Kansas City will kick hundreds of rentals off Airbnb, Vrbo this week. Here’s why

Kansas City Star | Sept. 20, 2023

Vacation rental giant Airbnb lists “over 1,000” places to stay in Kansas City. But by tomorrow, nearly half of that number could be gone. It’s all due to Kansas City’s recent ordinance governing short-term rentals within city limits. The rule, which went into effect on June 15, requires hosts to register their short-term rentals with the city and follow new rules like data reporting, added safety measures and paying a flat fee and a city tax on each unit.

As of Tuesday, only 539 units had registered as short-term rental locations. The rest will no longer be allowed to operate or advertise their services on booking sites like Airbnb and Vrbo once the city’s three-month grace period ends Friday. “We’ve actually already sent the list to the different booking platforms,” said Forest Decker, director of the city’s Neighborhood Services Department. “We are kind of stepping up our level of aggressiveness.”

  1. Thanks to the oppressive edicts pertaining to taxation, passed along by our dual citizen – owned banking system, dozens of new, sly ways to garner tax revenue ultimately achieves their primary goal; oppression and poverty. Since the west originally fled Europe because of these corrupting bankers and their covert toadies in business/government in an ettempt to seperate themselves from oppression, through ignorance and complacency we’ve ended up crushed under the same type of devils in spite of repeated warnings from our predecessors;

    Jesus answered:“My Kingdom is no part of this world. If my Kingdom were part of this world, my attendants would have fought that I should not be handed over to the Jews. But as it is, my Kingdom is not from this source.”

    Thomas Jefferson on private banking;
    “I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies,” Jefferson wrote. ” If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around (these banks) will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”
    “The issuing power of currency shall be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.”

    WASHINGTON, GEORGE, in Maxims of George Washington by A. A. Appleton & Co. “They (the Jews) work more effectively against us, than the enemy’s armies. They are a hundred times more dangerous to our liberties and the great cause we are engaged in… It is much to be lamented that each state, long ago, has not hunted them down as pest to society and the greatest enemies we have to the happiness of America.”

    Sharon told Shimon Peres, former president and prime minister of Israel: “Every time we do something you tell me America will do this and will do that … I want to tell you something very clear: Don’t worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it.”

    One might say our predecessors, through courage and determination fled the Jew and his evils to the “new world” only to end up in the same sewage by virtue of his self imposed ignorance/complacency.
