Roll back: Repealing the worst of Dodd-Frank
New Hampshire Union-Leader, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 3/12/2018 5:17:57 AM

After the housing bubble burst, Democrats found themselves in control of Congress and the White House. So they crafted legislation they claimed would ensure this problem never happened again. In passing the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, Democrats created a whole new set of problems. By imposing a massive load of new regulations on banks, supposedly for the purpose of cracking down on risky behavior by those "too big to fail," Congress made life much harder on small and mid-sized banks. Contrary to popular belief, large corporations love regulations. They have the resources to keep lawyers and compliance departments on

It´s about time. The left caused the melt down in the first place. Remember Franklin Raines? Cook the books at Fanny & Freddie then retire with a $90mm performance bonus. How about Acorn and Barney Frank along with other nefarious characters blackmailing banks to accept sub-prime loans they would never take on voluntarily. "Everyone has the right to own a home"

Then after all that, the same people who caused the whole problem become the heroes to the rescue with Dodd Frank to make sure it wont happen again. Of course Dodd Frank only caused more damage.

Is there something wrong about this scenario?

Dodd-Frank is do do that can be hung on the neck of E. Warren. She is a staunch defender of something the dems created that is SO BAD that, in the time of Trump #Resistence, 17 dem Senators joined in unwinding it. With the CFPB leadership having been flushed, Warren doesn´t have much positive to talk about.

Well, she is a native American, right? Oh, but the tribes don´t think so and she refuses to take a public DNA Test (you can be pretty sure she flunked a secret one). Too bad.

Maybe she can go back to Harvard and set up her teepee there. They let her do it once and bragged about their "native American" faculty member. But she never took advantage of her unproven "heritage", right? Ooops.

Well, she certainly is in the mold of BO; a Leftist of dubious accomplishment, a big mouth, and enormous self regard. We sure need another BO, don´t we? We´ll just have to wait about about 20 years while we clean up the mess that he left behind. Meanwhile we´ll have a bunch of new things to think about; The Ethics in Justice Act, The Ethics in Intelligence Act, The Ethics in Tax Administration Act, The Ethics in Environmental Quality Administration Act, The Clintoon Ethics in Charitable Organizations Act, and probably a few more.

MAGA. Winning in so many ways.

I spend about 20 hours a year completing "Conflict Minerals" documents, which is also a part of this law, and I´ve got it easy. We don´t use any steel with conflict minerals in them, but if you do, you need an entire legal / compliance desk to work through the "stuff".

Sadly, most of the small local banks are gone, thanks to Dodd Frank.

My bank was an independent bank, bought out several years ago by another similar sized bank and now another bank in a neighboring state. I guess less than 100 branches count as a small bank nowadays.

Some friends of mine ran a small community bank in a nearby town. The cost of regulation under Dodd Frank was so high and the ability to "meet" the requirements -- although a very profitable bank and in an area that was booming -- led them to sell the bank to another bank about their size in a nearby metro area.

In the mean time, since QE benefits for the big five is waning, the parts of Dodd-Frank being "fixed" will spread the now 21 trillion dollar debt to the remaining smaller banks.

Every law the uni-Party Congress passes has corporate donor payback written all over it, starting with the failed attempt at Hillarycare to enrich "Big Pharma" in the Age of Bubba to every single thing done under Idi Obama. Payoffs to major industries, whether Goldman-Sachs, AIG, or Citibank the "Senator PAC Highway" isn´t far away from the legislation.

Dodd-Frank did one thing well. It gave the Kenyan fraud something with which to brag that he fixed a mess that he inherited from George w. Bush. Naturally he didn´t mention that the entire mess was created by democrats to allow blacks and hispanics to buy homes and then send them into foreclosure, thus turning the real estate industy on its back.

YES, #9. Sarbanes-Oxley has been an unconstitutional pain in my butt since 1985. Daniel Patrick Moynihan outdid himself with that massive screwing of independent, self-employed engineers and computer programmers. The extra work and record keeping by business is a crime in itself and the outright government-imposed theft is staggering.

The long-awaited showdown between the Justice Department and Congress is finally here. It started late Friday afternoon. While the rest of the country was parsing the just-released report on the FBI from the Justice Department’s inspector general, senior congressional leaders and selected committee chairmen quietly met with FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein at a secure location in the basement of the Capitol. At issue was Justice and FBI’s continuing defiance of congressional subpoenas. At the top of this list is the demand from the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence for documents about why and whether the

FBI Director Wray has said nothing to reassure Americans that he understands the serious corruption highlighted in the IG report. The FBI´s cover-ups and stonewalling on Wray´s watch add to his credibility problems. Both in is his press conference after the IG report was released, and in his testimony Monday before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Director Wray demonstrated he was more concerned about protecting the reputation of the institution of the FBI than about the astonishing corruption of top FBI officials detailed in the IG report.

For once, the Southern Poverty Law Center has to cough up for an outrageous smear. The SPLC rakes in donations by claiming to fight hate, but its lists of hate groups routinely include not just truly vile outfits but also ones that simply don’t toe a politically correct line. It went too far in listing Maajid Nawaz and Quilliam, a think tank he founded, in its 2016 “Field Guide to Anti-Muslim Extremists,” which proclaimed in part: “Extremists routinely espouse a wide range of utter falsehoods, all designed to make Muslims appear as bloodthirsty terrorists or people intent on undermining American constitutional freedoms.” Actually,

The government is obsessed with your face. Do not be flattered. This is more of a creepy stalker fixation. From the federal Department of Homeland Security down to local police departments, governmental use of biometric facial recognition software has gained a startling amount of traction in recent years. And these agencies are getting help from big business, to boot. For example, DHS is reportedly developing a massive new biometric and biographic database with extensive data on citizens and foreigners alike. The Homeland Advanced Recognition Technology (HART) database will reportedly include at least seven biometric identifiers, including face and voice data, tattoos, DNA,

While the Trump administration is being slammed by critics for its "zero-tolerance" policy of separating children from adults who illegally enter the country, the outcry over the federal government´s handling of the sensitive issue of how to handle minors is hardly new. The Obama administration actually expanded the system of detaining families – typically mothers and their minor children – after a huge surge of Central Americans along the U.S.-Mexican border in 2014. The policy resulted in many minors being detained in various locations, in much-criticized conditions, either with their families or by themselves, if they had crossed the border alone. Videos

In the pre-dawn hours yesterday, the nation experienced yet another mass shooting. One dead, 22 injured, including a 13-year-old boy. It took place at the crowded Art All Night Trenton festival in New Jersey. To their limited credit, a couple of cable news outlets mentioned the shooting in their coverage yesterday and this morning. The New York Times wrote a rather lengthy article about it, though it showed up on page A-17. It received similarly “not prominent” coverage in other major papers. The Associated Press took a fairly deep dive on it, but you need to search around a bit

We have two choices when it comes to border security and interior enforcement. We can continue telegraphing the message that when you come here with children you are home free. This will continue fueling the drug crisis, growing MS-13, enriching the drug cartels, inducing sex trafficking and terrible crimes at the border, encouraging illegals to kidnap children to gain admission, and causing death and mayhem on both sides of the border. Or we could finally deter this behavior by announcing an end to any immigration requests not processed in a controlled environment through our embassy. If you are concerned about

Political spinning about the Department of Justice’s Inspector General’s report that came out last Thursday is all about shiny bits and pieces of the report. It misses the events outside the report’s four corners that magnify its importance tenfold. Let’s pull back on the stick, gain some altitude, and examine some of the more important facts. When we do, we have to conclude that the Augean Stables on Pennsylvania Avenue — the Justice Department building and, across the street, the J. Edgar Hoover FBI building — have to be cleaned out.

When David and Shirley Pirlott filed a federal labor complaint against Teamsters Local 75 on Nov. 8, 1987, the day before the Berlin Wall fell, they did not imagine they would have to wait 30 years to resolve the dispute. The Pirlotts were finally vindicated in March 2018 when the Wisconsin-based Teamsters local mailed them separate checks of about $3,000 for failing to allow them to opt out of union dues. The case spanned five presidencies, dozens of National Labor Relations Board members, and numerous appearances before the D.C. Court of Appeals. In the time it took for the NLRB to

It seems that by his own conception, James Comey is St. James, heavenly protector of patriotism and principle. Which is only to say, few men in American history have possessed as thoroughly a misguided self-awareness as our former FBI director. As we now know, the erstwhile hero of the Trump Resistance had both mismanaged and misappropriated his power in ways that may have irreparably undermined the reputation of the most powerful enforcement agency in the United States. When the Justice Department’s internal watchdog dropped a report on the Hillary Clinton e-mail investigation last week, we learned Comey wasn’t merely incompetent, nor was

Onside the Republican party, President Trump is riding high and his critics seem to be running scared. He enjoys sky-high approval ratings from voters who identify with the GOP, and his Republican critics are paying a price for crossing him. On Tuesday, the day that voters went to the polls in South Carolina, Trump slammed GOP representative Mark Sanford and urged Republicans to vote for his rival in the congressional race in the state’s first district: TheRealDonaldTrump @RealDonad_Trump Mark Sanford has been very unhelpful to me in my campaign to MAGA.

Brooks Koepka became the first man in 29 years to win back-to-back U.S. Open titles Sunday as he shot a 2-under 68 to hold off hard-charging Englishman Tommy Fleetwood by one stroke at Shinnecock Hills. Facing a course setup and weather conditions that were far more docile than in Saturday’s third round, Koepka moved to the front quickly by birdieing three of the first five holes. But a bogey at No. 6 pulled Koepka back toward the pack and he had to scramble to only drop one shot at the par-3 11th after he airmailed the green with a pitching wedge

It spent its entire life embedded on the ocean floor, likely never moving, according to scientists from the University of California – Riverside. A second small animal, an egg-shaped critter that may have looked like a raisin, was also discovered.

Illegal Immigration: The latest outrage by the Trump administration is its policy of "ripping" children away from parents who´ve crossed the border illegally. As with so many other things involving Trump, there´s plenty of emotion but precious little in the way of facts. The furor reached critical mass after the Department of Homeland Security said on Friday that 1,995 children had been separated from their illegal border crossing parents from mid-April through May. That number included, DHS said, cases where the adults were arrested for illegal entry, immigration violations, or possible criminal conduct. The practice has generated a rising storm of protests,

Roseanne Barr has become untouchable due to the "Valerie Jarrett/Ambien/Planet of the Apes" controversy, irrevocably contaminated by racism. This presents a problem for ABC, which canceled her revived show but wants the show to return in some form because it had high ratings. The apparent solution is to create a new show focused on the daughter character "Darlene," which would exclude Roseanne. Unfortunately, Roseanne Barr owns a chunk of the show, and ABC doesn´t want to be seen letting Barr profit from it, so ABC is in talks to buy the show from Barr so she would not technically profit

The Justice Department’s tepid OIG report, with its risible assertion that there was no political bias in the FBI’s Clinton email probe, suggests that it was written by people afraid to tell the unvarnished truth about the conduct of the federal government’s police apparatus, an agency that openly defies congressional oversight and has participated in a vendetta against a sitting president. The FBI’s leadership clearly hopes that the Democrats will win majorities in Congress and put a halt to the investigations into its multifarious abuses of power.

Melania Trump´s approval rating is down six points after she spent a month out of the public eye following her kidney procedure, a new poll revealed. A new CNN poll shows 51 percent of Americans approve of the first lady, down from 57 percent in a poll conducted last month. Her unfavorable rating is at 29 percent, up from 27 percent last month. The survey was conducted from June 14-17, one month after Melania Trump had her kidney procedure at Walter Reed Military Medical Center, which took place on May 14 and kept her out of sight for 25 days.

Starbucks shares fell as much as 3% in after-hours trading Tuesday after the coffeehouse chain provided a weak sales forecast for its upcoming quarter and said it would shutter 150 stores in fiscal 2019. The Seattle-based company said it would close underperforming stores in “densely penetrated markets” and slow its rate of store growth. Starbucks said it traditionally closes about 50 underperforming locations annually. Starbucks said it expects same-store sales to grow 1% in its third fiscal quarter of 2017. Analysts had expected same-store sales to grow 3% in that period. “While certain demand headwinds are transitory, and some of
