The Last Few Weeks (or so) In Review April 11th,2014

Welcome again gentle reader to The Last Few Weeks (or so) In Review April 11th,2014
a compilation of various articles and contributions, findings and other information from our various media, contributors and readers.  



1/ The utter collapse of human civilization will be ‘difficult to avoid,’ NASA funded study says:

"After running the numbers on a set of four equations representing human society, a team of NASA-funded mathematicians has come to the grim conclusion that the utter collapse of human civilization will be “difficult to avoid.”
The exact scenario may vary, but in the coming decades humanity is essentially doomed to some variant of “Elites” consuming too much, “resulting in a famine among Commoners that eventually causes the collapse of society.”
That is, unless civilization is ready for one of two “major policy changes”: inequality must be “greatly reduced” or population growth must be “strictly controlled.”
The apocalyptic pronouncements, set to be published in an upcoming edition of Ecological Economics, come courtesy of a U.S. team led by applied mathematician Safa Motesharrei and funded in part by NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center." full article here


Sounds pretty scary eh? Well if there's one thing Ive learned is that when it comes to people and society that numbers and equations don't always match the reality. In fact human's usually defy logic for the most part and don't always cooperate neatly (or nicely). Now its a given that civilization will collapse at some point, it has countless times before and will to varying degrees again. Question is will it be a slow decay or a sudden collapse. Not to many things change that drastically that quickly. Who knows......

2/ Putin ‘wants to rebuild USSR with Ukraine’ – Brzezinski
The insiders insider, Brzezinski had already predicted much of what has come to pass in the Crimea. Crimea is as good as gone and will not be part of Ukraine for the foreseeable future. It's now a part of Russia and unless the west is willing to send in the troops to take it back folks better move on. 

Euronews has a really good interview (sadly they wont let me share it on my blog lol) with Mr.B here
But what aren't we being told? Granted all sides in this have some serious stakes and anyone on the outside looking in will really have to ask themselves what is the angle, what is this person trying to convince me of. Ukraine is one of those situations (like many situations in the real grown up world) where everyone is lying, telling the truth and trying to manipulate your opinion.
 

3/ Evil von Scarry Blog Updates 
3 new articles - 

 Rosanne Barr "MK ULTRA alive and well in Hollywood"

Hollywood (also see Laurel Canyon and also Disney Club 33!)  has long been a part of MK ULTRA. If you cooperate you will be successful, if not you get ostracized or "suicided". A few though do break out of their programming or become programmers but are able to get out. Take a look at Tila Tequila (got out), Brittany Spears (tried to...), Marilyn Monroe,Michael Jackson, Anna Nicole Smith ("suicide"). Some are not necessarily "programmed" but become part of the program, Eddy Murphy, Dave Chappelle . full article here

 

Designer Babies,Eugenics, are you obsolete? 

FDA (Food and Drug Administration) is  reviewing mitochondria process called "mitochondrial manipulation technologies". Say what? O.K. going for the crayon version: the stuff that a mother passes to her children could be manipulated by science. Got it? Now a certain process of doing that has some folks spooked as it now also involves having 3 parents. Yeah no shit, 3 parents. -full article here

Anonymous - Rothschilds & Malaysian Airlines MH370 Connection-

 well we previously didn't have anything on MH370... that is until now. Thanks Anonymous for this video and the story has also been picked up on IBT (International Business Times) Australia. Thanks also to "The Big Picture" blog over at WordPress.- full article here


 4/FBI investigating Rush County home for artifact collection- thanks to Dave M for sharing this article. Turns out crazy ole man Jenkins killed and stuffed the Scooby Doo gang and put them in his private museum. Judging from the FBI reaction I was wondering the if old fella had the Roswell alien bodies on display!

 RUSH COUNTY, Ind. -

"The FBI says a 91-year-old Indiana man who collected thousands of archeological artifacts over his lifetime may have acquired some of them improperly.
At a news conference Wednesday, the FBI could not say if Donald Miller would face charges for his collection in Waldron. Dozens of agents were at Miller's farm to collect and process the artifacts." full article here  update here
 

5/ Nevada Rancher stands up to feds trying to stop him from grazing his cattle on his land

 

If it wasn't for the wide circulation of information on the net and activist networks, this probably would have turned into another Ruby Ridge or Waco Texas event. With no survivors the Government would be able to make up their own story and no one would have been the wiser. Turns out after about 20 years of this being a dispute the Feds have sent in officers and private contractors to round up Mr.Bundy's cattle.There was mention of protected species in the area before the government had changed it's story when that didn't seem to sway public opinion against the rancher. And now it's simply that he hasn't paid for the right to graze in the area and this is a last resort action. Seems dubious to me and apparently to many others. In many articles BLM is continually referenced. Its stands for U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM). 

Fucking hilarious that a "1st Amendment" area was set up. Really?....really? What the fuck is that. Real Democracy is not neat and tidy, it is not to be put in a neat little area to be ignored. FUCK THAT. Democracy is loud and noisy and inconvenient as well it should be. It asks questions and does not put up with tyranny!

Various militia groups are on their way to the ranch to help protect Mr.Bundy's family and act as a defense against any potential massacre the federal agents might try. Apparently some cowboys have broken through the federal barricade to help out the Bundys.

So what is this really about, sure as hell isn't the desert turtle. The government could really give a shit about that. Turns out there is alot more at stake. Thanks to the Next News Network for getting us the straight dope. 

  Apr 12 UPDATE -quick update on the Bundy Ranch situation, it appears that the BLM has stood down due to appearance of Militia groups and protestors!- EvS

Anonymous - Rothschilds & Malaysian Airlines MH370 Connection

well we previously didn't have anything on MH370... that is until now. Thanks Anonymous for this video and the story has also been picked up on IBT (International Business Times) Australia. Thanks also to "The Big Picture" blog over at WordPress.



From many of our fans and contributors the passenger list was a key factor ,conspiracy folks know where to look. Turns out Jacob Rothschild has a connection (go figure), and its not a small one either. About 20 of those passengers were part of a company named Freescale Semiconductor, " launched a new electronic warfare device for military radar systems - the ARM microcontroller KL-03 - days before the plane disappeared." It would appear that this patent also has other branches and implications for the tech world. Really I didn't want to even touch this story and still not sure I want to delve to deeply into it. There are too many trails going to completely dead ends, wild speculation, rumors, fabrications and somewhere some truths. It also is vastly time consuming and I have to be able to pick my fights and this is not a hill I'm willing to die on. Having said that though I owe it to our readers to at least provide some leads and facts should they choose to chase this one down. 

Finally, although the Rothschild name may be a talisman for many conspiracy theorists, it isn't true that Jacob Rothschild "owns" Freescale Semiconductor. Freescale is a public company whose stock is held, in part, by 152 different institutional shareholders. The Blackstone Group, at which Jacob Rothschild serves as a member of the company's International Advisory Board, is one of the largest of those institutional holders (with over 196 million shares), but the Carlyle Group and TPG Group Holdings both own a number of Freescale shares equal to that held by Blackstone.

Now before everyone gets too excited with an aha moment realize that it's really easy to jump all over the Rothschilds given their track record of influence in world affairs and events.!

Worst case scenario this story will inject new interest in who the real power brokers of the world are and shine some much needed light into that dark crevice.

Jacob Rothschild is one of THE big whigs in the NWO, Bilderberg,Trilateral you name it. This was an old fashioned "follow the money". Granted Jacob hasn't exactly came forward saying, "moahahahahahaha" but that's not his style. But as the Roman's were fond of saying, "Cui Bono" or Who Profits? With the deaths of these top people on that flight from Freescale Semiconductor is Jacob Rothschild now sole owner of the patent for the ARM microcontroller KL-03?

Finally, although the Rothschild name may be a talisman for many conspiracy theorists, it isn't true that Jacob Rothschild "owns" Freescale Semiconductor. Freescale is a public company whose stock is held, in part, by 152 different institutional shareholders. The Blackstone Group, at which Jacob Rothschild serves as a member of the company's International Advisory Board, is one of the largest of those institutional holders (with over 196 million shares), but the Carlyle Group and TPG Group Holdings both own a number of Freescale shares equal to that held by Blackstone.

Snopes did jump on this, sort of:
 (quote from Snopes, links added by myself-EvS)
 "Finally, although the Rothschild name may be a talisman for many conspiracy theorists, it isn't true that Jacob Rothschild "owns" Freescale Semiconductor. Freescale is a public company whose stock is held, in part, by

OK fair enough, however George Sorros (a known agent for Rothschild banking) is tied in with the Carlye Group. Also TGP Holdings is tied in as well. The Rothschild family has many agents (all related) in both of these groups and their subsidiaries.

RIT Capitol Partners is the public flagship of the Rothschild family alongside Glencore (Xtrata plc- controlling shares). So do they "own" all of the central banks they are alleged to? No not from what I can find. But owning and controlling are very different. The not so public but open secret is the family is coming together again after about a 100 plus year split over Concordia BV which seems to be the mothership for them ( no pun intended for the UFO buffs). But the more digging I did trying to find the bottom, more companies and holdings keep cropping up. One of these days I'll try to put together a comprehensive list.

Designer Babies,Eugenics, are you obsolete?

FDA (Food and Drug Administration) is  reviewing mitochondria process called "mitochondrial manipulation technologies". Say what? O.K. going for the crayon version: the stuff that a mother passes to her children could be manipulated by science. Got it? Now a certain process of doing that has some folks spooked as it now also involves having 3 parents. Yeah no shit, 3 parents. Still need a man and a woman though and another woman. It's still not ok yet in the United States.

Links for all aspects of the FDA discussion panel

 Special thanks to Phil Seagrave-(one of our contributors) for telling us about this one. 

The Huffington Post has an article entitled "FDA Asked to Approve Creation of Genetically Modified Children"

The process has already approved in the U.K.  by "The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority: the UK's independent regulator overseeing the use of gametes and embryos in fertility treatment and research.". That's a mouthful but the link above is right to the website.

Granted this specific technology could also help certain babies who would carry specific MtDNA mutations as well as assist woman who have difficulty conceiving children. So that's a good thing right? I know a few people who really want to have children that this would be a great option. For the religious what (if any) are the implications? It does bring up that specter of genetic manipulation again though. Is this fear unfounded?  Here is another article refuting fears raised in a New York Times article. 
Maybe it goes deeper than just fertility or "designer babies"..........





I just cannot shake the feeling that this has the potential to be a proverbial Trojan Horse.
Also there's that pesky Nuremberg Code that came into being after the Nazi's were defeated and something or other against non-consensual human experimentation. Item here

So is it time for a new look at Eugenics?
Say again? OK refresher for those that need it: Eugenics has long been a popular (well it comes and goes over the years) and has been around since around the American Civil War, yeah that's about 150 years. But for the sticklers out there is goes back to Ancient Greece (or even earlier-think Sparta or Plato's Republic).

The basic idea is that through selective breeding or in more later day uses "genetic manipulation", undesirable traits in humanity can be wiped out, und zen ve can achieve the race of superior man!  You know like the Nazi's or Soviets. Sorry got a little carried away there but yeah that's Eugenics dirty little secret (racial and or socioeconomic hygiene). Funny how some of those rich folk especially the Nouveau riche suddenly become big proponents of modern Eugenics!
Also the rich think your poor or middle class ass needs to be weeded out too.
 Thing is who the hell is going to trim the hedges? Robots I guess.....

There's a whole hockey sock full of ethical issues around this issue. For instance what about deafness or hearing impaired should we eliminate that? What about blindness? There's a lot of folks out there with those "conditions" that contribute more than we know. If Stephen Hawking as an embryo that was screened out due to a genetic defect found.... what then?

Just another step in a trans-humanist utopia? Hard to say really as you can't lump all trans-humanists into the same agenda. Some would go farther and see all trans-humanists as lumped into the same agenda.

I bring up the trans-humanists as they seem to get the short end of the stick in the "conspiracy world" (especially when it comes to genetic manipulation) and it's just my gut reaction that if everyone is running in one direction I need to take a look at least in the other direction if not start walking that way!

 

Granted modern eugenics is all clean and neat, even "sciency". No untidy death camps or cattle cars....those will be reserved for those who don't like the new direction.

The debate will get down and dirty with some folks and at times will be about as fun as treating leprosy sores but needs to happen.

Some categories for Eugenics some might not be aware of include:
-genetic screening
-birth control or "planned parenthood"
-genocide. look up the stats for abortions by ethnicity.



Don't get me wrong on some of the above, I believe in a woman's right to choose although I'm not a fan of abortion. Margarete Sanger (the "mother" of contraception-not abortion to be fair) whom many awards are named after was a real piece of work and anyone naming any kind of award after her needs to really think about that one!  I don't wish to be all one sided. Here's some positive or "moderate" views on this controversy. Yeah "conspiracy" buffs are inconvenient as they bring up shit that's not always neat and tidy. As well I'm not exactly Bill Nye Science Guy but I seem to remember something about genetic diversity being an important thing.

Rosanne Barr "MK ULTRA alive and well in Hollywood"

Roseanne Barr: “MK ULTRA Mind Control Rules in Hollywood

I read an article on "The Vigilant Citizen" on the actress Roseanne Barr discussing MK ULTRA and that it was still going on in Hollywood. This was a few years ago in an interview with Larry King.
The tag line above has a link to the VC original article. As many long term readers know MK ULTRA is a frequent topic of research and discussion here, so no surprise that we would jump on this story.

 Main stream Hollywood likes to portray Roseanne as a nut because she has spoken up in the past against various injustices she has seen and experienced in her Hollywood experience. To be fair she is a bit of a nut. However she might be many things but stupid isn't one of them!

Hollywood (also see Laurel Canyon and also Disney Club 33!)  has long been a part of MK ULTRA. If you cooperate you will be successful, if not you get ostracized or "suicided". A few though do break out of their programming or become programmers but are able to get out. Take a look at Tila Tequila (got out), Brittany Spears (tried to...), Marilyn Monroe,Michael Jackson, Anna Nicole Smith ("suicide"). Some are not necessarily "programmed" but become part of the program, Eddy Murphy, Dave Chappelle .



Roseanne's crucifixion started around 2001 around the time she gave an interview on CNN with Larry King. In that interview she described being a victim of the program and how it created multiple programmable personalities.Transcripts here- 
Roseanne has never been shy about speaking out. Like the VC article writer, I don't agree with everything she says but there is enough there I do agree with from my research into the area of MK ULTRA and MONARCH, ARTICHOKE,etc.



Here's a investigation panel deposition of another MK ULTRA survivor


Ever wonder how so many of these Hollywood celebs wind up so seriously fucked up? Sure access to all the free money, drugs and sex you can handle? That can account for quite a few.... but all of them? Even if you don't think there is a connection do some further reading, find out what you can and I'll bet you'll find some connections there. The "powers that be" really just can't help themselves with their own sense of self importance so they leave behind tell tale signs and symbols (remember the 33 Club? More on that later).

For those of us who have worked with the chronically financially disadvantaged, folks from abusive situations or with people who have mental health concerns it's not to hard to see just how vulnerable they really are. At least in the regular world you have to pass a police and background check before you work with people in the afformentioned conditions. Hollywood as we have seen follows it's own rules and seems not to be bound by the same laws as the rest of us.

The Last Few Weeks or so In Review March 17,2014

Time for another installment of The Last Few Weeks or so In Review. A highlight of our
various social media from various contributors, reader submissions and articles from around
the net.

1/ The Crimea 
Does Russia really want it back? Is it a power play show between East and West? Perhaps
Russia is trying to maintain it's relevancy or Putin is putting on a risky show to the old hard-
liners to prove he's still the toughest? What's in it for the West? What's in it for Ukraine?

We've been seeing an almost knee jerk reaction of activist support for Russia's stance on Crimea from West bashing types. Sure there's an agenda from the West but let's not forget Russia play's the Great Game as well. As much as I love RT (Russia Today) the propaganda seems to be in full swing, the old saw "doth protest too much" seems fitting.

Not to say that "Western Media" is'nt propaganda however even MSM isn't on the same parallel. On of the RT anchors had an attack of conscience on air and quit over Russia's invasion of Crimea (Ukraine).

Let's call it what it is. By all international standards it is an invasion. Hitler invaded Austria and Czechoslovakia to protect ethnic Germans too. Not that I'm comparing Hitler to Putin that's a bit much but it is an illustrative situation. Seems to be a lot of similarities of that time to now.

Russia see's right wing elements in the form of Ukrainian Ultra-nationalists as a huge threat in Crimea and eastern Ukraine. But is this a convenient excuse for a territorial grab? Keeping control of the gas and coal? The rub is Russia knows the "West" is always be willing to negotiate to stay out of war. 

As much as it might piss people off the Crimea is no longer part of Ukraine and short of armed force will not be for the foreseeable future , if ever.  Apparently this whole scenario was already figured out back in 1997 from one of the big New World Order insiders, Zbigniew Brzezinski’s in his 1997 book, The Grand Chessboard

2/ Malaysia Flight MH370
Wow what can we say about this one that hasn't been said already? The Web and media has been all over this one. In case you've been off the grid the last while I will quickly summarize:
Passenger plane on-route from Malaysia to China disappears....completely. No satellite no GPS, nadda,zip zilch. Over 200 people and crew and huge frickin plane disappear no traces.  Or is there? Turns out there is some information that is slowly coming out.
Now many folks come here looking for an alternative angle but on this event I gotta admit I've got jack shit. Checked through some of the more well know passengers,etc but didn't find anything that was really untoward. However here's a video with some "alternative theories".

One article even questioned if it was headed for an Asian 9-11
The newest bit is that maybe it flew to Pakistan and was hijacked!

3/ The Internet and Technology
-Scientists work on backing up human brain with computers! Yup science fiction now becoming fact. Just the next step before we start living in the Ghost in the Shell world.  Not surprisingly our "friends" at DARPA are all over this one. Will this be the big transcendence of cyber punk? If you haven't seen the Ghost in the Shell series it was years ahead of it's time and actually addresses some very serious issues in an increasing technological world .

-Protecting our Privacy- now this focuses on Canada but is not much different than anywhere else
in the world.

-U.S. Navy wants ships powered on Sea Water
excerpt-
"The process begins with a three-chambered cell that receives a stream of seawater in the central compartment. Right now, one of these units sits on the shore of Key West, Fla., at the lab’s Center for Corrosion Science & Engineering facility.
The cell pulls a relatively pure and concentrated source of carbon dioxide from the seawater. This source is usually better than carbon dioxide recovered from flue or stack gases produced by the burning of fossil fuels, Willauer says. Such gases require expensive, energy-intensive hardware to further purify them so they’re safe to use and won’t harm living organisms."
-Are We Machine? 
"Advertising puts a lot of money in the way of machines that predict us better. But also of social network services that makes our behaviour more predictable. Do we run the risk of losing the Turing test by becoming less human?"- full article here
 -

4/ Housekeeping and updates 
some updates from previous reviews and articles
- Mysterious Banker Deaths
 besides the "suicides" of various high end bankers a BitCoin banker has also mysteriously died! Autumn Radtke who was a BitCoin exchange CEO has also been found dead. At this rate bankers will be beating out dentists for "suicides".


-Cyber Warfare the real new Cold War.
yeah it does exist and has happened lots of times already. Better to know that it's going on as your computer or cell phone could become an unwitting participant or casualty! 
Sadly the main weapon is Denial of Service attacks or simply known as DoS attacks. Simplifying it it is where one group has a slave network of computers attack another computer (or network, service,etc) to "shut it down". And your computer could be on of these slaves. Worse yet it might not be some 15 year old computer kid with ego issues but could be your own government! So is your computer an unwitting slave in these wars? Here are some indications that your computer might be a botnet slave.


 9-11
Bin Laden son-in-law trial goes ahead almost unreported
almost missed this kangaroo court completely and maybe that was the intent. The U.S. Government doesn't need a big media focus on the whole 9-11 event again especially if it wont jive with what they've told the rest of the world. 
-BBC explains why it reported WTC7 collapsed an hour before it did.

We Need to Know Why We Are Lied to

 
Too bad we can't use the "Liar, liar pants on fire" line on our leaders and the media.  We'd have them in flames over some of the stories they have told us over the years.  It's getting to be too many to mention - the lie about a single bullet killing JFK and injuring Governor Connally in Dallas, the lie that we would win the war in Viet Nam, the lie of nineteen suicide hijackers crashing planes into buildings on 9/11, etc.

The Last Week or so In Review March 3rd 2014

Welcome to another edition of the Last Week or so In Review. A compilation featuring highlights of stories and articles from our various sources, contributors and readers.

1/ Ukraine, Russia and The Crimea 
Otherwise soon to be known as "the shits on fire show". In our previous Week or so In Review I had mentioned that the Sochi Olympics had the feeling of the Olympics of Berlin in 1936(that was on Feb 12th!) . As our friend Jim said, its like the post 1936 Olympics in fast forward. Also a thank you to Dave M on our Facebook group for giving us timely info as this situation developed!
So a quick brief- Russian troops "secured" the airport and other spots in the Crimean area of Ukraine just after announcing (about 48 hrs prior)that they were conducting readiness military exercises. Now it's become Russian troops defending a Russian speaking majority there due to turmoil and Ukraine passing anti-Russian speaking language legislation. The United States had some strong language about it but so far that appears to be about it. One report suggested that the U.S. felt that Germany needs to take the lead on this one. Yeah really, I guess nobody considered how anyone else would feel about German troops in the Ukraine again! In the world of bad ideas this has to be one of the tops.There is also calls for Poland to take a larger role.


So the Russian parliament has given the green light for troops to deploy into the Ukraine itself, Ukraine has went on full alert mobilizing its military and reservists and the U.S. 7th Fleet is on its way to the area. Let's just hope this doesn't become the new flashpoint for wider war.

2/ Police Brutality

We should expect that those various police phrases such as "To Protect and Serve" actually have meaning and that our police should have public safety and rule of law in mind. However with increasing militarization of police forces and a change in how police are trained (us vs them mentality) increasing incidents of police brutality are bound to happen. Since 9-11 everyone is now a suspected terrorists and many police have become nothing better than goons. Recently a deaf man was tasared by police in California while he was trying to communicate using sign language! The killing of a army veteran by police in Canada is especially galling considering he was walking away from them and then got shot in the back!


3/ Mysterious rash of banker deaths

Before this one goes off the radar I feel we need to keep an eye on it. With other events in Crimea going on other stories, especially ones that were shadowy to begin with, tend to fall off the map.
Of late there has been a lot of bankers showing up as suicides especially with JP Morgan. It's hard to feel anything for these bankers but at the end of the day they are still human beings. 


George Soro's has apparently bet against the economy. Maybe these dead bankers knew something they shouldn't have? Or maybe something they could not face?


4/The Cyber World 

As much as we would like to ignore it you would do so at your own peril. A quick summary of things we feel you need to know from recently.

A real solution to the homelessness problem

Everyone knows there is a homeless problem and there seems to be no shortage of band-aids to mitigate the problem. Its been awhile since I've seen any real solutions and seems to become a divisive issue. Another common feature in the whole discussion is the demonetization of landlords which is an easy target as most won't or don't have time or energy to defend themselves.

I've seen this from various angles and at one time  (thankfully short) have been homeless myself. I've also had a landlord come after me for money......

When I joined the army I had been living with two friends and they had taken over the house when I left. Unfortunately they didn't keep up on the rent. The landlord was able to track me down as the other two had beat feat and were not available to collect from. We set up a payment arraignment and settled without any ill feelings. As to the other two I made damned sure I collected next time I was home on leave!

So was the landlord being an evil prick for wanting his rent money? He wasn't running a charity and had to pay for taxes, upkeep and utilities on his property that he rented to us. Now being a home owner I know all too well about keeping up with the costs of owning a house. I wouldn't be a landlord as it's too much hassle taking time and money out of pocket and dealing with tenants and the continuous upkeep of keeping the place going is just too much. 

Granted there are shitty landlords who don't keep up on maintenance or seemingly jack up the rent to make continuous habitation all but impossible. But if you don't like it, move. We all have freedom of choice. And if there were no land lords or someone who could provide a room then what would be an option for many? The real enemy should be "affordable housing". But just as there are shitty landlords there are equally shitty tenants. I still know people that are "living the dream", partying and carrying on like "back in the day" who skip out on rent, do the midnight move, etc. They're no better than the so called "slum lords".

The real fact of the matter is that are more laws and statutes that protect tenants than there are for landlords. Also the number of "anti-poverty groups" and not-for-profits that provide support for homeless people and those "fighting" landlords is massive. Rights groups for landlords.... slim pickings at best.

One of my friends is a landlord, I know a few others as well. Many of them have the same problems with tenants and none of them (these are people I know very well) are evil slum lords, they jump through hoops to make sure that their tenants have a good property for their money and most go above and beyond the various laws and acts protecting tenants. The following is an excerpt (used with permission) from one of those landlords. In it is correspondence between that landlord and a local anti-poverty group asking him for input into the homeless issue.

I know the group as well (they also have their hearts in the right place and trying to do the right thing) however they do take a very hard leftist stance on landlords without taking a hard look at those they espouse to support. Some of the terms used may be familiar to some of the readers others not so much. I will have links attached to some of these terms but otherwise have not edited unless noted in brackets-and have italicized or highlighted some points that I feel offer great solutions, some may think he gets a bit heated but it is illustrative to the frustration of one landlord that set out to do the right thing and continually has been burned by being a good guy. - EvS

Landlord:

start quote- "Its easier to help solve the problem than you may think.
Landlords place applicants on  Government Assistance at the bottom of the list of people who apply.
The reason is simple, ODSP tenants are not required to have any personal responsibility for their actions.
First when, not if,  they stop paying their rents to feed their drug problems and vandalize the property in a cracked out stupor, the landlord has no course of action to collect.
Despite what many anti poverty groups would like you to believe, most landlords aren't wealthy multi millionaires. They are small independent operators. When a tenant stops paying and vandalizes the property it comes directly out of the landlords pocket. Its not a simple matter of “first quarter profits being down”, The landlord is directly affected to the point that I know one who turned the heat off in his own house because the tenants stopped paying the rent and he was legally required to keep the lights on and heat going in the rental while the tenants partied it up.
The Ontario Landlord Tenant board is very Pro Tenant, to the point that I would say its run by card carrying communists hell bent on taking down the capitalist pigs.  A little melodramatic, but only a little. Adjudicators that are fair and impartial are few and far between, almost non existent.
There are numerous accounts of landlords loosing thousands of dollars from tenants dragging out their evictions, and the LTB (Landlord Tenant Board-EvS) directly supporting the free ride of tenants they have seen multiple times in the past for non payment of rent.
I would suggest going to a session of the LTB but thinking as a landlord. Listen to the rents $500, $600 etc, and the months that its been dragging out 3,4 and sometimes 8 months above the three months it takes to get into the LTB for the initial hearing.  The mortgage and hydro still need to be paid, and the money comes directly from the Landlords pocket. Could you afford to throw away that amount of money for months on end? Then ask yourself would you take a risk on someone you couldn't collect from?
After the Landlord finally gets an Eviction, collection for back rent and damages is impossible. There are avenues that the landlord can take such as Small Claim Court. Landlords usually need to go against a law student as the poor disenfranchised tenant has access to this resource. If the landlord wins they usually win a small fraction of what is owed and  a further loss to the landlord.  Collection from a individual who’s income is protected under law is next to impossible. There are still options available however the cost is more than the amount won in court, so again the tenant wins and is not required to take responsibility for their actions and the Landlord pays the cost.
Landlord will say they are not renting a property they are lending out money. The final test before they rent to someone is to ask “would you lend this person money” if the answer is no, don't rent.
Landlords don't want to take the risk, and why should they?"
(this part here I feel offers the best solution for both the landlord and tenant- EvS)

 Landlord: 

"If you want to help get people off the streets  its easier than building more government housing and specialty care centers which is a further burden on the taxpayer. Make it mandatory that anyone on Government Assistance must have their rents paid directly to the Landlord. No exceptions. It reduces the Landlords risk significantly, and makes them more likely to rent to ODSP people. Also if the landlord wins for damages in court, that the Landlord can have money deducted from the persons monthly cheque, even if a nominal amount, ie $25. I know many don't get much to live on however they will think twice before damaging the property, making them personally responsible for their actions.
I don't believe that this will solve all of the problems, however it will help with many of them, the landlords will be more willing to rent, and some may start catering to this new market. Guaranteed monthly income is a good incentive for a landlord." end quote

Summation: 

Government Disability, Welfare or "out of work programs" do not provide enough funding and put many people into situations that will just perpetuate really shitty financial choices (like not paying rent). If these programs pay rent directly to a landlord then there should not be any problems keeping a roof over ones head. If more landlords knew they would have a guaranteed income from those on government assisted programs (or conversely a not for profit or NGO provider) then they would be more apt to be willing to rent to them.

Anti-poverty groups will counter that it is against human dignity to do such a scheme. But really if your getting assistance doesn't it continue to help when one doesn't have to worry about paying rent? If someone collects welfare are they more worried about so called "dignity" or more concerned about a roof over ones head? Same goes for food stamps, they aren't actual stamps and are more like atm cards. And what about tax payer dignity and rights? (and some of my compatriots will counter that the whole tax,banking and government system should be tossed out). Is it fair that tax payers have to pay for someone that has made poor choices in life, such as drug abusers, alcoholics and investment bankers? Setting an automatic deposit to pay rent would also set up the tenant for success instead of failure.

Affordable housing. Really this comes down to supply and demand. There are other options such as Co-Ops or a rent controlled housing (ie the projects). Its pretty straight forward: when property prices are high in an area rents, leases etc are going to be high. Thus why more "affordable housing" is cheaper in less desirable areas. When the vacancy rate of an area is high (ie available housing scarce) the price goes up. When vacancy is down the price goes down. So other than the above how will landlords be more willing to accept those on "assistance"? Pretty easy, guarantee that the rent will be paid and landlords will be taking a lesser risk on potentially high risk tenants.

Like the landlord that shared this with us said,
 "I don't believe that this will solve all of the problems, however it will help with many of them, the landlords will be more willing to rent, and some may start catering to this new market. Guaranteed monthly income is a good incentive for a landlord."
