TO THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES November, 3, 2014
An Open Letter to President Obama
Is it compatible with the United States professed belief in Democracy and the protection of Human Rights, that the same United States run by its own active agents, appointed by President Reagan and President George W. Busch as US federal judges, a veritable WANDERZIRKUS in Alaska's Office of the Attorney General, and in Hawaii's District Court in Honolulu, both, which pose fraudulently as the Supreme Court of the sovereign nation, the Republic of the Marshall Islands?
Some facts supported by evidence of public documents:
For more than 30 years, active and semi-retired US federal judges, mostly from the Ninth Circuit, deprive the Republic of the Marshall Islands and its civil population of competent national tribunals and so their most basic human rights as provided for under the Declaration of Human Rights, Article 8. Since 2003, the illegal WANDERZIRKUS called Marshall Islands Supreme Court is run by:
1. United States Assistant Attorney General of Alaska, Daniel N. Cadra, aka illegal "chief justice" of the non-existing RMI Supreme Court who entered into a fiduciary relationship with a foreign nation by signing a so-called MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING with the Chief Secretary of the Public Service of the Marshall Islands. This MOU poses as his appointment as chief justice of the non-existing Marshall Islands Supreme Court. Assistant Attorney General of Alaska, Daniel Cadra, in addition to his illegal salaries, plunders the RMI Judiciary Fund which under Paragraph 104 is unequivocally set aside for the training of the RMI legal community and its community judges, due to the illegal clause in his illegal MOU that grants him “Legal Education in a country of his own choice”. Assistant Attorney General of Alaska, Daniel Cadra, aka illegal chief justice of the non-existing RMI Supreme Court, converts monies from this fund for his "legal education" where he purportedly learns to become a judge while at the same time being an active United States Assistant Attorney General of Alaska.
2. United States Magistrate Judge Barry Kurren of the District Court Hawaii, aka illegal "pro tem" judge in the non-existing RMI Supreme Court since 14 years! Judge Barry Kurren entered into a fiduciary relationship with a foreign nation by signing a so-called MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING with the Chief Secretary of the Public Service of the Marshall Islands for an annual salary for the position of associate judge of the RMI Supreme Court. Magistrate Judge Barry Kurren runs part of the WANDERZIRKUS in his chambers in the District Court in Honolulu.
3. United Stated District Judge Michael Seabright of the District Court Hawaii, appointed to office by President George W. Bush, aka illegal "pro tem" judge in the non-existing RMI Supreme Court since 2010. Judge Seabright entered into a fiduciary relationship with a foreign nation by signing a so-called MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING for an annual salary for the position of associate judge of the RMI Supreme Court. District Judge Seabright runs the third part of the WANDERZIRKUS in his chambers in the District Court of Honolulu.
In addition to knowingly and intentionally depriving the civil population of the Marshall Islands of a competent Supreme Court, to which the population is entitled under the Declaration of Human Rights, under the Marshall Islands Constitution, and pertinent legislated Acts, each of them jointly and singly support, aid and abet the criminal enterprise run by an ex US Peace Corps Volunteer, Carl B. Ingram, who illegally and by the overthrow of the RMI Constitution poses since 2003 as the chief justice of the High Court. Whenever Mr. Ingram files an Order/Judgment with the Clerk of the High Court that had been pre-arranged and obtained by illegal means, US Assistant Attorney General of Alaska, Cadra, US District Judge Michael Seabright, and US Magistrate Judge Barry Kurren aid, abet and affirm such Orders/Judgments. If it happens that such "opinions" that support the fraudulent judgments would be difficult to write and expose them prima facie, they simply “decline to review”. Not only are the present illegal incumbents concerned, there is also ample evidence in the form of public documents that show how US judges, posing fraudulently as RMI Supreme Court judges, a court that does even not exist, affirmed judgments of a corrupt High Court that dispossessed Marshallese citizen of their land in favor of American citizens. Such “opinions” boggle the mind and shock the conscience of anyone with a minimum of legal training.

Is it compatible with the United States professed belief and defense of Democracy, Freedom and the protection of Human Rights, that the District Court of Seattle, Western District and its by President Reagan appointed District Judge John C. Coughenour run on behalf of the United States the Republic of the Marshall Islands and its judiciary as a United States colony?

Marshall Islands High Court Case 2011-022 run as District Court Seattle Case CA No. 2009-047, and High Court clerks were ordered to transmit to the District Court Seattle all matters filed in the Marshall Islands High Court as follows:
To: Colin George .
Subject: CA No. 2009-047
See evidence of correspondence between the subordinate RMI High Court and its superior court, the District Court of Seattle: https://copy.com/Rx4XPccNH17rVQdn
In 2011 two plaintiffs, residents of the Republic of the Marshall Islands, who had filed a lawsuit in tort against defendants Microsoft, Yahoo, Google et al in 2009 in the High Court of the RMI, filed a new lawsuit against the same defendants in tort for Abuse of Process and Trespass on the case of the 2009 suit. Since the illegal chief justice of the RMI High Court, ex Peace Corps Volunteer Carl B. Ingram jointly with the US lawyers Roy Vitousek and David Strauss engaged in racketeering for the purpose to hinder the true course of justice, Ingram was likewise a defendant. Therefore, a pro tem judge had to be appointed to hear the case. The CEO's of the US corporations Microsoft, Yahoo, Google et al did not want an independent judge. Therefore they jointly brought their own judge to the Marshall Islands, District Judge John C. Coughenour of the District Court Seattle, Western District.
Despite that the case had been terminated by Entry of Default nihil dicit against the defendants, Judge Coughenour's clerk in a telephone call to plaintiffs in the Marshall Islands coerced them illegally into calling the District Court Seattle for a scheduling conference with Judge Coughenour. Plaintiffs, having no choice, duly called the District Court Seattle, where Judge Coughenour had not in mind to schedule, but where he over the telephone entirely without jurisdiction dispossessed plaintiffs of their acquired statutory right of Judgement in Default, setting it simply aside over the telephone. His illegal order he signed as John C. Coughenour, UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE, which the Clerk of the District Court Seattle transmitted to the High Court in the Marshall Islands. Two months later the Clerk George of the District Court Seattle transmitted a new Order, forcing plaintiffs by illegal legal process into involuntary servitude, namely a hearing of the case despite the fact that Default nihil dicit had duly been entered and terminated the case to which the defendants did not object.
District Judge Coughenour avoided the High Court and the bench and ordered the hearing in a Majuro conference room. There, Judge Coughenour of the District Court Seattle deceitfully donned a Marshallese judicial robe and presided over the terminated case in the clear absence of all jurisdiction. He forbade the plaintiffs to testify, but he heard the defendants GOOGLE, MICROSOFT, YAHOO et al unauthorized attorneys' arguments. A month later, the Clerk of the Seattle District Court transmitted to the Marshall Islands Judge Coughenour’s dismissal, based on the arguments of the non-authorized attorneys and he found that the High Court in the Marshall Islands lacked jurisdiction over the US defendants. However, at the same time he assumed jurisdiction and declared plaintiffs without hearing, facts and competent fact witnesses vexatious litigants, prohibiting their future access to the courts of the RMI.

Is it compatible with the integrity of the United States that American's taxpayers money that is given in aid to the Republic of the Marshall Islands is used to pay illegal salaries and other benefits to United States active government agents in order that they can trespass on the Republic of the Marshall Islands sovereignty, deprive the civil population of competent courts and engage in criminal activities that shock the conscience of independent observers?
In 1979, the Marshall Islands received partial independence and they enacted the RMI Constitution as their future legal framework of the new nation. On June 25, 1983 the United States entered into an Agreement concerning the Compact of Free Association with the Marshall Islands. Finally, in 1986 the Marshall Islands became independent. The COMPACT OF FREE ASSOCIATION was amended in 2003 and came into force on May 1, 2004. It affirmed that both governments and their relations as governments are founded upon respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms for all, and that the people of the Republic of the Marshall Islands have the right to enjoy self-government. It recognizes that the people of the Marshall Islands have and retain their sovereignty and their sovereign right to self-determination. Section 111 emphasizes again that the people of the RMI are self-governing. Section 171 explicitly and unequivocally states that the application of the laws of the United States to the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands by virtue of the Trusteeship Agreement ceased with respect to the Marshall Islands on October 21, 1986, the date the Compact went into effect. Section 174 unequivocally provides that the Government of the Republic of the Marshall Islands, and its agencies and officials, shall be immune from the jurisdiction of the courts of the United States. Section 175 (a) refers to a separate agreement that shall have the force of law for mutual assistance and cooperation in law enforcement matters, including the pursuit, capture, imprisonment and extradition of fugitives from justice and the transfer of prisoners, as well as other law enforcement matters. (b) Another separate agreement that has the force of law governs requirements relating to labor recruitment practices, including registration, reporting, suspension or revocation of authorization to recruit persons from employment in the United States, and enforcement for violations of such requirements.
US federal judges and a US Assistant Attorney General of Alaska fall not under the Marshall Islands labor recruitment as they are not “persons” for hire in the courts of the RMI, as far as such courts do exist. US federal judges and Assistant Attorney Generals who are appointed or have entered into a fiduciary relationship with the US Government and taken the loyalty oath upon the Federal/State Constitution can neither be hired by the Chief Secretary of the Public Service of the Marshall Islands by MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING and annual salaries, nor are these active US Government agents free to enter into employment in another sovereign country. Moreover, they are not free to conduct in the form of a WANDERZIRKUS a fraudulent RMI Supreme Court in their respective US statutory agencies.
The Compact of Free Association, paid by US taxpayers’ money aids or rather should aid, which it fails entirely, the Republic of the Marshall Islands in its efforts to promote the economic advancement and budgetary self-reliance (see Section 211) and the grants shall be used for assistance in education, health care, the environment, public sector capacity building, and private sector development, with priorities in the education and health care sectors. Nowhere is it mentioned that the United States can hold and maintain a RMI Supreme Court in the State of Alaska and the State of Hawaii, staffed by US Federal Judges and a US Assistant Attorney General. Section 211 (4) gives US grant assistance to support the efforts of the Republic of the Marshall Islands to build effective, accountable and transparent national and local government and other public sector institutions and systems. Nowhere does it mention that the grant assistance shall be available for the illegal hire of active US judges and a US Assistant Attorney General who trespass with their fiduciary relationship with the RMI actively US codified law. The grant assistance is given for an accountable and transparent national and local government and public sector institutions which excludes a WANDERZIRKUS fraudulently purporting to be an RMI Supreme Court in Hawaii in the chambers of the District Court and in Alaska in the chambers of the Attorney General. It also excludes that the District Court Seattle, Western District is the superior court for a subordinate RMI High Court, which has to file under Seattle District Court docket its cases. Explicitly, the United States provides under Section 221 services such as a United States Weather Service, United States Postal Service, United States Federal Aviation Administration, United States Department of Transportation, the Department of Homeland Security, the United States Agency for International Development, Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance. But, nowhere is it stated that the United States provide such service as the illegal fiduciary relationship with its Federal Judges and other US government appointees/employees, nor does the USA provide the service in form of chambers in the District Court of Hawaii and the Office of the Attorney General of Alaska in order that US federal judges and a US Assistant Attorney General can use US government facilities to uphold the fraudulent WANDERZIRKUS that provides them with an additional illegal extraterritorial annual income.
Ipso facto, US taxpayers money is used for illegal activities by US active government agents who derive an illicit income in that they dispossess the Republic of the Marshall Islands of a legal Supreme Court and legal and competent national tribunals. The urgent question arises whether such conduct is compatible with the integrity of the United States.
Is it compatible with United States integrity and its professed belief and defense of Democracy, Freedom and the protection of Human Rights, that such statutory and other US government agencies cover up the misconduct of US federal judges and a US Assistant Attorney General, since such misconduct and dispossession of rights does not concern US citizen but the inhabitants of the Republic Marshall Islands only.
It is not credible that over the last 28 years and since the COMPACT OF FREE ASSOCIATION is in force, the Joint Management Committee has not discovered the misappropriation of funds for illegal US judges in a court that does not exist, based on mere MEMORANDA of UNDERSTANDING, without legal appointment as provided for under the RMI Constitution, Article VI, Section 1 (4) and Article V, Section 11 (2). The RMI Constitution under Article VII, Section 1 (4) explicitly forbids the Public Service to enter into any contractual obligation with persons whose compensation is regulated by Act, as is the compensation of judges, and with persons whose appointment needs the ratification of the Nitijela. Such Memoranda and the drain of funds for illegal salaries as well as the plunder of the Judiciary Fund for Assistant Attorney General Cadra’s attempts to learn how to be a judge on e.g. a Reno golf course must be glaringly obvious. However, since 28 years no attempt has been made to stop the illegal activities that deprive the civil population of the RMI of their guaranteed rights and misappropriate US taxpayers money for the illicit profit of US judges.
The Attorney General of Alaska is aware since early 2012 that his Assistant Attorney General runs a WANDERZIRKUS fraudulently purporting to be the RMI Supreme Court in his office.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation is aware since early 2012 of these facts too.
The Supreme Court Judge of the Supreme Court in Hawaii has been aware since early 2012 of the facts that two federal judges use their chambers in the District Court of Honolulu for their part of the WANDERZIRKUS that purports fraudulently to be the RMI Supreme Court.
The chief justice of the District Court of Seattle, Western District is aware of the fact that the District Court and its Clerk George and its District Judge John C. Coughenour forced the RMI High Court into colonial status, delivering up to the District Court’s civil docket No. CA 2009-047 all matters filed in the independent High Court of the sovereign Republic of the Marshall Islands.
The Governor of Hawaii at least reacted to the information in that he sent the undersigned a list of names of Members of Congress and Senators who should be informed. They were duly informed. Aside a call from an unlisted number of an individual with a first name only that attempted to intimidate the undersigned, no action was taken by any of the US authorities.
In summa: Ipso facto and supported by vast evidence of public documents spanning almost three decades, the United States of America through and by its appointed and employed government agents deprives the population of the Republic of the Marshall Islands since more than 30 years of the most basic guaranteed human rights, namely the right to competent national tribunals. It tolerates and covers up the fact that US Federal Judges Seabright and Kurren and US Assistant Attorney General Daniel N. Cadra deceive the Marshallese people with a non-existent Supreme Court, a veritable WANDERZIRKUS they run in US statutory agencies for their own personal and illicit financial profit. In addition to that, the United States through and by its Federal District Court of Seattle, Western District with its District Judge John C. Coughenour not only invades the sovereignty of the Republic of the Marshall Islands for personal profit, but subjugates and colonializes the judiciary of the Marshall Islands to accept the District Court as the superior court to which it has to transmit matters filed in the High Court, and likewise forces the High Court to accept an Order/Judgment as valid that is in fact and deed signed as: John C. Coughenour, UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT JUDGE.
Dear Mr. President, with all due respect, it is not enough that the United States point constantly the finger to any other nation globally claiming that such and such nation violates human rights. It is not enough that the United States have made themselves an international police force that watches over purported human right violations in other countries and defends such purported violations with even the deployment of weapons while it is evidenced by a vast amount of public documents that the United States knowingly, willingly. and grossly violate the human rights in the Republic of the Marshall Islands. Such toleration and consequently the cover up in protection of its own appointed/employed government agents and statutory agencies make the United States appear prejudicial, bigot and gives rise to the presumption that United States government officials may violate human rights with impunity. If the United States are honestly attempting to better the world, then it is high time that the United States start at home and make an end to the consistent pattern of human rights violations in the Republic of the Marshall Islands.
Responsible steps are essential and urgently needed to secure the Republic of the Marshall Islands and its population protection of the most basic human rights, namely.to establish a legal judiciary with a competent national tribunal and an existing and functioning Supreme Court that forestalls any criminal enterprises in the High Court. Such in turn will strengthen its economy. Due to the illegal machinations by US judges over decades, and the possibility to obtain judgments by illegal means, affirmed by US Federal Judges in their chambers in the United States, the Republic of the Marshall Islands live in a culture of welfare and corruption with a serious crisis in the health service and educational service. This in turn led and continues to lead to a migration of able Marshallese that reaches meanwhile the 30 percent mark and must be considered a mass migration into the USA.
Susanne Kayser-Schillegger, Austrian citizen, resident and investor in the RMI and like many Marshallese a repeat victim of the rogue US judges.
