A Tiara? Detroit Mayor Continues To Lose Credibility

After Monica Conyers ridiculous attack on council members Jo Ann Watson, Sheila Cockrel and of course, her famous “name calling” to President Ken Cockrel that he was “Shrek”…. today she (again) appears on national news criticizing the other members of city council (again). The City Council opted to obtain Kwame’s new “expense and budget” plan for spending taxpayer funds in writing (VIDEO). Yet Monica Conyers touts to the news that this was a “bad” thing to do. However, analysts say it was in fact the most prudent thing the City Council could do under the circumstances. Perhaps Monica overlooked what the other 80,000 folks witnessed during this government address, which is that Kwame has no credibility in the first place (by his own actions indeed), and in the second place appearing with a supporter (an advocate of Kilpatrick’s who happens to also be on city council currently)—whom was dressed in a princess gown with a TIARA.  Yes, on live broadcast news for the world to witness. Perhaps Monica has also forgotten that she herself was the FIRST ONE demanding the Mayor’s resignations. People are curious as to what caused Monica Conyers’ sudden, dramatic turnaround….  

Tiara?

The City Council simply preferred to see factually, with substantiation on paper, Kilpatrick’s spending plan agenda so as to review it. And frankly, is it appropriate for someone in a professional public role to arrive with a tiara on one’s head? Is city business relegated now to a “costume” party? Let’s be honest, if any regular citizen were to walk into 5th Third Bank vying for a loan to spend the BANKS MONEY, with a tiara on their head, they probably WOULD NOT be taken seriously. Likewise, why should anyone take Kwame or his supporters seriously given the facts and history at hand? Public comment reveals that people feel the council is acting wisely to see things in writing as opposed to just hearing it and assuming it is true. After all, over 40,000 text messages show what was really going on behind the scenes. It is clear nothing can be taken for granted anymore when it comes to the Mayor, not even basic ethics.  

But apparently, the Mayor is still wondering why no one is interested in anything he has to say anymore and more people are calling for his resignation (VIDEO). Hmmm….after 8 felony indictments, millions of losses for the city due to his own PERSONAL spending, nepotistic practices, philandering, and mismanagement, ya think? It is also rather unfair for the Mayor to expect to be treated differently than HE HIMSELF WOULD TREAT someone who behaved as disreputably. More double standard? Everyone has seen first hand how the Mayor has mis-handled his role as a leader and violated public trust on every level.

Time Magazine said 2 years ago Kwame needs to grow up. He is still not listening. Related videos on local news here. What Lou Dobbs has to share also here and via search on CNN page.

TODAY Monica Conyers CAT-FIGHT At Detroit City Council Hearing WITH VIDEO Pls SPEAK OUT

LATEST UPDATE: HERE’s ANOTHER VERSION (search for “scuffle between council and conyers” if they remove it from the home page!)

UPDATED! HERE’S THE VIDEO! Click image link and see also the history below!  

Monica Conyers DISRESPECTS THE ENTIRE CITY COUNCIL

Unbelievable, Monica Conyers CONTINUES her absurdness in full public view as per her typical style. What an embarrassment. Despite outrcries by local attendees at the Detroit City Council hearings today she openly insulted President Kenneth Cockrel and ALL her colleagues of other WOMEN by the way, exclaiming for the world to see:

“You’re not my Daddy. You’re not going to disrespect me. Grow up! Control your house and learn how to treat women.” — Monica Conyers – (Incompetent “Pro-Tem” City Council Detroit – April 11, 2008 — ) See also: Council Hearings Erupt – Detroit News

This behavior, coupled with her PUBLIC ENDORSEMENT of Mayor Kilpatrick’s egregious mismanagement of public money, and her utter lack of ethics is further demonstrated by having her photo plastered on the outrageous Kilpatrick “Justice Defense Fund” which solicits money from the public to defend the Mayor from a very RIGHTEOUS investigation. And this is supposed to be evidence to the people that Monica Conyer’s is capable of UNBIASED SUPPORT for the people of the city???? Obviously NOT.

Monica Conyers LACKS Ethic

Conyers has the gall to attack Cockrel and others, yet she endorses Kwame’s NUMEROUS philanderings by aligning with his defense. What about all the women EXPLOITED by Kwame? This seems to be A-OK with Monica Conyers now advocating herself under the auspice of “feminism” PULLEASE! Speak OUT against the continuing outrage. A letter was recently sent in that was addressed to the City Council as well as all the contacts below articulating clearly that such a disreputable and public demonstration by many, such as Conyers, and others appointed by the Mayor to office (consisting almost entirely of family and friends) is a significant abuse of authority  that makes a mockery of any purportedly democratic government. Not to mention, the city is now funding Kilpatrick’s “Media Watch” campaign which has absolutely NOTHING to do with benefitting the people but again serves guess who? KWAME KILPATRICK. The public is urged to continue CONTACTING local and state authorities that the situation is escalating to the continued detriment and COST of the city, the people, the State of Michigan and EVERYONE. It is intolerable. Hundreds have contacted federal agencies already and at this point, yes they SHOULD be stepping in.

SPEAK OUT! CONTACT:

Just a few random comments of literally THOUSANDS:

Respect is earned, and Ms. Conyers, you have done nothing in your life to have that. My fellow Detroit citizens, it is time we get some pride and recall these children of City Council. Degenerates like Ms. Conyers and Ms. Rose-Collins must not be allowed to continue in their capacity. They have let us down and put this city to shame. Please contact them, call them, write them, to voice your displeasure. Where the $*%&# are the Fed’s? They, or Governor Granholm, should be stepping in at this time, this is getting ridiculous!”

It’s clear Ms. Conyers is the Chief Appologist for the Mayor on City Council. I also found it curious that she didn’t want all City employees’ text messages released becasue there “might be something in there you don’t want public“.

Let’s let Monica Conyers know how disgusted we are with her tantrums. Monica Conyers: (313) 224-4530 (office) // (313) 224- 2011 (fax)

This does not surprise me at all. I have watched Ms. Conyers for a while and concluded before today that she is inept and completely wrong to be on the council. If they have the same rules as other similar bodies they should be able to exclude her from the questioning process. This behavior is completely out of line and rude. The council does not need to put up with this.”

“To the Governor: … can you please stop “waiting for the legal system to work” – the few citizens of Detroit left and the rest of southeastern Michigan don’t have that kind of time. Businesses and people are fleeing daily – well, those at least that aren’t on KK’s payroll or being handed big tax breaks and city contracts. It’s still early in the day and we have had Tolliver doing damage control in Florida, KK sitting in court and the city council having to adjourn because of temper tantrums. This is ridiculous and needs to come to a stop now.

learn how to treat women, Monica? You mean the way you treat them? Roughing them up in bars when they look at you the wrong way? Is that what you mean, princess?”

Monica Conyers Bar Fight—- Monica Conyers should not be blackening the eyes of party goers….. Blackmailing behind the scenes,“, said Clinton, “is much more effective“. Harry Reid commented that “there’s a dark cloud hanging over Monica Conyers” who “lied to get into the altercation and now she’s lying to mislead the rest of us about how it started and the conditions on the ground“. Travis County District Attorney Ronnie Earle said that Conyers should be indicted on charges of torture, noting that the event “prevented Mews from getting a second helping of birthday cake and another scoop of Haagen Daz“. Further, Howard Dean has remarked that “there’s no way that Conyers could win such a fight“, and Jack Murtha said “she has to run away if she wants to win; it’s her presence at the parties which makes her a target“. He further noted that Monica Conyers is “utterly broken“, and that he hopes “that this will be a lesson to her about attending any parties in the future”….

April 10 2008 Detroit City Council Hearings Recap

There are over 450 comments in queue regarding the ongoing hearings. Wayyy too much to try and include all of them in one post, so here’s a recap, and an image submitted from Sharlene in Detroit which pretty much sums up the general concensus on these proceedings (at end).

Recap of hearing:

  1. The two most FAVORITE council members are: President Kenneth Cockrel and Sheila Cockrel. Why? Because they HAVE a brain. There are several other council members who also conveyed they were willing to get at the truth. And Monica Conyers was NOT one of them – which leads us to the next point.
  2. The LEAST favorite council member by unanimous public comment is: (see also comments posted here and here) — Monica Conyers! Why? B-I-G agenda. And also, for pursuing uninformed lines of questionings that clearly were intended to divert the public from the facts. Like instead of asking for FACTS of execution of Colbert-Osamuede, she asked, “so tell us what you have learned from this experience? what can the council do to improve in the future?” WHAT! This was an offense to many citizens all of whom were wondering where she got a law degree –WONKA SCHOOL? Yes we all learned today that anyone can steal 9 million from the City of Detroit and get away with it if they are Monica Conyers friend. Her “photo feature” on Kilpatrick’s Detroit (in) justice Fund website isn’t helping change public view along with her biased approach to this issue that favor’s sweeping things under the rug instead of: THE TRUTH. 
  3. RE: Representing the City, Attorney McCargo: BUSTED. Sorry, no one really believes your hype that “you didn’t know” despite you expressly REQUIRED the prosecution to split the settlement agreement into 2 SEPARATE documents with intent to hide information. Stefani was happy to settle the FIRST TIME as everyone is aware. City of Detroit’s counsel are the ones that sought all the convoluted agreements and why? Because Kwame was GUILTY of something. Duh. Also by the way, responding to every other question the council asked of you with the pat answer of “I can’t answer that under attorney client privilege” is hiding. Behind technicalities. 
  4. RE: City Attorney Valerie Colbert-Osamuede: BUSTED. Another one that sat there with repeated feigns of ignorance. “Gee, I didn’t know about the secret agreement even though I signed off on your behalf for it, I will excuse myself before the whole world under the auspice of ignorance because I didn’t know about it even though I choreographed it and signed it, and I didn’t know that I should inform y’all at city council about this 8.4 million dollars.” Wah… Right. A local resident describes her testimony best, “I’m positive that I didn’t know what I knew about a secret deal when I knew that there was something to know, but I didn’t know that I should know what I knew when I knew that it was pertinant to know. I can only recollect what I knew at that time to be correct that I knew that there was nothing to know that I should report anything if I didn’t know what I knew. Had a I known what I knew I would have probably known it and I could have told you but since I only knew what I now know I gave you all of the information.” Yep, this sums up the whole 4 hours of it.

And here’s the submission of the day entitled: D is for Decepticons — by Sharlene.  

It’s Scammer Time

It’s Scammer TimeThankfully the city council is not allowing any further “BS” to impede investigation. Nor allowing defense assertions of hiding Kwame’s salami exploits behind the 1986 “communications act”  to impede the cause of the public. It is clear from around the country that everyone, absolutely everyone wants to put an end to “MC SCAMMER & Friends”.

Even a layperson knows the purported “defense” of hiding behind the communications act a flimsy facade, and no defense. Just a desperate attempt on behalf of Kilpatrick’s (well paid) relations who fear further exposure as to just how insidious Kilpatrick’s reign has actually been. The 1986 act was NEVER instituted as means for legal recourse to privileged, elected officials, to legalize exploitation of the public; nor intending amnesty for criminal behavors or provisions for “anonymity” of public officials. Pullease.
