Lightfoot Blames Indiana for City’s Violence

It took Windy City Mayor Lori Lightfoot less than four months to shoot off her mouth and emulate Barack Obama’s governing habit of blaming everyone else for her administration’s ineptitude and failings.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot

Lightfoot is understandably under the gun to bring order to her besieged city, but it was still shocking to see her shooting from the hip last week and going off half-cocked on Twitter. 

SPOILER ALERT: In a tweeted reply to Texas Senator Ted Cruz, she blamed Indiana’s elected officials for Chicago leading the nation in murders the past several years.

Son of a gun – it must be a new form of statistical analysis incomprehensible to us lesser folks who believe the Second Amendment is sacrosanct.

“60% of illegal firearms recovered in Chicago from outside IL – mostly from states dominated by coward Republicans like you who refuse to enact commonsense gun legislation,” she tweeted in response to Cruz.

“Commonsense gun legislation” is liberal-speak meaning the best way to protect people from the shooting gallery of Chicago’s streets is to disarm law abiding citizens of the means of protecting themselves.

She’s right in that this would send criminals using illegally-held guns a message, but we doubt it’s the message she intends.

The problem with Lightfoot’s logic is that the top 5 American cities in gun homicides are already gun-free zones and all have Democrat mayors:  Chicago, Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York City, and Los Angeles.

And contrary to her argument, Chicago is not the only gun-free metropolis adjacent to a GOP-controlled state.  Typical of a politician, she jumped the gun in pointing the finger elsewhere for her inability to bring order to the chaos she inherited from predecessor Rahm Emanuel.

I’m just shooting in the dark here, but might Chicago’s gun violence be triggered by other sociological factors; factors like fatherless households, rotten public schools, and ridiculous trial sentencing by Democrat administrations that allow gangbangers and violent criminals back on the streets before the barrels of their illegally-held guns have cooled?

Meanwhile, liberals like Lori Lightfoot will stick to their guns on arguing against our Second Amendment rights and point gun fingers of blame at others while the tragic Chicago death toll continues to mount.

Seattle’s Poop Problem ‘Has To Go’

It seems like just yesterday that Seattle was the crown jewel of the Pacific Northwest.  Now it’s like a public outhouse with an evergreen scent.

Seattle isn’t alone with what to do about their sidewalk doo-doo.  The city is still Number 2 to Scat Francisco in brownouts – so to speak.

The first step in Alcoholic Anonymous’ 12-Step program is to admit you have a problem.

No sh$%, Sherlock.  If you need a reminder, just check your shoes around Seattle’s downtown courthouse at Third and James .

Seattle City Council members have admitted they have a serious poo miscue, but the obvious answer as to what to do about their doo-doo is being flushed down the commode of commonsense because of – wait for it – racism.

Seattle Council member Larry Gossett, who is black, opposes the idea of power washing street feces “because it brought back images of the use of hoses against civil-rights activists.”

Let’s recap:  Seattle is allowing the homeless and others with mental health issues to use downtown streets as personal open air toilets.  That’s dumb.

Then the city avoids using the most obvious and efficient means of cleaning up the problem short term so as not to offend anyone from regrettable actions half a century ago.  That’s dumber.

What could be even dumber?

Wasting time and resources on a plastic straw ban while requiring citizens to step around urine puddles and piles of feces on their way to and from work.

It’s no wonder that famed psychiatrist Frazier Crane left for greener, less brown pastures.  Seattle and many Left Coast cities have gone bat guano loco.

Just say no to poopie streets, Seattle.  Here’s a complimentary hashtag:

Pet Peeves Deserve Time and Attention Too

Sixty-eight percent of American households, or 85 million families, own a pet according to a 2017-18 National Pet Owners survey. 

Considerably more families than that feed what are commonly known as “pet peeves.” 

Unlike most pets, pet peeves don’t usually require spaying or neutering, although the pet peeve owner may require some other form of professional treatment.  Without taking specific preventive action when an owner’s “pet” is peeved however, howling at the moon or leaving little “surprises” in the neighbor’s flowers can be expected. 

There is no law how many pet peeves an owner can have, but there appears to be a co-relation between advancing age and the number of pet peeves one can successfully manage. 

For instance, below are three of my pet peeves… 

Pet Peeve #1 

The phrase “It is what it is” is like fingernails on my mental chalkboard. Whatever “it” is, logically “it is what it is” because what else could “it” be?! What it isn’t?!  

Does the validity of the phrase, “It is what it is” depend upon what the meaning of the word “is,” is? What if “it” isn’t what it is? If that’s the case who can we appeal to and does it entitle us to a reward or reparation? 

Pet Peeve #2

The phrase “people of color.”  As astute readers have been reminded ad nauseum by “The Squawk Squad,” all four of the loquacious quartet are “women of color.”  

News flash: Every person is a “person of color,” and last I looked “white” is still a color.  

When Palestinian princess Rashida Tlaib or Minnesomolian Ilhan Omar whine their policies are under attack because they are women of color, couldn’t Tennessee’s junior senator Marsha Blackburn or Wyoming Representative Lynn Cheney say the same thing when their policies are criticized? 

Does darker skin pigment mean your legislation is “lily white” and can’t be criticized?  Conversely, does being white mean your ideas are automatically offensive to “colorful” woke legislators Who makes the rules in this game? Crayola? 

Pet Peeve #3  After every mass shooting (in Philadelphia it was while the shooting was still going on) Democrats never miss an opportunity to call for tighter restrictions on the gun rights guaranteed to us in the Second Amendment.

In other words, they seek to punish, inconvenience, and make law abiding gun owners less safe due to the illegal actions of a solitary shooter.

Enacting new gun restrictions after every mass shooting is like requiring all licensed drivers take a remedial driving class, renew their driver’s license and pay more for their auto insurance after every hit and run fatality.

The fact that almost all of the mass shootings take place in gun-free zones should be a clue that regardless of gun restrictions, the perps planning to shoot could care less about gun laws – thereby nullifying the “let’s-pass-another-guns-restriction” law. 

Even worse, restricting the rights of legal and legitimate gun owners gives those contemplating mass murder more power and incentive because it is less likely anyone will be shooting back – thereby nullifying the “lets-make-it-harder-to-buy-guns-legally” law. 

These are three pet peeves that wake me in the middle of the night wanting out. What are yours?

Trump Behind “Hairy” Conspiracy

It’s only mid-August and conspiracy theories are in full bloom in the nation’s capitol. 

The “Gotcha” speculations are so profuse they outnumber human droppings in Nancy Botoxi’s Scat Francisco district.  Someone should create a spreadsheet to keep track.

Most recently is Jeffrey Epstein’s dubious “suicide.” The week before was the left blaming President Trump for the tragic mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton. 

Ongoing is the spurious impeachment proceedings by unhinged Democrats in the House of Representatives, both the “formal” and “informal” variety. 

I asked my Android personal digital assistant to define “informal impeachment proceeding” and it displayed an image of Jerry Nadler in Bermuda shorts sipping a Mai Tai.

Finally, there is Episode 4, Act 3, Scene 2 in the Russian Collusion Illusion.

Today there’s another “hairy” conspiracy that has so far gone unreported, and Dean Riffs has the exclusive details.

Donald Trump will soon be accused by rival presidential campaigns, the mainstream media and the loopy staff of Morning Joe and Rachel Maddow of “scripting” front runner Joe Biden’s gaffes through a nefarious new mode of sensory processing disorder.

Code named “Joe Blows,” the diabolical sensory processor will be blamed for a string of recent Biden verbal blunders, including:

We choose unity over division. We choose science over fiction. We choose truth over facts…”  

Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids…”

Those kids in Parkland came to see me when I was Vice-President.” NOTE: Parkland shooting happened in 2018 – Joe Biden’s term as Vice-President was over January 20, 2017.

Using a cutting edge process pioneered by Russian intelligence, reportedly Orange Man Bad has managed to implant a form of nanotechnology into Biden’s hair plugs that allow the president and his campaign team to inject pre-written messaging into Biden’s speeches.

The result:  the Democrat front-runner sounds like a senile, over-the-hill presidential candidate rather than the charismatic, energetic, hair-sniffing dynamo he really is.

The reaction from the president’s 2020 Democrat chew toy opponents was immediate:

“This is a very dangerous president who makes Americans’ hair stand on end.”  – Spartacus

“If you ask me, he’s a racist, a white supremacist and a bully.  The president’s candidacy is hanging by a hair.”  – Robert Francis O’Rourke from his skateboard

“Look, I don’t want to split hairs and it gives me no pleasure to say this, but I think all of the evidence out there suggests that we have a president who is a racist, a xenophobe, and has just managed to avoid impeachment by a hair.” – Bernie “Back in the USSR” Sanders

“He’s changing the conversation, and if we allow him to do that we will tear our hair out rather than focus on real solutions for real Americans.” – Beto O’Rourke again, but this time standing on a diner counter in someone’s chili and crackers.

High level sources reveal that Trump got the idea of hijacking Biden’s thought processes from son Baron after father and son watched Bruce Almighty together.

Democrat Presidential Candidate Sale!

Samantha Socialist knew it was time to replace her 10-year-old Prius when an Amish farmer flipped her off one morning while passing her in his overloaded hay wagon.

Upon arriving at work Samantha borrowed a copy of Auto-Traitor from her friend Bart, a female Betty transitioning to a male Bart.  Prior to being Betty, Bart/Betty fancied xi/xis self as Bumble Bee or Optimus Prime of the Transformers depending on zi/zis’s available wardrobe that day. 

Both Sam and Bart/Betty worked on the assembly line at the Green Splice environmental plant recycling pixels and fonts from politically conservative websites that had been banned by social media’s Big Three.

Within minutes of skimming the Auto-Traitor Sam located the ride she thought would be perfect.  The Tom Dyer Dynamo was a completely green hybrid that ran on grass clippings, rainbow wishes and UV-protected solar power.

After work Sam buzzed down to the Sanders-Warren Commie Car Corner to kick the tires and meet salesman C. Booker, whose name tag for some reason read “Spartacus.”

Spartacus proudly walked her through the car’s impressive features, including its 200-unicorn-powered engine, its patented open borders acceleration technology; the slave reparations all-wheel drive, and its green new deal emissions standards.

“The manufacturer’s warranty also includes free handouts to any undocumented immigrants who carpool with you or you help sneak over the border.  The handouts include food stamps, medical care, housing vouchers, abortion on demand and free public education for the little ones,” Booker said in a rhetorical flourish. 

“Cages for the kids are available in the EX package,” he added triumphantly.

After test driving the Dynamo it was time for the part Sam dreaded the most: haggling over the price.   Much to her relief co-owner Bernie Sanders rescued her and told her to put away her filthy green money.

“At this dealership we believe driving a car is a human right – not something to profit from,” he said in an accent that strangely reminded her of Seinfeld writer and producer Larry David.

“Driving an environmentally-friendly car should be recognized as a human right, not a privilege,” he intoned in front of an American flag.  “Every man, woman and child in our country should be able to access the transportation they need regardless of their income,” he added emphatically.

Smiling, Sam thanked him but there was something she had to know.  “How do you stay in business giving away free cars and stuff?”

In one of the scariest experiences of her life, Bernie smiled at her for what seemed an eternity.  Thankfully, his smile eventually disappeared and he replied in earnest, “Don’t you worry about us; we’ll be fine.  However, we are living in a nation and in a world which worships the acquisition of money and great wealth.

“I don’t think that is the country you should be living in.”

Socialist Scout Troop #666 Cookie Sale

Everywhere you look there are visuals of the Squawk Squad doing what they do best – squawking about pet peeves that they whine are endangering our constitutional liberties.

Here is a partial list:

  • Trump is acting like Hitler;
  • Trump is racist and is enabling racism;
  • Undocumented children are being held in cages;
  • Border Patrol and ICE are acting like Nazi concentration camp guards;
  • The country hasn’t passed the New Green Deal because Americans are racists;
  • Boycotting Israel is the same as boycotting Nazi Germany;
  • We need a $20 minimum wage to afford milk and eggs;
  • Taxpayer funded abortions should be made available to all illegal immigrants.

The last place I expected to see the Squirrely Squawk Squad was fundraising at a roadside stand but as we all know, these socialistic gal-pals will appear anywhere there are cameras and a crowd..

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was ready for her closeup – waving her arms like a loon, spouting economic gibberish and mauling World War II analogies.

Ilhan Omar was fantasizing about being Audrey Hepburn in a hijab and cursing Israel and President Trump.

Rashida Tlaib was stomping around shouting epithets and saying she was going to “impeach” the motherf#%$&#! every 10 words.

Ayanna Pressley – was denouncing black faces that don’t sound black and brown faces that don’t sound brown and white faces who always sound racist.

In their “Kookie” tent each member of the Scurrilous Squad had their own personalized cookie they were promoting:

Alexandria Opportunist-Coronado was pushing a graham cracker cookie covered in chocolate and marshmallow because she’s always wanting s’more and s’more of our money.

Incestuous Ilhan Omar was peddling camel caramel chocolate chip cookies (Don’t ask about the camel ingredient.)  She said cookies for Jewish and Christian customers came with a “Somali surprise” in lieu of chocolate chips, and a hint of sea salt reflecting her spicy Somali personality.

Rashida #$%#%^! Tlaib favored a tangy lemon-iced cookie powdered with hummus, olive oil and Palestinian pine nuts.  Each cookie contained a fortune: a favorite Tlaib Palestinian epithet.

Aryan Pressley raved about her skinny cookie which was a round, mint-flavored cookie coated in chocolate. Pressley’s cookie had a special ingredient:  a Boston Bean extract that conjured hallucinations that make Pressley sound like Oprah Winfrey when speaking in public.

Cookie prices were available in three tiers:

Undocumented immigrants – FREE
Brothers and Sisters of Color – Whatever you can afford
White skinned and tanned Caucasians – $5 per cookie or $65 a dozen.  NO CRACKER CHECKS!

The Mob Squad sold all their cookies before noon when a PBS limousine spotted them, bought all their inventory and announced plans to give single boxes away in their next fundraiser to donors pledging $500 or more.

RU Smarter Than the Squawk Squad?

Are you smarter than a frosh congressperson?

Four progressive congresswomen who believe their mandate is to continue the Obama legacy of “transforming America” are pushing their party so far to the left, it’s in danger of reshaping the Democrat Party as a keto-free Cuba (low carb savings with lots of high fat government spending.)

  • Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a former Brooklyn bartender who became a socialist because she likes using social media;
  • Rashida Talib, a Palestinian from Michigan who can out-cuss the entire U.S. Navy and pledged to impeach President Trump her first day in Congress, and;
  • Ayanna Pressley, the newest squad member who says we need to beg forgiveness from those coming here illegally for detaining them during processing.

True or false: Minnesota Democrat Representative Representative Omar, who allegedly committed immigration fraud by marrying her gay brother, along with passport fraud, campaign fraud and tax fraud by claiming to be married to someone else while married to her brother, recently warned President Donald Trump, “I am fighting corruption in OUR country?”

Nike Couldn’t Fill Betsy Ross’s Shoes

Colin Kaepernick may have once been a NFL superstar quarterback, but since 2016 and his refusal to stand for the national anthem, he is better known as a dissenting American “satriot.”

What is a “satriot?” A word I made up like Kaepernick and his ilk make up grievances.  A satriot is someone who think of themselves as an American patriot but they don’t have a leg to stand on – so to speak.

In other words, they “sit out” from participating in any activity that may be seen as patriotic and celebrates America.

For example, standing for the Star Spangled Banner.  Or respectfully observing patriotic holidays like the Fourth of July that honor America and give us reasons to unite as one people.

Another example of satriotism would be wearing socks that portray police officers as pigs.

Kaepernick recently took an image association test and Dean Riffs was lucky enough to obtain the results of the only Scat Francisco QB to lose a Super Bowl.

When shown an image of thousands of people standing for the Star Spangled Banner, Krapernick said he saw,  “Police oppressing black people and other people of color.”

Next Kraperniche was shown the original American flag consisting of 13 stars against a deep blue circle.  The former NFL QB who was benched after going 1-10 in his last season said he saw a racist symbol associated with slavery.

Considering Betsy Ross, the flag’s creator, was a devout Quaker, no one will mistake Kap Kangaroo as an American historian.  Quakers openly opposed slavery and Ross was known throughout Philadelphia as a fervent abolitionist.

Finally, Colinoscopy was shown an image of former slave and famous abolitionist Frederick Douglass meeting with President Abraham Lincoln in the White House.

“Sellout,” was the term Kaepernike used to describe Douglass. “Uncle Tom!” “Vanilla Ice wannabe!!” he spat out.

So here’s the deal: Nike pulled a holiday-themed shoe featuring a nice image of Americana based on the subjective opinion of a social justice soldier whose sole branding strategy is controversy and grievance.

Where thousands of potential customers saw a nostalgic, patriotic special-edition pair of kicks,  many will now view the Betsy Ross flag pulled by “woke” Nike as a controversial symbol of racism and malice – thanks to Nike’s multi-million dollar spokesperson who sees minority oppression and social injustice wherever he looks.

Nice job, colic Collin.

What will Nike and their whiny spokesperson do when neo-Nazis, KKK members or normal Americans who they like to call “white nationalists” wear the Nike swoosh,  the “Just Do It” shirts and assorted Nike sneakers out in public? Or God forbid, at a Trump rally!

Are they going to give those they disagree with millions of dollars in free publicity by crying foul over the misappropriation of Nike apparel?

It will be karma to see them freak out when the Nike shoe is on the other foot.

Diversity is Fool’s Gold Patriotism

What’s the opposite of American exceptionalism? The Democrat party.

Whoops, that was a Freudian slip. What I meant to say was that the identity politics Democrats practice is antithetical to American exceptionalism.

For years liberals and progressives have preached the gospel of inclusivity and diversity. (I mention both groups to be more inclusive and diverse.)

From the left’s skewed perspective, what makes America great are our differences:  race, skin pigment, religion, biological gender (real or imagined), gender identity, (always imagined if different from biological gender), sexual orientation (often misguided), national origin and age .

On the other hand, conservatives believe subordinating those qualities that make us different and melding them into a synthesis of Americanism is what makes our country exceptional.

In a word, unity is the preferred ideal and the embodiment of American exceptionalism.

Having people of different backgrounds and ethnicities focus on a shared cause and purpose has always been the American way.  This is often referred to as the melting pot.

Liberals view America not as a melting pot, but as a smelting vat.

To listen to their messaging, the left believes celebrating our differences and favoring various groups over others is what makes America unique.

They regurgitate hackneyed responses accentuating those differences -Trump hates brown people and uses Central American children as kiddie caddies at his golf resorts – to create enthusiasm with Democrat voters but there’s a problem: their pandering is fool’s gold patriotism.

Comrade Bernie Sanders wants Medicare for all, free college tuition and forgiveness of over a trillion dollars in student debt.  Spartacus Booker and Kamala “Tupak” Harris want slave reparations.

Fauxahontas Warren wants tax reparations for gays because gay marriage was only legalized a few years ago.

Pete “No Mas Pence” Buttigieg wants to reverse the ban on transgenders in the military and “Hair Sniffer” Biden wants to legalize naps in the workplace.

The Democrat primary is becoming a game of who can give away more tax dollars to satisfy the most “gimmes” with their hands-out.

The problem for 2020 Democrat primary candidates though is there aren’t enough reparations, quotas, exemptions and set-asides to feed all the different tribes they’re hustling.

By the time the “gimmes” figure that out, the 2020 Democrat clown circus is going to implode on its own combustion.

Ocasio-Cortez Just Keeps Digging

Maybe Alexandria Occasionally- Conscious thinks she’s helping create shovel ready jobs, but every week she demonstrates again and again that she never knows when to stop digging.

The loquacious and polarizing acronym with two legs and a big mouth has spewed more nonsense her first six months in office than most congress critters utter their first two terms.

The latest from the woman who may have singlehandedly ended blonde jokes forever was equating detention facilities for migrants to “concentration camps.”

“The United States is running concentration camps on our southern border and that is exactly what they are. They are concentration camps. And, um, if that doesn’t bother you, I don’t, I don’t know, I like, we can have, okay whatever,” she concluded in her typical kamikaze syntax.

She then doubled down on her ignorance and insensitivity to Holocaust victims by tweeting this: “And for the shrieking Republicans who don’t know the difference: concentration camps are not the same as death camps. Concentration camps are considered by experts as ‘the mass detention of civilians without trial.’ And that’s exactly what this administration is doing.”

Let’s talk about what the congresswoman who thinks the Electoral College should be tuition free is doing when she compares border security to concentration camps:

*She’s insinuating the temporary incarceration of people voluntarily entering our country illegally before processing is the moral equivalent of shipping millions of people to their death in crematoriums for their faith.

*She’s insulting the families of Holocaust victims and survivors with an analogy that’s cruel and degrading.

*She’s demeaning border patrol agents, customs officials and ICE agents by comparing them to Nazi guards.

*She’s smearing the American people as callous and uncomprehending as to what’s happening at the border.

*She’s demonstrating yet again how obtuse and oblivious she is about history, language and the border crisis she has helped create because, like, she doesn’t believe in like, borders, okay?

If ignorance of the difference between a detention center and a concentration camp isn’t bad enough, the New York Congresswoman who’s IQ test came back negative seems blissfully unaware that any mistreatment of migrant families at the border rests squarely at the feet of her own party.

House Republicans have tried 15 times this year to secure $4.5 billion dollars specifically to “feed and shelter migrant families and unaccompanied children, fund urgent medical care and transportation, and pay for growing overtime cost for DHS men and women on the frontlines.”

Democrats have refused every time to provide the requested funding.

Memo to ACO:  Heaven has a wall and a big pearly gate, but hell is spacious and has open borders.  Just sayin’…
