Brief Introduction

Former federal agent Rodney Stich and his coalition of other former government agents and insiders had sought to report the corrupt activities in the government's aviation safety offices related to a series of specific airline disasters, and also criminal activities in other areas of overt and covert government activities. The authority for doing this was the federal crime reporting statute and the statute that permits any citizen to seek a court order requiring a federal official to perform a mandatory duty and halt unlawful conduct.

In response to these efforts, large numbers of federal judges, Department of Justice personnel, and over 50 lawyers and law firms embarked on multiple schemes to block the reports of the high-level corruption and silence the former federal agent acting as a whistleblower to expose misconduct resulting in major harm, many deaths, and a series of catastrophic events. Click here for more introductory information.

The first of numerous attempts were made in the late 1970s, as Rodney Stich filed papers in the federal courts at San Francisco to report the criminal activities in the FAA and NTSB to a federal judge that he had discovered during his official federal duties. The reports of the federal crimes to a federal judge were required by the federal crime reporting statute. Failure to have made such a report would have been a criminal offense.

As a matter of criminal statutes, federal judge must receive any report of a federal crime reported to them as part of their mandatory executive responsibilities and not their judicial responsibilities. Their responsibility then is to turn the information over to the proper federal department, which is usually the U.S. Department of Justice.

Any failure or refusal by federal judges to receive report of a federal crime would constitute an obstruction of justice crime by the judge. Every time that federal judges blocked the reporting of existing criminal activities, the crimes continued, along with the resulting harm. In the aviation sector, that consisted of continuing crashes and deaths. So with every judicial cover-up, subsequent federal judges had to also commit the crime of cover-up to protect the earlier obstruction of justice and related harm by earlier federal judges.

Series of Sabotages by Whistleblower's Attorneys

Sabotage by Hired Lawyer in Exposing FAA Corruption

The very first legal sabotage that Stich encountered was while he was an FAA inspector and used the law in such a manner that he forced a hearing to be conducted where he acted similar to an independent prosecutor. He had hired a Denver lawyer to conduct this hearing. Within ten minutes after the hearing commenced, Stich recognized the lawyer was protecting the interests of the FAA (and United Airlines), and Stich promptly dismissed him and proceeded on his own.

Sabotaged by Lawyers Hired to Defend Against Sham Action
Filed in California Courts by CIA-FBI-Front Law Firm

Years later, as Stich's efforts to expose far worse high-level corruption, a sham lawsuit was filed in the California courts at Fairfield, that was a bizarre scheme to seize Stich's assets that funded his corruption fighting efforts. That sham lawsuit violated and was barred by dozens of California and federal statutes and controlling decisional laws, and deprived California judges of personal and subject matter jurisdiction.

None of the half dozen lawyers that Stich hired would cite those defenses that could have ended the lawsuit at the first hearing. Instead, the lawyers argued doctrines of law that gave the judges the option of exercising jurisdiction that the judges did not have, and of ignoring the laws that required dismissing the action. Stich then proceeded to raise the controlling laws. (His previous lawsuits against the FAA and NTSB had prepared himn for filing professional lawsuits and defenses.

Sabotaged by Sacramento Lawyers In
Criminal Contempt of Court Charges

While lawyers were filing sham legal actions that knowingly halted Stich's efforts to expose the criminal activities that he sought to expose, federal judges and Justice Department lawyers filed criminal contempt of court charges against Stich in retaliation for filing a federal lawsuit seeking to report the criminal activities, as required to be reported by the federal crime reporting statute.

these charges were filed on the basis that the former federal agent and whistleblower were filed papers in federal court, under the federal crime reporting statute, to report major crimes involving key people in government that were crimes against the United States and resulting in great harm. Stich hired Sacramento lawyer Joel Pegg to defend against this charge, and found that Pegg was cooperating with the federal judges and prosecutors before he normally appeared in his routine legal practice. Stich then was forced to proceed on his own.

By that that, federal judges, and the earlier California judges, had tied up all of Stich's assets and he did not have access to any funds. The court appointed a lawyer to represent Stich, and then the lawyer refused to raise any of the defenses and told Stich to get ready for prison. Stich then filed his own defense briefs. That was Sacramento lawyer Carl Larson.

Sabotaged by Las Vegas Lawyer Joshua Landish

To defend against the corrupt, illegal, and unconstitutional seizure and liquidation of the assets that funded the attempts to halt the great harm resulting from, the corruption that Stich and his coalition of former intelligence, law enforcement, and aviation safety personnel had initially discovered during the professional and government duties:

Stich has been forced by the lis pendens and orders by California judges to seek defense under Chapter 11 of the bankruptcy code. He had no financial problems except for the lis pendens that caused properties to be lost when mortgages came due and could not be refinanced because of the lis pendens placed on them by the Friedman lawyers. (They assisted in the loss of valuable property that they had falsely claimed were community property belonging in part to their Texas "straw  man" client. Their willingness to allow the properties to be loss further showed their interest being not for their client, but to strip Stich of the assets that funded his exposure activities.)

Initially, Stich obtained an order from Judge Robert Jones, Las Vegas, to remove the lis pendens, which was the only reason why Stich exercised Chapter 11 defenses. But then, without notifying Stich, his Las Vegas lawyer, Joshua Landish, secretly requested Judge Jones to order a seizure and liquidation of Stich's assets, which was done.

Over the years Stich discovered from other whistleblowers about the same practice of lawyers sabotaging their clients defenses, which then endeared them to government prosecutors and judges.

Joining the sabotage by Las Vegas lawyer Joshua Landish was San Francisco area attorney, Vernon Bradley of Sausalito.

Initial Scheme by CIA-Related San Francisco Law Firm

The first scheme initiated to halt Stich's exposure actions was the lawsuit filed by the CIA-front law firm that could immediately separate Stich from the assets that funded his exposure actions. Two legal actions that could do this would be (a) probate action (but that required that Stich be deceased); or (b) a divorce action and then claiming that all of his assets were community property and thereby an order rendered barring Stich access to the assets through lis pendens.

The problem with that second approach was that:

To Defend Against the Initial Lawsuit Barred By
Dozens of State and Federal Laws

Among the problems encountered by Stich with the first half dozen lawyers he hired to defend against the sham lawsuit were the following:

Lawyer Protected California Judges in Federal Court

Stich hired a lawyer to bring an action in the federal courts at Sacramento, California, to sue the California judges (and the lawyers for the Friedman law firm) and to seek an order halting the massive violations of federally protected rights. Fearing judicial retaliation, and over Stich's protests, he removed the California lawyers named as defendants. He failed to raise the defenses under the Civil Rights Act, the Declaratory Judgment Acts, and other federal remedies that were the heart of the federal defenses. He refused to file an appeal of the decision refusing to allow the lawsuit to proceed. From that point on, Stich had to appear on his own behalf, submitting legal briefs, which were very professional.

The California judges were protecting the sham lawsuit by the CIA-related San Francisco law firm despite dozens of violations of state and federal law, and thus repeated violated the Civil Rights Act for which they could be sued.

Powerful Force in Government Orchestrated The
Multiple Cover-Ups and Retaliatory Actions

To understand the following subject, take a look at the introduction to systemic corruption in the United States, the efforts of several courageous former government agents, and the enormous number of people and groups protecting the guilty. That will help understand the existence of a powerful group in government that was orchestrating the retaliatory actions to prevent the information becoming known to the American people.

The evidence indicates that a powerful force in government was orchestrating the multiple parallel actions that blocked the reporting of high-level corruption, and that force was properly key people in the U.S. Department of Justice. Examples of these indicators included the following:

  • Years of cover-ups by Department of Justice employees when informed of the corruption.

  • Years of cover-ups by members of Congress when informed of the corruption.

  • Repeated cover-up by federal judges when former federal agent Rodney Stich filed federal actions under the federal crime reporting statute seeking to report to a federal judge the major corrupt and criminal activities in key government positions associated with a series of major aviation disasters and later involving national security harm.

  • Series of sham lawsuits filed by a hoard of lawyers that involved massive and unprecedented violations of state and federal laws, followed by repeated additional violations by a large number of California judges.

  • Unprecedented judicial retaliation for exercising legally-prescribed defenses.

  • Repeated protection of the massive violations of state and federal laws by federal judges.

  • Series of illegal and unconstitutional orders by federal district and appellate judges permanently barring Stich from filing any papers in any federal district or appellate court. These orders knowingly blocked Stich and his coalition of former intelligence and law enforcement personnel from reporting as required by law the federal offenses that they discovered during their official duties, and blocked Stich from defending against the massive violation being inflicted by a hoard of lawyers and California judges.

  • Corruptly, and in gross violation of federal laws and constitutional protections, federal judges corruptly seized, without a hearing and without cause, the $10 million in assets that funded the attempts to halt the tragedy-enabling high-level corruption.

  • Charging Stich with criminal contempt of court for attempting to report criminal activities that were enabling to occur a series of major aviation disastersand other harmand would make possible several major terrorist attacks, including the 9/11 hijackings. That retaliation against Stich enabled the corruption that had already enabled many deaths to occur, enabled the corruption in such areas as the government's aviation safety offices, the FAA, responsible for preventing aviation disasters, including terrorist attack, and within the Department of Justice to continue. Evidence that is little-known to the American people shows gross misconduct in these two groups as having been the primary enablers of a series of horrific terrorist attacks, including the hijacking of four airliners on September 11, 2001.

  • 30-years of federal judges blocking the reports of high-level criminal activities in which they themselves become complicit through cover-ups.

  • Repeated complicity, from 1980 to 2005, by the Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court, as they aided and abetted each of these and many other instances that were brought to their attention through legal filings and letters.

  • For these monumental repeated violations of criminal statutes, of major civil and constitutional rights, to continue, knowingly sacrificing lives and national security, required a powerful force in government. And that is believed to be primarily within the U.S. Department of Justice, easily accommodated by a culture of systemic corruption and systemic cover-ups in the United States.

The lawyers, whose actions hindering the exposure of the high-level corruption by activist Rodney Stich, paralleled the block by federal judges and Department of Justice personnel, appeared to be acting for a powerful force somewhere in the federal government. Their actions were similar to the thugs in Egypt hired by the government officials in power, called "Baltagiya," or the hired thugs in Iran called "Basij"

Lawyers' Sabotage of Whistleblower Protected Corruption
That Enabled Continuation of Catastrophic Consequences

The actions by these lawyers had tragic consequences whose harm went far beyond the harm to that former federal agent. Their actions, either their stupidity, or their blatant misconduct, blocked the attempts by Stich and his group of other former government agents who were trying to defend the United States against a literal Trojan horse corruption responsible for a continuing series of tragic consequences for the nation and its people.

Judicial and Justice Department Personnel Attacks on Whistleblower

As a result of the widespread corruption in overt and covert government operations, the systemic cover-ups that treat high-level corruption as the "third-rail," and the retaliation against whistleblowers, great American tragedies have repeatedly occurred, and will continue to occur.

9/11 Easily-Preventable Multiple Hijackings


These few examples of the horrors associated with airline disasters enabled to occur by documented corruption withheld from the American people. The standard culture of cover-ups in the United States enabled the corruption, cover-ups, to mutate into different areas. In the aviation area, although the continuing series of airline disasters eventually came to a halt for other reasons, the culture continued, and enabled to occur a number of easily preventable airline disasters. The inbred culture created the conditions that enabled four groups of terrorists to easily hijack four airliners within a few hours of each other and kill nearly 3,000 people.

Consequences of Corruption, Cover-Ups, And
Retaliation Felonies Not Limited to Aviation

There were many other forms of victims from the systemic high-level corruption. These included for instance victims of the:

  • Department of Justice prosecutorial misconduct, people being falsely charges with crimes in order to improve the prosecutors' career.

  • The explosion of violent crime related to drug smuggling into the United States, in which CIA assets were major players.

  • Series of financial frauds appearing every few years, with the latest housing and financial implosions surfacing in 2008.

  • Seizure of assets from innocent people.

  • And many other forms.

These offenses are described in the books written by insiders.

Corruption of the Type Described at this site does not occur in a vacuum. High-level corruption in one area is simply one tentacle of a widespread culture of corruption. And the consequences of that corruption−and the endemic cover-ups−have consequences in other areas. The culture of corruption affects the people and the nation in many other ways, That includes the latest series of financial frauds that has occurred in the housing and financial sectors. Also, the effect of the endemic corruption and endemic cover-ups−major parts of the culture in the United States−that enablers successful terrorist attacks upon U.S. interests.

Harm to People Overseas From Culture Of
High-Level Corruption and Lies in the United States

In addition to the decades of harm resulting from the systemic corruption of key people and groups in the U.S. government, affecting aviation safety, financial, human rights, in the United States, there is the harm from outside sources brought about by the actions of U.S. politicians affecting people in other countries—such as the history of invading and killing foreigners—there are the successful "terrorist" attacks made possible by high-level corruption, and then there are the foreigners who are also victims from the same high-level corruption that adversely affects the American, but in a different form.

Remains of a girl—about the age of the 9-year-old Killed in Tucson in January 2011.

In criminal law, people are accomplices, and guilty, if they know of a criminal act and fail to report it to proper authorities and also to take efforts within their capability to halt their continuation. And there are endless numbers of accomplices that are complicit in these crimes and enablers of the consequences.

Suggestion to people outside the United States. Become familiar with the documented systemic corruption in the United States and show the outrage lacking of people in the United States, and:

  • Help expose the endemic corruption that seem to be acceptable to the American people, and maybe wake them up.

  • Help to protect yourselves against the decades of ham inflicted upon people of other countries by the actions of U.S. politicianssupported by much of the American public. Examples:

    • Serial lying by U.S. politicians to use as a pretense to invade Iraq and Afghanistan, killing tens of thousands of innocent people.

    • U.S. politicians shifting enabling blame from their own corrupt actions that encouraged and enabled four groups of terrorists to simultaneously hijack four airliners, and shift the blame to the people of Iraq and Afghanistanwith the help of a dumbed-down American public that is mostly too lazy to learn the truth.
