HUD Two, Three, Four; We Will Make You Support the Poor

Even as Detroit crumbles, a victim of its own government programs, the Department of Housing and Urban Development has announced a new map-targeting program that will use census data and the latest technology to determine the demographic make-up of every town and city in the United States.  Where it determines that there are too many white people and not enough Black, Hispanic or Asian, the government will displace the white people and move the minorities in.  Or just as likely, simply move enough minority people in until the town has the “right percentage” of minorities; their fair share. first broke the story, which was later reposted by The Blaze:

“To ensure that ‘every American is able to choose to live in a community they feel proud of,’ HUD has published a new fair-housing regulation intended to give people access to better neighborhoods than the ones they currently live in.

“The goal is to help communities understand ‘fair housing barriers’ and ‘establish clear goals’ for ‘improving integrated living patterns and overcoming historic patterns of segregation.’

“’This proposed rule represents a 21st century approach to fair housing, a step forward to ensuring that every American is able to choose to live in a community they feel proud of – where they have a fair shot at reaching their full potential in life,’” said HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan.

“’For the first time ever, Donovan added, ‘HUD will provide data for every neighborhood in the country, detailing the access African American, Latino, Asian, and other communities have to local assets, including schools, jobs, transportation, and other important neighborhood resources [read “taxes” or “welfare”] that can play a role in helping people move into the middle class.”

“According to HUD, long-term solutions include ‘helping people gain access to different neighborhoods and channeling investments into under-served areas.’ The mapping tool may guide development and zoning decisions, for example.

“In a July 16 speech to the NAACP, Donovan said the American Dream still isn’t within equal reach of all communities. He lamented the lack of diversity in America’s boardrooms, schools, and the nation’s ‘strongest neighborhoods.’

“’We have got to shape a future where ladders of opportunity are available for all Americans,’ Donovan said. ‘For African Americans, this is critically important.  Historically, for this community, the rungs on these ladders have been too far apart -– making it harder to reach the middle class.’

“Donovan said HUD’s new neighborhood mapping tool, which uses Census data, will ‘expand access to high opportunity neighborhoods and draw attention to investment possibilities in under-served communities.’

“’Make no mistake, this is a big deal,’ Donovan said. ‘With the HUD budget alone, we are talking about billions of dollars. And as you know, decades ago, these funds were used to support discrimination. Now, they will be used to expand opportunity and bring communities closer to the American Dream.’

“Under the Fair Housing Act, HUD requires grantees, such as cities, that receive federal housing funds to ‘affirmatively further fair housing.’

“Under the proposed rule, the neighborhood data provided by HUD will be used to evaluate patterns of integration and segregation, racial and ethnic concentrations of poverty, and access to ‘valuable community assets.’  HUD wants to know if existing laws and policies — such as zoning, financing, infrastructure planning and transportation — create, perpetuate or alleviate segregation.

Translated, this rule will allow the government to seize any property and take control of it, and raise taxes to drive out homeowners and replace them with minority residents.  Homeowners are being taxed on the sale of their house at the present time (under Obamacare, of all things).  The new HUD ruling takes us a step closer to the China plan, where residents only own their homes as long as they live in them.  They can make a trade, but they cannot leave their property to their descendants.  Well, according to my niece-in-law, no one actually owns any land, only apartment or condo units.  But even these, she cannot inherit.

All this harkens back to Agenda 21.  As early as 1993, according to Myron Orfield in “Metropoltics:  A Regional Agenda for Community and Stability,” Progressives were already plotting the remapping of suburban neighborhoods.  In 1993, the Metropolitan Community Stability Act was passed in Minnesota, encompassing six regional reform bills for fair housing, metropolitan structural reform, reinvestment, land use planning, transportation and transit, and well fare.  A tax base-sharing bill was introduced in 1994.  All the bills except the reinvestment bill were voted on and passed both houses of the state legislature…

“The centerpiece of the three bills that formed the deconcentration-reinvestment leg of the MCSA was the Comprehensive Choice Housing Act” designed to force the suburban communities to “meet their fair share” of the unmet need for affordable housing in the Twin Cities area.”

“Three requirements were imposed:  to reduce unreasonable barriers to affordable housing in its zoning codes, development agreements, and development practices; to comply with the efforts of public or private developers whose projects would help the city achieve its goal; and to ensure that the affordable housing remained affordable.  This last requirement addresses a common ‘subterfuge’:  building affordable housing but later turning it into expensive units at market rates.

David Rusk, author of “Inside Game, Outside Game:  Winning Strategies for Saving Urban America,” published in 1999, quoted Christopher B. Leinberger, then the managing partner of Robert Charles Lesser & Company, “the largest independent real estate advisory firm in the country.”  Leinberger expected “suburban-character, third-generation metro cores to decline slowly.  Part of the reason is racial.”

“Research has shown that the white population has an aversion to shopping or living in a community where there is more than a 20 or 25 percent minority population,” wrote Leinberger.  “Whenever a community or shopping center goes over the line, it becomes virtually 100 percent minority very rapidly.  This kind of change generally affects a metro core in the demographics of the shopping centers and malls and then the rental apartment housing stock.  Both can change very quickly…In an overbuilt local rental apartment market, for example, owners can offer minority occupants low rents in a better neighborhood than they live in.  Where this has occurred, the new minority residents have tended to have children who attend the local elementary schools initially.  White flight from the district occurs, generally in a rolling fashion as the minority children get older and enter junior and senior high school.  The impact on the surrounding single-family housing, which almost exclusively will have a majority white population, and the office market is delayed.  There has not been enough experience around third generation metro cores to document this impact or how fast it occurs.  Conventional wisdom, however, suggests that there will be a decline in values, white flight from the neighborhoods, and a movement of office users to alternative metro cores when their leases, which generally average five years in length, expire.”

HUD’s website posted an announced on its Neighborhood Stabilization Program 3.  Guess the first two were failures, programs that included billions of dollars to Detroit.

“The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 provided an additional $1 billion for the Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) that was originally established under the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008.  HUD will award grants to 270 states and selected local governments to mitigate the negative impact of the nation’s economic decline and housing market collapse and to stabilize and revitalize communities/areas hit the hardest. The regulations for NSP3 can be cited at 75 FR 64322.

NSP3 funds were allocated by a formula based on the number of foreclosures and vacancies in the 20 percent of U.S. neighborhoods (Census Tracts) with the highest rates of homes financed by a subprime mortgage, are delinquent, or are in foreclosure. The minimum grant amount was $1 million for non-state grantees and the basic allocation is adjusted to ensure that every state receives a minimum of $5 million. The net result is that these funds are highly targeted to communities with the most severe neighborhood problems associated with the foreclosure crisis.  To find information on individual NSP grantees, including action plans, quarterly performance reports, and contact information click here.

Target- Area Mapping Widget

This tool assists NSP3 applicants to prepare data to submit with their grant application by allowing applicants to draw the exact location of their target neighborhood. The tool will then calculate the number of housing units, Neighborhood NSP3 Score, and State Minimum threshold NSP3 score of the area drawn, and produce a report that the grantee will receive via email within 24 hours. The report will contain all necessary data for the NSP3 application, along with information HUD can use to confirm the intended program area. The applicant should then submit this document with their grant application. This report also provides local housing market and economic data for the target area that can help guide grantees’ NSP3 program development and implementation. Data downloadable by state showing the foreclosure risk score, LMMI area benefit, address vacancy, and other information for each block group can be found here.

Under NSP3, grantees have 2 years from the date HUD signed their grant agreements to expend 50% these funds and 3 year to expend an amount equal to these allocations.

This is the ultimate in socialist engineering:  mapping every town and city and determining where residents may or may not live.  If this be not Communism, then nothing is.  Decent, hard-working citizens will be forced to live in dangerous, run-down, litter-strewn ghettos.  If Mohammed can’t bring the citizens to the ghetto, then he’ll bring the ghetto to the citizens.

The rubble that is the once-great city of Detroit is our future.  Even middle-class Blacks wouldn’t live there.  According to Glenn Beck, the number of vacant homes in Detroit isn’t 78,000; it’s 99,000.

Here in the suburbs of New Jersey, the minority population has doubled in a short space of ten years.  While litter has been around forever, you don’t notice until it begins to grow exponentially, like a town’s poverty-level population.  At 40 miles an hour, you don’t see it.  When you’re jogging at 3 m.p.h., it’s hideous.

When I started out on my jogging/walking exercise program, I intended to simply do some running, then walk for awhile until my oxygen intake resumed, then run again for awhile.  As I jogged along, I kept losing my concentration.  As I ran, I passed piles of garbage along my route:  discarded water bottles, soda cans, beer cans, tiny liquor bottles, cast-off candy wrappers, newspapers, sales circulars.  Yuck.

I kept running past it, trying to concentrate on my exercise regimen.  But there came a time when I just couldn’t ignore it any longer.  I began picking the stuff up, a little at a time, until I reached the nearest trash can.  There are no trash cans along Ringwood Avenue or the Hamburg Turnpike.  But every few feet, there are trash barrels along Wanaque Avenue, Pompton Lakes’ business district.

The east side of the street was a disaster.  So was the bus stop near the bridge over the Wanaque River.  I’d made a project of cleaning up that area earlier and it seems to have remained fairly clean once I trashed the trash.  I figured what was good for the New York City bus stop was good enough for the entire route.

Especially bad were the easternmost entrance to the A&P Shopping Center, which took me three days to clear of all the debris, and all the soda and beer cans in the sewer grating across the street from the bus stop at the river.  In total, I hauled about five bags of trash.

People stopped and stared.   You could see it on their faces:   “Ewww!  What’s she doing?!”  Well, I don’t want the litterbugs to feel at home.  The main culprits are our Mexicano population.  But teenagers play a large share in the blame, too.  They’re particularly fond of the local Wendy’s.

Once I cleaned up a section, it stayed clean.  This week, the local Wendy’s began sending its crew outside to clean up the mess the teenagers made.  What is it with the teens?  I thought they were all about saving the planet and proud of their basketball skills to boot?  Yet, though the trash barrels were there, the soda cups and hamburger wrappers, ketchup packets and straws, were everywhere but the trash barrel.

Since I embarked upon this clean-up journey, I’m finding less garbage and more business owners cleaning up their parts of the sidewalk.  The A&P has now sent its crew out to sweep its parking lot.  One of the teenagers gave me a dirty look.

The message we want to give here is:  Pigs Are Not Welcome in Pompton Lakes.  It’s the minority population that’s main responsible for the cigarette butts littering Wanaque Avenue, a thing I absolutely refuse to pick up.  Think I’m “profiling.”  The discarded junk mail I picked up off the street this morning was a mighty big clue, addressed to an Hispanic litterbug on Cannonball Road (where there’s a big apartment complex).

Pompton Lakes wants to build more of these complexes.  In fact, they want to increase the rental units along Wanaque Avenue by a factor of four.  And the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has just passed a new law to help the Hispanics and whatever other low-life chooses to occupy our once clean little town.

At present Pompton Lakes’ minority population is at about 5 percent.  At that rate, we can handle.  Increase the population to 25 percent, and the garbage will mount to the point that it can no longer be managed.  There won’t be just solitary piece of garbage in front of the Pompton Lakes Business District sign across the street; there’ll be a mountain of garbage.  More poor minorities, bringing their bad habits with them.

Some whites, rich enough to afford to do so, will flee.  The government will allow just enough of them to leave to “balance out the population” until the minorities are a minority in name only – 49 percent.  The rest of the white people will virtually be imprisoned in the town in order to support the minorities and their government enablers.

Every town and city will be Detroit.  There will be no escape, no “white flight” this time, nowhere for decent people to live.  Property values will plummet.  There won’t be any place to move to because the next town will be the same graffiti-marred, crime-ridden, garbage dump slum that you moved away from.

The city was founded in 1701 by French officer Antoine de La Mothe Cadillac as a settlement called Fort Ponchartrain du Detroit.  The city’s name originates from the Detroit River (French: le détroit du Lac Érié, meaning the strait of Lake Erie).  The irony is that France offered free land in an effort to attract families to Detroit, which grew to 800 people in 1765, the largest city between Montreal and New Orleans. By 1773, the population of Detroit was 1,400. By 1778, its population was up to 2,144 and the third largest city in the Province of Quebec.

The Pompton area was founded by refugees from the city of Newark, Puritans and Puritan converts to other Protestant religions, who fled when, as the city grew, they found themselves facing an increase in strangers, stragglers and squatters, and a commensurate increase in criminal activity.

The government can try to hold us hostage to parasites.  But freedom will prevail, even if we have to build a spaceship to get away.

  1. The city of Detroit receives funding to improve housing for residents from various sources. Programs aimed at improving living conditions in neighborhoods throughout the city are funded with grant money from the city, state and county levels of government.

    • No matter what agency the money is filtered through – federal, state, county or municipal – it still comes out of the taxpayers’ pockets.
