  1. Why is the new downtown IU medical school building at 515 Walnut Street owned by an LLC located at 5000 Meridian Blvd in Franklin, TN?

    • mjkopechne

      We have no idea.

      The taxpayers of Evansville invested around $50 million dollars of our hard earned tax dollars for the downtown Medical School project and $30 million dollars towards the new downtown Doubletree Hotel. It’s important to point out that the buildings and the property of both public works projects are owned by groups from out of the area.

      We can’t find any documentation if the individuals or groups that own the above buildings and properties paid anything the city in order to take legal ownership of the above properties.

      We have been harping about this issue for over two years and no one could give us one reasonable explanation for why the Mayor invested our hard earned tax dollars in the above properties without getting a return on our investments?

      We also feel that the Evansville City Council should also be held accountable for the above transactions.

      We hope that this issue will emerge as a major re-election issue for the masses to discuss.

      We also blame members of the local mainstream media for letting the above financial transactions go unchecked.


      • Admin, This is a huge story. Can it be possible that $80 million of taxpayer money went into 2 projects that are now owned by out-of-state companies?

  2. “Broaddrick: FBI Probe Ford Allegation? Then ‘Investigate My RAPE Allegations’ Against Clinton”

    “CNSNews.com) — Commenting on Christine Blasey Ford’s allegation that Brett Kavanaugh assaulted her at a beer party some 36 years ago and that the FBI must investigate the matter now before she will testify about the supposed incident, Juanita Broaddrick tweeted that if the FBI goes back that far then it must also “investigate my RAPE allegations against Bill Clinton, too.”

    “If you want the FBI to go back that far @HillaryClinton @MSNBC to investigate Ford’s allegations …. let’s investigate my RAPE allegations against Bill Clinton, too. Seems only fair,” Broaddrick tweeted on Sept. 18.

    Juanita Broaddrick, a retired nursing home administrator, has long maintained that Bill Clinton, when he was the Arkansas Attorney General, raped her — a “forcible, brutal rape” — in a hotel room in Little Rock, Ark., on April 25, 1978. At the time, Broaddrick was 35, Clinton was 31.

    Clinton first met Broaddrick earlier that year during his 1978 gubernatorial campaign. Broaddrick wanted to volunteer for the campaign and Clinton invited her to stop by campaign headquarters in Little Rock. While in Little Rock for a nursing home conference, Broaddrick called the campaign office and Clinton said they should meet in the coffee shop at her hotel, the Camelot Hotel. Once there, however, Clinton suggested they have the coffee in her room to avoid reporters.

    Once in the room, according to Broaddrick, Clinton chatted about some policy issues, then he forcibly kissed her. She pushed him away, told him she was married, and that she was not interested in him.

    As Broaddrick explained in an interview with NBC Dateline on Feb. 24, 1999, “Then he tries to kiss me again. And the second time he tries to kiss me he starts biting my lip … He starts to, um, bite on my top lip and I tried to pull away from him. And then he forces me down on the bed. And I just was very frightened, and I tried to get away from him and I told him ‘No,’ that I didn’t want this to happen but he wouldn’t listen to me.”

    “It was a real panicky, panicky situation,” she said. “I was even to the point where I was getting very noisy, you know, yelling to ‘Please stop.’ And that’s when he pressed down on my right shoulder and he would bite my lip. … When everything was over with, he got up and straightened himself, and I was crying at the moment and he walks to the door, and calmly puts on his sunglasses. And before he goes out the door he says, ‘You better get some ice on that.’ And he turned and went out the door.”


  3. “Crooked Hillary just won’t slither away”

    “On the September 18, 2018 Rachel Maddow show, Hillary warned us that Trump will “wholesale fire people” after the November 2018 elections.

    Hillary, who “forgets” anything that contradicts truth and reality, must have forgotten that she fired the White House travel office so she could give the business to her pals. The White House memo that implicates her includes the following:

    Mr. Watkins wrote that “we both know that there would be hell to pay if we failed to take swift and decisive action in conformity with the First Lady’s wishes.”

    Hillary also “forgot” that during her co-presidency, she and Bill fired all 93 U.S. attorneys in one day. Jeff Sessions was one of those fired by Janet Reno….

    “Hillary, who spent her career covering up the sexual misconduct of her husband, Bill, and the rape of Juanita Broaddrick, now lectures us on investigating charges of sexual misconduct. She sicced James Carville to say about Paula Jones, “If you drag a hundred-dollar bill through a trailer park, you never know what you’ll find.”

    She called Gennifer Flowers trailer trash. She called Monica Lewinsky a narcissistic loon. She smeared a twelve-year-old girl when she defended the girl’s rapist. She referred to Bill’s accusers as a bimbo eruption. She threatened Juanita Broaddrick. She said she would crucify Gennifer Flowers in cross-exam. She said they had to destroy the story of another accuser.

    Rachel Maddow forgot to ask Hillary about these inconvenient facts.

    Kenneth Starr did not do his job to indict Hillary for perjury. Starr said he drafted an indictment with a prosecution memo to indict Hillary for perjury because she answered, “I don’t know, or I don’t remember” over one hundred times during her deposition.

    Had Starr done his job, we would have been spared Senator Hillary, secretary of state Hillary, Benghazi, the sale of 20% of our uranium to Russia, and most importantly the Hillary email scandal with the coverup by the Obama FBI and DOJ that included the sabotage of the Trump campaign and presidency.

    Simply put, Hillary has no shame, no conscience. She has poisoned American politics and culture.”


  4. You do know, that Trump said this promise, in plain English words:

    ““I will build the best wall, the biggest, the strongest, not penetrable, they won’t be crawling over it, like giving it a little jump and they’re over the wall, it costs us trillions. And I’ll have Mexico pay for the wall. Because Mexico is screwing us so badly.”

    Will JoeBiden please explain to us why he tolerates this lie and broken promise from Donald Trump?
