Conservative Values Reign Supreme in Teenage Restaurant Choices

Our nation’s youth are turning to the right, and that means bad news for places like Starbucks.

Chick Fil A

When we look at our nation as a whole, there is a political trend developing that cannot be ignored.

That trend is something that the mainstream media is railing against, and likely ignoring altogether.  In fact, it runs so counter to their values that they simply wish that it weren’t true.

Of course, I’m speaking about the Great Conservative Awakening in America, in which we roundly rejected the idea of another career politician in the White House back in 2016.  It’s the same revolution that brought us the #MeToo movement against the liberal sex abuse epidemic that seemed to be pervasive in left-leaning Hollywood and the halls of Congress.  Remember, conservatives are the ones pushing for Constitutional equality, while the left instead promotes the idea of “creating equality” through taxation and government intervention.

Now, one of the hardest demographics for the conservative awakening to crack is beginning to give way:  Young people.

According to polls, our nation’s youth are no longer flocking to liberal businesses such as Starbucks after school, and increasingly opting for hangouts in establishments with a much more even-keeled temperament and an undeniable conservative slant.

Don’t worry, Starbucks. Teens will still need someplace to hang on Sundays, at least.

According to Piper Jaffray’s semi-annual “Taking Stock With Teens” survey, teenagers from homes with an average income of of $68,000 prefer Chick-fil-A to Starbucks for the first time since 2011.

The study found that 12 percent of such teens preferred Chick-fil-A compared to the 10 percent who still preferred Starbucks.

McDonald’s came in third (7 percent) while Chipotle, Taco Bell and Olive Garden tied for fourth (4 percent each).

The study surveyed 8,600 teens living in homes with average household incomes of $68,000.

Among teens from more wealthy homes, Chick-fil-A retained the top spot after beating out Starbucks in the survey’s last edition in April, Business Insider reported. Chipotle, McDonald’s and Dunkin’ took third, fourth and fifth places in the upper-income category, respectively.

Chick Fil A is often portrayed in leftist media as a gathering place for dolt-like religious southerners and hillbillies, all thanks to the unrelated political contributions of former executives.

POTUS and George Conway Trade NASTY Narratives Online

Conway’s insinuation of Trump’s mental condition set the President off.

George Conway

After President Trump’s extended Tweet storm this past weekend, it comes as no surprise that there would be some residual precipitation throughout the week. The Commander in Chief, who is an avid and proficient Twitter user, has been using the platform to circumvent the mainstream media as of late.  The reason being is simple; the MSM is slanted and biased in ways that our nation would never have imagined possible. Of course, due to the freedom of the internet, (or what’s left of it anyway), there are plenty of characters who spend their days attempting to garner the attention of the President via the Twitter platform.  Often these short and biting pieces of drivel sail right past ol’ 45. Not today, however. Kellyanne Conway’s husband George is ‘a total loser,’ Preisdent Donald Trump claimed on Tuesday, less than 24 hours after the Washington lawyer blasted him on Twitter as mentally ill. And the president’s 2020 campaign manager, Brad Parscale, claimed ‘Mr. Kellyanne Conway’ is ‘jealous’ of his more-famous wife’s success after being bounced from a low-prestige job at the U.S. Department of Justice. ‘He barely worked @TheJusticeDept and was either fired/quit, didn’t want the scrutiny? Now he hurts his wife because he is jealous of her success. POTUS doesn’t even know him!’ Parscale tweeted Monday night. George Conway and President Trump have feuded quite publicly in the past as well, but this latest spat seems to have arrived with a newfound intensity, thanks in no small part to the President’s increasingly combative behavior. But can we really blame Trump for this shift in attitude?  Given what passes for “news” these days, we’re not so sure.

O’Rourke Accused of Wrongly Appropriating “Beto” by Latino Journalist

Looks like “Beto” may have to go back to “Robert Francis” for the time being…

Beto O'Rourke

The mainstream media has been tiptoeing around Robert Francis O’Rourke’s name for some time now, but it seems that the jig is up. “Beto” is what O’Rourke refers to himself as, and there is an extremely specific reason why.  As a politician living in El Paso, Texas, the Latino demographic is of the utmost importance for the democratic presidential candidate. “Beto” is a Mexican nickname, short for “Roberto” and O’Rourke has certainly used this to his advantage in politics. Now, a prominent Latino journalist is bashing “Beto” for the appropriation of the nickname, comparing the move to “stolen valor”. In fact, in a USA Today column, Ruben Navarrette said that the “Beto backlash” among Latinos reminds him “of the idea of stolen valor, the righteous outrage felt by combat veterans when others who didn’t see action claim medals they don’t deserve.” Navarrette said that numerous Latinos “— unlike the media, which is run by white liberals who are fascinated by other white liberals — refuse to go loco for Beto” because O’Rourke has not been with the community when it mattered on issues like immigration. Navarrette continued… “For instance, at a time when Latinos feel under siege by ethnocentrism and anti-immigrant demagoguery, where was O’Rourke on the explosive immigration issue during his three terms in the House of Representatives?” Navarrette asked. And this wasn’t the first time that the journalist went after Robert Francis O’Rourke, either. In a previous column last month addressing “cultural appropriation,” Navarrette noted that though O’Rourke, whom he dubbed “the Hamlet of West Texas,” has likely “never gone out and told a group of Mexican-Americans that he was a member of the tribe,” it seems like “he doesn’t mind if some Latinos jump to that conclusion and vote for him because of some misplaced sense of ethnic…
