America’s secret wealth exchanges: “The Economic Rape of America” is underway

To depict what can fairly be characterized as “The Economic Rape of America,” Har Justice has released a documentary entitled America’s Secret Wealth Exchanges that provides an important look at the greed, corruption and unseemly transfers of America’s wealth occurring through probate courts and frivolous civil litigation.

First it should be understood that probate courts oversee and/or administer actions related to wills, trusts, guardianships and even powers of attorney.
The Har Justice project is described as follows:
This documentary is the story of a woman who lost her husband then was plunged into the ugly world of greed, corruption, and legal abuse via unnecessary and predatory litigation. The widow was intentionally kept from mitigating damages to the Estate due to the insider activities between lawyers, and an asset management company. The widow was denied economic and civil rights and half of the assets of the estate were drained from her husband’s estate. This is known as a public, private, partnership scheme. The short film exposes the billions of dollars that are wasted each year and reveals what has been referred to as “The Dead Man’s Scam” and “The Tomb Raider’s Club” and involves attorneys, banks, and YOUR property! Legal fees for probate, divorce, and frivolous litigation add up to $315.5 billion per year.
There are cameos by Professor and Rabbi, Kris McDaniel-Miccio, Athena Roe, Shaun T. Lally, Rosemary Lytle, President of the NAACP, Maureen Grier, Carolyn Cathey, and video clips courtesy of Rod Fisher and Haimo Law. Many people falsely believe that having a Will protects your home and assets. Anyone can die suddenly and this is not an age related topic. While people do not want to think about death, everyone will die. The probate system is predatory and survives largely because we as a society have silly beliefs about death and estate planning. Amy Weinhouse, Howard Hughes, Sonny Bono are well-known figures who died without Wills.
Today, America’s legal system is commonly used as an abusive bludgeon that forces millions of families to ask for government assistance. This timely documentary unravels the little known facts and statistics to viewers and will shock most. The short documentary reveals the often ignored topic of Estate administration and explains why America must wake up and start “watch dogging” the legal system before there is even more dire consequences to America’s families and future.
This documentary is an exciting project offering important insight regarding the atrocities being perpetrated by the legal industry via probate courts. Assets are being hijacked, civil liberties are being trampled. This issue is impacting people at all economic levels and from all walks of life.
Anyone who thinks it couldn’t happen to them falls into one single category – that of being a fool. Harsh as that sounds, it’s the truth. Economic and emotional devastation is the best way to describe the trail of targets these acts create.
Athena Roe and the Har Justice team have created an important work that aptly communicates the dangers facing a largely unsuspecting public.
Two dangerous mindsets cause people to become more vulnerable. First, people think they don’t have enough money to be a target. Second, they think that “proper estate planning” will protect them.
Wealth is relative – there’s always someone with more, someone with less and any estate can be targeted. An Involuntary Redistribution of Assets can happen to anyone. Estates of modest values have significant appeal – as much as higher dollar estates – as assets can be enough to go after, but not so much that legitimate heirs or beneficiaries can cost effectively defend their inheritance rights in court.
Legal consumers should understand that “proper estate planning” does not provide the security espoused in legal industry product sales pitches, but it is necessary.  It should be done, however, with the knowledge that wills, trusts, guardianships and even powers of attorney are not fail safe mechanisms for protecting assets. In fact, today’s legal environment is a breeding ground for often using these instruments in ways contrary to their intended purposes.
While property rights of the dead, the disabled and/or the incapacitated are frequent targets, guardianships also pose special threats to civil liberties.
Though all these abuses are often equated with the elderly and incapacitated, make no mistake that people of all ages as well as wealth levels are also at risk.
With no magic pill, silver bullet or cure to avoid, even mitigate becoming a target, the public should at least be aware of the disturbing realities we that exist.
