Voter fraud watch: They’re at it again

Voter fraud watch: They’re at it again

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 25, 2010 08:36 AM

Here we go again. Desperation plus the by-any-means-necessary credo plus a nationwide force of Alinsky avengers equals another recipe for voter fraud.
In Colorado, it’s Common Cause of Colorado, Mi Familia Vota Education Fund and the Service Employees International Union caught in an apparent scheme to foist some 6,000 shady voter registrations on the state:
A federal judge declined to force the secretary of state to reactivate approximately 6,000 new voters whose registrations were canceled under Colorado’s 20-day rule.
In a decision issued Monday, Senior U.S. District Judge John L. Kane denied a motion for a preliminary injunction that was requested by several labor and voting-rights groups.
When a new voter registers in Colorado, the secretary of state mails a nonforwardable notice of disposition that the voter’s registration has been received. If the notice comes back undeliverable in the mail, then clerks deem the voter’s registration inactive within 20 days.
Melody Mirbaba, an assistant attorney general, argued that the 20-day rule is designed to stop voter fraud and duplicate registrations.
In Arizona, it’s illegal alien amnesty-supporting, SEIU-tied Mi Familia Vota again and One Vote Arizona submitting massive, last-minute voter registrations. The race between rocket scientist Ruth McClung and open-borders radical Raul Grijalva is down to the wire. Maria Carvajal at Publius Pundit reports:
The Yuma Sun is reporting that two organizations — Mi Familia Vota and One Vote Arizona — submitted more than 3000 voter registrations in Yuma County, and more than 20,000 voters statewide. Even more, they have signed up 43,000 people statewide for the permanent early voter list.

What they didn’t tell you is that voter fraud on a massive scale could be taking place, ostensibly to help Raul Grijalva keep the congressional seat he holds by stealing the election.

Here’s what the article doesn’t tell you, by a source in the Yuma County Recorder’s Office:
* These 3000 voter registration forms were all dropped off at once by the one group on the deadline to turn in voter registration forms.
* Almost all of the registrations were for the Democratic Party, a statistical improbability at best.
* Today, these same 3000 newly registered voters — as a group — had papers dropped off at the Yuma Recorder’s office requesting to be signed up for the permanent early voters list… which means the ballots will be mailed early, with no accountability.
* The Yuma Recorder’s office is checking the voter registration forms and have found that already more than 65% of them are invalid due to the registrant not being a citizen, wrong/invalid address, false signature, etc.

Now, the question is: is voter fraud taking place in Yuma County… and is it taking place on an even bigger scale in Pima County?

So far, the partisan Democrat in charge of the Pima County Recorder’s Office, F. Ann Rodriguez, has been completely silent about any such activity, though certainly even just a few thousand votes could change the outcome of the race between rocket scientist Ruth McClung and boycotter Raul Grijalva.
In Washington state, it’s illegal alien amnesty-supporting OneAmerica Votes sending illegal alien canvassers out to drum up votes:
When Maria Gianni is knocking on voters’ doors, she’s not bashful about telling people she is in the country illegally.

She knows it’s a risk to advertise this fact to strangers — but it’s one worth taking in what she sees as a crucial election.

The 42-year-old is one of dozens of volunteers — many of them illegal immigrants — canvassing neighborhoods in the Seattle area trying to get naturalized citizens to cast a ballot for candidates like Democratic Sen. Patty Murray, who is in a neck-and-neck race with Republican Dino Rossi.

Pramila Jayapal, head of OneAmerica Votes, says the campaign is about empowering immigrants who may not feel like they can contribute to a campaign because they can’t vote.
“Immigrants really do matter,” Jayapal said. “If we can’t vote ourselves, we’re gonna knock on doors or get family members to vote.”
In Florida, it’s suspected absentee ballot fraud — from within a city commissioner’s office:
When police raided Daytona Beach City Commissioner Derrick Henry’s office this week and seized his computer, they say they discovered evidence of what election experts say has become a rampant, largely ignored and troubling issue in Florida — the widespread abuse of absentee ballots.

Police say Henry’s computer was used to obtain dozens of absentee ballots prior to the city’s Aug. 24 elections, in which he was re-elected.

The Daytona Beach probe started when an elections supervisor noticed that as many as 90 absentee ballots had been requested from two e-mail addresses, and that they came from a single computer. (It is illegal in Florida for anyone other than a family member to help in requesting an absentee ballot.)

Volusia County Election Supervisor Ann McFall said she grew suspicious “because 40 requests arrived in one batch on the night of Aug. 6, and another 15 the next day.

“The absentee ballots had no phone numbers on them, and my first concern was to get them in compliance. I emailed the sender and when I got no response checked with the Daytona Beach clerk, because all the requests were from Zone 5 and he didn’t recognize the address. Then I handed it over to the sheriff’s office,” she said.

Police tracked the computer to the office of Henry, the city commissioner from Zone 5, who was running for re-election — and who easily defeated his two opponents with 65 per cent of the vote.
In New York, FNC’s Eric Shawn reports on another absentee ballot scheme implicating the ACORN-tied Working Family Party and a ring of Democrat officials:
There are various allegations of possible voter fraud across the country, against both parties, but nowhere does there seem to be a more unusual case than in Troy, New York.

A special prosecutor investigating allegations of voter fraud, Trey Smith, is collecting DNA from the majority of the city council…all Democrats. Five city councilmen, including the council president, as well as four other city and county public officials and political operatives, have been ordered to or have had their saliva swabbed for DNA samples to compare to absentee ballots and absentee ballot applications that were allegedly forged.

The investigation centers on what has been called “a massive voter fraud scheme,” that involved absentee ballots for the Working Families Party, in September 2009. It has been alleged that Democrats tried to steal the primary election for city council and county legislature, by forging absentee ballots and ballot applications to ensure that their candidates also won the Working Families Party primary line.

‘No comment,” is what Democratic Council member Gary Galuski told us, as well as several other public officials who are under investigation.
In Texas, citizen watchdogs have joined True the Vote to monitor and strike back against election fraud in Harris County:
Talk about denial! A group of liberal activists is making the media rounds, assuring reporters and editors that election fraud is a fairy tale. Nothing serious, they assert, nothing to see here. Too bad for them that citizens in Houston, energized by the Tea Party movement, have formed a group called True the Vote. Their hard work has demonstrated that, in some parts of the country at least, our election system is still infested with problems.

True the Vote is composed entirely of volunteers — hundreds of them. They have pored over election records in Harris County, Texas, looking for signs of fraud. And they have found plenty. Indeed, their initial research into only a very small portion of the voter registration records has led them to ask the U.S. Justice Department’s Voting Section to conduct a federal investigation.
In a letter asking for an official inquiry, True the Vote discusses potential widespread forgery in voter application forms. For instance, it seems from the applications that someone suspiciously signs the letter “J” with a quirky “3” inside the loop. The “3” shows up in multiple signatures for different voters with the names Jenard, Jamark, Jamarcus, and Jones.

True the Vote reports that at least four noncitizens have been registered to vote in Harris County. The group provided Justice with the actual voter registration forms where applicants marked “NO” to the question: “Are you a U.S. Citizen?” The group also provided the voter registration numbers of these confessed noncitizens. Yes, astonishingly, Harris County registered them to vote anyway. They are now on the rolls and able to participate in the upcoming midterm elections.

The Help America Vote Act of 2002 was supposed to stop this from happening. But this federal legislation is only as good as the Justice Department’s willingness to enforce it. If Harris County is registering noncitizens, then it is violating numerous provisions of federal law, including those that prohibit the registration of foreigners to vote in federal elections.

True the Vote uncovered other types of fraud as well. The group forwarded to DOJ seven voter registration forms with applicant names different from the signature name. For example: Ta’mackayn Harrison’s application was signed by “Bra Kelly.” Jason King’s was signed by “Jemma Noel.” Yet Harris County inexplicably approved all of these applications. Jason King, aka Jemma Noel, is now on the voter rolls in Houston.

The citizens group also found multiple registrations for individual voters. For example, True the Vote provided the Justice Department government documents showing that at least four persons, including Jose Gomez and Victor Nickerson, had registered to vote multiple times successfully.
These problems were found by True the Vote in just a small sampling of the county’s voter registration list.

Commercial from the Chicago Tea Party. Do these people look angry to you? Do these people look like radical extremists? They're real, and they're voting in November.

For more information on the Chicago Tea Party, please visit

Here is the text of the video:

I'm a mother, I'm a small business owner, I'm a mom, I'm a social worker, I am a songwriter, I am an American and I vote. I'm not violent. I'm not extreme. I'm not funded by a corporation or foreign I'm not angry. I'm informed and I'm involved. The tea party movement is made up of individuals who believe in liberty, the Constitution and fiscal responsibility.

I believe our government is limited by the Constitution. I believe in less government and more freedom. But there's a ruling class in Washington who feels differently. They say they don't care about the Constitution. They mock the 10th Amendment and the Bill or Rights.

They think they know better than us. But we have a message for them: they don't. We want more freedom, not more debt. We want more jobs, not more bureaucrats. No more takeovers, no more bailouts, no more spending and no more government control.

Washington needs to know they work for us, we don't work for them. Talk to your friends and neighbors. Let them know our children and grandchildren's future is at stake in this election. I'm voting for liberty in November -- are you?

Sharron Angle Hits Obama in Blistering New Ad

Rep. Moran (D) Serving in the military isn't public service and you need to redistribute your wealth

First, lets start with this video. Congressman Jim Moran has the gall to imply that serving your country in the military for 24 years is not "public service."

Virginia Congressman Jim Moran, D-8th, doesn’t think serving in the military is public service. At the October 6th meeting of the Arlington County Democratic Committee, Moran was videotaped telling fellow party members:

“What [Republicans] do is find candidates, usually stealth candidates, that haven’t been in office, haven’t served or performed in any kind of public service. My opponent is typical, frankly.”

However, Moran’s opponent happens to be Col. Patrick Murray (US Army-Ret.), who served 24 years in uniform, was deployed to four different combat zones, including Baghdad, as part of the 2007 troop surge under Gen. David Petraeus, and was even shot at by foreign combatants. If that isn’t public service, I don’t know what is.

Paper shuffling in Washington, apparently. And this was not Moran’s only military-related misstep.
On October 11th, the Military Officers Association of America sent a letter to the Moran campaign requesting that the congressman stop distributing a flyer clearly implying that MOAA had endorsed Moran for reelection.

“Serving honorably in the military, as Col. Murray did for 24 years, is the best kind of public service anyone can do for our great nation,” says Tommy Valentine, webmaster of “Moran needs to apologize.”

Now check out this video from Jim Moron...oops, I mean Moran on Redistribution of Wealth from 2008~

Jim Moran describes his views on american workers having their wealth redistributed. Go to to learn about the Moran opposition.

 "We have been guided by Republicans that believe in this simplistic notion that people that have wealth are entitled to keep it and they have an atipathy towards a means of re-distributing wealth. They may be able to sustain that for a while... but it doesn't work in the long run." circa 2008

Congressman Jim Moran was first elected in 1990 and is currently carrying out his tenth term as U.S. Representative from Northern Virginia.

Chinese Professor-The Fall Of The United States Of America

An exceptional, if not alarming video ad (1:03 mins.) prepared by Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW).


Donate to help end wasteful deficit spending at This new ad is part of an ongoing communications program in CAGW's decades-long fight against wasteful government spending, increased taxes, out-of-control deficit spending, and a crippling national debt that threatens the future and survival of our country.

If this doesn't wake up America..........nothing will. This is very prophetic because this is what could happen tomorrow if China "called the note."
"I realize that on the sea of life, I can't control the weather, but I can adjust my sails"


Kuddos to Sean Bielat for running what easily might be the political ad of the year. Barney Frank is undoubtedly in trouble this year when he sends his own boyfriend to heckle Sean Bielat and has no choice but to loan his campaign $200,000 of his own money.

NAACP Racist Hypocrisy

St Louis NAACP Hypocrites Preach to The Tea Party.

Thank you Sharp Elbows for REAL journalism!!!


Undecided On Your Vote? Watch

This compilation of reminders of just who Barack Obama is can be found at Socialism Is Not The Answer
This list is truly shocking. Take a close look at how many communists/Marxists were his friends. Davis spied for the Soviet Union. Obama wants to shut down America’s nuclear arsenal but won’t intercept North Korean Communist missiles, nor will he stop Iran, a terrorist sponsor, from developing nuclear bombs.
I must say, I find the sealing of his records going back to childhood, utterly bizarre. What the heck is there to hide?

It mentions he can list all of America’s failings, but none of its accomplishments. I have been saying for quite a time that President Obama HATES AMERICA, and if this doesn’t prove it to you, nothing will. Why does he surround himself with Communists, members of the Socialist Party, Radicals from Bill Ayers to the NAACP, Jeremiah Wright, The New Black Panther Party, La Raza, Unions and the list could go on and on with groups and organizations that are on the record saying they want to destroy America as we know it.

Barack Obama is less of a person than an image— a brand. People see what ever they want as they do on a Rorschach test.

But does anyone really know him? In fact, he is:
* A man with no birth certificate.

* A man whose birth records, both in the United States and Kenya, are sealed by government order.

* A man whose childhood mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, spied on U.S. military installations in Hawaii for the Soviet Union, edited a communist newspaper, authored pornographic novels, and wrote poetry in praise of Joseph Stalin.

* A man who promised transparency in government, but has spent over a million dollars in legal fees hiding information that would determine his eligibility to be President.

* A man whose academic records are sealed from kindergarten through law school.

* A man who arrived in New York in June of 1981 without enough money to get a hotel room, but one month later flew to Indonesia and Pakistan.

* Why did he go?
* Who paid his expenses?

* A man who traveled to Pakistan when it was illegal for U.S. citizens to do so. So what country’s passport did he use?
* A man whose Law School Admission Test scores and grades at Columbia University are known to have been mediocre, but was admitted to Harvard Law School through the intervention of a Saudi named Khalid al -Mansour.

* A law review editor who never published an article in any law review.

* A lawyer with no significant accomplishments in the law and no reputation in the legal community.

* A former State and U.S. Senator, who never authored a piece of legislation.

* A disciple of the Marxist Saul Alinsky.

* A product of the Chicago political machine—the most corrupt political organization in America.

* A man who selects Marxists, corrupt politicians, and criminals as his close political associates and personal friends.

* A man whose presidential candidacy was endorsed by the Democratic Socialists of America, the Socialist International, and the Workers International League.

* A man lauded for the literary brilliance of two memoirs, both of which were ghostwritten by others.

* A so-called Christian who says that knowing when human life begins is “above his pay-grade,” but somehow knows that abortion is permissible at any stage.

* A man who thinks “waterboarding” is immoral, but that partial-birth abortion and live birth abortion are moral.

* A man who publicly laments slavery in America—which was abolished 150 years ago—but praises Islam, which still practices both slavery and the sexual mutilation of young girls.

* A man who speaks endlessly about helping the less fortunate, but gives almost none of his sizable income to charity—not even to his half-brother, who is living in squalor in Kenya.

* A man who had the most left-wing voting record in the United State Senate, but was predicted by the press to “govern from the middle.”

* A man who has never created a job, met a payroll, or even operated a lemonade stand, but wants to tell Detroit how to make cars.

* A President who has never before served as an executive in either the private or the public sector.

* A Commander-in-Chief who doesn’t know how to shoot a rifle, throw a hand-grenade, drive a tank, fly a plane, or con a ship.

* A Commander-in-Chief who has publicly divulged some of our nation’s most important intelligence secrets.

* A man who has been put in charge of the largest economic engine that ever existed, but has never invested in the stock market and admits total ignorance of it.

* A President who says that science will guide his administration, but has no education in the sciences.

* A man who is proficient in reading what is written for him on a teleprompter, but jerks and stammers his way through any off-the-cuff speaking.

* A man whose health records are sealed from childhood to the present day.

* A man who spent 20 years in a church whose pastor espouses Marxist Liberation Theology, anti-Americanism, anti-capitalism, and anti-Semitism, but claims he never heard his pastor utter anti-American, and anti-Semitic statements.

* A man who added more to the National Debt in 120 days than all other Presidents did in the past 220 years, yet feels qualified to lecture Americans about “fiscal responsibility”.

* A man who publicly expressed disdain for the U.S. Constitution on a Chicago radio station because it limited the government’s ability to “redistribute wealth.”

* A narcissist who gave the Queen of England a present from the United States –an iPod containing recordings of his own speeches.

* A so-called Christian who officially declared “Pride Month” for a lifestyle that the Bible calls an abomination.

* A man who wanted Americans to ignore his Muslim name during his election campaign, yet boasts of his Muslim name when he travels to Muslim countries.

* A man who can name hundreds of America’s shortcomings, yet none of its great accomplishments.

* A President who claims the moral high ground by closing Gitmo yet supports the transfer of terror suspects to countries where horrific torture is certain.

* A President who scoffed at being called a socialist yet acted to nationalize the auto industry, the banking industry, and the insurance industry . . . and now seeks to nationalize the health care industry.

* A President who violates private property rights, the sanctity of contracts, and the rule of law—three essential principles that go back over a thousand years in the Common Law tradition.

* A man who promised 95% of all Americans a tax cut, but is increasing taxes on 100% of the population through inflation—the cruelest tax of all.

* A lawyer who represented ACORN—an organization now indicted in several states for voter fraud—whose stated goal is to get as many people on welfare as possible in order to destroy our financial system.

* A President who cheated GM’s bondholders by giving their property to the UAW in a political payoff.

* An American President who frequently criticizes his own country when speaking in foreign countries, but never praises America’s generosity, goodness or greatness.

* A President whose Secretary of the Treasury cheated on his taxes—as did several other appointees and advisers.

* A President who scoffs at being called a socialist, yet has appointed 28 “Czars” to circumvent constitutional government, including:

* A “Science Czar” who has advocated compulsory abortions for American women and the “surrender of sovereignty” to a “comprehensive Planetary Regime.”

* A self-professed communist as his “Green Jobs Czar”. A “Pay Czar” to regulate the pay of corporate executives.

* A President who swore an oath to “preserve, protect and defend the constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic,” yet has nominated a domestic enemy of the Constitution to the Supreme Court.

* A President whose Homeland Security Chief classified pro-lifers, veterans, and supporters of traditional marriage as terrorists.

* A President who stood silent while the Iranian government hacked unarmed protesters to death with axes, because it was an internal matter, but freely offers his opinions about the internal affairs of Israel and Honduras.

* A President who decreed that true acts of terrorism must now be described as “man-made disasters.”

* A President who cracks hurtful jokes about Special Olympians.

* A President who refused to intercept or inspect a North Korean ship virtually certain to be carrying Weapons of Mass Destruction to Burma.

* A President who wants to cancel all missile defenses while rogue nations are developing long-range ballistic missiles.

* An American President who blames the violence in Mexico on America.

* A Commander in Chief who claims to have been unaware that Air Force One was taken on a terrifying, low-level photo-op over Manhattan.

* A President who berates American CEO’s for flying in private planes at private expense on company business, but whose wife spends hundreds of thousands tax payer dollars flying to Paris for a shopping spree.

* A President who promised a transparent administration, but requires all questions be screened before “impromptu” appearances.

* A man who freely admitted that his energy policies are designed to bankrupt the American coal industry.

* A President who has presided over the loss of 14.7 million jobs and whose “energy policy” will cause the loss of another 1 million jobs.

* A President whose “energy policy” will increase the average American’s utility bills by over $2,000 a year in the middle of the Great Recession.
 * A President that imposed a drilling moratoreum while sending operators of rigs to other parts of the world to drill.
* A President that declared that the stimulus bill must be passed to "Save" us from doom and that there were "shovel ready jobs"...only to now say there's no such thing as a shovel ready job.
* A President that has made it perfectly clear that he will continue to try to divide this country using race and class warfare.
* A President that has made it perfectly clear that he hates capitalism and will do what is necessary to destroy business while demonizing anything or anyone that supports business.
A vote for Obama or anyone that supports Obama, is a vote to take this country down the road of Socialism. Socialism has been proven to fail 100% of the time.  While less than 20% of this country leans extreme left, how have they come to be so powerful.  Their power has come from decades of infiltrating various segments of our society (schools, judicial seats, elected state and federal positions, unions, government funded agencies and community organizations and the ACLU) and "nudging" us towards an immoral and government dependent society.

If that is the type of country you want to live in (be careful what you wish for) then go right ahead and vote Democrat.  The Democratic party of today is not the same that our parents and grandparents believed in.  The Democratic party of today is supported and funded by Socialist, Marxist and radical left wing Eco-terrorists that want to scare you into believing that business and capitalism are EVIL, the government needs to control all aspects of your life and a 2" fish has more rights than and unborn baby or an entire farming town (check out these videos).

Sean Hannity exposes government imposed drought to protect a 2" minnow while devastating thousands of people and rendering their farmland useless.

Congressman Nunes calls out Secretary of State Ken Salazar on the government mandated drought imposed on his constituents. Ken Salazar's response, "A man made drought? I beg to differ..."  What the H*** is it then when the government turns the water off?

Please pass this appears the Democrats have narrowed the gap in some of the upcoming elections and in some cases have taken a lead. 



It is no secret that the left has already planned on winning through voter fraud.  It is imperative that you take action and report anything that appears to be fraudulent and it is MOST imperative that you vote!!!!

Sheriff Joe Arpaio Arrests Illegals At Meat Packing Plant Opening Up Employment Opportunities for AMERICAN citizens


MCSO raids Valley business and arrests 14 illegal immigrants. People line up outside business for their jobs.

Sheriff’s Office Arrests Now Stand at 435 in Employer Sanction/Identity Theft Investigations
October 12, 2010
Phoenix, AZ. - Maricopa County Sheriff’s deputies conducted an early morning raid arresting 14 workers (nine male, five female) in the Office’s 39th identity theft operation.
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio says his detectives were acting on information received from inside sources claiming the business has been knowingly hiring illegal aliens who are using false identification to work in the United States.
Today’s raid comes on the heels of a controversial court ruling in favor of those who are suing Arpaio to stop Arizona’s enforcement of SB1070.

“My job as Sheriff is to continue to enforce all the laws of this state until when and if courts rule that law enforcement authorities can no longer enforce the immigration laws enacted by this state. I will not be intimidated by the falsehoods of some racial profiling allegations or by the politicos in Washington who want to minimize this issue.”

In addition to this morning’s raid, Sheriff Arpaio’s deputies have arrested 421 employees during similar workplace investigations, all of whom were later determined to be in the United States illegally.

Sheriff Arpaio says, “The benefits of these identity theft operations is they open up jobs for legal citizens to work and they act as a deterrence to employers in our community who wish to circumvent the system by hiring illegal workers as a cheaper labor force.”

In the developing stages now, Arpaio says, is an all volunteer posse to augment the Sheriff’s SB1070 efforts. That posse is schedule to hit the streets within the next several weeks and will concentrate solely fighting illegal immigration.

Original article from Borderfire Report

Why We Had The Financial Ex~HUD Secretary Andrew Cuomo

Just a reminder of the REAL reason for the financial meltdown. The Democrats forcing banks to loan to those that could not afford it. When anyone tries to blame Bush and the Republicans, show them these clips.
Clinton HUD Secretary Andrew Cuomo announced a settlement of a lending discrimination complaint with Accubanc, a Texas lender whose prerequisites for mortgages came under attack from “community organizers” at the Fort Worth Human Relations Commission and the city of Dallas. I clipped out this sequence to underscore its importance:

CUOMO: To take a greater risk on these mortgages, yes. To give families mortgages that they would not have given otherwise, yes.

Q: [unintellible] … that they would not have given the loans at all?
CUOMO: They would not have qualified but for this affirmative action on the part of the bank, yes.

Q: Are minorities represented in that low and moderate income group?

CUOMO: It is by income, and is it also by minorities? Yes.

CUOMO: With the 2.1 billion, lending that amount in mortgages — which will be a higher risk, and I’m sure there will be a higher default rate on those mortgages than on the rest of the portfolio …

Here, in fact, is the genesis of the problem, the ideology that created the monster.  Cuomo, the Clinton administration, and Congress believed they had the right and the power to determine acceptable risk for the lenders, rather than lenders determining it for themselves in a free market.  Even while imposing risk standards on lenders, Cuomo admits that he expects a higher default rate on the new loans — which is why the lenders didn’t want to write them in the first place.

In other words, the CRA didn’t get used to fight discrimination, but to force lenders to give money to high-risk borrowers for political purposes.  And Cuomo knew it.

That was the political arrogance at the heart of the collapse.  However, the CRA was more a sideshow than the actual problem.  When Congress decided that enforcement alone wouldn’t generate enough mortgages to boost their political fortunes, they had Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac eliminate the risk entirely for lenders through the purchase of the sub prime loans.  Without that risk and with almost-guaranteed short-term profits of sub prime loans, lenders went wild while Fannie and Freddie repackaged them as quasi-government bonds for investors.

Post I did 11/1/2009

Sunday, November 1, 2009


These videos are right on target. I worked in the title business for 12 years. I can't tell you the volume of loans that closed that should have never been approved. The lax requirements pushed by the Democrats and their agenda continued this train wreck to where we are today.

In 2005 I approached the Vice President of the company I worked with and voiced my concern over the obvious loans consumers were approved for that were destined for foreclosure. I do not have a degree in economics, yet even I could see this coming. You can't possibly believe that these highly educated individuals running our country and ruining our financial industry did not see this coming as well. When President Bush and John McCain tried to rein in this out of control lending, (they obviously saw what I saw) they were voted down by every Democrat.

It is as if this was a deliberate act to destroy our financial industry. Create a financial crisis, and then point fingers at the Bush administration. I truly believe this was deliberate by the create a crisis. As Rahm Emmanuel said, "you should never let a good crisis go to waste."

I wonder how much money these scumbags made through hedge-funds etc that were betting against the housing market. It would be interesting to know if George Soros was heavily involved in this or not.

Don't you think it is bizarre that Chris Dodd and (then) Senator Obama were the number 1 and 2 recipients of campaign contributions? They were as deeply embedded in this implosion as anyone.

Do your'll find that this was a disaster that didn't have to least to the extent it did. If the Democrats would have done the right thing and voted to rein these out of control lending practices 4-5 years before now, this could have been avoided....but you see that would have been a win for the Bush administration. That would have pulled back the curtain on the corruption and the cooking of the books for Freddie, Fannie, and any number of other financial institutions. That would have dried up the campaign contributions for the Dems as well as uncovered some possible improprieties.

The Bush administration was not the cause of this economic tsunami. On the contrary, they were trying to do what they could to get it under control. The Democrats own this...but they will never admit it. That is why we need to educate those that are easily led by these liars in the White House, Senate and Congress. They all need to be voted out of office and we need to start with a clean slate.

We need God-fearing men and women of honor, good morals, integrity and those that really have our best interest at the forefront of every decision that they make. Anything less and there won't be any real will just remain the same.

The Truth About Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac from my perspective

More on what caused our financial crisis:

Timeline shows Bush, McCain warning Dems of financial and housing crisis; meltdown

Obama and Democrats are Responsible: Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac

To those who do not know my background....I worked in the Title business for 12 yrs. I can assure you that this economic tsunami of housing foreclosures was not a surprise to anyone in the mortgage, title, or real estate industry. I can personally attest to the fact that a large number of loans that closed in our office should have never made it to the closing table. The relaxed and/or non-existent credit guidelines truly allowed for almost anyone to get a loan. Thus the name "liar loans."

Most buyers had no skin in the game (no down payment). Instead, the seller would raise the price of the home and participate in a "down payment assistance program" that provided the necessary 3% down
pmt for the buyer or they would have an 80/20 loan that would also not require any down payment. Most loans were sub-prime and/or had adjustable rates as well as pre-payment penalties. If the customer tried to pay off the loan either through a sale or refinance within 2-5 yrs they would have to pay a substantial penalty. The majority of 80/20 loans had inflated interest rates 2-5 pts. above the going interest rate.

Many times I would ask the loan officers "how in the world could you get this customer approved?" They would respond: "This will at least get them into a house and I tell them to refinance in a couple of yrs to get a better rate." Well those couple of years have now passed for those customers and it is now impossible to refinance.  Their homes aren't worth what they owe and now the requirements are stricter to qualify.  So these homeowners that shouldn't have been approved for the loan in the first place, are stuck with these loans...or worse yet, have been or will soon be foreclosed on and we will be stuck with the tab.

About 5 years ago, the company I worked for lost it's biggest builder's business.  At that time, I discussed marketing options with the President of our company. Our company primarily worked with Realtors and had very little business with lenders (refinance business mainly). I told him that it was my opinion that we needed to aggressively market the mortgage lender business as it was my prediction that the market would soon experience a mortgage implosion greater than the late 70's and 80's. I could foresee that the main sellers in the near future were going to be the mortgage companies. It was obvious they were going to be holding the majority of homes for sale as foreclosures would explode.

I was given the title of
"Title Police" by my fellow co-workers. Whenever I saw obvious signs of loan fraud, I would sound the bells and blow the whistle. My co-workers would joke that they were going to give me a whistle to sound when I suspected a "fishy" loan. I do have to say that the company I worked for was very conservative and always stood behind their employees if they felt the loan didn't pass the "smell test".  They would encourage us to pass any information to our underwriter to review in order to determine if we should decline closing the transaction.  Every time we had clear concerns,  they supported our decision to not close the loan. Unfortunately, other title companies weren't as conservative and the loan would be moved down the road to close. Even worse, they would close these loans even after we would suggest that they take a close look at the file as there were concerns about the loan.

In 2005, John McCain introduced these videos that show that the Bush Administration, Alan Greenspan and John McCain had also seen this coming and tried to rein in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The most compelling video shows Barney Frank and other Democrats defending this mortgage fraud frenzy and touted how stable the mortgage industry was and how it had moved to put more people into homes than ever before (exactly..these were people that should have never been allowed to get these loans)...all the while Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are "
cookin their books" and lining the pockets of their top leaders that also were major contributors to the Democratic party and Barrack Obama specifically.

I also hold Acorn and others responsible as well.  They were the thugs threatening banks with lawsuits if they didn't relax their loan requirements. Freddie and Fannie helped perpetrate this loan fraud with complete support from Barney Franks, Franklin
Raines and any number of willing participants that turned a blind eye for the sake of the almighty dollar or power.

The sad thing is that I am no economist, I have no special skills at predicting the future. While Obama and his Gangster
Governmment want to continue to make Bush the demon behind this economic tsunami, I believe that if the mortgage lending had been reined in as far back as 2001, we would not find ourselves digging out of the mess we are currently in.

11 Foreign Governments Join The U.S. Department Of Justice Lawsuit To Overturn SB 1070

Just when you think you've seen and heard everything ......
Does President Obama want to make U.S. laws subordinate to international courts? 

From Politico

In a new twist in the fight over Arizona’s immigration law, Republican Gov. Jan Brewer on Tuesday asked a federal court to disallow foreign governments from joining the U.S. Department of Justice lawsuit to overturn the law. 

The move comes in response to a 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling issued Monday, allowing nearly a dozen Latin American countries — Mexico, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Peru and Chile — to submit friend-of-the-court briefs in Justice’s challenge to SB 1070, which Brewer signed into law in April and is considered one of the nation’s toughest immigration-enforcement measures. 

“As do many citizens, I find it incredibly offensive that these foreign governments are using our court system to meddle in a domestic legal dispute and to oppose the rule of law,” the Republican governor said in a statement shortly after the state’s motion was filed Tuesday evening. 

“What’s even more offensive is that this effort has been supported by the U.S. Department of Justice. American sovereignty begins in the U.S. Constitution and at the border,” she added. “I am confident the 9th Circuit will do the right thing and recognize foreign interference in U.S. legal proceedings and allow the State of Arizona to respond to their brief.” 

Brewer and her supporters have said the state law is necessary because the federal government has failed to protect the border and enforce immigration laws. But the Justice Department — with strong backing from President Barack Obama — sued to block the Arizona law on constitutional grounds. 

Responding to the suit, a federal judge in July put some of the most contested parts of the law on hold, including a provision that requires police officers to check the immigration status of individuals they stop for other offenses if there is “reasonable suspicion” they are in the country illegally. 

Brewer, who has vowed to take the case to the Supreme Court, appealed the decision to the 9th Circuit Court, which will begin hearing arguments in San Francisco on Nov. 1, one day before the midterm elections. 
The Arizona law is a top political issue nationally. Cities from San Francisco and Seattle to Baltimore have joined a friend of the court brief opposing the Arizona law, while 11 states — including Texas, Florida and Nebraska — filed an amicus brief backing the law.

In July, more than 80 Republican members of Congress signed their names to an amicus brief filed by the conservative Immigration Reform Caucus. They included Sens. Jim DeMint of South Carolina, David Vitter of Louisiana and John Barrasso of Wyoming, and Reps. Lamar Smith of Texas, Steve King of Iowa and Trent Franks of Arizona.

Brewer’s motion should resonate among conservative legal scholars worried about giving foreign legal systems a voice in American jurisprudence. These concerns are a reaction to a school of legal thought arguing that American judges should look to foreign laws and courts for assistance in interpreting the U.S.

Constitution, particularly in regard to basic human rights issues. Supreme Court Justice Anthony M. Kennedy is arguably the leading spokesperson for this approach, as noted in a 2005 New Yorker profile.

The state of Arizona’s motion could also strike a chord with those on the right who are convinced that President Barack Obama (and Bill Clinton before him) want to make U.S. laws subordinate to international courts, particularly the International Criminal Court in The Hague. Under Clinton, the United States signed a treaty to join the court weeks before leaving office in January 2001, though the Senate never ratified his action. Months later, President George W. Bush pulled the United States out of the treaty, saying he worried foreign governments would try to prosecute U.S. troops for alleged war crimes.

Pork 101~How Education Earmarks School Taxpayers by Senator Tom Coburn

Dr. Tom Coburn (R) Oklahoma has just released a report that exposes the misuse and abuse of our taxpayer dollars under the guise of Education reform.

Pork 101~How Education Earmarks School Taxpayers

Report Shows How Congress’ Parochial Education Projects are Harming Students, Delaying Reform and Undermining our Future

(WASHINGTON, D.C.)U.S. Senator Tom Coburn, M.D. (R-OK) has released an oversight report on education earmarks entitled “Pork 101: How Education Earmarks School Taxpayers.”
“The tragic story of American education since 1965 shows that virtually all efforts to reform the system have failed. Every meaningful measure of academic proficiency has either gone down or failed to improve in spite billions of dollars of education spending. Of course, the problems in our system are manifold. Yet, instead of leading the nation in a serious discussion about how to improve education, Congress has made the problem worse. As this report documents, Congress’ obsession with its own self-interested parochial projects are harming students, delaying reform and undermining our future,” Dr. Coburn said.

“This report doesn’t suggest there is one easy answer. Instead, my goal is to force Congress to ask the hard questions it has avoided as it has embarked on a futile and counterproductive orgy of earmarking. In many cases, earmarked projects are not given to schools and colleges with the greatest need but those with the best lobbyists. Thankfully, the American people, local communities, and even filmmakers are way ahead of Congress in this debate. People of good faith across the spectrum understand that even if we solve our debt crisis will never revitalize our economy and secure our freedoms if we don’t improve our failing education system. This report, I hope, will give the American people information and insight that will help hold members of Congress accountable,” Dr. Coburn said.

The report focuses on two federal programs, each intended to spur innovation of the American educational system, that have become slush funds for congressional pork projects: the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE) and the Fund for the Improvement of Education (FIE). These two programs fund 97 percent of all education pork projects. Over the last decade, Washington politicians obtained 5,563 earmarks costing nearly $2.3 billion through these programs.

Wasteful and egregious trends and projects highlighted in the report include the following:

• This decade, federal lawmakers secured over $181 million from FIPSE and FIE in support of honorary programs named after themselves and other politicians. (See pg. 40)

• Jackson State University received a nearly $500,000 FIPSE earmark to establish a school of osteopathic medicine despite having no intention of establishing the school. (See pg. 34)

• The U.S. Department of Education granted an extension of authority for an FIE earmarked project despite the fact that funds were being embezzled by its earmark manager, who is now serving 63 months in prison. (See pg. 36)

• A $200,000 FIPSE earmark was given to La Sierra University in California for a comprehensive university branding initiative. (See pg. 58)

• Oklahoma State University received a nearly $900,000 FIPSE earmark for a project that allowed participants to role play as members of Congress as they debate the current year’s budget and learn to responsibly negotiate budget decisions. (See pg. 45)

• Politicians have provided $3.2 million in FIPSE earmarks this decade to help fund scholarship and loan repayment programs for aspiring lawyers at Rutgers. (See pg. 38)

• $4.3 million has gone to support Big Labor through the National Labor College in Silver Spring, Maryland. (See pg. 55)

• A $200,000 FIPSE earmark went to Central Washington University for “curriculum development” – aka wine studies. (See pg. 57)

• In FY 2010, elected officials funneled a half million dollar FIE earmark to a private entity to develop an internet safety curriculum. Its cost was sufficient to prevent teacher layoffs in the school district where the private entity awarded the pork project was located. In fact, the earmark would have provided 65 percent of the district’s funding shortfall. (See pg. 30)

• Politicians provided the University of Hawaii - West Oahu a $200,000 FIPSE earmark to produce “Primal Quest,” a film documentary on some the most studied and photographed people in the world. (See pg. 57)

• A $25,000 FIE earmark went to Clark County School District in Las Vegas for mariachi music. (See pg. 56)

• While nobody likes negative children, it is a dubious national priority to earmark funds to deter negativity in children, yet lawmakers did just that. (See pg. 59)
