Several Congressmen are going to war with the QAnon conspiracy theory.
On August 25, 2020, Republican Congressman Denver Riggleman and Democrat Congressman Tom Malinowski introduce a resolution to condemn the conspiracy movement and demand that law enforcement crack down on criminal activity that its supporters carry out.
Riggleman tweeted “QAnon and the conspiracy theories it promotes are a danger and a threat that has no place in our country’s politics. I condemn this movement and urge all Americans to join me in taking this step to exclude them and other extreme conspiracy theories from the national discourse. https://twitter.com/Malinowski/status/1298270725795508228.”

The resolution describes QAnon as one of the “fringe political conspiracy theories” that authorities believe is likely to incite violence.
With several Republican candidates who have allegedly supported QAnon in the past now potentially making their way to Congress, establishment gatekeepers in both parties are becoming jittery.
Whether or not such conspiracies have validity is for curious Americans to decide through their own investigation.
The real question we should be asking is why a Republican like Riggleman is wasting his time trying to introduce a resolution with a Democrat?
After all, this is a time when there’s an existential threat of radical leftists tearing up the streets across the nation. This merits a full-fledged response from the GOP. Focusing on anything else is a complete waste of time and political capital.
Riggleman’s inability to get Democrats to condemn radical leftist groups such as Antifa or Black Lives Matter, let alone make apologies for spreading the Russiagate hoax —one of the most toxic conspiracies that has ripped the country apart — is one of the many reasons he got the boot during the primary for Virginia’s 5th congressional district.
Now, he’s likely going to be replaced by Bob Good, a true America First conservative that likely won’t turn to silly virtue signaling to appease journalists and party leadership.
Starbucks Barista FIRED After Refusing to Wear “Pride” T-Shirt for Religious Reasons, According to Lawsuit
She is a Christian and was apparently told by her manager that she didn’t have to wear it.
A former Starbucks barista is filing an unlawful discrimination lawsuit against the coffee giant, claiming they fired her for refusing to wear a “Pride” t-shirt that violated her Christian religious convictions.
Betsy Fresse started working as a barista in December 2015. After transferring to a Glen Ridge, New Jersey, store in early 2019, managers apparently “assured” her that her Christian faith wouldn’t be an issue.
Then in June 2019, she noticed a box of Pride shirts on a desk and asked if they’d make her wear one. Her store manager said she wouldn’t have to, but two months later she found herself out of a job after being terminated by a district manager.
A notice of separation claims that Fresse was fired for violating Starbucks’ “core values.” It specifically mentions an incident where she said her colleagues “need Jesus” when given the “Pride” shirt.
Starbucks maintains that “no part of our dress code requires partners to wear any approved items that they have not personally selected” and that Fresse’s claims are “without merit,” in a comment to the New York Post.
So Starbucks denies that she was fired for not wearing the shirt, yet their notice of separation appears to claim that they fired her for something she said about Jesus. Not a good look either way.
Fresse is seeking backpay, punitive damages, money to cover the cost of an attorney, and a permanent injunction that prevents Starbucks from “failing to accommodate […] sincerely held religious beliefs.”
Starbucks has long been a major player in the world of Woke Capital. Back in February Big League Politics reported on how the British branch of Starbucks was raising money for a pro-transgender lobbying group:
The U.K. branch of Starbucks is raising money to push for the chemical castration and surgical mutilation of children.
Nathanael Blake at The Federalist reported that the multinational titan is selling special mermaid-shaped cookies to help the pro-transgender lobbying group Mermaids. Curiously, the group’s founder took her underage son to Thailand to undergo a castration procedure.
Blake correctly observed “That Starbucks is supporting this group illustrates how thoroughly radicals have conquered both the LGBT movement and corporate culture.”
He also called attention to how “In a few years the fight has shifted from government recognition of same-sex relationships as legal marriages to mastectomies, sterilization, and castration for children.”
Here’s hoping that Betsy Fresse is successful in her lawsuit.
