JUSTICE SERVED To Red Hen Owner As She’s Forced Out After Sudden Turn Of Events

Published

on

I consider this very good news. Stephanie Wilkinson, the owner of the now infamous Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, VA that kicked out White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and seven members of her family, has resigned as the executive director of a group of local business owners who work to promote the community.

This came after a poll was conducted on whether she should stay or go. I voted in that poll against her and for once it made a difference. So much for her envisioning herself as some kind of local hero over her disgraceful behavior. Wilkinson told The Washington Post that she asked Sanders to leave because the restaurant employs several LGBT employees and Sanders’ defense of President Trump’s call to bar transgender people from the military were antithetical to her beliefs.

Wilkinson already had to take down her Facebook page because she got hammered and hacked there. I also hear that business for Wilkinson has taken a severe hit. After Sanders was 86’d from the Red Hen, conservatives and Trump supporters took to Yelp and blasted Wilkinson. That was only hours after the incident took place. Then protesters that support the Trump administration showed up outside the Red Hen.

That got media attention. Some carried enormous Trump flags and donned red “Make America Great Again” hats. Others carried signs asking for tolerance and civility. And as it kicked into high gear, many just showed up to watch. The incident sparked many protests and a whole lot of criticism from Trump supporters and even some Democrats. The Republican Party of Virginia has called for a boycott of the business.

A raucous demonstration occurred when people gathered outside the Red Hen to protest the restaurant’s treatment of Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

“I’m appalled at the way they treated the press secretary, and I think if people don’t make a stand, that kind of stuff will continue around the state and around the country,” said Ian McDonald, 34, of Accomack County. “So we’ve got to send a message that it’s not acceptable.” “I think by [Wilkinson] making the choice to do this, she opened herself up to a fired-up country,” Paulette DelCasale, from Georgia, said while protesting outside the restaurant. “I believe this city is losing its identity,” said Simon Islam, a senior at Washington and Lee University, which is in Lexington. “It’s become too liberal, and it’s had a negative impact.”

Lauren Green at Fox News asked a very good question over all of this:

“The owner of the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia missed a prime opportunity to live out the framed words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. that are on display in the restaurant’s window: “Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend.”

“Those words are very close to the sentiment of President Abraham Lincoln, who after the Civil War said of the Southern combatants: “Do I not destroy my enemies when I make them my friends?”

“If restaurant owner Stephanie Wilkinson so disagreed with White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, the Trump administration and all Cabinet members so strongly, why didn’t she see Sanders’ presence in her restaurant as a gift from God to try to transform an enemy into a friend?”

Indeed, it was a missed opportunity that could have actually helped Wilkinson’s cause. Evidently, the Golden Rule is much more difficult than it sounds: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”

VA State Representative Ben Cline profusely apologized for the actions of the Red Hen restaurant owner and made it clear they do not support what she did. She also stalked Sanders’ in-laws when they left and went to another restaurant where she assembled a mob to harass them. Wilkinson proceeded to protest against them there as well. Cline also claims that Stephanie Wilkinson is a cousin of Meryl Streep’s. Why am I not surprised. Her actions negatively impacted the Facebook page for The Historic City of Lexington, VA. It had to be shut down after getting deluged with negative comments on all this. They were the ones who ran the poll and whose board Wilkinson was removed from as director of the downtown business district. 80% wanted her gone and that was all it took for her to resign.

The Red Hen restaurant itself has evidently shut its doors for an undetermined amount of time. Justin Peery, the owner of Good Place Farms Bed & Breakfast, which hosted the Sanders family last week, said Wilkinson will not reopen the restaurant until July 5. I wouldn’t hold my breath on that one. Sounds like justice to me. Wilkinson has the right to kick out whomever she wants, but she also has the right to go out of business when people stop going there. Things just aren’t going her way. So much for her version of morality. The extended shutdown will cost the employees and owners significantly.

Main Street Lexington’s Board President, Elizabeth Branner, accepted Wilkonson’s resignation yesterday morning. “Considering the events of the past weekend, Stephanie felt it best that for the continued success of Main Street Lexington, she should step aside,” Branner wrote in an email. She’s right… some mistakes you just can’t come back from.

VIDEO: Border Patrol Releases Surveillance Video Of Mass Central American Invasion

Published

on

...

* By

When President Trump was forced to end the “zero-tolerance” campaign at the Southern border because of the lib outcry, the number of people entering our country illegally skyrocketed.

Of course, Dems want this. Those are their future voters right there.

It’s past time to send in more National Guard units.

Fox News is reporting the latest:

“Large groups of Central American migrants continue to surrender to Border Patrol agents in Arizona with the arrival of one recent group numbering 108 captured in dramatic video images, authorities said Friday.

The agency said camera operators monitoring movement Thursday afternoon along the U.S.-Mexico border in the Yuma area captured images of a large number of people being dropped over the border wall east of the San Luis Port of Entry.

It said the smugglers never crossed the border while they helped migrants over the wall in four places. The group was comprised of 100 Guatemalans and eight Hondurans. They included 52 children, nine of them 5 years and younger.

The mass crossing occurred while another drama was being played out much farther south as a caravan of several thousand Central American migrants traveled northbound, prompting President Donald Trump to warn Mexico to stop them from reaching the U.S. border.

Arizona Border Patrol agents for weeks have been overwhelmed by the arrival of large numbers of Central American migrants traveling in families.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Arizona earlier this month began releasing hundreds of people to await court dates, saying it didn’t have the capacity to hold an “incredibly high volume” of migrant families showing up at the border.

“Coordinated smuggling of large numbers of Central Americans is taking place daily here,” Yuma Sector Chief Patrol Agent Anthony Porvaznik said in a written statement.

Before the arrival of the latest group, authorities said that collectively more than 1,400 migrants had been left by smugglers in the broiling desert — or in one case in a drenching thunderstorm — in remote areas by Arizona’s border with Mexico since Aug. 20. One group was as large as 275 people.

Unlike Texas, where people turn themselves in on the banks of the Rio Grande, the smugglers near Arizona have been dumping groups of migrant families near Yuma, or farther to the east on a remote dirt road running along the southern limit of the Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument near the Lukeville Port of Entry.

While Mexican men traveling without relatives once made up the bulk of the migrants, Guatemalans and other Central Americans traveling in families or as unaccompanied minors are now the norm.”

Benghazi Survivor Has Choice Words For Those Who Criticize Trump Over Khashoggi

Published

* By

Liberals, MSM, & some Republicans have been criticizing Trump over how he’s handled the killing of a Saudi reporter who worked for the Washington Post.

Libs & MSM most likely have an ulterior motive as they want Trump to punish Saudi Arabia which could harm our relationship with the country, not to mention, their spending on U.S. defense items which equals a lot of jobs here.

Now a Benghazi survivor is stepping up to the plate for Trump & he has an epic message for his detractors.

Kris Paronto “was part of the CIA annex security team that responded to the terrorist attack on the US Special Mission in Benghazi, Libya, September 11th, 2012, helping to save over 20 lives while fighting off terrorists from the CIA Annex for over 13 hours. Mr. Paronto’s story is told in the book “13 Hours” written by Mitchell Zuckoff and his five surviving annex security team members.”

The Daily Caller reported:

“Benghazi survivor Kris “Tanto” Paronto had a few choice words for those who have been critical of President Donald Trump’s response to the death of Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Khashoggi at Turkey’s Saudi Arabian Embassy.

Addressing his tweet to the “leftist journalists & liberalists” who are angry about the Trump administration’s handling of the situation, Paronto asked, “Where in the hell were you when @BarackObama left 30+ AMERICANS to die in Benghazi Libya including an Ambassador?”

Saudi state media reported on Friday that Khashoggi had, in fact, been killed inside the embassy. So far, eighteen arrests have been made — and some of those arrested have close ties to the Saudi crown prince.

Turkish officials claim to have a recording of Khashoggi’s death, which they have said was essentially a hit, ordered by the crown prince himself and carried out by professionals.

Despite an early report that U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had been granted access to the recording, the top diplomat has refuted that claim in a statement.

The investigation, currently being carried out by Saudi and Turkish officials, is still ongoing.”

USA Today reported about Paranto’s attitude toward Obama & Benghazi earlier:

“Former Army Ranger Kris Paronto said he wanted to reach through the screen and “choke” former President Barack Obama after the one-time commander in chief referred to “wild conspiracy theories” surrounding the 2012 attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, that left four Americans dead.

Paronto, a then-CIA contractor who was part of the response to the attack, made the comment during a Fox News interview Sunday.

“It’s disgusting,” Paronto told Fox News host Pete Hegseth, adding that he thought it showed Obama to be a “narcissist” and “elitist.”

“It just raises the bile inside of me. I had a hard time just watching the speech itself,” he said.

“I just wanted to see what he had to say. And when that came across, I just wanted to reach through the screen and just grab him — grab him and choke him and say, ‘Are you kidding me? Are you kidding me that you’d have the gall to disgrace the memory of my teammates and what we did there that night by calling it conspiracy?’””
