CCR 05-16-17 Kissing the Toad

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

"Kissing the Toad"

   This may come as a shock to some dear readers, but all fairy tales do not have a happy ending.  One sometimes finds a fairy tale might deliver poetic justice…instead of the parties living happily ever after.

   Take the tale of the Princess kissing the Frog who then turns into Prince Charming and sweeps her off her feet.  After a brief courtship, the marriage vows are blessed and they live happily ever after in a rent free, government subsidized castle.  Great ending!

   Are you aware of what happens when an ex-queen kisses a toad?  No?

   While most may not be aware, ex-QueenB VD recently kissed a Toad.  And, dear readers, instead of being whisked off to a luxurious castle, she was remanded to a political bumbling bureaucratic-bullpen as a clock punching, salaried employee.  Poetic justice?  

   Some may consider this a sad fairy tale ending for the ex-queen, but many others view the warts the ex-queen received from kissing the toad as justice served.  After all, Irving had to be exposed to her self-aggrandizing and self-indulgent activities for several years.

   To Cue the Toad Kissing:  ex-QueenB VD realized running for re-election this cycle could result in a possible defeat considering all the political baggage, petulant outbursts, Sugar Daddy donors, cronies, and single-source developers amassed over the past six years.  

   Added to all those self-interest activities, she also devoted the bulk of her time traipsing around the North Texas area speaking inflamed, fear mongering rhetoric to Red Meat TEA-carnivore sycophants.

   No group was too small to address as long as a photographer was present to provide photo op pics for one of her many FaceBook pages.

   Desiring a higher office, grander than being mayor of Irving, she also jumped on the national circuit with her fluffy talking point-rhetoric by championing and being the Texas spearhead for the disastrous Carly Fiorina presidential campaign.  When the light bulb burned out on this effort, she shifted gears and latched on to the Ted "Lizard Grin" Cruz Red Meat TEA-carnivore bandwagon.  The campaigning for Cruz soon folded when he lost to Trump.

   With no where else to turn, the ex-queen increased her ‘look-at-me’ efforts and began to ingrain her presence with those who were close to Trump as a means to seek a political appointment.

  A political appointment for ex-QueenB VD would be a 'political pause' to maintain her local sycophant followers until time to run for a higher political office.  Certainly, she would not allude to this plan to those who would provide the appointment.  
  (Side Note:  Remember the photo op with then almost appointed National Security Director, Michael Flynn, in Trump Tower?  After Flynn was later appointed NSD, he was fired for lying.  He is now under investigation for previous dealings/contacts with potential Russian operatives.  Should  one wonder if the Russians have also hacked the ex-queen’s e-mails and electronic messaging to see if, perhaps, there are any compromising instances on her part?)

   While maybe not working out the way she hoped, ex-QueenB VD did manage to preen and babble enough fact fabrication-rhetoric and fluffy achievements for a federal appointment to HUD.  
   (The over/under, for time employed at HUD, is currently 11 months.)

   However, the only problem with the HUD position, assisting in her plans for a higher office, is the job is so far down the political food chain, she has to utilize Meals-on-Wheels to gain political substance.  With a total of 65 regional and field offices in the HUD department, she is a federal minnow in a sea of politically astute sharks.  

   The chances of her dining with the President at the White House and sharing boasts and tweets is rather slim.  

   What makes ex-QueenB VDs political appointment to HUD even stranger is how she was portrayed by the media.  Reviewing the following three articles, a certain flair is noted in the one by Breit Bart which gives the queen credit for introducing sliced bread to Irving and the nation.  
   (Of course, this publication and the ex-queen drink from the same chalice of inflammatory rhetoric designed for low information sycophants.)  

   However, the Dallas Morning News and The Texas Tribune were more realistic in their coverage and assessment of her actual accomplishments while mayor of the city.  Those publications did not fail to mention the grief, aggravation and lost opportunities ex-QueenB VD saddled on Irving.  They also included notations of her Red Meat TEA-carnivore fact fabrications and blathering tours while stoking political fear-fantasies.

    One factor not considered in the above articles was ex-QueenB VDs council and mayoral voting record on affordable housing and federal grants for housing assistance.  How does her prior stance on those issues ‘jive’ with her current HUD role?  Are individuals vetted for federal positions?  Has the queen now seen the light, or merely shape-shifted its direction?

   It will be interesting to see how ex-QueenB VD treats the staff in her new HUD office.  Will this be with the same disdain and aloofness she managed with many Irving City staff and council members?

   After all, she already knows everything about federal housing programs.  Just ask her!  
   (Remember how she attempted to keep some single-family housing from being developed due to not approving the developer who had a good track record?  Luckily, the city council did not agree with her self-interest agenda!)

   To ensure her new staff knows what to expect, staff of the CCR hacked ex-QueenB VDs laptop and discovered the following Official HUD Office Rules she plans to implement. 

   Staff of the CCR wishes ex-QueenB VDs new HUD office staff good luck.  Our gain (no ex-queen) in Irving is considered your loss in Fort Worth.

Note:  Hopefully, this ends the ex-QueenB VD reports unless she runs for a higher political office.  After six-years of noting the mismanagement, egocentric behavior and self-indulgent activities inflicted on Irving, voters should now be well informed that the agenda is always about her and not the constituents she was elected to serve.
   If your memory is short, just review all the CCR reports on the blog site.    MH
