There is currently an act before the Massachusetts Legislature to establish the Office of Adult Guardianship and Decisional Support Services. (S.1177/H3027). The purpose of the bill is to provide guardianship services to “unbefriended” people who are unable to manage their affairs.

Danny Tate will join the show as co-host at least once a month.  We will be covering guardian abuse, conservator abuse, corrupt courts and judges and whatever else pops up that needs to be talked about. 

We cannot continue to go back to the same organizations, political operatives and “stakeholders” who created and facilitate this system of human trafficking for profit and expect them to change it.  We need new ideas, fresh approaches and individuals willing to work as a team to effect a change. 

We have seen several supposed corrective bills both state and federal that do nothing to protect individuals from the predators that access this system, that do nothing but further secure this system.  We need ideas, input, and an end to this predatory system.  We are up against a well funded and well connected system that is nothing less than organized crime.  Its up to us to change it!

We will be taking calls during the 2nd hour of this show if you have questions, comments or suggestions on how to proceed.

ISOLATE, MEDICATE, LIQUIDATE: How to Fleece a Senior

PART 2 – UPDATE NOTES

Warning to Seniors: Rich or Poor, You’re Worth a LOT to Lawyers, Courts, and Service Agencies!

by Lonnie Brennan

In our prior edition, we briefly outlined how retired Boxford attorney  had established a plethora of detailed estate planning documentation with the intention of protecting his approximately $9 million estate from predators, interlopers and other nasties.

Mr. Siegel failed.

He specifically failed to consider one important fact: At any time, a gaggle of lawyers, with the aid of friendly Massachusetts judges, can almost seamlessly have an elderly gentleman declared a ward of the state, and swoop in and begin to draw off his assets.

We’ve collected quite a lot of documents since last month, with details on just some of the billings of Attorneys Brian Cuffe, Marsha Kazarosian, James Feld, and others. Billings of sometimes in excess of $200,000 per year, and collectively resulting in the draining of millions from the estate.

The beef: two of Mr. Siegel’s daughters – one a lawyer – were named by Mr. Siegel to take over the custody of his estate in the event of illness, but instead, were cast aside by the courts, and others were given full control.

To the right, a few of the photographs printed here show the drilling of Mr. Siegel’s safety deposit box, Attorney Feld counting the content’s money, Feld and Kazarosian taking a break at approximately one-third of the way going through the cash and contents, then the pair packing things up after more than 4 hours and 30 minutes of documenting the valuables.

But this opening of the box and cataloguing of the contents was just one of many measures allowed by the courts to place the assets of Mr. Siegel in the control of court-appointed guardians for Mr. Siegel.

At press time, a further appeal by Mr. Siegel’s daughters on the draining of their father’s accounts by court-appointed lawyers and others, was denied.

Most interesting, Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly announced an award for Kazarosian, complete with a video of her, alongside an article terming the daughter’s appeals too confusing and wordy to comprehend.

The despicable actions inflicted on Mr. Siegel were not just directed to draining his lifetime of accumulated wealth. In an upcoming issue we’ll provide extensive details of how the state-appointees even terminated Mr. Siegel’s regular doctors and caregivers … stay tuned.  ¨

 

Human Trafficking: Hunting the elderly, children and disabled for profit in America

“It is disingenuous to say that judges, lawyers or politicians don’t know about the trafficking of human beings through this arbitrary system of tribunals called , “family court, divorce court, probate court or any of the other unconstitutional constructs used to prey on the public at large.. They all know, whether they feign ignorance of these issues or not.”

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

uncle-samWhat is euphemistically called our “judicial system” has become the weapon of choice for estate theft, child trafficking, and the destruction of the family unit. The creation of administrative tribunals no longer alluded to as a system of laws applied equally to everyone, has been twisted into an ugly and dangerous system of corruption, persecution and prosecution of those who refuse to submit to organized and criminal government organizations, agencies and political interests. Money talks in this system, even if it is stolen from the estate of a targeted elder victim, received as a result of child trafficking through CPS, or, from the disabled who might have a trust account or who could be used as an Medicare/Medicaid ATM..

Guardianship Commission to ask for criminal investigations

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

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) – Amid tears and calls for , the Nevada Supreme Court Guardianship Commission took substantial action today.

Chief investigator Darcy Spears was there to see the unprecedented steps in fixing a broken system.

When it comes to your civil rights, being put under guardianship is worse than being sent to prison.  Those words from a judge who sits on the commission.

Plus, the state Supreme Court’s chief justice called some of what’s been going on in our guardianship system just plain crazy.

One of those crazy things is how people can be deemed incompetent by a physician’s assistant.  The same physician’s assistant whose name appears on case after case handled by private guardian April Parks.

“Later my aunt was examined by a neurologist who determined she was competent,” Brenda Ralphs told the commission, through tears.  “My aunt was victimized based on a defective document and incorrect diagnosis by an unqualified person!” More

Grabbing the Purse–The Abuse of Dorothy Luck

__________________________________________________________________

Every time I read about another abusive guardianship case, I feel ill. I cannot help but wonder why Americans are not rising up in droves and calling their representatives screaming “Stop! Enough! This is wrong on every level!”  

Mainstream Media refuses to report on this horrific crime. Why? Because the gravy train is so lucrative that no one wants it to stop….too many people are making too much money by stealing other people’s money. In the case of Dorothy Luck, she is NOT incompetent, but the judge declared her as incompetent because she refused to settle in a lawsuit and simply because he could. Dorothy describes the probate court overseen by Tarrant County Judge Steve M. King as a “well-oiled group of people who can’t seem to find a way to make money except to take it away from other people.”

In Nassau County Supreme Court in Mineola, NY, the late Judge Joel Asarch, along with Mary Giordano (elder care attorney with Franchina and Giordano in Garden City, NY) and Anne Recht, geriatric care manager (AMRecht Assoc in Plainview, NY) worked together often on a number of cases where the elderly victims were kidnapped from their homes and imprisoned against their will in nursing homes. My own mother was one of their victims. Dorothy Wilson, an innocent 87 year old woman, had her beloved home of 60 years stolen from her. She died in prison; penniless, alone and drugged with antipsychotic medication.           

American’s dirty little secret, if the public was truly aware, would understand that this abuse can happen to anyone at any time. There are thousands of these stories all over the internet. Share the stories, inform everyone you know. Help put a stop to this nightmare before it happens to you.      More

Debbie Valdez joins us from Texas to discuss the violations of rights of those disabled and the elderly.  Debbie is a “boots on the ground advocate” fighting to preserve and restore the individual rights of those targeted by the predators operating in her state.

Bio:

  • Debby Salinas Valdez:   is a parent of a young adult born with multiple disabilities.  She is founder of Texas Adults w/Autism & IDD, a parent and advocacy support group in San Antonio, Texas. 
  • She teaches legislative advocacy to parents and adults with disabilities to advocate for change in their community, or at the state and national level. 
  • She is a member in several other local and state wide organizations and committees focused on supporting persons with disabilities.
  • As a civil rights activist she primarily remains focused on reforms to the guardianship laws in preserving and protecting the rights of persons with disabilities.
  • Became a member of GRADE- the Guardianship Reform Advocates for the Disabled & Elderly. 
  • Our mission is:  When families are torn apart we are the voices of those unseen and unheard.  My goal as a member of GRADE was to protect my daughter’s civil, human and Constitutional rights.
  • I wasn’t aware at the beginning that my efforts would eventually be about my rights as a Baby Boomer where the Guardianship Industry is also gearing up to take over our lives and our assets with little to no accountability, oversight or monitoring.  It has been within my experience that those who operate this industry are better protected that those Guardianship was created to protect.

Aging Family Services threatens daughter for exposing elder abuse of war hero

3 Comments

___________________________________________________________
“Ginny complained to Theriault over and over. She emphasized that Seroquel is not approved for use in elderly patients, and Hugh was having severe adverse reactions. Theriault ignored Ginny’s complaints, just as she ignored Hugh’s welfare and his wishes.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The National Association to Stop Guardian Abuse posted a memorial for war hero,

Hugh Johnson. NASGA honored Johnson’s service in World War II and recounted the horrors of being a German prisoner of war. The memorial also recounted the greater horrors of Johnson’s last months in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Horrors of war and POW camps did not prepare Hugh for the horrors of guardianship in Wake County, North Carolina. A healthy active man who still enjoyed golf at 95, Hugh deteriorated rapidly under Guardian Cheryl Theriault of Raleigh based Aging Family Services.

Aging Family Services’ cautions “the last thing you want is for them to end up in a nursing home.” Family never imagined the nightmare Theriault’s guardianship would bring.

Theriault immediately removed Hugh from his upscale home, isolated him from family, and chemically restrained him with the anti-psychotic drug Seroquel. Five months after being taken from home, Hugh was frail, bedridden, and incontinent. His legs and feet were covered with sores that would not heal.

Denied the personal care of a loving daughter, Hugh languished at The Covington. The facility advertises “truly affordable assisted living.” Our Parents website gives The Covington 2 out of 5 stars. Daughter Ginny Johnson called it, “NASTY. NASTY.”

Comparing The Covington to his time as a POW, Hugh said, “My German captors kept me better.” Meals were missed. Rooms were filthy. Hugh suffered 28 falls, a broken rib, and his partial plate was lost.

Theriault responded by moving Hugh to Blue Ridge Nursing Home. That facility lost its eligibility for federal funding and was assessed a $4,550-a-day civil penalty for 6-weeks in spring 2012.

Geriatric Care Manager Heather Joyner of Aging Family Services so neglected Hugh that she was removed from his case. Geriatric Adult Guardianship Social Worker Karen Johnson replaced Joyner. Ginny described both Joyner and Johnson as “so, so, so HATEFUL.” More

Beverly Newman will co-host this show.

Join us for a show sure to make your blood boil! 

Gary Harvey celebrated another birthday in his room (prison cell) at St Joseph hospital.  His wife was told she could “kiss him twice on the cheek” and could “hold his hand” as long as her hand remained absolutely still…….otherwise….these special privileges would cease immediately.

Special privileges?  A wife kissing her husband? Holding his hand?  And these are special privileges?

Chemung County should be forced to register the Case of Gary Harvey as a “for profit” venture.  Gary has been a virtual cash cow for everyone who has their fingers in his case.

We have been following the tragic case of Gary and Sara Harvey for several years now.  Gary, who suffered a head injury seven years ago in his home, has been held for ransom by Chemung County, New York.  Also tapping into the case of “Gary Harvey–All for profit venture!” are numerous attorneys, probate judges and others all connected to the same law firm!  What a coincidence!

Chemung County & St. Joseph Hospital: Thanksgiving & Compassion?

4 Comments

November 23, 2012 · By Carrie K. Hutchens

Quote:

“Shame on the almighty people that gloat in having such power in the Harvey case. Did you enjoy your day? Did you give someone a hug and a smile and feel ever so good at having a chance to celebrate the family holiday with them?

Shame on the staff at St. Joseph’s hospital. May you never find yourself in the Harvey position, but you could.”

________________________________________________________

The American Clarion:

It’s Thanksgiving! The sun is shining brightly. The clouds are softly floating across the sky. Birds are singing and children are playing. Laughter touches the day as families gather for a special celebration. A day they give thanks for all the blessings in their lives, especially for being blessed with family and friends they love ever so much. Oh such a wondrous day it is, unless you happen to be Gary and Sara Harvey of New York state. In that case… well… it’s a day that gives Satan delight and the Harveys’ one more moment together lost; for no other reason than because it could be done unto them.

I’m so very impressed! NOT!

Sara Harvey made arrangements for her holiday visit with Gary, as she always does. She showed up as did the guard. However, the hospital claimed they had not been notified by the guardian and refused the visit.

(Guard does not get scheduled, unless visit is authorized.)

Of course, no one in authority could be reached. You know all those people, who were celebrating their Thanksgiving Day in whatever manner was important to them — they weren’t available. They couldn’t be reached. But… oh well… no big deal that someone dropped the ball and didn’t get the word to whomever they were to get the word to. It was, after all, only Gary and Sara Harvey anyways.

Since the guards are not scheduled without authorization, one would think someone with some authority at the hospital, might have gotten out of their “duh mode” and put two and two together. Guard is here. Guard is not scheduled without authorization. There is a history of Sara being allowed holiday visits with Gary. If still in doubt — call that on-call person that can actually make important decisions; can figure out that Sara does visit on holidays, so there must have been a mere failure to communicate the permission; and, then have the guts to give the go ahead.

St. Joseph hospital is supposed to be a hospital established by Catholic nuns. Nuns who were dedicated and full of compassion. So, tell me… where is that compassion now? More
