The Nick and Donna Nickerson Family

Our family is fighting back against a wrongful foreclosure and fraudulent assault on our entire financial portfolio because it is the right thing to do. We are being punished and persecuted for loving and serving God and others. We have appealed to the judicial system, public authorities, even frontline liberty groups, but have found no relief, no justice, no one willing or able to stand up to the big banks. Many sacrificed and gave their lives to give us the freedoms we have in America, and we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain. Holding onto and preserving our freedoms is something those who have gone before, and those who will come after us, call each of us to do. We do not know how or where this journey will end for us, or America, but In God We Trust.
Will You Take A Stand For Justice?
Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are.
Benjamin Franklin

No more excuses.
Do the right thing.

Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin. James 4:17

The Nickerson Family Has Made An Appeal To Heaven.

An Appeal To Heaven

...where the body of the people, or any single man, is deprived of their right, or is under the exercise of a power without right, and have no appeal on earth, then they have a liberty to appeal to heaven, whenever they judge the cause of sufficient moment.
John Locke

Resistance to tyranny becomes the Christian and social duty of each individual... Continue steadfast, and with a proper sense of your dependence on God, nobly defend those rights which heaven gave, and no man ought to take from us.
Congress of Massachusetts,
Provincial 1774

For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know Whom I have believed, and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed unto Him against that day.
2 Timothy 1:12

Our faith, hope, trust, and strength is in God. Where will your faith, hope, trust, and strength come from when it happens to you?

Welcome To It Happened To Us The Nick and Donna Nickerson Family

It Happened To Us - Isaiah 26:9 - Nickerson Hilltop Campfire
We are the Nick and Donna Nickerson Family. This is our story of truth being quashed; persecution being maliciously pursued; and perseverance being sustained through family, faith and God's Grace. Our home and entire financial portfolio have been under attack for around a decade without cause, right, or lawful authority. This attack began at our Idaho ranch, then expanded to include our Montana home and our entire financial portfolio. We did nothing wrong to warrant or justify this attack. This is not a money, lost wages, upside down equity, default, or failure to pay issue. This is not an imminent domain or tax situation. This is not the result of an unapproved loan modification. This is mortgage theft, life savings extortion, persecution of Christians, and a targeted attack on American citizens. This is mortgage terrorism. The problem is if it happened to us, it can happen to you, just like it has to millions of others. People often ask why we are still in the battle after all these years? We did and are doing something many could not, would not, or did not. We kept fighting. We pled with the banks and their accomplices to stop their abuse. We refused to surrender to unlawful seizure and extortion. We told them this is our home; we want to keep it; we have, and have always had, the wherewithal to keep it, and we will fight to keep it. They attacked us on every front. We called for help, but no one came. No one stepped forward to enforce the laws that could shield our family and end the abuse. Instead, the laws in place to stop this attack were silenced by those entrusted to protect, uphold, and preserve them. We watched as justice died not only on our street, but on millions of streets across America. Justice promised for all, which includes our family, the Nick and Donna Nickerson family, has been and is being held hostage by foreign and domestic enemies right here in our own homeland. Our freedoms, granted to us as natural born citizens, have been imprisoned and nullified by the crippling fear of those afraid to stand against organized crime and take on the Big Banks. Now, the unthinkable has happened. Our family has been held at gunpoint while our ranch and personal belongings were seized. We were unlawfully detained in the State of Idaho in an unauthorized, unlawful, unConstitutional, and unAmerican seizure. No warrant, court order, service of eviction or ejectment. We were just in our home rightfully and legally, getting ready to sit down for a late breakfast, had hung our American flag that morning, and had no idea we, or our ranch, were in jeopardy of an armed invasion by our fellow American citizens.

President Ronald Reagan once warned, Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. The only way they can inherit the freedom we have known is if we fight for it, protect it, defend it, and then hand it to them with the well fought lessons of how they in their lifetime must do the same. And if you and I don't do this, then you and I may well spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it once was like in America when men were free.

The freedoms we once enjoyed in America - religious freedom, property rights, due process - are being stripped from us one by one. This is happening because all it takes for evil to prosper is for good men to do nothing. Justice demands we, all of us who still believe in truth, justice, and the American way, act quickly to restore and preserve law, order and fair play. The time has come for all good men and women to stand and and make a difference. Join the fight for justice and against injustice in the war raging across our land.

What happened to us can happen to you. Since it is happening to us, it is happening to you.

Idaho Ranch RAIDED by the police powers of the State of Idaho without authority, cause, right, or lawful authority.

It Happened To Us - Idaho Ranch Invasion and Raid
Prayer Vigil and Watch - Day 78

January 28, 2020 - Hired gunmen are blocking us from returning to our ranch. Our personal belongings are being burned, damaged, stolen, and hauled to dumps while we are begging to have them back. Crimes are being committed. Members of our family continue to act as watchmen on a hillside above our ranch. When will someone stop the abuse?

The State of Idaho raided our private property without lawful authority using the police powers of the State. Such acts set dangerous precedents for all Americans. We were irrefutably in rightful and lawful possession of our property on November 12, 2019. An appeal to reverse all underlying foreclosure summary judgments was in place. No notice of ejection or eviction efforts had been served or noticed. All previous efforts had been retracted on September 3, 2019. No lawful or binding sale of our property had occurred. No enforceable Sheriff's Deed had been signed. Our rights to a redemption period had been denied by judicial error. Legal chicanery, civil racketeering, collusion, and crony capitalism had nullified all previous appeal efforts. The local sheriff had given his word and granted personal and professional promises no one would enter our property and no eviction or ejectment efforts would commence without his communicating and working with us. We were promised opportunity to retain possession of our property and belongings by the sheriff and the law. He had promised a minimum of three to four weeks to pursue a stay pending appeal, remove our personal belongings, or pursue other judicial relief if the banks initiated further actions. He lied, betrayed us, and lured us away from our private property on November 12, 2019. Then, with excessive police force, he invaded, raided, and attacked our private property, and seized over five moving trucks of personal belongings. Much removed was destroyed. Items remaining on the ranch have been burned, damaged, stolen, and thrown away. No judgments against our possessions exist. Armed gunmen, who are blocking and preventing us from returning to our property, are violating, devaluing, and rendering our property rights, years of agricultural development, and American birthrights non-existent. Day by day more damages, injuries, and losses are suffered. If this can happen to us, it can happen to you. We are holding a prayer vigil and acting as watchmen on a hilltop above our ranch. Daily updates are being posted.

What will you do when the Constitution is revoked?
Our family is preparing federal civil and regulatory complaints. Time constraints and limited internet are creating logistical challenges with posting updates, documentation, and responding to emails and phone calls. We appreciate your prayers, support, and ideas. We are standing in prayer with those of you who are sharing your stories with us. Please know we want to connect with you and help in any way we can. We will reach out as soon as we are free to do so. Please pray and stand with us by helping spread awareness. We need to show the Big banks and racketeered public officials the world is watching.

Montana Home and Ranch Update

It Happened To Us - Isaiah 26:9 - Nickerson Hilltop Campfire
January 28, 2020 - We still have possession.
Tomorrow, January 29, 2020, the value, personal worth, significance, and purpose of our American citizenship are scheduled to be annulled, stripped and revoked on the Lewis and Clark County courthouse steps. Pray!

We are still in possession of our Montana home and ranch. We are the only rightful and lawful owners. We made our payments. We did not fail to meet our obligations. A wrongful foreclosure summary judgment was granted on January 22, 2015, received on January 23, 2015, and remanded by the Montana Supreme Court on May 3, 2016. The remand was a win for us to conduct discovery and present evidence. Wells Fargo refused to work with us, give us our account records, or let their employees testify. District Court Judge Mike Menahan blocked and quashed all further discovery attempts to make them, ignored
sworn witness testimony, and caused his previous summary judgment in favor of the bank to be prejudicially affirmed on August 22, 2017. The banks have provided no account records to show we defaulted. HSBC does not have standing to foreclose and has denied involvement in the foreclosure in writing. Nonetheless... A public auction of our Montana Ranch has been scheduled for January 29, 2020. We are asking America to help us stop the unlawful seizure of our Montana home and end this targeted assault on our family once and for all. Pray and share our story.

Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. and HSBC Bank (Hongkong Shanghai Banking Corporation) are stealing our ranch as a punishment for fighting back to save our Idaho Ministry Ranch. JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo are trying to prove to us they are the ones running this country and that we have to submit to their persecution or endure the consequences. This is NOT a foreclosure or eviction. This IS mortgage terrorism. If they can do it to us, they can do it to you.
Read Our Story Montana to find out how Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. turned on another one of their customers and how our family, the Nick and Donna Nickerson Family, is fighting back.

It Happened To Us - Nickerson Family Idaho Ranch Invasion
It Happened To Us. It Can Happen To You.
Our Idaho Ranch was invaded without warrant or notice on Tuesday, November 12, 2019.

On Tuesday, November 12, 2019, Chris Goetz, acting personally and as the sheriff of Clearwater County, Idaho, led an unlawful and unauthorized armed invasion and raid of our Idaho Ranch without warrant or notice. Police powers of the State of Idaho and hired guns from JPMorgan Chase ambushed our private property without cause, right, or lawful authority. Even though no judgment against our personal belongings exists, five moving trucks worth of personal belongings were seized, concealed and moved hours from us in a SWAT style raid. Our personal belongings were transported multiple times in inclement winter weather and pillaged in post-move inventories that have never been produced or explained. Ultimately, items not stolen were crammed into two separate storage units across state lines in Washington. Much was damaged, broken, and destroyed. All was violated.
See documentation on the Idaho theft, vandalism, and acts of mortgage terrorism. Personal property and agricultural interests still on the ranch are being placed at great risk and in jeopardy. Armed guards hired by JPMorgan Chase, threats of violence, and unlawful detainer continue to hold our ranch and personal interests hostage. These guards are stealing, damaging, burning and throwing our possessions away. No one from the bank, law firms, property management groups, or other agents have been willing to help or assist. Idaho brutally stripped us of our physical possession and has refused any further involvement other than to threat to throw us in jail if we called them.

Law enforcement officers, acting as armed invaders on behalf of a private corporation, broke and violated common, county, state, federal, and international laws and regulations in entering and seizing our property without a warrant and outside the authority of any existing court order. Those sworn to uphold the Constitution committed violent and terroristic crimes against our family, Idaho property rights, due process, religious freedoms, and humanity. This was yet another grave miscarriage of justice in a years long malicious targeted assault and persecution of our family, not a foreclosure, eviction or ejectment action. On the morning of the raid, an appeal was in place, and our judicial rights of relief, redress, and restitution were not exhausted. We had not been noticed or served that we should or needed to leave the property. All previous orders had been retracted. Legally, morally, and ethically, we were in rightful possession. Sheriff Chris Goetz had provided his word and personal assurances, no ejectment or eviction actions were in effect. No writ, order, or instructions authorized Idaho law enforcement to seize our property and forcefully remove us from our property without causing us opportunity to remove our persons and personal belongings first. Someone got to Clearwater County Sheriff Chris Goetz. Something very corrupt and illegal is going on here in Orofino, Idaho. This entire situation and all parties involved and those who participated need to be federally and internationally investigated and charged for fraud, corruption, civil conspiracy, racketeering, bribery, threats, crimes against humanity, and other such criminal acts. We are standing our ground as lights on a hill above our ranch. Even though we were held hostage in a restricted viewing area, pictures, videos, and audio capture some of the excessive police force used. More details on the raid will be provided as we are able. Eyewitness accounts detail and corroborate what happened to us during this armed invasion. What is happening is unlawful, unConstitutional and unAmerican. Yet, no one with the authority to stop this assault has stepped forward. What happened to us demands every American and international watchdog agency pause and ask themselves, Is this okay with you? If it can happen to us in America, when we did no wrong, when no warrant has been issued, and when no trial, by jury or otherwise, has occurred, it could happen to you whoever and wherever you are. Our fellow country men rose up against us and acted as triers of fact and terrorists of the peace. They just followed orders when they revoked our Constitutional rights with assault rifles and slanderous accusations. They attacked us without right and outside the authority of the law. These are all irrefutable and provable facts. From the beginning, we have told the truth of what has happened and is happening to us. Can the truth still set us free in America? All our fate, safety, security, freedom, and future depends on how this question is answered.

Pray for the Nick and Donna Nickerson Family. Our property and lives are being threatened by the big banks. Pray and stand with us against judicial tyranny in America.

It Happened To Us - Jesus Is Lord
We proclaim Jesus Is Lord at the Nickerson Family Idaho Ranch.
Our little Peace of Heaven Ranch might not be Heaven, but we believe it must be on the way. For our family and friends, it is a place to be still and find rest, refreshment and renewal. Freedom of religion means Americans are free to believe or not believe. We are believers, and as believers, we respect others rights to believe or not believe. It is time for unbelievers to do the same for us. Whether you want it to be true or not, Christians are being persecuted for their faith in Idaho, Montana, and across America. It is happening to us and it has happened to many reading this. When they are through persecuting us, will you be next?
