With Eyes Open

Brown is in the Kitchen

Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Sunday, May 12, 2019. Our dear friend, Beetle Brown, is in the kitchen preparing a Bacon and Egg Scramble for our enjoyment. I am mixing up a spicy batch of Bloody Marys to add to the fun. Brown is distressed by our nation's tendency to allow political correctness to turn us into fools. Brown has asked me to extend an invitation to all the Poppers this morning. He has asked for the pleasure of your company at the breakfast table. Please join Brown and me for a delicious meal and a chat. We hope to see you soon.


See No Evil

Thanks so much for joining Pop and me this very fine Mother's Day morning. Our refusal to see the truth because of political correctness is turning us into targets. Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar from Minnesota has brought new meaning to the subject of inclusiveness. Her presence, and she is not alone, in Congress is very troubling. Her anti-semitic views are out there for all the world to see. It is about time we hold her accountable for her actions. Reports have surfaced that tell of her attending meetings with secret fundraisers that have ties to terrorism. Her appearances with these groups are hidden from the public. She spoke in Florida in the recent past at an event hosted by a charity organization called Islamic Relief. This group has deep ties to groups that advocate terrorism against Israel. Following that event she attended an event sponsored by CAIR. You may remember that CAIR was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in a terror funding plot. She attends these anti-Israel events without regret or shame. Her contempt for the Jewish people and Israel is evident, and yet Congress sits back and allows her to spew hatred in the name of liberty. At the CAIR event Omar urged her people to, in her words, "raise hell, get in stranger's faces and make them uncomfortable." Her response to protestors was quite clear. She told anyone who wold listen that she could care less about what they have to say. She doesn't belong in Congress. Let's hope her tenure there is short-lived.


Save America

Palestinian cleric Abu Taqu Al-Din Al-Dari stated that France will become an Islamic state by 2050. The reason is quite clear. France never paid attention to the numbers of Muslims entering their country. The numbers now speak for themselves. Demographically, France will be inhabited mostly by Muslims. Nothing can be done about that at this point. I can't conceive of anyone wanting that outcome for America, except, of course, for Muslims who are here to conquer rather than assimilate. Pay attention America, France now has many areas that are completely outside the control of police. They are being run by Arab gangs who have imposed Sharia law. Given the total lack of regard for our borders by the Democrats, we are in a very precarious position in America. We are subjecting ourselves to people we know nothing about. We are leaving ourselves vulnerable to people whose intentions for our nation are unknown. There is nothing humane about refusing to deal with these issues. We are closing our eyes in the name of political correctness and politics. Common sense is dead in the minds of those who oppose safeguarding our nation. We have to wake up, take the bull by the horns and protect our nation. If we fail to do so, we can say good-bye to America.

Omar's tendency to defend terrorists and smear Israel should ring alarm bells for all of us. She is not alone in her feelings, but the fact that she was elected to serve in Congress is even more alarming than her clear disdain for everything that is American. The really troubling part about her inclusion in Congress is the apparent unwillingness of the Democratic Party to address and deal with her hated. They are showing clear signs of following her lead in her dismissal of the right for Israel to exist. Change is coming to America, and it is not welcome.

Omar has called for defunding the Department of Homeland Security. Her take on the border crisis is simple. She blames white nationalism for the treatment of those gathering at the border. She is using this crisis to divide us. Let's hope that her tenure in Washington is brief, even briefer the her specified term.


Welcome to America

We are a nation of immigrants. Immigrants built our country. The current crisis and our reaction to it is not a reflection of our unwillingness to welcome people to our shores. What's happening now is uncontrolled and dangerous. We don't know a thing about the thousands upon thousands of people rying to gain entry to our country. People like Omar condemn us for our concerns. She has her own reasons for her condemnation. The Democrats who believe in open borders have their own selfish reasons for there views. We can't bend to their wishes. We need to restore order to our country. To do less is to commit suicide.

At the same time we need to pay attention to events occurring across America. Omar's election to Congress is one such event. Given her outspoken disdain for the Jewish people, one would hope that she would have been rejected by voters. The fact that she is in Washington now should make us question the leanings of those who put her there. To do otherwise is to be ignorant. One hideous example of political blindness occurred in Pennsylvania. State Rep. Jason Dawkins, a Muslim lawmaker, opened a state State House session by reading the Koran. His fellow Democrats responded with thunderous applause. Incidents such as this are happening more and more in different forms. We may not hear about all of them, because the MSM would rather hide the truth from Americans.

This is probably the tip of a very chilling iceberg.

Brown's Song

Don't know when I've felt so down

Problems blooming all around

Don't it turn my brown eyes blue.
