Cali Bar Shooting Survivor Was at Vegas Concert Massacre

And that’s not where the similarities end.

Mass Shooting

America, for all of its majestic expanse, can be an extremely cozy nation in which to make a life.

We have our major hubs of culture, whose attitudes seem to emanate outward like the cultural fallout of some well executed media atomic weapon.  The closer to Manhattan you get, the more terse and perturbed one seems to be.  As we move west, toward the laid back surf bros of California, we see the attitudes softening.  Perhaps the perpetual purple pot cloud over Colorado is one of the best metaphors for the situation.

In any case, we can look around the nation for the signs of these cultural hubs in one another’s attitude and personality, and we can get a fairly good idea about who it is that we’re dealing with.

Trending: Trump Gives HILARIOUS Response When Asked About Socialist Ocasio-Cortez (Watch)

Call it “profiling” if you want.  I prefer to consider it a study of the cultural spider web.

So when a young man survived the targeting of two separate country music-themed events by armed madmen, we can’t help but ask if there is a pattern?

Brendan Kelly said he is a regular at Borderline Bar and Grill, frequenting the venue two or three times a week. Kelly was there when shots rang out Wednesday night around 11:20 p.m.

By the time the shots stopped, 12 people were dead, including the shooter. A Ventura County sheriff’s sergeant who responded to the shooting died later at a hospital after being shot multiple times.

But here’s where it gets strange.

“It’s too close to home,” Kelly said. “Borderline was our safe space after, for lack of a better term, it was our our home for the probably 30 or 45 of us who are all from the greater Ventura County area who were in Vegas. That was our place where we went to the following week, three nights in a row just so we could be with each other.”

In the minutes after his narrow escape, Kelly made the call to his family members that he hoped he would never again have to make after Las Vegas. He could still hear gunshots in the background.

The Borderline Bar was hosting a country music themed night when the gunfire began.

The concert that Kelly survived in Las Vegas was that of Jason Aldean – one of the nation’s most iconic country singers.

Clemson’s Winning QB, Trevor Lawrence, LOVED President Donald Trump’s Fast Food Feast

“Lots of hamburgers, lots of pizza. We have some very large people that like eating, so I think we’re going to have a little fun.”

White House

Clemson Tigers winning quarterback, Trevor Lawrence, said he absolutely loved President Donald Trump’s fast food feast during the team’s White House visit.

With elitist members of the Washington establishment, the media, and the odd never Trumper’s attacking the fast food meal that President Donald Trump provided out of his own pocket for the Clemson Tigers, at least one member of the team at the center of the controversy says he didn’t mind the meal at all.

The liberal media went wild attacking President Donald Trump for serving fast food to the Clemson Tigers, college football’s 2018 champions, when they visited the White House on Monday.

The left-wing media attacked the president for his “un-presidential” meal. But the president responded with a tweet celebrating the day’s events.

“Great being with the National Champion Clemson Tigers last night at the White House,” Trump tweeted on Tuesday. “Because of the Shutdown, I served them massive amounts of Fast Food (I paid), over 1000 hamberders [sic] etc. Within one hour, it was all gone. Great guys and big eaters!”

With the shutdown still in full swing, White House staff is at a minimum, and it appears that the food service personnel are also on furlough. Trump paid for the entire feast out of his own pocket.

Trump also said that he thought the team would enjoy a little “fun” time during their White House visit.

“We ordered American fast food, paid for by me,” the president said, according to CBS. “Lots of hamburgers, lots of pizza. We have some very large people that like eating, so I think we’re going to have a little fun.”

Of course, Clemson has become somewhat famous for its fast food connection with breakout quarterback Trevor Lawrence being a huge fan of Chick-fil-A.

For years Lawrence has prepared to meet his opponents by studying game films while eating Chick-fil-A. He has kept that up at college, too. “In Clemson, they say he does the same, poring over Notre Dame and Alabama defensive cut-ups while snacking on Chick-n-Minis,” ESPN’s Ryan McGee reported.

Indeed, after the big White House visit, Lawrence said he loved the whole thing and said he can’t wait to come back.

“It was awesome,” Lawrence said according to TMZ. “We had McDonalds and everything. It was good!”

TMZ’s cameras caught up to Lawrence after the visit:

Even as the elitists are attacking Clemson and Trump, the players did not mind it at all.

Tim Allen Beats Liberal Establishment, Ratings Soar for ‘Last Man Standing’

Fox execs are now reaping the rewards and dancing on ABC’s grave.

Tim Allen

Tim Allen’s sitcom, Last Man Standing, was canceled by the liberals at ABC even though it was a ratings leader on the network. But now that Fox has picked the show up, Allen is having the last laugh as his show becomes one of Fox’s ratings leaders.

ABC cancelled Last Man Standing after its sixth season, even though it was still among ABC’s top rated shows. There was only one reason for its cancelation. It wasn’t because the show was failing. It was because ABC executives hated the fact that Allen’s show often featured conservative subject matter.

But only a few months after it was unceremoniously dumped by ABC, Fox TV picked the show up for a seventh season.

Now, much to ABC’s dismay, Last Man Standing has become a new ratings leader for Fox.

According to CinemaBlend, LMS has proven Fox executives right for having taken on the show.

What’s especially exciting is that Last Man Standing has only increased in its dominance since returning at midseason to a 1.0 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 5.66 million viewers. During the January 11 airing, the show actually did a 1.2 rating and increased to 6.21 million total viewers, per TV By The Numbers.

If you look back over Season 7, that’s the highest the show has done in total viewers since the November 9 episode, which brought in 6.3 million total viewers. But forget total viewers, because in total viewers Last Man Standing often loses to its CBS competitors like Blue Bloods and MacGyver. Where Last Man Standing really shines is the coveted advertising demographic, and that’s where Fox should be clapping backs–all the way to the bank.

In one of the seres’ most recent episodes earned the highest ratings of any network TV show on Friday.

“This Friday, Last Man Standing pulled a 1.2 rating, which just so happens to be a number that is a whole lot higher than everything else network TV aired on Friday night,” CB reported. “It’s closest competitors were Fox’s own The Cool Kids, with a 1.0 rating, and CBS’ Hawaii Five-0, with a .9 rating.”

Fox execs are now reaping the rewards and dancing on ABC’s grave.

The show had a few cast changes with the move to Fox. The part of Allen’s grandson, Boyd is now being played by Jet Jurgensmeyer. Allen’s number two daughter, Mandy, is now being played by Molly McCook . And Tisha Campbell took over the role of Carol Larabee. But the rest of the cast stayed on.

In any case, the show is still a hit and has maintained its audience despite ABC’s attempt to destroy it because it is a conservative show.
