    Nike released a simple but powerful ad Friday evening following the police-involved death of George Floyd in Minneapolis earlier this week. The footwear company posted a minute-long ad with white text over a black screen on its Instagram urging people not to “turn your back on racism” and instead “be part of the change.” "For once, Don't Do It,” the text read, playing on Nike’s popular slogan. “Don't pretend there's not a problem in America. Don't turn your back on racism. Don't accept innocent lives being taken from us. Don't make any more excuses. Don't think this doesn't affect you....

    It seems a number of major US media outlets have financial ties to the Chinese Communist Party, and it shows in their coverage. Despite the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) record of oppression, corporate media outlets are parroting the authoritarian government’s propaganda, even in the midst of an outbreak the CCP worsened through a cover-up. Many of those media outlets have financial ties to Chinese companies with intense oversight from the CCP.“You often see representatives from American companies with financial ties to China naturally become defenders of the CCP’s policies and spreading the CCP’s propaganda,” said Helen Raleigh, an author and...

    Fox News has “cut ties” with pro-Trump personalities Diamond & Silk, who until recently appeared on the network’s online streaming network, Fox Nation, according to the Daily Beast. The report comes after the pair appeared to muse whether Chinese coronavirus deaths in the U.S. were inflated to reflect poorly on President Donald Trump. “What I need to know is how many people have passed away in New York, and what I need to know is: Who has the bodies?” Diamond asked during a March 30th livestream. “I need for somebody that does investigative work to call the morgues. To call...

    If it says "Made in China" I'm not buying...and no, that's not racist. The CCP are an enemy, they don't even care about their own people. The CCP must be crushed, so long as their economy continues to grow it won't happen. We have far too many products related to our national security coming from there. Buy American/British first...then elsewhere - just not China.

    Actress Patricia Arquette is urging people to participate in a one-day economic shutdown that is designed to inflict damage on the U.S. economy and hurt President Donald Trump. Arquette posted a message to Instagram on Thursday promoting the March 2 event, telling her followers that they should refrain from making any purchases — presumably, including food and medication — for a 24-hour period as part of the #resist movement against the Trump administration.

    Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee boycotted a hearing on Wednesday, complaining that the committee’s Democratic chairman Adam Schiff has neglected proper oversight of the intelligence community by failing to hold a hearing on the Justice Department inspector general’s report detailing the FBI’s FISA abuses. “Under your chairmanship, the House Intelligence Committee has strayed far from its mandate of overseeing the Intelligence Community,” the panel’s nine GOP members wrote in a letter to Schiff obtained by the Daily Caller. “Until the Committee prioritizes oversight activities related to urgent and critical concerns, Republican Members cannot support distractions from our core responsibilities,”...

    A third House Democrat announced plans on Monday to boycott President Trump's Tuesday State of the Union address, which will take place a day before the Senate is expected to acquit the president in his impeachment trial. Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.), who also skipped Trump's previous State of the Union addresses, said that he will not be attending the speech on Tuesday. “I have chosen not to dignify Trump’s parade of lies about health care, his persistent exaggeration, and his personal attacks with my attendance at this year’s State of the Union Address. His appalling performances each day continue to...

    Bernie Sanders supporters are known for their steadfast loyalty to the socialist Vermont Senator, and some are promising to sit at home on Election Day if Joe Biden becomes the party’s nominee. These supporters warn that nominating another establishment candidate will ensure Trump’s reelection because they’ll sit it out.Sanders’ supporters feel he “isn't getting his due though he's proven to have staying power in public opinion and fundraising, even after suffering a heart attack last October,” reports the Washington Examiner. “As of last week, he leads a tight four-horse race in Iowa ahead of the first-in-the-nation caucuses on Feb....

    The Hallmark Channel certainly wasn’t expecting to find itself at the center of a viral culture war controversy this weekend. But in 2019, corporations never know which move might grab the internet’s attention. The controversy started when Hallmark decided to cancel an advertisement they had accepted from the wedding planning service Zola. The ad depicted, in a humorous fashion, a lesbian wedding, and at one point, the couple kisses. The conservative group One Million Moms complained to Hallmark and launched a petition, angered that an advertisement on the family-friendly network showed a type of family arrangement not in accordance with...

    Walmart shoppers are threatening to boycott the store after discovering employees aren't paid extra to work on Thanksgiving. Instead, Walmart offers them 10% and 15% discounts to shop in its store. The 15% discount is only available Dec. 5 and Dec. 6. Walmart said the policy has been in place for three years. "We simplified our paid time-off policies in 2016 to combine vacation, holiday, sick and personal time into one bucket," Walmart said in a statement. "As part of that change, we no longer offer holiday pay. We did this to give our associates greater flexibility and more choice...

    Oregon Congressman Earl Blumenauer's call for a boycott of Gordon Sondland's hotels got a short spin in the impeachment spotlight Wednesday morning as Republicans blasted the congressman for "bullying" a congressional witness. U.S. Rep. Mike Conway, a West Texas Republican, used his three minutes of committee time Wednesday, Nov. 20, to slam Blumenauer's boycott call. Conway said the boycott was intended to intimidate Sondland during his congressional testimony before the House Intelligence Impeachment Inquiry. "Mr. Blumenauer should not be using the vast influences that we have to bully you (Sondland) and your businesses into harm the hundreds or thousands of...

    The Israeli Foreign Ministry tweeted a map of the areas most affected by Palestinian Arab rockets, explaining that “one million Israeli civilians are forced into shelters”. After the Israeli army eliminated the commander of the Islamic Jihad Abu al Atta in a building in the Shejaeya district of Gaza, terrorists from Gaza responded with the launch of over 250 missiles, reaching even Tel Aviv, Nathan A. Sales, coordinator of the US State Department for terrorism, revealed the total amount of money Iran is spending to finance anti-Israel terrorism: Iran provides 700 million dollars a year to Hezbollah and an additional...

    [Catholic Caucus] Catholics Petition US Bishops to Halt Abortion, LGBT Activist Funding Appeal warns that CCHD leadership 'has no moral compass' WASHINGTON (ChurchMilitant.com) - Catholic research and education apostolate the Lepanto Institute is partnering with LifeSiteNews to demand the U.S. bishops withdraw funding from pro-abortion, pro-homosexual activist groups. On Tuesday, Lepanto Institute founder and president Michael Hichborn published a report showing that the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD), a controversial anti-poverty arm of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), continues to fund groups that oppose Catholic teaching.  Commenting to Church Militant on his findings, Hichborn asked: "How many times does the CCHD have to...

    Netflix continually shows an absolute lack of regard for basic decency when it comes to the content they offer subscribers. Perhaps the single greatest offender among Netflix’s offerings is ‘13 Reasons Why,’ their smash hit teen drama laced with suicide, rape, graphic sex scenes, and more. Everything you want your children to be inundated with all in one convenient television series, right? 13RW goes beyond typical sin-glorifying entertainment, however. Centered largely around the suicide of Hannah Baker, one of its main characters, the show has prompted copycat suicides. According to the American Family Association, a young woman, Anna Bright took...

    Back in 2016, California passed a new law (Assembly Bill 1887) establishing a naughty list of states that don’t conform to their high moral standards. The bill created a travel ban, forbidding state-funded or endorsed travel to states that failed to provide “protections against discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.” They quickly began adding states to the list, including Texas, Oklahoma, Mississippi and Kentucky. (Clever readers are probably noticing a pattern already.)This week, California’s woke Attorney General, Xavier Becerra, broke out his sharpie and added another name to the list. This time it was Iowa,...
