Starbucks Put through the Grinder (Open Thread)

On Tuesday, the CEO of Starbucks, Howard Schultz, published an open letter attempting to explain his company’s latest approach to the “open carry” issue.  The company finds itself in an awkward position.  Pro-open-carry individuals have staged “Starbucks Appreciation Days” at some Starbucks locations.  During these events, participants openly carried their guns.  In response, anti-gun activists have staged anti-open-carry events and put pressure on Starbucks, seeking to have the company ban guns from their stores.  These competing events have positioned the company in the middle of a political firestorm.  Thus, Schultz’s letter, in which he states the company’s newest approach.  Continue reading

The Usurper’s  face and voice will blanket the TV networks on Tuesday evening for “his” propagadized take on the State of the Union.   We don’t need any more of his lies to tell us how our country is coming out of the economic recession – a recession that he and his administration have prolonged because of their failed Keynesian economic policies.  FIVE Years is the telling of how he has done.

Bill of Rights - Copy

As we saw after the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords, the progressive left can very quickly ramp up their propaganda machine–they’re ready, willing, and able to politicize the tragic murder of innocents in Newtown, ConnecticutContinue reading

U.N. Stealth Treaty to Gut Our Second Amendment? (Open Thread)

If Operation Fast and Furious (OFF) has taught us anything, it’s that the progressives in this country (especially Barack Hussein Obama II, Hillary Clinton, and Eric Holder) will go to great lengths to invent “facts” to use to continue to chip away at our Second Amendment rights.  Many have credibly argued that OFF was designed not to stop guns from flowing across the border to Mexican drug cartels, but rather to inflate the numbers and “prove” by lying statistics that over 90% of the guns recovered in Mexico were trafficked illegally from the United States.  The goal was to gin up an astroturfed groundswell of bogus public opinion in favor of more government control over guns.  Continue reading

Obama and Joyce Foundation Pay to Influence the Supreme Ct.

© Bridgette  WTPOTUS 2010

The Joyce Foundation, in collusion with Obama and other Joyce Foundation Board members, used their corrupt ways to take advantage of unsuspecting people, including law students and money starved universities. This eye-opening article, “Joyce Foundation, Obama, and Heller v. D.C” tells how the Joyce Foundation tried to influence Supreme Court Second Amendment “Right to Bear Arms” cases and, in particular, the “District of Columbia vs Heller” case, and gives us a way of looking at how other democratic organizations operate and how far they go to “persuade,” and control outcomes. The fact that the Joyce Foundation bought and paid law students to do their bidding is criminal. This is another version of “pay-to-play” the Chicago way, and these people are pros. Continue reading
