  • The High-Pressure Business of Selling Woke Corporate Armor

    In 2017, Nandini Jammi helped launch a company called Sleeping Giants to pressure corporate advertisers into boycotting conservative media. With little more than a Twitter account, a Facebook group and a gift for incendiary rhetoric, the company reportedly prompted a range of corporations, from Pfizer to Walmart, to pull advertising from Fox News and other right-leaning outlets. Now, with boycotts becoming a fixed tactic, including secondary boycotts targeting states with new Republican-backed voting laws, Jammi has transitioned from aggressor to protector: advising companies on how to avoid becoming targets. Her new enterprise, “Check My Ads,” says it provides “brand safety...
  • Coca-Cola pauses aggressive diversity plan after chief lawyer resigns

    Coca-Cola has paused its controversial diversity plan — that included penalties on outside law firms if they failed to meet racial diversity quotas — after intense backlash. The pause comes after the orchestrator of the plan, Coke’s former general counsel Bradley Gayton, abruptly resigned last month after less than a year on the job and as criticism of the quotas mounted. Some questioned whether Gayton’s policies violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which says employers can’t treat people differently based on their race. Coca-Cola hired Gayton in September 2020 after spending nearly 30 years as the...

    The NCAA Board of Governors issued a statement on Monday confirming explicitly that which it has only evidenced in the past by its decision-making — the NCAA will not schedule championship events in states that pass legislation ensuring that female athletes will be provided the opportunity to compete against other female athletes — not including “transgender” female athletes.When determining where championships are held, NCAA policy directs that only locations where hosts can commit to providing an environment that is safe, healthy and free of discrimination should be selected. We will continue to closely monitor these situations to determine whether NCAA...

    A week into the fiasco over Georgia's election law, most Americans want to know: just who are these woke CEOs listening to? Not to their shareholders, who can't make a profit when their companies alienate half of the country. Not to lawyers or legislators, who could set them straight on what the policy actually does. And certainly not to U.S. consumers, who are sending a resounding message that they're done with businesses who can't check their radicalism at the door long enough to read a 98-page piece of legislation. "It's insanity," Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-Ga.) agreed on "Washington Watch." Like...

    After initially supporting corporate boycotts against Georgia, activist and failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams seems to have done an about-face. After the state’s Republican leadership enacted voting laws, several corporations including Major League Baseball and Delta Airlines have responded by engaging in the usual empty virtue-signaling to pander to Democrats who are pretending the legislation is a return to Jim Crow.Last week, the voting rights activist argued against boycotts in a released statement.“I respect boycotts,” she said, “although I don’t want to see Georgia families hurt by lost events and jobs. Georgians targeted by voter suppression will be hurt as...

    Democrats certainly have an interest in weaker election laws, but is that what their frenzy in Georgia is really about? Or is there another agenda at work -- a more sinister, dangerous motive for the Left? According to Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), this isn't about the Peach State at all. It's about every state. "This disinformation has a purpose," he warned. And the only way to stop it is for every American to understand exactly what it is. "These people literally have been lying about what's in [our] legislation to drive an agenda," Governor Brian Kemp (R-Ga.) insisted on...

    American Thinker ^ | 04/05/2021 | Thomas Lifson
    I am deeply offended that big corporations are trying to bully Georgia into repealing a perfectly reasonable voting integrity law. President Biden lied about the law so egregiously that even the Bezos propaganda outlet, The Washington Post, awarded him 4 Pinocchios. But that didn’t stop some of America’s most prominent corporations from trying to bully Georgia into repealing the law, one which protects legitimate votes from being cancelled out by fraudulent votes.Now, former President Trump is calling for boycotts of the corporations that are acting as political overlords:"For years the Radical Left Democrats have played dirty by boycotting products when...
  • Gun Control Group Can Help You Find Pro-Gun Bank

    Right now, one of the biggest threats to our Second Amendment rights doesn’t come from Congress, but from the financial industry. Banks are cutting ties with gun stores and manufacturers unless they comply with certain insane rules that have no basis in reality but lets the CEO of the bank get invited to certain parties. To make matters worse, pretty much everyone needs banking of some type. It’s how the world operates these days. So how, as gun rights supporters, can we navigate the waters of the activist financial industry? Luckily one group is helping with that, though I don’t...
  • 5 Ways Conservatives Should Fight the Culture War in 2021

    Well, 2020 has been awful. Between the riots, the Chinese Flu, and brazen voter fraud, this year has been just terrible. In times like these, it can be easy to be despondent and give up; these are the times that try men’s souls, as Thomas Paine once said. When the whole world seems arrayed against you specifically, as this year often has, it can be difficult to hold your head high and keep fighting. But that’s what the other side wants. They want you to give up and stop fighting. They want you to be dismayed by the voter fraud,...

    Has your Facebook feed been packed with protest talk the last few months? Who is the latest boycott target from the left or right? You'll hear one group discuss boycotting a business due to nonsupport of the current protest movement, and the other side wanting to boycott the same business for supporting the same protests. Neither side appears to have a firm grasp of which businesses they are supporting, defending, ranting against, or avoiding - minus the extremely high-profile brands. If a major business is not listed below, it is likely they have not publicly taken a stand one way...

    Actress Patricia Arquette is urging people to participate in a one-day economic shutdown that is designed to inflict damage on the U.S. economy and hurt President Donald Trump. Arquette isn’t the first Hollywood celebrity to advocate for damaging the U.S. economy in order to hurt President Trump, even if it means ordinary Americans will have to bear the brunt of a slowdown. Comedian Bill Maher has repeatedly said on his HBO show that he hopes the U.S. goes into a recession if it means that the Trump administration will suffer.

    As the U.S. works to recover from the financial fallout of the coronavirus pandemic, President Trump is preparing a “stronger” playbook than his 2017 policy platform to return the U.S. economy to its former strength, he says, which could include a payroll tax cut. During an interview with FOX Business’ Maria Bartiromo on Thursday, Trump said he liked the idea of a payroll tax cut because it provides a benefit to both businesses and workers. “That’s one of the taxes that I want to see cut,” Trump said. “And by the way, we’ve already given – we’ve given the largest...

    President Trump wasn’t called a racist until he ran against Hillary. That’s how liberals operate. Play the race card every time. They’ve done it for decades. Fortunately, minorities aren’t falling for it as much as they used to. The black people no longer think they are victims – but free men – to do and achieve as they can. Just like all should be able to do. In November, two polls found that President Trump’s approval rating among black likely voters had reached 34%. An Emerson poll found that Trump has a 34.5% approval rating among black likely voters and...

    Tariffs were once a mainstay in U.S. trade policy. Constituting the main source of federal revenue from 1790-1914, and at one point providing over 90% of government income, they were a pivotal component of U.S. fiscal and foreign policy. Their main motivation in those times: protect U.S. industry from foreign opposition. It wasn’t until colossal industrial growth coupled with the introduction of the income tax rendered them less critical to the government balance sheet, and their use declined. Post-World War II, tariffs took on the negative connotation you see today. The West largely eschewed them in favor of free trade...
  • United States GDP Growth Continues Exceeding Expectations

    Today, the Bureau of Economic Analysis released its advance estimate for United States GDP for the fourth quarter of 2019 and the entire calendar year of 2019. The release estimates that real GDP grew 2.1 percent at an annual rate in the fourth quarter of 2019 and 2.3 percent over the four quarters of 2019. Consumer spending and residential investment posted notable gains, propelling GDP growth and setting the stage for future economic expansion. These results show that the economy remains resilient despite a slowdown across the rest of the world and the continuation of the longest expansion in American...
  • California Runs Off the Road. The new state labor law AB5 is causing trouble far and wide.

    Wall Street Journal ^ | January 23, 2020
    Nancy Pelosi famously proclaimed that Democrats had to pass ObamaCare to find out what was in it. On the other hand, Democrats in California last year passed legislation outlawing many freelance and independent contracting jobs knowing the disruption it would cause—and voters are now discovering the damage. Ride-hailing app Uber this week rolled out changes for drivers and riders in California in an effort to duck the state’s new labor law AB5. That law reclassified a large swath of independent contractors from freelance journalists to Uber drivers as employees who are owed rest breaks, workers compensation, health benefits and paid...

    I was very skeptical when U.S. and Chinese officials announced the two nations had reached a “Phase One” trade deal last December. Neither country released any details regarding the agreement. Chinese officials have been exceptionally muted since the announcement, only emphasizing that the United States would remove a number of tariffs, without mentioning any commitments China had made. Neither the United States nor China even articulated a specific dollar amount of the additional U.S. farm products China pledges to purchase.Last week, both the White House and the U.S. Trade Representative’s Office posted the full text of the agreement, immediately...

    Three years ago! And one year from now (God willing!) Donald Trump will be sworn in for a second term. But in three short years, these are his accomplishments, just off the top of my head. TPP trade deal - gone Iran Deal - gone Paris Climate Change accords - gone NAFTA - gone (just last week replaced by USMCA) Individual Mandate to purchase health care - gone Corporate Taxes - slashed to 21% Regulations - large bulk eliminated Judges - Confirmed (185 total, 2 Supreme Court, 50 Circuit, 133 District) NATO - paying more of its dues ISIS Caliphate...

    Watch cable news, particularly CNN or MSNBC, and hear how the “walls are closing in” on President Trump. Impeachment is underway, a solemn and sober process, celebrated by House Speaker Pelosi handing out autographed pens during the impeachment article signing ceremony. One would think she was signing landmark legislation like the Civil Rights Act given the pomp and circumstance. Meanwhile the Senate passed the USMCA trade agreement, now ready for Trump’s signature, another promise made and kept by the accidental president who has no idea what he is doing. The rube of a president also announced a trade deal with...
