IRS Capitulates – Moran’s Jeep Returned

IRS Capitulates  – Moran’s Jeep Returned | Exposing Corruption, Injustices, & The Good, the Bad & the Ugly | Scoop.it
By Edward Snook Investigative Reporter Montrose, Colorado – In our last edition the US~Observer published a front page article titled, “64 Felony Charges Beaten – Team Minns Levels IRS – DOJ.” This riveting expose gave in-depth coverage about the solid defeat inflicted on the IRS by Houston, Texas attorney Michael Minns, the architect of a defense for a Montrose, CA couple, James and Pamela Moran, standing trial on 64 counts of sundry tax crimes. With the acquittal on all counts this reporter issued a challenge to get the Morans’ Jeep back.  This challenge was answered on April 23, 2008, when the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) quietly, and ever so discreetly, capitulated to the trial outcome and returned the Morans’ Jeep, stolen from them by the IRS in 2001. Incidentally, the same year the Jeep was illegally stolen, Minns’ book, “How to survive the IRS” was released by Barricade Press. Most will only speculate regarding the return of the automobile but this reporter has researched some facts in this case that may shed some light on what did occur to cause the IRS to take the Jeep away from the Morans in the first place. The good news is this vehicle is once again housed under the roof of the Morans’ garage, only after they suffered terribly from the malicious prosecution that reigned down upon them for seven years. This terror included two jury trials in Federal Court and a successful appeal to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.  The ordeal began over seven years ago when the IRS, from orders on high, attacked an organization called Anderson Ark Associates (AAA) located in Costa Rica and the United States. The Morans along with many other completely innocent investors were deemed criminals and pursued by abusive IRS agents who were more intent on convictions than of conducting a legitimate investigation and then determining the truth.  In the Morans’ case the indictments were based on a series of misrepresentations initiated by biased Certified Public Accountant, Joseph H. Moschetti, located in Grand Junction, CO, who may have been fearful of losing a client to AAA. He told Criminal Investigative Department (CID) agent Michelle Hagemann (with whom it was disclosed during the Morans’ second trial that he had a personal relationship with) about the organization and she ultimately lead the raid against the Morans’ home and pursued the indictment against these two elderly people. The Morans’ home was assaulted by armed dragoons that broke down their door, confiscated records that could be used in the Morans’ defense and seized a new Jeep, leaving the Morans’ with a ten year old truck, which was considered to be worthless by the IRS.  During the first “now proven false conviction” trial Hagemann gave false testimony against the Morans, leading to a conviction on all 64 counts. Facing a long jail sentence the Morans appealed the convictions based on the premise the judge denied them the right to express their beliefs for participating in the alleged tax scam. It needs to be said, the truth only comes out when dealing with the Internal Revenue Service and the Department of Justice once in a blue moon – and only with the assistance of exceptional legal council, able to counter the deceptions and manipulations of the prosecution, combined with the assistance of unconstitutional court practices, withheld evidence and ridiculous, costly procedures.  However, in the second trial the Morans new counsel Michael Minns grilled Hagemann about her relationship with her now known source, Moschetti. Minns repeatedly asked Hagemann about being escorted to a AAA meeting in Grand Junction by Moschetti, and why she gave him her private home phone number, usually guarded by agents, resulting in her admission that he was her personal tax preparer. Hagemann did have the faint decency to admit that it would be inappropriate if in fact the CPA was getting a finders fee reward for turning the Morans over to the IRS. She added that if it came up she would refer it to someone else since the relationship she shared with Moschetti would have created a conflict of interest. The bottom line is this – Moschetti had Hagemanns’ home phone number, he was calling her a lot, he offered to let her bug his office phone and listen in on his clients and he went with her to a meeting where the Morans spoke, (assisting Hagemann in concealing her “undercover” status) with another client of his who he didn’t inform the identity of Hagemann to. The US~Observer’s strong opinion is that Moschetti is an undercover agent of the IRS and like a majority of agents, he and Hagemann openly practice out and out deception and literal entrapment. In short – they both “live a lie.” Those naïve customers that employ Moschetti as their CPA had better hope that he isn’t taping their conversations and turning those tapes over to the IRS.  There were other agents that participated in the conspiracy against the Morans. One such agent was CID agent James Dowling (undercover name – Jim Mitchell). His testimony in the first trial was well orchestrated by the prosecution and not challenged by the defense attorneys. Minns did not commit these errors in the second trial. During the questioning Dowling stated that he no longer worked directly for the IRS but that he worked for another entity and was contracted out to the government indirectly. Interestingly, when Minns asked him if that entity was in any way similar to Blackwater USA, a private intelligence and security firm, the court ruled the question out of order and struck it from the record. Minns is not convinced that the jury struck it from their minds or the pool of evidence. Dowling testified in the first trial that he did not accept the hospitality of AAA to stay at a Costa Rican Bed and Breakfast while attending an educational conference, but instead, fearing for his life due to the dangerous people involved with AAA, stayed at a hotel alone.

WA Prosecutor Karl Sloan – Misconduct and Patterns of Malicious Prosecutions

WA Prosecutor Karl Sloan – Misconduct and Patterns of Malicious Prosecutions | Exposing Corruption, Injustices, & The Good, the Bad & the Ugly | Scoop.it
By Edward Snook Investigative Reporter Okanogan County, WA – The US~Observer has published numerous articles on James and Angela Faire who were falsely charged with serious crimes by Okanogan County, WA Prosecutor Karl Sloan on June 19, 2015. For James, those charges include Murder in the First Degree. Past articles include extensive facts of this case and we would prompt anyone who hasn’t read them to do so (look to the related articles below). Each and every fact in this case proves that James and Angela Faire are innocent of all criminal charges and many of the facts prove that Sloan’s manufactured victims are factually the ones guilty of committing felony crimes against the Faires and others. Concerning the major false charge of Murder in the First Degree against James Faire, the prosecution witnesses have stated in depositions that they hid their vehicles and themselves until the Faires arrived at Richard Finegold’s property on Sourdough Road in Okanogan County to retrieve their personal belongings. The gang then surrounded Faire’s truck in an attempt to keep them from leaving (kidnapping). The prosecution witnesses admit that George Abrantes attacked the Faires with a large logging chain with a padlock attached. They also admit that the Faires were attempting to escape the attack by 300 lb. Abrantes when Debra Long was ran over. What is mind-boggling is that Prosecutor Sloan has these facts right in front of him, but has chosen to turn a blind eye to justice. Early on we realized that Sloan was ignoring evidence and actually obstructing justice by using delay tactics. One such example is that Faire’s Attorney Stephen Pidgeon has requested joint interviews of important witnesses on numerous occasions, only to be repeatedly stonewalled by Sloan. When corrupted prosecutors like Sloan obstruct and when they completely ignore conclusive evidence, especially when it comes from prosecution witnesses, it becomes obvious that there are more bones buried in Sloan’s closet. Since publishing on this case we have received 29 complaints regarding Sloan from Okanogan County residents – 42 complaints have been received on other members of the Okanogan justice system. We have started looking into some of these complaints and we are going to begin publishing on them unless Prosecutor Sloan gets a “Brain” and stops targeting people without conclusive proof of them having committed a crime. If we are forced to continue dealing with Prosecutor Sloan we will prove to the citizenry of Okanogan County exactly how corrupt he is and how he is factually and irresponsibly wasting valuable taxpayer dollars. One such case we have been alerted to is that of Russ Arndt and his son. Mr. Arndt is a Chiropractor from Okanogan County who was falsely charged with 11 felony crimes related to “Intimidating a Public Official” and certain misdemeanors by Sloan on August 25, 2015. According to Arndt, his son was charged with the same. On August 19th of 2015, as the Okanogan Complex Fire was rapidly approaching Arndt’s property, he was forced to act quickly. He contacted fire command, asking for water trucks – he was told they weren’t available so Arndt, his son and friends went to work. By August 20th they had extinguished the fire where it was threatening his property and some neighbor’s properties who had already evacuated. Shortly after that, firefighters entered Arndt’s property to supposedly “look for hotspots.” Arndt, who was understandably disgusted that they hadn’t been there to help save his home and property, informed them they were trespassing and ordered them to leave – that he had taken care of all “hot spots.” Arndt’s son eventually accepted a coerced plea bargain. He was required to complete 80 hours of community service, and if he was law abiding for one year his charges would be dismissed. He completed his year and we are informed his charges were dismissed. Russ Arndt stood his ground and went to trial in October of 2016. He was acquitted of all felonies, however, the jury found him guilty of misdemeanor disorderly conduct. He attributes the one guilty finding to Sloan lying and exaggerating in court, coupled with the fact that a couple jurors were offended with him using foul language when he confronted the firefighters in 2015. Arndt was sentenced to one year of probation, required to pay court fees and complete an “Anger Management” course – he completed everything. Arndt says that this ordeal has cost him over $30,000 in Attorney fees and costs. He is left with a complete lack of confidence in the justice system and a strong desire to hold Prosecutor Karl Sloan accountable for his corrupted actions – a position that most people who have complained to us about Sloan have taken. Arndt is currently researching his legal options. Sloan’s Abuse Seems Endless In another fabricated case involving Prosecutor Karl Sloan, Keith Holbrook, a 67-year-old Vietnam War Veteran has been wrongfully charged with arson. During the Carlton Complex Fire, Keith’s dream retirement home burnt to the ground. His valuable gun collection, other assets and a newly remodeled home with a combined estimated value of over $750k was gone in a matter of minutes. According to receipts and other records, Keith had already been evacuated when the home burnt, yet Sloan has used a “fabricated” police report to continue his pursuit of a Veteran who has shrapnel lodged in his brain from Vietnam. Mr. Holbrook has also been diagnosed with dementia by multiple doctors. They have stated he is incapable of forming intent to commit the crimes he has been accused of. Furthermore, his home was under insured for $146k, which clearly shows there would be no motive for Keith to burn his own home. Disregarding these facts, Sloan has continued to vindictively harm Keith Holbrook by not dismissing this false and fabricated case, threatening what is left of this war hero’s freedom. We will be publishing on the Arndt, Holbrook, and other cases in a more detailed manner in upcoming editions of the US~Observer – be sure to subscribe […]
