Strasbourg grants emergency hearing in Charlie Gard appeal

Alternative treatment for seriously ill child not in his best interests.

UK Human Rights Blog

Yates v United Kingdom – here

In my last post on this case, I explained that the Supreme Court had granted a short stay to 5pm Friday 9th June to enable the parents to ask the Strasbourg Court to intervene. So far, the courts have ruled in favour of Great Ormond Street’s application to withdraw artificial ventilation from Charlie.

Shortly after my post, on Friday 9 June, the ECtHR ordered an emergency hearing. To that end, it requested the UK to keep Charlie alive until the end of 13 June.

VL Will Be Interviewing Former CA Supreme Court Judge Salcido This Month


VL Will Be Interviewing Former CA Supreme Court Judge Salcido This Month

One over-the-top example of the judge’s “humor” occurred when she gleefully told a defendant that if he violated his probation, “you will definitely be screwed, and we don’t offer Vaseline for that.”


Yes, this is extremely interesting indeed. How many more family court judges would blow the whistle in the event they are given a safe opportunity to do so?

VL will be interviewing former CA Supreme court Judge Salcido this month!

Judge Salcido is speaking about how corrupt Family Court System is!
She is a great asset to our fight against these legal child traffickers.

What Could Have Been – Former Judge DeAnn Salcido

Secret investigations, alleged rigged elections, disrespect for one’s superior and completely inappropriate courtroom behavior are just a few of the dynamics involved with the curious San Diego legal personality DeAnn Salcido. The controversy has been ongoing for at least two years, though the Commission on Judicial Performance did not announce it was investigating then-judge Salcido until after she was elected in June, 2010. Among other things, she is accused of having made untrue allegations against other judges during that re-election campaign in an effort to sway voters to her side. She even went so far as to say during one press conference that her boss, Judge Peter Deddeh was wrong to not have sentenced John Gardner to the fullest extent that the law provided. Had he been sentenced to the maximum number of years in a case in the 1990s versus allowing a plea bargain to be entered, he would not have been on the streets and would not have murdered two California girls, Amber Dubois and Chelsea King. Continue reading →

A San Diego Superior Court judge criticized for her theatrical and sometimes demeaning behavior on the bench — all of which was apparently in the hope of landing a television program — was censured by a state commission and will resign, according to a ruling released Wednesday.

Judge DeAnn Salcido will tender her resignation within five days, according to the agreement with the Commission on Judicial Performance. She also agreed not to seek another judgeship. Continue reading →

Social Worker Whose Failings Created Extra Work For Colleagues Struck Off


Social Worker Whose Failings Created Extra Work For Colleagues Struck Off



by Luke Stevenson on May 31, 2017

Sourced from: Community Care

A social worker whose failings “imposed extra burdens” on her colleagues has been struck off by the HCPC.

A conduct and competence committee heard how the social worker failed to carry out statutory visits, respond to phone calls from service users or complete viability assessments in four separate cases.

“The registrant’s behaviour resulted in acutely vulnerable children being exposed to the risk of harm, as well as diminishing the confidence of other service users in the service for which the registrant worked and imposed extra burdens on colleagues and other agencies,” the panel said.

It heard that her cases were reallocated to other social workers, and her managers had to do extra work to chase up cases. Because of her actions, service users made complaints about the “upset and annoyance” they experienced, which the panel said caused disaffection with the service.

No explanation

The social worker – who had worked in the authority for 12 years before the failings occurred – did not engage in the process, and therefore did not show remorse or insight into her conduct, the panel said.

In her local authority’s internal investigation she offered “no explanation” about why she failed to complete the tasks, or would falsely claim she had done them, the panel heard.

When issues with her practice were first identified, the council reduced her caseload and provided her with extra supervision, but she “repeatedly failed to perform to an acceptable standard”.

The panel concluded a striking off order was necessary to “protect the public in a case with a total lack of insight and apparent unwillingness or inability to resolve matters”.

Duty Of The Courts To Be Watchful For The Constitutional Rights Of The Citizen


Duty Of The Courts To Be Watchful For The Constitutional Rights Of The Citizen

the people’s digital law library – corpus juris unlimited

It is the duty of the courts to be watchful for the Constitutional rights of the citizen and against any stealthy encroachments thereon. ” Boyd vs. United States, 116 US 616

The U.S. Supreme Court has stated that “no state legislator or executive or judicial officer can war against the Constitution without violating his undertaking to support it”. See also In Re Sawyer, 124 U.S. 200 (188); U.S. v. Will, 449 U.S. 200, 216, 101 S. Ct. 471, 66 L. Ed. 2d 392, 406 (1980); Cohens v. Virginia, Scheuer v. Rhodes, 416 U.S. 232, 94 S. Ct. 1683, 1687 (1974) Note: By law, a judge is a state officer. The judge then acts not as a judge, but as a private individual (in his person). When a judge acts as a trespasser of the law, when a judge does not follow the law, the Judge loses subject-matter jurisdiction and the judges’ orders are not voidable, but VOID, and of no legal force or effect. The U.S. Supreme Court stated that “when a state officer acts under a state law in a manner violative of the Federal Constitution, he comes into conflict with the superior authority of that Constitution, and he is in that case stripped of his official or representative character and is subjected in his person to the consequences of his individual conduct. The State has no power to impart to him any immunity from responsibility to the supreme authority of the United States.
“The prosecutor is not a witness; and he should not be permitted to add to the record either by subtle or gross improprieties. Those who have experienced the full thrust of the power of government when leveled against them know that the only protection the citizen has is in the requirement for a fair trial.” Donnelly v. Dechristoforo, 1974.SCT.41709 ¶ 56; 416 U.S. 637 (1974) McNally v. U.S., 483 U.S. 350, 371-372, Quoting U.S. v Holzer, 816 F.2d. 304, 307

Fraud in its elementary common law sense of deceit… includes the deliberate concealment of material information in a setting of fiduciary obligation. A public official is a fiduciary toward the public,… and if he deliberately conceals material information from them he is guilty of fraud. “The law requires proof of jurisdiction to appear on the record of the administrative agency and all administrative proceedings.” Hagans v Lavine 415 U. S. 533.

POLICE POWER The confusion of the police power with the power of taxation usually arises in cases where the police power has affixed a penalty to a certain act, or where it requires licenses to be obtained and a certain sum be paid for certain occupations. The power used in the instant case cannot, however, be the power of taxation since an attempt to levy a tax upon a Right would be open to Constitutional objection. (See “taxing power,” infra.) Each law relating to the use of police power must ask three questions: 1. “Is there threatened danger? 2. Does a regulation involve a Constitutional Right? 3. Is this regulation reasonable?” People vs. Smith, 108 Am.St.Rep. 715; Bovier’s Law Dictionary, 1914 ed., under “Police Power”

“The police power of the state must be exercised in subordination to the provisions of the US. Constitution. ” Connolly vs. Union Sewer Pipe Co., 184 US 540; Lafarier vs. Grand Trunk R.R. Co., 24 A. 848; O’Neil vs.

Famine And Hunger In Africa: What You Need To Know


Famine And Hunger In Africa: What You Need To Know

Updated May 12, 2017 Chris Huber


Milions of people  are experiencing unprecedented hunger and famine in Africa. A combination of conflict, recurring severe drought, and high food prices are to blame.

For about 100,000 people in South Sudan, it’s so bad the United Nations officially declared famine. Large areas of Somalia are on the brink of famine, too. About 1 million children in worst-affected regions of the continent are severely acutely malnourished, the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs reports.

This means that people are starving to death. Right now.

“The goal should be that they return and help to rebuild their own countries,” he was quoted by the newspaper as saying.
