There Is a Real Chance to Stop Funding for “Sustainable Communities.



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Action Alert:

(This in from Virginia property

rights activist Cathy Turner)


 

The House of Representatives have cut funding from

Obama’s Partnership for Sustainable Communities program.

The program has been targeted for elimination from the

House FY 2012 spending bill.

 

Defunding Sustainable Development has also come through a

Department of Transportation bill, a draft of which completely

eliminates funding for what are called TIGER grants, which provides

funding for the largest grants through the Partnership for Sustainable

Communities program.

 

This is great news for those of us opposed to Sustainable Development.

It means less money and fewer weapons coming out of Washington, DC

to enforce this assault on property rights and America’s way of life.

 

Now the spending bill is moving to the Senate – the danger zone.

Sustainablists are planning a major push to get the Senate to replace

the appropriations for the Sustainable Communities budget.

The American Planning Association (APA) is leading the charge,

calling for massive pressure to be put on Senators in what the APA

is calling “Planners Day,” set for September 20th.

 

The APA’s message to the Senators is that the cuts

“ignores both our nation’s jobs crisis and the drastic

need for infrastructure investment.”

 

In fact, the House action is not only fiscally responsible in

a day when the government is completely broke, but it is a lie

that the program will help either jobs or infrastructure.

The exact opposite is true.

Sustainable Development is a jobs killer and it destroys infrastructure –

refusing to build roads, tearing down dams and the like.

 

We can strike a huge blow against Sustainable Development.

Action to take:

On September 20th, call both of your U.S. Senators and

demand that they maintain the House restrictions on the

Sustainability Planning grants and the caps on planning

expenses now called for in the Fiscal Year spending bill.

Tell them America cannot afford these grants.

The cuts will save billions of dollars and keep special interests

out of your community’s planning decisions.

Tell them you oppose Sustainable Development.

The Senate switchboard is (202) 224-3121

 

Make the calls and counter the impact of one of the nation’s

most powerful forces behind Sustainable Development (APA).

Win this fight and we will show that we are now strong enough

to turn the tide away from top down control and soviet-style

government – and towards freedom!

 

If you have a chance, call your Representative in the House

and thank them for standing firm against this Sustainable

Development monster. And ask them to continue to stand firm

if the final bill goes to a conference committee.

Defund Sustainable Development and strike a blow for fiscal

sanity and freedom.

ALERT ALERT

Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost

Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.

Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:

Joe Hoft@joehoft

Of course another @BarackObama lie. He can’t open his mouth without lying. 11 years ago the US lost (4.3) million jobs over the next 12 months. Horrible liar. https://twitter.com/barackobama/status/1229432034650722304 

Barack Obama  @BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.

Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.

Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:

Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)

The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:

In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.

When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
