No respect. Clearly NOT an occupier!

Clearly a SHILL.

Some of us care about the illegal foreclosures. Not as many threads as I thought when I sought to post this link but I have this one now that I can build on.

Feel free to add any actions, or news you find.

Thx

Many democrat shills on this site. Very few anarchists. A lot of president letter writing sellouts.

You are right to disregard the downvoting. You are a target for your steadfast support for the 99%. And no one can touch your point count.

Agree as are others.

They don't much comment on any threads related to real activism, and spend most of their time personally attacking certain people. including you.

Good luck.

Maybe this old story can excite you to support or at least comment on the home foreclosure crises that the 99% is still struggling with.

Join the week of action!!

One week.

In seven days, May 18th, hundreds of Home Defenders, underwater homeowners, and foreclosure fighters will be arriving in Washington for the Bringing Justice to Justice Week of Action.

It’s getting hectic around here, but I wanted to take a minute to give you a quick update on all the excitement. Tens of thousands of people have added their voice to petitions standing with the people taking dramatic action at the Department of Justice on Monday May 20th. Dozens and dozens of people are sharing their stories on the 100 Stories of What Wall Street Broke Tumblr and we’re really close to meeting our fundraising goal!

Can you help us reach the next level by sharing the Week of Action support petition on Facebook, or Twitter, or by sharing this email with five friends?

This past week we saw Wall Street bankers and their allies in Congress push for a partial repeal of the already limited Wall Street regulations. That just exposes how much influence Wall Street criminals can wield even as 25% of American homeowners remain underwater and over seven million families are in some stage of the foreclosure process. [1] .

This is exactly why hundreds of us are going to DC to demand the Obama Administration end the policy of “Too Big to Jail” and hold Wall Street criminals accountable for their greedy and reckless actions that led to the destruction of our economy.

You can help take our actions to the next level by sharing the Week of Action Petition on Twitter and Facebook or forwarding this email to five friends today!

There are so many ways people like you can get involved, and each of them will strengthen the impact of the Week of Action. You can share the petition or even join in the action by RSVP’ing here. Every action helps push the Administration to end “Too Big to Jail” and provide struggling homeowners with consequential relief and reforms.

It’s getting exciting! With your help the Week of Action is going to be huge.

In solidarity,

Brian Kettenring Executive Director, Action for the Common Good Campaign Director, Campaign for a Fair Settlement

One way one Community is fighting back:

http://itemlive.com/articles/2013/04/10/news/news04.txt

riginally Published on Wednesday, April 10, 2013 By Thor Jourgensen / The Daily Item LYNN — A newly minted city foreclosure mediation and prevention plan will probably face legal challenges from lenders, but Southern Essex Register of Deeds John L. O’Brien Jr. Tuesday dared banks to sue him over his pledge to enforce the ordinance.

O’Brien repeated a previous pledge to not record foreclosure deeds not accompanied by the mediation certificate required under the “homeowners bill of rights.”

“If they want to sue — come on in,” said O’Brien as more than 250 people crowding the Council Chamber stood and cheered.

But assistant city solicitor James Lamanna prior to the 11-0 vote in favor of the anti-foreclosure ordinance said he “anticipates legal challenges” to the measure.

Mayor Judith Flanagan Kennedy on Monday said she “has somewhat of a problem” with the ordinance, and said bank and mortgage company representatives have contacted city officials, raising concerns about the plan.

Kennedy is concerned the council plan imposes “an additional layer of regulation when the town next door doesn’t.” She said she will take the 10 days allowed under the City Charter to review the foreclosure proposal before deciding to sign or veto it.

“I have somewhat of a problem with Lynn developing its own banking regulations — that’s within the realm of the federal government,” she said.

City Council President Timothy Phelan and Ward 6 Councilor Peter Capano drafted the proposal, and more than two dozen advocates and other proposal supporters spoke in support of it, including Fearless Avenue resident Ellen Thomas, who told councilors she was foreclosed on in 2012.

“I thought I signed for a fixed rate. I found out it wasn’t so and I lost my home,” she said.

The ordinance requires lenders to sit down with homeowners facing foreclosure. A city-selected mediator would assist lender and homeowner in trying to reach a loan modification agreement and any foreclosure deed sent to the registry for recording.

The plan also includes provisions allowing homeowners to remain in their homes as renters and requirements aimed at ensuring banks and mortgage holders maintain property.

Massachusetts Bankers Association members “have reached out” to Lynn officials to discuss their concerns about their council plan, association senior vice president John Skarin said Tuesday.

Skarin said the Association wants Lynn and other communities to delay action on foreclosure prevention proposals and wait for a state task force to wrap up its foreclosure prevention study in December.

He said the council plan’s homeowner rental provision raises questions about how lenders are going to evict a homeowner if and when a home is sold to a new buyer. He said banks cannot lend in a business climate tempered by foreclosure and loan modification regulations that vary from city to city.

“How is anyone going to be able to keep up with that?” Skarin asked.

No bank or lender representatives spoke against the ordinance Tuesday night but St. Jean’s Credit Union chief executive David Surface spoke in support, noting that small, local lenders do their best to work with clients facing foreclosure. Surface said St. Jean’s has foreclosed on one homeowner in 15 years.

Kennedy on Tuesday said she is “thinking of following Springfield’s lead” in reviewing the “homeowners’ bill of rights.”

Springfield associate solicitor Thomas Moore said the city’s elected officials passed a foreclosure mediation proposal in 2011 because they did not think state and federal laws did enough to protect homeowners facing foreclosure.

The Springfield ordinance requires lenders to meet “face to face” with homeowners within 90 days after the owner receives a foreclosure notice. Failure to meet and mediate carries a $300 fine, but Springfield’s plan — unlike Lynn’s — does not require a foreclosure deed filing to include a mediation certificate.

Foreclosures help, not hurt, the economy. Real estate has bottomed out, and now has become stable. Now is the time to buy.

[-] 3 points by inclusionman (7064) 1 year ago

not so helpful for the decent hardworking Americans who were swindled by the criminal banksters with fraudulent loans, & illegal foreclosures.

That's not good is it!?

[+] -4 points by Perfectcast (-168) 1 year ago

Very few, if any, were swindled with fraud loans. People freely signed loan documents. If you weren't smart enough to understand the documents you were signing, you were foolish, and shouldn't be buying a risky investment such as real estate. There are tort lawyers on every street corner, and if they smelled fraud, especially against big deep pocket banks such as Bank America and Countrywide, you can bet there would have been class action lawsuits everywhere. The fact that no lawyers have taken up these easy cases tells us there isn't anything there.

[-] 3 points by gsw (2603) 1 year ago

Read the news. People were foreclosed on who were current on payments

FYI & a bump for the post

[-] -3 points by Perfectcast (-168) 1 year ago

Link? The last thing any bank wants to do is foreclose. The very last thing. They don't want a house on their balance sheet. They want a performing loan.

[-] -3 points by Perfectcast (-168) 1 year ago

2.4 million loans, 700 errors, which the banks corrected. And NO WHERE does it say they were current on their loans. So .001 % of loans had bank error, that's a pretty good error rate for any effort, and the errors were corrected, loans forgiven, and THIS is your basis?

Pretty flimsy.

[-] 2 points by inclusionman (7064) 1 year ago

"buyer beware"? I thought we renounced that dishonesty with the end of colonialism.

LOL

And there HAVE been many, many lawsuits against numerous banks for mortgage fraud, and illegal foreclosure. Where you been?

Heres a post that list a dozen at least.

[-] -3 points by Perfectcast (-168) 1 year ago

It's not buyer beware? People sign things they don't understand? Your link didn't have any lawsuits.

You seem to be making stuff up. A dozen lawsuits within some 2-3 million loans? That's widespread fraud?

No, it isn't.

[-] 2 points by inclusionman (7064) 1 year ago

A dozen lawsuits (& not done yet) on the thread I linked that covers as many banks and MILLIONS of loans.

Read through the thread, & don't respond until you have. I have no patience for dishonest anti people, pro bankster shills.
