    In the wake of two videos allegedly showing Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale of aborted fetal body parts, Republicans in Congress are working to ensure that Planned Parenthood is stripped of its federal funding. However, it’s not only the government that fills Planned Parenthood’s coffers. According to 2nd Vote, a website and app that tracks the flow of money from consumers to political causes, more than 25 percent of Planned Parenthood’s $1.3-billion annual revenue comes from private donations, which includes corporate contributions. 2nd Vote researched the corporations and organizations to find which supported Planned Parenthood and found that more...

    Macy’s was “inundated with complaints” from roughly 30,000 customers who are defending GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump, according to TMZ. Macy’s decided not to carry Trump’s ties after he made comments during his official announcement speech about illegal immigration. Macy’s along with NBC, Univision, and NASCAR— among others — broke business ties with Trump after backlash from the media about his comments. The thousands of Macy’s customers have decided not to shop at the store anymore and are cutting up their Macy’s cards. Donald Trump responded on Twitter saying, “I am so happy that people are boycotting Macy’s.”

    It’s a topsy-turvy world when law-breakers — those who illegally enter and stay in the United States — are sacred cows, while those who criticize the law-breakers are ostracized and demonized. On June 16, 2015, when Donald Trump announced that he’s entering the crowded race to become the 2016 Republican presidential nominee, he made some remarks about illegal immigration which brought the wrath of the PC Left on his head. Trump said: “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re sending people that have lots of problems. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.

    As retailers continue to use social media to promote their brand in real-time, they seem to be reacting in almost real-time to pulling a brand from their shelves when it gets caught up in a social media firestorm and threatens to put them on the wrong side of an important issue. Earlier this summer, certain retailers stopped selling goods bearing the Confederate flag after the divisiveness symbol from the Civil War featured prominently in online pictures of Dylann Roof, who is accused of killing nine people in a racially charged shooting in Charleston, S.C., on Friday, June 19.

The Miss Panama Organization and the Telemetro TV station said they wouldn't be a part of the Miss Universe contest, or broadcast it, "in a message of solidarity for our Mexican brothers and sisters." The contest is partially owned by Trump. Trump, a 2016 presidential candidate, has faced searing criticism and lost numerous business deals since his comments about Mexicans during his campaign announcement earlier this month.

Still, Trump maintained that his businesses are "very strong," and haven't been too hurt by the bad publicity yet.

    The horrific murder of a pretty young woman by an illegal alien at a prime tourist location in San Francisco is validating the argument of Donald Trump on the influx of violent criminals, and causing at least some local media reflection in arguably the nation’s most politically correct city. This morning edition of the San Francisco Chronicle website (which reflects the newspaper’s front page to some extent) gives prominent placement to Trump’s contention that the murder of Kathryn Steinle shows that he’s right. And the digital-only SFGate site gives him even more prominent play, using an unflattering picture. update:...

    It's every parent's nightmare, but true: Major U.S. corporations are funding a campaign of sophisticated, psychologically intrusive "gay" indoctrination programs targeting very young children in elementary schools across America. It’s part of a very well-planned and well-funded effort to reach children as young as possible without their parents’ intervention. The national program, called “Welcoming Schools”, skillfully works on the minds of young children in three ways: (1) Introducing the concept of homosexuality to children. (2) Telling them that homosexuality is normal and natural. (3) Telling them that their parents or friends who portray homosexuality in a less than positive way...

The country is facing what CNBC has labeled a tsunami of store closings and blogger Michael Snyder has called a retail apocalypse. JC Penney, which lost $586 million in three months in 2013, is planning to close 33 stores in 19 states and lay off 2,000 people. JC Penney’s stock has lost 84 percent of its value since February 2012. Sears has decided to shut down its flagship store in Downtown Chicago, and it has closed 300 stores in the...

    Get ready for the next era in retail—one that will be characterized by far fewer shops and smaller stores. On Tuesday, Sears said that it will shutter its flagship store in downtown Chicago in April. It's the latest of about 300 store closures in the U.S. that Sears has made since 2010. The news follows announcements earlier this month of multiple store closings from major department stores J.C. Penney and Macy's. Further signs of cuts in the industry came Wednesday, when Target said that it will eliminate 475 jobs worldwide, including some at its Minnesota headquarters, and not fill 700...

    Just out from Macy's, which first said the following: "The 2013 holiday season was successful for Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s as we offered fresh and distinctive merchandise, delivered great value to the customer and provided a robust omnichannel shopping experience... Even in a questionable macroeconomic environment with challenging weather in multiple states, the positive response from our customers during the holiday season is yet another vote of confidence that our well-established strategies continue to work for us." What well-established strategies one may ask? Why the following of course, which was also just disclosed in a separate news release "outlining cost reduction...

    So I sit down to watch the Macy's Day parade with my 9 yr old daughter, a 40+ year tradition for me, and NBC and Macy's decide the 3rd act will be the musical act from Kinky Boots, promoting homosexuality and cross dressing. It took about 2 seconds for my daughter to see that something was not quite right when she noticed the cross dressing Cabernet singer. "Dad, that's a man, and he's kinda creepy." Thank you Macy's and NBC for making me discuss cross dressing deviates on Thanksgiving Day. I dont think, however, that my conversation with my daughter...

    LAWRENCE - A Trenton woman shoplifted $250 worth of dresses from Macy’s Saturday afternoon, pushed a security officer, and then led police on a one-mile car chase before crashing and fleeing into a marsh along the highway, police said today. Shabrika Laster, 24, was captured after a 20-minute police search of the marshy area near Route 1 and Interstate 95, Sgt. Joseph Amodio said. Laster was in Macy’s at Quaker Bridge Mall at around 3:10 p.m., and had allegedly stuffed $251.98 worth of dresses under her tube top. “She was approached by Macy’s security,” Amodio said. “She was stopped outside...

    Last month for retailers, it was all about post-Turkey spending sprees. In December, at least one retailer is upping the ante by offering an all-night, last minute shopping marathons. Macy's announced Thursday that it would open all of its stores for 48-hours straight, giving last-minute shoppers wiggle room to buy gifts the weekend before Christmas.

    Snip snip snip. What's that sound? The sound of over 558,000 scissors at the ready. If Macy's doesn't cut its ties to Donald Trump, over half-a-million signers of an online petition will be urged to cut up their Macy's store credit card, the creator of the petition, Angelo Carusone, told TODAY this morning. Carusone, 30, said he started the petition after seeing a new Macy's ad that mixed in footage from "Miracle on 34th Street" with cameos from several of the faces behind Macy's celebrity brands. There's Justin Bieber, Martha Stewart, Taylor Swift, and then there's Donald Trump, skeptical that...

    A Clackamas County judge signed off Thursday on the first step to keep a young Happy Valley man from deportation. Judge Thomas J. Rastetter granted bench probation to Edson Barrera Gonzalez, who has been held in a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement center in Seattle for a year. Immigration advocates for Gonzalez hope to persuade ICE to release Gonzalez for six months while he applies to have his status changed to a misdemeanor criminal, rather than felon. Gonzalez, then a 19-year-old employee at Macy's department store, was arrested last year for giving unauthorized discounts and ringing up false returns to...
  • Macy's Has Hired A Huge Cohort Of New College Grads To Fill Its Executive Ranks (Retail picking up!)

    Macy's has hired 730 new college grads for full-time gigs in its Executive Development Program and 326 current students for summer internships. That's 1,056 total hires. This is a big new cohort for Macy's, and a 30 percent increase from last year's hiring numbers. It's good sign as Macy's continues to try to wrestle market share away from JCPenney. If JCPenney succeeds in its turnaround, Macy's is going to need as much top talent as it can get to fend it off in the long-term. The new hires will be working in stores, merchandising, brand development, online, IT, logistics, credit...
