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.

FIGHTING TWO BATTLES AT ONCE

(OP-ED) — The opinions expressed in this post are those of the author and do not reflect the opinions or affirmations of the political hierarchy in America.  These opinions are offered for the purposes of self-preservation in a time of dual crises in America. 

POSTULATING REALITY

America is in crisis mode.

I would say that the statement I just made is correct given that we have two separate battles we are fighting.  One to save ourselves and one to save our homes.

I think we can all agree that the combination of circumstances could be timed to coincide with each other (the coronavirus pandemic and the execution of George Floyd) as catalysts for what is to come (a spike in COVID-19 cases and the upstart of foreclosures) because (with the help of the liberal media) most of America is “not awake” and is being conditioned for slaughter (if not at the hands of the rioting, then at the hands of the vaccine) and potential homelessness (or direct conflict on America’s streets).

Given what we know about the scientific mapping of xenotropic murine retroviruses (XMRV’s) and the medias ignorance of them, Americans are in the middle of a war for their votes as well as their mindsets.  Most of the folks on this blog have read up on the research conducted by Dr. Judy A. Mikovits (who I would like to interview on my radio show, specifically about the science … to have her explain all of this in layman’s terms) which she claims was covered up by Dr. Anthony Fauci and the National Institutes of Health (the NIH) and others, who rewrote and published false data in order to cover up government liability for allowing lethal vaccines and viruses to be put out into America and the world.  Several scientists who attempt to go public with information that could be considered vital to saving lives ended up dead.  This is documented fact.  In her book, Plague Of Corruption, Dr. Mikovits gives the names of those individuals and briefly outlines their tragic endings, most of which were ruled suicides (e.g. Vince Foster).  There is no conspiracy when it can be documented that: (a.) the dead individuals were scientists; (b.) the dead individuals were involved in government research; and (c.) the individuals are dead in tandem with their data being whitewashed by government-funded agencies.

THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG

This scenario goes deeper than just the idea that a vaccine (the savior of the world) is being synthesized in at least 8 different laboratories (according to Fauci himself; using lab rats and former COVID-19 patients) with the intended use of being injected into unsuspecting “victims”, all of whom should consider themselves “guinea pigs of science”.  As Dr. Fauci admitted to the Senate (regarding the vaccine and its development) in contradictory vernacular … “The NIH trials moved very quickly … on January 10th the sequence was known.”

Wait a minute.

If the World Health Organization (WHO) knew on December 31, 2019 that the coronavirus was wreaking havoc on the Hubei province in China, then, in order to conduct trials to have a result by January 1oth (as to an RNA sequence of the retrovirus), then Fauci and others either had previously known of a breach of safety protocols at the Wuhan Institute of Virology and had actual samples provided to them to begin sequence testing on.  Remember the timeline.  WHO did not announce this pandemic until January 15, 2020 and only a small percentage of America paid any attention (“It can’t happen here.”).  Vaccine development, according to Fauci’s own testimony to the United States Senate, began on January 14th (2020) … the day BEFORE the World Health Organization announced an active worldwide pandemic.

How could Fauci and the NIH know what they were looking for unless they had access to the virus?  We have to ask why the Wuhan and Fort Detrick, Maryland bio-labs shut down?  Who gave Fauci and the NIH the money to fund the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s experiments with coronaviruses?   What did either facility have to gain by culturing these viruses in a lab?   Why did it all of a sudden become necessary to cause a major distraction in America, following bailouts of the “too-big-to-fails” as well as the minuscule payouts to American taxpayers to create a sense of false security (like our government was actually doing something to jump start the economy)?

The major distraction I’m talking about here is the purposeful videotaping and dissemination of the execution of George Floyd at the hands of four Minneapolis Police Officers.

At the point I saw the video, I’m asking myself (and you may have been too):

  1. Why did the person doing the videoing of the execution not tell others to call 9-1-1 and report what they were witnessing to tell dispatchers to send supervisory personnel to the scene to stop the execution?
  2. What purpose did the cop who had his knee on Floyd’s neck have for staring blindly into the camera as if he were purposefully making Floyd’s death look like a white-on-black crime of police brutality?
  3. Why didn’t the bystanders to the entire event jump the cops and pull them away from Floyd and beat the holy shit out of the cops and save Floyd’s life?

These bystanders saw one of their own in trouble and did nothing to help George Floyd.  And now they scream “Black Lives Matter” while infiltrators penetrated their ranks and caused riots, burning and looting of stores and homes, while beating and killing store owners and police/security who were trying to defend others and their property?

I don’t get it.  Well … maybe I do, but are you ready for the realization that all of this was orchestrated to draw your attention away from the real caper?

The vaccine … and the tainting of the upcoming elections to steer America further into socialism.

Fauci told the Senate that the vaccines would be ready by late winter, yet it has already been announced that over a million vaccines are ready to be administered.

Something isn’t right here. 

Fauci claims that America is “Chairman” of the vaccine program and he further admitted that a vaccine will be produced to inoculate the world, not knowing of the consequences (the risk) of whether the vaccine will actually work.

“I must warn that there is also the possibility of negative consequences … that certain vaccines can actually enhance the negative effect of the infection.  The big unknown is efficacy.”  Fauci told the Senate.  Efficacy has to do with the success of a desired result.  What might that result be if the consequences could be negative?  DEATH?

Fauci went on to admit that all of the research has been accelerated through public and private partnerships (with Big Pharma, the bunch that has the biggest lobbying effort in Congress) to speed up the research and production of the vaccine so that billions of doses can be sent out worldwide … this is like a rush to judgment in my book.

Until they start inoculating the willing souls, we won’t know whether they’re actually going to be giving Americans and citizens of the world a vaccine that could infect human tissues with retroviruses that will kill over half of those injected within a short period of time.  Imagine only having half the world’s population to contend with?

Would it be easier to deal with and control many billions of people?  Or would it be easier to deal with and control millions of people?  Would lower numbers make it logically easier to control the population of any given country?

THE SECOND “WAR ON AMERICA”

And as states allow the administration of the vaccine, not knowing of the intended or unintended consequences of its administration, the folks who were out protesting (and rioting and looting and burning) have now potentially put themselves in harm’s way, not just from the vaccine itself (which might deliberately give them a full-blown case of COVID-19 which will kill them), but leave their families destitute … and what happens when you let your guard down?

The banks strike!

The next major land grab may play out this way.  And if you have been indoctrinated by “false flag programming” (media conditioning), you will not be of sound mind to wage war against the mortgage loan servicers coming to take your home. Look at it this way … throughout history … who makes money off of wars?

The banks do!

Throughout history it has been shown that the major banking institutions have funded both sides of actual conflicts (wars).  And those who have played into the Black Lives Matter are the first ones to start screaming to the government for help (nanny state tactics aside) in saving their homes because the families living within them have been decimated by a vaccine.

The one thing that Dr. Mikovits made note of in her book, which I paid particular attention to, is for those wishing to research patterns of medical crises as the result of a vaccine look into what vaccination programs were being administered and where, prior to the outbreak of the medical crises in that given area.  This should tell you what to expect in different parts of America or parts of the world (like Africa … where Black Lives Matter?) where administrations past have conducted vaccination programs, resulting in spikes in disease and death.

Waging war against a bank in the middle of a crisis like this (constant fear of home invasions by looters and rioters and other forms of civil unrest) will have people on edge, which is the perfect scenario for the banks, their servicers, the trustees and their lawyers to take advantage of an already-heightened “fear factor”.

How will people of color (especially those who participated in the protests) explain to police that crimes are being committed against them and to investigate those financial crimes, after telling police to go fuck themselves and protest that departments should be defunded?  How do these people expect “help” from the very same law enforcement in investigating whether intentional identity theft and misuse of their personal information is being used to foreclose on their homes after they had the unmitigated gall to exact violent and radical behavior against law enforcement agencies across America?  I find all of this counterproductive.  It’s just that those who were part of the problem now expect law enforcement to be part of the solution.  I really get that.  It’s not happening for them.

My prediction here is that those Blue States who are in financial trouble and whose populations demonstrated the highest levels of radical and violent behavior will suffer the greatest number of foreclosures in this upcoming second attack by the banks because of their own demented behaviors in promoting civil unrest, disorder, disobedience, destruction of property (both public and private), violence resulting in death, all the while making a mockery of America’s failed justice system.  And you expect the courts to be on your side when you have to go into their tribunals and wage war to save your home?   The judges watch TV too.  The judges are (I would suppose) equally perturbed at the BLM campaigns being waged across America.  I believe that judges are going to be less sympathetic to homeowners because of all of this protesting and rioting, which is why I made the foregoing assertion.  We’ll see how much Black Lives Matter when the foreclosure crisis kicks in again.

Instead of becoming united ahead of a major election, Americans have become disjointed, which is what many Democratic politicians believe will work in their favor come election time.  Could we assert that people who died of COVID-19 are still registered to vote?  Could their vote still be cast for Democratic politicians even after they’re six feet under?  You bet.  This is what is driving America closer and closer to socialism.  One of the key fundamentals of socialism is wealth distribution.  Wealth distribution promotes laziness (free handouts).  Laziness brings with it a false sense of security.  Having a false sense of security makes one less resistant to the element of surprise.  Having the power to swoop down and take over neighborhoods by and through military force works even better when no one is expecting it.

Socialism begats communism.  Why do you think Russia is officially referred to as the Union of  Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR)?  And now we have China to worry about (potential Cold War because of the dispersion of the coronavirus) as well as our own government (disjointed politicians who are being lobbied by Big Pharma to destroy us because our very own taxpayers dollars with funneled through the NIH to Wuhan, China).  Not the greatest scenario for trying to defend your home, eh?

WAGING WAR AGAINST THE SERVICERS

As I close out this segment, remember that these entities have been paying the REMIC trusts’ investors advance payments while the corona-crisis was ongoing.  When the moratoriums are lifted, you can bet they’ll be knocking on your door asking to be reimbursed in some way, shape or form.  As a result of the advance payments, you can expect the following to occur:

  1. If you’re current in your mortgage payments, you won’t need a forbearance or a loan mod, which is why the second wave of REFINANCE YOUR HOME campaigns are going to start up in the fall (watch for it … they want to make sure every home loan is securitized … making it easier to steal in case you default);
  2. If you’re only a month or two behind on your mortgage payments because you’ve been out of work for a short period of time but expect to resume employment, you can expect to be offered a forbearance;
  3. If you are several months behind, you are more than likely going to be offered a loan modification, which promotes the use of a trial period of payments (so the servicer can reimburse itself for all of the advance payments it made on your behalf); and
  4. If you have been way behind in your payments, you’re likely to face immediate retribution by the servicers, as taking and selling your home, whether by stealth or through the use of feloniously-recorded documents, will play out as quickly as the servicers can get the “legal ball to roll downhill”.

Given the atmosphere in America, humility in front of the judge may not cut it.  You’re going to have to solidly prove that your rights are being violated or that illicit behavior is being committed against you.  With the coronavirus causing the courts to conduct hearings electronically (what society wants you to believe is the “new normal”), your chances are even less of getting a fair shake because that judge doesn’t have to face you (in person) or your wrath after you’ve been screwed in electronic court.  The panic created throughout the court system will work to the disadvantage of those who are unprepared for it.  This means your pleadings are going to have to be well-thought out, on point and divisive.  There will be no room for error because of intolerance created through civil unrest in America.
