They should not have dismissed me for what I believed, Florentino Floro said. Mystic dwarves Times Online Mark Stephens I find myself in the the Far East again and never cease to be astonished at the legal news here. If you were a lawyer in Manila you may not be surprised to find that a local trial judge reportedly changed from blue court robes to black each Friday in order to "recharge his psychic powers".
What might suprise you, however, is the fact that Judge Floro consulted three mystic dwarves named Armand, Luis and Angel, whom he claimed had helped him to carry out healing sessions during breaks in his chambers. The Philippines Supreme Court has now reportedly sacked Judge Floro, observing that his "dalliance with dwarves would gradually erode the public's acceptance of the judiciary as the guardian of the law, if not make it an object of ridicule.

The things other judges are doing make me want to call Davies and ask what took him so long! Usually the Judicial Conduct Reporters have a theme. Usually it's sexual harassment. Sexual harassment seems to be the judicial equivalent of the common cold.

But there are other themes: bullying people,. One of my favorites was "Judicial Road Rage. This was a collection of guys who didn't just yell at another motorist or flip them off, but had them arrested. These people actually sent their bailiffs out, or called the sheriff, and had motorists whose driving offended them tossed into the hoosegow. Not just one guy who did that, several of them! A gaggle! At the risk of sounding provincial, most of these do not involve California judges.
Whether it reflects strong moral fiber or mere lack of imagination, our judges don't seem as prone to things like making decisions by flipping a coin summer or falsely claiming to have won the Medal of Honor summer Nor do we talk to imaginary mystic dwarfs. That's what it says: imaginary mystic dwarfs. Until today, I would not have considered my lack of involvement with imaginary mystic dwarfs a great achievement. Until today, I would not have understood it as a compliment if someone said, "I've got some issues with Bedsworth; about the best thing I can say about him is he doesn't talk to imaginary mystic,dwarfs.

I love it because I've never previously gotten to type the phrase "imaginary mystic dwarfs. As near as I can determine, he's making this out to be a freedom of religion issue. He says, "They should not have dismissed me for what I believed. The prospect of judges being removed because of their personal belief systems is anathema to all of us.
But I think once it's established that you, "told investigators that three mystic dwarfs Armand, Luis and Angel helped you carry out healing sessions during breaks in chambers," you gotta expect to trudge through a little grief. I mean, these aren't just your ordinary, garden-variety, run-of-the-mill imaginary mystic dwarfs. These are imaginary mystic healing dwarfs! And you're on a first-name basis with them. You gotta expect the local bar to be a little leery when you tell 'em, "Counsel, I regret that I cannot grant your motion.
But if you'll just step into chambers, me and Luis and Armand will use our. Certainly it made Judge Floro's future pretty clear. I have no doubt that if I had told ANY of the lawyers who appeared before me, EVER, that me and the mystic healing dwarfs were gonna cure a little deafness and then go out for a run over the lunch hour and that when we returned we'd have the name of next year's Preakness winner, Certainly the Philippine Supreme Court thinks it lowers your score.
Although they were very diplomatic about it. According to Reuters, "The Supreme Court said it was not within its expertise to conclude that Floro was insane, but agreed with the court clinic's finding that he was psychotic. They may have been saying, "We're not psychiatrists, so we can't say he's gone stark, staring loony tunes on us, but we certainly agree with the doctors who said it. And, mirabile dictu, Judge Floro is appealing. I don't have a clue who to. Who do you appeal to after the Philippine Supreme Court disrobes you? Seems to me, you and the dwarfs have pretty much topped out when you lose in your nation's supreme court.
I can't really see The Hague taking this one on. But Judge Floro has vowed an appeal, and, since he can. And I'm not about to take a chance that I might miss the outcome of this saga. I'm going online as soon as I. Then I'm gonna contact the dwarfs and see if they can do anything about.. Comments by Lester F. In his case I think sixteenth century Spain would be a far better choice than contemporary Iceland. Icelandic elves, at least in so far as I can judge from the available literature, have little or nothing in common with avenging angels and similarly disposed spirit guides. Torquemada, on the other hand, might have found a use for Judge Floro's unusual capabilities.
The consideration given in some nations to elf-habitat has prompted at least one observer to suggest that elves enjoy legal protection, or "elf rights", in both Iceland and Ireland look for "Do Elves Have Rights" by Jeremy Harte; see also a discussion of elves in the context of a Yale Law School party at the Yale Daily News One has to consider the possibility that in.

Many Philippine Judges and Justices including their personnel were and are very corrupt. They regularly demand, extort and receive bribes - as the Court ruled that bribery can only be punished per entrapment proceedings. The Psychic Judge merely cites statistics, which is part of orthodox science. MORE lawyers nowadays complain of corruption in the judicial system compared to 10 years ago, according to the Social Weather Stations.
One out of two lawyers knows of a trial judge in their city or province who has taken a bribe but they did not report it because they could not prove it, said the SWS. In a briefing among lawyers Tuesday night, SWS president Mahar Mangahas said the perception of corruption in the various courts -- from the municipal trial courts all the way up to the Supreme Court -has risen among lawyers in the last 10 years. The SWS polled The last such survey was undertaken by. SWS from to Although half or 49 percent say they know a case in their own city or province where a judge.
The main excuse of those who kept silent is that they could not prove it," the SWS said. Among judges, only 7 percent said that many or very many judges were corrupt. The SWS said the judges' perception of the extent of corruption among court personnel was the same as in Mangahas said the survey showed that corruption "remains a serious problem in the judicial system but it is not. There's still the idealism," he said. Justice Bedsworths theme of sexual harassment has this counterpart, which had never been heard by the Judicial Reporter:.
Thompson, 57, was caught in the act by a clerk, trial witnesses, and his J. Visitors to Thompson's Creek County courtroom reported hearing a "swooshing" sound coming from the bench, a noise the court reporter said "sounded like a blood pressure cuff being pumped up. The AG's petition quotes Thompson pictured above as admitting that the pump was "under the bench" during the murder case and at other times , but he denied using the item, which was supposedly a "gag gift from a friend.

And if we count the dwarves, perhaps we could make Senators Boxer and Feinstein happy about the number of California judges on the court, provided Judge Florio and his companions decide to live in the land of fruits and nuts. After all, sounds like they would fit right in. A judge in the Philippines who claimed he could see into the future and admitted consulting imaginary mystic dwarfs has asked for his Supreme Court job back after being sacked. This may be the kind of breakthrough in international law that our leftwing looney judges have been waiting for!
Imagine the kind of decisions they could arrive at, if only they were allowed to read entrails and cast chicken bones. Maybe what this former judge needs to do is sit back and wait for an opening on the ninth circus court here in the US. Then, instead of consulting.

A Dwarven Elemental Mage. Have you looked at all into the story that's on the wires of late regarding the Philippines judge who has "Mystic Dwarfs" advising him? Seems like it might lie on that patented Rigourous Intersection of the Government and the Weird. The Supreme Court said it sacked Judge Florentino Floro, who worked in the Manila suburb of Malabon, after psychiatric and psychological tests concluded he was not fit for the job. Floro, who told a courtroom that he has psychic visions, also claimed he can appear in two places at once and is able to inflict pain on corrupt officials using his paranormal powers, the Supreme Court said in a statement.
It said Floro admitted he believes in duwendes a Tagalog word that means mystic dwarfs and that he has a covenant with his dwarf friends Luis, Armand, and Angel. But What About Freedom of Religion? I know this took place in the Philippines but I just want to make a point. If our president and Supreme Court Justices can consult with and seek the advice of imaginary beings, why cant a judge in the Philippines?

Hychechora is Noumenal. Net's repository for articles, information and blogs pertaining to magick, divination and the paranormal. Che Vaugh writes on Judge Floro and the 3 mystic dwarves. My thoughts on the matter. I share my home with a couple of spirits, some shadow people, some black blobs, one homunculus tulpa and a cat. I freely and publicly admit to practicing magick.
Ive had clairvoyant experiences since I was five years old. I read tarot cards and have in the past practiced psychic healing. I would like to think all this does not mean Im insane, but to be sure, there are psychiatrists who would likely think otherwise. After all, the term magical thinking is often used in the field of psychology to denote a symptom of a variety of mental illnesses. The field of psychiatry suffers from the same categorization and specialization that afflicts the rest of western medicine.
Dis-ease is viewed as a list of symptoms and the whole self of the patient is not taken into consideration. Because of this,. Being psychic does not mean you are insane. Of course, nor does being psychic mean youre not insane. In so-called enlightened societies which view such things with extreme skepticism, or in highly religious societies that view supernatural gifts as demonic, having psychic abilities can be very stressful.
Some psychics hide their secret forever, and go about a nice quiet normal life. Some psychics prefer to see their intuitive abilities as coming from outside them, from god or an angel, or the flying spaghetti monster. Some psychics become healers, teachers, gurus and helpers. Other use their abilities to take advantage of others and form cults. There is a myth popular among the fluffy new-age set that psychics are people who are vibrating at a higher and more compassionate level of consciousness.
Never has a bigger load of crap been uttered. Psychic ability is like other creative abilities, its like art or music - some people are born with a talent for it, other people develop the talent, but usually its a combination of the two.

And just like musicians are no more wise or compassionate than everyone else, so psychics are no more wise and compassionate than anyone else. Ive known plenty of pissy artists and Ive known plenty of pissy psychics. Participation in any art, including the psychic art, has the potential to educate and enlighten the practitioner, but that doesnt mean it always does. I am in no position to ascertain whether Judge Floro is truly psychic, and in even less of a position to ascertain whether he is fit to perform his duties. I do know that I would not want to find myself in his courtroom, not because of any claims to psychic ability, but because of the extremity of his spiritual and religious beliefs.
A judge should, ideally, be objective, and Judge Floro claims that his beliefs do not effect his courtroom decisions. But here in the US, time and time again we see judges not only allowing their religious beliefs to effect their decisions, but actually being chosen because it is expected of them to allow their religious beliefs to effect their decisions. Judges are no less human than the rest of us and all of us allow our beliefs to dictate our actions. I highly doubt Judge Floro is an exception. Judge Floro, like our own US president, claims that God put him into office.
Such egotism - as we americans have seen - is a very dangerous thing for a person in power to have. People who believe their power is bestowed by God are far more likely to misuse that power, thinking themselves invulnerable to scrutiny, and to the checks and balances that should be a part of every system of power. And I have to ask, if God really did want Judge Floro in office, then why did God not do more to prevent the judges removal from office?
I also have to question the nature of any spirit guide who would inflict an innocent child with epilepsy as punishment for the alleged crimes of his mother. This is not wisdom. This is not guidance. This is just nasty. But if, as Judge Floro claims, the guides were sent by the cruel. Of course, all of the above is just my personal opinion. Just because the judges beliefs differ from mine doesnt mean he should be dismissed from his job. Just because I wouldnt want to find myself in his courtroom doesnt mean others feel the same way.
So the following questions should be asked: Did the other members of the court - lawyers, bailiffs, officers, transcriptionist - respect the judge and find his decisions fair and balanced? Are the people of his jurisdiction satisfied with his performance as judge? The main consideration, religion, beliefs, psychic ability and eccentricities aside, should be this: Did he serve his community in a fair and admirable manner?
Now it can be told The Poisoned Dwarf's relatives at Red Cell in the Philippines have been interfering with the course of justice! In his defence, he told investigators that "three mystic dwarfs Armand, Luis and Angel - helped him carry out healing sessions during breaks in his chambers.
Rumors that Sir Gnomeship had got his Concorde out of mothballs have not been confirmed. I wonder if WPP has an office in Manila? He wrote a monthly column for AdWeek publication, TechnologyMarketing for nine years. Paracelsus is considered the most original medical thinker of the 16th century, far ahead of other medical scientists of his time. As a medical reformer he criticized the medical practices of his contemporary doctors,.
He pioneered in chemical pharmacology and therapeutics, and was the first to expose the errors of Galen. But Paracelsus, despite his outstanding contributions to medical science, also believed in supernatural things, intuition and the invisible causes of illness. According to a pamphlet written by Manly Palmer Hall, Paracelsus "warned his contemporaries that to divide therapy from religion was a grave error in judgment.
To him, the advancement of practical therapy depended upon a continuous exploration of the invisible side of nature, a search for causes and the realization that man was not simply a physical creature, but a living soul whose internal attitudes could profoundly affect his health. His motto was "alterius non sit qui suus esse potest" which means "let no man belong to another that can belong to himself". Belief in the existence of elementals or nature spirits is of ancient origin and universal.
One of the most original contributions of Paracelsus to human knowledge is his classification of the different types of elementals, which people are still using until now, adopting his descriptions of them. It is not certain where Paracelsus obtained his knowledge of elementals or nature spirits.
According to Hall, "He may have gained his information from the Arabs who had elaborate teachings about these invisible people. The doctrine of elementals from the point of view of Paracelsus begins with the following premise: "There are two kinds of flesh, the flesh derived from Adam and the flesh that is not from Adam. The flesh from Adam is coarse, earthly flesh that is tangible and can be held and tied.
