Response To Corrupt Court

When judicial figures come together under the color of law to lie about it, they demean the very forms that their ritual is supposed to uphold and reinforce.

It would be an honest act to admit what my wife said at the end of my 2002 trial: “There is no justice for Ira Einhorn in Philadelphia.”

By lie and subterfuge, by twisting words and refusing to rule upon an obvious unconstitutional law (The Einhorn Law), the superior Court of Pennsylvania extended the statement that my wife made to Pennsylvania.

The denigration of law, the destruction of our constitution (one of the great documents in human history) under the aegis of executive order has brought international shame to our countries’ name.

Such behavior is now being echoed in local jurisdictions throughout the land.

When judges make a travesty of the law they are tearing apart the fabric of our society, they are making a mockery of those whose blood was shed in the process of creating our precious freedoms and invoking forces of social dissolution that will eventually lead to future bloodshed.

Dear Bill and Mitch:

After much consideration, I have decided not to allow you to go any further with my case.


To have three major issues waved on a case of this import is indicative of how ineffective you have been.

Consciously or unconsciously you have provided the court with a way to avoid ruling on two golden issues:

1. The Einhorn Law.

2. The handing over of my journals (taken and held under warrant) to a journalist.
Your advocacy is a joke in legal circles.

You have not listened.

You have not communicated.

Mitch has returned hundreds of hours of legal research unopened.


You have wasted enough of the taxpayer’s money.

Do not waste any more.

This letter will be given wide circulation.

A victim of your in competency,

Ira Einhorn

The following brief comment is a response to: “The Megacity: Decoding the Chaos of Lagos,” by George Parker, New Yorker, November 13, 2006

Note: George Parker’s first hand reports from Iraq were a model of informative journalism and an adumbration the debacle that we have brought upon ourselves and the Iraqis. His book The Assassins' Gate: America in Iraq is now in paperback.

I picked up the above titled article while rereading Dante.

Packer’s description of present day Lagos chilled me as much as Dante’s. Contemporary Lagos is indeed hell on earth and Packer’s article is full of descriptions that would not be out of place in Dante’s Inferno.

Worse, however, are the western intellectuals who are now feeding off of Lagos and other megacities without any real on the ground knowledge. A ‘perverse” phenomenon that I wish to note as the problems of a declining America increasingly need the attention and concern that Africa and other parts of the world are now receiving.

Stuart Brand, the founder of the Whole Earth Catalogue is quoted as follows: “Squatter cities are vibrant .. each narrow street is one bustling market.” He seems to think that the horrors that Packer describes is a “cure for third world poverty and an extraordinary profit making opportunity.,” [Packer’s worlds].

I found Brand’s enthusiasm ridiculous in light of Packer’s description from the actual experience of Lagos.

Rem Koolhaas, a leading designer/architect is worse: he and his team were so intimidated by Lagos that they were afraid to leave their car on their first visit. They then rented the president’s helicopter. Things obviously looked better from the air:

“From the air, the apparently burning garbage head turned out to be, in fact, a village, an urban phenomenon with a highly organized community living on it s crust...what seemed from above an accumulation of dysfunctional movements, seemed from above an impressive performance, evidence of how well Lagos might perform if it were the third largest city in the world.” [Rem Koolhaas]

Packer’s comment on this idiocy: “The impulse to look at an “apparently burning garbage heap/’ and see an “urban phenomenon,’ and then make it the raw material of an elaborate aesthetic construct, is not so different from the more common impulse not to look at all.”

An impulse that seems to be rampant in the world as the data from global warming piles up and the wave of destruction that it is ushering in gathers strength.

Think I’m exaggerating; see for yourself.

Google: The Revenge of Gaia by James Lovelock and then perhaps read the book.


The right to express an opinion is a precious right protected by the first amendment. That amendment and the nine others that form the Bill of Rights was given to our nation very early in its existence by the assiduous work done by James Madison; a man who is finally being given his historical due. Our other rights enumerated in the first ten amendments to the constitution, are slowly being rendered null buy the fear mongering that W and his ilk had been using to destroy our 230 year old experiment in democracy.

These freedoms form the very basis of our way of life, consumption or should I say over-consumption notwithstanding. Our ancestors died to give us those freedoms that Turks, Chinese or some Europeans don’t fully have. The time may come and shortly, alas, when some of us may again have to bleed to protect such rights.

Yet so many of the opinions expressed today are based upon ideology or incorrect facts. Our media and blogs are often filled with sheer bluster producing a clash of opinions that does not produce clarity, but confusion and chaos instead.

Any discussion that leads to greater understanding must be based upon a grasp of the facts that underlie the situation under discussion.

Iraq is a good case in point. It is now costing us $338,000 a minute. It’s final bill will probably reach two trillion dollars. Over 15,000 dead and seriously injured. Many lives disrupted and destroyed. Our reputation in taters. And worse, what we have done to the Iraqis and their environment. Shame is all I can feel as the images flicker in my mind.

All based upon lies and years of using ideology instead of facts to understand the situation in Iraq. We’ve made an unholy mess that will haunt us and the suffering Iraqis for decades.

W and his team must be held to account. The reason for our making such an egregious mistake brought carefully to light, so that such behavior is seen for what it is – contemptuous – and that we can continue to protect that first amendment from that produced the criticism that lead to the election defeat that will allow the democrats to expose the secret decisions that underlie the empirical presidency of W.

It will cause dissension and great opposition.

W wants to hide his mistakes, but they must be exposed if we are to survive as a nation and to find a way to provide some recompense for destroying people and a land that is over 5,000 years old.
