It seems many folks haven't been paying attention to what has been happening in Germany. Such a pity! They are opening the door to the overthrow of our country. Here's a preview.

Remember 9/11

America: Land of the free because of the brave.

Results from the 2012 presidential election have convinced me that a majority of American voters has decided, knowingly or otherwise, to let our beautiful country slip silently into socialism. This grieves me more than I can express. To see the government centralize power at the expense of individual freedom, to see it attack the wealthy and successful, to see it disrespect the U.S. Constitution, to see it fundamentally transform America before my very eyes make my heart break.

Now the November 2016 election is behind us, and I am heartened. Mr. Trump is no perfect candidate, but I'm impressed with what I see so far (in his first few months after being elected). I think in his determination to make America great again, he may indeed instigate conservative policies and do much good for the republic. Undoing much of what Barack Obama has done in his eight years will be a good start.

The Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) Rule,
by Tom DeWeese

Senator Mike Lee of Utah has just introduced a new bill to stop the AFFH Rule. This bill MUST be passed in Congress!

Last year, the HUD federal agency (Housing and Urban Development) began enforcing the "Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Rule,"(AFFH). This was Barack Obama's most radical assault on American private property rights and locally elected governments. It's actually worse than Obamacare!

The AFFH Rule is designed to destroy your property RIGHTS. The AFFH Rule will destroy your property VALUES. The AFFH Rule will destroy whole neighborhoods.

And the AFFH Rule will virtually erase the very concept of local rule by the people you have elected to run your city and county, overriding them through the dictates of federal agents.

Here are the facts.

Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing requires EVERY community that applies for HUD grants to perform massive demographic analyses locally and regionally to determine if there are enough low income and minority people living in every neighborhood. HUD will search the records of every person in each neighborhood for income levels, race, color, religion, national origin and much more.

If there aren't enough of each category to satisfy HUD's vague rules, HUD will claim that the community is in violation! Next, HUD will file law suits against the community to enforce its will. HUD is already doing this in many communities across the nation. This is social engineering at its worst.

And HUD will demand such an assessment of every neighborhood every five years! You will have no choice of the kind of neighborhood you wish to live in. You will see your property values plummet. Your equity in the home you have worked so hard to create will be lost.

And even worse, AFFH is the total destruction of your locally elected government. Home rule in America will die under AFFH.

If you think AFFH will not apply to your community, you are wrong!

It won't matter who you elect to city council or county commission. Even if you elect people who are opposed to AFFH and the HUD invasion.

HUD is already pouring over the last census reports to map out their strategy for your neighborhood. In each step HUD maintains control.

As I've been warning you about Agenda 21 for over 20 years, nearly every community in the nation has already put together their comprehensive plans to impose Sustainable Development Smart Growth policy that controls development, energy use, water use, and enforces public transportation over your private use of your car.

In every one of those communities that have put these plans in place, they have taken HUD grants to pay for it.

Now my worst fears have become reality. The federal government, through AFFH, is becoming nothing less than a dictatorship.

As I have issued my warning over the years, people laughed when I said Sustainable Development turned your communities into little Soviets? Well, here it is!

AFFH is redistribution of wealth. AFFH is destruction of private property ownership. AFFH is a top down dictatorship that destroys local control. But let's not beat around the bush. Let's call AFFH what it really is! COMMUNISM!

Can it be stopped? Yes! Here's how.

Senator Mike Lee is a huge opponent of the AFFH Rule. That's why, as soon as the new 115th Congress began, he immediately introduced the "Local Zoning Decisions Protection Act" (S.103).

The bill's specific purpose is to defund AFFH and restore local home rule to your city council and county commission.

Smiley Face


He Had It All
I talked to a homeless man this morning and asked him how he ended up this way.

He said, "Up until last week, I still had it all. I had plenty to eat, my clothes were washed and pressed, I had a roof over my head, I had TV and Internet, and I went to the gym, the pool, and the library. I was working on my MBA on-line. I had no bills and no debt. I even had full medical coverage."

I felt sorry for him, so I asked, "What happened? Drugs? Alcohol? Divorce?"

"Oh no, nothing like that," he said. "No, no . . . I was paroled."
