Obama’s latest Rule: Control of Zoning laws, and a ‘Refugee’ in your neighborhood

It was only a matter of time until this regime got their grimy little fingers into our Zoning Laws, and it looks like they figured out a two-fer with this one. Not only will be they able to inject the so-called “refugees’ into every nook and cranny of our towns and cites, under the threat of lawsuits they will have their way in which we determine how we live. How many towns will be willing to front millions of dollars to fight the government? Section 8 housing, coming next door to you real soon. Anyone want to bet they will go after GOP towns and cities? Got to get the Dem voters in there don’t you know. Here we go:

The Obama administration, in July 2013, quietly introduced a new regulation that critics say will dramatically increase Washington’s power over local zoning laws in every city and town that accepts federal block grants through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

The proposed rule, which is set to take effect in October, would put teeth on the Fair Housing Act of 1968 by providing a set of standards, guidelines and goals, then use data to “measure” and “assess” how well a local community is meeting its Fair Housing obligations.

Disparate impact is a legal doctrine employed by the Fair Housing Act that says any policy can be labeled as discriminatory if it has a ‘disproportionate adverse impact’ against any minority group.

“The way it would work, any zoning that would have a disparate impact on immigrant communities, despite their being based on sensible reflection of good faith and people just wanting to make sure their communities are protected, would be impacted by these regulations,” Fitton said.

For example, if a city’s zoning laws favor home ownership as opposed to renting or favor single-family homes over multifamily apartments, it would be susceptible to allegations of a disparate impact on minorities. That could trigger a lawsuit, which then forces a zoning change and construction of new Section 8, government-subsidized apartments in middle-class suburban neighborhoods.

And it’s the federal grants that could be used as a hook in the nose of these cities, forcing them to house illegal immigrants against their will.

Some are calling it the “Common Core of local zoning” that has flown under the radar for nearly a year. Instead of the U.S. Department of Education dictating education standards to local school districts, this rule change would allow HUD to influence zoning laws from the biggest cities down to the tiniest towns.

HUD’s proposed “Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Rule” showed up in the Federal Register on July 19, 2013. The rule has the backing of special-interest groups that promote open borders. One such group, with close ties to President Obama, is the Council of La Raza, which filed a public comment in favor of the rule.

Malaysian plane crashes, Rebels confess, Obama parties on – Audio

While Dear Leader fills the Democratic coffers and dines on Burgers while Mooch is not around, the world continues to go down the crapper.  I caught Obama’s first embarrassing remarks regarding the crash while he hung out on the 495 bridge outside Wilmington, Delaware. Oh, he was a real joker.

Here is how it should have gone. The full talk was 17 minutes. He cancelled his vacation and came back to the White House.

What the heck, this is the real joke. This demonstrates our Savant in full dress mode with Romney during just a smidgen of time ago during a debate

Federal funding doubled to La Raza after VP joined administration

The point of this post is simply to demonstrate that what we have going on has and is a planned invasion. No more, no less. Just in case anyone still believes what we have on the border is helpless,hapless kids running from whatever. You by now know the drill about La Raza. So just let me give you this.

Federal funding surged to a radical immigration group under the Obama administration after a former top member of the organization joined the Obama team in 2009.

In 2009, Cecilia Muñoz was appointed as the Deputy Assistant to the President and Director of Intergovernmental Affairs in the Obama administration. She served in this position until January of 2012 when she became the President’s Domestic Policy Advisor and the Director of the Domestic Policy Council, a position which coordinates the domestic policy making process in the White House.

Muñoz is the former Vice President for the Office of Research, Advocacy, and Legislation  for the National Council of La Raza (NCLR), one of the most radical groups today behind the push for a compete overhaul of the United States immigration system. She is married to Amit Muñoz-Pandya, a human rights lawyer and former counselor to the Open Society Institute, which was established and funded by liberal billionaire George Soros.

Prior to Muñoz  joining the Obama administration, La Raza received $4.1 million in federal funds. When President Obama brought her aboard in 2009, he issued a special “ethics waiver” since it violated his lobbyist ban. In 2011, it was reported by Judicial Watch that between 2009 and 2010, the funding increased from $4.1 million to $11 million — more than doubling and nearly tripling.

Having any thoughts on Mitt Romney yet? He foretold the events in Iraq

The more I hear from Mitt, the more sensible he sounds as a potential candidate in 2016. The clips below say all we need to know about Obama, and gives us a good look at an observer of the world by Mitt. It took Ron Reagan a couple of tries. Maybe time for an adult in the White House? What say you?

Mitt Romney warned that if the U.S. completely withdrew from Iraq, it would crumble and for that Barack Obama called him a foreign policy novice. Islamic militants have thrown Iraq into a tailspin and the country is on the verge of an all-out civil war. So, we have to ask, who’s the foreign policy novice now? Romney was right. Obama was wrong…again.

 



“A few months ago when you were asked what’s the biggest geopolitical threat facing America, you said Russia…the 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because the Cold War’s been over for 20 years.”

Obama spoke as well that Romney wanted to go back to the 1950’s economic policies.

Yes, I would like go back to the economic policies of the 1950’s. Thank you very much.

Obama: ‘I didn’t want to leave troops in Iraq but it’s their fault I didn’t

Liar, liar pants on fire. A few clips just for the memory.

Obama, Romney Clash Over Status of Forces Agreement in Iraq


Now today.

Obama: It Wasn’t My Decision to Pull Troops Out of Iraq . The first couple of seconds are all it takes,

Good ole Joe

“I am very optimistic about — about Iraq. I mean, this could be one of the great achievements of this administration. You’re going to see 90,000 American troops come marching home by the end of the summer. You’re going to see a stable government in Iraq that is actually moving toward a representative government,” said Biden.

“I spent — I’ve been there 17 times now. I go about every two months — three months. I know every one of the major players in all of the segments of that society. It’s impressed me. I’ve been impressed how they have been deciding to use the political process rather than guns to settle their differences.”

Obama re: Iraq- tells leadership: ‘I don’t need your stinking approval’

Just a photo-op at the WH for our Commander in thief. I wonder if Boehner questioned Obama on his perspective. This from no less than CNN. The truth of the matter, “Clueless” is remaining clueless. So much for equal branches of government. Congress gets the finger once again.

Washington (CNN) — I’ll let you know what’s going on, but I don’t need new congressional authority to act, President Barack Obama told congressional leaders Wednesday about his upcoming decision on possible military intervention in Iraq.
The White House meeting sounded more like a listening session for the top Republicans and Democrats in the House and Senate about options for helping Iraq’s embattled Shiite government halt the lightning advance of Sunni Islamist fighters toward Baghdad that Obama is considering.

Obama “did not give us an array of actions he was planning to take,” Pelosi said. “He just talked about his perspective on what was happening there.”
A few hours earlier, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey said they were working out details on possible U.S. steps that could include airstrikes on Sunni militants advancing through northern Iraq.

Obama says no to drones for Iraq, no worry, Iran begins help -UPDATE

Another Obama  cluster …k. Obama loves his drones, but it apparently it is more important to act like an a** and disregard all the blood and treasure given in Iraq. But this was the bad war, Bush’s war. Afghanistan is doing so much better. But not to worry, Iran is moving in to help out. The militant group, even too violent for al Qaeda, begins their move. Obama’s dilly dally decision-making once again.

Update: Our savant Biden:

“I am very optimistic about — about Iraq. I mean, this could be one of the great achievements of this administration. You’re going to see 90,000 American troops come marching home by the end of the summer. You’re going to see a stable government in Iraq that is actually moving toward a representative government,” said Biden.

“I spent — I’ve been there 17 times now. I go about every two months — three months. I know every one of the major players in all of the segments of that society. It’s impressed me. I’ve been impressed how they have been deciding to use the political process rather than guns to settle their differences.”


So Iraq is about to fall. The caliphate begins. Good luck with this one.

Iraq asked U.S to bomb staging areas before they took mosul, of course, Obama said no

As the threat from Sunni militants in western Iraq escalated last month, Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki secretly asked the Obama administration to consider carrying out airstrikes against extremist staging areas, according to Iraqi and American officials.

A spokeswoman for the National Security Council, Bernadette Meehan, declined to comment on Mr. Maliki’s requests and the administration’s response, saying in a statement, “We are not going to get into details of our diplomatic discussions, but the government of Iraq has made clear that they welcome our support” in combating the Islamic extremists.

“Iraqi officials at the highest level said they had requested manned and unmanned U.S. airstrikes this year against ISIS camps in the Jazira desert,” said Kenneth M. Pollack, a former C.I.A. analyst and National Security Council official, who is a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution and who visited Baghdad in early March. ISIS is the acronym for the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, as the militant group is known.

 But not to worry, Iran has offered to help out.

Obama plans on deploying the military in USA in cases of flu

So one can laugh at this and claim it is the tin foil hat brigade at it again. The other possibility is to read the original documents and shiver at the thought of what this regime claims as its authority.

It’s bad enough that the federal government is building up weaponry, ammunition and SWAT teams, it also has a plan to deploy soldiers in the case of a major flu outbreak.

The flu?

That’s right, reported Cheryl Chumley, the author of the new “Police State USA: How Orwell’s Nightmare is Becoming Our Reality.”

She pointed to a page posted online by the Defense Department that outlines the federal government’s options in case of a flu outbreak.

Question: What is DoD’s role if there were a pandemic influenza outbreak within the United States?

“Military assistance for civil disturbances” is among that “tasks” the Defense Department would perform “in a pandemic influenza outbreak within the U.S.”

Other tasks include “quarantine assistant to civil authorities,” “mortuary affairs,” “continuity of operations/government,” “protect defense critical infrastructure,” “biosurveillance, disease detection, and information sharing,” and “medical intelligence.”

“The idea of our nation’s fighting forces coming into our communities and kicking off biosurveillance missions, dressed in full battle gear, is something right out of a science fiction drama,” said Chumley.

“It’s bad enough we learn that a 2010 Pentagon memo allows the president to dispatch unarmed drones over American skies and order soldiers to dispel civil uprisings, under certain circumstances. But unleashing the military for a flu epidemic?”

Supreme Court allows NDAA ‘Indefinite detention’ of Americans to stand May 1, 2014

From  August, 2012 post:  Obama fights injunction against unlawful detention of U.S. citizens

On May 16th,federal judge Kathleen Forrest granted a preliminary injunction to plaintiffs in a lawsuit filed against Barack Obama and the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (NDAA),striking down those sections of the Act that provide the president the power to indefinitely detain American citizens without benefit of their 5th and 6th Amendment rights. As a reminder, keep in mind it was Obama that insisted that the language in the NDAA bill include Citizens: Obama lies-he insisted that detention of Americans be in defense bill

“But… It was his administration that insisted that the language be included in the bill”.

From the video: Senator Carl Levin (D-Mich.) told Congress recently that under the original wording of the National Defense Authorization Act, American citizens were excluded from the provision that allowed for detention. Once Obama’s officials saw the text though, says Levin, “the administration asked us to remove the language which says that US citizens and lawful residents would not be subject to this section.”

Under the terms of the Act,Obama had been given exclusive authority to direct members of the US military to arrest and imprison anyone he believed to have “substantially supported” al Qaeda,the Taliban,or “associated forces.” When pressed by plaintiff’s attorneys about the practical extent of this authority,government lawyers admitted …the NDAA does give the president the power to lock up people like journalist Chris Hedges and peaceful activists,” admitting that “…even war correspondents could be locked up indefinitely under the NDAA.”

Yet incredibly,when pressed on the issue,this Obama mouthpiece suggested to Judge Forrest that concerns about the president’s detention powers were excessive as American citizens would,after all,have the ability to file a writ of habeas corpus should they be illegally or improperly jailed! “How long does [such a] petition take,” asked Forrest? When Torrance refused to answer,the Judge continued,“Several years,right”?

Obama to implement two tier race based government in Hawaii

Of course another dump on the Friday before Memorial Day. Does anyone still wonder what the intentions of this regime are? Balkanize our country at any cost. Recall reparations for Hawaii have been in the mix for years. Fortunately, we reclaimed the House and staved off this little number, but now Obama now will use his Pen and Phone. Recall earlier:

40 square miles for Hawaii and Reparations too!

The legislation, known as the Akaka bill after its lead sponsor, Sen. Daniel Akaka, D-Hawaii, has a long history. The bill would provide a road map to gradually establish a Native Hawaiian government.http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/58620
 
Once established, the Native Hawaiian government would negotiate with the state and the federal government over which assets it would own. Currently, the state administers 1.2 million acres of former monarchy land. Some of that land, which is quite valuable, could eventually revert to the new government

Now back to the story:

President Barack Obama’s administration has quietly suggested it is willing to create a two-tier race-based legal system in Hawaii, where one set of taxes, spending and law enforcement will govern one race, and the second set of laws will govern every other race.

The proposed new legal regime for Hawaii is sketched in a federal document released Friday, dubbed an Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking.

“The Secretary of the Interior is considering whether to propose an administrative rule that would facilitate the reestablishment of a government-to-government relationship with the Native Hawaiian community,” said the document.

The goal, it claimed, is “to more effectively implement the special political and trust relationship that Congress has established between that [Hawaiian] community and the United States.”

The move is likely intended to protect lucrative financial set-asides for Americans who are also part of the Hawaiian racial group, said Heriot.

The diversity proposal is portrayed as an effort to create a separate in-state government for people who are “native Hawaiians.”

If Obama succeeds, “what’s to prevent creating similar [self-governing racial] groups out of say, Cajuns, or Orthodox Jews or Amish?” said Gail Heriot, a commissioner on the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights.

“If you can do that with groups that are already part of the mainstream, you can balkanize the country,” said Heriot, who is a law professor at the University of San Diego.

U.S. soldier shot in Bill Cinton’s Kosovo war – anyone care? Anyone recall?

Let’s s see. Which President started this War? Clinton? Yes, we are still there.

A Kiel, Wis. native who was serving in the Army in Kosovo has died.

Scott Ruh tells WLUK-TV his 33-year-old daughter, Sgt. Heidi L. Ruh, died Friday. The military told the family she was fatally shot while on base, according to fox11online.

 Just what are we doing for the so-called “world Peace? We have 120 military installations world-wide with hundreds of thousands of troops in an attempt to keep the world at relative peace.Yet we are more disrespected and hated than at any time that I can recall.

Now Obama is more than happy to move us on to Africa. Back in 2012 I posted  3000 U.S. soldiers on their way to Africa Bunkerville   Now we are on to rescuing a couple of hundred school kids.

 Obama’s secret war under the U.N. Of course it always starts out with “advisors” now doesn’t it.

Members of the public haven’t heard of PSD-10, but they may have heard of a decision Obama made on October 14, 2011, when he informed Congress that he had authorized “a small number of combat equipped U.S. forces to deploy to central Africa to provide assistance to regional forces that are working toward the removal of Joseph Kony from the battlefield.”

Army Times: A brigade of 3,000 US soldiers will be deployed to Africa to battle terrorism and hunger or whatever. I think this about sums it up.

“As far as our mission goes, it’s uncharted territory,” Hogg said from his headquarters in Vicenza, Italy

Though U.S. soldiers have operated in Africa for decades, including more than 1,200 soldiers currently stationed at Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti, the region in many ways remains the Army’s last frontier. 

Roughly 3,000 soldiers — and likely more — are expected to serve tours across the continent in 2013, training foreign militaries and aiding locals.

As part of a “regionally aligned force concept,” soldiers will live and work among Africans in safe communities approved by the U.S. government, said Maj. Gen. David R. Hogg, head of U.S. Army Africa.

Not enough of what we are doing for the world?

 From Reaganite Republican‘s post “US Taxpayer-Funded Foreign Aid Received by 150/192 Countries in the World!”

 That’s us dishing-out an allowance to 
over 78% of the nations in existence…

 The interactive foreign aid map linked tells all… click on a country and all the relevant numbers come up. You can view each aid program individually, and there’s also useful “freedom”, “corruption” and “development” filters…

Now the gift of our most precious treasure. The life and blood of an American. The government refuses to talk about it,

A Kiel, Wis. native who was serving in the Army in Kosovo has died.

Scott Ruh tells WLUK-TV his 33-year-old daughter, Sgt. Heidi L. Ruh, died Friday. The military told the family she was fatally shot while on base, according to fox11online.

Ruh says officers came to his town of Newton home Friday afternoon with the news.

Joe Garvey, a spokesman with U.S. Army Europe, said her cause of death and circumstances are still under investigation.

The Associated Press reported Ruh’s body was found by a civilian at a running track at Camp Bondsteel in Kosovo, according to the Kosovo Force’s Multinational Battle Group-East.

Scott Ruh said his daughter had been in the Army for 11 years and was based out of Fort Hood, Texas. She worked in a medical unit, repairing surgical machines and volunteered to go to Kosovo in February.

The family plans a public memorial service once her body returns to the area.

Besides her parents, Ruh is also survived by two sons, ages 8 and 11.
