Introduction to the Legal-Judicial
World of Intrigue and Corruption
Stich, a former Naval aviator, airline pilot, and federal aviation safety agent, had discovered extensive corruption related to a series of major airline disasters after he was assigned the task of correcting the conditions responsible for the worst series of airline disasters in the nation's history, at that time.
corrupt activities in the FAA that Stich discovered during his
official duties had been
responsible for conditions that resulted in a number of fatal catastrophic
airline disasters. So concerned was Stich for the continuing deaths that he
used the law in such a manner that he acted similar to an independent
prosecutor, conducting hearings during a four month period that further
proved his charges.
Part of his final closing brief warned the hearing officer, William Jennings from the FAA administrator's office (a lawyer), of the catastrophic consequences that would occur if he engaged in a cover-up.
During the hearing, three more airline disasters occurred, each of which were caused by the exact same safety problems and safety violations that Stich had repeatedly reported, for which he received retaliation from FAA management, who sought to destroy the official reports. The most revealing of the deep-seated corruption in the FAA was the United Airlines Boeing 727 crash at Salt Lake City. (Details in Unfriendly Skies: 20th and 21st Centuries.)
The standard cover-up then followed, along with retaliation, causing Stich to leave government service. The crashes continued, and with the larger size of the newer aircraft, the death toll in each disaster was higher than in the past.
Having encountered the standard cover-ups by members of Congress and Department of Justice personnel, Stich sought to generate interest in the public by publishing books and appearing as guest on hundreds of radio and television shows. These appearances started in 1978 and now number over 3,000.
The continuation of the airline disasters (including easily preventable hijackings) caused Stich to use another tactic seeking to force any of the several government offices responsible for taking action to cease their cover-ups.
Two federal statutes provided the answer: the federal crime reporting statute; and the statute permitting any citizen to seek a court order forcing a federal official to perform his or her legal duty and to halt their corrupt activities.
The federal crime reporting statute requires that anyone who knows of a federal crime must promptly report it "to a federal judge or other federal official." Federal judges are then required, by the criminal statute, to receive the information as part of the judge's mandatory administrative duties. Refusal to receive the information, or taking any other act to prevent the reporting of a federal crime to a federal judge, would constitute obstruction of justice, or worse.
These lawsuits were filed in the federal courts in California between 1978 and 1982.
Although judges admitted the gravity of the charges, upon objection by Department of Justice lawyers, the judges refused to allow the information of criminal activities to be presented. These were criminal acts under the obstruction of justice statutes.
The crashes and deaths caused or enabled to occur by the same corruption that Stich tried to report, continued to occur. Judges and Department of Justice lawyers were then implicated in the deaths.
In the second edition of Unfriendly Skies, the book described the judicial cover-ups and resulting crashes and deaths, naming the district and appellate judges who were implicated in the cover-ups. This put them at risk of impeachment and possible criminal prosecution (if the cover-ups by Justice Department officials could be circumvented).
Shortly thereafter, the CIA-front San Francisco law firm of Friedman, Sloan and Ross, and their lawyers, filed a sham lawsuit against Stich, placing a fictitious label on it that permitted the court to immediately separate Stich from these assets.
The intent of that lawsuit, filed by the San Francisco CIA-front law firm of Friedman, Sloan and Ross, was to strip that former federal agent of all his assets and thereby halt his costly exposure activities. The exposure activities included publishing the not-for-profit books, and appearing on radio and television shows throughout the country. Starting in 1978, he has to this date appeared as guest and expert on over 3,000 of these shows.
That lawsuit, filed in the state courts at Fairfield, California, violated blocks of state and federal laws, any one of which required immediate dismissal. Incredibly, every judge of the California appellate courts approved the massive violations of state and federal law, insuring that the CIA-front law firm was protected, along with its goal of stripping Stich of the assets that funded his exposure activities.
Since the violations occurring in the California courts constituted violations of federally protected rights, for which multiple federal remedies existed, that guaranteed an right to federal court access and orders halting the violations.
Brief Overview On Parallel Legal Judicial Tactics
The same federal judges who blocked the reporting of the criminal activities, and were implicated in the resulting deaths, then repeatedly violated every protections that they were paid and entrusted to provide. Their actions protected the scheme, protected the CIA-front law firm and lawyers, and protected the California judges who became part of the scheme.
Without going into detail on this page, for those who are interested in these details, they are described in a lawsuit filed in the federal courts at Reno, Nevada. That lawsuit raised several issues, including:
Before U.S. District Judge Edward
Reed stopped the action, thereby covering up for the corruption and the
participants, the 9/11 hijackings occurred. Since the hijackings were made
possible by the corruption Stich sought to report, and the various roles
played in the cover-up of such corruption by each of the lawyers, law firms,
and judges that Stich named in the lawsuit, Stich filed a declaration into
that action. (MS
Without going in the many other details, federal judges and the CIA-front law firm seized Stich's assets, violating the requirement of a hearing, notice of hearing, and legally required cause. From 1987 to 1997, they stripped Stich of his life's assets, converting him from a multi-millionaire to a state of poverty. Today, in his eighties, he lives on his modest Social Security payments.
Last Lawsuit Prior to 9/11,
Seeking to Report
Areas of Corruption That Would Make 3,000 Deaths Possible
The former federal agent filed a lawsuit, prior to 9/11, in the federal courts at Reno, Nevada, seeking to report the corrupt activities that he and a group of other government agents had discovered. Also, the action named as defendants, lawyers and judges who were covering up for the crimes and engaging in multiple parallel legal schemes to inflict great personal and financial harm upon him. Among the various federal claims were that that fell under the RICO act for a series of predicate acts to obstruct justice and inflict great harm.
During the attempt to provide these reports, the events of 9/11 occurred. A declaration was filed in that lawsuit related to the blame for 9/11, emphasizing the need for the judge to receive reports of the criminal activities (that he had been blocking). (MS Word) (Adobe pdf)
That declaration was ignored by federal judge Edward Reed at Reno and the Ninth Circuit court of appeals judges.
Lawsuit Filed After
9/11 in NYC, Seeking to
Report Corrupt Activities That Enabled 9/11 to Occur
Stich made one last effort to report the corrupt activities and the felony cover-ups that made 9/11 possible. He submitted for filing a lawsuit on August 15, 2002, in the U.S. district court for the Southern District of New York. The purpose of the lawsuit was to report and expose the corrupt activities that created the conditions enabling hijackers to seize four airliners, and the misconduct adversely affecting major national issues, including national security. That lawsuit also addressed the massive civil rights violations that were part of the parallel efforts to block the reports of these crimes against the United States.
Sham Lawsuits against
Former Federal Agent by
South Carolina Law Firm with CIA-Connections
After Stich filed his latest lawsuit that threatened to expose the entire pattern of judicial and legal fraternity corruption, various tactics were commenced to again halt his activities. One of these legal fraternity stunts was the filing of a lawsuit against Stich by the Charleston, South Carolina, law firm of Smith and Collins, and their attorneys, David Athell Collins and Steven L. Smith.
Although the lawsuit was directed at Stich and the publishing company, people who would be harmed by it would be those who are victimized by the corruption Stich seeks to publicize through his book publishing. That includes the victims of fraud related to air safety; the victims of the arrogant and corrupt was on drugs; the victim of the bankruptcy court fraud; and the victims of the many other criminal activities implicating people in key government positions, federal and California judges, and many others.
That same lawyer and law firm several years later filed a lawsuit seeking to discredit CBS 60-Minute exposure of President George Bush II Texas Air National Guard record, further suggesting links to government sources.
The allegations in the lawsuit were immediately disproved by the facts to which they referred. By filing the lawsuit in a state court where judicial corruption is even worse than in federal courts, and where one-time state judges act to reward certain legal friends, the chances of Stich prevailing were virtually nil.
The law firm knew that Stich had no assets to pay for legal counsel 3,000 miles away, before a judge who is often in the pocket of certain law firms and attorneys. They knew that the publishing company had no assets other than the books, and that it was literally a non-profit operation. Their goal apparently was to obtain a default judgment and then seize control of the books and the name of the books. This scheme would protect the California and federal judges, the legal fraternity whose involvement in the corruption goes back 40 years, as stated in each of Stich's books, would protect Justice Department personnel, members of Congress, and the corruption at United Airlines that caused such brutal consequences for the victim of its fraud.
No Basis for Jurisdiction in South Carolina Court
Stich had no connection to the State of South Carolina. Neither did Diablo Western Press. It had no office there and solicited no business there.
Attorney David Athell Collins first contacted Stich through a June 8, 2000 letter, falsely stating:
"Stich makes certain accusations against my client. Essentially, Mr. Stich has accused my client of killing his ex-wife and that the murder was covered up."
The book, Drugging America, clearly did not make any such statement or insinuation. (However, the information provided by the Army medical doctor to Stich suggests such a possibility, but this was not addressed in the book, and the focus of that section was on the DOJ retaliation against the media doctor for his Army reserve unit refusing to provide helicopter involvement in the Ruby Ridge siege and murders.
Stich responded with a June 29, 2000 letter, making it clear that no such charge was made by the clear wording in the book. (MS Word) (Adobe PDF)
Another South Carolina law firm involved was Horger, Horger, Lanier & Knight, and Troy Guerard Knight, of Sommerville, South Carolina. The number of lawyers involved in the scheme far exceeded any money they could obtain from Stich, who had already been stripped of his assets and survived on modest Social Security payments. The intent was to seize the books and thereby end Stich's ability to expose the corruption that by then implicated many groups in many related tragedies.
Disregarding the absence of jurisdiction over a California resident, the South Carolina judge, Jackson V. Gregory, rendered a $3 million default judgment against Stich and Diablo Western Press.
That South Carolina law firm then paid California lawyers to file an action in the California courts to enter the South Carolina default judgment as a local California judgment, and then seize the books exposing the corruption in government offices.
Eventually over a dozen lawyers became involved in the actions against the former federal agent, even though they knew that prior legal schemes had stripped him of all assets and that he was literally judgment-proof as a result.
Although Collins knew that federal judges had seized all of Stich's assets and that he had none to seize, tens of thousands of dollars in legal fees were spent to continue the action, solely to seize the books that would have no value to them. The California lawyers were Irwin J. Eskanos and Barry Adler of Concord, California.
The same California judicial system that had played key roles against Stich in unison with a CIA-front law firm, then refused to recognize California law that barred the filing, including Stich's protection under the SLAPP doctrine. That doctrine provides defense against lawsuits seeking to retaliate against people exposing corruption, including corruption in government offices. In this case, the 3,000 deaths on 9/11 were only one-day's consequences of the corruption. (MS Word) (Adobe PDF)
Among the defenses Stich filed, under California law, was a defense against the default judgment from South Carolina being entered as a local judgment in California. (MS Word) (Adobe PDF)

Facts Surfaced In Legal Newspaper
Article That the
Law Firm Had Close CIA or Other Government Ties
The facts strongly indicate that Collins and his law firm were acting for unknown sources in government, not only against Stich, but against those who were exposing President George Bush's delinquent air national guard record. Similar acts were done to discredit Operation Tailwind.
Lawyers Involved in RICO Crimes With Judges
One of the most unrecognized causes of most of the nation's prior tragedies is the ripple effect, sometimes called the "butterfly effect." For simplicity, let's look at the events of 9/11 and the 3,000 people who were horribly killed, and look at the many people who hold a complicity role in those events:
The people with the
legal responsibility for preventing airliners from being hijacked are the
people in the government's aviation safety offices: the FAA. This area has
been carefully avoided during congressional hearings and by the 9/11
Commission members. This is one of the key areas of
that Stich sought to report, for which lawyers and
judges joined together to halt Stich's exposure actions and to retaliate
against him for attempting to make such reports. All of them committed
criminal acts that were involved in thousands of deaths, in only one of
the affected areas!
Secondary responsibilities for the 9/11 hijackings were with the FBI-DOJ and CIA. Although the 9/11 Commission blamed them for neglect, they covered up for the criminal culture in these two groups. It was the corrupt culture in the FBI-DOJ that blocked individual agents from completing their investigations of the terrorists. It was the corrupt CIA culture that devoted more time to their corrupt actions that were crimes against the United States than they spent in trying to find intelligence relating to the scheme to hijack U.S. airliners.
Pasadena Lawyer John
Joined the Schemes
The latest attempt in the history of a CIA-front law firm, lawyers, and various judges, acting in unison, involved a Pasadena lawyer, John D. Guerrini. The prior attempts have been to seize the books exposing to the public the corruption in certain government offices−especially the federal courts−that were precursors to various tragedies. In one area, the ripple effects were felt on September 11, 2001.
Since there are no funds, and no insurance, the only goal would be to seize the books exposing the corruption, the legal schemes to prevent the public from learning of the corruption, and the tragic and deadly consequences of the corruption and the legal schemes.
On July 20, 2006, Pasadena lawyer John Guerrini took over to exert efforts to halt Stich's exposure of the corruption that included that which made 9/11 possible. He knew:
Prior to Guerrini joining the "enterprise," another attorney, Mark Wray of Reno, was asked to take over the collection of the judgment. During a telephone conversation on August 8, 2003, Wray advised Stich he would have nothing to do with the action.
Great American Tragedies Enabled
by Lawyers, Judges,
Department of Justice Simultaneous 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.
Harm to the American public in non-violent areas.
Harm to the few people in the United States fighting the high-level corruption in a meaningful manner.
Harm inflicted on former federal agent and whistleblower during multiple schemes to silence him.
Sampling of Early Consequences
TWA Flight 800
U.S. Embassy Bombings
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.
One of Over 200 Victims Choosing This Way to
Made Possible by Many Enablers in United States
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. 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.
