If I understand what you are saying, you feel that my suggesting Honesty, Honor and fidelity as a solution to the problem of guardianship for the indolent, obnoxious, incompetent and uncontrollable elder or disabled person who now needs social services.    Indeed, in a vacuum it does seem to be Pollyannaish.   But, it is not.    It is not because we do have good people out there and the Jerome Larkin et al conspirators are a minority – but growing.
This is the reason we need the media, the legal profession, and citizens in general to defy the conspirators (including but not limited to Larkin, and his group) and clean up the mess now before it become metastatic.   Larkin and his 18 USCA 371 co-conspirators have unilaterally revoked the…

From the Probate Blog–the fight to save Casey Ksem

MaryGSykes.com

http://www.probatelawyerblog.com/2015/06/casey-kasems-daughter-fights-for-new-guardianship-visitation-laws.html

Kerri Kasem, the daughter of the late American Top 40 DJ, Casey Kasem, has been on a mission to make sure what happened to her and her siblings does not happen to others. When her father’s health deteri  orated from Parkinson’s disease, it sparked an ugly court battle between his children and his wife, Jean Kasem, which did not end until he died.  By then, Casey Kasem was suffering from serious bed sores, a urinary tract infection, and sepsis.   Casey-and-Kerri-Kasem-300x277

Kerri Kasem feels that her father’s death could have been prevented if she and her siblings had been able to see him and monitor his care better, but there were not sufficient protections in the law to help.

Like many other adult children in her shoes, Kerri Kasem went to court to be able to see her father and make sure he was protected.  She faced a very difficult…

More on Fraud on the Court and reporting crimes against disableds and seniors

They are not immune from acts outside of the color of law like felony criminal or misdemeanor acts.  This is why I suggest before filing fraud on court or in conjunction go to the local PD department first and file a criminal complaint as Barbara has done against Genden.  Get a FORMAL COMPLAINT NUMBER, make sure they intake properly and DO NOT let them push you to the bar or JQC who have no jurisdiction over criminal matters.  Your criminal complaint should have:

  1. Code sections you are complaining about from Statutes, ie Obstruction, Aiding & Abetting, Fraud, etc.
  2. Brief description of each crime (usually take code and rewrite to fit to crime against you) and no more than two paragraphs.
  3. One to two of best evidence, not all, set traps if you can as you will…

From ALJ Kessell–An award of Thousands of Dollars in fines for isolating a senior

MaryGSykes.com

Obviously someone is listening and the flying monkeys better take notice to either leave or dip deeper in those pockets for bribes (and maybe it isn’t worth is any longer?) because the ALJ’s in Medicare complaints are cracking down.

April 10, 2015 case of sykesblog-081015-NMSHealthcarev.CMS-nursinghomerights

the ALJ Kessel made it clear that he would not tolerate violations of Medicare regulations and he fined the facility thousands of dollars for isolating an elderly woman from one daughter based upon a POA from another daughter that the facility enforced.

 However, she eventually cooperated and returned. Id.
The resident was moved to the locked unit of Petitioner’s facility upon her return on January 22, 2014. From that date and thereafter, the resident was confined behind a locked door that denied her egress from the wing on which she was confined and from the facility itself. Petitioner not only confined Resident # 4, it…

From Dr. Cordero–a format for justice

MaryGSykes.com

I think what you wrote is good, but it would help to be more specific for pro se’ers.  For example, most people do not know that you can get a judge recused for the following behavior:

Rude behavior, scoffing at, making noises, making faces while you are talking or saying you cannot speak at all without an attorney and then letting the other side go on and on and on and not letting you respond.

The standard in most jurisdictions for recusal of a judge is that you have a reasonable fear that you will not get a fair trial or hearing and the judge will be biased against you.

Obviously, issuing contempt and Body Attachment orders in a civil case gets you there–those are unconstitutional. Gag orders  or “you must not talk about X” are also unconstitutional and will get you there (motion to recuse).

A recusal is not…

From Harpersville, Georgia–a Judicially run extortion racket–ABA Journal reports

MaryGSykes.com

http://www.abajournal.com/news/article/court_and_probation_company_are_running_extortion_racket_alabama_judge_says/

Depositions indicate that criminal defendants appearing in the Harpersville Municipal Court

“have been subjected to repeated and ongoing violations of almost every safeguard afforded by the United States Constitution, the laws of the State of Alabama, and the Rules of Criminal Procedure,” Harrington wrote in an order (PDF) issued Wednesday.

Harrington temporarily enjoined the city from incarcerating individuals on probation or in post-conviction proceedings unless it first holds a hearing and then obtains his permission. He also said individuals who are convicted must have at least 30 days to pay fines and court costs without being assessed additional fines.

Harrington said the constitutional violations are “so numerous as to defy a detailed chronicling in this short space.”

Defendants are placed on probation with the company, he said, when they are unable to pay the entire amount of assessed fines and court costs on the day of trial. Defendants are…

Only from Texas–Can granny stand her ground and shoot?

MaryGSykes.com

http://texastombraiders.com/get-ready-to-stand-your-ground-granny-shoot-first/

Now I want you to know, I didn’t write this and I don’t advocate violence.  I certainly don’t advocate shooting all the miscreant GAL’s and “professional guardians” out there by grandma and grandpa, but probate blog followers certainly are creative and imaginative.

I have published on this blog (somewhere) the name of a grandpa, who, when targeted, the miscreants (court appointed jerks) showed up at his door step with a court order and police and told he had to leave and go to a locked down nursing home.  What did grandpa do?  Get on his motorcycle and smash into a tree down the block at 60 mph. Worked.  He was dead on the spot.

But what if he stood his ground and argued (correctly) the order was unconstitutional, it violated due process, the 14th amendment for equal protection, the Americans with Disabilities act and draining an estate, isolating a…

The truth about what happened to Casey Kasem–daughter breaks silences and advocates for parental visitation

MaryGSykes.com

http://www.komonews.com/news/local/Daughter-of-Casey-Kasem-breaks-her-silence-about-dads-death-320832971.html

If you read the story, by the time the daughter got a court order to see her own dad, from an evil second wife and guardian, dad was too sick.  Typical story of bedsores, neglect, fluid filled lungs–belonged in a hospital weeks ago.

He could not be saved, but the kids could visit.

She now supports visitation laws and enacting them across the country — as does the Catherine Falk Organization so that ailing parents do not have to be isolated from caring loving children.  Let’s pray for them and their work.
