The Feds are stepping into the fray of a longstanding Kansas City racially charged debate and so far the local media are keeping quiet. 

To wit . . .


It's commonly referred to as MBE/WBE but locals have long called it unfair. 

The back story on this investigation comes after a bitter feud over an 80-million contract wherein social justice advocates pressured Mayor & Council to subvert a bid from a Northland company in favor of a union company that held stronger ties to the local African-American community.

TKC broke that story and followed all of the drama whilst attempting to separate the news from the hype.

Until now, the punchline for the civic slap fight was a Northland Council lady temporarily losing her "Aviation Chair" spot and having to endure "implicit bias training."

However . . .


At the very least, this news has insiders hoping that a new Biden administration will bail them out before federal inquiry gets serious and starts costing insiders money. 

And, so, TKC is FIRST to share word of a federal case that is being politely ignored by Kansas City mainstream media and the mayor's office as power players hope to to distract the public from a serious legal examination now underway.

Here's the word .  . .

Civil Rights Division Opens Investigation into Potential Discrimination in Public Contracting

The Department of Justice Civil Rights Division has opened an investigation into whether the public contracting and procurement practices of Kansas City, Missouri, comply with the U.S. Constitution and the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

“No person anywhere in the United States should be subjected to unlawful discrimination on the ground of race, color or national origin, and the Civil Rights Act makes Kansas City, Missouri’s receipt of federal funding contingent on keeping that commitment,” said Eric Dreiband, Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights. “All government in this free country must treat all persons with equal dignity and respect and without dividing people into racial and ethnic blocs for the purpose of labelling certain people winners and others losers because of their race. The Department of Justice today opened an investigation to determine whether Kansas City, Missouri’s contracting program complies with the United States Constitution and the Civil Rights Act.”

According to publicly available information, for at least 24 years, Kansas City has used quota-based “set asides” in nearly 30 percent of all public contract dollars to favor certain people because of their race and sex and disfavor others. 

The department is opening an investigation into Kansas City’s public contracting and procurement programs to determine whether those programs violate Title VI, which prohibits race discrimination by entities receiving federal funds

Title VI incorporates the anti-discrimination protections of the Equal Protection Clause of the U.S. Constitution’s Fourteenth Amendment. Discrimination on the ground of race in public contracting in the form of quota-based set asides may violate the Equal Protection Clause, which provides that “[n]o state shall . . . deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” 

“Classifications based on race carry a danger of stigmatic harm. Unless they are strictly reserved for remedial settings, they may in fact promote notions of racial inferiority and lead to a politics of racial hostility.”  See City of Richmond v. J.A. Croson Co., 488 U.S. 469, 493 (1989) (plurality opinion). Quota-based set asides may violate both the Equal Protection Clause and Title VI. In City of Richmond, the Supreme Court determined that a 30 percent minority set-aside by the City of Richmond, Virginia violated the Constitution.

The notice of investigation is not a finding of fault or wrongdoing by the city or any other individual or entity, and the department has not reached any conclusions about these matters.

Star would just spin it and blame it on Trump. Sad.

Well, they've got until January 20th to make something happen. That's more than enough time to show how horrible corrupt Kansas City is and how all of the bids are rigged in one way or another.

Corruption in KCMO? Who would have guessed...

Anonymous said...

Just as long as the investigation doesn't emphasize the content of character and focuses instead on the color of skin, KCMO should come out OK.
Looks like another "good" reason to march around and make demands.
What ever happened to all those "news-makers" anyway?

Yikes! Does the city have any money to fight this or will they have to furlough more white people?

The only people who label and divide are the black people. Sorry but I'm going to do the opposite of what BLM said to do when they said hire more blacks regardless of qualification and to buy from black stores and on and on and on and on and on and on. From now on I do judge by race and I also judge by political party. No democrats are welcome in my business and I won't rent to them. I have that right BLM made that right for me.

Just the loser Trump justice department going through the motions. Soon as the Biden team comes in, they will flush out the remaining Trump trash in all of the agencies. They also opened an investigation into Hunter Biden's taxes, that's going away soon too.

Fast-forward to the 38:15 mark, and listen to Quinton explain how he could escape a federal indictment.

Why would a Mayor who's followed the law be speculating on having to face a federal indictment? It's called a guilty conscience!!!

Looks like CORRUPT CHINA JOE BIDEN and his meth head son, Cunter, are now being investigated.

Even the mainstream media is finally talking about Biden's corrupt dealings with China by selling his influence as VP of the United States which is foreign corruption.

Unfortunately; the corporate media did not report this information until AFTER the election because corporate media hates Trump.

Facebook and Twitter censored any negative Biden news stories until after the election as well.

The long-term Marxist Democrat Party game plan is to replace Biden with Harris either due to health reasons or this NOW foreign corruption dealings.

The Democrat Party will discard Joe Biden like a used rubber just like Mayor Willie Brown used Kamala Harris back when she launched her political career by giving blow jobs to a married man 40 years her senior.

Have always predicted Texas will be the first state to declare independence from Marxist Democrat controlled New York and California who dictate their failed Marxist policies on the rest of the country.

Now Texas is suing Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan and Georgia for the corrupt, rigged national election.

Missouri has joined Texas in this lawsuit.

This is the first shot fired in the breakup of the United States.

States have never sued each other in the past.

Hope the Red States form their own country. Let the liberals in the Red States relocate to New York or California and live in their Communist utopia.

The Red States will still abide by the Constitution, Law and Order, the 2nd Amendment, Honest Elections, Freedom of Religion, Freedom of the Press, Freedom of Assembly and Capitalism.

Currently, we do not have Freedom of the Press as it is censored by the Corporate Media elites with their Marxist propaganda.
Currently we do not have Freedom of Assembly as the Communist Democrat Party flies in their thugs to disrupt and intimidate peaceful rallies.

The Red States will do great economically as they have the oil and gas reserves that the Marxists want to ban. Plus, the Red States have the

The technology companies are fleeing California to Red States to avoid the high taxes and crime.

Yes indeed, this lawsuit by the State of Texas is monumental.

The Democrat Party overplayed its hand rigging the election for a senile, corrupt, life-long politician living in his basement as their presidential candidate.

The whining white men are playing the race card, again.

Poor little white men; everybody's always picking on them.

This, like the Hunter Biden investigation, has nothing to do with reality. It's just Trump & the racists slinging a final few arrows in defiance.

Since we've become a Banana Republic, using the government to attack political opponents, is the new norm.

Don't worry, none of this nonsense will stand.

These racist and discriminatory practices of KCMO are clearly a violation of the Equal Protection clause of the 14th Amendment and should be struck down and the city forced to pay damages to those they harmed with their racist policies.

It's just like 12:23 said, "Thins is hate happens you you push people to far." Who could possibly argue with that?

Not one thing will happen. The DOJ is filled to the brim with activist Progressive Lawyers and is just as corrupt as the FBI.

These set asides are at the heart of why KCMO has infrastructure issues. The idea of a bid being selected based upon price/performance is out the window in KC.

Watch that video - Pelosi is Satan's bride -

"I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: As far as I’m concerned, Pelosi should never be let off the hook for what she did. How many Americans lost their jobs and homes because of her deliberate actions? How many starved, gave up hope, committed suicide? These are questions that will never get asked of her by members of our esteemed press because the reasons why they’d be asked would again expose the left’s true motivations for the lockdowns, the stall tactics, all of it right from the start: To defeat Donald Trump no matter how bad it hurt Americans".

All you have for argument is a label, that is in itself a selective, political lie.

Anonymous said...

9:47 p.m. has no supporting argument for CORRUPT CHINA JOE BIDEN.

So he has to go to the Democrat Party trick of last resort and label folks racists.

"Racist" is too flippantly used these days and has no relative meaning.

Using the term racist is when the Democrats are losing a debate and are flailing around or when someone else is successful.

The Democrats have no positive attributes so they have to play the race card continuously to control their voters.

The post @9:16 last night pretty well summed up the far-Right agenda we see playing out today. They find they cannot dominate the United States once they have achieved some measure of control, and therefore hey want to destroy it and completely overthrow the Constitution. We saw their weaknesses on display during the first two years of the Trump Presidency, when they controlled the Executive Branch, both Houses of the Legislative Branch, and had a majority in the Judicial Branch, and still were unable to enact anything of except the traditional "Republican Tax Cut for the Wealthy" with its inevitable ballooning of the National Debt.

And as a major part of their Russian-style "Big Lie" propaganda thy constantly name this spiteful insurrectionist attempt as "Patriotism" and refuse to accept the results of a fair and honest exercise of American Democracy!

This irrational "lawsuit" is nothing but political partisanship, seventeen States are NOT suing the United States, Republican Attorneys General in seventeen States are, and thy are doing it solely in order to curry favor with the extremist wing of the GOP to further their own political ambitions.

This absurdity will go nowhere, Biden will be sworn into Office, Trump will thunder and squall as he sinks into irrelevance, and the influence of the Tea Party's extremism will disappear now that the Koch Money has ceased to fund it.

Moderation, stability and true Patriotism will return to the Republican Party, and they may well be able to nominate an electable Candidate in 2024.

Relax Trumptards, your boy is going to be okay...

Russian state-media outlets are calling on President Donald Trump to seek asylum in Moscow to dodge potential prosecution in the US when he leaves office.

Trump and his businesses are facing multiple investigations by prosecutors in New York and Washington, DC, and he has vocalized his concern at the prospect of being indicted.

Olga Skabeeva, the host on the state-owned Russia 1 network, said on December 3 that asylum could solve Trump's problems.

Igor Korotchenko, a member of the Defense Ministry's public council, added: "But let him not simply arrive to Rostov or elsewhere, but also transfer his capital here and finally build his famous Trump City somewhere in our New Moscow."

Dmitry Kiselyov, one of Russia's most prominent Kremlin-aligned TV hosts, said Sunday that the only way Trump can save himself is with a self-pardon.

Trump is popular in Russia and is often referred to by state media as "our Donald," "Trumpusha," and "Comrade Trump,".

Now YOU, on the other hand...

chuck said...

I swear, it's just so, so sickening. The ENTIRE time, the FBI and the DOJ actually have the laptop which proves there is NO Russian Collusion while they prepare an investigation into Russian Collusion.

THIS is how corrupt the DOJ and FBI really are, Enacting the office of "Special Council", while giving very serious and grave interviews on the importance of finding corruption and foreign interference (While at the same exact time, the Biden Crime family is cashing checks fro red China, Moscow, the Ukraine and literally too many more countries to list here.) in the Trump administration while the very same people, KNOW IT IS A LIE AND HAVE THE PROOF HIDDEN AWAY.

But sure, now that we have the DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE looking into Democrat activities here in KC, we can rest assured that JUSTICE will win out.

Not a fuckin chance.

I love it! Still humping the old Russia hoax.

Anyway, back in the real world, Dem rep Swallwell has been outed as having been compromised by a Chinese spy. His antics in trying to deny this are high comedy.

And poor demented Joe definitely has friends in China. He and his crackhead, child-molesting son were singled out for praise by high officials of the Chinese Communist Party, alluding to special arrangements and relationships. Should the demented old boy actually get inaugurated, the investigation into his horrifying offspring will likely force an early resignation in favor of the Blowjob Queen of San Francisco. :)

Wrong 7:55 a.m. you need to get out of your CNN bubble.

Conservatives and law-abiding citizens hate the Marxist Democrat Party and their brand of Communism.

Allowing thugs to burn and loot our cities to intimidate voters are what Hitler and Stalin would do.

The Attorney Generals of the Red States represent their state's population who want to be as far removed from Democrat policies as possible.

Democrats are like dumped, crazy girlfriends who think we Conservatives should still like them when we simply want to get away from them.

We don't want your transgender, homosexual, high-crime, high-tax lifestyles. Marxist Democrats are disgusting deviants. We working class Conservatives are tired of supporting the welfare Democrats. Sick of it.

8:03 Oh, I believe there will be hundreds of investigations by crooked, corrupt, partisan, Fascist prosecutors(funded by George Soros no doubt) into the Trump family and anyone associated with them.

After all, "Show me the man, I will show you the crime".

You cocksuckers don't actually need an actual crime to ruin someone, wreck their lives, bankrupt them and finally after the unlimited power of the Fascist state and the mewly, lickspittle, liberal media pounds away day after day with lies, false accusations and ex nihilo created crimes, you get a Michael Flynn type Plea deal and proclaim to the world that you have pursued "Justice".

What a fuckin joke.

The Southern District of New York is run by a modern day, Roland Freisler, so, sure, no doubt, prosecutions..., er..., persecutions are coming and coming hard.

You fuckers should be real proud.

The DOJ investigation will be abandoned the afternoon of January 20. But it has merit. Set-asides based on race and sex are very obviously unconstitutional. They also make no sense. Having been in place for decades, surely MBEs and WBEs have finally figured out how to bid on jobs like all other BEs do. If they still can't do it, maybe they should find some other line of work. said...

9:05 The DOJ is NOT investigating. Gimme a break.

97% of all political contributions from the DOJ, go to Democrats.

The Democrats here in KC will be just fine. No doubt, the people sent here from the most corrupt city in the world, Washington DC will break bread with their friends here and have a nice visit, then go back home. said...

The FBI and DOJ's primary duties are to protect Democrats and destroy any opposition to Democrats.

"Newly released FBI documents turned over to former national security adviser Michael Flynn show agents openly questioned if their “goal” was to “get him to lie,” so they could “prosecute him or get him fired,” when questioning him about Russian contacts.

The documents, provided by the Justice Department as part of a re-examination of Flynn’s case, include a single page of handwritten notes.

While the notes are not listed with an author, they are believed to have been written by former FBI counterintelligence director Bill Priestap. The notes were taken in January 2017, following a meeting with former FBI Director James Comey and Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, according to Fox News."

NEVER talk to ANYONE from the DOJ for ANY reason.

Mark One Electric, woman owned, has benefitted with city contracts for years under clever classifications, and when the Pitch pointed out how other qualifying business were excluded, they adjusted. Now they’ve propped up other smaller proxy minority contractors which they control to gain access. Any big city related project, they’re involved. Cerner, Kauffman, stadiums, Bartle Hall, hotels, the bottoms, downtown real estate, the airport which they firmly pursued and now they own the Star’s building.
