Obama’s White House Rural Council Power Grab, posted with vodpod
THE PAST MEETS THE PRESENT:
Obama intends to do nationwide that which he did in Chicago. The project was a dismal failure and a fraud as all things Obama are. It left the quality of life for Middle Class and poor Chicagoans worse off than it was prior to the development of projects in which Obama’s friends Valerie Jarrett, Alison Davis and Tony Rezko were deeply involved.
“… a decision was made to close the Loop whose primary purpose was to shut out the poor from the City of Chicago by moving them further out of the City area so that the government could implement redevelopment projects for the City itself.
So the poor were moved out of the City into new developments and the people behind these new developments for the poor, while getting rich fast, allowed these properties to deteriorate by the refusing to maintain the properties.
It is bad enough that Obama played a role in gentrification under the guise of improving living standards and providing homes for the poor, the homeless and truly needy. History in America has proven that the poor never benefit from gentrification. What is even worse is that his buddies who were parties to this action refused to maintain the properties as obligated for which they received grants and subsidies for these developments.
These new found landlords allowed the deterioration and foreclosure of said properties which under their watch became inhabitable and were eventually condemned by the state….”
From its initiation, Obama and the Chicago thug factory profited enormously, as intended.
Two summers ago, I wrote a post entitled, Memo To Suburbanites: Government Doesn’t Want You To Live There Any More, warning Americans of the fate destined for rural communities in the United States should Barack Obama become president.
“…..The reality about Chicago is that Obama along with many in his administration failed the people of Chicago, laughed all the way to the bank and then had the gall to lay the blame for their failure on the backs and misery of the people of Chicago.
In the interest of their own selfish gains, this administration plans to repeat the same vile and disgusting offense on a nation level. The only difference is the packaging, but the endgame is the same.
History will repeat itself as Obama and minions will fail and they know it. However, they will successfully pocket millions if not billions in the process….”
THE ROAD TO SERFDOM:
Referenced in that post is a Washington Examiner article (excerpt below):
“If you like living in the suburbs, having your own little piece of God’s green Earth, and being part of the community schools, churches and civic groups, well, too bad because the ‘Smart Growth’ progressives in Congress and the National Reseach Council have a new report that shows how much better things would be if instead you and your family lived in an urban high rise….
Why would living in ‘denser environments’ be better? Well, for you and your family, it wouldn’t be, but it would be for Smart Growth progressives in and out of government because it would be so much easier for them to control how you and your family live.
Why? Well, just to take the first example that comes to mind, instead of relying upon a private car that can take you wherever you decide to go, you will have to use government-owned mass transit that only takes you where the government thinks you should be able to go.
And without independent mobility, you won’t have nearly as much freedom to do things like send your kids to a school you prefer instead of the government school closest to your high rise….”
Obama wants to turn the whole United States into one huge Marxist ghetto by fiat. This is definitely not the hope and change that indoctrinated, clueless and utterly ignorant Americans voted for. Indeed, this is a nightmare for all.
When this scam project fails, will the next step be to sell the country piece by piece as Daley, former Mayor of Chicago proposed to do? (see Daley Selling The City Piece By Piece…..Can This Be Implemented On A Nationwide Scale? What Are The Odds?).
