A Vitally Important Project That Requires Our Immediate Attention
Taxgate has been given a crucial project. This project will depend upon all of the Taxgate Members, Friends, and Associates to look carefully at the set of circumstances in which can be viewed as a national legal case with the highest impact to come along in years.

Here is a step by step way to file a complaint in this case and make a mark in history.

This is an urgent case and many of you have heard the defendant's name and are familiar with the 'published issues' surrounding it.

There is a Congressman who has tried to restore the Grand Jury to a "Peoples" Jury again, where prosecutors will not just be able to simply demand that the jurors follow the prosecutor's orders and rubber stamp the prosecutor's wishes?

Obviously, this Congressman has to be silenced by those who wish to keep us enslaved. If these two issues are properly addressed, We would truly be free to enjoy our life, liberty and property. The powers that be could never allow that. So what did they do to stop these two issues from going forth?

(1) Charged the Congressman with crimes, including IRS crimes, and

(2) matched him up with a courtroom with a hanging judge.... Putting him into the very court situation that he was trying to abolish so they could punish and silence him.

This man's name is Congressman Jim Traficant from Ohio, and the biased media is doing everything it can to make sure the public think he is a criminal. Paralegals that we work closely with flew up near Cleveland a little over a week ago to meet with Congressman Traficant, and even though they generally do not trust politicians, they found out that he is for real. And even better, he is one of us--who the opposition has attempted to totally smash into submission using the rogue courts who he was attempting to halt as their legal Mafia judicial hit man.

Congressman Traficant was indicted five (5) times for the same alleged conspiracy. This cannot be done! Did Judge Wells do anything about it? No because the law and facts were not going to matter. When you read the indictment, you will see that what the Department of Justice charged as overt acts in furtherance of the alleged conspiracy were actually overt acts in furtherance of doing his job, i.e., going to bat for his constituents. Judge Wells was too dense to recognize this or perhaps, already had her political decision made.

Furthermore, Judge Wells would not allow anyone from Traficant's jurisdiction to sit on his jury (he is loved by his constituency for things such as those I have listed above and for putting a rider on a number of other bills stating that Government must purchase American products first, before purchasing abroad). We are guaranteed a jury of our peers. Congressman Traficant did not get a jury of his peers who are familiar with this maverick that refused to "play ball" and would not keep the elitist status quo in place. In fact, people from other jurisdictions who were in trouble would even write to Traficant because they knew their own Congressmen/women would not listen to them and that he would.

Additionally, the prosecution bribed a succession of witnesses for their testimony against Congressman James Traficant with lighter sentences in exchange for their testimony, after apparently threatening a few of them with longer sentences if they didn't testify. One witness (Richard Detore), refused to be bribed and was retaliated against by the court with his own set of charges because he would not lie and "finger" Traficant by bearing false witness. How would you like this prosecutor against you? Wells was apparently too thickheaded to recognize this sort of outrageous government behavior, or is it that she already had instructions to disobey the law and the facts?

Even more shocking is that coincidentally, Ohio Attorney Elsebeth Baumgartner was independently before this same judge at the same time, exposing the same kind of corruption that Jim Traficant was trying to expose (corruption within the police force, attorneys, and politicians, etc.). Attorney Baumgartner got her license ripped away for trying to protect the public. Most interesting was that Attorney Baumgartner had alleged to Judge Leslie Wells that Attorney Charles Clark was involved in some of the corruption. For the record..... Attorney Clark is Judge Leslie Wells' own husband! Does anyone else see that the corrupt; those who make us slaves to taxes; those who give us no recourse in our courts, those who further enslave us by corrupt justice not even resembling the public line given to us about how our courts are the most just in the world, are the same types of criminals that we have been writing to, begging for an ear to hear our cries? Yet we have to pay their hefty salaries too!

The court made sure to label Traficant what I call the "Triple C"--(they must label him a criminal, con-man, or crazy person so that the pubic will believe he deserved jail for his "crimes."). Those he opposed wanted him silenced and in jail so they could continue to frustrate our efforts for freedom from them. These power elite want to feed off the public without further interruption from people like Traficant.

Do we want Congressmen like Traficant in office? A Congressman who speaks for the people in spite of the penalty? Do we want an ear in Congress--you know Traficant will be one and he already believes what you and I believe? Are we really ready to fight as a team? Do you want to free this man and turn him loose on Congress and on the Court system who tried to smash him by ignoring basic law and facts? Do you want to possibly be freed as a result? He is still a Congressman right now. He is awaiting sentencing. Of course there will be appeals to more deaf ears who also have their marching orders. There are motions filed to demand a new trial, etc.

What we are going to do is send a strong message to the judiciary to make them follow the law and listen to the facts. We are going to show you how to use the LAW to smack this power mad judge Leslie Wells right between the eyes. We will train you up and provide you with the tools needed to get a message LOUD AND CLEAR to this federal judge and let her know that she is NOT GOING TO GET AWAY WITH WHAT SHE IS DOING WHILE WE ARE HERE..

This judge and the IRS do not want us to unite. They don't think we can. The courts and Congress don't want us to work as a finely tuned unit. The are not even considering that possibility. If they were, they would answer our letters and pleas for assistance. No, they arrogantly take 33% or more of our salaries and get fat off the land we plow.

As you know, many of our leaders are prepared to "take the bullet" for these most worthy and important causes. Traficant has told our associates that he is ready to "take the bullet" if he has to (and he already is) to change things in this country.

 Taking the bullet is a waste if there are no reinforcements ready to go and take no prisoners. What you need to do is fairly easy, legal, nonviolent, free (other than a little postage and paper), and it will help you learn how to take the power we have been given, and use it in all legal, nonviolent ways that actually matter. But we need numbers and we need repetition. Are you ready? Are you ready to fight for yourselves, your family, you neighbors, your fellow Americans, and your future? Are you ready to unite those who are fighting against taxes, with those who are fighting against runaway courts? Are you ready to take some instruction, and act as a finely tuned machine using all legal and nonviolent means available? To USE THE SAME LAWS THAT THEY CLOBBER US WITH TO CLOBBER THEM?

We hope so because we have a golden opportunity right now and we cannot let Jim Traficant get away--and go to jail; silenced by these slave owners who then keep us picking cotton for them. We must not shoot our wounded and we must not let this opportunity slip away. We are going to let the Judiciary and Congress know that we will no longer tolerate being ignored and will not stand by while our leaders are imprisoned without so much as a whimper from us.

Remember, every federal judge in the United States goes to bed at night dreaming of singing with the Supremes (Supreme Court) in the Imperial City. No federal judge has a prayer of being nominated or appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court if he or she has a dossier containing hundreds of judicial misconduct complaints (thousands are even better). This is what we are going to do. This will END THE CAREER OF GUESS WHO?

We are going to be doing judicial complaints in mass, against one judge (samples provided so your work will be limited). No special standing is required, it is free other than stamps and paper, and it is not a suit, but just a complaint so you will not have to go to court, testify, etc.

One judicial misconduct complaint is a mere annoyance to a federal judge. Ten thousand (10,000) of them will destroy her career, her exalted opinion of herself, public confidence in her ability to conduct a fair trial, and much more. The judiciary and Congress need to understand that we will no longer stand for our leaders being picked off one-by-one through fraudulent use of the litigation vortex.

They will hear that the changes that Traficant was proposing to deaf Congressional ears, like the IRS and judicial reform issues are very important to Americans from every state, and should no longer be ignored.

We will no longer allow the courts to ignore the facts and the law without our own legal, nonviolent recourse. They either give it to us or we get it ourselves using legal means to do it. We are sending a message to anyone else dealing with these issues, or handling the Traficant file, that they need to listen to the issues, and the facts and the law or "The People" will speak for themselves.

To make sure you see the significance of this project, you need to know that prior to 1997 Congress normally received less than 300 of these judicial misconduct complaints a year. Put enough of these in and Congress will pay attention. Just ask former Federal Judge Hatchett. He is no longer on the Federal Bench. The people there had spoken to the tune of a reported 5,000 complaints! We can do much, much better here. The directions. Think about it: Judge Smith has 3 judicial complaints (which of course are ignored by the reviewers), Judge Jones has 6 judicial complaints (yes, ignored), and Judge Leslie Wells has 33,531 judicial complaints. Which one does not inherit the Divine Right of Kings at promotion time?

Obviously, these complaints are devastating to the federal judges complained about in particular and the federal judiciary in general. In fact, these complaints are so devastating that the Chief Judge of the Circuit Court of Appeals normally orders his (or her) court clerks to return all duplicate petitions, even though such conduct is a felony, 18 U.S.C. 2071.

These complaint forms are also almost impossible to get off the Internet (imagine that). Does that tell you something? The FEDERAL FOLKS want to make a judicial complaint process as confusing as possible so you won't make one. Therefore, sample complaints are provided as addendum for you.  This is our country and we run it whether our public "servants" want us to or not. :

(At the first reading of this letter, you may want to skip the directions and go straight to the conclusion below).

You will find on this web site a 28 U.S.C. 372(c)(1) Complaint for Judicial Misconduct against federal district court judge Lesley Brooks Wells.

28 U.S.C. 372(c)(1) permits any person (there is no standing requirement) to complain that a federal judge is unable to discharge all the duties of office by reason of mental or physical disability. See In re Complaints of Judicial Misconduct, 9 F. 3d 1562, 1567 (U.S. Jud. Conf. 1993).

You don't have to have "standing" nor must you pay a fee-just mail four copies to:

Office of the Circuit Executive
Attn: Complaint of Disability
503 U.S. Post Office and Courthouse Building
Cincinnati, OH 45202

These complaints are recorded by the Administrative Office of the United States Courts, an agency monitored by Congress. Each complaint is supposed to be given a docket number and becomes a permanent part of the judge's personnel file. Also, since such a complaint is "confidential," the name of the judge complained about should NOT appear on the envelope.

No federal judge has a prayer of being nominated or appointed to the U. S. Supreme Court if he or she has a dossier containing hundreds of judicial misconduct complaints.

If you don't have the patience or the money to send the requisite number of copies to the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati, at least send one to either your Congressman or the House Judiciary Committee.

The address for your Congressman is:

U.S. House of Representatives
Washington, DC 20515

Remember:

These complaints are devastating to the federal judges complained about in particular and the federal judiciary in general. In fact, these complaints are so devastating that the Chief Judge of the Circuit Court of Appeals normally orders his (or her) court clerks to return all duplicate petitions, even though such conduct is a felony, 18 U.S.C. 2071.

There is a way around this unlawful conduct. You are allowed to attach up to five (5) pages to complain about a judge.

Click here to view each of the 41 pages individually of this indictment.

http://news.findlaw.com/hdocs/docs/traficant/traficant50401indt.pdf  (This is a large file, so please allow your system a few minutes or more to download it.)
If you are unable to view the petition in PDF format, you may need to download a (free) copy of Acrobat Reader. For more information, visit the HELP FOR PDF DOCUMENTS page.

You don't need to use up the whole 5 pages. In fact, five separate complaints of one page each are superior to one 5-page complaint submitted five times. The one-pagers, if they address different issues, will all be filed and given a different docket number. These complaints are recorded by the Administrative Office of the United States Courts, an agency monitored by Congress.

If we can make an example out of this judge in this fashion, we may be able to force other judges as corrupt and incompetent as this one to resign. You can imagine the effect hundreds of different complaints have on a federal judge's career. In 1994 the Health Education Reform Act was passed, depriving the FDA of jurisdiction over vitamins and food supplements, after Congress received two (2) million letters on the subject. 372(c)(1) Complaints are far more effective than mere letters.

Each one becomes a court record. Feel free to rewrite them, add or subtract, or whatever. If you want to use your own case to demonstrate part of a pattern of misconduct on the part of Judge Wells, be sure to write your own attachment. Prior to 1997 Congress normally received less than 300 of these judicial misconduct complaints a year. Put enough of these in and Congress will pay attention.

Do not modify this progression by asking other people to do anything illegal, such as making threats, etc. If you want to help Congressman James Traficant out and let him know that you appreciate him, staple a $20.00 bill (or more) to a copy of your 372 (do NOT send him the 4 copies for filing) and mail it to:

Traficant Legal Defense Fund
P.O. Box 647
Canfield, Ohio 44406

Please don't expect a response from him, he's really short handed at the moment. What you can expect, if enough of us "fight in formation," is for the rest of Congress to pay attention.

At the moment the federal judiciary and the Department of Justice has the incumbent members of Congress completely intimidated. Thanks for your help.
