Federal Criminal Statutes Violated In

Blocking Reporting High-Level Corruption

Criminal Statutes Violated by the Corruption,


The Cover-Ups, and Retaliation
The following are among the federal criminal statutes that were involved in a long series of
corrupt actions related directly or indirectly to a instances of great harm, sometimes deaths,
and in catastrophic events imperiling the nation. These criminal violations were involved in the
multiple and parallel efforts during the past 25 years that involved key people in government
committing certain crimes, and Department of Justice personnel, federal judges, lawyers and
law firms, involved in documented obstruction of justice and criminal retaliatory acts seeking
to halt the exposure activities of former federal agent Rodney Stich and his coalition of other
government agents and insiders. Everything stated here is documented. And it is serious!

List of Statutes Involved in Multiple


Schemes by Multiple Parties
Title 18 U.S.C. § 2. Principals. (a) Whoever commits an offense against the United States
or aids, abets, counsels, commands, induces or procures its commission, is punishable as a
principal. (b) Whoever willfully causes an act to be done which if directly performed by him or
another would be an offense against the United States, is punishable as a principal.
Note: The legislative intent to punish as a principal not only one who directly commits an
offense and one who "aids, abets, counsels, commands, induces or procures" another to commit
an offense, but also anyone who causes the doing of an act which if done by him directly would
render him guilty of an offense against the United States. Case law decisions: Rothenburg v.
United States, 1918, 38 S.Ct. 18, 245 U.S. 480, 62 L.Ed. 414, and United States v. Giles, 1937,
57 S.Ct. 340, 300 U.S. 41, 81 L.Ed. 493.
[Aiding and abetting those committing the offenses that a former federal agent sought to report
including federal judges, California judges, federal prosecutors, and cooperating lawyers.]

Title 18 U.S.C. § 3. Accessory after the fact. Whoever, knowing that an offense against the
United States had been committed, receives, relieves, comforts or assists the offender in order to
hinder or prevent his apprehension, trial or punishment, is an accessory after the fact.
[Assisting those engaged in felonies were federal judges, federal prosecutors and cooperating
lawyers.]

Title 18 U.S.C. § 4. Misprision of felony. “Whoever, having knowledge of the actual


commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon
as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority
under the United States, shall be fined not more than $500 or imprisoned not more than three
years, or both.”
[An endless number of people knew of the felonies, and not only concealed their knowledge of
it, but some, as with federal judges, federal prosecutors, and cooperating lawyers, engaged in
fraudulent conduct against the person seeking to make the reports.]

Title 18 U.S.C. § 34. Penalty when death results. Whoever is convicted of any crime
prohibited by this chapter, which has resulted in the death of any person, shall be subject also to
the death penalty or to imprisonment.
[Misconduct that resulted in the deaths, or those who covered up for the misconduct, such as
those associated with an airline disaster.]

Title 18 U.S.C. § 35. A party who conveys false information, knowing it to be false, knowing
an attempt or alleged attempt being made that would be a crime under Chapter 97 or 111, which
pertain to aircraft and motor vehicles.
[Among the guilty in this respect were the key people who repeatedly falsified government
required records [at United Airlines] to falsely show that major safety requirements had been
performed when in fact they were not. Making this crime more serious, they were repeated
time and time again while fatal airline disasters were occurring due to the refusal to perform the
required safety actions

Title 18 U.S.C. § 111. Impeding certain officers or employees. Whoever ... intimidates, or
interferes with any person ... while engaged in ... the performance of his official duties shall be
fined ... or imprisoned ...
[These federal offenses repeatedly occurred in the government's aviation safety offices−and
throughout government.]

Title 18 U.S.C. § 153. Embezzlement by trustee or officer. Whoever knowingly and


fraudulently appropriates to his own use, embezzles, spends, or transfers any property or secretes
or destroys any document belonging to the estate of a debtor which came into his charge as
trustee ... shall be fined ... or imprisoned ... or both. Despite the embezzlement of over one
million dollars, possibly the nation's worst single-case Chapter 11 trustee embezzlement, Justice
Department officials refuse to investigate; move to dismiss every action filed by Stich seeking
injunctive relief from the embezzlement; and federal judges unlawfully and unconstitutional
dismiss every action addressing the embezzlement. The reason: Justice Department officials and
federal judges misused the ongoing Chapter 11 corruption against Stich, to carry out the scheme
commenced with the sham California action, continuing the pattern of civil, constitutional and
criminal violations.
[This crime was committed by U.S. Department of Justice trustee, Charles Duck, who corruptly
embezzled funds from such people as former government agent Rodney Stich when he was
forced to seek relief from the overwhelming schemes seeking to halt his exposure activities.]
Title 18 U.S.C. § 241. Conspiracy against rights of citizens. If two or more persons conspire to
injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any citizen in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right
or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his
having so exercised the same; ... They shall be fined ... or imprisoned ... or …
[Multiple schemes that meet the definition of a conspiracy to halt the exposure of high-level
corruption involved massive and repeated violations of civil rights by over 50 lawyers and
law firms, over a dozen California judges, over 50 federal judges, and an unknown number of
personnel from the U.S. Department of Justice.]

Title 18 U.S.C. § 242. Deprivation of rights under color of law. Whoever, under color of
any law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom, willfully subjects any person in any State,
Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or
immunities secured or protected by the
Constitution or laws of the United States, or to different punishment, pains, or penalties, on
account of such person being an alien, or by reason of his color, or race, than are prescribed for
the punishment of citizens, shall b fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or
both.
[That crime was repeatedly perpetrated by California judges, federal judges,
Department of Justice personnel, and lawyers, in parallel schemes to halt a former
federal agent from exposing high-level corruption.]

Title 18 U.S.C. 245((b)(1)(B). Federally protected activities. (b) Whoever, whether or not
acting under color of law, by force or threat of force willfully injures, intimidates or interferes
with, or attempts to injure, intimidate or interfere with—(1) any person because he is or has
been, or in order to intimidate such person or any other person or any class of persons from—(B)
participating in or enjoying any benefit, service, privilege, program, facility, or activity provided
or administered by the United States. (C) applying for or enjoying employment, or any perquisite
thereof, by any agency of the United States.
[Involved the repeated corrupt deprivation of the legal and constitutional rights of former federal
agent Rodney Stich as part of multiple and parallel schemes to halt his exposure of high-level
corruption.]

Title 18 U.S.C. § 371. Conspiracy to commit offense or to defraud United States.


If two or more persons conspire either to commit any offense against the United States, or to
defraud the United States, or any agency thereof, in any manner or for any purpose, and one or
more of such persons do any act to effect the object of the conspiracy, each shall be fined ... or
imprisoned ...PRIVATE
[Conspiracy to commit an offense or to defraud the United States includes the acts by federal
officials using their office to engage in criminal activities; that decreases the effectiveness and
respect for such agencies. Violated by officials in the FAA, NTSB, Transportation Department,
Justice Department officials; federal judges; and others. Case law relating to section 1001 defines
defrauding the United States as doing any act which decreases its effectiveness, causing the
agency to wrongfully act or not act on such writings or acts, or decreases the public confidence
in government offices.]

Title 18 U.S.C. § 1341. Frauds and swindles.


Whoever, having devised or intending to devise any scheme or artifice to defraud, or for
obtaining money or property by means of false or fraudulent pretenses, representations, or
promises, .... for the purpose of executing such scheme or artifice or attempting so to do, places
in any post office or authorized depository for mail matter, any matter or thing whatever to be
sent or delivered by the Postal Service, or takes or receives therefrom, any such matter or thing,
or knowingly causes to be delivered by mail according to the direction thereon, or at the place
at which it is directed to be delivered by the person to whom it is addressed, any such matter or
thing, shall be fined ... or imprisoned .... or both.
[This felony could possibly be argued as it related to the corrupt seizure and looting of the
$10 million in assets from former federal agent Rodney Stich as part of the scheme to halt his
exposure activities.]

Title 18 U.S.C. § 1343. Fraud by wire, radio, or television. Whoever, having devised or
intending to devise any scheme or artifice to defraud, or for obtaining money or property by
means of false or fraudulent pretenses, representations, or promises, transmits or causes to
be transmitted by means of wire, radio, or television communication in interstate or foreign
commerce, any writings, signs, signals, pictures, or sounds for the purpose of executing such
scheme or artifice, shall be fined not more than $1,000 or imprisoned …
[This felony could arise from the repeated use of telephones and fax machines by lawyers
and judges in the 25 years of continuous schemes seeking to halt his exposure of high-level
corruption.]

Title 18 USC § 1503. Influencing or injuring officer or juror generally. (a) Whoever
corruptly, or by threats or force, or by any threatening letter or communication, endeavors to
influence, intimidate, or impede any grand or petit juror, or officer in or of any court of the
United States, ... on account of the performance of his official duties, or corruptly or by threats
or force, or by any threatening letter or communication, influences, obstructs, or impedes, or
endeavors to influence, obstruct, or impede, the due administration of justice, shall be punished
as provided in subsection (b).
[This statute applies to the harm inflicted upon federal agent Rodney Stich and the many others
who sought to fight the corruption in government, and also applies to former federal agents
seeking to expose the corruption while private citizens.]

Title 18 U.S.C. § 1505. Whoever corruptly ... influences, obstructs, or impedes or endeavors
to influence, obstruct, or impede the due the proper administration of the law under which any
pending proceeding is being had before any department or agency of the United States ... shall be
fined not more than $5,000 or imprisoned not more than five years, or both.
Title 18 U.S.C. § 1505 applies to anyone who corruptly attempts by threats or force, or by
any threatening letter or communication, influence, obstruct, or impede the due and proper
administration of the law under which any pending proceeding is being had before any
department or agency of the United States. They do not have to succeed to have committed a
federal crime; the attempt or scheme (conspire) to do so is criminal.
[This felony repeatedly occurred as multiple schemes were used seeking to halt the exposure of
high-level corruption by former federal agent Rodney Stich.]

Title 18 USC § 1510. Obstruction of criminal investigations. (a) Whoever willfully


endeavors by means of bribery to obstruct, delay, or prevent the communication
of information relating to a violation of any criminal statute of the United
States by any person to a criminal investigator shall be fined under this title, or
imprisoned not more than five years, or both.

[The repeated occurrence of this felony involved federal judges, Department of Justice
employees, and cooperating lawyers and law firms.]

18 USC § 1512. Tampering with a witness, victim, or an informant.

(b) Whoever knowingly uses intimidation or physical force, threatens, or corruptly persuades
another person, or attempts to do so, or engages in misleading conduct toward another person,
with intent to–(3) hinder, delay, or prevent the communication to a law enforcement officer or
judge of the United States of information relating to the commission or possible commission of a
Federal offense ... shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both.

(c) Whoever intentionally harasses another person and thereby hinders, delays, prevents,
or dissuades any person from–(2) reporting to a law enforcement officer or judge of the United
States the commission or possible commission of a Federal offense.

[This crime was repeatedly perpetrated by federal judges, employees of the U.S. Department of
Justice, and assisted by lawyers and California judges.]
Title 18 U.S.C. § 1513. Retaliating against a witness, victim, or an informant. (b) Whoever
knowingly engages in any conduct and thereby causes bodily injury to another person or
damages the tangible property of another person, or threatens to do so, with intent to retaliate
against any person for──(1) the attendance of a witness or party at an official proceeding, or any
testimony given or any record, document, or other object produced by a witness in an official
proceeding; or (2) any information relating to the commission or possible commission of a
Federal offense ...

[This felony involved the criminal contempt of court charges by federal judges and Department
of Justice prosecutors for having attempted to report criminal activities of people in key
government positions. That felony was compounded by the fact that the former federal agent, or
anyone, knowing of a federal crime, had to report such felony to a federal judge or other federal
officer. By blocking those reports, the federal prosecutor (David Levi, Sacramento) and federal
judges were committing felonies related to obstruction of justice.]

Title 18 U.S.C. § 1514. Civil action to restrain harassment of a victim or witness. (a)(1) A
United States district court, upon application of the attorney for the government, shall issue a
temporary restraining order prohibiting harassment of a victim or witness in a Federal criminal
\case if the court finds, from specific facts shown by affidavit or by verified complaint, that there
are reasonable grounds to believe that harassment of an identified victim or witness in a Federal
criminal case exists or that such order is necessary to prevent and restrain an offense under
section 1512 of this title, other than an offense consisting of misleading conduct, or under section
1513 of this title.

Title 18 USC § 1951. Interference with commerce by threats or violence. (a)


Whoever in any way or degree obstructs, delays, or affects commerce or the movement
of any article or commodity in commerce, by robbery or extortion or attempts or
conspires so to do, or commits or threatens physical violence to any person or property
in furtherance of a plan or purpose to do anything in violation of this section shall be
fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.

[That violation occurred numerous times (and is common in government departments)


while Rodney Stich was a key federal airline safety inspector, and then as other people
took various actions against him to halt his exposure of the corrupt activities resulting in
a continuing series of airline disasters.]

Racketeering Enterprise Activities


Title 42 USC ' 1961. Definition. As used in this chapter-(1) "racketeering
activity" means (A) any act or threat involving ... relating to 1503 (relating
to obstruction of justice), section 1510 (relating to obstruction of criminal
investigations), section 1511 (relating to obstruction of State or local
law enforcement), section 1951 (relating to interference with commerce,
robbery or extortion), section 1952 (relating to racketeering)
[This felony was repeatedly committed during the many years of corrupt
activities seeking to halt the exposure of high-level corruption of key people
in government. The felonious conduct involved Department of Justice
employees, federal judges, lawyers and California judges−all acting with
the same goal: obstruct justice by silencing the former federal agents.]

Title 42 USC ' 1962. Prohibited Activities. (b) It shall be unlawful for any
person through a pattern or racketeering activity or through collection of
an unlawful debt to acquire or maintain, directly or indirectly, any interest
in or control of any enterprise which is engaged in, or the activities of
which affect, interstate or foreign commerce. (c) It shall be unlawful for any
person employed by or associated with any enterprise engaged in, or the
activities of which affect, to conduct or participate, directly or indirectly, in
the conduct of such enterprise's affairs through a pattern of racketeering
activity or collection of unlawful debt. d) It shall be unlawful for any person
to conspire to violate any of the provisions of subsections (a), (b), or (c) of
this section. ...

Title 42 USC § 1985. Conspiracy to interfere with civil rights. (2) Obstructing justice;
intimidating party, witness, or juror. If two or more persons in any State or Territory conspire
to deter, by force, intimidation, or threat, any party or witness in any court of the United States
from attending such court, or from testifying to any matter pending therein, freely, fully, and
truthfully, or to injure such party or witness in his person or property on account of his having
so attended or testified, or to influence the verdict, presentment, or indictment of any grand
or petit juror in any such court, or to injure such juror in his person or property on account of
any verdict, presentment, or indictment lawfully assented to by him, or of his being or having
been such juror; or if two or more persons conspire for the purpose of impeding, hindering,
obstructing, or defeating, in any manner, the due course of justice in any State or Territory, with
intent to deny to any citizen the equal protection of the law, or to injure him or his property for
lawfully enforcing, or attempting to enforce, the right of any person, or class of persons, to the
equal protection of the laws;
[Massive and repeated violations of civil rights were involved with the attempts by lawyers,
California judges, and federal judges to halt the exposure of high-level corruption.]

Title 42 U.S.C. § 1986. Every person who, having knowledge that any of the wrongs
conspired to be done, and mentioned in the preceding section [42 USCS § 1985],
are about to be committed, and having power to prevent or aid in preventing the
commission of the same, neglects or refuses to do so, if such wrongful act be
committed, shall be liable to the party injured, or his legal representatives, for all
damages caused by such wrongful act, which such person by reasonable diligence
could have prevented; and such damages may be recovered in an action on the case;
and any number of persons guilty of such wrongful neglect or refusal may be joined as
defendants in the action, and if the death of any party be caused by any such wrongful
act and neglect, the legal representatives of the deceased shall have such action
therefore, and may recover not exceeding five thousand dollars damages therein, for
the benefit of the widow of the deceased, if there be one, and if there be no widow, then
for the benefit of the next of kin of the deceased. But no action under the provisions of
this section shall be sustained which is not commenced within one year after the cause
of action has accrued.
[The people who knew of these repeated violations included, for instance, many
members of Congress and other government departments, such as the Department of
Justice civil rights division, that failed to act.]

Sampling of Criminal Activities


Blocked by Conspirators
Among the pattern of corrupt and criminal actions described by government insiders in
the list of books that they either wrote or contributed to are the following, which meats
the definition of one or more of the about federal offenses:
● Drug smuggling into the United States by people in the CIA or closely related
to the CIA, and the many government people in other government offices and
operations who knew of the criminal activities. (Details in Drugging America and
Defrauding America.)

● October Surprise, being a scheme involving Reagan-Bush, CIA personnel,
including Casey, to subvert the 1990 presidential elections between President
Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan. The scheme involved secretly arming Iran to
delay the release of 52 American hostages held by Iran. (Details in Defrauding
America.)

● Looting of the savings and loans−as predicted when the controls were taken off
by the Regan administration−and the involvement of CIA personnel in the looting.
(Details in Defrauding America and the more recent housing and financial frauds
described in America's Housing and Financial Frauds.)

● Massive fraud in the bankruptcy courts involving federal judges, federal trustees,
lawyers, victimizing people and companies who exercise the statutory protections
of Chapter 11. (Details in Defrauding America and to some extent in Unfriendly
Skies: 20th & 21st Centuries, as used to silence a former federal agent.]

● Millions of people incarcerated, many on false charges with known perjury
demanded by prosecutors. (Details in Drugging America.)

● Seizing of people's assets in asset forfeiture actions, including people never
charged with any offense and people found innocent.

● Widespread bribery involving members of Congress.

● Corruption in state and federal courts, the self-serving immunity given to
themselves by federal judges engaging in fraud, corruption, and other crimes.

● Misusing the courts and judicial positions to block reporting and exposure of
crimes against the Untied States.

Sampling of Catastrophic Events


Related to the Reported Criminal Activities And
Enabled by Attacks Upon Whistleblower
As a result of the widespread corruption in overt and covert government operations, the
systemic cover-ups that treat high-level corruption as the "third-rail," and the retaliation against
whistleblowers, great American tragedies have repeatedly occurred, and will continue to occur.

● Harm to the American public in non-violent areas.

● Harm to people of other countries.

● Harm to the few people in the United States fighting the high-level corruption
in a meaningful manner.

● Harm in general.

Sampling of Early Consequences


TWA Flight 800
U.S. Embassy Bombings

9/11 Easily-Preventable Multiple Hijackings


These few examples of the horrors associated with airline disasters enabled to occur by
documented corruption withheld from the American people. The standard culture of cover-
ups in the United States enabled the corruption, cover-ups, to mutate into different areas. In the
aviation area, although the continuing series of airline disasters eventually came to a halt for
other reasons, the culture continued, and enabled to occur a number of easily preventable airline
disasters. The inbred culture created the conditions that enabled four groups of terrorists to easily
hijack four airliners within a few hours of each other and kill nearly 3,000 people.
One of Over 200 Victims Choosing This Way to Die—
Made Possible by Many Enablers in United States
Consequences of Corruption, Cover-Ups, And
Retaliation Felonies Not Limited to Aviation

There were many other forms of victims from the systemic high-level corruption.
These included for instance victims of the:

● Department of Justice prosecutorial misconduct, people being falsely charges with
crimes in order to improve the prosecutors' career.

● The explosion of violent crime related to drug smuggling into the United States, in
which CIA assets were major players.

● Series of financial frauds appearing every few years, with the latest housing and
financial implosions surfacing in 2008.

● Seizure of assets from innocent people.

● And many other forms.
These offenses are described in the books written by insiders.
Corruption of the Type Described at this site does not occur in a vacuum. High-level corruption
in one area is simply one tentacle of a widespread culture of corruption. And the consequences
of that corruption−and the endemic cover-ups−have consequences in other areas. The culture of
corruption affects the people and the nation in many other ways, That includes the latest series
of financial frauds that has occurred in the housing and financial sectors. Also, the effect of the
endemic corruption and endemic cover-ups−major parts of the culture in the United States−that
enablers successful terrorist attacks upon U.S. interests.
Harm to People Overseas From Culture Of
High-Level Corruption and Lies in the United States
In addition to the decades of harm resulting from the systemic corruption of key
people and groups in the U.S. government, affecting aviation safety, financial,
human rights, in the United States, there is the harm from outside sources brought
about by the actions of U.S. politicians affecting people in other countries—
such as the history of invading and killing foreigners—there are the
successful "terrorist" attacks made possible by high-level corruption, and then there are
the foreigners who are also victims from the same high-level corruption that
adversely affects the American, but in a different form.
Remains of a girl—about the age of the 9-year-old Killed in Tucson in January 2011.
In criminal law, people are accomplices, and guilty, if they know of a criminal act and fail
to report it to proper authorities and also to take efforts within their capability to halt their
continuation. And there are endless numbers of accomplices that are complicit in these crimes
and enablers of the consequences.
Suggestion to people outside the United States. Become familiar with the documented systemic
corruption in the United States and show the outrage lacking of people in the United States, and:

● Help expose the endemic corruption that seem to be acceptable to the American people,
and maybe wake them up.

● Help to protect yourselves against the decades of ham inflicted upon people of
other countries by the actions of U.S. politicians—supported by much of the
American public. Examples:


○ Serial lying by U.S. politicians to use as a pretense to
invade Iraq and Afghanistan, killing tens of thousands of innocent
people.

○ U.S. politicians shifting enabling blame from their own
corrupt actions that encouraged and enabled four groups of
terrorists to simultaneously hijack four airliners, and shift the blame
to the people of Iraq and Afghanistan—with the help of a
dumbed-down American public that is mostly too lazy to learn the truth.

Thanks to the Very Few Who Care Enough


Thanks are given to those very very few who have contributed funds to the non-profit
