An attorney called Richard Fine has seen his license to practice law revoked, a massive fine of $47,000 placed on him and has been held in jail since March 2009. This has all occurred because he dared to question the neutrality of the courts. Prior to the incident he was a distinguished attorney who had made a name for himself by standing up for taxpayers rights. He won several cases against the county (LA), including the repayment of child support money and interest thereof that was taken without cause (amounting to $85 million in repaid funds). His most recent case led him into severe trouble with the courts.
He realized that several of his cases against the county were being dismissed by judges for bizarre reasons, when he did some investigation into these strange occurrences he discovered that the county was making illegal payments to judges and, at the same time, the county wasn’t losing any court cases being ruled over by a judge. Mr. Fine, obligated by oath to do so, took these findings to the judges themselves and said that wherever there is a slightest hint of partiality towards any side, the judge in question should voluntarily step aside.
Far from doing this, the judges banded together and refused to step aside. When Mr. Fine attempted to fight back the judges managed to remove his right to practice law by charging him with “moral Turpitude” (conduct that is considered contrary to community standards of justice, honesty or good morals). When the judges placed a fine of $47,000 which he refused to pay, he was placed in prison where he has stayed for almost a year. It is the height of injustice and clearly shows that corruption of the courts has stretched to an unbelievable level. Judges are being bribed by the County to give false rulings.
When Richard Fine stood up against this corruption he was subject to a deliberate and false attack upon him. He has not even been allowed media access as any interview requests have been turned down by La county Sheriff Leroy D. Baca (who, coincidently, was also responsible for the incarceration of Mr. Fine).
If you wish to fight this injustice then you can contact the sheriffs Department Headquarters and demand immediate media access to and release of Richard Fine as well as the reinstatement of his license to practice law and the removal of the fine.

(FEDERALJACK) National debt is soaring, the private sector is contracting, the public sector is growing and the government is continually wasting money that you haven’t even earned yet. You have heard the countless stories about how the private sector created the economic crash and that government intervention is the answer but I can assure you that this is a lie. It was government intervention that caused malinvestment by the private sector, it was government intervention that caused the crisis and it is government intervention that is prolonging and deepening the crisis.
This entire economic crisis is not something that was created in a few years; it has been brewing for decades. There is a natural trend in a economy that when times are good people will become careless investors because they don’t think anything can go wrong. This breeds bad investment which in turn causes a downturn. This is a natural cycle but the governments of most western countries have, over the past few decades, not been allowing the crash to happen. We just saw it now, instead of allowing the bad businesses to fail they prop them up with borrowed money, they artificially lower interest rates and they command everyone to keep spending. This call to keep spending has been largely obeyed by the public, like good citizens they went out got a loan and bought a car or a house or something else they didn’t need and couldn’t afford.
Once these businesses have been propped up they no longer control their own policies so they can’t respond properly to the market. As a downturn happens banks should naturally put interest rates up and this encourages people to save. This money that is being saved is then invested by the bank into future industry (not current industry since there isn’t a market for it). This means that as the recession lifts the infrastructure is already there for a quick recovery. Instead of this happening the government has set spending targets for the banks that they bailed out which means that they can’t make sound future investment they have to make flawed investment in failing businesses.
As this happens we see the re-inflation of the credit bubble that just popped. With the government and banks discouraging people o save the banks don’t get the capital to back up their loans. This is why we will see a bigger crisis in the near future in which all of the bad investments made now will fail and banks will once again go into crisis and the government will once again bail them out. So you may be thinking that there is no problem, so long as we repeat this cycle we will avoid the major recession but this is a false understanding because the only reason the government is able to re-inflate the credit bubble is because they have taken out massive loans from overseas investors. As long as these foreign investors still think that it is wise to invest money then there won’t be a problem but sooner or later they will realise that Britain and America can’t repay the loans they have taken and then they will demand their loans returned at which point the government will go bankrupt. The IMF will be called in and everything will go into meltdown. Taxes will be huge, banks will go bust as the government subsidies dry up, businesses will go under due to the lack of access to loans and the economy will collapse leaving the biggest recession n history in its wake.
Remember that every penny that the government loans is deepening our crisis evermore and every pound squandered on public services is furthering the problem of there being too large a public sector for the private sector to support. The British national debt has now reached 2/3rds of GDP. £800 billion of debt, and that figure is expected to go up by £173 billion this year due to the massive budget deficit. Every person in Britain is born with over £10,000 of debt to work off for the government on top of their normal taxes to run the government and their own living expenses. So brace yourself for another recession. Save, don’t spend, pay off rather than take out debt. No matter what you are told by the government and mainstream media you must save so that you have something that you can survive on through the next recession.
(FEDERALJACK) The UK governments appeal against the courts decision to release 7 paragraphs has been rejected and the document has now been released. It shows clearly that the UK government knew about and at the very least did nothing to oppose the illegal detention and torture of Binyam Mohammed. The document reads as follows:
“It was reported that a new series of interviews was conducted by the United States authorities prior to 17 May 2001 as part of a new strategy designed by an expert interviewer.
v) It was reported that at some stage during that further interview process by the United States authorities, BM had been intentionally subjected to continuous sleep deprivation. The effects of the sleep deprivation were carefully observed.
vi) It was reported that combined with the sleep deprivation, threats and inducements were made to him. His fears of being removed from United States custody and “disappearing” were played upon.
vii) It was reported that the stress brought about by these deliberate tactics was increased by him being shackled in his interviews
viii) It was clear not only from the reports of the content of the interviews but also from the report that he was being kept under self-harm observation, that the inter views were having a marked effect upon him and causing him significant mental stress and suffering.
ix) We regret to have to conclude that the reports provide to the SyS made clear to anyone reading them that BM was being subjected to the treatment that we have described and the effect upon him of that intentional treatment.
x) The treatment reported, if had been administered on behalf of the United Kingdom, would clearly have been in breach of the undertakings given by the United Kingdom in 1972. Although it is not necessary for us to categorise the treatment reported, it could readily be contended to be at the very least cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment by the United States authorities”
David Milliband had strongly opposed the release of the documents under the prentents of national security, an excuse used all to often. The real reason for the governments opposition to the release of the document is most likely o be the fact that it shows their knowledge of the illegal detention and torture which means that several government officials should be prosecuted under the 1998 Human Rights Act among others.
(FEDERALJACK) The Iraq Inquiry, like the 9/11 commission, was one of the most anticipated investigations of modern times. At last people thought that there would be an opportunity to bring those that illegally invaded Iraq to account. With over a million people dead and hundreds of thousands of more injured, maimed and crippled as a result of the war, the British public, understandably, want those responsible to be punished for their crimes. With the Iraq Inquiry several months into its investigation it seems fitting that we explore whether or not it will serve the purpose that so many have hoped for.
The BBC, among other News Channels, has been stressing that this is merely an Inquiry and not a trial. They have even had numerous ‘experts’ on international law claim that international law is hazy and unclear. This is, however, a misleading claim at best. If you read the Nuremberg principles (available at http://www.icrc.org/ihl.nsf/FULL/390?OpenDocument) then you will see under the heading of crimes against peace that these crimes include the following:
(i) Planning, preparation, initiation or waging of a war of aggression or a war in violation of international treaties, agreements or assurances;
(ii) Participation in a common plan or conspiracy for the accomplishment of any of the acts mentioned under (i)
Under this definition of a crime against peace the Iraq war is illegal unless it can be proven beyond doubt that Iraq posed a sufficient threat for the war to be deemed a defensive war. This is where the Iraq Inquiry becomes essential, if they find the war to be an aggressive war then prosecution should follow so long as the justice system operates as it is intended to. The Nuremberg Principles even state explicitly that:
The fact that a person acted pursuant to order of his Government or of a superior does not relieve him from responsibility under international law, provided a moral choice was in fact possible to him
This throws the testimony of the so called ‘experts’ on international law into disrepute. There is nothing remotely hazy or unclear about the Nuremberg principles or indeed the European human right convention or the UN charter, all of which could be used to prosecute those responsible for the war. So although the Iraq Inquiry isn’t a trial it should lead to a criminal prosecution so long as it, along with the justice system, performs its function properly.
Unfortunately the chances of prosecutions actually happening are very low due to the lack of people with the necessary authority willing to take the risk. Even the chair of the Iraq Inquiry felt it prudent to remind the public that it wasn’t a trial when Tony Blair was called to the Inquiry. There was a media propaganda campaign both prior to and subsequent to Tony Blair giving evidence but you must remember that the law is explicit and on our side. We must continue to campaign for the arrest and subsequent conviction of Tony Blair along with other key cabinet members such as Gordon Brown who bankrolled the war.
