Our Freedom in Jeopardy

Updated on December 22, 2018

Antoine is in the Kitchen

Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Saturday, December 22, 2018. Our French friend, Antoine, is at the stove preparing Bacon Quiche Lorraines for our enjoyment. I am right beside him mixing up a delicious batch of French Lattes. Antoine has been taking note of all the pending investigations, all the lying, all the mean-spirited talk and all the attempts to destroy the presidency of Donald Trump. This nightmare is bad news for all of us. There are those in and out of government who have malice in their hearts and treachery in their blood. There was a time in the past when these words would have been described as hyperbole. Things have changed, dear Poppers, and those that want to bring down the president and his supporters are everywhere,. Some of them are even at the dinner table when we dine with friends and family. A new dawn has arrived, and it does not bode well for our freedoms. Please join Antoine and me for breakfast and a chat. Your opinions mean a great deal to both of us, so come over if you can. We'll leave the door open.


Truth in Reporting is Dying

Thanks so much for joining Pop and me this morning. The mainstream media is now an arm of the left and the democrats. They ignore anything that doesn't fit their narrative, twist stories that seem to support their point of view, and accept lying as the new normal. The last bastion of fair and balanced reporting may be disappearing from the horizon. Fox News Channel has a new Vice President of News. His name is Bill Sammon and he is not a Trump supporter. He also does not support true journalism, so it won't be long before we are all subject to long tirades against our president. Samson has decided that original reporting has to go. All stories that were in the works have been stopped. Some of those stories concerned the Obama administration. Others concerned misconduct during the 2016 election. The new direction for the network will be to cover breaking news reported on other networks. Say good-bye to "fair and balanced." Say hello to brainwashing.


Plans to Bring Trump Down

Robert Mueller's never-ending investigation into the president, his friends, his associates and his family is proof positive that the Deep State is desperate to remove him from office. Plans were underway long before Mueller was appointed to create havoc for Donald Trump. Emails have been revealed that show that the Obama administration ran around like crazed ants to create a "Russia" scandal right before Mr Trump was set to be inaugurated. The emails show that the Obama administration sought the involvement of Senators Cardin and Corker. The plans to destroy Trump were even given a name. They called it Operation Crossfire Hurricane. The General Flynn fiasco was all part of this ugly scenario. The Obama administration, or should I say hit men, believed that they could actually stop Trump from being sworn in. The Russia narrative was born in these early days. The effort is still continuing, and I imagine it will go on as long as Donald Trump is in office. Supposedly, Mueller is set to wrap things up by mid-February. It is almost impossible to believe that Trump will walk away unscathed. It is Mueller's intention to destroy him, and he has an excellent chance of succeeding. When truth no longer matters, horrible things happen, but they don't happen to everyone. The Clinton's are the anointed ones who get to do irreparable harm and avoid paying any price for their behavior. Republicans are not that lucky. They pay for crimes that aren't crimes. They pay for lying to the FBI while the FBI lies to them. There are two sets of rules in our nation. Never has that fact been more apparent than now.


Bang the Gavel

There are sufficient e-mails circulating that prove how duplicitous James Comey was during his tenure as head of the FBI. Now that he is out and asked to testify before a closed session of Congress he has developed amnesia. It's a severe case. He can't remember or recall anything at all. One of the few things he admitted was that he withheld information from Attorney General Jeff Sessions about his meeting with Donald Trump. There was nothing accidental about the Sessions's recusal. Comey and his buddies in the Deep State made sure it would happen. Come knew Sessions was out of the picture. The only one that didn't know was Donald Trump. The Session's recusal led to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein who then appointed Mueller. Comey should be held accountable for deliberately withholding important information from Sessions. Actually, that's the least of his problems. Sessions should be held accountable for being the idiot who allowed all of this to transpire. The deception that has taken place, and that is still taking place is beyond belief. Sadly, we will probably never get to the true bottom of all of this. The guilty will walk free. Innocent people will be hurt. The American people will be the losers in the end. I think we need a miracle.

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!

      Good Morning fp,

      The Trump haters are bringing this nation to its knees in many respects. The fools in Washington have dug in their heels and are refusing to do their jobs. I guess we have to hang in there and hope that all their hatred blows back on them. I have been writing to Schumer,and my two idiots to let them know how I feel. I actually feel better after i do that. I think I will widen my letter writing campaign, now that I realize I can write to anyone. Not too long ago, you couldn't contact someone if you were not in their area. The good thing is that we are not alone. See you at the Inn.

      pop....I try not to read, watch or listen to too much of all the chaos and insanity.....but it's everywhere---non-stop. And what I am seeing and hearing is pretty much doom, gloom and down-right scary.

      Even a concrete wall is bound to crumble eventually, after constant attempts to demolish. How can we possibly know, at this point, what to reasonably expect? We're way beyond our comfort level & the forecast is bleak as hell.

      Trying to maintain a positive attitude or any "hope" becomes more & more difficult......What can possibly be next?

      Dear kris,

      I guess we have to hope that people like us will prevail. If not, I just can't imagine what our nation will be like. Merry Christmas kris, and I will save you a seat at the Inn tonight.

      POP: It is getting worse; however, I am still hopeful that the truth will come out and these offenders will be brought to justice. The only one still pursuing this is Sean Hannity, and with what you have stated about the new direction for Fox News, I wonder if they will try to shut him down as well.

      It is Christmas Eve, and time to be with my friends at the virtual inn.

      Lattes on me!!!!!

      Good Morning Ken,

      I want to believe that, I truly do. I'll keep that thought in my mind and in my heart. Have a wonderful holiday with those you love.

      I wouldn't underestimate the American people. Just look at the French this past month:

      The French are a far more passive and domesticated bunch than we Americans. I can only imagine that should things get bad enough here, people would put aside their petty differences and unite to put an out of control government back in check.

      pop & antoine....When I can clearly sense that you are so down & out and fearful of our impending doom, I know, without a doubt, all of my pent-up hysteria is not my imagination nor paranoia. I can't say this is anything I want to face~yet avoidance is ridiculous. So, here we are.

      What I can't (or won't) allow myself to imagine is the world for my grandchildren & down the line.

      Despite it all....let us enjoy the Holiday Season & experience peace and happiness with our loved ones, at this particular time.

      I appreciate the facts," truth & honesty " you always share with your readers, pop!....Paula

      Dear Tom,

      Of course, you're right, but the resistance is growing like a bad disease. On a happier note, have a wonderful Christmas.

      Pop, I am saddened sometimes and just angry other times. I don't like the change in Fox news. I am so tired of a congress that can't get anything done.

      The far left wants socialism, which would end everything good about our country. Elizabeth Warren said she thinks the government should go in the business of making generic drugs. Is that because the government runs things so well??? What a joke. Where wll this all end?

      I hope you and your family have a Merry Christmas.

      Have you seen the documentary Death of a Nation with Dinesh D;Souza? Very enlightening and disturbing. You can probably get it at your local library. It's worth a look-see.

      Merry Christmas.

      Pop and Antoine,

      The situation looks very dark at present but we must maintain our efforts to prevail. It is all important.

      Good Morning Wesman,

      The efforts to de-stabilize our morals, our values and our system of governing is proceeding at a horrifying pace. Obama got the ball rolling, and his willing America haters are carrying the flag. Have a wonderful holiday Wesman, despite all the trash going on.

      We're in a pre-civil war sort of condition. There's almost nowhere we can be free of far left wing extremist propaganda. It's all anti-American to the core, and seeks to destroy this nation for the purposes of a global governance.

      It's not going to work. They've been trying so hard to disarm us, and flood us with de-humanizing garbage. Like Men can become women. Women can become men.

      Those things are degrading to the mind because we know without any doubt those things can never be true.

      The 'investigation' thing, I saw yesterday, is supposed to be over in February of next year.

      Dear billy,

      I now think that the American people have always been in the dark when it comes to our government. What we don't see and don't know boggles the mind, and is quite scary. Merry Christmas, billy.

      I was watching a documentary about the Reagan Administration last night. Your last few sentences reminded me of that.

      Have a very Merry Christmas, Pop!
