Angie Ugarte, who owns the DeBary Diner in DeBary, Florida, has found a way to demonstrate her disapproval of the Biden administration’s failed withdrawal from Afghanistan. As reported by Danielle Lama with FOX 35 Orlando, the diner has a sign on its door that reads: “If you voted for and continue to support and stand behind the worthless, inept and corrupt administration currently inhabiting the White House that is complicit in the death of our servicemen and women in Afghanistan, please take your business elsewhere.”

The owner of a Debary restaurant has this sign posted on the front door. Why she says she posted it and reaction from residents at 10 #FOX35News pic.twitter.com/XKMiHKpViJ — Danielle Lama FOX 35 (@DLama_FOX35)

As Ugarte told the local FOX affiliate:

“It was the only thing I felt like I could do,” said the restaurant’s owner, Angie Ugarte. 

Ugarte says she posted the message the same day 13 service members were killed in Afghanistan. 

“I was just angry. I was just let down. I felt like one of those mothers, or wives, or sisters who were gonna get that knock on the door,” she explained. 

Ugarte, who’s been running the DeBary Diner for about five years, says a lot of her regular customers are vets. She has an entire wall in the diner dedicated to members of the military.  She blames President Joe Biden’s administration for the recent deaths in the Middle East.

“If you really, really still stand behind what’s allowed this to happen and the way it happened – which was unnecessary then I really don’t want to be associated with you in any way and I certainly don’t want your business,” she told FOX 35 News.  

The reaction appears to be mixed. The diner’s Facebook page thanks supporters, noting that they’ve been so overwhelmed they have run out of food and need to close on Thursday to prepare for the weekend.

Yelp has restricted reviews, noting “This business is being monitored by Yelp’s Support team for content related to media reports.” 

There’s also an “Unusual Activity Alert” which reads:

This business recently received increased public attention, which often means people come to this page to post their views on the news. While we don’t take a stand one way or the other when it comes to this incident, we’ve temporarily disabled the posting of content to this page as we work to investigate the content you see here reflects actual consumer experiences rather than the recent events. Please note that we apply this same policy regardless of the business and regardless of the topic at issue. Read more on Yelp Support.

If you’re here to leave a review based on a first-hand experience with the business, please check back at a later date.

The restaurant has 2.5 stars on Yelp, which again has likely been affected by such news. On Google it has 4.2 stars

Chinese tech giant Huawei paid Dem Tony Podesta $1 million for lobbying Biden White House: Report

Published

on

Powerful Democrat Tony Podesta earned $1 million during the last half of 2021 for lobbying the Biden White House on behalf of restricted Chinese tech giant Huawei, according to financial disclosures. 

Podesta began working for Huawei in August 2021, The New York Post reports. His Quarter 3 disclosure for 2021 shows that he made $500,000 lobbying the “Executive Office of the President.” He made $500,000 during Quarter 4 lobbying the “White House Office,” according to his disclosure filed Thursday. Both forms stated that he specifically lobbied on “issues related to telecommunication services and impacted trade issues.” 

The Trump administration identified Huawei as a national security threat, and President Donald Trump issued regulations to prevent the sale of American products to Huawei. 

In November 2021, restrictions on Huawei were tightened further after President Joe Biden signed legislation to stop new telecommunications equipment licenses from being issued to companies deemed to be security threats.

Documents released by The Washington Post the following month show that Huawei is connected to China’s mass surveillance program. 

The filings show that Huawei spent $3.59 million in 2021 on lobbying. 

Podesta’s brother is Democratic political consultant John Podesta, who served as chief of staff to President Bill Clinton, counselor to President Barack Obama and chairman of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign. He is currently president of the liberal think tank the Center for American Progress.

Baltimore State’s Attorney indicted on charges of perjury and falsifying mortgage applications

Published

on

Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby was indicted by a grand jury on Thursday for allegedly lying on a mortgage application when she used the COVID-19 pandemic as a reason to withdraw funds from her city retirement account.

Both charges – one for the false mortgage application, and one for perjuring herself – pertain to the purchase of two vacations home in Florida.

Mosby allegedly falsified hardship due to the pandemic as a reason that, under the CARES Act, she should be allowed to make withdrawals from her city retirement account. She subsequently, allegedly, requested two one-time withdrawals of $40,000 and $50,000, which she then used to make down-payments on two properties in Florida.

The grand jury indictment states that the official did not, in reality, experience any significant financial hardship due to the pandemic, and was awarded her full annual salary of just under $250,000 in 2020.

Mosby is additionally being accused of lying about the status of one of the Florida properties in order to get a better mortgage rate. Court documents reportedly reveal that she claimed one of the homes on which she placed a down payment was going to be a second home, despite having already entered into an agreement with a vacation rental company. She also reportedly failed to disclose that she and her husband (the president of the Baltimore city council) owe the IRS more than $45,000.

Should she be convicted, Mosby could face up to five years in prison for the perjury charge and another 30 years for each of the two counts of falsifying a mortgage application, in addition to a $1 million fine per mortgage application violation.

Mosby was first elected in 2014, won reelection in 2018, and is running for a third term in June. In a statement to the press, her attorney defended his client’s innocence.

“Marilyn Mosby is innocent, has been innocent, and we look forward to defending her in the court of law, and presenting evidence of her innocence to a jury of her peers. We will fight these charges vigorously, and I remain confident that once all the evidence is presented, that she will  prevail against these bogus charges – charges that are rooted in personal, political and racial animus five months from her election,” said A. Scott Bolden.

Mosby gained a national profile when she brought charges against six police officers involved in the death of Freddie Grey, who died while in detention of the Baltimore Police Department.

Board member of NEA – the largest teachers union, saying unvaxxed should die or be shot

Published

BREAKING: NEA just removed Mollie Paige Mumau’s name from their website after she posted on FB that unvaccinated people should die or be shot. However, they have yet to make a public statement.

NEA Board Member Suggests Unvaccinated with Religious Exemptions Deserve to Die

Mollie Paige Mumau, a Pennsylvania teacher and member of the board of directors of the NEA, identifies herself as an “educator, wife, union advocate, semi-pro wine drinker, LGBTQ ally, and ‘Team Pfizer.’”

Mumau wrote, apparently in response to a specific person, that those who choose not to be vaccinated and obtain a religious exemption deserve to die or be shot:

“Screw this guy and screw them all who are all about hiding behind religious exemptions because they don’t want anybody to tell them what to do. People tell you what to do all the time, and you do it. This is such BS. He and his ilk deserve whatever comes their way, including losing jobs, getting sick, and perhaps dying from this virus. But in the meantime, he’s going to put all the people around him in danger. I don’t know why the GOP doesn’t just take those guns they profess to love so much and just start shooting all of their constituents who think this way. It would be quicker and ultimately safer than putting me and my friends and family at risk.”
