TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! JACKSON COUNTY COMBAT TAX VOTE RIGGED!!! ANTI-CRIME LEVY DOESN'T RUN OUT FOR ABOUT TWO YEARS, LEGISLATURE CAN PUT IT BACK ON BALLOT IF DEFEATED!!!



Let's take a quick break from e-mails destroying the Hillary Clinton candidacy with a glimpse at crime and punishment closer to home.

To wit . . .

COURTHOUSE INSIDERS REVEAL THAT THE JACKSON COUNTY COMBAT TAX VOTE HAS BEEN RIGGED FROM THE START!!!

Here's insight into the scheme from AWESOME COURTHOUSE INSIDERS . . .

"TKC, what you don't know and most of your readers are clueless about is that the COMBAT TAX election is a complete farce. They timed this thing perfectly and even if voters miraculously said NO to the tax. The expiration date on this one is so far in the future that there are nearly a half dozen more opportunities to put it on the ballot AGAIN. There is simply no way to lose for this tax. You were talking about corruption and the fight against crime. There is no greater example of this than the COMBAT TAX which, you correctly assert, is mostly aimed at funding politically motivated groups under the guise of crime fighting. And that might help explain why our crime numbers are so high . . . "

And so . . .

The local illusion of Democracy deserves to be scrutinized just a bit more closely as local politicos push forward tax votes that simply cannot be defeated despite the fact that there is no organized opposition against this wasteful effort that hasn't yielded many beneficial results or helped to reduce Kansas City crime.

OF COURSE it's rigged.

That's the way just about every levy is done in KCMO.

Really surprised they included any kind of deadline at all. 12th and Oak love to have the kind of revenue they can count on in perpetuity and that's par to the reason this tax is up for renewal right now.

As for what you said about the lack of opposition. Not so sure about that. Jackson County has been taxed to death and there are a lot of people who point out that this election is now part of that problem.

^^^^^^^ Nice diatribe.

But there's no way that people will vote against this. Too many people on the payroll.

4:27am hits the nail on the head.
Just look at the photo that desperately tries to connect stopping violence in the community with the COMBAT tax.
$20 million year after year and the murders in KCMO alone this year are already over 100.
COMBAT is just another great big slush fund for insiders, family, friends, and political supporters.
And they'll all enthusiastically be voting to keep the trough full.
Imagine what could be done with $20 million/year to actually address the violence and murders if there was any serious oversight or accountability for spending the money.
Tax, tax. Spend, spend. Elect, elect.
It never changes.

I worked against the COMBAT tax many years ago. For our efforts we were vilified in the press and the civic community. The tax costs me less than $100 per year so it is not cost effective to fight it. Of course if you are making thousands per year off of the tax you can afford to spend time supporting it. Simple economics and the grifters know it.

Combat has been a complete waste of money. But it will go on and on and on and on. There are too many grifters and friends getting free money for programs like "cooking for convicts", "hug a thug", etc.

COMBAT Funds Diverted to Sanders' Supporters said...

There is an active law enforcement investigation looking into how Skippy Sanders redirected COMBAT funds to two political supporters. First, Sanders used COMBAT funds to rehab the county courthouse in Independence, which inflated the property values of Ken McClain's property. Skippy now "works" for McClain, or at least receives a half million dollars a year from his law firm. Second, Sanders used COMBAT funds to enrich the Black Minister named "Modest" Miles' real estate developments. Law enforcement investigators have been making the rounds of the union locals and other Democrat funding sources who knew about Sanders' dirty politics.

I can assure 7:34 that most people who work in the locals are sick and tired of answering questions about Mike Sanders. We would love to turn him in and send him away.

If this tax program could STOP THE VIOLENCE, why hasn't it done so yet? It is not a new program.

This tax, is the Progressive Agenda writ small. The same shit happens 24/7 in Washington where the pigs feed at the public trough that is full of our tax money, taken by the takers from the makers.

It's disgusting.

I have noticed that Frank White has kept his distance from the renewal campaign. Caleb Clifford is a very smart man for keeping his boss clear of the kind of shit that Comment 7:34 AM describes.

Democrats are in free fall now. So, the desperation is palpable.

@ 8:40: Clinton is still taking the white house. The democrats are probably taking the senate. At least 1 supreme court justice is being installed by Clinton (more than likely there will be 2 justices). Kansas City is still a democratic haven. How in the world are the democrats in a free fall? I'm no Clinton fan but it's insane to think that this latest email scandal has any real chance of stopping the democrats from at least four years of pushing their agenda in Washington.

Look at these holier than thou fuck ups, that run our lives. I hope 8:57 is wrong. Jesus, the oligarchy is already worse than the Sun King and his whole contemptible court.

Gawd I hate, hate these fucking Progressive cunts.

Only losers whine about the vote being "rigged" and now you've done it twice in twelve hours.

Frank is next in line for a series of FBI "inquiries." Several little birdies have told me that "awkward" questions are being asked about his sons new 6 figure no-show "job" at the KCATA (of which Frank appoints board members), as well as a series of questionable "no-bid" "consulting" contracts issued by Frank/Caleb, are now officially on their radar screen. Look for things to really heat up after this January. Caleb has been a "source" for them, but Caleb needs to read the story about the scorpion and the frog.

Just get off your ass and vote NO. Damn! Focus people.

Mark my words: Frank will go down as the worst county executive in history, and Caleb will be the main reason for it.

John Miles is on 107.3 asking black democrats to vote for Roy Blunt. Yet, another reason to vote for Jason Kander. We can't afford John Miles to be a politician. If he wants to run for sometging, fine. It's got to stop.

Anonymous said...

I see Caleb/Frank are busy trying to blame anyone and everyone for the turds they leave. Good luck boys. And Frank, know that Caleb is only loyal to himself and will throw you under the bus as soon as he sees it benefits him.

Looking at that campaign sign photo, I'm struck by the Orwellian Big Brother Newspeak use of language.

"Stop The Violence! Renew Combat"

Newspeak is the fictional language in the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, written by George Orwell. It is a controlled language created by the totalitarian state Oceania as a tool to limit freedom of thought, and concepts that pose a threat to the regime such as freedom, self-expression, individuality, and peace. Any form of thought alternative to the party’s construct is classified as "thoughtcrime".


What's next?

"Be Fiscally Responsible! Extend the ToyTrain"

"Citizens Love KCI! Tear It Down"

"Jackson County Needs Professional Management! Elect Frank White"

"City Manager Leads By Example! Schulte Delinquent On Taxes"

"Hillary Fights For Environment! Campaign Bus Dumps Toilet In Street"

"KCMO Mayor Promotes Fitness! Sly James Obese, Sedentary, In Poor Health"

"Protect National Security! Put Hillary, Huma, Podesta In White House"

How about the "renew on 2" signs. Its not a tax renewal, its a new tax. Read the sign carefully and it says "renew hope".

Just like the streetcar, you have to vote over and over until you get it right. Democracy at its worse!

Anonymous said...

What a sign. LOL!
Stop the Violence renew COMBAT.
When did COMBAT ever stop the violence... EVER????

What a joke!

A better sign would have been "Give us Free Money for Nothing".
