Exposing corruption regardless of the cost

A single mother’s fight for justice, amongst so many government criminals

My constitutional law school professor Prygoski said to me just before graduation “I have high expectations for you. You’re going to instigate change!”   Well he was right, but it wasn’t my intent when this single mother made a conscious decision to become a lawyer.  I chose the profession of law after watching my mother – a person who I loved without condition – die from the treatable disease of breast cancer.

I often get emails saying “why are you so angry?” I take notice to these types of emails, or as my mother said  “look in the mirror before you judge others” as a way to self-reflect or make myself a better person.

I am not angry, I am disgusted with government officials who spit on the civil rights of the taxpayers they were sworn in to protect. They are making criminals out of non-criminals and we must expose it at all cost.

Other emails letters say “what makes you tick?”  I am now going to answer this question for my readers.

March 16, 1995, was not a happy birthday for me, waking up to news that my mother had passed after struggling with breast cancer for three years.  She died at approximately the same time I was born, on the same day of the week (Friday), on the same day (March 16th).  It was the saddest day of my life having to say good bye to one of only two people who did so much for me, but asked for very little in return.

After watching my mother struggle with breast cancer for over three years,  a treatable disease such as breast cancer, I began a long journey to use my voice to help others. This is the main reason why I decided on the practice of law. Looking back on this decision today, it was one of the best decisions I ever made. The education and training I received in law school is like nothing I ever experienced before, and I wouldn’t trade it for any other life time experience.

At age of 24, after watching my mother struggle with breast cancer, and while working as a machinist, I entered my first year of undergraduate studies. As a female working in a man’s World, I made a decent living, owned my house, vacationed often, and nurtured my daughter into the fine person she is today.

By age twenty six, I fractured my spinal cord at work. It took me almost a year to walk again without a strained gait, while at the same time my lawyers were telling me that I needed a new profession. Not sure what I really wanted to do, I took a few classes, starting with American government and criminal law.

I am the youngest of six children born and raised in Massachusetts. My mother was a stay at home Mom for most of my younger years, and my father was A World II veteran later turned postal employee. I lived in a middle class Catholic neighborhood and was forced to attend Sunday school. Some of  my siblings went to Catholic schools while I chose public schools.

There were many aspects of the participating in Catholic functions that I enjoyed, none of which included watching white men tell me what the Bible said or meant. The same white men I would later read and study about in my Criminal Procedure class, real stellar members of our community. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_R._Lavigne).

Priests were always men, and women were always expected to take the back seat in this so called place of worship.  As a result of Catholicism’s disrespect for women’s rights (and later gay rights), it was not a place that I personally saw any value in attending, thus I stopped attending around the age of 12.

My decision to discharge religion had everything to do with science. However, that’s not to say that I do not view the Bible as a great piece of literature that is. It did have some good points, including feeding the homeless and cheering up the elderly inside nursing homes. However, the disparity perpetrated upon women over men was something that I just could not accept. As I still do not today, but it’s not the reason why I am stanch Atheist and lover of science today. I am an Atheist today because after weighing the evidence, as any good lawyer would do before deciding to accept or decline a case, I see no evidence to support a higher sprit.

As we learned in law school, if the crimes don’t fit the statute, you cannot charge, unless of course you live in Washington State where the criminals are running thus ruining our political system.

For me, religion serves neither a governmental purpose nor any value to our society. I studied many religions while in undergraduate studies at Massachusetts State University, and I see them as philosophy. Religion for me equates to hate, violence, wars, murder, rape, and where pedophiles hide. But I never use all inclusive statements because from time to time, I find honest and respectful people inside religious institutions, such as Washington Coalition for Open Government President Toby Nixon, a man I admire as the only politician I ever met that I trust 100 % ; and my best friend Sherry. Both are Mormons.

My disdain for religion comes from the Catholic Church. As a child that grew up with a pedophile priest named Richard Lavigne at the pulpit, I watched as Lavigne raped and murdered a 13 year boy named Danny. Crimes that he was never charged with thanks to a corrupt deceased Hamden County District Attorney, Mathew J Ryan, whose allegiance to the Catholic Church meant more to him than his duty to uphold the law. He covered up the murder, and Richard Lavigne remains on the loose.

I despise pedophiles more than I do rapists. The difference is simple: rapists rape adults who have half a chance of defending themselves, while pedophiles intentionally pick on children because they cannot. I consider pedophiles to be the scum of the earth and not worth housing. However, trained in criminal defense, I understand that people are innocent until proven guilty, and that because of corruption, many who are convicted or charged are not guilty of anything except for overzealous prosecutors who simply want to make a name for themselves.  In cases where prosecuritoal misconduct can be proven, I believe the sentence should be life in prison For the prosecutor. Lawyers actions that undermine our judicial system is more dangerous to a free society than allowing a murderer to go free.

After learning that my mother was dying of breast cancer, in 1992, I was living Dallas kind of lost in life engaged to a religious nut job who happens to be a CPA.  The religious differences, I a stanch non-believer and he a Baptist, brought on more fighting (not physical) because of politics and religion then I care to share in this blog. My mother’s cancer was simply an excuse to break off my engagement and head back to Massachusetts to help care for my mother in her last years of life. I will say that it was because of Dennis that I know what love is not, and it’s because of Noel I know what love is.

Immediately after my mother’s death (1995), I started researching my mother’s medical files and noted that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer seven years earlier. Unfortunately for my mother, the doctors ignored her mammograms. Instead of suing, I remember saying “there’s something fundamentally wrong with our system if a doctor ignores a patient’s medical report.”

For some odd reason, I thought by becoming a lawyer, I could actually help ease human pain and suffering, something that I could not do for my mother. However, after years of practicing, watching Snohomish County public officials, mainly prosecutors, commit felonies such as tampering with public records, violating citizens’ civil rights, making non-criminals into criminals by using Our Courts to trump up criminal charges on honest hard -working citizens, filing phony Bar complaints against my license for simply attempting to address the Prosecutors and government officers crimes, and conspiring to harm citizens who ask questions of their government officers (while hiding behind government offices) with the assistance of Washington State Bar Office of Disciplinary Counsel members Linda Eide, and Lin O’Dell, and Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay and Margaret King , I resigned from the Washington State Bar citing massive corruption.

After my six year investigation as a trained legal professional, I see no distinction between the criminals inside our prisons and the prosecutors. Our entire judicial systems has failed “we the people” , making honest citizens into criminals, and only after researching and investigating corrupt members inside the Washington State Bar Office of Disciplinary Council members steal and deplete elderly clients trust accounts with the assistance of Washington State Bar’s Chief Hearing Officer Joseph Nappi Jr. and members inside the Washington State Bar Office of Disciplinary Council. Again, my six year investigation leaves to believe that there’s no difference between the criminals inside the prisons and those inside many government offices.

I was brought into this World an activist, and shall die an activist. I have only one God and her name is “justice.” I treasure the Constitution as the greatest gift Thomas Jefferson gave America. The First Amendment allows citizens to investigate and report on corruption without government interference.

I close this blog entry with a quote from one of My childhood heroes “ the fight for justice against corruption is never easy. It never has been and it never will be. It exacts a toll on our self, our families, our friends, and especially our children. In the end, I believe, as in my case, the price we pay is well worth holding onto our dignity.” Frank Serpico, a great American.

My bible is the U.S. Constitution ( I do not include Washington State’s Constitution because those in charge have damaged it beyond repair). I intend to tell my story to a jury soon.

Reiter Foothills squandering our public resources for a small few? 

  

A local Gold Bar resident and I do not see eye to eye on the issue of off- road vehicles (ORV) usefulness in rural communities. However, he and I do see eye to eye on the issue of misusing taxpayer resources. 

We’re looking into how much public money Federal Way resident and Reiter Foothills developer Ted Jackson has been given by Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to develop Reiter Foothills for ORV use here in Gold Bar, and are taxpayer monies being used for the majority, not for a minority few.

Deciding to take on this local issue because of my support and love for ORVs wasn’t on my agenda until my partner said ” Reiter Foothills new trails are virtually unused while Wallace Falls State Park’s visitors are left parking on local roads because of overflow parking issues. Instead of making a new overflow parking lot for Wallace Falls, DNR conservation dollars are being misused used for a small few to use Reiter Foothills for ORV use.  The real attraction in Gold Bar is Wallace Falls State Park that has a major weekend parking issue. ” 

We’re researching how much money has been allocated by DNR to develop Reiter Foothills and where the money is coming from.

“Not for ourselves alone”

My America is not about You or Me, it’s about  “We the people.”   When we lose sight of our values, by placing profits over people, Americans suffer.  America suffers. When we place profits over doing what’s right,  America becomes the land of  ” Ye the few.”

Being a good American is not about winning a football game.  It’s not about lining your pockets with gold.  It’s not about getting even. It’s about righting a wrong, moving forward, not backwards, and most of all it’s about making sure our next generation of children cherish the values that  Our founding fathers and mothers fought so hard to achieve, while asking for little in return.

Being a good American has no price tag. I will spare no dollar to right a wrong when I see it.  I never have nor ever will value a dollar bill more than the Constitution.

I thank Thomas Jefferson everyday for writing the First Amendment.  It’s the only single document that separates America from the rest of the World. Without it, America would be another Saudi Arabia.

Justice is a verb that mandates activism. It’s activists who demand change, accept nothing less.

I am proud to be an American female, and thankful for those people who stand firmly behind the Constitutional principles I love more than life itself.  I have but one life to give and It shall be for the betterment of my society as a whole.  We are not here for ourselves alone.

We must do everything we can to expose corruption regardless of the cost.  I never lose hope that a wrong can be corrected, nor do I lose hope in seeing justice served to those who harm.

“To find yourself, think for yourself.’ Socrates, my favorite professor.

With no surprise, U.S. Supreme Court rules in favor of 1st Amendment

The Supreme Court made it a little harder Monday to prosecute people for making threatening statements, this time on Facebook.

The Court’s decision reversed the conviction of a Pennsylvania man whose Facebook postings seemed threatening to his estranged wife. The court said prosecutors must prove beyond any doubt that poster was aware that he was doing something wrong.

“Federal criminal liability generally does not turn solely on the results of an act without considering the defendant’s mental state,” Chief Justice John Roberts Jr. wrote. “Wrongdoing must be conscious to be criminal.”

The court’s ruling is a victory not only for Anthony Douglas Elonis, but for all of us who use the internet to get our message out.

Steven R. Shapiro, national legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union, praised the decision as one that “properly recognizes that the law has for centuries required the government to prove criminal intent before putting someone in jail.”

“That principle is especially important when a prosecution is based on a defendant’s words,” Shapiro said in a statement. “The Internet does not change this long-standing rule.”

Elonis was charged with making aggressive Facebook postings, which police said were threats.  Elonis wrote, “There’s one way to love you but a thousand ways to kill you,” Elonis posted at one point. “I’m not going to rest until your body is a mess, soaked in blood and dying from all the little cuts.”

When his wife secured a protection Protection Order from a state judge, Elonis went on Facebook to declare, “Fold up your PFA and put it in your pocket. Is it thick enough to stop a bullet?”

Elonis characterized his postings as “fictitious lyrics” and likened himself to Eminem and other rappers for whom “art is about pushing limits.” Elonis argued that the jury should have been required to find that he intended his posts to be threats.

The trial judge disagreed, and Elonis was convicted on four counts of making threatening communications and sentenced to 44 months in prison. He was freed last year.
Justice Roberts noted that Elonis’ conviction was “premised solely on how his posts would be understood by a reasonable person.” Roberts said that while the ” ‘reasonable person’ standard was a familiar feature of civil liability in tort law,” it “is inconsistent with the conventional requirement for criminal conduct, awareness of some wrongdoing.”

Roberts concluded, Congress, in writing the law about communicating threats,”did not identify what mental state” must be proved for conviction.

Bravo to the U.S. Supreme Court for standing firm on First Amendment issues, again.

Washington State Bar Office of Disciplinary Counsel sued again under RICO, JURY DEMANDED

Washington State Bar Office of Disciplinary Counsel and those associated with the Office sued again under RICO.  I believe this makes # 4 this year for Our stellar employees operating inside the WA State Bar Office of Disciplinary Counsel and it’s Boards. 

Corrupt Washington’s Chief Activist, and honorable citizen here in Washington, Bill Schiedler filed suit against the Washington State Bar citing gross RICO violations. Over the last year, the Washington State Bar Association has been sued at least five times that we know of, and at least four suits involving Racketeering allegations.

My mother always said ” if it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, its probably a duck.”   We tried on at least five occasions to obtain comment from the Washington State Bar Association with no response. However, if someone from the Washington State Bar Association does respond, we will post their comments without censorship.

Until then, we say, silence implies guilt and Mr. Schiedler has exposed yet another pattern of conduct that is unbecoming of any organization.  From our year long investigation of the the Washington State Bar we feel comfortable calling the Washington State Bar a criminal organization, or as correctly posted in March 2015, ” a few small members are making criminals out of non-criminals and we do everything in our power to peacefully stop these RICO gang members regardless of the cost.”

Bill Schiedler alleges :  As members of the Washington State Bar Association, they become liable for its wrongdoing, and therefore are indirect defendants in the cases. The Ninth Circuit has already ruled in Marshall v. WSBA, Pope v. WSBA, and Scannell v. WSBA, that this conflict requires disqualification.

The racketeering enterprise, within the meaning of 18 U.S.C. Section 1961, is an association called the WA State Bar Association [Bar or WSBA]. The Bar is “indistinguishable” and for all practical purposes has commandeered WA State’s judicial branch;

The Bar has a distinct structure based on the essential functions of decision-making, regulation, lobbying, rule making, discipline, finance, advertising;has employed numerous employees in order to discharge the functions noted above.

c. has recorded fraudulent documents and promulgated rules and regulations to organize the enterprise and insure its continued operation under the color of law.requires its associates to invest in the enterprise by mandatory fees and adherence to their directives. the COMMON PURPOSE of the enterprise is (1) to defraud; and (2) to extort citizens of their money, rights, and property by having associates of the enterprise occupy government positions, including on WA State and Federal Courts, and by having “plenary” powers over all its associates to extort their required performance and the required investment back into the enterprise thru dues and performance.

The Bar, by its Rules for Enforcement of Lawyer Conduct 1.2, reaches to every part of the country to influence the “customs and practices” of legal services provided. “Disciplinary authority exists regardless of the lawyer’s residency or authority to practice law in this state. A lawyer may be subject to the disciplinary authority of both this jurisdiction and another jurisdiction for the same conduct.” Additionally, the Bar, in breach of its fiduciary duty owed to the public, operates in the insurance markets by “case fixing” to influence insurance rates and premiums for itself, its members and its clients. This has a ripple effect throughout the financial industry across the United States.

I must admit when I first saw the first paragraph of  Mr. Schiedler complaint, I said ” wow, he’s onto to something here with affecting interstate commerce with their RICO activities.”   For those of you who did not got to law school, it appears as though Bill Schiedler is arguing that the WA State Bar is guilty of violating interstate commerce by its RICO activities.

RICO complaints are criminal in nature.

The modus operandi by which “case fixing” is accomplished is in the broad policy of the Bar’s disciplinary board to “ignore” lawyers’ obligations to “truth and honor” and “never seek to mislead a judge or jury”. Said another way, “case fixing” is simply giving the judge or jury the opportunity to believe in a lie. This “failure to hold lawyers” to the law RCW 48.210 – has created the means and opportunity for lawyers to achieve “unjust outcomes” that would not occur if lawyers were held to the law as the WSBA is tasked to do.

Yes indeed,  Bill Schiedler is right on the issue of Washington State Bar Office of Disciplinary Counsel “fixing” cases.  Late last year, the WA State Bar provided public records involving Chief Hearing Officer Joseph Nappi Jr sending an email letter to David Thorner ( Yakima) asking him to show other WA Bar Hearing Officers how to fix cases before trial. All this was done at an in person secret meeting inside Joseph Nappi Jr.’s law office located in Spokane Washington at the Law Office of Ewing & Anderson.

In addtion, late last year Gold Bar Reporter Anne Block discovered via public records that Duvall Washington residents Crystal Hill Pennington and John E Pennington set up a post  office box with a Washington State Hearing a officer Lin O’ Dell and her convicted killer boyfriend Mark Plivilech for the purpose of  bribing$$ Spokane attorney Lin O’Dell to fix a complaint Crystal Hill Pennington and John E Pennington filed against Block attempting to SLAPP down the Gold Bar Reporters first amendment protected activity “free speech” message and statutory rights under RCW 42.56.

Attorney Lin O’ Dell and John and Crystal ( née Berg, and Hill) Pennington are being sued under RICo as well. John E. Pennington was fired from Snohomish County in March 2015 after his emails released documented that John Pennington was using a man named Steve to stalk Gold Bar Reporter Anne Block. A source stated that John Pennington fled the State of  Washington in early April 2015, but the sociopath was recently seen in Shoreline District Court. 

Bill also mentions a new comer to us who recently learned that Seattle law firm, The Christie Law Group, whose founder, Robert Christie — admitted to membership in the Federation of Defense & Corporate Counsel and chaired the substantive law section on Civil Rights and Public Entity Liability, responsible for authoring periodic

  • newsletters to section members and substantive articles for the FDCC In August
  • 2013 he was elected as one of nine directors to the He has served as an instructor
  • at the FDCC’s Litigation Management College — markets its services as “Court Rule 56”

What does this mean … within the context that the legal profession is nothing but a “a private club” that is unaccountable for its conduct – a consequence in the breakdown inherent in self-regulation – these “rules, newsletters, strategies, tactics, customs and practices” which Robert Christie demands others hold in “high praise” are only judged by Scheidler’s RICO Statement.  Case 3:12-cv-05996-RBL Document 58-11 Filed 05/18/15 Page 5 of 34

1 themselves – Society is EXCLUDED from this club and how the tactics Christie espouses
2 harms society. There is NO independent basis to conclude anything Christie and the FDCC devise merit acceptancy by society. This lobbying outfit FDCC describes itself by its members, who are:

(1) practicing lawyers actively engaged in the private practice of law who devote a substantial amount of their professional time to the representation of insurance companies, associations or other corporations, or others, in the defense of civil litigation and have been a member of the bar for at least eight years; or (2) corporate counsel and other executives engaged in the administration or defense of claims or for insurance companies, associations, or corporations who have national, regional or company-wide responsibility for a company of greater than local significance.

In contrast to the touted success of Christie, there are about 3000 grievances filed against lawyers with the WA State Bar every year claiming Lawyers are in breach of their rules and the law. These grievances are dismissed as routine. 

The “nexus” between “court rules and case fixing and the Bar Disciplinary scheme” is evident in the numbers and the advertising alone.  It doesn’t hurt that Chief WA State Bar hearing officer Joseph Nappi Jr. Stated it in his public emails. “Stupid it is as stupid does” 

Another RICO suit against the Washington State Bar will be filed on June 14, 2015, as Flag Day represents honoring our Country’ s absolute right to “free speech” and “freedom of the press”  without government nor private party interfereence with no exceptions. 

Block claims that her next next RICO will will be an all star performance with a pedophile, a corrupt police from Duvall Washington, a WA State Bar Hearing Officer who is accepting bribes to fix cases by using her convicted killer boyfriend to threaten people and retrieve any pay offs from so called WA Bar grievants,  and a Gold Bar Washington Mayor Linda Loen.
