Defeat DC's Default Democratic Dictator of Deliberate Dysfunction, Muriel Bowser, By Voting for Jeremiah Stanback in June!!!

Defeat DC's Default Democratic Dictator of Deliberate Dysfunction, Muriel Bowser By Voting for Jeremiah Stanback in June!!!
Since Washington, DC won "Home Rule" in 1973, every mayor has been a Democrat -- making the mid-term Democratic Primary our de facto mayoral election. Mayor Muriel Bowser was elected with 42,045 votes in the April 2014 primary -- when the city had 450,000 registered voters. I made both of these points in my PREVIOUS BLOG POST about the possibility of long-shot candidate Jeremiah Stanback defeating Ms. Bowser in the June primary -- much to her chagrin, hopefully. It's also worth noting that, while she went on to win the general election with nearly 20% of the vote, she still fell short of Donald Trump's 31.5% of the nation's 200 million voters. Though less popular (percentage-wise) than the worst president in the nation's history, it looks as though the incumbent might go into the Juneteenth primary without any "serious" chal…

Homeless Mayor In DC: A Real, If Distant, Possibility

As I sat in a DC McDonald's at 14th and U streets nw around noon today clogging my arteries with a McChicken (Big Mac sauce added) and a small fry, I was approached by a man who was holding his phone out and swiveling his arm back and forth while telling myself and other patrons "I'm in the paper; I'm running for mayor". I asked "What day???". He said, "Five days ago". Noticing my interest in what he was saying, he then stopped in front of me and let me read part of the article. As I perused it, he introduced himself as Jeremiah and gave me an arm bump, before moving on to others. I then found THIS ARTICLE on my phone and learned that my sense that he might be homeless was in fact correct. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that he'd gathered at least 1,400 of the 2,000 signatures needed to get on the ballot, with the deadline for declaring his candidacy being five days hence on March 21st. Jeremiah Stanback actually has a fighting chanc…

ACTION ALERT: DC Mayor Muriel Bowser Exposing Homeless Children to Asbestos & Lead Particulates

You read the title correctly: "DC Mayor Muriel Bowser Exposing Homeless Children to Asbestos & Lead Particulates". I'm not one for hyperbole. However, the unimaginable is being done by the mayor of our nation's capital. It's deliberate. What makes it worse is that it's for political gain. Muriel Bowser is up for re-election during the DC Democratic Primary on June 19th, 2018. The winner of the Democratic Primary has always gone on to become mayor, which makes the Democratic Primary the city's de facto mayoral election, though we DO go through with the formality of a general election anyway. This disregard of the lives of the poor (including children) is all the more reason NOT to vote for Bowser in June (or in November either, if she wins the primary).

 In DC (and probably many cities) developers are major contributors to mayoral campaigns. Ms. Bowser needs campaign funds to last into early November. DC developers have also sought to redevelop the DC…
