Apocalypse(s), Anyone?



  • I’m putting up a few items today that have to do with what appears (to me, at least) to be examples of Apocalypse. No, that’s not about what some “misguided and other doom and gloom” type people might say it is. It does NOT mean that the planet is going to explode, or implode, or get hit by meteors, Planet X, Nibiru, or a planet-sized sumo wrestler created from stray irradiation at Fukushima.

    So I’m first just posting what the derivation of “apocalypse” is.

    APOCALYPSE DERIVATION

    a·poc·a·lypse [uh-pok-uh-lips]

    1125–75; ME < LL apocalypsis < Gk apokálypsis revelation, equiv. to apokalýp ( tein ) to uncover, reveal (apo- apo- + kalýptein to cover, conceal) + -sis -sis [from Dictionary.com]

    I guess my favorite term to use is “unveiling”. You may have your own.

    Let the “Apocalypse(s) roll!

    Federal prosecutors sued Bank of America for $1 billion on Wednesday, alleging that the bank’s former Countrywide unit concocted a mortgage scheme it called the “Hustle” in order to sell thousands of fraudulent and otherwise defective mortgage loans to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

    “In order to increase the speed at which it originated and sold loans … Countrywide eliminated every single checkpoint on loan quality and compensated its employees solely based on the volume of loans originated,” the lawsuit, filed in Manhattan federal district court, alleges.

    This led to “rampant instances of fraud and other serious loan defects,” all while Countrywide was telling Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which buy up mortgages for resale, that it had strengthened its lending requirements.Both of those cases are pending.

    October 15th 2012

    The Irish People have initiated a process of suing the banks en-masse. We believe the bankers have broken the law by their practices, resulting in widespread ruin in Ireland as businesses close, mortgagors default, families are evicted from their homes, our young people are forced to emigrate and, tragically, many people turn to suicide.

    This situation has been caused by the banks, and we will take them to task through the courts to put right their wrongs.

    On October 15th over 100 cases were filed in the High Court in Dublin suing various mortgage providers.

    Debt is not the end, you have options.

    The mortgage giant called the scheme the “High Speed Swim Lane” or the “Hustle,” for short, according to the lawsuit.

    When the loans “predictably” defaulted, Fannie and Freddie, which in 2008 required a massive taxpayer bailout due in large part to the purchase of toxic mortgages, incurred more than $1 billion in losses, the lawsuit says.

    The mortgage scheme continued through 2009, well after Bank of America acquired Countrywide, according to the lawsuit.

    Bank of America did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    The lawsuit, which alleges violations of civil and not criminal law, comes on the heels of several other high-profile cases tied to the financial crisis that have been filed this month by federal and state law enforcement officials, who have taken fire for not aggressively pursuing those responsible for the mortgage crisis.

    Earlier this month, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman sued Bear Stearns, now a unit of JPMorgan Chase, accusing it of stuffing mortgage bonds with bad loans without informing investors of the risk.

    A week later, the Department of Justice sued Wells Fargo, claiming the bank lied about the quality of thousands of loans it certified for a federal insurance program. Both of those
