Superglued to stupid

Irony alert!

The foreclosure abuse settlement that was intended to speed relief to homeowners is ending as it began: with controversy and complaints that the program isn’t working.

On Tuesday, some of the first people to receive payouts under the $9.2 billion deal between federal regulators and the mortgage industry called into a government hotline to report that their bank would not cash their check, the Federal Reserve announced in a press release. Though the unspecified problem was resolved, the Federal Reserve noted, the episode is likely to further erode confidence in a program that has failed to deliver on almost every promise made by federal regulators. …

Earlier this month, the Government Accountability Office issued a scathing report on the review process, finding that regulators did not provide proper oversight and that some errors likely went undetected. Regulators also recently released new information suggesting that banks may have made errors in as many as 30 percent of all loans that qualified for a review, a figure far higher than previously reported.

Of course the ‘blame game’ has begun. No one knows who planted bombs in Boston. But, that doesn’t deter the media.

and this…

Barrett, who is now senior director at the Qatar International Academy for Security Studies (QIASS), said: “At the moment it looks more likely that it was a right-wing terrorist incident, rather than an al Qaeda attack because of the size of the devices.”

He added: “This happened on Patriots’ Day, it is also the day Americans are supposed to have their taxes in, and Boston is quite a symbolic city. These are all little indicators.”

Lawrence O’Donnell has a different take;

“There are new developments in the bombing investigation here in Boston, but that investigation could be moving faster were it not for the successful lobbying efforts of the National Rifle Association,” O’Donnell said at the top of his 10 p.m. program.

“The NRA’s effort to guarantee that America’s mass murderers are the best equipped mass murderers in the world is not limited to those who use automatic weapons and high capacity magazines. The NRA is also in the business of helping bombers get away with their crimes,”

Anyone who trusts the media to get it right has a lot to learn about the Fourth Estate. The Arrest that Never Was.

Max Baucus is not happy with HHS Sebelius….he’s not the only one. It’s been a “trainwreck” since it’s inception.

“I’m very concerned that not enough is being done so far–very concerned,” said Baucus. “Small businesses have no idea what to do, what to expect.”

Baucus appeared frustrated with Sebelius’s unresponsiveness in supplying the senator with information designed to educate and assist citizens with understanding the massively complex healthcare overhaul.

“You need data,” Baucus said to Sebelius. “Do you have any data? You’ve never given me data. You only give me concepts, frankly.”

The truth stays true….eyes open or shut

  1. A feminist learns a valuable lesson…..why the new feminism is destructive to our sons. Leftists always have to learn the hard way.

  3. Scalia never one to back down…reiterates why preferred treatment is against the Constitution.
    “Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia said Monday that the Voting Rights Act is an “embedded” form of “racial preferment,” according to a report in The Wall Street Journal.

    He later criticized United States Supreme Court precedents that expanded the number of minority groups, positing that “child abusers” could be a minority, but do not deserve special protection.

    Scalia’s remarks, made at the University of California Washington Center, echoed his description of the voting act as “racial entitlement” during arguments in Shelby County v. Holder in February.”

  4. Coincidences abound …..just sayin’

    “The head of a group accused of illegally taping private meetings of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s campaign visited the White House days before the group’s Twitter account began actively attacking the Kentucky Republican, according to White House visitors logs.

    White House logs and the Twitter feed of Shawn Reilly, one of two men at the heart of the McConnell wiretapping scandal, show he met with White House officials on Dec. 5, just days before his organization Progress Kentucky began a messaging blitzkrieg against the Republican leader.

    Reilly and Curtis Morrison are currently under investigation by the FBI for illicitly taping a campaign conversation between McConnell and a handful of his advisors”

  5. BO speaks….he promised the same thing about the Benghazi attack…

    At an interfaith service honoring the victims, the president sought to inspire a stricken city and comfort an unnerved nation, declaring that Boston “will run again.”

    “We may be momentarily knocked off our feet,” Obama said at the Roman Catholic Cathedral of the Holy Cross. “But we’ll pick ourselves up. We’ll keep going. We will finish the race.”

    The crowd applauded as Obama warned those who carried out the attack: “Yes, we will find you. And, yes, you will face justice.”

    • BO’s performance reminded me the head cheerleader at a pep rally. As he bounded up to the microphone, his first words were “Hello…Boston!” A shout out…really? The only thing missing were the t-shirts…

      • Looks like the “religion of peace” has struck again. Another “man caused disaster” by Islamic nutters from Chechnya…

        • Yes, and just look at how the media is tapdancing around the fact that here we have imported Moslem bombers. . .

  6. Yep, “innocent” and a “true angel”….

    The father of suspected Boston Marathon bomber called on his son today to give up peacefully, but warned the U.S. that if his son is killed “all hell will break loose.”

    Anzor Tsarnaev spoke to ABC News from his home in the Russian city of Makhachkala as Boston police carried out an intense dragnet for his son Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. ….
    The elder Tsarnaev insisted that his sons were innocent, but said he would appeal to his son to “surrender peacefully”

    “Give up. Give up. You have a bright future ahead of you. Come home to Russia,” the dad said.

    The father warned, however, “If they killed him, then all hell would break loose
    Maybe Russia should investigate his threats?

    • Yes, it certainly sounds like a threat to me!

  7. I wonder when all those media figures who were just praying for the bimber to be a white, male, Christian, teapartier will apologize to said white, male, Christian, teapartiers. . .I also suppose I will be waiting for hell to freeze over. . .

    • that is bomber–excuse the finger slip!!

    • Oh hell no!! All the ABC channels and the left will never do that. They’ll use some sort of distraction.

    • Waiting for 2012

      Wow! I didn’t realize that my Tea Party group had a Chechnya branch!

  8. did anyone else see the interview with the Aunt of the two *terrorists*?

    • Yup, I did. Also the Dad who claims they’re being framed…

      • I guess the shootout, the bomb throwing and police involvement was just a coincidence?

        • Waiting for 2012

          Hey, they were just innocent kids who were into home canning! You know someone in the lamestream media will spin it that way.

      • Dad also said there would be “hell to pay” if the 19 year old gets killed.
        What about the 8 year old kid his son killed?

  9. Waiting for 2012
    • Most hated man in America at the moment.
