Yet she is treated as though somehow she'd suddenly stop making her mortgage payments if the bank gave her a new loan at 3 or 4 percent. The schoolteacher is looked at by the bank as if she was a future criminal.

I come from a generation where people were allowed to have a personal relationship with their bank. I used to be able to go down and talk to my local banker about a loan.

I'd tell him what I wanted to do and how much money I needed. The banker would say, "Mike, I've known you for 30 years. I know you're good for it."

Now there's no such thing as a personal relationship with your banker. The "local" bank is owned by a bunch of international mega-corporations and the management changes every 3 minutes.

Dodd-Frank has created a situation where only the large banks will survive. Small banks are essentially being outlawed. That means our ability to ever have a personal relationship with a banker is also being outlawed. And one bad result of that will be to create more people who become upside-down on their mortgages

I don't know if it's Dodd-Frank. Or if it's Barney Frank and Christopher Dodd themselves. Or if it's just the big bankers.

But the reality is, our banking system is completely screwed up when it comes to getting a home loan.

The problem used to be that the banks, in collusion with a federal government, made bad loans to bad people. That's what helped bring us the housing bubble and the inevitable bust that followed.

Today the problem is reversed. The banking system is so nuts it won't even allow banks to make good loans to good people. An example of our new backward banking system in action is what's happened to the daughter of a friend of mine.

She's a 29-year-old schoolteacher. When she was 24 she went out and bought herself a townhome that a bank had ended up owning after a foreclosure.

The bank was buried in the townhome for $560,000. The schoolteacher got the house for $360,000 and put $110,000 down. Her interest rate five years ago was 6¾ percent.

Today the townhome is worth more than what the teacher paid for it and now she wants to refinance and get a low-interest loan. But she's just been told by Big Bank that she doesn't qualify for a 3 or 4 percent loan. They've even told her she shouldn't have been able to qualify for her original loan.

Think about this: Here is a teacher who has never missed a house payment. She has her monthly mortgage payment taken out of her bank account automatically. She's never missed paying her taxes. She's never missed paying her homeowner's dues.

Yet she is treated as though somehow she'd suddenly stop making her mortgage payments if the bank gave her a new loan at 3 or 4 percent. The schoolteacher is looked at by the bank as if she was a future criminal.

I come from a generation where people were allowed to have a personal relationship with their bank. I used to be able to go down and talk to my local banker about a loan.

I'd tell him what I wanted to do and how much money I needed. The banker would say, "Mike, I've known you for 30 years. I know you're good for it."

Transparency: GOP Introduces 'Midnight Regulations' Ban in Congress

Back in 2008, Candidate Obama ran for president on a platform of change, including promises of government transparency, the likes of which we'd never seen before. Of course, countless scandals -- from Solyndra to Fast and Furious -- prove that we're still not seeing that transparency. However, several Republican lawmakers are out to force the president to meet his own standards. They're introducing legislation that would bar the president from passing any "midnight resolutions," orders lame duck presidents issue in the last minutes of executive office.

The Midnight Rule Relief Act, H.R. 4607, follows an April letter from House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) that urged President Obama not to pass any "midnight regulations."

"We believe that issuing a raft of midnight regulations would be inconsistent with your January 2009 commitment to transparency and accountability in the rulemaking process," they wrote.

H.R. 4607 goes much further than a request, by preventing "significant" regulations from being promulgated from the day after the November election through Jan. 20, Obama's last day in office should he lose.

Republican supporters of the bill said an outgoing president should not have the authority to issue these rules, which the bill defines as those having an impact on the economy of $100 million or more.

Given President Obama's proclivity for dodging Congress when enacting his agenda -- think "recess" appointments and airstrikes on Libya -- the legislation addresses a legitimate concern. Should he lose his reelection bid this November, it's likely that he'll do all he can to fulfill his policy goals before leaving office. Hey, remember "We Can't Wait?" He's said he's willing to act unilaterally before:

One Saturday last fall, President Obama interrupted a White House strategy meeting to raise an issue not on the agenda. He declared, aides recalled, that the administration needed to more aggressively use executive power to govern in the face of Congressional obstructionism.

“We had been attempting to highlight the inability of Congress to do anything,” recalled William M. Daley, who was the White House chief of staff at the time. “The president expressed frustration, saying we have got to scour everything and push the envelope in finding things we can do on our own.”

Mr. Obama has emphasized the fact that he is bypassing lawmakers. When he announced a cut in refinancing fees for federally insured mortgages last month, for example, he said: “If Congress refuses to act, I’ve said that I’ll continue to do everything in my power to act without them.”

The lawmakers behind the bill -- Reid Ribble (R-WI) in the House and Ron Johnson (R-WI) in the Senate -- recognize the danger of a politician with lots of power and nothing to lose. Thus, they seek to nip in the bud any far-reaching regulations that Obama may wish to pass before he leaves office.

"Significant regulatory actions should be proposed and put in place before Election Day," Johnson said. "Too often, Presidents wait until after the voters have spoken to impose new and costly rules — rules that the people ought to know about before going to the polls.

"This bill ensures that except for some specific circumstance, new major regulations will not be imposed once a President has become a lame duck," he added.

"This is a straightforward good-government reform," [fellow cosponsor Darrell] Issa said. "Any president who has lost his mandate to govern should not be permitted to hatch costly new regulatory schemes on his way out the door."

Of course, it remains to be seen whether Democrats will be receptive to the bill -- and signs point to no -- but regardless, it's a good reform that tackles a controversial problem. Whether Republican or Democrat, presidents of every stripe have taken advantage of their last vestiges of power in ways controversial. A law like this would prevent any chief executive, from the right or the left, from abusing the last of their power. It's hard to argue that this is a hyperpartisan, straight-anti-Obama bill when the Democrats might consider the kinds of GOP midnight regulations it could prevent.

Hypocrites.

Of course, the GOP didn't want to do this when their man was in the White House.

Since Jimmy Carter, every President has complained about midnight regulations and, four or eight years later, every President has issued them. On a percentage basis, George Bush senior holds the record: his Administration issued a greater proportion of its rules during the midnight period—generally defined as the last three months in office—than any other President’s. Clinton's not much better.

And then, there's GWB.

While I partially agree with this proposal, the reality is that we elect our POTUS for 4 years, not 3 years and 10 months. When elected POTUS, one does have a mandate to govern for 4 whole years. And it works that way for both parties when in power.

Probably because the current legislators from both parties are a bunch of idiots that don't get anything done?

Do you agree that the POTUS is elected for 4 years and not 3 years plus 10 months? Do you agree that Senators are elected for 6 years and not 5 years plus 10 months? How about Representatives? 2 years or just 1 year plus 10 months?

My understanding is that all spending bills must come from Congress. Therefore any of the measures Obama passes in this way must be funded, the answer then is surely NOT to pass the bill funding ANY of these things and they will die on the vine.

Even it the billed passed and was signed into law [for show], Obama would ignore it and do the best he could in his lame duck period to further destroy and harm the economy and the people.

I thought Romney could just issue his own executive order to rescind the whole slew of executive orders Obama has and will spew out because he doesn't have the time or inclination to follow the legislative process as laid out in the constitution.

I am also expecting to see Romney nullify the multitude of pre-emptive pardons Obama will surely issue for himself, Holder and other members of his criminal regime who will be deposed on Nov 06.

WAIT! I think I hear an Executive Order being drafted right now... Just in case H.R. 4607 gets passed, Obozo has to have Plan B ready to put into action.


Can't have that damn Congress shoring up Obozo's POWER!

And no doubt he'll actually sign it, you guessed it, at MIDNIGHT!

Regretfully, Hicks only sees the rational, positive aspects of this bill that would protect the populace from the ruling class. Of course, the ruling class only cares about, as Obama typifies, continuing "to do everything in my power to act without them.” Working together to form concensus and when concensus isn't possible to not pursue a proposal never enters the minds of activists like Obama, who imagines himself empowered to solve all issues he wants to meddle in. He acts like an absolute ruler--Hello King George!!!--a truly disrespectful appraoch to the US Constitution. Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

After President Wilson had his stroke, Mrs. Wilson ran the White House for almost two years; President Roosevelt had 4 terms. The XXII Amendment states "No person shall be elected to the office of President more than twice . . . " while the XXV Amendment states "whenever the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that he is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, and until he transmits to them a written declaration to the contrary, such powers and duties shall be discharged by the Vice President." Both Amendments had to be created to overcome just such problems. Remember Clinton's saxophone?

Kate Hicks writes: “Of course, countless scandals -- from Solyndra to Fast and Furious -- prove that we're still not seeing that transparency.”

That’s because dear leader is a pathological liar. He could fulfill his promise of “transparency” tomorrow by Executive Order if he wanted to, but he’s no different than every other corrupt politician who forgets his promises and the people who voted for him once he’s in office.

Unless you’re one of his cronies or “bundlers”, of course. He takes good care of them.

Just follow the money, and eventually you’ll find the snake.

Many people refer to the President and DWS as pathological liars but I don't think so. I think they're calculating and their lies are just that...calculations. They want a certain effect and the lies are to create the conditions that will bring their goals to a successful end.

Blasted fool Democrats are willing to give the office of Pres all sorts of powers because "their guy" is in office.

STUPID! STUPID! STUPID! STUPID!

Doing so means the next person in office is also going to have that power, and the next, and the next. Eventually whoever is in that office is going to be worse than their worst nightmare. Then what?

The war is over?

By Cal Thomas














http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | "The war on terror is over," or so claims an unnamed seniorState Department official, as reported by National Journal's Michael Hirsh in his recent article "The Post al-Qaida Era."

Really? Well, if the war is over, I must have missed the peace treaty signing ceremony. I also haven't noticed a decline in incendiary rhetoric, or the disarmament -- or at least laying down of arms -- that usually accompanies the end of war. Does this mean we can do away with full-body scanners and TSA pat-downs?

Those who believe the war against radical Islamists is over never really believed we were fighting one. They have been in denial from the start. Each time they have been proven wrong -- the land for peace formula between Israel and her enemies is just one example among many -- they have simply moved on to the next level of denial. Now they have reached rock bottom with nowhere else to go and are telling us we can live with Islamism.

Hirsh references Reuel Marc Gerecht, senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, a nonpartisan institution focusing on national security and foreign policy, whom he calls one of the "smarter hardliners on the Right." Hirsh says Gerecht is among an emerging group of policymakers and analysts coming to realize that "the Arab world may find another route to democracy -- through Islamism."

This is preposterous. It is like saying the route to women's rights is through patriarchy. War is peace. George Orwell lives! Radical Islamists have made it perfectly clear they have no interest in joining the democratic process. They are at war. They are at war with the West. No amount of "make-nice" will stop them from trying to destroy Western infidels, which they consider all proponents of democracy to be.

Gerecht's kind of thinking is beyond self-delusional. It is suicidal. Any hope that the Arab Spring and the Middle East elections that result will make any difference in the way radical Islamists deal with or perceive the West is misplaced. Elections are meaningless without a framework guaranteeing individual rights. History is full of examples where elections brought to power dictators who then either gamed the system so their re-election was guaranteed or made sure there were no more elections.

Closer to reality is a report in the April 15 London Sunday Times. Reporter Hala Jaber writes fromCairo about the forthcoming Egyptian elections: "Voters fear the imposition of the veil and a harsh penal code if radicals win the election."

Ask the radical Islamic cleric Abu Qatada if he thinks the war against the West, which is the proper way of framing this conflict, is over. British Home Secretary Theresa May has possibly blown an opportunity to deport Qatada because of a bureaucratic snafu over a deadline for his appeal to the European Court of Human Rights. Now there is a good chance that Qataba, described by a judge in Spain as Osama bin Laden's right-hand man in Europe, could be released from prison instead of being deported to Jordan as planned.

Just because the leadership of al-Qaida has been killed, imprisoned or forced to run, does not mean that the fighting stops. In fact, though the "war on terror" may be over as a concept, White Housespokesman Tommy Vietor assured Michael Hirsh, the war against al-Qaida rages on. But the war is much broader than al-Qaida. Terrorism flows from a belief system and worldview that will not be crushed because a few al-Qaida leaders are gone.

The secular left refuses to understand this. Terrorism is not the only tool in the arsenal of radical Islamists. Infiltration, Islamic schools, the building of mosques in the midst of the "Great Satan," the running of Muslim candidates for public office, the demands for more "rights" and civil liberties, while Islamists deny such things to the nations they dominate -- all of this and more proves the war by whatever name one wishes to call it is not over. In fact, it is just beginning.

Radical Islamists are attempting to unify the Muslim world under Sharia law and other dictates of the extremist wing of the religion. If they succeed, they will most assuredly redouble their efforts to eliminate Israel and come after America.

The war on terror continues. We need to fight it to win it

More DWS: Americans Really Don't Care About the Budget "Process"

Apr 25, 2012 12:05 PM EST


Our buddy Debbie Wasserman Schultz appeared on Fox News last night, an occasion that typically guarantees some sort of embarrassing meltdown. True to form, when anchor Bret Baier pressed the DNC chair on why Senate Democrats haven't produced a budget in nearly 1,100 days, Wasserman Schultz informed Baier that Americans aren't "interested in" these types of "process" questions (the key bit starts at the two minute mark):


[iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="243" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/qykK2jTQFUY" width="420"][/iframe]


Baier does an admirable job of puncturing her dissembling, but I'd like to offer an even more comprehensive rebuttal:


(1) Even if Americans don't care about "process" questions (and their general revulsion at the backroom Obamacare dealings suggest that they sometimes do), the lawcares about process. And the law requires both houses of Congress to introduce and pass budgets every year. Senate Democrats have shirked this obligation for three consecutive budget cycles.

(2) DWS says the "Romney-Ryan budget" -- see my post from yesterday -- "ends Medicare as we know it." For the umpteenth time, basic math ends Medicare as we know it. Just this week, the program's trustees put out a report confirming that Medicare's core fund will become insolvent in 2024. That's 12 years from today. If we do nothing. President Obama's non-solution is to set a government cap on Medicare spending, and enforce it through an unelected rationing panel of 15 government bureaucrats. (Although he's cynically backtracking on the first scheduled round of cuts, using a shameless maneuver to push the pain until after the upcoming election). The bipartisan Paul Ryan (R) -Ron Wyden (D) Medicare reform plan enshrined in the House-passed budget takes a patient-centered approach, premised on choice and competition. "Medicare as we know it" is changing. Period. The question is, how do we go about it. Republicans have a plan. Democrats openly admit they have no solutions to the long-term debt bomb they're refusing to defuse, but they're scrambling to assail the GOP alternative. Also, she keeps talking about the "pain" the Republican plan would inflict on Americans. You know what's painful? National insolvency. Just ask the Greeks choking on tear gas at their latest street riot.

(3) Wasserman Schultz holds up the president's budget as a serious alternative to the House-passed blueprint. Is she aware that Obama's last two budgets have been defeated 511-0 in Congress, a number that includes scores of Democrat 'no' votes? So in what possible sense is Obama's surreally awful budget a viable plan?

(4)As Breitbart's Joel Pollak pointed out on Twitter last night, DWS tries to have it both ways. When pressed on Senate Democrats' egregious and unlawful inaction, she says she's a member of the House and therefore doesn't represent Harry Reid. She's a House member, yes, but she's also the Democratic National Committee Chairwoman. She speaks for her entire party; that'sliterally(to borrow one of her favorite words) her job.

(5) Her fanciful "solution" to this budget mess is for both parties to "work together." Baier astutely notes that a conference committee -- in which disparate bills from each chamber are merged into one -- would serve that purpose, but the lack of a Democrat budget makes such a task impossible. DWS blithely ignores this point, and claims that the GOP simply refuses to work with President Obama. Aside from this not being true, Democratswere the ones who excluded Republicans from the Stimulus discussion and from the drafting process of their exceedingly unpopular healthcare monstrosity.


Debbie Wasserman Schultz is incapable of telling the truth because the truth reveals that her party to be an irresponsible failure. It's a tough job, I realize-- which renders me forever grateful that President Obama hand-selected such a capable and charming individual to apply lipstick to the Democrat policy pig.

Stop and think folks what makes a liberal Democrat.

First, you spend 12 years in an educational institution that is run by socialists, then you spend 4 or more years in an institution of higher learning run by anti God, anti Constitution, anti American educators that teach you that life owes you.
When you graduate, you have been brain washed to believe that trees have souls, animals are equal to people, there's no God, the government is your nanny.

Democrats believe in the free lunch at someone else expense, their women don't believe in equality, they believe in superiority, they believe that mankind is advancing in the social order despite the evidence to the contrary.

Is there hope for a liberal, not without at least an ounce of...

The hallmark of Leftards is that everything is subject to "emotional validation." For instance, when the Democrats came up with the tin-foil-hat theory of the "October Surprise" at the beginning of the first Reagan term, where somehow (even though a Democrat was President) George H. W. Bush hopped an SR-71 and flew secretly to Iran to arrange for them to release the American hostages being held there, only AFTER Reagan's election, had to be investigated because "people are horrified that it might be true." Not "it might be true" but "people are AFRAID it might be true."

George Zimmerman is in jail, primarily because people were "angry" that he was "getting away with murder," so a Democrat prosecutor figured out a way around that "equality

under the law" B.S. And Obama says we don't DARE repeal Obamacare because "the American people will be so angry"...even if it is bad law, and unconstitutional to boot.

So, that's what DWS is pulling here: "People don't care. People get bored. People roll their eyes. People get impatient. People get exasperated," so the Constitutional requirement that Congress submit a budget - which takes each house doing so, then reconciliation - can be overlooked because of the emotions of the people.

Oh, and BTW: It doesn't work the other way. For instance, the TEA Party folks sure are fed up with the **** that's going on with this regime...but that doesn't count, because they're, you know, racist or something.

Conservatives only care about the budget when democrats are in power... deficits and debt apparently were no big deal when Reagan and Bush both broke records during their respective administrations.

Here I ill help you with the preemptive answers you knuckleheads will come up with. Yeah but Obama's record and numbers are way more now (plug in numbers), or here we go blaming Bush again. Doesn't take away from the fact that you did not give a rats a ss about it when the numbers for their time were astronomical. So feign your outrage now.

Debbie's goal here as with the Dems in the Senate is to get the American people to ignore the fact that there is not budget, has been no budget, won't be a budget and all they care about is unchecked spending.

Yup. To a Democrat, no budget = unlimited spending. So, not passing a budget is preferable.

Seems like she used to be at least attractive - so sticking a sock in her mouth would work from a weird, twisted BDSM point of view, I guess.

But her looks have gone downhill FAST!!!! I swear, just one year ago she looked a h*ll of a lot better than this!
