    MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace said on her show “Deadline” that CEOs of American companies who do not support the reelection of President Joe Biden were “disgusting.” On Lindell TV in January, Trump said, “We have an economy that is incredible. We have an economy that is so fragile. The only reason its running now is it is running off the fumes of what we did. It is just running off the fumes. And when there is a crash, I hope it is going to be during this next 12 months because I don’t want to be Herbert Hoover.”

    “Go woke, go broke.”This catchphrase has become more than a clever play on words. Like all clichés that make their way into common social expression, it’s a cliché because it’s generally true, at least in its sentiment.It was just a few years ago that the corporate giants of America took it upon themselves to champion the woke environmental, social, and governance (ESG) “standards” of politically correct attitudes and behaviors, and apply them to their business models.What could possibly go wrong?Well, as we’re now seeing, quite a lot can and will.Companies Take on the Woke YokeMany companies that took the ESG...
  • Gen Z Is Toxic for Companies, Employers Believe

    Companies are struggling to operate as Gen Z enters the workforce at higher rates, and a growing majority of employers say the younger generation is toxic for their business. That's the latest from a new Freedom Economy Index report conducted by PublicSquare and RedBalloon this month. In the survey, 68 percent of small business owners said Gen Zers were the "least reliable" of all their employees. And 71 percent said these younger workers were the most likely to have a workplace mental health issue. One of the surveyed employers spoke of Gen Z's "absolute delusion, complete lack of common sense,...
  • Acting Labor Sec’y: There’s Gouging, ‘Companies Are Taking Advantage of Market Forces or Just Charging More’

    During an interview with CBS’s “The Takeout” podcast that took place before the release of the February inflation numbers, acting Labor Secretary Julie Su said that there is price gouging and “One reason for inflation is that companies are taking advantage of market forces or just charging more in a way that increases their profit, but has nothing to do with worker’s wages.”

    People and businesses are moving out of Illinois, New York and California because of their far-left policies. These high-tax states are running out of things to tax to support their big spending policies. So they resort to lawsuits to get more money since they can't print it.

    In a surprising development today, the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) has withdrawn its proposed rule change previously submitted to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to allow “Natural Asset Companies” to be traded in the U.S. market. Idaho Dispatch explained in this article that Natural Asset Companies (NACs) were defined by the NYSE to be, “Corporations that hold the rights to the ecological performance of a defined area and have the authority to manage the areas for conservation, restoration, or sustainable management.” Also mentioned in the previous Dispatch article was the strong opposition to NACs by Marlo Oaks, the...
  • London Council Demands Private Companies Commit to LGBTQ+ Agenda Before Hiring Them: Report

    A leftist-controlled council local government in London has reportedly begun to require private companies “demonstrate their commitment to LGBTQ+ equality” if they wish to do business with the council. The Camden Council in Central London is said to have introduced measures to ensure that all firms hired by the local government are on board with the increasingly radical LGBTQ+ agenda. According to statements seen by The Telegraph, the Labour Party-run council has proclaimed that it will only “work with businesses whose values align with our own, and to use our position of power to positively influence”.

    Nearly half of US companies intend to eliminate Bachelor's degree requirements for some job positions next year, a new survey has revealed. And 55 percent said they'd already eliminated degree requirements this year, according to an survey of 800 US employers, carried out in November. It comes after Walmart, IBM, Accenture, Bank of America and Google announced similar plans. The survey found that the same employers that have already eliminated Bachelor's degree requirements were far more likely to continue doing so.

    A couple years ago, I wrote a piece for The Wall Street Journal lamenting how companies I patronize have turned increasingly political and woke. Many speciously echoed Democratic Party claims that Georgia’s recent voting law is racist without specifying how so. Others have been woke for a long time and are becoming more political by the day. I received many dozens of messages—more than I’ve ever received about anything I’ve ever written—and the piece generated nearly 2,000 comments on the WSJ website

    The Biden family “influence peddling scheme” raked in at least $20 million from 23 countries on four continents via 20 shell companies, the House Ways and Means Committee stated based on new disclosures from IRS whistleblowers. “The newly released information shows that, in addition to China, Russia, and Ukraine, the Biden family influence peddling scheme was a vast global operation with ties to at least 23 countries and likely more,” the committee said Thursday.

    22 Aug 202321 Democrat Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s office is hoping to draw high-skilled workers and companies to the state and away from red states by marketing Michigan’s lax laws around abortion and LGBT+ issues as “freedom.” The Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC), through a public-private partnership with the governor’s office, launched a digital ad campaign last week promoting LGBT+ lifestyles and abortion as “reproductive freedom,” The Huffington Post reported on Sunday. The advertisements are targeted to half-a-dozen mostly southern states where Republicans have passed laws protecting the unborn and laws protecting children from gender ideology and women and girls’...

    Companies in the United States have announced, so far this year, more than 400,000 layoffs — more than the layoffs announced in all of last year. The job cuts come as Democrats, on behalf of business special interests, demand more foreign competition in the labor market for employers to hire. The employment data, collected by Challenger, Gray & Christmas Inc. and published in Bloomberg, shows that roughly 417,500 layoffs have been announced from January through May by U.S. companies across sectors such as technology, banking, retail, and media, among others.

    Go woke, go broke. That phrase couldn't ring any more accurate than it does now. Conservatives on the forefront of the battle in boycotting companies that push the Left's pride propaganda are winning as woke companies see a massive downfall in sales. Since Target rolled out its "all-inclusive" line of "tuck-friendly" swimwear and t-shirts that promote gender identity targeting children, the company's stock price dropped 14 percent— falling for the ninth day in a row. When consumers discovered that Target was also selling items with satanic designs, JPMorgan analysts downgraded the company's stock and lowered their 12-month price target. Additionally,...

    Hit the road, Jack, and don’t you come back to China no more. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is a murderous, dictatorial, oppressive, and anti-American regime. It abuses its own people and works hard to undermine other nations. It’s time that U.S. companies pulled out of China for good. U.S. companies with branches or manufacturing in China include Apple, Tesla, Starbucks, Johnson & Johnson, Disney, McDonald’s, Yum! Brands (think Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, KFC), Dell, Nike, Walmart, Trader Joe’s, Kellogg’s, Tyson, and Home Depot. These companies get cheaper labor and higher profits while helping an economy completely controlled by the...

    Many major companies are “going woke” by advancing controversial progressive political ideas through their products or company policies. Having a major company like Disney, Target or Walmart express support for the LGBT movement or other ideas is starting to become cliché, as are the backlashes to their decisions. However, it might be surprising to learn that some of these very companies were either founded by devout Christians or have a history of appealing to conservative Christian culture. Here's a list of five major companies that have recently gone woke that have a Christian past. They include major retail stores, a...

    After the end of zero-COVID measures, China announced it was open for business and wanted to encourage the return of foreign investment. But something new seems to be happening that runs contrary to those claims. This week, China’s legislature expanded an already-broad counter-espionage law in ways that could potentially make almost anyone a suspect.The original version of the law, passed in 2014, was already “very ambiguous and very powerful,” said Yasuhiro Matsuda, an international relations professor at the University of Tokyo. “But China thinks it’s not enough,” he said…The new language in the amendment suggests “any organization and anyone can...

    The demise of Silicon Valley Bank will spread ripples throughout America’s economy.Silicon Valley Bank’s main focus was funding technology startups, according to CNBC. Although the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. insures up to $250,000 per client deposit, CNBC said the FDIC’s protection has limited impact because most of its customers were businesses.As of December, about 95 percent of the deposits at Silicon Valley Bank were not insured, Securities and Exchange filings said.That’s bad news for companies like the TV streaming company Roku, which had $487 million in Silicon Valley Bank, most of which is not insured, according to The New York...

    As the nation burned in the aftermath of George Floyd’s murder in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in 2020, companies fearing being victims of a woke digital mob put forth a new policy that was the mother of all window dressings: hiring diversity, equity, and inclusion directors. You'd be correct if you think this sounds like wasted salary space. Andm if you assumed that this was more of a fad than something genuine, you’re a jackpot winner. The reason for these positions being phased out in the workplace is simple: it’s racism. I’m kidding. It’s not, but you could guess this will be...

    As I perused a list of rules the British Royal Family must follow, one rule in particular jumped out at me. The Royals cannot express any political opinions. They cannot vote. They can't even speak publicly about politics or run for political office of any kind. With companies around the country increasingly perpetuating political stances, I thought of how appropriate it would be for companies to take a similar stance to the Royals, by not taking political sides. A political side we see being heavily pushed at companies is neither Democrat nor Republican, but rather Marxist. The teachings by Frankfurt...
