Awesome Deadly Consequences

This is one of many problem areas in the government of the United States that have resulted in great harm, and many catastrophic consequences that are unknown to most people. Excellent examples of the "butterfly effects" of seemingly  remote acts or conduct. The combination of the culture of cover-ups in the United States and lack of curiosity of important matters by the American public insures the continuation of these awesome consequences.

Lawsuit against the FAA by Former FAA Inspector
Seeking to Report and Halt Widespread
 Corruption-Enabling Aviation Disasters




In an unprecedented attempt to circumvent the cover-up of deep-seated corruption in the government's aviation safety offices that enabled to occur a steady stream of deadly airline disasters, former federal airline safety investigator Rodney Stich filed federal lawsuits to report and halt the corrupt activities related to a series of airline disasters.

Rodney Stich filed the first of several lawsuits against the FAA and NTSB, seeking to report the documented corruption related to several recent major airline disasters. Federal district and appellate judges admitted the gravity of the charges, but upon motion by DOJ lawyers to block the suit, the judges states these were matters for Congress to investigate. Stich was not asking the federal judges to investigate the criminal activities, but to receive the reports as required by the federal crime reporting statute. The following are some of the legal filings:

Long  series of airline disasters followed, many resulting from either the misconduct, some of it criminal, and some ignored safety problems.

Appeal to Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court


The Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court were made aware of the serious and deadly federal crimes and the obstruction of justice tactics of the federal judges over whom the Justices had supervisory responsibilities. The Justices had the same responsibilities to receive the information of federal crimes as stated under the federal crime reporting statute. They also had responsibilities to intervene due to their supervisory responsibilities over federal judges. The Justices also became aware of the obstruction of justice tactics of employees of the U.S. Department of Justice, who had repeatedly blocked  Stich's attempts to report and halt the corruption.

Serious Judicial Problems That Would Escalate

The dismissal of the actions seeking to report ongoing criminal activities associated with an ongoing series of deadly consequences knowingly enabled the corruptioncrimes against the United Statesto continue. If the Justices had not covered up and had allowed the action to proceed, it is very probable that the culture of corruption in government positions would have received attention and major changes occurred that would have made major changes in government. And, that in turn would have prevented the worsening culture of corruption, and thereby prevent some of the major national harm and catastrophic events that did occur.


In subsequent years, as Stich became the figure to whom many other former government agents reported corrupt conduct that they discovered as part of their official duties, Stich would submit other filings and letters with the Justices of the U.S. Supreme court. By that point, the Justices had already become implicated by their prior cover-ups, and increased their obstructive actions.


Stich's Friend-of-the-Court Brief Addressing Worsening
FAA Misconduct Relating to the Deadly DC-10 Misconduct

The story of how the DC-10 was certified, knowing of major safety problems, was a classic example of how people died from the actions of FAA management personnel in the Western Region where Stich exposed massive corruption. As a result of the catastrophic DC-10 disaster near Paris, a lawsuit was filed.

Amicus curiae brief filed on July 17, 1975, in the Paris DC-10 multi-district litigation, Flanagan v. McDonnell Douglas Corporation and United States of America, Civil Action 74-808-PH, MDL 172, Central District California, addressing the long standing FAA misconduct, of which the cover-up of the DC-10 cargo door problem was one of repeated instances of tragedy related misconduct.

Rules of court required that Stich obtain the approval of the lead law firm in that action, and Stich did receive that approval. However, the judge dismissed Stich's filing before Stich could provide insider information on why FAA management had approved design defects that would knowingly result in major air disasters. Lawsuit details.

Justice Department lawyers and federal judges blocked the reporting and production of evidence related to the pattern of documented air safety and criminal violations associated with a series of specific airline crashes, and reflecting the culture that still exists, which played an undercover role in certain recent airline crashes. These activities made possible many airline crashes, fatal hijackings, and the terrorist hijackings of September 11, 2001.

Eventually, these same two groups retaliated against former FAA inspector Rodney Stich for attempting to report these corrupt and criminal activities, and inflicted grave personal and financial harm upon him to halt his exposure activities.

Subsequent Lawsuits Related to Corruption
In Other Areas of Government

The type of corruption that existed involving people responsible for aviation safety did not occur in a vacuum; it was a culture that existed in the conduct of people in control of other government operations. Over a period of years, as Stich discovered other areas of corruption from the long list of other government agents and insiders that contacted him, he sought to report these other matters, and was repeated blocked by federal judges and Department of Justice employees.

Just prior to the hijackings of four airliners on September 11, 2001, Stich filed a federal lawsuit that addressed:

Each and every one of the issues, and the defendants named in that lawsuit, were those that played primary roles for the conditions that made it easy for terrorists to hijack four airliners on 9/11, kill nearly 3,000 people, and set in motion events that had even greater catastrophic consequences for the United States. The following is that and two additional and final attempts to report these matters:

In every filing that involved the judges in the court of appeals, usually all of them, they become complicit in the cover-ups and became enablers to forward catastrophic events. That provided another incentiveprotecting themselves against criminal prosecutionto continue the long series of judicial obstruction of justice and judicial retaliation.

Recognizing the enormity of the corruption, the enormity of the cover-ups, the enormity of total indifference, including by the American public, former federal agent Rodney Stich gave up his attempts to use legal means to expose and halt the corruption, or even expect to force a change. He then devoted himself to documenting the sordid scenario for possible future generations that might be more responsive.

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.

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.
