Terror, Terror, Everywhere

Did You Hear?

Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Wednesday, July 2, 2014. Our soulful friend ,Praying Mantis Manny, is here with me at the breakfast table. He is very concerned about the breakdown of conditions in Iraq. Please join Manny for breakfast this morning. He has some news that he thinks you should know about. Luscious warm banana bread and refreshing Bloody Mary's are on the menu.

Skating on "ISIS"

Thank you all for joining me this morning. Let me get right to the heart of my concern. President Obama told four members of Congress that he did not feel he had any need to obtain authority from Congress to deal with the crisis in Iraq. Given his failed track record of dealing with Iraq and his poor judgement that led to this crisis, he will be making, yet another monumental mistake," going it alone." The situation in Iraq poses a great threat to security right here at home. Perhaps someone should tell the president just how dangerous ISIS radicals are in their increasingly successful efforts to establish a terror stronghold. There is no question that we are skating on thin ice when it comes to our safety. The reason may surprise you. Thousands of Europeans and some Americans are traveling into Syria and Iraq to join the fight.

Tourism Terrorism

NBC News chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel is reporting on the increased terror threat Americans face from ISIS. He has reported that US Intelligence officials have told NBC News that the current terror threat against US targets is extremely high. Let's hope President Obama tunes into Richard Engel, so that he can learn about the danger. That is, after all, his preferred method of learning about important issues. At present there are about 70 American nationals that have joined ISIS. What will stop these Americans from returning home and continuing the fight on our shores?

Over 2,000 Europeans have also made the trip. Young disaffected Muslims are leaving Europe to fight in Syria and now Iraq. The number of these "terror tourists" is high and rising. Europe is talking about this problem. I haven't heard much, if anything, about this trend right here in America. Then again, without a free press, most Americans remain blissfully clueless about so many issues. President Obama clearly falls in that category, as well. I think he needs better advisors. Valerie Jarrett just can't do it all by herself!

This crisis needs input from Congress. Although President Obama doesn't see the necessity of involving those who represent the American people, there is a real need to address the growing crisis in the Middle East. Think about it. Radical Muslims are traveling to the Middle East to join forces with other radical Muslims.They will become adept at terror while they are there. Eventually, many of them will return home. They will enter America, France, Germany, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Italy with a desire to keep the jihad going. They will be doing it on the soil of their adopted nations and the outcome will be devastating.

Put down the Pen and Phone

It is time for the federal government to start functioning again. We don't have the time to listen to the nonsense spewing out of the mouth of Nancy Pelosi. We don't have time to sit through President Obama telling the nation that "by every economic measure, we are better off now than we were when I took office. You wouldn't know it, but we are."

We don't have the luxury of listening to impossible statements like this. We are in trouble, deep, deep trouble. We are in trouble economically. We are suffering through a dangerous invasion at our borders. We have a president who trashes the rule of law and the Constitution at every turn. We are consumed by scandal and now our safety is at stake. The time to act is now. Wakeup Congress, America is on the verge of becoming a third world nation. Wake-up voters, your country is falling into ruin. It is now or never....


Manny's Song

The moment I wake up

Before I stretch my wings

I say a little prayer for you, America...

The bum in the white house set out to ruin the country. He is accomplishing his goal.

Manny, the really frightening part is we still have a great many citizens who are totally ignorant of everything you spoke of in this hub.

They will not believe this until we have daily terrorist attacks right here in our own cities. You are correct that this will happen, and it will not be that long. This will happen because our own Government allowed it to happen and is still doing little or nothing to prevent it.

Our borders are not secure regardless of what this administration tells us. We recently opened the door even wider to allow thousands of illegal women and children access to our country. They bring with them diseases we have not seen for years, and will soon be added to our already overburdened welfare system.

Perhaps it is time to bring all of our troops home from those hell holes where they are stationed and put them on our own borders. We should then cut off aid to all of those countries who hate us and would do anything to bring us down.

Bottom line Manny, what we are doing is not working and it is time to take some action to protect our citizens.

Good Morning, taxlarry,

And he is doing it without causing much of a stir. I guess the nation is out to lunch, or should I say breakfast? See you at the Inn.

Good Morning Mike,

The borders are open to more than women and children. There are plenty of men in that group as well and I am sure some of them came here to harm us. TB will resurface once more along with swine flu and probably ebola. I can't believe this is happening while Congress sleeps. I agree with you, bring our troops home to protect us at our borders. See you at the Inn.

Pop and Manny,

Obama has accomplished only one thing that I can see during his almost six years. This uniter, not divider has managed to unite the Supreme Court.

Manny, it almost looks like this is part of the final plan to finish off this once great nation. Perhaps the next step will be to provide free transportation to all terrorists that would like to be roaming freely in our country?

Okay, I'll give him that!!!! See you at the Inn. Make sure you are not being followed. It's dangerous out there!

It is always a slippery slope when a president does this....presidents have been doing this throughout our history, and rarely do the results turn out well. One thing I've learned during my sixty-five years is that we don't seem to learn from past mistakes.

Dear Mike,

I am sure he is already providing them with EBT cards and health care. Why not cut to the quick and arm them! I had better get to the Inn. I may be losing my mind!

Good Morning billy,

This president has turned "going it alone" into an art form, a very dangerous art form. He makes Nixon look like a pussycat. Yes, we don't ever learn from our mistakes, which for me is the perfect definition of "stupidity". See you at the Inn.

Obama has his goals, and fighting terrorism is not among them. To Obama, the answer is to diminish America in every way, so that we pose no threat to radical Islam, and maybe they will then leave us alone.

Obama's strategy is that we apologize for being Americans, we apologize for our strength, we apologize for having interests in the Middle East, we apologize for our generosity, we apologize for being an exceptional nation, and then we go home, and cower.

Barack Hussein Obama is a clueless, incompetent, community organizer, and has no business being in the White House.

Dear Will,

And so are the people who put him in office and continue to defend and support him. See you at the Inn.

POP: We will certainly welcome back any terrorist who joined the cause in Iraq. Why? Because they are Americans! We will also welcome any EU citizen who traveled to Iraq to fight the cause. Why? Because they are our friends. How naive. There will come a day when we will regret every move Obama made, and he will be busy flaunting his millions somewhere safe. I'm off to the bar.....

If we know the identity of any of those who left America to fight that battle their passports should be revoked immediately. We don't want them back in this country after the extensive training they will receive from the terrorists in Iraq.

If and when they do try to get back into the country they should be arrested and hung as traitors.

Dear Pino,

That day is coming sooner than you think. We are living a prolonged national nightmare. See you at the Inn.

Dear Mike,

Of course everything you wrote makes perfect common sense, so I'm afraid just the opposite will happen. If we even know who they are and are arrested, they will probably be tried outside of GITMO. That way they can recruit other prisoners to their cause.

Warm Banana bread and Bloody Mary's? Gross. But not near as nasty as Obama's lone ranger ways that open us up for terrorist attacks. If things keep going as they are, their might not be an America in the near future, or I should say a free country.

Dear lambservant,

I think you have a point about the combo. Manny should have served Irish coffees! As for King Obama, well he rules with an iron fist, otherwise known as Valerie Jarrett! See you at the Inn.

Valerie Jarett. I had to look her up. Creepy.

It's not going to get better before he leaves office. It will only get worse as long as no one reins him in. Clinton's impeachment procedures were started with less evidence than this...so what is it going to take before they start impeachment procedures on Obama?

Obama has obviously never read the words "Don't tread on me" because he's not only treading, he's stomping all over the Constitution and the American people.

Old Poolman 2 years ago from Rural Arizona

No Politician will have guts enough to propose impeachment for the first Black President of this country. That would be a career ending move to say the least.

Even if they did, it would take more time than he has left to serve so we are stuck until his term is over.

ok, sorry, didn't mean to offend.


Old Poolman profile image

Old Poolman 2 years ago from Rural Arizona

No offense taken. I was just offering my opinion on why nobody has yet tried to impeach this guy who keeps stomping on our Constitution. Those who could make it happen are hiding in the shadows.

Good Morning Rachael,

If we were living in normal times, Obama would have been impeached the day after his inauguration. Of course, if we were living in normal times with an intelligent electorate, we never would have heard of the guy, much less voted for him. See you at the Inn.

Good Morning, Mike,

There are actually a few people in Washington brave enough to talk about impeachment. It should be a groundswell! See you at the Inn and we'll toast the Fourth!

You defintely made several valid points in this hub. Where is this going to9 end? I fear no where good. As the people of this nation what can any one individiual do is my question? I have written to congressman, but I don't this it makes a bit of difference. Being overwhelmed with a great volume of letters may have some impact, but maybe we will have to gather and march.

I don't have the answers, but Obama does not seem to know that our government has three distinctive branches. He is only in control of one of those. He thinks he can ignore the judicial branch as the Supreme Court has ruled against his actions on four ocastions. I think it is time to impeach someone how cannot follow the Constitution. We impeached Clinton for lying about a bit of sex and Nixon for having men break in and gather records of the Democrates. Obama's sins seem much greater to me. It's time.

Good Morning, Pamela,

In my opinion, Obama is ripe for impeachment, no pun intended. Many have said that no one wants to lead the way for the impeachment of the first black president. Well shame on those fools. What difference does the color of his skin make, no difference. What matters is that he is pulling our country apart. I do think it's time for a march on Washington. I wrote to my rep. and I found his answer to be pathetic. I wrote him back and he did reply with a more substantive reply. Even so, Congress is just letting this rogue president ruin us. Have a great day, despite the disaster unfolding.

Our elected representatives are far to busy trying to keep their own jobs than caring what is happening to our country.

They will just let him continue to take us down until the end of his term. Very few of the incumbents should be allowed to keep their jobs when their terms are up. But only the voters can make this happen and we all know how well that works.

Good Morning MIke,

I think it's time for a March on Washington. Enjoy the day!
