The history of Washington includes thousands of years of Native American history before Europeans and Americans arrived and began to establish territorial claims. The region was part of Oregon Territory from 1848 to 1853, after which it was separated from Oregon and established as Washington Territory. In 1889, Washington became the 42nd state of the United States – and was recently screwed by its own legislature. [Source: Wikipedia]
On Tuesday, March 19, 2013 the Washington SENATE FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS, HOUSING & INSURANCE Committee met to discuss SB 1435, a law that excludes the need for the original promissory note – as a convenience to lenders, title insurance companies and the Washington Bankers Association – Mr.
See the hearing HERE.
The discussion was obviously lopsided as the dialogue concerning the need for an original note was booted out of consideration as Stu Halsan representing the Washington Land Title Association made some pointed remarks that should have had legislators standing on their ears. Instead, the IBG-YBG Washington House and Senate passed the bill which became effective on July 28, 2013.

WHAT DOES SB 1435 MEAN TO THE AVERAGE WASHINGTON HOMEOWNER?
Shelley Erickson, a business owner, along with a group of Washington residents and homeowners have been fighting bank foreclosure frauds, as well as other criminal behavior and have constructed a petition to repeal SB 1435. See and sign the petition HERE.
“SB 1435 was passed by the entire Washington Senate,” writes Erickson, “allowing mortgages to be re-conveyed without authentic notes and real parties of interest. This is against our constitutional property rights. What the measure enables is the laundering of ill-gotten gains, removing the ability to question as to whether or not it is stolen property – and of course negating the right of the person from which it was stolen to any legal remedy. These are the grounds on which I see it as unconstitutional. This amendment to RCW 61.24.110 which laid out a case for the lack of need (See RCW’s 61.24.020 and 61.16.020-.030) and alarmingly unconstitutional of the amendment, see reference (See Wash. Const. Art. IV Sec. 6). The amendment to RCW 61.24.110 causes the DTA to be unconstitutional.”
The petition continues:
Our forefathers wrote the US Constitution to:
Empowered Congress to protect intellectual property by authorizing copyright and patent laws (I-8-8).
* They granted Congress authority to punish piracy, a crime directed principally against property (I-8-10).
* They denied Congress and the states authority to pass ex post facto laws (I-9-3 and I-10), a ban that some of the Founders thought would protect property.
* When it became clear that the ban on ex post facto laws was not broad enough to protect property, they partially plugged the gap with the Fifth Amendment, which (1) prevented any person from being “deprived of . . . property, without due process of law” and (2) required compensation when “property [was] taken for public use.”
* They added a section (Article I, Section 10) with several provisions protecting financial assets against state governments.
* They granted the federal courts jurisdiction over interstate land claims and interstate debts to limit the extent to which state courts could discriminate against the property rights of out-of-staters (III-2-1 and III-2-2).
* They adopted the Fourth Amendment, which protected “persons, houses, papers, and effects” from unreasonable search and seizure.
* They added the Eighth Amendment, which barred excessive fines
* They also inserted a number of other checks and balances, designed partly to protect minorities from unfair property confiscations.
NOTE: . This bill now mistakenly passed by our Washington State Governor Inslee and the entire Washington State Senate in Olympia. This bill in general allows stolen property to be sold by thieves WITHOUT PROOF OF AUTHENTIC NOTES OR REAL PARTIES OF INTEREST.
Washington residents – please take the time to review the details and sign the petition – pass it along to your friends and family. Land is very valuable to you and your state – as Mark Twain once stated, “they’re not making any more of it.”
