No Foreclosures without Gov’t Review… WHAT!?

Posted by darthkeller on February 25, 2010

While checking out the interwebs today I noticed an article that struck my fancy:
Obama May Prohibit Home-Loan Foreclosures Without HAMP Review.

Please, allow me a moment to get this straight: Liberals wanted MORE regulation and oversight so that there would be no chance of discrimination when buyers went to secure a home loan. Discrimination would not be allowed based on race, sex, sexual orientation, religion, or ability to pay back the loan. Correct?

Since I like Bawney Fwank, I’ll use his quotes:

And here he is lying about what he said:

So, Liberals pushed us into Fannie/Freddie, which banks KNEW would be a bad idea, and in 2008 it all came crashing down when banks were not getting paid back on the loans they were FORCED to approve.

Now, Obama wants to ensure that if a bank starts foreclosure proceedings, they cannot foreclose on the house until the Home Affordable Modification Program has a chance to check everything out.

Are they expecting that the borrower simply chose not to pay even though they have the money and the threat of a government agency which sounds like an overused recreational drug is going to scare them into paying? No, they just want to screw with the system even more than they already have.

Let me break it down for you: When a bank lends someone $100,000 for a home, they have an appraiser look at the home to ensure that it’s worth the loan. Then they expect to be paid back, a little at a time, each month, by the “owner” of the home (the bank actually owns the property, hence the reason you’re paying them for it). If they stop receiving payment from you, they are out $100,000. So, they will foreclose on the house and put it on the auction block. Why? Because selling a $100,000 for $50,000 is better than getting $0 for it.

This is just another ploy by the Obama administration to do two things:
1) Strengthen ACORN and ACORN-esque groups. They are able to break into homes that are owned by the bank, which gives them credibility to help the “little man” out. Actually, they are using the “little man” to push their power-hungry agenda
2) Keep the banks under their foot. Remember, this is the administration that forced banks to take TARP money, then wouldn’t allow them to pay the money back without a strings attached. Why? CONTROL

So, there you have the Liberal mindset: Create an agency, then a program for that agency. Screw up everything by stupid rules and regulations. Pretend to ride in and save the day. Once the day is “saved”, refuse to leave and ride off into the sunset, instead, stick around and enslave the people!

I bet it does better than most of the crap that comes out of Hollywood these days.

ACORN in violation of RICO Act?

Posted by darthkeller on September 15, 2009

Ok, so in case you’ve been under a rock for the past week, you think I’m talking about voter fraud… I’m not – And you should visit BigGovernment.com before you continue.

From Wikipedia

Under RICO, a person who is a member of an enterprise that has committed any two of 35 crimes—27 federal crimes and 8 state crimes—within a 10-year period can be charged with racketeering. Those found guilty of racketeering can be fined up to $250,000 and/or sentenced to 20 years in prison per racketeering count. In addition, the racketeer must forfeit all ill-gotten gains and interest in any business gained through a pattern of “racketeering activity.” RICO also permits a private individual harmed by the actions of such an enterprise to file a civil suit; if successful, the individual can collect treble damages.

So, what are those crimes one must commit in order to qualify for RICO? Here’s a list:

  • Any violation of state statutes against gambling, murder, kidnapping, extortion, arson, robbery, bribery, dealing in obscene matter, or dealing in a controlled substance or listed chemical (as defined in the Controlled Substances Act);
  • Any act of bribery, counterfeiting, theft, embezzlement, fraud, dealing in obscene matter, obstruction of justice, slavery, racketeering, gambling, money laundering, commission of murder-for-hire, and several other offenses covered under the Federal criminal code (Title 18);
  • Embezzlement of union funds;
  • Bankruptcy or securities fraud;
  • Drug trafficking;
  • Money laundering and related offenses;
  • Bringing in, aiding or assisting aliens in illegally entering the country (if the action was for financial gain);
  • Acts of terrorism.

Any of those look familiar?  Let’s take the three videos from BigGovernment:

Extortion – ACORN said they would help, but that the “pimp” and the “prostitute” would have to join ACORN.  Sounds like extortion to me.

Dealing in Obscene Matter – THEY ARE SETTING UP A BROTHEL!  HELLO!

Fraud – I would say ACORN’s help in defrauding the IRS in tax money would count….

Slavery – I could be wrong, but I could swear that the “prostitute” said the girls would give her all the money, which means they are working for nothing, the very definition of slavery

Money Laundering – This is the practice of gaining money illegally and then disguising it to look legit… Like gifts from family, or gifts to family, pretty sure I heard that to
Bringing in… aliens – That’s somewhat the crutch of these videos, brining in 13 underage El Salvadorian girls to work in this brothel, so this is a definite “check”

What’s the count there?  Six… Not bad, since only two of them are necessary for RICO.  Now, the question is this: Will the MSM find the same evidence that my 2 minutes of research on Google/Wikipedia turn up, or will they continue to overlook the obvious?

If history is any teacher, it will be up to us, those of “the mob” to continue to press this story until ACORN is gone.  Of course, I could be wrong, and if I am, please let me know.  I’d love to learn more about this.

NOTE: I would like to go on record and thank Hannah Giles and James O’Keefe! These are two brave, CRAZY, kids!  They deserve the respect and admiration of all those that love America!
