Bleeding the Suburbs to Pay Reparations to City Dwellers,
This review is from: Spreading the Wealth: How Obama is Robbing the Suburbs to Pay for the Cities (Hardcover)
This book was admittedly released at this time because Stanley Kurtz the author, feels that the facts included in it will awaken the voters in the suburbs to how Obama plans to abolish their communities and put them, their taxes and their schools under control of the Democrat big city mayors.
Kurtz details how Obama has long believed that the residents who fled the cities are racists and need to be dragged back into the cities to help solve the problems festering there. If Obama's plans for this forced redistribution became common knowledge, then it would be cause his re-election campaign to crash and burn.
Six short and to-the-point chapters entitled "Abolish the Suburbs, Manhattanizing America, In Up to His Eyeballs, Saul Alinsky Radical, A Suburb of the Mind, Redistribution Revolution, Fooled, Ruled, and Schooled" and "Obama in a New Light" plus lots of sources and notes and a good index make up the guts of this tome.
For those naïve suburban voters who have only been paying attention to mainstream media, if following the news at all, they don't realize that the so-called trillion-dollar stimulus plan was really just a poverty program that was intentionally mis-named to fool the voters. That's why it had almost no effect and certainly produced no improvements.
For more than two decades, Obama and his fellow radical community activists, agitators have been working toward punishing all those people who voted with their feet and fled the cities and left them filled with only poor and minority residents. "Suburbs are for sellouts...For Obama, the suburbs are a defect in the very structure of American life. That is why the president backs his old friends' movement to abolish them."
"'We are battling apartheid in America.' So said Obama's onetime organizing mentor Mike Kruglik in 2005, explaining the philosophy behind his crusade for regional equity. At the the time, Kruglik was directing the regionalist efforts of the Gamaliel Foundation, a national network of community organizations that Obama himself had helped launch in the mid-1980s. Today Kruglik leads the Gamailied offshoot Building One American, which fights for regionalism in partnerships with the Obama White House, although few Americans have any idea that this is the case."
To the radicals, those suburban racists deserve to have their wealth taken away from them and given to the less fortunate but Obama can't publicly proclaim the details of the regulations to abolish the suburbs because, "Much of Obama's base, to say nothing of independents, would be alienated by the regionalist agenda; this explains the president's reticence. Openness about his antisuburban goals would expose Obama as standing to the left of many of his supporters. Middle-class African Americans and modestly successful suburbanites now disposed to vote for the president might think twice if they knew what Obama had in store for them."
"Kruglik and Obama plan to overcome this liability by splitting the suburbs against themselves, creating an alliance between cities and the relatively less well-off inner-ring suburbs."
They hope to achieve this basic change in America by expanding cities into regions that will all come under the control of the nearest cities. Obama and his allies consider everything about the suburbs to be bad. That's where the money has fled. That's where the SUV's and autos pollute the environment. That's where valuable farmland and forests are absorbed to build more urban sprawl. The suburbanites need to be dragged back into the cities and their love affair with the car crushed.
Mass transit is intended to stop the building of highways in order to help eliminate the use of automobiles. The health care laws are really designed to help bring about the redistribution of wealth from the suburbs to the poor.
This is an important goal of Obama and the leftists and if Obama serves another term, he will be able to punish the middle and upper class residents living outside the problems of American cities.
Kurtz was blunt about what this book was intended for. He wants to awaken the voting taxpayers to the hidden agenda that is being concealed from them. He wants this information to become the coffin nails in the upcoming Presidential election because Obama can't win the next election without the suburban voters being ignorant of his planned power grabs.
He also knows that this information will be totally ignored and hidden from the general public by the so-called mainstream media that has so much invested in the candidate they foisted upon the nation to prove that they weren't racists. Now they don't want to admit what they did and how much damage it has already done to the nation.
Tell your friends about this book, because they won't hear anything about it from the news media.
This volume is exceptionally easy to read. The author doesn't leave any doubt to how he feels or how he arrived at his conclusions, which he has shared in this short book. Even the book's cover seems to beautifully illustrate Kurtz's beliefs about the current President of the US.
Footnote: As of mid-September 2013, HUD has begun to implement several of the predictions that the author had spelled out in this pre-reelection book. The actions of the Obama Administration are now
confirming the accuracy of the contents of this book.

Amen. I completely agree. Obama loses the votes of the secular suburbanites if they realize he plans on making their life miserable.

The foundation for this suburban slaughter has been in the works even prior to Obama coming into the White House. In many areas are plans by Metropolitan organizations that align with this vision. In Philadelphia it is the First Suburbs Project but you will find many similar organizations using the same language -disparate impact - citing Brookings Institution data. Also read for more info "Change for America - Progressive Blueprint for the 44th President". This book was put together by John Podesta and the Center for American Progress. Page 319 - Chapter entitled "Meeting 21st-Century Metropolitan Challenges" uses the EXACT same wording as these First Suburbs and "2020" progressive groups use and the exact same language being used by this new "office of sustainability" which was part of this progressive blueprint for Obama.

The destructive disparate impact doctrine is part of the 1971 U.S. Supreme Court decision Griggs vs. Duke Power. Private and public institutions are deemed guilty of racial bias if they employ a low percentage of minorities. Strangely, nobody seems to care that an NBA team is not willing to add me to their team---jut because I am a slow and unathletic white man. Can I get a witness?

Yes! I've seen them they're working with Build One Pa and have training opportunities for all town or twp managers. Between the rised reporting standards just released in July from HUD, there is fresh funding and push. Can you believe all the websites! There is also America2050 as well as 2020. HUD can sue any twp that won't comply, or just the threat of suits is enough to make twps act. There is a map of high opportuntity zones outside Phila right on the internet! Lower Makefield Twp is high. Even though they have no public transit (yet!). They want trains and bus lines added. Liveable towns they'll promote, but really all it does is force population under the guise of fairness, when people can move their on their own. Low income people are welcome already in any town around Philly, it is a very naturally diverse and welcoming area. The towns get grants for revitalization than only use a smidge, and sock the rest away to encourage developers? I don't know. But there are strings with every grant. Every town manager and council is hooked on grants that is for sure, and they see it as free money. Tax dollars! Oh my.
