Conspiracy Nation -- Vol. 9 Num. 82

("Quid coniuratio est?")


(December 9, 1996; Transcription by Conspiracy Nation)

Hi! Sherman Skolnick, Citizens' Committee to Clean Up the Courts, 9800 South Oglesby.

The major court corruption is in the Federal Appeals Court, in major cities, like Chicago. The undisputed court record shows it is day; the crooked panel of Appeals Court judges says it is night, and they make a crooked ruling favoring a bank or large corporate interest.

Hearing a lot of this are key federal appeals judges in Chicago: Chief Judge Richard A. Posner (office, 312-435-5806) and his sidekick, Judge Frank H. Easterbrook (312-435-5808) -- both, once law professors at Rockefeller's University of Chicago. Posner, a judge, continues to reportedly represent that university's billion dollar stock portfolio fund. Posner and Easterbrook promote an unusual theory of law, called "Economic Efficiency." That is, an underdog should not be allowed, in court, to prevail in discrimination and other damage suits against multi-national pirates. It hurts profits!

These two judges, and their gang, issue rulings falsifying the facts. Such as in a big bucks anti-Trust case against Western Union. Some lawyers were nearly destroyed when they blew the whistle.

In 1991, I was the only journalist at an Appeals Court hearing involving the records of the Chicago branch of Italy's largest bank: Banca Nazionale del Lavoro [BNL], owned in part by the Pope. Afterwards, I interviewed two participants who confirmed that secret records showed George Bush, then President, was the private business partner of Saddam Hussein, the Iraqi strongman. They showed billions of dollars of oil kick-backs from the militarily-weak producers in the Persian Gulf. It could have been the largest tax-evasion case in U.S. history -- against George Bush!

Before his later ruling, the Bush Justice Department leaked out details that Judge Posner had taken bribes in 8 other cases. (Being on the ball, we already knew about that.) Once blackmailed, Judge Posner ruled the BNL case should be removed from the courthouse. Only one smaller newspaper ran my exclusive story.

Before becoming a judge, Posner ran a litigation services firm. In plain language, he was a bagman and a fixer. He was also chief anti-Trust consultant to CBS. Then, as judge, he refused to disqualify himself in an important anti-Trust case involving CBS. Hey! Guess who won!?

In the early 1970s, our work led to the jailing, for bribery, of Posner's predecessor, Chicago federal appeals judge Otto Kerner, Jr. Since forming this group in 1963, I have been falsely jailed for contempt, wheelchair and all, by corrupt judges who I directly accused of bribery. Judge Easterbrook, at the behest of his crony, Chief Judge Posner, are ordering me and an associate of mine to be barred from their court, the U.S. Court of Appeals, 7th Circuit, Chicago. It revolves around our case, where a Mafia-linked sheriff, at gunpoint, stopped our on-location cable TV production. We were making a video of the sheriff's people breaking into my associate's (Joseph Andreuccetti) home and stealing our cable TV tapes and documents relating to federal court corruption.

From what is happening, it appears that this gang of crooked federal judges and bankers is preparing to falsely jail us for contempt. Public outcry can stop them.

If you know about other examples of corruption of Judges Posner and Easterbrook and their mob, write to the Citizens Committee to Clean Up the Courts, 9800 South Oglesby Ave., Chicago, IL 60617. (Phone: 312-375-5741)
