Former Federal Circuit Chief Judge says the U.S. patent system has collapsed from globalist corruption
U.S. patent activity has dropped to 10th in the world
by Anonymous Patriots – Aim4Truth.org
October 20, 2017—Yesterday, on Oct. 19, 2017, Former Federal Circuit Chief Judge Paul Michel (2004-2010) issued an impassioned plea for a return to fidelity to the Constitution to a room full of mostly patent lawyers in Washington, D.C. at the 120th anniversary of the American Intellectual Property Law Association (AIPLA).
The Federal Circuit is headquartered adjacent to the White House on Lafayette Square. This special appeals court hears all appeals of patent cases that start in federal district courts.
U.S. patent system “seriously hobbled” by Obama’s AIA
Remarkably, Judge Michel revealed that the America Invents Act (AIA), passed on September 16, 2011, has “seriously hobbled” America’s patent system. He said America now ranks 10th alongside Hungary in patent output. Hungary has a smaller population than Ohio.
Lawyers and propagandists create “narratives,”
Inventors create real wealth (or used to)
The dialog about patents and intellectual property rights is the almost exclusively controlled by lawyers.
Judge Michel rightly said that the patent system has become the domain of propagandists, “narrative” builders and spin artists, and not experts.
For example, we hear these patent propagandists scream “God save us from patent trolls!” But, did anyone ever ask where the term “patent troll” came from? It is the invention of IBM, James P. Chandler, III and David J. Kappos.
IBM is the largest patent holder on the planet. Chandler and Kappos, both advisors to Bill Clinton, George Bush and Barack Obama, fabricated the term to force legal targets to license rather than litigate against IBM’s “junk patents.” IBM has unlimited rogue C.I.A. funds available to them to beat down their targets.
While inventors have their heads down quietly inventing and creating real new wealth opportunities, lawyers, judges and bankers at $1,000 per hour mostly sit around shifting the deck chairs on the Titanic.
Leader v. Facebook corruption case study
A case study in this “anti-patentee” corruption as Judge Michel calls it is the patent infringement case of Columbus innovator Leader Technologies, Inc. against Facebook that started in November 2008.
Despite the fact that Leader proved on 11 of 11 counts that Facebook is infringing its patent, the lawyers and judges fabricated a ruling that protected Facebook anyway. They dredged up a single 1896 criminal case where a jury convicted a murderer without any evidence–on suspicion only.
Never mind that this 1896 criminal case had never been cited in a civil patent case in history!
Never mind that the Federal Circuit didn’t even support its own evidence precedents for the fabricated claim.
Never mind that all the judges in the case held volumes of Facebook financial interests, including Chief Justice John Roberts, yet did not recuse themselves.
Never mind that Facebook’s appeal attorney Thomas G. Hungar of Gibson Dunn LLP is a disciple of Chief Justice John Roberts.
Never mind that Mark Zuckerberg stonewalled for a year against providing his 2003-2004 computers—and then he claimed he lost them right before trial.
Never mind that 28 Mark Zuckerberg computing devices and Harvard emails magically appeared in another case two days after the Federal Circuit ruled in Facebook’s favor in the appeal.
Never mind that the stonewalled Zuckerberg 2003-2004 computers were in the custody of Facebook appeal attorney Gibson Dunn LLP the entire time.
Never mind that trial judge, Leonard P. Stark, was nominated to the bench by Obama in time to preside at the Leader v. Facebook trial! He was confirmed eight days after the trial.
Never mind that Judge Stark came from Skadden Arps LLP where then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s chief of staff, Christina M. Chen, had also worked.
Never mind that Hillary Clinton had secretly entered into “election winning template” contracts with Facebook during the run up to the trial, failed to publish those contracts at the GAO (Government Accounting Office), then hid them on her private email server.
We’re just warming up.
Judge Michel essentially admitted that the Deep State shadow government (50%+ lawyers) has hijacked the U.S. patent system
Judge Michel said the U.S. patent system has succumbed to “propaganda campaigns” and “false narratives.”
America Invents Act (AIA)’s dirty little secret—pure Alinsky deception
The much hyped “America Invents Act (AIA) is named in classical Saul Alinsky style: call it the exact opposite of what it is. The truth about AIA is indeed the opposite. It became a “Get Out of Jail Free” card for Deep State corporate infringers. It enabled them to steal patents with impunity. These thieves use their deep pockets to hire large law firms, like Skadden Arps LLP, to tie up real inventors in endless litigation and “patent reexaminations.”
Further, the AIA permits the Patent Office to “invalidate” validly issued patent contracts without a trial–in gross violation of the Fifth Amendment Takings Clause. The Takings Clause says the government cannot confiscate your property without fair compensation. Just imagine going home tonight to find strangers occupying your home and refusing to leave. Then, when you call the police, they just shrug their shoulders. That is the lawless property theft ushered in by the AIA.
Evident Patent System Corruption
Obama’s Patent Office Director was David J. Kappos. Before coming to the Patent Office, Kappos was chief intellectual property counsel for IBM where he had worked for a quarter century. Kappos is a disciple of James P. Chandler, III, Bill Clinton’s national security advisor and author of the Economic Espionage Act of 1996.
In 2000, Chandler met Leader Technologies. He agreed to be Leader’s patent attorney once he realized that Leader had solved a huge technical “scalability” problem that he knew that the Deep State shadow government C.I.A. / NSA / FBI were having.
Chandler realized that Leader had innovated through a show-stopper weakness in “groupware” collaboration platforms supplied by IBM and Microsoft.
Chandler immediately conspired with Kappos and IBM to steal Leader’s programming source code once it was ready. To do this, they formed the IBM Eclipse Foundation on Nov. 29, 2001 with a $40 million IBM “donation.” All social media app platforms are based on the Eclipse code that has backdoor keys for the NSA / C.I.A. / FBI embedded by IBM and Chandler.
One of Kappos’ most devious parting acts when he left the Patent Office in 2013 was to get three of his IBM and Microsoft crony patent judges to meet in secret and invalidate one of Leader’s patents that was most concerning to them. Leader has others, so even this notion of invalidity was just for a “narrative of invalidity” that they spout today. Kappos used the AIA “reexamination” clause to attack Leader. The legalese for these corrupt actions is Inter partes review. Confused yet? Yes, it is deliberate.
Other Internet innovators and patent holders, including Dr. Lakshmi Aranachulum, former director of network architecture for Sun Microsystems, are being similarly attacked as we speak by IBM, JPMorgan SAP and others in the Deep State using the bogus AIA patent reexamination licenses to steal.
Kudos to Judge Michel for finally speaking up
To his credit, former Judge Michel specifically blames this “reexamination” corruption for deteriorating the U.S. patent system from first to tenth in the world, in just five years. He said, “The most worrisome impact of all this has been to discourage investment, R&D and commercialization.”
Real Social Networking Inventor Michael McKibben agrees with Judge Michel
We reached out to Leader chairman and lead inventor, Michael McKibben, for comment on Judge Michel’s speech.
McKibben said,” Judge Michel is one of the first senior patent judges to openly call out his colleagues on this corruption, good for him.”
“Tellingly, Judge Michel’s 2010 successor as chief judge of the Federal Circuit was Randall R. Rader. “
“Rader was chief judge in our Leader v. Facebook case. Rader failed to disclose that he had a lawyer-client relationship to Facebook’s appeal attorney Thomas G. Hungar from Gibson Dunn LLP. Hungar was actually representing Judge Rader in another conflicts of interest case and was silent about this obvious conflict.“
“Once the Federal Circuit circled the wagons around Facebook in our case, researchers started digging and discovered that the judges all had substantial amounts of Facebook financial interests prior to the Facebook initial public offering. When these FACTS were brought to Rader’s attention, he ignored them.”
“Why weren’t we surprised when on May 23, 2014, Rader was caught colluding on cases and clients with Edward R. Reines of Weil Gotshal LLP? Reines had even made an appearance in our Leader v. Facebook appeal supporting Facebook while representing the Federal Circuit Bar Association–another conflict that Rader ignored in our appeal.”

McKibben said, “So, is the patent system corrupt and anti-patentee? Obviously it is, as Judge Michel’s statistics show.”
“How embarrassing is it that America cannot even compete with inventors in Hungary? I have been to Hungary during my days in Christian music ministry. We even sang in St. Matthias Church in the heart of Budapest, right under the noses of the secret police. It is a beautiful country and the people were wonderfully gracious to us during those brutal days under communism. So, I don’t want to denigrate the talents of Hungarian inventors. But that said, the United States has 33 times the population of Hungary!”
America is in intellectual property crisis. Congress passed the AIA, so it helped create this crisis. Can the creator of the mess fix it? Or, are they hopelessly bribed and corrupted by these Deep State shadow government spy overlords?
President Trump can fix this: He can start by paying Leader for 17 years of free use of their social networking invention while generating revenue for the government
McKibben added, “Judge Michel’s statistics don’t lie. America is in an intellectual property theft crisis. This can start being corrected by President Trump honoring our Miller Act Notice we sent him in July. “
McKibben concluded, “God help our Republic to survive these intellectual property thieves. They are sucking the creative life out of our economy and our inventors, like us at Leader.”… millenniumreport
