    Twelve EU countries have warned investors not to do business with Israeli settler entities, amid a security crisis in Israel and Palestine. The group includes: Austria; Belgium; Croatia; Denmark; Finland; Greece; Ireland; Luxembourg; Malta; Portugal; Slovakia; and Slovenia. Portugal published its statement on Wednesday (2 July) and the others came out on Thursday. France, Italy, and Spain put out similar communiques earlier this week. 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...

TORONTO — Canada will not attend Durban III, a United Nations conference on racism next September in South Africa because the event has negatively targeted Israel, the country's immigration minister said Thursday. Minister Jason Kenney said Canada has lost faith in the Durban process, a conference that began in 2001 to develop strategies to defeat racism. "Canada is clearly committed to the fight against racism, but the Durban process commemorates an agenda that actually promotes racism rather than combats it." Next...

    Jesse Jackson isn't the only activist that can use corporate boycotts for political purposes. Starting next year, the huge Tea Party organizer FreedomWorks will urge supporters to punish huge corporations like General Electric and Johnson and Johnson for backing President Obama's progressive agenda. In an exclusive review for Whispers of their plan, FreedomWorks president Matt Kibbe says: "Tea Party activists are willing to tackle progressive CEOs just as they tackled progressive politicians. Judging by the results of the midterm elections, progressive CEOs should buckle up, because Tea Party activists are going to give them a very bumpy ride."

[T]hose detained pending acceptance by the federal government for status determination and possible deportation should be offered an alternative: (1) free one-way bus transportation to the nearest sanctuary city for them and all family members who want to accompany them,  (2) modest grubstakes of five hundred dollars or more per family to help with resettlement — to...

    PHOENIX — Arizona's governor enlisted the help of former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin yesterday to defend a new law cracking down on illegal immigration, as calls spread for an economic boycott of the state. Jan Brewer and Palin blamed President Barack Obama for the state law, saying the measure is Arizona's attempt to enforce immigration laws because the federal government won't do it. "It's time for Americans across this great country to stand up and say, 'We're all Arizonans now,'" Palin said. "And in clear unison we say, 'Mr. President: Do your job. Secure our border.'"

    PHOENIX - Gov. Jan Brewer emphasized Wednesday that Arizona won't back away from its tough new law aimed at illegal immigrants even if boycotts take business from the state. She said she is disappointed and surprised at the reaction - much of it from other states - and the calls to impose economic sanctions on Arizona. "How could further punishing families and businesses, large and small, be a solution viewed as constructive?" she asked. Brewer was speaking publicly at a summit of Arizona manufacturers, as were legislative leaders. A participant told them customers are threatening to boycott. "This is all...

    If you've paid any attention to political news lately, you have probably heard about the new law in Arizona that allows authorities to stop and search people under the belief that they may be illegal immigrants. In short, Latinos (since these are the immigrants people care about in the state) must now carry identification at all times, in some cases even birth certificates. It's a controversial law that's prompted serious outcry on both sides of the issue, but especially from activists who've deemed it an infringement on civil rights. The law has also been discussed in the basketball blogosphere, by...

    As we enter the eighth month of our punk presidency, the left’s desperation to enact the slow but sure evolution to statist health care favored in reality by Barack Obama has reached a fever pitch. Not coincidentally, boycott fever seems to be sweeping the nation. Two of them, assisted heavily by establishment media coverage, are quite visible. One that is perhaps as effective is largely unrecognized in elite circles. Finally, the most effective one may be a totally unorganized refusal to buy largely lurking behind the scenes. First, there is the situation with Whole Foods Market Inc. (WFMI). In an...

Out in Thousand Oaks, Calif., earlier this month, some residence scored a small victory by effectively closing down for a day a city-sponsored day-labor center. Last year Judicial Watch wrote the mayor about the organization’s concerns that the city was violating federal immigration laws by spending more than $133,000 of public funds between 2001 and 2007 to subsidize what amounts to city-sanctioned criminal activity, since mostly illegal aliens hang out...

"We are in complete disagreement with the behavior of Israel," Morsadegh told Reuters News Agency. "We are Iranians. We have no relations with Israel."

    Some subjects are hard to talk about, and wise men or women avoid discussing them at all. Well let me tackle one difficult subject, since I feel brave this evening. Boycotts I have never been a fan of boycotts, and see no merit to them. They hardly ever work. When a companies public stance on an issue, aggravates me, I don’t stomp my feet and swear that “none of my hard earned money will be spent on that product.” No I just rely on that little voice inside me to guide me while shopping. Not too long ago, I was...

    Liberal organizations and bloggers are in overdrive, after nationally syndicated, conservative talk show host Glenn Beck was said to have threatened Michael Moore's life. It's sparked a write-in and telephone campaign to get Beck off the air, via his syndicator, complaints to the FCC and calls for his arrest. Don't these lefties have a very selective sense of outrage? Here's what Media Matters, a leftist site, claims Beck said on May 17:

    David Livingstone, 41, of Hazel Park, shows the home page to his Web site on Saturday afternoon, Jan. 8, 2005, in Detroit. Livingstone is trying to spread the word about an economic boycott he'll participate in during the presidential inauguration on Thursday, Jan. 20. (AP Photo/Jerry S. Mendoza By ADRIENNE SCHWISOW DETROIT (AP) - David Livingstone says the idea behind the economic boycott he's organizing is simple: If people don't show up at work or buy things, companies lose money. As he sees it, that's money the Bush administration can't tax, and can't use to run the war in Iraq,...

    BUY BLUE? I DON'T THINK SO. Now here is an interesting website for you to take a look at. The title says "Choose the Blue." By searching the various categories through this website you can discover which political party PACs are supported by various corporations and corporate employees in several fields of business. The object of the website is to get loyal Democrats to stop spending their money with companies that lend the greater support to the Republican party. Some examples: In the auto insurance category, Progressive Insurance shows a 91% support for Democrats while State Farm shows an 81%...

    P&G ACTIVELY RECRUITS THOSE WHO PRACTICE HOMOSEXUAL BEHAVIOR TO BECOME EMPLOYEES Procter & Gamble actively seeks out individuals who practice the abnormal and destructive homosexual lifestyle to come to work for the company. It is the only group P&G seeks to employ based on their behavior. P&G recruits from this group because they practice the homosexual lifestyle. The company is currently running a promotion on the homosexual website GAYWORK.COM seeking employees whose sole distinguishing characteristic is sex with same-sex partners. In addition, P&G is a major sponsor of Out & Equal, an organization that bills itself as one that "offers...

    State denies redistricting map drawn to harm minority blocs AUSTIN (AP) — Attorneys for the state defended a congressional district map in a federal courtroom Thursday, attempting to disprove plaintiffs' arguments that the new lines were drawn with racially discriminatory intent, violating the Voting Rights Act. Attorney Andy Taylor questioned a map drawer about the intent with which each of the 32 districts was created by the Texas Legislature. "I'm not aware of splits made to break up minority blocks," said Bill Davis, a former Republican state legislator and lobbyist who testified as the state began its case in the...

    If you go into your local shopping mall, you'll find something missing from the counter at Abercrombie & Fitch, the clothing store that uses porn to sell clothing to kids. The Christmas edition of its quarterly magazine is gone. Although the company won't admit it, economic pressure from thousands of citizens is almost certainly the reason it pulled the "Christmas Field Guide" from all 651 stores. The issue featured pictures of naked male and female models in sexual poses, including group sex. And advice from a so-called "sexpert" urges kids to get as much sexual experience as they can in...

    Clifton Kirkpatrick, the stated clerk of the Presbyterian Church (USA), has coaxed his allies in the National Council of Churches to join the PCUSA's boycott of Taco Bell. "Any time a Christian community comes together and seeks to exercise economic justice in this way, it is because there is a very serious injustice that cannot be resolved in any other way," said the Rev. Clifton Kirkpatrick, one of leaders of the social-activist ecumenical body which held its annual assembly in Jackson, Miss., on Nov. 6-8. Kirkpatrick introduced the resolution calling on the NCC to join a tomato-picker's labor union in...

    As many of you know, CBS recently ran a two part series on homeschooling that was outrageously bias and misleading. Today, it has been reported that they are planning a TV movie that will smear Ronald Reagan. We have put up with Rather for so long but enough is enough. CBS needs to be held accountable to the truth. We need to do something. Free Republic is about grass-roots conservatism. Therefore, I propose we create a website at www.boycottcbs.org. The domain is available and could be live in 24 hours. I am willing to put up the money for domain...

    I am hoping to get folks to quit shopping at Target because they sell these awful, dirty, FCUK EWE products at Marshall Field's here in Mpls. For any retailer here in the Heartland to spit on the morals and standards that most of us live by is just unbelievable. Target refuses to follow Federated who dropped this line of Degenerate cosmetics and tee shirts and other clothing after a week of protests from God fearing Christians all over the Midwest. Target says No, we will sell what we want. Well, we consumers who don't want our teen age grandchildren wearing...
