TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! EMERGENCY: KANSAS CITY CHANGING THE RULES TO PAY POLSINELLI PC FOR EVEN MORE TOY TRAIN STREETCAR WORK!!!



The Kansas City Toy Train Streetcar money grab is right on track and here's the latest tidbit that garnering a great deal of attention from local critics but remains almost completely unreported by mainstream media.

Check it:

CITY HALL WILL SOON CHANGE THE CITY'S CHARTER IN ORDER TO HIRE THE POLSINELLI PC LAW FIRM FOR MORE KANSAS CITY TOY TRAIN STREETCAR WORK!!!

It's not really pretty but the sitch remains a captivating look at how local government really works . ..



Here's the proof . . .

Ordinance #130944

"Waiving a requirement of Section 2-83(a), Code of Ordinances, and authorizing the City Attorney to execute a contract with Polsinelli PC, for the provision of legal services in connection with the creation of one or more Transportation Development Districts; and recognizing an emergency."

The new contracts should cover streetcar expansion, new lines and even more elections that smarter people than TKC have called corrupt.



Justification:

WHEREAS, Polsinelli PC, occasionally represents clients in litigation or negotiations with the City and is willing to represent the City in any TDD efforts only if the law firm is able to continue to represent those clients and other such clients in the future; and

WHEREAS, the Council does not believe that the City’s interests in any TDD efforts will be adversely affected by Polsinelli PC’s representation of other current or future clients in matters adverse to the City . . . 




TKC Talking Points . . .

- Tossing aside the City Charter to pay Polsinelli for more toy train streetcar work is yet another example of local democracy corrupted for the sake of shaky eco-devo schemes.

- The sweetest way for local lawyer sharks to get paid is to work both sides of any argument . . . A devil's threesome with City Hall and their multi-billion dollar budget might make an EPIC windfall for generations.

- So far the Kansas City Toy Train Streetcar has subsidized PR consultants, marketing groups and law firms but we still haven't learned the names of any new biz that it has attracted to Kansas City.

Don't be a hater. This could be the best thing to happen in Kansas City for years.

And that, at 9:01, represents the entire intellectual argument in favor of a streetcar. The "because it will be neat" cheerleader argument.

Notice how no sponsor is listed?

No one wants to even put their name on this turd.

There certainly are a lot of emergencies in this city.

...none of which involve getting criminals off the streets or educating children.

I promise you that the people excited about streetcar have no idea how corrupt/expensive the process is. They're not interested in the way our government operates so long as they can tweet at their friends how frosty it is to ride the train down Main street and Instagram photos of cyclists played out on streetcar tracks with the hash tag #MindTheGap.

What the hell good is a city charter that can be changed by the city commission with no ratification from the voters? For fuck sake what geniuses in this town ever let that happen?

oy these corrupt bastards. why do governments and corporations insist so stridently on destroying their own legitimacy? it creates tremendous levels of cognitive dissonance in ordinary folks who buy into their public relations campaigns and are wary to radicalize or join social movements. if they werent so corrupt, we wouldnt have these problems.

lawyers and incompetent city governments need each other to exist. Watch for large sums of cash being transferred to re-election accounts.

so there wont be a vote by the people to toss out the city charter? why not stand on the steps of city hall and just burn the constitution and the city charter at the same time? we could get tech9's back up dancers and singers "the bullet hoppers" to sing back up while its done
Is anyone got a solution? will anyone call for a recall for all the City Council and the Mayor? how can the National News ignore that?

This is NOT a Charter change. It's an ordinance change, and it happens. It's not an unusual or secretive event.

You guys are simply nuts. This is done all the time. See Ordinance 130942 which is also pending

@ 1:19 and 1:20pm, you are obviously a City official to take this so personal that you believe that the answer to this problem is to insult the people who have no way of knowing what it is you do in that big giant building where nothing comes out of in the best interest of the people and all anyone says is its corrupt, self serving and nothing but lies, so on top of all of that we have to be nuts to? maybe thats the problem, you think you were elected to babysit people as if they were semi retarded and not capable of making educated decisions that would be in their own best interest, shame on you and the rest of that trash you call civil servants, you are nothing of the sort, you are no better than political welfare recipients and should be removed from office

At this point, I just want to see the thing get built and quickly become the spectacular failure it is destined to be. The old model no longer works for the citizens... Let it crash and burn the quicker the better.

More money down the drain. Do they have any staff lawyers at City Hall.

The Pendergast era has returned. All there no-bid consulting contracts to Sly's friends.

What the fuck had they been talking about BEFORE?!!!

Anonymous said...

it is just an ordinance change. the reason why it reads as an " emergency" is because it is an archaic charter that everyone has to work with in order to timely pay vendors.Certainly no big deal.

The city charter is bullshit and those who drafted it should be tar'd and feathered then paraded on Pershing.

1:33, obviously you are wound a little too tight. 1:19 did not sound like they were taking anything personally, nor did 1:20. They were just stating simple facts.

Only hope for KCMO taxpayers is that State will take over the corrupt City Hall.

The City Charter can be amended to put muscle into it. Start a petition drive for the changes you want.

The problem KC has is that MARC is running game on you. MARC is a member of ICLEI which is the UN's facilitator of Agenda21, the global agenda for One World Government, Religion and Currency. Sly is a member too. Everything MARC is doing to KC is counter to the constitution and every public official who is carrying out their agenda by way of sustainable growth, transit oriented development and smart growth is committing treason upon you & you & you. They're going to take your private property, your car, your a/c, your right to travel freely, your hot shower, and your vitamins...that's just for starters. If you want to learn more about the big picture, go to youtube and search on Jim Shaw or Tom DeWeese. Then go to Marc.org and look at the B.S. they're peddling (successfully) to the idiots in county and local government. Gov. Nixon has bills on his desk right now that would stop MARC's ICLEI and Agenda21/NWO activities dead in their tracks but he won't sign them - what does that tell ya?

... oops

That was Michael Shaw, not Jim.
