I was profiled as a lesbian and wrongfully convicted of "stalking". The status was enhanced with a "sex offense" when I was sent to prison. As a result of my legal battles against the U.S. Government, I have become an unfavorable person suffering retaliation because I refuse to service American men.

I have appealed to the Federal courts and ALL of my cases were dismissed without review. In some instances, the state and federal courts, in both California and Oregon, deliberately set me up to fail by using their power of abuse to maliciously disintegrate my health in their acts of premediated murder.

Because of the selfish reasons of others who conspired for my false imprisonment, other malicious prosecutions and judicial injustice has taken place. Impropriety, prosecution for the sake of prosecution, lack of funds for legal aid to prove my innocence and/or other errors of one kind or another, has occurred.

They have left me to languish resulting in loss of liberty, civil rights, productive lifestyles, financial and personal ruin, mental anguish, social condemnation and personal and family embarassment for the remainder of my life.

U.S. officials refuse to grant me asylum or grant me protection from persecution as a result my $100k was wrongfully seized and I loss custody of my two sons. I have also lost other property wrongfully confiscated by U.S. authorities. All of this has deeply affected my health.

In order to qualify as a refugee and be granted asylum in the United States, an individual must have a well-founded fear of persecution on account of one of five grounds, which are (1) race, (2) religion, (3) nationality, (4) membership in a particular social group, and (5) political opinion.

The information contained on http://judiciary.zoomshare.com will reveal a pattern of gender discrimination. You will understand why women in prison are placed in cages. You will understand why women in prison spit at officials only to have their mouths forcibly shrouded. You will begin to understand why women in America are finally waking up advancing Jihad Janes.

In addition to demonstrating a well-founded fear of persecution, the harm feared is being inflicted by the government...and by persons and organizations that the government is unable or unwilling to control. http://judiciary.zoomshare.com
