Antoine Scratches His Head

Good morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Monday, July 11, 2016. Our industrious friend, Ant Antoine, is at the breakfast table this morning. He has asked for the pleasure of your company. Antoine is grieving. Black lives do not live in a bubble. They are not separate from white lives or Latino lives or any lives. Until we put an end to this dangerous movement, we will never come together. Please head for Pop's house so we can discuss this a bit further. We are anxiously awaiting your arrival, and we will greet you at the door with a smile and a Bloody Mary.

It's Finger Pointing Time

Thank you all for coming to the table this morning. America is at war. The sides are obscured by a media who takes every opportunity to sensationalize any incident involving a white cop and a black alleged victim. President Obama sits at the top of this blame pyramid, and he is in "good" company. Joining him in dividing this nation and upping the rhetoric and violence is former Attorney General Holder. When Holder did nothing to stop the New Black Panther party from threatening and intimidating voters, the fix was in. This was going to be payback time. Whites were being put on notice that the powers that be were not looking out for them. Joining this powerful group is Rev. Al Sharpton who never misses an opportunity to make things worse. When a white cop or citizen kills a black, Rev. Al appears like magic, making sure that the people are angry, the words vicious and the protests loud and often. There is more black on black violence in this nation than anything else, but Rev. Al just isn't interested. His silence is deafening. I don't think black lives really matter to Rev Al. I am not sure they matter to President Obama either, because if they did he would consistently approach these problems with the goal of bringing people together and urging calm. Instead he points to guns and Republicans as being the source of the problem. Apparently, the president and the would-be president Clinton think that guns have minds and can pull their own triggers. Attorney General Loretta Lynch doesn't deal with an even hand either. Justice has color to this administration despite the fact that we have a black president, Attorney General, Supreme Court Justice and so many others. Black lives do not matter more than any other lives. All lives matter, and it is time we started acting like it. The Black Lives Matter movement has caused a great deal of harm. They go out of their way to keep the hostility growing among blacks against whites. The lunatic who gunned down police officers in Dallas was inspired by the group's rhetoric. Our police aren't safe or respected by many because of the hate spread by this group. Our police aren't safe anymore because of the lack of respect that comes from the Oval Office. Our police aren't safe anymore, because the left likes it that way. They crave chaos and chaos brings unwelcome change. All lives matter.

Stop the War

Hillary Clinton gave a speech in which she blamed white America for the chaos we are now experiencing. Her words were stinging lies aimed at pandering to voters who want desperately to place the blame squarely in the laps of white Americans. Hillary is part of the problem. It is people like her who spread lies, distort the truth and paint a picture of race relations based on old perceptions We have made enormous progress in this country since the days of slavery. Black Americans have every opportunity to succeed if that is their goal. If succeeding in our nation in a lawful way is not their cup of tea, than blame the parents, the community leaders and the nation's leaders who refuse to tell it like it is. Black young men and women who are attracted to movements like Black Lives Matter should take a step back and realize that the key to a brighter future lies with them, Where are the black role models? Why don't they tell these kids to stop whining, grow up, get educated, create a business and make a difference? President Obama and Michelle Obama should have been spreading this message constantly for the last eight years. Instead they kept racism alive, because it is in their interest to keep America divided. A divided and angry America is easier to manipulate, and we are being played big time right now. The press is complicit in this, the White House is complicit in this, the Democrats are complicit in this, the liberal left is complicit in this, and the result of all of it is violence, death and despair. All lives matter.

It's Now or Never

We have to stop the stupid and dangerous rhetoric. We have to stop political correctness. We have to speak freely and honestly and stop tempering the truth to make it more palatable to some people. People who resort to violence as a means of expression are fools and thugs. Those that attack police officers are felons who must be punished. Peaceful protest is everyone's right. Violence is not a right, and we must refuse to support it, explain it and forgive it. We must stop being pawns in the hands of certain individuals and media outlets who lie to us on a daily basis, and distort the truth or omit it entirely. The bottom line is this. If President Obama won't lead, then we have to lead. If the press won't report the truth, we have to stop reading their garbage. If Al Sharpton promotes more violence and hatred, we have to reject his message and send him packing. By "we" I mean all Americans, of every color and background. We can do it, because All Lives Matter.

Antoine's Song

Let's go children of the homeland

The day of reckoning is upon us

Against you tyranny's ugly flag is raised.

Obama's primary mission was to destroy, or at least weaken this country, and he has done a damn fine job.

It is rumored that BLM actually takes their orders from Obama himself. I'm not sure this is true but it is certainly within the realm of possibility.

Bottom line is he has set this country back at least 100 years in many ways.

Pop and Antoine,

As long as so many stand to gain by fanning flames rather than cooling tempers fires will grow and consume society.

BLM is funded by Soros front groups. Soros is behind the election of Obama as President. He has visited the White House numerous times. His progressive liberal agenda matches that of Obama... His One World Order goal and his Open Society Institute supports open borders... Connect the dots.

Good Morning Mike,

I wouldn't be surprised if Obama was behind the movement. I wouldn't be surprised if Soros was, or Clinton or any of these people who seek to destroy us. See you at the Inn. These are dangerous times, so rock the door behind you.

Pretty smart for an ant. The black panthers are nothing but ignorant thugs. The president, attorney general, Al Sharpton, the MSM and other left wingers are ignorant idiots and thugs, in some cases. Black lives matter is a vehicle for thugs who have no desire to make the situation better. A black woman in Dallas was interviewed in the hospital. She said that during the shooting a policeman was asking if anyone was shot. She indicated that she was. And she said the policeman covered her and her son with his body. The policeman was white. She was so grateful for what he did. She said he put his life in danger to protect her life, and she was so grateful. She is more the voice of reason than the president, AG, sharpton, MSM, clinton and the rest of the ignorant left. There is a lot of work to do now that the president has set race relations back at least 10 years.

It is rumored that Obama will use BLM as a reason to declare Martial Law to delay the election and remain in power. True or false, I don't know. I think it would all depend on how Clinton is doing in the election as the time gets closer. She of course would carry on every one of the movements Obama has started where someone else would probably not.

Again, I have no idea if this is fact or fiction, but I can see where it could happen. If he were to do this I can see another civil war starting in our very own country. I honestly never thought I would live long enough to see our country arrive at this point but I guess I will.

Old Poolman, I am optimistic that things won't go that direction. The reason is very simple. The 2nd Amendment. That is why we still need it in 2016 as we did in 1789.

The only way to stop race issues is to remove race. No more dividing us by race, no more asking on forms, no more giving us statistics split by race. Now some will say this means forgetting our ancestors and past. It is not. It is remembering all and eachother's ancestors and past. Start a new movement #RemoveRace

Another well done hub.

Blacks and other minorities talk about equality, but apparently they think that their lives are more important than others. Equality would say ALL Lives Matter. But we know better, those of the far left orchestrate unilaterally the inequality by their focus on blacks and not people.

The US Government is responsible for pigeon holing people into their component attributes. When someone pays their Income Tax why does the government want to know, whether they are male or female, black, white or any other color, their age, and marital status. Why should married couples get special treatment on income taxes.

All of this is bound with the de facto National ID, they call it SSN, but it is used as if it is a National ID. It lacks the identification process of a passport, driver's license or National ID, but it is still used as one.

My point is that the federal government is responsible for making the country divided based on their attributes. It is also interesting that they include your donation to either party, so now they know which is your party, another data point, all in the name of simply retrieving revenue to run the country??

If the "African Americans" have not been happy with a two term black president, and two black attorney generals, then what is it that they want from the country?

I believe that the Black Lives Matter is a political spinoff of the politically militantly success of the lgbt and gay marriage, and all the rest abnormal sex.

They have seen how the lgbt has commanded their message about how the US and its people should treat them, and cemented it down with a SC decision.

Now the Black Lives Matter is the lgbt battle plan wrapped in new threads.

BTW 46 million people are on food stamps, shouldn't that be a national concern? When have you last heard it being even discussed?

Can you still recognize it?

I have heard the same thing, but I have no idea where it came from or if it has any truth to it. I think we are already at war. It just hasn't been officially declared.

Dear brad,

The federal government starting at the top has everything to do with this mess. Obama started it, two Attorney Generals made it worse, the press stirred the pot and the Dems added a whole bunch of stupidity. Black leaders with character need to step up to the plate and change the messaging. Black Lives Matter behaves like a terrorist organization and that is the last thing we need. See you at the Inn.

I would laugh at the BLM agenda as silly and stupid; however, their agenda is helping to kill people, and in general make life miserable for Americans, so I can't laugh. I don't believe that this rhetoric is going to stop, and I believe things in general are going to get worse because, well, we humans are a wounded lot.

Pop, I'm getting ready for a rough ride.

Old Poolman is right. They are after martial law and Hillary has hinted at it saying maybe the government should police? The two of them would like nothing better than to see America destroyed and I can see Obama's point of view him being raised a communist Islamic Muslim but all I can say about Hillary is that she would sell her soul if the price was right, and apparently it was.

Dear Jackie,

You are absolutely right. It is hard for me to imagine that anyone would consider voting for the consummate liar Hillary. Then I remind myself that these same people put Obama in the WH, which is mind numbing. See you at the Inn. It may be the last safe place on earth.

Dear PoP...

One of your best and most passionately written blogs I've read and I have been following you for years...You are right on the mark when you ask "Where are the Black role models..? Instead, we have Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and others encouraging violence, we have the top federal cop, Lynch, blaming guns and racism, and we have Obama, feckless fool that he is, blaming Republicans..!!

The BLM movement is a racist-terrorist organization that now has its own army, the New Black Panther Party...Anarchy and division is their objective...

The ignition point for the BLM movement was Ferguson, Mo....Encouraged by AG Eric Holder when he called the police department "fundamentally racist", and Obama essentially saying the white cop was racist and to blame for the shooting, by attending the thug's funeral...

When was the last time Obama ever attended a slain cop's funeral..? Unbelievably RACIST...

I'm going to celebrate your wonderfully incisive blog at the Inn with Black Russians for all...

I have so much to say on this but I'm going to keep it short and sweet. If you act like a criminal, you should be treated as such. If

You want to protest peacefully that's your right. If you want to insite chaios that is criminal behavior!

Plain and simple. If our dear politician say that during their speach this world would be much more peaceful! They should also remind the public to act like respectful productive Members of society to appreciate the police department that are enforcing our laws, they are trying hard to do their jobs. Our dear politicians just like to stir the pot instead of speaking the truth. Is the Inn open, I need to hide their I'm not sure this is going to get better before it gets worse.

Dear maven

First of all, thank you for your kind words. When you like something, it means a great deal to me. As for this hideous situation, it found its voice in the WH, its protection in the Attorney General's office, its voice in the biased and dangerous press and its power in the animals that believe in violence. We are into the woods rather than out of the woods. It's not safe out there, and I have no doubt that this is just the beginning of very dangerous times. I'll meet you at the Inn. Black Russians sound fine. I am sure the BLM sycophants will find the drink racist.

Good Morning John,

I am so sorry I missed your comment yesterday. I happen to agree with you. We don't need to be identified by race or religion, but the federal government just loves to keep tabs on all of us so they can make bad decisions. See you at the Inn. It is a place that exists only in our minds, but it is a safe haven for clear thinking people.

Good Morning Jennifer,

Clearly, you possess common sense, which cannot be said for so many other. The BLM is a terrorist organization committed to bringing death to and destruction to our nation. I hope that one of these days people who belong to this movement or who support them need protection from the police and don't get it. I can't stand the hypocrisy of the whole thing. Just look at Beyonce. She disrespected our police and then asked for their help in keeping her safe. I can't stand it. I'll save you a seat at the Inn.

If only the police could disguise themselves as black when in confrontation with black people.

They use female officers to frisk females.

If only they could use black male cops to deal with black people. Or have the white cops go undercover as black. Dallas sniper would not happen if police who shot sterling were black IMO.

Ok. So all I see is the last comment, and I think mixed metaphors.

But then -

I remember a toy my grandfather gave me to play with. It was a heavy metal ball, two thin metal rails, and a preformed block of wood. The game was to separate two metal rails at a pace slow enough so that the heavy metal ball held in-between would roll upwards while trying to fall through the rails. The object was to get the ball to move from a low starting position to a higher level resting position.

Like Sisyphus, I could never get it to work. For some reason, my grandfather told me to keep trying. It was an exercise in frustration.

And now that I remember the tales of Sisyphus, while at the same time pondering the legacy of Obama, I think: "what a great comment that was".

Jim...For one to really know and understand Sisyphus I would recommend reading Camus' take on this heroic god...Far from frustrated, Sysiphus looked forward to the eternal challenge given him by the vengeful gods...It was in the struggle itself that he found the invincibility of his heart...PoP brings that invincibility to the breakfast table every Monday...Her struggle against the tyranny of the Left is undiminished, regardless of the continual outrages of political correctness, the blatant corruption of our government, and the aid and abetment of the MSM ...

She accepts that stone boulder every week and shoves it to the top with unwavering patriotism, intelligence, and an honesty that would make Hillary Clinton blush...

In order to rid ourselves of the BIG problem, we need to ignore, fight against & defy all those who create the "parts of the problem." We need to refuse to participate in the rhetoric & divisiveness and instead commit to memory pop's final chapters IT'S NOW OR NEVER.

Push forward full-speed, fueled by the power of unity & the knowledge that for Life itself to matter, ALL lives must matter to each & every one of us.

BRAVO, pop!!

The devision in our nation is beyond awful. Every single day that goes by brings us closer to civil war. The New Black Panther Movement and Black Lives Matter will make sure that happens. Obama will look the other way. See you at the Inn.

As you stated, "the key to a brighter future lies with them." This is true for all people. Together we can bring this world around by focusing on the positive -- forget the media who only reports news to manage the blind sheep.
