Fannie Mae Kindled Tea Party

The Tea Party movement has been accused of being run by racists and bigots and sexists and homophobes. Its members have been accused of being anti-science who don’t care if the world is burning to the ground.

The charges are false. In fact, when one looks at those making them  and then follows the money, well, it is more often than not welcome to the Tea Party.

The spark for the movement was obviously Obamacare, the disaster that was predicted and is now coming to pass.

But there was plenty of kindling and maybe the biggest pile of it was the housing bust sparked by the misue of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

Fannie Mae is the Federal National Mortgage Association which is a financial services corporation created by the U.S. Congress in 1938 to expand the secondary mortgage market by securitizing mortgages. The nickname comes from its acronym (FNMA)

Freddie Mac is Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (FHLMC) It is also a “government-sponsored enterprise” and was created in 1970. Freddie Mac  buys mortgages on the secondary market, pools them, and sells them as a mortgage-backed security to investors on the open market.

In 1992, the Housing and Community Development Act was passed and this mandated Fannie Mae to provide mortgages to low-income people who would otherwise be considered bad credit risks, which were then pooled by Freddie Mac.

Under the Clinton administration, these risky loans boomed. Now, Fannie  and Freddie while “government sponsored” are publicly traded, although both are now over the counter as they were delisted by the New York Stock Exchange in 2010.  Their officers are not government employees.

The expanded loans made it look like they were just doing great when it was doing anything but.

Harold Raines was the CEO of Fannie Mae. He made about $90 million in salary and bonuses. J. Timothy Howard was CFO and Leanne G. Spencer was controller. They also made money.

In December 2006,  U.S. regulators  filed suit against them seeking to recoup $115 million in bonus payments along with $100 million in penalties. In 2012, the suit was dropped. They got away with it.

Pretty good heist, right?

The bad loans at Fannie  and Freddie cost the U.S. taxpayers between  $224 and $360 billion in bailouts.

Bernie Madoff was a piker to these guys and he’s going to die in prison.

And that is just one more reason why there is a Tea Party and people are angry and suspicious of those running government.

Scott Wagner Letter Explains What Needs Doing

Today is Election Day. Sen. Scott Wagner (R-28) who is running for a full term after winning a special election, March 18, has sent the following letter to his constituents. It’s worth being read by all who care about this state and the nation.

Scott Wagner Letter Explains What Needs Doing

By Scott Wagner

I am writing to the voters of the 28th Pennsylvania State Senate District regarding the upcoming election . . ., Tuesday, November 4th.

I made a decision over a year ago to run for the State Senate position that I currently hold.

I made that decision because I was fed up with the status quo.

Without going into details, most people know that I am in the Pennsylvania State Senate because of unusual circumstances.

I was fed up with a government that was making what I love to do harder and harder each year.

What I love to do is start up and build businesses that create jobs and employ people.

Let me repeat – create jobs and employ people.

Pennsylvania has a lot of opportunities and it also has many issues.

Let’s talk about some of the issues.

The number #1 issue in the 28th Senate District is school taxes.

A significant driver of the ever increasing school taxes is a state pension system that is vastly underfunded and facing a $47 Billion Dollar shortfall.

During my short period of seven months in the Pennsylvania State Senate it is crystal clear to me that the public sector unions have complete control of Harrisburg and are blocking pension reform, school tax elimination, liquor privatization, and prevailing wage mandates on school districts to name a few.

Pennsylvania needs government reform and it needs it quickly.

Pennsylvania does not have a revenue problem, it has a spending problem.

I knew this fact before I went to Harrisburg and I now see it first-hand.

My opponent will say we need jobs.

Here is the real issue. We have a skilled labor shortage. South Central Pennsylvania has approximately 3500 job opening for skilled workers.

By skilled workers I am referring to truck drivers, mechanics, welders, industrial electricians, HVAC technicians, plumbers and machine operators to name a few.

This past May, Pennsylvania colleges graduated 12,000 teachers with 3,000 positions available.

York County needs to change its junior and senior high school education programs to include education for the trades.

Pennsylvania has a prescription drug epidemic and that has created a heroin crisis.

Pennsylvania is not a “right to work” state.

Pennsylvania is ranked 34th in the nation as having a percentage of its workers unionized.

Pennsylvania has major competition with southern “right to work” states.

We have a lot of work to do to make Pennsylvania more competitive against other states.

I started my business career over thirty-five years ago; it has taken a lot of hard work and risk to get to where I am today.

Success doesn’t just happen; I have had many failures also and have turned those failures into learning experiences.

Having served in the Senate for seven months it is crystal clear to me that there is not a single person in the house or senate that has my extensive business experience and knowledge of how the real world operates.

In my short time in the senate my name has been in newspapers continuously, or I am on TV and you can find me on the internet because I am not a status quo person.

I ask questions, continuously looking for ways to improve things, and as a result I am seen as a disruptor.

I love when someone says “we have always done it this way”.

People have said, “Wagner’s style won’t work in Harrisburg – he is abrasive and he is outspoken”.

Let me be clear – I am not a status quo person.

I intend to be a Senator who will be disruptive.

I will break the rules with professionalism, a strategy, style, and class.

I already have a career.

I am a leader, I am a strategist, I am a visionary and I am a team builder.

And most important – I am not, and will not be owned by lobbyists, special interest groups, senate leadership, and a corrupt system.

I have pledged to serve two four-year terms in the Pennsylvania State Senate.

It is not my goal to become a career politician. I am seen as a very dangerous person to a lot of people who live on the system in Harrisburg.

We have a lot of things in Pennsylvania that are simply outdated and broken, and need fixed quickly.

If you want a Senator who will go to Harrisburg to make Pennsylvania a better, more competitive state so Pennsylvanians have good sustaining jobs and Pennsylvania is a better place to live and prosper, then I ask for your vote on November 4th.

Steve Lonegan Dollar Fix Plan

We  missed the Oct.  24 meeting of the Delaware County (Pa) Patriots at which New Jersey’s Steve Lonegan was the main speaker.

We have been told  he gave an  incisive explanation as to what is wrong with the dollar and the fiscal mistakes the nation is making, and provided intelligent solutions as to how to fix the problem..

We are told that what Lonegan said are pretty well summed up at his site

The dollar certainly needs fixing.

Pileggi Union Ties Lead To Senate Rebellion

Pileggi Union Ties Lead To Senate Rebellion Scott Wagner             Pileggi Union Ties Lead To Senate Rebellion Dominic Pileggi

Scott Wagner vs Dominic Pileggi

Anti-establishment Republican Scott Wagner has picked up a supporter in his rebellion against Pennsylvania Senate Majority Leader Dominic Pileggi of the 9th District which includes large parts of Delaware and Chester counties.

Don White of the 41st District has also declared that Pileggi should step down from the post.

Pileggi has been majority leader since 2006, a rather remarkable feat since he only entered the Senate in 2002.

Wagner crushed party-pick Ron Miller in a special election, March 18, to fill the 28th District seat that was vacated by Mike Waugh for a suspiciously sweet job to direct the Pennsylvania Farm Show complex.

On Sept. 30, Wagner posted on his website a manifesto as to why reforms aren’t getting done in Harrisburg.

The roadblock standing in the way of getting any real reforms passed is our Republican Senate Majority Leader Dominic Pileggi,” he said.

“There have been countless times since I have taken office, where at least two-thirds of our Republican Caucus members wanted legislation to go to the floor for an up or down vote,” Wagner said. “Senator Pileggi has continually refused to do so.”

Wagner has concluded that it is because Pileggi is tied to closely to labor.

“After reviewing Senator Pileggi’s Political Action Committee campaign finance reports, I have concluded that Senator Pileggi is heavily influenced by public sector unions and private trade unions,” Wagner said. “In fact, on May 28, 2014 the Philadelphia Inquirer published an article referencing the Electricians’ Union “Local 98’s $100,000 Club” which lists Senator Pileggi as having received $175,000. Senator Pileggi is 9th on the list behind President Obama and seven other Democrats. Local 98 is just one of many unions that Senator Pileggi has taken a significant amount of money from.”

Wagner said that “after spending considerable time considering how best to address” the issue he sent a letter to Pileggi on Sept. 29 “informing him of my conclusion that it is not in the best interest of Pennsylvanians for him to continue as Senate Majority Leader.”

The letter can be found here.

White, yesterday, Oct. 10, sent his own letter to Pileggi in which he says “You have succeeded in fracturing our caucus and bastardizing the committee process to promote an unknown agenda that is debilitating to our caucus and, more importantly, our Commonwealth.

“To be clear, I will not support your re-election as Majority Leader should you choose to run.”

White  accused Pileggi of being the deciding vote in the Appropriations Committee in favor of an an amendment drafted by “extremely liberal environmental group Penn Future to House Bill 2354, and failing to advance House Bill 1243 which passed the House overwhelmingly with bipartisan support to prevent harassment of gun owners by local governments unwilling to respect state law.

White also noted that Pileggi squelched SB7 that would limit the rate of spending growth in Pennsylvania to the rate of inflation and did the same to paycheck protection in June.

White was specifically angry about Pileggi’s actions regarding health insurance.

“On an issue important to me personally, and as a favor to Big Pharmacy, you engineered an end run around the committee process in an attempt to enact a health insurance mandate that is terribly written and simply unworkable, without a proper vetting or debate of the issue,” he said.

White’s letter can be found here

Pileggi Union Ties Lead To Senate Rebellion



Cruz Spanks Franken

Forty-nine Democrats in the U.S. Senate led by former Saturday Night Live comedy writer Al Franken of Minnesota have proposed a Constitutional amendment that would declare that First Amendment speech protection does not apply to corporations.

These brilliant (that’s sarcasm) thinkers in seeking to restrict speech just for those of whom they disapprove failed to account for the reality that just about all our news and entertainment outlets are corporations.

Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz spanks Franken et al as he points out that those who write and produce Saturday Night Live — which is the property of NBC which is owned by Philadelphia-based Comcast CORPORATION — could conceivably face jail time for their satirical sketches if this Democrat amendment should pass.

He does it in a rather presidential fashion too.

Here is the C-Span clip
