A Bridge to Somewhere
New International Trade Crossing and The Kilpatrick Files
Published: April 17, 2013
The other hero is a retired Free Press investigative reporter and blogger, Joel Thurtell, who first brought this story to my attention in 2008, after he discovered Moroun had seized portions of a city park and posted phony “Homeland Security” no trespassing signs.
When Thurtell went there, a shotgun-toting Moroun goon drove him away. The reporter posted pictures and a story. Soon after, I wrote about this. Eventually, the “mainstream media” started to.
It isn’t over until it’s over. Expect more dirty tricks till, someday, they close the lid on Matty.
But there really will be a new bridge.
The Kilpatrick Files:
Pay and I’ll Believe
In Case You Missed It: Last week we learned that Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick, the former congresswoman and mother of felonious ex-mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, is going to be paid $20,000 to sit on her behind for five days and listen to “evidence” about the existence of extraterrestrial life on earth.
This is being sponsored by a mysterious character named Stephen Bassett, who lists his profession as “UFO lobbyist,” and is apparently making a movie about the aliens he is convinced are among us. He is paying five former congresspersons to sit and listen to people talk flying saucers for five days.
They don’t have to do any real work or write a report; he apparently just wants to use this as B-roll for the movie.
Now, if I were in the least bit snarky or anything but the sweet, earnest boy I am, I might speculate that any woman who slept with Bernard Kilpatrick and gave birth to Kwame might well know something about strange life forms.
On the other hand, it may just be that she wants to take her mind off their impending sentencings from their recent felony convictions. One thing is clear, however: The Kilpatrick clan’s penchant for chasing down any loose buck hasn’t changed a bit.
