KANSAS CITY STAR PROF KRASKE DOUBLES DOWN ON FAKE NEWS PROMOTING JOLIE JUSTUS FOR MAYOR!!!



The latest propaganda from Kansas City's fading daily newspaper doubles down on a sketchy premise that has already been disproven.

At the outset of the election, columnist and jr. UMKC professor Steve Kraske claimed that Jolie Justus had the mayoral election locked up. AND THEN she quickly dropped out when Jason Kander stepped in for a hot second. Sadly, Kander stepped right out after a few weeks because of medical and personal issues.

Now, Kraske comes to a familiar conclusion in his latest work:

Kansas City Star: The KC Mayoral Power Rankings 3.0: As the campaign shifts into gear, who’s leading the pack?

(Brief aside, notice the headline touts "power rankings" which is a hallmark of our TKC blog community and a sign that this penny stock corporation is running scared from our loose collection of cantankerous local miscreants that now has just as much influence over the 12th & Oak conversation as the handful of pundits pushing dead trees on the voting public.)

More importantly . . . Over the course of the election we've shared a peek at polling data, endorsement switcheroos and insider arguments. Sadly, Kraske's work is mostly based on his often incorrect assumptions and talking points from team Jolie.

And so, yet again Kraske sides with Council Lady Jolie Justus despite the fact that her campaign is faltering, she's barely 3rd in fundraising overall and very few people outside of midtown or progressive cliques know anything about her. The hack screed isn't even opinion journalism, it's promotion and hype.  

But again, the tragic part of this is that voters and political denizens aren't allowed their say on the topic or an alternative perspective . . .

And so we put it to you d-bags . . .

IS JOLIE JUSTUS REALLY THE FRONT RUNNER FOR KANSAS CITY MAYOR?!?!

You decide . . .

The star wants to play king maker. I don't blame them but picking Jolie Justus might have jumped the gun. At least three other candidates re running stronger races. Steve Miller, not the guitar player, is admittedly doing better and most of that has to do with blog and not anything "reported" in the newspaper.

Wow, your opinion is pretty biased here too TKC. We all have opinions just like well all have, well you know.

I'll share some news with you. Jolie Justus has a secret weapon. She's going to appear on the Rachel Maddow show soon and once that guy gets going promoting her. The whole election is in the bag!

Think about it.

Ah yes, the loyal Kraske, that bane of Confederate statues, that dutiful servant of the local corrupt clown show, here once again to point the way.

Vegas favors Quinton motherfucking Lucas, bitches.

Ms. Jolie is supposed to represent part of the Northland that was hacked off and included with the neighborhoods south of the river. I'll bet she doesn't even know that. We've never seen her smiling face up here. Hey, come up and see the DIVERSE section of the Fourth District that's under your protection.
Oh, and by the way....she ain't getting my vote.

Lesbians are mentally ill. Just like the post on here that want a women and a lesbian. That is how ignorant our country has become. Doesn't matter what they stand for or what they have done to warrant that position.

Two women "trying" to have sex together is not normal, and the sad thing about it is, they know it, but are just really messed up people.

Jolie eats a lot of pussy

Whoever you are that keeps posting about Vegas favoring Lucas, we all know that Las Vegas couldn't give a shit about a Mayoral Race in a mid-sized burg in flyover country, so find a more credible line to cut and paste every day.

Maybe you can borrow something from the clown who posts that Jolie Justus loves Vietnamese food and that Vietnamese food contains cat meat.

Best candidate on Council would be Heather Hall.

9:47 the pussy cat food thing is funny as hell!

And it’s true too! Hahahahaha!

Krapske has always had a face for radio and looking at that split shot of him and Jolie makes me think ET may have been their lovechild.

Is Jolie really a lesbian?

The Truth And Nothing But The Truth So Help Me God said...

The Liberals pushed for women to get rid of their men with the feminist movement. "You don't need a man", says the liberal movement. Why do liberals want women not to have a man, because a single woman is much more likely to vote for the Democrat Party? Even better, a single woman with kids in a broken home will most likely produce future democrats. Broken homes benefit the Democrat Party. Don't think the Democrats don't know this. Democrats encourage promiscuous and homosexual sex. The more screwed up a person's sexual orientation is the more the democrats love them. Yes, there is one common denominator in the decline of our cities ... liberal Democrats. A vote for Jolie will continue that decline.

@947 I agree!!

This entire post by TKC this evening was in response to the post from this morning that detailed the current mess falls at Jolie’s feet. Read it; makes total sense. From earlier today: KANSAS CITY STALLED NEW KCI AIRPORT POINTS OF CONTENTION EXPLAINED!!!

KRASKE ON-THE-TAKE?

Hey, I know the fake news business is a mighty tough gig anymore, but I've got to wonder if Liberal propagandist Kraske is accepting payment/favors for positive PR.

I mean, come on, I'm still a young adult and I distinctly remember Kraske assuring readers that Quinton Lucas was the future Mayor of KC before he even got elected to the Council...then he was telling everyone that Justus had the Mayor's spot clinched...then he was actually telling KCUR listeners that Pander was JFK 2.0...but then Pander admitted he wanted to kill himself, so it was back to Justus again!

Kraske flips more than a school superintendent's middle finger after drinking shots of booze.

I guess the guy's trying to supplement his income from The Star, KCUR, and UMKC. Maybe he knows The Star is going to screw employees on their pensions when they go bankrupt?

Exactly! And if you do not buy into the identity politics bs you are a mysgist homophobe nazi.
Fuck the left and this from a former progressive who has had enough of the real fake newz.

That's the way it works.

Kraske looks exactly like Beaker from the Muppet Show.

8:43: Jolie's sexual preference is irrelevant. No one should vote for or against her because she is allegedly gay.

Just take a look at where we are today. Failing infrastructure while tax dollars subsidize yesterday's fixed rail transit, housing for the wealthy, new hotels, etc. If that's what you favor, Jolie's your candidate. If not, look elsewhere.

Which mayoral candidate will insist on a new city manager? That's the office we sgould be concerned with

Anonymous said...

First of all, Kraske lives in Kansas, so whoever is elected KCMO mayor doesn't affect him one bit.
Then we have two commentators supporting Justus either because she's a member of the LGBT community or due to the fact that she's about to appear on the Rachel Maddow Show.
Really?
Those are reasons to vote for someone for mayor?
Especially after the utterly failed Justus "anti-crime" Commission, which wasted an entire year of the participants' time and resulted in NOTHING.
And the airport fiasco alone should be more than enough to disqualify Justus for consideration of anything.
How about a competent person who has some interest in actual municipal services for residents?
Go down the candidate list.
The cupboard is bare.

Jolie miserably failed with the airport fiasco and she will drastically fail as mayor. All the way with Clay.

All the way to your 6% of the vote.

ALLEGEDLY? REALLY?

Jolie Justus is currently married to a woman.

Are you suggesting that is a ruse?

Your non-discrimination point is taken, but don't mix in silly lies.
