This Generation's Bequest to Today's Children— And Their Children—from Endemic Corruption, Cover-Ups, and Public Indifference For several decades, many people, former professionals in some of America's most sensitive positions, have risked their careers, have suffered harm unprecedented in any modern industrial nation, have exposed corruption of key people in the three branches of the federal government that were causing, or enabling, great harm, deaths, and even catastrophic disasters. Indifference, dumbed-down by America's lapdog media, obsession with trivia, and deteriorating values, enabled the corruption and the consequences to continue. Evidence of these matters was made available in a series of books, based upon a half century of discoveries by several dozen insiders, professionals in former covert and law enforcement operations, but mostly unread by the trivia-obsessed American public. Sampling of the Harm Resulting from the Endemic Corruption Centered In the Three Branches of the Federal Government Series of horrific aviation disasters in the earlier days of aviation, starting in the 1960s, enabled by corruption, politics, and the standard incompetence in government positions. Harm inflicted directly upon American people, primarily by the corrupt culture of people in control of the U.S. Department of Justice that is unprecedented in any modern industrial nation. Harm upon the United States that was made possible by the arrogant and corrupt acts of U.S. politicians and top personnel in the U.S. Department of Justice. Discover how the resource-rich United States was turned into a cesspool for many Americans. Harm upon people of other countries, such as Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Afghanistan, Iraq, and now the entire Middle East, from the arrogant and corrupt acts of U.S. politicians—with plenty of support from throughout the United States. American public as a feeding trough, as the American public is used as a feeding trough for those in power. Missing the outrage and courage shown by the people in the Middle East, and obsessed with childlike pacifiers, the American public does nothing! Sampling of Endless Corruption and Tragedies Among the serious corruption in government that insiders brought to the attention of the unresponsive American public: Repeated sampling of the corrupt and criminal acts of key people in government and the resulting harm from that misconduct. The documented corruption in the FAA and at a politically-powerful airline, withheld from the public, that resulted in a long series of aviation disasters—that should not have occurred without the corrupt conduct and cover-ups. The unlawful, unconstitutional, and criminal acts taken against whistleblowers, such as the corruption fighting activist, Captain Rodney Stich, inflicting great personal and financial harm upon him, through sham criminal contempt of court charges and other acts (and six months prison). These attacks involved covert FBI-CIA law firms and their attorneys, California judges, federal judges, and required a powerful force in the federal government to coordinate and protect the perpetrators. That would be a powerful force inside the U.S. Department of Justice—the same group where decades of murders were routine and rewarded. Standard American Reaction to America's Corruption-Exposing Patriots The standard reaction to this information included, for instance: Cover ups by members of Congress and Department of Justice, both of whom were various levels of complicity in the corrupt activities. Cover ups by America's lapdog media people—many on the secret payroll of the CIA and other government entities, political pundits, and others. The corruption and decades of worsening resulting tragedies could not have occurred without that criminal cover-up. Almost total indifference by the American public when insiders, professionals, and others, provided details of the corruption. One example was the total indifference by the American public to the evidence of years of complicity in murders by FBI and other Department of Justice personnel in the Boston offices. With such deplorable public reaction, it can be argued that a the American public needs a conservator to protect their interest (stated with astonishment at the total lack of public responsibility). Sham schemes and charges to silence whistleblowers, filed by personnel of the U.S. Department of Justice, and assisted by federal judges. Corruptly misusing government power, they inflict long prison sentences upon anyone exposing corruption. One example is the criminal misuse of such power against highly decorated Vietnam helicopter pilot, Richard Taus, who repeatedly risked his life to evacuate wounded GIs while under heavy military fire. Discover what was done to him when, as an FBI agent in the New York City offices, he reported corruption to members of Congress. Also, how the American public thereafter suffered consequences unprecedented in the nation's history. Rare Patriots Chasing Windmills Many whistleblowers spoke out during the 1980s about the corruption in international affairs, and many books were written—with no public outrage. A partial list follows: Fallen heroes. Whistleblowers index. Whistleblower types. Whistleblowers as American ombudsmen. Corruption-Fighting Activist— Fighting Powerful U.S. Oligarchy In the 1960s, when horrific airline disasters were a routine event, one department of the FAA gave Captain Rodney Stich the unprecedented life-and-death-assignment to halt the corruption at a major politically-powerful airline and the corruption at the overseeing FAA office. That While attempting to carry out that assignment, he came under intense attacks while reporting the corrupt conduct that he found. The attacks enabled two additional major airline disasters to occur at that airline. That became a major worldwide aviation disasters scandal and a total cover-up. All segments of government intervened to keep the public from learning how the deaths were made possible by the corrupt and criminal acts of others. Involved in the cover-ups and protections of the perpetrators were personnel in the U.S. Department of Justice, NTSB political board members, members of Congress, media personnel, and others. Over the following years, joined by other government personnel, information was obtained that showed corruption and resulting harm in other government operations. Stich used this information in fighting the corruption. One tactic was the file federal lawsuits under the federal crime reporting statute, Title 18 U.S.C. § 4, making public knowledge of the serious matters that were unprecedented in any modern industrial nation. The need for further cover-ups to protect those people in control of the system undermined his efforts. He then used an even more extraordinary tactic to fight the power brokers responsible for the endemic corruption and endless series of catastrophic events. His adversaries, which he fought since the 1960s in his life-and-death-assignment, included: Department of Justice personnel, where the FBI-DOJ murderous culture provided a sampling of how low they routinely went. In addition to protecting the personnel that retaliated against him while an FAA inspector on the life and death assignment, a later DOJ approach was the scheme using lawyers and law firms to strip him of the assets that funded his fighting activities, making him homeless, and criminally misusing the DOJ and cooperating federal judges to send him to prison—for reporting the corruption! Federal judges, whose cover-ups were repeatedly documented as Stich was blocked from reporting the federal crimes under the federal crime reporting statute, Title 18 U.S.C. § 4. California judges, who repeatedly violated dozens of state and federal laws to insure that the DOJ scheme succeeded. Hoard of lawyers and law firms, starting in 1982 with the San Francisco CIA-front law firm of Friedman, Sloan and Ross, and continuing until 2005 with other lawyers and law firms, including the Gratzer group in South Carolina, and others. A every stage of attacks, either in the sham lawsuit filed in the California courts, or the sham criminal contempt of court for reporting the corruption under the federal crime reporting statute, every lawyer sabotaged my defenses. The worse included Las Vegas lawyer Joshua Landish and Sacramento lawyer Joel Pegg. My prior exercise of hundreds of hours doing legal research for my early lawsuits against the FAA and NTSB provide the expertise to file appeals and make a record of what had occurred. The start of the terrorist successes, made possible by the corruption, caused me to expand on my extra-ordinary fighting efforts. Richard Taus, other patriots, and Captain Stich, suffered for attempting to protect the American public from great harm, while the American public—like sheep—remained unresponsive; more like Pontius Pilate (the Roman governor who presided over the sham trial for Jesus, and approved the false charges). Today, Captain Stich, in his nineties, continues his fight, while the American public continues to aid and abet the corruption by cowardice and in difference, that results in great tragedies—and insuring that their children will suffer even worse consequences. Emergency Petition to Justice Byron White Due to Urgent National Matters On October 5, 1991, corruption-fighting whistleblower Rodney Stich submitted to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Byron White an Emergency Petition that reported serious corruption in the three branches of the federal government and the continuing history of tragic consequences: Series airline disasters discovered by key FAA airline safety inspector due to corrupt conduct of multiple key personnel in the FAA and other government positions. Corrupt conduct with adverse national and international consequences. Start of terrorist successes due to corrupt conduct of personnel in the U.S. Department of Justice and other government positions. Harm upon American people Harm upon the United States Criminal activities discovered by Captain Rodney Stich and his coalition of confidants, consisting of former professionals in the intelligence and law enforcement operations. Criminal attacks upon the whistleblower by personnel of the U.S. Department of Justice, federal judges, and others carrying out a DOJ scheme to block the reporting of the corruption. Corrupt conduct by federal judges, major played in the criminal cover-ups of the deadly criminal activities, and in the corrupt attacks upon Captain Rodney Stich and other former federal agents reporting the endemic high-level corruption. The initial reaction to that Emergency Petition was a standard clerk-issued denial. Petition for Reconsideration Submitted to Justice White Petition for Reconsideration submitted by Captain Rodney Stich to Supreme Court Justice Byron White. (October 15, 1991) Unprecedented Supreme Court Justice Reply Apology— As a Single Justice—for Not Being Able to Help Such petitions are responded to by the clerk of the U.S. Supreme Court, through a formal denial notice or notice of additional action. In this petition, raising matters of urgent national interests, Supreme Court Justice Byron White made an unprecedented personal response, with an even more unprecedented apology for not being able to help. His brief but revealing October 21,1991, unprecedented personal response and apology stated: Dear Mr. Stich, As a single Justice I can be of no help to you. I am returning your petition. Sincerely yours, Byron White Prior Unprecedented Lawsuit Filed Against Justices of U.S. Supreme Court http://www.defraudingamerica.com/lawsuit_against_supreme_court_justices.html. The lawsuit was based on their cover-ups of serious tragedies-related corruption, in which the Justices did not deny the charges, relying upon their immunity from lawsuits. That lawsuit was filed two years prior to the personal letter from Justice Byron White to Stich. Justice White's apology was sent while that lawsuit was pending. Before—and After—Harm Associated with The Corrupt Conduct Stated in That Emergency Petition Sampling of the corruption in areas raised in the petition, and the great harm associated with the corruption, occurring prior to the 1991 petition: Series of aviation disasters enabled by corruption of key management personnel in the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and those covering up for it, and retaliating against inspectors seeking to correct the deadly problems. Some of these disasters were the reason for FAA airline safety inspector Rodney Stich being given the life-and-death assignment to halt the crash-enabling corruption; some occurred during the time he was seeking to halt the corruption; and some occurred after the series of officially-documented corrupt actions that blocked the carrying out of that assignment. Pan Am Flight 103. December 21, 1988. FBI-DOJ personnel involved in the prosecution against Stich perpetrated criminal frauds by planting bogus evidence, protecting the two groups actually responsible, and charging two totally innocent Libyans and Libya for the bombing. By covering up for the actual groups responsible for the bombing, and planting evidence to shift blame to two Libyans and Libya, U.S. interests were harmed. 1979. October Surprise. This covert operation did not result in any catastrophic event, but was one of an endless number of covert operations that involved U.S. politicians and corrupted the presidential election between President Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan. FBI-DOJ personnel in Boston government offices involved in murderous activities covering three decades with brutal organized crime figure in Boston with James "Whitey" Bulger. FBI-DOJ personnel in New York City's government offices involved in several decades of murderous activities with New York City Mafia capo, Gregory Scarpa, Sr. That relationship eventually played a major enabling role in a series of forewarned al Qaeda attacks that constituted the worst series of terrorist attacks in the nation's history! 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center, made possible by the corruption in the New York City FBI offices. 1996 downing of TWA Flight 800, July 17, 1996. Made possible by DOJ personnel deep-sixing advance notice of al Qaeda attacks. 1998 bombing of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. August 7, 1998. Made possible by DOJ personnel deep-sixing advance notice of al Qaeda attacks. The hijackings of four U.S. airliners on September 11, 2001. See enablers. Subsequent series of lies preceded the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq, starting in October 2001. U.S. politicians called that deadly attack on Afghans, Operation Enduring Freedom. The invasion of Iraq started on March 19, 2003, and called, Operation Iraqi Freedom. See also comparison of blame between Afghanistan and Iraq as compared to the corruption repeated reported by the corruption-fighting whistleblower. These examples of the corrupt culture in America's leaders, using disasters that their corruption made possible, brought about even greater harm to the nation and its people. Much of the above grave tragedies and deaths could have been prevented if the Justices had not refused to respond to the filings of the corruption-fighting whistleblower, the first of multiple filings in the 1970s.

Great American Tragedies Enabled by Corruption, Cover Up by Supreme Court Justices, And DOJ-Judicial Attacks on Whistleblowers In addition to the harm upon individual Americans, the feeding trough of those in control, known to the American people by courageous insiders for the prior 25 years, the resulting harm from the endemic corruption and cover-ups expanded. Oversea victims of the actions by U.S. politicians and the CIA reacted with the start of terrorist successes: The downing of PAA Flight 103 over Lockerbie. The downing of TWA Flight 800. The bombing of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. The hijackings of four airliners on 9/11. Department of Justice personnel, involved in deep-sixing the advance information of the terrorist attacks provided by the mole in the al Qaeda cell, embedded in the 9/11 Commission to cover up for the many terrorism enablers in the three branches of the federal government—and their shills. The deadly invasion of Afghanistan—which had no knowledge or role in the 911 attacks, and preceded by serial lying of U.S. politicians. The Taliban government, who had offered to turn the small al Qaeda group over to a third country for trial, were now an additional enemy of the United States. The deadly invasion of Iraq, preceded by even more blatant lying, with the complicity of U.S. lapdog media, making fools of the sheep-like American masses acting as a feeding trough for the ruling oligarchy. What had been a small band of al Qaeda members—angered by the combined Israeli and American brutalities upon the occupied and annexed Palestinian land—grew into the largest body of people in world history that wanted to kill Americans. Their hatred and ability to kill Americans are bequeathed to today's children by the trivia-obsessed and war-obsessed adults of today. The volatile-prone Middle East, that was once relatively peaceful, has now imploded, Although the number of enablers that made the 9/11 and earlier attacks possible were throughout the three branches of government, the one criminal scheme that made those al Qaeda attacks possible was the deep-sixing of the critical information provided by a mole in the al Qaeda cell and his New York City attorney—the purpose of which was to prevent the American public from learning of the decades of FBI-DOJ involvement in murders. Refusing to be a Feeding Trough Unlike the people forming the feeding trough in the United States—unresponsive to what has been done to them for decades through various forms of obvious corrupt leaders—the people in the Middle East have arisen to the tragedies inflicted upon them. A brief list: U.S. overthrow of the democratically-elected Iranian government in 1953. (Captain Stich was in Abadan, Iran, the morning that the revolution started. U.S. murder of 290 people on an Iranian Airliner that departed Abadan for Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, carrying Muslim pilgrims on the hajj, and flying on a civil airways. President Reagan justified the murders, and President H.W. Bush (sr.) gave the arrogant Navy ship commander a medal. U.S. providing Iraq with money and weapons, and intelligence, during Iraq's war against Iran—including U.S. approval of Iraq's use of chemical weapons. (Despite Iraq's use of chemical weapons approved by U.S. politicians, Iran did not retaliate with chemical weapons.) U.S. politicians, subservient to the political Israeli Zionist lobby, provided billions of dollars to Israel, provided weapons, that repeatedly killed unarmed Palestinians, knowing that it inflamed hatred against the United States, and motivated al Qaeda to initiate attacks upon U.S. targets. These same U.S. politicians withheld defense and then covered up for the hours of murderous attacks upon the USS Liberty that killed and wounded large numbers of Navy personnel—whose interests and protections were subverted to Israeli interests. Continuing Self-Serving Cover-Ups By Supreme Court Justices: More or Worse of Before After 9/11, Captain Rodney Stich wrote to Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court concerning serious matters that were enabled by corruption brought to their attention over the years, that they chose to cover-Up: October 20, 2013, letter sent to every Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, providing information showing their cover-up culture that enabled great American tragedies to occur: examples of the "butterfly effect." www.defraudingamerica.com/sup_crt_justice_roberts_cert_oct_20_2013. October 20, 2013, letter sent to every Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, providing information showing their cover-up culture that enabled great American tragedies to occur: examples of the "butterfly effect." www.defraudingamerica.com/supreme_court_justices_complicity. www.defraudingamerica.com/corruption_fighting_whistleblower. Combined this site with www.defraudingamerica.com/supreme_court_justices_secrets. "Incurable" Stage IV Cancer-Like Stage The United States is in a near "incurable" Stage IV-like cancerous stage. The corruption has gone far beyond the original stage due to the cover-ups and resulting harm, deaths, and other tragedies. The leaders of all three branches of the federal government are criminally implicated; media corporations, media people, and political pundits have for the past 40 years covered up for the corruption, lied to the public, and are now incapable of revealing what they made possible. Sampling of people notified, if then covered up: Letter list to members of Congress from 1965 to present date. Letter list to Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court. Letter list relating to al Qaeda mole providing advance information. Letters relating to corruption enabling terrorist successes. Letter list to New York state officials. Letter list 9/11 Commission. Letter list to media corporations. Sampling of lawsuits filed to report the corruption under the federal crime reporting statute, Title 18 U.S.C. § 4. lawsuit against FAA. lawsuit against NTSB. lawsuit, amicus curiae DC-10. Lawsuit against Supreme Court Justices. Lawsuit against U.S. media corporations. Lawsuit against media. Lawsuit against members of Congress. Lawsuit filed in federal courts in Reno just prior to 9/11 (but while other corruption-enabled terrorist attacks were occurring). Post-9/11 lawsuit filed in federal courts in the District of Columbia. Post-9/11 lawsuit filed in federal courts in New York City index. Federal filing to Supreme Court related to lower court dismissals of the post-9/11 lawsuit. Lawsuit list. It is not totally hopeless, but nearly so. Books Revealing 40 Years of Misconduct and a Mosaic of Misconduct Throughout the U.S. Government— |With Worldwide Consequences Detailed books by insiders revealing the growth of corruption and resulting harm. Over a dozen highly detailed and documented books revealing a nation's leaders as riddled with corruption with a history of resulting tragedies. These books are written by the 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. 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. Similarities Between German People Under Adolf Hitler And American People Under U.S. Government Leaders 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. More Comments The documented history of conduct, culture, and resulting events, starting with the birth of the CIA after the end of World War II. Corruption affecting the American people for the past 50 years reveals what today's children—and their children—will experience from the conduct of their parents. To understand the tragedies that are being bequeathed to the children requires, finally, to exert the energy, and some semblance of citizen responsibility, to get, at least, a primitive understanding of these matters. The following beginner's treatise provides information based on the findings of many professionals in such operations as the CIA, FBI, DEA, Customs, FAA, NTSB, former drug smugglers—working for CIA and DEA personnel, former Mafia insiders, and others. Brief Sampling of information on corruption in top personnel in the three branches of the federal government: FAA corruption and a series of horrific aviation disasters in which the enablers were always protected. NTSB political board members whose cover-ups of crash-enabled corruption made possible the continuation of the consequences in other aviation disasters—including those perpetrated by terrorists. Decades of murders of American citizens by FBI agents in the Boston and New York City offices, known and approved by top officials in the U.S. Department of Justice in Washington. Sampling of the criminal activities for which insiders have made information and documentation available for the unconcerned American public. Conduct by American politicians that generated explosive hatred against Americans. The culture of worsening arrogance, corruption, cover-Ups, and public apathy, that has bred continually worsening harm, deaths, and catastrophic events, for the past 40 years, bequeaths to today's children—and their children—even worse. Courtesy of all of the above, and the blissful indifference to today's parents. Today's generation of leaders and trivia-obsessed public, and their deteriorating morals, are bequeathing to their children and grandchildren. These parents of today's generation tolerated and enabled the corruption and resulting tragedies that occurred after the end of World War II, brought about by the corrupt acts of their leaders—and their own indifference. Required an investigation of the federal crimes and the perpetrators, under the responsibilities of the federal crime reporting statute, Title 18 U.S.C. § 4. The relationship of the reported corruption and the series of resulting harm—including numerous catastrophic consequences. (Similar filings were submitted to other Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court over a period of years.) As in any group, there are those few people whose character rebels against arrogance, corruption, and the resulting harm. The words in the pledge of allegiance, liberty and justice for all, are the words of people without the foggiest understanding of the actual status of those words. I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all An understanding of the corruption endemic in the top segments of the three branches of the federal government, the resulting harm to individual Americans, and the criminal misuse of government power to silence anyone exposing high-level corruption, shows the self-delusionary mockery of anyone uttering those words. A few references: Criminal activities that insiders made known to the American public. Sampling of harm directly upon the American people by arrogant bureaucrats. Sampling of harm upon the United States that indirectly affects the people. Sampling of the harm America's leaders inflicted upon people of other countries. How arrogant bureaucrats and politicians routinely use the American public as a feeding trough. Sampling of fallen heroes who exercised the courage to expose—or fight—harm-enabling corruption, and paid the price—while the see-no-evil American public remained silent. A recognition of whistleblowers as American ombudsmen, and should have the protections of law and the people. The following is an example of one corruption-fighting activist, who started the fight after being given the official and unprecedented life-and-death-assignment to halt the corruption at a major airline experiencing a long series of horrific disasters. None of the families of those who died know of the arrogance and corruption that brought such horror and sorrow to so many.
