Attorneys Mark Vovos and Carl Oreskovich convinced Superior Court Judge James Triplet to order the return of thousands of dollars of cash and property that was seized from two owners of massage parlors that were raided last summer as part of Operation Red Light. While their clients were initially taken into custody for allegedly promoting prostitution and money laundering, prosecutors have not filed any formal charges. “The government doesn’t have the right to sit on it … and deny my client her right to the Fourth Amendment protection to be free of illegal search and seizure,” Oreskovich said. “We are asking the court to release the property seized on July 10.”Good. The whole "operation" was corrupt, and it looks like the case will now start to fall apart. What happened in July was brazenly obvious. Northern Quest Casino, run by the Kalispel Tribe, ordered state, federal and local "law" enforcement to suppress its competitors in the whore trade. These competitors, mainly owned by old Korean ladies, had been running openly for decades. Everyone knew what those spas were doing. During all those years nobody found them "illegal enough" to raid. Fact: The "American" economy now consists solely of casinos, run by three main mafias. At the national level all power and money belongs to the Jew Casino on Wall Street. At the state and local level the mafias are either Italian or Indian. None of the three main mafias will tolerate competition from small businesses.
Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
