David Wildstein and Equal Protection of the Law in New Jersey.

September 12, 2017 at 3:02 P.M. A package of materials that includes the essay posted below was sent by priority mail to the following recipients:

USPS Tracking No.: #9505 5142 0126 7255 0766 51. 

No response has yet been received by me to my communications from American law enforcement. 

The inquiries of media persons, attorneys, and others into my matters, I have reason to believe, have also been ignored as of the date of this essay.

No investigation or acknowledgement, no explanation (or public record) has been created (or offered) in response to these public communications and evidence that has been provided to federal and state authorities.

International "communications," I believe, have also been ignored by American officials. 

Continuing silence may violate American laws and ethical standards for police and prosecutors as well as public officials and judges. ("An Open Letter to Cyrus Vance, Jr., Esq.")  

Enforced media silence may indicate that an effort is being made to cover-up my matters in order to protect N.J. public officials and judges. ("New Jersey's Office of Attorney Ethics.") 

These "protected individuals" in New Jersey would usually -- if not always -- be Jewish persons such as Ms. Poritz and Mr. Rabner. ("Stuart Rabner and Conduct Unbecoming to the Judiciary in New Jersey" and "Deborah T. Poritz and Conduct Unbecoming to the Judiciary in New Jersey.") 

I will continue to write and disseminate these texts as widely as possible. 

The essay that appears below with one hundred sources attached will be sent to Justice Ruth Bader-Gingsburg of the U.S. Supreme Court, Joon H. Kim, Esq. of the U.S. Justice Department or whomever is appointed (if anyone ever receives this position) as U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, and the Cuban Embassy to the United States of America.

I will indicate at a future time that materials have also been sent to The Indypendent and The Guardian without specifying the date of mailing or tracking numbers for the packages sent to these publications that will include possibly relevant materials concerning the identification of "Farai Chideya" allegedly of New York University. ("What is it like to be plagiarized?" and "'Brideshead Revisited': A Movie Review.")

Removing items from my mailbox amounts to theft not only from me, but also from those sending me letters or cards, whether they are valuable or not. Tampering with the mails is a federal crime and far from "ethical" behavior for any attorney. Mr. Neary? "Farai"? ("John McGill, Esq., the OAE, and New Jersey Corruption.")

Calls received at my home from 214-283-1316 on August 14, 2017 at 6:02 P.M., the caller identified only as "Survey," actually seem to come from a Trenton government agency. ("New Jersey's Office of Attorney Ethics.")

October 12, 2017 at 5:30 P.M. A NYPL scheduled discussion of Ian Carmon & Shana Knizhnik, Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Gingsburg will take place this day:

"Inspired by the Tumblr [sic.] that amused the Justice herself and brought to you by its founder and an award-winning journalist, [this book and discussion] is more than just a love letter. It draws on intimate access to Gingsburg's family members, close friends, colleagues, and clerks, as well as an interview with the Justice herself." 

As depicted in this work Justice Ruth Bader-Ginsburg is concerned with justice issues in society and the ethics of the court systems of the various states so that the matters examined in this essay and blogs as well as the experiences that I have brought to the attention of federal authorities should be distressing at the very least to Justice Gingsburg meriting an appropriate response or suitable action from government officials.

Starvation tactics or thefts of funds belonging to me will not stop me from writing or mailing the materials indicated to the identified recipients. 

"Embargoes" will never defeat those committed to independence and resistance against even the most powerful forces of government. 

I will not be deterred by anyone's threats against me. 

I alone (not my family members) am responsible for my opinions. 

As a result of an attack on this text the spacing in the first item quoted below was altered and this deformation cannot be repaired at this time. Sadly, the computer crime seems to come from New Jersey government officials. Mr. Sires?

I will do my best to repair any harm done to this essay in the days ahead.

The next essay that I will post at this blog will examine the Menendez trial in detail.

Simon Tisdale, "America's Influence Deflates: The World's Balance of Power is Changing but Who Will Rise in the Succession [?]," The Guardian Weekly, July 14-20, 2017, p. 1. ("With Donald Trump ordering a show of force off the Korean peninsula and warning of 'very severe' reprisals, it fell to China and Russia -- usually bad guys in the White House's global narrative -- to appeal for calm and dialogue. The confrontation, not yet defused, intensified broader fears that the world is becoming more dangerous and chaotic -- and that no one is really in charge." [emphasis added] America's loudly and globally proclaimed "decline and fall" is generating a furious free-for-all on the world's stage. A majority of Western Europeans today view Mr. Trump as less competent or professional a leader of his nation than either Mr. Putin or Mr. Xi as leaders of their nations. It is difficult to disagree with this assessment of President Trump. "'This is totally amazing!' -- Donald J. Trump.")  

David E. Sanger, Choi Sang-Hun, William J. Broad ["Jennifer Shuessler"], "North Koreans Put California in Strike Range," The New York Times, July 29, 2017, p. A1. (Increased incompetence and lying from the White House is interpreted to allow for more challenges to U.S. power and influence as well as heightening the danger of a nuclear confrontation and war in the Korean peninsula. Experts speculate, publicly, that a nuclear warhead on an ICBM should be available to North Korea by November of this year. More chest thumping and saber rattling from Mr. Trump will make things worse. Diplomacy is needed, but is hardly a skill or form of political expertise cultivated by Mr. Trump. Mr. Tillerson is inexperienced and over his head in complex negotiations as well as inept in using the resources of a depleted and demoralized State Department.)

David E. Sanger & Choe San-Hun, ["Jennifer Shuessler" and "Manohla Dargis,"] "Nuclear Blast by North Korea Magnifies Crisis," The New York Times, September 4, 2017, p. A1. (It appears that North Korea's nuclear program is ahead of schedule. Despite U.S. denials a Hydrogen nuclear warhead can now be mounted on an ICBM by the North Koreans. That nation's stated goal beyond 2017 is to increase their nuclear arsenal. The saber rattling by Mr. Trump has made the danger WORSE for all nations. Mr. Obama's and Hillary Clinton's "constructive diplomacy" diminished the danger to everyone, including the North Koreans. Is it time for diplomacy rather than threats by the U.S. at the U.N. meeting? Are U.S. threats only a way of "begging for war"?)  

Sheri Fink, "Two C.I.A. Psychologists Can Face Trial, Judge Rules," The New York Times, July 29, 2017, p. A19. (A civil law suit against Mitchell and Jenssen -- neither of these men will go to prison for the torture of many human beings -- will proceed to trial with the notorious "psychologists" indemnified by YOU, the American taxpayer. There is now a very deep pocket from which plaintiffs' lawyers may collect damages. The same government picking up the tab for damages in this matter has previously denied responsibility for the tortures, or any agency relation with these C.I.A. psychologists -- an agency relation, apparently, is something that is now admitted because it is undeniable after the Senate's 6,700 page report on the C.I.A. tortures. OAE? Will New Jersey's self-proclaimed torture "psychologists" ever face trial on criminal charges? "Terry Tuchin, Diana Lisa Riccioli, and New Jersey's Agency of Torture" then "Is Truth Dead?" and "On Bullshit.")   

Sally Q. Yates, "Protect the Justice Department From Trump," (Op-Ed) The New York Times, July 29, 2017, p. A25. (The threat to the rule of law in America is such as to make the entire nation a New Jersey-like sewer of corruption and legal failure unless matters are dealt with promptly to ensure the independence of the Special Prosecutor and all related Justice Department prosecutions. "New Jersey is America's Legal Toilet" and "New Jersey's Political and Supreme Court Whores.")   

Benjamin Wieser, "Sheldon Silver's 2015 Corruption Conviction Is Overturned," The New York Times, July 13, 2017, posted at http://www.nytimes.com/2017/07/13. ("A federal appeals court Thursday overturned the 2015 corruption conviction of Sheldon Silver, once the powerful Speaker of the N.Y. State Assembly, saying the judge's jury instructions were in error in light of a United States Supreme Court decision that has since narrowed the legal definition of corruption." Mr. Menendez will seek to make use of this same decision in his forthcoming trial to move for a dismissal of charges before his matter goes to the jury or, later if necessary, to appeal an unfavorable verdict. In both instances, however, the efforts of the Silver/Menendez defense may fail: First, the Justice Department will re-try Mr. Silver on the same charges "formulated" to meet the new standard set forth by the Supreme Court and the proceedings as well as subsequent appeals -- if Mr. Silver is convicted yet again -- will likely consume the balance of Mr. Silver's life even if he never goes to prison. Second, it is unlikely that a federal District Court judge who has spent weeks before the September trial date for Mr. Menendez selecting a jury pool that is -- or may be -- "bias-proof" will summarily dismiss the government's case and send home his carefully chosen prospective jurors. Circuit Courts have already rejected essentially the same argument from Mr. Menendez's lawyers. It is probable that the Justice Department will make a prima facie case even under the new U.S. Supreme Court decision that is said to "protect" corrupt politicians. Senator Menendez's conduct almost certainly meets the new definition or any understanding of corruption and bribery. If the threshold standard is met, as I am sure that it will be by prosecutors, the matter will be turned over to the jury. Mr. Menendez is very likely to be convicted by a jury of sane persons: "Menendez Charged With Selling His Office" and "Menendez Croney's Office Raided.")  

John Reed, "Netanyahu's Former Aide to Testify in Corruption Case: Probe Centers on Claims the Premier and His Wife Accepted Lavish Presents," The Financial Times Weekend Edition, August 5-6, 2017, p. 4. (Additional allegations of corruption on an international level are now spreading to other members of the Likud party.)  

Tom Moran, "Christie is Worst Choice to Replace Sessions. So It Could Happen," The Star-Ledger, July 26, 2017 at 6:16 P.M.; posted online July 26, 2017 at 6:15 P.M. http://www.nj.com (That a man who lied, publicly, and who may also have obstructed justice in New Jersey's most visible political scandal in recent years is considered a suitable candidate for U.S. Attorney General says a lot about the presidency of Donald J. Trump. The confirmation of Christopher Wray as F.B.I. Director -- Mr. Wray may still be in possession of Governor Christie's old phone! -- is another indication of the depths to which we have fallen as a nation. "Christie and Mastro Accuse Each Other of Lying.")

Michelangelo Conte, "Man Charged With Sex Assault of 15-Year-Old in Bergen County," Jersey Journal, July 27, 2017, posted online http://www.nj.com/ journal-news. (Brandon Ryan, 22, is only one of dozens of persons throughout New Jersey charged with sexual assaults of minors within a month. New allegations of networks exporting child-porn and prostituting children have arisen. This incident occurred in a self-proclaimed "snooty" section of New Jersey called "Ridgewood." If you fancy child molestation this may be the town for you. "New Jersey Welcomes Child Molesters" and "Another Massive Child Porn Crisis in New Jersey.")  

Bill Duhart, "Man, 25, Charged With Trying to Lure Minor for Sex, Authorities Say," Jersey Journal, June 2, 2017, posted online http://www.nj.com/camden. (Bob Menendez supporter, Pedro Rodriguez, sought minors online for sex. Numerous "recruiters" for organizations specializing in children made available for sex in exchange for cash are highly active online. I cannot say how old were the young women with whom Ms. Poritz had "relationships" over the years of her so-called "partnership" with "Diana Lisa Riccioli." "Marilyn Straus Was Right!" and "Diana's Friend Goes to Prison.")

Adam Liptak, "On Summer Docket, Blunt Talk on Big Cases," The New York Times, August 1, 2017, p. A13. (Ms. Poritz is alleged to have boasted of her friendship with Justice Ruth Bader-Gingsburg. I will send a copy of this essay with attachments pertaining to "Farai Chideya" to Justice Gingsburg posting public proof of having done so. I do not expect a response to my communications from Justice Gingsburg.) 

Russ Bultner & Nate Schweiber, "Beaches Empty, Christie Clings to a Last Fight," The New York Times, July 3, 2017, p. A1. (Christie is still trying to get money from Horizon/Blue Cross-Blue Shield for his campaign against drugs in New Jersey. It appears that this effort has also failed and that Christie's governorship will end not with a bang but with a wimper. "Criminal Complaint Against Christie Allowed to Proceed" and "Chris Christie and Joey Torres in New Trouble.")   

Nick Coransanti, "Christie Ally May Avoid Prison in Bridge Scandal: Prosecutors Seek No Time for Mastermind," The New York Times, July 12, 2017, p. A16. (The use of the word "mastermind" by prosecutors to describe David Wildstein who, along with Chris Christie, "orchestrated" the GWB crisis that cost millions of dollars to the region and placed thousands of persons' lives and welfare at great risk is rarely accompanied in federal criminal proceedings by the statement: "... faces no prison sentence." This case, therefore, must be seen as symbolic of double standards and contradictions in New Jersey's legal world, especially, as well as revealing exactly who benefits from those double standards and injustices. It is rarely African-American defendants who do NOT go to prison: "Larry Peterson Cleared by DNA" and "So Black and So Blue in Prison.") 

Nick Corasanti, "At Sentencing, Ex-Ally of Christie Says, 'I Willingly Drank the Cool Aid,'" The New York Times, July 13, 2017, p. A9. (The self-professed "mastermind" of the Bridgegate scandal who also insisted on Mr. Christie's complete knowledge of the operation avoids the prison term he so richly deserves by ensuring that persons following his orders on fear of reprisals will be incarcerated for years. Mr. Wildstein, an admitted liar and distinguished member of the New Jersey Bar Association, appears to be "connected" to the likes of David Samson, Loretta Weinberg, Debbie Poritz, "Arthur Goldberg," and Stuart Rabner along with Barry Albin together with Mr. Albin's rabbi perhaps. Solomon Dwek was probably a friend from David Wildstein's early days in New Jersey's legal circles. "Have you  no shame Mr. Rabner?") 

"Federal prosecutors recommended on Tuesday that David Wildstein, who has declared himself as the mastermind of the so-called Bridgegate scandal, serve no prison time as a result of his testimony against his co-conspirators, which followed his guilty plea." (NYT, 7-12-17, p. A16.)

David Wildstein, who is described even by his alleged friends as a "pathological liar" suffering from "delusions of grandeur" and as the most "despicable" person in New Jersey (Mr. Baroni argued precisely this claim through his counsel), was the subject of efforts by prosecutors to make essentially Wildstein's defense lawyers' argument that Mr. Wildstein should not serve one day in prison, but should receive an entirely non-custodial sentence for his starring role in the Bridgegate drama. ("Chris Christie's Bridge of Sighs.") 

It is true that defendants who turn on their co-conspirators and fellow criminals by testifying for the government usually receive due consideration for their efforts at the time of sentencing for their own admitted crimes. Maria Martinez? Gilberto Garcia? Mary Anne Kriko? 

It is unusual, however, for federal prosecutors -- who often seek some prison time for the main culprit in a major criminal conspiracy involving a huge public scandal that results in danger to the public and loss of millions of taxpayer dollars -- to join defense counsel in asking for NO prison time whatsoever for a person as utterly loathsome as Mr. Wildstein. 

Only Solomon Dwek ("The Rabbi's Son") received similar consideration and kindness from the feds even as Mr. Dwek was required to serve some prison time. ("44 Persons Arrested in New Jersey's Latest Corruption Crisis.") 

Leniency for Mr. Wildstein is especially bizarre since he was the opposite of cooperative initially. All of Wildstein's actions from the beginning of the conspiracy have been brazen and duplicitous as well as malicious:

"After initially stonewalling in testimony before state lawmakers who were investigating the lane closings, Mr. Wildstein pleaded guilty to two counts of conspiracy." (NYT, 7-12-17, p. A16.) 

Thanks to the assistance of many official and unofficial "friends," perhaps a rabbi or two, David Wildstein was allowed to submit through his lawyer, Alan Zega, Esq., a 116-page memorandum prior to sentencing recommending "release of the defendant without any period of incarceration." ("Larry Peterson Cleared by DNA" and "Albert Florence and New Jersey's Racism.") 

Mumia Abu-Jamal -- after prevailing in a Circuit Court appeal that threw out his death sentence and trial findings (the verdict was allowed to stand for unknown reasons even as "racism poisoned" the transcripts according to the judges) because all legal processes were "contaminated" by bigotry -- not only was denied a new trial, but was sentenced by prosecutors, unilaterally, without being allowed to submit pre-sentencing reports or a legal memorandum of any kind supported by statements from distinguished authorities calling for Mr. Abu-Jamal's release. ("Freedom For Mumia Abu-Jamal" and "Justice For Mumia Abu-Jamal.")

No psychological reports, prospective employment statements, list of publications (or honors) received from all over the world would be considered in the matter of Mr. Abu-Jamal by a neutral decision-maker (or tribunal) in violation of due process and equal protection that is guaranteed to all persons under the U.S. Constitution:  

"The Wildstein [pre-sentencing memo] includes dozens of letters written by a few people who have known him for a long time and have been closest to him, including relatives." (NYT, 7-12-17, p. A16.) 

Many distinguished attorneys and officials from New Jersey -- mostly fellow Jews -- allegedly provided supporting statements and letters for Wildstein. ("New Jersey Rabbi Charged With Child Molesting.")

Unidentified "others" acted from behind the scenes, perhaps including Mr. Rabner and Ms. Poritz (fellow Republicans), to PROTECT Mr. Wildstein and prevent his incarceration. ("Neil M. Cohen, Esq. and Conduct Unbecoming to the Legislature in New Jersey" and "Sybil R. Moses and Conduct Unbecoming to the Judiciary in New Jersey.") 

Prior to prosecution by federal officials the Office of Attorney Ethics (OAE) in Trenton took no action against Mr. Wildstein. ("New Jersey's 'Ethical' Legal System" and "New Jersey's Office of Attorney Ethics.")

David Wildstein was considered for a Superior Court judgeship like the one offered to Estela De La Cruz despite her fondness for prostitutes and abuse of young women to say nothing of her willingness to slander colleagues from behind-their-backs at the request of politicians for a small fee. ("Marilyn Straus Was Right!")

Mr. Wildstein may have served on the legal ethics committee in New Jersey. He was certainly known as a behind-the-back specialist who excelled in "dirty tricks," lies, frame-ups and smear campaigns against his fellow legal and political professionals: 

" ... he played on the dirtier edges of New Jersey politics, having carried out many favors for his 'constituent of one' -- Mr. Christie -- and blogged anonymously under the pseudonym 'Wally Edge'." (NYT, 7-12-17, p. A16.) 

"Arthur Goldberg"? Mr. Wiener's "Carlos Danger"? "Jennifer Shuessler et als."? "Rachel Maddow"? "Farai Chideya"? There seems to be a pattern concerning who makes use of fictitious names and why they do so. ("The Naked Ape" and "New Jersey Lawyers' Ethics Farce.") 

Persons who obeyed Mr. Wildstein's criminal orders -- who did what he asked them to do in connection with Bridgegate (often under protest) -- explained that Wildstein is a sadistic, sociopathic "liar who was shifting his testimony to try to avoid prison time." (NYT, 7-12-17, p. A16.)

The actual sentence imposed by the judge amounted to a tap on the wrist and will have little effect on Mr. Wildstein's career in New Jersey's soiled legal and political world:

"Mr. Wildstein, 55, was instead sentenced to three years probation, 500 hours of community service and more than $20,000 in fines and restitution." (NYT, 7-13-17, p. A19.)

Rather than accepting responsibility as the main culprit of this incident that "magnified the stereotype of the politics of his state[,]" Mr. Wildstein blamed the hubris, arrogance, and shared mendacity -- that is, LYING -- of Mr. Christie offering only more excuses:

" ... 'I willingly drank the Kool-Aid of a man I've known since I was 15-years-old and I must now accept the consequences.' ..." (NYT, 7-13-17, p. A19.)


Mr. Wildstein unknowingly confirmed many of the points I have made (and continue to make) about the hypocrisy, lies, double-standards, and frauds of New Jersey's legal profession and judiciary as embodied in the state's contaminated and laughable legal ethics establishment. ("Is America's Legal Ethics a Lie?" and "Legal Ethics Today.") 

It is impossible to take seriously or even to respect the opinions or verdicts concerning one's ethics of the sleazy and despicable lawyers affiliated with New Jersey's now admittedly corrupt legal ethics office -- an office of so-called "lawyers" who seem to lack even the decency to face those whom they have victimized and insulted, stolen from and lied about, or to admit that innocent persons have been and continue to be hurt by their incompetence and lies:

"Mr. Wildstein criticized a culture in Trenton, the state capital, [sic.] that he said was 'supervised by a group of former federal prosecutors and career public servants who encouraged the behavior that I now deeply regret.' ..." (NYT, 7-13-17, p. A19.) ("John McGill, Esq., the OAE, and New Jersey Corruption" and "New Jersey is America's Legal Toilet" then "New Jersey's Political and Supreme Court Whores.") 

The OAE offered the usual lies and excuses while blaming others for the state agency's failed legal ethics and inability to protect the public from a hideous nightmare that hurts every lawyer, judge, and litigant in the state as OAE lawyers continue to try (and fail) to cover their own backsides. ("Corrupt Law Firms, Senator Bob, and New Jersey Ethics" and "Have you no shame Mr. Rabner?") 

Is it true that Mark Neary, Esq. has hired a lawyer and is refusing to cooperate? Shame on you Mr. McGill. ("New Jersey's Politically-Connected Lawyers On the Tit" and "New Jersey Lawyers' Ethics Farce.") 

Attorneys described Mr. Wildstein as "the Bernie Madoff of New Jersey politics," a "maniacal" and "horrible" person. The same assessment was offered of David Samson. Debbie Poritz? ("David Samson Resigns.") 

Mr. Christie's office attacked Mr. Wildstein's credibility and integrity which until recently was aligned with the governor's authority:

"Mr. Wildstein devised this outrageous scheme all by himself, [not many people believe this claim!] coerced others to participate in it and then turned himself in to avoid imprisonment for the crimes he has admitted to committing."

Governor Christie's spokesperson Brian Murray said:

"[David Wildstein] is a liar who admitted throughout his testimony that he fabricated evidence [John McGill? Estela De La Cruz? Bob Menendez? Gilberto Garcia? Maria Martinez a.k.a. Barcelo?] of a relationship with the governor that never existed to enhance people's perception of his power, replete with 'rules' and 'sayings' that existed only in his own mind." (NYT, 7-13-17, p. A19.) ("On Bullshit" and "Is Truth Dead?")

("Our senior senator is about to go on trial on corruption charges in a case that has a little bit of everything that makes life in this democracy so fascinating: parties in the tropics, a mysterious and beautiful Russian woman named Svitlana, [younger than the senator's daughter,] and a big dose of Palm Beach high life." Mr. Menendez was rumored for years to relish the occasional snort of cocaine and frolics with underage prostitutes. Bribes from the sort of people who can provide such "pleasures" may finally have caught up with Boss Bob. Mr. Menendez has disgraced the U.S. Senate and, to the extent such a thing is still possible, New Jersey's disgusting legal world that has been described as a "whore house." Mr. Menendez's "good friend" -- Dr. Salomon Melgen -- has been convicted on 67 counts of fraud and theft by deception. Allegedly, these thefts from the taxpayers took place with Senator Menendez's assistance. Melgen now faces 20 years-to-life in prison unless he "cooperates" in testifying against Mr. Menendez. Menendez and his one-time partner, Lilian Munoz, are not the sort of persons whose behind-the-back insults or opinions of me are very troublesome. It is now abundantly clear that they are and were the filth that I always thought them to be. What I require from such persons is the truth about these matters since they are guilty of violating my rights: "New Jersey's Office of Attorney Ethics" then "Menendez Charged With Selling His Office" and "Menendez Consorts With Underage Prostitutes.") 

Paul Mulshine, "Will the Eye Doctor See His Way Clear to Singing on the Senator?," The Star-Ledger, August 13, 2017; posted online August 13, 2017 at 6:32 A.M. ("On Tuesday a judge in Newark ruled that the trial of U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez on corruption charges next month will go ahead as scheduled despite the senator's appeal on technical grounds." It now seems that the senator's latest appeal is also heading for defeat. More significantly, a federal judge in Florida has delayed the sentencing hearing for Dr. Melgen until after the trial of Senator Menendez in September. This suggests that Dr. Melgen's likely testimony against the senator will be a factor in the judge's sentencing decision. Mr. Menendez's "good friend" and a person the senator "trusts always to tell the truth" -- those were Senator Menendez's words! -- will be testifying for the prosecution and against Mr. Menendez. Early reports suggest that things are not going well for Bob Menendez in his trial.)

Sean Goldmacher, [Abbe Lowell?] "How the Menendez Trial Could Produce a Seismic Shift in the Senate," The New York Times, August 18, 2017, p. A22. (Despite denials by "Patricia Enright" -- this is a fictitious name for a so-called Bob Menendez spokesperson who is sometimes the senator himself, or Lilian Munoz, or any number of "others" almost certainly including his attorneys -- the Menendez team has essentially lost every motion and appeal and will probably lose the forthcoming trial. Dr. Melgen's likely testimony will hurt the senator. It is not a defense to bribery to argue that, because Menendez's vote is needed by Democrats against the Trump agenda, Mr. Menendez should get away with accepting pay-offs and other despicable conduct, like enjoying sex with 14-year-old prostitutes, allegedly, and probably not for the first time in his life, as the guest of Dr. Melgen in the Dominican Republic. Menendez should have resigned from the U.S. Senate when he was indicted and arrested. If convicted, which is highly likely, Menendez will be forced to leave the senate as even Democrats now acknowledge. Menendez has disgraced and sullied the U.S. Senate and New Jersey's legal profession. It is said by unidentified colleagues that Mr. Menendez's continued presence in the more Olympian chamber has fostered a stench that will not be removed quickly from the hallowed premises. I can only hope that Mr. Menendez will depart from the public stage with some semblance of dignity while he still can. I look forward to witnessing his trial in September if I can. It is apparently Mr. Menendez through his croneys in state government who is preventing a resolution of my matters. "Menendez Charged With Selling His Office" and "Illegal Payments to Bob Menendez.")

Nicolas Pugliese, "Scientists May Help Sniff Out Juror Bias: Menendez Defense Team Faces Challenge Tuesday," The Record, August 21, 2017, p. A1. (Mr. Menendez's team will be hiring jury consultants to filter out persons who may be persuaded by overwhelming evidence of guilt to find the defendant, Mr. Menendez, guilty of accepting bribes and other offenses. The goal of such consultants is to identify jurors who will be viscerally reluctant to convict any defendant regardless of the evidence. There is also a real fear by the government that Mr. Menendez's sleazier "friends" -- some with alleged intelligence training -- will seek to identify potential jurors from the jury pool and "reach" them, or their family members, before trial. Any public employees will be especially vulnerable to such tactics that are far from unheard of in Hudson County where Mr. Menendez is "Lord of All He Surveys." I certainly understand these concerns on the part of federal prosecutors.)    

Nicolas Pugliese, "Menendez Jury Selection Underway: 50 People report for corruption case," The Record, August 25, 2017, p. 3A. (Mr. Menendez pleaded not guilty, again, before the commencement of trial proceedings in connection with a superseding indictment filed last fall by the Department of Justice against Senator Menendez and Dr. Melgen, who also pleaded not guilty at this time, even as these men's pleas may change at any time before a jury verdict is received. The 50-person jury panel has been pre-screened by a District Court judge for bias. "If Menendez is convicted and steps down or is forced to relinquish his Senate seat before mid-January, [2018] Gov. Chris Christie, a Republican and Trump ally, would be able to pick [select?] his replacement. It would take a two-thirds majority vote to remove Menendez from the Senate." Democrats have made it clear that, if Mr. Menendez is convicted, the New Jersey senator would resign or certainly be removed by the necessary vote. There has never in the history of the United States of America been a senator casting votes after a felony conviction. The "integrity" of the upper house would not permit such an eventuality. I can not say whether Mr. Menendez -- or persons close to him -- have received subpoenas to testify before a grand jury in connection with events in my life. I suspect so. Among other alleged or prospective witnesses before such a grand jury dealing with events in my humble life are: Maria Martinez a.k.a. Barcelo? Alex Booth? Gilberto Garcia? Albio Sires? "Arthur Goldberg"? "Farai Chideya"?) 

Nick Corasanti, "Menendez is Denied Reprieve From Corruption Trial to Cast Senate Vote," The New York Times, August 24, 2017, p. A17. (Mr. Menendez's efforts to avoid this trial, or to have the proceedings unfold around his schedule and at his convenience, have failed so far. The federal judge in Menendez's trial prefers to be in charge of his courtroom and is not seeking favors or appointment to the Circuit Court. This is very different from how things work in good old Hudson County. The appeals filed by Mr. Menendez have failed. Politics in this situation happens to be irrelevant to the jurisprudential reality which, seemingly, is beyond the grasp of Mr. Menendez. There is a serious factual mistake in the Times article. It is true that two charges were thrown out by the District Court judge early in the proceedings, but the charges were then restored by the appellate courts and are part of the superseding indictment brought against Mr. Menendez by the D.O.J. pursuant to Circuit Court opinion(s). Mr. Menendez now faces 11 and not 8 charges: "Mr. Menendez is charged with receiving luxury hotel rooms, flights on Dr. Melgen's private jet and donations to a Democratic 'Super PAC' in exchange for political advocacy, lobbying and favors, [emphasis added!] such as intervening to help obtain visas for Mr. Melgen's college-age girlfriends from Brazil, Ukraine and the Dominican Republic." Dr. Melgen and Mr. Menendez are both sixty-two years-old. They may have "shared" some of these "girlfriends" although the expense for the ladies' "services" was no doubt borne entirely by Dr. Melgen. It is irrelevant whether Mr. Menendez happened to regard Dr. Melgen as a "friend." It strains rational credibility to believe that a sophisticated professional and wealthy businessperson, like Dr. Melgen, would "give" hundreds of thousands of dollars and "willing" young women to a "buddy" without expectation of return, especially when lobbying efforts by Senator Menendez followed immediately upon cash payments, or "other" rewards. Coincidence? Very unlikely.)

[sic.]" The apathy of the local police witnessing the assaults on students and other peaceful protesters by Right-wingers -- with whom cops clearly sympathized -- and doing nothing was revolting. To equate the loathsome and vicious violence of white nationalists or racists with the faltering self-defense efforts of outnumbered young protesters, many of them women, is absurd. The president's early remarks were deeply unsatisfactory. I was particularly struck by images of obese white men punching in the face a young woman student from the University of Virginia as police officers looked on, apathetically, even as police had done nothing at a similar protest and riot at Berkeley College earlier this year.

Torture is a crime and can never be mere "science" even if such a crime can be committed "scientifically." Murder can also be committed "scientifically": "Prohibiting data collection as an adjunct to torture makes it harder for perpetrators to hone [improve?] their technique. It stands in the way of efforts to make torture, like some medical procedure, 'safe and effective.' And it keeps apologists from rationalizing that abuse is acceptable since researchers are making improvements." To the extent that I can discern a meaning to this statement it amounts to suggesting that, say, supervised child sexual abuse or rape is beneficial -- or that rational persons would argue for such a conclusion -- because it will allow for child rape "techniques" to become "safer and more effective." The heinous criminal nature of the act in question -- whether it is torture or child rape -- is forgotten. At least one author of this piece was also the person responsible for a previous Op-Ed essay that I criticized strongly: "Ought Implies Can.")

Simply walking in Manhattan on a daily basis the hatred is palpable. Overheard conversations cannot be reproduced at this blog. I cannot say why people feel this way. Under such circumstances for Jews, of all people, to express hatred of others based on race seems "unwise" to say the least. Affiliations between Right-wing Jews and Mr. Trump are also difficult to understand when there is such a seemingly friendly attitude on the part of this White House to Neo-Nazis and white supremacists.)

Also, two other Jewish men who participated in beating the helpless young victim -- Abraham Winkler, 43, and Pinchas Brevor, 22 -- pleaded guilty to lesser charges and will also not go to prison, or jail, for a single day. All of the Jewish men involved in this incident have, so far, avoided prison time. The victim Taj Patterson may go to prison, however, not for committing any crime, but for walking in a Jewish neighborhood at night and insisting on his legal rights.

(The weaker dollar has helped corporate earnings and all persons shifting currency assets to Euros, but the average American wage earner is hardly in this category. It is not simply that American workers are earning fewer dollars and that jobs being created are either 1). very high earning and not for blue collar workers; or 2). marginal employment at minimum wage; but that the dollars paid to all U.S. workers purchase less than they did a year ago. In other words the net effect of Trump's policies so far -- or of reactions to Trump proposals -- is negative because there is a heightening of inequalities that are very dangerous in a heterogeneous society leading to increased tensions and violence that often expresses itself in seemingly unrelated matters like the removal of statues or other cultural issues. Economic inequality is not a prescription for social peace.) 

"Trump's Presidency is Courting Self-Destruction," (Editorial) Financial Times, July 29-30, 2017, p. 6.

Kate Taylor & Annie Correal, "New Jersey Beaches Reopen; Governor Catches More Heat," The New York Times, July 5, 2017, p. A14. (Mr. Christie's deplorable and, sadly, typical efforts to lie his way out of his latest predicament were as pathetic as his forthcoming exit from New Jersey politics. No wonder the OAE can only post lies and smears online rather than facing me and telling the truth, finally, in connection with these matters. New Jersey government and courts are like the proverbial fish that stinks from the head: "Mr. Christie tried to blame the speaker for the shutdown, decorating government buildings around the state with posters featuring Mr. Prieto, saying, 'This facility is closed because of this man.' ...")

Nick Corasanti, "Marijuana Growers Eye Expansion in New Jersey After Governor's Race," The New York Times, July 8, 2017, p. A17. (Mr. Menendez has many friends in the, shall we say, "narcotics industry" in Hudson County. Prospective marijuana growers are considering a facility in Hudson County. "Boss Bob" should favor these developments. Are the gambling machines for which bribes were paid to police in Union City and West New York still available? Are the bribes to cops still being paid to run the machines? So many cops were on the payroll of organized crime in Hudson County as my old client, Mr. Garcia, can attest: "Illegal Payments to Bob Menendez" and "More Problems For Menendez -- Tapes!") 

Patrick McGeehan, "Ferry Serving Jersey Shore Loses Funds Amid Inquiry," The New York Times, July 11, 2017, p. A21.

Law enforcement is used as a weapon by the far-Right to force African-American citizens to the proverbial "back-of-the-bus." I do not believe that the clock can be turned back on civil rights in America. Mr. Sessions no doubt believes that this book discriminates against white persons.) 

Jonah Engel Bromwich, "Emergence of DNA Evidence Leads to a Stay of Execution for an Inmate in Missouri," The New York Times, August 28, 2017, p. A10. (Marcellus Williams has spent years in prison on death row. On the eve of execution DNA evidence may finally have exonerated yet another victim of America's legal racism. Prosecutors often prefer to lie and cover-up the truth -- until such tactics are no longer an option -- rather admit to their errors. Without the DNA evidence Mr. Williams might well have been executed even if prosecutors had plenty of reasons to doubt his guilt. Please stop lying OAE and Mr. Rabner. Tell me the truth.)

Jocey Fortin, "Baltimore Dismisses More Criminal Cases," The New York Times, August 23, 2017, p. A11. ("Videos show police officers engaging in 'questionable activity.' ..." Fabricating and planting evidence; beating and killing suspects; covering-up exonerating facts -- are all far from unusual tactics for police in America targeting African-American defendants. Dozens of cases from several parts of the country are dismissed every day because of video evidence of such police misconduct. What happens when there is no evidence, or videos and other proofs are destroyed in police custody, so that innocent persons are convicted? Do prosecutors tell the truth when such facts are known to them? Or do they lie until they can lie no more regardless of the suffering for many innocent persons?

Glen Harlan Reynolds, "Forget Russia. Fire Sessions Over Forfeiture," The Record, (Op-Ed) July 26, 2017, p. 9A. (Mr. Sessions is seeking the power to take your property and money -- without compensation -- by claiming through a legal fiction that such "property" is "guilty of a crime." This is not merely the old rule concerning the proceeds of a criminal activity or conspiracy, but the claim that wealth, as such, can be guilty of an offense and should be punished. Naturally, this "creative legal principle" or proposed doctrinal development will not be applied to Wall Street's crooked financiers and the millions of dollars they have scammed, only to selected members of the urban underclass who happen to be violent and moderately wealthy. The issue has not yet reached the U.S. Supreme Court where, I suspect, the concept will be rejected unanimously.)

There is no way to explain this phenomenon apart from payoffs to local cops, prosecutors, judges and politicians. This narcotics/child-porn industry seems to be "protected" in parts of New Jersey. In fact, narcotics seem to be a part of how children are made vulnerable to sexual exploitation in the Garden State. Alina Fallat? Onaida Duran? Diana Lisa Riccioli?

Hundreds of millions of dollars seem to vanish like a gambler's lucky streak. Profits decrease as sales increase. There is amazingly little concern on the part of cooperative politicians who eye lottery funds longingly as they ponder the pension gap.)

"State High Court Backs Transparency," (Editorial) The Record, July 12, 2017, p. A10. (New Jersey's Supreme Court does not deny allegations against the OAE and the Trenton tribunal itself in connection with my matters. The justices refuse to comply with New Jersey's full disclosure laws and state constitutional provisions or with U.S. Supreme Court due process requirements under the American Constitution. The only response that I and others have received, so far, is silence and stone walling cover-ups of the facts. The only plausible inference or response to such a phenomenon in America's legal system is that an effort to protect either a person or criminal conspiracy involving multiple government officials and/or judges is still underway in New Jersey under the auspices of the state's very same soiled Supreme Court. Is this New Jersey's legal ethics? Do New Jersey's justices believe their own rhetoric concerning "transparency"? "On Bullshit" and "Is Truth Dead?")

Many of the same allegations against former Chief Justice "Little Debbie" Poritz may explain my continuing difficulties in getting to the truth in Trenton. John McGill, Esq.? Even a federal grand jury may be lied to by New Jersey lawyers and the state's legal ethics office. Perhaps such lying is deemed "ethical" by New Jersey's self-protective Supreme Court?

Chris Christie -- known as "Mr. Gentleman C" at his law school -- has made a hideous spectacle of himself, LYING and squirming to weasel out of a political and legal crisis for which he blamed underlings who were merely obeying orders. The whole of New Jersey's political and legal world is described as an "unseemly farce." Mr. Christie holds the distinction of being the most unpopular governor in the state's history.

Mr. Oriente did much worse and was protected for years by Hudson County politicians whom he "helped out" in return. I am sure that Mr. Menendez and Nicky Sacco can speak to this issue since, as I recall, they were very friendly with Mr. Oriente as was Albio Sires. Is this one of the people you were paying off Mr. Garcia? As I recall you claimed to "know" Mr. Menendez also? Did Mr. McGill tell you to "try to get your money back" from me? Was the suggestion received from Gilberto Garcia that you try to put financial pressure on me? I wonder how many others were lied to in order to have them seek to put financial pressure on me?
