Understanding the Due Process Consequences of Entering a Plea

This bears repeating… and repeating… and repeating again…. I guess telling you that you NEVER enter a plea under ANY circumstances after you have opened your mouth and done so would be just a bit late and useless at this point, but it’s a fact nonetheless. By opening your mouth and entering a plea, you have royally screwed yourself by doing that one not-so-little thing. In the future, NEVER sign ANYTHING that is put in front of you in these cases, and NEVER enter a plea. However, that is NOT to be construed as being the same thing as REFUSING to enter a plea, because we NEVER do that either. So, let’s say you’ve been [falsely] accused of committing a “transportation” offense by some improperly informed, improperly educated, and improperly trained authoritarian statist funded robot that seized you at your liberty and held you in an unreasonable custodial arrest without a proper warrant of arrest or any articulable probable cause just so that s/he could issue you a “[un]uniform traffic citation” that you must now deal with. The citation tells you that you must appear on some future date and time before some particular magistrate presiding over some particular court named on the citation that allegedly has jurisdiction of the offense. Although, it should be clear to anyone that can read and comprehend constitutional language and principles that it is a direct violation of the separation of powers provision of Article 2 of the states Constitution and Penal Code Sec. 32.48 for a municipal or state police officer to issue an ‘order’ via a “transportation” citation that simulates a legal process such as a subpoena or summons. The basis for asserting that it’s a violation of the separation of powers and the law is that both municipal and state police officers are executive branch functionaries and agents, and the issuance of a summons or subpoena having the legal force of a full-fledged judicial order requiring an individual’s compliance is entirely a judicial branch power and function, which executive officers are constitutionally forbidden to exercise. When you eventually appear at the court named in the paperwork that accompanied the citation “on or before” the appointed date and time, as that phrase is typically printed on most of these citations, the magistrate is required by the Code of Criminal Procedure to perform the duties imposed upon him/her by Art. 15.17[5] of that code. And s/he is required to do so in... read more

How Does Nobody Go to Jail in Wells Fargo Fraud Case?

Wells Fargo has agreed to pay a $190 million settlement to the federal government after it admitted that thousands of employees opened fraudulent and unauthorized accounts for customers. So the big question is how does no one go to jail for this? Wells Fargo is paying this massive $190 million fine and has fired 5,300 employees. So what was taking place? In two words: massive fraud. 1.5 million checking accounts and over half a million credit cards of fake accounts were set up using real customers’ names in order for more than 5,000 employees to hit lofty sales goals. In addition to the fact that they were overcharged overdraft and maintenance fees, some customers also dealt with significant hits to their credit scores as a result of not staying current on accounts they didn’t even know they had. Since 2011, Wells Fargo says $2.6 million has been refunded to customers, who received an average of $25. Out of the $190 million fine, only $5 million will go to victims. The remaining $185 million will go to the federal government. Wells Fargo has also said that firings included managers, and that it was making investments “in enhanced team-member training and monitoring and controls.” So how is it that while employees lose their jobs, nobody goes to jail? I want you to look at this definition: identity theft is “the fraudulent acquisition and use of a person’s private identifying information, usually for financial gain.” So the question: is that what took place? Using a person or customer’s identifying information in order to set up an account they did not request or want in order to hit sales goals or financial gain? That is exactly what was happening here, and that is the exact definition of identity theft. Under federal law, let alone additional state laws, identity theft carries a penalty of up to 15 years in prison as well as substantial fines. In Wells Fargo’s case no one is going to jail— and the fine is not substantial. The $190 million is just over 3% of the $5.6 billion in revenue that Wells Fargo pulled in for just the second quarter of this year. What you need to know is that when Wells Fargo agreed to pay this pittance of a fine, the government also agreed to something else. It gave the bank immunity for any uncovered crimes that may have taken place during this same time period. So in short:... read more

Banks Are Scamming You! Elizabeth Warren’s epic takedown of Wells Fargo CEO.

Elizabeth Warren unleashed a verbal barrage at Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf on Tuesday, calling the embattled bank boss “gutless” and demanding he step down. “You should resign…You should be criminally investigated,” Warren told Stumpf during a fiery one-sided exchange at the Senate Banking Committee’s Wells Fargo hearing. Warren, a vocal critic of big banks like Wells Fargo, demanded both the Department of Justice and SEC criminally investigate Stumpf for his “gutless leadership.” Last week, a U.S. official told CNN that the DOJ has issued subpoenas to Wells Fargo. Stumpf’s personal holdings of Wells Fargo stock increased by more than $200 million while the fake accounts “scam” was going on, thanks in part to the bank’s success in selling tons of products to customers that they didn’t need and create accounts without their knowledge. Are you awake... read more

Do You Think Our Founders Understood Tyranny? Questions is… Do you?

Today, in 1787 at the Constitutional Convention, George Mason asked a rhetorical question. Are we so naive as to believe that if the federal government becomes tyrannical it will propose amendments to restrain its own tyranny? There was no debate. Our Founding Fathers–men who challenged everything–unanimously added Article V to the U.S. Constitution, giving states authority to call a Convention of States to propose amendments. Today, 229 years later, we face the same dire circumstances they predicted. Our national debt is astronomical. The Supreme Court legislates from the bench. Unelected bureaucrats pass laws that impact millions. And the list of abuses go on and on… Electing a new president won’t solve the problem. Electing them same people into office and giving them career jobs won’t solve the problem. Voting and begging for our freedoms won’t solve the problem. The fact is, every single president in American history has expanded federal power. Calvin Coolidge is the only exception. It’s time to recognize what the Founders knew without debate–the American people are solely capable of restraining D.C. and should. It’s our responsibility to call an Article V Convention of States to save the nation. It’s our responsibility to bring America back to it’s glory. Are you awake... read more

Banks & Government Are Just Outright Stealing People’s Money

Centuries ago banks actually stored real money (gold) and gave their customers paper receipts which made transferring and transporting easier. Then as time went by, banks just began storing currency. Unbacked fiat paper is not money. In those days the term “bank robbery” used to mean a man with a gun would come in and steal the currency from the bank. Now, in the 21st century, the term “bank robbery” has a completely different meaning. Now, to quote the popular Russian turn of phrase, bank robs you! What occurred in Cyprus in 2013, was the most overt form of daylight robbery. Over the weekend the banks closed and upon reopening, anyone with substantial funds had approximately 50% less than they previously owned. Now, banks like Wells Fargo, are just outright defrauding and stealing from people! Over the past week, the swindlers at Wells Fargo’s were caught engaging in questionable and illegal activity yet again and consequently their stock’s value has suffered. The shares took a dip as globalist Warren Buffet’s favorite bank, was fined $185 million for a series of fraudulent actions. Since 2011, bank employees have opened 1.5 million bank accounts and “applied” for 565,000 credit cards as well as opened false email accounts – none of which were authorized by their customers. Part of the fraud lies in the fact that these shady bank workers were transferring funds from their customers existing accounts into the newly created accounts unbeknownst to them, resulting in overdraft fees for insufficient funds in some cases. According to the New York Times, the bank’s employees were incentivized to partake in this illegal activity by compensation policies that rewarded them for opening new accounts. And since bankers never go to prison in the USSA, they must have figured, why not give it a shot? After all, the US is nothing like Iceland which jailed 29 banksters for their role in the 2008 crash. The director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau or CFPB, (the agency presiding over the fining) Richard Cordray, made a statement saying in part that “unchecked incentives can lead to serious consumer harm and that is what happened here.” Of course the irony of this fiasco is in the fact that the CFPB is part of the largest organized crime syndicate in the world, the United States government. Not only do these thugs steal around around $2 trillion dollars a year from their tax slaves, but the Pentagram also recently... read more
