Chiquita is at the Table

Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Sunday, July 15, 2018. Our noisy friend, Chiquita Cicada, is cooking breakfast for us this morning. She's hard at work preparing Vanilla Yogurt French Toast for our enjoyment. Chiquita is celebrating the conclusion of FBI Agent Peter Strzok's exhausting and infuriating testimony before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and the House Judiciary Committee. Listening to someone lie over and over again takes a toll. Please join Chiquita for breakfast and a chat. The door will be open in anticipation of your arrival.

Into the Pan

Thanks so much for coming to the breakfast table this morning. I hope you rested up after sitting through the agony of Peter Strzok's ludicrous testimony before two congressional committees. Some of those on the committees were just as ridiculous and infuriating as agent Strzok. Strzok is still an FBI employee which could only happen when you work for the government. In the world most of us live in, we would have been escorted out of our place of employment after the discovery of totally biased text messages concerning the president of the United States. In Strzok's world, misconduct is tolerated or explained away. That is exactly what took place at the hearings. It was evident in Strzok's convoluted explanations of his behavior and his totally skewed definition of bias. He told the joint committees that he was not a Trump fan. That's when Pop and I started laughing. He characterized his criticism as blunt. That knocked Pop and me off our seats onto the floor. He said this with a straight weird face, all the while insisting that he could hate Donald Trump but be totally professional and fair while investigating Trump's possible collusion with Russia. That's when Pop and I took a break to wipe the tears from our eyes and catch our breath. If only we were watching a made for TV movie. If it were, it would be tolerable, but under the actual circumstances it was unbearable.

Climbing Out of Trouble

Strzok spent all his time during the hearing denying any bias. He insisted that his entire career has been one of service, free from bias. His definition of bias must differ from the rest of the world, because his texts to his lover, Lisa Page, were filled with hatred towards the man who would be president and his supporters. Nevertheless, Strzok would have us believe that he could leave his personal opinions and animosity behind while he carried out his job. Even Bob Mueller didn't buy that, so he kicked him off the investigation and put him in Human Resources. He should have put him out to pasture, but this is the government we are dealing with. If there are any consequences for wrongdoing they are, at best, minimal. It is interesting to note, that Strzok wasn't quite sure why he was let go. Finally, he remembered that Mueller had said the appearance of bias might jeopardize the integrity of the investigation. That's quite a move for an investigation that has no integrity or focus. Nevertheless, Strzok insisted that there was no way bias could ever enter into his investigation. The Dems on the committees loved that, and they showed it by applauding. Those that defended his outrageous behavior should have been escorted out of the hearing room. If only that was possible.

Snake Pit

Aside from some brilliant questions from a few members of Congress, the hearings showed the true face of bias. It exists at the FBI, it exists in Congress and in the world at large. Truly professional people can keep their feelings to themselves and out of the workplace. Strzok is not one of them. Those on the committee who sought to defend his actions exemplify quite clearly why it is almost impossible to get anything done in our current environment. Stroke felt comfortable enough in his role as an FBI agent to express his ugly opinions without fear of reprisal. That alone speaks volumes about his judgement and his integrity. After all his years of service in the FBI, how is it possible that he didn't realize that his actions might be discovered? Instead, he felt immune. Instead, he felt above it all, and that is the core of the problem. Arrogance and hatred for President Trump and his supporters rule the day. The ugliness has permeated our media and our government. The devil has been let out of the bag, because we finally have a president who isn't afraid to right wrongs and tell the truth. They say the truth will set you free but sadly, in todays world, the truth is something to fear. Every time President Trump solves a problem that no one else could solve, it proves that the will to correct long standing problems was never there. Before Trump, people in powerful positions were quite content to keep the status quo. Let the poor stay poor, let the middle class keep struggling, let inequities between nations keep building and let our borders remain vulnerable. Perhaps ignoring problems seems, in a skewed way, the route to job security as long as the voters don't catch on. The voters caught on.

There is a new sheriff in town, and thinking people everywhere are loving it. The Strzoks of this world are being revealed for the angry, biased fools that they are. President Trump doesn't suffer fools, and neither should we. Let's make America great again!

      Here is a little known and peripherally relevant factoid: On August 23, 1968, the Youth International Party nominated Pigasus for President at the Democratic Convention in Chicago, Illinois. Pigasus was a full-grown pig.

      The relevance here is that the Democratic Party, in all its wisdom, has established a precedent for nominating animals for president. Anyone nominating Chicken Little should be ready to cite this precedent.

      Unfortunately, Pigasus would have been unable to meet the Constitutional age requirement to qualify for the Presidency, since the upper end of a pig’s expectancy is somewhere around ten years.

      False history factoid: The failure of Pigasus to secure the nomination resulted in the riots that occurred at that convention.

      Pigasus walked away with a furrowed frown on his forehead.

      It's outrageous how Whoop-Tee-Do maintains her seat on "The View," with her insane, overbearing behavior!! How dare she treat a guest (Judge Jeanine) so egregiously!

      They ARE totally out of control...these Looney Libs.....no doubt. It is beyond disturbing. It's my belief we need to simply ignore their childish hissy-fits, let them wear out from their absurd behavior until.....as we have all noted is inevitable......they literally burn their very existence down to ashes.

      Yes, "T," it's become public, common knowledge that the "more sane" of their dying group, have responded to the "walk away" mission. This will continue to spread and it is deserved! The sooner, the better.

      I have to say it. Do the republicans really have control since Trump was elected president? How many Flakes:) do they have like him?

      They have wasted these two years, and if they supported Trump we could have turned the investigations from Trump to Obama et al.

      The democrats got a false Russia Trump collusion investigation going in Congress and the FBI and it turned up a dearth of evidence. But, the Republicans having real and volumes of evidence couldn't get a real investigation going in the FBI or DOJ.

      An analogy would be that the republicans are flying the Kitty Hawk and they can get it going up in the air. The democrats on the other hand were sitting on a V2 rocket.

      We have a "republican" president but his team is still filled with democrats and Obama sympathizers. Trump has made some really bad appointments and that was expected. What is not expected is that these appointments are leaving too slowly. And time is progress, and if there is little to no progress, then it is a waste of time.

      The old saying that East is East and West is West and never the twain shall meet is an apt description of the democrat and republican parties.

      I am in self therapy. I have committed myself to watching at least one hour of Don Rickles every day:)

    • tsadjatko profile image

      Personally, I hope the idiocy keeps up and gets worse going into the next election because the more sane on the left are already saying their behavior is way over the top and is working against them. People are sick of the constant attacks and smears, it’s like crying wolf, the more they do it the less anyone will believe it and when the investigation is over and Trump exonerated they’ll have to launch against Mueller for colluding with Trump and the Russians - that’s how insane this will all end up.

      Ahhh, Yes, as a matter of fact, you did say that. On the tape, he sounds so sincere and enthusiastic, I wonder if he has turned the corner? Or do you think it was just an isolated moment of "reality" for him? I haven't heard him say much of anything publicly as of late. Perhaps he has just toned it down a bit. If only more & more people would SEE the actual facts and truth and take down the huge walls of defensiveness. (sigh)

      Anyway, thanks for confirming the notification false number.

      BTW, I thought you might like what I will now use for the Democrat Party.

      "The democrat party is the party run by Chicken Little, and the sky is always falling".

      Chicken Little, also known as the Democrat Party and sometimes as Hilary Clinton, is a folk tale with a moral in the form of a cumulative tale about a Democrat who believes the world is coming to an end. The phrase "The sky is falling!" featured prominently in the story, and has passed into the English language as a common idiom indicating a hysterical or mistaken belief that disaster is imminent.

      Just a thought.

      I found Mr. Strzok’s testimony entertaining. Of particular note was the way Mr. Strzok glared when he was expressing anger, lowering his forehead, tightening his face up into a frown, and staring through the upper half of his eyes. It reminded me of Ronda Rousey putting on her warning face before she charges into an opponent. However, I had watched Ronda Rousey explain this look to an audience on television (forget which show) when she was talking about her preparations for a wrestling encounter. The result was I took his scrunched up glare to be part of his training on how to put on a show of anger. Maybe he watched the same show.

      All that aside, what is “counterintelligence” anyway?

      There’s something about the phrase counter-intelligence that reminds me of the old sixties phrase for government workers in general, when they were collectively referred to as bean-counters. I never understood the origins of that phrase either, but something about it makes me think of the smell of a swamp. Beans, swamp-smell, scrunched up facial expressions … maybe it’s not anger at all, but a simple result of processing too many beans.

      Your summary is bias. The Republicans looked stupid just like the time before when they attacked Rosenstien. They lowered themselves to a show that was worst then Jerry Springer. They showed how weak and pathetic they truly our. If we looked at their cell phones we would find worst then bias, we would probably find obstruction of justice. If the House Republicans ended their investigation then why do they keep looking into the FBI and anyone else who has dirt on the President. Remember the President himself keeps saying he has nothing to hide. Every Democrat their saw it was a waste of time and the FBI seems unconcerned. Muller the next day indites another 12 Russians and does not name the connections because its obvious who will be indited soon. This President is a Traitor and will stop at nothing if we let him but Justice is coming sooner then we think.

These are officials who sit in powerful positions, who don't leave when presidents do, who watch presidents come and go...they influence policy, they influence presidents"...Since 911 the power of the intelligence community has increased to the point where they are now considered by some as a "4th" branch of government, autonomous from the Executive...Ever try to take away a man's rice bowl ..?

      I had to look all this up as I had not heard of it. Then I watched some of his testimony. Smirks in those kinds of interrogations always reveal an arrogant person who is lying. Being kicked off the team by Mueller, being sent to Human Resources (that's certainly not an advancement) and being escorted out of the building is significant. What a three ring circus indeed. I started a facebook group a few days ago with the sole purpose of sharing good news. On a national level, no one has come up with anything. Fortunately, we have had lots of various other kinds of good news. Political news is not for the faint of heart.

Sessions is a miserable disappointment and he must go, Mueller is a dangerous player and he must fold up his knives and leave. Those at the top of the IRS, Justice Dept, and every other branch f government should be relieved of their duties if it is determined that they are doing a miserable job.

      Maven, when you say “everyone in the FBI knows this” you must be referring also to all the so called unnamed checks and agencies of the FBI Strzok says are below and above him that would never have allowed his bias to be expressed in his work? What a joke his ending statement was, if he could have been questioned more I’d have asked him specifically who they are and how would they police what he was doing but of course time was up for questioning so that’s when he played this bogus defense that the FBI has all these restrictions on his activities - they had no incentive to reign him in whatsoever nor did they care.

      Brad you are so right it boggles the mind how he is snookered by the deep state and why in the world he didn’t demand further investigations of all the Clinton issues. Just makes no sense whatsoever so there must be something there we will never know about.

      I have to tell it like I see it. President Trump is responsible for a lot of this circus. He should have never kept a single top manager in any of the US intelligence agencies. He should have replaced James Comey, Rob Rosenstein, Andrew McCabe and Sally Yates on inauguration day. The FBI couldn't have run any worse without them then it did by keeping them. It was the intelligence agencies that created the fake dossier, they didn't even investigate the DNC allegations of their email server being hacked. They didn't really investigate HRC, and the list goes on.

      His judgement of Jeff Sessions was only made worse by not replacing him. As soon as Jeff Sessions recused himself, it should have been, time for him to go.

      So, while Trump is still my guy, he didn't do the right thing. He let politics put a chill on him. Next are the republicans, if they were a football team, Trump the quarterback would have seen each play from the ground.

      It is not only the democrats that are the problem, but the republicans have wasted their first two years of control. How many Jeff Flakes or John McCain are there in the republican congress?

      It was the people that elected Trump to the presidency, and it is the people that need to protect him while he works for them. If he were to now fire all those people that he should have done in the beginning then it would fall to the people to protect him from the wrath of the democrats and the Rhinos. If the people want to MAGA, then it starts with them, and so far they haven't lived up to their party.

      2018 should not have the democrats take control of congress, if they do then Trump and the people have lost.

      By the People, For the People and Of the People

      It is time for the people to realize that Trump needs their help.

      The democrats sold the people, their people on

      All men are created Equal and life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.

      Which are words sent to England to justify the revolution, but none of that is really true, they are just words.

      First, All men are not created equal. And men means men not mankind. The democrats love abortion, and that doesn't allow creation much less equality.

      The US Constitution

      Black Men were counted as 3/5 of a man. And notice, women, black or any color didn't register at all. That makes "men" men and not mankind. The founders and people of that time were British, and they are very particular in the wording they use.

      Voting

      The democrats use the 14th amendment with its equal protection clause to pass their reengineering of society. Yet, history shows that the 14th amendment was not used for equal protection, life, liberty of pursuit of happiness.

      It took the 15th amendment to make black men equal to vote. If the 14th amendment had that chore, then we wouldn't have needed the 15th amendment.

      It took the 19th amendment to allow women of any and all colors the right to vote. Once again, if the 14th equal protection was really meant for equal protection, then we wouldn't have needed the 19th amendment.

      Also, If All Men Were Created Equal then we wouldn't have needed the 13th amendment would we?

      It is like eating comfort food to really think that all men are created equal. But one only has to look at the reality of life to know it is a crock.

      Today, the democrats are focusing outside the country at illegal aliens, while ignoring America and Americans. They know that there is a serious homeless problem in the US, and they want to bring in more people, foreign people? They know that there is also a serious drug problem in the US, that is made critical because of the billions of dollars of illegal drugs coming in from the Mexican drug cartel Yet, they don't want a wall to deal with it.

      They also support resistance against the president, and give themselves accolades for doing it. They have done it since election day, and they have increased their resistance, as most of their attempts have failed. They are the swamp, and that is why they cheer Strzok and the others.

      Today, we don't have to guess how the people in the North felt about the people in the South. We experience that feeling everyday, as we look at the left and some on the right creating a virtual Civil War.

      The only people that are protesting today, are those people that want to take down Trump and the country with him, if that is what it will take. Where are the vote of confidences from those that support Trump. Forget about the biased polls, if everyone would send their messages of support to president Trump and members of congress that support him. While sending messages of disappointment to those that are trying to resist. Then we might see a change in congress.

      If that fails, then we have to do it at the polls.

      The congress and the people have to support the president in actions, not words.

      it is amazing that the democrats are running on anti Trump, anti American and hate and violence as their political platform. If they win congress, then we have lost. And we lost because we let them win.

      As for Strzok, the people need to pressure the republicans in congress to put pressure on the DOJ and the FBI to do their job, and become the symbol of America they have clearly lost this century.

      When people can reject a subpoena by congress, then congress is not an equal branch of the government.

      This was not a tirade, it was a call for the attention for people to be proactive and not reactive in saving the country and the people.

      These congressional hearings have been a very bad joke.

      In conclusion, president Trump allowed a lot of this to happen and take hold, and now he had to undue what he has allowed to happen.

      Forget politics, forget impeachment, and remember why you were elected president. A divided country is a weak country prone to attack by others. Fix the executive branch without the harness of politics. People need to rely on their government, and not be in fear the government may be used against them. But that is where we are today.

      If he can't do that, then it is America and not the Russians that are blackmailing the president.

      Do what needs to be done, and do it now. Then the people will either protect you or they will let you down. Either way, we need to know now.

      Thanks Pop.

      Good Morning, Pop and Chiquita...

      Put some banana slices on that french toast and I'm good to go...Speaking of food, Peter Strzok, Jr. puts a bad taste in my mouth...I cannot think of a more corrupt adjective for him than "slimy", much like the rotten mackerel that stinks and shines in the moonlight...He failed his annual polygraph in 2016, yet was allowed by his supervisors to continue in his position as an FBI counter-intelligence (oxymoron alert) unit director against FBI policy...Everyone in the FBI knows this, yet none of the "thousands of dedicated agents" said a word...The Deep State is very, very deep indeed...Something is rotten in DC, and its not the reflecting pool...

      Speaking of perpetuating corruption in government, why is Koshinen still the head of the IRS..? Why was Mueller named the special prosecutor to investigate Trump campaign collusion with the Russians, when he stated to congress during hearings in 2013, as the then Director of the FBI, that "Following the Constitution was too time-consuming" ?...Why was Rosenstein, Wray, promoted by Trump..? I ask these questions as a Trump supporter, as a constitutional Libertarian, and as a concerned American...

      See you at the Inn, Pop...Your political acumen and all my Inn friends comments are most welcome...

      It would be fabulous if Trump chose Gowdy, but I am not sure that Gowdy wants to be a part of the charade that goes on and on and never concludes. In his world prior to coming to Congress, people paid for their mistakes. Washington is like Disney, all fake. See you at the Inn.

      Common sense hasn't been required in too many fields to mention, much less in every day life. I agree wth you when it comes to Strzok's arrogance. It was maddening to watch him. I sincerely hope he gets what's coming to him. Please join us at the Inn. It exists only in our minds, but it's a great place to be.

      Good Morning TSAD,

      Stroke did plenty wrong, and he has been doing it for a long time. I can only suppose he felt totally insulated from consequences. Then, Mueller got rid of him and reality came into the situation. This guy is bad news plain and simple. The thing is there are more bad eggs that have to be dealt with before this nation's faith in our justice system can be restored. Let's hope that happens. Personally, I think Mueller is one of them. See you at the Inn.

      It is totally unbelievable that the left has gone so far off the rails that the collapse of our nation under Trump would fill their ugly souls with glee. I guess they feel confidant that Bernie will take care of them if that should happen. I'll meet you at the Inn.

      BTW pop & Chiquita, I meant to mention that I am madly in love with Trey Gowdy. I am Sooo upset he's bowing out.

      Gowdy to Strzok: " I don't give a DAMN what you appreciate Agent Strzok. I don't appreciate having an FBI agent with an unprecedented level of animus, working on 2 major investigations in 2016.",,,,BOOM!!!

      (Take THAT and slap it on that idiotic smirk, ya cocky little weasel!!!! ) Hahahahahahahahahahahahh

      Pop and Chiquita, so appreciated your words that "Before Trump, people in powerful positions were quite content to keep the status quo. Let the poor stay poor, let the middle class keep struggling, let inequities between nations keep building and let our borders remain vulnerable."

      So true.

      Paula, great analogy, except circus animals are more benign. Even as wild beasts, they can be tamed to a good extent. Apparently, Congress cannot be tamed....but then why would they try when they are so often rewarded for bad behavior.

      That being said, many of the Republicans were grandstanding too, but at least some of them tried to hash through to the truth despite all the interruptions from Democrats.

      Frankly, I did not watch the whole of Strzok's testimony. His denial of his bias against the president was enough to let me know he wasn't telling the truth. His smirk told me he really didn't care.

      Strzok's outrageous testimony was beyond fiasco caliber and INDEED, aptly described as "agony."

      Watching and listening, for me, brought me back to the age of 5 and my breathless, wide-eyed reaction to the amazing circus acts!! Seeing enormous elephants stand on one leg & a powerful Lion submit to vocal instruction to jump through a hoop, dazed and astounded me as a child. I also recall being comforted by my parents, assuring me I was safe from these wild beasts.

      The only difference between Strzok & the breathtaking performances of circus animals is there is no one to comfort us from the dangers & possible harm caused by Political Beasts & their tricks, dances & unnatural activities! They even have CLOWNS/Libs available to distract and divert the audience from reality.

      How good it is we have become rational, intelligent adults with the ability to discern reality from scripted entertainment aimed at blinding the public! No awards will be given for Strzok's failed performance. I want my money back!!

      POP: Another great breakfast! People working in Washington have the smug arrogance of Peter Strzok because they know nothing will happen to them. Nothing happened to Lisa Page when she did not show up when subpoenaed. It will go on and on. Trey Goudy was great. He has never lost a case. My guess is that President Trump will replace Jeff Sessions with him in January; then heads will start to roll! While I wait for this to happen, I will be at the Inn with my friends...Save me a seat.....

      Great Hub and I agree that it is really a stretch to believe Strzok's claim that he is unbiased. His arrogance is what really gets me. He, like any other American, has a right to his own political views. However, while on the job, especially as an FBI agent during a hotly contested Presidential Election, he should not be broadcasting his political biases on company time especially when it is the American voters/taxpayers who are paying his salary. Even worse than wasting large amounts of company time chatting with his girlfriend is the fact that he used FBI issued equipment (cell phone, computer) to broadcast his personal biases. If he had conducted his illicit affair on his own time using his personal electronic equipment Congress wouldn't have had a reason to haul him before them. Which leads me to wonder, is common sense no longer a job requirement for FBI employees?

    • tsadjatko profile image

      2 months ago from now on

      If Strzok did nothing wrong why did Mueller remove him from the investigation and on June 15, 2018, the day after this IG report was published? Strzok was escorted from FBI headquarters as part of the bureau's internal conduct investigations.The move put Strzok on notice that the bureau intends to fire him, though he has appeal rights that could delay such action. On June 21, 2018, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said that Strzok had lost his security clearance.

      Just think for one moment, if this isn’t investigation was about a Democrat and Strzok behaved this way in his texts and under questioning by congress what do you think would be the reaction from the Democrats? Do you think they’d be saying he should get a Purple Heart for his testimony as one Democrat said? To the contrary he’d be lucky if he could ever get another job anywhere on the planet and if you don’t see that as the truth you really need a brain transplant.

      PS maybe there is some hope for Bill at least what he said is the truth.

      Strozk, with all th attornies telling him that he coldn't comment on the minute details was rediculous. Then, he would get that smirk on his face! Disgusting liar!!!

      I heard this morning that Ms. Page's testimony was quite different. The redacted files sent to congress are also a joke.

      Thanks for a good breakfast.

      We are making America great again. He is keeping his promises and every time he comes through they show their true colors. It’s amazing to me that at this point they would rather see America collapse then see Trump succeed.

      First to Srrzok, every place where I ever worked would have fired me if I had been dipping my pen in company ink.

      Next to the House Democrats in particular and the American left in general, you claim that the Kremlin and Putin were overjoyed at the "spectacle" of Strzok being "bullied. It is the insanity of left wing "resistance" to the duly elected 45th president that warms the hearts of all ruskies.
