    An outrageous video of a man in a Costco has gone viral for all the wrong reasons. In an Instagram video shared by @millennial_republicans, a masked man in a Costco was holding up pepper spray towards unmasked employees demanding they stay away from him. During a verbal exchange with an employee, who was handling himself with a stunning amount of grace and class for the situation, the masked man shoved him! Yes, the masked man was so scared of maskless people getting close that he decided to make physical contact! (video at link). That maskless dude is a complete...

    Headlines like, “WWIII has likely started already, but we have been slow to recognize it,” from Bill Ackman, and corporate media pushing nuclear war hype and hysteria had sparked unease among American households who hadn’t felt this way since the early days of the virus pandemic when they were caught empty-handed with limited supplies to weather COVID lockdowns. Americans, many of whom have been transformed into preppers in a post-COVID era, are at it again, panic hoarding supplies as they fear Russia’s invasion of Ukraine could be the catalyst for the next world war (well, at least they think this...

    SEATTLE, WA—In a deal that probably has nothing to do with Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine showing disappointing long-term effectiveness, the pharmaceutical giant has announced an ambitious partnership with bulk wholesale giant Costco, and the unveiling of the new Pfizer-Kirkland Signature 5-Gallon Family Size Vaccine Booster Tub™. Every Costco store is now stocked with sensibly-sized buckets of the vaccine, complete with instructions, kid-friendly self-stick syringes, and a 5-pack of IV kits for families who have been led to believe in overwhelming safety over all other aspects of life. Kelly Earskin, while shopping for some chips and a jacuzzi, commented that the tubs...

    After getting heavy pressure from leftist fascists, Costco has joined the lynch mob and stopped selling right-wing racist hate pillows – that is, it has stopped selling MyPillow products because the company’s CEO Mike Lindell has dared to oppose the far-left agenda. Apparently Costco believes that only leftists want pillows, or deserve to have them.According to the New York Post, “the wholesale chain is among more than 20 companies that have cut ties with My Pillow.” The Post reported that “the decision will cost MyPillow between $4 million and $10 million in annual sales,” and that won’t hurt Lindell only:...

    Today’s case in point is the bizarre incident involving a self-proclaimed “future college student,” this person’s Twitter account consisting of two followers when the complaint was tweeted (it’s up to 11 followers as of this writing), a 2019 segment from a Candace Owens show on which Michael Knowles appeared, and Harry’s Razors. The future college student apparently took some time to find a video clip it deemed offensive, then looked for the companies that only later advertised on one of the participants’ shows, and then tweeted to Harry’s Razors about the 2019 video’s supposed offense. Avi Das notified Harry's Razors:...
