Blackrock, the bailouts, and the financial takeover of the world

I haven't had a chance yet to read the article but it is very weird how many rural or even semi-rural properties are going in under 24 hours. Many that I look at are not in areas that other transplants are aware of nor are they super desirable areas. I'm dialed into the real estate market and I get there's low inventory but I'd really like to confirm whether Blackrock or others are responsible. It wouldn't surprise me.
I asked realtors in various rural regions about who is buying the homes so fast, and they said what they see is a lot of big city people, New Yorkers, people from wealthy states such as Florida, etc, offering sight unseen the moment something goes on the market. Fixers get many small non-institutional cash investors bring offers. On top of that, there're a lot of locals with grown children living with parents waiting for a chance to get own home, and these had been waiting for a while, they often have a chance to get the first word and first look about something going on the market. My impression is that good stuff doesn't even go on the market anymore and is probably sold pre-market.

I bet they are not even buying to physically move in but to corner the goym out of rural existence.

A lot are moving. Airbnbs are full of people moving out of more populated areas "back to the land" right now. But others will have it as 2nd home, or will turn it into investment rental eventually. Right now there's big run on anything with a bit of land, though, or, in the West, even just in a small town and people are getting out of the cities as they can work remotely.

I'm sure there are former big city employees leaving the big city life behind, but I doubt Bill Gates is alone here, if he is doing it, his whole tribe is and he's not buying land to move in.
The squeeze is two fold one is increase in federal land and the other through "free market" with Bill and private equity firms buying out insolvent farmers.

If this is true then that means those white areas that the banks are buying up will probably not be so white in the future based on who they rent it to. Or perhaps there will be a welfare program they do with the Feds to place immigrants.

We can speculate, but we also know that Biden's team had announced before the election that they intended to utilize the threat of withholding funds to force rural areas to change zoning laws and put up "diverse" section 8 housing.

It is part of the Biden-Harris plan to abolish the suburbs that Trump warned Americans about over the last few years. This means Biden-Harris is now going to enforce the Obama administration’s radical AFFH (Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing).

The Biden Plan for Investing in Our Communities through Housing​

Joe Biden is running for President to rebuild the middle class and ensure that this time everyone comes along. He believes the middle class isn’t a number, but a value set which includes the ability to own your own home and live in a safe community. Housing should be a right, not a privilege.

Today, however, far too many Americans lack access to affordable and quality housing. Nationwide, we have a shortage of available, affordable housing units for low-income individuals. Tens of millions of Americans spend more than 30% of their income on housing – leaving them with nowhere near enough money left over to meet other needs, from groceries to prescription drugs. And, tens of millions of Americans live in homes that endanger their health and safety.

Communities of color are disproportionately impacted by the failures in our housing markets, with homeownership rates for Black and Latino individuals falling far below the rate for white individuals. Because home ownership is how many families save and build wealth, these racial disparities in home ownership contribute to the racial wealth gap. It is far past time to put an end to systemic housing discrimination and other contributors to this disparity.

Biden and Dems Are Set to Abolish the Suburbs​

President Trump had a great riff at his rally the other day in Phoenix. It was all about “abolish,” about how the Left wants to abolish the police, ICE, bail, even borders. Trump’s riff is effective because it is true. The Left has gone off the deep end, and they’re taking the Democrats with them.

Well, there’s another “abolish” the president can add to his list, and it just might be enough to tip the scales this November. Joe Biden and the Democrats want to abolish America’s suburbs. Biden and his party have embraced yet another dream of the radical Left: a federal takeover, transformation, and de facto urbanization of America’s suburbs. What’s more, Biden just might be able to pull off this “fundamental transformation.”

The suburbs are the swing constituency in our national elections. If suburban voters knew what the Democrats had in store for them, they’d run screaming in the other direction. Unfortunately, Republicans have been too clueless or timid to make an issue of the Democrats’ anti-suburban plans. It’s time to tell voters the truth.

I’ve been studying Joe Biden’s housing plans, and what I’ve seen is both surprising and frightening. I expected that a President Biden would enforce the Obama administration’s radical AFFH (Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing) regulation to the hilt. That is exactly what Biden promises to do. By itself, that would be more than enough to end America’s suburbs as we’ve known them, as I’ve explained repeatedly here at NRO.

What surprises me is that Biden has actually promised to go much further than AFFH. Biden has embraced Cory Booker’s strategy for ending single-family zoning in the suburbs and creating what you might call “little downtowns” in the suburbs. Combine the Obama-Biden administration’s radical AFFH regulation with Booker’s new strategy, and I don’t see how the suburbs can retain their ability to govern themselves. It will mean the end of local control, the end of a style of living that many people prefer to the city, and therefore the end of meaningful choice in how Americans can live. Shouldn’t voters know that this is what’s at stake in the election?

It is no exaggeration to say that progressive urbanists have long dreamed of abolishing the suburbs. (In fact, I’ve explained it all in a book.) Initially, these anti-suburban radicals wanted large cities to simply annex their surrounding suburbs, like cities did in the 19th century. That way a big city could fatten up its tax base. Once progressives discovered it had since become illegal for a city to annex its surrounding suburbs without voter consent, they cooked up a strategy that would amount to the same thing.

This de facto annexation strategy had three parts: (1) use a kind of quota system to force “economic integration” on the suburbs, pushing urban residents outside of the city; (2) close down suburban growth by regulating development, restricting automobile use, and limiting highway growth and repair, thus forcing would-be suburbanites back to the city; (3) use state and federal laws to force suburbs to redistribute tax revenue to poorer cities in their greater metropolitan region. If you force urbanites into suburbs, force suburbanites back into cities, and redistribute suburban tax revenue, then presto! You have effectively abolished the suburbs.

Obama’s radical AFFH regulation puts every part of progressives’ “abolish the suburbs” strategy into effect (as I explain in detail here). Once Biden starts to enforce AFFH the way Obama’s administration originally meant it to work, it will be as if America’s suburbs had been swallowed up by the cities they surround. They will lose control of their own zoning and development, they will be pressured into a kind of de facto regional-revenue redistribution, and they will even be forced to start building high-density low-income housing. The latter, of course, will require the elimination of single-family zoning. With that, the basic character of the suburbs will disappear. At the very moment when the pandemic has made people rethink the advantages of dense urban living, the choice of an alternative will be taken away.

That’s all bad enough. But on top of AFFH, Biden now plans to use Cory Booker’s strategy for attacking suburban zoning. AFFH works by holding HUD’s Community Development Block Grants hostage to federal-planning demands. Suburbs won’t be able to get the millions of dollars they’re used to in HUD grants unless they eliminate single-family zoning and densify their business districts. AFFH also forces HUD-grant recipients to sign pledges to “affirmatively further fair housing.” Those pledges could get suburbs sued by civil-rights groups, or by the feds, if they don’t get rid of single-family zoning. The only defense suburbs have against this two-pronged attack is to refuse HUD grants. True, that will effectively redistribute huge amounts of suburban money to cities, but if they give up their HUD grants at least the suburbs will be free of federal control.

The Booker approach — now endorsed by Biden — may block even this way out. Booker wants to hold suburban zoning hostage not only to HUD grants, but to the federal transportation grants used by states to build and repair highways. It may be next to impossible for suburbs to opt out of those state-run highway repairs. Otherwise, suburban roads will deteriorate and suburban access to major arteries will be blocked. AFFH plus the Booker plan will leave America’s suburbs with no alternative but to eliminate their single-family zoning and turn over their planning to the feds. Slowly but surely, suburbs will become helpless satellites of the cities they surround, exactly as progressive urbanists intend.

If America’s suburban voters understood that all this is what Biden and the Democrats have in store for them, it could easily swing the election. That means President Trump now has another “abolish” to add to his list: Joe Biden and the Dems want to abolish America’s suburbs.

There’s just one hitch. Incredibly, although AFFH is arguably Obama’s most radical initiative, Ben Carson’s HUD has still not gotten rid of it. Instead, Carson suspended enforcement of the rule early on and then tinkered around for three years trying to come up with a replacement. What Carson has developed so far is something you might call “AFFH lite.” While this possible replacement removes many of the regulation’s excesses, Carson has so far retained the most egregious feature of AFFH. He still wants to use HUD money to gut suburban single-family zoning. How Carson can even think about taking this stance in the face of President Trump’s explicit directive to reduce and remove excessive federal regulation is a mystery.

It will be very tough for President Trump to make a political issue out of Biden’s housing plans so long as his own cabinet secretary is talking about killing suburban single-family zoning with AFFH. I think Carson’s wobbling on AFFH explains a lot about why Democrats have become so bold with their plans to undo suburban zoning. If even the Trump administration goes along with federal attacks on suburban zoning, the Dems figure they’ve got political cover. Time was when Obama administration officials would turn somersaults to deny that they were going to control suburban-zoning decisions, even when it was obvious that this was their plan. Now, Biden and Booker are remarkably open about their desire to densify the suburbs and get rid of single-family zoning.

The Democrat war on the suburbs is a golden gift to President Trump, but he won’t be able to make use of it until he throws over Carson’s AFFH lite and completely guts Obama’s wildly radical regulation. Then Tump can go to town on Biden and the Dems for making war on the suburbs.

If there were ever proof that Biden has shed his centrism and been taken over by the Left, this is it. Biden got the nomination by declining to endorse the most radical plans of his rivals. But take a look at Biden’s housing plans and it’s clear that he is now a wholly owned subsidiary of the Left. Progressive urbanists’ long-cherished dream of abolishing the suburbs is now within reach. With AFFH restored to its original form by a President Biden, enforced to the hilt, and turbo-charged by the Booker strategy, suburbs as we know them will pass from the scene.

With them will disappear the principle of local control that has been the key to American exceptionalism from the start. Since the Pilgrims first landed, our story has been of a people who chose how and where to live, and who governed themselves when they got there. Self-government in a layered federalist system allowing for local control right down to the township is what made America great. If Biden and the Democrats win, that key to our greatness could easily go by the boards.

Biden and Dems Are Set to Abolish the Suburbs​


Bill Gates buys the farms. Blackrock buys the suburbs. They're going to make you live in the city, so you can never escape the enrichment. You'll have your mandated government, provided box. You will receive your weekly government stipend that's tied to your social credit score. You'll get your daily supply of bugs for nutrients. Gas cars will be outlawed, so you can never leave the city. You can choose between getting shot by Tyrone for being whitey, or shot by Karen the police officer for not having your vaccine passport. Yup, things are starting to make sense.

I wonder if they are doing the same in Europe?
 
I wonder if they are doing the same in Europe?

In both Belgrade and Tirana there are massive constructions happening, these are capital cities and I'm certain they are expanding housing capacity, back in 2008 in one of Alex Jones documentaries, they phrased Brzienski of a future of uprooted masses of people living in mega cities. It's not too hard to guess that they will make living in rural areas financially impossible. Thet want everyone to come over to the big cities. And didn't Biden administration working on a massive infrastructure program? You think this is about roads and bridges? Or surveillance infrastructure and grid in major cities?

I think the financial takeover is a primary objective and the whole vaccine passport thing is a secondary objective.
I have an old blog post somewhere I made back in March/April of 2020 where I said exactly that, upcoming global financial takeover under the cover of the Hoax. Things had been pretty clear from the start, once the fog of Wuhan Twitch fakes had cleared up a bit.

In practice how will this actually take place? If massive inflation kicks in then everyone who owns their house on a mortgage gets their debt inflated away.
