Nickerson Family Appeal To Heaven
An Appeal To Heaven
We, the Nickerson Family, appeal to Heaven to protect and preserve our family, home, country, and lives. May God grant us His grace, courage, strength, guidance, direction, and peace to stand and fight for liberty and justice for all.

Will you fight back when it happens to you?
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

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

What Will You Do When It Happens To You?

Our family is still holding a vigil overlooking our Idaho Ministry Ranch.
We are fighting for freedom and justice for all in faith, prayer, and action.

What is happening to us is happening in America.

This is what 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 stolen in an attack that began at our Idaho ranch, then expanded to include our Montana home and our entire financial portfolio. Both ranches are being wrongfully foreclosed though we did nothing wrong to warrant or justify this attack. This is not a money, lost wages, upside down equity, default, bankruptcy, 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 and property ownership. 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, over a decade. 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 with authority 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 Idaho ministry 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. Our Montana home was sold at public auction on February 12, 2020. Not because we failed to make payments or defaulted on our obligations, but because we are being punished for disfavored worldviews and our commitment to our faith.

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. To quote Benjamin Franklin, Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are. Will you take a stand for justice? 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 happened to us, it has happened to you.

Was any of what has happened to us warranted or justified?
No. Absolutely not. Two of our ranches are being foreclosed without the foreclosing entity having any lawful ownership in our property, without us owing the foreclosing entity any debt, and without any verified or authenticated account records demonstrating we defaulted on any alleged debt. No trial by jury, due process, or a full and fair contest of the facts has occurred. The big banks falsely claimed default when all truth proves we exerted heroic efforts to make every payment we were allowed to make and admirably fulfilled all obligations regarding our ranches. The foreclosing entities have admitted we attempted to make payments and they refused them. The county records and filings prove the banks collusively committed fraud. Can any act or inaction committed by us warrant or justify what has happened to our family? No. Absolutely not. In a free country, what is warranted is a federal investigation into the corruption, racketeering, and other criminal acts driving these wrongful foreclosure actions. In a free country, what is justified is for the banks to be forced to provide account records, notations, taped conversations, witness testimonies that prove we did not default and comprehensively expose their criminal activity, offer public apologies for their slanderous claims and defamatory accusations, make restitution for the damages and injuries they have caused, and display genuine reform if they want to continue banking in America. In a free country, what has happened to us should never have happened to anyone and should never be allowed to happen again.

It Happened To Us - Idaho Ranch Invasion and Raid
Prayer Vigil and Watch - Day 378

November 23, 2020 - TERRORISM IN IDAHO. Our personal property still on our Idaho Ranch is being burned, damaged, stolen, and hauled away as trash. Why? Religious persecution. Mortgage terrorism. Judicial tyranny. Big bank despotism.

Grave miscarriages of justice are happening in Idaho. On November 12, 2019, the police powers of the State of Idaho raided our private property. 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, but an appeal over ownership was in place. We were irrefutably in rightful and lawful possession. 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. The sheriff lied, betrayed us, and lured us away from our private property. 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 personal property exist. Armed gunmen have blocked and prevented us from returning to our property ever since. 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 provided. Pray and get involved.

Montana Ranch Public Auction
Today is November 23, 2020. GRAVE MISCARRIAGES OF JUSTICE IN MONTANA. A highway robbery has occurred. Our Montana home has been sold at public auction. We have possession for one year.

Do we still own a home in Montana? Our Montana home and ranch was unlawfully and allegedly sold to HSBC Bank at public auction on February 12, 2020. We have the right to remain in possession for a one year redemption period. We are challenging the validity and authenticity of the sale and are pursuing wrongful foreclosure, racketeering, and associated claims in federal courts and arenas. We made our payments, fulfilled all our obligations, and did not default on our loan with Wells Fargo Private Bank in Helena, Montana. Attorney Erika Peterman of Peterman Law and RCO Legal (Routh, Crabtree, Olsen) claimed HSBC Bank had standing to foreclose based on two void assignments and an alleged, but unvalidated default. The assignment alleged our loan was put into a closed Trust in contravention of the Trust twice (an impossibility) - Wells Fargo Mortgage Backed Securities 2007-7 Trust File No. 333-137620-12. According to New York law, these assignments are void. According to Montana law, it is a nullity to assign a Mortgage without a Note. According to the Trust agreements our Note was allegedly assigned into and the alleged Mortgage contract, no condition precedents that could permit foreclosure had been met. HSBC Bank could not legally own our property in Montana in 2010 or 2012 per Montana law. We provided proof of receipt we did not default, and that HSBC had no standing. However, District Court Mike Menahan granted a wrongful foreclosure summary judgment to HSBC Bank on January 22, 2015. We received the judgment on January 23, 2015, filed an appeal as pro se litigants, and the Montana Supreme Court remanded it back to the District Court on May 3, 2016. Kenneth Lay of Crowley Fleck of Helena, Montana, represented HSBC's right to foreclose in the Supreme Court briefing.

Even though the remand was a win for us to conduct discovery and present evidence of Wells Fargo's prevention of performance, Wells Fargo violated state and federal laws and regulatory guidelines and refused all access to our account records and forbid their employees from testifying or providing affidavits on our behalf. Wells Fargo denied involvement in the foreclosure to avoid consequence for violating their 2012 settlement agreements with Montana. This denial precluded any Montana governing oversight. District Court Judge Mike Menahan prejudicially acted as a bank court and blocked and quashed all discovery attempts during the remand. He then ignored
sworn witness testimony and affidavit evidence to tyrannically cause his summary judgment in favor of the bank to be affirmed on August 22, 2017. No affidavits, testimony, verified records, not even a signed complaint were ever provided by HSBC Bank. HSBC Bank (aka Hongkong Shanghai Banking Corporation) does not own any debt against our ranch. HSBC Bank denied any involvement in the foreclosure whatsoever, and Wells Fargo escaped discovery by denying involvement as well. Both Erika Peterman and Kenneth Lay failed to provide a proof of authority per MCA 27-61-402. Judge Menahan ignored our requests to make them. Hillary R. McCormack of Lundberg & Associates from Salt Lake City, Utah, and Kenneth Lay of Crowley Fleck of Helena, Montana directed the Lewis and Clark County Office of the Sheriff to hold the public auction. Deputy Clint Pullman of Helena, Montana conducted an unlawful sale on the courthouse steps. Numerous violations and irregularities in the sale render the sale unlawful and are being addressed.

How can our our property rights be revoked if we made our payments? Judicial tyranny. Acute regulatory failure. Crony capitalism. Racketeering. American citizens being willing to just follow orders and not do the right thing out of fear of reprisal. Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. and HSBC Bank are stealing our ranch for an amazing windfall and to further the persecution of our family for our Christian faith and opposing worldviews. Wells Fargo and JPMorgan Chase have been relentlessly targeting us for years. No one with the authority to help has been willing to get involved. We endured and kept fighting back to save our Idaho Ministry Ranch and so they went after our Montana home. This is NOT an ordinary foreclosure, eviction, or civil action. This IS foreclosure terrorism and persecution. America, if they can do it to our family, they can do it to you.

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, notice, and outside any lawful authority, on Tuesday, November 12, 2019. The summary...

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.

What is going on in Idaho? How can this be happening in America?
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 as the Supreme Law of the Land 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 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.

In The News - What Is Happening To Our Family Is Happening To Others
Have we all so soon forgotten the travesties and tragedies inscribed in the annals of world history that all good men promised to, Never Forget? The blind hatred of fellow men, prejudices against different just because it was different, greed for what another had, and an indifference to the fate of others have caused evil men to target and attack the innocent throughout history. Yes, what is happening to us has happened and is happening to others. Freedom and justice for all finds, one home being wrongfully foreclosed is one too many. Freedom and justice for all determines, one innocent person being wrongfully condemned is one too many. Freedom and justice for all believes, one person of faith being wrongfully persecuted is one too many. Millions have needlessly suffered because freedom and justice were silenced in the streets. When Paul Reveres of today tried to ride through the country sounding the alarm, their stories were shot down and investigations were buried under corruption and racketeering rubble. This collection of articles represents only some of what has happened to others. Big banks are targeting innocent families. Why, oh why, were the enforcers of freedom and justice silent when the first one too many occurred? Did they forget their promises to never forget, to be the bulwarks of freedom and justice? Never forget. Never let it happen again. Big banks are not too big to go to jail. One too many is one too many.
