I think Barney Frank fragged himself.

In all seriousness, these statements by Frank are damning to him and the Democrats. It casts the financial crisis in a new light of responibility. Bill O'Reilly should be ready to blow a gasket over this on Monday--as should the rest of the country.

“Fannie Mae Chief Executive Officer Franklin Raines, two of his top underlings and select
individuals in the "green" movement were inventing a patented system to trade residential carbon credits.
Patent No. 6904336 was approved by the U.S. Patent and Trade Office on Nov. 7, 2006 --
the day after Democrats took control of Congress. Former Sen. John Sununu, R-N.H.,
criticized the award at the time, pointing out that it had "nothing to do with Fannie Mae's charter, nothing to do with making mortgages more affordable."

"It wasn't about mortgages. It was about greenbacks. The patent, which Fannie Mae confirmed it still owns with Cantor Fitzgerald subsidiary CO2e.com, gives the mortgage giant a lock on the fledgling carbon trading market, thus also giving it a major financial stake in the success of cap-and-trade legislation."

bookmark.

The question isn’t if Bill blows a gasket. The question is if Bill covers it at all.

Heh, kristinn thanks for cross-posting this on FR, this one is going to get juicy in the coming weeks.

I’ll leave it at that, Frank is on record along with all those Dems and Reps, and the businessmen who rent them out by the bill, and can be hoisted upon their own petards by the few media outlets not owned by the aforementioned businesses.

NOTHING can be damning to him and the RATs considering that they own the MSM.

Read this with your best Mr. McGoo voice in mind, and you’ve only scratched the surface of what an idiot he sound like.

“or you could leave that benefit in place and distribute it more fairly. That’s what we chose to do with the affordable housing fund.””

So basically, Barney Frank WAS responsible for forcing bad loans to be made.
Talk about a smoking gun....

I love it when Dems and their friends across the aisle, Rinos, get caught telling the truth for a moment. Great find!

I usually don’t see the words stunning and Barney Frank in the same sentence.
And isn’t it humorous that his parents put an “R” in both his names :>)

What is amazing is that there is a District so screwed up that they keep returning him to Congress.

I’m still amazed that people think that Democrats will be held accountable for anything. What planet are you from?
They’re going to label you a ‘homophobe’ and nothing you say,from that moment on, will be given any credibility .

Good find kristinn. But in the vastly empty collective mind of Dumbocrats and Obamanoids it won’t make any difference. I mean, this guy ran a homosexual bordello out of his house and the immoral Democrat Party didn’t care. The corrupt media in America runs interference and protects Democrats against all kinds of things that would be considered scandalous and career ending for conservative politicians.

I’m a Realtor in the Florida panhandle and have been doing business here for 15 years. My sellers wouldn’t bemoan a 10% loss at this point. It’s the 60 and 70% losses that are destroying them. When you paid $500,000 for a property in 2004 and can only sell it for $130,000 six years later, life is not good. The only consolation is in knowing a lot of other people are in the same boat.

Lord almighty...watching this video I can only think that the vampires have taken over this country..,and really much of the world.

Not all of it thank God.

November is a last chance to defang these zombies.
