    You’re gonna love the new Starbucks! Starbucks recently enacted their “Third Place Policy” which means employees should consider anyone who enters the establishment a customer regardless whether they make a purchase. “We are committed to creating a culture of warmth and belonging where everyone is welcome,” Starbucks said. Because customers who pay north of $5.00 for a fancy latte want to have a side of syringes. Starbucks enacted this policy after they faced a huge backlash when two black men were arrested at a Philadelphia location. This new policy is not only upsetting Starbucks employees, but paying customers as well,...

    Gov. John Bel Edwards issued an executive order Tuesday night (May 22) prohibiting Louisiana state government from doing business with companies that boycott Israel. The order directs the state commissioner of administration, Jay Dardenne, to terminate existing state contracts with companies if they are currently boycotting Israel or supporting those who do so. Moving forward, companies will be required to sign an agreement certifying that they aren't boycotting Israel before being awarded a state contract. The prohibition will not be applied to companies that have contracts with the state that total less than $100,000 or that have fewer than five...

    Two European Parliament lawmakers from Ireland on Sunday expressed support for boycotting Israel following its winning the Eurovision song contest, JTA reported. Lynn Boylan of Ireland’s far-left Sinn Féin party wrote on Twitter following Saturday’s win, “Israel wins Eurovision so let’s make BDS more successful than ever in 2019.” Nessa Childers, another Irish lawmaker for the Party of European Socialists, retweeted Boylan’s message, adding the word: “This!” She later wrote: “Jerusalem? The mind boggles. I thought Tel Aviv.” Órla Nic Biorna, a regional lawmaker for Sinn Féin, an Irish nationalist movement that was affiliated with the now-defunct Provisional Irish Republican...

    Citing its opposition to "unilateral moves", the leftist Meretz faction will not attend next week's festive opening ceremony for the US Embassy in Jerusalem.

I want to see Jerusalem recognized by the world as the capital of Israel," Meretz Chairman Tamar Zandberg told the IDC Herzliya Conference on Thursday. "We simply can not celebrate unilateral moves whose potential for danger is so significant. " According to Zandberg, "Past experience shows...

    Activists protested at Waffle House’s Atlanta headquarters on Monday, demanding the restaurant chain drop charges against customer Chikesia Clemons, who was violently arrested at an Alabama location on April 22. Waffle House, however, doubled down on its defense of employees who called the police, and claimed Clemons was threatening the workers with violence. The activists, including those representing causes like March for Our Lives, the Georgia Alliance for Social Justice, and the NAACP, asked Waffle House to withdraw charges against Clemons, who was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The activists also asked Waffle...

    In the week before Easter, Laura Ingraham tweeted a putdown of Florida school shooting survivor and newly prominent anti-gun activist student David Hogg.  "David Hogg Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied and whines about it," Ingraham tweeted.  Employing the full force of his 15 minutes of fame, Hogg immediately called for his supporters, including his 700,000-plus Twitter followers, to boycott advertisers of Ingraham's nightly Fox News Channel show, The Ingraham Angle.  A #BoycottIngrahamAdverts hashtag quickly trended as many of the usual left-of-center suspects piled on.  The heat was on Ingraham and Fox News as at least fifteen of her advertisers quickly bailed.  Ingraham went on vacation during the week...

    A few weeks ago, the journalism watchdogs Democratic Party apparatchiks at Media Matters* organized a boycott against Laura Ingraham after she tweeted something snotty about Marjory Stoneman Douglas student David Hogg. She apologized for it, but Hogg didn't care and neither did his handlers at Media Matters. The grown-ups saw a perfect opportunity to take down one of their most hated enemies, and they had no problem using the kid as a human shield. That's who they are, and that's what they do.It's not working, and I'm having trouble remembering the last time it did work. Jon Levine, The...

    Gun control proponent David Hogg is pushing a boycott of mutual fund companies invested in firearm manufacturer stocks. This follows his boycott of Fox News’s Laura Ingraham, which resulted in her initially losing advertisers and apologizing to him only to have her viewership jump 20 percent. Now Hogg is targeting BlackRock, Vanguard Group, and a few other mutual fund companies for holding gun manufacturers’ stock in their mutual funds. Hogg tweeted:

    Sponsors who left Fox News star Laura Ingraham’s show at the behest of teen gun control activist David Hogg are missing out on a 20 percent increase in eyeballs. The conservative author of “Shut up and Sing” lost nearly 30 advertisers since a boycott against her show launched March 29, but those who held firm are benefiting from a ratings windfall. Data compiled by the media watchdog News Busters shows a jump from 2.23 million viewers prior to Mr. Hogg’s campaign to 2.7 million since her return from a vacation.

    Fox News host Laura Ingraham returned to her show Monday night following a week vacation in the middle of a mass exodus of the program's advertisers over controversial remarks she made about a Parkland shooting survivor. Ingraham focused on freedom of speech in her first show back, and attacked the left's alleged stifling of conservative voices. Ingraham was returning to her show after announcing on March 30 she would be out the following week for an Easter break to spend time with her children. The announcement came at the end of a week in which more than a dozen sponsors...

    Fox News host Laura Ingraham has apologized, as has the network, for nothing more serious than her tweet: “David Hogg rejected by four colleges to which he applied and whines about it. (Dinged by UCLA with a 4.1 GPA . totally predictable given acceptance rates.)” Hogg actually has a 4.2 grade-point average. The 17-year-old Hogg, a survivor of the Feb. 14 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., is the new face of the anti-gun movement, having achieved overnight victim status, reserved, apparently, only for those on the left, which supposedly insulates him from criticism. Hogg...

    School shooting survivor and gun control activist David Hogg doubled down on his refusal to accept an apology from Fox News host Laura Ingraham in an interview with CNN on Saturday, as advertisers of her show announced they were ending their relationships with her after she mocked the teenager on Twitter for not getting into his top colleges. The senior student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas described Ingraham’s apology as disgusting, saying “she basically tried promoting her show after apologizing to me.”

    The ratings for Sunday night’s telecast of the 90th annual Academy Awards collapsed by a whopping 16 percent, which would mean an all-time low, according to early estimates. Variety reports that the “8 p.m.-11 p.m. portion of ABC’s telecast averaged an 18.9 household rating and 32 share in Nielsen’s metered market overnight ratings … That’s down about 16% from the 22.5/37 rating generated by the 2017 Oscars.” According to Deadline, the “18.9 appears to be an all-time low for the Oscars, below the previous low ratings point for the Oscars, logged with the 2008 telecast (21.9).” The ratings will be...

I shouted it and I proclaimed it out there, and now it’s happening. “Companies Cutting Ties With NRA See Their Public Opinion Plunge.” I predicted this yesterday. These companies overreact to the Drive-By Media and these fake boycott campaigns ginned up by the left that are largely driven by bots and not real people, and they fall for it because they...
