The Root of All Evil in America ? ! ? !

Is the following article from American Free Press accurate? If so, it may go along way towards explaining extreme corruption in the Judicial system. And as if that wasn't enough, with the story we also have a murdered attorney mystery, and a lawsuit naming multiple defendants in the Department of Justice, including Judge Anna J. Brown.

The article describes how, according to federal statutes, it is perfectly acceptable to award virtually any government employee or other person CASH AWARDS, IN SECRET, as high as $ 5,000 or more. And the kicker is that there doesn't appear to be much limitation to this, if at all. If true, this creates a serious incentive for convictions, and could also explain why our prisons are over capacity like whoa.

In fact, if this is true, it may explain a whole lot more than that. For instance, remember the $ 2.3 Trillion Rumsfeld said was missing on September 10, 2001? (and which is still unaccounted for...?) What if it's all gone paying out huge amounts of bonuses in secret like this, and protected by statute? Do the statutes specify what fund this is to come from, so they can be tracked? ARE they being tracked?

This may turn out to be the root of all evil in America, I swear!

So let's see what we can turn up to either prove this or disprove it!

First, read the article, which is written well.

Federal statutes show how and why U.S. law encourages prosecutorial and judicial conflicts of interest, non-neutrality, non-impartiality and corruption of justice in the federal courts. (See page 13 for portions of 5 USC 4502 through 4504 from the United States Code.)

It would be helpful to read that part of the USC. Star for anyone who wants to dig that up!

“The awards may be given to the same person or group, each minute, each hour, every day, every week, every month, every year or not at all. In other words, the U.S. government and the alleged Internal Revenue Service . . . have a perfectly legal (not lawful) system of bribery. The bribery works against the American people . . . when they expect impartial justice, and there is no proof on the record to the contrary.”

Legal Bribery! Yeah, that would explain a lot of things. For sure. And it would explain a lot of dubious legal cases as well. See article for details.

Defendant Roy Bendshadler’s attorney Nancy Bergeson had complained of suspected “jury tampering” and was found strangled to death in her Portland home the next day. Her cause of death was at first passed off as “natural causes” until a second medical examiner changed it to homicide. The murder is unsolved.

Yeah, there's another point: "We are willing to pay you $ 5,000 to keep your mouth shut and push for conviction, Mr. Juror. And if we get it, we will pay you an additional $ 5,000 or more!"

Stack the jury with 12 of those, and your boy is going down. No question. Oh, it's a high profile case? Well well, no problem, we can pay $ 5K every day for a year.

I had always heard the phrase "Money Talks."

I might rethink that. THIS money is SILENT- but deadly.

Wowsers! Corruption! Why am I not surprised?

Thanks, though, for attempting to wake some more people.

Juat wanted to add, bribes aside, when sitting as a juror on a case, if you don't want to get into the discussion of jury nolification, YOU, as a juror, ca still vote NOT to convict. You don't have to explain yourself. Just say, NO!

I recall a jury my sister was sitting on. The charge was, growing more than 4 marijuana plants. A felony. My sister told me, she didn't think this law was right, but the judge spelled it all out to the jury. 5 plants, you must convict! And she did. Cuz the judge said so. Jeeze. Just say, NO! You don't even have to explain your vote. If you believe in your vote, just ignore the other stuff. and stick with your ideals, and your vote!

Juat saying................offer me a bit of money to compromise my personal principles? Can I get this on record? Heh.

Bribery (supposedly a Felony) is just as accepted as Baseball and Apple pie in America. They call it campaign contributions and lobbying. It's done on a daily basis on capitol hill, and is what is at the core of any fascist country. There is a cure to this disease.

There's absolutely no reason at all to believe that bribery is not being done en-mass in the courtroom, when the very people that MAKE the laws are more highly complicit in it's practices than anyone else.

Money truly IS the ROOT of all evil, and it's what is turning itself - and the Constitution - into toilet paper.

"When are we as a "Nation" going to understand this very simple precept?", and "What are we going to do about it?" are the only questions we need to answer if we value freedom at any level. Again, there are things we can do about it when enough people wake up.

The sheep must wake up and break out of their corrals if the critical mass needed to take back our country has any chance at all. I believe that is happening as we speak, and we must believe that it's never too late.

This thread furthers that hope...a very easy star and flag.

Sorry, but I just don't see the "evidence" here for any widespread bribery among the judiciary. Not that it's unlikely, bribery seems to be endemic in our society. Where's the smoking gun here? - An IRS statute?
Maybe I'm missing something (besides a brain

The article refers to 5 USC 4502 - 4504 which can be found here:

Awards for Superior Accomplishments

However, in section 4501, where it defines what agencies this section applies to, it lists such agencies as the Library of Congress, Botanical Garden, and Government Printing office.

It seems like it's stipulating performance bonuses for specific agencies, and certainly not courts as the article stated.

Thank you for your reply. That answers my question very nicely.
After reading it, it certainly sounds vague enough to perhaps be used to bribe people widely. The criteria seems fairly unsubstantial for the payment of such sums.

I'd be willing to bet that these awards can extend into the court systems for judges as well. I didn't see anything (after reading through a bunch of the USC) prohibiting that. I did see some prohibitions though that most Executive level positions cannot receive cash awards. There are a lot more restrictions on these awards than the article implies, and now you see why I put this in SW- so we could assess the accuracy of this article. Thanks for digging up the code. Star awarded as promised!

Its almost not worth even making a thread about on the internet. I. Don't think there is a person who disagrees that money is the root of all evil. There might be someone who thinks the "devil" is the root, but I might refer you to a different post about islam. I don't mean to undermind (phish joke) anyone but there just isn't a place for religious superstition in todays modern society. Money is undoubtedly the root of all evil. Some say "absolue power corrupts absolutely". While this is true, money buys power.

Well what we are really talking about here is the issue of allowing our employees to give themselves their own rewards, in secret, at our expense, whenever they want.

I mean that is just ridiculous. Imagine if you owned a company and you let your employees do this to you! NO chance!

But that is exactly what is happening here. It sucks. Plain and simple.
