Because freedom can't protect itself
OPEN LETTER TO MEMBERS OF THE U.S. SENATE
RE: OPPOSITION TO SENATE CONFIRMATION OF ERIC HOLDER AS ATTORNEY GENERAL OF DOJ BASED ON THE EVIDENCE OF HIS CRIMINAL OBSTRUCT-ION OF THE UNDERSIGN’S FEDERAL STATUTORY RIGHTS AS A FATHER AND ATTORNEY IN VIOLATION OF 18 U.S.C. §§ 241, 242, 1202, AND 1513.
I write as a US. citizen, as a Nam Vet who swore 44 years ago to defend the Constitution, as a former appointee in both the Carter and Reagan Administration, as a independent federal civil/human rights litigation attorney who for more than 32 years has successfully represented Hispanics against the malfeasance of DOJ,1 and a supporter of President-elect Obama, because irrespective of being a Republican, Democrat, or Independent the Senate must immediately act to restore the Rule of Law in the U.S. Department of Justice (See Adam Cohen, “Democratic Pressure on Obama to Restore the Rule of Law,” The New York Times, November 14, 2008).
For this reason I oppose the confirmation of Eric Holder as Attorney General because he is a defendant in a pending action under 18 U.S.C. § 3771 and civil RICO action to be filed in the U.S. District Court for D.C., based on the following evidence in the record that establishes that as a Beltway attorney/lobbyist he is the linchpin in a criminal conspiracy since 2003:
First, for five years after my Son was shanghaied to the Republic of Colombia in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1204, he did obstruct my Federal and Virginia statutory rights as a Father to compel DOJ to secure my right to international visitations with my U.S. citizen Son, pursuant to the provisions of the Hague Convention on Missing and Abducted Children (“Treaty”), and Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act VA Code § 20-124.1 et seq. (“UCCJEA”); and,
Second, in retaliation for my litigating to enforce my rights under Treaty and UCCJEA and petitioning Congress (See http://www.liamsdad.org/others/isidoro.shtml), in violation of 18 U.S.C. §§ 241, 242, and 1513, he conspired to punish, stigmatize, and deprive me of my right to employment as an attorney.2
Thus, my opposition to Eric Holder is a continuation of my petitions of 2005 to the Senate and House Judiciary Committees: (a) for an investigation of the collusion of the Federal Courts and DOJ by abuse of the Judicial Conference Act and the Rules Enabling Act to usurp the authority of Congress, the Constitutional mandates of checks and balances, as well as separation of power, and to deprive citizens of substantive rights; and, (b) my petition opposing the confirmation of Chief Justice John G. Roberts for his false statement to Congress aiding and abetting the obstruction of my right to compel DOJ to enforce my rights as a Father under the Treaty and UCCJEA (See http://www.home.earthlink.net/~isidoror/id6.html).
Consequently based on the above evidence of malfeasance the Senate must take the opportunity during the confirmation proceedings of not only Eric Holder, bu of all appointments to DOJ to hold hearings on past violations of the Rule of Law and Congressional mandates. For example, the Senate must inquire into the abuse of the Rules Enabling Act to use both summary judgement and Feldman abstention doctrine which has permitted State Court to deprive citizens of due process and parental rights under the Treaty, the surreal holdings of absolute Judicial and Executive Branch immunity for liability from suit for criminal and tortious acts which injure Fathers rights, the denial of RICO civil jury trial on claims of judicial and ministerial malfeasance, and the policy of denying access to an impartial court and the protection to victim of malfeasance pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3771, through secrete proceedings with DOJ by abuse of the Judicial Conference Act.3
This is because the lessons from history have shown that,
Once certain checks and balances are destroyed, and once certain institutions have been intimidated, the pressure that can turn an open society into a closed one-turn into direct assaults; at that point events tend to occur very rapidly, and a point comes at which there is no easy turning back to the way it used to be. Naomi Wolf, The End of America: Letter of Warning To A Young Patriot, p. 14, Chelsea Green Publishing, Vermont, 2007.4
Therefore, at this critical time for our Republic the Senate must restore the Rule of Law, as well as the integrity and public confidence in DOJ by assuring compliance with the words inscribed on the Robert F. Kennedy Justice Department Building: “No Free Government Can Survive That Is Not Based on The Supremacy of Law. Where Law ends, Tyranny Begins, Law Alone Can Give Us Freedom.”
For the foregoing reasons, I respectfully request that I have your support to be given an opportunity to testify and present evidence in opposition at the Senate confirmation hearing of Eric Holder.
Very truly yours,
Isidoro Rodriguez, Esq.

Lamagno and DOJ/DEA, 515 U.S. 417 (1995), the Legal Times confirmed that I was the only known U.S. license practitioner residing outside of the U.S. and litigating in Federal Courts on behalf of resident and nonresident Hispanics, see also Lopez v.

2In retaliation for filing Rodriguez et al., v. National center for Missing and exploited Children et al., Civil Action No. 030120, 2005 WL 736526 (D.C. Cir. March 31, 2005), to compel DOJ to secure visitation rights under the Treaty and UCCJEA, Eric Holder filed fraudulent bar complaints in 2003 with the Virginia State Bar Disciplinary Board (“VSBDB”). But, the VSBDB issued a void orders as a kangaroo court since the General Assembly granted the power to revoke an attorneys license only to courts-of-record and judges.

3The evidence confirms that in retaliation the Federal Courts have: (I) refused to empanel a Special Grand Jury and denied me access to an impartial court to compel DOJ to protect me as a victim of federal crimes as mandated by 18 U.S.C. § 3771(a), In re Isidoro Rodriguez US S Ct. No. 08-339, Writ denied on November 17, 2008 (Petitioner’s Exhibit 3); (II) deprived me of my right to a jury trial in the D.

Editor in Chief, Legal Times, et al., US S Ct.

Hon. Leroy Rountree Hassell, Sr. Chief Justice, Sup. Ct. of VA, et al., US S Ct. No. 08-574, Cert. denied on December 8, 2008.
3The dangers to our Republic and citizens by collusion of DOJ with the Federal Courts are real. ". . . the Courts in our judicial system have, in fact, become the lawmakers, when it is very clear . . . that our Constitution delegated that responsibility to the Congress of the United States and the State Legislatures . . . the legal profession has truly changed from being one of the premier professions in our society to a business where the number one objective or bottom line is financial profit . . .

IT’S NOT JUST IN GUANTANAMO. U.S. CITIZENS ARE BEING TORTURED AND RENDERED DESTITUTE AS A RESULT OF OFFICIALLY SANCTIONED “EXTRAJUDICIAL TARGETING” AND THE USE OF POTENTIALLY LETHAL “DIRECTED ENERGY WEAPONS” IN COMMUNITIES ACROSS AMERICA.
Please read this article by a mainstream journalist who has been a victim of this abuse for the past five years:
AMERICAN GESTAPO: ‘State-Supported Terrorism’ Targets U.S. Citizens
By VIC LIVINGSTON, former business reporter, Fox TV Phila., NY Daily News, Phila. Bulletin, St. Petersburg Times; former editor, CableVision, TV/Radio Age magazines
• Congress: probe “targeting” of American citizens by vigilantes hiding behind government-funded programs
• Due process denied, the Constitution violated by “extrajudicial” vigilante groups said to resemble KKK, Stasi and Nazi Gestapo
• A cause of the crisis in the mortgage and credit markets?
A virulent form of domestic terrorism is destroying the lives of citizens across America.
Victims of so-called organized “gang stalking” or “community stalking” charge that the rule of law has broken down nationwide at the hands of state-supported vigilantes — operating under the cover of citizen community policing and neighborhood watch corps and business-related anti-terrorism programs, supplemented by municipal workers and members of private and fraternal organizations.
A nationwide network comprised of these citizen groups, funded by elements of government at multiple levels, is the “extrajudicial” control mechanism that victims say is dispensing officially tolerated “vigilante justice.”
Many web sites in the U.S., Canada and other industrialized nations chronicle this horror. But victims say the tentacles of this domestic terrorism extend well beyond the so-called “street muscle” comprised of gang-stalking local vigilantes and self-styled soldiers of fortune.
Victims of this extrajudicial targeting and control network maintain that these vigilantes are operating as judge, jury and executioner — meting out various forms of harassment and abuse that they say amounts to physical torture and psychological harassment. Some victims have moved to other cities and towns to escape the persecution — but they say the vigilantism recurs in their new locale.
“It appears to be a nationwide network that attracts extremists as well as law and order types and people connected to public safety such as firefighters, utility workers, police auxiliaries, retired police and military officers, and even their family members, including children and teenagers,” says one victim, who says he has been “gang-stalked” for several years. “I doubt it could exist without some people in positions of power looking the other way.”
Even some regular, uniformed police are reported to have been intimidated by this network of extrajudicial control.
Victims say that they are physically harassed and relentlessly stalked, whether in vehicles or on foot; property is vandalized; privacy is invaded by way of pervasive surveillance; mail is intercepted, financial accounts and billing statements are altered and family finances decimated; and their physical well-being is compromised by hi-tech equipment such as “directed energy weapons” (D.E.W.) emitting silent bursts of radiation — lasers, microwaves, x-rays, sonic frequencies — that can stun, maim, induce illness or even kill.
A recent article on the Wired.com magazine “Danger Room” blog site discusses a court document said to indicate that the U.S. Secret Service is involved in the development of directed energy weapons technology. The article speculates that the agency may have deployed such devices in the course of its official duties.
“This is torture that’s happening right here, in American cities and towns,” says an alleged victim. “But it’s like pre- World War II Germany; people refuse to believe that such abuses could happen in a civilized society. But it is happening. And I’m convinced that some local and federal authorities not only have knowledge of this extra-legal targeting, but are providing funding and direction.
“I know the FBI knows about it, because I’ve been down there several times over the past two years to report it.” He says he knows of no formal investigation, despite his offers to cooperate.
“I’m not saying they know of the worst abuses, such as using microwaves on targeted persons to degrade their health and make it impossible for them to earn a living. But they must know that these citizen patrols are doing a lot more than just cruising around the neighborhood. ”
Citizens who have reported abuses say their complaints are typically ignored — or that authorities insinuate that their claims are figments of their imagination, or are a manifestation of a mental illness such as paranoia.
“That appears to be part of the M-O,” says one victim. “You haven’t done anything wrong, so they can’t charge you with a crime. So they attempt to make it look like you’re crazy. That’s how they marginalize people who don’t fit in with their world view.” The victim says it’s possible that local law enforcement has been “co-opted” by a variation of “the big lie.”
“Higher-ups come in and say, ‘We’ve identified this person as a threat.’ What are they going to do? They’re going to go with the program, especially since a lot of their funding comes from outside the community.”
This victim believes the vigilante network is a convenient way for those in power to dispense with persons or groups of people they simply don’t like or regard as undesirables, or whose political or social views do not hew to what they regard as the established order.
Victims also believe that a network of government programs and agencies works in tandem with the extra-legal vigilante system to destroy their financial security. They allege that the crisis in the mortgage and credit markets may have been worsened by these programs, which they say are sapping the financial well-being of individuals and families without benefit of the right of due process. Making available “easy credit” is a primary tool that puts “targeted individuals” on the road to financial ruin, victims maintain.
Some victims wonder whether these extrajudicial programs didn’t help spawn financial crises in the first place. “We haven’t had these kind of widespread financial woes for generations,” a gang-stalking victim said. “You have to wonder if these programs weren’t a blueprint for an ideologically-motivated purge.”
Some of the agencies looking into the mortgage and credit market problems may have had long-standing knowledge of these programs, according to victims, who are calling on Congress to investigate.
“The issue of state-supported vigilantism and extrajudicial control and punishment represents an assault on our judicial system that makes Watergate look like the third-rate burglary that it started out to be,” says the gang-stalking victim. “Since government agencies appear to be involved in funding these programs, it’s up to Congress to investigate, to use its powers of oversight to ensure that democracy and the rule of law prevails, and not the law of the jungle.”
The network of programs and policies that are allegedly circumventing the judicial system, violating constitutional rights and meting out vigilante justice, might collectively be termed the mechanics of personal destruction — a blueprint for political and social dominance crafted by those who would use the institutions of government as a tool of ideologically-driven social engineering.
This powerful apparatus appears to exist under the radar of most elected members of Congress and officers of the judicial system. They refuse to consider that these programs, over time, have adopted the of methodology the East German Stasi, the KKK of the old South, and the Gestapo of the Nazi Third Reich — and that the “targets” include American citizens tagged as political “dissidents.”
Victims say the rise of this “American Gestapo” represents the victory of neo-fascism over democracy — achieved under the guise of “national security” and “keeping America safe.” They say that in the face of mounting evidence of widespread abuses, those who identify themselves as liberals and progressives naively insist that “it can’t happen here.”
Victims charge that extrajudicial targeting of American citizens is destroying our democracy; much damage already has been done. They maintain that individuals and families are being irreparably harmed by what could they describe as “social genocide.” Some call it a “silent holocaust” due to its clandestine nature and the use of silent, invisible “directed energy” technology to achieve its horrific goals.
Below are links to the articles about this clear and present danger to our constitutional democracy and to the lives and livelihoods of its citizens. Victims urge lawmakers and congressional committees to start asking some tough questions, starting with the Department of Homeland Security:
“Mr. Chertoff, are you aware that many Americans believe they have been the victims of so-called community or gang stalking, possibly perpetrated by persons equipped and trained by federally funded volunteer programs under your charge? Have you heard of such reports, and are you investigating to ensure that these programs and their resources are not being misused?”
Victims believe this cancer on American society extends beyond a single cabinet department. But the curative process must begin with forces entrusted with the nation’s security before more Americans are damaged by this descent from the rule of law into home-grown fascism.
