    I don’t think it can be stressed enuf how important it was for PT to have flipped the 2nd circuit with last Thursday’s vote (NY, Connecticut, and. Vermont). And both of his last two appointees were seated that very day. It’s a major line of defense now for all the corruption set up against him.

      I wonder if there is more to this story than we know. This doesn’t sound like something Chick-fil-A would do.

      • Eric, I called chick’s customer service earlier this evening to express my disappointment. The hold time was 27 minutes and 42 secs. The woman was very nice and let me talk. She did give me a little, obvious script of how this decision was made.

        She said their call volume has been high all day.

        I don’t eat chicken. Being from the south and alligator hunting with the boys ruined me on chicken. (They use chicken for bait. It gets awfully smelly running lines) But family eats there.

        What the heck? Ignorant..Salvation Army has entirely woke LBGQT employee rules and same sex partner benefits etc….it’s cruel for Chick fil A to do this.


        • Every time the radical left attacked chick fil a, Christian Patriots turned out and gave them blocks long lines. I don’t think this will go over well.

          I suspect it has to do with protest in the UK causing the first store to close up only 1 week after opening.


    • Robert Smith says:

      Whoever gives into the left it’s a fool’s game. They hate you and always will. They want what you have and don’t care what they have to do to you to get it.

    Getting to know Bloomberg, likely to be cast as a reasonable, moderate centrist:

    On potential political/PC priorities as reflected in his business:

    “Bloomberg chairman Peter T. Grauer said in a Thursday speech that Bloomberg must think about the publication of articles based on the context of its business operation and that the publishing of articles critical of China must be reconsidered.

    “The New York Times reports: Acknowledging the vast size of the Chinese economy, the world’s second-biggest after that of the United States, Mr. Grauer, said, “We have to be there.”

    “We have about 50 journalists in the market, primarily writing stories about the local business and economic environment,” Mr. Grauer said in response to questions after a speech at the Asia Society. “You’re all aware that every once in a while we wander a little bit away from that and write stories that we probably may have kind of rethought — should have rethought.”

    “Bloomberg, the financial data and news company, relies on sales of its terminals, which are ubiquitous on bankers’ desks around the world, for about 82 percent of its $8.5 billion in revenue. But sales of those terminals in China declined after the company published an article in June 2012 on the family wealth of Xi Jinping, at that time the incoming Communist Party chief. After its publication, officials ordered state enterprises not to subscribe to the service. Mr. Grauer did not specifically mention the article about Mr. Xi or any other articles.

    “Mr. Grauer’s comments on Bloomberg’s journalistic priorities in China reflect what some Bloomberg employees say is a re-emphasis on financial news, and skepticism from the business side about whether investigative journalism is worth the potential problems it could create for terminal sales.”


    • Robert Smith says:

      So be China’s b@tch, like every other big company that goes into China?

      Like Big Tech helping google build their surveillance police state — an effective beta test for the US market…

      Wow. VDH tears apart both Max Boot and David French in that article. Highly recommended read. FTA, VDH’s final paragraph says it all. Boot and French (and Kristol and Goldberg and Charen and Will and many other phony conservative pundits) comprise the “NeverTrump Rump”:

      “At many levels, the psychological pathology of projection has characterized this entire three-year effort to remove Trump. That syndrome also applies to the NeverTrump rump that for over 1,000 days has misled and smeared in its self-righteous pursuit of supposed truth and civility.”

  8. Vindman is the last person scheduled to testify on Tuesday morning. There is no doubt in my mind if the Republican House members start to dismantle his testimony, Schiff will STOP the hearing for an early lunch break. Make book on it.

        Does everyone need to know that?

        I guess if there was an active surveillance on the coup members they can see who contacts who…


    • Jim in TN says:

      Or they will need to vote. Or like last time, why wait for Republican questions. Have a vote and wait until after lunch so that the false accusations can be unanswered in viewers minds.

    ISIS urges Muslims to masquerade as journalists to get bombs near to world leaders such as Trump
    November 18, 2019 11:00 AM by Robert Spencer

    How will they tell them from the real journalists? With their shared hatred for President Trump, these Islamic State “journalists” will fit right in with the establishment media “journalists.”

      “ISIS urges Muslims to masquerade as journalists to get bombs near to world leaders such as Trump.”

      Al Quaeda used “journalists to killd Massoud, leader of the Northern Alliance, the western-oriented faction in Afghanistan. G. W. Bush refused to meet with Massoud in D.C. and give him support. Big mistake there, GWB and CIA. Massoud returned home, and the “journalists” gave him the suicide bomb treatment soon thereafter.

  18. My email to Chick-fil-A.

    My family are frequent visitors to the Chick-fil-A in Milford, Ohio and are known on site by several of the crew members.

    I may have to end that practice.

    Selling out your values for the almighty dollar (when you were doing quite well to begin with) causes me great sorrow.

    The last wholesome place to eat out.

    It is hard to be alone in a swamp……
    and one must be very careful who ya let in the boat with ya…
    for me the coup really began in Nov. 1963….
    the evil ones will shut you out of the big club …will render you penny-less destroy your friends and family…….and if need be have you killed….
    when no one is held accountable …they have no reason to fear you.
    and cover their crimes in so many layers and laws that it will take generations to sort them out…
    one can never get Justice from an un-just system…

      There is only one thing they fear, but do we have the courage?
      The answer is not to pull the plug, but to cut off the supply.
      We do not need them.

  25. linda4298 says: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told fellow Democrats it would be “dangerous” to skip impeachment and wait for the 2020 election to determine whether President Trump should remain in office.

    “That dangerous position only adds to the urgency of our action, because the President is jeopardizing the integrity of the 2020 elections,” the California lawmaker said to fellow Democrats in a memo sent Monday.

    State Dept spokesman Morgan Ortegas, formerly of Fox, who took over for Heather Nauert, also formerly of Fox, was just on with Fox’s Martha McCallum.

    Dayummmm. KellyAnne Conway cannot hold a candle to Ortegas. Ortegas never smiled until the very end, never stopped talking, and gave no quarter. No umms, ahhs, or pauses. And KellyAnne Conway could never compete with the speed of Ortegas’s words.

    Spokesman Ortegas made me smile. Ortegas is as beautiful as FLOTUS Melania, and as on-point as Press Sec Stephanie Grisham. Pity the world, who stands no chance against Morgan Ortegas. 😉
