Meaning, Bundy has the local sheriff in his pocket. A very good reason not to let local law enforcement call the shots. However, Reid has said the Sheriff is currently working with federal officials on putting together a task force to deal with the Bundy family. It's not over.
the "local sheriff" is located in Las Vegas and is hardly in the pocket of a small-town rancher like Bundy....

Harry Reid is up to his neck in bribes over this deal.....

Funny isn't it? This has been going on since 1993 yet they have determined it is Obama who should be doing something about it. Somehow he lacks "moral authority" but Bush didn't? Silly twits.

February 12, 2008:
"WASHINGTON (CNN)-- American fighter jets intercepted two Russian bombers, one of which buzzed a U.S. aircraft carrier in the western Pacific on Saturday, U.S. military officials told CNN Monday.
Russia's Defense Ministry said Tuesday that there was no violation of flight regulations during the incident. A ministry official said the flights are standard operating procedure for air force training.
One of them twice flew about 2,000 feet over the deck of the USS Nimitz Saturday while another flew about 50 miles away, officials said. Two others were at least 100 miles away, the military reported.
U.S. defense officials said four F/A-18A fighter jets from the Nimitz were in the air.
The Russians and the U.S. carrier did not exchange verbal communications."

" These were the names of some of the leaders of Simeon's wealthy clans, who traveled to the region of Gedor, in the east part of the valley, seeking pastureland for their flocks. They found lush pastures there, and the land was quiet and peaceful. Some of Ham's descendants had been living in the region of Gedor. But during the reign of King Hezekiah of Judah, the leaders of Simeon invaded it and completely destroyed the homes of the descendants of Ham and of the Meunites. They killed everyone who lived there and took the land for themselves, because they wanted its good pastureland for their flocks. Five hundred of these invaders from the tribe of Simeon went to Mount Seir, led by Pelatiah, Neariah, Rephaiah, and Uzziel Ė all sons of Ishi. They destroyed the few Amalekites who had survived, and they have lived there ever since.- 1 Chronicles 4:38-43 "

Wow.

Bundy talks like most of the reich wing nuts here. The similarities are just so astounding!!!!

http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/U/US_RAN...

"...On Thursday during an outdoor news conference near his ranch 80 miles from Las Vegas, he echoed the same sentiment: "Are they slaves to charities and government subsidized homes? And are they slaves when their daughters are having abortions and their sons are in the prisons? This thought goes back a long time."

A statement on the official Bundy Ranch Facebook page Thursday said that Bundy was a "good man, he loves all people, he is not a racist man." Bundy explained that he wasn't saying anyone should be enslaved today.

Politicians who had defended Bundy quickly issued statements condemning the remarks.

"His remarks on race are offensive, and I wholeheartedly disagree with him," said Paul, a Kentucky senator.

Heller, who last week called Bundy defenders "patriots" for their stand against the government, "completely disagrees with Mr. Bundy's appalling and racist statements, and condemns them in the most strenuous way," said his spokeswoman, Chandler Smith...."
Yeah

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.
lol! And there it is! The San Jose 'expert.'

"U.S. seeks multibillion-dollar settlement with Bank of America

By Jessica Silver-Greenberg & Ben Protess

New York Times

POSTED: 07:31 p.m. HST, Apr 24, 2014
LAST UPDATED: 07:49 p.m. HST, Apr 24, 2014

ASSOCIATED PRESS
A Bank of America branch is shown in Charlotte, N.C. on April 16, 2010.

The Justice Department, building on a multibillion-dollar mortgage settlement with JPMorgan Chase last year, is aiming for a deal with Bank of America.

In a move that raised the stakes for the government's crackdown on banks that sold troubled mortgage investments during the financial crisis, the Justice Department made Bank of America an opening settlement offer of roughly $20 billion several weeks ago, according to people briefed on the matter.

But that amount is a somewhat inflated starting point for negotiations, and Bank of America has not yet made a counteroffer, according to the people who were not authorized to speak publicly.

The initial offer, the people said, included money earmarked for a settlement with the Federal Housing Finance Authority, a regulatory agency. After the Justice Department made that offer, Bank of America reached a separate $6.3 billion cash deal with the regulator. Because of this, the Justice Department's remaining request has shrunk significantly.

By one measure, Bank of America will ultimately pay about $16 billion to settle every investigation into its sale of mortgage securities before the 2008 financial crisis. That estimate, widely circulated among bank executives and lawyers, would include the $6.3 billion pact already reached with the housing regulator. The remainder would cover penalties paid to the Justice Department, as well as to state and federal regulators, and a few billion dollars aimed at providing relief to struggling homeowners.

A Justice Department spokeswoman declined to comment, as did a spokesman for Bank of America. Bloomberg News reported certain details of the talks earlier.

The settlement negotiations with Bank of America are playing out as the government is under pressure to extract eye-popping penalties from Wall Street for its role in the financial crisis. For the Justice Department, blamed for its slow response to the financial crisis, the latest civil investigations into JPMorgan and Bank of America suggest that the Obama administration's crackdown on Wall Street is gaining momentum.

At the center of the Justice Department's investigations is Wall Street's mortgage machine, which churned out billions of dollars in securities from 2005 to 2008. Many of those investments later imploded."
