Citizens are Pawns in Immigration Chess

The body of 20-year-old University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts was found August 21 in a remote Iowa cornfield following a month-long search.

The Democrats don’t realize it yet, but since that tragic discovery, their chances of winning this November succumbed in that same field where Mollie Tibbetts’ body was covered over by corn leaves.

Enough is enough.

I can hear the Democrat whining now: “The Republicans are politicizing Mollie Tibbetts’ death. Have they no shame?”

The Republicans aren’t politicizing the senseless tragedy of Mollie Tibbetts, but Democrats and progressives are politicizing the policies that got her killed. The Dems are telling everyone that will listen that they stand for open borders, amnesty and the elimination of ICE.

When 24-year-old illegal immigrant Cristhian Bahena Rivera was charged with Mollie’s murder the same day after leading authorities to her body, America got a sneak peek at America’s future if the Dems return to power.

An illustrative, stark sneak peek less than 80 days before the mid-term elections.

Republicans and Democrats deserve equal blame for our current patchwork quilt of insane border enforcement policies, but it’s the Democrat party alone who is now demanding open borders and generous amnesty policies.

As the citizen victim count rises and yet another innocent American is marked as a casualty of our shortsighted open borders policy, it’s becoming more and more apparent that the Democrat party values open borders and unfettered immigration more than they do the safety of Americans.

Presumably Democrats would prefer achieving unrestricted immigration without the mess of involuntary casualties, but what the heck – you can’t make an omelette without breaking a few eggs, right? If a ballooning body count of a few dead Americans is the price for replacing their dwindling base of voters, it’s a price Democrats are obviously willing to pay.

Got a problem with that? Then you’re a racist and xenophobe and should be deported yourself.

The Constitution says two of the federal government’s most important responsibilities are securing the nation’s borders and protecting the citizenry.

The heartbreaking death of Mollie Tibbetts is just another example of how they are failing to do either.

Thanks for reading Dean Riffs. Welcome to those who love American liberty, free enterprise, and who believe God has blessed our country. For those who believe in open borders, safe spaces, and who think free speech is hate speech, move on – there’s nothing here for you to see.

Internet Timeout: Connect with God

Psalm 77:11-12 (NIV)  I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago. I will meditate on all your works and consider all your mighty deeds.

It’s a scene frequently seen in public.  Adults sitting wordlessly together, reading and pecking away on their smart phones.

At one restaurant table I recently saw a young girl, maybe 9 or 10 years of age, sitting silent and bored while three adults were immersed in their smart phones, ignoring her and each other.

It always amazes me to see people go about their lives oblivious to life around them because they’re so absorbed with the inanimate device in their hand.

I wonder if this is what God experiences when Christians fail to take time for prayer and Bible reading?

We are so busy liking, tweeting, and pinning emoticons, memes and selfies that we fail to appreciate the wonders of the present and the beauty surrounding us.  Even worse, we waste so much precious time on trivialities rather than taking a few minutes of every day in prayer and meditation.

When the disciples asked Jesus why he spoke to the people in parables, he said, “The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them.” He continued, “Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand.”

Smart phone technology is fantastic and offers a terrific way of sharing the Word, but like TV and radio, it often is a mindless distraction that steals our time and attention from important things like prayer and Bible reading.

II Tiimothy 2:15 (KJV) says, “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workmen that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividng the Word of truth.”

Today why not take a break from the Internet and take a few minutes to connect with God?

That Sucking Sound is D.C. Swamp Draining

Do you hear that? Listen closely. Do you hear it now?

Slowly but surely, President Donald Trump is fulfilling yet another campaign promise. He’s draining the swamp of its swamp creatures and parasitic power suckers.

Exhibit A: On August 13 the public learned that Peter Strozk, the former FBI counterintelligence agent, texting fiend and wife cheater, had been dismissed the Friday before.

FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich overturned an earlier decision by the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility (a misnomer if I ever heard one) to allow Strozk continued employment with the FBI after a 60-day suspension.

A mere 60-day suspension for falsifying charges against a presidential candidate and scheming to overthrow a duly elected president would be the equivalent of taking away a teenager’s car keys and Internet privileges for bombing their school.

Strozk’s attorney warned that his client’s termination “should be deeply troubling to all Americans.”

Yeah, right.  I’ve been sleeping like a baby all week knowing that the smug and snarky Strozk was getting his comeuppance – with the promise of more to come.

Exhibit B: On August 15 White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee-Sanders read a statement from the president announcing he was revoking the security clearance of former CIA director John Brennan.

Brennan was a disastrous CIA director with a security clearance.  If his “trumped” up Russian collusion narrative was true, why didn’t he stop it? Because it wasn’t. That makes him a liar rather than incompetent, but either way this guy shouldn’t be within 10 miles of classified information.

Naturally MSM types immediately commenced with their usual histrionics: “Trump’s suppressing free speech;” “he’s punishing his critics;” “he’s working from an enemies list,” and a personal favorite – “what he’s doing is Nixonian.”

If only the Deep State’s efforts to illegally influence an election, and weaponize government agencies in order to unjustly frame a duly elected president was as quaint as Watergate.

What the Deep State cabal has been doing the past two years makes the Watergate burglary look Rockwellian by comparison.

Progressive media types say Trump has assumed dictatorial powers by revoking Brennan’s security clearance, but Huckabee-Sanders said the president has a constitutional responsibility to protect classified information – hence Brennan’s firing was legitimate.

But wait…it gets better.

Washington’s “Steel Magnolia” press secretary added that several other former and current Obama administration officials are being considered for having their clearances revoked: James Clapper, James Comey, Susan Rice, Lisa Page, Bruce Ohr and others.

If the media thinks a few Obamaites losing their security clearances, and others being demoted and terminated is the end of this sordid D.C. soap opera, they need to stay tuned…this show is only getting started.

Protesters Perform Free Broadway Show

The adage “The show must go on” is often associated with the theater, but it’s origins actually go back to 19th century circuses.

Knowing that, the adage is still appropriate considering the recent protest circus sponsored by Rosie O’Donnell and her Broadway show troupe of progressive malcontents.

On August 6 Rosie and a horde of Broadway stars clustered in Lafayette Park across from the White House and protested President Trump and his policies – in song.

If those witnessing the event were hoping to hear protest classics such as “We Have Overcome,” “Revolution” or “This Land is Your Land,” they left sadly disappointed.  Instead the protest featured show tunes from Les Miserables and The Sound of Music.

Nothing says we hate Trump like “Climb Every Mountain” and “Do You Hear the People Sing.”

Inspired by #KremlinAnnex, an ongoing series of grassroots Trump protests in response to Trump’s meeting with Vladimir Putin last month, O’Donnell thought it would be clever to fill a bus full of Broadway performers and protest the president by serenading the White House.

All that was missing was Robert Mueller’s team sniffing around #KremlinAnnex for Russian collusion, while nonchalantly mingling with protesters wearing  (I’m not kidding) T-Rex and shark costumes.

That’s not Broadway, it’s theater of the absurd.

In case those in attendance missed the gravity of the protest/musical, Rosie said this:

“Where we are as a nation, we have now till November to see whether or not democracy is going to survive.”

Note to Rosie: If America can survive pretentious protesters like you and musical company members from Hamilton and The Phantom of the Opera lecturing voters about what a liar and traitor our president is, it can survive anything.

To recap: a busload of Broadway performers, led by Queen of Never Trumpers Rosie O’Donnell, chose to protest a president who wasn’t there, charging him with crimes he never committed (treason), by singing tunes from classic Broadway shows, while accompanied by anonymous people in silly costumes.

Just another case of Trump Derangement Syndrome, but at least one you can dance to.

Straw Poll: Seattle’s Straw Ban Sucks

Was Seattle’s goofy effort to ban plastic straws and utensils July 1 the last straw for commonsense?

Is banning the durable plastic straw the infamous straw that broke the camel’s back?

Will July 1, 2018 be forever known as Seattle Slew Plastic Straws Day?

Of all the problems America faces (illegal immigration, terrorist threats and Antifa whiners), Seattle is the first major city to go all in on combating…plastic.

With the mid-term elections less than 100 days away, the left is literally grasping at straws when it comes to addressing serious issues Americans care about.

While cities like San Francisco, Portland and Seattle adopt sanctuary city status and subsidize homelessness, all these progressive utopian cities are also confronting disgusting “byproduct” issues like public urination and disposal of #2 droppings.

Meanwhile, Seattle’s 5,000-plus restaurants are threatened with a $250 fine for providing patrons with a hygienic-friendly, plastic straw or eating utensil.

And that was after more than 200 Seattle eateries voluntarily adopted the ban last year.

Imagine dining in The Emerald City but having to sidestep syringes, urine puddles and human feces to get to a restaurant. If that doesn’t whet your appetite, after checking the bottom of your shoes and once seated, you are then denied a plastic straw because Seattle views them as what? An environmental health hazard.

Happily I don’t live in Seattle, but if I did they’d have to pry my plastic spork out of my cold, dead fingers.

I live in Indiana where plastic straws are not on the endangered products list, but where the nation’s only paper straw manufacturer is located in the state’s second largest city, Fort Wayne.  And Aardvark Straws is enjoying unprecedented growth thanks to plastic-phobic cities like Seattle and Malibu, California.

So three cheers from the Heartland for progressivism! Your paper straws are what stirs our free market drink.
