DOJ Coordinates With Kansas To Protect The Legacies Of Children

The U.S. Department of Justice is in full force, implementing its agenda, which seems to be systematically dismantling layers upon layers of social fraud schemes against the people.

This historic act is a financial protection in the best interests of the elder.

What may be extrapolated from this operation are charity solicitation fraud schemes through child welfare NGOs, which will always target the elderly.

It is quite interesting that the Kansas Attorney General is an enthusiastic participant in these activities considering the fact that the Kansas Legislature has introduced asset forfeiture legislation of the elderly and disabled (code for children) under the care of the state in guardianship, "to counter the increased costs of care" or so they say.

Kansas has no Auditor General so someone has to make sure the elder population is not getting ripped off by unscrupulous operations within the state government, too.

I believe I would be secure in proffering a passionate panegyric that the next phase of Jeff Session's Office's agenda is going to be protecting the best interests of children, the legacies.

Justice Department Coordinates Nationwide Elder Fraud Sweep of More Than 250 Defendants

Attorney General Jeff Sessions and law enforcement partners announced today the largest coordinated sweep of elder fraud cases in history.   The cases involve more than two hundred and fifty defendants from around the globe who victimized more than a million Americans, most of whom were elderly.  The cases include criminal, civil, and forfeiture actions across more than 50 federal districts.  Of the defendants, 200 were charged criminally.  In each case, offenders engaged in financial schemes that targeted or largely affected seniors.  In total, the charged elder fraud schemes caused losses of more than half a billion dollars.  The Department coordinated its announcement with the FTC and state Attorneys General, who independently filed numerous cases targeting elder frauds within the sweep period.

Attorney General Sessions was joined in the announcement by FBI Acting Deputy Director David Bowdich; Chief Postal Inspector Guy Cottrell; FTC Acting Chairman Maureen Ohlhausen; and Kansas Attorney General and President of the National Association of Attorneys General Derek Schmidt.

“The Justice Department and its partners are taking unprecedented, coordinated action to protect elderly Americans from financial threats, both foreign and domestic,” said Attorney General Sessions.  “Today’s actions send a clear message:  we will hold perpetrators of elder fraud schemes accountable wherever they are.  When criminals steal the hard-earned life savings of older Americans, we will respond with all the tools at the Department’s disposal – criminal prosecutions to punish offenders, civil injunctions to shut the schemes down, and asset forfeiture to take back ill-gotten gains.  Today is only the beginning.  I have directed Department prosecutors to coordinate with both domestic law enforcement partners and foreign counterparts to stop these criminals from exploiting our seniors.”

The actions charged a variety of fraud schemes, ranging from mass mailing, telemarketing and investment frauds to individual incidences of identity theft and theft by guardians.  A number of cases involved transnational criminal organizations that defrauded hundreds of thousands of elderly victims, while others involved a single relative or fiduciary who took advantage of an individual victim.  The schemes charged in these cases caused losses to more than a million victims.

"Winners. That’s what so many of the people who received these solicitations in the mail thought they were. But they’re not. They are victims(link is external) of scams that Postal Inspectors have seen and investigated for decades. In fact, some of the same operators we encountered 20 years ago are back. But so are we. Yesterday, Postal Inspectors around the country executed search warrants on 12 locations that some of these same operators used to run their scams. We’re letting the American public know – and especially our vulnerable older Americans – that Postal Inspectors are working hard to protect them and ensure their confidence in the U.S. Mail,” said Chief Postal Inspector Cottrell.

“Over the last year, the FBI has initiated more than 200 financial crimes cases involving elderly victims who were devastated financially, emotionally, mentally and physically. Picking up the pieces of these fraud schemes can be equally as traumatizing for the caregivers of these elderly victims,” said Acting Deputy Director Bowdich.  “The FBI reminds seniors and their caregivers to be vigilant. If any person believes they are the victim of, or have knowledge of fraud involving an elderly person, regardless of the loss amount, they should report it to the FBI.”


Actions against mass-mailing fraud industry

As part of the initiative, the Department’s Consumer Protection Branch, working with the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York and others, brought numerous cases this past week in a coordinated strike against more than 43 mass-mailing fraud operators, including criminal charges against six individuals.  In addition, law enforcement agents executed 14 premises search warrants from Las Vegas to south Florida, served numerous asset seizure warrants, and coordinated with the Vancouver Police in Canada, who executed over 20 warrants, including search warrants on business premises.

“The defendants targeted elderly and vulnerable consumers both in the United States and abroad, using U.S. addresses and the U.S. mails to try to legitimize their fraudulent schemes,” said U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York Richard P. Donoghue.  “They sold false promises of life-changing prizes that never came true.  We will pursue the perpetrators of these mail schemes wherever they are located, and hold them accountable.”

These recently filed cases particularly targeted transnational criminal actors who collectively defrauded at least a million victims out of hundreds of millions of dollars.  Indeed, just one of the schemes prosecuted criminally by the Consumer Protection Branch operated from 14 foreign countries to cost American victims more than $30 million.  Click here for map showing a transnational, single fraud scheme.

Mass-mailing fraud inflicts hundreds of millions of dollars in losses to elderly U.S. victims each year.  Department prosecutors and U.S. Postal Inspectors have taken a comprehensive approach to combatting this fraud, disrupting and prosecuting individuals who manage the schemes, artists who draft the fraudulent solicitations, list brokers who supply victim lists, and individuals who collect victim payments. Click here for fact-sheet with cases on mass-mailing fraud.


Actions against other elder fraud schemes

Prosecutors across the country from the Criminal Division’s Fraud Section, the Consumer Protection Branch and the U.S. Attorney’s Offices have heeded the call to focus resources on elder fraud cases.  Over 50 U.S. Attorney’s Offices and Department Components filed elder fraud cases in the last year.  A list of Elder Fraud cases is provided on this interactive map
Some examples of the elder financial exploitation prosecuted by the Department include:
  • “Lottery phone scams,” in which callers convince seniors that a large fee or taxes must be paid before one can receive lottery winnings;
  • “Grandparent scams,” which convince seniors that their grandchildren have been arrested and need bail money;
  • “Romance scams,” which lull victims to believe that their online paramour needs funds for a U.S. visit or some other purpose;
  • “IRS imposter schemes,” which defraud victims by posing as IRS agents and claiming that victims owe back taxes;
  • “Guardianship schemes,” which siphon seniors’ financial resources into the bank accounts of deceitful relatives or guardians.

Many of these cases illustrate how an elderly American can lose his or her life savings to a duplicitous relative, guardian, or stranger who gains the victim’s trust.  The devastating effects these cases have on victims and their families, both financially and psychologically, make prosecuting elder fraud a key Department priority.


Public education

The Department has partnered with Senior Corps, a national service program administered by the federal agency the Corporation for National and Community Service, to educate seniors and prevent further victimization. The Senior Corps program engages more than 245,000 older adults in intensive service each year, who in turn, serve more than 840,000 additional seniors, including 332,000 veterans.

Using its vast network operating in more than 30,000 locations, Senior Corps volunteers will communicate about elder fraud to potential victims across the country and will use their skills, knowledge and experience to educate their peers and caregivers about the most prolific types of schemes and how to avoid them. Click here for information on Senior Corps’ efforts to reduce elder fraud.


Coordination with state officials

Kansas Attorney General Schmidt highlighted the cases filed by state Attorneys General targeting elder frauds within in the sweep period, and he emphasized efforts at the state level to combat elder abuse and protect seniors from fraud and exploitation.  He encouraged all of the state Attorneys General to devote enforcement and public education resources to preventing financial exploitation of senior citizens.


Coordination with foreign law enforcement

Exceptional assistance from foreign law enforcement partners amplified the effectiveness of the Department’s initiative.  The sweep announced today benefited greatly from the work of the International Mass-Marketing Fraud Working Group (IMMFWG), a network of civil and criminal law enforcement agencies from Australia, Belgium, Canada, Europol, the Netherlands, Nigeria, Norway, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States.  The IMMFWG is co-chaired by the U.S. Department of Justice and FTC, and law enforcement in the United Kingdom, and serves as a model for international cooperation against specific threats that endanger the financial well-being of each member country’s residents.  Attorney General Sessions expressed gratitude for the outstanding efforts of the working group, including law enforcement action taken as part of the sweep by the Vancouver Police Department in Canada to halt mass mailing schemes that defrauded hundreds of thousands of elderly victims worldwide.

Elder fraud complaints

Elder fraud complaints may be filed with the FTC at www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov or at 877-FTC-HELP.  The Department of Justice provides a variety of resources relating to elder fraud victimization through its Office of Victims of Crime, which can be reached at www.ovc.gov.


Are those "Other Special Grants" a trust fund of forfeited assets of the old and young of "The Poors" (always said with clinched teeth) in the State of Kansas?

Schaun Sullivan, the State Budget Director, used to be the Secretary for the Department for Aging and Disability Services, just saying.

I wonder if any of these "Other Special Grants" funds are going through political campaigns?

But hey, what do I know?

Nancy Pelosi & Philippines Overthrow: It All Started At Nancy's House

It all started at Nancy's house.

Once upon a time Nancy Pelosi was mean to my Sweetie, and it really bothered me because I did not know exactly why.

Then, one day, I was magically sent to her house by a little cyber mermaid who had returned from a deep dive and found there were no property tax records. 

It seems she had her properties set up to be put into the family trust, which means they probably have warranty deeds and filed a land patent so she does not have to pay property taxes.

2012  J573584-00 12/28/2012 K802 0923 Deed of Trust R Paul Pelosi Family Trust, financed through Union Bank NA, which just so happens to be behind the Land Bank of the the Philippines.

These trust funds get TARP money and are registered as foreign entities.

It was at that moment, the stench of the Detroit Land Bank Authority began to permeate. which led me here, the San Francisco Land Bank:
5243 Mission St · San Francisco, CA

The San Fransico Land Bank is registered as the Philippines Land Bank:

Home
https://www.landbank.com/

They set up the same predatory privatization model in Haiti.

They set up the same predatory privatization model in Detroit.

They are all the same people.

https://www.landbank.com/about
Over the years, LANDBANK has successfully managed this tough balancing act as evidenced by the continued expansion of its loan portfolio in favor of its priority sectors: the small farmers and fishers, a good part of which are agrarian reform beneficiaries; micro and SMEs; agri- and aqua-projects of local government units and government-owned and controlled corporations; communications, transportation, housing, education, health care, environment-related projects, tourism, and utilities.
Then I quickly discovered how they were laundering money out the country.

They privatized administrative banking services, just like they did with human services in Michigan under Engler, just like they did in Russia.

The government owns the corporations because the corporations own the politicians, who in turn make the law to make the policy for them to what they want: privatize..

This is the predatory lending model for profiting off poverty, or rather another model for the new human trafficking, all neatly packaged into pretty databases in BANCNET.

You can now withdraw your money anywhere in the world through your cyber accounts, under the structure of whatever this concept of a land bank is operating as.

LANDBANK is regulated by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas.
Copyright © 2014 Land Bank of the Philippines. All Rights Reserved.


This is how they were laundering the money
Section 10 relates to the “Freezing of Monetary Instrument” wherein upon verified “ex parte” petition by the AMLC, the Court of Appeals (CA) should act on the petition to freeze within twenty-four (24) hours from filing of the petition, and the freeze order shall be for a period of twenty (20) days unless extended by the Court/CA.
TRANSLATION:  A land bank does not fall under traditional financial banking institutions, which means they made it up all the rules themselves, without any input from the public, because it is a private institution.

This is one of those slave labor programs set up to replace social welfare assistance because it provides free labor for the corporations whose child welfare NGO privately funded through social impact bonds are the ones who profit by billing the national trust fund, the treasury in performance standards, put in place through their own NGO think tanks and universities.

Moreover, the Program was able to forge a partnership with the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) under its “Cash for Work and Livelihood Assistance Program” that provided farmers with an initial grant to set-up a mini-farm. For its part, the Department of Agriculture (DA) provided free seedlings and much needed farm equipment.

This is a social impact bond program where "The Poors" (still said with clinched teeth) are nothing but "Works For Hire", packaged as a sexy, neofuedal policy of serfdom.

If a corporation can privately contract with State entities to grant legal custody and guardianship to its chattel, as in the reference to child welfare services where the child becomes under the aegis of the state, with guardianship being granted to private corporations like GALs and CIVITAS, then, under the exact same principle, these tiny humans, in essence, become copyright individuals granted legal guardianship of the NGO, owned by the land patent.

The child is an immoveable chattel, but the birth certificate, the ownership, will always be moveable, for leveraging as a financial instrument as a repurposed allodial title, as a land patent.

The trust funds, being the children's identities are now accessible for leveraging mortgages to buy land, and as such, have developed an entire, fully, ready-to-go-to, transposable model to take out a government by stealin' through law and policy.

Remember, before you are a man, you are a child, and now they own you at birth, of which they are now doing predictive modeling to forecast "the best interests of the child", literally.

Remember this?



I wonder just how many of those stolen children's identities who are now all grown up are being used as fake employees in federal government, to take out fake mortgages, make fake contributions to strawman child welfare NGOs functioning as a front for trafficking tiny humans of "The Poors", (always said with clinched teeth).

I wonder just how vast this operation of snatching identities and assets of those who hail from "vulnerable" or "targeted" populations, being determined by the state to be in need of corporate guardianship, for other purposes, like laundering fake campaign contributions through FEC campaign finance reporting.

Just on a side note, I thought it was interesting that "Pelosi's Meanies are running Air BnB operations in San Francisco and Haiti.

I truly hope there are no undercover trafficking tiny human operations associations going on with these Land Bank supported ventures in the Philippines, or San Francisco, for that matter.
And I truly hope none of the Land Bank of the Philippines operations are fueled through TARP.

Either way it goes, it all started at Nancy's house, and this is hardly close to even being finished.

Stay tuned.

What Is The Difference Between FISA & CPS?

CPS uses administrative databases of social welfare programs for parallel construction to take your kids and FISA uses NSA databases for parallel construction to take your assets.

They both use ex parte hearings by submitting fabricated evidence and are immune from prosecution.

Why?

They both have the Right To Lie and it makes privatized public service corporations lots of profit.

Someone once made the comment to me:
"All you do is repost articles and make some comments."
I do much more than just "repost".

  • I am preserving the historic record as these articles are removed and wiped from the internet;
  • I am creating a one-stop-shop database for everything thing in child welfare fraud research;
  • I am commanding law enforcement investigations for States, Federal and International entities;
  • I am promulgating my legal arguments;
  • I am educating the public;
  • I am having a blast doing therapeutic stand up castigation; and,
  • I am writing an epic romance.
With that said, it looks like Rip "The Rip-Off" Rapson is working overtime trying to rewrite the annals of history by covering up fraud and creating a legal defense in a public relations move.

FUN FACT!  Did you know that the surrounding Detroit neighborhood of Marygrove were acquired by the Detroit Land Bank Authority through foreclosures?

I have a quick question.


Just another privatization scheme to create their next level of inner city plantations, oops, I mean wraparound educational service centers for "The Poors" (always said with clinched teeth).


Kresge Foundation commits $16 million to chart path for Marygrove College, surrounding Detroit neighborhood

[Detroit, Michigan]  The following outlines The Kresge Foundation’s actions to stabilize and preserve Marygrove College and its campus, a historic educational anchor in the heart of an important northwest Detroit neighborhood. Kresge acted to stave off the college’s precipitous collapse and a raft of potential consequences.

Overview
Over the past two years, The Kresge Foundation invested $16 million to stabilize and preserve Marygrove College and its campus, as the college faced significant financial and operational challenges. Kresge grant and social investment funds have been deployed in a variety of ways since February 2016, including:
  • Financing the college’s ongoing academic programs and campus operations, including payroll, health benefits, and utility services;
  • Funding faculty, staff and student supports through the wind-down of what was determined to be an unsustainable undergraduate program;
  • Supporting the college’s recent transition to a graduate-level-only institution;
  • Protecting the integrity of the college’s 53-acre campus as a key community asset in the revitalization of one of Detroit’s most important neighborhoods;
  • Creating a new body, The Marygrove Conservancy, to steward the campus as a community resource;
  • Satisfying or restructuring Marygrove’s most pressing debts; and,
  • Exploring the feasibility of establishing an innovative cradle-to-career educational complex as a potential future use for the property.
How Kresge’s Involvement Began
In February 2016, newly appointed Marygrove President Dr. Elizabeth Burns contacted Kresge President Rip Rapson to discuss a precarious situation unfolding at the college. Burns indicated that the college would be out of cash within weeks and was facing an anticipated $5 million shortfall for the calendar year - this despite an emergency loan made in May 2015 to the college from its founders, the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (IHM), to avoid a similar liquidity crisis.
Dr. Burns sought $5 million in immediate support as part of a broader $15 million, multiyear Recovery & Sustainability fundraising campaign to stabilize the college. Several factors contributed to the college’s financial situation, including:
  • Total enrollment plummeted from 1,862 students in 2013, to 966 in fall 2016 (roughly 50 percent undergraduate, 50 percent graduate).
  • The college’s endowment had dwindled to $500,000; endowments at comparably-sized private schools in the region averaged more than 70 times that amount (e.g. University of Detroit Mercy, $43.5 million; Madonna University, $35.8 million; Adrian College, $33.6 million).
  • There was a growing burden of accounts receivables (outstanding tuition balances owed to the college).
Marygrove was not an outlier. Across the nation, the independent higher education sector was, and remains, in crisis mode. During the past decade, dozens of private liberal arts colleges have faced financial issues due to plummeting enrollment and weak endowments, causing them to close or pursue mergers.

Initial Response
“Our meeting made clear that Kresge had to respond, and rapidly,” says Rapson.
The importance of Marygrove to its immediate neighborhoods, city and region was obvious in several dimensions:
  • Marygrove has held an important role and legacy in urban education. The college had been educating Detroit women since the 1920s. In particular, Marygrove doubled-down on its commitment to educate minority women in the aftermath of Detroit’s 1967 uprising.
  • The college had embraced a role as a progressive force for racial and social justice and healing, both in its immediate neighborhood and in the greater southeast Michigan community.
  • The Livernois-McNichols district in northwest Detroit was emerging as a key place where equitable recovery could take root.
  • Just six months earlier (August 2015), University of Detroit Mercy, Kresge and other community partners announced the formation of the Live6 Alliance to steward that recovery process. The nonprofit planning and development organization was created to enhance quality of life and economic opportunity, with a particular focus on the Livernois Avenue and McNichols Road (aka 6 Mile Road) corridor in northwest Detroit. (The 53-acre Marygrove campus is located on the south side of McNichols Road, approximately a half-mile west of Livernois Road.)
Marygrove College has occupied its wooded, parklike campus since 1927.

Driven by the college’s status as an educational and cultural anchor in the neighborhood, coupled with Kresge’s recent commitments and investments in the area, the foundation was deeply interested in helping Marygrove shape a course of protection and preservation. The prospect of the college closing and the campus going dark was deemed unacceptable. The damage to surrounding home values, small businesses and other anchors in the district would have been calamitous.

“At the precise moment when the community should have been gaining momentum, there was a real fear of being forced backward,” says Rapson.

Kresge responded to Dr. Burns’ request with an initial operational support grant of $575,000 to keep Marygrove solvent. That spring, a Kresge-led convening of other philanthropies led to additional grant commitments totaling nearly $500,000 from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, the McGregor Fund and individual donors. Kresge also committed an additional $2 million to Marygrove for ongoing operational support.

“There was more at stake than a school, its academic mission and its tradition of community service,” says Rapson. “The collapse of Marygrove could have left the campus in private hands with no commitment to community betterment or engagement. Or worse, the college could have wound up under a cloud of litigation that would forestall progress for years. There was no other choice than to link arms with the college and systematically confront its challenges.”

Long-term Challenges
Marygrove enlisted an auditor to analyze the college’s finances and assist Dr. Burns with the turnaround plan. The resulting report gave Marygrove a deeper understanding of its challenges. Beyond the cash-flow issues, the report helped Marygrove begin to address its debt obligations:
  • DoED – The U.S. Department of Education demanded a $7.2 million letter of credit as a condition of roughly $15 million in Title IV funds (student financial aid). Without these funds, the college would be forced to close immediately.
  • Senior Mortgage – A senior lender’s balloon note of $7.3 million – collateralized by the campus, thus putting it in jeopardy – was due in full on December 31, 2016. The loan was in default, and the lender was no longer willing to amend or extend it.
  • Wayne County – A debt of $500,000 was owed to Wayne County. The county provided this loan to Marygrove so that the college could acquire and renovate the Immaculata High School building for the purpose of creating a new community center. Marygrove was unable to raise the additional capital needed to complete the renovation, and the loan had gone into default.
  • IHM Sisters – A balloon note for $10 million was due to the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. This loan was also in default for nonpayment. The IHM Sisters have, however, remained far more flexible than other lenders and have not called the loan.
The college determined it was incapable of resolving any of these debts on its own and asked Kresge for funding and supports to resolve the following:
  • DoED – In 2017, Marygrove convinced the DoED to accept a letter of credit secured by Kresge for $1.5 million (10 percent, rather than 50 percent, of the Title IV funds the school would receive through tuition scholarships to students) in lieu of sequestering other Marygrove funds.
  • – Kresge supported Marygrove’s negotiations with the senior lender, ultimately restructuring the debt with a $5 million loan from a new financial institution (and secured, in part, by a $3.75 million guarantee from Kresge for the balance). The new loan is not secured by the campus.
  • Wayne County – In early 2018, Kresge provided Marygrove a $500,000 loan to pay off the county debt.  
Meanwhile, ongoing operational expenses and payroll obligations were piling up, and Marygrove requested additional supportsfrom Kresge. And, as the year went on, Marygrove’s situation became more dire as enrollment projections for the fall 2016 semester were substantially lower than projected. Beginning in fall 2016, Kresge made $5.68 million in grants to the college to cover those expenses.

Difficult Decision
In spring 2017, Marygrove hired a consultant to conduct an operational audit and to evaluate its recovery plan. The firm specialized in providing consulting services to independent higher education institutions.

The operational report was presented to the Marygrove Board of Trustees on August 1, 2017. Based on a thorough analysis of academic program and student support costs, as well as enrollment and financial projections, the firm determined that there was not a sustainable path forward for Marygrove. The report recommended full closure of Marygrove or a drastic reduction in academic program offerings.

On August 9, 2017, Marygrove announced that its board had made the difficult decision to cease undergraduate programs after the fall 2017 semester; the college would concentrate on graduate education and graduate professional development certifications going forward.

Marygrove would use the fall semester to ensure that every student had an individual transition plan and that faculty and staff had the opportunity to meet with administrators. Marygrove would also use the fall semester to invite other colleges and universities to campus to meet with students and help them identify a fit that would enable them to continue their undergraduate education.

College Transition Support
Kresge agreed to support the college in an orderly wind-down of the undergraduate program. Operating support for the college’s final undergraduate semester, and preparation for its transition, now included costs such as severance and health benefits for faculty and staff, campus maintenance and security, and numerous vendor obligations. At year’s end (2017), Kresge made a grant of $2 million to fund faculty and staff severance packages, a Student Transition Fund, and consulting support to help the college transition to a solely graduate-level institution.

“After supporting Marygrove’s good faith attempt to find a new path for its undergraduate program, we worked with the college to help faculty, staff and, particularly, students make their career or educational transitions,” says Rapson. “These have been wrenching changes for everyone. We’ve watched the entire college community making sacrifices, working together in common purpose, and otherwise trying to achieve the best possible outcomes under the most trying of circumstances.”

Where Marygrove Stands Now
In February 2018, Marygrove introduced the $1.2 million Student Transition Fund, supported by Kresge, to help cover additional costs incurred by students as a result of transferring to another college or university. Roughly 180 former students will be eligible to apply for reimbursement of logistical expenses (transportation, one-time moving, room and board) as well as some academic expenses (tuition rate increases, additional classes required by new school, and others).
Today, Marygrove, with Kresge’s support, has satisfied or restructured its most pressing debts. Between February 2016 and February 2018, Kresge’s total commitments to help stabilize and transition the college total $16 million.

Marygrove is in the midst of further developing its online graduate education programs and is actively recruiting to boost enrollment and achieve sustainability. Currently, in its first semester as a graduate-only college, enrollment has climbed to 436 students pursing advanced degrees, professional development and certifications in several education specialties, as well as advanced degrees in social justice and human resource management.

The 53-acre campus is being transferred to a new body, the Marygrove Conservancy, chaired by Sister Jane Herb of the IHM. The conservancy will manage campus operations and steward the campus as a resource for high-quality uses in the community. Inaugural board members include neighborhood leaders such as University of Detroit Mercy President Antoine Garibaldi and Marygrove President Emeritus Glenda Price.

With the campus held by the conservancy, the college will be a tenant on a long-term lease at a cost of $1 per year. (The college previously was a tenant to the IHM Sisters during its first 70-plus years on the campus, then purchased the campus facilities in 2009, which were subsequently mortgaged to a lender.)

Next Steps: Positioning Marygrove for a New Future
Kresge, Marygrove, the IHM Sisters and the conservancy are currently exploring the possibility of a consortium of educational institutions coming together to create a campus comprising a continuum of educational opportunities – from pre-school to K-12 to post-secondary to graduate. Examples of this kind of P-20 campus exist around the country, but are relatively few. These consortiums typically coordinate classroom education with wrap-around services and intensive community-based engagement and programming. A particularly powerful example of this approach is the Penn Alexander School in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The Marygrove Conservancy, Kresge and other partners are developing a robust process to engage the surrounding community on the future development of the campus and enlist additional private, public and nonprofit partners.

“Revitalization on this campus must, and will, be accomplished with broad and deep engagement from community residents, civic organizations and businesses. Marygrove is part and parcel of the Live6 neighborhood – through its history, its ongoing renewal efforts and its aspirations for the future. Every dimension of community life will be shaped by the activities on the campus. We all have a stake in its success,” says Rapson.

Jerry Paffendorf Asks Wayne County Treasurer What They Did With All The Property Tax Foreclosue Money

I truly honor the work of Jerry Paffendorf.
Wayne County Mortgage & Deed Fraud Unit Fathead

What he does not realize is that his queries of civic engagement are futhering my work, and for that, I am humbled.

Another thing he does not realize is that many of these Wayne County Sheriff Property Tax Foreclosure Auctions never took place.

Yes, that is correct.

I used to sit in the auditorium with a list of properties, waiting for the bids, and the properties were never, ever called.

It seems there were "people" who selectively just "acquired" these properties.

Who these "people" were, I cannont definitively say at this time, well, actually I can because I pulled the records.

Kwame Kilpatrick and his crew were handing out prime properties like candy to Halloween kiddies trick o' treating before Janice Winfrey took it upon herself to incoroprate the Detroit Land Bank Authority, just usurping the State Attorney General, rather Mike Cox.

Mikey was busy during that time.

I actually sat in on that hearing in Lansing because I was waiting to hear the orals in the case that came after it on whether or not a social worker can make mental health decisions to terminate parental rights, when they had no medical license, no social worker license, no degree, etc.

The court said they could, but I digress.

Everybody was stealin' in Wayne County, back then.

To further my supposition that some of these "people" like the Detroit Land Bank Authority, just "acquired" the most prime of properties, including Downtown Detroit Commercial Properties, I have provided an order and opinion, below, to one particular case, where the plaintiffs recovered their tax foreclosed properties and were made whole in settlement.

Image result for kid wondering
"But we did pay our property taxes?"
It was such a misfortune that the attorney on the case made such egregious legal procedural errors, as she always does being greedy and stealin', being severly deficient in the areas of ethics and legal acumen.

FUN FACT!  Did you know the Hardest Hit Funds were supposed to assist in preventing tax foreclosures?

ANOTHER FUN FACT!  Did you know most of those property taxes were already paid?

I wonder what they did with all that money....hmmmm....

Perhaps, we should ask the Bill Clinton.

Or, you could just ask me because I busted them and made them pay me back because the Detroit Land Bank Authority was levying taxes, without any legal authority, when there were no taxes due to a court judgment of quiet title which wiped out any outstanding taxes, then they did not even report the collection of property taxes to Wayne County or the City of Detroit or the IRS because they never incorporated, because they told people to write the check out to Title Source, Inc., so they could cash it because they had no legal instrument of authority to open a bank account, because they never incorporated.


Note that this was a tax refund action #46 out of a batch of 50.

Did I mention that the Detroit Land Bank Authority never incorporated?

Just wanted to make sure I informed everyone that the Detroit Land Bank Authority never incorporated, because they never incorporated.

The following FOIA was posted on Facebook from Jerry Paffendorf:

This will make most of your eyes more than glaze over, but posting it here for the interested. I submitted another FOIA request to the Wayne County Treasurer's office, this time asking about the history of loans it has made to Detroit and other Wayne County communities to cover their uncollected property taxes back to 1972, along with how much it ultimately made or lost on each of these loans (including the results of the tax auctions).

There's been a lot of talk about how lucrative or not it's been to be the property tax debt collector and tax foreclosure auctioneer, but no good, hard, official data. Hopefully this solves that problem...

Freedom of Information Act Request for the Wayne County Treasurer’s Office; 

Submitted 2/20/2018

Good morning, XXXXXX!

Below are 6 related FOIA requests for the Wayne County Treasurer’s office (they are also attached as a PDF if that's easier). They all cover similar information related to the Delinquent Tax Revolving Fund program and loans that the Wayne County Treasurer’s office made to Detroit and Wayne County communities to cover their uncollected property taxes over the years. I have divided it into six parts for ease of research and delivery.

Please let me know if you have any questions by replying or calling me at XXX-XXX-XXXX.
Thank you very much as always! Happy late winter… it’s basically almost-almost Spring! (Thank goodness.)

Jerry Paffendorf

Jerry Paffendorf

I cannot wait to see how Wayne County is going to respond to this FOIA.

This should be quite the colorful response.

$14 Million Reason Why Trafficking Tiny Humans Is A Multi-Billion Dollar Industry

See what fun things people do with birth certificates in international adoptions and refugee programs.

Get 'em.

Sun Valley Resident Sentenced to 54 Months Imprisonment for Role in International Money Laundering and Identity Theft Scheme Involving $14 Million in Fraudulent Tax Refunds

          SANTA ANA – A Sun Valley man was sentenced late Monday afternoon to 54 months imprisonment for his participation in a large-scale international identity theft scheme that fraudulently obtained tax refunds by using bogus Republic of Armenia passports and then engaged in money laundering of over $14 million of these criminal proceeds.

          Karen Pogosian, 47, was sentenced by United States District Judge Andrew J. Guilford.  In addition to the prison term, Judge Guilford ordered Pogosian to pay restitution of $277,617 to the Internal Revenue Service.

          Pogosian pled guilty in September of last year to one count of bank fraud and one count of aggravated identity theft.

          According to documents filed with the court, the scheme involved over 7,000 false tax returns that together claimed approximately $38 million in refunds. Approximately $14 million obtained through the fraud scheme was then deposited into bank accounts to conceal its illegal source. The tax returns were filed using identity information stolen from thousands of victims.

          From August 2012 through March 2014, Pogosian opened mailbox and bank accounts using fraudulent identification with the names and personal information of identity theft victims. Pogosian also used the identification documents to create other IDs. For example, Pogosian used a foreign passport in the name of another person to obtain a Costco membership card also in that same person’s name, but with Pogosian’s photograph.

          Pogosian’s use of stolen identities resulted in approximately $277,617 in loses. According to court records, defendant was present illegally in the U.S. at the time he committed the crimes and had been receiving public benefits.

          The case against Pogosian is part of a larger investigation in which 14 defendants have been charged, nine defendants have pled guilty (eight have been sentenced), two are fugitives, two are pending trial and one is awaiting extradition.

          The ongoing investigation into money laundering involving fraudulently obtained tax refunds and related frauds is being conducted by IRS Criminal Investigation, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

          The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Charles Pell of the Santa Ana Branch Office. Assistant United States Attorney Frank Kortum represents the United States in the civil forfeiture action.

Why Is The Hardest Hit Fund A Registered Trademark?

Why does the U.S. Treasury have a registered trademark on Hardest Hit Fund?

I just thought I would put that question out there in the universe because it looks like one of those "privatized" moves.

You know you can leverage intellectual property, right?

I wanted to file a trademark on Obamacare and put the money in a legal defense fund for "The Poors" (always said with clinched teeth), but was informed by House Judiciary "Legal Geniuses" (trademark pending) that one has to get authorization from the White House, first.

So far, I cannot seem to find that White House authorization.

Just saying.

Why Sessions Is Silent On FISAgate: DOJ Has Known Perkins Coie Sucks Since 2010

Image result for tattle tale
No one likes a tattle-tale leaker, particularly the DOJ.
Ok, I may need someone to clarify my interpretation of this ongoing case.

On second thought, probably not.

From what I have gathered, Twitter sued DOJ for not being able to tell a small group of its Twitter users that they were under FISA surveillance.

Oh, and Twitter was represented by the "Legal Geniuses" (trademark pending) over at Perkins Coie, who probably conspired with its defendants to let the Clinton, et al. crew know they were being sureveilled.

It is also my belief that someone, or perhaps more than just a someone from the FBI, leaked to the crew that they were being surveilled.

The "Legal Geniuses" (trademark pending) at Perkins Coie argue that the Espionage Act does not apply to their clients in disclosing if they are under investigation by saying that they have a First Amendment right of free speech to put out aggregate information on how many FISAs have been issued and claim it would be unconstitutional to prosecute them if they snitch, or rather, let their specific Twitter users know they are being surveilled for leaking national security information.

PRAYER FOR RELIEF

WHEREFORE, Twitter prays for the following relief: A. 

A declaratory judgment that: 
     i. FISA does not prohibit publication of Twitter’s draft Transparency Report with respect to FISA orders received or not received; 
     ii. Any interpretation of FISA that prohibits publication of the unredacted Transparency Report with respect to FISA orders received or not received is unconstitutional; 
     iii. The FISA secrecy provisions are facially unconstitutional under the First Amendment because they do not require nondisclosure orders to contain a defined duration; 
     iv. The FISA secrecy provisions are unconstitutional under the First Amendment as applied to Twitter; 
     v. FISA does not restrict reporting aggregate numbers of FISA orders received with no further detail concerning such orders; 
     vi. Any interpretation of FISA that prohibits reporting aggregate numbers of FISA orders received with no further detail concerning such orders is unconstitutional; and 
     vii. Prosecution of Twitter under the Espionage Act for disclosing the aggregate number of FISA orders it has received, if any, or any other information in its draft Transparency Report that has been redacted by Defendants, would be an unconstitutional violation of Twitter’s First Amendment rights.

Sessions has inherited the case and is now the named defendant.


But wait, the story gets better.

Remember when I first told everyone that #perkinscoiesucks?




Well, it may be very well possible the reason why certain Twitter users were being surveilled is because of their history of using Facebook for manipulating political campaign messaging and political campaign fundraising on behalf of the DNC, or shall I be more specific and just call it out as Clinton, et al.

Something tells me the approximately 250 Twitter users under FISA surveillance may just possibly hail from media outlets, defense contractors, any other political and personal, domestic & foreign, entities associated with Hillary Clinton, John Podesta, and the rest of her crew, including the "Legal Geniuses" (trademark pending) over there at Perkins Coie and certain persons over at the FBI, who are doing really naughty things that the DOJ and I do not like.

In summation, this is why former U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch and current U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions cannot say anything in public about FISAgate or the investigation of the 2016 election, because this entire investigation seems to have started in 2010, according to legal filings.

So, once again, the moral of the story is: "Do not be mean to my Sweetie, Period."
