10-Year-Old Strives to Thank Every Cop in America with Donuts

For the past two years, 10-year-old Tyler Carach has been committed to thanking every police officer in America by treating them to donuts.

A couple of years ago, Tyler and his mother, Sheena Carach, were at their local store in Bratt, Florida. Tyler saw four deputies and offered to buy them some donuts with his allowance money. Confused as to why the officers were so excited over this gesture, his mother explained to him

“A lot of people choose to judge a whole by a few and because of that some people are not very kind to officers”

Tyler made it his mission to “thank every cop in American and buy them a donut.”

Making an Impact, State by State

What started as a simple gesture has since turned into an ongoing mission. His program is called “I DONUT need a reason to THANK a cop.” It has spanned all across the nation. As of now, Tyler has been to 34 states within the past 22 months. He has delivered roughly 65,000 donuts to officers all over America.

The money for the donuts, while originally funded by Tyler, is now donated from strangers through his website and GoFundMe page. Sometimes, donut companies such as Krispy Kreme and Dunkin Donuts will support Tyler’s cause by supplying the donuts themselves, free of charge.

When people ask why she supports her son’s commitment to giving back, Sheena Carach replies “why not?”

She encourages her son’s endeavor one hundred percent. In an interview with Sheena, she told StandUnited

“When you’re committed to something, you have the ability to achieve anything you put your mind to. You should always follow your dreams and passions.”

Tyler and his family will be flying out to Washington state next month to continue showing his appreciation towards police officers.

NFL Makes Anthem Rule

Tired of politics ruining sports? You’re not alone. Over 20,000 people signed this petition asking the NFL to issue a rule about the national anthem. After many months, the NFL responded. Players are now required to either stand on the field or remain in the locker room while the anthem is played.

U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem

President Trump made good on his promise to formally move the U.S. Embassy in Israel to her capital, Jerusalem. For decades, the U.S. maintained an embassy in Tel Aviv so as not to anger the Palestinians. Finally, American supporters of Israel told Washington that they’d had enough: We want the embassy to move. We want to support our allies. Ivanka Trump and Vice President Pence attended the ribbon cutting ceremony at the new embassy.

Rescue Dog Show

Last year, we petitioned the American Kennel Association to add a rescue category to their annual dog show. While this didn’t happen exactly, in February, the Hallmark Channel launched their First Annual American Rescue Dog Show. The best part? All dog contenders were available for adoption, and many of them found homes after the show!

CHIP Funded

Thanks in part to a big petition effort, the Children’s Health Insurance Program is fully funded! This program has bipartisan support, because someone who stays healthy in childhood is less likely to cost taxpayers later on. 13,812 people signed on to keep CHIP running and help American kids!

Al Franken Resigns

Disgraced Senator Al Franken resigned over instances of sexual misconduct. The Democrat faced calls from supporters asking him to stay in office. However, StandUnited users led the charge to hold Democrats accountable, too.

David Hogg’s Boycotts

When anti-gun activist David Hogg called for mass boycotts of Laura Ingraham’s advertisers, our petitioners wouldn’t give in to bullying. 18,524 people signed on to support Ingraham. Her show is still on the air, still runs advertisements, and now enjoys even stronger ratings.

Right to Try

President Trump signed landmark legislation that will allow terminally ill patients the right to try experimental treatments. This is a huge victory for patients’ rights and for future medical knowledge!

Aaron Persky Recalled

Judge Aaron Persky stunned the nation when he gave Brock Turner, a convicted rapist, only 6 months in jail. Persky said he didn’t want the violent crime to have “a severe impact” on Turner. By denying justice, Persky eventually lost his job: StandUnited users petitioned for his recall, and he lost his reelection.

Last Man Standing Revived

Our audience wants funny, relatable shows on television! Last Man Standing will come back to network television following a successful petition campaign on StandUnited. ABC cancelled the show last year amid rumors that they disliked Tim Allen’s conservative politics. Now, thanks to a grassroots effort, the show will return for another season on FOX.

Academy Ousts Abusers

Following a successful petition campaign, the Motion Picture Academy removed Harvey Weinstein, Bill Cosby, and Roman Polanski. Those predators no longer have the honor of membership in the Academy.

Punk Rock Band Makes Cracks About Victims of Vegas Shooting

Over Memorial Day weekend, the punk rock band NOFX made distasteful comments about the Las Vegas shooting while performing at the Punk Rock Bowling Music Festival in downtown Las Vegas.
The frontman of the band, Michael John Burkett, also known as “Fat Mike,” told the crowd:

“We played a song and didn’t get shot. There’s no getting shot in Vegas unless you’re in a country band. That sucks, but at least it was country fans and not punk rock fans.”

NOFX Has Controversial History

Las Vegas is still grieving from the shooting that resulted in 58 people murdered and over 800 injured, which happened back in October 2017. The massacre, which is now the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history, occurred during the Route 91 Country Music Festival.

However, this did not stop NOFX from making outrageous comments about the shooting. In fact, this isn’t the first time that the band has done offensive things on stage.

At the same music festival last year, NOFX decapitated a naked statue of President Trump and proceeded to beat it with a baseball bat. Before decapitating the statue, “Fat Mike” yelled out,

“If you’re a Trump supporter, f*** you, and get the f*** out of our scene.”

Since then, NOFX has received a lot of backlash for their performance. The Punk Rock Bowling and Music Festival released a statement, apologizing to the audience, the City of Las Vegas, and the victims and the families of the shooting for NOFX’s remarks.

NOFX has not yet released a statement addressing this issue.

First Daughter Ivanka Defends New Mom Serena Williams

Tennis player Serena Williams has been unseeded for the upcoming French Open tournament after returning to the WTA after her maternity leave.

Before giving birth in September, Williams was ranked #1. Now she is ranked #453 going into the tournament and risks losing in an early round.

As a result, first daughter Ivanka Trump tweeted in support of Williams, calling the WTA’s rules “ridiculous.”

This is ridiculous. @SerenaWilliams is a formidable athlete (best ever!) and loving new mother. No person should ever be penalized professionally for having a child! The #WTA should change this rule immediately. #FrenchOpen.

Maria Sharapova and Simona Halep, some of Serena’s biggest rivals, also came out against the WTA’s ruling.

Consitently Fighting for Paid Family Leave

This has not been the first time Ivanka has called for fair maternity leave for mothers.

Last year, she pushed her father to make “paid family leave” a priority for the Administration, including paternity leave for new fathers.

Back in February, Senator Marco Rubio and Ivanka began planning on how to get paid family leave in the Republican platform.

Man Fights Off Armed Robber Over Louis Vuitton Bag

What would you do to protect what you’ve earned? Jerad Kluting of Holland, Michigan, fought off an armed robber to save his Louis Vuitton bag. On May 14, Kluting took his usual route home but was confronted by an unusual threat: A masked man with a gun.

Near-Death Experience

The robber recognized the bag’s luxury brand and demanded that Kluting hand it over. Instead of complying, Kluting stood his ground. According to a television interview, he said “‘You’re not getting my Louis Vuitton.’ I worked very hard for this and this bag I’ve had forever and it means a lot to me. I wasn’t about ready to relinquish it to some thug that was going to demand it from me.” Kluting purchased the designer bag for around $1,700.

The robber fired a warning shot. When his victim still refused to hand over the bag, he fired another. Kluting turned and sprinted up the sidewalk to get away. The robber shot a third time, and then a fourth – when the fourth bullet jammed his gun. Kluting was able to run to his uncle’s house, where he found safe haven.

Fight or Flight

Though this man and his prized accessory made it out unscathed, he says he would not make the same choice again. Kluting told reporters, “Yes, I do love Louis Vuitton, but I wasn’t going to be intimidated by this bully.”

Police say the robber used stolen firearm to threaten and shoot at Kluting.

Jimmy Kimmel Admits It Might Be Time to Scale Back Trump-Bashing

Late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel, an outspoken critic of President Trump over the years, said that it might be time to scale back his anti-Trump humor.

Kimmel was recently questioned about an upcoming routine for ABC, where he revealed,

“Well, I can’t imagine that it will be entirely Trump free, but I’m not planning on that to be my focus. Already I’m seeing a lot of other things to point out, to make fun of.”

Americans Tune out Late Night Talk Shows

President Trump and his family have been the direct target in many of Kimmel’s monologues.

Conservatives lambasted the host and stated he crossed the line by mocking First Lady Melania Trump’s Slovenian accent. Kimmel also insinuated that President Trump was “mentally ill.”

Kimmel admits that some of his political rhetoric may have diminished his conservative viewership. He responded with

“I don’t think you can go too far. I’m still doing a comedy show and I need to be funny and entertain my audience, but I also think that we’ve matured enough … to the point where we can accept late-night talk show hosts speaking about a serious subject. And I think that it’s almost necessary now.”

The late-night talk show scene has evolved — or maybe devolved, depending on how you look at it. Hosts used to keep their political views private to provide entertainment for everyone. More recently, hosts have been doing blatantly political routines to cater to their fanbase. Thus, turning off half of the country that used to tune in.

Victory! “Last Man Standing” Gets a TV Reboot!

Fox has just announced that the network will reboot Last Man Standing, the sitcom at the center of a viral effort to get it back on the air. Last Man Standing will follow Roseanne and Will & Grace in a series of high-profile reboots of beloved shows.

Last Man Standing stars Tim Allen as the patriarch of the Baxter family. The Baxters navigate life in suburban Colorado with a wholesome, funny twist.

Following Roseanne‘s success, networks began taking Last Man Standing seriously. Major television networks saw the demand for approachable and funny conservative characters.

Last Man Standing Stands Again

By reviving this show, Fox is giving its characters the chance to continue their story. The show’s storyline stopped abruptly in May of last year, when ABC cancelled the show. ABC maintains that the cancellation had nothing to do with politics, but fans thought otherwise.

Tim Allen not only plays a conservative character, but he personally has spoken out against liberalism, too. He vehemently opposes political correctness. Though Hollywood might not agree with Allen, plenty of Americans think the same way. That relatability helped make the show successful.

A StandUnited Victory

Fans of Last Man Standing are celebrating – and _____ StandUnited petitioners are, too! That’s how many people signed the petition on StandUnited to revive the show. If you would like to take a stand and make an impact, you can start your petition in just minutes! If you signed, thank you for contributing to this exciting victory! We’re glad you’re with us.

Tim Allen Asks Fans to Support Last Man Standing Reboot

Tim Allen is rallying fans to bring back his sitcom, Last Man Standing. The comedian has dropped hints that another network might revive the former ABC show, which was canceled in May 2017 despite strong ratings.

Allen tweeted, “They heard all your voices people!! LMS just might be a reality. Keep it up. Who wants more ?” This news follows reports that Fox is considering producing a reboot of the series.

The show centers around a relatable suburban family, whose father – played by Allen – leans politically conservative. The show wrote conservative characters who were realistic and approachable. ABC cancelled the show in May of last year, though the network maintains that politics had nothing to do with the cancellation.

Fans Step Up

When ABC rebooted Roseanne, the network created an unexpected hit. Roseanne vocally supports President Trump, both personally and on the show. Still, that did not stop the show from becoming a hit – a good show is a good show, politics aside. Many conservatives and libertarians feel ignored or mistreated by the media, which tends to lean left and portray right-of-center Americans in an unflattering light. Following the success of Roseanne, fans say Last Man Standing should be the next rebooted sitcom.

Tim Allen says he feels frustrated by the current state of politics in America. He told PJ Media, “I don’t like anybody telling me what to do and, lately, the left wants to tell everybody – it’s the ‘we all know this, you should, you should.’ Stop telling me what to do, you go do it. You want to support stuff that the government should stay out of? You go do it. No one is stopping you from paying more taxes.”

This common-sense understanding of freedom gets ignored by the politically correct crowd, which insists on total compliance. Tim Allen, like most sitcom dads, just wants to live his life without outside interference. Prospects for a reboot look promising, but the show’s fate is far from certain.

Sign the petition and share it with your friends to get Last Man Standing back on television!

Backlash Continues in White House Correspondents’ Dinner Fiasco

Pundits from both sides of the aisle condemned comedienne Michelle Wolf’s remarks during her monologue at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner last weekend. Even the host association for the dinner admitted Wolf’s comments were “not in the spirit of the mission.”

Wolf’s speech included insults directed at a wide variety of people. She took potshots at the president but saved her most pointed barbs for White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

“I think she’s very resourceful like she burns facts and then she uses that ash to create a perfect smokey eye,” Wolf cackled to a largely silent and somewhat shocked audience. “Maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s lies.”

Even some at CNN were uncomfortable. Chris Cillizza, who is no fan of President Trump’s, called the speech bullying. Cillizza was “stunned” that Sanders, who sat very close to Wolf, did not react to the verbal insults.

“Being funny is one thing,” wrote Cillizza. “Bullying people because you can is another. And Wolf’s treatment of Sanders was bullying.”

President Trump Fights Back

Trump, however, wasn’t nearly as quiet as Sanders. In a tweet on Sunday night, the president lashed out, calling the dinner “an embarrassment to everyone associated with it.” He also referred to Wolf as “the filthy ‘comedian’” who “totally bombed.”

This is the second year in a row that Trump refused to attend the dinner; instead, the president spoke to a crowd of supporters in Michigan at a campaign-style rally, where he slammed the media and called the dinner “phony.”

“These people, they hate your guts,” Trump said of the media. “And you know, you got to smile. And if you don’t smile, they say, ‘He was terrible. He couldn’t take it.’ And if you do smile, they’ll say, ‘What was he smiling about?’ You know, there’s no win.”

Attendees for the Michigan event stood in line for hours to make sure they got a seat to hear the President speak.
