From time to time one hears of violence on TV shows. And some believe that promotes a climate of violence in the U.S. In Chicago, however, a Judge has given her stamp of government approval to violence directed AGAINST A TV SHOW. The details:
Chicago has one of the largest public access Cable TV systems in the nation. Cablecast there are a variety of programs, on educational and community issues, local events, and a few on political commentary. Some shows counter the propaganda of the monopoly press.
The producers of such shows, who are not paid, are local residents who have to go to a special school to learn how to properly use the TV studio equipment. Their programs, depending on the popularity, are cablecast within the Windy City to upwards of 400,000. Some are also later used in the suburban public access systems. "On the air" since 1991, has been our weekly one-hour taped program called "Broadsides", one of the favorites on public access. The logo is a sketch of an old warship, the opening music being Peter Tchaikovsky's "1812 Overture" with cannons shooting. I
have been a regular panelist from the beginning and since 1995, the moderator/producer of the Shows. Although our shows are taped for later showing, nothing is ever censored. We have had as guests, political candidates, some for high office. Every such election show I always ask: "If you are elected, what will YOU do about what some contend is the American CIA flooding dope into the U.S. through Chicago?" The usual cop-out answer, "I don't know anything about the CIA." I
Also always ask, "Some contend the ultra-rich, such as the Rockefellers, the Mellons, the Morgans, and the Marshall Fields, pay little if any taxes, because they corruptly influence tax collectors. Thus not supporting the infrastructure of America. So, hospitals, libraries, schools,, and roads are often out of funds and bankrupt. If elected, what will YOU do to tax such sacred cows?" I have never, on-camera, received a straight answer.
I have in the past often wondered why such candidates come on my Show at all. After a program, a campaign chief for such a candidate told me, "Skolnick, you have a big audience. If my client can survive your big mouth, they can survive anything the other side can throw at them."
We have aired with a lot of details, topics such as:
===Key federal judges who own and operate banks jointly with lawyer-cronies, sometimes in combination with criminal enterprises. When that bank is a litigant in their Court, the judges do NOT step down. Guess who wins in their crooked court? "Chicken" lawyers are silent.
===key commercial TV reporters and managers who are assets of America's secret political police, the CIA and the FBI. And are beholden to the American Gestapo, the IRS. All of them promoting the BIG LIE on THEIR TV Shows.
===important, smelly financial cases in court, forbidden to be discussed by the pressfakers.
===political murders falsely described in the press as done by "lone assassins".
===how major newspapers and their circulation departments are tied to criminals. Such as, the Chicago Tribune, going all the way back to 1910 and thereafter.

Corrupt high-level state and federal government officials are often targets of our past shows or to be on upcoming shows. We have asserted how James E. Ryan, Illinois Attorney General is tied to the Mob. He once lived right near my TV associate, Joseph Andreuccetti who ran into Ryan in a local park. Ryan said, "We are going to GET you and Skolnick for what you are doing".
Years ago, as the head of a court reform group, our work led to the jailing for bribery of the former Director of the Illinois Department of Revenue. In recent years, we have fingered the more current chief state tax extractor. He and top Chicago IRS officials are reportedly silent partners in a west suburban shopping mall, Cermak Plaza Shopping Center, jointly with reputed criminal money laundry types. According to mandatory federal judicial financial disclosure records, the shopping center is owned by Chicago U.S. District Judge George M. Marovich [(312)435-5590], who also owns and operates a bank.
Tied into this is the one now Illinois Treasurer, Judy Baar Topinka, who was once on our show. We showed in undisputed matters in court, that this gang, although supposedly Republicans, are surrogates for First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton, supposedly a Democrat, and Hillary put us on her "enemies list" to inflict dirty tricks on us.
By putting us under intense surveillance, they found out:
===We kept some secret documents about high-level corruption at the home of my associate Joseph Andreuccetti who along with his wife, Noemi, assists in the planning and production of our TV programs. And since I am a paraplegic in a wheelchair, he often transports me in his vehicle.
===The high-level corrupt officials found out we were working on a further series of shows about their massive corruption, forbidden to be discussed by "The Liars and Whores of the Press" as labeled by us. The presslords need favors from these government gangsters. Such as, the headquarters for CBS's outlet in Chicago, WBBM-TV, Channel 2, although a commercial, profit-making enterprise, has arranged with them to make themselves supposedly "exempt" from many taxes. And, as the corrupt drug police are in a position to know, some of the TV News trucks reportedly carry around a white powder that is not from a sugar bowl.
Since May, 1997, I and Joseph Andreuccetti have had pending in court a damage suit against these top corrupt government officials who have been doing dirty tricks to interfere with our TV Shows about THEM. On August 28, 1997, this gang arranged the following:
A four-person, heavily-armed, Gestapo-like team forced their way at gunpoint into the suburban residence of Joseph and Noemi Andreucceti. This force was made up of two state agents and two purported suburban police. WITHOUT A SEARCH WARRANT, they examined every corner of the dwelling, examining records and documents for our upcoming anti-corruption shows. They plundered and removed the following, among other things:
===records and details relating to a then upcoming TV Show about the IRS/State Revenue/mobster/Federal Judge shopping center as a reputed money laundry. And that the tax collectors help criminals evade massive amounts of taxes.
===how the then Chief Judge of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Chicago has an offshore secret net worth of 140 million dollars reportedly from corrupt means and has not filed a proper tax return in 30 years.
===how top IRS and State Revenue officials steal property and assets, NOT FOR THE PUBLIC TREASURY, but for their own personal benefit,including properties and monies belonging to Joseph Andreuccetti.
===how 50 million dollars of federal funds were secretly transferred from Chicago to Little Rock to try to help Bill and Hillary Clinton evade being prosecuted for federal criminal charges of bank embezzlement.
===records and documents needed to proceed in the already then pending court case against this corrupt gang of public officials.
===how the Chicago Tribune had a then upcoming scheme to falsely label the late Chicago Mayor Richard J. Daley, father of the current mayor Richie Daley, as being a "communist-sympathizer". This, since the Tribune was out to defame the Daley family being supporters of Vice President Albert Gore, Jr. The Tribune was able to go forward with their scheme on the front page of the paper, 8/31/97, based on false and fraudulent FBI records known by the Tribune bosses as being false and fraudulent.
The Gestapo-like force, without cause or provocation, then and there on August 28, 1997, threatened to shoot Noemi Andreuccetti in the presence of her tiny grandchildren which she and Joseph take care of during the day regularly. At gunpoint, the criminals forced the Andreuccettis to abandon their grandchildren on the floor in an open house. This, to lay the basis for a possible slander against the Andreuccettis that they do not take proper care of tiny children in their custody.
These government gangsters in the presence of Joseph, got on the phone from his residence, and threatened Skolnick that similar things are going to happen to him. The criminals admitted they knew Skolnick is the moderator and producer of TV Shows about the bosses of this Gestapo and that Skolnick is a paraplegic invalid and gets help from time to time, in his work by the Andreuccettis. Noemi Andreuccetti is also a witness in the already then pending case.
On September 5, 1997, as shown by the court record, we informed Cook County Circuit Court Judge Jennifer Duncan-Brice [(312) 603-6058] as follows: That the defendants arranged through their agents to threaten to shoot a witness in the case, Noemi Andreuccetti, for the purpose of terrorizing us to drop the case and stop our TV Shows about the defendants corruption; and that the defendants WITHOUT A SEARCH WARRANT, stole records we needed to prove the pending case and for upcoming shows about the defendants corruption; that there was, as quoted in the court record, "a violent obstruction of justice". The Judge refused to do anything about this. One of the defendants named in the case is described as the head of a wire-tapper ring that works for the government officials named as defendants. Also the head wire-tapper also has been, for more than 25 years, immune from prosecution as a successful "bagman", escaping punishment by blackmail for bribing and corrupting top Chicago IRS officials and State Revenue bosses.
On October 1, 1997, one of the senior state officials, a defendant in the case, in the hallway of a public building in the presence of me and Joseph Andreuccetti, threatened terrible harm against Joseph's wife there present. Used to mouth the threats was a cohort of the key official. The purpose was to terrorize Noemi, to induce us to stop the TV Shows about the defendants corruption and to drop the pending court matter.
On that same day, I and Joseph had a 3-1/4 hour meeting with two key IRS officials. They found out we were about to go "on the air" with the confession of the long-time "bagman" and chief wire-tapper. They said if we go on the air with such a show, that they will be there to arrange to arrest us. How did we counter this threat? We put on the air a one hour show with the confession. As a backdrop, we used a huge enlargement of the business card of one these IRS gangsters. The IRS Commissioner, in Washington, D.C. obtained a copy of our TV Show and lamely alleges he will supposedly "investigate" the corruption involved. The U.S. Treasury Department's Inspector General has informed us that they will supposedly also "investigate". We informed them we have no confidence in the IRS bosses. According to law enforcement personnel, the Acting Inspector General, Robert Cesca, was reportedly, "the highest ranking mafia representative in the U.S. government".
We also did a show with details about State, Federal, and local officials who are surrogates for the corruption of the Clinton White House, entitled "Corruption: Chicago to the White House". A State official, already a defendant in court in our cases, arranged WITHOUT A SEARCH WARRANT to seize the master tape of our TV Show and refuses to return it. (Don't waste my time telling me about my First Amendment rights. At the hands of corrupt judges and officials, our rights are cancelled.)
In a recess in one of the court hearings, Judge Duncan-Brice's courtroom bailiff, in the hallway, threatened to falsely arrest me and deprive me of my liberty, figuring maybe by terrorizing me, a paraplegic in a wheelchair, that I am some kind of weakling and will stop our TV Shows and drop the court case. I complained to the Judge to no avail.
Pending in the fall of 1999 was our Third Amended Complaint, 62 pages of up-to-date, highly specific facts, dates, and details. At no time did any of the defendants dispute or challenge the facts as stated, about their violence orchestrated against us, about high-level corruption of them as government officials as mentioned on our TV Shows; that they were committing acts and doings to try to block our TV Shows by violence by their cronies.
All the details in this story are from the undisputed court records.
On December 1, 1999, Judge Duncan-Brice entered an Order approving of this violence against us and our TV Shows and refusing us any court remedy. Thereafter, we filed a written Motion demanding that the Judge wipe out her rulings since she lost jurisdiction by permitting and condoning all these things to happen to us, including "violent obstruction of justice". That by permitting and condoning these things to happen to us, the Judge lost jurisdiction by denying us Due Process, orderly proceedings, and the Equal Protection of the Laws, guaranteed to us by the State and Federal Constitution which the Judge had taken an oath to support.We demanded that the Judge stop blocking us, as she did all during the case, from questioning under oath, called "discovery" procedures, the corrupt top government officials who are defendants in the case. We demanded the Judge send our case to another judge. Attached to our Motion was about 800 pages of documents of defendants' corruption. These records, stolen from us at gunpoint by defendants, mysteriously were in part returned to us in a package with no return address, about the time of the Judge's ruling.
On March 17, 2000, both I and Joseph were actually present in Court for a hearing on our Motion. I repeated some of the matters in our written papers. I repeated the outrages the Judge permitted and condoned to happen to us during the pendency of the case and that the Judge thereby lost jurisdiction over us and our case. The Judge had in her hands on the bench our huge pile of documents of corruption of the defendants. Without much explanation, Judge Duncan-Brice rejected our Motion and threw us out of Court.
So, if a TV Show dares tell the truth about high-level government corruption, including media corruption, is there violence against those who do the show? Judge for yourself. This situation has mushroomed out, so that there are five cases by us pending against these government gangsters. So far, with a few exceptions, no judge has dared, because of being blackmailed, of effectively seeking to stop these happenings. The tax collectors, as America's Gestapo, blackmail Judges as well, threatening to audit THEIR taxes, and that of their family, or threatening to investigate certain judges who for years have not filed a proper tax return.
