Moratorium leader Vanessa Fluker speaks at Oct. 21 BOA protest in Detroit. WW photo: Kris HamelThe nationalization of the U.S. mortgage industry by the federal government — a takeover implemented by the Democrats and Republicans to bail out Bank of America and other banks at the expense of homeowners and their communities — opens the door for activists to demand a reversal of these anti-people policies.The first step in stopping the massive, ongoing foreclosure crisis is to demand that President Barack Obama immediately declare a moratorium to stop all foreclosures and foreclosure-related evictions, and then move to implement a plan to reduce the amount owed on the 11.1 million homes currently underwater to reflect their real value.The Federal Housing Finance Agency was created by Congress through the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008. Under HERA, the FHFA, a government agency, assumed complete control over Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which at the time were quasi-government corporations that controlled approximately half of all mortgages.Since 2008, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have bought up trillions of dollars in failing mortgages from investor trusts. This operated as a silent bailout to the banks, with the banks being paid full value on inflated and predatory loans. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac then evicted the homeowners following foreclosures and dumped the homes for a fraction of their value, with taxpayers absorbing the losses.The cost to taxpayers for this practice thus far has been $180 billion, with the Congressional Budget Office estimating the ultimate bailout as $389 billion, while many private estimates are much higher.According to the FHFA’s 2012 report to Congress, since the federal takeover of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac was completed in September 2008, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have guaranteed three out of every four mortgages originated since that date. Mortgages guaranteed by the Federal Housing Authority make up the rest. A complete nationalization of the mortgage industry by the federal government has occurred.Nationalization gives banks big profitsThe federal government pays the banks that originate mortgage loans. Bank of America and other banks, which get zero-percent-interest loans from the Federal Reserve, charge borrowers 4 percent interest, and then pocket the difference when the loans are purchased by the federal government. This practice has resulted in the banks continuing to make record profits. (New York Times, Aug.8)The HERA mandated that the FHFA implement a plan to maximize assistance to homeowners to minimize foreclosures, considering the net present value to taxpayers. The Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 — also known as the $700 billion bank bailout bill — similarly mandated the U.S. Treasury to implement loan modification and refinancing programs to aid homeowners.Despite the federal takeover of mortgage loans, the Obama administration has relied on the banks to implement loan modification programs such as the Home Affordable Modification Program, which was trumpeted as a means of preventing up to 4 million foreclosures. With the banks being paid full value by the government on their inflated home loans, and making millions of dollars in fees on foreclosures, they have no incentive to work with homeowners.As a result, the modest modification programs announced by President Obama have been a failure, helping less than one-quarter the number of families who have applied. (New York Times, Aug. 19)By the FHFA’s own estimate, 11.1 million mortgage loans are underwater, meaning the mortgage amount owed is greater than the value of the home. The FHFA acknowledges that the reduction in house prices has resulted in a decline in housing wealth from 2005 to 2011 of $7 trillion. (FHFA Review of Options report)Despite this reality, FHFA director Edward DeMarco has refused to implement any programs that would reduce principal on mortgages. A July 31 New York Times article implied Demarco was “defying President Obama” by this refusal. DeMarco, however, is a temporary appointment of President Obama, who could fire and replace him.President has authority to take actionThe foreclosure crisis shows no signs of slowing. In addition to the 10.9 million foreclosures between 2007 and 2011, in a January speech William Dudley, president of the New York Federal Reserve, predicted an additional 3.6 million foreclosures for 2012-2013.Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac own approximately 180,000 vacant homes. The FHFA plans to sell these homes cheap to investors like Goldman Sachs — who helped create the foreclosure crisis — so they reap more profits as rental properties. (Real Estate Insider, Dec. 4)The struggle to stop this foreclosure epidemic, which is devastating the lives of millions in the U.S., involves several forms, from anti-eviction home defenses to the launching of a political movement that targets the federal government for bailing out the banks at the people’s expense.We must demand that President Obama immediately implement a three-year federal moratorium to halt all foreclosures and related evictions, and that he place a director over the FHFA who will begin reducing principal to market value on home mortgages for the benefit of homeowners and their families.The vacant homes held by the federal government must be used to house the homeless, not line the pockets of investors, and the government should implement a jobs program to rehabilitate these homes for people’s use.Goldberg is a people’s anti-foreclosure attorney in Detroit and a leading organizer of the Moratorium NOW!

He drove around at night and saw these self-styled men of God committing abuses and trafficking in drugs. In May 2012, MNLA members gave him a severe beating and “advised” him to refer to Azawad (“liberated” northern Mali) in more positive terms. After residents helped to free him, he continued to provide news coverage for the city he loves so much “Gao is home for me (…) everyone there is my family.” He was attacked again in August 2012, this time by MUJAO members, after reporting on the air that a protest had prevented the amputation of a youth’s hand for theft. He was beaten with rifle butts for two hours and left unconscious outside Gao’s hospital. After that, he finally fled to the safety of Bamako.

Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago There are many things to consider when homebuyers decide where to hunt for a new house. While issues such as affordability, taxes, and safety are all key factors, the ability to actually get around town can be a major concern as well. Living within walking distance isn’t possible for most people, so availability of public transportation can impact whether a market becomes a hotbed for home shoppers or cools off instead. Now Redfin has ranked the best American cities in terms of public transportation. Knowing which American cities earned the best Transit rating could prove another important factor to keep in mind for investors deciding where to plant their financial seeds.Redfin’s Transit Score rankings evaluate cities based on “how convenient they are to public transportation.” In other words, is public transportation an option for most jaunts around town? If so, is it actually convenient, or would a trip by bus require hiring an Uber to get to the station on the other side of town?New York tops Redfin’s list with a Transit Score of 85.3, up 1.2 points over 2016 and holding first place for the second year in a row. New York is practically synonymous with public transportation, so there’s definitely no surprise there. In fact, the order of the top 6 best cities for public transportation has remained unchanged since Redfin launched Transit Score in 2012. San Francisco holds second place with a score of 80.4, unchanged since 2016. Boston is third, down 1.8 points year-over-year with a Transit Score of 72.6. From there, the rest of the top 10 includes Washington, D.C. (68.5), Philadelphia (66.8), Chicago (65.0), Seattle (59.6), Minneapolis (57.6), Baltimore (57.2), and Honolulu (57.2).“Seattle is not only the coolest city in the country—we are now one of the most transit-friendly cities,” said Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan. “For our visitors, commuters, and residents, public transit is safe, affordable, and a vital component in making sure our city is accessible to all. With the opening of new light rail stations and one of the highest bus riderships in the country, Seattle is making significant strides towards becoming a world-class transit city.”Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell also weighed in on the results, saying, “Honolulu has been a public transportation city for many years now and the fact that our residents and visitors use TheBus an average of 214,000 trips every weekday is a testament to this fact. The new Transit Score ranking announced today by Redfin is proof that the nearly 2,000 workers who keep our bus system running strive for excellence each and every day, and our commitment to a transit system that covers all of O’ahu will only improve once our rail project begins service along our busiest and most populated corridor.”Raleigh, North Carolina saw the largest Transit Score increase for the year, up 6.3 points year-over-year to 28.9. Raleigh was also recently listed as one of the top housing rental investment markets for 2018 by Forbes and Local Market Monitor, coming in fourth behind Orlando, Florida; Provo-Orem, Utah; and Jacksonville, Florida.The rest of the top 5 cities that saw the largest yearly score increases include Phoenix, Arizona (+3.8); Aurora, Colorado (+3.5); Seattle, Washington (+2.6); and Atlanta, Georgia (+1.7).Redfin’s Transit Score algorithm calculates its scores by “summing the relative usefulness of public transit (bus, subway, light rail, ferry, etc.) routes near a given location. Usefulness is defined as the distance to the nearest stop on the route, the frequency of the route, and type of route (with twice as much weight given to heavy/light rail than to bus service). Transit Score is based on data published in General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS) format by transit agencies across the country.”You can read the full Redfin report by clicking here.

Secretary Carson wrote the Washington Post in response to an article discussing Carson’s decision to level a complaint against Facebook for “encouraging, enabling, and causing” unlawful discrimination through its targeted advertising system.“The April 1 editorial ‘Mr. Carson’s curious move’ was both right and wrong at the same time,” said Carson.“The editorial claimed that HUD is attempting to ‘unravel’ Obama-era fair housing rules. It is not,” Carson continued. “The editorial asserted that HUD is removing the words “inclusive” and “free from discrimination” from the agency’s mission. It is not. The editorial suggested my past statements on the role of government in our public life indicate a lack of commitment to fairness. They do not. HUD’s mission is to create strong, sustainable, inclusive communities that are free from discrimination.”According to Secretary Carson, housing discrimination is a real problem in the U.S, one that HUD is seeking to address.“The day I announced the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s discrimination charge against Facebook, I said, ‘Using a computer to limit a person’s housing choices can be just as discriminatory as slamming a door in someone’s face.’ I meant those words,” Secretary Carson told the Washington Post. ‘The editorial’s skepticism was based on some imaginary belief that I and the federal agency I lead seem “more interested in dismantling housing protections than ensuring they are respected.’ Those apprehensions were built on sand.”HUD claims Facebook enables advertisers to control which users receive housing-related ads based upon the recipient’s race, color, religion, sex, familial status, national origin, disability, and/or ZIP code. Additionally, the claim alleges that Facebook then invites advertisers to express unlawful preferences by offering discriminatory options, allowing them to effectively limit housing options for these protected classes under the guise of “targeted advertising.”“Facebook is discriminating against people based upon who they are and where they live,” said HUD Secretary Ben Carson in his announcement.Secretary Carson’s letter to the Washington Post can be found here.
