RAPID RESPONSE (Archives)...Daily Commentary on News of the Day
This is a new section.  It will offer fresh, quick reactions by myself to news and events of the day, day by day, in this rapid-fire world of ours.  Of course, as in military campaigns, a rapid response in one direction may occasionally have to be followed by a "strategic withdrawal" in another direction.  Charge that to "the fog of war", and to the necessary flexibility any mental or military campaign must maintain to be effective.  But the mission will always be the same: common sense, based upon facts and "real politick", supported by a visceral sense of Justice and a commitment to be pro-active.  That's all I promise.

What a spectacle in Washington and on Wall Street these days...culminating today in the greatest demonstration by John Q Public of abiding distrust in our political and business leaders.  And well deserved on the part of all of those participants, regardless of Party affiliation.  This is the result of at least a decade of inslder self-dealing with no regard for the public interest.  :It was not helped by the initial arrogant three-page proposal of Secretary Paulson and President Bush...literally a massive blank check to be drawn on the pockets of every American, and with any oversight to be prohibited by law.  It was certainly not helped by the ham-handed comments by Speaker Pelosi, just before the House vote was taken, blaming the Republicans for the whole mess.  It is fueled by a basic suspicion that the "crisis" is being hyped by "the usual suspects" in order to stampede a gigantic citizen bail-out of all the greedy and stupid participants in this spectacle.  And the greatest insult is the recurring comment that this would not have happened in other than an election year.  As always, a cynical - and too often accurate- reliance on the studied ignorance and apathy of that same John Q. Public.  Well, you finally got our attention - which is the only way that a democracy can function.  Will we remember that after this "30 second sound-bite"?

How the Democrats Created the Financial Crisis

 

Commentary by Kevin Hassett

 

Sept. 22 (Bloomberg) -- The financial crisis of the past year has provided a number of surprising twists and turns, and from Bear Stearns Cos. To American International Group Inc., ambiguity has been a big part of the story.

 

Why did Bear Stearns fail, and how does that relate to AIG? It all seems so complex.

 

But really, it isn't. Enough cards on this table have been turned over that the story is now clear. The economic history books will describe this episode in simple and understandable terms: Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac exploded, and many bystanders were injured in the blast, some fatally.

 

Fannie and Freddie did this by becoming a key enabler of the mortgage crisis. They fueled Wall Street's efforts to securitize subprime loans by becoming the primary customer of all AAA-rated subprime-mortgage pools. In addition, they held an enormous portfolio of mortgages themselves.

 

In the times that Fannie and Freddie couldn't make the market, they became the market. Over the years, it added up to an enormous obligation. As of last June, Fannie alone owned or guaranteed more than $388 billion in high-risk mortgage investments. Their large presence created an environment within which even mortgage-backed securities assembled by others could find a ready home.

 

The problem was that the trillions of dollars in play were only low-risk investments if real estate prices continued to rise. Once they began to fall, the entire house of cards came down with them.

 

Turning Point

 

Take away Fannie and Freddie, or regulate them more wisely, and it's hard to imagine how these highly liquid markets would ever have emerged. This whole mess would never have happened.

 

It is easy to identify the historical turning point that marked the beginning of the end.

 

Back in 2005, Fannie and Freddie were, after years of dominating Washington, on the ropes. They were enmeshed in accounting scandals that led to turnover at the top. At one telling moment in late 2004, captured in an article by my American Enterprise Institute colleague Peter Wallison, the Securities and Exchange Comiission's chief accountant told disgraced Fannie Mae chief Franklin Raines that Fannie's position on the relevant accounting issue was not even ``on the page'' of allowable interpretations.

 

Then legislative momentum emerged for an attempt to create a ``world-class regulator'' that would oversee the pair more like banks, imposing strict requirements on their ability to take excessive risks. Politicians who previously had associated themselves proudly with the two accounting miscreants were less eager to be associated with them. The time was ripe.

 

Greenspan's Warning

 

The clear gravity of the situation pushed the legislation forward. Some might say the current mess couldn't be foreseen, yet in 2005 Alan Greenspan told Congress how urgent it was for it to act in the clearest possible terms: If Fannie and Freddie ``continue to grow, continue to have the low capital that they have, continue to engage in the dynamic hedging of their portfolios, which they need to do for interest rate risk aversion, they potentially create ever-growing potential systemic risk down the road,'' he said. ``We are placing the total financial system of the future at a substantial risk.''

 

What happened next was extraordinary. For the first time in history, a serious Fannie and Freddie reform bill was passed by the Senate Banking Committee. The bill gave a regulator power to crack down, and would have required the companies to eliminate their investments in risky assets.

 

Different World

 

If that bill had become law, then the world today would be different. In 2005, 2006 and 2007, a blizzard of terrible mortgage paper fluttered out of the Fannie and Freddie clouds, burying many of our oldest and most venerable institutions. Without their checkbooks keeping the market liquid and buying up excess supply, the market would likely have not existed.

 

But the bill didn't become law, for a simple reason: Democrats opposed it on a party-line vote in the committee, signaling that this would be a partisan issue. Republicans, tied in knots by the tight Democratic opposition, couldn't even get the Senate to vote on the matter.

 

That such a reckless political stand could have been taken by the Democrats was obscene even then. Wallison wrote at the time: ``It is a classic case of socializing the risk while privatizing the profit. The Democrats and the few Republicans who oppose portfolio limitations could not possibly do so if their constituents understood what they were doing.''

 

Mounds of Materials

 

Now that the collapse has occurred, the roadblock built by Senate Democrats in 2005 is unforgivable. Many who opposed the bill doubtlessly did so for honorable reasons. Fannie and Freddie provided mounds of materials defending their practices. Perhaps some found their propaganda convincing.

 

But we now know that many of the senators who protected Fannie and Freddie, including Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Christopher Dodd, have received mind-boggling levels of financial support from them over the years.

 

Throughout his political career, Obama has gotten more than $125,000 in campaign contributions from employees and political action committees of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, second only to Dodd, the Senate Banking Committee chairman, who received more than $165,000.

 

Clinton, the 12th-ranked recipient of Fannie and Freddie PAC and employee contributions, has received more than $75,000 from the two enterprises and their employees. The private profit found its way back to the senators who killed the fix.

 

There has been a lot of talk about who is to blame for this crisis. A look back at the story of 2005 makes the answer pretty clear.

 

Oh, and there is one little footnote to the story that's worth keeping in mind while Democrats point fingers between now and Nov. 4: Senator John McCain was one of the three cosponsors of S.190, the bill that would have averted this mess.


SUNDAY through FRIDAY, September 21 through 26, 2008

In anticipation of the first Presidential debate, I offer herewith the following questions:
  1. There is a strong perception in the country that our Federal government has become disfunctional, and that our citizenry is deeply divided ...at least at the margins.  WHAT WILL YOU DO REVERSE THIS TREND?
  2. On Main Street it appears that all interests, national and international, are represented in Washington - except those of the the citizen.  WHAT WILL YOU DO TO REIN IN THE INFLUENCE AND INFLUENCE- BUYING OF WASHINGTON LOBBYISTS?

  6. DO YOU AGREE THAT THE ABORTION ISSUE IS TODAY COMPARABLE TO SLAVERY IN THE 19TH CENTURY AS THE CENTRAL ISSUE DIVIDING OUR CITIZENRY/  HOW WOULD YOU ADDRESS THAT PROBLEM AS PRESIDENT?
  7. It is generally agreed that  PUBLIC EDUCATION IN THIS COUNTRY HAS BECOME A FAILURE IN RECENT DECADES.  HOW WOULD YOU DEAL WITH THAT AS PRESIDENT?

  9. HOW DO YOU PROPOSE TO DEAL WITH THE MASSIVE OPIUM TRADE, WITH THE TRIBAL CHIEFS AND WITH THE TALIBAN IN AFGHANISTAN?
  10. WHAT COULD YOU DO AS PRESIDENT TO STOP THE ISLAMIFICATION OF PAKISTAN AND ITS INCREASINGLY ANTI-U.S. POSTURE?

Events of the last two weeks have been remarkable, even historic, precisely the times that require our focused attention to facts and to the most informed opinions available.  Failure to pay that attention is not only ignorance, but rank stupidity.  And by far the best source of such facts and opinion, properly separated from each other, continues to be the Wall Street Journal.  It has earned a reputation as "the newspaper of record", that description having been lost by the New York Times, opinionated on every page.  Check out the following editorials and articles which have appeared in the WSJ in the course of the last two weeks:
Meanwhile, the Democrats are totally panicked by the new McCain - Palin Presidential candicacy.  Witness the vitriol dripping from the mouths of all their spokesmen, from Obama way down to The Day's petulant Kenton Robinson (in The Day.com this week), mainly directed against Governor Sarah Palin.  At the heart of this: the self-centered and pro-abortion "females" who have taken over what can be called the "Women's Generation" of the last two decades cannot bear to chance the prospect of an actual "woman"...a principled and loving mother, wife and daughter - who is not only anti-abortion but who lives out that position with her Down Syndrome baby...finally earning her way into the White House.  What a display: Articulate, Arrogant, Asinine...and sickening.

Supreme Knight's Letter to Biden
Today, Children of All Races Are Denied Recognition as 'Persons'

WASHINGTON, D.C., SEPT. 19, 2008 (Zenit.org).- Here is an open letter addressed
to Senator Joe Biden, the Democratic candidate for vice president, from the
Supreme Knight of the Knights of Columbus, Carl Anderson.It was published today
as a full-page ad in various U.S. newspapers.

* * *

Dear Senator Biden:I write to you today as a fellow Catholic layman, on a
subject that has become a major topic of concern in this year's presidential
campaign.

The bishops who have taken public issue with your remarks on the Church's
historical position on abortion are far from alone. Senator Obama stressed your
Catholic identity repeatedly when he introduced you as his running mate, and so
your statements carry considerable weight, whether they are correct or not. You
now have a unique responsibility when you make public statements about Catholic
teaching.

On NBC's Meet the Press, you appealed to the 13th Century writings of St.
Thomas Aquinas to cast doubt on the consistent teaching of the Catholic Church
on abortion.

There are several problems with this.

First, Aquinas obviously had only a medieval understanding of biology, and thus
could only speculate about how an unborn child develops in the womb. I doubt
that there is any other area of public policy where you would appeal to a 13th
Century knowledge of biology as the basis for modern law.

Second, Aquinas' theological view is in any case entirely consistent with
the long history of Catholic Church teaching in this area, holding that abortion
is a grave sin to be avoided at any time during pregnancy.

This teaching dates all the way back to the Didache, written in the second
century. It is found in the writings of Tertullian, Jerome, Augustine and
Aquinas, and was reaffirmed by the Second Vatican Council, which described
abortion as "an unspeakable crime" and held that the right to life
must be protected from the "moment of conception." This consistent
teaching was restated most recently last month in the response of the U.S.
Conference of Catholic Bishops to remarks by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Statements that suggest that our Church has anything less than a consistent
teaching on abortion are not merely incorrect; they may lead Catholic women
facing crisis pregnancies to misunderstand the moral gravity of an abortion
decision.

Neither should a discussion about a medieval understanding of the first few
days or weeks of life be allowed to draw attention away from the remaining
portion of an unborn child's life. In those months, even ancient and
medieval doctors agreed that a child is developing in the womb.

And as you are well aware, Roe v. Wade allows for abortion at any point during
a pregnancy. While you voted for the ban on partial birth abortions, your
unconditional support for Roe is a de facto endorsement of permitting all other
late term abortions, and thus calls into question your appeal to Aquinas.

I recognize that you struggle with your conscience on the issue, and have said
that you accept the Church's teaching that life begins at conception - as a
matter of faith. But modern medical science leaves no doubt about the fact that
each person's life begins at conception. It is not a matter of personal
religious belief, but of science.

Finally, your unwillingness to bring your Catholic moral views into the public
policy arena on this issue alone is troubling.

There were several remarkable ironies in your first appearance as Senator
Obama's running mate on the steps of the old state capitol in Springfield,
Illinois.

His selection as the first black American to be the nominee of a major party
for president of the United States owes an incalculable debt to two movements
that were led by people whose religious convictions motivated them to confront
the moral evils of their day - the abolitionist movement of the 19th Century,
and the civil rights movement of the 20th Century.

Your rally in Springfield took place just a mile or so from the tomb of Abraham
Lincoln, who in April 1859 wrote these words in a letter to Henry Pierce:

"This is a world of compensations; and he who would be no slave, must
consent to have no slave. Those who deny freedom to others, deserve it not for
themselves; and, under a just God, cannot long retain it."

Lincoln fought slavery in the name of "a just God" without
embarrassment or apology. He confronted an America in which black Americans were
not considered "persons" under the law, and were thus not entitled to
fundamental Constitutional rights. Today, children of all races who are fully
viable and only minutes from being born are also denied recognition as
"persons" because of the Roe v. Wade regime that you so strongly
support. Lincoln's reasoning regarding slavery applies with equal force to
children who are minutes, hours or days away from birth.

The American founders began our great national quest for liberty by declaring
that we are all "created equal." It took nearly a century to transform
that bold statement into the letter of the law, and another century still to
make it a reality. The founders believed that we are "endowed by [our]
Creator with certain unalienable rights," and that first among these is
"life."

You have a choice: you can listen to your conscience and work to secure the
rights of the unborn to share in the fruits of our hard-won liberty, or you can
choose to turn your back on them.

On behalf of the 1.28 million members of the Knights of Columbus and their
families in the United States, I appeal to you, as a Catholic who acknowledges
that life begins at conception, to resolve to protect this unalienable right. I
would welcome the opportunity to discuss these issues personally with you in
greater detail during the weeks between now and November 4.

Respectfully,

Carl A. Anderson
Supreme Knight

History of Church Teaching on Abortion

US Bishops Issue Fact Sheet

WASHINGTON, D.C., SEPT. 4, 2008 (Zenit.org).- Here is a fact sheet issued by
the U.S. episcopal conference's Committee on Pro-Life Activities, which
clarifies the Church's constant teaching on abortion.

The fact sheet responds to a misrepresentation of Church teaching made in
remarks by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi during an Aug. 24 interview on
national TV.

* * *

The Catechism of the Catholic Church states: "Since the first century the
Church has affirmed the moral evil of every procured abortion. This teaching has
not changed and remains unchangeable. Direct abortion, that is to say, abortion
willed either as an end or a means, is gravely contrary to the moral law"
(No. 2271).

In response to those who say this teaching has changed or is of recent origin,
here are the facts:

-- From earliest times, Christians sharply distinguished themselves from
surrounding pagan cultures by rejecting abortion and infanticide. The earliest
widely used documents of Christian teaching and practice after the New Testament
in the 1st and 2nd centuries, the Didache (Teaching of the Twelve Apostles) and
Letter of Barnabas, condemned both practices, as did early regional and
particular Church councils.

-- To be sure, knowledge of human embryology was very limited until recent
times. Many Christian thinkers accepted the biological theories of their time,
based on the writings of Aristotle (4th century BC) and other philosophers.
Aristotle assumed a process was needed over time to turn the matter from a
woman's womb into a being that could receive a specifically human form or
soul. The active formative power for this process was thought to come entirely
from the man -- the existence of the human ovum (egg), like so much of basic
biology, was unknown.

-- However, such mistaken biological theories never changed the Church's
common conviction that abortion is gravely wrong at every stage. At the very
least, early abortion was seen as attacking a being with a human destiny, being
prepared by God to receive an immortal soul (cf. Jeremiah 1:5: "Before I
formed you in the womb, I knew you").

-- In the 5th century AD this rejection of abortion at every stage was affirmed
by the great bishop-theologian St. Augustine. He knew of theories about the
human soul not being present until some weeks into pregnancy. Because he used
the Greek Septuagint translation of the Old Testament, he also thought the
ancient Israelites had imposed a more severe penalty for accidentally causing a
miscarriage if the fetus was "fully formed" (Exodus 21: 22-23),
language not found in any known Hebrew version of this passage. But he also held
that human knowledge of biology was very limited, and he wisely warned against
misusing such theories to risk committing homicide. He added that God has the
power to make up all human deficiencies or lack of development in the
Resurrection, so we cannot assume that the earliest aborted children will be
excluded from enjoying eternal life with God.

-- In the 13th century, St. Thomas Aquinas made extensive use of
Aristotle's thought, including his theory that the rational human soul is
not present in the first few weeks of pregnancy. But he also rejected abortion
as gravely wrong at every stage, observing that it is a sin "against
nature" to reject God's gift of a new life.

-- During these centuries, theories derived from Aristotle and others
influenced the grading of penalties for abortion in Church law. Some canonical
penalties were more severe for a direct abortion after the stage when the human
soul was thought to be present. However, abortion at all stages continued to be
seen as a grave moral evil.

-- From the 13th to 19th centuries, some theologians speculated about rare and
difficult cases where they thought an abortion before "formation" or
"ensoulment" might be morally justified. But these theories were
discussed and then always rejected, as the Church refined and reaffirmed its
understanding of abortion as an intrinsically evil act that can never be morally
right.

-- In 1827, with the discovery of the human ovum, the mistaken biology of
Aristotle was discredited. Scientists increasingly understood that the union of
sperm and egg at conception produces a new living being that is distinct from
both mother and father. Modern genetics demonstrated that this individual is, at
the outset, distinctively human, with the inherent and active potential to
mature into a human fetus, infant, child and adult. From 1869 onward the
obsolete distinction between the "ensouled" and "unensouled"
fetus was permanently removed from canon law on abortion.

-- Secular laws against abortion were being reformed at the same time and in
the same way, based on secular medical experts' realization that "no
other doctrine appears to be consonant with reason or physiology but that which
admits the embryo to possess vitality from the very moment of conception"
(American Medical Association, Report on Criminal Abortion, 1871).

-- Thus modern science has not changed the Church's constant teaching
against abortion, but has underscored how important and reasonable it is, by
confirming that the life of each individual of the human species begins with the
earliest embryo.

-- Given the scientific fact that a human life begins at conception, the only
moral norm needed to understand the Church's opposition to abortion is the
principle that each and every human life has inherent dignity, and thus must be
treated with the respect due to a human person. This is the foundation for the
Church's social doctrine, including its teachings on war, the use of capital
punishment, euthanasia, health care, poverty and immigration. Conversely, to
claim that some live human beings do not deserve respect or should not be
treated as "persons" (based on changeable factors such as age,
condition, location, or lack of mental or physical abilities) is to deny the
very idea of inherent human rights. Such a claim undermines respect for the
lives of many vulnerable people before and after birth.

MONDAY through THURSDAY, September 1 through 4, 2008

To repeat my initial comment, made in the offering dated August 28-29, about John McCain's choice of Governor Sarah Palin as Republican Vice Presidential candidate: "A STROKE OF GENIUS."  During the third night of the Republican National Convention, she hit a grand slam home run.  She's a natural.  And she's of no less presidential timbre than that other then - unknown, Harry Truman.  Even Senator Joe Biden was subdued during his interview on the Today Show with Matt Lauer.  Of course, the panicked liberal crazies are spinning like tops.  And well they should.
