Restauranteur Receives Death Threats Over GOP Event

This is a new low…even for the unhinged mob on the left.

One of the most bizarre talking points of the mainstream media over the course of the last few months has been their insistence that the left is not “unhinged” or an angry “mob”.

Turn on any of the 24-hour pontification platforms and you’re sure to hear the same old, tired line:  “They’re not a mob, they’re just protesting and exercising their First Amendment rights”.

Sure…tell that to the folks who had to repair the campus of UC Berkeley after the left attempted to quarantine the right to free speech in February of 2017.  Or you can look to just last week, when an militant Antifa posse instigated a brawl with a group called the “Proud Boys” in New York City that has led to several arrests.

And do we really need to bring up the reality of James T. Hodgkinson, the GOP baseball practice shooter?

The left is unhinged, at least in these examples, and I highly doubt that you’ll find left-leaning commentators who’ll defend men like Hodgkinson as “exercising his First Amendment rights”.

A restauranteur in Tennessee has recalled his harrowing tale of liberal lunacy to radio host Todd Starnes this week, and his experience is one that we wouldn’t wish on our most wicked of enemies.

Tom Courtney, owner of Courtney’s Restaurant, told the Todd Starnes Radio Show the entire staff has been subjected to an avalanche of hate from a far-left mob.

“I can’t begin to tell you how awful it was,” Courtney said on the nationally-syndicated radio program. “They called me a racist, bigot, called me an ‘MF’ plenty of times and (one guy) told me to watch my back.”

Courtney was infuriated because the leftists even went after a 17-year-old who works at the meat-and-three.

“I had a cashier crying as she was answering the phone,” he said. ”

“If you are threatening a 17-year-old minor and threatening people to watch your back – when does it stop being freedom of speech and become a threat,” Courtney wondered.

The controversy started after he posted photos of Blackburn serving food and greeting people at a campaign breakfast. Courtney said a number of groups take advantage of their banquet facilities.

Courtney’s rationalization was cogent and impossible to argue with.

“I’m a restaurant owner. I’m here to make money. I feed people. That’s what I do,” he said.

And the restaurant made good money from the Blackburn event and he said the staff made “great money in tips.”

Folks, let me put it to you straight:  When we have to choose where to eat based on whether or not they cooked food for a specific public servant, something is horribly wrong with the political climate in our country.

Joe Biden a Victim of Democrat-Style Elder Abuse

Outside of the U.S., particularly in Russia, China, and Iran, Biden’s accelerating dementia is more than obvious.

“Democrats’ uncompromising lust for power and residual rage from their 2016 election loss is on full display through the cruel and immoral exploitation of President Joe Biden.” At the rate Joe Biden is declining, as evidenced by his recent spate of monumental gaffes on CNN and other video footage, along with his daily rambles, mumbles, non-sequiturs, and outright psychobabble, it’s anyone guess as to how much longer his handlers, his wife and family, and the sycophantic press can continue to provide cover for him.  Outside of the U.S., particularly in Russia, China, and Iran, Biden’s accelerating dementia is more than obvious. Even nine-year olds know. Wait, you say! Each day for a couple of hours, he gets to play ‘president of the USA.’ How can that be elder abuse?  Causing Harm to An Elderly Adult “Elder abuse is an intentional act or failure to act that causes or creates a risk of harm to an older adult,” based on guidelines from U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). “An older adult is someone age 60 or older. The abuse often occurs at the hands of a care giver or a person the elder trusts.” Are you listening Jill Biden? “Victims often have to decide whether to tell someone they are being hurt or continue being abused by someone they depend upon or care for deeply,” the CDC states. “Elder abuse is common. Abuse, including neglect and exploitation, are experienced by about 1 in 10 people aged 60 and older who live at home.” Home can include the White House. What are the harmful effects of elder abuse? The National Council on Aging reports that elders who have been abused have a 300% higher risk of death when compared to those who have not been mistreated.  To Exploit and Rule…

Pelosi, Capitol Police Now Bickering Over ‘Orders’ to ‘Arrest’ the Mask-less

This is getting embarrassing for Nancy…

Published

Thankfully, the latest COVID-19 stunt by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi only took a few hours to unravel this time around. Pelosi, who has been pushing the GOP’s buttons on mask mandates for months now, used the CDC’s recent guidance adjustment to bring the facial coverings back to the House floor.  This prompted protests from a great many Republicans, and Pelosi subsequently threatened to have the Capitol Police start arresting folks who wouldn’t comply. The Capitol Police were not exactly on board with that idea. https://twitter.com/CapitolPolice/status/1420810728387264517?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1420810728387264517%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.foxnews.com%2Fpolitics%2Fcapitol-police-ordered-arrest-staff-visitors-not-wearing-masks A response from the speaker followed. Pelosi’s office said she did not order police to begin arresting people because it’s not within her power. “The speaker of the House does not control the U.S. Capitol Police,” Pelosi spokesperson Drew Hammill told Fox News.  “We were unaware of the memo until it was reported in the press.” The embarrassing incident comes amid a flurry of criticisms of Pelosi’s handling of the Congressional mask policy, and likely marks yet another milestone in the decline of Nancy Pelosi’s speakership.
