The Democrat 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.


Don't you think if the CRA was the problem that you f*cking idiots could find another article instead of posting this one over & over.

It just proves that there is yet another right whiner trying to push blame away from those at fault. Those who had been running each & very department ofd the federal government for at least 6 years. Congressional Committees basically run by Republicans for 12 years.

So, do you call yourself Richard III because you;re a third generational dick?

WASHINGTON (Reuters)- All U.S. states except for Delaware have escaped the possibility of falling back into recession, as they reap the rewards of strong private-sector employment and a burgeoning energy sector, according to an analysis released on Tuesday.

Moody's Analytics, which tracks state and metropolitan economies, added Illinois, Wisconsin and Alabama to its list of states in recovery. That left Delaware alone in its "at risk of recession" category.

Moody's Analytics, a unit of Moody's evaluates economics and financial risk around the world. A separate unit, the credit ratings agency Moody's Investors Service, recently said the outlook for states is now stable, after five years of being negative.

"The labor market recoveries in those three states were lagging behind," said Moody's Analytics Associate Economist Brent Campbell.

But over the last six months, private-sector jobs have grown in Alabama. Chicago, where the financial services sector is strong, is leading the Illinois economy into stable territory.

I can't imagine anything worse than two million bikers driving down the street and disturbing everyone else's peace. Hopefully police will take this opportunity to cite bikers for modified mufflers, driving without eye protection, illegal handlebar height, lane splitting, and/or driving without a helmut.

There's a lot of outright lies and unproven innuendos though. The only reason for these is the fact that he's black and has a funny name. If not for that you wouldn't even bother making up these fabrications.
You're an idiot DB!
Let's see....

Look at a photo of Obama and Frank Marshal Davis, then look at a photo of Obama Jr. and Obama Sr. Obviously, Frank Marshal Davis is Obama's biological father.

Obama, himself, declared himself to be a citizen of Indonesia when he attended Occidental College, and his name was Barry Soetoro. Obama went to Pakistan in 1981. Pakistan was on the State Department's no-travel list in 1981. Therefore, it would have been impossible for Obama to travel to Pakistan with a US passport. Therefore, Obama was not a US citizen.
Nobody has ever been able to find anyone who ever met Obama at Columbia. Left wingnut PBS had to ignore that part of his life when they produced a documentary promoting Obama in 2012 because they couldn't find anyone who ever met Obama at Columbia. This is consistent with the statement of the president of the class Obama was supposed to be in, and Fox News findings after they called and talked to 400 people in Obama's class and couldn't find one person who ever knew him.
Obama was a college dropout at Occidental.
Obama never attended classes at Columbia.
Someone who worked and made the sacrifices to be admitted to Harvard was denied so some college dropout who never attended classes at Columbia with very high-level connections in the Communist Party USA could get a fraudulent entry in their fraudulent resume.

Now, here's something interesting. This indicates a conspiracy.

Obama's name at Occidental was Barry Soetoro.
Ann Dunham references "Barry Soetoro" in a letter to her employer, the Ford Foundation, requesting use of travel benefits for dependent children at a university so Obama can travel to Indonesia in 1981, which is when he also went to Pakistan.
Obama supposedly transferred from Occidental to Columbia. Therefore, his name at Columbia would have been Barry Soetoro.

Someone here produced a link showing the name "Barack Hussein Obama" on a list of graduates published by Columbia. Well, his name was Barry Soetoro when he supposedly transferred from Occidental to Columbia.

Obama is a fraud. Everything you are told about him is a lie.

Ok, for the very, very ignorant people ... you, in particular.
The economy collapses when a significant amount of assets disappears from the economy.
Can you tell us when that happened?
I'll help you:
On September 16, 2008, failures of massive financial institutions in the United States, due primarily to exposure of securities of packaged subprime loans and credit default swaps issued to insure these loans and their issuers, rapidly devolved into a global crisis resulting in a number of bank failures in Europe and sharp reductions in the value of equities (stock) and commodities worldwide.
Now, was this a conspiracy by the Democrats to collapse the economy?
Stocks skidded September 29, 2008, with the Dow slumping nearly 778 points, in the biggest single-day point loss ever, after the Democrat-controlled House rejected the government's $700 billion bank bailout plan.
The day's loss knocked out approximately $1.2 trillion in market value, the first post-$1 trillion day ever, according to a drop in the Dow Jones Wilshire 5000, the broadest measure of the stock market.
If you also look at the steady stream of lies from Christopher Dodd and Barney Frank all the way up to the crash, it sure looks like it.
So, you are claiming everything was great until September 16, 2008.

Or do you think that is when everybody found out how serious it was?

The market had been falling but it was the news of the impending financial collapse that caused the nose dive.

It took time to get it to that the point of near collapse. You have failed to show a single Democrat action since Jan of 2007 that caused it.

A Nation of Birthers

The United States of Paranoia: A Conspiracy Theory

As elaborate and bewildering as they often seem, conspiracy theories address a very simple psychological need: they offer an explanation for evil. This is why conspiracy theories always proliferate in the shadow of great trauma, such as that produced by World War I, the assassination of JFK, and 9/11.

But conspiracy theories also have a political function: they provide ideologues, partisans, and religious zealots with a narrative to explain away their defeats and to cast their mission in the dramatic, even apocalyptic, language of good versus evil. Sadly, some radicalized conservatives became a case study in this phenomenon following the election of Barack Obama as president in 2008.

Tea Party activists, fringe libertarians such as Alex Jones, and even some commentators on Fox News, have compared Obamacare to policies imposed by the Nazis, spread debunked theories about the president’s birthplace, and claimed that he has a secret plan to destroy the American economy (the so-called “Cloward-Piven strategy”) so he can construct a socialist worker state on its ashes. Others accused Obama of plotting with the Muslim Brotherhood to impose shariah on the United States or of conspiring to send political dissidents to FEMA camps. These theories are not embraced by mainstream Republicans or libertarians, but they have nonetheless provided liberal critics with an easy avenue to discredit conservative politicians and ideas.
