Depopulating An Entire Region Of Our Country

It was demonstrated that both the US government and the Chinese government are engaged in an Agenda 21 motivated plot to relocate rural and suburban residents to more densely populated urban centers to live in overcrowded conditions where a person’s every movement and every activity is monitored. The previously described policies are proving effective in moving populations into densely populated urban centers in accordance with Agenda 21 policy. However, the process is not as speedy as the globalists had hoped. The global elite needed a game changing event in the United States. In order to speed things up, the elite bankers at Goldman Sachs masterminded the Gulf oil spill to this end...

What eludes them is Bush "inherited" a recession after the dot-com bubble burst. The same dot-com bubble Clinton capitalized on and, luckily, was able to exit the stage before it went boom.
So Bush basically got stuck with the dot-com crash and 9/11 right after Clinton said, "Exit stage right!" like Snagglepuss.
You like to lie about history to fit your own lies. When Clinton transferred the Presidency over to Bush43 in 2001 the government budget had a surplus and the country was enjoying better economic growth and prosperity then it has ever had since the 1960's.

Yes, skippy the LEFT has been posting anti-Bush section of the article without acknowledging Clinton and others listed too.
Son we KNOW Clinton signed GLB. It's a fact. It's historical.

The funny part is cons just don't accept any responsibility in the destruction process, especially with the repeal of Glass-Steagal. Or the the fact it was capitalism that screwed the pooch on this.

Once again, a false assumption that failure of a large bank or large corporation would create a depression.

If GM had declared bankruptcy in the normal manner, the company would likely have reorganized under new management and continued operations. If not, there were plenty of other automakers with the capacity to meet the demand for automobiles (except perhaps those who prefer crummy, overpriced cars).

And now you're telling me that you oppose U S Constitution civil right equal housing laws . A pewrson ought to have a right to live wherever he damn well pleases and not be forced by the prejudice or racism of others to live someplace else.
Really?

What about the rights of the citizens of a town to decide that they don't want low-income subsidized housing?

There is no Constitutional right to equal housing.

The Constitutional Accountability Center on Tuesday condemned the Supreme Court's striking of Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act, which the think tank said prevents Congress from exercising its rightful power to stop the practice of racial discrimination in voting.

"Today is a sad day for all Americans who care about protection of one our most fundamental rights, the right to vote," said David Gans, the center's civil rights director, in a press release. "In striking down a core provision of the Voting Rights Act, the Court flouts the text and history of the Fifteenth Amendment, which expressly give to Congress broad powers to prevent and deter all forms of racial discrimination in voting.

"As Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg explained in a powerful dissent," he continued. "Congress properly used these broad constitutional powers to prevent current and ongoing racial discrimination in voting concentrated in the covered jurisdictions.

"Justice Ginsburg further explained that Congress was not required to update the coverage formula, because the Voting Rights Act's 15,000-page record in 2006 shows that pre-clearance continues to cover the jurisdictions with the worst record of voting discrimination."

Did the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) Lead to Risky Lending?

Sumit Agarwal, Efraim Benmelech, Nittai Bergman, Amit Seru

NBER Working Paper No. 18609
Issued in December 2012
NBER Program(s): AP CF

Yes, it did. We use exogenous variation in banks’ incentives to conform to the standards of the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) around regulatory exam dates to trace out the effect of the CRA on lending activity. Our empirical strategy compares lending behavior of banks undergoing CRA exams within a given census tract in a given month to the behavior of banks operating in the same census tract-month that do not face these exams. We find that adherence to the act led to riskier lending by banks: in the six quarters surrounding the CRA exams lending is elevated on average by about 5 percent every quarter and loans in these quarters default by about 15 percent more often. These patterns are accentuated in CRA-eligible census tracts and are concentrated among large banks. The effects are strongest during the time period when the market for private securitization was booming.

The CRA and the revamping of it during the Clinton years is the Democrats' baby.

I know how much you Republicans hate letting individuals make their own choices and take responsibility for the consequences of those choices but that's just how a free society's supposed to work.

No. Obama spoke generically about "acts of terror", but did not specifically call Benghazi an act of terror. This was clearly intentional, to give him deniability either way.
It's like bushie not tying the attack on the US to his invasion of iraq.

But the only card that could save him was finding the wmd's, and he failed to do that.

So that lie blew up exponentially.

You live in such a bubble.

With people reduced to wearing mask when they venture outside; schools forced to cancel outdoor activities and field trips; parents with means choosing schools based on air-filtration systems; and some international schools building gigantic, futuristic-looking domes over sports fields to ensure healthy breathing, China has paid a terrible price for their reliance on Coal-fired Power plants.

Just this month Hong Kong adopted measures to improve their air quality including a mandate that coal-fired power plants provide detailed environmental information to the public. They have ordered them to reduce their emissions "for each unit of economic output by 30 percent by the end of 2017."

Public outcries stopped the construction of coal-fired power plants in the southern provinces of Guangdong and Hainan and Beijing (where levels of deadly pollutants are up to 40 times the recommended exposure limit) is "reducing its consumption of heavily polluting coal."
