Another Pro-Trump Conservative Company Targeted By Activists [Video]

This has got to stop!

Border Wall

The liberal “resistance” against American traditionalism has taken many a shape over the course of the last several months. We have seen everything from hat thieves crying in their mugshots, to the unforgivable actions of James T. Hodgkinson.

We’ve seen young children in Florida exploited before their bodies were even in the ground, by their classmates no less.  We’ve been told to believe that this behavior is normal, or, even more bizarrely, we’re made to believe that these tragedies and our responses to them should be broadcast publicly both via social media and the mainstream television syndicates – all of whom are corporately controlled.

And, because of all of these obstacles to free speech, it becomes extremely easy for the liberal left to squash anyone they disagree with, for any reason.

Such is the case of Thrasher Coffee, who recently revealed that they indeed support President Donald Trump.  This brought an onslaught of radical leftist “activists” to come out of the woodwork and attempt to sully the good name of this small business.  Thrasher was forced to respond swiftly.

In a letter to their customers, Thrasher explained:

Dear Coffee Lovers,

I hope you had a Happy 4th! We sure did, and WOW! so many new fans. Thank you so much! Thrasher Coffee has existed for almost 5 years now. As any small business it has been an uphill, in the mud battle. Recently, we embraced our conservative background and the groundswell has been incredible. The silent majority stand with Trump and we are breaking sales record after sales record. So much winning! However, there has definitely been lots of backlash and sadly we had to disable the reviews on our Facebook due to very negative reviews from people who have never even tried our coffee before. We were at a solid 4.9 with so many wonderful people leaving kind comments, and as soon as we started putting Trump on the bag the negative reviews, comments and messages poured in. They were nasty to say the least!

On the flip side, I’ve also had some very nice conversations with customers who loved the beans, but couldn’t back our support of Trump. As Americans we can disagree, be passionate about our beliefs, but still treat each other with respect. So to the new fans, welcome! Thank you, thank you! To the old fans, thanks for sticking with us all these years! Together we will make America great again, one cup of coffee at a time.

– Seth

The world of leftist angst is now affecting our ability to do business with one another.

The hullabaloo even made it all the way to Paste Magazine, where a blunt and meandering take on the entire ownership team of the coffee company was published as an act of petulant “resistance” to capitalism.

Let me give y’all a piece of advice that you can pass on to your angry, liberal leaning acquaintances:  If you don’t like something, don’t buy it.  If you don’t like someone, don’t vote for them.  But going out of your way to disparage a small business that you would have otherwise never hear of is just plain pathetic.

So, dear reader, you know what to do.

New Pork Rules Could Outlaw Bacon in California

This would be an unforgivable overreach by the state government.

There are plenty of times in which Americans engage in a bit of exaggeration at the expense of our federal government.  It’s a defense mechanism, really, in which we are trained to extrapolate the worst possible outcome of any interaction with our elected officials, to guard against abuse at the hands of the tyrannical among us. Very rarely do these sorts of predictions come true.  Truly, this is just part of the American DNA, and it has deep roots in the caffeinated waters of Boston Harbor back in 1773. And if you thought that a new tax on tea was a flimsy enough excuse to rail against the oppressors, what happens when a state government outlaws bacon? At the beginning of next year, California will begin enforcing an animal welfare proposition approved overwhelmingly by voters in 2018 that requires more space for breeding pigs, egg-laying chickens and veal calves. National veal and egg producers are optimistic they can meet the new standards, but only 4% of hog operations now comply with the new rules. Unless the courts intervene or the state temporarily allows non-compliant meat to be sold in the state, California will lose almost all of its pork supply, much of which comes from Iowa, and pork producers will face higher costs to regain a key market. The threat is no hogwash, either. California’s restaurants and groceries use about 255 million pounds of pork a month, but its farms produce only 45 million pounds, according to Rabobank, a global food and agriculture financial services company. The National Pork Producers Council has asked the U.S. Department of Agriculture for federal aid to help pay for retrofitting hog facilities around the nation to fill the gap. Hog farmers said they haven’t complied because of the cost and because California hasn’t yet issued…

Pro-Trump PACs Rake in The Dough, Setting Former POTUS Up with Massive War Chest

The sheer value of Trump’s coffers is nigh unprecedented.

Despite his arbitrary removal from both Twitter and Facebook, former President Donald Trump continues to exude a great deal of sway over the American political ecosystem…and he’s only going to get more influential from here. Trump and his surrogates are still months away from officially announcing anything as far as 2024 goes, but, with the 2022 midterms just around the corner, the MAGA machine is already beginning to get tuned up. And let’s just say that there is plenty of fuel in the tank, too. Former President Donald Trump’s political committees brought in $82 million during the first half of 2021 and have $102 million in the bank, according to federal filings made public Saturday evening. The figures, shared first with POLITICO, underscore the profound reach of Trump’s fundraising power. While the former president is out of office and has been deplatformed on social media sites, he maintains a massive online donor network that he could lean on should he wage a 2024 comeback bid. The numbers are extraordinary, historically speaking. The scenario is virtually unprecedented: Never in history has a former president banked nine figures’ worth of donations to power a political operation. Over the first six months of the year, Trump’s political groups whipped up supporters with baseless claims of election fraud to pull in cash on a scale similar to the GOP’s official political arms, the Republican National Committee and the party’s House and Senate campaign committees. The numbers are undoubtedly troubling for liberals listening in from the left side of the aisle, as worries continue to grow about whether or not the Democrats have any shot at holding onto a majority in the House in 15 months’ time.
