    Bank Bailout Boosts Barney's Butt's Boston Buddies
    ..............."Lets Get Barney "

    Barney Frank is the "Teflon Congressman. He was a leading OPPONENT of regulating of Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac (see video below) and was able to transfer the entire blame on President Bush. He never had to answer why he fought so hard to squash regulation, was it the tons of campaign cash Frank got from Freddie and Fannie OR the fact that Frank's former lover was the former director of housing initiatives for Fannie Mae.

    The July 3, 1998, Reliable Source column in The Washington Post reported Frank, who is openly gay, had a relationship with Herb Moses, an executive for the now-government controlled Fannie Mae. The column revealed the two had split up at the time but also said Frank was referring to Moses as his “spouse.” Another Washington Post report said Frank called Moses his “lover” and that the two were “still friends” after the breakup.

    Of course no one calls Barney on it even though, according to his words they should:

    Frank has argued that family life “should be fair game for campaign discussion,” wrote the Associated Press on Sept. 2. The comment was in reference to GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin and her pregnant daughter. “They’re the ones that made an issue of her family,” the Massachusetts Democrat said to the AP.

    Well Barney you made an Issue of it too, shouldn't we be finding out if you got your direction from Moses (and I am not talking about the Ten Commandments)

    Frank aggressively fought reform efforts by the Bush administration. He told The New York Times on Sept. 11, 2003, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac’s problems were “exaggerated,” ok so maybe he was a bit off, since the twin headed Fannie/Freddie has sacked the American Public with costs estimated to be in the hundreds of billions

    “These two entities – Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac – are not facing any kind of financial crisis,” Frank Opined to the Times. “The more people exaggerate these problems, the more pressure there is on these companies, the less we will see in terms of affordable housing.”

    The 10/8/03 Washington Post reported that Frank opposed giving the Bush administration the approval rights over banking business activities that “could pose risk to the taxpayers.” He worried the Treasury Department “would sacrifice activities that are good for consumers in the name of lowering the companies’ market risks.”

    Frank Got away with ALL of that. No wonder why he acts as if nothing can touch him, or that anyone who disagrees with him is biased, stupid or just wrong.

    Now the Powerful Chairman of the House Banking Committee is at it again. As part of the release of the Banking Bailout Dollars, he directed funds to a local Massachusetts bank CITED BY REGULATORS FOR THEIR EXCESSES (they bought the CEO a Porsche). Even worse the Bank has been cited for UNSOUND Business Practices:


    Frank, head of the powerful House Financial Services Committee, acknowledged that last fall he inserted into the government’s $700 billion Troubled Assets Relief Program bill specific language to help OneUnited, New England’s only black-owned bank. He also said he contacted someone at the Treasury Department about OneUnited’s application for emergency TARP funds, though he insisted he never asked Treasury to bend any rules on behalf of OneUnited.


    “I believe it would have been a very big mistake to put the only black bank out of business,” Frank said in an interview.

    Barney Frank "Flips Out" During An Interview AGAIN !!

    If Congressmen got a report card, Barney Frank's would say "does not play nice in the sandbox with the other children"

    To understand the congressman you must understand that there are two types of people, those who agree with him and and those who distort the facts and are too stupid to understand the truth.

    One of my favorite TV moments of 2008 was his battle with Bill O' Reilly, today's conversation with Chris Cuomo wasn't as "loud" but just as Barney Frank Nasty:

    On ABC, Dem Barney Frank Rages at 'Distortions' of Chris Cuomo


    "Good Morning America" news anchor Chris Cuomo on Tuesday actually challenged liberal House member Barney Frank over how Congress has spent the bailout money. At one point, after the host implored Frank to think of the American taxpayers, the irritated congressman commanded, "I'm sorry, sir, but- I'm sorry, if you keep interrupting we cannot have a coherent conversation." Frank would later rage over Cuomo's "distortions."

    The ABC News anchor kicked off the interview by observing, "You Democrats say you're gung ho, talking numbers in this stimulus plan." He then skeptically queried, "But, in light of all the spending that's been done already with the questionable results, what gives you the confidence that you can pass this?" Now, it should be pointed out that Cuomo often seemed to be pressing the Democratic congressman from the left. Regarding those Americans who took out loans for more than they could pay back, he asked, "Why didn't you look out for the little guy and make sure that first package, instead of $270 billion to financial institutions, went to the people holding those mortgages?" The host continued, "Went to the working men and women? Why didn't you do that first?"

    However, Cuomo should be given credit for not allowing Frank to simply blame the Bush administration. After one such attempt, the journalist attacked, "Mr. Chairman, your title is Chairman of the House Financial Committee. I mean, certainly, this isn't just about you looking to the administration. You have a role in this also."

    Towards the end of the segment, Cuomo again provoked the ire of Frank. Speaking of the American taxpayer, he questioned, "You seem to be saying that you're powerless in this. Why should they have confidence in the new administration?

    " Frank angrily shot back, "No, I'm not saying that. Excuse me. I'm sorry, this is terribly distorted!

    I didn't say I was powerless." The back and forth continued and, as Cuomo attempted to end the interview, the powerful Democrat complained that "responding to your distortions takes some time."

    I believe it would have been a very big mistake to put the only black bank out of business,” Frank said in an interview.

    "Now we are into saving faulty banks based on the color of their owners skin ,sweet stuff !"

    Frank, head of the powerful House Financial Services Committee, acknowledged that last fall he inserted into the government’s $700 billion Troubled Assets Relief Program bill specific language to help OneUnited, New England’s only black-owned bank.

    He also said he contacted someone at the Treasury Department about OneUnited’s application for emergency TARP funds, though he insisted he never asked Treasury to bend any rules on behalf of OneUnited.

    OneUnited was financially reeling from the federal government’s takeover of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, both of which had their shares wiped out by the government action. OneUnited owned substantial shares in the two mortgage giants, Frank said....

    ..But OneUnited was also facing regulatory scrutiny last fall from other government agencies, which later slapped a cease-and-desist order on OneUnited due to “unsafe and unsound banking practices.”
    Regulators also complained of “excessive” executive pay at OneUnited - including a Porsche for use by CEO Kevin Cohee.... Barney Keller, a spokesman for the Massachusetts Republican Party, said he wasn’t surprised by Frank’s action.


    “Rep. Frank’s motives on the committee have always been politics first, people second, which is exactly how we got ourselves into this mess in the first place,” Keller said. “I hope he at least gets to test-drive the Porsche.” Source:Barney Frank helped controversial black-owned bank gain money


    These truths need to be posted weekly on billboards all across the fruited plains.
    .................................................. .....

    Frank is a repulsive human being who needs his daily ego fix by calling all others ignorant, all of the time. He preys on the insecure, playing them like a Strad. That's why his district, filled with insecure academics and their opposites, the truly ignorant, fall on their swords and vote over and over for him. He keeps them in their rattled places by reminding them of their stupidity.

    Barney, taking care of friends is a noble gesture, BUT DO IT WITH YOUR OWN MONEY!! Being a leading player in the collapse of our banking system has not hurt Frank, neither has his apparent conflict of interests, I doubt very much whether this will hurt him either. And that is a shame, because the man is a menace to the US economy.
