TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! COUNCIL LADY JOLIE JUSTUS JUXTAPOSITION: IS KANSAS CITY'S GREATEST LGBT ACTIVIST OUR BIGGEST NEIGHBORHOOD DISAPPOINTMENT?!?



Without question Kansas City voters were excited at the prospect of State Senator Jolie Justus serving on the City Council and bringing her fiery brand of culture war activism to City Hall.

While she never passed a single noteworthy bill in Jeff City . . . Jolie Justus was undeniably brilliant when it came to rallying the base of Democratic and LGBT denizens into a frenzy that later worked to ramp up statewide races wherein Democratic Party leaders were able to pull off a number of upsets in a solidly red state.

However, Council Lady Jolie Justus might be a victim of her own success inasmuch as City Hall is one of the most progressive work environments in all of the Midwest. 12th & Oak was among the first to tout equal healthcare and benefits for LGBT couples and now that gay marriage is the law of the land . . . There simply isn't any bad guy to fight among the denizens of council chambers who are overwhelmingly progressive.

Accordingly . . .

COUNCIL LADY JOLIE JUSTUS HAS DEFINED HER TENURE WITH SUPPORT OF UNPOPULAR CORPORATE AND ELITIST PROJECTS THAT HAVE PROVEN UNPOPULAR WITH MOST NEIGHBORHOOD RESIDENTS!!!

Let's review . . .

- Council Lady Jolie Justus seems to be the wind beneath the wings of the unpopular idea of a new MCI single-terminal airport.

- Council Lady Justus leads the anti-violence task force that has been renowned as a bad joke within the urban core and among 2nd Amendment advocates.

- Council Lady Jolie Justus championed a shoddy liquor ordinance that now confronts neighborhood petition and an impending repeal.

To be fair, she recently won a bit of praise for opposing 18th & Vine subsidy . . . And her supporters are STILL pushing her to run for Mayor.

Meanwhile, this beloved and still very popular political lady simply hasn't found her grassroots, up-with-the-people, activist niche that helped to identify her as a Democratic Party crusader in Jeff City . . .

The reality is that Mayor Sly and the cadre of lawyers working at City Hall have TURNED COUNCIL LADY JOLIE JUSTUS INTO A BIT OF A WOLF IN SHEEP'S CLOTHING in the constant struggle betwixt developers and neighborhood concerns that have defined the tenure of Mayor Sly James.

You decide . . .

Reality Tk, if she ran for mayor today. She would win. Like it or not, as you say.

You forgot about her non stop support for Hillary -- that doesn't win many friends or influence people in Missouri.

Show me a gay woman who isn't a "DISAPPOINTMENT"

8:35 You are no doubt one dumb pussy who was probably raised by two gay women.

Lady Justus


This post is pretty good Saturday morning comedy.

8:35 is probably correct. After all, in the land of the blind, the one eyed man is king.

NO FOOLING, someone can actually for fill their need for attention by expressing their misery about where they choose to live.

And you want to deport those that get up at 5 AM to earn $10 an hour because they are taking away jobs from 'mericans?

I actually will enjoy checking in during November to hear all the rationalization and hear the call of "Hillary is coming for our weapons".

This is a bit more fun than watching the neighbor kid scrape dog-shit off his shoe because he was not looking where he was going.

She lost me when she said it was o.k. to murder an 8 month old fetus in the womb.

She is a huge disappointment. She had an opportunity to do good things but she chose to be the Mayor's puppet. Now, she just as incompetent as the others. She can't possibly know how to curb violence on the eastside . That was one of the dumbest propositions she's been involved in to date.

Jaded said...

She has turned into a jaded politician who caters to the rich what a shame she has been exposed ,in Jeff she was able to hide it now we are seeing the true Jolie and its not pretty.

She's no more of a disappointment than the other newbies, who were all supposedly going to bring some independence and fresh ideas to the council.
But they all come from the same D-list wannabe celebrity gene pool as electeds regularly do in KCMO and who quickly fall into the same routine of "what are you going to run for next?", endlessly attending worthless meetings dialoguing, facilitating, and identifying stakeholders, traveling around the country on the taxpayers' dime, sucking up to insiders and swells, being rolled by one interest group or another, and otherwise ignoring the most basic responsibilities they owe to the people who elected them.
Justus fits perfectly into the menagerie.
It's hard to be disappointed when your expectations are so low.
And realistic!

Everyone I have supported for council has been a neighborhood disappointment.

^^^^ OUCH.

what has jolie really accomplished? that's what I'd like to know.

Any takers?

A lot of people think Jolie is doing a great job. While it might be true that there is no Republican majority to fight, I think her work to promote business and spark development shows she has versatility. She can do more than one thing and that's the kind of leader KC needs.

Anonymous said...

^^^^^ Agree. Even Tony must acknowledge that people generally like Jolie and that is a good thing!

Stop picking on Jolie.

Jolie Justus' Failed Efforts


Reminds me of the dimwitted woman who, after a heavy rain, stuck her head in a dyke and died with a mouthful of urine!!

Anonymous said...

The biggest issues for Jolie Justus, she turns a deaf ear to neighborhoods ,unless its someone from tight knitted inner circle.
Jolie Justus never returns emails or even acknowledges them from her constituents.
No one should have to go to Tower Tavern or any bar for that matter.
Jolie is VERY unprofessional, arrogant, flippant and most importantly,she simply takes her position for granted.
Many of us supported, campaigned and mindlessly voted her into het position year after year.
We are done ,we didn't elect her to yhe City Council to be Mayor Slydog's poodle.
Jolie Justus must go

Translation: I keep emailing Jolie with my tinfoil hat conspiracies and she is not doing anything to solve my imaginary problems. for instance, my dog keeps telling me the toy train stole all the sewer money, so I quit flushing my toilet. I have mailed Jolie 83 times because my dog has bad breath but she won't come brush it's teeth.

Jolie is not a good council person.

She will not be reelected because she has shown time and time again that she does not respect or show any interest in her constituents. I hear she wants to run for mayor and she could win because of her friends in her law firm but when it comes to the real demands of a district that is one of KC's most populated and engaged, Jolie was simply not up to the task.

So she ran for council just to improve gay life?

7:14 is typical of the "bobble heads" that support Jolie Justus.
The Mayor's crime commission is in total disarray due to Jolie.
Now the City is planning 20th Century Policing, and the same inept neighborhood leaders will giving their uniformed input.
Jolie is not the only Council person who needs to be shown the door.
"Dont let the the door hit you on the way out.
