Chick-fil-A Restaurant Owner Proves Chain Has A Heart!

How Chick-Fil-A Treated a Homeless Man Might Surprise Some People

Thursday, January 8th, 2015
Blind, seething hatred of the Chick-fil-A chain has long been a rite of passage into the inner circles of liberalism. It’s a successful business, fast food chain, and it’s Christian-owned. I mean, all it needs is a conservative talk radio host as a sponsor and a “no Macbooks” rule and it pretty much violates every major tenet of modern liberalism.
The problem liberals are having is that, in spite of all of the effort they’ve taken to paint Chick-fil-A as a source of hatred and greed, Americans can see how the corporation works up close. This latest example, posted to Facebook by someone who witnessed it, illustrates perfectly how religion has made Chick-fil-A a more caring, inclusive organization.
“My son and I were at the location on Highway 280 in Birmingham, AL when a man came in to escape the 35 degree temps and strong winds with all of his earthly possessions strapped to his back,” read the post by Andrea Stoker, a stay-at-home mom from Alabama.
“Most businesses would force him out, but I watched as the manager walked up to him and asked if he could do anything for him,” she continued.
“Before the man could even answer, the manager asked if he had a pair of gloves and walked to the table at which he’d been sitting and picked up his own. As he handed the man his gloves, he asked another employee to get him something to eat.”

The manager actually turned out to be the franchise owner, as well. Stoker added that she was happy to see that the restaurant put their Christian ideals into practice, from top to bottom.
Not only do the chain’s Christian values not engender a divided, hate-filled environment, they actually make Chick-fil-A far more human than most other businesses.
“It was wonderful to see your employees being the hands and feet of Jesus, and that my son was able to witness it all,” Stoker wrote. “Thank you for putting your money where your mouth is.”
Of course, I’m sure liberals will be enraged someone helped the homeless who wasn’t from the government.
However, Chick-fil-A regularly proves that Christianity can be — and usually is — a force for good, no matter what the left wants to make religion out to be.

Are Newscasts Not Telling Us What Is Really Occurring? Are We Being Misled? Was Charlie Hebdo Shootings A False Flag? What About Newtown?

Je  Suis Critical: An Individualist Libertarian's Take on the France Shootings
[The following post is by TDV Chief Editor, Jeff Berwick]
The recent reports of a number of gunmen murdering some cartoonists/journalists in France has been front and center in mainstream media this week.  Here, at TDV, however, we are stoic, never over-react emotionally to events and always filter through information before we comment on them.
This, unfortunately, is not how most humans function.  The great majority of humans react with new, shocking information completely emotionally and, even worse, due to their fear they stop all rational thought.  This tends to always get us labelled, by them, as crazy, cynical conspiracy theorists.  It's a burden we always bear but someone has to!
These types of people tend to get their information, and even their opinions, from mainstream media which they, for some deluded reason, consider to be unbiased and objective!
Many great minds have warned us about this.  Mark Twain said, "If you don't read the newspaper, you're uninformed. If you read the newspaper, you're mis-informed."  And, Malcolm X said, "If you're not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing."
This, even despite access to the internet, is still mostly the case today for those who have yet to ween themselves from mainstream media programming... and it is called programming for a reason.
With that in mind, let's take a rational, calm look at the events in broad strokes.  
CHARLIE HEBDO SHOOTINGS
On January 7th, three hooded gunmen were reported to have stormed the offices of Charlie Hebdo, a weekly satirical newspaper, and killed twelve people and injured eleven more.
Interestingly, there was not much video evidence of the attacks except for two videos.  One was a strange rooftop video, that appears to have been edited, which shows a number of people on the rooftop of the building as the attacks occurred in bulletproof vests... which is strange. Unless Charlie Hebdo was under such a threat that they had numerous plain-clothed security with bulletproof vests on the premises this seems odd.  But if that were the case, you would think, they would have attempted to stop the attackers and not hid on the roof.
The other video that has been broadcast widely around the world seems to show two military-trained masked gunmen shoot a policeman and then run up and appear to shoot into the pavement beside him nonchalantly.  The policeman's body does not react at all, indicating he wasn't hit, and there was no blood evident indicating either the gunman missed or that it was staged.
Some people may be reacting emotionally here and saying, "Staged! You conspiracy theorists!  It was on TV!"
My point exactly.
It's not like the mainstream media hasn't completely staged other events.  Like, CNN with its totally faked Gulf War "coverage".
Or Sandy Hook, where even the FBI has now admitted that no one was killed.  Or the Boston Marathon "bombing" which has been shown to have been mostly staged if not completely staged.  And don't forget about the biggest lie of them all, 9/11, where three skyscrapers were knocked down at freefall speed in New York.
Still to this day people are trying to get access to more evidence of what really happened on 9/11 as it most certainly wasn't how mainstream media portrayed it.  A bi-partisan group of Congressmen along with the families of those killed on 9/11 renewed their efforts to get 28 pages of classified documents exposed again this week.  One of the Congressmen, Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY), said, “I went into the soundproof, secret room here in Congress and read those 28 pages. And it was a really disturbing event for me to read those. I had to stop every two or three pages and rearrange my perception of history. 
So, to posit that it is possible that part of what happened in France this week may have been planned or staged in order to scare people into giving up any last vestiges of freedom they have is not just possible.  It's quite probable.
That could be seen the day after the shootings in the media in France.  The front page of every newspaper exclaimed that this was an attack on "liberte"... or liberty.  Very similar to how the 9/11 attacks were pushed as being done because "they hate us for our freedom".
The main question is, "What freedom?"
France nearly went full commie (Never Go Full Commie) recently when it proposed a 100% income tax and only recently rescinded it's 75% income tax after Gerard Depardieu and any productive person with any brains fled the country.  And the French government is embroiled in almost every facet of day to day life with countless regulations, laws, welfare, war and taxes.  
Even in terms of "free speech" France's record is appalling.  France has countless laws criminalizing speech that insults, defames or incites hatred, discrimination or violence on the basis of religion, race, ethnicity, nationality, disability, sex or sexual orientation. These laws have even been used to harass the Charlie Hebdo and threaten its staff for years!
According to the Washington Post, "In 2008... Brigitte Bardot was convicted for writing a letter to then-Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy about how she thought Muslims and homosexuals were ruining France. In 2011, fashion designer John Galliano was found guilty of making anti-Semitic comments against at least three people in a Paris cafe. In 2012, the government criminalized denial of the Armenian genocide (a law later overturned by the courts). "
In other words, in France, you are free to say what they let you.  French Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault even said that recently, stating freedom of speech “is expressed within the confines of the law and under the control of the courts.”
COLLECTIVISM AND THE POLICE STATE
Much like 9/11, this event appears to have been the impetus to usher in a complete police state.  80,000 police and military were let loose in France chasing the supposed two shooters.
How, by the way, did they know who the shooters were, since they did not show their faces?  One of the shooters left his ID in the getaway car.  This was similar to how the hijackers were identified so quickly during 9/11, when a passport from one of the hijacked planes that hit the World Trade Center, was found in perfect condition, on the street, a few blocks away.
This event has had the same results in France as 9/11 did in the US.  It has made much of the disarmed, scared population actually demand a massive police state.  Even more 9/11 like, the supposed driver of the getaway car turned himself in after hearing that he was the getaway driver on the news but was confused because he was in school at the time.  A twitter hashtag, #MouradHamydInnocent, was started by his classmates... this is also similar to the Boston Marathon suspects who also claimed innocence... and some of the named 9/11 hijackers who were quite upset after hearing that they had been blamed for 9/11 in their suicide attacks.
However, it is still early in this event and we aren't stating that it, for sure, was a somewhat staged attack... but it already is showing the same old similar signs of past, proven false-flag events.
More importantly, however, is the chain reaction this event has already unleashed.  
It has created violence and chaos amongst the populace with numerous Frenchmen bombing Mosques, a prayer hall and a kebab shop near a Muslim temple in recent days.  This, too, will be used to bring in more police, military, checkpoints, searches and over-all tyranny.
This is why collectivism is so dangerous.
From an individualist and libertarian/anarchist perspective a few people killed some people on January 7th.  That is terrible, for certain.  But what needs to be done is a) Figure out what happened (which no one has done yet, not even close) and b) Find the culprits and hold them accountable.
From the collectivist perspective, this was an attack on "us" and on "our freedoms" (which we don't have) and "they", meaning every person who may have the same religious beliefs as the supposed aggressors, must pay (meaning be killed).  And in order to do that "we" must turn the country, or entire world, into a police state and get extorted (taxed) to pay for numerous terrorist attacks (wars).
Sadly, the great majority of people react emotionally, and collectively, to events such as these which eventually lead to where the US is today... a fasco-communist police state engaged in countless conflicts around the world which has completely bankrupted the country.
As Benjamin Franklin wisely said, "Those who would give up essential liberty, to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety."
It appears France, through its anti-freedom welfare, warfare and state-forced multiculturalism actions will now, also, have neither.

Could Conservatives Pushed Boehner To The Right? Or Is His Move Something Else?

Boehner's Embrace of GOP Rebels Nudges House Caucus to Right

Die-hard House conservatives failed in their coup against House Speaker John Boehner last Tuesday. By Friday they looked like winners who are pushing their Republican caucus farther right.
Rather than punish and isolate those who opposed him as leader, Boehner surprised many by embracing a major immigration plan that's more stringent and conservative than lawmakers had expected.

It not only would block President Barack Obama's recent limits on deportations, it would undo earlier protections for immigrants brought to the country illegally as children.

That will complicate life for Senate Republicans and ensure fierce battles with Obama.Mainstream Republicans say Boehner's decision probably portends firmly conservative approaches to other issues.

Want To Know How To Destroy America, Read Ex-Governor Lamm's Prescription

How To Destroy
America - Part 2 

By Frosty Wooldridge
4-17-6 
 
Three years ago, I attended an immigration-overpopulation conference in Washington, DC, filled to capacity by top leaders concerned about the immigration invasion.  Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm, Tom Tancredo, Dr. John Tanton, Dan Stein, Terry Anderson, Bonnie Eggle, Peter Gadiel, Victor Davis Hansen and other speakers walked to the podium. 
 
America still bled from the wounds of 9/11.  However, new hemorrhaging in-bled into the United States with the Time Magazine report, "Who Left the Door Open?" showing three million illegal aliens crashing our borders annually.  "The numbers of illegal aliens flooding into the U.S. annually totals three million-enough to fill 22,000 Boeing 737-700 airliners or 60 flights every day of the year."
 
In the last two weeks, Mexico's invasion of America exhibited new dimensions with millions of illegals openly defying U.S. laws by parading in our streets.  Even the fa├žade of Homeland Security illustrates Chertoff and Bush with their pants down around their ankles.  In one widely distributed Internet picture, you can see Bush waving a Mexican flag while he walks with a Mexican girl toward school.   Any American can see the invasion advances with the Mexican flag raging across the American landscape.
 
As I said, during the conference, speaker after speaker astounded the audience with facts on how fast the present administration and Congress continue dismantling the American Dream for average citizens.    Former Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm stood up and gave a speech on 'How to Destroy America'.  The audience sat spellbound by the eight methods for destruction of the United States.
 
Lamm said, "If you believe that America is too smug, too self-satisfied, too rich, then let's destroy America.  It is not that hard to do.  No nation in history has survived the ravages of time.  Arnold Toynbee observed that all great civilizations rise and fall, and that, "An autopsy of history would show that all great nations commit suicide."
 
"Here is how they destroyed their countries," Lamm said. "First, turn America into a bilingual or multi lingual and bicultural country.  History shows that no nation can survive the tension, conflict and antagonism of two or more competing languages and cultures.  It is a blessing for an individual to be bilingual; however, it is a curse for a society to be bilingual.  The historical scholar Seymour Lipset put it this way, "The histories of bilingual and bicultural societies that do not assimilate are histories of turmoil, tension and tragedy.  Canada, Belgium, Malaysia, Lebanon-all face crises of national existence in which minorities press for autonomy, if not independence. Pakistan and Cyprus have divided. Nigeria suppressed an ethnic rebellion. France faces difficulties with Basques, Bretons and Corsicans."
 
Look around you at the hundreds of Spanish speaking radio and TV shows invading our airwaves. Look around at the 56 Mexican consulates aiding and abetting illegal aliens to imbed themselves in our country.  Look at the audacity of their lawlessness in our streets with forged documents, driving drunk with no insurance, spreading diseases like tuberculosis and openly laughing at our laws.  If you think France's problems with legal Muslim immigrants rioting were terrible, just wait until our illegal Mexican aliens riot, or worse, start voting!  Fellow Americans, we're in some deep doodoo!
 
Lamm continued on how to destroy America, "Invent 'multiculturalism' and encourage immigrants to maintain their own culture. I would make it an article of belief that all cultures are equal. That there are no cultural differences!  I would make it an article of faith that the Black and Hispanic dropout rates are due to prejudice and discrimination by the majority. Every other explanation is out of bounds."
 
Anyone can see that Los Angeles, California or Miami, Florida are no longer American cities.  The current mayor of Los Angeles is a Mexican and member of La Raza and other Mexican separation organizations.  Chicago, Houston, Dallas, Chicago, New York, Atlanta, San Francisco and many other cities are not far behind.   Immigrants arrive at over four million per year, so fast and so many, that they are not assimilating into the American Dream.  However, they are creating the American Nightmare for Americans.  You would be insulted if you spoke English and you're not welcome in immigrant enclaves of those cities.  Multiculturalism fractures America and dismembers with increasing speed.
 
"We could make the United States an 'Hispanic Quebec' without much effort. The key is to celebrate diversity rather than unity.  As Benjamin Schwarz said in the ATLANTIC MONTHLY recently: "The apparent success of our own multi-ethnic and multi-cultural experiment might have been achieved not by tolerance, but by hegemony.  Without the dominance that once dictated ethnocentrically and what it meant to be an American, we are left with only tolerance and pluralism to hold us together."
 
Whether you look at the French or Sydney riots a few months back, they represented ethnic conflict brought on by too many immigrants unable and unwilling to assimilate into the host culture.  Therefore, they destroy it at every juncture. Great Britain is not far behind as their ethnic tensions grow and separate their two conflicting camps: Britons versus the Muslim immigrants.  Tolerance fails with added numbers of competing and intolerant groups such as millions of Mexicans in America who feel we stole the four Border States away from them in 1848.  What happens when millions of Mexicans advocate for La Raza, which advocates, "For the Hispanic race, everything; anyone outside the race, nothing!"   No anti-discrimination laws can withstand millions who promote Mexican racism and back it up with overwhelming numbers.
 
Lamm added, "I would encourage all immigrants to keep their own language and culture. I would replace the melting pot metaphor with the salad bowl metaphor.  It is important to ensure that we have various cultural sub-groups living in America reinforcing their differences rather than as Americans, emphasizing their similarities."
 
In Los Angeles, the tip of this deadly Mexican invasion manifests itself with the massive 20,000 member "18th
Street Gang", MS 13 gangs and sheer lawlessness running rampant-much like Mexico where corruption is a mechanism by which Third World countries operate.  With millions impregnated into our country, we fall into the same lawless state.  Last month, the Rocky Mountain News reported that Denver, Colorado is now the "Drug Hub of the West" and "People Smuggling Center".   We create a subclass of unassimilated, angry people.
 
"Fourth, I would make our fastest growing demographic group the least educated. I would add a second underclass, unassimilated, undereducated and antagonistic to our population.  I would have this second underclass have a 50 percent dropout rate from high school."
 
Last year, in Denver, Colorado, 65 percent of the potential graduating class either flunked out or dropped out.  Over 30,000 illegal alien kids speaking 40 languages caused one in five teachers to quit or transfer out of Denver Public Schools.  This crisis manifests itself again this year in Denver where Tina Griego, an advocate for illegal immigration and employed by the Rocky Mountain News reported, "North High School teachers estimate only half the student body of 1,400 regularly attend classes." 
 
That school system suffers hundreds of illegal alien kids who can't speak English and arrive from functionally illiterate parents.  They can't perform academically because their parents have no interest or background in viable educational processes.  Those kids think a remote control takes the place of homework.  A similar crisis happens from California to Georgia and from Chicago to Miami.
 
However, democracy requires four disciplines to flourish while remaining viable.  It requires an educated population that possesses a similar moral and ethical foundation while speaking the same language.  The United States, via massive immigration, is losing all four aspects.  It cannot and will not remain viable much longer with the disruption of its educational systems.  Conflicting languages bring a whole new can of worms to the crisis.
 
"My fifth point for destroying America would be to get big foundations and business to give these efforts lots of money. I would invest in ethnic identity, and I would establish the cult of 'Victimology'. I would get all minorities to think their lack of success was the fault of the majority.  I would start a grievance industry blaming all minority failure on the majority population."
 
While a few elites in high places make billions of dollars, they corrupt America's rule of law and undermine the Middle Class.  If you'll notice-Third World countries DO NOT sustain a Middle Class.  They suffer a high class and a low class.  America moves in that direction every day of this immigrant invasion.
 
"My sixth plan for America's downfall would include dual citizenship and promote divided loyalties. I would celebrate diversity over unity.  I would stress differences rather than similarities.  Diverse people worldwide are mostly engaged in hating each other-that is, when they are not killing each other.  A diverse, peaceful or stable society is against most historical precedent.  People undervalue the unity it takes to keep a nation together.  Look at the ancient Greeks:  "The Greeks believed that they belonged to the same race; they possessed a common language and literature; and they worshipped the same gods.  All Greece took part in the Olympic games.  A common enemy Persia threatened their liberty. Yet, all these bonds were not strong enough to overcome two factorslocal patriotism and geographical conditions that nurtured political divisions.  Greece fell.  In that historical reality, if we put the emphasis on the 'pluribus' instead of the 'unum, we can balkanize America as surely as Kosovo."
 
"White Europeans go back to your own continent; this is our land," screamed demonstrators in Los Angeles in the last few weeks.  "You white gringo devils don't belong on our land."
 
The outright racism and hate toward whites in Los Angeles exemplifies Lamm's predictions.  Point blank reality: LA is no longer an American city. Neither is Miami.  Every city in America is under assault.  Corruption reigns supreme along with growing Third World Momentum.  Mexico's Vicente Fox dictates his wishes in our country while his minions send back $20 billion annually to fill his corrupt coffers.
 
Lamm continued, "Next to last, I would place all subjects off limits-make it taboo to talk about anything against the cult of 'diversity'. I would find a word similar to 'heretic' in the 16th
century-that stopped discussion and paralyzed thinking.  Words like 'racist' or 'xenophobe' halt discussion and debate."
 
At every juncture today, anti-American groups like La Raza, MALDEF, LULAC, and MECHA, which are pro illegal alien Mexican groups on U.S. soil--scream 'racism' if anyone protests illegal migration.  You have to wonder what will happen when they gain majority populations.  Will they allow us to use the word 'racism' as they promote their agenda of 'Reconquista of Aztlan' while they break our country into pieces?  At 9.2 million Mexican invaders transplanted onto U.S. soil, they are well on their way.
 
"Having made America a bilingual--bicultural country, having established multiculturalism, having the large foundations fund the doctrine of 'Victimology'," Lamm said. "I would next make it impossible to enforce our immigration laws. I would develop a mantra:  "That because immigration has been good for America, it must ALWAYS be good.  I would make every individual immigrant sympatric and ignore the cumulative impact of millions of them."
 
In the last minute of his speech, Governor Lamm wiped his brow.  A profound silence swept over the room.  Finally, he said, "Lastly, I would censor Victor Davis Hansen's book "MEXIFORNIA."  His book is dangerous.  It exposes the plan to destroy America.  If you feel America deserves to be destroyed, don't read that book."
 
There was no applause.  A chilling apprehension rose like an ominous cloud above every attendee at the conference.  Every American in that room knew that everything Lamm enumerated was proceeding methodically, quietly, darkly, yet pervasively across the United States today.  Every discussion is being suppressed.  Over 100 languages rip the foundation of our educational system and national cohesiveness.  Barbaric cultures that practice female genital mutilation, terror, horse tripping, cock fighting, dog fighting and worse--grow as we celebrate 'diversity'.   American jobs vanish into the Third World as greedy corporations create a Third World in America-take note of California and other states-to date, 20 million illegal aliens and growing, fast.
 
If you look around you, our president and this Congress dismantle America by design.  Call it 'multi-culturalism' or 'diversity' or 'one world government' or 'globalism'. In the end, it will mean the finish of the United States of America as a free, cohesive, sustainable and functioning society.
 
George Orwell wrote about it in his book, "1984".  In that story, three slogans are engraved in the Ministry of Truth building:  "War is peace," "Freedom is slavery," and "Ignorance is strength."  Our nation and the future of this great republic are deeply in trouble and worsening fast.  An invasion of diseases, clashing cultures, languages, balkanization, mounting environmental dilemmas accelerate by the day.  If this immigration monster isn't stopped soon, it will rage across the United States like the LA demonstrations that WILL turn violent given more time, and destroy everything in their path, especially the American Dream.
 
Finally, immigrants drive our population into doubling within the next 60 years to over 600 million people.  Remember this--the line never ends as the world grows by 85 million desperate people annually.
 
"Can you think of any problem in any area of human endeavor on any scale, from microscopic to global, whose long-term solution is in any demonstrable way--aided, assisted, or advanced by further increases in population, locally, nationally or globally?" Dr. Albert Bartlett
 
If you as an American citizen continue standing by saying nothing, this country falls to the count.  Everything you work and hope for-will not be there for your children. It's time for your participation.  If this Congress passes a guest-worker amnesty program, the invasion accelerates beyond your wildest nightmare!

Western Civilization Is Under Attack. French Experience Is The Just The Latest.

MI5 Head Warns al-Qaida Plans 'Mass-Casualty Attacks Against the West'

Al-Qaida militants in Syria are plotting attacks to inflict mass casualties in the West, possibly against transport systems or "iconic targets," the head of Britain's MI5 Security Service said on Thursday.
Speaking after gunmen killed 12 people in an assault on a French satirical newspaper, MI5 boss Andrew Parker warned that a strike on the United Kingdom was highly likely.
"A group of core al-Qaida terrorists in Syria is planning mass-casualty attacks against the West," Director General Parker said in a rare public speech at MI5 headquarters in London. His last public speech was in October 2013.
In the speech, planned before the killings in Paris, Parker said seasoned al-Qaida militants in Syria aimed to "cause large-scale loss of life, often by attacking transport systems or iconic targets" in the West.
Al-Qaida killed nearly 3,000 people by attacking the United States with hijacked passenger planes on Sept. 11, 2001. Militants inspired by the group killed 52 commuters in London on July 7, 2005, with suicide bombs.
Al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden was killed by U.S. special forces in 2011, and the threat posed by the network to the West seemed to recede in recent years.
But spies in Europe and the United States have been troubled that al-Qaida militants from Pakistan have appeared in war-torn Syria in what some intelligence analysts say could be part of a plot to mount a major attack against the West.
Thursday's stark warning from one of the West's most influential spymasters mirrors a growing concern among Western political leaders and their Arab allies about the threat from the cauldron of militant groups in Syria and Iraq.
Parker said that about 600 British extremists had traveled to Syria, many joining the militant group that calls itself Islamic State (ISIS) and has taken control of swathes of Iraq and Syria.
The group, an offshoot of al-Qaida, has beheaded two U.S. journalists and an American and two British aid workers in an effort to put pressure on a U.S.-led international coalition bombing its fighters in Syria.
ISIS militants in Syria are plotting attacks on Britain and making sophisticated use of social media to incite British nationals to carry out violence, Parker said.
MI5, established in 1909 to counter German espionage ahead of World War I, stopped three potentially deadly "terrorist plots" against the U.K in recent months, he said.
"We face a very serious level of threat that is complex to combat and unlikely to abate significantly for some time," said Parker, who has argued strongly for more surveillance powers to spy on militant communications on the Internet.
He said security services need to have access to such communications.
"My sharpest concern as director general of MI5 is the growing gap between the increasingly challenging threat and the decreasing availability of capabilities to address it," he said.
Twitter and Facebook are so important to militants that technology giants should give security services greater access to their networks, the head of Britain's GCHQ eavesdropping agency said last year.
"The dark places from where those who wish us harm can plot and plan are increasing," Parker said. "We need to be able to access communications and obtain relevant data on those people when we have good reason."
