Missing in Southfield, Michigan: Gretchen Hammond…journalist documenting probate abuses

3 Comments

This is extremely disturbing news, EVERYONE, and a CALL TO ACTION. Below is a December 27, 2018 post about Gretchen Rachel Hammond, an American journalist who reportedly went missing in Southfield, Michigan, on or around December 20, 2018.

“I am posting on behalf of Gretchen Rachel Hammond family who are very worried about her. They have not heard from her for nearly a week and she did not come home for Christmas. They have reached out to her friends in Chicago and the folks she was working with in Detroit and they do not know where she is. Her cell phone goes to voicemail. The last time she reached out to them, she said she was heading to the library in Southfield Michigan. That was on December 20. Please reach out to me if you have any information.”

This development follows the post below by Gretchen about news of a threat she received.

If you know anything, please let us know at “The Face of Vulnerability” — https://www.facebook.com/TheFaceOfVulnerability — and we’ll forward the information to Mary Spaler who circulated the above missing person alert.

Gretchen Rachel Hammond

My source at the Probate Court reached out to me yesterday to let me know that I am now in considerable danger. They did not specify what “danger” entails: an attempt to discredit me before the story is published, the use of the Oakland County Sheriffs to concoct a reason to throw me behind bars (a tactic already used on a rather outspoken activist) or something quite worse. A physical attack was not ruled out. The point is, they have had quite enough of me and, if this were any other time, one might easily laugh it off.

My team is safe. I have managed to keep them completely anonymous. My research, that includes court documents, accounts, interviews and all relevant data, is also in trusted hands on both coasts via continually updated and mailed flash drives and I’m building alliances across the country on a daily basis.

“These are extremely powerful people,” I was told. “You have become radioactive to them so you need to do something about your security. There is a lot at stake here for a lot of people so make sure you take precautions.”

Anyone reading this has become a part of my heeding such a warning and I would ask you all to somehow ensure the following is protected via safety in numbers: My name is Gretchen Rachel Hammond. I am a journalist investigating systemic elder abuse and exploitation at the Oakland County Probate Court in Michigan. My team’s discoveries thus far have entered the realm of the horrifying. Thousands of elderly and vulnerable lives are in ruins or extinguished. Their homes have passed through the the hands of a disturbing group of people.

And I will not stop until this story is in print.

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.

Democracy vs. Oligarchy – ABUSING SENIORS

Lawyers Running Amok

Democracy vs. Oligarchy

by David Arnold

This is the third in a series of articles on democracy in the United States. The first was “The death of democracy in the Probate Court,”

The second was “We the people and accountability of lawyers,.

We have all been taught since childhood that the United States is a democracy. I used to just accept that without questioning it. However, democracy is not automatic. It is a constant struggle to make sure no individual or entity takes control of the whole government.

The United Stated has the structure of a democracy with three different branches of government. There are supposed to be checks and balances between the three branches to prevent abuse of power by any one of the three branches of government.

The tripartite system of government is commonly ascribed to the French political philosopher Baron de Montesquieu. Having three branches of government is a necessary but not sufficient condition to insure a democracy. Montesquieu pointed out an additional requirement. The personnel of the three branches must not coincide. If a single person or entity controls all three branches, this destroys the checks and balances. The government ends up being an oligarchy.

Embezzlement Unethical Standards (F.A.C.E.U.S.). F.A.C.E.U.S. began when we found ourselves in Probate Court. Many labor under the illusion courts promote justice.

The reality is, as the law is practiced today the word justice is little more than than a mask behind which court authorized embezzlement takes place. Many individuals and families find themselves in court entanglements only to discover too late not only is there no justice in sight, but the Court system itself works more like a criminal extortion racket than in the service of Justice.

Our friends at F.A.C.E.U.S..org, Luanne and Robin return to update listeners on what is happening in Colorado.  Bills are showing up at an amazing speed!  Gosh! Even the BAR Association is writing one or two!  If that didn’t make your hair stand on end, not much will!

Luanne and Robin will also talk about what they have accomplished so far and what it took to get it done.  It would appear the legislature in Colorado has gotten the message!~  This system of judicial abuse and tyranny has got to change!

Please call in during the last hour with your questions or comments.  We want to hear what you think!!

This preview of the documentary “The Economic Rape of America: Exposing America’s Secret Wealth Exchanges” reveals the economic impact of destruction to America’s families and economy as a result of probate courts and frivolous litigation. The wealth exchanges in probate courts are greater than the wealth exchanges on Wall Street. Additionally, $1.5 billion dollars a year goes for attorney fees at the expense of America’s families. According to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, America’s litigation addiction costs our economy $264 billion dollars per year making America unable to compete globally. This documentary is a must see for all Americans. America must demand probate reform so that the pillaging of estates by lawyers and non beneficiaries ends. America must wake up and demand better watch dogging of the judicial system which allows for an unfettered abuse of power. Produced and Directed by Athena Roe, J.D. of theharcompany.org in collaboration with Shaun T. Lally of Still Focus Media.
