Random Thoughts Before the Election

Random thought #1: We need to start an annual awards show for those seeking their 15 minutes of fame by accusing political appointees of decades-old sex crimes.  The best worst accuser would be awarded a Blasey.

The Girl Who Cried Wolf

Random thought #2: Let’s get this straight: President Trump is blamed by the mainstream media and Democrats for motivating anti-Semite Robert Bowers murdering 11 Pittsburgh Jews while they prayed in their synagogue.

The fact that the president’s son-in-law and daughter are Jewish as are three of his grandchildren seems irrelevant to the illogical.

The baseless accusation is also odd considering the president fulfilled a longstanding promise to move our American embassy in Israel to Jersusalem and enjoys widespread support there for his pro-Israel policies. Heck, the Israelis even named a high-speed train station in Old Jersusalem for him.

You see, even Jews in Israel are climbing aboard the Trump train.

Haters Protesting Hate

Random thought #3: Democrat Florida gubernatorial nominee and former Tallahassee mayor Andrew Gillum has spun numerous excuses for his entanglement in a federal corruption probe, illegal acceptance of trips and taking free gifts from an undercover FBI agent.

When all else fails from those trying to hold him accountable, Gillum always falls back on the trusted Democrat anti-Trump card: “You’re a racist.”

An avowed socialist, hopefully this George Soros stooge and race card joker will be “trumped” by Floridian voters who see through his campaign nonsense.

Endorsement Hex?

Random thought #4: Republicans this fall have been running on the booming economy, increased consumer confidence and enforcing our immigration laws.

Democrats are running and whining on agitated resistance, in-your-face confrontations and interrupting thoughtful moments of silence with senseless harangues about American nationalism – in a house of worship.

And that’s just a preview of things to come if Democrats win Nov 6.

Naturally the media proclaims these agitators are merely exercising their free speech rights.  I doubt the media would feel that way if their telecasts were interrupted by MAGA shouting conservatives with bullhorns.

Methinks Thou Doth Protest Too Much

Random thought #5:

Hillary Clinton recently joked that all black men look alike and the mainstream media laughed at her obvious reference to a clichéd old stereotype. Ron DeSantis makes an offhand comment that if elected Florida governor Andrew Gillum would “monkey” things up and DeSantis is labeled a racist, a white nationalist and a bigot.

Think media bias is a figment of conservatives’ imagination?

In addition to the liberals boorish refusal to accept Donald Trump as the legitimately elected President of the United States two years after the election, they apparently are blind to their own hypocrisy.

Buckle Up for More Liberal Angst

Remember the hullabaloo candidate Trump caused in the final presidential debate when he said he might not accept the results of the 2016 presidential election if it was “rigged” against him?

The mainstream media and political left went full-blown Trump Derangement Syndrome, sometimes referred to in the mental health community as Bat Guano Loco.

How ironic is it that the same folks who took umbrage at Trump’s claim about accepting the election results refuse to accept him as a legitimate president two years later?

Not to mention that there really was a plot to rig the election against Trump – followed by Deep State cloak and dagger games to force him out after his inauguration.

Even when they cheated by stacking their liberal deck of lies and deceit and hid their maniacal machinations from the voting public, the left still couldn’t win.

Since that time the left has grown increasingly hostile, mean spirited and nastier than Joy Behar at a Christian prayer meeting laying hands on the president.

This begs the question: what kind of temper tantrum will liberals throw if they fail to regain the House of Representatives? (They can forget about reclaiming the Senate due to their despicable behavior during the Kavanaugh confirmation hearing.)

If Trump and the Republicans beat them again there’ll be enough liberal tears to irrigate the Sahara Desert until mid-century.

The wailing and gnashing of teeth will reach Biblical proportions not seen since Biblical times – or roughly since 2020 Democrat presidential front runners Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders were grade-schoolers.

Win or lose, Democrats have a serious problem best illustrated by the Marvel nemesis Venom. Just like Eddie Brock, the Democrat party has been taken over by a Symbiote form requiring a host body to carry out its nefarious plans.

The open borders/sanctuary cities crowd, Antifa, Black Lives Matter, #MeToo movement and Never Trumpers are the Symbiote life form and the Democrat party  – well, it’s the headless host body.

All these social justice groups have annexed the Democrat Party apparatus and moved it so far left it defies electoral gravity and political commonsense.

If the Dems win the House November 6, Speaker Pelosi (*shudder*) will have to work her Botox injection appointments around corralling the violent mobs her party has encouraged the past two years.

If they lose, the Symbiote will almost certainly ravage the host body and Democrats will become the 21st century version of the Whig party.

The downside for Americans is they’ll be forced to deal with the mess either way.

Will Dr. Blasey Ford Show or Not?

California psychologist and Palo Alto University statistics professor Christine Blasey Ford is scheduled to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday at 10 a.m. that Judge Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her while both were in high school.

Ford’s high school yearbook photo

Statistics are all about probability, so here’s a probable statistic: there’s a very good probability that Dr. Ford doesn’t even show up, let alone testify, at tomorrow’s hearing.

Four reasons why:

First, since initially bringing the charges earlier this month, her story has crumbled faster than an Animal House cookie run over by the Indianapolis Colts offensive line.

Know the saying, “There’s no there, there?” With Dr. Ford’s story, there’s not only no there, there, but there’s also no where, when, or who was present. Her story has more holes than a a Special Forces gun range target.

Second, she’ll be under oath and her testimony will be subject to perjury charges. Not to mention the challenge of presenting as truth long repressed memories brought forward by hypnotherapy – 30 years after the fact.

Brett and Ashley Kavanaugh

Third, if any of this political soap opera is to be believed at all, she never wanted her allegations to go public.  Desperate to slow, delay and obstruct Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation, it was only after the confirmation proceedings were concluding that California Democrat Senator Diane Feinstein went public with the allegations.

It’s one thing to subvert a judicial confirmation by delaying the proceedings with outlandish allegations from afar, but something else entirely to testify under oath before millions on national TV.

Finally, if she does testify, the Democrats risk exposing their filthy deeds in this despicable charade, including who leaked Ford’s allegations to the Washington Post, whether she was asked specifically about Brett Kavanaugh on the polygraph we’re told she passed, and what Democrats promised her to come forward and testify.

If they promised that going public with her story was no big deal, she may want to consider who the real villains are.

Take it to the bank: there’s a better chance that this whole episode blows up in Democrats’ faces than Dr. Christine Blasey Ford testifies.

And if she does testify and tells the truth, complicit Democrats may have more to fear than Judge Kavanaugh does.

Kavanaugh Confirmation Hearing: Day One

EDITOR’S NOTE: Since this article was posted, attorneys for Dr. Christine Blasey-Ford have reneged on their earlier pledge that she would be willing to testify under oath anytime, anywhere about her claims against Judge Brett Kavanaugh.  Regardless, many clowns and other liberal entertainers are sure to keep this confirmation circus going until Judge Kavanaugh is confirmed. 

Based on their pathetic efforts to obstruct the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, who knows what silly sophistry the Dems will exhibit next Monday when the esteemed judge and the “regressive hypnotherapy”-practicing California professor appear before the Senate to address 36-year-old scurrilous charges she raised anonymously two months ago.

Whatever political posturing they display, it’ll be hard for Democrats to outdo the political theatrics and somersaults of stupidity witnessed by millions when Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings began with multiple objections from “Car Mall” Harris, “I Am Spartacus” Booker and  “Klondikebar” Klobuchar.

Immediately after the hearing began, senators demanded one by one the hearing be delayed because, well, climate change or something. This was just like Director of Political Circus Productions Chuck Schumer scripted it.

Senators objected to everything from the vetting process and the number of Kavanaugh papers that weren’t provided to the 42,000 that were provided and the way Kavanaugh parts his hair.

“We cannot possibly move forward, Mr. Chairman, with this hearing,” said Kamala Harris at the top of the proceedings.  Sorry Car Mall, but they can and they did.

When that dog and pony show got old, enter the pink pussy hat parade and other Trump Derangement Syndrome protesters who were arrested one-by-one, but not before collecting their cash bail money from protest organizers. Over 60 protesters were hauled off and arrested in the worst mass case of needed spanking in recent memory.

Also on that first day of confirmation hearing temper tantrums, a fervent anti-Trump doctor almost blew up the Internet when tweeting a photo of Republican legal operative Zina Bash secretly flashing a “white power hand signal” to millions of viewers watching the hearings.

This brief melodrama was later quashed when Bash’s husband alerted the media that his wife was born in Mexico, her mother is Mexican, her father is Jewish, and her grandparents were Holocaust survivors.

Perhaps if the doctor had demonstrated more “patience,” she wouldn’t have committed intelligence malpractice.

Friends, never underestimate the ability of Democrats to obliterate commonsense and basic etiquette when the world is watching.  Hopefully in November voters will put them in a two-year timeout without supper or safe spaces.

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.

Dems Pin Hopes on a Latina Lodestar

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the Latina gift that keeps on giving – to Republicans.

Since upsetting 20-year-incumbent Joe Crowley in New York’s June primary, the avowed Democratic-Socialist has become the darling of progressives and in the words of DNC chair Thomas Perez, the future of the Democrat party.

Wait a sec. President Trump recently said that Maxine Waters is the face of that party, so Ms. Cortez must be the post-face lift face of the Democrat Party.  Regardless, to quote yet another Democrat face: “What difference does it make?”

Since the 28-year-old Latina first came to the nation’s attention, she has demonstrated the political acumen of a 7th-grade social studies student and the oratorical skills of former Vice-President and longtime former Delaware senator “Crazy Uncle” Joe Biden.

For instance, when recently asked by a PBS host about what she meant by the occupation of Palestine, she said this:

Surely her comment about not being a geopolitical expert was self-deprecating humor since she majored in international relations and economics at Boston University.

It must have been an interesting economics class at BC what with all the talk about “no holds barred, Wild West, hyper-capitalism.”

Further demonstrating her grasp of how the economy works, she had this to say about the record low unemployment numbers under Trump.

“The unemployment rate is low because everyone has two jobs. Unemployment is low because people are working 60, 70, 80 hours a week,” Ms. Ocasio-Cortez said during her PBS interview.

Guess we need to revise the bumper sticker that says “My Labrador is Smarter Than Your Honor Roll Student” to read “My Labrador is Smarter Than Your Millennial Grad. ”

And finally there was Alexandria the Great’s recent appearance stumping with that curmudgeonly Vermont socialist Bernie Sanders in Kansas. In the clip the Democrat diva said she and Bernie were there to help flip the state red.

Apparently Boston University offers primary colors art courses in their curriculum, too.

Whatever color Ocasio-Cortez flips, Democrats should know that embracing socialist candidates like her mean the Democrat Party isn’t in Kansas anymore.

There’s No Bias Like Shown Bias

Now that President Trump is on the pinnacle of announcing his second Supreme Court justice in 18 months, all his nominees owe a big thank you to a “couple” dinged in Office of Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s 500-plus page report.

Peter Strozk Mantra – I Didn’t Do It

Why? Thanks to dozens of incriminating text messages between Peter Strozk and Lisa Page demonstrating copious amounts of bias against both candidate Trump and later President Trump, we are expected to believe that the subjectivity of the “twin texting terribles” played no role in their investigation.

Strozk & Page Text Exchange

So what do texts from the FBI’s former paramours have to do with Trump’s Supreme Court nominees?

If law and order “professionals” like Strozk and Page can exhibit such blatant bias without it presumably affecting their work, why can’t Supreme Court nominees be held to a similar standard?

Consider:  Whoever President Trump’s selection is to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, that candidate is sure to be the target of intense interrogations and slanderous scrutiny about their views of Roe vs Wade, the Second Amendment, and the Trump administrations’s zero-tolerance border policy, just to name a few predictable litmus test issues.

But wait! Based on the new liberal standard that law and justice professionals can hold any subjective opinion regarding the target of an investigation, then let the justice confirmation hearings begin.

Think Trump’s justice nominee has a bias against Roe vs Wade? Doesn’t matter because whatever their typed or unspoken opinion, obviously it won’t affect their duties as a legal professional based on the Strozk-Page legal precedent.

What if the nominee has expressed a private opinion on favoring gun rights or the rights of Christian businesses not to participate in gay nuptials based on religious reasons?

That argument is now moot since, under the Strozk-Page standard, such “free speech” musings by a Supreme Court justice certainly wouldn’t affect how they interpret the Constitution and their subsequent rulings on the high court.

To believe that any individual could be so blatantly biased as Strozk, Page and many others in the DOJ and FBI, and that their bias wouldn’t affect their investigation, strains credulity.

Not to mention that that same blistering bias didn’t affect their judgment on Hillary’s illicit use of an private email server, her exposure of national security secrets and destruction of subpoenaed devices – none of that mattered because [“Trump’s] not ever going to be president, right? Right?!”

“No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it.”

Apparently bias, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder – and all those that wallow in the Deep State swamp.

Fresno State Condones Hate Speech

Memo to Fresno State President Joseph Castro and his university:

Your cowardly inaction regarding Professor Randa Jarrar’s spiteful tweets say more about you and your values than it does about free speech.

President Joseph Castro boogies down

As we mentioned in last week’s post about the “tolerant” Ms. Jarrar, the creative writing professor tweeted despicable comments within an hour of former First Lady Barbara Bush’s passing – then doubled down on her hate-filled vile and vitriol.

Castro admitted publicly that while Jarrar’s comments were “insensitive, inappropriate and an embarrassment to the university,” apparently they weren’t insensitive, inappropriate and embarrassing enough to do anything about them.

According to the Washington Post, the university concluded that her cruel comments did not violate any university policies and her disgraceful language was constitutionally protected speech under the First Amendment.

Okay. So what if a conservative professor at Fresno State (or any publicly-funded college campus or university) posted a similar tweet upon the death of Hillary Clinton, or the passing of former First Lady Michelle Obama?

Can you imagine how Castro and the university board would interpret “free speech” under those circumstances?

Randa Jarrar – Fresno State Train Wreck

Reportedly the university’s decision was based in part on the fact that Jarrar was speaking about a public matter as an individual on her personal Twitter account. In other words, her actions weren’t representing the university and therefore, any action taken by the university would have violated her rights of free speech.

We should expect better than weasel logic from a university president.

Thousands of private companies prohibit tasteless free speech from their employees because they won’t tolerate such deplorable behavior – publicly or privately, for two reasons:

First, tasteless comments on social media by employees reflect bad on their employer. That’s bad for business. Secondly, it makes the employee look hateful and deranged – which in turn makes their employer look stupid for hiring them – which is also bad for business.

Actions and language have consequences in the real world. Safe spaces and microaggressions may be popular in the land of ivory towers, but they’re just a fairy tale in the business world.

Martin Luther King, Jr. had a famous dream where Americans of all colors would be judged by the content of their character.

In the case of Fresno State and all those supporting Randa Jarrar’s contemptible rhetoric, that would be hard to do because they have no character.

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.

Omnibusted by Republican Traitors

If Mitch McConnell or Paul Ryan were advising Judas about betrayal, the disciple that sold Jesus out for a mere 30 pieces of silver would have commanded a much higher price for his treachery.

Conservatives, mark down in your history books – 2018 was the year that Good Friday was preceded one week by Black Friday – or maybe it should be called “Red Friday” since it committed taxpayers to billions of dollars in reckless social services spending with a budget that would make the Kremlin proud.

If Chuck and Nancy do a tell-all book on this disastrous bill, they might well call it “Trumping the Art of the Deal.”

Many Trump supporters experienced disbelief, anger and depression faster than a Lamborghini going from 0-60 mph when shortly after midnight March 23, Senate Republicans joined hands with Democrats to pass the second highest budget in U.S. history.

If the president had followed through on his threat hours after the vote to veto Chuck and Nancy’s pirated pork pie, it is unlikely it would have cost him a single loyal supporter.

A veto would have shut down the government and forced Congress to come back from a two-week Easter recess and renegotiate. If Congress chose not to negotiate and managed to override Trump’s veto, congressional Republicans would have owned this disaster themselves.

Not now – Trump’s signature makes him just as culpable as the Republicans who stabbed their constituents in the back – his good intentions regarding the military notwithstanding.

Bottom line: after the president signed what he himself called a “ridiculous” bill numbering 2,232 pages, it may conceivably cost him millions of supporters and done irreparable damage to his brand as a political outsider and consummate negotiator.

No wonder Democrats were smiling so broadly – they got almost everything they wanted (Planned Parenthood funding, sanctuary city funding, firearms restrictions, funding for the New York-New Jersey underground tunnel), plus they got their Republican counterparts to put a 727-sized hole in Trump’s plans for a beautiful border wall.

That’s two walls the Democrats managed to bring down in time for this fall’s 2018 election – the much promised border wall and Trump’s former wall of invincibility.

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.
