Political attacks not forgotten

I read with amusement in the Times-Call, and saw on TV during a recent council meeting, the musings of Longmont Area Democrat (LAD) President and Vice-President John & Judy Bigger in regards to the outcome of Longmont’s election.  Maybe they’re not aware that when Mayor Dennis Coombs denounced certain campaign activity that he was, in all reality, talking about them and their cohorts.

One Step “Forward”, Two Steps Back

Moving Longmont Forward was established for one sole purpose – to remove my husband from office. And by seven-tenths of a percent of the vote, they did. And for that I thank them because our family got to take its first vacation in two years, to Disneyland – a vacation well deserved by all! But, that victory came at a cost, and the cost was truthfulness and integrity in campaigning. Continue reading

Moving Longmont Forward…with attack mailers

It’s good to see the double-standard bearing hypocrites in Longmont still have somewhat of a pulse.  Possibly coming soon to a mailbox near you is an attack mailer aimed at Mayor Bryan Baum by an innocuous sounding political committee called “Moving Longmont Forward” or MLF.  This is a group of liberal/progressives who are obviously a hateful and angry group based on the mailer they sent out.

Best display of pure hatred of citizens from Sean McCoy

With over 600 views and counting, the following YouTube video of Longmont City Councilmember Sean McCoy shows him at his nastiest best, or worst depending on your perspective.  Unless you know what he’s talking about here, it’s pretty hard to follow his usual style of stumbling his way through a prepared speech.

Plugging ears, closing eyes not a winning strategy

If only they’d cover their mouths

Last week it was Longmont Area Democrat President John Bigger telling his flock to turn its collective heads and not be “sucked in” to, well, basically the truth told about their candidates.  This week it’s fellow LAD member Kay (sic) Fissinger in the Times-Call – that paper she claims is of the evil Lehman spawn – basically parroting the strategy of “close your eyes” and “cover your ears”.   Continue reading

Mayoral candidate Coombs encourages breaking local papers rules

When you have a campaign manager for two of the biggest electoral flops in recent Longmont history behind you (Karen Benker and Richard Juday), it’s no surprise that you’ll come across mistakes like this.
Whoever is running Longmont mayoral candidate Dennis Coombs Facebook page – and we’ll just have to assume it’s Mr. Coombs himself or that he’s approving everything on it – has recently made the suggestion that supporters should call the Times-Call‘s T-C Line and show support for Mr. Coombs.  Here it is: Continue reading

Longmont ignorati awakens to redistricting debate

Uh oh, the scam that was the State House redistricting that took place a decade ago is about to be pulled out from under the rugs of the shysters who support it.  While the commission charged with deciding the districts had already been in session for hours, local liberal/progressive mouthpiece Kaye Fissinger told her mentally challenged fellow travelers to contact said commission members.  A little late for that, genius. Continue reading

No one ever said anything about corruption?

The May 4, 2010 Longmont City Council meeting was full of all kinds of twists, turns, surprises, and laughs.  There was also some mass amnesia going on amongst some in the crowd, City Council, and the Election Committee.

(As a side note, it was painfully obvious the sore losers from the 2009 election are still mighty sore (and still mighty losers).  It’s a shame when, a) the relatively uneducated jump into local politics and have a whole few months under their belt and think they got it all figured out, b) play dirty during the campaign, c) lose, and d) still can’t believe they lost and lash out in all directions.  Go back to being Obama Zombies, that isn’t too tough.  There’s serious work to be done here at the local level, go play on the freeway) Continue reading

Longmont LEFT out of Heaven(Fest)

A self-described “charlatan of limited understanding” tried to plead his case for Longmont to halt the permit process of the HeavenFest Christian concert festival at Union Reservoir.  This was the disconnected, fanatical, deranged, lunatic (or fill in your own adjective) fringe at its finest.  The video is worth watching, along with the hilarious commentary, which you can see at this YouTube link.

The speaker is non-Longmont resident Duane Leise, who is also theregistered agent for “What’s In It For Longmont?“, the LLC that’s currently listed as delinquent with the Colorado Secretary of State, which is ironic in and of itself as these same people were just seen recently picketing a reception for a Secretary of State candidate.  The other names in the LLC filing should sound somewhat familiar:  M. Douglas Wray, Kaye Fissinger, and Anita Lynch, sort of a who’s who (more like a what’s that?) of the Longmont leftwing scene.

We keep being told by them that their problem is not with religion or “the good people” who attend certain churches, so are we supposed to take it as a coincidence that they almost exclusively target churches?  Examples:

  • LifeBridge Christian Church – where to start, they got their name and reason for existence because of the Union annexation and development.  But they couldn’t stop at agreeing to disagree, there was no level they wouldn’t stoop to.  This has been written about here and other places ad nauseum, and all they accomplished was pushing a church out of Longmont into the welcoming hands of Firestone with probably lower property taxes (not in Boulder County) and more lenient building codes (like sign height limitations).
  • Rocky Mountain Christian Church – the same hate filled diatribes aimed at LifeBridge were also voiced by these same people in the case of this church’s expansion plans.
  • Front Range Christian Fellowship Church – the church by the Super Walmart they went after because of its very modest expansion plans.  Remember this article and YouTube video of Councilmember Sean McCoy making his usual cheap shots?  That was followed up by Kaye Fissinger making her usual demands from the podium.                …and now
  •  HeavenFest – they are using every medium available to put a stop to this Christian-based concert festival: their own new website, Longmont Ledger, local radio, city council speakers, etc.  Sounds like it’s all for nothing as City Council wont even vote on this and the permit should be issued any day now.

I bring the anti-religious angle up because as you see in the video, this crank complains that people have called him an atheist for being against the LifeBridge development.  Maybe they have, but that’s not why people find this group detestable (notice he didn’t deny it?).  I personally don’t care what the religion or politics are of these people or anyone else for that matter.  It’s the intent and actions that speak louder.  These people, which include most of the others who have recently spoken out against HeavenFest, aren’t content with just making their case – they have to go into character assassination of the groups they are fighting against or people who may not agree with them.

Just look at the rants on their websites (those that haven’t been deleted, that is) and how they talk at City Council meetings.  It’s no wonder the two candidates they’ve put up for election (Kaye Fissinger and WIIFL co-founder Richard Juday) were trounced in their run for city council.  Yet all you’ll hear is that we just had a low voter turnoutwho’s stopping their supporters from voting?  Yep, it’s nonsense.  Fact is they don’t have the support they think they do – they’re screwballs in the eyes of most normal, rational people in the city.

So, remember, laugh when you hear them say “this has nothing to do with religion”.  Or better yet, make a drinking game out of it! 

(I invite commenters to help me recall the names of the people who have spoken out against the bulleted points above)
