Help Jim and Lisa!
Our friends Jim and Lisa are under POLITICAL ATTACK and ongoing legal harassment by Sheriffs and State Attorneys even though they have done the RIGHT THING. They have been mislabeled as "sovereign citizens and are being subjected to malicious prosecution and barratry, leveling spurious charges of "Grand Theft of a House" CARRYING A SENTENCE OF 25 YEARS IN PRISON FOR A CRIME THEY DID NOT COMMIT! What they did was approved in writing by 2 attorneys, 2 sheriffs and a judge along the way, but with charges based on a fraudulent sworn summons and complaint, the State is still refusing to rescind their mistake and they continue to press forth with their political agenda, draining Jim and Lisa of all financial resources to stand their ground...
In other words, the Locals are refusing to rescind their mistake and continue to press forth with their political agenda and malicious prosecution.... WILL YOU PLEASE HELP JIM AND LISA?
I have personally known Jim and Lisa for many years, so allow me to give you my perspective on my two peace-loving friends. Jim and Lisa are both devoted servants of the Lord and good students of His Law. Jim has taught estate planning techniques, trust law and other workshops to help others legally minimize taxes and protect assets from liability for over a decade, as well as how to how to overcome institutionalized abuses by the banks against the People. Lisa is an honest woman who devoutly serves the Lord, and they both understand this government is ordained by God... yet in following the WORD OF GOD (the Bible pursuant to public law 97-280), the two of them have become subject to persecutions led by what the Bible calls the "Synagogue of Satan."
Between 2005 and 2012, Jim had suffered many losses through foreclosures, and nearly lost his life in a battle with cancer. Having been given a new lease on life from the Creator, Jim committed his life to doing the Lord's work and extracting himself from the commercial rat race. He realized that he had faced the adversity of many foreclosures to learn skills to help others. He saw that there were 9 million homeless people and 14.5 million abandoned houses, and realized the Lord had given him the knowledge to help cure both social ills by helping property owners beat foreclosures and protect their empty properties with tenants who can pay very small rents. With Lisa at his side, and the advice of an experienced foreclosure attorney to guide their legal process, they began putting the homeless into abandoned homes and helping the property owners from walking away empty handed without legal counsel. Apparently the banks and PTB don't appreciate their services to humanity.
In 2012, the owners of Lisa's condo decided to sell it and asked her to move out, and so Lisa was about to become one of the homeless. On her daily bike ride to Jim's house, she noticed a dilapidated, abandoned building along the way, so Jim and Lisa wrote letters to the owner of record to see how they might help. These letters were received and never got returned, so they turned to their attorney friend to see what could be done to help out. The attorney helped them draft up an Agreement for Possession and Tenancy, whereby Lisa would act as "temporary trustee" to live in the abandoned house, make it habitable and maintain it (with Jim's help), as well as cure the liens and abandoned utility bills at their own expense until someone asked them to leave. The attorney guided them on the procedure to enter the unlocked, abandoned house legally after sending the Agreement a certain amount of time, and Lisa then moved in and fulfilled her duties in the Agreement as tenant/trustee for the absent beneficiaries who apparently abandoned it until they returned.
Understand that NUMEROUS members of the legal community regarded this as a bonafide tenancy for over 2 years:
- the first attorney drafted the Agreement for Possession and Tenancy and guided them on the legal process to move in and fix the property;
- a second County Attorney reviewed the agreement and recognized Lisa as a tenant, allowing them to pay for the absentee owner's abandoned water bill and turn the water on in Lisa's name;
- the first attorney brought the Agreement into court and Judge Grube approved it, recognizing the validity of Lisa's tenancy and making her a defendant on the underlying foreclosure case with the first attorney representing her third-party interests;
- A year or so after moving in, two sheriffs came to the door to investigate a report from the bank of "squatters," and when they saw the Agreement and year-old water bill determined it was a civil matter, closing the investigation and instructing the bank that they needed to evict (they could have just asked them to leave).
(Just to recount, that's TWO attorneys, TWO sheriffs and ONE judge who all agree that the Agreement was valid, Lisa had a bonafide right to possession and tenancy, and that Jim and Lisa were doing things the right and lawful way.)
The two of them fixed that house up and made numerous improvements at their own expense and never asked for a dime from the absentee owners, making it a lovely home for Lisa in spite of the advanced decay and multiple infestations. Finally, in June of 2015, the foreclosure ended. The first and only request to surrender the use and benefit of the house was the Writ of Possession on the door, and Lisa and Jim left the property without delay or resistance.
A few months after peacefully moving out upon request, they both were arrested to face felony charges of Grand Theft regarding the house with the Local Authorities claiming neither had standing as a tenant to be in the house (contrary to the Judge's written order!) Since then, Lisa and Jim have dragged them into courtroom after courtroom, forced legal counsel upon them both, ignored all paperwork and evidence that would summarily discharge this matter, and are on a politically-motivated mission to imprison them both for a crime they did not commit.
WTF??? The court has on the record that Lisa had standing as a tenant, therefore, Jim, by virtue of being her confidant and life partner also had standing; and now with one swift statement, some private contractor acting under mere color of law can undo a court's determination, just because that determination got in the way of some apparent political motive?
And now, the same people are referring to Jim and Lisa as "sovereign citizens," which is oxymoronic, for how can one be a sovereign which knows none above him and at the same time be a citizen of which knows all above him? You see, in today's climate of induced fear and hatred, the term "sovereign citizen" is akin to "domestic terrorist," and since there is a war against terrorism, Jim and Lisa are now declared enemy combatants, not by Congress, but by a bunch of apparent Local Hitlers. I thought some people fought a SECOND WORLD WAR to stop this kind of abuse from happening?
Now, according to international law and military manuals (including AFM 27-10), once someone is declared an enemy combatant, then one is to surrender and ask for identification, clothes, shelter, food, etc. In good faith, they have tried surrendering to everyone from the local municipality all the way up to Governor Rick Scott, and were turned away by all of them with belligerence and apathy. Why is this NOT the case here? When Jim and Lisa went and followed the WORD OF GOD, the "LAW" turned them away!
Are we in the climate of anyone can declare anyone else an enemy combatant PRIVATELY without provocation, and then proceed to use the machinery of the system against that same one to bypass and circumvent the prohibitions within the Constitution and Declaration of Independence: GOVERNMENT ORDAINED BY GOD as declared within Romans 13? Sounds to me like the State's lawyers and attorneys are hiding the keys to the Kingdom and preventing others from entering.
Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers. (Luke 11:46)
Forgive my language, but this all sounds like a load of HORSESHIT. Is this what we have devolved into: playground bully antics of kicking sand into people faces and name calling all to instigate an after-school fight? Aren't these the acts and actions of sociopaths and psychopaths? Weren't we to leave these antics on the school yard when we grew up? Isn't it time we put away childish things and act like adults?/p>
When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. (1 Cor 13:11)
Do you agree? If so, then PLEASE DONATE what you can now to help get Jim and Lisa with their overwhelming legal expenses. So far, the State has drained them of over $20K and left their coffers empty. Those who know them also know that they both have helped and supported others selflessly and generously with their knowledge and assistance in our times of need, and now it is time we support THEM in their time of need. All your donations will go towards their Legal Defense Fund, and once we have approximately $25,000 we will stop taking donations. SO PLEASE DONATE NOW, AND GIVE GENEROUSLY.
Thank you very much.
- Friends of Jim and Lisa
We should all look to our hearts, that they may be cleansed and new-created; and while we attend to the great things of the law and of the gospel, we must not neglect the smallest matter God has appointed. When any wait to catch something out of our mouths, that they may insnare us, O Lord, give us thy prudence and thy patience, and disappoint their evil purposes. Furnish us with such meekness and patience that we may glory in reproaches, for Christ's sake, and that thy Holy Spirit may rest upon us. Amen.
