DISTURBING AND DISCRIMINATORY “LACK OF DIVERSITY” IN KEY POSITIONS OF PENNSYLVANIA GOVERNMENT

 LOOK WHO HOLDS   ALL THESE KEY OFFICIAL POSITIONS NOW OR JUST PREVIOUSLY..would it be odd if all these names were all Asian, Jewish or some other ethnicity? It does not look like it is Russia that is the real problem..it appears it more like John Podesta and friends! With the history of Italians and the massive amount of public corruption in this state, especially from its Judiciary..it looks like there is a huge problem in the Commonwealth.  Somebody is in violation of the Equal Employment Opportunity Act!

  1. Panella, Jack – Chairman, PA Supreme Court Judiciary Disciplinary Council
  2. Graci, Robert – Chief Counsel, Judicial Conduct Board– concealed his participation in Justice Michael Eakins campaign, dismissed the AG Complaint against him.

Federal Judges Caught Fixing Cases and a Path of Corruption to SCOTUS

Share

Last Updated May 29, 2017 : 8:10 PM EST

Even for those that have long suspected the court system is really nothing more than a legal industry, the series of events in the following  brings a whole new perspective to judicial corruption.   While similar deception is likely happening across the country, the state of Pennsylvania has very unique influence all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.   If none of the following is true, the above pictured cabal of judges surely would have offered proof to refute it, and to “preserve confidence” in the judiciary.

What started as an employment discrimination law suit in 2013, became the uncovering of a judicial cabal that has apparently been  deceiving the public about sending appeals when  required, to a full appellate court panel.  Obviously this makes it simple to rig outcomes when instead, only a few people are actually seeing the case.  Essentially they are forging names if they falsely claim that all judges listed on Orders participated in the decisions.

This became a real probability  when a Plaintiff did some investigating after District Court Judge Paul Diamond dismissed their case in 2015. It was quite obvious that Diamond was complicit with concealment of evidence by the Defendant, who is one of the largest corporations in Pennsylvania. Judge Anthony Scirica was the only appellate judge to sign the final Opinion dismissing the appeal of Diamond’s order in 2016,  pretentiously using case law he had written himself apparently for just such occasions.

But it was his denial of a request for signatures from the full 12 judge “en banc” panel to verify they had all reviewed the appeal, that was the red flag.  Sirica then  had a clerk send  a letter  saying the judge was not going to respond to a further request, which was for the law allowing him to  refuse to provide that proof.  In four years of litigation, this self-represented citizen had not been allowed in a court room and has never seen any of the above judges. They have taken it upon themselves to eliminate signature requirements and having to face the public by doing away with courtroom hearings and jury trials at their “discretion.”

Sirica, who was a Montgomery County Common Pleas judge and former State Representative,  is the Chairman of the Judicial Conduct Committee of the Judicial Conference of the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington DC. The alleged Disciplinary Council at the Third Circuit level was chaired by former Chief Justice Theodore McKee, who is also on the Conduct Committee with Scirica (and who also had the power to assign judges to appeal panels).

After a complaint against Judge Diamond  appeared to similarly have never been sent to the eleven member Disciplinary Council, a complaint against McKee was sent to Chief Justice John Roberts of SCOTUS to bypass McKee and Scirica. Although it may have been related  that McKee announced soon after that he was “stepping-down” early as Chief Justice, nothing else was done. The Plaintiff received a letter from Washington DC Administration of Courts stating they would not address any further disciplinary complaints and to go hire a lawyer. The entire system is just a three-ring circus.

Of course no lawyer was hired, but a law suit was filed in 2017 against Scirica  and six other judges involved at various levels- Diamond, Fisher, Jordan, Fuentes, McKee and Vanaskie for fraud, but it got the same treatment as every other civil rights case.  The claim was dismissed, this time citing  judicial immunity,  by Judge Sanchez.   But it is now on appeal, which should be interesting, because they are running out of cabal members to assign, as most are now defendants in this other lawsuit by the same Plaintiff.

In the particular case that started this all, the Defendant Thomas Jefferson University,  was caught concealing evidence and witnesses, which is a federal crime. The Plaintiff had applied for 50 other jobs during six years of employment with them, but was laid off after made to train someone 30 years younger. The Defendant then claimed the seven most recent jobs which were still timely enough to dispute in the case, had all coincidentally been cancelled. This was later discovered to be untrue.

Judge Paul Diamond fully assisted in the deception as the Defendant is a major Pennsylvania political lobbying entity and donor. The Plaintiff’s evidence was extremely compelling, and also included allegations that executives had taken huge bonuses while freezing pay raises, while laying off employees because of funding cuts in 2011.  There was  no way the case should have been shot down on appeal, which is when it became obvious what was happening…the appellate court is part of the sham.

The Plaintiff has been unable to get another job because to discourage employment discrimination allegations the courts deliberately refuse to seal such cases. Obviously employers now google applicants names and would be hesitant to hire someone suing their previous employers…but please read on because the rest is important to understand the history behind this cabal.

These cabal members have very sordid backgrounds. Most got appointed because of one specific politician. At least six of these “judges” accused of fixing cases all paid their way onto the bench via Senator Arlen Specter. Their history clearly shows that they did not get to where they are because of their skills. Who are these people really?

The plot gets even thicker. Federal District Court Judge Paul Diamond who tossed the discrimination case, was Senator Specter’s campaign Treasurer and close friend for decades.. That is of course how Diamond went from being an assistant DA to a Federal judge. Most of them got bumped up to the Appellate Court, and have Paul Diamond to thank for their jobs, so forget about winning an appeal against him, unless its already in the script. At a fee of $505 each, appeals are a main source of revenue for the Federal court.

Petrese Tucker as President Judge would not answer the letter of inquiry sent to her for confirmation that the judges are being randomly assigned, according to the rules. Therefore it is likely Tucker makes sure specific cases go to Diamond or one of his other appointees like Sanchez, for immediate dismissal of all pro se cases.  Diamond “somehow” was assigned another unrelated case of this same Plaintiff which he of course dismissed. He is so arrogant ( or psychopathic),  that he refused to disqualify himself even though he was a defendent in the other case.

Pennsylvania even has the rules committee tied up.  Congressman Tom Marino- the former Assistant U.S. Attorney that had to resign because convicted billionaire mobster Louis Denaples accidentally used him as a reference for a casino license. Marino then went to work for Denaples for $250,000 year- after which he was able to run for Congress.. well that Tom is on the Judiciary Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives.

Federal Judge D. Mike Fisher, who is the former Attorney General of Pennsylvania, is also a DeNaples disciple with tens of thousands in campaign contributions from him.  He also had contributions from Thomas Jefferson University and the law firm defending them who was Carianne Torrissi of Klehr Harrison, Harvey and  Branzburg, LLC. They were also major contributors to Senator Specter, who put Fisher on the federal bench. It appears Fisher’s consolation prize after losing against Fast Eddy Rendell in a 2002 run for Governor, was the federal judgeship.

But it doesn’t end there.  Samuel Alito-  the SCOTUS Judge was from the Third Circuit  – is Sirica’s bosom buddy. It has been alleged that  Alito was “too soft” on organized crime when 22 accused mobsters went free when he was prosecuting the case in New Jersey, before getting nominated to the Supreme Court. Scirica spoke at his nomination for SCOTUS. So anyone from Pennsylvania that tries to get heard before the Supreme Court, has to go through Alito, because he is the Third Circuit SCOTUS gatekeeper.  This cannot be working out very well for those that try for certiorari to the Supreme Court, who cannot get relief for state court due process violations through the federal district courts.

The protection from this level of corruption is supposed to be Congress- they have the duty and the power to initiate an investigative committee into the judiciary. But Congressman Brendan Boyle- with a brother Kevin in the state legislature- just refuses to do anything. They are just too heavily funded by the legal industry. These are crimes being committed under color of law and there is a criminal code for it 18 USC 242. Except it is not being enforced against judges anywhere in the country.

This is the reason why there needs to be term limits for every legislative office – both in state and federal government. Specter put about a dozen federal  judges on the bench because he was in office for over 30 years. He was able to be in office so long because he had a lot of money, some of which came from people he appointed to the bench. As a result these people were all associated before they even got into the courts, so there are conflicts of interest between every jurisdiction.

Lawyers are the only profession in the country that is completely self-regulating. Judge Scirica has been doing the speech circuit pontificating about how they must not allow the legislature to impose an OIG on them like they have been trying for 15 years. He claims it is a threat to their independence- but campaign contributions are just fine! Scirica sounds more like an underboss than a federal judge.

 It not only affects discrimination cases, it obstructs all other forms of civil rights, such as allegations of abuse in the prison system and complaints against state judges and public officials, which are challenged through this same jurisdiction. There is not one law enforcement agency that can or will stop them.

While the country is wasting resources in being distracted with nonsense about Russia, we are being destroyed from the inside. This path of organized crime from Harrisburg straight to SCOTUS is being covered up by Congressman Boyle. Having these miscreants serve for a life time is a complete disaster.  Democracy is completely dead. No hearings. No civil jury trials. But what do you expect from the state that gave us Porngate, Kids for Cash and is trying to rob poor old Bill Cosby before he dies?

Can all the kings horses and all the kings men put America back together again?

How Three Unelected Obscure People Took Control of National Security

Share

As President Trump  struggles to “make America great again”  the “draining of the swamp” has been self-effectuating. Here we will examine how some of that muck surfacing from the bottom,  could possibly have put themselves in control of national security. There is a larger lesson here to be learned  from the dog and pony show that three judges put on for the country.

Federal Ninth Circuit Appellate Judges Clifton, Canby and Friedland, were appointed,  not elected, to lifetime taxpayer funded positions. They “abused their discretion” which is subject to judicial disciplinary action as a violation of their oaths of office,  in their ruling on the Presidential executive order that temporarily banned travel from terrorist-producing nations. Any citizen could file a complaint against them for putting our safety at risk.  They used their own machinated  “precedent” to do this, when clearly our Constitution states only Congress can override the President.

As they say, for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. The legal challenges to President Trump’s immigration ban has coincidentally uncovered a black hole containing the fuel behind the moral collapse of our government.  This attempt to overpower Presidential authority, is a symptom of a much larger national crisis, that has destroyed many of the “forgotten men.”  If they can publicly  ignore the law  in such a high profile case,  imagine what they have been doing to the rest of Americans  and their families?

On January 3, 2017, CNN reported that President-elect Trump strong-armed Republicans after they conspired to delete an independent ethics watchdog committee from a bill, scheduled to be voted on by the House of Representatives. In what was an undermining of his vow to “drain the swamp,”  Trump made clear his anger at the move in his usual manner – via Twitter. This prompted  GOP lawmakers to hurriedly change these plans of this covert  attempt to take over their own policing. Various political pundits expressed their outrage at such a concept- “self-policing?” they cried! Yet for decades that is exactly the privilege that the Judicial Branch has gifted itself.

Unless you have been swept into its maelstrom, it is difficult to  comprehend the magnitude of  how far the Judicial members have removed themselves from scrutiny. They declared their immunity from law suits and prosecution for crimes they commit under color of law, and formed a secretive disciplinary board populated by their associates. The Judiciary has also  exempted themselves from the Freedom of Information Act,  and rule on their own conflicts of interest (self-recusal).  For many years, all attempts by Congress to create an independent Office of Inspector General within the Judicial Branch has been blocked, lead by Chief Justice John Roberts of the U.S. Supreme Court,  even though OIGs exist in every other agency of the government.

These same conditions exist in state courts – it is one close-knit club. Because of this, there are  incomprehensible numbers of victims being rendered homeless by engineered foreclosures and the extortion of assets by family courts, with only the federal judges to turn to  as a remedy for state court civil rights violations.  It is only in recent years that thousands of innocent people were released from incarceration thanks to DNA technology–a testament to how seriously out of control  these civil servants are.

 In addition to being the only autonomous sector of our  government,  the Judiciary has completely usurped the authority of the U.S. Constitution using court procedural rules, and blocked the Attorney Generals from reviewing them for constitutionality. Over the course of decades, judges have instituted increasingly self-serving bench decisions, using  this backdoor of case law or  “precedent” to obstruct the right to jury trial which is supposedly guaranteed by the Seventh Amendment. They now overturn jury trial verdicts using procedural rules, even though that is also a direct violation of the Constitution.

It is not unusual for civil litigation to last five years, and often ten or more years, because it has one purpose- the generation of revenue. With unregulated hourly attorney fees, and the  unbridled ability to rig cases now devoid of juries,  unless you have  lots of funds for the most politically-connected lawyers and purchase a cooperative judge, you’re case will be dismissed. Barely  a shred of integrity remains, having been replaced by a  seditious legal industry, that occupies every corner of the grandiose court houses where justice is supposed to be served.

 For all their claims that the  sequestration from oversight by other branches of government is “necessary for judicial independence,”  judges continue to espouse that accepting campaign contributions or appointments to the federal bench as political favors, does not affect their impartiality. In reality, it does not matter whether the judge is elected or appointed, they will invariably have either a vested interest in, or an obligation to the legal industry, which is a primary source of election campaign funding.  Defeated candidate Hillary Clinton received approximately $21 million from the legal industry for her campaign, as opposed to the reported less than $200,000 to President Trump. We have seen just how that has effected influence over him, as he was freely able to question the integrity of the judge that granted a stay on his immigration ban, that was intended to block terrorism.

The big question remains of  how do you undo this “catch 22” when the branch of government that has the last say- known as “judicial review,” (something Thomas Jefferson vehemently opposed)  has created arbitrary rules in order to justify and conceal their own abuse of power. Congress has refused citizen requests for investigations either out of fear of retaliation or just plain collusion, because the majority of them are lawyers invested in the legal industry. That fact has effectively defeated the separation of powers.

This all this leads to a few conclusions. One is that capitalism does not mix with justice.  If you want to get rich, then you had best invent the ipod or sell designer shoes- wealth and unchecked power should not be a by-product of delivering justice. Another is that because of the human condition, if you give most people an inch, they will take a mile – or as Jefferson phrased it: “Judges are as honest as other people and not more so..” in his opposition to lifetime judicial appointments.

Jefferson was never at a loss of criticism nor was he ever wrong regarding the Judiciary.  On August 18, 1821- He predicted this conundrum would eventually come about- when he wrote in a letter to a Mr. Hammonde “The germ of the dissolution of our federal government is in the constitution of the federal judiciary; an irresponsible body…working like gravity by night and by day, gaining a little today and a little tomorrow, and advancing its noiseless step like a thief, over the field of jurisdiction.. it will render powerless the checks provided of one [branch of] government on another and will become as venal and  oppressive as the government from which we separated.”

And here we are…a nation in turmoil, possibly on the brink of collapse because of a branch of government cloaked in secrecy, that fancies itself above the law and that has no semblance whatsoever to a democratic system of justice.

Clintongate versus Porngate: A Tale of Two Email Scandals That Just Doesn’t Add Up

Share

The saga of Democrat and first female Pennsylvania Attorney General, Kathleen Kane, is an interesting contrast to that of Presidential Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton's quagmire regarding mishandling of official government emails.  In fact, the two women are, or were comrades and Clinton supported Kane's run for office in 2012. The difference of course is who they were up against and how much money they had to fight allegations, making the speed and timing of today's announcement that Clinton has been cleared a bit suspicious.

If you missed Pennsylvania's three-ring Judicial circus, coined "Porngate" by the media, it turned the Commonwealth's third branch on its head. After Kane released thousands of racist and pornographic emails she discovered on state servers upon taking office,  it resulted in the forced resignation of two Supreme Court Justices and various and sundry removals and penalties for over 100 state attorneys and employees.    The best description of what had transpired can be had by viewing this video of Pennsylvania Senator Anthony Williams press conference.  After Attorney General  Kane gave an interview on CNN there was a scramble throughout the judiciary to silence her.  Yet since the Williams declaration that he would sandblast the judiciary,  there has been little action and there certainly was no support for Attorney General Kane, who became the sacrificial lamb in the Commonwealth's struggle to rid its government of systemic corruption.

Attorney General Kane was arrested and eventually convicted based on allegations of leaking decade old grand jury information,  by Frank Fina and Mark Costanza, former OAG prosecutors, who she exposed as major senders of the rancid emails, which involved several judges. It was not just the content of the emails that was problematic, but the communications and relationships that may have been violations of due process.

When the PA Supreme Court bench suspended her law license the bench included Justice Michael Eakin sitting in judgment of Kane, who himself was guilty of sending racist and graphic emails and eventually resigned. This is what happens when you mess with what many Pennsylvanian's call the black-robed mafia, in the state that gave us the Kids for Cash Scandal, the Penn State serial pedophile Jerry Sandusky and did some grandstanding by firing the entire Philadelphia traffic Court bench to avoid further investigation into the higher levels.

President Bill Clinton with Kathleen Kane

The Kane case is a microcosm of what America is facing  now in this Presidential election.   As Kane said in her CNN interview-" you would not believe how powerful this is" a reference to what is essentially organized crime that continues to have a grip on the Keystone state, and apparently the nation at-large. The discrepancy between this email scandal and the use of a secret server by Hillary Clinton, to circumvent the Freedom of Information Act, is the timing and handling of the investigation.  No one knows the exact amount, but at least one million emails were investigated by an independent prosecutor from Maryland named Doug Gansler, in the "Porngate" fiasco.

 

It was done in a similar  manner as the FBI handling of Clinton's email and those found on the pervert husband of her assistant, Huma Abedin.  They used  keywords to scan and find whatever it was that they were looking for, however, while the estimated 700,000 emails in the Clinton investigation took only about a week,  the investigation into the Porngate emails took more than six months, and still no results have been released to the public and no decisions has been made.

It stands to reason that it would take much longer than a week to ascertain as to whether the contents of email threads contained information relevant to the Clinton investigation. It is logical that pressure was put on FBI Director Comey to vindicate her purely for the election. Hillary Clinton has not been cleared however, of allegations of money laundering through her foundation.  That material evidence against her remains quite incriminating, as a looming indictment continues to unfold.

Hopefully this country will wake up and smell the coffee on November 8th- and have the intelligence to see that we cannot defeat this infestation of criminals in our government by way of another insider.  The choice is obvious-if America wants to cleanse its system and survive as a secure and free nation.

Five Pennsylvania Senators Push for Monumental Overhall of the Commonwealth Government

Senator Rob Teplitz
Senator John Yudichak
Senator Anthony H. Williams
Senator Mike Folmer
Senator James Brewster

Finally the Cries of Victims of Government Corruption Have been Heard by a Handful of Members of the Senate

For at least a decade, hundreds if not thousands of Pennsylvania citizens, have been struggling to have their voices heard by their government. Pennsylvania has become known not only throughout the nation, but around the world for its epidemic of judicial corruption.  Calls to the Governor, the Judicial Conduct Board, the FBI, the Ethics Commission, the Auditor General- have all fallen on deaf ears leading citizens to believe that the entire government had been compromised.  

However, five state Senators-  John Yudichak,  Rob Teplitz, James Brewster, Anthony H. Williams and Mike Folmer have apparently been working quietly in the background to make major changes in Harrisburg. Senators Teplitz, Yudichak and Brewster submitted Senate Bill 1328 on June 23, 2016 to the Senate State Government Committee for a Constitutional Convention, the only solution that would provide sweeping, comprehensive change.  Without a doubt the section most in need of drastic change contains the provisions of the Judicial Branch and its Judicial Conduct Board. Not surprisingly that Senate Committee is chaired by two other Senators that have been at the forefront of attacking judicial corruption – Senator Anthony Hardy Williams and Michael Folmer. They spearheaded a  bill to stop the seizing of assets before people are convicted of crimes- a no brainer.  In fact it was shocking to find out that this was a standard practice throughout Pennsylania.

No doubt their intention is to address the much needed restructuring of the Unified Judicial System created by Article V Section 10(c) and the subsequent 1993 Amendment with Section 18 that created the Judicial Conduct Board, that has been a complete failure and embarrassment to the Commonwealth. It has been 40 years since the last Convention of 1968- that resulted in a rogue Judicial Branch, that defies the checks and balance of our democracy.  The public record shows that the proposed structure of a “self-disciplinary” agency was vehemently opposed at a sparsely attended forum in 1993.

This autocratic court system in Pennsylvania gave rise to the Kids for Cash Scandal, Porngate, the  removal of three Supreme Court Justices, the termination of the entire Philadelphia Traffic Court Bench- just to mention the few most widely known fiascos.  Other lesser known albeit just as damaging are the multiple counties that allowed cases to be delayed for decades causing massive damage to an untold number of families in the domestic relations jurisdictions- most prominently Montgomery and Westmoreland Counties.   Many of these delays are alleged to have been intentionally machinated by complicating cases to increase revenue for the local courts and legal industry- causing bankruptcies and home foreclosures that continue due to judicial-attorney collusion and negligence.  However, these injustices have gone widely unreported in the media, which has focused on the criminal justice system that is equally as decayed as the civil justice system.

Now finally there is hope that Article V Sections 10 and 18, will be repealed, or at the very least- rewritten to demand that judges be made accountable to the citizens, that the judicial branch observe the checks and balance system and that they no longer be allowed to operate in secrecy, which has plagued the state with one scandal after the other. 

It is interesting to note that it was not proposed by either the House or  Senate Judiciary Committees.  Senator Stewart Greenleaf has been cited as a major obstacle to judicial reform,  whose family law firm- Elliot Greenleaf LLC, has suspiciously been awarded tens of thousands of dollars in state contracts by the Judiciary during his almost 30 years controlling the Senate Judiciary Committee. It is also interesting to note but not surprising. that of the five Senators pushing for Constitutional changes- only one- Senator Teplitz- is a lawyer. 

But for those caught up in the corruption – the 2018 proposed date will seem like a millenium to wait. Pennsylvania Court Watch will be vigilantly monitoring the progress of this Bill, and reporting on  members of the General Assembly who attempt to impede its passing.

And Pennsylvania can thank former Attorney General Kathleen Kane, for if she had not released the rancid emails that exposed the true nature of the men running the Judicial Branch, it is unlikely that any of these Senators ever would have initiated this effort to return integrity to our government.  Only the “Porngate” scandal got enough attention; not even 6000 innocent children going to prison in the Kids for Cash disaster was enough to get our government to wake up and do their jobs.    As Thomas Jefferson said over 150 years ago – “Judges are as honest as other men and not more so…”

What Right Do the Attorney Professional Associations Have Writing Our Laws?

Share

 

For decades, the “non-profit” attorney unions aka “bar associations, have been writing the court procedural rules, which have the effect of laws.  The “rules” are not approved by the legislative branches of government.  They construct them to maximize profit for their legal industry, which has essentially replaced the justice system.

The modern court procedural rules concocted by the Bar since 1970, contain provisions that have virtually eliminated jury trials, and target self-represented and indigent parties for immediate dismissal of their lawsuits, at both the state and federal levels.

For example, these two rules are direct violations of the U.S. Constitution Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments that guarantee equal treatment and access to the law:  F.R.C.P. 14  that targets indigent (informa pauperis)  parties and in Pennsylvania this rule targets self-represented (pro sePa.R.C.P. 233.

Both the civil and criminal venues have been affected. In the civil courts, parties that have been the most devastated are in the family courts- which have nothing to do with divorce as most people assume. The family courts have one purpose; extortion of personal assets.  And we have all seen the increasing number of inmates being released through the Innocence Project- who had their lives wasted away for the profit of others.

Would you allow the insurance industries, medical associations or construction unions write the laws in this country for your healthcare and road safety? Many feel they already are, but that is also a result of the disgraceful lobbying laws that have been inserted by these very same bar associations.

It is time for the people of this country to demand that the court system be investigated for the racketeering that has been taking place “under color of law.” Only through a massive public movement targeting elected officials,  most of whom are members of these very bar associations, will this country survive.

It does not appear that the mainstream media will assist, as they cannot publish anything that does not go through a battery of lawyers before approval.  Do not wait until your life is destroyed by these self-serving individuals who have taken control of our justice system. Get involved with local groups – there are many across the country that need your support.

Is This What the Judiciary Calls Equal Justice?
