(BREAKING NEWS – OP-ED) — I’m including the latest breaking news, including foreclosure-related cases, for your review and rumination.
News from the Lone Star State …
And the misinformation and disinformation continues, despite Texas’s Lt. Governor Dan Patrick telling Dr. Anthony “Flip-Flop” Fauci to shove it on FOX News. See the video interview with Laura Ingraham HERE! After seeing the number of patents Fauci has and will benefit from, you can certainly see my disdain in giving him a nickname, since he seems to be the “giant zit” on the rectum of all of the fecal disinformation that got everyone at each other’s throats (someone hand me another piece of ass-wipe … I seem to be out … everyone’s beat me to the supplies again).
The Texas Bar and Night Club Alliance filed a class action lawsuit, the second suit filed this week against Texas Governor Greg Abbott, for taking discriminatory actions against night clubs, claiming they’re hot spots for COVID-19. The suit asks for $10,000,000 in damages and states that Abbott should have given the bars more than 24 hours notice before ordering them shut down, which was not the case this time and the lawsuit maintains that Abbott is abusing his emergency powers “without proper legal notice.” The bar industry in Texas alone employs over 800,000 workers. Florida’s clubs have also been shuttered unless they serve food more than 50% of the time. In both states, salons and spas have been allowed to reopen, where bar owners claim the social distancing rules go right out the window because the salon stylists are touching the hair, scalp and face of the clients, regardless of whether they’re wearing a mask or not.
News from the Pot-Smoking, Open Carry, Gun-Toting State …
Meanwhile, in Colorado, one restaurant owner defied her state’s lockdown orders, keeping her restaurant (which serves alcohol) open and fully running. Lauren and Jayson Boebert kept Shooter’s Grill open despite a sheriff’s cease and desist order. This isn’t an ordinary bar and restaurant either. It’s located in Rifle, Colorado: CLICK HERE TO GET YOUR MIND BLOWN!
The significant thing about the owner, Lauren Boebert (a Florida native), is that she just defeated a five-time GOP U.S. Congressman (incumbent) in the 3rd U.S. Congressional Primary in Colorado … CLICK HERE FOR THE VIDEO! The 33-year-old restauranteur and mother of 4 faces off against Democratic challenger Diane Mitsch Bush in the November general election. It never ceases to amaze me how the mindset of America is changing more in favor of not only protectionist as to a country, but protectionist as to its people. Well … if you don’t know your rights, you don’t have any.
Just in case you missed it …
For those who missed Friday night’s broadcast with Dr. Judy Mikovits on City Spotlight – Special Edition … you can listen to the broadcasts (both of them) under the Show Archives (under the FES Banner) for FREE, on the CloudedTitles.com website! You can’t make for a great argument against Flip-Flop Fauci without knowing the science!
In other related QAnon-type news …
On yet even another note … this is a 45-minute video you might want to partake in if you have a bit more time: WATCH HERE! (It’s still on YouTube! WOW! … I got this video from one of my old school chums who’s an attorney in California!).
Meanwhile, have you noticed that Bill Gates has been quiet of late and they just arrested Jeffrey Epstein (who didn’t hang himself)’s sidekick, Ghislane Maxwell? Are we draining the swamp or what? 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 … senses working overtime! (thought you might like to take a break from the “heavy” in favor of some happy music)
In foreclosure-related news … you’re going to love this case!
In this instance, the alleged REMIC trust, which is nothing more than a glorified administrator for a cesspool of defaulted loans (and not really a REMIC), got its butt kicked in the Maine Supreme Judicial Court. Read the case here: Wilmington Trust NA v Berry, 2020 ME 95 (July 2, 2020)
This is why you have to be sharp forensically, especially when it comes to the Rules of Evidence.
Let’s move up to the federal level, with another FDCPA “published” win for the homeowners!
In this case, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau even got involved, submitting an amicus brief in a state whose courts just hate whiny homeowners. Read the case here: Bender v Elmore & Throop, PC, 4th App Cir No 19-1325 (July 2, 2020)
And this is why we have Courts of Appeals … because U.S. District Court judges always seem to be pro-bank, pro-debt collection agency, pro-whatever as long as they get to play God for 15 minutes. Patience is more than a virtue, especially when it comes to an FDCPA claim.
And when both the lower court and court of appeals seem to play “pin the tail on the donkey” with your rear end, there’s always hope in the Supremes!
And for yet another whammy involving Rules of Evidence, the hearsay rule and why it’s sometimes necessary to take the matter all the way up to a state Supreme Court, check out this case: Jackson et al v HFC III et al, Sup Ct Fla No SC18-357 (July 2, 2020)
And in my final stab at First Amendment freedoms … see the latest case where a high school went after a cheerleader-reject after she wrote “Fuck Cheer” on a Snapchat post … (hint, hint … the cheerleader won … go team!). The amazing thing is this case was precedent setting …
But for all the headaches and legal expenses incurred by mommy and daddy, I would think it’s better to control one’s emotions, especially on social media, unless you’ve got a big bank account and a serious axe to grind.
So much for a bit of light reading, eh?
Happy 4th. Stay safe.
Celebrate your freedom … while you still can!
