Insurer Losses From Subprime Approach Katrina Claims

Source: Bloomberg
March 14 (Bloomberg) -- The collapse of the subprime mortgage market will lead to record losses for insurance companies, overtaking Hurricane Katrina, the worst natural disaster in U.S. history.
The amount of asset writedowns and credit losses reported by the industry has reached at least $38 billion, just short of the $41.1 billion in claims from Katrina, which killed more than 1,500 people and left more than half of New Orleans homeless in 2005, data compiled by Bloomberg show.
American International Group Inc., the world's biggest insurer, reported the largest quarterly loss in its 89-year history because of the decline in investments linked to mortgages. Chief Executive Officer Martin Sullivan told shareholders last month that more losses are possible amid the most depressed U.S. housing market in a quarter century. The KBW Insurance Index ended 2007 with its worst quarter in five years and fell another 17 percent this year.
``This is a bigger event than Katrina,'' said Robert Haines, an insurance analyst at New York-based CreditSights Inc. ``This is a much more unprecedented event.''
After Katrina, companies including Northbrook, Illinois- based Allstate Corp., the largest publicly traded U.S. home insurer, raised rates in disaster-prone areas, bolstering their balance sheets and stock prices. Now, insurers are stuck holding mortgage-related investments in a market where there are so few buyers that it's hard to know what those assets are worth

Weak Dollar Costs U.S. Economy Its World No. 1 Spot

Published: March 14, 2008
PARIS (Reuters) - The U.S. economy lost the title of "world's biggest" to the euro zone this week as the value of the dollar slumped in currency markets.
Taking the gross domestic product of both economies in 2007, the combined GDP of the 15 countries which use the euro overtook that of the United States when the European currency surged to a record high of more than $1.56 per euro.
"The curious outcome of breaching this latest milestone is that the size of the euro zone's annual output has now exceeded that of the U.S.," the economics department of Goldman Sachs, the Wall Street investment bank, said in a note to clients.
Taking official estimates of 2007 GDP -- $13,843,800 billion for the United States and 8,847,889.1 billion euros for the euro zone -- the economy of the latter passed the United States once converted into dollars, shortly after the euro topped $1.56.
The dollar sank to $1.5688 per euro late in European trading hours on Friday, at which rate the euro zone's 2007 GDP equates to $13,880,568.4 billion....
Ozone Rules Weakened at Bush's Behest
EPA Scrambles To Justify ActionBy Juliet EilperinWashington Post Staff Writer Friday, March 14, 2008; Page A01 The Environmental Protection Agency weakened one part of its new limits on smog-forming ozone after an unusual last-minute intervention by President Bush, according to documents released by the EPA.EPA officials initially tried to set a lower seasonal limit on ozone to protect wildlife, parks and farmland, as required under the law. While their proposal was less restrictive than what the EPA's scientific advisers had proposed, Bush overruled EPA officials and on Tuesday ordered the agency to increase the limit, according to the documents. "It is unprecedented and an unlawful act of political interference for the president personally to override a decision that the Clean Air Act leaves exclusively to EPA's expert scientific judgment," said John Walke, clean-air director for the Natural Resources Defense Council. ----Solicitor General Paul D. Clement warned administration officials late Tuesday night that the rules contradicted the EPA's past submissions to the Supreme Court, according to sources familiar with the conversation. As a consequence, administration lawyers hustled to craft new legal justifications for the weakened standard.

Clinton's Mississippi Republicans

By Mark Blumenthal, NationalJournal.com© National Journal Group Inc.Wednesday, March 12, 2008
Last week's column covered some of the nagging problems with exit polls and the way some of us, arguably, misuse them. This week, let's look at the reason exit polls are so vital and important to our understanding of elections, particularly Tuesday's Mississippi primary.
The Mississippi exit poll tabulations posted on network Web sites last night show a new wrinkle in the Democratic presidential contest: Twelve percent of the Democratic primary voters in Mississippi described themselves as Republicans, a level far higher than in previous primaries. As the pro-Barack Obama Jed Report notes, the percentage of Republican identifiers voting in Democratic nomination contests has increased significantly in recent weeks -- from 4 percent in states that held primaries in January and February to 9 percent in the March 4 primaries to 12 percent in Mississippi on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Hillary Rodham Clinton's support among Republicans (in the states where the Republican subgroup was large enough to merit reporting) rose from 31 percent in January and February to 48 percent on March 4 to 75 percent in Mississippi. Overall, 9 percent of the Mississippi Democratic primary voters were self-identified Republicans who voted for Clinton.
If nothing else, those sorts of findings would be impossible without standardized, representative sample surveys of actual voters. Mississippi lacks party registration, so it would be impossible to check the party affiliation of voters there without an exit poll. Moreover, given the myriad of registration laws and procedures, the standard party identification question used on the exit poll (which asks voters whether they "usually think of" themselves as a Democrat, Republican or independent) is the only way to make such comparisons across states.
But the plot thickens. We really want to know why so many Republicans voted in the Mississippi Democratic primary. Are they ready to support a Democratic nominee, or are they just voting to help John McCain and undermine the Democrats? Or is there another reason? >>>cont

Secret Service Agents caught LYING.

Something stinks about Howards vs. Reichle.
Secret Service agents are accusing each other of falsifying documents and testimonies in a criminal probe involving a Golden environmental consultant and Dick Cheney.
Accusations stem from a 15-second encounter in Beaver Creek in which Steven Howards approached the vice president to call his Iraq policy "disgusting."
Add to the intrigue Denver lawyer David Lane accusing Cheney and U.S. Magistrate Judge Craig Shaffer of "burying the truth" and "stonewalling and covering up lies."
And you're probably catching the stench.
This week's drama in U.S. District Court came more than 18 months after the Eagle County DA dropped a harassment charge against Howards after his June 2006 comment to the veep — who is mocked in mountain resorts for skiing in his jeans.
Howards was handcuffed in front of his young son. He since has sued five Secret Service agents, claiming civil rights violations and a conspiracy to retaliate for his dissent.
At issue are the agents' wildly contradictory stories about what they witnessed and how they reported the run-in. Accounts range from Howards stiff-arming Cheney from behind to approaching from the front and casually slapping him on the shoulder. >>>cont

Bush sings cover of Green Green Grass of Home to the Gridiron Club

Silenced Majority Portal
The reporters who attended the invitation only dinner laughed throughout Bush's song which makes fun of people dying in New Orleans, and many of the other failures and abuses during his time in office.
It's a sad to see this moron's insensitivity and the complicity of the press.
Here is what 'g' had to say on the NY Times blog:
I think his aides that helped him craft his parody were probably too young to be familiar with the original version of “The Green Green Grass of Home” to know that it’s a song about a condemned man on death row just before his execution. He dreams of his home and awakes to be escorted to the death chamber, and sings of how they’ll bury him beneath the green green grass of home.So I find it amusingly appropriate that Bush sings of awakening after his dream to find Condi and Dick with him - they all belong in prison.Could Bush and his handlers really be so clueless, so lacking in a sense of irony as to have missed this imagery associated with this song? Or did some clever event planner pull another Stephen Colbert on him?

President Bush let his inner adventurer out

President Bush let his inner adventurer out while discussing the state of the war in Afghanistan with military and civilian personnel. While those in Afghanistan detailed the logistical and diplomatic problems via teleconference, the President took a much more whimsical approach to their mission. Via Reuters:
"I must say, I'm a little envious," Bush said. "If I were slightly younger and not employed here, I think it would be a fantastic experience to be on the front lines of helping this young democracy succeed."
"It must be exciting for you ... in some ways romantic, in some ways, you know, confronting danger. You're really making history, and thanks," Bush said.
Meanwhile, over 40 Taliban insurgents were killed in a battle in Southern Afghanistan, and six Afghani civilians were killed in a suicide bombing aimed at an American convoy.

Iraq American Death Count: Public Largely Unaware
Public awareness of the number of American military fatalities in Iraq has declined sharply since last August. Today, just 28% of adults are able to say that approximately 4,000 Americans have died in the Iraq war. As of March 10, the Department of Defense had confirmed the deaths of 3,974 U.S. military personnel in Iraq.

Banks to Seize Carlyle Capital Assets

NEW YORK — The likely liquidation of Carlyle Capital Corp.'s remaining assets sent the fund's shares plummeting more than 90 percent Thursday and rattled stock markets around the globe. It was also a high-profile setback for private equity fund Carlyle Group.
Carlyle Capital said late Wednesday that it expected creditors to seize all of the fund's remaining assets _ investment-grade mortgage-backed securities _ after unsuccessful negotiations to prevent its liquidation.
Its shares, which went public at $19 a share in July and traded at $12 just last week, tumbled 93.6 percent to 18 cents on the Euronext exchange.
"Although it has been working diligently with its lenders, the company has not been able to reach a mutually beneficial agreement to stabilize its financing," Carlyle Capital said in a statement.
Carlyle Capital said it has defaulted on about $16.6 billion of its debt as of Wednesday, and the rest is expected to go into default soon. About $5.7 billion of the defaulted debt has been sold, the Carlyle Group said Thursday. Spokeswoman Emma Thorpe said she couldn't say what has been done with the rest.
The Amsterdam-listed fund shook financial markets last week after missing margin calls from banks on its $21.7 billion portfolio of residential-mortgage-backed bonds.
Carlyle's troubles have amplified fears that billions of dollars of depressed mortgage-backed securities will flood the market, reducing their value even further. The Dow Jones industrial sank more than 200 points, following indexes in Asia and Europe lower.
The sell-off would mark a huge defeat for the Washington, D.C.-based Carlyle Group, one of the largest private equity firms in the world. Carlyle Capital, registered in Britain but managed by New York-based executives, was the first of its 55 funds to go public.

Senator Clinton Isn't A Republican, As Far As I Know

Bob Cesca
Winston Churchill wrote:
"A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on."
The big lie -- the "ultimate fear bomb," as Michelle Obama put it -- is this notion that Senator Obama, despite being a Christian and a patriot, isn't who we says he is. I'm referencing, of course, this ridiculous e-mail whisper campaign which continues to make its roundelay through the tubes. In fact, a friend of a friend who continues to inexplicably open anything with a "Fw:" in the subject line actually e-mailed the goddamn thing to me last week. I've since set up an Outlook Express message rule that automatically obliterates any e-mail containing the words "madrassa" and "Hussein." If Outlook was able to somehow sniff out horseshit, I'd be leaning on that message rule as well. Yet between this awful viral blast and the on-going fear-bombing with regards to the senator's name, the fact that he's achieved an uninterrupted lead in the popular vote and the pledged delegate tally is a testament to the unstoppable power of his campaign.
What's more shocking than the psychonaut tenacity of the whisper pandemic about Senator Obama is that it's far more plausible that Senator Clinton is a Republican Manchurian Candidate. Now, I'm not suggesting that Senator Clinton is really a Republican. As far as I know, and I take her at her word.
But just for the hell of it, let's read the record.
When Senator Clinton was a senior in high school, she was a member of Citizens for Goldwater-Miller. The following year, she was elected president of the Young Republicans at Wellesley College. So, in her youth, there's no denying that she absolutely was a Republican. You won't find this information in her online biography, by the way, so you'll have to ask her about it. >>>cont

Survey: Most Americans Underestimate US Deaths In Iraq

Fewer Know Number of US Deaths in Iraq
WASHINGTON — Fewer people know how many U.S. troops have died in the war in Iraq, even as public attention to the conflict has gradually diminished, a poll showed Wednesday.
Only 28 percent correctly said that about 4,000 Americans have died in the war, according to a survey by the nonpartisan Pew Research Center.
That's down from last August, when 54 percent gave the accurate casualty figure, which was about 3,500 dead at the time. In previous Pew surveys dating to 2004, about half have correctly given the rough figure for the approximate number of deaths at the time.
In the new poll, around a third said about 3,000 U.S. troops have died while about one in 10 said 2,000 deaths. Fewer overestimated the number of casualties: about a quarter put the figure close to 5,000. >>>cont

House Democrats Reject Telecom Immunity

The Associated Press reports: "Locked in a standoff with the White House, House Democrats on Tuesday maintained their refusal to shield from civil lawsuits telecommunications companies that helped the government eavesdrop on their customers without a secret court's permission. But they offered the companies an olive branch: the chance to use classified government documents to defend themselves in court."

Spitzer's Shame Is Wall Street's Gain

Robert Scheer writes for Truthdig, "Tell me again: Why should we get all worked up over the revelation that the New York governor paid for sex? Will it bring back to life the eight U.S. soldiers killed in Iraq that same day in a war that makes no sense and has cost this nation trillions in future debt? Will it save those millions of homes that hardworking folks all over the country are losing because of financial industry shenanigans that Eliot Spitzer, as much as anyone, attempted to halt? Perhaps it provides some insight into why oil has risen to $108 a barrel, benefiting most of all the oil sheiks whom our taxpayer-supported military has kept in power?"
On February 14, the day after New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer allegedly engaged the services of a call girl at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, DC, The Washington Post published an editorial by Spitzer on "how the Bush administration stopped the states from stepping in to help consumers."

This morning, the Pentagon cancelled plans to send out a press release announcing the report's release and will no longer make the report available online.
The report was to be posted on the Joint Forces Command website this afternoon, followed by a background briefing with the authors. No more. The report will be made available only to those who ask for it, and it will be sent via U.S. mail from Joint Forces Command in Norfolk, Virginia.
It won't be emailed to reporters and it won't be posted online. Read the report's executive summary HERE. .
Asked why the report would not be posted online and could not be emailed, the spokesman for Joint Forces Command said: "We're making the report available to anyone who wishes to have it, and we'll send it out via CD in the mail."

UK top cop who led CIA probe found dead

Mar 11, 2008 13:45 EST
A city police chief who led an investigation into charges that Britain cooperated with secret CIA flights to transport terrorism suspects without formal proceedings has been found dead, his deputy said Tuesday.
Manchester Chief Constable Michael Todd, 50, was found dead in Snowdonia, about 240 miles northwest of London, Deputy Chief Constable Dave Whatton said. He had been missing since going out for a walk Monday during his day off.
Whatton said the body, which was found Tuesday afternoon, had not yet been formally identified but he believed it was Todd.
He said a coroner's inquest would investigate the cause of death and did not give any further details.
Todd was elected vice president of the Association of Chief Police Officers of England and Wales in 2006, according to a biography on his Web site.
The association gave him the task of looking into accusations that Britain allowed the CIA to use the country's airports to fly terrorism suspects to other countries without any extradition hearings, a clandestine procedure known as "extraordinary rendition."
Todd's investigation concluded last June that there was no evidence to back the claim. Last month, however, Britain admitted one of its remote outposts in the Indian Ocean had twice been used by the United States as a refueling stop for the secret transfer of two terrorism suspects.
He and his wife had a daughter and twin sons.

CIA Holocaust Claims Twenty Million Victims

Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy
March 9, 2008The world's number one terrorist organization, the CIA has committed heinous acts of terrorism abroad, murdering critics of US foreign and domestic policies and has done it on behalf of an increasing tiny, privileged American elite. This elite is a tiny one percent which owns more than the combined wealth of the remaining 95% [See: the L-Curve]. On behalf of this tiny, privileged base, the CIA has placed itself above law and supervision. The CIA's war on the world has claimed an estimated 12 million to 20 million victims, far more than the best estimates attributed to Adolph Hitler's 'Holocaust' of World War II.
A war of plunder waged by the CIA on much of the world has been called the Third World War because many of its victims are chauvinistically, imperialistically, termed "third world". Given the magnitude of these CIA atrocities, we may, indeed, consider this panoply of terrorist acts a world war waged by privilege upon those who are less privileged, a war waged by the rich on the poor, a war of aggression by those who have against those who are without.
The official history of the CIA is dull reading. But one would not expect an official document of the US government to reveal the early connections between the CIA and Yale's notorious Skull and Bones society; one would not expect the US government to reveal the nature of CIA backed coups in Chile to its role in the notorious Bay of Pigs debacle. One would not expect an official document to detail the role played by the CIA in the Iran/Contra affair. One would not expect a sanitized government version of the CIA to reveal how the CIA creates and support death squads that have resulted in a holocaust not seen since the Third Reich. >>>cont
