12-04-15 Corruption in the California courts - business as usual

While In Jail, Whistleblower Kramer Exposing Mold And Chamber Of Commerce Cover-up Had Records Changed By Court

Kelman v. Kramer ~ On March 26th the Honorable Thomas Nugent removed Sharon Kramer’s false Criminal Contempt Record given her on March 12th, while unlawfully incarcerated, and….

Posted on April 2, 2012 
then replaced it with a false Civil Contempt Record. The false criminal record was given to Mrs. Kramer on March 12th while unlawfully incarcerated at the Los Colinas Women’s Detention Center in Santee, California. 
Sharon Noonan Kramer
On March 26th, the Court replaced the false Criminal Contempt record with a false Civil Contempt of Court record at the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department. By doing so, the Court is concealing that on March 9th, the Court unlawfully ordered Mrs. Kramer to be incarcerated for refusing to commit perjury and sign the Fraudulent Retraction, crafted by Mr. Kelman’s attorney, Mr. Scheuer. 
Signing this fraudulent document was not the requirement of the Contempt of Court Order of January 19th in order to avoid incarceration. Mrs Kramer’s signature on the false document would have absolved seven years of judicial, clerk, attorney and plaintiff misconduct aiding to defraud the public of billions of dollars over the mold issue. 
Mrs. Kramer chose unlawful incarceration over being coerced into colluding with the courts to defraud the public. As a result of speaking the truth in America, she was incarcerated, now has an undeserved jail record and a false Contempt of Court record. The Court is concealing that what they have done over the cases of Kelman & GlobalTox v. Kramer and Kelman v. Kramer has aided the science fraud of Mr. Kelman to continue to be used in US courts to deny and delay financial responsibility for stakeholders – primarily the insurance industry -  for causations of environmental illnesses.
Mr. Kelman’s prolific testimony throughout the US courts as an expert, toxic tort defense witness is that he has proven individuals ”Could not be”  harmed by an environmental toxin. His testimony is based solely on a toxicology model.  That is not science now, and it never was. 
The Courts overseeing the seven year saga of Kelman v. Kramer know this. They know they are aiding the false science to continue to the detriment of the United States public and to the benefit of the affiliates of the US Chamber of Commerce.

Just when Fatima Bouchar thought it couldn't get any worse, the Americans forced her to lie on a stretcher and began wrapping tape around her feet. They moved upwards, she says, along her legs, winding the tape around and around, binding her to the stretcher. They taped her stomach, her arms and then her chest. She was bound tight, unable to move.

12-04-14 and the Secret Service is getting laid

My experience with the Secret Service is limited:
  • One agent explained to me that I was designated by FBI a "bad guy"... According to him, it was not that I was truly a "bad guy", not to worry, it was just a designation, which meant that FBI had to undermine my efforts to gain Equal Protection and Rule of Law in Los Angeles County, California.
  • Another Secret Service agent, when I filed a complaint regarding large-scale fraud in the computer systems of Countrywide/Bank of America (large computer systems, particularly related to the banking, are part of the primary charge of the Secret Service), insisted on interviewing me regarding the presumed psychiatric condition the led me to file to such deranged claims...
Maybe they were busy in some group sex, never had time for my complaints...

12-04-14 US Wars on Drugs...

A fog of drugs and war

In a drunk driving and auto theft case last year, the Air Force pilot Patrick Burke was found not guilty "by reason of lack of mental responsibility" -- a result of the prescription drugs he'd taken. 
April 7, 2012
SEATTLE — U.S. Air Force pilot Patrick Burke's day started in the cockpit of a B-1 bomber near the Persian Gulf and proceeded across nine time zones as he ferried the aircraft home to South Dakota.

Every four hours during the 19-hour flight, Burke swallowed a tablet of Dexedrine, the prescribed amphetamine known as "go pills." After landing, he went out for dinner and drinks with a fellow crewman. They were driving back to Ellsworth Air Force Base when Burke began striking his friend in the head.

Fatigue dogged U.S. pilots 
Crews urged to use amphetamines days before Canadian troops killed

by Glen McGregor, Vancouver Sun, 3 June 2002

OTTAWA -- Pilots from the U.S. fighter squadron that mistakenly bombed Canadian troops in Afghanistan had told their commanders shortly before the fatal accident that they were exhausted and needed more rest between missions.
The informal meeting between pilots of the 183rd Fighter Wing and their commanding officers was convened after the unit misidentified a bombing target during a previous mission over Iraq. The 183rd, an Air National Guard unit currently stationed in Kuwait, was flying patrol missions in the no-fly zone in Southern Iraq as well as sorties over Afghanistan.
In the meeting, held in the week before Canadian soldiers were shelled by American bombs in Afghanistan, at least one F-16 pilot complained that requirements for crew rest were not being observed and that many of the pilots were overtired. The pilot was told, however, that further questions about crew rest would not be looked on favourably by the wing command.
Instead, pilots were advised to speak to a flight surgeon about so-called "go/no pills" -- amphetamines used to help stay awake on long missions, and sedatives to help sleep.
Then, on April 17, a fighter from the 183rd flying a patrol mission accidentally bombed Canadian troops conducting a live-fire exercise south of Kandahar. Four soldiers from the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry were killed and eight injured.
Pilots are supposed to get 12 hours of rest between missions, but that can be changed when the unit is in a state of alert. The 183rd has been flying missions in the no-fly zone since March.
Although U.S. air force rules allow flight surgeons to prescribe dextro-amphetamine (dexe-drine), the drug is supposed to be used for long transoceanic transport flights, not combat missions.
"If they can't work around the scheduling, and people have to work extended hours, then dextro-amphetamine is approved," said Betty-Anne Mauger, a public affairs officer with the U.S. air force surgeon general.

The U.S. Military Needs Its Speed

Elliot Borin Email 02.10.03

Recalling the American airborne invasion of Normandy during World War II in his 1962 book Night Drop, Army colonel and combat historian S.L.A. Marshall wrote: "The United States Army is indifferent toward common-sense rules by which the energy of men may be conserved in combat."
Pilots from the Air Force 183rd Fighter Wing felt the reverberations of Marshall's assessment -- which is cited on page 3 of the Navy's official guide for managing fatigue -- last April. According to reports published in Canada, they misidentified a target during a bombing run over Iraq. Meeting with their commanders, they complained they were exhausted, that the "common-sense" rule of 12 hours of rest between missions was being ignored.
In return they got two pieces of advice: Stop whining and visit the flight surgeon for some "go/no-go" pills.
About a week later, two members of the 183rd, Majs. Harry Schmidt and William Umbach, launched a laser-guided bomb on a Canadian training force, killing four and injuring eight.
At a recently concluded Article 32 hearing to determine if the pilots should be court-martialed for manslaughter, assault and dereliction of duty, Schmidt and Umbach's attorneys claimed it was the Air Force's dextro-amphetamine (trade name, Dexedrine) tablets, aka speed, that killed the Canadians, not Schmidt and Umbach.
