Hysteria: behavior exhibiting overwhelming or unmanageable fear or emotional excess."

Here we are, Spring, 2020, and from all quarters, all at once, hysteria abounds....

Ocwen - Take Action for Those Harmed by Their Mortgage Servicer - Post Script to SHOW ME THE NOTE

Friday, April 21, 2017 - 11:05pm

It's been a long time since I sat down to write up a post. Mr. TF and the other regulars have simply done an amazing job and I just have been too busy in my day job to add to the excellent discussion.

But, just a day or so ago, I came across an article discussing how Ocwen, an infamously...

An Outrage!  But for Whose Benefit?

Tuesday, September 6, 2016 - 1:50pm

For-profit ITT Technical Institute shuts down, leaving 40,000 students in limbo, and adding 8,000 to the unemployment rolls. Oops, this was not the narrative that was supposed to happen.

This just in from zerohedge:

You Want Fries With That?

Thursday, August 4, 2016 - 1:45pm

Look, not to get all morbid or anything, but life comes at you, good and bad, and it is not always about Fibonacci retracements, options expiration, open interest and the FED. On the good side, we have our excellent proprietor, Mr. TF, celebrating a lifelong accomplishment, his 20th wedding...

The Walking Dead = Metaphor of the Failing Western Fiat Currency Scheme

Tuesday, May 31, 2016 - 11:48am

I’ll admit it. I love The Walking Dead. I even have some bobble heads of the characters that I picked up from Barnes and Noble. But, what is the fascination with the goo-oozing zombies, the apocalyptic US South, the certainty of doom and miserable, painful death haunting each character, every...

Our resident legal expert, California Lawyer, has taken time to completely annotate the legal documents surrounding the DeutscheBank civil settlements in the gold and silver price manipulation case. Please be sure to review this entire public thread.

Suing the FED for FRAUD - Is it Time?

Friday, March 11, 2016 - 7:30pm

So you read something on the internet about suing the FED for fraud, for debasing the currency, amounting to fraud and theft. And now, you want to sue them, right? What could go wrong . . . ?

Show Me the Note - California Supreme Court Update - Yvanova v. New Century Mortgage

Friday, February 26, 2016 - 11:50am

This is too important to not share. I found out about this last week, and wanted to get an update out there. But, there are absolute legal wizards on this who are far better and concise at stating the importance of this decision by the California Supreme Court, UPHOLDING the right of someone who claims their home was taken illegally by a shady bank that has no right to foreclose.

<This is a very important public post. Please read and forward.>

The Jackass Nails the Dollar Rise

Jim Willie is right once again. This concept is critical to grasp, as the unfolding events track his predictions exactly.

Banking Cartel, Fraud, and Antitrust - Where is the Enforcement Action?

Tuesday, November 17, 2015 - 10:58am

At some point, certainly, the concept cannot be lost on law enforcement officials that the banking cartel selling massive paper futures, naked or not, are perhaps violating the law. I say this somewhat in jest, because also at this point, there is clear evidence of the banking cartel taking massive, concentrated, short positions on the Comex, something the CFTC could, but won’t, do anything about.

Information Asymmetry

Tuesday, March 17, 2015 - 1:47am

Well lookey there! The lawyer pops up from the foxhole!

Recess is over. Time to get back to analysis.

Let us start with a most simple observation, and apply it to the many, important, global events unfolding seemingly every day. The concept is not radical. It is just the way...

William Cohan vs. Andrew Maguire - Some Thoughts

Thursday, October 2, 2014 - 12:37am

The best way to start this is to reference a post on tfmr from longtime contributor, Murphy, who posted this question from an article by JS Kim

“What do you think is going on in this dispute between Naylor-Leland/Maguire/Schnell and Cohan in which each party is accusing the other of killing the silver manipulation story?”

So, let us dig in a bit and hone our analysis, and try to reason to some sort of conclusion.

Kamala Harris Loses Second Amendment Case

I know its 9/11. But, for something different than a retrospective comment about this significant date, or risking opening up a discussion among us tin-foil wearing...

Just In: Acquittal - Real Fraudsters were the Banksters!

Wednesday, August 27, 2014 - 4:12pm

Real estate flippers avoided criminal conviction because they argued, and persuaded the jurors, that the REAL criminals were the banksters!! No way!!!

“In an unprecedented trial, four people charged with mortgage fraud were acquitted Friday by a jury in Sacramento federal court after defense attorneys argued the real culprits are the so-called victim lenders.”

Let’s do a little background.

What is the Real Danger?

Thursday, August 14, 2014 - 12:31am

Looking at today's headlines, whether mainstream press or alternatives such as zerohedge and the other terrific independent blogs, instantly creates an imminent sensation that the world is in turmoil, to say the least. No one can rationally debate that point. I write this following...

Figured it Out - Bail-Ins are for Amateurs

Thursday, August 7, 2014 - 12:29am

Fiat paper schemes always end with the currency devaluing to zero, worthless. Along the way, though, through the years, history teaches us that those in power, that is, those issuing the worthless colored paper, always resort to trickery, deceit, then war all in an effort to remain in power....

Futures Manipulation - Third Branch Getting Involved

Thursday, July 31, 2014 - 12:46am

Whether this is misplaced hope or a sign of good things to come is certainly anything but certain. Articles abound regarding recent lawsuits filed against CME and big banks, for example:

Jury Anger Displayed - The Public is Awake

Thursday, July 24, 2014 - 10:53am

As a follow-up to some earlier posts, this post brings into view the public perception component of the housing crisis, in real time, in a definitive, compelling manner.

Last week, in a quiet, bucolic part of this lovely state of California, the jury rendered a verdict in a predatory lending case.

Revolving Door? Shocking, Just Shocking . . .

Thursday, July 17, 2014 - 12:10am

Some wise folks have repeatedly told us that regulatory enforcement at the highest levels is compromised because of the constant flow of high-ranking government officials from positions of governmental power into the lofty, highly-paid perches of private employers who were once the subjects of regulation by those same folks.
