The Ghost Cities Of China

January 21, 2011

Simply amazing.

& It’s not just one- or two- or three or four. Oh no.

I guess Americans will need some place to go when the economy collapses and unemployment reaches 80-90%.

The Central Bankers have a plan for us all.

In the beginning, they sold us out:

Calling out the Wanking Bankers

December 11, 2010

Yep, he nails it.

Who owns what?

December 1, 2010

My what a muddle we the people receive when we allow Wall St. and .gov to deceive.

Marcy Kaptur gets it. She’s really gotten up to speed on this issue.

It should be clear now that it is the banksters, not Al-Qaeda, are the biggest threat we have to our freedom and liberty.

“War is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small ‘inside’ group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes.” -Smedley Butler

Challenge the breach

October 25, 2010

implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing n. a general assumption of the law of contracts, that people will act in good faith and deal fairly without breaking their word, using shifty means to avoid obligations, or denying what the other party obviously understood. A lawsuit (or one of the causes of action in a lawsuit) based on the breach of this covenant is often brought when the other party has been claiming technical excuses for breaching the contract or using the specific words of the contract to refuse to perform when the surrounding circumstances or apparent understanding of the parties were to the contrary. Example: an employer fires a long-time employee without cause and says it can fire at whim because the employment contract states the employment is “at will.” However, the employee was encouraged to join the company on the basis of retirement plans and other conduct which led him/her to believe the job was permanent barring misconduct or financial downturn. Thus, there could be a breach of the implied covenant, since the surrounding circumstances implied that there would be career-long employment.

Parties cannot create a binding contract where either party has reason to know that the other party cannot perform.

Remember this if you should need to challenge your mortgage servicer in court.


Chris Whalen on Foreclosuregate

October 21, 2010

Chris Whalen:

“Every time there is a foreclosure someone stops paying their property taxes.”

“Barack Obama is walking in Herbert Hoover’s shoes. They’re making the same mistakes, almost unconsciously.”

“We’re going to have state moratoria the way we did in the ’30’s. The governors of those states are going to say ‘folks stay in your homes, keep paying your property taxes, default on your mortgage. This is Washington’s problem.'”

“MBS holders are calling their lawyers.”

“There may not in fact be any collateral underneath these securities.”

“Liquidate labor, liquidate stocks, liquidate farmers, liquidate real estate… it will purge the rottenness out of the system. High costs of living and high living will come down. People will work harder, live a more moral life. Values will be adjusted, and enterprising people will pick up from less competent people.” -advice of US Secretary Andrew Mellon gave to his President Herbert Hoover in 1931.

Karl Denninger Kicks More Ass

October 11, 2010

Fraud to cover up fraud. Hmmm, I guess we could call that “fraud squared.”

This is NOT about “Free Houses” or anything like that. It is about EMPTY BOXES and boxes full of dogcrap – MBS that hold nothing and assets that did not meet the credit quality requirements of the trusts but were transferred in anyway. The latter we know happened for a fact because it has been testified to in front of the FCIC and is exactly like selling someone a box of chocolates – but instead of chocolate, as you represented, you took piles of used dog food, formed it into chocolate shapes, then coated it with a thin veneer of chocolate so it looked and smelled like chocolate – right up until someone decided to take a bite of one.

These events sure look like black-letter crimes to me. Selling someone crap instead of chocolate, when you tell them it’s chocolate, is plain old-fashioned fraud. So is selling someone called a “Mortgage-backed security” without the mortgage backed part. In both cases, if and when this happened, you have people who took someone’s money – some $6 trillion of it over the “go-go” years – and sold them crap that was certified as Grade “AAA” chocolate. In each and every case where the sellers lied, they committed a serious crime.

Who got screwed? You. Your pension fund. Your annuity company – an insurance company that might not be able to pay 10 years down the road when you’re old, gray and frail.

You are the one who got screwed.

And if these clowns have their way, you’ll get screwed again.
