STRATEGEMS IN AN UNCERTAIN WORLD

(OP-ED) — This post contains not just the author’s opinions, but responses to our current scenarios by others who have decorated our past … for your educational purposes only and does not reflect posturing one’s mindset to commit an act contrary to our Constitution. 

Suggestion … open a new screen and click this link and listen while you read this post.

The author of this post is a self-professed Libertarian, yet he cannot condone all of what that platform espouses.  We now shift to the first person …

I postulate nothing here for the purposes of self-aggrandizement but rather for the purposes of refreshing the mindset of those who choose to read the diatribe of others commingled somewhere in my subconscious.

Patriotism comes in many forms.  It is simply not just for the purposes of stating that you are an American.  Declaring oneself as a “U. S. citizen” has certain connotations that go along with it.  Many will say the latter is capitulating to administrative, 14th Amendment servitude, while the former declares themselves to be “free men”.  In today’s uncertain times, this scares the hell out of the government, who has had more than two century’s chances to corrupt the intentions of our Founding Fathers.

What a better way to infiltrate the sanctity of decent, human behavior than to enslave it in lockdowns, inundate it with programmed media diatribe and scare it into submission with disease, violence, shame and self-doubt. If you have not taken notice of your thought processes lately, this is exactly what the powers-that-be, well-intentioned or otherwise, have shown to be their true colors, whether as that taken as “the color of law” or “the color of conscience”.

Welcome to the New America … where dead people vote and criminals get away with shooting their fellow man on the city streets until the conscience of a failed justice system finally restrains them … where people have been duped into believing they’re safe if they follow government mandates, which randomly change from time to time, many in contradiction to each other to the point of confusion. For the report on dead people voting: Critical Condition-Dead People Vote

Confusion is the ultimate tool to confound a populace into doing whatever it is those in power demand of them.

Prime Example: Operation Warp Speed HHS Outline

Those in power have enemies.  Many of those enemies are within the elitist structure and seek to undermine what is good for America.  No sooner did the foregoing “outline” manifest itself, CDC Prevention Director Dr. Robert Redfield made comments about face masks being the “most powerful public health tool” against COVID-19, “more guaranteed to protect” against the virus than a potential vaccine. That doesn’t speak well for the medical community, but great for adding confusion to the mix.

Properly translated (into Libertarian thought) … when Deep State is challenged, more confusion is warranted. When examining the diatribe, vent which statements are complementary to each other versus those statements that are contradictory to each other.  On one hand, we’re told we have to wear masks by Dr. Anthony Fauci (who has made numerous misstatements about their effectiveness) and on the other hand, that wearing masks is our only saving grace, quoting Redfield of the CDC.  Yet BOTH of these so-called “doctors” are downplaying the vaccine, heavily promoted by the Trump Administration as being the only way to help stop the spread of a virus that we (by now) should all have known was a purposeful and deliberate bioweapon.  Where that virus came from is still in dispute; however, the fact remains is that many Americans are so confused by what they hear in the media, a majority of those surveyed won’t take the vaccine but would rather die of complications of bacteria infiltration from the masks that none of them really have an understanding of how to wear (even in light of statements made by Dr. Russell Blaylock).

Confusion = “Some therefore cried one thing and some another,

for the assembly was confused, and most of them did not know

why they had come together.” Acts 19:32

Confusion is rooted in history.  Riots are rooted in our past.  We cannot ignore the WHY in all of this.  However, in today’s times, history has constantly been repeated over and over each time a riot takes place because those doing the rioting can’t make up their mind as to what “justice” is.  The commonality exists however, that today’s justice system is very difficult to trust, especially for those who believe they don’t have access to it. Confusion is also rooted in that belief because everyone has access to the justice system; however, they are not aware of how to access it because the government has dumbed them down in public education and made them unaware of how the judicial system works.  Everyone can have their day in court if they could simply figure out the HOW to get it.

Look at the signs and placards waved at any protest and see the mixture of thought processes all running contrary to one another … a prime example of confusion.

Why Washington Needs An Enema … 

I believe there is a movement afoot that goes much deeper than masks and vaccines.  It’s for the ultimate control of America.  BOTH sides of the congressional aisle have taken part in this movement.  There are factions within the medical community as well as the government’s own bureaucracy that are part of this movement. More attention has been paid to discrediting the public office of the President than any other time in American history.  More attention has been paid to “white-washing” the basic civil rights of all Americans with civil unrest devoted to only one part of the population.  Politicians have chosen to abuse their power in office by shutting down economies all over America without any scientific basis in fact, based on the confusion promulgated by the factions within the U. S. government that further seek to discredit the most powerful leader in the world.  Our very own Congress has, at one time or another, disrespected the office of the President, who is there to “enforce the laws” enacted by Congress.  BOTTOM LINE: When all is said and done, it doesn’t really matter WHO the President is.  The President has no say in how you live your daily life … but rather each state government determines how to best screw its Citizens, if they’re not paying attention.

If one reads the Constitution of the United States of America, one will come to realize that a treaty supersedes the Constitution.  The current President has gotten America out of numerous treatises to the benefit of America (I believe), given the current negative scenarios facing America today.

Now look at all of the treaties that have been signed (and by and through whom) since our Founding Fathers contemplated the framework for a country free of government control and ponder the following …

“The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government – lest it come to dominate our lives and interests. Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who comes near that precious jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. When you give up that force, you are ruined.”  – Patrick Henry

In order for change to occur, Americans must come together and seek to vote out those who disrupt our daily lives.  This will not happen when there is confusion.  This must be a clear and concerted effort.  The status quo currently in power know that.  As I previously stated, “absolute power corrupts absolutely” and there is a reasoning behind why we should apply it to today’s elitist hierarchy and the money machine that controls it.  Money and its ability to control is only a perception; however, the end result of controlling all Americans is the reality.

The Constitution was created by those seeking to preserve your liberty … 

“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time

with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” – Thomas Jefferson 

“The militia is our ultimate safety. We can have no security without it.

The great object is that every man be armed.” – Patrick Henry

Relentless thoughts must be pursued to their fullest ends.  If there is enough belief in the Constitution and what it stands for, then We the People are in the right, when our own government is in the wrong.  Whatever the intentions, let them be fully exposed so all of America can evaluate, scrutinize and defend the honor of what the Constitution stands for.

The Constitution of the United States

Having said this, I bring you the Top 10 stratagems for survival in today’s times:

  1. Consider not only purchasing a weapon (with sufficient ammo) but also taking concealed carry training.
  2. Look into emergency food supplies, despite the fact there are backorders within all the supply chains (at least put an order in).
  3. Think about solar powered generators for sustenance and invest in a portable system (with EMP bag).
  4. Bolster your home’s first aid supplies, especially when it comes to surgical materials, blood pressure cuffs, thermometers and DIY manuals.
  5. Start seeking out rural survival retreat locations in states that are tolerant of gun ownership, especially if you live in a major city or an area prone to violence.
  6. Use the Internet for something useful, like researching PDF-type material for various types of survival training manuals.
  7. Research multiple avenues of reinventing yourself to make a product or service that can be used for barter in the event of a cashless society.
  8. If you have vacant land, there are options to consider … food, water, shelter … and how you’re going to access them.
  9. Prepare to disengage your interests in social media platforms where your activities can be traced by unwanted entities (if you can adjust to going completely off-grid, you stand less of a chance of being tracked).
  10. Make sure you are registered to vote if you have the ability to do so and make sure no one else is using your address to re-register themselves to vote twice.

NOVEMBER 2020 COULD BE MORE THAN A GAME CHANGER … 

Prepare for and be aware of these possible scenarios that could or be expected to occur:

  1. Uptick in social media political scams for donations and hateful protests against one faction or another.
  2. More social media and television attacks vis a vie negative political ads by each candidate, post-debate.
  3. Widespread civil unrest in the streets in major cities, including but not limited to continued destruction of property.
  4. More random law enforcement-related shootings, by cops and at cops.
  5. Ramped up scare tactics about new outbreaks of COVID-19, pre-vaccine (in order to increase demand for the vaccine, which isn’t guaranteed to work).
  6. Increased socialist platform diatribe, both in the media and in social media.
  7. Expect adjustments to the sovereign immunity for cops.

Because the November 2020 elections are so uncertain, there could be an attempted coup of sorts in the U.S. if the loser doesn’t concede to the winner.  This could ultimately lead to more civil unrest, which could spread into the suburban and urban areas of America.  This election is different because the platforms of corporatism versus socialism are more predominant than ever in trying to sway public opinion.  Thus, more research is demanded into each realm to see which one you’d rather support.  Understand that corporatism (as a whole) brings more jobs with each step to reward business for creating them.  Socialism on the other hand taxes businesses to the point where they have to cut jobs, many of which are high-paying, thanks to labor unions driving wages up (not all unions are bad however, some of them actually do great things).

Do I sound like I’m preaching doom and gloom here?

Better safe than sorry as I always say (not to be paranoid, but rather to be prepared).

AMERICAN FORECLOSURES … DIVIDED WE FALL

(OP-ED) — The author of this post puts forward this information for the purposes of education and enlightenment and not for the purposes of rendering legal advice. 

THE MORATORIUMS ARE GOING AWAY SOON

If you’re a homeowner who has been affected by the coronavirus to the point of losing a paycheck and not being able to make your mortgage payments, you’ve probably been living off your credit cards during this “lockdown”.  The anticipation that you’re going to start hearing from your mortgage loan servicers (if you haven’t already) is growing to the point of panic and anxiety knowing that you’ve been given a reprieve for so long but that point in time is coming to an end and you’re going to have to face the music.

I for one do not believe that the 2-month lockdown warrants the same type of foreclosure activity that took place between 2009-2014 as a result of the 2008 financial crisis, despite the fact that the nation’s economy has suffered a serious upset by the pandemic.  The difference between what happened in March and what happened in 2008 was that the secondary markets were quietly imploding and didn’t hit us until the actual collapse of Bear-Stearns and Lehman Brothers started a tidal wave of Chapter 11 filings in the subprime lending markets.  We saw this one developing and began to prepare (for some, like me, you saw it coming in February and started accumulating whatever cash and supplies you needed), which included but was not limited to, hoarding toilet paper and hand sanitizer.  The fact the pandemic was hidden from most Americans for better than two weeks only shortened our preparation time.

Many Americans ignored the warnings of the viral component’s ability to spread … hence, Spring Break.  This was only one of the catalysts.  Two separate cruise ships on both coasts (San Francisco and Miami) were already affecting dozens of passengers, one of which I knew from a non-profit organization that she and I were both a part of.  She was dead upon arrival into the Port of Miami.  When it’s someone you know, it hits home rather quickly, sometimes too close to home.  But at least we knew the ships (full of sick and dying) were headed straight at us.  We at least had time to prepare and mobilize our resources.  This isn’t something that was intended to cripple our morality.  The virus seemed intentionally let loose to cripple our economy and thus, our modes of survival.

POLITICS ASIDE?  NOT!

This entire crisis has been manipulated by the medical community, including but not limited to, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Dr. Anthony Fauci, the President’s adviser.  Be mindful of the fact that Dr. Fauci (who I equate to Dr. Josef Mengele of Nazi fame) has served previous administrations, both Republican and Democrat (before you start raring up your emotions at little old Libertarian me for daring to question what’s really going on here).

Both the Republican and Democrats have taken advantage of this crisis.  Both sides of the aisle debated and passed legislation to benefit their own constituents.  Both sides of the aisle debated and passed legislation to benefit Wall Street.  Both sides of the aisle debated and passed legislation that gave most of us (but not all) some sort of stipend (dole) as a means of attempting to support those who the government considers “law-abiding taxpayers”.  Both sides of the aisle used the pandemic as a means of either gaining political control or upending the other side’s political control.  Don’t you just hate it when that happens?  And over 100,000 people are dead in America just so both sides can point fingers at each other with accusatory tones.  But also remember, Fauci has told this President (as well as past Presidents) what might happen with the pandemic and what protocols should be followed, whether the protocols (or the informational data used to formulate those protocols) was accurate or not.

Both sides of the aisle have not come up with a remedy (other than a moratorium on government-backed GSE foreclosures) to stop the tsunami of foreclosures that we could have faced if the moratoriums were not extended by the State’s governors to include all mortgage loans, which included evictions.  Now we’re faced with our own set of politics … a national network of mortgage loan servicers, collectively using “the system” to play out unfortunate scenarios against afflicted Americans who still haven’t formulated a PLAN B as to how they intend on dealing with the aftermath of this “planned economic strike” against America.  Everyone of course is pointing a finger at the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and blaming that entity for our troubles when in fact, the troubles were seriously exacerbated by our very own government in the way it doled out the money.  Again, the trickle down effect impressed not one taxpayer to the point that they thought someone did them a serious favor.

In other words, how long did that $1,200 check last each person already financially affected by the loss of employment.  When the moratorium gets lifted, those who are still struggling could become the first casualties of the second foreclosure epidemic.  I don’t consider any of this at all funny.  In fact, it’s disgusting that America has allowed itself to become embroiled in public debate over police brutality vis a vis the media, who hates Trump and wants your country to be turned into a socialistic state. The media has become so left-liberal it’s sickening.  You can’t turn on any channel and get the truth because politics has (and is) playing itself out at every turn of events.

DEFUNDING POLICE DEPARTMENTS?  DOES YOUR PERSONAL SAFETY MATTER?

Both George Floyd and Rayshard Brooks had much in common.  Both were black.  Both were convicted felons.  Both served time in prison.  Both were in the wrong place at the wrong time.  Both allegedly were involved in the commission of a crime (Floyd for passing a counterfeit $20 and Brooks for being intoxicated at the wheel of a running motor vehicle) for which they were placed under arrest.  Both died at the hands of police officers who were white.  Both were exemplified as poster children by the left and the media.  Both gave anarchists impetus to riot and commit destructive acts.

Now that you see the facts, do the cops need sensitivity training or does the public need sensitivity training?  After all, a young, white woman was captured on video burning down the Atlanta Wendy’s restaurant where Brooks was fatally shot during the riots that followed.  While it is relatively easy for white people to all of a sudden think a black person set fire to the restaurant, the video shows otherwise.  The video shows that there are people with no morals living among us that are out to prove a point … that anarchy is acceptable as a means of protest … even if it involves arson, which is a felony.  The other part of the problem, which my wife was quick to point out over coffee this morning, was that folks stood by videoing the act with their cameras so they could post it on social media because everyone is into sensationalism now.  So, does committing a crime for the purposes of sensationalism make it okay?  Why didn’t the people doing the video taping with their cameras stop the woman from burning down the Wendy’s?   Where did our morals go?   And the left want to defund police departments over the acts of bad actors?  I think not.

The U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights provide for the general welfare and safety of ALL Americans, not just the Black Lives Matter folks.  The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution grants ALL of us a certain number of freedoms (self-expression and the right to assemble peaceably).  However, your liberty and freedoms ends where another person’s liberty and freedom begins.  When you violate the Constitution by committing a crime outside of the boundaries of what the Amendments are designed to protect, then the system has measures in place to deal with the offender.  The system did not afford those protections to Floyd and Brooks because of the actions of a few white officers.  Whether they will be granted immunity is anyone’s guess.  According to a friend of mine in Texas (who is a police officer), there are some who you cannot give a gun and a badge to because they’re more dangerous than those they were sworn to protect.

Many police departments are not funded well enough.  As my co-host on City Spotlight – Special Edition (on kdwradio.com), R. J. Malloy stated, “This isn’t Andy of Mayberry.”  There isn’t an issue over the fact Deputy Barney Fife only had one bullet in his gun, other than for his own well-being in not shooting himself in the foot. The issue is what protection Sheriff Andy or Barney Fife could (or would) do in the event the citizens of Mayberry’s personal protections were in jeopardy.  What police departments don’t need is tanks and military style Humvees.  What police departments do need is officers who are equipped with the means to protect and serve those citizens they were hired to protect and serve.  Anything short of that would represent a disservice to their respective communities, sensitivity training or not.

And here I thought the parental saying (from way back when) of, “Two wrongs don’t make a right” still applied to today’s community standards.  When the police can’t respond, or refuse to respond (as what is happening in Atlanta right now), sometimes referred to as the “Blue Flu” (officers calling in sick as a means of protest), then the level of personal protections afforded under the Constitution are eroded.  This gives way to those without moral scruples to commit further acts of violence.  I sometimes believe these people do these heinous things because they have a bone to pick with authority.  I think it would be best that police would be stripped of their qualified immunity from prosecution if they went “past the point of no return” once the person arrested was restrained or incapacitated, armed or not.  In Brooks’ case, the cop was videotaped kicking Brooks after putting two slugs in his back and was quoted as saying, “I got him!”   What’s that’s supposed to mean coming from a white cop with a bald head (skinhead)?

Despite the fact we can all agree that prejudice has no place in a decent, moral society, it still exists and is being driven deeper and deeper into the hearts and minds of those who feel they are being oppressed.  That includes those who feel that they’re being deprived of their Constitutional guarantees to safety and security.  Police officers should be held to a higher standard, especially when it comes to those they swore an oath to protect and serve, despite the color of their skin.  The bigger problem here is that with society melding into multiculturalism, it will soon devolve.  I predict there will be another spate of White Flight as American society continues to devolve.

UPHOLDING RIGHTS INCLUDES THOSE FACING FORECLOSURE

When it comes to foreclosure, we all have to have a game plan.  In 2008, when the financial markets collapsed under the weight of the failing securities debacle, it set the stage for multiple infractions against homeowners.  The biggest divisive scheme was the creation of notes out of thin air (the notes that had been shredded after they were uploaded as originals into the MERS System®).  It is common knowledge, as well as arguendo amongst those in the mortgage world, that the notes, along with their accompanying mortgages and deeds of trust, were shredded because paper proof of a contract was replaced by an electronic system of record keeping.  Many believe the originals were archived, yet there is no finite evidentiary proof of that.  What shows up in courts across the country in foreclosure cases I’ve reviewed are “copies” of original mortgages and deeds of trust that were pulled down off of the MERS System®, as well as the notes that the mortgage loan servicers now claim to be “originals”.

What we are seeing (and I talking about the collective group of investigative analysts looking into this documentation) is copies of notes being manufactured from copies pulled from the MERS System® and doctored up to look like originals.  The banks and their servicers and document manufacturing plants have gotten very good at reproducing notes to look like originals.  This is why certain individuals, knowing their notes might be shredded, filled in the “o’s” with ink on their promissory nOtes. Anyone reproducing a copy of a note trying to make it look like an original would have missed the filling in of the “O” in “nOte” which would be a dead giveaway of document manufacturing.  However, 99.9% of borrowers did NOT do that at the closing table.  The gullible are always the first to fall.  The gullible wanted the keys to the house, no matter what eventual price they would pay later.  The gullible constituted some 97-98% of  those who vacated their homes as soon as they were served with foreclosure documents because they had no Plan B and were never prepared to have to deal with foreclosure.

I was just speaking with an investor this morning who told me that the average homeowner or attorney could keep a foreclosure at bay for at least two years and keep either the homeowner in the home or rental income flowing for two more years.  So how’s that possible?  I discussed that in my video post on the Clouded Titles YouTube Channel.

In the physical realm, you have certain rights to life, liberty and property.  When you enter into a contract with a mortgage lender, you give up some of those rights in exchange for having a lien placed against your property by and through a security instrument, which is either in the form of a mortgage or deed of trust (Security Deed in Georgia; Installment Contract in Montana).  Most people do not realize that the balance of those rights allow you to examine and litigate certain inequities that may exist as the result of the foreclosure; however, most Americans are just too quick to give up and run away, rather than stand and fight. This is what happened after the 2008 financial collapse.  In today’s times however, abandoning your property puts you at higher risk because of the potential of coming into contact with the dreaded “virus” and succumbing to it.  If I told you that you could stay in your home for two more years just by taking a stand against the mortgage loan servicer, wouldn’t you be the least bit interested?

This is why I’m doing an online Foreclosure Defense 101 Workshop at the end of July.  It may be my last “due diligence” effort at attempting to help those afflicted by foreclosure.  I have made numerous attempts in the past to consult with attorneys behind the scenes and at trial, some successfully; however, the number of folks who wish to take what I have to say seriously aren’t listening.  So, you might ask yourself … why is Krieger even bothering to help these people save themselves from financial ruin?

I take the attitude that “might does not necessarily make right” … and just because you’re a well-funded mortgage loan servicer, that does not take away the homeowner’s right to protest against the foreclosure, both in and out of court.  I’m going to use this opportunity to bring attorneys into the mix to discuss Rules of Evidence and Rules of Civil Procedure.  These two areas are where homeowners are easily defeated.  It is in these two areas that homeowners can stay in their homes for 2 years or longer.

Your rights to litigate are not restricted by the contract you signed at the closing table.  You have every right to initiate a suit and defend a suit (depending on which state you live in and depending on which process you’re engaging in … judicial or non-judicial).  By taking simple, inexpensive steps, you can create a Plan B for yourselves by taking the initiative to respond or act.  It is your decision to learn the tactics or not learn the tactics.  My suggestions in this online workshop are based on research, but I’m going to let a couple of legal professionals share some of these strategies with you in the 4-hour block we’re devoting to educating you on foreclosure defense.  We will be recording this session for purchase and playback on the Clouded Titles website; however, the difference between attending the online live event and downloading a recorded event is that you don’t get to ask questions and get answers right away.  You have every opportunity to fight back and the financial risk to you attending this event online is low compared to the information you are given.  I told you in my blog post about the two-year window that attorneys can carve out for you so you can make alternative plans. As part of the webinar, I’m going to share written details with you in PDF format that will help guide you through your educational “learning curve” about how attorneys can drag a foreclosure case on for more than two years!

Again, you are known by the paths you take and the choices you make whether a homeowner or an investor.  Stay tuned for more posts on this.
