The fight to save our streets from recklessly driving cops now has a poster child.  Streetsblog’s ongoing investigation into police officers who repeatedly speed and run red lights unearthed a true sociopath in blue on Tuesday: An Upper East Side cop with 63 summonses—including 34 camera-issued speeding tickets and seven tickets issued for being caught on camera running a red light—since 2014.

The nation's attention turned to Oregon a few years ago when a group calling itself Citizens for Constitutional Freedom seized control of part of a federal wildlife refuge.  The citizens were protesting the harsh sentences given to members of the Hammond ranching family.  The Hammonds were accused of allowing fires set on their property to spread onto federal land.

The United States Legal System Oversteps Its Bounds

The recent arrest of the chief financial officer, Meng Wanzhou, of Chinese tech giant Huawei is a classic example of the United States legal system overstepping its bounds.  The CFO was released on bail in Canada, setting her up for a lengthy legal fight over extradition to the United States.  However, her arrest should never have happened in the first place.

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.

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.
