On 21 May 2012 the Victorian Government is conducting an inquiry into the absence of professional standards in the Australian (Victorian) legal profession, and at the broad intersection of the legal profession with the upper benches of all three branches of State and Federal government (benches that these days look like little more than an exclusive lawyers club).
This unprecedented and history making trial starts at 10.00 am on Monday 21 May 2012 and will be held at 55 King Street, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
Recently Gillardtined Former Australian Attorney-General, the Federal MHR for Barton, Robert McClelland is the first of 9 present and past Parliamentarians / Cabinet Ministers (including Prime Minister Julia Gillard, new Australian Attorney-General Nicola Roxon and, at State level, Victorian Premier Ted Baillieu, Victorian Attorney-General Robert Clark, former Victorian Premiers John Brumby, Jeff Kennett, and former Victorian Attorney-General Rob Hulls, all up, 9 Federal and State Ministers of Parliament, 16 past and present Judges, 10 past and present Government Agency Heads and over 50 Senior Public Servants – (all lawyers) who have been Summoned to Appear) to confirm that he will cooperate in the production of documents and in testifying at these hearings.
“Newsworthy? When was the last time so many State and Federal MPs, Judges, Government Agency Heads and senior public servants were keel-hauled into their own forum, according to their own rules, to be questioned on such weighty (and self-incriminating) matters – where the rules of the forum have stripped them from any claims to refuse to answer questions on the grounds of self-incrimination?
This is an open invitation to the media and to the public to attend the hearings. Come and, look, listen, laugh and learn as leading Australian lawyers, lawmakers, governmen and governwomen (the Australian lawyerocracy elite) are put on trial and compelled to answer questions that they have been avoiding, for generations.
FOR ALL MEDIA ENQUIRIES – send an EMAIL to:21May12@jamesjohnson2020.com .
The following are just a few of the many bitter messages of hope and encouragement that I have received in the last day or so from ordinary Australian citizens who have suffered at the hands of Australia’s crooked government, the lawyerocracy that dominates and abuses and perverts justice and government to serve their own selfish, unlawful and human rights violating ways.
I am encouraged and enheartened by the positive messages of encouragement and support I have received from victims and survivors of Australia’s genocidal family courts, our ruling lawyerocracy and debtocracy, over the past 24 hours. I share below a typical form of letter I am writing to every survivor who comes forward to speak out (see below – and a printer friendly copy of my letter of thank you and hope can be downloaded, here).
And, while I cannot hope to reproduce every goodwill message here on this blog, I shall from time to time over the next fortnight be publishing some of the more encouraging and remarkable survival stories that people are kind enough to share with me.
The following are a few of the messages of support I have received in the last 24 hours or so.
LAWYEROCRACY ON TRIAL
James Johnson – a Lawyer/Barrister is putting Lawyerrocracy on trial… .. All Melbournians – put it in your diary 21st May at 10am @ 55 King St Melbourne… Not To Be Missed
I am a friend of Matt Norman’s & we too are fighting to hang onto our home through the illegal practices of the banks. There are so many of us now in this situation.
We had our 5 hour appeal in December last year in Supreme Court Melbourne – when not one shred of our evidence was looked at, the banks did not provide one single document that was subpoenaed and we were ambushed and railroaded by corrupt lawyers & judges beyond anything most people can even imagine.
We are now in the process of the banks trying to evict us….. it is not fun at all.
Do you take on any new cases?
If so, I would love to talk to you as I have a few ideas on how to save our home and would love to set a precedent in this country as there has not been one single win for a defendant fighting “foreclosure” in Australia, yet other countries have stopped the process very successfully.
Our problem has always been trying to find an ethical lawyer to help us who would not sell us out – and up until now – I thought that they did not exist…..
We started a class action last year – only to have the lawyer run off with all the $$ & only ever represent one person (of the 100 in the action) and was obviously told by the powers-to-be to stop the action & disappear – which he did. Most of us are exhausted, almost bankrupt & scathing of the legal profession and judicial system. It would be so nice to have our faith restored in finding a lawyer who gives a damn & prepared to go the hard yards to expose the truth.
Anyway, I have heard of your trial on 21st May & I am rallying the troops to be there to support you.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
|YOU ARE BRILLIANT
I am a political activist of past 31 years through activity in the trade unions and whistleblowing corruption in the Queensland Government. I now live in exile in Perth however I wish I had found you 6 years ago because you may have been able to assist me with at least some good advice. I am here now to tell you that I have had a 6 year battle with the family court of WA and it’s corrupt judges and registrars. My story is too long to put here but I am about to put together a chronological review of my entire case and I tell you it will even blow your very experienced mind.
I am presently self represented in 6 matters of litigation in 5 jurisdictions. Stress has become a way of life. I look forward to communicating with you in the future. The next email you receive from me is a generic update that was sent out yesterday to my group of supporters.
|YOU LITTLE RIPPER
I am praying for Mr Whitlam, that he lives long enough so that you can show how the Family Law Act was the final nail in the legal coffin.
IN TASMANIA OUR JUDICIARY IS OUT OF CONTROL
In Tasmania our judiciary is out of control. A recent criminal Court Trial in the Devonport Magistrates Court on the 9th December 2011 witnessed magistrate Michael Brett seriously pervert the course of justice by ordering the clerk to destroy legal documents presented to him by the defendant. This is recorded on the court transcript.
The defendant is seriously ill with Hodgkin’s Disease 4b, undergoing Chemotherapy and is being continuously harassed by the police because he had the temerity to advise the Tasmanian Attorney General, Brian Wightman, of the events as well as all the other Tasmanian politicians. Only a few responded to his letters but one remarkable absentee was Attorney General Brian Wightman. Seems, 3 emails plus 2 letters cannot budge him to respond or Laura Giddings premier of Tasmania or Will Hodgeman Opposition Leader.
I have added these links:
I have received hundreds of letters like this, especially from mothers, fathers and children whose lives have been destroyed as their divorce estates were drawn and quartered under a hail of unconstitutional, killer mock court processes, usually accompanied by a whipped up frenzy of blood curdling false allegations of violence, drunkeness and padophillia, all genocidally ground to the grist to fill the pockets and enrich the families of 30,000 – 40, 000 Australian family lawyers who by all accounts “are not REAL lawyers, anyway”.
Many of those I have protected and counselled over the years have fallen victim to the Australian Government’s silent Family Court / Child Support Agency death toll. More than a dozen victims a day, fathers, mothers and children, silenced by deaths, driven to suicide or occasionally accidental death or even more rarely (though grossly exaggerated by government and the media) murder / murder – suicide, by Government and lawyer induced wickedness, poverty, desolation and despair).
So 21 May 2012 will be a reckoning day for thousands, tens of thousands of ordinary Australian working class and indigenous families.
The following is the text of a typical letter of thanks from me to everyone who shows support and solidarity for this important cause ( a printer friendly version can be downloaded here).

LAWYEROCRACY ON TRIAL – 21 MAY 2012 at 55 King Street, Melbourne, Victoria Australia
Thank you for contacting me.
I have blogged many times and written dozens of lobbying letters to irresponsible governmen and governwomen – bureaucrats, judges, parliamentarians – and so-called human rights organisations about Australia’s genocidal family court system. All to zero response.
I am now standing accused of professional misconduct, lowering the dignity and reputation of the legal profession (in the eyes of the general public) on account of my whistleblowing activities. I doubt there has ever been a more crooked, or singularly stupid, inept, misuse of government powers before – even by the Australian Government.
Your story of abuse at the hands of lawyers is far too common. Solicitors, barristers, judges – they are all lawyers. And the overwhelming majority of parliamentarians and senior government bureaucrats are all lawyers too.
I am so sorry that hear that you were among the lawyer’s annual intake of 100,000 new families (100,000 dads, 100,000 mums and 300,000 children – let’s not forget grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins etc etc too) every year to be processed, lives and assets, drawn and quartered by the family law system every year to feed the families of about 30,000 – 40,000 wealthy family lawyers (between 1in 3, or as much as 1 in 2 of all Australian lawyers – and rising).
Your story of surviving the system (scarred and all), is sadly, very much rarer. Unofficial Child Support Agency sourced figures put the Family Court Death Toll at in excess of 12 Aussie Dad Dying daily in the aftermath of these terrible lawyer, judge, government agency crimes against families (crimes against humanity).
My documentary play “The Crucible” (links via my WordPress blogs) tells the story, via a mercy brief I took in January 2010 (the Australia Day Weekend) to preserve the life of another innocent, grossly abused parent and child (and 4 generations of extended Aussie family) like you. I tell the story using the actual transcripts (and yes the Judge doctored them at least once, perhaps twice).
As part of my “demonstration” to the Victorian Government on 21 May 2012 I am calling for “reasonable [actual] witnesses” to come forward and tell this Victorian Tribunal exactly what and why they think of the legal profession (with special emphasis on the crimes against humanity committed by the family law courts).
1. Are you coming to watch the proceedings on 21 May 2012? I am realistic enough to know that like all Spartacus up against a corrupted Empire, the most likely outcome is that I will be crucified (again) – hung up on the Apian way.
2. Would you like ‘your day in the box’ (realistically, 30 mins or less) to tell this Tribunal (1) exactly what and why you think of lawyers and (2) whether in your opinion my actions are destroying or rebuilding public opinion about lawyers?
3. Would you distribute news of this crooked lawyer court martial, and my call for survivor / witnesses to come forward and speak?
I am of course documenting this as we go, under the working title “Lawyerocracy on Trial”. Another irony that this court-martial has put back by 6 – 12 months two of my important documentaries in progress (working title “Solving Debtocracy” and “Lawyerocracy – The tyranny of Lawyerocracy in Australia – How Lawyers Hijacked our Government”)
It would be lovely to have “100 minute men [and women and children]” to speak up at these hearings. I am sure you will agree that getting an opportunity to speak like this will be a good healing process [and also help to build public and media attentions].
I will also be blogging some of the many heartfelt responses I’ve received (anonymously) at my lawyeroracyontrial blog – along with dozens of whistleblower statements.
I am desperately short of assistants and resources (because as you know there is an overwhelming amount to be done just to put this lawyerocracy horror at the top of the political agenda, let alone to get the media, the public, the legal profession, and the government forces to start to fix the problem. )
If you are part of a victim support organisation that can lend a hand (by promoting what I am doing and, later on down the track, assisting with fundraisings etc etc – just like the grass roots tea party movement in the States, or the Occupy Movements fund themselves worldwide via barbecues, concerts, passing the hat etc etc, then I ask you to give whatever time and support that you can.
Thank you again for your words, that are wonderfully encouraging, and for your own courage – merely to survive this corrupt family court system is an amazing sign of great personal strengths and virtues.
