Only You Can Stop This Continuing Injustice: Speak Up and Be Heard!

() wolfIt was initially hard to find the coverage of  the Catherine Greig plea in the local newspapers. That is why I ended up getting my information from the NY Post. On Thursday I figured the locals could not totally ignore it so I Googled her name looking for news.

The Globe’s Shelley Murphy, the one who wrote about Billy Bulger’s grand jury testimony wrongfully leaked to the Globe, reported on it. She noted that the federal prosecutor Mary B. “Murrane said Greig refused to answer questions about her whereabouts between 1995 and 2011 “and whether any third party provided assistance to her and Mr. Bulger.” The article went on to note: “Greig was initially found in civil contempt for refusing to testify and nine months were added to her sentence. Prosecutors last year sought her indictment on the criminal contempt charge.”

Laurel J. Sweet for the Herald  noted:  “Risking life imprisonment to stand by her man, the longtime girlfriend of mobster James “Whitey” Bulger pleaded guilty yesterday to defying a court order that she tell a grand jury who helped the couple live large on the lam for 16 years.” “Live large?” Is her prejudice showing?  Sweet did note that: “Saylor asked Greig if she understood he could put her away for good, she responded, “I do.””

Federal Judge Saylor Tells Catherine Greig He May Give Her Life in Prison

justice criesLife in prison! According to reports Judge Saylor said he can impose a punishment on 64-year-old Catherine Greig of such magnitude that she may spend the rest of her life in prison. She is already doing 8 years plus an additional nine months for civil contempt. This to a woman who never committed a violent act.

Think of it. Please think of how these judges have treated others in the Whitey Bulger saga. John Martorano who murdered 20 people was given 12 years in prison and $20,000 upon his release; Kevin Weeks who murdered five was given six years in prison and allowed to keep his lottery winnings; Frankie Salemme got a handful of years and none for his murders or perjury; Stevie Flemmi who murdered two young women and a dozen or so other people is now in a Club Med confinement if not back on the street and he kept millions of dollars of his property.

These violent murderers all got good deals because they told the prosecutor Fred Wyshak what he wanted to hear about Whitey Bulger. (He wanted to really hear something bad about Billy Bulger. No one had a bad word to say about him no matter how much Wyshak begged and cajoled and promised. ) Greig who stood up to him and refused to render him any cooperation must now suffer his wrath.

Catherine Greig Day – Double Double Punishment

(`) Liberty CriesToday we get a look at our Kafkaesque federal justice system if things go as reported. Catherine Greig is scheduled to plead guilty to contempt of court. She refuses to testify before a federal grand jury about her relationship with Whitey. A note to all gangsters and their molls. if you are in love and going to live together and not otherwise married then do get married. You can save yourself a lot of trouble if you do. Catherine would never have gone to prison at all had she done that in the first place.

You know Catherine has been through this before. She has never committed a crime other than going off with Whitey and living with him and doing things a woman would do to help a guy who was a fugitive from justice. No doubt she knew he was on the lam. But the twisted minds in the federal court decided that somehow she knew she was harboring a murderer when there was no evidence, none, that when she left with him she knew he was accused of any murders because at that time no one ever said Whitey murdered anyone; nor is there any evidence that if she at some subsequent time learned he was charged with one, or some, she believed that he had murdered anyone.

Make America Great Again!

() HareI assume that the slogan “Make America Great Again” means that America is not great now. It follows then that there was a time in the past when it was great. My question is to those who think this is true and who want to make America great again is where do you want to bring us back to?

My way of thinking is that America though never perfect and scarred with many blemishes was always great. It still is. It was the one land where people could go to in the past to escape dire situations. I believe today, it is as great as it was at any other period in our history. I would like those who think there were better days to think about them and ask themselves whether they would want to be living back then rather than today.

The slogan is that of Donald Trump. I’ve listened closely to him. I have yet to hear him tell us at what prior time he thinks America was great. If he could identify that, I would ask him to tell us why it was great then and not now.

H.L. Mencken Looked Forward to This Year’s Election

Mencken wrote on July 26, 1920:

“The larger the mob, the harder the test. In small areas, before small electorates, a first-rate man occasionally fights his way through, carrying even the mob with him by force of his personality. But when the field is nationwide, and the fight must be waged chiefly at second and third hand, and the force of personality cannot so readily make itself felt, then all the odds are on the man who is, intrinsically, the most devious and mediocre — the man who can most easily adeptly disperse the notion that his mind is a virtual vacuum.

The Presidency tends, year by year, to go to such men. As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”

Money for Criminals: The Unjust Enrichment of Felons’ Families

Piles and stacks of money - coins and US dollarsFrom what I hear John Callahan’s family is seeking money from the government and from Whitey Bulger’s assets for his murder. Apparently the federal prosecutors in Boston have no problem with this nor do the federal judges. I do.

He not only does not deserve any money but any money that he had should have be taken from him.

The government’s evidence is that John Callahan paid a hired gunman John Martorano to kill a legitimate business owner named Wheeler because he wanted to take over his business World Jai Alai. Callahan told Martorano to his face that he would pay him fifty thousand dollars for the murder. Martorano proceeded to go to Tulsa, Oklahoma, to do the hit with another hardened criminal named Joe McDonald. Wheeler was murdered getting into his car at his country club. He was shot in the eye and died immediately. Callahan then tried to buy the business from Wheeler’s wife hoping for some type of fire sale.

Do you think Callahan is deserving of some type of compensation from the government for this?

Do Secret FBI Records Prevent Boston Marathon Terrorist Attack Victims From Being Compensated. The Need to Act Now.

Bston Terrorist AttackThe third anniversary of April 15, 2013, the date of the Boston Marathon Terrorist Attack (MTA) will soon be upon us. The clock to bring suit against those who may be liable for the damages caused by the attack is ticking away. That attack saw the death of three individuals, the severe maiming of hundreds others, and injuries of varying types to thousands more. The enormity of the action by Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is well-known; what is not known is the involvement of the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) in bringing it about.

The FBI will not voluntarily disclose its full involvement with Tamerlan Tsarnaev. It is in its great interest not to be embarrassed by it; and also in the interest of the Government not to have it known. Imagine the extent of damages that our Government would be face if it were to be  shown that the FBI’s actions or negligence were a direct cause of the bombing.

We have seen how generous the federal judiciary has been in handing out damages to people harmed by the FBI in the cases involving the victims of Whitey Bulger. More so have we seen it in cases involving the Mafia where four families were awarded more than 25 million each even though for two of them there was no basis for giving them anything.
