YOU DECIDE!!! IS IT RIGHT FOR KANSAS CITY MAYOR SLY AND CONGRESSMAN CLEAVER TO EQUATE DEADLY POLICE SHOOTINGS WITH RACIAL TERRORISM IN DALLAS?!?



Two of Kansas City's top elected officials are making bold analogies to all of this week's tragic violence and the juxtaposition just might offend a great many of their constituents.

More importantly . . .

FIRST AND FOREMOST, MAYOR SLY JAMES TARGETS GUN RIGHTS IN HIS COMMENTS ABOUT THE DEADLY DALLAS SHOOTINGS AGAINST COPS!!!

His first tweet on the topic from earlier today:



And then . . . More deets from the anti-gun Mayor of Kansas City:

“You’ve got police officers being shot at from high altitudes by people with killing machines,” says James. “Weapons that were meant for war. The type of weapon I used when I was in the Marine Corps.”

“The bottom line is none of these folks should have died,” James says. “Not a single one. It wasn’t necessary.”

As he often does, James says he feels hamstrung by Missouri gun laws, which in his opinion does little to keep deadly weapons out of the hands of those intent on causing harm.

“I can’t tell you it won’t happen here,” James says. “I can tell you I don’t think we have the tinder and the gasoline and the matches that close together that it’s going to happen here. But it could . . .”

And then . . .

In a more solemn press release . . .

Here's what Congressman Cleaver had to say . . .

Congressman Cleaver’s Statement on This Week’s Violence



WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Emanuel Cleaver, II (MO-05) released the following statement today after this week’s violence in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, St. Paul, Minnesota, and Dallas, Texas:

“The events that have taken place over the course of these last few days have been deeply troubling and disheartening… police shootings and police officers shot and killed. I extend my condolences to the families who have lost the people they love. This has to stop. We must come together regardless of party to finally put an end to all of these senseless killings. It is time to make real change and I hope it starts right here in Congress.”
###

Accordingly . . .

LIKE IT OR NOT, THE JUXTAPOSITION IS CLEAR . . . ELECTED OFFICIALS IN KANSAS CITY EQUATING REPORTEDLY RACIALLY MOTIVATED TERRORISM AGAINST LAW ENFORCEMENT WITH TRAGIC SHOOTINGS SUFFERED BY BLACK MEN DURING POLICE STOPS IS A BOLD COMPARISON THAT DOESN'T NECESSARILY GIVE LAW ENFORCEMENT THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT!!!

Whilst everybody is afraid to question any perspective of a popular politico on these hot button topics. YOU DECIDE if these opinion are representative of Kansas City . . .

What I don't like is there is no call for unity or peace. Just more partisan talking points trying to find an opportunity in this disaster. I expected better from both.

James must have been a washout in the Marine Corps if they would only issue him a semi-automatic, when all his buddies got full automatics. He's probably lucky it wasn't a BB gun.

James & Cleaver
Two idiots whose agendas are only doing or saying what they think will make them look good in the press. neither one give a real hoot n damn about all those who have died here in Kansas City this year alone by the hand of a neighbor or family member for the most part. Neither one has the balls to admit the real issues.

Just as long as black on white crime is racial terrorism too.
Goes both ways. These stupid idiot politicians are going up a slippery slope.
That kind of talk is going to create more problems.

Breaking It Down:

1) Sylvester James and Emanuel Cleaver are not too bright, verbose, narcissistic politicians.

2) James was elected with only some 21 percent of KCMO registered voters casting a ballot. He's a cheerleading puppet for the well-to-do business community which seeks to continue feeding at the public taxpayer trough. KC-area developers are seemingly incapable of lifting a finger without generous tax breaks, subsidies, exemptions, etc.

3) Cleaver likely ran an SBA carwash loan scam to fund his initial Congressional campaign. Because KC corporate media are cogs in the Democrat Party machinery, they have refused to report the truth underlying the carwash wax job. Many people have questioned Cleaver's mental state in regards to his ability to adequately represent constituents, but once again the media remains silent, just as they did for 5th District Congressional predecessor Karen McCarthy, who suffered from alcoholism and dementia.

4) Mayor James tries to give KCMO residents what they don't want (redundant ToyTrain, new airport, convention center hotel, higher taxes, etc.)....while neglecting the primary citizen concerns (infrastructure, like roads, water, sewer, sidewalks, public safety).

5) Cleaver was the pork shepherd behind the $200 million dollar Green Impact Zone boondoggle, which quickly turned green, moldy, and stunk to high heaven. Are James and Cleaver competing to see who is the Biggest Loser? Hah! That reminds me of the time Sylvester James and Jim Heeter had a public contest to lose weight and get in shape.....it was a tie.....they both lost!!!

6) Mayor James, terribly embarrassed that he's presiding over a KCMO skyrocketing homicide epidemic, reflexively kneejerks the Democratic Party's mantra of "More Gun Control."

7) Meanwhile, Cleaver squats on the House floor with his fellow Democrat "community activists", calls for restrictions on all Americans Constitutionally-protected rights, and proclaims it's the proudest day of his public service? Say what? See item number 3 above, concerning "mental state."

James and Cleaver are part and parcel of a 100% Corrupt, Bureaucatized-Inverted-Totalitarian, Police-State Government that is permeated through the city, state, and federal levels.This 'Government is owned and controlled by a global Totalitarian cabal that uses the U.S. Government and it's puppet allies as it's enforcement arm.The apex of this cabal are at least fifty percent Zionists as well as other wealthy families and a few potentates. Their goal is to strip all humanity of all of their inalienable rights, all of their wealth, and all of their property, imprison and murder them. Therefore any chance they get they will spin the dialogue to that agenda. To go along with this, there is a citizenry in America that is composed of 95-97% of socialized, indoctrinated, brainwashed, self-deluded, patriotic(conditioned), tyranny-embracing, self-policing, stand-for-nothing, fall-for-everything, worthless morons. Fortunately history has proven that a determined minority can defeat the most powerful enemy. 3-5% of the American people, the few that operate with a moral imperative, have integrity, and a will to live and survive not being constantly and increasingly oppressed, impoverished, and murdered, can defeat this most heinous cancerous-blight on humanity. This can be effected by Guerilla Warfare using asymmetric tactics. The police are the frontline protectors, defenders, and enforcers of this oppressive, impoverishing, murdering, evil, immoral Government(s). They should be encountered when the Guerilla has the advantage, with no witnesses. When the perps are arriving home from 'work', while mowing their lawn, walking their dog, running errands, etc., etc., etc. Never when they have the advantage or in any situation that could turn negative to the Guerilla warrior. Never sacrifice one's self for one of the perps; live to encounter more and more of them. That's a start!

Horrible last few days. But we should understand that this is the result of our national Original Sin -- slavery -- but also of a Supreme Court with liberal judges who are not liberal and conservative judges who are not conservative.

SCOTUS has eaten away at the Fourth Amendment -- usually as part of the foolish War on Drugs -- to expand police powers related to traffic stops. That means that a busted tail light stop -- at most a annoying delay for the old, white and middle-class -- can legally be justified to search drivers and passengers and vehicle. It is not a coincidence that this intense police activity occurs primarily with the non-white and young. Every expired tag or broken taillight becomes an excuse for intrusive, humiliating investigation. God forbid you should be young, black or brown, and have forgotten to pay a parking ticket!

Then SCOTUS ( strictly construing it by ignoring the first third of it ) miraculously discovered that the Second Amendment created an individual right to bear arms. Although even Scalia did not believe that everyone should be allowed to have every kind of firearm, the NRA took the ball and ran the table in state legislatures. Now other-wise rational Congressman think that there is a RIGHT to buy battlefield-grade guns and ammo that should not be inconvenienced by virtue of being on a terrorist watch list. (Of course, the right to bear arms no more guarantees that you can buy an AR15 than the right to travel guarantees that you can fly in a plane. Or drive an 18 wheeler without license and insurance. DUH!)

So, now we have cops -- not unreasonably scared senseless by the sadly rational fear than anyone they stopped could shoot them with their God & NRA protected gun -- who approach guys with broken taillights with guns drawn -- and panic. And a man who served his country in Afghanistan goes crazy and murders five decent guys -- "good guys with guns" -- with the weapon of war that Wayne LaPierre put in his hands.

Of course, blame the gun and not the black shooter who can't act civilized in a civil world.

Same ole speech from Sly James.. suck my titties Sly!

Bob said...

3:38 - "That means that a busted tail light stop ... can legally be justified to search drivers and passengers and vehicle." If you're referring to the decision in Utah v. Streiff, you got it wrong. Reread the opinion. It does not legitimate an otherwise wrongful search.

You'll have to show me where in the constitution or its amendments there is a right to travel, by air or otherwise, and where the Constitution addresses driving anything. But there is a clause, identified in the document as a right, that addresses ownership of firearms in defense of self, family and home. If you want to help, draft legislation that would allow the government to involuntarily detain and medicate crazies, and deny arms (only) to potential terrorists.

That kind of stain never fades.

But I guess it's only free speech when it suits you.

As we've proven repeatedly.

Thanks for your patronage. If you don't like TKC, don't read it. Frankly, WE don't care if you don't come back.

And you spelled butt wrong good sir. Calm down and breath. If you don't like the blog, don't come back all day.

Just like how Tony should move if he doesn't like Kansas City.

Sly, Cleaver and Kay Barnes have done more for Kansas City than most of the other mayors in history. Deal with it.

IF by more for this city, you mean put it in unsustainable debt, then you are correct. If you mean doing what is best for all the areas of town, you are sadly mistaken.

Just more of the same empty rhetoric from two who are masters of the art.
Fortunately no one pays the slightest attention to either of them.
One is a Congressional back-bencher who has never introduced any serious legislation or provided any leadership on much of anything in his decades of rooting at the public trough.
The other is the business-owned mayor of a small mid-western town that's desperately trying to overcome its inferiority complex and make believe it can play in the big leagues.
Right up there with Gary Lezak's dogs.

Cleaver and James had a unifying message. They let it be known that they were disgusted by the gun violence on all sides.
