  • The BDS Campaign: Anti-Jew Leftists Breaking Federal Anti-Boycott Law

    Anti-Semites are violating federal law by boycotting Israel and Israeli companies and institutions. Activists in the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, one of the highest-profile global projects of the left, are subject to criminal and financial penalties, including jail time of five years and fines up to $50,000. A U.S. exporter can lose the right to export any products to any country. So why isn’t the U.S. Department of Justice enforcing the anti-boycott laws? President Donald Trump should order the Office of Antiboycott Compliance to come out of cryogenic stasis and get back to work, and order DOJ to...

  • Israel Doubles Down on Criticism of Obama Administration: ‘Ben Rhodes is an Expert at Fiction’

    Israel’s ambassador to the U.S. on Monday contemptuously dismissed White House deputy national security advisor Ben Rhodes’ denials that the Obama administration played a key behind-the-scenes role in getting a resolution condemning Israel through the U.N. Security Council, describing him as an “expert at fiction.” Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s government says it has “iron-clad” information indicating that the Obama administration had a role in the crafting and passage of the resolution that passed Friday in the absence of a U.S. veto. Ambassador Ron Dermer told MSNBC the Israeli government had proof that it would share that evidence with the incoming...

    The Senate late Tuesday will hold a procedural vote on a bill that supports Israel by allowing state and local governments to divest from entities that boycott, divest from, or sanction Israel because of its occupation of the West Bank. The provision is part of legislation numbered “S.1” that was to be the very first bill senators debate in the 116th Congress. In addition to the BDS language, it includes several Middle East security provisions such as new authorities for sanctioning Bashar Assad's regime in Syria and reauthorization of security assistance to Israel. But Schumer, D-N.Y., and Sen. Ben Cardin,...
  • Tucker Carlson Shows Corporate America How to Stand Up to Activists [Good read]

    There are few sights these days as pitiable as a corporation acceding to the demands of radical activists on the basis of an ostensibly insensitive comment made by one of its officials or employees. As the script normally dictates, the offending individual steps down, while the company profusely apologizes for its insensitivity and vows to redouble its commitment to “diversity.” That’s what makes Fox News Channel’s refusal to fire political talk show host Tucker Carlson in the face of an activist-triggered advertiser boycott so refreshing. By resisting the speech police, the network just might have set an example for other...

    UN Security Council Resolution 2334 was the first prong of outgoing US President Barack Obama’s lame duck campaign against Israel. Secretary of State John Kerry’s speech on Wednesday was the second. On January 15, stage 3 will commence in Paris. At France’s lame duck President Francois Hollande’s international conference, the foreign ministers of some fifty states are expected to adopt as their own the anti-Israel principles Kerry set forth in his speech. The next day it will be Obama’s turn. Obama can be expected to use the occasion of Martin Luther King Jr. Day to present the Palestinian war to...

    A [Muslim] Pflugerville speech pathologist is suing Pflugerville ISD and the State of Texas over a law that prohibits state agencies from doing business with companies that boycott Israel, arguing it's a violation of free speech. After it passed, several school districts added a clause to employment contracts stating contractors do not and will not boycott Israel. Bahia Amawi found out about the clause in August. She worked with Pflugerville ISD for nine years as a speech pathologist for young children, with a specialty in children who speak Arabic. When the district sent over her contract, she said she saw...

    I’ve written more about Dick’s Sporting Goods in 2018 than I ever thought I would. When the year started, we thought the company would have gotten the message that taking anti-gun stances wasn’t conducive to profits, but it didn’t. So Dick’s doubled down after Parkland and purged the rest of the AR-15s from its stores and then instituted a discriminatory policy against legal adults. And it’s biting it right in the kiester, too. In remarks made to the Goldman Sachs Retailing Conference and first reported by the Washington Free Beacon, CEO Edward Stack explained that the 3.9 percent decline in...

    So I was watching TV last night. (Yeah, I know, I know...) and while I was watching, a commercial for JCPenney came on. Now, do you remember a few years ago when they had Ellen DeGeneres as their spokesperson? Do you remember what happened to sales at JCPenney? You would think that after the disaster that occurred with that, they would learn from their mistakes. Apparently not. I saw two different commercials last night for Penney's , and in both of them the spokesperson was none other than Carson kressley. Remember him? Alumnus of the orginal "Fab Five" on "Queer...

    Considering that the Democrats in particular, and the left wing in general, are controlling the message emanating from major and minor media outlets I believe it’s time something is done about it. What these “elites” really care about is money and power, which is one and the same. The ONLY way to stop their false news reporting is to hit them where it hurts. When you actually take the time to watch CNN or read the “stories” they post online, it’s quite clear that it’s not just bias they are guilty of, but actual hatred for our president and for...

    This is CNN… On Friday, the outlet once dubbed the “least-trusted” name in network news for its rabid anti-Trump and anti-Republican bias, published an op-ed suggesting that women engage in a “sex strike” before the midterm election, no doubt to help Democrats. “It’s time for a revolution,” wrote Wednesday Martin. “At the polls, and in the bedroom. And in our understanding of who women are, sexually and otherwise. Given the tight interweaving of economic and political power with sexual entitlement, female sexual autonomy has never been more urgent, and women’s sexual pleasure has never been more political. Let’s consider what...

    The Washington Times ^ | October 24, 2018 | Alex Swoyer
    Democrats boycotted Wednesday’s hearing on another slate of President Trump’s judicial nominees, continuing their attempts to hinder Republicans’ plans to stock the courts with an army of conservative judges. The Judiciary Committee heard from four nominees, including two picks for the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, one of the most liberal panels in the country and long a target for Republicans who complain of activist liberal judges. Wednesday’s boycott is the second in a row after Democrats refused to show for a hearing last week on other court picks. Democrats say it is unprecedented to hold hearings on judges...

    Tennis chair umpires are discussing boycotting matches by Serena Williams following her meltdown at the US Open final. The umpires are talking about unionizing following the outburst last weekend. As fallout continues from Saturday’s heated U.S. Open final that saw Naomi Osaka defeat Serena Williams in a match marred by conflict and controversy, tennis umpires are having their say. They’re not pleased with Williams or what they see as a lack of support from the tennis world for chair umpire Carlos Ramos, who was on the receiving end of a heated outburst from the 23-time Grand Slam champion.

    NBC Sunday Night Football‘s coverage of the Packers’ win over the Bears averaged about 19.4 million total viewers and a 6.6 demo rating in the fast nationals, down 11 and 17 percent from last season’s Sunday opener. Last year’s Cowboys/Bears match-up went on to report 24.4 million viewers and a 9.1 rating in finals. Over on ABC, Miss America (4.3 mil/0.7) dropped 20 and 26 percent from last year’s pageant. Elsewhere, CBS’ Big Brother (5.7 mil/1.5) rose 21 percent and two tenths from last Sunday, while Fox’s Rel sneak preview drew 5.1 million viewers and a 1.7 demo rating leading...
  • Athletic stadiums try to boost attendance by offering up cheaper food prices

    As the NFL kicks off its regular season, some sports teams are experimenting with a secret ingredient to help reverse declining attendance: cheaper food. Recently, the Detroit Lions announced concession discounts for the first hour after gates open at the stadium, with $5 beers and lower-priced meal combos available at certain stands throughout the rest of the game. Lions Team President Rod Wood explained in a statement that the team’s program aims to serve fans “without hurting the quality or speed of service.” To be sure, concession sales are relatively inconsequential to an athletic team’s overall revenue, experts say. Still,...

    Not all forays into politics are equal. Two companies in the news in the past few days highlight this lesson. The Silent Majority has spoken. This is the story of In-n-Out versus Nike. Let’s start with In-n-Out Burgers. Liberals decided to call for a national boycott because In-n-Out committed the “sin” of donating to the GOP. How idiotic is the idea of boycotting a company for making a political donation? Almost every company, even the small businesses you buy from, is run by someone who has a political opinion. Having that opinion is protected by free speech clause of the...

    Shares of Nike Inc fell 3 percent on Tuesday as calls for a boycott of the sportswear giant gained traction on social media following its choice of Colin Kaepernick as a face for the 30th anniversary of its "Just Do It" slogan. Former San Francisco quarterback Kaepernick, the first NFL player to kneel during the national anthem as a protest against racism, posted a black-and-white close-up of himself on Instagram on Monday featuring the Nike logo and "Just do it" slogan, along with the quote: "Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything." Over 30,000 people were tweeting with...
