AWESOME: Doughnut Owner’s Son Tweets About His “Sad” Dad Reminds Us of the Value of Supporting Small Business

Capitalism and liberty are beautiful things!

These days, privileged hipster socialists love to rant against the “evils” of capitalism, but here’s one great story about the power of social media and the value of supporting small businesses that reminds us of the irreplaceable value of private business, hard work, and the power of the dollar.

Here’s the thing: it far more moral when individuals are given the opportunity to earn their own way, build their own business, and contribute to their community while also accumulating wealth for themselves.

This is the American dream than millions upon millions of people all over the world have come here to pursue and have the greatest nation in the history of the world to show for it.

Trending: Investigation Into Origin Of FBI Russia Probe Expanding Based on ‘New Evidence’

Yahoo News reports:

A boy in Texas is thanking his Twitter followers for boosting business at his family’s doughnut shop after posting about his “sad dad” and gaining hundreds of thousands of supporters in return.

It all started on Saturday when a Twitter user, who goes by Billy, took to his social media to post a photo of his dad inside of his new Missouri City, Texas, shop to share that nobody had shown up to buy some sweet treats. But less than a day and more than 270,000 retweets later, the store’s fresh inventory was sold out.

That’s right: I’m using a story about a viral tweet that caused a doughnut shop owner to sell out to defend American exceptionalism.

Because a story like this is exactly what makes our nation great. Here is a family who has opened a business, and because of the kind-hearted sympathy of hundreds of thousands of Twitter users who voluntarily took the time to share the post and promote the business, the shop earned a lot more money and dozens of happy customers walked away with fresh doughnuts.

No one forced anyone to support this man’s business. No one’s rights were trampled on. No one was guilted. No one was demonized. No one lost anything.

Decent people who love and support hard-working, small business owners used the oldest, most reliable marketing method in the book to help this man get some business and it worked beautifully, and everybody walked away happy.

Capitalism and liberty are beautiful things!

Investigation Into Origin Of FBI Russia Probe Expanding Based on ‘New Evidence’

Published

on

U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation into the FBI’s Russia probe has reportedly uncovered “new evidence” that is leading to an expansion of efforts to look into the matter. The evidence was apparently unearthed during a trip Durham took with Attorney General William Barr to Italy. Here are more details from TheBlaze: Sources told Fox News that Durham is now “very interested” in talking to former CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, two of President Donald Trump’s most vocal critics who served in the Obama administration. Barr and Durham traveled to Italy on extremely short notice, according to the Daily Beast. Once at the U.S. Embassy in Rome, Barr requested “a conference room to meet high-level Italian security agents where he could be sure no one was listening in.” Inside that conference room, Barr and Durham reportedly listened a taped deposition from Joseph Mifsud, an Italian Ministry of Justice source told the Daily Beast. Mifsud is the professor who allegedly told Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos that he had “dirt” on Hillary Clinton. The reason this is so significant is because Papadopoulos spoke with Fox News where he suggested that Mifsud contacted him “as part of a setup orchestrated by intelligence agencies.” “So clearly, there was some sort of global or at least European radar on me while I was living in London and as soon as I was joining the Trump campaign — which not even the media knew at the time — I’m being introduced to Joseph Mifsud, in Rome, at a school that trains the CIA and the FBI. So, why I was introduced to Joseph Mifsud, and why this company introduced me to Joseph Mifsud, now that we know they’re connected to MI6 and the FBI, makes things even more suspicious…

New Survey Finds One-Third Of American Jews Hid Religion For Fear Of Anti-Semitism

Published

on

A new survey has discovered that one-third of American Jews have found ways to hide their religion — not wearing clothing or items that would identify them as Jewish — out of fear they would be victims of anti-Semitism. Check out the details from The Washington Examiner: In addition to finding that many fear the consequences of openly showing Jewish identity, the survey found almost 90% of respondents believe anti-Semitism is a problem in America, with over 80% saying it has increased in the past five years. The survey, released Wednesday and conducted by the American Jewish Committee, an advocacy group for Jews in the United States, found that worries about anti-Semitism’s rise in recent years was consistently high among all Jewish denominations, including the ultra-Orthodox, modern Orthodox, Conservative, and Reform. Twenty-five percent of Americans Jews said they sometimes “avoid certain places, events, or situations” out of safety concerns, and over 30% said they have refrained from “wearing, carrying, or displaying things that might help people identify them as Jews.” And while one-third said Jewish institutions with which they are affiliated have suffered anti-Semitic attacks or threats, few victims of anti-Semitic incidents report them to the police. As for ascribing blame, American Jews say the Republican Party is more responsible than the Democratic Party for the current state of anti-Semitism in the U.S., and over 70% disapproved of President Trump’s handling of anti-Semitism. Over 80% of respondents said the extreme political Right and, separately, extremism in the name of Islam threaten American Jews, while 64% said the same of the extreme political Left. Another interesting finding from the survey is that American Jews are also more inclined to see negative remarks or actions against Israel as being anti-Semitic. A whopping 84 percent believed the statement “Israel has no right to…
