With urban murders up 38% in 2020, the second Black Lives Matter murder boom has no doubt cost urban Democratic voters tens of billions in lost property values. But the Biden Administration is working on boosting the property values of Democrats in the big cities via population transfers of urban blacks to traditionally Republican suburbs and small towns. So, the Obama era fed program with the Daffy Duckish-sounding name of Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing is back. From the New York Times news section:

Biden Moves to End Justice Contracts with Private Prisons

The president’s latest batch of executive orders takes steps to promote racial equity.

The moves are incremental pieces of President Biden’s broader push for racial equity, an initiative that is expected to be a centerpiece of his administration.

By Jim Tankersley and Annie Karni
Jan. 26, 2021, 5:55 p.m. ET

… The housing order directs the Department of Housing and Urban Development to more strenuously enforce the Fair Housing Act of 1968, which targets discrimination in home buying. That includes asking the department to review actions under Mr. Trump that sought to weaken some of that enforcement. Last year, as part of Mr. Trump’s attempted appeals to white suburban voters, the department rolled back an Obama-era program meant to fight racial segregation in housing, known as Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing.

“This represents a clear change of direction that gets us back on track to fulfill the Fair Housing Act,” said Julián Castro, who served as secretary of housing and urban development under President Barack Obama. “It’s sending a very strong signal that it’s a new day when it comes to fair housing and that HUD is going to be aggressive again. In some ways this is the easy part, but it’s a strong first step.”

Mr. Castro said that the housing department was still far behind in terms of the number of personnel it needed to enforce the Fair Housing Act and that nonprofit groups across the country working on fair housing issues should receive federal funding and other resources. But given that the action came on Day 6 of the new administration, he said, it served as a “clear repudiation of Trump’s fear-mongering” about low-income housing invading white suburbs.

In other words, yeah, we really are going to increase low-income housing invading white suburbs, but you aren’t going to give us any lip about it, you potentially unemployable racist, now, are you?

  1. Fair Housing Act

    Memory is hazy, but I bet there’s some time in the distant past when “Fair Housing” policy actually had something to do with Fair Housing.

    Now, of course–in common with most if not all legislation–it’s primarily about “Get Whitey” which really should be the name of both political parties at this point.

    Eh, actually I think the fair housing act has always been about "get whitey."

    The argument went something like: Whites are hogging all of the good schools in their neighborhoods and that's unfair. You aren't against fairness, are you?

    It’s got to start unraveling soon.

    In 1980 the national debt was ~$900 billion. Then we had Reagan and wild ass military spending, tax cuts, and financialization of the economy and 30 years of funding the government by debt and now the outright national debt is $22.7 trillion.

    Almost a decade ago a Boston University economist estimated total U.S. debt and obligations at $222 trillion.

    AFFH has already come to the City of Randolph, Morally Superior, where neighborhoods bordering AFFH apartment blocks have their BLM signs on the front yard.

    The same City of Randolph, where Mayor Rhodes-Conway-Lightfoot-Pugh-Durkan fired the police chief who was speaking Truth to the Gang Power?

    Where neighbors gather to talk in amazement about "skyrocketing" house prices in the neighboring City of Upton, offering a theory of "good schools" while being clueless about the sordid history and cancellation potential of that phrase?

  13. The National Fair Housing Alliance blames the 2008 financial crisis on “discriminatory practices” and thinks the solution is more diversity (more blacks and browns getting special favors which was a major cause of the 2008 financial crisis). The government makes stupid diversity policies, banks do them even though they are stupid, the economy crashes, the government bails out the banks, time passes and we go back to the beginning and more “the government makes stupid diversity policies”. It is the cycle of life

    Hakuna Matata! (Diversity)
    What a wonderful phrase
    Hakuna Matata! (Diversity)
    Ain’t no passing craze
    It means no worries
    For the rest of your days
    It’s our problem-free philosophy
    Hakuna Matata! (Diversity)

    Diverse, inclusive communities with access to good jobs, schools, health care, transportation, and housing are crucial to our nation’s prosperity in the 21st century. A hard-learned lesson from the recent economic crisis is that when some of our communities are targeted for discriminatory practices, all of our communities are harmed. Our global competitiveness is challenged when all of our communities do not have the opportunity to succeed together.

  31. The core–and animating–principle of minoritarianism is the right of minorities to glom onto the majority’s stuff.

    If you are off minding your own business, enjoying your own culture in your own community … you are an “anti-Semite”, a “racist”, a “xenophobe”, a …. really bad person. Deplorable in fact. You do not have the right to be left alone. You must let the minority in. (As i’ve noted before minoritarianism is the ideology of the rapist.)

    This attack should make it ever more clear: Separate nations!

    You simply can not keep anything nice, can not live in a community preserving your culture, while minoritarianism reigns. Minoritarianism simply can not abide people organically working out what is best for them and living how they want to live.

    We need “conservatives” willing to fight on this terrain–take minoritarianism on straight up. In other words we need “conservatives” who actually want to conserve something.

    Penn dental school declares war on anti-LGBTQ bias with new fund

    The school’s new LGBTQ+ Fund has been launched with a $50,000 gift from an alumnus, who was not identified in last week’s news release celebrating its establishment. The fund has “the goal of identifying LGBTQ+ based biases in the dental profession and ways to dispel them.”

    “Understanding the root of homophobia, transphobia, and bias related to actual or perceived sexual orientation and/or gender identity requires intentional study,” Penn Dental dean Mark Wolff said in the press release. He did not explain how these issues related to the study of dentistry.

    Dentistry, with its emphasis on the oral orifice of the digestive system, to the exclusion of the anal orifice, is inherently biased. Because all orifices are created equal, dontcha know?

    The correct course of action to this injustice is to require all colleges and universities that have schools of dentistry to have schools of proctology as well.

    I don't see that something like Bitcoin has any intrinsic value. People buy it because they think the price will go up and they can sell it at a profit to someone else. It's been going up because of the Fed induced inflation and people buying it to sell it later to others but there is no guarantee that will continue. Nothing continues forever so you would have to just be lucky and get out before the crash. If it crashes, it could go all the way down to zero. At least stocks, gold, industrial metals and agricultural commodities have some value so you are less likely to lose all your money if you invest in those.
    , @El Dato
    @Mr. Blank

    My take is that "cryptocurrency" is not an asset - just a money transfer scheme that alos has some momentary (although entirely imaginary) price tag.

    The only difference to fiat money is that it becomes harder and harder to mine. In particular because mining now costs serious amounts of energy that has to be paid for.

    The problem is that you are guaranteed to be even able to sell when there is a crash. You need to find someone who will perform the computation on your queued request. Which will be at the back of the queue. Aieee.

    If you are an ultra-conservative investor and you want safety (against the dollar losing value), why would you look at crypto instead of precious metals?

    , @R.G. Camara
    @Mr. Blank

    Investing in gold & silver isn't that much different from investing in crypto. Do you really understand how to mine for precious metals, and could you do it? Do you know how to make fine jewelry and computer parts from them? Do you make huge amounts of money off your gold & silver buys?

    No, the average investor (myself included) doesn't. But we buy gold & silver anyway because we know enough that it's value is solid.

    Same with cryptocurrency. And crypto, like gold & silver, is nothing more than a hedge against the dollar.

    Blockchain & cryptocurrency aren't terribly hard to understand, but it does take a bit. I suggest reading articles and watching YouTube videos on blockchain and cryptocurrency so you can understand the basics. a few weeks and you'll know enough to know it. And never trust any article by a guy trying to sell you something. I recommend Aaron Clarey on Youtube ("Captain Capitalism") as a starting point, he's not selling crypto, but he does buy a bit of it as a hedge, and explains it decently.

    Basically, every cryptocurrency is separate. Bitcoin is not Ethereum is not Litecoin, much like the British Pound is not the Japanese Yen is not the Mexican Peso. These are crypto-currencies, not stocks. And there are hundreds of cryptocurrencies out there----some are far more solid than others. Exchanges and wallets (you'll learn about those) also vary in reputation and trust. So with each crypto, you must individually research it, the same as you would for each stock you invest in.

    Now, right now it's clear to me there's a bubble going on in crypto; there will be a market correction. It reminds me a lot of the dotcom boom of the late 90's, where putting the letter "e" in front of any company, speaking some jargon, and having a nice website were all you needed to get people to throw money at you. Lot's of charlatans out there trying to rip off people for a buck, but there are good solid investments out there. It's the wild west, you must be smart.

    That said, I think long term crypto will be as part of our culture as the internet. And if you have to flee an area, crypto is far easier to transfer than physical gold & silver. The internet remained after the dot-com bubble burst as good companies made it. Same with crypto.

    And right now, with Biden set to massively expand the money supply and double the minimum wage nationally, and with chaos in American streets, and with Biden having been installed in a coup and constantly needs 25,000 troops in DC to ensure his presidency---the U.S. dollar is looking very weak to me (I'm not a professional financial expert, so this is just my personal opinion).

    I expect that when the violent chaos breaks out in the Biden years---and I am sure it will, in some form---the dollar will fall and crypto will rise, if only because people will seek out something more secure than the American dollar backed by a government that looks like its not in control and primed to fall.

    I've bought a low-level amount of crypto and precious metals this month and plan to dollar-cost average it out each week. Basically, the same amount I buy in precious metals is the amount I'm buying in crypto. Of course, firearms, ammo, and stored food are also important nowadays as well to "invest" in as well in these times.

    Bottom line: If you're hedging against a falling dollar, buy crypto as you would gold & silver, but do a few weeks of research first before you jump in. Don't be scared, its not that hard, just watch out for the bubble scams and buy good crypto.

    N.B.: Crypto comes with tax issues, as the IRS does not consider it the same as buying stocks. So watch out for that.

    During the later Obama years some localities goosed up vouchers, to super vouchers. This allowed section 8 holders to move to more upscale properties.

    In Chicago, they eliminated the super vouchers after a black resident on a super voucher killed a white paying resident at their luxury building’s gym.

    https://www.chicagoreader.com/chicago/cha-supervoucher-program-fair-housing-integration-controversy/Content?oid=21891804



    But Lorena (who asked to be identified by her middle name because of the stigma attached to subsidized housing), was one of the lucky few supervoucher holders. Lorena was able to transfer a housing voucher from her hometown of South Bend, Indiana, to Chicago after finding a job working for a property manager in Lombard. Thanks to her excellent credit and good track record with landlords, her Chicago voucher wound up covering $2,605 a month, allowing her to consider buildings as nice as this one.

    When the building rep took Lorena up to the 32nd floor and showed her a two-bedroom apartment, she was sold. "I was like, I don't even need to see any more units, this is it," she recalls. From the kitchen and living room windows she could look out on Washington Street and see Millennium Park. "I had never lived in a high-rise. It was just so nice," she says. There was a master suite with a bathroom, and her 16-year-old son, Doane (also his middle name) would have his own room and bathroom as well. Lorena applied on the spot and was approved. Six weeks later, on a snowy January day in 2014, she and Doane moved in.

    If you want security, stay out of crypto. It’s very volatile and weak hands don’t do well. I’ve made 10x my investment in crypto, but that’s only because one coin went up 2000% while the others I was invested in lost over 90%.

    Market is also at all-time highs so bad time to buy. The time to buy was two years ago when crypto was boring and the prices were low. But unlike everything else in life, most people want to buy investments only when they’re expensive.

    Investing in gold & silver isn’t that much different from investing in crypto. Do you really understand how to mine for precious metals, and could you do it? Do you know how to make fine jewelry and computer parts from them? Do you make huge amounts of money off your gold & silver buys?

    No, the average investor (myself included) doesn’t. But we buy gold & silver anyway because we know enough that it’s value is solid.

    Same with cryptocurrency. And crypto, like gold & silver, is nothing more than a hedge against the dollar.

    Blockchain & cryptocurrency aren’t terribly hard to understand, but it does take a bit. I suggest reading articles and watching YouTube videos on blockchain and cryptocurrency so you can understand the basics. a few weeks and you’ll know enough to know it. And never trust any article by a guy trying to sell you something. I recommend Aaron Clarey on Youtube (“Captain Capitalism”) as a starting point, he’s not selling crypto, but he does buy a bit of it as a hedge, and explains it decently.

    Basically, every cryptocurrency is separate. Bitcoin is not Ethereum is not Litecoin, much like the British Pound is not the Japanese Yen is not the Mexican Peso. These are crypto-currencies, not stocks. And there are hundreds of cryptocurrencies out there—-some are far more solid than others. Exchanges and wallets (you’ll learn about those) also vary in reputation and trust. So with each crypto, you must individually research it, the same as you would for each stock you invest in.

    Now, right now it’s clear to me there’s a bubble going on in crypto; there will be a market correction. It reminds me a lot of the dotcom boom of the late 90’s, where putting the letter “e” in front of any company, speaking some jargon, and having a nice website were all you needed to get people to throw money at you. Lot’s of charlatans out there trying to rip off people for a buck, but there are good solid investments out there. It’s the wild west, you must be smart.

    That said, I think long term crypto will be as part of our culture as the internet. And if you have to flee an area, crypto is far easier to transfer than physical gold & silver. The internet remained after the dot-com bubble burst as good companies made it. Same with crypto.

    And right now, with Biden set to massively expand the money supply and double the minimum wage nationally, and with chaos in American streets, and with Biden having been installed in a coup and constantly needs 25,000 troops in DC to ensure his presidency—the U.S. dollar is looking very weak to me (I’m not a professional financial expert, so this is just my personal opinion).

    I expect that when the violent chaos breaks out in the Biden years—and I am sure it will, in some form—the dollar will fall and crypto will rise, if only because people will seek out something more secure than the American dollar backed by a government that looks like its not in control and primed to fall.

    I’ve bought a low-level amount of crypto and precious metals this month and plan to dollar-cost average it out each week. Basically, the same amount I buy in precious metals is the amount I’m buying in crypto. Of course, firearms, ammo, and stored food are also important nowadays as well to “invest” in as well in these times.

    Bottom line: If you’re hedging against a falling dollar, buy crypto as you would gold & silver, but do a few weeks of research first before you jump in. Don’t be scared, its not that hard, just watch out for the bubble scams and buy good crypto.

    N.B.: Crypto comes with tax issues, as the IRS does not consider it the same as buying stocks. So watch out for that.

    During the later Obama years some localities goosed up vouchers, to super vouchers. This allowed section 8 holders to move to more upscale properties.

    In Chicago, they eliminated the super vouchers after a black resident on a super voucher killed a white paying resident at their luxury building’s gym.

    https://www.chicagoreader.com/chicago/cha-supervoucher-program-fair-housing-integration-controversy/Content?oid=21891804

    But Lorena (who asked to be identified by her middle name because of the stigma attached to subsidized housing), was one of the lucky few supervoucher holders. Lorena was able to transfer a housing voucher from her hometown of South Bend, Indiana, to Chicago after finding a job working for a property manager in Lombard. Thanks to her excellent credit and good track record with landlords, her Chicago voucher wound up covering $2,605 a month, allowing her to consider buildings as nice as this one.

    When the building rep took Lorena up to the 32nd floor and showed her a two-bedroom apartment, she was sold. “I was like, I don’t even need to see any more units, this is it,” she recalls. From the kitchen and living room windows she could look out on Washington Street and see Millennium Park. “I had never lived in a high-rise. It was just so nice,” she says. There was a master suite with a bathroom, and her 16-year-old son, Doane (also his middle name) would have his own room and bathroom as well. Lorena applied on the spot and was approved. Six weeks later, on a snowy January day in 2014, she and Doane moved in.

  84. The US is now firmly on track as a fascist, totalitarian state. The perfect models for this are fascist Italy or Nazi Germany. I know wanna-be historians argue that “Nazi” is really “National socialist” which means “socialist” you dope. But in fact, after Hitler won the 1933 elections and became chancellor, his ditched the socialist part of his agenda, and focused on becoming partners with the big industrialists and the military aristocracy.

    Part of the fascist agenda is to break up all civilian groups and clubs that are not directly under the control of the government. This is, of course, also consistent with communist governments. Anyway, white suburbs are too conducive to group, ethnic, or regional identity. So, it becomes the priority of the fascist state to dilute any regional concentration of ethnics with “native” nationalities. The Chinese flooded Tibet with native Chinese. The Soviets flooded parts of Ukraine with “native” Russians. And on and on. So, it is important to the incoming administration to dilute any areas that might develop their own identity. Hence, the emphasis on bringing “diversity” to all areas. The consequent increase in crime, coupled with the coming crack-down on guns, will ensure a terrified population afraid to move outside of their fortified houses.
