Here is the first piece of commercial real estate bailout that I have been expecting.  In this AP news piece, they mention that the Term Asset-Backed Securities Loan Facility program has been extended to cover CMBS (Commercial Mortgage Backed Securities).  It mentions that that creating CMBS takes time and March 2010 is not that far off so we can either expect another extension or another program that would be more direct to the commercial mortgage industry to get the money more directly.

Well here we go, here is your “Mainstreet” bailout.  I am just shocked that speculator or investors are getting their hands on our money.   We are in a serious crisis and this is a sign the the dollar is going die and we are going to be hit by a depression and hyper-inflation.  Now we are at 0% on the interest rate the only thing they  have left is to print money or what they call Quantitative Easing.  Good Luck, take measure to be prepared.

The Fed said on Friday it would offer low-cost three-year funding to any US company investing in securitised consumer loans under the Term Asset-backed Securities Loan Facility (TALF). This includes hedge funds, which have never been able to borrow from the US central bank before, although the Fed may not permit hedge funds to use offshore vehicles to conduct the transactions.
