Famed attorney Mark Geragos taking on corrupt California State Bar

Corrupt bar associations are finally getting some scrutiny around the country. Here are some excerpts from The Modesto Bee's article on how bad the California State Bar has become:

Geragos has practiced law 32 years and represents “seven different whistleblowers at the upper echelons of the bar,” he said, including its executive director, who was fired in November.

Geragos’ top client, Joseph Dunn, is suing to get back his job, saying he was sacked after exposing a cover-up of the State Bar’s ethical problems.

If that weren’t enough, a recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling in a North Carolina anti-trust case prompted a San Diego law school and two consumer organizations to question whether lawyers should police their own.

State Bar reform is just what a former attorney in Modesto has sought since he was disbarred three years ago.

“It’s a dysfunctional system running roughshod over a lot of different people,” said Tore Dahlin. He has established a website, produced documentaries running longer than five hours and is shopping to legislators a proposed bill – all aimed at changing the structure of the State Bar Court.

Most of the 28 attorneys recently disciplined in Stanislaus, Merced, San Joaquin, Tuolumne and Calaveras counties declined to talk about allegations that landed them in hot water. A few did, though – some charging that the State Bar ignores large firms with money and influence, preferring to bully small law offices with few resources to defend themselves.

“The kind of prevalent opinion is that the State Bar Court is a kangaroo court and pretty draconian in what they do,” said Stockton attorney Roger Moore, who was suspended for 30 days last year for lax representation in a slip-and-fall case. “Some lawyers call it a witch hunt.

Dahlin’s legislation would move State Bar judges to superior courts; currently, their paychecks come from the same place as those of State Bar prosecutors, creating an inherent conflict, he said.

The University of San Diego School of Law, the Consumers Union and the Citizen Advocacy Center sent a May 4 letter to attorneys general of all states warning that state bars are “theoretically vulnerable to federal felony prosecution” unless their enforcement system is overseen by others. Occupational licensing boards that regulate accountants, doctors, brokers, barbers and other trades don’t serve the public interest if regulated by themselves, the consumer advocates say.

“The State Bar is not long for this world,” Geragos predicted, “as presently constituted.”

Meet the Bill Maher From the Right Who is Changing Entertainment

Conservatives frequently complain there are not enough of us in show business, but that may be because they are overlooking some of their top talent. Evan Sayet, a former mainstream stand-up comic and writer for comedians like Bill Maher, has hosted The Right to Laugh for years, the longest running conservative commentary show in America. He is taking his show on tour around the country this year, with stops in Phoenix, Chicago, Boston and New York. Rush Limbaugh, Dennis Miller, Larry Elder and Dennis Prager all call him "brilliant." Hugh Hewitt describes him this way, “There’s funny, there’s VERY funny and then there’s Evan Sayet.” Michael Barone of U.S. News and World Report says, "Evan has crossed that line from 'funny to important.'"
Evan’s jokes pierce through the rhetoric, forcing people to think, as they hit the left both intellectually and emotionally,
"See, the idea of being a conservative is we try to better ourselves. Liberals spend their lives just being themselves. And you would think they would love the Catholics because you don’t even wait until you’re born to start being yourself. You were yourself in the womb. And you would think the liberals would love you for that, because, what is the womb? Basically, it’s a liberal paradise. Right? Basically, you’re sitting in a hot tub, feeding off of somebody else. They should love babies in the womb, instead of wanting to abort them."
I had the chance to interview Evan this weekend and was surprised at some of the things he told me about conservatives in entertainment. Since the younger generations are increasingly interested in entertainment, conservatives need to start making more inroads there. I asked Evan how we can get more conservatives interested in becoming entertainers, and he said that wasn’t the problem. There are plenty of conservative entertainers, the problem is we’re not supporting them. Unlike the left, conservatives are more likely to have families, so they tend to be busier with family events, church, etc., blowing off our entertainers.

I will be on Main Street Out Loud with Rudi tomorrow to discuss politics

Welcome to Main Street

  "The premier political and issue driven talk show on weekend radio" 

For May 9, 2015
This Saturday Afternoon
On Radio and Live Streaming on the 'Net'  

IT SUBSIDIZES THEM"--Pres. Ronald Reagan  

Depending on government to solve things, only makes people dependent on government.  People look to Washington, D.C. for solutions and blame D.C. for the failure and inaction to rid the nation of problems that we have long endured.  These conditions have grown and manifested themselves into epic proportions that threaten the mere existence of a nation that was formed by our founding fathers and, in time,  became the greatest nation on earth.
The politicians that guide government today, for good or bad, do so with the consent of the people.  It is the people that go to the polls and vote for the individuals that sit in the legislative branch to create laws that are passed and dictate the path we follow.  If we are unhappy with Washington, D.C., we must also be disappointed in ourselves.  Continuing to send the same people back to D.C. and expecting change is as sane as continually planting radishes and expecting lettuce to grow.
There comes a time when Americans need to step up and take a stand FOR AMERICA.  When you consider the issues within our nation, when you take a cold, hard look at what is happening to our country (from the inside), when you are not afraid to see the truth---you must know that time has come--it is now.
If you do not stand, if you are not willing to make yourself heard and aren't willing to back your words with action---then who do you suggest should take your place?  If not you---who?

President Reagan's words are most fitting for the conditions in and of America today: 
"In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.  From time to time we've been tempted to believe that society has become too complex to be managed by self-rule, that government by an elite group is superior to government for, by, and of the people. Well, if no one among us is capable of governing himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else? All of us together, in and out of government, must bear the burden."


As always, you can count on us to deliver in depth findings (not sound bites) and to present things without bias, in truth and in plain English with STRAIGHT TALK. .
