      Americans Murdering Their Judges, and the US Crisis of Judicial
      Corruption by Dr Les Sachs

      In the headlines are the appalling news stories of Americans carrying
      out murderous attacks on judges and their families. In a matter of days,
      one judge was shot and killed in his own courtroom, while another judge
      had family members brutally murdered in their home.

      These news stories are, however, related to another news story, which is
      the most taboo subject of the American media - the expanding crisis of
      corruption among American judges and lawyers. At question is whether the
      deepening despair of Americans about their own legal system, is fueling
      some of these violent attacks on judges.

      Much is written now about how America's economy is resembling that of a
      banana republic, given how America is sunk in preposterous debt, and how
      the US dollar currency is sinking toward a possible collapse in the near

      But there is another way that America is also like a banana republic, in
      that its legal system - contrary to its Hollywood image - has become a
      sinkwell of secret proceedings, the jailing of the innocent, and
      political misconduct; and how it is sullied with documented corruption,
      fake trials and court fraud.

      These facts are not generally understood, because of how judicial
      corruption is the most un-reported news story in the American landscape.
      It is the category of news story which America's newspapers and media
      are most afraid to report, even when clear proof is in their hands.

      In America right now, judges - and lawyers who are protected by judges -
      can commit felony crimes in broad delight, leave the proof lying around,
      and yet avoid being prosecuted or even having their crimes be reported
      by the media. The people who work in the media see a lot of material on
      court misconduct, and yet they know this is the story of which they dare
      not speak. The lack of media coverage, in turn, encourages more judicial
      corruption, leaving millions of Americans in anger and despair.

      Confronting the secrets of US judicial corruption, is a key to
      understanding America's whole social crisis, and its role in the world
      right now. Here are some elements of this situation that you won't see
      in run-of-the-mill news reports:

      The innocent in USA courts: imprisoned, sentenced to death, losing all
      they have

      The key statistic to understanding America, is that it has over 2.2
      million prisoners (!) out of about 300 million people. This is 25 per
      cent of all the prisoners, anywhere, in the entire world. By comparison,
      the most populous nation, China, with about 1.3 billion people, only has
      a few hundred thousand prisoners, despite being denounced by the USA as
      a "repressive" country.

      1 out of every 45 working-age males (that is, not counting children or
      the elderly) is BEHIND BARS in the United States. With working-age black
      males, the figures are about 1 out of 20. This is the stuff of

      With so many Americans in jail right now, and many more having been to
      jail or on the way, the USA now has the world's biggest gulag. The
      United States of America is a giant machine for jailing people and
      making them afraid. With 2.2 million prisoners, America can be very
      casual about who it throws into prison. Estimates are that at least 5
      per cent, or over 100,000 of these prisoners, are completely innocent.
      This is well shown by the fact that over 100 of the smaller group of
      prisoners who have recently been on death row in America - actually
      sentenced to be executed - have recently been freed, innocent of the
      crime for which they were convicted.

      As it is so easy to railroad innocent people in America on capital
      murder charges, which have mandatory appeals, it is even easier to
      railroad people on lesser criminal charges, or in malicious lawsuits
      where victims lose all their money and property.

      With judges and lawyers making so many mistakes, sending so many
      innocent people to prison, and wrecking so many lives with lawsuits, the
      drive to cover-up for judicial mistakes becomes obsessive. The US legal
      system cannot function without a cover-up. But a cover-up of judicial
      misconduct, becomes an invitation for corruption and bribery and more
      misconduct, and this vicious cycle keeps escalating.

      In America's unique political landscape, the lawyers and judges have
      supreme power, both over themselves and over the political process. With
      the American theory of the "supreme" judiciary that is supposedly
      "independent" of politics, the recipe is there for a kind of "Praetorian
      Guard" mentality like in ancient Rome. In imperial Rome, the small army
      of the "Praetorian Guard" theoretically protected the emperor. But as
      the Praetorian Guard realized its power, they were able to become a law
      unto themselves, controlling the empire, even dictating to the emperor,
      and covering up for any of their own misdeeds.

      This is the role of the judges in America right now. America needs its
      judges to keep order over its own far-flung empire. America's corporate
      rulers fear to expose the misconduct of judges, lest this empire start

      Since the judges are "supreme" in America, if people realise the judges
      are crooked, a revolution would be at hand.

      US Judges as Goons for the Big Corporations

      In United States regime, most major aspects of public life are now under
      the control of the US-based multi-national corporations, who have
      effectively and openly bought and paid for everything in the American
      "system": - The corporations own most US politicians, including both of
      the two tweedledee-tweedledum "political parties", given that both the
      "Democrat" and "Republican" parties, and nearly all the politicians, get
      their funding from the same US corporate interests, despite a little bit
      of pretending to be different; - The corporations own all the major US
      media companies, who control what "news" most people see and read; - The
      corporations effectively control most of the well-known "non-profit
      organisations", who also depend on the large corporate or
      corporate-backed "donations" for their existence and income; - The
      corporations own the US elections, determining who is allowed by the
      media to be a "major candidate", and the corporations even manufacture
      the easily-hijackable "voting machines" that "count the votes" for
      people - And the corporations, above all, own the US lawyers and judges,
      via the corporate money and bribes that flow in the billions of dollars
      through US law firms, which is why they rarely lose cases among the
      "pro-business" US judges.

      The judges enforce the "law", which in the United States means the Law
      of the Big Corporations. They win, the little guy (or girl) loses.
      That's what judges and lawyers call "The Game".

      In exchange for controlling things for the benefit of the big
      corporations, US judges and lawyers are allowed to act like perverts
      with regard to the average person. They can lie, rob, cheat, steal, kill
      and destroy any mere average person or US citizen - that is what the
      judges and lawyers get, as their "reward" for running things for the
      benefit of the really rich people who are big shareholders in the big

      America needs the myth of the "rule of law", the power of the judges, to
      keep control of the political situation. But the trade-off is that the
      judges have become a law unto themselves, and the judges and lawyers in
      America have built a machine that cannot be reversed by any power
      visible on the horizon, except some kind of revolution.

      US Media Control Hiding the Judges' Crimes

      The one power that the judges in America do worry about, is that of news
      media and publicity, either of the independent kind or from outside the
      United States. Recently, the American Supreme Court judges decided in a
      close vote, to stop putting children to death, admitting they were
      influenced by world public opinion and international condemnation of
      this practice.

      The news media in America - mostly owned by large corporations who own
      everything else - has a guilty conscience about all the evidence of
      judicial misconduct that flows regularly through their offices. The
      media do not report or investigate most of these stories, even when
      conclusive proof is plopped in their lap.

      This is partly out of fear of revenge by the government and the judges,
      and partly out of a sense of a twisted theory of "patriotic duty". These
      media employees think that it is better to hide the dirty linen of the
      judges and courts, so as not to "upset the public" and "destabilise
      society". In other words, they know that the truth about the crooked US
      judges, is the stuff of revolution.

      But really, the situation is that the big media in the United States, is
      owned by the same big corporations who own the politicians and
      government, the same big corporations who pay the big law firms that
      bribe the judges so that the big companies almost always win their

      Most big corporations find themselves using American courts extensively,
      including the media companies. If any media company or US organisation
      were to independently "go after" some corrupt judges, and speak about
      judicial corruption, the fear is that the media company might well find
      itself being destroyed by the judges, as billions of dollars worth of
      lawsuits suddenly were "decided" against the corporation.

      You may not believe this yet, but the fact is that the US judges operate
      like criminal gangs. They get together and pick a target, and they can
      decide to destroy that target if they feel it is a threat, either to
      themselves or to their paymasters at the big corporations.

      Such terrors lurk in the back of the mind of independent and progressive
      journalists, perhaps even more than among the big corporate media. In
      America you never know whether you might find yourself arrested or sued
      on some trumped-up charge or accusation, if you dare to criticise the US
      legal system. US journalists have been shot dead in the street, after
      daring to write a critical article about the judges. Just "coincidence",

      Exposing a dishonest judge in America, can put you on a "black list"
      where no lawyer will protect you, even if you have lots of money to
      spend. Experience shows, over and over again, that people in the US who
      try to fight judicial corruption simply cannot find lawyers for
      themselves, even if they have money - and even though many US lawyers
      are desperately unemployed and eager for money!

      It is still (somewhat) accepted in the US, that journalists can
      criticize the President and the administrative branches of government,
      or complain about legislators. It is part of the function of
      politicians, like the President, to "take some political heat" up front,
      while the corporations run things behind the scenes.

      However, it has become extremely taboo to say much about dishonest
      judges, even in the face of ice cold proof that judges are committing
      crimes. You have proof of crimes by judges? Almost no journalist in the
      United States wants to talk with you. - That is the true reality of
      American life.

      Even though the news media in the USA are not owned by the government,
      they are not "independent" - far from it. The power of the judges
      extends to both direct and indirect control of media criticism.

      Beyond the fear, there is also a feeling among USA media and lawyers and
      the government, that drastic and terrible calamities would occur if
      judicial corruption were really investigated and exposed. As one US
      lawyer said, "If the American people found out how crooked the judges
      really are, the whole house of cards will start to crumble."

      People feel that faith in the courts - the Hollywood movie version of
      American "justice" - is what is holding the USA together. The fear is
      this: If the American people start thinking that the courts are rigged,
      and that huge amounts of people in jail are innocent, then social chaos
      will be on the horizon, and America will unravel in a mass political

      So the US media, corrupted by corporate ownership, or afraid itself of
      revenge, pretends it is doing a kind of civic duty, to limit coverage of
      judicial corruption, to those few cases where the government itself has
      already decided to prosecute some wayward judge or lawyer.

      Even in cases where US judges engage in absolutely blatant, open and
      publicly perverted misbehaviour - like the US judge who used a
      penis-pump on himself in his courtroom (quite true story) - the
      misbehaviour and crimes usually go on openly for several years, until
      the rogue judge finally offends some rich or politically powerful
      person, and the system finally slowsly takes action.

      America's FBI and Department of Justice collect files on judicial
      corruption like they collect files on everything else, but they hold
      back from acting, even in cases where they have clear enough evidence to
      bring an indictment in minutes. The law enforcement agencies in America
      blow with the political winds, and in the absence of media attention,
      they will cover up for judges, whose help they require when they need to
      win convictions on flimsy evidence. The judges who take bribes are
      gladly eager to help law enforcement railroad and convict innocent
      people. The mutual back-scratching of cops and judges is routine.

      In the meantime, the anguish of millions of Americans is increasing: The
      2.2 million prisoners and their families and loved ones; all those whose
      rights have been diminished, or their fortunes ruined; the increasing
      number of people forced to flee the USA to live in freedom and peace;
      all those living in fear in America, worried that they might be the next
      victim of the unfair American legal system. The frustration of many
      people with American courts is building, a huge but hidden story in
      American life.

      Secrecy, gag orders, and the court files you will never see

      America is increasingly a closed society, with much of its legal
      activity carried on in secret. And I'm not only talking about the secret
      detention of so many hundreds of detainees at overseas locations. Even
      in America's domestic legal system, much of the important legal activity
      is secret and hidden.

      The illusion is that America is an "open" society, because there are 24
      hour a day "news" channels on television, and because there are dozens
      of reporters and cameras outside the courthouses that are holding
      public-circus trials of a Martha Stewart or Michael Jackson or Paris
      Hilton. But the gritty day-to-day reality of life in American courts, is
      that much of what really goes on, is secret, hidden, un-published, under
      gag order or a judge's ban on freedom of speech, or simply un-reported
      by the news media, even though the media knows it has something
      important which the American people would love to hear.

      Much more than people realize, news of American court proceedings is
      blocked by gag orders, embargoed documents, and outright blatant and
      illegal bans on freedom of speech. Though there are always some supposed
      higher purposes in these gag orders, a basic function of such gag orders
      is to hide the whole dirty process of how judges and lawyers do their
      work. As judges and lawyers run the show, they are eager to use their
      powers to make sure that a lot of what they do is known only to

      The biggest category of judicial secrecy, is the nationwide American
      curtain that hides complaints of misconduct about judges and lawyers.
      Across the US, tens of thousands of complaints have been filed about
      misconduct by lawyers and judges. You can find many of them on the

      While some of these complaints are frivolous, and many of them are
      certainly emotional, a lot of these complaints are well-documented or
      have conclusive proof attached. But nearly all of these tens of
      thousands of complaints are non-published and secret, and almost nothing
      is done to act on these complaints, regardless of how valid or how well

      America's secret files of judicial and lawyer misconduct, are a gold
      mine of information on the real dirty workings of the American legal
      system. But alas, complaints about judges and lawyers are filed with -
      you guessed it - other judges and lawyers. These complaints are read and
      passed around very eagerly, as I have found by calling up judges'
      secretaries. I have tracked complaints all the way up to the Supreme
      Court building and the Supreme Court "judicial ethics" panel that was
      appointed in 2004 by USA Chief Justice Rehnquist.

      The judges read the complaints about their fellow judges, they likely
      laugh and joke with each other about the people they have harmed, and
      perhaps quietly advise each other to behave less openly like lunatics in
      the future. But what the judges almost never do, is respond in any way
      to the complaint. They don't answer, and they don't remedy the
      situation. They merely make some mental notes in case there is some
      publicity down the road.

      If there's no publicity, the judges feel they are home free. The same
      goes with complaints about American lawyers to the local Bar which
      "regulates" lawyers, which typically just covers up for lawyer
      misconduct. Unless a judge is already mad at the lawyer, the local Bar
      will usually whitewash your complaints about a lawyer, even if you have
      written proof of a lawyer committing a felony crime.

      People are surprised to learn that American judges often don't respond
      to some legal filings and complaints, and sometimes even to formal
      appeals. If you have expensive lawyers, and have political connections
      they will indeed probably answer. But otherwise, silence is common. Poor
      people in America have been strapped to a table and put to death, while
      an appeal languished unanswered by the judges.

      Fearful lawyers and fake trials

      A few celebrity trials do, indeed, dominate the American news, with all
      sorts of tiny details gaining the headlines, like Michael Jackson said
      to be coming to court in his pyjamas. But hidden beyond the "detailed
      analysis" of the celebrity circus trials, are highly significant and
      heartbreaking stories of real trials, whose details you never learn. You
      don't find out how someone's human rights were taken away, or how
      someone was railroaded on false charges, while media focuses on the
      latest "scoop" of some public circus legal proceeding.

      Americans who have not endured a court battle, have an entirely
      misleading sense of the legal system from two sources: (a) the celebrity
      circus trials and (b) fictional television shows and Hollywood movies.
      Yet the reality for most Americans in court, especially the poor and
      minorities, is something sadly different, far more sleazy and awful and

      A key factor in life in America now, is the widespread moral collapse of
      the American legal profession. America has about a million law school
      graduates, the most enormous gang of lawyers in the world. And 'gang '
      is the right word.

      Though a core group of lawyers are wealthy, from the fees supplied by
      big corporations or from a few big lawsuits; many other lawyers are
      unemployed, desperate for work. American lawyers, as a whole, are in
      fear of rocking the boat or challenging the political system, lest they
      be cast out and put among the unemployed.

      US lawyers who challenge the government or try to expose corruption,
      will face losing their jobs, and may get cited on trumped up charges
      that can lead to the loss of their ability to practice law, financial
      destruction, or even criminal indictments.

      The net result is that there are only a small handful of American
      lawyers now, who are willing to (very slightly) politically challenge
      the American government. But if you ask about lawyers who are willing to
      challenge corruption by other lawyers and judges, that handful of
      lawyers dwindles to almost complete zero. Even unemployed and broke
      lawyers are afraid to confront judicial corruption for a paying client.
      The lawyers will privately explain it is "career suicide", and just too
      plain "dangerous", to try to confront dishonest judges and other
      lawyers. The US human rights and civil liberties groups stay away from
      this area, too. - They don't want to lose their corporate funding, or
      suffer financial destruction at the hands of America's criminally
      vengeful judges in some bogus "lawsuit".

      The betrayal of clients by lawyers in the USA, is terrifyingly common.
      An example is the army of "public defenders" that "represent" poor
      people as they get convicted and sent to prison. Some of these public
      defenders are brave and good people, at heart.

      But many of them are lazy and incompetent, like the lawyers known to be
      falling asleep and snoozing in court while their assigned clients are
      convicted of murder and sentenced to death. Even worse, however, are the
      all-too-common public defenders who actually help the government to
      stage fake trials against their own clients.

      These "public defender" lawyers are often paid out of government money.
      If they do not help the government, these lawyers can be dropped from
      the register, lose their income, and be replaced by other lawyers more
      willing to be submissive. Though such lawyers may pretend to be
      "helping" their clients, they often take another role, terrifying and
      intimidating their clients into accepting unfair plea bargains and
      prison terms, even when the clients are innocent.

      Sometimes the "public defenders" really deserve to be imprisoned
      themselves. I am currently working on helping an innocent French
      citizen, Leonel Cazaco, who was sentenced to life in prison for a
      murder, even though someone else confessed to the crime. At his trial,
      Mr Cazaco's "public defenders" knew that someone else had already
      confessed to the murder, but they hid these facts from the court record
      and from Mr Cazaco himself, to help the government win the conviction.
      The French government has become active for Mr Cazaco, and his release
      is hoped for in the future.

      But US lawyers are often eager to betray and steal from clients, even
      when the clients are paying them. Lawyers will sell out and manipulate
      their clients, to benefit either the government, or the wealthier party
      that is paying them bribes. This is something lawyers call "playing The

      Actually, even very rich political people get robbed by their own
      lawyers, the lawyers pushing the wealthy people into needless legal
      cases, just so the lawyers can "milk" them for money. As long as some of
      the stolen money makes its way into the hands of the judges, even the
      rich victims usually cannot get redress against the lawyers who have
      robbed and defrauded them.

      Some of America's rogue judges, intoxicated with their sense of
      unlimited and unrestrained power, get quite cocky about committing
      felony crimes in broad daylight, leaving a trail of written evidence and
      even posting it on the internet. It is remarkable what offences they can
      commit and still remain in office, unchallenged by either news media or
      law enforcement.

      The fake US federal legal proceeding, that forced me to become a
      political refugee in Europe back in 2004, is one such set of open felony
      crimes. It is a well-known story now, with a US federal judge instantly
      banning my freedom of speech and then threatening to jail and murder me,
      while conducting a fake legal proceeding with the judge's friends posing
      both as my lawyers, and also as lawyers for a non-existent "first
      amendment civil rights charity foundation".

      The judge and his friends issued fake "court orders" claiming I "agreed"
      to the banning of my own freedom of speech for the rest of my life,
      "agreed" to the destruction of my media and publishing company, "agreed"
      to work for the rest of my life paying several hundred thousand dollars
      to the friends of the federal judge with the fake "Foundation", and
      "agreed" never to appeal all these illegal orders or the fraud of the
      fake "legal proceeding".

      - You can find more details at the website about me, and the central
      legal presentation in my 125-count 3 April 2004 US Appeals Court filing
      exposing the crimes of the US federal judges. - Needless to say, the US
      judges never answered my court filing - My court filing was too crisp
      and precise, too well-supported by proof documents, about the crimes the
      US federal judges had committed, so the US judges don't dare to reply.

      Before the US government gangsters moved in to jail and murder me, and I
      was forced to escape to Europe to save my life, I did everything I could
      to find a US lawyer to help me. Specifically so I could find a lawyer,
      in my final months in the US, I got myself hired into a $150,000 per
      year job, just so I could afford good lawyers.

      I had thought, with so much written proof in my hands of judicial
      corruption, I would be able to find some brave lawyer to expose all
      these blatant crimes. I thought I would win back my freedom and strike a
      blow for justice, just like in some Hollywood movie.

      I contacted thousands of lawyers, but no lawyer was willing to help me,
      even though I could pay them well. The lawyers agreed that I had total
      proof of judicial corruption and felony crime, and they lusted after my

      But, as the US lawyers explained to me, there is no way to "fight a
      crooked judge that's backed by the Bush government". The lawyers were
      too frightened for their own safety, to risk trying to defend me against
      a malicious federal judge and his friends. Meanwhile, the judge's
      friends began to close in on me, demanding extortion money and ready to
      carry out their threats to jail and murder me.

      Thankfully, I escaped from America, the fake and phoney "land of
      freedom", and that's why you can read these words right now, written in
      my safe haven in Europe. And then, in 2007, more than three years after
      I took refuge in Europe, the US judges conducted a new fake "legal
      proceeding" just for the purpose of creating false media to slander me,
      and to try and ban my popular writings on US legal corruption, like this
      article you are reading now, banned by US judges who have served legal
      papers on Google.

      One of the most moving documents I collected in the USA, was a heartfelt
      note from a gravely ill former Virginia judge, in danger of dying. She
      wrote to me to confess that Virginia judges, both state and federal,
      were utterly sunk in crime and bribery, and she correctly predicted that
      no lawyer would have the courage to help me, despite my proof of
      judicial corruption. She herself was scared to help me, thinking that
      the stress would kill her if she got up from her sickbed to try and
      fight for me.

      With these recent deplorable acts of murderous violence against judges
      and their families, I can see that the instinct of American judges will
      be to deepen the cover up of judicial misconduct, as if quashing the
      news and truth about themselves will make them safer. Hence the new 2007
      US fake trial to try and ban my freedom of speech all over again, more
      than three years after I took refuge in Europe.

      A better course would be to move toward a more transparent judicial
      process, with complaints out in the public and posted on the internet,
      and with the public impeachment and prosecution of the more notorious
      rogue judges. Americans today need some hope that there is justice at
      the end of the struggle, and not just a stone wall of corruption and

      But that is not happening, as the corporate forces of the US regime
      unite to attack any significant movement at judicial reform, and most
      especially the laudably-named JAIL 4 Judges. - The United States needs a
      return to real democracy and the values of the Bill of Rights, but it
      seems that in the face of judicial corruption, it is only a major
      revolution that can end these crimes of horror in which Americans now
      find themselves.
