    $15 minimum wage hike is hitting, hurting NYC restaurants



    Big Apple restaurants are feeling the heat from minimum wage hikes, cutting staff hours and even closing kitchens as they struggle to shoulder the extra payroll costs.


    Gabriela’s Restaurant and Tequila Bar, a margarita and taco staple on the Upper West Side for the past 25 years, is closing at the end of September — and it has been a long, painful road downhill, according to its mom-and-pop owners.


    Since the $15-an-hour minimum wage hit New York City in December, Liz and Nat Milner say, they’ve been forced to slash their full- and part-time staff to 45 people from 60. Quality has suffered, they admit, and customers have noticed: They’re not coming in like they used to, and when they do, they’re spending less.


    “We started by having to let go of the ladies who hand-made our tortillas. It’s certainly better when you can make your tortillas fresh for every taco,” Nat Milner said. “It made sense at $8 an hour but not at $15.”


    Gabriela’s was then forced to lay off “two overnight cleaners, a whole level of middle management, the general manager, the extra servers we’d keep on in case it got busy — and then we started cutting hours.”


    “I’m not against people making more money,” Milner added. “These people have worked for me for 20 years. But taxes, groceries, everything is going up and people have a little less money to spend on guacamole and tequila.”


    Gabriela’s isn’t alone. In a survey of 324 full-service restaurants, the New York City Hospitality Alliance found that 76.5 percent of respondents cut staff hours and 36.3 percent eliminated jobs, including whole layers of middle management, in response to mandated wage increases.

    Yesterday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced he would refuse to allow State Department officials to testify before the Congressional committees on impeachment.



    This was after Democrats in the House violated fundamental principles, contacted State Department officials directly and told them NOT to contact legal counsel.

    Democrat lawmakers also requested documents from the Pompeo State Department on Ukraine.



    Today the State Department sent over the documents.

    But they weren’t what the Democrats were expecting!



    The Trump administration sent over documents on Hillary Clinton’s collusion with Ukraine in the 2016 election and the Biden Family’s massive pay-for-play with the Ukrainian regime!
    Zing!




    Rudy Giuliani discussed this major Trump troll on Hannity tonight.

    I LOVE THIS! I wish everytime they asked for reports they would get factual evidence on Biden and Hillary that is known to be fact with nothing being done about it. just keep sending it to the Dems over and over.

    Democrat Chairmen Claim Giuliani Affidavits Regarding Biden Crimes Are “Conspiracy” – Ignore Oath to Uphold Constitution!



    Congressional Democrat leaders of committees working to impeach President Trump were presented with information regarding crimes related to Obama’s Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and his Vice President Joe Biden. Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, Foreign Affairs Chairman Eliot Engel and Elijah Cummings, the chairman of Oversight & Reform, have decided to ignore defy their oath and ignore the criminal acts!



    Democrat lawmakers requested documents from the Pompeo State Department on Ukraine. So yesterday the State Department complied. But they weren’t what the Democrats were expecting!



    The Trump administration sent over documents on Hillary Clinton’s collusion with Ukraine in the 2016 election and the Biden Family’s massive pay-for-play with the Ukrainian regime!


    Rudy Giuliani discussed this on the Hannity Show last night on FOX – Via Hannity:



    According to Bloomberg:

    “The documents provided by the inspector general included a package of disinformation, debunked conspiracy theories, and baseless allegations” three Democratic House committee chairmen said in a statement released Wednesday night.


    Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, Foreign Affairs Chairman Eliot Engel and Elijah Cummings, the chairman of Oversight & Reform, were among the lawmakers briefed by Linick [the State Department IG who delivered the documents].


    The documents also contain notes that purport to be from interviews that took place at the office of Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani. Giuliani told CNN on Wednesday evening that some of the documents provided to Congress by the State Department’s inspector general had originated with him.

    Each of these crooked politicians gave an oath at the beginning of the Congressional session to uphold the US Constitution. According to the Heritage Foundation [emphasis added]:

    Under current law any individual elected or appointed to an office of honor or profit in the civil service or uniformed services, except the President, shall take the following oath: “I, [name], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter.” (33 U.S.C. § 3331.) By federal statute, all state officers shall take an oath in the simple form first promulgated in 1789. (4 U.S.C. § 101.)

    The Democrats are politicizing a discussion involving the President of the United States that was classified and leaked while ignoring real crimes laid on their lap because these crimes involve a fellow Democrat!
    The Federalist reported that the person who leaked the President’s classified phone call may not have protection under the whistleblower law:



    Under federal law, whistleblowers within the intelligence community are required to report any allegations of wrongdoing to the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) in order to receive statutory whistleblower protections for their disclosures. The law does not provide any protections to employees or contractors who bypass the process required by law and go directly to Congress, nor does it provide any avenue to disclose classified information to Congress without first going through the ICIG.

    If the complainant or a colleague leaked classified information to Schiff or his committee, those individuals could be subject to criminal liability for illegal and unauthorized disclosure of classified information.


    Per Trending Politics the Federalist also states:

    The communication between the whistleblower and House Democrats prior to the complaint’s filing also raises questions about whether Schiff and his committee staff coordinated with the ICIG regarding the watchdog’s whistleblower forms and guidance stating that first-hand information is required in order for the agency to properly investigate “urgent concern” complaints.


    The new revelations that Schiff and his staff coordinated with the anti-Trump complainant and his colleagues prior to a formal whistleblower complaint also suggest Schiff was less than truthful about his interactions with the whistleblower. On August 28, nearly two weeks before the ICIG formally informed Congress of a pending “urgent concern” whistleblower complaint from an intel operative, Schiff tweeted allegations from the complaint without disclosing their source.

    These Democrat crooks have no intention of upholding the constitution.

    I bet Biden would fail a polygraph if asked about his involvement in election meddling....same for Obama, Clinton, Brennan, Clapper, Lynch, all of those slimy RATs, and the DNC, including unelected bureaucrats in various government agencies.

    Back to Biden....do you think his actions were illegal, and is Trump justified asking a foreign government for help investigating corruption by the former VP?

    A Dallas jury on Tuesday found former police officer Amber Guyger guilty of murder for fatally shooting her unarmed neighbor, Botham Jean, in his own apartment, which she said she mistook as hers.


    The jury deliberated less than 24 hours. The verdict followed a trial that has captured national attention and sparked outrage.
    Judge Tammy Kemp asked Guyger and her lawyers to stand as she delivered the verdict.


    "We the jury unanimously find the defendant, Amber Guyger, guilty of murder as charged in the indictment," Kemp read, as a shriek and hand clap could be heard.


    "No outbursts," Kemp said before announcing a break until 2 p.m.


    Jean's mother immediately threw both arms in the air upon hearing the verdict, then quickly retracted them. Another woman who started to shout in praise was chastised by a court officer. Members of Jean's family sobbed. There were hugs among family members and prosecutors.


    Guyger, her head down, wept at the defense table. Her mother also broke down in tears in the courtroom.


    When the courtroom doors open, people in the hallway applauded and cheered. Some cried on hallway benches and shouts of "Guilty! Guilty" and "Black lives matter" could be heard.


    Guyger, who is white, testified that after working long hours on September 6, 2018, she returned to her Dallas apartment complex and approached what she thought was her apartment. She noticed the door was partially open, and pulled out her service weapon and shot a figure inside in the dark. It turned out she was at the apartment directly above hers -- which belonged to the 26-year-old man Jean, who was black -- and she thought Jean was an intruder.


    More!


    I'm actually surprised. wow
    And the verdict, only 10 years...for MURDER.

    We had a similar incident here a while back. Guy was broken down on the side of the road at 2am when an off-duty cop pulled up in his own vehicle wearing regular clothes. He never identified himself as a cop, drew his gun & ended up shooting the guy when he went to try to get his own gun. The cop lied & tried claiming self defense & probably would have gotten away with it, but unbeknownst to him the entire incident was caught on tape by the tow company the victim was on the phone with. He was charged with manslaughter & attempted murder & was recently sentenced to 25 years.

    And keep in mind...he's only asking those foreign governments that were used by the dems in their whole elaborate election rigging scheme and after election "get Trump" hoaxes. At least that's what it appears like to me. Basically he wants to know what they knew and when they knew it...and whom!
