Circumventing Judicial Block in California March 24, 2000. After being corruptly denied the right to file a lawsuit at Oakland by federal judges, Stich filed an amended lawsuit on March 24, 2000, in the federal courts at Reno, Nevada. The 66-page amended complaint detailed a 20-year pattern of: Criminal activities that Stich and his large group of former professions in various government positions had discovered, which were either inflicting or enabled great harm. The harm cause or enabled by that corruption. Obstruction-of-justice cover-ups by federal judges and personnel in the U.S. Department of Justice, that he had documented starting as a key federal airline safety inspector in the mid-1960, and continuing to the present date. The retaliation against corruption-exposing and corruption-fighting whistleblower (Rodney Stich) for attempting to halt the corruption and oftentimes deadly and catastrophic consequences. That retaliation included sham contempt of court charges and a prison sentence for filing a federal action to report the criminal activities, as required to be reported by the federal crime reporting statute, Title 18 U.S.C. § 4. The corrupt seizure and liquidation of the $10 million in real estate assets that funded his attempts to halt the corruption and resulting consequences. The multiple orders rendered by complicit federal judges that voided for him every protections in the laws and Constitution of the United States, depriving him of the protections against the great harm from the people involved in trying to halt the exposure activities Most of the allegations in the complaint were supported by judicial records in the California and in the federal courts. The resulting consequences were supported by the long list of events, including recent easily preventable terrorist attacks—which would be further supported during the proceedings by the worst series of terrorist attacks in the nation's history. The primary corruption that made those possible on 9/11 was that in the FAA, assisted by the NTSB cover-ups, and most directly, the series of blatant criminal acts by high-level personnel in the U.S. Department of Justice. May 12, 2000. Request For Admissions (RFA), May 12, 2001, upon 26 California and federal judges, and attorneys who colluded with them in the attacks upon Stich. Reference is the one sent to California Judge Wolters. Federal Rules of Civil Procedure 4 strongly emphasize using the mails for serving the complaint, and strongly emphasize the importance of the defendants acknowledging receipt of the summons. Since every defendant was a judge or "officer of the court" as attorneys are called, the average person could expect that they would comply with this strongly worded acceptance of process. Federal rules of civil procedures also provide that if the plaintiff does not effect service upon the defendants at the end of 120 days, the judge can dismiss the lawsuit without notice. Everyone except the federal judges had to return the acknowledgement of summons and complaint within 30 days. Federal employees, the defendant federal judges, had 60 days to return the acknowledgement of summons and complaint. The deadlines were June 12, and July 12th for the defendant federal judges, to return the acknowledgement of service. Every one of the 26 California judicial defendants and "officers of the court" refused to respond, refused to return the acknowledgement of service. Because of the strong wording in Rule 4 to accept service by mail, it would be extremely unlikely that every defendant in that capacity related to the courts would violate that provision. Obviously, they schemed together not to respond. This is called a conspiracy to obstruct the intent of Federal Rule of Civil Procedures. Rule 4 Summons by mail Rule 4(d)(2): "[A defendant] that receives notice of an action in the manner provided in this paragraph [by mail] has a duty to avoid unnecessary costs of serving the summons." Rule 4(d)(2)(D): "...of the consequences of compliance and of a failure to comply with the request:" Several defendants could not be located. The Nevada bar association refused to provide Stich with the address of two Nevada attorneys who were defendants in the action. One attorney, Rene Feinstein of Las Vegas, was reached by phone, and refused to provide an address for accepting service of the Summons and Amended Complaint and the Request For Admissions. The California bar associated refused to provide the address of several attorneys and inactive judges on the basis that funds were limited. U.S Attorney Protecting Judges—and Themselves. Directly Involved in Most Recent Catastrophic Event, And Those About to Occur on 9/11 July 6, 2000. U.S. Attorney at Reno, Nevada, filed a Motion To Dismiss Federal Judges, claiming they were absolutely immune from any lawsuit. The serious allegations in the lawsuit were not denied; nor denied in any of the many prior or subsequent federal filing. At that time, the corrupt conduct of Department of Justice personnel occurred in the Pan Am Flight 103 prosecution; the catastrophic bombings of the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania; the prosecution involved in the downing of TWA Flight 800; and the 1993 World Trade Center bombings, along with others in the list of criminal activities and harm being reported. In addition, the continuing culture—especially among top employees in the U.S. Department of Justice—played the most direct enabling roles in the shortly-to-occur hijackings of four U.S. airliners on September 11, 2001. Dismissing Judicial Defendants On Judicial Immunity Claim July 26, 2000. U.S. district judge Edward C. Reed, Jr., Reno, Nevada, signed an order dismissing all defendant federal judges from the lawsuit holding that the "judges are absolutely immune ... even when such acts are in excess of their jurisdiction and are alleged to have been done maliciously or corruptly." Reed was upholding judicial anarchy. The allegations in the Amended Complaint, which under law must be accepted as true at that stage of the proceedings, charged the defendant federal judges as acting in a conspiracy to undermine the laws and Constitution of the United States, aiding and abetting criminal and subversive acts by blocking their reports, and engaging in other crimes. The complaint included such charges as federal judges: Acted without personal and without subject matter jurisdiction as they rendered orders taking Stich's $10 million in assets−which had funded his investigative and exposure activities into high-level corruption in government. Blocking the reporting of criminal activities in government which Stich—a former federal agent and his group of government agents−sought to report to a federal judge under the federal crime reporting statute, Title 18 U.S.C. Section 4. These obstruction of justice tactics violated various criminal statutes, including Title 18 U.S.C. Sections 2, 3, and 4. Retaliated against Stich, a former federal agent and witness, for seeking to report the criminal activities in key government offices (as detailed in Unfriendly Skies, Defrauding America, and Drugging America). These are criminal acts under Title 18 U.S.C. Sections 111, 372, 1505, 1510, 1512, and 1513. Engaged in long continuing conspiracy that violated large numbers of federal laws and constitutional protections as part of a long-continuing scheme to block the reporting of these criminal activities. And much more, revealing a literal judicial anarchy that has become the culture in the federal courts and is subverting the protections under the laws and Constitution of the United States, converting the courts into a corrupt arm of government, and which protects criminal activities in government. The sequence of these proceedings reveals a pattern of corruption in the federal courts that includes the justices of the U.S. Supreme Court, and which is responsible for continuation of corrupt activities that have inflicted great harm upon the United States, the American people, and specific men and women. Request for admissions sent to defendant lawyers, California judges, and federal judges. August 4, 2000. Motion for Reconsideration of the dismissal of the defendant federal judges, and second request for the judge to issue findings of facts and conclusions of law, as required by federal law. Alternate viewing with Adobe Acrobat Reader. August 5, 2000. Motion to dismiss by a group of San Francisco attorneys to be dismissed from the lawsuit by a group of San Francisco area attorneys for bankruptcy court trustees, including attorneys who worked for and with infamous trustee Charles Duck, accused of the nation's worst trustee embezzlement, who liquidated much of Rodney Stich's $10 million in real estate assets. These attorneys included Lawrence Goldberg, Terrance C. Stinnet, Iam Macdonald, Merle C. Meyers, Melanie Darling, and the law firms of Goldberg, Stinnett, Meyers & Davis; and Goldberg, Stinnett, and Macdonald. California Attorney General Protecting California Judges August 10, 2000. California Attorney General Bill Lockyer filed motion on behalf of the defendant California judges. The motion was filled with misstatements of law, misstatements of facts, withholding of key facts and law that would have altered the position he was taking. He did not deny any of the allegations Stich made in his lawsuit. The California attorney general simply held that no matter what the judges did, they were totally immune from the consequences. Ironically, one of the defendants in the lawsuit was former California Court of Appeal judge Harry Low, who was selected by Governor Grey Davis to be the head of the California Department of Insurance. Former California court of appeal judge Harry Low was being heralded for his alleged respect for the law and civil rights, when in reality he played a role in massive violations of these state and federal civil rights protections. He misused his judicial position and the courts as if they were a corrupt arm of government. The California judges repeatedly rendered orders that violated blocks of state and federal laws and constitutional protections, which were part of the obstruction of justice tactics involved in the sequence of legal actions taken to silence Stich. Low became criminally complicit in these civil and criminal obstruction of justice tactics―and in the catastrophic and deadly consequences that followed. August 15, 2000. Stich's opposition to motion by attorneys to be dismissed. Discovery Right Repeatedly Denied Stich served, again, a Request For Admissions to the above attorneys. They refused to answer the first set, each one claiming they did not receive the RFAs. Rather than seek a court order forcing them to answer, another set was sent to them on August 14, 2000. August 16, 2000. Order by Judge Edward C. Reed, Jr., denying Stich's motion for reconsideration, holding that federal judges are above the law, are totally immune from the consequences of the conduct stated in Stich's Amended Complaint. August 23, 2000. Stich filed objection to the motion by California's attorney general to dismiss the California judges from the lawsuit. Attachment to that motion, to be read with Adobe Acrobat Reader, which lists many of the laws and constitutional protections that were repeatedly violated against Rodney Stich by California and federal judges in a continuing series of inter-related acts. Sampling of Corrupt Activities Being Reported Among the areas of major corrupt activities, including the type inflicting grave personal harm upon people, being reported that former federal agent Rodney Stich and his coalition of former intelligence, law enforcement, and aviation safety personnel were trying to report, which they initially discovered during their professional and official duties, included the following: Years of forewarned and preventable aviation disasters enabled to occur by documented corruption (plus incompetence and nonfeasance) of key people in the government's primary agency responsible for aviation safety, the FAA, including measures to prevent airlines from terrorist attacks. Years of corruption among key people in the FBI and other Department of Justice offices, including murder. Years of corruption by people associated with the Central Intelligence Agency. Among the latest consequences of the corruption being reported included: FBI-DOJ corruption involved in the investigation and prosecution related to the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, which shifted attention from the actual bombers to Libya and two Libyans, who were innocent. FBI misconduct which enabled to occur the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. FBI-DOJ misconduct that enabled the bombing of U.S. embassies in Africa. Continuation of the other areas of corruption that Stich and his group of former professionals in key government positions and operations. 9/11 Consequences Occurring During Lawsuit Reporting the Enablers While the lawsuit was pending, the corruption involving each of the defendants became enablers to the hijacking of four airliners on September 11, 2001. If 9/11 and the 3,000 deaths had to occur, it couldn't have come at a better time while over a dozen defendants that played a role in the cover-up of the corruption made possible the terrorist successes. Stich then filed a declaration in that lawsuit, showing the relationship of the corruption Stich sought to report, including most of the defendants in that lawsuit and how the actions of the defendants that halted the exposure of the corruption greatly assisted the success of the terrorist actions on 9/11 (and several earlier terrorist successes). , by their various obstruction-of-justice tactics, enabled this corruption to continue. The January 21, 2002, declaration: Showing contempt for the people who already perished, and those that will follow, made possible by his continuing cover-up, U.S. District Judge Reed blocked the lawsuit from proceeding, and dismissed it, in clear violation of numerous federal due process requirements. Stich then filed a notice of appeal and an appeal brief with the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals at San Francisco on January 27, 2002. (That was the same court to which Stich had been reporting the increasing number of corrupt activities related to tragedies since the 1970s.) The Ninth Court of appeal blocked the due process right to appeal to proceed, stating in an April 12, 2002, order that Stich had been permanently blocked by a 1994 injunction from filing any appeal briefs. These are rights guaranteed by the laws and Constitution of the United States and available to terrorists and murderers, but not to Stich! Continued Complicity by Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court In response to the violation of due process−combined with judicial efforts blocking the reporting of criminal and subversive activities−Stich submitted a petition for extraordinary writ to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas on May 1, 2002, along with a cover letter. By this time the gravity of the obstruction of justice and the massive numbers of violations of state and federal laws that were part of the legal obstruction of justice schemes were so serious that every court of appeals judge supported the criminal and civil rights violations. The judges in the Ninth Circuit court of appeals, who had repeatedly in the past blocked the reporting of the criminal activities, starting in 1974, refused to recognize the appeal briefs filed by Stich. Brief Introduction of the Above 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. In combination, they inflicted great harm through civil, constitutional, criminal, and human rights violations upon a former federal agent, and made possible the continuation of the prior consequences of corruption, cover-ups, and retaliations, some of which are shown below. The need to coordinate these many parallel efforts to block the reporting of very serious high-level corruption, and protect the participants, from 1982 to 2005 as they engaged in conspiracies involving massive and repeated civil, constitutional, and human rights violations, and criminal obstruction of justice and criminal retaliation against a former federal agent and witness, strongly suggests that a powerful group in the federal government was involved. The consequences of their enabling conduct is shown below. Pre-9/11 Lawsuit Reporting Corruption and Enablers of 9/11 Events Over the years, former federal agent Rodney Stich filed lawsuits in the federal courts seeking to report the criminal activities that were inflicting great harm upon the United States and its people. These attempts were repeatedly blocked by a combination of federal judges, Justice Department personnel, and others in the legal fraternities. Those acts constituted felonies under the obstruction of justice statutes and others, and enabled to continue the corruption and the consequences. In the aviation sector, the consequences were many deaths. The lawsuits had the following issues: Attempts to report to a federal judge the criminal activities related to a series of airline disasters that Stich initially discovered during his official duties as a federal aviation safety inspector-investigator, and then as other government agents contacted him, he sought to report the criminal activities in other areas. After Stich was targeted by lawyers, including CIA-front law firms, seeking to silence him through various tactics, including stripping Stich of the assets that funded his exposure activities, Stich included additional federal causes of actions. these additional defenses arose under the Civil Rights Act for the massive violations occurring in state courts, Bivens for the civil rights violations occurring in the federal courts, Declaratory Judgment Act, the void judgment doctrine, and civil RICO. All of these violations related to these federal causes of actions arose in the continuing schemes to obstruct justice by trying to silence Stich. The last lawsuit before the 9/11 hijackings, seeking to report, among other matters, the corruption resulting in a continuation series of airline disasters, was filed in the federal courts at Reno, Nevada. That lawsuit named as defendants California judges and lawyers whose obstruction of justice tactics included the many violations of federally protected rights. The issues other than reporting the criminal activities included the following: Demand for an order halting the record-setting numbers of civil and constitutional violations against former federal agent and activist, Rodney Stich that were part of the bizarre scheme to block his reporting of corruption in key government offices, including the FAA and NTSB. The authority for this relief is the Civil Rights Act (42 U.S.C. §§ 1983-1988), Title 28 U.S.C. § 1343, the Declaratory Judgment Act, and the constitutional rights embodied in the Bivens doctrine. This right was denied in 2001. Declaratory judgment to declare Stich's personal and property rights established in multiple judgments that were taken by California and federal judges in clear violation of state and federal laws. The scheme to strip Stich of the assets that funded his exposure activities consisted of a lawsuit barred by federal and state law for which federal defenses exist under the Declaratory Judgment Act and Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 57, and the Civil Rights Act. Declaratory judgment to declare as void the orders by federal judges taking Stich's $10 million in assets that funded his exposure of corruption in judicial and government offices. These orders taking Stich's life assets violated the legal and constitutional requirement of a noticed hearing, a hearing, and reason for seizing. Supreme Court decisions hold that such orders are void and are forever void. Stich was entitled to a declaratory judgment addressing these orders taking Stich's home, his businesses, his real estate his assets, his sole source of income, everything. This right was denied. Damages for the civil and constitutional violations occurring in the federal courts by federal judges and lawyers who acted in unison with the judges. This right is provided by constitutional provisions as articulated in the Bivens doctrine. This right was denied. Corruption-Enabled Events That Motivated The Former Government-Agent 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. Harm to the American public in non-violent areas. Harm to people of other countries. Harm to the few people in the United States fighting the high-level corruption in a meaningful manner. Harm in general. Sampling of Early Consequences Sampling of Harmful Consequences of the Corruption, Cover-Ups, and Attacks upon the Corruption-Fighting Activist During then period from the 1960s when the corruption-fighting activist fought to halt the corruption, the resulting harm, the deaths, and the catastrophic events, continued to worsen. It is probably impossible to understand the enormity of the sufferings resulting from this misconduct that is epidemic in the United States. 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. 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. politicians—supported 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 Afghanistan—with the help of a dumbed-down American public that is mostly too lazy to learn the truth. Books by Professionals in Key Government Positions Revealing the Truth Between Corruption and Tragic Consequences Over a dozen highly detailed and documented books revealing a nation's leaders as riddled with corruption with a history of resulting tragedies. These are heavily details books written by granddaddy of corruption-exposing whistleblower Rodney Stich with input from an unprecedented number of key personnel involved in covert and overt activities. They provide the material for a peaceful "Arab Spring" outrage among courageous Americans. (These books are available in print and digital format at www.amazon.com; www.google.com; and other web sites. At each site, put "Rodney Stich" into the search box for a list of these books. All of the books are available at amazon.com, in print and on digital formats, and at many other Internet sites. They bring together the various pieces of the puzzle to better understand the overall picture, and why the same conditions continue year after year. Information on the books by former government agent Rodney Stich. Sampling of early books reviews. Sampling of complimentary letters/faxes to author/activist Rodney Stich. Commendation of the granddaddy of corruption reporting whistleblowers. His background and credibility. Bio on granddaddy of corruption exposing and corruption fighting whistleblowers. These books are not-for-profit; they were first published when Stich had assets in the 1980s of about $10 million, and had no need for book profits. Department of Justice personnel and federal judges corruptly seized these assets that were "foolishly" being used to fund the exposure of the widespread corruption. When a former key federal agent and his large group of other key people with direct knowledge in various government operations, with the background and credibility of Rodney Stich, provides such detailed information on corrupt actions by key officials in government, that had already resulted in such calamitous events, and cover-ups that insures a continuation of these matters, and there is total non-response, there has to be a matter of such grave implications in the governing structure of the United States that the matters are either being protected, possibly to protect the existing government oligarchy, or, the consequences are so horrendous that they are avoided like the "third rail." Similarities Between German People Under Adolf Hitler And American People Under Their Government Oligarchy A poem written by Martin Niemoller, relating to how Germans tolerate Adolf Hitler is especially suitable to most Americans today: First they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Jew. Then they came for the Communists, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Communist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out, because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak out for me. Pastor Martin Niemöller Pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) first supported the rise of Adolf Hitler, and then upon learning the truth, and objecting, he was imprisoned. He wrote a poem about the state of denial of Germans about what Hitler was doing. Probably no better example could be shown than what has been done to the American people, in their name, while they ignored the outrages. The first step is to become informed. And with the vast cover-ups, disinformation, and blatant lying by U.S. politicians, media personnel, and political pundits, this requires a little effort. In searching for information, don't be misled by wild conspiracy theories, and go where facts can be found, including courageous (and foolish) insiders who speak out in defense of the country. Sadly, fewer people read such books (preferring trivia reading), rarely read newspapers (which is one small step to becoming informed). Therefore, the future is bleak, made possible by the corruption detailed here and in the books, the cover-ups, and the public's indifference to their responsibilities. International Consequences from the Culture in the U.S. Millions of killed civilians in foreign countries and many more crippled and maimed from the serial lying rampant of U.S. politicians and their shills. Over a hundred thousand dead Americans and triple that number of maimed and wounded GIs in wars started and continued, since the end of World War II, on the basis of serial lying by U.S. politicians and lying by bureaucrats. These wars include the U.S. invasions of Korea; Vietnam; Cambodia, Laos; Grenada; Panama; Afghanistan; Iraq; Libya; Syria; and more to come. Decades of undermining foreign governments, assassinating or attempting to assassinate foreign leaders, providing training used against the people of other countries, and much more. Self-serving and other conduct by U.S. politicians that generated the greatest number of people in the world's history wanting to kill Americans, and virtually no thought given by the uninformed and sheep-like American public to the deadly consequences. The killing, or murders, of people, including infants and children, using drones, in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen, and elsewhere. The consequences will, naturally, be experienced by Americans, our children, for generations to come.
