When the bosses get denied any raises during improving times, kinda tells the rank and file it's time to look elsewhere for a future.
I'm just sayin...
Let's also rake a moment to ponder why NO former board of directors member of either FNMA or FMCC has come forward since the conservatorship was enacted in 2008 and complained about the government's actions. If all the stuff that happened was so terrible, why did they all CAVE and just agree to the takeovers?
Sniff. Sniff. Something doesn't pass the smell test.
Google CFIF... Council for Individual Freedom and enjoy the details about their agenda, the GOP candidates they donate money too and the issues they support. Read the filing on Myron Steele's court filing of his"friend of the court" brief; I posted a link to the entire 38 page PDF earlier today on investorshub (assuming it wasn't deleted for a second time as "off topic").
Perhaps former judge Myron Steele is more than just a "friend of the court" in his brief supporting Perry Capital's complaint against the Amendment 3 sweep?
Is there a (connect-the-dots) linkage between CFIF/Alexandria, VA, that organization's rumored support of conservative political causes and Republican candidates for elected office and the obvious "coincidence" of Obama Administration appointees being singularly named in the Perry Capital litigation?
I am only asking a question. One that, I believe, needs to be answered to avoid another Select Committee on Benghazi style witch hunt with largely political motivations underpinning an agenda that seeks an outcome more than a rule of law.
Why did the government allow the stock to trade? Simple. Because the government action not only saved the GSE, but also succeeded in conserving 20.1% of the common equity that was retained by shareholders.
Shorts are everywhere in the energy sector. I just tune out the worst trolls and laugh at most of the others.
After the recovery of the last few sessions, I think most of the laughter is over your juvenile predictions that fizzled out, again, as has been going on since 2013.
I keep saying it, over and over, and you guys keep ignoring it or burying my post with childish "bump" posts. Judge Lamberth ruled that HERA clearly established that FHFA had the power and legal authority to impose Amendment 3. The only way this can be overturned is via a successful appeal, a highly unlikely outcome after all this time. Or via a constitutional challenge to the law, itself, which is not part of the veritable suite of litigation filed by Perry, Ackman and Berkowitz. So how is it that you optimists expect to win in the end? The truth is, you are just part of the obstructionist delaying process. Other than that, you ain't even in the game any longer.
Judge Lamberth ruled on the complaints brought before the court by Perry Capital. None of those complaints challenged the legality of HERA, so of course he did not rule on that. What Lamberth said was that Amendment 3 was legal and proper based on HERA.
can only signal total, absolute desperation in the continuing campaign to find some scapegoat to explain away why the GSEs went into conservatorship. Bernanke's book is going to blow up a few heads over at Investors Unite, right?
Not according to Judge Lamberth. His opinion clearly stated the sweep was proper and fully legal as authorized by Congress under the Housing & Economic Recovery Act. It has been over one year since Perry Capital's appeals were filed and I don't see anybody celebrating with victory cigars. Do you? Why do you think the plaintiffs, et al, continue to badger for more documents? Don't you suppose its because after 7 years of slogging through this legal quagmire, they have NOTHING conclusive to bring in front of the court?
Bernanke's book is going to shine a bright light of clarity on he pristine motives of government officials in 2008 and the recovery period, since, that should make all Americans proud that despite its current dysfunction, there were committed bureaucrats from both sides of the aisle in both Executive and Congressional branches that put politics aside to SAVE our economy from total disaster and a generational depression.
The PATH bill under Mulvaney and Ellison's leadership is really just the Hensarling Bill with more amendments and zero support from Democrats. In a straight up and down vote, it would clear both houses but the Senate is hard to predict with rogues like Elizabeth Warren uncommitted to an announced position in anything I have seen. This is an interesting piece of legislation because it attacks the low income housing initiative, a Democratic-coveted area, but does so in a way that would potentially shut down both GSEs, a goal of many Democrats and Republicans alike.
I suspect Obama might not kill a passed bill with a veto of PATH, but who knows for sure? Thanks for raising the issue; this really is an important bill for FnF followers and investors.
This has drug on for too many years. It's now beyond just "old" and is moving at a snail's pace into the "stupid" category.
Well, navycmdr, I expect Bernanke will have LOTS to say about the GSEs and you can anticipate total support for the conservatorship enacted by the government. He has long supported the measures undertaken in an effort to save our country's economic system.
Then Amber is also navycmdr from investorshub. They even have (or had) the same photo in their ID;s.
Oh, Amber, you deleted your post so soon. Or should I say navycmdr you deleted your post so soon? Who cares? Same difference, right?
Why are you pumpers so afraid of standing up and being honest about your views or your identities? When you have to hide behind fake ID's and gamesmanship to conceal your motives you only lend cediility to those of us that think you are scumbgs for trying to orchestrate a grab bag for all of Fannie's cash.
LET GO OF MY FANNIE!
Hey, look, it's the Amber ID back, covering up for being navycmdr. Hey, navy, how does it feel to be one of the ultimate SNAFU's? You know. SITUATION NORMAL ALL F'd UP?
Just so everyone knows the caliber of navy's contributions... "Don't ask/Don't tell" was developed in his/her honor. Just don't drop the soap in the shower room.
Go back to investorshub, Ronald you loser!
