SHERMAN SKOLNICK'S RECORDED MESSAGE
(December 9, 1996; Transcription by Conspiracy Nation)
Hi! Sherman Skolnick, Citizens' Committee to Clean Up the
Courts, 9800 South Oglesby.
The major court corruption is in the Federal Appeals Court, in
major cities, like Chicago. The undisputed court record shows it
is day; the crooked panel of Appeals Court judges says it is
night, and they make a crooked ruling favoring a bank or large
Hearing a lot of this are key federal appeals judges in Chicago:
Chief Judge Richard A. Posner (office, 312-435-5806) and his
sidekick, Judge Frank H. Easterbrook (312-435-5808) -- both, once
law professors at Rockefeller's University of Chicago. Posner, a
judge, continues to reportedly represent that university's
billion dollar stock portfolio fund. Posner and Easterbrook
promote an unusual theory of law, called "Economic Efficiency."
That is, an underdog should not be allowed, in court, to prevail
in discrimination and other damage suits against multi-national
pirates. It hurts profits!
These two judges, and their gang, issue rulings falsifying the
facts. Such as in a big bucks anti-Trust case against Western
Union. Some lawyers were nearly destroyed when they blew the
In 1991, I was the only journalist at an Appeals Court hearing
involving the records of the Chicago branch of Italy's largest
bank: Banca Nazionale del Lavoro [BNL], owned in part by the
Pope. Afterwards, I interviewed two participants who confirmed
that secret records showed George Bush, then President, was the
private business partner of Saddam Hussein, the Iraqi strongman.
They showed billions of dollars of oil kick-backs from the
militarily-weak producers in the Persian Gulf. It could have
been the largest tax-evasion case in U.S. history -- against
Before his later ruling, the Bush Justice Department leaked out
details that Judge Posner had taken bribes in 8 other cases.
(Being on the ball, we already knew about that.) Once
blackmailed, Judge Posner ruled the BNL case should be removed
from the courthouse. Only one smaller newspaper ran my exclusive
Before becoming a judge, Posner ran a litigation services firm.
In plain language, he was a bagman and a fixer. He was also
chief anti-Trust consultant to CBS. Then, as judge, he refused
to disqualify himself in an important anti-Trust case involving
CBS. Hey! Guess who won!?
In the early 1970s, our work led to the jailing, for bribery, of
Posner's predecessor, Chicago federal appeals judge Otto Kerner,
Jr. Since forming this group in 1963, I have been falsely jailed
for contempt, wheelchair and all, by corrupt judges who I
directly accused of bribery. Judge Easterbrook, at the behest of
his crony, Chief Judge Posner, are ordering me and an associate
of mine to be barred from their court, the U.S. Court of Appeals,
7th Circuit, Chicago. It revolves around our case, where a
Mafia-linked sheriff, at gunpoint, stopped our on-location cable
TV production. We were making a video of the sheriff's people
breaking into my associate's (Joseph Andreuccetti) home and
stealing our cable TV tapes and documents relating to federal
From what is happening, it appears that this gang of crooked
federal judges and bankers is preparing to falsely jail us for
contempt. Public outcry can stop them.
If you know about other examples of corruption of Judges Posner
and Easterbrook and their mob, write to the Citizens Committee to
Clean Up the Courts, 9800 South Oglesby Ave., Chicago, IL 60617.

Howard Hunt, wife of the Watergate burglar. One of the first to

in his downfall, 1973. Investigation and disclosure causing the
jailing for bribery of the highest level sitting federal judge in
American history, Chicago Federal Appeals Judge Otto Kerner, Jr.,
1973. Touching off "Operation Greylord," in which 20 local
judges and 40 lawyers jailed for bribery, 1983-1993.
