City Tells Man To Stop Sheltering The Homeless from the Cold or They’ll Take His House

By Matt Agorist

Chicago, IL — In the land of the free, if you try to help someone from freezing to death in subzero temperatures, you can and will be arrested and have your house stolen from you by state agents. A good Samaritan in Chicago is learning the hard way about the police state who is now forcing him to stop helping homeless people—or they will condemn his home and charge him.

When the brutally cold winter struck the Midwest last month, Greg Schiller did an amazing thing. This selfless individual opened up his empty basement to a group of homeless people who may have otherwise died sleeping out on the street. He offered them food, warm beverages, and cots to sleep on. He even provided the entertainment and played movies for them.

“I would stay up all night with them and give them coffee and stuff and feed them,” he said. What’s more, Schiller had a strict policy that no drugs or alcohol were allowed in his home.

This is Schiller’s second year of inviting the area’s homeless into his home. Last year, however, he let them sleep in his garage and even though it was sealed off from the elements, it was still too cold and EMTs were called to help a man with a heart condition. So, this year, he moved the same operation to the basement where it was nice and cozy.

Everything was going great this year until the state stepped in, however. Schiller was essentially told that even though he owns his home, he does not get a say in who gets to sleep in it.

“While we appreciate those who volunteer to provide additional resources in the community, Mr. Schiller’s house does not comply with codes and regulations that guard against potential dangers such as carbon monoxide poisoning, inadequate light and ventilation, and insufficient exits in the event of a fire,” city spokesperson Molly Center said in a statement—as if the homeless population is being forced to stay in this basement.

Once they found out that a good Samaritan would dare challenge their almighty dictate on “sleeping regulations,” the city sent in police with a warrant and told him to shut it down, or else.

“They shut me down and said I have 24 hours to return my basement to storage and take down – I have several cots with sleeping bags for everybody – or they’ll condemn the house,” said Schiller.

One would think that as this story began to get more coverage in the local press that the government would potentially back off due to backlash from the citizens. However, one would be wrong.

When confronted about the situation, Center issued a statement doubling down on Schiller’s 24-hour notice, adding, “If not, the City will take additional enforcement action to compel the removal of the unlawful basement sleeping area.”

Aside from essential theft of property via condemnation, Schiller says he was also threatened with a slew of citations. Citations—that would ultimately be enforced with police force.

“I’m trying to help these people get out of the cold,” he told NBC 5. “There’s not a lot of help for them as far as places to lay their heads.”

Sadly, however, the state would rather see the area’s homeless die—or create a burden on the already over-populated, taxpayer-funded shelters in the area—than allow good Samaritans to help them.

“Elgin has lawful shelters that provide a safe space for people to go throughout the year,” Center said in a statement. “In times of extreme temperature, temporary locations open within the community that all conform to regulations and codes.”

The area shelters, however, only open when the temperature drops below a certain threshold of 15 degrees or less. If they are one degree higher, these folks are out of luck.

“It’s cold enough to freeze to death,” Schiller said.

Sadly, because Schiller knows that if he opens up his home to those in need again, he will be cited and possibly lose his house, he is going to comply with the city order—albeit under duress.

How, exactly, will this inhumane ordinance affect those who were finding shelter at Schiller’s home? Well, according to Schiller, “Somebody’s going to die.”

    How dare he endanger the homeless with poor ventilation and lack of fire exits! Much better to freeze to death peacefully outside.

    The reason everyone’s scratching their heads wondering how they can do this is that they don’t understand the nature of the laws that bind them. When you learn the truth, all of this is explained, and the way to subvert them becomes more clear.

    According to them, we are slaves, and slaves can’t own property. Why? Because we ARE property – theirs. Capitis Diminutio Maxima (our names in caps) doesn’t represent us in flesh and blood, it represents a cestui que trust account that they own and control (and benefit from while we pay for it). We have all been called “enemies of the state” due to the bankrupcy and debt. We are living in one, big, massive open prison where we have no rights (slaves can’t have rights), only privileges for which we must first contract, then pay. Since when is getting married, having a baby, and even driving illegal? Since 1933, to be exact. We must ask permission from the government to do just about everything.

    If this gentleman who helped these poor lost souls looked at the deed to his property, it lists him as a tenant. We own nothing. Senate Document 43, 73rd Congress 1st session.

    We are nothing more than property of the federal government, which is nothing more than a foreign corporation, the US government being bankrupt and insolvent was dissolved and in its place a corporation took control. “Therefore, the U.S. citizens residing in one of the states of the union, are classified as property and franchises of the federal government as an “individual entity.” Wheeling Steel Corp. v. Fox, 298 U.S. 193, 80 LEd. 1143, 56 S.Ct. 773. March 10, 1936.

    It goes deeper: The UN has financed the operations of the United States government for over 50 years and now owns every man, woman and child in America. The UN holds ALL of the land of America in Fee Simple. Fee simple is a permanent and absolute tenure of an estate in land with freedom to dispose of it at will, especially in full fee simple absolute a freehold tenure, which is the main type of land ownership.

    • sorry that is incorrect. The Vatican, assisted by the Jesuits, own everything. They are the holders of your birth certificates and associated bonds. They own it all….

        What is incorrect? I know the Vatican owns the world, with the help of Jesuits, Zionists, freemasons, and the UN. I know the UN is an agency of the Vatican. Read my other posts. 😉

          you can google “:trusts” and Bonacci and discover the three trusts that have been put in place to govern, control and own everything. These “proclamations” began under Pope Boniface in 1306, and have never been challenged and are in effect today.

      • They, think that they do ??

  3. The state connot & will not tolerate ANYONE who makes them look bad or incompetent by supplying what they cannot & wil not do! No matter what kind of legalese they try & wrap this disgusting behaviour in.
    Fortunately& also unfortunately this man has done that & the states inhumanity to man is exposed for all too see! This wicked woman ( Molly Centre & the people she speaks for) will deserve their place in Hell!!!
    I don’t imagine that there will be any cozy place for them to rest in its extreme fires forever.
    Maybe Satan will try & shut heaven down if they try to find refuge there.

    How much more evidence will it take to show you that – Lucifer has taken over ?

  5. I DON’T SEE the STATE, stepping up to take care of the homeless.

  6. You just don’t get it yet….do you? You are owned, a slave, and you are not allowed to own ANYTHING. Since it is not yours, they can tell you to do whatever they choose. Stop your bitchin and get clued in. For starters, watch several videos from Santos Bonacci. You have no idea what you are dealing with, and we will be unable to deal with it until more become educated on our reality. Watch Bonacci….he will lay out the entire history of this ruse on this world.

    Get a clue and ask yourself why this can happen.

    • Too many complacent, uninformed, propagandized and lazy ass moronic citizens who blindly, unthinkingly handed over the reins of their lives and country and government. Too many who didn’t do their Constitutional duties as informed FREE citizens!

  8. How about if the homeowner brings the private shelter up to code? He already had a case where a man nearly died. These safety codes are not a joke. They exist to protect us, and so I think the kind homeowner can meet the safety rules if he wants to. Perhaps he could crowdfund to finance it. Just a suggestion on how to resolve this. I don’t get off on trashing those enforcing rational laws. I get off on making constructive suggestions to solve the problem.

    • Richard Olsen | January 5, 2018 at 1:12 pm | Reply

      I have a “constructive” suggestion for you. Why don’t you send the homeowner fifteen to twenty thousand of our counterfeit dollars to to meet the “safety rules” that you are so fond of. The “rules” were made to govern establishments that were established to provide lodging and other services to customers for profit. The action being taken by the government police state against a good samaritan has nothing whatever to do with anyone’s safety, or their well being. It has everything to do with control and compulsion directed at anyone who “interferes” with the elite’s drive to render us all dependents of our government masters. Contrary to the statements made by these pathological liars, the government does NOT, in that area, have available anywhere near adequate shelters, even including their own that also fail to meet those same codes. The governments, top to bottom, that exist here today care nothing about their “subjects” whatever. If a few, a few dozen, a few hundred, or even “more than a few” million, have to die in order for them to prevail in their mission to have dominion over our every act, it concerns them not.

      • I am already helping a homeless family…and are you against safety rules? Each year, 4000 die from home fires and most are caused by electrical problems that are not up to code.

        Why don’t you really do something for the homeless instead of online snarking and whining.

        • So-called “Safety Rules” are just another means for the State to extract $$$ . Always more “codes” for this & “codes” for that,Then of course $$$penalties for “non compliance”=more $$revenue.

          • I have built several houses and find safety rules to be essential to responsible construction.

            “DHAKA, Bangladesh — A factory building that collapsed last month outside Dhaka, killing more than 1,000 workers in the deadliest disaster in the history of the garment industry, was constructed with substandard materials and in blatant disregard for building codes, a high-level government report issued Wednesday concluded.

            The 400-page report on the collapse of the Rana Plaza building in Savar, an industrial suburb of Dhaka, the capital, found widespread fault for the April 24 disaster, which killed 1,127 people. It blamed the mayor for wrongly granting construction approvals and recommended charges against the building’s owner, Sohel Rana, and the owners of the five garment factories in the building that could result in life sentences if they are convicted.

            The factory owners urged workers to return to their jobs despite evidence that the building was unsafe, the report said. “They compelled them to start,” said Main Uddin Khandaker, a high-ranking official in Bangladesh’s Home Ministry, who led the investigation.

            The Rana Plaza disaster has focused global attention on unsafe conditions in the garment industry in Bangladesh, which is the world’s second-leading exporter of clothing, trailing only China. Bangladesh has more than 5,000 garment factories, handling orders for nearly all of the world’s top brands and retailers. ”

            Guess who uses slave labor (average pay for garment workers in Bangladesh is $60 a month) in Bangladesh? “The Trump Organization launched Trumpstore.com and sells a $32 Trump Golf hat made in Bangladesh and a $25 faux gold bouillion “TRUMP” coin bank made in China. The Trump Organization is still owned by the president and is managed by his sons, Eric and Donald Jr. (who promoted the opening on his Facebook page). It appears then that Trump is profiting off of foreign-made goods despite his promise to put “America first” when it comes to manufacturing.” dailybeast

            ” Ivanka Trump’s company relies exclusively on foreign factories in countries such as Bangladesh, Indonesia and China, where low-wage laborers (are employed)…”

            One of the reasons wages are low is substandard building and lack of enforcement of the “safety rules” you scorn.

          • Common Sense | January 5, 2018 at 5:08 pm |

            There none so blind as those who refuse to see.

          • I agree: those who dismiss safety and health regulations are willfully blind.
            Would you fly on a plane where the safety rules were ignored, live in a high rise where construction standards were ignored?

          • Gmo Roberts | January 5, 2018 at 7:22 pm |

            So you agree all organic food should be stopped because of the recalls. At least until they can get the issues fixed. Thanks for finally stepping up.

          • I can speak for myself, Mr GMO+Promo. Now call me a liar for the 100th time. I continue to eat organic plant-based meals and am strong and healthy at 77. That’s no lie.

          • Gmo Roberts | January 6, 2018 at 10:20 am |

            So what, I have a customer in his mid nineties raising cattle. Looks and feels like he is 65, and has never eaten organic. Big deal, it is most likely 80% your genes, 10% good luck, 9% your lifestyle and maybe 1% your diet. It still doesn’t change the fact that you are a smart ass know it all (or what you don’t you just make up which is most of it).

          • that airline would NOT be in business for long.

          • Yes, it would go out of business (or be fined) AFTER the crash. How about the buildings which do not observe building codes and are “fine” until and earthquake takes them down?

            Are you suggesting building codes, safety codes, etc have no value?

          • exactly. The only rule of the land should be to do no harm to another person or his/her property.

  9. time for communities to step forward, and nominate their own councillors – independents, not partisan
    when the people control the council, you can start rewriting the laws to be fair and real

  10. This is Vile and Evil…..can’t expect anything other than this jack booted action by the slave owners….the gub’ment. If one or more of their ‘slaves’ don’t quietly conform and conceed then the gloves come off.
    We have seen this dramatically happen several times over the past 2 years when just the BLM was challenged and defied, children threatened with laws and punishment when selling lemonade in front of their houses. Then there in Ruby Ridge and Waco with the planned and implemented annihilation of those individuals.
    The ‘rulers’ need to remember Spartacus……

  11. Just google Molly Centre 847 931 5613 that is her direct number , I called it and left a message telling her how she is going to HELL for this behaviour, I suggest that everyone who is OUTRAGED by this sheer EVIL does the same, and also maybe try to get her to tell who told her to do this cause I doubt it is all her

  12. Why does this not surprise me? I heard awhile ago that homeless people have been disappearing and that they are used for their organs. Not sure if it’s true or not, but a minister had been forbidden to hand out free food and sandwiches to the homeless, saying that there were no soup kitchens allowed to operate.

  13. This is called Tyranny.

    The American people need to understand that this is not government; it is organized crime that masquerades as government. Your ‘government’ was overthrown back during the Civil War. It is a war that continues. It is a war of deception carried out by the Synagogue of Satan (those claiming to be Jews, but are not. Rev. 3:9).
    You are living in a communist country. Take the time to understand how the 10 elements of communism work. Waging war against the people or aiding and abetting our enemies is the definition of treason. It is a capital offense. People need to understand this and unite.
