dire warning to all people who seek basic unalienable rights and freedoms. The world has rapidly drifted into a high tech behemoth where monumental trials and tribulations are already here and will continue as great governmental injustices mount while citizens, regardless of legal statutes, will be tracked while being under suspicion with no probable cause. In terms of overall privacy protections and the surveillance factor, the US today has the worst ranking in the democratic world. This is truly heartbreaking.

This goes to say that America’s freedoms are now being lost at light speed as documented here by Privacy International with a map of the surveillance Societies around the world and showing the UK, US, Russia, China and others in black as designating “endemic surveillance.”

These facts should leave liberty loving advocates speechless when considering the blood and precious freedoms that our heroic American’s fought for while freedom is now vanishing into a black hole. It is urgent that “we the people” begin to make a move for the sake of righteousness and natural rights in order to set the captives free.  Let us work now while there is light, for the darkness comes when no one can work.

We Say Goodbye to Dorothy Luck: A true advocate for guardianship reforms

Leave a comment

The recent passing of Dorothy Luck, will be sad news for the many people she worked to help free from this human trafficking of the elderly.  Having freed herself from one of these so called guardianships, Dorothy spent the remainder of her time on earth helping to try and reform this insidious system.  She was described by those close to her as “a true advocate and wonderful friend”.

Dorothy traveled many times to the Texas State Capital and worked with many advocates for guardianship reforms.  She never feared those who forced her into this injustice and she accomplished freeing herself from those who used her for her wealth.  Her guardianship was closed and her rights were restored.  She accomplished this by exposing what Guardianship was truly about, money, as it was much better protected than she was, yet many court appointees profited from her wealth.  She tells it like it is in the story below.

http://america.aljazeera.com/watch/shows/america-tonight/2015/5/when-judges-can-take-away-senior-citizens-basic-rights.html

Imagine losing control of the most basic decisions in your life: the right to speak for yourself, how to spend your money or even what medicines you should be taking. Dorothy Luck was in a dispute with family over trust money. After a court-ordered medical exam, she was declared incompetent to make big financial decisions and ended up a ward of the state. In this excerpt from America Tonight, Sheila MacVicar investigates shocking cases of elderly Americans at the mercy of court-appointed guardians.

Thank you Dorothy for all your dedication and efforts on behalf of others.  You will be dearly missed!

The Silver Standard: Legal information about Financial Elder Abuse and involuntary Guardianship for your state.

Leave a comment

Editor’s note:  The Silver Standard is building one of the most useful, documented and resourced webpages for educating families and seniors on the risks and rights of the elderly and their families.  Be sure to join this site for up to date, relevant information on the state of the elderly in YOUR state. 

Finally! News you can use for seniors!

The Silver Standard News

On the EARN website under “State Info,” There is a drop-down list where you can find all the legal information about Financial Elder Abuse and involuntary Guardianship for your state.

As we researched each state, a question arose—though the public chooses those who will represent their interests and safety and, through one manner of taxation or another, pay the salaries of those representatives as well as Attorney Generals, Judges, and District Attorneys, why is there so little concern shown for the senior citizens in so many states? It is particularly perplexing given the fact that those very senior citizens are, more often than not, paying the largest share of the taxes and casting the largest share of the votes.

Over the next year, we will compare all 50 states, each month we will carry forward the state that was the best in the previous month’s comparisons, to see…

” However, first, we must turn our attention to the suffering that must be our principle concern and that is American life, American suffering, American senior citizens suffering and dying at the hands of other Americans – some of them in black robes.”

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

The Silver Standard

From the Directors desk

Elder abuse, and involuntary guardianship, can happen to anyone irrespective of financial position. Social Security checks are a prime target of abusers, Trusts and large estates can be an irresistible temptation to some victim’s children, lawyers, bankers, financial advisors, new best friends and caregivers and, all too often, the professional guardianship institutions, the nursing homes they are “friendly” with and sometimes judges who are in on it. Greed comes in all shapes and colors – and yes, even wearing black robes.

The system is set up in a way that presents temptations so great that even some otherwise good people will do bad things.

Guardians are named by the court and then run roughshod through their ward’s life and estate while judges do not hold them accountable.

Guardians go to court and lie to get control of a person and the judge ignores the statements and requests of the family, does not interview the proposed ward, makes no attempt whatsoever to evaluate the situation and the claims of the guardian.

As in a case with which we are familiar, lawyers –  representing professional guardians –  and judges are friends. In this particular case, there are pictures of this, particularly of the two, over and over again, trying to dodge the photographer as they leave a local bar where they frequently lunch together.  Can you guess why that lawyer has never lost a case in front of that judge?

In April, a former NY judge agreed to resign from the bench as he pleaded guilty to federal charges of money laundering and tax crimes and a NY State charge of second-degree grand larceny. All of this could send him to prison for 10 years on the state charges and 20 years on the federal charges.  More

Probate Courts: Criminal racketeering sanctioned by government revisited

_____________________________________

“This system of theft will continue until the entire estate has been stolen leaving the victim penniless. At this point, Medicare and Medicaid are used as the cash cow to cover medical expenses and the inflated charges of nursing, the doctors’ visits and vast amounts of medications are charged off to these services costing these services millions each year in padded billing. 

____________________________________________

One of the worst pseudo courts in the US is the system of probate courts.  Across the board, in absolutely every state is a so-called court system that operates for profit at the expense of any individual or family unfortunate enough to have any assets.  By law, upon death of the estate holder, all assets are seized by the court for distribution.  Supposedly these courts are charged with making sure all assets are distributed in the manner the decedent supposedly wanted yet it is estimated that 80% of heirs never receive their inheritance or receive only small portions of what was originally left to them as a result of the criminal racketeering that occurs in these courts.

Between the probate judge who has a financial interest against the estate collecting on average 6-7% of the estate nationally,(this is aside from his annual salary paid by the state and is assessed against each and every probate case in their courts) and attorneys who will land on the estates like a swarm of vultures and who misuse the courts to access the assets of the decedent while filing vexatious motions, charges and suits then charging hyper-inflated fees for these actions against the estate, there is little chance heirs will receive anything at all.

Probate begins when a person dies. The decedent’s last will and testament and death certificate are filed through probate court which sets this system of organized crime into motion. The will outlines the decedents’ final wishes including funeral arrangements and distribution of assets.

So how do living persons end up having their estates stolen by predatory guardians, crooked attorneys, and corrupted judges?  After all, probate is premised upon the individual having died.

You are dead in the law!

The most insidious motion filed in any guardianship case is the motion that creates the guardianship. This motion, once granted, removes all civil and constitutional rights of the person in question.  These people now do not even have the rights still afforded death row prisoners.  In effect these individuals now held prisoner by the predatory guardianship are “dead in the law” and the courts view them as if they are in fact, literally dead.  Dead people have no rights.

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.

Photo: Defendant Attorney Cuffe

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.

Minnesota Attorney General’s Office Defends Corrupt Judge, Refuses to Intervene in Grazzini-Rucki Case

3 Comments

Welcome to Minnesota!!

Justice for Sandra Grazzini-Rucki and Children

Is the Minnesota Attorney General’s Office participating in a cover up of corruption happening in Dakota County? 

The current Attorney General in Minnesota is Laurie Swanson, who was elected in 2006, and reelected in 2010 and 2014. The Attorney General’s Office has been receiving documentation concerning the Grazzini-Rucki case for over 5 years and has refused to investigate or take any action in the face of serious allegations, and evidence, showing corruption in local government and law enforcement. However, when opposing President Trump’s immigrant order, Lori Swanson said “It does not pass constitutional muster, is inconsistent with our history as a nation, and undermines our national security. The same can be said for Dakota County; yet instead of taking a public stance on a very real concern that affects not only the Grazzini-Rucki family but the entire state of Minnesota, and possibly tens of thousands of families…

Questions Raised In Prosecution of Convicted Molester in New York State

25 Comments

new-logo25By Mike Volpe

4:22.24 March 26, 2015

_______________________________________________

Friends and family of the accuser say the man convicted of molesting her in early 2014 wasn’t given a fair trial and the police, the Department of Social Services (DSS), the District Attorney, and the judge were fooled by a manipulative teenager. Jon Massey committed suicide by swallowing a cyanide pill shortly after being found guilty of molesting his girlfriend’s daughter Ruby, twelve at the time of the allegation, but Liz Scanlon, a teacher for nearly thirty years, believes her daughter lied.

Massey had struggled with depression and suicidal ideation since 2001, according to Scanlon.

“There are some teenagers that will threaten to call CPS and the police on their parents if they aren’t allowed to do what they want. Some of them even follow through.” Scanlon said.

Scanlon said the Jefferson County Department of Social Services (DSS) removed both Ruby and her younger daughter, now 10, immediately after Ruby first made the allegations because Scanlon was skeptical of her daughter and stuck by Massey.

Margaret Williams, Scanlon’s friend, said she believed that the state vigorously prosecuted Massey because Liz Scanlon threatened to sue the state. Scanlon filed a Notice of Claim in October 2012, the first step toward filing a formal lawsuit, shortly after DSS removed both Ruby and her younger daughter.

As a result of Massey’s conviction and Scanlon standing by him, both Ruby and Scanlon’s younger daughter, now 10, Scanlon hasn’t seen either daughter in more than a year.

“All Jon ever did was try to be a good father to all three of them (Liz Scanlon’s kids),” said Khris Lavere a friend and neighbor of Scanlon’s.

Scanlon said she’d maintained an on and off again relationship with Massey starting in 2008, but it wasn’t until July 2012 that her daughter first accused him of molesting her. But it was what the jury didn’t hear that Massey’s lawyer, Sal Piemonte, said was critical to the case.

In the weeks leading up to the accusations Ruby had been caught a number of times visiting a twenty-one year old named Michael Heisler.

The relationship became intense and sexual with on text message stating, “If our relationship works, let’s write a book for prejudiced society. Our little love story/scandal will be a best seller.”

One evening past midnight about two weeks prior to the accusations, Scanlon and her daughter got into an argument which turned violent and woke up their neighbors, the Lavere’s.

Divorce Corp Reform In Washington D.C November 15,16 2014

 

PLEASE VISIT THE LINK FOR REGISTRATION, BOOK NOW!!!!

http://www.divorcecorp.com/reform-2/

While the movie Divorce Corp opened the eyes of many when it addressed the very real issues within our family courts nationwide, when it was in theaters in January. Thousands of people are being victimized by the family court, losing everything, in a never ending battle, hanging by a thread. Thanks’ to DIVORCE CORP the movie, for shedding the much needed light on this living nightmare.

With DIVORCE CORP REFORM

people from east to west can meet in Washington D.C November 15,16 2014

More money flows through the family courts, and into the hands of courthouse insiders, than in all other court systems in America combined – over $50 billion a year and growing. Through extensive research and interviews with the nation’s top divorce lawyers, mediators, judges, politicians, litigants and journalists, DIVORCE CORP. uncovers how children are torn from their homes, unlicensed custody evaluators extort money, and abusive judges play god with people’s lives while enriching their friends. This explosive documentary reveals the family courts as unregulated, extra-constitutional fiefdoms. Rather than assist victims of domestic crimes, these courts often precipitate them. And rather than help parents and children move on, as they are mandated to do, these courts – and their associates – drag out cases for years, sometimes decades, ultimately resulting in a rash of social ills, including home foreclosure, bankruptcy, suicide and violence. Solutions to the crisis are sought out in countries where divorce is handled in a more holistic manner.

Charges filed against Executive Director, Commission on Judicial Conduct and Associated Director, WSBA

7 Comments

____________________________________________

Today, January 7, 2014, an information (a.k.a. indictment) was filed in Kitsap Superior Court against J. Reiko Callner, Esq., Executive Director, Commission on Judicial Conduct, and against Felice Congalton, Esq., Associate Director of the WA State Bar.

The entire indictment can be read at this link Cause quo warranto v Callner Congalton

Both Callner and Reiko are alleged to have conspired, using their government office, to protect dishonest judges and lawyers from charges of various crimes and unethical conduct.

WA State, under statutory authority RCW 7.56.020, provides for any person to file an “information” when any state official “unlawfully hold or exercise any public office” that affects the “interests” of that person.

Clearly when a judge or a lawyer violates the law in the exercise of their office these corrupt judges and lawyers breach their oath to the law and to their code of conduct. When such behavior is ‘concealed,’ as both Callner and Congalton have done, our “justice system” is reduced to a game established for the amusement of corrupt judges and lawyers. And citizens are nothing more than their play-toys in the game of who can tell the most believable lie.

The lawsuit also invokes the ‘conflict of interest’ statute, RCW 2.28.030, that forbids a lawyer from acting as judge on a case in which the lawyer has a direct interest. Clearly, all lawyers are directly interested in the laws, codes and public duty which apply to them. This lawsuit deals squarely with lawyers’ obligations to Scheidler specifically and to the public as a whole.

Allegations taken from the indictment #14-2-00042-3, against both Callner and Congalton are as follows:

First Cause of Action: Violation of RCW 9A.80.010 Official misconduct. More

The judicial system: Closed Union Shops violating your rights

21 Comments

Marti Oakley (c)copyright 2011 All Rights Reserved

______________________________________________

 Several state supreme courts have quietly issued new “rules” that make it illegal (not unlawful) for anyone to help a pro se litigant assemble research or contribute in any way to presenting their case.  These courts however, made no such ruling regarding the use of law clerks and paralegals who routinely are used by BAR members to do the actual work required to put a case together.

_____________________________________________

There are few people these day still having any illusions about the corruption in our judicial system. As we have seen and heard, our courts are the last place to find justice or to see the rule of law applied.  Our courts, once the last line of defense in legal matters, have become nothing more than government sanctioned racketeering.  Reports of judicial misconduct in virtually every court system in the nation, is not only on the rise, it is being condoned by the silence of the Department of Justice, congress and state governments.  Even SCOTUS decided that the corruption of the lower courts was not worthy of their superior and divine attention due in part to the high level of corruption in its own court.

They are running closed union shops 

The term “closed shop” is used to signify an establishment, trade or skill which employs only members of the union.  Our courts are closed union shops which are now actively writing new rules (lawmaking) to prevent anyone other than BAR union members from accessing the courts. We are now being told that it is accepted practice for judges to create their own laws, in total disregard for the constitution or individual rights and protections and with total disregard for established and accepted law.  If this is in fact the case…..why can’t we create our own common courts that bypass these union shop courts?  After all, the current judicial system no longer adheres to the law and instead operates as independent corporate contractors relying on code and statute or newly created laws they themselves create.  I see no reason why we should have to continue to pay private contractors to violate our rights.

Probate Courts: Criminal racketeering sanctioned by government
