Why Protect Whistleblowers?

(Originally posted on Daily Kos.)

In the weeks leading up to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, FBI officials denied a New York agent’s request to start looking for a known al Qaeda operative who had entered the United States, in what the 9/11 Commission would later call a clear misunderstanding of the law (PDF). The agent sent an angry e-mail warning that “someday someone will die.” At the same time an FBI supervisor in Minneapolis, stymied from pursuing a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court order to search Zacharias Moussaoui’s computer by headquarters officials who later admitted to that they did not know the legal standard necessary to obtain one, shouted that he was trying “to stop someone from taking a plane and crashing it into the World Trade Center.”

These agents clearly knew that gross mismanagement in the FBI’s counterterrorism program posed a substantial threat to public safety, but neither formalized his complaint or pushed it up the chain of command. Perhaps, like one third of those polled in a 1993 Merit Systems Protection Board study (PDF) of the federal workforce who did not report illegal or wasteful activities they had seen on the job, they feared retaliation. And not without good cause, since the administrative process Congress created to protect some federal employees in the Whistleblower Protection Act are completely ineffective, as a number of whistleblowers and whistleblower advocates testified in the House of Representatives last month. Worse yet, employees of the FBI, CIA and other intelligence agencies are exempt from even these meager protections.

After 9/1,1 President Bush called on FBI, CIA and other intelligence agents to report any breakdowns in national security and FBI Director Robert Mueller vowed to protect Bureau whistleblowers. But the few FBI employees who answered this call — myself, Sibel Edmonds (PDF), Jane Turner (PDF), Robert Wright, John Roberts (PDF), and Bassem Youssef (PDF) — were not protected. It should be no surprise then that a Department of Justice Inspector General survey (PDF) released in May found that 42 percent of FBI agents don’t report all of the misconduct they see on the job, and 18 percent never report any.

The myriad scandals involving the FBI, CIA and NSA from spying on political activists, to warrantless wiretapping, to torture, more than demonstrate the need for more whistleblowers in the intelligence community. It’s even been reported that the intelligence agencies sometimes lie to Congress about their activities, but Congress has been too slow to protect the brave agents within these agencies that might actually tell the truth. The ACLU vigorously supports meaningful legal protections for all whistleblowers, and particularly for federal employees and contractors within the law enforcement and intelligence communities, where abuse and misconduct can have the most direct consequences to our liberty and security.

With renewed calls for greater accountability over the intelligence community, there is a new effort in Congress to protect whistleblowers. A House bill, H.R. 1507, would finally provide real protections to all federal employees and contractors — including intelligence agents — who are willing to speak out when waste, fraud or abuse of authority endanger our security or violate the law, by providing independent due process guaranteed by the right to jury trials once the administrative process is exhausted. But as important as what this bill does for national security whistleblowers is what it does not do to national security: H.R. 1507 does not authorize intelligence community employees to leak classified information to the media or to any other person who does not have the appropriate security clearances. In fact, by providing safe avenues for agency employees to report waste, fraud and abuse to the appropriate authorities and to Congress, there will be less of a need to anonymously leak information in order to have serious problems addressed.

But there is work yet to do. The Senate whistleblower bill, S. 372, while making some meaningful improvement to the current administrative process, does not provide federal whistleblowers the right to take their cases to a jury and the bill does not extend any protections to FBI, CIA or other intelligence agency employees.

Congress needs access to information about mismanagement and misconduct within the intelligence community, both classified and unclassified, in order to perform its constitutional duty to check abuses of power and ensure Americans' security is being adequately protected. But Congress cannot perform effective oversight unless informed federal employees and contractors are willing to tell the truth about what is happening within these agencies. And it is simply unfair to expect them to tell the truth if they know it will cost them their jobs.

The Senate is holding a hearing on its bill tomorrow. Let your voice be heard. Tell your Senator to extend meaningful protection to the workforce that is charged with protecting us all by granting all federal employees full and independent due process rights when they blow the whistle during government investigations or refuse to violate the law, enforced through jury trials in federal court once administrative measures are exhausted, and “full circuit” review. Perhaps the next time FBI or CIA agents see breakdowns in terrorism investigations, they will have the confidence to report these problems to Congress before another disaster happens.

Protect the rig...

Mr. John Craig is a 79 year old African American honorably discharged as an Army Veteran and has owned a C&D Construction and Demolition landfill for over 40 years. He is a prostate cancer survivor and a current patient receiving glaucoma treatment due to partial blindness in one eye. Mr. Craig lives in Columbus, Ohio. Mr. Craig contacted President Barack Obama and Senior Advisor to the President, Valerie Jarrett to assign a federal probe and investigation in Columbus, Ohio on the charges alleged.

The charges are pretty serious. He claims the following: Intergovernmental corruption, and threats made to him by Franklin County Officials in Columbus, Ohio; local Caucasion owned landfill companies who are partnered with county, state, and local governmental officials in the administration and control of rules, regulations, oversight, contract awards, and monitoring of landfill business while receiving federal funds and posing a conflict of interest; failure to properly handle and manage federal/state/and local environmental protection grants/funds which have been used to eliminate Mr. Craig as a minority owned contractor with historic evidence of disparate treatment; continuous pattern of historical retaliation after he reported in a recent town hall meeting, that Minorities in Columbus, Ohio have been purposely excluded from bidding on county, state and city governmental demolition projects due to patterns of unbid or individual agreements for sole sourced contracts that exceed $25,000.00; a settlement bribe offered to Mr. Craig by county officials to pay them $10,000.00 for reissuance of his applied license with the stipulation that the county prosecutor would find a judge to sign the paperwork with an appearance of a fine; Mr. Craig's business customers over the years have been threatened by County officials with citations and removal of their licenses if they used Mr. Craig's landfill. Third parties informed Mr. Craig, that former Prosecutor Joe Durham (who now serves as a county advisor) admitted using "character assassination strategies" before the Franklin County Board of Health Commissioners to frame and deny him the opportunity to continue landfill operation and use. A recent demand from Local county governmental officials, i.e. County Prosecutor, Municipal Environmental Judge Harland Hale, and County Board of Health members who plan to sell Mr. Craig's commercial property (also known as a Riverfront Treasure) with the stipulation that none of his family members be able to purchase nor own the land; and Mr. Craig's recent arrest on April 27th, and later house arrest with ankle monitor which is used to keep him from going to his landfill as outsiders come to survey the land. An assigned Probation Officer told Mr. Craig that he's been hearing that the only reason he had this ankle monitor on is because "he's a black man and also to keep him out of his landfill where he was authorized to run a transfer station" which was later recanted according to Mr. Craig by County officials.

There has been no offer of any technical assistance or support from county officials who receive federal and state dollars to assist small businesses on environmental issues.

On Friday May 22, Mr. John E. Craig was released from the Ohio State University Hospital East. He had an Intracardiac electrophysiology study (EPS) which is a test that allows doctors to determine the details of abnormal heartbeats, or arrhythmias and further weigh out if he has had a stroke to determine if a pace maker was recommended due to his recent dizzy spell which I am sure is related to the stress associated with the way he has been treated by the court. The doctors had ordered that Mr. Craig would need an MRI to further investigate whether a stroke had taken place and the possible source of his recent medical issues. Due to the ankle monitor on his leg, the MRI was not done since the hospital advised that it would have literally blown up the MRI machine and killed Mr. John E. Craig had he been placed in the MRI machine for this much needed test. Judge Harland Hale would not authorize the removal on his ankle monitor and said it was not needed since he felt it was not a matter of life or death. Mr. Craig stated that this Judge has repeatedly called him a liar and told witnesses that he did not like him and on one occasion, hated Mr. Craig pre and post sentencing.

The Ohio Code of Judicial Conduct establishes standards for the ethical conduct of judges and judicial candidates. The code is not intended as an exhaustive guide for the conduct of judges and judicial candidates, who are governed in their judicial and personal conduct by general ethical standards as well as by the code. The code is intended, however, to provide guidance and assist judges in maintaining the highest standards of judicial and personal conduct and to provide a basis for regulating their conduct through disciplinary agencies. Talk about violating the ethical oath of Canons that a judge takes (he clearly violated Canons 1.0, 2.2, 2.3, 2.6, 2.7, 2.9 and 2.10 and 3)! It is alleged that this Judge personally contacted Head Nurse (Nora Weigerg) at OSU East during his recent hospitalization, who told the Judge there was nothing wrong with Mr. Craig. She is currently under investigation as Mr. Craig, nor the family authorized release of his medical condition. It was later confirmed that Mr. Craig in fact did have a major medical issue that needs to be dealt with. This is a 79 year old man that has served his country and honorably discharged and poses no threat to society, nor is he a flight risk, yet they felt it necessary to put shackles on his feet. Once again, this is another form of continued harassment prior to his scheduled court date. Mr. Craig is denied the ability to shop, bank, visit family, friends, and denied access to business property. Mr. Craig often cries at the thought of how he was treated and sprayed like a dog on weekend visits when the county officials had him placed in weekend jails years ago because of unwarranted environmental charges that no one seems to have records of these violations amongst the county officials.

On May 28, 2009 @ 1:30 pm there was an unprecedented pre-sentencing environmental landfill matter, the “site visit” was described as an “off the record” unofficial site visit. Location: Craig Landfill – 1600 Deckenbach, Columbus, Ohio 43223. Around 2:00 pm., Judge Harland Hale arrived. Other attendees included the Franklin County Board of Health Inspectors, Jeff Gross, Jeff Gibbs, County Prosecutor, Heather Robinson, Assistant County Prosecutor, Probation Officer, Don Witt, and at least 3 arresting Sheriffs. Defense Attorney, Adrian Frederick represented for Mr. John Craig. Family members, son of defendant, Steve Craig and wife Mrs. Marian Craig were present.

Judge Harland Hale: Elected official demonstrated abuse of power and threatened to arrest with no probable cause.

At approximately 2:15 p.m., Steven L. Craig, son of Mr. John Craig snapped a photograph of the group of county officials who were descending down the hill at the rear of 1600 Deckenbach Rd. When the group came within arm’s length of where he was standing, he then extended his right hand to greet Judge Harland. Judge Harland returned the handshake. While shaking his hand, the attorney for Mr. John Craig was introducing him at the same time, as Mr. John Craig’s son. The Judge said “taking pictures of me is the best way of getting on my bad side…and you do not want to get of my bad side, do you?” he then is said to have quoted, “no sir.” After that point, the Judge looked to his right where the county prosecutor was positioned. The Judge made a grimacing face and clinched his teeth. The Judge then looked at him and said, “you are just like your no- good incorrigible daddy – do you do your daddy that way? The Judge said “you can answer.” Steven Craig then paused and replied “no sir.” The Judge then said to him, “I ought to have you arrested and lock you up until all of this is over with… and don’t take anymore pictures.” The Judge then yelled out, “when I am down here, I am the captain of this ship!” The Judge then said to the defense counsel “Matter of fact, get this guy out of here, I don’t want him walking through with us.” The attorney then directed Mr. Craig's son to go sit in the car. While still standing, the Judge asks the attorney, “Why are we here? This is a waste of time, my time, your time and everyone’s time! The Judge turned to walk toward his vehicle and the attorney then convinced the Judge to begin the walk through. The walk through was then completed.

At the conclusion of the walk through the attorney and others in attendance commented the Judge’s behavior was out of order and unnecessary. Mr. Craig’s son was threatened by the Judge’s behavior and a hostile environment was very evident. Given’s the judge’s attitude and disdain for Mr. John Craig, he is not appropriate for any judicial determination on Mr. Craig's case. Mr. John Craig was not present due to house arrest. The family is outraged and plans to elevate this behavior to much higher sources. While at the same time on this same date, Mr. Craig received anonymous phone calls of gun shots from an unknown source. This too has been reported in the past without remedy. Mr. Craig has received guns shots off and on for close to three years.

Proper confidence in the judiciary is eroded by irresponsible conduct exhibited by Judge Harland Hale and other governmental officials. We'll hear more about this hot case! The Justice Department will be notified. Mr. and Mrs. Craig are no strangers to Civil Rights cases as Columbus, Ohioans know they have spoken out on many injustices in Columbus, Ohio for the past 40 years and values the core tenets of education while financing the education of his children and some of his grandchildren to attend public and private institutions of higher learning, i.e., Ohio State University, Florida A. & M., Berklee College of Music, Capital University, Ohio Dominican College, Oral Roberts University, Spelman College and Central Michigan University; and Mr. Craig has two daughters completing doctoral degrees in 2009 and 2010. The Craig’s have also spoken to county, city and local government officials concerning House Bill 592. As we celebrate the 55th Anniversary of Brown vs. Brown, we need to confront any and all forms of hypocrisy, dishonesty, and address discrimination on all fronts!

Write to the White House, Attn: President Barack Obama and Vice President, Joe Biden, Congressman Patrick J. Tiberi, Congresswoman Mary Jo Kilroy, Governor Strickland, Honorable George Voinovich, Chester Jourdan, Executive Director of MORPC, Stacy Brayboy, Dick Gregory, Al Sharpton, Michael Baisden, U.S. Supreme Court of Ohio, Congressman Zack Space, Office of Disciplinary Counsel, Civic and other community leaders about this shameful and egregious behavior demonstrated by Judge Harland Hale and demand the removal of the ankle monitor on Mr. Craig now. It could be your loved ones or children next. Remember these very public officials at election time.

Why isn’t the ACLU calling for COINTELPRO hearings? For the life of me, I can’t understand it. Given the abuses of the past eight years, wouldn’t it seem likely that individual Americans have been targeted (by the thousands or tens of thousands), especially given what we know about the proliferation of fusion centers, warrantless surveillance and the like, coupled the history of COINTELPRO. (And then there's the NSA database "Main Core".)

Many Americans are complaining about surveillance, job interference, surreptitious home-entries, phone-taps, vandalism and theft of personal property, and defamation campaigns, but their complaints are seemingly falling on deaf ears.

When is someone going to wake up to the fact that average, law-abiding American citizens are being victimized, as they simply try (and want) to live their lives? Ever think that it might happen to one of your children or grandchildren? Well, it could, because it’s happening all across this country, as I write. It’s happening to law-abiding, patriotic people and no one seems to give a damn. Rather, when good folks complain, they’re written off as paranoid or delusional.

During the Nixon years, Martha Mitchell was dubbed “delusional” by those who wanted her to be silenced. Perhaps someone should have listened but, hey, Americans only seem to react when challenged with a crisis. This will most certainly become one, if no one moves forward and attempts to figure out what our most secretive agencies are doing. Why should these agencies be able to hide behind the "state secrets" privilege and act with impunity. These agencies are not above the law but, they continue to act as if they are.

What about the Marine from Camp Pendleton who received files from the CIA which he then passed to an LA Deputy -- something to do with counter-terrorism efforts? He's going to prison, I believe, but what the hell is going on? I sure know this: something is and someone with the power and connections needs to follow up on some of these leads...

We need a few good whistleblowers -- we need a few more good men like Thomas Tamm.

To: ACLU,

You seem to be a protectionist just like the dishonest at NASA and up the ladder.

Sentient, intelligent life has been found on all of our planets, yet NASA has refused to relay that information to the general public. The Mer Rover program has killed the tinies sentient human life on Mars, but no one cares, not even the ACLU. Keeping existence of extraterrestrials is not a National Security Issue. It is witholding growth knowledge from the American Public. Yet noone will stand up for the deaths on Mars. Every law enforcement agency has turned down my evidence as if they believe extraterrestrial secrecy is a national security issue. I stand today with over 2 million views of my revealing video's that show that sentient extraterrestrial life on all planets, even some who live in the upper atmosphere of Neptune. Where is the Constitutional out cry? Where is the honesty in government? We easily see the corruption in government by this unlawful neglect in reporting.

Un-America

Under the tentacles of the punitive and judgmental Bush regime, our tolerance for cruelty and selfishness grew exponentially. Our Constitution has been turned into a puree of abandoned quotes with a crucifix on top; cliff-noted to suit the needs of the Religious Right. This distortion of our rights has enabled us to become very un-American; the manifestation of the bully nations we used to criticize. Unfortunately today’s technology has made this easier to perpetuate and there is no crisis of conscience when the “righteous” are prescribing punishment via their laptops and cell phones.

Under the topic “Mobbing,” there are a variety of stories on the Internet about cowardly group behavior, bullying behavior, where mobs of people verbally attack public figures or even private citizens. They went after poor Michael Jackson even after his death. Their callous jokes and glib remarks showed a terrible disregard for a talented and innovative artist.

Mobbing is nothing new and throughout history there have been self-righteous mobs that go after individuals. Couple our current judgmental populace with today’s technology and you get hoards of people, from all walks of life, even the so-called pious, vilifying and passing judgment on complete strangers in Internet chat rooms. Oddly in the land of liberty, this has become very popular and entire communities are constructed around mobbing. Nothing brings people together like a good old-fashioned witch-hunt.

Like the KKK’s penchant for disguise, the mobber’s identities remain cloaked in anonymity as they destroy their victims from the privacy of their PCs or cell phones. How easy to slander and threaten others when there is little chance of getting caught. They think up cutesy monikers, such as Frank Sinatra’s Reanimated Corpse or Nonymouse and flatter themselves that they are writers, exercising Freedom of Speech or vigilantes punishing an evil person.

Not only do the Blog Mobs rip the victim to shreds on the Internet, some will post all of the victim’s personal information online and then try to rally the other bloggers to track/stalk, and report the victim’s every move to the group. (Organized stalking/tracking—Google: Texas Fred and see what he instigates against supposed sex offenders.)

Stalking and especially group stalking is a horrendous civil rights abuse—it violates a citizen’s right to privacy as laid out in the constitution. Also, slander and inciting hatred towards a citizen violates even more constitutional rights. Oddly some former military and so-called Christians are involved in this animal behavior.

Some of these bully groups try to damage every facet of the person’s life by contacting their employer, neighbors and family with false reports that the person is crazy, a racist, pedophile, thief, sexual deviant, under investigation, etc. The accusations the Blog Mobs use to rally the masses are generally so reprehensible and embarrassing to discuss that the accused may never even hear what they are being accused of. Also, if you ask one of the bloggers if they have actually asked the accused if it is true, they just say, “Oh, they’ll just deny it anyway.” Ah, due process of law in action.

Some blog mobs have even used set-ups, complete with photo shoots to make the victim seem like an undesirable. This is later posted on You Tube or My Space or any number of sites. The slander creates conflicts where the victim constantly has to defend themselves and thus create more enemies. I know from personal experience about the set ups. In 2006, I would walk through the park on my way home from work. On two occasions, I saw a middle-aged African American man running ahead in the distance and looking back at me occasionally with a look of fear on his face. Then I’d see some twenty-something with their little camera phone, filming the scene. Scenes like this happened a variety of times and I had no idea what was going on until I came across other articles, that shed light on the set ups, which are referred to as “street theater.” There would also be set ups in the workplace where one coworker would try to manipulate trouble between myself and another colleague. I stopped taking the bait, finally in 2007, but the attempts are still made anyway. (This is a facet of Workplace Mobbing.)

This cowardly behavior of Mobbing has been popularized and encouraged by mainstream media. In 2007 on Channel Five News, I heard Jean Enerson rally the troops, by saying, “Bloggers tracking pedophiles,” after a story about Jack McClellan, a person who was suspected of being a possible pedophile. Every week the reporters would proudly claim that this man had been driven out of another community. (America—Home of the brave.) I have no idea why this person was appearing almost weekly on the news and why he was perceived as such a threat as he hadn’t been convicted of anything. I do know that Texas Fred (who appeared on FOX news for his vigilante work) was encouraging blog mobs to stalk this man and run him out of various towns. I have little sympathy for real pedophiles, however as one that has been falsely accused of this egregious act on a site called www.rottenneighbor.com I say get some real evidence before you begin to stalk and torture people. Also, do some fact checking Reporters and let the accused defend himself. Don’t just take sound bytes from this guy that make him look bonkers.

Since anyone can be accused of being a pedophile and the community reacts with absolutely no proof, innocent Teachers and other’s lives are being destroyed every day. I see these pumped up reports on the news almost weekly. Where is our Due Process? Where are the true Journalists that know that News needs to be fact-based and fact checked and not have a lead sentence such as, “A Harper Valley Gymnastics Teacher is being accused of Child Rape.” Then they show the person’s house and neighborhood. Of course the person’s neighbors will recognize the house and this person is instantly stigmatized.

A 2006 International Times article, illustrates the frenzy of an online mob and the damage they can do to an innocent person. According to the article, the victim was first accused of being responsible for his ex-girlfriend’s suicide. Then the stories began to build. The bloggers alleged she was pregnant and he was trying to force her to abort his child. The mob went crazy, posting all of his personal information on the internet, calling his workplace with demands that the company fire him, forcing him out of his college where he had night classes. Next the mob was reporting his every move--even what he was wearing on specific days. None of the gossip had any basis in fact, but Vigilante Bloggers don’t need any facts. From: The International Herald Times, In Seoul Korea, Online Rumors Can Hit Hard. By Sang-Hun Choe (This type of mob behavior is called Organized Stalking.)

As mentioned above, I have had my own experience with internet smears and organized stalking. In December 2007, I found my full name on a website named www.rottenneighbor.com, which is supposedly a site designed to identify desirable or undesirable neighbors and neighborhoods. These anonymous posts claimed that I was everything from a redneck prostitute to a child molester. They ranged from character assassination to the ridiculous, “She will steal your husband.” I contacted the Webmaster from the site and by the next day all the posts were removed, but the webmaster never responded to my emails. (I began contacting State legal agencies and Human Rights Commissions, but they offered no help.)

In May 2008, I put up a few flyers in my neighborhood offering a reward for information about the Internet smears. A few days later, I received a call from Channel Five Reporter Chris Daniels asking for a comment about the reward and new slander posted on The Stranger Newspaper’s SLOG. I had no idea about this new twist and was shocked when I found 48 postings accusing me of being crazy and a crack whore among other things. (These blogs had been posted shortly after I had hung my flyers and even a photo of one of my flyers was on the site.) I emailed Dan Savage, since I’d met him when I interviewed for a job there in 2002. Tim Keck the Publisher (or is that just Unseen Hand Productions that controls this media) responded instead and said that he didn’t see anything wrong with the posts. When I checked the SLOG again, the more serious postings, that I was a crack whore and the one suggesting that I be “put down,” had been removed and replaced with the statement, “way too mean.” I had printed the originals however.

Next I discovered I was on a Watch List when I was detained at the U.S./Canadian border in 2007. Why? I don’t know exactly and every FOIA request I submit is denied or dismissed. John C. Inglis from the NSA went so far as to write, “While your appeal clearly states your concern of not knowing whether or not NSA maintains intelligence information on you, I must emphasize that NSA can neither confirm nor deny alleged intelligence activities or targets due to the classified nature of this agency’s signals intelligence mission.“ If my name can appear on a Watch List and since I have done nothing to deserve such a thing, then anyone can be vilified and harassed in this manner.

The CIA has always used slander campaigns against individuals they consider a threat—Activists, writers—so-called Enemy Combatants—Google: Abby Hoffman and Cointelpro. General Motors did the same thing to Ralph Nader—Watch: Ralph Nader: An Unreasonable Man. Now it appears they can even do it to nobodys like me. I guess anyone that stands up or stands out could be a target. Am I just an example to scare the other nobodys?

When anonymous bloggers (who could be NSA or LEIU) can so easily manipulate the public into going after innocent people, then that public can also be manipulated into a totalitarian system--A system where they do not question authority for fear of reprisal. If the government vilifies and isolates all the activists, then the weak will follow the crowd.

Sadly it’s not just the Religious Right that is involved in this (although these are the people pulling the strings.). Since self-righteousness has replaced common sense, Democrats will vilify other Democrats (Just look how divided the party was in 2004.). Scholars go after each other (Look at the high percentage of Workplace Mobbing in Academia). Feminists attack other feminists and the rightwing fascists just sit back and laugh at all the mayhem they have caused. They create chaos to implement the destruction of our constitution, our unions and especially our unity. The 1960’s battles were won by many groups pulling together and we are currently very divided. This type of isolation only endangers us. We need to put aside our differences and search for our commonalities.

Throughout the ages Jewish and Roma people, activists, scholars, etc. have been vilified so terribly that entire communities turned on them. Some were driven out of cities, placed into camps and millions were murdered. During the Spanish Inquisition, Village Healers were burned as witches. During the Cultural Revolution, students were manipulated into going after the Scholars because of Mao’s wish to purge any intellectual threat. Stalin did much the same. During WWII, American citizens of Japanese descent were vilified and placed into camps; their homes and goods confiscated. Currently, in the “land of the Free,” liberal Teachers, Writers, Activists and Whistleblowers are treated as the new threat and can be placed on Watch Lists and harassed by their communities.

As a child I began to stand up early on. I was restricted by a very oppressive religious group and not by my own choosing. I even had to attend their school, which was poorly staffed and Math and Science were almost completely ignored as there was an emphasis on Religious themes. My self-esteem was constantly being attacked by my mother, stepfather and his two older boys, yet I stood up as much as a little child could. This so enraged my mother that she would actually try to beat me into submission. She broke a hairbrush on me once and our small, Dachshund/Chihuahua-mix went after her. Then she turned on the dog. I was very proud of our dog that day. The smallest member of the family had stood up to the big bully.

An agency jurisdiction as enjoin from the senate for 6 months to years is person, as non-regulatory.

The list of agencies are non-jurisdictional to Merit Staffing Protection Boards and or non respondents as Opt out Objector's. It appears that their prejudice attorney's had not created the opt out objector's list certified to facilitate a regulation hence the elongated inquiry.

What I understand is that the Solicitor’s General’s and the Attorney General’s or either part received an offense jurisdiction from the court: and the title law to offense jurisdiction was not enforced- no mitigation communication. Technically, if either part received documents concerning it is classified as enforcement. The matter may remain unresolved for lack of referendums’ in the functioning organization communication structure. Jurisdiction is not a right of action (deemed illegal). If the organization is over lapping into another term within the structure where there still is a jurisdiction and you find that the in-house attorney’s are plugging along as defense alibi after court hearing. It is non-mitigation resolve.
