THE REAL REASON THE REMIC WANTS YOUR HOUSE …

(OP – ED) — The author of this post will be your host for the upcoming Orlando workshop event, “Beyond Foreclosure” and brings you the latest update on the foreclosure world so you can get a better understanding as to WHY you need the new information we’re going to be sharing at the upcoming workshop:

BEYOND FORECLOSURE ORLANDO

THE BIGGER LIE …

I wonder if you can actually put a figure to what you’ve been paying attorney(s) to defend your foreclosure, thinking the REMIC is just going to roll over and play dead and you’re going to get a free house.  I’ve got some startling news for you … news that has never been posted online by me before.

REMICs will not agree to a short sale!

It’s one thing if your property has seriously negative equity.  It’s quite another (these days) when it doesn’t matter what the foreclosure sale nets.  Why?

The REMICs want the foreclosure (and this comes straight from the REMIC’s attorneys mouths) is … wait for it …

If they accept a short sale, the Trustee (Administrator) of the REMIC has to pay the difference between what the property sells for and its face value (the value of the note).  If the Trustee forecloses, and the property sells for whatever, the investors who actually funded the REMIC “take it in the shorts”!   Thus … by foreclosing, the REMIC will not have to pay out any sums (or any of its profits) for losses incurred upon foreclosure.

Now you know why the REMICs want your home!  Now you know why it doesn’t matter what the securitization audit says or what claim you might have to the relationship between the REMIC and the Investors who funded it (and actually funded your loan).

We’re back to the dirty land record paper however … and this is why you need this workshop!   Not only do you need to learn HOW TO overcome the paper trail … and if you should even bother … you also need to know how to recover from foreclosure, because 9 times out of 10, the REMIC is going to win.  The REMIC will not let you do a short sale.  It has no incentive!

So what excuse are you going to give me for spending all that money getting that securitization audit done?  All of those little fancy boxes on the page are nothing more than …

Boilerplate Bullshit!

We can discover the same thing analyzing the chain of title.  The bottom line is … if the document contains false and misrepresentative information, there’s a right way and a wrong way to go about attacking it.  The bottom line is maximizing time and cash flow and homeowners who are being foreclosed on seem to think they have both when in fact (1) their days are numbered; and (2) they’ve been using the wrong mindset to overcome foreclosure.

This is why I spent the time putting together the materials for the upcoming workshop.  All of this is brand new … in a 3-ring bound notebook!

Yes, I did take a picture of the famous Dunluce Castle, which was used as the setting of House Greyjoy in the HBO Series Game of Thrones!  Yes, I took that picture when I recently visited Northern Ireland.  It made perfect sense to use this as the workbook cover because it reveres the old saying, “A man’s home is his castle!”

My visit to Ireland was two-fold.  One … I had not had a true vacation in years … and two … it gave me a chance to clear my head so I could be open to “receive” more inspiration.

STOP WASTING MONEY!

We’re going to teach you steps to help you rise above this problem.  I’m talking about cash flow.  Let’s face it.  If you had positive cash flow, you wouldn’t be in foreclosure now, would you?  So, rather than scold you about what you failed to do because of the lack of financial education, I decided that we should collectively pair you with an investor who has been making oodles of cash flow for over 40 years and will never have to work a day in his life again if he doesn’t want to.  In fact, he has set about making your life more exciting, by teaching you the secrets of investing and creating cash flow with little to none of your own money!

Don’t say I didn’t warn you … you will have to change your mindset if you want to overcome foreclosure.

Based on what I just told you about WHY the REMIC wants your house, you should be wholly incentivized to sign up and attend NOW!

THINKING ABOUT GETTING A SECURITIZATION AUDIT? YOU NEED TO READ THIS!

(BREAKING NEWS — OP-ED) — The author of this post concerns himself in affairs involving chain of title for use in case development by attorneys and uses this information and research as a part of educational materials provided at workshops around the country to assist attorneys in foreclosure cases.  

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (“CFPB”) has all but wiped out Certified Forensic Loan Auditors in California in the filing of a Complaint for Permanent and Injunctive Relief:

CFPB v CFLA et al, Complaint

The CFPB filed a formal complaint against CFLA and its officers, Andrew Lehman and Michael Carrigan, for allegedly engaging in deceptive and abusive acts and practices in connection with the marketing and sale of purported financial-advisory and mortgage-assistance-relief services to consumers. According to the complaint, since 2014 the defendants allegedly violated the Consumer Financial Protection Act (CFPA) and Regulation O by making deceptive and unsubstantiated representations about the efficacy and material aspects of its mortgage assistance relief services, as well as making misleading or false claims about the experience and qualifications of its employees. Additionally, the Bureau alleged the defendants’ representations about their services constituted abusive acts and practices because, among other things, consumers “generally did not understand and were not in a position to evaluate the accuracy of [the defendants’] marketing representations or the quality of the mortgage-assistance-relief services that [the defendants] sold.” Moreover, the Bureau claimed the defendants further violated Regulation O by charging consumers advance fees before rendering services.

As the result of the litigation, a stipulation to final judgment was generated, which you can read here: CFPB v CFLA et al, Stipulated Final Judgment

It should be noted that the proposed stipulated final judgment and order against the company’s principal auditor for providing “substantial assistance in furtherance of [the defendants’] unlawful conduct” in violation of the CFPA and Regulation O. The proposed judgment imposes a $493,403.04 civil penalty, of which all but $5,000 is suspended due to the auditor’s limited ability to pay. The auditor is also permanently banned from providing mortgage assistance relief services or consumer financial products and services.

So in effect, engaging in practices whereby you actually perform services for homeowners to help them with foreclosure relief/rescue makes you a target of the feds!

And I can tell you with a certainty that the pro-bank law firms across the country were very quick to report this, especially in light of the CFPB’s press release.

Doing research for an attorney that is intending on pursuing legal claims on your behalf is one thing, but actually engaging in offering services involving the homeowners directly (like loan mods) is taboo, especially when you charge them money up front with no guarantees. This is largely different from doing a Chain of Title Assessment (COTA) because the document is done strictly as a demonstration to the attorney for use in case development and is not used as evidence at trial.

I must also note here, as part of my Op-Ed “tirade” here … that DK Consultants LLC, who is sponsoring the upcoming workshop, is proactive and not reactive with its latest offering at the upcoming workshop, BEYOND FORECLOSURE, which CFLA in its present or nonexistent state cannot hold a candle to.

AMERICA’S PROBLEM IS THAT EVERYONE IS GENERALLY “REACTIVE”! 

My comments here may not be specific to your scenario; however, every time someone has a money problem, life as they know it, comes to almost a screeching halt while they figure out a solution.  The solution is a reaction to a bad problem. There is no telling how much money CFLA pocketed doing worthless, boilerplate, forensic and securitization audits for people and then going one step further in attempting to help them become more “reactive” by trying to solve their problems with lenders and their servicers.  These “solutions” appear to have turned out to be nothing more than delay … delay … delay … you lose … to the point where people have complained en masse to the CFPB, who decided to rear its ugly head and do something about it.  CFLA was the target.  Federal judges in certain circuits have already made statements to the effect that “there is no such thing as a forensic loan audit” and I think these judges are part of a bigger issue: a failed legal system.  The judges are only presented with and can only rule on what’s presented to them.  If the information is not rational or can be defended against by the banks, the judges will let it go.  For all intents and purposes, a lot of this information is not useful and expensive to procure.  It’s a waste of time and resources because people have the propensity to REACT every time they’re attacked, rather than avoiding the attack by being PROACTIVE!

THE TIME TO BE PROACTIVE IS WHEN YOU REALIZE THAT FINANCIAL ISSUES ARE IN YOUR NEAR FUTURE!

No one likes to be broke, especially in the land of the fee and the home of the slave.  Misery loves company.  This is why dramatic reality TV shows that demonstrate everyone else’s stupidity and misfortune reign supreme.  When it bleeds, it leads!  HELLO … 10 O’Clock News!  We all need a pity party, right?  NOT!

Do you know where you find “sympathy” in the dictionary, between “shit” and “syphilis”!   My “pity party” is now “PITI PARTY”!!!!

This is why we decided to take the approach that the best defense is a great offense, employed BEFORE the SHTF!  This is why we are doing the workshop in November!

See the details here! BF FLYER UPDATED

There is no sense in wallowing in misery when you actually have the tools and resources available to do something about your situation BEFORE it becomes mission critical!

Over time, we have learned what works and what doesn’t work.  Statistics show that 98% of all foreclosure cases that are litigated end up being ruled upon in favor of the banks.  That means 2 out of 100 cases end up in a “with prejudice” dismissal.  With those kinds of numbers facing you, what’s stopping you from being proactive?

 

UPDATE:  This article seems to have ruffled some feathers, especially from people who claim to be Certified Forensic Loan Auditors.  I remember the time Andrew Lehman called me up and insulted me on the phone, telling me the reason he was making so much money because he was doing workshops and I was just writing books.  Granted, Mr. Lehman has a law degree (J.D.), but I don’t see, “ESQ.” anywhere unless things have changed in his profile.  SB4 in California strictly forbade attorneys from doing loan mods and what makes this situation so unique is that there are federal judges that have been quoted as saying, “There’s no such thing as a forensic loan audit!” in their opinions and orders.  When you put stuff like this into motion and attack the very underpinning of the judges’ own pension funds, which REMICs are all tied to, you risk attack.  This is what I have been saying.  Whether Carrigan copped out, he at least knew that folding would save him from having to pay a half-million-dollar fine.

This government is famous for demonizing people.  I speak from experience.  So writing me and threatening that they’re going to come after me, when I’m working under attorneys and with investment groups, putting up our own funds to save homeowners … I find any comments counterproductive.  I don’t need a securitization audit to know that the REMIC is not going to allow you to win your court case, boiler plate or not. My commentary in the article came from attorneys who have put this stuff (in multiples), side-by-side, and the material was useless in court, especially when you have a judge with a size 9 shoe trying to shove it up the attorney’s anal sphincter!  So don’t lecture me on who is going to get in trouble here (“world of hurt”).  

The truth is slowly but surely coming out.  Anyone who stands up to the banks in any way, shape or form is going to get attacked … some not so much as others.  It depends on how much shit you stir up.  If the average homeowner would take the time to study how the mortgage industry operates, they would realize that we’re headed for another bubble and borrowing money from banks at a time like this is risky.  Investing in REMICs is even riskier, especially when the REMIC is not going to let the homeowner win in court if the REMIC can help it.  Again, 2 chances in 100 for a with prejudice ruling in the homeowner’s favor.  Maybe none of our stuff is working.  Maybe some of it is working.  All I know is as a reporter, I report what is said, analyze it for myself and form my own opinion, whether you like it or not.  The government has more money and greater prosecutorial resources than Andrew Lehman, J.D. and if the government wants to squash him like a bug, it will.   Been there, done that.

NEW UPCOMING FORECLOSURE DEFENSE WORKSHOP … OUTSMART THE BANK!

(BREAKING NEWS – OP-ED) — This news is especially important for those who can get past the PITI PARTY! 

My definition of PITI is not the same as “pity”.  And there are more ways than one to come out shining when facing foreclosure.  Of late, due to the affordable housing crisis in America (and we’re not the only country facing it either), there are some ingenious ways to recover, if only we had a way to combat the issue of cash flow. The reason many Americans still face foreclosure troubles is because the market has not fully re-set itself.  The economy has certainly been robust in the U.S.; however, the economy is cyclical and there are ways to fight cash flow issues due to these economic downturns. Let’s face it … our world is financially “broken” in so many ways.

We have to stop making false assumptions about foreclosure …

Foreclosure is the world’s way of telling us something is wrong with our decision making processes.  The problem with foreclosure is … we let it consume us to the point of becoming neurotic, which I liken to a symptom of PTFD (Post Traumatic Foreclosure Disorder).  Instead of letting the foreclosure consume your life, what if “we” (my collective team) could show you a way to not only survive a foreclosure, but come out of it smiling with goal-setting plan that pushes beyond the objectives of the bank that’s attacking you (through its mortgage loan servicer).

Put November 2-3, 2019 on your calendar.  That is a very important date, or it should be, because that is the date of our next upcoming foreclosure defense workshop, this time in Orlando, Florida at the Hampton Inn & Suites’ newly-remodeled ballroom!  I will have details on this site towards the end of this month (August).  In THIS foreclosure defense workshop, we’re not only going to demonstrate new techniques for carrying on a strategically-planned “game of thrones” against the servicers, we’re going to show you a way to make capital gains, possibly without even using any of your own money … and end up with another house … completely out of reach from the banks … and completely yours … depending on HOW you play the game.

In this new “game”, we’re going to show you the HOW-TO’s of acquiring property, how to target property, how to change your mindset and direct your focus on getting property that was destined to become a potential new home for you without being done at someone else’s expense.

This is not a gimmick!  This process has actually been done over and over again … and the person presenting this process at the upcoming workshop has done this over and over again and has quite the portfolio of homes, netting himself a ton of cash flow.  Isn’t that what you need to stop the foreclosure crisis in your own home?  Cash flow?  If you had the opportunity to learn about using real estate to create cash flow from a practical (and not a dream state) aspect, wouldn’t you be interested?

The internet can be a dangerous place … full of all sorts of offers and gimmicks, but the methods that we’ll be teaching you in this workshop are time tested and can be used to overcome foreclosure!  We’re doing these methods right now!  It’s all about mindset.  It’s time to share new information, not just the same ‘ol, same ‘ol.

How about we add a new perspective to your game plan, all taught in a 2-day class by not only myself, but also by an investor, a real estate broker, who used to be an Asset Manager for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)?  He’s figured out a way to acquire property cheaply, which could be your PLAN B … not only to create cash flow … but to end up with a completely PAID OFF HOME that you can live in and control, without making the sacrifice of having to move far away in order to survive.  And THIS investor (who I work with in my network) has decided to come and share what he knows and teach you the tricks to finding property in ways other nationally-known investors haven’t even thought of!

We have reserved an entire ballroom (something we haven’t done before)!

The question is … will you be in one of those seats?  Seating is limited.

Transportation from Orlando International Airport is FREE!

A hot breakfast is FREE (if you book a sleeping room at the hotel)!

All you have to do is enroll in the workshop and get there!

We will still keep the couples, investors, attorney-client deals in place from past workshops!

We’ve now acquired research we’ve not shared before!  Research that can help you acquire property using tools already available to you!

This updated foreclosure defense-related program is open to homeowners facing foreclosure, homeowners NOT facing foreclosure, investors who want a NEW, inexpensive way to acquire property, attorneys who want to capitalize on specific types of “delay games” (after all, attorneys play that game already, right?) and make real money helping homeowners instead of screwing them … and real estate agents and brokers who want to grow their business and increase their cash flow!  And we’re NOT going to make you pay tens of thousands of dollars to get this information (like other real estate gurus have).

We’re also going to be sharing directives on what to do when your current attorney screws you and how to fight back (we’ve never shared these options before either) and possibly get some of your ill-spent money back!

It’s time to stop the pity party and time to put on the mindset of right thinking in a different kind of PITI PARTY!

This country is lacking in financial education!

Stay tuned for more information about how to use the Internet to find real estate deals that can potentially net you not only cash flow … but a way to eliminate the banks from your life for good!

Put the above-mentioned dates on your calendar.  If you want to learn to not only defeat foreclosure using handy internet research tools and how to capitalize on potentially acquiring your own home (which you could end up with absolutely out of reach of the banks) … mortgage free, wouldn’t that be a good thing?  We’re going to show you a way to acquire a new place to live while screwing over your current mortgage loan servicer!  Wouldn’t THAT be a good thing.  What if we showed you how to acquire all of the tools to do this completely by yourself, or with a coach that has done what he teaches (practices what he preaches) multiple times over?  Wouldn’t that be an even better thing?

In short order, we’ll get you the details!

We will provide you with a road map to get to Plan B.

We’ll provide you with the tools to do the research and where to place your focus (instead of fretting about when you’re going to get kicked out of your home)!

I’ll be honest.  A lot of us in the financial education and investment world haven’t been looking in all the right places for the deals.  Why not share these kinds of strategies to help people recover from foreclosure?  This workshop is different from any other workshop I’ve ever taught because what I’m learning here is stuff EVERYONE should already know and be using to recover from the stress of foreclosure!

HINT: The Alphabet Soup of Knowledge … and knowledge is power! 

With these goodies, I anticipate we will have a max capacity room full of people looking to recover and get ahead, not just living hand to mouth and paycheck to paycheck.  Stay tuned!

BOTH QUIET TITLE ACTIONS AND C&E ACTIONS ARE DECLARATORY RULINGS! UPDATE!

(OP-ED) — The author of this post is not an attorney and thus cannot give legal advice.  However, based on the research contained herein, one can share without retribution; thus, let this be for your educational value only! 

UPDATE … NEW IDEA!  (Please move to the bottom of the article to read my thoughts on this!)

One judgment appears to be a “cheap date”, while the other judgment isn’t.

Which one is cheaper to prove?  Why … the C&E of course!

The “C&E” should become part of everyone’s vocabulary these days.  I can give you over 500-million reasons WHY a C&E is important to every American property owner.  The main one is adverse condition of title to over one-third of every parcel of land in America!  That’s the biggest reason.

How can you consciously sell a piece of property to another human being when there is clear evidence of chain of title issues present, especially when “MERS” is involved?

The C&E has been in the forefront the entire time, albeit not exclusively.  Everyone knows that quiet title actions have been around for centuries. But … and I use this caveat succinctly: Quiet title actions are more than just a simple step in clearing title to a piece of land.  Like the C&E, both matters involve an evidentiary proceeding.  Both are rooted in declaratory relief.  Both require a certain amount of discovery.  However, the C&E requires less discovery because you’re only targeting one suspect document in the real property records, while the Quiet Title Action focuses on the entire chain of title, leading back to the document (usually the mortgage or deed of trust) that plagued the chain of title in the first place!

Back in the days preceding the first financial collapse in 2008, mortgage brokers and their title companies were so quick to file stuff in the land records that: (a.) they submitted the documents incorrectly for recording; (b.) they submitted MERS-originated documents to the county recorder knowing full well that the borrowers encumbering their property had no knowledge their loans were being securitized; and (c.) they did this knowing that a majority of the documents being recorded contained information on loans that were designed to default years later, causing a huge rash of foreclosure actions that plagued the United States from coast to coast.

I can tell you with a certainty (after having lectured to hundred of various county clerks) that a lot of clerks (recorders, registers of deeds, etc.) these days still don’t understand what MERS is and what kind of issues became predominant after MERS-related assignments are recorded.  I have been asked from time to time whether we should sue county clerks and recorders and my answer is “NO” (not just NO but HELL NO)!  These folks are generally elected officials that have a bond.  These folks unknowingly became victimized by the “MERS process” as much as the collective body politic affected by borrowing that was intended to be obtained from the secondary mortgage markets.

In The C&E on Steroids! Attorney Al West and I bring forward the reality of challenging documents through declaratory relief, especially the documents created from 2004 through today.

Yes!  These entities are still “manufacturing” bogus documents and causing them to be recorded in the land records all over the country!

And what’s even more astounding … MERS and its parent have absolutely NO IDEA that the MERS name was being used in these assignments!

The culprits … 

Mortgage loan servicers, third-party document mills and title processing services are the guilty parties!

Secondary to these groups of land record predators are the foreclosure mill law firms prosecuting the foreclosures themselves!

The potential targets … 

All of the above … depending where they’re located.

Again, The C&E on Steroids! describes WHO these targets are … WHAT prompted them to become targets  … WHEN they became targets … WHERE they got involved as targets and WHY they are targets  … and more importantly, HOW the “system” played us in letting them become targets!

Wouldn’t it be nice to know WHO your enemy is BEFORE engaging them in a legal battle? 

This is why is becomes important to understand the principal of declaratory relief.  It allows us to obtain discovery to get at the “root” of the problem.

Most homeowners don’t get that.  They think, “Okay, I’m going to get pissed off and sue everybody!”  They let their emotions get out of whack, failing to recognize the tools available to isolate and attack individual targets to further corrupt a chain of title to the point where a county court HAS TO quiet title title in order to comply with marketability statutes!

California attorney Tim McCandless was recently quoted as saying:

” … the more recent strategy of attacking the assignment of mortgage and seeking nullification of that instrument has met with some success and it should succeed, because you are attacking the facial and substantive validity of that specific instrument and not the entire mortgage or deed of trust. That strategy merely attacks the technical requirements for creation and recording of an an instrument affecting title to real property and attacking the substantive validity of the assignment by revealing that the debt was not transferred to the assignee by a party who owned the debt.”

The success in doing a C&E would seemingly “cut the legs out from under” the perpetrator of any future alleged foreclosure, right?  It would stand to reason that without an assignment being present in the chain of title, the mortgage loan servicer and its counterparts that were probably the culprits behind the very assignment they’re relying on as a tool in their foreclosure arsenal would be affected directly by the “lack of gunpowder” in their magic bullet.  The only thing they’re attorney will say is, “These people just want a free house, your Honor!” because they don’t have anything else they can say that will evoke the emotion of the Court to screw the homeowner one more time!

The beauty of this process is that it can be used at any time prior to foreclosure without bringing the mortgage loan servicer itself into the fray.  And it can be used in both deed of trust and mortgage states!  All 50 states have statutory mechanisms for declaratory relief.  All 50 states have rights to attack phony documents!

Further, there is case law out there that has taught us much in the way of educational value!  That case law is described in The C&E on Steroids! 

In fact, the case law Al West and I discuss in this book and the related course materials SHOW YOU validity past what attorney McCandless previously described!

And it all revolves around a simple and concise declaratory relief action. Yet, homeowners will continue to go out and make a “mountain out of a molehill” (go overboard in citing every cause of action under the sun, thinking they’re entitled to damages), when a simple action designed to knock these bogus assignments out of the land record create a precedent of bad behavior on the part of those who would undertake the illegalities of trying to steal your homes!  This is not a pipe dream process.  This process has been used countless times and has been successful because of the patience and effort put into drafting the proper complaint against the proper parties, isolating them in such a way as to keep the matter in county court!

Federal courts will generally NOT hear these types of cases.  Suing the wrong party in a C&E will get your case removed to federal court, where the judge is likely to dismiss it, because federal law has already declared declaratory rulings to be discretionary.  In state court, judges do not have that option.  They HAVE TO hear that complaint.  This is why Al West and I decided to get to the bottom of the root causes for doing a cancellation and expungement action and extrapolate the material into something useful for the average American consumer and put it into an 8-DVD/book weekend training kit. America has to know there is a remedy out there that can be used to attack phony documents!

If you don’t know your rights, you don’t have any!

UPDATE!:  While I was having a conversation with an aggrieved party, the thought crossed my mind as to the type of attorney that would be GREAT to utilize for the C&E when the opposing law firm is your target … 

Who can you think of that isn’t intimidated by prosecuting attorney misconduct and malpractice? 

Legal Malpractice Attorneys (they prosecute malpractice for a living!) … add that to your arsenal (just Google them … they’re out there)! 

I found at least a dozen in the Dallas-Fort Worth area alone! 

If your own attorney screws you in the process, it may be that your defense attorney is “working for the bank/servicer” under a silent agreement to feed you to the wolves.  Why not prosecute BOTH ends of malpractice if you’re going to attack one for failing to defend your case adequately.  

Just a thought.

IT’S A GOOD THING WE HAVE FREEDOM OF SPEECH & EXPRESSION & …

(OP-ED) — The author of this post is quietly celebrating this 4th of July (NOT!) with some outrageous commentary about where America is headed.  These opinions are his own and in no way should piss you off as to where many Americans are getting “their cues” from.  Still … we have been given inalienable rights to freedom of speech and expression … and thus, there is an intended consequence (a reaction for every action) when people can’t take satire for what it is. 

Breaking away from the usual posting routine, I felt compelled to chase down Twitter feeds of 8-year-old Ava Martinez, the little actor of sorts who plays “Mini AOC” (a satirical example of Socialist Party Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez).  I found them to be quite humorous … why is she and her family getting death threats from “the left”?

Don’t most Americans really recognize politics for what it is?   It’s the opportunity to manipulate our minds into believing that both sides of government want to “take care of us”.  Is that what we really want?

Don’t most Americans value homeownership?   (Clinton AND Bush)

Don’t most Americans feel that they should be left alone if they want to be left alone?  (Randy Weaver, whose wife Vicki had her head blown off by Lon Horiuchi, an FBI sniper while she was holding a baby in her arms.)

Should it then be right for people to harass others for their beliefs?   (Andy Ngo)

Should it be right to run over people with cars just because they don’t like their mode of freedom of expression?  (Charlottesville)

Should it be right for people to walk into churches and synagogues and start exacting their own brand of justice upon the congregation (pick any church or synagogue in the last year where services were disrupted and people killed by gunmen with a grudge)?

It appears that BOTH SIDES want to fuel the “disinformation chain” with political speech so much so that Americans are extremely frustrated with Congress altogether, doesn’t it?  George Orwell long ago predicted this would happen.

I majored in political science and journalism in college.  I found fascism amazing in that people actually bought into that crap.  They buy into it until it turns into full blown authoritarianism.  That leads to communism.  Remember the Cold War?  Remember Roy Cohn?  Hell, the government even went after Lucille Ball, accusing her of being a communist!

I found corporatism amazing too; however, the lobbying groups that represent the corporate state have become so commonplace among us that many living in their sedate comfort zones don’t realize that corporate America is wielding power that is corrupting both sides of our government?   Corporatism is NOT fascism, folks?   Corporatism is based on oligarchy.  Fascism is based on a dictatorship state.  We have representative government here in America.  At least I thought we did until this political bullshit started up.  Now, we don’t know WHO to believe.

I had to reflect on freedom of speech, expression, religion and all of the other freedoms afforded to Americans on this, a sacred political holiday.  It was on this day that our Founding Fathers declared their independence from Britain, fueled by a 3% tea tax.  Then there was a Revolution.

You see, bad press is still press!  BOTH SIDES of the aisle still don’t get that.  They have launched such wide and varied political tirades the likes of which have not been seen since the pre-Civil War days!  Do you get my drift?

If we don’t start addressing our immediate issues at the county level (and the city level) … and stop the states and federal government from using their political prowess to usurp our rights … another Civil War or Revolution is just what you might have?

Bully for Ava Martinez (pictured above) for taking a stand and mocking Socialist Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez!  She has a Constitutional right to mock the Congresswoman.  It’s obvious that an 8-year-old can read between the lines.  Why can’t we?

What do you want for your children?   Remember Jefferson’s famous quote (he was the 3rd U.S. President, remember?):

(the above courtesy of The Liberty Tree)

Remember that while you’re setting off all those fireworks tonight.  Think about WHO manufactured those fireworks, who imported those fireworks … and why you’re setting them off (at some expense to your pocketbook).

Isn’t America great?   Not for long if the foregoing keeps up!   Do your part to stop the “monster” from controlling your life!  Call for the politicians to stop this nonsense or face the music at the polls in November of 2020!

I end with this infamous link: CLICK HERE FOR A POLITICAL LAUGH!
