Judicial Accountability Coup d’Etat in America

HARVESTING JUSTICE starting with the Low Hanging Fruit Opt-in USA NFJA - 2016Low Hanging Fruit, i.e. Senate reconfirmation hearings on Special Counsel Carolyn Lerner  —  OPT-IN-USA

The prospect of Joseph P. Carson securing the support of our national grassroots legal/judicial reform community transforms his 25 year long quest for OSC and MSPB accountability into a potential judicial accountability coup d’etat in America.

We identified it as an international human rights issue. We learned that a potentially insurmountable obstacle to relief was America’s failure to ratify the Optional Protocols to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) and Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (CAT). With all these U.S. foreign policy considerations swirling in the air, it can be difficult to remember that Opt IN USA is a grassroots campaign to redress unchecked judicial misconduct in America.

Our goal is appropriate judicial accountability. There should be substantive and procedural mechanisms by which it is supplied on a case-by-case basis in America. And, of course, America is no stranger to appropriate judicial accountability. But many (too many) Americans are denied that measure of good government. Yet that injustice should not and, in fact, cannot be our Swan Song. We are not swans. We are Phoenixes!
  • Opt IN USA will continue coordinating meetings between its campaign participants and their U.S. Representatives.
  • Campaign coordinators will assist campaign participants in following up with whomever they met at those meetings.
  • Already Opt IN USA is teaming up with some of the world’s most accomplished human rights activists to address the relative isolation of Americans from the international human rights community and the corresponding threat for current and potential targets of The Third Degree.
  • Opt IN USA and its sister organization, NFOJA (National Forum On Judicial Accountability) will assist any and all willing Opt IN USA participants in organizing and mobilizing for local and/or state-focused judicial reform advocacy.
  • IN THE MEANTIME, we should try to get a wi
    n for judicial accountability under our belts, and the U.S. Senate reconfirmation hearings on Special Counsel Carolyn N. Lerner presents an opportunity for us to do just that!

Family Court Judges - 2016
Hopefully you have seen our online requests to “Stand with Joe!” We’ve shared various grounds for requesting your support, but here’s the simplest explanation:
“With the help of Joe Carson, NFOJA and its sister organizations are tackling dysfunctions of some major U.S. quasi-judicial administrative agencies.” One of the agencies is the U.S. Merit Systems Protection Board, particularly with regard to the U.S. Office of Special Counsel (OSC).
Our current focus is on delaying (not necessarily stopping) reconfirmation of Carolyn N. Lerner as Special Counsel. Here is some of what Opt IN USA’s debut report has to say on the subject:
The OSC is charged with ‘(p)rotecting federal employees from improper personnel actions, including retaliation for whistleblowing’. Clearly that function could align with disappointed expectations and brewing/escalating resentment among federal employees who looked or look to the OSC for protection. But the threat to public health and safety is arguably more ominous given OSC’s purported role as ‘a safe channel for federal employees to disclose wrongdoing’.

In fact a Joseph Carson of Tennessee regularly publicizes his ‘opinion as a professional engineer (PE) that OSC is a decades-long, law-breaking fraud of a federal agency, the U.S. Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) is its decades-long, law-breaking, enabler and that this continuing, compounded, federal agency law-breaking puts America and civilization at unnecessarily increased risk of a nuclear terrorist attack or other dire calamity, given its deeply corrupting impact on the integrity of the federal civil service.’ The MSPB is ‘an independent, quasi-judicial agency in the Executive branch that serves as the guardian of Federal merit systems.’

For nearly two (2) weeks we’ve circulated an online petition for the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee (HSGAC) to put a “hold” on Lerner’s nomination to a second five year term as Special Counsel, the head of the OSC. The petition title is “Demand that Special Counsel Lerner answer special questions before being reconfirmed!” Although our petition has generated only eight (8) signatures so far, the HSGAC is going to send Lerner more written questions and will not act on her nomination until she responds!!!!
As a high profile nuclear safety whistleblower, Joseph Carson (Joe) is influential as evidenced by the current stall on Lerner’s confirmation. But the prospect of him securing the support of our national grassroots legal/judicial reform community transforms his 25 year long quest for OSC and MSPB accountability into a potential judicial accountability coup d’etat in America. So please, let’s intensify the pressure / accountability by signing and sharing our Opt IN USA petition for Joe. Again, this is low hanging fruit in our metaphorical harvest of justice. We’re winning and they haven’t seen anything yet!
