Ted to Dogbert: Why was I disciplined?
Dogbert: For doing your job.
The Boss: (thinking to himself) when will he learn about the Federal Reserve.
Me, Guinea Pig of the United States government through the Federal Reserve from 2000-present:
It appears that my disciplinary actions are to punish me for Federal Reserve infractions of proper government conduct. This responsibility falls on the Chairman. I am being personally targeted for both publicly critiquing the policies of the Fed and to take the fall for the Fed’s improper conduct as a public proxy.
I have filed civil tort damages against the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and reported to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for criminal misuse of institutional power to intrude into my life. I have also sought help from the United States Senate and The Obama White House per the rules seeking relief from a federal agency in fall 2009.
The case involves chronic abuse of institutional power to misrepresent my identity and vindictive behavior after I had complained about loss of work related data pertaining to my performance tasks as a non-economist Research Systems Analyst (RSA) in the Fiscal Analysis Section of the Division of Research and Statistics of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System for the performance year 2009-2010 followed by loss of personal data (one of which I recovered from The Washington Post’s editorial room because I had submitted it for publication as an Op-Ed article as soon as I had completed writing it. None of my Op-Ed articles submitted to any major newspapers as an additional source of income for me were published despite receiving favorable popular reviews. Federal Reserve’s disciplinary actions, unrelated to any unethical conduct on my part, began as soon as I went public with these articles through my own blog in December 2009, a year after I incorporated my consulting firms in October 2008 and sought approval from the institution’s legal department for ethics clearance to convert my regular government employment to a contractual consulting relationship with the Federal Reserve. The Federal Reserve did not say that my non-job related activity was unethical but asked that I choose between Fed employment as a non-economist RSA or building my consulting firm.).
Also, I had notified the Fed in fall 2008 that I was seeking work elsewhere, particularly in the new Obama administration as a non-partisan adviser in the Chief of Staff’s office, or the National Economic Council, or the National Security Council. I retracted my intent a year later because the non-standard response from the White House transition team asking me to wait to be considered for appointment had not yielded any results. I informed my Section Chief of the status of my external job applications during my annual performance review and notified that I will leave the Fed as soon as a new opportunity materializes.
During the performance period 2008-2009 when I had volunteered to be considered for The White House positions I submitted three technical papers in economics, one on health care reform and two on financial regulatory reform to the Finance and Economics Discussion Series (FEDS) of the Federal Reserve. All of these were turned down for publication by FEDS but encouraged by the journals of the American Economic Association (AEA). In this same period I volunteered and served in grassroots leadership positions in Maryland’s Congressional District 8 and subsequently as State Leader for the Pickens Plan and informed the grassroots of my intent to work in The White House as a policy adviser.
I was asked by the Federal Reserve to work remotely from home beginning 05/20/2010 after full security privileges to access confidential forecast data were restored for using Board-provided telecommuting equipment. I could not work from home because I neither had money nor a home during that period. I was evicted from my home with no belongings by my divorce-related court order (Case # 86316-FL, Montgomery County Circuit Court, Rockville, Maryland. The voice recording and print transcripts of this case will reveal Secret Service intervention. My petitions as plaintiff to protect me from domestic violence because of the above evidence were denied thrice before my spouse filed Case #86316-FL as plaintiff.).
I resigned effective 06/16/2010 from the Federal Reserve under pressure despite strong performance reviews and mistakes made by the Federal Reserve’s Research and Statistics Division Director David Stockton’s casual and shoddy approach to disciplinary actions targeting a career employee. The Board-provided equipment was returned per my instructions. The Federal Reserve returned all my personal material and confirmed by email that it deleted my personal folder per my instructions from the Fed’s unmanaged scratch server space.
A labor attorney, upon reviewing my case, was of the opinion that I had blown a whistle. Since, I submitted my case for consideration to the National Whistleblower Lawyer’s Association. However, the radio surveillance (roaming and remote neural monitoring – continuous communication at all times of day and night to provoke disapproving social and public behavior) which began in 2008 while I was in my office at the Federal Reserve is now a 24-hour affair in spite of me having resigned from the Fed which I document to the FBI.
Communicated as below by email to Ms. Allison DeChoso of the Federal Reserve on 04/22/2010:
The Federal Reserve is liable for its conduct towards me under the following civil law procedures:
Violation of constitutional rights (Amendments 1, 4, 5 and potentially 6)
The Federal Reserve is liable for its conduct towards me under the following criminal law procedures:
Federal government use of citizens as human guinea pigs
Abuses of power by government agencies
Dirty tricks: rumors, telephone sleaze and leaks, knowing full well to cause personal harm to my person and reputation.
White Collar Crime
Cellular Phone Fraud
Since, Senator Barbara Mikulski of Maryland has responded to me about the leaks of my personal material and a veiled death threat letter generated through the pension plan that I received in response to my request for pension plan withdrawals for my day-to-day sustenance. Her inquiries were handled by the Federal Reserve nonchalantly through lower level employees in the Office of the Chairman asking her and me to take the Federal Reserve’s word at face value about the fraudulently generated pension letter that it was properly generated upon my request and that I misunderstood the letter when there is no evidence to back the Fed’s claim. The central bank had no comments on the leaks of my personal material.
The Federal Reserve has since released all my pension funds to me. The senator has suggested that I seek legal counsel (which I cannot afford) and contact the Maryland Attorney General’s office in Case # 86316-FL.
I responded to her and Senator Richard Shelby of the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs which oversees the Federal Reserve explaining why Case # 86316-FL is outside the Montgomery County Circuit Court’s jurisdiction as indicated to me by the Maryland Judicial Disabilities Commission in Annapolis whose help I sought to review the judgments in my cases in the Montgomery County Circuit Court in Rockville, Maryland. Why did Judge Ronald Rubin of Montgomery County Circuit Court in Rockville, MD pass judgment in case # 86316-FL if the case is outside the jurisdiction according to the Maryland Judicial Disabilities Commission?
I never physically or verbally abused my spouse or any member of family. When the domestic violence petition against me was granted to my spouse removing me to a mental health institution involuntarily at my expense and permanently and involuntarily evicting me from the marital home, I was not present in the court. Her version of the case was not corroborated.
My mental health, with no history of either mental or physical health issues, has since been given a clean bill of health by psychiatrists and physicians in July 2010 without which I would not have been able to see my children during visitation times or work in my new job after I left the Federal Reserve from which salary I had paid child support in a non-guidelines case to a very high income earning spouse who has been granted full legal and physical custody of the children after the circumstances were stacked against me per force, ignoring my serving to the opposing counsel on 05/16/2010, before I retained counsel, of my intent to settle the divorce amicably through alimony payments from my spouse until I resolved the case against the Federal Reserve and joint legal and physical custody of both my children. Had that occurred I would not have had to resign from the Federal Reserve.
My legal exception, which I was suggested to file by the Master, that my circumstances of divorce and, therefore, the Judgment of Absolute Divorce was unfair under Maryland Law was denied after 06/30/2011 because I had asked my legal counsel to no longer represent me.
I asked the court, therefore, as the plaintiff in Case # 85772-FL that the entire divorce case be dropped with the intent of me and my spouse re-petitioning for divorce without legal help. I had voluntarily separated from her under pressure through her from the Federal Reserve and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) on 02/24/2010 because of the above detailed account.
My petition to drop the divorce case, however, cannot reverse the personal injury caused to me, my marriage of 18-1/2 years and my family which includes two minor children and elderly parents on both sides.
The Federal Reserve, compounding its mistakes in my case, approved me for District of Columbia unemployment insurance after April 2011, which I had pointed out to the Fed, leaving open the possibility of a connection between my layoff from a small government contracting firm in Maryland and itself. My date of layoff was coincidentally the same as the date of announcement of the resignation of Fed’s Administrative Governor Kevin Warsh, who was involved in my situation at the Fed, from the Fed Board.
I am awaiting a response from the Federal Reserve to settle my civil tort claims within 6 months of filing them per the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) waiver of the government’s sovereign immunity from litigation.
