Introduction to This Documentary On The
Dark Side of U.S. Supreme Court Justices' Conduct

This documentary provides specific information on misconduct by the Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court, that if done by someone not in government, would have been addressed as criminal acts and resulted in long prison sentences. The misconduct played enabling roles in decades of enabled tragedies. Among the matters enabled by the conduct of the Supreme Court Justices were a series of aviation disasters, a series of terrorist successes, and harm to individual Americans. The records of the misconduct cover the period from the 1970s past the events of September 11, 2001. The documentary reveals conduct unprecedented in any modern nation.

The information and judicial records have been accumulated and presented by corruption fighter,  Captain Rodney Stich, who has decades of credibility, including support by the highly respected U.S. Supreme Court Justice Byron White.

Presented first are highlights of the issues, and then, for those with a more serious interest, further details.


Start of Discovering and Documenting Corrupt Conduct
Of Government Personnel and Series of Aviation Disasters

Starting in the 1960s and continuing for many years, aviation disasters were a common events, sometimes occurring every few months. One politically powerful airline was experiencing a world-record number of airline disasters. One of these disasters was a world-record at that time: a United Airlines DC-8 crashed into the Brooklyn section of New York City (and 40 years later, another world-record aviation disaster occurred in New York City—September 11, 2001). Both were preceded by enabling misconduct.

A safety segment of the Federal Aviation Agency gave FAA airline safety inspector, Rodney Stich, the unprecedented official life-and-death-assignment to halt the safety problems and corruption  at that airline—that was aided and abetted by the most powerful political interests of the FAA, known at that time to knowledgeable insiders as the "tombstone agency."

Upon discovering, reporting, and attempting to correct the serious problems, he came under heavy attack from personnel at that airline and far worse from within the FAA, originating from the FAA Administer. Three additional aviation disasters occurred while he was under attack, every one due to the same safety problems that he had reported and tried to correct. There was then usual cover-up  by  the FAA and NTSB, and continuing retaliation forced the safety inspector to leave government service. The corruption and the resulting aviation disasters continued.

Department of Justice Personnel and Federal Judges
Repeatedly Blocked Reports of Serious and Often,
Deadly Corruption in Government Positions

As the corruption and resulting aviation disasters continued, former FAA airline safety inspector became a corruption-fighter. That involved publishing not-for-profit books, appearing as guest and expert on hundreds of radio and TV shows, starting in 1978. Seeking to circumvent the cover-ups in government, the corruption fighter, Captain Rodney Stich, filed two federal actions to report the enabling corruption. Those reports were mandatory under the federal crime reporting statute, Title 18 U.S.C. § 4. The first federal action was to report the corruption in the FAA. The second lawsuit was against the NTSB, arising out of the cover-up by the political NTSB board members in the PSA airline crash into San Diego, which was then the world's worst aviation disaster.

Despite their requirement to support these reports, Department of Justice personnel filed motions blocking the reports, and federal judges blocked the submission of every attempt made to report and halt the corruption.

Unprecedented Grouping of Personnel In
Covert and Law Enforcement Operations

Over the years, as the corruption-fighter was joined by other former government agents and insiders, the discoveries expanded into CIA activities that were criminal in nature. Further discoveries were made, including, for instance, criminal activities by personnel in the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), U.S. Department of Justice, including their complicity with major crime figures in the brutal murders of American citizens. This last area of misconduct played an enabling role in a series of al Qaeda attacks, including those on September 11, 2001. These activities were enabling for many years other aviation disasters, were inflicting great harm upon individual Americans, and eventually played enabling roles in decades of terrorist successes.

Federal Judges Repeatedly Blocked Every Attempt To
Report Tragedy-Enabling Corruption

Federal judges blocked every single attempt, from the 1970s to 2005, to report the serious criminal activities in major government positions  that were resulting in great harm to individual Americans, enabling roles in years of aviation disasters, and corruption-enabled terrorist successes.  

Years of Attacks on Corruption-Fighter in Schemes
Involving DOJ Personnel and Federal Judges
And Closely Related Series of Great National Tragedies

As the corruption-fighter was developing national attention via not-for-profit books, hundreds of radio and TV appearances, exposing the corruption and the closely resulting aviation disasters in the 1970s and early 1980s, funded by his real estate investments, a scheme was initiated using a sham lawsuit filed by a CIA-FBI-Front law firm in San Francisco. That lawsuit was barred by a prior  judgment 18 years earlier, which was then entered as a final judgment in the states of Colorado, Oklahoma, Texas, Nevada, and California.

Over a dozen state and federal statutes, controlling decisional laws, and landmark U.S. Supreme Court decisions, barred the filing of that sham lawsuit. In addition, several California statutes denied California judges personal and subject matter jurisdiction  in that matter. Over  a period of several years, it became obvious that the sham lawsuit was being orchestrated by personnel in the U.S. Department of Justice with the cooperation of federal judges. Covering a period of approximately 13 years, the scheme inflicted great and irreparable personal and financial harm upon the corruption fighter, criminally misusing government power and violations rights unprecedented in any modern industrial nation.

Upon the release of Captain Stich's second revised Unfriendly Skies book, reporting the obstruction-of-justice conduct, along with his hundreds of radio and TV appearances, powerful people in government were at risk.

Scheme Commenced in 1982 by DOJ Personnel and Federal Judges
To Silence the Corruption-Fighter

In 1982, a bizarre scheme started against thecorruption fighter that required the complicity of DOJ personnel, over a  hundred federal judges, and protection by the Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court, who had supervising responsibilities over federal judges. That scheme started with a sham lawsuit filed in the California courts at Fairfield, that violated and was barred by several dozen state and federal statutes and controlling decisional laws in landmark U.S. Supreme Court decisions. These illegal acts caused the loss of his home; loss of control of his $10 million in real estate assets; a 7-day jail sentence; enormous personal stress; and labeled the exercise of specific legal defenses as frivolous acts, and imposing thousands of dollars in fines. He was ordered to pay thousands of dollars for having exercised the legal and his constitutional rights to defend against the gross violations.

Multiple Federal Causes of Actions:
Repeated Denial of Federal Defenses

The six years of repeated violations by California judges were federal causes of actions under the Civil Rights Act, Declaratory Judgment Act, and others. Every exercise of federal defenses were blocked by federal district and appellate judges, and the exercise of those defenses—while suffering great personal and financial harm—were called frivolous acts—repeating the tactics used by California judges. Federal judges also engaged openly in approving the violations that they were paid to prevent, openly violating federal laws—also, with no fear that any higher government entity would intervene, and knowing they had immunity from their serious misconduct.

Federal Judges' Orders Terminate all Legal Protections—
While Simultaneously Inflicting Great Harm
Through Massive Civil Rights Violations

Providing themselves extra protection, federal judges repeatedly issued unlawful and unconstitutional orders terminating the corruption-fighter's access to any federal district and appellate court. These orders were rendered by district and appellate judges in the Ninth Circuit at San Francisco and in the District of Columbia.

Criminal Contempt of Court and Prison Sentence

In the late 1980s, as the corruption-fighter learned of additional areas of corruption (CIA criminal activities involved drug smuggling and criminal activities involving the Iran-Contra affair and October Surprise) from his increasing number of confidants that constituted great threats to the people and national security, he filed a federal action to report criminal activities that his sources revealed to him, and combined that crime-reporting issue with another attempt to halt the continuing harm in the California courts.

Acting in the same culture as before, the same Department of Justice personnel and federal judges that had criminally blocked the reporting of criminal conduct. then charged him with criminal contempt of court. At that time, the  corruption was enabling the start of a series of terrorist successes.

To succeed  in that scheme, federal judges denied the corruption-fighter the constitutional right to a jury trial. He was charged, tried, and sentenced by the same Department of Justice personnel and federal judges that were guilty of aiding and abetting  the criminal conduct, that continued to result in even worse catastrophic events. As with the prior judicial misconduct starting in  the 1970s, the corruption-fighter made these matters known to Supreme Court Justices through legal filings and letters.

The corruption fighter, at the age of 68, recovering from open heart surgery, was seized and transported from prison to prison for six months, in chains, carried out in the most harmful manner possible, including four weeks in solitary confinement.

In Desperation, Seeking Relief from Bankruptcy Court Judge

Prior to his incarceration, with every federal district and appellate judge protecting and committing the violations, the corruption-fighter filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy to seek a court order halting the massive violations by the California judges that were resulting in the loss of his home and other assets. It was there that he discovered still another area of corruption: the bankruptcy courts. That experience involved the murder of a lawyer preparing to provide evidence to FBI agents in the San Francisco offices.

Seizing and Liquidating Life Assets, Violating the Most Basic
Requirement for a Hearing and Legal Cause

Instead of providing the requested relief as the judge initially stated he would do, federal judges seized and liquidated the corruption-fighter's life assets. Again, and feeling confidant that they would not suffer the consequences, the life assets were seized and liquidated without the constitutional right to a hearing and without legal cause. This seizure was enabled by the two attorneys that the corruption-fighter had hired to prevent the taking of those assets.

 When the corruption-fighter exercised his constitutional right to file an objection, federal judges Edward Jellen scharged him with criminal contempt of court.

Years of Corruption-Enabled Catastrophic Events During the Above Subversive Activities
By Those Entrusted to Prevent These Unprecedented Outrages

In 1999, the corruption fighter, with an unprecedented number of government insiders, became aware of corrupt conduct that enabled the start of several terrorist successes. Lacking funds, and already sentenced to prison for reporting corruption in powerful government positions, he again sought to halt the worsening consequences by filing  in the federal courts at Reno a report under the corruption reporting statute, Title 18 USC §4.

Before that legal filing was dismissed, the latest al Qaeda success occurred on September 11, 2001. Department of Justice personnel played the most direct and criminal enabling action in that great tragedy. It was now necessary to continue the cover-ups to protect the enablers—despite the consequences of further cover-ups. Despite filing a declaration showing the relationship between the corruption stated in that lawsuit and the 9/11 events, the judge dismissed the action. That dismissal was upheld, as in every other case, by every appellate judge in the Ninth Circuit at San Francisco.

Continued Protection of Corruption Perpetrators
After 3,000 Corruption-Enabled Deaths

Following the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the corruption fighter submitted a post-9/11 lawsuit in the District of Columbia: a federal crime reporting action to report the corruption that enabled the success of those airline hijackers. Federal district and appellate judges blocked that action.

The corruption-fighter then submitted for filing the post-9/11 lawsuit in New York City to report and halt the ongoing corruption. Again, the lawsuit was blocked for a year, until the corruption-fighter sent notices to every Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court of the latest obstruction of justice by federal judges over whom they had supervisory responsibilities.

The lawsuit was then filed and within hours unlawfully dismissed—obviously with the knowledge and approval of the Supreme Court Justices.

The Obstruction-of-Justice-by Federal Judges Led To
The Deadly Invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq

The continued obstruction of justice and other crimes following post-9/11 enabled the enablers described here to be protected by the Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court—including  themselves, and for the massive harm to be suffered by the people of the United States, they enabled the frauds to continue to the invasions of two nations that had no enabling role in the series of al Qaeda attacks, including those on September 11, 2001. Ironically, the judicial cover-ups and prison sentence for attempt to report and  halt the corruption had an ironic twist in New York City.

The 9/11 world-record aviation disasters occurring in New York City was enabled by the corruption that the corruption-fighter repeatedly reported—and for which he was sent to prison. Forty years earlier, it was a world record aviation disaster occurring in New York City that caused the FAA to give federal airline safety inspector Rodney Stich the unprecedented and official life-and-death-assignment to halt the corruption that enabled that disaster and several others to occur. It was his discoveries and reports that revealed the enabled corruption in those two sets of New York City world record air disasters.

Monumental corruption-enabled tragedies and unprecedented complicity of high government personnel, unknown in any modern industrial nation. Complicit in these maters were the Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court.

The following provides further details for those very few with an interest.

Start of Documenting the Corruption While
On Life-and-Death Assignment

During the early periods of aviation, when aviation disasters were a common event, highly experienced federal airline safety inspector Rodney Stich was given the unprecedented official life-and-death 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. Their conduct enabled a continuing series of airline disasters to occur.

One of those disasters occurred in New York City on December 16, 1960; it was the world's worst airline disaster at that time.



First Fight with Life-and-Death Consequences

It was from there that he was driven to engage in an unprecedented series of actions that eventually exposed grave misconduct that was resulting in  great harm, deaths, and corruption-fighterworse catastrophic events, and revealed conditions in government offiees that had never been seen in any modern nation.

That bizarre and world aviation scandal, and how it exploded far beyond the aviation arena, is described at

Federal Court Filing Reporting Federal Crimes
Relating to Series of Aviation Disasters

The corruption and aviation disasters continued at United Airlines, and at other airlines. due to FAA failure to address other safety problems. These tragedies were the consequences of corruption, politics, revolving door syndrome, and incompetence, in the "tombstone agency." In 1975, Stich filed a lawsuit against the Federal Aviation Administration, seeking to report federal crimes, under the authority of the federal crime reporting statute, Title 18 U.S.C. § 4. That statute makes mandatory the requirement of anyone who knows of a federal crime to report it to a federal judge or other federal official, and imposes a mandatory duty on a federal judge or other federal official  to receive the information.

DOJ Personnel Covering Up for Ongoing Deadly Corruption:
Excuse: Lack of Standing to Report Crimes of Federal Personnel!

Rather than perform a mandatory duty to assist in reporting the deadly offenses, employees of the U.S. Department of Justice filed papers claiming that Stich had no standing to report the federal crimes. Anyone has standing to report a federal crime, and failure to make such report, as required by the federal crime reporting statute, Title 18 U.S.C. § 4, is a criminal offence (for which many people have been prosecuted and sent to prison).

Federal prosecutors, for instance, routinely charge individual Americans with obstruction of justice for failing to report a federal crime. In the book, America's corrupt War on Drugs, the case is cited of a black mother who was sentenced to five years in prison  for failure to report what she overheard on a conversation relating to drugs.

Federal Judge's Complicity in Continuing
The Deadly Status Quo

U.S. District Judge Robert Schnacke went along with the Department of Justice's obstruction of justice tactic, and dismissed the action, in clear violation of due process and the federal crime reporting statute. (Department of Justice had previously covered up for serious problems in the FAA related to several prior aviation disasters, and this culture continued into the next century, as documented by Stich.)

Stich filed a notice of appeal and submitted written briefs. During oral arguments before the U.S. Court of Appeals at San Francisco, the three appellate judges acknowledged the seriousness of the charges and then stated it was a matter for Congress. Stich responded that he had brought these matters to members of Congress and failed to have corrective action taken. (Congress did respond. Two years after Stich provided members of Congress with evidence, in 1967, Congress terminated the Federal Aviation Agency and replaced it with the Federal Aviation Administration. But the same personnel and the same culture existed, under a different name.)

First Recorded Complicity of The
U.S. Supreme Court Justices

Stich then filed a petition for writ of certiorari to the U.S. Supreme Court on April 30, 1977. That petition put the Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court on notice:

The Supreme Court Justices issued a decision refusing to hear the action, thereby approving the misconduct that would enable the corruption to worsen, and the resulting consequences to also continue. Once that happened, the Supreme Court Justices had to continue the cover-ups to protect themselves from the catastrophic consequences of their prior acts.

World's Worst Aviation Disaster, 1978

In 1978, a PSA airline flight crashed into the city of San Diego. It became the world's worst airline disaster at that time—replacing the record held by the United Airlines crash into New York City on December 16, 1960. Captain Rodney Stich, in the process of writing a not-for-profit book titled, Unfriendly Skies, discovered misconduct on the part of the cockpit crew that contributed to the disaster. That information was obtained from a woman who was a passenger on that aircraft from its early morning departure at Sacramento, but who left the aircraft at Los Angles before it departed for San Diego. (Details in the book, History of Aviation Disasters: 1950 to 9/11.)

After obtaining  the information from the woman, Stich filed a petition with the NTSB to present material evidence that played the major enabling role leading to the disaster. The political NTSB board refused to receive the material evidence, violating their duty to receive it.

The NTSB political board members had a major self-interest in preventing Stich's role and information to become known. In the past, when Stich was a FAA airline safety inspector, he reported to the NTSB (and its predecessor, the Civil Aeronautics Board), the serious problems in the FAA, and they covered up. That  enabled the deadly crashes to continue, and the need to withhold the enabling causes from the official accident report—which also included their enabling role from the prior cover-ups. A textbook example of this relationship was the NTSB' enabling role and cover-up  of a United Airlines fraud-related crash at Salt Lake City. With every cover-up, the scandal involved more people in key government positions—and a greater need to silence the corruption-fighter.

 After the NTSB blocked Stich from presenting the major evidence that enabled PSA to crash, Stich then filed a federal lawsuit, Dec. 17, 1980, against the NTSB, seeking a court order requiring the NTSB to receive evidence that explained the primary cause of the great PSA crash. (As a FAA airline safety inspector, Stich had repeatedly seen NTSB board members covering up for FAA misconduct that enabled the crashes to continue. Among these were the December 16, 1960 United Airlines crash into New York City, the world's worst at that time; and other United Airlines crashes at Denver, Salt Lake City, Portland, Oregon, among others.)

Within a couple of days after Stich filed the lawsuit at San Francisco, Assistant U.S. Attorney George Stoll in the San Francisco office contacted him by phone. Stoll agreed with Stich that the NTSB should be required to reopen the investigation. During this conversation, Stoll stated:

It’s ridiculous that the NTSB did not investigate further into the reported partying. ... The investigation should be reopened. ... I am going to bring pressure on them [NTSB] through the Department of Justice to see if they won’t reopen the investigation. ... The government has responsibility to see to it that its agencies do their jobs. ...

I can go ahead and file a motion to dismiss in the next few days, but I’m not satisfied with that because I don’t think in this case the government’s skirts are totally clean, and I don’t think it’s my job to cover up. ... I agree with you that what she said, passenger Helen Rhea, was far more than an investigator in many cases is reasonably likely to hear. It certainly is pregnant with some very serious implications. ... It is ridiculous.

Stoll stated to Stich that he was recommending to his superiors in Washington that the government supports his federal filing, and that the NTSB be ordered to reopen the investigation and admit evidence of the PSA cockpit crew's all-night partying before the 7 a.m. takeoff from Sacramento. Stoll also stated that he was recommending that the NTSB be investigated, as was obviously necessary.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Stoll was unaware of the long history of cover-up by his Washington bosses in the U.S. Department of Justice that Stich had previously experienced and documented. Stich knew that Stoll’s recommendations would be denied. If Stoll was not blocked, the series of scandals involving earlier aviation disasters could receive worldwide publicity.

The Sudden Lie and Reversal of Concern

A week later, contradicting what he had previously stated to Stich, Assistant U.S. Attorney George Stoll filed a motion to dismiss the request for an order, stating in the motion to dismiss:

“There is no question in this case that the Board has performed its duty and conducted a substantial investigation.”

That Department of Justice tactic would be repeated numerous times thereafter, as the system protected itself.

The complaint against the NTSB had been assigned to U.S. District Judge Stanley Weigel  in the Northern District of California at San Francisco. During the various motions by the U.S. Attorney to dismiss the lawsuit, Weigel admitted the gravity and probable consequences of the allegations in Stich's complaint. Under federal case law, the allegations in the complaint must be accepted as true in opposing motions to dismiss. Also, he had a responsibility under Title 18 U.S.C. § 4 to receive Stich's testimony and evidence when Stich reported the federal crimes to a federal court as required by that statute.

The lawsuit could be dismissed only if the allegations did not state facts constituting a federal cause of action. Judge Weigel dismissed the action, falsely stating that Stich was appealing an order of the NTSB, and that it came under federal statute, Title 49 U.S.C. § 1903(d). Stich did not file his cause of action under that statute. He did not appeal an order. He filed it under Title 28 United States Code Section 1361, giving federal courts the authority to force an administrative agency to comply with the law, and receive Stich's evidence. Judge Weigel stated in part:

“This is a matter that is properly before the Court of Appeals, and in a way I am sorry, because it is a fascinating subject and I would like very much to have it before me. But under the law, I don’t think I properly can.” 

He also stated that it should have been filed in the U.S. Court of Appeals. That was incorrect. But, if the complaint was filed in the wrong federal court, under law he was required, in the interest of justice, to transfer the case to the Court of Appeals, rather than dismiss the action.

Repeated Acknowledgment of Concern—
And Sudden Cowardly Cover-Up

Stich then filed an appeal, which was heard by U.S. Appeal Judges James Browning, Joseph Sneed, and Mary Schroeder. They also admitted the gravity of Stich's allegations. In their May 27, 1982, decision, the judges dismissed the appeal, stating:

Although appellant’s concern for the safety of future airline passengers is commendable, in view of the recent decision of the United States Supreme Court in Valley Forge Chris­tian College v. Americans United for Separa­tion of Church and State, Inc., 102 S.Ct. 752 (1982), the judgment [of dismissal] must be affirmed.

Article III of the United States Constitution limits federal court jurisdiction to “cases or contro­versies.” Consistent with this limitation, litigants may not make claims for relief in federal court without showing an actual or threatened personal injury. “At an irreducible minimum, Art. III requires the party who invokes the court’s authority to ‘show that he personally has suffered some actual or threatened injury as a result of the putatively illegal conduct of the defendant ....’” Valley Forge, supra, 102 S.Ct. at 758, quoting Gladstone, Realtors v. Village of Bellwood, 441 U.S. 91, 99, 99 S.Ct. 1601, 1608 (1979). Even absent an article III bar, this court should refrain from adjudicating disputes based on generalized grievances shared by all citizens. Warth v. Seldin, 422 U.S. 490, 499-500, 95 S.Ct. 2197, 2205-06 (1975).

Stich’s concern, the risk of future airline crashes, is real enough. That concern does not, however, rise to the level of an actual or threatened injury. The risk is shared by Ameri­cans generally. Absent an injury which threatens Stich in a way which distinguishes him from the populace as a whole, federal court action is barred.

[Dismissal is] Affirmed.

Another federal statute that requires federal courts to exercise jurisdiction when the Federal Aviation Act is violated is Title 49 United States Code Section 1487. That statute states:

Any party in interest may apply to the district court of the United States ... for the enforcement of ... this Act, or such rule, regulation, requirement, ... such court shall have jurisdiction to enforce obedience thereto by a writ of injunction or other process, mandatory or otherwise, re­straining such person, his officers, ... from further violations of such provision of this Act or of such rule, regulation, requirement ... and requiring their obedience thereto.

Legal Filings Relating To Legal Action
Against NTSB

Stich's appeal brief filed in U. S. Court of Appeals at San Francisco.

By their action, the Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court continued to aid and abet the corruption by key people in key government operations, the obstruction of justice by federal district and appellate judges over whom the Supreme Court Justices had supervising responsibilities.

Federal Judges Admitted the Seriousness of the Charges

The court of appeals judges did acknowledge the gravity of the charges in the action against the FAA and NTSB, stating that these were matters for Congress to investigate. (The federal crime reporting statute, Title 18 U.S.C. § 4, showed the mandatory nature of federal judges, or other officials, to receive information from anyone knowing of a federal crime.)

Circumventing the Blocks in Government Offices:
Prompting Attacks on Corruption-Fighter

Thinking that the American public would show outrage and act, he published the documentary on aviation disasters just as the PSA tragedy occurred. It was called Unfriendly Skies and received excellent book reviews. Stich appeared on hundreds of radio and TV appearances, and gave talks before large audiences, and received many complimentary comments from the public. These actions threatened powerful people in government, especially within the U.S. Department of Justice, federal judges—and Supreme Court Justices.  

His expanded second edition in 1981 described the enabling role in the corruption and resulting tragedies by personnel  in control of the U.S. Department of Justice, federal judges, and Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court—the most powerful people in government. The main power in government was at risk of suffering major consequences if Captain Stich succeeded in showing how they had suffered, and the people responsible.

These actions prompted a scheme against the corruption-fighter that expanded out of control, exposing other areas of corruption, and  showing the ability of a powerful force in government that can turn any state or federal government entity, and media and other shills, against the American people.

Start of a Scheme to Silence the Corruption Fighter

In 1982, a bizarre scheme was initiated by a CIA-FBI-front law firm in San Francisco, Friedman, Sloan and Ross. That sham lawsuit filed in the California courts at Fairfield, California was barred by lack of personal and subject matter jurisdiction, barred  by dozens of  California statutes and controlling decisional laws, and barred by landmark U.S. Supreme Court decisions. The scheme targeted and eventually seized Stich's assets that funded his expensive corruption fighting efforts. It also halted his efforts to expose and halt the corrupt activities that were continuing to play enabling roles in many of the continuing aviation disasters (and as he would later learn, corruption in other areas of covert government operations).

Judges at Every Level of California Courts
Aided and Abetted the Scheme

Every level of the California judicial system protected the scheme. Every one of the dozens of state and federal statutes that barred the action was repeatedly violated, and approved by judges in the California appellate courts and the California Supreme Court. The one exception was Justice Stanley Mosk in the California Supreme Court. He voted to hear Stich's appeal in 1983. It required a majority of the California Supreme Court Justices to accept a case for hearing. The other Justices refused  to act, and aided and abetted, the unprecedented massive violations of state and federal protective laws and constitutional protections that were criminalizing the California judicial system.

California Judges Compounded their Repeated Law Violations
With Sham Frivolous Labels to Deny Due Process Appeal Remedies

Confronting Captain Stich from the very beginning of the life-and-death FAA assignment, one incomprehensible and illegal obstacle after the other occurred. It started again as California judges, rendering orders inflicting great personal and financial harm upon Stich, lacking personal and subject matter jurisdiction, and repeatedly violating dozens of clear state and federal statutes, labeled every exercise of due process appeal remedies a frivolous act. That allowed  the California judges to ignore the violations they were approving to carry out the scheme, and deprive Stich of his civil and constitutional due process remedies. 

Stich filed appeals with the California court of Appeals and was denied relief from the massive violations of state and federal laws that they were in a position of trust, and paid, to correct. The same occurred when Stich filed an appeal with  the California Supreme Court. The only judge on that court that would hear the case was highly respected Stanley Mosk. The court decision showed this, but because a majority did not join in that decision, the unprecedented usurpation of the law continued. (Stich had heard from sources that there were serious problems in the California courts relating to this matter.)

Stich then filed an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, in December 1985, in case number A-313. The Supreme Court Justices upheld the violations by denying a hearing.

Example of tactics used by California judges to carry out the scheme and continue the deadly corruption at the federal level.

Repeated Sabotage of His Paid Lawyers

Stich discovered he was being sabotaged by the lawyers that he paid thousands of dollars to defend against the sham lawsuit. After several years of this repeated occurrence, it became obvious that a powerful force was behind these actions. Stich had already spent hundreds of hours studying legal procedures in law libraries in his earlier court filings against the FAA and NTSB, making it easy to discover the massive amounts of law barring the sham lawsuit.

Exercising Federal Defenses To Halt Record-Setting
Number of Violations Of State and Federal Laws
Inflicting Great Harm on Corruption-Fighter

The violation by California judges of any one of the dozens of California and federal laws that were repeatedly violated constituted a federal cause of action for which there were federal remedies. Federal judges were required to provide federal court access and federal defenses. At that time, the primary remedies against the sham action were the declaratory judgment act, to declare the validity of prior judgments that were final determination of the issues. The second primary cause of action was the civil rights act to address the repeated violations of the multiple California and federal statutes and constitutional due process. Any subsequent order constituted new violations and constituted another federal cause of action.

Complicity of Federal Judges Supporting the Scheme

Stich then filed an action in the federal courts at Sacramento under several federal causes of actions for which federal judges had a mandatory duty to provide a federal court forum and relief if violations were shown. The primary federal issues sought:

Prior Corruption Cover-Up Extended To
Direct Role in Silencing Corruption Fighter

In every prior action filed in the Ninth Circuit federal courts in California, attempts to report the corrupt and deadly corruption in the FAA, and the NTSB cover-ups of those problems, were unlawfully blocked by federal district and appellate judges. Now, the tactics by federal judges were denying federal defenses for the whistleblower that were part of the scheme to silence him.

Sacramento federal district judge Raul Ramirez promptly dismissed the action at the first and only hearing, without allowing the case to be heard. That action aided and abetted the gross violations perpetrated by the California judges in that sham lawsuit. Something serious was amiss, but it would be several years before there was sufficient evidence to reveal the probable source of the attacks upon the corruption fighter.

Permanent Termination of Due Process While
Inflicting Great Personal and Financial Harm

As Stich continued to lose propertiesincluding his home on a mountain side near Green Valley, due to the continuing unlawful orders by California judges, he again filed a federal lawsuit in the federal courts at Sacramento, seeking to halt the losses and the great stress that he was under. Every new order rendered by the California judges, which continued to inflict grave personal and property harm, constituted new federal causes of actions in federal courts. Failure to exercise that right is a forfeiture of them.

He filed another action, as provided by law, seeking to halt the additional actions by California  judges that were causing him to lose valuable properties, including his residence on a mountain top near Green Valley. That action was assigned to federal judge Milton Schwartz, who continued the suspension of Stich federal remedies. Schwartz then compounded that action by an illegal and unconstitutional order permanently barring him from filing any papers in any  federal district or appellate court.

This was bizarre. Illegal, unconstitutional, and criminal actions could now be taken against Stich, and he was barred from defending himself. The daily stresses that would continue in the California courts from losing his life assets, recognizing the criminal nature of the actions by California and federal judges, and recognizing the hopelessness of his position, more than once brought him to tears.

What was occurring was a criminal takeover of powerful government entities, criminally misused against someone who was trying to halt a pattern of horrific events, losing everything and about to become homeless.  This was unprecedented in any modern industrial nation! Subsequent appeals were denied.

Carte Blanche Termination of Liberty and Justice for All

That order gave the California judges and the CIA-front law firm carte blanche immunity to continue inflicting great personal and financial harm upon Stich, with total immunity from any consequences. That order was obviously illegal and unconstitutional, and rendered with the approval of every subsequent federal judge and Supreme Court Justices.

Stich then filed an appeal with the federal appellate courts at San Francisco. As they did with the lawsuit against FAA and the lawsuit against NTSB. Stich then filed a petition for writ of certiorari to the U.S. Supreme Court. That petition included not only the gross violations of civil and constitutional rights by the California judges, but also the gross violations by lower federal court judges to perform their mandatory duties and provide a federal court forum and order relief. The Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court have supervising responsibilities over the conduct of federal district and appellate judges. The Supreme Court Justices also violated the statute, Title 42 USC § 1986, that requires anyone, who becomes aware of violations of a person's civil rights, to provide relief, if they are capable of doing so.

Prison For Acting to Halt Tragedies Enabled By
Corruption and Attacks Upon Corruption-Fighter

Corruption Discoveries Greatly Expanded

Captain Stich's discovery of corruption had started with the life-and-death-assignment in the FAA, and then expanded to include the political NTSB board members, the cover-ups by Department of Justice personnel, and then to federal judges. It then expanded. Starting in 1978, he had published the first edition of the not-for-profit book, Unfriendly Skies, and appeared as guest and expert on hundreds of radio and TV shows, attempting to inform and get public support.

Unprecedented Discovery of Trove of Covert
And Corrupt Activities

These efforts generated considerable personal sympathy, but no action. But his corruption-fighting efforts made him known to former government personnel in the CIA, FBI, DEA, former drug smugglers—working for CIA and DEA personnel, former Mafia insiders, and others. These were key people who had been directly involved in numerous operations that were being lightly addressed in the media. They included:

Legal Filing Combining Unprecedented Issues

As Stich received information about the CIA drug smuggling and other matters that were serious crimes against the United States, he exercised his requirement under the federal crime reporting statute, Title 18 U.S.C. § 4, reporting additional criminal activities that he and his sources had discovered; and seeking relief from the ongoing illegal actions by California judges that were then resulting in the lost of his home.

Further Criminalizing Attacks to Silence Corruption-Fighter

That filing triggered an attack from the combination consisting of federal prosecutor David Levi and federal judges Milton Schwartz, Raul Ramirez, Edward Garcia, and magistrate John Moulds. They all participated in  the charges against Captain Stich, by charging him with criminal contempt of court for having filed papers in the federal court that violated the prior illegal and unconstitutional order.

Violated the Constitutional Right to a Jury Trial and
Subjected to a Kangaroo Court

A scheme such as this had little chance of succeeding in a jury trial. With Stich's Sacramento attorney, Joel Pegg, assisting federal prosecutor David Levi, Stich was denied his constitutional right to a jury trial, and was being charged, prosecuted and judged by the same groups criminally involved in the cover-ups of the corruption brought to their attention.

Subverted by DOJ Prosecutor David Levi, Federal Judges
nd Sabotaged by Personal Attorney

Sacramento attorney, Joel Pegg, the attorney to which Stich had paid $20,000 (1980 dollars) to represent him, then sabotaged him, and acted to deprive Stich of his defenses. Just prior to the age of 70, and recovering from quadruple open heart surgery, the order from the federal judges that were themselves involved in criminal acts, sentenced Captain Stich to six months in federal prison. (His legal secretary, Karen Fogel, was privately supportive of Stich, and mysteriously died at a young age shortly thereafter.)

Supreme Court Justice Kennedy's Record
In the
Tragedy Enablers

Stich filed a petition for emergency stay to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals judges on October 5, 1988, seeking to stay the sentence of six months incarceration. That was denied by the appellate judges as they protected the group and approved of the unprecedented civil and constitutional violations the criminal obstructions of justice that arose from blocking Stich's actions seeking to report the criminal activities and exercise federal defenses. That October 5, 1987, appeal was denied.

Judge Anthony Kennedy's Complicity

Stich was ordered to turn myself in on January 14, 1988; he had to act fast. Over the Christmas holidays, he prepared a petition to Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Anthony Kennedy (before he became a Justice of the United States Supreme Court). Stich worked to submit the petition for submission to Kennedy the following Monday. The wording in this petition to Judge Kennedy was similar to the wording filed in the October 5, 1987, appeal to the Ninth Circuit court of appeals. Kennedy denied the stay.

On March 4, 1988, when Captain Stich appeared before Judge Raul Ramirez, expecting to be given a date to turn himself in, Judge Ramirez ordered him seized and imprisoned. Stich had not made arrangement for his loyal companion, Midas, nor the many other things that needed to be done. Rather than allow Stich to appear at the designated prison, at the age of 67, he was paraded from one prison to another, in chains, stopping at public facilities between prisons. He was put in  solitary confinement for four weeks. There were times when he thought of committing suicide. But they had more to inflict upon the former Naval Aviator who had survived five years in World War II only  to suffer greater harm from a greater and silent enemy.

Federal district judge Anthony Kennedy was a judge in the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit at San Francisco from March 20, 1975, until leaving for his place on the Supreme Court of the United States in 1988. During this period on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals at San Francisco, Judge Kennedy was one of the judges that:

Kennedy's  Lies At His Senate Confirmation Hearing

Kennedy had testified at great lengths during his televised Senate confirmation hearing for appointment to the Supreme Court, expressing repeated concerns for due process, constitutional safeguards, respect for privacy. Kennedy denied me relief. The U.S. Senate confirmed Kennedy for the Supreme Court position on February 3, 1988, and he was sworn in a few days later. These matters were known to members of Congress. Captain Stich had kept them informed through letters from 1965 to that date and beyond.

Other Related Filings

Petitions sent to U.S. Supreme Court Justices were denied, thereby approving the latest tactic to silence the corruption-fighter.

Exercising Another Federal Defense That Revealed
Another Part of the Criminal Conspiracy

The corruption-fighter was losing his home because the mortgage on his home needed to be replaced and the California judges refused to release the lis pendens they placed on the properties.  Denied the defenses and protections in California law by California judges, and denied the defenses and protections in federal laws by federal judges in the district and appellate courts, the corruption-fighter sought one  last remedy: Chapter 11 in the bankruptcy courts that permit a corporation to rearrange any financial or other problem and prevent loss of the properties.

A bankruptcy court judge also has the responsibility to provide relief from the civil rights violations under
Title 42 USC § 1983-1986. Anyone who knows of such violation and who is in a position to halt the violations, and fails to do so, violates the 1986 part of that Act. The corruption fighter relied on this responsibility in the Civil Rights statutes.

His $10 million in real estate investments were in excellent financial condition, but the periodic renewal of mortgages that were a part of any real estate holdings were blocked by the lis pendens illegally placed by the California judges at the request of the CIA-front  law firm, Friedman, Sloan and Ross, all a part of the civil rights violations.  

At the first couple of hearings, Los Vegas bankruptcy judge Robert Jones refused to take jurisdiction  and stated he would issue an order removing the lis pendens, and dismiss the bankruptcy filing. The corruption-fighter had hired two attorneys to bring about that decision: Las Vegas attorney Joshua Landish and San Francisco-area attorney Vernon Bradley.

 At that time, Stich was not aware of the massive corruption existing in the bankruptcy courts that involve Department of Justice trustees, federal judges, and cooperating lawyers.

DOJ Personnel and Federal Judges Corruptly
Seizing Assets That Funded Corruption-Fighting

With immunity well established, no fear of retaliation anywhere in government, and the conspiracy including the most powerful groups in government, there was no limit to the blatant violations of every protection in the laws and constitution  of the United States. The next stage was finishing off the corruption fighter, who at nearly 70 years of age, had no chance to recuperate. Again, two lawyers that Stich had paid to prevent the taking of his assets acted on behalf of the scheme.

Court records clearly show the Las Vegas bankruptcy judge, Robert Jones and Stich's own Las Vegas attorney, Joshua Landish, discussing the seizure and liquidation of Stich's $10 million in assets (1980s value), without Stich's knowledge, without the constitutional due process rights of a hearing  and legal cause.  Stich hired that attorney to prevent the seizure of his assets. Instead, without Stich's knowledgeand obvious to bankruptcy judge Robert Jonesattorney Joshua Landish urged Judge Jones to seize and liquidate the $10 million in financially-sound and financially current real estate.

(Judge Robert Jones was later promoted to U.S. District Judge in the federal courts at Reno, Nevada; DOJ prosecutor David Levi, who was part of  the conspiracy, was promoted to a federal district court judge at Sacramento, California; and district judge Michael Mukasey was promoted to U.S. Attorney General of the United States.)

Transferring Case to Oakland, the Judicial Circuit Complicit in the Corruption

The bankruptcy case was then transferred to Oakland, California, making it more convenient for the Friedman law firm to profit from the seizure. It was in a federal court system where most of the prior judicial cover-ups and complicity in the scheme existed. And it would be controlled by Department of Justice Trustee, Charles Duck.

Criminal Contempt of Court Charge For Exercising Legal and
 Constitutional Right to Object To Illegal Life Asset Seizure

In accordance with the laws and Constitution of the United States, Stich filed an objection to the corrupt judicial and Department of Justice seizure of his assets without cause and in violation of due process. After Stich filed an objection, federal bankruptcy judge Edward Jellen at Oakland charged Stich with criminal contempt of court for filing that defense. (Jones had previously issued an illegal order, and over half a dozen other federal district judges, voiding the legal and constitutional right to defend and object to the corrupt seizure and liquidation of his life's assets.) These matters are detailed in a chapter from the book, Defrauding America.

Media Attention Reported DOJ Trustee
In Nation's Worst Trustee Corruption

While Department of Justice trustee Charles Duck was liquidating Stich's properties, media publicity from the history of Duck's corrupt seizure of assets showed his conduct as the worst trustee bankruptcy in history. Media publicity forced Department of Justice personnel to file minor charges against Duck, sentencing him to a short term in a minimum security detention center. After being criminally charged, federal judges awarded Charles Duck funds from the liquidation of Stich's assets.

Murder of Attorney Reporting Corruption
In the Same Bankruptcy Courts

While Stich was experiencing these events, a San Rafael attorney, Dexter Jacobson, had an appointment with FBI agents at San Francisco to provide evidence of the corruption that Stich was also experiencing. Primary people at risk were dozens of federal judges and Department of Justice personnel in bankruptcy court proceedings.

While these matters were occurring, Department of Justice personnel in the Boston and New York City offices were involved with crime figures James "Whitey" Bulger in the Boston  offices, and with Gregory Scarpa, Sr., in the New York City offices, in the murder of U.S. citizens, reflecting  the culture of the people in control of the U.S. Department of Justice that Captain Stich had encountered for the prior 20 years.

Legal Filings Related to Asset Seizure

Petition to U.S. Supreme Court for illegal and unconstitutional property seizure , September 5, 1994. The $10 million in property that was seized provided the funds that exposed the corruption that Stich and his group of insiders had discovered, including the corruption involving Department of  Justice personnel and federal judges that seized the properties.

Petition for relief to U.S. Supreme Court, August 15, 1994, seeking relief from the judicial seizure of $10 million in assets that funded exposure of the corruption in government offices.

Life Assets Seized, Without Hearing or Cause:
Your Supreme Court Justices in Action

Life assets seized without hearing, without cause, and through the criminal misuse of government powers by Department of Justice personnel, dozens of federal judges, and the Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court. (Remember this as you recite the pledge of allegiance, and get to the words, "with liberty and justice for all.")

Another Criminal Contempt of Court By
San Francisco Federal Judge Vaughn Walker

Prison, taking of life assets, humiliation, confronted with criminal misuse of every form of liberty and justice, still another criminal act by federal judges was inflicted upon Captain Stich. (Remember, all of these attacks resulted from his acceptance of the official life-and-death assignment years earlier!)

At the end of the first six months in prison, including four weeks of solitary  confinement, another criminal contempt of court charge was filed against Stich by San Francisco federal judges Marilyn Patel and Vaughn Walker, for an earlier attempt to report the criminal activities in a federal court outside of the Ninth Circuit. As Stich was released, he was again charged with criminal contempt of court and while waiting for trial, confined to house arrest. Four years later, the criminal contempt of court charge was suddenly cancelled.

At that time, the corruption that Stich and his confidants had discovered played an enabling role in:

And the subsequent catastrophic events resulting from the corruption Stich reported:

Possible Reason for Dropping The
Criminal Contempt of Court Charges

Possibly motivating the dropping of criminal contempt of court charges was the worsening of the catastrophic events made possible by the corruption in government positions that Captain Stich and his group had discovered, tried to report and halt, and for which he was targeted by possibility the nation's most encompassing conspiracy to  silence a whistleblower and corruption fighter.

Unprecedented Lawsuit Named the Justices
Of U.S. Supreme Court as Defendants,
Based on Deadly Cover-Ups

The complicity in these events by the Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court caused Captain Stich to file a lawsuit against the Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court (Oct 20, 1989, Nr. 89-2941) in the federal courts in the District of Columbia. The purpose of the lawsuit was to focus public attention on the charges in that lawsuit and alert the public to the serious misconduct in powerful government institutions. That lawsuit was not dismissed as soon as it was filed.

Criminal statutes do not provide immunity against the criminal acts of any government personnel, and especially those entrusted to prevent such crimes: personnel in the U.S. Department of Justice, federal judges, and Supreme Court Justices. They are virtually never prosecuted unless their conduct generate a backlash against  Department of Justice personnel (as occurred with two federal judges, Robert Aguilar, in San Jose, because of his criticism of DOJ conduct); and Harry Claiborne in Las Vegas.

Since media people examine lawsuits filed in federal court, and since this might be the only lawsuit in the nation's history filed against the Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court, it would be of media interest. Instead, media personnel and media corporations, that had for decades kept information on hardcore criminality by high government personnel from the public—as they had done for decades, especially the decades of CIA drug smuggling—kept the information about the lawsuit and the charges from the American public.

The Justices' reply to the lawsuit raised the defense that the Justices were immune from lawsuits. Nothing was said to deny the validly of the charges—as in prior or subsequent lawsuits.

As with the decades of criminal misconduct involving high government officials. America's media personnel and media corporations covered up this unprecedented lawsuit. To have done otherwise would have provided information that could adversely affect the system if a sufficient percentage of the American public reacted.

Secret CIA-Funded Bank Account For
Federal Judge Stanley Sporkin
Reflects Corruption in U.S. Federal Courts

CIA personnel had described to Stich the close relationship of CIA personnel and federal judges. CIA general Counsel Stanley Sporkin, for instance, became a federal judge in the powerful District of Columbia courts. Records provided to Stich by the head of the covert CIA operation based in Honolulu, BBRDW, Sporkin was shown as having a secret CIA bank account corruptly funded by the CIA.

In several of Captain Stich's books, including Defrauding America, and Explosive Secrets of Covert CIA Companies, Stich reported a discovery  he made while examining boxes of CIA documents from a secret CIA operation based in Honolulu, known as BBRDW. The boxes were given to Stich by the former titular head of that CIA operation and by the San Francisco law office of Melvin Belli. In those boxes was a envelope containing a hand-written list containing the names of six people that has secret CIA bank accounts funded by the CIA, and the code names for each of the accounts. 

Among the more recognized names were Vice-President George Bush; Richard Armitage, and Stanley Sporkin. Armitage was a United States Deputy Secretary of State at the State Department. From 1983 to 1989, he was Assistant Secretary of Defense. The code name for Sporkin's account was Slimy Affirm.

Sporkin's Conduct Continued into Federal Courts

Approximately ten years prior to 9/11, as corruption-enabled terrorist successes were occurring, Stich tried to report and  halt the corruption by filing a federal action under  the federal crime reporting statute, in the federal courts in the District of Columbia. Former CIA legal counsel and then federal judge, Stanley Sporkin, blocked the reporting of those matters.

In 1990, as the corruption was enabling the start of terrorist successes, Captain Stich submitted for filing in the federal courts in the District of Columbia a federal crime report (Title 18 U.S.C. § 4). Judge Stanley Sporkin, former general counsel for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), continued the judicial practice of refusing to file the action that he had a mandatory duty to file. (Federal judges don't have the authority to deny to anyone the mandatory duty to report federal crimes simply because federal judges are protecting  the guilty!)

  • Stich filed a notice of appeal with the U.S. Court of Appeals.

  • Department of Justice personnel filed a motion for summary affirmance to dismiss the appeal. 

  • Stich filed a May 22, 1990, opposition to the motion for summary affirmance/dismissal.

  • The court of appeal judges supported Sporkin's illegal dismissal.

Emergency Petition Reporting Deadly Corruption
And Unprecedented Apology By
Supreme Court Justice Byron White

The corruption and the consequences were worsening. In 1991, Stich sent a 60-page Emergency Petition to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Byron White, while the lawsuit against the Supreme Court Justices was still in the courts. Justice White had a reputation for a high level of integrity and his unprecedented response indicated his concern for the charges made in that Emergency Petition. .

Justice White's unprecedented personal response, dated October 28, 1991, reflected his concern, as he apologized in writing for not being able—as  single Justice—to help.

It was surely the first time in the history of the U.S. Supreme Court that one of the Justices, informed of crimes against the United States, resulting in great tragedies and threatening the security of the nation, put in words his concern and inability to help in such important matters. What powerful force kept him from acting on such serious nation-affecting matters?

That response strongly suggested a powerful force existed that required the U.S. Supreme Court Justices to become complicit in criminal activities that had, and would continue to have, catastrophic consequences. Shortly after that October 1991 letter, Justice White retired, in early 1993. He died on April 16, 2002.

Sampling of Events Occurring While Blocking
Corruption Reports And
Attacking the Corruption-Fighter

Last Judicial Filings Prior to September 11, 2001,
Listing Corruption That Would Made 9/11 Possible

The consequences were so dire and involved people in control of the most powerful offices in the U.S. government that Stich could not simply give up. As the terrorist successes made possible by the widespread corruption started, the corruption-fighter submitted for filing another lawsuit in the federal courts at Oakland, California. Despite the gravity of the charges made in that lawsuit, federal judges refused to file it, continuing the corrupt conduct that started 20 years earlier.

Stich then filed the lawsuit in the federal courts at Reno. Being further removed from the federal courts in California, where Stich encountered 30 years of  judicial anarchy, the Reno lawsuit did not encounter the immediate dismissal. However, every request by Stich for the defendants to respond to interrogatives and allow the action to proceed were blocked by U.S. District Judge Edward Reed. Even after 9/11 showed another tragedy made possible by the corruption, Judge Reed dismissed the action before it could get started. The judges in the Ninth Circuit at San Francisco continued their approval of the unlawful dismissal as they had done since the 1970s.

Urgent Letters and Emergency Petitions Sent Direct
To Supreme Court Justices In 2001Prior to 9/11

Certified letter sent to Justice Anthony Kennedy on Jan. 2, 2001. No response. The gravity of the charges made, by a person  who was in positions to have learned of such matters, and his decades of credibility, made it  either irresponsible not to seek information—or the necessity to protect themselves and their peers from the consequences of their conduct.

Certified letter to Supreme Court Justice William Rehnquist, January 2, 2001.  The same letter was sent to the other Justices, including Justice Ginsberg, January 2, 2001; and Justice Souter, Jan02, 2001.pdf.

Petition for Emergency Petition to Supreme Court Justice Sandra O'Connor, Jan. 5, 2001. raising the issues of the crime reporting responsibilities; the ongoing  consequences of the federal offenses; the gross attacks on the reporter of the corruption that criminalized the Department of Justice and the federal courts.

Certified letter to Justice Clarence Thomas, January 15, 2001, combined with emergency petition for relief, describing documented criminal activities in government offices, being reported to a federal official under the mandatory requirements of the federal crime reporting statute, Title 18 U.S.C. § 4, requiring the reporting of such serious matters to a federal judge or other federal official (including Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court). The letter stated in part:

"The judicial corruption continues to make possible the infliction of grave harm upon the United States, undermining the rights and protections under the laws and Constitution of the United States, and subverts the internal security of the United States. ... The enclosed petition for extraordinary writ is being submitted to you because of the refusal by Justice Sandra O’Connor to respond to a prior petition sent to her under Supreme Court Rule 22. ... These are matters that fall within the areas of supervisory responsibilities of Supreme Court Justices, and under federal civil rights and criminal statutes. Misuse of the federal courts in the Ninth Circuit as a racketeering enterprise."

Most Horrific Terrorist Successes in U.S. History
Enabled by the Worst Internal Corruption
In the Nation's History: 9/11

The September 11 events started with four groups of hijackers boarding four different airliners at approximately the same time. Then, after the aircraft were airborne, seizing the cockpit door keys from the mostly female flight attendants and then opening the door to the cockpit. The suddenly confronted pilots were easily incapacitated by the long knives that the FAA allowed to be carried aboard the aircraft.

Decades of Red Flag Hijacking Enablers

One hijacked airliner, American Airlines Flight 11 departed from Boston’s Logan Airport for Los Angeles at approximately 8 a.m. Soon after takeoff, hijackers seized the cockpit door keys from a vulnerable flight attendant, entered the cockpit unnounced, and used their knives to disable or kill the pilots. They then took control of the aircraft and crashed it into the North Tower of the World Trade Center at 8:46 a.m. (A simple order by FAA management that cabin flight attendants not have keys—obvious for decades—would have prevented those hijackings, prevented the 3,000 horrific deaths, and eliminated the two wars and other calamities that followed.


United Airlines Flight 175 also left from Logan Airport, at 8:14, enroute to Los Angeles. It was flown into the South Tower of the World Trade Center at 9:03 a.m.; American Airlines Flight 77 departed Washington's Dulles International Airport in Virginia at 8:20 a.m., enroute to Los Angeles. That airliner was crashed into the Pentagon at 9:37 a.m.; United Airlines Flight 93 departed Newark International Airport at 8:42 a.m,, enroute to San Francisco. That aircraft dove into the ground at Shanksville, Pennsylvania at 10:03 a.m.

Almost 3,000 people endured these horrific events. If the American public knew of the corruption that preceded and enabled those events to occur, especially the corruption of personnel in the U.S. Department of Justice, corrupt federal judges, and the complicity of the Supreme Court Justices, the reaction of the American public would have had devastating consequences for those people in government that enabled these horrors to occur.

Absolute Secrecy from the Public Was Necessary

This sampling of facts had been made known for years by Captain Stich to members of Congress, to media personnel and corporations, and other sources, all of whom had a moral and legal responsibility to contact Stich and examine his evidence. None did, becoming enablers of the continuing  crimes against the United States and the resulting harm and catastrophic events. They now had a self-serving interest in continuing the cover-ups.

Two Sets of World-Record Aviation Disasters
In New York City

Two sets of world-record aviation disasters occurred in New York City. The first occurred on December 16, 1960. Both of those two world record related airline disasters in New York City involved Captain Rodney Stich exposing their enabling corruption. The corrupt enabling contacts in that disaster and several others of that same airline were the reason why FAA airline safety inspector was given the unprecedented and official life-and-death-assignment that enabled him to discover the high-level corruption in major government positions, that started the powerful attacks against him.

In the second series of aviation disasters in New York City on September 11, 2001, it was Captain Stich exposing and acting to halt the enabling corruption before the horrors occurred.

Post-9/11 Judicial Cover-Up in DC Courts

Captain Stich sought to report the corruption that enabled the deadly multiple hijackings by submitting an action to the federal court in Washington, DC, on April 22, 2002. That action was submitted for filing under the federal crime reporting statute, Title 18 U.S.C. § 4. It addressed the serious problems in the Federal Aviation Administration and elsewhere.

When Captain Stich never received the file-stamped copy, he sent a letter to the clerk of the court, June 20, 2002, questioning why the filing was blocked.

District Judge Coleen Kollar-Kotelly issued an  order, July 1, 2002, that blocked filing the petition and even denying him the right to appeal the illegal act.

Captain Stich sent a letter to federal district judge Coleen Kollar-Kotelly, Aug. 12, 2002, requesting an explanation for refusing to file the lawsuit. No response

 Stich filed a statement of issues in the notice of appeal, Sep. 30, 2002.

Stich submitted for filing an appeal brief, December 6, 2002, which was stamped received December 9, 2002. The appellate judges, fully aware of the gravity of the charges, issued an order dated January 16, 2003, refusing to hear the appeal on the basis of Judge Stanley Sporkin's order 11 years earlier, permanently barring Stich access to the federal courts. The severity of the corruption had reached monumental proportions.

Stich filed an appeal brief with the court of appeals for an en banc hearing. Every appellate judge in the most powerful and influential federal appeal court in the nation was then aware of the serious charges. The enbanc appeal was stamped "received" on January 27, 2003. The entire appellate court then issued an order refusing to hear the matter, and signed by court of appeal judges Edwards, Sentelle, Henderson, Randolph, Rogers, Tatel, and Garland, March 26, 2006. By their documented conduct, they:

A May 15, 2003, order stated refusal to hear the matter. All of these judges knew of the attempts by a former federal agent to report the documented criminal activities that had enabled to occur a long series of airline disasters, and which could be expected to have played a prominent role in the hijackings of four airliners on 9/11.

The issues now were to protect the dozens of federal judges and others, and disregard the consequences of the cover-ups, as was obvious from the worsening consequences in the very beginning.

All of the judges also knew that:

  • The federal crime reporting statute required that federal judges receive information on a federal crime that was offered, and that the requirement is mandatory, as part of the judge's administrative duties. And that blocking the reports were felonies under the obstruction of justice statutes.

Stich submitted a Petition for Writ of Certiorari to the Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court. No action was taken.

Post-9/11 Judicial Cover-Up in New York City Courts:
Absolutely Essential!

After the filing was blocked by every level in the federal courts in the District of Columbia, Captain Stich  submitted for filing a lawsuit in the federal courts in New York on August 8, 2002. The judicial obstruction of justice continued. Even though the filing met the guidelines and the filing fee that required the court to file the action, it was instead stamped as "received" (August 8, 2002). Chief Judge Michael Mukasey refused to allow it to be filed, violating the due process right to federal court access, federal filing rules, and by blocking reports of major federal crimes, covered up for the horrendous 9/11 consequences made possible by the series of prior judicial cover-ups. The documentary evidence of a serious conspiracy with grave implications continued to grow.

Repeat Notice to Supreme Court Justices

After nearly a year of attempting to get the case filed, Stich sent a letter to Chief Justice William Rehnquist and each of the other Supreme Court Justices, advising them of the latest judicial obstruction of justice tactic that was occurring in areas for which they had supervisory responsibilities. Eventually, after a repeat of these letters, Chief Judge in the federal courts in New York City, Michael Mukasey, then filed the lawsuit on September 22, 2003, that by law he should have allowed to be filed 13 months earlier. The Supreme Court Justices had by law  oversight responsibilities over federal district and appellate judges, and were made aware of their obstruction of justice and other offenses since the 1970s.

Those letters put the Justices on notice, again, as done repeatedly since the 1970s, of the federal crimes that were resulting in  great harm to national security, and presented by a person who was in a position  to have discovered the corruption, tragedies occurred before and after his reports, and who had outstanding credibility.

Mukasey's Deception with Supreme Court Justices' Complicity

After those letters were sent, he was apparently secretly ordered by the Supreme Court Justices to file the action, and obviously kept informed what happened next. Judge Mukasey allowed the action to be filed—and simultaneously issued an order, September 22, 2003, dismissing the action; again violating civil filing procedures and obstructing the reporting of possibly the worse charges ever filed in the federal courts

These are mandatory requirements by federal judges, and not rights that can be withheld, such as attempts to keep secret major crimes against the United States by judges entrusted to provide these rights.

In that filing, a major cause of action arose under the federal crime reporting statute, Title 18 U.S.C. § 4, which requires a federal judge to receive information of a federal crime repeated by anyone knowing of such an offense. Stich, with a vast background involving such matters, and unquestioned credibility, and the ultra gravity of his charges, far exceeded the requirements to received the information in the federal filing.

Federal law requires that the allegations made in the Complaint must be accept as true to determine if a federal cause of action had been stated.

Dennis v. Sparks 449 U.S. 24 (1980)("For the purposes of testing sufficiency of the complaint, the allegations of the complaint must be accepted as true.”)

If a federal cause of action had been stated, federal judges must provide a the Plaintiff the right to a court hearing, and judicial relief if the charges are established.

Federal law requires that Supreme Court justices reply to a filing submitted, even if it is denied. Supreme Court Rule 22.6:

"The Clerk will advise all parties concerned, by appropriately speedy means, of the disposition made of an application."

Following their prior practice, many submissions were never acknowledged. To do so would have made a record of the fact that the Justices were made aware of the very serious charges and did nothing about them.

Notice of Appeal to Court of Appeals in New York City
The Site of Two World-Record Aviation Disasters:
40 Years Apart

Stich filed a Notice of Appeal, Oct. 14, 2003, as provided by law. That was followed with an Appeal Brief filed January 3, 2004. That appeal made the judges aware of a major national and judicial scandal, that would be exposed if the lawsuit was allowed to continue.

In response to the DOJ filing a motion to dismiss, Stich filed an Objection to Dismiss, June 3, 2004.

When the Department of Justice never filed the required reply brief, Stich filed a Declaration of Filing Irregularities, Feb. 23, 2004. The U.S. Attorney then filed his brief.

Stich then filed his Reply Brief, Feb. 29, 2004.

Stich submitted for filing a petition for writ of certiorari and writ of mandamus sup_crt_pet_jan_5_2005.pdf

January 5, 2005, petition for writ of certiorari to U.S. Supreme Court of serious matters that included the complicity of the district and appellate judges  in that judicial circuit. The introductory "Questions Presented" section of that brief stated:


      Petitioner presents the following questions for review:

1.   Whether federal judges can legally block Petitioner, or any other former federal agent, or citizen, from reporting federal crimes under the mandatory requirement of the federal crime reporting statute, Title 18 U.S.C. § 4.[1]

2.  Whether judicial orders permanently barring Petitioner from filing any papers in the federal district and appellate courts, deprives him of the fundamental rights and protections guaranteed by the laws and Constitution of the United States.

3.  Whether federal judges can issue unlawful and unconstitutional orders that inflict great and irreparable personal and financial harm upon Petitioner, and then issue unlawful and unconstitutional orders preventing him from exercising legal and constitutional defenses.

4.  Whether the abundance of documentary evidence indicates that judicial orders terminating Petitioner’s exercise of legal and constitutional protections were intended, and acted, to prevent Petitioner from reporting criminal conduct of government officials, and deprive Petitioner the protections intended by U.S. laws and Constitution.

5.  Whether Petitioner’s attempt to protect national interests by reporting federal crimes, and exercising federal defenses against violations of federally protected rights, met the legal definition of frivolous filings of a vexatious litigant—or a tactic to block him from reporting deadly misconduct by people in government positions.

6.  Whether federal district and appellate judges can legally and constitutionally permanently terminate Petitioner’s legal and constitutional right to file papers in federal district, which then terminates the rights and protections guaranteed to all other people.

7.  Whether the acts of district and appellate court justices constitute a racketeering enterprise.

8.  Whether federal judges can order the seizure and liquidation of Petition’s $10 million in lifetime assets, without a hearing, without notice of hearing, without legally recognized cause.

9.  Whether orders can thereafter be rendered barring Petitioner from filing objections to such seizure and liquidation, and then, when objections are filed, they are ordered unfilled, and Petitioner charged with criminal contempt of court for exercising such legal and constitutional rights.

10.Whether the obstruction of justice acts by federal judges enabled to occur the conditions that made it possible for terrorists to hijack four airliners on September 11, 2001, among other preventable national tragedies.

               [1] Title 18 U.S.C. § 4. Misprision of felony. Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.


Summation of legal actions from New York City filings:

9/11 Commission Cover-Ups Enabled By
Federal Judges and Supreme Court Justices

The last cover-up by the Supreme Court Justices enabled the continuation of the corruption in the 9/11 Commission;. The commission included the Department of Justice personnel who had been part of the deep-sixing of advance notice of the series of horrific al Qaeda attacks, enabling the cover-up of the worsening consequences. It also protected other 9/11 enablers.

Partial list of letters to the 9/11 Commission.

Corrupt DOJ-Controlled 9/11 Commission
Enabled Even Worse Consequences

The corrupt culture led to lies that preceded  the horrifically deadly invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, neither of whom were aware of the planned all Qaeda attacks. Iraq was one of the Middle East most westernized nations and the major block to the existence of terrorists (as it subsequently became after the invasion). The U.S. horrific killing of innocent people outraged people throughout the Middle East  and Africa. The motivation for the initial series of attacks by the small al Qaeda group (that was motivated by the Israeli--U.S. brutalities upon the Palestinians) exploded into multiple groups, including the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). There is very little protection against the onslaught of people so outraged by these invasions that they are willing to die as they kill Americans. The genie is out of its bottle!

Did the Decades of Complicity by Supreme Court Justices
Make Them Included in the List of 9/11 Enablers?

The facts and documentation speak for themselves. Either every statement made here is false, or there exists the greatest usurpation of government  power in the history of the United States, and unthinkable in any modern nation. Either way, thousands of people suffered horrendously over a period of decades, from the consequences of the underlying corruptionand the cover-ups of that corruption.

Sampling of information sites:

On a basis of lies, U.S. politicians approved the start of the longest war in U.S. history: the bombings and invasion of Afghanistan, even though the people and the Taliban government had no knowledge of the planned 9/11 attacks.

Media Articles Revealing Simpler Character Traits
Of U.S. Supreme Court Justices

One of many newspaper articles showing Supreme Court justices receiving favors that would affect their conduct was the following article in a New York Times editorial (January 27, 2006), showing the Justices engaging in the same conduct as the lobbyist, Abramoff and members of Congress. Titled, Justice and Junkets" the article stated:

    Justice Antonin Scalia certainly has poor judgment when it comes to vacations. Justice Scalia was apparently unchastened by the criticism of his 2004 duck-hunting excursion with Vice President Dick Cheney, one of the term's most prominent Supreme Court litigants.

      Last September, he skipped the swearing-in of Chief Justice John Roberts Jr. because of another ethically dubious trip, this time to the posh Ritz-Carlton at the Beaver Creek ski resort in Colorado.

      He was there to teach a 10-hour seminar over a couple of days for a conservative group, the Federalist Society. "Nightline" recently reported that the gig left Justice Scalia plenty of time for tennis, fly-fishing and socializing with the group's members, some of whom have business before the Supreme Court. One Federal Society cocktail reception was sponsored in part by the lobbying and law firm that used to employ Jack Abramoff, Tom DeLay's convicted pal and benefactor for golf vacations.

      Justice Scalia's travel is part of a broader affliction on the federal bench. The Los Angeles Times reported in 2004, for example, that Justice Clarence Thomas had accepted thousands of dollars in gifts in recent years, including an $800 leather jacket, a $1,200 set of tires from Nascar and an extravagant vacation from a conservative activist. Federal judges below the Supreme Court level accept dozens of free vacations each year from well-heeled special interests under the guise of "judicial education."

      The judicial lobbying problem is more serious in one respect than the scandal enveloping Congress. Lawmakers operate in an overtly political environment, but the decision-making process of judges is supposed to be impermeable to clever efforts by special interests to buy access and favor.

Documented Conduct Meets Criteria For Crimes Of
Obstruction of Justice and RICO Racketeering Enterprise

Definition of Obstruction of Justice

Criminal statute, Title 18 USC § 1503 makes it a crime to threaten, intimidate, or retaliate against these participants in a criminal or civil proceeding. In addition, section 1503 makes it illegal to attempt the bribery of an official to alter the outcome of a judicial proceeding.

Besides these specific prohibitions in section 1503, the Omnibus Clause states that a person who "corruptly or by threats of force, or by threatening letter or communication, influences, obstructs, or impedes, or endeavors to influence, obstruct, or impede, the due administration of justice" is guilty of the crime of obstruction of justice. This clause offers broad protection to the "due administration of justice." Federal courts have read this clause expansively to proscribe any conduct that interferes with the judicial process.

Definition of Racketeering Enterprise

The documented conduct of the federal judges and the Supreme Court Justices repeatedly blocked the reporting of federal crimes (and Department of Justice personnel), meeting the definition of obstruction of justice. The way that it was done also meets the definition of a Racketeering Enterprise.

Federal criminal statute, Title 18 § 1503, in the Omnibus Clause, states that a person [or group] who:

"corruptly or by threats of force, or by threatening letter or communication, influences, obstructs, or impedes, or endeavors to influence, obstruct, or impede, the due administration of justice" is guilty of the crime of obstruction of justice.

Federal courts have read this clause expansively to proscribe any conduct that interferes with the judicial process, and broadly applied this statute to the "due administration of justice."

Credibility of This Information

The credibility of this information is reflected by:

  • The dozens of documents filed in federal courts, including those sent to the Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court, and the responses.

  • The close relationship between the reported corrupt conduct and the harm resulting from it.

  • The documented and unprecedented actions taken by Department of Justice personnel, dozens of federal judges, and Supreme Court Justices, that were major civil, constitutional, and criminal offenses, and even meeting the criteria of a Racketeering Enterprise (RICO).

  • The decades of  credibility by the corruption fighter, Captain Rodney Stich, and his several dozen key sources from covert and law enforcement operations, all of whom were there. His corruption-fighting efforts went far beyond that of a whistleblower, and started after he was given an unprecedented, official, life-and-death-assignment, as a federal airline safety inspector for the Federal Aviation Agency. That assignment was to halt the aviation safety problems, including corrupt  and criminal activities, that enabled decades of horrific aviation disasters to occur. The misconduct was at a politically-powerful  airline and the politics, incompetence, and corruption at the government's aviation safety agency known to knowledgeable insiders at that time as the "tombstone agency."

Five Years Fighting a Foreign Enemy—Only To
Return Home to a More Sinister Enemy
And Suffer Far Worse Harm!

Captain Rodney Stich spent five years in the U.S. Navy during World War II, a Naval Aviator and Patrol Plane Commander. The Japanese enemy made known their intent. In the United States, Stich enemies—and these of the American public, though they don't recognize the source of their harm.


Cowardly and criminally, these merchants of corruption, harm, and deaths, hide behind their official position of trust, subverting the laws and constitution of the United States, as they Subvert the United States to their own corrupt activities. 


After 40 Years, Giving Up the Fight

After 40 years of fighting a lonely and traumatic crusade, Captain Stich finally gave up the fight through the judicial and other government system. With the dumbing down of the American people, their obsession with trivia, fixation  on tiny screens and 140-character mental limitation, it appeared hopeless. All further articles are for the purpose of showing how the "American people made possible most of the tragedies that occurred.
