Missouri Rural Crisis Center is a Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing

August 22nd, 2018 by mopns ·

Something suspicious is popping up around Rural Missouri: The Missouri Rural Crisis Center and its “feel good” messages about farming.

The crooked motives of this organization are not as clear as they lead us to believe.  Instead, the Missouri Rural Crisis Center (MRCC) is striving to cripple the agriculture industry as we know it.

The MRCC wants people to support the organization by sharing concerns for family farms and the struggles in rural areas.  What’s hidden in their opening statements is their desire to change the rural values and conservative principles making our state such a great place to live and work.

Farmers and ranchers are known for their stewardship and care for the land and animals they work with on a daily basis.  However, the MRCC vilifies farmers who provide three square meals each the rest of the country.

MRCC’s funding is a telltale sign of whom this organization is actually representing.  With funding from the owners of Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream (who are known for their socialist ambitions), Gorge Soros’ Tides Foundation, and Mark Zuckerberg’s Silicon Valley Community Foundation, it is obvious these dollars don’t come from people who understand rural Missouri.

If you’re serving as a county commissioner in a rural area, be prepared for this organization to knock on your office door.

However, the people of rural Missouri are waking up to the MRCC. This group tries to mimic our loyal agriculture groups, when they are really trying to sink their teeth into rural Missouri by flipping policies upside down.  They are a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

Don’t be fooled.  The Missouri Rural Crisis Center supports the expansion of Medicaid and employs a former community organizer who worked for Planned Parenthood in the past.  These are not the values of the rural Missourians that you and I hold dear.

To Missouri’s legislators and leaders in the agriculture community, We hope you will step up and unmask this wolf prowling around our state.  This organization wants to send Missouri’s vital agriculture industry back a century and slander the farmers who sacrifice so much to provide food for the masses.

To show our support for the agriculture industry, we need give the boot to the Missouri Rural Crisis Center and replace their voice with groups that actually represent real farmers and their interests.

In the field of Election Administrators, Paul DeGregorio is renowned worldwide for his work and knowledge in elections. President George W. Bush appointed DeGregorio to the United States Election Assistance Commission. We can think of no person whose endorsement carries more weight than Paul’s for the position of Director of Elections.

Connects the Dots: Conspiracy Against Governor Coming Into Focus Part 2

May 17th, 2018 by MOPNS Editor ·

A St. Louis television news station ran a story this week called “Follow the money trail behind the Greitens’ invasion of privacy case.” Here’s an excerpt from this very enlightening piece:

KPLR11.com:

Fox 2 requested a budget breakdown from the state. It shows more than $685,000 went to lawyers and consultants. “This has been going on for decades,” said Jason Crowell, a Missouri Housing Development Commission board member, appointed by Governor Greitens to change it. Crowell said he wants to “…get reforms so that every dollar that`s allocated for Sr. housing and low-income housing – actually goes to that.” Crowell and reporter Chris Hayes stood in front of one of those projects in Cape Girardeau. “Altogether, per apartment unit, (taxpayers paid) $376,000,” Crowell said. That’s per apartment. “And I’m telling you, as someone who’s volunteered for Habitat for Humanity, I could build almost four Habitat Humanity Homes in Cape for what we spent on one apartment unit.” Read more…

Now if you reread our post from last week regarding Low Income Housing Tax Credits, the dots seem to be really connecting!

Video Connects the Dots: Conspiracy Against Governor Coming Into Focus

Supporters of Governor of Eric Greitens have claimed that the “witch hunt” indictment by a partisan Democratic prosecutor is much deeper than that but instead is an orchestrated effort by powerful forces who want to keep the Low Income Housing tax Credit program (LIHTC) as a developer’s slush fund for wealthy interests. Is this a fantasy or wishful thanking to prop up a scandal plagued governor who seems to be on his way out? Maybe or maybe not.

One question we have is why is Rep. Stacey Newman’s stepson, Andrew Newman, who works for this firm which is owned by Tom Hillman seemingly buddy buddy in this video with attorney Al Watkins? Hillman’s company Lewis & Clark Real Estate “Partner[s] with developers to create great communities. We provide equity capital to high performers innovators in real estate. Lewis & Clark Real Estate and the following partners maximize risk-adjusted returns via investments in distinct real estate assets and operating businesses.”

Greitens Defense Team Say Additional $20k Paid to Ex Husband’s Attorney

May 7th, 2018 by mopns_admin ·

Has anyone seen the Missouri Times publisher  and This week in Missouri Politics host Scott “The Bag Man” Faughn lately? Word on the street is Faughn is in hiding to avoid being served a subpoena to testify in front of the House committee investigating the Governor.

Al Watkins, the attorney for the ex-husband, has previously said that two $50,000 payments showed up at his office in January for the ex-husband’s defense. He identified Missouri Times publisher Scott Faughn as the man who delivered one of the $50,000 payments. A courier delivered the other. At a court hearing Monday, defense attorney Jim Martin said Watkins testified in a deposition that Faughn made two additional $10,000 payments. It wasn’t clear whether those payments also were for the ex-husband’s legal representation. Watkins declined comment. An email message left with Faughn was not returned. Read more…
