How connected is Judge Oscar Kazen? Plenty

It’s hard to overstate just how important the Kazen family is to the Law, as well as the Judiciary, especially along the Texas Rio Grande international border, and that’s because the Kazens rule South Texas, and they have for generations. When we say the Kazens ‘rule’ South Texas, we mean like absolute monarchs. Oscar, as are all the Kazens, is of Maronite Lebanese descent, and is related to the powerful Khazen family, whom French King Louis XIV elevated to nobility, calling them Princes of Maronite. It would appear, given the unsubstantiated ruling Oscar Kazen has been known to issue, Oscar still feels entitled to noble privileges. But we suspect it’s more of a family trait, since so many of them have become judges, and even the younger judicially-minded Kazens uphold the tarnished, not-constitutional ‘principle’ of Qualified Immunity that allows police to bully, berate, and yes even kill citizens, without facing any consequences — just like nobility. In Texas, you’re never too far from an attorney – and possibly a judge! – named Kazen: there are several in Austin; Laredo has a few; and Hutto, to name the first few that a Google search produced. You can even make sure you get a Christian attorney who’s blessed to be a Kazen, too.  In New Mexico? A Kazen family member can handle your legal needs in Santa Fe. Enough of direct blood relationships, what about the Kazen family ties that come with Catholicism, and the practice of naming godparents? In such a huge family of Catholics, there are obviously hundreds of godparents involved but once made a godparent to a child, you are bound to that child and their family as if they were your own. You are to provide a spiritual role model for the child, instilling Catholic values & principles at all times. One must be sufficiently faithful to become a godparent. So it was interesting for us to note Texas State Senator Judith Zaffirini’s FaceBook posted a selfie from “pre-pandemic” days with Hollywood actor and (as inconceivable as it might seem) possible future Texas governor, Matthew McConaughey, mentioning her “beloved Godson,” David Kazem.[1]
Abraham Kazen Jr., usually known as Chick Kazen (January 17, 1919 – November 29, 1987), was a U.S. Representative from Texas's 23rd congressional district, the first to serve in that particular position. Elected in 1966, Kazen served until 1985, having been defeated in the 1984 Democratic primary election by Albert G. Bustamante.

Now all of this would just be a passing coincidence if it weren’t for the fact that in the 2015 Texas legislative session, Senator Judith Zaffirini sponsored SB 1883 The Texas Wards Bill of Rights,

establishes a list of rights that all people under guardianship enjoy, unless they are specifically taken away by a judge. These include the right to live, work and play in the most integrated setting, visit with people of their choice, appear before the court to express preferences and concerns, have access to a monthly personal allowance, have the guardian visit at least once every three months, and more.”

Nowhere in Judge Oscar Kazen’s infamous January 29, 2019 Order does Judge Kazen specifically:

  • Limit Charlie’s right to appear before the court to express preferences and concerns, or
  • Limit Charlie’s  right to live, work and play in the most intergrated setting, or
  • Limit Charlie’s visiting with people of his own choice —

And yet that’s exactly what Judge Kazen has so brazenly allowed his chosen guardian for Charlie, the wife of Shavano Park Mayor, Mary Werner, to do to Charlie: abuse Charlie by removing Charlie’s fundamental rights, even though Judge Kazen did not specifically abridge those rights in his January 29, 2019 order

In an attempt to counter Mary Werner and Oscar Kazen’s brazen removal of Charlie Thrash’s rights, which has accompanied at least $1 Million so far missing from Charlie’s accounts — all spent on lawyers to argue to keep Charlie in guardianship, as well as for 24/7 home help care from Mary Werner’s associates — Laura Martinez has bravely engaged attorney Phil Ross to represent her in Martinez v Kazen, to attempt to right this monstrous wrong, perpetrated by an apparently well-connected Judge, whose extensive legislative, political, religious and family connections will no doubt keep him out of jail, which is where we firmly believe Oscar Kazen, along with Mary Werner, belong for the rest of their lives, for:

So when you think about Martinez v Kazen you might do well to consider the uphill odds, stacked against Laura Martinez and her attorney, Phil Ross, from the beginning. Because when you deal with one Kazen family member, you get the history and strength of a line of nobility who have ruled without question for centuries. Just because the family came to America in the 1800s, doesn’t mean they’ve left a single bit of the old country, and it’s enormous privilege, behind. Far from it.

If someone thinks a godparent-godchild relationship isn’t enough to keep a corrupt guardianship in place, then we suggest they speak to Nevada guardianship victims of attorney Jared Shafer. It was long rumored that one of the ways Shafer escaped serious consequences is because he’s rumored to be the godfather of then-Nevada Attorney General, now Senator Catherine Cortez Masto.  Jared Shafer’s been in the guardianship racket for nearly 40 years, and one of the reasons he’s persisted that long in defrauding millions out of innocent incapacitated Nevadans, is because, in his state, and his own ways, he’s as connected as Oscar Kazen is going to need to be to withstand the exposure that his Orders are not fact-based, much less conforming to existing state statutes.
