Latina arrested for assaulting man wearing MAGA hat

Fox News reports that on Feb. 15, 2019, Rosaine Santos, 41, was arrested for asasulting Bryton Turner, 23, at Casa Vallarta, a Mexican restaurant in Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

Rosaine Santos, an immigrant from Brazil living in Falmouth, was charged with disorderly conduct, assault and battery.

According to police, Santos was upset that Turner had the audacity to wear a MAGA hat, Boston 25 reported.

Turner told police that he was minding his own business when Santos started yelling at him because of his hat. Annoyed by the woman’s antics, he pulled out his phone and started recording her.

In the video, Santos is seen walking behind him and hitting his hat off his head.

Speaking into his phone, Turner said: “That’s the problem – the problem with American these days, people are just ignorant.”

Turner uploaded the video to his Facebook page. Click here.

When police arrived at the restaurant, Santos told them Turner should not be allowed to eat at a Mexican restaurant because of his support for President Trump, who is pushing to building a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.

As police escorted Santos out of the restaurant, she took another swipe at Turner.

Santos actually has the audacity to claim she is the victim. She told Boston 25:

“I had a little bit to drink maybe that’s the reason that I couldn’t walk away but being discriminated for so many times in my life, I just had to stand up for myself. He’s not a victim. I am the victim. I have been bullied, OK?”

But an eyewitness — Geo Macarao, a bartender at the restaurant — confirms Turner’s account. Macaro told Boston 25 Turner had just ordered food when Santos started attacking him unprovoked.

California restaurant wants to ban customers who wear MAGA hat

J. Kenji Lopez-Alt is the chef-partner of a San Francisco Bay Area restaurant: Wursthall Restaurant & Bierhaus, 310 Baldwin Ave, San Mateo, CA 94401.

On Twitter, Lopez-Alt describes himself as:

Full-time Dad. Author: The Food Lab. Chef. Feminist. Atheist.

On Sunday, January 27, 2019, Lopez-Alt posted a since-deleted tweet saying his restaurant will refuse service to anyone wearing a MAGA cap because it’s a “symbol of intolerance and hate” like the Nazi swastika or the KKK’s white hood.

By Wednesday afternoon, January 30, 2019, the tweet had more than 2,100 likes and more than 200 retweets. (San Francisco Chronicle)

In a follow-up tweet, also since deleted, Lopez-Alt said the red MAGA caps “are like white hoods except stupider because you can see exactly who is wearing them.”

RT reports, February 1, 2019, that Lopez-Alt’s tweets drew both praise and condemnation, with some urging a boycott of Wursthall and others suggesting a visit to the restaurant by a MAGA hat-wearing flash mob. The restaurant’s page on both Facebook and the review site Yelp have been inundated with negative reviews accusing the owner of bigotry and politically-motivated hatred. (Yelp has since deleted all the negative reviews.)

On February 1, 2019, five days after his “no MAGA hat” tweet, Lopez-Alt posted a self-serving, fake apology on Medium and on Twitter, in which he double-downed on calling the MAGA hat a symbol of “anger, hate, and violence”:

I want to start by apologizing to my staff and partners at Wursthall. Making a public statement without taking my team’s thoughts into consideration was disrespectful and reckless. My goal at Wursthall was for it to be a restaurant where all employees and staff are treated with respect and trust, and by making that public statement without your consent, I failed at that goal. I will work hard to earn back that trust.

I am very proud to come from a diverse family. My mother is an immigrant from Japan and my father is from a steel town in Western Pennsylvania. My family spans across the political spectrum. Yet we still manage to have a wonderful time at our biannual family reunion because we have three things in common: family, a love for our country, and most importantly, respect for each other and our communities….

After having seen the red hat displayed so prominently in so many moments of anger, hate, and violence, to me — and many others — the hat began to symbolize exactly that: anger, hate, and violence. This was the context my tweet was meant to communicate….

My message was intended to reject anger, hate and violence, and indicate that these shouldn’t be welcomed in our society and aren’t welcome in our community. It was meant to be directed at those who would try to bring messages of hate, violence, and anger into my place of business, no matter what form it comes in. It was aimed at these three elements rather than at a physical object, but I understand that many interpreted my words in a different context, and construed a message of hate directed at them. This was not my intent in any way, and I am sorry for my recklessness.

What’s more, my personal perspective in no way meant that Wursthall was changing its policy, as is being erroneously reported in media.

Wursthall will continue, as it always has, to serve all customer regardless of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, sexual preference, gender orientation, disability, or political opinion — so long as they leave hate, anger, and violence outside of the doors of our restaurant.

As many readers of his pseudo-apology point out, it is J. Kenji Lopez-Alt who is the spewer of the very “anger, hate, and violence” he decries.

According to Wikipedia, Lopez-Alt has a degree in architecture from M.I.T., which makes him yet another example of the garbage and bigotry that U.S. colleges and universities produce.

A second Wursthall Restaurant is expected to open in 2019 in San Jose, California. Lopez-Alt is also an investor in Backhaus Bakery, which is due to open in San Mateo also this year.

If you live in the Bay Area, be sure to shun Wursthall Restaurant and Backhaus Bakery. All should shun Lopez-Alt’s book, The Food Lab, a follow-up to which will be published in 2020, as well as a children’s book on which he’s “working with Gianna Ruggiero”.

Hollywood producer Jack Morrissey calls for killing innocent Covington boys by putting them into the woodchipper

Last Friday, January 18, 2019, a deceptively-edited video posted to social media ignited a media-driven public lynching of a group of teenage boys from the all-male Covington Catholic High School in Park Hills, Kentucky.

That day, the boys, wearing red Make America Great Again (MAGA) hats and sweatshirts, participated in the March for Life in Washington, DC. The video shows the boys surrounding, laughing and jeering at an elderly Native American man singing and playing a drum, who is identified as Nathan Phillips, an Omaha elder and Vietnam veteran.

Wiping away tears, Phillips said: “When I was there singing, I heard them [Covington boys] saying ‘Build that wall, build that wall’. This is indigenous lands. We’re not supposed to have walls here. We never did.” (WDBJ7.com)

The Covington boys were roundly denounced by media outlets and their hometown mayor. The Covington Catholic School, Diocese and Archdiocese issued abject apologies and condemnation of the students.

It turns out the full video of the incident shows an entirely different version of what happened.

Instead of the Covington boys harassing Phillips, it was Phillips and a group of fellow Native American activists who approached the boys who were doing school cheers. (The March for Life coincided with an Indigenous People’s Rally.)

As you can see in the video below, posted to YouTube on January 18, the day of the incident, Phillips tests several of the boys, then targets one of them (0:58 mark). Chanting, Phillips gets in the boy’s face with a metal drumstick and drum. Another Native American man tells one of the students, “White people go back to Europe. This is not your land.”

It gets worse.

One of the Covington students told the Gateway Pundit that they were waiting for their school bus and doing school cheers when four Black Israelites got belligerent with them: “We were standing there when a group of four African Americans started calling us ‘crackers’ and ‘school shooters'” and told one of the Covington students, who is black, that “we will harvest his organs” when he gets older.

The student’s narrative is confirmed by Marcus Frejo, one of the Native American protesters, who has admitted that he knew the blacks were harassing the Covington students when he and other Native American protesters joined their “African American brothers” “in solidarity.”

In a Facebook post about the incident, Frejo wrote that he was wandering around the area when:

“all of the sudden this mob of youth from the Covington catholic highschool make there onto the steps overlooking the African American brothers and start heckling them with loud maga chants and I quickly realize whats going on when the white bro next to me says their wearing maga hats and shirts. At that moment…I wanna go over there and stand in solidarity with the brothers and just sing.”

Although the full video of the incident was posted to Facebook on January 18, the truth didn’t stop Jack Morrissey, a Hollywood producer of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast and two Twilight Saga movies that romanticize blood-sucking soul-less vampires, from calling for the murder of the Covington boys.

On January 19, 2019, referring to the Covington boys, Morrissey tweeted that “MAGAkids” should be killed by putting them, “screaming, hats first, into the woodchipper.”

He has since locked his Twitter account so that his tweets can only be read by “confirmed followers,” but not before some netcitizen archived his tweet. Here’s a screenshot of Morrissey’s tweet:

It is not just Jack Morrissey who’s calling for violence against these innocent Covington boys.

Failed actor and ‘comedian’ Ben Hoffman, who goes by the stage name ‘Wheeler Walker Jr.,’ called for violent sexual crimes to be committed against the minor teens and even offered a reward to whoever can stalk and find the minor child and “punch him in the nuts.” (Gateway Pundit)

Yesterday, Rob Sanders, a Kentucky public prosecutor who represents the 16th Judicial Circuit of Kentucky (Kenton County), fired a warning at deranged leftists like Jack Morrissey and Ben Hoffman. He tweeted this:

Threatening acts of violence against educational institutions in Kentucky is a felony and we don’t take it lightly no matter the circumstances. #KYcrime

This is how much money it takes to be better off than half of world population

In a bill-signing event in New York last August 15, New York’s Demonrat governor Andrew Cuomo, a rumored 2020 presidential candidate, said: “We’re not going to make America great again. It was never that great.”

Some millennials agree.

On this Thanksgiving Day, let’s look at how Americans compare with the rest of the world in wealth.

If you have just $4,210 to your name, you’re better off than half of people around the globe. The total world population in 2018 is 7.7 billion. That means if you have $4,210, you have more money than 3.85 billion people.

Kathleen Elkins reports for CNBC, Nov. 19, 2018, that according to the 2018 Global Wealth Report from Credit Suisse Research Institute:

  • A net worth of $4,210 makes you richer than 50% of the people in the world.
  • A net worth of $93,170 puts you in the top 10%, richer than 90% of people.
  • A net worth of $871,320 puts you in the global top 1%, richer than 99% of the 7.7 billion in the world.

As the Global Wealth report puts it:

While the bottom half of adults collectively owns less than 1 percent of total wealth, the richest decile (top 10 percent of adults) owns 85 percent of global wealth, and the top percentile alone accounts for almost half of all household wealth (47 percent).

The report defines net worth or “wealth,” as “the value of financial assets plus real assets (principally housing) owned by households, minus their debts.”

The United States continues to lead the world in wealth:

(1) The average wealth per adult over a lifetime in the U.S. is $403,974, while the median wealth per adult is $61,667, significantly more than the net worth required to be among the global 50%.

(2) The U.S. has the most members of the world’s top 1%.

(3) The U.S. has 41% of the world’s millionaires and four times the number of individuals with more than $50 million, than the next country, China.

But Andrew Cuomo, who has a net worth of $5 million, tells you not only is America not great, America has never been great.

Did you know that research consistently found that gratitude — being thankful for what we have — is strongly and consistently associated with greater happiness? Conversely, ingratitude is a sure way to be bitter and miserable. (See Harvard Health)

Liberal Intolerance: Homosexual parents throw son out for his MAGA hat

A cell-phone video has surfaced, uploaded to YouTube on November 10, 2018, taken with a cell phone, of a pair of male homosexuals screaming and castigating their son, Max, for having a Make America Great Again (MAGA) hat.

The video begins with Max asking his dads, “Can you give me my hat.”

One of the men, in a blue robe, says: “60 million people were killed in the last century because of shit like this, okay?”

Another man’s raised voice says: “Listen to me, you do not wear this in my house…you do not, in my house! … Get out!”

Man #1: “You know why I’m upset?”

Son, in an orange t-shirt: “Can I have that?”

Man #1: “You’ve lost your mind. This is not a political view, this is hate. You do not wear this … you do not wear it, Max.”

Man #2: “Get out!”

The dads scuffle with their son.

Man #2: “Get out of this house! Get out!”

Son: “You guys are crazy.”

Man #1: “You’re 22 years old, what do you know.”

Son: “You guys are crazy … You don’t know she goes to Sadie’s place … abusive….”

Man #2: “Get out! Go! and don’t be surprised when they win this ….”

The video ends with the son leaving and the front door closing.

“Keep NYC Trash Free” images of Trump supporters show up on NYC garbage cans

Edgy! Now do supporters of Islam.

I don’t wear a MAGA cap (mine is NRA) but I do occasionally carry a Chick-fil-A cup…

From Fox News: Images of Trump supporters and Boston sports fans have turned up on garbage can and train station posters in New York City under the slogan “Keep NYC Trash Free.”

The artwork was reportedly done by street artist Winston Tseng and began showing up on trash cans where a public service announcement would normally be.

One shows a man wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat with a Confederate flag tattoo on his arm and a Chick-fil-A cup in his hand.

Another drawing shows a woman with the same red “MAGA” hat holding a Bible. 

Others took aim at Boston sports fans, showing a screaming man in a Tom Brady jersey and a Boston Red Sox hat holding a Sam Adams beer.

The posters were not authorized by New York City officials, initially appearing on trash cans on Manhattan’s Lower East Side.

Some have been removed, but others remain, according to PIX 11. Tseng denied that he was behind the posters in a statement to the station.

Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign already has $106M and an army of grassroots volunteers

Two days before his inauguration, during an interview with the Washington “fake news” Post on Jan. 18, 2017, Donald John Trump already had the slogan for his re-election campaign in 2020. He asked the Post, “Are you ready?,” then announced his 2020 campaign slogan:

“Keep America Great!”

Trump called his lawyer into his office to trademark the slogan, more than three years before he is up for re-election, so confident is he that America would be great by the time the slogan is deployed.

What we didn’t know was that President Trump began raising money for his reelection campaign shortly after winning the 2016 election, and he already has amassed $106 million in his 2020 campaign war chest!

Michele Y. H. Lee reports for the Washington Post (via Chicago Tribune) that on Monday, Oct. 15, President Trump disclosed that his campaign and affiliated committees have raised at least $106 million – an enormous sum that exceeds what any of his predecessors amassed so early in their presidencies. Together with the RNC, Trump’s campaign committee and joint fundraising committees have raised more than $337 million, and stockpiled at least $88 million of it in cash.

Lee dolefully points out that this means Trump has a $100 million “head start” over Democrats “as Democrats’ hopes for the presidency are just coming into focus” because “the Trump machine has been churning for nearly two years – unheard of before this president, as his predecessors typically waited until after midterm elections to focus on their reelection campaigns.”

In addition to Trump getting a “head start” over the Demonrats, his 2020 reelection campaign is also significant because of his appeal to different parts of the GOP base:

(1) Small donors, The Deplorables, who donate $200 or less, account for 40% to more than half of the money raised in Republican Party fundraising bearing Trump’s name and likeness. The Deplorables are also buying Make America Great Again gear and responding to Facebook ads.

(2) Trump is equally successful with wealthy donors who support conservative causes:

  • At least six political action committees have spent more than $9 million to promote Trump’s 2020 run, while spending only about $1.2 million supporting GOP House and Senate candidates, according to a McClatchy News analysis.
  • Joel Benenson, a campaign strategist for Barack Obama, admitted that wealthy conservative donors are better organized and act more strategically than any Democrat outfits that raise money from big donors: “Focusing on just what the RNC and just Donald Trump [have] raised masks what I think another advantage that Republicans have … the billionaire network on the Republican side, which I think often seems like they deploy and develop in more coordinated ways. There’s a way to get more strategic on that front [for Democrats], and I think we’re playing a bit of catch-up there.”

(3) More than mobilizing small donors, the Trump 2020 reelection campaign is getting organized at the grass roots level — something that the Republican Party inexplicably and unconscionably had overlooked in the past:

  • The Republican National Committee (RNC) is gathering into its voter database the tens of thousands of Deplorables who are turning up at Trump rallies across the country, connecting with 1 million voters per day and forging an army of volunteers. The test run of this new GOP machine is the November midterm election.
  • Since 2012, the RNC had spent nearly $250 million to improve the party’s data and digital operations. The RNC’s data program flags prospective volunteers when they express interest in the party for the first time – such as making a donation or signing a petition online – and when they register to attend their first Trump rally.
  • An example is Hope Eck, 49, a registered nurse in Indiana and an independent who supported Clinton in 2008 and voted for Trump in 2016. Eck attended her first Trump rally in May in Elkhart, Indiana. When Trump implored the crowd to help elect Republican Mike Braun to the Senate, in one of the most competitive contests this fall, “I definitely felt a tug at my heart to get involved,” Eck said. So at the rally, she signed up to volunteer. Within a week, a Republican Party official called her. Soon after, Eck was knocking on doors to educate voters about Braun. She now canvasses voters in person and by phone every day, often on her own.
  • Another example is Linda Olson, 66, a retired legal secretary who lives in Great Falls, Montana, attended a Trump rally for the first time in July after waiting 5½ hours in line. Olson voted for Trump in 2016, but it wasn’t until she saw him in person at the rally that she was moved to volunteer for the party, urging voters to support Republicans in House and Senate races. Olson said she plans to continue volunteering to help Trump get reelected in 2020: “Anything he needs us to do – for the president – we’ll be doing.”
  • The RNC now has 540 national staff members across 28 states, with more than 22,000 “top tier” trained activists. In comparison, 5,000 such volunteers were trained for the 2016 campaign.

A massive, overflow Trump rally in Erie, Pennsylvania, October 10, 2018:

GOP strategist Scott Jennings, who advised Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign, said: “If the Trump campaign and RNC keep doing what they’re doing, they’re going to amass a huge fundraising and grassroots network. By the time the conventions come around, they’re going to be rolling down the campaign trail with a well-oiled, fully-weaponized battle station.”

Even Demonrat strategist Paul Begala acknowledged that “It is really impressive, the money and the operation that the Trump folks are putting together.” As soon as the midterm election is over, Democrats “had better get about the business of re-arming for the next battle.”

The Democratic National Committee (DNC), struggling to rebuild after 2016, effectively has no cash on hand and remains in debt. DNC officials said they are cognizant of the gap they need to close for 2020 and are investing in state parties and cybersecurity so that the eventual nominee will inherit a strong party – something they acknowledge that Hillary Clinton did not have in 2016. Guy Cecil, chairman of Priorities USA, the main Demonrat super PAC, said: “There’s no question that the DNC found itself in a deeper hole than they thought when the 2018 cycle started, and they have significant more work to do to get resources and to build infrastructure, so that when we have a nominee, we’re prepared to fight.”

The 2020 race is expected to begin almost immediately after the midterm election. Fauxcahontas Sen. Elizabeth Warren (MA), rumored “gay” Sen. Cory Booker (NJ), and Obama’s VP pedophile Joe Biden are among the high-profile Democrats who have recently raised millions of dollars and traveled around the country to support midterm candidates – moves typically considered signs of presidential aspirations.

Michael Avenatti, the attorney who represents Stormy Daniels and Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s false accuser (and perjurer) Julie Swetnick, said he would run for the presidency in 2020 only against Trump or Pence.

Bring it on, punks!

Unhinged Demorats: Washington man says truck was torched for having Trump stickers

From MyNorthwest.com: A Southwest Washington man’s truck is now a charred hulk after being set on fire. Its owner says it’s because it had two Trump 2020 stickers on its bumper.

“I literally just put those on this weekend, just put them on,”Johnny Mackay told Portland’s KOIN 6. “If I would have known someone would have taken their politics this far … I thought they were funny. Apparently, somebody did not get the joke.”

One sticker said “Trump 2020: Make America Great Again.” The other stated: “Trump 2020: Make Liberals Cry Again!” MacKay recently put the pair of “Trump 2020” stickers on his 2015 Nissan Titan.

He left the truck at the Garage Bar and Grille’s parking lot in Vancouver, Wash. after having drinks there Saturday night. The next day, he returned to find the car torched, the tires melted, and the windows shattered. There was also an anti-Trump message spray painted on its side.

“If you say anything that somebody doesn’t like, you are automatically a target,” he said. “You are automatically the enemy and they have to hurt you.”

MacKay says he didn’t vote for Trump in 2016. He supports him now that he’s the president. He’s also an Uber driver. MacKay says the fire destroyed his source of income. He also has a message for whoever burned his car.

“The person needs to get help,” MacKay said. “Whether it was from drugs or a mental condition (it’s called liberalism), this person needs to get help. If they blow up at this, who knows.”
