Asleep on the Job
Antoine is at the Table
Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Tuesday, July 28, 2015. Our industrious friend, Antoine, is at the breakfast table. He just returned from a visit to our nation's capitol. While there, he dropped in on the Senate Judiciary Committee. Family members of victims murdered by illegal aliens were invited to testify. Antoine was appalled by the demeanor of members of this committee. He has asked me to extend an invitation to all the poppers to join him for breakfast. He wants to fill you in on what he witnessed. Antoine will be baking fresh croissants for breakfast. I will supply the Irish coffees. We hope to see you soon.
Adding Insult to Injury
Bonjour, mes amis. Thank you for joining me this morning. Some of the family members of loved one who were murdered by illegal aliens were very disturbed by the treatment they received while testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Sabine Durden, who lost her son Dominic, remarked that as she spoke she saw some members of the committee falling asleep. Others were fiddling with their phones. To display such disinterest and disrespect to these family members is a disgusting slap in the face to all citizens. The stories of these parents were gut wrenching, to say the least, but sadly some committee members were bored and restless. There is nothing that can be offered in their defense. I suppose that they are so accustomed to marching to their own drummer, that having to sit still for a bit was just too much for them to bear. Congress is just spinning its wheels these days. Its members never solve anything. They never address a problem in a reasonable period of time. They pretend they are working when there is precious little evidence of anything worthwhile going on. Perhaps they are hoping that all of us will fall asleep while they laze around holding meetings and hearings that never end up accomplishing anything. Their behavior, Republicans and Democrats alike, is appalling. Maybe they should recess forever.
In spite of the disinterest of the Senate Committee, the House passed a bill to punish sanctuary cities. This move comes in the wake of the heinous murder of 32 year old Kathryn Steinle in San Francisco. The House voted to punish cities like San Francisco for shielding illegal immigrants from deportation. Republicans pushed the bill through. Democrats objected to the bill saying that sanctuary cities are being targeted because of a tragedy, not because they deserve it. It must be hard to look in the mirror and defend an opinion like the ones held by these Democrats and the Obama administration. Naturally, the White House has made it quite clear that the bill will be vetoed. The administration has no desire to try and force jurisdictions like San Francisco to report illegal immigrants. Please pardon me while I take an aspirin!
Comply With the Law
These days, compliance with already existing laws has fallen out of favor. The federal government doesn't follow its own laws. If it did, we might not be in such trouble. Illegal immigrants are committing crimes every day. Not all illegals are breaking the law, but we shouldn't be tolerating the ones that are. Our borders should have been secured a long time ago. How many people have to die before we act to do the right thing? Sanctuary cities are breaking the law every day. They should not be allowed to exist. With this proposed law, they would be punished by being denied federal grant money for failing to provide information to immigration agents. The cities who provide sanctuary should be held accountable for the deaths of so many innocent victims. If San Francisco had done the right thing, Kathryn Steinle would be alive, because her murderer would be under lock and key. Personally, I don't think the bill goes far enough. The existence of sanctuary cities should be condemned and declared illegal. Those that continue to break the law should be punished accordingly. It's high time we remember that we are supposed to be a nation of laws. Will somebody please phone the White House and apprise them of that fact?

Fake News is sweeping the nation. Why not call it what it is, despicable reporting aimed at twisting minds and damaging reputations.
The insanity that is so prevalent these days is harming our nation. Peaceful protest is one thing, mud slinging, violence and betrayal is quite another.
