Homeownership Drops To 48 Year Low, Median Rent Soars To All Time High, White american employment decimated under Obama, 63.4 percent home ownership rate lowest since 1967, Fewer white americans employed now than 2007

“In today’s labor market, there are nearly 1 million “missing” young workers—potential workers who are neither employed nor actively seeking work (and are thus not counted in the unemployment rate) because job opportunities remain so scarce. If these missing workers were in the labor market looking for work, the unemployment rate of workers under age 25 would be 18.1 percent instead of 14.5 percent.”…Economic Policy Institute May 1, 2014

“For now, the absence of young adults from the housing market continues to put a dent in the homeownership rate, which dropped to 64.8% in the first quarter, compared with 65.2% in the fourth quarter of 2013, according to U.S. Census statistics. The rate was as high as 69.2% in the fourth quarter of 2004. For those younger than 35, the rate has fallen noticeably faster. It slipped to 36.2% in the first quarter, from 36.8% in the fourth. The homeownership rate for this group was as high as 43.6% in the second quarter of 2004.”…Market Watch May 12, 2014

We keep driving this point across.

It explains a lot.

White American employment has been decimated under Obama.

There were more white Americans employed in 2007 than now.

Whites make up approx. 2/3 of the US working age population.

“US Middle Class Stays Dead: Homeownership Drops To 48 Year Low; Median Asking Rent Soars To All Time High

Three months ago, just as the last Census Homeownership and residential vacancy report hit, Gallup released its latest survey which confirmed just how dead the American Dream has become for tens if not hundreds of millions of Americans.

According to the poll, the number of Americans who did not currently own a home and say they do not think they will buy a home in “the foreseeable future,” had risen by one third to 41%, vs. “only” 31% two years ago. Non-homeowners’ expectations of buying a house in the next year or five years were unchanged, suggesting little change in the short-term housing market.

As Gallup wryly puts it, “what may have been a longer-term goal for many may now not be a goal at all, and this could have an effect on the longer-term housing market.””

“Earlier today, the US Census released its latest homeownership data, which confirmed that for what is left of America’s middle class, owning a home has become virtually impossible, with the homeownership rate plunging from the lowest level since 1986, or 63.7%, to just 63.4% the lowest reading since the first quarter of 1967.

Three months ago, when compiling this data we said that “at this rate, by the end of the 2015 and certainly by the end of Obama’s second term, the US homeownership rate will drop to the lowest in modern US history.” That moment, as shown on the chart below, came far sooner than ever we had expected. The only question is whether the lowest homeownership print on record reported in 1965 and standing at 62.9% will be taken out in the next 2 quarters or in early 2016.”

homeownership rate Q2 2015

“Yes, it is safe assume that the imminent lowest homeownership print in US history may be the “bottom.”
Still, the ongoing death of the middle class is not bad news to everyone: landlords, of which private equity firm Blackstone recently became the biggest in the US, are reaping unseen profits courtesy of runaway inflation in at least one item: rent.

Because as homeownership falls, demand for rental housing is booming. The vacancy rate for rented homes in the U.S. fell to 6.8% in the first quarter from 7.5% a year earlier. It was the lowest first-quarter rate since 1986.

And the punchline, which should come as no surprise to anyone: the median monthly asking rent just rose to a record $803 across the US.”

I am going to make this real simple for you.

Recently Obama, the liar in chief, boasted to students at the University of Wisconsin that he created 12.8 million jobs.

The following comes straight from the US Labor Department website.

White Americans employed.

January 2009: 116,863,000 .

June 2015: 117,942,000.

That’s just over a million.

December 2007: 120,003,000.

We are not even close to pre recession levels.

Nor have we provided for population growth.

From Zero Hedge July 3, 2015.

“Barack Obama Tells Another Whopper – He Did Not Create 12.8 Million Jobs”

“America is better off when President Obama is out on the stump bloviating and boasting rather than in Washington actively doing harm. But the whoppers he just told the students at the University of Wisconsin are beyond the pale. Said our spinmeister-in-chief:

And the unemployment rate is now down to 5.3 percent. (Applause.) Keep in mind, when I came into office it was hovering around 10 percent. All told, we’ve now seen 64 straight months of private sector job growth, which is a new record — (applause) — new record —12.8 million new jobs all told.

“We are now 29 quarters from the pre-crisis peak and total non-farm labor hours utilized by the US economy are no higher than they were in Q4 2007. In other words, if you use a common unit of measure—–labor hours rather than job slots which treat coal-miners and part-time pizza delivery boys alike—–there have been no new units of employment at all. Our teleprompter reading President is actually tooting his own horn about recycled hours and “born again”  jobs and doesn’t even know it.”

“In short, we have gone through two business cycles and have essentially added zero new employment inputs to the US economy.  And that marks a sharp and devastating reversal of previous trends. In fact, the BLS’ own data convey an out-and-out crisis that the President should have been lamenting, not a cherry-picked simulacrum of growth based on born-again, apples-and-oranges jobs slots.

Thus, during the comparable 29 quarters after the 1990 business cycle peak (Q2 1990 to Q3 1997) non-farm labor hours had increased by 12% and during the same period of time after the 1981 peak (Q3 1981 to Q4 1988) labor hours expanded by 17 percent.  That’s what employment growth used to look like, and absolutely nothing like that has happened on Obama’s watch.”

The media reports continue to claim that we are adding jobs every month.

What they are not telling you, the truth, is that white Americans and young native born Americans are being decimated in the job market.

One of the reasons for this is the influx of illegal aliens who are in fact taking jobs from native born Americans.

And yes, Donald Trump is correct.

They are bringing crime and using our resources at taxpayer expense.

Data from the US Labor Department reveals the impact on white Americans.

There were 106,000 fewer white Americans employed in June.

There were 339,000 more not in the labor force.

Since Obama took control in January 2009, the labor force participation rate for whites has dropped 3.3 percent.

From Zero Hedge July 2, 2015.

“Part-Time Jobs Surge By 161,000; Full-Time Jobs Tumble By 349,000″

“While the kneejerk reaction algos were focusing on the +223K jobs number reported by the Establishment Survey, few if anyone notched that the Household survey reported a decline of 56,000 workers in June.

But what’s worse, is that according to this survey which according to some is far more reliable than its peer, the composition of the US labor force once again deteriorated rapidly with part-time jobs added in June surging by 161,000 while the number of full time jobs tumbled by 349,000.”

“Why is this a problem: because while the US still has 800k full-time jobs to go to at least regain the prior peak, during the same time period the US civilian, non-institutional population has risen from 232.9 million to 250.7 million: an increase of 17.724 million!”

From the Economic Policy Institute June 19, 2015.

“The Bureau of Labor Statistics’ May State Employment and Unemployment report showed most states continued on the generally positive—albeit somewhat unremarkable—track they’ve been on for the past year. Since May of 2014, all but one state (West Virginia) have added jobs, and unemployment has fallen in all but five states: Louisiana, North Dakota, South Carolina, South Dakota, and West Virginia. The only slight dark spot in recent trends is that, as with last month’s report, it appears the well of jobs from the oil and gas boom seems to be drying up. In states where growth from the boom has been explosive (North Dakota, Oklahoma), this slowdown still leaves them well ahead of the pack.

From February 2015 to May 2015, 38 states and the District of Columbia added jobs. Nevada (+1.3 percent), Rhode Island (+1.3 percent), and Maine (+1.0 percent) had the largest percentage gains. All three of these states showed some acceleration in job growth in recent months, although none of the three has yet to recover all the jobs they lost in the Recession. From February to May, 11 states lost jobs, with the biggest percentage losses occurring in North Dakota (-1.8 percent), Wyoming (-1.3 percent), and Oklahoma (0.6 percent). For the country as a whole, employment grew by 0.4 percent over the same period.

Unemployment fell in 25 states from February to May, with Washington (-0.9 ppt), Tennessee (-0.8 ppt), and Indiana (-0.8 ppt) experiencing the largest reductions. Washington state and the broader Pacific Region have had impressive labor market improvements over the past year, as Pacific states have increased employment and reduced unemployment faster than any other region of the country.”

As far as I am concerned, this is just another lie, i.e., leaving one with a false impression.

Directly from the US Labor Department, BLS.

Hispanic Latino employment rose 147,000 from February to May of 2015 and 3,875,000 since December 2007.

White employment rose 56,000 from February to May 2015 and dropped almost 2 million since December 2007.

You should know by now that over 30 percent of millennials live with family members due to the horrid jobs situation, higher rent costs and student debt.

Gen X, Generation X, has also been hit by the Obama economy.

From Main St. June 8, 2015.

“Gen X, the leading edge of which will turn 50 next year, with the youngest hitting 35, are facing the reality of their looming retirement prospects. And so far, there is much room for improvement.

Gen X was roiled by the Great Recession, losing nearly half (45%) of their wealth. Now, a new study by Northwestern Mutual reveals that Gen X is compounding that major setback with the poorest financial habits of the four generations surveyed. Most respondents characterized themselves as spenders rather than savers, making them the generation most likely to havemore debt than savings.

Almost four in 10 (37%) admit they do not “at all feel financially secure,” an outlook more pessimistic than any other generation, even the often money-challenged Millennials.”

https://www.mainstreet.com/article/mtv-generation-faces-retirement-wake-up-call

If you have been reading Citizen Wells you know that White Americans have been decimated in the job market since Obama took the White House in January 2009.

As of a few months ago, 75 percent of the employments added went to Hispanics and Latinos.

From Zero Hedge June 11, 2015.

“All of this is cast against a subpar (or perhaps “non-existent” is the better term) economic recovery wherein weak demand has curtailed spending and investment, leading directly to lackluster wage growth. This of course, makes it still more difficult for would-be buyers to make a down payment and indeed it says quite a bit about the state of the economy when homeownership rates continue to hit multi-decade lows even as Fannie and Freddie are now backing loans with down payments as low as 3% while FHA has cut premiums at the same time.

If you’re a millennial, the situation is even more desperate. As we’ve documented extensively, new graduates are having a difficult time finding jobs that are commensurate with their education. College degrees have become so commonplace that they have largely ceased to differentiate candidates from one another and on top of that, many young job seekers are discovering that their $35,000 educations did not provide them with the skills sets employers are looking for. Speaking of $35,000 educations, student loan debt is perhaps the biggest impediment to homeownership for young Americans.

Combine a 14% U-6 unemployment rate for 18-29 year olds with soaring rents and a housing market that’spricing out young adults in many of the nation’s most desirable locales and you have the recipe for historically low homeownership rates for millenials. A new study by The Urban Institute has more on homeownership by age group:”

From Zero Hedge June 15, 2015.

“Last week the government reported personal income and spending for April. After months of blaming non-existent consumer spending on cold weather, shockingly occurring during the Winter, the captured mainstream media pundits, Ivy League educated Wall Street economist lackeys, and Keynesian loving money printers at the Fed have run out of propaganda to explain why Americans are not spending money they don’t have. The corporate mainstream media is now visibly angry with the American people for not doing what the Ivy League propagated Keynesian academic models say they should be doing.”

“Despairing mothers, unemployed fathers, impoverished grandmothers, and indebted young people are supposed to feel lucky because they aren’t starving to death like the wretched Greeks. We do have one thing in common with the Greeks. We’ve both been screwed over by bankers and corrupt politicians. Did you know you’ve been given a free ride by your friends at the Federal Reserve? Did you know that zero interest rates and $3.5 trillion of Quantitative Easing (aka money printing) were implemented to benefit you? According to Hilsenrath, the Fed lending money at 0.25% to their Wall Street bank owners, who then allow you to borrow from them at 15% on your credit card, represents a free ride for you. Are the subprime auto loan borrowers, who account for 30% of all auto sales, paying 13% interest getting a free ride?”

I read and hear the reports almost daily.

The hunger problem in the US and NC, particularly lately in Greensboro, NC.

What I am not reading or hearing much of is the economic and jobs crisis in this country. Except here at Citizen Wells and Zero Hedge.

With a economic and jobs crisis, you are bound to have a hunger crisis.

The national media and local media are reporting the hunger problems. But they won’t give you the truth about the jobs situation and one of the biggest reasons it is so bad. The influx of illegal aliens who have been permitted to stay and work here. Taking jobs from native born Americans and taking taxpayer funds from Medicaid which has consequently taken funds from education in NC.

Quit protecting Obama and gives us the damn truth!

“Food Banks In New York Are Running Out Of Food”

“Welcome to the Recovery! Food banks across the US state of New York are running out of food (37% of food pantries say they have had to turn away needy people because they ran out of food), amid falling funds and rising demand from people that have trouble affording food. About 2.6 million people have trouble affording food across New York with about 1.4 million New York City residents relying on food pantries to feed themselves, according to the Food Bank For New York City. But as PressTV reports, contrary to the belief that people visiting food pantries are homeless and jobless, most customers are employed, but are not paid enough money to put food on the table without help.”

From the Center for Immigration Studies November 2014.

“A key part of the Affordable Care Act is Medicaid expansion for those with low incomes.1 A new analysis of government data by the Center for Immigration Studies shows that immigrants and their U.S.-born children (under age 18) have been among the primary beneficiaries of Medicaid growth.2 The data show that immigrants and their children accounted for 42 percent of the growth in Medicaid enrollment from 2011 to 2013. Immigrants benefited more from Medicaid expansion than natives because a much larger share of immigrants are poor and uninsured. It seems almost certain that immigrants and their children will continue to benefit disproportionately from Obamacare, as they remain much more likely than natives to be uninsured or poor.”

http://cis.org/immigrant-families-accounted-for-42-percent-of-medicaid-growth-since-2011

It turns out that not only have Obama policies impacted jobs for Native born Americans but have also impacted money spent in NC on education due to rising Medicaid costs.

More on this to come.

I have been watching in amazement as municipalities around me have for several years been acknowledging ID cards issued by pro immigration groups.

These ID cards have prevented illegal aliens in NC, when stopped by traffic police from being arrested as they should be for being here illegally.

Now the state of NC may be giving illegal aliens more carte blanche as they reside in this state and take jobs from native born Americans (and yes I can prove that).

From WRAL June 9, 2015.

“NC driving privileges for people in US illegally clears committee”

“House Bill 328 would create a “restricted ID” for undocumented residents in North Carolina that would look different from a standard driver’s license. People obtaining one of the permits would need to undergo fingerprinting and background checks and prove their identity. Driving privileges would be attached to the restricted ID once applicants pass a state driving test and obtain liability insurance coverage.

While the bill cleared committee on a 22-11 vote, the measure is controversial, splitting Republicans in the House who are divided between encouraging people who are on the road anyway to get insurance and those who say the state should not provide public benefits to undocumented workers.

“What we want to do in this undocumented community is to separate those who are engaged in criminal activity from those who otherwise are not engaged in unlawful activity,” said sponsor Rep. Harry Warren, R-Rowan.

“I believe they are committing a crime being illegally present in the United States,” said Rep. Bert Jones, R-Rockingham, who dialed in on provisions of the bill that would require someone who obtained one of the new driving privilege cards to be fingerprinted and undergo a background check that would ensure they hadn’t committed any serious crimes.

Gov. Pat McCrory, also a Republican, sent his legislative liaison to the committee Tuesday to express his disapproval as well.

“He is opposed to this bill,” said Ryan Minto. “He (the governor) is concerned with the provision providing driving privileges to people in the country illegally.”

During a committee meeting last week, opponents of the bill tried to do away with the driving privilege provision. That amendment, which would have left mainly punitive measures in the bill, failed.

Warren said the bill was meant to provide both a “carrot and stick” to urge drivers to obtain identification and insurance. Roughly 10 states already offer a similar privilege, Warren said, although North Carolina’s standards for obtaining the card would be more stringent than most.

Warren and other backers of the bill said that immigration is a federal issue, one the United States government hasn’t dealt with efficiently. The result, he said, was an estimated 325,000 undocumented people in North Carolina alone, a situation that has created a hazard on the state’s roads.”

From Citizen Wells February 11, 2015.

“From the Center for Immigration Studies August 2014.

“An analysis of government data by the Center for Immigration Studies shows that, since 2000, all of the net increase in the number of working-age (16 to 65) people holding a job in North Carolina has gone to immigrants (legal and illegal).
This is the case even though the native-born accounted for 61 percent of growth in the state’s total working-age population.”

The NC percent of population employed dropped 8.6 percent since 2000!!!

Dr. Ada Fisher is a retired physician and Republican National Committeewoman from NC.

Yesterday by “chance” for the second time in several months, I caught her interview on “Black Issues Forum” on UNC TV.

The timing could not have been better.

Dr. Fisher is for legal immigration and against illegals entering our country.

She warns about the impact of illegal immigrants on black employment.

Watch the interview.

I am for legal immigration and not rewarding those who come here illegally and take advantage of our kindness and in many cases commit other criminal acts and in most cases use our resources at native born Americans’ expense.
