If there is ever a Constitutional Emergency, this story is certainly one! I am including the piece that I have read concerning the issues, and then my suggested resolution to follow. I certainly invite all to reply, and add their suggestions, because this is VERY serious, and is a trend I see occurring more often across the country! Here goes:

(Oct. 23, 2011) — The Post & Email as well as other organizations have been reporting on cases of judicial corruption throughout the country since its inception in August 2009, beginning with cases dealing, or rather, avoiding, the Obama eligibility question when precedent dictated that they should have been heard on the merits to determine if a usurper occupied the office of the presidency. It has become clear that the U.S. government is rife with corruption in all three branches.
We have covered the cases of Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III and George Raudenbush, both of whom are in jail for fabricated crimes, having had their civil and constitutional rights violated by a criminal syndicate which no law enforcement agency will touch. Other residents of the area have reported beatings, taserings, known child endangerment, and unlawful imprisonment while the FBI, TBI, District Attorney General, Tennessee Attorney General, and judges look on and even participate in the abuse of the citizenry. The right of a citizen to present evidence in front of a grand jury, as outlined in the Fifth Amendment, has been eviscerated in many locations.
Recently we learned of a case in Dallas, Texas wherein a successful businessman, Jeff Baron, has been placed under house arrest following a series of lawsuits and judicial decrees which violated Mr. Baron’s right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness as set forth in the Declaration of Independence as well as his First, Fourth, Fifth and Sixth and Seventh Amendment rights. While never convicted of a crime by a jury of his peers, Mr. Baron today is a prisoner in his own home who cannot make a living, leave his immediate area, or even send a private email to another person. A federal judge appointed a “Special Master” judge (page 4), Peter Vogel, who was paid at the rate of approximately $700/hour. Moreover, Vogel participated in having himself appointed both mediator and receiver over the same parties. As receiver, he has unlawfully profited from the assets from Baron and his companies.
How can a person in America be denied a jury trial when it is an inherent part of the justice system created by our Founders? Are citizens exercising their right to investigate government corruption and correct it?
While some have stated that the judiciary in the United States is “out of control,” lives have been damaged irreparably by tyrannical, corrupt judges and attorneys who have stolen, plundered and abused the assets of those who have earned them while enriching themselves and their cronies in seemingly unstoppable fashion.
In an astounding run-up of events over the last several years, in addition to the judicially-imposed restriction of his movements, Mr. Baron has been told that he cannot hire an attorney to defend himself nor to appeal the seizing of his company, its assets, his personal effects, and essentially, his life. The actions taken against Baron have been deemed “unprecedented in American history,” yet, according to the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights, they should never have occurred.
A sample letter which any American can send to members of the U.S. House Judiciary Committee urging them to launch an investigation into Judge Furgeson’s conduct, orders and behavior is here.
In the mid-1990s, Baron was working in corporate America when he became interested in computer programming. Working “evenings and weekends,” he learned enough to develop software to register domain names. Before long, hundreds of people “from all over the world” were contacting him to register their domains. Competition arose, but Jeff’s enterprise grew. “It’s easy for someone to copy what others are doing,” he said. “People took notice.” Larger companies with name recognition began registering their domain names. Jeff had focused on registering “short, generic domain names” as brief as two letters. One of the domains registered was “rewards.com.” Baron has been called an “internet pioneer” for his work which contributed to the explosion of the World Wide Web.
In 2003, Jeff was approached by a man who claimed to have a “big, huge team of web developers” who could assist Jeff in outpacing Google as an internet search engine. Jeff eventually signed a joint venture agreement to develop the new search engine with the man, the outcome of which he describes as “abysmal.” However, his domain registration endeavor continued to grow through 2005 with the favorable economy and internet climate at that time.
Eventually Jeff and his partner found an attorney to create various companies from the business which he had built to an estimated $100,000,000 level based on investor input. One of Jeff’s goals was to set aside money for his medical needs, as he is a severe diabetic. A business structure was put together by the attorney which Jeff described as “elaborate.” Some divisions were based in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Trusts were set up, and Baron stated that the attorney “put her friends in as trustees.”
In 2006, Jeff’s business partner filed a lawsuit against him, stating that the domain names which Jeff’s company, Ondova, had registered, belonged to him. Jeff then filed a lawsuit in Dallas with the purpose of determining who owned the domain names. The business partner then filed a counter-suit in the state of California, claiming that “Jeff Baron hijacked my assets.” The partner reportedly tried to enjoin Ondova from doing anything with the domain names. The partner was owner of the company “Netsphere.”
More lawsuits followed upon the initial suits; however, all were dismissed by various courts, including an appeal made by the business partner with the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. During that time, Baron reported that he “won every time,” although his business was suffering and the morale of his employees had fallen. There were a total of 20 companies by this time, and Baron had fought and overcome seven lawsuits.
Baron described his partner’s lawyers as “unrelenting,” and more lawsuits were filed. Despite his lucrative business venture, Baron had to find a lender which charged $100,000 just to issue the loan. Despite rising legal expenses and sinking revenue, he managed to pay off the loan, only to face a lawsuit from an attorney he had hired to manage a settlement agreement with the business partner. He began to fear for his life after discovering emails exchanged among several attorneys whom he had trusted which indicated that they wished him physical harm and even death.
Over the next several years, a string of lawsuits and court hearings ensued with the purpose of stripping Jeff of the wealth he had created by his own ingenuity. The case eventually reached Federal Judge Royal Furgeson, who eventually threatened Jeff with “the force of the Navy, Army” and “Marines” as well as death. Eventually Jeff’s company assets were seized and placed into receivership, and an appeal filed by one brave attorney on Jeff’s behalf was dismissed.
Money continued to be “siphoned off” by greedy attorneys after Judge Furgeson decided that Jeff shouldn’t be allowed to run his own company. Furgeson appointed a trustee who claimed complete control over Jeff’s assets and movements and threatened Jeff with dire consequences if he tried to hire an attorney. Lawyers fought among each other over Jeff’s money, and cronyism invited more to join the fray and plunder Jeff’s wealth, which continues to this day. Although Jeff initially was promised “the keys to his company” would be returned once he met certain conditions, he was ordered not to “touch” anything in his office, and on September 11, 2009, all company materials, any personal items and records were seized. Baron told us that even his personal email is monitored.
Throughout the ordeal, Mr. Baron’s health has suffered, and he has spent up to a month in the hospital at a time due to medical complications from stress compounded with his severe diabetic condition.
Baron has reported that the trustee, “Corky” Sherman and his lawyer, Raymond Urbanik, have taken approximately $2,000,000 of the company’s assets. More than 20 lawyers have plundered Jeff’s companies in a shameless display of corruption and conspiracy, including several he had hired to defend him.
Baron has described the receivership as “unreasonable and grossly unjust.” His appeal attorney, Gary N. Schepps, stated:
The lockdown injunction serves no legitimate interest. Mr. Baron should be allowed to transact business, receive wages, cash checks, earn a living, travel freely, retain counsel, and defend his interests…
Notably, receivership is not authorized as a means of providing ultimate relief or remedy…The District Court has discretion to impose a receivership only where it is ancillary to some other final equitable remedy sought in the property which is pending before the court.
Baron told The Post & Email that Dallas is home to a criminal cabal of attorneys operating “in their own little club.” The law firm of Texas State Senator Royce West has been paid a significant amount of money from the trust and registered what Baron described as another “questionable” claim.

RE: Jeff Baron CaseThis is absolutely an evil mess. This is exactly the same methods of illegally seizing assets that the courts did in the pre-revolutionary days. They were appointed by the crown, and given instructions to uphold the law, but because they had been given too much autonomy and usurped too much authority without authorization, that they were able to twist the law to suit their efforts to steal the property and assets of those they wanted to abuse; sometimes for political purposes, sometimes for personal reasons, and sometimes just because they could!
Wow! Everywhere I hear that Texas is the last vestige of true freedom. I guess, it's true that we're under assault everywhere.
Beverly, I think this is a rogue judiciary and law enforcement group. Once the citizens of TX know about this, I think they will make enough noise to put an end to this travesty of justice!
