Update on Clay Chastain's legal battle with a far leftist government that embodies America's on-going discord.
Despite its flaws, Abraham Lincoln loved America and used the force of his personality to improve America and hold it together. Today's radical left despise America, want to control it and seek to reconceive it in their own misbegotten image.
KC's far left government has its own dark history of trying to control the people by controling their petitions. In its latest dark act, Mayor Lucas and the City Council (abetted by Senior City Attorney Galen Beaufort and the legal deprtment), have refused to place on the ballot (for 734 days!!!) a legitimate transit-improving petition from the people. City Hall has offered no justification whatsoever (to the petitioners or the court) for denying the people's their right to vote on this petition vision. Just use the legal department to stonewall, control and intimidate because they can.
Petitioners have asked Honrable US District Judge Roseann E. Ketchmark for oral arguments so the petitioners can face those who seek to undermine an ideal Kansas City voters long ago enacted for themselves...the right to petition.
People should watch the outcome of this landmark case (No. 4:20-cv-694 RK) and up coming oral arguments. If Chastain wins, it will not only change the course of our City, it will also spell the political end of Mayor Lucas, City Council members and the far left doctrine they are forcing on the citizens of Kansas City.
Conservative activist, Clay Chastain.
