Major fireworks at Hinds BOS today. Video included.

Major fireworks at the Hinds BOS today between Stokes and Fisher. Uploading videos right now but trust me, its going to be good.

Still uploading and haven't been able to go through and find the spots that are good but needless to say, Kenneth Stokes goes at it with Phil Fisher and Peggy Hobson-Calhoun. Even calls Phil "stupid" at one point.

OK, here is what happened. The Board approved on a 3-2 vote in December to hire Malachi Financial Products (Porter Bingham) to be the "adviser" if the county sold bonds to finance the Byram-Clinton corridor project. You can guess how each supervisor voted. Fast forward to the last meeting. The only members present were Peggy, Phil, and Robert. You can guess what took place next. A quorum was present so they passed a motion on a 2-1 vote to terminate the relationship with Malachi for that project. What took place today was Doug Anderson placed rescinding the vote on the agenda.

There was a big fight over whether a motion to reconsider or rescind an earlier vote could be made by the losing side or those who were absent. They went round and round on Robert's Rules of Order until the board attorney told them they could indeed do so. Ms. Hobson-Calhoun pointed out they would pay at least $200,000 to Malachi to study the project even though the county's own Department of Economic Development could do it for $10,000. I'm not making this up. Kenneth Stokes jumped in and got real hostile...and loud.He said the project would never be completed. Harvey was against and would make sure it didn't happen, and they needed to pay Malachi the $200,000 to study the project. The motion to rescind the termination passed 3-2- Graham, Anderson, Stokes. Game over, right? Wrong.

The board later went into executive session. Mr. Stokes NEVER stays for executive session. He usually leaves the meeting, as he did today. Doug Anderson did not stay for the executive session either. Sooooo.... when they come out of executive session, its Peggy, Phil, and Robert. Peggy then makes a motion to reconsider the earlier vote in the meeting, its then rescinded by a 3-2 vote, terminating the deal with Malachi. Watch clip 7 posted below. It is VERY funny and EVERYONE there, including Mr. Graham, was laughing... loudly. Robert Graham kept laughing and saying "I knew y'all were going to do this". Mr. Stokes might should learn he should stay for the entire meeting instead of taking full-time pay for part-time work (Thank you Professor Jackson for that line.).

However, Kenneth and Phil sparred after the first round over Clinton-Byram corridor project but this fight was over a proposal Phil Fisher made over changing how the agenda is set. Needless to say, they went at it. I'll label the clips below for the good stuff. Enjoy.

Malachi discussion starts at 22:30. Peggy wastes no time laying into Malachi at 26:50 and pulls no punches.

Clip begins with Stokes attacking project. Peggy then sets him straight at 1:44. Peggy then lays into Mayor Harvey at 3:20. Worth watching. She then points out how he helps Madison and Rankin counties with some services but does not do the same for Hinds County (6:55). Damn. Watching it again. Curt is right, she is wearing out Harvey. Can't think of when the last time Harvey took something like this on the chin. Get ready Peggy, you just made an enemy out of the Jackson Free Press. Fisher than defends the project at 10:45 and attempts to impart some knowledge to Stokes, finding it to be a difficult task. Stokes blows up at 14:30. Stokes later makes faces like a two-year old as Fisher corrects him. Pretty funny.

Fisher & Stokes get into at 2:20. VERY entertaining.

Routine stuff. Hearing on converting private road to public for school bus turnaround. You can ignore this clip.

Supervisors grill Malachi again. This clip is worth watching for the first half.

Routine stuff.

The fun begins halfway into the clip when motion is made to rescind the earlier vote. Start at 5:05.

Ms. Calhoun kicked King Harvey in his royal ass on video 2.

Her face in video 2 is priceless. Made the words coming out of her mouth secondary. I would've paid good money to see HRH Harvey's face during the verbal beatdown.

As for Stokes, I'll take your word for it. Listening to him longer than 3.2 seconds makes my ears bleed.

WLBT ran a brief clip of this tonight.


Are we watching a poor mentally retarded individual ?

So, Ms. Calhoun ... who seems to have a very good understanding of where the county is on the corridor project (both in planning & funding) ... says definitely "in house" capabilities exist at a cost of $10,000 to the county that would cover what three other board members insist on paying an "outside" firm at least 20 times as much? The same work? WHY? It makes me think the "outside" firm ... MUST have something going for it; OR ... three board members are about as smart as my wife thinks I am ... and that ain't a bunch.

LBT has played the video of Stokes till finally cows entered the studio.

I'm really sorry to see that this black drape has been dropped over the Hinds Co. B.O.S. I had so hoped Stokes might turn over a new leaf when in fact he's wallowed up under the same old swamp-log full of rancid shit.

There IS no hope. Stop looking for it. Stop anticipating it.

Fisher isn't scared.
As an elected official, the time to learn of the board's business is before the meeting and not during the meeting. Your office is right down the hall if you had any questions.

Turn about is fair play!

Ms Calhoun, brilliant strategy. Thank you for saving Hinds County taxpayers $190,000 today.

The board needs to have a incompetency hearing.

BTW, I do have a paypal account. This was far better than the Encore movie I missed.

went into exec session and cleaned it up, again. Great move.

"Hobson-Calhoun pointed out they would pay at least $200,000 to Malachi to study the project even though the county's own Department of Economic Development could do it for $10,000"

That kind of says it all, doesn't it. Thanks, KF, for capturing this so everyone will know.

Hinds County ... A World of Difference!

Stokes is adamant that the parkway is never going to happen but he still wants to spend $200,000 on a "study".

There is no saving Jackson and Hinds.

Armondeaux said...

Stokes needs to push the corridor project through so he will have another road he can try to rename.

thank you phil fisher and quentin whitwell for giving a voice to the voiceless in this city while these tyrants run ruffshod over the city and county

Anonymous said...

yes ... thanks quentin for getting the roadside puppy sales turned off ... every time i drive on the third-world streets in my nejax neighborhood i'm reminded how great it was that you got to work right away on the stuff that really mattered ... we can all accept our streets returning to the equivalent of gravel roads as long as we've stopped the sale of puppies outside the empty store fronts on county line ... talk to lee paris lately?

Whitwell better be careful or Mama Stokes is gonna have her man break his foot off in Whitwell's ass. Between Stokes the Large and Hatwoman, we should not be lacking for entertainment around here.

Whitwell will be OK unless he goes in dark alleys where Stokes the Large lurks.......

All conversation about "re-branding" Hinds County ended when Stokes was sworn into the Hinds BOS.

Kenny beat em' to it .

The citizens of Hinds that elected Stokes are just plain stupid to think that his racist agenda will benefit anyone but himself. To them, you are getting what you deserve

It is depressing to know our tax dollars are helping the Stokes twins maintain their girth.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
