Tim Whalen: The latest Higgins shill




The Higgins power base is starting to crumble. All the king's horses and all the king's men are doing everything they can to keep their 40 year scam on South Buffalo going. Their people are beginning to sweat. Some are even making idle threats to "shut" the blog down.

The patriarch of the big scam on residents is Jim Keane.

Keane, who lives in Florida most of the year on the backs of taxpayers, recently sold his house on Whitfield Ave to move to Orchard Park. He's such an elitist, he can't even "pretend" to live in the neighborhood three months out of the year, anymore. However, he still plans on controlling city politics from the suburbs. Go away already!

It's not too often that Keane and Higgins attempt two anointings in one year, but they have already found their latest shill. They looked no farther than Keane's brother-in-law Tim Whelan. Whelan is the guy who failed his Board of Education Engineer's test, yet was given the job anyway. Who needs to study when you're sister and brother in law are politically connected? It's not like the potential of exploding boilers is dangerous to Buffalo school students or anything.

Here's what Whalen had to say when the Buffalo News asked him about his possible interest in the Common Council seat...

Whalen told The News he is interested but is still thinking about whether to toss his hat in the ring. He said he will consult with some prominent figures in South Buffalo politics — Rep. Brian Higgins, State Sen. Timothy M. Kennedy and his brother-in-law, former county executive candidate James Keane—before making a decision.

In other words, "I'll wait until Brian Higgins and my brother-in-law give me permission to run. Sad and pathetic, but expected.

Whalen has zero qualifications for South District Councilman. If appointed (he could never be elected), he will basically be a paid spokesperson for Higgins, Keane, and the self-proclaimed First Families of South Buffalo. Look for the Council's majority members (none of whom care what goes on in South Buffalo), to appoint Whalen to Mickey Kearns' vacant seat. Keep your eyes specifically on Lovejoy Councilmember Rich Fontana. Fontana is the Council's majority leader. We are hoping he has the decency to do the right thing and pick somebody competent. Anyone but Whalen. If he chooses Whalen, Fontana will hear about it from many in South Buffalo (and we have long memories).

Remember all those slick fliers Higgins sent out on behalf of Chris Fahey? The ones trying to associate Kearns with the Republicans? When Keane and Higgins had Whalen appointed (there's that word again), to the Erie County Legislature, Whalen himself caucused with Chris Collins and the Republicans on the advice of Higgins. He's a career hack/puppet for the South Buffalo thieves. I don't know who I'm supporting yet, but I'll guarantee you it won't be Whalen. Look for the same predictable political hacks on your block to support Whalen. Remember, these are the same scum who owe their first born children to Higgins. Do not trust the people who speak on behalf of Whalen. They represent what's left of Higgins' ever crumbling power base. A bunch of people who make over $100,000/yr in their public sector jobs(most living outside of the city) with the nerve to tell the rest of us who we should support...

  1. These arrogant career political hacks have had their day. High Pants, Frog Face Keane and the rest of these small minded rubes will soon be out of political power and condemned to live out their remaining days in their Orchard Park mansions and Florida condos. High Pants can go back to saving Africa with Bono, and he can continue to stroke his massive ego through trying to impress people with his incorrect Irish-American Gaelic. Frog Face can go back to reminding everyone he is a "Keane" and that translates to royalty, at least in his book.

    These people.....unbelievable! What a bunch of chowder-heads! Is this the best South Buffalo has to offer? Fools such as these?

    How did these clowns get elected to higher office in the first place, much less maintain these positions for all those years? They did absolutely nothing for the average, non-politically active resident of South Buffalo.

    Yet, every St Patrick's Day these phony Irishmen would fly back into Buffalo from their compounds in Florida, dress themselves in green from head to toe, mug for every camera they could find and try to con the rest of us that they were working hard in Washington, Albany, County or City Hall. Then they'd disappear till Primary Day--the real Election Day in heavilly Democratic Western New York, unfortunately. After being re-elected, you wouldn't hear a thing again from them till the next election.

    Meanwhile, South Buffalo lost more and more good paying jobs and skilled workers everyday, while these clowns became concerned with nothing but self-preservation and increasing the size of the public sector with jobs for their family and friends.

    It sounds like I'm exaggerating, but I'm not. That's the saddest part of this tale.

    I for one have had enough of the First Families of South Buffalo, the brainless political hacks who do as their told, the bar room loudmouths who support these crooked politicians and the status quo by bullying dissenters, and most of all these thieving, under-achieving, no-talent local politicians themselve that we have here in the South Buffalo Democratic machine.

    Time to send High Pants and Frog Face packing. They've done enough damage to put us back at least four or five generations in this area.

    Keep on after them, Mr. Blake. I for one am rooting for you! Remember, they're scared of you and this blog. It's obvious. You have them on the ropes.

    Sincerely,

    South Buffalo Joe

  2. JIM KEANE RAN FOR OFFICE YEAR AFTER YEAR AND WON. YOU MIGHT NOT LIKE HIM BUT HE WON FAIRLY. HIS WIFE IS ONE OF THE NICEST PEOPLE YOU COULD EVER MEET AND HIS KIDS ARE SMART AND HARD WORKING. HIS WIFE MARGRET WAS A HARD WORKING FIREFIGHTER THAT WORKED IN THE BUSIEST PARTS OF THE CITY. IF SHE WANTS TO ENJOY HER RETIREMENT IN FLORIDA , GOOD FOR HER.

    1. "JIM KEANE RAN FOR OFFICE YEAR AFTER YEAR AND WON."

      He's 1-3 and that's with party backing. He lost to Jack Kemp(Congress), Dennis Gorski 87'(County Exec.), and Chris Collins(County Exec.)The only election he ever won was city council.He was given a no-show for Hillary Clinton after kissing her ass, then quit after they tried to force him to actually work.

      I don't care where people retire to. However, when they live in Florida and then try to influence city elections, I have a problem with it. It's like a drug kingpin who tries to control his gang from behind bars. I liked Dick Keane, Sr. and his kids. Jim Keane is no good.Big blowhard/phony.

  3. He won "year after year" because hacks like you were ordered to get out and campaign. Secondly, WTF does Frog Face's wife have to do with any of the points being made in the first place? Frog Face, on the other hand, was an incompetant political leader with little talent or intellect. He was a self-centered jerk entirely concerned with his own political preservation. Other than getting a job with the city on the friends and family program, his wife has no role in this argument. Brush up on your logic skills, pal.

  4. APPARENTLY MIKE, YOU HAVE NO CLUE ABOUT TIM WHALEN. HE DID NOT FAIL HIS ENGINEER'S EXAM. AS A MATTER OF FACT, HE PASSED AND HOLDS A CHIEF ENGINEER'S LICENSE. HE HAS PLENTY OF EXPERIENCE AS A FORMER ERIE COUNTY LEGISLATOR. TIM IS NOT RELYING ON TIM KENNEDY OR BRIAN HIGGINS. WHY DONT YOU GO AND INTERVIEW HIM YOURSELF. YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHERE HE LIVES ON MCKINLEY PKWY. YOU SEEM TO BE SO STERN ON WHERE PEOPLE LIVE. GO TO HIS HOUSE AND TALK TO HIM ABOUT HIS CANDIDACY. I AM SURE HE WOULD LOVE TO TALK WITH YOU. IF YOU READ WHAT HE WROTE FOR ARTVOICE HE MADE THE DECISION TO RUN ON HIS OWN MERITS.

    1. He does live in the neighborhood, which I give him credit for. I know Tim Whalen and he knows me. If he wants to talk to me about his candidacy, he should email me or call me like Kevin Overdorf and Matt Fisher, and Patrick Burke already have.

  5. You should talk to Tim Whalen and see what he has to say, instead of talking about him behind his back. You may actually like him.

    1. Everything I wrote on here I would say to his face. This isn't talking behind anyone's back. I know Tim Whalen and I know exactly who is pulling his strings. The same old tired scam artists.

  6. I agree with other posts here, you should talk with Tim. He would be more than willing to sit down with you and discuss the issues. Why disrespect a man who cares about the community? You should talk with him in person and not trash talk him on this blog.

    @ anonymous nameless coward, i am not your pal. Passing a civil service test to get a job and then passing a promotional exam is hardly the friends and family plan.

  8. Who cares who you're backing. In my opinion you officially made yourself look like an idiot by talking up Kearns and writing in 'Mickey Rooney'.

    1. Don't think I talked up Kearns. I tried to educate people on Fahey and the criminals backing him. Mickey is out for Mickey. Everyone knows that. PS: I don't need this blog to officially make myself look like an idiot. Thanks for reading.

  9. I told you, Mr. Blake. The powers that be are reading this blog everyday. They know the voting public of South Buffalo are dedicated followers of this blog too, so the Jigginistas are very, very nervous. You can't be suaded or sidetracked by either shallow peace offerings or vicious personal insults. They can't shut you up no matter how many false rumors they've tried to plant about you. Yes, Mr. Blake, you obviously can not be intimidated by these clowns, and I for one wish to salute you for your selflessness and courage. Remember, you got these blockheads on the ropes. It's obvious by the number of times this brainless dope Whelan has posted on here anonymously, trying to salvage his reputation. Thanks, Mr. Blake, our neighborhood has needed an honest straight-talking forum of free speech like this for a long time now. It's the only way to awaken the vast majority of South Buffalo residents who don't normally take part in the political process. Blogs like yours put democracy back into action. They are the last thing machine bosses like High Pants and his cast of brainless followers want. Blogs like yours mobilizes the sleeping giant of the voting public. It gives a voice to people other than the political hacks and smug members of South Buffalo's First Families. Thanks, Mr. Blake!

  10. What's this I'm hearing that High Pants has been peppering his political speeches lately with quotes from Irish poets William Butler Yeates and James Joyce in Irish Gaelic--and incorrect Irish Gaelic at that.

    STOP!!!!!

    Bobby Kennedy, you are not, pal.

    Will somebody please pull this egomaniac back into reality?

  11. I'll be away from my computer until 3:30PM. Please don't think I'm ignoring anyone's comments. Also, I'm trying to avoid arguments between posters. I don't want everyone to get out of hand.

    High pants ? this is some priceless stuff, peppering political speeches with misquoted gaelic joyce quotes ? Joyce who despised Ireland at that so he did. After working in SB for close to 20 years and attending God's own high school at 601 McKinley (c/o '79) I have to say this blog is like you never left. Keep the rant alive.

  13. Thanks, Sean. They are doing everything in their power to try and discredit me. They started rumors and untruths, which my friends laughed about. They actually went to the S District police. He explained to them that political dissent was not a crime. I get daily threats of violence from anonymous posters. Just another day in S Bflo. You won't always agree with my posts but I hope to keep the rant alive as you say. I liked the way you put it.

    1. Don't know. Haven't worked there in three years, Einstein. And even if I did, I'd still say whatever I feel. These people you refer to are not my representatives. They only represent a select clique anyway. Everyone knows that. Why do you think Fahey got creamed?

  15. With every computer has an ip address. This address subsequently coincides with your home address. It's very easy to locate someone that making threats or making a fool of themselves. With that said update your goddamn blog template for christ sake, the template you use is probably 10 years old.
