Chicago Sheriff Says No To Enforcing Foreclosures
Published: Tuesday, 19 Oct 2010 | 2:48 PM ET

CHICAGO - Two of the largest U.S. mortgage servicers have said they will resume home foreclosures, but a big-city Sheriff has news for them: he won't enforce their foreclosure evictions.

The Sheriff for Cook County, Illinois, which includes the city of Chicago, said on Tuesday he will not enforce foreclosure evictions for Bank of America Corp, JPMorgan Chase and Co. and GMAC Mortgage/Ally Financial until they prove those foreclosures were handled "properly and legally."

Bank of America, the largest U.S. mortgage servicer, and GMAC, on Monday both announced rollbacks from their foreclosure moratoriums.

The announcement by Cook County Sheriff Thomas Dart comes after weeks of damaging accusations of shoddy paperwork that may have caused some people to be illegally evicted from their homes.

"I can't possibly be expected to evict people from their homes when the banks themselves can't say for sure everything was done properly," Dart said in the statement.

"I need some kind of assurance that we aren't evicting families based on fraudulent behavior by the banks. Until that happens, I can't in good conscience keep carrying out evictions involving these banks," he added.

Bank of America, GMAC and JPMorgan Chase along with their subsidiaries, make up around a third of the roughly 3,700 eviction orders filed at the Cook County sheriff's office, the statement said.

The foreclosure controversy, which has drawn public outrage and sparked government probes, has threatened bank earnings and the health of the fragile housing market.

Two years ago Dart refused to carry out foreclosure evictions in cases where renters apparently had not been informed that they were about to be evicted from buildings in which their landlords had fallen into foreclosure.

Some 20 Cook County sheriff's deputies execute around 14,000 foreclosure and rental eviction notices every year

(COLUMBUS, Ohio)— In response to Wells Fargo's statement acknowledging that it "made mistakes" and that affidavits in 55,000 foreclosures filed by the bank did not "adhere" to the law, Ohio Attorney General Richard Cordray offers the following statement:

"The big mortgage servicers and financial firms continue to demonstrate their belief that they do not need to play by the same rules as everyone else who uses our court system.

The suggestion by Wells Fargo and its colleagues at several other national firms that they can cure fraudulent testimony by simply refiling new affidavits and continuing to proceed toward foreclosures shows they do not recognize the seriousness of the problem they have created.

There is no simple 'do-over' for false testimony that will be likely to avoid sanctions and penalties imposed by the courts.

Their brazen efforts to minimize their financial exposure by sweeping these problems under the rug are an insult to the justice system in this country.

Constitutional Sheriff Tony DeMeo

Tony DeMeo, Sheriff of Nye County, Nevada, explains that he is a Constitutional Sheriff.

In this 3-part video interview with Tony DeMeo, Sheriff of Nye County, Nevada, he explains that he is a Constitutional Sheriff and that authority for public office holders is derived from the people. He tells the story about how he used the Constitution as his foundation in the saga of Nye County rancher Wayne Hage’s disputes over encroachments by the federal government.

Sheriff DeMeo studied the Constitution in New Jersey when he was a police officer, as it was a requirement for promotion. He said that because nearly every encounter with the public involves some aspect of respecting the Constitution, he has added additional study of the Constitution to the Nye County Sheriffs training academy curriculum that was in place before he took office.

Additionally, he has given his deputies decision making authority based on the Constitution, the Nevada State Constitution, local laws and policy. They are empowered with the right to refuse unlawful orders. Sheriff DeMeo issues Empowerment Cards to his deputies which set policy for deputies when they are in contact with the public and allows deputies to make field decisions as long as they do not violate the respective Constitutions, State Law and Policies.

So do the States have to take the bullying of the federal government? Not hardly! The States do not have to take or support or pay for Obamacare or anything else from Washington DC. The States are not subject to federal direction. They are sovereign and “The Constitution protects us from our own best intentions.”(Mack/Printz) Which means the States can tell national healthcare proposals or laws to take a flying leap off the Washington monument. We are not subject to federal direction!


In the final order pursuant to the Mack/Printz ruling Scalia warned,“The federal government may neither, issue directives requiring the States to address particular problems, nor command the States’ officers, or those of their political subdivisions, to administer or enforce a federal regulatory program. Such commands are fundamentally incompatible with our constitutional system of dual sovereignty.” It is rather obvious that nationalized healthcare definitely qualifies as a “federal regulatory program.”

Righting “wrongs” based on wrong interpretations of “rights”

States and County sheriffs are going to need to take the militia clauses of the Constitution seriously.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County (Phoenix), Arizona has a posse of 3,000. If Arizona were to create a State Guard and encourage sheriffs to beef up their posse
strength to levels analogous to Maricopa County, and if other states were to follow suit, the federal government would be less inclined to assume that there are no limits to their powers.

Such an outcome will not come about until we understand that there is no conflict between the Tenth and the Fourteenth Amendments, and that rights come from God, not from government. Government-made
“rights” are the “wrong” rights.

To remind the County Sheriff's, you are in charge and have the power in your County. Not these flea bag, carpet-bagging, Constitution violating Feds. Remember that national police force that Barry Soetoro (aka B.H. Obama) wanted that will be just as big, just as powerful, just as well armed as the military? Well this is it!

Sheriff's protect your citizens from these goon squads, arrest or send them packin' back to D.C.

Follow the U.S. Constitution.
Their (goon squad-Federal Government) actions will violate our INALIENABLE Bill of Rights of at least the 4th, 5th, 6th, 8th, 9th, and 10th Amendments.

"The Secret The TSA Doesn’t Want You To Know

Paul Joseph Watson
Infowars.com
December 2, 2010

While many Americans think they can skip being sexually molested at the hands of the TSA by avoiding airports, Big Sis has been quietly preparing the groundwork for the total takeover of all public transport and highways by federal government goon squads.

Local police, TSA and Homeland Security agents are already implementing airport-style security measures at bus and train stations, including earlier this year in Tampa, where bomb-sniffing dogs and grope downs were used to check passengers.

As we reported earlier this year, as the national outrage surrounding the TSA’s use of naked body scanners at airports simmered, the feds had already purchased hundreds of x-ray scanners mounted in vans that were being used to randomly scan vehicles, passengers and homes in complete violation of the 4th amendment and with wanton disregard for any health consequences.

Chemtrail, Vaccines and the Financial Trigger Point-Wall Street Insider

December 20, 2010
By Steve Quayle

Years ago, when I first broke the "chemtrail story", it was my primary concern that the nefarious and sinister purpose of the chemtrail spraying would be overlooked or ignored by the mainstream-vomit-brokering media! My concerns were echoed in dozens of radio interviews with so many different specialists that I stated publicly that 'I am convinced that the "death spray" in the chemtrails is a primary attack upon our immune systems and the placing of pathogenic and mutagenic components in the spray formulations for probable activation through vaccination mandates or secondary activation spray formulations in the future.

The spraying, which placed bio-bombs in the sprayed population's bodies, resulted in the sprayed body becoming a primary chemical repository. I further went on to describe how mandatory vaccination protocols would be initiated resulting in the death of hundreds of million people. Yesterday, I received information from an insider in the world's largest Investment banking firm. Quote, "I have created a separate account for the purpose of contacting you. I appreciate the conversation we had.”

Here's an overview of what we discussed.

“The vaccinations that are currently being distributed in the United States for the purpose of the swine flu or the bird flu is not a vaccination, but rather the introduction of a protein that is 1 component of the virus. It works very much the same way as the AIDs virus does in that its primary function is to lay dormant until the activating component is introduced via biological " terrorist" attack for example. So the people who are accepting the vaccinations for these viruses are, in effect, accepting the protein which is the actual infection this virus is to lay dormant until the activating component or protein stranded DNA is introduced into the body.

So here's a bigger picture. One day there is a biological terrorist attack on the United States immediately thereafter there are confirmed reports of people with horrible flu symptoms from all over the place. This is precisely the reasoning behind the government's attempt to make flu vaccinations or any vaccination declared mandatory by the CDC law. The original technical term for the AIDs virus is HTLV3. Anyone on a Green List...

People on the Blue List will be deemed cautionary. People on the Red List are to be killed on site, killed in the front of their homes and disposed of later."

The man who originally broke the existence of the Red, Blue and Green Lists to me was a very prominent employee of the EPA...

My contact then went on to talk about the financial meltdown. He stated that "the major financial event will occur in this the year of transition. And after this event there will be 14 days to prepare" (sound familiar)? My source stated that anytime between January and April "it will become reality". He also said that they cannot turn it around, nor do they want to! The most amazing statement he made was that the foreign hunter killer teams have been given the OK to ransack, pillage and plunder the homes of all Red List "enemies of the state".

This is exactly what Hawk was told in a conversation that was picked up in the clear by an astute amateur radio operator, who heard the non-US General say, "The stupid Americans don't even have a clue of what we are going to do to them, and snickered about the spoils that they are going to take."

Here's how it will play out. You are ordered to a camp under a national emergency and put on a bus or train while mass evacuations are underway, the sanctioned looters and plunderers go through the homes of the evacuees with a free ticket from prosecution. All sheriff's deputies and local law enforcement will be ordered to turn in their weapons.

THE LAW IS AN ASS


By Sheriff Jim R. Schwiesow, Ret.
December 22, 2010
NewsWithViews.com

"If the law supposes that,’ the law is an ass, an idiot.' Thus, the law is stupid.”-Mr. Bumble of the Charles Dickens' novel Oliver Twist

HOSTAGE TO THE LAW

“And he said, Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers”-Luke 11.46

It is important to understand that the U.S. Code contains many thousands - a multitude - of statutory laws. Arguably one cannot get through a day without violating one or more of these statutes; they are all inclusive, intrusive, and invasive to every segment of our day to day existence. They are a virtual web of entrapment and they have been specifically drafted to that purpose. These statutes are a practical catch-all that enables the control of the people by the federal government through its increasingly oppressive and tyrannical enforcement agencies. The U.S. Code as it exists is an enemy of justice and it separates the people from their God-given and inherent liberties.

Those who insist that statutory law is not binding because it was enacted without the consent of the people are barking up the wrong tree. In the secular subjective minds of the federal judiciary and the federal government the statutes of the U.S. Code are binding and enforceable. Some people are hard learners and those who shun the spiritual path just do not understand that they will never of their own ability bring about a return of Constitutional government, common law, or any of the other tenants or personal freedoms of a Constitutional Republic.

Those who think that these laws, many of them blatantly unconstitutional, are not binding upon them and that they are not subject to a totalitarian state are full of it, baloney that is...the federal prisons contain many who thought likewise and they will languish in those prisons until the sentences expire on their transgressions of certain capricious and arbitrary statutory laws that were imposed by a system that now has complete autonomy over the people. Who will risk the wrath of the agents of a totalistic system to come to their aid or defense? The answer is no one. To put it bluntly we are screwed, and the only consolation and comfort I have is the fact that these abominable degenerates will stand in the blinding presence of the Lord one day and there will be a great wailing and gnashing of teeth in the face of His judgment.

TOO LITTLE TOO LATE

I do admire and respect those who have fought an almost continual battle to bring this nation back to its roots as a Constitutional Republic. I am afraid that those so disposed are few and the few are hostage to the will of the majority - a now completely deceived, ignorant, and indolent people - that have eschewed personal liberty in exchange for federal and state entitlements (unearned government handouts).

We once were, but are no more, a spiritual people. The Apostle Paul predicted that we would be in these days a people having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof. Indeed we are a nation of counterfeit Christians. Satan and his legions of demonic angels have been released from God's bounds and given the agency to work their will upon a morally filthy people.

When I entered the law enforcement profession we, in my state, were functioning under the last vestiges of Common Law. Embedded in our laws were props for upholding the moral principles of God's Commandments. The lower courts were still occupied by individuals that were selected by the people. Our cases were most often initiated by a petition - or filing - with an elected Justice of the Peace, and the Sheriffs' were sovereign...

The County Sheriff America's Last Hope

Sheriff Mack's latest book covers decades of research to prove once and for all that the sheriffs in this country are indeed the ultimate law authority in their respective jurisdictions.

The sheriff absolutely has the power and responsiblity to defend his citizens against all enemies, including those from our own Federal Government.

History, case law, common law and common sense all show clear evidence that the sheriff is the people's protector in all issues of injustice and is responsible for keeping the peace in all matters. He is the last line of defense for his constituents; he is America's last hope to regain our forgotten freedom.

This short but powerful book is a must read for all citizens, sheriffs, and government officials that we may all work to return America to the constitutional republic she was meant to be. Amazing as it might be, the sheriff can make this happen!

http://www.sheriffmack.com/index.php/books-by...

No Sheriff Left Behind

Yes, that's the plan. Make sure that every sheriff in the country has received a copy of "The County Sheriff: America's Last Hope". We're not going to force them -- er, excuse me... withhold federal money from them -- but we are going to give them an opportunity to read it. With your donations, we can make it happen.

When every sheriff understands his duty and functions with the support of those whom he serves, then not only will there be "no sheriff left behind" but we, the people will not be left behind!

You may donate any amount you choose to this cause... all donations are appreciated and will go towards the printing and delivery of a copy of the book to every county sheriff in America. You may specify the state or county where we should send the books. If you do so, please provide us with the addresses where we should send them.

If you purchased books yourself to give to your local sheriff, please send us an email so we can keep track.

All Law Enforcement is Local
with Lance Eldridge
January 03, 2011

The federalization of local law enforcement

The Power of the Purse
The second mechanism of federal intervention is through the use of federal grant money, which in turn demands that receiving departments comply with federal standards of implementation and accountability.

During his campaign for the White House, then-Candidate Obama pledged, as part of his urban renewal efforts, to increase funding for local law enforcement agencies through the DoJ’s Community Oriented Policing (COPS) grant program. The purpose of the infusion of taxpayer dollars was to “combat crime” and “address police brutality and accountability.”

Unfortunately, at least for crime reduction, an October 2005 General Accounting Office (GAO) study cast doubt on the effectiveness of the COPS program. Reviewing data between 1994 and 2001, the GAO concluded that COPS funding added about 17,000 to the sworn officer pool available to local agencies. Though the ability of the program to reduce crime varied among jurisdictions, the overall conclusion was that any reduction in crime was “modest” and that “factors other than COPS funds accounted for the majority of the decline in crime during this period.”

These conclusions suggest that federal dollars for local policing have more to do with control via “accountability” than crime reduction. The new Administration included one billion dollars in the stimulus package to hire 7,000 new officers in 2009 and 2010. In April 2009, the House pledged an additional $1.8 billion over the next five years to provide 50,000 federally paid local officers. In June 2010, the President warned federal lawmakers that without further stimulus funds, police layoffs would be inevitable. In other words, over time the federal government will be paying the cost of tens of thousands of police officers nationwide. These numbers reflect a growing dependency on federal dollars for local law enforcement needs, something that then Senator Biden wanted to make permanent.

National Unionization
House Resolution 413 — the oddly-named Public Safety Employer-Employee Cooperation Act — has a stated purpose of extending collective bargaining rights to all first responders. Doug Stafford from the National Right to Work Committee believes this legislation has greater implications and grants the federal government “broad power to impose the terms and conditions of employment for ... public safety workers and local and state governments.”

Should this legislation become law, it’s unlikely that a newly-established national union would allow localities to lay off police officers. The result would be that localities would either have to raise taxes after federal funding ran out or ask for additional federal funding, creating a permanent dependency that will foster federal control over local policing practices.

In his own words Sheriff Tony DeMeo describes an incident where federal agents of the BLM threaten him with arrest while the Sheriff issues his own threats of an armed response if illegal seizures of private property in his county continue. Imagine if BLM authorities went ahead with their "normal" operations of seizing cattle found on public property in direct opposition to Sheriff Tony DeMeo warnings? We would witness a standoff with dire consequences.

Lawmaker's new proposal would hit feds with charges

Tells IRS, DEA, BATFE agents to get authorization for arrests from sheriffs

Posted: January 12, 2011
8:18 pm Eastern
By Bob Unruh
© 2011 WorldNetDaily

The state of Montana, which came up with the idea that the guns made, sold and kept inside its borders simply are exempt from federal regulations and made that its law, now is considering a new weapon that could be used to cancel much of the authority of federal agents over its residents.

A new legislative proposal would declare that the state's local county sheriffs are the pre-eminent law enforcement authority in their jurisdictions, and federal agents such as those working for the Internal Revenue Service, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Drug Enforcement Administration, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and others, would be required to get permission from them before they could take any action.

Get a copy of the nation's rulebook and find out what it really says: "The Constitution of the United States"

The proposal, Senate Bill 114, is called "An act regulating arrests, searches, and seizures by federal employees; providing that federal employees must obtain the county sheriff's permission to arrest, search, and seize; providing exceptions; providing for prosecution of federal employees violating this act; rejecting federal laws purporting to give federal employees the authority of a county sheriff in this state; and providing an immediate effective date."

Inside that mouthful of provisions is a requirement that federal agents work through and get permission from sheriffs before taking any action to arrest anyone, seize any object or search anywhere. And it includes a promise of consequences if that is not followed:

"An arrest, search, or seizure or attempted arrest, search, or seizure in violation of [section 2] is unlawful, and the persons involved must be prosecuted by the county attorney for kidnapping if an arrest or attempted arrest occurred, for trespass if a search or attempted search occurred, for theft if a seizure or attempted seizure occurred, and for any applicable homicide offense if loss of life occurred. The persons involved must also be charged with any other applicable criminal offense in Title 45," the bill explains.

It's been introduced by state Sen. Greg W. Hinkle, who is from Thompson Falls and represents the state's District 7.

It's been developed with the help of the same people who brought up the plan that Montana can, under the U.S. Constitution, exempt from federal regulation guns that are not in "interstate" commerce.

My serious advice to our Sheriff is to recruit and deputize 150 to 200 reserve deputy's who are well armed, of good character, and are loyal to Fentress County.

Keep them as a sort of Minuteman posse who will report immediately when called.

And be prepared to set the Feds straight as to who the ultimate Law Enforcement authority is here.

Do not let the Feds get started here with the TSA, VIPER TEAMS, and Dept. of HomeLand Security.

Part 1 of 2

Null. Void. Of No Effect.

Michael Boldin
Tenth Amendment Center
January 21, 2011

When Washington D.C. violates the constitution – as it does every single day – the essential question is –“what do we do about it?”

For countless decades, Americans have been responding through protests, lawsuits, and “voting the bums out.” Yet, year in and year out, federal power always grows. And it doesn’t matter which political party is in power, or what person occupies the white house either.

THE RIGHTFUL REMEDY
In 1798, Thomas Jefferson wrote that “whensoever the general government assumes undelegated powers….a nullification of the act is the rightful remedy.”[emphasis added]
Notice that TJ didn’t advise us to use nullification as a remedy “once in a while.” And he certainly didn’t tell us that a nullification is the rightful remedy after “we vote some bums out” or “we sue the federal government in federal court” or after anything else for that matter. Jefferson was pretty straightforward and recommended that every single time the federal government exercises powers not delegated to it in the constitution (there’s about 30 powers and nothing more), that we’re to reject and nullify those acts on a state level as they happen.

HAPPENING NOW
Already, more than two dozen states have virtually stopped the 2005 Real ID act dead in its tracks. How? By refusing to implement it. Fifteen states – most recently Arizona – are using the principles of the 10th Amendment to actively defy federal laws (and a supreme court ruling, too!) on marijuana. Eight states have passed Firearms Freedom Acts in an attempt to reject some federal gun laws and regulations. And seven states have passed Health Care Freedom Acts to block health care mandates from being enforced.

NULL. VOID. OF NO EFFECT.
Get used to reading these words, because the political climate is starting to swing a new direction. There is a growing number of people in America that are recognizing a simple truth – Asking, demanding, or suing to get the federal government to fix problems caused by the federal government just doesn’t work.
Take, for example, the Federal Health Care Nullification Act, first introduced in Texas as HB297, and now also introduced in Montana (SB161), Wyoming (HB0035), Oregon (SB498) and Maine (LD58). Here’s an excerpt:
“the federal law known as the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act,” signed by President Barack Obama on March 23, 2010, is not authorized by the Constitution of the United States and violates its true meaning and intent as given by the Founders and Ratifiers, and is hereby declared to be invalid, shall not be recognized, is specifically rejected, and shall be considered null and void and of no effect.”
But these bills, as introduced in Texas, Maine, Montana, Oregon, and Wyoming are far more than mere declarations or position statements

ENFORCEMENT
Implied in any nullification legislation is enforcement of the state law. In the Virginia Resolution of 1798, James Madison wrote of the principle of interposition:
That this Assembly doth explicitly and peremptorily declare, that it views the powers of the federal government, as resulting from the compact, to which the states are parties; as limited by the plain sense and intention of the instrument constituting the compact; as no further valid that they are authorized by the grants enumerated in that compact; and that in case of a deliberate, palpable, and dangerous exercise of other powers, not granted by the said compact, the states who are parties thereto, have the right, and are in duty bound, to interpose for arresting the progress of the evil, and for maintaining within their respective limits, the authorities, rights and liberties appertaining to them.

ENFORCEMENT
Implied in any nullification legislation is enforcement of the state law. In the Virginia Resolution of 1798, James Madison wrote of the principle of interposition:
That this Assembly doth explicitly and peremptorily declare, that it views the powers of the federal government, as resulting from the compact, to which the states are parties; as limited by the plain sense and intention of the instrument constituting the compact; as no further valid that they are authorized by the grants enumerated in that compact; and that in case of a deliberate, palpable, and dangerous exercise of other powers, not granted by the said compact, the states who are parties thereto, have the right, and are in duty bound, to interpose for arresting the progress of the evil, and for maintaining within their respective limits, the authorities, rights and liberties appertaining to them.

Part 2 of 2

Null. Void. Of No Effect.

Michael Boldin
Tenth Amendment Center
January 21, 2011

In his famous speech during the war of 1812, Daniel Webster said:
“The operation of measures thus unconstitutional and illegal ought to be prevented by a resort to other measures which are both constitutional and legal. It will be the solemn duty of the State governments to protect their own authority over their own militia, and to interpose between their citizens and arbitrary power. These are among the objects for which the State governments exist”

Here Madison and Webster assert what is required of nullification laws to be successful – that state governments not only have the right to resist unconstitutional federal acts, but that, in order to protect liberty, they are “duty bound to interpose” or stand between the federal government and the people of the state.

All five bills explicitly include this principle, and if passed, would impose penalties on federal agents for attempting to enforce National Health Care mandates in their state. For example, from Wyoming’s HB35:

Any official, agent, employee or public servant of the state of Wyoming as defined in W.S. 6-5-101, who enforces or attempts to enforce an act, order, law, statute, rule or regulation of the government of the United States in violation of this article shall be guilty of a felony punishable by a fine of not more than five thousand dollars ($5,000.00), imprisonment in the county jail for not more than two (2) years, or both.

Sources close to the Tenth Amendment Center tell us to expect approximately ten states to introduce such bills in the 2011 legislative session.
