Black Rifle Coffee has become popular with conservatives thanks to its pro-firearm, pro-military, pro-police, and anti-liberal messaging. But was it all a show? Did this veteran-founded coffee company simply put on a show to make money? It sure seems so, as Black Rifle Coffee has turned on conservatives, calling all sorts of horrific things.

“How do you build a cool, kind of irreverent, pro-Second Amendment, pro-America brand in the MAGA era without doubling down on the MAGA movement and also not being called a [expletive] RINO by the MAGA guys?” Evan Hafer, one of the company’s founders, asked in a recent interview with the New York Times. “I would never want my brand to be represented in that way, shape or form, because that’s not me.” Hafer then called patriot groups like the Proud Boys, whom he likened to white supremacists, racists.

“The racism [expletive] really pisses me off,” Hafer says. “I hate racist, Proud Boy-ish people. Like, I’ll pay them to leave my customer base. I would gladly chop all of those people out of my [expletive] customer database and pay them to get the [expletive] out.”

Naturally, this about-face has not been popular with conservatives, who know that loving America and wanting what’s best for your country does not make you a racist:

“It’s such a repugnant group of people. It’s like the worst of American society, and I got to flush the toilet of some of those people that kind of hijacked portions of the brand,” Hafer says.

Black Rifle Coffee is just the latest company to sell out its alleged conservative values to please the leftist media and Democrats. When will it all end? When can a company express its values without being bullied into backtracking — or when can we trust a company to not falsely express certain values in its quest for the almighty dollar.

Joe Biden’s border crisis has increased crime in border crossing areas, the spread of COVID from infected illegals flooding across the border, and numerous other problems. Cartels are increasing human and drug trafficking operations and operating in broad daylight. The situation is worse than many wish to admit — but one Arizona sheriff has spoken out about the issue, calling Joe Biden’s border crisis “an epidemic.”

During an appearance on Fox and Friends, Cochise County Sheriff Mark Dannels explained how much damage Biden is doing to the country.

“It should be a concern to every American. Right now in this country, we had over 200,000 getaways,” Dannels says. “What that means is they’ve been seen on federal cameras but were not captured.”

“And that’s what’s being seen. 200,000 in my sector of the state, my region of the state over 60,000. And then you look at every day on the southwest border, 1,100 getaways are coming into our country every day,” he says. “We have no idea who they are. They’re camouflaged. They’re smuggled by the cartels and released in communities. That is a public safety national security threat.” But he didn’t stop there. He says that Biden’s created an “epidemic” by leaving the border wide open:

I think every elected leader should pay a political price on this issue. The fact is, we take an oath of office and that is to safeguard the quality of life Americans expect and to protect all Americans. And we’re not doing that right now on the southwest border. It’s the largest crime scene, I’ve said that numerous times, that when it comes to public safety, national security, in my county, nobody has walked up to me and said, ‘Sheriff, the border thing’s good.’ Nobody’s said that… I mean, it is an epidemic in my state that we have a border that’s not secure.

The problems at the border won’t be fixed overnight — or by this administration. That’s why it’s important for us to retake Congress in 2022 and to win the White House in 2024.

Many are considering backing Florida governor Rick DeSantis for President in 2024. While he is an excellent leader who has stepped up to defend Floridians from government overreach not just with COVID, but with many Democrat plans. Recently, DeSantis won a straw poll at CPAC, narrowly edging out President Trump. But despite his popularity, the idea of Donald Trump running against Joe Biden after all the corruption in the 2020 election has been revealed is an idea that makes many Americans happy — and there are numerous reasons why Trump should run in 2024.

Many have floated the idea of President Trump running for Congress in his home state of Florida in 2022. If we retake the House, this would likely result in Trump replacing crooked Nancy Pelosi as Speaker. And if we retake the Senate, we can fully defend against anything Joe Biden and the Democrats throw at us. This, of course, would not interfere with President Trump running for President in 2024. It would just give him more opportunities to remind Americans why he’s the right man for the job. So, why should Trump run in 2024?

Jobs, Jobs, Jobs

Before Americans began running scared about COVID and our economy suffered, President Trump managed to increase jobs in America by a lot — over three times the numbers projected by the government’s top experts.

Under Trump, the unemployment rate dropped to 3.5 percent. The median household income rose to the highest levels since the Great Recession of 2015. On average, middle-class families enjoyed an additional $6,000 per year. Though COVID-19 ruined all of the progress we made under Trump, if we ignore those special circumstances, President Trump was better for the economy than any President since Ronald Reagan.

In fact, jobless claims under Trump his a 50-year low. This stretched across every demographic, including  African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Asian Americans, Native Americans, veterans, people with disabilities, women, and even people without a high school diploma.

Trump Can Handle A Crisis

It’s no secret that the Coronavirus created a disaster we have not seen in our lifetimes. President Trump handled it magnificently. Once we knew what China had unleashed on the world, President Trump leaped into action. He suspended all travel from China, required Americans who were returning home from COVID hotspots to undergo screening and quarantine. He restricted travel to areas where COVID presented a major threat, issued travel advisories, closed the borders, and generally kept America safe from outside threats.

Trump swiftly pulled together teams of experts to keep COVID from spreading. He declared a national emergency, established a 24/7 FEMA National Response Coordination Center. He used emergency authorizations to repurpose factories to develop personal protective equipment, and coordinated emergency response to the virus nationwide. He also made sure that testing for the virus happened nationwide, helping further keep it from spreading.

President Trump’s actions reduced COVID deaths from a projected 2.2 million to a tiny fraction of that. cut off funding to the World Health Organization once it became clear that it was in China’s pocket, and demanded that the world hold China responsible for releasing this virus on the world. He got Americans back to work and helped the country heal from Democrat-led shutdowns. Overall, his response to COVID-19 is a major reason President Trump should run in 2024.

The Border

Border security was perhaps one of President Trump’s most important issues. While Joe Biden is inviting illegals to pour across, spreading COVID and increasing crime rats in popular border crossing areas, Trump did the opposite. Illegals say that they would not be coming across if Trump was still President — and there are many reasons for this.

President Trump build over 400 miles of border wall to keep illegals from crossing, reducing illegal crossings by almost 90 percent. This effort was helped along by his decision to deploy almost 5,000 troops to the southern border and his ability to convince Mexico to also deploy tens of thousands of soldiers and national guardsmen to protect their side of the border. He ended Catch-and-Release.

President Trump, unlike Biden, ensured that immigration laws were followed. He signed an executive order to strip federal funding from sanctuary cities. He deported illegals quickly and effectively. Under Trump, the United States prosecuted a record number of immigration crimes. President Trump has done more to keep our nation safe from criminal gangs than any previous President.

These are just a few of the many, many reasons Trump should run in 2024. Under Joe Biden and the Democrats, we are losing the respect of world leaders. Americans are suffering. Our border security has almost completely collapsed. It’s time to bring America back to a state of prominence in the world. And with another term of President Trump’s presidency, we can truly make America great again.

The government is lying to you. The media is lying to you. Leftist social media personalities? They’re also lying to you. While we have been spoon-fed a story that Congress was evacuated because the peaceful protesters (or violent terrorists if you listen to the garbage the media puts out) at the Capitol were on a bloodthirsty mission to assassinate the Squad, Pelosi, and anyone who got in the way, the real reason that Congress was evacuated may shock you.

The government has steadfastly refused to release footage showing the truth of what was going on. Now we know why — the story they are telling us and have been telling us for months is a lie. The real reason Congress was evacuated doesn’t even seem to have anything to do with conservatives. The truth is that the evacuation had nothing to do with the “mob” of people peacefully wandering the halls where unarmed veteran Ashli Babbitt was shot in cold blood. It was a pipe bomb left by a man who has never been caught. And the pipe bomb? It was at RNC headquarters — the strangest place for right-wing “terrorists” to want to attack.

It’s no secret. We’ve known about this since January. The Hill reported at the time:

A pipe bomb was found at Republican National Committee (RNC) headquarters just blocks away from the U.S. Capitol and the nearby headquarters of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) was evacuated after a suspicious package was discovered there. 

The discoveries were reported by The New York Times on Wednesday afternoon as a mob of President Trump’s supporters stormed the Capitol, a chaotic and violent scene that prompted the evacuation of lawmakers, congressional staffers, reporters and others. 

According to the Times’s reporting, the pipe bomb at the RNC headquarters was destroyed by a bomb squad, while the suspicious package found at the DNC offices has not yet been identified. 

The explosive found at the RNC headquarters and the evacuation of the DNC headquarters added to the chaos that unfolded as members of Congress met to certify President-elect Joe Biden’s Electoral College win. 

The attempted bomber is still at large and the media is still lying to you. Strange, that the government can track down peaceful protesters but can’t find a single bomber.

When Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and other social media websites began cracking down on thought crime — also known as the horrific act of being a conservative and daring to express conservative ideas — it became clear that the goal was to silence the Right. Though President Trump has spoken out against such garbage ideology, the Biden administration has wholeheartedly embraced the idea that conservatives should not be allowed out in public, online or off.

White House Propaganda Minister Jen Psaki says that the Biden Administration is actively censoring conservatives on government social media posts. “We’ve increased disinformation research and tracking within the Surgeon General’s office,” Psaki said Thursday. “We’re flagging problematic posts for Facebook that spread disinformation.”

But on Friday, she took things even further, telling Americans that the administration that allegedly is unifying them things that half the population should be banned from all social media.

“You shouldn’t be banned from one platform and not others if you providing ‘misinformation’ out there,” Psaki said.

“For how long has the administration been spying on people’s Facebook profiles?” a Fox News reporter asked. Psaki replied that this “was quite a loaded and inaccurate question which I would refute.”

In other words, Psaki says that if you post what the government calls “misinformation” on any platform, all the others should remove you as well. This is not only a violation of Americans’ First Amendment rights, but it’s a slap in the face to everyone who has ever believed that the Biden Administration has ever sought to do anything but stifle and censor any thought that doesn’t fit in with the Left’s twisted vision of what America should be. Watch it below:

If there’s one thing that can be said about the Biden administration, it’s that they are willing to condemn American conservatives at every turn. They call us terrorists. They call us monsters. They accuse us of everything under the sub. But Communists? That’s where they balk. On Wednesday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki refused to condemn Communism in Cuba.

Though Biden has been praised by the American media for taking a “tougher tone” toward Cuba, the truth is that he hasn’t mentioned Communism a single time in any statement released on the protests currently going on in the country.

Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel says that the nationwide protests are a U.S. plot to “fracture” the Communist party. But the truth is that citizens are simply rejecting Communism. The Guardian reports:

In a televised address on Monday morning Díaz-Canel, who recently succeeded Raúl Castro as the Communist party’s top figure, painted the protests as part of a United States-backed, social media-driven plot to stir up public discontent and overthrow the Cuban regime.

“The approach wasn’t peaceful yesterday,” the 61-year-old politician claimed, criticising the “completely vulgar” behaviour of some demonstrators who he accused of throwing rocks at police and destroying cars. Díaz-Canel conceded other protesters had legitimate concerns over food shortages and blackouts, although he blamed those problems on US sanctions. “It’s legitimate to feel dissatisfaction,” the party’s powerful first secretary said in the broadcast.

Rogelio Polanco Fuentes, a top party official who runs its ideology department, denounced the protests as part of a well-funded US-sponsored effort to create “instability and chaos” in Cuba, which is currently experiencing its worst economic slump in decades as well as a worsening Covid crisis.

In a presser in which she defended Texas Democrats’ decision to flee the state to block a vote on an election integrity bill, Psaki roundly refused to reject or even criticize Communism, which has torn Cuba apart for decades and decades.

“Do you think the people are leaving Cuba because they don’t like communism?” she was asked.

 “We think people are leaving Cuba or protesting in the streets as well because they’re opposed to the oppression, to the mismanagement of the government in the country; and we certainly support their right to protest, we support their efforts to speak out against their treatment in Cuba,” she says. Watch it below:

William Barr is increasingly being proven to be a wolf in sheep’s clothing. The latest example of him betraying President Trump comes from a former U.S. Attorney in Pennsylvania, who sent President Trump a letter claiming that Barr blocked an election investigation in his state.

Former U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, William McSwain, told the President that Barr had asked him not to make the public aware of any “election irregularities.” McSwain told the President he “disagreed with that decision,” but that he was just following orders:

“On Election Day and afterwards, our Office received various allegations of voter fraud and election irregularities,” McSwain’s letter tells President Trump. “As part of my responsibilities as U.S. Attorney, I wanted to be transparent with the public and, of course, investigate fully any allegations.”

” Attorney General Barr, however, instructed me not to make any public statements or put out any press releases regarding possible election irregularities,” the letter says. “I was also given a directive to pass along serious allegations to the State Attorney General for investigation – the same State Attorney General who had already declared that you could not win.”

McSwain has definitely prosecuted — and won — election fraud cases in his state related to the 2020 election. But his orders from Barr were to not talk about them. Seems a strange order from the Attorney General, but it’s understandable when one considers that Barr has always been corrupt.

Barr is just another reminder that swamp creatures still persist in government despite Trump’s best efforts to get rid of them. Remember that when voting in 2022 and 2024.

The FDA has granted emergency authorization to COVID-19 vaccines, but full approval may be some time off. With Democrats talking about vaccine mandates and actively excluding the unvaccinated from society, the latest FDA COVID announcement reminds us that vaccines still need to be studied: The Johnson and Johnson vaccine can increase risk of a rare nerve disorder.

Many are choosing to wait to get vaccinated until the vaccines can be fully studied. Some have reservations about ingredients, health risks, religious reasons to abstain, and more. But all Democrats talk about is forcing those people to get stuck with a needle. What they don’t want to talk about is the side effects.

The left-leaning New York Times reports that the Johnson and Johnson vaccine can increase one’s chances of developing Guillain–Barré syndrome. This disorder causes the immune system to attack healthy nerves. GBS can cause a variety of issues from mild pain or weakness to a complete inability to breathe on one’s own. Scientists don’t know yet exactly what causes GBS, but the FDA says that the J&J vaccine can greatly increase risk by up to 500 percent:

Although regulators have found that the chances of developing the condition are low, they appear to be three to five times higher among recipients of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine than among the general population in the United States, according to people familiar with the decision. The warning was attached to fact sheets about the vaccine for providers and patients.

Federal officials have identified 100 suspected cases of Guillain-Barré among recipients of Johnson & Johnson’s one-dose shot through a federal monitoring system that relies on patients and health care providers to report adverse effects of vaccines. Ninety-five percent of those cases were considered serious and required hospitalization, the Food and Drug Administration said. The reports are preliminary.

In a statement, the agency said that while “the available evidence suggests an association” between the Johnson & Johnson vaccine and increased risk of Guillain–Barré syndrome, “it is insufficient to establish a causal relationship.”

The FDA says it  “continues to find the known and potential benefits clearly outweigh the known and potential risks” of COVID vaccines.

As we learn the risks of the COVID-19 vaccines, we need to consider that Democrats are trying to force them on us. Getting vaccinated should always be a personal decision made based on a consideration of the risks versus the benefits.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott has a lot of experience dealing with Democrats’ dirty tricks. The latest dirty trick pulled by Texas Democrats is a disappearing act. To kill a vote on new election laws intended to keep the citizens of Texas safe from election interference and fraud, Democrat lawmakers absconded to Washington D.C. where they were safe from the threat of democracy in action. But the Texas governor says that Democrats who fled to block the vote will be arrested when they get home from their little stunt.

On Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle,” Abbott announced that “once they step back into the state they will be arrested and brought back to the Capitol and we will be conducting business.” The Texas House of Representatives can call for the arrests of their peers who act badly, but the arrests have to happen in the state. Texas can’t hunt them down in Washington and drag them home. So what happened? Newsmax reports:

Texas Democrats also took part in a walkout in May and successfully prevented an earlier version of the voting legislation from passing, Newsweek reported.

The Texas Democratic Party issued a statement saying that “In response to Republicans’ escalation of their attacks on voters, Democrats continue to hold the line.”

Democrats explained that after they “historically blocked Republicans’ anti-voter efforts in the spring legislative session, Abbott called an irregular extra legislative session in order to resurrect the anti-voter legislation – Republicans’ main hope of holding onto power in the 2022 election.”

But Abbot insisted that such tactics will not work, telling Fox that “We have special sessions that last 30 days. And the governor calls them, and I will continue calling special session after special session because over time it is going to continue until they step up to vote.”

Democrat state Rep. Chris Turner says that they “determined to kill this bill,” and vowed that he and his anti-American friends would continue to do anything it takes to stop Texas Republicans from protecting democracy.

Some Americans have chosen not to get vaccinated against COVID-19. There are many reasons for this. Some have religious or philosophical reasons. Others have health conditions that prevent them from being able to get the shot in the first place. Some are concerned with the lack of testing and full FDA approval. Whatever the reason some have not to get the vaccine, CNN wants it to bee clear that life “needs to be hard” for unvaccinated Americans.

“So now we have this delta variant that is much more contagious,” CNN medical analyst and former Planned Parenthood president Dr. Leanna Wen said on Friday. “Because it’s more contagious, it’s going to be even harder for us to reach herd immunity.”

“We’re going to have to vaccinate an even higher proportion of people to get there,” she says.  “What happens, then, if we end up having another variant developing that’s even more contagious, that could cause more disease, that could evade the protection of our immune system?”

“It needs to be hard for people to remain unvaccinated,” Wen shockingly concluded. She says that, to make things “harder” on Americans to force them to get jabbed, vaccine mandates could be used to exclude the unvaccinated from society until they give in and get poked:

“Right now, it’s kind of the opposite. It’s fine. It’s easy if you’re unvaccinated. You can do anything you want to do anyway. At some point, these mandates by workplaces, by schools, I think it will be important to say, hey, if you want to opt-out, you have to sign these forms, get twice weekly testing, Basically, we want to make getting vaccinated the easy choice. That is what it’s going to take for us to actually end the pandemic.”

Prepare, America. If Democrats keep control of Congress in 2022, we have a rough road ahead of us.
