Debby Reagan’s Foreclosure Saga Against US Bank and BoA Continues

This is the continuation of her foreclosure story.

“The Springvale District Court saga:
In the Springvale District court, I gave proof that the bank’s lawyers showed TWO sets of originals of my note and mortgage deed. But, Judge Michael P. Cantara said it was just a different copying method. Now, how can an “original” deed be stamped that it’s an accurate and true copy of the original, and NOT be a copy? Then, magically, when at the hearing, they give what they say is the original deed WITHOUT that stamp and say that this is what they showed me when I gave the judge an exact copy of what they showed me and he says…it’s just a different copying method? Lie #1 and judge biased towards the bank.”

“I pointed out that the copy of the note filed at the commencement of litigation wasn’t endorsed and the one showed to me and entered into evidence at the hearing 2 years later was. And even though the Maine Supreme court, the Prospectus and Security Agreement and Maine’s foreclosure statute 14-6321 says that ALL endorsements MUST be included at the commencement of litigation, Judge Cantara ignored this and scheduled the case for trial even though the bank didn’t have standing. Judge Cantara never questioned how or when the endorsement appeared on the note two years after the un-endorsed copy of that note was filed into the court. Judge biased towards the bank #2.”

Debby is dealing with a former corrupt York County District Attorney. Former Governor John Baldacci elevated “one of his kind” to the bench. D.A. Cantara covered up bank fraud back in the early 1990’s. A complaint was brought to him against Attorney Michelle Robert and her cohort Judge Robert E. Crowley regarding their concerted efforts with bankers/city officials to steal property. He refused to take action because Atty. Robert was “his friend and colleague.” Atty. Robert ended up in the Attorney General’s Office when Angus King became governor. (He had put a freeze on hiring..hmmmm!) Cantara also covered for a corrupt sheriff department! Debby’s is yet another case of “Maine justice.” “Musical Chairs” and “Revolving Doors” yield the same result. As the swill turns!

Maine Judge Nancy Mills Recuses Herself From a Home Foreclosure Case

JUDGE NANCY MILLS RECUSES HERSELF FROM A HOME FORECLOSURE CASE
July 11, 2014
By Editor:

On July 9, 2014 at 08:30 in courtroom #9 our reporter appeared under a Power of Attorney (P.O.A.) for the Defendant homeowner.

Upon J. Mills entering the courtroom our reporter invoked Rule 76H; which allows a party in interest to record the hearing for their own use. No comment was made from the bench and the hearing was recorded pursuant to the stated Rule. J. Mills proceeded to establish the record by identifying the docket number, the Bank Plaintiff, Defendant homeowner, and the ex-husband of the Defendant.

J. Mills then inquired as to whether our reporter was licensed to practice law in Maine, he wasn’t. She went on to cite two cases in Maine where P.O.A.’s were specifically barred from representing another person unless the P.O.A. in question was also a licensed lawyer.

Our reporter then asked permission from the Court to make enquiry of the Court. Permission was granted and this exchange ensued:

Reporter: Are you related to Janet Mills?

Mills: Yes I am.

R: In what way?

M: She’s my sister-in-law.

Our reporter then stated he had a Motion to Recuse J. Mills due to Attorney General Janet Mills unusual interview in the Portland Press Herald regarding the Defendant homeowner’s divorce and child custody case, which forced the foreclosure case. J. Mills stated she took Judicial Notice of the Motion to Recuse, and did in fact recuse herself at that point.

In the discussion about resetting the hearing date our reporter asked the Court for four weeks so the Defendant would have time to vet the next judge for conflicts. J. Mills said that the clerk’s office is good about notifications and she would let them handle it. Our reporter then made a Motion on the record for a period of four weeks and J. Mills stated he wasn’t allowed to make any motions. To which he replied that he was only trying “to prevent Reversible Error by the Court.”

Finally Fair Reporting! Phil Merletti And Wayne Leach Explain Their Concerns

Credit given to The Sun Journal and Staff Writer, Mark Laflamme, for reporting “the other side of the story”, HERE.

Listen to Phil and Wayne explain their concerns:

Why they feel sorry for LePage.

A warning about martial law.

Why it’s dangerous to be called a sovereign 

They don’t have the consent of the people

If it is repugnant to the constitution..

Where the authority comes from

Who calls it repugnant?

How to reverse repugnant laws.

Was LePage threatened?

The Legislative Council is the problem.

The BDN did report “LePage’s office put out a statement defending the Constitutional Coalition from any association with terrorism. Merletti also told the BDN that the Constitutional Coalition had given up speaking with LePage because he had become too dependent on the views of his lawyers.”

Has Phil “hit the nail on the head”?

Commentary courtesy of Leon Bard:

Time for the People to Become Educated

“I’m always amused by the comments posted in response to news stories. Some people are informed, some are uninformed and some are just plain misinformed. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I prefer to be informed. Becoming a victim of “the system” is probably one of the most effective ways to getting an education in reality. I have gotten an eye opening education through my own life experiences. Things are not what they seem. If you are uninformed or misinformed, you are part of the problem. If you are informed, then you need to stand up and speak up. Wayne and Phil are speaking up for the benefit of all, well maybe not for all. Those that are running the system obviously don’t like being exposed. Too bad! Games over! Governor LePage may not be the perfect governor, but at least he follows through with his word. (From personal experience) With very few exceptions, that’s more than I can say for all other politicians. Last time I checked, there were no perfect candidates running for governor. As far as politicians that have committed treason……………probably not enough characters left in this chat box to list them all. Going to court is like visiting your local casino, follow the money. Do not go into court expecting justice. Contrary to most of the headlines this past week, members of the Constitutional Coalition are not domestic terrorists, if you don’t understand or disagree with something that they said, contact them to discuss it. Remember: if your head is in the sand, then a very vulnerable part of your body is highly visible. Keep up the good work Wayne & Phil. Kudos to Mark LaFlamme for writing a fair story!”

Are the comments from uninformed/uneducated people encouraging elected officials to maintain their “controlled” thinking?

Phil and Wayne’s concerns beg many questions.

Does this prove that the people are on the right track and close to exposing what those in authority don’t want exposed?

Does this have the appearance of bullying, hate crimes…and if there are other participants, may involve another crime?

What evidence does Mr. Alan Caron have that would justify calling these so-called sovereign citizens “crazies?” Is Mr. Caron participating in “hate crimes” in this case? What constitutes “crazies”? And he’s a “consultant”?

When the spotlight is on “official corruption”, evidence proves that anything will be done, or allowed to be done, to whomever they want to silence. Officials will play along with anyone in order to achieve their intended goal, despite consequences to the Maine’s taxpayers. Afterall, you’ll never know about it….except through alternative media!

Those who sought accountability of injustices, violations of the law from those in authority behind the “veil”, and when rebuffed spoke out,  have been subjected to demonization in the mainstream media, physically harmed (view the last case on this video) or drugged. In furtherance of the silence of people who are not part of the “good ole boy” network and who run for office will lose through “ballot tampering.” Other tactics used are suppression of freedom of speech and theft of property.

Where Did The Original Constitutional State Go?

Lise from Maine’s book has been published!  Congratulations Lise!

 

Where Did The Original Constitutional State Go?

This is a great reference, research, informative and educational tool for everyone!

Have you ever been a plaintiff/defendant in court?

Have you ever witnessed the injustices metered out by judges?

Have you ever wondered what’s going on in our judicial system?

“We all grew up believing the judicial system in the United States was fair and just. This was the place to go to obtain justice for abuses or injuries perpetrated against us. We believed that we lived with constitutional courts where justice would be metered out. We believed that judges were official judicial officers who took an oath to the constitution and would uphold our rights in their court of law. Throughout the decades of judicial abuse and misconduct, irreparable harmed perpetrated against the good, honest, decent people of Maine and across this country, you are in for a great awakening. The author of this book has devoted years researching Maine’s judicial system and discovered that we don’t have any constitutional courts operating in Maine.

The research and evidence detailed in this book will help you understand today’s make up of the court versus our original common law courts. You will learn the elements that craft our “fake” courts and the deceptive words/terms/phrases used against us. You will learn, in detail, the reasons for all this corruption in the existing “fake” court system today, and why “powers that be” want it that way. Lise’s research is most informative and very educational for those interested in learning the “pieces” of the puzzle regarding Maine’s judicial system. Whether you are currently involved in a court case, or could possibly be in the future, this is a fabulous reference book to have at your fingertips. My thanks to Lise for her dedication and time spent on years of such important research.”

Subject: FW: Another Police Chief Arrested for Rape of Twin 5 year old girls Questions that Journalists Must Ask
Importance: High

Dear Noel and Maine Journalists;

It is enormously frustrating to read all the media reports of yet another former Maine Police Chief in his 70s arrested for the rape of very small children and to have the entire Maine press corps not even ask the most fundamental questions. Please, please, please.

1. Twin 5 year old girls were raped by a 72 year old former Maine Police Chief. This is CHILD TRAFFICKING. Who gave Smith access? How much did Retired Police Chief Smith pay to rape these children? How many times have this children been shared around Maine for sex abuse and by whom?

2. I guarantee you that this is not the first time these five year old twin girls have been abused. Nor is it the first time Chief Smith has been raping little children.

3. Why, just the Police Chief Demers’ arrest last month, why, why, why did Maine Police fail to follow STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURES (SOPs) that cops across the country follow in any case where there is even concerning behavior by a cop around children. Concerning behavior by a police officer around children IS ENOUGH to pull a search warrant for his/her electronics to obtain the massive child porn that almost always exists.

4. The reason it is critical to get the electronics immediately is that child porn is crime scenes. This is electronic evidence of who is raping the children. No one, and I mean no one, rapes children anymore without producing child porn. There is no way on God’s green earth that these two 70 year old former Maine Police Chiefs did not have huge collections of child porn.

5. I have told everyone who will listen, my daughter’s father was found by our investigators on a known child porn trading site and Maine Computer Crimes Director Lt. Glenn Lang refused to investigate. The arrest of Chief Smith and Chief Demers is directly related to my daughter’s case because it is yet again more evidence of the child trafficking being run and protected in Maine by police—starting with Lt. Glenn Lang Maine Computer Crimes Director.

6. Will not one journalist in Maine even call Lt. Glenn Lang and ask him what he is doing? Why no search warrants were pulled for either retired Police Chiefs?

I’ve attached both a national level FOIA that was filed by Cause of Action in Washington DC regarding concerns about Glenn Lang. I’m attaching chapters from my book Child Porn Nation. Please scroll down to the section on arrests for police officers of child porn, Chapter Two starts on pg. 42. The section on local cops starts on pg. 62.

You will note that even in places like LaPorte Indiana, search warrants are pulled, as SOPs, for even reports of concerning behavior around children. Why not Maine?

David Oldham, a 42 year old Sheriff’s Deputy in LaPorte County Indiana, was arrested on eight counts of child porn possession, child molestation and tampering with evidence. LaPorte County Sheriff Mike Mollenhauer contacted Indiana State Police after Deputy Oldham’s wife contact the Sheriff expressing concern about Oldham’s relationship with a 12-year-old neighborhood boy. The boy was spending nights with Oldham, sleeping in the same bed, after riding in the patrol car when Oldham worked the midnight shift. Despite Oldham’s attempts to destroy his hard drive investigators were able to recover some 70 child sex abuse images and 7 videos from Oldham’s home computer.[i]

Lori Handrahan, Ph.D.

Evidence proves that Maine’s Attorney General’s Office has refused to investigate crimes, matters of public trust and public interest. Just a couple of examples:

Notice and Demand to A.G. Janet Mills,which was brushed under the rug. Click here.

A criminal complaint was filed with A.G. William Schneider on January 10, 2011 regarding the following, brushed under the rug:

FRAUD – A scheme was devised by means of false and fraudulent pretenses, in violation of 18 U.S.C. §§ 1341, 1343 and 36 M.R.S.A., 5 M.R.S.A. § 4684, to unlawfully obtain ownership of real estate. The enterprise involved is an “enterprise” as defined by 18 U.S.C. § 1961(4).

EXTORTION – The “enterprise”, conspiring in concert with others, aided and abetted theft and extortion through the commission of state and federal offenses and gained financially by receiving the proceeds and benefits of this extortion in violation of 17-A M.R.S.A. §§ 353, 355 and 18 U.S.C. § 880. This entire “scheme” is a series of RICO predicate acts as 18 U.S.C. § 1951(a) expressly makes conspiracy a predicate act and a crime. The furtherance of these crimes was in violation of 17-A M.R.S.A. §§ 353, 354, 355 and 18 U.S.C. § 1349, 241, 242.

MAIL & WIRE FRAUD – The internet and U.S. Postal service were used by the enterprise/associate” to further extort money in the amount of $35,000 in violation of 18 U.S.C. §§ 1341, 1343. These were also multiple predicate acts under RICO statutes.

BANK & SECURITIES FRAUD – The “enterprise”/agent involved unlawfully used property, other than his own, as collateral by means of false or fraudulent pretenses and did obtain a mortgage from a bank in the amount of $105,000.00 in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1344 and § 1348. The Security Instrument involved, was obtained through unlawful activity and constitutes “racketeering activity” as defined by 18 U.S.C. §1961 and money laundering as defined by 18 U.S.C. § 1956 and § 1957.

It appears that the Attorney General has final say in whether or not to investigate crimes. When A.G. Schneider brushed this RICO case under the rug, John Morris, Comm. Dept. of Public Safety was contacted. Does he fear the Attorney General? He has aided and abetted in the A.G.’s cover up of these crimes – RICO violations. Response from Mr. Morris, HERE.

Pursuant to 25 MRS, Chap. 351: Department of Public Safety §2908. Police officers; powers and duties; cooperation, the Commissioner of Public Safety may expand the duties and powers of police officers beyond the duties and powers enumerated in this section to investigate, prosecute, serve process on and arrest violators of any law of this State.

Why aren’t state legislators stepping up to the plate?

FTM, May 12, 2014, reports “CATCHING A POLITICIAN IN A LIE WITH THEIR OWN EMAIL, PRICELESS! Recently Rep. Lisa Villa, (D) REPEATEDLY went on the record every where she could, to take credit for organizing a public forum to discuss problems with the Guardians Ad Litem system, Maine Family Court, and Judge Jeffrey Moskowitz in particular. Only one problem, it was COMPLETELY set in motion by Lori Handrahan, from her D.C. location.

That didn’t stop Villa from jumping into a possible good political situation and take credit for it. But, it turns out she and others actually sent emails before the meeting acknowledging Lori was the organizer.

What’s worse, a politician that lies, or a stupid politician that lies and leaves an email trail that proves she LIED? You can see the emails below.

That wasn’t enough of a bonehead move by Villa, she had to double down and go all in, and take the video camera cards from the South Portland Cable TV manager, a public document protected under the FOAA law. FTM immediately sought court protection for the camera cards and served the city the notice. Why would Villa seize the camera cards? Could it be to protect a fellow Dem, Judge Moskowitz, whose conduct in court was criticized repeatedly by the victims of that conduct? You can see the filing below.

On top of that violation of the FOAA law, Villa somehow mistakenly believes her position “as representing all the people in Maine” (her exact words) gives her authority greater than any elected person in this country to say the following, “She is not afraid of releasing the footage to any legitimate news outlet…” (Quoted from the Washington Times article) When did this pipsqueak of a State Representative, get to decide which news outlets were ‘legitimate and which ones were not legitimate’. FTM likely has a larger readership every week than the margin of votes that put Villa in office. Rep. Villa perhaps when you’re NOT busy taking credit for organizing a meeting that you didn’t, stealing public documents from South Portland, and picking ‘legitimate’ news outlets, you could find the time to read the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, try to concentrate your brain power on the part that discusses FREEDOM OF THE PRESS. Perhaps you could point out the section where pipsqueak members of the Maine Legislature get to decide who and what are legitimate news outlets?

What does Villa do next? She thinks it’s a big joke with a LOL on her email you can see below.”

Affidavit – A.G. Janet Mills, HERE.

Legal Notice to A.G. Janet Mills, HERE.

Notification – Judiciary Committee, HERE.

May 9, 2014

Communities Digital News reports “Maine Legislators Spar Over Judicial Appointee, Corruption in Family Courts.” Maine legislators have called for a review of the State’s family courts following the complaints of parents dismayed by the news of the recent promotion of family court Judge Jeffrey Moskowitz to the position of Deputy Chief Judge of the Maine Districts Courts. Legislators say the appointment comes as a shock to many members of the public, who consider Judge Moskowitz “the least likely candidate” for appointment to this very important, pivotal office within the Judicial Branch operations.

“Judge Moskowitz is one of 4 family court judges about whom we consistently hear significant complaints from users of his court, victims of his actions,” said Senator David E. Dutremble (D-Biddeford) last Friday in an an email that was addressed to several dozen of his legislative colleagues, as well as many other members of State and Federal law enforcement units. Dutremble, a divorced father of five children whose father was a local sheriff, currently sits on the State Legislature’s Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee.

“Who was party to making this decision? Why was he chosen over other candidates? What was the objective basis for choosing him in terms of knowledge, skill and experience leading to this decision?” Read more HERE.

The people have called “for a top to bottom investigation into the way the State’s Judicial Branch does business” as far back as 1979. Congresswoman Olympia Snowe letter, HERE.

Can the people expect accountability in the State’s courts when a large number of judges come out of  the Attorney General’s  office? The latest example of this is the confirmation of former A.G. William Schneider.  “A System In Crisis”, view HERE. (Opposition to nomination begins at 46:14)

Governor Paul LePage just recently nominated William Stokes,  chief of the criminal division in the Maine Attorney General’s Office, for judgeship, click here.

After the public forum, Michael Doyle “made an open records request seeking copies of the tapes, which Doyle says contain footage of dozens of Maine consumers who have been “broken, bankrupted and destroyed by the train wreck that is Maine’s family courts” airing complaints about Maine’s courts, specifically concerning Judge Moskowitz”, but “Representative Villa went to South Portland Town Hall and successfully obtained all of the copies of the Community Television tapes of the Open Forum on Maine Judges to prevent the forum from being aired.” “Doyle immediately went to court and sought unsuccessfully to obtain a protection order preventing Villa from further concealing the public records from disclosure, or possibly tampering with or destroying the record’s integrity.” Justice Thomas Humphrey refused to sign an Emergency Restraining Order to protect an original video of highly critical comments about fellow Judge Jeffrey Moskowitz.

This is deja vue all over again with officials suppressing the truth at Biddeford Public Access.  First Amendment case. Who’s side is Rep. Lisa Villa on? It looks good on its face that two legislators attended the forum, but unfortunately it’s not what it appears to be! Why can’t Rep. Villa “edit” the tape as to what she needs (or wants)? What is there to hide? The truth? Once again, proof is in the pudding!

Rep. Villa’s statement that “she admits that she obtained the tapes out of concerns that victims would be exploited by the footage spanning 4-hours” doesn’t hold water. Everyone who chose to speak had full knowledge that the forum was being recorded.  Villa has reason to ” fear for her own family’s safety if the court were to retaliate against her in response to her public efforts to reform the justice system.” This is what the court does! Is this why she chose to vote in the affirmative in the confirmation of William Schneider? Does she fear her colleagues too? If yes, she has reason to as they are paddling the same boat as the judges. Are legislators so fearful under the dome? If so, THEN STAND UP with the people! Why would the naming of judges “ derail Rep. Villa’s audit”? 

Linda Valentino (D-Saco), chairperson of the Judiciary Committee, disagrees “that legislators should be inquiring about judges’ qualifications” and doesn’t “feel it is within the purview of the Judiciary Committee.”  She ” doesn’t feel that this is a legislative issue.”  She “feels this is a judicial issue. ”What? You can view Senator Valentino’s job performance by listening to “A System In Crisis”. 

It is encouraging that Senator Dutremble intends to keep pushing for answers. Let’s keep watch on this. If he follows through, he will get the support of people behind him.

Judge Moskowitz is not the only judge who has violated the Rule of Law or constitutional rights of victims. He is not the only judge who has irreparably harmed and totally devastated lives and families. This is no surprise to us as we have run into roadblocks at every level in seeking accountability. Augusta has all of its “bases” covered…to include the courtrooms… with its “revolving door policy.” All doors to remedy injustices are closed!

Too many people have suffered at the hands of (in)justice whether it be the unlawful confiscation of your property, business, livelihoods, homes, children, etc.

This official corruption was not “nipped in the bud”, now elected officials can enjoy the exposure it yields.

How Governor John Baldacci and Senator Elizabeth Mitchell pushed the re-appointment of Judge Christine Foster through rather quickly. There was a pending complaint against Judge Foster before the Committee on Judicial Responsibility and Disability. This was discovered on the Maine Senate webpage In Senate Chamber, Friday, November 19, 2010:

“Pursuant to the provisions of Article 5, Part 1, Section 8 of the Constitution and the laws of the State of Maine, the Senate convened in the Senate Chamber at Ten o’clock in the morning and was called to order by President ELIZABETH H. MITCHELL of Kennebec County.” There is something wrong with this picture. The ten o’clock Senate confirmation (of Judge Christine Foster) session was posted at 7:30 A.M. Read more HERE.

As you can see, Augusta has all of its “bases” covered…to include the courtrooms… with its “revolving door policy.” When will ALL legislators wake up and step up? Or will they continue to shield the Attorney General’s Office and be part of the problem and not the solution?

You can be assured that you have not heard the end of this!

Have You Been Harmed By Maine’s Judicial System?

An Open Forum Community Meeting was held on Friday, May 2, 2014 in South Portland regarding Maine’s Courts particularly, but not exclusive to, Maine’s Family Courts and GAL Oversight.

Lori Handrahan organized Friday’s meeting as a response to Scott Dolan’s article in the PPH “Maine attorney general enters fray over divorce case.” Lori states that the article “made it look like I was the only one in the entire State of Maine who had problem with Judge Jeffrey Moskowitz.” The State of Maine was quoted in that article as saying there has never been a complaint against Moskowitz, or any other judge. Contrary to this statement, there have been complaints filed against other judges.

A real problem exists when the Senate chair of the Judiciary Committee, Linda Valentino, D-Saco, disagrees that legislators should be inquiring about judges’ qualifications.  The Judiciary Committee members’ task is to hear public testimony as to the honesty, integrity and qualifications of attorneys who are nominated by Governor LePage to be appointed and confirmed as Judges.

It is time for Maine people to see how the Legislators conduct their own actions of ignoring public presentations of written evidence and how they believe in their own favoritism of fellow legislators and Lawyers. Read more HERE.

Invited to attend this meeting, in order to learn, first hand, what is going on in Maine’s Courts were Governor Paul LePage, Mary Ann Lynch, Esq., Director of court information. A.G. Janet Mills, Linda Valentio, Senate Chair of the Judiciary Committee and many legislators were cc’d the invitation to attend. Only two legislators attended, Senator David Dutremble and Rep. Lisa Villa.

Judge Moskowitz is not the only judge who has violated the Rule of Law or constitutional rights of victims. He is not the only judge who has irreparably harmed and totally devastated lives and families. This is no surprise to us as we have run into roadblocks at every level in seeking accountability. Augusta has all of its “bases” covered…to include the courtrooms… with its “revolving door policy.” All doors to remedy injustices are closed!

Are Judges engaging in conduct prejudicial to the effective and expeditious administration of the business of the courts, inconsistent with constitutional requirements, statutes, rules of court, decisional law, and common sense and in non-compliance with the Code of judicial and ethical conduct? Is there a continuous pattern of improper activity, breach of duty, intentional harm upon litigants, official oppression and racketeering?

MAINE LAW DEFINING ’OFFICIAL OPPRESSION’: A person is guilty of official oppression if, being a public servant and acting with the intention to benefit himself or another or to harm another, he knowingly commits an unauthorized act which purports to be an act of his office, or knowingly refrains from performing a duty imposed on him by law or clearly inherent in the nature of his office.”

The Obstruction of Justice within Maine’s court system, to include key players involved in protecting Maine judges, attorneys, prosecutors, commands an investigation and accountability. This is long overdue. It is time for a probe of judicial/official misconduct ……and perhaps an audit too!

Pursuant to Title 4: Judiciary, Chapter 1 § 1 administrative responsibilities of the court and the Chief Justice, the Chief Justice, as the head of the judicial branch, shall, in accordance with the rules, regulations and orders of the Supreme Judicial Court, be responsible for the efficient operation of the judicial branch and for the expeditious dispatch of litigation therein and for the proper conduct of business in all courts and the prompt and proper administration of justice.

Pursuant to Title 4, Chapter 1 § 17, duties as State Court Administrator include, but are not limited to, the study of operation, condition of business, practice and procedure of the Judicial Department; making recommendations for the efficient administration of justice; examinations of the status of dockets of all courts so as to determine cases and other judicial business that have been unduly delayed; investigating complaints with respect to the operation of the courts.

Like Lori, there are many who know that such an investigation will not be commenced by Maine’s Attorney General, Maine’s US Attorney General, nor be initiated by our state legislators.

18 USC § 4
Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

In 2008, the Justice Department announced an agreement with administrative officials of the Maine judiciary which resolved an investigation of a complaint alleging that the Maine judicial branch, which receives federal funding,was not in compliance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968. However, under the terms of the agreement, the Justice Department monitored Maine’s compliance for a period of two years. Maine courts are still in non-compliance with Federal law and continue to accept federal funding. The Maine Supreme Court continually upholds lower court decisions which violate the rights of the people. Another investigation is in order.

The pattern of CORRUPTION AND CONFLICT OF INTEREST PERMEATES WITHIN Maine’s judicial system, click here.

When official corruption is not “nipped in the bud”, it yields greater exposure. Lori is in contact with Federal officials. Any victim of Maine’s judicial/governmental system, with documented evidence, is being requested by Lori to submit their evidence to the following agents with whom she is in contact with:  Kevin.Ohlson@usdoj.org, James.Comey@ic.fbi.gov. Inform these two people at DOJ  as to the crimes committed against you, or your family. Too many people have suffered at the hands of (in)justice whether it be the unlawful confiscation of your property, business, livelihoods, homes, children, animals, etc.  The revealing of a pattern of official oppression/obstruction of justice/violations of protected rights will yield results for victims on this state of Maine. It is crystal clear that there is more behind this “curtain” than meets the eye. It’s more than unfortunate that Maine’s elected officials/law enforcement chose to “turn a deaf ear.” It’s a public scandal.

Upholding the “Supreme Law of the State” is not a political, nor party, issue.  Years of attempts have been made to contact and connect with Maine’s Senators, Representatives, and law enforcement to investigate evidence of crimes committed against the people, to no avail. However, most recently, some Maine representatives have seen the light and with their help, we can make a positive change within Maine’s governmental and judicial systems. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

A door of opportunity has opened for those who seek the justice that Maine fails to uphold. You have an opportunity to stand up and be heard. Meanwhile, legislators with a heart, conscience, and common sense will be pursued to help restore our judicial system and our republic.

Public Exposure Moves Maine’s Attorney General Janet Mills

 

PPH reported “Maine attorney general enters fray over divorce case. In an unusual step, Attorney General Janet Mills has joined a vitriolic email exchange over the judicial branch’s appointment of a Cumberland County judge to be deputy chief of Maine’s District Court.

The appointment this week of Judge Jeffrey Moskowitz drew some heated opposition, most vocally from Lori Handrahan, a former Maine resident. Moskowitz presided over Handrahan’s bitter divorce and child custody case, which began in 2008, and ruled against her in several court orders.

After the announcement of Moskowitz’s appointment Tuesday, Handrahan sent dozens of mass emails and hundreds of tweets from several Twitter accounts to dozens of members of the Legislature and the media, demanding a federal investigation into what she called Moskowitz’s misconduct. She included a link to an online petition she started, calling for his removal from the bench.

While many state officials ignored the messages, Mills said she decided to respond, sending an email Wednesday that included Moskowitz’s May 2012 court order revoking Handrahan’s parental rights for her failure to undergo therapy for a “narcissistic personality disorder.”

Mills’ email went to the same list of legislators and media.

“I thought that since I was getting inquiries, I should give some context,” Mills said late Thursday afternoon, when asked in a phone interview why she would respond in such a public manner to Handrahan’s email.

“While this Office was not involved in her custody dispute, this decision, which is a matter of public record, may help you put into context the communications you have received from this individual,” Mills wrote in her email.” Read more HERE.

Now for the rest of the story…..

This newspaper article begs the question as to why A.G. Mills would “jump into the frey?”  It also requires additional reporting on what the PPH left out.  A.G. Mills’ conduct appears to attempt to discredit Lori Handrahan in an effort to protect the misconduct of Judge Jeffrey Moskowitz.

A.G. Janet Mills should be taking care of the peoples’ business. Notice and Demand to A.G. Janet Mills,which was brushed under the rug. Click here.  This is a matter of public trust and public interest. Yet, Janet Mills took no interest in this issue!

Jim Burke, a professor at the University of Maine School of Law,is absolutely correct in stating “People should be informed (about) who are the public servants who are working for them.” But try and get the mainstream media to report on this!

“Mills’ email drew quick criticism from state Rep. Lisa Villa, a member of the Legislature’s Judiciary Committee, who said Thursday that she is considering calling for a formal inquiry into citizens’ complaints that may have been filed against Moskowitz. In her opinion, “there are too many unanswered questions for (her) to be swayed by one document that doesn’t address some very disturbing issues.” “Villa, a Democrat from Harrison who ran for office on a platform of family court reform, said she took no position on Handrahan’s case but believes that complaints against judges are too often ignored.”

“The Senate chair of the Judiciary Committee, Linda Valentino, D-Saco, disagreed that legislators should be inquiring about judges’ qualifications. As chairperson of the Judiciary Committee, I don’t have a position. I don’t feel it is within the purview of the Judiciary Committee,” Valentino said. “I don’t feel this is a legislative issue. I feel this is a judicial issue.” She feels it’s a judicial issue, but not within the purview of her committee??

Re the Judiciary Committee:

The Judiciary Committee members’ task is to hear public testimony as to the honesty, integrity and qualifications of attorneys who are nominated by Governor LePage to be appointed and confirmed as Judges.

It is time for Maine people to see how the Legislators conduct their own actions of ignoring public presentations of written evidence and how they believe in their own favoritism of fellow legislators and Lawyers.

On March 11, 2014 a confirmation hearing was held on the nomination of former A.G. William Schneider. Sufficient documented evidence, as to Obstruction of Justice and cover up by A.G. Schneider, was submitted to the members of this committee. View video of this hearing ““A System in Crisis” and watch this travesty of public trust. (Opposition to nomination begins at 46:14) Click here.

With the documented evidence in their hands, ALL members of the Judiciary Committee voted in the affirmative as to confirmation of William Schneider.

Why did Rep. Lisa Villa, a member of the Judiciary Committee, not call for a “formal inquiry” into complaints against William Schneider? She had more than “one document.”

Would you not agree that the conduct of the members of the Judiciary Committee commands removal?

Mary Ann Lynch stated “she was unaware of any formal complaints against Moskowitz or any other judge” filed with the Committee on Judicial Responsibility and Disability.   Cabanne Howard, the committee’s executive secretary, states  “all of the complaints filed with the committee are confidential unless the committee decides to charge a judge in the Supreme Judicial Court.” Members of this committee include judges/attorneys.  Is this NOT a conflict of interest?

The Committee on Judicial Responsibility and Disability is a Personal appointment which does not require a public hearing or approval of the State Legislature. If Governor LePage’s priority is to “put Maine people ahead of politics”, he must remove the members with this committee.

Augusta has all of its “bases” covered…to include the courtrooms… with its “revolving door policy.” 

Until the status quo changes, there will be no justice within Maine’s judicial system.

Where is the media coverage on this?

Research has revealed that Maine judges must be commissioned…and they are not! No commission = no oath of office = no judicial power. Read more HERE.

Pursuant to the original constitution (1820) Art 5 sec 8, the governor shall nominate, and, with the advice and consent of the Council, appoint all judicial officers…..

This 1977 Act contradicts the original constitution.

The legislature (Judiciary Committee) has no authority to be involved in the acceptance or rejection of any nomination and appointment of judges.
