Raimondo blows off Bristol: first Governor in history of Rhode Island to skip parade

  


God save the Queena. Governor Raimondo made a loud statement by becoming the first Rhode Island Governor to blow off the Bristol July 4, Parade. Sources say the state congressional delegation were shocked Raimondo chose to skip the country's longest running parade because "she is tired of getting booed" in Bristol along the parade route.



Seth, Sheldon, Jack, Jim, David. Who is missing?


 Parade organizers usually have to police the number of politicians that want to be part of the parade, and were upset Raimondo skipped it.  Raimondo marched last year along with her son while gearing up for her November reelection.  One parade source mentioned that even Gov. Linc Chafee always marched in Bristol despite his low poll numbers.



the Queena


 Raimondo skipping Bristol comes on the heels of her controversy to not light the State House dome red,white, and blue during the week leading up to July 4. Raimondo sources have indicated Governor Raimondo considers the American flag "divisive" and understands the position of Nike. Raimondo is said to be tired of the "whole Rhode Island thing" and hopes to get an appointment in a new Democrat White House administration.

Update: Raimondo caves to public pressure and lights Rhode Island State House in red,white and blue!

 
state house July 4, after public pressure



No red, white and blue July 3,

 

The Colin Kapernick effect has hit Rhode Island. In order to avoid "a racist controversy" Governor Gina Raimondo had refused to have the State House lit up for July 4, for fear it would "look racist." The State House has been lit up in various colors all year to celebrate Black Pride, Gay Pride, Abortion rights, and National immigrant day, but Raimondo had refused to have the Red, White , and Blue around the dome. One source said Raimondo caved to public pressure about the lighting. 




The Governor feels the American Flag makes many people "uncomfortable" and feels the flag is "divisive." The Governor has also refused to march in the 2019 Bristol July 4, parade.

 He ain't heavy, he's my brudda. Steven Marrapese has been released from the ACI and went on a Facebook rant May 22,  where he implicated his brother Michael in the March 13, 2019 murder of former girlfriend Lauren Ise. 


Lauren Ise

Ise was found brutally tortured and murdered in her Cranston apartment and police have charged her former boyfriend Michael Marrapese with the murder. Steven Marrapese writes his brother Mike had "been up for a week using none stop"(drugs) when he committed the brutal murder. One Facebook friend tries to defend Michael Marrapese saying he doesn't believe the story on www.depetro.com (  warning: graphic details. )where the graphic details of the murder were revealed including removing of her eyes and writing in blood on the walls at the murder scene.  Steven confirms the details are true. He wrote " nope that part is true im not defending him also it was wrong. He still cant believe what he has done and it(guilt) is eating him up." Wow.  


no sex, he just killed her.



The video below was posted on Facebook and show the Marrapese brothers arguing with Cranston police outside the apartment prior to the murder of Lauren Ise.

Raimondo hints at Presidential run and says people of Rhode Island are "with her"

2024?


  Who cares the state is a mess? In a weekend interview on ch6 Governor Gina Raimondo hints that she is "not running for President  next year" but open to the idea in 2024. 



Raimondo, the second least popular Governor in the country, appears delusional that she has turned Rhode Island into a success story and that her job seems almost done. Three of the top four cities in Rhode Island are teetering on bankruptcy and the state budget is over $10 billion dollars. Raimondo also says the people " are with her but may not like her." 



Under Raimondo the state education system is worse and she is on her second education commish who seems to have been fooled into taking the job. Raimondo has also further cemented her legacy by allowing the unions to take over the state and push reform out the window. Under Gina Raimondo, taxes continue to rise while services get worse and worse. Graduates of local colleges don't even pretend to look for a career locally and instead take the train up to Boston. The Wall Street Journal and Providence Journal have both turned on "the gov" after years of singing her praises. 



The fact is Raimondo simply does not even care anymore of attempting to move the state forward but instead just wants to cultivate allies in the Democrat party to move HER political career forward. Raimondo would rather try to spin the facts instead of making real progress. President Raimondo?  She would not even win her home state. Listen to the John DePetro Radio Show.

Is Raimondo worse than Chafee?

 

 

A few years ago it did not seem possible Rhode Island would find a Governor worse than Linc Chafee but Governor Raimondo has brought new meaning to the phrase "hold my beer" (perhaps a Gansett) while becoming a walking/ talking nightmare who seems hell bent on destroying the remains of the biggest little. Only four months into her second term and Raimondo has dwarfed into some kind of Randi Weingarten union hack. Sources claim Raimondo wants to mend fences with the unions over the 2011 pension reform and has decided to "open the vault" for the unions who make their home on Smith Hill. 


the 2nd worst


Sources also say her fellow Democrat Governors were shocked that Raimondo (who touted her 53% mandate win in November to win the National Democrat Governors Chairperson seat) has fallen to a 40% approval rating four months later. Huh?  Much like an athlete who shrinks when they stop using steroids, the real Gina numbers demonstrate how she stole the November state election with fraud mail ballots. Next door, Governor Charlie Baker has remained almost double Raimondo in both approval rating and % wins in elections. The unions are out of control pushing insane bills that no reasonable elected leader would support. 


48 out of 50



Meanwhile, the cities of Providence, Warwick, Pawtucket are all on the verge of bankruptcy. People are leaving the state in droves with no jobs or wealth coming in and an economic slowdown is coming. Raimondo seems to be whistling while the Titanic approaches the iceberg. State spending and hiring continues at an obscene pace while gambling revenues are way off along without any form of fiscal responsibility. The inmates are truly running the asylum. Worse than Chafee? Yup.

Can Providence be saved?

 


The city of Providence has now entered dangerous territory where the threat of bankruptcy looms like a storm in the distance. Providence Mayor Elorza admits the city will run out of money while the illegals continue to flood in and the unions contracts cripple the city. Providence has insane property taxes and businesses continue to flee. 



Every corner has panhandlers and homeless drug addicts roam Kennedy plaza. Illegals aliens dominate the city landscape while crime and high profile acts of violence have become common place. Mayor Elorza remains asleep at the switch insisting all is well while the schools crumble and the street gangs rumble. Property values in Providence continue to decline with high taxes and terrible city services. 




The city of Providence continues to hire friends and family while the pension liability and health care costs rocket to unsustainable heights. Where does this end? Listen to the John DePetro Radio show for the latest.

Should President Trump stop illegals from invading Rhode Island?

 
President Trump






As a crisis develops at our southern border, Rhode Island gears up for more illegals trying to enter the state. Governor Gina Raimondo has made it clear all people are welcome to come to the state regardless of their immigration status. 



worst governor ever


Raimondo keeps signing bills to explode the spending and budget to a record $10 billion dollars with residents  expected to pick up the cost of all the illegals. President Trump as identified the Raimondo administration as one of the worst offenders of violating Federal immigration law. Raimondo and Mayor Elorza have invited all illegals detained at the border to come to live in Rhode Island.



 Many cities and towns are on the verge of bankruptcy and now the cost of illegals on welfare could push many over the brink. Where does it end? Listen to the John DePetro Show for the latest.
