Successful real estate entrepreneur, starting with $500 investment, pyramiding it to $10 million when it was corruptly seized in the 1980s, and which then increased to about $20 million in 2007. Creditability of the corruption charges made by Stich and his group of confidants. Background for discovering serious corruption among America's leaders and grave resulting consequences. Unusual background that made Stich privy to many of the darkest secrets involving high-level corruption affecting national and international affairs. This background started with the assignment to correct the pattern of corrupt acts at a major airline that were resulting in a series of airline crashes, including one into New York City that was the world's worst at that time, followed by a series of others. Later, he became the confidant of dozens of key personnel in various government operations, including the CIA, FBI, DEA, Customs, and others. Responsibilities as a Naval Aviator, instructor in Catalina patrol planes, youngest Patrol Plane Commander in Privateers in World War II. Airline captain for many years, rated in virtually every aircraft flown by U.S. airlines from the DC-3, up to and including the Boeing Stratocruiser, DC-8 and Convair 880. Involved in war operations, Middle East operations as airline captain flying Muslim pilgrims to Mecca and Medina, present during 1953 CIA overthrow of the democratically-elected leader of Iran, and other Middle East operations. Selected in 1963 by mid-level aviation safety qualified FAA management to correct the aviation safety misconduct at the nation's largest airline, experienced a series of major airline disasters, and the parallel misconduct in a key FAA office at Denver. Resorted to becoming a corruption-exposing whistleblower to a corruption-fighting whistleblower. Initial favorable congressional responses, including one by Senator Robert Kennedy. Unprecedented Support By Supreme Court Justice Byron White Personal letter to Stich by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Byron White stating, "Dear Mr. Stich. As a single justice I can be of no help to you. I am returning your petition. Sincerely yours, Byran White." That letter was sent to Stich by the Supreme Court Justice after submitting a 60-page Emergency Petition to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Byron White providing specific factual information about areas of corruption in the three branches of the federal government and the resulting harm and catastrophic consequences. The charges revealed criminal corruption unprecedented in any modern industrial country. Adding more intrigue, that response from Justice White was sent while a lawsuit against Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court (Oct 20, 1989) was pending, which was filed by Captain Stich. There had never been such a lawsuit against the Supreme Court Justice. That lawsuit was filed for the primary purpose of making a record of the serious crimes against the United States and the resulting series of catastrophic consequences, in which the Supreme Court Justices were repeated enablers. One of many related matters was the media secrecy given to that filing and the serious charges in that lawsuit. If the media had made reference to the gravity of the charges and the unprecedented lawsuit against the Supreme Court Justices, the public would have learned about matters affecting the lawlessness in the three branches of the federal government and the series of deadly consequences. Initial Support by Judges, Lawyers, and Others Admissions by Federal District and Appellate Judges That Charges stated in Stich's lawsuit against FAA were Serious, Admissions by a federal district court judge at San Francisco and an appellate judge during oral hearings at San Francisco, admitting the seriousness of the charges made by Stich "Mr. Stich, these are serious charges, but they are for Congress to investigate." Stich responded: "Congress refuses to investigate. But I am not asking you to investigate. I'm here to report the federal crimes to a federal judge as specifically required by Title 18 U.S.C. § 4. In that way I make a record, and when a federal judge performs his or her duty and receives it, that judicial record would required Department of Justice personnel to investigate." Admission by federal district judge Milton Schwartz at Sacramento, during the first hearing on a federal lawsuit reporting more advance corruption that the charges were serious. Subsequent hearings, apparently after briefing by Department of Justice personnel, and possibly by prior federal judges that had blocked the reporting of corruption in the FAA, his concern had a total reversal. Admissions by Famous Aviation Litigation Lawyers That Charges Were Serious, With Serious Ramifications Letter by Lee Kreindler, the head of a top aviation litigation firm, responded to Stich's request for help to expose and halt the corruption within the government's agency responsible for aviation safety: Since we do share ... a common interest in aviation safety and in view of your qualifications in this area, I would like to extend an invitation to you to visit our offices and talk further with us in this area should you ever have occasion to be in New York. Stuart M. Speiser wrote: I certainly appreciate the gravity of the situation described in your letter. In a subsequent letter, Speiser wrote: We found from looking over the material that you sent to us that the matter is so serious and complicated it would be physically impossible for us to do justice to your positions. Another attorney, in Denver, wrote: I wish to warn you once again that you are biting off an awful big piece when you take on United Airlines and the people entrenched in the FAA. As you point out, this thing is getting bigger and bigger all the time ... There are many ramifications that might arise. [That attorney was referring to the evidence that I had that certain people at United Airlines had engaged in criminal acts and that these actions played major roles in several major aviation disasters, including the world's worst at that time. His reference to the matter getting bigger all the time and that many ramifications would arise was true. For instance, major aviation disasters, enabled by the corruption, became worse; and as Stich's exposure actions increased, a powerful source in the federal government (Department of Justice) put into play multiple parallel schemes to silence and harm former federal agent and whistleblower Rodney Stich.] Assistant U.S. Attorney George Stoll in San Francisco calling by phone and stating that he was asking Washington to support Stich's lawsuit against the National Transportation Safety Board. (Information in the book, History of Aviation Disasters: 1950 to 9/11.) Famous veteran journalist for the Honolulu Advertiser and Honolulu Star-Bulletin, Eddie Sherman, stated in two emails to Rodney Stich: January 5, 2013: "I found your websites describing your fights against corruption and cover-ups. Your courage is awesome, and your spirit is inspirational!" February 13, 2013: "You sir, are an American hero! Public corruptions ought to be exposed and dealt with." Letter agreeing with statements made in Stich's book, Unfriendly Skies, from famous aviation figure. Supporting letters sent to Rodney Stich by Anthony W. LeVier, shortly after the first edition of Unfriendly Skies was published in 1978. LeVier was a famous member of Lockheed Corporation "Skunk Works," and was a famous airplane racer. Considerable Evidence Relating to Series of Corrupt Acts by DOJ Personnel Documentation about corruption by employees of the U.S. Department of Justice in the investigation and prosecution involving the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie. See book, Lockerbie to 9/11: Massive Fraud and Consequences. Boston criminal trials revealing the FBI agents in the Boston office were involved in murders with organized crime figures of American citizens. See book Crimes of the FBI-DOJ, Mafia, and al Qaeda. Evidence showing that key FBI supervisor in the New York City offices involved in murders with New York City Mafia capo known as "the killing machine." Evidence that high-level Department of Justice personnel withheld information obtained from key al Qaeda bombing unit of planned terrorist attacks so as to protect an FBI supervisor from being charged with murders. See book, Crimes of the FBI-DOJ, Mafia, and al Qaeda. Evidence that FBI-Department of Justice personnel repeatedly blocked a federal aviation safety agent from reporting corrupt and criminal activities associated with a series of aviation disasters, and then when that government agent became a whistleblower seeking to halt the corruption-enabled consequences, FBI-DOJ personnel charged him with criminal contempt of court and sentenced him to six months in federal prison for attempting to report these crimes against the United Sates that he and his coalition of other government agents had discovered initially during their official government duties; became involved in corruptly seizing the $10 million in assets that funded his exposure activities, and from the evidence, was the powerful source in government orchestrating the 20 years of continual multiple corrupt schemes to silence him. See book, History of Aviation Disasters: 1950 to 9/11.

Charges Confirmed by Head of FAA Sky Marshal Program Report to FAA administrator detailing the specific acts of corruption relating to several aviation disasters, that was cosigned by the original director of the Sky Marshal program. The report in three sections: Part One; Part Two; Part Three. Details in a cover letter to the FAA administrator that accompanied the report signed by Stich and the head of the Sky Marshall program. (PDF format) (MS Word) Evidence Supported by Many Crashes and Many Deaths The occurrence of three major aviation disasters during the several months that Stich acted similar to an independent prosecutor, each of them due to the exact same problems that Stich had repeatedly reported and for which he suffered repeated retaliation by FAA management. Those three crashes and the many deaths were further evidence that the charges made by Stich were true—and which were also reported by other FAA inspectors. Unusual Background, Experience and Credential Extensive background and credentials of former FAA airline safety inspector Rodney Stich. Congress Members' Admission of the Gravity of the Charges Admissions by several members of Congress that Stich's charges of gross misconduct in the FAA were serious. Initial Favorable Congressional Responses, Acknowledging Gravity of Disclosures Numerous initial responses from members of Congress, and then silence when the magnitude of the corruption, consequences, and powerful people in government were recognized, which exists to this day. Once they recognized the deaths resulting from the corruption and the widespread complicity throughout the federal government, silence followed. Never did anyone dispute Stich's charges. Sampling of Great Tragedies Resulting From the Corruption and Cover-Ups As a result of the widespread corruption in overt and covert government operations, the systemic cover-ups that treat high-level corruption as the "third-rail," and the retaliation against whistleblowers, great American tragedies have repeatedly occurred, and will continue to occur. Harm suffered at the individual level by the American public in non-violent areas. Harm to people of other countries. Harm to the few people in the United States fighting the high-level corruption in a meaningful manner. Harm in general. Harm inflicted on former federal agent and whistleblower during multiple schemes to silence him. Series of attacks on U.S. interests by people in other nations who also suffered from the conduct of U.S. politicians. Instead of remaining mute, they reacted: Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie. World Trade Center bombing. Downing of TWA Flight 800 shortly after takeoff from New York. Bombings of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. August 7, 1998. Simultaneous hijackings of four airliners on September 11, 2001. Serial lying by U.S. politicians to use as a pretense to invade Iraq and Afghanistan, killing tens of thousands of innocent people. U.S. politicians shifting enabling blame from their own corrupt actions that encouraged and enabled four groups of terrorists to simultaneously hijack four airliners, and shift the blame to the people of Iraq and Afghanistan—with the help of a dumbed-down American public that is mostly too lazy to learn the truth. Refusal to Even Respond, Thereby Avoiding Making A Record That They Knew of The Charges and Did Nothing In the early years, members of Congress responded to the letters sent by former federal agent Rodney Stich. The response took the following sequence: Response, with acknowledgement that the charges were serious, and then either stating the matters were not in their areas of responsibilities, dropped the matter; or, they said the problems surely no longer existed. Then, as the corruption became worse, and the consequence worse, and the evidence became overwhelming, none of the recipients would even respond, apparently wishing to avoid making a record that they had been made aware of these matters and had done nothing about them. It was like they avoided the matters addressed in the letters like the "third-rail." Letter list to members of Congress, showing their cover-up complicity and enablers. Another list of letters showing further complicity. Consequences of Corruption on Individual Americans The corruption was also inflicting great harm upon individual Americans, being treated as a feeding trough. For instance: People being falsely charges with crimes, planted evidence, perjured testimony, false forensic evidence, by federal, state and local prosecutors. Series of financial frauds appearing every few years, with the latest housing and financial implosions surfacing in 2008. Seizure of assets from innocent people. And many other forms, samples of which are listed in harm to individual Americans. Corruption of the type described at this site does not occur in a vacuum. High-level corruption in one area is simply one tentacle of a widespread culture of corruption. And the consequences of that corruption−and the endemic cover-ups−have consequences in other areas. The culture of corruption affects the people and the nation in many other ways, That includes the latest series of financial frauds that has occurred in the housing and financial sectors. Also, the effect of the endemic corruption and endemic cover-ups−major parts of the culture in the United States−that enablers successful terrorist attacks upon U.S. interests. The Corrupt Acts and Cover-Ups By Government Personnel are Crimes In criminal law, people are accomplices, and guilty, if they know of a criminal act and fail to report it to proper authorities and also to take efforts within their capability to halt their continuation. And there are endless numbers of accomplices that are complicit in these crimes and enablers of the consequences.

Letter list reporting corruption to members of Congress. Consequences for the People of the United States And Other Countries—If This Culture Continues In a 1966 FAA closing brief filed by FAA airline safety inspector Rodney Stich, after he was given a life-and-death assignment, he wrote that a cover-up of the corruption and deaths would continue if a cover-up occurred. The cover-up and many other aviation disasters and deaths followed. The families of the loved ones unaware of the corruption in government offices responsible for their grieving. He repeated this warning to members of Congress as other tragedies from corruption were being reported. With the availability of suitcase nuclear devices, surface-to-air missiles capable of shooting down U.S. aircraft throughout the world, and the unlimited means of inflicting harm by the erupting masses of people outraged by the conduct ordered by U.S. politicians, the future is grim for the American people—and self-enabled. What else could be expected: starting with the funding, arming, and approval of Israel's brutal occupation of Palestine; the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan, with the deadly consequences; torture practices; drone murders of anyone reacting to U.S. attacks, and much more. 9/11 would not have occurred, nor many of the other catastrophic events, if the most elementary levels of integrity existed. The people of no other nation would have remained passive it key people in that government had done even a fraction of what is endemic in all three branches of the federal government. It is improbable, based on prior reaction of the American public, that the public will not react.
