I support ANONYMOUS in actions against corrupt government – down with tyrants!

with 2 comments


For too long now, the corrupt in government have been trashing the Constitution and de facto eliminating our Constitutional rights.  The 1 % and greedy are abusing the rest of us getting richer while making us poorer, denying education to the masses, denying health care, denying access to knowledge, denying the freedom to speak our mind and the justice of the courts.  Multinational corporations now control our governments. Our Constitution has no weight.  Our U.S. Supreme Court even refuses to enforce its own rulings. When the courts trash our rights, we no longer have remedy.

ANONYMOUS  – a secret society of hackers around the world dedicated to a free and open Internet [able to hack into anything], in response to the murder of Aaron Swartz , an Internet genius and proponent of free access to knowledge paid for by taxpayer dollars, has now decided to use their last resort and act.  The line has now been drawn in the sand.  They have reluctantly decided to act as a last resort due to the tyrany we now experience.

The Internet War against government corruption has now been unleashed. They have launched the first missile.

I support it.  I also ask ANONYMOUS to help us by publicizing the systemic lawlessness of the courts in Cook County and Illinois that I have revealed on this web site.

Please view the video in this link that announces the beginning of the Internet War to reform our corrupt government.

May God Help us! Tyrants in the Cook County Courts and in our government must be exposed, removed, and reform must occur.  There is no other option.

We are Anonymous. We are Legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget. Expect us

This is my response to the death of Aaron Swartz [an Internet and computer genius who invented RSS at the age of 14 and founded Reddit, who worked tirelessly for Internet freedom]:

Aaron’s death has devastated me. I and many others before and presently have tried to improve the world by working to right the wrongs that we bump into so annoyingly. Aaron in terms of Internet access to knowledge that our taxes paid for; me to make our courts transparent and information in our court system open to all so that we can bring to the light of day the corruption that is destroying us, most of all destroying children, elderly, families, and those of us who are working so hard, sacrificing so much, and mostly caring about others especially our children’s futures as well as the many before us and after us that will do the same. Yet our own government is used to destroy us in order to keep knowledge, justice, and freedom in the hands of the 1%, as well as in the hands of the corrupt, instead of in the hands of the people. I have also been arrested on fraudulent and excessive charges apparently in efforts to try to shut me up and shut down my blogs. I know exactly how Aaron felt. The hopelessness and despair are hard to fight. I pray that all those who knew Aaron and heard of him will help continue what is a fight, in the case of Aaron and likely soon in my case to the death. I hope his friends will pursue his cause with a vengeance, as well as try to help others, like me and our group of whistle blowers and activists who are seeking to bring more transparency and justice to the world, as well as stop the cover-up of the corruption that is lining the pockets of the corrupt, the connected, and the exclusive 1%, at the expense of the 99%.

VIA FASCIMILE DELIVERY 312 603-4683

Cook County Board of Commissioners

County Building

Chicago, IL 60602

Dear Board Members:

As you no longer allow public comment, the only way I can get the following statement  of concern to you is by a letter and to the public is by a press release.  There is no point in coming to board meetings anymore as we cannot interact with the board and we can read your minutes on line.

We ask that you consider the following statement and act upon it:

We as concerned parents in Cook County wish to ask the Board to request the Illinois legislature to investigate and rewrite the Illinois DHFS Child Support Enforcement laws as they presently are both:

1)    Unconstitutional as the Separation of Powers Clause in the Constitution forbids the Judiciary from overseeing and administering legislative functions; the Illinois Supreme Court is unconstitutionally “administering” the Administrative Law Courts under under 750 ILCS 25/4-5, the “Expedited Child Support Act of 1990.”

Please note that the Judiciary may not oversee or administer a legislative body, especially because they would then have a conflict of interest when Petitions for Mandamus are filed in courts against this body (the DHFS Child Support Enforcement Administrative Law Courts). Also note that all other administrative law courts under Illinois statutes are administrated and overseen by administrative and not judiciary officer; and

2)    Discriminatory in that they accept cases in Title IV-D program from custodial parents but fail their statutory duty to hear requests from NON-custodial parents for reduction in child support due to change of circumstances (i.e. Hold hearings in DHFS Administrative Law Courts)  as required under 750 ILCS 25/5-2 (“Actions Subject to Expedited Child Support”).

Thus they abdicate their statutory duty for the Administrative Law Court Investigator under Child Support Enforcement Division of DHFS to investigate both parents ‘ financial situation and hold a hearing to recommend to the Trial Court in post-divorce proceedings changes in child support. The courts then usurp this power and refuse even to listen to the defamed NON-custodial parent.

Thus many NON-custodial parents are falsely accused of failing to pay excessive child support which they are unable to pay and DHFS is obtaining federal funds to assist NON-custodial parents in obtaining changes in child support to reasonable amounts, but not using these funds for that purpose. What are they using them for – judges and child reps penions?  Instead the Non-custodial parents are falsely labeled and defamed as “deadbeats.

Two examples of this lawlessness in the Cook County Courts that are affected by the dereliction of this statutory duty by DHFS and lawless rulings by judges are:

1)     Sandie, who stopped her preparation for a board exam in pediatrics and for licensure as a  physician to raise her children, while her ex-husband completed his exams and then after being fraudulently defamed and the custody of her children illegally removed from her due to false statements to the court by her ex-husband and the child representative, then the Trial Court has ordered her to  pay exorbitant child support “because you are a doctor”, while she is actually homeless due to this order and she is NOT a licensed doctor and cannot obtain high paying employment, at the same time that her ex-husband is a highly paid anesthesiologist and her children are being brainwashed against her through typical actions known as parental alienation.  The DHFS has yet to hear her case to reduce child support.

2)    David, who is falsely defamed by his ex-wife as dangerous because he is an ex-Marine, and therefore wrongfully and illegally upon the outrageous order of the Trial Court lost custody of his children. He had a serious injury to his back at work last year – and he therefore has been unemployed for nearly a year. Worker’s compensation has failed to OK his compensation and his union is litigating that issue so his income has been $0 for a year. Yet the Trial Court has ordered him to pay $420 in child support every two weeks for his two children who are in the custody of their mother who is a drug addict. David has NO other assets as his ex-wife was a compulsive spender and threw away over $200,000 of marital income causing them to remortgage their house and lose it in foreclosure. Yet the Trial Court has refused, even after receiving affidavits from others that she is a drug addict to have the mother tested or even examined by psychologists as well as refused to even allow to be filed, let alone hear a motion to reduce child support. Now the judge is threatening to jail David for failure to pay child support.

Please note that the NON-custodial parents then end up with wage garnishment and other orders requiring that they pay > 150 % of their income for child support and they are thrown in jail when they are unable to do this. Their parents and other relatives are then extorted to get them out of jail. Please note that the Federal Consumer  Protection Act, 15 U.S.C. § 1611 and 29 C.F.R Part 870 require that wage garnishment be for no more than 65 % of NET income! These Trial Court orders often say that NON-custodial parents must pay more than 150 % of their gross income for child support. Isn’t this extortion and federal funding fraud?

I hope your committee will strongly consider this suggestion and strongly advocate for investigation of this situation.

Attached is the “Table of Contents” of the Big Divorce Book written by Dr. Shelton and David Bambic which has a summary of the DHFS Child Support Enforcement statutes and the federal Consumer Protection Statutes.

Thank you for your time in reviewing this most important issue. We await your concerned response.

Sincerely,

Linda Lorincz Shelton, PhD, MD

Corruption at Markham courthouse family court

with one comment


See “Justice for Livia”s web site here: http://justiceforlivia.wordpress.com/about/

Judge Coglin, now retired, has destroyed families by giving numerous children to male abusers, many with political connections  who cover-up the abuse of their children.  Professionals including teachers have lost custody of their children due to his illegal rulings that also  destroy family income.  The problem of judicial corruption is systemic in Illinois especially C[r]ook County Illinois.

VAMA and Social Security Title IV-D funds are being diverted to enrich judges, court-appointed attorneys, and court-appointed evaluators.  Demand fix to VAMA funding before passage.

Now the Presiding Judge of Markham Courthouse Judge Marjorie C. Laws, sister of Public Defender (ret) Judge Cunnngham has banned all electronic devices in Markham courhouse – including all cell phones, laptops, ipods, palm pilots, electronic calenders, etc.  So witnesses and pro se individuals cannot even bring their electronic calenders into the courthouse!!!! She is stacking the cards against citizens and the innocent and making sure that what goes on in courthouses is kept quiet with no witnesses, no recordings, no court watchers, etc.

The county already does not provide court reporters in family court so the poor have no record of corrupt acts by judges and lose appeals because “they did no [pay  court reporters] to preserve the record”! 

Totalitarian Hitler like tactics are now being used by Judge Laws to keep the corruption quiet and out of the press!!

Write a protest letter to the press, the U.S. Attorney, your senators and representatives, the Governor, Chief Judge Timothy Evans (Rm 2600 Daley Center at 50 W Washington, Chicago 60602) and anyone else you can think of!!

U.S. Supreme Court approves elimination of right to petition for habeas corpus, right to have witnesses at trial, and other Constitutional rights in Cook County

with 5 comments


Today the U.S. Supreme Court denied my motion for rehearing of a petition for writ of mandamus against the Cook County Circuit Court, U.S. Supreme Court case number 11-10814, and Dishonorable Judge Peggy Chiampas. Therefore they have approved the following criminal acts done by Judge Chiampas which amount to violation of her oath of office and therefore acts of treason per  U.S. Supreme Court case law and gross misconduct of a judge, as well as criminal acts of corrupt Sheriff staff including Assistant Chief William J. Nolan. When the high court refuses to hear a case, this act therefore upholds the acts of the court below that made the rulings which the litigant is challenging in the high court.

There is no legal right to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court or even the Illinois Supreme Court. The courts changed this right to by permission only.  Even though the high court is the supervisor of all courts in the land, they are not required to do so.  Therefore, in order to limit their cases to no more than about 80 per year out of about 6,000 to 8,000 submitted they ignore many cases where laws and the constitution are violated by police, lower courts, and officials.

American justice is therefore a myth.

If, as in Illinois the appellate court is corrupt and controlled by the corrupt officials then anyone who criticizes judges, police, or public officials will be made to lose their case regardless of the law. Any lawyer who supports them will have a difficult time making a living in Cook County. In Cook County the courts including the IL Appellate Court and the Federal District Court and 7th Circuit Court’s Chief judges as well as many other judges, and also the state’s attorney, U.S. Attorney, FBI Chicago Director and the Sheriff are controlled by a cabal of corrupt Democratic and Republican officials. These officials include:

1)  the former Gov. of IL Jim Thompson who was also Director of the U.S. CIA oversight committee under Pres Bush I and a member of the 911 Commission under Pres Bush II, as well as the top corrupt official in the cabal;

2) IL Supreme Court Justice Ann Burke and her husband Chicago Alderman Burke – who requires that judicial candidates pay the machine $10,000 in order to guarantee their election by buying signs to post on property of state employees from the Sheriff’s and Secretary of State’s offices – thus forcing lawyers to contribute to the judges election campaign committee; forcing state, county and city employees in order to get promotions or keep supervisory positions or even keep a job to sell a certain number of fundraising tickets for election campaign committees; and ensuring that all contracts for government work include a bribe of 15 % of the amount the company earns into the campaign election committees for officials like Speaker of the House Michael Madigan and his daughter IL Atty Gen Lisa Madigan (who with two years in the peace corps and a few years as a State Senator certainly was NOT qualified to be the IL AG);

3)the Daley brothers – John a Cook County Board member who actually controls the County no matter who is the President of the Board, previously his brother Richard who was Mayor of Chicago, and their other brother who is Midwest Director of Chase Bank and that is why they now  have the State contracts for processing property tax checks.

The cabal is now preparing to have Lisa Madigan run for Governor vs. the Daley brother to run for  Gov. so they can keep tight reigns on the State as well as the county and the city.  All other (“inherited Lordships”) elected positions in the Cook County Board, the City Council and State Government are controlled by the cabal so that only a handful of people run the State behind the scenes.

The agencies are controlled through their assistant directors who have been in their positions through several administrations and know the ropes and are controlled behind the scenes by Jim Thompson, the Burkes, the Daleys and other top dogs. They used to control things by taking out opponents with mafia operated machine guns.  Now they take out opponents and whistle blowers with false criminal charges, defamation of character, and false allegations of mental illness.

The law firm of Vrdolyak and other mafia lawyers make sure everything is done right and none of these people can be directly tied to the corruption.  For example, I was told through intermediaries that “if I paid $10,000 to Madigan (through their election campaign committee) then I  could have a meeting with Michael Madigan and all my issues would be resolved.  “Business” is conducted behind closed doors. I am being destroyed because of these blogs, my constant criticism and complaints about corrupt government over the past 10 years and my refusal to pay the bribe.

The machine is sort of like the story “Robin Hood”, with Jim Thompson being the evil king, States Attorney Devine now Alvarez being the high cardinal executioner, Sheriff Sheahan now Dart (the one that arranged for Obama’s election) being the evil Sheriff of Nottingham and enforcer of the evilo dictates of the King, and everyone else being an inherited Lordship that cow tows to the King’s whim.  In Cook County no  one gets on the Democratic ballot without Burke’s approval and Burke arranges for fake Republicans to run in a token manner. There essentially is no Republican party in Cook  County any more.

Huge numbers of  public employees in the Sheriff’s Office, the Secretary of State’s  office and all state, county, and city offices are filled by relatives of elected and appointed officials.  If the relatives pay their due into political campaign committees (which are also used to launder money from illegal activities) then they will get a steady job with a huge pension.  That is partly why Illinois has  one of the worst economies in the country with the highest pension debt!  How Special! This system ensures a huge patronage army and is a system, along with the 15 % bribes required for government contracts that is called “pay-to-play”. Most government employees are expected to contribute 3% of their salary to election campaign committees. If you want to trace the corruption, you need to trace the family names of elected and appointed officials, the money trail through their campaign committees and the law firms, agencies, and phony foundations that donate to the campaign committees.

This is why we need term limits, transparency of all actions of the state, county, and city comptroller and treasurer, and public oversight, as well as appointed and not elected judges, appointed not by government officials but by committees of experts with term limits such as law school professors with foundation directors and randomly picked members of the public with at least a college education. I don’t believe our founding fathers understood how easy it would be to corrupt our government.

Please read about the following extensive felony criminal acts of Sheriff staff and judges against Dr. Linda Shelton in the following and here also as well as the criminal and unconstitutional acts of Dishonorable Judge Chiampas at the links in the end of this post:

1) Refusal for a court clerk to file or a presiding judge to hear a petition for writ of habeas corpus in a criminal case.  This is the highest right a citizen has in the United States and this now has been eliminated in Cook County. (The right is found in the “Suspension Clause” of the United States Constitution) and the U.S. Supreme Court in a 2008 case called Boumedience v. Bush ruled that even prisoners at Guantanamo Bay have the right to have a non-attorney file a next-friend petition for writ of habeas corpus to have examined by a senior judge if they are being held legally with probable cause.  Apparently they have these rights but I do not, nor does anyone who has been charged with a misdemeanor crime in Cook County!

2) Arrest of a defendant for getting sick in the courtroom. Refusal to write an order to force the Sheriff to allow an ill defendant to bring special food or drink into the courthouse or to be allowed to take necessary breaks during the trial, which are violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

3) Denial of speedy trial right under the Sixth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

4) Denial of right to compulsory process (Judge Chiampas refused to enforce my subpoenas for contact information from Court Clerk Dorothy Brown’s office for her employees who were witnesses in my favor) under the Sixth Amendment.

5) Denial of right to call witnesses who can impeach the state witnesses, including Kent Law School Professor T. Coyne, who witnessed Judge McHale violated my civil rights and jail me for filing a next-friend habeas petition (a legal act allowed by statute), especially as I filed one in 2009 resulting in his appointment by Judge Biebel as an attorney for the defendant Maisha Hamilton, who also has been falsely arrested in order to cover-up the corruption she is a witness to in Cook County and Illinois government.  If you defame witnesses, they are useless against you!

Prof. Daniel T. Coyne also is a witness to the fact that a social worker (Robinson) at the jail called me and asked me to pick up the property of an inmate that was transferred (six bags).  I came but could only pick up three so I came back a few days later and the jail staff refused to give me the other bags and arrested me for insisting that they cannot keep them and steal them. I then asked Mr. Coyne to pick  up Maisha Hamilton’s other 3 bags of legal documents and he did. I then went and retrieved them from him.

Prof. Coyne, lied in the court today and told the judge that I didn’t ask him to pick up the bags or come get them from him.  He apparently is working with these corrupt judges to defame and destroy me.  Judge Chiampas then barred him as a witness and indicated she was barring all my witnesses.  None of them showed up – they are sheriff staff and court clerk staff and have ignored my subpoenas.  So the Sixth Amendment guarantee of right to call witnesses no longer exists in C[r]ook County for defendants that the judges want to destroy.

6) Denial of right to have an unbiased judge (Judges orders are void if they fail to transfer a motion for substitution of judge for cause [bais] to another judge). Judge Chiampas refused to do this for more than 5 months, then a corrupt junior Judge Edward S. Harmening denied this motion despite the above facts that cause Judge Chiampas to clearly be revealed as biased and violating the constitution against me.  He apparently had his marching orders. She then quashed my second motion for SOJ also and it has not been transferred to another judge.

7) Denial of right not to be arrested and tried without probable cause. The charges against me are not legally sufficient.  I am charged with trespass to real property which does not apply in a public building and the charge said I entered the Daley Center after being given notice by the owner or occupant not to enter.  Yet the documents say I refused to leave the Sheriff’s office public waiting area where I went to complain that a clerk stole my personal court file. Therefore, the charge is not legal. Judge Chiampas is holding me for trial without probable cause a violation of the constitutiuon.

The second charge is disorderly conduct and again the charge is legally insufficient stating tthat I refused to leave the building. For a charge of disorderly conduct to be legal you have to claim the person disturbed the public order and name people who were doing something that was disturbed. They name no one so the charge is not legal and must be dismissed.

You can read more details about this in my U.S. Supreme Court pleadings at the end of this post.

Therefore, law does not apply in Cook County. The Constitution does not apply in Cook County.  Judges are GOD in Cook County, can ignore law, make law, arrest you, convict you and jail you for doing legal things like asking for a supervisor at the Daley Center when a Sheriff staff member violates the law or complaining about harassment by corrupt officials or police. Police can arrest you without legal charges and get you jailed if they are mad that you are criticizing them or exposing their corrupt acts. Retaliation is encouraged.  You have no rights in court in Cook County.  Excessive bail is the norm so that the courts can rip off even innocent defendants. They keep 10 % of all bonds whether you are innocent or guilty no matter how large the bond, despite the fact it takes the same amount of work to process a $1 million bond (they keep $100,000 even if you are innocent) as it does a $100 bond (they keep $10).

The FBI, U.S. Attorney, State Police, Chicago Police, Chief Judge Timothy Evans, Presiding First Municipal District Judge E. Kenneth Wright Jr, Illinois Appellate Court, Illinois Supreme Court, Federal District Court, and now the U.S. Supreme Court condone the above.  Therefore we live in a totalitarian police state and we have no recourse. The First Amendment right to redress of grievances no longer exists.  U.S. Supreme Court rulings are toothless and the court refuses to enforce its orders or the Constitution.

This leaves us no choice but 1) suicide, 2) armed revolt (suicide by cop), 3) flee the country, or 4) kiss ass, shut up, do as your told and submit to the corruption while accepting crumbs. What will you choose when this happens to you?

I (Shelton) have appealed to the U.S. Attorney in Washington and several different divisions there, Congressment, Senators in Washington and Springfield, elite lawyers throughout the country, foundations including the ACLU, Constitution Society, etc., and hundreds of lawyers including the National Lawyer’s Guild to no avail.  Several told me that they were threatened that if they help me they won’t have a job.  Some told me the FBI has only 25 or so agents actually investigation government corruption throughout the country and they won’t prosecute any case unless the government can collect at least $20 million and there are no more than 3 offenders.  Top dogs suggest that to make changes requires the help of the press and change can only be done through the legislature or Congress.  Since the cabal controls Springfield, change requires federal intervention.  I don’t know how much the Obama administration is beholding to the cabal but I do know that when Pres. Obama was a Senator he sat next to Lisa Madigan on the Senate Judiciary Committee.  I believe to get real change we need several constitutional amendments including term limits and a rule that no more than a third of a body (house or senate) may include one profession such as lawyers.  Right now the fox is watching the hen house.

The following documents give the evidence that proves the above:

Better Business Bureau Complaint against Peck Bloom, LLC law firm and Judge James Riley for corruption

with one comment


Beware of Peck Bloom, LLC law firm regarding probate matters and trusts.  They will laugh all the way to the bank after they set you up, encourage dissent among beneficiaries after you die, and then eat your estate up in their fees while the beneficiaries get nothing but their bills. Slimebags of the upteenth degree! Tell me your stories, gather your evidence and let us take them down with criminal charges and attacks against their law licenses! Send emails to picepil@aol.com.

NOTE THAT SINCE THE BBB REFUSES TO LOOK AT THE COMPLAINT UNTIL IT IS ADJUDICATED, I HAVE COMPLAINED TO THE ILLINOIS ATTORNEY REGISTRATION AND DISCIPLINARY COMMISSION AND THE COMPLAINT IS STILL PENDING.

I have made a complaint against attorneys Kerry Peck (photo at right with glasses) , Timothy Ritchey (photo at right – younger guy no glasses) and Katie McClanahan, of Peck Bloom, LLC to the Better Business Buruea for bribing Judge James Riley in the Cook County Probate Division by contributing to his election campaign for the Illinois Supreme Court, which he just lost, in order to make Judge Riley illegally, immorally, criminally, and in violation of his oath of office, ignore two transcripts from 2007 from my sister Alice Dale and father, the late Allan Levente Lorincz, M.D.. They first contributed $10,000 to the election of Judge Theis for Supreme Court who won.  Then at the time of an inportant hearing in this case they contributed $3150 to her opponent Judge Riley the judge on my probate case to fix the case and ignore the forgery of a trust and fraud upon the court (false statements proven by transcripts from 2007).

NOTE THE PICTURES OF THESE TWO SLEEZY SCUMBAG ATTORNEYS WHO SUB JORNED PERJURY, COERCED THEIR MENTALLY ILL CLIENT TO LIE, MADE FRAUDLENT AND FALSE STATEMENTS TO THE JUDGE AND BRIBED JUDGE JAMES RILEY! Note young Ritchey’s permanent smirk!

Two partners in their law firm, Peck Bloom, LLC, Cameron “Camie” DeGuerre and Peter Coolas also paid into the Judge Riley Election Campaign Committee.  Note  pictures of the two partners who likely also were trying to assist their partners in fraudulently influencing Judge Riley. The Chicago Council of Lawyers determined that Judge Riley was “not qualified” to be an Illinois Supreme Court judge.  Why would they contribute to the campaign of an arrogant, incompetent, judge who accepts bribes?

I am also pleading with the public to write the U.S. Attorney General and ask him to investigate this, as it does not only affect me.  This law firm is known for stretching out cases by making false statements and bribing judges, by encouraging arguments among beneficiaries thus increasing their fees, and then getting unreasonable sanctions imposed on beneficiaries by corrupt judges like Riley in order to enrich themselves.  We must stop them.  Ask your attorneys to make complaints too.

Many attorneys know about corruption but are failing to make complaints to the ARDC (attorney regulatory and disciplinary commission) or JIB (judicial inquiry board) because they are afraid if they complain that they will get adverse rulings from judges (which is true – if you don’t condone corruption as an attorney in Chicago, you won’t have any business). However, there is an Illinois Supreme Court decision (Himmel) that says that if an attorney fails to report corruption that he is aware of, then he is guilty of condoning it.

Alice and my father both had testified in another case several years ago that my sister is mentally ill and cannot take care of family affairs outside  her immediate family, that I moved in with my father in 2006 as he was deteriorating from Parkinson’s disease after my mother died 10 years prior, and I had been eating dinner with him daily for those 10 years and helping him with his house and personal affairs. I will post the transcripts shortly.

The bribe was used to cause Judge Riley to dismiss my challenged to this forged and incomplete trust and custodial claim without a trial based solely on hearsay and these false statements.

The bribe was also used to influence Judge Riley to ignore the fact that my attorney, Robert Held from Harrison & Held, LLP (at outstanding and honest law firm that is reeling from this corruption and has made a complaint to the Attorney Regulatory and Disciplinary Commission [ARDC]), which I will post shortly, gave  them discovery  – while illegally converting this hearing on the motion to dismiss for discovery violation into a de facto trial on the issue of the trust challenge (denying notice and due process which are constitutional rights), ruling instead that Held had failed to provide them discovery and therefore Judge Riley illegally dismissed my statutory custodial claim and trust challenge and ruled that I had not cared for my father, had not loved him, had verbally abused him and exploited him, and that my claims were frivolous. The transcript where they lied will be posted shortly.

Judge  Riley then to really destroy me ordered me to forfeit my inheritance to pay their fees (so far $245,000) and ordered that they may evict me, a disabled person whose inheritance was supposed to go into a special needs trust and the house was supposed to go into the special needs trust. I will post the trust document (forged and valid) and the orders shortly.

I have an appeal pending in the Illinois Appellate Court which I will post on line.

You can read my motion for stay of Riley’s orders to the Illinois Appellate Court here that they immorally and illegally denied. I am filing papers with higher courts.

You can make complaints with the Better Business Bureau here. My complaint is as follows:

Filed against :
Peck Bloom, LLC
105 W Adams St Floor 31
Chicago IL 60603-6227

Complaint Description:
Kerry Peck, Timothy Ritchey, & Katie McClanahan represent my mentally ill sister, & they are manipulating her into lying to the probate court that my gravely ill father who died in 9/7/10 changed his trust on his deathbed & removed me as trustee & made her the trustee. The trust was not signed by my father in both required spots – HIPAA release & signature.

The signature was forged & I have proof because his signature was normal & not a smudge just a few weeks prior. They did this to take over the trust & steal my father’s estate with attorney fees.

They also bribed the judge with contributions to his election committee within weeks of him making an adverse decision against me dismissing my trust challenge & statutory custodial claim without a hearing based on fraudulently presented “discovery violations.” They claim my attorney did not give them discovery which is a lie & both my attorney & myself have complaints pending with the ARDC & JIB.

The bribery made the judge ignore 2007 transcripts in a court case where my now deceased father and sister (falsely purported trustee) both testified that I lovingly cared for my father, moving in with him in 2006, after eating dinner with him after my mother’s death for the previous 14 yrs, took care of him and his property & estate, & even took care of my sister’s family’s finances, & she testified that she is mentally ill & her doctor told her to stay away from problems & family affairs as she can’t handle them.

The judge ignored these transcripts and faked in open court that he believed the lies from Peck Bloom attorneys that I didn’t live with my father, didn’t love him, financially exploited him & physically abused the aides, as well as verbally abused him. This is completely false & we have many affidavits as well as aforementioned transcripts to prove this but we never had a trial as the judge after he was bribed (the election commission web site proves these attorneys contributed to his election campaign for justice of the IL Supreme Court at the very time he was making these rulings) made this immoral & illegal ruling dismissing my trust challenge & claim & then ordering me to forfeit my inheritance to pay their fees saying my claims were “frivolous”.

My father had made a special needs trust for me as a disabled person to be funded with a 1/4 of the estate at his death. He had bought a house for my brother who has bipolar disorder & paranoid delusions about me & had verbally abused our father & sexually abused me as a teenage. He had contributed $300,000 to my sister’s house who has severe borderline personality disorder, has tried to kill herself many times & has squandered all the money given to her.

That is why she wants to steal my inheritance. My father said in all the trust documents for the past 20 years that I was to inherit his home which was to be put into my special needs trust. The Trustee was supposed to pay the mortgage on this home & a condo as the first act after his death & sell the condo. His estate was worth about 2 million, but my sister has squandered most of it & the rest is going to these unscrupulous attorneys. Now they are trying to evict me.

They also ransacked my home & stole everything of value including my passport & wallet & house keys during the last month of my father’s life while I was in hospital.

I am still trying to fight this with an appeal in court, but am losing because they refuse to have a hearing & the judges are corrupt & against me because I maintain a web site exposing their corruption & felony conduct & I am trying to have the FBI arrest them by giving them evidence.

See: https://cookcountyjudges.wordpress.com & http://illinoiscorruption.blogspot.com

So based on lies and fraud, my father was abused & died in a hospital instead of at home with me at his side, & they have stolen my inheritance & home & property & are putting me on the street. This is political as I have evidence against the IL Attorney General & several judges [of corruption and felony crimes and they have to shut me up. They have to shut me up.]

Your Desired Resolution:
I want the attorney regulatory and disciplinary commission (ARDC) and judicial inquiry board (JIB) as well as the policing authorities to act and arrest these attorneys and the judge and a new judge to remove my sister as trustee and restore my access to the estate funds and property so that I can divide it up, take care of everyone the way my father had instructed me to do and make sure no one else is abused and exploited by this corrupt law firm (Peck is politically powerful and was the president of the Chicago Association) and this corrupt judge. Thank God he lost the election.

This needs to be exposed in the press. I don’t think you will get involved because it is political and your Chicago/Illinois office will get repercussions if you get involved, but I want to inform you about this.

I probably will get clobbered because corruption is now the norm in this country and especially in Illinois. So all I can do is fight in the courts knowing that the IL Appellate Court will ignore law and fact and back these corrupt attorneys and judges and that the IL Supreme Court and U.S. Supreme Court will not take the case as they don’t have to and it is not important enough for them.

This will just prove that American Justice is a Myth. I suppose I will have to go to a women’s shelter in Canada as a dual Canadian American citizen and then I may be able to get health care.

Bribes paid to fix case and elect Judge James Riley to the Illinois Supreme Court

with 2 comments


This is a page from the Illinois Election Board web site showing the contributions made for the election of Judge James Riley as an Illinois Supreme Court Justice in the 2012 election.

It also reveals that attorneys Kerry Peck, Timothy Ritchey, Peter Coorlas, and Cameron DeGuerre of Peck Bloom LLC each contributed to the Committee to Elect Judge Riley.  This was a week before Judge Riley upon the motions of these two attorneys ignored forgery and fraud in my probate case concerning the estate of my late father and made an adverse ruling against me as a disabled person, illegally dismissing my trust challenge due to this forgery and fraud, and ordered that my entire inheritance of $250,000 and a house be forfeited to pay their fraudulent attorney fees.

They are representing my crazy sister Alice Dale. See my motion to the Illinois Appellate Court for a stay of court orders which was illegally denied. Read my motion for stay that gives proof of the forgery and fraud. They forged my father’s name on an amended will and trust on his deathbed and then they lied in court that I did not live with my father, take care of him for three years, and they also made the dispicable lie that I didn’t love him and extorted and abused him.

This is how Illinois Corruption works.  They steal estates of the disabled, elderly, and mentally ill in a systemic fashion, laughing all the way.  You should see how Judge Riley and attorneys Ritchey and Peck wink at each other and smile in court.  It makes me puke.  When is the FBI  going to arrest them?

Please write U.S. Attorney Eric Holder and ask him when they are  going to believe Dr. Linda Shelton and her fellow whistle blowers, and come and interview us and review the evidence we have.

In order to discover the bribery and corruption all you have to do is find out the names of the judge’s and lawyer’s associates, wives, children and relatives and the names of the litigants and then cross-reference them with the contributions made to elect judges and officials.  Most of the bribery is laundered through election campaign committees.

Money is also laundered through real estate transactions in other states where the properties are bought for ridiculously low amounts with case – for example the dozen or so  properties bought by IL Attorney General Lisa Madigan in Maricopa County Arizona for $1.  Then cash changes hands secretly.  The FBI could follow the bank deposits if they wanted to.

Then money is also laundered through phoney foundations such as Save-A-Life-Foundation where Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan gave this foundation $50,000 out of the Illinois Attorney General’s budget (your tax dollars) and it was never accounted for, yet no charges have been brought against its CEO. Some of this is explained in this petition for writ of mandamus presently pending before the U.S. Supreme Court.

Activists ask U.S. Supreme Court to appoint special master to review and correct lawlessness in Cook County Courts

with one comment


This motion to the United States Supreme Court requests that the high court consolidate the issue of lawlessness (denial of civil rights including right to petition for writ of habeas corpus, due process, compulsory process, trial by jury, right to counsel, speedy trial, substitution of judge for cause [bias] and ADA accommodations) in three cases before the court: 12-6561, 11-10814, and 11-10790. It exposes the pervasive and systemic ignorance, maliciousness, cover-up of corruption, and denial of civil rights by judges throughout the Circuit Court of Cook County.

The cases which the activists, Linda Lorincz Shelto, PhD, MD, and Mr. David Bambic are requesting to be consolidated over the issue of appointing a special master to investigate the Cook County Courts and institute systems of oversight of the judges and judicial education including civilian, non-court related oversight include the following three cases:

Motion to consolidate cases over issue of lawlessness in Cook County Courts exhibited by Judges: Michael McHale, Joseph Kazmierski, David Haracz, Peggy Chiampas, Jorge Alonso, Veronica Mathein, Kathleen Pantle, Marie Kuriakos Ciesil, Mary Margaret Brosnahan, Kenneth J. Wadas, Colleen A. Hyland, Noreen Daly, William D. Maddux, Timothy Evans, and E. Kenneth Wright Jr.

Original Petition for Writ of Mandamus for violating habeas corpus rights and holding persons for trial without probable cause.  Case No 12-6561

Exhibits for above: Volume 1, Volume 2, Volume 3.

Original Petition for Writ of Mandamus in United States Supreme Court due to Trial Court (Judge  Peggy Chiampas) ignoring due process and civil rights (speedy trial, compulsory process, ADA accommodations, substitution of judge for cause [bias]).  Case No 11-10814

Motion for rehearing of 11-10814 after dismissal without comment.

Motion to add two more questions for rehearing concerning refusal to allow petition for writ of habeas corpus to be filed and heard in 11-10814

Original Petition for Writ of Certiorari (appeal) to U.S. Supreme Court regarding lawlessness (violation of trial rights, compulsory process [discovery], refusal to follow Illinois Statutes, and use of hearsay for decisions) Case No 11-10790

Dr Shelton asks U.S. Supreme Court to appoint special master to remove corruption in Circuit Court of Cook County

with 5 comments


On this site and in their pleadings before the Circuit Court of Cook County, the Illinois Appellate Court and the Illinois Supreme Court, Dr. Linda Shelton, Dr. Sheila Mannix, David Bambic, Milijana Vlastelica, Frank Epstein, Sandra Padron, Karyn Mehringer, Mic Gerhardt, Maisha Hamilton, Vernon Glass, Naomi Jennings, Annabel Melongo, Davy Cady and many others have shown that the Circuit Court of Cook County has allowed its judges to disregard constitutional rights such as due process, speedy trial, the right to petition for writ of habeas corpus, the right to receive notice and discovery before trial, the right to have enforced state laws as to trial and court procedure, and the right to confront witnesses against them and not have court decision made based on hearsay.

The extreme lawlessness that Shelton has documented on this site is now before the United States Supreme Court in three Petitions for Certiorari and for Mandamus and five more are in preparation. You can read them in the links at the end of this post.

In the pleadings that follow, David Bambic and Linda Shelton are asking the United States Supreme Court to review this extreme lawlessness that has caused wrongful decisions in their cases, but that also is so pervasive that hundreds if not thousands of divorce cases, orders of protection cases, criminal cases, probate cases, and child custody cases must be overturned or retried.

The state of anarchy in Cook County due to judicial ignorance, corruption, misconduct, arrogance, and maliciousness is so extreme, so harmful to children, families, the elderly, and innocent accused of crimes particularly whistle blowers who are being retaliated against, as documented in these three U.S. Supreme Court proceedings that Shelton has requested the U.S. Supreme Court to appoint a special master to review the policies and procedures of the Circuit Court of Cook County and to institute a judicial education and supervision program so that the right to petition for writ of habeas corpus, the right for a speedy trial, the right to compulsory process, the right to notice and discovery before trial, as well as other rights guaranteed by the Bill of Rights including due process or following the statutes and rules of the state and the federal codes and rules are preserved and no longer violated pervasively.

Shelton now calls for Cook County Board President Tony Preckwinkle to fire Chief Judge Timothy Evans for failure to ensure that the judges in the Circuit Court of Cook County follow the Constitutions of the United States and Illinois and the laws of the State of Illinois and these United States.

We can no longer allow this pervasive, malignant lawlessness to run our courts in Cook County and be steered by the corrupt government officials and police officials that have been doing so.

U.S. Supreme Court Petition for Writ of Mandamust concerning refusal to hear petition for writ of habeas corpus and false arrest and conviction for filing a next-friend petition for writ of habeas corpus, as well as summary (no trial) conviction and sentence of 16 mo in jail for criminal contempt for filing the habeas petition as a non-attorney (the judge declared this illegal) despite the fact that Illinois law allows it: 735 ILCS 5/10 et seq.

David Bambic’s Petition for Writ of Certiorari concerning a divorce case where he wrongfully, unconstitutionally, and unjustly lost custody of his children and falsely is accused of being dangerous to his children due to lies and hearsay from his drug addicted ex-wife, Catherine Wood, who was given custody, while the court is refusing to acknowledge that the Departmentof Children and Family Services invested the accusations against him by his ex-wife and determined them to be unfounded which proves the judge’s orders for custody and the divorce are illegal and void.

Cook County Circuit Court Judge Chiampas suspends 6th Amendment right to compulsory process and speedy trial, violates Illinois Statutes for Substitution of Judge – in acts of treason

with 2 comments


Shelton has filed an United States Supreme Court Petition for Writ of Mandamus against Circuit Court of Cook County Judge Peggy Chiampas for ordering denial of compulsory process, denial of speedy trial, and violation of statutes for substitution of judge for cause.

Judge Chiampas even issued a warrant on a case that Shelton won a year ago and set bail for this misdemeanor of $25,000. She also arrested Shelton for going out into the hall when she was ill, violating the U.S. Americans with Disabilities Act. In addition, she issued two bails on one case and has issued excessive bails.  Judge Chiampas is not fit to be a judge as she has no understanding of basic constitutional rights.

Judge Chiampas is incompetent, narcissitic, rude, and dangerous to the public. She needs to be immediately removed from the bench and subjected to mental health evaluation. Presiding Judge Wright and Chief Judge Evans should be held accountable for allowing this nut case to remain on the bench. She is only concerned about railroading people through her court in a rush to judgment so she can clear the calender that has been loaded up with so many cases due to misconduct of other judges. The chief and presiding judges have placed her on this call to clear the calender and have paid no attention to her incompetence and misconduct. Her courtroom is nothing more than a Salem Witch trial. Please help get this nutcase off the bench.

Judge Peggy Chiampas is so ignorant of the law that she doesn’t  understand that she cannot strike a motion for substitution of judge for cause.  She had the gall to tell Shelton that she was considering allowing her to refile the motion. Shelton on June 13th, 2012, told Chiampas in court that she had not jurisdiction, that she lost it when Shelton had her courier file a Motion for SOJ Chiampas for Cause.  Shelton said she didn’t need her leave to refile it as Chiampas’ order to strike it was VOID ab initio according to higher court case law.  Chiampas then said she was granting leave to file. Shelton said she no longer recognized Chiampas as the judge on the case and every order she makes is VOID and without jurisdiction.

UPDATE:

Shelton made a motion for Substitution of Judge for Cause, because of Judge Chiampas history of lawlessness, and it was filed by a courier on May 29, 2012.  Judge Chiampas said it was stricken on May 29, 2012, a day Shelton did not come to court because Chiampas refused to transfer the case to the presiding judge and had ordered Shelton to come to court on May 29, 2012 and submit to a trial that day, but Chiampas had ordered that Shelton could not have witnesses (Chiampas had stricken motions to compel Clerk Brown and Sheriff Dart to produce evidence – names of witnesses. Both Brown and Dart are deliberately ignoring the subpoenas, which is a criminal act). On June 13, 2012 Shelton was in court, in custody after she had surrendered at the FBI buildling on June 8, 2012. Shelton had taken this extra time and not shown up in court so she could write a Petiton for Writ of mandamus to the US Supreme Court and file Petitions for Writs of Habeas Corpus to have these bogus cases dismissed and to order a fair trial – force the judge to be replaced and force compliance with subpoenas as well as force the court to follow speedy trial laws and the constitution  concerning compulsory process of witnesses and other laws.

The jail staff have purposely and maliciously in the past when Shelton was illegally incarcerated prevented her from having paper and pen and access to the courts, so that she had to make sure any motions were written before she surrendered.  These legal filings by Shelton apparently were noticed by Presiding Muncipal 1 Judge Wright who ordered that Judge Harmeling would hear the SOJ for Cause Motion, despite Judge Chiampas striking it.  Judge Chiampas on June 13, 2010 also ordered the states attorney to meet with Shelton who showed them that two of the case numbers were the same case and Clerk Brown had made one of her numerous clerical errors – so the state dropped one of the cases. Then Chiampas ordered Dart and Brown to have their lawyers in court on June 20 and ordered them on June 20th to comply with the subpoenas.  This is AFTER Judge Chiampas had stricken with prejudice (can’t be reinstated), on March 21, 2012, Shelton’s motion to compel Dart and Brown to comply with subpoenas. Chiampas must have read the US Supreme Court Motion which asked the court to compel Chiampas to follow the Bill of Rights and compel witnesses to comply with subpoenas.

On June 28, 2012 Shelton informed the court through an attorney that she could not appear to hear Judge Harmeling’s ruling on the Motion for SOJ Chiapas for cause that Shelton argued on June 20, 2012, because Shelton was ill and due to her multiple chronic illnesses and the extreme heat index, as well as a stomach flu with fever, she could not appear in court.  The next hearing was postponed until July 2, 2012 as a result.

Shelton, on June 13, 2012 told Judge Chiampas that it was illegal for her to strike the motion for Substitution of Judge for Cause.  Judge Chiampas said that presiding Judge Wright had ordered another Judge to hear the motion and that she was allowing the motion to be re-instated (she had no power to strike or re-instate as the only power she has after a motion for substitution of Judge is written and filed is to transfer the case to the presiding Judge).  Judge Harmeling was assigned to hear the motion and he appeared in court on June 20, 2012.

Judge Harmeling heard the Motion for SOJ for Cause against Judge Chiampas on July 2, 2012 and totally igored the higher court precedent on the topic that Shelton had written in her Motion for SOJ for Cause (see it here), as well as the law, fraudulently stating that Shelton was just angry at Judge Chiampas’ rulings and that was not a reason to substitute judge. He then denied the motion and transferred it back to Judge Chiampas. Judge Chiampas then ordered a status hearing on August 3, 2012 to check on whether discovery was complete from the subpoenas issued to Clerk Dorothy Brown and Sheriff Dart.

Shelton on July 2, 2012 filed several motions including a motion 2nd Motion for SOJ for cause

Gross misconduct of Judge Veronica Mathein

with 53 comments


Judge Mathein has been observed for many months now by court watchers. Her failure to follow the law and her harm to children in ripping them from parents without due cause including toddlers, forcing baseless limited supervised visitation, denying due process, and allowing false statements via hearsay without substantiation in order to vilify a parent without opportunity to cross-examine or present rebuttal; evidence is beyond grotesque. She has abdicated her responsibilities as a judge and simply rubber-stamps illegal recommendations by corrupt child representatives such as (now judge) Regina Scanniccio, Ralla Klepick and David Wessel, who have committed contempt of court by ignoring court orders appointing them to and  failing to investigate the circumstances of the divorce and custody cases (interview relatives on both sides, teachers, doctors, counselors and parents) and then present hearsay instead of evidence-based argument to the court at trial. The child reps also illegally fail to give the parents a pre-trial memorandum explaining the evidence-based argument (discovery) prior to trial.

This amounts to federal felony funding fraud as the courts and child reps receive federal dollars under Social Security laws, 42 U.S.C. Title IV-D section 654 to aid the court in determining child custody and to determine the “best interest of the children”. Where are you Patrick Fitzgerald and Eric Holder and other members of the U.S. DOJ?

This Motion to the Illinois Supreme Court for a Supervisory Order is illustrative of the pervasive injustice and unconstitutional acts in the Family Section (Domestic Division) of the Circuit Court of Cook County. Intensive investigation is needed and most of the family court judges must be replaced with competent judges as well as many child representatives need to be prosecuted for contempt of court and felony federal funding fraud as well as fraud upon the court and judges.
