Misspoke Has Morphed Into Misled

Okay, so a lie is a lie is a lie is a lie.

(Typing that made me feel like a back-up singer in a Hawaiian band.)

But, here’s the deal.


That’s the headline.

Then we get to the story.

Steve Mnuchin, former chairman and chief executive officer of OneWest Bank, known for its aggressive foreclosure practices, flatly denied in testimony before the Senate Finance Committee that OneWest used “robo-signing” on mortgage documents.

But records show the bank utilized the questionable practice in Ohio.

“The guy is just lying. There’s no other way to say it,” said Bill Faith, executive director of the Coalition on Homelessness and Housing in Ohio.

You can read the whole horror stories of what this sumbitch did.  What he did was steal people’s houses.  Gleefully.  I suspect he shaved off his Snidely Whiplash mustache right before the hearing but he still has Miss Nell tied up somewhere.

If he will lie in a sworn statement and commit raw perjury to get this job, what the fool tarnation do you expect him to do under the sweet protective arm of Donald Trump and Steve Bannon?

He’s gonna screw us all.

  1. Is there a single qualified cabinet pick? I haven’t seen one.

  2. @Zyxomma, I think the guy at the Pentagon, Mattis, is qualified. He’s the only one. Poor fellow is going to be Trump’s Colin Powell.

  3. Have they fired that very ‘no nonsense looking’ Congressional Sergeant-at-Arms guy who you’ve seen escorting the previous few Presidents to the podium?

    Zyxomma, qualified you ask. I’d be hard pressed to find one in the bunch who isn’t a bomb throwing, self-serving agenda driven string of expletives deleted sucking America dry pig. Intent on destroying their ‘appointed’ agency to enhance their grasp on their ill gotten wealth. Was a day that perhaps we should consider them anarchists, but they don’t deserve the honor or distinction of an anarchist.

    A govt job is but another tax hidey hole for them. “Divest” means they are allowed to sell what they want, tax free. Meet the win-win, want more world of Donnie and his .01% team.

  5. You know this munchkin guy can afford the bigly lawyers, so I expect he thinks he’s got some kind of crossed-fingers defense against a perjury charge. I’d sure pay to see congress go after him on it.

    Malarkey, this Mad Dog? ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis who told Iraqis in 2003 that he came “in peace’ – he even urged his Marines to be compassionate – but said of those who might dare to resist America’s illegal invasion of their country: “If you f**k with me, I’ll kill you all.”

    Rebecca of Donnybrook Farm eschews the waterboard and pays lip service to smokes & beer and the rule of law. But he fails to mention his passion for big weapons and killing. Shock and awe, baby. Then we’ll ‘talk.’

  7. In the new speak of this administration Mnuchin did not misspeak, mislead or lie. He presented just alternative facts.

  8. Someone wrote that Trump picked “Mad Dog” Mattis because he liked the nickname. Maybe not true, but who cares?

    Of the Ten Commandments that Kristians think are the basis of our laws, three actually are laws (everywhere), and one of them, along with not killing or stealing, is not bearing false witness, i.e. not lying to the authorities. Unless you’re angling for a nice job, and then IOKIYAR.

  9. That takes a special kind of gumption. ALL the major players in the mortgage servicing business robosigned, or worse — outsourced the robosigning — which is even dicier.

    By law, servicers were supposed to file with the original loan documents, but during the various trials it turns out that (at least) several of the majors did not: they ‘rebuilt’ the loan files and sent those in. DocX (later/now? a part of Fidelity) was among those that did the ‘rebuilding’ from scratch. That was noticed here and there in the mortgage world, but somehow mostly didn’t make it into the mainstream press. A very few people got free houses when they discovered attempted fraud in courts willing to take notice…

    OT, sort of – this is going to screw us all too! The husband predicted on the night of the inauguration that there would be war in the Ukraine by 1 February. It is 30 January; the war started today.

    Still a man hears what he wants to hear
    And disregards the rest

    Lie de lie. Lie de lie lie lie de die
    Lie de lie. Lie de lie lie lie de die
    Lie lie lie de die

  12. Horrible creature that he is, Mnuchin is only one of a gang of Banksters who stole homes right and left. Somehow Eric Holder never could figure out how to prosecute them.

  13. Oh yeah, another member of the tribe to make me really proud to be a Jew.

    LIAR. Why can’t we say that word?
