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.

JUST IN->  Pelosi Announces House Resolution To Condemn Trump’s ‘Racist, Xenophobic Tweets’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Monday that Democrats will offer a resolution condemning President Donald Trump’s “racist” tweets against Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Pelosi wrote a letter to House Democrats announcing that they will draft a resolution to condemn Trump’s “racist” tweets against progressive Democrats.

“This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote.

“This morning, the President doubled down on his attacks on our four colleagues suggesting they apologize to him,” she added. “Let me be clear, our Caucus will continue to forcefully respond to these disgusting attacks.”

President Trump taunted the “squad” of far-left first-term progressive Democrats on Sunday, telling them to go back and fix the places they came from before telling the rest of the country what to do.

Trump’s tweets caused an uproar amongst the media and Hollywood celebrity classes, and now, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D–TX) hopes to capitalize on the president’s message by condemning them in Congress.

Lee said she will draft a resolution of condemnation.

“Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee will be drafting a Resolution of Condemnation for the words used by President Trump about four members of the House of Representatives over the weekend,” Jackson Lee’s office wrote:

So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly......

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

President Trump’s remarks seemed particularly directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is a former Somalian refugee.

Omar said Friday that the president “shouldn’t be in office” and told an audience of high school students that America was failing to uphold its promise to be a just society.

Rep. Omar said Trump was “stoking white nationalism” after he tweeted that some progressive congresswomen should “go back” to where they came from.

“You are stoking white nationalism because you are angry that people like us are serving in Congress and fighting against your hate-filled agenda,” Omar wrote:

Ilhan Omar  @IlhanMN


As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States.

Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1150381394234941448

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez claimed Monday that President Trump’s remarks serve as the “hallmark language of white supremacists.”

President Trump tweeted Monday that Democrats need to apologize for the “foul language” and “terrible things they have said”:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.
