Shocker: Democratic Pennsylvania Mayor Refuses to Fly the Gay Pride Flag, & He Has His Reasons

Westlake Legal Group wall-2794569_1280-620x413 Shocker: Democratic Pennsylvania Mayor Refuses to Fly the Gay Pride Flag, & He Has His Reasons Uncategorized Front Page Stories

 

 

Surprise, Democrats!

This one was unexpected…

In Reading, Pennsylvania, the mayor’s refused to let a Gay Pride flag fly over City Hall.

And why? Because, he claims, it would send a non-impartial political message.

The Reading Eagle reports:

Dozens of people were ready to make history Monday evening by raising the pride flag over City Hall for the first time, but Mayor Wally Scott had a different idea.

Scott prohibited City Council and city employees from allowing the flag, which recognizes Reading’s Pride Celebration for people in the LGBTQ community, to be raised minutes before the event was set to start. It was to be flown until Sunday.

Council President Jeffrey S. Waltman Sr. was informed of Wally’s decision just minutes before arriving to City Hall. And he tried to get the Mayor to change his mind.

But no dice.

Jeffrey explained:

“He has concerns for flying a flag for one specific cause because it could raise questions.”

The Mayor’s position raises a good question — should the city take sides on each particular position as its flag is proposed to be hailed overhead, or should the government stick to only for-everyone flags representing the collective nation, its veterans, etc?

But Jeffrey wasn’t happy. He even tried to get Wally to put it up for just a few hours.

“The Mayor stated he supports the group, the cause but had concerns about raising the flag.”

Acting Managing Director Osmer Deming further crystallized the issue:

“[Wally’s] position is that he does not support flags being up that support political movements, and he views that as a political movement.”

Councilwoman Donna Reed (not that one) was downright ticked off. She stood on the steps and proclaimed, “This is the ‘People’s Mayor,’ everyone. Just not all of us people.”

How does it mean he isn’t the mayor for people who wanna fly the Pride flag just because he doesn’t wanna fly the Pride flag?

Donna knows how. And she wasn’t taking it. She suggested the group march down to the Mayor’s hangout and really stick it to him. Therefore, this:

Wally wasn’t there.

Citizen Ernie Schlegel’s hot about the situation.

More from that Eagle that Reads:

“Our flag is being kept off the pole. I’m going to be talking to the human relations commission about this and see if we have a stand for discrimination.”

Schlegel said City Council put in place the commission in 2009 as a way to investigate discrimination.

“Here we are 10 years later,” Schlegel said.

Michelle Dech, executive director of the LGBT Center of Greater Reading, was peeved, too:

“This is a huge disappointment today, not just for those of us here, but all of us in the community, ” Dech said. “Raising this flag to make history, and it’s really disappointing and sad.”

Ben Renkus, vice president of the center and president of Reading Pride Celebration, said the community still needs to fight for its rights.

“It goes to show us we still have a lot of work to do,” Renkus said. “Even in a city that has ordinances to protect our rights, we have to fight for those.

So what kind of flags have previously waved from the city’s huge pole? As per TRE, that’d be the POW/MIA flag, the French flag, and banners representing the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico.

Will the rainbow flag ever fly from Reading’s most prized place? Could be. But for some folks, it won’t be soon enough.

Trump Supporter Miss Michigan Responds to the Stripping of Her Crown Over Charges of Racism & Islamophobia

Westlake Legal Group crown-1701934_1280-620x412 Trump Supporter Miss Michigan Responds to the Stripping of Her Crown Over Charges of Racism & Islamophobia Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

 

 

As covered by RedState’s Bonchie, Miss Michigan was stripped of her Miss World America crown this week. The reason? She’s allegedly racist, insensitive, and Islamophobic.

See for yourself — I encourage you to read all of the below:

Kathy Zhu is…brace yourself, because I’m about to use this term accurately and apolitically, which you may not have heard in a while…an immigrant.

Her family moved to the U.S. when she was 5.

But the minority immigrant has been attacked online.

In response, Kathy posted a video via social media.

Here’s some of what she had to say:

“I just want to say thank you for all your support. It’s been a heck of a two days, honestly. Yesterday I was crying when I first saw the messages and emails from the organization, but today is a new day, and today was amazing.”

Kathy noted the news story really is a tale of discrimination, but not as Miss World America believes:

“I’m so glad the story got brought into the public eye and the media because this is so much bigger than pageantry; this is about an organization discriminating against people with different opinions, calling people ‘racist’ even when they’re not.”

Kathy’s into words:

“Little attacks like those really, really diminish the value and the truth of the word ‘racism.’ There shouldn’t just be diversity of skin color, there should be diversity of thought, of mindset, of political affiliation.”

Say it ain’t so!

She’s also that worst of all creatures: a Trump supporter.

But Kathy’s proud to take up the mantle:

“I’m so glad to be the voice for this right now and I hope that other pageant organizations could really learn from this story and the situation, to not discriminate with others based on opinions. Don’t worry, I’ll still stand firm, stand my ground. I’m still going to continue to fight for what I believe in.”

Watch the full video below, and let us all know what you think in the Comments section.

We’ve reached a very strange place when politics reaches this deeply into a beauty pageant.

Trump Fries the Freshmen Fab Four: They’re Not ‘Capable of Loving Our Country’

President Donald Trump speaks to reporters on the North Lawn of the White House, Friday, June 15, 2018, in Washington. (AP Photo/Evan Vucci)

 

 

On Sunday, Trump sounded off on the congressional Freshmen Fab Four, otherwise known as Ayanna Pressley, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and fartfighting Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (here and here).

His message: Essentially, they stink.

The President asserted the Quad Squad are incapable of being patriotic; oh — and they’re destroying their party.

“I don’t believe the four Congresswomen are capable of loving our Country. They should apologize to America (and Israel) for the horrible (hateful) things they have said. They are destroying the Democrat Party, but are weak & insecure people who can never destroy our great Nation!”

Trump’s post comes, of course, at the end of a long line of hullabaloo, including the Fresh Face Caucus fighting Nancy Pelosi (here), Donald defending Nancy (here), then the Commander-in-Chief welcoming the far-left congresswomen to go back from whence they came (here). That last turn took the whole hubbub to that place where all things in American politics end up: notions of racism.

But some think The Donald’s move was ingenious (here).

Either way, New York’s most eccentric billionaire sure knows how to generate press: As reported by The Daily Caller, Axios revealed that, in the week ending July 14th, all Democratic candidates combined generated only 6.5 million social media interactions. That’s the fewest since January.

How’d ball-hog Trump do? A clean 23.2.

And Trump keeps Trumping away…

There’s a New Joint in Town: West Hollywood Gets America’s First Cannabis Restaurant

Westlake Legal Group marijuana-1910560_1280-620x310 There’s a New Joint in Town: West Hollywood Gets America’s First Cannabis Restaurant Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

 

 

If you’re in the Los Angeles area and looking for a relaxing restaurant, you should check out Lowell Farms — they have great weed.

Or, at least, they will soon.

That’s right — In a history-making move, West Hollywood’s Business License Commission has approved the United States of America’s first cannabis restaurant.

The joint joint will open its doors at 1201 N. La Brea Avenue — right across the street from a synagogue, which sometimes holds events in its outdoor area. The house of worship wasn’t too thrilled about a place dedicated to He Who Sits on High being butted — or, budded — up against an establishment devoted to He Who Sits High, so a rabbi at Tuesday’s meeting requested the license be rejected.

But that plan went to pot.

So what’s the new WeHo eaterie — or, weederie — gonna be like?

Well, here’s partly why the rabbi was concerned.

As reported by Patch.com:

Lowell Farms: A Cannabis Cafe will be an open-air restaurant…and promises cannabis cuisine and a smoking area.

Though, to be fair:

[Lowell]  promised an air filtration system like the one used in casinos to gain unanimous approval from the city.

And it’s just in time for the trend of green, leafy vegetables — a recent survey by the National Restaurant Association revealed that plant-based ingredients are currently all the rage. That includes cannabis and CBD — of the 650 chefs who took part, 75% named cannabis/CBD-infused goodies as the #2 most popular fad. The #1? Cannabis-infused drinks.

We’ve certainly come a long way from Reefer Madness (which I’m embedding below; check it out — it’s absolutely hilarious).

Lowell Farms will be in good company — in nearby Hollywood, Weedmaps is prepping for their August opening of the Museum of Weed.

According to Patch, this’ll be its 7 exhibits:

● Pre-Prohibition: Depicts the early history of the many uses of cannabis and hemp.
● Age Of Madness: Provides a visual look at the hysteria perpetuated by prohibition.
● Counterculture Revolution: Explores cannabis’ journey into the fabric of the 60s, from the hippie culture to activism.
● Behind Closed Doors: Takes visitors to the start of the war on drugs, when Richard Nixon introduced the DEA, and the people responded with foundations like NORML.
● Entrapment: Delves into the Reagan years and the government-driven propaganda that led to systematic mass incarceration of minorities.
● Dose of Compassion: Shows how the AIDS epidemic drove California’s ballot measure to legalize medical marijuana through a slice of life story.
● Legalization: A look at how both medicinal and recreational cannabis reform has evolved over the last decade and how pop culture has aided in normalizing cannabis.
● The Plant Lab: An interactive exhibit that explores everything from cannabinoids to terpenes and the latest technology and breakthrough medical research that can help shape the future of the plant and its role in society.

So there ya go.

If you’re in LA and you’ve got the munchies — or want them — head on over to Lowell Farms. I hear its Yelp score is very, very high.

Bong Appètit!

And Up We Go: LA’s Homeless Sue the City for Its Property-Destroying Street Sweeps

Westlake Legal Group AP_1602261913331116-620x398 And Up We Go: LA’s Homeless Sue the City for Its Property-Destroying Street Sweeps Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

A city worker uses a power washer to clean the sidewalk by a tent city along Division Street Friday, Feb. 26, 2016, in San Francisco. Homeless people have until the end of Friday to vacate a rambling tent city along a busy San Francisco street declared a health hazard by city officials earlier this week. The mayor’s office says about 40 tents remain, down from a high of 140 tents this winter. The tents have lined both sides of a street under a freeway overpass for months, drawing complaints from residents and businesses. (AP Photo/Eric Risberg)

 

 

LA has a problem.

Well, okay — it has thousands of problems.

But one of them is the rampant increase of people camping out — and crapping out(side) — on the streets.

Earlier in the month, I covered Victor Davis Hanson’s statement to Tucker Carlson that LA’s helped make California the nation’s first Third World state (here).

And recently, the laser-sharp minds in the Los Angeles government decided one way to address the homeless problem was to cancel bench warrants for anyone dwelling externally (here).

Yep — that’ll really give the issue a bit of What For.

Well, the homeless have just stepped up to a new rung of empowerment: They’re suing the city.

Seven homeless people have filed a federal lawsuit, claiming LA’s committed unlawful seizure and destruction of their property. During street sweeping, that is.

The suit insists the city has unconstitutionally employed its municipal code in order “to justify the ongoing practice of seizing and destroying homeless people’s critically important belongings—including tents, medications, important documents, and other items they need to survive on the streets.”

What documents are needed to survive on the streets?

The suit was announced at a news conference Thursday. One of the plaintiffs — Janet Garcia — told the press she had to perpetually repurchase goods because of the city’s crappiness:

“I have to buy my own supplies, and I always have to start over because they come and they sweep and they take everything from me. I can’t get out of the hole that I’m in because they keep putting me back at square one.”

Someone should tell her about the city’s homeless shelters and job programs to get help her back on her feet. Given their existence, it seems perhaps odd that anyone would want to live outdoors.

But for those in the elements, cleaning is the enemy.

And there was in fact a major cleanup drive just recently — on July 1st, the area near the LA Civic Center received, in the words of CBSLA, a “summer scrub.”

From KCAL9:

People living on the street near Los Angeles City Hall were notified in advance of the cleanup effort with flyers that were posted on light poles in the area. The flyers said the major cleaning would include sidewalks, alleys, parks, beach, parking lots and other public access areas.

Any property left behind, except for anything that was an immediate threat to public health or safety, trash or evidence of a crime or contraband, would be collected by the city and kept in a secure location for up to 90 days.

As reported, the cleanups are an effort to get the homeless off the street. However, one day later, the tents were back.

Some people are looking to alternative means in the fight over LA’s vagabondage: Fed-up residents are petitioning for a recall of Mayor Eric Garcetti (here).

In the meantime, seven bold Angelenos have risen up and raised their voices to fight for their rights.

#Resist.

Florida Woman Jailed for Trying to Stab Someone Who Wouldn’t Give Her a Slice of Pizza – Like Normal

Westlake Legal Group pizza-3007395_1280-620x413 Florida Woman Jailed for Trying to Stab Someone Who Wouldn’t Give Her a Slice of Pizza – Like Normal Violence Uncategorized st. augustine pizza Front Page Stories Florida Featured Story de'erica cooks Culture crime

 

 

Pizza! Pizza!

Sometimes, ya just gotta have it.

As did a woman in Florida Tuesday, according to a police report.

Here’s the alleged tale:

22-year-old De’Erica Cooks was jonesin’ for a slice.

She asked an unidentified woman for a piece of cheesy, breaded goodness, and the woman replied, “No.”

That was absolutely unacceptable.

I mean extremely unacceptable.

Therefore, according to witnesses, De’Erica responded the normal way: While wielding a steak knife, she declared, “I’m going to cut you.”

As reported by The St. Augustine Record:

The woman who was threatened by Cooks told the [St. Johns Sheriff’s Office] that Cooks then tried to attack her with the knife and that she feared for her life.

A guy present had to go all Little Seize-Her:

A man in the house was able to wrestle the knife away from Cooks…

De’Erica wasn’t going out like that:

[B]ut she grabbed another one, according to the report. Cooks told investigators she does not remember much during her fit of anger, the report states.

De’Erica’s been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill.

She’s also being charged — by me — with Really, Really Loving Pizza.

If you’d like to invite her over for an extra-large Domino’s, you’re welcome to pony up a grand and a half: She’s being held on $1500 bond.

But a word of advice: Buy her her own extra large; you don’t wanna end up fighting over the last piece.

Don’t make her hangry; you wouldn’t like her when she’s hangry.

On the Apollo 11 Anniversary, Mike Pence Announces: We’re Moving to the Moon, & Next is a New Planet

Uncategorized Space Science Neil Armstrong NASA Mike Pence Michael Collins John F. Kennedy Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump Culture Buzz Aldrin Apollo 11 Allow Media Exception

 

 

1969’s moon landing changed the world. It took the great expanse and made it reachable. It turned the unfathomable into a reality. Since the beginning of humanity, men and women had surely stared wondrously at the mysterious blanket above. How could anyone have believed that, one day, a human being’s feet would make their imprint into that seemingly-forever-away orb?

In an opinion piece for Fox News by Mike Pence Saturday, the Vice President celebrated the 50th anniversary of the historic Apollo 11 triumph.

“In that moment,” Mike wrote, “Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins helped our nation win the ‘space race,’ answering the call made by President John F. Kennedy just eight years before to ‘put a man on the moon’ before the decade was out.”

Trump’s righthand man thanked “the courage, grit and determination of the three space pioneers of Apollo 11 – and the hard work of the men and women behind their mission at NASA…”

And he praised the current Commander-in-Chief for continuing the country’s unifying outer-space spirit:

“The crew of Apollo 11 did more than plant a flag and leave a footprint – they brought our world together.

“Unity is the true legacy of Apollo 11 – and we must capture that same unity in our own day by renewing our commitment to American leadership in space.

“Under President Trump, we are doing just that.”

Mr Pence championed the enterprising pursuits of the White House:

“[W]e’ve unleashed American companies that are on the cutting edge of the space industry – developing the rockets, spaceships, and technologies that will take us further into space, faster than ever before.

“And thanks to our administration’s decisive actions, America’s pioneering space companies are creating the American jobs of the future and blazing new trails into the skies above.”

Mike had something big to tell America: We’ll soon be back walking on the moon. And this time, we’re stayin’:

“So to continue the proud tradition established in the Apollo program, and to ensure that our most cherished values prevail in the skies above, President Trump has made it our national policy to return to the moon in the next five years – and this time, we will stay.”

Not only that, but there’ll soon be a lady doing her best Michael Jackson — moonwalking.

And there’s more: Following our moon move, the U.S. is making its way to a little place I like to call Mars:

“The first woman and the next man on the moon will both be American astronauts, launched by American rockets, from American soil. The United States will lead the creation of a base at the moon’s South Pole where astronauts could reside for weeks and months. And from what we learn there, we will become the first nation in the history of mankind to set foot on the red planet of Mars.”

Mike put his most (vice) presidential foot forward. “The tasks before us will involve hardship and hazard, sacrifice and determination,” he noted. “But we shall go forth – not in spite of the difficulties, but because of them.”

He makes the current administration sound downright inspiring — not at all the characterization by the mainstream media, the effects of which can be seen here.

For all you space fans, buckle up: As per our VP, the future’s lookin’ like Duck Dogers.

Nearly 50 ‘Undocumented’ People Storm a Texas Port of Entry; Agents Are Forced to Use Tear Gas

Westlake Legal Group tree-branch-snow-winter-light-fence-1001300-pxhere.com_-620x465 Nearly 50 ‘Undocumented’ People Storm a Texas Port of Entry; Agents Are Forced to Use Tear Gas washington D.C. US Border Control Agents Uncategorized u.s. customs and border protection Texas pharr-reynosa international bridge Illegal Immigration Government Front Page Stories Featured Story democrats Border Wall Funding

 

 

On early Saturday, nearly 50 “undocumented individuals” stormed a port of entry at the Texas border. Agents with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection had to employ tear gas and pepper spray to stop the mob.

The melee occurred around 4 a.m. at the Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge, which is closed regularly between 12 and 6 a.m.

Despite the nightly closure, CBP had been forced to place temporary barriers in order to resist the hefty number of folks trying to make their way across.

As told to Fox by a border official, Saturday’s rush came in three waves.

The bridge-breaching brood even tore down the razor wire:

“Ignoring commands to stop, the group suddenly rushed the temporary barricades, bent metal poles and disabled the concertina wire affixed to the barrier.”

Some dudes assaulted the agents and began grabbing at their weapons. Note: That’s an easy way to get shot. I’m surprised only pepper spray was involved.

“Several males in the group disregarded commands to stop and physically pushed through the barriers. When confronted by CBP officers, the combative individuals began assaulting the officers by punching, kicking, and attempting to grab the officers’ protective devices.”

Two men are being charged with “interference,” as per Fox. Fourteen others are looking at pending federal charges.

The bridge reopened at 8 a.m.

The effort to overtake the bridge comes at the end of several days’ battle between Trump and the Freshman Fab Four (here), initiated by the congresswomen’s opposition to Nancy Pelosi over border funding (here).

AOC and crew want to fight the power of security to the south. Meanwhile, America’s crisis continues.

Georgetown Students Recoil at Trump’s Racist Statement on Immigration – Until They Find Out Obama Said It (Video)

Sometimes people hate what Trump says…until they find out Obama said it.

Same goes for does and did — “kids in cages,” anyone?

Following the President’s recent plan to deport specific illegal immigrants who’ve refused their court order to go home voluntarily, Campus Reform’s Cabot Phillips took a trip to Georgetown University to get the students’ take on a citizenship crackdown.

But there was a bit of the ol’ prank: Cabot used a statement made by Barack instead of Adol — I mean, Donald.

Here’s the liberal icon’s quote:

“We are a nation of laws. Undocumented workers broke our immigration laws, and I believe that they must be held accountable. Especially those who may be dangerous. That’s why over the past six years, deportations of criminals are up 80 percent. And that’s why we’re going to keep focusing on threats to our security.”

Quite the contrast to mayors in NYC and LA — they’ve vowed to fight the federal power (here, here, and here).

When asked, the youngsters at Georgetown responded the way you might expect — they called out the white supremacy, nationalism (which, it should be noted, is not an inherently negative term — it’s the putting first of one’s own country), and xenophobia.

One apt pupil replied, “This was really awful.”

Another, apparently not understanding — perhaps thanks to the media — the meaning of “immigration” (here and here), remarked, “I think that’s a bad decision because, like, the United States should be open to immigrants.”

A particularly stalwart student, after having been presented with the reality, was hit with, “Do you think it’s still a practice of white nationalism to deport criminal illegal aliens?”

Cue the sound of cognitive dissonance:

“I think the way Trump’s doing it is.”

And there ya go.

One guy had, in my view, a level-headed reaction:

“I mean, it just shows the hypocrisy in politics. One person can say something five years ago, and next thing you know, it doesn’t apply to them anymore. And they can now be the morality police for whoever is in charge now.”

Nicely done.

Ready for Obama’s toxic racism?

Have you seen the trailer for Universal’s silver screen version of Andrew Lloyd Weber’s Broadway biggie Cats?

The feline film is coming to a theater near you, and some online are noting the project’s creepiness. Select cinemaphiles are even likening the kitty cult colossus’s movie manifestation to a horror flick.

See for yourself:



Check out some of the responses — including those of a few celebrities:

From The Office’s Dwight:

Bette Midler got in a political jab:

Here’s a reference to another movie which you must see — the absolutely hilarious What We Do in the Shadows:

Given the trailer’s nod to nightmares, director Jordan Peele shared a version of the clip overlaid with the music from his horror hit Us — which I highly recommend you see and then read all about afterward — the theories online go deep. Here’s the re-scored version. Let me know what you think. See if it gets your motor running (and tell me if you liked Us):
