Homeward Bound: the planned use of water as a weapon

“the planned use of water as a weapon, authorized under Section 817 of the U.S. Patriot Act. Section 817, The Expansion of the Biological Weapons Statute, is authorizing the use of toxins (poisons) and delivery systems (which is weapons terminology) apparently against citizens of the United States of America. It is the contention of this reporter that 817 is an “umbrella” statute, authorizing a number of poison projects, including, but not limited to, the water weapon.”

Driving up to the pumps, I have a distinct experience of entering  “No Man’s Land.” Gas is up over three bucks in Oregon and shows no sign of ever coming down. It strikes me that this feels like an affront, a virtual assault —that the price of gas is actually attacking my ever-diminishing financial reserves, and laying waste that green stuff which constitutes my nest egg. 

A confluence of forces are amassing at this point in time, which are keeping folks home much more than in past years. One is the price of gas. Another is the plunge of the dollar, world-wide. My intended trip to Jerusalem and points beyond will be deferred to a later date, for this reason alone. 

Other economic realities buttress the decision to stick around home plate. Job insecurity coupled with the spectre of possible home foreclosure amp up the sense of financial anxiety. The net effect of these  conditions  is that Americans are more home-bound. Like so many other Americans, I look anxiously to the political horizon to see a sign of change but see only a changing of the guard as our collective economic future marches towards a dark terminus.   More

The State of California and Failure to Protect

“A recent board meeting found the members focused on concerns about raising more revenue for the bureau, which has taken out two loans totaling over a million dollars in order to stay solvent. The bureau reported that $357,000 for the current year covered only two staff positions and that a mere $50,000 was allotted for enforcement. The minutes reflect concerns that “one big case would break the budget.”

When Janis Schock learned that her complaint of conservator wrongdoing, submitted to the California Professional Fiduciaries Bureau, had been closed without an investigation taking place, she was dumbfounded. The communication from Angela Bigelow, analyst and sole full-time employee of the Professional Fiduciary Bureau (PFB), stated that the court must first make a determination of wrongdoing before the PFB could take action. Janis Schock wasn’t so sure this was true.

As it turns out, Schock was correct.

The Professional Fiduciaries Bureau is a relatively new addition to consumer oversight agencies and is lodged in the Department of Consumer Affairs. The PFB was established by an act of law in 2006, following public outcry engendered by a 2005 Los Angeles Times series which revealed questionable practices by California conservators, who were at that time unlicensed. The bureau, as written into law, is mandated to license professional fiduciaries, to investigate complaints and, where appropriate, to refer complaints to law enforcement.  The bureau is also empowered to revoke a license based on complaints and to take action on unlicensed activity.  The Professional Fiduciaries Act defines a professional fiduciary in this manner:

“Professional fiduciary”means a person who acts as a conservator of the person, the estate, or person and estate, or guardian of the estate, or person and estate, for two or more individuals at the same time who are not related to the professional fiduciary or to each other.

Conservators are generally appointed through court proceedings when there are allegations that a person is lacking capacity; in other words, becoming forgetful or otherwise unable to handle his or her affairs.  These allegations need meet no standard of proof, which provides an opening for abuse of process.  The Government Accountability Office recently released a report citing multiple instances where a conservator had abused his powers to the detriment of the conservatee.  Several grassroots groups have sprung up to address the issue of abusive conservatorships, which are reported to be taking place countrywide.

“With a Judge issuing Restraining Orders for life saving efforts by a loving daughter, then depriving the restrained party to her legal right to a hearing, it was felt that Amalie would have a better chance with a jury than with this obviously corrupt judge.”

All documents referred to in this letter can be obtained by contacting Ms. Phelan through her personal website.  It is interesting to note that the California Professional Fiduciary Bureau has refused to acknowledge receipt of Ms. Phelan’s documents.  Refusing receipt allows them to withhold a document locator number.  No Receipt, no locator number……plausible deniability.  Damn handy system they have in California!

Amalie Phelan—RIP 080974

As a reporter, I have researched and written a number of articles detailing the unscrupulous “business practices” of conservator Melodie Z. Scott and her attorney, J. David Horspool. The articles, published in the San Bernardino County Sentinel and elsewhere, are available in the Sentinel’s archives and elsewhere on the web. This particular document shall constitute my own statement as to what transpired in the conservatorship of my mother, Dr. Amalie Phelan under the reins of Melodie Scott. While on the surface this appears to be a “civil” matter, it is anything but. As my research into her practices has indicated, Melodie Scott has been euthanizing her clients and stealing their money with the full sanction of the justice system, possibly for decades. Due to the complicity of all those assisting Scott (either by commission or omission)—Bar certified attorneys, judges, police, Adult Protective Services, the California Department of Justice and the FBI—this qualifies as a systemic violation of civil, economic and social human rights. 

Given the nature and scope of systemic complicity and the fact that cases of this nature cannot be presented to the U.S. Supreme court it is clear that there is no access to remedy or justice within U.S. domestic law. Melodie Scott does not act alone. We have a system in place which sanctions these crimes against the lives and property of U.S. citizens. I submit that my mother was systemically victimized to death. 

My mother, Dr. Amalie Phelan, first visited Attorney Horspool in the fall of 2001. My sister, Judith Phelan, had been residing with my widowed mother. After Dad died in 1997, my mother and I discovered that my sister Judith Phelan had begun stealing from the family estate, at one time valued at approximately $1 million dollars. In an effort to curtail the hemorrhaging of the estate by my sister, and reluctant to initiate criminal proceedings against her, my mother and I approached J. David Horspool, seeking a fiduciary to help handle the funds of my mother, who was in her eighties. Horspool requested payment of $5000 for his services in locating a fiduciary and was so paid.  More

The United States of America Violates International Bioweapons Treaty

FIRST, THEY CAME FOR BRADLEY MANNING

(LOS ANGELES) – While the country responds with growing alarm over torture policies first instigated against prisoners in Guantánamo, policies which now appear to be levied against  Bradley Manning, another policy violation has been overlooked by the guardians of our freedom. The U.S. press has been mum, at least up until now, on the violation of the Biological Weapons Convention by none other than the United States government.

In the rush to pass protective legislation into law following the attacks of 911, the authors of the U.S. Patriot Act amended the previous legislation regarding biological weapons. Section 817 of the U.S. Patriot Act, otherwise known as the “Expansion of the Biological Weapons Statute,” has violated the Biological Weapons Convention, an international treaty which the U.S. signed in 1974.

The Biological and Toxins Weapons Convention, also known as the BWC, was the first multilateral disarmament treaty banning the production of an entire category of weapons. It was largely considered to be a result of prolonged efforts by the international community to supplement the 1925 Geneva Protocol. More

“THIS CAN’T HAPPEN HERE”

On a quiet tree-lined street in Redlands, California, in a low, architecturally unremarkable beige building, the war has come home. Nestled behind the Redlands Police Department, the Redlands Superior Courthouse is housing a systematic and covert assault on the lives and life-savings of San Bernardino County’s elderly and disabled.
A smiling, bespectacled security officer, sporting a platinum blonde ponytail, runs the visitors through a metal detector as they enter. One walks into a lobby area, with two courtrooms off to the side: Department E1 and Department E2. Only traffic and probate are now heard in the Redlands Court. At the far end are the filing windows, where smiling and attentive clerks will retrieve files and accept court filings. In the California Superior Court system, one must pay a filing fee in order to enable the court to dismantle one’s life and estate. More

Barbara Rosen was concerned that her elderly neighbor might need some help. The two had become acquainted through Quaker meeting and Barbara was aware her friend was alone in the world and increasingly vulnerable.

Barbara offered her assistance, and ended up visiting the woman several times a week. The neighbor was grateful and for several years, Barbara Rosen paid her neighbor’s bills from the neighbor’s checkbook and exercised some oversight on her affairs. Barbara Rosen did this without charging her neighbor for these services, simply out of the goodness of her heart. More
