Why is "Lady Liberty" and the "Scales of Justice" portrayed with a woman, scales and often with a sword and blindfold? Western civilization from the Greek and Roman eras used their Goddesses (yes they had 'gender equity' in their god hierarchies even in ancient times) Themis-mother to the Fates and goddess of law, order and justice, and the Roman goddess Justitia-who carried the sword, scales and blindfold which symbolized the authority and power (sword) balance with evidence (scales) and impartiality of "blind justice without prejudice or passion" (blindfold). It is instructive to note that many countries still use these "pagan" icons in paintings, statues and monuments for their courts, councils, halls of government, legal institutions and law schools. Implicit in the posture, costume and expression on these art works is the presence of compassion and temperance, focus and fairness. These are indeed noble ideals. We often literally must look up to see the full statue or representation. When we pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, the words we say include: "And to the Republic for which it stands, one nation, under God with liberty and justice for all." Lofty, powerful words. But do the actions of the American "justice system" prove these to be true?
Certainly no justice system in any country is without flaw and corruption at some level, but the degree to which the rule of law is applied "equally" and justice meted out impartially is important to the overall working and integrity of a nation. This weekend my uncle Arthur Angelo Munisteri, an attorney who served the public in New York state as a Deputy Special Counsel to the New York State Special Commission on Attica (Attica Prison Rebellion of 1971), as a US District Attorney for the Southern District of New York for many years then as the Chief of the Civil Division Office of the Deputy Attorney General New York Department Medicaid Fraud Control; passed away. In addition to his public service Arthur Munisteri also practiced law in private firms and after retirement acted as a legal consultant. He had faith in the rule of law in the USA, even though he witnessed first hand numerous frustrations trying to have it applied equally.
Our cousin, Nick Mangieri, was also native New Yorker. A Navy veteran of WWII, Nick served as Chief of Police in Alaska, Deputy Sheriff in California and as a private Detective in New York. He was a Federal Agent with the Department of Labor attached to the Inspector General's Fraud Division assigned to South Florida and Washington, D.C. Nick wrote non-fiction books about government corruption, cover ups and abuses of power in the USA. www.police-writers.com/mangieri.html
Broken Badge: The Silencing of a Federal Agent and Frozen Shield: Alaska Cover-Up, are both published by Veracity Press and are non-fiction books by Nick Mangieri. In the late 1970s, as a special investigator in Broken Badge he discovered widespread sexual coercion, fraud and other illegal activities in the administration of Washington, DC's Mayor Marion Barry. Nick was slandered and called a "racist" as part of a campaign to discredit him so his investigations would be shelved...sound familiar?! The same smear tactics are used today.
Nick battled against cover-ups and obstruction of justice by his superiors. Frozen Shield is an expose of his experiences as an Alaskan police chief pursuing massive land fraud and corruption by local politicians and apathy by state and federal officials to these crimes. This book also recounts the reprisals Nick encountered. Still he continued as a investigator and did his work privately after he retired from government service. Nick believed no one should be "above the law". He passed away in 2009.
On both sides of my family (paternal and maternal) we have relatives in law enforcement as police officers, detectives and highway patrol as well as relatives who are attorneys, judges and paralegals. Most of these work in the greater New York area and three of my brothers work as attorneys in the private sector in Texas and California. At one time, two of my brothers worked at the local, state (Texas) and the Federal (in Washington, D.C.) levels of government.
I worked as a paralegal/writer for Arent, Fox, Kintner, Plotkin, Kahn law firm over two summers during college; and then as an investigative researcher for Ralph Nader, Les Whitten and Jack Anderson on different projects when I was in my twenties, in Washington, D.C. My eyes were opened to the cover up with the Kennedy assassinations, the privilege of high power legal firms/clients/politicians and the manipulations by lobbyists and criminal networks. In addition I worked with earnest, crusading investigators on the staffs of all those men and their organizations, who showed me by their actions and restraint-that vigilance must never cease to keep the ideals of liberty and justice in America.
In 1999, I worked in a juvenile detention center in Texas as a teacher, but saw how the juvenile justice system did not work for boys who had no one to advocate for them and who became ciphers in the "child protection" and "juvenile justice" machines churning them and spitting them out. There is certainly a two tiered "justice system" for those who have money to afford competent legal representation and/or have connections to judges and law enforcement, and those who do not.
Our attention the past few weeks, when not being diverted by 'mass shooting events', has been summoned to follow the daily revelations about the failure of the United States justice system to investigate, arrest, charge and convict hundreds of high profile "players" in the political, legal, entertainment industry and intelligence communities. Their crimes from misdemeanors and felonies to treason - over decades - are finally coming to light for those who choose to "see" what is/has been happening within our country. The blindfolds are coming off.
The "top ten" of the high rolling 'white collar criminals' (including their family ties/connections/cults) continue with ongoing investigations into the Clinton family, the Biden family, NXIVM, George and Daisy Soros, The Richard Branson family and the UK Royal family. The nexus between all of these people are convicted sex offenders: Jeffrey Epstein and Harvey Weinstein, the Podesta Group and recruiters/groomers Ghilaine Maxwell, Clare, Edgar and Sara Bronfman and convicted then "released" Laura Silsby, who has changed her name to Laura Gayler. These people are just the tip of the criminal monolithic iceberg but shedding light on their activities starts the meltdown we need to navigate and cleanse the polluted waters of our Republic. Unfortunately only one of these people is in jail...Jeffrey Epstein.
The Clinton Foundation, The Clinton Global Initiative, The William J. Clinton Foundation, The Clinton Health Access, The International Center for Missing and Exploited Children (ICMEC) and the Ten Island Initiative, are all directly part of the Clinton empire holdings. All the above mentioned people are supporters and participants in these organizations.
Were they created to be: 1) be tax havens 2) cover for illegal activities including child trafficking, drug trafficking and organ trafficking 3) blackmail/leverage traps 4) off shore secure locations without legal accountability or surveillance...the evidence is piling up to document a resounding "Yes" to all these allegations.

Dear Readers, Colleagues, Friends and Family I urge you to be courageous in the times ahead. Keep to a path of integrity in your personal lives and in your work places. Keep alert to the shams, scams, disinformation and biased reporting and seek out other media to triangulate the reports you will see on the "news". Human beings and human nature have not changed over millennia. The goddess icons of law and justice from Egyptian, Greek and Roman times still remind us today of how rigorous we must be to utilize authority, impartiality, balance and insight in order to maintain civility, democracy and our humanity.
Ending this week with a challenge for you to pull out the sword from Lady Liberty and stem the blood flowing from violence, terror, injustice, torture, lies and predation. Staunch the wounds of shame, dishonor, inaction and cowardice. Ask for the guidance of the divine light and protection of God-in whatever name you pray. We need a whole, united response to the darkness and evil attacking us from within and without. Come on out and join the fight.
Music from a man who knew many levels of pain, trouble and triumph...Johnny Cash. This music video displays criminals from all sectors of society over time. Powerful-I suggest you watch and listen more than once. Go on...you still have time:
