Foreclosure-Gate: 91% of BofA Securitized Mortgage Loans Were Fraudulent

The benchmark for documented mortgage originators' lies is getting higher and higher. First it was the Allstate lawsuit, finding massive fraud in most Countrywide/Bank of America loans, then it was quantified at 70% after Wells Fargo sued JPM's EMC division, now it is all the way up to 91% after a just released lawsuit by the bulk of the world's biggest insurance companies has been made public, in a fresh lawsuit again Bank of America/Countrywide over "Massive mortgage fraud." To wit, from the lawsuit: "In carrying out its review of the approximately 19,000 Countrywide loan files, MBIA found that 91% of the defaulted or delinquent loans in those securitizations contained material deviations from Countrywide’s underwriting guidelines. MBIA’s report showed that the loan applications frequently “(i) lack key documentation, such as verification of borrower assets or income; (ii) include an invalid or incomplete appraisal; (iii) demonstrate fraud by the borrower on the face of the application; or (iv) reflect that any of borrower income, FICO score, debt, DTI [debt-to-income,] or CLTV [combined loan-to-value] ratios, fails to meet stated Countrywide guidelines (without any permissible exception)." The plaintiff counsel is Bernstein Litowitz, which was made famous from the WorldCom litigation. We doubt they will settle for a few measily pennies on the dollar. As for the list of litigants, it is a veritable who's who of the insurance industry: Dexia Holdings, FSA Asset Management, New York Life iInsurance Company, The Mainstay Funds, Teachers Insurance & Annuity, TIAA-CREF Life Insurance, and College Retirement Equities Fund.

It is time to get the picture here.

Paper has value in 2 areas:
1. The value of the item it represents or is officially tied to;
2. The literal value of the pulp paper itself.

When cash money was backed by gold and silver, there was value besides the value of the paper. Now that it is not formally backed by anything of value, how do you put your finger on what it is worth?

Furthermore, since the Federal reserve Bank simply prints or authorizes the printing of cash money, and since they then loan it to the Government, how is it that they actually loan anything of value, since you can't really put your finger on what backs the money?!

The truth is that NOTHING backs cash money. Nothing was loaned to the Government except some cloth paper that has printing on both sides. And maybe not even that.

No loan, no national debt. No national debt, no need for IRS taxes to repay it. Also, no loan in the form of mortgages.

This whole idea of looking for the paper and the paper trail behind the mortgages, is a clever piece of propaganda designed to take the eyes of the people off the fact that there never has been any LEGAL LENDING INSTITUTION LOAN made since the cash money was taken off the gold and silver standard. And, if you really look at it, you might find that there never was any loan made since the Federal Reserve Bank took over the money systems of the nation back in the '30s.

This whole thing is a HUMONGOUSLY HUGE GIGANTIC SCAM to steal the labor of the people from them. And it is working quite well. The people seem to love it this way.
