Rigged courts, bribed judges, phony trials, extortion by
lawyers, and over 2 million prisoners in the USA gulag.

.... All world citizens should know how the corrupt USA
legal system, is a danger to every traveler, visitor, and guest worker from
overseas, and to every individual who takes the risky step of entering upon
American territory. Just ask the overseas families of prisoners who were put to
death inside the USA, with their embassies never even being informed that they
were arrested - or the many foreign people serving hugely long prison terms in
America, after they were jailed on flimsy tainted "evidence" from criminal
The reality is that the United States of America, which proclaims itself the
"land of freedom," has the most dishonest, dangerous and crooked legal system of
any developed nation. Legal corruption is covering America like a blanket.
The corruption of the USA legal system is well-known, but also well-hidden, by
the news services of America's corporate-owned media. The US media companies are
afraid both of reprisal, and of the social revolution that would come from
exposing the truth. Here is what the US media companies know, but are afraid to
tell you about American "justice".
Concentration camps with concrete walls
America has the largest prison gulag in the entire world - yes, right there in
the USA, the self-proclaimed "land of freedom." The starting point for
understanding anything about the USA, is to digest the fact that just this one
country, the United States of America, has twenty-five percent of ALL of the
prisoners in the entire world.
More than 2 million prisoners - more than 1 out of every 150 people in America -
are behind bars in the American gulag. This is now the world's biggest system of
what are effectively concentration camps, though most of these prisoners are
behind masonry walls and inside prison buildings. ....
Quite amazingly, Americans and the American government, continually criticize
the legal systems and so-called "political" legal proceedings in other countries
such as China, Russia, and even Belgium among many other places. Yet, for
example, the proportion of prisoners is 30 times higher in the USA than in
China, even though China is a country regularly criticized and denounced by the
No one imprisons people as readily, or casually, as does America. As you learn
more about America's horrifying legal system, you find out how easily and
carelessly America arrests people, and tosses innocent people into prison. It is
estimated that America has at least 100,000 completely innocent people in jail,
but the statistics of innocence may well run far higher. The number of people
known to be innocent, and yet who were actually sentenced to death in recent
years in America, is already running into the hundreds.
America's more than 2 million prisoners, about 50,000 are known to be foreign
citizens. This proportion might seem small, but remember that 50,000 prisoners
is more than the entire prison population of many other countries. It only
appears as a small percentage, because of America's obsession with jailing its
own people, who have had more time to get caught in America's web of legal
The USA is extremely casual about the jailing of foreigners, and not Honoring
their rights under international law or treaties and agreements. Often, foreign
citizens have been sentenced to death, while the USA didn't even bother to
notify the foreign government that their citizens were arrested.
Several other governments are working hard just to try and obtain even the most
primitive judicial rights for their own nationals, who have been seized and held
in abusive conditions by the USA empire. And yet, the United States of America
somehow still brags about its own legal system, while criticizing other
Before you set foot in America, you should have a clear picture of the terror of
America's legal system - the judges and lawyers and money and bribery, that have
made this system of fear so pervasive. There is not yet enough public media
information about America's domestic legal horrors, horrors which have been
rapidly increasing. And the American public, even the victims of its legal
system, have a hard time realizing why it is so hard to fight legal corruption
Theoretically, torture and abuse is totally outlawed by America's Constitution,
but some of the nice words in America's Constitution hold little power anymore,
despite how often people quote them. The Americans who still believe the
Constitution protects them, are mostly those people who haven't yet dealt with
the judges and lawyers of America's corrupt legal system.
America's Constitution and Bill of Rights are nearly dead, not just because the
judges will no longer enforce them, but even more because America's lawyers will
not even fight for them. The two American "political parties" are not fighting
for them, either, and America's news media are also very passive. If you look at
America in depth, you can see there has been a widespread moral collapse in
America's legal and political structures. This means that America's legal system
has become largely a tool of government terror, and of bribery for the rich and
the powerful. The average person is just fodder for the meat-grinder of
America's lies and sleazy arguments to make excuses for torture, or to deny
people the rights of the Geneva Convention, or holding people for many years
without charges, are also just an extension of the deviousness in America's
domestic legal system. Inside America, neither its laws nor its Constitution nor
the facts nor evidence nor anything else, no longer have real authority inside
the American courts.
All that's left is what American lawyers and judges call "the game." As part of
playing this game, USA lawyers and judges just twist words around, in order to
produce any excuse, however flimsy, to achieve their objective, whether that be
to jail an innocent person, or give the verdict that was sought by the big
company that paid the big bribe through its law firm.
It is an endlessly devious manipulation of words and phrases to get the desired
result, just devious falsehood and lies backed by the naked power of the judges.
The only "real" part is the power that the judges and lawyers hold in America,
to jail you and take away your property. The words of the law don't protect you
in the USA, because American judges and lawyers have no scruples about bending
them to mean the opposite of what they say.
America's lawyers are controlled by the judges, and don't really work for you -
that's why they sell you out to the government, or to the big companies that pay
There's some very special aspects about the way American lawyers are controlled
by American judges, which is central to why America's legal corruption is so
much worse than any other advanced nation. Even if you are paying an American
lawyer huge amounts of money, he or she doesn't really work for you, and in fact
may sell you down the river to the jailhouse.
American lawyers are directly under the thumb of the judges. ... Lawyers who try
to fight the system can find themselves not only dis-barred, but also criminally
charged and jailed, and no other lawyer will help them. It is a horribly crooked
system in America..... So American lawyers are afraid to do things in court,
that the judges don't want them to do. America's army of nearly 1 million
lawyers is almost totally under the control of a few thousand judges, with their
entrenched culture of bribery and fraud and miscarriage of justice. ....
So a totally unique factor in USA legal corruption is the amazingly dishonest
profession of American lawyers, these lawyers who "play the game" with America’s
judges and politicians and police. It is a savage culture of legal fraud, where
lawyers work with judges to rob and terrify people, especially ... all those who
dare to question the system.....
You will also find, in the American legal system, that you essentially have no
recourse whatsoever against wrongdoing by your own lawyer. A lawyer can sell you
out, betray you, steal your money, engage in malpractice, help out the other
side, hide the evidence that proved you were right, or commit felony crime
against you, and there is nothing you can do about it, so long as the lawyer
made the judge happy, and the judge got his cut of any money the lawyer stole
Innocent and being arrested - they don't like to admit a mistake in America
.... The police and prosecutors in America have no concern at all whether they
have arrested someone who is innocent. They just don't care. When a crime is
committed, they try to arrest somebody, anybody, just to say they got the bad
guy. And they never like to admit they made a mistake. Once they arrest you,
they will try to make up and plant false evidence, to help try and convict you.
A common trick is to take other criminals they know, who are facing jail on
other charges, and get those criminals to be false witnesses against you. The
cops justify this kind of thing by saying to themselves, "Well, if you didn't
commit this crime, you probably committed some other crime we don't know about."
If they do arrest you in America, they like to pile on all sorts of criminal
charges. The idea is to charge you with 10 crimes, because it makes you sound
bad, and maybe convict you on 3 of them or you will accept a plea bargain on 1
or 2 of them. Any kind of guilty plea, and they call it a success, even though
you were totally innocent. For the police and prosecutors, it's all a kind of
sporting game, so they can bring about their "high conviction rate." ....
Multi-millionaires and big corporations, vs. everybody else
only people who really can expect some fairness in American courts are
multi-millionaires and big corporations. Nobody else really matters to American
judges and lawyers.
There is a huge amount of bribery in America, perhaps even more than in the
courts of any other country in the world. Even some American ex-judges have
admitted the near-universality of bribery there. Nearly all bribes are given to
the judges by lawyers; this is considered the safe way to bribe a judge. Bribery
is rarely spoken about, just understood. Rich people pay huge amounts of money
to law firms with connections, the lawyers walk around with a certain amount of
cash in their jacket, and they pass it to the judges in their quiet moments
together. It is mostly all cash of course. Sometimes the bribery is blatantly
obvious, because of the other crimes that lawyers and judges commit in broad
daylight together. In the courtrooms you can see the judges being extremely
friendly to their rich lawyer friends who pay big bribes. As an average person,
there's no real way to out-bribe a big corporation, regardless of what your
lawyer promised you. That's why the big companies win so often.
American judges are very devious, and use all sorts of techniques to prevent a
victim from getting justice. Lots of judges issue gag orders, and bans on
freedom of speech, to help prevent other people from finding out what is going
on. Judges set up a trial in all sorts of ways, giving orders that all sorts of
evidence be hidden from a jury, for example. The judge may declare, for example,
that the evidence that proves you are innocent or right, will not be allowed at
Jury trials are actually very rare in America, unlike what you see in the
movies. Most cases are settled through some deal or extortion or intimidation,
before there is an actual trial. If there is a jury trial, they tend to stack
the jury with un-educated idiots who will tend to believe whatever lies they are
told by the judge and the government. If you are trying to fight a rich person
in court, the judge might let the fancy lawyers for the rich person say anything
they want, while he tells you to shut up as soon as you start talking. The
judges have a thousand ways to rig a legal proceeding, to benefit rich people or
It's no wonder so many innocent people go to prison. With the fundamental
brutality and harshness of life in America, American citizens are confused and
fearful, and gullible to propaganda. So, a jury in a courtroom, these people who
tend to be poorly educated, will tend to go along with any lies presented by
government prosecutors. In this environment of fear, the feeling of safety for
the jury, comes from following the "strong" government in sending various
"suspected criminals" to jail.
Yes, there are appeals courts, but these are just more judges, who are often
friends with the lower court judge who originally sold you out. The appeals
judges tend to go along with the lower court judge, unless you have suddenly
acquired some politically powerful backing on your side.
Americans love to talk about "taking it all the way to the Supreme Court!", but
this is a nearly empty hope. The U.S. Supreme Court simply refuses to consider
most cases that are presented to it. .... You can find no end of documented
horror about American judges behaving like criminal lunatics, and it is getting
worse all the time.
In the Hollywood version, there are brave lawyers who will fight for your
rights, to win justice for you in the American courts. In reality, you can't
find an American lawyer brave enough to fight judicial corruption, even if you
are innocent and the judge's friends have threatened to murder you, or to send
you to jail for the rest of your life. The lawyers who used to be brave, were
destroyed or intimidated, and nearly all American lawyers now submit themselves
to the culture of corruption and bribery, and betraying and abandoning the
people who need legal help. .... Even the lawyers who don't want to be wicked
themselves, are too timid to really fight the system. At a certain point, nearly
all American lawyers will hold back and abandon their clients, because they are
trying to survive themselves and avoid revenge by the judges.
In the Hollywood version, the average person is also helped by the "brave
investigative reporter" at some newspaper or television station, who shows great
courage in exposing the truth, and bringing powerful wrongdoing to face justice.
However, the brave "investigative reporter" in America is now as fictional and
non- existent as the "brave lawyer" who will fight for your rights. This is
especially true on any topic pertaining to corruption by judges and lawyers.
America is the land of fear, as regards the legal system and the culture of
corruption. Everyone involved with the USA legal system is afraid, very afraid,
of stepping on the wrong toes. Even American judges themselves get driven out of
office, if they don't participate in the bribery culture.
No recourse against crime and fraud by
judges and lawyers in America
In reality, there is almost nothing you can do against misconduct, and even open
felony crime, committed against you by American judges and lawyers. All of the
official complaint procedures you find on the internet, or at the courthouse or
in the law books, turn out to be a joke, a farce and a fraud.
Complaints about lawyers in America, usually go to the "Bar," which is itself
run by the judges who are involved in bribery with the lawyers. And complaints
about judges go to other judges, their friends.
Nearly all the complaints about lawyers and judges - tens of thousands of them -
are kept secret. Nearly all are dismissed or ignored. They are generally only
used if the judges or politicians want to specially destroy someone - some
radical minority lawyer, someone who is not playing the bribery game, somebody
who has dared to expose wrongdoing. Otherwise, even criminal acts by lawyers and
judges get a smiling cover-up.
You will almost certainly not find any lawyers to help you sue another lawyer
for wrongdoing. They are too scared of revenge by the judges. Even the lawyers
who are broke and unemployed and desperate for work, are too scared to sue
another lawyer. (Special caution: Lawyers may make false promises to you about
suing another lawyer, cash your checks and steal your money, and then refuse to
help you. And then you will have another lawyer who wronged you.) ....
It's getting worse and worse in America all the time. As the judges and lawyers
can get away with committing crimes, they are getting more open and blatant,
committing felony crimes in broad daylight, because they know no one will stop
them or bring them to account.....
The growing American nightmare
No one should ever again be fooled by USA propaganda about being the "land of
freedom". Those who are thinking of traveling to, visiting, or working in
America, should think again. It might not be worth the risk of being in a
country that has one of the most crooked legal systems in the world.
