Restaurant Manager Where Secretary Nielsen
Was Mobbed ‘Happy About What Happened’

Daily Caller, by Julia Cohen

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 6/20/2018 11:00:04 PM

The Mexican restaurant where Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was swarmed by protesters Tuesday in Washington, D.C., took no action to quell the protesters or ensure Nielsen’s safety, a manager told The Daily Caller News Foundation on Wednesday.“We are not upset the protesters came here and we are not upset even if it was any of our staffers [who tipped off] the protesters,” the MXDC Cocina Mexicana manager, who refused to give his name, told TheDCNF. “We are happy about what happened.”Police responded to the incident, USA Today reported. The manager also said that, to his knowledge, no

Meanwhile the CEO of Starbucks turned himself and his organization inside out over perceived rudeness to a couple of black guys who wouldn’t buy anything but wanted to hang out and use the restroom.

What is the name and address of this slop house? Tell everybody you know and even those you don´t to NOT go there.
This is terrible, but not unexpected. Perhaps some health department official can do an extensive inspection and shut down the joint for UNSANITARY conditions.

Maybe ICE needs to talk to his employees. Does he e-verify for his new hires? How about a food inspector?

What I hate most is the immigrants who come here "for a better life" and still hate US.

Don´t boycott this place, go in, buy the cheapest thing on the menu and start berating the other customers for being there.
That way you would not be trespassing as you are a paying customer.
That is obviously how the restaurant believes it´s customers should be treated, so oblige them.

Well someone in the restaurant had to notify the Democrat Socialists that Secretary Neilsen was there, as chances are the Socialist protestors just did not by happenstance find where she was eating dinner.

You have to figure that it was restaurant management or wait staff, because they did not call the police after the protestors disrupted their customer’s dinners. It would not be the people working in the kitchen as they are most likely all illegal aliens who would not have a clue as how to contact a bunch of socialist protestors.

Since the Democrats have turned legitimate immigration law enforcement initiatives into political footballs, you have to figure that any business that publically takes sides, like this one did, is bound to loose a lot of customers.

Sounds like Poster#7 is spot-on to something....A restaurant that does not ´protect´ customers while they are eating, is most likely cutting other corners.... They are certainly not protecting their business 9or its liscense0 by letting a riot take place in house. The employees surely are not worrying about their customers, or the service they should be delivering. The restaurant,MXDC, is certainly one place in Washington to avoid.

Go and read their reviews They are being blasted . A few nasties who agree with protesters but reviews from those dining at time of protest are highly critical. Most effective reviews include negative comments on food, service, ambience, prices as not everyone is political Though it doesn´t hurt to comment that one doesn´t feel safe there and management permitted chaos

Celebrity chef Todd English has been accused of sexual harassment by a waitress at his Plaza Hotel. She joins six other English employees who filed a lawsuit in August alleging repeated instances of sexual harassment at the Todd English Food Hall in the Plaza Hotel in New York.

According to the New York Post, server Gabrielle Eubank recently filed a court complaint in which she alleged English and other staff members sexually harassed her while she was an employee there.

Eubank´s complaint alleges that English approached her while she was working at a party and began hugging her and kissing her on the cheeks repeatedly.

"Mr. English then began flagrantly propositioning Ms. Eubank on the floor, saying she was ´sexy´ and that he´s ´surprised you´re still single,´ the court papers say. "Mr. English then attempted to kiss Ms. Eubank on the lips, forcing her to turn away at the last moment."

Her complaint was added to a complaint filed against the Plaza Hotel in August by six other female employees, who complained of an institutional culture of sexual harassment at the Todd English Food Hall.

Cockroaches would do it for me when reading a review. I once found a huge one outside the Ladies Room at Longhorn. I turned around and grabbed a male server and told him he needed to take care of it. He said it wasn´t his job! A YOUNG FEMALE server handled it. Never went back there! That said, reviews are a great way for payback. I would also say that if you choose to go there, don´t expect anyone to keep you safe if there is a gunfight or large crowd attacking customers. Won´t happen! You´re on your own. I think the SService should be all over that place along with Code enforcement! They should show up ever week!!

The socialist protestors had to have time to organize and travel to that restaurant by knowing beforehand when Secretary Neilsen and the DHS people accompanying her would be at the restaurant.

The heads up mostly likely came from restaurant management right after they received Secretary Neilsen’s table reservation as it is doubtful that she would have gone to the restaurant with other people without a reservation.

Restaurants are major employers of low wage illegal aliens, so it is not a good idea for any specific restaurant that may have illegal aliens employed in their kitchen to get crosswise with a person who manages the complete Border Patrol and Immigration and Customs Enforcement operations, because as they say, what goes around comes around!

To understand the left, you have to understand human nature. The strategy of the left is to capitalize on unhappiness. Many, if not most people, are unhappy about something in their lives, and anything you do to better their situation will only result in something else about which they will be unhappy. You can see this in the unremitting criticism of the president, ostensibly predicated on an imaginary collusion with Russia and in the anti-gentrification movements spreading through our urban areas. In both cases, Democrats fan the flames of discontent. The President- If you read nothing else in the sea of

Years ago, we flew into Newark airport in New Jersey after almost three years living abroad as expats -- mostly in St. Petersburg, Russia.

The federal government owns 640 million acres in the U.S., or roughly 28 percent of the nation’s entire landmass. The BLM manages 248.3 million acres of public land, more than any other agency, according to a March 2017 report by the Congressional Research Service.

CLEARWATER — Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri announced Friday that his agency will not arrest a man deputies say shot and killed another man during an argument over a handicap parking space. The incident falls under Florida’s self-defense law known as "stand your ground," the sheriff said during a news conference. The law gives immunity to those in fear of their lives who use force to defend themselves. The shooting "is within the bookends of ‘stand your ground’ and within the bookends of force being justified," the sheriff said, later adding, "I’m not saying I agree with it, but I don’t make

Before the word "resignation" became a euphemism for being fired, it connoted a sense of public integrity and personal honor. Attorney General Elliot Richardson and his deputy, William Ruckelshaus, showed both qualities when they resigned from the Nixon administration during the Saturday Night Massacre in 1973. Jimmy Carter’s secretary of state, Cyrus Vance, did likewise when he resigned during the Iran hostage crisis in 1980. Assuming Mike Pompeo and John Bolton still have their own senses intact, they, too, should resign following the epic disgrace of the U.S.-Russia summit inHelsinki on Monday. So should their senior staff. I don’t suggest

In the past few days, President Trump has given at least some Republicans reason to express displeasure over his relationship with Russia. First he performed a pathetic ritual of subservience before Vladimir Putin, standing beside the Russian leader — after a private meeting between the two, which no aides were permitted to attend — and dismissing the copious evidence of a Russian attack on the 2016 election in deference to Putin’s word. Then we learned that Putin had suggested that we make Americans available to the Kremlin for questioning, including Michael McFaul, the former U.S. ambassador to Russia, in exchange

A research group in New Jersey has taken a fresh look at postelection polling data and concluded that the number of noncitizens voting illegally in U.S. elections is likely far greater than previous estimates. As many as 5.7 million noncitizens may have voted in the 2008 election, which put Barack Obama in the White House. The research organization Just Facts, a widely cited, independent think tank led by self-described conservatives and libertarians, revealed its number-crunching in a report on national immigration.

Last Friday, Maine Democrat Zak Ringelstein wasn’t ready to consider himself a formal member of the Democratic Socialists of America, even if he appreciated the organization’s values and endorsement in his bid to become a United States senator. Three days later, he told The Associated Press that was ready to become the only major-party Senate candidate in the nation to be a dues-paying democratic socialist. The swift evolution is latest evidence of a nationwide surge in the strength and popularity of an organization that, until recently, operated on the fringes of the liberal movement’s farthest left flank.

President Donald Trump demanded on Friday that the ´$40,000,000 commissioner´ of the NFL suspend players for a whole season if they kneel during national anthem more than once. In a rehash of last year´s controversy, the President took to Twitter to blast NFL commissioner Roger Godell for not doing enough to stem the tide of players protesting racial inequality in America. ´The NFL National Anthem Debate is alive and well again - can´t believe it!,´ Trump wrote in the tweet. ´Isn´t it in contract that players must stand at attention, hand on heart? The $40,000,000 Commissioner must now make a stand.
