The Inslaw/PROMIS theft is part and parcel of the New World Order plan to control the hearts, minds and souls of the people of this country. The following series of links shows that what Casolaro was about to connect was the criminal-tracking technology to a massive mind-control enterprise using "non-lethal weapons. Connect the dots.
CASOLARO DIED JUST AFTER TALKING TO A SOURCE CONNECTED TO A DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE CONTRACTING OFFICER.
Inslaw's Executive Summary states, in part:
Although these allegations are profoundly disturbing, there is significant circumstantial evidence that bears on the plausibility of the allegations. As reported in INSLAW's July 11, 1993 rebuttal, Casolaro was scheduled to have his final, follow-up meeting with two sources on INSLAW in West Virginia the night before he died, and one of those sources was connected to the Justice Department's PROMIS Contracting Officer. As reported in this addendum, the meeting between Casolaro and those sources had allegedly been brokered by a covert intelligence operative for the U.S. Government, an Army Special Forces Major. This individual appeared in Casolaro's life during the final several weeks and introduced himself to Casolaro as one of the closest friends of the Government's PROMIS Contracting Officer. Finally, during the final week of his life, Casolaro told at least five confidants something that he had never told a single one of them at any other time during his year-long, full-time investigation: that he had just broken the INSLAW case...
Although the NSA is quoted in the Bua Report as claiming that it internally developed its PROMIS, the Toronto Globe and Mail reported in May 1986 that the NSA had purchased a PROMIS software system from a Toronto- based company. As shown in Exhibit A to INSLAW's July 11, 1993 rebuttal, Earl Brian's Hadron, Inc. sold INSLAW's PROMIS to the same Toronto company in 1983, in a transaction that also allegedly involved Edwin Meese, then Counselor to the President. ....
The INSLAW affair was a premeditated, cynical and deceitful taking of INSLAW's software property by the chief law enforcement agency of the United States without due process of law and without compensation to INSLAW in violation of the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution.

PROMIS WAS ORIGINALLY FINANCED BY THE USA'S LEAA TO HELP US ATTORNEYS TRACK CRIMINAL CASELOADS.
The Department of Justice has long recognized the need for a standardized management information system to assist law enforcement offices across the country in the record keeping and tracking of criminal cases. During the 1970's, the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration (LEAA) funded the development by INSLAW1 of a computer software system called the Prosecutor's Management Information System or PROMIS. This system was designed to meet the criminal prosecutor workloads of large urban jurisdictions; and by 1980, several large U.S. attorneys offices were using the PROMIS software. At this time, INSLAW (formerly called the Institute for Law and Social Research) was a nonprofit corporation funded almost entirely through Government grants and contracts. When President Carter terminated the LEAA, INSLAW converted the company to a for-profit corporation in 1981 to commercially market PROMIS.
THE LEAA (FOUNDER OF PROMIS) WHICH SPURRED THE COMPUTERIZATION OF POLICE WORK THROUGHOUT THE US WAS DESIGNED TO CONTROL "SOCIAL TURBULENCE." THE LEAA WAS THE FATHER OF NLECTC AND LEATC. AND GUESS WHOSE DEEP INTO THE OPERATION--NASA.
The Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968 created LEAA in, as one commentator noted, "an environment of social turbulence. Crime rates were climbing, the incidence of drug abuse was on the rise, riots and disorders were becoming commonplace, and America's political leaders were targets for assassination attempts." In this climate, LEAA sought to spur the computerization of policing. The big push started in the early 1970s. It is uncertain how much LEAA spent on police computerization, but police agencies began to acquire computers. However, many departments with access to computers in the 1970s and even into the 1980s seemed reluctant to use them for more than routine tasks. Why were many police agencies not making more effective use of computers? Leading police chiefs blamed the complexities of the new technology, the cautious, conservative nature of many police officers, and citizens' "fear of Big Brother." Lack of funds for computer training and equipment maintenance also played a part.
The Law Enforcement Assistance Administration paid for big ticket technology items such as computers, software, and crime laboratories, but the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), an agency for many years under the LEAA umbrella , was the designated federal source of research and development in law enforcement technology. In its review of its first 25 years, the Institute made special note of two accomplishments in technology -- the development of lightweight body armor and support for DNA analysis to improve evidence used in investigating crimes.
In a time of rapidly advancing technologies, NLECTC serves as a one-stop technology education, assessment, and referral source for the nation's law enforcement agencies. NLECTC consists of a national hub in Rockville, Maryland; regional centers in New York, South Carolina, Colorado, and California; and three specialized offices: the Border Research and Technology Center (BRTC) in California; the Office of Law Enforcement Technology Commercialization (OLETC) in West Virginia; the Office of
Law Enforcement Standards (OLES) in Maryland; and the National Center for Forensic Science in Orlando, Florida. NLECTC's hub is in a Maryland suburb of Washington, D.C., and has several functions.
The Maryland office is the nation's collection agent and repository of information about law enforcement and corrections technology. It publishes and distributes a large collection of reports on diverse matters, such as body armor, pepper spray, patrol car tire tests, metallic handcuffs, and DNA profiling. It also publishes TechBeat, a periodical covering the latest developments in police technology. It created and manages JUSTNET, NLECTC's site on the World Wide Web.
The Office of Law Enforcement Technology Commercialization (OLETC) encourages the commercial development and manufacture of promising, innovative technologies. It offers support and information about the intricacies of commercialization to law enforcement agencies and criminal justice organizations, as well as the research, product development, and manufacturing communities. OLETC is a joint project sponsored by NIJ, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and the National Technology Transfer Center. The Border Research and Technology Center
in San Diego has the special mission of fostering technologies which provide improved capabilities in border surveillance, security, and identification. The center works closely with the U.S. Customs Service, the U.S. Border Patrol, and local law enforcement agencies concerned with border problems. The National Center for Forensic Science in Orlando, Florida, focuses on research and training in the area of arson and explosives.
The Office of Law Enforcement Technology Commercialization (OLETC) fosters commercial development and manufacture of promising, innovative technologies. It operates by providing technology commercialization and support and technology transfer information to law enforcement and other criminal justice organizations and the manufacturing and technology communities. OLETC is a joint project sponsored by NIJ, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and the National Technology Transfer Center, and is located at Wheeling Jesuit College in Wheeling, West Virginia.
WHY IS THE OLETC LOCATED AT WHEELING JESUIT COLLEGE IN WEST VIRGINIA?
The youth-centered activities began early as Wheeling Jesuit University (WJU) buses transported children from parts of Wheeling to a free breakfast served in the culinary arts dining room at West Virginia Northern Community College's Hazel Atlas Building. Faculty and staff volunteers from WVNCC prepared eggs, French toast, juice and other healthy items. WJU buses then transported the children to WJU to begin the full day of activities.
More than 200 children participated in a variety of youth activities including visiting the Erma Ora Byrd Center for Educational Technology (CET) and to participate in activities at the Challenger Leaning Center (CLC). They visited the Robert C. Byrd National Technology Transfer Center (NTTC) to explore flight and invention. The Office of Law Enforcement Technology Commercialization (OLETC) and Blockbuster Video conducted Kidsprint video identifications. The children were also able to participate in mini soccer or basketball clinics and viewed artifacts from the Flushing's Underground Railroad Museum Traveling Trunk. Artworks from Old Town assisted children in making story quilts and essays from Ohio County students were on display at the Erickson Alumni Center in the Alma Grace McDonough Center.
Standing like a sentinel above modest houses and neat yards, the $13 million structure dominates the hillside entrance to its host, Wheeling Jesuit College.
If there is a monument to the federal government's adulation of technology transfer - the idea that technology created by government scientists can now be used to revive American industries, create jobs and help the United States catch up with global competitors - this is it.
That such a facility is located at an obscure liberal-arts college in Wheeling is a testament to the determination of its president, who saw federal aid to his school increase threefold in a year.
That such a facility is situated in West Virginia is a testament to the political clout of its namesake, Democratic Sen. Robert C. Byrd, who once boasted he would deliver $1 billion in public-works to his home state before he was through.
GET A FEEL FOR WHAT'S COMING! THE OLETC INTRODUCES ITS LASER DISSUADER!
Project Title: The Laser DissuaderT Non-Lethal Weapon
Operational performance of the concept was first successfully tested by the U.S. Marines who used early Saber 203 devices for Force Protection in the extraction of UN Forces from Somalia. A very limited demonstration was performed at a Mock Prison Riot at the West Virginia Penitentiary, sponsored by OLETC in April 1998. Full-fledged military operational testing for the rifle mounted Saber 203 will be conducted by the U.S. Air Force in late Summer 1998.
SEA reports that the Laser DissuaderT will be ready for market by late summer 1998. It is a follow-on product based on the Saber 203. Saber 203 is a non-lethal laser device built to be used in the military M-203 Grenade Launcher. This device was developed for the US Air Force by SEA under a Small Business Innovative Research contract (SBIR). The technology was initially developed by SEA for a set of nuclear weapons security devices under an SBIR contract with the Defense Nuclear Agency.
THE LOCAL POLICE WANT THESE NON-LETHAL WEAPONS, SAYS NLECTC.
"Did They Have to Die? Police Explore Less Than Lethal Weapons"
Associated Press (06/19/00); Cabrera, Luis © 2000
Police are exploring new weapons that offer cops an alternative to ending
armed and aggressive standoffs. Law enforcement departments are researching non-lethal weapons, and officers are now being trained and equipped with Taser guns and beanbags fired from shotguns. Critics say that non-lethal weapons like the beanbag guns were used in situations and were not effective in taking down suspects, and these weapons may not be reliable when cops are in life-threatening situations. Many law enforcement departments are optimistic about the new technology's ability to save lives.
Orange County's Force of Technology: Less Crime With Fewer Cops. Los Angeles Times (06/18/00) P. 1; Roug, Louise
California's Orange County cities have half the number of police officers
per capita than the national average, yet still recorded some of the biggest
declines in crime over the last decade. Federal money is now being spent on computers and sophisticated equipment instead of more officers. The county's police departments have shifted by relying more on technology and lower-paid civilian employees to handle time-consuming tasks that officers once performed. Expenditures on law enforcement technology has proven to be cost-effective, and more efficient than hiring more officers because crime rates have dropped. Counties that have increased officers per capita have not witnessed a significant drop in crime. Law enforcement departments are trying to balance between police officers and resources to become more effective.
The Casolaro files. By C.D. Stelzer (copyright 1996)
....WHISPERS OF GOLD AND SENATOR BYRD
"It was very eerie. We were sitting there in the Hilton. It was raining. It was sort of this secluded area with this light over us and the waitresses were staring. By the time I walked outside,I was a wreck. I called (William) Hamilton and told him never,never, never again am I going to be around these crazy people." -- Lois Battistoni, aformer DOJ employee talking about the night she met with a top Justice Department official and a reporter to discuss the Danny Casolaro case.
Lois Battistoni is among those who believe someone killed Danny Casolaro. At her request, investigators for the Bua inquiry informally interviewed her in the initial
stages of that investigation, but they never returned to ask for a sworn statement. Of the
Bua report Battistoni says: "It's really a cover-up from the very beginning."
The former paralegal, who spent nine years at the DOJ between 1979 and 1988, claims knowledge of the Inslaw case from her stint at the department. But her belief that Casolaro was murdered is based on what she overheard at a meeting in the dining room of the Sheraton Hotel in Springfield, Va. The other two parties in attendance, according to Battistoni and others, were Norman E. Mixon, a high-ranking Department ofJustice official in the management and finance division, and George Williamson, a reporter who has worked for the San Francisco Chronicle and Time magazine. Williamson had arranged to meet Mixon to confirm information gathered from his high-level CIA sources, informed sources say.
Battistoni, who had been speaking to another West Coast reporter, acted as a go-between for the rendezvous. "Different things were brought up and they both concurred. They both seemed to know the same things," she says. She thought the tete-a-tete had been arranged to discuss the Hamiltons' legal battle with the DOJ, but what she learned at the dinner table came as a complete shock. "(It) was a very shilling situation for me," says Battistoni. "I had no idea it had to do with ... murders. I thought we were going to discuss Inslaw. That's not what was discussed," she says. Instead, the conversation turned toward "CIA operations in gold and the Cabazon Indians."
One person who claims knowledge of Casolaro's interests in secret gold dealings is Donald Devereux. Devereux, a Phoenix investigative reporter who has reported on
gold fencing operations in the Southwest. Devereux says Casolaro called him only two
weeks before he died to ask specific questions about gold transactions."He did not tell me what he was doing," says Devereux, but from his own investigation Devereux now speculates that Casolaro was trying to connect the shipments of Phillippine gold through the Cabazon reservation to the October Surprise conspiracy. A scheme to use massive quanities of gold -- recovered Japanese war booty - to fund U.S. convert intelligence operations was reported in a series of stories inthe Las Vegas Sun.
Based on his own knowledge of secret gold brokering, Devereux estimates the buillion deals may be worth billions of dollars. When there is that kind of money involved, "people get hurt in a hurry. There are a lot of bodies around this stuff, "Devereux alleges.
At the meeting between Williamson and Mixon, Battistoni recalls hearing one name repeatedly. "I kept hearing Earl Brian's name," she says. The two men talked about vast sums of money, as much as a billion of dollars, according to Battistoni. There were points when she was asked politely to leave the table so Williamson and Mixon could discuss even more confidential information, Battistoni says. According to Battistoni, she saw Mixon hand over a briefcase full of documents to Williamson.
Mixon and Williamson also talked about Danny Casolaro's death, Battistoni says. What she says she heard is this: "The Martinsburg, (W. Va.) police called Sen. Byrd's
office after the alleged suicide." Sen. Robert C. Byrd is the senior senator from West Virginia. Battistoni's says her understanding of the conversation is that the police were instructed to clean up the motel room through Byrd's office.
In regard to this allegation, a spokesperson for Sen. Byrd'soffice has says that "there's absolutley no truth to that." But there was at least one connection between the DOJ and Sen. Byrd's office. Barbara Videnieks - the wife of the former Inslaw contract officer at the Justice Department -- is a top aide in Sen. Byrd's office. In addition, copies of notes by William Turner, one of Casolaro's sources, indicate that the late writer planned to meet in Martinsburg with relatives of "Ms. V, plus one or two others
from SB off [Sen. Byrd's office]." A source who wishes to remain anonymous says he has been told that there are at least two relatives of Barbara Videnieks who work in Sen. Byrd's office.
Turner has claimed to have met with Casolaro in Martinsburg the day before his death to deliver sensitive papers that William Hamilton says pertained to Inslaw. Hamilton says the documents, which allegedly disappeared at the time of Casolaro's
death, were to be shown to the sources from Sen. Byrd's office. The relevance of this allegation is completely dismissed by a spokesperson for Byrd. "The link that you are trying to make is preposterous, and this office has no further comment," she says...
Since the meeting that Battistoni attended, reporter George Williamson has withdrawn from pursuing the story. When finally contacted, Williamson refused to
discuss the alleged meeting on the grounds that he had sworn confidentiality to his source. Reached at his DOJ office, Mixon respectfully declined to comment, saying all telephone conversations are recorded at the Justice Department. ...
SENATOR BIRD AND CATHY O'BRIEN - TRUE OR FALSE?
Sex, Lies, and Mind Control
by Cathy O'Brien © 1999
Nowhere to run to When I was 13 years old, I was dedicated to a man who would become my mind control owner. That's US Senator Robert C. Byrd. Senator Byrd had been in office as long as I had been alive. Senator Byrd is head of our US Senate
appropriations committee. He holds the purse strings for our country. And I know from my victimization under his control that he had absolutely no concern for the American public. In stead he was interested in appropriating our money to usher in the NWO. Senator Byrd's perversions were extremely brutal and just being sexually assaulted by him was sufficient to traumatize my mind to readily accept anything that he instructed me to do.
One of the things that he instructed me to do was to attend the Muskegon Catholic Central High School -- which was very much involved in this ClA/Jesuit merger of mind control information. Through implementation of trauma in the school system, a person such as myself would photographically record whatever I was taught. I got all A's but I didn't gain any information I could use. I couldn't think to use anything that I had
learned, but I was recording facts and that's what they were interested in.
I wasn't the only one. Muskegon Catholic Central had many students that had been severely traumatized and subjected to occult rituals. Some were groomed to participate in organized sports. After all, a person suffering from DID had no limitations on what they thought they could accomplish in sports. Since they had compartmen- talized memory, they "forgot" how tired they were. Therefore they were always fresh and ready for more with a real high energy level and extreme endurance. Catholic Central was first in the state and first in the nation in sports throughout those years.
It was while I was in Catholic Central that Gerald Ford became President. This devastated me. Not that I could even think about it by that time, because I couldn't. I could only sense that if Gerald Ford was President, then people everywhere actually condoned child abuse and mind control.
I was conditioned to believe that I had no place to run or hide--a theme that's widely used on traumatized people all the way from the lowest level of occultism. Even in sexual abuse, the children are told "we're watching you--there's no place to run and no place to hide." That's the theme that therapists hear many times over.
On a CIA level, of course, they were using that same theme. And I felt totally trapped. Who was I going to turn to? I couldn't turn to my parents. I couldn't turn to my church. I couldn't turn to my school or local politicians--and now I couldn't even turn to the President of the United States. I felt totally helpless and totally locked in--which was exactly what they wanted.
However, now that I'm in control of my own mind and can think for myself, I know that I do have a place to run--and it's right at them!
Meaner and Mena
Since I was primed and ready for mind control programming, I was taken to Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma. Tinker Air Force Base is where many of Johnston's mercenaries had been programmed and I became a "tinker belle"--mind control programmed through high voltage, sleep, food and water deprivation, and subconscious mind manipulation. I was programmed to carry out my first trial run operation. This involved carrying a large quantity of cocaine that had been brought back in on one of those airplanes, to load it up and carry it to a remote area in Washita Forest in the neighboring state of Arkansas. It was 1978. I've since identified this area as the Mena Airport....
It was my experience during the Reagan/Bush administration that Ronald Reagan followed orders from George Bush ! Look at George Bush's background. He began with the United Nations, then he went on to head our CIA and then he ran our country right into NWO controls through three administrations: Ronald Reagan followed orders from George Bush; then George Bush was in office; and I know for a fact that Bill Clinton follows orders from George Bush. Not robotically - but because he also believes in mind control of the masses.
In 1984 I was at the Lampe, Missouri at a CIA near-death trauma center. It's an enormous cocaine hub, but more importantly a sophisticated mind control center to program paramilitary--guys who are used in paramilitary operations. The Lampe operation was just across the Arkansas border and was very much a part of Clinton's operation. It was there in 1984 that I ever heard (and photographically recorded after severe trauma) Bill Clinton and George Bush talking (they're friends), and George Bush said how when the American people become disillusioned with Republicans in control of our country and running it into the NWO, that Bill Clinton as a Democrat would be put in office.
Obviously, it happened according to plan. But I tell you this so that you know this has nothing to do with party lines. this is not about Democrats or Republicans. This is about NWO controls -- those who are for them and those who are against them....
There has been sufficient public out cry to make change were it not for the fact that the governors have been corrupted. Not all governors have been corrupted. I don't know that all governors even know exactly what OBE is all about. But I am aware that Senator Byrd decided that he would put the states in a financial position whereby they would be forced to accept OBE in order to get any kind of federal funding for education. For this purpose, this year every governor in the United States but one accepted OBE into the
school systems. Only Alabama's Governor James said the federal government has no business meddling in the minds of our children. We must be aware of OBE and mind control on all levels for our children's' sake.
SOME LIGHT ON THIS SITUATION.
At first, "mind control " sounds scary and seems to offer more evidence of government's unassailable power. But when you stop to think about it, despite the enormous resources in time and manpower that were allegedly spent by government to control Ms. O'Brien 's mind, she got free. Mind control failed to control.
Further -- just as Ms. O 'Brien claims that much information on mind control was discovered by the European Crusaders (1000-1200 A.D.), Spain's Inquisitors (1480-1800 A.D.), and Germany's Nazi's (1939-1945 A.D.) -- her associate Mark Phillips claims that the foundation for mind control was found in ancient copies of the "Egyptian Book of the Dead " (written centuries, perhaps millennia, before the birth of Christ). Given that huge historical advantage, if mind control were as potent as some fear, we might reasonably expect Egypt, Italy, England, Spain, or Germany to rule the
world. Do they? No. The Crusaders lost, the Inquisitors lost, and the Nazi's lost, and the Egyptians haven't won anything since they built the Pyramids. More recently, the mighty U.S -- with its alleged "masters of mind control" -- lost in Viet Nam. Apparently, there 's a common denominator among governments that allegedly used mind control .. they're losers headed for destruction.
Therefore, mind control may be an interesting, even dangerous parlor trick but it offers no sustainable, cost-effective ability to suppress the power of a living mind and spirit.
It may be reasonable to be concerned about "mind control", but it is unreason able to be fearful. If you don't believe me, ask the Pharoahs, Crusaders, Inquisitors, Storm Troopers of history or the CIA guys that ran Operation Phoenix in Viet Nam. "Mind control" is razzle dazzle, "secret weapon " b.s. used as a last resort by morally bankrupt governments desperate to try anything to avoid impending doom and/or shore up their
troops' sagging morale. If our government uses mind control, it's only more evidence that they can't even win the "hearts and minds" of their own people.
I suspect that our spirits, much like "unalienable rights", are God-given and beyond the destructive capability of any mortal or government. To the extent any government tries to destroy its own people's spirits, that government attempts the impossible and must not only fail but probably perish.
CRYPTOSPORIDIUM AND AIDS.

AIDS cure agent relating to cryptosporidium as well as candidiasis and other bad intestinal flora.
Immediate first-aid for AIDS and resultant degenerative illnesses, elements of proven effective long-term treatment.
Intestinal cryptosporidiosis is characterized by severe watery diarrhea but may, alternatively, be asymptomatic. Pulmonary and tracheal cryptosporidiosis in humans is associated with coughing and frequently a low-grade fever; these symptoms are often accompanied by severe intestinal distress.
Infectious dose--Less than 10 organisms and, presumably, one organism can initiate an infection. The mechanism of disease is not known; however, the intracellular stages of the parasite can cause severe tissue alteration.
Cryptosporidium sp. could occur, theoretically, on any food touched by a contaminated food handler. Incidence is higher in child day care centers that serve food. Fertilizing salad vegetables with manure is another possible source of human infection. Large outbreaks are associated with contaminated water supplies.
Intestinal cryptosporidiosis is self-limiting in most healthy individuals, with watery diarrhea lasting 2-4 days. In some outbreaks at day care centers, diarrhea has lasted 1 to 4 weeks. To date, there is no known effective drug for the treatment of cryptosporidiosis. Immunodeficient individuals, especially AIDS patients, may have the disease for life, with the severe watery diarrhea contributing to death. Invasion of the
pulmonary system may also be fatal.
Oocysts are shed in the infected individual's feces. Sugar flotation is used to concentrate the organisms and acid fast staining is used to identify them. A commercial kit is available that uses fluorescent antibody to stain the organisms isolated from feces. Diagnosis has also been made by staining the trophozoites in intestinal and biopsy specimens. Pulmonary and tracheal cryptosporidiosis are diagnosed by biopsy and staining.

"An important, strenuously argued contribution to the case against our nation's scandalous narcotics policies and laws. Particularly valuable are the encyclopedic historical and anthropological perspectives which the author brings to bear on our cultural crisis. His scathing review of today's unjust confiscation and sentencing statutes is balanced by encouraging and badly-needed statistics about the successes of alternatives, such as the Dutch decriminalization program."

INSLAW'S EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:
Thanks to Nato Wife for the tip here.
The following information has been given to each member of the House Judiciary Committee and was placed on the Internet in electronic form by Bill Hamilton of Inslaw Corporation. The complete document with supporting details may be obtained from: Inslaw 1125 15th Street, NW Washington, DC 20005-2707 Telephone (202) 828-8638
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Eleven years ago, the Justice Department's PROMIS Project Manager arranged for an Israeli Government official to visit INSLAW for a PROMIS briefing and demonstration. The Justice Department told INSLAW that the visitor was a prosecuting attorney from the Israeli Ministry of Justice who would be overseeing a project to computerize the public prosecution offices in Israel. Three months after the visit, the Justice Department secretly turned over to a representative of the Israeli Government a copy of the PROMIS software, according to a contemporaneous internal Justice Department memorandum made public by the House Judiciary Committee in its September 1992 Investigative Report, The INSLAW Affair.
INSLAW followed up on this disclosure by the House Judiciary Committee by contacting the Israeli Ministry of Justice in Tel Aviv about the "prosecuting attorney" who had visited INSLAW ten years earlier in February 1983. After obtaining information from the Ministry about the current location of the prosecuting attorney, INSLAW consulted with two journalists in Tel Aviv. One journalist interviewed the now-retired prosecuting attorney at his home in Jerusalem. The prosecuting attorney bore no resemblance to the visitor to INSLAW and was unfamiliar with some important aspects of the visit to INSLAW, although he claimed to have been the February 1983 Israeli visitor to INSLAW. The other journalist told INSLAW that the prosecuting attorney's name has been used in the past as a pseudonym for Rafi Eitan, a legendary Israeli intelligence official.
INSLAW employees who had met with the Israeli visitor in February 1983 attempted to identify the visitor from a police-style photographic line-up. The process was videotaped in the studio of a national television network. The photographic line-up confirmed that the visitor to INSLAW was neither a prosecutor nor an attorney, but Rafi Eitan. At the time of the visit to INSLAW, Rafi Eitan was Director of LAKAM, a super-secret agency in the Israeli Ministry of Defense responsible for collecting scientific and technical intelligence information from other countries through espionage.
Rafi Eitan became well known in the United States, several years after his visit to INSLAW, when Jonathan Pollard, a U.S. Navy civilian intelligence analyst, was arrested and charged with spying for Rafi Eitan and Israeli intelligence. During the interim between Rafi Eitan's visit to INSLAW and the delivery of a copy of PROMIS to an Israeli official, the Government's PROMIS Project Manager and others in the Justice Department pressured INSLAW to deliver to the Justice Department, without any protection for INSLAW's property rights, the proprietary version of PROMIS that was not required to be delivered under INSLAW's PROMIS Implementation Contract.
The particular proprietary version of PROMIS that was the object of this Justice Department pressure was the version that INSLAW had demonstrated to the Israeli Government visitor and that operates on a VAX computer. INSLAW was operating this proprietary version of PROMIS on a computer at INSLAW's offices and using it to support each of the 10 largest U.S. Attorneys' Offices, via telephone lines. Under its three-year contract, INSLAW was to provide this PROMIS computer time-sharing service on an interim basis until each of the U.S. Attorneys' Offices acquired its own computer, and INSLAW thereafter was to install an earlier, public domain version of PROMIS on those computers.
The Justice Department explained this pressure to obtain immediate delivery of a copy of the proprietary VAX version of PROMIS by a suddenly-professed concern about INSLAW's financial viability. In response to this professed concern, INSLAW offered to place a copy of the VAX version of PROMIS in escrow in a local bank; that would have been the accepted industry remedy for the professed problem. The Justice Department, however, rejected INSLAW's escrow offer and insisted on immediately obtaining physical custody of a copy of the proprietary VAX version of PROMIS. The Justice Department eventually accomplished its objective of physical custody of a copy of the VAX version of PROMIS through a bilateral modification to the contract in which the Government committed itself, inter alia, not to disseminate the proprietary version of PROMIS outside the U.S. Attorneys' Offices.
This was the April 11, 1983 Modification #12 to the PROMIS Implementation Contract. None of the U.S. Attorneys' Offices had a VAX computer, without which it is impossible to use a VAX version of PROMIS. Two lower federal courts found that the Justice Department entered into Modification #12 in order to "steal" the proprietary version of PROMIS "through trickery, fraud and deceit." The House Judiciary Committee independently confirmed those findings in the course of a three- year-long investigation.
Rafi Eitan emerged again in the INSLAW affair in 1986 when INSLAW filed a lawsuit against the Justice Department over the theft of the PROMIS software. INSLAW's lead litigation counsel was fired by his law firm amid secret communications between the law firm and the two highest officials of the U.S. Justice Department. The Attorney General stated under oath and the Deputy Attorney General claimed to the Senate that the secret discussions were about the INSLAW case; the law firm claimed to the press that the secret discussions were about its concurrent representation in the Jonathan Pollard-Rafi Eitan espionage case.
In May 1986, three years to the month after the Justice Department secretly turned over a copy of PROMIS to an Israeli Government official, INSLAW and senior partners in the law firm that was then serving as INSLAW's litigation counsel reviewed a complaint, drafted by INSLAW's lead counsel, for the lawsuit against the Justice Department about the theft of the proprietary version of PROMIS. The complaint contained over 50 references to Jensen; included was a 23-paragraph section that described the "personal involvement" of then Deputy Attorney General D. Lowell Jensen in the INSLAW affair, beginning with Jensen's tenure as Assistant Attorney General for the Criminal Division during the first several years of the Reagan Administration. The law firm immediately rejected the complaint that had been drafted by the lead counsel and set about to redraft the complaint in its entirety, assigning two additional lawyers to the INSLAW case for that purpose. These lawyers soon produced a new complaint that omitted every reference to the role of D. Lowell Jensen. Prior to the filing of the revised complaint in U.S. Bankruptcy Court, the lead counsel inserted, at INSLAW's insistence, a single parenthetical reference to Jensen's role.
In October 1986, three months after INSLAW filed its lawsuit, the law firm fired INSLAW's lead counsel who had by then been a partner in the firm for 10 years. The lead counsel told INSLAW at the time that he had been fired for naming Jensen in the complaint. He also told INSLAW at the time that the Managing Partner had stated that Senior Partner Leonard Garment had instigated the firing. On October 6, 1986, one week before Leonard Garment and the other members of the law firm's Senior Policy Committee met to vote on the decision to expel INSLAW's lead counsel from the firm, Garment had a social luncheon regarding INSLAW with Deputy Attorney General Arnold Burns. Garment never disclosed this fact either to INSLAW's lead counsel or to INSLAW. Burns had succeeded Jensen as Deputy Attorney General in the summer of 1986 when Jensen left the Justice Department to become a U.S. District Court Judge in San Francisco.
During the luncheon, Burns complained to Garment about the litigation strategy that INSLAW's lead counsel was pursuing in its lawsuit against the Department and signaled to Garment his willingness to discuss a settlement, according to Burns' later disclosures to the Senate Permanent Investigations Subcommittee. Attorney General Meese also talked to Garment in October 1986 about INSLAW and about Garment's conversation with Burns relating to INSLAW, according to later sworn Justice Department responses to INSLAW interrogatories.
In early 1988, in statements to the press, Garment disclaimed any recollection of a discussion about INSLAW with Deputy Attorney General Burns and insisted that his October 1986 discussion with Attorney General Meese had been about Israel, not INSLAW. Moreover, Garment elaborated on this claim, reportedly telling at least one journalist that it was a discussion of a "back channel" communication that Garment had had with the Government of Israel about the Pollard case, which Garment described to the journalist as a national security problem affecting both Israel and the U.S. Justice Department. The Israeli Government had retained Garment in an effort to prevent the indictment by the U.S. Justice Department of other Israeli officials involved in the Pollard espionage scandal.
The central role of Rafi Eitan and Israeli intelligence in both the INSLAW affair and the Pollard espionage scandal may account for why Meese and Burns characterized the October 1986 discussions with Garment as having to do with INSLAW, while Garment insisted they were really about a national security problem of concern to both Israel and the U.S. Justice Department. When Garment's law firm fired INSLAW's lead counsel, it agreed to make severance payments to him in excess of half-a-million dollars and contractually bound him to secrecy about the severance.
Soon after firing INSLAW's lead counsel, the law firm, which had, by then, been representing INSLAW for almost a year, suddenly claimed to have discovered fatal deficiencies in the evidence available to prove the Justice Department's 1983 theft of PROMIS. The law firm presented INSLAW with a written ultimatum to concede to the Justice Department on that question or find new litigation counsel. INSLAW found new litigation counsel and proved in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court and the U.S. District Court that the Justice Department had stolen the PROMIS software in 1983. A former Israeli intelligence official, Ari Ben Menashe, published a book in the fall of 1992 entitled Profits of War, that contains specific claims about Rafi Eitan and the PROMIS software, many of which are plausible in view of the aforementioned facts. According to the author, a high-ranking member of the White House National Security Council staff was personally involved in the delivery of a copy of the proprietary version of PROMIS to Rafi Eitan during a visit by Rafi Eitan to Washington, DC in the early 1980's.
Robert McFarlane, who during the relevant period was Deputy National Security Advisor to President Ronald Reagan, and Earl W. Brian, a private businessman who had been a member of the California cabinet of Governor Ronald Reagan, secretly presented INSLAW's proprietary software to Rafi Eitan, according to the author. The objective of the alleged White House gift of INSLAW's software to Rafi Eitan and Israeli intelligence was for Israeli intelligence, through sales conducted by cutout companies, to disseminate PROMIS to foreign intelligence agencies, law enforcement agencies, and international commercial banks so that PROMIS could function in those target organizations as an electronic Trojan horse for Allied signal intelligence agencies, according to the author. Among the individuals whose companies served as cutouts for the illegal dissemination of PROMIS by Israeli intelligence, according to the author, were Earl W. Brian and the late British publisher, Robert Maxwell.
Earl W. Brian, for example, allegedly sold the proprietary version of PROMIS to Jordanian military intelligence, so that Israeli signal intelligence could surreptitiously access the computerized Jordanian dossiers on Palestinians. When INSLAW sought redress in the federal courts in 1986 for the Justice Department's 1983 theft of PROMIS, Israeli intelligence intervened to obstruct justice, according to the author. While employed in Tel Aviv by Israeli military intelligence, Ben Menashe claims to have seen a wire transfer of $600,000 to Earl W. Brian for use in financing a severance agreement between INSLAW's fired lead counsel and his law firm. Rafi Eitan drew the funds from a slush fund jointly administered by U.S. and Israeli intelligence, and Earl W. Brian was, in turn, to relay the money to Leonard Garment, according to the author. In a meeting at the Justice Department on December 16, 1993, INSLAW presented a sensitive document, authored by a self-evidently credible person, offering, under appropriate circumstances, to make available evidence corroborative of significant elements of Ben Menashe's published claims.
Another aspect of the role of Israeli intelligence in the INSLAW affair is its alleged use of Robert Maxwell as a cutout. Maxwell's role as a cutout for a foreign nation's sale of computer software has been implicitly acknowledged by the actions of the FBI. Robert Maxwell's dissemination of computer software was the subject of an FBI foreign counterintelligence investigation in 1984. Ten years later, in January 1994, INSLAW obtained, under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), 18 pages relating to an investigation on this subject in New Mexico in June 1984. The FBI furnished the documents to INSLAW in response to a FOIA request for documents relating to Maxwell's involvement in "the dissemination, marketing or sale of computer software systems, including but not limited to the PROMIS computer software product, between 1983 and 1992." The FBI heavily redacted the 18 pages and ascribed the redactions to the secrecy requirements of national security.
One month before the FBI released the documents to INSLAW, it partially reclassified two of the pages that had been officially declassified in their entirety one year earlier. The FBI redacted the newly reclassified portions in the copies given to INSLAW. Robert Maxwell also developed a business relationship during the latter half of the 1980's with two computer systems executives from the Meese Justice Department, at least one of whom had responsibilities relating to the proprietary version of PROMIS. Robert Maxwell set up a tiny publishing company in McLean, Virginia, in August 1985. That company then hired two senior computer systems executives from a unit of the Meese Justice Department that operated the proprietary version of PROMIS. One was the Director of the Justice Data Center, the Justice Department's own internal computer time-sharing facility where the proprietary IBM version of PROMIS was operating for one of the legal divisions under license from INSLAW.
The Director of the Justice Data Center resigned his estimated $90,000-a-year Senior Executive Service position to become Vice President for Technical Services at the six-employee start-up national defense publishing company owned by Robert Maxwell. In piecing together the puzzle of the Government's theft of the proprietary version of PROMIS from INSLAW, we have noted the role of the Government's PROMIS Project Manger in sending Rafi Eitan to INSLAW under false pretenses and the alleged role of a senior White House National Security official in giving the proprietary version of PROMIS to Rafi Eitan.
The missing piece to the puzzle appears to be the piece that links the actions of the Justice Department's PROMIS Project Manager with the alleged actions of the senior White House National Security official. Based on the available evidence, the missing piece appears to be D. Lowell Jensen, who was Assistant Attorney General for the Criminal Division at the time of the theft. Jensen pre-approved virtually every decision taken by the Government's PROMIS Project Manager under INSLAW's contract, according to the latter's sworn testimony to the House Judiciary Committee. Jensen engineered INSLAW's problems with the Justice Department through specified top Criminal Division aides in order to give the PROMIS business to unidentified "friends," according to Justice Department officials whose statements and backgrounds INSLAW summarized in its July 11, 1993 rebuttal. At the time of the 1983 theft, Jensen in the Criminal Division and Edwin Meese at the White House were planning to award a massive sweetheart contract to unidentified "friends" for the installation of PROMIS in every litigation office of the Justice Department, according to statements made in June 1983 by a Justice Department whistleblower to the staff of a Senator on the Judiciary Committee. The award was allegedly to take place once Meese left the White House to become Attorney General. Jensen and Meese had been close friends since the 1960's when they served together in the Alameda County, California, District Attorney's Office. INSLAW has repeatedly given the Justice Department the names of senior Criminal Division officials under Jensen who either allegedly helped him implement the malfeasance against INSLAW or who allegedly witnessed it. On more than one occasion, INSLAW summarized for the Justice Department the circumstantial evidence that is at least partially corroborative of these allegations.
Based on warnings from confidential informants in the Justice Department, INSLAW has repeatedly emphasized to the Justice Department the absolute necessity of placing these officials under oath before interrogating them, as well as the importance of a public statement by the Attorney General guaranteeing no reprisals. More than five years have elapsed since INSLAW began furnishing this information to the Justice Department. Not one of these Criminal Division officials has, it appears, ever been interrogated under oath regarding the INSLAW affair. And no Attorney General has seen fit to issue a public statement to Justice Department employees making it clear that the Attorney General wishes employees who have information about the INSLAW affair to come forward, and giving Justice Department employees the public assurance that reprisals will not be tolerated.
One of the senior Criminal Division officials who allegedly knows the whole story of Jensen's malfeasance against INSLAW is Mark Richard, the career Deputy Assistant Attorney General who has responsibility for intelligence and national security matters. In May 1988, the Chief Investigator of the Senate Judiciary Committee told INSLAW that a trusted source, who was in a position to observe Jensen's malfeasance, had identified Mark Richard as someone who not only knew the whole story but who was also "pretty upset" about it. One of the organizational units that reports to Mark Richard is the Office of Special Investigations (OSI). OSI's publicly-declared mission is to locate and deport Nazi war criminals. The Nazi war criminal program is, however, a front for the Justice Department's own covert intelligence service, according to disclosures recently made to INSLAW by several senior Justice Department career officials. One undeclared mission of this covert intelligence service has been the illegal dissemination of the proprietary version of PROMIS, according to information from reliable sources with ties to the U.S. intelligence community.
INSLAW has, moreover, obtained a copy of a 27-page Justice Department computer printout, labeled "Criminal Division Vendor List." That list is actually a list of the commercial organizations and individuals who serve as "cutouts" for this secret Justice Department intelligence agency, according to intelligence community informants and a preliminary analysis of the computerized list. A significant proportion of the 100-plus companies on the list appear to be in the computer industry. The Justice Department's secret intelligence agency also has its own "proprietary" company that employs scores of agents of diverse nationalities, as well as individuals who appear to be regular employees of various departments and agencies of the U.S. Government or members of the U.S. Armed Forces, according to several sources. According to written statements of which INSLAW has obtained copies, another undeclared mission of the Justice Department's covert agents was to insure that investigative journalist Danny Casolaro remained silent about the role of the Justice Department in the INSLAW scandal by murdering him in West Virginia in August 1991.
INSLAW has acquired copies of two relevant written statements furnished to a veteran investigative journalist by a national security operative of the U.S. Government, several months after Casolaro's death. The individual who reportedly transmitted these written statements to the journalist by fax has testified under oath to being a national security operative for the FBI and the CIA. Partial corroboration for his claimed work for the FBI is reportedly available in the sworn testimony of several FBI agents during a recent criminal prosecution. One statement purportedly reflects the operative's personal knowledge and belief that Casolaro was killed by agents of the Justice Department and is allegedly written in the operative's own hand. The other statement is an excerpt from a typewritten set of questions and answers. The questions were posed to a senior CIA official by the investigative journalist; the answers, purportedly from the senior CIA official, were reportedly sent by fax to the journalist by the national security operative, who was acting as an intermediary.
The following is the pertinent question and answer:
Q. Do you have any information for [San Francisco-based investigative journalist] George Williamson yet regarding the Danny Casolaro matter?
A. Yes. Casolaro appears to have been working as a free lance writer at the time of his death and was gathering material for a book. He was investigating the INSLAW case. He was on the trail of information that could have made the whole matter public and led to the exposure of the Justice Department and their involvement in the matter. Apparently he was very close to obtaining that information. We do not agree with the consensus of opinion among the reporters who looked into the matter, that Casolaro committed suicide. Casolaro was murdered by agents of the Justice Department to insure his silence. The entire matter was handled internally by Justice, and our agency was not involved.
Although these allegations are profoundly disturbing, there is significant circumstantial evidence that bears on the plausibility of the allegations. As reported in INSLAW's July 11, 1993 rebuttal, Casolaro was scheduled to have his final, follow-up meeting with two sources on INSLAW in West Virginia the night before he died, and one of those sources was connected to the Justice Department's PROMIS Contracting Officer. As reported in this addendum, the meeting between Casolaro and those sources had allegedly been brokered by a covert intelligence operative for the U.S. Government, an Army Special Forces Major. This individual appeared in Casolaro's life during the final several weeks and introduced himself to Casolaro as one of the closest friends of the Government's PROMIS Contracting Officer. Finally, during the final week of his life, Casolaro told at least five confidants something that he had never told a single one of them at any other time during his year-long, full-time investigation: that he had just broken the INSLAW case.
The preceding facts and the following information are noted in the July 11, 1993 rebuttal. Shortly after Casolaro was found dead, the aforementioned covert intelligence operative allegedly made the following statement, in words or substance, to a woman who had been present during several of his meetings with Casolaro: What Danny Casolaro was investigating is a business. If you don't want to end up like Danny or like the journalist who died a horrific death in Guatemala, you'll stay out of this. Anyone who asks too many questions will end up dead. Not all of the secret Justice Department dissemination of PROMIS has gone through Rafi Eitan and Israeli intelligence. For example, in June 1983, the month after the Justice Department secretly conveyed a copy of PROMIS to a representative of the Government of Israel, it also, in partnership with the National Security Agency (NSA), secretly delivered a copy of PROMIS to the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, according to a recent series of articles in the American Banker's International Banking Regulator.
The Justice Department and its NSA partner conveyed a copy of the proprietary VAX version of PROMIS to the two international financial institutions so that the NSA could electronically monitor their operations. This is the same version of PROMIS that the Justice Department had asked INSLAW to demonstrate to Rafi Eitan in February 1983. As noted earlier, the Justice Department had committed itself not to disseminate the proprietary version of PROMIS outside the U.S. Attorneys' Offices. A second example is the alleged secret Justice Department conveyance of a copy of the proprietary IBM version of PROMIS to the CIA.
In September 1993, CIA Director R. James Woolsey told INSLAW counsel Elliot L. Richardson that the CIA is using a PROMIS software system that it acquired from the NSA and that is identical to the PROMIS software that NSA uses internally and that is described on page 80 of the Bua Report. The application domain of the NSA's PROMIS is the mission critical application of tracking the intelligence information it produces. The NSA's PROMIS operates on an IBM mainframe computer. This latest CIA disclosure underscores the difficulty the CIA has had in accounting for its PROMIS. The CIA initially told the House Judiciary Committee in writing that it had been unable to locate internally any PROMIS software.
Approximately one year later, the CIA wrote again to the House Judiciary Committee, stating that components of the CIA were operating a software system called PROMIS but that it had purchased its PROMIS from a company in Massachusetts. That PROMIS operates on a personal computer with project management as the application domain. In both written reports, the CIA inexplicably failed to mention the PROMIS that operates on an IBM mainframe computer at the CIA and that is critical to the CIA's primary mission of producing intelligence information. The third example is the alleged Justice Department secret dissemination of PROMIS to the NSA. Although the NSA is quoted in the Bua Report as claiming that it internally developed its PROMIS, the Toronto Globe and Mail reported in May 1986 that the NSA had purchased a PROMIS software system from a Toronto-based company. As shown in Exhibit A to INSLAW's July 11, 1993 rebuttal, Earl Brian's Hadron, Inc. sold INSLAW's PROMIS to the same Toronto company in 1983, in a transaction that also allegedly involved Edwin Meese, then Counselor to the President.
The final example concerns the allegation that the Justice Department secretly distributed the proprietary VAX version of PROMIS to the U.S. Navy for an intelligence application on board nuclear submarines. The Navy confirmed to a reporter for Navy Times that it has a PROMIS software system and that it operates its PROMIS on a VAX computer in support of its nuclear submarines. The Navy's Undersea Systems Center in Portsmouth, Rhode Island, furthermore, notified the reporter in writing that its engineers had locally developed this VAX version of PROMIS; that its PROMIS is installed only at its land-based facility at Newport, Rhode Island; and that its PROMIS has never been installed on board any nuclear submarine.
INSLAW has, however, obtained a document published by the same Undersea Systems Center in 1987 that reveals that its PROMIS is not only operating at the land-based "test facility" in Newport, but is also operational on board both attack class and "boomer" class submarines. The Navy, like the CIA and the NSA, clearly has difficulty in giving a credible accounting of its PROMIS software. The Justice Department continues to try to convince INSLAW, Congress, the press and the American public that the INSLAW affair is, at best, a government contract dispute which could have been resolved long ago if INSLAW had submitted the dispute to the only forum deemed appropriate by the Justice Department: an Executive Branch Contract Appeals Board. What the evidence summarized in this addendum demonstrates, however, is that the essence of the INSLAW affair is radically different. The INSLAW affair was a premeditated, cynical and deceitful taking of INSLAW's software property by the chief law enforcement agency of the United States without due process of law and without compensation to INSLAW in violation of the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution.
They [the Hamiltons] don't know squat about how dirty that INSLAW deal was. If they ever find out half of it, they will be sickened. It is a lot dirtier for the Department of Justice than Watergate. It is not just the breadth of it, but also the depth of it. The Department of Justice has been compromised at every level. - Statements attributed to a senior Justice Department career official by the Chief Investigator of the Senate Judiciary Committee in 1988

THE RAPE OF THE ESTATES OF WIDOWS AND THE ELDERLY BY NAPA COURTS AND ITS INSIDER ATTORNEYS.
Napa Courts are a real sick trip, ripping off widows again (mind you, there is a repeat pattern). With a bee in our bonnet, we decided to review some records to see how the courts there are handling widows ... and the elderly.
A judge who calls himself a settlement judge ordered a widow to break the family trust of which she is a co-maker and turn over most of her assets to her son. The son, who has no legitimate case whatsoever, and who three times found even his appeals tossed from court, suddenly appeared with money from "partners" and brought yet another appeal. Through influence peddling, the Court of Appeal remanded the case so that the corrupt element of the lower court could run its course. This is the same court that says "Napa doesn't have criminal grand juries. They aren't permitted."
What has the son, not only an alleged but a witnessed repeated elder abuser, just done? He's used the courts to flail his own mother, aid him in his process of on-going elder abuse, aid him and the partners who manipulate him into getting everything "the partners want." The son was found to be "delusional," "irrational" and "incompetent" by a psychologist, and many professionals who were deposed.
The widow was found to be competent and fit. She is trusting, kind, and believes that her attorneys are guiding her properly, particularly also with the fees she is paying them. Each time, the big con has surfaced.
The settlement judge made an unusual decision while listening to a motion more than a year ago ... instructing counsel for the widow to "toss out the elder abuse cross-complaint or else ... this county won't hear elder abuse cases." And "there's no such thing as emotional distress ... people bring it on themselves." Great track record. No criminal grand juries. Ignore the laws (and elder abuse is also codified in the Penal Codes).
Counsel for the widow complied, tossing out her cross-suit, but never told his client. Later, the judge was on the scene for the mandatory settlement conference, only no notice of such a conference was ever sent to the widow. In fact, it was later discovered her own counsel had never posted the requisite jury fees for the trial in which she would have prevailed the following week. All the while, and rightfully so, he assured her the son had no case whatsoever. Such is also proven to be the case from the son's own admissions, evidence, the law, and case law.
When discovered, and in thorough shock, the widow sought new counsel. She hired an attorney who discovered the malpractice of her first counsel. She hired investigators who interviewed and located 20 independent witnesses to at least as many acts of elder abuse - stealing keys, turning off water, keeping her sleepless night after night with noises all night under her window, charging $32,000 to the trust for his pleasure, diverting her income, signing contracts for assets that belonged to her, and the list goes on and on. In each instance the widow took the documentary and other evidence to her counsel. Witnesses provided statements.
Years ago the widow obtained restraining orders, and when those were broken, cease and desist orders. She attempted to evict her son to protect herself, but the abusive Napa courts (politically connected to the son's "partners") chose to ignore the law completely on this one. The judge wouldn't evict the son, while aware of the restraining orders, and the fact that he himself had signed cease and desist orders based on the son's own admission that indeed he had threatened and chased his mother and called her crazy.
A new counsel appeared from a "prestigious law firm" to assist the widow. He allowed more hearings to continue, without the benefit of even having the records from prior counsel who was canned. He repeatedly told the widow he trusted the son's attorney who never lied to him and wouldn't lie to him. Sons counsel laced the proceedings with lies at an "evidentiary hearing," aided by the terminated attorney trying to cover his fanny, and with no documents available to the widow's new counsel.
It's been discovered that all the widow's new attorney has done is lie to his own client, let alone other counsel. He was specifically instructed to confront the judge about undue process, and to reverse the case, whatever it took.
So far he has failed 100% and the widow was ordered by the settlement judge who "took full jurisdiction" to turn over property. Our Constitution prohibits this type of conduct. This judge has no capacity to order anything as a settlement judge.
To boot, the son disinherited himself, and the widow has repeatedly pointed this out. Her attorneys have done nothing, stating they can't act with this suit in process! Say, buddies, the will is a matter of record and is really, really, clear as to disinheritance. How about "Take Judicial Notice" for starters, or at least put something in the record that quotes the disinheritance clause.
The son's attorney eliminated the mandated process of appearing before the lower court prior to filing the lawsuit for a reading of the will regarding the disinheritance clause. Evidently the Appeals Court assumed this procedure had been followed, that there was no disinheritance clause, and the lower courts had given the "green light" on this case.
Federal action can stop this egregious seizure of assets belonging to this woman. She has given her attorney one more try, notified him to take action in Federal court to get this matter out of the hands of the abusers both of her and of the process.
The son has had two attorneys from the same law firm. One left, though he was "of counsel" of this very large firm really raking in the bucks, to retreat to a position as an in-house counsel for a private "business" with which the son's partners are associated.
The son's other attorney suddenly left the firm this past May. No one with the firm would take over this case, according to the widow's new counsel, so the second attorney for the son is handling it "from home," having decided after about 6 years of practicing law, it's time to retire. Counsel doesn't appear to be much older than 30.
Stay tuned ... will this lovely and kind widow prevail in re-gaining control over her own property? If she doesn't, we can assure you the names behind this mob hit will be printed and they will be exposed.
Son's counsel is pressing for the judge to enter her motion, before the court since last February (though not disclosed by counsel to his client until she obtained second counsel) in the form of a judgment. Contained are such things as loved one's of the widow be barred, utilities need not be provided to the widow, a few other classic odds and ends.
(After taking the case, the new attorney later confessed, by the way, that the person in his firm who is the senior partner is an old law school buddy of the offending and offensive judge, known to make threats to ruin attorneys in this county who don't "lock step" with him. Little wonder the complicity. It was also discovered that two of the judges of three on the Appeals Court panel who remanded the case were associated with the son's partners, whose names and posturing were aptly brought to the court's attention.)
If anyone is outraged by this, and has experience at the Federal level in handling a truly worthy cause, feel free to contact NewsMakingNews. Pete Wilson put these men on the bench who have been behind numerous estate raids for the benefit of "the boys." It's time to expose them.
The Santa Rosa Diocese has been rocked by scandals for years. A number of priests have been charged with pedophile conduct, there have been huge settlements, and the Diocese has been left destitute. Archbishop Levada stepped in to oversee the Diocese by August, 1999.
The movement to save our youths from pedophile conduct emanated out of St. Mary's parish in Ukiah. It was led by the ever-faithful Sister Jane Kelly who went public on the heels of Diocesean denials in 1999.
Archbishop assured his flock he would handle any and all complaints. Out went Bishop Ziemann. Msgr. John Brenkle was appointed to oversee finances. It looked as though positive change was in the wind, and the whereabouts of $16 million would be explained. Much of it was ... paid in the form of settlements to more than 50 victims of pedophile conduct.
But the Archbishop did little to provide solace to his flock. There are still $2 million missing and Msgr. Brenkle steadfastly refused to turn over books to the Santa Rosa Police Department. Meanwhile, Rev. Keyes was sequestered, his whereabouts not disclosed for some time. Rev. Keyes is still not available to meet with the Santa Rosa Police Department. He had been overseer of the church's finances. He knows the names of the priests for whose benefit settlements were made while the priests remain in service to the Diocese.
By November, 1999 even more information was provided in the form of official complaints against three more priests. This was disclosed by "The Press Democrat" on December 11. But by January, 2000, Archbishop Levada reversed his position. He chose not to look into these matters, instead instructing complaining parties to send their "concerns" off to the Vatican!
By May, 2000 Bishop Michael Walsh who had tended Las Vegas, was appointed to head the flock in Santa Rosa. Complaints, what complaints? He's not aware of any new complaints.
On July 9 "The Press Democrat" revealed now a plan that appears designed to "cook the books" of the Diocese!
Led by Msgr. Brenkle, and taking aim at Sister Jane Kelly's St. Mary's of Ukiah, Msgr. Brenkle re-wrote St. Mary's promissory note. The news came as a total shock. St. Mary's had raised $2.5 million of the estimated $3.4 million needed to build its church several years ago. This is a hefty equity contribution by any standard.
The Diocese of Santa Rosa provided a loan of less than $1 million. The monthly payments were $4,800.
The new note increases interest to an estimated 10%, thereby increasing monthly payments to $8,000. Moreover, St. Mary's was shocked to receive the new note with no discussion, no forewarning. Msgr. Brenkle admitted he knows that St. Mary's can't make the payments, but sent the note and new terms anyway.
If Msgr. knows St. Mary's, home of the brave Sister Jane, cannot make the $4,800 per month in payments, why then did he increase the amount to $8,000 per mo? Obviously, this is to "enhance" the financial statements of the Diocese of Santa Rosa which last year received a "bail-out loan" of more than $5 million from Wells Fargo Bank. Seems that July was the month Msgr. Brenkle would have been overseeing the preparation of financial statements for an annual renewal of the Diocese's loan from Wells Fargo Bank.
On the Diocese's financial statements, the accounts receivable figure helps the bank determine a repayment plan for the Diocese. Msgr. Brenkle has just created an account receivable that shows an additional $3,200 per month coming in (the difference between the new and old monthly payment amounts from St. Mary's) -- when he knows it isn't coming in.
In a July 9, 2000 article by Ken Catudal for "The Press Democrat," Brenkle admits "We're not going to foreclose on one of our own churches... Obviously, St. Mary's is going to have to pay what it can." All of this, while knowing St. Mary's couldn't balance its books or make the $4,800 monthly interest payments on the loan due the Diocese, let alone $8,000 per month.
When a Diocese stoops to "cooking the books" as soon as the new Bishop arrives, it is little wonder that last week St. Bernard's School in Eureka announced it severed its ties, and "withdrew from the Diocese."
With the Diocese failing yet to resolve additional complaints, the school made a timely decision. Last month, the 9th Circuit ruled that indeed the Catholic Church is responsible and liable for damages caused by its priests. The opinion rightfully found that a church cannot hide behind religious protection--their priests are their employees and the church is responsible as an employer for priestly misconduct.
With the writing on the wall and new complaints (though they had to be shuttled off to Rome, evidently), others will likely follow the lead of two of the catholic schools, St. Bernard's being the second to withdraw.
What might change this trend? Parishioners have offered the following to the Diocese:
1. Clean up your house and get rid of your pedophile priests.
2. Make the names of all offending priests public - these are criminal offenses. A simple "Joe Doe has retired" isn't good enough to safeguard our children.
3. Pay damages to the victims -- be honest, admit you were wrong, and stop the cover-ups of ongoing problems.
4. Make the priests available to the Santa Rosa Police Department to aid in criminal prosecution of responsible parties.
5. Turn over your books and records. With $2 million still missing and unexplained, and the explanation for $14 million paid out based only on the word of the Diocese and its finance club, it's time for third parties to step in.
The church has to stop hiding reality. Parish members and Christians will come back and there won't be any financial problems if the Santa Rosa Diocese cleans house, and stops lying both directly and through omissions.
