Listen to Bush's words, transcript provided.  America is a Crime Scene.  Here's the spokesman launching the Housing Fraud unleashed by Wall Street, The Mortgage Brokers Association, Goldman Sachs, and the New York Fed, all helped by the Rubber Stamp Congress under George Bush.  And all still getting protections by Congress today.  Congress is on of the three legged stool.


This statement is not an exageration.

Listen to the words (transcript below)

Here's how the GOP Rubber Stamp Criminal Congress and Wall Street launched and waged Economic War on the Citizens of the United States.  THROW THIS INTO THE FACE OF THOSE WHO THINK ITS THE PEOPLES FAULT.  BUSH AND CONGRESS PUSHED HOMES, like a drug dealer pushes drugs.

The 10 Step: Choreography of the Housing Crisis, Collusion by All


Listen to Bush's words, here is a transcript:

Our taxes were given to developers as down payments for homes?
$440 Billion set aside by Fannie/Freddie to buy mortgages from brokers?
Decreased payments, over time, promised to low income families?

Really?  How did that work out in the end?  Fraudulently inflated home values while payments doubled over time.

Bush's words, key points transcribed:

His words:

Now that we are this end of the American Nightmare, you really HAVE to listen to what he says:

We must Increase home ownership

He addresses lower income families, minorities

We will Create American Dream Down Payment Fund using taxpayer money

Lack affordable housing units (where did that plan go?)

A tax credit to developers to build low income housing (did that happen?)

Simplify paperwork

Mel and Alfonso Jackson, will make closing easier

Federal government has to play an important role.

Need others.  The real estate industry.  The REI benefits.

Create a sustained commitment by the private sector.  (Well he did that)

Expand capital to buyers, provide education.  Not just a federal responsibility.

Challenged industry leaders to get after it, stay focused, to achieve the goal.

Achieve the goal of a more secure America.

Create 5.5 million new minority home owners.

America's home ownership challenge.

Fannie, Freddie

Increase their commitment to minority minorities $440,000,000,000 ($400 billion).

Thanks Leland and Franklin, conforms to their charters.

Freddie Mac Will purchase more loans made to minorities to

Freddie Mac will initiate 25 initiatives to eliminate home ownership barriers.

I understand that in this country there are too many people who say

"American dream?"  What American dream?"

We need to make sure, for the security of this country, that the dream is alive.

Those with poor credit will get a mortgage with an interest rate that automatically goes down after a period of consistent payments.

One more time, Bush declares that

Those with poor credit will get a mortgage with an interest that auto goes down after a period of consistent payments.

Bush had the bully pulpit,  and set the stage of desire for a home throughout the nation.

He certainly laid the foundation of hope for.....well, 5.5 million low income, minority families, as he stated above.

So, when you hear that the buyers were "Stupid" and should have known better, it's really important to review the history of what REALLY happened.

Setting aside the speculators and house flippers, you average Jon and Jane home buyers were hoodwinked, translated:  Defrauded

And, worse, they were hoodwinked into signing mortgages for homes worth 15%-30% less than true valuation because the brokers/lenders only worked with appraisers who would play along with their inflated valuations.

When property values increase dramaticaly in a short period it is always due to one thing:  Appraisal Fraud

2008:  Freddie Mac Releases the Home Valuation Code of Conduct

And how did those new rules work out?  Not so well:  Appraisal Fraud continued to spiral upward.

Here's some of their victims:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
