A Thought Experiment and Vantucky-Clark County Corruption

A Thought Experiment and Vantucky-Clark County Corruption

by Jim Craven/Omahkohkiaaiipooyii


Suppose as a thought experiment the following: Suppose I were outside say a bank or a park, trying out my new cellphone camera features, and I hear an alarm go off outside a bank or hear a woman’s screaming from the park, see and film someone running from the scene and jumping into a waiting car and speeding off in obvious flight.

Do I yet have knowledge that a crime was committed? No not for sure only indicia of a possible crime and possible evidence of a possible perpetrator. But what if I see a newscast that at precisely that place and time shown on my phone camera, a crime of bank robbery or perhaps rape in the park took place. Now do I have knowledge of the commission of a crime? A reasonable and prudent person would say yes, I have enough to take my tape evidence to law enforcement.

Suppose the perpetrator was flashing gang tatoos and colors and I have fear of reprisals from the gang against me and my family if I come forward. Is this tape of potential evidence of potential crime my personal possession to keep and use as I wish, perhaps sell it to some tabloid or news program? Can I decide that the  hassle of going to court and being interviewed by police is too much; suppose I have had bad experiences with law enforcement and do not trust or want to go near them; suppose I am political and likely a target their surveillance, and not likely to be welcomed or listened to or my evidence acted upon. Do I get to make the “choice” if or if not to report the commission of a crime to law enforcement? The answer is not only no, but for me to fail to report knowledge and evidence of the commission of a felony crime that I have acquired, no matter how, is itself a federal crime:

18 U.S. Code § 4 – Misprision of felony

Current through Pub. L. 113-185. (See Public Laws for the current Congress.)

Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.
This would also be an act of Obstruction of Justice per se:

18 U.S. Code Chapter 73 – OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE

Current through Pub. L. 113-185. (See Public Laws for the current Congress.)

What is the reason for this law and legal mandate to report felony crimes one has acquired knowledge of the commission of? First of all justice awaits the victims of the past and present, plus there will likely be victims in the future if the perps are not exposed and brought to law enforcement. Secondly, there are likely other crimes and potential perps involved; this may be a predicate felony that triggers other related but separate felonies like conspiracy against rights, conspiracy under color of law, etc. Thirdly, law enforcement cannot be everywhere and has to rely on reporting by citizens, which means, they have a responsibility to be approachable, not to be corrupt or abusive, to be competent and not derelict in duty, and willing to go forward with hard evidence and investigation without fear or favor to anyone.

Some Facts

I worked on the election campaign of Governor Inslee and was asked to send any evidence of corruption in Clark County to his info address. Another time, I was at a private reception, and briefly congratulated and thanked him for his vote while in Congress against the Iraq War and said that there was serious corruption in Clark County and at Clark College, that real people were being hurt and students defrauded and he said to send to him what I have which I have done. The following has also been sent to Washington Attorney General Ferguson, Clark County Sheriff’s office, Clark County Prosecutor, Vancouver Police, Washington Human Rights, Washington Education Association, Washington Court of Appeals and was supposedly reviewed by Clark College Trustees:














In these documents, which I had no hand in originating, no prior knowledge of, no hand in or influence on their content, there is direct physical evidence of perjury by sworn testimonies Bob Knight, president of Clark College in two separate venues and hearings opposed by the sworn testimonies, plus additional evidence in documents and tapes of hearings of two union officers; perjury and obstruction of justice for sure was committed by someone and Governor Inslee, Attorney General Ferguson and others have knowledge of it and thus themselves a duty to report. Certainly they have a duty not to obstruct, aid and abet, suborn after the fact and cover-up the perjury. There is also evidence of Fraud by Wire (my name kept on course schedules to draw in students while I had been taken out of the classroom, unvetted adjuncts hired to replace me all BEFORE a discipline a Star- Chamber-like hearing (when I got one) and appeals to determine if or if not I would be teaching. There is also direct evidence of other crimes such as criminal solicitation of me to unwittingly sign-off on a faculty member’s false submission, aided and abetted by the Dean at the time and division chair, to join-in an apparent conspiracy to file a false and contrived submission for medical benefits (while on unpaid leave after he previously submitted a request for unpaid leave, and when finding out that he would lose medical coverage, contrived a false claim of workdays (including on weekends) and supposed preparation work to be done while on unpaid leave  exactly enough to qualify for medical benefits while on that unpaid leave.  I rescinded my endorsement as Economics Department Head (where previously they were denying there was a separate economics department of that I was its head) after I learned that that faculty member had made a previous request (unknown to me the department head, with implications on my own teaching and loads and recommendations for replacement) and the second was to clean up the first so as to qualify for medical benefits. This involves several felony crimes. RCW 42.20

Furthermore, these documents plus others, also went to the Clark College Board of Trustees who offered me $100,000 hush money, signed off by the AG, knowing yet voted to fire me with clear evidence of perjury and other felonies on the part of the president who initiated and coordinated complaints through proxies, then assigned the investigators when there were any, then acts as the assessor of discipline and even appeal authority on his own complaints and findings or those of his hired guns:

The duplicated official personnel file was mailed overnight yesterday afternoon.

Attached is a Tenure Purchase Agreement and Settlement and Release Agreement for your client’s consideration.  The May 2, 2014 date reflects 21 days from this Friday and as you are know is required by the Age Discrimination in Employment Act.  Please let me know by 1:00 PM Friday whether Prof. Craven wishes to have the 21 days to consider the agreement.  I think its best to inform Mr. Stonier by that time so he can inform the 6 faculty members and the College can inform all of their substitutes that the hearing may be rescheduled to allow for the 21 day consideration period.

Bonnie Y. Terada

Senior Counsel |Office of the Attorney General

Regional Services Division, Vancouver

1220 Main Street, Suite 510 |Vancouver, WA  98660-2964


1.      $100,000 buy-out of your tenure

2.      Waiver of all claims against the College  (paragraphs 4 and 5)

3.      Agreement not to lodge complaints against College (and its officers/employees) with any state agency (paragraph 6) ever for anything

4.      Mutual agreement to not disparage the other (paragraph  7)

5.    Non-disclosure of even the existence of the agreement


Thank you for putting together a settlement proposal.  I have had an opportunity to review your settlement offer with my client.  We are particularly concerned about the gag orders contained in the proposal.   Simply put, Prof. Craven is unwilling to compromise his legal and ethical obligations to identify and report malfeasance. 

Again, thank you for taking the time to make an offer.

Of Counsel


My response (took less than 21 seconds not 21 days to consider and reject the $100,000):

Under progressive discipline, each stage, the correctness and specificity of the charges, properly heard with due process for all, with all findings properly reviewed, is a predicate for the next and higher stages of discipline. Further, in this case, with a series of outright kangaroo courts, each stage and how it was handled, is not proof of a pattern of conduct on my part with charges properly proved, but rather evidence of a pattern of conduct and mens rea on the Clark College that amounts not only to a cornucopia of torts, but of crimes as well.

If I were to even entertain this this “settlement offer”, I would, in my opinion as a citizen required to be able to read, understand and comport myself with the law, with the law being required to be specific in terms and meanings and understandable by an average reasonable and prudent person,  be guilty of taking money and benefits to aid and abet the covering-up of real crimes causing real harm to real people; I would also be derelict in my duty as a public employee; I would also be complicit in future damages and harm to innocents by aiding in the cover-up and keeping in place individuals I know from their conduct alone, are unfit to be in any kind of position of trust or in education–students are being defrauded and worse.

I would also be betraying students like [deleted] and so many others to walk away from what I know is out-and-out fraud going on in the classroom and that is why they must have me gone because I will get even more evidence of it and take it to accreditation and other venues.

Here is some law that applies in this case and why I cannot be bought off and I actually regard this offer as a further attempt at Obstruction of Justice and Misprision of a Felony and an attempt to use public funds to get me to become an accomplice. Otherwise, I should be charged and convicted of false statements to law enforcement officers and attempting to use law enforcement for my own  personal agenda–which I urged them to do if they thought I was either lying, playing games or attempting to use law enforcement and public resources for my own personal agenda.

Please see below why I cannot accept either a settlement or any “findings” that have the legitimacy of the findings of a nazi court against a Jew or a KKK courtroom against an African American… We can walk through my words word by word, comma, by comma, and they are all defensible, on-point, accurate, on union and pedagogical issues, on protected or supposedly protected venues for exchanges on critical issues for union members, and in the case of 7 days off and 8 days off there was not even a hearing or formal complaint.

Here is part of what I am being offered $100,000 of public monies to cover-up and what Governor Inslee, the WEA, Attorney General Ferguson, Clark College Board of Trustees and others have knowledge of and have not reported per their duty under 18 USC 4 and 73:

FROM A SWORN BRIEF SUBMITTED TO ARBITRATION BY LISA LEWISON OF THE WEA: JAMES CRAVEN Vs. Clark College Grievant’s Closing Argument Lisa Lewison hereby submits her Closing Arguments on behalf of James Craven: I. INTRODUCTION On Thursday, November 3, 2010 and Friday, November 4, 2010, an arbitration took place on the Clark College Campus in Vancouver, Washington, involving Clark College (hereinafter “the College”) and the Clark College Association of Higher Education (hereinafter “the Association”). II. STATEMENT OF THE ISSUE The Association and the College stipulated to the following issue statement: “Did Clark College have just cause to impose a 108-day (2-term) suspension to Professor Craven? If no, what is the appropriate remedy?” NOTE: Lynn Davidson of the WEA and Dr. Marcia Roi of Clark College AHE both testified, under oath and penalty of perjury,  for the second time in a second venue, the following:

“WEA-Riverside Director Lynn Davidson and AHE President, Dr. Marcia Roi testified to a labor management meeting they attended with President Bob Knight and Vice President Rassoul Dastmozd on Friday, November 9, 2007. AHE President Roi testified she told President Knight there was a “…morale problem on the campus.” President Knight responded “There is not a morale problem; morale will improve when we get rid of Professor Craven.” This was never refuted by management in the hearing. Ms. Davidson testified she was “shocked” President Bob Knight would say something like this to union representatives, and based on her expertise was troubled because his statements showed the union “should expect animosity by the President and the College in future dealings” related to Mr. Craven.

This testimony of Dr. Marcia Roi and Ms. Lynn Davidson, at the arbitration hearing subsequent to the ESD appeal hearing with ALJ Knutson, directly contradicts the sworn testimony of President Knight that he never made nor would ever make the statement “There is not a morale problem; morale will improve when we ‘get rid’ of Professor Craven”

[Note Update: This testimony was again sworn under penalty of perjury for a second time in my recent termination hearing by both Lynn Davidson and Dr. Marcia Roi; This testimony from the transcript of Mr. Knight’s testimony in an ESD appeal hearing below was denied for a second time, in a second venue, under oath and penalty of perjury, by Mr. Knight in another official hearing (termination hearing). Now we do not simply have mutually contradictory sworn testimonies in different venues at different times, but now fundamentally opposing sworn testimonies in the same hearing on the same transcript and nothing was noted or reported to law enforcement (perjury by somebody plus derivate felonies from perjury in public employment while on official duties) by the hearing examiner (a former Kelso judge Mr. Stonier), nor by the AAG Ms Terada, nor by the WEA attorneys per their duties as Officers of the Court, Members of the Bar, a judicial officer acting in a quasi-judicial capacity. Please note also, that for the fourth time, in four separate venues, Emma Kim, formerly of Clark College HR who refused to keep a secret file on me, testified to the following under oath and penalty of perjury:

Mr. Craven testified to and shared in an email with Ms. Lewison a poignant vignette from Alice in Wonderland that captured, disturbingly well, the College’s actions and approach to due process and the investigation of the allegations made of Mr. Craven. Chapter 12. Alice’s Evidence:

In the meantime Alice has grown so much that she upsets the jury box when she gets up. She hastily tries to put them back in their places. She tells the King that she knows nothing about the stolen arts, which he considers very important. The White Rabbit has to correct him again.

Then the King reads from his notebook, stating that all persons more than a mile high must leave the court. Alice refuses to leave because she suspects that he made up this rule, and the King tells the jury to consider their verdict.

Then the White Rabbit brings in a letter, which serves as evidence. The letter contains a verse, written in someone else’s handwriting, which clears up nothing at all. However, the King thinks that it is very important but Alice corrects him and explains the verse proves nothing. Eventually the King asks the jury for the third time to consider a verdict, and now the Queen contradicts him and says that there should be a sentence first and a verdict afterwards.”

Alice is a fictitious character, yet the reader can find both empathy and humor in her predicament. Sadly, for Mr. Craven, there is no humor to be found in the lack of due process he was afforded, causing him to suffer significant financial and professional injury due to the College’s flippant and cavalier managerial actions.”

Lisa Lewison WEA Representative


Further there is clear evidence of students being serially defrauded with the hiring of unvetted and patently unqualified adjuncts by their behavior and conduct alone. What kind of real teacher would dare apply for a position teaching economics and demand not to be vetted by the senior economist or to have anything to do with him or her? Why would people who have never met me want nothing to do with me and what have they been told?

RCW 49.44.010

Blacklisting — Penalty.

Every person in this state who shall wilfully and maliciously, send or deliver, or make or cause to be made, for the purpose of being delivered or sent or part with the possession of any paper, letter or writing, with or without name signed thereto, or signed with a fictitious name, or with any letter, mark or other designation, or publish or cause to be published any statement for the purpose of preventing any other person from obtaining employment in this state or elsewhere, and every person who shall wilfully and maliciously “blacklist” or cause to be “blacklisted” any person or persons, by writing, printing or publishing, or causing the same to be done, the name, or mark, or designation representing the name of any person in any paper, pamphlet, circular or book, together with any statement concerning persons so named, or publish or cause to be published that any person is a member of any secret organization, for the purpose of preventing such person from securing employment, or who shall wilfully and maliciously make or issue any statement or paper that will tend to influence or prejudice the mind of any employer against the person of such person seeking employment, or any person who shall do any of the things mentioned in this section for the purpose of causing the discharge of any person employed by any railroad or other company, corporation, individual or individuals, shall, on conviction thereof, be adjudged guilty of misdemeanor and punished by a fine of not less than one hundred dollars nor more than one thousand dollars, or by imprisonment in the county jail for not less than ninety days nor more than three hundred sixty-four days, or by both such fine and imprisonment. [2011 c 96 § 42; 1899 c 23 § 1; RRS § 7599.]

Real Victims, Real Crimes:

Craven was a wonderful teacher, and the way he disappeared was all too strange. I wish I would have had the pleasure of being taught by him all quarter, but it seemed as though bigger powers were at play. Unusual man with big opinions, but he knew how to get a message through, he was incredibly helpful and I was enjoying economics.

Mr. Craven is an unusual teacher, however, if you want to learn the subject he is excellent. I had him fall 2013 at Clark and after about 5 weeks in he disappeared. Clark fired him because of departmental politics. There was no notice to students and the sub i received was horrible. I regret spending tuition here to have inconsistent teaching.

Subject: Macro Economics Hi, my name is Michael . I took your micro economics class last spring quarter. I was registered for your macro economics class this fall, but I recently checked my schedule and I’ve been switched to a guy named Kraley. This isn’t okay with me, I was wondering if there was a reason, that you knew about, why I was transferred. It also could have been a glitch in the system, and I could still be registered for your class. It’s unlikely though, and I would really like to take your class, not Kraley’s class. I left you a message on your answering machine, but you may not get it until Monday. I will try to catch you on Monday, and hopefully we can figure this out. -Michael

As far as Clark lying to me about who my professor for Economics would be, I feel very ripped off, and wish there was something I could do. I wish you the best of luck on your hearing, and I hope that no injustice is found so that you can continue to teach in the incredible way that you do! I thoroughly enjoyed your micro econ class. You truly are a fantastic teacher! -Michael (P.S. if anything I’ve said in my emails thus far can help you in any way, feel free to use them!)


Why are these facts, and they are facts, no grounds for the impeachment of Governor Inslee, Attorney General Ferguson and all those others who were given, as you dear readers have also been given, knowledge of felony crimes having been committed and in the case of the AG not only failed to act on this evidence and acquired knowledge, but proceeded to full-court press to continue the cover-up and subornation of perjury and obstruction of justice after the fact–if not before–and thus this is all covered under the statutes cited?

How would any of the readers appreciate someone having knowledge of felony crimes having been committed against themselves and loved ones and not only refusing to report it but actively trying to cover-up and obstruct justice that awaits?

I have six boxes of documents that it took subpoena to get after repeated obstructions of public records requests and will be published on a special blog for those other victims of the same perps and modus operandi.

China ‘to protect whistle-blowers’ amid corruption fight

This picture taken on 24 September 2013 shows Chinese 100 yuan (RMB) bank notes being counted at a bank in Huaibei, in eastern China's Anhui provinceChina has embarked on an anti-corruption drive since President Xi Jinping took office in 2012

Chinese authorities say whistle-blowers will be protected, amid an ongoing crackdown on corruption.

China’s top prosecuting body said it has, for the first time, laid out rights for those exposing malpractice.

It urged citizens to file reports in a “lawful manner” via official channels and promised a quick response.

China’s President Xi Jinping has prioritised stamping out corruption in the Communist Party and government since he took office in 2012.

The BBC’s Martin Patience in Beijing says the fact that the authorities are trying to reassure the public in this fashion highlights the reluctance many whistle-blowers have about coming forward.

Those reporting official wrongdoing and corruption sometimes face violent reprisals, says our correspondent.

Evidence of Serious Corruption, Political Patronage and Lawlessness: Clark College, Washington State Agencies, and Unions

To the readers:

I could have avoided my termination as professor of economics and got $100,000 on top of it. All I had to do, according to this last minute hush money offer http://jimcraven10.wordpress.com/2014/05/04/hush-money-and-sealed-settlements-to-cover-up-crimes-are-crimes-not-torts-no-need-to-cover-up-what-is-clean-only-what-is-dirty/ presented on the last day before a termination hearing, was: 1) mutual non-disparagement (give up right of freedom of speech and legal duty); 2) never to file any kind of complaint for any reason ever against any Clark College employee or agent of Clark College (and thus drop/repudiate any present and pending ones) ever;

This would have meant turning my back on evidence of serious crimes against the students, the institutions, myself and my own family, against others driven out of Clark College by some of the same player and modus operandi.

Why the hush money offer at the last minute if their case was clean? What legal authority does anyone have to use public monies to permanently immunize from prosecution or complaint any public employee or agent of a public agency preemptively? No need to cover-up or try to silence with hush money what is clean only what is dirty.

This is only the beginning. I messed up in some hires, I took representations of credentials that turned out not to be as represented, and witnessed apparent crimes by some of them that I reported in good-faith and with full accountability (no back room or anonymous allegations) and  will fully expose who, how and the evidence of their unfitness to be in any kind of a classroom. Students are being horribly defrauded and the worst kind of thief, fraud and poseur there is is someone teaching without real credentials and experience and thus stealing some of the future of the students who need competent teaching and meaningful courses to survive in the kind of world that is evolving. Clark College is riddled with frauds and poseurs hired as “team players” by a frightened and despotic administration who like all those without serious credentials in education, have no reason for seek value or even recognize serious credentials in others.

Here is their case and please look at Appendix 4 the Criminal Complaint filed some time ago and presented to the Clark College Board of Trustees to which they had no rebuttal with counter evidence, law or reasoning.

U.S. Navy Unconstitutional Searches of Computers in Washington State for Child Pornography

Yes, the U.S. Navy has searched your computer looking for kiddie porn

Buried  under a small headline in today’s Seattle Times is a story about sensational military and police misconduct.

“’[I]t has become a routine practice for the Navy to conduct surveillance of all the civilian computers in an entire state to see whether any child pornography can be found on them, and then to turn over that information to civilian law enforcement when no military connection exists.’ … Senior 9th Circuit Judge Andrew Kleinfeld found that the case ‘amounts to the military acting as a national police force to investigate civilian law violations by civilians.’”


If you live in Washington State, your computer has been searched by U.S. Navy criminal investigators for evidence of child pornography; and if they found any, they turned it over to civilian police so you can be prosecuted by civilian authorities — even if you’ve never had anything to do with the Navy.  They did this to everyone in the entire state.  And they did it without probable cause or search warrants.  They did it to me, and they did it to you, and they did it to your mother and your children.

This is so unconstitutional the Ninth Circuit has decided to allow a scumbag convicted of distributing child pornography to walk free, in order to emphasize it’s sooo unconstitutional the government can’t be allowed to get away with it under any circumstances.

More of the Same Corruption With Public Monies at Clark College, Vantucky, Clark County and Beyond




ResetAAFont size:PrintShareThis



Court of Appeals of Washington,Division 2.

Kathryn SCRIVENER, Appellant, v. CLARK COLLEGE, Respondent.

No. 43051–7–II.

Decided: September 4, 2013

Sue–Del McCulloch, Law Offices of Sue–Del, McCulloch LLC, Portland, OR, for Appellant. Catherine Hendricks, WA Attorney General, Seattle, WA, for Respondent.PUBLISHED OPINION

¶ 1 Kathryn Scrivener, a nonpermanent member of Clark College’s faculty, sought one of two tenure-track positions at the college. When the college hired younger candidates to fill those positions, she sued the college for age discrimination under Washington’s Law Against Discrimination Act1 (WLAD). The trial court dismissed the suit on summary judgment. Because Scrivener does not demonstrate that Clark College’s nondiscriminatory explanations for hiring the other candidates were pretext for discrimination, we affirm.


¶ 2 In 1994, Clark College hired the then 42–year–old Scrivener as a part-time English instructor and, beginning in 1999, she signed annual contracts to be a temporary, full-time’ English instructor. Then, in the 2005 academic year, Clark College sought applications for two tenure-track faculty positions, and Scrivener was one of 156 applicants.

¶ 3 Of the 156 applicants, 50 were over 40 years old, and 106 were younger than 40. The screening committee, comprised of five tenured faculty members, reviewed the 152 applications that met the positions’ minimum requirements. The screening committee narrowed the candidate pool and interviewed 13 candidates, including Scrivener. Of these 13 candidates, 7 were over 40 years old and 6 were under 40.

¶ 4 After observing and evaluating the candidates’ teaching demonstrations, the screening committee identified finalists: Geneva Chao, Jill Darley–Vanis, Scott Fisher, and Scrivener. The screening committee forwarded the names, application materials, and candidate evaluations to Clark College President R. Wayne Branch and its Vice President of Instruction, Sylvia Thornburg.2

¶ 5 Branch and Thornburg reviewed the materials and interviewed the four finalists in May 2006, before hiring Chao and Darley–Vanis, who were both under 40 years old. Branch and Thornburg “agreed that of the four finalist[s], Ms. Scrivener was ranked last.” Clerk’s Papers (CP) at 59.

¶ 6 Scrivener sued Clark College under the WLAD, claiming age discrimination. In a summary judgment motion, Clark College attached declarations from Branch, Thornburg, and Clark College Human Resources Associate Director Sue Williams. Branch, who is older than Scrivener, explained that as president, he made the final decision on faculty hiring, but Thornburg also participated and offered input. Branch and Thornburg hired Chao and Darley–Vanis based on the screening committee’s recommendations of the finalists, candidate interviews, reference checks, and the needs of the English department and college as a whole. Branch stated that candidate interviews involved questions relating to how the finalists would meet the college’s goals and functions; at no point did Branch, Thornburg, or the candidates discuss or consider the candidates’ ages.

What is Unclear About 18 USC 4 (Misprision of a Felony) The Duties of Law and Why

What Exactly is Unclear in 18 USC 4  and the Social Imperative For It and Related Statutes?

18 U.S. Code § 4 – Misprision of felony

Current through Pub. L. 113-121. (See Public Laws for the current Congress.)
Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

Throughout all of human history, the few have ruled the many, through a succession of modes of production within and driving wider social formations. Those few who ruled the many, no matter how well armed ruthless they and their minions, they knew they were outnumbered. They also knew well that the masses, when they reach the point where even death is better than what they are forced to endure, can be a powerful and vengeance-driven force with horrible deaths awaiting them and their families.

A Case Study of Obama and Petraeus

Psychopaths dominate the halls of power in both the United States and throughout the world. The current economic, political, military and legal system breeds psychopaths, rewarding psychopathic behavior and punishing those with conscience and integrity.

Psychopaths will naturally be drawn to and converge at the apex of the power pyramid as much from their own drive for ambitious power as the hierarchical system that both requires and reinforces those who can comfortably operate without conscience, guilt or any genuine level of empathy toward others.

Psychopaths are in love with power and risk taking, masters of manipulation, self-serving opportunism and self-aggrandizement, and hold doctorates in deceit and deception. Psychopaths are super intelligent charmers who are highly skilled at playing others in order to get what they want. They are keenly perceptive at reading people, understanding their motives and values, brilliant at learning their weaknesses and blind spots, and highly effective at inducing both sympathy and guilt in others.

Lessons From the Animals: Similies, Metaphors and Allegories of Irregular and Asymmetric Warfare Also Useful for Whistle-Blowers and Anti-Imperialists

Lessons From the Animals: Similies, Metaphors and Allegories of Irregular and Asymmetric Warfare Also Useful for Whistle-Blowers and Anti-Imperialists

Lessons From the Animals: Similies, Metaphors and Allegories of Irregular and Asymmetric Warfare For Whistle-Blowers and Anti-Imperialists

by Jim Craven/Omahkohkiaaiipooyii


Mark Twain once noted that “History does not repeat itself; but it does rhyme”. That is no doubt due to the fact that within the often slowly-changing contexts and structures into which humans are born and in which they live embedded (geographical, historical, social, cultural, legal, political, economic), given the scarcity of resources relative to needs, and the basic requirements of human subsistence, given human capacities for rationalization and intrigue, given limits of current technology, all are factors that  limit possibilities and diversity in human cognition, understanding, actions and tools/rationales for them.

Hush Money and Sealed Settlements to Cover-up Crimes are Crimes not Torts: No Need to Cover-up What is Clean–Only What is Dirty


This is a whole new ball game as it vitiates all lower court rulings limiting freedom of speech in the workplace for public employees and not only says that if discussing matters of professional responsibility, possible corruption or matters of significant social importance,  must the First Amendment and other Constitutional rights of  public employees be recognized, and that they should be encouraged to use those Constitutional rights, as those who know best the place where they work are in the best position to see and report malfeasance, corruption or the like, but, also,  that public employees indeed have a duty to report that would be dampened or discouraged without relevant and specified First Amendment and other (14th Amendment) Constitutional rights recognized and enforced. No one in power exposed by real and legitimate whistle-blowers ever takes reprisals openly or without having help from collaborators who act as toadies, scabs, snitches, proxies and paid (with public resources and jobs) whores of those in power who want to stay there and see themselves as somehow destined and entitled to be where they are or even higher.
keep the faith,
See 18 USC 4 (Misprision of a Felony), Chapter 73 (Obstruction of Justice), Chapter 13 parts 241 (Conspiracy Against Rights) and 242 (Conspiracy Against Rights Under Color of Law), RCW 42.20 (Misconduct of a Public Employee)…

Note to Readers: As the documents on this subject on this website will attest, I have made good-faith, fully accountable and evidence/law/reason-supported submissions to various federal and state law enforcement agencies on apparent crimes and a climate of corruption were I work as a public employee of the Government of the State of Washington. This is per my legal responsibilities as a citizen and public employee under 18 USC 4 (Misprision of a Felony), 18 USC 73 (Obstruction of Justice), and RCW 9A.080.10 (Official Misconduct), RCW 42. 40.030 (Right to Disclose Improper Governmental Actions–Interference Prohibited), 18 USC 241 and 242 (Conspiracy Against Rights and Under Color of Law) and other possible felonies.

Those in law enforcement that turned a blind-eye to legitimate and good-faith, law-mandated submissions of potential crimes being committed and or being planned or admitted to, are guilty of the above-mentioned crimes along with others. I will be publishing all my submissions to law enforcement along with supporting evidence presented along with any responses. As I do with all posts, I will drag some of them named out into the sunlight, transparency and accountability of the law and clear supporting evidence for the allegations made.




  • What would you do if say you were a cook ordered to serve un-inspected meat and you had already seen someone suffer food poisoning from it?
  • What would you do if say you were a co-pilot and your captain, a close friend and mentor, who had once saved your job, showed up for a flight drunk?
  • What would you do if you were a real teacher and saw all sorts of unvetted, unqualfied–even on paper–persons hired through the back door, in public employment, to “teach” subjects they had never taught nor had even the minimum qualifications to even apply for a full-time position in the subject in some cases, and students were losing opportunities for real teachers?
  • What would you do if you were a senior surgical nurse and saw a botched operation that resulted in a patient’s death caused by a new surgeon, hired through the backdoor by the chief of surgery, his uncle, and that was being covered-up by all who saw it?

Hush Money Offer–Never!

There are times when you have to obey a call which is the highest of all, i.e. the voice of conscience even though such obedience may cost many a bitter tear, and even more, separation from friends, from family, from the state, to which you may belong, from all that you have held as dear as life itself. For this obedience is the law of our being. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
