Of Federal Funding for Washington Courts

Public Interest Attorneys and Journalists to Determine Their Relationship to a RICO


Seattle, WA Sept. 7, 2022. The courts of Washington State are “As corrupt as any in the nation” according to national legal experts,” and a famous Ninth Circuit Lawyer this week is implementing “phase one” of his solution: the suspension of federal funding for the state court system.

A growing contingent of public interest lawyers and those who have been targeted by a rapidly unravelling criminal network, called a RICO, are preparing a series of nationally high-profile actions which call for the investigation and prosecution of those involved.

“It isn’t just King County, by any means,” said John “The Wizard of Laws” Scannell, a nationally respected Ninth Circuit lawyer, who is suing Washington Secretary of State Steven Hobbs. Washington State Supreme Court Justice Barbara Madson is named as Mr. Hobbs’s co-defendant.

The suit filed by the famous public interest attorney is a “Petition to Correct Election Error.” A candidate for State Supreme Court, Mr. Scannell is demanding to run against Supreme Court incumbent Barbara Madson under election provisions for write-in candidates. Madson otherwise would run unopposed.

“The case asserts his right to be on the ballot. He argues that the Secretary of State misjudged the number of candidates prematurely. Further, it is common knowledge in the legal profession that Mr. Scannell’s so-called disbarment was completely illegal,” said semi-retired major media journalist Mr. Greenwald.

“His disbarment was void for lack of jurisdiction. Even without that bedrock argument, he is a qualified candidate for Supreme Court under the State Constitution because he was previously licensed. Even the Ninth Circuit Court concluded that his disbarment was illegal and refused to recognize it. It was an act of retaliation by a wildly corrupt Bar Association and the RICO the Bar is an integral member of,” he said.

“The RICO was exposed by John Pennington, Jr. A series of articles, “Seattle’s Epstein,” explains in more detail how the RICO was exposed and how it works. According to that series, in brief, this is how the alleged RICO is structured, directed, and controlled:

1).  Lloyd’s of London. The RICO is directed by the insurance company, Lloyd’s of London. In the U.S., the Lloyd’s RICO is directed and controlled by Cary Bond of Lloyd’s N.Y. office. Lloyd’s RICO is well documented in U.S. court cases like this one.

2).  AWC. The RICO is operated on a state-by-state basis. In Washington, the RICO is directed by Lloyd’s syndicate member, AWC. Just days after his role in the RICO was exposed in the press, Peter King, the de facto CEO, hastily announced his retirement in an attempt to deceive federal law enforcement.

3)  The AG. The Co-Director of the Washington State unit of Lloyd’s RICO is State Attorney General (“AG”) Bob Ferguson. Mr. Ferguson was chosen and is supported by Peter King to co-direct the RICO.

At the direction of Peter King, Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson control the legal system and deny any Washington citizen, considered by the RICO to be a financial or political risk, their Constitutional right to a fair day in court in four main ways:

A).  Public Records Officers. State public records officers, acting at the direction of Mr. Ferguson, routinely and illegally deny public records requests, destroy documents, and obstruct justice. The denial of public records prevents access to due process. These are criminal acts in violation of federal law.

B)   SAAGS. SAAGS are Special Assistant Attorney Generals. They are both private attorneys, and county prosecutors. A SAAG is basically “deputized” by Mr. Ferguson to act at his direction, effectively as his own staff. This is illegal and unconstitutional: it places both attorneys and prosecutors in a conflict of interest with the people they have a legal duty to represent. When a prosecutor illegally accepts a SAAG contract from Mr. Ferguson, it allows Mr. Ferguson to assume the county prosecutor’s power of criminal prosecution, which is denied Mr. Ferguson under the Washington State Constitution. It also allows Mr. Ferguson to deny anyone he wants the right to due process under the federal Constitution.

C)  The Bar Assn. The private Washington State Bar Association is controlled by State Attorney General Bob Ferguson. Mr. Ferguson controls the Bar by: 1) Illegally giving the private Bar millions of dollars in free rent; 2) Hosting and controlling the Bar’s email and data servers; 3) Proving unlimited free legal services to the Bar – all at a cost of countless millions of dollars to the taxpayers of Washington State; 4) Using the Bar and its disciplinary powers to target people chosen by Mr. Ferguson for liability control or political retaliation; and 5) The employees of the private Bar have been gifted tens of millions of dollars of taxpayer dollars by inexplicably being on the State retirement system, called PERS.

In one case alone, Mr. Ferguson has spent over $20,000,000 of state taxpayer dollars to illegally disbar, harass with contract private security and cybercriminals, further engaging in legally baseless litigation with dozens of attorneys against Anne Block, a court-recognized journalist.

D)  Judges. ‘A significant portion’ of Judges in Washington State are a key part of the RICO, according to insiders and legal experts. They are routinely bribed in several known ways, including home refinancing where a mysterious third party pays off their home loans, and they are routinely promoted for their collusion and cooperation in the RICO.

4).   The U.S. Attorney in the Western District. For the public, the last line of defense against public corruption is U.S. Attorney for the Western District, Nick Brown. Until his appointment, aided by RICO co-director Bob Ferguson, Mr. Brown was an attorney with the SAAG law firm Pacifica Law Group. Pacifica law group has, and continues to protect, the RICO and its members.

5).  Cases. Mr. Scannell’s Petition, and related Petitions, seek suspend funding for the State Courts until the FBI’s Office of Public Corruption in Washington, D.C. investigate the following cases and individuals before federal funding is restored for the courts of Washington State:

A)  The Beauregard Case.  The Beauregard Case is considered one of the most corrupt decisions in Washington State history. It concluded that the State Bar Association is a private organization. Because the Bar, as referenced previously, is private, yet has received hundreds of millions of state taxpayer dollars, legal experts assert that the only rational explanation for the decision is that the Bar has colluded with the courts.

Representing the Bar was Valerie A. Villacin and the Law Firm Smith Goodfriend, P.S. who are under investigation by Public Interest Attorneys and Journalists to determine their relationship to the RICO.

B)  The Estate of Robert Cannon. King County Court Commissioners Masako Kanazawa and Carlos Velategui issued “completely and openly fraudulent rulings,” according to allegations by legal experts regarding the Estate of Robert Cannon, which had, and continues, to deny a substantial creditor to the Cannon Estate a fair day in court.

The Executor for the Robert Cannon Estate, Henry Cannon, was a former employee of the courts of King County, Washington. Currently representing Mr. Cannon is Valerie A. Villacin and the Law Firm Smith Goodfriend, P.S. who are under investigation by Public Interest Attorneys and Journalists to Determine Their Relationship to the RICO.

Representing the Bar was Valerie A. Villacin and the Law Firm Smith Goodfriend, P.S. who are under investigation by Public Interest Attorneys and Journalists to determine their relationship to the RICO.

Ms. Valerie A. Villacin and the firm Smith Goodfriend, P.S. are Special Assistant Attorney Generals, or SAAGS. SAAGS are considered an integral component of the RICO, and act at the direction of State Attorney General Ferguson.

C)   Anne Block. Judge Michael Scott, in King Snohomish County, Washington, is the only judge in U.S. history where only a single legal case filed by a person, Ms. Block, was used as the basis for a finding by Judge Scott of a vexatious (excessive) litigant, thus denying Ms. Block her right to due process.

Judge Scott, a known child molester, has been protected by the RICO and has never been prosecuted for his crimes against children, which is a matter of record with the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services, Child Protection Division,” said Mr. Greenwald.

Attorney Scannell’s Ballot Statement:

“You have the right to live under the rule of law. Because of judicial corruption and organized crime, you are now denied that right.

I am a politically independent attorney in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and have decades of experience successfully fighting public corruption as a public interest lawyer.

I will work to restore your Constitutional right to have a fair day in court in four ways:

1)     Judicial Discipline.  Judges currently – and illegally – claim to be immune from the law. I will work to change that.

2)     Attorney Discipline. Attorneys now regulate themselves, and routinely commit crimes without being held accountable. I will work to change that.

3)     The Bar Association. The private Bar Association has stolen millions of your taxpayer dollars, and acted against public interest. I will work to return funds to state taxpayers..

4)    I am filing a national action this week to suspend federal funding – your federal tax dollars – from the Washington State Court system until these things are investigated and prosecuted.

I will continue to work to fix these problems and others that will protect your Constitutional rights and tax dollars with decisions that are intelligent, just, and ethical.”

“The law is clear,” said an elections lawyer familiar with the case. “The only way to misinterpret it is if one is either incredibly stupid and/or equally corrupt. That’s the purpose of his candidacy, to address what national legal experts have referred to as a court system that is “as corrupt as any court system in the nation.”

Alternately referred to as “Zamboni John,” Ninth Circuit attorney Scannell was a former zamboni driver for the City of Seattle’s hockey ring, is known to rarely charge for his relentless work on public interest cases, and is also known to spend more than a decade on a case in the pursuit of justice.

A marathon runner at age 74, Mr. Scannell is one of the few people in Washington State history to have gotten a perfect SAT score. With a degree in Physics from the University of Washington, and a former chess master, the current appellate attorney considers his illegal state disbarment a badge of honor.

Mr. Scannell’s actions in some cases have extended over a decade, hundreds of thousands of pages, and had hundreds of millions of dollars of impact. He is completely unconcerned about the person cost of his work and considers it his civic duty. Performing public interest work has cost him countless millions.

“If you do public interest work, you will offend people in power who are willing to commit crimes to retaliate against you. The question is, what are you willing to do about it? Are you willing to pay the price so we may live under the rule of law that millions have died for?” he said.

“Power isn’t taken. It’s given through fear and inaction,” said Mr. Scannell. “I’m in it for the long run,” he said, presumably a quip related to his marathon running.

Mr. Scannell’s case is before Thurston County, Washington Judge Dixon September 9, 2022.
