McDonald’s restaurants might bring in law enforcement to enforce mask mandate

If you take a look at McDonald’s Twitter timeline, you’d never know they are trying to sell hamburgers and French fries. It’s all about BLM now. Some of their recent tweets:

“We must protect, honor, love, and defend [Black women] at all costs”
“There’s not enough anti-racist research figuring out what’s wrong with racist policy”
“Black trans women have a very simple message: stop killing us”
“I employ everyone to support Black artists. We are the literal heartbeat of popular culture, but that needs to be reflected in position and pay”
“When I think of Black art, there’s a certain texture of expression”
“Support Black led organizations. Support Black people”

Well, when I think of having a cheeseburger and fries, I WON’T be supporting McDonald’s.

On Friday, McDonald’s CEO Chris Kempczinski suggested that law enforcement may be called during situations when a customer won’t wear a mask.

One more place that I will not be visiting in the future. I don’t need a side of leftist politics with my cheeseburger.

So much for libs’ boycott: Chick-fil-A named America’s favorite restaurant chain for fourth year running

From NY Post: Once again, Chick-fil-A has been named America’s favorite restaurant based on customer satisfaction.

For the fourth year in a row, the fast-food chain topped the American Customer Satisfaction Index for limited-service restaurant chains. The index is based on results from nearly 23,000 consumers.

Chick-fil-A scored an 86 on the ASCI’s 100-point scale, which is down one point from last year, Forbes reports. For comparison, McDonald’s scored a 69, Burger King a 76 and KFC a 78. Taco Bell scored a 75.
Meanwhile, in regard to pizza places, Pizza Hut and Papa John’s both scored 80 points, with Domino’s at 79 and Little Caesars at just 77.

Chick-fil-A’s high ranking can be attributed to several factors, including the company’s famous customer service training. Business Insider reports that the restaurant was named America’s most polite chain in QSR Magazine’s annual report.

This isn’t the only piece of good news for Chick-fil-A. The chain is expected to become the third bestseller fast-food chain in America, Fox 5 reports. It’s expected to jump past Taco Bell, Burger King and Wendy’s, based on a study conducted by Kalinowski Equity Research.

Making this an even more impressive feat is the fact that Chick-fil-A is closed on Sundays, while almost all of its competition is open seven days a week.

What happens when liberals call for a boycott of a fast-food chain…

Not every restaurant is seeing sales moving accordingly with its customer satisfaction score. Forbes reports that McDonald’s, which has a relatively low score in comparison, has reportedly had a strong performance this year. Meanwhile, Papa John’s high score has surprisingly coincided with a drop in sales.

Justice served? California woman who tried to drown newborn in McDonald’s restroom gets probation

Baby mama Lockner “didn’t know” she was pregnant/San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office photo

From Fox News: A California woman accused of trying to drown her newborn in a McDonald’s restroom avoided jail time last week after striking a plea deal with prosecutors and pleading no contest to felony child endangerment.

Sarah Jane Lockner, 27, received four years of supervised probation and was ordered to take parenting classes. SFGate reported, citing court documents. Lockner reportedly agreed to the plea deal in January. She was originally charged with attempted murder.

Lockner was in the middle of a shift at a McDonald’s in Redwood City in the Bay Area in September 2017 when she was complaining of stomach pains, according to the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office. When her fellow employees noticed she was trailing blood, Lockner told them she had a “heavy period.”

A co-worker went to check on Lockner in the restroom and allegedly discovered Lockner with the newborn’s head face-down in a toilet bowl, according to prosecutors. Lockner reportedly told the co-worker not to call police, but the co-worker did anyway, according to the Mercury News of San Jose.

Responding officers found the baby not breathing and without a pulse, the newspaper reported. The baby was rushed to a hospital and survived. The child is reportedly staying with the father’s aunt.

It wasn’t the first time this had happened to Lockner, according to prosecutors. She had given birth to another child in a restroom at home three years prior to the McDonald’s birth, prosecutors said. Lockner said both times that she didn’t know she was pregnant.

TDS: Libtards mock President Trump for serving fast food at WH yet Obama was praised for eating fast food

Another fine example of liberals’ hypocrisy on display. Nothing, absolutely NOTHING President Trump does will ever be good enough for them.

I only wish President Trump had served some Chick-fil-A. THAT would have really made libtards’ heads explode!

From Hollywood Reporter: The president hosted NCAA National Champion Clemson University’s football team at the White House earlier that day. The event’s menu consisted of what Trump called “great American food.” Boxes of McDonald’s Quarter Pounders, Big Macs and Filet-O-Fish sandwiches, Chicken McNuggets, Domino’s pizza, french fries and Wendy’s wraps were served to the football players.

Due to the partial government shutdown, much of the White House residential staff has been furloughed, so the president personally paid for the fast food served, the White House explained about the unusual menu for the evening.

“I had a choice. Do we have no food for you, because we have a shutdown?” Trump told the team, according to the Associated Press. “Or do we give you some little quick salads that the first lady will make, along with, along with the second lady. They’ll make some salads. And I said, ‘You guys aren’t into salads.'”

On Late Night, host Seth Meyers joked that the athletes were mostly excited to visit the famous house because of one of its former residents. “The players couldn’t wait to get back home to tell their families they got to go into the house Barack Obama used to live in,” said Meyers. ‘”Was that his bedroom?'”

The host later dug into the topic in his “A Closer Look” segment.

A clip of Trump talking to the press about his plans for the night followed. “I think we’re going to serve McDonald’s, Wendy’s and Burger Kings with some pizza,” he told reporters. “I would think that’s their favorite food.”
“No, dude. I think that’s your favorite food,” responded Meyers. “He thinks he’s being so sly. ‘Normally, I would have a salad for dinner on Monday, but they told me they only eat every fast food.'”

Meyers then asked why Trump referred to the chain restaurant Burger King in the plural tense. “Does he think there’s more than one? ‘We will be having all of the Burger Kings over to the White House for a summit on trade.'” The joke was followed by an image of Trump sitting at a table with three Burger King mascots.

“I think it’s safe to say that had he lost the election, The Burger Kings would have been the name of the food show Trump hosted with Guy Fieri,” Meyers concluded.

Stephen Colbert used Trump’s expertise in fast food to transition topics on The Late Show. “Maybe the president sensed he was in over his head here because he quickly changed the subject to things he is an expert in: Watching football and eating fast food,” said Colbert after he shared a clip of Trump discussing James Comey with reporters. The video of Trump sharing the menu for the football players followed.

“Mr. President, is it possible you’re just projecting your favorite foods onto them?” asked Colbert. “We’re going to eat all of their favorite foods. Burgers, KFC, taco bowls, two scoops of ice cream. We’re gonna watch their favorite movie, the 2016 election results, then I will spank them all with a rolled up Forbes. I hear they’re really into that.

Over on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the host said that Trump serving fast food to the team “might be the craziest” thing he did all weekend.

Kimmel shared the clip of Trump stating that the food he planned to serve was the team’s favorite. “What would possibly make you think that?” he asked. “I’ll tell you what made him think that. He’s paying the check, so he had to get the cheapest food they could find.””

“And you know he’s taking whatever they don’t eat back to his bedroom. He’ll be like the rat in Charlotte’s Web tonight rolling around in Quarter Pounders with cheese,” he added.

Feel good story of the day: Alabama McDonald’s gunman killed by armed citizen

From Fox News: A brave dad armed with a pistol stopped what could have been a mass shooting Saturday inside an Alabama McDonald’s when he took down a masked gunman who had stormed in and opened fire.

The unidentified father was leaving the establishment with his sons when a masked man walked into the Birmingham fast-food restaurant and started shooting, WBRC-TV reported. The father returned fire and, during the ensuing shootout, the gunman, the father and one of the man’s teenage sons were struck, according to the station.

The gunman, who was not identified, later died of his injuries. The other two injuries were not considered life-threatening.

Markus Washington, one of the McDonald’s employees, told WBRC-TV he was making two quarter-pounders when bullets started to fly. Washington said he ran into the freezer, where he heard about 15 shots fired.

“I’m feeling grateful,” he told the station. “Wrapping my head around it all, I was just wishing someone would come wake me up from this nightmare.”

Washington, oblivious to the shootout taking place outside the freezer door, feared the worst. “All we hear is like different gunfire, so in my mind, I’m imagining everybody is dead. He’s looking for us,” he said. Washington added he was thankful the armed customer was there.

“He’s my hero. Because I can only imagine how it would’ve went if he wasn’t armed. We might not be here having this interview,” Washington said.

The father is not expected to face charges, police said.

Authorities are now working to determine if the gunman intended to rob the restaurant, was targeting an employee or planned something more nefarious.

“Things like this are difficult for both families. The gentleman who unfortunately lost his life, the teenage boy who is in the hospital recovering from his injuries and the father who is also recovering from his injuries,” Birmingham police spokesman Sgt. Bryan Shelton said, according to WVTM-13. “It’s not easy being a father and watching your child get injured, get hurt like that. It’s a really heartwrenching experience.”

Texas McDonald's worker is fired for refusing to serve an off-duty cop

blue lives matter
From Daily Mail: An off-duty police officer out of uniform in Texas was refused service at a local McDonald’s by an employee simply for being a cop.
The officer who works for the Brenham Police Department went to grab a quick bite to eat with his two children at the fast-food chain, but a female employee would not serve him.
Brenham Police Chief Craig Goodman said the shocking incident happened at the 500 Hwy 290 West location in the town that’s located about 80 miles outside of Dallas. ‘We know this was an isolated incident that involved a single employee who is not fond of law enforcement,’ a statement posted to the department’s Facebook page reads.
Goodman told KPRC the employee’s son is currently in custody ‘for a serious offense and she just doesn’t have a pleasant view or a positive view of law enforcement.’ 
Another employee at the McDonald’s stepped in and served the officer and his family. ‘Nobody deserves to be treated like that,’ Goodman told KHOU.  ‘We know that these problems exist everywhere, but we did not expect that here.’
The officer, who has not been publicly named, told his captain what happened and he contacted McDonald’s, who immediately let the employee go.  ‘They, much like a police organization, looked at what took place, and after gathering the information, they came to the right decision and that employee no longer works for their business,’ Goodman said.
He added that the owners of the eatery were ‘disheartened’ when they heard about the incident.  
brenham police department
Goodman said that the officer who this happened to is one of the best in their department and is also a former Marine. He shared that they aren’t judging McDonald’s for what happened based ‘on the action of this one worker. The actions of that one employee do not reflect the beliefs or opinions of management, the owners, or the McDonald’s company as a whole,’ he said. ‘We would like to thank the owners of McDonald’s for their continued support and for seeing that this issue has been resolved.’
In Virginia, a police officer was denied service at a restaurant because she was in uniform. The officer had been standing in line at the Noodles & Company on Duke Street in Alexandria on Monday when a female cook emerged from the back and said she wouldn’t serve the cop, Fox5 reports.
Gesturing towards the cop, the cook told the restaurant’s cashier: ‘You better pull me off the line, because I’m not serving that.’ The Alexandria police department said both the cashier and cook started laughing – and the officer, who has not been identified, left the restaurant at this point.
‘Well, your first response as a police officer is anger.’ police chief Earl Cook told the local station. These are very difficult times right now with our relations with everyone, and to have one of my officers treated in that manner unnecessarily – your first response is anger, then you calm down a bit.’
His outrage at the incident led him to visit the establishment on Tuesday. Managers apologized for it and said they would investigate what had happened. They later told him that it appeared the encounter had occurred just as the officer in question had described. Management said that they would now post signs on their windows to express their support for law enforcement, a representative for the Alexandria police union said, according to Fox.
Noodles & Company released a statement after the incident, saying they expect the ‘highest ethical and personal behavior’ from employees. ‘We value each of our guests and are committed to treating every one with dignity and respect,’ the company said. ‘We do not tolerate any form of discrimination.’ The company added that they are working with authorities to resolve the matter and have made an effort to reach out to the police officer.
In the wake of the incident, Derrick Perks, an editor for Associations Now, said there had been calls for the public to steal from the restaurant. On Twitter, the police department said they do not support any crime to come as a result of the incident – and added that they do not even support a boycott of the restaurant.

McDonald’s ad featuring gay son coming out sparks controversy in Taiwan

McDonald’s joins the long list of companies going homo.
Ronald McDonald
Via Fox News: Religious groups in Taiwan are calling for a boycott of McDonald’s after the fast food giant premiered a commercial they say promotes “gay issues.”
The minute-and-a-half ad features a boy coming out to his father by writing, “I like boys” on a McCafe coffee cup and sliding it across the table. The father initially seems upset, and walks away. But he quickly returns with his own coffee cup and writes, “I accept that you like boys.” Music swells and the son cries tears of joy. The spot closes with the tag, “Let there be more warmth in conversations.”
On YouTube the ad has over 6,900 likes and has been viewed 1.6 million times. According to the Shanghaiist, the spot has received “mostly positive” feedback from local viewers.
But the Alliance of Taiwan Religious Groups for the Protection of Family is condemning the ad, saying it promotes homosexual behavior. “Because McDonald’s is frequented by many children, it is especially important to oppose the promotion of same-sex behavior,” Chang Shou-yi of the Alliance of Taiwan Religious Groups for the Protection of Family, told Taiwanese media. Chang accused McDonald’s of “openly promoting gay issues” and mis-educating children on sexual behavior. The group is calling for a nationwide boycott of the restaurant.
When the spot debuted on March 6, Brenda Kou, who heads McDonald’s marketing department in Taiwan, told Apple Daily that the brand’s intent was to show the spirit of open dialogue between family members. She also said that McDonald’s wanted to express that different voices can be accepted in society.
Same-sex marriage is not legally recognized in Taiwan, although seven cities currently accept household registrations of same-sex couples.
According to Shanghaiist, a poll conducted by Taiwan’s Ministry of Justice found that nearly 60 percent of respondents approved of same-sex marriage. The country’s president-elect Tsai Ing-wen expressed her support for the LGBT community in a campaign video saying, “In the face of love, everyone is equal. Let everyone have the freedom to love and to pursue their happiness.”
But various Christian organizations have been leading a vocal campaign to fight the legalization of same-sex unions.  McDonald’s has used a similar concept in other countries and in 2010, the fast food chain featured a similar spot in France but the son does not directly come out to his father.

Cadbury chocolates go halal

Last Sunday was the third Sunday of Lent, which means Easter isn’t far away, heralded by the return of those cute TV commercials for Cadbury chocolate Easter eggs and bunnies.
But did you know that those Cadbury Easter chocolates are halal certified?
Halal refers to foods that are permissible for Muslims to eat or drink under Islamic Sharia law. The foods addressed are mostly types of meat and animal tissue. The most common example of non-halal (or haraam) food is pork, but foods other than pork can also be haraam. Halal criteria include the food’s source, the cause of the animal’s death, and how it was processed:

  • The food must come from a supplier that uses halal practices.
  • The slaughter must be performed by a Muslim, who must precede the slaughter by invoking the name of Allah, most commonly by saying “Bismillah” (“In the name of God”) and then three times “Allahu akbar” (God is the greatest).
  • The animal must be slaughtered with a sharp knife by cutting the throat, windpipe and the blood vessels in the neck, causing the animal’s death without cutting the spinal cord. Then the blood from the veins must be drained.

But wait! Why would Cadbury have halal-certified Easter chocolates since Muslims don’t celebrate Easter, a Christian holiday?
Cadbury Easter bunnies
The discovery that Cadbury has gone halal set off a firestorm of protests on Facebook (FB).
The Daily Mail reports that one FB user vowed she would be boycotting Cadbury Dairy Milk products simply because it is halal certified:

“Dear Cadbury Dairy Milk, this is my chocolate purchase for the fortnight, traditionally it would ALL be Cadbury, as it has been for many MANY years. But due to Cadbury being Halal Certified, Lindt will have my business from here on in.”

When questioned over her decision by other FB users who accused the woman of racism and intolerance, she defended herself saying it was not racist; it was her choice not to support a religion:

“It’s not racist, no Religion / Ideology is a race. It’s about having things forced upon us, against our will. I want to be informed about what I buy. I don’t want to support ANY Religion / Ideology, as I don’t believe in it. I shouldn’t be forced to support it every time I purchase food.”

Below are all the Cadbury products that have been certified as halal compliant:
Cadbury halal1
Brandon Walker of MadWorldNews asks:

Muslims don’t celebrate Easter. In fact, the entire celebration of Easter or Passover  is against their religion and considered haram (an insult to their god). So why on earth would you insult 70% of the United States [who are Christians] with stating that you make your products according to religious standards of a religion that can not celebrate Easter?

Pointing out that other food companies have also embraced halal, including Krispy KremeMcDonalds, and Butter Ball, Walker gets to the real reason behind Muslims’ demand that companies like Cadbury be halal-compliant:

Of course, most chocolate and baked goods are Halal, they are also Kosher. In all my life I have yet to see them stamp Kosher on the Easter Bunnies to get them to sell to good Hebrews during Passover, have you? Nowadays you are bombarded with Halal demands for this and Halal demands for that…. So why the outrage? Because they can.
The more press they receive on this issue the more they control the media. The more they win in courts, the more control they have over the laws. The more they control the holidays, the more they control labor force. It isn’t about what is in the Cadbury egg, it is about money and control. Problem is it is an insult to all other people in this country. It’s not about freedom but domination.

Epidemic of public sex/lewdness in Upper Darby, PA

Judging by its recent spate of public sex and lewdness, Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, is America’s Gomorrah.

Upper Darby is a home rule township bordering West Philadelphia in Delaware County, Pennsylvania. Located just 2.8 miles from Center City (downtown Philadelphia), Upper Darby is Pennsylvania’s 6th most populous municipality, with an ethnically-diverse total population of 82,795 in 2010.

Upper Darby first caught my attention about a week ago when I saw a news article about two lesbians being kicked out of a McDonald’s there for having sex in the restaurant’s rest room.

McD'sGoogle street view of McDonald’s at 133 South 69th St., Upper Darby, PA.

Stephanie Farr reports for Philly.com that according to Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood, shortly before 5 p.m. on June 19, 2013, a group of customers went to the manager of the McDonald’s on 69th Street in Upper Darby and told her that there were two women engaging in sex in the restaurant’s second-floor bathroom. “Everybody should do their own thing but doing it at 5 o’clock in the afternoon in a McDonald’s bathroom – whether you’re female and female, female and male or male and male – what the f—?”

The manager went to the bathroom and threw the lesbians out of the restaurant. Shortly thereafter, the group of seven or eight people who had complained about the women ran outside and began assaulting the couple. One of the women was stabbed in the shoulder with an unknown object by a female in the attacking group who appeared to be around 40 years old and had two children with her. As police arrived, the crowd scattered.

The officers had to convince the stabbing victim to seek medical assistance at a hospital, where she was treated for her injuries and released. The couple said that their attackers used derogatory language against them during the beating.

Police are in the process of obtaining surveillance footage from the McDonald’s to determine the identity of the attackers.

Upper Darby’s 69th St. seems to be a hub for public lewdness.

Earlier in the month, on June 6, 2013, Stephanie Farr did another report for Philly.com about Charles Dockery (see below) who was arrested by police for openly masturbating on 69th Street.

Charles Dockery

The same beleaguered Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said police began receiving calls around 6 p.m. Tuesday about a man exposing himself to passersby on 69th Street near Walnut.

When police arrived on scene, they found Charles Dockery, 36, sitting in the passenger’s seat of his car with the door open and no pants or underwear on. As police approached his car, Dockery jumped into the driver’s seat and sped away, nearly hitting one officer and injuring another. He then continued through the streets and hit two occupied cars and a third parked car. After hitting the parked car, Dockery jumped out of his vehicle and as he did so, a tube of KY Jelly fell out of his car, according to Chitwood.

Following a brief foot chase, Dockery was arrested and charged with open lewdness, aggravated assault on police and related offenses. “I’m sure the KY jelly is being held for evidence,” Chitwood said. “I don’t think we did a forensic exam on his penis.”

Three days ago, Upper Darby once again made the news not in a good way.

The tireless Stephanie Farr reports for Philly.com that police officers from various departments were taking part in Upper Darby Police Department’s annual 5-day bicycle school in Naylor’s Run Park.

Chance encounter: More than two dozen police officers from various departments were taking part in an annual five-day bicycle school when they stumbled upon the kinky couple

The cops on bikes were wrapping up their exercises for the day when they made their way to the baseball field, after passing by children on swings and people on the tennis courts, and stumbled upon a partially-naked couple having sex on a park bench near the baseball diamond.

The very beleaguered Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood told Philly.com: ‘There they are, on the first base line. There’s a bench, she is bent over the bench and our friend is behind her with his pants down to his ankle, banging away.”

Chitwood added that it was a hot day with temperatures in the 90s, so there was luckily no one around to witness the outdoor exploits of Jennifer Harvey, 41, and Richard McBride, 37. However, as Harvey and McBride were being arrested, a teenager did pass through the area.

McBrideHarveyRichard McBride (l); Jennifer Harvey (r)

Harvey, of Clifton Heights, and McBride, of North Philadelphia, were both charged with lewdness and disorderly conduct.

Chitwood said, “Imagine being arrested by 25 cops. ’They were as shocked as the police were. These officers go on a tour of Upper Darby to see the sites and neighborhood and instead get taken to sex incorporated.”

McDonald’s drops halal food from U.S. menu

USA Today: There have been only two McDonald’s restaurants in the U.S. that have offered halal food. Both were in east Dearborn, Mich., which has a sizable population of Arab-American Muslims.

But after a contentious lawsuit that accused the restaurant chain of selling non-halal items advertised as halal, McDonald’s has yanked its Halal Chicken McNuggets and Halal McChicken sandwiches off the menu. The move brings to an end a unique product that made the two McDonald’s restaurants popular with Muslims.

“Those items have been discontinued as a result of our continued efforts to focus on our national core menu,” a spokesman for McDonald’s said Friday.

At one of the two restaurants, the Ford Road location, a sign in Arabic and English on its drive-through menu informs customers that halal items are no longer available. The decision to discontinue the products after a 12-year run drew a mixed reaction in Dearborn: Some were disappointed, while others said it was a good move because McDonald’s had problems before with selling halal food.

The removal of the halal items, which was done last month, comes after a lawsuit filed in 2011 alleging that the fast-food restaurant was selling non-halal chicken it claimed was halal. Halal is the Muslim equivalent of kosher, requiring that meat be prepared according to Islamic guidelines, such as reciting a prayer while the animal is cut. In some cases, employees at the Ford Road location were mistakenly giving non-halal products to customers who asked for halal ones.

A $700,000 settlement was reached in April that allocated $275,000 to the Huda Clinic, a Muslim health center in Detroit; $150,000 to the Arab American National Museum in Dearborn, and $25,000 to Ahmed Ahmed, a Dearborn Heights man who filed the lawsuit against McDonald’s. The rest went to attorney fees.

Kassem Dakhlallah, the attorney who filed the lawsuit, said Friday that the company’s decision to stop selling halal food is “disappointing.” He said that McDonald’s should have tried “to ensure that all products sold were halal as advertised.” But, he added, if McDonald’s couldn’t guarantee that, “then ceasing to offer halal products was probably the best decision.”

Majed Moughni, who had opposed the settlement, said the decision by McDonald’s to end the sale of halal items “was the right thing to do.” After pressure from attorneys with McDonald’s, Moughni’s free-speech rights were curtailed after Wayne County Judge Kathleen Macdonald clamped down on his Facebook page, which was critical of the company’s handling of the case. The judge later lifted her injunction against Moughni after free-speech advocates defended him.

“If you can’t get it right 100% of the time, then you’re doing a disservice to the community,” Moughni said of the company’s handling of halal food. “Stop it if you can’t guarantee it.”

McDonald’s, which has more than 14,000 restaurants in the U.S., started selling halal products for the first time in the country at its location on Michigan Avenue near Greenfield in September 2000. It followed with the McDonald’s on Ford Road east of Schaefer. In 2000, about 65% of sales of Chicken McNuggets at the Michigan Avenue location were for the halal version.

Although McDonald’s has discontinued selling halal products in the U.S., it still sells halal food in Muslim-majority countries such as Saudi Arabia.

And I’m waiting for the raaaacist card to be played in 3, 2, 1…
