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

No response has yet been received 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 public officials and judges. 

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 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? ("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.")     

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 mature and competent or professional a leader of his nation than either Mr. Putin or Mr. Xi as leaders of their nations. It is difficult for intelligent persons to disagree with this assessment of Mr. 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.)

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.

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 that is -- or may be -- "bias-proof" will summarily dismiss the government's case and send home his carefully chosen 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.")

(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.

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.) 

"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 result because all legal proceedings were "contaminated" by racism -- 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 forestall 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:

"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? ("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?] 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?")

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.

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.)

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 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.")

There are several other such lawsuits and criminal investigations still pending before New Jersey courts in several counties that concern DECADES of child abuse. Mr. Corcoran is only one of hundreds of persons recently convicted in New Jersey in child abuse cases. Videos of the rapes of very young children in New Jersey are available for purchase online from the sort of criminals who pay off local political and legal or police officials to obtain protection. "Have you no shame Mr. Rabner?") 

Herb Jackson, "Report: Feds May Tap N.J. Attorney: Member of Trump Transition Team in Line to be Prosecutor," The Record, August 8, 2017, p. A3. (Geoffrey Berman, Esq. of Princeton was listed as a potential U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, allegedly, depending on Mr. Berman's promise to avoid investigations of white Republican persons and all Jews from New Jersey as well as requiring Mr. Berman to kiss President Trump's ring. Loyalty is highly prized by this president. I wonder why they screwed Mr. Kim? Is Mr. Kim a Democrat?) 

Joe Malinconico, "Cop Says He Was Punished For Reporting His Superior," The Record, August 8, 2017, p. L3. (Once again, despite whistle blower protection laws, an official or N.J. police officer faces reprisals for doing exactly what was legally and ethically required. New Jersey's culture of cover-ups and lies as well as hypocrisy about legality is on display. It is time for the OAE to "fess up" in this matter. "New Jersey's 'Ethical' Legal System" and "New Jersey's Office of Attorney Ethics.") 

Tony Gicos, "Clifton Police: Search Continues for Man Who Grabbed Teenage Girl Last Year," The Record, August 8, 2017, p. L3. (An upstanding member of the Clifton community likes to go around grabbing teenage girls by their private parts. Could it be Mr. Trump? Was there evidence of a tic-tac at the scene? Perhaps Mr. Menendez is back to his old ways: "Menendez Consorts With Underage Prostitutes" and "Senator Bob, the Babe, and the Big Bucks.") 

Joe Malinconico, "Audit Finds City Overtime Irregularities: Nearly 18,0000 Hours [of Overtime] Were Paid to 80 Paterson Workers Without Authorization," The Record, August 9, 2017, p. L1. (Over 22,000 hours -- so far -- of these payments that are worth hundreds of thousands of dollars are found to have been made to "persons" who may not be entitled to collect such payments if these "persons" even exist. How much of this money has gone to Joey Torres through hidden accounts -- or to other political  croneys -- is difficult to tell. "New Jersey is the Home of the Living Dead.")  

Monsy Alvarado, "Officials Launch 2nd Probe of Hudson Jail: Freeholders Appoint Panel to Examine Deaths," The Record, August 11, 2017, p. A1. (In addition to several mysterious deaths of inmates hanging themselves after being beaten to death by guards there are vanishing funds at the Hudson County jail. Luckily, I am sure that Bob Menendez and Big Nicky Sacco will look into the problem. The troubles at the Hudson County jail are nothing new.) 

Charles Stile, "Christie Tries to Gloss Over the Neglect of Infrastructure," The Record, May 4, 2017, p. A1. ("The governor who put his own presidency ambitions ahead of the needs of rail riders [tried to avoid responsibility for] overworked trains, frequent breakdowns, and now months, possibly decades[,] of delays ... as repairs jam up the tracks." New Jersey rail passengers are fed up. Developments in August of 2017 are worsening a crisis that makes the New York subway system seem like Eurorail by comparison.) 

Payton Guion & Steph Sikes, "6 More Lakewood Couples Face Welfare Fraud Charges," The Record, July 7, 2017, p. A4. (The "Kosher Welfare Queens" scandal in New Jersey continues to grow as we head for September's forthcoming arraignments of these defendants along with a few more who are about to be arrested, allegedly, in Hudson County: Samuel Serhofer, 45, and his wife, Esther, were charged with stealing $72,685 of Medicaid benefits in a single year; Yisroel Merkin, 37, and his wife, Rachel, stole $70,557.01 from Medicaid, SNAP, and HEAP benefits; another $74,960 were added to the sums previously stolen by Eliezer Soroztkin, 33, and his wife, Elkie, 31, who is said to be a wonderful cook; Jerome Menschel, 33, and Mottel Friedman, 30, scooped up another $63,839 in Medicaid funds and SNAP benefits on false pretenses (but whose counting? -- actually, the feds are counting!); Tzvi Braun, 35, and Estee Braun, 34, face charges that they stole $62,746.74; Nelhama [?] Hirschman, 27, illegally collected -- or stole -- $53,418.39. Barry Albin has explained, allegedly, that these people and the additional defendants to whom these arrests have led the authorities, were simply "nice people who made a mistake" like Mr. Wildstein and Debbie Poritz.)  

Mark Di Ionno, "Time for Honest Conversations About Lakewood," The Star-Ledger, August 10, 2017; posted August 10, 2017 at 8:25 A.M. (There are " ... sweeping statements that welfare fraud was rampant in town. Or that unlicensed religious marriages allowed Haredi women to take 'single mother' charity care. And that Jews don't pay taxes because of religious exemptions." These accusations are mild compared to the level of hostility and hatred directed against Jews in New Jersey and New York recently. 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.) 

Scott Fallon, "Christie Administration Made No Contingency Plans With President's EPA Cuts On the Table," The Record, May 4, 2017, p. A3. (New Jersey's Department of Environmental Protection has been greeted by cuts at the federal level of $2.6 BILLION. New Jersey residents -- who are already victims of some of the highest rates of cancer and toxic environmental diseases in the nation -- will be left essentially totally unprotected from environmental hazards. At the same time as this news arises there are reports that Exxon in New Jersey under Mr. Tillerson's years of command of the corporation is under investigation not only for environmental damage, but also for public corruption to cover-up the damage to the environment.)  

R.J. Rico, Michael Kunzelman, Melina Deslatte, "Lawyer: Cop's Threat Preceded Shooting: Details emerge in La. killing after U.S. says no charges to be filed," The Record, May 4, 2017, p. A6. (A white police officer, allegedly, "accidentally" shot an African-American young man after being seen on video -- only moments before the shooting -- pointing a gun at the man's head and threatening to shoot him, I guess, "accidentally." The victim "Na'Quincy Pelison" was not committing a crime. The FBI and Justice Department will not bring charges against the officer, but may bring suit against the victim's family for violating the police officer's civil rights by complaining about the murder of their son.) 

Robert Phar & Thomas Kaplan, "Letting Health Law 'Implode' Would Make Premiums Soar," The New York Times, August 16, 2017, p. A1. (The loss of Obamacare will leave millions without insurance protection that will eventually result in an added burden for all tax payers who will have to pay for emergency care that will have to be provided to the uninsured in emergency rooms throughout the country.) 

Nicolas Katyhan, "Cop's Suit Alleges Political Retaliation," The Record, May 4, 2017, p. 1L. (Sergeant Ray Bordamonte was punished for doing what was legally and ethically required by testifying against public officials, including Bob Menendez's alleged croney, Richard Diaz -- Paterson's former "Public Safety Director" -- who can only be described as a disaster on the same level as Joey Torres.) 

Charlie Savage, "The Justice Department Seeks Data From a Site for Dissent," The New York Times, August 16, 2017, p. A11. ("The Justice Department is trying to force an Internet hosting company to turn over information about everyone who visited a website used to organize protests during President Trump's inauguration, setting off a new fight over surveillance and privacy limits [online]." Efforts by the D.O.J. are focused exclusively on Left-wing groups as protests are planned this week in multiple cities in response to the Charlottsville events and Mr. Trump's confused statements concerning "white supremacists." Internet communications among students and others planning to express First Amendment rights by protesting against fascism are now monitored by feds keeping track of these dangerous young people in order to protect the fascists. "Whatever.")

"Making a Spectacle of Himself," (Editorial) The New York Times, August 16, 2017, p. A22. ("Given one more chance to condemn white supremacists, Mr. Trump takes up their talking points." The startling reactions to the president's comments from around the world seem to confirm the loss of influence and prestige for the United States of America under the current administration. Ms. Merkel reminded audiences that Germany had some experience with views such as those seen in Charlottsville as she condemned the attacks on innocent protesters and expressed indirect criticisms of the U.S. president's failure to do so. These comments were echoed by many other leaders around the world.) 

Owen Proctor, "$25,000 Reward for Tips on Corruption [in N.J.]: Bloomfield Councilman ADMITS Bribery Scheme," The Record, May 16, 2017, p. L3. (Private groups in August, 2017 are planning to create a reward system to encourage reporting of the massive corruption throughout New Jersey as well as to counter threats and behind-the-back efforts against whistle blowers. "Elias Chalet's guilty plea on Tuesday originated with a business owner reporting a bribery-scheme, according to state attorney general [sic.] Christopher S. Porrino." Mr. Chalet solicited $15,000 from a local business man. This type of incident is still "business as usual" in New Jersey. Many judges are much the same as the corrupt political hacks because they are often the identical political hacks who are, eventually, appointed to the bench by their friends for a small fee. I was told that one way to "get rid" of a political office holder and get your LOYAL friend in the job is to appoint the obsolete person to a judgeship, especially if you can extract money from the appointee for doing so. This explains a lot. "New Jersey's Failed Judiciary" and "New Jersey's Judges Disgrace America.")  

Nicolas Pugliese, "Status of Furloughed Workers Lost Pay is Uncertain," The Record, July 7, 2017, p. A1. (State workers who were forced to stay home during the three-day N.J. government shut-down may have lost pay for those days forever. N.J. will not make up the money they lost because of the ego contest between Mr. Christie and Mr. Prieto. Luckily, bonuses will be paid once again to the large number of deceased employees of the Trenton government. Evidently, New Jersey is still the home of the living dead. Many of these demised individuals vote in N.J. elections -- often more than once! -- and tend to favor the pricey "upgrades" at the State House. "Christie and Torres in New Trouble.")
