THROW THE BUMS OUT

 

THROW THE BUMS OUT

I’ll be 70 in March and I’ve been voting since I was 22. From my experience over those years I can say that they are not clowns in Washington. They serve well the people responsible for getting them in office – and it isn’t you and I.

“Turning them out” doesn’t do any good because their replacements, regardless of promises made to the voters, will serve the global money powers as did their predecessors. Those “turned out” will have lucrative jobs waiting for them on the outside.

Consider the alternatives “our” elected representatives have. They can serve the people and likely be assassinated, or they can serve the Plutocracy and have a lucrative career and more than comfortable retirement.

Lincoln defied the bankers and started printing money with no interest. He became the star of the show at Ford Theater.

The Lindbergs, father and son, were formidable enemies of the Federal Reserve. The Lindbergh baby was kidnapped and murdered and a scapegoat, Bruno Hauptman, paid for it.

Congressman Louis McFadden attempted to expose the Federal Reserve and fought it until his death by poisoning, the third attempt on his life.

John Kennedy sought to follow Lincoln’s example and take the power of creating money from the bankers. The bankers had people waiting for him in Dallas and, again, a scapegoat, Lee Harvey Oswald, was blamed.

Congressman Larry McDonald was the heir apparent to Robert Welch to head the John Birch Society. McDonald would have transformed it from an organization used to ferret out people susceptible to the truth and keep them chasing their tails into a force for liberty. They took out a whole airliner to get rid of him.

As long as those we elect have nothing to fear from us and everything to fear from the Money Powers, they will ignore us. Simply replacing them when the break their promises will not do it. The only choice we have is to remove from office, by “executive action,” those who will not honor their campaign promises.

NO TAXES

 

Should America Print its own Script and do away with taxes by all principle paid to state rather than the financial elite?

     Banks steal all principle by filing a 1099A after 90 days from final payment. Banks then enter abandoned principle as income for the Bank on their balance sheet.

     Principle paid to the state eliminates all taxes except for a 1.5% fee for the bank’s expenses of operation. All bank facilities and employees are state assets and operation.

       See Nehemiah 5:1-13, Also Ezekiel 18:13

       Why encourage bankers to violate Exodus 20:15

The following historical story is taken from a radio address given by Congressman Charles G. Binderup of Nebraska, some 50 years ago and was reprinted in Unrobing the Ghosts of Wall Street:

Colonies More Prosperous Than The Home Country

Before the American War for Independence in 1776, the colonized part of what is today the United States of America was a possession of England. It was called New England, and was made up of 13 colonies, which became the first 13 states of the great Republic. Around 1750, this New England was very prosperous. Benjamin Franklin was able to write:

“There was abundance in the Colonies, and peace was reigning on every border. It was difficult, and even impossible, to find a happier and more prosperous nation on all the surface of the globe. Comfort was prevailing in every home. The people, in general, kept the highest moral standards, and education was widely spread.”

When Benjamin Franklin went over to England to represent the interests of the Colonies, he saw a completely different situation: the working population of this country was gnawed by hunger and poverty. “The streets are covered with beggars and tramps,” he wrote. He asked his English friends how England, with all its wealth, could have so much poverty among its working classes.

His friends replied that England was a prey to a terrible condition: it had too many workers! The rich said they were already overburdened with taxes, and could not pay more to relieve the needs and poverty of this mass of workers. Several rich Englishmen of that time actually believed, along with Mathus, that wars and plague were necessary to rid the country from man-power surpluses.

Franklin’s friends then asked him how the American Colonies managed to collect enough money to support their poor houses, and how they could overcome this plague of pauperism. Franklin replied:

“We have no poor houses in the Colonies; and if we had some, there would be nobody to put in them, since there is, in the Colonies, not a single unemployed person, neither beggars nor tramps.”

Thanks To Free Money Issued By The Nation

His friends could not believe their ears, and even less understand this fact, since when the English poor houses and jails became too cluttered, England shipped these poor wretches and down-and- outs, like cattle, and discharged, on the quays of the Colonies, those who had survived the poverty, dirtiness and privations of the journey. At that time, England was throwing into jail those who could not pay their debts. They therefore asked Franklin how he could explain the remarkable prosperity of the New England Colonies. Franklin replied:

“That is simple. In the Colonies, we issue our own paper money. It is called ‘Colonial Scrip.’ We issue it in proper proportion to make the goods and pass easily from the producers to the consumers. In this manner, creating ourselves our own paper money, we control its purchasing power and we have no interest to pay to no one.”

The Bankers Impose Poverty

The information came to the knowledge of the English Bankers, and held their attention. They immediately took the necessary steps to have the British Parliament to pass a law that prohibited the Colonies from using their scrip money, and then ordered them to use only the gold and silver money that was provided in sufficient quantity by the English bankers. Then began in America the plague of debt-money, which has never since brought so many curses to the American people.

TRUE FREEDOM

ABSENT FROM THE BODY

PRESENT WITH THE LORD

Spoken at the funeral

May 24, 2003   Mozelle Clarke

     Romans 10:3, “For they being ignorant of God’s righteous, and going about to establish their own righteous, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God”

     Mozelle was wise. She submitted herself unto the righteousness of God. How? You ask. First, lets see what God said is the results of the submission. II Corinthians 5:21, “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteous of God in him.”

     Ephesians 2:8, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9, Not of works lest any man should boast.”

     Mozelle had the wisdom to accept a free gift. She became a Christian to insure that when she was to be absent from the body she would be present with the Lord. Her body lies before you. She is present with the Lord. What did it cost her? She accepted a free gift. Eternal life in the Heaven. A Free Gift.

   Is Christianity merely a stripping¸ an emptying, a giving up? Does it only consist of prohibition and negation? We answer, with a hearty and blissful emphasis, NO! A thousand times, No! Christianity is preeminently positive-intensely real-divinely satisfying. What does it give us in lieu of what it takes from us? It gives us “unsearchable riches” in place of “dung and dross.” It gives us “an inheritance incorruptible, undefiled and unfading, reserved in heaven,” instead of a poor passing bubble on the stream of time. It gives us Christ, the joy of the heart of God, the object of Heaven’s worship, the theme of the angel’s song, the eternal sunlight of the new creation, in lieu of a few moments of sinful gratification and guilty pleasure. And finally, it gives us an eternity of ineffable bliss and glory in the father’s house above, instead of an eternity in the awful flames of hell.

     I John 3:1, “Beloved, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.”

     Believe me, if the world placed its faith in Jesus Christ, as Mozelle did and followed her examples, lived by faith, and practiced a language of life that does not give lie to the language of the lips, the world would be for the better and God would be pleased.

       Did Mozelle know how to raise children? Let’s see.

       The duty of Christian is to “bring up their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.”

   What does this “bringing up” involve? One thing is certain, namely, that Christian training means a lot more than drilling religion into our children, making the bible a task book, teaching our children to repeat texts and hymns like a parrot, and turning the family circle into a school. Too frequently religion is made a weariness to the child, and the Bible a repulsive schoolbook.

     Mozelle knew the secret. What is really needed is to surround our children with a thoroughly Christian atmosphere, from the earliest moment; to let them breathe the pure air of the new creation; to let them see in their parent, the genuine fruits of spiritual life-love, peace, purity, tenderness, genuine kindness, unselfishness, loving thoughtfulness of others. These things have a mighty moral influence upon the plastic mind of a child, and the Spirit of God will assuredly use them in drawing the heart to Christ-the center and the source of all these beauteous graces and heavenly influences.

     There exists in our current education system a great failure, if we mistake not. Whether through a false tenderness, or laziness, we suffer our children to walk according to their own will and pleasure, and the strides they make along this road are alarmingly rapid. They pass from stage to stage with great speed, until, at length, they reach the terrible goal of despising their parents altogether, throwing their authority entirely overboard, and trampling beneath their feet the holy order of God, and turning the domestic circle into a scene of godless misrule and confusion. But have we not ourselves to blame for it? God has put into the parents’ hands the reins of government, and the rod of authority, but if parents, through laziness, suffer the reins to drop from their hands; and if through false tenderness and moral weakness, the rod of authority is not applied, need we marvel if the children grow up in utter lawlessness? Children are, as a rule, very much what we make them. If they are made to be obedient, they will be so; and if they are allowed to have their own way, the result will be accordingly.

     Are we then to be continually slap the reins and to wave menacingly the rod? By no means. This would break the spirit of the child, instead of subduing his will. When parental authority is thoroughly established, the reins may lie gently upon the neck, and the rod be allowed to stand in the corner. The child should be taught, from his earliest hour, that the parent only wills his good, but the parent’s will must be supreme. Nothing is simpler. A look is enough for a properly trained child. When a child under Mozelle’s guidance attempted to hide from the authority of Mozelle, Mozelle would say “I hear you breathing, implying that just as God, she knows every move and true heart condition. There is quiet dignity about one who really possesses authority; whereas the sudden fitful efforts of weakness only draw out contempt.

     We have found by observing Mozelle, through her many years of experience and careful observation that the real secret of successful training lies in the proper adjustment of firmness and tenderness. If the parent, from the very beginning, establishes her authority, she may exercise as much tenderness as the most loving heart can desire or display. When the child is really made to feel that the reins and rod are under the direct control of sound judgment and true affection, and not of a sour temper and an arbitrary will, there will be little difficulty in training him.

     In a word, firmness and tenderness are the two essential ingredients in all sound education; a firmness which the child will not dare to question; a tenderness which takes account of the child’s every real want and right desire. It is sad indeed if the idea, which a child forms of parental authority be that of arbitrary interference with, or a cold indifference to, his or her little wishes and wants. Is it not thus our heavenly Father deals with us; and He is to be our model in this as in all beside. God is the classroom.

     “Children, obey your parents in all things.” “Ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath; but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.”

       Mozelle is now with God. It is Mozelle’s desire that God be with us now and forever more.

Philosophy of Liberty

 

The Philosophy of Liberty or Freedom

The philosophy of liberty is based on the principle of self-ownership. You own your life. To deny this is to imply that another person has a higher claim on your life than you do. No other person or group of persons owns your life nor do you own the lives of others.

You exist in time. This is manifest in past, present and future time and in life, liberty and the product of your life and liberty. To lose your life is to lose your future. To lose your liberty is to lose your present. To lose the product of your life and liberty is to lose that portion of your past that produced it. A product of your life and your liberty is your property, the fruit of your labor and the product of your time, energy and talents. Property is that part of nature which you turn into valuable use. Property is the property of others that is given to you by voluntary exchange and mutual consent. Two people who exchange property voluntarily are both better off or they wouldn't do it. Only they may rightfully make their decision for themselves.

At times some people use force or fraud to take from others without voluntary consent. The initiation of force or fraud to take life is murder. To take liberty is slavery. And to take property is theft. It is the same whether these actions are done by one person acting alone, or by the many acting against a few, or even by officials with fine hats. You have a right to protect your own life, liberty, and justly acquired property from the forceful aggression of others and you may ask others to help defend you, but you do not have the right to initiate force against a life, liberty and property of others. Thus, you do not have the right to designate some person to initiate force against others on your behalf. You have the right to seek leaders for yourself, but you have no right to impose rulers onto others. No matter how officials are selected, they are only human beings and they have no right or claims that are higher than those of any other human beings. Regardless of the imaginative labels for their behavior or the numbers of people encouraging them, officials have no right to murder, to enslave or to steal. You cannot give them any rights that you do not have yourself.

Since you own your live you are responsible for your life. You do not rent your life from others who demand you obedience. Nor are you a slave to others who demand your sacrifice. You choose your own goals based on your own values. Success and failure are born the necessary incentives to learn and to grow. Your action on behalf of others or their action on behalf of you is virtuous is only when it is derived from voluntary mutual consent. For virtue can exist only where there is free choice. This is the basis of a truly free society. It is not only the most practical and humanitarian foundation for human action it is also the most ethical.

Problems in the world that arise from the initiation of force by government have a solution. The solution is for the people the earth to stop asking government officials to initiate force on their behalf. Evil does not arise only from evil people, but also from good people who tolerate the initiation of force as a means to their own ends. In this manner, good people have empowered evil people throughout history.

 

Having confidence in a free society is to focus on the process of discovery in the marketplace of values rather than to focus on some imposed vision or goal using governmental force to impose a vision on others is intellectual sloth and typically results in unintended, perverse consequences.

Achieving a free society requires courage to think to talk and to act especially when it is easier to do nothing.

Quote from CLOUDED TITLES by Dave Krieger

 

Circumstances in the way the mortgage loans are certainly different, but two things remain constant :

(1) The condition of (the chain of) title ; and

(2) The chain of custody of the promissory note.

These two conditions are on-going, for which there are no stature of limitations. The chain of title began to each piece of property in America when each State’s land recordation systems began to document conveyances between owners of land and their respective buyers. This recordation represented proof of ownership, a symbol of wealth.

My research in most cases (since 1999) has shown that the two preceding constants do not match. One of the options available to homeowners to examine condition of title is called a "quiet title" action. It is the only scenario where I have discovered that the damage to the chain of title appears to be ongoing with no statute of limitations. As long as the "clouds" on title to property remain, the property remains "technicall, unmarketable" because clear title cannot be conveyed. When clear-title can not be conveyed, for all intents and purposes, the value of the property is ZERO!

Foreclosure in and of itself is mostly a defensive-based term to the homeowner, whereby as the borrower, is in default and the lender is reclaiming their "interest" in the horne ; or business if it's in the commercial realm. Lender liability for the most part started in the commercial realm: yet I notice a vast amount of similarities in new and evolving cast studies that are comparable to the foibles of residential lending, As a reader of this work, you’re probably wondering why the term, "clouded titles" ? One only has to examine their own situation and ponder the following questions:

What if the chain of title to your home became flawed at the point your mortgage or deed of trust was recorded? What if the subsequent assignments and security interests were never perfected, or worse, never even recorded? Could you then legally sell your home without recourse from a future buyer? Do the lenders legally have the right to foreclose if the relationship they have with the investors who really "own" the portfolio is purchased by them under illusory pretenses? Wait! There's more. (no, it's not an infomercial !).

Do the parties attempting foreclosure legally have the right to foreclose if they never advanced any of the money in the transaction and are not the true beneficiaries? Do the judges legally have the right to NOT ask questions about the suspected fraud committed by the lenders? Should judges be allowed to carry on an agenda and just hand your home over to the lender just because they're "the lender"? Do attorneys have any kind of duty whatsoever to the distressed homeowner to help them seek relief when their first duty is to the court and their second duty is to the public? What if you're looking at your Deed of Trust (finally) and you see a paragraph containing the acronym "MERS" on it…naming them as a beneficiary? Did MERS loan you any money? Does MERS have standing to remove any case to federal court since it is "bankruptcy remote"?

 

IS YOUR MORTGAGE A PRODUCT OF FRAUD?

 

Why is it that there is such a problem with “lost Mortgage Notes” as is claimed by numerous lenders that are trying to foreclose today?

 

How could it be that there could be so many “lost” documents all of a sudden? Could it be that the documents weren’t really lost at all, but were actually turned into a source of revenue that was never disclosed as being a part of the transaction?

 

To believe that so many “original” documents could be legitimately “lost” in such a short period of time stretches the credibility of such claims beyond belief. Could this be the reason that MERS (Mortage Electronic Registration Systems) was formed in the 1990’s as a way to supposedly “transfer ownership of a mortgage” without having to have the “original documents” that would be required to be presented to the various county recorders?

 

Could it be they KNEW THEY WOULDN’T HAVE THE ORIGINAL DOCUMENTS FOR RECORDING and had to devise a system to get around that requirement? When the foreclosure action is filed in the court the attorney for the purported “party of interest”, usually the “lender” who is foreclosing, files a “COPY” of the “Deed of Trust” or similar “Investment Security” with the Complaint to begin foreclosure proceedings.

 

Is that “COPY” of the “Security Instrument” within the “regulations” of Federal Law under 18 U.S.C. § 474? Is it usually the same size or very nearly the same size as the original document? Yes it is and without question it is a COUNTERFEIT SECURITY!

 

Who was it that produced that COUNTERFEIT SECURITY? Who was involved in taking that COUNTERFEIT SECURITY to the Court to file the foreclosure action? Who is it that is now legally in possession of that COUNTERFEIT SECURITY? Has everyone from the original “lender” down to the Clerk of the Court where the foreclosure is now being litigated been in possession or is currently in possession of that COUNTERFEIT SECURITY?

 

What about the Trustees who are involved in the process of selling foreclosed properties in nonjudicial states? What about the fact that there is no judicial proceeding in those states where the documentation purported to be legal and proper to bring a foreclosure action can be verified without expensive litigation by the alleged “borrower”? All the trustee has to do is send a letter to the alleged “borrower” stating they are in default and can sell their property at public auction.

 

It is just ASSUMED that they have the “ORIGINAL” documents in their possession as required by law. In reality, in almost every situation, they do NOT!!! They are using a COUNTERFEIT SECURITY as the basis to foreclose on a property that was paid for by the person who signed the “Mortgage Note” at the closing table that was converted to money by the bank.

 

When it is demanded they produce the actual “original signed documents” they almost always refuse to do so and ask the Court to “take their word for it” that they have. They have, instead, submitted a COUNTERFEIT SECURITY to the Court as their “proof of claim” to attempt to unjustly enrich themselves through a blatantly fraudulent foreclosure action.

 

One often cited example of this was the decision handed down by U. S. Federal District Court Judge Christopher A. Boyko of Ohio, who on October 31, 2007 dismissed 14 foreclosure actions at one time with scathing footnote comments about the actions of the Plaintiffs and their attorneys.

 

Not long after that came the dismissal of 26 foreclosure cases in Ohio by U.S. District Court Judge Thomas M. Rose who referenced the Boyko ruling in his decision. How many other judges have not been so brave as to stand on the principles of law as Judges Boyko and Rose did, but need to start doing so TODAY?

 

BOTH of the original documents which are absolutely required to be in their possession to begin foreclosure actions. Almost every time the people that are being foreclosed on are able to convince the Court (in judicial foreclosures) to demand that those “original documents” be produced in Court by the Plaintiff, the foreclosure action stops and it is obvious why that happens! THEY DON’T HAVE THE “ORIGINAL” DOCUMENTS

 

Has any of this foreclosure activity crossed state lines in communications or other activities? Have there been at least two predicate acts of Fraud by the parties involved? Have the people involved used any type of electronic communication in this Fraud such as telephone, faxing or email? It is obvious that those questions have to be answered with a resounding YES! If that is the case, then the Fraud that has been discussed here falls under the RICO statutes of Federal Law. Didn’t they eventually take down the mob for Racketeering under RICO statutes years ago? Is it time to take down the “NEW MOB” with RICO once again?

How could this kind of situation ever occur in this country? Could it be that this whole entire process could be “studied concealment or misrepresentation” where the parties involved are responsible under the law for their conduct? Could it be that it is no “accident” that so many “wet ink signature” Notes cannot be produced to back up the foreclosure actions that are devastating this country?

 

Could it be that the overwhelming use of COUNTERFEIT SECURITIES, as purported evidence of a debt in foreclosure cases, is BY DESIGN and “studied concealment or misrepresentation” so as to strip the people of this country of their property and assets?

 

“He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.”

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:” Declaration of Independence

 

Could it be that a VERY substantial number of Banks, Mortgage Companies, Law Firms and Attorneys are guilty of outright massive Fraud, not only against the people of this country, but of massive Fraud on the Court as well because of this COUNTERFEITING?

 

How could one possibly come to any other conclusion after learning the facts and understanding the law? How many other people are implicated in this MASSIVE FRAUD such as Trustees and Sheriffs that have sold literally millions of homes after foreclosure proceedings based on these COUNTERFEIT SECURITIES submitted as evidence of a purported obligation?

 

How many judges know about this Fraud happening right in their own courtrooms and never did anything? How many of them have actually been PAID for making judgments on foreclosures? Wouldn’t that be a felony or at the very least, misprision of felony, to know what is going on and not act to stop it or make it known to authorities in a position to investigate and stop it?

 

How is it that so many banks could recover financially, so rapidly, from the financial debacle of 2008-09, with foreclosures still running at record levels, and yet pay back taxpayer money that was showered on them and do it so quickly?

 

Could it be that when they take back a property in foreclosure where they never risked any money and actually were unjustly enriched in the previous transaction, that it is easy to make huge sums by reselling that property and then beginning the whole “Unconscionable” process all over again with a new “borrower”?

 

How is it that just three years ago a loan was available to virtually almost anyone who could “fog a mirror” with no documentation of income or ability to repay a loan? Common sense makes you ask how “lenders” could possibly take those kinds of risks.

 

Could it be that the ability to “repay a loan” was not an issue at all for the lenders because they were going to get their profits immediately and risk absolutely nothing at all? Could it be that, if anything, they stood to make even more money if a person defaulted on the “alleged loan” in a short period of time? They could literally obtain the property for nothing other than some legal fees and court filing costs through foreclosure. They could then resell the property and reap additional unjust profits once again! One does not need to have been a finance major in college to figure out what has been happening once you are enlightened to the FACTS.

DAILY WALK

 

 

DAILY WALK

The Spirit of God delights to trace the boundaries of the people, and to dwell on the most minute details connected with their history. He takes a lively and loving interest in all that concerns them, their conflicts, their victories, their possessions, all their landmarks, everything about them is dwelt upon with a minuteness which, by its touching grace and condescension, fills the heart with wonder, love and praise. Man, in his contemptible self-importance, thinks it beneath his dignity to enter upon minute details; but our God counts the hairs of our heads; puts our tears into His bottle; takes knowledge of our every care, our every sorrow, our every need. There is nothing too small for His love, as there is nothing too great for His power. He concentrates His loving care upon each one of His people as though He had only that one to attend to; and there is not a single circumstance in our private history, from day to day, however trivial, in which He does not take a loving interest.

Let us ever remember this, for our comfort; and may we learn to trust Him better, and use, with a more artless faith, His fatherly love and care. He tells us to cast all our care upon Him, in the assurance that He careth for us. He would have our hearts as free from care as our conscience is free from guilt. "Be careful for nothing; but, in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known unto God; and the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." (Phil. 4: 6, 7.)

It is to be feared that the great majority of us know but little of the real depth, meaning and power of such words as these. We read them, and hear them; but we do not take them in, and make our own of them. We do not digest them and reduce them to practice. How little do we really enter into the blessed truth that our Father is interested in all our little cares and sorrows; and that we may go to Him with all our little wants and difficulties. We imagine that such things are beneath the notice of the High and Mighty One who inhabiteth eternity, and sitteth upon the circle of the earth. This is a, serious mistake, and one that robs us of incalculable blessing, in our daily history. We should ever remember that there is nothing great or small with our God. All things are alike to Him who sustains the vast universe by the word of His power, and takes notice of a falling sparrow. It is quite as easy to Him to create a world as to provide a breakfast for some poor widow. The greatness of His power, the moral grandeur of His government, and the minuteness of His tender care do, all alike, command the wonder and the worship of our hearts.

See that you make your own of all these things. Seek to live nearer to God in your daily walk. Lean more upon Him. Use Him more. Go to Him in all your need, and you will never have to tell your need to a poor fellow mortal. "My God shall supply all your need, according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus." What a source! "God." What a standard! "His riches in glory." What a channel! "Christ Jesus." It is your sweet privilege to place all your need over against His riches, and lose sight of the former in the presence of the latter. His exhaustless treasury is thrown open to you, in all the love of His heart; go and draw upon it, in the artless simplicity of faith, and you will never have occasion to look to a creature stream, or lean on a creature prop.
