Having completed her field training just before Christmas, 22-year-old rookie officer Natalie Corona — called a “rising star” for the Davis, California, police force — was gunned down in the line of duty Thursday.

Amid the outpouring of grief, a photo of Corona wearing a blue dress and waving the pro-police “Thin Blue Line” flag — which she posted to her Facebook page in 2016 — went viral.

“I would like this photograph to serve as my gratitude for all those law enforcement men and women who have served, who are currently serving, and those who have died in the line of duty protecting our liberties in this great country,” Corona wrote. read more

Starbucks Policy Coming Back to Bite Them

from the American Thinker:

Starbucks learns the price of virtue-signaling, now must install needle disposal boxes in bathrooms ‘open to all’Image result for used needle boxes

The expression “clueless liberal” now has an emblem: the Starbucks logo.  The coffee chain has discovered what anyone who understands human nature could have predicted – as many of us did.  When the chain announced last May that it was opening its bathrooms to non-customers and allowing them to stay in its stores as long as they want without paying for anything, it was utterly predictable that all sorts of troubled people with nowhere else to shoot up, turn tricks, or bathe would start using the restrooms of the virtue-signaling chain. read more

Fairness Gone Wild

This has to be one of the most absurd stories I’ve seen. Now we’re supposed to be fair to home invaders? Please!

Grandfather of Oklahoma teen killed by homeowner in burglary says AR-15 made for ‘unfair’ fight

Three Oklahoma teenagers were killed last week when they broke into a house and were met by a homeowner with an AR-15. Now the grandfather of one of the teenagers is speaking out about his grandson’s death.

According to KTUL-TV, Leroy Schumacher, grandfather of 17-year-old Jacob Redfearn, believes the death of Redfearn was unjustified because the homeowner’s AR-15 gave him an unfair advantage over the three burglars. read more

No Contrition Over the Houston Shooting Incident

How could they have been so wrong? I mean, for all the supposed “witnesses” to Jazmine Barnes’ seemingly random killing to be 100% wrong is incomprehensive in any other setting and in any other scenario.

What we thought we knew 

And by that, I mean days ago, not decades ago.

It was 6:30 A.M. Sunday, December 30, 2018. It was still dark in Houston Texas. LaPorsha Washington drove her four daughters, including 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes, in the family’s silver car to the local Walmart near Houston. Jazmine was seated in the back directly behind her mom.

“Fifteen-year-old Alexis Dilbert, Washington’s oldest daughter, was sitting in the front passenger seat when she noticed a red truck pull up beside their vehicle. She described the driver as a blue-eyed white man wearing a black hoodie and looking sickly. The family, who is black, didn’t give the truck a second thought until it changed lanes, moving around from behind to the driver’s side of Washington’s vehicle and the driver opened fired. Washington was hit by gunfire in her arm. Jazmine was shot in the head and died at the scene.” read more

Somali Immigrants Make Demands of Amazon

Despite being THE online powerhouse and a great place to find virtually anything, Amazon is apparently not the best place to work, at least for some.

I’m sure many of us have read and heard multiple accounts of employees anonymously complaining of working conditions and “unreasonable” production demands.

But it seems none more than the Muslim community.

Adherent Muslims are required to pray five times a day, every day. If anyone is interested, the five prayers are as follows:

Fajr – the dawn prayer.
Dhuhr – the noon prayer.
Asr – the afternoon prayer.
Maghrib – the sunset prayer.
Isha’a – the night prayer.

According to Vox.com, Amazon warehouse workers get two 15-minute breaks and one 30-minute break each shift, per federal regulation. Considering how often Muslims must pray, this doesn’t give them anytime to do anything else. So they have to make a choice. Or do they? read more

Boys Scouts Fate was Entirely Predictable

from The American Spectator:

The other day President Trump called Rex Tillerson “dumb as a rock.” That was payback for an interview in which his former Secretary of State called Trump undisciplined and a poor study. Trump had selected Tillerson for the job based in part on the recommendation of Robert Gates, Obama’s Secretary of Defense, according to press reports. Gates and Tillerson knew each other largely from the Boy Scouts, where they both held leadership positions during its transition from a traditional organization to a politically correct one.

As president of the Boy Scouts, Gates had endorsed the adoption of the LGBT agenda, urging the organization to succumb to the demands of its critics. He cast adherence to Christian principles, not their betrayal, as the real threat to the organization’s future. read more

Song from 1949 Should be Banned, but Misogynistic Rap is Fine

from the Blaze:

Students who say ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’ is ‘suggestive’ are asked if misogynistic rap should be banned. The hypocrisy is glorious.

Cabot Phillips of Campus Reform visited George Mason University in northern Virginia recently to ask students what they thought of the controversy over the classic holiday song, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” — specifically if it’s the right move to ban the tune over lyrics that suggest a man is seducing a woman against her will.

The reactions were mixed. Some woke students were all for banning the song; others believed the dust-up has been overblown. read more
