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.

Justice Department Hints at Trouble for States Engaging in Election Audits

They don’t want other locales getting any ideas from Maricopa County

Published

In Arizona, an ongoing and auxiliary “audit” of the 2020 election results has kept proponents of the “Stop The Steal” movement on the edge of their seats. These folks believe that there were major, fraudulent issues with the electoral system itself, and they believe that a reexamination of the processes and networks involved in counting the vote will provide enough evidence to force Congress to act. Some may even have found themselves wondering if an end to the audit might come just days ahead of Mike Lindell’s “reinstatement day” prediction of August 13th – providing a bit of confluence to some of their theories about the future of Donald Trump’s political career. The Justice Department, on the other hand, isn’t too thrilled about the idea of these audits spreading to other states, and they’re flexing a little of their electoral power to keep other locales from getting any ideas. The Justice Department on Wednesday issued another warning aimed at states conducting or considering audits of ballots tallied in last year’s election, reminding election authorities that allowing ballots to be mishandled can violate federal law. While the Biden administration “guidance” document carries no formal legal weight and may not strike fear into local officials, the Justice Department used the release of the legal analysis to press their campaign of saber-rattling against Republican-led audits of the 2020 vote in Arizona and other states, as well as voting changes many GOP-controlled states are pursuing as part of purported anti-fraud efforts. Then came the mobster-esque verbiage. “Jurisdictions have to be careful not to let those ballots be defaced or mutilated or lost or destroyed as part of an audit,” said a Justice Department official who briefed reporters on condition of anonymity. “This document puts down a marker that says the Justice Department is concerned…

DOJ Gives Jan 6th Committee Green Light to Call Trump Officials as Witnesses

But there’s a good chance that this will backfire spectacularly.

Published

The Democrats steering the select committee investigating January 6th have a very tight line to keep their toes on. On one hand, they know that they aren’t going to get another chance at this investigation, particularly as the GOP continues to downplay the impact of the event itself.  But they also mustn’t sway the hearing too far to the left either, lest they wish to be accused of partisan hackery. One of the simplest ways for the investigation to get a bad rap among conservatives would be to spend a great deal of time on subjects that were already covered in Donald Trump second impeachment trial, in which he was acquitted of “inciting” the insurrection of that fateful day. But this could prove difficult for the overzealous among them, especially after the DOJ has now dangled one hellacious carrot in front of them. Former Trump administration officials can testify to Congress about Donald Trump’s role in the deadly January attack on the Capitol and his efforts to subvert the results of the 2020 election, the justice department (DoJ) has said in a letter obtained by the Guardian. The move by the justice department to decline to assert executive privilege for Trump’s acting attorney general, Jeffrey Rosen, clears the path for other top former officials to also testify to congressional committees investigating the Capitol attack without fear of repercussions. The justice department authorised witnesses to appear specifically before the two committees. But a DoJ official, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive matters, said they expected that approval to extend to the 6 January select committee that began proceedings on Tuesday. And while the Justice Department may think that they are doing the Democrats a favor here, it is somewhat likely that this new avenue of pursuit will take…
