Camping World CEO Refuses To Remove Gigantic American Flag, Says He’d Rather ‘Go To Jail’ Than Take It Down

This is what a patriot looks like.

Marcus Lemonis, CEO of Camping World, recently stated that he’d rather be tossed behind bars than to remove the enormous American flag that flies high and proud outside of his RV store in North Carolina.

Back in May, Lemonis said he would not be taking the 40-foot by 80-foot banner, despite the lawsuit filed by Statesville, North Carolina, and accumulating a rather hefty amount of fines for flying the flag.

During a Monday interview with Fox News’ Martha MacCallum, Lemonis insisted that he would not be pulling down the flag anytime soon.

“The ordinance doesn’t matter to me,” he told MacCallum. “If you look at the North Carolina statute, it says as long as it’s not impairing someone’s health and well-being, it’s not a big deal.”

Lemonis also revealed that local lawmakers told him that the flag could be dangerous because of its size and its close proximity to the interstate.

“They made the claim it could cause an accident on the freeway because it was too distracting — it was too beautiful,” he added.

“There’s no question that I violated that ordinance,” he admitted. “When veterans show up at the stores for the flag-raisings, and when they come on Saturdays and do their veteran rides, they will weep at the bottom of the flagpole. That’s the conviction that I need to say it’s just not going to come down.”

“I would rather to go jail,” Lemonis declared. “The city of Statesville filed a lawsuit about two months ago. If I don’t take it down, I will be in violation of the court order.”

Lemonis is absolutely right. This is about more than just being a rebellious citizen. It’s about the right a man has to fly the flag of the country he’s proud of without the government stepping in and ordering him around.

People need to take responsibility for themselves and learn how to drive safely and ignore things they may see on the side of the road. How many billboards are posted along roads that are well done and could be considered distracting?

Yet, strangely, these billboards are still up. Maybe it’s because folks stand to make a substantial amount of money from advertising by allowing these banners to stay up.

This is government trying to play nanny again. Good on Lemonis for standing up for what he believes in and refusing to allow big government intrusion to ruin his patriotism.

Democrats Are Preparing Legislation To Limit SCOTUS Justice Tenure

Published

on

House Democrats are in the process of introducing a piece of legislation next week designed to limit the tenure of U.S. Supreme Court justices, desiring to get rid of lifetime appointments — which is something outlined in the Constitution — to a single term of 18 years. The bill comes hot on the heels of the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg who passed away on September 18, leaving yet another vacancy for President Trump to fill. The left is obviously terrified of having a conservative majority on the bench for decades to come so they are willing to shoot themselves in the foot and try to circumvent the Constitution, all so they can ensure things like abortion continue to be legal in this country. They have to continue their assault against the family unit because it stands in their way of having ultimate power and authority. Thus, it’s critical for them to control the courts. via Daily Wire: Reuters reported on the forthcoming bill, Thursday: The new bill, seen by Reuters, would allow every president to nominate two justices per four-year term and comes amid heightened political tensions as Republican President Donald Trump prepares to announce his third pick for the Supreme Court after the death on Sept. 18 of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, with just 40 days to go until the Nov. 3 election. According to Democratic Rep. Ro Khanna (CA), the bill — the “Supreme Court Term Limits and Regular Appointments Act” — is intended to tamp down partisanship. “It would save the country a lot of agony and help lower the temperature over fights for the court that go to the fault lines of cultural issues and is one of the primary things tearing at our social fabric,” said Khanna. The bill is due to be…

Former Member Of Mueller Team Says Flynn Prosecution Had ‘Get Trump’ Attitude

Published

on

One thing that’s become abundantly clear over this past year is that the Deep State is not a conspiracy theory, but an actual group of individuals inside the government working to undermine President Trump and his agenda for America at every possible turn. FBI official William Barnett, who was assigned to lead the bureau’s original investigation into former national security adviser General Michael Flynn, has come out and stated that Robert Mueller’s team had a “get Trump” attitude and made it clear he had no desire to pursue the whole Russia collusion investigation because he said it was “not there” and a “dead end.” via Fox News: FBI agent William J. Barnett made the comments during an interview on Sept. 17 at the Justice Department, before Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri Jeffrey Jensen, who was tapped by Attorney General Bill Barr to review the case against Flynn. Jensen has joined U.S. Attorney John Durham’s team in his review of the origins of the Trump-Russia probe. Those comments have surfaced in new government documents. Barnett, during his interview, detailed his work at the FBI, and his assignment to the bureau’s original cases against Flynn and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. Barnett said the Flynn investigation was assigned the code name “Crossfire Razor,” which was part of the Crossfire Hurricane investigation — the bureau’s code name for the original Trump-Russia probe. Barnett told investigators that he thought the FBI’s Trump-Russia probe was “opaque” and “with little detail concerning specific evidence of criminal events.” “Barnett thought the case theory was ‘supposition on supposition,’” the 302 stated, and added that the “predication” of the Flynn investigation was “not great,” and that it “was not clear” what the “persons opening the case wanted to ‘look for or at.’” After six…
