The Virginia restaurant owner who kicked out White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders is resigning from a local business group as protesters turn up the pressure.
Stephanie Wilkinson has stepped down from her position as executive director of Main Street Lexington, which is a group that aims to enhance economic growth in the downtown area.
Wilkinson said she felt it was best she stepped aside for the success of the group.
This comes as around a dozen protesters gathered outside the Red Hen restaurant, which has remained closed since the incident last week.

(The comments are cynical about this story but there is a link to a hard news source on this story, and I know of a way to make any drug absorb through the skin, but do not wish to post it here, Suffice it to say it can happen and its not hard. One hoped the police have footage of who put these flyers on the cars and that we find out what group with what agenda did this and fast.(
6. Bulgarian TV news clip discussing the new plan for stopping mass migration, and more, stopping Germany from sending its tens of thousands of ‘extra’ migrants back to the countries they travelled through. Like Bulgaria.
Thank you EB., Richard, M., Wrath of Khan, Xanthippa, Yucki, and many many more who posted links over the past day or so and beyond. For new readers to the site, its worth taking a dive into the comments under the Reader’s Links post each day for a more complete look at what everyone has gathered.
Below, an Email alert from Spencer Fernando on more methods the Trudeau government is using to silence dissent.
ALERT: Justin Trudeau Is Trying To Silence Us.
The Trudeau government is taking concrete steps to silence our voices.
In just the past few days, the Trudeau government has convinced Twitter to ban parody accounts of cabinet ministers, and are now demanding that Facebook “take action” against what they call “fake news.”
Yet, it turns out that Facebook’s top person in Canada is Kevin Chan. He’s in charge of a new program to fight “fake news,” and will have control over which news stories on Facebook can be seen by Canadians.
And just who is Kevin Chan? He’s a former Policy Director for the Liberal Party.
As if that’s not enough, he helped Bill Morneau promote the Liberal budget.
That’s the guy who’s going to decide what is “fake news” or not in the upcoming election.
But even that isn’t enough for the Authoritarians. The Trudeau Liberals aren’t done.
Trudeau spokesman Cameron Ahmad says “Social media companies should immediately take action to fight back against those who deceive and manipulate for political gain…. Right now it remains clear that more action must be taken.”
Clearly, they aren’t going to stop until all of us have been silenced, using the excuse of “fake news.”
They’ll do everything they can to stop websites like SpencerFernando.com from revealing the truth to Canadians. In fact, some people have already had trouble sharing articles on Facebook and noticed other ‘convenient’ problems accessing my website.
And that’s why we need to fight back.
A big part of fighting back is taking steps to bypass the social media networks. While we should keep sharing and tweeting, it’s also essential to share articles from SpencerFernando.com and other independent media through email.
