Does White House Want To Say
Who Lives Where In America?

Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 8/8/2013 7:19:22 PM

Nanny State: If any question remained about the Obama White House´s appetite for running everyone´s life from Washington, it should be settled now. This administration even wants to dictate neighborhood makeup. Like your neighborhood? Don´t get used to it. The Obama Department of Housing and Urban Development might decide it wants to dictate changes. HUD is, according to Fox News, considering "a new rule that would allow the feds to track diversity in America´s neighborhoods and then push policies to change those it deems discriminatory." The proposed rule, disclosed last month by HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan at

Armed with the data, the most effective method of diversifying neighborhoods would be to impose lending requirements for home loans, i.e. if you are white and want to live in a white neighborhood, the bank may not be able to help you.

If some folks can´t afford to move into expensive neighborhoods then the government should pay most of the cost for them - after all, the most important thing is diversity. Other working folks might have to take on higher income tax burdens to make sure everybody lives in equally nice homes but that is a small price to pay for diversity.

I live in a fairly conservative area where the GOP does very well. Now, if in the name of diversity the federal government floods the district with folks from the inner city ...

Voila! Another safe GOP seat in Congress becomes a competitive district.

Very clever, huh.

Remember, the MSM, Dims and talking heads want Conservatives to avoid social issues...as I noted on another post yesterday, the Zero Administration is about nothing but liberal social issues like homosexual rights and marriage, driving wedges between economic classes, dietary controls, health mandates, green mandates, race-baiting, abortion on demand, pushing contraceptives to minor girls without parental notification or consent, and amnesty...very little is happening re a strong defense, energy sufficiency, a building a thriving economy and produces real jobs, and downsizing government...

Used to be you´d work hard in school to get a good job to put food on the table for yourself and your family.

Now you can just get an EBT card from the government, paid for by the suckers who work hard.

Used to be you´d work hard in school to get a good job with health benefits for yourself and your family.

Now you can get Obamacare from the government, paid for by the suckers who work hard.

Used to be you´d work hard in school to get a good job so you could provide a home in a good neighborhood for yourself and your family.

Now, even if you didn´t earn it, you´ll be able to live in the best neighborhoods, alongside the suckers who worked for it.

I predict we´re going to run out of suckers pretty soon.

I agree with #6; I too, want to have a mansion next to Matt Damon; I can´t afford it, so Matt should pay more so I can have a mansion too. Only fair. My friend lives in an expensive condo complex where 20% of the project had to be lower in price so that low income people could buy there too. So my friend had to come up with a lot more money, and the 20%-er´s are a constant problem; they have old cars that they work on in the driveway; they have too many kids for a two bedroom unit; they play their rap music very loud into the night, and they leave trash everywhere. How can this be fair?

They are dreaming as there is not enough money in the country to purchase and maintain a home in a suburban neighborhood for every black family who would like to move there. Then on top of that, they want to grant an amnesty for up to 20 million illegal aliens, most of who would be classified as members of minority groups, who would also become eligible for a government purchased and maintained home in the suburbs.

It will be interesting to see a single female with 3 children, no job, benefits including medicaid, food stamps, section 8, an Obama cell phone, and other subsidies, move into a suburban community where the houses run from $250K to $750K and the taxes on the properties alone start at $5K annually. Just wondering who will pay? The Federal Government can track all they want, but SOMEONE has to pay for the upscale movement. This program was planned long ago in the Obama Administration and they just have to figure out the way to get it paid for. Going to be a lot of lawsuits over this one when the current homeowners meet the new neighbors who aren´t paying for ANYTHING.

This is just another intrusion and reduction in local government authority. Washington must be Absolute. And it cannot err.

A look ahead:

Gradually the feds will decide about zoning, allowed home size, building permits, and set diversity quotas for family sizes, single mothers, races, sex, sex orientation, ages, immigrants, and do whatever else they think might crush the spirit.

Those promoting the absolute state regard such programs as tools. Each devised to further diminish what an individuals can do until each feels they can do nothing but obey.

We can already see that Climate Change will become a public health concern. Thus an individual may be spreading a plague by setting the thermostat too high in winter or too low in summer.

Obesity can be criminalized as a harm to others. You will be given a body operating plan and you better follow it. Your diet will be mandated.

Local authorities often welcome such controls, and the grant money that comes with them. They think they will be enforcing the new regulations. Later they will learn the feds control them too. They will be the gerbils in the shinier cages.

This policy doesn´t take into account the basic rule: good, hardworking people = good neighborhood.

A good neighborhood doesn´t have to be wealthy, or even upscale. I lived in many blue-collar working class neighborhoods--they were all good, and safe, with good schools. No one expected anything for free.

A couple of years ago there was this multi-page ´survey´ sent out asking all sorts of questions about what size your house was, how many bedrooms, who spoke what language, etc. The purpose of the thing was ´for better planning´. Needless to say, I never filled the thing out. Another one came a month or two later, also not filled out.

Watch the movie ´Dr Zhivago´ to get a good look at how this central planning works, comrade.

That´s a trick question, right? After all, the White House along with those 2 brain cell cretins in the Democrat Party shoved Obamacare down our throats and better than half of America´s voting public actually bent over and said , stick it in even further. Those same voters will simply KY up and take more of what the idiots in Congress and the White House dish out. Short of a French Revolution type of revolt in this county, turn out the lights, the party is over.

Well, that didn´t take long. As my colleague Edward Malnick reports, the first gay Church of England priest – a canon, no less – today married his boyfriend. Canon Jeremy Pemberton, 58, a divorced hospital chaplain and father of five, wed his long-term partner Laurence Cunnington, 51. We´re not told where, but obviously it wasn´t in an C of E church. That´s against the law. But they may well be able to have their marriage blessed in church because that´s only "against the rules" as opposed to illegal. Campaigners predicted that Canon Pemberton would be the first of many. I think

A mention of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R), a potential 2016 presidential contender, brought boos from a conservative crowd in New Hampshire on Saturday. Speaking at the New Hampshire Freedom Summit, a gathering of conservative activists and figures organized by Americans for Prosperity and Citizens United, billionaire Donald Trump said Bush’s recent comments on immigrants coming to the U.S. as an “act of love” were “out there.” “You know, I heard Jeb Bush the other day,” he said, with quiet boos and angry murmurs erupting from the crowd at the mention of Bush’s name. “And he was talking about people that come

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

The departure of Kathleen Sebelius from President Barack Obama’s cabinet removes a focal point for criticism over Obamacare’s troubled rollout, right at a moment when the White House can blunt attacks with enrollment numbers that exceeded targets. Senate confirmation hearings on the president’s choice to succeed Sebelius as Health and Human Services secretary, budget director Sylvia Mathews Burwell, will give Republicans days of media exposure for their criticism of a program that remains unpopular. Those hearings will now be held months ahead of midterm congressional elections, helping diminish the impact on voters. Sebelius’s departure also addresses demands from some Democrats for a change

BUNKERVILLE -- The gathering of rancher Cliven Bundy´s cattle in northeast Clark County has been stopped by the director of the Bureau of Land Management. Bundy is meeting this morning with Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie to discuss a possible solution to his dispute with the BLM. Metro Officer Jesse Roybal confirmed that Gillespie was in the Bunkerville area this morning to meet with Bundy. The BLM had been using contract cowboys to round up Bundy´s 900 head of cattle that have been grazing over 600,000 square acres in northeast Clark County for more than 20 years without his payment of grazing fees.

Gov. Chris Christie, R-N.J., turned down the opportunity to bash the mainstream media on Friday, when interviewed by Fox News host Megyn Kelly. Kelly pointed out, during a part of the interview aired on Friday, that there was an unprecedented volume of negative media coverage surrounding the bridge controversy in New Jersey. "Has this changed your view of the mainstream media?" she asked. "No, I´ve always had the same view," Christie said, pointing out that anyone can be the "flavor of the month" in the media. "But I´ve always said to my folks in the party, we don´t get anywhere complaining about it either,"

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

As President Obama spoke of old "wounds” at Fort Hood this week, the White House declined a request from a survivor of the 2009 massacre there to meet with Obama for a few minutes so the veteran could explain face-to-face how he believes the government has mistreated and disrespected the victims of that attack. Staff Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford (ret.) was shot seven times in November 2009 when Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan opened fire at Fort Hood, killing 13 people. Despite Hasan’s admission that he carried out the attack on behalf of the Taliban and revelations that he had been

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

Coming clearly through the throbbing of helicopters and the roar of the SUVS of the feds harassing the Cliven Bundy Ranch, patriots there for Bundy should “tell it to the judge”. There is mainstream media-suppressed case history in Nevada the feds are desperately trying to keep under wraps. Chief Judge Robert C. Jones of the Federal District Court of Nevada smacked down high-handed, abusive feds, sending the pretend cowboys riding roughshod over Western ranchers and property owners back to their cobweb-laced offices in 2013. In spite of their 200 armed snipers with boy toys in tow, those Stetson-wearing feds hunkering down on Cliven
