This is a really good article – thanks to Drake’s associate….
It seems many moons ago that I embarked on a journey with some good friends, hundreds of like-minded people I hardly knew and some new found experts in the field of Consumer Law. It seems like many moons but in reality it has been less than two years. Yet, in those short months I have gained a massive education thanks to five things; personal perseverance, due diligence and determination (without which you haven’t a chance), a team of incredible guys with an equally incredible web site, a wealth of available information, statistics, case law, instructional material and discussions on the net and in libraries, Google (without which I would still be looking for the first batch of case law I needed), and YOU!
There would be no purpose for the three nights a week dedicated to support calls if there were no YOU. There would be no purpose for the incredible web site if there were no YOU. Last but certainly not least, I would not have been able to learn and utilize all that I have gained in knowledge without YOU. This has been a joint venture in learning and probably the most vital tool we have had at our disposal is each other. The sharing of experiences, the endless repetition of similar or same questions which often lead to new thinking and new angles on issues we thought we already understood fully, the great willingness we have to reach out to one another to help those just starting out on this mission and the collective benefit we all enjoy which comes from disseminating to one another the fruits of our individual research and study, leads me to believe there is still hope for our dying nation.
The rampant fraud in the debt collection industry might seem like a drop in the bucket when contemplating the massive corruption, outside manipulation and dire circumstances we find ourselves in today. On a scale of one to ten; one being just an unfortunate by product of a corrupt society and ten being the root of all evil the country is suffering from, believe it or not the debt collection industry has to rank just below ten! Why? Because it is the criminal collection arm of the greatest fraud ever perpetrated on the people; Credit. Then why isn’t it number ten you might ask, well because number ten is held by the perpetrators of the whole massive scam, the bankers. It was absolutely brilliant to come up with a scheme whereby millions of trusting, innocent people could be led to actually accept and gleefully participate in a plan to loan them their own money, securitize their agreements and sell them for more wealth for the perpetrators, charge them exorbitant interest which raises exponentially when they find the predatory lending has rendered them unable to pay, charge off the debt and claim a loss on their taxes, collect from the insurance industry and then sell the fictitious debt to a pack of salivating dogs (posing as debt buyers/collectors). Naturally the dogs are lowest on the fraud food chain but they comprise the largest sector of the fraud business so based on sheer numbers and the fact that everything in our “corporate” world is indeed a numbers game, they needn’t worry about following the law. A few hundred law suits each year brought against them by savvy consumers who recognize the statutory violations they routinely commit is truly a drop in the bucket of their annual profits. Law suits are accepted as just another business expense like office supplies, payroll, taxes and insurance. That is until now. The seasons are changing.
All criminal enterprises need tools just as ethical enterprises need them. The one essential tool for the debt collection fraudsters enabling them to continually bend, break and mutilate the law is bar card attorneys. Up until now attorneys, schooled in deceit, trickery, smoke and mirrors, a little bit of knowledge of the law and a whole lot of cut n paste case law skills have been successful at minimizing the damage and staunching the bleeding when the collectors step over the line. Of course those attorneys couldn’t really care less about the clients, (the fraudsters), any more than they care about the law. What they care about is billable hours and lining their pockets. How else are they going to pay off the massive debt they were also scammed into by the bankers in the form of student loans? At the end of the day all they care about is that somebody is going to pay them and they are going to get paid far more than their services are worth as we now know from experience. If all bar card attorneys gave two hoots about the law, ethics, justice and the public good they would be busy representing the innocent or prosecuting the guilty. Instead, on the road to riches many of them choose the path of least resistance; representing the crooks against the unenlightened innocents, the consumers.
Unfortunately for the bar card holders the scales of justice are starting to level out if not gain height on the side of truth. Part of the reason for that is a massive awakening going on out there as a direct result of sudden desperation leading to righteous indignation and causing hordes of the disenfranchised to start lifting rugs to see just exactly what has been swept under them but that’s only part of it.
We can clearly see that WE are starting to make an impact when we are being labeled as “predatory litigants”, “litigiously inclined consumers”, “vigilante litigants” and a host of other misnomers. Suddenly the lazy habits of cut n paste irrelevant or out of context case law and filing a motion to dismiss on a 12b(6) just isn’t working. A switch to a motion for a summary judgment backed by electronic data and robo signed affidavits, are no longer enough to make us run off with our tails between our legs. Coercion, intimidation and veiled threats no longer head a determined pro se off at the pass and even downright threats for actions they can’t take, no longer work. Why? Because while they weren’t looking and busy racking up those billable hours we were studying the LAW, learning to understand the meaning of the tools Congress gave us and the procedures we need to play in their sand box and beat them at their own dishonest game. Needless to say they don’t like it but more than that, they DON’T GET IT.
The fact that they don’t get it is more than obvious when we see silly bills proposed to Congress by fraudulent bar card carrying debt collectors to EXCUSE THEM from the violations of the statutes by reason of their “bar cards”, or sleazy lawyers threatening pro se’s “off the record” at depositions with “perjury charges” or being charged with “practicing law without a license” as if there were such a thing to begin with. What they have failed to recognize is that the American people have been rudely awakened from a very long nap and are now mad as hell and are not going to take it anymore! All fraudulent endeavors must come to an end sooner or later and some far later than others, (there is one I will be sharing soon which has had a centuries long run and is a doozey!) but for now we need only stay the course, study, read, comprehend, retain and maintain the offensive.
That brings me to what I wish to share today on this subject. I received an article from http://usa-the-republic.com/jurisprudentia/index.html via email earlier today and it is so VERY important to our understanding, both of what we are doing and why our country is such a putrid pool of corruption run by self-serving lawyers/judges today. I am going to paste the article here and interject my comments in red as I usually do. I don’t know who the original author is or I would certainly cite credit to him or her. Instead I have included the url to the site the article originally came from…..
THE BAR CARD
AS PER THE UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT;
The practice of Law CAN NOT be licensed by any state/State. (Schware v. Board of Examiners, 353 U.S. 238, 239)
The practice of Law is AN OCCUPATION OF COMMON RIGHT! (Sims v. Aherns, 271 S.W. 720 (1925))
The “CERTIFICATE” from the State Supreme Court:
To practice Law “IN COURTS” as a member of the STATE JUDICIAL BRANCH OF GOVERNMENT.
Can ONLY represent WARDS OF THE COURT, INFANTS, PERSONS OF UNSOUND MIND (SEE CORPUS JURIS SECUNDUM, VOLUME 7, SECTION 4.)
“CERTIFICATE” IS NOT A LICENSE to practice Law AS AN OCCUPATION, nor to DO BUSINESS AS A LAW FIRM!!!
The “STATE BAR” CARD IS NOT A LICENSE!!! It is a “UNION DUES CARD”.
The “BAR” is a “PROFESSIONAL ASSOCIATION.”
Like the Actors Union, Painters Union, etc.
No other association, EVEN DOCTORS, issue their own license. ALL ARE ISSUED BY THE STATE.
It is a NON-GOVERNMENTAL PRIVATE ASSOCIATION.
The State Bar is;
An Unconstitutional Monopoly.
Don’t forget UNIONS are the very reason we have a teacher in New York who, after sexually harassing children in school has been put on, out of class room rubber room duty since the late 90’s, has been paid more than one million dollars of tax payors money not to teach, has even gotten a raise and all because THE UNION WON’T ALLOW THIS PREDATOR TO BE FIRED!
AN ILLEGAL & CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE;
Violates Article 2, Section 1, Separation of Powers clause of the U.S Constitution.
There is NO POWER OR AUTHORITY for joining of Legislative, Judicial, or Executive branches within a state as the BAR is attempting. “BAR” members have invaded all branches of government and are attempting to control de jure governments as agents of a foreign entity!
It is quite simple to see that a great fraud and conspiracy has been perpetrated on the people of America. The American Bar is an offshoot from London Lawyers’ Guild and was established by people with invasive monopolistic goals in mind. In 1909 they incorporated this TRAITOROUS group in the state of Illinois and had the State Legislature (which was under the control of lawyers) pass an unconstitutional law that only members of this powerful union of lawyers, called the “ABA,” could practice law and hold all the key positions in law enforcement and the making of laws. At that time, Illinois became an outlaw state, and for all practical purposes, they seceded from the United States of America.
Funny how so much corruption and criminal enterprise has historically been seeded, sprouted and spread from Illinois, Mafia, Bootlegging, Racketeering, Communism disguised as Community Organizing and the BAR just to name a few. Hmmm isn’t Illinoise the state that brought us Lincoln? Ah but that’s another article.
The “BAR ASSOCIATION” then sent organizers to all the other states and explained to the lawyers there how much more profitable and secure it would be for them, as lawyers, to join this union and be protected by its bylaws and cannons. They issued to the lawyers in each state a charter from the Illinois organization. California joined in 1927 and a few reluctant states and their lawyers waited until the 1930’s to join when the treasonous Act became DE FACTO and the Citizen’s became captives.
Remember the old Union tactic, if you can’t convince them to join, break a few arms or legs to convince them as to how much safer joining would be? If money and illicit profit are not enough to persuade perhaps bodily harm, or threats thereof will do the trick.. it would seem so.
Under this system, the lawyers could guarantee prejudged decisions for the privileged class against the lower class. This was all made possible by the AMERICAN BAR ASSOCIATION to favor the right and have unlawfully substituted them in place of Constitutional Laws. The Constitution was written in plain English and the Statutes passed by Congress were also in plain English, with the intent of Congress how each law should be used and not the opinions of various Judges as the codes list. Any normal person can read the Constitution and Statutes and understand them without any trouble.
Of course Congress is still trying to preserve the Plain Language of the statutes. They constantly use that phrase in an effort to keep the liar lawyers at bay even though they themselves are infiltrated by them to a more than alarming percentage but you have to give it to them for trying.
The public in California was shocked to learn that the State Government has no control or jurisdiction over the Bar Association or its members. The state does not accredit the law schools or hold Bar examinations. They do not issue state licenses to LAWYERS. The Bar Association accredits all the law schools, holds their private examinations and selects the students they will accept in their organization and issues them so-called license but keeps the fees for themselves. The Bar is the only one that can punish or disbar a Lawyer.
This is what us laymen call “The FOX running the HEN HOUSE”, worse, it’s the FOX stocking and running the HEN HOUSE!
They also select the lawyers that they consider qualified for Judgeships and various other offices in the State. Only the Bar Association, or their designated committees, can remove any of these lawyers from public office. The State Legislature will not change this system as they are also a designated committee of the Bar. On August 21, 1984, Rose Bird, Chief Justice of the California State Supreme Court, another of the Bar Associations Judicial Committee’s, stated in essence, that the Bar should determine the legality of all initiatives before they were allowed to go on the ballot.
This is contrary to State and Federal Constitutions, as well as the Laws of this Nation instituted By and For the People as a Sovereign UNITY of Independent States of We The People, not a fraudulent Corporate entity of Lawyers. This is a tremendous amount of power for a PRIVATE union that is incorporated and headquartered in Illinois to hold over the Citizens of California or any other state. The only recourse is through this initiative process and vote by the people.
After the Founding Fathers had formed the Constitution, outlining the laws as to the way our government was to be run, Thomas Jefferson said, in essence, “This proves that plain people, if given the chance, can enact laws and run a government as well as or better than royalty and the blue bloods of Europe.” The American people must stop thinking that lawyers are better than they are and can do a better job than they can before the courts of America.
Well so much for that myth. We have already proven that aside from deceit and trickery there is nothing taught in Law School that is not readily available to the least sophisticated consumer (us), with a dogged determination to learn and utilize that knowledge to right the wrongs heaped upon us by fraud. So start seeing them for what they are, empty suits with no authority over you and certainly no better or smarter than you. In fact, which is smarter, to achieve knowledge by self-determination and independent study, or Law School and a life time of unethical behavior to pay back a student loan? We also need to get it through our thick skulls that the COURTS belong to us, not the judge, not the attorney, not the banks, not the fraudsters but to US, LOCK, STOCK AND BARREL!
Under the Common Law and the Laws of America, no where is it expressly given for anyone to have the power or the right to form a Corporation. “Corporations” are given birth because of ignorance on the part of the American people and are operating under implied consent and power which they have usurped and otherwise stolen from the people. By RIGHT AND LAW THEY HAVE NO POWER, AUTHORITY, OR JURISDICTION, and must be put out of business by the good Citizens of America in their fight for FREEDOM.
The U.S. Constitution GUARANTEES to every state in this union a REPUBLICAN FORM of government. Any other form of government is FORBIDDEN. No public officer or branch of government can be limited to a RULING CLASS of any kind, or the states become ARISTOCRACIES and NOT Republics. Also, the lawyers have made themselves 1st Class Citizens, where many public offices and branches of government are open to lawyers only.
All other people are limited to only two branches of government and to only certain offices in those two branches of government, making all people who are non-lawyers into 2nd class subject citizens. When the courts belong to the people, as the United States Constitution REQUIRES, (Article IV, Section 4, we the people, will NEVER rule against themselves.) In these Unconstitutional foreign tribunals “courts” (hoodlum centers), “men” in black dresses, that are Unconstitutional ROBES OF NOBILITY. (Article 1, Section 9 and 10) dispense a perverted ideology, where the people are lawyer judges in the courtrooms).
In the interest of fairness and truth I will not support the idea that ALL judges and lawyers are nothing more than “men in black dresses” and “empty suits” because we do know there are some honorable men sitting the bench and there are a FEW (emphasis added), ethical attorneys. That said, it makes little difference when they are trapped in the same cess pool of corruption our court system and government have become. That is the best reason I can think of to recognize and praise those who can manage to act in honor in the interest of justice and We The People when we encounter them. As hard as it is for us to suddenly realize that everything we’ve been taught from diapers to adulthood is absolutely false, imagine what it’s like to have to fight the beast from within every single day while being literally shackled by the fraud. I for one do not envy them their jobs.
The legislative branch of government does NOT have the Constitutional Power to issue Court Orders or any other kind of Orders to the people, as a “fiction court” or a “court/corporation for profit and gain” cannot reach parity with a lawful man. ONLY Presidents and Governors have the Constitutional Power to grant PARDONS, but lawyers and lawyer-judges are unconstitutionally granting PARDONS with “immunity from prosecution.”
Citizens are not permitted to act like people in the courts. The Citizen (2nd class) is told that he does not know how to fill out fancy lawyer forms; that he is not trained in the law; that he does not know court rules and procedures; etc. This is Unconstitutional “lawyer system,” only HEARSAY SUBSTITUTES (lawyers) NOT under oath, have access to the fiction/for profit and gain courts, even though ONLY sworn testimony and evidence can be presented in court. Anything else is “Bill of Attainder,” NOT permitted under the U.S. Constitution (Article 1, Sections 9 and 10).
The U.S. Constitution does NOT give anyone the right to a lawyer or the right to counsel, or the right to any other HEARSAY SUBSTITUTE. The 6th Amendment is very SPECIFIC, that the accused ONLY has the right to the ASSISTANCE of counsel and this ASSISTANCE of counsel CAN BE ANYONE THE ACCUSED CHOOSES WITHOUT LIMITATION.
Got that? You cannot be forced to have an ATTORNEY and you can have ANY ASSISTANCE YOU CHOOSE! AND you CANNOT BE CHARGED FOR ASSISTING ANYBODY ELSE! Whilewe are not attorneys or judges (thank God for small favors), we are not restricted from helping each other and even though we don’t do it as we don’t profess to know it all, we can’t even be punished for giving advice! Bite that one off and chew it Mr. Liar Lawyer who likes to intimidate with threats.
LAWYERS and LAWYER-JUDGES: Created Unconstitutional “lawyer system” pre-trial “motions” and “Hearings” to have eternal EXTORTIONISTIC litigation’s, which is BARRATRY and also is in violation of the U.S. Constitution, and Article 1, as this places defendants in DOUBLE JEOPARDY a hundred times over. Defendants only have a right to “A” TRIAL, NOT TRIALS. When a criminal is freed on a TECHNICALITY, HE IS FREED BECAUSE OF A FIX and a PAY-OFF, as a defendant can only be freed if found innocent BY A JURY NOT BY ANY “TECHNICALITY.”
Whenever a lawyer is involved in a case directly or indirectly, as a litigant or assisting in counsel, ALL LAWYER-JUDGES HAVE TO DISQUALIFY THEMSELVES, AS THERE CANNOT BE A CONSTITUTIONAL TRIAL and also there would be a violation of the conflict of interest laws, along with the violation of separation of powers and checks and balances, because “OFFICERS” OF THE COURT ARE ON BOTH SIDES OF THE BENCH.
These same LAWYER-JUDGES are awarding or approving LAWYER FEES, directly and indirectly, amounting to BILLION OF DOLLARS annually, all in violation of conflict of interest laws. As long as there are lawyers, there will never be any law, Constitution or Justice. There will only be MOB RULE, RULE BY A MOB OF LAWYERS.
CASE “LAW” IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL: As CASE “LAW” IS ENACTED BY THE JUDICIAL BRANCH OF GOVERNMENT. When a lawyer-judge instructs, directs, or gives orders to a jury, the lawyer-judge is TAMPERING WITH THE JURY. He also tampers with testimony when he orders the answers to be either “Yes” or “No.” The lawyer-judge also tampers, fixes, and rigs the trial when he orders anything stricken from the record, or when he “rules” certain evidence and the truth to be inadmissible.
This makes the trial and transcript FIXED and RIGGED, because the jury does not hear the REAL TRUTH and ALL THE FACTS. Juries are made into puppets by the lawyers and lawyer-judges. All lawyers are automatically in the judicial branch of government, as they have the Unconstitutional TITLE OF NOBILITY (Article 1, Section 9 and 10), “Officer of the Court.” Citizens have to be elected or hired to be in any branch of government, but non-lawyer Citizens are limited to only two of the three branches of government. Lawyers, as 1st class citizens, can be hired or elected to any of the three branches of government.
Lawyers, “Officers of the Court,” in the Judicial Branch, are Unconstitutionally in two branches of government AT THE SAME TIME whenever they are hired or elected to the executive or legislative branches. This is a violation of the separation of powers, checks and balances, and the conflict of interest laws. District attorneys and State’s attorneys have taken over the Grand Juries FROM the people, where the people are DENIED ACCESS to the Grand Juries when they attempt to present evidence of crimes committed in the courtrooms by the lawyers and lawyer-judges.
The U.S. Constitution, being the Supreme Fundamental Law, is not and CANNOT be ambiguous as to be interpreted, or it would be a worthless piece of paper and we would have millions of interpretations (Unconstitutional amendments) instead of the few we have now. That is why all judges and public servants are SWORN TO SUPPORT the U.S. Constitution, NOT interpret it.
Under INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: ALL LAWYERS, whether they left law school yesterday or 50 years ago, are EXACTLY THE SAME. All lawyers have to file the same motions and follow the same procedures in using the same Unconstitutional “lawyer system”. In probate, the lawyers place themselves in everyone’s will and estate. When there are minor children as heirs, the lawyer-judges appoint a lawyer (a child molesting Fagin) for EACH CHILD and, at times, the lawyer fees EXCEED the total amount of the estate.
An OUTRAGEOUS amount of TAX “MONEY” is directly and indirectly STOLEN BY LAWYERS. Money that is budgeted to County/City/Borough Boards, School Boards and other local and federal agencies eventually finds its way into the pockets of lawyers, as ALL of these agencies are “TRICKED” and “FORCED” into ETERNAL EXTORTIONISTIC LITIGATION.
In the state of Alaska and Hawaii, the BAR ASSOCIATION has mandated that all judges are to be licensed to practice law (e.g. Alaska Constitution, Article IV, Section 4). This license requirement is not found in any other state of the Union. As all licenses to practice law in the state of Alaska and Hawaii are issued by a judge, what judge is qualified to issue a license to practice law to another judge? As only members of the Bar may be licensed to practice law (e.g. A.S. 08.08.020), Alaska and Hawaii judges are REQUIRED to be members of the BAR and as such, they are prejudiced to do the business of the BAR. If a judge is required to be a member of the BAR, who disqualifies the judge from office if that judge does not pay the dues or violates the rules of the BAR? Every state in the Union (with the exception of Alaska and Hawaii) “prohibits” judges from holding licenses to practice law.
What a mess and what a great deception but remember there is only one reason to hide an agenda, to lie about an agenda.. if it wouldn’t harm the agenda to be out in the open why hide it? Even though much of what I just shared in the article above is at the moment, beyond our ability to change, there is nothing preventing us from seeking to abolish it one step at a time. Knowledge is the first step to redemption and dark agendas have a hard time surviving in the bright light of exposure. To know is to be armed, to learn is to prepare and in order to undo the great harm this CLUB of liars has wreaked upon our nation, indeed the nations of the world, we must study harder, be more diligent, plant our feet firmly in the ground, take the hand of our neighbor and CONQUER THE BEAST TOGETHER!
You see, it’s true what I have said all these many moons…
YOU ARE THE ANSWER! AND SO AM I!
