    The Epoch Times techies are telling the newsroom that Xfinity is blocking customers from opening the news web site, as well as the backend editing functions. Any Instapundit readers encountering this problem? If you are, please call Xfinity and RAISE HOLY HELL! Update (from Steve): For what it’s worth, I’m on Xfinity and can’t get Epoch Times to load. But it loads just fine on cellular when I turn my phone’s wifi off.
  • Panic? US Mega-Corporations Rush to Abandon Vax Mandate

    Ron Paul Institute ^ | 12/12/21 | Daniel McAdams
    This week's nationwide annihilation of Biden's Federal Contractor vaccine mandate at the hands Georgia Federal Judge R. Stan Baker has resulted in a landslide retreat of cowardly mega-corporations from their so-confident bullying of American workers. Biden's illegal gamble, the nationwide Federal contractor vaccine mandate, has like his previous Medicare mandate and OSHA if-you-have-100-workers-mandatory-vax mandate been ripped to shreds early on in the courts. Biden's mandates have always been a bullying gamble, an admission that they knew they were engaging in illegal acts but that they would continue to use the not-insignificant weapons of the executive branch to blast as much...
  • OSHA's Suspension of Implementation and Enforcement of the Vaccine Mandate Means Nothing Unless Corporations Also Stop Enforcing It

    Earlier today, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration said it would suspend all “activities related to the implementation and enforcement” of the vaccine mandate imposed by Joe Biden’s fiat. It comes after the Fifth Circuit imposed a nationwide moratorium on the implementation and enforcement of the mandate in a blistering decision that stopped about two verbs short of calling the hastily cobbled together rule both stupid and duplicitous (see BREAKING: Federal Appeals Court Denies Biden Admin Request to Lift Stay on Vaccine Mandate).There is no reason for anyone to take a victory lap over this decision for the reasons I...
  • Exposed: Klaus Schwab's School For Covid Dictators, Plan for 'Great Reset' (Videos)[Davos]

    How is it that more than 190 governments from all over the world ended up dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic in almost exactly the same manner, with lockdowns, mask mandates, and vaccination cards now being commonplace everywhere? The answer may lie in the Young Global Leaders school, which was established and managed by Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum, and that many of today’s prominent political and business leaders passed through on their way to the top. The German economist, journalist, and author Ernst Wolff has revealed some facts about Schwab’s “Young Global Leaders” school that are relevant for...
  • Why Did Disney’s Jungle Cruise Have to Go Gay?(Or Why Did Disney's Jungle Cruise Have to Go Fag?!!!)

    Forgive me for being late to the party, but it was only this week that I saw most of Disney’s new movie Jungle Cruise. The movie is rated PG 13 and is based on the Disney theme park ride of the same name. It features megastar Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and tells the story of a courageous single woman in search of a healing cure located on the Amazon. Johnson is the boat captain, and the woman (Emily Blunt) is accompanied by her utterly wimpy, fear-filled brother (Jack Whitehall), who, it turns out, is gay. But why, oh why, must...

    Last April, when Major League Baseball pulled the All-Star Game out of suburban Atlanta in what it thought was a strident example of the powerful corporate punishment states would face if Republican lawmakers passed laws MLB did not like, its corporate, academic and cultural peers applauded the move. Commissioner Rob Manfred's decision was seen by those who agreed with him as a heroic one that leading American institutions should make when they want to counter what they consider a societal wrong. In fact, Manfred was just trying to avoid being canceled by the mob. If he had really believed in...

    Workplace chat software like Slack is probably the single most effective tool for making companies go woke. Organizing workers was a difficult challenge in companies that did not have unions. But while companies closely monitored union organizing, they actively encouraged the use of workplace chat software that made it all too easy for leftists to network, identify opponents, get them fired, and use those incidents to radicalize the company. The second most effective tool is the identity politics affinity group. Affinity groups or ERGs have become a popular tool by HR departments to organize internal woke caucuses. Corporate affinity groups...

You may recall Tiffany’s launched a new ad campaign a couple months back with a film featuring Jay-Z and Beyoncé (aka “the Carters”) in which the iconic butt sports the iconic Tiffany yellow diamond.The Tiffany diamond was found in a Kimberley diamond mine in South Africa (Botswana today) and was cut from 287.42 carats to 128.54 carats with 82 facets The jewel has been worn by only 3 other women in the world, American socialite Mrs. E.

    Some prominent French figures, including President Emmanuel Macron, are rejecting "woke" ideology that has been imported from the United States amid a breakdown in relations between the two nations. A cover story by Le Spectacle Du Monde, one of France's leading magazines, recently ran a piece titled "The Suicide of America" in which it blames the deadly withdrawal from Afghanistan on a "woke dictatorship" and questioned whether the American "empire was collapsing," Zenger News reported. Macron, who has been criticized by French progressives, told Elle Magazine this past summer that woke culture was "racializing" French society, Zenger reported. "I see...

    Australia's corporate sector has finally had enough of the ongoing lockdowns that have left the country's economy hobbled and its people cut off from the rest of the world for months.Increasingly frustrated by a slow vaccine rollout and the ongoing lockdowns, the leaders of many of Australia’s biggest companies, including BHP, Macquarie and Qantas have signed a letter demanding that the government acknowledge it's time to "learn to live with the virus," as many other countries have done, since "COVIDZero" has finally been exposed as an impossible dream.In the letter - which was reported on by the FT - the...
  • Corporate Social Justice Programs Don't Work

    According to a new report from The Washington Post, America's corporations have committed "at least" $49.5 billion to the cause of "racial justice" since the George Floyd murder last year riveted our national attention on race. This amounts to a little over $1,100 for every Black man, woman and child in America. Or, from another perspective, about $16,500 for every Black household earning $25,000 or less. But we're not talking about corporate America, despite their deep concern for racial justice, just simply giving black Americans cash. As much as they undoubtedly care about these Black citizens, they would never trust...

    Washington Post ^ | Aug 31, 2021
    A torrent of political groups representing some of the country’s most influential corporations — including ExxonMobil, Pfizer and the Walt Disney Company — are laying the groundwork for a lobbying blitz to stop Congress from enacting significant swaths of President Biden’s $3.5 trillion economic agenda. The emerging opposition appears to be vast, spanning drug manufacturers, big banks, tech titans, major retailers and oil-and-gas giants. In recent weeks, top Washington organizations representing these and other industries have started strategizing behind the scenes, seeking to scuttle key elements in Democrats’ proposed overhaul to federal health care, education and safety net programs. Among...
  • Does America Still Work?

    For nearly two years, Americans have engaged in a great woke experiment of cannibalizing themselves. American civilization has invested massive labor, capital and time in an effort to constantly flagellate itself for not being perfect. Yet America's resilience and its resources are not infinite. We are now beginning to see the consequences of what happens when premodern tribalism absorbs Americans. There are repercussions when ideology governs policy or when we take for granted the basics of life to pursue its trappings. Who cares whether the blow-dried media is woke if it cannot report the truth and keep politicians honest? Once...

    This is stupidity. This is insanity. This is suicide. American companies and institutions are purposely destroying themselves. They're ripping apart billion-dollar brands that have taken decades of hard work to build. And they're doing it in a matter of days. They're marching off cliffs like sheep. Keep in mind sheep are idiots. They have no brainpower. They can't think for themselves. If one sheep walks off a cliff, they'll all happily follow. Did you ever imagine CEOs of billion-dollar companies could be as dumb as sheep? Who committed suicide this week? Some of the biggest brand names in America ......

  • Corporatism Will Snuff Out Individual Rights Unless We Stop It

    06/09/2021 7:41:29 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 12 replies ^ | June 9, 2021 | Lori Roman
    For too long, conservatives have blindly supported corporations. While trying to support “free markets” we might inadvertently be supporting corporatism, a form of economic totalitarianism where government and corporations collude to destroy individual rights. When I moved to Washington DC in 2002 to accept a position in the Bush Administration, I thought that corporations might be allies of conservatives who were promoting free markets. I was wrong. Over many years working in public policy, I have been disgusted by corporate attempts to utilize the government to destroy fair competition by any means necessary. Am I a conservative Pollyanna? No. I...

    Finance ministers from the G7 group of leading economies are confident of striking a deal on taxing multinational companies at their meeting in London. The agreement is expected to include a global minimum rate of corporation tax. It would target tech giants such as Amazon and Microsoft. German finance minister Olaf Scholz said the deal would "change the world". He said a 15% rate would help pay back debts that have built up during the pandemic - and that he was "absolutely confident" there would be an agreement. "If we agree on the minimum taxation for corporates, this will help...

    When I quit my summer job at a pharmaceutical plant sticking labels on jars falling off a conveyer belt and decided to take a job at Amazon as a Prime shopper, I knew little of what to expect. It was better pay and closer to home, and that’s all that mattered.So on a humid day last August, I drove to a Whole Foods grocery store for orientation. Employees stood outside glued to their cell phones, smoking, adjusting face masks in boredom.There was a cardboard box with yellow Amazon vests. I took one and unwrapped the thin cellophane cover, then went...

    Corporations have taken advantage of Republicans for too long. I won’t take their PAC dollars anymore. [cut] For too long, woke CEOs have been fair-weather friends to the Republican Party: They like us until the left’s digital pitchforks come out. Then they run away. Or they mouth off on legislation they don’t understand—and hurt the reputations of patriotic leaders protecting our elections and expanding the right to vote. Enough is enough. Corporations that flagrantly misrepresent efforts to protect our elections need to be called out, singled out and cut off. In my nine years in the Senate, I’ve received $2.6...

    The other day, I was chatting with some friends about what to do about America’s new, alien mask culture: How can we drive it from our country, why it hasn’t been rejected yet, and what responsibility each of us bears for transforming this mere hope into a reality. At one point, a friend shared this short clip of Jordan Peterson. How would he answer the question, “Whose fault is it that the safety-above-all-else mask culture persists?” Peterson does not lay the blame on Joe Biden, Anthony Fauci, the legacy media, the Centers for Disease Control, the World Health Organization, or...
