Can an Ulster County PAC Counteract Banking Pressure Favoring Public Housing

I sent the following message to a number of activists in Ulster County.  The push for public housing is likely linked to banking interests.  

Dear Friends:

I have been thinking about contributing to State Senator Bonacic’s Democratic opponent in the next election.  However, a political action committee (PAC) that would oppose candidates, Democratic and Republican, who implement, side with, fail to revoke, propose or support public housing and the kind of plan that the Olive Democrats have proposed (see attached), might be a better way to go.  I would be interested in discussing this idea with the local tea parties and other activists.  We are up against significant financial interests, specifically large regional and money center banks, who benefit from the comprehensive plans and RUPCO-style developments.   I draw this conclusion after an in-depth interview today with two RUPCO representatives.

I have been thinking about your excellent work respecting State Senator Bonacic and his involvement with the Regan developers and the comprehensive plan trend. I was similarly concerned about the heavy GOP presence at the LEED ceremony last summer on behalf of a corrupt Kingston developer who has been heavily involved with public contracts in Kingston.  Both Democratic and Republican parties are tainted, and a freedom-oriented movement needs to think about financially supporting opposition candidates, whether Democratic or Republican.

RUPCO told me today that Key Bank lent the $15 million for the Woodstock housing project and that on top of the low risk return the bank gets a tax credit under New York State law; RUPCO says that large, not local, banks tend to be the ones involved in financing the housing projects on which it works—the reason for the comprehensive plan push regionally may be related to this.  The contractors tend to be local, RUPCO said.  

Support for Olive style comprehensive plans and public housing trend has been bipartisan because of the money flows.  The banks and developers are fertile sources of political donations.  It is evident that significant financial interests are pushing for the plans and for increased public housing construction despite, or perhaps because of, the failure of the banking system and the housing bubble the banking system created and was bailed out of during the last decade. 

A PAC targeted at both Republicans and Democrats who support public housing and/or the kind of comprehensive plan that Olive has adopted may be necessary to combat the money flow into the coffers of the two parties.   Would your organization be interested in supporting this idea?  Would the other Tea Parties?  I believe that by working together we can identify candidates, Democratic and Republican, who ought to be defeated and then focus contributions intelligently.

Ron Paul Revolution

H/t Dave Grain on Facebook.  There was only one candidate in the last Republican presidential debate who favors freedom, reduced government, and the American way of life: Ron Paul.  The legacy media has done as much as possible to avoid discussing him, and his colleague/competitor Gary Johnson was blacked out of the GOP debate.

State Senator Bonacic (R-NY) Sees No Crime in Public Housing

Press on image to enlarge.

I received the following from Patriot246:

If you have read the links which I sent you earlier this week and if you have checked the elections donations websites for Senator Bonacic you will see the connection between this senator and Regan Development. We need to let Senator Bonacic know that we are aware of his continuing support for this Un-AFFORDABLE Housing Project. Please call him at 518-455-3181 or email him at 

 We suggest that you ask him the following questions:

1) "Does your support for the Dickinson's Keep project in Saugerties stem from your receipt of campaign contributions from Larry Regan? "

2. "Is Dickinson Keep being financed with our federal taxpayers dollars through Hinchey?"

3. " Why do you continue to support this project knowing it will dramatically increase the property tax burden on your Saugerties constituents and in some cases cause them to lose their own home in order to subsidize it?"

 I'd appreciate hearing the results of your call.

Together we can win this!!!

Cain versus Unable: 666 is 999 Upside Down

I'm not for Cain or Unable, but I found this picture to be interesting. From Wikipedia: In the Greek New Testament, Cain is referred to as εκ του πονηρου.[3] In at least one translation this is rendered "from the evil one",[4] while others have "of the evil one."[5] Some interpreters take this to mean that Cain was literally the son of the serpent in the Garden of Eden. A parallel idea can be found in Jewish tradition,[6] that the serpent (Hebrew nahash נחש) from the Garden of Eden was father to firstborn Cain.  Copied from Francisco M. Pohole's Facebook account.

Gus Hall to Run in Republican Presidential Primary: Opponents Call Him a Small Government Extremist

Gus Hall, once head of the Communist Party, USA, has returned to run in the Republican presidential primary.  "I am delighted to run against socialists of another school," Hall said.  Mitt Romney, Republican frontrunner, calls Hall a "small government extremist."  Romney adds, "Hall's a Tea Partier who wants to turn the clock back on government.  You can't cut government to the levels Hall advocates.  My friends on Wall Street won't stand for it. Who would bail them out?"

Hall has called for a tax plan similar to Herman Cain's 9-9-9 plan, but Hall's is a 4-4-4 plan.  "I see no need for government spending that would require 9-9-9," Hall insists.  As well, Hall has suggested that a Department of Education ought to be in the business of improving education. "We communists believe that government works."  In contrast, the Republican candidates support the Department of Education even though educational results have declined during its existence.

Hall agrees with Newt Gingrich that a central bank is necessary to a "progressive" or modern society.  After all, centralization of credit is plank 5 in Karl Marx's Communist Manifesto.  No wonder that Gingrich, Romney, Cain, Bachmann, and Santorum agree--centralized credit is necessary.

When asked what he'll do if he loses, Hall remarks, "I'll probably work on Wall Street.  They are the biggest supporters of all ten planks. They are socialists I believe in."

Pro-Obama Wall Street Demonstrators Are Anti-Semitic

The National Conference on Jewish Affairs has called for President Obama to denounce the prevalent anti-Semitism among the anti-Wall Street demonstrators. But they are supporters of President Obama.

Pathetic Crew of Republican Candidates are Big Government Drones

Unfortunately, CNN excluded one of the few imaginative voices in the Republican Party, Gary Johnson, from Tuesday night's debate.  Of the candidates present, only Ron Paul had anything to say in support of freedom and against socialism.  Cain's 9-9-9 plan, which would impose a sales tax on lower income people, is cruel. Rather than think of new methods of taxation, Republicans should be thinking of new ways to restrain spending.  Ron Paul was the only candidate at the debate who is not a socialist.

Ron Paul has a plan to terminate five cabinet positions:  the Departments of Energy, Housing and Urban Development, Commerce, Interior, and Education. He has also proposed to close a large number of unproductive military bases in places like Spain and Korea that do not protect the United States.  None of the other candidates was willing to discuss these proposals when Paul brought them up.  Instead, they remain loyal to a dishonest Federal Reserve Bank system that has sucked working Americans dry financially.  That Main Street Republicans support any among this bank of candidates is an indictment of the democratic process.

I can see why Comrades Gingrich, Romney, Santorum, Cain, and Bachmann remain silent about the Departments of Energy and Education.  Since they were established, education results have collapsed and energy costs have exploded, and neither agency, which together employ thousands of unproductive bureaucrats, has anything useful to say about either subject.  But this topic was avoided. To socialists like Gingrich and Romney, the Department of Education is a necessity.    

Mr. Cain, a former Federal Reserve official who has participated in the legalized theft involved in the bailout and the central bank-based fractional reserve system, offered a defense of  Wall Street, a socialist cancer on American capitalism.  Mr. Cain has participated in a racketeering organization, and his appeal to Republicans suggest a profound stupidity and incompetence among rank-and-file Republicans and the inept media that they consume, specifically including talk radio.

Except for Ron Paul or Gary Johnson, voting for a Republican in 2012 will be a wasted vote.

Sentor Bonacic Supports Unaffordable-to-the-Taxpayer "Affordable" Housing

H/t Patriot246

Wurtsboro – Construction has barely begun at the Horizons at Wurtsboro senior citizen housing complex, yet there is a waiting list of applicants far beyond the 49 apartments that will be available.
Officials from Regan Development, the Village of Wurtsboro, Town of Mamakating and the state ceremonially broke ground Friday to herald the start of the first affordable senior housing in the area. Senator John Bonacic said this type of housing is in great demand. “The need for affordable housing is insatiable; when we’re done with this project we could do 100 more, and there still would be a need,” he said. The project will include 42 one-bedroom apartments and six two-bedroom facilities. All will be rented at below market rents because of public financing from the New York State Housing Trust Fund and federal tax credits from the state Division of Housing and Community Renewal. Private equity financing and construction and permanent financing were also involved.

The company is currenlty accepting applications for the next 30 days. Interested persons may call them at (914) 693-3011 for brochures and applications.

My response:

Dear Senator Bonacic:

I am sick of big government Republicans backing corrupt backroom deals like the Regan Development "affordable" housing projects in Wurtsboro and Saugerties.  The projects may be affordable to your rich cronies at Regan Development but they are not affordable to the taxpayers whom you have molested.

I am a registered Republican, but I will be backing (both financially and with my time) your opponent in the next election. The reason is that the only thing worse than a Democrat is a big government Republican who lies to the Republican Committee and says he favors small government while, at the same time, supporting taxpayer-exploiting housing developments that run moderate income homeowners out.

Is It Time to Buy More Gold? carries a Bloomberg piece (h/t Kitco) saying that professional investors are boosting their gold positions.  Maybe it's time to add to my position.  It's difficult after a period of loss to bravely attempt to time markets, but why not buy during a sale?  Of course, the same argument could be made with respect to the housing market.  A friend told me that a house that had been listed for $400,000 in the Town of Olive, where I live, was recently sold at auction for $130,000.  Will there be further declines, or is this the bottom?  When I bought my house in 1997 Olive was called "low-tax-Olive."  Because of incompetent Town negotiations with the City of New York, which pays much of the Town's taxes via its largest reservoir, the Ashokan, our taxes have signficantly escalated. So buying property on speculation is risky, which will contribute to plunging real estate prices.
