ARE FAMILIES RESPONSIBLE FOR 90% OF ALL ELDER ABUSE?

“The false impression out there blaming families and relatives for 90% of elder abuse means that guardians can protect their own paychecks by maligning families in court, which they often do.   It also means that the public is distracted away from looking at the larger entities abusing the elderly right under our noses.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Most people believe that elder abuse is all about Granny surrounded by family predators who just want to grab her money and throw her to the wolves. You’ll hear plenty of rumblings claiming that families and people closest to elders are responsible for 90 % of all elder abuse.
The National Care Planning Council is one of many who quote this figure.  The article is titled “ Perpetrators of Elder Abuse are Usually Family Members:” .  Even AARP claims that “ You’d like to think that elder financial abuse is committed mostly by strangers. You’d be wrong. In reality, it’s more likely to come at the hands of family members and caregivers”

Why does everyone blame families?

The latest 2011 study done by MetLife shows that in terms of dollars stolen from elders, families are not the most likely to steal the most dollars:  After examining three months of national news feeds, plus other data, researchers determined that businesses stole $205,243,400; Family members and friends stole $11,515,737, Strangers stole $7,612,513, and Medicaid/Medicare fraud caused the most damage–$306,105,093.)
NAPSA (National Adult Protective Services Association) is another organization that blames families for most of the elder abuse that takes place today.  Their figure again is 90%. .   Adult Protective Services investigates domestic settings.  Since most of us don’t have lawyers or financial advisors living with us at home, my guess is that these culprits have been left out of the equation.

The Silver Standard: How Do We Get Protection From The Protectors?

Finally! News you can use for seniors!

” 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

The War On The Elderly: Legal Capacity vs Mental Capacity

“Even should these often contrived diagnosis’s have any legitimacy, this is still not a valid, lawful or moral reason for unlawfully denying the victim legal standing. And as no crime has been committed, a mental incapacity should never be used as the excuse to deprive another individual of their right to speak for themselves, to retain their identity and legal standing.”

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

If protecting the elderly who might be vulnerable was truly the concern of the unconstitutional probate tribunals, every effort would be made by those hearing examiners or administrative clerks, both who attempt to claim the title of “judge” (as in a court of law”), to preserve and protect the legal standing and legal capacity of the targeted victim. Instead, these pretenders to the bench move immediately to declare the victim as dead in the law. This is referred to as a “statutory civil death”, a legal fiction created now applied to probate, to enable the theft of estate. The loss of legal capacity and standing are considered to be collateral consequences of being convicted of a crime, yet the targeted victim has committed no such crime, other than aging with assets that a professional predator has decided should belong to him/her.

Legal Capacity

Arbitrarily removing your legal standing which is necessary to preserve your rights and protections under the law (not statutes and codes) is the first step to ensure the tribunal sanctioned theft of identity and the ensuing unlawful conversion of real property and liquid assets by the predators who prey on the elderly for profit. Legal standing is necessary to preserve your legal agency (your right to act on behalf of yourself)…your right to exercise your rights and duties as a living, breathing human being. To be recognized in the law as, existing.

Becoming a “ward of the state” and by extension, guardianized, is an unconstitutional theft of your legal capacity and your legal agency.

The War on the Elderly: War Crimes Abound in Probate System

How does an individual become so detached from humanity, so lacking in compassion or empathy, so devoid of ethics or morality, that preying on other human beings without regard to the harm and suffering you are causing, become just part of your daily work? All of it done so that you could avail yourself of someone elses assets? How do you disconnect yourself so totally from the insidious activity you have involved yourself in so as to allow yourself to prey on what you now see as a simply a “thing”, a commodity?”

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

We have the ”War on Poverty”, the “War on Drugs”, and the wars against other sovereign nations that have posed no threat to us. There is also apparently a well-funded and facilitated “War on the Elderly”. As our politicians openly promote, or actively avoid the insidious programs designed to deprive elderly individuals of their identity, property and their rights, to enable the theft of estates. The result is thousands of elderly individuals are captured, isolated, abused and robbed every day of the week. It’s all perfectly “legal”. The elderly have been targeted as have been the disabled, as being an economic threat to the rest of the country. A newly defined “waste population” that must be eradicated because they can no longer produce and now are expecting their investment in Social Security and Medicare to begin the promised return on their investment.

While claiming that guardianship is to protect the vulnerable, that the elderly will be treated as ”protected” individuals, it clearly is nothing more than a system of monetizing and treating the elderly and disabled as chattel…owned movable property that can be sold, traded or otherwise disposed of at the whim of the guardians and the probate system. All of it done for no other reason than to steal the estates of those targeted. This can include real property, liquid assets, personal items of value, art work, family heirlooms, trusts, and any other thing you might have of value.

It is unfortunate that these professional predators see no value in human life; a trait that puts them into a class of a recognized sociopath. The entire system is populated by unethical attorneys willing to prey on the elderly for no other reason than access to the assets they may have, and predatory guardians who have been provided the protection in this system of human trafficking facilitated by the probate tribunals. All of it done without regard to the suffering they are causing to the individual or by extension to the family and friends who are forced to endure this criminal activity and are blocked by the tribunal from accessing courts of law and rescuing the victim. All of it to access the proceeds of someone elses life: to profit by targeting, capturing, isolating and robbing an elderly individual because stealing someone else’s identity and their estates is far easier than working for a living.

The Elder Abuse Reform Now Project

Our guest tonight is Sharon De Lobo.  Sharon produced the documentary: “The Unforgivable Truth”…the story of the theft of the family foundation ranch and funds.  The entire Mercedes K. and Chandler H. Kibbee Foundation Fund and ranch were taken by the YMCA (Young Men’s Christian Association).   Mercedes K. Kibbee wanted her ranch and her fortune to be put to good use and for her ranch to be used as a safe, happy place for disadvantaged children.  Instead, bad actors such as First Interstate Bank intervened and converted the foundation and all its assets to their own purposes in the name of the YMCA.

Quoted from the legal documents signed by Mercedes,: “I never gave permission for the foundation to be structured in such a way so as to allow its board of directors to be compiled of a majority of people who are also on the YMCA board.”.  Documents signed December 12, 2006.

From the Kibbee Foundation Board of Directors, Jay McGuiness who is the Executive Director of the Sheridan YMCA is heard at approximately 1:21 mins into the video,  responding to questioning saying, “We own it now! Every vehicle, every tool, every painting”….and he goes on.

Estate theft and theft of trusts is common place in the predatory world of elder abuse by professional people and supposedly respectable institutions and organizations.  The most common method used is to levy false charges of incapacity against the elderly individual with assets, to then guardianize the elderly individual and begin plundering the estate.  In other instances, conservators are appointed to “manage” the financial affairs of the elderly person.
