Contempt for Congress

Updated on May 5, 2019

Bug is in the Kitchen

Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Sunday, May 5, 2019. Our friend, Bug, is at the stove preparing Orange Maple French Toast for our enjoyment. I am beside Bug mixing up Triple Expresso Martinis to add to the fun. Bug is as annoyed as I have ever seem him. The Mueller fiasco should have ended when the Mueller probe ended. The Democrats, who can't accept anything that doesn't go their way, have continued to attack the findings. No one should be surprised by their reluctance to give up the witch hunt. They have nothing else going for them, and doing their job is just not on the horizon. The American people should hold Congress in contempt. They have failed all of us, and it is time to hold them accountable. Please join us this morning for breakfast and a chat. We'll leave the door open.

They Refuse

Thanks so much for joining Bug and me this morning. President Trump told the nation that there was no collusion from day one of the bogus Mueller probe. He also assured all of us that he did not obstruct the investigation. Obviously, that is true, as well. The agonizing investigation went on uninterrupted by the administration. In the normal course of events, the hideous Mueller ordeal would be over. If the Democrats have their way, it will never be over. They refuse to accept Mueller's findings. They refuse to accept Attorney General Barr's reports. They refuse, they refuse, they refuse. They are practiced at refusing. In their stunted minds, the election wasn't decided fairly. Because of their dementia, the people of the United States have been put through hell on earth. Their collective madness and off the charts anger must be curbed. Their actions from day one of the investigation must be accounted for. They have impeded progress in the nation. If not for the determination of President Trump, we would have accomplished nothing in the last two years. Despite massive obstruction. President Trump has accomplished a great deal. Congress has failed us completely and, although the Democrats own the lion's share of all the wasted time, the Republicans are not blameless. Now is the time to set the record straight and force Congress to get to work or get out.

Break Out the Cuffs!

Although the investigation into collusion is over in the minds of sane people, there is still important work to be done. This nation won't be able to heal if we don't root out the inventors of this farce and punish them. Faith in our system of justice will not be restored if we allow the "bad guys" to walk free. The American people are owed a House cleaning and a Senate cleaning. Those at the highest levels of the FBI, like James Comey, must be brought to justice. The Obama administration is culpable, as well. Obama unleashed one of the ugliest periods in American history. There was a concerted effort to stage a soft coup in America. It s almost impossible to digest that reality. People in high places plotted and planned to unseat a duly elected president. The only thing missing from the scenario was the military, and we can be very thankful for that. Nevertheless, it was a coup, and in order to restore our faith in our government, there must be accountability. The Jerry Nadlers of this world have had their moment in the sun. He, and so many others, should be censored for bad, deceitful behavior and sent out to pasture. Their presence in Washington is corrosive and devisive.

Unanswered Questions

There are plenty of bad actors in Congress. Some of them are newly elected. Some of them shouldn't be there at all. We have pressing issues that must be dealt with. The crisis at our border is just one of them. It is inconceivable to believe that Congress is unable and unwilling to deal with the crisis at our borders. We are being invaded by good and bad people from all over the world. Our country, which is so often vilified, is a beacon of hope and opportunity for millions of people. The truth is, we have no idea who this people are and what they really want of our nation. Another truth is that we cannot, as the Dems would want, open our borders to anyone who wants in. If the Dems had their way, America would cease to exist. Saner minds have to prevail, but Congress doesn't have the very minds we need. For Congress to refuse to deal with this problem is utterly contemptible. They should be charged with dereliction of duty. They should not be paid for refusing to do the nation's work. They were elected to represent us, and in reality they are representing their own selfish desires to obstruct progress and the president. They are wasting time and money pushing for insanities like reparations for slavery. They behave like Junior High kids promising a soda machine in every classroom if they are elected. We need to demand that they do their jobs. And then we need to remember who didn't act in good faith.

Exert the Powers We Have

We need to step up to the plate and make our feelings known. We need to demand better representation. We need to expect accountability. Let's begin by going on a letter writing campaign. If each of us writes to our reps and anyone else we can reach to demand that they get to work, it can have an impact. It is certainly worth a try. Then we need to remember who had our best interests in mind when it is time to vote. We need to banish the long time hacks and the new ones. We need the best people representing us. We certainly deserve better than what we have now.

      Good Morning Pino,

      I agree with everything you have aid. I also believe Trump will win again. The Dems have nothing to stand on, so the Mueller garbage keeps getting played over and over again. What a bore! It is also an outrage. I plan to dash off a few emails to the fools in Congress who do nothing about anything. See you at the Inn.

      Good Morning Lori,

      The Dems don't have a leg or fact to stand on, which explains why they are still carrying on about the Mueller findings. It won't get them elected, but they are too stupid to know that. Actually, that's a good thing, because I have no desire to live in a Socialist country where dinner is the family pet. See you at the Inn.

      I had the exact same reaction. I wanted to strangle her ugly sneering face. Who in the world elects these people? They have to be equally disgusting. I think I'll dash off a note to this creep this morning. I plan to bombard every moron with emails, texts and calls. See you at the Inn.

      Good Morning brad,

      I agree completely. This nation needs accountability. Without that there will never be a return to the respect we need to have for the Department of Justice and the FBI. I am hopeful that Barr can get the ball rolling. Leave the investigating to competent investigators and tell Congress to solve the nation's problems. See you at the Inn.

      POP: While I agree with everything you have stated, the Democrats are setting themselves up to lose and lose big if they continue with the Russia/Mueller scenario. I for one, who have had enough of it, want them to continue because Americans outside the Beltway are sick and tired of it and will take that to the voting booths. I believe that Trump is a shoe in for 2020, and the Democrats know it, as well. Look at the economy! It is booming. Can the Democrats criticize our president for that? No. Hence the continuance of the Russia probe. By the time of the election, the Democrats will hang their heads in shame, and MSNBC, and CNN might be off the air!

      I am off to the Inn, for your great choice in breakfast. I may have doubles of everything! Save me a seat.....

      Well said, Lori. The verse you quoted lets us know, in no uncertain terms, how to recognize evil. Moral relativism calls evil good, etc., etc. What more do we need to know, really?

      Any political party that calls a good man bad, that promotes infanticide, that takes away your Liberty in the name of progress has lost their way, to put it mildly. What sane or moral person could ever justify being a part of that unless they are ignorant, angry, or lying to themselves. The first reason we can forgive because they don't know any better, but after that, something is terribly wrong. Thank you again for such a well stated comment.

      Trump has done a wonderful job for our country and I hope he wins again. The left has done a good job of whining, screaming, pounding their fists, destroying life, and distorting liberty.

      If Trump loses the election, it will be from the democrats continuing their false accusations, and keeping a dark cloud over president Trump. If he wins the election, then it will be four years of the resistance that continues today.

      Without the republicans making serious and timely investigations on Hillary and all those that kept her free from indictment, and all those that allowed Mueller to continue a hoax investigation and even continue it up to and five months after the 2018 election the distraction from MAGA will continue.

      Blind faith about Trump winning needs to be countered with a serious offensive movement on the swamp.

      Yes phone calls and emails are also a great idea. I want to bombard everyone I can think of. I'll do all three every day! Your son rocks in my view. I'm not surprised. He has a great role model in you. I'll meet you at the Inn. Bring your son along. I 'd love to shake his hand.

      Dear ,

      I totally agree with you. To me it was a clear cut case of obstruction. Loretta Lynch was guilty of the same thing along with Bill Clinton. There are so many wrongs that have to be set right, that the task seems impossible. Congress has upped the meaning of "a double standard" to new heights. The Republicans are always late to the party. Most often they don't show up at all. See you at the Inn, T.

      Pop and Bug....Writing letters is a great idea. We can also make telephone calls and send emails in response to statements our so-called representatives make on their websites. I'll be doing the email thing this week. After watching the Democrats slander Barr's good name during the hearing this past week, I was outraged. Just when you think they can't go any lower...

      My son watched the hearings as well and he was stark raving mad. He was on the phone the next day calling his representatives, and boy, oh boy, did he give them an earful! He laid it all out, point by point, and in the end he told them that "as a Hispanic male, (this was his way of letting them know that not all Hispanics believe the lies & that they would never have his vote) I am thoroughly disgusted by the shameful, sleazy behavior of the Democrats, and how dare you slander Barr's good name; I would rather you spend your time legislating instead of attacking a man you voted into office, knowing full well he is more than qualified for the job because he has a stellar reputation." He said much more of substance, but I won't go on and on. Needless to say, I was the proud mama. (I heard the whole thing and it was awesome.)

      Anyhow, when I send the email, I'll be sure to let them know I'm a Hispanic female who sees through the lies. (It's too easy for them to assume all Hispanics vote Democrat, so this is my small way of sticking it to them.)

      Anyway, Barr will follow through on investigating the investigators, but I wouldn't want to be in his shoes. The Democrats are engaged in a full out war against him and they play dirty....really, really dirty. It's rather amazing that the likes of Nadler, Pelosi, and all the rest of them can sleep at night, actually.

      So, my friends, let's please pray for Barr. He needs the protection of the angels and the Lord above. I pray for his safety all the time. For those of you who believe in prayer, please join me. Thanks, friends.

      I have a question. Given all the evidence that Comey himself gave us of how Hiliary broke the law, and then his bogus decision to not prosecute her (based on no intent which was not even required by the law) why wasn’t that obstruction of Justice?

      Nobody ever asked that question did they? Even when according to the DOJ rules he is not even the one who is suppose to make that decision?

      Why didn’t one Republican back then scream obstruction of justice? To me it was cut and dry! And the Democrats scream obstruction because Trump thought of firing Mueller? Not an action but a thought? Comey and the DOJ took action, they decided not to prosecute an obvious crime. That’s obstruction of the worst kind if you ask me.

      Dear brad,

      What a mess! I have to say that despite all the lying and conniving, Trump will win again. The proof is in the pudding and the pudding tastes just fine. You make some excellent points and you have created a trail of mayhem that must be followed with the end result being orange jumpsuits on parade. I'll meet you at the Inn.

      I am so tired of the obstructive Dems. I think Barr is looking at how this started and there are many bad actors for sure. It is time for congress to get some things done! All they can think about is obstruction and the next election. I am watching less news as it is so depressing. See you at the inn Pop.

      Bug has nailed this one.

      You may want to delete my general comment, as it is lengthy, but on the topic.

      "The point is that the republicans lost the opportunity to make a difference before 2018, and they couldn't make a difference now if they tried. They don't appear to be trying at all.

      Ryan and McCain left on their own, so that doesn't count for republicans doing it.

      Do you really want people like Mitt Romney to be a leader in the republican party?

      Exactly what is the republican political platform, and back track it to 2017 to today to see if there is any change or continuity?

      That is why, if I were president Trump, I would run as an independent. It would be a real vote of confidence. It would separate those that want Trump from those that work against Trump.

      For Trump it would be a no lose venture. If he wins then the vote is confident, and if he loses he would have taken the country off of the resist Trump and maybe back on to MAGA even without Trump, doubful?

      The democrats would have to deal with the republican, and Trump. The republican would have to deal with the democrats and Trump. Neither the republicans nor the democrats have done anything for the country and the people. Trump is the only one that can run on performance and putting the country and its people first.

      If a republican or a democrat could beat Trump running as an independent, then the people don't deserve MAGA. Trump is the only one that even cares about MAGA.

      The democrat voters do what they always do follow the party, but the republican voters are a disappointment. Even more disappointing are the Trump voters that would vote for someone else.

      As for the topic of this article, the republicans with the Mueller report in and available should be now moving swiftly to investigate what Mueller didn't investigate. Starting with Mueller and Comey over their conspiracy to get a special counsel. And then include Rosenstein who fired Comey and then appoints Mueller. If this had happened to the democrats and Hillary you can imagine their rage. I expect the republicans and Trump to do what the democrats would have done.

      The investigation should start leading up to when the FBI made Trump a target of any investigation. That is my opinion was the Australian and Papadopoulus meeting. And considering that nothing become of that meeting, Papadopoulus got 14 days for lying. Is that really the seed for a 3 year investigation and unlimited spying on Trump? NO!

      Add in the Carter Page as that brought in the Russians, when the DNC alleged that the Russians hacked their emails. And that would bring in the US intel agencies to be investigated as to why they didn't verify the allegation by actually getting on the DNC email servers and making their own forensic analysis. And how do 17 independent US intel agencies stand behind that allegation and the unverified Steele report. 17 agencies and not even one investigation into the report, that is incompetence or a conspiracy, In either case, it warrants a deep investigation.

      That is just the tip of what I think should be done Now!

      Finally, imo, these hoax investigations have done a better and more strategic influence on the 2018 election for the democrats. Now, with the Mueller report exploding as a gas cloud, it now is influencing the 2020 election.

      This influence was intentional by the democrats from even before Trump won the election, and it continued with the Kavanaugh hearing as one example, and then the Mueller report that could have and should have been ended in the summer of 2018 not only went to the 2018 election. It went five months past it, and now is influencing the 2020 election.

      This is a clear and present danger to the integrity of US elections. No foreign power could have accomplished the adverse influence achieved by the democrats."
