Kansas City Weekly Power Rankings: Mayor Sly's Comeback Amid COVID Crackdown



In much the same way that Brit hotties rule our heart, local pandemic restrictions still dominate the metro.

Nevertheless, we share a peek at power players who dominated the discourse this week.

Take a peek:

Mayor Sly Reprise


The former Kansas City politico dominated national news chat shows this week and seems to be positioning himself for a Beltway appointment should team Biden reclaim the White House for the Democratic Party.


Docs Warn Of COVID Death


Kansas City docs put Kansas City on notice once again . . . We're all gonna die without masking up, following social distancing rules and avoiding any questions of unelected officials. To be fair, the data proves docs right as the pandemic numbers grow worse and more sick people occupy local hospitals. Nevertheless, doctors orders are habitually resisted and this time around the campaign season offers justification for risky behavior.


Petitioners Against Mayor Q Go Full MAGA


There is no denying the momentum of this group. They're quickly accomplishing their goal of putting a recall effort against Mayor Quinton Lucas on the ballot. However, election history has shown us that a Republican renaissance in Kansas City proper is unlikely. Moreover, convincing the 3rd, 4th, 5th & 6th Districts to vote the mayor out of office will be a long shot. Either way it's a fun slap fight that has provided a bit of entertainment as we witness a new generation disillusioned by the reality of KCMO politics.

And so . . .


This list has been compiled according to scientific TKC polling and market research data and it's a weekly comprehensive guide to local powerful people, trends and our times.

If Quinton loses and sly replaces him. There will be a lot of people who will take issue with the chaos the petitioners created.

That would be funny.

But I've always suspected it was a false flag. They're giving Quinton the biggest victory of his political career, a midterm endorsement from voters. It has already backfired if they were actually serious. Seems like they know what they're doing. The Trumpkins will be none the wiser.

And yet Lucas could just as easy be removed from office. A lot of you on here said Trump would never win and oops, look he did. As you have noticed Lucas has more or less gone on total mouth shut down mode. Why, I'm sure he is being advised to keep a low profile right now because those in the know understand how serious this recall is and the momentum it's getting. And no Sly won't be coming back. Stand by, the recall group has a person in the wings but for now it's one step at a time. Have to get Lucas out first.

When the contest for serious competent leadership in KCMO ends up being between James and Lucas, it's a sure sign of how pathetic local government has become and very clearly answers why KCMO is heading down the toilet.
James was a disaster for KCMO and the bills will be coming due for decades.
Lucas is an empty suit who endlessly panders to whatever group is in front of him. spins wildly like a weather vane in a hurricane, is far more interested in his own perceived self-importance, making grandiose statements, and TV appearances than in accomplishing anything, and has already demonstrated his lack of interest in the basic services that residents depend on.
Another four years of empty showboating and selfish career advancement.
Dig deep, KCMO taxpayers!

If we are all going to die if we don't mask up then we are all going to die if we do mask up because masking simply does not make much difference. Or maybe this is all just scary talk in an attempt to hurt Trump's reelection chances.

But where are the clowns?
There ought to be clowns.
Don't bother, they're here!
And how can so many of them fight into one little KCMO car?

PS when your only "accomplishments" are a boondoggle toy train, a bottomless money pit of an uneeded airport, and record crime as mayor...the only thing you have left to do is screech about how some White ppl who gave you a free ride through college and law school and elected you mayor twice are racists and treated you horribly.

There's plenty of qualified black Dems. I don't see that Sly has anything to bring to the table expect some developers wanting to ride his coattails. He is generally distrusted. I think there's better qualified out there. Bowtie talking head...ok, but that's about all he has to show.

And he married white women and he was constantly going to a mostly elite white girl prep school to check out the white girls, I mean make all those important speeches.....

So... 8:45: I can hear the music of “Call in the Clowns” softly playing in the background.

I can see Pelosi along with Adam “drama queen” Schiff... walking abreast with Mayor 10-10–10 and even Mayor 10-10-10 “health misadvisor” Rex Archer... telling everyone to mask up and you will die if you don’t... until after The Election. Unless of course... or rather until Trump is overwhelming re-elected... in which case we will all die again if we don’t mask up.

The exceptions... notable as such- is we don’t have to mask up if we are being set up during a hair appointment in Nancy’s neighborhoods OR having pics taken of us with Mayor 10-10-10. Archer’s words alone will continue to scare us as we enter any restaurant with our masks... but perfectly okay to take off immediately as we sit and drink or eat.

Ladies and Gentlemen- these are your elected officials and current class clowns in need of nothing but dunce caps. See the hypocrisy for what it is. It’s always survival of the fittest and anyone caught cowering today destroys the immunity of tomorrow’s influx.

Liberalism has failed miserably and the Pelosi and Mayor 10-10-10’s of the world want to keep poor and blacks out of work and depending on gov’t forever!

Read and follow Candace Owens... a brilliant black female... for more.

I am Joe Biden and I forgot this message.

DOWN AND OUT IN KANSAS CITY

Sylvester "Bow-tie Clown" James thinks he has a shot at landing in D.C. post-election? Only problem? Dementia patient "Hiding Biden" is NOT going to become President.

Jason Pander, a Jew from Kansas who pretended to have deep roots in Missouri (the Jessica Krug of local politics) was exposed as mentally unfit for office. Since then, he periodically sends out narcissistic gym photos of himself preparing for his homosexual "coming out" announcement.

Quinton "Schizo" Lucas (a fellow student of Jessica Krug) continues bumbling his way through the Mayor's office, pissing off both sides of every issue, flip-flopping more than a fish out of water, and digging KCMO into a deeper financial hole from which there's no recovery.

DUMB, DUMBER, AND DUMBEST
