I have just been talking to a New Jersey wills and trusts lawyer. A decedent made a bequest to a nationalist group in Georgia and the distribution has been very slow in coming. It turns out that New Jersey requires that any bequest to a charitable organization be reviewed and, apparently, approved by the Attorney General of New Jersey.The present Attorney General of New Jersey is Gurbir Grewal, the first Sikh to hold that office.
What is the requirement for approval? The attorney did not know. But it takes very little imagination to conjure the SPLC argument that charities are approved by the State and must serve the public interests.
It would appear wise for any people residing in New Jersey desiring to make a bequest to a charity consult with an attorney and consider a trust. Please spread this information around. The SPLC intervened in a Canadian will dispute and successfully blocked a bequest.
This idea — that State Attorneys General can block testamentary charitable bequests— is something new but it shouldn’t surprise us.
As our country becomes ever more Stalinistic and genuine dissent is virtually being criminalized, we can expect to see more and more states adopt policies that will allow the System to intervene and block testamentary bequests to causes the System does not like.
Even if the Courts uphold the bequests in the face of vetoes by State Attorneys General, the legal expenses of fighting out the issue to conclusion in the law system in most cases will exceed the amount of the bequest or at the very least substantially erode it.
The law in America does not allow you to recover your attorney’s fees against the State.
Here is the LESSON which I have preached many times to people who — as we heard in Church — seem to fit under the remarks “…ears have they but they hear not, eyes have they but they see not”:
ALL ORGANIZATIONS AND INDIVIDUALS INVOLVED IN GENUINE DISSENT IN MODERN AMERICA MUST ENCOURAGE POSSIBLE TESTAMENTARY DONORS TO USE A LIVING TRUST TO EFFECTUATE THE DISPOSITION OF THEIR ESTATES.
WILLS SHOULD BE USED AS A “BACK-UP” DOCUMENT:
1. TO COVER ASSETS THAT ARE MISTAKENLY NOT PUT INTO THE TRUST;
2. TO NAME A SYMPATHETIC EXECUTOR WHO, IF NECESSARY, CAN PROBATE THE WILL SO AS TO ESTABLISH HIMSELF AS THE PERSON LEGALLY EMPOWERED TO CHALLENGE THE TRUST. This is so the disgruntled heirs (egged on by the SPLC and its ilk) cannot go to the Probate Court and qualify as the representatives of the estate and file their court challenge in that capacity instead of just as what they are — disinherited heirs.
Trusts do not have to be probated. They are PRIVATE. The assets are distributed privately and confidentially by the Trustee. There is no public filing in a probate court where a minority or leftist employee or a nosy “investigator” from the SPLC can discover that money is being left to a disfavored cause.
To recipients who are much more “normal” than I am (sometimes referred to as being more of the nature of “normies” or “goody-goodies”): If you think your cause is not disfavored, think again. The System is painting with a wider and wider brush.
Even things like religiously based opposition to homosexuality now falls under the rubric of laws such as the hate crimes statutes. If a religiously motivated picketer gets into a pushing match at an LBGTQx event, a mere “simple assault” like pushing away the person shouting in your face becomes a hate crime felony in the hands of a politically motivated prosecutor.
NO ONE INVOLVED IN GENUINE DISSENT ON ANY ISSUE AFFECTING AN R.S.G. (“Regime Support Group” — feminists, Blacks, gays, cripples, Indians, Jews) IS IMMUNE FROM SYSTEM HARASSMENT AND LEGAL ACTIONS.
