It Happened To Us
Theft, Vandalism, Acts of Mortgage Terrorism

The law calls the following acts theft, vandalism, and terrorism, especially when no notice or warrant is served and it occurs outside lawful court authority.

Whether you like our family, believe our story, agree with our stand, or are so naive or blinded that you have been duped into believing what is happening to us could be somehow warranted or justified, is really completely irrelevant in regards to how freedom and liberty demand you justly respond and lawfully react to what you are about to see. This is not a Nickerson only, partisan, religious, government, or geographically specific issue. This is an American citizenship issue. If you are an American, or live in a country directly impacted by America remaining a free country, the following documentation should compel you to act quickly and swiftly to stop further travesties and tragedies from occurring to others. The question is not whether you are for or against the Nickersons or whether you are prejudiced or biased for or against foreclosure victims. The question is are you willing to accept the revocation of God-given, Constitutionally guaranteed rights of religious freedom, property rights and due process of any American citizen? In the big scheme of things, whether or not it hurts our feelings or disappoints us, it truly does not matter what you think of us or whether you believe our story of what has happened to us. The Idaho Ranch Invasion and Raid was unlawful, unConstitutional, and unAmerican. The truth is what is happening to us can happen to you because it is happening to us.

We are doing our part to sound the alarm that grave miscarriages of justice are occurring to us as they have to millions of others. And you, what are you doing? Helping? May God bless you and bless America through you. Thank you for standing with us against injustice. Hindering? According to Benjamin Franklin, Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are. Hindering justice or getting in the way when justice is being held hostage renders you an accomplice to injustice. Even doing nothing is doing something. Think about it. Hurting our cause? Competent fact checking refutes any claims of default or error on our part. No default caused by us exists and all truth, fact, and evidence proves it. We are the lawful owners and only rightful possessors of our Idaho Ranch and we have been denied due process to protect it. We are not going to banter back and forth to help promote your self interests or bolster your social media connections. Time, the truth, and our continued well doing will expose and silence all false claims and slanderous accusations. Our prayer is God will expose to the world all who played a role in this attack against us and render to each man according to his deeds. We know He will in His due time.

It Happened To Us - Idaho Ranch Theft, Vandalism, Acts of Mortgage Terrorism
It Happened To Us - Idaho Ranch Theft, Vandalism, Acts of Mortgage Terrorism
INCIDENT DATE:
November 12, 2019

LOCATION:
Orofino, Idaho

PERPETRATORS:
Police Powers of the State of Idaho. Hired agents and accomplices of JPMorgan Chase and PHH Mortgage Corp. Those who, by their actions and inactions, acted as accomplices.

VIOLATION:
Clearwater County committed, allowed, and facilitated acts of theft, vandalism, and mortgage terrorism and executed grave miscarriages of justice at our Nickerson Family Idaho Ministry Ranch. These acts occurred without service, notice or warrant and outside any lawful court authority.

INVESTIGATIVE REPORT:
August 2017 - Chris Goetz, the acting sheriff of Clearwater County, claimed he did not have the authority to stop the unlawful sale of our ranch. Key points: He admitted to seeing fraud all over the documents. He requested instructions from the Clearwater County Prosecuting Attorney on how to stop the sale. Despite evidence of fraud and our lawful objections, he went ahead and held an unlawful sale. At the sale, he refused to allow the parcels to be sold separately in accordance with Idaho law, accepted a grotesquely inadequate sale price in violation of law and regulation, and allowed a non-creditor to credit bid in violation of the judgment. Why would a good sheriff do that? Because Clearwater County Prosecutor Clayne Tyler threatened to hold Chris Goetz personally liable if he did not sell the property. To protect his personal interests, Chris Goetz executed an expired writ that referenced a void judgment, was not sealed with the seal of the Court, was not subscribed by the clerk, and was not lawfully issued in the name of the People. All these was nots were illegalities that rendered the sale nonbinding and unenforceable. By fact and law, our property was not lawfully sold in August 2017. Therefore, no alleged rights to act were secured or attempts to remove or dispossess our family can be lawfully executed.

August 2018 - Chris Goetz, the acting sheriff of Clearwater County, claimed he did not have the authority to refuse to sign a Sheriff's Deed to PHH even though the deed would be invalid on its face, void, unlawful, nonbinding, lawfully unenforceable, and illegal. PHH did not have any lawful beneficial interest in our ranch and all rights secured through summary judgment are based on fraudulent claims and judgments. Further, the alleged Sheriff's Sale created triple indemnity for us (Genworth, Chase, PHH), and the judicial errors surrounding it nullified our rights to redemption. Why would a good sheriff sign the deed when it defied common sense to knowingly issue a deed he knew was fraudulently obtained, based on a wrongful foreclosure action, would hurt an innocent homeowner, and was against his conscience? Because Clearwater County Prosecutor Clayne Tyler and Deputy Prosecutor Lori Gilmore threatened he would lose his job if he did not sign it. To protect his personal interests, Chris Goetz signed it. What does this mean? He signed over the title of a property to a thief with a national rap sheet when he had reviewed documentation that proved the property was stolen.

July 2019 - Judge FitzMaurice denied our rights to due process and a trial by jury; ignored evidence of fraud on the Court that voided all underlying judgments; acted as a trier of fact to render summary judgment in the ejectment action; and issued a Writ of Ejectment (i.e. order for us to remove our personal belongings from the property). Since ejectment is not codified in Idaho, which means there are no laws on the books regarding ejectment actions, this is a precedent setting case and ruling. Further, since ejectment is not codified, it falls under common law. Common law ejectment actions are initiated to dispossess rightful owners of properties. Thus, they require new claims of ownership or right to act to be firmly established. Since PHH cannot lawfully establish ownership, and new evidence proves fraud, we filed an appeal in the Idaho Supreme Court in accordance with the Idaho Rules of Civil Procedure. We also maintained contact and communication with Chris Goetz to ensure we, our property, and our persons were not at risk or in jeopardy or in violation of any laws. We walked the highest road of keeping the peace that could be expected of any victim. Any other claims are slanderous, constitute defamation of character, and should be considered felonious attempts to justify unlawful and immoral actions. Further, we consistently communicated no due process had occurred, provided evidence all claims by PHH and Chase were fraudulent, made ourselves available to answer any questions or refute any contradictory claims, and repeatedly affirmed it was not our desire to be a problem or cause any conflict. We repeatedly extended the long arm of friendship to the law and verbalized our desire for a lawful and peaceful resolution of this matter.

September 2019 - Chris Goetz, the acting sheriff of Clearwater County, announced to us the bank had cancelled the writ and voided the $40 check he was paid to eject us. We are unsure if any money for a move had been provided and was also included in this announcement. What matters is no eviction or ejectment actions were in place and the writ had been retracted. At all times, Chris Goetz indicated he would notify us if anything changed or any further actions were initiated. Further, he affirmed we were rightfully and lawfully on our property and that no conflict or problems between he, Clearwater County, and our family existed.

November 12, 2019 - Chris Goetz, the acting sheriff of Clearwater County, invaded and raided our Idaho Ranch outside of any lawful authority. Seized items were transported hours away to a concealed location and then ultimately out of state. Personal belongings, livestock, and pets were left on the property and not removed as falsely claimed by press release (see below). Sheriff's deputies helped remove our property and drive it away, not just the moving company. Why would a good sheriff misrepresent the facts? What he would do to you if you misrepresented the facts? If you are a bankster or a Clearwater County District Court Judge, apparently nothing. However, if not, beware. We told the truth and represented all the facts correctly and look what has been done to us! We were allowed to retrieve select live animals post the raid, but their food, portable security pens, and all other items have been held hostage by hired guns working for JPMorgan Chase ever since. The keys to the property were given to Jim Meyers of JAS Properties in Kooskia, Idaho, who has claimed to be the hired gun in charge. The ranch, our agricultural operations, personal belongings, utilities, safety, security, and identity have all been maliciously violated, damaged, injured, and abused ever since. A family member, who was rightfully and lawfully on our property the morning of November 12, 2019, was arrested. Clearwater County is prosecuting her. A trial date has not yet been set. The pre-trial conference is January 29, 2020.

Picture of the retaining wall
How can someone be arrested for being on a property owned by their family and that they have permission to be when they have not been served or noticed they need to leave? Why would an American citizen willingly leave their property they were in lawful possession of when their personal belongings were all still on the property and no warrant, affidavit, rights or reason for arrest was verbally or in writing presented to them? Why would a homeowner leave a property when they personally heard a sheriff (Chris Goetz) tell them that the bank had stopped all ejectment and eviction attempts, promised to let them know if anything changed, and he had not done so? Why should a homeowner agree to leave their property just because a bunch of cocky officers armed with assault rifles unlawfully entered the home they were staying at by breaking their window, hanging up their phone, double handcuffing them, then sitting them out in the freezing rain for an extended period of time on a cold wet brick retaining wall, without telling them why they were there and disclosing what right they had to be there? How can someone be charged or arrested when they did not do anything wrong? Why is Clearwater County paying for Clayne Tyler, the acting County Prosecutor, to put on this show of force in prosecuting her to cover his backside for ordering the county law enforcement to spend county funds to get involved in a civil matter and attack and destroy the private property of an innocent family?



It Happened To Us - Idaho Ranch Theft, Vandalism, Acts of Mortgage Terrorism






This is the public statement released by the Sheriff. As you can see below, all of our property was not removed. Clearwater County Sheriff Deputies helped remove and drive our property across county lines, not just the moving company.


Below are some of the Personal Inventory List pages provided by the Altisource agent to identify items left behind by the sheriff. Many large and costly items are included on these lists. All are precious. Items not belonging to our family were also left on the ranch. The agent claimed a copy of these lists was posted on the house. We cannot confirm whether this occurred or not. We were allowed to review and expand this list and were promised access to the ranch to retrieve our remaining belongings. It has never happened. Some of the items on this list were retrieved after they were hauled to Lewis County in a trash receptacle and dumped. Much has been damaged, destroyed, and burned. Regardless, does this looks like all of the Nickerson's property has been removed?

Evidence of Collusion and Civil Racketeering (2002 to Present):
Felony offenses have been committed in Clearwater County with complete impunity. Clearwater County Sheriff Chris Goetz failed to uphold and enforce the law by refusing to charge JPMorgan Chase, PHH, Just Law, Clearwater Land and Title, and their agents and attorneys of record, for knowingly filing fraudulent documents in the Clearwater County records, presumably to hide criminal activity and secure racketeered summary judgments to steal our ranch. Prosecuting these banksters and mortgage robbers, previously convicted of committing the same crimes against hundreds of other Idaho property owners, for the felony offenses committed against us and the Clearwater County land records, would have exposed the prejudice, bias and corruption of the District Court rulings and helped save our ranch and protect Clearwater County. Why would a good sheriff not do that? Because Clearwater County Prosecutor Clayne Tyler obdurately refused to prosecute these felony offenses. Tyler decided, allegedly acting on behalf of Clearwater County, that Clearwater County is a small county and he is not going to go against the big banks. So instead of Sheriff Chris Goetz and Investigator Mitch Jared working together to take down some national bad guys, save an innocent family from being wrongly persecuted, and help expose big corruption in Idaho, the falsified records were ignored and the Clearwater County endorsed attack on our family was allowed to continue.

Testimony of Victims:
This is not a foreclosure action. This is a targeted assault on our family. No lawful dispossession of our property has occurred or can occur. We are being persecuted for our faith, leadership, Christian worldview, and conservative ideals. Wrongful foreclosure summary judgments were secured without due process based on fraudulent lending practices, acute regulatory failure, widespread systemic corruption, categorical procedural manipulation, treasonous judicial tyranny, ignored civil racketeering, politically motivated collusion, and well-funded crony capitalism. PHH has no lawful beneficial interest in our property. This attack was launched by Chase because of our faith, not because of a default on our part. We were on time and current with our payments in January when Chase transferred servicing to PHH. PHH took over our loan servicing in February, claimed default, refused all further payments, violated federal lending guidelines, and began foreclosure. More details are included throughout this website.

This is and was not a money issue. We did not default or fail to make payments. PHH refused to accept payments, research their false claims of payments of default, or allow us access to any records or employees that could validate or refute their claims. PHH simply took over the loan, refused all further payments, and told us they were going to foreclose. There is a big difference in not paying your bills and a creditor claiming a fake default (the day they take over their loan) and then refusing someone's payments. PHH admitted they refused our payments in court responses and filings. They claimed default was their reason, but all truth, facts, and evidence demonstrates we were not in default in January 2010 when PHH took over the servicing of our loan and PHH proved the inaccuracy of their claimed default by changing their claims of default by over $11,000 during the litigation. There was no default. Even if there was, billions of dollars were given to Chase and PHH to help homeowners keep their homes if they did default. Our home was foreclosed as a punishment for having a disfavored worldview, not because we failed to make payments.

"PHH is unaware of any payments made or not made by the Nickersons to Chase."
Plaintiff's Response to Defendant Nickersons' Request for Admissions

"Because of the default and determination to foreclose, PHH declined to accept any further payments from the Nickersons unless those payments were going to cure in full the total amount of default plus accrued interest and costs…"
Affidavit in Support of Summary Judgment, by Ronald E. Casperite, executed 10-12-12, filed 10-16-12

"Interrogatory No. 20: Please list all occasions PHH refuse a payment from the Nickersons, including the date, the amount of payment, and who was present.
Answer: PHH does not keep a log of dates, amount of payments, and persons present when a payment may be refused. When you defaulted on your note and PHH elected to foreclose, it does not accept payments unless the full amount in default is cured together with all interest, costs and expenses."
Plaintiff's Response to Defendant Nickersons' First Set of Interrogatories and Requests For Production

"PHH refused to accept any further payments from the Nickersons until the total amount in default was paid. (Second Affidavit of Ronald Casperite.)"
Memorandum in Support of Plaintiff's Second Motion for Summary Judgment


Some of our witness testimony regarding payments.

I made all payments I was allowed to make, knew to make or was instructed to make by Chase and to Chase, and was current and in good standing with Chase in January 2010.
A Chase employee named Kim who we trusted and believed told us our account was in current and in good standing as of January 2010.
A Wells Fargo employee named Heather reviewed a credit report in January 2010 and told us Chase represented and reported that we were current on this account. We relied on these representations.
According to Chase’s account history, we were not in default as of January 21, 2010.
Upon the alleged transfer of servicing from Chase to PHH, PHH immediately claimed a default of 14 missed payments.
My wife and I disputed the default and requested PHH to provide the account records. PHH refused to research the disputed default and claimed they did not have the account records. On July 3, 2012, PHH stated, in response to the Nickersons request for admissions, “PHH is unaware of any payments made or not made by the Nickersons to Chase.”
Since, in February of 2010, PHH, by their own admission, was unaware of any payments made or not made by the Nickersons to Chase, then PHH could not claim a default.

PHH would not, did not and has not allowed me or my wife to make any payments since February 2010.
PHH would not and did not provide me with any proof of default/
PHH blatantly refused to accept payments, refused to research and provide proof of the alleged default, and blocked all efforts and attempts we made to resolve the disputed default.
As of November 2013, PHH claims the Nickersons missed 9 monthly payments which contradicts PHH’s claim of 14 missed monthly payments in February 2010. This is an $11,000 difference and is basis for PHH’s claims to be dismissed because the Nickersons were never presented with the default amount nor given the opportunity to cure it.
Affidavit in Support of Motions to Reconsider, 2014

Our loan was current in January 2010. PHH assumed servicing of our loan in February 2010, and refused to accept any payments from that time on. PHH falsely claimed default began on January 1, 2009. We disputed PHH’s false claim of default and asked them to provide an account record. PHH stated to us that they did not have any account records. In 2010, we repeatedly provided PHH with evidence documenting payments we had made to Chase in 2009 and 2010. PHH told us the account was in foreclosure, they could not accept payments, and instructed us any monies received would not be credited to our account, but would go toward the costs of foreclosure. PHH refused to credit our payments and refused to accept any further payments. Then PHH attempted to foreclose non-judicially when they knew it was against Idaho law, I.C. § 45-1502. Our neighbors notified us that the non-judicial foreclosure was posted in the local newspaper. Our former attorney notified PHH that according to the law they could not foreclose non-judicially on our property. PHH stopped the non-judicial foreclosure and proceeded with the judicial foreclosure.
Affidavit of Charles Nickerson in Opposition to Summary Judgment, 2019

As the alleged servicer of our loan, PHH Mortgage Services has access to records and testimony that prove my wife and I were not in default and that we were owed money in February 2010.
PHH Mortgage Services refused to allow my wife or I, our attorney, or any other third party to make a payment on our property. PHH Mortgage Services assumed servicing of our loan in February 2010 and refused all monies and resolution attempts thereafter.
Affidavit of Charles Nickerson in Support of Motion to Reconsider Summary Judgment Order, 2019


Our attempts to pay off the loan, sell the property, finish paying out the loan, or stop the foreclosure in anyway were denied. Because we chose not to submit to the theft of our ranch and unlawful persecution of our Christian faith, our persons, personal belongings, and entire financial portfolio were attacked by these entities and their accomplices. We fought back and are resolutely determined and committed to continue to fight back with prayer, resolve, publicity, and justice until our ranch is saved, our good name is cleared, and all corruption regarding this matter, from the lowest to the highest levels, is exposed.

Conflicts of interest and potential motives that establish personal interests and generate concerns Idaho public officials might not act on our behalf:


Did you know the county sheriff works for and answers to the county prosecuting attorney?
Neither did we. However, it has been repeatedly confirmed that this is how Clearwater County has and is being functionally run. This unConstitutional hierarchy structure opens the corruption doors wide open, compromises the sovereignty of the United States Constitution in Idaho, and questions the sobriety of all county wide interests of justice. Scary? It is to us. What has happened to us and others should make it scary to you too.


It Happened To Us - Idaho Ranch Theft, Vandalism, Acts of Mortgage Terrorism


Did you know the wife of the local sheriff works for Clearwater Land and Title?
Neither did we...until after the alleged sale occurred and the deed was signed and we were questioning why the title company was not being investigated.


It Happened To Us - Idaho Ranch Theft, Vandalism, Acts of Mortgage Terrorism




Did you know we have been told the daughter of the local surveyor Cuddy is the Court Clerk Carrie Bird?
Neither did we...until we were researching errors and contradictions in the county records and wanted to know why Carrie Bird was not interested in looking into the fraud. It appears moving property boundaries and legalizing unlawful land acquisitions in Clearwater County may have been going on with complete impunity for a long time. More research on this when time allows.

Did you know research has shown the State of Idaho has around 50M shares in JPMorgan Chase stock and that Idaho pensions are held and controlled by Chase?
Neither did we. Supporters and researchers concerned with the lack of inaction by Idaho public officials did an investigation and discovered this information for us. Additional fact checking by us is required for us to confirm and provide definitive details, but it certainly provides good incentive for Idaho to look the other way on our case. If any of you are able to corroborate this information, please let us know so we can pass this information on in our reports to the FBI and Department of Justice.

Did you know Clearwater County Judge Gregory FitzMaurice is an appointed, not elected judge?
Not only were we denied our Constitutional rights to a trial by jury, but a man who has not been voted on by the people, acted as a trier of fact and ordered, with an invalid writ, the theft, vandalism, and terrorism of our family and private property. Research demonstrates Idaho's appointed versus elected judge statistics create extremely biased and prejudiced benches, especially with the decade long push to deny trials and grant summary judgments. It appears to us many of the summary judgments being granted directly violate Constitutional rights. This brings into question whether Idaho is upholding the United States Constitution and maintaining its authority as the Supreme Law of the Land. Can politically motivated agendas be legislated by the bench through pre-determined partisan precedents? History and research demonstrate they can.

Did you know Clearwater County Judge Michael Griffin determined no proof of default had been presented to the court?
However, he then allowed a hired contractor that had never been an employee of either bank create an illustrative account history to show default. He prepared this narrative specifically for legislation in violation of the rules of civil procedure and summary judgment standards. Why would Judge Griffin allow this and why did the banks not just produce the actual account records? Because all true records from Chase demonstrate we did not default and show how Chase hid our payments in suspense accounts and wrongly applied them. Since PHH had already admitted they took over the loan and refused all further payments, there was nothing for them to produce. We have prepared a video entitled, We Did Not Default that addresses this issue in detail. We made our payments. We did not default.

We Did Not Default

Did you know all reports we were given a year to show we did not default and could not are slanderous and defamatory misrepresentations?
Summary judgment hearings were held and judgments were rendered against us without our knowledge, notification, or consent. Thousands of pages of documentation has been submitted to the court to prove PHH does not own our property, we owe PHH no debt, and we did not default on any debt. The banks have lied and filed felonious documents in the county records. The banks and their agents have committed fraud on the court. The banks have committed crimes and broken state and federal regulations and laws. All evidence and genuine issues of material fact we presented to establish our valid legal claims have been ignored and not considered by a court acting as a bank court, not an "ensure equal access to justice for both parties" court.

Did you know Clearwater County has allowed the foreclosure of our property and forced a physical dispossession of our ranch by violent means when no account records, notations, taped recordings, employee testimonies, or other admissible proof were ever presented to the court that show we defaulted? Why would Clearwater County do this? Because truth, facts, and evidence prove we made every payment we were allowed to make. The only way for the banks to win was to prevent us from having a trial by jury and letting our evidence be heard in a full and fair contest. Clearwater County Judge Michael Griffin held summary judgment proceedings and rendered judgments without our knowledge, presence, or participation in violation of Idaho law.

Judge Griffin then crafted rulings that could not be reviewed or reversed by failing to provide opinions and memorandums. Causing the Idaho Supreme Court to rule against us and affirm his rulings established the illusion there was some sort of credibility or legality to his rulings. There is not. Nonetheless, the pen of the Idaho Supreme Court empowered Judge Griffin to hide what went on in his court from further scrutiny or investigation and left us without any advocate in the law. Thus, this acting bank court established fraudulent laws of the case to prevent due process and a trial by jury. Why would he do this? Many possible answers to this question exist. It was the only way for judgment to be rendered against us. Threats. Blackmail. Political advancement. However, bank accounts and direct evidence of racketeering and crony capitalism would need to be investigated by those with the authority to do so in order for us to prove his motives. No one has stepped forward to do this for us and freedom, liberty, and justice for all. We may never know what caused this judge to rule so unjustly. What we know is we made our payments and were on time and current when PHH took over our loan and began foreclosure. Account records, notations, recordings, and employee testimonies all prove this and could have established this beyond a reasonable doubt. We were denied due process and a trial by jury by this judge acting as a trier of facts in violation of our Constitutional rights. Our family has suffered immensely for his decisions and the value, worth, and significance of our American citizenship is being annulled and revoked because of this judge's failure to uphold and enforce the laws of the land.

Did you know Clearwater County and the State of Idaho are guilty of these and other grave miscarriages of justice and their extreme liability and exposure in this matter have caused them to allow us to be further damaged, injured, and attacked? All the fact checkers and researchers out there who have claimed differently have either incompetently reviewed the record or they need to explain their intentional misrepresentation of the facts of this case to you and the rest of America. None of the actions of Clearwater County and the State of Idaho have been, or can be, warranted or justified.

Did you know former Clearwater County Judge Michael Griffin admitted there was a break of the chain of title?
This prevented PHH from having beneficial interest (i.e. ownership of debt or right to foreclose) and demonstrated fraud on the Court by Chase and PHH (for lying about beneficial interest), but he ruled in their favor anyway. Why? Because Kipp Manwarring of Idaho Falls (PHH attorney) told him the break did not matter. Judge Griffin acted as a bank court and let the bank attorney direct the law of the case. Below is a transcript of a discussion between Judge Griffin and PHH's attorney. This discourse corroborates a genuine issue of material fact regarding PHH's claims of ownership exists. Unfortunately for justice and the integrity of the Clearwater County land records, he chose to ignore this dispute that prevented summary judgment and rule in favor of the bank anyway. We have made a video entitled Contradictory Chain of Title Claims that addresses and explains all the fraud and criminal activities surrounding the contradictory claims of the chain of title in more detail. This video demonstrates willful fraud on the court and intent to defraud us of our property.

(Edited for clarity)

Judge Griffin: Okay now in the papers that have been submitted to the court…there’s a letter talking about it going from Coldwell to Chase does there have to be an assignment from Coldwell to Chase in the beginning? I couldn’t find that in the file…I didn’t find an assignment from Coldwell to Chase in the beginning I didn’t know if there needed to be one or not.

Attorney for PHH: Uh, I think if there was an issue regarding Chase’s ability to foreclose you would have to show that by assignment that’s dually recorded…

Judge Griffin: Okay and so you have documents in the file which reference the loan, the original loan, and uh, you have documents which you uh, indicate show that PHH is the beneficial holder…

Contradictory Chain of Title Claims


Did you know elected, appointed, and hired public officials in Idaho are guilty of Misprison of Felony?
We do and are praying everyone in America will soon know too.

18 U.S. Code § 4 - Misprison of felony. Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

*More truth, facts, documentation, and other evidence will be provided to further corroborate the above concerns as time allows. This investigation is ongoing.

Relevant History:
We have known Sheriff Chris Goetz for years, around seventeen. Prior to November 12, we would have introduced you to him as an acquaintance friend and described him as a good, honest family man. However, this acting sheriff who claimed he had no authority to stop crimes from being committed; who failed to act on his own, and in accordance with his own conscience, rather than be intimidated by, of all people, Clayne Tyler; and who ignored the blatant persecution of an innocent family because of the personal cost to him if he stood up for them; suddenly decided he had the authority to break the law on November 12. Why? Because a big bank told him too. Based on our previous experience, something was done to convince him it was the best way to protect his personal interests. What did he do? He set up an ambush and led an armed invasion of a private property by violent means without warrant or authority to seize and destroy the personal belongings of an innocent family. Why would he do this? We would like to know. Every law abiding citizen should want to know. What we know is what happened in Clearwater County is not lawful, normal, or acceptable in a free and moral society. If you are a Christian who pays your bills, has substantial equity in your property, takes care of your personal belongings, and has done nothing that could warrant or justify you and your family being attacked, beware! You may be next. The big banks have done it to millions of others, and, now, thanks to the actions and inactions of Idaho public officials, they know it is okay to do it in Clearwater County. Below is evidence of their theft, vandalism, and mortgage terrorism. This is what they did that we have been able to compile so far. It will be expanded as time allows. We are also compiling a victim list. This has happened to others too. The documentation below shows only some of what happened to our personal belongings when Chris Goetz, acting personally and on behalf of Clearwater County, hired treasure assassins and North American Van Lines to move our goods and chattels to safe storage. This is only a part of our story of what happened to us...





No person or entity had a lawful right to ignore our verbal trespass notifications and cross over posted No Trespassing signs to enter our Idaho Ranch on November 12, 2019. All persons or entities who came in contact with any of our personal belongings assumed lawful, moral, ethical, and professional responsibilities to treat them appropriately and with respect. North American Van Lines present themselves as moving and relocation professionals and claim they agree, understand, and care (See excerpts below). If this is true, who ordered and paid North American Van Lines to destroy our personal belongings?

It Happened To Us - Idaho Ranch Theft, Vandalism, Acts of Mortgage Terrorism
It Happened To Us - Idaho Ranch Theft, Vandalism, Acts of Mortgage Terrorism
On November 12, 2019, North American Van Lines (aka City North American from Moscow, Idaho) ignored all requests, pleas, and demands they cease and desist from any participation whatsoever in the unlawful raid and seizure of our private property. North American, escorted by Idaho State Police, Clearwater County law enforcement, and bank agents, crossed No Trespassing signs and ignored repetitive verbal No Trespass demands and notifications. They followed orders initiated by convicted mortgage robbers; violated our privacy, safety, and security; attacked and destroyed our innocent family and our personal belongings; and knowingly and willingly incurred significant, severe, and substantial exposure and liability for their comprehensive actions. Their destruction team, acting independently and corporately, intentionally and maliciously harassed, vexed, damaged, and injured our family, personal belongings, and private property. All parties were properly and comprehensively informed of the illegalities and liabilities surrounding their actions before, during, and post the theft, vandalism, and terrorism of our personal belongings. Five moving trucks of personal belongings were removed from our ranch to be placed in storage secured by North American. Additional items belonging to our family and neighbors are still on the ranch. We have been blocked and prevented from retrieving them with armed guns hired by JPMorgan Chase.

Rules and Laws

Even sheriff's have rules and laws they have to follow. Below are rules regarding writs of execution we found in the Idaho Sheriffs Civil Process Manual. If Chris Goetz had followed these rules, our family belongings would not have been ruined and our family would not have been attacked and forced to spend the holidays on the hillside above our ranch.

Idaho Sheriffs Civil Process Manual
1.1.1 BACKGROUND.
Process. In Idaho law, process is the pieces of paper wherein the court exercises its authority. Process includes writs, warrants, summons, and orders of courts. Idaho Code § 31-2201.

1.3.9 ENTRY TO LAND, BUILDINGS, AND DWELLINGS.
A sheriff may peaceably enter private buildings and dwellings to effect execution of process, but may not break and enter against the owner's wishes, except where specifically authorized by the court to do so.

3.1.4 CONTENTS OF WRIT OF EXECUTION.

Process. Where the writ of execution requires the sheriff to deliver real or personal property, the writ must be issued to the sheriff of the county where the property or some part thereof is situated. Writs of execution may be issued at the same time to different county's sheriffs. Generally, the writ of execution shall require the levying officer to whom it is directed, to enforce the judgment and it shall include the following: Idaho Code § 11-102
a. The writ of execution must be issued in the name of the people (State of Idaho).
b. It must be sealed with the seal of the court. Idaho Code § 73-111.
c. It must be subscribed (signed) by the clerk.
d. It must be directed to the sheriff.
e. It must intelligently refer to the judgment, stating the court and the county where the judgment roll is filed.
f. It must identify the court where the judgment was issued.
g. It must identify the County where the judgment was filed.

3.1.8 DOCUMENTS TO BE SERVED.
a. A copy of the writ.
...
Practice Tip: At times plaintiffs will have executions issued for more than the legal sixty (60) day limit. Under no circumstances should a sheriff levy upon property after sixty (60) days from receipt of the writ.


Did the sheriff break the law?
The Sheriff referenced a document entitled the Second Writ of Ejectment as giving him authority to act. Below is an excerpt from that writ.

It Happened To Us - Idaho Ranch Theft, Vandalism and Mortgage Terrorism


As you can see, this writ failed to comply with rules and regulations governing the execution of writs. Further, the front page was clearly stamped Serve and Leave in red ink. We were never served this writ and were not noticed any eviction or ejectment actions had been initiated. We, the defendants in the matter, were never caused or given opportunity to remove our personal belongings, which is a condition precedent to the sheriff acting to remove them. To make matters worse, the vast majority of our personal belongings were returned and brought to the property during the last few weeks and months due to Sheriff Goetz's assurances we would have at least three or four weeks to respond to any potential eviction or ejectment attempts. Throughout this entire attack, we have protected, preserved and exerted extreme efforts to watch over our personal belongings and have consistently and faithfully exhibited due diligence in abiding by all laws, guidelines, and regulations surrounding foreclosure, ejectment, and eviction actions. If the sheriff had also followed the law, a lot of damage and injury could have been prevented.


It Happened To Us - Idaho Ranch Theft, Vandalism, Acts of Mortgage Terrorism
It is imperative to remember as you review the following documentation that we were rightfully and lawfully on our Idaho Ranch on the morning of the raid. Our family had not been served or noticed we needed to remove our persons or our belongings from the ranch, all previous actions had been retracted, and the Sheriff had personally told us we were absolutely within our rights to be there. We have been embattled in a wrongful foreclosure action for years, but the bank has been unable to dispossess us because they do not have a case. PHH does not have any beneficial interest in our property and all claims we defaulted (failed to make our payments) are false, fraudulent, and slanderous. As a matter of fact and record, Clearwater County is who physically, not legally, dispossessed us on November 12th, not the banksters. So what did Clearwater County do? They raided our private property to seize our personal belongings and turned them over to JPMorgan Chase. Why? How could they do such a thing when no judgment against our personal belongings existed? They could not. Why did they turn the keys over to Chase instead of PHH when PHH is allegedly the new owner? Hmmm...to give us a Christmas present of more proof of fraud to add to all the irrefutable other evidence we have previously presented?

Without cause, right, lawful authority, or any moral or ethical justification, Clearwater County turned our personal belongings over to agents who then spent days violating our safety, security, and privacy as they pillaged, damaged, and vandalized what is rightfully ours. Incidentally, this included legal notes, strategies, corruption notebooks, fraud evidence, and research on extensive criminal activity. Have you considered why after a decade of litigation it could be so critical for the banks to get possession of our private property and personal belongings right at Thanksgiving and just weeks before Christmas? Do you think our disclosing new evidence that proves fraud on the Court and the fact we are getting closer and closer to exposing Chase, PHH, and their accomplices of civil racketeering, collusion, and acts of domestic terrorism could have played into the sudden need to get us off the ranch and get their hands on our personal belongings, research and documentation? We think so.

What actually happened? Five moving trucks of our personal belongings were stolen by the police forces of the State of Idaho and moved to City Moving in Moscow, Idaho. This location was originally concealed from us. There everything was inventoried for a second time without explanation or any findings being provided to us, then placed into non-climatized storage. From there, it was transported again out of state to two separate storage units hours from our ranch. On the afternoon before Thanksgiving, Investigator Mitch Jared brought a key to our hillside campsite with a letter from Chris Goetz telling us we had until Friday the 13th to remove our belongings from the Washington storage facility or they would be considered abandoned.

We travelled in inclement winter weather a few hours away to Washington to find musical instruments, temperature sensitive electronics and other personal belongings requiring climate controlled conditions had been crammed into cold storage. The units had no electricity. As you can imagine, a lot of the two weeks was spent waiting and praying for breaks in the winter weather so we could properly retrieve our belongings without causing any further damage. We battled snow, freezing rain, temperatures in the teens, icy roads, slick walkways, and exhausted drivers navigating dangerous driving conditions to complete the daunting task of undoing the mess you are about to see. A complete inventory of the damage will be available soon. This was not a foreclosure or an eviction. This was negligent, reckless, malicious destruction of property. If one of us had entered a Clearwater County public officials home and treated one piece of their furniture or personal belongings the way around 7000 square feet of our personal belongings were treated, what would have happened to us? One of the saddest and most angering elements of the seizure is neighbors offered to let Clearwater County move our belongings to safe storage on their property the night of the raid. Those acting on behalf of Clearwater County and Idaho refused. Clearwater County intentionally tried to create hardship and hazard for us by inconceivably refusing. Maybe they did not want the neighbors to see what they had done and were planning to do.

We arrived in Washington State, around 80 miles away from our Idaho Ranch, the evening before Thanksgiving to a mess far worse than we could have imagined. No moving blankets were used on furniture. Pallet wrap was not used to secure and protect packed items. Items were not packed back into their product boxes as they have always been when transported from ranch to ranch. Heavy boxes, metal desks, weight benches, and other weighty items were sitting on top of pianos, keyboards, guitars, commercial dehydrators, commercial laserjet printers, and binding equipment. Tools, kitchen appliances, furniture, and toys were all crammed together and precariously stacked. Boxes filled with items from kitchens, bedrooms, workshops, and barns were mixed, crushed, ripped, bent, and gashed. Unwrapped and unprotected contents were just thrown in the units and into boxes in a hodge podge random chaotic frenzy. No rhyme, reason, mitigation efforts, common sense, or minimally functioning IQ could justify or explain what we witnessed. Around 7000 square feet of quality and treasured personal belongings were crammed into two separate storage units in what could appropriately be described a man-made disaster trash heap. There was nothing natural, reasonable, or humane about the disaster Chris Goetz ordered, facilitated, and allowed. Chris Goetz not only betrayed us, but he abused our belongings by acting like a privacy and personal property terrorist ring leader.






What If

What If the sheriff had refused to execute the writ because it was not lawful, was not based on a lawful judgment, and was not in compliance with his Sheriff's Manual,
What if the sheriff had informed the District Court and Clayne Tyler he was unwilling to act until we were allowed due process,
What if the sheriff had required the District Court to reissue the expired writ,
What if the sheriff had admitted the Sheriff's Deed was void on its face and was therefore unlawful, non-binding, and unenforceable,
What if the sheriff had investigated the banks claims and provided corroboration their claims were fraudulent,
What if the sheriff had waited to execute any presented writ until right to appeal, and other judicial options, were exhausted,
What if the sheriff had honored his professional assurances and personal guarantees to communicate with us prior to moving forward if any eviction or ejectment actions were initiated,
What if the sheriff had remembered the law finds us innocent until we are proven guilty.
What if the sheriff had considered convicted criminals were the ones telling him we, innocent homeowners, were guilty,
What if the sheriff had allowed us opportunity to remove our personal belongings as we had told him we would want to do if the bank tried to remove us from the property,
What if the sheriff had not abused, broken, ruined and destroyed our personal belongings and instead moved them to a safe place,
What if?
He would be the man we believed him to be and he would be a good sheriff and we would believe we still live in the land of the free and the home of the brave.
What if...it happened to you?

We opened the doors with the keys provided by Mitch Jared and Chris Goetz, and stood in shock and disbelief at what we saw. We are preparing an exhaustive inventory of the damages and losses, but even the most unskilled, unprofessional, and uncouth mover would have put more effort into setting up a storage unit than the Clearwater County destruction crew did. Scratches, gashes, broken pieces, lost screws, broken legs, missing doors, bent metal, cracked wood, ripped vinyl and fabrics were just some of the damages we found. Everything was packed into the units as if the moving crew had intentionally tried to separate everything so we could not ascertain what was missing or inventory the damage. Table tops were found in one part of the unit with all four legs and the chairs spread out all over the two units. We found glass chards, fiberglass type materials, sawdust, mud, leaked fluids, powders, and all kinds of other destructive elements all over our treasures. Many are irreplaceable like the ones passed on to our family by a Granddaddy who passed away earlier this year. Wedding, birthday, anniversary, treasured handmade gifts, and other holiday presents were marred, broken, and ruined. Extreme incompetence, negligence and recklessness fatally fails to identify or adequately describe what we found when we opened the storage unit doors. It appeared evil movers stood at the back of their truck and threw everything into the units. Then, they grabbed what was left and crammed it into any holes they could find. It was really beyond bad. To make matters worse, only one side of each of the units could be opened. Why? The rollers were intentionally wedged to prevent the second doors from opening. Presumably, this was yet another attempt to create additional hardship, hassle, and inconvenience for us. Regardless, the actions of those who seized our property went far beyond ignorance, incompetence, or negligence. Their actions clearly demonstrated and displayed maliciousness, extreme hatred for us, and some sick mental disorder (aka, destructomaniac) that made them want to destroy nice quality things. Without a doubt, it took far more effort and skill to create the mess we found in the storage units than it would have taken to move and pack everything correctly and professionally many, many, many times.

Black's Law Dictionary 4th Edition provides legal definitions for some of the words we are using to describe what happened to us. We think you will agree our use of these terms is accurate and quite appropriate.

NEGLECT
May mean to omit, fail, or forbear to do a thing that can be done, or that is required to be done, but it may also import an absence of care or attention in the doing or omission of a given act. State v. Sheldon, 135 Okl. 278, 276 P. 468, 472; Same v. Butterfield, 138 Oki. 112, 276 P. 473.

And it may mean a designed refusal or unwillingness to perform one's duty. In re Perkins, 234 Mo.App. 716, 117 S.W.2d 686, 692.

The term is used in the law of bailment as synonymous with "negligence." But the latter word is the closer translation of the Latin "negligentia."

Culpable Neglect. In this phrase, the word "culpable" means not only criminal, but censurable. As he has merely lost a right of action which he might voluntarily relinquish, and has wronged nobody but himself, culpable neglect to preserve rights conveys the idea of neglect which exists where the loss can fairly be ascribed to the party's own carelessness, improvidence, or folly. State ex rel. Fulton v. Coburn, 133 Ohio St. 192, 12 N.E.2d 471, 477.

NEGLIGENCE
The omission to do something which a reasonable man, guided by those ordinary considerations which ordinarily regulate human affairs, would do, or the doing of something which a reasonable and prudent man would not do.

Culpable Negligence. Failure to exercise that degree of care rendered appropriate by the particular circumstances, and which a man of ordinary prudence in the same situation and with equal experience would not have omitted.

Gross Negligence, The Intentional failure to perform a manifest duty in reckless disregard of the consequences as affecting the life or property of another; such a gross want of care and regard for the rights of others as to justify the presumption of willfulness and wantonness.

MALICE
The intentional doing of a wrongful act without just cause or excuse, with an intent to inflict an injury or under circumstances that the law will imply an evil intent. Luikart v. Miller, Mo., 48 S.W.2d 867, 871. Cottle v. Johnson, 179 N.C. 426, 102 S.E. 769, 770.

TERRORISM
The use or threat of violence to intimidate or cause panic, esp. as a means of achieving a political end.
See 18 USCA § 2331.
“Terrorism as a tactic has a very long history and generally refers to the intentional use of terror-induced fear by an individual or group to amplify the effects of a strategic act of violence. It has often been associated with actors who are at a distinct military or tactical disadvantage against a larger threat or enemy, and who have a limited capacity to strike back on an equal or sustained basis; hence, the perceived need to use a strategy that would enhance an otherwise limited capacity. Nevertheless, it is also possible for dominant actors, including states, to utilize terror-based tactics, sometimes due to a perceived lack of more creative strategic options, and sometimes due to a sense of impunity and superiority. Regardless of the actors or their motivation, at least in contemporary practice, terrorism is always and everywhere in violation of international law.” Darren C. Zook, ‘Terrorism,’ in 4 The Oxford International Encyclopedia of Peace 145, 145 (Nigel J. Young ed., 2010).
Black’s Law Dictionary 10th Edition

AMBUSH
The noun "ambush" means (1) the act of attacking an enemy unexpectedly from a concealed station; (2) a concealed station, where troops or enemies lie in wait to attack by surprise, an ambuscade; (3) troops posted in a concealed place for attacking by surprise. The verb "ambush" means to lie in wait, to surprise, to place in ambush.
Dale County v. Gunter, 46 Ala. 118, 142, referred to in Darneal v. State, 14 Okl.Cr. 540, 174 P. 290, 292, 1 A.L.R. 638.

It Happened To Us - Idaho Ranch Theft, Vandalism, Acts of Mortgage Terrorism

Layer after layer revealed more damage, more maliciousness and willful destruction. This is our family's New Zealand Pine Table. Our daughter Amanda had claimed it for her dining room table in her home. Someone purposefully, intentionally, and maliciously made the choice to ruin it when they put it into the storage unit. Why? What did our table ever do to anyone other than offer them a free meal in a warm, cozy log home with a kindhearted giving family. So what did they do? This special ordered formal dining table was not wrapped in blankets or other protective material. It was left sitting on its end directly on concrete. New Zealand pine is one of the softest woods used for furniture building. The beveled edge from the pressure of being on its end with heavy weight stacked on top was scarred and ruined. It appears the table was drug across the unit on its side. As you can see in the picture above, a pressure washer was leaning against it on one side. It was wedged in between an antique oak dry sink with large boxes on the other side. A new Camp Chef stove, which incidentally had a nice carrying bag available for transport, was left put together and forced between boxes and the table creating a long deep gash across the top of the table as you can see in the pictures. This table has always been covered with a glasstop we had custom made for the table when we ordered the table. Meals were served with a table pad, table cloth and clear vinyl table cloth protector over the glass top to protect and preserve the beauty of the wood. Not only was the table abused, but the table legs were placed unwrapped in another storage unit. The chairs were poked, suspended, stacked on, and crammed into precarious positions all over both units. We will not know if all the hardware has been found until we are in a position to put the table together. What lawful purpose or reasonable justification could there be to destroy a family heirloom? With the epidemic level social crisis issues Idaho is currently battling, the State of Idaho should be buying families willing to eat meals together tables, not destroying their tables to punish them for being conservative, close knit families. This has nothing to do with a foreclosure, eviction, or ejection. This represents mob boss style intimidation tactics and the malicious persecution of an innocent American family. What happened to us is wrong and those responsible need to be held accountable. It happened to us. It could happen to you.


Tips for Packing Your Garage and Storage
Power tools must be completely drained of oil and gas before moving.

https://www.northamerican.com/moving-help/packing-tips/garage-hobby-room-storage

Electronics Care
If the original carton and packing materials are no longer available, you may need to crate it prior to moving day. If the item can fit in another sturdy carton, line it with plenty of newsprint paper or styrofoam before packing. Seal and securely mark "Extremely Fragile" on the carton.

Office Furniture
Any modular office furniture will need to be dismantled prior to move day. Use tape to mark where pieces go together and keep the hardware together (including drawer pulls) in one spot, like a plastic bag or coffee can.

Why would any creditor intentionally break a tool that a debtor could use to make money to pay their debts?
The kindest way to describe what happened to our tools is they were trashed. Handles were broken off. Workshop kept quality tools were turned into garage sale giveaways. Scratches, dents, dings, parts were intentionally stressed or broken off, tension parts were loosened with precarious packing and poor support. As you can see, one of our DeWalt chop saws was suspended with all the weight resting on its arm. Why would someone intentionally and willfully destroy tools if not to hurt and injure us, our livelihood and the sustainability of our financial portfolio? Apparently the movers have never worked a day in their life because they obviously have no respect for others who are hard workers and who use their tools to make and enhance their living and lifestyle. Some of our tools were heirlooms and special gifts from loved ones. Many of our tools were purchased to make treasures we share with our family, friends, and others. Through the years, our family has made smart purchases with our available finances. We bought tools and quality equipment instead of spending our money on video games, space wasting marketing gimmicks waiting for the next garage sale, and fast-break fad items. And...we took care of what we purchased. Good stewardship and wise investments should be rewarded in a land of fair play and free society, not be punished because of differing political or religious viewpoints. The intentional destruction of our possessions defied all logic and exposed extreme hatred and malice for our family.

Moving Instruments


Regardless of size and weight, every musical instrument must be properly packed, provided with sufficient cushioning materials and entrusted to a reliable shipping company to ensure that it arrives in perfect condition.

Don't scrimp on packaging materials when shipping musical instruments. Use sturdy shipping boxes and sufficient bubble wrap, foam, or other packaging materials to make sure your item is not damaged during its move.

Seal the package securely. Use only appropriate tape specifically designed for shipping to prevent the box from popping open during transit. Avoid using masking tape or cellophane tape as these might not be strong enough to secure the package. Avoid using string as this might get caught in conveyor belts and other shipping equipment.

How to Pack and Ship Musical Instruments
These complex and somewhat fragile items could easily sustain damage during a trip across the country, even if the truck operator drives carefully. Instruments cost a lot of money, and they allow you to express your emotions through the language of music. If anything happened to yours, you would probably feel devastated.

Stringed instruments have more fragility than other instruments, which makes them tricky to ship. You don't want fingerboards, bows, or sound- boxes to crack, but even something as simple as a speed bump could cause that kind of damage. Adverse weather conditions could also warp the wood.

https://www.bekins.com/2015/03/25/tips-to-safely-move-any-kind-of-musical-instrument/

Harp
How do I move my harp
…the recommended way is to pack your harp in a heavy duty cardboard carton with the harp supported and isolated with "foam in place" or other high to medium density foam. The foam should support the harp away from all sides of the carton so that any impact to the carton will not directly impact the harp. This is the method that harp manufacturers around the world use for both folk and pedal harps and we use with great success.

http://www.harps.com.au/index.php/resources/harps-tips/37-how-do-i-move-my-harp

Guitar
Guitars are notoriously delicate and fragile musical instruments that have not been designed to be tossed around inside a moving vehicle. In fact, guitars don't enjoy being moved too much – they like it when they are sleeping motionless in their hard or soft cases and when they are kept stationary on their guitar stands. The only gentle movement they are known to appreciate is when somebody is bringing beautiful notes out of them, either strapped to that person's shoulders or cuddled on their laps.

If you own a guitar and you're moving house soon, then you've got yourself a minor issue to deal with – how to pack your guitar for moving. And even though packing a guitar for shipment will not be the most challenging task you'll face when moving from one home to another, you should still do it right to avoid any type of untimely damage to your prized possession.

How to pack a guitar for moving? Pay attention to the preparation and packing steps below that outline the best way to pack a guitar for a move, for one careless or uncalculated movement may ruin your expensive stringed instrument for good.

Shipping box. You will need a shipping box made of strong cardboard regardless of whether your guitar has its own case or not. The box should be big enough to enclose the guitar case or the guitar alone with just enough space for the padding materials.

Unprinted packing paper. It's best to get your hands on heavy paper but soft packing paper will also do the trick. Just make sure it's unprinted as the ink can easily damage the sensitive finish on the instrument.

Bubble wrap. You don't need much bubble wrap to pack a guitar for a move – a few large sheets should be enough.

Packing tape. You'll still need to close up and secure the cardboard box after you've packed the stringed instrument inside it. Purchase quality packing tape.

https://moving.tips/packing-tips/how-to-pack-a-guitar-for-moving/

I've never let movers or friends help in instrument moving. Neither should you. It's best to preserve the friendship and not constantly yell at your movers.

The best moving method I've found for guitars and basses is to get as many cardboard guitar case shipping boxes as you can get.

https://reverb.com/news/tips-for-moving-an-instrument-collection

Ukulele
But just like any other musical instruments, the ukelele should have sufficient padding to ensure that it survives the rough shipping process.

A ukelele hard case is the best container for this minute musical instrument. It provides a cozy environment for the ukelele and protects it on all sides. Just keep the uke in place by filling void spaces within the case with bubble wrap or crumpled paper to prevent the instrument from rattling inside. Then, place the case in a slightly larger shipping box with packing materials on all sides to avoid movement.

https://howtoship.com/how-to-pack-and-ship-a-ukelele/

Banjo
Because of its long neck and fragile resonator, a banjo requires appropriate packing to ensure that it survives the rough shipping environment. A hard shell case provides the best protection for a banjo during shipping. However, placing the banjo in a case is not enough. Proper packing precautions must be observed to prevent any damage including breaking the neck due to impact.
https://howtoship.com/ship-banjo/

Harmonica
Being small, a harmonica can be easily boxed for shipping. However, proper packing precautions must be observed to prevent any damage such as dents and scratches caused by impact during transit.

Get a sturdy shipping box that is large enough to accommodate the cased and wrapped harmonica, with extra 2 inches of space on all sides, top and bottom. Fill the bottom of the box with a 2-inch layer of packing peanuts and lay the harmonica on top. Fill the remaining spaces on the sides and top with more packing peanuts. The idea is to make the box well packed so that there will be no space for the harmonica to move around.

https://howtoship.com/ship-harmonica/

Electronic Keyboard
...But just like any electronic device, keyboards are fragile and must be properly packed for shipping to avoid damage during transit.

The best way to pack an electronic keyboard is to double box it in its original packaging. This means packing the keyboard and its peripherals in the box it came with and then placing it in a much bigger shipping bags and filling all sides, top and bottom with packing materials.

Why would Clearwater County and North American Van Lines break our Taylor guitar?
For musicians and singers, it takes a truly mentally deranged North American mover or Idaho peacekeeping crusher to intentionally break a musical instrument, especially a Taylor guitar. We had heard United breaks guitars from Dave Carroll, but now it sounds like North American Van Lines and Idaho police powers break Taylor guitars too. Maybe we will write a song about it to help spread the word about what has happened to us. Even if someone hated us and wanted to hurt us, how sick do you have to be to intentionally break a guitar? Are you the one who did this? Did it make you feel big, bad, and tough to cram our guitar into the unit and hear it crack? What did our son's first Taylor guitar ever do to you? We are trying to walk with as much grace as we can, but whoever you are, you need to spend some serious face time in front of a mirror. With all due respect, the intentional destruction of property is socially unacceptable, generally considered sick, constitutes a crime, and shows you might require some urgent intervention to prevent further mental deterioration. From our perspective, and we believe any reasonably sane individual would concur, someone who would intentionally break a mint condition Taylor is well on their way to being a certified vandal and instrument terrorist. Other instruments were also trashed. No moving blankets, pads, or other protective measures were taken. Amanda's custom built harp and Nick's performance banjo were stuffed into a box without being wrapped and with what our kids call their white bear rug, a Christmas present from a Great Grandmother. The box was then beat up and put into non-climate controlled storage. If you are a musician, you know the rest of the story. Our Baldwin piano was put into storage with heavy boxes, tubs, a commercial dehydrator, a desk, and other other items stored on top of it. Again, no blankets, padding, or other protective measures were taken. Our Cowboy Church keyboard, violins, trumpet, clarinet, harmonicas, penny whistles, handbells, our other two son's first guitars, and other instruments suffered similar fates. Original packaging and hard cover cases were available for our instruments. A common sense thinker might have considered hard cases must be the best way to move instruments. Everything was maliciously broken, scratched, dented, and so on. We will not even know the full extent of the damage until we have time and the heart to sit and play. And...we will.

More video footage with tours of what we found in the storage units will be published soon. In the meantime, it has been said a picture is worth a thousand words so we will let you pause and look at some of our still photos. To help provide a little orientation for you, the silver backed appliance is a commercial dehydrator. It is sitting on a full-scale keyboard that has a removable stand. That is a heavy oak coffee table with solid wood bookshelf on top of the two of them. Unbelievable? Inconceivable? It happened. If those who did it to us are not held accountable, it could happen to you.

This is our kitchen trash can.

In our kitchen trash can is a laminated Bill of Rights that was previously hung as a wall hanging in our Idaho Ranch.

Crumbled up inside the Bill of Rights is the IHTU (It Happened To Us) banner (see above) our family has been using in shows, fairs and other venues in our battle to save our ranches. See the picture above. Many of you have seen our banner and heard our story as we sat and talked by it. It tells our story of what has happened to us. Whether or not someone agrees with it, breaking into our house, crumbling it up, and destroying it by throwing it into a kitchen trash can in another room is theft, vandalism, and mortgage terrorism.

On November 12, 2019, Idaho law enforcement allowed and facilitated both of these items being thrown into a trash can. Packing tubes were available. Crumbling them up and throwing them away sums up the wrongful foreclosure, invasion and raid of our Idaho Ranch in one fatal photo op. Our God-given, Constitutionally guaranteed rights and pleas for relief from persecution, oppression, and tyranny have been thrown away by those who swore to uphold the Constitution. Who made the choice to do this? The Clearwater County Sheriff? One of his deputies? The Idaho State Police? This is not okay and should outrage every American. Liberty and justice is for all, not just most, and all includes our family, the Nick and Donna Nickerson Family. It also includes you. However, if we can be denied liberty and justice, will it soon be denied for you?


Quote from North American Van Lines on moving electronics...

Tips for Packing Your Home Office or Den
Electronics Care
If the original carton and packing materials are no longer available, you may need to crate it prior to moving day. If the item can fit in another sturdy carton, line it with plenty of newsprint paper or styrofoam before packing. Seal and securely mark "Extremely Fragile" on the carton.
 
Office Furniture
Any modular office furniture will need to be dismantled prior to move day. Use tape to mark where pieces go together and keep the hardware together (including drawer pull) in one spot, like a plastic bag or coffee can.

Layer by layer we found irreparable damage on treasured and costly items. Electronics, furniture, office furnishings. Much will have to just be replaced...but you cannot replace the heirlooms, memories, gifts, and special memories associated with items that were destroyed. The magnitude of the damage is incalculable without going item by item and just adding it up, which is what we have been doing. Ridiculous losses occurred with not only with equipment, furniture, and instruments, but with supplies. So much was wasted. Unopened packages of laser ink that were ruined cost over $400.000 each. Specialty papers were exposed to extreme moisture changes. Each piece of paper has a cost. Each piece of equipment has a purpose. Item by item, it all adds up and is a bill those who committed these acts of theft, vandalism, and mortgage terrorism will soon get to pay.


TERRORISM
The use or threat of violence to intimidate or cause panic, esp. as a means of achieving a political end.
See 18 USCA § 2331.
“Terrorism as a tactic has a very long history and generally refers to the intentional use of terror-induced fear by an individual or group to amplify the effects of a strategic act of violence. It has often been associated with actors who are at a distinct military or tactical disadvantage against a larger threat or enemy, and who have a limited capacity to strike back on an equal or sustained basis; hence, the perceived need to use a strategy that would enhance an otherwise limited capacity. Nevertheless, it is also possible for dominant actors, including states, to utilize terror-based tactics, sometimes due to a perceived lack of more creative strategic options, and sometimes due to a sense of impunity and superiority. Regardless of the actors or their motivation, at least in contemporary practice, terrorism is always and everywhere in violation of international law.” Darren C. Zook, ‘Terrorism,’ in 4 The Oxford International Encyclopedia of Peace 145, 145 (Nigel J. Young ed., 2010).

Have you ever tried your skill at finding missing items in one of the I Spy book series or played I Spy with a friend? Do you remember Find What Is Out Of Place or Find As Many Items As You Can worksheets in elementary school or Highlights magazines? The concept is you try to find out of place or strategically placed objects that blend in with another picture to help you be more observant and develop your critical thinking skills. A fish might be located in the curve of a table leg. A hairbrush might be found in the branch of a tree. Take a look at these pictures. Can you imagine opening any storage unit and finding what you are seeing here? We can tell you it is an almost surreal experience. When we played I spy, all we spied was a mess with lots of willful and intentional destruction. And...it only got worse when we opened and inventoried the boxes. Our critical thinking skills irrefutably affirm those who packed these storage units maliciously intended and aggressively exerted their efforts toward hurting our personal belongings and trying to hurt, damage, and injure us.

Theft? Textbook and per the code. Vandalism? Absolutely. Without question. Terrorism? Ask Donald and Melania Trump what they would label it if someone emptied the White House or Mar-a-Lago and did this to their personal belongings? How about the Obamas? Clintons? Soros? Homeland Security, the United States Military, the Secret Service and others would all get called in if such acts occurred against any of these people. Yes, this is terrorism. Good, honorable, hard working American citizens are being terrorized by big banks because no one is willing to stand up and make the big banks play according to the rules. Jamie Dimon, Tim Sloan, and other legalized Lending Lords have no more rights to commit theft, vandalism, or terrorism against our family or yours than a homeless man in California, an illegal immigrant imported by a terrorist group, or even some technologically advanced robotic pigeon funded by global elitists. The land of the free advertises all men are created equal and endowed by our Creator of certain inalienable rights. Inalienable rights include property rights, religious freedoms, and due process. These rights cannot be taken, sold, lost, revoked, or digitally remastered or forged. Wake up, America!


With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible. Matthew 19:26

What a project was dropped into our lap over the 2019 holidays. Certainly, this was not how we were planning to spend Thanksgiving and Christmas this year. This is how we were rewarded by our fellow Americans for having paid our bills, made wise investments, being good stewards of our money and personal belongings, increasing our equity and net worth, and committing no act or inaction to warrant or justify any attack on our property or financial portfolio.

Inventorying the units and then the individual boxes consumed much of our time from Thanksgiving to Christmas. It was quite a project. The reality is we would probably still be at the storage units loading our stuff if God had not sent some precious moving angels to help us load the trucks and then others to offer to let us use their empty building to inventory the boxes. The maliciousness and intentional destruction of our personal belongings demonstrated a deep seated hatred and desire to hurt and injure us. We do not yet have the identities of all the villains driving this whole attack, but we are pretty sure we know who they work for and we know their payday for what they did to us will come Some Day.

There is much more to share and a lot more to show, but it suffices to say that all that has happened to us has been very wrong, hurtful, and malicious. How can you explain this type of hatred and animosity toward an innocent family who has done nothing to the men and women who destroyed our personal belongings? Many hateful lies, slanderous accusations, and uninformed misjudgments have been made about us since November 12th. The Bible teaches with well doing you put to silence the foolishness of ignorant men. We are continuing to do what we have done all along and that is to do the right thing. For those with ears to hear, please know this is not a foreclosure action and this is not an eviction. Even if there were ANY truth whatsoever it was a foreclosure, that we failed to make payments, or that we defaulted on our obligations, which we did not, what possible rationale or purpose could exist for destroying our stuff? The type of people who participated in this raid, invasion, and attack on our family have allowed themselves to join forces with evil and become very dangerous operatives against what is supposed to be a free society. We are standing against this targeted persecution, oppression and tyranny because it is the right thing to do. Too many sacrificed and gave their lives for us to look the other way and allow what has happened to us to continue.

What can you do to help? Get involved and help us stop the attack on our family and help others who have also been attacked. Stand with us and help us share our story. Help us get our remaining personal belongings back. What happened to us is not okay in America. At least, it is not okay with the Nick and Donna Nickerson Family. We are fighting back. Will you?


NOTE: More documentation and an inventory of damages will be available soon. We are publishing these pages so those who care and have heard what happened in the move can see at least some of the pictures. The unpacking of our boxes revealed extreme malice, hatred, and intentional attempts to inflict emotional distress on our family. No logical, moral, ethical or lawful reason exists that can justify the malicious behavior of those who moved our personal belongings. Toilet water was poured over kitchen spices and handmade dish rags and potholders. Sawdust was dumped onto kitchen paper products. Kitchen utensils were placed inside chicken yard muck boots that movers brought inside the house from outside porches. Dirty tools from the workshop, muck boots, toilet brushes, and rat traps were boxed with kitchen items. And the list goes on...

It Happened To Us - Idaho Ranch Theft, Vandalism, Acts of Mortgage Terrorism
Our family is camping on a hillside above our ranch to watch over the remainder of our belongings until they are rightfully returned to us. Personal pets, as well as treasures and significant agricultural investments, are still on the ranch. After releasing false statements regarding the removal of all our personal belongings to the public on November 13th, Chris Goetz and Clearwater County refused to provide any further assistance in retrieving our left behind belongings. North American Van Lines refused to speak with us and re-directed all inquiries to Chris Goetz. A self-proclaimed gunmen hired by JPMorgan Chase, Jim Meyers of Kooskia, Idaho, was given the keys to our ranch by Chris Goetz. JAS Properties and Altisource were placed in charge of the property, but Altisource and JAS properties refused to speak with us after they were informed what the movers had done. All parties referred us directly to Lewis Stoddard at Aldridge Pite, the firm allegedly representing PHH. Lewis Stoddard and Aldridge Pite have ignored and failed to answer our written and verbal requests and demands or make contact with us in any way other than to send us a notice that Lewis Stoddard was no longer working with Aldridge Pite as of the end of the year. All parties involved and governing officials have been provided personal knowledge, facts, and evidence that lawfully mandate they tell the truth and disclose everything that has been illegally done in this matter. Whether they have the character to do so or not, time will tell the truth. Actually, time will tell much of what has happened to us, disclose who did it, and will openly identify all who stood by and did nothing to stop it. Time and the truth will set us free and preserve our inalienable rights.
