Contestant Gave Own Shocking ‘Politically Incorrect’ Intro At Miss America, Then Lost Pageant

Published

on

In a time when people speak of raising awareness and sacrificing everything to stand up for what they believe in, some folks bring their “A” game right from the start. Many use the platform they are given for a variety of things, though many people do not often think of a beauty pageant as such a platform. Most associate it with vapid blondes talking about their wish for world peace or some other politically correct drivel such as when Miss Virginia Emili McPhail was asked what advice she would give to players about whether to stand or to continue to kneel during the national anthem in protest.

The 22-year-old went with the politically correct “safe” answer in the onstage question. McPhail said that the players have every right to kneel, replying that not standing during the anthem “is a right you have, but it’s also not about kneeling. She also said they should be acknowledged not for protesting the anthem, but for protesting police brutality. She is a graduate of Hollins University, where she studied communications.

Fox News reports “Some NFL players have said they take a knee during the playing of the anthem to protest police brutality and social injustice.

The protest has deeply divided the country, with some calling it disrespectful to the American flag and the military. President Trump has repeatedly criticized the NFL and the players over their actions.

After the competition, McPhail was asked by reporters if she was concerned that her answer would alienate those with opposing views.

“You’re entitled to your own opinion, but I stood up for what I believed was right,” McPhail said.”

Miss Michigan, aka Emily Sioma, took a different tactic. Despite not winning, Miss Michigan might be on her way to the most-viewed pageant moment ever for far more important—and even more badass—reasons.

Rather than use her introductory moment to highlight her personal achievements which is the usual custom – you know how it goes, “Hi, here’s all about me…but enough about that! Let’s talk more about ME!” – Emily chose to take the opportunity to remind the world that Flint, Michigan is STILL after FOUR years facing a water crisis.

“From the state with 84 percent of the U.S. freshwater but none for its residents to drink,” Sioma said, “I am Miss Michigan Emily Sioma.”

And cue that mic drop…

Sioma did not win the Miss America crown. That honor went to Nia Franklin or Miss New York, however, Miss Michigan, well let’s just say she stole the show during the opening interviews and put that image of vapid beauty queen to shame.

After nearly four years of an ongoing water crisis where something as vital as fresh drinking water right here in America, the lead-contaminated water pipes in Flint, Michigan are finally getting replaced. This is after a lawsuit in which the city of Flint and the state of Michigan were forced to agree via court order to fund the project replacing around 18,000 lead water lines by the year 2020. According to the settlement now filed with the courts, the state of Michigan is required to earmark $87 million for the project and to also set aside an additional $10 million for just in case.

Until all the pipes are replaced, the state will still have to deliver bottled water to residents under court settlement and ensure that homes are properly equipped with water filters as well as being properly installed. The people of Flint have dealt with a lot in the past few years.

NBC News reports “Flint’s water crisis began as a cost-cutting measure in 2014, when the city switched its water source from Detroit’s municipal service to water from the Flint River, which it treated itself. Unlike Detroit’s, the Flint system didn’t use chemicals to inhibit materials in the water that accelerate corrosion in lead and iron pipework — potentially exposing the city’s 100,000 residents to lead and other contaminants.”

Adding insult to injury after the city of Flint created the situation leading to residents’ lead exposure, the city warned 8,000 Flint homeowners that they could get slapped with tax liens if they are more than six months behind on their water accounts. Failure to pay a tax lien could eventually result in foreclosure. So basically the city of Flint said we are going to poison you and force you to pay for it. If you don’t? Well, we will just take your house.

And Sioma put all that on Front Street with just a few short words.

According to Elle Magazine – Sioma is from Grass Lake, Michigan and a graduate of the University of Michigan. She did not kneel, nor did she make millions in endorsement campaigns. She showed no disrespect toward any group and yet her message was loud and clear. She used her voice, raising awareness about a vital and important issue affecting people of color in America’s poorest city with an ethnic demographic that is 57% black and only 37% white. A city not even her own, yet believing her platform was one where she could be heard, she chose to speak and the world listened. World…stand up! Pay attention! THIS is what a leader looks like.

Cher’s Moment Of Lucidity: ‘CA Can’t Take Care Of Its Own Let Alone Thousands Of Illegals’

Published

on

Cher has said many outrageous comments in the past… most have to do with Trump-hatred while drinking. In a hell-has-frozen-over moment, Cher said over the weekend that Los Angeles, California, “can’t take care of its own” residents, much less newly arrived illegal and legal immigrants. Wow… did she just become a Republican? She’s right of course but hearing it from someone like Cher is mind-blowing.

She’s not alone in wondering how California, who is a flat broke sanctuary state, is able to admit and take care of thousands of illegal immigrants when they can’t even handle their own rising rates of homeless, veterans, and poverty-stricken Americans. This isn’t something you ‘tax’ your way out of.

“I Understand Helping struggling Immigrants, but MY CITY (Los Angeles) ISNT TAKING CARE OF ITS OWN. WHAT ABOUT THE 50,000+Citizens WHO LIVE ON THE STREETS.PPL WHO LIVE BELOW POVERTY LINE,& HUNGRY? If My State Can’t Take Care of Its Own(Many Are VETS)How Can it Take Care Of More,” Cher stated.

Now, let’s have some perspective here before we embrace the likes of Cher. She had this revelation after President Trump threatened to release thousands of border crossers and illegal aliens into sanctuary cities and states, like California unless the country’s asylum laws are changed. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed that the White House is considering the plan. That certainly includes Cher’s beloved Los Angeles. She’s all for open borders until it really impinges on her real estate… then she suddenly sees the light.

From Breitbart:

“In response, Democrat mayors across the country — like New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and Oakland, California Mayor Libby Schaaf — have welcomed bringing illegal aliens and border crossers to their cities.

“While left-wing mayors say they will continue to admit any and all illegal and legal immigrants, Los Angeles is home to the second largest homeless population in the country, second to only New York City. About 50,000 residents of Los Angeles are homeless and about 7.5 percent of California’s American Veteran population is homeless.

“As the city remains crippled by homelessness and skyrocketing housing costs, Los Angeles metro area is also home to the second largest illegal alien population — with nearly a million illegal aliens living in the region, according to Pew Research Center.

“Last year, economists at Deakin University found that immigration — both illegal and legal — drives up housing prices on average, with the researchers writing “we find no evidence that house prices sink as a result of immigration.”’

Cher’s latest stance is a 180-degree reversal from a September 2017 tweet, when she offered to “take a dreamer” into her home and business. “Those Who Can Must Take a DREAMER In2 Their Home & Protect Them,” she wrote. “I’m Ready 2 Do This & Others in MY BUSINESS WILL DO THE SAME. SANCTUARY.” The woman is a shameless hypocrite.

Michael Knowles savored the irony of Cher’s about-face on Twitter: “I’ll never forget where I was and what I was doing the moment Cher became a Republican.” There were many, many others struck by Cher’s new conservatism… shallow as it may be. After Cher’s freak-out over more illegal aliens coming to her sanctuary city, President Trump hit a home run: “I finally agree with Cher!”

Donald Trump Jr. nailed Cher over her words on Instagram: “Welcome to the Republican Party Cher!!! 🤣 These Hollywood liberals have some balls. They advocate for these insane leftist policies and open borders when they can stick the burden on you, on your towns, your schools, and your hospitals but if it starts to effect them all of a sudden they’re not so thrilled at the inflow of illegals. What hypocrisy. Remember Libs you wanted them. We offers to give them all to you. What’s the issue? Iits like #thegreennewdeal you want it, you think it’s great, anyone who opposes it is terrible… but then Republicans want you to vote on it and you’re outraged that they would let you vote on your incredible plan. At the vote there are no yeas. Just stop being so full of crap. Everyone knows we have a hard enough time making things work for Americans. We can’t dilute American’s benefits and all of our systems so as to care for millions from all over the world. We need immigration, but how about some immigrants who come here based on merit? What the problem with that? Maybe they won’t be dependent on government and have to vote for you?Anything other than a merit system will further greatly strain actual Americans and make their lives much harder. Stop the bullshit and let’s use some common sense for once. #BuildTheWall #maga”

It appears that Cher wants to be a true liberal only when current events don’t affect her. Previously she has called for Dems to allow Trump to have funding for the wall. Now, this. But she just can’t get past her deep-seated hatred of President Trump to come out all the way and say this insane and suicidal illegal immigration must stop. Well, maybe as Cloward and Piven works against those who instituted it, we will see the collapse of these socialist enclaves. Stars such as Cher will have to sleep in the proverbial beds they have made. That would be true justice. #WeBuildTheWall

MAJOR VICTORY: Colorado Drops 2nd Case Against Christian Baker After Continuous LGBT Harassment

Published

on

Jack Phillips is a Christian cake artist who has found himself in hot water in Colorado over the last several years. He refused to do a cake that violated his religious beliefs and that’s when the trouble started for him. The issue worked its way once to the Supreme Court where he won but was in the process of making its way to the high court once more. Colorado has now decided to drop the case in a major victory for Christians.

After facing years of constant persecution for his religious beliefs, Phillips can now rest easy and get back to doing what he loves. The LGBT activists and the Colorado Civil Rights Commission can take a hike. The Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a Christian nonprofit that advocates for religious freedom and traditional values, announced Tuesday that the Colorado Civil Rights Commission “will dismiss its most recent charges against cake artist Jack Phillips in the wake of newly discovered evidence of the state’s ongoing hostility toward religious freedom.”

In the first go-around, Phillips prevailed at the Supreme Court in Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission. He was originally targeted for refusing to do a transgender celebration cake due to his religious beliefs concerning sex and gender.

From the ADF:

“On June 26, 2017, the same day that the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to take up Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, an attorney asked cake artist Jack Phillips to create a cake designed pink on the inside and blue on the outside, which the attorney said was to celebrate a gender transition from male to female. Phillips declined the request because the custom cake would have expressed messages about sex and gender identity that conflict with his religious beliefs. Less than a month after the Supreme Court ruled for Phillips in his first case, the state surprised him by finding probable cause to believe that Colorado law requires him to create the requested gender-transition cake.”

In response to renewed harassment against Phillips, the ADF filed Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Elenis:

“We’re pleased that the state will be dismissing its case against Jack,” said ADF attorney Kristen Waggoner, who represented Phillips in Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission in the first precedent-setting case. “This is the second time the state has launched a failed effort to prosecute him. While it finally appears to be getting the message that its anti-religious hostility has no place in our country, the state’s decision to target Jack has cost him more than six-and-a-half years of his life, forcing him to spend that time tied up in legal proceedings.”

“Jack’s victory is great news for everyone. Tolerance and respect for good-faith differences of opinion are essential in a diverse society like ours. They enable us to peacefully coexist with each other. But the state’s demonstrated and ongoing hostility toward Jack because of his beliefs is undeniable,” noted Waggoner.”

This has been a hot topic in conservative and Christian politics. Daily Wire writer and podcast host Matt Walsh rightfully torched “vengeful bullies of the LGBT lobby” for continuously targeting Phillips.

“This is straightforward persecution,” stated Walsh. “This is a government agency seeking to destroy a private citizen for his personal beliefs. The bureaucrats behind this campaign have now officially forfeited the claim that they are really seeking equality or tolerance or whatever. They know, like we all do, that Phillips was railroaded here. There aren’t even any hurt feelings for them to worry about. Scardina’s feelings weren’t hurt. He got exactly what he wanted, which was to not get what he asked for. He’s a conniving, scheming fraud. And so are the despots in the commission. No matter your ideological leanings, you should be outraged about this.”

Walsh is absolutely right here. Constitutional rights apply to all Americans including Christians. That Colorado commission should be disbanded and reformed after persecuting Phillips the way they did. They tried to bully a Christian into violating his faith… something they would never do to other religions. Today is a great victory for those of the Christian faith in Colorado and the righting of an egregious wrong.
