7-Eleven’s corporate headquarters have suggested all Los Angeles based franchisee stores should close. Hoping closures will only be temporary, the move comes after a string of the convenience stores were robbed and two people – one customer and one clerk – were killed.

The criminal activity consisted of five armed robberies which occurred Sunday night into Monday, during “National 7/11 Day.” In addition to the murders, three others were wounded. “Our hearts are with the victims and their loved ones. We are gathering information on this terrible tragedy and working with local law enforcement,” said 7-Eleven in a statement.

“Right now, our focus is on Franchisee, associate and customer safety. With that in mind, we encouraged stores in the Los Angeles area to close overnight.”

National Review reports “At least three of the robberies are believed to have been committed by the same suspect, including the two that included murders at 7-Elevens in Brea and Santa Ana. It is unclear whether the violence had anything to do with the chain’s National 7/11 Day promotion, which offered customers a free Slurpee beginning at midnight on Monday.”

Los Angeles, along with other progressive cities, have seen a huge uptick in criminal activity. Through June 18 of 2022, murders in L.A. were up 5.5 percent over the previous year, and up 35 percent over 2020.

Starbucks announced on Monday it would be closing 16 of its urban centers locations around the country where liberal leadership and policies have contributed to crime spikes. Among those cities are Los Angeles, Seattle, Portland, Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Starbucks cited safety concerns in each of those cities. “We read every incident report you file—it’s a lot,” wrote Starbucks executives Debbie Stroud and Denise Nelson in a message delivered to U.S. employees and obtained by the Journal. “We cannot serve as partners if we don’t first feel safe at work,” continued Stroud and Nelson.

American Girl publishes ‘guide’ for girls aged 3-12 on how to transition gender

Parents are furious over a popular doll brand is offering advice to girls as young as three on how to transition their gender. Though a published magazine, American Girl not only advocated for medicines available to “delay your body’s changes, giving you more time to think about your gender” but supported the notion of making such decisions without parental consent.

“If you don’t have an adult you trust, there are organizations across the country that can help you” the magazine, titled “A Smart Girl’s Guide: Body Image” writes. It offers readers to “turn to the Resources on page 95 for more information.”

The publication then details what discussions with a doctor could entail: “If you have’t gone through puberty yet, the doctor might offer medicine to delay your body’s changes, giving you more time to think about your gender identity.”

“If you’ve already gone through puberty, a doctor can still help” it continues. “Studies show that transgender and nonbinary kids who get help from doctors have much better mental health than those who don’t.”

Normalizing body dysmorphia, the book reads “Parts of your body might make you feel uncomfortable, and you might wan to change the way you look. That’s totally OK!”

The Daily Mail notes “earlier this year, its parent company Mattel, recently put a transgender Barbie doll on the market. Before that, American Girl, which sells more than 30 million dolls a year, shilled an Asian doll when anti-Asian hate crimes were skyrocketing across the US.”
