    WASHINGTON (AP) — Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke is strongly disputing a claim by outdoor retailer Patagonia that President Donald Trump “stole” public land by shrinking two national monuments in Utah. Zinke calls the claim — made in large type on the company’s home page — “nefarious, false and a lie.” Zinke says in a conference call Tuesday that “it’s shameful and appalling” that Patagonia and other retailers “would blatantly lie in order to get money in their coffers.”

    That case, Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, takes aim at a Colorado law that bars discrimination based on perceived sexual orientation in places serving the public. Jack Phillips, the owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop, says the law violates his free speech rights by forcing him to “create expression that violates his sincerely held beliefs about marriage.” The dispute has attracted a lot of attention from the business community, including an amicus brief signed by 35 companies including Amazon (AMZN), Pfizer (PFE), and Apple (AAPL), which asked the court to rule against Phillips. Another group with an interest in the...

    The NFL and a group of players reached an agreement in principle late Wednesday night to partner on a plan to address social justice issues considered important to African-American communities, ESPN has learned. The unprecedented agreement calls for the league to contribute nearly $100 million over seven years to projects dealing with criminal justice reform, law enforcement/community relations and education. During a conference call Wednesday night, Malcolm Jenkins and Anquan Boldin, who lead roughly 40 players who have negotiated with the league office about demonstrations during the national anthem, guided the group through the highlights of the package, which represents...

    Do you think 2017 has been a pretty challenging year for the world? You’re not alone. Dictionary.com named its “word of the year” today. It’s choice? Complicit. The site announced its word of the year with a Trump joke, first suggesting it had selected covfefe for this year’s honor, although this year’s word choice is certainly Trump focused. The site defines complicit as an adjective that means “choosing to be involved in an illegal or questionable act, especially with others; having complicity.” Interest in the word spiked on April 5 of this year when Ivanka Trump told CBS This Morning...

    The holiday season will be a busy one for Amazon, and as 2017 draw to a close, it could be said this entire year has been a big one for the e-commerce giant, from its acquisition of Whole Foods to the HQ2 race and its expansion in its hometown, Seattle. But behind the company’s growth and expansion, and future plans, lies an immense, intricate logistics network that enables it to offer incredible delivery times to every corner of the country. The company’s footprint is pretty wild. According to Amazon, the company now operates more than 75 fulfillment centers and 25...

    Papa John’s apologized Tuesday for comments made by CEO John Schnatter, who had blamed the NFL and protesting players for the pizza chain’s struggles this football season. In a three-tweet mea culpa, the Louisville-based company did a 180 and said it supported players’ right to protest. During an earnings call two weeks ago, Schnatter lashed out at kneeling players and league officials for not solving the controversy. “The statements made on our earnings call were describing the factors that impact our business and we sincerely apologize to anyone that thought they were divisive. That was definitely not our intention,” Papa...

"We are continuing to investigate and are taking steps to prevent this from happening again," the company said in an earlier tweet. A Twitter representative declined to comment further.

    “Liberal, socialist elitists” are running the National Football League (NFL), ten-year NFL veteran Burgess Owens tells CNSNews.com. Interviewed by CNSNews.com on the Conservative Commados Radio Show, Owens, who won a Super Bowl with the Oakland Raiders in 1980, was asked how he thought Pete Rozelle, the NFL commissioner during his playing days, would have reacted if players had protested the National Anthem at games. Owens said that players were held to higher standards then, as the league was still in the process of branding itself as an “All-American” product:That was a time in which the NFL was being built. They...
  • Bannon Tried to Plant a Mole in Facebook

    Former top White House strategist Steve Bannon wanted to place a spy inside Facebook to monitor the social-media giant’s hiring just weeks before he was named to run Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, according to a report on Monday. Bannon, who resigned from the White House last month, got the idea to plant a mole from Chris Gacek, a former congressional staffer who now works for the Family Research Council, a group that lobbies against abortion and LGBT rights, BuzzFeed News reported, citing an email exchange between the two. “There is one for a DC-based ‘Public Policy Manager’ at Facebook’s What’s...

    The Politistick ^ | 09/24/2017 | Matthew K. Burke
    Why is it okay to disrespect the American flag, okay to wear a t-shirt praising communist butcher Fidel Castro, okay to depict cops as pigs, but not okay to wear a Christian t-shirt? Everyone is weighing in in the disrespectful NFL flag-sitters, so I might as well. Here are several points that make the case that NFL owners and the commissioner are utter hypocrites for allowing players to disrespect the American flag: 1) The NFL is a private company — it is not the federal government. Every private company has codes of conduct. 2) The NFL forced RGIII (Robert Griffin...

    Late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel has taken to scaremongering, with well-worn Democratic Party talking points regarding health-insurance policy. Between yuks, he occasionally accuses Republicans of being would-be baby killers, which is treated as an important political development because, well, Jimmy Kimmel is famous. This week, the comedian was back to explain why the new Graham-Cassidy Republican “repeal” bill is bad news. There were only two things wrong: Almost everything he said was either completely untrue or highly misleading, and his simplistic emotional appeal was completely disconnected from the real world. The comedian’s interest in policy was sparked by the...

    What to make of the career of Jann Wenner, who is selling the magazine he founded, Rolling Stone, capping a remarkable career in publishing? In the Age of Trump, we are instructed to admire successful businessmen, those who have, as the president likes to put it, “built a great company.” Wenner is nothing if not that. In 1967, he borrowed $7,500 from his family, including his future in-laws, about $50,000 in contemporary terms. Wenner is a child of privilege (he was a few years behind Maureen Reagan at the Chadwick School) and that loan was nothing to sniff at, but...

In a move announced Wednesday, OkCupid is putting a special badge reading #IStandWithPP onto users' profiles if they agree that the government should not defund Planned Parenthood. OkCupid said more than 80 percent of its users have answered that Planned Parenthood should continue to receive government funds, and now the company wants to join them in that cause. "At OkCupid, we feel strongly about championing the causes that are meaningful to our members," the company said on its official blog....

    New products have same price in both currencies, suggesting Apple is taking advantage of British customers’ acceptance of price hikes since the EU Referendum Tuesday’s iPhone X launch event brought familiar news to British viewers: the Brexit-induced devaluation of the pound means that everything is really, really expensive.

    The cosmetic company, L’Oreal, has run into difficulty with their latest “commitment to diversity.” Having hired British, transgender model Munroe Bergdorf, she promptly went on a lengthy Facebook rant about white people that is as idiotic as it is ignorant. The diatribe ignores some very basic realities and buys completely into the fashionable new “race hate” language that is being popularized by the MSM. First off, here’s the text: ‘Honestly I don’t have energy to talk about the racial violence of white people any more. Yes ALL white people. ‘Because most of ya’ll don’t even realise or refuse to acknowledge...
