The Devil's in the Dems

No Bugs, Just Pop

Good Morning Breakfastpoppers. Today is Sunday, November 18, 2018. The Bugs have left town to get together with their families for Thanksgiving. It's just me in the kitchen and I have decided to prepare a Texas Breakfast Casserole this morning. I'm not sure of all the ingredients, but I'll do my best. For extra measure I'll throw in a dash of voter fraud. If you are in the mood to get together, please join me at the table. I'll be serving Bloody Mary's along with the casseroles. I hope to see you soon.

The Party of No

Thanks so much for joining me this morning. Many of us will be celebrating Thanksgiving with those near and dear to us. Some of us will be celebrating Thanksgiving alone, because politics has divided our families. The thought of flinging turkey across the table is not that appealing. However you choose to celebrate, enjoy the day and take a bit of advice from me. Leave politics at the door, or you will be shown the door before you even get to the turkey. Let's face it, these are very contentious times. The Dems are devoid of a sense of humor so cracking jokes about the Cortez child probably wouldn't sit well. If you are a Trump supporter, I have no doubt that the mere mention of his name could send you into Thanksgiving exile. In fact, you may never be invited to sit around the table again, so bite your tongue and behave. Of course, if you have Dems at the table and they have no self control, all bets are off. If you have to leave in a hurry, prepare a back-up plan. Perhaps, a few turkey sandwiches stashed in the trunk would be a good idea.

Fun Times Lie Ahead

Now that the Dems have taken back the house, be prepared for a rocky ride. This group doesn't play well with others, so expect a lot of noise and aggravation. With the Dems in charge, we can forget about repealing and replacing the nasty Obamacare fiasco. In a make-believe world, the Dems would try to compromise and make peace with the Republicans. In a make believe world, Dems would actually try and govern in a way that benefits this nation and its citizens. Having hope is a good thing, but being delusional is another cup of tea. If Pelosi remains in power her first priority will be to reform campaign finance laws and ethics requirements. This almost funny goal will be a pathetic attempt to demonstrate that Dems care about reform. Try not to choke on your casserole. The Dems are kicking around the idea of stopping large political donations, which is funny because that is what Pelosi is known for. They are certainly going to require that Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates release their tax returns. They will, of course, continue to hound President Trump for his returns. If only they were that insistent about asking for the release of Obama's birth certificate. What was finally released was phony and absurd. One goal which they have spoken about is to reverse the tax cuts that Americans have been enjoying. They most certainly will raise the gas tax, if they can get away with it. And then there are the never ending investigations into everything Trump. This goal will get even uglier than it is now, and the nation will suffer because of it. If they get their way, they'll keep Mueller on forever, giving him free rein to investigate and destroy as many lives as possible. The Dems seem to enjoy investigations, as long as the spotlight doesn't turn on them. I trust they will refuse to fund the wall, but they will carry on about the sad migrant men looking for money to send back home to their beloved countries. They aren't coming here for asylum. They are coming here for money while waving the flags of the very countries they say have persecuted them. We can''t expect the Dems to help with this catastrophe. All they see are votes, and the rest of us can go to hell.

Pray for Peace

In the spirit of Thanksgiving and the upcoming holiday season, I will pray that the Dems and the fake Republicans come together on some issues. They can certainly help lower the cost of prescription drugs. That is the president's goal, and the Dems have said they want to do the same thing. They can also work together to lower the cost of healthcare without lowering the quality. I think funding the wall in exchange for a coherent immigration policy would be a splendid move. I could go on, but I may find myself creating a fairy tale, and that is something I don't want to do.

I leave you with these words. Let's hope for the best but prepare for the worst. It works with hurricanes, why not with politics? Enjoy your Thanksgiving, and remember, "mum's the word."

      Let's face it, Congress is a toothless tiger. They conduct investigation after investigation and accomplish nothing. All the bad characters walk. The FBI is good at going after the small potato, but the really bad actors are off limits. In fact, some of those bad actors are in the FBI and Justice Department. That leaves us with our hands wringing in frustration. I have had enough of this charade.

      All that is not Gowdy’s fault. I don’t think he or the committee could charge anyone anyway. His investigation of Benghazi is what revealed Hiliary had a personal server in her home and even so we saw how the FBI ptotected her on that.you can’t beat the deep state.

      Nothing will really change until the public sends a clear signal that behavior of the likes of Cummings, and the rest of the Democrat leadrship is not going to be tolerated anymore.

      T...

      What has Gowdy actually accomplished with his Benghazi and Hillary email rhetoric..? Nothing...No one has been indicted, no one has been brought to justice, no one has paid a penalty for their corruption of the oath and trust given to them by Americans...Words are meaningless without action...Now he turns on Trump insisting the FBI only did what the public expected them to do, even though agents in the FBI conspired to defeat a candidate for the presidency of the USA...His focus on Trump's daughter is curious and suggestive of post-congress aspirations...His 3 month window is simply setting the stage for Cummings and friends to provide another side show to deflect focus from the missing 30,000 emails Hillary "lost"...

      True, and after all that Hiliary did withhout prosecution what grounds could they possibly have to do anything to Ivanca or anyone in the whitehouse - Ivanca didn’t use it for classified information or deleted anything, both crimes Hiliary escaped. Just more witch hunt activity.

      Dear T,

      Any investigation of her emails is beyond hideous. The Secretary of State played it fast and loose with our nation security, and gets a pass. It has been said that Comey used his e-mail unlawfully, so he was loath to pursue her. More important to our future is the fact that a fool like Cummings will be in charge of anything. I just lost my appetite!

    • tsadjatko profile image

      Gowdy is just doing his job and Elijah Cummings, probably the most dishonest and partisan Hiliary groupy Democrat on the committee will be taking Gowdy’s place when he leaves. You know he’d be launching an investigation, best Gowdy gets it started while still in control and can keep it honest at least to start.

      Dear maven,

      You make a good but sad point. I really had respect for Gowdy, but now I wonder what he's up to. It's almost impossible to keep up with all the twists and turns in this literally, mad, mad world. I am going to try my best to block out all the noise for a couple of weeks. Enjoy your turkey! We're having king crab and lobster!

      Pop...Makes one wonder...When Gowdy leaves office what was offered him in exchange for the charade of appearing bi-partisan..?

      Inquiring minds want to know...

      Good Morning maven,

      People like Snipes and all the others you mentioned get away with everything. Some even get away with murder, and that's not just an expression. Now Ivanka is under scrutiny for her use of a private server for government e-mails. Gowdy is leading the pack, which shocks me. Hypocrisy is alive and well.

      Pop...

      Snipes incompetence and corruption boggles the mind...This has been going on in Broward County since 2002 yet no one has held her accountable, including the newly elected Senator and present Governor Scott...Snipes has since retired, proving corruption rules in today's political arena...(Including Lerner, Brennan, Clapper, Lynch, and Comey, among others still collecting 6 figure retirement checks))...

      Little known fact: Lois Lerner, corrupt IRS director, was defended in her corruption trial by DOJ attorneys...The government takes care of its own...

      T...You are right...follow the money all the way to the end...When Republican ad money is factored in does the net effect prove a minus or plus for conservatives..?...Considering where that money is spent, the MSM benefits, which means conservatives lose...

    • tsadjatko profile image

      6 months ago from now on

      Maven don’t forget the money! The billionaires funding the democrat candidates! And where does all thst money get spent? On the MSM, making progressives richer so they can hire more liberal biased journalists. It’s a win win for the Democrat party whether the democrat gets elected of not! This explains why the Dems won the house.

      Good Morning maven,

      Thank you so much for your always insightful and brilliant commentary. I do believe we have lost our way. How's it possible for a single judge from San Francisco to block a president's decision and the rule of law? Anyone seeking asylum must enter the country through a legal port of entry and go before a judge. This Obama appointed judge has declared that it's okay to cross the border anywhere. This is outrageous. It is also outrageous that the elections in Florida we're allowed to continue on for as long as they did. This woman Snipes broke the law and that should have been the end of it. Lawlessness is being tolerated and that is a very slippery slope for all of us.

      On a happier note, enjoy your Thanksgiving.

      Good evening, Pop...

      There are few freedoms more precious than one person, one vote...It's done in private, it's non-confrontational, and done with good conscience and aforethought...

      We have allowed the corruption of this freedom through ignorance, apathy, or ideological fervor...Existing laws are not enforced and new laws are created by states that support the corruption of this freedom for the preservation of political power...

      We now have in this nation "City States"...Cities that dictate to the federal government what laws they will or will not enforce...Cities that allow "Sanctuary" status to non-citizens and refuse to assist federal agencies from completing their duly assigned enforcement of immigration law...Will these city states form their own Praetorian Guard or army like Sparta, Athens, Genoa, Florence, and many others..?

      Were it not for the electoral college our federal and state elections would be decided by large, urban cities...Does anyone that cares about individual freedoms really want to have cities like Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, and Philadelphia control the economic, culture, and educational direction of our nation..?

      Progressives , unable to remove the electoral college, are now resorting to "open borders" to effect change in American demographics leading to persistent gerrymandering and voter manipulation targeting conservative enclaves...

      If my fellow hubbers are looking for an answer I must admit I have none that would prevent apathy or determinant ignorance...Human nature is what it is; individual, socially influential, economically affected, and the level of critical thought within...

      Happy and thoughtful Thanksgiving to all lovers of individual freedom and to the men and women that protect those freedoms...See you at the Inn, Pop...Looking forward to that Texas casserole...Recipe please...

      Pop....I heard this but I don't know if it's a rumor. I've been told the best way to enjoy and digest an enormous Thanksgiving dinner without "bloat," is to swallow sips of Bloody Mary cocktails between each bite.

      A friend of mine tried this last year and after his 3 days in the hospital, he claims he felt, strong, rested, starving & ready to take out the leftovers! I don't think he'd lie to me. Peace, girlfriend!

      Good Morning Lori,

      Snipes is well known for committing fraud. Finally, she is out and the true winners are in. Let's hope they clean up this swamp in Florida and elsewhere before the next election. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

    • tsadjatko profile image

      6 months ago from now on

      Lori, the Democrats know going in they have to cheat and lie because if any voter knows what they are really all about they’d never vote for them.

      There is something drastically wrong in Florida when a recount shows over 40,000 votes disappeared or were cast to the wrong candidate or were lost or just what happened to them? What I’d like to know is did the total votes cast change and by how much but I can’t find that in the news.

      It really appears that the dems somehow managed to negate over 40,000 votes for Scott in the recount but it just wasn’t enough - time to fire the coach!

      Hi BP, I just read that in Florida the recount put Republican Rick Scott in the Senate office. He beat Bill Nelson by 10,000 votes. I don't understand why voter fraud is logical to those that commit it. If that's the only way you can win that says something.

      I'm glad you're going to chill for the holidays. Depsite the terrible shape our country is in, we still have it good compared to many countries around the world. Hopefully, we won't implode anytime soon.

      Black Friday is coming the day after our giving of thanks. Shoppers who fight on the floor out of greed remind me a lot of...well, I won't go there. Enjoy the turkey and thanks for the casserole.

      Oh hell, Pop, I'm just going to have a great holiday and not worry about any of this crap. You seem to have it covered quite nicely without any assistance from me. I'm sure when Thanksgiving is over, our country will still be a country. It's certainly survived worse than a split Congress before.

      Happy Thanksgiving!
