Popular Oregon Coffee Shop Forced Out Of Neighborhood For Absolutely Disgusting Reason

Liberals are behind this!

Published

on

Earlier this year a new coffee shop named Weird Wave Coffee was opened in Boyle Heights, California. John Schwartz, Mario Chavarria, and Jackson Defa who own the coffee shop are doing their best to make a difference in the world. The three ambitious men serve coffee from Heart Roasters of Portland, Oregon, and pastries from Homeboy Industries which provides training and support to former gang members or previously incarcerated people. Now, you would think that this would be a good thing, right?

Well, if you thought this would be applauded by the left you would be wrong. You see, the mindless liberal drones in Boyle Heights are trying to shut this little coffee shop down, and the reason why is insane.

There is a fierce battle happening in Boyle Heights currently and who will win is anyone’s guess. Three business owners attempting to make a living and help others down on their luck are facing immense pushback. Every day since the Weird Wave Coffee shop opened there have been protests and petitions signed to have the business closed.

The reason that they are trying to shut down this business is that they feel it is gentrifying the community. What that means is that they feel that white people are coming in to push them out by renovating older homes and opening businesses. That when this accomplished the prices of homes will go up and they will no longer have a place to live.

Defend Boyle Heights recently wrote this on Facebook explaining their reasons for their protest.

“we can’t let Boyle Heights become the new Highland Park, Echo Park or Silverlake! The vast majority – approximately 80-percent renters – can’t afford for that to happen.”

The group continued with their tirade saying, “Things will only escalate. Not because we want them too, but because this is literally a life or death, home or homeless, battle, since the 1990s, Boyle Heights has struggled to get and keep authentically affordable housing. It’s not just about what a dozen of activists want; it’s about what all these residents who organize with all the groups that make up our coalition want.”

The misguided group also added, “say no to Weird Wave Coffee! Stand with the low-income working class majority of Boyle Heights! This isn’t just about coffee; it’s about keeping Boyle Heights affordable! Dile no a los cocos! Gentrifiers are not welcomed in Boyle Heights! Fuera!”
Apparently, the group does not understand economics at all or what the company is even about. The Weird Wave Coffee shop owners released this statement after the group decided to protest them:

“Weird Wave Coffee is a company owned by three individuals committed to a fair and consistent approach to the grassroots enterprise of selling coffee,” explained the owners, adding, “we recognize the role a coffee shop plays in a community, both as an advocate for that community but also as a vendor who’s role in the local economy is impactful. At Weird Wave, our goal is largely to supply incredibly delicious coffee and non-alcoholic beverages to the community.”

John Schwarz, Mario Chavarria, and Jackson Defa, the co-owners of Weird Wave Coffee Brewers.

The statement these owners made was pretty clear that they are not there to harm the community. “Weird Wave’s approach to doing business locally begins and ends with keeping the flow of money inside the community,” they pointed out, noting, “we take special pains to seek out vendors for our products who share our local-first approach.” Despite this, the residents still want them gone.

But, I guess that does not matter to these people or the fact that one of the owners is a Bernie Sanders fan to boot. Sadly though this is not the first time that the group has protested a business and shut it down. Earlier this year, the Boyle Height Defenders shut down an art gallery called PSSST after protesters harassed and made it difficult to fundraise money. “The ongoing controversy surrounding art and gentrification in Boyle Heights caused PSSST to become so contested that we are unable to ethically and financially proceed with our mission,” stated the organizers at the time of the closing.

I don’t know about you but this protest seems pretty ridiculous to me. Could you imagine if the situation was reversed and white people were trying to force out a black owned business? There would riots and protests in the streets, arrests would be made, and a new law passed before anyone could say a thing about it.

These leftist are always screaming that there are not enough job for minorities. But, when a business wants to go into a neighborhood to bring jobs and help those who have been incarcerated or down on their luck it is suddenly racist and wrong.

These business owners just wanted to bring their business into a small neighborhood and offer something new. But, the authoritative left cannot allow that unless they are the ones that make the decision. Which is why trying to make sense of liberals is almost as useless as using an umbrella in a Hurricane. They never make any clear logical points and they are always contradicting themselves with one non-sequitur after another.

This is why conservatives need to push back against the left’s bullying tactics once and for all and stand united against them.

Entire Broncos Team Just Woke To WORST News Of The Season After They Didn’t Listen – Too Late Now

Published

on

They say if you want to know why something is happening, all you have to do is follow the money.  Unfortunately for the NFL, they grossly miscalculated what would be the results of their stance on the National Anthem protest started by Colin Kaepernick and all of those supporting the Black Lives Matter movement.

The plan was obviously to bring awareness to an issue that they considered to be problematic, however, all they seem to have drawn awareness to is the rampant nature of the entitled racist mindset held by many players that most of the NFL fans wanted to overlook. In the case of the Denver Broncos, their plight is worse than most. Not only do they have to deal with the league itself tanking as the ratings and ticket sales go down the drain, their local sponsors are pulling away from them in droves.

Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall was at one time a college teammate of Kaepernick and an early convert to the cause. This caused Marshall to lose some of his personal endorsements, but even bigger than that is the mass exodus from the team itself. Westword reports that local radio stations are starting to lose advertisers for the slots taken up during the broadcasts of the Broncos games.

“At least two advertisers have asked that their commercials no longer run during KOA‘s radio broadcasts of Denver Broncos games because they’re upset by national anthem-related demonstrations prior to the kickoff of NFL games.

‘Yeah, there’s been a couple’ that have pulled out, confirms Tim Hager, market manager for iHeartMedia’s Denver stations, including KOA, ‘and that’s the rationale.'”

No matter what the entitled millionaires think, the small business in the heartland just aren’t going to want to be associated with a group that is against everything we stand for.

“Controversy bubbled up again last month when teams throughout the league took part in various protests before and during the playing of the anthem — and this time around, there was fallout for Von Miller, the Broncos’ biggest star. Miller’s decision to take a knee, along with dozens of teammates, was followed by reports that Phil Long Dealerships had dropped him as an endorser. Miller’s reps subsequently insisted that his deal with the company had lapsed months earlier and negotiations were ongoing — but a statement from the firm strongly suggested that he shouldn’t hold his breath waiting for a new pact to be signed. It read in part: ‘When we bring in celebrities to represent us, we run the risk of being misinterpreted.'”

Tim Hager with former Broncos and current Orange and Blue Radio personalities Ray Crockett and Steve Atwater at a Broncos game last month.

Basically what Phil Long Dealerships is saying is that when they  entrust their name to a celebrity, their reputations are entwined at that time. In other words, if that celeb acts badly, it reflects badly on the business that they’re endorsing. We’ve seen this in the past with other businesses who got mud on their face because someone that they entrusted with their brand acted badly.

“Hager characterizes [their reasons for pulling their ads] as general displeasure with the NFL over the controversy.

In response, he says, ‘we immediately found ways for the advertisers to get their message out and support what they wanted to support. And we’ve also been airing the national anthem in our game broadcasts, which we didn’t do before this year. So we’ve found ways to strengthen what we’re doing.'”

Americans are still working on wearing down the NFL on a national level, but at least for now the local stations are beginning to see just how importation patriotism is to the American people. It was one thing when an individual player wasn’t willing to respect the flag, but with signs of disrespect across virtually every team in the league, it’s a problem too large to ignore.

“Television ratings for NFL contests are reportedly down by 7.5 percent compared to this time last year, and many pundits think the protests are one of the main reasons. However, Hager says KOA’s broadcasts, starring new booth-mates Dave Logan and Rick Lewis, haven’t suffered the same fate.

 [Hager] acknowledges that ‘there was a groundswell immediately after [the September protest] happened, but that’s calmed down. Right now, I’m not seeing anything that has me overly concerned.’

Good thing, because iHeartMedia recently launched Orange and Blue Radio, a station at 760 AM that boasts of being all Broncos, all the time. And more kneeling by Denver players could be very bad for business.”

There’s going to come a time very soon when the Broncos and all the other teams who insist on being disrespectful will have to choose between their principles and staying in business. This isn’t an issue that Americans are ready to let go, probably because it’s chipping away at the very foundation of our country’s ability to stay free. The sooner this protest is put to rest, the more likely we will be able to show the rest of the world that those of us with integrity are still indivisible.

BREAKING: Warning Issued To All Americans Overnight Of ‘Mass Casualty’ Event Planned – Here’s What We Know

Published

on

America might be distracted with the problems at hand, but we never forget that we are a country at war. No matter what happens on a day to day basis, we always remember that we as a nation were violently attacked over sixteen years ago and it’s a score that we haven’t settled yet because terrorism hasn’t been wiped out.

The rise of the politically correct movement and it’s acceptance of “non-radical Muslims” has somehow allowed them to worm their way into many places that they shouldn’t be, such as government. That is especially troubling, considering that the threat from the Islamic faith and it’s admonitions to kill is, is far from past.

In fact, according to top administration officials, the smaller attacks that we’ve been seeing in recent months are just a ploy to keep their members appeased while they plan a 9/11 scale attack. Daily Mail  reports that one a U.S. security chief is warning not just all of us, but other countries as well, to be vigilant:

Islamic State fanatics and other terror groups are planning another massive attack on the scale of 9/11, a top US security chief warned today.

Elaine Duke, Donald Trump’s acting Secretary of Homeland Security, said jihadists were using crude knife and van attacks to keep their members engaged and their finances flowing as they plot another ‘big explosion’ similar to the September 2001 atrocities.

Speaking at the US embassy in London, she said intelligence is pointing to extremists plotting to take down planes to inflict mass civilian casualties.”

Elaine Duke, Donald Trump’s acting Secretary of Homeland Security

 

While the United States hasn’t suffered an attack on the same scale as 9/11 since that day, we have watched the terrorists grow both in number and boldness across the globe. Our war on terror in the Middle East might have overthrown some open leaders, but for every open leader that threatens the United States and is eliminated, there are three more willing to take his place in the “holy war crusade.”

“Mrs. Duke said ISIS is currently in an ‘interim’ period focusing on a much bigger endgame.

The security chief, who has served three US presidents, said: ‘The terrorist organisations, be it ISIS or others, want to have the big explosion like they did on 9/11. They want to take down aircraft, the intelligence is clear on that.

‘However, in the interim, they need to keep their finances flowing and they need to keep their visibility high and they need to keep their members engaged, so they are using small plots and they are happy to have small plots.’

She added: ‘Creating terror is their goal and so a van attack, a bladed weapon attack, causes terror and continues to disrupt the world – but does not mean they’ve given up on a major aviation plot.’”

Islamic State fanatics and other terror groups are planning another massive attack on the scale of 9/11, a top US security chief warned

If you’ve gone through airport security lately, you know that the Transportation Security Administration has cracked down on possible threats in a big way since way back in 2001 when we were first faced with this problem. The issue at hand is that no matter how much we increase security, human ingenuity increases with it.

According to Duke, who is President Trump’s acting Secretary of Homeland Security, there’s even a distinct possibility that any plan could be blown up using a laptop, and that’s just one of the many possibilities that she mentioned.

“She said the free movement of goods and people means security has to be tightened in individual countries around the world. 

She said: ‘The laptop is one of the many aviation threats, we will never be comfortable and we will always be evolving.

‘What we believe is that because of the movement of goods and people, we have to raise the baseline worldwide, we can’t only consider our borders.’ Mrs. Duke went on: ‘We think the level of terrorist threat against the United States too is extremely high.

‘I think that it is challenging for you because you have the proximities to other countries, the ease of movement from some of the terrorist safe havens is a little easier for you, but we feel the terrorist threat is very high in the United States.’”

The troubling thing about Duke’s statements isn’t “why or how,” but  when. She believes that another large-scale attack is going to be coming to us soon. We might not see it coming. This is the big reason that the United States, and other free countries like it, need to crack down on potential terrorists

This is the big reason that the United States, and other free countries like it, need to crack down on potential terrorists entering our countries. We can only be free if that freedom is respected; if we don’t protect the freedom, it will be taken either by those who want to kill us or those who want to control us. Either way, the freedom of living in America is a precious gift that is in jeopardy every single day.

Here’s more from our source on what is know about the possible impending attacks:

“Asked how the US is tackling the threat of another 9/11-style atrocity, she said: ‘We have worked on some strong measures that we can’t talk about. We are trying to play the away game and that is working against them in their terrorist safe havens and homes.

‘We do have some terrorist groups on the move, you just saw the take-over of Raqqa and so if we can keep them declining and moving they have less time to sit and prepare.’

Mrs. Duke warned that the number of home-grown violent extremists, mostly inspired by terrorist organisations, is increasing in the US. She said the ability of IS militants to put terrorist propaganda on the internet will appeal more and more to extremists as they are pushed out of Syria and Iraq.

Mrs. Duke said web giants need to do more to detect extremist content online, and one way of doing this could be using the same technology used to identify people in passenger lists.

‘Terrorists are strong, they are adaptable and the terrorist threat is the highest it has been since pre-9/11. We have got to have every tool that’s possible,’ she added.

A total of 2,996 people were killed during the September 11 attacks, when al-Qaeda suicide attackers hijacked planes and flew them into the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington.

Earlier in the day, she met the British interior minister Amber Rudd to discuss how to force internet giants to do more to tackle terrorism ahead of the G7 summit.

Following the recent wave of attacks in Manchester and London, police chiefs have said the threat facing the UK is a ‘new norm’ that will not change. 

Her chilling remarks came 24 hours after MI5 director general Andrew Parker warned Britain is facing its worst-ever terrorist threat in his first major speech since the UK was hit by a wave of attacks. 

The British spy chief said it was taking terrorists just days to hatch plots as violent extremists exploit ‘safe spaces online’ to evade detection. 

It is harder for the UK to protect itself because of its proximity to other countries and the ease of movement from terrorist safe havens, she suggested.”

BAD News For Nasty Libs After Odd Woman Who Keeps Popping Up In Melania’s Shadow Is Identified

Published

on

Anywhere Melania Trump goes, photographers are sure to follow, hoping to catch her in a moment or position that they can use against her. While she’s been seen in multiple photos lately while out and about looking flawless, cameras have also caught someone else frequently in her shadows, popping up in many places where the first lady happens to be. Now nasty liberals who eagerly await a public slip up just got some really bad news about this mystery person after she’s been identified as to who she really is.

There’s nothing that our incredible first lady can do that is right to a liberal. Since they can never find anything to slam her for, they create it just to discredit her. That’s coming back to bite them after starting a disgusting rumor about a woman planted in Melania’s shadow, who has been caught in many pictures over the last few months.

It’s no secret that the Trump’s security detail is at least double that of what the Obamas had while in office, and even other presidents before then. This isn’t because they want a glutenous amount of protection for egotistical purposes, but because it’s absolutely imperative given the vicious and relentless nature of the left. In no other presidency in history has casual conversation about assassination and other actionable threats been treated as anything less than the crime it is, but has been tolerated, even accepted with the Trumps. It’s for this reason that the extra protection is necessary but hasn’t stopped crazy liberals from doing what they want.

Among the many rumors that have been created and circulated about the first family, the latest conspiracy theory conjured up about Melania is probably the most ridiculous yet. As if to assert that Melania is not capable or confident enough to do her job as First Lady or that President Trump would prefer someone different, online sleuths have asserted that Melania has a body double she relies on. Their “proof” is a plethora of pictures where the see what they claim to be a body double of hers in a woman who allegedly has a striking similarity to the First Lady and is always just a few feet behind her.

The Daily Mail reports:

“Conspiracy theorists are suggesting that Melania Trump has a body double who appears alongside the President in public wearing a fake nose and giant sunglasses. The claims sent social media into overdrive on Wednesday with ‘Melania’ quickly becoming a trending topic on Twitter.”

“Critics zeroed in on footage of Trump from Friday as he addressed the media about hurricane relief for Puerto Rico that showed the First Lady, wearing her large black sunglasses, standing behind her husband nodding.”

The clip in question has not been publicly addressed but the claim also coincides with several shots of a woman in Melania’s shadows on the tarmac and in the street as she goes about her business. Liberals speculate that this supposed body double follows the first lady around to step into place as her if need be. However, they couldn’t be more wrong and ridiculous.

The First Lady is surrounded by Secret Service at all times when she’s in public, for obvious reasons, and one agent in her detail is a woman who happens to have brown hair and wear heels. They say that she has a striking resemblance to Melania and question why her Secret Service agent would look like her when they look nothing alike other than some very basic physical traits. They are simply using this in an effort to discredit her capabilities of fulfilling her role, especially with the clip of the supposed body double by Donald Trump’s side in his speech on the lawn. Even bigger than that, it’s a tool to slam Trump’s credibility saying that if he would put a fake Melania at his side “what else is he hiding.”

As the rumors about the body double in the particular video clip mounted with a vengeance, what liberals forgot to include in their conspiracy theory is all the pictures from this same incident which actually prove it was Melania. She took her glasses off at one point and walks around interacting with her husband and others, clearly proving that it’s her and she was the one there all along. The facts aren’t for those who want to believe there was something dishonest going on. It’s funny that the left will microfocus on something as asinine as this, but completely ignore and even dispute the obvious lies and disguises within their own party. It’s not the Trumps who are trying to pull one over on the American people, Democrats do that.
