Sarah Huckabee Sanders is All Class As She Faces Public Discrimination…Here’s What Happened

Published

on

Sarah Huckabee Sanders has quickly become one of the best-loved members of the Trump administration for her relentless tenacity and press as she faces the shark tank of unfriendly reporters in the White House briefing room each week.

While she’s definitely been known to get a few zingers in when reporters like Jim Acosta and April Ryan push her a little too hard, but she still never stoops to their level, and always remains polite and courteous in the way she conducts her briefings.

So it was no surprise that when she and her family were recently asked to leave a Washington DC area restaurant, she politely complied and took to Twitter to explain that, no matter how she is treated, she always does her best to treat others with respect.

“Last night I was told by the owner of Red Hen in Lexington, VA to leave because I work for @POTUS and I politely left,” she wrote. “Her actions say far more about her than about me. I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so.”

The co-owner of the Virginia restaurant Red Hen, Stephanie Wilkinson, who was the one to ask Sanders to leave, explained her side of the story to the Washington Post this week.

“I’m not a huge fan of confrontation,” she said. “I have a business, and I want the business to thrive.”

“This feels like the moment in our democracy when people have to make uncomfortable actions and decisions to uphold their morals,” she continued, describing the actions of the Trump White House as “inhumane and unethical,” and that, if placed in the same situation, she “would have done the same thing again.”

Wouldn’t it be great if all Americans had the right to do what Wilkinson did? From the bleeding-heart liberal restaurant owner to the Christian baker or photographer. I personally think we should celebrate Wilkinson’s personal liberty–and continue to fight for the liberty of all Americans.

Amazon Rolls Out Creepy ‘Pay By Palm’ Hardware at Whole Foods

Is this one of the harbingers of a cashless society?

Published

Throughout much of modern history, Americans and their cash were two separate things.  One was a human being, breathing and walking about, earning money.  The money was an inanimate commodity of varying value that we used to keep the organism alive, fat, and happy. But in the future, it seems as though we may find ourselves intrinsically, and anatomically indistinguishable from our bank account.  In fact, it appears as though Amazon is banking on it. Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) said it is rolling out biometric technology at its Whole Foods stores around Seattle starting on Wednesday, letting shoppers pay for items with a scan of their palm. The move shows how Amazon is bringing some of the technology already in use at its namesake brick-and-mortar Go and Books stores to the grocery chain it acquired in 2017. The system, called Amazon One, lets customers associate a credit card with their palm print. It offers a contact-less alternative to cash and card payments, Amazon said. Of course, the move is being regarded as a terrifying leap into Orwellian territory by privacy experts, as it appears to push us ever closer to a cashless society where hackers and power failures could doom us all to poverty in the blink of an eye.

Fraternal Order of Police Responds to LeBron James’ Tweet Fiasco

And they were NOT happy.

The politicization of American sports has been ongoing for some time, perhaps decades, but the most recent acceleration of this melding has come thanks to the power of social media and the blurring of the line between celebrity and athlete. At the forefront of this movement has been the NBA, and, more specifically, superstar LeBron James. This week, James came under fire for a tweet in which he referenced the Derek Chauvin trial’s guilty verdicts, with a photo of another officer who was involved in the shooting of a young black girl and text stating “you’re next”. The tweet was seen as a threat by many, including the Fraternal Order of Police who responded harshly. On Wednesday, James tweeted a photo of the officer involved in the shooting with a caption reading “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.” The tweet has since been deleted. James was reacting to the deadly police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant. Hours later, the National Fraternal Order of Police tweeted a photo of James’ original tweet, saying: “[email protected], with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless. The officer saved a young girl’s life. No amount of gaslighting will change that fact.” James attempted to walk back the tweet after deleting it, by issuing an explanation that garnered only a lukewarm response online.
