  • California Adds Another State To Its “No Travel” List

    Back in 2016, California passed a new law (Assembly Bill 1887) establishing a naughty list of states that don’t conform to their high moral standards. The bill created a travel ban, forbidding state-funded or endorsed travel to states that failed to provide “protections against discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.” They quickly began adding states to the list, including Texas, Oklahoma, Mississippi and Kentucky. (Clever readers are probably noticing a pattern already.)This week, California’s woke Attorney General, Xavier Becerra, broke out his sharpie and added another name to the list. This time it was Iowa,...

    Kroger, the United States’ largest supermarket chain, announced a corporate decision Tuesday about customers who choose to open carry in their stores – don’t do it unless you are a law enforcement officer. This announcement follows on the heels of Walmart’s decision to ask the same of its customers where the law allows guns to be openly carried.

    Miami Dolphins coach Brian Flores says he supports the NFL player protest movement and receiver Kenny Stills’ involvement, but wants him to play better. “Everything these guys protest, I’ve lived it, I’ve experienced it,” said an impassioned Flores, who is the son of immigrants from Honduras. “They’re bringing attention to my story. I’m a son of immigrants. I’m black. I grew up poor. I’ve been stopped because I fit the description.”

    On Friday night, HBO host Bill Maher talked about the Democrats' support for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement, commonly referred to as the BDS Movement. According to Maher, the Democrats have now created a "bulls**t purity test" when it comes to supporting a boycott against Israel. "BDS is a bulls**t purity test by people who want to appear woke and have actually slept through history class," Maher said, at which point the audience broke out into a thunderous applause. "It's predicated on this notion that is very shallow thinking, that the Jews are in Israel are mostly white and the...

    A Texas business has seen an increase in business since the owner was outed as a supporter of President Donald Trump by Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Texas). Castro, the chair of his brother Julian Castro’s presidential campaign, published a list of 44 San Antonio residents who have donated to Trump. He highlighted to his supporters that it included Balous Miller, the owner of Bill Miller BBQ. Since then, business has exploded at the BBQ chain. Pictures published on social media showed a long line of cars waiting to pick up food from some of the locations. “One of the companies he...

    At work (investment manager) and noticed a CNBC blurb that China is now NOT BUYING our Ag products. It's time to send a message. Time to go to parking lots and show our disdain for those thieves. Steve Ballmer, co-founder of Microsoft, made remarks a while back that "90% of Chinese companies use Microsoft products and only 1% pay for it". https://www.foxbusiness.com/business-leaders/china-is-ripping-off-microsoft-to-the-tune-of-10b That's THEFT. That's STEALING. And it's time to use that statement, because it gives cover. Make a poster with that quote. Make a bed sheet with that quote.

  • ILHAN OMAR SHOULD BE BANNED FROM ENTERING ISRAEL FOR SUPPORTING PRO-PALESTINIAN BOYCOTT, NGO SAYS

    An Israeli NGO is seeking to have Rep. Ilhan Omar barred from entering the country over her support of the pro-Palestinian Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, otherwise known as BDS. According to The Times of Israel, the Shurat HaDin organization has asked the Jerusalem District Court to order the country's Interior Minister Aryeh Deri to deny Omar entry to Israel ahead of her scheduled trip to the country this month. Shurat HaDin—a civil rights group that represents victims of terrorism and advocates for Jewish and Israeli causes—is pressuring the government to block Omar from entering the country, using a controversial...

    "Your stupid boycotts will never make a dent in a company like P&G," one liberal scoffed back in January. Turns out, they didn't just make a dent. After a string of male-bashing, transgender shaving ads, the parent company of Gillette got nicked so badly, market experts wonder if the brand will survive. Gillette's CEO insists the radical activism was "worth the price." Let's hope so -- because so far, that price is a whopping $8 billion dollars. To most customers, a razor company dabbling in gender politics never made sense in the first place. Gillette used to be "the best...

He said Sanders is “the best candidate to beat Trump and drive the transformational change that we need to create a country that works for working families”:

    The House of Representatives overwhelmingly approved a bipartisan resolution Tuesday opposing an international effort to boycott Israel as Democrats try to tamp down increasingly heated political rhetoric over differences with the longtime U.S. ally. The resolution passed on a vote of 398-17. Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., were among the 16 Democrats who voted against the resolution. Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., was the only Republican to vote "no." Rep. Justin Amash, I-Mich., was one of five lawmakers who voted "present." The resolution puts the House on record opposing the pro-Palestinian Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions...

    The Hill ^ | 07/23/19 | Cristina Marcos
    The House is slated to pass legislation Tuesday to oppose the global boycott movement against Israel, a vote that will put a spotlight both on Democratic divisions and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). Most Democrats in the House oppose the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement, an international campaign meant to exert pressure on Israel over treatment of the Palestinians. Critics say it would isolate and harm Israel, which retains strong support in Congress from both parties. But the BDS movement has support in Congress from some progressives, including Omar, who has offered her own resolution affirming the rights of Americans...

    The order of these two actions by Ilhan Omar tells us all we need to know about her motives. Omar announced yesterday that she will introduce a measure in the House endorsing the boycott movement against Israel, cheering it as a “non-violent” rebuke to Israel. That bill has already dropped, but it might run into a conflict on the agenda, US News & World Report noted yesterday: House Democrats today rallied around a resolution to condemn President Donald Trump’s racist tweets against four high-profile freshmen congresswomen.But at least one of those congresswomen — Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota —...

    Rep. Ilhan Omar called for advertisers to boycott Fox News host Tucker Carlson after he offered her as an example of why the U.S. immigration system is dangerous. "Fox News is now giving a nightly platform to white supremacist rhetoric. It’s dangerous. Advertisers should not be underwriting hate speech," the Minnesota Democrat said Wednesday on Twitter. Omar said in another tweet on Tuesday that Carlson was a "racist fool." "Not gonna lie, it’s kinda fun watching a racist fool like this weeping about my presence in Congress," the freshman congresswoman said. "No lies will stamp out my love for this...
