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.

      Well. let's face it things have changed on HP. I just passed my ten year mark! They went by like lightening. I still like writing on HP, and I value the friendships I have made along the way. I guess I'm getting what I want. Could things be better here? Of course, but when I start my day and see a comment from you, I'm good to go. Enjoy the week-end brad and see you at the Inn.

      How many active hubbers do you think are active in any day?

      I see so few hubs being written, and of the few, there seems to be a handful of people that keep commenting on an article hundreds, and sometimes a thousand times.

      My point is that Hp (Maven) has created a ghost townnnnnnnnn. That was an echo:)

      Good Morning brad,

      More badn news is that Americans are having fewer and fewer children. That spells trouble no matter what. As far as Obama is concerned, his fellow Americans are not really Americans. We saw right away where his allegiance lies. See you at the Inn.

      I agree and the radical Muslims want to run the world by populating other countries, even the US. Then when they out number the voters of those countries they get to drive the political wheel.

      It won't work in Russia and China, but the rest of the world countries are up for grabs.

      President Obama liked the phrase

      "at the very end of his address, Obama takes the oath of office: "My fellow Americans, "

      My query is who are his fellow Americans?

      Dear brad,

      The left have lost their angry little minds. If they keep this up they will be on the floor with their butts up in the air. Muslims should stay in Muslim countries, but the truth is the goal is to spread their religion and way of life throughout the world. They really are not hiding their intenions. We are just not listening.

      You got that right. The koolaid the left is drinking has been poisoned and now being distributed to the country.

      The tireless efforts of the left to destroy America is starting to go into action. The result will be an America that is like the Vatican but the religion will be Islamic. The country will then change its name to Islamdia! In it Americans will be persecuted whenever they stray from Sharia Law.

      I was just reading about how MAGA doesn't apply because America was always great? Of course this was from an anti Trumper lefty. I cannot comprehend how they can even say it, much less believe it.

      BTW, why is the left against the Jews, and the Christians but they love the Muslims. Which of these three groups had people in it that would attack America foreign and domestic?

      Dear brad,

      You just supplied a recipe for poison. Diversity is a horse of a different color. Those who call themselves American should embrace our culture while still holding on to theirs. That does not mean introducing Sharia Law. That does not mean domination. We have very strong signs of trouble here already. A school in Seattle is forcing kids to speak Arabic during Ramadan. I guess separation of church and state does not apply to Muslims. CAIR has issued guidelines on how to treat Muslim kids including Ramadan, including excusing them from tests. This strikes me as unconstitutional. In any case, this is but one example of the slippery slope we are on.

      Unfortunately, we have the people on the left that want this to happen.

      This is a 21st century new kind of Civil War, but like the original the democrats are the one pushing it.

      It is a new version of domestic warfare, one where the word is mightier than any known weapon. Why because these words are the mindset of changing America and Americans into a single homogeneous blob.

      A cooking analogy because of all your cooking would probably be appropriate. If we take the signature dish of every country and we put it in a big pot, mix it and cook it what would be the result. Once mixed and fused by heating this would no doubt be a grey in color and pungent in smell, and something that even the strongest stomachs would find revolting. It would be served by the shovel full into a communal industrial size pot.

      This is culinary diversity and it has everything, literally everything in it. So, by that measure, it must be good, healthy, and delicious? Yummmmm!

      Good Morning brad,

      Your comment hits this issue head on. Turning our collective heads away from the ugly truth will get us into hot water. GB and France are lost. I have been to both countries and the changes are noticeable and frightening. The same problem is here trying to grow and take over. At the rate we are going, we will end up like France and GB. See you at the Inn.

      Good Morning Lori,

      Omar's purpose is not to legislate or help America. It is to change America. Her speeches and behavior make that quite clear. She is a dangerous person, and she most certainly does not belong in Congress. See you at the inn.

      This Omar issue results from the same thing that Brexit is trying to avoid.

      "FBI statistics reveal that Minnesota’s fifth congressional district, which is represented by Rep. Ilhan Omar and includes the urban area of Minneapolis, is the jurisdiction with the highest rate of terrorist recruitment in the United States.

      Minnesota is reported to have the highest Somali population in the United States, with current population estimates breaching 100,000. This demographic has proven to be connected to terror-related activities, "

      GB like the US has been injected and invested with people coming into the country legally or illegally with the purpose of overwhelming the Americans at the voting booth.

      Omar got into office because her district is loaded. That is like having a dice game with loaded dice. By not spreading thinly across the US or GB these people can quickly become the majority of an area, a voting area.

      It comes down to the root cause of America and GB failing because of this injection, which the left calls diversity. But, when the injection is about people that don't want to abandon their country for America. The want is to be a host country much like a tape worm in a host body.

      What is worse than a democrat in office is the people that voted them into office.

      Aside from her subversive agenda, Omar isn't even serving her constituents. They did not vote for her to be involved with anything of that nature. This is America. How about dealing with lawmaking and policy, and all the things she promised her state she would do, not that I agree with those things necessarily. It seems the Dems waffle a lot with her and with AOC. I hope she is a one-termer.

      Their hate speech is constantly explained away by the Democratic Party and by MSM.

      We, are at fault, we misunderstand their words, we misconstrue their message, we take things out of context, we are the ones that must be watched and monitored and banned.....because God(?) forbid, we get in the way of their progress.

      If you want to write, go for it. Nobody cou here to to dominate not assimilate. Those words come from the Muslim community, not me. Americans are naive, and if we continue in that vein we will go the way of France. The FBI just found another ISIS training camp in our country. When will we wake up? Tlaib, another nightmare, said thoughts of the Holocaust are "calming." The fact that these two women are in Congress should scare us all to death. See you at the Inn.

      pop & brown....Needless to say, your article is, as all of them are, OUTSTANDING.!

      Just as importantly, since as of late, I've been a letter-writing fool....I feel very compelled to give Facebook a damned good piece of my mind for having banned you and this article!! The only way I would not write them is if you ask me not to.

      Several years ago, I read an extremely compelling (and frightening) book, written by the amazing Brigette Gabriel, "Why They Hate."....& in this book, Brigette clearly predicts the radical islamists firm commitment to invading every corner of the world to ultimately assume world domination ....complete control under Islam, forcing all people, under threat of death, to live as Muslims, literally following the Koran and under Sharia Law.....It surely appears this is happening.. (France)......etc. I highly recommend every single American read this book! Ms Gabriel (a Lebonese-American Christian) knows from painful experience, what she shares in this book as unavoidable truth!

      ooh Evening Kris,

      I am so glad someone reacted to FB! Yes, they banned my article and me at least for today. I'll see if it continues. Actually, I am so proud to get under their phony skin. James Woods, who I love, was banned from Twitter. I'll try for that next! Omar won, not because her constituents were young, she won because they are Muslim. I am off to the Inn. I don't care how late it is. Today marks my 10th year on HP. Imagine, ten years toady and getting banned from FB. What a day! I want to celebrate.

      I seriously wonder sometimes if half the people who do vote are capable of casting an informed, reasoned vote. That’s how bad the situation has become!

      That’s the truth Bill and a serious point to make! In the greatest nation in history it’s hard to believe people, almost half the electorate, don’t vote!

      But given the dumbing down of the electorate by the media, the education system and the culture of entertainment I’m not so sure anymore that it’s a bad thing half the electorate doesn’t vote - if they care so little about it how can one imagine they are even qualified to exercise an informed and reasoned vote.

      I will add this, Pop....Omar was put in office by those who support her and came out to vote....she would not be in office if enough people, who believe as you do, had come out and voted against her. Apathy at the polls is a killer and always has been.
