YUUGE Mistake: Trump Nominates Liberal Neal Rackleff At HUD

Our friend Tom DeWeese, president of the American Policy Center, has alerted us that yet another liberal anti-conservative activist has been nominated for a senior position in the Trump administration.

This time it is Neal Rackleff to be the Assistant Secretary of Community Planning and Development at HUD.

HUDWhy is his nomination such a mistake?

Neal Rackleff is the former Director of Public Housing for Houston, Texas.  In that job he led the programs President Trump promised to eliminate.

If confirmed, Rackleff would oversee such programs as the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH), an Obama policy that is a direct threat to private property owners and local governments. 

HUD is using the program for pure social engineering to change the very culture of the nation, and destroy the concept of property ownership. In the process HUD is using law suits and intimidation to destroy the Founder’s concept of local rule that is elected by the people.   

Currently Neal Rackleff is a partner of a law firm called Locke Lord. They specialize in dealing with “community and economic development, affordable housing, and municipal and public law.” In short, they are lobbyists pushing the HUD policies and grant programs onto local governments. These are basically the guys hiding in the back rooms, out of sight, spreading the poison of AFFH!

During the campaign Candidate Trump promised to end AFFH. Rackleff’s appointment to oversee this dangerous program would be a disaster. That’s because he is a partner in a Houston law firm that is a major force behind promoting such HUD grant schemes.

In short, Neal Rackleff is the swamp that President Trump promised to drain!

Unless his nomination is defeated or withdrawn there is no way to stop the HUD tyranny.

Here’s what conservatives must do to stop this disastrous nomination:

First: Please call HUD Secretary Ben Carson’s Chief of Staff – Sheila Greenwood. She has the power to withdraw Neal Rackleff’s nomination. Tell her he has a severe conflict of interest to serve in this vital position. Tell her Neal Rackleff is the very swamp President Trump pledges to remove!! Her phone number is (202)708-2713

Second: Please call Senator Mike Crapo. He is the chairman of the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs committee. His committee will decide on Rackleff’s nomination. Again, explain that Rackleff and his law firm create a major conflict of interest and that the nomination must be defeated. Senator Crapo’s number is (202) 224-6142. Fax (202) 228-1375.
