As a country we are unfortunately at a point in time where the federal judiciary has in all reality turned itself into a criminal enterprise system with the chief judges of the circuits serving in the role of head of the syndicate of the circuit. The definition of organized crime is a national centralized enterprise run by criminals to engage in illegal activity. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit in Chicago fits this definition.
In February 2018, retired Judge Richard A. Posner appointed me to serve as the executive director of the Posner Center of Justice for Pro Se’s and in March 2018, I traveled to Chicago to meet Judge Posner for lunch where Judge Posner disclosed to me that during the pendency of my appeal of a civil rights case against Valparaiso Indiana police years ago that Judge Michael S. Kanne had initiated an ex parte conversation with Judge Posner and called me a "troublemaker" and that Kanne "had it in for" me. Judge Posner then disclosed to me that Judge Kanne had asked Judge Posner in ex parte fashion — as a "favor" to Judge Kanne — to make sure that I did not prevail in my appeal against the Valparaiso police as Judge Posner was on the panel, to which Kanne was not. Judge Posner admitted that, regrettably, he (Judge Posner) had succumbed to Kanne's "pressure" and therefore had accommodated Kanne's "request" to have the district court's decision in favor of the Valparaiso police affirmed even though Judge Posner knew that it "should have been reversed." Judge Posner added that he knew what he did "was wrong," but that this was "something that judges did for one another from time to time." Judge Posner then acknowledged to me that, because Kanne was a "corrupt judge" who fixed cases, Kanne should have never been a member of the federal judiciary.
On September 30, 2021, the so called Judicial Council of the Seventh Circuit via Chief Judge Diane S. Sykes issued a Memorandum and Order dismissing my judicial-misconduct complaint against Kanne in a very questionable and troubling fashion in many different ways. The order didn’t show the names of the judges, only Sykes’ name was shown. These undisclosed judicial cowards wrote that “when a complaint is filed so long after an alleged event that memory loss, death, or changes to unknown residences prevent a proper investigation”. That was utter hogwash because Sykes and her judicial minions didn’t point to any evidence of “memory loss”, or evidence of “death”, or evidence of “changes to unknown residences” that would “prevent a proper investigation.” And in addition to that hogwash, the Seventh Circuit well knows that there is no statute of limitations for filing a judicial-misconduct complaint.
The reason that the Seventh Circuit’s statements were hogwash is because Kanne currently is still a member of the Seventh Circuit, so there should be no problem with his “memory” as he would have to have a functioning memory to be able to function as a judge. And since Kanne is still a member of the Seventh Circuit, he obviously isn’t dead, so that certainly isn’t a factor. And since Kanne currently is still a member of the Seventh Circuit, there shouldn’t be any problem in locating him for an interview as to the allegations against him. And although Judge Posner is no longer a member of the Court, he still lives in Chicago and, thus, could very easily be interviewed with regard to the allegations. In asserting that any investigation would be "impractical" due to the passage of time, since the key players are available to be interviewed clearly shows that the Seventh Circuit's interest is not in getting to the bottom of what happened with Kanne's fixing of the decision, but rather shows the Seventh Circuit's interest in sweeping Kanne's corrupt activities under the rug, which actually constitutes the aiding and abetting of a crime which is a violation of the laws of the United States.
The conduct of Judge Diane S. Sykes and her undisclosed judicial minions who participated in the infected so called “Memorandum and Order” by undisclosed judges dismissing the complaint against Michael S. Kanne, without seeking a written response from Kanne, and without interviewing Judge Posner who disclosed Kanne’s case fixing conduct, constitutes clear evidence of a cover up by the Seventh Circuit of Kanne’s criminal activities of having the decision fixed just as Judge Posner disclosed. It is very noteworthy that Michael S. Kanne has not denied the allegations of his case fixing activities that have been clearly stated in the judicial-misconduct complaint against him supported by affidavit.
It is not surprising that Sykes and her undisclosed minions didn’t explain why they didn’t take action on my request to request that the Chief Justice of the United States transfer the proceeding to the judicial council of another circuit pursuant to Rule 26 given that the complaint implicates criminal activities in the Seventh Circuit to which Sykes and her unidentified minions continue to engage in criminal conduct by way of their protectionism of Michael S. Kanne’s case fixing activities which are criminal violations of federal law. According to the Supreme Court, any judge who does not comply with his/her oath to the Constitution of the United States wars against that Constitution and engages in acts in violation of the Supreme Law of the Land. The judge is engaged in an act of acts of treason. S. v. Will, 449 U.S. 200, 216, 101 S.Ct. 471, 66 L.Ed.2d 392, 406 (1980); Cohens v. Virginia, 19 U.S. (6 Wheat) 264, 404, 5 L.Ed. 257 (1821). This makes Sykes’ and her judicial minions treasonous judges according to the Supreme Court’s precedent.
The Seventh Circuit’s protectionism under the leadership of Chief Judge Diane S. Sykes and her judicial minions of Michael S. Kanne’s criminal conduct of having a decision fixed in violation of the United States laws renders the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit as a criminal enterprise pursuant to the standards that the Seventh Circuit itself set in U.S. v. Murphy, 768 F.2d 1518, 1531 (7th Cir. 1985) when the Seventh Circuit held that the Circuit Court of Cook County was a criminal enterprise by virtue of the judges’ failure to report the criminal activities of other judges, just as Chief Judge Diane S. Sykes and her undisclosed judicial minions have likewise failed to report the criminal activities of Michael S. Kanne and are in fact currently still involved in an attempted cover-up of Michael S. Kanne’s criminal activities, as disclosed by Judge Posner, which is precisely why Sykes and her minions chose not to ask the Chief Judge of the United States to transfer the proceeding to the judicial council of another circuit and instead chose to keep Kanne’s criminal activities in house where Kanne's compadres could protect him from the appropriate punishment that should be handed to him for his criminal activities of having a decision fixed in violation of the United States laws. If the feds would investigate Sykes and her judicial minions, and Kanne, they would easily find criminal violations under 18 U.S. Code Sec. 2, 18 U.S. Code Sec. 3 and 18 U.S. Code Sec. 4.
The conduct of Diane S. Sykes and her unidentified judicial minions in submitting false statements in the memorandum and order falsely purporting that I didn’t provide an explanation for why I didn’t “immediately” file my complaint against Kanne, when I certainly did provide an explanation, demonstrates Sykes’ and her unidentified judicial minions’ willingness to falsify information on an official order of judicial business to which falsification of information was done to conceal and protect the criminal activities of Michael S. Kanne, along with the other matters of impropriety by Diane S. Sykes and her unidentified judicial minions in the sham proceeding, renders Diane S. Sykes and her unidentified judicial minions, criminals under the laws of the United States as an accessory after the fact under 18 U.S. Code Sec. 3. And by Diane S. Sykes’ and her judicial minions’ knowledge of Michael S. Kanne’s criminal activities in having the decision fixed, which Kanne has not denied in this proceeding, and by Diane S. Sykes’ and her unidentified judicial minions’ concealment of Kanne’s criminal activities by not making Kanne’s felonious conduct known to some judge or other person in civil authority, renders Diane S. Sykes and her unidentified judicial minions who were complicit in the cover-up, criminals under 18 U.S. Code Sec. 4.
Diane S. Sykes has been mentioned as a possible United States Supreme Court nominee, but certainly, since Sykes has so dangerously abused her power by spearheading a cover up of Kanne’s criminal conduct in fixing a decision, Sykes is therefore disqualified from any future consideration for an appointment to the United States Supreme Court. "The greater the power, the more dangerous the abuse" ~ Edmund Burke.
Unfortunately we have an asleep at the wheel attorney general in Merrick Garland who has a demonstrated propensity to protect judicial corruption since he looked the other way when he was a judge as well. https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2016/03/time-merrick-garland-was-accused-protecting-fellow-judge-charged-ethics-violations/. Because of the lack of credibility in the Department of Justice, federal judges know they can get away with corruptions such as the corruption taking place in the Seventh Circuit. Perhaps somewhere down the road we might actually end up with an attorney general who will have no problem with handcuffing and prosecuting the criminals wearing the black robes at the U.S. Court of Appeals in Chicago. Until then, the stench will continue on in the Seventh Circuit in Chicago.
