Harlotte Is at the Table

Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Monday, May 21, 2018. Our creative friend, Spider Harlotte, is at the breakfast table this morning. She has prepared Caramel French Toast for our enjoyment. I have mixed up a batch of Irish coffees to take the chill out of the news from Washington. Harlotte has asked for the pleasure of your company this morning. John Brennan is on her mind, and the need to vent is growing stronger by the minute. We hope to see you soon.

Under Seige

Thanks so much for joining POP and me this morning. The sun is finally shining, but the continuing assault on President Trump rains down on the nation. There are many bad actors in this ugly drama, but one in particular stands out for me today. Former CIA Director John Brennan has emerged as a key player in the effort to tear down the president. Mr. Brennan's tweets to President Trump speak volumes about where he stands. He started out threatening the president, telling him he would be sorry if he continued on the path he was on. Subsequent tweets threatened Senator McConnell and Speaker Ryan. Brennan told the twosome that if Mr. Trump continued along his disastrous path, they would bear responsibility for the harm done to our democracy. It is clear to anyone with a love of spy thrillers, that John Brennan is getting very nervous about his role in this mess we call "the Mueller Investigation." The closer we are to getting to the truth of his involvement during and after the Obama years, the more twitchy he gets.

Brennan went back on Twitter to tweet that Donald Trump simultaneously lied about the Iranian nuclear deal, undermined the global confidence in U.S. commitments, alienated our closest allies, strengthened Iranian hawks and gave North Korea more reason to keep its nukes. In my view this tweet bears some scrutiny. First of all, Mr. Brennan should be addressing the president with respect. Second of all, Iran got all the goodies. In time, they will have their nuclear weapons while immediately enjoying the barrels of cash delivered to their doorstep. That money was used to support terror, but no one in the Obama administration thought twice about it. Brennan referred to the existence of Iranian hawks. What exactly is an Iranian hawk? Perhaps an Iranian hawk is an individual who believes we never should have made a deal with terrorists. Brennan's reference to North Korea is laughable. President Trump has accomplished the impossible even if North Korea stalls the talks or backs away entirely. I wonder, Mr. Brenner, what are you afraid of ?

Confusion Abounds

John Brennan appears to be having a difficult time keeping his Trump-Russia stories straight. In my view, he is mainly responsible for the destruction of America's faith in the intelligence community. Brennan has unsuccessfully tried to distance himself form the phony dossier about President Trump. In July of 2016, Brennan initiated the Russia investigation and urged the FBI to get on board. In August, he briefed President Obama, telling the former president that Putin wanted Donald Trump to win. There were many in the FBI who believed otherwise. Brennan then briefed Harry Reid, who told FBI Director James Comey that he was concerned with Russia's tampering. The rest is history. Through it all and now, Brennan insists that the phony Steele dossier was not a part of the intelligence communities assessment of Russian interference. Even James Clapper, then Director of National Intelligence under Obama, believed that the dossier was a huge factor in the ever-growing Trump collusion conspiracy fiasco. It's understandable that Brennan would be panicking right about now. What is he so afraid of?

Round Em" Up

This never ending saga has so many twists and turns that it is difficult to follow. It is time to get down to business and wrap up the Mueller witch hunt. It is time to get the truth from this growing list of characters who have tried to bring down President Donald Trump. If crimes have been committed by people in high places, and I believe they have, Americans need to know about it, and the guilty have to be punished. We need to have our faith restored in the CIA, the FBI and the DOJ. It is not going to be an easy job, because the actions of all three agencies are unspeakable. Let's get to the bottom of this cesspool. Why not start with John Brennan. What is he so afraid of?

      Good Morning Jennifer,

      Each passing day brings out another spy, another leaker, another loser. It's time for some indictments, and they had better all be Democrats. I read something funny yesterday. A new study proves that one out of three Dems are just as stupid as the other two!

      It amazes me that the President still has so many haters within the White House. Aren’t they all working for the people???? He constantly has to do damage control while doing his job. God forbid people start doing their jobs to the best of their ability without being snakes.

      Good Morning maven,

      It turns out that "the other shoe" is an entire shoe store. We should sic ICE on all these losers, because they can't possibly be Americans! I'll meet you at the Inn and join you in an Irish.

      Good Morning, Pop and Harlotte...

      Who will untangle that "web" of deceit, treachery, and corruption..? The AG..? Congress..? Mueller..? The FBI..? All are a part of the web...A web woven with the cattails of the Swamp...

      So where do we turn to...? President Trump has the power to declassify all these feverishly protected documents (FISA, Clinton emails, Podesta emails, FBI and CIA interoffice and interpersonal memos, the Obama administration's involvement in a national election, all of which are being blatantly withheld from congressional investigators on "national security" concerns...The only national security concerns I see are their own security concerns...

      So why doesn't President Trump act..? His confidence that truth will out exceeds my patience, and my knowledge that media manipulation and time tend to contribute to the collective short-term memory of most Americans...

      We are facing a Constitutional crisis like no other in US history...Corruption has become the new normal in American government...Brennan is just the tip of the iceberg, and any amount of global warming ain't gonna change that...

      "By the prickling of my thumbs, Something wicked this way comes", and not just my thumbs but my whole being is waiting for the next shoe to drop...What dark forces await the inner destruction of Man's finest experiment...

      I'm heading for the Inn, where sanity reigns and patriots converse...Hold the coffee, just the Irish...

      Check your email. When you have some time, you can listen to each segment (there are 3) of Michael's broadcast. You probably could have searched for it but it seemed much easier for me to send them to you.

      He's filling in as Host again today and has just continued to Spill all the beans. He has stated repeatedly that all the dirt will be coming out publicly in the very near future. He sounds quite positive, confident and very eager to watch the Dems be dragged to their respective new environments, whether they be iron bars or padded rooms in Mental facilities....deserted islands, The House of Horrors, located on the Walk of Shame.....and they don;t get their choice. Rooms will be designated!!

      Good Morning Pino,

      Honestly, if this was a plot for a movie the critics would pan it. They would say that there are way too many bad characters and too may twists and turns. The audience would say it was impossible to follow or believe. See you at the Inn. It's a fine place to soothe raw nerves.

      pop & Harlotte,,,,The plot may sicken, but "we" can begin to feel MUCH better, my friend. Are you familiar with Michael Caputo? (former DT campaign aide, called before Mueller & his bandits more than once)?? Michael is a "local boy"....aka, my neck of the woods (WNY). This morning he sat-in for a regular radio host on our local station that I listen to religiously. For the 3-hr broadcast, he talked of his experience with the senseless, useless, unwarranted "Mueller Investigation." I will be happy to email the links to this broadcast if you'd like. I KNOW you would want to hear all he had to say. It is all very very good news for Trump & his crew and supporters. More importantly, it is extremely bad, sad, scary news for Mueller, Comey and the Dems in general. Much to come in the NEWS, real news, that is. Just give me a holler & I'll send it to you. Peace, Paula

      POP:

      Great French Toast. I find it odd that liberals refer to our president at just Trump. Conservatives always referred to our former president at President Obama. Liberals are very disrespectful.

      John Brennan has a reason to be nervous. I hope he will be indicted for his actions against our country. He was the leaker; imagine that, the head of a department, the CIA, was the leaker!

      Incredible!

      Anyway, my mind is blowing up, so I need to get to the Inn to be safe!

      See you there.....

      Dear ab,

      I love it! Incarceration should be the end result of all the lies and corruption. I hope we have enough jumpsuits. I also hope we have cells large enough to accommodate their egos! See you at the Inn.

      Dear Tom,

      I agree with you 100 percent. These "felons" did their level best to circumvent the law and the people. Bring on the orange jumpsuits, because if they are not held accountable for their crimes, our country will never be the same. See you at the Inn.

      Pop and Harlotte,

      I started out thinking that Brennan, Comey and Clapper were just three blind mice but the more facts that are uncovered, I fear that they are an unholy trinity who aided Obama in trying to fundamentally transform America..........in another banana republic.

      This ugly chapter in American politics will soon come to a close & hopefully the guilty will be punished (somehow I doubt all the guilty parties will get what they deserve). We've already seen the refusal-narrative in full effect since Mrs. Clinton lost the election, so I'm assuming that if and when people start getting handcuffed, if it will be painted with the broad brush of partisan politics (meaning the media will scream loud and louder that its just another witch hunt.
