Hodge on KCMO 710′s morning show: The good news is we cut the budget 6%, the bad news is JCCC is probably the most openly unethical government in KCMO.

Monday, May 11th, 2009

Johnson County Community College Trustee Benjamin Hodge was interviewed by guest host Jack Cashill on this morning’s Chris Stigall’s KCMO 710 AM Morning Show.  They talked some about the college’s budget, and Hodge said the good news at JCCC is that they’re going to cut the budget by 6%.  Hodge asked listeners to remember JCCC‘s 6% budget cut as they continue to hear other governments complain loudly about much smaller budget cuts, and as they see the federal budget continue to grow.  The JCCC trustee said that the college would not even notice a difference next year as it operates without the dollars being removed from next year’s budget.

But Hodge said the bad news is that JCCC — currently under the leadership of JCCC’s CEO and President Terry Calaway, and Trustee Leaders Shirley Brown-VanArsdale and Lynn Mitchelson – is perhaps the “most openly unethical” government in the Kansas City, MO, metro area.  He explained his use of the term “openly unethical” by saying that officials in most governments attempt to hide their unethical behavior, but “in Johnson County, we give ourselves awards for it.”  They discussed the thousands of dollars that JCCC is spending on legal fees to cover up what Hodge said what should have been considered relatively minor violations of the Kansas Open Meetings Act.  Hodge compared JCCC’s actions surrounding the likely KOMA violations to “getting a speeding ticket, and then abusing government power to attempt to destroy the career of the police officer.”

Cashill and Hodge also discussed the college’s addition of health benefits for the college’s gay employees, and how President calaway and HR committee chairman Mitchelson abused their leadership roles by secretly inserting the benefits without board discussion or even alerting other board members to their actions.  JCCC is the first government body in Kansas to add taxpayer-supported domestic partnership benefits.

About six months ago, veteran pro-life activist Steve Sanborn approached me about documenting the annual March For Life in Washington, D.C.

Sanborn’s original goal was to put a couple of cameras on rooftops and count the marchers. It had long irked him how consciously and corruptly the major media under-reported the people gathered for this January event.

The more we got to talking, the more we realized the value of creating a serious documentary about the March, the first ever high-end, high-def production.

Convinced of the documentary’s potential, I brought in my long time producing partner, Michael Wunsch of Outpost Worldwide, and the actress and pro-life activist, Jennifer O’Neill (below), who would serve as on-camera spokesperson and narrator. (more…)

History Repeats Itself With DHS Smear
April 23, 2009

“The current economic and political climate has some similarities to the 1990s,” so reads a recent DHS report, “when right-wing extremism experienced a resurgence fueled largely by an economic recession, criticism about the outsourcing of jobs and the perceived threat to U.S. power and sovereignty by other foreign powers.” (more…)

More Thought-Policing In Mid-America

Published in – April 30, 2009

In last week’s column, I detailed how an informal cabal that included the local media, Democratic office holders, liberal clergy, and self-described “watchdog” groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League conspired to defame, bankrupt, and even imprison individuals who flouted the liberal orthodoxy in the Heartland, specifically in Kansas and Missouri.
