“First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak for me.”
First they came for Fannie and Freddie, and I did not speak out because……? Because you are not a shareholder? Because you rely on access to the U.S< government halls of power? Because you are afraid that our government may retaliate against you? Because you don't believe those who sacrificed their lives for our freedom deserve our respect? Because you are to preoccupied trying to build your own little pile of gold and glitter? That is the question anyone who is sitting by in silent complicity as our government continues their attempt to seize Fannie and Freddie must answer honestly.Let me assure you that although our government and their many allies in the financial media would love for you to believe otherwise, we are growing very close to victory.When Judge Sweeney allowed the severely incriminating evidence that has been gathered during pre-trial discovery with multiple other related cases that marked the beginning of the end for our government's scheme. The damming documents and testimony are now spreading to Judges all over the country.Nowhere is this as important right now than in the "Perry Appeal". This new found evidence proves beyond any shred of doubt that the Administrative record that our government submitted initially was nothing more than a cleverly fabricated attempt to deceive.Now that the truth is much more widely known it is just a matter of a time before a courageous judge or judges recognize the truth and puts a stop to this simmering National disgrace before it boils over and forever destroys Americas credibility.Oral arguments are scheduled for 4/15/16 in the Perry Appeal, and I hope it is open to the public.
Both Parties Are Subverting The Foundation Of American Society
Simply put what has transpired was both political parties have sought to sidestep the law in an attempt to get their stamp on Americas housing finance system.To understand this better let’s look at what each party would do if they had they controlled both bodies of congress and the white house or if they could simply wave a wand over the issue.
The Republicans have always despised the GSEs and would love nothing more than to see the private market step in and do what the GSEs do.They hate everything about the GSEs including the mandates that force banks to lend equally to all Americans. For these reasons, they have sat by and watched as President Obama has kept Fannie and Freddie on a death march by siphoning every penny of their profits into the U.S Treasury. Their primary hope is that a Republican wins the Presidency this year, and they will get a chance to finish what Bush and Paulson started.Senator Grassley feigned concern at one point but quickly ran back into his cave like a true American coward.
So why would President Obama and other key Democrats go along with this risky path? To understand this, you need to know what would be the Democrats dream if they could wave a wand over the issue.The more liberal wing of the Democratic party including President Obama and Liz Warren have always wanted the GSEs nationalized. They love the idea that the taxpayers are currently getting all of the profits. Actually, the current state of Fannie and Freddie is a Utopian state for many Democrats. They get the benefits that the GSEs provide, and taxpayers get all of the profit which is only fair they believe because it is the taxpayer backing that enables them to do what they do.
Now without going on and on about the many failures and myths these two beliefs offer, the reality is that either of these paths could be pursued, but legislation would have to be passed to achieve them.They know that this divided Congress stands zero chance of passing housing finance reforms. Herein lies the crux of the problem: Both parties are subverting the political process in an attempt to achieve their ideological goals. To them, the end justifies the means. Unfortunately for them, this is the United States of America, and we do not allow our government to seize two major private companies in the pursuit of ideological goals.It really is that simple.
Our Forum Terrifies Our Government
I am humbled by the incredible traffic and support this blog has achieved even in my absence. This proves the timely quote: “The truth is like a lion; you don’t have to defend it. Let it loose; it will defend itself.”Your actions over the last few weeks have proven that you truly have not placed your faith in me ahead of the truth and for that Words cannot express the gratitude I feel.
As you have witnessed recently, we are very feared and they have tried again and again to fracture our movement; their last attempt was the most radical and like all of the others, they have failed again. Unfortunately, I cannot comment on the recent events that lead to our silence, but I am sure that those of you closely following understand.
They know that this forum has documented their lies in great detail. Unlike the American media, we have held them accountable at every turn. Although many others have tried and continue to try, none has been even remotely as successful as we all have been here. One of the primary reasons for this is that we have placed our faith in the truth and trust that our nation will not allow those in our government to subvert the founding principles of our democracy.
We must be more vigilant than ever as we enter the final phase of this campaign. Our government is more desperate than ever, and we must exercise even greater degrees of caution as they have demonstrated that they will go to any length to try and silence us.
Keep the Faith!
