LGBT Community Freaks After Restaurant Warns: “No Transgender Bathrooms…Don’t Get Caught In The Wrong One”

Before today, the Steak & Catfish Barn was just a popular fried food paradise enjoyed by Oklahoma City locals and whose only real claim to fame was being featured on an episode of “Man vs. Food” with Adam Richman.  But that all changed when the restaurant’s owner, Bob Warner, posted a sign clarifying his bathroom policy:

“WE DO NOT HAVE A TRANSGENDER BATHROOM

 

SO DON’T BE CAUGHT IN THE WRONG ONE

 

THANK YOU, BOB”

Despite having never actually visited the restaurant in question, Paula Schonauer, a transgender Oklahoma City resident, was outraged by Bob’s “implied threat.”  Per NBC:

“I was disturbed,” Schonauer said. “It was really a let down.”

 

She said the message is discriminatory and the last sentence scares her.

 

“That sign has an implied threat and a threat that’s very real to me,” Schonauer said.

 

“You’ve got this sign implying a threat of potential violence against somebody for going to pee. That’s not the Oklahoma standard. That’s not what it means to be American. That’s just wrong,” Troy Stevenson, with Freedom Oklahoma, said.

Of course, the real story here is that the sign had been posted at the restaurant for 10 full months without an issue before NBC was tipped off…which, hardly sounds like the national crisis that our politicians have made it out to be.

Meanwhile, when confronted by NBC on the issue, Bob simply implied he, like about 99% of the rest of the population, couldn’t care less about the bathroom politics consuming 75% of liberal D.C. politicians’ time these days and was just trying to prevent anyone from getting roughed up by the “redneck guys” that frequent his fine establishment.

Restaurant owner Bob Warner told NewsChannel 4 his sign is not a threat, just a warning.

 

“We have a lot of redneck guys that come in here. Truck drivers and everything. They’re big husky guys and I said ‘man alive!’ If their wife or their little girl walked in that bathroom and a man followed them in there, I wouldn’t have a restaurant,” Warner said.

 

He said the intent of his message is to protect his property and customers, including those who are transgender.

 

“I don’t want to see nobody hurt,” Warner said.

Apparently those “redneck guys” don’t subscribe to the notion that people get to casually choose their gender…that kind of backwards mentality is so six months ago.

Has The Deep State Begun Its Revenge On Trump?

Authored by Nick Giambruno via InternationalMan.com,

The Deep State is set to prick the largest bubble in human history today…

The Deep State is the permanently entrenched “national security” bureaucracy – the top tier of the military, the CIA, FBI, NSA, etc. It also includes the Federal Reserve, the quintessential Establishment institution.

They all hate President Trump. They did everything possible to stop him from taking office. None of it worked. They fired all of their bullets, but he still wouldn’t go down.

Of course, the Deep State could still try to assassinate Trump. It’s obvious the possibility has crossed his mind. He’s taken the unusual step of supplementing his Secret Service protection with loyal private security.

But for now, anyway, the Deep State’s next move is to pin the coming stock market collapse on Trump. He’s the perfect fall guy.

When people think “Greater Depression,” they’ll think “Donald Trump.”

Right now, the Federal Reserve is the Deep State’s weapon of choice.

The economy has been on life support since the 2008 financial crisis. The Fed has pumped it up with unprecedented amounts of “stimulus.” This has created enormous distortions and misallocations of capital that need to be flushed.

Think of the trillions of dollars in money printing programs, euphemistically called quantitative easing (QE) 1, 2, and 3. Meanwhile, with zero and even negative interest rates in many countries, rates are the lowest they’ve been in 5,000 years of recorded human history.

On top of that, the too-big-to-fail banks are even bigger than they were in 2008. They have more derivatives, and they’re much more dangerous.

If the Deep State wants to trigger a stock market collapse on par with 1929, it just has to pull the plug on the extraordinary life support measures it’s used since the last crisis.

This outcome is already baked in the cake. It’s just a matter of when… and there’s a good chance “when” is today.

In December 2015, the Fed raised interest rates for the first time in almost a decade, from 0% to a mere 0.25%. It kept rates there until last December, when it raised them to 0.50%.

The Fed also announced it would accelerate rate hikes throughout 2017 – three in total. It will probably announce these rate hikes during the seven remaining Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meetings scheduled for 2017.

This means the Deep State could trigger its controlled demolition today.

Yesterday's Fed rate hike (which will likely be the weakest period of economic growth for a rate-hike since 1980) could help prick the massive bubble in the stock and bond markets.

Trump recently said:

What happens if that interest rate goes up 2, 3, 4 points? We don’t have a country.

In any case, I think some of this year’s rate hikes will be much bigger than the 0.25% most expect. The Fed could pull a series of 0.50% rate hikes… or go even bigger.

Anything greater than the normal 0.25% tempo would shock the market—and seem designed to hurt Trump.

Trump seems aware of the situation. He recently said, “They’re keeping the rates down so that everything else doesn’t go down.”

He’s also said that “we have a very false economy” and the stock market is a “big, fat, ugly bubble.”

During the campaign, Trump called Fed Chair Janet Yellen “highly political.” At that point, he said the Fed should raise interest rates but wouldn’t because of “political reasons.” (Raising rates before the election would have hurt Hillary Clinton.)

Now, even a small rate increase is a lethal threat to the US budget. The US government currently needs over $400 billion from taxpayers just to pay the interest on its debt. Tax receipts are just over $2 trillion.

If interest rates rise…

  • 1%, the government would need over $600 billion to pay the interest on its debt.

  • 2%, it would need over $800 billion.

  • 3%, it would need $1 trillion.

  • 4%, it would need over $1.2 trillion, or over half of what it currently snatches from taxpayers—again, just to pay the interest.

Clearly, none of this is sustainable.

The Deep State is planning moves during Trump’s first 100 days in office that could change everything in sudden and unexpected ways.

Utilis takes top water innovation prize at Imagine H2O for tech that finds leaks underground

 An Israeli tech startup called Utilis has taken top honors at Imagine H2O this year, for technology that can detect underground leaks in underground, potable water supply systems through analysis of satellite imagery. Americans waste 1 trillion gallons of water every year thanks to leaky faucets, faulty sprinkler systems and other small systems. Utilis’ tech can find leaks to systems… Read More
