S2:E5 – When the Foundation Rots, Systems Collapse

Join us as Steve Grumbine, Patrick Lovell, and Eric Vaughan take the audience into the real world experiences of the one and only John O’Brien and Jeff Thigpen, two incredible public servants, men of courage and integrity who are quite probably the only two keepers of land records in America committed to the reliability of these records. These men discovered monumental fraud in the housing bubble and notified everyone from Elizabeth Warren to Eric Holder to the New York Times and Matt Taibbi, but no one came to look. 

But Eric and Patrick did, and they discovered O’Brien had uncovered hundreds of thousands of pieces of documentation fraud emanating from MERS and Robo Signing that led to millions of wrongful foreclosures that were bulldozed by corrupt courts across the country. O’Brien and Thigpen had the courage to do what was right in a world of a whole lot of wrong.   

This episode is monumentally bigger than Deep Throat and Watergate.  Monumentally bigger than Oliver North and Contragate.  It’s even monumentally larger than Trump and the Insurrection that will never be held accountable because we have become that corrupt.
