  • When the Dream of Owning a Home Became a Nightmare

    When tens of thousands of African-Americans held the keys to their first homes in the early 1970s as part of a new federal program that encouraged black homeownership, they thought they were about to fulfill the American dream. Instead they got an American nightmare. The story begins with the urban uprisings of the late 1960s, which were reactions to decades of poverty, racism and a lack of opportunity. According to the Kerner Commission, a major cause was government-sponsored housing segregation that had confined African-Americans to rental housing in urban neighborhoods while subsidizing white flight to the suburbs. Black people, too,...

    Now we have some Democrats calling for Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson to resign. I know what you’re probably thinking. Anyone who’s been following American politics at all for the last three years knows that Democrats calling for someone in the Trump administration to resign basically means it’s another day ending in a Y. But this dust-up has at least a bit of a twist to it.During a HUD staff meeting in San Francisco, Carson was addressing the staff and dropped a comment regarding transgender individuals. He included the phrase “big hairy men” entering women’s shelters...

    Kansas City officials, using a new housing inspection law, have moved residents out of a troubled Northland apartment building where they found roaches, severe plumbing problems and other dangerous health violations, the Health Department announced in a news conference Wednesday. In the building, city officials and elected leaders said they saw caved-in ceilings, mold and damp carpets. During their visit Friday, they walked through human excrement in an apartment where sewage had backed up into the toilet, sinks and bathtub. Disgusting is the best way I can tell you what I saw, Councilman Dan Fowler, who represents the area, said...

    The television images of homeless adults, tent cities, discarded drug paraphernalia, and filthy conditions in Americas urban landscapes are shocking. The homeless people in these scenes didnt grow up saying, I cant wait to become an addict and live on the street. Clearly, several things went wrong over the course of their lives. For many living on the streets, the path to homelessness started early, with childhood trauma and adverse experiences. For example, in Santa Clara County, just south of San Francisco, 78 percent of homeless adults grew up in a household with a person with drug or alcohol dependence;...

    Housing and Urban Development official Lynne Patton implied Hillary Clinton was involved in Jeffrey Epstein's death by suicide. Patton reacted to the news of Epsteins death on Instagram, posting a screenshot of an article about Epsteins suicide with the caption, "Hillaryd!!" "P.S. Let me know when Im supposed to feel badly about this #VinceFosterPartTwo," Patton added. Pattons hashtag refers to Vince Foster, who served as deputy White House counsel under former President Bill Clinton. Foster died by suicide in 1993.

    <p>Dr. Ben Carson was thrown out of Sandtown yesterday, ostensibly for failing to get permission from the Morning Star Baptist Church of Christ to hold a press conference on a vacant lot owned by the church. The truth, not revealed elsewhere, is that none of the money announced by the Director will be used for the part of Baltimore that has been featured in reporting and discussions by President Trump.</p>
  • And With That Decision, Maybe We Know Why Elijah Cummings' Baltimore District Is A Nightmare

    President Donald Trump and Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) were the focal points of a social media duel, where the president trashed the Maryland Democrat for presiding over a city that’s totally in a state of disrepair. Cummings’ district encompasses a portion of the city, which Trump described as rat-infested, crime-ridden, and not hospitable. Of course, whatever Trump says has to be attacked—even when it’s true. The racism allegation was lobbed again. It fell flat with those with cognitive function…again. Normal people don’t care—and those who are curious will find out that the city is a mess. The residents agreed with Trump’s...

    Maryland Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings declined an offer to tour a Baltimore Housing and Urban Development (HUD) facility with HUD secretary Ben Carson on Wednesday. HUD invited Cummings to tour the facility with Carson on Tuesday, however Cummings rejected the invitation, the Daily Caller has learned. When asked about Cummings absence at a press conference, Carson said that he did not know why Cummings did not attend the tour but guessed there may have been a scheduling issue. The Daily Caller reported exclusively on Tuesday that Carson would visit Baltimore in the wake of President Donald Trumps tweets calling the...

    Housing shortages are plunging New York City and Los Angeles into crisis. Affordable rents are scarce. Families are doubling up. Shelters are jam-packed. And over 100,000 people are sleeping sprawled on the streets of these two cities. The waitlist for public housing is over four years long in LA and staggering 10 years in New York. These lists would be even longer if public officials hadn't closed them to any new applicants. Nationwide, an estimated 32,000 public households are being taken up by illegal immigrants. It's a powerful reason why the Trump administration is giving illegals 18 months to get...

    Ben Carson has fired back at Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Mich., after the controversial freshman congresswoman criticized him after a hearing Tuesday. Omar knocked the Housing and Urban Development (HUD) secretary over his conduct during an appearance before the House Financial Services Committee. "Not sure he was fully awake, maybe he meant to reclaim his time back to sleep," she quipped. She was playing off of Carson's request for time during a testy exchange with Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass.

    Tweets and videos at link. Things got very testy between Housing and Urban Development Secretary Dr. Ben Carson and House Democrats. Carson received some ridicule in the media for mistaking a housing term for an Oreo cookie. Cortney has more : Chairwoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) set the tone by accusing Carson of leading an agency that is "actively causing harm," sentiments that were shared by other Democrats on the panel. "It pains me that your gifted hands are doing the bidding and carrying the water of what I believe to be one of the most morally bankrupt president's history," Rep....

  • DUH: HUD Housing Should Put Americans First

    We no longer live in a constitutional republic. We live in an idiocracy. Only in modern-day America, under the Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives, is the basic proposition that federally subsidized public housing should benefit American citizens and legal residents slammed as "despicable" and "damaging." Those are the hysterical words used by Democratic Rep. Carolyn Maloney of New York City to condemn the proposal discussed by Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson on Tuesday to ban government aid to residents of HUD who shelter illegal immigrants. The rule change would end a Clinton-era regulation that allowed immigrants to obtain...

    The Department of Housing and Urban Development proposed a new rule Friday to make people seeking housing assistance have to prove their legal status, in a move that could oust thousands of illegal immigrants. Secretary Ben Carson said the rule would bring policy into compliance with the law, which generally tries to restrict public benefits to citizens and legal residents. There is an affordable housing crisis in this country, and we need to make certain our scarce public resources help those who are legally entitled to it, Mr. Carson said. When the Washington Times broke the news of the rule...

    How much are illegal aliens costing Americans? Even the housing cost alone is incredible. Last month, I revealed that the Trump administration had moved to block illegal alien DACAers from getting taxpayer subsidized mortgages. Under Obama, FHA rules had been bent so far backward that people who were not only non-citizens, not only non-permanent residents, but werent even legally here, were having taxpayers guarantee their mortgages. The December letter by Senator Menendez, who had recently been on trial for corruption charges, Senator Booker, on whose watch the $100 million poured into Newark public schools dissipated, and Senator Cortez-Mastro, who had...
  • Carson Fights Discrimination On Facebook And The Democrats Who Advocate For Big Tech

    The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), under the direction of Dr. Ben Carson, is taking aggressive legal action against social media platforms for enabling online housing discrimination. Democrats, meanwhile, are pushing flawed legislation that would only increase the power and influence of their Big Tech allies. The contrast highlights just how beholden Democrats have become to support Silicon Valley giants such as Facebook and Google. Last August, HUD launched a Fair Housing Act complaint against Facebook based on its advertising practices. Facebook is the worlds largest social media company and, together with Google, forms the great internet duopoly...

    A recovering addict, Lynne Patton advised Trumps campaign on minority outreach and now works at HUD calling attention to appalling public-housing conditions. When Michael Cohen testified before the House Oversight Committee last month, the most dramatic moment was a sideshow in which the protagonistLynne Patton, a supporter of President Trumpremained silent. As Republican Rep. Mark Meadows challenged Mr. Cohens claims that Mr. Trump is a racist, Ms. Patton, who is black, rose and eyed the witness with a disappointed glare. That prompted a diatribe from Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib: Just because someone has a person of color, a black person,...
