    TV star Steve Harvey is apparently pressing ahead with his commitment to help the Trump administration on its Housing and Urban Development initiatives despite the fierce backlash he received for meeting with then-President-elect Trump in January. In an extensive interview with the Hollywood Reporter published Tuesday, the comedian and Family Feud host revealed that he has been meeting with HUD Secretary Dr. Ben Carson to discuss building what he called “vision centers” in New York City, to teach STEM subjects and computer programming to children.
  • ‘House negroes stand up!’ Herman Cain tries a different approach to support Ben Carson

    Former black Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain tried to offer support to Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Ben Carson by telling all “house negroes” to “stand up” in a letter posted to his website. Cain called on “house negroes” to stand up in support of Carson after a Michigan Chronicle op-ed accused Carson of being a “house negro” following Carson’s defensive of President Donald Trump’s remarks on the Charlottesville riots. “If being called a ‘house Negro’ is what some of us must endure for succeeding in this nation and thinking for ourselves, then let all of the...

    A woman in Nashville, Tennessee reportedly stabbed her ex-boyfriend after he refused to cook for her, according to a Tuesday report from Fox News 17 in Tennessee. Stranesha Buford, 29, was arrested Monday for stabbing the victim in the left side of his back. According to Davidson County's Active Inmate Search online, she received a felony charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. An affidavit confirmed that the stabbing occurred July 26 at Buford's Dellway Villa apartment, which is listed as a Housing in Urban Development (HUD) apartment complex. The victim claimed that Buford asked him to cook her...

    [snip] The Department of Housing and Urban Development spent over $500,000 on apartments for people who "did not exist," ...and paid the complex $1.8 million between January 2013 and December 2015. [snip]..."Beverly Place's owner did not administer its project-based Section 8 program in accordance with HUD regulations," the inspector general said. "Specifically, the owner billed HUD for at least 97 tenants who did not exist or whose income eligibility was either falsified or unsupported." The inspector general noted that "nonexistent tenants" were ghost tenants
  • Their Public Housing at the End of Its Life, Residents Ask: What Now? (Cairo, IL)

    Cairo, Ill., has a population of fewer than 3,000 people. A plan to demolish two public housing developments would force many residents to leave and cut the school enrollment in half. ___ The authorities announced last month that the cost of fixing the developments was out of reach, and that replacing them altogether would cost almost 10 times as much. For hundreds of residents, the decision may mean not only leaving these crumbling buildings, but also moving from Cairo altogether. “For sure they needed to fix this place up a long time ago,” said Nena Ellis, 38, a mother of...

    Ald. Arena's Section 8 development means more crime, lower property values in Jefferson Park, says expert Crime Glenn Minnis James Bovard warns residents of Jefferson Park that they need look no further than the opposite side of the city to see what a proposed low-income, subsidized housing complex could mean for their neighborhood. The plan, backed by 45th Ward Alderman John Arena, would nearly double the amount of subsidized housing in the neighborhood. “It could be the Chatham aftermath all over again,” Bovard, a noted libertarian author and lecturer, told the Chicago City Wire. Chatham is a South Side neighborhood...

    Of all the federal agencies that ought to have their budgets zeroed out, HUD should be the first. There is no bureaucracy in the "anti-poverty" business that does more than HUD to take people perfectly capable of self-sufficiency and intentionally turn them into lifelong government dependents. And, in the "bang for the buck" category, no other bureaucracy could possibly outdo HUD for futility. No housing grant, subsidy or other initiative counts for as much as a penny in the income of any recipient. Therefore, if somebody was poor before receiving an HUD grant or subsidy, it is one hundred percent...

    Low-income Americans will no longer be passed over when the federal government pays the bill for construction projects, HUD Secretary Ben Carson said Thursday. Carson said using a rule that has been ignored for much of the past 50 years is part of his different approach to running the Department of Housing and Urban Development. “It’s not how many people we can get into public housing,” Carson said during an interview with Newsmax TV. “It’s how many people we can get out of it.”

    Famous TV personality Steve Harvey explained to TMZ on Wednesday that President Donald Trump is doing what he said he would do after their meeting in Trump Tower back in January. "As far as doing what he promised me he'd do, he's doing it," Harvey said in Beverly Hills. "I'm working with HUD (Housing and Urban Development). I'm getting housing for underprivileged people. We're going to set up centers around the country. It's going really well, and God willing it will work out." Harvey said he wasn't happy with everything President Trump was doing, but did admit that "He's keeping...

    Dr. Ben Carson has discovered over $500 billion (that's with a 'B') in errors and accounting mistakes during his audit of the Obama administration’s Housing and Urban Development budget. One of Dr. Carson’s first orders after being confirmed as the Secretary of HUD was a thorough audit of the agency, which has been accused of fraud and over-budgeted projects throughout the entire Obama administration. What did the auditors find? Over $520 billion in budgetary mistakes and clerical errors.

    IWB ^ | Mark Angelides
    If you’re not familiar with the recent report showing that there were over $500 Billion in accounting errors at the Department for Housing and Urban Development (HUD), that’s because the MSM have either ignored it, or played it down as a simple difference in accounting practices. The fact is, that HUD, like everyone else in the US is required to follow Generally Accepted Accounting Practices (GAAP) as required by the law. That they did not gives us the first clue. In 2015, the errors totaled $3.4 Billion, and in 2016, $516.4 Billion. This is quite an increase and should not...

    Is that what we’re calling it now? Let’s see if I have this straight. When men and women and children were kidnapped from their villages and separated from their families and packed into rickety ships for months at a time to be traded for tobacco and cotton and cloth and grain, that was immigration? When people were branded with hot irons like cattle on a ranch so that ownership of one human being by another human being would not be in dispute, that was immigration? When women were raped for no other reason than that it was Tuesday, or Friday...

    Massachusetts' very own profile in courage - U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren - Thursday voted against the only African-American nominee to Donald Trump's Cabinet, Ben Carson, who was confirmed as secretary of Housing and Urban Development. The funny thing is that Warren was pretty much OK with voting in favor of the former neurosurgeon back when his nomination was being considered by the Senate Banking Committee - a mere five weeks ago. In fact, at the time Warren wrote an extensive Facebook post, defending her support for Carson even though "he is not the nominee I wanted." "But 'the nominee I...

    Ben Carson is now officially confirmed as secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, following the Senate vote Thursday morning. The approval locks in one of the few remaining cabinet members left to be approved. The Senate floor voted the day before on the motion to invoke cloture on the nomination of Carson, passing the vote 62-37. The significant majority vote gave Carson a likely green light to be confirmed on Thursday. Despite a controversial start to his nomination, it turned out to be all bark and no bite as his hearing went fairly smooth. The former neurosurgeon...
