The following text is from the Facebook page of Montgomery County Commissioner Bruce Castor. A post from December 31, 2014. ( Click for Picture )
The post presents an angry, frightening and chilling picture of Mr. Castor’s mindset.
A prosecutor for 22 years, including two terms as District Attorney, who has served as President of the Pennsylvania District Attorneys Association. Castor believes he has attained a sterling reputation for pursuing truth, justice, and accountability in public office.
Interesting analysis penned by Brad Bumsted of the Trib on the AG Kane series of issues.
I have seen what is happening to Mrs. Kane happen before. Our state’s top law enforcer declared war on the competence of career prosecutors but failed to understand that those she picked a fight with know how to fight back.
I’ve seen it happen numerous times and I marvel at how the “bully” doesn’t see it.
While the oft quoted adage involving newspapers: “you don’t go to war with a group that buys ink by the barrel…” may be a cliche, as is often the case with cliches, it became one because it is true.
A similar, perhaps soon to be cliche, might go “you don’t go to war with a person who spends his/her professional life figuring how to [screw] others…”
If General Kane had achieved that level of professional expertise coming up through the prosecutorial ranks (not to denigrate the successes she did have in the trenches, but there is a difference between a line prosecutor, and a seasoned veteran of investigations and multi-faceted prosecutions that take months, if not years, to build, and hundreds of hours to prepare), she might have thought twice about engaging in this battle.
It is beyond question that she has lost.
What is in doubt is how badly, and what the fallout will be.
Career lawmen think strategically. They don’t go for the immediate gratification of a personal attack, instead preferring to set the board up just right and striking at the precise moment where the object of the attack cannot recover.
I do not see how it is possible for Mrs. Kane to recover, as she is warring with not only newspapers (ink by the barrel) but also against professionals who really know their business.
I’ve witnessed a long line of politicians who have picked fights like this for short term personal or political benefit. I can’t recall any that have managed to avoid being hurt far more seriously for having done so.
The irony is I have also seen the “doubling down” behavior exhibited by Mrs. Kane backfire time and again with politicians who want to continue the fight. Very damaging, as inevitably civil war ensues while the opposing party fills the vacuum.
The moral: don’t pick a political fight against someone schooled in how to really hurt you.
|An immediate reaction was not posted, as perhaps Mr. Castor had started his New Year’s Eve celebration early.
There has been time for Mr. Castor to consider his post, and to edit or delete it.
I will now address the twisted mindset of the Commissioner.
I do so as a person who has been denied the protection of the law while my civil and constitutional rights have been ignored in Montgomery County since 2007. The terror of my experience, and the destruction of every aspect of my life has lead to the finding of an unconstitutional law which causes, permits, excuses and ignores injustice. Even after finding the unconstitutional ‘law’, the injustice and lawlessness has continued the unrelenting attack upon my life, my family and my freedom.
I stood before Mr Castor in October 2013 and presented the unconstitutional law publicly asking for the Montgomery County Commissioners to assist in removing the law and preventing further injustice. Mr. Castor did nothing.
Where this law had affected myself, the children and families of the Luzerne County Cash for Kids scandal, and over 45 million homeowners nationwide affected by fraudulent foreclosures using false and robosigned documents, Mr Castor’s ‘sterling reputation for pursuing truth, justice, and accountability in public office’ existed only in his biography and in his imagination.
I did not pick any fight, I requested the proper actions of law enforcement and I was IGNORED.
I expected proper procedures, protection of the law and justice to be served by the courts and I was IGNORED.
My survival and perseverance through the crimes, allegations, investigations and injustices was perceived as ‘engaging in battle’ by those who Castor’s New Years Warning describes as those who “know how to fight back.”
The people “who spends his/her professional life figuring how to [screw] others…” Where losing, how badly and what the fallout would be was the loss of every aspect of my existence – family, career, friends, possessions, home.
“Career lawmen think strategically. They don’t go for the immediate gratification of a personal attack, instead preferring to set the board up just right and striking at the precise moment where the object of the attack cannot recover.” Their strategic thinking was undone by my sincerity, my perseverance, the truth and an ability to foresee the unimaginable and survive the unavoidable.
Those “schooled in how to hurt” me, or anyone, possess a character so flawed by corruption, injustice and conspiracy that they are not capable of recognizing that my effort to remove an unconstitutional law also relieves them of the burden of it’s mandate. A mandate which has corrupted an entire profession by requiring silence in the face of the most malicious injustice.
Castor’s twisted and angry attacks against Attorney General Kathleen Kane are motivated by the shame and humiliation of his own actions and the actions of his profession.
Castor is likely aware of the efforts of two secret court orders which prevent Attorney General Kathleen Kane from her responsibilities and mandate she neglect involvement even where required by law. These orders directly affect my litigation and my life as the involvement of the Attorney General in the matter is a necessity.
The Montgomery County Grand Jury called the attorney general into their investigation, as such the attorney general is expected to respect the secrecy requested and is not discussing the topic. The attorney general is ALSO prevented from correcting the misinformation being presented by the news media regarding the grand jury which is speculative information at best. Where a grand jury can be utilized to secure and prevent confidential information and records, I am greatly concerned that their effort seeks to conceal and prevent exposure of the involvement of county resources, personnel and departments which affect current and future litigation.
A Special Prosecutor may be requested to testify about the grand jury process, however, in the case of this grand jury, Thomas Carluccio would likely be excused from any testimony which would implicate his wife, Judge Carolyn Tornetta Carluccio, in criminal and unconstitutional actions. Carluccio’s selection to conduct the grand jury seems to be the type of ‘strategic’ move ‘setting the board up’ as you indicated ‘where the object of the attack cannot recover.”
District Attorney Risa Ferman has ignored the reports and criminal complaints. DA Ferman has instructed her detectives NOT to investigate multiple crimes, including identity theft, breaking and entering, burglary, child endangerment, fraudulent conveyance of property etc. The District Attorney has IGNORED EVERY CRIME against me since 2007, while 20 members of the Montgomery County Judiciary have heard the case. The judiciary has neglected to enforce my wife’s compliance with ANY AND EVERY Court Order – while holding me to the most strict written (AND UNWRITTEN) statements.
Where the actions of the judiciary have caused a clear absence of subject matter jurisdiction, absolute judicial immunity is not available to prevent their liability for their corruption. As such, they IGNORE.
Mr. Castor, you have participated in a conspiracy of injustice of massive proportions. As lawyer, prosecutor, district attorney and public official, you should be humiliated and ashamed of your actions and the conspiracy to conceal your efforts. The very last thing you should be doing currently is avoiding you own advice. DON’T BE THE POLITICIAN WHO WISHES TO CONTINUE A FIGHT ON THE WRONG SIDE OF JUSTICE.
DON’T BE THE LOUDMOUTH OR THE BULLY WHO INTERJECTS HIMSELF INTO A SITUATION WHERE HE IS NOT PROPERLY INFORMED.
DON’T INTERJECT YOUR RHETORIC AND MISINFORMATION TO PREVENT LAWFUL ACTIONS TO ADDRESS A CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS WHICH HAS AFFECTED THE ENTIRE UNITED STATES.
DON’T PICK A FIGHT WITH SOMEONE WHO HAS ALREADY LOST EVERYTHING AND IS FIGHTING FOR HIS SURVIVAL.
– WHERE YOU CANNOT IMAGINE THE TERROR OF LIFE WITHOUT ANY PROTECTION OF THE LAW AND WITHOUT CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS, AND
– WHERE YOU CANNOT IMAGINE HOW A MAN COULD PERSEVERE AND BELIEVE IN JUSTICE ACTING WITH GENUINE HOPE AND A BELIEF IN JUSTICE WHICH PERMITS HIM TO NOT HATE THE LAWYERS, BUT TO HATE THE UNETHICAL UNCONSTITUTIONAL LAW WHICH HAS CAUSED THE ENTIRE LEGAL PROFESSION GREAT EMBARRASSMENT.
Your Resignation is appropriate.
Then, recognizing your twisted and perverted abuse of power, and the corruption which you attempt to protect and defend, and your angry attacks against the elected officials who are taking their oath of office and their responsibilities seriously.
Compose a concise letter of resignation where you set your ego aside and apologize to the people you have hurt throughout your career and those families affected by the suicides caused by ignored injustice.
You may want to Thank Attorney General Kathleen Kane. She’s going to restore the reputation of lawyers and the integrity of the judiciary not only in Pennsylvania, but nationwide.
“I knew that I was walking into public corruption. Which again is why I ran.”
“But I will tell you this. Even I am shocked at the level of public corruption.”
“I am shocked at how deep it goes.
I am shocked at how powerful it is.
I have never seen anything like this. It’s breathtaking.
It has been described by the people familiar with what is happening as shameful.”
“But, if this can be done to me as Attorney General, the chief law enforcement officer of the 5th largest state in the country, I am sickened to think what can and may be done to regular, good people who don’t have the resources that I have to challenge it.”
AG Kane acknowledged that the grand jury’s work is “something that’s been on my mind. But I’m very confident that the truth will come out and that justice will prevail.”
JUSTICE IS COMING.
