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.

Bad Timing

It was just five months ago that the Duke City Fixes Johnny Mango was waxing poetic about The Almighty Mayor suggesting that he would be the perfect opponent Heather Wilson; who was still running for Congress at the time (read it here).
"Chavez is enormously popular in Albuquerque, and this city is basically Heather Wilson's U.S. House district. In fact, he is probably better known and more popular than Wilson herself...even now...a year and a half before the election."
A lot has changed in these past months. Ok... not really but the perception of Senate candidate Chavez has certainly begun to change as his mayoral shenanigans and administrative failures have come to light. Since the Duke City Fix provided a list of reasons why Marty should run, we'll provide a short list of reasons why he shouldn't.

1. FBI crime statistics indicate that Albuquerque is one of the most dangerous of 349 cities in the nation (ABQ Journal - Subscription).

2. Chavez created a defacto sanctuary city through APD's Standard Operational Procedure.

3. Voters rejected every single one of the Almighty One's city council candidates; proving the mayor may not even have a coat much less coattails.

4. The APOA's expensive full page ad revealing that APD only has 900 sworn officers, despite repeated mayoral claims and promises of close to 1,100.

5. Marty's red light scam-era program is taking in huge amounts of profit; as much as $11.4 MILLION. Of course the spinner in chief tried to make us feel better by calling the profit "excess money" (ABQ Journal - Subscription); profit subsequently dumped into the city's general fund not used for public safety as promised (ABQ Journal - Subscription).

To make matters worse, the city council and long time ally Councilor Mayer are in open rebellion rejecting the mayor's reorganization of the city's Animal Control department (ABQ Journal - Subscription).

The irony here is that The Almighty One has done most of the damage to his political future without the help of a determined political foe. You can be sure that whoever the Republican nominee ends up being (Heather Wilson or Steve Pearce) all of these recent foibles will come to the fore; that is assuming that a Democrat doesn't use them to destroy the mayor in the Democrat primary.

One of the most important aspects of any campaign is timing and Marty couldn't have picked a worse time to run for a higher statewide office (unless of course he was under indictment). No matter how this Senate thing shakes out, this next campaign season is going to be the most interesting in recent memory.

Yes, it couldn't be worse.
Incictments? May be coming sooner than they think. Title III wire tapping is nothing to fool with. Move over Mayor, the Cheif will be going with you as well

Might Angelo Garcia start talking about that fundraiser he had on behalf of the Mayor..............? It's amazing what a little money buys you in prison. Sing jail bird, sing.

The Mayor has nothing to hide or lie about...........? Let's just hope him or his cronies don't call Villanucci a "Kook" again. Damn! Jim wrecked that fool.

Yep, a boy from some little girl in the legal dept, when she went to go for child support, Margaret bailed so that she would get the lion's share of child support because she filed first. Guess beatin the hell out of her wasn't enough, but a kid that would cut into her money was.....No one ever sees his son(s), but his daughter is more than visible, (think Brittany Spears visible) when she goes out or shows at one of the city functions.

Marty why don't you try and play nice with everyone you have a beef/grudge with i.e. (APOA,Fire, and all the Big Unions within the City) that's where I would start and branch out from there (City Council). If you look back at your very first Administration and compare to today. Not even close. For some reason you have decided to step on, over, and around all those who supported you in the beginning. It doesn't last forever, and there are no "DO OVERS".

Yupp, it's true, it's a boy & I met him. Kinda fat & ugly & really stupid. They named him Marc Bralley, I mean "Eye". Oh brother, this is the most lame site. You really think that Brad & the rest of the faggots over at APS would have let that slip on by if it were true? Get a life!

THE GOP will find out all the DIRT. "Fightin' Hard, Dirty, and Nasty". You know what they say "It doesn't matter if it's true or not. Perception is reality in this world." Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha aha

Put OUT, or OUT of a job. That's how it works at City Hall.

As much as I detest the little man, why would he put himself out there politically knowing that there's so much dirt out there on him--

especially if he actually told APD (or the Chief)to make his DV charges go away--that that's big time cover-up and probably rises to the federal level and at the very least, they could lose their jobs over that!

If that's all true, why would he & others jeopardize themselves like that?

Go figure!!!!
