WHO is Hogar Community RE Investment LLC based in Phoenix, a District of Columbia LLC buying up bank owned properties in NEO

Submitted by mabeldog on Mon, 09/30/2013 - 15:59.

 In the Brooklyn Centre battle against the city of Cleveland over WC Reed field, I have been researching property transfers on West 15th street. This lead me to a discovery that parcel 00827061 at 3708 West 15th street, which no longer has a house on it, as it was torn down quickly without the owner of the foreclosed property US Bank being aware of this demolition, was sold on September 16, 2013 for $56,500...for a VACANT LOT...to Hogar Community Reinvestment LLC at 1001 N 3rd Ave Suite 1 in Phoenix Arizona, a District of Columbia limited liability company, not licensed in Ohio.

Submitted by Quest-News-Serv... on Wed, 09/18/2013 - 19:02.

More and more people are wondering what does the government know that they aren’t telling the masses? What are they are preparing for? Some type of pandemic? A terrorist attack they know is going to happen but haven’t bothered to inform the public? Is it ISON? 

The video below shows massive preparations being made for a 100,000 person national disaster system mobilization team,  for 1,000 locations, on just 48 hours notice.

WARD 14 Politics....the real statistic after the primary 2013....68% against Brian Cummins

Submitted by ANGELnWard14 on Wed, 09/11/2013 - 01:54.

Let me understand this......707 people voted against incumbant, Brian Cummins out of 1028....68.77% of the voters were against him...but he still won?

I think it's time to really consider how you may have won the primary and potentially will win the General Election.........but Perhaps it is time to do the real math where the Voters spoke loudly. What is going wrong with your position in the Ward 14.... think about it Brian Cummins...Soul search about that math.....it says alot.

I would think this information is in the public interest. More government snooping, prying, control without any public input.

Syrian Al-Quaeda-linked rebels are the ones who set off the chemical attack, not Assad.

I called Congressman Brown’s Cleveland office, 216-522-7272, last Friday, and gave the staffer an earful as to my opinions about the possible strike in Syria, Benghazi, the Patriot Act, Homeland Security (and many other federal agencies) buying enormous quantities of hollow point bullets (which I later learned are against the Geneva Convention, yet a year or two ago, one of his staffers unconcernedly told me that yes, they had to get them, because they are supposed to practice with what they are going to use--against whom, us?), habeas co

FULL TIME JOB IN CLEVELAND....being a quota for the system to sustain it's federal funding for administrators...and laymen...

Submitted by ANGELnWard14 on Thu, 08/29/2013 - 01:35.

 Did you recently lose your job? 

Need some help? Just a little til you get by? Soon; you'll learn what a full time job it is chasing all these programs for assistance that are meant to stabilize you which actually put you in further default if you allow it. 

Trust me...get a lawnmower and a shovel; offer landscaping to neighbors before you submit to this nightmare network of being used as a pawn for the purpose of serving as a quota....

Nice Work If You Can Get It : VACATION

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Wed, 08/28/2013 - 15:02.

Vacation today includes your smart phone.  And a SeaDoo! (or a boat)  And money.  

In lots of vacation places,   all of the above are required.    You have to be prepared and work  to get that vacation. 

Still, very exhilarating on a warm rock in the hot sun with orange lichen against the blue water.
