More Democrat psychopathy: Red Hen owner pursued Sanders in-laws to another restaurant; burnt decapitated animal on DHS employee’s front porch

Last Friday night, June 23, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her in-laws went to The Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, VA.
There, restaurant owner Stephanie Wilkinson told Ms. Sanders to leave, ostensibly because restaurant employees object to Sanders’ presence because of President Trump’s no transgenders in the U.S. military policy and his  “immigration policy” determination to actually implement federal laws on illegal border-crossing.

It must be noted that what the jackals of the Mainstream Media call “separation of families” is actually the Trump administration enacting a measure that flowed from the  Clinton-era Flores vs. Reno Supreme Court decision allowing unaccompanied illegal border-crossing minors be held “in the least restrictive setting appropriate to the minor’s age and special needs.”

But Wilkinson wasn’t content with kicking Sanders out of The Red Hen.
According to Governor Mike Huckabee, Wilkinson actually followed Sanders’ in-laws to another restaurant across the street, and organized a protest outside while the in-laws were dining.

Meanwhile, around two dozen threats were made in the past few days, primarily against Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers. Leftwing psychopaths also doxxed thousands of Department of Homeland Security (DHS) employees and released their personally identifiable information on social media.

Where’s the outcry from PETA and the Humane Society?

On Saturday, June 23, Acting Deputy Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Claire M. Grady issued a memo warning DHS employees to stay on alert because of “specific and credible threats that have been levied against certain DHS employees and a sharp increase in the overall number of general threats against DHS employees.” The memo recommends DHS employees to “always keep doors and windows locked, be aware of unexpected changes” at their homes and “utilize maximum security setting on social media platforms.”  (Washington Times)

Liberal Tolerance: Red Hen restaurant kicks out White House press secretary Sarah Sanders

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, White House press secretary and daughter of former Arkansas governor Republican Mike Huckabee, was thrown out of a Virginia restaurant Friday night (June 23) in an incident that sparked a social media storm. The reason? Sanders works for President Donald Trump.

An Associated Press report, first picked up by the Christian Broadcasting Network, and subsequently by other media, said Sanders was ordered out of The Red Hen Restaurant in Lexington, Virginia, by the owner Stephanie Wilkinson, even as the chef was cooking Sanders’ dinner. Sanders said the event said far more about the owner of the restaurant than it did about her.

In a tweet from her official account, Sanders said, “I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so.”  The tweet generated more than 22,000 replies in about an hour. The ensuing furor pitted both supporters and detractors of Sanders. Her father, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, even joined the conversation. “Bigotry.” He tweeted. “On the menu at Red Hen Restaurant in Lexington VA. Or you can ask for the ‘Hate Plate.’ And appetizers are ‘small plates for small minds.”’

The incident mirrors an earlier incident in the week when Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen cut short a working dinner in a Mexican restaurant after protesters shouted, “Shame!” until she left.

In the ensuing social media dialogues, people from all across the country began to take sides. Some wanted to organize protests outside Red Hen restaurant, while others championed owner Wilkinson as a hero.

On Yelp, a Los Angeles-based restaurant reviewer chimed in, “Don’t eat here if you’re a Republican, wearing a MAGA hat, or are a patriot.”

Other Yelp commenters, however, supported the restaurant owner’s action. A responder from Commerce City, Colorado wrote, “Bonus: this place is run by management who stuck up for their beliefs and who are true Americans. THANK YOU!!!!”

Red Hen was trending toward the top of Twitter — 75,000 mentions within a couple hours of the first news stories.

In an interview with the Washington Post, Wilkinson explained her reasons for why she asked Sanders and her companions to leave.

“Several Red Hen employees were gay,” she said. “They knew Sanders had defended Trump’s desire to bar transgender people from the military. This month, they had all watched her evade questions and defend a Trump policy that caused migrant children to be separated from their parents.” Wilkinson said that the Sanders party already had been seated and their orders taken when she was informed by telephone who they were. It took her several minutes to drive from her home to the restaurant. She conferred with her employees.

“Tell me what you want me to do. I can ask her to leave,” Wilkinson told her staff. “They said yes.” Wilkerson then walked up to Sanders’ chair.

“I’m the owner,” she said. “I’d like you to come out to the patio with me for a word.”

She told Sanders about her feelings vis-sà-vis the president and recent events.

“I explained that the restaurant has certain standards that I feel it has to uphold, such as honesty, and compassion, and cooperation. I’d like to ask you to leave.”

She said that Sanders’ response was immediate: “That’s fine. I’ll go.”

As of Saturday afternoon, media personnel from broadcast stations and newspapers were camping out on the street next to the Red Hen. Wilkinson, however, remained steadfast in her belief that she was justified in throwing out the White House press secretary because she works for President Trump. She told the Washington Post, “Whatever happens, we will soldier on. Absolutely, yes, I would have done the same thing again.”

It must be noted that what the jackals of the Mainstream Media call “separation of families” is actually the Trump administration enacting a measure that flowed from the  Clinton-era Flores vs. Reno Supreme Court decision allowing unaccompanied illegal border-crossing minors be held “in the least restrictive setting appropriate to the minor’s age and special needs.”

According to TruthFinder, Wilkinson and Richter own and co-habit a home in Lexington, VA:

  • Stephanie Wilkinson, 55, has a Ph.D. in European and American Religious History from the University of Virginia. Her LinkedIn profile here.
  • Duncan Richter, 51, is a philosophy professor at Virginia Military Institute in Roanoke, VA. His LinkedIn profile here.

So much for higher education . . . .

Their lofty degrees evidently taught them nothing about classical or original liberalism — the political ideology that believes in the primacy of individual liberty; that while government is necessary to protect individuals from being harmed by others, government itself can pose a threat to liberty; and that no one or group has a monopoly on truth, and so we must tolerate our differences of opinion in the market place of ideas.

In a tweet, Congressman Ben Cline (R-VA) said Wilkinson is a cousin of snake-tongue Meryl Streep:

On behalf of my hometown of Lexington, I want to apologize for the rudeness of one liberal New York transplant (who also happens to be Meryl Streep’s cousin). We hope you will come back and enjoy our area’s true southern hospitality.

Demonic Left's curses on Trump backfired

2 Timothy 3:1-6, 9, 13

But mark this:
There will be terrible times in the last days.
People will be lovers of themselves . . .
not lovers of the good . . .
lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God . . . .
Have nothing to do with such people.
They are the kind who worm their way into homes . . . .
But they will not get very far because . . .
their folly will be clear to everyone. . . .
deceiving and being deceived.

Last night’s Academy Awards show continued its ratings drop, the second lowest in the history of the awards, with 4% fewer viewers than last year (2016), which itself had 6% fewer viewers than the 2015 show. The 2015 Academy Awards show, in turn, had ratings that were a 16% drop from 2014. (Source: The Daily Lion)
Does anyone see a trend?
As expected, this year’s Academy Awards show was saturated with anti-Trump jokes and criticisms of his policies on illegal aliens and a temporary visa ban on people from terrorist-exporting countries in the Middle East. As former Governor Mike Huckabee puts it:

Last night, ABC aired yet another Hollywood awards ceremony in which incredibly wealthy, attractive and privileged celebrities congratulated themselves on being oppressed and misunderstood. They again left the walls of their gated mansions with their armed security guards and traveled past heavily-armed police into the walls of the Kodak Theater, where they hectored us about how terrible guns and security walls are. This year included an extra layer of lectures on open borders and welcoming all migrants to come on in, from people who won’t let you get within 200 yards of them unless your name is on the VIP list.

But the Academy Awards ended in an epic fail when Warren Beatty and an embalmed Faye Dunaway were given the wrong envelope and so announced the wrong movie, La La Land, as Best Picture, which a PriceWaterhouseCoopers accountant corrected with an envelope containing the name of the real winner, Moonlight — a more PC movie about two black homosexuals.

Two nights before the Academy Awards show, on February 24, witches and occultists in various locations across America performed a ritual at midnight, the darkest hour, to put a curse on President Trump. As the New York Post reports:

Witches around the world are expected to cast a mass spell at the stroke of midnight Friday “to bind Donald Trump and all those who abet him” — as Christian groups are urging prayer to combat this “declaration of spiritual war.”
The spell is to be performed “on every waning crescent moon until [Trump] is removed from office,” according to a Facebook page dedicated to the paranormal stunt, which involves setting ablaze an “unflattering” picture of the 45th president….
After lighting a white candle, the spell begins with the words: “Hear me, oh spirits/ Of Water, Earth, Fire, and Air/ Heavenly hosts/ Demons of the infernal realms/ And spirits of the ancestors. I call upon you/ To bind/ Donald J. Trump/ So that he may fail utterly/ That he may do no harm/ To any human soul/ Nor any tree/ Animal/ Rock/ Stream/ or Sea,” is to be said when lighting the orange candle.
Practitioners are then asked to burn Trump’s photo with the orange candle while “loudly” chanting, “So mote it be!” or Trump’s famed catchphrase, “You’re fired!” over and over, according to the instructions published this month by “magical thinker” Michael Hughes on Extranewsfeed.com.
At the end of the ritual, demonstrators are to “blow out orange candle, visualizing Trump blowing apart into dust or ash.”

But the curse backfired, as seen in the disastrous conclusion of the Academy Awards show two nights later.
This is not the first time a curse on Trump has backfired. According to WND:
The far-left feminist blog Jezebel, named after the biblical queen who mandated the worship of Baal and Asherah instead of God, published a gushing story in September 2015 about “Brooklyn Witches” of immigrant descent cursing Trump because they “wholeheartedly believe that Trump and the rest of the GOP are garbage.”
Trump evidently overcame the curse, along with everything else in his way, to win the presidency a year later.

Moloch, Baphomet, Madonna

The creature who calls herself “Madonna” also placed a curse on Trump, which also backfired. In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Jan. 10, 2017, the creature said:

On election night I was sitting at a table with my agent, who is also one of my very best friends, and we were truly praying. We were praying. She was on her computer. She’s friends with someone who was working on Hillary [Clinton]’s campaign and was getting blow-by-blow reports, and at one point she was like, “It’s not looking good.” It was just like watching a horror show. And then she was reading from the Quran, and I was reading from the Zohar*. We were doing everything: lighting candles, meditating, praying, offering our lives to God forever, if only. I went to sleep, and since that night, I wake up every morning and it’s like when you break up with somebody who has really broken your heart. You wake up and for a second you’re just you, and then you go, “Oh, the person I love more than anything has just broken my heart, and I’m devastated and I’m broken and I have nothing. I’m lost.” That’s how I feel every morning. I wake up and I go, “Wait a second. Donald Trump is the president. It’s not a bad dream. It really happened.” It’s like being dumped by a lover and also being stuck in a nightmare.

*Note: Zohar is one of the books that make up the Talmud, and the foundational work of the Kabbalah.

So much for campaign finance reforms: Ghost corporations fund 2016 elections

Campaign finance reform is the political effort to change the involvement of money in politics, primarily in political campaigns.
Attempts to regulate campaign finance by legislation date back to 1867, but the modern era of “campaign finance reform” in the United States began in 1971 with the passage of the Federal Election Campaign Act (FECA). The Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act (BCRA) of 2002, also known as “McCain-Feingold” after its sponsors, is the most recent major federal law on campaign finance, a key provision of which limited the use of corporate and union money to fund ads discussing political issues within 60 days of a general election or 30 days of a primary election. In 2010, however, the Supreme Court struck down that provision on constitutional grounds in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission.
Now comes news that mysterious “ghost” corporations  newly-formed limited liability companies (LLC) with cryptic names that offer few clues about their owners — are funding campaign super PACs).

Note: A political action committee (PAC) is an organization that pools political campaign contributions from members and donates those funds to campaign for or against candidates, ballot initiatives, or legislation. Super PACs, officially known as “independent-expenditure only committees”, may not make contributions to candidate campaigns or parties, but may engage in unlimited political spending (supposedly) independently of the campaigns. Unlike traditional PACs, super PACs can raise funds from individuals, corporations, unions, and other groups without any legal limit on donation size.

U$A
Matea Gold and Anu Narayanswamy report for The Washington Post, March 18, 2016, that there is “a growing cadre of mystery outfits financing big-money super PACs,” many of which were formed just days or weeks before making 6- or ­7-figure contributions — an arrangement that election law experts say violates a long-standing federal ban on straw donors.

Note: A straw donor is a person who illegally uses another person’s money to make a political contribution in their own name, in violation of 2 U.S.C. § 441f of the 1971 Federal Election Campaign Act.

The ghost corporations make it difficult to discern the identities of wealthy players seeking to influence this year’s presidential and congressional elections. But the individuals behind the “ghost corporations” appear to face little risk of reprisal from a deeply polarized Federal Election Commission (FEC), which recently deadlocked on whether to even investigate such cases although federal law requires political committees to confirm that a donation is legal before accepting it.
One of the ghost corporations is a trust called DE First Holdings that, two days before Christmas, was quietly formed in Delaware where corporations are required to reveal little about their workings. A day later, DE First Holdings dropped $1 million into a super PAC with ties to Steven Fulop, Democratic mayor of Jersey City, N.J., who is considering a gubernatorial bid. DE First Holdings’ owner is unknown.

  • 1 out of every 8 dollars collected by super PACs this election cycle have come from corporations, including millions from opaque and hard-to-trace “ghost” entities.
  • So far, 680 companies have given at least $10,000 to a super PAC this cycle, together contributing nearly $68 million through Jan. 31. Their donations made up 12% of the $549 million raised by such groups, which can accept unlimited donations.
  • At this rate, corporations will far exceed the $86 million they gave to super PACs in the entire 2012 presidential cycle, when such donations totaled 10% of the money raised by such groups.
  • Many corporate donors in the 2016 elections are well-established hedge funds, energy companies and real estate firms. But a significant share of the money is coming from “ghost entities”.

One of the new “ghost corporations” is Children of Israel LLC, a company formed in California last June by Shaofen “Lisa” Gao, a real estate agent in Cupertino, Calif., whose Happy Realty firm helps Chinese buyers find homes in Silicon Valley. Gao has no history of making political contributions in California or at the federal level.
On a form filed with the secretary of state’s office in September, Gao listed Children of Israel’s type of business as “Donations”. Weeks after being formed, Children of Israel began giving money to Pursuing America’s Greatness, a super PAC supporting the presidential bid of former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, totaling $150,000, FEC records show. After Huckabee backed out of the presidential race, in January 2016 Children of Israel donated $250,000 to Stand for Truth, a super PAC backing Ted Cruz.
Gao did not respond to repeated calls and emails seeking comment.
The Little Rock-based treasurer for the pro-Huckabee super PAC did not respond to a request for comment about whether the group vetted Children of Israel. Eric Lycan, the attorney for the pro-Cruz super PAC Stand For Truth, declined to address specific donations but said in a statement that the super PAC “at all times complied with the law” and investigated any potentially illegal contributions. “Contributions from an LLC to a super PAC are legal and permissible, and the fact standing alone that a contribution came from an LLC would not be reason to return the contribution,” he added.
Jan Baran, a longtime Republican election-law attorney, agreed that there is a need for the FEC to weigh in, noting that the commission has not issued any new rules regarding corporate donations since the 2010 Citizens United ruling made such spending permissible. He said, “The agency is just not providing any legal guidance on what the rules are in the aftermath of all these momentous court decisions. That’s the job of the FEC, and it hasn’t done its job.”

Newt is a Big Govt RINO

Politicians will tell you anything in order to get your vote.
The yardstick we should use to take the measure of a politician who now swears he’s changed his ways and is repentant about his past behavior, is his past behavior, not his present words.
Did you know that:

  • Newt Gingrich was instrumental in the creation of the Department of Education?
  • Newt was listed as a member of the “one world government” Council on Foreign Relations?
  • Newt led the way for the United States to form NAFTA, and join GATT and the World Trade Organization?
  • Newt said he’s a “big fan” of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who began the U.S.’s road to socialism?
  • Newt said in a speech in July 1995 that “The American challenge in leading the world is compounded by our Constitution” and that we would have to “rethink” our Constitution?

Please take the time to watch this half-hour video on Newt’s voting record.
Please note that I’m not endorsing the last part of the video when McManus, the narrator, seems to be extolling Ron Paul.
I haven’t decided which GOP candidate I’ll vote for. I can’t even say there’s a candidate I really like. I’m in the information-gathering phase and, frankly, am puzzled by the passionate and indignant outrage of some conservatives toward any information that may be critical of their candidate.
The Iowa caucus is next Tuesday, but that is only the first event of the long GOP primary process. History also shows that the winner of the Iowa caucus is not necessarily the actual GOP presidential nominee. No one now remembers that in 2008, Mike Huckabee (who’s he? LOL) won the Iowa caucus.

Ten Reasons Why We Will Get a RINO in 2012


1)      There are at least eight people seriously considering a run, with no one in the lead as the clear choice. A splintered vote tends to favor incumbents.
2)      GOP brass are still not serious about stopping the deficit and still seem stuck in the past.
3)      Tea party enthusiasm has not translated into Republican decisiveness.
4)       Boehner and Cantor have no accomplishments to campaign on. The battle cry in 2012 will likely be “at least we’re not Democrats.”
5)      By capitulating to the Left over tea party racism charges and the Gabby Giffords shooting, GOP brass have forfeited the narrative.
6)      The primaries never got changed from McCain’s puzzling victory in 2008. Liberals in New Hampshire are about to make the choice for all of us.
7)      Obama may be less respected as President, but he’s still a popular person and will not lie down in defeat. Be prepared for Hannity and Limbaugh to advise you to choose the most electable winner.
8)      GOP brass already know you would vote for a bowling ball to stop Obama. They have no motivation to give you anything better than a bowling ball.
9)      The media want it to be Romney or Pawlenty. Be prepared for these two to receive gushing coverage.
10)  Bad economies mean less opportunity for underdogs since fewer people can afford to donate.

Let's Not Fall for This Again

Mike Huckabee: I’m Fine with Bloated, Overweight Government

by AWR Hawkins

When former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee ran for President in 2008, he did so in the guise of a conservative. But those of us who listened closely to his speeches heard a message that was far from compatible with the ideals of limited government and expanded liberty: two benchmarks of conservatism by any measure. Instead we heard Huckabee openly support a nationwide, federally mandated smoking ban, and expanding the powers of the federal government to mandate limits on carbon emissions via cap and trade.
Because of the exponential growth things like a national smoking ban and cap and trade legislation would cause in the size of government, Rush Limbaugh often warned that Huckabee was a “populist” rather than a conservative. In other words, Huckabee had a good grasp on how to give speeches in the vernacular of heartland America, but his solutions to the problems faced by those same people rested in an expansion of government for which the constitution made no provision. (Like Clinton, Huckabee could feel our pain, and like Obama, he could ease that pain via government intervention.)
And believe it or not, Huckabee’s record on taxes (and tax increases) is even more dismal than his record on smoking bans and cap and trade legislation. While Governor of Arkansas, he literally begged state legislators to support tax increases on the citizens of that state.

When Arkansas faced what FOX NEWS’ Carl Cameron described as “general revenue shortfall in the state budget,” a desperate Huckabee stood before the state legislature and told them he’d found a way to meet Arkansas’ near $100 million shortfall:

“There’s a lot of support for a tax at the wholesale level for tobacco, and that’s fine with me. I will be very happy to sign that, because it’s a revenue stream that will…help us meet that 90 to 100 million target.
Some have suggested [a tax on] the retail level of tobacco. If that ends up being your preference I will accept that. Others have suggested a surcharge on the income tax. That’s acceptable: I’m fine with that. Others have suggested perhaps a sales tax. That’s fine.
Yet others have suggested a hybrid [tax] that would collect some monies from any one or a combination of [these] various ideas. And if that’s the plan the House and Senate agree upon, you will have nothing but my profound thanks.”

Not only was Huckabee’s support for any and every tax scheme imaginable antithetical to the conservative mind, but the way he groveled before the legislature was shameful: not at all indicative of a leader.
To make matters worse, when Huckabee ran for president in 2008, he tried to pawn himself off as a tax cutter while refusing to apologize for his tax increases. When Face the Nation’s Bob Schieffer cornered him on these things, Huckabee said: “I worked with our legislature and we got major improvements done on our school system…without [which] our kids would still be languishing in last place. …I don’t apologize for raising the expectations and the hopes and the opportunities for the kids in my state. I don’t apologize for building roads either.” (Note: Huckabee seems to equate raising taxes with raising “expectations” when the revenue raised is spent on education.)
Isn’t this always the response we get from tax hikers? They never want to talk about the money they took from the people: they just want to point out all the wonderful things they bought with the money they confiscated through higher taxes.
Rush was right when he discerned the populist strain in Huckabee’s message, and that strain threatens the very conservatism Huckabee claims to embrace.
We don’t need a Republican presidential candidate for whom government is the solution. Rather, we need someone who lives by Reagan’s mantra: “Government isn’t the solution, government is the problem.” Huckabee has these things reversed in his mind.
For anyone considering voting for this man, please think again. Huckabee IS NOT a Conservative, he is an opportunist and in 2012 we do not need another McCain in the running, if we do we will end up with another four years of Obama.
