Rahm Finds Another $20 Million

  • Nine Chicago neighborhoods riddled with foreclosures will get a blitzkrieg of cash and attention to turn those properties around, thanks to a $20 million loan pool unveiled Wednesday.

    With foreclosures rising by 20 percent in 2010, and resources steadily declining, Mayor Rahm Emanuel is trying a new approach to combat the epidemic that threatens to tear down entire inner-city neighborhoods.

  • The goal of the so-called “Micro-Market Recovery Program” is to bring new ownership to 2,500 foreclosed homes over the next few years using up to $20 million in loans provided by the John T. and Catherine D. MacArthur Foundation.

    That seed money is expected to leverage private capital — primarily from area banks holding foreclosed properties — to grow the loan pool to $50 million.

    The city hopes to use the money to “foster the reoccupation” — either by assisting homeowners under water, rehabilitating foreclosed homes and providing “multiple incentive programs” to potential buyers or by providing financing to “approved developers” who will market the units themselves.

Sounds like a whole bunch of people, not the least of whom are the MacArthur Foundation folks, are buying themselves access to Rahm's political future.

"Approved developers?" Area banks? That's going to make interesting reading, indeed. And all these private funds aren't required to jump through the same hoops that people receiving government money have to, right?

OK this has nothing to do with the article, but I did not know where to post this.

The 10 pm channel 7 news had a report about a black kid getting beat up by three white kids at a party in West Chicago. Showed the mug shots of the three alleged offenders.

So three white kids beat up a black kid, 10:00 news, vice versa, crickets!

Why don't our pension fund reps sue Rahm and the city to force them to properly fund our pension fund instead of squander all this money on any stupid project that comes along to benefit the Daley Crime Family?

Why not put the money into Habitat for Humanity? Instead of just handing the home over to people who are just going to tear it to shit again, Habitat for Humanity makes the people receiving the home put some of the work into rehabbing it. The belief is when they put their own work into it, they'll want to stay there and commit to the home and the neighborhood. Plus it uses other volunteers for some of the labor. This is just handing out work to preferred contractors, handing out homes to people that don't pay taxes, and wasting this benefactor's money

If there is one thing to be learned during these days of large "flash mobs" is that there is strength in numbers. If our pension shortfall is not addressed, there is going to be a large flu outbreak in May. Our watches will simply not exist, and large portions of those sent down to combat the rioting will suffer from this as well. I don't think Rahm fully understands how furious people are.

So let me see if I can get my hands around this and understand the entire process:

1. Sub-Prime mortgage companies, one of which is owned by an aldercreatures who was challenged by an unknown 18 year old who took 20% of his vote and and only won because he hire his fellow gang members, paying them THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS IN CASH to place his campaign signs all over the neighborhood to insure his re-election;

who is also in in financial trouble himself;

who also has his own 5,000 sq ft plus home which he mortgaged for $1.9 million and is now appraised at only $213,000 because it is in the middle of a bunch of homes he helped to finance to non-qualified people;

will go UNPUNISHED as the Mayor Crook II takes money from a charity and uses that money to further line the pockets of the crooks who created the mess in the first place?

Our house is on a corner in West Humboldt Park. At one point it was worth close to $400 K. At one point the value dropped as low as $154 K.

Now the value fluctuates up and down as much at 20% EVERY MONTH because we are in the middle of the highest foreclosure area in the City of Chicago!

It has DROPPED because of all the FORECLOSURES and SHORT SALES caused by banks and mortgage companies lending money to people who should have never had a loan in the first place!

How about PROSECUTING those who perpetrated the mortgage fraud in the first place?

How about some REAL OVERSIGHT and CONTROL over this process to make certain it is LEGAL HOMEOWNERS who CITIZENS of the US, and actually have a chance of KEEPING their homes once bailed out who get this money.

OH! WAIT! I almost forgot!

We only VOTE!

We, the schmucks who actually work for a living, cannot contribute millions of dollars to Mayor Crook II's campaign war chest to insure his perpetual re-election so he becomes the next King of Chicago.

We are all screwed!

I'm sure this bullshit will have its own thread by the end of the day, but check out the video on myfoxchicago.com of the "beating" by chicago police of two brothers. Its pure bullshit, the cops did nothing wrong. There is no mention of what the brothers were charged with, but I'm betting agg assault to po by the one dufus and resisting/obstructing the other by getting in the way. No one gets beaten, just taken down to the ground. No one gets hit after the cuffs are on, no one gets dragged across the floor. No mention if the police were called to the scene or if it was on view. Michael Ayala is no more than a jagoff machismo asshole who learned you can't threaten the police with bodily harm. Fox news is another hack, irresponsible journalist media member who report people's opinions with out verifying them as allegations as fact. Don't trust the media ever. They are not your friend. They are not the friend of society. They are scum. This is a non-story. This is everyday police work in the city.

Most of those homes will be stripped by thieves long before they are reoccupied. All the metal will be taken; plumbing, wiring, water heater, furnace, appliances - everything. Anything that is not taken will be smashed up. Once a home is vacant in a "riddled" neighborhood, there is little chance that anyone will ever live in the same home again. The "blitzkrieg" that these neighborhoods need is a bulldozer to both the vacant homes and the neighborhood occupants.

John T. MacArthur is probably rolling over in his grave.

Seriously, read the man's biography which came out a couple of years ago. His whole rationale for starting his foundation was to shelter his money so that he wouldn't have to turn it over to the government when he died and the estate taxes took effect.

It's a great foundation, but I don't think he'd want it to be used to "loan" money to any government body.

the other edge of this sword is the question: when, if ever, would this property, in this location, have been worth 'close to $400 K' without the run up in real property speculation/development, in whole, or in part, fueled by the very loose credit standards which have led to the results you've stated?


a lot of somebodies made a ton of capitol gain on this run up, so, as with any investment 'gamble', a lot of different somebodies are now experiencing those previous somebodies' gains as losses.


as with any essential pyramid scheme, the real estate bubble being the one currently under discussion, the early birds get the worms and the late comers eat dirt.


some would say that this is just 'free market forces' doing what free market forces do.

SAN DIEGO | Federal officials said Thursday they smashed a drug trafficking ring involving Mexico’s most powerful cartel and members of an Iraqi immigrant community who were caught selling drugs, assault rifles, grenades and homemade explosives.

About 60 people from the Iraqi community were arrested after a six-month investigation carried out by the Drug Enforcement Administration and the police in El Cajon, Calif.

Why not use that money to shore up our underfunded pensions Mayor Emmanuel. Not going to happen. Why not use it to balance the supposed city deficit, or the school deficit. Rahm says no.

Plus the mayor saved Daley a whole lot of money and grief by caving in to the Flint Taylor bullshit "I was tortured" gang. All his pathetic life Richie Daley has been stepping in shit and always come out smelling like a rose. What a great life!

Why is beat 5810 doing traffic stops during the day on the Ryan? I was just trying to get home from court and the sgt pulls me over and chewed me out for "blowing past me at 70mph making me look bad". Ok sgt - my bad! lol

You are a complete hand job! Maybe I'm too old school (25 yrs on) but i would NEVER blow past a squad car doing 70 mph. I think you just showed that Sgt a complete and total lack of respect, and not just because he's a Sgt. but because hes the POLICE! I wouldn't consider pulling the stunt you did.
You sound like a classless punk!

Not proactive policing when the call for the possible burglary comes in from an off duty. I love how the media shows a 15 sec clip but not the rest of it when the "vic" starts shouting at the police when walking back into the store. Assault? Can't tell because of no audio, this vic will get his 15 mins of fame.

SSC:

Check out:

The "Bloomingdale Trail"

www.bloomingdaletrail.org

This is the old railroad property that run through the 014th district.

Rahm want to have this built as a walking/bike trail that will cost:
OVER $100 MILLION DOLLARS TO FUND!!!!!!!
---------------

They've been talking about that since 2004. Nothing new here buddy.

They are MORE than talking now buddy... NOW the money is being divided up.. yours and mine. The city is MORE broke than ever and this will be going full steam ahead within the next 12 months.

The Sergeant is the police. You are a self centered idiot. Slow the fuck down, my family drives on the Ryan. You were "trying to get home from court"? Is getting home from court difficult? From the tone of your post, I'd bet walking is difficult.

Young and stupid is no way to go through life. Wake the fuck up.
