Man Who Destroyed Trump’s Walk of Fame Star Learns His Fate

Seems he got off easy.

Published

on

A California man who decided to express his hatred for President Trump by taking a pickaxe to his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame has decided to take a plea deal earlier this week.

Austin Clay, 24, appeared in Los Angeles County Superior Court and pleaded “no contest” to one felony count of vandalism causing more than $400 in damage. The deal he agreed to carries a sentence of one day in prison (which he apparently already served), 20 days community labor, and three years of probation.

But that’s not all. He’s also being required to pay $9,404.46 in restitution to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce for damages and he must also attend “psychological counseling.”

According to the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office, Clay could have faced a maximum three years in jail if convicted at trial. He is not the first to vandalize Trump’s star in Los Angeles. James Otis, 54, took a pickaxe and sledgehammer to the star in 2016, and was reportedly sentenced to three years probation. He was also ordered to pay “$3,700 to the Hollywood Historic Trust and $700 to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.”

The real issue here isn’t that Clay doesn’t support President Trump. This is America. We’re allowed to hold personal opinions about the leadership in charge of running the country. We’re also allowed, thanks to the Constitution, to express those opinions in a public forum without concern of being silenced by the federal government.

However, there’s a right way to express your thoughts and beliefs, and there’s a wrong way. Clay chose the wrong way. This sort of unhinged anger has become a defining characteristic of the modern liberal movement, which doesn’t do much for winning folks over to the cause.

We in America — and this includes Republicans — need to stop being so vicious toward each other. We need to seek to find common ground with one another, to remember that we’re all image bearers of God, and as such, we need to treat each other with respect and dignity, even if we passionately disagree with each other’s political and ideological positions.

There are many important matters to discuss in our country right now. However, if we don’t learn the art of civil debate and discourse, this nation won’t survive. Here’s to hoping we all find a way to discuss these matters in a civilized way.

Bernie Sanders Proposes Universal Child Care That Costs $1.5 Trillion To Be Financed By ‘Tax On Extreme Wealth’

Published

on

Sen. Bernie Sanders, a proud socialist running for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination take on President Trump this year for the White House, has just unveiled a new plan to guarantee child care through age three, as well as universal free prekindergarten education, and the cost for this program is absolutely mind blowing. The plan would cost — get ready for this — a whopping $1.5 trillion, yes “trillion,” and would be funded by a tax on the “extreme wealth” of the country, whatever that means. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: The Democratic presidential candidate said that the proposal would “substantially reduce the massive level of wealth inequality in America, create new and good jobs, enable parents to more easily balance the demands of work and home, and give our children the best chance at leading healthy, happy lives.” The Vermont senator would pay for the proposal through his wealth tax on those with over $32 million in net worth. His campaign has said that this tax would raise approximately $4.35 trillion over 10 years. Sanders’s campaign says the proposal will improve job flexibility for parents, improve childhood development, and increase wages and training for child care workers. Other top Democratic candidates, such as Sen. Elizabeth Warren and former mayors Pete Buttigieg and Mike Bloomberg, have also put forward their own child care plans, but Sanders’s is the broadest and most expensive. If you were on the fence about whether or not Bernie Sanders was a legitimate socialist, this massive big government program and subsequent tax designed to redistribute wealth should remove all doubt. A program of this magnitude would decimate our economy, and this isn’t even including all the other insane things that Sanders wants to implement. His policies would utterly destroy our country, which is why we…

President Trump announced that India has reached a $3 billion defense deal with the United States, which includes the country purchasing several military-grade helicopters. Trump delivered a speech on Monday alongside Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the Sardar Patel Stadium, which is the largest cricket stadium in the country, capable of housing more than 100,000 people. During his talk, Trump confirmed that the U.S. had approved the purchase of several military helicopters from America as part of the larger defense deal between the two countries. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “The United States looks forward to providing India with the best and most-feared military equipment on the planet. We make the greatest weapons ever made — airplanes, missiles, rockets, ships. We make the best, and we are dealing now with India,” the president said. He continued, “I am pleased to announce that tomorrow our representatives will sign deals to sell over $3 billion in the absolute finest, state-of-the-art military helicopters and other equipment to the Indian armed forces.” Trump, who held a rally with Modi in Texas in September, described the friendship between the two nations as being strong. He called Modi a “great friend” and vowed that the U.S. and India would remain allies. https://twitter.com/narendramodi/status/1231918893964251136 Both countries were due to talk about trade during the state visit, however the president stated that no deal has been finalized at this time. He spoke with reporters saying that he felt “no rush” to complete negotiations, but added that “We are doing well with India, we are making deals.” Trump’s speech in India was accepted with warm applause from the packed out stadium. He went on to thank the crowd gathered to hear him speak for the “spectacular welcome,” saying he would never forget the “remarkable hospitality” of the Indian…
