Why this petition matters

Started by Adam Knudsen

The Ku Klux Klan is a domestic terrorist organization founded shortly after the United States Civil War ended. It has used intimidation, violence, and murder to maintain white supremacy in government and social life.

RICO, Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act.

It is unlawful for anyone employed by or associated with any enterprise engaged in, or the activities of which affect, interstate or foreign commerce, to conduct or participate, directly or indirectly, in the conduct of such enterprise's affairs through a pattern of racketeering activity or collection of unlawful debt. 18 U.S.C.A. § 1962(c) (West 1984). The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization Act (RICO) was passed by Congress with the declared purpose of seeking to eradicate organized crime in the United States. Russello v. United States, 464 U.S. 16, 26-27, 104 S. Ct. 296, 302-303, 78 L. Ed. 2d 17 (1983); United States v. Turkette, 452 U.S. 576, 589, 101 S. Ct. 2524, 2532, 69 L. Ed. 2d 246 (1981). A violation of Section 1962(c), requires (1) conduct (2) of an enterprise (3) through a pattern (4) of racketeering activity. Sedima, S.P.R.L. v. Imrex Co., 473 U.S. 479, 496, 105 S. Ct. 3275, 3285, 87 L. Ed. 2d 346 (1985).

A more expansive view holds that in order to be found guilty of violating the RICO statute, the government must prove beyond a reasonable doubt: (1) that an enterprise existed; (2) that the enterprise affected interstate commerce; (3) that the defendant was associated with or employed by the enterprise; (4) that the defendant engaged in a pattern of racketeering activity; and (5) that the defendant conducted or participated in the conduct of the enterprise through that pattern of racketeering activity through the commission of at least two acts of racketeering activity as set forth in the indictment. United States v. Phillips, 664 F. 2d 971, 1011 (5th Cir. Unit B Dec. 1981), cert. denied, 457 U.S. 1136, 102 S. Ct. 1265, 73 L. Ed. 2d 1354 (1982).

An "enterprise" is defined as including any individual, partnership, corporation, association, or other legal entity, and any union or group of individuals associated in fact although not a legal entity. 18 U.S.C.A. §  1961(4) (West 1984). Many courts have noted that Congress mandated a liberal construction of the RICO statute in order to effectuate its remedial purposes by holding that the term "enterprise" has an expansive statutory definition. United States v. Delano, 825 F. Supp. 534, 538-39 (W.D.N.Y. 1993), aff'd in part, rev'd in part, 55 F. 3d 720 (2d Cir. 1995), cases cited therein.

"Pattern of racketeering activity" requires at least two acts of racketeering activity committed within ten years of each other. 18 U.S.C.A. § 1961(5) (West 1984). Congress intended a fairly flexible concept of a pattern in mind. H.J., Inc. v. Northwestern Bell Tel. Co., 492 U.S. 229, 239, 109 S. Ct. 2893, 2900, 106 L. Ed. 2d 195 (1989). The government must show that the racketeering predicates are related, and that they amount to or pose a threat of continued criminal activity. Id.Racketeering predicates are related if they have the same or similar purposes, results, participants, victims, or methods of commission, or otherwise are interrelated by distinguishing characteristics and are not isolated events. Id. at 240, 109 S. Ct. at 2901; Ticor Title Ins. Co. v. Florida, 937 F. 2d 447, 450 (9th Cir. 1991). Furthermore, the degree in which these factors establish a pattern may depend on the degree of proximity, or any similarities in goals or methodology, or the number of repetitions. United States v. Indelicato, 865 F. 2d 1370, 1382 (2d Cir.), cert. denied, 493 U.S. 811, 110 S. Ct. 56, 107 L. Ed. 2d 24 (1989).

Continuity refers either to a closed period of repeated conduct, or to past conduct that by its nature projects into the future with a threat of repetition. H.J., Inc., 492 U.S. at 241-42, 109 S. Ct. at 2902. A party alleging a RICO violation may demonstrate continuity over a closed period by proving a series of related predicates extending over a substantial period of time. Id. Predicate acts extending over a few weeks or months and threatening no future criminal conduct do not satisfy this requirement as Congress was concerned with RICO in long-term criminal conduct. Id.

As to the continuity requirement, the government may show that the racketeering acts found to have been committed pose a threat of continued racketeering activity by proving: (1) that the acts are part of a long-term association that exists for criminal purposes, or (2) that they are a regular way of conducting the defendant's ongoing legitimate business, or (3) that they are a regular way of conducting or participating in an ongoing and legitimate enterprise. Id.

When a RICO action is brought before continuity can be established, then liability depends on whether the threat of continuity is demonstrated. Id. However, Judge Scalia wrote in his concurring opinion that it would be absurd to say that "at least a few months of racketeering activity. . .is generally for free, as far as RICO is concerned." Id. at 254, 109 S. Ct. at 2908. Therefore, if the predicate acts involve a distinct threat of long-term racketeering activity, either implicit or explicit, a RICO pattern is established. Id. at 242, 109 S. Ct. at 2902.

The RICO statute expressly states that it is unlawful for any person to conspire to violate any of the subsections of 18 U.S.C.A. § 1962. The government need not prove that the defendant agreed with every other conspirator, knew all of the other conspirators, or had full knowledge of all the details of the conspiracy. Delano, 825 F. Supp. at 542. All that must be shown is: (1) that the defendant agreed to commit the substantive racketeering offense through agreeing to participate in two racketeering acts; (2) that he knew the general status of the conspiracy; and (3) that he knew the conspiracy extended beyond his individual role. United States v. Rastelli, 870 F. 2d 822, 828 (2d Cir.), cert. denied, 493 U.S. 982, 110 S. Ct. 515, 107 L. Ed. 2d 516 (1989).

Ku Klux Klan infiltrated American International Group Service Employees International Inc has exemplified Crimes Against Humanity in White Supremacy by betraying Oaths to God on The Soldiers Creed in the largest terrorist attack since 9/11, The Camp Speicher Massacre. The 1700 were Comrades of The United States of America verified in Kellogg Brown & Root (KBR) & American International Group’s (AIG) billing. The Soldiers Creed that was intertwined into the contract agreement states: “I WILL NEVER LEAVE A FALLEN COMRADE” & there are legal & moral obligations to free all U.S. Comrades Families, Christians, & Yazidis held as sex slaves by ISIS. KBR & AIG failed to deliver defenses and took the money & ran. Everyone on the project was brutally murdered with their families enslaved.

Ladies & Gentlemen of The United States, Since when does The U.S. run from I.S.? If The United States of America & The United Kingdom were both in Iraq in 2014, why have Amal Clooney & Nadia Murad bravely done more to hold The Islamic State Accountable for The Massacre of Comrades & The Genocide of The Yazidis than both Governments combined? American International Group & the contract companies whom they insure have demonstrated continuity by running the same plays of contract fraud, waste, & abuse in Afghanistan that resulted in Mission Failure. The Late & Great Pat Tillman forewarned of imperial folly, why was The U.K.’s Peter Hancock CEO of American International Group with oversight of U.S. Tax Payer Dollars? https://www.change.org/p/ban-combat-zone-profiteering

If we RICO The KKK, their enterprise of ill gotten gains that is continuously used to condone slavery, will be exposed in American International Group. KBR & AIG left my Fire Crews & I for dead, The Iraq Military got us out as the bases were overran, not The Department of State or The Department of Defense. The purpose of The Camp Speicher Massacre Whistleblower Case Qui Tam 4:18-cv-04230-SLD-JEH is to return U.S. Tax Payer funds that will be used to Honor Oaths, Accomplish Search & Rescue, Free The Slaves, & Finish The Mission.

The Federal Bureau of Investigations in publicly requested to Investigate: American International Group Complex Claim Director Chad Clemens, AIG Legal Representation Mick Thomas & his Firm of Thomas-Quinn Law, Defense Base Act Legal Representative Thomas Barnes & his Firm of Barnes Law, Qui Tam Representative Joel Androphy & his Firm of Berg & Androphy, Kitsap County District Attorney Chad Enright for Whistleblower Retaliation, Obstruction of Justice, Condoning War Crimes, & Precluding U.S. Comrades Families as Slaves to ISIS. My day in court was unconstitutionally remanded March 9th 2020 because I submitted The Camp Speicher Massacre Whistleblower Case Qui Tam 4:18-cv-04230-SLD-JEH as evidence into open Defense Base Act cases (U.S. Department of Labor OWCP 14-300457 & 14-305427) as Kellogg Brown & Root’s fraud against The United States Armed Forces is what caused injuries & senseless life loss. American International Group Service Employees International Inc Complex Claim Director Susan Banda, 1-214-758-3323, is respectfully requested to set trial for The Camp Speicher Massacre & The Yazidi Genocide. It is undeniably in the best interest of The United States of America to hold ISIS Accountable.

American International Group, the same enterprise that accumulated wealth insuring slaves as property in NYC during The Civil War, disgraced The United States Armed Forces by betraying Oaths to God on The Soldiers Creed, ran from the fight, & preclude U.S. Comrades Families to slavery. Rest in Peace to The 1700 & The American Firefighters who stood against ISIS.

Thank you for your time & consideration.
