A number of recent seemingly unrelated events have come to my attention which shows that the tide is turning against radical leftists across America that for too long have been allowed to violate the rights of others.
EXAMPLE #1 - FOUL-MOUTHED MAGA HAT SNATCHER MAY FACE FELONY ROBBERY CHARGES
Vitale has stated he does intend to press charges, maintaining that he is not doing so out of revenge, but because "behavior like this is not tolerated in this country."
He also highlights his belief that "if she had been wearing a Malcom X cap or a pro-abortion cap, and I had snatched it off her head and ran down to student life and turned her in and demanded that she be kept from wearing that hat, I very firmly believe that I would be sitting in jail right now."
This is good news on two fronts: 1) The fact that a campus police officer was the one to inform Vitale that Macias' actions were against California law, tells us that college police are sick and tired of seeing this type of behavior go unpunished, and; 2) Conservatives, on and off college campuses, have 'turned the other cheek' too often and incidents like the one shown below, continue to increase in frequency, so actually holding this woman accountable by pressing charges, is a statement in and of itself that conservatives are done with standing down and are prepared to fight back... legally.

EXAMPLE #2 - COLLEGE APPROVES 'PROTEST PUNISHMENT' POLICY
For years now we have seen everything from outright rioting and physical attacks against conservative speakers accepting invitations to speak at college events across the nation, with schools barely giving the offenders a slap on the wrist for their destruction, allowing this behavior to continue without anyone being held accountable for their actions.
While peaceful protests are part of our very rights as Americans, violent protests and rioting is not and never has been a right guaranteed under the U.S. constitution, which is why seeing the University of Wisconsin System leaders approving a policy on Friday that would see students that disrupt campus speeches and presentations, suspended and/or expelled from the University.
The Board of Regents adopted the language on a voice vote during a meeting at the University of Wisconsin-Stout in Menomonie. The policy states that students found to have twice engaged in violence or other disorderly conduct that disrupts others’ free speech would be suspended. Students found to have disrupted others’ free expression three times would be expelled.
I am not sure why someone would have to engage in violence or disorderly conduct twice before being suspended, one time should be enough, but it is a start and a sign that after so many public spectacles have been made across the country by snowflakes that cannot handle the fact that someone is on campus offering a view or opinion that doesn't match their own, some schools are starting to crack down on that type of behavior. Kudos to UW!
Democratic opponents to this policy once again are attempting to conflate legitimate peaceful protesters with violent thugs, by claiming "This policy will chill and suppress free speech on this campus and all campuses," with another Democratic politician asking "Who’s going to show up to a protest if they think they could be potentially expelled?"
Perfect examples of intellectual dishonesty.
As to the first assertion: The violent, black clad, masked little thugs attacking peaceful protesters are the ones "chilling and suppressing" free speech, this policy will help guarantee those constitutional rights are no longer trampled on. To the second guy's question, "peaceful protesters" are the ones that will show up because they don't disrupt the presentations of other speakers, so they know they won't be "potentially expelled."
EXAMPLE #3 - TRUMP AFFIRMS RELIGIOUS LIBERTY, ABORTIONS INDUSTRY GOES NUTS
One of the most offensive and egregious parts of Obamacare was the employer mandate that forced employers to provide coverage to workers that included birth control and abortifacients, even if it went against their religious beliefs. It was a highly controversial aspect of the bill, explained well by National Review back in 2015:
The nonprofit plaintiffs in these cases — faith-based schools and organizations such as Catholic Charities and Thomas Aquinas College — have a religious objection to hiring any insurance company that will provide their employees with coverage for abortifacients or contraceptives. They believe that hiring or maintaining a contract with any such company would make them complicit in sin. But the government’s regulatory mandate forces the plaintiffs to do exactly that: hire a company that will provide the objectionable coverage to their own employees in connection with their employer-based health plans.
Under the mandate, the plaintiffs will be subject to crushing penalties if they drop their health plans. And they will also be subject to crushing penalties if they attempt to contract with an insurance company to provide health coverage in a manner consistent with their religious beliefs — i.e., plans with a full range of health-care services that exclude coverage for abortifacients and contraceptives.
Trump signed an executive order in April that ordered a number of federal agencies, including HHS, to find a solution to employers with conscience-based objections to the Obamacare provision. A host of churches, non-profits and schools have come out against the measure since its inception, claiming it encroaches upon religious freedom.
Friday’s announcement will likely be a net-win for social conservatives and religious groups, but has the potential to land the administration in hot water with Democrats.
Predictably, liberals, Democrats and the abortion industry went nuts, claiming President Trump is taking birth control away from women, when absolutely nothing is preventing those that work for companies or organizations that have a religious issue with providing coverage for contraceptives and abortifacients, from going out and paying for their own birth control.
As Breitbart reports, Trump kept a promise he made to the Little Sisters of the Poor and other Americans of faith, with this new rule.
Penny Nance, president of Concerned Women for America says Trump has made his promise to the Little Sisters of the Poor and other Americans of faith a reality.
“And that is the story to me,” she continues. “The story should be that this is a president who is truly committed to liberty. He is committed to America, and he is working to keep his word to the American people. That is incredibly honorable and noble.”
“So, on behalf of the hundreds of thousands of women I represent, we just want to say a big ‘Thank you!’ to President Trump and his team for this historic stance in support of religious liberty,” Nance applauds. “CWA will continue to lift him and the White House in prayer as they continue to tackle the challenges ahead.”
For the last eight years, those of faith have felt persecuted as the Obama administration supported policies which directly attacked religous freedoms, from changing the very definition of "marriage" to pushing policies that would allow members of the opposite sex to use bathrooms of those of an opposing sex, to the employer mandate on contraceptives, and much, much more, so to see President Trump promise to fix this issue, then charge the HHS to find a way to give religious freedoms back, to implementing that method once they did so.... is definitely turning of the tide in America.
EXAMPLE #4 - FBI HIGHLIGHTS DANGERS OF 'BLACK IDENTITY EXTREMISTS' GROUPS
From BLM's attacks against police to the violent rhetoric and actions of other black identity extremists (BIE) groups, we have seen police executions, attacks, ambushes and a culture of violence against law enforcement. A recently released report shows that the The FBI Counterterrorism Division warned about the potential violence that could come from members of “Black Identity Extremists” (BIE), as reported by The Daily Caller.
Below we see some excellent examples by videographer Tim Pool as to why these groups that were allowed to run rampant, unchecked in their violent uprisings for past eight years, most definitely should be on the FBI's radar.
We are starting to see these types of actions on the part of schools and the Trump administration happen more frequently, and while these appear to be unrelated in nature, in reality they all highlight how the tide is starting to turn, over a wide spectrum of areas.
Conservative are starting to stand up, speak out, fight back. At colleges, we have seen more and more state lawmakers start speaking up, we have seen the Trump administration make public statements highlighting the free speech issues across the nation's campuses, and slowly, but surely, some of these universities and colleges have begun to implement changes for the better.
Policy changes started as a dribble because the administration was new, policies had to be scrutinized, solutions had to be found, legal issues had to be addressed, before action could be taken, but we are seeing some positive change happening.
