Real Estate Taxes/Collusion/Graft

Thursday, August 29th, 2019

by: Marceline Donaldson

It never ceases to amaze me how many people are willing to take part in an obvious rip-off of others with those “others” including themselves and they do this for nothing – mostly not even realizing the rip-off. How many “good” people are willing to ‘go along to get along’ turning their backs to the suffering of others caused by their ‘head in the sand’ attitude towards life.

Real estate taxes is one of those areas. A collusion between the banks and the government entity levying the taxes.

Take a close, clear look at what that is all about.

Many government entities, which have decided to charge real estate taxes to those within their boundaries join the corporate and financial mafia which is totally ripping off the average citizen, daily, and these government entities contribute their share in that kind of enterprise. They join in making the banks overfed, arrogant and with an attitude that the banks rule.

How does that happen?The right to collect real estate taxes is declared and the reasons and areas which will benefit are also outlined. Those having to pay the taxes are in general agreement because they see the benefit to themselves and their generations to come.

And then things go off the rail. What enters is graft, theft, rip-offs, greed, power and much more.

How could something which started off as a benefit become such a tool to the grifters and others who insert themselves into the process? Think about who benefits before the real estate taxes you pay reach their destination. Very few people pay their real estate taxes to their government entity. Their taxes are collected by the banks. When they sign for the mortgage they are given a story which is clearly not true as to why the bank should pay the taxes. They are convinced that is the best way and their mortgage papers have a clause they have to sign – even under duress or they don’t get the mortgage – that the bank can take over paying their real estate taxes at any point the bank decides. That means many who start off paying their taxes directly to the government entity, in a short time receive notice from the bank that their mortgage amount is increased by the amount of real estate taxes and it must be paid at the same time their mortgage is due.

Real Estate Taxes have made the banks of America fat, overly arrogant, feeds them for free so they can do their thing in other areas ignoring their customers and much, much more. It is free money for six months. Money the banks knows will come in on a certain day and will remain for the next six months. The banks know that will continue for the life of the mortgage, which in some cases is 30 years. Billions and Billions of dollars free – from John and Jane Q. Public.

The public could put that money monthly into a savings account if they so decided and receive interest payments at the retail market rate. They could buy bonds which come due a few days before their real estate taxes and receive appreciation and interest. They could do a number of things with their own money and earn for themselves instead of giving that money to the bank to be held – for free. The banks are not charity organizations to whom you contribute because of the good humanitarian work they do.

Think of what a bank can do and is doing and has done around real estate taxes. The billions and billions they collect and use to up their bottom line comes from the hard earned money of John and Jane Q. Public who makes the money by hard work and gets zero return on his or her dollars because the bank’s evil geniuses have figured out how to set in place such a system and make it palatable to the general public. It is normal – is what we’ve heard. Everybody has to pay their taxes to the bank – we’ve also heard. And how does that make it right – we are asking?

Today you are required or convinced by the bank’s smooth talk to make mortgage payments to the bank which include your real estate taxes. The bank’s requirement is that you make these tax payments to them six months in advance. The bank holds that money – can use it anyway they choose – and for six months they have money in the billions on which they don’t pay anything to the people whose money they are holding. Banks have billions of dollars they can use – free – to do whatever they choose and they don’t have to answer to anyone for the money nor pay interest nor anything else on those real estate taxes which they hold for fully six months.

If you have a 30 year mortgage, the bank knows that for the next 30 years they have your money to use for free for six months ongoing for the next 30 years.

And then come the games.

Foreclosure and default are very lucrative for banks. If you pay your mortgage plus interest in full and do not pay your real estate taxes to the bank you are found in default for money owed to no one. but which the bank has declared a part of the repayment of your mortgage and they hold that you are in default or foreclosure because the real estate taxes you do not owe have not been paid.

We have been contacted by people who are in default on their mortgage and some who are in foreclosure. Those in default have had massive fees added to the mortgage amounts in spite of the fact that their mortgages were paid in full and on time. For three months they did not include the real estate taxes because they figured out the game the banks were playing and refused to go along. They contacted the bank and said they were going to pay their real estate taxes directly to the government entity and the bank said no. That is not possible. If you don’t pay directly to us and if you don’t pay six months in advance of when the amount is due you will be held in default after three months of not making those real estate tax payments to the bank.

They have tried to send money each month to the government entity – which was fine, but because it was not in the bank, they were found in default by the bank when, in fact, there were no monies due because the government entity had been paid.

So, in spite of their mortgage having been paid in full and on time – and their real estate taxes having been paid six months in advance of their being due, but directly to the government entity instead of to the bank, the bank put them into default and a couple such people we knew about into foreclosure for not paying monies they didn’t owe. The problem was resolved, but with the bank keeping the many fees charged because the mortgage had been declared in default and with the other family, the fees kept because the mortgage was in foreclosure.

The bank, knowing the real estate taxes were paid in full ignored that and paid the government entity the real estate taxes in full. In another case, the bank overpaid the taxes because they needed the extra few thousand dollars they overpaid to throw the family into default on their mortgage. In another case, the bank paid other bills, which they had no right to pay, but which they did anyway causing the family untold problems to work through and all of that with attorneys – causing the family to expend even more money. Is that fear and intimidation?

One such person had an agreement with their bank that they would pay their own real estate taxes. After several months of going along with that, the bank notified the person that their real estate taxes needed to be escrowed in addition to paying the mortgage. They refused because they had a different agreement going into the mortgage – the mortgage was paid on time and the real estate taxes also. The family put real estate tax monies into bonds which matured in six month increments so they could use that money to pay the government entity. That didn’t matter, the bank wanted the money to use for its own purposes, for free and demanded that their mortgage holders pay their real estate taxes directly to the bank or face foreclosure.

Did you know the bank can attempt to foreclose on your property even if your mortgage plus interest is paid before its due date and in full?

Into this money game – enter the government entity collecting the real estate taxes. They have several games they play in collusion with the banks.

  1. They go along with the banks demanding that the real estate taxes be paid six months in advance and the money held by the bank – without recompense to the mortgage holder. And, on one account we saw where the mortgage holder paid an average of $5,000 to the city for real estate taxes over six months, that mortgage holder’s bank was one of the more generous banks paying them $.31 interest on their $5,000 for six months.
  2. Enter the elderly. Many government entities have passed laws which say those over 65 – although some say those over 75 – may defer their taxes on their property until either they die or sell the house. The interest on such ranges from 3% to about 7% depending upon the amount of interest so stipulated by the particular government entity.
  3. Enter the games against the elderly. Some government entities on their admin side don’t want that, but it was passed anyway. So the admins and their managements have found a way to by-pass this. They make sure to discombobulate, to dissemble, to refuse to accept the applications from the elderly for such deferrals. Many we have encountered are very good at this pushing away and not accepting applications yet claiming the applications were not complete, not offered, not submitted, etc.
  4. If that doesn’t work and the elderly person is particularly good at dealing with bureaucracies what then comes into play is the collusion between the banks and the government entities. The government agrees that the application is complete, good, passed on positively and the elderly person sends it to their bank holding their mortgage and the bank refuses to honor the deferral.

5. Given the fact that the bank should not be able to dishonor such an application, especially if the equity is substantial enough to insure the taxes will be paid upon the person’s death or sale of the property – the bank refuses to accept the deferral and does not have to give a reason. Just a blanket refusal. We call that bank-greed and elder-abuse.

6. We call it bank-greed because we have tracked down a few such instances and have found that there will be people in the bank with their eyes on a particular property where the elderly owners are going through this process and they want to buy the house, but not at the retail price which everyone else has to pay. With machinations, the elderly person is, in effect, swindled out of their property and the city or bank person goes away happily owning a new piece of property or have passed it on to someone who gives them a kick back.

7. The rub from all of this is that the elderly person will generally wind up without their property living in subsidized elderly housing and the person paying that bill is John Q. Public who was swindled by the banks and the government entities in the first place in this real estate tax dealing. So that swindle comes around again and payment is extracted again from the tax paying public.

There is a whole lot more to this than the above and we encourage you to send us information from your experiences. We will continue to write about it in installments so that you can see how banks, taxes, mortgages, government entities work hand and glove in ways we feel are illegal, but they feel as their right against those working hard to put bread on their tables and keep their heads above water let alone attempting to do anything more that they deserve because of their hard work over a lifetime.

Harriet Tubman Boycott

Friday, August 23rd, 2019

by: Marceline Donaldson

We have had telephone calls from several people who wanted a Harriet Tubman stamp. So we are putting out the particulars on where to get your stamp.

Remarkablestamps.etsy.com

If you want a contact person try Rachel@stamp-connection.com

They will soon have a web site to keep you up to date on their Tubman stamp. Their website when operational will be www.TubmanoverJackson.com

We will also be setting up shop to get the word out.

I double checked with banks – tried three – and each one said the same thing to me that we wrote about in the blog on the Harriet Tubman Boycott. If you have a $20 that has been stamped with Harriet Tubman’s face covering Andrew Jackson’s face it is still legal tender and you can use it in stores, take it to banks, etc. and they will give you other denominations for your $20. Or pay for your purchases and they will give you change. When that $20 reaches a bank it will be taken out of circulation.

Our goal is to make sure all $20 bills which do not have Harriet Tubmans portrait – those $20 will be out of circulation. The Obama Administration laid out the plans for the Harriet Tubman $20 bill. It was to take affect within months of his leaving office. Donald Trump and Mnuchin decided to keep the Andrew Jackson bill in circulation. They did not want the embarrassment of having a black womans’ face on United State currency.

Andrew Jackson, according to Mr. Trump, is his favorite president. Given Trump’s racism, sexism and bigotry around everything and everyone not male, white, protestant, northern european, we understand his preference. He has chosen the president under whom the Trail of Tears happened. That is his kind of president. It is so fitting that Harriet Tubman, who sacrificed so much to help free African slaves should replace Andrew Jackson’s portrait on United States $20 bills.

Only a White Nationalist president like Andrew Jackson would think otherwise. Trump’s separation of families at the southern border, exposing children to sex traffickers who are always looking for such easy pickings, goes along with the Trail of Tears president. Both have caused unbelievable suffering of tens of thousands of feeling, thinking, caring, human beings – of tens of thousands women, children, men, the elderly, babies in arms.

My great-great grandmother was on that Trail of Tears. Every time I think of it I tear up and get emotional. She was taken off the trail by my great-great grandfather, an Irishman, who she met in the process of all of her suffering. They had several children, settled in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and their progeny are all over the world doing incredible things. These are the people Trump wants to eliminate.

Wherever we go we will have our Harriet Tubman stamp with us. If you need bills stamped, please ask, the stamp is self-inked and we bought extra ink anticipating a wide demand.

May you all be surrounded by love in all that you do and may it benefit the world immensely. Make sure you will not be talked about as being one of those who helped bring forth a holocaust in these United States because good people, like you, did nothing. And make no mistake, Trump is building a true holocaust.

When we talked about Trump Concentration Camps folks didn’t believe it. Thought it was an exaggeration. Today, 24 people have been killed in those Trump Concentration Camps. There are “cold rooms” where immigrants are kept if they cross the border and have some kind of respiratory ailment – a cold, the flu, etc. And they are kept in those “cold rooms” for as long as a month with only the light cotton clothes they had on when they entered and the flip flops on their feet. That 24 people will add up quickly at the rate Trump is moving.

To have your $20 bill stamped with the likeness of Harriet Tubman to help withdraw all of the $20 off the market does not take much. If you want your own stamp so you can spread the word even further they cost only $25 and can be purchased from Stamp-Connection.com with the information we gave you at the start of this blog.

Good stamping!

$20 Bill Boycott – Dynamite

Thursday, August 15th, 2019

While stopping in the bank to make a deposit I stumbled over some incredible information which I would like to share with you.

If you want to contribute and are frustrated with Donald Trump and all the rest, but don’t know how to make a difference, this boycott of the $20 to make sure Harriet Tubmans picture is on this bill is the way in. It does not take a lot of time. You can make your voice heard just in the process of going about your daily business.

What does this have to do with my stopover at the bank?

I heard and was assured that if you stamp the picture of “Moses” – Harriet Tubman – over the picture of Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill this was not illegal and could be done. I now have certification of that from the bank.

A really fantastic branch manager outlined what this was all about and I am in her debt.

Before the end of the Obama Administration, replacing Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill and putting Harriet Tubman on that bill, was a done deal. At least until Trump became the illegitimate president of these United States -who gained his presidency with the help of foreign powers adversarial to these United States. When that happened, Trump declared there would be no Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill and his Treasury Secretary Mnuchin carried out Trump’s wishes. (Probably so he and his wife could return to Fort Knox next year and once again watch the fireworks from the roof of Fort Knox on the 4th of July arriving via private plane at taxpayers expense – yet again.)

The Bettina folks called a boycott of the $20 and I joined in making sure when I received change for whatever, it did not contain a $20 bill. That seemed a bit slow, but nevertheless I was right there doing my thing refusing to accept a $20 no matter where or for what.

I have discovered something better. If you go on Etsy.com you can buy a stamp designed by Dano Wall which can be superimposed on the $20 covering up Andrew Jackson and showing an elegant image of Harriet Tubman.

What good will that do?

Once stamped and you use that $20 bill to pay for whatever or you take it to the bank to exchange it for other monies – that $20 bill is taken out of circulation. Just like the bills are taken out of circulation when people write on them or otherwise mark up any bill. I understand people have been known to write poetry on their money.

If we constantly stamp the $20 bills – and all of you who want to get involved and are frustrated with Donald Trump and his racism along with Mnuchin and his following of Trump – here is how to rid the world of Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill and let your voice be heard that you want the Obama program replacing Jackson with Harriet Tubman to happen immediately.

I sent for a stamp. When it arrives I will stamp every $20 bill that comes my way and set it back into circulation. With thousands of you joining me and others – the $20 bills will be out of circulation and kept out of circulation until the program put in place by Barack Obama and his administration will be honored instead of set into the filth and foulness of the Trump Administration and its White Supremacy.

Count me in! I have not taken part in anything close to a civil rights action ever in life. This will be a first for me, but I am certainly going to go at this with gusto.

What about Andrew Jackson? Whose picture on that $20 bill we will be covering over? Did you know Jackson signed the 1830 Indian Removal Act which forced more than 60,000 Native Americans from their land and onto the Trail of Tears? Why would anyone have ever tried to honor such a man and continue to honor him into the 21st century?

We honor the Hitlers’ of this world and we denigrate and spit on those who have truly moved us closer to a good and honorable place. How many times did Harriet Tubman risk her life to bring others out of slavery!!!!!!!

Good luck! Let Bettina Network know what you are doing to they can continue to move this boycott forward. You can find me on the street corner stamping $20 bills. I have not been this excited in years.

To purchase a stamp: go to etsy.com and the cost is $25.30 with free shipping and a self inking stamp. To include more ink the cost is $30.00. And what a souvenir for your family to keep for generations to come with the story of how you helped move us to a more diverse, good and kind, gracious and elegant society.

It is time to resign

Sunday, August 4th, 2019

or to be thrown out !!!!!!!

Three shootings, spaced across the country in one week, coming immediately after Treasonous Trump had an extremely racist and white nationalist and Nazi tinged rally during which he called for his base to support him and show themselves with action, is a message we cannot ignore.

Treasonous Trump, Moscow Mitch and Cute Nancy – it is time to wrap it up and leave.

The El Paso, Texas shooting in Walmart is a clear historical re-enactment which includes Charlottesville, where the supporters of Treasonous Trump brought back to life, Krystallnacht – the Nazi theatre, complete with torches and winding down a ‘sort of’ mountain to make sure the message was sent. If we didn’t believe Donald Trump was at the head of a Nazi-type regime, that should have cleared up any doubt. If we didn’t believe how he prepared for this, even as far back as his first marriage during which he kept “Mein Kampf” on his night stand and read from it every night (according to the testimony in his divorce from the woman who slept with him for years and had three children by him.)

The shouting by those who participated in that re-enacted Nazi theatre was clearly “Jews will not replace us.” And what do we read from the notes left for us by the white male neo-Nazi white nationalist who shot and killed at least 20 people and injured some 26 more during his rampage in El Paso, Texas? – Among other things his concern about being ‘replaced.’

How much do we have to go through before we come together to take action against what Treasonous Trump, Moscow Mitch and Cute Nancy have in store for us?

Power and money motivates Treasonous Trump and Moscow Mitch and clearly it also motivates Cute Nancy. To impeach Treasonous Trump would not bring the power and glory to Cute Nancy that beating him soundly at the polls would bring – so she is willing to risk his not being brought to justice because of her glorified thoughts about her own ability to pull this off. Her flawed reasons are seen by others, but she is totally blind to them – blinded by the power and money shining on the opposite road. Either way, with Treasonous Trump as president or without him Cute Nancy still benefits and moves ahead in her job.

Moscow Mitch is clearly building an empire with his wife and doing it in the muck and slim of treason along with Trump. A patriot is not a word which even begins to describe Moscow Mitch. Someone who puts himself and his power and money needs above all is where Moscow Mitch has always been and continues to be. I read in this blog some time ago the question asked as to how Moscow Mitch knew Treasonous Trump would be the next president, however, illegitimately. From everything showing, the country wanted Hillary Clinton as its next president. Moscow Mitch knew otherwise and he showed that knowing by the way he worked to keep President Barack Obama’s pick for the Supreme Court from even getting a hearing. He certainly was not stonewalling that nomination so Hillary Clinton could choose the next Supreme Court justice. We see the actions happening all around us, but we don’t walk those action to their most logical conclusion. We prefer to keep on our blinders so we can keep from acting to save these United States of America. We think that by so doing we will come out of this just fine. We won’t! Germany thought the same and look at that history and how much was paid so most could live their quiet lives of desperation as they always had – without taking action which could upheaval or jeopardize what they had and where they were going.

So in the long run aren’t we all after the same thing? Power and money? Only the degree to which we act and the size of the reward we have decided is ours, if we work hard, keep silence differs. – Go along to get along is that what separates us? Big sin or little sin?

They all need to go. And NOW!

There is a Trojan Horse amongst those running in the Democratic Primary.

Tulsi Gabbard needs to be closely watched and what she says taken with a grain of salt because she probably has talking points given to her by the Donald. Points he has charged her to get into the debate? Her target is Kamala Harris. Trump can attack Elizabeth Warren with impunity, but he is not able to go against Kamala Harris so he has put in Tulsi Gabbard to do his dirty work. Watch and you will see her comments, word choice and more. They are very Trumpian. Her comments, word choice and structure are too close not to have been developed through some collaboration with Donald Trump.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

From: A Bettina Network Lifestyle Community Member

What is it Trump and those he nominates to his administration have in common? Take John Hyten, for example. One of the latest Donald Trump nominations.

Donald Trump is a person who has some 20 plus credible charges of sexual assault, sexual abuse, rape and more against him by women who are very credible when you take a look at who they are – including a rape of a 13 year old who sued Donald Trump in Court, but withdrew the suit when she and her family received death threats.

John Hyten – like most Trump nominees, has a very credible accusation of sexual assault against him which Trump, his friends, supporters, Senators and others are claiming will not be considered as they decide whether to vote his nomination up or down. Who votes for John Hyten needs to be remembered by all of us.

Remember Al Franken and these same Republicans as they commented about and called for his resignation when one of their own called Franken out on what looked like sexual abuse? Republicans immediately called for his resignation and even Trump’s comments were negative towards him. He was not accused of anything nearly as gross as that for which Trump’s recent nominee, John Hyten, has been accused.

When you look at the people Trump has nominated to serve in his government, most have such charges against them and in spite of that, they are confirmed. So we have a cabinet and government in which a huge number of those serving are sexual predators (Let’s not even begin to mention those with conflicts of interest and accusations of wrong doing much worse) – just like the man who has illegitimately claimed the presidency.

It is an unbelievable set of circumstances when you see the people supporting Donald Trump having the same problem. Senator Martha McSally – Republican Senator, appointed to her post by Donald Trump – has claimed the woman making the charge against John Hyten is not being truthful. That in spite of the fact that Senator McSally made her own claim of rape and expected that to be taken seriously. She calls herself “a military sexual assault survivor”. And when she is confronted with others who had similar experiences she psychically sexually assaults them – apparently if they are Democrats with the possibility of blocking one of Trump’s nominees she coldly backs Trump and whatever he is doing. What’s good for the goose is not good for the gander in Senator McSally’s life.

Senator McSally has been quoted as saying “We’ve come a long way to stop military sexual assault but we have a long way to go.” Apparently, speaking out against others who have been sexually assaulted in the military and claiming she does not believe their story is one way Senator McSally gives her statements the wring of truth. With someone like McSally fighting military sexual assault it will never end. Shame is not something Republicans for Trump experience – no matter how low they have stooped. Empathy and compassion are totally missing from Martha McSally, who is very much like those who support Donald Trump.

Why GOP Senators are quiet and will not step out for any reason no matter how foul the situation and no matter the fact that they have something to contribute to the truth of many of these situations around Donald Trump and could stop him from his viciousness and the vile environment he has created around himself and is spreading across the world.

All one has to do is look at the way Elijah Cummins has been treated by Donald Trump to understand why Republican Senators are so quiet and why people like Lindsey Graham have become so close to Donald Trump, doing his bidding no matter how low they have to stoop to accomplish his wants.

Moral courage is not common amongst Republican Senators nor is it common amongst many these days. God bless those who stand by their ethics and moral values and live them out in their daily lives.

Children in a Trump administration.

The United States is a dangerous place to be for children.

The pedophiles have been picking up white children. Those who supply the pedophiles have been making white children available to these corrupt souls. Today, however, it becomes clear that white children and children of color are at risk here – which group of children will be in demand this week depends upon the time and what is happening and how the scheme has been laid out for the pedophiles with money to pay.

All one has to do is look at the huge number of Trump friends and supporters who are involved in the sex trafficking of children and look at what is happening at the southern United States border. Jeffrey Epstein, from what I’ve read, has apparently become wealthy through this process.

Trump has created a heaven for such people who sex trafficked in children. One side affect of Trump’s immigration policy is to create a pool of very young children, of young teenage children, of male and female children all ripe for the pickings of sex traffickers. Children who don’t have to be accounted for because the records have been “lost”, “misplaced”, never created in the first place and more as to reasons why children and their parents cannot be reunited. Children who can easily be pushed into a sex traffickers net without being missed; who have been put in and kept in hopeless, horrible situations and environments which make them more open to such things, especially when given no choice. The only people looking for many of these children are their powerless parents and those people of color have no way to push to find their children – a sex traffickers dream. Is this southern immigration strategy what Trump has created for his friends with such proclivities?

If Jeffrey Epstein could become one of the super wealthy in this society by braving the possible jail and other traps he could set off while doing his pedophilia thing, just imagine how wealthy Donald Trump can become with this scheme on the southern border of the United States to make vulnerable children available to whoever for whatever in whatever numbers are needed for their sexual fantasies to be fulfilled.

How much can the collective soul of this world bear? We shall soon discover in sharp and unbelievable actions and happenings. Amen!
