“It would seem to me that if you are intent on depriving a targeted victim of their identity, this should be done in a civil court, where evidence would have to be provided under oath attesting to the charges being levied. Let a jury decide if your personal identity should be taken from you and gifted to a professional predator that most likely has a long and sordid history of preying on those they perceive to be vulnerable.”

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

Declaring the living individual dead to enable the theft of the estate.

Barratry, a term that is now referred to as archaic, rarely, if ever, appears in the legal lexicon. It is the act of knowingly bringing false claims and charges against a targeted individual by members of the BAR Associations. And, it is the result of “the frequent incitement of lawsuits and quarrels that is a punishable offense.”

Every such individual ever forced into one of these pseudo “courts” that are in reality, tribunals, has suffered barratry and been subjected to a foreign jurisdiction and form of “pseudo law”, within which they were specifically disabled and unable to defend themselves. These unconstitutional tribunals were specifically created for this purpose: to leave the individual totally unable to defend themselves against a system devised to render them without any rights or protections. The Constitutional authority for these tribunals has been argued under the 1st, 3rd and 4th Articles of the Constitution, the sheer number of these treatises being a clear indication that they are not Constitutional.

Next, is the use of personage ( a term redefined for obvious reasons). Both barratry and personage are crimes against the individual by members of the BAR. Both of these criminal acts are used to enact foreign statutory law against living people. Foreign to the people, as statutory law circumvents the natural rights and liberties guaranteed in the Constitution and erects a legal fiction contradicting and adverse to the Constitution Bill of Rights, to directly benefit its creators. Which is exactly the only purpose of statutes.

The term “personage” has now been redefined to mean a person of importance or rank. Originally, it meant to assume another individuals’ identity with the intent of accessing their property; an act criminally prosecutable.

Today we recognize personage as identity theft. Of course its only a crime if you do it…if a member of the BAR Association does it in collusion with a for-profit guardian intent on availing themselves of your identity with the intent of fraudulently accessing your assets, it is not a problem; just all in a day’s work. Once the identity theft has been secured, testamentary powers are gifted to the predators who now present themselves as the civilly dead person so that the liquidation of the estate assets can begin in earnest.

Whistleblowers! is brought to you in coordination with Marcel Reid and the Whistleblowers Summit, an annual event in Washington D.C.. 

Join Marti this evening as she hosts Lisa Belanger, a Massachusetts attorney who waged a massive battle over the seizing of and, abduction of her father in an unwarranted guardianship.  Marvin Siegel was targeted for abduction by another attorney when he retired. Why?  Marvin had an estate worth about 8 million. That of course has been drained almost to the bare penny–the exact remaining amount is still not known–absorbed by his own privately retained attorney, predatory attorney fiduciaries (guardians, conservators, GALs) other attorneys, predatory guardians and anyone else who could get their fingers in the pie. 

As a result of challenging other attorneys for their misconduct, and for committing well documented fraud aided and abetted by the presiding judges, on February 1, 2021, Lisa was  given a two year “suspension” from the State of Massachusetts Bar–which is on appeal & being evaded by the Full Bench of the Massachusetts highest court.

The blatant criminal enterprise of elder exploitation and estate theft is running openly across the country.  With the facilitation of clerks, hearing examiners and actual judges of the so-called “law”, the elderly are hunted, abducted and robbed blind by professional predators.  

Marvin Siegel was an honorable man who was preyed upon by his own colleagues. 

Loss of Legal Capacity: How we turned the elderly into “things” “units” and “merchandise”

Leave a comment

By Marti Oakley

Let me ask you: Have you heard even one attorney or probate hearing examiner ever refer to the right and preservation of legal capacity for any of the elderly men or women who are targeted, kidnapped and imprisoned in the guardianship racket? Have you heard any probate examiner say they will consider the least restrictive alternative structure for protecting the lives of those targeted for estate theft and exploitation, and then actually follow through with that? No? There is a reason for that. The probate examiner, ministerial clerk, or magistrate is involved heavily in the guardianship racket.

All the while, our elected officials feign disbelief, claim they had no idea what was happening, insist it must be an isolated situation, that no one told them this was happening, and then claim they will look into it and get back to you. They won’t and they don’t. They all know to a greater degree than you or I do exactly what is happening and yet sit silently doing nothing to prevent and stop this system of human trafficking altogether.

“Legal capacity is a human right, “a social and legal status accorded independent of a person’s particular capabilities. Whether an individual has the cognitive ability to understand and appreciate consequences of her decisions—the traditional threshold of the common law—is simply not determinative of whether she has legal capacity. Even if she does not possess those decision-making abilities, she cannot be stripped of her legal capacity.” [1]

In probate tribunals, the living, breathing, man or woman suffers a civil death. These victims are summarily stripped of their identity. Effectively commodified, they lose all rights including, where they choose to live, what medical treatments they do or do not, want. They lose the right to freely associate with family and friends and are stored in a warehouse called a “nursing” home. Most are not allowed phones or any other means of outside contact. Although statutes in every state claim that isolation should be a last resort, in virtually every case it is the first action taken by the predator guardian. And no one says a word about this!

In addition to the loss of legal capacity the victim has also lost the right to and recognition of, “legal agency”. Once in grip of the probate tribunal and their associated lawyers and professional predatory guardians, the loss of legal capacity is complete. They lose all rights to access and control their own assets and may not enter into contracts of any kind or make any decisions regarding their own assets and property.

A number of human rights theorists further break down legal capacity into two parts: “legal status,” which is the ability to hold rights that the state must recognize, and “legal agency,” which is the ability to have one’s decisions recognized by the law. Both of these rights are summarily dismissed and rendered moot in the human trafficking system of guardianship

It just gets worse

So why are they using the term “best interests” and using that as a means and a reason to discard pre-standing legal instruments to determine what the victim intended or wanted? And why are probate examiners allowed to discard these legal instruments that state specifically what the victim would want if these situations occurred? Why aren’t they using a best interpretation of the will and preferences? Why? Because its difficult to steal an estate if you are forced to consider what the victim wanted as opposed to what the guardians want.

Yet everyday across the country, individuals are never informed that they have a right to their legal capacity. Using contrived incapacitation or mental competency as a metric to deprive individuals of their rights to make their own decisions and to be recognized as a living, breathing man or woman, the right to legal capacity is summarily disregarded. This is a major deprivation of rights under US Code 242. [2] It is also a declaration of civil death. You don’t exist. You died, but just haven’t stopped breathing yet.

Here in the US, probate tribunals were established specifically to avoid the constitution and any rights associated with that document. These are not courts of law. These are specially designed tribunals created to allow the unfettered theft of estates and ordinary assets by operating outside of the common law and any rights you thought you had. You have no rights, no protection from these predators and can be subject to probate facilitated kidnapping and imprisonment whenever one of these predators decides you have something they want. Its a system set up for easy pickings for the professional predators, and few, if any, penalties for them.

The activity of professional predatory guardians goes unchecked by the tribunal.

These tribunals were created supposedly because common law, civil and criminal courts, were overloaded with cases so a tertiary system (the tribunal system) had to be created to relieve the stress on actual courts of law. But who in their right mind sets up an alternative tribunal system and then fails to adequately fund it to allow for oversight?

Hearings are held many times without notice to the victim. Many elderly, if they are even allowed to attend hearings, do so without an attorney. There is no due process afforded in these tribunals, no right to defend yourself, no right to present evidence contradicting the charges against you by immoral attorneys and their predator friends, the guardians.

If they are allowed to attend, and, if they have their own attorney familiar to them, that person will be dismissed by the examiner. Then an attorney will be appointed for them that can be depended upon not to interfer with what has been agreed to before your appearance in the tribunal so that the theft of the estate can begin, unimpeded. The tribunal will many times fire a family attorney and appoint one who can be depended upon not to interfer with the plans already agreed to by the tribunal and the predatory guardians and their attorneys. The fix is in. No one is allowed to intervene who is not part of the criminal racket that is now fully operational.

If all else fails, the victim will be subjected to massive doses of pyschotropic drugs rendering them not only dysfunctional, but appearing to be delirious. Nothing is off limits when these predators decide that the victims’ assets should belong to them. In this condition they are summarily judged to be “incapacitated” or “incompetent”. Everyone in that tribunal knows exactly what is going on, including the victim.

It is seldom, if ever, that a victim of this predatory system is able to challenge the predator in the legal system. Isolated, traumatized, and many times chemically restrained to keep them subdued, victims are unable to assert their legal capacity and demand to be set free. This is no accident.

The elderly are being hunted by predators who do not care what happens to them. Isolated from family, friends and even religious connections, they are sequestered away from everyone. Isolated, traumatized and reduced to a commodity to be exploited and abused, they begin to wither, eventually succumbing to a miserable death at the hands of unspeakable monsters.

Guardians, attorneys and probate examiners: These are the predators among us who prey on other human beings.

We have two guests this evening.  Our friends in Australia return to follow up on past broadcasts and the events that have resulted from speaking out.

Mr. D, who reported on the abuses at a nursing home supposedly established to serve those of the Jewish faith, is facing charges for revealing publicly what is transpiring in these gulags for the aged.  Mr. D is facing charges for making supposed “anti-semetic remarks” to a man who is Catholic.  Mr. D is himself, Jewish.  This has all the markings of a concocted excuse to target, intimidate and threaten him. This is so ludicrous that I cannot believe it is actually taking place, but it is.

2nd half

Mia returns to talk about dementia,  What are the signs?  What can you do?  Are dementia-like symptoms the result of psychotropic drugging meant to cause the victim to appear to be suffering from dementia, when actually they are not?  We know these deadly drugs are widely used here in the US as chemical restraints, and produce dementia like symptoms.  Apparently, Australia has followed suit.

Minnesota Protecting the Professional Predators in Guardianship

2 Comments

Marti Oakley

 

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

 

 

There is no Constitutional provision for negating of law into unlawful or illegal statutes.

The only possible way to rectify this assault on the elderly and other vulnerable men and women who have been declared to have suffered a civil death at the hands of these civil tribunals, is to abolish them altogether.

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

The elderly in Minnesota, as they are across the country, have been, and are, being targeted for exploitation by professional, for-profit guardians. Guardianship has been described as the fastest growing cottage industry in the country. The trafficking of the elderly through the probate system has allowed the theft of estates and the accompanying isolation and abuse of the targeted individual. As a result, the greatest transfer of wealth in this country, is not from the rich to the poor, but rather, from the elderly to professional predators who game this system for profit. It is aledged that 5-10 billion is stolen annually from the elderly by these predators. Generational wealth in the form of inheritance is being stolen from intended heirs.

Its no Different in Minnesota

Minnesota government at all levels has allowed a predatory, for profit system to flourish and, has even colluded with those who profit from the trafficking through a civil tribunal system in order to facilitate the kidnapping, isolation and financial exploitation of the elderly, the disabled and other vulnerable men and women. Allegedly, many of our legislators are connected through business associations to the most virulent of these predators. The business of trafficking the elderly for profit has become so lucrative that large fiduciary corporations who profit from this activity have sprung up across the state.

Probate “courts” are civil tribunals; they are not courts of law, nor are they courts of record. Probate was to become active only upon presentation of the death certificate, and then only to determine if the estate was testate or intestate. (With a will, or without one) The only duty of probate was to determine the distribution of assets to the appropriate heirs. The probate examiner was to have only one clear purpose; fact finding. This was extended to include guardianship and conservator ship of the living man or woman. As it is used today, either of these acts against the living man or woman, causes the civil death of that man or woman. The granting of guardianship petitions is the de facto death certificate.

Sec. 11. Probate jurisdiction.

Original jurisdiction in law and equity for the administration of the estates of deceased persons and all guardianship and incompetency proceedings, including jurisdiction over the administration of trust estates and for the determination of taxes contingent upon death, shall be provided by law.

TENNESSEE COURTS OK’s HIDING LEGAL & FINANCIAL DOCS

Attorneys & Fiduciaries hid Legal, Accounting, Securities and other Records from Trustees

Nashville, Tennessee­­ | Team Reporting by SPF

Tennessee is now the only the only state in the nation that allows attorneys and financial principals to hide and destroy legal and financial records from others involved in a legal and financial transaction.

Tennessee’s appeals court has upheld a lower-court ruling in a breach of fiduciary duty case involving the accountings for an estate out of Williamson County. The ruling wipes out centuries of black-letter law and makes it legal in Tennessee for attorneys, bankers, brokers, realtors and other fiduciaries to hide legal and financial records from clients, beneficiaries—and the courts.

Williamson County Tennessee Judge James Martin III

The original ruling was made by Judge James G. Martin in a claim involving the accounting for an estate and trusts based in the small town of Leiper’s Fork.

At the federal level, and in all other states, if an attorney or fiduciary hides or destroys legal and financial records, or hides records from their client-beneficiaries, it is considered a breach of fiduciary duty, fraud and/or obstruction of justice.

The ruling from Tennessee’s courts is a seismic shift in their laws and alters what people can expect from the legal and financial professionals they employ—and are subject to—when doing business in the Volunteer state.

A DRILL-DOWN: BIG NAMES TIED TO A SMALL CASE

The case was a simple one with a common theme: The widow of a Tennessee man wanted more money than she had agreed to when she signed the pre-nuptial with her spouse. To get more money, the widow teamed up with her attorney to hide and destroy the records of those assets from the man’s sons, who were trustees and beneficiaries of the estate.

Court records show that the estate itself was relatively small, with less than $200,000 subject to probate. (Many of the family’s assets had been placed into trusts.) More

Caring for Elders: Heartbreak and Guardian Abuse

Posted: September 15, 2019 at 10:12 am   /   by   /

The elderly in American society shouldn’t have to plan for the loss of their rights and their estates in their old age. But the current guardianship system threatens the retired community with just that.

Guardian abuse came about from a broken system. States often provide guardians for when the elderly and incapacitated need outside care. County or state courts appoint them to take care of their wards either personally or financially.

But the system failed thousands of people by allowing dishonest people and corrupt politicians to handle guardianship. Public guardians cut off wards from communication with their families, charge massive fees, and in some cases, cause the death of their wards.

A System Motivated By Greed

Not all guardians commit these atrocities. However, more and more victims report guardian abuse every day.

“It’s nothing personal, it’s all about the money,” says Charlie Pascal, whose mother-in-law was a victim. “That’s what I tell all the victims. You have to get past it.”

The National Association to Stop Guardian Abuse (NASGA) writes that guardianship laws threaten “the health and wealth to our elderly and disabled citizens.” Director Elaine Renoire said that while people are working to pass laws, “legislation is slow moving, so we’re still at it.”

Guardianships For No Reason

The system supposedly helps those that need it. But what happens when those that don’t get caught?

When Mary Whitten and her sister, Cos Skaife, dealt with their uncle’s guardianship in the State of Pennsylvania, they had no idea how much was involved. The two collected horror stories of wards over-medicated and isolated from their families by unscrupulous guardians.

Updated Open Letter to MI AG Dana Nessel to include developments in Wayne, Macomb, Washtenaw and St. Clair Counties.

Please share widely.

“During your campaign, you pledged that “As AG, I will increase resources to defend seniors from neglect, abuse, and exploitation. I’ll ensure that unsafe assisted living facilities and in-home care providers are stripped of their licenses, issue scam notifications for public awareness, and vigorously prosecute cases of Medicaid fraud.”

It seems this particular promise came with conditions that did not include anyone other than allegedly abusive family members or low-level nursing home employees such as CNAs.

Clearly, with regards to this issue, you are just another corrupt politician.”

Open letter to Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel

Ms. Nessel,

In 2018, as you were running for Michigan Attorney General, I was an award-winning investigative journalist, member of the LGBTQ community and Democrat. Had I also been a resident of Michigan, I would have cast an enthusiastic vote for both you and Governor Gretchen Whitmer. This was not because of my political and social backgrounds.

I’ve interviewed politicians, lines of them. All of them parroted whatever talking points they thought my newspaper’s readers wanted to hear. The post-election reality was, as expected, entirely different.

You ran a campaign that seemed to be based on genuine sincerity rather than expedient politics.
“It’s just a basic belief that it’s never the wrong time to fight for justice,” you said. “It’s never the wrong time to fight for what’s right, and that there are so many people out there clamoring for representation, clamoring to have their voices heard, clamoring for recognition of their rights and equal dignity, just as human beings.”

Having spent my career, driven by the same ideology, your promises resonated with me as much as they clearly did with Michigan’s voters who included the voiceless.

But the post-election reality is that you have not only broken that promise, but actively shielded the alleged perpetrators of some of the most horrific and repugnant crimes and flagrant abuses of civil and human rights in Michigan’s history. More

A Michigan court tasked with protecting its most vulnerable citizens has become home to a roiling controversy charging abuse, exploitation, robbery and neglect.

“Get me the hell out of here!”

It was a Saturday evening on Thanksgiving weekend, 2018, and Carolyn was sobbing bitterly in the living room of an unassuming four-bedroom bungalow on Leslie Street in the Detroit suburb of Oak Park.

The home was one of a myriad of unlicensed small group facilities across Michigan’s Oakland, Wayne and Genesee Counties in which adults and developmentally disabled individuals have been placed after being declared an “incapacitated ward” by Oakland County Probate Court Judges, Jennifer Callaghan, Linda Hallmark, Daniel A. O’Brien and Chief Judge Kathleen Ryan.

Carolyn, 64, who like her two roommates, Rita and Mary, asked to keep her last name private, had been moved into the facility by her court-appointed guardian and former Oakland County Public Administrator John Yun.

The three women told this investigation that they had been alone since the previous Wednesday, when all staff left for the Thanksgiving holiday. On their way out, someone had wrapped a large chain around the handles of the kitchen’s refrigerator/freezer combo unit and padlocked them shut. More

A Michigan court tasked with protecting its most vulnerable citizens has become home to a roiling controversy charging abuse, exploitation, robbery and neglect.

By Gretchen Rachel Hammond 

In the frigid, early morning of Monday, March 25, 2019, Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel held a press conference announcing a task force primarily charged with reforming a court system rooted in medieval English law.

According to state and national activists, it’s a system that has been left unchecked for decades and is now so broken that it has led to unprecedented judicial overreach and the eradication of the constitutional, civil and human rights of thousands of Americans who have suffered from resulting neglect, isolation, abuse, torture and theft on a massive scale, allegedly at the hands of the same individuals assigned to protect them.

Both in Michigan and nationwide, the system is called “guardianship” and/or “conservatorship.” Once assigned to an individual that a probate or family court judge declares “legally incapacitated” and unable to manage their own affairs, often a complete stranger in the form of a court-appointed guardian or conservator assumes control over every aspect of that person’s life.

Every last possession, penny and decision is handed over to one of Michigan’s professional guardians and conservators culled from a pool of county public administrators, estate and probate attorneys or private guardianship companies.

In as little as a year, wards have been rendered completely indigent and reliant upon social services and benefits such as Medicaid. Their homes are gone, as are their savings accounts, IRAs, investment accounts, cars, personal belongings, keepsakes, heirlooms, jewelry and even their clothing. Every dollar of their social security, disability income or pensions falls under the control of their guardians with the exception of an allowance as low as $60 per month.

Inevitably, it’s the developmentally disabled and exponentially growing senior populations who are the most affected not only in Michigan but nationwide. Advocates for both groups claim that guardianship, by design, results in a “civil death” for those who are subjected to it and that, although free from any charges of wrongdoing, a person under guardianship has less rights than an imprisoned felon.

Pro-guardianship organizations claim such statements are histrionic; that a guardian has simply assumed the rights of an incapacitated individual, also called a “ward,” as a protective barrier against those who would exploit them. More

Old Age Seen as Justification for Forcing Woman onto Hospice

Leave a comment

By Terri LaPoint

August 23, 2019

The admission sounded like something out of “Logan’s Run” or other dystopian sci-fi movie, not an explanation one would expect to hear from legal associates. Nancy Scott and others who joined her in a peaceful prayer vigil for her mother’s life on Tuesday, August 20, were stunned when representatives from the court-appointed guardian’s office explained that the reason that retired Alabama schoolteacher Marian Leonard was on hospice was because she was old.

According to Medicare.gov, hospice care is supposed to be for people who are certified by a hospice doctor and the patient’s regular doctor that they are terminally ill with a “life expectancy of 6 months or less.” Hospice care is palliative, or “comfort” care, rather than curative care, and it is supposed to be a choice that the patient makes, not a decision thrust upon them without their consent.

That is not what has happened with Marian Leonard. When the state seized guardianship of Mrs. Leonard in February 2018 at the request of St. Vincent’s Hospital and the Department of Human Resources (DHR), she was forced into a nursing home, Diversicare of Riverchase, and forced onto hospice care, against her will and that of her designated Power of Attorney, her daughter Nancy Scott.

Daughter of Retired Alabama Schoolteacher: “They’re Killing My Mother”

4 Comments

By Terri LaPoint

All that Nancy Scott has wanted was for her mother, retired Alabama schoolteacher Marian Leonard, to be able to live out her final years surrounded by the love and support of her family. Nancy never dreamed that such a simple wish could be thwarted by lawyers and judges and doctors. Now, it appears that time has run out for her to get her mother closer to her home in the Wiregrass area of southern Alabama.

A Hospice staff member called Nancy Scott Wednesday morning and told her that she needs to return to Birmingham as soon as possible, because the end is near.

A year and a half ago, retired Alabama schoolteacher Marian Leonard was taken from her family, placed under state guardianship, and forced onto Hospice, all against her will.

See story here:

Marian Leonard assigned her daughter Power of Attorney, but all of her documents were set aside by probate judge Alan King. She is in solitary confinement, though she has committed no crime. See story: More

Hear how they were both tricked into believing hospice was here to help and how quickly he was put into a coma against specific directions. Liz is also the founder of the facebook group Murdered by hospice that is growing daily.

The Hospice we once knew to be compassionate and caring and took care of loved ones in their last months or days of life is no longer that hospice in most cases. Unsuspecting people’s life are being shortened by hospice with opioids, antipsychotics drugs resulting in starvation and dehydration and leaving behind families who are in shock having witnessed their death and powerless to save them.

It is our intent to inform people about the potential dangers, terminology and red flags of the current hospice. Stealth Euthanasia is happening across the country as elderly and disabled are being targeted for early death and deemed unworthy of life. You have the right to question doctors decisions, refuse drugs, be a part of “the plan” and/or refuse hospice altogether. Never accept what you are being told without verifying.

How bad does the guardian-for-profit system have to become before we stop this protected racket of human trafficking of the elderly by these predatory vultures?  The very idea that anyone has to flee this country to escape being trafficked in this system is unthinkable.

Join us this evening as former Minnesota resident Joanne Bougalis, tells of her mother’s capture by a professional guardian and the subsequent deterioration in her mothers’, Katherine Bougalis, health and psychological conditions that resulted from being unnecessarily institutionalized, by the guardian, and forcibly drugged with Ativan and Seroquel.  After several attempts to free her mother from the guardianship which were of course rejected by the court which appears to be the protection arm of this dirty business, Joanne and her mother fled the country and are living safely and happily in Greece.  Katherine’s assets which were sizable are steadily being accessed by profiteers even as she is denied any access to those same assets.  While still living in Minnesota a hearing for Katherine was scheduled. She was also made unavailable for her own hearing by the guardian after a doctor’s appointment was scheduled conveniently for the same time as the hearing.

Fleeing America

The guardian has been made aware in writing three years in a row where his ward is located. He continues to fraudulently report her missing and her whereabouts unknown in his annual reports. He ignores requests to step down claiming his position is supported by the Judge. He was notified both by Katherine’s son and by Social Security of her whereabouts. He took specific steps to delay her social security, and took no steps to provide living and medical expenses for his ward, although it appears from reports the guardian is still paying (someone’s) medical expenses.

Having been stripped of all her rights, via the designation of “ward” of the state and suffering a “civil death”, could Katherine now be viewed as escaped human property? Apparently so! As her owner of record continues to bill her estate each year!

Australia: Trafficking the Elderly For Profit Is Rampant

I am my mother’s full time primary carer, executor and trustee of her estate, power of attorney, and health advocate. I had arranged a two week respite at a local aged care facility between 14 February 2018 and 28 February 2018.

On Monday 26 February 2018 I had lunch with my mother at the facility and as we parted I told her that I would see her in 2 days to bring her home. The next day I called to check in on my mum only to be told by a staff member that my mother had left of her own volition, they were not obligated to answer any questions and if I wanted to speak to the solicitors they could help with their phone number, did I want it?

In short, I have not seen my mother since which is now nearly 18 months ago. I have no idea as to her whereabouts nor do I have a clue as to her well being. My mother has two progressive terminal illnesses namely Parkinson’s and Lewy Bodies Dementia. The last time I saw her she weighed 39 kilos, had a urinary tract infection and was delirious. These third party interlopers say that my mother has legal capacity, which they believe is sufficient legalese to trump the definition of medical capacity.

(Note: A urinary tract infection can often times cause delirium in older people, whether mistakenly or for other motives, misdiagnosed as dementia. It can also increase symptoms of dementia.)

I informed the local police that my mother was kidnapped however, the police have refused to assist by claiming – ‘this is a civil matter’. More

Michigan nursing home sued for imprisoning and ransoming woman

Mimi Brun and her mother, Virginia Wahab. Brun filed a lawsuit alleging a nursing home abused its guardianship of her mother due to an unpaid debt.

Mimi Brun and her mother, Virginia Wahab

A number of studies have found that the greatest fear expressed by senior citizens, a demographic that’s exponentially growing in number in this country, is not death but the eradication of their independence if they are forced to live in a nursing facility. According to a lawsuit filed on May 8, that fear became reality for a vital and healthy Detroit-area woman, Virginia “Jean” Wahab, who spent two years falsely imprisoned in a Waterford, Michigan, nursing home owned by Lourdes, Inc., and sponsored by the Dominican Sisters of Peace religious order. The home demanded payment of what amounted to a ransom of $25,000 to release Wahab from the facility.

“Mom was a fearless, independent woman before Lourdes took control of her,” Wahab’s daughter and caregiver Mimi Brun said. “When I finally got her out of there, it took me a long time to wean her off all the unnecessary anti-psychotic and anti-depressive drugs they had been giving her.”

Brun is the plaintiff in the lawsuit, which claims her mother was subject to false imprisonment, negligence, breach of contract, malicious prosecution, abuse of court process, and the intentional infliction of emotional distress. Filed in the Oakland County Circuit Court, the complaint is a first for Michigan and comes on the heels of Attorney General Dana Nessel’s creation of an Elder Abuse Task Force.

Brun said that although her mother had been living alone before her ordeal began in 2016, by the time she was able to secure Wahab’s release after a protracted legal battle, “She couldn’t stand up. She was terrified of being locked in a room and of someone coming to take her back to Lourdes.”

Before Wahab passed away at the end of April, mother and daughter were finally able to spend a precious few months together after having been kept apart by a court order obtained by Lourdes that severed Brun’s visitation rights.

Short-term rehab to long-term guardianship

According to the complaint, the family’s problems began in February 2016, when Wahab was admitted to Lourdes Senior Community, a $21 million nonprofit organization housing 250 residents at four facilities, for short-term rehabilitation following a recommendation from her doctor. By April 2016, Wahab’s insurance company, Health Alliance Plan, had terminated Wahab’s Medicare benefits at Lourdes, stating that she needed no further services or medication and was “medically stable for discharge.”

Extraordinary Rendition: An Act of War on America’s Seniors

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

We should have taken a lesson; we should have paid attention because we all know that what the government gets away with in other places will soon be brought home and visited upon us. So it is with what is referred to as “extraordinary rendition”. ( explanation provided below) Now this same methodology is used to cull and and disappear senior citizens. No crime has been committed. No evidence is produced to substantiate the capture, imprisonment, robbing, and eventual serendipitous deaths of America’s senior citizens.

The Rendering of America’s Seniors

We have a system of extraordinary rendition occurring right here at home and utilized to traffic and cull senior citizens. But in this system it isn’t the military or CIA who are taking prisoners. It is attorney’s, predatory for-profit guardians, Adult Protective Services and other “stakeholders” who have been given the green light to capture, isolate, psychologically torture, forcibly medicate, rob and eventually end the lives of seniors. And these prisoners of guardianship are held in secret locations; the floating prisons and black ops sites now replaced with “nursing homes”, “hospice” and of course hospitals where they can languish for years as insurance and medicare is exploited.

As no crime has been committed by the elder that is targeted, that would activate civil or criminal courts, the probate system was constructed to treat them as though some nonchargeable crime had occurred. In this system they have no rights, and are treated worse than a felon with even fewer options.

Every day these predators kidnap unsuspecting elders, snatching them from their homes, from hospitals and from their families, friends and others. Their crime? Usually just aging with assets that the predators have decided should belong to them. We don’t call the elderly prisoners of war, we call them wards of the state. But they are prisoners none-the-less. And even though statutes supposedly restrict isolation, forced medication, and abuse, prisoners of the guardianship system are immediately isolated. No reason needed other than the predator ordered it. Medications are forced on the elderly, and many are left in such neglect and despair that they quickly deteriorate mentally from these things and the forced isolation. Many families have no idea where their family member is being held prisoner.

In Australia…. an immediate gag order is placed on family members to prevent them from speaking out about the abuses conducted under the protection of Tribunal hearings.  To violate that order, will see the police kicking in your door, filing false charges against you only to have them drop the charges because they have no evidence of wrong doing. But defending yourself from false charges can cost thousands of dollars, your job and have major repercussions.

Sound familiar America??

Join us this evening as we welcome another member of   Australian Association to Stop Guardian & Administrative Abuse.

Louise joins us to tell the story of how her grand parents were stolen by one predatory social worker and how that same worker has numerous other families she has preyed upon in Queensland, Australia.  Gaming the system for profit, this worker targets, captures and monetizes elderly family members and immediately begins to avail herself of assets.  Queensland authorities are fully aware of the trafficking of the elderly, and cooperate fully in the threatening, harassment, and intimidation of family members who fight back.

Sadly, Queensland has the highest volume of elder abuse cases perpetrated by social workers, guardians and trustee’s.  Police retribution and abuse is shocking and continuing without being investigated.  This one particular social worker continues to sign over elderly  victims in the hospital with urgent interim Orders for Tribunal Hearings and the local police help cover up her activities.

GUARDIANS TAKE TOTAL CONTROL: ISOLATE, MEDICATE, LIQUIDATE: The Tragic End of Marvin Siegel’s Life

Leave a comment

FROM OUR APRIL 1, 2019 PRINTED EDITION:

by Lonnie Brennan

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

“They killed him,” Marvin Siegel’s daughter Lisa Siegel Belanger wrote in a text. She followed up to explain that six years of round-the-clock captivity in his own home and in various medical facilities, together with forced drugging and morphine, lack of proper care and the ability for his family to interact with him and help with decisions, accelerated her father’s death.

As we previously reported in this paper through a multi-part series of articles, including a personal account by Lisa, six years ago her father was taken from his Boxford, Mass. home via ambulance at the direction of a visiting nurse, and  was shortly thereafter placed in a psychiatric facility, forced on drugs, and then, while in the facility, signed over control of his estate to what Lisa detailed as predatory lawyers. That list of “predators” is long, and despite many trips to court to fight them, the lawyers continued to prevail.

Yes, Sometimes It IS All About the Money

At the time of his taking, Mr. Siegel’s known assets exceeded $6 million. During the past six years, attorneys drew off more than $4 million in what they termed as caring for the senior. A large chunk of that money was spent on round-the-clock home health care. But the numbers included more, much more.

Indeed, a review of the finances showed certain attorneys drawing tens of thousands of dollars and more, quarterly from the estate, with some racking up more than $200,000 in billing, and at attorney rates over a wide range, including some at more than $450 per hour.

For their fees they answered e-mails from one another, paid Mr. Siegel’s bills, ensured that he had his trash removed, the utilities bills paid, grass mowed, repairs made, and all the normal things to keep a household going.

With the signing over of his estate, Mr. Siegel lost all control and was appointed a guardian and other lawyers who managed his affairs. He was force-drugged without his knowledge to keep him complacent, and he began a long, slow decline, according to multiple court documents and written and oral testimony and writings by some of his family members.
