Supreme Court Unanimously Rules in Favor of Minneapolis Woman in a Win for Property Owners


In a recent ruling, the United States Supreme Court sided with a 94-year-old woman who accused the government of stealing her home equity.  Geraldine Tyler is a 94-year-old woman who got nothing from the sale of her condominium after the county pocketed the full $40,000 because she owed $15,000 in unpaid taxes and penalties.  The court ruled that keeping the additional $25,000 was unconstitutional.  The unanimous decision is a win for property owners under the Fifth Amendment of the United States Constitution.

Supreme Court and Its Justices: Not So Supreme


As a description of the problem of Clarence Thomas, however, corruption too has its limits.  Morally, corruption rotates on the same axis as sincerity—forever testing the purity or impurity, the tainted genealogy, of someone’s beliefs.  But money hasn’t paved the way to Thomas’ positions. On the contrary, Thomas’ positions have paved the way for money.  A close look at his jurisprudence makes clear that Thomas is openly, proudly committed to helping people like Crow use their wealth to exercise power.  That’s not just the problem of Clarence Thomas. It’s the problem of the court and contemporary America.

Nationwide Web of Crime and Corruption

This post is a continuation of last month's.  As astounding as these events are, and as intricate the web of crime and corruption, they are not unique to me.  Our country's legal system is so incredibly bad that I have no doubt it is at least as bad as, if not worse than, any third world's system, such as Nigeria, Somalia, Mozambique, or even Mexico.  Without further ado, here is part two of last month's post:

Corruption in U.S. District Court RI—Joseph Michaud Conspires with Judge McElroy: Part One of Two


At the risk of sounding like a broken record, once again Joseph Leonard Michaud, a state judge in the People's Republic of Massachusetts, has violated Constitutional law, ethical rules, and criminal laws: Rhode Island state law §11-32-3 and federal law 18 U.S. Code § 1503—both of which are felonies.  Michaud has obstructed justice in three separate court systems: trial courts in his home state, bankruptcy court in California, and now federal court in Rhode Island.  Just days ago, a public reprimand was issued against him.  Understand that any form of judicial discipline is exceedingly rare here in Amerika.  This upstanding citizen has also been sued multiple times.  For example, one matter was an action related to wind turbines and another involved union issues.

Top FBI Official in Los Angeles Connected to Tom Girardi


Corruption runs deep in Los Angeles.  It appears that the investigation into Tom Girardi is starting to peel back the layers of inside involvement by a government official and private individuals who conspired with Girardi and his law firm.  Last week, the head of the FBI’s Los Angeles field office formally recused himself from the federal investigation into fraud and corruption by Tom Girardi and others at his now defunct law firm.
