Jonathan Narcisse of Iowa and Pulling the Race Card Part II

As it is New Year’s Eve, it is time to toss out the old and bring in the new…

All except Jonathan Narcisse that is…

Jonathan Narcisse Spirals Out of Control Right Out of the Gate

Same old political scrubbing tricks, different election cycle!

Iowa vet your, and I use the term loosely in this case, ‘candidates’ for governor or any other office.


Des Moines Iowa Meet and Greet with Herman Cain

Via Eyes on the Ground in Iowa – Frank reports: “Please feel free to use any or all of this synopsis to get the word out. It was one the finest events I have ever attended..”


Today at 5:00 PM at Smoky Row sandwich shop here in Des Moines, I had the opportunity with a dear friend to attend a meet and greet with Herman Cain.   As Smoky Row is a fairly small shop, this meet and greet had standing room only.  I would like to say there were 100 of us packed into this party room plus there were people standing at either entrance trying to get in to hear this man speak.   

Mr Cain started by talking for approximately 15 to 20 minutes and for the rest of the time took questions from the audience.  I was chosen to ask the lead question and asked him to explain his time as the head of the FED in Kansas City, followed by his affiliation with the FED since that time, and finally the quote by him in late 2010 where he was quoted in interview that he did not think we needed to audit the FED.

Mr Cain’s response was:  “I did head the KC branch of the FED 1994 – 1995 when their mission was to control inflation through our money supply”.  At the point he felt this was complete, he said “Mission Accomplished” and left the FED to pursue other endeavors.  Since leaving the FED in the mid nineties, he no longer has any affiliation with this entity. 

To my next question concerning the statement of auditing the FED, his reply was: “I do not know what the mission of the FED is now except to print money for the gov’t to spend and spend.  I do know that each branch of the FED does its own audit each month and I feel that nothing would be found by auditing.  However, I do not and will not defend the FED, nor would I impede any audit that the people would call for”

At this point he stated adamantly that the problem with our economy was the SPENDING.

The next question asked centered on how he would handle the economy and put people back to work…To this he replied:

  • First  stopping the spending by reviewing government agencies and cutting programs that were blatantly useless, followed by review of all federal agencies and cutting where appropriate. 
  • Next by lowering the corporate tax rate to bring manufacturing back to America and allowing them to control their own money.
  • Next was the implementing of the “Fair Tax” to allow everyone to keep more of their own earned dollars and thereby eliminating the need for the IRS.

He was then asked about how he would handle the relationship between Pakistan and the United States whereupon  his first response was: “Why would we send financial aid to any country who dislikes us?”  He then stated that even before being sworn into office, he would meet with the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the leading generals in each theatre we are in to identify our missions and decide what, if any, were indeed in the best interest of the United States and if not, to bring our troops out of harm’s way.

He then went on to discuss meeting, with again, the Joint Chiefs of Staff in order to decide relationships with all countries, friend or foe and determine policy with each individual nation. 

On our immigration reform he would secure our borders with Mexico first, then back each state’s power to identify, prosecute, and deport illegal aliens, while at the same time reduce the bureaucracy to immigrants who wish to  come in the front door to become citizens.  He gave the example of a lady immigrant who was half way through the process to become a naturalized citizen when INS informed her that they had lost her paperwork and she had to start the whole process from the beginning again.   As he stated “That is NO way to treat people”

Lastly when asked “if and when” he was going to announce his candidacy for president, we were told that this coming Saturday he would be in Atlanta, Ga. With about 10,000 of his closest friends and did we think he would really tell them that he was not going to run?  Lol

Let me say in closing that I liked Mr. Cain from before the debate although I had never heard him in person.  After seeing and talking with him today, I feel this man is the genuine deal.  I feel he is honest, has good Christian values, and has great ideas on solving the problems plaguing our fine country.  I would encourage anyone to go and listen to this man in person and if able to attend a meet and greet to speak with him one on one as I did today.  We have got to get away from career politicians and elect strong conservatives into office with term limits..     That is MY opinion….

My Proudest Moment

Des Moines Iowa Displays Lackluster Support for Union so School Bus It In!

Frank, our eyes on the ground, at the State Capitol in Iowa reported today:

These are pics I took today at the rally the unions had at the Iowa State Capitol in Des Moines. Please note that the buses in pics are separate buses unloading people from Omaha and other places. Also, West Des Moines schools should be very proud of using their school buses to bring in union people.


The picture of them in front of the capitol was taken early, however, when I left it had expanded clear down to the steps at the forefront of the pic due to the influx of buses. I did manage to piss off some of the protestors however. One was a group of DSM firefighters who came up from behind us and thought they were going to bully their way between people. I stood my ground and dared them to come between myself and others. They approached to 3-4 ft from me, then veered off. Then I went to where buses were unloaded and made sure I was loud enough to be heard as I asked people unloading: HOW MUCH THEY PAYING YOU TO BE HERE??? WHO HAS BALLS ENOUGH TO TELL THE TRUTH?” Needless to say, I got some very dirty looks. J

I am hoping that all I send this to are able to receive it. Please respond if you do get it as some email accounts are not able to get big files. If you respond, I will be able to know who I need to compress all pics with winzip and send to those I don’t hear back from.


Iowa Alert – Jonathan Narcisse’s Phantom Threats vs Well… You Be the Judge

What would the average American citizen do, if they were threatened, not just once, but multiple times? Common senseone would make a police reportbut not Iowan Jonathan Narcisse as reported in “School Board Meeting Erupts In Anger“:

“…”I’ve taken the threats seriously. I feel like I’ve taken precautions, upped by life insurance, talked to people about how to deal with it,” Narcisse said.

Strong asked, “Have you taken it to police?”

“I have spoken to police,” Narcisse said.

Des Moines police told KCCI that they have had no reports of any threats on Narcisse…”

Oh those mysterious phantom threats! Wherever did they go, especially since running for governor is a step above the school board!?!

However, irony should not escape anyone viewing statements made by Mr. Jonathan Narcisse on a 912er’s Facebook this very morning. Screen capture

The most transparent or veiled threat as viewed in paragraph three

“…For example when I’ve been asked how you get results in politics I have been very clear – you pull arms out of sockets, you shatter knee caps and at times you ask – open casket or cremation…”

Iowa… You be the judge!

Does Jonathan Narcisse Support Socialist, Democratic, Union or Liberal Agendas?

A bit of ancient and last century history~

Way back in November 1995 The Militant (A Socialist Newspaper) ran an article “Curtis Prepares for Hearing”  that details

“…This letter was sent to the Iowa Board of Parole on October 24 from Jonathan Narcisse, publisher of The Communicator, the major Black community newspaper distributed in Des Moines and Waterloo Iowa. It was written by Narcisse in response to an effort being organized by supporters of imprisoned union and socialist activist Mark Curtis…”

I would hesitate to guess that would be a huge YES on Support, Union, and Socialist! And to bring the reader up to speed, this is Mark Curtis!

Way back in the spring of 1996 the Capitol Area Christian News offers an article entitled “A Little National News for the Radical Fringe” and towards the bottom of the page incorporated within the piece one finds

“…The Des Moines Register (9 Feb.) responded with more integrity, even reprinting excerpts of the pamphlet. The publisher of Ankeny Today, Jonathan Narcisse, disgraced himself and journalism by firing Mr. Leach…”

What is to made from this decision and review, hmm? Wouldn’t Alinsky be so proud? Do Socialist and Union Supporters ever really outgrow their beliefs?

Fast Forward to Current Events~

So in March of this past year Mr. Jonathan Narcisse vows to run as a Democratic Candidate for Governor and dredges up a “prop testimonial” picture taken with Obama from 2008 as if that’s a winning decision. That campaign didn’t work out too well.  But then he goes on the “Crist” Twist or “Specter” Spectacle, because if you can’t win a spot on the ballot, double down and go Independent, and really waste time and money.

I’d have to say this confirms Democratic, then limping over to Independent as needed. Does Iowa really need a chameleon of the moment?

And yet there are more revelations to come….

Iowa – Email Privacy Issues Follow Jonathan Narcisse Wherever He Goes

One would expect that any candidate for any state governor position, in these United States of America, to be of unquestionable character and ethics.

What if a candidate, for the office of Iowa Governor, has repeatedly displayed a lack of safeguarding and securing private and privileged information within the confines of their previous respective job duties? If I were an Iowa resident, I would certainly want to know any candidate’s record. For your perusal:

Iowa, Can You See It Now?

Iowans, Have You Ever Corresponded with Mr. Narcisse Via Email? Will Your Communications Become A Publicity Stunt in the Future or Aspects of Your Discussions Released? Will It Be Passed To a Third Shill To Work On? Do High School Antics of Passing Notes, Pass The Smell Test of Vetting a Gubernatorial Candidate’s Qualifications?

We must examine a series of strange events involving just this very blog ~

Mr. Jonathan Narcisse – INO (Independent in Name Only) ALERT to IOWA Voters! written after I was alerted to various inconsistencies.

An exchange between the candidate and I occurred in comments, and I revealed via a new piece Jonathan Narcisse Has a Temper Tantrum and Pulls Out The Race Card on This Conservative Blogger.

In the meantime, someone right there in Iowa, privy to the fact that no phone calls were ever exchanged between Mr. Narcisse and myself, decided to suddenly get in the mix and was soundly rebuffed via a solo tribute When You Can’t Defend Yourself – Send in the Shills and his employer’s IP address blocked.

*** When relevant and one of my article’s pertains to a particular area of the country, I will often link it elsewhere for the benefit of that particular community. Such is the case here and where the shill reveals himself by open responses:

Side note to purported The Conservative Guy…. In a pig’s eye~

Mr. Jonathan Narcisse – INO (Independent in Name Only) ALERT to IOWA Voters!

Are you kidding me? What a slug! Is this the very best that Iowa has to offer? Jonathan Narcisse? A reformed, and I mean that in the changeling way, a Liberal Socialistic Democrat. It makes no difference how you dress one up with a new party tag, a DINO (Democrat in Name Only) who is trying to Trojan Horse the chameleon tactic of the Independent party candidate label, for ease of passing through the gate of the Governor’s mansion, shouldn’t fool anyone in Iowa or anywhere else.

Jonathan Narcisse At Campaign For Liberty Meeting

IowaWorthFightingFor | November 08, 2009

Jonathan Narcisse gives a speech to the Campaign for Liberty crowd. His Iowa Worth Fighting For speech A Ten Step Plan for Twentieth Century Governance drew several applause. People all around Iowa are aware of the need to reshape our state government and Jon’s plan is key to achieving this goal.

To the shoddy filming, to the crowd’s well established speaking voice overs and “placed on ignore” of Narcisse, to his steady reading without a teleprompter but a well stocked podium, Iowa can not possibly be impressed.

Jon Narcisse – April 8 2008 – Des Moines School Board

jneider | April 11, 2008

Des Moines School Board member Jon Narcisse discusses limits on board member use of district e-mail.

Seems they always start with breaking the small rules, make excuses, and become Progressively emboldened and move on to bigger fish.

Why is the Bleeding Heartland which describes its own blog as

Bleeding Heartland is a community blog for Democrats and progressives in the state of Iowa. Join up, post your thoughts as comments or diaries, and help build up current majorities and keep our leadership honest.

so interested in Mr. Jonathan Narcisse? hmm?

Possibly due to Mr. Narcisse himself…

The whining TOQ V3N3 for a distinct portion of the population?

Look at the CCs on a email that he replied to a Student, how embarrassing was this for the student? No privacy!

A glorified and titled Community Organizer? FY 2004 for a distinct portion of the population?

Tipping into Alinsky attack tactics? Narcisse Weekly Report, an ample example:

“…My question, Dr. Sebring, was about socio-economic status and circumstance. Regarding only two categories of socio-economic status I am confused. When I look at our socio-economic data I see categories like race and English Language Learners. Also by circumstance I find we maintain special education data.

Now if I am wrong about race, for example, being a socio-economic category, can you expand the provided information to include breakdowns by race, special education enrollment and English Language Learner status?

As for spending at the building level it will help to have a breakdown both by what is directly spent at the classroom level and what is spent directly at the building level. What I don’t want to see in this circumstance are District costs stretched out over our many schools. For the sake of insight I would like to know how much of spending takes place at the site level and how much at the District level.

Also, having this information will either confirm or dispel a wide spread perception out there. Lacking the resources of my opponents to do mass mailings and purchase lots of advertising, I had to rely on a very grassroots, groundpounding approach to getting elected. This involved going to schools, senior centers, churches and knocking on countless doors. I even stopped people in public settings like at the grocery store and asked them their opinions. This approach, I believe, contributed to me having a very diverse geographic base of support as broken down in the Register’s analysis following the election.

There is a split in this town Dr. Sebring. It is deep and heart felt. It is perceived one side of town gets their students taken care of and the rest don’t. I am not accepting this portrayal as fact. Instead I would like to examine the hard data and then, and only then, form my opinion. This seems the responsible approach to addressing such a widespread concern as articulated to me both in 2005 and 2007…”

Where have I seen this before? hmm?

Oh but it gets even better Jonathan Narcisse Is A Loser Who Doesn’t Pay His Bills

I guess it worked well enough for the President he supported, so he assumes that it works as handily for Iowa’s gubernatorial candidate!
