VIDEO: Burger King messes with its customers to make a point about bullying . . . that fails very ba

I kinda sorta get what they were trying to do. There’s the tiniest seed of a worthy idea in here. But that doesn’t excuse the ham-handed execution or the way they very unfairly put actual customers on the spot. You want to get set up for national humiliation when you’re just trying to grab some lunch? Burger King is the place to go:

Backlash against pro-Trump Facebook post shutters Arizona restaurant

Owners of Cup It Up American Grill in Tucson, Arizona, were forced to shut down their establishment after a backlash against pro-Trump statement posted on social media.

The list of things they approved of included: “OUR president, Always Standing for the National Anthem,” repealing Obamacare, and lawful immigration, among others. On the “disapproved” list were kneeling for the national anthem, Antifa, fake news, hate groups and hate crimes, and late night hosts getting political.

Numbers Show The Deck is Stacked for Republicans in California’s Legislature

Elected Republicans represent nearly a third of California’s legislators, but are only getting 18 percent of their bills passed, for eventual consideration by Gov. Jerry Brown. This is despite the fact that they represent nearly 40 percent of the voters who cast ballots in the last election. And even worse, Brown so far has only approved about 16.5 percent of Republican bills, while Democrats saw 83.4 percent of their bills signed into law.

A few revealing statistics surrounding the outcomes for 2,550 new bills introduced during the recent 2017 session in the California Legislature point out which party gets to feast, and which can expect leftover crumbs.

Oscar-winning producer Harvey Weinstein has been exposed as a sexual predator. Weinstein, a liberal Democrat, is implicated in one of the biggest sexual scandals in recent memory.

More than two-dozen women – among them actresses Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow and Rose McGowan – have made a number of harassment accusations against him. Some even accused him of rape and sexual assault.

NFL: Blame the media for enflaming tensions

Incongruously, the media has been more focused these days on the NFL/national anthem flap than the most deadly shooting in U.S. history that occurred a mere two weeks ago in Las Vegas, Nevada. That by itself should say something. The media has been curiously incurious to dig too deeply into the past of Nevada shooter Stephen Paddock. What are they afraid they will find, another James Hodgkinson?

But the NFL controversy would not exist if the grandstanding Colin Kaepernick had not decided to lend his name to the Black Lives Matter movement by sitting down for the national anthem. And that wouldn’t have happened if a bunch of St. Louis (now Los Angeles) Rams had not made a “hands up, don’t shoot” gesture at a football game shortly after the acquittal of the police officer who shot Michael Brown in self-defense. And that wouldn’t have happened if the media hadn’t promoted the notion that Brown, Freddie Gray , and Trayvon Martin were simply innocent victims, instead of the criminals they were.

Kaepernick sues NFL

Everybody’s favorite anthem protester is filing suit against the National Football League. Colin Kaepernick is charging that the reason he doesn’t have a job as a quarterback is that the NFL owners are colluding to “to deprive Mr. Kaepernick of employment rights in retaliation for Mr. Kaepernick’s leadership and advocacy for equality and social justice,” according to the lawsuit.

Last season, Kaepernick played with the San Francisco 49ers. A few games into the season he began kneeling during the National Anthem to supposedly protest racial injustice and police brutality. This created a backlash among fans, and the NFL’s television ratings dropped as a result.

The Harvey Weinstein Saga

Well folks, what can I tell you about this despicable Harvey Weinstein animal that hasn’t been already told? For a week now, this low-life Weinstein has been at center stage, playing the leading role in a sexual harassment scandal which has gotten more attention than the Las Vegas Massacre and the N.F.L., anthem kneeling story both put together – but, don’t kid yourselves, there is a good reason for it. Other than the story itself it seems that, for once, Hollywood’s safely-guarded Pandora’s Box, once opened has skeletons streaming out in swarming hordes. Ask me and I say: about time, isn’t it?

Anyways, just in case that you, for some strange reason happened to have missed all the hullabaloo, let me try and give you a quick précis of what is going on. First, Harvey Weinstein, besides being an alleged sexual predator, which we now know he is, in addition, he also happens to be an American film producer and former studio director. The Hollywood mogul, together with brother Bob, co-founded Miramax which produced multiple independent films all enjoying great success culminating in the winning of an Academy Award for his production Shakespeare In Love, also garnering seven Tony Awards for producing a variety of winning plays and musicals. Ironically, in 2004, the predator was appointed CBE - an honorary Commander of the Order of the British Empire in recognition of his contributions to the British film industry. As one can imagine, with the successes came an immense amount of wealth to this sick puppy.

Afghanistan Strategy Is the Only Hope for Education Reform

The federal government is currently enmeshed in two gigantic, expensive reform projects, one domestic and one foreign. Both are failures even though the tactics couldn’t be more different. In one — at a cost of $2.5 trillion — Uncle Sam is trying manfully to completely change a political culture.

In the other — at just under $1 trillion — Uncle Sugar won’t touch the culture. What is the same, and the ultimate source of failure, is the obstinate refusal of project architects to recognize their strategy isn’t working now and won’t be working in the future.

Derrick Watson is at it again: Hawaii-based U.S. judge thinks he’s president, once more blocks Trump

This is why, for all his flaws, Donald Trump is worth all the trouble if he can reshape the federal judiciary. The political left cares nothing for the rule of law, and that goes for the judicial left as well. When they can’t win in the legislative realm, they run and find a Democrat judge who will come up with a pretext, however flimsy, for striking down duly established laws and perfectly constitutional executive actions.

Nowhere has this been more true than with President Trump’s attempts to bolster national security with travel restrictions from countries with terrorist ties, and no one has been a greater offender than Hawaii-based federal judge Derrick Watson.

Open a Criminal Investigation of Barack Hussein Obama

It’s suddenly big news that there are perverts in Hollywood. The really big news is that former President Barack Hussein Obama’s communist and terrorist-support network remains a state secret. Attorney General Jeff Sessions won’t touch it.

Until we come to grips with Obama, our first Marxist president with radical Muslim sympathies, we are adrift as a nation. He ran for office as a “committed Christian,” a monumental deception to conceal his record of service to the communist cause, Muslim background, and grooming by suspected Soviet espionage agent Frank Marshall Davis.

FBI knew of Russian racketeering, routing ‘millions of dollars to benefit Clinton Foundation

“Russia, Russia, Russia, collusion, Russia, Putin, Russia.” That’s pretty much all we’ve heard from the left since the planned ascension of Queen Hillary the First crashed and burned.  Russia bought some Facebook ads, Russia ‘hacked the election,’ and Russia colluded with Trump to destroy poor, sweet, innocent Hillary. If there was something Democrats wanted, but didn’t get, the odds are it was somehow Russia’s fault.

Mysteriously, the voices that were screaming “Russia” the loudest are oddly quiet this morning.

When the culture pushed aside the gentleman for Hugh Hefner, it paved the way for Harvey Weinstein

Just a few weeks before Hollywood commenced one of its toughest acting jobs - pretending to be shocked over the creepy behavior of Harvey Weinstein - much of American culture grinned and snickered over the recently concluded life of Hugh Hefner. Even though it’s hard to detect much difference between the two.

One lived in a mansion with women much younger than he, paraded them around like sexual objects and obtained sexual favors from them in exchange for his continued beneficience.

Refugee resettlement putting America at risk

Maryland’s diminutive and unassuming private citizen, Ann Corcoran, has been writing about refugee resettlement on her now-famous blog, Refugee Resettlement Watch, since 2007. Without her work it is highly doubtful we would know nearly as much about this dangerous and wildly out-of-control program. To know her, listen to her, watch her on TV, she reminds you of a kindly grandmother, (which she is), quietly but assertively lecturing us to eat our porridge. You could never imagine the ire she has aroused among the radical Left and their allies in the refugee resettlement industry.

But she has.

Trump is disturbing the peace by refusing to pretend awful things are fine

Normal Americans with basic common sense understand things like this. They understand it’s not fine to run up $20 trillion in debt. They understand it’s not fine to make awful deals with evil regimes that allow them to build nuclear weapons. They understand it’s not fine to report “news” stories that are not true. They understand it’s not fine to destroy insurance markets and then use taxpayer money to bail out the insurers so you can pretend it’s not happening.

They also understand it’s not fine to run to the news media anonymously with information, which may not even be true, that you’re not supposed to be sharing. And they understand it’s not fine to run for political office promising to do something, only to not do it while pretending you tried when you really didn’t.

NYT Editor Slams Pence As ‘F***ing Horrible,’ Says Reporters Tried To Sway Voters Agains

Project Veritas video reveals a New York Times editor trashing Vice President Mike Pence as “f***ing horrible” and indicating that reporters wrote stories during the presidential campaign with the intention of persuading them to vote against Trump.

“I think one of the things that maybe journalists were thinking about is like, oh, if we write about him, about how insanely crazy he is and how ludicrous his policies are, then maybe people will read it and be like, oh wow, we shouldn’t vote for him,” Desiree Shoe, the London homepage editor for the NYT, says in the video. She claims in the video that it’s hard for journalists to cover Trump in an “unbiased” manner, describing him as “an oblivious idiot.”—More…

Congressional Black Caucus Prayer Breakfast: The Great Black Deception

Flipping through my TV channels, I stumbled upon the 2017 Congressional Black Caucus Annual Prayer Breakfast on The Word Network; the world’s largest black religious channel. This year’s theme was, “And Still I Rise”.

Folks, I thought, “Oh my gosh, these people have no shame.” This breakfast was all about exploiting black’s Christian heritage to deceive them for the purpose of furthering Leftists’ anti-Christian agenda. Every musical performance praised Jesus. Leftists despise Jesus, aggressively seeking to ban the God of Christianity from the public square.  Several of the all democrat speakers quoted the Bible to strengthen their political deceptions. The truth in quoting the Bible is as repulsive to Leftists as showing Dracula the Cross.

Just because something is in the news doesn’t make it news

President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell having a great lunch meeting and a kumbaya moment is not news to me. I’m glad they presented a united message, but legislative results are news. There were none yet.

What Hillary Clinton thinks or says about anything does not matter to me one iota. She is irrelevant to any conversation. And I wouldn’t waste time reading her book about blaming everybody and everything for her presidential loss. It’s never her fault.

Apple ‘head of diversity’ apologizes for saying white men are not all exactly the same

Pretty delicious irony here: If your job is “head of diversity,” you don’t have to design computers or software or anything like that. But you can fail at your job, and you would do that by acknowledging that there’s any concept of diversity apart from what the cultural orthodoxy says.

Denise Young Smith has this job at Apple, and apparently she engages in a little too much independent thought because one day she got a little tired of the idea that diversity can’t be about anything but racial and sexual identity. So she said so, and that’s where her trouble started:
