Image may contain: 1 person, smiling, selfie, closeup and indoor

Shelley Thomson is in a New Braunfels, Texas nursing home (Colonial Manor). She does not belong there and is desperate to be liberated.

Under the guise of guardianship, Texas Health and Human Services Commission took her computer, all her money and assets – and (HHSC) used her disability as an excuse to abduct her, steal her house, her cat, and move her into an abusive nursing home. Her guardian has threatened her with violence. Shelley is held prisoner with no right to leave her room, no visitors, and no exercise.

Shelley Thomson was labeled as incapacitated falsely and maliciously by the state of Texas. State guardianship fraud is a national scandal. Under the guise of protection, states target victims for their money, and treat them worse than prisoners. Shelley’s guardian has threatened her with violence and she has been drugged against her will.

If Shelley cannot pick her own psychiatrist, the court will assign their own, and they will choose the cheapest expert to rubber stamp a denial of capacity once again.

Whistleblowers! Brought to you in coordination with Marcel Reid and the Whistleblowers Summit taking place July 28-31 2020, in Washington D.C.

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

Join Marti Oakley, Coz Whitten-Skaife and Austin Gibson as we explore the magical, mystical world of corrupt judges who facilitate the theft of estates of the elderly, and who appear to have magical powers that allow them to “re-interpret” the final wishes of the deceased as laid out in their wills, trusts and other instruments. Montgomery Cty Pennsylvania courtrooms appear to operate on an overload of judges who have magical powers not available to us mere mortals.

What goes on in Montgomery Cty. Pennsylvania courtrooms? The corruption from the bench is blatant. Supposedly having far more knowledge about intended heirs and recipients of benefits from wills and trusts, one judge in particular has decided that his clairvoyant capabilities have helped him determine what the deceased really wanted as opposed to what the will says.

Having diverted art collections to city owned galleries instead of going to the college designated appears to be the result of an clairvoyant epiphany. In another instance, a judge decided that instead of intended family heirs receiving their inheritance, the funds should go to certain charities. Charities that the judge was involved in? I guess anything is possible when you are channeling the dead for profit.

And could someone explain why so many people targeted for guardianship/estate theft and then isolated in a nursing home have their heads shaved?

So many questions; so few answers.

She needed a will. A lawyer named himself the main heir to her $1.7 million estate.

MSN NEWS

Friends remembered Wilma Williams as fiercely independent, but a stroke left her in a wheelchair and reliant on hearing aides as large as headphones the day her attorney arrived with a plan to divvy up her $1.7 million estate.

The 93-year-old military widow with no children had nieces and nephews, but Bob Machen personally drafted a will that made himself her primary beneficiary and his son — a man she had never met — a possible heir as well.

Machen said the will represented the wishes of a woman who was like a sister to him and who he helped for years. He claims he watched as she affixed a scribbled signature to the document in a Fairfax County rehabilitation center on July 31, 2018.

Williams died 10 days later, and her relatives said they were stunned to eventually learn that Machen was poised to reap a $1.5 million windfall while they would receive modest bequests. They couldn’t believe the will truly represented Williams’s desires and decided to challenge it in court.

They say the case is a particularly brazen example of the financial exploitation of the elderly, a problem that is rapidly increasing as the senior population grows. The number of people aged 65 and older is projected to double between 2018 and 2060, according to government figures. Various estimates put their losses from fraud between $2.9 billion and a staggering $36.5 billion each year.

Stop Probate Fraud …Update

OHIO LAWYERS ACCUSED IN GUARDIANSHIP RACKET

A $22 million civil RICO case from Cleveland, Ohio has survived another procedural hurdle and appears headed to trial in Cuyahoga county court.

RICO stands for Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization. It was passed by congress and signed into law by President Nixon 50 years ago, in 1970. Originally designed to combat organized crime, the laws’ application has expanded to include any group profiting from an illegal activity.

JUDGE FREES TRUSTEE; MILLIONS STILL MISSING

Macomb County Probate Judge Sandra Harrison ordered the release of Fred Smith, who lives in Bruce Township, but with a stern warning that if he doesn’t account for the missing funds, he will find himself back behind bars.

PROBATE JUDGE JAILS MICHIGAN TRUSTEE

A Utica man has been confined to the Macomb County Jail for over three weeks and will spend at least two more weeks there for failing to account for millions of dollars spent from his mother’s trust fund that he controlled.

TENNESSEE ATTORNEY FACING 100+ FRAUD CHARGES

Two former clients of disbarred Hendersonville attorney Andy Allman may finally get their day in civil court after a special judge recently denied a motion to dismiss the cases.

Linda Cela of Clarksville and Erbit Navarro-Teran of Lebanon both filed complaints in Sumner County General Sessions Court against Allman nearly three years ago.

Florida Guardian Arrested for Estate Fraud, Theft, Abuse

Then, in March 2017, when he was 92, Myers was hospitalized twice with numerous health complications. He was released to a rehabilitation facility, then moved to a senior care home in Pinellas Park. There, he’d be closer to his daughter, who oversaw his affairs.

OHIO COURTS ENFORCED FRAUD; RACKETEERING SAYS SUIT

The case highlights the unexpected downsides of court-appointed adult guardianships, which are designed to help the old and the infirm manage their lives but are under fire nationwide amid allegations of neglect, abuse and financial exploitation. Those problems haven’t escaped the watchful eye of Congress, as evidenced by the recent introduction of HR 4174 to enact protections against elder abuse and neglect under guardianship.

PREDATORY GUARDIANSHIPS – Governor’s Appointee Marsha Kazarosian at Center of Alledged Retribution

PREDATORY GUARDIANSHIPS – PROBATE & FAMILY COURTS

‘Evidently $7 Million Wasn’t Enough … They Needed to Try to Destroy Me’

Attorney Lisa Siegel Belanger Now Facing Loss of Law License for ‘Exposing Racketeering Ring that Preys on Seniors’

Governor’s Appointee Marsha Kazarosian at Center of Alleged Retribution

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

by Lonnie Brennan

BOSTON − In an emotional speech before the Massachusetts Board of Bar Overseers (BBO), Attorney Lisa Siegel Belanger gave as good as she got. Using her allotted 15 minutes she called out the actions of BBO member Attorney Marsha Kazarosian and the law firm Burns & Levinson for their “fabrication” and exaggeration of charges against her as “retaliation” for her exposure of their “racketeering ring which has preyed on seniors,” including her father, Marvin H. Siegel. The BBO seeks to strip Belanger of her license to practice for two years.

Belanger noted in her speech that despite five years of her filing complaints to the BBO against Attorney Kazarosian, the BBO refused to conduct any investigation against the powerful political figure (and Mass. Gov. Charlie Baker’s high-profile appointee). She also noted that both Kazarosian and BBO Chair Jeffrey R. Martin were absent from the hearing, and that she was again stripped of the opportunity to question her accusers. She pointed out that Martin serves as partner in the firm Burns and Levenson, a firm also at the center of Belanger’s complaint. (Yes, Belanger took on some of the most connected lawyers in Massachusetts.)

With no relief from the courts for years (fighting against those she documented as preying upon seniors), Belanger finally went public. Her case as well as the systemic draining of millions from her now deceased father’s accounts have been chronicled in a series of articles in The Boston Broadside. Belanger noted that while no actions were taken against Kazarosian, and no charges were ever taken against her, everything changed when her family’s plight became public.  READ MORE HERE

Our Escape from US to Greece – Pursued by White Collar Criminals

Official Website: https://sites.google.com/view/guardianshipjoannebougalis

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

 

 ” I have a warrant out for my arrest because I saved my mother from criminals. The warrant was put out by the same judge and guardian that stole my mother’s freedom and her estate.”

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

What I am about to share with you is unbelievable, yet it is happening around the world. It is the best kept secret of white collar criminals.

I invite you to view my website below that chronicles my and my mother’s story of horrific abuse by the probate / family courts in the United States, which forced us to flee to Greece for our safety and our lives.

I helped my mother escape a fraudulent guardianship in which a judge forced her to give up all of her rights, forced her into an institution where she was drugged and isolated, and forced her to forfeit her entire estate, including her homes and companies to a corrupt guardian that is unrelated to the family. To conceal their crimes, the predators label their theft of her human and civil rights “in her best interest.” There was nothing wrong with my mother. She was simply wealthy and vulnerable due to age, becoming a widow, and trusting two of her own corrupt children. My mother and I made an extraordinary escape in 2016 and now live in exile in Greece. She is originally from Greece. We are both American and Greek citizens. Had I not taken my mother, she would not be alive today. She lost everything to guardianship; I lost everything to save her.

We left with the clothes on our backs leaving our children, grandchildren, homes and our lives behind. After months of hiding, we arrived in Greece with the help of friends, relatives, complete strangers, and the kindness of a representative at the Greek Embassy who granted us emergency passports for our safety.

Ohio Confronts Elder-Fraud 

Leave a comment

StopProbateFraud.com

October 18, 2019 —For immediate release.

Steubenville, Ohio

Team Reporting from www.stopprobatefraud.com

 

Facing the glare of the elder-fraud spotlight, Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost (left) is sending his top experts to address the problem in a  Steubenville public forum.

Titled “Protecting the Unprotected” the forum will be held from 12:30  pm to 4:00 pm on Wednesday, October 23, 2019 at the Towers Building, 500 Market Street, in the 2nd floor conference room.

Ohio has battled elder-fraud for years, and the state is again in the hot-seat due to a racketeering case brought by Dr. Mehdi Saghafi from Cleveland. A racket is a crime at both state and federal levels and can be spotted when the those billing to “fix” or “manage” a  problem are the same people that caused the problem in the first place.

Dr. Saghafi’s claim is that his family was the victim of financial exploitation when his 80-year old wife was trapped in the legal maze of a court-ordered guardianship. The family claims that once  “captured” in the court system, attorneys and accountants targeted the family’s assets and  billed the family hundreds of thousands of dollars for the ”care” of his wife.

Just months before that racketeering suit was allowed to proceed,  there was the FBI investigation of Ohio Judge Diane Vettori-Caraballo (shown   left). The judge was indicted and pled guilty to charges stemming from her theft of over $100,000 from an estate for which she was the court-appointed administrator. For more on that story, go here: https://wp.me/p9585T-gD

Ohio is not alone in the fight against fraud. Weeks ago, Michigan’s Attorney General Dana Nessel fired four of her state’s probate administrators after complaints that the attorneys had used their court-power to drain the assets of estates they controlled. See this link for  details: https://wp.me/p9585T-fH

Over the summer, Florida’s probate system made national headlines when court-appointed guardian Rebecca Fierle (right) was accused of causing the death of a man who was in her care by issuing a “Do Not Resuscitate” (DNR) order—without informing or getting the consent of the man who was “not to be resuscitated.” For more on this fraud story, go here: https://wp.me/p9585T-gt

Yost’s Steubenville event features nearly a dozen speakers including four with state-wide experience in elder-fraud investigation and prosecution: Sylvia Pla-Raith; Kevin Barbeau, CFE; Michael Kaizar, CPA CFE; Kelly Igoe, JD. The session offers residents of the region a place to meet and learn about the “red flags of fraud” from Ohio’s experts in elder financial fraud.

The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) calls fraud “theft by deceit,” and “theft with a smile and is prosecuted every day across the USA. But in cases where the “mark” or victim is an incapacitated and/or elderly person, the issues can expand from simple fraud into a RICO and civil rights cases.

“Many people don’t know that there are thousands of people in guardianships in Ohio,” says Rosanna Miller (shown right  with her father, Clair) who is a member of the advocacy group  “Ohio Coalition to End Probate Corruption” (OCEPC). The Ohio coalition is just one of nearly a dozen grass-roots groups across the United States who  fight guardianship and elder financial abuse including  NASGA,  AAAPG and VGPR.

New federal elder-care legislation (U.S. H.R. 4174) details that there are approximately 1.3 million elderly adults in the United States who have their lives controlled in a guardianship.  These vulnerable adults have amassed roughly 50 billion dollars in assets. These figures will get bigger with the aging of the “boomer” generation and the rise in life-expectancy.

The Steubenville forum is designed to help people learn how to spot and stop fraud from the best and brightest in the area of elder fraud prevention and prosecution. The speakers will detail the warning signs of elder financial exploitation and financial crimes and give attendees tools and strategies to assist victims of financial exploitation.

In addition to the state-level experts, there will be local Jefferson-County speakers as well, including Sheriff Fred J. Abdalla; Jefferson County Attorney Jane Hanlin; Marie Holt, Ericka Kirkpatrick and probate Judge Joseph Corabi.  The forum is designed to give people in the community a local contact when they need expertise in the elder financial fraud area. Q&A sessions are expected, time permitting.

The event is free but the room holds only 125 people. Please use this link to pre-register:

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.

Investigative reporter Gretchen Hammond exposes alleged massive elder abuse & Exploitation Ring Michigan probate court

massive elder abuse exposed

LOS ANGELES , CA, USA, August 26, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — INVESTIGATIVE REPORTER GRETCHEN RACHEL HAMMOND EXPOSES

ALLEGED MASSIVE ELDER ABUSE AND EXPLOITATION RING IN MIGHIGAN PROBATE COURTS

The guardianship system isn’t new; in fact, it’s rooted in medieval English law. Every US state still uses some form of the system, which, at its best, is designed to protect citizens who are no longer able to protect themselves by declaring them wards of the state. We know, of course, that the system is rarely at its best, with increasing reports of abuse cropping up nationwide, prompting Congressional calls for reform.

But the level of controversy over how guardianship cases are handled in one Detroit-area probate courtroom has reached such heights, the story reads more like Orwellian fiction than it does a model of the American experience.

An unsettling number of accusations have been leveraged against the court, citing abuse, neglect, robbery, and exploitation, often in cases that arguably didn’t merit guardianship in the first place. In as little as a year, “incapacitated wards” are stripped of the entirety of their savings and possessions and rendered completely reliant upon social services and benefits such as Medicaid. Even high-profile families, including the estates of Rosa Parks and Aretha Franklin, have been drawn into the quagmire.

Award-winning investigative journalist Gretchen Rachel Hammond spent the past 13 months independently investigating a systemic problem at the Oakland County Probate Court, which has allegedly been shielded by the highest levels of Michigan government for the past 30-some years. With the help of a forensic accountant, three Wayne State University Journalism School researchers, and thousands of corroborating documents, she has published a first-of-its-kind exploration into the court system, its four judges, four guardians, and the stories behind more than 2,200 wards.

Background:

In July 2018, Hammond engaged in a freelance, self-funded investigation to determine if alleged abuses at the Oakland County Probate Court were systemic.

Discoveries include the forced separation of families and isolation of the vulnerable; fraudulent petitions for guardianship by Adult Protective Services investigators; massive overbilling; the forced removal of individuals from their homes and the placement of them in nursing facilities or unlicensed group homes with subhuman living conditions; real estate fraud; and missing assets that number in the millions of dollars.

The investigation met with constant challenges, including threats and harassment by Oakland County Sheriff’s officers. A surreal March 12, 2019 four-hour meeting between Hammond’s team and Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel’s staff led to a new line of inquiry and discoveries of campaign ties between Nessel, Whitmer and Oakland County Probate Court Chief Judge Kathleen Ryan and her family.

Biography

Gretchen Rachel Hammond is an award-winning freelance investigative journalist based out of Chicago. Her work has won or been nominated for four successive Chicago Press Club awards, been recognized by the National Association of Lesbian and Gay Journalists (NLGJA), and covered topics such as criminal justice, abuse at ICE detention facilities, and alleged discrimination on the part of the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services leading to the unnecessary separation of children from their parents.

The Australians are back!  The last few weeks have seen major activity behind the scenes.  The first Australian Summit on trustee (guardianship) abuse and estate theft was held.  Approximately 100 victims attended and spoke.  With media, the shadow Attorney General Mr David Jantezkin in attendance, the 3 hour planned summit was extended to 5 hours to allow everyone to speak.

Highlighted at the Summit were the:

  • Physical & Psychological Isolation- Usually very quick
  • Bed side hearings
  • Victims drugged and moved without notice
  • Notice they do this when the victim is close to family and loved ones
  • Order placed to control visitations

In the midst of all this,  the Australian government tries to cover its tracks and close all the loopholes in what is an expanding police state.  Everything is being privatized including titles on property.  Even the banking royal commissioner is upset over the growing distrust of the government.  The efforts currently appear centered on property and financial interests.

We will also have several family members of victims calling in.

The Rise of the Predator Class: Systemic Elder/Guardianship Abuse by Professional Predators

Leave a comment

By: Don Bowman
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Question:
Are guardians, professionals in the legal system, and influential people in the political system stealing from wards (elderly and disabled individuals who have been placed in guardianships) and laundering the money through shell companies? Specifically, can shell companies be found by examining the April Lynn Parks court case and/or IKOR? In addition, is there a connection between the two? This document presents raw data about court-appointed guardian Parks and IKOR, an elder services franchise. Criminal wrongdoing in individual guardianship abuse cases is known. The criminal network, that runs from county courts and county Area Agencies on Aging (Adult Protective Services)
to high-level government offices, is not known. Shell companies may be one piece of the puzzle.
Facts About Shell Companies:
A shell corporation is a company with financial assets but no significant business activity.
Shell corporations don’t create products, hire employees, or generate revenue.  Rather, they store money and engage in financial transactions.  Shell corporations can be used for illegal purposes like money laundering or legitimate purposes like storing funds in the early stages of a startup. According to the research group Global Financial Integrity, the U.S. is the second easiest country to create a shell corporation in. Delaware, Nevada, and Wyoming are the most popular states for creating a shell company due to lax incorporation requirements and strict privacy laws.  Storing personal assets in a shell company makes sense for people with a large amount of wealth from investments.
The Panama Papers implicated a number of government officials and public figures in crimes ranging from tax evasion to money laundering. The investigation, which exposed the rogue offshore finance industry, showed that owners of shell companies can hide their identities from United States authorities This constitutes a “significant loophole” in the country’s ability to tackle money laundering and illicit financing. The Panama Papers may offer clues about how money is laundered after it is illegally obtained through guardianship scams.

Finally! News you can use for seniors!

From the Silver Standard’s Elder Abuse Reform Project

By Marcia Southwick

In most states, if you are deemed incapacitated by a court, it will hand your rights over to a professional or family guardian who then will make all decisions for you.  Given that state courts are backlogged, and judges are faced with stacks of papers, it’s no wonder that a tendency to treat every case with uniformity has developed.   Unfortunately, one size does not fit all, and many elders and persons with disabilities are not being treated as individuals with dignity but rather as second-class citizens without equal protection under the law—as a non-person.  The descriptions of how removal of rights has caused suffering are heartbreaking.

Now that someone (often a complete stranger) has been appointed Dictator over your life and assets, and now that this Dictator has almost no supervision and little accountability for how your assets are spent, how are you feeling about it?  Not too great.   How is the guardian feeling?  Power drunk.

Even though guardians can control every aspect of people’s lives, they aren’t monitored by outsiders.  They pay themselves out of your estate in addition to having the right to claim that anything they do is in your “best interest.”  If that means selling your house and throwing you into a lock-down unit, so be it. If your spouse of 50 years fights for your freedom, they will simply, on your behalf and “in your best interests”, get you a divorce from that pesky spouse.  If your family doesn’t like it and wages a court battle, the guardian can use YOUR money to hire a lawyer to battle back, quickly exhausting your estate. And, what are your families chances of winning if you are in one of the many jurisdictions where the judge, the guardian, who was very possibly appointed by the judge, and the guardian’s lawyer are old pals?

Whistleblower’s is presented in coordination with Marcel Reid and the annual Whistleblower’s Summit July 29, 30 and 31st in Washington, D.C.~~~

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

Our guest tonight is Lisa Belanger.  After a seven year battle to free her father from a predatory guardianship, on January 28, 2019 Lisa issued an alert that the guardians were attempting to put her father Marvin Siegel into hospice.  The message was clear…Marvin’s estate had been successfully depleted to a great degree, ( they claim there might be a balance) by the guardians and attorney’s. These same professional predators refuse to give a current accounting of where the estate stands now.

Having no further value to them, hospice was the clear choice for hastily ending his life.  Lisa was successful in stopping that effort.  but somehow his death appears to have been hastened, none the less.

Despite Lisa’s ongoing efforts, her father passed away on March 15, 2019.  But the questions remain.  Marvin’s estate had been valued at 9 million when he was taken hostage in the probate/guardian system.  What could these predators possibly have done for him over the last seven years that would have cost 9 million dollars?  He was held prisoner in his own home.  Denied contact with his own children and grandchildren until just recently, and drugged incessantly against his will.  During this time his assets were liquidated, real property re-titled to the predators, and valuable personal property simply disappeared.

So what happens when the “ward” dies?  Join us as we attempt to discover just what happens once the “ward” is deceased and can’t be used anymore to justify the theft of the estate?

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…

WHO IS DOING THEIR JOB.

The War On The Elderly: Legal Capacity vs Mental Capacity

Leave a comment

Marti Oakley

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

 

“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.

Mental Capacity

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

5 Comments

Marti Oakley

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

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.

Guardians From Hell: Investigation of systemic guardianship abuse in Northern Michigan

TABLET

The completely legal, utterly grotesque system for undermining the rights of the elderly

At 92 years old, Virginia “Jean” Wahab hadn’t lost any of the vitality and health she maintained throughout her life. She raised two daughters as a single mom and made a home for them in the Detroit suburb of Oak Park, Michigan. Wahab worked on her feet and didn’t retire from her job at a local family restaurant until she was 88.

Fiercely independent, Wahab was quite happy living at home after retirement. She had a healthy social life. She did her own grocery shopping and chores. She so rarely needed to pay a visit to a hospital that her health insurance was barely touched.

Her eldest daughter, Mimi Brun, converted to Judaism at the age of 18. She went on to become a prolific Jewish artist, who sold her work all over the world. In 2010, she began to establish art schools for children under 12 in France and then Chicago. Although Brun was estranged from her younger sister, she and her mother were extremely close. Wahab was Catholic, but Brun noted that she had the fastidious nature of a Jewish mother.

Wahab’s legal affairs were in order including a durable power of attorney she had signed in January 2016 which named Brun as a patient advocate (the handler of her medical needs) as well as giving her daughter charge of her financial affairs should she ever become incapacitated. Wahab’s home was also registered in Brun’s name in a quit claim deed signed by Wahab on Dec. 29, 2014.

The two talked on the phone every day. Brun particularly relished visits with her mother during which she would gift her a piece of art. Wahab was an eager collector of Brun’s work.

That was two years ago. Everything has changed since then. Continue reading on TABLET here!

 
1) On June 6, 2016 a petition was filed for guardianship a Waterford, MI nursing home, Lourdes Senior Community, for a back-due bill owed by a short-term rehab patient there Virginia Wahab- there is no Michigan statute which supports this.

New Documentary: The Guardians

Leave a comment

https://ppjg.files.wordpress.com/2017/10/am-top2.gif

“The Guardians,” a 1:44 minute documentary by Billie Mintz about Las Vegas’ best kept secret, will soon be released in Canada. The last one-third of the film focuses on private guardian Jared Shafer and his band of crooked Clark County Family Court Judges including William Voy, Charles Hoskin, and Jon Norheim. This riveting film, when aired by a US TV network, should trigger the FBI and DOJ into prosecuting those who, up until now, have been protected by a corrupt local political system including a police department that has ignored dozens of complaints of elder abuse and exploitation by the above named protected individuals.
Steve Miller writes internationally syndicated columns on organized crime and political corruption for AmericanMafia.com, The Vegas Voice, and the the Canada Free Press.

An Open Letter to AG Jeff Sessions: Will you protect the elderly from professional predators?

19 Comments

May 22, 2018

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

Dear Mr. Sessions:

I have been hosting an internet radio show for about eight years most of which has been dedicated to exposing the ongoing trafficking of the elderly and the disabled with no other intent than to disinherit families by seizing the accumulated assets of someone else’s life’s work by professional predators. The result of these criminal acts, are the robbed and traumatized victims and family’s and the greatest transfer of wealth ever witnessed in this country. When government studies are done such as those by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) they look at only those cases that will support the contention that it is family or friends who commit these acts, without ever alluding to or even acknowledging the massive number of cases of guardianship and conservator abuses by professionals who make their living preying on the elderly who have committed the new age crime of aging with assets.

Having called your agency numerous times, and, after hearing from numerous other individuals attempting to report to your agency the human trafficking of the elderly and disabled by predators who operate as professional “guardians”, “conservators” and “attorneys” across the country, I am appalled by your lack of action on this issue. I suppose I shouldn’t be, after all, your agency is populated by individuals who are also BAR Association members and none of this human trafficking has happened without great efforts by BAR members to pass arbitrary and unconstitutional statutes in every state that allow them to traffic the elderly and disabled without penalty. The associated professional guardians also profit handsomely from targeting elderly victims and seizing their assets. And, during this process their bank accounts, property holdings and assets of all kinds are exponentially increased as they avail themselves of every possible dime in the estate with padded billings, spurious and inflated charges of all kinds, and repeated motions in these tribunals which of course is an absolute gold mine for siphoning money off the estate.

You do know, don’t you, that the targeted victim’s estate is forced to pay for every action brought against it. I liken this to having to pay for weaving the rope they are going to hang you with.

Maybe you could explain to me:

  • How the living, breathing human being is forced to suffer a statutory civil death, equal in its legal consequences to a physical death, and then:
  • have their identity taken from them and assigned to a known predator, who now assumes and presents themselves as the victim, along with all their assets?
  • Why is it that in these tribunals, the rules of evidence do not have to be adhered to?
  • Why does the code of civil procedure not apply?
  • Why is due process never adhered to?
  • Why are ex parte hearings allowed to occur without notice to the family or the victim?
  • Why are these professional predators allowed to levy charges of all kinds against the victim and the family and friends without ever producing any evidence that the charges are in fact valid?
  • Why are they never asked for such evidence?
  • Why is no evidence allowed to be entered into the record of the tribunal refuting the claims of the predators?
  • And why is the victim forced to pay for the actions brought against them when no crime has been committed, there is no injured party and no damage to property that the predator does not own or have an interest in….yet.

Minnesota Codifies Isolation of the Elderly by Predators Gaming the System

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

Numerous bills have been presented recently here in Minnesota as a result of the nursing home scandals that rocked the state. It quickly became apparent that the only people who were unaware of this looming crisis, were our state legislators. But reading through these bills, which are legislative monstrosities that are comprised of some of the most tortured and unintelligible language imaginable, it becomes readily apparent that the bills were not written by the legislators, but rather, by interested stakeholders who profit daily from the human trafficking of the elderly.

A recent change to the Minnesota Health Care Bill of Rights, looks on the surface to be a positive change for advancing the rights of those subjected to institutional health care while the estate is robbed. At first glance, it would appear that the legislature is securing the right of patients to be free from forced isolation by professional predatory guardians and conservators. But a closer examination reveals language that allows the very predators in the system, those who prey on the elderly with the intent to profit, to continue their trafficking, unimpeded

Pending the outcome of an enforcement proceeding the health care facility may, in good faith, comply with the instructions of a guardian or conservator.”

An enforcement proceeding? Gosh, I wonder how that will turn out? I would like to see an explanation of why a conservator (this person only controls the finances of the victim) would have any excuse whatsoever, for isolating the conserved individual. Guardians on the other hand, control everything and once the individual is guardianized they become chattel property. Meaning they become moveable property and goods. More
