Wrongful repossession of a house

Second time for this to happen.  The powers that be say that there is nothing illegal going on, even though the woman lost everything.  Seems to me something should be done before we see a whole rash of such goings on.


A West Virginia woman is the latest victim of a wrongful home repossession. Nikki Bailey, of Logan, W.Va., returned home from visiting her best friend in the hospital to find all of her belongings gone.
As it turns out, an unidentified bank sent repo men to the wrong house, in the wrong town.

You can imagine Bailey’s surprise as her home was bought in full 25 years ago. The only things she was able to recover were a dresser, a chest of drawers and a mirror. Everything else she owns is gone.
“My Marshall [University] diplomas, my high school diplomas…all my pictures, my history — I was teacher of the year,” Bailey told WSAZ-TV. “All that stuff is gone.”

The home scheduled for repossession was reportedly located on Godby Heights. Bailey lives on Godby Street in Logan. Not only is there no Godby Heights in Logan, but the home that should have been repossessed was in Chapmanville, W.Va., another town about 10 miles away.
Bailey is currently in the middle of a horrendous legal process to get restitution for her stolen items, which is proving to be even more difficult because the repossession company won’t even say which bank authorized the repossession in the first place. It is unclear who made the terrible mistake, the bank or the repo company.
Kanawha County Prosecutor Mark Plants says there will be no criminal charges in the case because it was only an “accident,” like “taking someone’s luggage at the airport.” However, he said there will likely be some civil ramifications like money and restitution.
Unlike Plants’s analogy about airport luggage, the repossession company, CTM Industries, can’t simply return the woman’s property because they reportedly threw it in the dump.
As TheBlaze previously reported, the First National Bank in Wellston, Ohio, broke into Katie Barnett’s home and had her belongings wrongly repossessed. Though still an egregious mistake, the home they were looking for was only across the street — not in a different town.

At last..some refreshing news: Michigan Church Vindicated After Being Falsely Accused of Bailing Out a Child Molester

Michigan church embroiled in the controversial case of a teacher who molested an eighth grade student has hotly denied that it supported the pedophile, and has now been vindicated by court documents.

Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Rose City publicly and unequivocally disputed the victim’s family’s claim that it posted bail for the child molester, Neal Erickson, before he was sentenced to 15-30 years in prison in July.  The church’s congregation council released a statement saying they wish to make it known that “our congregation did NOT post his bail, nor were any church funds ever used to assist Mr. Erickson.”
And Gary Klacking, the Ogemaw County clerk, is backing up the church’s assertion.
Speaking with TheBlaze over the phone on Monday, Klacking said Toni Erickson, the former teacher’s wife, posted Erickson’s bond.  When asked if Erickson was in and out of jail — whether there may have been multiple people who helped to secure his temporary freedom — Klacking said this was the only time bond was posted.
“I looked at [the paperwork] this morning and she posted it,” Klacking said.  “I can tell you that for sure.”
He provided a copy of the bond sheet over email on Tuesday (TheBlaze has redacted sensitive information, like the Erickson’s home address and the victim’s first name):

The claims against the church drew national attention last week when the victim’s father, John Janczewski, asked Glenn Beck on radio if he could believe that on top of everything else, a church “literally half a mile” from their home bailed out the child molester from jail.
“Prince of Peace Church,” Janczewski identified it, his wife later adding that it is a Lutheran church.  “It’s just unbelievable.”
Glenn Beck and many of his listeners were understandably disgusted, and spoke out against the place of worship.
So how did the confusion happen?
TheBlaze spoke with the church’s pastor, Dan Stoneback, and asked if he had any idea why the family would believe his church aided the child molester.
Pastor Stoneback said he had “no idea…none whatsoever,” and that “no one was more shocked or more surprised” than he was at the claims.
When asked about the issue in light of the church’s denial, John Janczewski explained that the family has been under “so much stress” between the trial (and educators from the school requesting leniency for Erickson), their house being set on fire, his wife’s battle with cancer, and his own fight with multiple sclerosis that they can’t recall who told them the church posted Erickson’s bail.
The family is now squaring off against the local school board in Rose City over the continued employment of the teachers who requested leniency for Erickson.

Picking and choosing our morals

We passed a law stating that children can now use the opposite sex's restroom if they were transgendered.  "Cause this was the right of the child"

An inmate was granted hormonal replacement therapy while in prison, life without parole, mind you, last Sept.
see article here

Bradley Manning:

“I am Chelsea Manning.”
With those words, read from a statement on NBC’s “Today” on Thursday, Bradley Manning immediately shifted public conversation away from the Army private’s conviction on espionage charges to gender identity.
“As I transition into this next phase of my life, I want everyone to know the real me,” Manning said in the statement. “I am Chelsea Manning. I am a female. Given the way that I feel, and have felt since childhood, I want to begin hormone therapy as soon as possible. I hope that you will support me in this transition.”
While her supporters may back Manning, the Army said Thursday it won’t.

Funny how we can pick and choose when to apply rules that we set for society

Mich. School Votes to Keep Teachers Who Defended Colleague That Molested 8th Grader


The Blaze 


On Monday night the West Branch-Rose City school board voted not to fire a group of teachers who spoke out against the 15- to 30-year sentence a fellow teacher, Neal Erickson, received after molesting an eighth-grade boy.

“We believe the letters written by the teachers may be protected under First Amendment rights and that any disciplinary action will subject us to expensive, and potentially lengthy, lawsuits,” board President Jack Money read in a statement announcing the decision.
The victim’s mother, Lori Janczewski, told Glenn Beck on radio Tuesday that she actually could have lived with the knowledge that the teachers were still, ostensibly, caring for and educating other children had it not been for the way they defended the convicted child molester.
“They put at the bottom of their letters that there was no harm done to our son, he’s a straight‑A student,” Janczewski said.  “I can’t live with that,” she said. “They had no idea. And how dare they…”
Janczewski said when their son was around 13-years-old, when the molestation happened, their household became a “living hell,” and they had no idea why.
But they now know that on top of the sexual abuse, Erickson threatened their son that if he “said anything,” Janczewski would lose her job.  Janczewski worked in special education at same school as Erickson — and worked with the teachers who wrote letters of leniency for her son’s molester — adding: “At that time my husband was unemployed, so I was the only income.  That’s a lot for a 13-year-old to take in and handle.”
“If he [wasn't] affected by this at all…then why did [Neal Erickson] have to say, ‘You tell anybody and your parents are going to lose their job,’” Beck demanded in response to the teachers’ argument.  “Why did he have to threaten them? What is wrong with us?”
Janczewski said roughly 300 people came to the meeting Monday night, and there are about 2,000 students in the district.
She added that they “didn’t even listen” to what her 16-year-old daughter had to say, but during Erickson’s sentencing, a number of teachers and a member of the school board “walked past” them and went to sit with Erickson’s wife, without saying a word.
Beck and his co-hosts expressed shock that Erickson still has a wife, and were even more stunned to learn that she begged for mercy on Erickson’s behalf so her 6-year-old would still have a father.
“She wants this guy living in the house with her daughter who is six?” Beck asked.
Janczewski also gave more information about Erickson, saying he gave her son alcohol and “told him it was pop” years before the molestation, and it now looks like he was “grooming” him.
But one of the teachers wrote in her letter: “Neal has plead (sic) guilty for his one criminal offense but he is not a predator…This was an isolated incident. He understands the severity of his action and is sincere in his desire to make amends…”
Beck and Janczewski also discussed “the continual nightmare” of threats and attacks that have occurred since they started speaking out about the teachers.  Beck said his charity Mercury One will help rebuild their garage — which was set on fire in the middle of the night and could have killed them all if Lori’s husband hadn’t woken up — before adding that the fear of reprisal reminds him of the south in the 1950′s.
“Except it’s the teachers that are the members of the Klan, and it’s the people with power,” Beck added.  “Lori, if you ever want to move…I would guarantee we’d have a ton of listeners that would come over and help pack your truck and pack your house and welcome your family into a loving community. I’m not saying that your neighbors aren’t good, but I’m telling you there’s something wrong here…”
“When your town votes to stand with a pedophile, your town has lost its soul,” he said.

If you claim to be transgendered, a young man can use the same bathroom as a young female now

Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill into law Monday that would require schools to treat students according to their gender identity rather than their physical gender.
Assembly Bill 1266 was written by Tom Ammiano (D) San Francisco. It grants transgender students access to previously gender-specific facilities, like bathrooms and locker rooms, and activities.
The bill was passed by lawmakers in July, and was sent to Brown’s desk earlier this month.
AB 1266 is among 21 bills the governor signed Monday.

Coupons for abortions?

On Friday morning a controversial abortion clinic reopened in Orlando.

It's the same clinic that closed last month after its equipment was seized as a debt collection.

The asset seizure was over an unpaid $36 million medical malpractice judgment against former lead physician behind the clinic, James Pendergraft.

"It essentially put two abortion facilities out of business," Pendergraft said.

The clinic, Orlando Women's Center, is expected to provide abortion services seven days a week.

Pendergraft has been in the news before. He has lost his license five times in the Florida, most recently in April after he failed to pay another debt to the state of Florida for fines related to a former license suspension for an illegal third-trimester abortion.

The doctor has been accused of botched abortions and performing that illegal third-trimester abortion.

Pendergraft said he did not realize the woman was in her third trimester.

Pendergraft said the clinic had to borrow equipment because the previous equipment is still in possession of the sheriff's office.

He does not have his license but will reopen with six other physicians.

Pendergraft told Channel 9's Karla Ray that he is in the process of getting his license back and recovering the equipment that was taken.

"I've done nothing that I thought was inappropriate, illegal, immoral or wrong," said Pendergraft.

A number of protestors showed up at the clinic Friday morning.

Pendergraft said he fears for his life every day.

More than a dozen people were inside the waiting room Friday morning.

"Would you trust a doctor yourself who has lost his license five times?" Channel 9's Karla Ray asked Pendergraft.

"When you look at why I lost my license, it had nothing to do with anything I did wrong," Pendergraft said.

The state disagrees, along with protestors like Jon Barrows who sit outside the clinic every day.

"I just sit on this wall and I just worry about the people who come here," Barrows said.

He says in the past month he's counted more than a hundred people stop by the clinic and leave when the doors were locked.

And we wonder why God is angry?

Colin Powell denies affair after hacker leaks 'very personal' emails

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell is denying he had an extramarital affair with a Romanian diplomat, after an anonymous hacker threatened to release emails Powell acknowledged are "of a very personal nature," according to a report. reported Thursday that Powell first met Corina Cretu when she was an assistant to the president of Romania and he was serving as the nation's top diplomat in the George W. Bush administration.
In a statement sent to the website, Powell said, "After I left the Department of State in January 2005 we stayed in touch via email. I frequently gave her advice on the prospects of finding a position with the UN or other international organizations."
"Over time the emails became of a very personal nature, but did not result in an affair. Those types of emails ended a few years ago," Powell wrote. "There was no affair then and there is not one now. Over the past eight years I have seen Ms. Cretu once or twice when she came from Europe to attend group conferences in Washington. I have not seen her in several years, but we remain friends and are in touch."

Powell also acknowledged in an email to the Smoking Gun that he advised Cretu to purge her email of such correspondence.
"In light of what was happening, it seems obvious to ask Ms. Cretu to delete emails," Powell reportedly wrote.

Something's Brewing

Does anybody else find it strange that we are not only closing our extending the closure of our embassies until August 10th because of the threat of Al-Qaeda being a very serious because
CBS News reported Saturday that a team of operatives planning to carry out a major terror plot was “already in place.”

I'm very curious to know why Russia is docking in Cuba

Riddle me this

“What has existed in every country throughout history, yet is still considered abnormal?”

The Riddler (satan) has posed the question, but changed the word Abomination for Abnormal.

Do I believe that they should be beat up?  Not at all
Do I believe they should be tortured?  Absolutely not

The rights they are crying that they want, are really not what they want.  On the whole, they could care less if they were married,

Lesbian journalist, Masha Gessen.  On a radio show she actually admits that homosexual activists are lying about their radical political agenda.  She says that they don’t want to access the institution of marriage; they want to radically redefine and eventually eliminate it. 
Here is what she recently said on a radio interview:
“It’s a no-brainer that (homosexual activists) should have the right to marry, but I also think equally that it’s a no-brainer that the institution of marriage should not exist. …(F)ighting for gay marriage generally involves lying about what we are going to do with marriage when we get there — because we lie that the institution of marriage is not going to change, and that is a lie.
The institution of marriage is going to change, and it should change. And again, I don’t think it should exist. And I don’t like taking part in creating fictions about my life. That’s sort of not what I had in mind when I came out thirty years ago.
I have three kids who have five parents, more or less, and I don’t see why they shouldn’t have five parents legally… I met my new partner, and she had just had a baby, and that baby’s biological father is my brother, and my daughter’s biological father is a man who lives in Russia, and my adopted son also considers him his father. So the five parents break down into two groups of three… And really, I would like to live in a legal system that is capable of reflecting that reality, and I don’t think that’s compatible with the institution of marriage.”

Still it is okay to persecute Christians
It is still okay to torture them for their beliefs

Human Rights for all?
Not at all

Satan cares nothing for humans...nothing at all.
 The problem is, those who once believed in the Bible as being the ultimate authority, no longer do...

I was blow away by this article and I am not a Pat Robertson fan:

Pat Robertson On Transgender Community: 'I Don't Think There's Any Sin Associated With That' 


The 83-year-old televangelist sat down on Sunday for the "Bring It Online" advice portion of his Christian Broadcasting Network show, "The 700 Club." A viewer named David wrote in asking how he should refer to two transgender females who work in his office and have legally changed their genders. Instead of criticizing the trans individuals, Robertson approached the situation in a seemingly level-headed manner.
"I think there are men who are in a woman's body," he said. "It's very rare. But it's true -- or women that are in men's bodies -- and that they want a sex change. That is a very permanent thing, believe me, when you have certain body parts amputated and when you have shot up with various kinds of hormones. It's a radical procedure. I don't think there's any sin associated with that. I don't condemn somebody for doing that."
He went on to say he would "question the validity" of someone who just says, "Well I'm really a woman" because you "don't count somebody as female unless they really are, or male unless they really are."
When his co-host said the viewer doesn't know the intentions or medical history of his co-workers, Robertson rebutted, "It's not for you to decide or to judge."
The remarks from Robertson -- who has ranted about gays, Muslims and demons in Goodwill sweaters -- were applauded by various blogs.

This of course on the wake of the Pope announcing his own tolerance.

Romans 1: 21

21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

State Dept. Issues Travel Warning over Possible al-Qaida Threat


The State Department on Friday issued a travel alert for U.S. citizens about possible terrorist attacks in the Middle East and North Africa by al Qaeda and affiliated organizations.

The possible threat also led the U.S. to close embassies in key Middle East nations, including Egypt and Israel, as a precaution beginning Sunday, U.S. Rep. Ed Royce told CNN’s “New Day” on Friday.

On Thursday, a U.S. official not authorized to speak publicly about the matter called the threat “credible and serious.”

It was “directed at American targets overseas,” but may not be confined to main diplomatic facilities, the official said.

US to temporarily shut down embassies around the world Sunday amid security concerns

The United States will temporarily shut down its embassies and consulates around the world Sunday, including those in Iraq, Afghanistan and Egypt, as a precautionary measure, the State Department said Thursday.
State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf did not say how long the international installations would stay closed -- only that the decision was taken “out of an abundance of caution and care for our employees and others who may be visiting.”
Sunday is a normal workday in many Arab and Middle Eastern countries. Embassies in Europe and Latin America would be shuttered that day anyway.
“We have instructed all U.S. embassies and consulates that would have normally been open on Sunday to suspend operations, specifically on August 4,” a senior State Department official said Thursday night. “It is possible we may have additional days of closing as well.”
The issue of security abroad has been prominent in Congress since attacks on U.S. diplomatic outposts in Egypt and Libya.
