Seattle Chamber of Commerce: Marriage is Bad for Business

Published

on

The Seattle Chamber of Commerce has endorsed the Washington State ballot initiative that seeks to legalize civil marriage between same-sex couples
The Seattle Post-Intelligencer quotes George Allen, the Chamber’s vice president for government relations, as saying, “There is a clear business case for supporting equal access to civil marriage rights.”
“Marriage equality allows companies to streamline benefit administration, improves our members’ ability to recruit and retain the best talent, and helps our state’s bottom line,” he added.
The bottom line of states that disregard morality is not healthy. And the idea that homosexuals are more “talented” than those who conform to “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God” is a Hollywood-generated stereotype that has about as much of a statistical foundation as the late-20th century descriptor of homosexuals: “gay.”
There certainly is no statistical evidence that homosexuals better exemplify the “Protestant Work Ethic” or make better entrepreneurs, employees, or capitalists.
But many Chambers of Commerce are no longer defenders even of capitalism and commerce as much as they are government subsidies and “crony capitalism.” Ron Paul often gets the lowest GOP score from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which has been getting it wrong since before the New Deal. Indeed, Adam Smith, whose most famous work, Wealth of Nations,  was published the same year as the Declaration of Independence (1776), noted that “People of the same trade seldom meet together, even for merriment and diversion, but the conversation ends in a conspiracy against the public, or in some contrivance to raise prices.”
On May 25, 1791, in “A sermon Preached Before His Excellency John Hancock, Esq. Governor; His Honor Samuel Adams Esq. Lieutenant-Governor; The Honorable The Council, And The Honorable The Senate And House Of Representatives, Of The Commonwealth Of Massachusetts,” Rev. Chandler Robbins pointed out that,
“Industry- attention to business, is another, and a very essential requisite to public prosperity. A spirit of dissipation and indolence is the bane of societies, as well as of families and persons. “Let every one abide in his calling,” is the divine injunction [1 Corinthians 7:20]. A disregard of which, is commonly, and justly, followed with poverty, loss of credit, and misery to individuals, and to societies.”
Things have obviously changed in Massachusetts in 200 years. And the Seattle Chamber of Commerce envies the new approach. Specifically, the Chamber said same-sex “marriage” would “improve recruiting efforts for [Washington] state businesses, which compete against companies in states like Massachusetts and New York that have extended civil marriage rights to same sex couples.”
Just as the modern myth of “separation of church and state” has resulted in a State that thinks it is god, so a separation of morality and market leads business to believe that economic prosperity can be achieved without “a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence.” The economic Blessings of Liberty do not come unless consumers continually remind businesses that they have a duty to acknowledge God and observe His commandments.
But as Chandler Robbins asked, “What ground can there be to expect, that he who, himself disregards the laws of God; will frown on vice and immorality in others? Or, that he who is a slave to his own lusts and passions, will seriously attempt to regulate the passions of others?”

Airline Pilot Charged with Faking Hate Crime of Writing Racist ‘Trump’ Graffiti

A liberal Florida man who works as an airline pilot (well, worked, anyway) has been charged with faking a hate crime.

Published

A liberal Florida man who works as an airline pilot (well, worked, anyway) has been charged with faking a hate crime after he was found to be the one writing fake pro-Trump and racist graffiti at a Tallahassee airport.

James Dees, 53, was arrested after admitting to police that he was the one that perpetrated the graffiti up to eleven times over the last year at the Tallahassee International Airport.

Dees, a now former commercial airline pilot for Endeavor Air in Florida, was charged with nine misdemeanor counts of criminal mischief. He is now out on bond from the Leon County jail.

The now former pilot admitted to at least one example of the graffiti. He told authorities that he wrote “NAGA=No Niggers, No Spicks” on an airport wall.

Graffiti such as the phrase Dees admitted to writing began appearing on airport walls staring in December of 2018, airport officials said.

According to a report:

“Some of the graffiti was done using red or blue markers and erased easily, and some was done using a black permanent marker which took some effort on behalf of maintenance to remove,” police said in a probable cause statement included in Dees’ arrest report.

The first incident was discovered on December 23, 2018, in a men’s restroom stall and said, “#MAGA,” “NO N*GS” and “NO SP*CS.” In May 2019, the same graffiti was found in the stall again, police said.

Different phrases began appearing off and on for the next year.

The leftist pilot — who was a registered Democrat — claimed he was dealing with “anger issues.”

Police nabbed Dees because they finally installed cameras that clearly showed Dees perpetrating the crimes on numerous occasions.

Just another distempered liberal once again proving that liberals are the true danger to this society.

Teacher Outrages Parents with Assignment Saying ‘Dictator Trump Turns Americans into Refugees’

A Pennsylvania middle school teacher has outraged parents by handing out an assignment that presents Trump as a “dictator.”

Published

A Pennsylvania middle school teacher has outraged parents by handing out an assignment that presents Trump as a “dictator” that causes Americans to flee the country as “refugees.”

The teacher at Penn Cambria Middle School in Cambria County, Pennsylvania, drew criticism after the assignment.

According to FrontpageMag:

“President Trump is trying to take control of the United States!” read the deliberately inflammatory assignment, portraying America’s legitimate president as a dictator enacting a coup. “There are fights in the streets! You have to pretend that you are a refugee being forced to leave your home, never to return.”

The assignment then goes on to instruct students to spend only ten minutes to pack a bag because Trump’s soldiers are coming to imprison them. The teacher then ordered the students to empty the bag and then send her a photo of the contents.

“Please have a parent to [sic] time them for 10 minutes while they packed a bag. When the time was up they were to take a picture of the contents of their backpack and then email it to me,” the teacher’s assignment read. “If no picture, then draw it. You will have to present to us why you chose these items. This is due on Thursday. Worth 10 points.”

After parents complained, School District Superintendent William Marshall insisted that the teacher now understands that her assignment was a “huge error.”

Marshall added that the teacher now “understands” that she can’t use the classroom to push her extreme, anti-Trump personal agenda.

The teacher was also ordered to call each parent and apologize.

But one parent was still furious at the teacher’s inappropriate actions.

“As a parent of a student in this very school [I] am ashamed,” one mother wrote on Facebook. “All this did was scare my child… This is not acceptable in any school or towards any leader. I don’t care if you like the president or not this is unacceptable!”

Virginia Sheriff Tells Liberals He WON’T Enforce New Anti-Gun Laws

One Virginia county sheriff boldly pledged that he would refuse to enforce any new unconstitutional gun control laws passed by Democrats.

Published

on

Attending Monday’s Second Amendment rally in Virginia, one county sheriff boldly pledged that he would refuse to enforce any new unconstitutional gun control laws passed by state Democrats.

Despite the fake news media’s accusations that Monday’s rally in Virginia was a “white nationalist” event, the rally was peaceably attended by hundreds of supporters of the Second Amendment.

But it appears that Virginians are not going to bow meekly to the extremist, left-wing state legislature and its desire to put an end to the Second Amendment.

Grayson County Virginia Sheriff Richard Vaughan, for one, is standing up to the anti-American Democrats in his state.

“Grayson County Virginia Sheriff Richard Vaughan is here with his deputies. He said he won’t enforce stricter gun laws,” The Virginian-Pilot’s Alissa Skelton said. “We are here to stand up for the Second Amendment, he said.”

“Many people are shaking his hand and thanking him,” she added.

“If the bills go through as proposed, they will not be enforced,” sheriff Vaughan. “They’re unconstitutional. We swore to uphold the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of Virginia, and that’s what we’ll do.”

The people of Virginia are also not prepared to bend over for the state’s anti-American leftists:

More than 120 Democrats Signed Letter to Support Un-Indicted Terror Group CAIR

More than 120 Democrats in Congress have signed a letter in support of the terror-supporting group CAIR.

Published

on

More than 120 Democrats in Congress have signed a letter in support of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), an un-indicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land terrorism trial.

CAIR is the premiere radical Islamist group in the U.S. that, according to the Department of Justice, was deeply involved with funneling money from American Muslims to terror groups such as Hamas.

Now, more than 120 Democrats have signed a letter to support this terror-supporting outlaw organization acting as traitors right here inside our country.

As the Washington Free Beacon reported:

The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), an advocacy group with deep ties to the anti-Israel movement in America, touted its support among congressional leaders during its 2019 gala conference in November in Washington, D.C. Prominent opponents of the pro-Israel community, including anti-Israel activist Linda Sarsour and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.), headlined the conference.

A copy of CAIR’s conference agenda, obtained by the Free Beacon and published here for the first time, includes well over 100 letters from Democratic and Republican members of Congress, all of whom expressed their support for the controversial organization. Democrats issued the majority of the letters, with only two coming from Republican members of Congress.

The breadth of congressional support for CAIR is likely to generate concern in the pro-Israel community, which has long been at odds with the advocacy group due to its promotion of anti-Israel activists and causes.

Some of the Democrats who signed onto this terror-supporting letter include, Democratic 2020 presidential contenders Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.), Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D., Minn.), and Tom Steyer all penned letters of support. Prominent Democrats such as Omar, Reps. Adam Schiff (D., Calif.), Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich), and Eric Swalwell (D., Calif.).

CAIR is a flatout terror organization. As Islamism researcher Robert Spencer explained:

CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department. CAIR officials have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups. Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror. CAIR’s cofounder and longtime Board chairman (Omar Ahmad), as well as its chief spokesman (Ibrahim Hooper), have made Islamic supremacist statements about how Islamic law should be imposed in the U.S. (Ahmad denies this, but the original reporter stands by her story.) CAIR chapters frequently distribute pamphlets telling Muslims not to cooperate with law enforcement. CAIR has opposed virtually every anti-terror measure that has been proposed or implemented and has been declared a terror organization by the United Arab Emirates. CAIR’s Hussam Ayloush in 2017 called for the overthrow of the U.S. government. CAIR’s national outreach manager is an open supporter of Hamas.

This is the dangerous, anti-American organization that Democrats support.

‘Reporter’ Tries to Get Target Worker Tori Fired Because He Didn’t Like Toothbrush Price

A jerk who thinks being a “verified reporter” makes him important recently used Twitter to try and ruin the life of a Target worker.

Published

A jerk who thinks being a “verified reporter” on Twitter makes him important recently used Twitter to try and ruin the life of a Target worker because she refused to sell him a toothbrush at the price on the tag because the sticker had been improperly affixed to the product.

David Leavitt calls himself an “Award-Winning Multimedia Journalist” on his Twitter account. He claims he has worked for “CBS, AXS, Yahoo, Examiner,” and others. But on Friday, he jumped to that Twitter account imagining that he had a blockbuster story about how a Target outlet in Massachusetts would not sell him an Oral B electronic toothbrush for a penny.

On Friday afternoon, Leavitt was furious when he thought he found a toothbrush listed at one penny, but then discovered that the Target shift manager refused to ring it up for that price because the tag had been improperly affixed to a counter display.

“This Target manager Tori is not honoring the price of their items per Massachusetts law,” the incensed “reporter” wrote adding that he “had to call the police” on the manager.

With his arrogance on full display, Leavitt seemed extra mad because the police told hm they would not arrest Tori or do anything else because he would have to take the retailer to court for redress.

Leavitt may have thought he would get the love of anti-capitalists everywhere for his attack on Tori and her store, but Twitter saw the “reporter’s” story a bit differently. Indeed, most Twitter users thought that the person in the wrong here was Leavitt, not Tori.

Leavitt was ripped to pieces by people wondering why he was trying to destroy the life of a poor store manager. Others sided with Tori because Leavitt was exactly the type of jerkoff customer that all retail workers dread.

Here is a sample of some of those Twitter users who took a swipe at Leavitt:

Needless to say, there are thousands of Tweets like this. Leavitt got absolutely no support for his quest to destroy Tori’s life.

And then there was the guy who realized that Leavitt claimed he had not been to a dentist for “three years” but who found a post Leavitt made just over a year and a half ago where the “reporter” talked about going to a dentist:

So, did this “reporter” lie? Has it been “over three years” since he went to a dentist, or not?

Yes, the media really is full of creeps like this, isn’t it?

Still, when all is said and done, this may end hp helping young Tori out. Someone stated a “Tori Vacation Fund” on GoFundMe and it already has more than $14,000 in donations pledged to it!

Finally, here are some screen shots of Leavitt’s tweets, just in case he realizes what an ass he looks like and deletes them:

Horror Writer Stephen King Facing Backlash for Saying ‘Quality’ Matters Over ‘Diversity’

 Stephen King, the legendary horror writer and virulently liberal anti-Trumper, is facing a backlash from his left-wing fans.

Published

Stephen King, the legendary horror writer and virulently liberal anti-Trumper, is facing a backlash from his left-wing fans after he said that “quality” should be more important than “diversity” in entertainment.

King made his comments after the announcements of the Oscar nominations that proved to be severely lacking in minority nominees.

King saw his extremely liberal fan base complaining about the very white Oscar nominations. And King waded in to tell his fans what part he has in the Motion Picture Academy.

“As a writer, I am allowed to nominate in just 3 categories: Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Original Screenplay. For me, the diversity issue — as it applies to individual actors and directors, anyway — did not come up. That said… I would never consider diversity in matters of art. Only quality. It seems to me that to do otherwise would be wrong,” King tweeted.

But the Shinning writer quickly found his fans on the attack.

The editor of Zora magazine was one fan who took a shot at the It scribe.

“With the utmost respect, I think this is quite a bit unfair. When films created by people of color, irrespective of quality, constantly get overlooked by institutions that are predominately comprised of white men, there is an implicit bias at work here,” she tweeted.

Other hardcore liberals piled on:

It wasn’t long before King was trying to walk back his previous statements… at least a bit:

260 Million Christians Face ‘High Levels Of Persecution’

“It is worth noting that in eight of the top ten countries where Christian persecution is highest, Islamist ideology is the prime driver of the hostility.”

Published

on

260 million Christians face ‘extreme’, ‘very high’, or ‘high’ levels of persecution.

Growing pressure on Christians in China, Algeria, Burkina Faso, according to the 2020 Open Doors World Watch List. Christians face severe persecution in 73 countries.

“The church is alive. The church is active. The church is growing. And that’s why the church is persecuted,” says Open Doors in its 2020 report. “The persecution of Christians is getting more severe than ever, affecting increasing numbers of believers around the world.”

Each year, Open Doors releases the World Watch List, an annual look at the 50 places where following Jesus costs the most. This year, join David Curry as he takes into the story behind some of the numbers, and looks at how pressure changes the Church.

Breitbart:

Christian persecution around the globe reached an unprecedented level at the end of 2019, with over 260 million Christians facing “high levels of persecution,” Open Doors revealed Wednesday.

In its World Watch List 2020, Open Doors notes that one in 8 believers around the world suffers serious levels of persecution, while providing an in-depth look at the 50 countries where it is most dangerous to be a Christian.

In a nutshell, the new report reveals, every day, eight Christians are killed because of their faith and 23 Christians are raped or sexually harassed; every week, 182 Christian churches or buildings are attacked and 102 Christian homes, shops or businesses are attacked, burned, or destroyed; every month, 309 Christians are imprisoned unjustly.

The most acute persecution of Christians occurs in North Korea, the report found, but Afghanistan is close behind in the number two slot.

In the case of North Korea, persecution is driven by a virulent atheistic Communist ideology which views the estimated 200,000 to 400,000 Christians as traitors of the state because their allegiance is to God, not supreme leader Kim Jong Un. Moreover, they also form part of the lowest “hostile class” in the country’s social stratification system called Songbun. More

Rather than helping peaceful Christians that are persecuted around the world, western governments insist on helping Muslims! Print off the report from Open Doors and provide it to your Pastor and church leadership. If this is not being discussed from the pulpit, ask your church leadership why it is not.
