I realize that “crime” is a strong term to apply to the “family” of Democrats named herein, but, what else can be said of people such as these who manage, however gleefully and cunningly with smiles and booming voices, to wrangle trillions of dollars from other people based upon a declaration of alarming needs of their own determination after first creating the conditions that caused the needs themselves? Call it what it is: crime, by a family of individuals sharing a goal, participating in a variety of processes toward that goal, profiting in those processes and in and by that shared goal.
Of all sources to present the awful truth about one of those family members — Rahm Emanuel — THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE provides a series of articles with hardcore facts: what Emanuel manipulated and how and how these escapades by Emanuel set the loopey foundation for the housing and financial horrors that developed afterward.
Worse, that structural foundation is still loopey, the horrors are present and ongoing — “still in development” — and the Democrats (Emanuel, Obama and others among them) continue to do a garbage-dance-of-denial as to their involvement in these horrors.
In fact, they are the “greedy” (just use any one of Barack Obama’s pejoratives he uses to refer to anyone, except himself and peers, for this problem, such as “bankers” or “Wall Street” or “Bush” or “previous Administration,” etc. — any of them actually apply to Barack Obama, Rahm Emanuel, the Democratic Party and various donors to and participants with all of those), this “crime family” is them though they are trying to convince others as to who is responsible, explaining only that this various nefarious activity (not theirs!) is why it is that the U.S.A. now needs to (dire circumstances! Laughs on Jay Leno! Dire, emergency, terrible! Laughter and applause!) jello-down into Obamity Land amidst the Pelosi Swamp.
No, it’s Barack Obama who launched the process of “skin color coercion upon financial institutions” with his lawsuit years ago against Citi in Chicago, which Citi folded before and began the home-mortgage scams, at Obama’s demands, based upon dark-skin-color and not based upon credit worthiness — Obama rewarded jello-legged Citi for being jello-legged with an active spot on his [and Emanuel’s] Administration, among other choice but crooked cups.
And this is the process that began the “housing/financial meltdown” or so it’s been called since: Barack Obama, while working with the dubious organization, ACORN, sued Citibank in Chicago, Illinois, to demand they begin providing home mortgage loans to people not based upon credit-worthiness (their ability to repay a loan):
…and he won because Citibank caved rather than experience “bad publicity” in Chicago and nationwide due to the “racial” characteristics of the Barack Obama lawsuit — Obama cited “Black” people as deserving of loans irregardless of credit worthiness.
Which began the terrible tumble — call it a fall off a roof with mortal complications because that’s what it was and remains — in the housing-financial markets, with financial groups attempting to regroup losses by reselling derivatives after suffering increasing defaults on the quirky, financially-irrational lending practices that Barack Obama ushered in by leverage-of-the-threat-of-lawsuits.
His entire assumption appears to have been — as the Democrats’ is and continues to be — that the American taxpayers will and have to subsidize or be held responsible for other people’s mortgages (if and as the people considered are of a certain racial type that’s not White, not Conservative, not professional and not Democrats), or else. When lenders lose money on mortgages, they try to make-up their losses by other strategies; the Left, however, coerces losses based upon the assumption that they will have the American taxpayers to drain afterward: the Left never assumes their responsibility for their part in scams, crimes and coercive financial gains because they rely on emotional pejoratives to blame their accusers and emotional agitation of Democrats accordingly: it’s rarely Conservatives who “riot” (if ever, actually).
It is a surprise to read that THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE would be printing these candid reports on the “activities” of Rahm Emanuel, but, to their credit, they are doing so.
One of those allegedly asleep-at-the-switch board members was Chicago’s Rahm Emanuel — now chief of staff to President Barack Obama — who made at least $320,000 for a 14-month stint at Freddie Mac that required little effort.
As gatekeeper to Obama, Emanuel now plays a critical role in addressing the nation’s mortgage woes and fulfilling the administration’s pledge to impose responsibility on the financial world.
Emanuel’s Freddie Mac involvement has been a prominent point on his political résumé, and his healthy payday from the firm has been no secret either. What is less known, however, is how little he apparently did for his money and how he benefited from the kind of cozy ties between Washington and Wall Street that have fueled the nation’s current economic mess.
Though just 49, Emanuel is a veteran Democratic strategist and fundraiser who served three terms in the U.S. House after helping elect Mayor Richard Daley and former President Bill Clinton. The Freddie Mac money was a small piece of the $16 million he made in a three-year interlude as an investment banker a decade ago…(read the full article).
