"This is totally amazing!" -- Donald J. Trump.

The essay that appears below was defaced by Cuban-Americans in New Jersey as I posted a comment on the death of Fidel Castro. 

It is never certain whether I will be able to continue writing nor what damage may be done to these texts that are now circulating in many parts of the world. 

I will disregard all threats against me. 

No American officials, police, prosecutors, judges or journalists have responded to my communications at this time. It is unprofessional and unethical for law enforcement and other government officials, many of whom are lawyers, to fail to respond or even acknowledge communications on important issues that contain allegations and evidence of serious criminal conduct.

Fidel Castro & Ignacio Ramonet, My Life (New York: Scribner, 2007).

At a very dark time in my life I found myself riding an empty subway car during an off-hour jaunt with an unlikely fellow passenger. 

He was a young man exactly my age who, like me, had lost his father very early in life as a result of the identical historical events and tragedies which had largely determined his fate and mine together with the destinies of millions (if not billions) of other persons' lives in the world.

I also had the honor and pleasure on another occasion to meet that then still young man's mother who, despite her life-long beauty and extraordinary elegance as well as grace, was marked indelibly by the same terrible events in world history at whose center was the man who died on the day when I place these words on paper -- Fidel Castro.

The young man I met on the subway was John F. Kennedy, Jr. and his mother was, of course, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. 

We three and many others were placed -- involuntarily and unknowingly -- within concentric circles of historical obligation and entanglement by a notorious revolutionary in a tiny island nation that, at least for Fidel Castro's lifetime, was at the center of world events ... Cuba. ("Time to End the Embargo Against Cuba" and "The Winter of the Patriarch.")

Miami's wishes notwithstanding there is very little "indifference" to Fidel Castro's death. 

The tears and pain in Cuban faces -- often very young faces -- happens to be genuine while the hostility and vulgar celebration in Florida is also real. 

A man of strong convictions who leads a bloody revolution and fifty-year secret war against the world's reigning superpower (now in sharp decline) is unlikely to generate tepid responses at his death.

"What matters in life," Gore Vidal once said, "is not what others think of us, but what we think of them."

A typical and honest comment on Fidel's demise goes like this: 

"Mr. Castro was perhaps the most important leader to emerge from Latin America since the wars of independence in the early 19th century. He was decidedly the most influential shaper of Cuban history since his own hero, Jose Marti, struggled for Cuban independence in the late 19th century. Mr. Castro's [and the Cuban people's] revolution transformed Cuban society and had a longer-lasting impact throughout the region than that of any other 20th-century Latin American insurrection, with the possible exception of the 1910 Mexican Revolution." (NYT, 11-27-16, p. A12.)

President Xi of China said "Fidel Castro will live forever" and that Mr. Castro is "a symbol of revolution"; President Putin called Fidel "a great leader" and insisted that he had been "a true friend of Russia in good times and in the worst periods"; and President Holland of France spoke of Dr. Castro's unique historical importance and called on the U.S. to end the illegal embargo. 

Among many world leaders offering tributes to Fidel Castro upon the occasion of his death are Pierre Troudeau, various Latin American leaders -- including Ivo Morales of Bolivia -- and numerous Asian political leaders as well as Jacob Zuma of the ANC in South Africa along with most African presidents.  

Mr. Obama expressed, as I do, his condolences to the Cuban people even as I extend those condolences to Cuban-Americans who have suffered greatly as a result of the revolution who are now living in Miami or New Jersey and elsewhere in the world. 

Mr. Trump, alone among world leaders, insulted Fidel Castro (or his memory) by describing the fallen leader as a "brutal dictator" and the "oppressor of his people." 

I believe that insults should be reserved for the living who can respond to what we say. Anything else is cowardly, especially Bob Menendez-like behind-the-back smears, that Fidel (and I agree with him!) detested throughout his life.

Fidel's achievements, on the one hand, and whatever human rights criticisms are offered against him, on the other hand, are now for historians to assess and evaluate. 

I am told that Fidel and my father as well as others once fought-off a larger group of enemies with an exchange of gun fire. These two men -- who were once very close friends -- came to stand on different sides of Cuba's lengthy civil war, while never losing respect for one another, even as the ironies of history may well have placed Fidel Castro and me as well as many persons TODAY on the same side in the struggle for peace and a future of progress, cooperation, solidarity and mutual understanding between Americans and Cubans.

What better way to say farewell to Fidel Castro than with his own words in saying goodbye to Ernesto "Che" Guevara.

Guevara is alleged to have said on a memorable occasion to Fidel Castro, "this is called dialectics!"

" ... as fruits of that vigorous and profound intelligence, he left us an infinity of memories, an infinity of narratives that, without his work, without his efforts, might have been lost forever."

Fidel went on to say of Guevara:

"And if we speak of sorrow, we are saddened not only at having lost a man of action, we are saddened at having lost a man of exquisite human sensitivity, we are saddened at having lost such a mind."

Fidel Castro, "Che Guevara," in Revolution: Faces of Change (New York: Thunder's Mouth Press, 2000), p. 2.  

The election of Donald J. Trump to the Presidency of the United States of America comes as something of a shock to me.

Morning-after doubts about the reality of the society I inhabit and love (even if I often no longer recognize many aspects of that society) has not helped me to sort out my feelings. 

"Donald Trump's victory marks a thunderous repudiation of the status quo. The most powerful nation on earth has elected a real estate developer with no experience in government, a self-styled strongman contemptuous of allies, civil discourse and democratic convention. Barring a protean change of personality, Mr. Trump's victory appears to represent a challenge to the Western democratic model."

"A Repudiation of the Status Quo," (Editorial) Financial Times, November 9, 2016, p. 10. 

As I entered the subway this morning, I saw a large obscene message concerning Mr. Trump scrawled on the subway stairs.

A sign in Pennsylvania said: "Black lives don't matter and neither does [sic.] your votes."

I am sure that we may expect great violence and dissension in the weeks and months ahead. Protests have already spread throughout the country and to many parts of the world. 

Many persons already express feelings of distress and fear at the danger to themselves and family members posed by the Trump regime.

Women and persons of color will become more scarce in television news programs and government agencies. 

The "white anger" we hear so much about will be countered by the anger of others. 

America's continuing civil war in the courts, legislatures, and executive offices of the land may well worsen. 

There is widespread mortal terror in the world about what Mr. Trump will do to immigrants, women's rights, persons of color, and to the most unfortunate among us to say nothing of what will happen to the environment. 

Mr. Trump's prospective energy czar has expressed the opinion that "climate warming is a myth created by China."

Concentration camps with pleasant names ("Trump Hotels"?) are not unlikely. I am among those likely to be sent to such a prison.

"What, then, are the prospects for a Trump presidency? The optimistic view is that the mean-spirited, Muslim-baiting candidate will transform once inside the White House. Such a change looks improbable, at this stage. His temperament may not allow it. He can also argue, justifiably, that his tactics, however outrageous, won him the presidency. He had a chance to pivot toward a more responsible middle ground after the Republican convention and he chose not to do so."

There is only one conclusion from the point of view of European and other friends of America:

"Mr. Trump might nevertheless reflect that his victory does give him a second chance. He has to pick a team to carry out his agenda. He must work with Congress, notably Paul Ryan, the House Speaker, whom he has regularly derided. Mr. Trump prides himself on understanding the 'Art of the Deal.' He must realize that the business of government cannot be driven by personal feuds. Politics in a democracy is the art of compromise." (FT, 11-9-16, p. 10.) 

I said before the election (and I continue to believe) that Mr. Trump is unqualified and unfit to be President of the United States of America at this crucial and dangerous moment in U.S. history.

A majority of my fellow citizens agreed with me and voted against Citizen Trump in the general election. 

This popular majority made no difference to the electoral college victory which is entirely fair under our laws and well-established historical practices. 

What is most frightening about the Trump victory is that it is not fraudulent, but reflective of the powerful tendency towards fascism and cheap populism in the U.S. political system. 

Mr. Trump's electoral defeat of Secretary Clinton must be accepted and honored by all democrats (and Democrats) regardless of whether we agree with the so-called "choice" made under the relevant legal process. 

We see a nation in which white "blue collar" workers and rural families fear a "take-over" of "their country" that is "invaded" by persons from other places and "brown people" born here who, nevertheless, can never be considered "real Americans" by such people. 

The same white Americans -- for the most part -- are consumed by passionate hatred for the bien pensant media commentators who presume to instruct them on the state of the world while assuming a "holier-than-thou" political correctness that can only be described as moronic. 

Sadly, I tend to agree about the hypocrisy of such chi-chi people. 

Does this hostility to drinkers of designer water help to explain why 53% of white women voted for Trump? 

Donald J. Trump ("The Donald") has tapped into these seething hatreds that are found just under the surface of "our" bogus national identity and make-believe cordiality at the office or school, and/or in the public squares of the nation -- hatreds which often conflict with people's class interests. 

It is tragic that the socialist idea of "class interests" cannot be allowed by the notorious 1% of the population to take root in America.

Hypocrisy has come to define America's claim to be a "gorgeous mosaic" and a "multicultural paradise." 

We are a tribalized and balkanized society where persons of different races are at one another's throats because the sense of a common interest and national identity has been lost or no longer exists (if it ever did exist). 

"You get yours; I'll get mine." This pleasant sentiment has become a national slogan. 

Mr. Trump may well discover that it is one thing to fuel the fires of sectarian hatred and quite another to put them out when you suddenly require cooperation from political adversaries -- like Mexicans (or all Latinos) and women -- in order for your policies to be effective. 

Walls to keep people out may end by imprisoning all of us within our hatreds and fears producing lethal consequences for an irreversibly globalized economy and the geopolitical reality of festering conflicts in the Middle East and elsewhere that escape all attempts at geographical and cultural limitations by any single nation. 

The world is a more complex place than Mr. Trump's rhetoric and intellect can possibly comprehend. 

We are heading for a catastrophe as a people. 

The world will share that catastrophe with us and (perhaps) the sufferings of others will be far greater than our own because of Mr. Trump's obvious incompetence and narcissism. 

We must face the fact that a nation capable of electing an African-American Chief Executive is still incapable of accepting that a woman -- who is clearly the more competent, intelligent, educated and prepared person for a position of great responsibility -- should earn the opportunity to serve in that position even when a white male desires the job. 

America has some growing-up to do on gender issues and equality for women. 

Terror at these developments has already produced a plunge in the stock markets and value of the dollar. 

Uncertainty and instability in financial markets will increase in the short term because of Mr. Trump's victory that may well become America's defeat. 

More economic harm is to come because of what is already being called America's version of "brexit."

The faces of persons in Mr. Trump's home city reflect this unprecedented fear and defensiveness, especially among the elderly and persons of color, young women and the poor. 

Increased military preparations have been detected on the borders of many nations. (Please see the quote by Iran's leader found in the same issue of the Financial Times whose editorial I have used extensively in this essay.) 

There are already threats from numerous terror groups (domestic and international) that must be taken seriously because they are quite real. 

Do we feel "safer" with Mr. Trump as our next president?

Hillary Clinton was never more magnificent than in her elegant and brief concession speech. 

Mrs. Clinton explained eloquently that women must not allow themselves to believe that the glass ceiling will never be broken nor should we accept that women are sub-humans and/or second class citizens without the EQUAL right to aspire to (and/or to hold) the highest offices in the land. 

Mrs. Clinton further noted that no nation can live at peace without allowing for the development of the talents of every person EQUALLY with the talents of the most fortunate and privileged members of society. 

Mrs. Clinton concluded with great sadness, dignity, and poise that America is a nation of laws in which the will of the people must be honored and the rule of law accepted in the absence of fraud. I concur.  

We must hope that Mr. Trump will be successful for all Americans. 

We must also facilitate the peaceful transition of power from one administration to the next without abandoning our never-ending struggle and hope for freedom, justice, and the EQUAL protection of the laws. 

I congratulate Republicans on this electoral victory.

Another essay with one hundred sources attached detailing the putrid corruption and incompetence of New Jersey's failed courts and government will be added below as I await a response from the U.S. Justice Department and F.B.I. to my communications.

As the world darkens with president-elect Trump's arrival in Washington, D.C. and upon the world stage, I cannot know whether political interference will result in undermining or shutting-down a Justice Department investigation into matters raised by me. It is also never certain, as I keep emphasizing, whether I will be able to continue writing online. 

I have yet to hear from any person (or media outlet) contacted in the U.S. about these matters. 

The essay appearing below will be sent to Interpol along with other recipients. 

American businesses and concerns continue to be damaged, internationally, merely on the basis of deepening fears of a Trump administration. Economic harm has slowed down, but is continuing to be seen on a global level.

Attempts to print this text resulted in the scrambling of the sentences and paragraphs due to computer crime. 

A copy of the damaged printed text along with further indications of the computer crimes to which these writings are subjected will be sent to the U.S. Justice Department with the final version of the essay.

"NEWARK -- A federal grand jury convicted two former allies of Gov. Chris Christie on Friday of all charges stemming from a bizarre scheme to close access lanes at the George Washington Bridge to punish a New Jersey mayor who declined to endorse the governor's reelection." 


The crucial consideration in light of recent events in Mr. Trump's transition team that has decided to exclude Christopher Christie from power is emphasized, unknowingly, in the Times article: 

"Though only the two defendants, Bridget Anne Kelly and Bill Baroni, were tried in the so-called Bridgegate case, the scandal surrounding the lane closings in September, 2013 left Mr. Christie deeply wounded. It helped cripple his presidential candidacy this year and tarnished his reputation as a key surrogate in Donald J. trump's presidential campaign."

The reason for the exclusion of Mr. Christie from the prospective Trump presidential administration is not primarily personal hatreds -- nor hostility to Mr. Christie based on his prosecution as U.S. Attorney of any particular defendant -- but a surprisingly sensible concern on the part of Mr. Trump's advisers to avoid a politician associated with public lies, corruption, the willing sacrifice of underlings to the authorities in order to escape his own liability, to say nothing of Mr. Christie's affiliation with America's most failed jurisdiction.

The stench of corruption now clings to anyone or anything from New Jersey like white on rice.

This is further evidence that Mr. Christie's political career -- at least at this time -- appears to be over. 

Governor Christie's dismissal also suggests a wise concern to exclude someone from a new administration who can only bring trouble in his wake. 

The Trump White House is already embattled and would prefer to wage its own struggles rather to have new wars to contend with as a result of a single appointee's "baggage."

Mr. Christie's handling of Bridgegate indicates that he will not be a very good leader in a crisis. It is likely that Mr. Christie will merely compound difficult matters by lying and covering-up evidence of a crisis. ("New Jersey's Office of Attorney Ethics" then "John McGill, Esq., the OAE, and New Jersey Corruption" and "New Jersey's 'Ethical' Legal System.") 

New Jersey's now well-known methods of dealing (or not dealing) with political or legal troubles are not wanted by Mr. Trump.

It will be a very long time (thankfully) before any politician or judge from the Garden State is appointed to a position of national responsibility:


"Testimony at the trial indicated that Mr. Christie knew about the lane closings as they took place causing major traffic jams at Fort Lee, New Jersey, over five days, and that he was clearly involved in covering up the plot [emphasis added] even as he continued to insist -- as he did again after the verdict was announced -- that he knew nothing about it until months after it was over."

To allow Mr. Christie to join the Trump administration is to invite a Watergate-like political scandal six months down the road. 

If Mr. Christie was comfortable lying to reporters and residents of New Jersey there is little doubt that he would lie to Mr. Trump and America if necessary. 

Mr. Christie is an "ethical member of the New Jersey Bar Association."

I am surprised and gratified to find Mr. Trump making the right decision for himself and for America on this difficult issue. According to the far from liberal New York Post. 

"Tensions had been building for weeks between the two men, with some Trump insiders questioning Christie's loyalty in the last month of the campaign, when it looked like Trump would lose." 

I agree with the Trump team's conclusion regarding Mr. Christie. 

"Some close to Trump [Giuliani?] regarded the New Jersey governor [as] a 'stupid thug who really needed to go,' the transition team told the Post."

The situation of American women prisoners is an issue that the U.S. has claimed to deal with at the international level, but the nation has failed to establish that improvements have been made. Most of the women currently incarcerated in America may be released without any increased risk to the public.

Dear Mr. Ziff:

This shall serve to acknowledge your correspondence and return of my previous communication to your office with your letter dated October 19, 2016.

A copy of your most recent letter with my response and also with a copy of the envelope in which your "missive" arrived as well as my most recent online essay with attachments will be forwarded to the recipients indicated below.

I am returning your grievance form and the very interesting information brochure.

I regret that I cannot pursue a grievance against your office by bringing what is essentially a complaint before the same office that I struggle against.

The Office of Attorney Ethics (OAE) in New Jersey is not and cannot be impartial in any matters concerning me in relation to their now proven misconduct against me. 

The "good faith" required by law in an evaluation of a grievance is beyond the OAE with regard to me or any aspects of my life in New Jersey and, evidently, even beyond that unfortunate state.

Nothing prevents the OAE from initiating proceedings for unethical conduct against any one of the dozens of members of the bar -- including public officials or persons who have become judges -- whose nefarious or criminal conduct is detailed in the public media sources cited and/or quoted in my texts. 

This is to say nothing of the members of the bar found to be lying in public statements and/or under oath quoted in published sources in my texts.

I believe and will continue to say, publicly, that the OAE is corrupt and inept; that New Jersey's legal profession, judiciary, and politicians are the most unethical and criminal (with many exceptions) in the nation. 

These allegations by me will continue to be supported by objective sources and well-established facts in my published writings.

You, Mr. Ziff, state in your letter that I "make a number of allegations against a multitude of people without support."

If you had examined the attachments to my communications you would have found "numerous" examples of computer crime committed against my blogs and computers emanating from your government agency's computers and/or from the actions of persons affiliated with your office. 

Please refer to my "Open Letter to Cyrus Vance, Jr., Esq." and the items sent to Mr. Vance which, I am sure, have been shown to you.

John McGill, Esq. who, at the time of his actions was a member of your office and of the N.J. Bar Association, submitted fraudulent testimony from a witness he knew to be lying for money in proceedings brought against me by the OAE. This fact has been known in Trenton for some time. 

In addition to this serious criminal and unethical action, Mr. McGill denied me discoverable material, also illegally, and lied about that fact as well as many other ethics infractions and violations of law for which he is responsible. 

John McGill, Esq., illegally, closed a bank account held by me and lied about doing so after slandering me to former friends and family members as well as former clients in efforts to solicit grievances against me. 

Among the N.J. attorneys committing crimes against me at the invitation of the OAE are: Gilberto Garcia, Esq.; Mary Anne Kriko, Esq.; Edgar Navarete, Esq. (who may also have "dipped" into his trust account); Estela De La Cruz, Esq (now a judge, allegedly, whose ostensible fondness for prostitutes results in the commission of criminal offenses); Alex Booth, Esq.; Howard Brownstein, Esq.; Nydia Hernandez, Esq. and Mr. McGill's "lackey" Lourdes Santiago, Esq. together with others offered no choice about what they were required to do or say against me.

Many persons were lied to (or threatened) by these lawyers and other persons to act against me. 

The unethical and criminal actions of these attorneys are certainly within your jurisdiction and do not require the filing of a grievance by me.

New Jersey's Supreme Court is well aware of these crimes and the continuing danger posed by this public farce created by your office. 

Whoever wrote the letter appearing over the alleged signature of William B. Ziff, Esq. is probably an unsuccessful participant in previous online debates against me and an accomplice to the commission of the crimes listed above. 

I believe the true author of what purports to be Mr. Ziff's letter of October 19, 2016 is a woman using many names online, including the name "Jill Ketchum."

There is a U.S. Justice Department criminal investigation of these matters so that letters such as Mr. Ziff's recent "communication" may be perceived as interference with such an investigation. 

I will not be intimidated nor discouraged in pursuing my remedies in these matters however long it may take to reach a federal courtroom.

If the OAE cannot tell the truth about who is actually writing their own letters, or why they are doing so, I cannot expect the agency to admit the truth about anything else.

Very truly yours,

Juan Galis-Menendez

October 15, 2016 at 11:52 A.M. There are aspects of my New Jersey experience that defy rational description: 

Compare Emma G. Fitzimmons & Patrick McGeehan, "Neglect Brings Steep Decline For N.J. Transit," The New York Times, October 14, 2016, p. A1 with Eli Rosenberg, "Misconduct Complaint Against Christie Has Merit, Judge Says," The New York Times, October 14, 2016 at p. A22.

The first article confirms many assertions made in earlier posts by me (as well as many others in New Jersey) that theft and incompetence have created a public peril for users of N.J. Transit (also for N.J. hospitals, airports, bridges and more), including endangering many New Yorkers. 

The second piece suggests that the state's governor not just the senior senator and hundreds of other lawyers, judges, or "public officials" may be corrupt and subject to indictment. 

Mr. Menendez and Mr. Christie are said to be distinguished and "ethical" members of the New Jersey Bar Association. ("New Jersey's 'Ethical' Legal System" and "New Jersey's Office of Attorney Ethics.")   

October 12, 2016 at 2:01 p.m. Due to insertions of "errors" overnight I will be making corrections today. I will have to delay the continuing posting of sources attached to the text. 

I cannot say how many other essays have been damaged by the latest attacks against these blogs taking place, evidently, with the cooperation of New Jersey authorities. 

For some reason my phone was inoperative this morning. I will try to correct the damage done to my works.

As of October 3, 2016 no response to my communications has been received from any U.S. police, prosecutors, judges or politicians. 

I have not yet received a communication of any kind from any public interest group contacted by me nor from a media outlet located in or controlled by entities in the United States of America.

I have reason to believe that non-U.S. entities are increasingly interested in me and advocating for justice in my matters. 

I am deeply grateful for all efforts on my behalf. 

I continue to anticipate and expect a response from the U.S. Justice Department. Specifically, I expect to hear from Preet Bharara, Esq., U.S. Attorney in New York. 

I can only write or access the Internet for 45 minutes per business day. 

Deformations of this text and alterations in the size of letters are always expected. 

Any home computer or laptop that I seek to use in order to write online will be destroyed or rendered inoperative. No doubt this computer crime is the result of Mr. Pizzuro's efforts. Lulu? ("How censorship works in America" and "Censorship and Cruelty in New Jersey.")

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights that has been accepted by the United States of America and which is incorporated into U.S. law by way of the U.S. Code and also federal case law contains a number of guaranteed rights that have been (and continue to be) violated in my situation that is unfolding, publicly, before an international audience that contains many distinguished attorneys and jurists. 

I will enumerate some of the rights violated before the eyes of this audience. 

In addition to these rights violations American Constitutional protections have been and continue to be ignored by New Jersey authorities (thus far) with impunity:

ARTICLE 3: Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of the person.

ARTICLE 4: No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slavery trade shall be prohibited in all their forms.

ARTICLE 5: No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhumane or degrading treatment or punishment.

ARTICLE 6: Everyone has the right to recognition everywhere as a PERSON before the law.

Please see "What is it like to be plagiarized" and "'Brideshead Revisited': A Movie Review" then "An Open Letter to My Torturers in New Jersey Terry Tuchin and Diana Lisa Riccioli" and "An Open Letter to Cyrus Vance, Jr., Esq."

To be recognized as a person before the law is to receive the dignity and courtesy of a timely response or reply rather than silence from the mechanisms of the state in connection with public communication of criminal violations of the laws and of one's human rights as well as the rights of others. 

ARTICLE 7: All are equal before the law and are entitled without any discrimination to equal protection of the law. 

This includes Eric Garner, Freddy Gray, and every other African-American defendant in the U.S. legal system.

All are entitled to equal protection against discrimination in violation of this Declaration and against incitement to such discrimination.

Failures to respond to communications from U.S. citizens (and others) on an international level requesting the truth from New Jersey government and/or courts violates the provisions of Articles 7 and 8:

ARTICLE 8: Everyone has the right to an effective remedy by the competent national tribunals for acts violating the fundamental right guaranteed to him [or her] by the Constitution or by law.

ARTICLE 10: Everyone is entitled in full equality to a fair and public hearing by an independent and IMPARTIAL tribunal, in the determination of his rights and obligations and of any criminal charge against him.

I have never been charged with a crime. There are no judgments against me of which I am aware. Also, the New Jersey Supreme Court's one paragraph decision in my matter which has been posted online by the OAE is now, admittedly, based on fraudulent testimony and perjury that has been the subject of lies and a cover-up in Trenton. 

Perhaps the intention of those posting this paragraph from the Atlantic Reporter (not the official reporter for the N.J. Supreme Court) was to embarrass me, but it merely has the effect of humiliating the tribunal deciding a matter that concerns me on the basis of criminal frauds and threats of innocent persons generated by its own Office of Attorney Ethics (OAE). ("New Jersey's 'Ethical' Legal System.")

According to that soiled tribunal's own previous decisions, the outcome in my matters has been rendered void ab initio and subject to dismissal as the product of a criminal fraud. I am awaiting that dismissal and appropriate apologies. 

I am confident that this, in fact, will be the judgment at least of the U.S. federal courts. In any case, the prior and now bogus N.J. Supreme Court decision is irrelevant to the U.S. Justice Department's criminal prosecution of computer criminals and other culprits in these matters.

ARTICLE 12: No one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his PRIVACY, family, home or correspondence, nor to attacks upon his honour [sic.] and reputation. Everyone has the right to the protection of the law against such interference or attack.

ARTICLE 18: Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in PUBLIC or private, to manifest his religion or beliefs in teaching, practice, worship or observance.

ARTICLE 19: Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through ANY media and regardless of frontiers.

S.P. Sullivan, "Massive Child Porn Crackdown Nets 40 Arrests," The Star-Ledger, August 19, 2016, p. 1. 

"Forty men hailing from every corner of New Jersey have been charged in a statewide crackdown on the distribution of child pornography, authorities announced Thursday." 

The difficulty with this investigation and the numerous limitations on the well-intentioned effort to control the phenomenon of child-prostitution and -pornography in New Jersey is that the focus is on street-level users and distribution of this material. ("New Jersey's Child Abuse Epidemic" and "New Jersey is America's Child Porn Capitol.")

Every single county in the state and nearly all ethnic groups are represented among those arrested, but the forces generating this material with their connections to police, prosecutors, politicians and judges in N.J. were left "unexplored" and "untargeted" by the Trenton-based investigation, I believe, for obvious reasons. ("New Jersey Superior Court Judge is a Child Molester" and "Neil M. Cohen, Esq. and Conduct Unbecoming to the Legislature in New Jersey" then "New Jersey Rabbi Faces Child Porn Charges" and "New Jersey Lesbian Sends Nude Photos to Minor" and "Diana's Friend Goes to Prison.")

New Jersey's politicians and corrupt law enforcement agents wish to be seen as "doing something" about the disgusting and blatant (as well as out-of-control) child abuse phenomenon in the Garden State. ("Another New Jersey Child Sex Scandal" and "New Jersey Rabbi Charged With Child Abuse.")

The same politicians and police, prosecutors, judges (and others) do not wish to have anyone engaging in public scrutiny of their activities and relationships to the lucrative industry generating billions of dollars in earnings by trading in this filth. ("New Jersey is the Home of Child Molesters" and "New Jersey Welcomes Child Molesters.")

This corrupt industry is among the few businesses thriving amidst the rotting corpses under the Turnpike and chemically-sprayed cranberry fields as well as medical waste-saturated beaches that declare "We're New Jersey!" to the state's friendly residents and kindly visitors from other places. ("Menendez Consorts With Underage Prostitutes" and "Edward M. De Sear, Esq. and New Jersey's Filth" then "New Jersey's Filth, Failures, and Flaws.") 

Arresting consumers and low-level distributors of this repellent material will only result in the replacement of these people within a week. ("New Jersey's Politically-Connected Lawyers On the Tit" and "New Jersey's Political and Judicial Whores" then "New Jersey's Feces-Covered Supreme Court.")

It should be noted that among the arrested persons were a number of white collar professionals who no doubt contributed to the "higher end" work in the "industry." ("Law and Ethics in the Soprano State" and "Mafia Influence in New Jersey Courts and Politics.")

In fairness, Italian organized crime families rarely get involved in the child-prostitution and child-pornography industries because the penalties and corresponding risks are not to their liking nor do they approve of the business on moral grounds. Charging a fee for looking the other way is not beneath the mafia's dignity:

" ... 'No matter where you live in the state of New Jersey, this is happening there,' said State Police Lt. Pizzuro, [Mr. Pizzuro has been linked to the Genovese crime family, allegedly,] the commander [sic.] of the state's regional Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, in an interview at the force's technology center in Hamilton. 'This is pervasive.' ..."

Mr. Pizzuro may now be under investigation (by the feds) for targeting my blogs for computer attacks. Many mysterious phone calls to my home seem to have come from these "officers." ("Christie and Mastro Accuse each Other of Lying" and "Organized Crime Group in New Jersey's State Police" then "KKK Police Shocker in New Jersey" and "Driving While Black in New Jersey.")

Allegations of racism against Mr. Pizzuro are vehemently denied. ("Albert Florence and New Jersey's Racism.")

These arrests may sound good to the uninitiated, but are really a distraction from the extent of the problem of corruption, incompetence, organized crime influence to say nothing of child abuse in New Jersey. ("More Mafia Arrests in New Jersey and Anne Milgram is Clueless" and "Cement is Gold in New Jersey.")

Child sexual abuse is a multi-billion dollar industry in New Jersey. ("New Jersey's Child Abuse Epidemic" and "Another Global Child Porn Network in New Jersey" then "14 Year-Old Girl Goes For $500 in Union City, New Jersey.")

"Many of the seized computers had more than 1,000 pornographic images of children stashed on their hard drives, authorities said. One allegedly held 76,000 files."

This amount of material is barely enough to keep Bob Menendez "entertained" over a long weekend, allegedly, to say nothing of "Little Debbie" Poritz or Neil M. Cohen, Esq., but it is sufficient to suggest a professional organization selling this stuff. Probably there are hundreds of groups (networks) like this in New Jersey. ("Trenton's Nasty Lesbian Love-Fest!" and "Diana's Friend Goes to Prison" then "New Jersey Rabbi Faces Child Porn Charges.")

"All were charged with possession of child pornography and most also face charges of distribution for making the files available to others via peer-to-peer networks, authorities said. Under state law, those found to have distributed more than 25 pornographic images of children face mandatory five-year prison sentences authorities said."

Col. Rick Fuentes and Christopher Porrino, Esq., State Police Commander and N.J. Attorney General, respectively, were awoken from their dogmatic slumbers to comment on these developments together with allegations that placing child porn on computers is a time-tested New Jersey political tactic to "get rid of" opponents, like creating a traffic jam for a local mayor who refuses to obey Trenton's instructions. ("Law and Ethics in the Soprano State" and "New Jersey Lawyers' Ethics Farce" then "Another Global Child Porn Ring in New Jersey" and "Christie and Mastro Accuse Each Other of Lying.")

Neither of these "distinguished" gentlemen (I use the word "gentlemen" loosely), Mr. Pizzuro nor Mr. Porrino, were willing to answer questions about me. 

"I don't know nothing." Mr. Porrino was quoted as saying. I believe him. 

Mr. Pizzuro has chosen to remain silent on the advice of his attorney. ("More Mafia Influence in New Jersey.") 

"The accused, all men, [so far!] range in age from 20 to 72-years-old [sic.] and include a former Pennsylvania school teacher, construction workers, white-collar professionals and a custodian for the Long Branch school district." ("New Jersey's Child Abuse Epidemic.")

The bastards. ..." Mr. Trump clearly sees himself as called by history to rescue the nation, joining the others on Mt. Rushmore while earning yet another six-foot portrait, and -- best of all perhaps! -- making a few dollars while he's at it. The terms used by experts are: pathological narcissism, delusions of grandeur, excessive self-love, and far worse. Is this man fit to be President of the United States of America? Will Mr. Trump form coalitions with opponents and obtain cooperation from those he insults?

Furthermore, a second indictment against Senator Menendez may be pending in which events described in these blogs could provide a factual basis for the charges.

Over 300 photos of persons attached to my name have appeared online, none of the persons depicted happens to be me. One of the photographs is of Leonardo Di Caprio. I am truly flattered.

Wildstein, Baroni, Christie and others involved in this sordid mess, allegedly, are "ethical" New Jersey lawyers. The analogy to my situation is obvious and compelling. Persons -- like Mr. Rabner? -- are still lying and covering-up in an effort to escape liability. The danger to others means nothing to these people. You decide who is unethical.

I concur with this assessment. Worse, and far more criminal, is the possible reduction of Mr. Trump's tax bill from $30 million to $5 million in exchange for a possible future appointment for Mr. Christie in an increasingly unlikely Trump presidential administration and/or for some cash under the table to say nothing of "favors" for Exxon in accepting an absurdly low settlement figure for their irreversible damage to New Jersey's cancerous environment no doubt in exchange for political contributions to Republicans.

Is this "hearing" a media event Mr. Santoro could afford to ignore? Or are New Jersey officials seriously concerned about what needs to happen at N.J. Transit? The only inference to draw from Mr. Santoro's absence is that these proceedings are a farce to lead voters to believe that "something is being done" about a real danger at N.J.

Here is the crucial point: "In 2013 our new administration broke the stranglehold that the Zisa family held on Hackensack for decades. Since then we have closed a huge budget gap and delivered the first city tax rate cut in 10 years. It's a shame that the legacy of the Zisa political machine still looms over the taxpayers."

Chris Christie to conduct a state-financed investigation [or to represent the governor?] of the scandal over the lane closings at the George Washington Bridge should refund $7.8 million to New Jersey taxpayers." Failure to refund such illicit fees resulting from a conflict of interest is tantamount to theft and should be grounds for disbarment even if the OAE is bribed or intimidated to look the other way.
