The Piercing Truth

This is right from the dictionary and seems to describe Albuquerque, Berry and Schultz. Fascism (f ash ,izem) noun An authoritarian right wing system of government and/or social organization. (in general use) extreme right wing, authoritarian, chauvinistic and/or intolerant views or practices. Fascism tends to include a belief in the supremacy of one group over another, national, ethnic, especially social strata or monetarily; a contempt for democracy, an insistence on obedience to a powerful leader, and a strong demagogic approach.

Anybody but Marty

We've been watching with some amusement as the liberal side of the blogosphere has been working itself into a lather over the Almighty Mayor's senatorial campaign. Of course their dreeeam candidate is busy trying to become Hillary's Veeep as he sees his presidential aspirations slipping away (Heath Haussamen).

His Largeness in Santa Fe (or Iowa, or New Hampshire, or Nevada) is seen as a sure thing if he were to jump into the senate race and the SurveyUSA poll conducted for KOB-TV earlier in the month seems to support that idea. However, "progressives" and the blog left aren't taking any chances and have started a Draft Udall campaign that is complete with a Draft Udall website.

Meanwhile Marty and company are busy trying to tout a poll that was supposedly conducted for former CD1 candidate Patricia Madrid by Lake Research. Chavez's people claim that the poll shows Chavez edging out Heather Wilson by 1 point (Democracy for New Mexico).
"Celinda Lake of Lake Research is the Chavez campaign's polling consultant (see our previous post), so even these selective data should be taken with a grain of salt. But the real question is why the complete polling results haven't been released."
For those of you who don't already know Democracy for New Mexico would be considered a little left of Mao and a bastion of "progressive" thought (or lack thereof). More importantly they embrace Democrat candidates as a matter of course.
(Sidebar)
In our opinion the website would be more appropriately named New Mexico for Democrats because democracy and freedom have nothing to do with their positions or the candidates they endorse... but we digress.
(End Sidebar)
The point is this "progressive" website is shall we say, less than enthused about the chief Martycrat running for U.S. Senate, despite (or perhaps because of) his official registration as a Democrat. This is precisely the group that the Almighty Mayor has been wooing with his green city initiatives and his indoctrination... uh, "training" flick "An Inconvenience to Albuquerque (city employees)."
"Unfortunately for Chavez, in recent SurveyUSA polling, Chavez has far less support than either Wilson or Pearce. Largely due to the fact that many progressive Democrats just don't trust the Mayor."
Despite sounding like a cross between federal law enforcement and a breakfast restaurant, NMFBIHOP is another way left of center blog. They too seem to have big problems with Marty and are actively advocating a Udall candidacy.

From what we've read, the issue comes down to trust. Progressive Democrats don't trust that Marty is really one of them and they're afraid (with good reason) that if the mayor of Albuquerque were to prevail in the Democrat primary, he'd turn around and lose to either of the major Republican candidates. Even more troubling for the "progressives" is their suspicion that if Chavez were to somehow win the Senate race, that he'd turn around and ignore them the way he has for most of his time as Mayor of Albuquerque.

The Dems seem to see what so many here still seem to miss. Marty is not a Dem. nor beholden to any one party or issue... he is more a chameleon who can adopt the colors around him as needed (i.e. a "perfect storm" of a politician). Machiavellian in the extreme, Marty makes a great leader if you agree with whatever side he is on that year, however next year or even next week, you may be on the "outs" and there will be a new "flavor of the week" that he will swear he has ALWAYS believed in.

You guys cry about the mayor however,everytime he runs for office, he always has APD's endorsement.Your endorsement means something, don't treat it with such disrespect and then complain about your situation. You know how bad he has always screwed you and you keep getting fooled. You will do it again! The mayor plays you guys like a fiddle. You go to sleep with dogs ,you wake up with flees. Who's fault is that? You need to get control of your union and back an honest guy. Every honest guy that could give marty a run for his money has gotten his head handed back to him for their trouble,with the help of APD.

He owns the APOA, at least that is what Ray Boy has said in the past.

Anonymous said...

He does own the APOA. He gave the past APOA president the director of labor relations job for getting the APOA to endorse him, even after the vote of the members to stay out of it. This guy went from Open Space officer to director of labor relations, what a banana republic.

The APOA gets what it deserves.

Anonymous said...

Regrettably it seems all these comments are true. Though the recent "Albuquerque is Not Safe" is as much a hair on Chavez's ass as it is for the chief, time will tell. Hey APOA forget about these guys and stay out of the business of endorsing anybody.

Anonymous said...

APOA Union President Paul Pacheco endorsed Marty so he would make his best friend, Gilbert Gallegos, Chief. Paul Gave Marty $40,000 of union money, just so Marty could hose APD Officers and appoint Gallegos.

Marty ended up firing Gallegos, who was in way over his head. Seems Gil Gallegos only spent his time chasing women, then letting them take money and drugs in exchange for sexual favors rather than runing APD.

That's why Marty fired him, hoping to keep that hushed. Gallegos' wife found out and left him shortly after he was fired......

Now,,,, Marty wants to be a senator.....He'll destroy New Mexico like he did Albuq.

I love this ridiculous move to start calling the Democratic Party the "democrat party"

What sophomoric idiocy. Let's start calling the Republican Party the "Republic Party." Isn't that cute?

Right wing nut jobs???? I'm a bleeding heart liberal and in agreement with most of the editorials on this blog...

I prefer the term leftist over bleeding heart liberal, and I'm also one of those progressive bloggers. I read this blog all the time. You guys are great...I get my best laughs over here. Especially in the comments. One thing I have to say for you guys, you don't mind getting really rude in your comments. I personally think we're way to civil over in our camp. By the way, I've been dying to know who you all are here at the Eye. From reading this blog I guess I have my answer. You're police or at least their buddies. Nice.

Nah we'll leave the sophism to those for whom it's stock in trade: the dumbocrats- We call 'em what they are- cowards, weaklings and the mentally infirm. A bunch of half-wit socialist cum commies that haven't a dime between them and no prospect for success or relevence. When I'm back at my other home in Greenwich I fire up this blog on my Iphone at the club and pass it round- it's fun over a nice single malt to laugh at the fat slob governor in a cheap suit, police management antics and of course the fate of the world as it's held in the balance of funny little patrithhhaaaa' madrid's hand's; what a hoot. keep up the stellar work eye...

TJ?
He's like that hillbilly's bitch on "Deliverance". Ray makes him squeel like a pig.
He's chosen this path as they feed him exactly what they want him to print. This way there's not work involved and all he has to do is stop by 'Dunkin-Donuts' everyday and pick up the fifth floor's snacks. The 5th floor's bitch all right; they mock him.

Move aside Marty. Your own party doesn't want to see you there, or they know you can't win.
Guess you'll have to run for Mayor again.

He'll just take it out on the 'bus boy,' Greg. Give him a good "Bitch whippin', as his department is out of control.
Bus drivers grabbing a piece of ass and lunch on their route while everybody( 5 people) sit on the bus waiting? Come on, this is not Cartigena, Columbia. Or is it?
Rest assured Michael Douglas or Kathleen Turner won't be showing anytime soon to ride these buses or trolleys full of preverts.

Even the Democrats hate nickel/dime Chavez, he thought he might run for US Senate! What on God’s earth possessesed him? Come on, get one of his Three Stooges to flip a coin to see who is going to break the news to his short ass. Do the man a favor, give him awake up call.

Lesson learned: Don’t dream beyond your means.

Did City Chief Financial Officer Gail/Linda Reese (Jim Villanucci Radio Call in, see journal story from June 30,2007) retire or get fired from her job? Editorial in today's journal alludes to that. If so, Why? She is a huge Marty backer.

Anonymous said...

Aha! Bus Boy (Marty's Payne in the ass) it was soo comical when viewing the Channel 4 tapes of his drivers doing shit they are are not supposed to. "that is not acceptable, that is not acceptable, that is not acceptable, Etc, , , ).

What are you going to do about it?

"Well I am going to put them on another bus, but this time the only passanger will be bus drivers, this way we don't get so many complaints."

But you know, you can't totally fault the bus drivers, I mean the buses are too darn big for the drive-through. But if anything they should at least ask if anyone wants anything from Wendys, "a hot pie? a shake? a chili bowl? a slurpie from 7-11?"

Afterall most of the passanger are the bums who are riding the bus up and down trying to stay warm and have not had a bite to eat all day.

That is rude!

Just like Margaret Arragon and her cousin Manny.
Nobody's talking about the fact that she was the realtor, for the property in that court house scandal and shared her ill-gotten booty with then still husband Marty. By the way the land was way overpriced and was bought from a crony of His Majesty.
Please, let's all get real here. Get a clue people.

It's actually $114K & I was making $55K prior to my current position with the city. I've never collected unemployment benefits in my life, not a dime. Bet you can't say that....Anyway, like I said, He has my vote.....my shoe leather and my cash contributions! GO MARTY!
