Honda Motor Co., based in Tokyo, Japan, will be recalling an additional 437,000 vehicles in what has become an ongoing, 15-month process that involves cars around the globe. Faulty airbags are the culprit for the recall, which was originally announced in November, 2008. Honda will be replacing driver side air bag inflators that can apparently deploy when too much pressure is applied to them, potentially causing injury or death. Of the additional vehicles that are being recalled, 378,000 are in the U.S., while 41,000 are in Canada and 17,000 in Japan. The total recall from Honda is now affecting 952,118 vehicles in total, including some Honda vehicles that go all the way back to 2001.

New Obama Executive Order: Marshal Law Part 1.

New Obama Executive Order: Marshal law Part 1.

Breaking News – Obama Signs New Executive Order
Monday, 11 January 2010 19:07 Press Release Latest National News

This new order, along with many other Obama Executive Orders, is very scary when compared to

the book of Revelation and end times Bible prophecy. It is especially scary when given the

scenario of a marshal law situation in the United States. I am not saying that President

Obama is the anti-christ, mark of the beast, or that this is the 7 heads and 10 horns spoken

of in Revelation but I will say it does sure seem to line up that way! There also seems to

be a possibility of America being Babylon, along with the great harlot spoken of in Revelation 17 and 18. If so, this may

be a conformation of many conspiracy theories that say the government is actually up to a

planned economic collapse in order to bring about a New World Order, or One World

Government. Or others that speak of American False Flag Attacks as proposed on Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura. For more please see our website www.CityChurchFellowship.com we are now tracking

this along with many end times news stories.

Foreclosure Litigation With James Kowalski

The paperwork mess muddying home foreclosures erupted last month. But the legal strategy behind it traces to a lawyer’s gambit in 2006 that has helped keep one couple in their home six years beyond their last mortgage payment.

Lillian and Robert Jackson stopped paying on their home in Jacksonville, Fla., in 2004 when business dropped off at their cleaning company. Eviction might have seemed inevitable when they faced a foreclosure hearing two years later.

But their lawyer, James Kowalski, had the idea of taking a deposition from the signer of the mortgage papers. When a document processor for GMAC Mortgage admitted she routinely signed such papers without being familiar with details of the loans, she was tagged as one of a species now known as robo-signers.

It was a first step in the growth of a legal sub-specialty called foreclosure defense that has sown confusion and turmoil in the housing market. Lawyers in the field now commonly use a technique more identified with corporate litigation: probing depositions, designed to uncover any lapses in judgment, flaws in a process or wrongdoing. In the 23 states where foreclosures entail a court hearing, the bank may be ordered to pay the homeowner’s legal bill if a lawyer can convince a judge that the bank has submitted false documents, such as affidavits saying employees personally reviewed the details of loans when they didn’t.
