Flashback Baltimore Mayor Fled State Corruption

Only three months ago, the Mayor of Baltimore fled the state and essentially went into hiding as the federal government conducted raids relating to her alleged corruption.

As President Donald Trump continues to be called a racist for describing the city of Baltimore, Maryland as an “infested” place full of rats, trash, crime, and corruption, Americans are remembering a recent corruption scandal that saw Baltimore, Maryland Mayor Catherine Pugh, a Democrat, flee the state.

Big League Politics reported in April:

Catherine Pugh, the Democrat mayor of Baltimore has reportedly fled the state of Maryland amid FBI and IRS raids on her home, and her office in City Hall.

“[N]o one has seen the mayor and her own spokesperson doesn’t know where she is even though she’s supposed to be recovering from pneumonia,” according to WJZ13. “However, a source tells WJZ however Pugh was at her home when the raid began, but has since left the state.”

Her attorney reportedly did not reply to a comment request.

Citing health concerns, Pugh took an indefinite leave of absence just as an investigation was opened into her dealings selling children’s books.

Pugh would later resign over the corruption charges, prompting the mainstream media to lament her departure from the state’s political scene.

CNN, for example, called it an “absolutely stunning fall”:

On Thursday, Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh resigned just a few weeks after news broke of a no-bid book deal — via a state agency — for a book she had self-published. Pugh, in the wake of the initial reporting by the Baltimore Sun, had largely disappeared from public view and her resignation was more a matter of when, not if.

For more on Pugh’s fall — and what it says about the city she once led — I reached out to the Sun’s Dan Rodricks. Our conversation, conducted via email and lightly edited for flow, is below.

While President Trump is called racist for describing the city accurately, it is worth nothing that local media agreed with the president publicly in 2016.

Big League Politics reported:

efore the hyper-partisanship set in completely with the fake news media, the Baltimore Sun published an article declaring that Trump is correct about his assertion that Baltimore and other large Democrat-run cities are disaster zones.

The op/ed was written by Sean Kennedy at the Maryland Public Policy Institute in Nov. 2016, shortly after Trump was elected to the White House, admitting the problems with Baltimore that Trump brought up were in fact legitimate.

“Donald J. Trump is known for his hyperbole, but not all of his ideas are a stretch. Our inner cities are a “disaster,” as he said in the final presidential debate — and they should be officially declared so,” Kennedy wrote.

Big League Politics will continue to track and chronicle leftist absurdity related to the city of Baltimore and Democrats’ response to the president.

John Podesta “Refused to Concede” In Democratic Election Wargame While Roleplaying as Joe Biden

Prepping for the real thing?

Published

on

A Democratic election simulation program preparing party elites for possible outcomes of the November presidential election has featured a scenario in which Joe Biden, who was roleplayed by Democratic operative John Podesta, will refuse to concede defeat in the election, according to reporting about the event from the New York Times.

The so-called Transition Integrity Project was created with the idea of preparing Democratic Party elites for four different outcomes of the election. One result of the election simulation wargame involved an electoral college simulation in which President Donald Trump secures a strong electoral vote victory while losing the popular vote to Biden, who was played by the former Clinton operative Podesta.

Podesta refused to concede the presidential election in that scenario, citing what he maintained was voter suppression in Wisconsin and Michigan. Podesta, within the confines of the scenario, convinced the governors of the states to send the votes of pro-Biden electors to the House in an attempt to inaugurate Biden as President, despite losing the states.

In the scenario, the House of Representatives recognized Joe Biden as the legitimate President of the United States, while the executive branch of the federal government and the Senate recognized President Trump as the rightful President.

Perhaps most shockingly, in the roleplay scenario Podesta was impersonating Biden in, the Democrat states of California, Washington, and Oregon openly threatened to secede from the United States in the event that President Trump was sworn in for a second term in office, upping the stakes of the constitutional crisis to the point of a potential Second American Civil War with a beginning similar to the first one.

The roleplay of the event ended when organizers determined the American people would look to the military to resolve the situation.

That the Democratic Party elites  would even maintain such a fundamental rejection of an American election as legitimate shows the danger of the extremist neoliberal party.
