CCR 04-19-15 The Art of "War"

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

The Art of "War"
    Sun Tzu    
QueenB VD of the Divisive House of Irving 

    QueenB VD of the Divisive House of Irving appears to have lost yet another battle in her "war" with the local media.

   It seems her shallow attempt to defend the inferno of bias and prejudice she sparked (with the assistance of Brad LaMorgese and Tom Spink) for HB 562 — by stating her actions were to defend and "protect" the US Constitution — didn’t pass the believability test with the general public.  

   In fact, many were snickering at her lame attempt of equating her political agenda -- which had nothing to do with Irving -- to performing mayoral tasks she was elected to do.

   Of course, using talking points and scripted remarks provided by her Tea sippin’ State rep pals, "Bogus-gate Complaint" Anderson and "Squeaky" Rinaldi, added to the public’s disbelief of her actions on HB 562.  

   So, when things started going south, Irving’s State reps returned to Austin — with the hope their Irving constituents would not tie them to the divisive mess they helped create — and QueenB VD started looking for another justification for her absurd actions.

   What could she do to quell the stench of her unbelievable promotion of a State resolution that had no bearing on Irving?  Well, to escape the pillaring brought about by her inane actions and comments, she changed course…of course.  

   QueenB VD threw another hollow rationale of talking points to the public to see if this would be swallowed, by providing an Op/Ed column in the DMN.  Sadly, her latest batch of wordsmithing hogwash, concerning HB 562, wallowed in the sty.  The general public wasn’t buying her new lame rationale of wanting to protect "women’s issues." 

   In an effort to re-establish herself as the all wise, omnipotent ruler of her realm, she decided to publish her "war" manual.  This manifesto would be bound with bright red covers and mandatory reading for all of the rabid sycophants, in the trenches, she utilized in attempting to justify her political denseness.  

   The queen's manual would assist in keeping all her subjects in line by having the same talking points to help spread the loads of blather she was producing.  Here are some pages from "The Art of "War" by Sun Tzu QueenB VD of the Divisive House in Irving:   

War Room Strategy #1: When you cannot defend a flaky Op/Ed position, attack a graphic illustration.  

   By diverting attention from the meaningless babble in her opinion piece, QueenB VD felt safe her lame prose would not be given a second thought if she could become a victim.  No other soul would think twice about her blathering if the illustration chosen by the DMN was placed under attack.  By creating this skirmish and insisting followers reign down on the dastardly DMN, she would still be the center of attention while her "defending" women’s issues could take the back burner.  So, QueenB VD cited the following graphic as being a "desecration" of the US flag.  

Graphic produced by the Dallas Morning news
   (What? Huh?  Did she really post this on her "Governmental Official" FaceBook page?  Did she really believe the illustration -- representing her sniveling, backtracking, pseudo-Op/Ed remarks -- desecrated the American flag?)

War Room Strategy #2:  You are solely responsible for establishing what constitutes freedom of expression and patriotism and anyone who disagrees with you is wrong.

   Her latest diversionary tactic was to claim her support of HB 562 was really all about "women’s issues" in the Op/Ed blathering.  Notice how protecting the US Constitution got pushed aside?  And if anyone challenged the assertion her original intent was not about "women’s issues," then they were not only wrong, but did not understand what patriotism and freedom of speech stood for in her realm.  Speech is what the queen says and does which does not require any interpretation.  

   (It must just be staff of the CCR, but the Op/Ed read as if a family lawyer drug out their compendium of trite cliches in order to reach the maximum word count for the Op/Ed publication!)

   It would also be safe to state, QueenB VD also believed the Op/Ed was actually performing her duties as mayor of the city…when in fact she was inflaming the divisive issue, in order for her trolls, Flying Harpies, Tea sippin’ pinheads and uninformed readers to laud her actions.  

   (See, this makes the issue about her again while she attempts to force the media to bend to her dictates as she plays the innocent victim of a mean, in her opinion, publication.)

   Has QueenB VD forgotten the lessons of tyrants who would exercise brutality to prevent the truth from being known?  Is utilizing her FaceBook page her weapon of choice to mow down anyone with an opposing views?

   Perhaps, the following graphic will refresh the queen’s memory of what a free society is guaranteed.  And if she doesn’t understand this graphic, then perhaps a field trip to Paris, France might be in order.  (After all, QueenB VD is use to traveling on the city’s dime for frivolous junkets.)

War Room Strategy #3:  Never let your serfs and peons see you sweat.

   Without a doubt, QueenB VD never sweats or considers the impact of how her actions affect others!  Her self-aggrandizing, inflated ego and self-centered actions seem to have caused all her sweat glands to shrink.  This is also important to her for all the photo op sessions she schedules.  

War Room Strategy #4:  Keep your serfs and peons well fed with self-aggrandizing actions and fluffy talking points.

   There is no doubt QueenB VD feeds her followers very well.  Often, he provides a fete where she changes water into Kool-Aid, serves humongous loads of tripe and allows the serfs and peons to kneel and receive her acknowledgement for doing good work in her realm.  This good work includes, but is not limited to, working with her Flying Harpy flock to post scathing rebuttals to all those who might disagree with her actions or pronouncements on FaceBook.  Also, posting snide remarks on the DMN blog is always a way to garner the queen’s attention and receive extra points of favoritism. 

War Room Strategy #5:  Protocol and tradition happens to be for fools.

   QueenB VD strongly believes she should dictate what is right and proper.  A classic example is she was the first to ever actively campaign, provide Sugar Daddy donors and attempt to sway an election in order to keep her power hold on the city council.  And if she doesn’t have her Flying Harpies and other misfits working the trenches to assure the re-election efforts of Brad LaMorgese and Tom Spink this election cycle, then the city could revert back to where peons and serfs would have an actual say in their government.  This would be disastrous for the queen and cause her to revert to her old council personality of being a negative influence for anything that is not her idea, or on her self-serving agenda.

(And think of all the trauma this would cause the queen’s cronies, single source developers and special interest concerns.  Wow…some might have to conduct their business without free handouts from the city.)

War Room Strategy #6:  Never, never disclose any illness or medications you might be taking.

   This is one of the most important considerations.  If your enemy ever determines there is something wrong, physically or mentally, with you, then this could be used to demonstrate what a weak leader you might be.  (Utilizing doctors in Mexico for all prescription medications and office visits helps to keep this information confidential and out of the public purview.)
   One can only imagine the consequences if the serfs and peons of the realm discovered the queen suffered from that dreaded political disease know as NPD.  Why, there would be no containment of the uprising to restore the realm to its rightful owners…the citizens.
   So, as a matter of official censorship, the queen has removed all references to NPD in ever publication of the realm.
   (For the unenlightened, staff of the CCR managed to obtain a list of NPD symptoms before the queen’s big book burning bonfire.  Hide this away and be alert for any possible symptoms the queen might exhibit in the future.)

Characteristics of Narcissistic Personality Disorder
Has a grandiose sense of self-importance (e.g., exaggerates achievements and talents, expects to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements)
*  Is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, 
brilliance, beauty, or ideal love
*  Believes that he or she is “special” and unique and can only be 
understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status 
people (or institutions)
*  Requires excessive admiration
*  Has a very strong sense of entitlement, e.g., unreasonable
expectations of especially favorable treatment or automatic compliance
with his or her expectations
*  Is exploitative of others, e.g., takes advantage of others to achieve his
or her own ends
*  Lacks empathy, e.g., is unwilling to recognize or identify with the 
feelings and needs of others
*  Is often envious of others or believes that others are envious of him or her
*  Regularly shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes

   Serfs and peons of the realm should be on high alert.  The "war" being waged by QueenB VD is starting to have casualties and her forces are being weakened…wounded Flying Harpies, Kool-Aid addicts going into rehab and closed minds being opened for the first time in eons only to discover the queen is much like the mysterious wizard in the "Wizard of Oz."

   Yes, QueenB VD is hiding behind the curtain and pulling out all the stops to discredit the news media, flood the Internet with her "I’m the victim here" babble and attempting to stave off efforts to shine light on a level of incompetence the city has never witnessed as a result of her HB 562 actions.

   Keep your pitchforks handy for a possible uprising, as QueenB VD is preparing her next unpalatable outburst and battle to again demonstrate the issue is about her…not you.
