CCR 06-26-16 Dylan's Opus

the   Controversial  Committee   Report
“We don’t raise sacred cows...we just butcher them.”

"Dylan’s Opus"

   No, dear readers, the CCR has not ceased publication, been run out of town, or assigned a court date…replete with gag order.  The primary reason for a scant number of reports lately is due to one factor…Dylan Westie.

   Yes, Dylan Westie, Executive editor/Part-time wordsmith and Social Media Troll for the CCR, has been on summer hiatus!  He has been attending to his "charity work" of assisting fellow under appreciated tax payers and working on his personal tome of self-help improvement for humans…especially those of voting age.

   For probably the next three weeks, Dylan will be totally immersed in his "charity" obligation, so reports of significance and enlightenment might be scarce.  However, he does have moles assigned to keep track of: QueenB VDs pre-mayoral campaign photo ops; number of times QueenB VD flips her mane in a council work session; talking points blathered by her Chief of Staff, Pet Rock LaMorgese; and all her speaking engagement blathering — now that the ‘clock kid’ is returning to Irving for a vacation — to Red Meat TEA-carnivore sycophants. 

   For the interim, staff of the CCR has been given approval to release a draft copy of the  Introduction to Dylan’s gonna-be-published-one-day opus.  Staff is currently working on having him provide one or two of the completed chapters for later CCR reports. 

   So, stay tuned.

Dylan’s Ruffings
(A canine guide to bliss)
(Everything you wanted to tell a human, but were afraid to bark)
(You can eat it…even if it smells bad)

INTRODUCTION

     If you can believe 3,000 monkeys, with typewriters, could eventually produce the works of the Great Bard, William Shakespeare, then you just have to believe a West Highland White Terrier (Westie for short) could write this tome.  And without being self-serving, you will find that I have accomplished this feat without benefit of extra snacks, long walks, or missed grooming appointments.  However, just don’t talk to me about sore paws though.

     With that out of the way, let’s get down to the basics.  One of my favorite authors, Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., had a saying which fits what this book tends to reflect.  He was on the mark when he stated: “Life is no way to treat an animal.”  In other words, life is tough.  Life is not fair.  And more often than not, coping with the daily grind can even make fleas jump off a fluffy coat of fur.

   While Vonnegut probably didn’t have dogs in mind, it is plain to see if humans had the native intelligence of canines, many of the world’s problems could be solved.  Sure, this is deep thinking for a dog.  But, not as deep as it takes to bury a bone in the backyard.  

     Just look at all these ramblings in this publication realistically. 

   Who wags their rear each time they are paid a little attention, or just glad to see you...a dog.  Who will serve as your protector against intruders, muggers or squirrels...a dog. Who never argues about money or the extreme purchase price of a purse...a dog.  

   In essence, life is very tough, but the ability to sail through with as few dings, dents or carpet piles (not the manufactured type of pile) as possible is to have an understanding dog in your family.

     One thing we canines know for sure is the definition of marriage, happiness and understanding the human condition.  And to be really simple about it, marriage, like politics, is: The ultimate compromise.  And to a dog, compromise means giving up something in order to gain something.  

   Compromise is similar to tugging on a towel.  You humans pull on one end and we pull on the other.  We both enjoy the exercise until one or the other attempts to be sneaky and grab a little father up on the towel to the disadvantage of the other.  That’s not compromising…that’s being deceitful.

     The claim that this book can heal marriages, make partners more appreciative of each other, resolve the egocentricity of politicos, or even remove ugly carpet stains is not without merit.  After all, when the canine factor is added to any discussion or argument, the outcome is always positive.  Unless the subject is chasing squirrels.

     A primary side benefit to all this canine insight is that: You will no longer need to obtain an Oprah fix and hope for a new car; a Judge Judy tongue lashing for stiffing an ex on alimony payments; a litany of Dr.(not the MD type) Phil quacky adages that do little but fill the pages of his books; or a Maury Povich DNA analysis to determine which shameful breed farm you were born in.  And certainly, you will not be bothered with the sycophant blathering or talking points of low information Red Meat TEA-carnivores.

     While all of these ramblings seem to be about me, let me assure you -- dear reader -- that the “lessons” learned while reading this humble opus will translate and make you a better human, animal lover and protector of those who cannot verbalize or fend for themselves.  

   After all, the Big Guy didn’t give us vocal cords, but he did give us good paws for typing to tell you all about life, politics, personal relationships, Blue Bell ice cream, and how to get the attention of your cable provided when service swirls around the porcelain latrine after multiple conversations with English-challenged individuals. 

   And if you don’t believe all that you read in these missives, then you might as well go to the animal shelter and adopt a stubborn, uncaring, self-centered cat to match you personality and outlook on life.

   Enjoy, and remember to keep the snack canister full — while your faithful companion nestles with you in the La-Z-Boy — while reading.

CCR 06-09-16 Self-interest Polishing

the   Controversial  Committee   Report
“We don’t raise sacred cows...we just butcher them.”

"Self-interest Polishing"

   Well, dear readers, while you have been having fun in the sun on your vacation to Waxahachie to visit their new water slide, QueenB VD of the House of NPD and Royal Court of WAB and Protectorate of Red Meat TEA-carnivores has been flitting around town and outlying areas polishing her political resumé which has been tarnished by failed leadership.

   Yes, the queen is in 5th gear attempting to polish and wash all of the Red Meat TEA-carnivore stains and drool off her royal robes.  And if asked, she would probably take a biblical response and deny, deny, deny (that’s three times for those counting) any past associations, endorsements or pandering activities with Glenn Beck, who has the direct pipeline to the etherial Big Guy for political pronouncements, and the Ted "Lizard Grin" Cruz sycophant brigade of low information mushrooms.

   How could this be possible?  Why would QueenB VD suddenly want to disavow or hide, in a closet, all her previous ‘off the edge’ positions near and dear to Red Meat TEA-carnivores?

   To better understand this, just gander at some recent activities of the queen.  

   The queen’s FaceBook page (one of four she has) is replete with a trove of photo ops detailing her appearances at any number of forums, luncheons, gatherings and mane flipping events.  But if one looks closer, none of those recent activities have any mention or relationship to Red Meat TEA-carnivore events, or Irving issues.

   This apparently is not an oversight on QueenB VDs part, but a definite course of action taken to have a perceived personal-shape shift into a mayoral candidate up for re-election.  Her desire might be to bury all of her inane activities which caused Irving to be the worldwide laughing stock and municipal punch line due to her spreading fact fabrications (polite use of the word lie) regarding Sharia law and the "clock kid"…if folks didn’t heed her apocalyptic blabbering.

   Well, the groups who did heed her blathering visited the city and pranced around a religious institution fully armed.  Plus, those activities prompted a Texas branch of the KKK to plan a summer visit to the city.

   As events and her appearances at area Red Meat TEA-carnivore gatherings have dwindled, QueenB VD now wants to pack all this away in her closet of failed leadership and only flit around the area wrapped in an American flag spouting language which is not akin to her previous extreme right-wing fear mongering diatribes.

   But then, this is what she must do to pave the way for a re-election bid.  After all, does anyone really want to elect a mayor whose Darjeeling-TEA-brewed heart (that’s black TEA for the mushrooms) does little to make Irving a better community, or addresses issues of real concern?

   Be on the lookout!  QueenB VD may be coming to a luncheon or ribbon cutting near you.

   Dylan Westie, Executive editor/Part-time wordsmith and Social Media Troll for the CCR, happened to come across a couple events the queen has scheduled.  Be sure to attend her photo op and watch as she flashes the pearly whites while flipping her mane at:

Waffle Shack:  A new syrup is being named at the Waffle Shack in honor of QueenB VD for the ribbon cutting/dedication.  Her new syrup will stick to anything…but the truth.  And the waffles made in this new business are much like the queen’s political decisions and Red Meat TEA-carnivore speeches…where she generally waffles on matters of significant consequence regarding the city.
    
Victoria’s Non-secret Car Wash:  This will be a cornerstone dedication attended by the queen.  All vehicles will be washed and cleaned by the queen’s bevy (sans tops) of single source developers, "Dark Money" hustlers, cronies with conflict of interest who have received city tax bucks, Sugar Daddy handlers, and die hard Red Meat TEA-carnivore low-information mushrooms.

Forum For Faking Facts:  This newly created forum will be conducted by QueenB VD to teach all budding and young politicos how to take a resumé, of leadership inactivity, and make it appear one has just solved the world peace problem, adopted ethics which should apply to all others, and save tax payers enough bucks to put them in the top 1%.  

   If you should attend any of the gatherings, where the queen is busy conducting a photo op session, there is only one thing to remember:  All of this political resumé polishing, fact fabrications and posting of social activities on her FaceBook pages has little or nothing to do with the actual job she was elected to do…serve as mayor of the city.  While she attempts to pump her popularity, the city is drained of effective leadership by not having attention directed to the real issues of Irving.

   And it is certain QueenB VDs full scale personal promotion tour will not eradicate the image she has already burned in the soul of the city during her tenure.

……………………………..Mark Holbrook

Consider This:  If Softtek, the Mexican firm, decides to locate their North American corporate headquarters in Dallas, as opposed to Irving, might a general undisclosed rationale be: the mayor of Dallas did not force his council to support the inane State HB 562 resolution; and the mayor of Dallas has not toured his city or surrounding areas to promote a political agenda which caused divisiveness among all residents. 
   Since QueenB VB was not in Mexico, with other area delegates, to assist in promoting Irving, perhaps, her presence was not necessary for the Mexican officials to already know the political and divisive agenda which the queen has been responsible for promoting.  Wouldn’t it be interesting to know what the Mexican business officials really think about Irving?
   Stay tuned.  This could result in another very sad chapter in the reign of QueenB VD.

CCR 05-28-16 Budget Shock

the   Controversial  Committee   Report
“We don’t raise sacred cows...we just butcher them.”

"Sticker  Budget Shock"

   Well, dear readers, it’s that time of the year again.  During the past week, QueenB VD, Chief of Staff Pet Rock LaMorgese and the balance of the Irving City council managed to sit through a two day PowerPoint-induced coma to determine the city’s mammoth budget for 2016-17.

   This marathon session and spending-fest was billed as the "Budget and Strategic Plan Review."

   While you may have been toiling, in a sweatshop working to make ends meet, the city council has been determining how to spend all your tax bucks like this was actually their money to spend.  
   (Yes, it’s a thankless job, but they even get paid to do it.)

   Of course, the documentation the city administration has pulled together, coupled with all the additional "we need this" items pushed by individual council members, represents the first stage of the process.  Later, the city administration will inform the council that to include everyone’s ‘kitchen sink,’ taxes will probably have to be raised.  And this is where the dollar-fisticuffs begin for who gets what and how much. 

    Knowing the city council normally does not want to increase the city’s property tax rate, they are hoping that since property appraisals for a majority of citizens increased around 10% this year, this increase in values will provide additional city revenues as their panacea.

   This process would allow each council member to state: We didn’t raise your tax rate — we just collected more money from you because your appraisal went up.
   (For the slower readers: Your property appraisal does not set the tax rate of how much you will pay.  The tax rates are set by city, county, ISDs and other governmental institutions.)

    Yes, the city council is prone to pointing a finger at someone else.  This is necessary to achieve the goal of having pet projects, single source developers, cronies (even those with a conflict of interest) and Sugar Daddy handlers, loyal to the queen, to have all of their personal items included in the city budget at your expense. 

   While most council members (with righteous intent to do what they were elected to do) will attempt to have a street repaved, storm drainage improved, or police and fire protection increased to accommodate genuine needs, QueenB VDs list has a more personal slant with her budget additions. 

   And this budget season will be a critical factor as QueenB VD develops plans for a mayoral re-election campaign to hold her throne, of perceived power and failed leadership, before leaping into a run for a seat in the 2017 State elections.

   However, when the budget session was over, Dylan Westie, Executive editor/part-time wordsmith and Social Media Troll for the CCR, managed to obtain a copy of the queen’s demand list which she gave to the city manager without, of course, council review or consideration. 

   Following is just a few of the items QueenB VD wants included in the budget:

   1.  A larger than life statue of her placed at the Four Season Resort and Spa to replace the Byron Nelson statue which will be relocated to south Dallas due to AT&Ts stealing the golf tournament from under the queen’s crown and nose.  Total cost: $425,013.
   2.  Wants the Hackberry Creek street in front of her mini-castle totally reworked, repaved and widened to accommodate all those late night visitors seeking the queen’s favor.  A mini-parking lot and rose tinted street lights will also be constructed.  Total cost: $1,200,000.
   3.  Needs a new ergonomic chair, which is elevated higher than all the other council member’s seats, so it will appear she is queenly, above all peons and serfs, and in total control.  Total cost: $1,850
   4.  Increase personnel staffing and personal amenities to include: 
A personal photographer for her photo op sessions -- $75,000/year
A personal driver to sashay her to photo op sessions -- $75,000/year
A new city limo to cart her to photo op sessions -- $125,000 
   A videographer for all of her Red Meat TEA-carnivore YouTube babbling-speech gatherings -- $87,000/year
   A personal assistant to handle scheduling/photo ops and ‘fishing’ for speaking engagements and award programs to attend -- $72,000
Renovate and add a private room at The Keg restaurant for luncheon meetings with cronies, single source developers and Sugar Daddy handlers -- $310,000
Have the city pay her personal Dallas PR consultant planning her re-election campaign to save "Dark Money" funds -- $5,000/month
A FaceBook and Twitter manager who will troll all the Red Meat TEA-carnivore publications to post items on her FaceBook page making it appear she supports and agrees with all the kooky opinions expressed -- $95,000
   Of course, ordinary citizens will have an opportunity to express their thoughts and opinions on what should or should not be included in the city’s budget.  However, by the time the budget document is presented for citizens’ review, the die will have been cast and the chances of citizen input actually influencing, or changing the budget is as probable as Byron Nelson speaking at the council’s Citizen’s Forum on the budget to request the AT&T sponsored golf tournament remain in Irving.

   There is one way to have your budget items considered in a more favorable light.  Send an e-mail to the mayor, each council member and city manager detailing what your major concern with the 2016-17 budget might be.  But don’t stop there!

   When the evening for public input on the budget occurs, be sure to go to the council chamber and ask if/why the information submitted to them is/is not included in the budget.  This will allow the council members to know you are concerned, expect a response, and also require a legitimate answer, without spin, to your request.

   Just remember:  This is your money being collected and spent and you have every right and obligation to ensure it is being done wisely and with transparent fiscal responsibility.

CCR 05-19-16 From Prosperity to the Pits

the   Controversial  Committee   Report
“We don’t raise sacred cows...we just butcher them.”


   The election is over.  QueenB VD has temporarily banished her Chief of Staff Pet Rock, Brad LaMorgese, to the Tower of Obedience for not delivering the Hackberry Creek voters for former disgraced council member Spink.  His failure resulted in a Pet Rock not being elected to the city council for servitude to the queen.

   Now, QueenB VD will devote her full attention to daily photo ops as she and her highly priced Dallas PR consultant outlines her re-election campaign.  The queen believes she must be re-elected so that she is in a position of perceived authority…for when she bolts to run for a State position in 2018.

   Added to this mix is the queen’s "Dark Money" clones beating the bushes for more bucks to cover the cost of all her luncheon tickets…where she can make an appearance for a photo op.  QueenB VD does not have to know or really care about the groups she is crashing.  Her primary interest is having a photo op, while flipping her mane, in an attempt to appear queenly.

   Perhaps, a quick retrospective of QueenB VDs actual accomplishments during her reign might be in order.  Of course, these feats will not be a part of, or included in the Dallas PR consultant’s "image polishing" package for the queen. 

From Prosperity to the Pits
(The Irving Legacy of QueenB VD)

Dallas Cowboys…gone.
Byron Nelson…gone.
Verizon…approved millions upon millions in perks and tax abatements to utilize in their for-profit development…while they sold out Irving customers to an inept Frontier Communications.
Glenn Beck…a Red Meat TEA-carnivore with a direct line to the Big Guy who mentored and assisted in promoting the queen’s facts fabrication babbling tour regarding Sharia law…which does not and has never existed in Irving.
Rodney "Bogus-gate Complaint" Anderson and Matt "Squeaky" Rinaldi…State representatives who provided the fuel, for the queen to align her city council Pet Rocks, to pass a bogus resolution in support of their State HB 562 which was ludicrous, wrongheaded and created basic fear mongering politics in the city...at its best.
ARK  Entertainment Center…the queen’s back room council hissy fits still attempt to derail or blacken the eye of this developer since her Sugar Daddy handlers didn’t achieve an option to do the project.
OliverMcMillan…the queen’s single source developer which she wants to utilize for the old Texas Stadium site to build a "Las Colinas 1.2" pablum-inspired office complex…with hidden hopes for a tennis pavilion still lingering.
Hines Reality…a new singular developer, who introduced the queen to OliverMcMillan, has already received millions upon millions of infrastructure tax bucks and tax deferrals with the queen’s approval.
Gun Toting Thugs…pronouncements, which were fact fabrications, have caused armed groups to prance around a religious institution in the city in support of the queen’s irresponsible statements made in appearances before Red Meat TEA-carnivore gatherings and on the Glenn Beck program.
KKK…a potential summer visitor to Irving, by a Texas offshoot of this group, is also part and parcel of what the queen has allowed to fester in the city without any apology, or recognition on her part as being the primary cause for these disturbances.
   (These "achievements" must be the "increasing prosperity" which caused the French-American Chamber of Commerce to bestow and "honor" the queen with an "award.")

   Even with all these "achievements," QueenB VD is always attempting to "polish" her well tarnished image so citizens will believe she is working on their behalf and not her self-aggrandizing agenda of self-interest.

   Case in Point:  QueenB VD might have really been embarrassed to enjoy the Byron Nelson opening gala hosted by sponsor AT&T.  So, she dispatched her doppelgänger to register her true sentiments for the start of the golf tournament.

   The following pic reflects the QueenB VD doppelgänger about to jump in her golf cart-carriage to chase down and drive AT&T executives into the rough for stealing the Byron Nelson from Irving during her reign.  

   While the queen will have to take a few penalty strokes for her link actions, she remains consistent in scoring ‘par for the course’ in losing viable ventures for Irving. 

   As the upcoming days pass and you happen to see a myriad of photo ops (especially on the Flying Harpy FaceBook page, or postings on her YouTube video channel) of QueenB VD at a luncheon, or patting little kids on the head, or speaking to another of her Red Meat TEA-carnivore sycophant gatherings, only one thing should be remembered: Promotional utterances and statements of "accomplishments" during her reign are probably fact fabrications designed to spin the reality of what has occurred in Irving over the past seven years.
   Voters will have to decided if they want to re-elect QueenB VD so she can sit on her throne until time to file for a State office, or actually move the city forward, as was done this past election when no Pet Rocks were elected.  

   The past election clearly demonstrated the reign of QueenB VD has finally faltered with more and more voters becoming aware of the damage, to the city, inflicted over the past several years.  This can all be attributable to a vapid leadership style which is self-centered and not responsible to the people of the city.  
   (Cronies, single source developers, "Dark Money" hustlers and Red Meat TEA-carnivores head the list of those who actually garner the queen’s attention.)

   One fact is certain.  QueenB VDs temperament in council executive sessions will continue to demonstrate her attempt to sting and singe those who do not kowtow to her whims and fancies to pad her resumé of failed leadership.  And she will have to monitor her outbursts of browbeating fellow council members during public sessions in order to appear queenly.  

   After all, she will want to appear queenly in order to keep any possible NPD-spikes from occurring while the cameras are rolling.

   While staff of the CCR has used the following quote from a city hall observer before, it seems only proper now to assist in kicking-off QueenB VDs re-election campaign with: The mayor of Irving is a WIMP…Worst Irving Mayor Period.

   Now, that would be a terrific banner for QueenB VDs re-election brochures.  At least, this would not be fact fabricated for deeds she has not accomplished. 

   Stay tuned for additional details on how the queen will spin failure into accomplishments in her trek to seek a higher office…as if our State didn’t already have enough problems.

CCR 05-13-16 Info Flash

the   Controversial  Committee   Report
“We don’t raise sacred cows...we just butcher them.”


CCR Info Flash

   Allan Meagher has been declared the winner of the Place 2 Irving City council election with a 50.01% margin!!

   This means there will not be a runoff election.

   The only question remaining is will QueenB VDs "Dark Money" cronies spend $2,000+ to keep the discontent and her need for a council Pet Rock before the voting public by calling for a recount of the results.  

   In the general election, Spink only garnered a bit more than 30% of the popular vote.  It is unimaginable to think he could poll enough votes to overcome any deficit with a recount. 

   Early signs now reflect the city council will move forward without QueenB VDs Pet Rock contingency…except for her undying, subservient, and always faithful Pet Rock LaMorgese.  This, of course, assumes Riddle and Ward now realize the fallacy of some of their previous votes in support of the queen’s self-aggrandizing agenda.  Time and future votes will tell!

   The queen is dead mortally wounded. The queen is dead mortally wounded.  Long live the Voters for Irving.

CCR 05-13-16 Loo Remarks

the   Controversial  Committee   Report
“We don’t raise sacred cows...we just butcher them.”

"Loo Remarks"

   It was a busy week for Dylan Westie, Executive editor/Part-time wordsmith and Social Media Troll for the CCR.

   Mother’s Day, city elections and wondering when members of the Irving City council contracted the debilitating Crony Capitalism virus.  

   The CDC (Center for Disease Control) later plotted the council’s infection as probably occurring in a smoke filled room with Verizon executives who passed their tainted tin cup around to collect benefits, tax abatements and swag bag incentives.

   Perhaps, the most unfathomable conundrum taxing Dylan’s canine-brain synapses this past week was how State officials were having extreme difficulty deciding which bathroom they should use while touring and meddling in the affairs of local governments.

   The Red Meat TEA-carnivore Pee-tour (Patrick, Paxton and Rinaldi) bus did not have restroom facilities and this made their stops void of grins and smiles.

   With all of the genuine issues facing the State of Texas, one has to wonder what possesses a trio of elected officials to concentrate on a non-issue over real issues. 

   For instance:

Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick has probably spent the entire past six months on the Ted "Lizard Grin" Cruz presidential-lying tour.  Maybe the State doesn’t really need a Lt. Gov. if he has this much free time available from the elected position of serving all citizens of Texas.  Playing best bud to his Red Meat TEA-carnivore pal was not what he was elected to do.

Attorney General Ken Paxton is under indictment for a few of his previous political sins which now have even sparked the interest of the Securities and Exchange Commission.  Maybe the ‘ambulance chasers’ representing Paxton advised him to jump on any issue which had nothing to do with finances, stocks and bonds, or campaign contributions to fade the heat.

State Representative Matt "Squeaky" Rinaldi needed a fresh Red meat TEA-carnivore issue, since his mentoring of QueenB VD on the State HB 562 resolution managed to blowup in her face and made her fact fabrications regarding Sharia law go viral.  His actions also assisted in damaging the city’s reputation and opened the door for unsavory thugs to prance around the city carrying guns.

   Yes, those three gob-smacks are really making Texas proud with their Red Meat TEA-carnivore spreading of political discontent, fear mongering, and fact fabrications to obtain photo ops, TV time and appeal to their sycophant base.  Truly sad!
   To capture the hilarity of these elected officials doing everything but their job, Dylan pawed the following tweets:

Dylan Westie @DylanWestie1 May 13
Hollywood blockbuster: TX State buffoons Patrick, Paxton & Rinaldi star as the Three Stooges in remake of I. P. Freely’s "On Golden Stream."

Dylan Westie @DylanWestie1 May 12
If (the) Red Meat TEA-carnivore brain trust resides in Patrick, Paxton & Rinaldi, Texas is swirling in the latrine of total incompetence. Flush!

Dylan Westie @DylanWestie1 May 12
Problem solved: State clowns Patrick, Paxton & Rinaldi should hitch a Port-a-Potty to SUV as they continue their bathroom brawl fiasco tour.

Dylan Westie @DylanWestie1 May 10
w/State Red Meat TEA-carnivores Patrick & Rinaldi unable to hold it, where's QueenB VD in bathroom brawl support for her mentors? In line?

Dylan Westie @DylanWestie1 May 10
Matt "Squeaky" Rinaldi was standing w/bathroom czar Lt. Gov. Patrick today looking flushed over FW potties. Both can’t hold very much TEA?
…………………………………………….

   Finally, staff of the CCR hopes you were able to score tickets ($150 each) to the French-American Chamber of Commerce fete this evening.  QueenB VD will be "honored," "awarded" and flipping her mane while being photographed as she accepts the "prestigious" Alain Bellet whatever plaque.
   Note:  The Alain Bellet award was hatched, named and is given by Alain Bellet, former president of this little known group!  
   If you want to read more about this French farce, then go to the blog for the report designated below for full details.  And be sure to observe the "award" is given to the queen for "increasing prosperity," not divisiveness, fear mongering and fact fabrications she has so graced the city with the past seven years. 
  
   See CCR, 04-03-16, "Pardon, Monsieur," for entire report:  

   Yes, dear readers, the French-American Chamber of Commerce DFW 1(FACC-DFW), on May 13, 2016, will prepare French cuisine for a champagne fete to "honor" the queen. 
   The stated rationale for this award is: "Each year Alain Bellet, Founder of the French-American Chamber of Commerce DFW, gives his award to an individual who has significantly contributed to the increasing prosperity of North Texas."
……………………………………………….

   Only in ‘beautiful downtown Irving’ can citizens witness more chicanery, back room deals, and plot twist than the "Game of Thrones" (modeled after QueenB VD?) can create in just one episode. 
   Hopefully, QueenB VD will not imitate the Red Queen and take her necklace off!
