TKC READER EXCLUSIVE FACT CHECK!!! COUNCIL LADY JOLIE JUSTUS JUSTIFIES NEW KANSAS CITY AIRPORT BAD DEAL!!!



Link to an important talk today and push back that no other news outlet is willing to provide courtesy of KICK-ASS INSIDERS who have looked over the fine print and share the deets with us right now . . .

The Sound of Getting Hosed at KCI

Jolie Justus, Councilwoman, mayoral candidate and chair of the city’s Aviation Committee, went on local radio today to backstop perhaps the greatest deceit behind the airport deal sold to voters. You can hear the interview on KCMO.

Listen to the audio track of the interview between minutes 2:25 and 2:54. She reports, correctly, that the airlines have agreed to a nine-year deal to pick up new airport cost. While Justus pitches this as a happy development, it exposes the falsehood that airlines will pay for the new airport. Pay for how long? What she’s saying is that an undetermined number of airlines are promising to cover costs for only nine years.

This is not a minor detail. It’s a major red flag. Why? The city is asking airlines to pay for airport construction bonds with a total cost of about four billion dollars over 35 years. Payment on these bonds will be somewhere between 115 and 120 million dollars per year. Will airlines pull out of this deal after nine years, leaving the airport (taxpayers) on the hook for another couple of decades? 

Airlines may claim they won’t.  Unlike a paternity suit, this deal is not enforceable unless it’s written to cover the whole 35 years.

Remember, airlines signing the nine-year deal will be collectively responsible for the bond debt. Any airline that bolts the collective after nine years cuts its costs, forcing competitors remaining in the deal to pay more. If airlines have already gotten a shiny new airport and the ability to stop paying after nine years, would you bet that taxpayers won’t end up with the financial version of the pee-on-thingy surprise? Evidently, Councilwoman Justus is willing to gamble taxpayers won’t get hosed at KCI.

It's not a bad deal, it's NO DEAL. More like KC getting a whole lot of nothing in exchange for millions.

Aren't you glad the idiots at city hall are not in charge of running your personal investment portfolio for you?

Any intelligent person with a solid basic education can see where KCMO is heading.

And it ain't pretty.

I'm an idiot with money and I wouldn't make this deal.

This is actually worse than many people thought. Very evident the taxpayers are getting hosed by the city minions. Slowly a few of the details are leaking out and the airport deal looks worse by the minute. This is what happens when people vote and nothing has been communicated to the taxpayers before they vote.
Past time for the airlines to back out and remodel existing airport. Time for the city council to reject all of this mess.

Jolie is taking after her mentor Sly James. Her lies are getter worse and she is getting to be morbidly obese like Sly. God damn that woman is fat! She has more fat hanging off her than a hog. In advance, shut up, Angela.

I get the feeling the airlines may now wish they had never gotten dragged into this pathetic mess.

Question: Wouldn't an ethical candidate for KCMO Mayor refuse campaign contributions from any company/individual affiliated with airport terminal bidding, especially since she served as Airport Committee Chair?

Jolie Justus certainly has not.

Conclusion: Justus is unethical; but then you already knew that if you've been paying attention.

Airlines weren't dragged into this. They got into it for same reason con men go after idiots with money.

At least Jolie is doing SOMETHING about getting a new airport, most people are just criticizing with no solutions. Jolie is the only one I see working.

The new motto for KCMO city hall and its pathetic inhabitants:
When you're in a hole, stop digging".
Justus, Sly, and the gang are so deep into this fantasy that even they have lost track of the facts, much less the truth.
First as comedy...
Now as farce.
What goes on regularly behind the curtain now for all to see.
Really sad.

Wow another "insider" who, yet again, misinterprets something and fails to understand the process.

I’ve talked with experts secretly from Braniff and TWA.
Consensus Top Observations:

1. When they meet with city officials- they actually see clowns.
2. They have a nickname for Sky and Jolie- The Dumbonic Duo
3. Airlines stop paying in year 10. Good ol’ kc taxpayers will happily pay
4. Urged Sky to scrap the street car and use salvage money to pay after year 9
5. Use Carwash Cleaver/Frank White School of finance model when payments stop.
6. None of this matters. AOC will have planes outlawed by 2025.
7. Use AOC SCHOOL of finance to pay for this and since it’s rich peoples money- gold plate the bathrooms
8. Use AOC methods for employment. Pay people to not do anything. Sort of what kc does for sly
9. Hire KC Star editorial board to clean bathroom. They can clean up what their opinion is worth
10. There is no 10. It’s only 9- just like the payments- 9 years.

THE ABOVE QUOTE IS INCORRECT. TAXPAYERS FUCK THEMSELVES BECAUSE THEY DON'T TRY TO MAKE INFORMED DECISIONS. THERE'S ALWAYS SOMEONE READY TO SCREW YOU IF YOU ARE TO LAZY TO EXERT DUE DILIGENCE.

So- new paint on new walls.
Longer lines and longer walk ways to airplanes and cars.
High prices for junk food and food food food for fat overweight travelers. Most fit people skip airport food.
So what does KC gain?
Debt debt debt.
Which is the motto for the Carwash Cleaver Frank White School of Finance.
All supported by the editorial board’s sterling recommendation! Folks we can trust.

6:30 you are part of the problem.
JJ is insane.
The most disgusting thing about this is all the folks who voted for this. Ripping down the current airport to make a single terminal airport based on jingles like 'smaller & nicer" "make airports great again' was unbelievable and the whole concept an irresponsible, bad idea. Then they assumed the aviation committee would do a great job while they pay no attention and were led by the nose. And they continue be cheer leaders of nonsense. That's you 6:30. The best you can do is jump on TKC ONE morning and share how oblivious you are. Catch up or STFU.

The second most disgusting thing about this all, are all the people who are just going to work and trying to feed their families, posting baby photos & selfies on facebook.

At this point, contacting your "council member" to express your concerns about this is a bit like mentioning to the captain of the Titantic that there's a report of icebergs ahead when the ship is already at a 45 degree angle.
Millions of tax dollars have already been spent or committed.
And the "project" has continued to "move forward" based on little more than assertions, hopes, and outright lies.
So just sit back and watch you KCMO elected officials at work.
Keep in mind that a good number of the very same people who have brought us to this point are now asking for your vote to become mayor.
And for the 85% of metro residents who don't live in KCMO, continue to count your good fortune.

Where are the candidates for Mayor who are opposed to the KCI corrupt deal??? Where are you?

There are at least two mayoral candidates questioning the airport deal. Chastain has expressed a willingness to throw out the existing deal but is short on details. Scott Wagner has shown by far the most detailed, intelligent and persistent skepticism about the current airport deal. Justus is a candidate and clearly all-in for this train wreck. Quinton Lucas, as usual, tries to sound measured and sophisticated, without actually committing to anything. The others? Probably waiting to see if the airport deal bursts into flames before taking a stand on anything.

My greatest fear is that Jolie will become a plus-size bikini model which means we would see her even more of her on TKC than we do now. Given the choice, I'd rather see her win the mayoral election.
