FREEDOM SHOPPING: Inside A florida Store That Does NOT Require Masks in America

Humanity Is Still In The Game

There is hope in Naples, Florida. A grocery store called Oakes Farms Seed to Table Market makes it abundantly clear that “Mask Exemption” guidelines will be recognized, and “Therefore, if we see you without a mask, we will assume you have a medical condition and we will welcome you inside to support our business.”

NBC News’ Sam Brock did a hit piece on this fine establishment, spotlighting the store’s Optional Masks policy. The press is trying to scorn Oakes Farms’ owner who disputes the official COVID death numbers. (READ: CDC Inflated COVID Death Numbers).

But the real truth is actually a heartwarming source of citizen pride for anti-maskers and people with breathing-related medical conditions, according to sources on the ground.

Citizen activist Chris Nelson conducted a virtual tour of Oakes Farm Seed to Table Market, which of course any patriot can choose to patronize in beautiful Naples, Florida.

Chris Nelson was one of the organizers behind the recent mega-viral anti-masker flash mob at a Target in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The spirited protest angered the globalist elites but re-popularized the song “We’re Not Gonna Take It” by once-popular Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider, who condemned the mob like some kind of establishment scold.

South Florida is engaged in heated mask melodrama in the aftermath of Tampa Bay Bucs’ quarterback Tom Brady’s epic victory for the region in the Super Bowl. Tampa Democrat mayor Jane Castor has been busted not wearing masks while socializing, even during her own mask mandate in Tampa. Meanwhile, Castor is vowing to hunt down anyone who watched the Super Bowl in Tampa in public without a mask, promising that law enforcement will identify the no-maskers. The elites are clearly rattled at the prospect of populist fervor, but many of the elites seem to be just like the people they rule over: They don’t want to wear masks either.

Bank of America Sells Out Gun & Ammo Purchasers as Potential Criminals

Bank of America, it turns out, is selling out their customers who bought guns or ammunition to federal authorities 

Bank of America has said it is required by federal law to comply to requests

U.S.A. -( Bank of America, it turns out, is selling out their customers who bought guns or ammunition to federal authorities as people who should be investigated for ties to the criminal acts witnessed on Capitol Hill on Jan. 6.

Tucker Carlson, of Fox News, uncovered evidence that Bank of America is turning over the private transaction records of its customers to federal investigators it believes need to be probed for “extremism” or even domestic terrorism. The chilling move by the second-largest corporate bank in America with more than 60 million customers and $2.16 trillion in assets was this:

    1. Customers confirmed as transacting, either through bank account debit card or credit card purchases in Washington, D.C. between 1/5 and 1/6.
    2. Purchases made for Hotel/Airbnb RSVPs in DC, VA, and MD after 1/6.
    3. Any purchase of weapons or at a weapons-related merchant between 1/7 and their upcoming suspected stay in D.C. area around Inauguration Day.
    4. Airline related purchases since 1/6.

Did you notice No. 3? Bank of America is vocally antigun, but this is crossing into secret lists, big brother, sci-fi truth-is-stranger-than-fiction territory. The bank’s criteria included any purchase at a gun store, but not just guns. If someone bought a t-shirt, baseball hat, or even a trigger lock, that flagged their account for “review.”

Who Told Who?

Carlson reported that Bank of America identified 211 people and turned that information over to investigators without notifying those customers their private financial transaction data was being shared without their consent. Federal authorities interviewed at least one person, and that individual was cleared of any wrongdoing.

Bank of America dodged Carlson when confronted with the allegations it was singling out customers who made a purchase at a gun store. They said, “We don’t comment on our communications with law enforcement. All banks have responsibilities under federal law to cooperate with law enforcement inquiries in full compliance with the law.”

However, “compliance with the law” here is questionable at best. Bank of America didn’t say that the FBI subpoenaed the information. They only said they “cooperated.” Carlson pointed out that banks are allowed under 12 U.S.C. 3403 to provide information that “may be relevant to a possible violation of any statute or regulation.”

In Bank of America’s estimation, visiting a gun store and buying any product, much less a firearm that is protected by the Second Amendment, is suspicious enough to put their customers on a secret watch list without their knowledge.

The New York Post interviewed New York City’s former top cop who blasted the decision to hand over private financial data.

“That’s just not a good reason to hand over private information. If that’s the way they do business now, then the people of this country really have something to worry about,” said Bernard Kerik, a security consultant who headed the NYPD in 2000 and 2001.

Another former law enforcement official called the move “a fishing expedition.”

In a follow-up, Fox News’ Mark Steyn interviewed former federal prosecutor Francey Hakes, who noted Bank of America’s response was peculiarly-absent of any mention of “search warrants, court orders or subpoenas…” Hakes noted that the Fourth Amendment protects against searches that aren’t “particularized” or when a judge signs off an order to search the records of a specific individual based on evidence.

“Financial information is highly private in this country and is given heightened protection,” she added.

Telegraphed Move

So far, JP Morgan Chase and Wells Fargo haven’t responded if they’ve conducted similar internal search efforts of customer information. Yet, this follows an antigun animus by Bank of America. In 2018, Bank of America announced they would end financial relationships with manufacturers of modern sporting rifles, which they erroneously called “military-style rifle.” The move followed a similar announcement by Citigroup.

Delving into private transactions and using big banks to approve of purchases isn’t a new idea. In fact, this is the fulfillment of New York Times’ columnist Andrew Ross Sorkin’s call for such action and who proposed the notion in 2017 and 2018. It was later parroted by Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke as a potential gun control program.

It also shouldn’t be surprising that big banks with antigun agendas are emboldened to violate their customers’ privacy, turn them out and label them as “extremist” and “domestic terrorist.” The Biden administration yanked the publication of the “Fair Access” banking rule by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency. That gave banks the green light to continue to openly discriminate against firearm business, which is just privatization with a wink-and-nod to continue the illegal Operation Choke Point that was begun under the Obama administration.

It is no longer the Bank of America. It is a gun control cabal working to undermine American freedoms, label gun owners as criminals, and use their customers’ money and information as the tools to get it done. Welcome to the Bank of Gun Control America.

Continuing Gun Voter Betrayals, Rubio Adds Blacklists to Red Flags

I say take him up on it.

The Terror Intelligence Improvement Act would:

  • Consolidate all federal terrorism investigation intelligence under the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), strengthening the FBI’s capabilities and making sure dangerous individuals do not fall through the cracks.
  • Require the FBI Director and the Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) be immediately notified of any request to transfer a firearm to an individual who was the subject of a federal terrorism investigation within the last 10 years.
  • When an individual who was the subject of a federal terrorism investigation within the last 10 years tries to obtain a firearm, allow the U.S. Attorney General to delay the purchase or transfer for up to ten business days and file an emergency petition in court to prevent the transfer. If the court finds probable cause that the individual is or has been engaged in terrorism, the Attorney General may arrest the individual.
  • Protect the due process rights of law-abiding Americans by ensuring emergency petitions filed by the Attorney General are only granted if the transferee receives notice of the hearing and has the opportunity to participate with legal counsel. If the court denies the Attorney General’s petition, the federal government is responsible for all reasonable costs and attorneys’ fees.
  • Require the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community (IC IG) to conduct an audit of the federal government’s terrorism screening and watch list procedures, and identify any problems in the processes of adding or removing individuals from the system. Based on the audit, the IC IG must then submit a report to the Senate and House Intelligence Committees with recommendations for improving the system.

U.S.A. – -( “Senator Marco Rubio introduces bill to suspend gun rights of anyone who has ever been ‘investigated’ for domestic terrorism,”  The Unz Review reported Sunday. “The Senate bill, named the Terror Intelligence Improvement Act, was reentered last week in hopes of exploiting the hysteria surrounding the January 6th Capitol protests. The law intends to violate the civil liberties of American citizens who are not charged or convicted of a crime if somebody is deemed politically dangerous.”


Yes, Rubio tried this before in 2016 as a “kinder, gentler” alternative to a bill being pushed by then-Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid.  No doubt the rationale is if Republicans throw a scrap of flesh to the circling pack of Democrat jackals, it will satisfy them and keep them from pushing through something worse.

Like that works in nature.

You don’t give the gun-grabbers an inch because they will take it and then come back for more. They always have and you’d have to be an idiot not to see it. Their end goal has also been clear for anyone willing to admit the truth to the lie about “commonsense gun safety laws” and see them for what they are (and what their early “leaders’ have admitted to — incremental steps on the way to total disarmament).

And while Rubio’s bill makes noises about “due process,” those are just that. It would still remove guns from citizens not only not convicted of any crime, but not charged with any.  And who among us has the financial resources to take on the government’s virtually limitless reserves in the hopes that the judge won’t be a robed Democrat apparatchik, and/or that the Roberts Supreme Court would hear our appeal if he was?

Then again, “due process” and “Marco Rubio” don’t necessarily go hand-in-hand, as Rubio’s flat-out lie of a promise that “A red flag law will reduce bloodshed and respect the rights of gun owners” shows anyone willing to look behind the weasel words.

So first “red flag laws” and now a “blacklist,” despite NRA assigning Rubio an “A+” rating and telling members he “has a proven record of support for our Second Amendment freedoms,” pointedly adding:

“Opposes Government Blacklists – Voted against denying persons on secret government lists their Second Amendment right to purchase or own a firearm without due process.”

What goes unsaid in all the “national security” flag-waving (ironically much of it being done by politicians who otherwise demonize nationalists as “extremists” and worse), is that if I were a terrorist, I’d want to be on the blacklist. That way, if I wanted to find out if I’d been made, I’d try to buy a gun, see if I was flagged, and plan my next evasion moves accordingly.

Suddenly the list isn’t so secret. I’m no surveillance pro, but isn’t it a cardinal rule not to let your subject know he’s being watched? The thought strikes: Maybe that’s not what this is really about?

OK, but what about all those other items on NRA’s list, all those things we’re told Rubio “opposes” and “supports”?

Most of them are meaningless happy talk: What does “Opposes Anti-Gun Supreme Court Justices” really mean when the whole system is set up to protect them – during their “job interview” – from telling us what the Founders intended when they declared “shall not be infringed”? And it’s easy to say you support permit “reciprocity” when you know the “Republican leadership” has no intentions of bringing a bill to the floor, and when your symbiotic relationship with NRA protects you from answering direct questions about “Constitutional” carry (really “permitless” carry, as gun bans and “gun-free zone” prohibitions, still apply).

That’s not saying Rubio hasn’t voted “right” much of the time and that an overt Democrat gun-grabber wouldn’t have voted “worse.” But the thing about that is, his (and other Republiquislings’) actions on another issue will ultimately undo and reverse every one of those “good” votes:

“Republican Senators Marco Rubio, John Cornyn, Susan Collins, and Thom Tillis will attend a Thursday “summit” meeting hosted by the “American Business Immigration Coalition,” a pro-amnesty group consisting of big business donors, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, as well as the George Soros-funded United We Dream organization.”

We know where that will lead, particularly after Joe Biden fast-tracks millions of illegals on his superhighway to citizenship: All credible polls and all real-world experience in places like California and Virginia demonstrate that “amnesty” and a “pathway to citizenship” for MILLIONS of foreign nationals in this country illegally (and legally, with CURRENT culturally suicidal policies) will overwhelmingly favor Democrats and anti-gunners. This will result in supermajorities in state and federal legislatures that will then be able to pass all kinds of anti-gun edicts. It will also result in confirmations of judges to the Supreme and federal courts who will uphold those edicts and reverse gains made to date.

I know there are some who discourage such talk under the false assertion that we must focus exclusively on the “single issue.” Nonsense. Anything that threatens the right to keep and bear arms IS the single issue. These are the same people who tell us it’s OK for gun owners to consider other issues more important than guns and vote for Joe Biden. Again, nonsense. If appreciation of firearms and shooting was what mattered, we’d have no better friend than Lon Horiuchi. They’re (deliberately!) disregarding that it’s really not about guns at all. It’s about freedom, and nothing is more important than that.

So what do we do about politicians like Rubio?

If we don’t vote for him, we’ll get someone really, really bad, the common excuse goes, pretty confident that in the interim, we’re not going to be doing what we can to look for “primarying” alternatives. Based on the ratio of gun owners complaining about things to the number actually doing the hard and consistent work of organizing to change things, they probably have a point.

“Politics is the art of the possible,” a “gun rights leader” once told me, using silly platitudes to persuade me to tone down on the hardline rhetoric. “The perfect is the enemy of the good.”

How anyone afraid to push the envelope with just words is able to determine what is possible is beyond me. And forgive me for not acknowledging that a flexible-principled political ingrate subverting our efforts from inside the gates is “good.”

“He votes our way 90 percent of the time,  the argument goes. Well then make the damn political rating reflect that. We’re smart enough to know the difference between a “C” and an “A,” and to present things otherwise smacks of cynical deception to maximize fundraising. And here I thought the object was to have an informed membership.

Just for argument’s sake, would you accept that level of “fidelity” from your wife or husband?

COVID-19 Relief Bill Stalled Over Payments to Illegal Aliens



republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

A trillion or two dollars in the COVID-19 relief bill has been stalled by Senate Democrats insisting on payments to illegal aliens, while millions of Americans remain unnecessarily unemployed and hopeless.

POLITICO reports that Democrats are “split” as “progressives rage” in their effort to send more borrowed money to illegal aliens.

“Split” might be putting it all too nicely.

Whatever the case, it took two POLITICO infotainment writers, Burgess Everett and Marriane Levine, to come up with this awful paragraph:

An effort to restrict stimulus checks to undocumented immigrants is blowing a hole in Democrats’ unity in the Biden era, after a bloc of Democrats sided with Republicans over their more progressive colleagues last week. The immigration status of those seeking new stimulus payments is shaping up as a major point of contention among Democrats as the House and Senate write their coronavirus relief bills, presaging the tough fights ahead among the party’s tight majorities in Congress on a politically volatile issue.

The effort is to restrict stimulus checks from illegal aliens, not to them, and “undocumented immigrants” isn’t the correct legal terminology.


Congrats to the Tampa Bay Genderfluid Boating Enthusiasts

The report continues:

Eight Senate Democrats supported an amendment to the Senate’s budget during last week’s marathon vote-a-rama that would prohibit undocumented immigrants from receiving checks, a cast that includes the No. 4 Democratic leader Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.), the chair of the party’s campaign arm Gary Peters (D-Mich.) and senators up for reelection.

Democrats are stuck between two rocks and one hard place.

The first rock is economic reality: We’ve been slowly approaching the death spiral of deficit spending for a long time, but the unnecessary COVID-19 lockdowns have caused Washington to accelerate the pace like Thelma and Louise staring at the Grand Canyon.

The second rock is political reality: The American people, after nearly a year of economic (and emotional) depression, are in no mood to extend our unsustainable largess to people who aren’t even supposed to be here today.

The hard place is the Democrats’ ascendant Progressive wing, which never met a means of fostering racial strife it didn’t like.

Like? Hell, they’re making out in the nightclub bathroom 15 minutes after meeting.

So the faux-moderate Dems like Stabenow and Peters face an unpalatable choice.

They can side with the party’s radicals — and piss off huge swathes of the American electorate while simultaneously speeding us ever-faster towards economic collapse. You and/or your neighbors might be wondering how to make next month’s rent, or whether your favorite restaurant can stay in business another week operating at a measly 25% capacity. But the “caring” progressive wing of the Democrat Party doesn’t seem to care, unless “undocumented immigrants” get a little document worth $1,400 we don’t have.

Or, those faux-moderate Democrats can negotiate a more modest relief bill with the Republicans on the other side of the aisle — and endure years of shrieking from the Woke Wing and their enablers in the mainstream media.

The Twitteratti are going to have an emo rage fit if they don’t get their way.

If I had to guess, the faux-moderate Democrats might just fold to the Woke Wing. In recent years (and maybe not-so-recently), they seem to consider more what is said inside the Beltway and on social media, than they do what their own constituents have to say.

On the other hand, giving government benefits to non-taxpayers is highly unpopular, even amongst voters with more laissez-faire attitudes towards illegal immigration.

So who knows, really, what will happen — or how long millions of hurting Americans will have to wait.

I do know one thing, though. No matter what happens, there are few things more thrilling than hot Blue-on-Blue action.

Go long on popcorn, folks — assuming you can still afford some.

COVID-19 Lockdowns Bear an Eerily Similarity to Castro’s Communism, Cuban American Warns



republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

Armando Christian Pérez, the renowned Grammy-winning rapper known as Pitbull, spoke out about the abuse of power in COVID-19 lockdowns. Pitbull, a first-generation Cuban American whose family escaped from Fidel Castro’s communism, claimed that Castro would be jealous of the power Democratic officials have exercised during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“My family comes from communism, they fled communism, they had everything taken away from them, everybody got murdered, everybody got killed,” Pitbull said in a video on RevoltTV. “That’s the reason me, being a first-generation Cuban American, I look at freedom and I appreciate that s***. I appreciate opportunity. … That comes from the fact that when Castro took over everything, and I’m looking at what’s going here right now.”

“The only person that’s hot… is Castro,” Pitbull added. “He’s going, ‘Y’all did it with a virus? Sh**. Y’all took over the world with a virus? You’ve got to be kidding me.'”

Pitbull noted that Castro “had missiles pointed to the United States of America” but he suggested that the COVID-19 lockdowns have done more damage to America than Russia did in the Cold War.

The rapper warned about Big Tech censorship, likening it to communism. “If anybody is not a part of the narrative we gonna take it off online… which to me smells like… communism,” he said.

Pitbull started to veer into potential conspiracy theory territory, talking about Event 201, a global pandemic exercise run by the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, the World Economic Forum, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation that simulated a coronavirus outbreak. He suggested that “all the main CEOs in the world” resigned shortly before the COVID-19 outbreak in order to cash in. (2019 did have the most CEO departures in one year, but that 1,640 number was not as extreme as Pitbull suggested. More than 1,000 CEOs have lost their jobs annually since 2005, and nearly 1,500 lost their jobs in 2018.)

Despite Pitbull’s veering off into conspiracies, the rapper comes from a family of Cuban immigrants, so his warning about the lockdowns is both significant and chilling.

As Paul Sakka at The Blaze noted, Pitbull’s grandmother fought in the Cuban Revolution on Castro’s side only to realize that she had made a terrible mistake. Fearing the rumors about communist indoctrination camps for children, she sent her two daughters to the United States during Operation Peter Pan, a covert program that brought 14,000 Cuban children to the U.S. between 1960 and 1962. The U.S. government brought Pitbull’s mother and aunt to Florida, and Pitbull’s father would also land there after fleeing the Castro regime.

Pitbull has said he would never play a concert in Cuba so long as the communist Castros control the country. “I won’t perform in Cuba until there’s no more Castro and there’s a free Cuba,” he told The Guardian in 2011. “To me, Cuba’s the biggest prison in the world, and I would be very hypocritical were I to perform there. The people in Cuba, they know what I stand for, and there’s a lot of people in Cuba that stand for the same. But they can’t say it.”

COVID-19 lockdowns and anxiety likely cost more in terms of years of life lost than they save in terms of slowing the spread of the virus, according to a study from Just Facts.

In September, then-Attorney General William Barr called the lockdowns the “greatest intrusion on civil liberties in American history,” besides slavery, which was an intrusion of an altogether different and worse kind.
