    With the case of the Aquarius ship, Spain of the new socialist government of Pedro Sánchez showed its welcoming and open face. But quietly and far from the cameras, all concentrated in the port of Barcelona, ​​Spain itself was becoming the most hostile European nation to Israel. First there was the decision of the third largest city of the country, Valencia, to embrace the boycott of Israel by proclaiming itself a "zone free from Israeli apartheid". Then the leader of the third largest Spanish party, Pablo Iglesias Turrión, head of Podemos, defined the Jewish state as a "criminal and illegal...

    Walmart has found itself on the receiving end of a torrent of outrage after it was discovered Monday that the superstore was selling anti-Trump Impeach 45 apparel on its website.

Ryan Fournier, chairman of the group Students for Trump, was one of the first to discover Walmart was selling the clothing item, according to the International Business Times. He asked the company in a tweet, What kind of message are you trying to send?...

    On CNN this afternoon, Ana Navarro said its not hard to understand why a restaurant might have asked Sarah Huckabee Sanders to leave. The White House press secretary said this morning she was kicked out over the fact she serves in the Trump administration: (TWEET-AT-LINK) Navarro said this afternoon people are clearly bothered to see President Trump lie and lie and lie. And while some people are offended by baking cakes for gay couples, she added, some people find the idea of tearing children away from their families and then lying about it morally offensive. She said she does feel...

    Some programmers were a little wary when Microsoft bought the company-agnostic programming platform GitHub for $7.5 billion in early June. Now, nearly 100 of them are threatening to leave unless Microsoft drops its contract with the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency, following widespread condemnation of the agency's actions to split up immigrant families at the US-Mexico border, but before President Trump signed his executive order reversing the ICE policy. Microsoft was actually one of the tech companies that most strongly condemned ICE, in fact, and one of the first to take a stand, saying it was "dismayed" and...

    You all have your reasons. Some are furious about domestic policies that lock child asylum seekers in cages. For others, its a foreign policy that supports Russia and denigrates allies. Maybe its just the man himself, who boasts of assaulting women. Or, it might even be the tariffs, sparking unnecessary trade wars that are killing jobs in the U.S. and abroad. Whatever the reason, youre reading this because you want to hit back and hurt Trump in the only place he cares about his wallet. Heres how:

    Youre gonna love the new Starbucks! Starbucks recently enacted their Third Place Policy which means employees should consider anyone who enters the establishment a customer regardless whether they make a purchase. We are committed to creating a culture of warmth and belonging where everyone is welcome, Starbucks said. Because customers who pay north of $5.00 for a fancy latte want to have a side of syringes. Starbucks enacted this policy after they faced a huge backlash when two black men were arrested at a Philadelphia location. This new policy is not only upsetting Starbucks employees, but paying customers as well,...

    Gov. John Bel Edwards issued an executive order Tuesday night (May 22) prohibiting Louisiana state government from doing business with companies that boycott Israel.

Moving forward, companies will be required to sign an agreement certifying that they aren't boycotting Israel before being awarded a state contract. The prohibition will not be applied to companies that have contracts with the state that total less than $100,000 or that have fewer than five...

    A few weeks ago, the journalism watchdogs Democratic Party apparatchiks at Media Matters* organized a boycott against Laura Ingraham after she tweeted something snotty about Marjory Stoneman Douglas student David Hogg. She apologized for it, but Hogg didn't care and neither did his handlers at Media Matters. The grown-ups saw a perfect opportunity to take down one of their most hated enemies, and they had no problem using the kid as a human shield. That's who they are, and that's what they do.It's not working, and I'm having trouble remembering the last time it did work. Jon Levine, The...

    Sponsors who left Fox News star Laura Ingrahams show at the behest of teen gun control activist David Hogg are missing out on a 20 percent increase in eyeballs. The conservative author of Shut up and Sing lost nearly 30 advertisers since a boycott against her show launched March 29, but those who held firm are benefiting from a ratings windfall. Data compiled by the media watchdog News Busters shows a jump from 2.23 million viewers prior to Mr. Hoggs campaign to 2.7 million since her return from a vacation.

    Fox News host Laura Ingraham returned to her show Monday night following a week vacation in the middle of a mass exodus of the program's advertisers over controversial remarks she made about a Parkland shooting survivor. Ingraham focused on freedom of speech in her first show back, and attacked the left's alleged stifling of conservative voices. Ingraham was returning to her show after announcing on March 30 she would be out the following week for an Easter break to spend time with her children. The announcement came at the end of a week in which more than a dozen sponsors...

    Fox News host Laura Ingraham has apologized, as has the network, for nothing more serious than her tweet: David Hogg rejected by four colleges to which he applied and whines about it. (Dinged by UCLA with a 4.1 GPA . totally predictable given acceptance rates.) Hogg actually has a 4.2 grade-point average. The 17-year-old Hogg, a survivor of the Feb. 14 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., is the new face of the anti-gun movement, having achieved overnight victim status, reserved, apparently, only for those on the left, which supposedly insulates him from criticism.
