In-N-Out Burger Serves Customers, not San Francisco

In-N-Out Burger just served San Francisco an everything burger, animal style. It’s heartening to see an iconic restaurant chain stand up to government overreach—and in an ultra-liberal enclave, to boot.

Here’s how it went down. San Francisco issued an edict to force bars and restaurants to verify customers’ COVID vaccination papers before allowing entry.

In response, In-N-Out Burger dutifully posted the city’s vaccination requirement on its windows. This placed the onus where it belongs—on their customers. This is as far as a private company need go.

However, San Francisco sees things much differently. They closed down the city’s only In-N-Out Burger location, on Fisherman’s Wharf. As a result, the burger chain issued this statement:

“Local regulators informed us that our restaurant Associates must actively intervene by demanding proof of vaccination and photo identification from every Customer…. We refuse to become the vaccination police for any government. We fiercely disagree with any government dictate that forces a private company to discriminate against customers who choose to patronize their business.”

San Francisco’s beef shouldn’t be with In-N-Out Burger—it should be with its unvaccinated citizens. If the city chooses to order an unconstitutional vaccination requirement for bars and restaurants, they should enforce it, not the bars and restaurants. They’re private businesses, not COVID cops.

Burger bouncers

In-N-Out Burger trains their associates to cheerfully ask customers if they’d like to add fries and shakes to their meals, not to question them about controversial vaccination mandates. Additionally, they shouldn’t be required to make their associates act as bouncers to eject unvaccinated customers.

As an aside, America is one of the only nations on Earth that requires vaccination passports. Most if not all other countries require immunity passports, which include the vaccinated and those who are unvaccinated yet have degrees of natural immunity after being infected with the coronavirus.

The San Francisco In-N-Out Burger mess perfectly illustrates what should be happening all over America. Private business is not an arm of local, state or federal government. We’re all dealing with the pandemic—why compound the problem by attempting to force private businesses to enforce governmental mandates?

It makes one wonder how San Francisco leaders failed to see this coming. Can any serious person imagine cheerful, smiling, In-N-Out Burger associates making effective burger bouncers? It’s ridiculous for any city to expect restaurant employees to provide vaccination enforcement.

This smacks of more than mere incompetence. Did the city truly expect bars and restaurants to comply? If so, this seems like autocratic (and dangerous) arrogance.

If San Francisco wants to enforce vaccination inspections, they should do it themselves on the sidewalk in front of bars and restaurants. Closing restaurants that don’t force their employees to act as muscle for the city is poor leadership.

Given In-N-Out Burger’s wild popularity, it’s safe to say that most customers want their locations open. If some side with San Francisco in closing the restaurant and forcing associates to be vaccination police, they can get lesser burgers elsewhere.

Smart business

It’s called freedom. And clearly, it’s in short supply in places like San Francisco. Kudos to In-N-Out Burger for making a stand.

Here’s hoping other private businesses will take heart in In-N-Out Burger’s sound and smart business sense and stand up to one-size-fits-all autocrats. If they do, it’s likely that most of their customers will continue supporting them and they may even gain new ones.

Smart and principled businesses take risks for the right reasons. In-N-Out Burger is right to defy San Francisco. Prediction: By refusing to discriminate when serving its customers, they’ll sell even more burgers, fries and shakes in the City by the Bay and in their other 368 locations across America.

Biden’s Evil Empire Must Be Defeated!

Democrats have no issues or results to run on. They are left with lies, name-calling, and transparent taxpayer funded bribes.

Published

on

President Biden is now angry every time he speaks, and it’s clear he will keep yelling until morale and his polls improve. He calls a celebration for his Inflation Reduction Act on a day the Dow Jones goes down over a thousand points and inflation remains high at 8.3%. What does he do after his delusional party? He retreats to Delaware for more rest and safety.

The Biden lies keep coming. It’s all talking points that are meant to attract the ill-informed, but his words are even hard to believe for loyal Democrats. When people go to fill their car with gas, buy food for the family, or face rent increases, they come face to face with the stark reality. Prices are up—way up! Two-thirds of America are reportedly living paycheck to paycheck. The mortgage rate is exploding, taking home ownership out of the reach of millions of Americans. The numbers don’t lie. It’s hard for voters not to notice when they face daily reminders of how their standard of living is falling like a stone.

It’s time for American voters to wake up. The November midterms are just weeks away! Biden keeps yelling that MAGA Republicans are the most dangerous threat America faces. Why? They dare believe his election victory was a fraud. They dare to believe that the Southern border is not even close to being secure. They are watching illegal aliens and dangerous drugs flood across that “secure border” daily. Yes, MAGA Republicans are indeed dangerous—dangerous to the Democrats’ slim control of the Senate and the House.

Democrats want you to believe the hype that they are closing the gap with Republicans. But when you see the low turnout at Biden events, you have to wonder. The voter enthusiasm for actually voting in November rests with the Republicans. They are mad as hell and can’t wait to do everything they can to vote out every Democrat running.

Biden and his minions keep trying to pay off potential voters, but there are serious doubts as to whether you even have the authority to deliver what they promise. Many assert that relieving student loan debt is illegal. To keep the hope alive, the Biden administration isn’t even attempting to allocate the funds until December. They have until November 15th, after the election is over, to register for debt relief. How convenient! Democrats get their votes, and they get stuck with an empty promise. President Biden is the most generous “candy man” President in history. But he doesn’t use his own money. Democrats love using taxpayer money to pay off anyone willing to support their party.

President Biden and fellow Democrats keep calling the demonstration on January 6th and the capitol incursion an “insurrection.” This has to be the first “insurrection” attempted without guns. Biden doesn’t even admit that the only person shot to death was a Republican. Such claims of “insurrection” are nonsense! The real assault on America was occurring in major Democrat-controlled cities where rioting and looting destroyed businesses and lives. They watched liberal DA’s do nothing to hold the rioters responsible. Voters don’t feel safe. On the basis of the evident facts and their party platforms and performance, which party do you think will win the law-and-order voter?

To make citizens less safe, Democrats call for more gun control at a time there are not enough law enforcement officers to protect our citizens. Fearing crime, Democrats want to make it harder for citizens to get the weapons they need to protect their own families. Democrats have no reservations in funding the hiring of thousands of armed IRS agents to work their will on taxpayers. At a time Biden and his party won’t keep Americans safe, it’s time to elect politicians who will stand for our second amendment rights!

Biden claims that it‘s the Republicans who are denying fair elections and stopping needed reforms. But it is the Democrats who want to recklessly extend voting days and end requirements for voter IDs. If Democrats are so sure that many Americans aren’t smart enough to secure and carry a valid ID, they should make that their campaign focus. All voters have two months to secure an ID. If someone isn’t smart enough to take their ID to the polls, maybe it’s not wise for them to vote, no matter what their party.

To Democrats, “Global Warming” is irrefutable. It’s “settled science.” Why else would they support investing billions in their “Green New Deal” and unproven alternative energy schemes? Democrats want those who do not accept such claims to be labeled as “science deniers.” True science is built on constantly questioning, testing, and continuing to study any hypothesis. The weather of earth is such a complex system with millions of uncontrolled variables, it’s crazy to accept any of these claims as “settled science.” It will be decades before we see whether changes in weather patterns are cyclical or linear. But what do Democrats say of such valid reservations—“You should be ashamed of yourself to disagree with our truth!”.

Democrats are doing everything they can to increase the racial animus in America. They claim there is “white privilege” and “systemic racism.” Why? They hope creating a huge “white supremacy” enemy will draw minorities to their party for protection. There are “racists” of all races in America, but they are few in any race. America remains the least racist country in the world. There are thousands of amazing black Americans who have thrived in this country. They have started their own companies and elevated their standard of living. They succeeded not by looking to Washington but by earning their success the old-fashioned way—by working their tails off. Democrats want minorities dependent, not successful. No minority should look to Democrats for special programs; follow the example of the millions of minorities who have successfully lived their own American Dream. It’s time to live your own.

Democrats have no issues or results to run on. They are left with lies, name-calling, and transparent taxpayer funded bribes! After all, if you can’t win on issues, try demeaning half of Americans as “dangerous” extremists. Americans can’t let this work. Get mad. Get ready for the most important election of your life. Be a contagious conservative and let others know the truth about this administration. Take back America by voting for every Republican candidate willing to serve. Remember this important truth—If it’s not close, they can’t cheat!

Tucker: Martha’s Vineyard Won’t Accept The Migrants

They’re the people who make the rules, and in this case they had no intention of following them, not even for a day.

Published

on

Tucker takes a look at what went down over 50 immigrants in Martha’s Vineyard last week, a place that claims to welcome all with open arms without question, unless they’re … sent over by a politician … on a plane … without permission … like a certain someone has been doing with several thousands of … oh, hello, Mister President.

Highlights include:

“If there’s one thing we have learned about the people who make the rules, it’s that they have no intention of following them, any of them, ever, ever. They command you to wear a mask as you jog alone in the park while they head to dinner barefaced at the French Laundry, that happened. They harangue you of the carbon footprint of your lawnmower as they fly to Aspen on their private jets. You see that every day. How many members of Congress that voted to expand the police powers of the IRS don’t pay their own taxes? More than a few.”

“How many politicians who fervently support gun control have armed bodyguards that you pay for? Well, let’s see, every single one.”

“Another word for this is a ‘caste system,’ which is increasingly what we have in the United States. Caste systems are common in poor countries, the countries from which most of our immigrants come, but it’s the opposite of the traditional American system, which was imperfect egalitarianism.”

“In the old America, every citizen was considered equal under the law, as well as in the eyes of God. Everybody had to follow the same rules because nobody underneath it all was more important than anyone else, we were all citizens. Citizenship implies inherent rights, rights that politicians cannot under any circumstances take from you because they did not bestow them in the first place, you were born with them.”

“Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida generously sent a plane load of 50 illegal aliens from Venezuela to the Vineyard, which is a small, famously affluent island off the coast of Massachusetts. Martha’s Vineyard has everything you could ever want in the world, except racial diversity. The island is whiter than a Swedish bluegrass festival, and DeSantis was trying to help. Under normal circumstances, the residents of Martha’s Vineyard would’ve had no choice but to smile and say, ‘thank you, Governor DeSantis.’ When government officials send you the blessed gift of diverse immigrants or refugees, you must accept. That’s the ‘rule.'”

“That’s how America works. Everybody knows it because it’s been going on for a very long time, that’s the rule. But, it turns out the people of Martha’s Vineyard aren’t just anyone. They’re the people who make the rules, and in this case they had no intention of following them, not even for a day.”
