Super Tuesday Polls open in the South and New England on a

first_imgHOUSTON, Texas – Polls opened across the U.S. South and New England Tuesday morning, heralding the opening of a day-long contest that was widely expected to secure the frontrunner status of both Republican Donald J. Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton.The day before, presidential hopefuls made frantic sprints across the country in anticipation of a massive day of voting across nearly a dozen states.In Massachusetts and Minnesota, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont continued to draw the mega-rallies of enthusiastic supporters that have become the hallmark of his campaign. Republican Ted Cruz pleaded with voters in his home state of Texas for their support — banking on a primary victory here to jump-start his sputtering candidacy and stop Trump’s march as the runaway leader for the nomination.While voting results could give Trump a critical boost against his closest rivals, Cruz and Sen. Marco Rubio, Fla., a well-funded super PAC is ramping up its effort to discredit the New York businessman with a devastating new television advertisement that portrays him as a predatory huckster who scammed working- and middle-class Americans.A 60-second ad, which will begin airing Wednesday on stations across the country at the cost of more than $1 million, centers on Trump University, the billionaire mogul’s for-profit enterprise that promised to teach students the tricks of the real estate trade and is now defunct and the subject of a fraud suit.The ad, titled “Scam,” is the latest component of the stop-Trump campaign of Our Principles PAC, a conservative group funded in part by Marlene Ricketts, a major Republican donor and the wife of TD Ameritrade founder Joe Ricketts.The attack echoes themes that Rubio, who is trying to unite the GOP’s anti-Trump forces under his own banner, has made as he has addressed swelling crowds in suburban areas.Both visibly fatigued from weeks of breakneck travel, Cruz and Rubio campaigned for Super Tuesday as if they were cramming for an exam. The senators volleyed stinging character attacks at Trump, one after another, in a desperate move to halt the billionaire mogul’s momentum.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sk0XZJ3hAbwBut if the polls and roaring crowds that greeted Trump in Virginia and Georgia on Monday were any indication, he is steamrolling toward a triumphant showing Tuesday. Republican primaries or caucuses will take place in 11 states — seven across the South, as well as Alaska, Minnesota, Massachusetts and Vermont — and the only one Trump is not expected to win is Texas, where Cruz appears to be the favorite.“You don’t get to abuse our immigration laws and take advantage of American workers, and suddenly call yourself a champion of working men and women,” Cruz said. He added later: “If you don’t want to see Donald Trump as the nominee, if you don’t want to see Hillary Clinton as the next president, then stand with us, tomorrow, on Super Tuesday.”At a rowdy rally at Radford University in Virginia, Trump sold himself as the polling front-runner and as a more effective leader than either of the freshman senators. He repeatedly referred to them by demeaning nicknames — “Lying Ted Cruz” and “Little Marco Rubio” — and mocked the latter for his frequent sweating and sipping of water.Protesters interrupted the rally at several points, drawing swift rebukes from Trump, who asked one woman if she was Mexican after a commotion. After a disruption by black attendees, who chanted slogans including “Black lives matter,” Trump shouted, “All lives matter.” The crowd cheered its approval of the candidate.See also: US expats in Costa Rica can vote in person for presidential primaryOn the Democratic side, Clinton was widely expected to sweep six southern states, including Virginia, where her longtime friend Terry McAuliffe is the sitting governor. Clinton’s trouncing of Sanders in South Carolina on Saturday, by nearly 50 percentage points, revealed an overwhelming advantage among African American voters that should play out in the minority-heavy South on Tuesday. Less clear is whether her winning streak will dampen Sanders’ previous advantage among the five other states at stake – Colorado, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Massachusetts and Sanders’ home state of Vermont.Although Clinton is still waging a hard-fought nomination battle against Sanders, she also began pivoting this week to her likely general-election opponent, Trump.On Monday, Clinton lingered on what she called “scapegoating” and “finger-pointing” in the Republican race — clearly signaling her willingness to criticize Trump.“The mean-spiritedness, the hateful rhetoric, the insults — that’s not who we are,” Clinton said in Springfield, Mass., a day ahead of the Super Tuesday voting that is expected to place her firmly in the lead for the Democratic nomination. “It really undermines our fabric as a nation.”Sanders, meanwhile, speaking to reporters beside his chartered jet in Boston Monday, vowed to stay in the race until voters in all 50 states have spoken. He also took a jab at Clinton for the “substantial sums” a super PAC supporting her has collected from corporate interests.“Tomorrow, all over the country our campaign is taking on the political establishment,” the senator from Vermont said. “We’re taking on governors and senators and mayors who know how to get out the vote. They do that very well.”Sanders’ wife Jane, speaking to reporters at the back of his campaign plane Monday night as it approached Burlington, Vt., said “time is on our side now” as a growing number of voters hear the senator’s message.“The more they listen to his message, the more they know him, they more support him as a person and him as a candidate to be president,” she said, adding he had no intention of dropping out of the race. “If you’ve gone to the rallies with us, you’ve seen the hope and the expectation, the fervor and the support for the ideas. Bernie’s not going to let those people down.”More delegates are up for grabs Tuesday than on any other single day in the Democratic nominating calendar.Back on the Republican side, Trump tried to signal that he was looking toward the general election, arguing that the early primary results show there is greater voter enthusiasm for him than for Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton.“There is enthusiasm,” Trump said of his campaign. “Big, big, big enthusiasm.”Advisers to Rubio and Cruz hoped for a clarifying verdict Tuesday that would winnow the nominating contest to two men: Trump and one of them.But both camps saw signs of trouble. Cruz has continued to find it difficult to unite a conservative coalition of evangelicals and self-described liberty voters. Kris Kobach, the secretary of state in Kansas and a high-profile opponent of illegal immigration, announced Monday that he was endorsing Trump, joining two fellow immigration crusaders, Sen. Jeff Sessions, Ala., and former Arizona governor Jan Brewer, on the Trump bandwagon.—The Washington Post’s John Wagner reported from Minnesota and Massachusetts.

Freddie Mac Adds New Suite to its Credit Risk Transfer Offerings

first_img in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News, Uncategorized Freddie Mac has added another innovation to its suite of credit risk transfer offerings. According to a recent press release, the Enterprise added its first two Agency Credit Insurance Structure (ACIS) transactions that provide coverage based on both first loss and actual losses realized on a reference pool of residential mortgages.Freddie Mac obtained insurance policies through these ACIS transactions that move much of the remaining credit risk associated with two Structured Agency Credit Risk (STACR) debt notes executed earlier this year to a panel of insurers and reinsurers. The two new policies will cover a maximum limit of $223 million of losses that Freddie Mac incurs when homeowners default.”The reinsurance market’s response was very good for ACIS coverage expanding to both first loss and actual losses,” said Kevin Palmer, VP of Freddie Mac Single-Family strategic credit costing and structuring. “We continue to improve our innovative products while supporting the nation’s housing markets. We’ve increased private market participation and have further expanded our panel of both foreign and domestic investors. Combined with our previous ACIS transactions, we have now acquired more than $1.7 billion in additional insurance coverage since 2013.”According to Freddie Mac, they have led the market in introducing new risk-sharing initiatives with 14 STACR offerings, including first loss and actual loss risk transactions. They have also conducted nine ACIS transactions since mid-2013.  Freddie Mac has laid off a substantial portion of credit risk on more than $313 billion of UPB in single-family mortgages through STACR and ACIS.  They were also the first agency to market credit risk transfer transactions with STACR and ACIS and has grown its investor base to more than 160 unique investors, including many of the largest money managers in the U.S.In a report released on Thursday by the Urban Institute (UI), authors Laurie Goodman, director of Housing Finance Policy Center at UI and Karan Kaul, a research associate at UI determined that the two GSEs play an important, indisputable part in the U.S. mortgage market, but also pose a huge risk to taxpayers.“GSE risk-transfer has made tremendous progress during the last three years, placing private capital in the first-loss position and bolstering taxpayer protection,” the authors concluded. “Risk transfer remains in its infancy, however, so we expect to see more innovations on STACR and CAS transactions, as well as more risk sharing at the point of origination to further reduce taxpayer risk. While no one knows what the longer-term future of housing finance will look like, we expect credit-risk transfer to play a critical role.” July 9, 2015 444 Views Agency Credit Insurance Structure Credit Risk Transfer Freddie Mac Residential Mortgages 2015-07-09 Staff Writercenter_img Freddie Mac Adds New Suite to its Credit Risk Transfer Offerings Sharelast_img read more

suremuch more that needs to be investigated and explained This evidence needs to be squared with other sourcesparticularly on the Samjhauta Express blast The timing of the leak of the confession will certainly raise political eyebrows The confessionwithout corroborating evidencemay not prove to be decisive Butas strategic expert B Raman has rightly saidthe circumstances make it difficult to dismiss this confession out of hand This much is crystal clear Firstthat terror groups inspired by Hindutva exist It is not much of a comfort to say that these are fringe elements The significance of these elements is often revealed only in long hindsight; they can trigger fears and anxieties far in excess of their numbers Who knows what sort of subterranean counter-politics these revelations will generate Even if they are only a few dropsthey are a poison that can vitiate the whole Pious homilies about their marginality cannot disguise this possibility Secondthese are groups thateven within their own paradigmhave created a new moral abyss They have cloaked themselves in the garb of victims seeking retaliation They are not only tempted by violencethey have no compunctions about striking the holiest places of worship like the Dargah at Ajmerthe deepest manifestations of our civilisations connection to the sacred What kind of sickness has allowed the appellations swami and sadhvi to be colonised by a tissue of violent resentments Thirdour response to this challenge has beenat bestan embarrassed denial In the process we have put on display our double standards We could not even get ourselves to admit that anyone claiming the appellation Hindu could be terrorists This is more a symptom of our prejudice than a fact This also seemed to blindside investigative agencies enough that they kept on pursuing the wrong leads and targeting the wrong groups But there is also a national security challenge posed by this episode The BJPperhaps instinctivelybut true to formis not handling these revelations well The leaks may well be politically motivated But in the larger scheme of things the motivation behind the leaks is a small sideshow Whichever way you look at itIndias credibility is seriously dented We all understand that the CBI can be used politicallyand no one puts it past this government to use law enforcement agencies selectively Yetif the BJP attacks the credibility of the state lock stock and barrelthink of the consequences The one thing about credibility is that you either have it or you dont: you cannot cherry-pick If we legitimise the argument that there is nothing to law enforcement agencies but politicswhere does it leave any action of the state After allit is the very same state that prosecutes Afzal Guru and Ajmal Kasab God knowsthere are serious miscarriages of justice and abuses of power in our system But to simply dismiss the state on partisan grounds would be to say exactly the same thing states like Pakistan say about India: that this state cannot be trusted with any investigation and any evidence Instead of attacking the statethe BJP needs to help examine the case on the merits The only way to deal with possible miscarriages is to examine the veracity of a chargenot change the subject by impugning the source Besidesthe BJP needs to learn a political lesson Nothing diminished LK Advani before the last election more than his artlesspassionate and entirely a priori defence of Sadhvi Pragya Their attack on Hemant Karkare haunts them to this day; it suggested a level of pre-commitmentsmall-mindedness and a lack of institutional judgment not befitting a leader Nitin Gadkaris equivocations and Ravi Shankar Prasads defensiveness are in the same vein The BJP has to recognise that a strong and credible state is incompatible with any form of community partisanship It could have turned this crisis on the head by at least being consistent on the issue of possible miscarriages of justice It could have shown equal concern for Muslim youths falsely arrested The RSS willon the surfacemake all the right noises distancing itself from terrorism But the revelations are so damaging that if it has any semblance of genuine nationalism leftit will have to do more than verbal distancing It will have to actively cooperate to root out this menaceand find a way of atoning as an organisation that is unprecedented This is highly unlikely But it is the only way of answering the question as to why the organisation should be tolerated at all Let usfor a momenteven suppose that the Congress is playing cheap politics with the timing of these revelations But even cheaper politicsin returnwill do more damage In some waysfor us as citizensthe charge that the investigation is politicised is also a psychologically easy let-off It prevents us from fully confronting the significance of all that is being revealed A few self-selected crazies on the net notwithstandingthere is little reason to believe that the activities of the terror groups being identified has wide political support If anythingthere is likely to be revulsion But there is a danger that this revulsion will be overshadowed by embarrassmentproducing a silence that smacks of complicity This silence can only add to the political damage we have already inflicted on ourselves We also need to understand that India has been diminished by these revelations We can go on all we want about the difference between India and Pakistan We can say that the Pakistani state has supported terrorismbut the Indian state has not But to most of the world this will appear to be more a matter of degree than of kind It will once again relate the issue of terrorismnot to a particular statepursuing its objectives through violencebut to the general history of Hindu-Muslim violence and counter-violence The only way this damage can be repaired is if the Indian state credibly and relentlessly pursues its investigationswithout us impugning its credibility from the start Perhaps this serious crisis can be turned on its head By admitting our mistakesblind spots and omissionswe can at least send a signal that we have the resilience and courage to correct our mistakes Otherwisewe will be exactly in the same boat that we place Pakistan: a society that practises the politics of denial The writer is presidentCentre for
