The Paul Ryan Budget Is Sinking the Romney Campaign

From the first day that Ryan joined the Romney ticket, the campaign has been running away from The Ryan Budget.

Fracktinis!

By: Saturday July 28, 2012 8:00 pm

Republic Report has story up about Washington lobbyist and movers and shakers being treated to red carpet cocktail party, film discussion and pro energy film trailers of movies made, by filmmakers I’ve never heard of, that are meant to serve as a counter weight to Gasland.

There were apparently, let them eat cake style, jokes about “Fracktinis” a reference to citizens in areas where fracking is done who now have flaming drinking water.

So, I thought we could make the Fracktini THE signature cocktail of 2012.

Protests and Street Theatre Planned for April 17th in NYC

So want to have some fun on April 17th when you drop off your tax return at the Post Office? It seems there are going to be some tax protests at different locations around New York City to call out some people and corporations who manipulate the tax code to pay a lower effective tax rate than the rate imposed on the 99%.

Big Empty Bag of Nothing

By: Wednesday April 4, 2012 3:30 pm

It has finally happened. Investors in a Residential Mortgage Backed Security {RMBS) have finally sued that the mortgages were never properly transferred into the trust.

The lawsuit was filed in the New York Supreme Court, New York County (that’s Manhattan to you off-islanders) on Monday. The Plaintiff is German Bank HSH Nordbank and it accuses Barclays of selling securities based on trusts that were supposed to have mortgages in them, but were actually empty.

Pity the Poor Judges

By: Monday February 27, 2012 4:15 pm

I just thought of something, if it is now acceptable to use forged and perjurious documents in foreclosure cases, DOCX, LPS and the other document mills have a huge new market available to them with homeowners. If forged and backdated allonges and assignments are OK, so too should be forged Satisfactions of Mortgage. Once the homeowner obtains a forged SAT from a document mill and files it with the county clerk, in theory, shouldn’t their foreclosure case be dismissed?

Once Again, Judges Step Up to the Plate When Prosecutors Fail

By: Thursday February 23, 2012 8:34 am

A while back, the Chief Judge in the State of New York issued an order that was a commonsense approach to robo-signing. He ordered each lawyer representing a foreclosing bank to submit an affidavit about their own investigation of their own case and the reliability of the documents they were presenting to the court. He ordered that no case could proceed until this affidavit, which would make the lawyer liable for sanctions and perjury if falsely issued, was filed with the court.

It was a great idea, though bank lawyers have resisted doing it and lower court judges have, self destructively in my opinion, been lax about enforcing it.

85% of Mortgage Transfers Were No Good

By: Thursday February 16, 2012 3:17 pm

That’s a pretty startling headline, isn’t it? Yet, that was the conclusion reached by study of 400 foreclosure files commissioned by San Francisco County assessor-recorder Phil Ting.

The 50 State Bankster Pardon Screws the Public Twice Over

By: Thursday February 9, 2012 2:55 pm

The robo-signing is the smoking gun that is the key to proving every other part of this criminal conspiracy, which is why the banks had to have robo-singing immunized.

So, homeowners are screwed.
