    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...

    RUSH: I told you yesterday it was gonna happen. I told you, I made a big deal about it too. I didn’t say it quietly. I didn’t whisper it. I didn’t say it so that it wouldn’t be noticed. 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...

    ....there are consequences for businesses that decide to cut ties with the NRA, a new Morning Consult poll has found. Rental car companies like Enterprise, Alamo, and National all saw their unfavorability ratings more than double when people were told about the companies' decision to end NRA discounts after the Parkland, Florida, high school shooting. Likewise, insurance company MetLife Inc. had a 45 percent favorable rating and a 12 percent unfavorable rating before survey participants learned it ended its discount for NRA members. Afterwards, the unfavorable rating doubled to 24 percent...

    Following the horrific Florida school shooting that claimed the lives of 17 students, anti-gun advocates have been on an all out social media crusade to intimate companies into abandoning their support and partnership for the National Rifle Association. The NRA has partnerships with many companies that offer discounts, reduced rates and special plans for NRA members. Currently, liberal organizers on social media are on a campaign urging their obedient followers to post heated messages to these NRA partners urging them to cut ties with the NRA or lose their business. Each company below as succumbed to the pressure of Twitter/Facebook...

  • Boycotts Against NRA Have Backfire Effect, Galvanize Conservatives

    02/26/2018 8:27:06 AM PST · by rktman · 67 replies ^ | 2/25/2018 | Peter Hasson
    The liberal campaign against the NRA has successfully pressured some companies to sever their partnerships with the gun rights group but it’s having another, unintended effect: galvanizing conservatives who feel the NRA has been unfairly attacked. Liberal activist groups turned the NRA into a scapegoat for the Florida school shooting that left 17 people dead and immediately launched a pressure campaign meant to weaken the NRA, which touts itself as the nation’s longest-standing civil rights organization. Liberals have threatened boycott campaigns against companies like FedEx, for having discount partnerships with NRA members. On that front, the activists have had some...

    I have subscribed to NFL Sunday Ticket since 1995 and have cancelled my renewal for 2018. I haven't actually used it like I used to for the past few years. God put on my heart that football was an idol in my life. Being in Alaska the games come early and in the past I would skip morning services to watch games, and go to evening services only. I haven't done that for 5 years, I dvr the game(s) of interest and watch them at my leisure. Stopped watching all together mid-season of 2017 and just didn't miss it. It...

    Corporate America is taking on the country’s most powerful gun lobby group. In the wake of the mass shooting in a Florida high school last week, companies are dropping their partnerships with the National Rifle Association (NRA), which touts 5 million members. According to a list compiled by ThinkProgress, an advocacy organization, there are at least 22 corporations, including car-rental companies and financial institutions that have been offering discounts to NRA members. As the #BoycottNRA movement picks up steam, some companies have cut ties.

    I suppose this was inevitable because it’s 2018 and everything has to be terrible. It looks as if the Philadelphia Eagles playbook has been expanded to include more than screen passes and flea flickers.Step 1: Win Super Bowl for first time in franchise history. Step 2: Watch as fans set fire to city, loot department stores and tear down street lights. Step 3: Turn victory into political statement so some players can be part of the #RESIST movement.Time Magazine reports that a number of players didn’t waste any time on celebrating or planning for the next season before they...

Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins— a prominent voice the past two seasons in NFL player protests of police brutality and social injustice— told CNN Monday that he will not attend the White House if President Donald Trump was to extend the invitation.

    So what did you do? If you had a moment of weakness and watched the game, you can also confess here. My family? We ordered Out Back takeout and relaxed at home. Since we have never watched “Ash Versus Evil Dead” we started binge watching Season 1. It’s a hoot and the actor (Bruce Campbell) who plays the lead character bears an uncanny resemblance to Mitt Romney.
