Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from

Michael Redman would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

We thank all of you who read this site and who have helped make it one of the most popular sites on the internet regarding the foreclosure debacle caused by the biggest Ponzi scheme the world has ever seen which actually originated in the back rooms of the United States CONgress. is about the sharing of information and information is power. Power in the hands of the people. But people are needed to read and act. has some of the most active readers and motivators on the internet. We all just don’t talk about it on the internet, we take it to the “streets” and make things happen. So, thank you – all of you – who read this site, tell people about the site and who actively get involved in this fight.

I personally want to thank all of the members of the Tricounty Foreclosure Defense Attorneys who meet every month to try and make sense of what is going on in the courts and to discuss and devise strategies to fight back. Next year we hope to be introducing the readers of to the attorneys associated with the Tricounty Foreclosure Defense Group, which actually extends beyond the tricounty area.

Michael and I would also like to personally thank all the unsung hero’s in this fight against the banks, lenders, servicers, wall street, judges and the legislators who seek to take homes away from American Citizens without due process of law. There are many attorneys and others who are unknown to the readers of the this site and other sites who are the backbone of this fight. These attorneys and others do not have popular blogs or go around advertising their name but from the very beginning they have been the originators of many a good pleading, argument or strategy that have been used, implemented and even “ripped off” by many other attorneys. Frankly that is how foreclosure fraud fighters and defense attorneys have been able to build viable foreclosure defenses. We work together and share everything. So, thank you to all the warrior lawyers and foreclosure fraud fighters who are fighting the good fight, honestly, and with righteous anger.

Additionally we would like to thank all of the reports across the country, actually across the globe, that have begun to write about foreclosure fraud, fraudulent documents, robo-signers, robo-judges, robo-courts, robo-verifiers, technicalities (felonies), lender break-ins, securitization, and the injustices and loss of constitutional rights happening to American Homeowners nationwide. There are so many reporters who have come to our aid that we can not name them all, you all know who you are, and thank you. This is fraud well done and we, who are in this fight, need all of you reporters to assist in this fight. It will be the most important fight of our lifetimes. So, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! If you need anything just let us know. is here to help in any way we can.

Additionally we would like to wish a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of the bloggers/site owners out there who are the sources of many of the articles posted on this site. These blogs/sites are invaluable to winning this war. Thank you Lynn Szymoniak of Fraud Digest, Yves Smith of Naked Capitalism, Attorney Matt Weidner of Matt Weidner Law Blog, Michael Olenick from Legalprise, Neil Garfield of Livinglies, Tyler Durden at Zero Hedge, Jake Naumer at ForeclosureBlues, Matt Taibbi of Rolling Stone, Karl Denninger Market Ticker, Andy Kroll at Mother Jones, Dinsfl at Stop Foreclosure Fraud, Larry Rubinoff of Foreclosure Detonator, Jack Wright at MSFraud, Richard Zombeck at Shame the Banks, Everyone at the Implodometer, Rob Harrington and friends at Wamu Loan Fraud, Christine at Foreclosure Industry, Ellen Brown at Web of Debt, William Black and Randall Wray over at the Huffington Post, Abigail Field at Daily Finance, Mike Konczal at Rortybomb, David Dayan at Firedoglake, Dylan Ratigan at MSNBC, etc… Plus, a very special thank you and happy new year to a man that has been at this longer than all of us, Nye Lavalle. If we missed anyone, please forgive us… There are many many sites on the world wide web that are the sources of very good information. We try to bring the best to all the readers.

To the professors and scholars for all the work and thought you have put into this, Thank you! You bring so much credibility to the fight. This is so much more than just foreclosures… Again, thank you and Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year…

Oh, and one more thing, I would like to extend an extra, extra special, super thank you, mega Merry Christmas and Happy New Year x’s infinity to Lisa Epstein of Foreclosure Hamlet. Lisa Epstein and Michael Redman are – without a doubt – the duo that have changed the way most reporters, legislators, regulators, homeowners, attorneys and the general public view foreclosures, the banks/lenders and the judicial process. When you see Michael, Lisa is not far behind. When you see Lisa, Michael is sure to be there. The magazine, Florida Trend, has included their work in a series of stories which is a part of its 2010 Floridians of the Year! Not to mention their previous front page exposes’ in The Daily Business Review, Housing Meltdown Grassroots effort leads to attorney general probe, Mcclatchy, How 2 Civilian Sleuths Brought Foreclosure Problems to Light or The Washington Post, Florida Activists Read Between the Lines on Foreclosure Paperwork…

So, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone. Again, thank you for following and making it one of the most popular sites in this crisis on the web.

    Merry Chrismas and Happy New Year. You guys have all done a tremendous job here at this website. I could never have figured it all out without you guys. Your website has lead the way for me to find out the truth about a lot of things I would have never believed about this country and the people who run it. I hope that 2011 brings a much happier and much more prosperous New Year for everyone and a Nationwide Foreclosure Moratorium for all of the victims of Foreclosuregate. I will keep spreading the knowledge and sharing what I have learned here from you guys with everyone that I can.

    Back at ya Michael! Am so proud of all of you, but especially you and Lisa’s dogged determination. Am happy and blessed you each came into my life this year and can’t wait till the coming New Year when kick some more and bigger bank azz and start putting CEOs, lawyers, and even some judges in jail!

    God bless you and your family on this special night and may the New Year bring all Americans peace and peace of mind!

  4. Thank you ALL for being there when really needed. Your unselfish work and knowledge is greatly appreciated and will not go unnoticed! Together we CAN find the truth and, over time, redefine what real power is and where it comes from.

    “The truth over time equals real power”…this, a most fundamental and universal rule of dynamic and timeless knowledge. For those who don’t know this, there is still hope by allowing, with some deep thought, this possibility and understanding to expand and become part of everyone’s reality.

    Words cannot express my gratitude. May Lisa and Michael be blessed with wonderful tidings of good cheer.

  7. Fanfaron says:

    Thanks to both of you… however, as a layperson, my head is still spinning faster than an exorcism ever could. Perhaps this is what you have accomplished so far: AN EXORCISM. Get the devil out of government and keep him out. HA

    Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year 2011 to our Heroes Michael and Lisa from Florida. If it weren’t for them, we would not be where we are today with so much work accomplished by these duo Batman and Cat woman looking out for all of us from the villains of Fraudsters who had done the greatest damage to the American People and this country in the history of the world. Thank you Michael and Lisa, I would nominate you for your Nobel Prize if I could, for the best site ever put together by anyone in a long shot with so much valuable information and sharing the knowledge to all of us.
    Please keep up with the best fight and I will keep mine by educating the public and sharing the knowledge for the less unfortunates who don’t know how to fight back and don’t know how to defend themselves against these monsters.
    God Bless both of you and God Bless all of us!

    Happy Holiday’s to all and a happy New Year full of guilty verdicts on these criminals, who have stolen our homes, lives, and the American Dream . Their “manufactured consent ” of this is slowly being uncovered
    by the courageous efforts of those listed and others , Press On Regardless !

    Thank You All For All You Do !

  10. Merry Christmas to you, too, Michael, Carol, and everybody else who has been fighting to stop the mass fraud rotting our nation.

    I’ve been running some figures. Won’t go through the number in detail but, using some admittedly quick math, thanks to the work of the people in the post there are about 400,00 families — let’s say 550,000 children and another half million adults and elderly — who will be spending Christmas in their homes who wouldn’t otherwise be there. The figures are staggering; a small group has made an enormous difference, and it’s reflect in hard facts and figures.

    But now isn’t the time to rest; the scam artists and their supporters in government are beginning to fight back hard. We have to double our efforts; let’s make sure the whole world knows what happened, what is happening, and that with coordinated work we can end this; restore social, economic, and ethical equilibrium .. we can make a real difference.

    Please people; from every corner of the US — and for our international friends, from every corner of the globe — stop this nonsense. If you live in the US you’ve been ripped-off; even if you’re not in default, even if you’re a renter, you paid way more than you should have for housing thanks to a massive fraud. For our friends throughout the world we know that our government, no matter who leads it, isn’t exactly often likable. Trust us, we feel the same way (the butterfly ballot judges that appointed George Bush come from the same county that perfected the rocket docket). But we’re doing our best; please join us to actually make right win out over wrong.

    The US is a strange country; in good times we seem to be the very worst and in bad times the very best. These are extraordinarily bad times here. Organize in your neighborhood: contact anybody on the list above with an offer to help or a question about what’s happening. You can’t get the “wrong” person because we’re all connected; we’ll just send you to the one who focuses on what’s happening in your life, or your corner of the world. It sounds melodramatic but isn’t; we’re faced with an epic choice between good and evil, one that seldom comes along in most people’s lifetime. Choose good .. even if you have no debt, even if you’re rich, do the right thing and join us (if if you’re middle-class or poor it’s a no-brainer).

    Together we can and are making a real difference. When all this is over be able to tell your grandkids that you fought on the right side of history.

      Well stated and beautifully expressed.

      The “Powers That Be” should never underestimate the power of people united by a common cause, fueled by righteous anger and compassion for others.

      Let’s all hope and pray that 2011 will be the year in which we finally see the tide turn in favor of the people.

      Thanks for being a force for good!
