FEMA Denies Baltimore Request For Disaster Aid To Cover Riot Expenses – Baltimore Mayor Plans To Appeal…

Well, well, well – what do you know, FEMA gets it right.  The taxpayers are spared from having to bail out Baltimore’s inept leadership.   Almost immediately: “the wheels on the bus go whaa – whaa – whaa”…  Up next: “FEMA is racist”.

baltimore mayor faceBALTIMORE – The Federal Emergency Management Agency has denied a state request for disaster aid to cover the costs associated with the rioting and unrest that broke out in Baltimore after the death of Freddie Gray.

W. Craig Fugate, FEMA’s administrator, wrote in a June 12 letter to Gov. Larry Hogan that federal disaster aid was “not appropriate” for such an event.

“Therefore, I must inform you that your request for a major disaster declaration is denied,” Fugate wrote.

Spokeswoman Erin Montgomery said Friday that the Hogan administration “is reviewing FEMA’s response and will make a determination about the appropriate next steps, including a possible appeal.”

[…] Howard Libit, a spokesman for Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, said Friday that the city is working on an appeal.

“We’re told we have 30 days to appeal,” he said. “We’re working with the federal delegation and Obama administration officials to assess what we might do to become eligible for reimbursement.”

Henry J. Raymond, Baltimore’s finance director, said in May that the city was covering the costs from its rainy-day fund but hoped for federal reimbursement of up to 75 percent of the costs. (read more)

      Heh, Maybe Mosby can write the appeal for Blake… I am actually glad that they are not awarding them any money for the disaster they created. However they were operating to create a disaster with the expectation of Federal money. Someone in the administration must have assured them they would get paid. My dollars would be on an Obama override and the FEMA decision only gives Obama a chance to come in as the “hero” to save the day.

      If they do get money it sets a bad precedent as politicians will line up to create their own disaster areas and redirect the money to campaign doners.

Caning with 4-ft rattan sticks and forced labor in a debt prison are far more adaequate ways of treating givers of “space to destroy” vs any alternative available here in the US according to the current laws.

    Well, for the last couple of days she’s been feuding with Gov. Hogan over her attempt to screw the owners of liquor stores that were looted during the riots. She basically told them that in order to receive aid they had to stop selling liquor (and sell groceries) or relocate to another area. The governor strongly disagrees with her attempt to screw them over. Never mind that these liquor stores are legally licensed under grandfathering provision under city ordinances that date back to the 1970’s, and the owners probably have a good lawsuit if they choose to pursue one.

        This is a woman who went from a shoo-in to be re-elected as mayor before the riots to a very vulnerable incumbent who has people considering running against her (which includes her predecessor, Sheila Dixon, who was forced to resign as mayor over improprieties involving gift cards from Best Buy for needy children – and no I’m not making this up). At this point, she has chosen to go Coleman Young (former Mayor of Detroit who used racial identity politics to stay in office) in an attempt to save her political career.

      I doubt it. I think the reason it was denied is because Hogan, a Republican, asked for it. The Dems must punish the people for voting in a Republican.

      Blake will win the appeal and get the money, which she will control. Then she will run for governor next term against Hogan and prattle on about how she accomplished what he couldn’t or wouldn’t because he doesn’t care blah blah.. There is no doubt in my mind that the denial of the FEMA request was all pre-arranged as part of helping her with a political play.

      Does anybody want to give me some odds that the liquor store owners she’s trying to squeeze out aren’t Republicans?

    I am sure she (Ms. Rollin’ Black) thought this out using her “critical Black thought process.”
    FEMA aid is for localities that were impacted by “natural disasters”. Since, in her mind (as well as EVERYONE elses) Blacks ARE a “natural disaster”, she can’t figure out why FEMA denied the request……

    FEMA is racist, no question there…Won’t “help out a Bro”. The city was burned, looted, and rioted upon because 3 incompetent Police Officers, who were racist, had the audacity to arrest a felon. And, on the “orders” of the SA. to boot. That IS a natural occurrence is it not…?

    Sure hope she didn’t spend in excess of “replacement value” thinking an unlimited slush fund was coming her way….Totally Blind sided.

    Nothing like “strong Black women” in charge of an Administration. Instead of getting SH!t done, it becomes a case of Sh!t happens…..And she still has that “deer in the headlights” look……LOL

    Compare Baltimore to Charleston and see the irony. In Baltimore they are condemning 6 people for the death of a black man and they tried to burn the city down, while in Charleston some are offering forgiveness to the white man who killed 9 blacks and so far no destruction of any kind. I am totally impressed by the blacks’ show of respect for the dead, may they rest in peace. I hope they can continue to hold it together.

  21. Dixie, I’ve been thinking about the contrast all day. Among the many, many ironies: it was a White man who killed the Black people; a White police chief who headed the intense investigation; a White woman to spotted and reported the killer to what looked like all-White police departments; a White mayor, who despite his advanced years stayed on top of the entire situation and handled it with grace and intelligence; and a non-Black governor who tied the whole thing up with sensitivity and understanding. The Black citizens have clearly felt the love and appreciated the leadership’s ability to keep order BEFORE anything got started.
    I hope I’m not speaking too soon.

      Plus I don’t think any of the Usual Suspects will encourage it — rioting because some nut job killed a bunch of people does not make the same political statement as rioting over “police brutality.”

    A FEMA payout would be extremely unpopular in Congress. And the president already has serious credibility issues within his own party. All the ‘red state’ constituents, (and a lot of the blue state ones too) would see the yawning fiscal chasm of an endless cycle of constantly rebuilding ghettos, (old or new) whenever the BGI unleashes its maniacal hordes. Recall how the “Great Society” constructs that replaced old working-class neighborhoods, took to become “high-rise ghettos” ? (These headline failures of social engineering eyesores have since been largely torn down.)

    I’m a tad bit confused…

    Baltimore acknowledges that it can afford to pay for the damages itself out of its rainy-day fund, so why are they hitting up FEMA?

    What they’re really asking FEMA to do, then, is replenish their coffers… and since that isn’t what FEMA is for, the city in so many words admits that it plans to work the system and appeal FEMA’s denial with some convoluted way of “becoming eligible for reimbursement” with the help of the Obama administration?

      You are right on target. They have admitted it is to replenish their rainy day fund. The key word in FEMA is Emergency. The fact that they were able to pay for it at all would make them ineligible for the funds. Someone in an earlier comment mentioned that it was denied because it came through a republican governor. I have never heard of an application for assistance coming through anyone but the state, except for the District of Columbia. They are their own little corrupt dynasty. It is an extremely tedious application to make and very few on the local government level would have the expertise, especially a City of Baltimore employee.
