Brooke Astor's Son does not get jailed.. - Question IS - Who Will Be?

I'm re-posting this story from LBN - due to banter on nicky picky issues. In a way it is better to post here; because of the liberty to put forth opinions. However, it will not get the attention it duly deserves - as it was getting in Latest Breaking News forum.

Brooke Astor's estate was being stolen by skullduggery and her son (now 89 years old) - was being locked up to make sure the grand larceny worked well.

Thanks to activist Kevin McKeown (owner of "Corrupt Courts" Blog) - and others;
the ganef's didn't get what they wished for.....

The LBN story was posting of the Original EthicsGate Blog - titled

"BREAKING NEWS: Brooke Astor Estate Conviction Toss Imminent"

[hr]

NUTSHELL Story;

Brooke Astor was a wealthy New Yorker extremely generous. Upon her passing, fights broke out over who is really gonna get paid. What is at stake is $150 MILLION $$$$$

That type of gelt brings out many blood sucking ganef's!



This permitted the "good ole boys" network in Westchester County Surrogate Court have been fleecing 2nd generation Will recipients for decades now. This time they picked on the wrong 87 year old guy. Purportedly (and we can trust Corrupt Court's owner Kevin McKeown - much more than most) - a massive state and federal investigation has been ongoing. As a result, Brooke Astor son's (Anthony Marshall) conviction is about to be overturned. Mr. Marshall had just endured open heart surgery, is 89 years of age and now suffers from the post-traumatic stress disorder known as "Legal Abuse Syndrome".

Thank G-d justice finally is coming somewhere - as the convictions are going to be made moot!

Here's what was posted as direct quotes from the article;

Source: EthicsGate - Expose Corrupt Courts - Blogspot

An on-going investigation into billion-dollar-plus tax-evasion involving Manhattan and Westchester trusts, estates and non-profits has revealed attorney missteps in the Brooke Astor estate that, according to legal experts, will result in the related criminal convictions being vacated.

It turns out that U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara's long-term persistence in addressing the rampant corruption in New York State might have had the collateral result of keeping Brooke Astor's 89-year-old son out of prison.

The defendants, Anthony Marshall and Francis Morrisey, were last in court on Friday, April 19, 2013, and could have been hauled off that day to begin serving their 1-3 year prison sentences. The New York State Supreme Court Justice, the Hon. A. Kirke Bartley, Jr., however, allowed the defendants to remain free pending the outcome of the latest appellate filing.

Not knowing what Judge Bartley would decide on April 19th, the New York State Corrections Department waited with a stretcher to cart Brooke Astor's ailing son off to begin his sentence. That same morning, a New York attorney named Susan Robbins was enjoying her breakfast, apparently unaware that her actions- and/or inactions- involving the Astor estate criminal proceedings had been revealed on Monday, April 15, 2013.

Here's my commentary to the LBN posting;


All the press and the courts had the entire country believing that the 89 year old, wheel chair glued son of Brooke Astor - should go to jail for stealing momma's money. Turns out that it was the judge and his ilk who are the one's doing the stealing.

Many of you who have been following my battle with Romney/Bain and Goldman Sachs have become informed on the facts/proof that GSachs and Bain Capital are "Above the Law". So much so, they simply break it openly and destroy anyone who dares to get in their way (yours truly being one of the destroyed). The fact of the matter is, having seen federal corruption at its most - 1st hand - it is now my first (inherent) instinct to scoff at any claims of doing a honest job (in the same way most people scoff at my contentions of being Romney's personal enemy). Therefore, when Governor Cuomo and U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara stipulated that they were clamping down on corruption in New York State - this activist believed it was nothing more than pander to the crowd. Apparently Cuomo and Preet are having just as hard a time tackling tyranny, cronyism and corruption as the rest of U.S.


I must now apologize to Preet and Cuomo - OPENLY - as it appears they are doing a good job here!

Even other close yiddish friend of mine believed that the 89 year old son of Brooke Astor should go to jail and they tried to persuade me to think the same. However, I've met a man "online" whom I've come to admire (and that is something very rare). His name is Kevin McKeown and he is the owner of Expose Corrupt Courts and Ethicsgate blogs/webs.

In the realm of whistleblowers and activists true blue - Kevin McKeown is a King Arthur pure bred.

Turns out that for generations - the New York probate courts tend to prey upon the meek. I know of one gal, Donna Sturman, whom banks, courts and her very own attorneys stole her family's $80 million in Real Estate assets, leaving her and her children homeless. In the jungle of probate estates, the 2nd generation usually gets devoured gangland style - by everyone who can.

As reported by the EthicsGate story (and Kevin McKeown never makes an unqualified statement) - Astor's son is going to get justice in more ways than one. Can you believe a judge was really going to send an 89 year old wheelchair guy to prison? How about probation under house arrest - for crying out loud!

This vindication is heart warming and the hope for REAL justice is exciting to see. Thank YOU - Anthony Marshall and Francis Morrisey - for hanging in the battle and not giving up! Thank you VERY MUCH - Kevin McKeown; for your temerity and tenacity in the pursuit of justice!

And a BIG THANK YOU to Governor Cuomo and United States Attorney Preet Bharara;
for doing your job with excellence and restoring my hope that justice can prevail.

We anxiously await the next phase of this saga.

NOTE: Many previous stories pounced upon the son and friend = including the New York Times and Law Prof's network and Bloomberg -etc!

Wonder if they will print this new story with the same exuberance!

Bloomberg News Brown Noses SEC and feigns reporting utilizing white collar lawyer as writer

Bloomberg View posted an opinion piece today - titled;

"You Don't Want to Mess With Wall Street's Cop"

I wonder why that is - what are they (the SEC) going to do - No Arrest Me Too!




I'm just sayin....... that Bloomberg should have more of conscience.


The story piece starts out seemingly on the side of righteousness with the following intro;

With its recent insider-trading settlement against SAC Capital Advisors LP, the Securities and Exchange Commission is again under fire for its policy of letting defendants resolve fraud allegations without admitting wrongdoing.


Then, the person providing his opinion (a white collar defense attorney, by the way) - goes down the pathway of inference with the following babbling banter B.S. ;

Good Understanding

Since the early 1970s, by contrast, SEC policy has coupled the carrot of not requiring an admission of wrongdoing with the stick of prohibiting any public denial. Although SEC settlements donít always recite the facts of each case in minute detail, they almost always include enough information to provide the reader with a good understanding of why the defendant was sued, what laws were allegedly violated and what sanctions were imposed. In each case, this information is filed with the court and posted on the SECís website for the world to scrutinize


Finally, the white collar defense attorney pretending to be a reporter (named Mr. Ryan no less) - settles down to his defense of his former employer (that's correct, the opinion is from a former SEC person turned white collar defense counsel) - who pens this arbitrary & capricious self serving banter that;

Settling cases without an admission of wrongdoing is eminently fair and reasonable, not a sign of spinelessness. Hereís hoping the SEC has the fortitude to continue defending its commendable approach to settlements.

Review of the (sic) "Opinion"
.
Apparently, Bloomberg thinks it is okay to have a writing in their "View" portion, by a biased party, making a mockery of our ability to comprehend what is really going on in the world. As the Bloomberg editorial staff could see, if they paid attention to reality and the comment section of the opinion piece, I'm not the only party who isn't buying into the babbling bull pies that Bloomberg and Mr. Ryan are slinging.

The American citizenry has the web now. All behind door operations and burying of Madoff files always seem to ferret their way out of the darkness and into the light. Then the inflexible sword of truth starts to slay nefarious lords. Mr Ryan links his story to former SEC Chief Prosecutor Khuzami on the "Settlement" practices of the SEC (see link HERE ). Again, this is horse manure straight from the source of dung upon high. Khuzami is no longer with the SEC, neither is Mary Schapiro and half a dozen other misfit poor excuses for public servants. Including one decent man who was fired for trying to do his job - Mr. David Weber. The SEC's very own watchdog group (the Office of Inspector General "OIG" of the SEC) has a bunch of bad apples who colluded to fire David Weber for wanting to take his public trust position seriously (see Matt Taibbi's Rolling Stone story - SEC Rocked by Lurid Sex & Corruption - HERE -)

As for me, I'm biased too, but as a victim of organized crime pretending to be white collar fraud that the SEC has been burying for 12 years. Goldman Sachs took eToys public in 1999 and the stocked soared to $85; but eToys received less than $20. When the questions that beg (likie where did the rest of the money go) - were asked, eToys was placed into bankruptcy (DE Bankr 01-706). The law firm that asked the Delawre Federal Bankruptcy Court for permission to be eToys debtors counsel was Morris Nichols Arsht & Tunnel (MNAT). The www.MNAT.com law firm then asked the DE Bankruptcy Court for permission to Destroy Books & Records. Then MNAT nominated Paul Traub to prosecute Goldman Sachs in the New York Supreme Court case of eToys (renamed ebc1) v Goldman Sachs (case# 601805/2002). Unfortunately, thus far, that decade long case has not gone anywhere;

because Paul Traub was a partner of fraudster Marc Dreier, Ponzi Schemer Tom Petters and MNAT.

And MNAT is Bain Capital (who bought eToys for practically nothing) and also counsel for Goldman Sachs.

NOW WAIT - that's not the best of it. For we did finally force MNAT to confess its Goldman Sachs secret. However, even though MNAT admitted to lying under oath 15 times over several years (and has actually lied hundreds of times since then about Bain Capital), MNAT was never punished. I'll begin to believe that the SEC is trying to do its job, when they DO THEIR JOB!


The reason MNAT, Bain Capital, Goldman Sachs and Paul Traub have never been investigated, arrested, prosecuted and incarcerated, is because Colm Connolly, a MNAT partner became the DE United States Attorney on August 2, 2001

and then did his own destruction of eToys case files for 7 years.

Here's Colm Connolly's Resume ( HERE )

New York Proposes New Laws Against Public Corruption

Source: Reuters

By journalist Daniel Trotta

- New York state Governor Andrew Cuomo proposed three new laws on Tuesday aimed at stopping government corruption, after federal prosecutors brought two criminal cases against elected officials in the state last week.

Decrying a culture of political corruption in New York and describing the two recent cases as "especially brazen and arrogant behavior," Cuomo promised to introduce the so-called Public Trust Act to the state legislature

Since 1999, 20 state legislators in New York have been ousted because of criminal or ethical issues, according to the good government group Citizens Union. The New York Public Interest Research Group found that, since 2007, state senators have been more likely to be arrested than to lose their seats in a general election.

Though I am deeply concerned that the State of NY is hinting of the fact that the Feds should not be the ones handling corruption in the state of NY, many of U.S. are also delighted that the corruption issues are getting some attention.

Governor Cuomo makes a great remark on how brazen and flagrant these recent cases are.

Being a victim of massive federal corruption by a former U.S. Attorney - I am going to watch this play out - attentively!

Romney's Racketeering Gang are acting as if their mob boss won.

Mitt Romney was CEO of Bain Capital in 2001. His law firm was www.MNAT.com

MNAT is also the law firm for Goldman Sachs that took eToys public.

They perpetrated massive frauds, offered me a bribe (as my entity was in control of the eToys bankruptcy). I said no and reported their crimes. Romney resigned as CEO of Bain in August 2001 and Colm Connolly (an MNAT partner) because the DE U.S. Attorney on August 2, 2001.

Since then the crimes have increased in a colossal manner.

Paul Traub also is a silent partner of Romney's Bain Capital.

Fraudster Marc Dreier is doing 20 years, Tom Petters Ponzi is doing 50 years;
and OKUN's of Okun 1031 Tax Group is doing 100 years.

They were all involved and/or partners with Paul Traub.

The New York Times came out with an article on our etoys company
"Rigging the I.P.O. Game" -
http://www.nytimes.com/2013/03/10/opinion/sunday/nocera-rigging-the-ipo-game.html?pagewanted=all


Justice is finally coming and the rat bastards think they can threaten me.

So I responded to the Region 3 U.S. Trustee, Assistant U.S. Trustee and their trial Attorney
Roberta DeAngelis, Thomas Patrick Tinker and Mark Kenney

with the following - FRukka YOU email ---------

Dear Assistant United States Trustee T P Thomas;

Having discovered the fact that you are the Assistant U.S. Trustee in Delaware, over our eToys case (DE Bankr 01-706) and have failed miserably, in keeping your oath to protect the Constitution of the United States and our eToys entity from enemies foreign and "Domestic" engaged in organized crimes against U.S. With the further compounding factor that you had the sheer audacity to be of the "Ethics Panel: Candor, Conflicts ( of Interest ). And that you did so with the despot Kelly Beaudin Stapleton.

WHEREAS this email shall serve to put you on notice - being that the Racketeering Gang continues to perpetrate frauds on the court in both Wilmington, DE Federal Bankruptcy Court, the DE District Court, the 3rd Circuit and NY Supreme Court - with your senior official (Roberta DeAngelis) knowledge and duplicity - along with your subordinate Mark Kenney protecting the organized criminal Bankruptcy Ring of Greg Werkheiser, Barry Gold, Paul Traub, Frederick Rosner, Michael Glazer, Susan Balaschak, Frederick Rosner, former DE U.S. Attorney Colm Connolly and other parties known and unknown - including the CEO of Bain Capital in 2001 - Willard Mitt Romney.

WHEREAS you have 3 options.

1) - Do your job, admit your failures to Notify & Refer the eToys case for prosecution.
and/or
2) - RESIGN as did Kelly B. Stapleton, Frank Perch and EOUST Director Lawrence Friedman
and/or
3) - ocntinue in your duplicity, tyranny, cronyism and corruption.

Option 3 no longer bodes well for you guys. In case you didn't notice - the bastard mob boss Mitt Romney didn't make it! You are exposed and the stunt of not docketing the last filing has served this amoeba well. Our eToys case is now launched to higher levels of review. Yeah, I know, Laser Haas is an insignificant pain in the ass. However, the difference between your GANG and myself - is that I took my oath of office seriously.


March 10, 2013 - New York Times article "Rigging the I.P.O. Game"
http://www.nytimes.com/2013/03/10/opinion/sunday/nocera-rigging-the-ipo-game.html?pagewanted=all

Please take note: The wish for my end will not bode well for you.

Justice is coming because the inflexible sword of truth combined with your blatant, flagrant betrayal of the public's trust do not mix well.

I have a former U.S. Attorney in my corner now.

You guys kidnapped the wrong man's daughter!

It should not be necessary for me to ask you to remove the organized criminals of MNAT, Traub, Rosner and Barry Gold from eToys.

IT IS YOUR SWORN DUTY TO DO SUCH!

Sincerely
Laser Haas
Justice is due diligence
