Here Are Just A Few Of America’s Most Dangerous, Disingenuous, Dimmest Screwups

When I was a child my mother warned me about people who lie, exaggerate, steal, take advantage of others, capitalize on the misery of unfortunates, and say and do stupid things. “Avoid them,” she said. “They’re toxic and people like that will not do you any good, just the opposite.”

Whenever I watch the current crop of Democrat Party presidential candidates, members of Congress, Antifa, environmental extremists, Hollywood’s “political scientists,” the media,  educators, etc. I can’t help but recall my mother’s advice.

In no particular order I’ve listed folks my mom would have preferred I avoid. This is MY list, not one I plucked off the Internet or out of a book or magazine. To avoid becoming too lengthy I left a lot of folks off who belong. You may notice the list is loaded with liberals, which is as it should be. Hillary and Bill Clinton didn’t make it because, well….they’re just too obvious. Everybody already knows they are the two most corrupt and deceitful people ever unleashed on the American public.

Next week I’ll list the Nassau County scoundrels who, through their words and actions, damage our neighborhoods, schools, businesses, and local culture. If you’d like to add a name of a local for consideration please email it to me at davidnscott@bellsouth.net and tell me why you think that person is screwing things up locally and I’ll consider it. I won’t mention your name unless you insist I do so. However, please do not send me the name of a neighbor you dislike because he violated your HOA rules by planting corn in his front yard or threw a party and didn’t invite you; someone whose kid bullied yours at school; or the gal that hit on your husband at the PTA meeting. This is not a forum for personal vendettas. I’m looking for public figures that you believe are making a mess out of our local community and why.

After that I’ll compile a list of those locals who are contributing to building a strong, vibrant community, and again would like your nominees.

Here are my national ones — all low hanging fruit — that my mom would prefer I avoid and would not want me to invite to Sunday lunch:

James Comey, the disgraced former FBI chief, would be at the top of my mom’s list. This is a guy that was supposed to be the most honest man in America, but who Americans of all political persuasions equally despise because they believe he betrayed them as well as the good folks that work in the bureau he headed. The Democrats hate him because they say his public comments on the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s emails tilted the 2016 election against her. Conservatives and Republicans hate him because his corrupt three-year phony-baloney Russian collusion-instigated investigation of the Trump Administration slowed Trump’s agenda and cost taxpayers millions. The State Department’s IG report has proven Comey and his co-conspirators to be dishonest, arrogant, pompous liars, and narcissistic jerks who blemished the FBI’s reputation and proved harmful to all Americans. He’s a despicable person who should be prosecuted for his crimes and may yet be.

Beto O’Rourke, this arm-flapping bizarro from Texas, is an unemployed politician who appears to struggle with severe mental health issues. This whacko Democrat presidential wannabe of Irish decent keeps apologizing for being white and wants you to think he’s really a Mexican. He says that Trump is a “white supremacist” and that all Americans are not only inherently racist, but responsible for world-wide climate change damage. He offers no evidence, no facts beyond his own interpretation of Trump’s comments, nor can he backup his stupid racism or climate change comments with any facts. He says if elected he’ll tear down all border barriers between Mexico and the U.S., provide citizenship and healthcare to the millions of illegals currently in the U.S. and those on the way.  He shamelessly used the tragic shootings in El Paso as a fund-raising campaign platform. O’Rourke is also advocating a government “buy-back” program for guns. I’ve never purchased a firearm from the federal government, have you? How can it buy-back something it didn’t sell? O’Rourke, who fills the need for an idiot in every village, is a deranged ghoul who needs to be on a leash or locked in a padded room.

Bernie Sanders is another Democrat primary contender who requires serious mental observation. This bug-eyed delusional Ebenezer Scrooge doppelganger, who talks like he gargles with razor blades, is a Brooklyn-born communist who never held a full-time job until he was 40 years old and that was when he was elected mayor of Burlington, VT. He’s lived off the taxpayer ever since and is now worth millions of dollars and boasts three houses. Go figure! He resembles the gruff old-time New York seltzer man, bellowing from his hunched over position that if elected everything in America will be free – well, except its citizens.

Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren, Cory “Spartacus” Booker, Joe “Sleepy” Biden are no different than the loopy Sanders and O’Rourke along with the other 20 or so mental dwarfs in this traveling comedy Democratic presidential primary tour. Hardcore Democrats supporting this clown-car contingent are similar to fanatical professional wrestling fans who refuse to believe that it’s all phony.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley and Ilhan Omar: These four deviant Democrat Congresswomen would be star attractions in the obsolete midway freak shows of long-ago state fairs. However, I doubt even P.T. Barnum or Leroy “Believe It Or Not” Ripley, would have been bold enough to feature this bizarre quartet, they would be too preposterous. Carney barkers standing in front of their midway attraction could shout: “Come on in ladies and gentlemen! The show’s continuous, it never ends.  And you won’t believe your eyes or your ears! They’re stupid, anti-Semitic, liars, cheats, and crooks – one’s a terrorist-supporter, another an incestuous bigamist, the others dumber than a barrel of hair — and they’re all profane anti-Americans!” And those are just a few of the more moderate labels these aberrant and disgusting women wear.

George Soros is a liberal billionaire, anti-Semitic Jewish atheist and con artist who bankrolls far left causes including Antifa and groups that support mass migration into the United States and litigate against President Trump’s immigration agenda. This miserable billionaire’s Open Society Foundation (OSF) is responsible for financing numerous neo-Marxist organizations including some $2.6 billion to advance left-wing priorities which in reality promote militant feminism, militant Islam, illegal drugs, and violence. He has attacked Jews, falsely claiming they cause anti-Semitism. This vile leftist’s current net worth is estimated to be about $8 billion, not including the $18 billion of his wealth that he transferred to his organizations in 2017. According to “Open Borders, Inc: Who’s Funding America’s Destruction,” a new book by Michelle Malkin, Soros organizations such as the OSF has doled out more than $50 million to the ACLU to end mass incarceration. In one particular instance, a Soros group gave $100,000 to ACLU’s Idaho chapter to “conduct outreach, strengthen protections, and empower immigrant, refugee, Muslim, and indigenous communities in Idaho who are feeling threatened in a culture of rising hate.” The Center for Constitutional Rights enjoyed a donation of $530,000 from OSF in 2016 to support its “Human Rights Movements and Institutions” program. The Center for Constitutional Rights was involved in a class action lawsuit on behalf of migrants turned away at the southern border by agents tasked with preventing asylum fraud. His wealth may make him the most dangerous because the others can all be bought.

Al Sharpton & Jesse Jackson are both charismatic and eloquent and could have done a lot of good had they chosen to do so. Instead they chose to become con-men and shake-down artists, playing a blame game and going on incessantly about how white racism is to blame for all the perceived wrongs in the black community. Neither of these hypocritical charlatans has done a thing to advance the cause of any minority group, much less blacks, instead they only advanced the size of their own bank accounts. To demonstrate how low the Democrat party has fallen, its current crop of presidential primary candidates fall all over themselves to appear next to tax cheat and liar Sharpton at public events. The late Booker T. Washington a great American and black educator, could have been describing both Jackson and Sharpton, when he said: “There is a class of colored people who make a living of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public, learning that they can make a living out of their troubles. These people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”

Maxine

Maxine Waters and Sheila Jackson Lee are two of the dimmest and most dishonest people in America and unfortunately both of these Democrats are serving in the U.S. Congress. Columnist Michelle Malkin described Waters as “…one of the most self-serving, hate-filled, race-obsessed politicians in America” but her portrayal could appropriately describe both of these despicable women.  This year Waters publicly urged people to attack members of the Trump Administration in public places and “tell them they aren’t welcome, anymore, anywhere.” This dangerous loser calls for ongoing disruption, grievance, and special identity demands through false accusations that conservatives are racist right-wing boobs. Her solution for perceived societal problems is violence. Ms. Lee, who may be the dumbest person in Congress and Texas, wanted to know why the Rover spacecraft that landed on Mars didn’t take a picture of the American flag that the astronauts left there in 1969. She also thinks the U.S. Constitution is 400 years old and wants hurricanes named after black people. Lee said when weather officials name hurricanes they should “try to be more inclusive of African-American names.” Can’t you picture the Weather Channel’s Jim Cantour — microphone in hand — standing in the driving rain on Jax Beach saying to the camera: “This killer storm – Shaniqua — is barreling toward Jacksonville.” Does she think that Hurricane Shaniqua would fill young blacks with racial pride? OK, I don’t really care, but if the weather people do that then shouldn’t we also have a few storms named Buffy, Bambi and Skipper?

Other insolent, abusive, vociferous, dim, infantile, hysterical and venomous anti-American extremists who belong on the list but didn’t make it this time due to space limitations include New York Times columnist and “economist” Paul Krugman who said the economy would collapse and America would go into a depression if Trump was elected; Special Counsel Robert Mueller for obvious reasons;  NY Times publisher Arthur Sulzberger; liberal TV commentators Chris Matthews, Don Lemon and Rachel Maddow; entertainers Barbra Streisand, Madonna, Alec Baldwin, Rosie O’Donnell, and Robert Die Niro;  all scatological rappers; former footballer Colin Kaepernick and his Nike lackeys; and sadly, too many more.

Next week the local “Least Wanted” list.

Ken Timmerman

And Now For Something Completely Different: Nobel Peace Prize nominee, friend, and newly arrived Amelia Island resident Ken Timmerman, will be the guest speaker at the next “We The People” event to be held Monday, October 7 from 5-7 p.m. at the Osprey Village Wellness Center.

Ken, who was a member of the 2016 Trump National Security and Foreign Policy Advisory Board, will speak on “The World According to Trump: A National Security Perspective.”  Beer, wine, and heavy hors d’ oeuvres will be served, and admission is $30 per person.

To make reservations contact Deb Boelkes by October 4 at 904/310-9602 or Deb.Boelkes@BWRising.com.

Ken, who is a nationally recognized investigative reporter and war correspondent, was nominated for the Nobel Peace prize in 2006 for the work he has done to expose Iran’s nuclear weapons program. Since 1995, he has run the Foundation for Democracy in Iran (iran.org) and regularly meets with Iranian dissidents overseas. He lectured on Iran at the Pentagon’s Joint Counter-Intelligence Training Academy, JCITA, from 2010-2016.

His latest book, ISIS BEGINS: a novel of the Iraq war, is based on recent trips to Mosul and Amman, Jordan.

For the past thirty years, Ken has covered both sides of the Arab-Israeli conflict, interviewing radical imams and would-be suicide bombers in Gaza, while reporting on a plight of Israeli citizens during the Hezbollah missile attacks of the 2006 war. As a young reporter in 1982, he was taken hostage by Palestinian guerilla fighters in West Beirut.

Famed Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal said of Ken, “I have spent my life tracking the murderers of yesterday. Mr. Timmerman is tracking the murderers of tomorrow.”

Drinking, Dining & Dancing: With fewer tourists prowling the beaches and downtown, local Amelia island bars and eateries are once again offering annual incentives to entice locals to venture to their joints more often. The Sandbar & Restaurant at Main Beach is featuring $8.00 lunch specials Monday through Friday from 11 a.m.to 2 p.m. that include fish & chips, an eight-inch wood fired pizza, soup and ½ a sandwich, and a shrimp entrée with a choice of a side. For college and professional football fans it features a weekend “Tailgate” menu with loaded cheese fries for $10, a soft pretzel stick for $8, pizza egg rolls, $8, mini corn dogs, $8, mozzarella sticks, $8 and what I think is the best deal of all – three sliders (pork, chicken, or beef) for 10 bucks. (Personally, there’s no way I am ever paying eight bucks for a pretzel no matter how big or where it’s served. Most of the pubs on the island are serving them and I understand the margins are terrific, but Hey, folks, it’s just flour and salt.) The South Fetcher Surf Restaurant & Bar is advertising that it’s once again under new management and unveiled a weekday happy hour that includes a 3-6 p.m. Happy Hour with $2 & $2.75 domestic draft beers, one-half off well drinks, $3 house wine, $1 off bottled beer and a dollar off appetizers. They also say they have a new menu and will feature live music during happy hour. The Captain Jack’s Smokehouse Tuesday 4-8 p.m. one dollar St. Louis ribs and dollar Bud Lights is getting more crowded as it should since you can get change from a $10 bill and leave the place stuffed with ribs and beer.  I assume the reason I discovered an invitation tucked under a wiper blade is because my car sports a Florida State University license plate. The invitation alerted me that FSU fans meet weekly at the Sandbar & Restaurant to “socialize and support our team for away game gatherings.” Those games are September 14, October 12, October 19, November 9 and November 30. For more information contact Tom and Stacie Linley at tom@linley.us or call them at 850/510-7818. Still the best peel and eat shrimp deal anywhere around is the Salty Pelican’s $10 for a half-pound and $17 for a full pound, a price that other area restaurants haven’t come close to matching. I’ve heard the Pelican sells enough of those eight buck pretzels to subsidize the low shrimp prices, so I’m encouraging folks to keep munching those pricey pretzels so I can keep enjoying those tasty reasonably priced shrimp.

It never fails Dave. The dissenters rant and rave. Never a positive position or postulation of what their party would do for us "deplorables. So full of hate, can't have a positive plateau.

No, no, no!!!!! Don't hate on the Democrats "best candidates " please! This is like watching an episode of Lottery winners lose it all. It starts out with all the promise in the world and yet they seem to end up right back to the regular Joe life and dead broje again by the end of the show. These candidates are the greatest thing to happen to the American people, because after their party is crushed during the election maybe then they wil see just how ridiculous and self destructive their tag along ideas truly are. Keep um coming! Show their debates on EVERY channel 24/7. Give them exclusive coverage on their braindead agendas. Best thing to ever happen for our country. Maybe now the left will begin to open their eyes to just how hopeless and hapless their party has truly become.

WOW!! What happened to the clear thinking people that used to reside on Amelia Island? Someone leave the back door ajar and a few folks from Manhattan slip in. Sounds like a Mayor de Blasio press conference open only to CNN reporters.Is Trump the greatest ever president? Hell no,but he is the first one in eons that tells it like it is and these leftists cannot handle it. All you so called elitists can vote any way you wish but in the confines of your Hi-Rise you are salivating over the gains in your portfolios. over the big gains in your portfolios.

Your list is blatantly biased. Sure there are screw ups in the left,so there are on the right as well. The bullshit piles up when we have a president that directs a nation as a fourth grader, and has very few years left on this earth, lies and implores democracy under the new authoritarian capitalism. However, the culprit of the future remains in a group that for some keep hope for our country but that in fact behave under a circus style. This is not about Hillary, Obama, Donald, Bush, and the rest of politicians that in a way or another have failed this nation. Under your criteria you developed this list politically charged to condemn a political party while you provide cheap places to drink and go at the end. Seems like you follow Caesars idea, to the people "bread and circus". Why don't you include yourself in the list?

Here is a note, why is it no one is taking notice of the fact, people from an indian or pakastan origin based background is taking over all the motels and gas stations etc, now if i wanted to onvade a country orver a period of time and ser up cells so, outward boldly and no one see it till it was to late. They come here legal and ill legal through mexico, Canada taken over just these two business allows them to control places for troops to bed down and refuel their trucks i installed security systems for these people they call themselfs "seak" or speak Farsi very hard to pin them down as for origin but they are set up to view us from thwir homes, and i am seeing more truxk drivers who are indian, hindi, etc

If I was you I’d spend some time on who do you trust because these days it’s nobody trusts the other. Banks screwing over customers and not getting in trouble, elected people on the take, churches spend money to cover up stuff, telephone scams. companies not honoring the employees. I saw on tv last night that almost all the stuff in our Rx prescriptions is made in China and when they are ready to stick it to us they can. I already pay too much of my money on medication. Big company executives only worried about getting rich.

Dave absolutely love your work. Could you please list all the president T,,rumps cabinet members, advisors, and close friends, you know the " best possible people" , who are indicted jailed, fired or quit. You can also include those who committed suicide under security watch Keep up the good work it's always fair and balanced

Dave: Last night was the first time I ever turned off a Presidential debate. I couldn't take any more of those candidates casting the most tolerant nation in the history of the world as the home of two kinds of people; victims and victimizers. I guess there is a third kind now; Dem candidates who will straighten us out. Imagine children watching that and believing that their country of such enormous opportunity is actually run by racist predators. Great graphics. Is the Ship of Fools an original?

Hey Dave, Thanks for pointing out the knuckleheads and otherwise bad people among us. There's a least THREE more blogs worth on this topic...Can't wait. When I went to comment, I couldn't come up with any clever descriptors for this weeks screed. Then it hit me after a re-read. "It's just flour and salt".... See ya at Happy Hour.

Your mother was right! Mine too! She used to say if you can lie you can steal - consider all liars potential thieves! Good one Dave!

You missed one guy - what’s his name- the guy that every time he moves his lips, he’s lying.

Peg stole my line! I thought the same EXACT thing when I read that first paragraph. When I think lie (Mexico will pay for the wall), exaggerate (Alabama is in the cone of uncertainty), steal (from every contractor that has ever worked on a trump tower), take advantage of others (see previous example), capitalize on the misery of unfortunates (by mocking their disability), and say and do stupid things (see: first and only term of 45), guess who I thought you were referencing?

Hey Dave, when I read the first sentence I thought, wow, he's finally talking about Trump! Thanks for the laugh, he should have headed your list.....
