CCR 02-21-17 Cooking for the Election

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

"Cooking for the Election"

   Well, dear readers, the table is set and all the politicos are starting to prepare their best dish to serve voters at the May 6, 2017, Irving political cookout.

   While the table fare might be gluttonous with humongous amounts of egocentric rhetoric, be advise the CCRs food tasters have ensured none of the dishes have been spiked with the same levels of disbelief x-QueenBVD had been serving in her prized self-aggrandizing soufflé.

   Without x-QueenBVD in the election mix this time around, city EMT responders are working overtime to attend to all the Flying Harpies, Crankies, Red Meat TEA-carnivores, single source developers and Sugar Daddy donors needing someone to tell them how to think and act without the irrational actions of the x-queen guiding them.

   Even though the election is months away, staff of the CCR will set the table regarding the political cooks for you to consider supporting.  The tsunami of brochures, signs, robo-calls, and other campaign items — creating gastric indigestion during the election banquet — is imminent.

   Actually, this might be a good time to sprinkle a bit of "Dylan’s Leg Hiking Hot Sauce…Hotter than QueenB VD — political Torofeca FREE" on you repast.  The hot sauce will help clear your palate and eliminate the bad and bitter taste left after six years of x-QueenBVDs reign.  If you don’t have any of Dylan’s hot sauce, then his Zagat Paw Ratings on the candidates might be of assistance.

   Here’s the political menu being prepared for voter consideration:


   City Elections
(In alphabetical order)

Elvia Espino:  While there is little track information, available at this time as to the background or prior service to the Irving community for this individual, one factor which has emerged is the candidate seems to be promoted and sponsored by an extremely political active Dallas family.  And if the CCRs street information is factual, does it sound very classy to begin ones campaign with a photo made at city hall sitting in the mayor’s seat noting: Future Mayor of Irving?
   Dylan’s Zagat Paw Ratings say:  🐾

J. C. Gonzalez:  As with the above candidate, little is know regarding this individual’s service and dedication to the community.  Staff of the CCR is not aware of his serving on any boards or commissions in the city.  Perhaps, campaign materials might shed a little light on qualifications which would point toward his being a viable candidate to serve the city.
   Dylan’s Zagat Paw Ratings say:  🐾

David Pfaff: Pfaff is a born and bred Irving resident who, along with his family, has tirelessly worked for the betterment of the community.  He runs a global family business, and this election represents his first venture into a political arena.  While some might think having a lack of political experience is a negative, staff of the CCR recognizes this as being a significant positive for Pfaff.  He is not tied to the cliques and establishment cronies who have assisted in creating an abundance of political self-interest in the city lately.  
   In Pfaff’s case, he is widely experienced in telling folks what is right, or what should be receiving consideration regarding issues — not what they want to hear…just to solicit a vote.  That trait in-itself should be the mantra for all politicos.
   Dylan’s Zagat Paw Ratings say:  🐾🐾🐾

Rick Stopfer:  Stopfer has political name identification from serving on the DART board and previously on the Irving City council.  His stint on the council ended abruptly when the initial developer of the Entertainment Center project tanked and political forces, directed by QueenB VD, elected Tom Spink.  
   Dylan’s Zagat Paw Ratings say:  🐾🐾

Place 3

Dennis Webb:  Unopposed
   Dylan’s Zagat Paw Ratings say:  🐾🐾🐾

Place 5

Abdel Elhassan:  Currently, staff of the CCR has no information regarding this candidate.  From outward appearances, he could be a candidate spurred by all the inflammatory rhetoric and fabricated facts spewed by x-QueenBVD during her reign and Red Meat TEA-carnivore speaking engagements.  His candidacy could be an attempt and effort to clarify the many falsehoods perpetrated by the x-queen.  When background information is available, it will be published in a future report.
   Dylan’s Zagat Paw Ratings say:  🐾

Oscar Ward:  Ward currently serves as the council member for this district.  His allegiance to following x-queenly dictates has slowly dissolved (to her petulant chagrin) and his concern for doing what was in the best interest of the city has emerged.  Being on the right track and with no future interference from the x-queen, he will, hopefully, be in a position to utilize his council knowledge during this critical time when the city needs to recover from the lack of mayoral leadership recently experienced.
   Dylan’s Zagat Paw Ratings say:  🐾🐾

Early voting for the city election will be: April 25 - 30 and May 1 - 3.

     There will be much to consider regarding the candidates before the election.  While most voters will have to decide which menu item to select, the task shouldn’t be too difficult.  And if Dylan’s Zagat Paw Ratings are considered, then the task could be even easier.

   The real dilemma will be for Flying Harpies, Crankies, etc. in the mayoral race to see if they revert to supporting a candidate they violently opposed with all sorts of political garbage, "Dark Money" brochures, and FaceBook rubbish.  One can only hope they have seen the light of what their actions have done to the city and what could be done with new and fresh leadership. 
   This early preview is provided to start the ball rolling with the intent Irving voters will actually consider the importance of this election.  The time to right the city’s ship of state and do what citizens request and need for positive change is at hand.

   Second helpings of the political menu will be provided in later reports.

NOTE:  There is also an IISD school board election which will be held on May 6th.  Details of the one contested race will be covered in another report.

CCR 02-16-17 Tweeting Joy

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

"Tweeting Joy"

   There is no denying Dylan Westie, Executive editor/Part-time wordsmith and Social Media Troll for the CCR, was a bit ecstatic upon hearing the glorious news QueenB VD was not going to run for re-election.

   And he certainly didn’t tear-up when reading the Torofeca she promoted in the DMN article as to why she wasn’t seeking re-election.  In fact, he noted her quotes in the article as just being another load of her #AlternativeFacts.

   Regardless, he quickly went to his Twitter account to register this glorious day in Irving history when QueenB VD of the House of NPD and Royal Court of WAB and Protectorate of Red Meat TEA-carnivores and Standard Bearer WIMP realized voters had caught up, and were fed up with her antics of doing everything related to her self-interest instead of the interest of citizens and the city.

   The following is provided for those who do not follow Dylan on Twitter at: @dylanwestie1.  Enjoy…he did.

CCR 02-15-17 #AlternativeSignings

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


   Well, dear readers, QueenB VD is at it again.  And, of course, her latest self-promotion escapade has all the markings of appearing to promote and push her self-interest for a political position above being mayor of the city.

   QueenB VD has signed a letter, as mayor of Irving, chastising the Dallas County Commissioners for their recent passage of a resolution.  Since the commissioners have every right to pass whatever resolutions they deem necessary, why does the queen feel it is her obligation to indulge in strident commentary on their actions?

   What makes QueenB VDs encroachment on another governmental entity — by signing this letter as mayor of Irving — unconscionable is the  inference and insinuation which gives readers the impression her comments represent the opinion and approval of the Irving City council and city!

   This just isn’t true!  When the queen infers she knows how to run county government better than those elected to do so, this places another unwarranted stigma on Irving.  Shouldn’t voters be the voice to decide when the Dallas County Commissioners might be out of line?

   There is no record of QueenB VD consulting or seeking the approval of the city council before rushing off to affix her name to a letter which is slanted more to appeasing Red Meat TEA-carnivores than reflecting disappointment with the Dallas County Commissioners.

   Once again, QueenB VD places her self-interest and self-aggrandizing agenda before considering the fact her lone voice does not represent the city or city council in a matter.  A larger question should be asked: Where are the Irving City council voices expressing opposition to the queen’s actions and censoring her comments?

   What would QueenB VDs reaction have been if the Dallas County Commissioners sent a letter of protest when her disastrous HB 562 city resolution was being shipped off to Austin?  When this resolution was considered, the Irving City council was involved by barely passing the matter on a 5-4 vote.  

   Additionally, it should be remembered the City of Irving was the only city in the entire state of Texas which passed a resolution in support of the State’s irrelevant HB 562.

   Of course, QueenB VD cannot just inappropriately sign a letter demeaning the actions of the Dallas County Commissioners, she has to make her presence and egocentricity appeal to a broader audience.  And this must be why she went on the Glenn "Bloated Bloviator" Beck’s airwaves to reinforce her strident, misguided and fact fabrication comments.

   Being on Beck’s program was QueenB VDs continued attempt to reinforce her pseudo-credentials of being a rabid supporter and proponent for Red Meat TEA-carnivores.  All of her actions and statements had little, or nothing to do with the job she was elected to perform as mayor of the city.

   The filing deadline for city offices closes Friday, February 17th at 5:00 PM.  Hopefully, there will not be a filing by QueenB VD.

   The time to end the six-year nightmare of QueenB VDs failed leadership of the city could begin at 5:01 PM on Friday.  And frankly, dear readers, that is not soon enough!

CCR 02-12-17 #BVDsFabricatedFactsPostings

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


   QueenB VDs FaceBook (Governmental Official) page and her new KIA PR re-election postings-schlep — also her gleeful-queenly video sycophant, Mr. Isn’t-She-just-the-Greatest -- have a task greater than Hercules cleaning the Aegean Stables ahead.

   After all, this guy, Mr. Isn’t-She-just-the-Greatest, will have to shovel loads and loads of political Torofeca, created by QueenB VD, on the unwashed masses by attempting to convince them his sycophant postings are the new and true Gospel According to BVD.  Believe and obey…or else!

   Starting his stint off with posting drivel from a fluff piece dating back to 2013, or even considering future Internet mentions of QueenB VD in Red Meat TEA-carnivore publications, do you think Mr. Isn’t-She-just-the-Greatest will ever consider factual news reports from the Dallas Morning News, or other highly reliable media sources?  Of course, this would be difficult, since QueenB VD basically doesn’t communicate or return calls to the DMN.  You see, the DMN just doesn’t prop up or give credence to her unsubstantiated and myopic views for the nightmare PR issues she creates. 

   Also, the queen might still be stinging from a DMN opinion piece that branded her Aloof, Haughty and Dismissive!  
   (Wow, could NPD and AHD be all rolled into one individual?)

   Additionally, how will Mr. Isn’t-She-just-the-Greatest explain the support QueenB VD has received from the Bureau of American-Islamic Affairs (gun toting Froot Loops®) and the Texas Rebel Knights of the KKK prancing and parading around a religious institution to demonstrate their allegiance to the queen’s facts fabrications? 

   Perhaps, it might benefit readers of Mr. Isn’t-She-just-the-Greatest inane platitudes, for QueenB VD, to include a few of the following references where the queen has failed and demonstrated pseudo-leadership of Irving.  

   And if one considers all of the future FaceBook, YouTube pablum, and blather which will be posted — to demonstrate the queen’s abilities to "work for Irving," then Mr. Isn’t-She-just-the-Greatest might be suffering from the same myopic vision ailments the queen possesses.  

   Addressing and realizing the following, by Mr. Isn’t-She-just-the-Greatest, would go a long way to sweep a bit of the Torofeca off the self-indulgent postings QueenB VD dictates…to please sycophants and low information supporters.  These articles are just the tip of the negative PR ice berg which QueenB VD has floated through the city: 

   "But there I was last week, smack dab in the middle of a story about Irving Mayor Beth Van Duyne’s rise as a tea party star.
   And the experience was even more discomforting when I saw what big fat fibs she’s telling. She’s using me in her tea party speeches. Or abusing me, I should say."

   "There is no evidence that the 14-year-old high school freshman was part of some elaborate conspiracy to embarrass Irving or further Islamic supremacy when he brought a homemade digital clock into MacArthur High School. But that isn’t stopping Irving Mayor Beth Van Duyne and folks like Glenn Beck and Alex Jones from fueling the flames. Their goal may be to discredit a 14-year-old kid, but the result is that they only discredit themselves."

   "But Irving Mayor Beth Van Duyne and many of her supporters suggest that not only is such mediation unconstitutional, …"  That is nonsense, of course, but it plays politically with certain segments of society.
   The Irving City Council, led by its mayor, voted last month to add its support for the redundant legislation, which is obviously irrelevant except in its ability to demean Muslim residents and greatly irritate others of rational mind."
   (Remember, the vote was 5-4 and passage was due to four Pet Rock’s fear of the queen.)

   "Extreme political rhetoric has helped fuel the rise of hate groups in the United States, and Texas Republicans Ted Cruz and Greg Abbott are partly to blame, the editor of a report on extremism says.
   The report also highlights Irving for anti-Muslim backlash that made national headlines. It cited Mayor Beth Van Duyne's condemnation of an Islamic mediation panel and the arrest of teen Ahmed Mohamed over a homemade clock that was labeled a ‘hoax bomb.’"

   "But no one epitomizes Texas’s recent flirtation with Islamophobia more than Irving mayor Beth Van Duyne. 
   "…Van Duyne is a rising star in the Texas tea party for supposedly saving Irving from sharia law.  

   And with all the no-fault-of-mine, kind, gentle, caring, and positive image QueenB VD is attempt to shape-shift into her re-election efforts, voters are not buying her newfound acceptance of the city’s best economic driver to come down the pike…the Entertainment Center by ARK.
   Who could forget all the negative votes QueenB VD registered against this project over her six year reign of misguided thinking?  And who could forget the following pronouncement of what QueenB VD is really like when her self-gratification, verbal bullying of city council members, and petulant attitude is not recognized if the cameras are not rolling?  To wit:

DMN, 10-11-14, ARK partner, Noah Lazes:  "This is Beth continuing to push an agenda that was clearly not accurate," Lazes said. "It’s unfortunate that a personal agenda and a personal vendetta is influencing political decisions.”

   What rational thinking individual would believe QueenB VD has been representing the best interest of citizens?  Isn’t it obviously clear the queen has been serving her own personal interest?  Isn’t it evident the queen’s political future comes before the needs of the city and citizens?
   Obviously, Mr. Isn’t-She-just-the-Greatest has his PR hack-work — of attempting to dilute the Irving political well QueenB VD has poisoned — cut out for him.  If he is getting paid for his efforts, then it probably isn’t enough.  And as soon as the queen grows weary of any failed efforts on his part, then any fringe benefits, if available, would probably disappear, too.
   You see, QueenB VD has little or no tolerance for those who cannot fabricate her queenly illusions of grandeur into a believable reality for all of her slow learning supporters.  
   And in this re-election cycle, for QueenB VD, the final test is: Has she fooled enough individuals to believe she should later be elected to a higher political office — where only Red Meat TEA-carnivores congregate — to decide when and where folks can go to the bathroom to pee?!
   Rumor has it she may even ask Carly Simon to re-word her hit song to warble the tune for her opponents: "You’re so vain, you probably think this election is about you."
   No, dear readers, in the queen’s realm, it is always about her. 

………………………………Mark Holbrook 

Publication Note:  The next edition of the CCR plans to assist Mr. Isn’t-She-just-the-Greatest by offering valid points which voters would like explored in his future postings.  This could include: If QueenB VDs gainful employment is noted as being a self-employed "consultant," are any of her Sugar Daddy contributors, cronies with conflict of interest, or single source developers "clients?"  Would she be willing to provide her tax returns for review?  Were any "dark money" funds or Sugar Daddy bucks utilized to pay for all her traipsing around the country side, or abroad to spout fact fabrications in an effort to improve her position of seeking a higher political office?  Could a YouTube video, of an executive council session, be provided where QueenB VD again goes off the rails to browbeat, intimidate and speak condescending to council members who might disagree with her self-indulgent interest on an issue?  How many bucks will the queen spend on consultants, PR hacks and printed materials to fabricate a positive image…which has been anything but positive for the best interest of the City of Irving?  Instead of taking credit for any good and blaming someone for all the bad, what one issue or item has the queen been solely responsible for which demonstrably benefitted the city and didn’t include fabricating facts, a photo op session, or blathering to Red Meat TEA-carnivores?  How many charitable organization events did the queen participate in or MC to acknowledge all the good being done in the city?

CCR 02-04-17 Hot Relief

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

"Hot Relief"

   Do you still have a bad and bitter taste in your mouth due to the past six years of the QueenB VD inane reign of self-interest and self-promotion?  The genuine tragedy of the six years is the queen probably spent more time on aspiring to higher political prominence than time actually devoted to citizens and the interest of the city. 

   Are you tired of all of QueenB VDs mismanagement, fabricated facts, Sugar Daddy contributors, cronies with conflict of interest, single source developers, turning Irving into a TEA-party sanctuary city, traipsing around the countryside spewing political Torofeca which was not germane to the duties she was elected to perform…or approved by the city council?

   If so, then relief from her reign and the self-aggrandizing actions of  QueenB VD could be near at hand.

   Well, dear readers, relief from QueenB VDs reign requires two treatments.  Here’s how to be rid of all the political damage, bad publicity and self-aggrandizing actions QueenB VD racked up during her tenure on her self-anointed throne at city hall.  

   Relief from BVD #1  
   Yes, Dylan Westie, Executive editor/Part-time wordsmith and Social Media Troll for the CCR, has expanded his political reach by having his own brand of hot sauce bottled.  This is a way for him to 'fire up' the apathetic majority to become involved.

   Obtain a bottle of Dylan’s Leg Hiking Hot Sauce and quickly discover your meals will once again be flavorful and free of memories of the queen’s failure to: enforce her revised ethics ordinance; smoke-filled room meetings with single source developers; attempts to derail the Entertainment Center; and catering to Sugar Daddy donors and cronies.  As the label on the hot sauce states: "Hotter than QueenB VD…political Torofeca FREE."

   For the skeptics, this happens to be a genuine hot sauce and was manufactured in Mineral Wells by Ol Gringo Chile Co.  The flavor is Bordertown Chipotle and will assist in forgetting the travesty of the queen’s actions which made ‘beautiful downtown Irving’ the laughing stock of the metroplex.  
   (Think: "Clock kid," Gun toting Froot Loops® around a religious institution along with members of a Texas branch of the KKK prancing and showing their support for QueenB VD.)

   The hot sauce is being given away, but the supply is limited.  A bottle of the hot sauce will be given to the first ten CCR readers who send an e-mail stating why QueenB VD should not be re-elected.  Please, no profanity as this is a family publication.  The winner’s comments will be posted (without names) in a later issue of the CCR

Relief from BVD #2
   While the hot sauce is a temporary remedy, the only true cure of having relief from QueenB VDs reign of self-interest is to ensure she is not re-elected.

   Dear readers, this is not only possible, but can be accomplished. 

   This election cycle, voters will have the opportunity to elect an individual who has served the community in various organizations, runs an Irving based business with global implications, and has a family who has also been actively involved in helping make Irving a remarkable city.  And this is the key point: Irving needs a mayor who will be dedicated to Irving and the issues the city faces…instead of coddling to sycophants while attempting to climb higher on the political ladder. 

   Electing David Pfaff as Mayor of Irving will ensure the city has a mayor who puts Irving first…not an egocentric agenda of self-interest as QueenB VD has demonstrated.

   David Pfaff as Mayor of Irving will demonstrate the citizens have leadership committed to resolving issues critical to the city.

   David Pfaff as Mayor of Irving knows how to run a business and understands city actions must rely on working with other council members as a team.

   David Pfaff as Mayor of Irving will help erase the stigma of incompetence, bad publicity, and inane actions QueenB VD perpetrated which hampered the city’s relationships with other governmental entities.

   The time is now, dear readers, to break the chain of political incompetency which has bound ‘beautiful downtown Irving’ for the past six years.  The time is now to put Irving first for the citizens of the city.

   And the time is now to achieve relief, change and zero heartburn by electing David Pfaff as Mayor of Irving.
