(BREAKING NEWS – OP-ED) —  The author of this post is a consultant to attorneys on matters involving chain of title, foreclosure matters and issues related to the system of “things”. This isn’t legal advice.  It’s the system’s way of telling you something’s wrong.

Glitch – yeah, sure!

This is the tip of the iceberg of liability for WFB, Citi, BofA, Chase and others who have very soft and porous balance sheets where liabilities are reported. Sure they have unreported trillions offshore, but the current reporting doesn’t come close to the actual liabilities of these predatory entities.
