Chautauqua Homeless Campaign v. Mt. Ashland Defenders: Ashland Watershed Evaluation of Rogue Valley in Southern Oregon HA-20-3-12; Fraud and Related Activity in Connection with Computer 18USC(1)(47)§1030
An application for writ of certiorari has been drafted to enable the U.S. Supreme Court of the generally insolvent federal government to return TARP repayments to the General Fund and TARP distressed homeowner funds to HUD for liquidation. In this case it is necessary for the Court to reassure social and environmental corporate responsibility damaged by the erroneous censorship of the 2003 EPA selection of Alternative 3, that prohibits development on the Middle Fork of Middle Creek which drains directly into the restricted Ashland Watershed, from the ONRC v. Mt. Ashland Association (US 9th Cir)(2004) injunction against District Court approved Alternatives 2 and 6. The ski resort, constructed in a restricted area where camping is prohibited, has been a divisive and corrupting influence on the community since its inception. The construction of the ski resort in 1963 caused extraordinary amounts of sedimentation in Reeder Reservoir which required dredging. Today, dredging costs around $600,000 and whereas the City of Ashland gets 100% of its drinking water therefrom, it is necessary to secure $1.2 million to dredge the reservoir twice. The EPA is responsible for 65-75% of the non-federal share of such dredging under the Clean Water Act of 1972 and Safe Drinking Water Act of 1974; $780,000-$900,000. The Ashland Watershed feeds into Bear Creek which is not potable, like most low lying springs in the area, whose residents need to import drinking water if they don’t have access to city water. Flood risk would be mitigated by paying an estimated $100,000 for the preventative removal of fallen trees from the creek and ensuring that during a flood emergency there is a large backhoe or crane to remove fallen trees available at every bridge, which has been the primary cause of property damage from flooding since the development of the Bear Creek Greenway. Strangely, the paranoia regarding the construction of the ski resort on the restricted drinking watershed in the 1960s resulted in the prohibition of century long Chautauqua Association tradition of free camping in beautiful Lithia Park and plagiarism of Oregon Shakespeare Festival and Mt. Ashland ski lift tickets by onerous Camping Prohibited tickets. Ashland has only a Winter Sunday and Cold Weather Homeless Shelter and Medford has a 10 day limit on stays in the Gospel Mission shelter wherefore a $1 per capita homeless shelter grant aims to rent Pioneer Hall for a homeless shelter supported by winter and summer camps in Lithia Park, as a share of Jackson County’s $203,206 McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act federal grant, and open Table Rocks in northern Rogue Valley for wilderness camping and the return of the Takelma descendants, the Confederated Tribes of the Siletz, for regular powwows. “$5 a night wilderness camping, Native Americans and indigents making less than $1,000 a month camp free”.
Wikileaks: Release Assange and Manning HA-31-1-12
As of January 30, 2012 WikiLeaks website reports that the organization has undergone 423 days of banking blockade - no process; Julian Assange has been subjected to 420 days detainment no charge. Bradley Manning had been subjected to 617 days incarceration in a U.S. military prison - no brief. I was first asked to take the case of Julian Assange in December 2010 around the time Interpol issued a warrant for his arrest and released him on bail a week later. I declined to take the case at the time because he was not actually in prison and I felt my actions were more likely to jeopardize his life than help his case. In 2011 An Open Letter from the Members of the European Parliament expressed concern for the human rights of Bradley Manning. U.S. Congress responded by abolishing the death penalty in espionage and censorship statute that now provides victim compensation at 18USC(I)(37)§793(h)(4) and 18USC(I)(37)§794(d)(4). When I was reminded of Bradley Manning’s unlawful detention in November 2011 by the courageous work of Deb Van Poolen who sponsored a candlelight vigil with a coalition of advocacy organizations before going to Washington D.C. on hunger strike for Bradley Manning, in the New Year, I resolved to cover Wikileaks, as one of two cases for “Jail January” 2012. The Supreme Court of Sweden quickly moved for a February 2012 ruling on Julian Assange. Charges against Bradley Manning must be dismissed under Rule 907 of the Manual for Courts Martial. Mercy, No further action need be taken to investigate or prosecute the European arrest warrant of Julian Assange under Chapter 11 Article 13(2) of the Constitution of Sweden. N.A.T.O. may pay victim compensation for the Collateral Murder Video released 5 April 2010.
Medford 6 and Bend 8: Trespassing on a Conflict of Interest HA-11-1-12
I ran the Medford Marathon, around 17 miles, in two-and-a-half hours from 8:30-11:00 am, to the Occupy rally on Jan. 5th at 1:30 pm at Medford City Hall in support of the "Medford 6" and “Bend 8” who had been arrested and fined $1,000 for trespassing in the offices of Republican U.S. Representative Greg Walden in Medford, Bend and a third location where they weren’t arrested in the second district of Oregon on Dec. 5, 2011. All told, the Medford 6 pled no contest and each paid a $150 fine to Medford Muni. The betrayal of the People by the Progressive Democrats to the 8% approval ratings of Congress enabled Republican Majority Leader Rep. Boehner (OH) to pass a $10 billion, 2 month extension of the 2% OASI tax Middle Class Tax Relief Act (MCRTRA) of December 2011. Not enough to cause net loss of employment like the $90 billion MCTRA of 2010. This economic damage to the Happy New Year is more than offset by the deficiency judgment in TARP Winter Shelter Closeout. The federal government has two weeks to repeal this bill. Occupy is a revolution of the 99% against the 1%. The past 30 years under the tyranny of the Baby Boomers’ majority experiment with birth control has been non-supportive. Elders are led astray, homeless rights advocates leave town. In general, Occupy Baby Boomers, as Elders, the natural born leaders of any organic leaderless grassroots movement, need to be reminded of the lobbying restrictions on former officers, employees, and elected officials. The day of the trial of the Medford 6, James “Jimmy” Georgeson (20) was shot and killed by Federal Marshalls on Jan. 5, 2012. Jackson County may impose a $250,000 fine on the Oregon Federal Marshalls to better protect the Rogue Valley against the Use of the Interstate Commercial Facility in the Commission of Murder for Hire. However the Jackson County Clerk Chris Walker and Sheriff Winters face federal investigation under bribery of public official and witness statute. The international rate of compensation for families of civilian death casualties of military operations run from $2,500-$10,000.
Occupy D.C. Founders Speak at Southern Oregon University HA-2-16-12
Two events were hosted in the month of February at Southern Oregon University. The first, at Feb. 15, 5:00pm -- Solidarity Potluck; 6:30pm -- Trade Justice Roadshow: Corporate Globalization & the Trans-Pacific FTA. The second, on Feb. 16, 6:30pm -- Dr. Margaret Flowers and Kevin Zeese: The Occupy Movement and Universal Healthcare. The Trans-Pacific Free Trade negotiations are "being held in secret" and the working documents need to be released on the Internet. Those attending unanimously declared the United States of America v. Kim Dotcom, Megaupload Limited et al. United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia Alexandria Division Criminal seizure of January 19, 2012 and adopted the armed robbery case as poster-child to the TPFTA. Deb Van Poolen went to Washington D.C. on hunger strike for Bradley Manning and returned with Occupy D.C. co-founders lawyer Kevin Zeese and physician Margaret Flowers, who are travelling the West Coast Occupy movements from San Francisco, to speak at Southern Oregon University. The Occupy D.C. founders agreed to look into converting D.C. prisons to homeless shelters. Ms. Flowers defends her failed experiment in federal lobbying for universal health insurance, “20 years ago 70% of American physicians were members of the American Medical Association (AMA) today only 15% are”. Kevin Zeese tells us, “This is an interesting time in our history. The empire is hollowing out our economy. Rome had 37 bases, the U.S. over 600. 400 people have 80% of the wealth. They didn't get there by being any smarter or working harder than everyone else but because the system is corrupt. Corruption is so extreme Obama holds luncheons costing $37,000, more than the median American income. We've had everything stolen from us. 2/3 of us do not have $1,000 for emergency expenses. For 10 years polls have shown 2/3 of Americans want single payer. We want to move to a democratized economy away from oligarchy. Occupy is the beginning of a political movement however it must abolish and not lobby the establishment”. The anonymous Democratic candidate/mole rumored to be attending didn’t speak and both? Democratic and Republican (DR) parties in the 2nd Congressional District of Oregon are charged 25% of their 2012 campaign contributions for the winter jacket by all the independent political organizations.
Homeless Campaign HA-9-2-12
To wrap up the message of the Citizen’s Homeless Coalition and Ashland City Council Homeless Steering Committee, it is proposed to change the name of the organization to the Homeless Campaign, at least for the purposes of this newsletter of minutes from the every-other Thursday meetings at Peace Church. The name Homeless Campaign reminds every community of the need for (1) a homeless shelter and (2) free camping. Ashland, with a population of 20,000 is seeking $20,000 annually, $1 per capita, in federal grants and tax-credits for 75% of the costs of acquiring new homeless shelters under the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act. It is hoped to legally incorporate as a taxpaying 527 political organization once we have negotiated 501(c)(3) property tax forgiveness for the homeless shelter and park maintenance for the restrooms at the campground at Lithia Park, where the free camping was prohibited in the 1960s.
New Year’s Eve Candlelight Vigil at Ashland Plaza for “Gone” Shane Jolly who died there on Christmas Eve HA-24-12-11
Shane Jolly, a homeless man, known as Gone by his friends, died at the Ashland Plaza at 8:30 pm on Christmas Eve. At the Peace Church breakfast we decided to host a candlelight vigil at the Plaza on New Year's Eve. The police man at the David Grubbs memorial on the bike path, removing the journal I had not yet inscribed a Psalm of David in, said "the medical examiner determined the cause of death to be choking on meat or his own vomit". Autopsies are only performed in 5% of deaths in the United States. Gone had been heard a month before saying that he was "going to die" and he may have had a pre-existing medical condition for which we do demand an autopsy. The City of Ashland must pay for the autopsy and funeral arrangements as compensation for the false arrest and spate of $1,000 tickets the days right before Gone died. I want to know why the homeless are reputed to have shorter life expectancies than other people although the home is so much more homicidal than camping in my own experience. We ask that the Ashland Daily Tidings make public the findings on Shane Jolly’s death certificate, request that an autopsy be performed and communicate with the family and funeral directors regarding the body and effects of the deceased. Majik WiZz says, “earlier the day Gone died at my feet he told me that he had just been given two $1,000 tickets over the past few days”. Stashe, the homeless firefighter who performed the Heimlich maneuver says, “Gone died after I had restored breathing because the ambulance put him on the stretcher on his back and he continued choking which probably caused his passing”. The last time I talked with Gone he was walking past the Food Co-op, it was snowing and he was carrying a big backpack, he was finally wearing pants and looked pretty warm with a few pairs of socks in his flip flops. Now his soul has gone to play shofar in the House of the Lord where he is believed by Christians to be Angel.
Ashland Oregon Community Shelter and Camping Declaration HA-24-12-11
In the entire Rogue Valley with a population of 203,206 the Medford Gospel Mission is the most reliable emergency shelter but it does not serve individuals more than 10 days a month. In the city of Ashland with a population of 20,078 there is only a Cold Weather shelter at the First Presbyterian Church on Sundays in the winter and when it is predicted to get below 20º F. Working under the Peace Church 501(c)(3) umbrella Aaron Fletcher has written a working title Community Shelters, that 18 people signed, and Alan Sandler has offered to pay the deposit and three months’ rent for a winter homeless shelter. The City of Ashland needs to come up with a 20 year commitment to sustain a winter homeless shelters and camping at the swimming hole in Lithia Park to help qualify the Rogue Valley for an estimated $20,000 annually in grants and tax-credits for 75% of the costs of acquiring new homeless shelters under the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act. The Ashland Daily Tidings building, across Siskiyou Blvd. from the First Presbyterian Church, is newly vacant. Would a winter homeless shelter and an emergency declaration “summer camp by the swimming hole” not leave enough time for the grass roots to grow? In a survey of 224 cities, the National Conference of Mayors found: (1) Only 21% prohibit begging citywide, and 43% in particular public places; (2) 16% prohibit “loitering” citywide, 39% prohibit loitering in particular public areas, and 27% prohibit sitting/lying in certain public places; (3) Only 16% had citywide prohibitions on camping, and 28% on camping in particular public places. A city that does not provide adequate shelters for the destitute cannot constitutionally enforce against them a law prohibiting sitting, lying or sleeping in public places under Jones v. City of Los Angeles, (9th Cir. 2006). HUD reported that on any given night an estimated 754,000 persons will experience homelessness and between 330,000 and 415,000 will stay at a homeless shelter or transitional housing throughout the U.S. depending upon the season. Over a five-year period, about 2-3 percent of the U.S. population (5-8 million people) will experience at least one night of homelessness. A much smaller group, perhaps as many as 500,000 people, have greater difficulty ending their homelessness. In 1996, an estimated 637,000 adults were homeless in a given week. In the same year, an estimated 2.1 million adults were homeless over the course of a year. Between 1996 and 2005 the number of emergency shelter declined from 9,600 to 6,200 a loss of 3,400 mostly due to conversion to group home. Maybe we can Occupy as many as 10,000 new traditional and non-traditional homeless shelter grants in the USA this winter 2012.
Authorization Request for Dental Services HA-14-2-12
I need to get two teeth treated if I am to kiss a girl at midnight on New Year’s Eve 2012-2013. I have therefore prepared a claim alleging discrimination on the basis of disability to enable a dentist to secure payment for the extraction of an upper wisdom tooth and root canal and composite restoration of the first maxillary molar. Humans have twenty baby (primary) teeth and thirty-two adult (permanent) teeth. In total, more than 95 percent of adults in the United States are afflicted with dental caries. At the age of 12, 58 percent of children in the United States have some caries in their permanent teeth. By age 17, the figure jumps to over 84 percent. By the time children reach the age of 17 only 16 percent are free of dental caries. Over 60 percent of those over age 65 have root caries, three times the rate of younger adults. Almost all seniors (95 percent) have at least one area where the gum has lost its attachment to the tooth. Nearly 70 percent have more severe periodontal pockets (over 4 millimeters). Twenty-five percent of Americans are without any natural teeth when they die. The ingestion of sugar is the culprit in the development of caries. Prehistoric man had very little caries, only 2 to 4 percent of the teeth examined. Through the Roman, Anglo-Saxon and Medieval periods, the incidence of caries hovered at about 10 percent. The rate remained constant until the end of the seventeenth century when, with the development and distribution of sugar cane, it began its steady rise. By 1850 sugar was eaten by most of the population, and the incidence of caries mushroomed. Both the consumption of sugar and the rate of caries continued to rise until the 1950s and 60s. At this time, fluoride was added to municipal and school water supplies and toothpastes and the rate of caries began to decline. The conventional wisdom is to brush and floss twice a day and see your dentist twice a year. There are only two basic concepts to remember to be a successful dentist, “The front teeth have to look good and the back teeth have to be pain free. If these two rules are followed, the patients will be happy and the dentist will make a good living”.
Book 4 State Mental Institution Library Education (SMILE)\
To amend Chapter 4 St. Elizabeth’s Hospitals §161-230 incorporating Chapter 9 §321-329 Hospitalization of Mentally Ill Nationals Returned from Foreign Countries at §189-194. Review in March. National Social Work month, this work changes the name of the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to the Social Work Administration (SWA) to administrate professionally competent review tribunals of hospitalizations for mental illness and substance abuse by licensed social workers. District of Columbia Mental Health System statute reduced the inpatient psychiatric population of St. Elizabeth’s hospital from 7,000 to 600 and in 2009 the buildings were occupied by U.S. Customs. Globally mental illness and psychological disorders stemming from substance are estimated to affect a combined total of 450 million people, 7.3% of the population. 55% of Americans have suffered mental illness at some time in their life and 1 in 5 Americans experience a diagnosable mental disorder in any given year, about 5% suffer a serious mental illness. In 1997 30,535 people died from suicide in the U.S. and it was the 11th leading cause of death in 2000. The de-institutionalization movement has been successful in reducing the psychiatric inpatient population by half from 515,572 in 1970 to 198,195 in 1998. During 1999 there were 1.7 million admissions to inpatient psychiatric treatment, 424,450 of those were involuntary commitments. Mental illness is the second leading cause of disability, costing disability insurance an estimated $24 billion and medical $65 billion annually, with mental health organization accounting for around $38 billion in expenditures. Under deinstitutionalization the diagnosis of mental illness and psychiatric drug consumption have increased alarmingly particularly amongst juveniles. Anti-psychotic and hypnotic drugs are the leading cause of prescription drug overdose. Civil commitments and judge enforced medication are abolished. The licenses of all state mental institutions, private psychiatric hospitals and general hospital psychiatric wards are terminated. Funds shall be reinvested in social worker supervised group homes and forensic hospitals. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) V must recognize the diagnosis sado-masochism (dsm) to reverse the rise of this abusive class to its highest levels of incompetence. MIRROR form…545
Book 6 Judicial Delinquency (JD)
To amend Chapter 6 Freemen’s Hospital §261-270. Freeman’s Hospital and Asylum cared for freed slaves in the Washington DC area during the civil war era. In 2005 a record 7 million people, one in every 32 Americans, were in prison or jail, an increase of 2.7% over the previous year. In 2009 the state prison population declined for the first time since 1973. Reductions in the prison population is a priority for the U.S., lawyers and judicial officers must focus on achieving this monumental task and cease corrupting political and commercial power with their negligence. The prison population quintupled from 503,586 in 1980 (220 per 100,000) to 2,085,620 in 2004 (707 per 100,000). The U.S. has the most and densest concentration of prisoners in the world comprising 24% of the 9 million global prisoners, more than Russia, the runner up, and more than China. For the U.S. to achieve the legal limit of 250 detainees per 100,000 the total number of local jails and state and federal prison beds must be limited to less than 740,000. One million is a good goal. Nearly 650,000 people are released from prison to communities each year. Each year the nation’s 3,200 jails release an excess of 10 million, 3% of the population back into the community. Nearly two thirds of released State prisoners are expected to re-arrested for a felony or a serious misdemeanor within three years. In 2005 7% of all prisoners were women, the number of women prisoners increased 2.6% while male prisoners rose 1.9%. Racial disparities among prisoners persist, particularly in the 25-29 age group, 8.1% of black men, about one in 13, were behind bars, compared with 2.6% of Hispanic men and 1.1% of white men. To enforce a legal limit of 250 prisoners per 100,000 residents, create an SSI financed halfway house system of renters to achieve the legal limit over 10 years at a cost of $1.3 billion (2012) or up to 7.7% of SSI program costs, to transfer the entire federal Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) and other extra-jurisdictional judicial financing to community corrections programs, to purchase 59,000 halfway houses from foreclosure auctions over 10 years, retrain 207,090 trained, full-time parole and probation officers and social workers…856
