Vote NO on all judges on judicial retention ballots every election

with 5 comments


UPDATE: 11/10/16 Despite corrupt acts described below every judge was retained by judicial retention ballot because public ignores this part of ballot & leaves it blank. Yet if only  a few hundred to a 1000 people would vote no on each judge we could throw them out! Not ONE judge was removed, even Judge Pantle and others whom bar associations or other groups deemed unqualified.

The time is NOW to give Crook County and the corrupt officials in Crook County a message that the public will no longer stand for corrupt judges.

Shelton reviewed 15 years of election results on judicial retention ballots. Despite many judges being rated as UNQUALIFIED by many bar associations each election cycle, NO judges have ever been voted out by the public!

This is because the judges pay Alderman Burke’s lackeys or associates to order signs to place on the lawns of members of the Sheriff’s department and Secretary of State’s department (or they won’t keep their jobs or promotions) and use sheriff deputies in plain clothes on government time to hand out cards with list of judges to vote for at polling places.

Lawyers and other judges must also vote for the machine picks or there are consequences as there are consequences with government employees in Crook County who fail to sell (or buy) enough tickets for political fund-raising activities.

Most judges are retained by votes of only 500 to 2500 total.  It takes just 1  vote to retain them or a simple majority of the votes cast.

Most people don’t bother to vote for judges as who knows who is qualified out of the list of 50 to 100 or more judges on the ballot.

So if everyone would pledge to vote NO on ALL judges on the judicial retention ballots consistently and pass the word to all your friends and pass the word that we ALL MUST VOTE, then THE PEOPLE can USE THEIR POWER to stir up the system!  IMAGINE IF 1/3 OF THE 400 JUDGES WERE NOT RETAINED AND THE IL SUPREME COURT HAD TO SUDDENLY REPLACE THEM BY APPOINTMENT – THE SYSTEM WOULD BE IN DISARRAY!  THIS WOULD SEND A CLEAR MESSAGE TO THE CORRUPT THAT THE PEOPLE WILL NO LONGER STAND FOR CORRUPTION AND INCOMPETENT JUDGES.

Yes a few competent judges may be lost, but that’s the price we have to pay to make a statement and to exercise the power of the people for REFORM of our CORRUPT CROOK COUNTY COURTS!

PLEDGE TO VOTE NO ON ALL JUDGES ON THE RETENTION BALLOTS AND PLEDGE TO TELL YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS TO MAKE THE PLEDGE TOO, EVERY ELECTION UNTIL TRUE COURT AND JUDICIAL REFORM OCCURS!

Bail in Illinois is Fraud & Supports a Criminal Enterprise

with one comment


The Circuit Court of Cook County is a criminal enterprise with judges doing illegal acts to support this enterprise. Part of the corruption is ingrained in unconstitutional Illinois statutes written so that the judges could abuse them – surely written under the influence of Cook County corrupt officials. These are the statutes about bail.

The scheme goes like this: Bail laws state that the Cook County Circuit Court Clerk can keep 10 % of bond posted even when one is innocent as a fee for processing the bail. This means if you are innocent and the bail is $1000, the court keeps $10.  If the bail is $1 million, the court keeps $10,000 FOR THE SAME SERVICE!!  This is fraud under federal law. This denies equal protection under the law as a person loses their property (money) under fraudulent circumstances (clerk charges different people different amounts for same service of processing bond) without due process of law – and the judges have an incentive to set outrageous bail amounts. 

For example when a medical biller ties their fee to send in a medical bill to the doctor’s fee by charging by percentage (say 10%) of the doctor’s income, instead of charging per piece of service (per bill say $10) this causes the medical biller to be paid FOR THE DOCTOR’S work. So if the biller works for a surgeon whose average bill is $3,000, they get $300 every time they send in a bill and for the same amount of work if they send in a bill for a psychiatrist of $200, they only keep $20. The US Attorney has convicted medical billers of this fraud upon the State as Medicaid is essentially paying 10 % of the payments to the doctors for their services to the medical biller. The correct thing to do is for the biller to charge a standard fee for each bill no matter how large the bill.

Therefore, through fraud and essentially extortion of defendants, both innocent and guilty, the court clerk funds her office. Then Illinois banned bail bondsmen to make it easier for the clerk to quarantee this fraudulent income.

That is why bail is set so high in Illinois. It is usually exorbitant in order to fund the County office of the Court Clerk. With the present downturn in the economy the bails seem to be increasing!  I have proof that an innocent victim of corruption was wrongfully charged of kicking an officer in the chest with a disabled leg (physically impossible for her) from her wheelchair. She had no prior convictions and is indigent. Bail was set at $100,000.  I also have evidence that bail on several misdemeanor trespass charges was set at $25,000.  We need a federal investigation.

Illinois surely is a criminal enterprise!  Where are the feds?
