Introduction to This Documentary On The Dark Side of U.S. Supreme Court Justices' Conduct This documentary provides specific information on corrupt and criminal misconduct discovered and documented from the 1970s to 2005, and the repeated complicity of the Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court. The information here is of gross misconduct by people in control of the most powerful offices in the United States, and reveals a pattern of corruption unknown in any modern industrial nation. It is continuing at this very moment. 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. The corruption-enabled harm includes: Enabled four decades of life-affecting harm to individual Americans. Sampling of aviation disasters aviation disasters enabled by politics, incompetence, and corruption in the Federal Aviation Administration, formerly known as "the tombstone agency." Enabled a series of corruption-enabled terrorist successes, and those that the continuing corruption can be expected to enable. Primary and direct government personnel complicit in this documentary of unprecedented corruption and resulting tragedies: Department of Justice personnel. Federal judges. Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court. 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, 1960s; it was the world's worst airline disaster at that time. Life-and-Death Assignment In real life, the FAA has groups dedicated to aviation safety and preventing airline crashes. Another segment is affected by politics. A safety-orientated segment in the Federal Aviation Agency gave FAA airline safety inspector, Rodney Stich, the unprecedented and official life-and-death-assignment to halt the safety problems and corruption at that airline—that was aided and abetted by the political interests in the FAA. At that time, the Federal Aviation Agency was known to knowledgeable insiders as the "tombstone agency" because of the many tombstones resulting from the internal misconduct. 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. Three additional aviation disasters occurred while he was under attack. Each of those deadly disasters were enabled by the same safety problems and criminal misconduct that he had reported and tried to correct. Unprecedented "Independent Prosecutor" In another unprecedented event, the FAA inspector used the law in such a manner that he acted similar to an independent prosecutor, conduct a court-like proceeding with a court reporter and a lawyer from the FAA Administrator' staff as a administrator law judge. At the end of the hearings and 4,000 pages of court transcript: Stich filed a FAA closing brief. (http://www.defraudingamerica.com/faa_closing_brief.) Despite the federal reports proving the serious safety problems existed, and the three fatal airline disasters, the standard cover-up in the U.S. government oligarchy occurred. When the head of the FAA Sky Marshal program heard this, he urged Stich to prepare a report to the FAA Administrator and he would cosign the report. This was done. FAA cover letter report to FAA Administrator; Report Part One; Part Two; Part Three. Since the initial attacks upon the FAA safety inspector had to have high-level authority, the subsequent cover-up by the FAA Administrator was expected. www.defraudingamerica.com/faa_start_of_corruption_fighter. Federal Court Filing to Report Federal Crimes Enabling 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: Of the ongoing federal crimes in the government's aviation safety offices that enabled the continuing series of horrific aviation disasters to occur. It could be expected that the corruption and the fraud-enabled aviation disasters would continue if the issues were not addressed and acted upon. That federal district and appellate judges were preventing these serious matters to be presented, constituting obstruction of justice, and that the Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court had, by law, supervising responsibilities over those judges that were committing serious violations of their mandatory duties. Under the federal crime reporting statute, Title 18 U.S.C. § 4, federal judges and any other federal personnel—including Supreme Court Justices—also were required to receive the information and insure that the information was honestly acted upon. 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: all-night drinking and partying before the early 7 a.m. departure from Sacramento. That flight went to San Diego, with one stop at Los Angeles. The information about the cockpit crew's all-night partying 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. (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, which 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 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 appealed the order of dismissal, filing the appeal under Title 28 United States Code Section 1361. That statute gives 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. 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 Judge's order, March 25, 1981, dismissing the NTSB lawsuit. Statement of material issues, April 11, 1981, filed by Stich. Points and authorities, April 11, 1981, filed with the statement of material issues. Opposition to motion to dismiss, April 19, 1981, filed by Stich in response to the U.S. Attorney's attempt to continue the cover-up. That obstruction of justice, seeking to protect wrongdoings in any government department, became the most common reaction to every attempt by Stich to halt not only the corruption and criminal conduct, but also the often tragic consequences of the corruption. Stich's appeal brief s were filed in U. S. Court of Appeals at San Francisco. Transcript of Stich's oral argument before U.S. Court of Appeals, April 23, 1981. Motion to alter or amend, by Stich, the order of dismissal, May 3, 1981. Order dated May 27, 1982, by U.S. Court of Appeals, dismissing the lawsuit. Stich's petition to U.S. Supreme Court, July 17, 1982. Order by U.S. Supreme Court, October 4, 1982, refusing to hear the case. 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 first edition of Unfriendly Skies; it received excellent book reviews. The book became available just as the PSA tragedy occurred. Stich appeared on hundreds of radio and TV appearances, and gave talks before large audiences, receiving many complimentary comments from the public. These actions threatened powerful people 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. 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 any individual exposing corruption or criminality in powerful government positions. 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 if the continuing aviation disasters (and as he would later learn, corruption in other areas of covert government operations). Judges at Every Level of the 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, but it required a majority of the California Supreme Court Justices to accept a case for hearing. The other Justices approved the massive violations that were criminalizing the California judicial system. California Judges Compounded their Repeated Law Violations With Sham Frivolous Labels When Appeals Were Made Confronting Captain Stich from the very beginning of the life-and-death FAA assignment, one illegal obstacle after the other occurred. It started again as California judges, rendering orders inflicting great personal and financial harm upon Stich, labeled every objection or appeal 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. 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: A declaratory judgment that required the California judges to recognize the validity of the prior judgment that was a final determination of the issues 16 years earlier, and which were entered as a final judgment in the states of Colorado, Oklahoma, Texas, Nevada—and California, years earlier. An order preventing the California judges from record-setting civil rights violations, as [provided by the Civil Rights act, Title 42 U.S.C. § 1983-1986. Any one of the dozens of California and federal statutes, controlling decisional laws, landmark Supreme Court decisions, and major constitutional protections, invoked the mandatory duty of federal judges to provide a federal court forum; and for every subsequent act by the California judge invoked a new federal cause of action. 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 corruption in the FAA and the NTSB were unlawfully blocked by federal district and appellate judges. The same tactics were now applied to deny his defenses and enable the sham California action to continue and to protect the judges converting their positions into a criminal enterprise. Sacramento federal district judge Raul Ramirez promptly dismissed the action at the first and only hearing, without allowing the case to be heard. Evidence of a powerful source in the federal government was starting to surface. 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. Permanent Termination of Due Process While Inflicting Great Personal and Financial Harm As Stich continued to lose properties, and his home, due to the continuing unlawful orders by California judges, he again filed a federal lawsuit in the federal courts at Sacramento. 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. That action was assigned to federal judge Milton Schwartz. At the first hearing, he expressed concern, and then scheduled another hearing. At that hearing, the concern was gone. He dismissed the action and compounded it by an illegal and unconstitutional order permanently barring Stich from filing any papers in any federal district or appellate court—despite the continuing harm and gross violations of dozens of state and federal laws. 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 their attacks upon the corruption fighter. 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, they denied relief as they supported the massive violations and harm inflicted upon Stich. Stich then filed a petition for writ of certiorari 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. 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: The head of a former covert CIA airline, who revealed various CIA operations, including drug smuggling involving his and other airlines, CIA delivery of arms to the Irish Republican Army (IRA), and other covert activities. The head of a former CIA operation based in Honolulu that had worldwide attention in the 1980s when its cover was blown by a Honolulu television reporter; and had dealt in drugs, money laundering for Fidel and Imelda Marcus of the Philippines; funded secret bank accounts for well-known politicians and federal judge Stanley Sporkin; and much more. A key CIA operative who was directly involved in the October Surprise operation that corrupted the presidential election between President Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan, including the special role played by George H.W. Bush (Sr.); the CIA arming Islamic Afghan rebels fighting the westernizing government (prior to the arrival of Soviet forces); multiple CIA financial operations, including looting during the savings and loan scandals; and much more. An FBI Special Agent who worked in the New York, City offices where a key FBI supervisor was involved, for years, in the murders of American citizens with a Mafia capo. That FBI agent, a former highly decorated Lt. Colonel and helicopter pilot, repeatedly risked his life for rescuing wounded GIs under heavy fire. When he reported the internal FBI-DOJ corruption to members of Congress, who, as usual, did nothing but relay the letters to the FBI perpetrators, the power of that office was used to charge him with false crimes. That heroic former veteran was then sent to prison, where he still is. A former New York City Mafiosi, the son of a Mafia capo with whom FBI-DOJ personnel were involved in years of murders, and who was a mole in the al Qaeda cell headed by the former mastermind in the World Trade Center bombing and the planned bombings of a dozen U.S. airliners departing Far East locations. Numerous drug smugglers, working for CIA and DEA personnel. And many other professional type male and female sources involved in covert operations totally unknown to the American public. 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. He sought to report additional criminal activities that he and his sources had discovered, while simultaneous seeking relief from the ongoing illegal actions by California judges that were then resulting in the lost of his home. U.S. Judges Upheld Civil and Constitutional Defenses for Vicious Murderers While Denying Them to Former Navy Veteran and Corruption-Fighter Federal judges provided vicious murderers legal and constitutional defenses while repeatedly terminating them for Captain Rodney Stich, who for years had sacrificed his own welfare as he sought to halt the corrupt-criminal-enabled tragedies. Further Criminalizing Attacks to Silence Corruption-Fighter That filing triggered an attack from 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 permanently termination his legal and constitutional right to defend himself. 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 charged, prosecuted and judged by the same groups criminally involved in the cover-ups of the corruption brought to their attention. Textbook example of a kangaroo court—approved by the entire Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and the Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court. Subverted by DOJ Prosecutor David Levi, Federal Judges— And 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. Nearing the age of 70, and recovering from quadruple open heart surgery, federal judges that were themselves involved in criminal acts, sentenced Captain Stich to six months in federal prison. (Pegg's legal secretary, Karen Fogel, who was privately supportive of Stich, mysteriously died shortly thereafter at the young age of 43.) Supreme Court Justice Kennedy's Record As Enable at San Francisco and as Supreme Court Justice Stich filed a petition for emergency stay to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals judges, seeking to stay the sentence of six months incarceration. That was denied by the appellate judges. Appeals Judge Anthony Kennedy's Complicity U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Anthony Kennedy was a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals from 1975 to February 1988. During this time, he was repeatedly made aware of the court filings by Captain Rodney Stich. He was aware of the corrupt-criminal misconduct in key government offices, the years of harm to individual Americans and the series of resulting catastrophic events. He was repeatedly made aware of them, event after the misconduct played enabling roles in the start of al Qaeda successes, and again made aware of the consequences by Supreme Court submissions and personal letters. Some of Kennedy's previous writings—for feel-good public consumption—included "indifference to personal liberty is but the precursor of the state's hostility to it.") ... "a zone of liberty, a zone of protection, a line that's drawn where the individual can tell the Government, 'Beyond this line you may not go." Stich was ordered to turn myself in on January 14, 1988. Over the Christmas holidays, he prepared an Emergency Petition to Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals for filing the following Monday. The wording in this petition was similar to the wording filed with the Ninth Circuit court of appeals. That petition was denied. 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. During this period on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals at San Francisco, the judges: Approved the unlawful dismissal of Captain Stich's lawsuit against the FAA, which then enabled the ongoing aviation safety problems and corrupt acts to continue, enabled the history of fraud-enabled aviation disasters to continue for many years. Approved the unlawful dismissal of the lawsuit against the NTSB, enabling the falsification of official aviation accident reports, including the world record PSA crash into New York City (following the falsification of such fraud-enabled aviation disasters as the United Airline crashes into New York City on December 16, 1960; Denver; Salt Lake City; Portland, Oregon, and others), and cover-up in the downing of TWA Flight 800. Approved the denial of relief by federal judges in the sham lawsuit filed in the California courts by the San Francisco CIA-front law firm of Friedman, Sloan and Ross; approved the gross violations of California and federal statutes and controlling decisional laws that were inflicting great and irreparable harm upon Stich. Approved the criminal contempt of court charges against Stich in retaliation for filing a federal action to halt the criminal activities that he and his group of other former government agents that were inflict great harm upon national interests. Approved the denial of a jury trial, causing Stich to be charged, judged, and sentenced by DOJ personnel and federal judges that were criminally complicit in the criminal activities being reported. Enabled the criminal activities to continue that played enabling roles in a series of terrorist successes. These included the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie; the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center; the bombings of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania; the downing of TWA Flight 800; the easily preventable and forewarned hijackings of four U.S. airliners on September 11, 2001. The definition or criteria for a RICO criminal organization, which also applies to state or federal judges, 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 Captain Stich filed an appeal brief to Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, April 1, 1989. The judges continued their block as they had done since the 1970s of all reports of corruption-related tragedies, and defenses against the gross personal attacks by Department of Justice personnel and federal judges. A petition to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals at San Francisco, March 4, 1991. Denied. Contempt of Court appeal brief to 9th Circuit judges at San Francisco, April 1, 1989. A reply brief to 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, May 26, 1991. Denied. A petition for emergency relief with the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco. January 22, 1992. Petitions sent to U.S. Supreme Court Justices were denied, thereby approving the latest tactic to silence the corruption-fighter. Contempt of court petition to U.S. Supreme Court Justices, March 1991. Contempt of court charges and Justice Anthony Kennedy. 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, Las Vegas bankruptcy judge Robert Jones refused to take jurisdiction and stated he would issue an order removing the lis pendens, and dismay the bankruptcy filing. The corruption-fighter hired two attorneys to protect his interests: Las Vegas attorney Joshua Landish and San Francisco-area attorney ____________ 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 knowledge—and obvious to bankruptcy judge Robert Jones—attorney 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 Charge 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 Rodney Stich. (Remember, all of these attacks resulted from hiss 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: A series of deadly aviation disasters enabled by the problems in the "tombstone agency" and those covering up for the problems.. The harm inflicted upon individual Americans. The DOJ corruption related to Pan Am Flight 103. And the subsequent catastrophic events resulting from the corruption Stich reported: Bombing of World Trade Center, despite prior information of the planned bombing, the names of the bombers, and the Jersey City self-storage unit where the bomb was being constructed, another consequences of the corrupt culture of key personnel in the U.S Department of Justice. The downing of TWA Flight 800, despite prior notice of the planned event. The bombing of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, despite prior notice of the planned event. The continuing murders of American citizens involving brutal crime figures in the Boston and New York City offices, that involved FBI-DOJ personnel. The easily preventable and forewarned horrific hijackings of four U.S. airliners on September 11, 2001 that would not have occurred were it not fort the deep-seated problems in the "tombstone agency" and the corrupt and criminal culture in the U.S. Department of Justice (aided by other enablers). Possible Reason for Dropping The Criminal Contempt of Court Charges Possibly motivating the dropping of criminal contempt of court charges were 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 silenced a whistleblower and corruption fighter. The Pan Am Flight 103 bombing over Lockerbie had occurred The World Trade Center bombing had occurred. 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. Judicial Conduct Far Exceeded the Criteria for a RICO Charge The conduct of these judges far exceeded the criteria for a Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO). Continued Media Cover-Ups 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 CIA personnel had described to Stich the close relationship of CIA personnel and federal judges. CIA general Counsel Stanley Sporkin, was 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 an May 22, 1990, opposition to the motion for summary affirmance/dismissal. The court of appeal judges supported Sporkin's illegal dismissal. Emergency Petition Reporting Corruption, Resulting Consequences, and Criminal Retaliation—and Unprecedented Apology By Supreme Court Justice Byron White The corruption and the consequences were worsening, with the start of corruption-enabled terrorist successes. In a 1991 reaction, 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 shortly thereafter in early 1993. He died on April 16, 2002. Justice White was in the U.S. Navy during World War II, serving in the Pacific theater of operations. Captain Stich, was also in the U.S. Navy, during World War II, in the same Pacific theatre of operations. Stich was the youngest Navy Patrol Plane Commander during that time period. (President George Bush (Sr.) received his Navy wings at the Naval Air Station at Corpus Christi at about the same time as Stich received his Navy wings at Pensacola. Bush claims he was the youngest navy pilot in World War II, beating Stich by several months. However, while Bush was a single-engine pilot, Stich was the youngest Patrol Plane Commander, a very prestigious position held by a very few limited pilots.) Sampling of Events Occurring While DOJ Personnel And Federal Judges Were Blocking Efforts To Halt the Enabling Corruption The Pan Am Flight 103 bombing over Lockerbie—made possible by a covert CIA-drug smuggling operation at London. The bombing was retaliation for the U.S. shooting down of an Iranian Airliner killing 290 people. The tragedy was compounded by the corrupt acts of Department of Justice personnel: planting evidence to shift blame from the two groups responsible to two innocent Libyans, and Libya. The World Trade Center bombing, February 26, 1993. enabled by corrupt culture in FBI and other Department of Justice offices, including the retaliation of a reliable source inside the al Qaeda community and a female FBI agent who had provided advance information on the planned bombing; the names of the al Qaeda members working on constructing the bomb; and the Jersey City public storage site where the bomb was being constructed. The downing of TWA Flight 800, several weeks after Department of Justice personnel deep-sixth advance notice of the planned downing of a U.S. airliner departing the local New York City airport. Bombings of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. August 7, 1998. The easily preventable and forewarned hijackings of four U.S. airliners on September 11, 2001. Terrorist attacks on U.S. aircraft during the 1960s through 1980s, that were easily preventable by the "tombstone agency," as were the terrorist attacks on 9/11. Harm to individual Americans directly inflicted and enabled Catastrophic type of events enabled by the corruption and personnel and groups. 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 started, made possible by the widespread corruption Stich was reporting, the corruption-fighter filed 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. Stich then filed the lawsuit in the federal courts at Reno. Being further removed from the federal courts in California, the Reno lawsuit did not encounter the immediate dismissal. However, every request 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 occurred while the lawsuit was in progress and showed another tragedy made possible by the corruption, Judge Reed dismissed the action in violation of due process procedures. The judges in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals 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 2001—Prior to 9/11 Stich sent a certified letter to Justice Anthony Kennedy on Jan. 2, 2001, describing the serious matters. No response. That contempt for the continuing consequences added to the irresponsible conduct. However, the need to protect himself from the consequences if his prior complicity outweighed the consequences to others—as shown before the year ended. Certified letter to Supreme Court Justice William Rehnquist, January 2, 2001. The same letter was sent to the other Justices. Petition for Emergency Petition to Supreme Court Justice Sandra O'Connor, Jan. 5, 2001. raising the issues of the crime reporting responsibilities, including her responsibilities to receive the information; the added consequences in the series of terrorist successes; the criminal misuse of judicial offices by lower federal court judges; the gross attacks on the corruption-fighter through a criminal misuse of the federal courts; and the criminal acts of Department of Justice personnel and federal judges, all of which were shown by court records. Certified letter to Justice Clarence Thomas, January 15, 2001, combined with emergency petition for relief. No response. 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." Emergency Petition to Justice Clarence Thomas, Feb. 8, 2001. No response. Emergency Petition to Justice Thomas, February 15, 2001. Certified letters, April 11, 2001, sent to Chief Justice Rehnquist and each of the Justices of the Supreme Court. Most Horrific Corruption-Enabled Terrorist Successes In U.S. History: 9/11! The horrific hijackings of four U.S. airliners on September 11, 2001, 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, 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. Almost 3,000 people endured these horrific events. If the American public knew of the corruption that preceded and enabled those events, especially the corruption of personnel in the U.S. Department of Justice, the hoard of corrupt federal judges, and the complicity of the Supreme Court Justices, the reaction of any responsible public could have had devastating consequences for those people in control of the U.S. government oligarchy. Cover-up was essential—followed by even worse consequences. 9/11 Enablers There were multiple enablers of the terrorists successes that resulted in 3,000 deaths on September 11, 2001. Each group has varying levels of blame or criminality: Department of Justice personnel: They received advance notice of the series of planned al Qaeda attacks. The advance notice was obtained by a mole in the al Qaeda cell headed by al Qaeda operative Ramzi Yousef. That mole and his New York City attorney periodically provided the information to FBI-DOJ personnel in the New York City offices, and considered extremely important by local agents. Primary enablers: Specific high-level DOJ officials in Washington deep-sixthed the highly critical advance information because of a prior scheme to discredit the mole's sworn testimony concerning the murders that his Mafia capo father committed over several years with the complicity of FBI-DOJ personnel. (Similar to the FBI-DOJ personnel misconduct in the Boston FBI-DOJ offices with mobster James "Whitey" Bulger.) Secondary enablers: The culture in the Federal Aviation Administration that former FAA airline safety inspector Rodney Stich had exposed for its politics, incompetence and outright corrupt and criminal misconducts—directly related to several specific airline disasters. Were it not for the culture, such glaring red flags as easily obtained cockpit door keys would not have been available for anyone, even an off-the-street person, to have done what the al Qaeda personnel accomplished. Complicit with the primary enablers: The hoard of identifiable federal judges that repeatedly blocked the reporting of the corrupt and criminal conduct of key federal personnel; that criminally misused their positions of trust to inflict great and irreparable personal and financial harm upon Captain Rodney Stich, to halt his efforts to halt the corruption-enabled tragedies. These were deliberate criminal acts by people in positions of trust, who knew the prior consequences of cover-ups, and knew that their actions would enable even worse tragedies to occur. Other enablers, starting back to the sham California law suit, the lawyers, the California judges; the members of Congress, media personnel and media corp0ortations that covered up for the ongoing corrupt and criminal activities. 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. 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. Both of those two world record related airline disasters in New York City involved Captain Rodney Stich exposing their enabling corruption. In the second series of aviation disasters in New York City on September 11, 2001, Captain Stich reported the enabling corruption-criminal activities before the consequences occurred. Post-9/11 Judicial Cover-Up in DC Courts Captain Stich sought to report the corruption that enabled the 9/11 hijackings by submitting an federal action to the federal court in Washington, DC, on April 22, 2002. That action was submitted under the federal crime reporting statute, Title 18 U.S.C. § 4, that required anyone knowing of a federal crime to report it to a federal judge or other federal official (including Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court), and requiring them to receive the information. It addressed the serious federal offense in the personnel in control of the U.S. Department of Justice, the decades of 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 only stamped "received." District Judge Coleen Kollar-Kotelly then issued an order, July 1, 2002, that blocked filing the petition and even denying him the right to appeal the illegal act. Stich sent a letter to 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. He then 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. It was Stanley Sporkin who, a confidential document of a covert CIA operation based in Honolulu (BBRDW), showed having a secret CIA bank account funded by the Central Intelligence Agency. 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 a May 15, 2003, order refusing to hear the matter, signed by court of appeal judges Edwards, Sentelle, Henderson, Randolph, Rogers, Tatel, and Garland. That refusal enabled the culture of corruption-criminality to continue. Post-9/11 Judicial Cover-Up in New York City Courts 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, dated August 8, 2002. The judicial obstruction of justice continued. Even though the filing met the guidelines and the filing fee was enclosed, the requirement to file it was violated (along with the obstruction of justice results). The stamped as "received" (August 8, 2002). Chief Judge Michael Mukasey refused to allow it to be filed. This continued the judicial corruption that was unprecedented in any modern industrial nation! As well as the consequences! Reported the Judicial Obstruction of Justice To All Supreme Court Justices After nearly a year of attempting to get the case filed, Stich sent a February 6, 2003, letter to Chief Justice William Rehnquist, and each of the other Supreme Court Justices. The letters advised the Supreme Court Justices of the latest judicial obstruction of justice that was occurring in areas for which they had supervising responsibilities. Endless Judicial Deception—with Supreme Court Justices' Complicity Thirteen months after that explosive document should have been filed, and seven months after the Supreme Court Justices were notified, Chief Judge Michael Mukasey then allowed the filing to occur, on September 22, 2003. After those letters were sent, he was apparently secretly ordered by the Supreme Court Justices to file the action. The Justices surely knew, or instructed, what happened next. Immediately upon Judge Mukasey allowed the action to be filed—he simultaneously filed an order, September 22, 2003, dismissing the action. That tactic continued the years of impeachable offenses by federal judges, making possible what than followed. Notice of Appeal to Court of Appeals in New York City— The Site of Two World-Record Aviation Disasters: 40 Years Apart Captain Rodney Stich filed a Notice of Appeal, Oct. 14, 2003, of the unlawful dismissal by Chief Judge Michael Mukasey. Under federal court procedural rules, Stich filed an Appeal Brief on January 3, 2004. Department of Justice personnel were then required to file their brief. When they failed to do that, probably wondering what to do next, Stich filed a Declaration of Filing Irregularities, Feb. 23, 2004. Department of Justice personnel then filed a motion to dismiss the action—in which they played a major enabling role to the criminal acts stated therein. Stich then filed his Reply Brief, Feb. 29, 2004, to their filing. DOJ response was to file a motion to dismiss. In response to the DOJ motion to dismiss, Stich filed an Objection to Dismissal, June 3, 2004. The court of appeals issued instructions for the parties to give oral arguments in the federal courts in New York City. The Oral Argument occurred on August 24, 2004. Continuing the same tactics started in the 1970s, the three appeal judges dismissed the attempt to provide evidence relating to the corrupt and criminal enabling misconduct that made the easily prevented and forewarned hijackings of four airline aircraft possible. Stich filed a Petition for Rehearing on September 7, 2004, en banc, before all the appellate judges. Every federal appellate judges in New York City than denied the appeal, increasing the complicity in the federal judicial system. Summation of legal actions from New York City filings: www.defraudingamerica.com/lawsuit_nyc_index.html. Another Cover-Up by Supreme Court Justices Stich submitted for filing to the U.S. Supreme Court Justices petition for writ of certiorari and writ of mandamus. January 5, 2005, petition for writ of certiorari to U.S. Supreme Court. The introductory "Questions Presented" section of that brief stated: QUESTIONS PRESENTED 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. 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.  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. ------------------------------- Putting Perpetrators in Key Gateway Positions: Standard Practice in U.S. Government Oligarchy Chief Judge Michael Mukasey was later promoted to U.S. Attorney General of the United States, a standard promotion reaction for those who protect the corruption in the system. That was also done with Sacramento federal prosecutor David Levi, who was promoted to U.S. District Judge at Sacramento (Levi charged Captain Stich with criminal contempt of court that led to six months in federal prison—while the consequences of the reported corruption-criminality were ongoing). Las Vegas bankruptcy Judge Robert Jones, who had corruptly seized Stich's life assets, was promoted to federal district judge at Reno. Similar promotions were given to the FAA personnel that attacked Stich during his assignment to halt the corruption that was enabling a series of horrific aviation disasters. 9/11 Commission Cover-Ups Enabled By Embedded Department of Justice Personnel 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 al Qaeda attacks, the primary and direct enablers of the hijackings, deaths, and what would follow. Their conduct also protected other 9/11 enablers, insuring that they would continue the secrecy. 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 invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, neither of whom know 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 a terrorist haven after the invasion). The horrific killing of innocent people with the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq outraged people throughout the Middle East and Africa, and caused the small band of al Qaeda members to the greatest number of people in world history wanting to kill Americans and die in the process. The al Qaeda group expanded throughout the Middle East and Africa, and new groups formed, more barbaric, including the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), Boko Haram, Al-Shabaab, and others, bringing entire regions under its control. 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 to and from the federal courts are self-revealing. The close relationship between the reported corrupt conduct and the harm resulting from it, covering the period from 1960 to 2014. 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." The unprecedented personal letter to Captain Rodney Stich by highly respected Supreme Court Justice Byron White, in response to a 60-page Emergency Petition that addressed these serious matters. Hi short but revealing statement stated that—as a single justice—he could not help. 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. But in the United States, Stich enemies—and these of the American public—cowardly and criminally hid behind their position of trust, subverting the laws and constitution of the United States, spreading their corruption throughout the nation, with continual catastrophic consequences. 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 appears hopeless. All further articles are for the purpose of showing how the "American people made possible most of the tragedies that occurred. Documentaries in Not-for-Profits Books Based on Personal Discoveries of Several Dozen Insiders: CIA, FBI, DEA, And Others Over a dozen highly detailed and documented books, detailing the discoveries of several dozen people exposed to the criminal activities. These are heavily details books written by corruption fighter, Captain Rodney Stich, backed by decades of credibility. They provide the material for a peaceful "Arab Spring" outrage among courageous Americans. (These books are available in print and digital format at www.amazon.com; www.google.com; and other web sites. At each site, put "Rodney Stich" into the search box for a list of these books. All of the books are available at amazon.com, in print and on digital formats, and at many other Internet sites. They bring together the various pieces of the puzzle to better understand the overall picture, and why the same conditions continue year after year.

Similarities Between Germans under Adolf Hitler And Today's Americans A poem written by Martin Niemoller, relating to how Germans tolerate Adolf Hitler is especially suitable to most Americans today: First they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Jew. Then they came for the Communists, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Communist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out, because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak out for me. Pastor Martin Niemöller Pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) first supported the rise of Adolf Hitler, and then upon learning the truth, and objecting, he was imprisoned. He wrote a poem about the state of denial of Germans about what Hitler was doing. Probably no better example could be shown than what has been done to the American people, in their name, while they ignored the outrages. The first step is to become informed. And with the vast cover-ups, disinformation, and blatant lying by U.S. politicians, media personnel, and political pundits, this requires a little effort. In searching for information, don't be misled by wild conspiracy theories, and go where facts can be found, including courageous (and foolish) insiders who speak out in defense of the country. Sadly, fewer people read such books (preferring trivia reading), rarely read newspapers (which is one small step to becoming informed). Therefore, the future is bleak, made possible by the corruption detailed here and in the books, the cover-ups, and the public's indifference to their responsibilities.
