The Hazards of Persevering in A Life-and-Death Government Assignment, Infiltrated with High-Level Corruption In the early 1960s, former Naval Aviator and international airline captain Rodney Stich, working as a federal airline safety inspector in the Los Angeles offices, was given the official assignment to halt the aviation safety corruption related to a series of aviation crashes at politically powerful United Airline, which required a transfer to Denver, where the airline's aviation training facilities were located. The continual series of crashes and deaths made this a life-and-death assignment. Other federal inspectors already knew of the serious problems at United Airlines, but were unable to halt the misconduct at the airline because of retaliation from high-ranking FAA management that was part of the politics of aviation safety. This deadly situation made the Federal Aviation Agency known to insiders as the "tombstone agency." The corruption at United Airlines, and the corruption within the FAA, was quickly recognized by Stich, and he promptly made official reports and tried to take corrective actions, as required by his official assignment. However, retaliation and threats from the people at United Airlines and within the FAA prevented corrective actions from being taken, and prevented Stich from carrying out his official assignment. These were criminal acts. Stich resisted the blocks, as other inspectors advised him to give up, that the politics were so well embedded in the FAA culture that one inspector could not do anything about it. The crashes and frequent near-crashes were resulting in funerals, thousands of mourners, and continuing. The closeness to the corruption, the resulting crashes and deaths, the funerals, and thousands of mourners, caused Stich to take actions that had never before been taken. He filed papers that permitted him to act similar to an independent prosecutor. There occurred a court-like hearing, with a court reporter, where Stich was able to provide evidence and also to have FAA management appear and be questioned by him. During this period, United Airlines had two additional fatal crashes, both of which were enabled by the safety problems and criminal violations that Stich had reported. (Another crash at another airline was due to an identical safety problem that Stich had reported and FAA management refused to act upon,) These were accompanied by cover-ups within the FAA and also from the political Civil Aeronautics Safety Board. (Later reformed as the National Transportation Safety Board-NTSB.) The hearings required over 4,000 pages of court transcript. During the proceedings, Stich uncovered documents showing criminal conditions that were primary enabling causes of prior crashes, including the world's worst at that time, a united Airlines DC-8 crash into the Brooklyn section of New York City. Filing of legal briefs Upon the end of the proceedings, Stich filed a closing brief that highlighted the many safety violations related to several recent crashes. In that closing brief, he warned that a cover-up would continue the misconduct, the culture, the crashes, and the deaths. Three major corruption-related airline crashes (two at United Airlines and several near crashes) occurred during Stich's attempts to halt the safety misconduct and safety problems. Over a hundred funerals occurred during this period while Stich was under attack to halt his official life-and-death assignment. Outrage by Head of FAA Sky Marshall Program After the cover-up following the FAA hearings, during which Stich acted as an independent prosecutor, the head of the FAA’s Sky Marshal’s program was outraged, and encouraged Stich to send a report to the FAA Administrator, and stated that he would co-sign the report. This was done on August 8, 1966. Cover letter to the FAA Administrator was attached to the three-part report sent to the FAA Administrator.

(Part 3) www.defraudingamerica.com/faa_report_to_administrator_part_three_aug8_1966.pdf. Appearing Before a Federal Grand Jury Appearing before a federal grand jury in Denver, circumventing the block by Department of Justice personnel—unaware of the hopelessness of appearing before a DOJ-controlled jury of unsophisticated members of the public. Federal Lawsuit Against FAA at San Francisco Filed federal lawsuit against the FAA in San Francisco to report the deadly corruption in the FAA—blocked against by DOJ personnel. Federal Lawsuit Against Political NTSB in World's Worse Airline Disaster Filed lawsuit relating to the crash of a PSA airline into San Diego. The lawsuit in federal courts at San Francisco sought a court order forcing the political NTSB board to receive major evidence being withheld in the world's worst airline disaster at that time. That record replaced the prior world's worst airline disaster—United Airline's DC-8 crash into New York City—which was riddled with aviation safety corruption and cover-ups, including by Department of Justice personnel. The NTSB cover-ups were also prominent in the crashes of a United Airlines Boeing 7277 at Salt Lake City and a United Airlines DC-8 at Portland, Oregon—associated with the actions of that FAA inspector. Friend-of-the-Court Brief in DC-10 Crash Filed amicus curie friend-of-the-court brief at Los Angeles in the litigation involving the crash of a DC-10, seeking to report on the corruption behind the DC-10 scandals. Cover-Up Complicity by Department of Justice Personnel Department of Justice personnel covered up for the federal offenses at United Airlines and the FAA. That was the beginning of recording DOJ misconduct for the next 40 years and continuing to this day. Highlights of Next Four Decades Of Escalating Corruption and Great Tragedies Stich was forced to leave government service after the cover-up, where the perpetrators of the corruption received outstanding reports and increases in salaries and promotion—at the expense of crashes, deaths, and all the associated hardships. The corruption and resulting crashes and deaths continued, as could be expected from the cover-ups. Outraged, Stich continued his efforts with some unprecedented efforts and experiences. The next 40 years included such efforts and consequences as the following: Detailed Notifications to Members of Congress 1965 to 2013 and Continuing Reports to member of Congress from the 1960s through this day. Initial responses from such well known members of Congress as Senator Robert Kennedy showed concern, and there were some early responses. Within two years of my notifications to then, the Federal Aviation Agency was terminated and replaced with the Federal Aviation Administration, and put under the newly created Department of Justice. The Civil Aeronautics Board Bureau of Aviation Safety was terminated and replaced with the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). In this way, members of Congress could show they did something. Unfortunately for the public, the same people and the same culture went into the newly crated departments. If the cover-ups by members of Congress had not occurred, many of the great harm to the people and harm to the United States, including many of the terrorist attacks, would not have happened, It is of utmost importance to many members of Congress that the American public remain ignorant of these maters. With the publics obsession with trivia, this danger to members of Congress is remote. Detailed Notifications to Media Personnel and Corporations 1965 to 2013 and continuing Media personnel and media corporations, notified by Stich of the corruption during publicity over various aviation disasters, resulted in cover-ups, making media personnel and corporations enablers of subsequent tragedies. This cover-up has today reached a critical period since 9/11. Circumventing Cover-Ups: Published Books Stich's first of many not-for-profit books was published in 1978: Unfriendly Skies. That book enabled Stich to appear as guest and expert on hundreds of radio and TV shows. He used his twin-engine aircraft to personally appear on many TV shows. (At that time, Stich owned over $10 million in real estate which he acquired after leaving the FAA position, starting with a $500 investment.) The books received excellent book reviews and caused many sympathetic letters to be sent to him.) But no one did anything. Publicity Generated Contacts with Dozens of Former Professionals In Covert Operations and Law Enforcement The radio and TV appearances, and the books, caused dozens of former professionals in covert operations, law enforcement personnel, former drug smugglers—working for CIA personnel, and former Mafia figures, to contact Stich and provide a huge amount of detailed information and documents on corrupt conduct in other areas of government. Circumventing Massive Cover-Ups by Filing Federal Actions Under the Federal Crime Reporting Statute The gravity of the additional information on harm-resulting corruption that Stich was receiving caused him to again exercise the crime reporting statute, that requires anyone knowing of a federal crime to report it to a federal judge. The initial filing was addressed as years earlier when I used that procedure to report the federal crimes in then FAA and NTSB. Department of Justice personnel promptly filed motions to dismiss. Federal judges—most of whom were formerly in the DOJ—rubber stamped the motions and dismissed them. However, the information Stich placed in the federal filings, based upon the newly acquired information, addressed issues with greater criminal activities. He had to be stopped. Tactics To Block Life-and-Death Assignment By Powerful Forces in Control of U.S. Government Starting in 1982 and continuing non-stop until 2005, actions were taken to silence Stich, which required a powerful force in the federal government to control and protect the perpetrators and the massive violations of state and federal laws and constitutional protections. The highlights of these schemes included the following: Sham lawsuit filed by the San Francisco CIA-front law firm of Friedman, Sloan and Ross, and their attorneys, that was barred by and violated dozens of California and federal laws and constitutional protections, and in which California judges acted without personal or subject matter jurisdiction. For the sham lawsuit to continue for six years, under these conditions, required the complicity of over a dozen California judges, and eventually, over a dozen federal judges, and Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court. For so many key people to become complicit in the scheme by the CIA-front law firm, violating dozens of California and federal laws, required a powerful force in the federal government. The evidence indicates that this powerful force was in the U.S. Department of Justice. Federal judges issued multiple illegal and unconstitutional orders barring the corruption-fighting activist from filing any papers in any federal district and appellate court. These orders knowing barred him from reporting the ongoing and additional corrupt conduct that enabled or were associated with continuing harm, or deaths, and catastrophic events. The first of these illegal orders was issued in 1986. When additional criminal conduct was discovered, including October Surprise and CIA drug trafficking, and he and his group attempted to report them, as required by the federal crime reporting statute, Department of Justice personnel and federal judges at Sacramento charged Stich with criminal contempt of court for reporting these matters that previous illegal judicial orders ordered him not to report. To insure his imprisonment, the same Department of Justice personnel and federal judges involved in the cover-up of these federal crimes, denied him the constitutional right to a jury trial, and then sentenced the 68-year old corruption fighter to six months in federal prison—under especially harsh conditions while he was recovering from open heart surgery. While in federal prison, federal judges corruptly seized and liquidated the assets that funded his attempts to halt the corruptly and the deadly consequences. When he filed an objection to the illegal and unconstitutional seizure, federal judges Edward Jellen, Oakland, charged him with criminal contempt of court and ordered him to prison. As he was about to be released from prison, federal judges at San Francisco again charged him with criminal contempt of court and subjected him to house arrest that continued for five years. Federal judges blocked continuation of the last pre-9/11 lawsuit, filed at Sacramento, that had reported the areas of corruption that made possible the easily preventable hijackings of four airliners on September 11, 2001. Shortly after 9/11, federal district and appellate judges in New York City blocked the presentation of corrupt acts that enabled the easily preventable and forewarned hijackings of four airliners. Shortly after 9/11, federal district and appellate judges at Washington, DC, also blocked the presentation of corrupt acts that enabled the immediate deaths of almost 3,000 people on 9/11, followed by tens of thousands of deaths that were ripple effects following the hijackings. Dozens of Federal Judges Directly Complicit All of the above judicial corruption was known and approved by the judges in the Court of Appeals at San Francisco (including Judge Kennedy before his appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court) and by the Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court. The harm to the nation and its people from the corrupt actions of the federal judges greatly exceeded the harm from a criminal act of anyone in prison. One Supreme Court Justice Apologized After receiving a 60-page emergency petition describing these matters, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Byron White responded with an unprecedented personal letter and an unprecedented and revealing apology. http://www.defraudingamerica.com/white_letter_index.html. When understood, the misconduct of the judges allowed preventable catastrophic events to continue that directly resulted in thousands of deaths, not counting the hundreds of thousands whose deaths were ripple effects, such as occurred following the hijackings of easily preventable and forewarned hijackings of four U.S. airliners on September 11, 2001. Decades of Consequences of Attacks Blocking Life-and-Death Assignment The consequences of blocking a government assignment to halt deadly corruption in the aviation environment started with corrupt conduct that enabled a long series of aviation disasters. His perseverance in fighting to halt that area of corruption and resulting tragedies took him into other areas of nation-affecting corruption, with much of the information presented to him over 30 years by a series of former professionals in covert and law enforcement operations, former drug smugglers, and former Mafia personnel. These matters had widespread adverse effects upon the American people, including life-and-death, personal and financial, and catastrophic. A summary sampling of what he discovered is stated at the following links: http://www.defraudingamerica.com/fbi_murderous_culture. http://www.defraudingamerica.com/DOJ_deep_sixing_planned_terrorist_attacks. http://www.defraudingamerica.com/corruption_fighting_whistleblower. Detailed Sequence of Discovered Corruption And Resulting Tragedies First Book to Circumvent Cover-Ups Published in 1978 the first of a series of not-for-profit books to circumvent the total cover-ups, believing there were sufficient number of people that would be so outraged that they would create enough outrage to force corrective actions. (That same corruption-fighter also believed in Santa Claus at an early age!) That first book, in several additions, was called, Unfriendly Skies—an Aviation Watergate. The present version of the not-for-profit book is called, History of Aviation Disasters: 1950 to 9/11.) Start of Radio-TV Appearances Beginning in 1978, started appearing as guest and expert on hundreds of radio and television shows throughout the United States, using his twin-engine airplane to travel from one appearance to another. Start of Dozens of Professional Sources The publicity resulted in the start of a continuing series of former professionals in covert and law enforcement operations, former drug smugglers, and former Mafia personnel, providing him with information and evidence of corruption in other areas of government operations, exposing hardcore corruption of people in control of key government operations. Federal Lawsuits to Halt Corruption and Consequences He then added the additional information on the nation-affecting corruption and filed federal actions under the crime reporting statute to report them to a federal judge. The initial use of the courts to report and attempt to halt the corruption included the following: Lawsuit against FAA. Lawsuit against NTSB. Lawsuit, amicus curiae in DC-10 crash and deaths resulting from FAA corruption Second Book, 1980, Named DOJ and Federal Judges The second edition of Unfriendly Skies, published in 1980, identified the cover-ups by Department of Justice personnel and federal judges, and the subsequent aviation disasters they enabled by their cover-ups of the corruption and protection of the perpetrators. Major attacks upon Stich soon followed, involving Department of Justice personnel and federal judges, initiated by a sham lawsuit against Stich in the California courts, by CIA-FBI-front law firms and their attorneys, indicating control and protection emanating from a powerful central source—the Department of Justice. Judicial Orders Terminating Basic Rights Federal judges repeated their earlier block and refused to allow the information to be received. Concurrently, federal judges issued illegal and unconstitutional orders barring him from ever filing any papers in any federal district or appellate court. Federal judges continued the obstruction of justice repeated earlier in prior attempts to halt the harm-resulting corruption of key people in government. Both groups were protecting the corruption in the system. Powerful People in Government at Risk of Exposure The risk of exposure of powerful people in government, Department of Justice personnel and federal judges, was followed by a scheme that started with sham lawsuits that required a powerful source in the federal government to accomplish involving a hoard of lawyers and law firms that violated blocks of state and federal laws. The scheme required the unified actions of blocks of perpetrators, repeatedly violating blocks of state and federal laws, judges to allow the violations and personal and financial harm to continue, higher federal judges to protect the lawyers, the California judges, and protect the cooperating federal judges. The evidence over 30 years reveals that this powerful force were personnel in the U.S. Department of Justice. If so, this would be one of several largest scandals among industrialized countries. Charging the Life-and-Death Corruption-Fighter with Criminal Contempt of Court In 1988, the same Department of Justice and federal judges who had repeatedly blocked the reporting of corrupt and life-and-death corrupt misconduct charged Stich with criminal contempt of court for filing a federal action, as required under the federal crime reporting statute, to report to a federal court the criminal activities that he and his group of other former professionals in government had discovered. To do such a corrupt act in the face of the many checks and balances in and out of government greatly increased the support for a powerful force in government, that was more powerful than any individual person or group. Denying Constitutional Jury Trial Prosecuted and Sentenced by Criminal Perpetrators To carry out the prison sentence, it was necessary to deny Stich a jury trial. Despite the belief that a prosecutor could cause a jury to induct a ham sandwich, it was improbable that Department of Justice personnel and federal judges could find a jury that would find Stich guilty of a crime for reporting deadly corruption. As with the long history of violating laws and constitutional protections, Department of Justice personnel and federal judges denied Stich the constitutional right to a jury trial. The Department of Justice personnel and federal judges, who had been part of the criminal activities that Stich was exposing, then sentenced Stich to federal prison, at the age of 68, while he was still recovering from open heart surgery. That imprisonment was done with the maximum amount of physical severity, including four weeks in solitary confinement. DOJ and Judicial Seizure of Assets Funding Exposure While in prison, Department of Justice personnel and federal judges seized and liquidated the $10 million of assets that Stich had accumulated after leaving government through real estate investments. These assets were corruptly seized, violating federal law, without justification, and without the constitutional requirement of due process. Charged with Criminal Contempt of Court For Filing Objection to Corrupt Seizure of Life Assets When Stich filed a legal objection to the seizure, Oakland federal judge Edward Jellen, charged him with criminal contempt of court for exercising this federal due process, that is at the core of an honest government. The arrogance and contempt for the laws and Constitution of the United States was again shown, as well as the assurance that any judicial atrocity would be supported at every judicial level, and the judicial perpetrators protected. Recharged with Criminal Contempt of Court As Stich was about to be released from six months in federal prison, San Francisco federal judges Marilyn Patel and Vaughn Walker (the homosexual judge that ruled for gay marriages) had Stich again arrested for having filed papers in other courts seeking to report the corruption in federal courts outside of California, and report the retaliation that was occurring in the federal courts in California. He was then ordered to house arrest that lasted from 1990 to 1995. Ongoing Worsening Consequences During this period, the corruption that Stich and his group had been exposing was about to enable a series of catastrophic events involving terrorist activities that would probably not have succeeded if the corrupt culture had not existed. These included, for instance: Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, and the Department of Justice personnel planting of bogus evidence, covering up for the actual groups responsible, and charging two innocent Libyans. letter list related to DOJ fraudulent prosecution in matter of Pan Am Flight 103. 1993 World Trade Center bombing, despite FBI officials having advance notice of the planned bombing, where the bomb was being fabricated in Jersey City, the names of the al Qaeda personnel, and where they lived. Supreme Court Justices Fully Informed From 1978 onward, Stich had filed multiple papers with the Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court. These filing repeatedly made the Justices fully aware of the corruption undermining the lawful functions of various federal offices, including the Department of Justice and the federal judges—over whom they had supervisory responsibilities. They knew that federal judges were using the federal courts in an unlawful and criminal manner, enabling the continuation of crimes against the United States and the great harm, deaths, and catastrophic consequences. Throughout it all, they covered up. Later cover-ups were required to protect their earlier complicity. letter list to Justices of the U.S. Supreme Courts Unprecedented Lawsuit Against Supreme Court Justices Stich had even filed a federal lawsuit against the Justices of the United States Supreme Court in the 1980s, filing it for the sole basis of showing their corrupt actions. Something like this had never been done before, and constituted a newsworthy story. But media personnel and media corporations totally covered up for the unprecedented event involving the highest court in the United States. If they had reported this newsworthy event, the allegations made in the lawsuit would have alerted the American public to the extremely serious matters undermining the government. Reporting that filing would also have eventually revealed the media cover-ups throughout the entire period covered by these efforts. Unprecedented Personal Letter and Unprecedented Apology By U.S. Supreme Court Justice Byron White The serious nature of the corruption and the often deadly consequences justified the perseverance. In 1991, Stich submitted a 60-page emergency petition to Supreme Court Justice Byron White, revealing these serious matters. Supreme Court practice is for the clerk of the court to either send a rejection of the emergency request or provide a notice of a hearing or for further arguments. In this case, Justice White did two unprecedented acts: He responded with a personal letter, and even more unprecedented—and revealing—he apologized for not being able to help—as a single Justice. In other words, the other Supreme Court Justice were more interested in continuing the cover-ups that were at that time resulting in even worst national catastrophic events made possible by the ongoing corruption, Key Enablers of the 911_Hijackings The enablers of the 3,000-death 9/11 hijackings are many. They include: High level Department of Justice personnel in Washington deep-sixed advance notice of al Qaeda attacks provided by a mole inside an al Qaeda cell and his New York City attorney, insuring the success of easily preventable al Qaeda attacks. The reason for deep-sixing the planned attacks was the scheme to discredit the mole proving the information so as to prevent public discovery of FBI-DOJ murders in the New York City offices, which blocked preventative measures to be taken. The forewarned terrorist attacks upon U.S. targets then occurred, with the loss of almost 4,000 lives. Details in the books, Crimes of the FBI-DOJ, Mafia, and al Qaeda; Terrorism and Deadliest Enabling Scandals of 21st Century; and History of Aviation Disasters: 1950 to 9/11.The attacks enabled by the deep-sixing included: Downing of TWA Flight 800 shortly after departing New York City's JFK airport, as planned and told by al Qaeda's Ramzi Yousef to the mole in the al Qaeda cell a couple of weeks earlier. The bombings of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, despite advance notice to FBI agents by the mole inside the al Qaeda cell. The easily preventable and forewarned hijackings of four airliners on September 11, 2001. The decades of involvement by FBI-DOJ personnel in brutal murders with brutal crime figures in the Boston and New York City offices reflects the culture that was compatible with the other corruption stated here. Federal judges, who repeatedly, since the 1970s, blocked Stich from reporting the corruption that played enabling roles in three decades of major tragedies; who, in unison with the thoroughly corrupt U.S. Department of Justice officials, charged Stich with criminal contempt of court for reporting the corruption-tragedies relationship; who corruptly seized and liquidated Stich's assets that funded his attempts to halt the corruption; and host of other forms of judicial corruption. Members of Congress due to their cover-ups, that started in the 1960s and continues to this date. Letters/faxes sent to member of Congress reveal their complicity from the 1960s to today. If they had responded instead of criminally covering up, much of the harm, the deaths, the catastrophic events, would not have happened. U.S. media corporations, due to their years of cover-ups, starting in the 1960s. If they had reported the corruption and consequences when first notified, life in the United States would be vastly different, and without many of the self-made tragedies: Sampling of communications sent to media personnel and media corporations. U.S. media's 40 years of tragedy-enabling cover-ups. media California judges who played early roles in the scheme to silence Stich. Their role was to enable a scheme to continue that involved six years of repeated legal attacks that violated dozens of state and federal laws and constitutional protections. That scheme was controlled by personnel in the U.S. Department of Justice, working in secret unison with California and federal judges and a hoard of attorneys and law firms, to halt the exposure of massive corruption that continued to be associated with great harm to the American people. The hoard of lawyers and law firms that initiated the sham lawsuits that hindered the exposure and correction of the tragedy-enabling corruption. Calamitous-Enabling Complicity of Total U.S. Leadership Insures Continuous Cover-Up and Continuation The documented corruption, cover-ups, and resulting series of great American tragedies, the extent of the criminality in high government positions, the cover-ups that are criminal acts obstructing justice, and the media cover-up complicity, the criminal misuse of government power against those trying to stop the harm by exposing the corruption, are matters that would topple dozens of people in control of America's government. The truth must remain hidden from the people. Despite—or because of—the Calamitous Consequences-- Total Continuing Cover-Ups Following the easily preventable and forewarned series of calamitous terrorist acts, made possible by the corrupt actions and culture—and the criminal cover-up of advance information to protect themselves from being identified in decades of murders—many of which would not have happened without FBI-DOJ approvals and protection, the tragedy-enable cover-ups continued. Two more lawsuits were filed for the simple goal of reporting the corruption that made the 9/11 hijackings possible: Last chance lawsuit, prior to 9/11, filed in federal courts at Reno, while catastrophic consequences were occurring, with continuing judicial block—a crime that would have calamitous consequences. Federal lawsuit in New York City following the 9/11 attacks seeking to report the corruption that enabled the latest catastrophic events that killed nearly 3,000 people. Concurrent post-9/11 lawsuit filed in the federal courts in Washington. Multiple Legal and Criminal Violations By Chief Judge Mukasey in New York Courts Total judicial cover-ups. In the lawsuit filing at New York City, Chief Judge Michel Mukasey violated federal filing requirements by refusing to file the papers, even thought the papers met filing requirements and paid the filing fee. This was another judicial obstruction of justice with multiple violations of federal criminal statutes, due process and filing regulations. After nearly a year's delay in filing, Stich sent letters to each of the Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court, advising each of the Justices of the latest obstruction of justice by federal judges over whom they had supervisory responsibilities. After those letters were sent, which again made the Justices aware of the calamitous events that they helped make possible, Judge Mukasey filed the lawsuit, a year after it was received. Within hours, Mukasey issued an order dismissing the action, which violated additional federal regulations, including the requirement to issue a proposed order of dismissal and providing an opportunity to object to dismissal. Mukasey's conduct insured the protection of federal judges, Department of Justice personnel, and others whose misconduct all played a role in the prior tragedies—and insured the continuation of these matters. More Legal and Criminal Violations with Supreme Court Justices' Approval Entire court of appeal judges again violated federal laws. Stich's right to a federal court hearing, within hours of filing the papers, Mukasey ordered its dismissal— Violating the legal requirement of notice of hearing. Violating the requirement of a hearing. Violating the right to a hearing if the lawsuit states a federal cause of action. Violating the federal crime reporting statute, Title 18 U.S.C. §4, that requires a federal judge (or any other federal official) to receive information and in violation of federal law preventing dismissal of an action stating a federal cause of action, thereby obstructing justice, a federal crime. The consequences of cover-up, retaliation, in these matters, by people in key government positions, had greater adverse effects than virtually any crime ever charged against any federal prisoner. As happened repeatedly in the past, for protecting the people in control of the system, President George H. Bush promoted Mukasey to U.S. Attorney General, a position from which Mukasey could block any attempts to circumvent the judicial blocks. Court of Appeal Judges Complicity Stich filed a notice of appeal with the Court of appeals, filed an appeal brief, a reply brief, and appeared for oral argument in New York City. As usual with every other court of appeals appearances—including en banc filings with every judge in that circuit—by then numbered into several dozen—they protected each other by approving the judicial misconduct that was a national judicial subversion of the laws and constitution of the United States—done with full recognition of the dire consequences. Appearing with Stich at the oral hearing was his companion and supporter of many years, Glenda. Corrupting the 9/11 Commission It was now necessary to corrupt the 9/11 Commission hearings to prevent this information from becoming known by the public. Stich had kept members of Congress and media personnel repeatedly informed. This was done by having Department of Justice personnel involved in the cover-up, the deep-sixing of advance information of the terrorist attacks, embedded into the 9/11 Commission. The Unrecognized Ripple Effects in Two Deadly Wars and Worse The most direct ripple effects from the corruption—especially the DOJ deep-sixing the planned attacks—were the start of the deadly wars against Afghanistan and Iraq, assisted by the serial lying of U.S. politicians and their shills. The enablers in the U.S. government whose corrupt acts brought about 9/11 then banded together to protect their enabling misconduct. Comparative blame for 9/11 showed the resulting wars attacked the wrong enablers. Background and Credibility of the Person Providing This Information There was no incentive in years of fighting the corruption—starting from his official life-and-death assignment as a federal airline safety inspector during the days of continual airline disasters and near disasters—most of which is unknown by the general public, especially today. Starting in that FAA assignment, the specter of the horrendous suffering that went with being in an airline disaster, the enormous losses felt by the loved ones left behind, all due to the arrogance and corruption of people knowing the consequences of their corrupt acts—motivated Stich to continue. That same relationship existed when it was arrogant Department of Justice personnel, federal judges, and the other complicit people and groups. http://www.defraudingamerica.com/stich_bio. http://www.defraudingamerica.com/stich_index. Joined by dozens of former professionals in covert and law enforcement positions, former drug smugglers in covert CIA operations, and former Mafia insiders. courageous insiders exposing corruption in government positions. The Enormous Harm Suffered from Carrying Out A Life-and-Death Assignment The four decades of blatant, corrupt, and criminal retaliation against the corruption-fighting activist started as he sought to carry out the official assignment to halt the corruption responsible for a long series of airline disasters and deaths. The mechanism of ripple or "butterfly effects" continued his foolish determination to halt the worsening corruption and worsening consequences. Attacked While in Official Life-and-Death Assignment Came under intense attacks as a federal airline safety inspector, during an official assignment tasked with the authority to eliminate the corruption resulting in a continuing series of airline crashes and deaths. The retaliation came from the people responsible for the corruption, and then expanded to include the political head of the FAA. These attacks enabled the corruption to continue, along with the resulting crashes and deaths. The corrupt actions taken against him subverted the government's assignment to halt the corruption, crashes, and deaths. The same corrupt actions caused him to leave government service. Attacked Again Later, As Corruption-Fighting Activist He came under further attacks as he used his assets to fight the continuing corruption resulting in continuing airline disasters. These attacks were disguised through sham lawsuits filed initially by the CIA-front San Francisco law firm of Friedman, Sloan and Ross, and their attorneys. This initial lawsuit was barred by dozens of California and federal laws and constitutional protections, requiring the complicity of a dozens California judges—and eventually more federal judges. The six years of constant attacks in the California courts greatly impeded his efforts to expose and halt the corruption that was associated with resulting harm, deaths, and occasional catastrophic events. Crimes and Resulting Tragedies Beyond the Aviation Field His efforts to expose and halt harm-enabling corruption was greatly expanded as dozens of former professionals in covert and law enforcement operations provided him with evidence of corruption in other government operations. He then sought to report these serious federal offenses to federal judges under the federal crime reporting statute, Title 18 U.S.C. § 4, which requires anyone knowing of a federal crime to report it to a federal judge or other federal official (including Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court). Combination Department of Justice and Judicial Attacks, To Halt Efforts to Expose and Halt Tragedy-Enabling Corruption Upon exercising the federal responsibility to report the ongoing federal crimes, as they were resulting in great harm to the nation and to people, Department of Justice personnel and federal judges acted in unison, charging him with criminal contempt of court. (Both of these groups had repeatedly blocked reports of ongoing corruption of key people that enabled the direct causes of many aviation disasters to occur, that were being reported through the federal crime reporting statute.) The criminal contempt of court charge was based on a prior illegal and unconstitutional order permanently barring the corruption-reporting whistleblower from filing any papers in any federal district or appellate court. That unconstitutional order was intended to block the reports of criminal activities and to block access to federal court to defend against sham lawsuits that was dual efforts to halt his exposure of high-level corruption. Denying a Jury Trial to Insure Success Of the Obstruction of Justice Scheme Denying the whistleblower the constitutional right to a jury trial, thereby being charged and convicted by two groups that had illegally blocked the reporting of criminal activities that had and would continue to result in great harm, many deaths, and occasionally, catastrophic events. Kangaroo Court Proceedings Protected the DOJ-Judicial Scheme Held guilty in a kangaroo court proceeding by federal judges and Department of Justice personnel, both groups criminally blocking the reports of ongoing corruption in government that was resulting in a continuing number of harmful, sometimes catastrophic, events. Six Months in Prison for Attempting to Halt The Ongoing Tragedy-Enabling Corruption Sentenced to six months in federal prison, and being immediately seized and sent from prison to prison, in shackles, being exposed to the public during transfer from prison to prison. At this time, Stich was still recovering from open-heart surgery, and was 67 years old at that time. This constitutional outrage was compounded by being kept in solitary confinement for four weeks. Converted from Multi-Millionaire to State of Poverty While in prison, federal judges and Department of Justice personnel corruptly seized Stich $10 million (1980s valuation) in real estate assets. Involved in these acts were Las Vegas federal judge Robert Jones and Oakland federal judge Edward Jellen, and U.S. Department of Justice trustee, Charles Duck (later sent to federal prison for the worst trustee fraud in the nation's history—his prosecution forced by media publicity). He and his companion German Shepherd became homeless as Department of Justice trustee Charles Duck ordered him from him home—after first stripping him of his assets. Federal Judge Charging Him with Contempt of Court for Filing Legal Objection to Corrupt Seizure of Assets In addition to corruptly seizing the assets, Judge Edward Jellen charged Stich with criminal contempt of court when Stich exercised the legal and constitutional right to appeal the seizure and liquidation of the assets. Repeating Prison Charge as Tragedies from Corruption Continued Upon release from the first prison sentence, San Francisco area federal judges, Marilyn Petal and homosexual Vaughn Walker, charged Stich with another criminal contempt of court for filing papers in another federal court trying to report the federal crimes that he and his group of other former government personnel had discovered. Harm from Recognition of Hopelessness of Relief Compounding the harm was the realization and hopelessness that these attacks: Openly violated every basic liberty and justice "protection" under the laws and Constitution of the United States. That the protections were violated by dozens of people paid to prevent such gross harmful attacks. That Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court were aiding and abetting the violations. That the gross harm upon stich was inflicted as a result of his life-and-death efforts. That members of Congress knew of the attacks and remained quiet, becoming criminally complicit (This congressional complicity started in the 1960s and continues to this day—enabling by their silence many of America's great tragedies affecting the people and the nation.) Sampling of letters/faxes sent to member of Congress, starting in the 1960s. That media personnel and media corporations covered up for these attacks—just as they covered up for the tragedy-enabling corruption starting in the 1960s as they were informed of the hardcore corruption from a government insider—and which continues to this day. Members of the American public; some of whom knew of the attacks; others who are so hopelessly obsessed with trivia that they are incapable of meeting their responsibilities under the form of government in the United States; and those who protest trivia, something similar to charged Murder Incorporated personnel with illegal parking while ignoring the murders. All of the above, except for the American public—will continue the cover-ups, despite the worsening tragedies—due to their role in enabling the earlier disasters. If, in the 1960s, when the fraud-enabled airline disasters were a continuing occurrence, and FAA airline safety inspector Rodney Stich in his life-and-death assignment was notifying members of Congress and media personnel of the corruption and related consequences, if any of them had met their moral and legal responsibilities instead of covering up: The corruption, politics, and incompetence at the local FAA office could have been addressed, and a history of aviation disasters and deaths avoided. The corrupt culture in the Department of Justice addressed, to where the harm directly inflicted upon individual Americans, and the harm resulting or associated with major catastrophic events, prevented. Resulting Harm to People—Including Those Who Knew and Didn't Care A sampling of the more catastrophic harm follows, and then a sampling of the more personal harm—all of which was and is made possible by the above enablers: The worst traumatic tragedies in the nation's history, from documented corruption, starting with a particular corrupt scheme in the U.S. Department of Justice: TWA Flight 800 Deaths Forewarned downing of TWA Flight 800, shortly after taking off from New York's JFK Airport. U.S. Embassies Deaths Forewarned bombing of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. August 7, 1998. Enabled by DOJ deep-sixing advance notice of planned bombings of U.S. embassies. 3,000 Deaths on September 11, 2001 Forewarned hijackings of four U.S. airliners on September 11, 2001.U.S. airliners. 1993 World Trade Center Bombing Deaths Forewarned bombing of World Trade Center in 1993. DOJ Corruption Related to Pan Am Flight 103 Over Lockerbie DOJ personnel corruption involved in the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie. Fraud-Enabled Aviation Disasters Associated with Life-and-Death Assignment Years of aviation disasters and deaths at a politically powerful airline that resulted in giving FAA airline safety inspector Rodney Stich the unprecedented official assignment to halt the widely-known corruption at that airline and the corruption discovered at the overseeing FAA office. FBI-DOJ Funded and Protected Murderers in Boston Area Brutal murders of people in the Boston area by crime boss James "Whitey" Bulger for several decades—with the approval and funding of local FBI and other DOJ personnel, and approved by top DOJ personnel in Washington, including FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover. (See Stich's fights with Hoover while an FAA inspector.) FBI-DOJ Funded and Protected Murderers in New York City Area Similar brutal murders of people in the New York City area by Mafia capo known as the "killing machine," Gregory Scarpa, Sr., aided and abetted by local FBI and DOJ personnel in the U.S. Department of Justice, and in Washington. However, an attempt to prevent the American people from learning of this relationship required a Washington-based scheme to deep-six advanced information of several catastrophic al Qaeda attacks. This scheme enabled those easily prevented and forewarned attacks to occur, which constituted the worse series of catastrophic events to occur in the nation's history—followed by even worse harm due to the serial lying by America's leaders. List of sampling of harm upon individual Americans—like you.

While the corruption-fighting activist suffered greatly, for years, due to all of the above, so did many people in the United States. The particulars are detailed in the early not-for-profit books written by Rodney Stich and his many confidants, such as Unfriendly Skies, Defrauding American, and Drugging America, followed by more books listed below. Many funerals, many grieving loved ones, many innocents sent to prison, or to greatly exaggerated sentences. All of these conditions exist at this time. Attempts to Focus Attention on the Issues and Force Addressing the Deadly Corruption Lawsuit against members of Congress, reporting their cover-ups of crimes against the United States, in which they did not deny the charges, relying on immunity. Lawsuit against U.S. media corporations, reporting their cover-ups of crimes against the United States, in which they did not deny the charges. Lawsuit against the Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court, reporting their cover-ups of crimes against the United States, in which they did not deny the charges, claiming immunity. Federal judges and Supreme Court Justices unlawful blocks of lawsuits after 9/11 that sought to report insider's reports of long-standing criminal activities that made 9/11 and prior terrorist attacks possible, including the deep-sixing of advance information on the planned al Qaeda attacks by Department of Justice officials. The intent was to prevent the American public aware of the decades of FBI-DOJ complicity in murders with the New York City Mafia capo, Gregory Scarpa, Sr. That corrupt cover-up scheme resulted in the worse series of terrorist attacks in the nation's history, followed by two wars, the greater increase in the nation's history in people wanting to kill Americans, and much more. The lawsuits seeking to report these matters that were blocked in clear violation of federal laws, Constitutional protections, and criminal statutes by obstructing justice (with the cover-up complicity of members of Congress and media personnel and media corporations: Lawsuit filed in federal courts in New York City. Post-9/11 lawsuit filed in the federal courts in Washington. Appeals to U.S. Supreme Court. The People and Groups Aiding and Abetting The Great Harm Upon the American People Department of Justice personnel—the coordinators, the same group involved in decades of murders with its FBI division. Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court. Dozens of federal judges in the district and appellate courts Over a dozen California judges. A hoard of attorneys and law firms, from 1982 to 2005, plus those who covered up, as in Pan Am Flight 103. Aiding and Abetting Through Cover-Ups Members of Congress, as shown in a letter list, from 1960s to today. Media personnel and media corporations, and political pundits, from the 1960s to today. Others, as shown by notices. The people hopelessly obsessed with trivia. Grave Significance of the Evidence Of Criminally-Corrupt American Leadership The evidence, when carefully examined and understood, reveal unprecedented ramifications to the covert leadership in the United States government that threatens everyone, and some will be victims. The evidence about a hidden power that subverts all the protections in the laws and Constitution of the United States, in control of major government functions, is strongly indicated by, for instance: The powerful force somewhere in government that can carry out the schemes against a government employee on a corruption-riddled life-and-death assignment, violating gross number of protections "guaranteed" by the laws and Constitution of the United States, that requires the complicity of so many people and groups, and protection of the hundreds of perpetrators. Evidence indicates that the powerful force consists of key people in the U.S. Department of Justice. The great number of people and groups legally and criminally complicit in the above acts. The years of cover-ups by media personnel and media corporations throughout the United States, which is ongoing at this time. Sampling of the notices. The years of cover-ups by many members of Congress, as shown by the 35 years of sampling of notifications. Why U.S. Supreme Court Justice Byron White apologized in an unprecedented letter and unprecedented apology that he was unable, by himself, to help correct the misconduct stated in a 60-page emergency petition. The total silence by members of Congress and the media to details showing a government run amuck, riddled with corruption, responsible for repeated harm, deaths, and catastrophic events Additional Related Links Unprecedented apology by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Byron White for not being able—by himself—to help, after Stich submitted a 60-page emergency brief outlining this convoluted series of deadly corrupt conduct and high-level enablers. Books Addressing Areas of Corruption In Covert and Overt Government Operations: A Mosaic of An American Gulag 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 detailed 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 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. International Consequences from Corrupt Conduct of U.S. Ruling Oligarchy 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.
