Hello Condo Rice?!?! Any Bets On The Answer???

Vicki Jacobs
Voluntary Legal Services Program of Northern California

Dear Ms. Jacobs,
Thank you very much for the information. Especially the point clarifying the State Departments role which I had been told by State Department officials was almost non-existent and that bottom line authority lies with the County. Do you believe that it would be possible given the current political climate that the State Department may have been more active in seeking such information against me in order to take away my passport, especially given the fact that I have run an "anti-Neo-Con" website for years, and that the sum for which I am refused to even view one document pertaining to it's legality, has been fabricated? Before the site there was no problem with arrears whatsoever.
Mr. John Anthony Robles II

 

Dear Mr. Robles,

Thank you for your email. You have a situation that is unique to us.....we do very little work in family law and certainly haven't encountered a situation as complex as yours before. I'm afraid that it's beyond the abilities of our small volunteer-based organization to help with.

Coincidentally, I received some information concerning passport denials from a list serve I belong to. The situation being addressed by that list serve involved someone with a child support arreage who wanted to travel out of the country later this year and wanted to know what to do about a passport denial. I thought some of the information would be helpful to you:

Passport denial: While the answer you received from DCSS is
accurate, there is more to it. The federal passport revocation
program is very strict and the State role in the process is very
limited. DCSS is required to report to the State Dept. anyone with
arrears of $2500 or more and, once reported, to make a second report
when the arrears have been paid in full. With very limited
exceptions (eg. a parent dying overseas) the passport will not be
released again until the arrears have been paid in full. Only the
State Dept. can release the passport and a State Court does not have
jurisdiction to order the State Dept. to release the passport. Once
an obligor leaves the country, it is virtually impossible to make
them pay their child support arrears, so the State Dept. is very
reluctant to release a passport absent a very compelling showing of
good cause. Your best advice to your client may well be to pay the
arrears as soon as possible to allow the State Dept. sufficient time
to process the passport release.

Arrears Compromise: DCSS currently has statutory athority to
compromise arrears owed to the State/County, including the interest
owed on those arrears. Each case is considered on an individual
basis, taking into account the payment history and current ability
to pay. The application is a completed Income and Expense
Declaration which should be submitted to the County DCSS office that
is handling the case. The good news is that Sacramento is one of
the more agressive counties in negotiating compromise agreements.
The terms of repayment may involve a lump sum payment or a payment
plan over the course of a year or more. One note of caution,
however: any information provided to DCSS to determine eligibility
for compromise may later be used to enforce the support order.

I'm sorry we cannot be of further help. It would appear that short of hiring a local family law attorney to straighten out the child support dispute, it will be difficult to get the state department to release your passport.

The Neocon Threat to World Peace and American Freedom
by Paul Craig Roberts

Just as Goebbels said, some lies are too big to be disbelieved. It is this disbelief that is so dangerous. The inability of Americans to see through the Big Lie to the secret agenda allows the neoconservatives to escape accountability and continue with their plot.

The raids have left children without their fathers, and the Fair Haven community afraid to go outside, community leaders said. Arresting fathers in front of children, "they terrorized the children that were there," said Kica Matos (pictured), City Hall's point person for immigration policy.

In another home, a father and two children were detained until someone else came home, at which point the father was taken away. Since the mother could not be found, the two children remain parentless, DeStefano said.

"there is more than one Member of Congress willing to entertain real accountability for the Bush Administration, despite the insistence of US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) that impeachment is off the table."

 

"...it was complete abdication of a constitutional mechanism no matter what information comes forward."

In an interview with the Globe and Mail, Russian President Vladimir Putin has threatened to target Europe with missiles, including potentially nuclear weapons, in a dramatic escalation of his Cold War-style showdown with the United States.

Mr. Putin, in an interview at his summer residence outside Moscow, said he considers U.S. plans to build an eastern European anti-missile site to shoot down Iranian missiles a provocation aimed at Russia.

He repeatedly described the anti-missile system as a part of the American "strategic nuclear potential," whose existence he said requires Russia to retaliate to maintain the global "strategic balance."

Asked what he might do to retaliate, he said he would return Russia to the Cold War status where missiles were aimed at European targets.

08-30-2006           More Secret Documents on Mike Smith Sent by Mr. X

        I have been following the case of Mike Smith and have obtained some new documents on his trial that implicate an American who was working for the KGB and English Intelligence, and shed more light as to the bias of the prosecution in what appears to be the fabrication of the case against him. The following documents sent to me by Mr. X for publication make interesting reading for anyone interested in the world of spies and I encourage anyone who is able to, to publish them and share them in order to help Mr. Smith whose life has wrongfully been destroyed as a result of the case made against him. The first file has SECRET stamped all over it with several pages marked TOP SECRET as well. It is lightly redacted with several annotations as to the redactions by Mr. X..

08-12-2006 HOLES IN PROSECUTION of MIKE SMITH  More Secret Evidence in Mike Smith Case

More on the Mike Smith case. SEE:PRELIMINARY EVIDENCE RULINGS  DOWNLOAD:DOWNLOAD ZIP FILE 

Anonymous sent me a document on Mike Smith's case.

Hi John,
        Here is the document that has an important place in Mr.Smith's legal case. It shows how the judge decided which evidence would be admissible at the trial, and it reveals how the end result of a trial can be determined by the decisions at these pre-trial hearings. The main point that emerges is how the judge firmly comes down on the side of the prosecution, and he allows in a lot of highly prejudicial evidence - evidence which at best could only be described as speculative. It is apparent from the way these legal arguments developed that both the judge and the prosecution were following the directions of MI5, because the evidence which was ruled admissible followed the story that MI5 had focused on.
        The effect of the judge's rulings was to ensure that there was a strong bias in the trial towards the prosecution case, and this caused the defence team problems because most of the evidence was circumstantial. This imbalance in the trial towards the prosecution also placed pressure on the jury to convict, which is what they did.
        Reading through the arguments the prosecution presented to the judge, it can be seen that there was little or no evidence to support the link to Viktor Oshchenko, which was the crux of the prosecution case. All the defence objections were dismissed by judge Blofeld, who allowed the prosecution to run a case based on assertions for which no evidence existed. Even the MI5 witness Stella Rimington made it clear at the trial: there was no evidence of a link between Oshchenko and Smith.
        The judge can be seen to play down the significance of Smith's holiday in Portugal in 1977, as though this was a side issue. However, this was done to disguise the fact that Portugal was indeed to become the main argument made to connect Smith to KGB tradecraft. It was an innocent tourist map from this holiday that enabled the prosecution to call evidence from a US citizen, referred to as Mr E. Mr E was recruited by Oshchenko in December 1978, while he worked as a salesman in a Hi-Fi shop in Tottenham Court Road, London. Mr E was run by two KGB controllers: Viktor Oshchenko and Yuriy Gennadyevich Pokrovskiy (who was later expelled from Britain).
        Mr E was born in Yorkshire (England) and he was groomed by Oshchenko due to his background in the US Navy and his electronics expertise, he left as a Petty Officer (electronics technician (radar) III class). The KGB were also interested in Mr E's relatives: his father was a retired US Army 0-6, his mother an English nurse, and his father-in-law worked with one of the US House of Representatives subcommittees. The prosecution went to great lengths to conceal the identity of Mr E, and to present him as some kind of friend of the US and British Security Services, but in actual fact it was clear from the evidence that Mr E had accepted significant amounts of money from the KGB, equivalent to the monthly mortgage payments on his home, and he allowed himself to be groomed as an agent for about 15 months or more.
        While working for the KGB, Mr E attempted to procure some sensitive integrated circuits, which were proscribed to the Russians under COCOM. He also undertook KGB training methods and sought to improve his professional position, so he might gain access to information useful to the Russians. One of Mr E's training mission's was a trip to Lisbon (Portugal) on the weekend of 21/22 July 1979, to deliver a package to a KGB contact.
        A major part of the prosecution argument was that Mr E had behaved in the same way as Smith, but on careful study of the history of the 2 people, this is far from being an honest argument by the prosecution.

05-05-06             RE-POST Mike Smith Writes an Article for JAR2 (Exclusive)

        Mike Smith wrote with the following offering on his case. Please read it carefully along with the other files on his case. Only through pressure from the public can he be assured of the fair trail and the re-opening of his case that he is seeking. Like many hundreds of others who have been unfairly tried and punished on the flimsiest of grounds  by governments eager to persecute anyone for political gain, in particular with regard to Russia, his case deserves, in my opinion, to be heard and his vindication finally brought about.

The Jigsaw Puzzle of my Spy Trial  by Michael John Smith       

SNIPPET Those who remember my case will be aware that in 1992/93 I was portrayed as a major KGB spy, featuring on the front pages of several national newspapers. My name later appeared in the Mitrokhin Archive, as did Melita Norwood - the Granny Spy - but unlike her I have been largely ignored by those commentating on the history of espionage in the UK.
        In this article, I would like to familiarise JAR2 readers with some key elements of my case, and to raise questions about the official Prosecution account. I maintain that I did not receive a fair trial, and this is why I am still engaged in legal action to have my case re-opened.
