Department of Housing and Urban Development
Vouchers and zip codes don't pull people out of poverty, income does. Financial success requires attitude, skills, and opportunity. Today, HUD and the administration are in the position to work with Congress to provide all three.
HUD’s upward mobility programs are bound to fail because they contain no mechanism for helping people build economic success. Rather than accept the fundamental truth that mental attitude and job opportunities are key to financial advancement, HUD always seems to conclude that financial lack is the result of discrimination.
Much of the chaos we see in America today is designed to stop President Trump from dismantling the federal system of rampant waste, dishonesty, and bullying. The largest “swamp” he must drain is the embedded federal bureaucracy.
Now that Dr. Ben Carson has accepted Donald Trump’s offer to join his administration as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development we hope he understands that running HUD isn’t brain surgery, but it will still require a team of skilled surgeons, like Wendell Cox, and CHQ contributors John Anthony and Tom DeWeese, who know the issues and are prepared to excise the cancerous anti-constitutional policies Barack Obama has put in place.
During his campaign, Donald Trump talked about “draining the swamp.” Much of the swamp is in the federal agencies, such as the Department of Housing and Urban Development, and their penchant for sub rosa regulation.
If Obama has his way our American form of representative government will be replaced by non-elected regional councils and dictated to by a central government. That Free Enterprise will be replaced with fascist-style public private partnerships as international corporations will use their influence with government to stomp out mom and pop stores; government agents will join in group hugs with Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and corporate presidents as they carve up the goods of our once free society.
Professor Paul Ehrlich of Stanford University explained the goal of Smart Growth and the UN's Agenda 2030 best when he said, “A massive campaign must be launched to de-develop the United States. De-development means bringing our economic system into line with the realities of ecology and the world resource situation.”
The Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Rule is federal enforcement of Sustainable Development Smart Growth Cities. Until now there was at least a pretense that Smart Growth development was a local process. Now, through the revelation of AFFH, it is clear that such development is a top-down dictatorship, overseen by Obama's Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
New HUD policies will track the "diversity" of each neighborhood. Areas that don't meet the "standards" established by O cronies could face consequences.
