Propaganda | Time for Deal on Banks’ Misconduct Since there were “Hardly any Victims”

Time for Deal on Banks’ Misconduct

IT’S BEEN months since the nation learned that some of America’s biggest banks engaged in dubious practices regarding loan modifications and foreclosures, including the now notorious “robo-signing” of what were supposed to be individually vetted documents. Yet in all that time, no one has produced evidence that large numbers of homeowners who were current on their mortgages were cast out of their homes because of bank misconduct. This looks like a case of spectacular wrongdoing with hardly any victims.

How do you handle a situation like that? For the 50 state attorneys general, the answer was: Use the specter of legal liability, however vague, to extract concessions from the banks. The banks, meanwhile, would prefer to make the whole embarrassing mess go away if they can do so for less than it would cost to litigate the principle of “no harm, no foul.”

And so the attorneys general — backed by the Obama administration — have been working on a settlement that would grant the banks legal immunity in return for reforms in their mortgage business and a large amount of cash to bail out underwater homeowners. The number under discussion reportedly is $20 billion from 14 large banks.

    This is absolute propoganda, by an author who is so far out of touch with the crimes committed by the banks. There are many, many victims. The public land records have been so totally destroyed, nearly 90% of homes true ownership is in doubt. That should be ignored? Many defaulters stopped paying their mortgages when they discovered that they never truly had the title transferred. Why would anyone pay a mortgage on a house they could never outright own, without a clouded title? I, for one, have been victimized by this practice. I did nothing wrong. The banks used MERS as their scheme for their fraudulent practices, and now I have to take them to court just to prove I have a claim to legal title. Yeah, no victims….do alot more research before you start shilling for the banks again.

    Who wrote this in the Washington Post? Begins with “By Editorial, Published: September 5.” I looked at three other articles and they were all “By Editorial.” Eventually I found an article that someone was willing to put a name to, something any journalist ought to do.

    “Yet in all that time, no one has produced evidence that large numbers of homeowners who were current on their mortgages were cast out of their homes because of bank misconduct. This looks like a case of spectacular wrongdoing with hardly any victims.” Big lie, the taxpayer has been forced to bailout the banks and Fannie/Freddie so far. The evidence regarding improper and fraudulent transfers of mortgages is hidden behind trust law and bank refusal to disclose – that is the whole point and we don’t yet know the extent of the victims because the mortgage transfers are hidden. Only investors that pool together and own a high percentage of a trust can force the trustees to let them look at the details of mortgage performance and transfers in and out of the trust. The problem is the investor can only look at chain of title in and out of the one specific trust they own. In most cases we know of, there was a complicated path of mortgage transfers before mortgages made it into a final trust (certainly some mortgages never made it into the trust properly). Only our government has authority to look into the entire chain of transfers to tell if a pattern of fraud occurred. Unfortunately, the attempted State Attorney General compromise has not bothered with an in depth investigation as the New York AG has made clear.

    Its sickening how the government wants to help these banks find a way to get off the hook. As soon as this settlement initiates, the banks with the very next breath are going to be off and running full speed doing the same things and counting on gov for for backing while the gov counts all their new found money. So where does this leave the people who lost homes or are upside down or have no equity left to live life. Where does this leave all the county registrars who are sweeping up a huge mess these arrogant pigs have created? Will the gov help the people caught up in hardship with the settlement monies? I’d like to think so.

      The only fair and just settlement for Homeowners caught up in this fraudclosure mess is full loan recissions with clear title back to the homeowner…..and all of the stolen homes given back to the people with monetary restitution….The homeowners are the innocent victims of this Global Scam by the ruling elite….Make Wall Street pay out of all of their ill gotten gains they have hidden away in overseas bankster accounts…..they don’t own our homes and I don’t give a damn what the Ruling elite claim they own….that is all a lie and a sham….This is all about Global Communism….by the ruling elite…and if WE THE PEOPLE don’t expose the truth about what this is all about and stop agreeing to what this tyranny has planned for mankind….life on this planet will be intolerable for all….

    The Washington Post is not a newspaper, it’s a corrupt tool of the banksters and corporate fraudsters who are using the government as a open season license to loot.
