Heaven’s New Angel Plays Piano

Recently I said goodbye to my first love.

Shortly after 2 pm on June 5th Peggy Joyce King was ushered in heavenly style to a new address way north of where she lived the past eight decades.

Mom was what used to be called a P.K. – Preacher’s Kid.  It was a title she wore with pride as an adult, although growing up it was never easy being a P.K.

Mom’s father was a Baptist minister that served a number of small churches throughout Indiana.

Grandpa used to say as a minister you went where you were called, and apparently he was called a lot because Mom went to seven different Indiana high schools over four years.

She attended schools everywhere from Kendallville and Auburn in northern Indiana, to Bunker Hill in north central Indiana, and a few others in between before the Rev. Raymond Finkbiner family settled in Wirt, a small community near the Ohio River town of Madison, Indiana on State Road 7.

Even though she met our father there, Madison was not her favorite stop on the Finkbiner Express.  That would be Kendallville, a small community 25 miles north of Fort Wayne.

What Mom said she most enjoyed about Kendallville was she wasn’t treated like a P.K., but just like any other kid.

What kid doesn’t want that?

It was at a small Baptist church in downtown Kendallville where Peggy Finkbiner first played piano for a church service at age 17.  That was the beginning of an unofficial calling that lasted roughly 65 years with Mom playing piano at various Baptist church services until her early 80’s.

Music was always a big part of her life and one of her favorite high school memories in Kendallville was going to a friend’s house on Saturday nights to listen to a Top 40 radio program featuring big band and swing music.

This was Mom’s rebellious period because her mother forbade her from listening to the radio show at home due to one of the sponsors being – gasp – Chesterfield cigarettes.

My sister Dee (DeDe to her big brother because “Deanna” was too phonetically challenging as a four-year-old) and I both love music today thanks to Mom – including those energetic, boisterous 40’s bands and possibly the best TV theme song ever: Peter Gunn.

Another legacy Mom left us was the joy of laughter.  She had an infectious laugh and once it got going her laugh was like the Energizer Bunny – it kept going, and going, and…

The officiating minister at her June 10th Celebration of Life service shared during his remarks he once saw Mom burst into a spate of giggling that lasted 20 minutes.  “I thought she was going to have a stroke,” he recalled with a smile.

Yes, Mom taught us to laugh and laugh often – “It’s good for what ails you,” she’d say.  And she was right!  Whatever Mom found funny, she knew that if she laughed, eventually the world would quit taking itself so seriously and laugh with her.

It couldn’t help itself!

As a long-time resident of the Otterbein Senior Community (formerly the Franklin United Methodist Home), we used to tell her that sharing joy and kindness was her personal ministry, and she should share it with other residents that might need a smile or encouraging word.

Happily she did and it was appreciated – by both residents and staff.  Several hospice workers and Otterbein staff have shared with our family how they looked forward to their visits with Mom because she was always smiling and laughing.

We also inherited our love of reading from Mom.  Until she was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s several years ago, she loved to read.

In elementary school I read almost every famous American biography the library had and she always had the time to listen if I wanted to share book insights with her.

Little did I know at the time she was prepping me for writing opportunities as a book reviewer.

My sister and I still enjoy reading, and while our first and second grade teachers taught us to read, it was Mom that encouraged it and cheered us on.

The most important thing we learned from our mother was to love God because He loves us.  One Christmas when we were young Mom and Dad gave us Bibles for Christmas.  DeDe’s was white and mine was black.

Wish I could say I still had that Bible, but thanks to Mom I know the wisdom and guidance written between those pages.

Because of the gospel story and God’s promise that eternal life is available to all who believe that Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life, we have the comfort at difficult times like these of knowing that our time apart from loved ones is just temporary.

Mom believed and so do we that when we die, those that accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior receive forgiveness of sins and the promise of eternal life.

Meaning that when we die we not only see Christ face to face, but also family and friends who preceded us.

This gave us comfort when Dad passed three Easters ago, and it gives us peace and grateful hearts today.

So Mom has a new address and a new heavenly mansion just for her.

She never lived in a mansion during her 87-plus years here, but it does our hearts good to know she is living in one now.

So this isn’t goodbye, Mom.  We’ll see you again, and until then, we know you’ll enjoy praising God, playing hymns of praise on the piano and laughing with family members and friends.

Please know you’ll forever be in our hearts and thoughts.  And save us one of your black walnut brownies, okay?

Thanks for reading Dean Riffs. Welcome to all those who love American liberty, free enterprise, and who believe God has blessed our country.  For those who don’t, God bless you but there’s nothing here for you to see.

Liberal Lunacy is Just Beginning

During his campaign President Trump warned us we may get tired of winning.  I’m not even close to being tired of winning, but the president should have warned us just how unhinged the left would get when all the winning began.

If liberals and their kissing cousins the progressives are as unhinged as the examples below, what levels of idiocy and insanity can we expect once the declassified shinola hits the fan the next several weeks?

Lauren Underwood

Illinois Democrat Representative Lauren Underwood caused quite a stir this week when she blamed the Trump Administration for the death of illegal immigrant children being held at the border.

In a testy exchange with Acting Secretary of Homeland Security director Kevin McAleenan, she accused the Border Patrol of intentionally letting children die.

What’s remarkable is Rep. Underwood supports late term abortion and infanticide of babies here legally.  What’s even more remarkable is she is a licensed nurse. 

So tell us again who’s intentionally killing children?

After refusal to clarify her remarks, her comments were struck from the record but she went on Twitter to say this:

“For over a year, it’s been clear that policies at the border have harmed the physical and mental health of migrant children,” she said. “I believe, at this point, failure to change these broken policies based on that knowledge is intentional and unacceptable.”

I don’t know if nurses take a Hippocratic oath like doctors do, but accusing the administration of policies that encourage the death of children while supporting infanticide earns her hypocrite status par excellence – as a licensed nurse, as an elected representative of the people, and as a human being.

Alyssa Milano

They say that even a broken clock is right twice a day.   Actress/Loony activist Alyssa Milano struck one of those two times recently with her call for a #SexStrike.

 

In her tweet pushing for a #SexStrike Milano inadvertently made several pro-life points, including:

*Abstinence really works! It’s 100% reliable and reduces the number of abortions in direct proportion to the number of times its tried.                         

*Her campaign will mean fewer abortions since her audience is liberal women.  Liberal women are more likely to use abortion as a form of birth control and are much more likely than conservative women to get abortions.  

*Milano’s effort to defend abortion pre-birth and post-birth by discouraging copulation will cost Planned Butcherhood hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost business because, let’s be honest – abortion is their business.

Nancy Pelosi

Nancy Botoxi presents one of the best arguments anywhere for term limits. 

She stutters and stammers more than Barack Obama without a teleprompter – and that’s when she’s reading cue cards.

 

Advice for the Speaker of the House: 

Give. It. Up.  You’ve had a nice run, but when your subjects and predicates aren’t in the same zip code every time you open your yap, it’s time to pass the gavel.

Big Tech Now Fact Checking Satire Sites

Facebook, Instagram and other social media monopolists are ramping up efforts to block conservative messaging before the 2020 election, but something funny happened with their ongoing efforts to curb our freedom of speech.

It isn’t the first time that the Big Tech speech police are explaining why they got caught fact checking a website devoted to satire.

It takes a real stroke of genius to fact check a website that illustrates absurdity by being absurd, but Facebook has managed to exceed irony expectations by fact checking a Christian satire site and warning its readers that the satire being flagged isn’t true. Duh!

Let’s get this straight.  Media outlets can broadcast and print rumors, innuendos and outright lies about the president and conservatives and that’s okay.

Intelligence agencies and federal law enforcement can use all manner of tools known to be illegal against a political candidate and president and that’s considered a routine investigation.

But a satirical website that openly promotes itself as parody and satire spoofs these same stories that are in the news 24/7, and that website can be flagged and banned from public view because visitors may not be able to distinguish the parody from the real fake news?

The room is spinning; I need to sit down.

According to Big League Politics, recently The Babylon Bee posted an article on freshman representative Ilhan Omar’s comments criticizing Israel for retaliating after Palestinians fired over 600 rockets into Israeli territory.

The Bee headline attributed to Omar read: “Ilhan Omar: ‘If Israel Is So Innocent, Then Why Do They Insist On Being Jews?'”

The article also quoted Michigan Democrat Representative Rashida Tlaib as tweeting, “It’s a very provocative region to insist on being Jews.  Couldn’t they find somewhere else to be Jews where it’s not so dehumanizing to the people around them?”

When a lawyer and political activist posted this article on Facebook, he was stunned to have it flagged as a HOAX ALERT by Facebook fact checkers LeadStories.com.

This isn’t the first time The Babylon Bee was fact checked by the Big Tech speech police.

In February 2018 the Washington Post reported that fact checker Snopes.com flagged the Bee when they published a farcical post about the Collusion News Network (CNN) buying an industrial strength washing machine to help “spin” the issues.

“The custom-made device allows CNN reporters to load just the facts of a given issue, turn a dial to ‘spin cycle,’ and within five minutes, receive a nearly unrecognizable version of the story that’s been spun to fit with the news station’s agenda,” the Bee reported.

Two things we’ve always known about liberals: 1) They have no sense of humor on issues involving themselves, and 2) They are more sanctimonious than James Comey in front of a mirror.

‘Oblivious to irony’ should be another character trait applied to the identity politics party.

Three New Tales from the Loony Left

It’s a fine line separating acute Trump Derangement Syndrome sufferers from leftists that are bat guano crazy on their own. Below are three recent examples:

Staying Abreast of Climate Change

Recently The Gateway Pundit reported on a climate change protester who glued her breasts to the ground in front of the Goldman Sachs building in London.

Forward Thinking Protester

According to reports she was part of a group protesting corporations’ “role in our collective suicide.”  Not sure what gluing her female anatomy to the pavement has to do with climate change and corporate greed, but guess it was the breast she could do.

Whatever your opinion on climate change, no one can say this woman didn’t have skin in the game.

Castigating Men for Abortions

Illinois Democrat State Representative Diane Pappas thinks she has found a clever way to prevent mass abortions: castrate men and charge to store their sperm until such time when they are ready to begin a family.

Illinois Democrat Rep Diane Pappas

“If we allowed men to be castrated, took the sperm to the bank, collected tax dollars on it for storage, then when it’s time, to have the man decide he’s ready to begin a family…well then problem is solved,” she said brightly of her abortion solution.

Talk about throwing the baby out with the bath water!

Ms. Pappas’ solution is a bit like pruning trees by chopping them down or getting to zero unemployment by outlawing work.

Thus far the only support for Ms. Pappas’ plan is from a Saudi Arabian transvestite soccer team and the gals on The View.

College Mascot Victim of Students Hatchet Attack

The student body at George Washington University recently voted to remove George the Colonial as the school’s mascot.

According to 54 percent of the student body voting on an issue generated by a petition containing just 500-plus signatures, George Washington isn’t considered inclusive enough to represent the school named for him.

George the Colonial Gets the Hatchet

Campus Reform reported that a GW Student Association senator said that “school spirit is something that should be based on equality.”  Because the general of the Continental Army, our first president, and the Father of our Country was a slave owner, he has been judged unworthy and persona non grata by today’s pajama-clad arbiters of morality.

It’s unknown how many students who voted to remove George the Colonial as mascot have burned their $1 bills with Washington’s image in protest, or why they may replace him with… a hippopotamus. I’m not kidding.

In my opinion a better choice as a GW mascot would be George Orwell or Tommy Taliban.  The former was a master at manipulating language as a weapon of mind control, and the latter believes in destroying anything they find offensive.

Democrats Say the Darnedest Things

Long before camcorders and America’s Funniest Home Videos, radio and TV personality Art Linkletter used to host a show called, “Kids Say the Darnedest Things.”

Today it is Democrat presidential candidates saying the “darnedest” things, and while some candidates are older than others, all are old enough to know better than to say the darnedest things they’ve been saying.

Bernie Sanders

America’s best known socialist Bernie Sanders has added another wacko herb to his socialism stew by supporting the right of murderers, rapists, violent offenders and terrorists to vote.

“I believe even if they are in jail, they’re paying the price to society, that should not take away their inherent American right to participate in our democracy,” he said recently.

What about those Americans permanently disenfranchised because they were killed by those Bernie wants to give the right to vote? Last I looked the right not to be murdered is an ‘inherent American right’ too.

Elizabeth Warren 

Everyone’s favorite Native American wannabe recently proposed forgiving the student loan debt of 95 percent of those owing on college loans.

When announcing her plan Lieawatha said it “helps millions of families and removes a weight that’s holding back our economy.”

But wait, does she speak with a forked tongue – again?

The Brookings Institution reports under Sitting Baloney’s plan, the majority of those benefiting from the loan forgiveness program would be the nation’s highest earners.

Specifically, the top 20 percent of the highest income households would receive about 27 percent of all annual savings, and the top 40 percent about 66 percent.

The bottom 20 percent of borrowers by income would get only 4 percent of the savings.

Why would Pocahontas devise a plan favoring the richest students? And what of those students saddled with debt before the launch of the Pocahontas Penury Plan? Will they be eligible for ‘tuition reparations’ or Starbucks gift cards?

Kamala Harris 

California senator Kamala Harris said at a recent town hall sponsored by CNN (Collusion News Network):

“There are people in Washington, D.C., supposed leaders, who have failed to have the courage to reject a false choice which suggests you’re either in favor of the second amendment or you want to take everyone’s guns away.”

She then promised that if Congress failed to act on gun control in her first 100 days as president, she would sign an executive order overriding the Second Amendment and forcibly take guns away from those she doesn’t think should have them.

Read my lips: When a Democrat says we need ‘common sense’ regulations and ‘reasonable gun safety laws’, that always means banning guns.

Only Kamala Harris or any of the other 300 Democrats running for president in 2020 would support the rights of prison felons and terrorists over the rights of legal gun owners guaranteed in the Second Amendment of the Constitution.

Couple their enthusiasm for prisoners’ voting rights with their publicly expressed support for infanticide, the Green New Deal and open borders and voila – Democrats have a winning platform!

Go and run on that platform Democrats – America will love you for it!

The Theft of America’s Soul – Book Review

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist, a social scientist or the pseudo-scientists giving us just 12 years to change our carbon footprint to know that America is a much different country than it was 60 years ago.

The proliferation of abortion on-demand, opioid and drug addiction, suicide, alcoholism, divorce, mass shootings, gang violence, sexual slavery, rape, and child endangerment cases are just symptoms of a larger problem.

There is also society’s indifference of transgender and gay lifestyles, and alarming increases in pedophilia, bestiality, and Internet porn.

Are the social ills above symptoms of an even greater problem? Has America lost its soul?

Best selling author and patriarch of Duck Dynasty Phil Robertson thinks so, but like an Old Testament prophet warning the Israelites to repent and seek God’s forgiveness, in The Theft of America’s Soul (Thomas Nelson Publishing, 224 pages), Robertson doesn’t sugarcoat his prescription for what ails America and how to fix it.

Robertson is as direct as a GPS coordinate and unapologetic about his faith as the apostle Paul.  And in today’s walk-on-eggshells, hope not to offend, safe spaces environment, its like a breath of fresh air.

Robertson’s self-help book for America is divided into 10 primary chapters and a summary 11th chapter with his typically pointed observations.

The 10 primary chapters list a commonly held cultural lie and an absolute truth. For example:

Lie: God is Dead/Truth: God is not dead and never will be;

Lie: Truth is Relative/Truth: There is absolute truth and it comes from God;

Lie: Sex is for self-gratification/Truth: God created sexuality for His purposes and our good.

Robertson’s book is sprinkled with interesting anecdotes (including his personal experiences before finding God), fascinating observations and the politically incorrect bluntness that got him temporarily suspended from the A&E Network a few years back.

Brick by brick, the Duck Commander tears down the wall of deceit and duplicity secularism has built around American culture the past several decades and offers simple, proven truths that can bring back American harmony, purpose and unity.

To illustrate how pointed Robertson is when it comes to reaching others about Christ, he recalls in his book sharing the plan of salvation with Donald Trump for 15 minutes during the 2016 campaign, and reminds the president in its pages of his offer to baptize him.

“Mr. Trump, my offer to baptize you into Christ still stands.  You ready to move on it?”

Non-believers reading the book need to know that Robertson isn’t judging people, but rather warning how alluring temptation can be, how evil sneaks up on the unaware and ruins lives – like it almost torpedoed his marriage when his wife Miss Kay left with their three boys before his conversion because of his “drinking and whoring.”

Christians reading the book need to sit up straight because Robertson bluntly lays most of the blame for society rejecting God at churchgoers feet.

“The church has forgotten its purpose, forgotten we’re supposed to be carrying the truth of the Almighty out to the world,” he writes in Chapter 9 where he argues against church participation being kept separate from our public lives.

“We’ve withdrawn from government, allowed our faith to be squeezed out of public schools, let our voices be silenced in the workplace. See? Under pressure of the advancing secular age, we retreated to our church buildings as society around us descended into godless chaos.”

Phil Robertson may look and sound like an Old Testament prophet, but as someone who has never watched a single episode of Duck Dynasty or ever even been duck hunting, to me he’s a fearless and devout Christian who loves God, his family and his country.

He has witnessed and preached in prisons, sporting goods stores, to political candidates and Duck Dynasty fans and baptized hundreds of people calling on him at home.

God bless Phil Robertson and his courage in standing up for God and traditional American values!

Democrats Double Down on Stupid

Since the Mueller report shipwrecked in Collusionville last month, the Democrat party is behaving more absurdly than usual.

The growing number of libs acting loony has exceeded the available life preservers of reason and logic aboard the S.S. Stupid.

Conservative commentator and political activist Candace Owens was recently accused of being a white nationalist by California Democrat representative Ted Lieu.

Earth to Ted:  Candace Owens is black.

Trump administration senior presidential advisor Stephen Miller was accused of being a Nazi by Minnesota Democrat representative Ilham Omar.

This was undoubtedly a surprise to his parents and rabbi since Miller is Jewish.

And that’s not all Omar said recently.  Last month she claimed before a Muslim gathering that Muslims lost their civil liberties after 9-11 because “some people did something.”

That’s like an American Cousin patron at the Ford Theater in 1865 whining about a ticket refund because all the hubbub about Lincoln being shot ruined the show.

Omar said last month at a Council on American Islamic Relations fundraiser it was hard to say what they did, or why they did it, but random Muslims woke up one morning and decided to do what they did and, because of that, “all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.”

It takes chutzpah for a Muslim activist to play the victim card when recalling the horrific deaths of almost 3,000 people in the worst terrorism incident in American history.  Not to mention describing that tragedy as a mere annoyance akin to the neighbor’s dog barking all night.

Finally, in a hearing of the House Banking Committee April 10, committee chair Maxine Waters asked some of the nation’s bankers to testify about what they were doing to help college students being crushed by student loan debt.

Apparently no one told Mad Max that the administration of student loans was nationalized by the Obama administration.

In 2010.

Meaning the banks Mad Max wanted to castigate for student loan debt have not offered student loans for a decade.

That would seem to be important information for the chairman of a committee overseeing the nation’s banks to know.

As we’ve known for many years now though, Mad Max is in serious need of a capital infusion in her smarts account. When it comes to truth, facts, and commonsense, she’s running a responsibility deficit and her accountability credit is gravely overdrawn.

Enough! Close the Border – Today

Enough!

Enough of invaders from Mexico and points south crashing our borders and overburdening our immigration system.

Enough of asking Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador for help in enforcing our immigration laws and stemming the flow of illegals heading to Norteamérica.

Enough of indifferent, lackadaisical Democrats and Republicans refusing to do their jobs and protect our borders but then block the president’s efforts when he tries doing his.

Enough of presidential threats to close the border sometime in the future if the flow of illegals rushing north doesn’t stop soon.

Enough of the immigration madness mess. Here’s a simple 3-point plan to help force immediate action on our southern border.

Close the border – NOW!

Closing the border will get the immediate attention of everyone involved and stress the seriousness of the situation.

Undoubtedly it will cause short term economic pain and incessant whining from different quarters, but that temporary pain and inconvenience will be nothing compared to the long term costs and consequences of housing, supporting, educating and policing hundreds of thousands of people here illegally.

Keep the border closed until…

…Congress works out a feasible, pragmatic immigration solution.  Congress grumbles about what the president is proposing and insists immigration policy is their responsibility, so let them take responsibility (for a change) and craft an immigration plan that puts America and its taxpayers first.

If Congress wants open borders, then let them craft a bill saying that and face the voters in 2020.

Petition the Supreme Court for certiorari before judgment

Certiorari before judgment permits the Supreme Court to expedite a case by accepting the case for review before an appellate court has decided it. Our immigration emergency is serious enough to qualify for immediate review by the Supreme Court rather than taking months to weave its way through the legal slalom course of lower courts.

Let federal judges in Hawaii and Washington state who have thwarted Trump’s attempts to address the border emergency issue defend their legal reasoning, and cite legal precedents justifying how un-elected judges forcibly stymied efforts by previous presidents attempting to deal with illegal immigration.

Isn’t it odd that Congress has appropriated millions of dollars in border protection over the years for countries all over the globe, but is unwilling to draft legislation now to defend a porous border in its own homeland?

It’s enough to make you wonder if the drug cartels aren’t the only ones making money off America’s lax immigration security.

Thanks for reading Dean Riffs. Welcome to all those who love American liberty, free enterprise, and who believe God has blessed our country. For those who believe free speech is hate speech, move on – there’s nothing here for you to see.

March Madness and Mueller Hysteria

Last week millions enjoyed wall to wall basketball for four days but Sunday afternoon brought an extra bonus for political junkies.

The icing on the March Madness cake was topped Sunday afternoon with this cherry of just desserts: a stake in the heart of the Democrats’ deluded illusion of Russian collusion.

For those who follow the news, the ending of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s 675-day, $25 million-plus investigation shall forever be known as “Mueller’s March Madness.”

Mueller’s diary of supposed Trump collusion and obstruction findings was revised to an Attention Deficit Disorder-friendly four-page summary by Attorney General William Barr and emphasized what people who never watch CNN or MSNBC have known all along – there is no there there.

Shocked and stunned Democrats, the media mongrels that have fed this impeachment pablum to their duped audiences, and Hollyweird elitists who fantasized about playing a starring role in the made for TV movie about Trump’s removal from office, are suddenly left with nothing more than blubbery tears and impeachment fantasies.

Bette Midler was “sick at heart” with an “uncontrollable rage.” Cher remained in denial about Trump’s crime, corruption and ties to Russia.  Actor Sean Astin mocked Mueller for his seeming inability “to indict a ham sandwich.”

How unhinged was Hollyweird’s reaction to the news? Rosie O’Donnell was reconsidering her earlier promise of getting a Mueller tattoo and Chelsea Handler confessed “my sexual attraction to him (Mueller) is in peril.”

No doubt Mueller is losing sleep at this news.

Media pundits suffered, too. Rachel Maddow interrupted her vacation to cry on air.  Chris Matthews was livid.  Bill Maher doubled down on Trump being a traitor and “a whiny bitch.”

CNN’s Chris Cillizza argued Mueller’s milestone “is the end of the beginning, not the beginning of the end.”

This seems appropriate since liberals are already chasing their ridiculous impeachment tale in circles – like the mongrels they are.

But guess what? Democrat dyspepsia is about to get worse and here’s why: Trump now holds all the cards.

The president can declassify the FISA documents. He can go public with all the documents the Justice Department and FBI refused to release.

He can and should ignore congressional subpoenas and requests for testimony and documents already investigated by Mueller.

In short, he can now go on offense against all the swamp creatures that have hounded and persecuted him, his staff and his family members the past two years.

The hunted is now the hunter. There is nowhere those attempting a coup of a duly elected president can hide.

Trump knows it. His supporters know it.

Soon Deep State players like John Brennan and James Comey will know it too.

The S.S. Democrat is Sinking

Mark the week of March 4 on your calendars as the day the Democrat party hit a political iceberg – a titanic one.

First, bartender turned socialist broken record Alexandria Or Else Communista continued her dogged opposition to cow farts and the banning of airplanes outlined in her climate change fantasy New Green Deal.

More recently “The Boss” tagged Ronald Reagan as a racist “screwing over working class Americans,” said Americans without jobs are left to die, and just today accused the CEO of Wells-Fargo of financing human rights abuses and environmental disasters.

Next, Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar, the Somali-American that moved to Minneapolis’ Little Mogadishu district as a teenager, continued to inadvertently stump for President Trump and Republicans recapturing the House with anti-Semitic slurs that would make Nazis dead and alive proud.

Her comment last week that Jews supporting Israel have dual allegiance was met with immediate expulsion from the influential House Foreign Affairs Committee and unanimous censor by her fellow Democrats.

Just kidding.

Actually San Fran Nan and the Democrat leadership folded faster than a circus tent in a F-5 tornado.

Not only was Omar not mentioned by name in the bill her hateful words forced the Dems to write, she was allowed to help write the legislation condemning hate in all its hateful forms.

In short, H. Res 183 “Encourages all public officials to confront the reality of anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, racism, and other forms of bigotry, as well as historical struggles against them.”

It’s doubtful that this scatter gun condemnation of hate will comfort nervous Jewish constituents since it was their allegiance and theirs alone she questioned.

The bill also warns the following forms of hate will not be tolerated:

“Whereas white supremacists in the United States have exploited and continue to exploit bigotry and weaponize hate for political gain, targeting traditionally persecuted peoples, including African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders and other people of color, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs, the LGBTQ community, immigrants, and others with verbal attacks, incitement, and violence.”

Whew – that’ll certainly come in handy when those bigoted Southern Baptists clinging to their guns and Bibles spread their intolerance and hate during an anti-Islamic jihad call to prayer in Everytown, USA.

Or when fascist Christian bakers refuse to cater a LGBTQ wedding between a visual and hearing challenged one-legged transgender ex-nun marrying zir’s German Shepherd-Shih Tzu mix.

With Democrat firebrands like Omar and Occasionally-Cognizant spewing such sophistry, #Trump 2020 is all but guaranteed.
