KingCast and Mortgage Movies Interview Request with WA AG Ferguson on Foreclosure Mill Attorneys and Office Integrity.
Lanny Breuer and Eric Holder: Much Ado About Nothing.
As a former Assistant Attorney General and escrow attorney I can safely say that America's legal compass dangles in a very precipitous state when big money interests have co-opted the very institution that our citizen rely on for consumer protection. Are the foxes watching the henhouse in the Nation's Capitol and in Washington State? Some have even argued that it is tantamount to a pedophile watching a daycare center.
This is part one of several, and in this part I will share the Stacey Solie feature on bought and sold Attorneys General that was vetted by the NYTimes last year. In the story Reporter Solie specifically mentions Washington AG Bob Ferguson ethical challenges in reportedly shaking down the 5 hour energy drink people in this story last year before two major developments came to light in Washington.
In no particular order, first the Seattle City Auditor and other government employees conspired to put a muzzle on the contents of the land records audit conducted by Marie McDonnell analytics. The audit focussed on the implausible constructions that MERS uses to legitimize a clearly flawed business model that allow for transfers of property without any predicate ownership interest. McDonnell's local mentor and consultant was Attorney Scott Stafne, who will be on air with me on the Susan Harmon Hour this Friday at noon, on 1150 AM.
I have run video of several successful Stafne law office hearings and I am further aware that his client won a partial summary judgment motion against MERS in Snohomish County case of Schiavone v. MERS.
Despite that, or some would argue because of that type of spirit, we come to issue #2, with Attorney General Bob Ferguson issuing a subpoena to Attorney Stafne, which in turn led Attorney Stafne to inquire as to the relationship between Ferguson, Seattle City Hall and two recent foreclosure mill attorneys whom Ferguson hired.
This leads to the obvious concern of neutrality because I am not aware of any recent hires of homeowner attorneys on Ferguson's staff, so there is immediately a conflict of interest issue of the same nature that I covered in New Hampshire with its Committee on Redress and Grievances a few years ago:
Now as seen here in these emails Attorney Roesch of course was involved in the investigation against Cal-Western: I sent him some information I had discovered during a mediation, and he sent me a consent decree. That's good for what it's worth, which really isn't much because it doesn't go into the systemic problems of fraud and deceit that run rampant in the chain of title. In fact, it was arguably window dressing.
And now Attorney Roesch's linked in page is no longer visible but lets look at the national revolving door trend witnessed by AG Eric Holder and his purported prosecutor Lenny Breuer, neither of whom seemed to be able to indict or prosecute a ham sandwich during the entire mortgage industry debacle.
Eric Holder = Covington Burling
Lanny Breuer = Covington Burling
Benjamin Roesch = Lane Powell
Daniel Davies = Davis Wright Tremaine
I will leave you for now then, but stay tuned for part two in which I telephone Attorney General Ferguson and ask for a brief interview on some of these issues because we all know his support for open government is legendary as he believes that even private emails of public employees are within the purview of open records requests. I lost on that same exact issue some years ago in New Hampshire (link) so I am glad to know we are making progress in America and I anticipate that AG Ferguson will readily invite me in for a in interview session on video.

In Shoreline, kneadyourbody massage. We swear by her. I thought the best evidence of this will be to record myself on that verge of sleep while she figures out all those little knots and tension spots but then I thought no one really wants to hear that.... so just go and find out for yourself.
It's what a body needs!
PS: And if you are in Portland you go see Dana Buhl, of course!

For my Mom, who taught me to drive Swedish cars way too fast! But she could do it whilst eating an ice cream cone in high heels and disciplining my sister and me. Mostly my sister of course.

KingCast and Mortgage Movies Say TILA Rescission is Sabotaged in Washington with Josh Schaer Serving Dual Role as Trustee and Creditor.
It's all a Big Shame folks. And Josh Schaer is involved.... see from my interview with him last year I had really hoped he would come around and stop working for those scumbags, but hey I guess the money's too good. From the Bakers:
If you are unfamiliar with this landmark case, you can read it here: Jesinoski v. Countrywide This case is extraordinary because the material facts of the Baker's case are identical to the Supreme Court case, and yet their home has been taken from them, though they were never in default on their mortgage. The Baker's properly rescinded their mortgage in 2009, which was not in default, and their notice of rescission was ignored and their house was subsequently foreclosed upon in June 2015, in the face of this pending appeal.
The principle matter in this case is that the USSC, in January of 2015 mandated that the TILA never required a borrower to sue the creditor for ignoring the notice of rescission in order for the note to become void by operation of law. They further declared that TILA is unambiguous on it's face, and because of this, NO court has the discretion to interpret it. This means that all transfers and court rulings on the material issues of this case are VOID because the court was ruling on VOID MATERIAL FACTS AND DOCUMENTS and the trial court should have vacated the ruling.
The Baker's TILA rescission was done properly, exactly as specified in the TILA, invoked for egregious misrepresentation of finance charges at loan closing by Paramount Equity Mortgage that they discovered and for which they were seeking redress. When the lender refused to correct the errors, the Baker's exercised the legal right of TILA Rescission as a last result. Prior to the rescission, they obtained pre-approval of a new mortgage to tender the proceeds of the rescinded mortgage as outlined in the TILA.
They were not in Default or alleged Default.
Even the trustee displays incompetence about what TILA Rescission is: He repeatedly declared that the Baker's attempts to "get a free house" were going to fail, and made many other comments on record in this regard. Educated people know that Rescission does NOT offer a free house to anyone, rather it attempts to restore the parties to the position they were in before the mortgage was established, and that includes the borrower tendering back the funds borrowed. The Baker's were prepared and able to do this, but this fact is always downplayed in court. You see, that would taint the whole "deadbeat debtor" thing they were pushing.
It is of note that the attorney for the alleged "Creditor" and the attorney for the "TRUSTEE" were the same guy: Joshua Schaer. Later, he resigned as the bank attorney, presumably because the Baker's attorney pointed out that it was unlikely that the "Trustee" was capable of being "impartial" (as the law dictates) if the same attorney represented BOTH the bank and the trustee! Unfortunately, in Washington State, this is business as usual.

KingCast Slow Motion Analysis: Paraplegic Jerry McDole Disobeying Orders but Adjusting Pants While Shot by Wilmington Delaware Police.
This is not directly mortgage related but I wound up in Delaware because of corruption
in the mortgage industry, i.e. the La Mar Gunn stolen election at
Kent County Recorder of Deeds.
a) apparently put his hand in his pocket and
b) not raise his hands.
Police have a tough enough job but why make it any more difficult than it has to be, I ask in his death. But these police had options, dammit. A come-from-behind, stun guns, all kinds of options. And for crissakes I hope they were not responding to a potential suicide call with deadly force, right? At Central DE NAACP President La Mar Gunn's FB page I explain that two of my prep school buddies and I just had this conversation two nights ago here in Seattle and it went like this:
The three of us discussed this the other day and I came up with "officer what is it exactly that you need me to do" with your hands up and no movement whatsoever.
Very tactical move for obvious reasons if you think about it. You surrender control and authority and if on video make it very difficult for them to drop you. It should be the new National mantra, actually but what do I know.... That's just based on years of experience as a male, negro, AAG and crim defense/civil rights atty (kicked these cops' asses). Of course some rogues will kick you in the head and some PD will hide the dash cam, ahem see James Blake/Delaware movie below but that's life I guess.
Then you sue, if you're alive. That's all you got, folks, sorry. And remember, these are white police here, and a black suspect. That's the worst possible combination and most likely to get you shot.
Meanwhile watch the movie below in the James Blake journal entry for a history of East Coast Police abuse as noted in the video below. Also, Delaware is a fucked up place for black people anyway. It is the only State out of ten or so in which I was threatened with arrest for running video at the Kent County Recorder of Deeds whilst investigating the stolen La Mar Gunn election. Read more about the legacy of Governor Markell and AG Matt Denn here. Judge Young Rule 59 referencing the Motion to Recuse that he had ignored here. I've stopped responding in that case they are all so corrupt they can kiss my black ass, frankly.

KingCast and Mortgage Movies See Quincy Incumbents Hide FEMA Emails in Forced-Place Insurance/Zoning Debacle.
Here is your back story on how the City of Quincy, MA is putting the screws to James Berlo, a Good Man.
Re: Margaret LaForest response to M.G.L. c. 66, § 10: She withheld a crucial FEMA email to James Berlo
Yesterday at 9:51 PM
From Christopher King
Mr. Timmins, Also it has occurred to me that this has the taste, feel and smell of a RICO violation. We've got several individual actors conspiring to deprive Mr. Berlo of a Constitutionally-protected right and at least one of them knowingly withholding a crucial email from FEMA that appears to be dispositive.
As such, it's not like Pelfresne, but something different. I am going to spend a little time on Lexis and likely approach the FBI as your client's answers continue to filter in. Because as you know, I'm not here to play around.
