Home ownership more affordable for the fifth straight quarter but The Canadian Press

 
 
Real Estate is STILL FOUR things, Cyclical,  Seasonal, Emotional, misleading
 
Why is there this sudden need to prophesy an end to the recession and to project a present  Real Estate recovery Canada wide? is it basically due to the fact the Real Estate sales, Home Construction and the  related  DEMAND FOR LOANS actually now slows down almost almost to NIL during the FALL AND WINTER months? 
 
Is this a Conservative federal re- election spin? Lie?
 
Rather it seems

Liars abound still

In spite of real estate ethics codes, self regulation, the realtors I had  worked with were still some of the biggest liars still. Trust me! While they all claim they are here to be of service you ,  now just dream on, they are here solely to make money for themselves… and it seems any way they can.. I was shocked that when it came to making money the professing Christian Realtors now also were really no better than any of the others. The temptation to lie is much too great especially when there is a big chance you will lose the commission if you do not.. Realtors can make a commission on loan refferals as well.. Lawyers also make money when houses are sold and bought..  Few realtors, lawyers go to heaven still.

Retail sales in  CANADA rebounded in January 2009 from December, according to data released and sales rose very slightly on a monthly basis  but remained drastically down  compared with   2008.  Nationally, the retail sales rose as well January  after declining  in December, which was the largest monthly decline in more than 15 years. Stay tune now for more spins, liars, greed, false prophets too.

 Typical Real estate lying spins- Prices lower than last year- New listings continue to decline –  A buyer’s and seller’s market – Home sales set  record – well-priced listings and lower to mid-range priced properties remain in the highest demand –  A really good market presently to buy, sell.

During this year’s recession it is been a very good time to compare the various news media, institutions  and  to see how they lie, spin the truth to get more suckers to buy a home now..
 
Canada’s real estate market began serioulsy cooling off in the second half of 2008 and the statistics coming out in the first few months of 2009 strongly suggested that the trend would continue. http://www.cbc.ca/consumer/story/2008/11/14/f-realestatemap.html but greedy people who  want to get more money would try to tell you otherwise.
    
 It’s becoming easier to carry the costs of home ownership in Canada, but a survey by RBC Economics on housing affordability suggests this may be as good as it’s going to get. ” This is the same guy who failed to predict any downward movement on house prices. RBC was, just 18 months ago, predicting price growth in all markets. Well, prices in some markets went down 30% before starting to come back. Oops…     The thing to remember is that any “bank economist” ( who loan money)  is just someone hired to put out maximum positive spin on the housing market. Why the media prints the opinions of “bank economists”, when they are usually wrong and so obviously just spinning news for their own gain, is the bigger question.” These bank shysters are only going to say this in order to get more gullible people to bite off more than they can chew. Affordable, my axx. With this unstable job market we now have and the cost of everyday needs, who can ‘afford’ to buy now? Yeah. Try telling this to the hundreds of thousands of people forced into working in McJobs because their REAL jobs went bye-bye. There aren’t enough hours in a day for people to work so they can make their crazy mortgage payments, so they often have to sell at a loss, but by golly, keep spewing this garbage so the prices don’t fall TOO far. Can’t have that in the new era of corporate capitalism, can we? ” ” Unlike past years, in Ontario, only 1 in 6 houses are inspected, and there are little or no real recourse for people who buy bad houses.  It’s a big profit business, with no responsibility, little regulation and numbered Ontario corporations that disappear overnight. Horror stories number in the thousands around the GTA.”    http://www.cbc.ca/money/story/2009/09/09/housing-affordability.html
 
    
A sharp deterioration in this country’s real-estate market that began last year is showing signs of tapering off?” “New listings, which had been growing at a double-digit pace when the market was strong, have been shrinking”. MAYBE CAUSE HOME OWNERS DO NOT  WANT TO TAKE SUCH A BIG SALES PROFIT LOSS AT THIS TIME?   Nevertheless “This is going to remain a buyers’ market for some months to come,” I get a chuckle when I see the regular lies, or spins that Realtors use to try to get you to buy a home, it is always a good time for you to buy a home, good for them cause they get a commission..  it’s normal for Home/house sales to pick up as spring approaches.  You sell your house, you buy a home is the realtor spin as well. 
 
 
“Oh, more lies and imaginary figures put out by an agency that has everything to gain by lying and fudging the numbers. Let’s see those reports and stats all in paperwork. This is nothing but BS trying to trick potential buyers into buying now while the prices are STILL way inflated. People never learn.” http://www.cbc.ca/canada/british-columbia/story/2009/08/05/bc-real-estate-numbers-july.html#socialcomments 
 
Face it banks, Trusts, money lenders, News media, Realtors  often still exaggerate, spin, lie to get you to buy a home, it is always a good time for them mostly  if you do, for they get a commission, interests etc…  now most people missed the best buy for the present major real estate selling season is over for the year.. now all that is mostly left is all the rejects, over priced listings left to sell.  News media often also spread the  lies cause that is what they are paid for through the newspaper adds.. 
 
Is it really a  Home buyers’ market conditions sales pitch that now takes THE OSTRICH APPROACH FOR  the deliberate  absence of all realted, new bad news – especially when home prices  may continue to drop or prices remain low for another decade too? I was a RE/Max realtor but I did not tell the common real estate lies, false spins, I  don’t sell my soul to the devil to get a commission. I would still wait a few years before I would buy a home to see how the home market trend goes. Too many News media also  love to put a positive spin, not likely a true one, on negative news still too…  they tend to have hidden agendas too.

and the Realtors computer evaluations can still be misleading, a realtor can chose even to set false parameters in their general evaluations..

 http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/08/10/liberals-politicians-do-lie-too/ so do many Pastors, so why not everyone else? 

I can quickly sum up my political experiences in Canada.. for decades now most people in Canada  seem to elect liars and alcoholics for politicians, and we have had now much too many of them elected as well.. Of course  it seems natural for alcoholics to lie, they seen to often lie that it is is ok to drink alcohol in the first place, and it seems natural for many lawyers who run for political offices, and many want to be politicians to lie to get elected.. Yes most people elect liars who tell them the things they want to hear.. we all know that had Stephen Harper told the truth that Canada was going into a major depression next, he very likely would have never got elected. so he said there was going to be no election or recession, he clearly lied. After he was elected he admits Canada was facing a big recession of course, how could he deny otherwise. I openly express the truth that we should stop electing any liars and alcoholics, even in the police forces, civil and public services now too,  and when it is confirmed that they are thieves, cheats,  liars or alcoholics they should be immediately fired, recalled.. as simple as that too. Some professing ostrich evangelical totally deny that the professing Christians drink alcohol, they have a problem with the alcoholics rather and not me I merely reported the truth, facts, that many professing Christians drink alcohol and falsely try to justify it as well.. Alcohol does a lot of brain damages, negatively affects your ability to work, to live normal, alcohol is a major cause of car accidents, tends to destroy your family life, so of course I have no use for alcohol or alcoholics anywhere. Neither should any of us not just MADD, Mothers Against Drunk Drivers. and a  bad immoral Conservatives is not better than a bad immoral Liberal, especially firstly the alcoholic ones.

and consumer protection  is another big government farce now too..

Ever notice how the average person lies once every 5 minutes at least, so imagine what the big liars do, how often the politicians, and some news media, realtors lie.. signifcantly a lot more.. Even “Some people say that the recession is over but try telling that to the unemployed and their families”  Now the jobless are being driven onto the welfare rolls (the responsibility of provinces and municipalities) or   forcing  them to plunder their assets such as homes and retirement savings, maximizing their credit car debts. Neither option is pleasant. The given Canadian  government Unemployment figures always have been big lies cause they are adjusted figures of people receiving UIC cheques, they do not actually sate all of the people unemployed who do not qualify for UIC, have been forced to go onto social welfare or have to get part time jobs with no fringe benefits or have become self employed which is a costly undertaking. Notice how often news media do not agree on the same news story, facts and how they lie about the real estate news, generally encouraging people to buy a new home of course.. get more debts.. In Toronto “New home sales jumped to 3,782 in June 2009 from 3,544 last June, a 7 per cent increase, and total sales hit 10,951 from 8,596 – a 27 per cent hike. But housing starts declined to 1,395 from 2,567 in the same period, a 46 per cent drop, and new listings declined to 13,357 from 16,068, a 17 per cent fall-off.”  http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/08/21/canadas-unemployment-figures-lie/

watch what happens in Israel and the Middle East.

 

Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West

Almost 70 years ago, Europe found itself at war with one of the most sinister figures in modern history: Adolf Hitler. When the last bullet of World War II was fired, over 50 million people were dead, and countless countries were both physically and economically devastated. Hitler?s bloody struggle sought to forge the world anew, in the crucible of Nazi values. How could such a disaster occur? How could the West have overlooked the evil staring it in the face, for so long, before standing forcefully against it?

Today, we find ourselves confronted by a new enemy, also engaged in a violent struggle to transform our world. As we sleep in the comfort of our homes, a new evil rises against us. A new menace is threatening, with all the means at its disposal, to bow Western Civilization under the yoke of its values. That enemy is Radical Islam.

Using images from Arab TV, rarely seen in the West, Obsession reveals an ?insider’s view’ of the hatred the Radicals are teaching, their incitement of global jihad, and their goal of world domination. With the help of experts, including first-hand accounts from a former PLO terrorist, a Nazi youth commander, and the daughter of a martyred guerilla leader, the film shows, clearly, that the threat is real.

A peaceful religion is being hijacked by a dangerous foe, who seeks to destroy the shared values we stand for. The world should be very concerned.

“Twenty years ago, while at an International Association of Fire Chief Conference, I had an opportunity to talk with fire officers from Israel. During our conversation, they told me if I would like to see what America would deal with in years to come, watch what happens in Israel and the Middle East. They will bring it to our shores.

In a Washington Times article by Sara Carter, August 8, 2007 she wrote, “approximately 20 Arab persons a week utilizing the Travis County Court in Austin to change their names and driver’s licenses from Arabic to Hispanic surnames.” Why would they be doing this I wonder? There are an estimated 5,000 trained terrorists already in the United States. What is our government doing about it?

This is from investigative journalist Paul Sperry’s book, Infiltration, page xv. ”Perhaps the most shocking news of all, the main FBI translator program, based in the Washington field office, is a den of deceit and dual loyalties, a place where mistranslations of al-Qaida intercepts by Muslim and Arab linguists is commonplace, say agents and translators who have worked there.

Take former FBI linguist Sibel Dinez Edmonds. When she showed up for her first day of work at the field office, a week after the 9/11 attacks, she expected to find a somber atmosphere. Instead, she was offered cookies filled with dates from party bowls set out in the room where other Middle Eastern linguists with top-secret security clearance translate terror-related communications. The cause for the celebration? The 9/11 attacks. Some of her colleagues openly and loudly derided the country they are paid to protect. With her Arab supervisor looking on, another Arab translator sneered: “It’s about time they got a taste of what they’ve been giving the Middle East.” (Letter by Sible D. Edmonds to Senate Judiciary Committee and the 9/11 Commission, 6 January 2004, 5.) It gets worse. The language services squad is the frontline in the FBI’s war on terrorism, collecting all foreign language tips, information, and terrorist threats to homeland security. Agents act on what the squad translates and reports back to them. The sooner agents get the information, the sooner they can thwart terrorist attacks. Investors have missed clues to both the 1993 and 2001 World Trade Center attacks because they were buried in a backlog of untransulated wiretaps and documents in Arabic, a backlog that is growing. Despite the mountain of untransulated material, which could hold clues to the next al-Qaida attack, Edmonds says her supervisor ordered her and other translators to just let the work pile higher. Why? To compel Congress to boost their department budget. The supervisor was promoted to running the Arabic desk, the key to intercepting the al-Qaida plots, after he threatened to sue the FBI for racial discrimination.”Now this is bad, really bad, but it does not end there. In the February 2008, The Limbaugh Letter, there is an interview with Kenneth Timmerman, author of Shadow Warriors: The Untold Story of Traitors, Saboteurs, and the Party of Surrender.

In his book, Timmerman states as we were going into Iraq, in March and April of 2003, there were CIA teams on the ground that were dead set against the Administration’s plan, which was to empower the Iraqi National Congress—-which was a coalition of groups, including Kurds, Shies, Sunnis—- that was lead by Ahmed Chalabi, who the CIA absolutely hated. CIA agents were going into Anbar Providence and other places saying, “How can we help you create some kind of alternative. We do not want to have Chalabi in office, either. They were giving money to these Sunni sheiks in Unbar Province, and they were the ones, who in fact, within weeks turned millions of dollars over to the former Baathists and to al Qaeda people and launched the insurgency.” This funded the beginning of the insurgency. It makes no difference if you are for or against the Iraq war; it makes a difference when American’s decide to use our tax dollars to fund those insurgents who are killing against troops. Why are we being lied to by our elected and appointed officials? In Timmerman’s book, page xxi he states,After the 9/11 attacks, FBI Director Mueller assured Americans that the nineteen al-Qaida hijackers operated alone when they lived here, that they were relatively isolated and got no help or support from the Muslim community. According to him, 9/11 was just the result of a few bad apples.

Only, he was not leveling with the American people.

In fact, the Joint Inquiry into 9/11 by Congress found that a number of Muslims provided the hijackers with “substantial” assistance, including finding housing, opening bank accounts, obtaining driver’s licenses, locating flight schools, and facilitating other transactions. What’s more, some of the hijackers were in various degrees of contact with more than a dozen American Muslims who at some point had come under FBI investigation for terrorism activities. And some of the mosques the hijackers attended in California, Florida, Virginia, Arizona, and Maryland were also attended by persons of interest to the FBI. Even before al-Qaida attacked, the bureau was conducting full-field investigations of fifty-seven individuals connected to al-Qaida. (The 9/11 Commission Report) and they are just the time pf the iceberg.”

Here is what the 9/11 Commission called the “radical Islam.” It is just Islam in practice.I call it the body bombs in Wal-Mart attacks.

The latest from our government.

DHS Warns Of Pregnant Prosthetic Belly Bombings

“New Wave Of Terrorism Carried Out By Women Wearing Loaded Pregnant Suits

Reporting Sean Hennessey WASHINGTON (CBS) ― The FBI and Department of Homeland Security are warning against a new type of terrorism carried out by women who appear to be pregnant.

It may be the newest wave in suicide attacks: a prosthetic pregnant belly serving as a compartment for explosives. The belly opens up from the front and the explosives are placed inside.

“It’s not the first time we’ve had women involved before in one way or another,” says security expert Robert Strang.

Strang tells CBS 2 he isn’t surprised at the new lows terrorists will stoop to—lows that include those with Down syndrome even carrying out suicide attacks in Baghdad.

“They’re recruiting anybody they can get to do those things that’s not going to inform law enforcement, that’s not going to be a threat to these organizations that can get the job done,” says Strang.

With terrorist training camps up and running in Pakistan, there are now fears Americans might one day be involved. Authorities are increasingly worried that Al Qaeda is actively recruiting people who look like Americans and sound like Americans to carry out the next attack on America.

“Whether it’s Americans or whether it’s people who can launch from Europe, because they have visas or passports that allow them to travel to the United States, they are looking at people who can operate in the west,” says Philip Mudd of the FBI.

Authorities say there is “no specific, credible intelligence” that says terrorists are planning to use women and suicide bombers to attack, but the warning was sent to agencies across the country in the wake of recent attacks overseas.
