Trumped Up Charges

Chiquita is Agitated

Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Monday, June 6, 2016. Our noisy friend, Chiquita Cicada, is at the breakfast table this morning. She has asked for the pleasure of your company this morning to help settle her jangled nervous system. Chiquita just returned from San Jose. She was witness to the violence that erupted after a Donald Trump rally. Lowlife protestors, better described as a mob, attacked Trump supporters by pelting them with eggs, bottles and anything else they could get their hands on. Chiquita was almost killed when a lunatic attempted to clip her wings with a steak knife. Chiquita will be serving oatmeal this morning. I will have some French toast on hand for those among us who are not big fans of oatmeal. We hope to see you soon.

Not Enough Handcuffs

Thank you all so much for joining me. These crazies who choose violence first and foremost as their form of protest deserve to be arrested. Judging from the appearance of these people, I had a strong feeling that they were told to show up and possibly paid to show up. The question is worth exploring, because whoever is behind this disgusting behavior is just as responsible as the fools who are out there on the streets hurting innocent people. The response of the San Jose police was lame at best. The police officers were dressed in riot gear, but their attire did not match their actions. In fact, they barely took any action at all. It was reported that attacks were taking place on the side streets surrounding the venue, and there was no police presence at all.

Defending the Indefensible

There is no question that more could have been done to end the ugly violence. San Jose Police Chief, Eddie Garcia, commended his officers' response to the violence. Standing around and letting things deteriorate is not a correct response to violence. The Police Chief defended his officers stating that they were disciplined and showed restraint. What they showed is that in these messed up times, police are being heavily criticized and even prosecuted for doing their jobs. Thanks to President Obama and the Justice Department, we now have police who would rather stand down than lose their jobs or their lives. I can't even imagine what those under attack felt like when they watched the police just stare at them as they were punched and egged. I know what I felt like, but I am, after all, just a bug with human qualities rather than a human with bug qualities. To add to the insanity, San Jose Mayor Sam Riccardo, a supporter of Clinton, criticized Trump for coming to cities and igniting problems. He went on to say that at some point Trump has to take responsibility for the irresponsible behavior of his campaign. Mr. Mayor, Donald Trump didn't cause these riots. The morons outside are totally accountable for their actions. Let's put the blame where it belongs. It belongs with them, whoever is supporting them, on you for deflecting the issue and on the police for doing nothing to end it.

From the Top Down

Setting a match to an already out of control fire is insane and dangerous. President Obama doesn't help this ugly scene by comparing the San Jose violence to "bad habits" of the Republican Party. Obama accused Republicans of engaging in violence akin to that perpetrated by the losers assaulting people at the rally for Trump. The president has it all wrong. The violence lies squarely in the hands of those who are out of control harming others. The Republicans have nothing to do with it, but perhaps Obama should look in the mirror and realize that he has played a major role in breaking down our society and causing this great divide.

Sane Minds Must Prevail

It's time we put the blame on those who are truly at fault. It's time that we untie the hands of the police and let them do their job without one thousand eyes watching and evaluating their every move. It's time we demand that candidates start telling the truth. We must do the same with all politicians from the president to the local guy on a township committee. We can't keep shifting the blame to others. We can't defend anyone, including our children, from lying in order to save themselves. It's time that we condemn the misguided views and actions of people like the Mayor of San Jose who reacted with anger during the violence. His anger landed on Trump and his supporters and Riccardo should have been taken to task for his dangerous and foolish response. It is time that we take a long needed look into the people behind the protestors. I suggest we do that now. It is the only chance we have of stopping this growing trend of violence, insanity and intolerance.

I for one would Love to see the police be able to arrest anyone that acts like animal. Disorderly conduct, assault, defacing property to name a few charges. Sadly our police can't police anymore, thank you current administration for that.

As for the rally's, I would love to see that investigated. Where are these protesters coming from? If someone is paying them, who? I don't think we will ever find out, it's just the way it is now. You can act like a criminal and we all get to watch.

Fly way Chiquita Cicada, the police can't protect you anymore. They are only allowed to watch and wait.

Pop, I'll meet you for a drink as we watch

As much as I don't like Trump, the violence is completely on the "protesters." Why do they do this? It only helps Trump. Just vote in November. That's all you need to do, especially in California and New Mexico. Those States are already in HRC's column.

I would have to wonder how this would have been handled if it had been a Clinton or Sanders rally? Would the powers to be in San Jose have taken more action against this group of thugs?

There have been many rumors about at least some of these protesters (thugs) being paid to protest. I don't doubt that to be true, but so far nobody has stepped up and admitted they were paid to protest. Until that happens this will remain a rumor.

Behaviorally, our country is starting to look like many of the third world countries where violent protest is a way of life. This will not get better until we have leadership willing to deal with the problem.

Good Morning Jennifer,

This administration and those that follow like sheep have tied the hands of the police and made them sitting ducks for every lunatic with a gun or a brick. We never blame the right people or circumstances for anything in this country. The bad guys win because the good guys have diminished in number. I'll meet you at the Inn. Drinks are on me.

Good Morning lions,

Free speech and freedom of expression have been severely damaged by those on the left. We can only speak when we say what we are told to say. As for the so-called protestors, I have no doubt that boatloads of them are paid to cause riots.

Good Morning Mike,

I think someone should just go up to one of the protestors and calmly ask if he or she is being paid to be there. They are so clueless, I am sure one of them will answer! As for this election, it rightfully belongs in a third world country. The fact that all of this is taking place here is so disheartening. It speaks to an even bleaker future for America. I'll see you at the Inn, Mike.

Pop and Chiquita,

We've reached a point that's not unlike the time of the Late Roman Republic. Typical of that time was 1) Disregard for traditions and protocol. 2) Over the top dialog along with a disrespect for other people. 3) Blatant lies by politicians - and few call them on it. 4) Increasing political violence.

I'm with you that blaming Trump for the violence outside of his rallies is absurd, and I agree also that people like Riccardo need to be spanked. Fact is, there's not enough of societal moral fabric left to spank folks like Riccardo. Welcome to the era of the Late American Republic.

This behavior is sorepulsive and the irony thAt Obama blames republicans for democrat behavior. That message says the violence is justified because he believes trump incited this. The other irony is that the people doing the rioting condemn trump for being a brash, bigoted, hateful man. That justifies it. Pathetic with a capital P.

There is no justice when dealing with the liberal mind. Even a bug knows that. However, this entire election process is very tiring and boring. With over 300 million people in this country, our choices are limited, although Hillary is not an option for me. Now, what?

Good morning, Pop and Chiquita...

The group behind this 3rd world violence is La Raza...

La Raza means “The Race” and it began as a Mexican-specific organization. The group’s motto is “Everything for The Race. Outside The Race…Nothing!” La Raza is a hard-line Marxist organization and it openly expresses hatred for white people...This group is the KKK of Hispanics with a huge following...Obama has a number of La Raza members serving in his administration, including the former head of La Raza, Cecilia Munoz, Obama's Director of the White House Council...She is arguably the most virulent racist in his pathetic administration which is shot through with anti-Semitics, Marxists, loony-tunes Progressives, and America hating apologists...My new name for La Raza is La Cucaracha...

There are no sane minds, just politicians and their control over the party voters. The democrats have made themselves above the law. They are the gospel of politics in the US politics. From setting the definitions based on liberalism to the Teflon protection by making them unilateral ones.

Ask not what is racism, they are racism.

In the arena of US politics, the liberals have turned their numerous weaknesses into their attack points.

The SJ protests, if done by republicans would have been denounced as racism, or some other liberal speak. But, when liberals are the protagonists, it is of course the other side that is the problem.

These protests against Donald Trump are not the American Freedom of Speech, but the opposite as the goal is to prevent Trump from his right to free speech.

This is a republican primary, and the liberals need to contain themselves right now to their own primary. The correct response to whatever irks them about Donald Trump comes in the form of their constitutional right to vote. At the voting places is where they should protest against Trump.

Not in the streets like we are in a 3rd world country.

The voting process is the only American protesting process.

Brad...You are absolutely right, unfortunately we no longer live in that world of common sense...What was up is now down...the Constitution has been turned on its head and all the wisdom therein has spilled out into the sewer we now call the "political Arena"...To my mind there is only one "Arena", that arena described by Teddy Roosevelt in his speech " The Man in the Arena"...

I believe the liberal progressives are underestimating the cold anger and resentment of most legal Americans at this continual affront and attack on American values...That tree of Liberty is in dire need of irrigation...

Good Morning brad,

Our nation has changed and it certainly isn't for the better. If what is right and wrong comes from the top, it is clear that we are in deep trouble. This president does not obey the law. He ignores our immigration laws, writes executive orders like he is an emperor and steps all over the Constitution. He just endorsed Clinton despite the fact that she is under investigation. That alone sets a very clear and ugly message to America. These SJ thugs knew going in that the police response to their actions would be tepid. Most of them probably can't, won't or don't vote. They prefer to hurt people. See you at the Inn.

bradmasterOCcal 3 months ago from Orange County California

I agree, and it appears that the Clinton investigation is going to be about as useful as the Warren Report, and the 911 UnderInvestigation.

Obama endorsing Clinton is his way of forcing her to adopt his legacy. A legacy that should be terminated this year, but Clinton now has no choice but to praise the emperor.

See you at the Inn. Have a great weekend.

maven101 3 months ago from Northern Arizona

Perhaps its the other way 'round...Perhaps Hillbilly told Obama to support her in exchange for her continuing his agenda and insuring his legacy ( having a hard time even associating his name with the term "legacy"..)


bradmasterOCcal profile image

bradmasterOCcal 3 months ago from Orange County California

Maven

It could be either way, don't you think.

There several meanings for the word legacy.

How about this one

"something such as a tradition or problem that exists as a result of something that happened in the past

legacy of:

The war left an enduring legacy of bitterness and suspicion."


breakfastpop profile image

breakfastpop 3 months ago Author

Good Morning brad,

Obama's legacy is one of destruction. He came into office determined to "change" us out of existence as a free and proud nation. Because of a do nothing Congress he got away with all of it. If Clinton gets in, it will be the final nail in the coffin of America.

Good Morning maven,

If Hillary walks into the WH, our country will get the final death blow. Obama savaged all our institutions and our moral compass. We are helpless in the face of Islamic terrorism because Obama is far more concerned with protecting Islam than protecting us. Hillary will continue his tarnished legacy. I will hit the barricades with you. See you at the Inn.

Anything that can really be used to find terrorists before they can act is called Racial Profiling. In reality it is called putting 2 and 2 to come up with a simple math solution of 4 to find the criminal.

The left is caught between a rock and a hard place because of the Orlando shooter. The left is big on lgbt Rights, and Muslim Rights. Orlando contained both of them, so the only avenue for them is to focus on gun control as the problem.

Even though, it appears to be a failure of the government to share information especially during gun purchasing background checks. The Orlando shooter was known by the government to be a Jihadist sympathizer.

Gun control is a red herring because making guns illegal won't stop the bad guys from killing. Look at Israel, do we prefer them blowing us up. And bombs can be made out of simple ingredients that would be difficult to detect their deadly use.

The solution from the left is that all the people have to be punished for the acts of a very few. And even then their solutions still fail.

The Orlando shooter may have been prevented from buying the weapons if the background check included Homeland Security and their list of terrorist sympathizers.

The US didn't learn from the Attack on Pearl Harbor, and that resulted in 911 being successful. And now we don't seem to learn from 911.

Is it possible, the president Obama has too light a touch on national security because he doesn't acknowledge Muslim Terrorists?

Good Morning brad,

I wrote about this very thing this morning. Obama has a vested interest in defending Islam. Hi is not at all concerned with protecting us. He has systematically destroyed our military. Our enemies know all about this and it has emboldened them. We have yet to declare all out war on ISIS. The longer we wait, the more severe the attacks upon Americans will be. This tragedy could have been avoided. This jihadist was being investigated and the case was dropped. If he was being investigated, it means he was trouble. He should have been arrested. Our standards that guide how we roll have to change. See you at the Inn.

I will have to check out your latest hub.

In any case, the investigation should have prevented him from purchasing these weapons. Remember the Alamo, should be Remember Pearl Harbor, and how not doing so resulted in 911.

At the Inn, eating some buttered Kaiser Rolls.

Thanks

I know that no one wants to hear this, but I have a really BAD feeling in my gut that SHE will win this thing. I'm sorry.....bite my tongue (or in this case, my fingers).....Don't even try to tell me you guys are not also nervous about this mess we've got. Trump has shot himself in the foot once too often. Think they'll recruit someone. Maybe Paul Ryan will give in..............???

Damn right I'm nervous, pissed, and madder than hell that the Republican Party couldn't come up with candidates I would be proud to vote for and support....What's to stop a blatantly corrupted, congenital liar, that has Acorn paying Blacks to vote, La Raza inciting Hispanics to vote, women voting with their vaginas, and college kids voting "because it's time for a woman to be president"...

Trump may have a gaff condition, may lack gravitas, and is surrounding himself with neo-conservative retreads, but there is no denying that he loves America, is uncorruptable, and will be unapologetic about America's greatness, American values, and the American people...
