Walking around New Orleans´ Lower Ninth Ward neighborhood, people are still angry at the impact of Hurricane Katrina and how unprepared the city was for the massive storm nearly 13 years on. But now some of their wrath is directed at Brad Pitt and his charity Make It Right. After the levees of the city´s industrial canal were breached, the Lower Ninth Ward of predominantly black and low-income families was decimated by the floods, with most houses swept away or left in ruins. Among the first to lend a helping hand was Pitt, who - along with his then wife Angelina Jolie - owned a house in New Orleans and set up the

Comments:
*charity have disappeared from New Orleans and some fear they will be forced to abandon poorly built properties

I´m literally speechless!! Certain areas of the country require specialized home designs for a reason - to withstand the weather conditions. It is a shame that Brad Pitt and his charity didn´t pay attention to this when they decided to used the 9th ward as a social experiment.

Please note proper way to split and post a Daily Mail (UK) excessively long headline. LCom Staff.

Looks like the wood wasn´t treated to withstand that type of climate. In any case, it´s a hurricane-prone area so eventually there will be another Katrina.

So he built a tad over 100 instead of 150 and he wasn´t qualified to vet contractors.

Beats the hell out of the proportional promise fulfillment of the Clintons in Haiti.

It would seem to me that he still did far more than the vast majority of well-heeled folks.

How do we know he wasn´t fleeced by the throngs of unscrupulous contractors who descended upon the scene to make a fast buck?

I´m no fan of the Hollywood elite and their insatiable thirst to feed their enormous egos but I´m not ready to reach unyielding conclusions in this case with what has been presented.

More coherent than most DM articles. I can´t understand where all that money went for 100 houses. (In fact the article doesn´t actually tell how much was spent.)

It looks like every house was a custom design. That alone would drive up every building cost.

And putting solar power on each house isn´t cheap even today. And a decade ago it cost much more.

I can´t blame Pitt. He got the organization running. It was natural that he would depart at some point.

Every other place affected by Katrina fixed things up and moved on years ago. The New Orleans welfare crowd still expects to be taken care of by someone. I´ll bet some of them are still squatting on that bridge, waiting for someone to rescue them.

So Brad Pitt "only" built 100 homes? If they were livable for even a few years it meant something. I am not a fan of the Hollywood people but this sounds like a much better effort than the Clintons´ millions that were never spent in Haiti. I wonder how much the occupants did to keep things up.

When will people take responsibility for their own situations? Thirteen years? C´mon!

Here´s an idea!
Let´s build 150 homes in an area below sea level, with a history of flooding. And instead of coming up with a practical cookie cutter design, let´s have lots of architects come up with ´unique´ designs.
Then let´s find 150 families stupid enough to buy those flood prone houses, with mold growing on the very first board nailed up!

Honestly, I think Brad Pitt had a good heart, but empty head, in doing this. I really believe he is one of the better people in Hollyweird, but still allows PC ideals to make him do really stupid things!!!!!

Anyone who has lived in the gulf coast area knows that you have to build with the proper materials to withstand the hot and humid weather, with all the corresponding mold, termites, etc, etc, etc. Many of those materials would certainly NOT be considered "green" materials!!!!!!! And you pretty much constantly need to be painting and replacing rotten boards to keep mold and moisture and creepy crawlys from ruining your house!!!

In this area of New Orleans, you have lots of poor people without the money or skills (and sadly, without the motivation much of the time) to properly maintain a nice house. Building those same houses out of "green" materials that certainly weren´t designed for the heat and humidity of New Orleans set them up for massive failure.

They should have built nice spec houses out of traditional building materials, and spent the extra money teaching them how to properly maintain their houses, and we wouldn´t be having these discussions today!!!

Looks like a perfect storm of shoddy materials, city officials on the take not doing proper inspections/permitting, and residents neglecting their properties. I think Brad Pitt honestly tried to help but the project was supervised by unqualified and/or dishonest contractors and government officials. It’s a shame but I’m not going to blame Pitt.

Throwing money at something does not mean it will work. If he really knew what he was doing, he would have stayed there and overseen the job until it was done. He was waaaaay over his head. Maybe now the liberal do-gooders will realize that throwing money to people who don´t know what they are doing doesn´t work. That is why so many government programs fail. He just has money to waste.

#8 - Brad and Jolie talk about donating to charity. Here´s how this works - they created their own charity. Lots of big shot actors have done the same. So when they donate to charity, they are donating to themselves. I´m sure that´s what he used for this. I know his heart was in the right place but sometimes things are not as easy as they seem. Stick to acting, Brad.

Brad would have been better off not doing anything for these ingrates but the publicity was probably worth it at the time.

I saw pictures of those homes right after construction and they were already beginning to come apart.

Senator Chuck Schumer was asked a very awkward question in front of the Supreme Court Tuesday. The Democratic minority leader held a press conference in front of the Supreme Court to decry Trump’s pick for the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh has received scorn from liberals who claim he will overturn Roe v. Wade and repeal Obamacare. Before taking questions, Schumer attacked conservative outlets The Heritage Foundation and The Federalist Society for vetting the SCOTUS candidates and said Kavanaugh would be harmful to women’s health in America. The first question asked by a reporter was incredible:

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh allegedly mouthed the word “b*tch” at an image of Hillary Clinton during former President Bill Clinton’s 1997 State of the Union address. “I saw one of Ken Starr’s deputies, Brett Kavanaugh, who was sitting across from me, mouth the word b*tch when the camera panned to Hillary,” Media Matters founder David Brock wrote in his 2002 book Blinded by the Right. The excerpt from the book was tweeted by Robert Costa, a far-left reporter at the anti-Trump Washington Post.

And Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer vowed to oppose President Donald Trump´s nominee with ´everything I´ve got.´ Kavanaugh´s long record includes his 12 years as a judge with nearly 300 written opinions, a multitude of scholarly articles, a paperwork trail from his time in the Bush White House, and thousands of documents from when he served on the Starr investigation.

Nancy Pelosi Trashes June Jobs Report, Warns

Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) trashed the June jobs report — even though it showed rapid job growth, rising wages, and low unemployment. The report from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics showed that employers created 213,000 new jobs in June — 22,000 more than economists had expected. Manufacturing jobs in particular rose by 36,000. The unemployment rate rose slightly, from 3.8% to 4.0% — but that was partly because so many people are entering (or re-entering) the labor force.

President Trump has now been in office a year and a quarter. President Trump’s results when compared to those of President Obama at the same time are stunning. In every economic measurement, President Trump far out-performs President Obama. The mainstream media and Democrat Party continue to smear President Trump with the fake Russia collusion narrative.

Former FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday said “history has its eyes on us” and encouraged Americans to vote for Democrats in the upcoming midterm elections. Comey, who was fired by President Donald Trump in May 2017, issued a tweet urging Americans to snub Republicans this November. “This Republican Congress has proven incapable of fulfilling the Founders’ design that ‘Ambition must … counteract ambition,’” tweeted the former FBI director, a longtime supporter of Republicans. “All who believe in this country’s values must vote for Democrats this fall. History has its eyes on us.” James Comey ? @Comey This Republican Congress has proven incapable of fulfilling the

A White House stenographer says she resigned over the Trump administration´s lack of respect for her office after President Trump reduced the roles of the White House position. Beck Dorey-Stein, who worked as a stenographer for the White House during the second half of the Obama administration, told CNN´s New Day on Wednesday that Trump´s refusal to allow stenographers in the room for meetings and interviews with some journalists crossed a line. "I quit because I couldn´t be proud of where I worked anymore," Dorey-Stein said. "I felt like President Trump was lying to the American people, and also ... not even

Rep. Maxine Waters warned supporters on Wednesday of potential "armed protests" against her after an extremist group called for ongoing demonstrations outside her office in Los Angeles. In a lengthy statement issued late Wednesday, Waters, D-Calif., said she’d been notified about forthcoming protests by the Oath Keepers, which she described as "an anti-government militia" that´s staged armed protests in cities across the country.

Email Scandal: Last week we learned that a "foreign entity" may have been secretly receiving Hillary Clinton´s emails while she was Secretary of State, including many that contained classified information. And that the FBI apparently ignored this information during its "investigation." The reaction by the press to this bombshell? Crickets. At one point during Peter Strzok´s congressional testimony last week, Rep. Louie Gohmert made a stunning claim: FBI investigators were told that Clinton´s emails had been surreptitiously forwarded to a "foreign entity." And the FBI investigators who were allegedly conducting a thorough, unbiased, professional probe into Clinton´s

House Democrats are now pivoting away from their “Better Deal” slogan, according to Politico. In a private meeting Wednesday, House Democrats announced that they will be employing the new slogan “For the People” in the 2018 midterm elections. “We have 110 days from right now until Election Day and we will be spending the month of August in our home districts and we wanted to make sure we are singing from the same song sheet on the three top issues,” Rep. Cheri Bustos (D-IL), co-chair of House Democrats’ messaging arm, told Politico. The new slogan will accompany a focus on

A video has emerged showing Melania Trump apparently looking horrified after shaking Vladimir Putin´s hand during her husband´s summit with the Russian president. Putin can be seen smiling and nodding in the clip as he is introduced to Melania by President Trump in Helsinki, Finland on Monday. Melania, who is a few inches taller than the ex-spy strongman, also smiles during the handshake in an apparently natural way. (Video/Photos) But as soon as Putin releases her hand and diverts his attention elsewhere, Melania pulls a bizarre face representing what appears to be her shock or horror. She widens her eyes

If there´s anything that lays out how arrogant and entitled the Democratic Party is, take a look at how many Democratic grandees´ feathers are being ruffled by Democratic Socialist "it girl" Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who defeated a ten-term Democratic incumbent in their Bronx-Queens congressional district earlier this month and who now outshines them all. It´s not that her socialism or her ignorance of world affairs bothers them, the way it does us.
