Down with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac – What’s going on behind the curtain?

25 October 2011 1,651 views No Comment

Outrage abounds in and on the street as news emerges that the executives at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are being paid millions of dollars in bonuses.  Well, if that is really the case, it is certainly a disgusting testimony to the greed that has become commonplace in this country.

We Truth is fighting mad about the article in Politico concerning the executives at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.   However, we should pause and consider the likely benefits and costs of these actions/reactions.  We should ask ourselves why Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac would light the outrage of the people at a time they almost assuredly knew would draw a negative response.  Sometimes, when something seems outrageous it is intended to evoke the response.  So ask yourselves, what else is going on here?

Like a Magician and his slight-of-hand, we’re made to focus on his right hand while the left hides the cause of the magic.  So too, we allow ourselves to become distracted, through the media, on minor inconveniences and allow ourselves to lose track of the really important events.

What else is going on today to cause the government and their buddies to believe they needed to distract us?  Hmm, that’s a very good question.  Let’s think about what else is going on around the world and within this country.  Fast and Furious, Shu, Holder, Obama, Greece, Oil, Natural Gas, Energy, Water, Food, Population, China, Pakistan, Syria, the 2012 Election, etc???  What should we focus our attention upon?  Is it the Federal Reserve printing money, is it a new release of Treasuries being purchased with new loans from the Feds by the very same banks that caused the increase in debt, or is it the gradual release of trillions of dollars held back into the corporate world to cause the appearance of a recovery in the economy; what is the true motive?  We Truth is not sure but we’re hesitant to simply run down a path that appears too conveniently laid before us.

All in all, a few million dollars given to some pricks at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac may draw extreme criticism, but it does not present an avenue of resolution to the underlying causes.  We must focus on the actual cause and see why it wishes, at this particular moment, to divert our attention from other matters.  Is it the possibility that Syria has obtained a nuclear weapon with the aid of Pakistan?  Is it the possibility that, as I write, friends of our government are transferring billions of dollars to the leaders or friends of Greece to avoid a financial disaster in Europe to protect the financial interests of their constituency?  What is the real method to their madness?  Let’s begin by creating a hierarchy of potential strategies and work our way down the possible benefits each would present and the possible costs.  In the end, we usually find that if we follow the money we can often predict the motives.

So, who’s going to benefit at the present time by the media and the people focusing on the heads of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac?  Before we blindly blame the heads of the quasi-governmental agencies, let’s realize they are but a symptom of the underlying sickness in our society.  We must not allow ourselves to become simply the pawns of our own game of Chess.  From the beginning, the People have always been the King and Queen in our government, the government being the servants of the People.  Lately, we have allowed our God given role to be usurped and because of our apathy we have become predictable.  As we move forward, we must resume our position and obtain a more complete view of our own chess boards.  If we don’t know why each piece is being moved we will certainly be disadvantaged and likely be unable to protect ourselves from future harm.
