Earl Granville is one of the candidates in the running for the Republican nomination in Pennsylvania’s 8th district.

According to Media Right News, the Republican candidate has ties to Meghan McCain and has a very positive view of the late establishment Senator John McCain.

One interesting point raised by Kay Williamson of Media Right News is that someone asked Granville about his party affiliation. “Team Granville” responded to the user inquiry “Mitch–as is the case with many combat veterans who serve various Commanders In Chief, and do not ask the party affiliations of the soldiers they fight alongside of in war on the right and the left, Earl has been quite forthcoming in saying he once was a registered Independent. But make no mistake, his conservative values are that of the R Party, he is a Republican, and is a strong supporter of the President’s America First Agenda.–Team Granville.”

Williamson then posted about the follow up that Media Right News made with his Facebook page:

Media Right News reached out to the Earl for Congress Facebook page and asked when Earl switched from Independent to Republican. The response to the question didn’t answer the question. The “Earl for Congress” Facebook page response (likely by a staff member) stated ‘Earl Granville is a Republican and is supporting Donald J Trump for President in 2020. We are focused on defeating Cartwright and the liberal left in Nov and are pleased to have the endorsement of Republican House Leader Kevin McCarthy. –Team Granville’

And the story gets juicier when Granville’s page was asked about an Instagram post from election night in 2016.

Media Right News also asked about an Instagram post from election night 2016, that has since been deleted, showing a Facebook post and reads ‘Me: I don’t like Trump. Everyone: ‘So you support a liar like Hillary? She should be in Jail! Me: I don’t like Hillary. Everyone: ‘So you support a racist like Trump!? He doesn’t stand for American values!’ Me: I don’t like either. Everyone: ‘So you’re going to waste your vote on third party!? They’re never going to win!! Me: So…there’s no point in voting. Everyone: ‘IT’S YOUR DUTY TO VOTE AS AN AMERICAN! YOU CAN’T JUST NOT VOTE’ Literally our voting system in America.’

A source was able to send Media Right News a screenshot of an Instagram post from November 8th, 2016 which exposed Granville.

Granville appeared to agree with some comments which were made on his Instagram post from a Facebook post, where someone declared that they didn’t like Hillary Clinton or now President Donald Trump. Although the screenshot has been deleted since then, Granville staff did not deny the screenshot’s authenticity when Media Right News reached out to them.

The ambiguous response from Granville’s team leaves many questions unanswered and raises concerns about his sincerity behind supporting Trump.

Another candidate is running for the Republican nomination in the 8th district. Teddy Daniels, a former police officer, served in Afghanistan where he received a Purple Heart as well as a Combat Infantry Badge. Daniels sustained injuries during a firefight with the Taliban in 2012.

Daniels has expressed his pro-Trump beliefs without qualms. During an interview with Fox 56, Daniels said, “I will always stand behind President Trump. I’m a Trump guy… I’m not a political insider, Nobody has puppet string on me. I’m the man that’s going to stand by my values and fight for Northeast Pennsylvania.”

Groups such as Vets for Trump, NEPA Women for Trump Tea Party Nation, and Freedomworks have endorsed Daniels. Freedomworks generally endorses candidates who are most likely to join the freedom caucus if elected.

Black Rifle Coffee Does Not Support Second Amendment Hero Kyle Rittenhouse

At this Time, Cons

Published

on

Black Rifle Coffee, a coffee company based in Salt Lake City, is not defending 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse.

The company said that it was against a tweet that Blaze Media reporter, Elijah Schaeffer,  posted that featured Rittenhouse wearing a Black Rifle Coffee Company shirt captioned “Kyle Rittenhouse drinks the best coffee in America.” Rittenhouse was released on November 20, 2020 after supporters were able to raise $2 million for his bail. 

In the tweet, Schaeffer posted a discount code for the coffee. Sara Tabin of The Salt Lake Tribune noted that online Twitter users “questioned whether the coffee company had a sponsorship deal with Rittenhouse and accused it of supporting murder and hate.”

This prompted Black Rifle Coffee, the sponsor of the Slightly Offens*ve podcast, to release a statement on November 21 declaring that it is not sponsoring or supporting Rittenhouse.

Initially, there was a misunderstanding about the company withdrawing its sponsorship of Slightly Offens*ve. However, a spokesperson for the company told the Salt Lake Tribune on November 21 that “We are not fluctuating our ad spend.” The coffee spokesperson added “We did have a conversation with Schaffer, and he understands that the post was a mistake.”

She stressed, “We don’t traffic in national tragedy and to us, that’s what this is. We are not legal experts or members of law enforcement. We fully support all law enforcement officials and believe in the integrity of the legal system.”

The spokesperson reiterated that the company will maintain its sponsorship of Blaze Media. She explained: “Our concern is that use of the discount code in the post did not reflect our values. That’s a concern we’ve addressed with the journalist and that he understands.”

Blaze employees “make decisions about how to allocate ad dollars within the Blaze,” she remarked. Although the spokesperson did not go into further detail about the company’s status as a podcast sponsor, it noted that the coffee company and the Blaze are in talks about “how to move forward with the allocation of ad dollars.”

Black Rifle Coffee positions itself as a pro-Second Amendment, conservative company that was founded by veterans. Black Rifle Coffee co-founder Evan Hafer released a statement on November 21 declaring that “We do not support legal advocacy efforts. We do not sponsor nor do we have a relationship with the 17-year-old facing charges in Kenosha, WI.”

At the moment, Rittenhouse is facing two counts of first-degree murder for shooting and killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber during a Black Lives Matter riot back in August. In addition, he’s being charged with one count of being a minor in possession of a firearm. During the riots, Rittenhouse was attacked by Rosenbaum. Rittenhouse was carrying an AR-style rifle as he was walking down the street to protect private property from looters.

It is disappointing to see supposedly pro-Second Amendment businesses fold to the mob. Although the Left is very effective at mass politics and causing certain businesses to get cancelled, some businesses will have to take a stand. Submission to these radicals only encourages them to become bolder in their attacks.
