If you live in the suburbs, you might be wise to advise your children on how to live, work and survive in America’s inner cities because that is where they are likely to be living in the near future in a Warsaw ghetto type of scenario.
The mass migration from the suburbs back into densely populated urban areas is not a next week thing, or a next month thing or even a next year proposition, but the groundwork is happening right now. If you are not a Baby Boomer, you will not likely be retiring in the suburbs.
In Part One of this series, I detailed how the Chinese are forcibly relocating one million Chinese per month to the mega-cities that have been dubbed the “ghost cities”.
Obama will not rest until he has removed every man, woman and child from suburban areas in the United States.
Obama’s Front Man For Suburban Depopulation
The real brains behind the coming Agenda 21-inspired mass migration from the suburbs to the inner cities is Mike Krulig and his new group of community advisers, Building One America. Most of you have never heard of Krulig or Building One America and there is a good reason for their anonymity. If a majority of the American people ever discovered Krulig’s true intentions for suburban dwelling Americans, they would chase him down the street and string him and his people up from the nearest light poles.
The secretive agenda of Building One America has been mostly achieved by Obama’s appointment of like-minded community activists to his staff. In fact, Krulig was one of Obama’s original community organizing mentors from the President’s Chicago Southside days. The word stealth applies because of a damning photo depicting Krulig and Obama meeting at the Whitehouse in 2011 which was subsequently published on the Building One America website. (The photo is displayed above). However, this type of publicity would not have been good for the swing voters living in America’s suburbs in the 2012 election. Obama’s people had the video scrubbed as well as the search engine links. However, the Breitbart people retained a copy of the picture. This begs the question, if the Building One America plan is so good for America, then why would the Obama people conceal his affiliation with Krulig and his group of Agenda 21 social engineers?
Krulig’s Agenda 21 Building One America group proposes the creation of a regional tax-base, sharing revenues in which suburban tax money is directly redistributed to nearby cities and economically depressed concentric zones of inner-ring suburbs. Building One America also seeks to move the poor out of cities by imposing mandatory low-income-housing quotas for middle-class suburban developments. Here are the plans of the Building One America proponents (e.g. Senior White House adviser Valerie Jarrett).
Krulig’s group also seeks to export the controversial regional tax-base sharing scheme currently in place in the Minneapolis–St. Paul area to the rest of the country. Under this program, a portion of suburban tax money flows into a common regional pot, which is then effectively redistributed to urban, and a few less well-off “inner-ring” suburban, municipalities. The Minneapolis-St. Paul area regional government is run by unelected and unaccountable bureaucrats (i.e. Commissars) who are out of control. It is critical to know that removing the election process from this, Agenda 21, wealth redistribution endeavor was deliberate for reasons that will become obvious, as the reader will discover.
Don’t Get Too Attached To Your Car
The VMT will get America out of their cars and into the inner city.
Krulig’s group also favors a variety of policies designed to force people out of their cars and force suburbanites, robbed of their own tax money, to relocate into densely populated stack and pack cities.
Among Krulig’s strategies to separate people from their cars is the Vehicle Mileage Tax (VMT). Road pricing for the VMT would be implemented to force drivers out of their cars. This will impact all drivers except for the Obama inspired exemption of low income drivers.
The VMT is designed to give favored status to certain groups. These groups represent organizations that want to transfer wealth through the heavy hand of regional government interfering in the housing, transportation and land use market place.
This tyranny is also being beta tested in the (San Francisco) Bay area in a project entitled One Bay Area Plan. One Bay Area Plan is a 25 year plan which combines housing, transportation, and Agenda 21 land use policies. The public cover story is that the project is designed to save the planet by reducing Green House Gasses. The generated revenue, estimated at $15 million per day, would be used to fund further Agenda 21 transportation schemes such as buses, trollies and light rail in which only a few people presently ride. And speaking of light rail, I live in Arizona. Arizona has the worst funded schools, mental health and medical care system in the country. Yet, that has not stopped the politicians from spending almost $2 billion dollars to build a light rail system in downtown Phoenix which only encompasses a few miles of usable track in either direction from downtown. And to make bad matters worse, Arizona has approved building an even more expensive light rail system which will connect Phoenix with Tucson and this system will eventually expand to San Diego and Albuquerque.
This plan also calls for Upzoning which would expand the plan to even more areas in the Bay. This would mean even more requirements for high density housing in cities that do not have their “fair share” of low income people. This will result in more 200 square foot apartments being constructed near public transit lines. It should be noted that Mayor Bloomberg is doing something very similar in New York City in which the construction of any new apartment unit over 500 square feet is being forbidden in select neighborhoods.
This Bay Area Agenda 21 plan also contains a concept referred to as the Communities of Concern (i.e. low income and communities of color) would receive funds from these windfall profits that the region would receive. It appears to many as if Obama is trying to provoke a race war. Additionally, development fees would be eliminated for affordable housing developments, while subsidies would be used for favored activities such as the creation of more micro apartments and the construction of low income housing in the suburbs.
The Agenda 21 proponents are so brazen that the existence of this scheme has even become part of the mainstream news. The following video contains a Fox News report on the very urban management principles described in the previous paragraphs.
On one hand, at least Americans are not experiencing forced relocation to the “stack and packs” as we see China doing. Yet, Obama’s Building One America’s tax plans are beginning to have a similar effect.
Despite the omnipresent evidence that federal relocation tax policies are in place and spreading across the country, most people mistakenly believe that the reality of the megacities concept in which we are all herded into the stack and pack cities is decades down the road. On the contrary, as you have seen, the program is being beta tested in two large metropolitan areas and many of Building One America’s collectivist city management principles are presently being implemented right beneath our noses. As long as Americans pay their taxes and abide by some reasonable community standards, shouldn’t we all be free to live where we choose? Most reasonable people would answer yes; we should be free to choose where we live. However, this is not in the Obama agenda. As will be revealed in subsequent parts of this series, Obama was made President to usher in cap and trade and the deindustrialization of the United States. America is truly learning the meaning of fundamentally transforming America and unless we are able to wake up our fellow citizens, things are about to get a whole lot worse.
There is a much more to this dire and unfolding scenario. It is becoming clear that the globalists are planning to dramatically and rapidly depopulate an entire region of the country which will impact tens of millions of people. The depopulation of the breadbasket of America, the rural areas, is well under way and that is the topic of the next part in this series.
