- Anatomy Of The Big Court Fix
- One of the hardest things to understand for poorly informed
folks is that the law and the facts are not the controlling factors in
important cases in Court. Mind you, not every case is corrupted or "fixed".
Too often, however, the big ones show signs there has been a malign, if
not corrupt, influence on the Judge or Judges involved.
- Our court reform group, targetting court corruption,
has been active for four decades. We know what to look for. The assignment
of cases, is, to us, a key sign.
- We have been writing and commenting, and did a one-hour
Cable TV Program, on the corruption in the case against The Coca-Cola Company,
in Chicago's notorious federal district court. With no exceptions, every
judgeship in the place has been bought and sold over the years. [Visit
onur website story, Buying a Judgeship.]
- The case against Coca-Cola was brought in January, 1997,
by a Nebraska attorney, John DeCamp, with long prior experience with the
American CIA. [The plaintiff, Robert E. Kolody, found it difficult to get
a local attorney.] DeCamp was in a position to understand plenty. He was
in a position to know that this important case in Chicago, involving claims
against the soda pop monster for theft of intellectual property, storyboards
and designs, would be difficult to continue. Any plaintiff's attorney might
get chewed up and spit out, especially by Coca-Cola, a worldwide adjunct
and proprietary operation of the American CIA.
- By the corrupt process of random magic, instead of random
selection, the Coca-Cola case was assigned to Chicago U.S. District Judge
Blanche M. Manning [(312) 435-7608]. And the road to reportedly blackmailing
her, to favor Coca-Cola, was already built. Running on that road was waste
hauler John Christopher who had a criminal past with reputed ties to organized
crime. He agreed to be an FBI "mole" and to wear a "wire"
to target some of Chicago's City Officials, known as "the best that
money can buy". The FBI/U.S. Justice Department project was dubbed
"Silver Shovel". Screwing the residents in their own districts
with poisonous waste, various city council Aldermen took apparent pay-offs
or reportedly extorted pay-offs from Christopher, so he could illegally
dump huge waste in their neighborhoods. Left-over construction junk. This
was primarily or exclusively in poor black areas, with an empty lot or
two, areas without financial or political clout. By the way, after the
FBI dust had settled, the U.S. Government did NOT quickly offer to haul
away all the toxic mess that Christopher unloaded, often right near populated
inner city areas.
- "Silver Shovel" was a headlined scandal in
the local press starting about January, 1996. By the time the Coca-Cola
case got started a year later, City of Chicago Commissioner of Water, John
Bolden, was targeted for federal criminal prosecution in "Silver Shovel".
His and the soda pop case were both pending before Judge Manning. Commissioner
Bolden's defense attorney, James Montgomery, was reportedly a close crony
of Judge Manning. It was obvious to savvy sorts what might happen. Montgomery
reportedly had ties of some sort over the years with Nevada gambling casino
gangsters. Reportedly part of the crime cartel and a big-time owner of
gambling casinos, William F. Cellini reportedly had bought the federal
judgeship for Manning, paying some one million dollars through then U.S.
Senator Carol Moseley-Braun [D., Ill.].
- John DeCamp, in a position reportedly to understand a
few things about Coca-Cola and the CIA and the Chicago federal judges,
withdrew from the newly started case against Coke, in July, 1997. A few
weeks later, started the federal criminal trial USA vs. John Bolden. Same
- Anyone knowing a lot about court knows that even trials
by jury can be "fixed" or sabotaged by the trial Judge. Such
as, by the Judge keeping out key evidence as being "inadmissible",
by manipulating the dates and circumstances of the jury procedures. By
slanting the court procedures against the prosecutors and in favor of the
criminal defendant. By scheduling the jury under peculiar circumstances.
In September, 1997, the jury in the Bolden case came back with a split
verdict. Guilty on tax evasion, wherein Bolden could get, at most, six
months in prison. They acquitted Bolden on the more serious charges of
- John Bolden was a bigshot making as much as 90 thousand
dollars a year as Commissioner of Water for City of Chicago. [And perhaps
much more as pay-offs to influence his official position.] He was a big
fish. The team that helped put together the charges against Bolden were
and are livid. Why? They contend that Judge Manning, to go easy on Water
Commissioner Bolden, got a financial benefit that some might construe as
a bribe. The team, in plain language, grumbles loud enough for others to
hear, that U.S. District Judge Blanche M. Manning is a crook, whose chair
reportedly was bought for her by a crook, and that she belongs in prison,
along with the one who bought her the Judgesghip.
- To understand this story fully, you have to understand
the realities of political and financial power. Those who put together
criminal charges are most often NOT concerned about bribes to Judges in
CIVIL cases. So, if Judge Manning had been bribed or corruptly influenced
or blackmailed in the CIVIL case, the one against Coca-Cola, well, the
team is NOT concerned. In the Water Commissioner's case, Judge Manning
made the same mistake, however, as Chicago Federal Appeals Judge Otto Kerner,
Jr., in 1969. He had reportedly taken a huge bribe in a CIVIL case, involving
a five million dollar claim regarding a pet food company. The matter, however,
that instigated the federal criminal charges aagainst Judge Kerner was
that he had been corrupted to turn loose the Silver-Hi-Jacking Gang, an
important federal CRIMINAL case.
- A federal judge is a fool to counter the prosecutors
in a federal criminal case. A federal judge who takes bribes or financial
benefits or is corruptly influenced or blackmailed, in a CIVIL case, most
likely stays peacefully and quietly on the bench until he or she retires
- The other some two dozen U.S. District Judges that sit
with Judge Manning in the federal courthouse in Chicago are just as corrupt
as Manning. EXCEPT, they do not screw or sabotage or sabotage CRIMINAL
cases. [This is not a blanket generality. I could detail their crimes as
well, one by one.]
- Judge Kerner learned the hard way the number one unwritten
law that applies to crooked judges: YOU DO NOT SCREW AROUND WITH CRIMINAL
CASES,only civil cases.
- Our group, by the way, was instrumental in getting Kerner
put in prison. He was the highest ranking sitting federal judge to be sent
to jail for bribery in U.S. history. Also sent to jail with him, by our
work, was his crony, the former Director of the Illinois Department of
Revenue, the highest Illinois state tax collector, Theodore J. Isaacs.
When I publicly accused Kerner, he tried to get a fellow judge to jail
me for contempt of court. Kerner held a press conference and all the local
media carried his statement calling me a "liar". But get this,
he died an ex-convict. So who was lying after all?
- Here are a few questions to think about:  Were and
are Coca-Cola's hotshot Chicago lawyers in a position to know that Judge
Manning may be in big trouble and subject to blackmail, such as reportedly
by Coke's lawyers, because of her role in the Water Commissioner's case.
Coca-Cola's attorneys are: Ms Laura Beth Miller, of Brinks, Hofer, Gilson
& Lione [(312) 321-4715], E-mail: email@example.com FAX:(312)
321-4299.  Why is nothing done about Simon Marketing, a marketing adjunct
of Coca-Cola and also defendant with them? The one in court that purports
to represent Simon Marketing, reportedly actually represents the insurance
carrier. Are they committing a fraud upon the court? Simon Marketing merged
with Cyrk, Inc., not shown in the Court record. Purporting to represent
Simon Marketing is: Jacqueline A. Criswell (312) 627-4000 E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
FAX: (312) 627-1717, of Tressler, Soderstrom, Maloney & Priess. 
Why did Judge Manning have six federal police in her courtroom, to intimidate
me, when I testified at a hearing as to my investigations in respect to
Judge Manning and the Coca-Cola case?  The other judges in the federal
courthouse with Judge Manning know better than to sabotage or corruptly
screw up the prosecutors in a federal criminal case. How is it that she
does not realize she on the road to possible disaster? Did she flunk out
of Crooked Judge 101? The other crooked judges in her courthouse have all
passed the test. They are each as corrupt as her but know how to survive
as a corrupt judge.
- Cynics claim that the School for training Corrupt Judges
how to survive, is financed, in part, by gambling casino loot. Wise bookies
are refusing bets, however, on Judge Manning, a judicial school drop-out.
Do we know who actually runs such a school? You betcha.
- Stay tuned.
