Kroger Employee Refuses Service To Cop, What The Company Did Next Was Even Worse!

Why doesn’t Kroger’s support local law enforcement?

Published

on

Blue Lives Matter received a request from Pineville Police Department Pfc. Sabrina Farace to tell her story of the abuse she received at a local grocery store simply for wearing a police shirt. As if this year hasn’t been hard enough for Officer Farace while dealing with a messy divorce from her abusive husband, she had to deal with a humiliating experience in public for being a police officer. When walking into the grocery store with her 6-yr-old girl she never imagined she was about to experience another type of abuse that’s built on hate. I am writing this story today so YOU can make sure Farace story spreads far and wide so this employee can lose her job for her hateful treatment of a police officer. Here is her story:

On 09-27-16 at approximately 4:00 PM I was in Kroger’s shopping with my 6-year-old daughter. I walked up to the checkout line and placed my items on the counter for the cashier to scan my items. She sat there for a few moments and kept looking at me odd.

When she refused to speak or pick any of my items up, I asked her if I could help her. She replied, “Do you have your Kroger card?” At which I responded, “Yes, I do.”

I handed her my Kroger member card and she reluctantly took it from my hands. After she took [the card] I was waiting for her to continue checking me out. She looked at me and with a rude tone she asked “Are you on the force?” I stated, “Come again?” She asked again, rudely, “Are you on the force, are you a cop?” I stated “Yes, maam I am a cop.” She then looked at me and stated, “I can’t check you out, I have to go get my supervisor.”

I stated, “OK” because I did not know what her reason was for stating that she could not continue to check me out. I assumed maybe it was time for her to get off or some other reason. When she came back to the counter she stated, “My supervisor is tied up right now.” I asked, “What’s the deal?” She replied, “I can not check you out because you are police officer and I can’t check you out because you are a cop and I have issues with the police right now.” At which I replied, “You have to be kidding me right?” She stated “No, I am not.” I then stated “If this is the case I would like to speak to your supervisor myself because this is unacceptable to treat a customer this way.”

She then walked off and shortly later she came back with a white male that I assumed was her supervisor. I told him that the employee (AJ written on her name tag) had refused to check me out because after she asked me if I was on the force, and when I told her I was a cop, she refused to check me out. He looked at her and said “You have to check out all customers.”

I began to tell him I didn’t appreciate being asked what I do for a living period no matter what kind of shirt I was wearing, because it is not her business. I told him that this kind of behavior is unacceptable for any customer to be treated in this manner. I asked him if he would continue to allow her to treat customers like that as she stood there smirking as if nothing would be done. I said, if you condone this kind of behavior and discrimination I’m sure the media would love to know how you allow employees to treat customers this way for wearing a police supporting shirt and being a police officer.

He replied, well that’s not nice to threaten me to call the media and I guess I’ll just call Cooper. I told him that he could call whoever he wanted because I did not work for Cooper. He began telling me that she explained to him that she had problems with the police. I stated to him that apparently I would not be the only person wearing a shirt supporting police or a police officer that came into the store. I stated that she was an embarrassment to the store treat people that way. I also told him that he, as a manager, should be embarrassed for the poor job at making not making an attempt to correct the situation that he, himself, was an embarrassment to Kroger’s. I told him that I refused to come back to the store and left my groceries where they laid after she stated she could not check me out. I then left, and will refuse to ever shop at the store from this point on account of this incident.

I have been a customer there for more than 15 years but this is unacceptable to be treated that way no matter what your profession may be nor should it be acceptable to be asked what you do based on their opinions of that profession.

I am speechless that this employee has been allowed to treat any customer in this manner. Kroger corporate website ‘VALUES’ page says:
Respect: We treat all with dignity and value the opinions and perspectives of others.
Diversity: We seek and embrace differences in the backgrounds, cultures and ethnicities of all associates, customers and vendors.
Safety: We protect our customers and each other from injury with a safe and secure workplace and shopping environment.

The sad facts were revealed by Blue Lives Matter

After complaining, Pfc. Sabrina Farace advised that she did receive a phone call from a Kroger corporate manager who asked her what had happened. After being told the story, the manger said that he would call her back in a day or so. It has now been almost two weeks since this incident occurred and she still has not received a response.

They have ignored the complaint of one lowly Police Officer despite their company ‘VALUES’. Please help us send Kroger a message. Take 1 minute to post on their Facebook HERE: https://www.facebook.com/Kroger/ or Twitter HERE: https://twitter.com/kroger. Or even better message two of the V.P. at Krogers Corporate to DO something about this bigoted employee by clicking on their name and sending a message or posting on their wall if possible:

BREAKING!! TRUMP DID IT!! DC TOURIST SHOCKED After Shutdown!

Published

on

Over the last 24 hours, the country has been plunged into chaos after the government shutdown. Well, that is what the Democrats would love for you to believe but lo and behold everything is working just fine and will continue to despite the hysteria the mainstream media has pushed. In fact, the majority of Americans will not notice a thing gone awry since only non-essential government workers were affected by this liberal grandstanding for illegal immigrants.

However, that was not the case back in 2013 when Barack Obama threw his temper tantrum by refusing to negotiate with Republicans on how to fund the government. Instead, Obama shut the government down but not before he realized that when he did no one would really notice his dramatic gesture and things would continue to work despite their absence. So, Obama decided with his flair for dramatic, ramped up the theatrics by closing down the national parks which included the World War II Memorial in Washington.

Even during the shutdown of 2013, the House Committee on Natural Resources noted that “the Obama Administration is going out of its way to take unreasonable and unnecessary steps to block public access to parks and monuments that aren’t warranted by a government shutdown.”

“In addition, none of these D.C. memorials were closed during the last government shutdown in 1995-1996 under the Clinton Administration. The Obama Administration’s closing of these sites is not something they are required to do; it’s something they are CHOOSING to do. The Obama Administration wants the effects of this government shutdown to be as painful as possible.”

However, that was then, and this is now, and here we are in the midst of another government shutdown, but something is very different. Instead of crying and making a public scene President Trump is allowing this absurd liberal hissy fit to run its course leaving the theatrics out of it which many government workers and tourists noticed today.

Just one day into the shutdown Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke went to work cleaning up trash on the National Mall and speaking to school children with a smile on Sunday morning. Nope, Zinke was not out of a job or turning people away from the memorials but doing what he does every day.

Here is more from The Daily Caller:

“We’re not putting up barricades,” Zinke told The Daily Caller in an interview. “Absolutely not. We’re passing out brochures until we run out of brochures. I’ll be out here every day.”

Zinke and much of the federal government has had the vast majority of staff furloughed due to the government shutdown. 

The shutdown happened on Friday when Democrats refused to vote for a GOP budget bill that kept the government funded. A shutdown means all “non-essential” government workers get furloughed and the rest go without pay until Congress can pass a funding bill.

The last government shutdown was in 2013 under the Obama administration. For that shutdown, the Department of Interior made the controversial decision to close public parks, monuments, and battlefields. The decision led to some comical and ultimately sad stories of children having their D.C. school trips canceled and veterans not being able to visit monuments built in their honor.

However, if you were looking for similar headlines under the Trump administration, keep looking.

In the first hours of the government shutdown Secretary Zinke was making plans for how to keep America’s public parks open. In the early hours of Saturday morning, Zinke met with public affairs and maintenance staff to run through a plan to keep memorials on the National Mall open. He then spoke with garbagemen who will be picking up trash on the Mall one last time before the city of D.C. takes over for them.

Zinke then got into his car and drove to the WWII memorial to greet visitors and hand out maps and helped with directions. “I spent the morning walking around, giving brochures out,” Zinke said. “I got a lot of thanks from both sides of the aisle. We will not weaponize our public lands.”

“The visitor experience will be diminished,” Zinke admitted, noting that some museums and public service will take a hit during the shutdown. “But to the degree possible, we will keep our public lands open. They should not be used as a political weapon.”

Photo credits: Twitter

Zinke said public parks, monuments, and the battlefields “belong to the people and not the government,” and noted that people will see a “significant difference” between the Trump administration and Obama’s in the way public lands are managed during a shutdown.

Now, of course, this government shutdown is unnecessary, but since it happened, it is great to see the vast difference between Obama and Trump’s leadership. Obama chose to make the American people hurt every chance he got, while Trump is in the business of protecting the American people and our culture.

Hopefully, this ridiculous government shutdown will end, and we can get back to work on making America great again, but with the left who knows how long they will draw this out.

BREAKING! Melania Horrifically Attacked – She Needs Your Support NOW!

Published

on

As the First Lady, Melania Trump has been heartlessly and viciously attacked just for being her husband’s wife. As has Barron for being the son of President Trump. Families are off limits but clearly, the liberal press does not understand this notion or idea. This latest news development that was released is nothing more than a terrible attack against her character as well as her husband in an attempt to fracture the Trump marriage

One news outlet alleges,

United States President Donald Trump, seven months before an alleged rendezvous with porn star Stormy Daniels, reportedly told radio host Howard Stern that he would give his then pregnant wife, Melania, a week to lose the baby weight.

According to the Washington Post, Trump during an appearance on Stern’s show on Dec 7, 2005 told him, “You know, Howard, she’s got the kind of a body and makeup where, about one day after the baby, it’s going to be the same as it was before.” In response to this, Stern quizzed Trump, asking “You’re giving her one day?”

One or two,” Trump replied. Moments later, the future president reconsidered, “I think I’ll give her a week,” he stated, “No, I’ll give her a week.” At the time of the interview, Melania Trump was five months pregnant with her first child, Trump’s fifth. Barron Trump was born March 20, 2006, the report said.

This happened around the same time adult film actress, Stormy Daniels, in an In Touch magazine interview conducted in 2011, alleged that she had sex with Trump in July of 2006 at a golf tournament in Nevada. In Touch magazine printed its full 2011 interview with Daniels on Friday.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, became the center of attention last week when allegations of an affair between Trump and Daniels surfaced in a Wall Street Journal article.

Last week, The Wall Street Journal reported that a Trump lawyer had arranged a $130,000 payment to Clifford in October 2016 to keep quiet about their relationship.
Both Clifford and Trump’s legal team have since denied the affair and the payment.”

Clearly, people don’t understand the difference between a facetious joke and seriousness. Howard Stern’s show is meant to be provocative and exaggerated and that is exactly what he got when the then real estate mogul sat down with him.

The Washington Post reported,

The White House did not respond to a request for comment. Speaking generally about his appearances on Stern’s show, Trump told The Washington Post in April 2016: “I never anticipated running for office or being a politician, so I could have fun with Howard on the radio, and everyone would love it. People do love it. I could say whatever I wanted when I was an entrepreneur, a business guy.”

Trump also said in the 2005 interview that he had seen “beautiful women that for the rest of their lives have become [a] horror” after giving birth. “You know, they gain like 250 pounds,” he told Stern. “It’s like a disaster.”

At the time of the interview, Melania Trump was five months pregnant with her first child, Trump’s fifth. Barron Trump was born March 20, 2006. Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, told In Touch magazine that she had sex with Trump in July 2006 at a golf tournament in Nevada. The In Touch interview was conducted in 2011 but published for the first time this week.

Trump denies the affair with Daniels. And Daniels denies a Wall Street Journal report that she accepted $130,000 from Trump attorney Michael Cohen to keep quiet during the 2016 presidential election. Trump’s comments to Stern fit a pattern of public remarks and alleged behavior during and after Melania’s pregnancy. The infamous “Access Hollywood” video, in which Trump boasted about groping and kissing women without their consent, was recorded in September 2005, when Melania was about two months along.

Celebrity journalist Natasha Stoynoff claims that Trump pressed her against a wall and forcibly kissed her in December 2005, around the time of the Stern interview. At the time, Stoynoff was interviewing the Trumps at Mar-a-Lago for a People magazine feature. She wrote about the alleged encounter in October 2016.”

There is no veracity to the allegations of the President’s extramarital affairs or that he actually held Melania to task for losing her weight after a week. These are nothing but allegations and jokes made and twisted against the Trump family for the purpose of trying to humiliate them and it is nothing short of embarrassing on the part of the media.

Other stories in the past have been circulated against the First Lady which have never been proven and have zero accuracy to them. Allegations such as she was a prostitute, she is an illegal alien who didn’t come to the United States the right way, that she and the President have an arranged marriage, that she is going to divorce him while he is still in office.

The media should be held to a higher standard. Both by themselves and by those outside of their circle. Melania Trump deserves better and so does her family, instead of reporting on this nonsense reporters should be reporting on the real issues at hand such as the government shutdown.

Trump Just Obliterated Obama For What He Took From WH Because He Was Sick Of Seeing It Every Day

HE HATED THE PLACE, THIS PROVES IT!

Published

on

Our new First Lady Melania Trump released her first White House Christmas video this past Monday. It shows all the decorations which illustrate a stark difference between the Trump’s and the Obama’s Christmas at the White House celebration.

The most obvious difference between the two decorating styles is the ambiance. Melania Trump decorated the White House to look like a peaceful and magical place, very elegant and the definition of what Christmas is supposed to be. She shared the video of the display on her Instagram page.

The Christmas decorations and some scenes looked just like a true come to life winter fairytale land, something out of a book. But what is most important about this video is the nativity scene, which had been absent from the White House since Barack Hussein Obama took office in 2009.

The White House’s 2017 nativity scene

The fact that the White House once again has a nativity scene proves beyond any shadow of a doubt that President Trump did, in fact, keep his promise to bring “Christmas back” and end the so-called “Happy Holiday” movement.

 

What a difference one year can make. The Obama’s final Christmas in the White House had no mention of Jesus whatsoever. The decorations included a vast display of Lego gingerbread houses. Michelle actually hired a team of Lego builders to build a total of 56 gingerbread houses which required a total of over 200,000 Lego pieces. Because we all know nothing says “Christmas” and “Jesus” like Legos. In fact, the Obama era decorations had nothing whatsoever to do with Jesus at all.

South Dakota’s gingerbread house features Mount Rushmore and is one of the 56 one-of-a-kind Lego gingerbread houses–one for each state and territory. It took more than 200,000 Legos and 500 hours to build these decorations for the State Dining Room.

Please America, please don’t make the same mistake again. There is no way a person who has a Muslim name and upbringing should ever be President of the United States of America again. We all know the majority of Americans suffered from white guilt in 2008 and 2012, but now we are over it. And America can once again be America again!

Christmas Traditions at the White House

Nineteenth-century White House Christmas celebrations were not grand state affairs but usually simple family events. The first family decorated the house with greens and there were celebrations on the holiday.

The first White House Christmas party was held in December 1800. President and Mrs. Adams gave it for their four-year-old granddaughter Suzannah, who was living with them. The Adams invited the children of “official” Washington to the party.

One of the most elaborate children’s Christmas parties was President Andrew Jackson’s “frolic” for the children of his household in 1834. This party included games, dancing, a grand dinner, and ended with an indoor “snowball fight” with specially made cotton balls.

The first Christmas tree in the White House was placed in the second floor Yellow Oval Room (then used as a family parlor and library) in 1889 (Benjamin Harrison administration). It was decorated with candles, toys, etc. for the Harrison grandchildren.

The Cleveland Family tree decorated with red, white and blue electric light bulbs, delighted the president’s young daughters. It was placed in the second floor Oval Room of the White House in 1894.

President and Mrs. Theodore Roosevelt hosted a “carnival” during the 1903 Christmas season for 500 children including dinner, dancing, musical entertainment, souvenirs, and a special treat in the form of ice cream formed in the shape of Santa and other Christmas novelties. President Roosevelt, an avowed conservationist, did not approve of cutting trees for Christmas decorations. However, his son Archie defied the ban and smuggled in a small tree that was decorated and hidden in a closet in the upstairs sewing room.

The Taft children placed the first tree on the State floor in the Blue Room in 1909. The Wilsons continued to have a tree in the Blue Room.

President Calvin Coolidge was the first chief executive to preside over the National Christmas tree lighting ceremony on the Ellipse in 1923. Today, the Christmas Pageant of Peace, a major event held annually on the Ellipse since 1954, includes the lighting of the National Christmas Tree. This celebration respects the holiday worship of all faiths and features the appearance of the first family to light the tree and host live musical and dance performances.

First Lady Lou Henry Hoover established the custom of decorating an official tree in the White House in 1929. Since that time, the honor of trimming the Christmas tree on the state floor has belonged to our first ladies. The tree stands in the oval Blue Room, an elegant space honored as the center of holiday splendor.

In 1961, First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy began the tradition of selecting a theme for the official White House Christmas tree. She decorated a tree placed in the oval Blue Room with ornamental toys, birds and angels modeled after Petr Tchaikovsky’s “Nutcracker Suite” ballet.

In 1961 First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy began the tradition of selecting a theme for the official White House Christmas tree. That year the tree was decorated with ornamental toys, birds, angels and characters from the “Nutcracker Suite” ballet. For the American Flowers Tree in 1969, First Lady Patricia Nixon arranged for disabled workers in Florida to make velvet and satin balls featuring each states official flower.

The record for the number of trees in the White House was held for many years by the Eisenhower administration when 26 trees filled every floor of the house. That mark has been eclipsed on several occasions in recent times, including the Clinton administration’s 36 trees in the 1997 theme of “Santa’s Workshop,” and the 2008 White House Christmas decorations of the Bush administration that included 27 trees as part of a theme of “A Red, White and Blue Christmas.”

Franklin D. Roosevelt always read Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol to his family on Christmas Eve.
Beginning in 1961, in the Kennedy administration, themes have been selected for the Blue Room tree. That year was decorated with objects depicting characters and toys from the “Nutcracker Suite” ballet.
Since 1966, the National Christmas Tree Association has held a competition for the White House Blue Room tree.

Over her eight White House holiday seasons, First Lady Hillary Clinton showcased the talents of America’s artistic communities. First Lady Laura Bush varied the decorations, including the themes of “All Creatures Grand and Small in 2002” highlighting her love of animals and the importance of pets to White House history and a patriotic “A Red, White and Blue Christmas” in 2008. The theme had been inspired by letters from Americans that began arriving after September 11th suggesting the White House have a red, white and blue Christmas. First Lady Michelle Obama announced the 2010 White House Christmas theme of “Simple Gifts” and she explained, “The greatest blessings of all are the ones that don’t cost a thing: the time that we spend with our loved ones, the freedoms we enjoy as Americans and the joy we feel from reaching out to those in need.”

Please share if you are happy to say “Merry Christmas” again….
