    Obama admin. engaged in "diplomatic malpractice," specifically at the Human Rights Council, more generally at the United Nations as a whole, by indulging their hatefests. Hopefully, President Trump will succeed in reversing this destructive course The Trump administration decided to boycott the United Nations Human Rights Council’s special session bashing Israel this week. The Council is devoting time, during its regular annual month-long meeting in March, to take up ‘Agenda Item 7’ dealing with the “human rights situation in Palestine and other occupied Arab territories.” Israel is the only country in the world that is targeted under such a special...

    The good news for North Carolina is starting to sound like a broken record, but based on the latest business reports, HB 2 might have been the best thing that happened to the state! Tourism is thriving and the economy is expanding — which is exactly the opposite of what liberals predicted. In a great Washington Times piece today, Bradford Richardson and Valerie Richardson are quick to point out that whatever “boycott” the Left had unleashed on the Tar Heels wasn’t nearly as powerful as they thought it would be. Financial indicators released for 2016, they write, “show that the...

    Complete Headline: Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz to STEP DOWN after his anti-Trump vow to hire 10,000 refugees backfired, provoked a boycott by Donald supporters and hit sales. Howard Schultz, the current CEO of Starbucks, is weeks away from stepping down from his role at the giant coffee chain next month. The move, which was announced in December of last year, comes after his vow to hire thousands refugees in response to President Donald Trump's first travel ban appeared to hurt customer sentiment and dent their sales. Trump supporters have called for a boycott of the chain since January 29, when...

    MARCH 11, 2017 —After several major department stores, including Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus, dropped Ivanka Trump’s products, citing poor performance, the company's revenue boomed in February, mostly from online sales. Though the first daughter divested herself from her eponymous brand in January, a wave of high profile news surrounding the label – including calls for boycotts – combined with full-throated support of the brand from the White House made the sales of Ivanka-brand items more political than ever. Abigail Klem, who took over as president of the fashion label after the election, confirmed the company’s rapid growth online since last...

OutVets, which marched in Boston’s 2015 St. Patrick’s Day parade after decades of resistance from organizers, said on its Facebook page that the reason for the denial to this year’s parade is unclear, but “one can only assume it’s because we are LGBTQ.”

The next day, a drive-in theater in Alabama announced that it would not show the movie, while, even before Franklin Graham’s comment was posted, the conservative group One Million Moms called for a Disney boycott, with a clear warning: “Alerting all parents!

    NEW YORK — Five years ago, Carolyn Handley walked down the aisle wearing Ivanka Trump shoes in the Trump International Hotel in Chicago. At that point, and until last year, Handley would have called herself a fan of the Trump brands. “I thought the hotels were great. I thought her clothing line was well designed and well thought out,” said Handley, a Republican who voted for Hillary Clinton for president. At one point she counted almost two dozen Ivanka Trump items in her closet, including about 10 pairs of shoes and three purses. In the fall, she got rid of...

    Target reported sales and earnings that missed Wall Street's expectations on Tuesday, in what was a disappointing holiday quarter for the big-box retailer. At the same time, the retailer issued an outlook for fiscal year 2017 that fell well short of analysts' expectations. Here's how the company did: —EPS: $1.45 per share, excluding items, versus $1.51 per share expected by Thomson Reuters analysts' consensus. —Revenue: $20.69 billion versus $20.7 billion expected by Thomson Reuters. —Same-store sales: A decline of 1.5 percent versus the 1.4 percent decline expected by FactSet. A year earlier, Target earned $1.52 a share on $21.6 billion...

    Starbucks' brand has taken a beating since the company announced plans to hire 10,000 refugees worldwide in the next five years in response to Donald Trump's executive order intended to prevent refugees from entering the US. The coffee giant's consumer perception levels have fallen by two-thirds since late January, according to YouGov BrandIndex. The perception tracker measures if respondents have "heard anything about the brand in the last two weeks, through advertising, news or word of mouth, was it positive or negative." In Starbucks' case, perception is still overall positive, but significantly lower than it was prior to CEO Howard...

    There's no such thing as bad publicity, as Ivanka Trump is discovering. The president's daughter was caught up in a row this month when Nordstrom said it would stop selling the her brand of products. Although the upmarket department store said the decision was simply down to poor sales, Donald Trump accused the company of treating his daughter "so unfairly". His senior adviser, Kellyanne Conway, was then "counselled" by the White House after urging the president’s supporters to buy Ivanka's line of products, which includes clothing, jewellery, handbags and other goods. The encouragement may have paid off as her perfume...

    Earlier this week, Wegmans became the latest company to face a backlash for carrying Trump-owned products. The supermarket chain sells five different Trump Winery wines at its ten stores in Virginia, where the vineyard is located, and a local chapter of the National Organization for Women called on its notoriously loyal fanbase to boycott Wegmans unless it agreed to remove the products from stores statewide. The company responded that it bases inventory “solely on how well [a product] sells,” and welcomed shoppers to “demonstrate their convictions.” Seeing that as an encouraging sign, a group called Stop Trump Wine materialized with...

It's clear that no one wants to risk offending "Black Lives Matter." We can all clearly see that companies and retailers bend over backwards not to offend Democrats, liberals, women, blacks, Latinos, Muslims, gays, even transsexuals. Offend any of those groups and you are met with a national boycott. Or like Ivanka Trump, your clothing line is cancelled, kicked out of stores. You can lose your career, business or livelihood in a nanosecond. But...

In response to the move, President Donald Trump tweeted about the situation. “My daughter Ivanka has been treated so unfairly by @Nordstrom. She is a great person -- always pushing me to do the right thing! Terrible!” While it’s certainly highly inappropriate for President Trump to go after a private company on issues of family business now that he’s in the Oval Office, he isn't...

The company, which sells coffee blends, monthly coffee club subscriptions, and java-centric apparel and gear, posted that it would hire 10,000 veterans, just as the pro-Trump movement to boycott Starbucks gained steam.

    The revolution will not be brought to you by Xerox. It will be brought to you by BMW. The German luxury automaker is a key advertiser at GQ. And GQ is the headquarters of the Resistance. That's a vlog by Keith Olbermann who returned from his exile at an ESPN Elba to denounce Trump. "I am Keith Olbermann," Keith Olbermann barks to the peasants and workers of GQ who are taking a break from reading an article on '$100 Cologne that Smells Like Nothing', "This is the Resistance."
