In the face of persistent unemployment, homelessness is once again becoming a visible problem for the United States – with tent cities springing up in President Obama’s own Hawaii backyard, Jerome Corsi’s Red Alert reports.
In what Corsi called an embarrassment to the White House, a sprawling “Obamaville” tent city has appeared on 50 acres of Navy and city land directly behind Waipahu High School.
The following is a YouTube video posted in March that shows some Hawaii homeless encampments found by a mission team:
In the Great Depression of the 1930s, tent cities where thousands of unemployed homeless resided were known as “Hoovervilles,” after President Herbert Hoover.
The Waipahu High School “Obamaville” drew unwanted national attention during an episode of “Dog the Bounty Hunter” on the A&E network when Duane “Dog” Chapman and his bounty-hunter family discovered some 60 different homeless encampments in the 50 acres behind the Oahu high school.
The Honolulu Star Advertiser reported that Doran J. Porter, executive director of the Affordable Housing and Homeless Alliance, believes more and more homeless encampments like the Obamaville behind Waipahu High School are springing up in Oahu as the Honolulu police and city officials drive the homeless off the island’s beaches and out of city parks.
Still, on June 22, the White House along with several cabinet offices launched a new national strategy proposed by the Interagency Council on Homelessness to deliver a plan “to finish the job of ending veteran and chronic homelessness by 2015 and among families, youth and children by 2020.”
“Remarkably, socialists never learn that large government bureaucracies have a history of perpetuating, not solving, the social problems they were constituted to solve,” Corsi wrote.
He said an Obama administration mortgage-modification program was doomed to fail from the start, much like Obama’s new homelessness initiative is certain to fail.
Corsi wrote, “In both cases, the only real solutions lie with jobs and the creation of strong families in which children can be educated with skills that make more likely their own future employment and ability to create families.”

Red Alert’s author, whose books “The Obama Nation” and “Unfit for Command” have topped the New York Times best-sellers list, received his Ph.D. from Harvard University in political science in 1972. For nearly 25 years, beginning in 1981, he worked with banks throughout the U.S. and around the world to develop financial services marketing companies to assist banks in establishing broker/dealers and insurance subsidiaries to provide financial planning products and services to their retail customers. In this career, Corsi developed three different third-party financial services marketing firms that reached gross sales levels of $1 billion in annuities and equal volume in mutual funds. In 1999, he began developing Internet-based financial marketing firms, also adapted to work in conjunction with banks.
In his 25-year financial services career, Corsi has been a noted financial services speaker and writer, publishing three books and numerous articles in professional financial services journals and magazines.
