There are now more than 3 million mortgage loans 60+ delinquent based on the Hope Now statistics.
The strategy ... is aimed at selling the most distressed hunks of failed banks to private-equity firms and other types of investors who may be more willing than traditional banks to take a flier on bad assets.
Why do we have Washington DC continuing to dissemble and BS while these firms implode one by one, taking down the FDIC's insurance fund - money that we should not lose as taxpayers if they would do their damn jobs!
Tens of thousands of unsafe or decaying bridges carrying 100 million drivers a day must wait for repairs because states are spending stimulus money on spans that are already in good shape or on easier projects like repaving roads.
Obama MUST have been born in Hawaii Being its part of the bill HR 593. How convenient it is for them to place this in the bill. This has NOT been settled! [ED] Recognizing and celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the entry of Hawaii into the Union as the 50th State. Whereas August 21, 2009, marks the 50th Anniversary of President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s signing of Proclamation 3309, which admitted Hawaii into the Union in compliance with the Hawaii Admission Act, enacted by the United States Congress on March 18, 1959 Whereas the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama, was born in Hawaii FYI: Resolutions are not laws. They are legally meaningless. A resolution is made when it’s declared Your Name Day in your hometown. This resolution does nothing to solve the issue of barry’s birthplace though it cleverly served to bring Republicans on board in an official capacity that could be wedged down the road.

We, as a country, cannot afford another 1000 page bill to go through congress without being read. Another 500 pages to go. I have highlighted a few of the items that are down right unconstitutional.
If the news media would report on the CONTENTS of the proposed federal health care takeover (see details below) it would die in a day. People would rise up, as they did over the recent illegal-alien amnesty attempt, and demand defeat. Instead, the media reports meaningless drivel, politicing, promises, compromises, party squabbles and leaves out the substance of this incredibly bad hostile takeover of your doctor's office, complete with end-your-life paperwork issued by bureaucrats, denial of service, strict rationing, cash penalties for selecting your own doctors or treatment. Gun-Rights Linkage: With this much total control over your medical and financial records, there's a very short step between automated analysis of your "fitness" to keep and bear arms, and the various prohibited-possessor lists the government is keeping and recommending. That's just my idle observation, the bill does not explicitly address it in any way. The lames
A representative for the DeKalb County CEO’s office identified the officers as Ryan Wright and C.M. Route.Two DeKalb County police officers have been placed on paid administrative leave after an investigation revealed they ran a background check on President Barack Obama.
Under the revamped structure, the White House Military Office, which reports to the office of the White House chief of staff, has assumed a more central role in setting up a temporary “shadow government” in a crisis.
The U.S. government will suspend the popular cash-for-clunkers program after less than four days in business, telling Congress that the plan would burn through its $950-million budget by midnight...
Dr. Taitz brings forward allegations that Barrack Obama is unlawfully holding the position as President of the United States. She currently is representing approx. 170 military members including commissioned officers in a lawsuit to force Barrack Obama to produce his birth certificate, proving that he is eligible to hold the position of President.
If Timothy Geithner is as bad at handling the economy as he is at picking bathroom tiles, he won’t need to sell his house.
A shift in authority has given military officials at the White House a bigger operational role in creating a backup government if the nation’s capital were “decapitated” by a terrorist attack or other calamity...
Just yesterday, I released Obama Media Machine Rushing to Derail Treason Charges and the column went viral within moments of its release. Take a few minutes to read my up-to-date report on the issue driving the Obama White House, congressional Marxists and their media minions insane! Within hours, every network news agency was in damage control mode, spinning their twisted set of false facts and missing evidence into a demonstration of unbridled outrage aimed at American citizens who simply want to know who the mystery messiah is, residing in their White House.
Should Michael J. Fox be put to death? Celebrities and death. Now there's a potent cocktail. Several parts fame, a few jiggers of Hollywood and a splash each for sports, business and journalism. Did I mention politics and government bureaucracy? Sorry. Without that essential element the mixture has no wallop. And a wallop this concoction surely will have, particularly if you believe actor Michael J. Fox has overstayed his welcome on the planet. Let's pour the dry ingredients of politics and government bureaucracy into the pitcher first, beginning with the politics of death and dying. Laws in America come into being because someone somewhere saw a problem, devised a would-be answer and then persuaded politicians to pass the law based on the philosophy and politics one group or another saw as underlying that answer. Need revenue? Raise taxes. Global warming? Shut down the coal plants. Dopey kids? Pay more to teachers. Everyone knows how this works.
Secrecy is endemic in all governments. It goes with the turf, especially if their leaders hope to hide illegal or immoral behavior, such as torture of foreign prisoners. Many Americans heaved a sigh of relief last January when President Barack Obama banned the torture of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
It made the administration look more humane than the Bush-Cheney team. But that is not the whole story.
Obama left unaddressed the possibility of torture in secret foreign prisons under our control as in Abu Ghraib in Iraq or Bagram in Afghanistan, not to mention the 'black sites" sponsored by our foreign clients in Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Israel, Thailand and other countries.
"The United States will not torture," Obama said in his directive. But he has been silent on the question of whether the U.S. would help others do the torturing.
Members of Congress knew a lot about U.S. torture practices. But Republica
From: Andy Martin for U. S. Senator firstname.lastname@example.org To: email@example.com Martin says Monday's admission by Hawai'i health officials that the state still maintains secret files on Obama makes asses out of Bill O'Reilly, CNN "researchers" and the CNN news managers that tried to intimidate Lou Dobbs. Hawai'i officials admitted (confessed?) on July 27th they still maintain secret files on Obama that have not been opened to the public. Martin has a pending lawsuit seeking public access to these historical archives in Hawai'i State custody. Martin says the latest disclosure by Hawai'i that the secret files still exist is going to explode the controversy and corrode support for Obama's presidency. Since filing his lawsuit in 2008, Martin has become a candidate for U. S. Senator in Illinois in 2010 More...
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Sunday shows that 29% of the nation’s voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty percent (40%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -11.
If President Barack Obama got anything indisputably right at his news conference this week, it was this: The American people don't trust the federal government.
That's a major reason he's having such a hard time selling his plan to overhaul the nation's health care. Even if they like Obama himself, people just don't think that the government can handle anything big, let alone something as personal to them as their health care.
Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. made blistering references to Russia’s failing economy, loss of face and a leadership that is “clinging to something in the past,”
The key point that was pressed by the authors was that the one SSN mostly used by Obama while he was in Illinois building his political career was one that records show belongs to an individual who is 119 years old.
That's a stopper, eh?
The person who may be responsible for more food-related illness and death than anyone in history has just been made the US food safety czar. This is no joke.
Congressional report demands probe, block of $8.5 billion in stimulus funds In a move to block designation of $8.5 billion in economic stimulus funds, Republicans on a House committee released a report calling for a criminal investigation of ACORN, the community activist group tied to numerous charges of voter fraud nationwide. The 88-page report asks whether ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, is intentionally structured as a criminal enterprise
BOSTON (AP) -- Many police officers across the country have a message for President Barack Obama: Get all the facts before criticizing one of our own. Obama's public criticism that Cambridge officers "acted stupidly" when they arrested black Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. could make it harder for police to work with people of color, some officers said Thursday
Perhaps most Americans deserve the federal government they have. A government that, contrary to the lofty rhetoric of Barack Obama, is pure politics as usual. A government that is as corrupted by moneyed interests as ever. A government that is as dysfunctional and inefficient as ever.
Are the people rejecting their saviour? Barack Obama’s approval rating has slipped to below that of George “Dubya” Bush at the same stage in his presidency and this is causing some concern among right-thinking (by which, of course, I mean left-thinking) people. This is by no means the death of the dream that began in January – approval ratings slide up and down erratically – but it is at least an early intimation of mortality.
Obama ground assault may be put on hold with the health care bill, but do not let your guard down. Harry Reid as we all know came out today announcing govt health care will be revisited after fall. I do not buy into it, this is just some breathing room for the liberals to regroup and restrategize. Obama has his foot solders stating to volunteer to come to your door and knock. This is exactly how Lennon came to power, check the archives. He promised the people “change” and “govt health care”, the people bought into it. That one worked out well,sighhhhhhh “Organizing for America”, the Obama foot solders are organizing a door-to-door effort to pass the Obama health care bill. To tune into their efforts go to:
