Kansas City New Airport Deception Explained

At least one part of it . . . There's so much to unpack but this quick snippet does a great job of calling into question some of the money that Edgemoor wants KCMO to front. Checkit:

Lies, Damn Lies, and Airport Politics

In November 2017, Kansas City voters overwhelmingly supported building a new single terminal at the airport. Voters were told, time and again, that the airlines would pay for it-that no taxpayer funds would be used.

Check out this bullshit

Jolie Justus: Large, complex projects deserve our concern, but concern should not shake our confidence. The voters supported this project by an overwhelming margin. We will get the work done, but that means getting the work done right. We should not be surprised that when the detailed technical planning began, some assumptions changed – but the plan voters adopted protects taxpayers. The airlines and the developer are taking 100% of the risk on this project and we will have project that will make our city proud.

Jolie Justus either doesn't know what the hell she is talking about and living in a dream world of her own making. Or both.

Did anyone do a public records request for the dinner and drinks receipt from the private “members only” River Club where this plan was hatched? Did Jolie, Sly or Ttoy submit one for reimbursement? Because that would further prove their secret off calendar meeting with Burn & Mac. And further under score how crazy this whole “deal” really is.

It would take some really intense research to identify a project or expenditure of any consequence that WASN'T based on spin or an outright lie.
A combination of incompetence, arrogance, and prevarication.
What could possibly go wrong?

To Kansas City administration, we citizens are just a big ATM. But instead of a PIN, they put in blatant lies, and the cash comes rolling out. Over and over.

This airport deal is a hoax. Just like the attack on Jussie Smollett is a complete hoax.



Jolie and Jussie are one in the same.

Remodel the airport. Forget about a new single terminal, it's unworkable. End of discussion.

@6:57, having a taste for Cat Meat is hardly a qualification for Mayor!

Read the official ballot language. We did not vote for a "single terminal". We simply voted to tear down (which could include a remodel) the existing facility.
Over 80% of the registered voters did not support this idea. They either voted NO or showed their lack of interest because there was no firm plan by not voting...
