Just Another Day in Jackson

 Warning: The Lumumba Administration considers this post to be disinformation.

 Jackson Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba met with State Senators John Horhn, David Blount, Sollie Norwood and Representatives De'Keither Stamps, Zakiyah Summers, Hillman Frazier, Chris Bell, and Earle Banks Wednesday to discuss the water crisis.  The legislators represent Jackson.  Such a meeting is expected during an emergency such as the water crisis.  However, what was interesting was who accompanied the Mayor. 


The Mayor brought his posse of Chief of Staff Dr. Safiyah Omari, "Hondo Lumumba", Pastor Dewayne Pickett, and Ward 2 Councilwoman Angelique Lee. The meeting was barely underway when the posse berated the Jackson delegation because some signed a letter to the Governor asking for help last Monday. You read that correctly.  Pastor Pickett, Hondo, and Dr. Omari chewed out Jackson's State Senators for asking the Governor for help as the water treatment system completely failed.  Remember when Dr. Omari chewed out the Jackson City Council? Apparently Dr. Omari and her partners in arrogance used the same playbook in this meeting.  How dare they try to get help as Jackson businesses and homes went without water while what little water there was was undrinkable.

What drove their militancy? Apparently the Mayor's crew is expecting bushels of federal funds to make their way to Jackson to fix the water treatment system and don't want the state to have any say in how it is used.  The Mayor even blamed the state at one point as he said the city was talking to a private management company to run the water plants but the company withdrew from negotiations because it was now talking to the state.  

The meeting ended on a better note but it's rather interesting the Mayor brings these experts and allows them to engage with Jackson's legislators. 

You can't make this up. 

Kingfish note: It gets even better.  The Mayor had a meeting with Congressman Bennie Thompson Thursday morning at 7:15 to discuss the water crisis.  NAACP President Derrick Johnson attended the meeting with the Congressman.  The Mayor said he had to leave after a few minutes because he was going to be on CNN at 8 AM.  Needless to say, the veteran Congressman was not happy and that is putting it mildly, despite their happy faces the next day passing out water.

Is your account of this meeting corrborated by anything other than the one photo you have posted? You use very subjective terms like "chewed out" and "berated". I'd be curious to see for myself how these idiots comported themselves.

Lumumba is horrible but PhD Omari is a complete idiot. I’ve dealt with her before. She’s as dumb as they get. Not qualified except maybe had you your fast food at drive thru window

Word is Senator John Horhn and Antar are trying to privatize the water and get rich. Horhn should be ashamed of his self, trying to take advantage of poor blacks. The company already over Jackson water & sewerage. Antar 10% Horhn 10% Jackson 0%. Credell put the Lumumba & Horhn move in play. Credell and Horhn got Lumumba taking bus station money and spending it at Plantirum that state gave city. Nothing like Democrats that steal.

Did the senators take this crap from these idiots?
I would have walked out. This is beyond corrupt, but that's just our stupid mayor for you.

YES this Mayor does NOT care about the citizens of Jackson or their health! If being on CNN is more important than getting these issues resolved then grow up and act like an adult. These constant temper tantrums of not getting your way are childish and do NOTHING for the people of Jackson. NO city in the UNITED STATES gets a blank check with no questions asked to use any way the Mayor sees fit; especially with 2 years under his belt & zero results! Thank you to those who chose to work & serve people ahead. Of their chance to be on a National News Channel! Shame on the media for showing false narratives of the truth! Please DO NOT Turn this water, trash or sewage back over to JACKSON. We are over hearing about it. Even Piney Woods students stepped up to serve!

What's it going to take to get Chokwe Antar Lumumba to resign as mayor?

Anonymous said...

Antar is a charlatan, a self-worshipper, and a fool. He solicited a few gullible ne’er-do-wells to prop up his long con that he was certain he could pull on Bennie and the rest of us. He banked on the most improbable of eventualities — that just maybe the rubber would never meet the road. It would. It has. He knows it and he knows we know it.

Now it’s pretty much wait and see how long it takes him to wrap his head around his self-implosion. It will occur in fits and starts. And it will be ugly .. his foolish pride will insist upon that. Right now he’s grappling with the very high likelihood that in a matter of days or a few short weeks he will be the butt of the nation’s ridicule and scorn. And, after all, his one true ambition has always been that the far-flung regard him as something he is not and will never be.

"Nobody elected you to shit!" I can't believe I just quoted Kenneth Stokes, but that really says it as far as Omari is concerned.

If Congressman Thompson really cares about local black people, and I believe he does, he needs to speak the truth about Lumumba and his crew. (Or maybe he already did)

One of these days he is going to say some arrogant nonsense and someone higher up the democrat food chain is going to go full Will Smith on him on live TV. And make no mistake he is a punk and will be thoroughly humiliated.

7:13.....the answer is fed prison. Anything short of that will be sold as racism and will fall short. And if Pickett is in the room, you know it's a shakedown. So maybe fed will come sooner than later.

Why would state senators sit there and take that? I find this hard to believe

The mayor is so in over his head it’s not even funny. Even when he tries to play the Boss Tweed corrupt political maestro, he fails miserably.

I can forgive so much in politicians—corruption, bad ideology, etc—just PLEASE be competent. That’s all I ask.

The Empire State Building was constructed in an insanely short period of time through equally insanely corrupt means. But they got it done.

We need someone who can just get shit done. This mayor is a joke.

Chowke is trying to pull a Jussie Smollett on the rest of the Nation.
I say from this point forward, we dub Chowke Antar as:
Jussie Jackson. Right.

So there is a private management company who can hire the 24 employees to run the water plants?


Busy busy busy said...

1. Jokeway’s sister is busy learning water management 101
2. Tate knows not to trust a crook with money
3. Suddenly Jokeway isn’t interested in millions of trash & when there’s now billions of water $
4. Bennie needs to hurry up and get Jokeway appointed to DC position

Chokwe Lumumba and Lori Lightfoot are competing for the crown of worst mayors in America. Of course, Lightfoot is running a city into the ground with a population that is higher than the entire state of Mississippi. But she could always be Mayor of Dagobah in the next Star Wars show.

Imagine knowing you were one of the dumb supporters that actually contributed to Antard's campaign and cheered for this tyrant.

You morons could form a support group with the doofus timber investors to work through the pain of your gullibility.

Enjoy Jackson. You asked for it. You got it.

If you think you're witnessing a shit-show NOW, just wait 'til he runs for (and is elected to) the office of Governor of the state.

I love how trying to privatize the water is an attempt to "get rich" and take advantage of "poor blacks" meanwhile failing to provide those same poor blacks with water is totally fine.

If you care more about the possibility of corruption--which is inevitable--than people getting access to clean water, you are a moron.

6:29 thank you for pointing to the fact that our county commissioners have played a self-serving role in the results of poor government.

You also pointed out another sad truth these days, once brilliant and well educated people are not immune to mental illness or dementia or Alzheimer's. Sadly, these days, the media loves to quote them as political "examples" for both/either party. But, more frightening is that such people have been elected to office or are running for office...even some like Hershel Walker who actually self-diagnoses with the definition of Multiple Personality Disorder (which is very rare) as an excuse for his bad behavior. And, even in the media we have by legal documentation confirmed mentally ill person, Alex Jones. And some of you, for reasons known only to God, believed his paranoic fantasies.

The kindest thing I can think some days about some of those who comment here, is perhaps they suffer from the effects of lead and other contaminants that have leached into MS's drinking water.

county commissioners?

I think we have an out of state comment.

Talked to a Senator that was there. Said it as the dumbest thing he has been a part of. Total incompetence by mayor and staff. Said the mayor is borderline paranoid of image being put in the basement.

9:43 AM, if they really are worried about corruption the mayor is the first person to get rid of.

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.
