Miss America contestants vie to bash Pres. Trump

In case you missed it, Miss America 2018 was crowned Sunday night. But unlike pageants of the past where the high point of the evening was the portion where contestants strutted their stuff in spike heels and swim suits and the competition included mostly marginally talented, sweetly smiling young women who earnestly answered questions about their future plans to cure cancer or reach the moon, there is a new system at play.

Politics has entered the arena where a Miss Arizona, Vonda Kay Van Dyke, wooed the judges with her novel ventriloquist act, earning her the crown in 1965.

Now all the finalists are ventriloquists, mouthing the leftist political lines so in vogue at the schools they attend and with the Hollywood crowd in the films they watch. Who else to emulate but actress Gwyneth Paltrow who was at a loss for words as she hosted a DNC fundraiser at her home, and told the guest of honor President Obama: “You’re so handsome that I can’t speak properly.”

The politically loaded questions the Miss America contestants, who must be between the ages of 18 and 24, were asked were aimed at bashing President Trump. They dealt with dissecting the president’s response regarding the Charleston riots, and whether he was guilty or innocent of colluding with the Russians.

The winner, 23-year-old Cara Mund of North Dakota, also gave a winning answer to the question about whether President Trump should have backed out of the Paris Climate Agreement on “man made climate change” and whether the decision was good or bad. Without missing a beat and sounding as though she’d been coached by Al Gore, Mund said “it was bad, because climate change exists and the U.S. needs to be at the negotiating table.”


The wrong answer for many of us was the right answer to gain the crown. And she didn’t even need a ventriloquist’s dummy. Cara Mund played both roles

These are the previous Miss America winners going back to the contest’s inception in 1921, when it was simply a beauty contest without blatant political overtures.

    Compare the recent events like the Miss America contest; the Burning Man (drug and sex orgy)Festival in the Nevada desert, and the ANTIFA thugs still doing their thing to the brave folks who have suffered and endured through Two monster hurricanes.

    Zeroes and heroes.

    Miss America contestants should go back to the days when most of them twirled a baton.

    Meanwhile, closer to home:
    It looks like there’s a new sheriff in town.
    Not Paul Penzone.
    Grant Woods.

    FOX News Phoenix reported yesterday that MCSO may be shutting down their Sheriff’s Posse program, which of course was started by Sheriff Joe.

    All because one guy overstepped the boundaries, a good program may be lost.

    Little did I know that Grant Woods is the head of some entity called SPEAR, which was successful in getting tent city shut down in record breaking time. Now, he’s after the Posse.

    If Woods is successful, communities in the West Valley will suffer.
    I have seen, firsthand, the posse respond within minutes of traffic accidents and secure the scene and direct traffic. The information that they provide to sworn police officers and fire dept personnel is often invaluable.

    And during the holidays, they patrol the parking lots at shopping centers around the valley, providing security for folks doing their Christmas shopping.

    One more example of throwing the baby out with the bath water.

      I’m a big fan of Joe Arpaio’s, but the posses were in effect at the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office long before Joe was Sheriff.

      My Dad was a member of the MC Air Posse where all the pilots used their own planes and did invaluable work. There were diving posses that brought bloated bodies, often in pieces, out of canals, lakes and rivers. There were also several search and rescue horse and foot posses that meticulously searched suspected crime scenes for evidence. Volunteer posses crisscrossed the county from Wickenburg and Phoenix to Mesa and Scottsdale and beyond, to a couple that patrolled Sun City.

      My Dad was immensely proud of his service and so were we.

      • Saguaro Sam says:

        Thank you for the historical information about the Sheriff’s Posse and about the important role that your father had as a volunteer.
        The world needs more good people like him.

        If we had a real and decent newspaper, this type of information would make a wonderful story.

    Miss America Cara Mund is joining the liberal thought police, who are becoming ever more virulent. Now there are actually calls to punish global warming skepticism as a criminal offense in the aftermath of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, as though devastating acts of nature have never before occurred.

    In 1900 more than 6,000 people died in a massive storm and resulting flood in Galveston Texas.

    The Miss America pageant is a relic with ever decreasing viewers. The contestants are mostly self absorbed airheads who have honed their personalities, demeanor and facades with trainers who make a living off of the aspirations of someone who wants to wear a fake crown for a year. The contest tries to pass itself off as meaningful by offering scholarships, and pretending the winner contributes to society as an ambassador…of what?

    BTW, analogy between the ventriloquist and the dummy is priceless! It made me chuckle!!

    Everything is politicized today. Things that are supposed to be fun aren’t fun anymore.

    I enjoyed seeing the previous Miss America winners going back to 1921, shown above.
    -Miss America 2008, Kirsten Haglund appears on Fox News Channel as a solid conservative.
    -1955, Lee Meriwether – model, actress, real beauty is now 82 years of age. Born in Los Angeles, lived in Phoenix for a period of time. She played Catwoman in the Batman movie of 1966.
    -1945, Bess Myerson was well known in NYC politics, held appointed positions and was a constant companion of Mayor Ed Koch until her death.

    Here’s the “latest” on our ASS McEgo:
    McCain will remain in Senate as brain cancer treatment continues – CBS News

    Nothing but the best. Thought he’d give the V.A. some thought being a veteran and all.

    The leftist have been doing everything they can do drive a wedge between the different groups that make up this country. Many of these groups used their difference to strengthen this county not tear it apart. But the leftist now using a wedge to rip this county into many separate parts and by breaking this county apart also weakening it. There is purpose in this effort to divide us against one another, While we are busy fighting each other they hope we will not see them taking over the government that has little or no tolerance for those who hold different beliefs. They are closer than you might expect.
