    There’s a run on Trump Wine, with stores in the Washington region selling out of bottles bearing the president’s name. Mike Mackie, co-owner of The Wine Cabinet in Reston, Va., says the brand is flying off his store shelves quicker than he can restock it for multiple reasons.

    Wegmans is consistently named one of the best companies to work for, recently scored the second-best corporate reputation in America, and has had a cult following among fans for years.So why are customers suddenly threatening to boycott the Rochester-based grocery store chain?The Democrat & Chronicle reports Wegmans is facing boycotts for carrying products with President Donald Trump's name on them. The company has 10 locations in Virginia that sell bottles from the Trump Winery in Charlottesville, Va., drawing the ire of the National Organization for Women and other groups."Certainly if Wegmans is carrying Trump wines, I personally will not shop there," Terry O'Neill,...

    On February 2, retail chain Nordstrom announced that they would drop Ivanka Trump’s clothing line, which sparked major controversy to whether the decision was political, based on her father’s presidency. Nordstrom said the choice was based on the performance of the brand. Actor Scott Baio, a supporter of President Trump, and his family have more than $30,000 last year at Nordstrom, but since the store decided to drop Ms. Trump’s brand, he says he is no longer willing to shop at the retailer. Baio also fired back at liberals who are boycotting stores that sell Trump merchandise.

    Six weeks ago, Ivanka Trump was sitting with her husband and their three young children aboard a commercial JetBlue flight departing from JFK airport. Another passenger, Brooklyn employment attorney Daniel Goldstein, approached her and began screaming taunts. ‘Your father is ruining the country!’ he bellowed, as he held his own baby in his owns. Then he screamed at JetBlue staff. ‘Why is she on our flight? She should be flying private!’ Goldstein’s husband, a Hunter College professor named Matthew Lasner, tweeted gleefully from the plane seconds before the incident: ‘Ivanka and Jared at JFK T5, flying commercial. My husband chasing...

    L.L. Bean likes to stay out of politics, but a donation by a member of the Bean family is putting the retailer on the defensive. The Maine-based company issued a statement late Sunday after being targeted for boycott for alleged ties to Republican President-elect Donald Trump. The founders of the hashtag #GrabYourWallet included Bean on the list after The Associated Press reported that L.L. Bean’s granddaughter, Linda Bean, contributed $60,000 to a political action committee supporting Trump. The donation exceeded the PAC’s contribution limit...

    Inauguration performances use to be an honor, a celebration of America’s unique electoral system. But the media has reduced this year’s to a B-list side gig that only desperate artists would dare to play at. When news broke that popular blind tenor Andrea Bocelli would be singing at Trump’s inauguration, people took to social media and started a push to punish him for showing any support for the President-elect. Now, one month before the event, Bocelli has decided the performance isn’t worth the backlash. Twitter users adopted the #boycottbocelli hashtag to show their horror that a well-respected artist would dare...

    BDS Flounders Amid String of Humiliating Defeats How anti-BDS legislation has neutered the group and hampered its ability to function. May 31, 2016 Ari Lieberman    It’s been a really bad month for the anti-Semitic BDS movement, a strange alliance of radical leftists and Islamists who advocate the destruction of Israel through economic and cultural boycotts.  The hate group suffered a number of major setbacks in recent weeks. Some of these reversals represent mere moral victories but others have far reaching consequences that may well spell doom for BDS’s future operations and ability to function.  In May, the Strasbourg-based...

    Advocates of traditional family values are calling for a boycott of Target in response to the retail giant's announcement that they allow transgender people to use the restroom and dressing room that aligns with their preferred gender identity. The other way of saying this is that grown men have unrestricted and no-questions-asked access to bathrooms designated for women and girls. Via their website, Target announced, "[W]e welcome transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity. …Everyone deserves to feel like they belong." Critics allege that this move is less...

Yes and NoBottom line: There are no aborted embryonic or fetal cells in any of PepsiCo’s final products.But: Aborted cells are used in the development of artificial flavor enhancers by biotech company Senomyx, with which PepsiCo signed a four-year, $30 million agreement in 2010 for research and development. No Pepsi products containing Senonymx flavor enhancers should be expected until 2013.Senomyx’s disputed cell line is HEK-293, derived from the kidney...

Germany and the UK already did it months ago. Poland is expected to publish a warning shortly. The Irish foreign ministry said the action “has been coordinated at EU level”. …

    Internet activists are at it again. Following yesterday’s news regarding the appointment of Condoleezza Rice, former United States Secretary of State and National Security Advisor, to the board of cloud storage and syncing service Dropbox, a petition has sprung up online, demanding that users tell Dropbox they’re opposed to this move, and threaten to leave the service if Rice isn’t removed from the board. The appointment was not met without controversy, of course, as Rice’s position in the Bush administration saw her commenting on Saddam Hussein’s alleged weapons of mass destruction, which played a role in the U.S. deciding to...

    A delegation of 14 leaders from the Presbyterian clergy, a church that in the past supported boycotting Israeli products manufactured in Judea and Samaria (Shomron), arrived last week to visit Israel. The visit was organized by the America-Israel Friendship League (AIFL); the delegates’ goal was to discover Israel personally and to better understand the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Representatives from the Presbyterian Church, which has an estimated six million followers, visited the Soda Stream factory, which is located in Maaleh Adumim, east of Jerusalem. They spoke to representatives from the management and several employees. While some United States-based religious groups, such as...

    John Kerry is clearly not motivated by anti-Semitism, Economy Minister Naftali Bennett said Monday, setting the record straight after a lawmaker from his own party last month accused the US secretary of state of harboring hatred for the Jewish people. “Kerry is no anti-Semite. Whoever suggested that is flatly wrong,” Bennett, the chairman of the Jewish Home party, told American Jewish leaders in Jerusalem. “We might sometimes disagree but America is our biggest friend; it’s our strategic friend. It’s not only an ally, it’s a big friend. However, definitely, we can agree to not agree.” …

    US Secretary of State John Kerry on Saturday threatened Israel that a failure in the peace talks would lead to global boycotts and delegitimization of the Jewish state. The warning comes as no surprise to those familiar with reports earlier in the month, which revealed that Kerry is orchestrating the European boycotts against Israel. Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon responded to Kerry’s threats of boycotts, saying “we respect Secretary of State Kerry, but will not hold talks with a gun to our head. Friends don’t put ultimatums on the security of the state of Israel.” …
  • Trayvon Martin case a travesty of justice: Acquittal was largely due to institutional racism

    Al Jazeera ^ | August 8, 2013 | Susan Abulhawa, Palestinian author
    The "not guilty" verdict for George Zimmerman's killing of Trayvon Martin did not come as a surprise to African Americans or anyone familiar with the US justice system. Ultimately, the trial was theatre because the decision to clear Zimmerman was effectively made the same day that he shot Trayvon, a 17-year-old African American. Footage of the "arrest" of Zimmerman showed him walking into the police station without handcuffs, even though it was not disputed that he had shot and killed an unarmed teenager. The police knew, from Zimmerman's own 911 calls, that he had stalked Trayvon. They knew that Zimmerman...

    I’ve sat by and watched progressives attack our liberties, our Constitution and our way of life for long enough. No more. For too long, conservatives have been content to sit on what we call the high ground while the Left racks up small victory after small victory until all we have left is the high ground under our butts. Enough. They go after Rush Limbaugh, and conservatives say, “This is an outrage,” but do nothing. The most extreme, racist left-wing groups contact advertisers and sponsors and pressure them to abandon shows and networks that made them. And too often –...
