R.I. attorney general gets order blocking new 38 Studios law
— At the request of Attorney General Peter F. Kilmartin, a Superior Court judge on Friday issued a temporary restraining order blocking release of documents from the 38 Studios investigation, even if Gov. Gina M. Raimondo signs legislation into law requiring their release. “The purpose of the [restraining order] is to get a legal determination of what is required and what is prohibited from disclosure from the bill once it is signed,” said Kilmartin.
No one was charged in the state police investigation into the failed video-gaming business headed by former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling, which left Rhode Island taxpayers on the hook for millions of dollars in bond guarantees.
Kilmartin has opposed releasing the documents because he says it could compromise the secrecy of grand jury investigations.
Superior Court Judge Robert Krause issued the order.
Attorney George E. Babcock was an outspoken Rhode Island lawyer who stood up to the ‘too big to fail’ banks by filing hundreds of cases into the Federal Court system on behalf of homeowners in RI & MA. In addition, he was a regularly featured guest on the Buddy Cianci talk show, with his own advocacy radio show called “The Law Dogs”, and was also named as one of “12 Who Made a Difference in RI in 2012”.
George Babcock: 12 Who Made a Difference in RI in 2012
However, unlike others, when George tragically died there was no mention of his life accomplishments, nor was his ‘sudden’ death reported in the press, but he did not leave in total silence without speaking out one last time in his message that he posted online….
Revenge campaigns can be called many names, from “Covert Harassment“, “Targeted Individuals” (TIs), “Organized Bullying/Stalking”, “Gang Stalking”, “State-Sponsored Terrorism”, or what our President and others refer to as “The Deep State”, whatever one calls it – one thing’s for sure, it can completely destroy a person’s life leaving no evidence to incriminate the perpetrators while every aspect of life is potentially under attack, from employment and relationships to health and survival, with the intention to destroy the targeted individual psychologically, socially and financially.
“There are many websites now devoted to the topic of Organized Stalking. This phenomenon is not yet recognized by the mainstream media, the legal community, or mental health professionals. Some small talk shows such as The grassy Knoll, The Power Hour, The Investigative Journal, & a few others, have covered this topic in detail. Some true investigative reporters are subjected to this type of harassment, ridicule, or job loss (or death) when they try to expose similar phenomenon. Some of them are afraid of becoming targets. Many targets & reputable authors have concluded that this is state-sponsored terrorism“. – The Hidden Evil: What It Is
Most targets seem to be whistle-blowers, political activists and outspoken, or as George put it – “the voice of change”. However, it is suspected that all you have to do is be at the wrong place at the wrong time, or piss off the wrong person to be on the list, which is why Targeted Individuals find little to no help out of fear from those who could help becoming targets themselves. Therefore, these taboo-truths need to be exposed before any more lives are lost.
Will the President maintain this position – if it is found HE leaked classified information?
Whistle-blower who leaked information set free yesterday from prison… against Donald Trump’s wishes!
Donald Trump vehemently opposed the release yesterday of Pvt. Manning, the 29 year old former US army intelligence analyst & whistle-blower incarcerated seven years ago, serving a 35 year prison term under the largest court martial sentence imposed for passing on ‘classified information’.
The crime was leaking documents to WikiLeaks with the intent to expose wrongdoing (which they did), of the US military’s actions against unarmed civilians & children in Iraq and Afghanistan.
What the President fails to acknowledge is that it takes great courage to provide evidence of immoral crimes & cover-ups of one’s own comrades.
In the Corporate world of little moral high-ground, where the rules are bought by dollars with a wink and a nod, it is understandable his blindness in this regard.
This is not political – just factual:
* Bradley Manning: Jailed for Exposing War Crimes, not Committing Them
* The Kill Team: How U.S. Soldiers in Afghanistan Murdered Innocent Civilians Plus: An exclusive look at the war crime images the Pentagon tried to censor
* Massacre Caught on Tape: US Military Confirms Authenticity of Their Own Chilling Video Showing Killing of Journalists
* Collateral Murder
In this particular case, some of the people killed were journalists that were simply doing their jobs: putting their lives at risk in order to report on war. Iraq is a very dangerous place for journalists: from 2003- 2009, 139 journalists were killed while doing their work.
* Is Bradley Manning a hero?
* Iraq War documents leak
Trump set the standard who he considers a TRAITOR… SO, “What’s Good for the Private – is Good for the President”
“DEAL WITH IT”

“The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than the democratic state itself. That in its essence is fascism: ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or any controlling private power.” – F.D. Roosevelt
There is an air of fascism about this country, a sense that the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, so long embraced by the American people, are either on their way out, or already dead.
We have witnessed assaults on our Constitution WE can no longer allow to happen while our Republic and form of government hangs in the balance.
The clock is ticking for the transfer of power within moments when Donald John Trump will take the Oath of Office as 45th President by swearing to “Preserve, Protect and Defend” the Constitution of the United States of America against all enemies foreign and domestic.
As we welcome our new President, we must keep in mind when our Founding Fathers started this country, they created the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution with humility and selflessness because they knew that the Monarch in England only ruled his people from the top down. Their purpose was to create a system that prevents the rise of a tyrannical power in the United States of America.
However, both major American political parties, the Democrats and the Republicans, have been infected with the viruses of bribery and treason, and it is the people’s job to cleanse our political system of these plagues by ‘refusing to cooperate’ when needed.
Therefore, today is not about one man becoming President of our great Nation. It is about US – every Citizen – that he has been chosen to represent.
May God protect and guide him in this responsibility ~ as WE THE PEOPLE “Stand Ready” to Preserve Our Republic for future generations.
HON. LUCIUS FAYETTE CLARK GARVIN, M. D. — Twice elected Governor of the State of Rhode Island, thirteen times elected to the General Assembly as representative, and three times as State Senator, such is the record to date of Dr. Lucius Fayette Clark Garvin. Although born in the State of Tennessee, he is of New England family, his father, a college professor, being in the South temporarily filling a chair in the East Tennessee University.
Dr. Garvin is a son of James and Sarah Ann (Gunn) Garvin, his father born in Bethel, Ct., in 1809, a graduate of Amherst College in 1831, died in Knoxville, Tenn., June 25, 1846. His wife, Sarah Ann (Gunn) Garvin, born in Pittsfield, Mass, in 1812, was the daughter of a physician. She died June 27, 1890.
Lucius F. C. Garvin was born in Knoxville, Tenn., November 13, 1841, his father, an educator of note, being then a professor in East Tennessee University. Soon after the death of her husband Mrs. Garvin came from Eastern Tennessee to Sunderland, Mass., remaining for a brief time, the journey then taking three weeks to accomplish by wagon, boat and train. Later Mrs. Garvin and her son, Lucius F. C., located in Greensboro, N. C., where he attended private school in Greensboro. He completed his college preparation at New Gordon, now Guilford College, near Greensboro, and in 1858, at the age of sixteen, entered Amherst College. He was graduated in 1862, a short time prior to attaining his twenty-first year, and during his last college year taught a winter school at Sunderland, Mass. After graduation he taught a full school term at Ware, Mass. He served in 1862 and 1863 as a private in Company E, Fifty-first Regiment, Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry, commanded by Colonel A. B. R. Sprague, of Worcester, and saw service under General Foster, mainly in Eastern North Carolina, very near the locality in which he had formerly lived.
After the war Dr. Garvin returned to Massachusetts, and taught a select school at Leverett, and at the same time privately studied medicine. Early in the year 1864 he came to Pawtucket, as a student of medicine under Dr. Sylvanus Clapp, and from there entered Harvard Medical College, whence he was graduated M. D. with the class of 1867. During the last year in medical college he was an interne at Boston City Hospital, ten months in the surgical and two months in the medical departments. After graduation he at once began practice in Pawtucket, starting with a debt of $300, which he had borrowed to enable him to complete his last year at medical school. He did not long remain in Pawtucket, but soon moved to Lonsdale, R. I., remaining in his first location nine years, until 1876, then moving to his present location in Lonsdale, which he built. There he has rounded out more than a half century of medical practice, 1867 – 1918, nearly the entire fifty-one years having been spent in Lonsdale. He is a member of the Providence and Rhode Island State Medical societies, is a physician of skill and devotion, deeply-beloved by a large clientele and highly esteemed.
A Democrat in politics, Dr. Garvin soon forged to the front as a leader of his party in his town, and finally became a State leader of the Democracy. His first political office was town moderator, which office he held in Cumberland in 1881. In 1883 he was elected to the lower body of the Legislature, and has served under thirteen reelections and three times has been elected State Senator. He was the Democratic candidate for Congress from the Second Rhode Island district, in 1894, 1896, 1898, 1900 and 1906, defeated each time, but always polling a large vote in excess of the normal Democratic number. He was elected governor of Rhode Island in November, 1902, reelected in 1903, 1904, 1905 , each time the standard bearer of the Democracy advocating proportional representation and the single tax also the Constitutional initiative as a means to those ends. He is a member of the religious society of Bell Street Chapel, member of Ballou Post, Grand Army of the Republic, of Central Falls, his fraternity, Delta Kappa Epsilon, Amherst Chapter.
Dr. Garvin married (first), December 23, 1869, Lucy Waterman Southmayd, of Middletown, Conn., who died January 20, 1892. They were the parents of three daughters: Ethel, Norma, and Florence. He married (second), April 2, 1907, Sarah Emma Tomlinson, of Lonsdale, R. I. They are the parents of two sons: Lucius, born February 2, 1908; and Sumner, August 6, 1909. The family home is at No. 572 Broad street, Lonsdale.
Florence Garvin (February 27, 1876—July 10, 1968) was a women’s rights activist, the daughter of former Rhode Island Governor Lucius F. C. Garvin, the author of several books including Land Rent, Arden Charm and Americanism and a candidate for United States Vice President in the 1932 and 1936 presidential elections. She was a member of the National American Woman Suffrage Association, the head of the Rhode Island College Equal Suffrage League and Third Vice-President of the Women’s National Single Tax League, a group supporting the ideas of Henry George. In 1932 she was the running mate of presidential candidate John Zahnd of the National Party, also known as the Independent Party; Zahnd has been called “one of the more intriguing fringe candidates in American history.” She was the third woman to have run for vice-president in the United States.
What the people voted for was a new version of a new President with a vision to make the changes necessary for the time we live in, because there was never a valid, logical argument for Hillary Clinton as someone who wants to address the problems we face and find viable solutions. She was a candidate of excuses! Our country has become a country of excuses, from congress to the I.R.S. and the F.B.I., along with every alphabet agency in between, including our Judiciary – from the Supreme Court down, we have witnessed it first hand. So the choice was not for the person, but for the message… we want a country of solutions – not excuses. And that is why, the cold hard truth is – even Democrats voted Trump for President.
Whether he will live up to the people’s expectations, only time will tell. The job is immense, our adversaries are cunning. So, regardless of the party banner, we must unite and keep our eyes on the real prize, “Restoring the Constitution and the ‘Republic’ for which it stands”, so all our people can thrive in peace and security.
We have a government at war against the very foundation upon which it was created. In order to hide the magnitude of its descent, it redefines words and changes their meanings, and what we once knew to be right, we are told it wrong. Our American culture has turned upon itself, because when you can’t trust your government, it fosters mistrust among ourselves, instead of rising up against it with one united voice.
Our voices should not be silenced by whoever is chosen President, and so, if this campaign has taught us nothing else, “WE” must take part in our own governance, “WE” must not be afraid to speak the truth. “WE” must give voice to what must be spoken. “WE” must sound the alarms that must be sounded. “WE” must address what must be addressed if “WE” are to save our Republic.
If this message is not politically correct, so be it. It is not political. The truth is something we must stop apologizing for if “WE ALL” want honor restored to the future course of our nation.
We will not make a better world if we can’t engage with those we disagree with. The choice is ours to come together, or remain divided.
“The full deposition transcripts and exhibits are not part of the court record in this case.”
According to the Court’s own statement, the People were not served full disclosure – but thrown crumbs from only half a loaf…. and the Press didn’t mention any of this!
One year later, what Rhode Island’s media still has NOT reported, is that on September 24, 2015, when the Rhode Island Superior Court released the thousands of documents and deposition transcription excerpts that were previously sealed, the court also issued the above “disclaimer” pertaining to the limited nature of the documents that were released to the public. Had this important disclaimer been explained – that the lawyers in the case chose what would be disclosed – it would have come as no surprise later why criminal evidence of wrongdoing was not exposed.

THIS DEAL WAS DONE BEFORE IT HAD BEGUN
Fed Up in RI purposely delayed in supplying our analysis in response to R.I. law enforcement’s finding of no criminal charges in the 38 Studios probe, because in understanding how R.I. works, we believe as important as the decision is, it is as important to observe the actions of others following such an event. For that reason, Fed Up in RI is compelled (once again) to reveal ‘THE OBVIOUS’, that is not being brought to the people’s attention…
OF COURSE NO CRIMINAL CHARGES WERE FOUND IN THE 38 STUDIOS INVESTIGATION – BECAUSE, ACCORDING TO THE RHODE ISLAND STATE POLICE AND RHODE ISLAND ATTORNEY GENERAL… “NO CRIMINAL CHARGES WERE OFFERED FOR GRAND JURY CONSIDERATION”. So, how can a legitimate finding of no criminal charges be rendered when the Grand Jury was not allowed to even consider the question of criminality? To add insult to injury, at the conclusion of this charade, or better put, ‘conspiracy to obstruct justice’, we find it outrageous that Attorney General Peter Kilmartin marginalizes the people’s concerns by calling them all “CYNICS”! We remind the Attorney General, the people are not cynics — they are hardworking taxpaying citizens who have been coerced into paying 38 Studio bondholders millions! Therefore, Fed Up in RI calls FOUL!
We bring your attention to what is stated in the document entitled; “Results of the Criminal Investigation of 38 Studios, LLC Issued by the RI State Police and the RI Office of Attorney General”.
Although the ACLU, and other groups reference this document regarding the privacy of the Grand Jury, in rightly calling for the release of records, Fed Up in RI is much more troubled by the statements made that go to the heart of the investigation. Whereas, ‘this document outlines the scope of the investigation by the Rhode Island State Police and Rhode Island Attorney General of (“38 Studios”), as well as the results of their investigation.’ At the outset, it is important to stress that the sole focus of this investigation was to determine if there was sufficient probable cause to charge any individual (public or private) with a criminal violation of the Rhode Island General Laws. What demanded our attention, as quoted – is their “investigation was so narrow and specific in focus that “NO CRIMINAL CHARGES WERE OFFERED FOR GRAND JURY CONSIDERATION”. [emphasis added]
Gina Raimondo has spent more time as governor being Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager – using the ‘States’ Office of the Governor as Hillary Clinton’s Campaign Headquarters!
AFTER Hillary received the Democratic nomination for President at the National Convention – NOW, Governor Raimondo takes the position…. “IT WOULD NEVER BE APPROPRIATE FOR A STATE AGENCY TO MAKE A POLITICAL STATEMENT.” Because we wouldn’t want anyone to think that there is any political bias in Rhode Island’s state government!
So, the only question left…. Is Rhode Island’s Governor a two-faced Hypocrite or just Bat-shit Crazy? If it’s the first – she has a promising political future… if the later – she may not be qualified to hold the position of Chief Executive of Rhode Island’s state government any longer.
We know your focus has only been on the ‘National’ level, so we understand your confusion.
However, Rhode Islanders may benefit more if you use some of our PR dollars slated for tourism – for a therapist, because since you’ve been in public office as Treasurer, and now as Governor… You’ve Been Nothing But A Crazy-Maker!
So, get some help girl, because if you don’t — the people may need to Recall you due to the ‘Malignant Hypocrisy’ you suffer from.Was Gina’s “POLITICAL” message written on the Governor’s Letterhead above ‘posted accidentally when she thought she was logged into her personal account’, because “it was not her intent” to promote Hillary for President these past six months – starting in February??However, THIS Tweet from The Rhode Island Department of Health was taken down right after it was posted because Raimondo will not tolerate the political connotation of the word “INSPIRED” under her ‘Do as I SAY – not as I DO’ hypocritical perverted mindset. Much like Hillary – Gina feels the rules only apply to others.
Is Gina’s latest brain-fart her new campaign to re-brand Rhode Island from being the most corrupt – to being the most NUTS?
Because…. “IT’S WORKING”!
