American Independence Hour hosted by Alfred Adask; 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM Central time, Tuesday nights, on AmericanVoiceRadio.com and also on the KU band, free-to-air satellite link at Galaxy 19. There’ll be call-ins at 1-800-596-8191Donna Lee was on my radio show about five months ago. She talked in part about her experiences in fighting against government in general and foreclosure in particular.
Yesterday, we talked briefly and she seemed to have some new insights. I asked if she wanted to be on the radio show again. She declined but she recommended I interview a man who goes by the name of “Boris” and whom she described as a “genius”. Donna told me that he’s had had some remarkable success in dealing with a mortgage and also in a couple of other legal issues.
I called “Boris” with a certain amounts of skepticism. I know a lot of people who are highly recommended but can’t talk well enough to be on radio. I presumed that “Boris” would fit into that status.
I now believe I was mistaken. “Boris” (not his real name, and I don’t know what his real name is) is extremely articulate, intelligent and well-spoken. In fact, he’s so “well-spoken” that I can’t keep up with about two-thirds of what he says. His “legal theory” involves the law, spirituality, philosophy and even a kind of “mysticism” (that’s my description; not his) that’s based in part on clues he’s picked from a couple of motion pictures and even a Bugs Bunny cartoon. His total theory is “eclectic”. It relies on information from a wide and surprising variety of sources.
However, in general, he seems to be believe that the whole system is based on military law. His theory focuses on elements of the Lieber Code, admirality, the 1907 Hague Convention, etc.
More, he uses a number of words that are largely unfamiliar to me such as “usufruct” and “usufructuary”—which I, for now, suppose to be roughly synonymous with “res” and “beneficiary” in trust law—but which he seems to think are far more powerful.
If I can’t follow two-thirds of “Boris’s” theory, I can still follow (pretty much) about one-third of his theory; that third is very similar to some of my own peculiar beliefs although we use different vocabularies to express similar ideas.
So, barring the unforeseen, I’ll be interviewing “Boris” (someone whom I can’t even identify) on my radio show tonight. It should be interesting. It may be odd. It will possibly be difficult to understand.
However, so far as I can tell, “Boris” isn’t hustling for money. If you were intrigued by his radio interview tonight and wanted to reach him, I don’t know that you’ll be able to do so. Therefore, while I recognize that the worker is worthy of his hire, it appears that “Boris” isn’t trying make a fast buck off his information.
While I might not understand or agree with a third of Boris’s opinions, it nevertheless appears that he’s stumbled onto some knowledge and he makes his information freely available on his website at http://www.iamsomedude.com/ and provides a free PDF file of the paperwork used in his one clear foreclosure victory at: mortgage_discharged_Redacted. Because his information is freely available, I don’t doubt his sincerity.
So far as I can tell, Boris isn’t hustling. He’s intelligent and articulate. And he knows something “special”—even if it’s hard to follow his eclectic line of reasoning. That doesn’t mean that his knowledge is any more perfect than mine or yours. It may be that, by the time tonight’s interview is over, I may be convinced that half of Boris’s knowledge is non-sense but the other half may be genius. And who knows—by the time the interview is over, I might come to believe that 90% of his knowledge is genius.
So, if you’re interested and intrigued, Boris is scheduled to be on my radio show tonight (Tuesday, February 25th). I hope you’ll tune in.
P.S., because Boris uses a number of words in ways that strike me as “original,” I asked him to list and define some of those key words. Here’s the list he provided:
BAIL transitive verb; to deliver (personal property) in trust to another for a special purpose and for a limited period
BERTH, n. [from the root of bear.]
1.A station in which a ship rides at anchor, comprehending the space in which she ranges. In more familiar usage, the word signifies any situation or place, where a vessel lies or can lie, whether at anchor or at a wharf.
2.A room or apartment in a ship, where a number of officers or men mess and reside.
3.The box or place for sleeping at the sides of a cabin; the place for a hammoc, or a repository for chests, &c.
To berth, in seamen’s language, is to allot to each man a place for his hammoc.
BAILOR “person who delivers personal property to another to be held in bailment- the one who places the thing in trust.” 27 S.E. 487, 488. The bailor need not be the owner of the property involved.
BAILMENT “delivery of personal property in trust,” 277 S.W. 2d 695, 698; “delivery of a thing in trust for some special object or purpose and upon a contract, express or implied, to conform with the object or purpose of the trust,” 75 S.W. 2d 761, 764; also, that relationship which arises where one delivers property to another to keep for hire, and control and possession of the property passes to the keeper or bailee. 108 A. 2d 168, 170. “An express agreement between the parties is not always necessary. The element of lawful possession, however created, and the duty to account for the article as the property of another is sufficient,” 351 P. 2d 840, 842; e.g., the finder of mislaid property becomes a bailee thereof.
Bailment is ended when its purpose has been achieved, when the parties agree that it is terminated, or when the bailed property is destroyed. A bailment created for an indefinite period is terminable at will by either party, as long as the other party receives due notice of the intended termination. Once a bailment ends, the bailee must return the property to the bailor or possibly be liable for conversion.
CHATTEL: an item of tangible movable or immovable property except real estate and things (as buildings) connected with real property
Hence the NAME (ESTATE) is PLEDGED as BAIL and used as CHATTEL.
1a : a bailment of a chattel as security for a debt or other obligation without involving transfer of title
b : the chattel so delivered
c : the contract incidental to such a bailment
2a : the state of being held as a security or guaranty
b : something given as security for the performance of an act
SURRENDER, estates, conveyancing.
1.A yielding up of an estate for life or years to him who has an immediate estate in reversion or remainder, by which the lesser estate is merged in the greater by mutual agreement, Co. Litt. 337, b.
2.A surrender is of a nature directly opposite to a release; for, as the latter operates by the greater estate descending upon the less, the former is the falling of a less estate into a greater, by deed. A surrender immediately divests the estate of the surrenderer, aud vests it in the surrenderee, even without the assent (q. v.) of the latter. Touchs. 300, 301.
3.The technical and proper words of this conveyance are, surrender and yield up; but any form of words; by which the intention. of the parties is sufficiently manifested, will operate as a surrender, Perk. _607; 1 Term Rep. 441; Com. Dig. Surrender, A.
4.The surrender may be express or implied. The latter is when an estate, incompatible with the existing estate, is accepted or the lessee takes a new lease of the same lands. 16 Johns. Rep. 28; 2 Wils. 26; 1 Barn. & A. 50; 2 Barn. & A. 119; 5 Taunt. 518, and see 6 East, R. 86; 9 Barn. & Cr. 288 7 Watts, R. 128. Vide, generally, Cruise, Dig. tit. 32, c. 7; Com. Dig. h. t.; Vin. Ab. h. t.; 4 Kent, Com. 102; Nels. Ab. h. t.; Rolle’s Ab. h. t. 11 East, R. 317, n.
5.The deed or instrument by which a surrender is made, is also called a surrender. For the law of presumption of surrenders, see Math. on Pres. ch. 13, p. 236; Addis. on Contr. 658-661.
The right of enjoying a thing, the property of which is vested in another, and to draw from the same all the profit, utility and advantage which it may produce, provided it be without altering the substance of the thing.
One who has the right and enjoyment of an usufruct.
The duties of the usufructuary are,
1. To make an inventory of the things subject to the usufruct, in the presence of those having an interest in them.(The certificate of live birth / birth certificate)
2. To give security for their restitution; when the usufruct shall be at an end. (Promise to pay: contract under seal = state as usufrucut)
3. To take good care of the things subject to the usufruct.
4. To pay all taxes, and claims which arise while the thing is in his possession, as a ground-rent.
5. To keep the thing in repair at his own expense.
1.The state of being a vassal or feudatory.
2.Political servitude; dependence; subjection; slavery. The Greeks were long held in vassalage by the Turks.
