The Nick and Donna Nickerson Family
A Family Under Siege
Letter to the Editor
Published August, 2019

Please let it be known that there is building here within the inland northwest another situation that could yet prove as volatile and dangerous as what occurred in Bunkerville, Nevada and Burns, Oregon a few years ago. At issue here is the rightful ownership of the Nickerson Christian Retreat Ranch acreage, in Orofino, Idaho. Following a series of capricious, "legal" actions on the part of JPMorgan Chase Bank and PHH Mortgage Services (allowed by a Clearwater County Court judge and prosecuting attorney), this property and the lives of this family continue under siege. What needs to be seriously investigated is the real WHY of the matter, seeing as it involves nothing of tax protests nor mortgage defaults.

In August of 2017, this ranch was arbitrarily sold at public auction, before the victim family was ever even allowed a jury trial, a right mandated and guaranteed under the 7th Article of our Bill of Rights. The good county Sheriff mistakenly believed he had to carry out the orders of a local judge and prosecutor, forgetting that he alone holds the supreme power as chief protector of the rights of his people. Thus, every action subsequent to this error must rightfully be declared null and void, and reversed.

I'm merely one concerned citizen, asking like-minded fellow citizens everywhere to be alert to, and speak out against, all such forms of legal abuse posing as lawful authority. As Americans we all need to stand firm in knowing that, as stated in Article VI of the U.S. Constitution, every government official — including judges and attorneys — are sworn under solemn oath to uphold this supreme Law of our Land. And in this present case, the three elected Clearwater County Commissioners also have a duty to stand with and behind their Sheriff, unitedly demanding for the Nickersons their constitutional right of due process.
