These vignettes are from Kennedy's book "Holodeck Law" where nothing is as it appears, and where the plaintiff is never to be seen again - with money.  She states:  

I hope these early chapter releases will help those good people who are
still shocked when faced with the reality of the court and justice systems, and also for some who still have not yet grasped what is occurring, or who are still unwilling to believe what they have seen with their own eyes in our rogue courts, which are accountable to nobody, but themselves.  "The individual is handicapped by coming face to face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists". J. Edgar Hoover, former head of the FBI.  Let us not be invalids.  Let us face the truth so it can be addressed while we still have time to correct it.   


For those who have never watched the television classic "Star Trek," according to this show, a holodeck is a computerized program that can "reproduce" a place of paradise, or a day in World War II, or whatever scene the characters choose to create. In the show, the hardworking spaceship inhabitants who needed a little "R & R" from the tireless tasks of captaining or crewing a spaceship would take breaks like we would take a vacation. These breaks, however, would be in a fantasy setting, the holodeck, where the participants could become a part of the program of their choosing. It is like playing a game of virtual reality. Except for the person using the holodeck program, all the characters on the stage of the holodeck are mere holographic images. Although everything looks real, it is not as it appears.

Until this past year I had not realized, or connected the similarities between this fantasy holodeck and the
shocking reality of our American courtrooms today, where, as in the holodeck, nothing is as it appears. But, like so many other things in life, as one accumulates knowledge, and uses their own experiences, observation skills, wisdom, and reevaluates what has been seen and heard, a reality or a truth becomes more apparent.

The American courtroom is created by a
legal aristocracy who will stop at nothing to keep money and power in the hands of a few "power-elite" control mongers. Much to my disappointment, at this stage in my legal career, the eerie similarities between the runaway American courts and the fantasy holodeck can no longer be denied. This Divine Right of Kings is still alive and well, but hidden carefully by the elite, within the bigger holodeck called America.  On this holodeck, we are taught that America exists as a republic, but many are finding out that it is nothing more than a disguised feudal system, where the rich still rule the poor.  Much of their perpetuation rule is guaranteed through the disciplining of the people by Holodeck Courts, which even Congress fears.  This system of unjust discipline assures the lords and vassals that they will always have serfs over which to rule.  Serfs are not only "We the People," but also include those who may have been lords and vassals, or who have the potential to enter this class, but have refused to join the elite because they still believe in right and wrong.  

Although we have been
indoctrinated by our government-funded schools to blindly believe that justice is found in the courtroom, the American Court is what I call "Holodeck Law" where nothing is as it appears. A television commercial coined the phrase, "image is everything," and as long as the public is unaware that American "justice" is a mere image, the government hand will always be quicker than the public eye.  Until Americans are awakened by their own court-hardships, each will continue to repeat the words, like a parrot wanting a cracker, that America has the most fair court system in the world.  Some have come to realize that this is not true as the justice system continues to advance, plundering  American citizens at its whim.  "The evils of tyranny are rarely seen, but by him who resists it."    John Hay  1872.  Unfortunately for us all, being a victim of the court's abuse is just a matter of time.  

Like the Wizard of Oz, who used smoke and mirrors to operate Oz from behind the scenes in virtual anonymity, but who was finally exposed for the fraud he truly was, it is imperative that the public discovers and exposes who or what is behind the curtain of our rogue justice system.  For those of us who have begun to remove the veil, I believe that "We the People," must become the Fourth Branch of Government who must, collectively, look out for each other's interests and provide the checks and balances our government was designed to perform.  Hopefully, in taking this active stance, we will be able to restore justice so that we can again be the master and the government our servant as originally designed in the Constitution and in the Bill of Rights.

What I now refer to as the "courtroom holodeck" is
the scene of the crime, and the stage where this chimera is played out. In this virtual reality the judges and attorney(s) are holograms (mere images of justice), all working in the labyrinth of a "Litigation Vortex." The unsuspecting public who either gets sucked into the vortex (unwillingly brought into court) or suckered into the maelstrom (thinking that justice would be received through the legal system), are real characters, but they do not realize they are on the court holodeck, nor do they realize that they are not being protected, or zealously represented as their grade school teacher had taught them they would be in our government-funded elementary schools. They do not realize that nothing is as it appears in the holodeck court.

If one is unfortunate enough to fall on to the turf of the holodeck court, one must know the Holodeck Rule Book, who is the real enemy, and understand the holodeck strategies in order to survive and even sometimes thrive in the "Litigation Vortex."

When you voluntarily go into court you will find (or have found) that many times you will lose even though the law is clearly on your side.  Then, after the loss, due to your sense of justice, you begin filing lawsuits or complaints against judges, you appeal decisions, and spend time and other resources thinking of other legal strategies for seeking recourse, etc.  In essence, you are asking the judges to find themselves corrupt.

When stated that way I think most of you can see that this is probably not going to happen.  But even worse, you become occupied for years on a course that costs you large sums of money and keeps you busy with very little to show for it except perhaps high blood pressure.  Most often you simply become even more outraged and impoverished than when you innocently started down this path many years before.  Simply put, this is what I call the "Litigation Vortex" funneling onto the Holodeck Court, where nothing is as it appears and where the plaintiff is never to be seen again - with money. I felt by releasing this chapter, many might benefit and better understand what I say when I tell you to get off the courts' "turf."

In spite of the Holodeck, however, I have found ways to win in court.  It is not impossible, but unless you know the "real" rules of court, you will not be able to endure or succeed in it.  My strategy takes a lot of understanding of the facts, the law, an understanding of the real strategies of the opposition (see Triangle and Two Defense), a thorough understanding of the overall corruptness of the system, an understanding of military strategies (believe it or not), and it becomes very case specific and tailored and must be tweaked as the case progresses. Be forewarned that this strategy is also a very dangerous one, especially for lawyers who use it, since by implementing it you eventually show the other side that you know their game and are not willing to play.  An attorney or citizen may get to use this strategy between two to four times before he or she is exposed as the enemy of the state (not playing along with their game in their Holodeck Court).  The system will then implement the "and two" part of the Triangle and Two Defense against you.  Attorneys in particular are susceptible to this counterattack by the system.

These released chapters are vignettes that may help you understand where you are in your litigation, what happened if you are already through your litigation nightmare, or perhaps will help you comprehend that the battle to win back our courts has to be fought off of the court's turf.  The writing is fairly short, and not all inclusive, but I think it will help you be more effective and help you stop doing the same things our poor predecessor citizens have unsuccessfully tried because they did not understand the real rules, or the real game.  We must know what the opposition is doing so that we know how to combat it in all legal, nonviolent ways available.

The Litigation Vortex

Whether you enter the "Litigation Vortex" willingly (suckered in naively - don't feel bad, attorneys have done it too), or whether you get sucked into the maelstrom like some alleged "criminals" and some attorneys on alleged "disciplinary" charges have, you enter into the "legal holodeck" where nothing is as it appears.  

You are a hard working man, hardly ever missed a day of work in your life.  Unsuspectingly, you have found yourself in the legal system where your grade school teacher taught you justice would prevail.  You learn to research your case, try to make everyone understand your facts, and how justice would be served by finding in your favor.  Initially, everyone seems to understand.  The judge, and sometimes even the opposing attorney appear to want to understand and get to justice . . . and the clerk was so pleasant.  You know she saw that you were an honest man.  And the "Holodeck Court" stage is set . . .  

Having no reason not to believe that what you heard in grade school was absolutely true, you spend your money on filings, legal advice (even if an attorney will not take the case), or legal fees if an attorney will take it.  Sometimes you even "count yourself blessed" that you have found an attorney who is willing to help you - so you think (see Triangle and Two Defense for more on this).  You know your case is a slam-dunk win.  And thus the curtain on the holodeck court stage opens and the bait-and-switch begins . . .

You think certainly the first couple of rulings must have been a misunderstanding. You may tell yourself that you have to do more legal research and write more clearly.  Then, they will certainly see that you have been wronged.  So you continue to spend your money and your time on this matter, even missing increasing amounts of work, because you are in this to right a wrong, just like your grade school teacher taught you.  You certainly can't turn around now - you've come too far and you are just getting the hang of the legal research. You may still cry when the National Anthem is sung - and you certainly put your hand over your heart like any good American would.  Perhaps you even fought to defend our freedom like so many honorable men (and women) have.

By now, they have you in the clutches of the "Double B."  What is the "Double B" you ask?  "Busy and Broke!"  

Due to the bait and switch maneuver, you are now on the defense even though you are listed as the plaintiff.  Next comes the final preparation for the dog-and-pony show - the final preparation for your day in court on the holodeck stage - and the implementation of the "Triple C" is ripe and ready.

As you get thoroughly busy, and more broke trying to answer the defense's frivolous motions, you continuously have to show that it is they who have obfuscated evidence and lied, not you as they have accused you.  You spend day and night trying to explain yourself to the court.  You answer their accusations by repeatedly explaining that you did not claim your wife on your taxes because she did not work, you injured your back ten years ago in a legitimate workers' compensation injury, and that you and your wife went to marriage counseling fifteen years ago only after your youngest son died.  

Yes, the "Triple C" is being implemented against you in just its proper sequence.  What is the "Triple C" you ask again?  This is when good citizens, who's only crime is that they naively asked the courts to rule justly, are labeled as either a:

1. Criminal (who will believe him, he is a criminal tax-evader),
2. Con-man (who will believe him, he lied on his tax return, and was a malingerer from work), and/or
3. Crazy person (who would believe him, he went to a shrink and is paranoid delusional - ("get an I.M.E. - [Independent Medical Exam] quick and get this psycho diagnosed!  Call some doctor who needs our repeat business" yells opposing counsel back stage).  

The "Double B, Triple C" is in full effect now.  You are not only exhausted, but you now have to worry about your reputation, the IRS audit that is bound to happen due to the opposition's trumped-up allegations, or an insurance company's claim that you were fraudulent in that workers' compensation injury so long ago.  As the morass of this whirling dervish sucks you down further and further into its clutches, you can no longer see the path along which to exit. " What have I gotten myself into and how did I get here", you think as your friends start expressing the opinion that maybe you are a little too obsessed about this case?

As soon as the dust settles, albeit for only a moment, you finally begin to realize that maybe your grade school teacher missed something.  By now you are thoroughly engulfed in the "Litigation Vortex" and you decide the only way out is to ask your "master," if it please the court, if you could  be excused from the case?  So, confused, broke, and worn down, as you try to escape the Litigation Vortex's legal assault, you choose this road to perdition, and the judge quickly rules that you are dropping the case as he slams down his loaded gavel!  "Dismissed", he bellows!  But then you learn that you are indeed a money maker - but for the other side - as your master gleefully rules that you must pay opposing party's legal fees and costs for filing such a frivolous law suit against them in the first place (usually known as displaying "vexatious conduct"), and, in shock and confusion, and with a cold, tightly knotted anger in the pit of your stomach that will not go away, you quietly and sadly bend your knee and humbly go back to picking the "master's" cotton.

And so it goes in the "Litigation Vortex" on the stage of the Holodeck Court where nothing is as it appears, and where a plaintiff is never to be seen again - with money.

This description of course, is just the beginning of the Litigation Vortex because you may now decide to appeal, file a complaint against the judge, and continue asking the judges to find themselves corrupt.  Although you now know that your grade school teacher was wrong, there is still something in you that cannot accept that the injustices you experienced are the status quo. So you continue to go round and round in the vortex trying to find someone who will help you prove that what had happened to you was just a fluke.  At this stage, you still believe that the next judge will certainly see the manifest injustice that was perpetrated against you and will make the appropriate ruling to correct it.

I liken these subsequent filings to someone who is a compulsive gambler who only wants to win his money back. Although it is not an addiction or compulsion you have, you and the gambler are mistaken in not realizing that the odds are against you and that the deck is stacked.  Although not addicted we cannot be like that gambler, who does not accept reality and, therefore, continues to become more busy and broke. We must realize that we are indeed on a holodeck in the Litigation Vortex.

There are ways to possibly survive, and sometimes even thrive in the "Litigation Vortex," but you need to learn more about the real rules of court before I can even begin to describe methods that can work in certain settings. The stage is further set in the Triangle and Two Defense section of my book, "Holodeck Law" and may be of particular interest to anyone who has ever played basketball.  Until we understand the stage we are on, I will not be able to describe some techniques which can be used to get you extracted from the vortex, perhaps with your shirt still on your back and maybe even with a few dollars in your pocket.  But realize, that no matter what you learn from this book, the deck will almost always be stacked against you and you must first realize this truth before you will ever begin to have a fighting chance if and when you find yourself on the holodeck court.  

Triangle and Two Defense is designed to help you learn who your real enemy(s) is (are).  It describes who really has you turned upside-down in the centrifuge of "Courtroom, Inc." while you spin violently until every last dime is centrifugally spun from your pockets.  It also describes some of the real rules of the Holodeck Court.  

When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child.  When I became a man (or woman), I put childish ways behind me.  I Cor. 13: 11

The Triangle and Two Defense

Once you understand and accept that there exists a "Litigation Vortex," and that you can either be sucked or suckered into it, you also need to know what the rules are so you can survive, or perhaps occasionally thrive once you are trapped in its clutches.  Some of these rules are discussed in this chapter.  

Rule One, of course, is to understand you are on a Holodeck where nothing is as it appears.

Rule Two is to know that the "Litigation Vortex"
does indeed exist.

Rule Three, and the third principle one must know in order to survive or perhaps even thrive in a battle in the Holodeck Court, is to understand who your real enemies are. Normally, your enemies are easy to discern. Common sense tells you that they are the ones attacking you.  For example, if you are the plaintiff in a case, then it is certainly reasonable to think that the defendant is your enemy in this legal battle.  Because you are on the Holodeck Court, however, you must continually remind yourself that nothing is as it appears.

Although you are suing, or being sued by a litigant, that litigant is not your enemy.  Although, at some point you will have to deal with him or her, that litigant is the
low man on the totem pole; last in rank so to speak.  In actuality, he or she is also a victim of the holodeck, and probably does not even understand Rule One, Rule Two or Rule Three. He has almost certainly not yet learned that he is also a stooge, merely a revenue source on the holodeck of Courtroom, Inc., where nothing is as it appears.

In the Holodeck Court, to identify your true enemy you have to study and follow the real strategy of the case, which in actuality is being used against both of the litigants by those who allege to be your protectors or who alleged to be the protectors of justice itself.  By understanding the real strategy, just like in the Wizard of Oz, you can begin to see who is truly behind the holodeck curtain.

One of the most basic strategies the opposition uses in a civil holodeck case is what I call the "Triangle and Two Defense." Now I know all of you basketball fans are interested.  As many know, on a basketball court there are five offensive players (the team who has the ball) and are trying to score, and there are five defenders who are trying to stop the offense from scoring. The most basic defense in a basketball game is called one-on-one defense (or man on man defense). This is where each man on defense covers one man on offense, and vice versa when the ball changes hands.

Sometimes a team will change its tactics and go into a zone defense. This means that each defender guards an area instead of following an opposing player around the court.  In a zone defense only if the offensive player comes into the defender's area, or zone, does the defender guard and defend against an opposing team member.

To  understand who is your enemy on the holodeck, you also have to understand a special defense used on the basketball court called a "triangle and two defense."   This is used on a basketball court when one or two people on offense are very talented and proficient at scoring. In this defense three of the five defenders play a zone defense (they have their areas, or zones on the court which they cover). This only accounts for three defenders, however, when there are five defenders on the court. The two other defenders are assigned to guard the best or the two best players on the offensive side "one-on-one." So in this defense, you have three defenders guarding a zone or area, and the other two defenders stopping the best player(s) on the team no matter where that player(s) may roam.

As you can see, this special Triangle & Two Defense (hereinafter, "TT&D"), is designed and implemented when there are offensive players that can really hurt the defense's team more than the other offensive players.  All right, enough about basketball 101. Now we need to equate this to the Holodeck Court.

Similarly, on the holodeck court the "TT&D" also exists and the defensive players also have assignments or zones they must guard.  Unlike the basketball court, on the holodeck court, the judge hologram, and the two attorney holograms are guarding zones on the court of injustice. They each have a specific zone they occupy just as defenders on a basketball court. The judge hologram's primary responsibility, or zone is to see that the case is going in such a way that will facilitate and maximize the roles and efforts of the two attorney holograms playing on the Holodeck Court (docket management, courtroom evidence admissions/exclusions, jury manipulation, witness submissions, making ambiguous decisions that call for clarification and other methods used to prolong the case and make it more expensive, etc.).

In summary, the judge hologram guards and defends his court room to make sure that anyone who enters his zone is either aware and compliant with the unspoken, unwritten holodeck court rules, or is too ignorant to cause a threat to the holodeck's preservation. Although the judge hologram's responsibility seems simple, it varies in detail and complexity based on the specific situations that may arise in the case. The judge's role also varies greatly depending on who the attorneys are, especially the plaintiff's attorney, i.e., are they willing to play, either knowingly or unwittingly, by the rules on the holodeck court.

The attorney holograms are also defenders in the "Triangle and Two Defense." Their main function, or zone is to see that the case continues on, and on, and on . . . with no end in sight and without the clients' ever becoming aware of the reality of the holodeck.  Of course this means that the attorney holograms must help each other keep the clients from discovering that their attorneys are not working for either party's best interest, but only for their own interests, and for the best interest of the Holodeck Court.  These attorney holograms know that the Holodeck Court is their true source of income and repeat business and can also be the source of their demise should they disturb the holodeck's smooth operation.  

Although these holograms know that at the end of the game (the case), when the final horn sounds, everyone will look up at the score board and see that the deep pocket has won, the attorney holograms must keep their clients fairly emotional and in the dark during the proceedings so that the game does not end prematurely.  As the case ripens, the attorney holograms rake in their money for themselves and for the purpose of funding the holodeck's perpetuation.

The judge hologram, who came up through this holodeck system as an attorney of only the most special bloodline, and who was promoted by the State Bar Hologram, once he had proven his worth by displaying his willingness to play by the unspoken, unwritten rules of the Holodeck, will assist in preserving the Holodeck.  This cooperation makes the attorney hologram duties and deceptions much less difficult then they may seem, unless someone from reality, who still loves the truth, and is able to identify the holodeck's hypocrisy is sucked or suckered into the Litigation Vortex.

Meanwhile, the attorney holograms make sure they "check all the boxes" so that their clients have no recourse against them.  Of course the attorney holograms know that the State Bar refuses to look into the attorney holograms' lack of strategy in the case as a cause for discipline so the attorneys can continue to siphon their clients funds with impunity.  The Bar hologram's secret dismissal system further permits the holograms to grease the Litigation Vortex machine without penalty.  In this way all the holograms are amply protected from public recourse, and all the holograms share in the wealth as they together continuously feast from the defenseless public trough without detection.

To make sure the case is producing maximum revenue, the attorney holograms will send out some sort of benign discovery to the other side and the other side will give benign answers back. This is known as the Holodeck Rule Four:  Where there shall be no harm, there shall be no foul (otherwise known as "no harm no foul").  As long as everyone is cooperating in the Holodeck, the process is extremely smooth, without harm to the Holodeck, as it operates just like clockwork.  

Usually toward the end of the month when the billing sheets are all ready to be sent, the attorney holograms will become outraged at the "opposition" attorney-hologram's tactics. The defenseless clients of the holograms become outraged as well, because they are told that the other side is behaving so unethically. Many motions and hearings occur during this time and the resultant bills from the attorney holograms are sent to their respective clients to be paid within 30 days.

Unlike the basketball court, whose teams utilize all five defenders, the Triangle and Two Defense in the Holodeck Court of injustice may not always need the two extra one-on-one defenders who are waiting in the wings, but the holograms know that such defenders are there and ready to assist as necessary. The first one-on-one defender is your state bar hologram, which claims its function is to "protect the public."  Although the bar's eye is always watching for an opportunity to continually dupe the public into thinking it stands for justice, on the Holodeck Court it is used as a hammer against either attorney who is either not aware of the holodeck rules and breaks one, or if he refuses to play on the holodeck court and disrupts the otherwise, smooth operation of the Holodeck.  Additionally, the
bar buzzards hover over their holodeck courts seeking small, innocent attorney prey to target whose demise will help the bar hologram pad its numbers in order to deceptively demonstrate its worth as protectors of justice to the duped, busy and apathetic public.   Meanwhile the attorney holograms who are working in cooperation on the holodeck, are secretly dismissed from complaints by the state bar hologram.

The second one-on-one defender is your state legislator hologram. Usually rising from the Holodeck Court (whether an attorney or a law enforcement hologram), and disguised as the overseer of the judges and the law, in the holodeck these "elected" officials assist in keeping the real rules of the holodeck secret and work to keep the holodeck operating properly as well.  There primary duty is to make sure the laws favor perpetuation of the holodeck,
which includes protecting the judge holograms at all costs.  This is why you cannot name the last judge to be impeached in America (hint: go back in history over 100 years).

As you can see if any attorney does not play by the holodeck rules, whether ignorant of them or knowingly resisting them, that attorney(s) becomes the one who can hurt the defender's team the most. That is where the "and two" of the "Triangle and Two Defense" steps in and takes over.

The Bar and the Legislators will work hard to guard their maverick attorney in Holodeck Law. This is usually accomplished by accusing the
maverick (the real protectors of justice), with some heinous offense or perhaps of having some loathsome disease. The most susceptible maverick is the attorney for the "little guy" but it can also be the defense attorney as well (most applicable in criminal cases when the maverick is going up against the prosecutor hologram who is working hand in hand with the prosecutorial judge hologram.  In this case, both holograms are working in concert to replenish the prison industry and the maverick is not cooperating).  

As you readers probably know, another susceptible party is a pro se litigant, especially if he is not aware of the Rules of the Holodeck. It is all telling that attorneys in Virginia are not permitted to assist a pro se litigant in the Federal 4th Circuit, under penalty inflicted by the Virginia State Bar hologram. Why is this so you may ask?  
Understand that with any holodeck, the holograms' most frightening enemy is an educated, coordinated, active public.  This trend against allowing attorneys to assist pro se litigants seems to be picking up support from the aristocrats in other jurisdictions as well, and is certainly understandable from their position.  On the holodeck, the revenue generating litigant is to be kept in the dark at all costs.   Remember that before the Civil War, the revenue generating African slaves were not permitted to learn to read and write.  Knowledge is power and books like this are dangerous to the elite.  

And finally, we must not overlook that a true victim of the holodeck can also be a judge who did not want to play on the holodeck.  
I know several who have gone through or are going through terrible persecution because they either unwittingly or knowingly have upset the unwritten, unspoken rules of the holodeck.  I will discuss this in a later chapter called "Black Judge Down" and will also help you to see through the deceptions being spun by the Bar holograms or by the biased, bought-off media hologram spins.  

At one time Shakespeare's call to "kill the lawyers" meant that if evil eliminates those knowledgeable of the system, then evil could deceive and prey on the people. Now we are learning that many of the lawyers have sold out and have become part of the deceptive holodeck,
which often also include the judge, the state bar (always), and the legislature (almost always).  

As the attorney holograms rake in their money
off of the unsuspecting, duped public victims who were sucked or suckered into the Litigation Vortex, these attorney holograms then spin off huge amounts of this money to the political campaigns of the judge and legislator holograms.  These alleged "public servant" holograms then campaign using this ill gotten gain, in their political holodeck where the uneducated public is further deceived through the media hologram spin, into thinking that the republican and democratic political parties are different, when in fact these parties are merely different labels for the same global-elitist product.  The media also further deceives the public into thinking that clean elections (including the counting of votes) are sacred and would not be disturbed - "no, not in America" the pubic cynically says!   This deception is believed because the public has not learned from history, which "facts" are controlled by their government-funded schools, and so they have not heard that long ago Joseph Stalin said that "those who vote decide nothing, those who count the vote decide everything."

Then as the public repeats history out of its own ignorance, continually putting these elitist holograms into office, the holograms continue their deception on the holodeck, as they repeatedly rape the public through exorbitant taxes, fines, dues, under the table and backstage deals, etc., and violently suck off the public's breast until the people are dry.  This is accomplished without the public's awareness as they don't understand or see a holodeck and thus, can't see that they are simply feeding these holograms, who fund and perpetuate the holodeck to which they are enslaved.  

This brings us to Rule Five in the Holodeck, a.k.a., "The Golden Rule."  You may think you know this rule and may feel confused as to how the Golden Rule could possibly apply.  Or perhaps by now, you have figured out that on the Holodeck, nothing is as it appears.  If you are catching on, then you know that the
Power-Elites' favorite mantra is:  Whoever owns the gold, makes the rules.  This includes the real rules of the Holodeck Courts.

So now that we understand that there is a litigation vortex, and that we must be able to identify our real enemy, and know the real rules, some of which are outlined here, we must also be cautious the next time we see the defenders in the "Triangle and Two Defense" disciplining a judge, an attorney, or a pro se litigant for an "alleged" wrong.  Let us not quickly applaud in the holodeck for nothing is as it appears (how to determine when discipline is real is covered in more detail in the chapter called "Black Judge Down").

And thus the Holodeck goes, only revealed to the most discerning of eyes. Yes, on the Holodeck
Court of Injustice, nothing is as it appears.

When the righteous thrive, the people rejoice; when the wicked rule, the people groan. Prov. 29:2



A Letter to American Media


by Linda L. Kennedy, Attorney at Law


It is unusual that any attorney, let alone a conservative attorney, would dare to speak out against the judicial system and its supporting agencies for several reasons, only some being obvious. But for me to sit in front of some of the news shows night after night, hearing the debate over the woes of the Military Courts and how we are known for our Civil and Criminal Due Process Rights, and at the same time picturing in my mind the many people who have been hoodwinked and even ruined by this so called "just" system, is not tolerable to me. - Linda L. Kennedy, Attorney at Law


Dear Media:


I realize that some of you may not be aware of the deception that the "due process / constitutional attorneys" are spewing out on our airways, but let me set that record straight for you on military courts -- and I hope you have the guts and integrity to report it. I have heard of no one who is saying on the air what I have to say today. Many unfortunate citizens know and agree with what I will be describing to you. That is why I am writing, because it must be said and you must hear it from an otherwise, conservative attorney. Additionally, I had just recently met with a former Attorney General of the United States. Although he indicated that the judicial system needs fixing, for him it was all about one political party being right while the other one was wrong. That is absolutely not the problem.


Because this point of view I am presenting will be surprising coming from a "conservative" (trained at Pat Robertson's Regent University School of Law) attorney, I hope you will see how ridiculous the Military Court v. Civil/Criminal Court's debate actually is and the legal fiction the distinction between the two creates. The public should not be fooled by these "scholars" who try to paint a difference between the two systems which are in all practicality, the same.


Additionally, I have put myself in grave jeopardy because I dare speak out against the "gods" of some of the courts, i.e., some of the judges, and their government agencies, for obvious reasons. It has been and still is professional suicide to say what I have to say and I have certainly "walked the plank" more than just a few times for being so outspoken in a way that is not "big-business friendly." What I have to say must be said however, for the public's best interest.


Most of what I am hearing on the air which is of concern to some of the constitutional attorneys being interviewed, is that the Military Courts may be unfair because they do not allow for adequate discovery (turning over of evidence to the opposition so that the defense can prepare a case), they have quick trials and secretive hearings, they will incorporate biased judges, they have no juries, and possibly no appeals. The bottom-line is simply: All of this debate has to do with protecting civil rights. I want to show you why this debate is moot in practicality, and by not having the following view as a part of any discussion, is misrepresenting the real problem to the public. In comparing these courts, we need to actually look at what civil rights the people are actually receiving and then compare the courts. Let's not look at the situation in a test tube any longer. Here is what I am telling you is happening, not only as a scholar, but as a practicing attorney who gets to see the inside of a courtroom all day-every day.


My claim which I can support with volumes of hard evidence including testimony, transcripts, etc., is that some of our courts are already unconstitutionally acting as military courts against the people today. Many individual plaintiffs that go into our courts (depending on which courts) get to learn this shocking lesson all by themselves, and then after the dusts settles, they get to try to pick up the pieces of their lives once they have truly experienced the tyranny of our own corrupted system which ignores our Constitutional Rights daily. Because the reality is kept so secret from the public at large, and because many news agencies will not inform the public of the horrendous condition of these courts, the public is totally unaware of the injustices happening daily; only to find out if they are unfortunate enough to get caught up in the "vortex" of the judicial system -- with only fleeting hope of ever getting free of it with their shirts still on their backs!


Our civil rights are not protected now, even though the Constitution guarantees them, since some of the courts ignore the Constitution regularly when it actually secretly, quietly, and quickly dismisses our cases, without so much as a hearing, without so much as a right to an appeal (rubber stamped "denied" without so much as an opinion as to why we lost, which then goes into an "unpublished opinion" file at the discretion of the court so that nobody else (not even attorneys) know that the case existed, and it does not affect precedents). These courts openly and willingly allow one side (usually the defense in civil cases, and the prosecutors in criminal cases) to commit repeated perjury and allow it to thwart discovery requests (the lawful and mandatory turning over of documents which allows the opposition to know what the issues are). If these examples do not fit into the concerns of the Constitutional "scholars" over the Military Courts what does?


I ask you, why are so many special interest corporations funding judicial and governmental officials to go on trips and to hear "pro-corporation" seminars? Doesn't this sound a little bit like a biased court would result from such junkets? This is happening regularly within our state and federal systems without hardly a word from the media. Why else would the Congress be so concerned over appointments and the personal stands each judge has on issues? It is because Congress knows that an unbiased and impartial judiciary is nonexistent when it comes to special interest groups and any poor plaintiff and/or that attorney that tries to challenge it will pay dearly for daring to do so.


Would you be surprised to hear from two people who actually had their judges fall asleep during the trial, only to take the decision away from the jury once awakened, and then dismiss it without the benefit of due process? Of course, big business won again. The special trips and seminars for judges pay off. One case was dismissed after the judge used 19 facts that were not even admitted into evidence (that is like not allowing for discovery as military courts are professing to do). This is forbidden by law. Appeal was denied, and the opinion was unpublished like about 90% of the opinions in the 4th circuit so that nobody is the wiser. What about a judge that dismisses a defamation claim against an insurance company saying that the plaintiff should not have filed a suit because money is more important than reputation anyway and that she should read some books because everyone knows that. Doesn't it make you wonder which big-business supported that decision? What about a judge who refuses to acknowledge "blacklisting" as a law, even though Congress/General Assembly made such a law to be enforced by the courts? Would you be surprised that in both of these cases described above, the plaintiff got sanctioned (assessed fines and fees against them) for daring to bring these cases into court? I ask you then, in reality how is our present court system any different from the Military Courts to which so many are taking offense?


Besides me, I know of only one other attorney who is trying to bring these abuses to light. She stepped down from a government position because of all of the corruption for which she did not want a part. She filed suit and clearly showed the corruption of a particular city's police, attorneys, and judges. Not only was she sanctioned for daring to bring such a case forward, but those she exposed placed a gag order on her, every single pleading ever filed is sealed so that nobody can find out about this corruption, and she is regularly arrested by that city's police as punishment. To top it off, although the case was never heard on the merits, she was sanctioned about $18,000 and she has approximately another $200,000 waiting for her in our wonderful 4th Circuit Court. That is what happens to those few of us who dare to expose what is really going on in this corrupt system. Sounds like something we would describe might happen under the reign of the Taliban doesn't it? Certainly this is worse than any military court which will at least have some scrutiny placed on it.


How would you feel if you were judged by a judge who liked to use the word "nigger" and derogatorily acts in a stereotypically "poor black from the 1800's manner" after he finds an African American guilty? How about a judge who proudly claims that he does not find for employees in employment law cases (how's that for unbiased judges).


Why then is the issue Military Courts v. Civil/Criminal Courts when, practically, there is no difference? If you look at the statistics, and open your forum to citizens who have been a part of actual court proceedings in certain jurisdictions including federal jurisdictions, you will clearly find that some courts are treating their supposedly open courts as if they were Military Courts -- and getting away with it daily. I will show you just one Federal Circuit who routinely violates our Constitutional Rights daily with the blessing of the Court of Appeals, but only one for brevity sake. Please note that this is not my only example.


Take the Federal 4th Circuit located in Virginia. There exists a Title VII statute that allows for a plaintiff in a "protected class" to file suit against employers who treat them wrongly because of their race, color, sex, national origin, or religion. Just in the year 2000 which is the last full year of statistics, the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals heard 11 cases on appeal from district courts (not counting unpublished opinions and all the other district court cases which were quietly and secretly dismissed). Of these cases all 11 were decided in favor of the defendant (big-business) at the district court level. One of these was even heard by a jury (Conner v. Schrader-Bridgeport International, Inc., 227 F.3d 179 (4th Cir. 2000)) and the jury found for the plaintiff. Let me explain. Getting to a jury in the 4th Circuit is almost unheard of in employment law cases although it is granted as a right under Title VII. In spite of the jury finding in favor of the plaintiff, the district court judge then proceeded to take the case from the jury and find for the defendant anyway (How's that for due process?) Furthermore, of these 11 cases, all had been decided for the defense on summary judgment (judge refuses to provide for a trial for the plaintiff), or judgment as a matter of law (judge decides that even though the jury may have been present, they do not get to decide the case at all).


Because I have taken part in cases like these and regularly have to tell my client "don't even bother going to this court for justice," I will absolutely guarantee you that much of the evidence was obfuscated by the defense and the judge was absolutely no assistant of justice in making the defense turn over the evidence it was hiding. In fact, if the plaintiff gets his/her hands on a document of the employers which could prove the truth; one that the defense is falsely claiming they don't have, the judge then finds that it is "stolen," and makes the plaintiff return the document to the defense. The defense, then can continually claim that the document does not exist even though the court knows that is not true and that perjury has been committed.


Additionally, these judges are repeatedly "wined and dined" by big-business with big corporate interests (Please see "www.Tripsforjudges.com" for my information here). According to Tripsforjudges.com, judges have been sent on vacations even as far as Israel by big-business. Also the Foundation for Research on Economics and the Environment (FREE) and the Liberty Fund pays for these vacations for judges which are, coincidentally, very close to their headquarters for "seminars." One judge even received a trip for he AND HIS SON, by businessman Mr. Hank Jones. How's that for unbiased Judges?


FREE is a nonprofit organization that advocates reliance on the free market and private property rights, instead of environmental laws to protect the environment. Obviously, any tenant, employee, environmentalist, and anyone else challenging the acts of one of these interests is in for a surprising, and rude, awakening. Judges who attend their lectures are indoctrinated into the emphasis of property rights and market processes according to big-business interests. FREE gets its funding directly from corporations, foundations of large companies, and from prominent conservative foundations. FREE receives 1/3 of its budget directly from corporations such as Shell Oil Company Foundation, Burlington Resources Foundation, General Electric Fund, Temple-Inland Foundation, and Kock Oil (Lambe Foundation). Foundations which support FREE are Sarah Scaife, Carthage Foundations, and the John M. Olin Foundation. These foundations are among the largest supporters of nonprofits that challenge environmental regulations in federal court. How's that for unbiased Judges and the possibility of a citizen of the United States receiving a full and fair hearing under the law?


Liberty Fund was founded by businessman Pierre F. Goodrich. The Liberty fund makes grants directly to conservative and libertarian organizations such as the Cato Institute, the Center for the Study of Federalism, and the Political Economy Research Center. The Liberty Fund not only hosts its own seminars for judges, they also fund those of philosophically aligned groups. The Liberty Fund has over $202 million in assets and in 1997 alone spent $1.6 million (1/5 of their total budget) sponsoring meetings and seminars for federal judges and other government leaders.


If there is any doubt about the biased, unfair, and unconstitutional nature of the judicial make-up and decisions that would rival any military court in the land, then consider that all but one of the judges currently sitting on the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals bench has previously worked with a firm whose primary practice area was civil defense (big-business).


It is unusual that any attorney, let alone a conservative attorney, would dare to speak out against the judicial system and its supporting agencies for several reasons, only some being obvious. But for me to sit in front of some of the news shows night after night, hearing the debate over the woes of the Military Courts and how we are known for our Civil and Criminal Due Process Rights, and at the same time picturing in my mind the many people who have been hoodwinked and even ruined by this so called "just" system, is not tolerable to me. The Constitution is to be honored in that it does provide the citizens of this country with due process and other very valuable rights necessary to keep a society truly free. Unfortunately, as Thomas Jefferson and many others have warned, the system is only as good as those who oversee it. Unfortunately, those who presently oversee it are "Big-Business" and their advocates. Why else would we be willing to bail out the insurance industry, some of whom regularly deny otherwise valid claims, hire fact-witnesses to lie, change doctor reports, etc., at the expense of the people and with total "selective-ignorance" by the Courts and the State Bars who oversee attorneys who do this? In fact, these attorneys who do this are sometimes our next Bar president or Judge. Only those who fight this system are harassed.


Was the Judge who said money is more important than reputation really telling the truth? Should I just read some books so that I too will believe that is the "American Way?" It sure sounds like it, as it is the present state of affairs which is being selectively ignored by those who should be speaking for the people. The Constitution still exists for the protection of the people through due process and other valuable rights. If we are going to ignore it daily, however, then at least let us not pretend that there is a difference between Military and Civil/Criminal Courts.


As you can see, the Military or Civil Court debate is moot because the Military system is already in place and has been in place for years, applied against our own shocked, but now "court-hardened" citizens. Many of them are speaking out in frustration, because no media dares to expose this oppression which is likened to the sad days of slavery in America. Attorneys also know what I am talking about, but until they value the people more than their own pocket books and their distinguished professional careers, then our profession will continue to claim that the "Emperor has clothes" and that there is a difference between the unconstitutional Military Courts and the Civil/Criminal Courts by which the people are continually being terrorized. As President Bush has said, terrorists need to be "rooted out." In this case, either the media is with the people or with those who practice judicial terrorism at the expense of our citizens. Come on American Media -- start telling the whole story; "Let's Roll."
