Justices Repeatedly Blocked Reports of Corruption
In Government—and Criminal Retaliation Against
Granddaddy of Corruption-Exposing Whistleblowers


Highlights of evidence showing Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court conduct for the past 40 years:


Life and death assignment. During the early periods of aviation, when airline disasters were a common event, in 1963, highly experienced federal airline safety inspector Rodney Stich was given the specific assignment by mid-level FAA management in the Los Angeles offices to halt the corruption in the aviation safety activities at United Airlines—and the corruption within the local FAA offices—that enabled a continuing series of airline disasters to occur. [Details in History of Aviation Disasters: 1950 to 9/11, which is the latest title to the updated series of prior Unfriendly Skies books.] He was asked to transfer to the Denver FAA offices, correct and halt the corrupt aviation safety practices at United Airlines and within the Federal Aviation Agency, that resulted in a series of deadly airline disasters. (The definition, airline crashes, don't properly portray the horror that the victims experience, or the years of personal tragedies experienced by loved ones left behind.)

Immediate retaliation—with deadly consequences. Upon reporting and attempting to halt the corrupt practices responsible for enabling the direct causes of the continuation aviation crashes to occur, immediate retaliation came from United Airlines and within the FAA local management, and eventually, high-level FAA management at the regional level, followed by retaliation from high-level FAA management in Washington, including the FAA administrator himself.

Since 1978, former federal agent Rodney Stich, seeking to circumvent the standard cover-ups in government, sought to report to Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court the criminal activities that he initially discovered as a key federal aviation safety inspector-investigator, but also criminal activities in other areas of government operations that he later learned from the many other government agents and insiders who provided him with detailed information and evidence.

In addition, Stich reported, and sought relief, from the series of unlawful and unconstitutional retaliatory actions taken against him that were parallel efforts to halt his exposure of criminal activities that were inflicting great harm upon major national matters, including national security, and in the aviation environment, resulting in numerous preventable deaths.

Those letters, and their documentary support, charge federal judges with a series of major felonies that include blocking reports by government insiders of crimes against the United States associated with the events of 9/11, felony retaliation against a former government agent seeking to report the crimes, obstruction of justice, all of which played major roles in causing or allowing the conditions to exist that led to the immediate murders of 3,000 people and catastrophic peripheral consequences.

If the Justices had acted as morally and legally required, starting in the late 1970s, many of America's great tragedies would not have happened, and the culture in government would be entirely different.

The Reliability of the Person Providing the Information

Supreme Court Justices Approved Federal Judges Sending A
Citizen to Prison for Reporting High-Level Corruption

Among the letters and appeal briefs (Petitions) received by the Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court were those in which former federal agent Rodney Stich sought relief from the prison sentence based on his exercising the mandatory requirements of the federal crime reporting statute to report major criminal acts that he initially discovered during his official duties, that were at that time resulting in a continuing series of fatal airline disasters and other harm to national security. He was also exercising the responsibilities to report the criminal activities of government personnel that were serious crimes against the United States and its people.

The Justices repeatedly refused to provide any relief despite such facts as:

Several years later, U.S. district court judges Marilyn Petal and Walker (San Francisco), again charged Stich with criminal contempt of court, resulting in his arrest and then house arrest for five years, for filing papers in out-of-state federal courts seeking to report criminal activities and exercising federal defenses against the massive violations of federally protected rights that were parallel efforts to halt his exposure activities. Stich filed legal papers in the U.S. Supreme Court for relief:

The year 1991:

From 1986 to 1995, a succession of criminal contempt of court charges were filed by Department of Justice prosecutors and federal judges against corruption-exposing and corruption-fighting whistleblower Rodney Stich. The corrupt basis for the charges was his reporting of the corruption in government to a federal court, as required to be reported under the federal crime reporting statute. Among the groups exposed by these reports were Department of Justice personnel and federal judges who then turned around and misused government power to retaliate and halt the person exposing the criminal activities in which they were involved. The  first Department of Justice prosecutor charging Stich was U.S. Attorney David Levi in Sacramento, who was promoted to a federal judge in the federal courts at Sacramento after that unlawful action.

The harm inflicted upon Stich included six months in federal prison (including four weeks in solitary confinement) at the age of 67, while recovering from  open heart surgery; the corrupt seizure of his life assets, consisting of $10 million in 1980 real estate value ($20 million in 2007 values), and much more.

Legal remedies exercised by Stichblocked by federal judges and Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court:

Petitions for an emergency stay of prison sentence pending appeal, submitted to U.S. Court of Appeals at San Francisco while Judge Anthony Kennedy was a member—prior to he appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court. He was made aware of the criminal activities and related harm, including the series of catastrophic consequences; the criminal misuse of the U.S. Department of Justice and of federal judges to halt the exposure activities. These were major crimes against the United States that would have major enabling effects upon such subsequent events as the series of catastrophic terrorist successes against the United States. See Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy complicity, starting while he was a Court of Appeals judge in the Ninth Circuit at San Francisco.

Petition to 9th Circuit Court of Appeals at San Francisco, January 25, 1991, to doclare the validity of prior divorce judgments as required by state and federal laws, and the related personal and property rights. In an effort to halt the corruption exposing efforts by a group headed by former federal agent Rodney Stich, a bizarre lawsuit was filed by the CIA-FBI-front San Francisco law firm of Friedman, Sloan, and Ross that immediately seized the assets that funded Stich's exposure activities. The sham lawsuit violated dozens of state and federal laws and constitutional protections. If applied nationwide, almost everyone with a divorce judgment could be remarried.

The Year 1989

The tactics used by Department of Justice officials and federal judges to halt former federal agent Rodney Stich from continuing to publicize the high-level corruptionincluding that which implicated themincluded charging him with contempt of court charges and sentencing him to six months in federal prison, two of which were in solitary confinement.

The first set of criminal contempt of court charges were filed against Stich in 1986 by federal prosecutor David Levi and Judges Milton Schwartz, Raul Ramirez, at Sacramento, California, in 1986. To block Stich from reporting high-level criminal conduct charges to a federal court (under the mandatory reporting requirement of the federal crime reporting statute), federal judges has unlawful issued orders permanently barring the former federal agent from ever filing any papers in any federal district or appellate court. When Stich used that reporting statute to report to a federal judge the criminal activities that he and his coalition had discovered, the first of several criminal contempt of court charges were filed.

The second set of criminal contempt of court charges were filed against Stich by Oakland, California federal judge Edward Jellen when Stich filed an objection to the corrupt seize of his life assets consisting of $10 million in real estate which Stich used to fund his exposure activities.

The third set of criminal contempt of court charges were filed against Stich by San Francisco federal judges Marilyn Patel and Vaughn Walker after Stich again attempting to report criminal activities. The following are a sampling of the legal defenses filed by the corruption-fighting whistleblower:

Appeal brief dated April 1, 1989, of the decision by U.S. Magistrate John Moulds and U.S. District Judge Raul Ramirez, Sacramento. Stich, 67 years old, recovering from recent open-heart surgery, was scheduled to go to prison for six months in retaliation for having filed papers in federal courtunder the authority of the federal crimes reporting statuteseeking to report various forms of criminal activities that he discovered, starting with the airline-crash-related criminal activities that he discovered as a key federal aviation safety agent. 

Decades of Complicity in Corruption-Enabling at Federal Circuit and
 U.S. Supreme Court by Justice Anthony Kennedy

From 1965 to 1988, Anthony Kennedy was a professor in constitutional law at Sacramento, California at the McGeorge School of law, University of the Pacific. In March 1975, President Gerald Ford nominated Kennedy to a judicial position on the U.S. Court of Appeals in the Ninth Circuit at San Francisco. On November 30, 1987, Kennedy was nominated to the Supreme Court, and took his seat at the Supreme Court on February 18, 1988.

It was at this time that federal judges at Sacramento were charging former federal agent Rodney Stich with criminal contempt of court for exercising the statutory requirement, and the right as a citizen, to report high-level corruption to the government.

Stich submitted several petitions to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appealsincluding an emergency petition directly to Kennedyduring this time, shortly before he left San Francisco to take his position on the U.S. Supreme Court. The petitions received by Kennedy raised, among other issues, the following:


To silence the former federal agent, Department of Justice prosecutor in Sacramento, David Levi, and several Sacramento federal judges, Milton Schwartz, John Moulds, and others charged him with criminal contempt of court for having filed papers in federal court seeking to report the corruption in key government offices that he and his coalition of former intelligence, law enforcement, and aviation safety personnel had discovered. The attempt to report and halt the tragedy-related corruption was under the mandatory requirements of the federal crime reporting statute and the right and responsibility of anyone that knows of a federal crime to report it to a federal judge or other federal official. Stich was denied the constitutional right to a jury trial and tried, convicted and sentenced the federal judges and Department of Justice personnel who were themselves among those charged with crimes against the United States. Just prior to the age of 70, and recovering from quadruple open heart surgery, he was sent to federal prison for six months under the harshest and most demeaning of possibility, and confined to solitary confinement for eight weeks. The attorney to which he had paid $30,000 to represent him then sabotaged him, something that occurred several times, and was a standard practice as attorneys seek to maintain a good relationship with Department of Justice lawyers and federal judges.

First Legal Filings Submitted On Aviation
Disaster-Related Corruption: 1970s

Lawsuit against the Federal Aviation Administration and another against the National Transportation Safety Board attempting to report the ongoing corrupt activities related to several specific aviation disasters, which went all the way to the Supreme Court, where it was filed. Despite the gravity of the issues, the Justices refused to hear the case.


Justices' Complicity In
Criminal Contempt of Court Charges

Seeking to halt the former federal agent from reporting the high-level corruption, criminal contempt of court charges were filed against him for his attempts to make such reports to a federal judge (circumventing other cover-ups)., as permitted and required under the federal crime reporting statute. Becoming complicit in that scheme were the Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court.

Because he was abandoned by his lawyers, including those that he paid over $30,000, and by court-appointed lawyers (loyal to those who hired them, the DOJ officials), Stich had to prepare and file his own defense briefs.

Others Who Cooperated in the Deadly Cover-Ups

Just in the aviation area, many thousands of people died in airline disasters caused by known safety problems and safety violations since 1950. The details are in the book, History of Aviation Disasters: 1950 to 9/11. These safety matters were prevented from being known by the public through the actions of over 50 lawyers and law firms, several dozen California judges, and dozens of federal judges.

Lawsuit Filed Against
Justices of U.S. Supreme Court

Although bizarre sounding, the facts stated in the lawsuit were accurate, and justified naming the Justices as defendants. If the cover-ups and other wrongdoings by Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court were perpetrated by non-government people, or corporations, they would be charged with criminal acts. Many Americans were sent to prison for committing just one of the many documented acts of obstruction of justice, aiding and abetting, and being accomplices in criminal acts.

Books Revealing 50 Years of Covert and Overt Misconduct:
Mosaic of Life and Values in the United States—
With Worldwide Consequences

Over a dozen highly detailed and documented books revealing a nation's leaders as riddled with corruption with a history of resulting tragedies. These are heavily details books written by granddaddy of corruption-exposing whistleblower Rodney Stich with input from an unprecedented number of key personnel involved in covert and overt activities. They provide the material for a peaceful "Arab Spring" outrage among courageous Americans. (These books are available in print and digital format at www.amazon.com; www.google.com; and other web sites. At each site, put "Rodney Stich" into the search box for a list of these books.







All of the books are available at amazon.com, in print and on digital formats, and at many other Internet sites. They bring together the various pieces of the puzzle to better understand the overall picture, and why the same conditions continue year after year.

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 Another Oppressive Government Oligarchy

A poem written by Martin Niemoller, relating to how Germans tolerate Adolf Hitler is especially suitable to most Americans today:


    First they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Jew.
    Then they came for the Communists, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Communist.
    Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out, because I was not a trade unionist.
    Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak out for me.


                  Pastor Martin Niemöller


Pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) first supported the rise of Adolf Hitler, and then upon learning the truth, and objecting, he was imprisoned. He wrote a poem about the state of denial of Germans about what Hitler was doing. Probably no better example could be shown than what has been done to the American people, in their name, while they ignored the outrages.


The first step is to become informed. And with the vast cover-ups, disinformation, and blatant lying by U.S. politicians, media personnel, and political pundits, this requires a little effort. In searching for information, don't be misled by wild conspiracy theories, and go where facts can be found, including courageous (and foolish) insiders who speak out in defense of the country.


Sadly, fewer people read such books (preferring trivia reading), rarely read newspapers (which is one small step to becoming informed). Therefore, the future is bleak, made possible by the corruption detailed here and in the books, the cover-ups, and the public's indifference to their responsibilities.

International Consequences from Consequences
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.
