    Washington Examiner ^ | 7/3/20 | Timothy P. Carney
    Would you be surprised if multinational corporations and wealthy, powerful, mostly white commentators in New York and D.C. got their way over the will of Native Americans on an issue that is mostly about Native Americans? I wouldn’t be. In other words, I won’t be surprised if our wokeness-obsessed corporate titans combine with our ever-leftward-lurching media to strip the Washington Redskins of their name — despite the fact that the overwhelming majority of Native Americans are not offended by it. FedEx, the named sponsor of the stadium where the Redskins play, demanded that the team change its name. Nike won’t...

    Amid growing pressure from Native American groups, sponsors, and even the city's mayor, the Washington Redskins have announced they will conduct a 'thorough review' of the team's name, which is considered by many to be offensive. 'In light of recent events around our country and feedback from our community, the Washington Redskins are announcing the team will undergo a thorough review of the team's name,' read the statement. 'This review formalizes the initial discussions the team has been having with the league in recent weeks.' Friday's statement came after the team received a formal name-change request from FedEx, which was...

    FedEx has asked the Washington Redskins to officially change its name, long condemned as an anti-Indigenous slur. The shipping company has communicated to the NFL team a request that it change its name, FedEx confirmed in a statement to NBC News on Thursday. FedEx owns the naming rights to the Maryland field where the NFL team plays and its chief executive, Fred Smith, owns a minority stake in the team.

On Friday night far left protesters in downtown St. Louis shut down Highway 70 heading into St. Louis City and then rushed on the highway to frighten drivers. One semi truck driver attempted an escape from the violent mob and ended up dragging a protester who was caught between his two trailers. The FedEx driver could not see him.

    Rick Guerino was on his lunch break at work when he received an alert from his Ring doorbell camera showing a FedEx driver at his home. But he wasn't expecting a package. Instead, the driver was captured on video picking up an American flag that had fallen to the ground as the result of windy weather. The driver then folds the flag and places it inside Guerino's front screen door to secure it. "I didn't know what he was doing at first when he was waving it out and everything," Guerino told News 12 New Jersey. "I was like, 'What...

    FedEx is warning its customers about a new text-based scam that has been using the company’s name to obtain personal information from phone users. In the past week, a number of people have taken to Twitter with screenshots of messages sent to their phones disguised as package notifications from FedEx. The messages, which sometimes address users by their names, ask them to set their delivery preferences and include a tracking code. The texts also feature a link to a site that takes the user to a fake Amazon site and asks them to complete a survey, according to photos obtained...

    There's only so many boxes that can be delivered in a day. Warehouse space is nearly full, with vacancy near an all-time low. Streets are crammed with delivery vans blocking traffic. City curbs are increasingly a turf war between delivery drivers and everyone else. Even grocery store aisles can feel crowded — at least, when staff for delivery services are scouring the shelves. Americans are demanding more deliveries, and as a result, many of the things needed for delivery are becoming scarce. And with many companies pushing to meet that demand, industry experts say the U.S. faces a problem —...

    Today certainly is not the easiest time to run a business. Globalization now requires executives to be experts on geopolitical issues. And thanks to rising cultural sensitivity in our own country, the slightest misstep can trigger a national boycott, which can now be organized at almost no cost through social media. It’s understandable that business leaders who simply want to build and sell their products would be fine burying their heads in the sand. In the short term, it’s easy to surrender to the mobs that come after you, or to placate despots in exchange for access to international customers.America’s...

    Get ready for the debate of the century — and we’re not talking about the Democratic primaries. That is, get ready if New York Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger has the cojones to face off against a very angry FedEx CEO Fred Smith. The NYT ran an analysis of FedEx’s taxes and accused the company of lobbying for the big tax reform of 2017 on the basis of increasing investment in the US economy — and then reneging on the promise: In the 2017 fiscal year, FedEx owed more than $1.5 billion in taxes. The next year, it owed nothing....

    The New York Times accused FedEx on Sunday of essentially having lobbied President Donald Trump to sign tax cuts into law with the promise of businesses using the saved money to reinvest in and further grow their companies, and then failing to invest the billions of dollars that it reportedly saved as a result of the tax cuts. “In the 2017 fiscal year, FedEx owed more than $1.5 billion in taxes. The next year, it owed nothing. What changed was the Trump administration’s tax cut – for which the company had lobbied hard,” The New York Times reported on Sunday......

    FedEx CEO Frederick Smith has challenged the publisher of The New York Times as well as the paper's business editor to a public debate after the Times reported that the company paid $0 in federal taxes in 2018. In a statement Sunday, Smith argued that the Times's report, published earlier in the day, was "distorted and factually incorrect" and ignored the "$6 billion of capital" that FedEx supposedly "invested in the U.S. economy" in 2018. "I hereby challenge A.G. Sulzberger, publisher of the New York Times and the business section editor to a public debate in Washington, DC with me...
