Walking around New Orleans´ Lower Ninth Ward neighborhood, people are still angry at the impact of Hurricane Katrina and how unprepared the city was for the massive storm nearly 13 years on. But now some of their wrath is directed at Brad Pitt and his charity Make It Right. After the levees of the city´s industrial canal were breached, the Lower Ninth Ward of predominantly black and low-income families was decimated by the floods, with most houses swept away or left in ruins. Among the first to lend a helping hand was Pitt, who - along with his then wife Angelina Jolie - owned a house in New Orleans and set up the

Comments:
*charity have disappeared from New Orleans and some fear they will be forced to abandon poorly built properties

I´m literally speechless!! Certain areas of the country require specialized home designs for a reason - to withstand the weather conditions. It is a shame that Brad Pitt and his charity didn´t pay attention to this when they decided to used the 9th ward as a social experiment.

Please note proper way to split and post a Daily Mail (UK) excessively long headline. LCom Staff.

Looks like the wood wasn´t treated to withstand that type of climate. In any case, it´s a hurricane-prone area so eventually there will be another Katrina.

So he built a tad over 100 instead of 150 and he wasn´t qualified to vet contractors.

Beats the hell out of the proportional promise fulfillment of the Clintons in Haiti.

It would seem to me that he still did far more than the vast majority of well-heeled folks.

How do we know he wasn´t fleeced by the throngs of unscrupulous contractors who descended upon the scene to make a fast buck?

I´m no fan of the Hollywood elite and their insatiable thirst to feed their enormous egos but I´m not ready to reach unyielding conclusions in this case with what has been presented.

More coherent than most DM articles. I can´t understand where all that money went for 100 houses. (In fact the article doesn´t actually tell how much was spent.)

It looks like every house was a custom design. That alone would drive up every building cost.

And putting solar power on each house isn´t cheap even today. And a decade ago it cost much more.

I can´t blame Pitt. He got the organization running. It was natural that he would depart at some point.

Every other place affected by Katrina fixed things up and moved on years ago. The New Orleans welfare crowd still expects to be taken care of by someone. I´ll bet some of them are still squatting on that bridge, waiting for someone to rescue them.

So Brad Pitt "only" built 100 homes? If they were livable for even a few years it meant something. I am not a fan of the Hollywood people but this sounds like a much better effort than the Clintons´ millions that were never spent in Haiti. I wonder how much the occupants did to keep things up.

When will people take responsibility for their own situations? Thirteen years? C´mon!

Here´s an idea!
Let´s build 150 homes in an area below sea level, with a history of flooding. And instead of coming up with a practical cookie cutter design, let´s have lots of architects come up with ´unique´ designs.
Then let´s find 150 families stupid enough to buy those flood prone houses, with mold growing on the very first board nailed up!

Honestly, I think Brad Pitt had a good heart, but empty head, in doing this. I really believe he is one of the better people in Hollyweird, but still allows PC ideals to make him do really stupid things!!!!!

Anyone who has lived in the gulf coast area knows that you have to build with the proper materials to withstand the hot and humid weather, with all the corresponding mold, termites, etc, etc, etc. Many of those materials would certainly NOT be considered "green" materials!!!!!!! And you pretty much constantly need to be painting and replacing rotten boards to keep mold and moisture and creepy crawlys from ruining your house!!!

In this area of New Orleans, you have lots of poor people without the money or skills (and sadly, without the motivation much of the time) to properly maintain a nice house. Building those same houses out of "green" materials that certainly weren´t designed for the heat and humidity of New Orleans set them up for massive failure.

They should have built nice spec houses out of traditional building materials, and spent the extra money teaching them how to properly maintain their houses, and we wouldn´t be having these discussions today!!!

Looks like a perfect storm of shoddy materials, city officials on the take not doing proper inspections/permitting, and residents neglecting their properties. I think Brad Pitt honestly tried to help but the project was supervised by unqualified and/or dishonest contractors and government officials. It’s a shame but I’m not going to blame Pitt.

Throwing money at something does not mean it will work. If he really knew what he was doing, he would have stayed there and overseen the job until it was done. He was waaaaay over his head. Maybe now the liberal do-gooders will realize that throwing money to people who don´t know what they are doing doesn´t work. That is why so many government programs fail. He just has money to waste.

#8 - Brad and Jolie talk about donating to charity. Here´s how this works - they created their own charity. Lots of big shot actors have done the same. So when they donate to charity, they are donating to themselves. I´m sure that´s what he used for this. I know his heart was in the right place but sometimes things are not as easy as they seem. Stick to acting, Brad.

I saw pictures of those homes right after construction and they were already beginning to come apart.

Hillary’s claim that Kavanaugh would ‘turn

If a politician embraces a position that was offered as satire, does that officially make her “beyond satire”? A lot of people were taken aback by Hillary Clinton’s apparent contention that the Supreme Court would invalidate the explicit language of 13th Amendment and reinstate slavery, if Brett Kavanaugh were to be confirmed as a justice. What other possible interpretation cold there be, of her words: "You know, I used to worry that they wanted to turn the clock back to the 1950s. "Now I worry they want to turn it back to the 1850s.

Senator Chuck Schumer was asked a very awkward question in front of the Supreme Court Tuesday. The Democratic minority leader held a press conference in front of the Supreme Court to decry Trump’s pick for the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh has received scorn from liberals who claim he will overturn Roe v. Wade and repeal Obamacare. Before taking questions, Schumer attacked conservative outlets The Heritage Foundation and The Federalist Society for vetting the SCOTUS candidates and said Kavanaugh would be harmful to women’s health in America. The first question asked by a reporter was incredible:

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh allegedly mouthed the word “b*tch” at an image of Hillary Clinton during former President Bill Clinton’s 1997 State of the Union address. “I saw one of Ken Starr’s deputies, Brett Kavanaugh, who was sitting across from me, mouth the word b*tch when the camera panned to Hillary,” Media Matters founder David Brock wrote in his 2002 book Blinded by the Right.

Democrats could bring Judge Brett Kavanaugh´s confirmation process to a halt with one simple demand - his paperwork. And Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer vowed to oppose President Donald Trump´s nominee with ´everything I´ve got.´ Kavanaugh´s long record includes his 12 years as a judge with nearly 300 written opinions, a multitude of scholarly articles, a paperwork trail from his time in the Bush White House, and thousands of documents from when he served on the Starr investigation.

Nancy Pelosi Trashes June Jobs Report, Warns

Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) trashed the June jobs report — even though it showed rapid job growth, rising wages, and low unemployment. The report from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics showed that employers created 213,000 new jobs in June — 22,000 more than economists had expected. Manufacturing jobs in particular rose by 36,000. The unemployment rate rose slightly, from 3.8% to 4.0% — but that was partly because so many people are entering (or re-entering) the labor force.

Prince Charles and Prince William reportedly ‘snubbed’ the US President during his visit to Britain - leaving the Queen to meet Donald Trump alone at Windsor Castle. The royal father and son apparently shared their desire to not take part in the arrangements during informal discussions regarding the president’s four-day tour. Trump’s trip was not a state visit and so only the Queen greeted the president and his wife Melania. However even on working trips dignitaries expect to see more members of the royal family than only the Queen.

Judge Brett Kavanaugh is going into the Supreme Court confirmation process with a hail of rhetorical arrows zinging by him, including a phony letter-writing campaign aimed at unsuspecting American newspaper editors. At least 21 papers were duped last week, including big-market brands like the Dallas Morning News and The Washington Times. They ran identical letters over a four-day period, each signed by a different person. The effort is an example of public-relations ´astroturfing,´ a technique meant to simulate genuine grassroots support for an idea or cause. The form letter is one small piece of the message minefield erupting around Kavanaugh

Michelle Obama has been spotted letting loose at Beyonce and Jay-Z´s concert in Paris with the former First Lady dancing up a storm. Mrs Obama and her 17-year-old daughter Sasha were among the famous faces in the crowd as they watched the power couple take to the stage for their On the Run II tour on Sunday night. Michelle and Sasha were snapped in the stands at the Stade de France by several excited fans before Beyonce and Jay-Z took to the stage. But when the duo´s concert kicked off, Sasha was no where to be seen and Michelle was spotted mingling with

Watching FBI agent Peter Strzok battle with Congress, my initial reaction was pure anger. His repeated, arrogant insistence that he had done nothing wrong despite tons of evidence to the contrary convinced me he deserved immediate firing — if not the firing squad. Gradually, though, anger gave way to amazement as Strzok grew increasingly combative and condescending. Given his predicament, the sneering and smirking were stupid, and yet he persisted. Who is this jerk, I wondered, and how in the hell did he get to be a big shot at the FBI? And why are taxpayers still paying for the privilege of

A 13-year-old girl in Alabama was beheaded because she saw her Sinaloa Cartel-associated granny stabbed to death by drug traffickers, authorities have said. Mariah Lopez, 13, and her grandmother Oralia Mendoza, 49, were killed on June 4 in Moon Cemetery outside of Huntsville, Alabama, prosecutors revealed in court on Thursday. The new details in the case came in a hearing for 26-year-old Yoni Aguilar, who along with 34-year-old Israel Palomino is charged with two counts each of capital murder in the slayings. At the hearing, investigators testified that the grandmother Mendoza had ties to the Sinaloa Cartel,

Moscow - When President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia sits down with President Trump in Helsinki, Finland, on Monday for a meeting he has long wanted, he will already have accomplished virtually everything he could reasonably hope for. All he really needs to make his meeting with Mr. Trump a success is for it to take place without any major friction — providing a symbolic end to Western efforts to isolate Russia over its actions against Ukraine in 2014, its meddling in the United States election in 2016 and other examples of what the United States Treasury Department has described as Russia’s “malign activity” around the

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ripped the Trump administration on Friday during a teachers union conference in Pittsburgh. Speaking to thousands at the American Federation of Teachers Convention, Clinton expressed her disdain over multiple Trump policies. The ongoing issue of migrant family separations at the border goes beyond politics, she said, adding that it was disgraceful, inhumane and indecent. President Trump signed an executive order in June to allow migrant children to stay with parents who were caught crossing the border illegally. Clinton went on to say that the administration wants to transform the

Long-simmering ethnic tensions in a party increasingly defined by identity politics could erupt if Nancy Pelosi’s mental decline forces her to bow out of her leadership of the Democrats’ House Caucus. With African-Americans the largest loyal base constituency, the fact that there has never been a black minority leader, much less speaker, the choice of her successor could split the party. Potentially at stake is the Speakership that could result if the longed-for Blue Wave produces a Democrat House majority. Kyle Olsen of The American Mirror red flags Pelosi’s latest lapse into incoherence at a podium. Speaking to reporters Thursday, Pelosi suffered
