The Government-Created Subprime Mortgage Meltdown
by Thomas J. DiLorenzo
The thousands of mortgage defaults and foreclosures in the "subprime" housing market (i.e., mortgage holders with poor credit ratings) is the direct result of thirty years of government policy that has forced banks to make bad loans to un-creditworthy borrowers. The policy in question is the 1977 Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), which compels banks to make loans to low-income borrowers and in what the supporters of the Act call "communities of color" that they might not otherwise make based on purely economic criteria.
The original lobbyists for the CRA were the hardcore leftists who supported the Carter administration and were often rewarded for their support with government grants and programs like the CRA that they benefited from. These included various "neighborhood organizations," as they like to call themselves, such as "ACORN" (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now). These organizations claim that over $1 trillion in CRA loans have been made, although no one seems to know the magnitude with much certainty. A U.S. Senate Banking Committee staffer told me about ten years ago that at least $100 billion in such loans had been made in the first twenty years of the Act.
So-called "community groups" like ACORN benefit themselves from the CRA through a process that sounds like legalized extortion. The CRA is enforced by four federal government bureaucracies: the Fed, the Comptroller of the Currency, the Office of Thrift Supervision, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. The law is set up so that any bank merger, branch expansion, or new branch creation can be postponed or prohibited by any of these four bureaucracies if a CRA "protest" is issued by a "community group." This can cost banks great sums of money, and the "community groups" understand this perfectly well. It is their leverage. They use this leverage to get the banks to give them millions of dollars as well as promising to make a certain amount of bad loans in their communities.
what do you expect a white supremacist to say?

Inaugural Address (5 March 1877).]
[General education is the best preventive of the evils now most dreaded. In the civilized countries of the world, the question is how to distribute most generally and equally the property of the world. As a rule, where education is most general the distribution of property is most general.... As knowledge spreads, wealth spreads. To diffuse knowledge is to diffuse wealth. To give all an equal chance to acquire knowledge is the best and surest way to give all an equal chance to acquire property.
Diary (15 May 1878).]
[ The real difficulty is with the vast wealth and power in the hands of the few and the unscrupulous who represent or control capital. Hundreds of laws of Congress and the state legislatures are in the interest of these men and against the interests of workingmen. These need to be exposed and repealed. All laws on corporations, on taxation, on trusts, wills, descent, and the like, need examination and extensive change. This is a government of the people, by the people, and for the people no longer. It is a government of corporations, by corporations, and for corporations.— How is this?
Diary (11 March 1888]).]

[ Abolish plutocracy if you would abolish poverty. As millionaires increase, pauperism grows. The more millionaires, the more paupers.
Diary (16 February 1890).]
[The progress of society is mainly ... the improvement in the condition of the workingmen of the world.

Los Angeles had an election for Mayor yesterday.

The contest was between two leftwing white Jewish Democrats, Eric Garcetti and Wendy Greuel. Garcetti, the candidate of the homosexual community, beat Greuel, the candidate supported by organized labor.

The voter turnout was pathetic, less than 25%. Garcetti was elected Mayor of Los Angeles with about 180,000 votes.

The media agonize over the low turnout, failing to realize that there was absolutely zero difference between the candidates. Except for homosexuals and union activists.

Outgoing Mayor Tony Villa was interviewed by the media, but appeared to be intoxicated.

I thought Jim Crow was dead, Aunt Bettie Lou?'South Carolina governor appointed white supremacist to steering committee' He condemns "all efforts to mix the races of mankind." In February, the Republican governor announced she had formed the committee to explore her re-election options. Roan Garcia-Quintana of Greenville was listed as one of the 164 co-chairs.

The Anti-Defamation League has described Garcia-Quintana as a “white supremacist” and “a well-known leader” in the Coun­cil of Con­ser­v­a­tive Cit­i­zens. "... The group openly opposes the immi­gra­tion of “non-European and non-Western peo­ples into the United States” and condemns “all efforts to mix the races of mankind.” The Council of Conservative Citizens also believes the United States should not tolerate “sexual licentiousness, homosexuality and other perversions, mixture of the races, pornography in all forms, and subversion of the authority of parents.”

The NAACP described the Council of Conservative Citizens as “the largest white nationalist group in the country and direct descendant of the white Citizens Councils that fought to defend Jim Crow segregation during the 1950s and 1960s.” Check this out: http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2013/05/22/south-c...

Sorry if that bothers you, but it's called CAPITALISM.

Again, you take both sides of an issue. First you're all for corporations, defending their tax status, defending oil companies tax breaks, then you rail against them because they're doing well.

They're doing well because the economy is doing well, a fact that you idiots refuse to accept.

Roan Garcia-Quintana was born in Cuba and is hardly a "white supremacist." However, we realize that blacks hate non-black "Hispanics" as much as they hate Jews like you.

Meanwhile, the President of the United States of America, the most powerful person in the world, don't know nuthin bout nuthin.

A Crisis of Authority
This will be a scandal like Watergate if it turns out that the IRS was acting under orders from Barack Obama or Valerie Jarrett. If the White House's conduct turns out to be unimpeachable, then it is something far worse: a sign that the government itself has become a threat to the Constitution.
http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142412788...
You should read the entire article. It explains how the left came to feel entitled to rule with the "grandiose" Barack Obama being the personification of that attitude.
And why we now have a crisis of authority.
YUou are making your own accusation, based on hatred alone. Because there is nothing to indicate anything of the sort.

Regardless of what Rupert Murdoch puts in his WSJ, which is a sad copy of what it was before Murdoch bought it and turned it into FOX Yellow Journal.

"if it turns out"

That's a long way from a proven burglary and cover up committed by, I might add, a REPUBLICAN President, who was forced to resign in disgrace.

But idiots like you will cling to any sort of stupidity in your racist hatred for this man.
