Romney Racketeering Lawsuit - Officially Docketed


It is "Official" Now - HAAS v ROMNEY is Docketed.

See Clocked Copy of Complaint pt1 (here) pt 2 (here)

- Summons (here) - and Court Disinterest (here).

All the naysays (and worse) kept saying it wouldn't even make it this far. Be that as it may, as of this day, October 24, 2013; Haas v Romney Federal Court case in Central District Los Angeles for "CIVIL" Racketeering - is NOW "Official".
However - Please be made aware;

- - - To date, there's been very little legitimacy - if any whatsoever - concerning our eToys debacle and SEC/ bankruptcy estate frauds. Because there ARE issues of unquestionable federal corruption involved, it would not be a surprise if the bad faith federal venality beast continued its efforts in tyranny, cronyism and corruption. There's already documented issues of mayhem, suicides and worse tied to this case. Can't put nothing past these guys.

Be that as it may - I'm trusting in our system of justice.

The powers that be may come to bear upon the case and nit pick reasons arise that force yours truly to Amend the Complaint (1st Amended Complaint is already being drafted). Be that as it may, I'm jumping for Joy (and though she is taken) I'm kissing trees, doing skinny dips in the pool tonight and watcching You(red)Tube remakes of Behind the Green Door.

- - - - - I know - I'm a bahd boy!


Robert Reich explains how Bain Capital operates.

This is just to loosen everyone up a bit. Our beloved public servant Robert Reich tries to explain in 8 easy YouTube pic/video steps - how it is that Romney's Bain Capital works. Please take a look at Mr. Reich's simplification of the issues; and then yours truly will explain the current case at hand below!


Explaining our Racketeering Romney & Gang case in a nutshell

First of all - let me explain The PLAYERS.

  1. Mitt Romney = Bain Capital, The Learning Company, Stage Stores, Kay Bee and eToys
  2. The MNAT law firm = Romney/ Bain, Learning, Kay Bee and eToys
  3. Michael Glazer was CEO of Kay Bee and Director (now CEO) of Stage STores
  4. Barry Gold was Glazer's Director's assistant at Stage Stores
  5. Paul Traub's TBF law firm was hired at Stage by Barry Gold
  6. MNAT also = Goldman Sachs
  7. In re Cosmetics Plus = Goldman Sachs
  8. Paul Traub and Barry Gold worked for Cosmetics Plus
  9. Kay Bee Toys also employed Paul Traub and Barry Gold
  10. Michael Glazer paid himself $18 million/ Bain $83 million & then filed bankruptcy of Kay Bee
  11. MNAT represents Kay Bee in the $83 million
  12. Paul Traub asked to be the one to prosecute Bain and Glazer.

HENCE - Romney, Bain, Goldman Sachs, MNAT, Barry Gold, Glazer, Kay Bee, Paul Traub are all equal to each other. They are CONNECTED parties - required by LAW to disclose their connections (potential conflicts of interest) to all creditors, shareholders and the Courts. - They are what is known in the 3rd Circuit Court (pre In re Arkansas case) as a "Bankruptcy Ring". And in Civil Racketeering this group/GANG is also known as an "Association in Fact".

Because no organized crime syndicate names a Corporation an obvious "Crooks Inc".



We Have CONFESSIONS -Culpability is Not in Doubt; Accountability is the Issue at Hand

There's NO reasonable doubt - whatsoever - about the guilt of Paul Traub, Barry Gold and the MNAT law firms. These parties have already CONFESSED to supplication of more than 33 erroneous Affidavits to the Chief Federal Justice over the eToys bankruptcy case.

They're GUILTY of Perjury & Fraud; but have not been "properly" held accountable!

What you have to remember is - Mitt Romney WAS the CEO of Bain Capital when these crime sprees began; and everyone believed he would become President of the United States. Thus - many federal agents and judges (either scared for their jobs or with hopes of MUCH greater future rewards) - simply became willfully blind to the organized crimes.

BACKGROUND of Confessions December 22, 2004 to March 1, 2005

December 22, 2004, there was an Emergency Hearing in eToys about Perjury & Fraud issues. The DE Bankruptcy Court ordered the parties to respond before January 25, 2005 (the Responses). Being that we had SMOKING GUN evidences irrefutable; the bad faith parties simply admitted they lied under oath. But they said it was really no big deal.

Wonder what Martha Stewart has to say about 6 months in jail; being no big deal!

Then, once the bad faith parties confessed in writing to the Court; they were ordered to allow myself and the eToys shareholders to DEPOSE the parties (MNAT, Paul Traub, his partner's Michael Fox and Barry Gold) - at the Wilmington, DE federal courthouse (because there were death threats and my daughter had been abducted already).

More Confessions Came to Light on February 9, 2005 Depositions (here) & (here) & (here). A few days later the United States Trustee reacted to the Confessions and proffered its Motion to Disgorge Traub Bonacquist & Fox for $1.6 million on February 15, 2005 (DE Bankruptcy eToys case 01-706 "Disgorge Motion" - {here}).

On March 1, 2005, during an Evidence Hearing, Paul Traub was questioned by the Delaware Bankruptcy Court Chief Justice (Mary F Walrath) about his role in the failure to disclose the conflicts of interest of being tied to Barry Gold (eToys President/CEO). Traub confessed that his TBF firm paid Barry Gold four (4) payments of $30,000 each from January 2001 to May 2001 (see Transcript pages 60 through 69 of the March 1, 2005 hearing in eToys - {HERE}).

Bain Capital stole Kay Bee and eToys company & bankruptcy estates.

It is real simple. MNAT lied to become the eToys attorney, Paul Traub lied to become eToys Creditors attorney; and then they illegally put in Barry Gold and threw out yours truly (because I wouldn't take the bribe to become partners with the very important person (at that time looking to be Governor of Mass. - Mitt (the PITT's) Romney).

All of them are connected to Bain Capital. that has benefited from FRAUD!

Then MNAT, Barry Gold and Paul Traub, "P R E T E N D I N G" to be opponents of each other - Sold OUT their court approved clients (eToys, shareholders and creditors) for their SECRET clients of Goldman Sachs, Bain Capital and RMoney.

This is Bankruptcy Fraud


-----Bankruptcy Fraud is made by Congress to be a part of RICO (Racketeering).

- They even lied many times this year (figuring they've done 100 crimes - why the heck worry about doing 112). It is the hope of Racketeering Romney's GANG - that they will be able to use their power, money, might and the fact of federal corruption embarrassments - to get away totally "Scot Free"!

We'll SEE!

-- -Mitt, I'm not sorry to say - I've got you by the proverbial's boy.

YOUR SO BAIN - and that's going to be your Undoing PAIN!

Add all of those stories noted in the prior paragraph to the September 2012 Rolling Stone cover story by Matt Taibbi titled; "Greed and Debt: A True Story About Romney & Bain" and then you have about 1/3 of all the stuff that is going on in our cases.

PoliticusUSA.com Rmuse Reports on Racketeering Romney Lawsuit

PoliticusUSA.com - once again - dares to go where main stream media cares not to be. Politicus reporter Rmuse is an activist like Matt Taibbi. Except Rmuse fights bad faith Repub's like Taibbi fights bad faith Wall Street. Late last night, Rmuse wrote a piece that I asked him not to do. If you make it about Haas v Romney only - Mitt might win. But Rmuse insisted on making his article about yours truly fighting Romney in his article titled; "One of His Victims Files a Civil Racketeering RICO Complaint Against Mitt Romney".

pic by Rmuse in Bankruptcy Gang article

In his article, Rmuse discusses the issue of yours truly seeking to be a "Private Attorney General" as is a Civil Right guaranteed by Congress and affirmed by the U.S. Supreme Court. In a previous article, Rmuse details the fact that Romney's RICO Gang is a "Bankruptcy Ring". Romney is getting away with his crimes because he actually OWNED a United States Attorney who refused to investigate and/or prosecute him (see below).

Here's some of what Rmuse has to say in his story;

One victim, [is] taking the law into his own hands means becoming a “private attorney general” and using the justice system in his 13-year battle against very rich and powerful adversaries with influence in high places.

Last Friday in California, a victim, Stephen “Laser” Haas, who has been denied justice for over a decade took the law into his own hands and filed a “Civil Racketeering” RICO complaint against Willard Romney, Bain Capital, Goldman Sachs, and various co-conspirators. Mr. Haas filed his complaint in California because a Delaware Bankruptcy Court deliberately held up a filing that named Romney in late October 2012, and later ruled in December that Haas was permanently barred from seeking justice in her federal court by issuing an order stating the court clerk is forbidden from accepting any of his filings in the eToys bankruptcy case.

By filing a Civil Racketeering complaint, Haas (the plaintiff) is allowed by law to become a “Private Attorney General” to address issues of “Prosecutorial Gaps” that exist in the eToys bankruptcy case.


What the Racketeering Case is About;

As some of you may already be aware, yours truly sued Goldman Sachs, Bain Capital and Mitt Romney last Friday in Los Angeles Federal Court (see my Press Release - here). It was first placed on LBN and was getting tremendous response; but was locked out as it was me reporting on me (see LBN thread "Romney Sued for RICO in Fed Court&quot

What is at issue is the fact that Goldman Sachs and Bain Capital partnered up to do federal frauds over eToys.com and other cases. It was easy to do, as the Morris Nichols Arsht & Tunnel ("MNAT&quot law firm worked for both Goldman Sachs and Bain Capital. All MNAT needed to do was lie to the Delaware Bankruptcy Court and become approved as eToys attorney in the bankruptcy case. Then, once that ruse was successful, MNAT partnered up with eToys Creditors Attorney (Paul Traub) - who also worked for Goldman Sachs and Bain Capital.

Romney Owns a Corrupt United States Attorney

To make sure they get away totally 'Scot Free', the crooks arranged for one of the MNAT law firm partners (Colm Connolly) to become the United States Attorney in Delaware. Colm Connolly happens to have been a partner of MNAT during the very same EXACT time that Romney claims to have been "retroactively" retired from Bain as CEO.

Connolly was an MNAT/Romney/Bain partner from 1999 to August 2001 (see DOJ resume - here).

- - As is obvious to those who followed the election, Mitt Romney seeks to be "retroactively" retired as Bain Capital CEO from August 2001; back to February 11, 1999. Not only is the around the same exact period of time that Colm Connolly was a MNAT (Bain) law firm partner. It is also when the Racketeering of The Learning Company, Stage Stores, Kay Bee and eToys case began.


For more background see DU threads LBN (here) and GD (here) - and DailyKos (here) which - by the way - received ten thousand (10,000) Facebook LIKES.

You can also see my website "DOJ_Cover_UP". Plus the Wall Street Journal story "eToys investors claims conflict at law firm" and the New York Times March 2013 OpEd article about Goldman Sachs fraud in eToys titled; "Rigging the I.P.O. Game".

Add all of those stories noted in the prior paragraph to the September 2012 Rolling Stone cover story by Matt Taibbi titled; "Greed and Debt: A True Story About Romney & Bain" and then you have about 1/3 of all the stuff that is going on in our cases.

At the end of the day, it may be, that Romney & his RICO Gang are just Too Big to Fail and Too Big To Jail. Therefore, they may get away with it all 'Scot Free'. But it won't be because of my lack of trying.

All we can do is hope & pray the corruption doesn't reach the California federal court.

If this case goes to trial process - Romney's RICO Gang will LOSE!

Goldman Sachs, Bain Capital & Mitt Romney Sued for Racketeering By ME!

Lawsuit Filed in Los Angeles Federal Court Oct. 18 at 3:47 pm.

As reported late Friday night in DU LBN (here), yours truly sued Goldman Sachs, Bain Capital, Mitt Romney and his Gang (Paul Traub, Barry Gold, MNAT law firm, Colm Connolly and Michael Glazer) for Racketeering.

Specifically, the United States Code Title 18 Section 1961 through 1965 permits private citizens to sue people who are not being prosecuted; because they're organized criminal enterprise is so powerful - that no one will prosecute them. To address these issues of people being Above the Law, Section 1964(c) permits a citizen to become a "Private Attorney General".

Congress was well aware that powerful crime lords can have undue influence over the federal system of justice. To address such cases like Capone, where he appeared to be untouchable (just like Romney has been thus far), Congress even provided treble damages to motivate U.S. to become "Private Attorney Generals" and resolve "Prosecutorial Gaps". This Civil Right was affirmed by the U.S. Supreme Court in its Sedima case decision of 1995.

Our "Prosecutorial Gap" in this Racketeering case exists because of Romney's "retroactive" secrets. Mitt claims he was retired from Bain Capital as CEO in 1999; but we all know that he is lying about that. As Romney was caught on this issue, he flip flopped and claims he was CEO of Bain Capital until August 2001; and he then "retroactively" resigned back to February 11, 1999.

Mitt Romney's law firm Morris Nichols Arsht & Tunnell ("MNAT&quot also has a law firm partner from 1999 to August 2001; Mr. Colm F Connolly. On August 2, 2001, Colm Connolly was promoted to a position of power & corruption that assured there would be a "Prosecutorial Gap". As is detailed at the Department of Justice Office of Legal Policy Resume that;

Colm Connolly became the DE United States Attorney on August 2, 2001

Where, for his next sever years as chief federal prosecutor, Colm Connolly's office refused to investigate and/or prosecute his form partner (MNAT) and/or their clients Goldman Sachs, Bain Capital, Mitt Romney and his Gang.

For more on this story you can read the DailyKos Diary with links to other stories (here). The orange realm thread has over 10,000 Facebook likes; because that blogger told the story well and succinctly.

As for my brief, it is a rant. When one writes anything, a book, play, film; you are instructed to write from the heart and then reduce it to proper form. It was my plan to file it on October 31, 2013 (my birthday); but something came up that forced my hand to file it sooner.

If the corruption doesn't reach into California too;
then I'll AMEND my Complaint to be more "legal" true to form.

We've got them by the proverbial's, with the evidence being confessions, public docket records and much more (because they "believed" Romney was going to be POTUS and handpick the "friendly" US Attorney General Sheldon Adelson was paying for). So they left an evidence trail any high school student could prosecute them with. Fortunately for U.S. and my case;

Romney Didn't Make It!


Most people misunderstand "Civil" RICO.

- - - The Racketeering Influences Corruption Organizations ACT of 1970 was provided to U.S. by Congress, to handle sophisticated efforts in organized crime that assaults upon interstate commerce unlawfully.

A proviso of the RICO act is United States Code Title 18 Section 1964(c) - that states;

(c) Any person injured in his business or property by reason of a violation of section 1962 of this chapter may sue therefor in any appropriate United States district court and shall recover threefold the damages he sustains and the cost of the suit, including a reasonable attorney’s fee,

This "Civil Right" granted by Congress, who wanted it to be utilized so much so - that it is a Law (incentive) one can recover treble damages.

- - - - This civil right has been affirmed as Constitutionally sound

The United States Supreme Court addressed the issues of who, what and why Congress granted Civil RICO and the right to become a "Private Attorney General" in the 1995 case of Sedima v Imrex - where the court ruled that;

Finally, we note that a prior-conviction requirement would be inconsistent with Congress' underlying policy concerns. Such a rule would severely handicap potential plaintiffs. A guilty party may escape conviction for any number of reasons—not least among them the possibility that the Government itself may choose to pursue only civil remedies. Private attorney general provisions such as § 1964(c) are in part designed to fill prosecutorial gaps. Cf. Reiter v. Sonotone Corp., 442 U.S. 330, 344, 99 S.Ct. 2326, 2333, 60 L.Ed.2d 931 (1979). This purpose would be largely defeated, and the need for treble damages as an incentive to litigate unjustified, if private suits could be maintained only against those already brought to justice. See also n. 9, supra.

In sum, we can find no support in the statute's history, its language, or considerations of policy for a requirement that a private treble-damages action under § 1964(c) can proceed only against a defendant who has already been criminally convicted. To the contrary, every indication is that no such requirement exists. Accordingly, the fact that Imrex and the individual defendants have not been convicted under RICO or the federal mail and wire fraud statutes does not bar Sedima's action.


- - - - The remarks that the U.S. Government choosing only to pursue Civil Remedies does NOT prevent a citizen from seeking same; is exactly on point here. The DE Bankruptcy Court had the right to only fine Paul Traub's firm $750,000; but it has NO right to fail to refer the matter to the U.S. Attorney. As a matter of fact it is a command of Congress that judges are to NOTIFY & REFER criminal matters to federal authorities per 18 U.S.C. 3057(a).

When the Judge and US Trustee (commanded to do the same under 28 USC 586(a)(3)(F)) refused to go by the law - with the compounding issue that (even if they had) they would have been Notifying & Referring the matter to the CORRUPT U.S. Attorney Colm Connolly

Obvious creates a "Prosecutorial GAP" in need of being filled!

Romney Sued for RICO in Fed Court

Source: Press Release Friday October 18, 2013

Romney Sued for RICO in Fed Court

By Collateral Logistics, Inc.,
CEO Steven (“Laser”) Haas
([email protected])
October 18, 2013

Los Angeles – Steven (“Laser”) Haas owns Collateral Logistics, Inc., (“CLI”) locally. Haas sued Mitt Romney for $100 million today for Racketeering in the Central Federal District Court in Los Angeles at 3:47 pm. The case was assigned to the Honorable District Justice Stephen V. Wilson presiding; and Magistrate Justice Alicia G. Rosenberg to hear discovery motions.

Nature of Proceeding

The case is titled “Haas v Romney” and is assigned docket number CV13-07738. District Court Clerk’s office remarked that it may take several days to scan in the initial Complaint.

CLI’s owner Steven Haas (more commonly known as Laser) was compelled to file the Complaint in an alternative venue. The Delaware Bankruptcy Court Justice Mary F Walrath refused to address issues that Plaintiff Haas alleges are frauds upon the court and organized crimes by RICO Romney and his Gang.

Civil Racketeering complaints permit a plaintiff to become a “Private Attorney General” to address issues of “Prosecutorial Gaps”. Plaintiff Laser Haas claims that such prosecution gaps exist. The litigant alleges the former United States Attorney in Delaware (Colm F Connolly) had been a partner at the MNAT law firm in 2001. MNAT represents Goldman Sachs/ Bain Capital.

Goldman Sachs and Bain Capital are named as Co-Defendants

Also named in the lawsuit as “Defendants” are Goldman Sachs (who took eToys public and is accused of fraud), Bain Capital (that bought Kay Bee Toys in 2000) and Michael Glazer (CEO of Stage Stores and Kay Bee who worked with Bain/ Kay Bee to buy eToys) and Barry Gold (who worked as director’s assistant at Stage Stores and then became a post-bankruptcy petition President/CEO of eToys in May 2001. Plus Paul Traub is named (who confessed in 2005 that he was secretly Barry Gold’s partner). Mr. Traub was also partners with fraudster Marc Dreier and named by the Federal Receiver over Tom Petters Ponzi as “controller” thereof.

Colm Connolly was also named as “co-defendant” personally.

Previously, yours truly tried to address this issue in the Delaware Bankruptcy Court; but the judge and clerk there played unlawful/unethical games and refused to docket the October 24, 2012 filing - until November 6, 2012 (where Romney couldn't be hurt by the press learning the facts).

See the Delaware Bankruptcy Court filing of October 24, 2012 - online at Scribd (Here).

This is the Los Angeles California Federal District Court Complaint filed today (here).

If Mitt and his Gang do not manage to get the filing put under SEAL - or dismissed by corruption - the trial promises to be a doozie. Our Racketeering complete has Razor sharp teeth.

SUMMING up the Racketeering case in a nutshell.

Romney WAS the Bain Capital CEO when the following frauds transpired

  1. The Learning Company (worst corp merger of ALL time - lost $3 billion)
  2. Stage Stores (formed with Michael Milken fraud monies & corrupt judge]
  3. Kay Bee Toys (CEO Glazer paid himself $18 million and Bain $83 - then filed Bankrutpcy}
  4. eToys (a case that provides proof of federal corruption extraordinary)
  5. U.S. Attorney Colm Connolly was a Bain law firm partner

Civil RICO (Racketeering Influence Corrupt Organizations Act) permits any U.S. Citizen to become a "Private Attorney General" to go after people who are falling between the cracks in "Prosecutorial Gaps".

Romney, Bain Capital and Goldman Sachs are (always have been) - Above the Law

Federal corruption is protecting him in "Deal"aware.

We're going to see if the same holds true in California.

If the media picks this up - the evidence is So Strong - the RICO loses

ROLLING STONE September 2012 Cover Story by Matt Taibbi "Greed and Debt" The True Story About Mitt Romney and Bain Capital; details part of the Racketeering case.

That Mitt got his moneys for Stage Stores from junk bond fraudster Michael Milken;
because the judge's wife was a partner of the Stage Stores deal.


That Michael Glazer (CEO of Kay Bee) paid himself $18 million;
and Bain $83 million - before filing bankruptcy of Kay Bee.

That documents fraud and corruption in the past;
and our eToys case demonstrates how it evolved worse.

Former Democratic Congressman Disbarred for Calling Judges Corrupt

Don Bailey's website states that he is committed to fair and equal justice for all Americans. The former Congressman Don Bailey found himself to be harshly punished and ultimately disbarred for daring to say that there are Federal Judges who are acting in a corrupt/bad faith manner.

What happened to Don Bailey is not unique, as the system tyrannically punishes any critic.


Yours truly just so happens to be a victim of tyranny, cronyism and corruption. Thus, on the subject of the judiciary and/or our federal agents/ systems of justice acting in bad faith, I'm somewhat biased.

Unlike what others - who defend those we make allegations against - say that I'm a lawyer hater; such is simply not true. Yours truly LOVES the Law, our Constitution, our system of justice and the Code & Rule of Law. Beyond a shadow of any doubt, the Law is our friends. It provides resolution of disputes via a well thought out protocol to assure civility.

It is the abusers of the public trust, whom I've got problems with. And - apparently - so does Don Bailey. Those stalwarts in our systems of justice who hold to the mindset that corruption is impossible; they are obviously being illogical. Humans are imperfect. Millions of humans are involved in our systems of justice. Therefore, by the law of probability and outcome; there are GOING to be Bad Faith public servants who snake their way into a position of public trust.

I'm reposting this story from the orange realm;
because I can - and it is worth discussing as much as possible.


Former Congressman Don Bailey Call's Judges Corrupt
--------------------------------& Loses BAR Card: Professor Jonathan Turley Blog Defends

One critic of judicial over reach and abuse of power, is Law Professor Jonathan Turley. You can see his opine of Don Bailey's case upon the Jonathan Turley Blog story titled; "Former Pennsylvania Congressman Suspended From Practicing Law Due To Criticism Of Judges"

Professor Turley is no slouch of the system - as his accolades are many and distinguishable far beyond the norm (see below the fold). The Professor sums up his view on the case succinctly, with the following remark;

"I tend to favor the free speech values in such cases. In the Indiana, I fail to see how emails criticizing judges should be the basis for discipline. This is a matter of professional opinion. What do you think"?

As one punished by tyranny, cronyism, corruption and assaulted by "circle the wagon" members of the BAR, on a regular bases; I'm biased more than most about this particular issue. It is easy for me to be a Don Bailey fan. Therefore, I'll quote Don Bailey and provide quotes of the punishing body; and ask the same question of the reader - that Professor Turley hath done;

"What do you think"?

BACKGROUND Law Professor & Attorney at Law - Jonathan Turley's BIO

First Amendment activist and blogger Professor Jonathan Turley is an exceptional attorney at law. Jonathan Turley has represented Members of Congress who challenged the Libyan War, workers at secret facilities such as Area 51 and Oak Ridge Nuclear.

Also Professor Turley represents Florida activist Dr. Ali Al-Timimi accussed of being the American leader of a terror organization and David Murphee Faulk, the NSA Whistle-Blower.

Jonathan Turley also has been a consultant to HomeLand Security as well. His Blog is recognized by the American Bar Association as a Top 100. With many accolades and notes that go on beyond extraordinary. You can see more of his BIO (here).


Former Congressman, Lawyer & Activist Don Bailey

Don Bailey is a former Democratic Congressman of Pennsylvania. His law firm's website "Don Bailey Law" details the fact that Don Bailey was born in Pittsburgh, served in Vietnam, went to Law school, who then became a Congressman winning a relection that gerrymandering made sure would not happen again. Mr. Bailey has other notes from his BIO that shows he won the Democratic nomination for Auditor General of Pennsylvania' but lost his bid to become Governor.

Suspension of Don Bailey's License to Practice Law

You can, if you desire, read PennLive's extensive stories of this particular case from beginning, to what the BAR now believes is "The End" of Don Bailey's legal career (here).
According to PennLive (The Patriot-News of Central PA) - Don Bailey is a "Controversial Attorney" who just had his license to practice law suspended for 5 years. The Bar and Supreme Court of Pennsylvania state the suspension is warranted; because Don Bailey's allegations were deemed to be baseless.

by Whom - is the question?

Opening Statement of Respondent Don Bailey Aug 11 2011

As noted by one of the comment parties upon Jonathan Turley's Blog on the Don Bailey saga, "annonymously posted" provided links to a Civil Rights Activist Law Network blog (here). The 1st link has commentary and also provides sub links to things like an interview with Don Bailey that is recorded upon Bailey's website (here). Apparently the video is now redacted. But there are more sublinks, including an appeal to the Third Circuit (see the appeal on Don Bailey's fines - here).
Yours truly has been before the Third Circuit and finds it to be corrupt also!

Thus, in all likelihood, Don Bailey is not going to get a fair review of the facts by the Third Circuit Court of the United States in PA. In our eToys case - that Circuit - stated the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure "don't apply" to our eToys case. Chances are the Circuit will find NO Rules (other than corruption) will apply to activist Don Bailey's case.

What Bailey said to the Governing Body Hearing his case;

------------------------ Opening State of Respondent

Mr. Chairman, Mr. Fulton, and Attendees,

I very much appreciate the opportunity to defend myself, to the extent I can under the limitations I must endure, against charges that I wrote in a pleading that certain federal judges were misbehaving. I confess that I did so. Because objectively speaking, they were. And I also confess that I still believe every word that I said.

The Federal judicial system, at least in the Middle District of Pennsylvania, has been corrupted by certain errant and dishonest judges. There is no need to address what we have suffered, as of late, in our state judicial system. And even greater than the injustices that I am suffering right here are the deprivations of American citizens who deserve, but have been denied, their day in court. Political and personal misconduct by judicial officers continues in our system. The evidence is overwhelming. Favoritism, selective law firm influence, cronyism and political retribution are common place. Corruption in Pennsylvania has become a pervasive way of life. There isn’t a lawyer, nor is there a functionary in this system, who is not aware of these facts. And just because there’s always been some wrongdoing doesn’t mean this is okay. There are two generic classes of victims in this orchestration. The unfortunate spill off reflects on the large maturity of our judges, the decent and honest judges whose service we are privileged to enjoy, countless citizens are required to depend upon a class of dishonest and corrupt public officials to try and seek redress of their grievances. There is no greater example of the corruption which exists in Pennsylvania today than this very proceeding. Pennsylvania’s so-called Lawyer’s Disciplinary System is a fraud. If a lawyer dares to complain then his or her profession and livelihood are threatened and destroyed. Furthermore, as Paul Killian’s behavior demonstrates, in one place you apply standards, in the next place you don’t, it all depends on who the favor is being done for".

Then, Don Bailey concluded by stating;

Please allow me to finish with a brief personal story.

… We found the disjointed chopped skeletons of over 200 people who had been marched out of Nam Hoa in 1968. Their names had been on a list because they had said things critical of the Communists. That’s all they did. They had criticized the political structure. Now the story, which is true, is certainly an exaggeration to press the point here. But how far removed is this so-called hearing or process? Perhaps not as far as some of you would like to think? You would take my right to earn a living, but more important my right to represent people that not one of you has the courage to stand up and fight for. That I voiced substantive criticisms is not important. You haven’t the slightest interest in the accuracy or efficacy of what I said about these judges’ and their misbehavior. Your only fear is that someone will hear what my clients and I said and might pay attention to it. You see what you seek to stop is any attorney saying anything critical of any judge at any time. The judicial system charged with the responsibility for protecting American citizens from First Amendment intrusions by the government is the greatest abuser of all.


Summing it all up - What do you think?

Do you believe the process was fair to Don Bailey? Was the punishment just? Are we allowed to criticize our judiciary in this country? Do you feel you will be punished, if you tell the truth about judicial biasness? Do you FEAR your federal systems of justice?
I say it's all B.S. - but I'm a victim burnt by judicial tyranny, cronyism & corruption.

Thus kit is better - as Professor Turley asked - What do YOU think?

Are Judges Inherently Too Big to Fail & Too Big to Jail?
