While the Bearing in general has a creditor (saver) mentality, I have NO SYMPATHY for banksters who do not have their papers in order to throw a family out of their homes.

Not defending bogus buyers, NINJA homeowners, etc., but the d*#n banks should have done their homework right.

The biggest stunner as a result of all this, is just how broken the US judicial system is, if such core precepts as title deeds are gratuitously taken (or rather given) for granted on behalf of the supposedly sophisticated party. It appears there is no fact checking, diligence process, and, gasp, QC checkpoints anywhere in the legal pathway, when bankers are plaintiffs, making one wonder just how many false claims the banking industry has gotten away with, when the courts have (apparently rightfully) assumed they were too dumb to challenge any of the underlying case assumptions.

And I never had any sexual relations with that woman (countless others I had intercourse with, sure, but not that one).

I never inhaled.

Born in Hawaii, see my newly printed birth certificate... and no you can not see details of my college transcript or other matters.

The USA House/Senate totally believes in America (while many members also hold an Israel passport due to being a dual citizens).

The list can go on... and on... and on. Grab a shovel, it gets very deep.

But suck it up and tough shit you unemployed person as they had to bail out the banksters. Right Warren Buffet and gangster right hand guy?

All perjury is relative.

Relative to "National Security".

I'm taking bets that the DOJ, carrying the water for the fascist state, steps in here at some point and sweeps all, or at least most, of this away under the "National Security" banner. Now that the Military has identified the economic "crisis" as the most pressing "National Security" worry, it's only a hop, skip and jump to saying.......

"It's just paperwork. Besides, if you were patriotic, you'd pay your bills regardless of the rule of law, burden of proof, due process or due diligence. Your a terrorist."

Might makes right in the eyes of the corporate/governmental fascist mind.

I think we all assumed that although the banks may have made the paper trail complicated, they wouldn't have actually lost the paper along the way.


Of course, the courts are supposed to be a little bit more diligent than bloggers watching from afar.

Tyler, it's not that shocking. If you've ever had dealings with the civil court system or the bankruptcy trustees you begin to understand just how corrupted the entire process is. Until the American people understand that we have a three tiered legal system as outlined here:

1. Us schmucks who might get lucky and win

2. The indigent who we pay for their legal actions and problems

3. The JPM's and other super wealthy who buy justice and change decisions llke we change our underwear.

then there is no hope of reform. In the mean time people blindly accept the reality that there is nothing wrong with our political or judicial system and go blindly into their chemically induced phramaceutical bliss while enjoying their microwave dinners while watching American Idol or the idiocy of the day on cable or DishTV. No one understands it until they have to deal with it, like those retirees who attempted to seek justice against their brokers who illegally churned and burned their accounts and all they got was a lousy 20% of their prinicple back and a pat on the head from the arbitor.

The United States is broken, every branch of government, almost every institution inside of it and that is why this financial crisis will not heal until it is repaired.

Why on earth would anyone be surprised. 

Every administration for the last 50 years has had it eyes on the judicial arm of the government.  That is where the immediate and legacy power is.  That is where you transform history, where you change the direction of the nation.  Like the Titanic, is slow to respond at first and even harder to correct a bad course with out a new captain and hand picked crew.

The peoples will is not with the Judiciary, but perhaps now and for the last 10 years the power over the Judiciary has been the will of the administration in power and the one just exiting.

The Judiciary is just reflecting the same shoulder shrugging indifference that nearly every bureaucrat shows.  The same loading up on people who thing like you or are easy to dictate philosophy to.

But perhaps the biggest problem is to many cases for to few judges to properly review, especially when it comes to what should have been a cut and dry matter of honest fiduciary trust of the banks by the judges.

Perhaps when the Rebublicians win the elections in November, they can cut more judges out of the system to save money for all of taxpayers.

How is it possible for WFC to attach an Addendum to a sale which basically says: "We are selling this property to you, but if it turns out we never owned it in the first place, its your tough shit". Is that what its come to?

You people are pathetic:

  • The entire real estate legal system is one big fraud to provide lawyers with good jobs and fleece consumers out of their money.
  • So, you think it is OK for people live in houses "rent" free? If some can live rent-free then soon all will live rent-free.
  • In any business, managers sign tons of documents without checking each and everyone. It is a common practice. It is the absolute business necessity. You trust your people, otherwise, no business can function at all.
  • The entire foreclosure business is very fishy, especially 6 weeks before the coming national elections.

Thing is, they get away with it because borrowers rarely show up for forclosure proceedings, never mind hire counsel (with what extra money?) to protect their rights.

They tried to save a penny on both the front end (MERS) and the back end (rubber-stamping foreclosure documents) by bulk-executing processes that simply cannot be treated that way.

I still think there's far too much money involved here for an exception in the laws not to be bought. Silly rabbit, moral hazard is reserved for banksters.

You win $100 and a front row seat for the RICO trial of the century, featuring the bosses from the rating agencies, JPMorgan, GMAC, Countrywide, Goldman Sachs and every other part of the overlapping criminal enterprises, including the mortgage industry, the appraisers, Freddie and Fannie, Citi and the big banksters, the Wall Street investment banks, AIG, the federal co-conspirators at U.S. Treasury, SEC, OTS, and the Federal Reserve, especially FRBNY, and the members of Congress who aided and abetted the greatest financial crimes in U.S. history.

The pragmatic response is that you are 110% correct.

But then there are all those dumb Euro/Deutsch folk who bought these products. My hunch is that some out of the money PIG organization will file a complaint and it will be hard for the US courts to completely ignore the application of US law.

This is an epic fail.
