Bizarre Events Unfold At Florida Bankruptcy Proceeding For RoboVault; Purported ‘Sovereign’ Claims To Derive Authority From ‘The Pope’

recommendedreading1EDITOR’S NOTE: This story in the Sun Sentinel was recommended by a reader. Indeed, Florida is serving up another strange one. To set the stage, RoboVault is a secure storage facility in Fort Lauderdale that allegedly is wasting away because its former owner, Marvin Chaney, somehow came to believe the facility is storing “sovereign bonds” worth billions of dollars and that RoboVault will get a cut when they are sold. The building now is under control of a bankruptcy trustee, who allegedly has been exposed to nuisancing.

A purported “sovereign” has entered the fray, reportedly claiming he has “superior jurisdiction” to the judge. James McBride, the purported “sovereign,” asserts he is “Postmaster General of North America” and reportedly claims his authority flows from the Pope in Rome.

Various “sovereigns” — including AdSurfDaily Ponzi story figure Kenneth Wayne Leaming — have referred to themselves as “postmaster.” McBride has done the same thing . . .

On Jan. 17, the Sun Sentinel led with this headline: “Wild RoboVault court hearing leaves one man in handcuffs, 2 others facing possible jail time.”

From the Sun Sentinel:

McBride, who claims to derive his authority from the Vatican, sent letters to the judge and trustee demanding the bankruptcy case be dropped. He previously has been profiled in media accounts as a “sovereign separatist,” someone who believes he is not subject to state and federal laws.

  1. I’m surprised that McBride did not declare himself a “Private Attorney General” like Kenneth Wayne Leaming has.

    Too many words and too complicated for idiots like this… Is there something
    wrong with the gene pool in this country?

  3. I´m not always fully in agreement with the reasons governments and courts do what they do. But this type of case makes with think these guys need to get out the house more.

    I don’t believe it is the gene pool, Rod. I believe it is criminals posing as leaders and patriots as they attack the government itself and symbols of U.S. Capitalism. I think they’re trying to make the United States suffer a mortal wound, a death of a thousand tiny cuts over time.

    The incongruities are striking: “Christians” leading cheers for felons and corrupt business systems, for instance. “Christians” engaging in paper terrorism and targeting judges, prosecutors, investigators and court-appointed receivers in Ponzi cases, for another example.

    The whole thing plays into misery and despair and is designed to create a bogeyman or figure of blame. It is laced with conspiracy theories, fantastic and magical constructions, and is constrained only by the limits of the imagination. If one reality collapses, a new one simply will be created to replace it.

  5. It is also notable that this guy is aligning himself with the Catholic Church, long known to hide and relocate pedophile priests in its ranks; they are the lowest form of life on this or any other planet.

  6. They should just impose the baker act and get it over with. Might keep the scammers out of Florida after awhile.
