    Susan Mauldin, whose identity is being scrubbed from the internet, studied music composition When Congress hauls in Equifax CEO Richard Smith to grill him, it can start by asking why he put someone with degrees in music in charge of the company’s data security. They might also ask him if anyone at the company has been involved in efforts to cover up Susan Mauldin’s lack of educational qualifications since the data breach became public. And late Friday Equifax said both Mauldin and the company’s chief information officer have retired effective immediately. Susan Mauldin’s LinkedIn page was made private and her...

    I must be much more fair and generous than liberals. Because I would never attack a CEO for what political causes he personally believes in.Liberals clearly don't feel that way. I remember a few years back when the CEO of Mozilla was forced by liberal activists to resign from his company because he gave a PERSONAL $1000 donation to a California PAC fighting gay marriage. This CEO didn't involve his company in politics in any way. He didn't use a dime of company money. The charity was not radical. In fact, it was so mainstream that the leftist voters California voted in favor of traditional marriage....
  • Insults Followed By Lies: Camping World's Marcus Lemonis Is the Dumbest CEO Ever

    In just a moment I am going to explain to you why Camping World CEO Marcus Lemonis is the stupidest CEO alive. In the meantime, after telling anyone who agreed with Trump's handling of Charlottesville "don’t shop at my business," Lemonis is now insulting the intelligence of his customers by straight up lying to them. I'm not the one making that claim. The leftwing Snopes is calling Lemonis out. Let's start with the full context of his original remarks: CNBC's Michelle Caruso-Cabrera: Marcus, you have a consumer-facing business, Camping World. So do you worry about — if you were on...
  • Camping World CEO Backs Down After Telling Trump Supporters to Shop Elsewhere

    From the “you just had to know THIS was coming” department, the CEO of the recreational vehicle and equipment chain Camping World is already backing down from statements that he made suggesting that some supporters of President Trump should shop elsewhere. The remarks of Marcus Lemonis have come back to bite him in the ass big time as he seems to be finding out just how many millions of dollars that his loose tongue and arrogance could cost him if Trump supporters took his advice and spent their hard-earned dollars at businesses owned by competitors. Now he is claiming that...

    Starbucks CEO, Howard Schultz continued his assault against the majority of Americans. Following the Charlottesville protests, Schultz said, “I know we’re better than this. The bigotry, hatred and senseless violence against people who are not white cannot stand.”   Howard Schultz is a disgrace. He recently came under fire for saying he was going to hire thousands of Muslim refugees over Americans/Veterans. He continues to side with the violent leftists by refusing to condemn Antifa, Black Lives Matter and Islamic terrorists. According to Schultz, only the white supremacists were violent, bigoted and hateful. Shocker.

    A CEO who bailed on President Donald Trump’s now-defunct American Manufacturing Council imported workers to take jobs in the United States. Intel CEO Brian Krzanich left Trump’s manufacturing council after he disagreed with the response to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. “I resigned because I want to make progress, while many in Washington seem more concerned with attacking anyone who disagrees with them,’’ Krzanich wrote in a blog post. “We should honor—not attack—those who have stood up for equality and other cherished American values.’’ But, as Trump’s manufacturing council was set up to bring back manufacturing and jobs to the...

    James Murdoch, the CEO of 21st Century Fox and son of conservative media magnate Rupert Murdoch, ripped President Trump's response to violence in Charlottesville, Va., last weekend, also pledging a $1 million donation to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). The Hollywood Reporter reported Thursday that it had obtained the email memo Murdoch sent to friends. In the email, Murdoch says he was concerned with Trump's comments on the violence that broke out after a white supremacist rally last Saturday. "What we watched this last week in Charlottesville and the reaction to it by the President of the United States concern all...

    For over a year at nearly every event NOT sponsored by Leftist Democrat and Black Lives Matter groups, the Police have stepped aside and allowed horrendous acts of criminal violence against event participants while rarely arresting anyone committing these heinous acts. These violent groups, like Fascist Antifa, are now inciting murder at these events. Who is allowing this to happen? Will the FBI please investigate these groups and determine who is ordering the police to allow them to commit violence? In March 2016, Presidential candidate Donald Trump was forced to shut down his campaign rally in Chicago due to violent...

    President Trump announced Wednesday he is shutting down two jobs councils, amid a wave of resignations by executives in the wake of the president’s response to the violence in Charlottesville. "Rather than putting pressure on the businesspeople of the Manufacturing Council & Strategy & Policy Forum, I am ending both. Thank you all!" he wrote on Twitter. The statement came amid multiple reports that the Strategic and Policy Forum, a group of top business leaders, had already agreed to disband.

    President and CEO of 3M, Inge Thulin, announced Wednesday he is leaving President Donald Trump's Manufacturing Council. "I joined the Manufacturing Jobs Initiative in January to advocate for policies that align with our values and encourage even stronger investment and job growth — in order to make the United States stronger, healthier and more prosperous for all people. After careful consideration, I believe the initiative is no longer an effective vehicle for 3M to advance these goals. As a result, today I am resigning from the Manufacturing Advisory Council," Thulin said in a statement posted to 3M's Twitter account.

    In the most instance, the CEOs of Merck and UnderArmor stepped down from the White House manufacturing council following Trump’s initial response to the Charlottesville violence that was widely panned in the media as insufficiently tough on white nationalists. Both CEOs’ decisions to step down received applause from public figures, including in the media. “I’m going out to buy Under Armour,” declared MSNBC host Joe Scarborough.

    On Monday morning, Merck & Co. Chief Executive Ken Frazier resigned from President Trump’s manufacturing jobs council to protest Trump’s deficient condemnation of the racist violence in Charlottesville, Va. Since then, membership on Trump’s Potemkin Village-like CEO boards has begun to look like something of a litmus test for American corporations and business organizations. Two CEOs followed Frazier out the door on Monday: Under Armour’s Kevin Plank and Intel’s Brian Krzanich. But representatives of some 40 other corporations and other organizations, including a couple of retired CEOs, are still members of the jobs council and a second panel designated the...

    Krzanich is the third executive to leave President Donald Trump's council in the span of a day — Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank and Merck CEO Kenneth Frazier both resigned earlier on Monday following the recent episode of white supremacist violence in Virginia. "I resigned to call attention to the serious harm our divided political climate is causing to critical issues, including the serious need to address the decline of American manufacturing," Krzanich said in Monday's blog post. "I have already made clear my abhorrence at the recent hate-spawned violence in Charlottesville, and earlier today I called on all leaders...
