On November 20, 2018, the Idaho Statesman ran an article written by former U.S. Forest Service agent Pat Finnigan in response to an article written by Statesman reporter Nicole Blanchard.  The first article was written after Nicole had spent the day at my home in Emmett, Idaho.  Nicole and I talked openly about the matters she wanted to discuss.  We talked about our families, about life since I have been home—we talked about “the movement” the Bundy family has supposedly started.  We spoke about the actions of federal officers from the BLM, U.S. Forest Service, and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.  Overall, Nicole reported accurately and fairly the information she was able to write about.

A long-time former CIA official and case officer, John Kiriakou became an anti-torture whistleblower and activist when he told ABC News in December 2007 that the CIA was torturing prisoners, that torture was official U.S. government policy, and that the policy was approved by the President.  John was driven to ruin by the Justice Department because of these revelations.

More than 20 million people watched the Kavanaugh hearing.  It was almost impossible to deny the veracity of Dr. Christine Ford’s testimony.  On the other hand, Judge Kavanaugh’s testimony was filled with lies, as fact-checked by news outlets and supported by various witnesses.  While Americans and people from around the world tuned in to watch the Senate hearings, one thing is clear: we have never had a more controversial Supreme Court nominee.

Judge Violates Duty to Be Fair and Impartial

Americans who follow the news have seen and heard much about Paul Manafort’s trial.  One of the remarkable takeaways from the trial was the judge’s conduct during the trial.  United States district judge Thomas Ellis II is a 78-year-old senior judge for the eastern district of Virginia appointed by President Ronald Reagan.  His courtroom demeanor is best summarized by what he said at one point: “I am a Caesar in my own Rome.”

How to Reform the U.S. Court System

The entire U.S. legal system is one big broken dysfunctional machine.  All courts in this country are corrupt, but this post will focus mainly on the “family” courts.  There are a number of things that can be done to change the family court system as it stands right now.  The most important step is to defund the financial incentives under Title IV-D and Title IV-E of social security, which promotes the separation of children from parents.  As long as these financial incentives exist, the racketeers controlling the system will find a way to continue to defraud the American people.  As a bonus to this step, we would make sure that elderly who have contributed to social security will have these funds available for them, instead of having them raided by government agents.

Corruption in the Massachusetts Courts

The above poll was taken earlier this year.  Citizens of Massachusetts were surveyed and responded according to the amount of corruption they felt existed in their state.  Our national network of victims of corruption in the legal system encompasses people from many different states.  No states are immune—all have some level of corruption in their legal systems, but it seems that Ohio, Washington, and the People’s Republic of Massachusetts are top contenders for the gold medal.  The following is a portion of an actual petition for interlocutory relief I filed in the Massachusetts Supreme Court, which was denied by its judge-criminals.  The named attorney, Joseph L. Michaud, also a criminal, belongs in prison but is not incarcerated because of his political connections.

Corruption in the Orange County District Attorney’s Office

When Bethany Webb’s sister, Laura, was killed in a mass shooting in 2011, she couldn’t imagine things getting worse.  But then District Attorney Tony Rackauckas of Orange County, California, took the case.  In his determination to impose the death penalty over Webb’s objection, Rackauckas used jailhouse informants to elicit damning statements from the defendant, Scott Dekraai, while he was in jail.  These informant-defendant interactions violated the constitutional right to counsel since no one is allowed to interrogate defendants without their attorneys present.
