  • Transgender woman arrested for voyeurism at Target

    A transgender Idaho Falls woman was arrested Tuesday on one count of felony voyeurism for a report that she took pictures of another woman changing clothes in a dressing room at Target in Ammon. Shauna Patricia Smith, 43, is in custody in the Bonneville County Jail under the name Sean Smith, according to the jail’s active inmate roster. A Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office news release said the suspect also is known as Sean P. Smith. Sheriff’s deputies responded Monday to the store after a woman reported that someone was taking pictures of her while she was inside a dressing room...

    Minneapolis — Target cut its profit and comparable-store sales outlook amid stiffer competition and its own stumbles in areas like grocery sales. The discounter’s second-quarter net income fell nearly 10%, though that was better than what most had expected. Sales at stores open at least a year fell 1.1%, reversing seven straight quarters of gains. Target shares were down more than 6% in mid-morning trading Wednesday. The quarter underscores challenges that Target and other retailers face from and shoppers who remain cautious about spending.

    Evangelist Franklin Graham has called on shareholders of Target to dump their stock — saying the department store's policy regarding the use of its bathrooms by transgender people invites "sexual perverts into their stores." His plea follows reports of a transgender woman being arrested at a Target store in Utah for allegedly snapping pictures of a teenager in a changing room. "I told you so, it was just a matter of time. Target is putting their customers at risk — and their shareholders. I wouldn't be surprised if people started dumping their stock, and they should!" Graham, who runs the...

    HOUSTON - The Houston Police Department is asking the public for help in its investigation into a child indecency case at a Target store. The incident happened inside the men's bathroom at the store in the 6800 block of West F.M. 1960 on May 13. A 9-year-old boy told police a man entered his bathroom stall and touched him inappropriately. The boy ran out of the restroom and hid under a water fountain near the restrooms until his mother came out of the women's restroom. He then told her what happened.

    Target stocks continue to fall and are at almost a $20 loss per share, but that isn’t stopping the retail company from suing one of their own customers who saved another shopper from a stabbing attack. Target stocks plunged $2.5 Billion in just 10 days once word got out about the company's pandering to less than half a percent of the population, which would open up bathrooms to those of the opposite gender. The stocks continue to fall and are at almost a $20 loss per share, but that isn't stopping the retail company from suing one of their own...

    NEW YORK (AP) — Consumer backlash is growing against Target's stance on what type of bathrooms its transgender customers and employees can use. Two weeks ago, the Minneapolis-based discounter issued a statement that said customers and employees can use the restroom or fitting room that "corresponds to their gender identity." The move made Target the first major retailer to take such a prominent position on the issue, and won praise from supporters of transgender rights. But Target's position has also sparked criticism on social media. One online petition started by a group called The American Family Association, a conservative Christian...

Peter Baklinski reports for, March 4, 2016, that a biological man claiming to be ‘transgender’ so as to gain access to and prey on women at two shelters in Toronto, Canada, was declared by a judge to be a “dangerous offender” and sentenced to jail “indefinitely”.

    More than 1,000,000 people have signed the boycott pledge against Target, following the secretive decision by executives to open all of their stores’ bathrooms and changing rooms to people of both sexes. “That’s a million families who are going to spread the word about Target, so they may not get those customers back,” or their money, said Tim Wildmon, president of the American Family Association, which has hosted the boycott.

    I referred in the previous post to the world's "attempting to secularize Christmas this year as never before." Perhaps the best example so far (of which I am aware) is the use of the term "holiday tree" by retailers such as Lowe's: While this picture is of a store in Texas, I know of at least one Lowe's store in Alabama that is using this term. Although I am not particularly enthusiastic about the commercialization of Christmas, this attempt by secularists to completely remove the name of Jesus from the holiday in which we remember and honor His Nativity is...

    AgapePress) - An official with a pro-family group reports that a boycott campaign aimed at Target Stores nationwide has succeeded in attracting hundreds of thousands of consumers who say they intend to shop elsewhere during what is traditionally the busiest shopping weekend of the year. On Friday (Nov. 18) the American Family Association (AFA) launched on online boycott campaign against Target, citing the retailer's decision to ban Salvation Army kettles from their store entrances as well as the use of "Merry Christmas" in their in-store promotions and retail advertising. By the following Monday, almost 300,000 individuals had "signed" an online...

    Retail giant punished for banning Salvation Army, 'Merry Christmas' A traditional-values organization is urging consumers to stay away from Target stores on Thanksgiving weekend, a heavy shopping period, as it continues to lead a boycott of the retailer. The American Family Association is asking supporters not to shop at Target due to its continuing ban on Salvation Army bell ringers outside its stores and its shunning of the phrase "Merry Christmas" in-store promotions and advertising. The most recent boycott of Target began Oct. 7, and AFA says it's beginning to affect the retailer's bottom line. "According to USA Today, Target...

    SHOP AT TARGET -- THEY SUPPORT LGBTQ FAMILIES Rainbow Law is calling for the LGBTQ community to support and shop at Target stores this holiday season. After Target refused to allow the Salvation Army to place bell-ringers and kettles at their stores (because they discriminate against the LGBTQ community), the anti-gay equality crusaders began their usual lies and propaganda campaign. There is no reason to let this attack go unchallenged. We have the power to counter the far right's relentless assault on our civil rights and liberties. And one of the most effective methods for defeating unfair practices is by...

    Saturday after Thanksgiving is the traditional day to purchase stamps for my annual Christmas card mailing... [snip] So, shortly before noon on that most recent post-turkey day, I sauntered into a neighborhood "U.S. Postal Store," [snip] and headed for the stamps-only section. I quickly found a packed wall of display racks offering a panoply of first-class postage devoted to the various elements of the year-end holiday season, specifically: 1) Christmas, featuring colorful, contemporary designs of Santa Claus with an array of inanimate, secular Yule symbols; 2) Kwanzaa, with not just one but two stamps promoting a totally fabricated "harvest holiday"...

    Just in time for Christmas, America's two largest news magazines devote this week's cover stories to debunking the story of Jesus' birth. Among the conclusions in Time and Newsweek: Jesus was born in Nazareth, not Bethlehem; there is little evidence of three kings following a star, and the story of the virgin birth may have been borrowed. "The Nativity saga is neither fully fanciful nor fully factual but a layered narrative of early tradition and enduring theology," Newsweek writes in examining the Sunday-school version of the birth of Christ. This may be unwelcome "news" to most Americans. A Newsweek poll...

    TARGET THE GRINCH:And the beat goes on... According to this morning's USA Today, Target Inc.  is sticking to its plan to kick the Salvation Army to the curb throughout this holiday season. For those of you late to this story, Target stores had long allowed the Salvation Army to be the only charity that raised funds outside their stores using their famous red kettles and the cheerful sound of Christmas Bells. This year the good will from the red bulls-eye came to an end.  According to the USA Today the impact will leave the Salvation Army short about 9 million dollars...

    Two dozen San Francisco schoolkids sporting white turtlenecks and Santa hats got a very un-Christmaslike civics lesson the other day when they showed up at Union Square hoping to delight Christmas shoppers with holiday carols. "They just wanted to set up next to the Christmas tree and sing,'' said Donna Vargas, one of the parents who escorted the fifth- and sixth-graders from San Francisco Day School on Friday's outing. Instead, they got the boot. Seems they didn't have a city permit -- so after a brief run-in with the park's security, the kids were shooed away. "How can children not...

    Target stores should be ashamed. Media reports indicate that Target is now banning the Salvation Army nationwide. I read that 25% of the Salvation Army's holiday collections have come from Target stores. What a sad lack of community spirit this exhibits. On their website they state that their policy of not allowing any solicitation is to protect their customers. Well, I don't need to be protected from bell ringers. They further state that they give two million dollars a week to charities. That doesn't make me want to shop there. For two years my request to take Operation Stuff the...

And while they're at it, the city is stopping a church group from participating in the annual "Parade of Lights", and singing Christmas Carols.Parade organizers claim that Christmas Carols may be offensive to some people....a church group who wants to march in the Parade of Lights and sing...
