US to file lawsuits against major banks

Well this has been a more eventful evening than expected. Apparently the US is expected to file a massive wave of lawsuits on the biggest banks in the next few days. Not many details on this yet, but hopefully this means they finally start doing their jobs (although I doubt it).

The government initially created regulations that forced banks into making mortgage loans to "everyone". If any were denied, the banks were accused of "red lining" and the feds then stepped in to "re-indoctrinate" the offending bank on the fed mortgage policies. Then the government created Fannie and Freddie as the warehouse for bundled mortgages, which, for a while made it easier for the banks to write new mortgages, because they could always unload them on F&F. That was OK for a while until the dems loaded up the boards of F&F with political cronies. The next post* will give the who's who of Fannie with some added spice. The post after that will give a look at the cronies that ran Freddie.

To sum this up, the government is suing the banks for complying with the regulations they forced on the banks regarding mortgage applications and when the banks made the mortgages and forwarded them to the "quasi" government agencies that would guarantee the mortgages, the guarantors became a financial liability to the government.

(*Each of the names in the long list can be traced back to other entities i.e., corporations or government administrations/departments. This is one corrupt bunch of Esso Bees. Notice that both Freddie and Fannie had PACs to funnel money to campaigns. )
