El Paso – Vote Patricia Chew Court 1

Patricia Chew is the incumbent Probate Judge of El Paso Court No. 1 being challenged by Darron Powell, who’s qualifications are ????? Powell truly  bears no resemblance to Judge Chew, nor does he resemble any democrat I’ve ever met. Call me cynical but based upon my experience in Texas Statutory Probate Courts, whether in Denton, Harris County, Brazoria County, Galveston County, acrRoss estate, is my impression that most of our probate judges are Republican. El Paso is definitely democratic but I was shocked to see Powell on the Democratic ticket. Typically your values match ticket which is why I have […]

Stealth Euthanasia ~ Tell Tale signs. Don’t deceive yourself on the dignity thing

Advertising and marketing con artists have really sunk to an all time low in trying to sell us this BS idea that Euthanasia, where the Dr. helps to murder you –is cloaked in dignity. If you believe that, no amount of reason will change it, but consider this experience of Mary because I have been through it with clients 3 times and every time the guardians say “swallowing problem” “aspiration pneumonia” and then they starve your loved one to death and it’s awful. From Mary: I watched an old woman die of hunger and thirst. She had Alzheimer’s, this old […]

Dig a pit for someone else and fall into it!!!!

He who digs a pit will find his own grave there January 28, 2018 by Robert Franklin, Esq, Member, National Board of Directors, National Parents Organization Many times we’ve stared aghast at the astonishing fees accumulated by lawyers in child custody cases. Just two weeks ago I reported on an Australian judge who excoriated lawyers for making custody and parenting time cases an excuse to protract litigation and increase fees beyond anything remotely necessary.  He cited one case that saw a litigant pay $860,000 Australian. The reason lawyers can get away with such outrageous behavior is that child custody cases […]

Pigs officially flying…. I wasn’t bluffing after all…

There are time in life when we feel powerless to change anything a if the powers that be are just too big! And Then suddenly, you look up into the sky and see that pigs actually fly and miracles do happen!!!!!  Don’t stop believing because we are finite but God is not!!! Last session 8 brave witnesses stayed up until 1am in the Texas Senate and caught them red handed and then it appeared that all was lost until we just chose to walk in faith with a bit of bluffing and a bit of muscle behind it and now, […]

The Deadman’s Rule

Courtesy of Judge Bonnie Sudderth; It is said that dead men tell no tales. But in Texas, sometimes they do. It all depends on whether the Dead Man’s Rule applies. Although reference to the Dead Man’s Statute is still fairly common in legal practice, the former Article 3716 Dead Man’s Statute, which was enacted in the 1870’s was actually repealed by the Texas Legislature in the early 1980’s. The current law is found in Texas Rules of Evidence 601(b), and is now called the Dead Man’s Rule: “Dead Man Rule” in Civil Actions: In civil actions by or against executors, administrators, […]

Sometimes David actually beats Goliath!

Hospice, Agenda 21 and redistribution of assets?

Theorists argue that Agenda 21, a 23-year-old non-binding UN resolution that suggests ways for governments and NGOs to promote sustainable development, is the linchpin in a plot to subjugate humanity under an eco-totalitarian regime. One of its most outspoken critics, American Policy Center president Tom DeWeese, has described the resolution as “a new kind of tyranny that, if not stopped, will surely lead us to a new Dark Ages of pain and misery yet unknown to mankind”.APC is on the political fringes, but anti-Agenda 21 sentiment is moving into the political mainstream. Criticism of the resolution extended to the Republican […]

The Probate Mafia’s Secret Illegal Bill & Effect on open government

Attached is a copy of a letter written to stop the Legislature from passing House Bill 1438, which we are challenging in Federal Court based upon Judge Guy Herman’s long-standing practice of violating the separation of powers clause of the Texas Constitution, as well as the unconstitutionality of the entire Trojan horse. It was the Trojan horse the probate cabal hoped to get past everyone without detection to benefit lawyers, not the ward or families. Judge Herman has used Elliot Naishtat for years to funnel bills he clearly had a hand in writing for the benefit of the statutory probate […]

Deception of “Protection” in Guardianship!!

Ginger Franklin was just shy of her 50th birthday when she fell down the stairs of her Nashville-area townhouse in 2008. A marketing representative for Sam’s Club, she was taken to the hospital with a severe brain injury. Doctors weren’t sure if she would survive.   Since Franklin had not designated anyone to make decisions for her if she became incapacitated, and with no immediate family, her aunt was advised to petition the court for a guardian. The guardian, a lawyer appointed by the county, placed her in a group home for seriously mentally ill adults. But Franklin was not […]

Abuse plagues system of court appointed guardians $$$$

Champion for the Elderly!

MARIE-THERESE CONNOLLY is using the prosecutorial skill she honed fighting nursing home fraud to add dimensions to the public’s awareness of the widespread problem of elder abuse, including highlighting the costs to society of financial, physical and psychological mistreatment of older adults. “Elder abuse is ubiquitous,” Ms. Connolly, 54, a former Justice Department prosecutor, said. “But we are not connecting the dots and realizing that the economic costs are high. Few people realize the huge implications for Medicare, Medicaid and family programs.” She has been working — writing federal legislation, testifying and prosecuting cases — for years, but a grant […]

Guardianship Abuse – Protectors continue to fail seniors with horrific victimization

Here’s what you can do now to avoid becoming a victim later. Ann Brenoff If you are elderly and haven’t legally arranged for someone to take care of things for you should you become incapacitated, a state court can give a total stranger complete control over your life savings, your home and even which medicines you are given. It’s a system that has led to a cottage industry of paid professional guardians managing the affairs of our elderly ― a role traditionally performed by a spouse, adult children or other close relatives or friends. And sadly it has often been […]

Guardianship Solution? Don’t talk to Strangers

    What was the one thing you remember being told as a child to keep you safe from those who would seek to harm you? Don’t talk to strangers!  Yes, that needs to be our need AD CAMPAIGN for the ELDERLY!  IF FAMILIES ARE INVOLVED THEY CAN WATCH OVER THEIR PARENTS AND GRANDPARENTS and tell them how to stay safe. this one is very simple! DO NOT TALK TO STRANGERS. DO NOT LET THEM KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT YOURSELF BECAUSE THERE ARE PSYCHOPATHS SCOUTING HOSPITALS AND LONELY ELDERLY LOOKING FOR A DOOR IN. ONCE THEY FIND IT, YOU’RE DONE. DON’T […]

The Estates Code is Unconstitutional unless you prefer to be chattel

As the Senate decides whether to grant wards of the State of Texas due process rights–crumbs off of the master’s table–I sit disgusted that these men and women are our leaders, wondering how we managed to elect such reprobate “non-representing” representatives. I am also beside myself contemplating how grossly incompetent the lawyers must be to draft legislation so clearly illegal, it’s not worth the paper it is written on. Does anyone know the Constitution, Bill of Rights, or even the meaning of the word “inalienable?” Inalienable means non-transferrable, yet Judge Guy Herman, Chief ProbateJudge of Texas, will tell you that […]

Guardians of Death ~ Skeletons in the Closet

  Luke 8:17 For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open. Matt 10:26; “But don’t be afraid of those who threaten you. For the time is coming when everything that is covered will be revealed, and all that is secret will be made known to all. And my favorite of all time that is so appropriate is “those who set a TRAP for another will soon fall into it!” That is a trick or a trap, right Barbara? He he he. The title of that […]

Dirty Tricks of Guardians!

  Thanks to NASGA for passing this along: Pinellas County Internal Auditor Robert W. Melton  lectured at Eckerd College in St. Petersburg on: “Dirty Tricks of Guardianships – The Need for Change.” Here are just 10 of the “dirty tricks,” as outlined by Pinellas County Internal Auditor Robert W. Melton taken from Justice for FL Senior’s website: 1) Guardian creation of a trust: Remove all oversight by the court as a provision of the trust agreement; guardian becomes trustee; provide that the trustee can do whatever they want at their sole discretion. 2) Sell real estate at lowball price: Use […]

Better off dead? Hospice kills and not always compassionately

I read a very frightening article that matched the scenario I just endured in probate court with death number 3, as the Judge denied my Temporary Restraining Order asking him to make the guardian, a trust lawyer named Michele Goldigger, from blocking my clients’ access to their mother, including access to records, information and medical providers to ask questions. Goldigger refused to cooperate and the Judge refused to sign my order, allowing her to continue to block my two registered nurse clients, with over 30 years of experience in psychiatric and geriatric medicine and intimate knowledge of their mother’s healthcare […]

The Reprobate Probate Mafia has no right to deprive you of life, liberty or the pursuit of happiness

We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are … endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights…. That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men…. That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its Foundation on such Principles, and organizing its Powers in such Form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. … Mankind are more disposed to suffer, while Evils are sufferable, than to right themselves […]

The police state’s ability to rob imprison and kill you – no more

Courtesy of Elaine Renoire of NASGA: PICTURE THIS: A knock on the door – the police are there to forcibly take you from your home – in handcuffs if you protest! You don’t know why; you’re not a criminal! By the time you find out what’s going on, you’re no longer in control of your life. >That – and more – happened to NASGA member Danny Tate, a young and vibrant musician/composer in his ‘50s.\1/ When he was finally served with a notice to come to court on a later date, he had no control over his assets, could not […]

Reprobate in Probate?

  When I first was aghast at the sewage of snakes I found myself in, it was like a bad dream or the most terrifying surreal John Grisham book I have ever imagined. I have never had to watch anyone die as I begged and made a “well established record of throwing myself on the mercy of the court” (the AAL who condemned a woman to death said 9 days before as I begged through 3 TROS, injunctions, 3 motions to remove the guardian and 3 motions for jury trial that were ignored) as I watched just that. And then […]

Hoodwinked in the House of Representatives!

  What happens when the rule of law increasingly bows to the whims and violations of unaccountable public officials? Lawlessness in every branch and a system of law that caters to the elite, not the people. Our system of law is slowly being eroded by those at the top levels of our government in every branch to such egregious degrees that the law is not law anymore. Form takes precedence over substance. The appearance of legitimacy is all we have in guardianship anymore–unless you’re in a county without a “guardianship program.” I have personally witnessed the stark contrast in crime […]

Money talks, the Disabled don’t? I don’t think so

>I went to probate court and fought as hard as I could fight, working for free in some cases and reduced fee in others. I desperately cried for help but everyone died or was sold to the highest bidder. It was not a nightmare. It hasn’t ended yet and I fear for those still in guardianship. These people died in the protection of the guardianship program, designed to protect. They were protected from medical care, an education at the lowest federal standard, neglected in criminal ways, and kept from doctors who could save their lives. They were handed over to […]

Sentence First, Verdict Last like Wonderland

If you would like to know what probate court is like, I think rather than “kangaroo court,” a term I’ve always had difficulty with, it’s just like Alice in Wonderland. It becomes relevant very soon (in my first case) that a tacit agreement is being enacted in which all of the lawyers have a script you weren’t’ given. With a wink here and a nod there, up becomes down and down becomes up and truth becomes a lie and a lie becomes the truth. Why? Because they agreed it was that way. What’s scary is the Bible speaks of this […]
