Obama Plans to Forgive Mortgages?

Thursday, January 5, 2012

obama pizza

From today’s Rush Limbaugh show:

I have been waiting to see if this gets reported.  It has not been reported.  It’s not gone beyond where I first saw it.  Well, I take it back.  It has appeared in one other place.  Our old buddy James Pethokoukis, who writes at Reuters and some other places, has discovered that one of the objectives Obama has with all these recess appointments is to — brace yourself here — essentially, when you strip it all away, if this happens, what Obama is planning on doing is essentially forgiving all mortgages.

There are some requirements.  You have to be paying on your mortgage, you have to be three months current, but Obama is going to just wave a magic wand and allow people to refinance their mortgages, essentially cutting hundreds of dollars off of the monthly payment.  This will cost $1.2 trillion and, as always, it is those of you who don’t have a mortgage or who will not qualify for this plan who will be paying for it.  This is buying an election in one fell swoop.  (interruption) What?  What quote from yesterday?  Oh.  Well, everybody’s saying, even Rove is out there saying it’s not a smart move to spend 20 minutes on stage with McCain if you are Romney having McCain endorse you.  It’s really not a smart move.  That 20 minutes on Hannity last night. I don’t know who they think are, I just don’t know.  I don’t know how they think they’re helping themselves. But don’t get sidetracked here.

Folks, it may not matter who the nominee is.  It may not matter about the primaries.  It may not matter about any polling data.  We have a president who’s cutting the defense budget now.  His priorities are winning the future, paying off his wacko donors and weakening national security in the process, proudly saying that it’s about time we pared down to the point where we can only fight one ground war at a time.  The idea that we should be able to fight two ground wars at a time is excessive and unnecessary, so we’re cutting the defense budget.  All of this is predictable, by the way.  There is a plan afoot by virtue of these recess appointments, it’s a little bit more complicated, but the bottom line is, in terms of perception, the perception is going to be on the part of people that Obama is forgiving their mortgages.

The perception and the way it’s gonna be reported — this is not really what’s gonna happen — but the way it’s gonna be reported and the way people are gonna be made to feel is that Obama is fixing their mortgage.  He’s fixing the fact that their house is underwater.  He is going to lower their monthly payment, the banks, the rich guys are gonna take the hit on it, millionaires and so forth. Your house is going to have value again.  In one fell swoop with an executive order, we’re gonna fix the housing problem.  We’re gonna bring value back to everybody’s number one asset.  Now, if that happens, and if it’s reported that way, then all the rest of this is irrelevant.  You go out and basically, as president, make it possible for people’s mortgages to be paid much cheaper, the value of their home restored just with a wave of your magic wand, who’s going to vote against that, who is going to vote against the guy that makes that happen?  That’s the plan.

Now, it’s not guaranteed that it’s going to happen.  If it does, the monthly mortgage payment of people affected would fall by an average of $355 a month for Obama’s constituents.  That is not insignificant.  For a lot of people, that’s close to the payment we’re talking about here.  For a lot of people it’s half the payment.  It’s not insignificant.  You reduce people’s monthly payment by 400 bucks, just by waving the magic wand, and there’s one guy who did it.  Obama.  I want to take you back to some of the early town halls after the guy was elected over in Tampa, there’s this woman saying, “Where’s my new kitchen?  Where’s my new car?”  Well, here it comes.  Election year 2012.  But instead of a new kitchen and a new car, hey, guess what?  Here’s your mortgage, refinanced, totally affordable as it should have been in the first place. The banks were ripping you off. The banks were overcharging you, but I am making your mortgage affordable and the value of your home is now worth something.

And who’s gonna stop it? Who? Nobody! (interruption) Of course, they’re gonna have to. What do you mean, “The banks are gonna grab the ankles on this”? The banks have been grabbing the ankles ever since the Community Redevelopment Act! The military is grabbing the ankles on cutting themselves. McCain’s grabbing the ankles. (impression) “We don’t call anybody ‘liars’ in politics! It’s not how we do it, unless you have incontrovertible proof,” and we don’t really want to say the country’s “screwed.” That’s just not presidential. So while we’re sitting here worried about semantics and “sounding presidential,” we’ve got a guy who is living and behaving outside the Constitution! We have a lawless regime, here.

It’s the same thing with the jobless numbers. I warned you. I warned you back in December, “Get ready,” and, lo and behold, all it’s taken is one month for it to come true. The new jobless numbers are out and, “Look! Ho, gee! Are we in Fat City? Why, everybody is going back to work. The economy, it’s rebounded!” So it’s a lot to deal with here, and I’ll put all this in a semblance of order and give you the details of this. The mortgage thing is not guaranteed to happen. I don’t want to say it’s a fait accompli. I just want to tell you it’s what’s planned. This would be the mother of all stimulus bills. They’re calling this the Home Assistance Refinancing Program 2.0.

The Home Assistance Refinancing Program, HARP (HARP 1.0) failed! It didn’t work. They’re going back and they’re gonna do it again. They’re calling it HARP 2.0. So we have a president who has gone rogue. Even yesterday in Ohio to set this up, Obama at his town hall meeting repeated his lie that the banks tricked people into getting bad mortgages. The banks tricked people, lured them in, and that’s not at all what happened. The government is responsible for the subprime mortgage crisis as you well know because you’re a devoted and regular listener to the program. But this is all set up yesterday with Obama in Ohio.

    I believe the RomanEmperor Hadrian did somewhat of the same thing, only to help bankrupt the empire more.

      It would be fine if the money came out of his pocket but no, it is coming out of our pockets. He is so ever so generous with our money, make all of those mortgage payers love him “the “KING OF KINDNESS.” More votes, for him!!! He will soon have enough racked up, he hopes, to make him the president again… we need to get him out this week not in November or January 1, 2013. I am just so afraid we can’t last that long as a free nation.

    • Wayne

      Hopefully there are more responsible people than irresponsible people that will be voting. He is doing this in order to help his election. Let’s vote this Communist right out of the White House this November. There is not anyway that folks who are responsible should have to pay for those who have not been responsible. I’m sick and tired of carrying the weight of those who are not responsible and this so called president is not responsible either.

      On their cell phones, Ipods, video games, watching reality TV. Most of them don’t know or care an election is coming in November, don’t know or care who the Republican nominees are.

    • lh

      That’s what community organizers do best use other peoples money. If they had to really work for a living maybe they wouldn’t be so eager to use other peoples money. As Margaret Thatcher said Socialism is great until you run out of other peoples money. I would say this president is using executive order which to me is the greatest form of Socialism. Executive Order needs to be stopped forever. The only way Executive Order should even be used is if there is a check and balance put in place. That would possibly be when a president plans on using it there should be at least 2 democrats 2 republicans from the senate 2 democrats 2 republicans from congress, all names drawn and voted on. If it comes out that 6 votes against the presidents executive order that stands…… Some thing has to be done about Executive Orders ……. Our country is not a Socialist country and this president is using executive order to run our country like a Socialist country and it has to be stopped……

    • http://www.MicahPeak.org Jeff Brodhead (self-reported anti-Obamacare protestor, on flag @whitehouse.gov)

      Obama is already out… because s/he/it (you tell me) was never legally “in”.

      We the People need to apply so much pressure, our “representatives” fear US far more than they fear their “party”, or O’Dingo!

      Gee, just heard that the whiteOUThouse is proposing PAY RAISES FOR FEDERAL (FERAL) EMPLOYEES! WHAT THE STINKIN’ HECK!?!?!

    • outspoken

      Hey, he is only thinking ahead…..by lowering your mortgage he will then stop the deductions taking on taxes and increase taxes…..we will end up paying more to the government then the cut in mortgages to the banks. It’s called ending free market system and making everyone owe the government!

    • lh

      I really do hate to inform you, but he is going to tax us any way. This is only one more gimmick to get re-elected and it will probably work. People that want some thing for nothing will always fall for the all mighty gimmick. There is nothing free in life, someone else will always pay for that so called free stuff. It is usually you and me.

  • http://www.patriotactionnetwork.net Shane

    Yes, Obama thinks of himself as an enlightened monarch who will forgive the debts of his subjects who worship him so. Comrade Obambi will do whatever is necessary to win a second term, even if it means bribing voters and bankrupting the federal government.

    • pattz15

      I’m not sure we’ll even make it to the elections. Maybe the plan is to promise this, to get people to think he’s for them, but before it happens (Bush’s fault again?) we’ll get into WWIII or something that will “prevent it” but with his new popularity, it won’t matter that he is FINALLY PROVEN to be a fraud. Then with WWIII going on, sheeple will gladly throw out the constitution. Then with that power in his back pocket, he’ll be able to get the lemmings to acquiesce to his New World Order.

      You are right, they are already saying that he is up to something and that everyone will fallow him down that little bread crumb path just like Hansel and Gretal.

    An elderly man suffered a massive heart attack. The family drove
    wildly to get him to the emergency room. After what seemed like a
    very long wait, the ER doctor appeared wearing his scrubs and a
    long face. Sadly, he said, “I’m afraid Grandpa is brain-dead, but
    his heart is still beating.”

    “Oh, Dear God,” cried his wife, her hands clasped against her
    cheeks with shock.

    “We’ve never had a Democrat in the family before!”

      Wonder why he doesn’t go ahead and forgive all the mortgages to those who unwisely got theirselves in this position? We are already giving free housing to most of the others, so why not asswign the houses to low or no income people. Soon they will be like the rest of the free housing, ruined and ready to be torn down. Then bulldoze, and let someone build that can afford to pay a mortgage. Won’t take long!

    Well, After working for 47 years I was hoping I could get my mortgage paid off and enjoy life taking it easy, I know I am not on the list to have mine paid off by the obama syndicate, but when he pays off the mortgages of his constituency I will have to work for the next 47 years. oh…bummer

    By forgiving the mortgages it doesn’t help the economy, it just puts us a lot more into debt. I rather see these homes rented out at a fair market value, and maintained until the market turns around.

  • Old Veteran

    I find it very hard to see Obummer “getting” votes for this. There are many more who don’t need this help and THEY will be upset to know THEIR TAX DOLLARS will get Obummer votes. How many of the “forgiven” would like to have a job? How many “curse” fannie Mae and Freddie Mac for causing this housing mess? This “ploy” is a class divider and those who pay taxes and keep up with their home payments will be upset. But then I believe Obummer does not care.

  • mij greb

    The election should actually be discussed in terms of we, the voters, are actually the bank giving out the loans to the elected officials by our votes. If we elect them we give them the power to draw down the credit we give them.

    So, as we approach each candidate for re-election, we should consider their past loan performance. Did they use these loans without budgets for years, without regard to the ability to repay, without regard to the constitutionality of the purchases)?

    As bankers considering applications from these candidates, we should consider that our elected officials (every one of them from any party) are asking us to loan them more money by voting for them.

    We must make our loan application final decisions based on the applicant’s qualification for the loan (vote). The result under sound underwriting principles would be they all get fired (except a very few led by Paul Ryan).

  • Carolyn Elliott

    Obama is unbelievable. He will go to any lengths to win the election. He should have had his true birth checked a long time ago. We all need to rise up if he does this and not let him do this with out a lot and I mean alot of loud protest about it. We cannot idly stand by and say nothing and let all the ignorant people buy into this.

    • Lane

      If by chance, Mr. Obama wins in November, (and I am afraid he will, no conservative Republicans with gumption) we as one people are going to have to march on Washington by the many MILLIONS. This will mean taking off from work and making great sacrifice, and stay until things CHANGE!

    Obama thrives on tactics and ploys. Remember the help he gave us with the small business loans, not to many people were eligible, he takes away from the military and forgives mortgages, that does’nt make sense. Cant we put him on a slow boat to China,lets make sure the drywall in the boat was made in China, he can visit his step-brother in china. Maybe he should return all the light bulbs to china, bring ours back. They certainly are pricey. The all american company Kodak, is probably going bankrupt because of these light bulbs. What about Target, they are sending money back to France? Macy’s, here in Ohio is closing a few stores. We are making jobs, I dont think so, jobs are being lost. Obama us americans are not dumb, go home, where ever that is.

  • Sandy Skrehot

    I don’t understand why the debt needs to be forgiven. I have a solution. Modify the original note. If someone can’t afford their current payments. Calculate the existing balance, lower the payment to a number the owner can afford, but don’t forgive the debt, lengthen the term of the loan to cover the remaining debt. Then, no one is getting anything. The owner is just being given the opportunity to keep their home by reducing their payment and increasing the time it takes to pay off the current balance.

    • JG

      Which is exactly what this plan is proposing to do.

    • Walter D. Shutter, Jr.

      Don’t look now, Sandy, but i believe that is the plan, except that instead of increasing the mortgage period-say from 30 years to 60 years-all of the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac mortgages will have their interest rates reduced to 4%. This could result in an average reduction of these monthly mortgage payments by $400. Unfortunatly, these Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac mortgages are owned by the government, i.e., the taxpayers, and the interest income lost to the government will balloon the deficit by billions of dollars.

    This illegal alien marxist has been out to bankrupt the country ever since taking office. He will get re-elected just by giving away the company store.

    Can no one see that after the election of Obama, the government began its blitz on this country to take it down right away?

    It doesn’t matter because they are going to do what they are going to do no matter what any of us think and the election will be rigged and the country and constitution will be officially gone without a shot fired.

    Kruschev was right. This country was destroyed from within. And for what?

    • Ann C

      But please remember that we-the-people of the USA have the best form of government on earth, and all we need do is be cautious, watchful, prayerful, and every one of us get up out of our chairs Nov.2012, and VOTE that tyrant out of office.
      The American spirit cannot be crushed by this Muslim, anti-American, illegal-for-office tyrant.
      Never, ever will we be crushed by him! STAY STRONG, FOLKS! Struggles ahead, but keep contacting your members of Congress. Write letters to the editor of your local papers. Inform, as best you can, the facts we learn from these marvelous conservative news sources. We have work to do, and we need to get cracking on it straightaway!!
      God bless America. God bless each and every one of you for your love of our country and all it did, does and will stand for.

    Refinancing is not eliminating or forgiving a debt, it is just extending it out longer.

    That’s what Obama’s programs do, just refinance for a longer term, so in the long run you pay lots more. Short term payments may drop a little.

    The big reason his making homes affordable plan is failing, is because there is not enough gainful employment left in this country, therefore it doesn’t matter if people’s mortgage payment was $1 a month, with no job….no $1 to pay with.

    Nope, he’s not helping most blacks, either. Only his corrupt henchmen and money launderers. Look at the story about the middle school in his home town that he promised to help get running water and electricity in Kogelo, Kenya. He didn’t keep his promise to them either so they outed his lies.

  • Al Barrs

    Barack Obama, II is clearly a communist revolutionary in the shadow of Alensky and William Ayers. His objective is the same as progressive Abraham Lincoln’s was, destroy the economy of a nation by raising tariffs on one region to fund another region’s effort to build an American Industrial Revolution and when their plan goes haywire rush in to “preserve the Union” with military force.

    No one knows anything about Barack Obama,II and I predict he will be outed AFTER he destroys the economy and leaves the Whitehouse and will be tried for treason and a laundry list of constitutional and Bill of Rights violations.

  • Richard Popovich

    We currently own a home that was hit hard when the housing market crashed, and we now we are upside down in the mortgage, and we have been paying on it for twelve years with no late payments. It is becoming a burden due to the fact that not only the property took a severe hit as far as its value, but between inflation and the fact that my wife’s salary has been cut about 15%, it makes our situation even worse.

    But there is no reason why Obama has to dream-up some new socialist scheme that will cause even more instability, inflation, and creation of some new government agency that will just make our economic situation worse. and

    Sure,… I would like to be paying 4% on a loan instead of the current 7.4% that we are paying now, but that is between the owner and the lender, not between the lender and Obama acting as a mediator between the bank and us. We are the ones that signed the mortgage papers, and we are responsible for honoring that commitment.

    What has to happen to straighten this mess out is to reduce the size of government, reduce spending, and have Congress take back their constitutional responsibility of managing our money supply. That is what is needed to straighten out our problems and restore our economic solvency and strength.

    This Keynesian theory of spending ourselves rich has been a proven failure since 1912 when Woodrow Wilson started the Federal Reserve Bank, and progressive politics. If it hasn’t worked over the past hundred years, it makes sense that it will never work in the future. Yet we continue doing it, making the same mistakes over and over. That is the height of either insanity, or treason, and since the powers that be know better… you fill in the blanks!

    • lonetrader

      Penny. If he were impeached, The Senate would not approve it. You need a 2/3 majority to do that. So why waste your time if it will never happen. Now, he could be ARRESTED by Congress. Problem is, they are all the same club. Romney, McCain,Gingrich, Santorum, etc are all bought and paid for by the World Banks and the Federal Reserve Board. Ron Paul is the only Constitutional man running. What I don’t understand is how so many Republicans have voted for Romney. Look at his voting record. He is a left wing Rino.

    • givedemsadirtnap

      I would have voted for Ron Paul until I found out he is anti-Israeli and in a huge way!! There are more things to consider in a president than just about the money thing.If America re-elects Obama regardless who the other guy, we can all agree that we sank our own ship!

      Why yes, you are correct! It appears that the GOP candidates are creating all this confusion, fighting, slinging mud.. a lot more than ever before..

Do you think perhaps this is all one great big set up by the powers that be to make sure there is enough chaos & confusion that the people can’t see?

    • Rick

      No, the house impeaches, ot is then the duty of the senate to convict. If the Senate convicts him of gigh crimes or treason, then he will be removed from office. Bill Clinton was impeached, but stayed in office.

      @Michael. Your Representative don’t give a damn what you think!! Put pen and paper to this: Just how much of a hole would it put in Saudi Arabia’s budget if they could donate $535 Billion dollars to Obama’s campaign? That much wouldn’t make a dent in Saudi’s budget. We have 535 Representatives and Senators–right? Just how many of those 535 Representatives and Senators could be bought for a billion dollars or less? Now do you understand why Saudi doesn’t need to maintain a viable military force? Ask yourself why Obama and Congress and the Senate so willingly placed the Head of the National Guard on the Joint Chiefs of Staff the other day–the first step in stealing the National Guard (State Militia) from the 50 Governors. Surely, every congressman up there is smart enough to realize this–but they did it! Some previous comment asked the question “What does Obummmer have on our Congressmen to make them go along with his step-by-step, deliberate destruction of our Nation? Well, there’s your answer: Saudi Arabia can BUY anybody they want! They can buy all the campaign advertisement they want. They can have the liberal lamestream media print ANYTHING they want. And the lazy, apathetic voters of this country suck it up hook, line and sinker. I’ll see you and them in HELL ’cause I ain’t going down quietly.

    • Jill

      It is simple because the American people have no backbone. This is our country and we are letting the banks run this lovely country of ours. The government is supposed to work for us not the other way around. We don’t have the intestinal fortitude to stand up for our rights as humans to decide what we want to do for ourselves. Too many want a mommy government to tell them what to do and therefore we have what we have and we allow people like the banks to control everything. It doesn’t matter if it is a democrat or republican, black or white, muslim or christian, jew or atheist. That is not the issue here. The issue is we the American people have allowed the Federal Reserve Bank (which is privately owned) run this country. It is time to take it back. My opinion as far as presidents is Ron Paul as he reminds me of JFK. JFK might not have started off on the right foot but when he started learning what was going on and telling everyone what was going on they managed to dispose of him as they didn’t want their plan ruined. Think about it, if you don’t believe me look it up. Look up his speech prior to his murder.

      Ummm, 750 billion dollars divided by 75 million mortgages gives each mortgage holder $10,000. NOT hundreds of thousands of dollars. Is your pencil and paper broken so it doesn’t do correct math?
      Make it easy on yourself, cross the same amount of zeros off each number and then divide it. 750 billion has 9 zeros after it and 75 million has 6 zeros after it. 750,000,000,000 and 75,000,000. Crossing the 6 zeros off each one makes it easier to work with:
      750,000 and 75. Now cross off the 75 in each one and you get:
      10,000 and 1.

      Wow, each mortgage holder would only get $10,000 one time. NOT hundreds of thousands of dollars to pay off their mortgage and then thousands of dollars every month.

      Learn how to do basic math. The numbers might surprise you.

    • Johnnygard

      Hk lover (me too by the way), don’t be too hard on him. I doubt there are 75 million mortgages out there. That would be about one out of four man, woman and child in the U.S. with a mortgage. If it was 7.5 million, that would be $100,000 for each mortgage. Because many would owe less than that, and many would owe more, the $750 bil might come close. The amount the homebuyers are now paying for the house would give them (maybe) $1,000 or more a month to spend on other things. I’M NOT BACKING THE IDEA, just sayin’.

    • Rich

      I wish to the heavens above it was ONLY 750 billion! Looks more like 13 Trillion to bail out the banks! Next I guess we’ll have to bail out Europe (again). Starting to look that way- Buy pure silver coins-that way you’ll have something in your hand when you hit the grocery store= cause the monopoly money that will be printed won’t be worth a damn! (or a “continental”) for that matter. Thanks.

    I’m no O’bama fan by a long shot. But dismissing mortgages will not make a hill of beans to the real economy. All lending is fraud, the moment you sign your promissory note for a mortgage it is paid…peroid. the fraud comes in that you pay for it again over the course of the mortgage term. Your paying twice. If you doubt me read “The Creature from Jeckyll Island”. It explains it all.

    It’s even worse…When the banks fail as a result, the Grand Opuba will insist we can’t afford to bail out those rich capitalists again, and that banking should be a state-run enterprise.

What are the specialities of these appointees?

      It takes a rich capitolist, to build a nice shoe shop with solor heat water falls electricity and /or wind and solor, to have th shoe factory for people to work in to sell the shoes, and export them out. America have very little export. It called free enterprise. And spelled wages.

  • the ohioan

    everyone i read on all these blogs seem to have the same idea……to vote obumer out …..this will not do the most good…if he is voted out ALL the bills and things he signed into being WILL stay in effect and be difficult to remove through the courts…..BUT….if he were to be impeached….ALL he signed would vanish….poof…so impeach him now and do not wait for him to sign the “no more elections” bill and that would mean he would be president for life….think about it !!!!

    • Bill

      True, but no one really raises enough hell with the Congress to get anything done about it. They are all scared to death and want to preserve their jobs. If enough pressure is applied to Congress, the maniacal Orders he issues can be sopped.

    • Clayton Wellman

      The ohioan is so right. Impeach now or better yet ,try him for treason.

    • CelticGyrl

      Even IF the House of Reps passed Impeachment against Obama, it will NEVER be tried and carried out in the Senate since Harry Reid and the Democrats control that house. The only way to impeach him is to re-elect him while at the same time electing a super majority of Republicans in the Senate. It’s better to vote him out, vote the Republicans unchallenged control of BOTH houses of Congress and make them repeal all the regulations, laws, etc… enacted under Obama and his czars. Also, need legislation barring the creation of anymore czar positions in future administrations-it’s unchecked power in the hands of a single individual doing the direct wishes of only the President, not the People.

    • Johnnygard

      DREAM BIG! The IDEAL thing would be to vote in a conservative House, Senate and President. Then, because the new Senators get sworn in a couple of weeks before Obummers leaves office, the House has articles of impeachment drawn up in advance. The day the Republicans take control of the Senate, the House turns the impeachment over to them. Then they try the case and convict him and remove him before inauguration day. Biden might be President for a day or two, but he won’t do any more damage with a Republican Congress.

  • pinky Lee

    This administration plans everything in steps. this item will only progress if the congress allows additional borrowing. When the banking community looses all the mortgages, Obama will subsidize the big banks for their looses and let the small banks flounder. In other words we will be paying off other peoples mortgage. Sounds familiar doesn’t it. This way he will be buying all of those votes without costing him anything.

  • JVB

    I’ve said it before….Obama is EXPECTING to get another term and he’s literally going for broke now. He isn’t wasting time with Constitutionality or waiting for everyone to agree with him….he’s going to spend his way into the history books.

    The fool Democrats will believe this is a true Godsend.

(Bro, by the way, is almost a millionaire because of what his deceased wife left him from her several inheritances.) As if Obama is some sort or soft-hearted soul. Ha! He’s buying votes any way he can. I don’t doubt that this plot will fail but it will blind his sheeple even more to his uncountable faults. Those type can’t think for themselves if they see something offered that’s free. What a total disgusting bunch! We have to get him out of office and permanently out of this country. We don’t need dictatorship here.

    he has been “investing” our tax money in the brazilian stock market [BM & FBOVESPA]..as is the manufacturer he “awarded” to build our air force planes [“awarded” meant lightly as the bid was not made public]…the company policies and employee training tactics are pretty fishy.

    in reading some of the background on member companies of BM & FBOVESPA, many of them were created in 2008 – mostly after april and thru october – and are chicago/soros affiliated. the conditions for some of the deals suggest absolute resource supply, food supply, energy supply… it gives me a sense of him selling out our mortgages to possible BM & FBOVESPA affiliated banks, meaning selling your mortgage to a new gov-affiliated bank will have consequences…possibly severe.

    i don’t know, but there seems to be an awful lot of money leaving here and ending up in brazil…all on the cusp of the intentional and impending fall of the us dollar & fed reserve…the us dollar is NOT a participating currency in theBM & FBOVESPA…

    I am a professional truck driver along with my spouse. In Nov., I was put out of service for medical tests for sleep apnea without warning. We weren’t prepared financially to lose 75% of our monthly income~my ck paid our bills while my husband’s paid road/truck expenses,ins. premiums, etc.

    We had just purchased a new mobile home in April 2011 and had an existing automobile loan. My auto loan co. gratefully extended my loan after one phone call and added the months to the back end of the loan. My mortgage co. threatened to foreclose within 10 days of the 1st non-pmt. They wouldn’t even consider an extension and were very ugly on the phone. We have managed to make the pmts.while letting others slide but it’s hard. That’s our responsibility. I could have just told them to take the dang thing but that’s not how I was raised. I just wanted some time, not to never pay what I rightfully owe.

    It infuriates me when people get on tv and talk about “free this and free that” for everyone just because they’re breathing. I’ve never gotten anything for free, but I pay for alot of other peoples “free” crap!

      I don’t know where Rush gets the $1.2 trillion figure but I suspect it is wrong.

      Allowing people to refinance so prevent more foreclosures is an excellent step toward improving our economy. Truly no one loses. The banks will end up with fewer foreclosed homes on their books. The housing market will not continue to decline because of foreclosures.

      There may be some risk that some will still default on their homes but the benefits far outweigh that risk.

    • dave smith

      Refinancing mortgages that people could not pay is what got us in this mess to begin with. Refinancing is not what the President is wanting to do. He just wants the same people who get everything free or reduced to get more freebies and reductions. Who pays for the reductions and freebies? The same people who always do. Those of us who actually work and try to save a little bit of money for retirement. Remembering 2009, he wants our retirement money too for that matter.

    • cp

      Have any of you read the requirements? It only works if you have been paying your mortgage and haven’t refinanced in the HARP program subsequent to June 2009. If you aren’t paying, you aren’t eligible. It’s purpose is to allow those paying their mortgages in the depreciating market who have lost equity because of the lack of regulations over the institutions that pushed the “BAD” loans to get a more equitable interest rate than they now have. READ THE DETAILS of the program! Nothing’s being given away.

    • Jek Silberstein

      I don’t have a Commercial semi-truck lisc, but if you want to train me, I’d drive for several months, maybe more. WHY would that help? Because I can’t charge YOU any money for driving, because if I make any, I lose it, dollar for dollar, from my VA award, so it would be as if your Hubby was still driving(–if we’re out-of-town driving, have him ride along). Money I earned would be yours. I had sleep-apnea, but don’t anymore. I lost weight, got my dog to wake me (she does, if too long before a breath) started riding a bicycle (“ride” indoors in the winter, they’ve got “trainers”), don’t eat anything that makes mucus before going to bed, before its been a while, and don’t use C-pap, use over-the-counter appliances. Or train a parolee (-non-violent offender) to do the same (drive) for experience, room & board. He could have to call his parole officer every few hours, so you should be totally safe. If staying on C-pap, you should be considered “disabled”, and THAT would qualify Hubby for training in something else. How about local delivery? 9-5, daylight jobs with a small truck/van? G-d Bless

      I’m with you, girl, and was raised the same way. As were MY children.
      Until we find a way to have the (estimated) 45% of the people who pay NO taxes- and most all of who GET money from the Government- we will ALWAYS be on the short end.
      Time to clean house in DC. And to KEEP it clean. First order of business should be a national RECALL law that permits ANY publicly elected official to be recalled from office by vote of the people. Can and SHOULD be done. Example: 70% of the people did NOT want Obamacare- but Congress and the President ignored us. We should have been allowed to get them ALL out of office right then!

I have worked numerous jobs, some only paying minimum wage, but I have never cried about what I should be getting for FREE! It is an outrage as to what this administration is doing to OUR country!! All our men & women who have given their service to our country & the hard working folks are being systematically DESTROYED!! We all need to fight back!!

    • daves

      Wouldn’t it be nice to refinance and bring your monthly payments down?

    • Patrick

      Dave, part of what you are missing is that there is a “cost” to bring those payments down. Who is going to pay that cost? Tax payers, the banks? Realize this, no corporation will take a loss because of higher taxes, lawsuits, production costs, fines, or any other reason. this cost is passed on to the consumers in price hikes.

      I am all for assisting those that need it, as has been mentioned in this thread. However, there are thousands that CAN afford their payments that would take advantage just because they do not want to be upside. these are the unintended consequences of the Government “helping”. Many banks would rather foreclose than work with you because they were promised a bigger pay day by the government. Again, unintended consequences. If you let capitalism work without government interference, the banks will fix the problem and work with those that NEED it.

    • daves

      I refinanced both of my homes last year. The banks were eager to do it. The original banks were paid 100% of the balance due. The only thing they lost was possible future revenue.

      The banks will take a much bigger hit if people default on their loans. And that is a cost that will affect all us of Americans. Including in the unemployment lines.

    • am2sweet

      I sincerely hope things work out for you. It seems the banks are getting more and more disgusting in not working with anyone on anything. Too many people are losing homes for no good reason other than the banks would rather have empty places drawing no income then work with homeowners and have some income. That just doesn’t make sense.

    • dave smith

      Banks do not want empty homes. They want payment for the house you live in that they own. You do not own the house until the mortgage which you got from the bank is paid off. Please do not fall into the trap of the blame game when the responsibility lies squarely on the shoulders of the ones who took out the loan.
      If you owe me money, you will not think I am nice when I expect to be paid back as you promised and have failed to do so.

  • DrBillLemoine

    The problem–if Rush or anyone without an underwater mortgage would only check–is we are only ineligible to refinance because the ratios banks use to justify a refi don’t fit the standards. It’s only reducing the interest paid, not cancelling the principal due. It would reduce monthly payments if only the government would guarantee payments for the banks. Under this scenario, nobody would lose money except on paper. It would ease homeowner cash flow problems freeing money to spend and revive the economy. The value of property wouldn’t be changed as ‘announced’ by His Highness, shooting from the lip–unless he knows something nobody else does.

    • James D. Burke

      Dr. Bill, all the problems you indicate above can be laid squarely at the feet of one Mr. President Obama who included homeowners difficulties as just one arm of his “Fundamentally Changing” the “United States of America.” His messing with G.M; and now the Electric Grid is in his sights; the coal mining industries is also fundamental change. As Nikita Krueschev once remarked “what fools these Americans are, you spit in their face and they think it is dew.” We could say the same thing about our present congress who sits around croaking like a bunch of frogs in the morning twilight.

      cwgf, it won’t recover! The usurper just keeps on and on buying off the lower and middle class while congress sits on their lily pads croaking. While the lower and middle class had time to do something about the declining situation for the last forty years they were too enamored with sports, such as hunting, camping, going to watch non-productive games and completely ignoring what was going on in congress and no-one could get their attention. When the fundamental changer came along they flocked to him like lemmings diving over the cliffs and couldn’t wait to get to the deep blue sea. Now he is offering them another carrot and congress has not the ambition to get off their lily pads and surround the Change Pharaoh like Moses and Aaron did for a former one in Egypt. I suspect a rumble is in the making.

    • daves

      You think it is President Obamas fault that the banks do not want to refinance some peoples houses? Please explain that one to me.

    • Patrick

      Dave, just like every other president, Bama boy will get the credit or blame of whatever congress does. Look at Clinton’s credit for Newt’s balance budget back in the 90’s.

      However, some of the banks were guaranteed a percentage return of the original loan amount of defaulted loans (follow that?) if they absorbed the assets (loans) of banks that went under. Theses banks picked up these assets for 25 – 35 cents on the dollar. So if the government guarantees you 65% ($65,000) of a $100,000 loan that you paid 35% ($35,000) for, what is your motivation to work with that customer? The bank forecloses, sells the house for $40,000 and then get another $25,000 from the government. They just made a $30,000 profit. Now, it is not all banks that get this deal, however, you can bet it was not the smaller, “hometown” banks. This is why some banks are easier to work with than others.

    • daves

      What Government program offered the banks 65% of the outstanding debt?

    • Johnnygard

      daves, You’re good at research. Two or three different Realtors have told me the same thing over the last year, so look it up with your computer skills, and let us know what you find.

    • Dave

      Well banks/mortgage companies need profit to stay afloat,and the interest made by them on loans is the major income (don’t know the % but it is the majority portion by far). Since they already had their hand out before, reducing their income (interest income pays the banks overhead) guess who will pay when the banks fall short again, look in the mirror for a clue.

    • Homer

      Dave if you really want to know the truth about banking, read “The Creature from Jekyll Island”. It reads like a “who dunnit?” but is very informing. You will never feel sorry for banksters “losses”, which BTW is an oxymoran, again. Banksters NEVER lose. Only the American people, working classes, lose.

    • wayne

      Dr. Bill,
      You’re right about the value of property not being changed…. but your wrong that no one would lose money except on paper. The Banks would lose plenty (which they would pass on to their customers; and the American Taxpayer (specially those without mortgages and those not underwater) would take it in the shorts. The Banks (The Big Four) would need, and get, another massive gov’t bailout… and who do you think would pay for that?

    • Homer

      The losses in the housing market have already been paid. We paid them. There is a good new movie that you can watch at Redbox called “Margin Call”. It will put it all together for you how the housing market bubble got burst. BO is not giving the people anything with this lower house payment. The companies that own your mortgage can afford to lower your payments and rewrite your loans because they bought the paper at less than half and they are still making money. The losses have already been covered with the bailouts. You are paying for mortgage losses. Banks and financial institutions never lose. Take the deal and be proud the people of America have already paid for it. WATCH THE MOVIE….

    • wayne

      I would like to see that movie. Thanks for the tip. But the housing meltdown is not over. More people will walk away from their mortgages in 2012 than did in 2011 or in 2010… or in 2009… or in 2008. And were not talking sub-primes any more. The bailouts combined with Trillions printed by the Fed… and Hundreds of Billions funneled into the corrupt Fannie and Freddie, is what’s keeping this ponzi scheme afloat and more Trillions will be needed. The American Taxpayer… all fifty million or so of them … will share the burden that’s still coming. Our Gov’t has deemed it so.

    • daves

      The losses the banks take will not even come close to the losses they take if we allow all of the underwater mortgages to be foreclosed.

    • dave smith

      The more foreclosures, the bigger the opportunity for real estate investors to buy and put you in a home you can actually afford. Many real estate investors are not megamillionnaires, but so what if they become rich. Let the houses foreclose. That will force people who lived beyond their means to have a reality check. It is a start over. Credit is only ruined for a few years while you re-establish yourself. The banks should not be bailed out not the people who stopped paying the mortgage.

    • daves

      That does nothing for people who lost their jobs from the poor economy. Many took lower paying jobs and would have no problem paying their mortgage at the current interest rates that are available.

    • HonestJohn

      Dr. Bill, (A Doctor ? You’re Kidding me !),
      What kind of economics is “you only lose money on paper”. Every time you lose money it’s usually on paper. It’s on paper when you lose money in the stock market. It’s on paper when your home loses value decreases. It’s on paper when you’re taxes increase. The problem DOCTOR (ha, ha) is all the BAD paper reduces your net worth and you’re checking account balance. IT”S REAL DOCTOR.

  • Von Starkermann

    Everyone is afraid of doing anything that is perceived to be against Obama. To do so means that you are a racist. Who wants to be called that name especially if you are a politician or a banker. The Obama administration has violated the constitution in so many ways, yet no one is strong enough to bring up the President for Impeachment. There is truly something wrong with the Republican Party these days as long as this madness goes on.

    • Hipockets

      CURE’ Don’t vote for ANYONE that is currently in office. Let’s try to get some honest AMERICANS in there that care about the Constitution and this country’

    • Robert

      There is no such thing as an honest politition, The whole government of this country needs to be revamped to allow all the people a say in what happens. With today’s technology there could be a way for every American to vote on every issue. We could eliminate the special interest groups from influencing the government.

    • Eyeswideopen

      I believe your statement needs to be modified to “There is no such thing as an honest CAREER politician”. Congress wasn’t meant to be a lifetime job. You spoke for your people then went back to work your own farm or other business. Pelosi may be the worst candidate ever, but her people will keep voting her in for what she gets for California, regardless how it affects the rest of the country.

    • Johnnygard

      We CANNOT remove Obama by impeachment. If the Republicans impeach in the House, it goes to Harry Reid and the Democrats in the Senate. Reid and the Democrats would never convict Obama in a trial. Remember Bill Clinton lied to a Grand Jury and it was proven, but the Senate still refused to convict. If they tried Obama, they would acquit him also, and then the media would all say the evil racist Republicans did it because they hate him for being black. The additional sympathy votes would assure his reelection in 2012. Impeachment would be a waste of time and a huge distraction from the real issues. Just talk to everyone about the economy, unemployment, inflation, gas prices, “Fast and furious”, Solyndra, Keystone Pipeline, etc., so we can defeat him in November.

    • ROSEBUD

      IF OBAMA SHOULD BE RE-ELECTED IN NOVEMBER, WE HAVE A PROBLEM, BUT IF THEY WIN THE SENATE, & MAINTAIN THE HOUSE, THEY WILL BE ABLE TO IMPEACH HIM. THIS COUNTRY CAN’T TAKE ANOTHER 4 YEARS OF OBAMA. JUST LOOK WHAT HE’S DOING ALREADY IN JUST JANUARY. HE SHOULD BE OPERATING AS THE LAME DUCK THAT HE TRULY IS. TODAY I HEARD THAT THE JUSTICE DEPT IS GOING AFTER BANK OF AMERICA FOR $30+ MIL & IT’S GOING TO ACORN (BY ANOTHER NAME). CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT THE DEMOCRATS W/BILL CLINTON AS PRES. CREATED THE HOUSING CRISIS WITH THE CRA, FORCED THE BANKS TO GIVE LOANS TO PEOPLE WHO COULDN’T AFFORD THEM & CAUSED THE BANKS TO COLLAPSE. THEY FORCED BANK OF AMERICA TO TAKEOVER THE CORRUPTED COUNTRYWIDE & NOW ARE MAKING BOA PAY FOR THEIR DEBTS. DOES THIS MAKE SENSE? JUSTICE DEPT IS NOW FORCING BANKS TO PAY SOMEONE ELSE’S DEBT THAT THEY FORCED THEM TO ASSUME. NOW YOU CAN UNDERSTAND WHERE THE MONEY TO REFINANCE ALL THOSE POOR PEOPLE’S MORTGAGES IS COMING FROM. OBAMA HAD HIS HAND OUT TO THE BIG BANKS & NOW THEY ARE GOING TO PAY TO GET HIM RE-ELECTED ALL OVER AGAIN, INDIRECTLY! THI IS LIKE BUYING A RESALE HOUSE & THE JUSTICE DEPT TELLS YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE PREVIOUS OWNERS DEBT. IT’S ALL ABOUT REDISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH. OBAMA EXTENDED THE BUSH TAX CUTS DURING A RECESSION KNOWING THE PEOPLE WOULDN’T GO FOR INCREASING TAXES ON THEM, ANOTHER POLITICAL MOVE. BUT HE ALWAYS COMES UP WITH ANOTHER METHOD OF ACCOMPLISHING THE SAME THING. EVERYTHING HE SAYS & DOES IS A POLITICAL MANUEVER.

    • minnie

      REMEMBER, ANYTIME A DEBT IS CANCELLED OR FORGIVEN, you are required to report that amount in your income tax return AS INCOME THEN YOU WILL PAY TAXES ON THAT. You would receive a 1099-C and I R S would also receive one FROM THE BANK OR WHOEVER YOU OWED THE MORTGAGE. Forgiven does not mean like free, look it up. Remember nothing is really free in this world, you always pay with your money or your freedom or other ways.

    • Char

      The forgiven debt doesn’t need to be reported if you fall within a certain bracket.

    • sperlow

      Minnie, It’s true you receive a 1099-C showing the debt was cancelled. However, at the same time you report that on your tax return, you file a form that says “at the time this debt was cancelled, I was insolvent” — That’s it — you just sign saying that was true. You don’t have to prove it or show anything else — just sign the form. So the big scare from the banks and mortgage companies that you will be taxed on the debt deficiency on your tax return is a bunch of bull. Oh, let me be surprised!

    • Homer

      The debt is NOT FORGIVEN. It is merely put back into the proper perspective of the fact that the people who bought your mortgage got it for a lot less than you owed at the time of default. The new mortgagor can opt to give you a break because he can afford to appear very generous. The loser that sold the paper to him has already been bailed out by the regime. (read You the taxpayer) BO has nothing to do with it. It is a big scam to re-distribute the wealth. And the wealthy are in on it. (read banksters)

    • JoJo

      If you think Obama is acting against the Constitution now, just wait when he’s voted office along with the democrat majority in the senate…it will make the 2010 lame duck session look tame. That is, IF we are allowed to vote in November.

    • Doris Fitch

      Your right, this is all about redistributing wealth, implementing UN sustainable development Agenda 21. He’s already received an award from the UN, Nobel peace prize. Every thing he is doing via the EPA can relate back to Agenda 21. The excuse is global warming. It effects the economy, social justice & environment. By the time it’s over we will be a communistic one world gov. I found out about it online, no media or politicians are talking about it. The politichicks have a video about it also web site “democrats against agenda 21″. This info needs to get out because both older Bush signed on & Clinton so we need to be aware before we elect a republican pres nominee!

    • cwgf

      If we don’t impeach O’Surper in the House, then we are no longer a nation ruled by law. We should do everything we can to impeach this enemy of America for his traitorous crimes, forget the political tit-tat. If the Senate chooses not to convict him, they will reap the reward of their folly. But at least we will be able to say we did our best, and be able to live with ourselves.

    • James D. Burke

      Jonnygrad, you have a good point. What my greatest disappointment is that congress has ceased to be the advance guard for the nation. They have tolerated presidents who have operated on the edge and failed to censure when they have usurped the power of congress thru Executive Orders. “Livid” is the only word which describes a huge segament of Americans by what is being allowed by the Executive Branch. “Deleterious” is the word which best fits what the Executive Office is bringing on America while congress croaks out another compromise.

      What money? he did not say he was giving you money, he said you would be forgiven for the loan that you owe. All it means is that bank will not go aFter you but will send you a 1099-C and also to the I R S. THAT AMOUNT OF MONEY YOU OWE YOU HAVE TO CLAIM IT AS YOUR INCOME, in yout Federal Income tax return. Since someone has to pay for it, the bank claims it as a loss in their RETURN, BUT YOU CLAIM IT AS INCOME. PRETEND THAT THE MONEY YOU OWED YOU STILL HAVE IT IN YOUR POCKET, because you kept it and did not give it to the bank. SO THE BANK WILL NOT LOSE, WHY SHOULD THEY? So the money you think you will get you already got it when you did not pay, you kept it. Look it up, look up 1009-C in the I R S web.

    • minnie

Free cell phones, free healthcare for immigrents and their children born here for up to five years, free unemployment checks for up to two years and so on. The working class is getting screwed and they know it. The idea is to get ride of the working class so that they can have those that are poor being controlled by th rich. They know exactly what they are doing.

    Can’t we already refinance now? Why do we need Obama to give us His Blessing and take the credit for something I already can do? He will take credit for do something we already can do ON OUR OWN.

    • Homer

      Absolutely Steveni. If you can get a mortgage go for it. I recommend OCWEN, they seem to be most reasonable and user friendly. Watch the movie: “Margin Call” before making attempts to get a new loan. It will give you insight on why they SHOULD give you a break. Chances are you may be with a company that got a bailout or who bought your paper for 60 cents on the dollar. Either way they can AFFORD to be helpful with you.

  • Nanette

    God forbid that Obama get re-elected but I believe he will. Number one, just before his election he will do something with Iran, after he has done nothing for 3years, the country will rally around him. Number 2 if he gets re-elected the term limit will go back to 3 terms, bet on it! He will do everything to get re-elected even make sure there are plenty of fake ballots. Number 3 with the electoral college the way it is, he can get 29% of the popular vote and still win…need to read up on how the electoral college works!

    • cwgf

      I think you may be right. Look at the averaged job approval ratings on RealClearPolitics.com. I was baffled that half the country supports the Usurper, until I realized it’s probably the same half that pays no taxes at all. With the Republicans cannibalizing one another, we will probably be served another 4 years of the Usurper. And you’re also right…we wants to be President for Life. He and Michelle love the perks of the job.

    • cwgf

      Also, the Usurper doesn’t need to get a majority of honest votes to win. He has all those cemetery residents he can count on to make up the difference, and they vote 3-4 times.

  • Don

    Let’s see, we need 1.2 trillion to reduce home payments so people don’t have to pay so much by taking money from other taxpayers. Now this drives up the deficit which now creates more debt on a national scale. Now government can’t pay the bill so we take another shot from Obama saying it’s Bush’s fault……
    What a bunch of crap. Obama needs to stop!!

  • tmt

    obama is using the same methods of taking control that Hitler did. Everything he does is for “the good of the country” yet it always requires more of our money and freedoms. Allowing obama to go around congress and act like a dictator is a recipe for disaster. Obama is appointing his own people just as Hitler did. When the big takeover comes it will be like Chrystalnacht when Hitler sent his nazis to get rid of the state army once and for all. I wish people would study the history of HOW Hitler was able to take power over Germany. He built a web of lies and deceit just as obama is doing now. what I cannot understand is why congress is not doing anything about it.

    • Von Starkermann

      Kristalnacht had nothing to do with Hitler’s elimination of the Wehrmacht(German Army) Crystal Night meant the burning and destroying of the Nation’s (Germany) Synagogues. I doubt that Obama will destroy the USA’s Synagogues in that 78% of eligible Jewish voters voted for this obvious Anti Semite.

  • Von Starkermann

    Lots of talk on this site, but little action. Lots of angst, but no one is willing to recall their congressmen and woman who refuse to follow the Constitution and obey the laws of the USA. Republicans and Democrats all belong to the same tired “old boys club” Both Parties are one of the same and it makes no difference whether Obama gets elected or not. The same baloney will still be in charge of our daily lives. I say take the Governmental mortgage bailout. It’s either you and I or George Soros who gets the money. I would rather it be you and I.

  • pikemaster

    When anything is forgiven ,the IRS will put thier hand out to collect what has been forgiven. Try and deal with a lawyer over a loan that is behind or a creditcard etc. and if they make a settlement for a lesser amount,the IRS Will come in and hit you for the differents in which has been agreeded to cut off the total amount due.The IRS would be on the homeowner for the anoumt knocked off the mortgage amount and you would save “NOTHING” ! There’s always a catch when you deal with the Gov. Be Careful if it sounds too good to be true ,it IS ! God Bless

    He can’t buy my vote. We pay almost $800.00 a month on this house. It was built in 1946. Needs so much work. But had to take out a SBA loan two years ago. After Hurricane Ike,the roof needed replacing. Our FEMA didn’t begin to cover even 1/3 of the costs. My point-We would love to refinance. We are on Social Security and a fixed income. However this is just another way for Obama to buy votes. If you can’t cheat your way back in-buy it! That’s deplorable.

    • JoJo

      Sorry, but there is this thing called insurance that is supposed to cover people from tornadoes, hurricanes, floods etc. Many people CHOOSE to live in coastal areas, earthquake and flood zones and CHOOSE not to buy the proper insurance because they know the government and taxpayers will BAIL THEM OUT. I live in an area where sinkholes occur frequently. Guess what? I have insurance to cover it!! If I didn’t, I would be THANKFUL for the taxpayers picking up 1/3 of the tab.

  • Ali-G

    Well, imagine that, yet another lie….and the fact that anyone would believe that this man has a magic wand that can actually make this happen is brainwashed … just like the OWEBUMMER’s word “CHANGE.” Anyone who voted for this word is truly brainwahed, plus stupid & ignorant or believes media – biased media.

  • Merlin

    How can he forgive something that he does not own? If he held all these mortgages he could indeed forgive them. But he wants to force others to forgive them using other peoples money. The end result would be another downgrade of the economy. This would add to his ultimate goal of destroying the U.S. economy and the country. (Beware of Creeks bearing gifts.)

    This individual who has claimed the office of President, is not an American. As far as I am concerned, the last 3 years have been a black hole in American history. Nothing to do at all with his color. He’s not even black. The best thing we can do in 2012 is vote and vote for an American in all offices.

  • Dallas

    Using other peoples money, consider this: It is said that the Obama Campaign will spend a billion dollars. Is it really possible to raise a billion in campaign contributions? I personally don’t think so.
    Let’s look at some facts then. Obama, by executive order canceled 2 years of Social Security increases, said to have been 500 million. At the same time, Stimulus packages given to the unions, Auto, teacher’s, SEIU and etc.
    I think the possibility exists that they being huge supporters and contributors to his campaign, were given that money with the stipulation to make very “heavy contributions” to his 2012 re-election campaign. In other words, using ‘other people’s money. If not, then where did the 500 billion go?

  • cwgf

    Here are some quotes by Alexis de Tocqueville, as relevant today as they were 200 years ago when he said them…

    “There is in fact a manly and legitimate passion for equality that spurs all men to wish to be strong and esteemed. This passion tends to elevate the lesser to the rank of the greater. But one also finds in the human heart a depraved taste for equality, which impels the weak to want to bring the strong down to their level, and which reduces men to preferring equality in servitude to inequality in freedom.”

    “The best laws cannot make a constitution work in spite of morals; morals can turn the worst laws to advantage.”

    “I studied the Koran a great deal. I came away from that study with the conviction there have been few religions in the world as deadly to men as that of Muhammad. So far as I can see, it is the principal cause of the decadence so visible today in the Muslim world and, though less absurd than the polytheism of old, its social and political tendencies are in my opinion to be feared, and I therefore regard it as a form of decadence rather than a form of progress in relation to paganism itself.”

    “Socialism is a new form of slavery.”

    “As for me, I am deeply a democrat; this is why I am in no way a socialist. Democracy and socialism cannot go together. You can’t have it both ways.”

    “Democracy extends the sphere of individual freedom, socialism restricts it. Democracy attaches all possible value to each man; socialism makes each man a mere agent, a mere number. Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word: equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude.”

    “The most dangerous moment for a bad government is when it begins to reform.”

    “The Indian knew how to live without wants, to suffer without complaint, and to die singing.”

    “‘The will of the nation’ is one of those expressions which have been most profusely abused by the wily and the despotic of every age.”

    “A democratic government is the only one in which those who vote for a tax can escape the obligation to pay it.”

    “The Americans combine the notions of Christianity and of liberty so intimately in their minds, that it is impossible to make them conceive the one without the other; and with them this conviction does not spring from that barren traditionary faith which seems to vegetate in the soul rather than to live.”

    “Despotism may govern without faith, but liberty cannot. How is it possible that society should escape destruction if the moral tie is not strengthened in proportion as the political tie is relaxed? And what can be done with a people who are their own masters if they are not submissive to the Deity?”

    “After having thus successively taken each member of the community in its powerful grasp and fashioned him at will, the government then extends its arm over the whole community. It covers the surface of society with a network of small, complicated rules, minute and uniform, through which the most original minds and the most energetic characters cannot penetrate, to rise above the crowd. The will of man is not shattered, but softened, bent, and guided; men are seldom forced by it to act, but they are constantly restrained from acting. Such a power does not destroy, but it prevents existence: it does not tyrannize, but it compresses, enervates, extinguishes, and stupefies a people, till each nation is reduced to nothing better than a flock of timid and industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd.”

      I’ll answer that. Obama is circumventing the Constitution by imposing his will on the car companies, the banks, the mortgage companies, and the health care system. Obama makes no secret of installing Marxists, Communists, and Socialists into governbment positions. The question ia WHY? The answer is obvious…Obama wants to overthrow the Constitution. For what reason is Janet Napolitano asking for bids from private contractors to build FEMA Detention camps in all 50 States? Did she dream that up on her own? Who can be expected to be imprisoned in those camps? Us? If the illegal aliens aren’t to be arrested, then who?

    Chuck Woolery for President.

    Fantastic !!!

    Back in the August debates, former Speaker Newt Gingrich said some pretty prophetic words about the Washington Supercommittee, which never did come to a bipartisan agreement.

    Gingrich said:

    I think this ‘super committee’ is as dumb an idea as Washington has come up with. The idea that 523 Senators & Congressmen are gonna sit around for 4 months while 12 brilliant people, mostly picked for political reasons, are gonna sit in some room & brilliantly come up with a trillion dollars or force us to choose between gutting our military and accepting a tax increase is irrational. They’re gonna walk in just before Thanksgiving & say, ‘We can shoot you in the head or cut off your right leg, which do you prefer?’

    In that same debate Gingrich suggested they scrap the committee & assign every subcommittee the task of finding savings, adding “And they should do it out in the open through regular legislative order and get rid of this secret, phony business!”

    Somehow, at the last minute, they’ve reached some type of compromise. For months the Democrats refuse to cut entitlements but feel very generous in cutting our military budget and the GOP refused to raise taxes. Meanwhile we’ve been stuck in a dangerous downward spiral that had already caused our credit rating to drop this summer.

    So now, supposedly, we get the Keystone Pipeline project back. If Obama is truly serious about jobs creation, it’s the only thing that makes any sense. Before the compromise, the previous deal was that the oil deal from Canada was “delayed”, despite the fact that supporters said the pipeline could significantly reduce U.S. dependence on Middle Eastern oil and provide up to a million jobs.

    Ironically, I kind of wish the folks in Washington had consulted with Conservative game show host Chuck Woolery months ago about balancing our budget. In a very straightforward, common sense way, Woolery recently created a video offering ways he proposes to cut out some of the PORK from our budget, including the following cuts:
    •$90 million free mail for Congress
    •$146 million per year 1st Class Airfair Upgrades for Federal workers
    •$3.6 billion per year to run the UN
    •$200 million travel allowance for President
    •$30 billion farm subsidies
    •$30 billion department of energy
    •$1 million per year for albino squirrel studies
    •$77 billion Dept. of Education
    •$10.7 billion per year Environmental Protection Agency (GREEN HEADS SPIN!)

    I also believe it’s time we work on eliminating aid to foreign countries—beginning with all the Middle Eastern countries that DESPISE the United States and want all of us dead.

    I looked into how all this foreign aid got started and it basically began in a good, positive way with the Marshall Plan about 50 years ago.

    Originally, the Marshall Plan sought to help the suffering people of Europe rebuild their countries which had been devastated by World War II. However in 2011, foreign aid doesn’t help the US. Acc. to an MSU report:
    •Over 2 trillion dollars has been spent on US foreign aid since World War II; this amount equals 40% of America’s national debt.
    •It could have been used to fight poverty in the US.
    •Giving out foreign aid does not improve our national security. According to the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, many countries that receive US foreign aid often oppose pro-American actions and resolutions in the UN.
    •Pakistan is suspected of using US aid money to finance their nuclear-weapons development program.
    •Billions of dollars of aid have gone to the former Soviet empire, which fought a Cold War with us for 45 years.
    •American taxpayers, the people who have had to foot the bill for foreign aid programs, overwhelmingly oppose foreign aid and favor large cuts in it.
    •US foreign aid has not helped the countries who are recipients. According to a Clinton Admin report, most of Africa & parts of Latin America, Asia, & the Middle East are economically worse off today than they were 20 years ago, despite receiving significant amounts of US foreign aid.
    •According to the UN Development Program, 70 developing countries that are aid recipients are poorer now than they were in 1980; 43 are worse off than they were in 1970.
    •According to the US Agency for International Development, only a very small fraction of countries that begin to receive American aid in the 1950′s and 1960′s have become economically non-dependent.
    •Foreign aid increases the likelihood that the recipient government will embark on inefficient spending instead of research and development, and investment. In fact, about 75% of foreign aid money goes to into bureaucratic institutions, solely helping the elite (not the truly needy) of the recipient country.
    •The most successful developing countries have been the ones who have refused aid or who have been cut off from aid.

    Another thing we could/should

    • Mike Wilson

      This will kick you in the gut…

      Foreign aid… the large majority of it is spent on sending American Contractors and ‘Consultants’ chosen for their loyalty to the current government than they are for the expertise they are supposed to share…

      So the countries we say we send all this money to don’t actually get most of the money it goes to the administration’s cronies like ambassadorships… and then we wonder why countries who receive all this foreign aid do not appreciate us.

      Of course any money which actually makes it through is actually sent with strings attached which the countries blantantly say they will follow but latently don’t. This is only for bragging rights of those who ‘bargained’ with these countries to fall in line with our wishes… and then we are surprised a couple years down the road when we have to pay again to get the results we were supposed to get as these countries now have a means to extort us into paying them even more to keep their mouths shut and play along.

      Do away with the foreign aid and the pretenses and smokescreens all fall away and there is no way either party will allow this… unless Ron Paul wins the election by some miracle.

    Obama if he does this, he is buying votes-he thinks. There are many, many people out there who are poor whoa re going to say, “where is my benefits?” And perhaps he won’t gain as many votes as he might think. I pity the guy that has worked all his life, paid his bills on time and won’t receive any benefits. If Obama does this and congress lets him, all of them need to go in the next election. Obama needs to go regardless!

    @ Zeek 1 day, 5 hrs ago

    “Why is anyone surprised? Interest on loaned money violates the laws of Allah.”

    And Jesus and most other religions. Read your bible, its the only time that Jesus used physical force and it was to throw the temple sodomites (money changers) out of the temple.

    The only people that would charge interest on a loan ( money they borrowed from you in the first place, meaning they charge you a fee for you to borrow your own money) are criminals and Rush wants you to defend them which makes you an excessary (sp?) to theft, grand theft, usury, perjury, RICO statutes, and the list goes on.

  • leon ewers

    @Zeek

    “Why is anyone surprised? Interest on loaned money violates the laws of Allah.”

    Matthew 21:10-12

    10 And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved , saying , Who is this? 11 And the multitude said , This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee. 12 And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves,

    The basic law against usury is found in Deut. 23:19, 20,

    19 You shall not charge interest to your countrymen, interest on money, food, or anything that may be loaned at interest. 20 You may charge interest to a foreigner, but to your countryman you shall not charge interest, so that the Lord your God may bless you in all that you undertake in the land which you are about to enter to possess.

    14 You shall not oppress a hired servant who is poor and needy, whether he is one of your countrymen or one of your aliens that is in your land in your towns … 15 so that he may not cry against you to the Lord, and it become sin in you… 17 You shall not pervert the justice due an alien or an orphan, nor take a widow’s garment in pledge. 18 But you shall remem-ber that you were a slave in Egypt, and that the Lord your God redeemed you from there; therefore I am commanding you to do this thing.

    Lev. 19:33, 34 says further,

    33 When a foreigner resides with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong. 34 The foreigner who resides with you shall be to you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself; for you were aliens in the land of Egypt; I am the Lord your God.

    Most Christians no longer think that usury is a sin. Though the Roman Church borrowed money at interest very early in its history, it always officially considered usury a sin until recently. On June 27, 1942, the Church established the Institute for Works of Religion (the Vatican Bank), funded by the donation of Mussolini in 1929.

    Most Protestants and evangelicals had already cast aside the law of God and saw no harm in usury. In fact, many justified it by a unique interpretation of Jesus’ parable in Luke 19. In that parable, the “nobleman” went on a journey and left varying amounts of money in the care of his servants. When he returned, two of the wiser servants had increased the money by trade—that is, lawful business.

    However, the third servant had a warped view of his master (who represented Jesus Himself). We read,

    20 And another came, saying, “Master, behold your mina [a certain type of money], which I kept put away in a handkerchief; 21 for I was afraid of you, because you are an exacting man; you take up what you did not lay down, and reap what you did not sow.”

    In other words, this foolish servant did not really know his master at all, and hence he was afraid to increase the “mina” by lawful trade. Further, he accused his master of being “an exacting man,” who was essentially a THIEF, reaping what he did not sow. So the master judged this servant by his own words:

    22 He said to him, ‘By your own words I will judge you, you worthless slave. Did you know [perceive] that I am an exacting man, taking up what I did not lay down, and reaping what I did not sow?23 Then why did you not put the money in the bank, and having come, I would have collected it with interest?”

    In other words, Jesus said, if you really thought that I was an unscrupulous tyrant that reaped where others had sown, then why did you not just put the money in the bank in order to collect interest on the money? That way, I could have increased my wealth by robbery.

    Interest on money was the equivalent of reaping where one has not sown.

    This parable employs irony. One cannot take this as a command to charge interest on money. In fact, it teaches precisely the opposite. Only an unscrupulous businessman would engage in the practice of usury, because charging interest is theft. It is reaping where one has not sown. It is unlawful profiteering on other people’s labor.

    But because the Church discarded the law of God, many have come to sanctify theft in the name of Jesus. Because of this, we allowed the practice of usury in our modern banking system. And hence, God put us into bondage to Mystery Babylon through the Federal Reserve Act, which put the entire nation and the Church itself into captivity.

    It is therefore important that we repent of our sin and obey God by faith. If we have faith in God, we will be obedient to Him and accept His ways, rather than accept the ways of our Babylonian masters. When we repent, then God will deliver us from Babylon and establish us in true prosperity under the laws of His Kingdom.

    Learn your bible or you will remain a slave.

    From Mike Montagne of People for Mathematically Perfected Economy :

    “Usury has existed for thousands of years, and may have been perpetuated by every worldly creed. Untold multitudes have died in the perpetual struggle against usury. Jesus Christ Himself was crucified soon after His famous demonstration at the temple of the money changers.

    In a train of events that would eventually inspire the American colonies to revolution, a German-born embezzler, trained by his father in matters of money and trading that he could become a Rabbi, rose from a Jewish slum to become the present world’s father of international bankers. He would change his name from Mayer Amschel Bauer to Mayer Amschel Rothschild.

    Mayer Amschel Rothschild and his sons — equally trained in unearned profit (usury) and its vital complements of corruption, subversion, and deceit — would comprise the House of Rothschild, intervening upon production, consumer and government altogether, to amass, at the expense of everyone but the perpetrators, the greatest forfeitures of prosperity the world could know.

    From roots steeped in ferocious concepts of unearned profit, from a very need to subvert every properly administered economy, and by allies who peddled mercenary armies for the causes of plutocracy, untold blood would be spilled, untold injustice would be imposed, and by perpetual deception, usury would succeed in perpetual contradictions to truth, as authored by a seeming untouchable, inexhaustible, evil force.

    By the customary accumulations of usury, the House of Rothschild would gain prominent world power in little time. Rothschild, the voracious embezzler, would form the so-called Illuminati — a pretended, exalted body of useful learning, the purpose of which, by whatever necessary means, were to make the world itself the subject of his unearned confiscations.

    The people of every nation therefore would be made both the instruments and the objects of a predominate world power. Powerful nations overtaken by usury would serve to impose usury in every corner of the world. Every organization today which advocates government about a nucleus of ‘central banking’ is by intention a compliant servant of Rothschild’s prescription for usurped power, confiscation of wealth, and the extinguishing of individuality, freedom and justice necessary to his graft.

    No truly free nation could exist thereafter, because these central banks would so oppress every nation from the prosperity each would achieve otherwise, that a single nation free of usury would be an outstanding testament to the crime being committed against the rest. Such a truly free nation would threaten the very existence of every central bank and usurer.

    For we need them not.

    Because the goals of usurers can be perceived, and because the goals of usurers cannot prevail if one important nation succeeds in achieving true economy, the present quest for world government was begun for Rothschild’s ends, at Rothschild’s command. Look around you and you will see that the central, ostensibly beneficial concept of that quest, is entrenchment of Rothschild’s purported ‘economic’ system.

    In his own personal testimony to the implications of his objectives, as the American Colonists fought a revolution to throw off his first imposition of a central banking system on America, Rothschild declared arrogantly, ‘Let me issue and control a nation’s money, and I care not who writes its laws.’

    Certainly not, because he would soon own every politician in the world. Thus, despite the social atrocity of debt multiplied to any magnitude, none of them who ostensibly serve their people would ever hear a plea for perfected economy.

    The modern era of financial, political, social, commercial and military strife and subversion had begun.“

    Thomas Jefferson speaking on the first attempt to establish a central bank in America:

    “The system of banking is a blot left in all our Constitutions, which, if not covered, will end in their destruction. I sincerely believe that banking institutions are more dangerous than standing armies; and that the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity is but swindling futurity on a large scale.”

    “The end of democracy, and the defeat of the American revolution will occur when government falls into the hands of the lending institutions and moneyed incorporations.”

    “If the people ever allow the banks to issue their currency, the banks and corporations which will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property, until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”

    “Paper is poverty… It is not money, but the ghost of money.”

    “There is an artificial aristocracy, founded on birth and privelege, without virtue or talents… The artificial aristocracy is a mischievous ingredient in government, and provisions should be made to prevent its ascendency.”

    “The bank of the United States is one of the most deadly hostilities existing against the principles and form of our Constitution. I deem no government safe which is under the vassalage of any self-constituted authorities, or any other authority than that of the nation, or its regular functionaries. What an obstruction could not this bank of the United States, with all its branch banks, be in a time of war? It might dictate to us the peace we should accept, or it might withdraw its aid. Ought we then to give further growth to an institution so powerful, so hostile?”

    James Madison speaking on the first attempt to establish a central bank in America:

    “History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit and violent means possible, to maintain their control over governments, by controlling money and its issuance.”

    “It is proper to take alarm at the first experiment on our liberties. We hold this prudent jealousy to be the first duty of citizens and one of the noblest characteristics of the late revolution. The free men of America did not wait until usurped power has strengthened itself by exercise and entangled the question in precedents. They saw all the consequences in the principle, and they avoided the consequences by denying the principle.”

    1764 Benjamin Franklin is asked by officials of the Bank of England to explain the prosperity of the colonies in America. He replies,

    “That is simple. In the Colonies we issue our own money. It is called Colonial Scrip. We issue it in proper proportion to the demands of trade and industry to make the products pass easily from the producers to the consumers. In this manner creating for ourselves our own paper money, we control its purchasing power, and we have no interest to pay no one.”

    As a result of Franklin’s statement, the British Parliament hurriedly passed the Currency Act of 1764. This prohibited colonial officials from issuing their own money and ordered them to pay all future taxes in gold or silver coins. Referring to after this act was passed, Franklin would state the following in his autobiography,

    “In one year, the conditions were so reversed that the era of prosperity ended, and a depression set in, to such an extent that the streets of the colonies were filled with the unemployed…The colonies would gladly have borne the little tax on tea and other matters had it not been that England took away from the colonies their money which created unemployment and dissatisfaction.

    The viability of the colonists to get power to issue their own money permanently out of the hands of King George III and the international bankers was the prime reason for the revolutionary war.”

    Why Tea Party Voters Are Returning to Ron Paul
    Gadhafi’s Gold-money Plan Would Have Devastated Dollar

    I know what happened in Libya

    by SON OF THUNDER on NOVEMBER 19, 2011 · LEAVE A COMMENT · in EDITORIALS

    Are you wondering what really happened in Libya? Does it just seem confusing to you that a band of rebels just happened to suddenly rise up and take over the country? Why was it necessary that the US and other European countries assist in this?

    Well, I have the answer: Libya was refusing to bow down to the central bankers that control the currency of international exchange (The dollar) and the currencies of the major industrialized nations. Ghaddafi was in fact attempting to establish a gold backed currency for the continent of Africa. This would mean a sudden reversal in fortunes as the price of gold has skyrocketed with all of the central bank-fueled inflation. Africa could have become the richest and most prosperous economy in a matter of years had Ghaddafi been successful.

    I had this intuition when the conflict first started because, as a person who researches currency issues, I knew about the movement for the African Dinar (the gold backed currency,) but now I have found an article (with references) that puts all of the pieces together:

    According to a Russian article titled “Bombing of Lybia – Punishment for Ghaddafi for His Attempt to Refuse US Dollar,” Gadaffi made a similarly bold move: he initiated a movement to refuse the dollar and the euro, and called on Arab and African nations to use a new currency instead, the gold dinar. Gadaffi suggested establishing a united African continent, with its 200 million people using this single currency. During the past year, the idea was approved by many Arab countries and most African countries. The only opponents were the Republic of South Africa and the head of the League of Arab States. The initiative was viewed negatively by the USA and the European Union, with French president Nicolas Sarkozy calling Libya a threat to the financial security of mankind; but Gadaffi was not swayed and continued his push for the creation of a united Africa.

    And that brings us back to the puzzle of the Libyan central bank. In an article posted on the Market Oracle, Eric Encina observed:

    One seldom mentioned fact by western politicians and media pundits: the Central Bank of Libya is 100% State Owned. . . . Currently, the Libyan government creates its own money, the Libyan Dinar, through the facilities of its own central bank. Few can argue that Libya is a sovereign nation with its own great resources, able to sustain its own economic destiny. One major problem for globalist banking cartels is that in order to do business with Libya, they must go through the Libyan Central Bank and its national currency, a place where they have absolutely zero dominion or power-broking ability. Hence, taking down the Central Bank of Libya (CBL) may not appear in the speeches of Obama, Cameron and Sarkozy but this is certainly at the top of the globalist agenda for absorbing Libya into its hive of compliant nations.

    Libya not only has oil. According to the IMF, its central bank has nearly 144 tons of gold in its vaults. With that sort of asset base, who needs the BIS, the IMF and their rules?

    ” Does it just seem confusing to you that a band of rebels just happened to suddenly rise up and take over the country?”

    Who was this band of rebels?
    Al Qaeda of course. Financed by who?
    CIA of course, America. Why?
    Read above blog. World inslavement, domination.
    Babalons dreams come true, to own and control every human being.
    Hu – man?
    Hu = God
    Man = you
    Bible – man is created in his image = Hu (god) + man = godman or human.
    I am afraid that these tyrants don’t have long to mend their ways and those that worship them (Rush) don’t have long either. The reckoning is coming soon so you folks better prepare yourselfs cause hell is coming to breakfast.

    When will the Congress get some “balls”, When will this “jerk” be IMPEACHED????????

  • Wedge

    I have said this from before “It” took office. If you put all his actions through this filter, it all makes sense:

    “obama is a muslim terrorist put in power by middle-eastern money to destroy the country from within”

    And so sounds the death of freedom to the applause of a sycophantic media.

    To quote a favorite movie of mine, “What will you do without FREEDOM !”

    obama should be IMPEACHED for High Crimes & Treason, but there isn’t a pair of ballocks amoung the whole collaborating congress.

    • Wayne Peterkin

      He has not been impeached and will not be impeached because there are nowhere near enough votes in Congress to make an impeachment charge stick. Harry Reid alone could and would block an impeachment move. While I agree with you that impeachment is justified and needed, it will not happen. There is even a good chance that this abomination could be re-elected so he can continue the “fundamental transformation of America”! That the nation could possibly even consider re-election of this charlatan amazes me! How could we possibly have sunk so low?

    Barack Obama has been on record as having little regard for our Constitution since long before he was elected President. He has adopted policies that are blatantly unconstitutional in spite of taking a very serious and solemn oath to uphold, protect, and defend that document.

    Our nation was founded on the principle of being a nation of laws, not of men. Yet Obama refuses to accept or abide by that principle.

    In other words, he has committed far more egregious crimes against the Constitution and our system of government than Richard Nixon or any other former president I could name, including the perjury of Bill Clinton. Yet he is given a free pass by most of the media, almost every elected Democrat, every liberal, and most of all the U.S. Senate. I can only imagine the screams demanding impeachment by these very same groups if a conservative Republican had committed similar acts.

    The hypocrisy on the left and the double standard is truly astounding

    Actually, it might be a real way of re-distributing the wealth. This is a dangerous issue because so many people are affected! There has been a huge wealth transfer in America. A lot of very wealthy people have grown even weathier! Don’t discount the idea! Barack Obama might win hundreds of thousands of votes if he decided to “gratis” mortgages.

      WITH THE TREMENDIOUS AMOUNT OF BLACK PEOPLE IN SECTION 8 HOUSING, RENTING, SQUATING, AND HOMELESS, THEY FEEL ANYBODY THAT WOULD OWN A HOME IS CONSIDERED “RICH” BY COMPARISON.
      NOW IF obummer GIVES MORE MONEY AWAY FOR THE “RICH” PEOPLE MORTGAGES, THE ABOVE MENTIONED BLACK PEOPLE HAVE BEEN OVERLOOKED AGAIN. THE BLACK PEOPLE ALREADY FEEL THAT obummer HAS DONE NOTHING TO HELP THEM. FREE MORTGAGES WILL NOT BRING obummer VOTES FROM THE BASE HE EXPECTS TO GET GUARANTEED VOTES FROM, HE WILL ALIENATE THAT BASE.
