  • Firearms Merchant Files Class Action Lawsuit Against PayPal And Other Payment Processors

    Blair Gladwin, owner of the California based Gladwin Guns and Ammo, filed three class action lawsuits last week against online payment processors PayPal, Stripe, and Square for singling out him and other firearms businesses. The payment companies required Gladwin and the other owners to reveal the nature of their dealings — after which the payment companies refused to work with them. Gladwin claims this type of discrimination is a violation of California’s Unruh Civil Rights Act Sections 51, 52(a) and 52(c), a law that protects federally-licensed gun stores from such refusals of business transactions. The class action lawsuits, according to...

  • Silicon Valley is Furious About Peter Thiel's $1.25 Million Donation to Trump's Campaign

    Inc. Magazine ^ | October 16, 2016 | Bartie Scott
    In response to Peter Thiel's pledge to donate $1.25 million to Donald Trump's presidential bid (reported by the New York Times on Sunday), some in the Silicon Valley-centered tech community are going public with a call to reject any company willing to do business with the PayPal co-founder. In addition to co-founding PayPal and data analysis software firm Palantir, Thiel sits on the board at Facebook and is a part-time partner and investor in startup seed fund Y Combinator. Thiel substantial donation to Trump doesn't come as a surprise--he did have a prime-time speaking slot at this summer's Republican National...

    Peter Thiel is putting his money where his mouth is. The billionaire PayPal cofounder is donating $1.25 million to Donald Trump's campaign, according to a source close to Thiel. Thiel has been a vocal supporter of Trump -- one of the most prominent in Silicon Valley. He spoke at the Republican National Convention and made history when he declared on stage that he was proud to be gay. Thiel's donation will be given through Super PACs and directly to Trump's campaign, according to the source. This is the first time Thiel will be donating to Trump. The donation was first...

    Living here in Silicon Valley, one of the world's wealthiest areas and home to thousands of affluent tech entrepreneurs, it is hard to imagine life in the Occupied Palestinian Territory. Life there is fraught with power outages, water restrictions, lack of medical supplies, an education system that has been weakened by bombings and forced closures, and high unemployment.

    Since rumors began to spread that a startup called Palantir helped to kill Osama bin Laden, Alex Karp hasn’t had much time to himself. On one sun-baked July morning in Silicon Valley Palantir’s lean 45-year-old chief executive, with a top-heavy mop of frazzled hair, hikes the grassy hills around Stanford University’s massive satellite antennae known as the Dish, a favorite meditative pastime. But his solitude is disturbed somewhat by “Mike,” an ex-Marine–silent, 6 foot 1, 270 pounds of mostly pectoral muscle–who trails him everywhere he goes. Even on the suburban streets of Palo Alto, steps from Palantir’s headquarters, the bodyguard...

    AMERICAN THINKER ^ | JULY 16, 2016 | Thomas Lifson
    I was excited when I first heard that Peter Thiel was going to be a speaker at the Republican National Convention.  While everyone naturally focuses on what Trump and Pence will have to say, Thiel, often labeled an “eccentric billionaire,” could help rebrand the Trump-era GOP. Like Trump, Thiel is flamboyant and loves shaking things up.  Andrew Styles of Heat Street: Thiel, who is also a Trump delegate to the convention, is an interesting choice. In some ways, Thiel’s support for Trump makes a lot of sense. Both are billionaires who like to disrupt the sh*t out of the status...

    A curious thing happened today with my Paypal account. I was trying to add money to Paypal from my bank account and I got an Error message that said I cannot add funds at this time. So I called Paypal and the young lady that answered the phone apologized and told me I would need to talk to a specialist. The specialist came on the line and informed me that I did not need to add funds to my account because Paypal would go ahead and pay whatever charges I made on my Paypal debit card and just pull the...

    We are opening up our non-profit home school co-op for registration and other purposes. We are loathe to use the bigoted Pay Pal, because of its hatred of keeping children safe from predators. I can "google" alternatives, but I would prefer to hear any real world recommendations my fellow freepers might have.

    A new report suggests that young educated South Africans plan to leave the country to work abroad, rather than plough their knowledge back into the local economy. The report comes from PPS, an insurance, investment, healthcare and financial planning specialist for graduate professionals. The company’s latest Student Confidence Index (SCI), conducted among over 1,500 South African students, revealed that 54% of the respondents plan to move abroad for work purposes in the next five years following their graduation. It follows a report published by New World Wealth, which showed that white millionaire numbers have decreased dramatically in SA – from...

    NOTE: PayPal pulls out of N Carlina but over anti-LGBT bill, but continues to have HQ in Singpore. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ A FOUR-YEAR battle ended yesterday, when Singapore's highest court upheld the constitutionality of Section 377(a) of the country's penal code, which renders any man convicted of committing "or abet[ting] the commission of...any act of gross indecency" with another man liable to two years in prison. Tan Eng Hong first challenged the law in September 2010, after he was charged under 377(a) for having oral sex with another man in a public-toilet stall. Two years later a second challenge was raised by...

    Last week, many 2nd Vote members asked about alternative ways to make and process online payments after e-commerce giant PayPal joined the liberal misinformation campaign in North Carolina. The California based company announced that it would stand against North Carolina’s common sense protections for small business owners and religious liberty and withdrew plans for a global operations center in Charlotte in an attempt to bully the state economically.   Subsequently, our research team noticed a growing company called ProPay that provided many products for online merchants.   After looking very closely at ProPay’s record of advocacy on the issues, the company has earned...

    "The new law perpetuates discrimination and it violates the values and principles that are at the core of PayPal's mission and culture," CEO Dan Schulman wrote in a memorandum on the company's website. That's what a corporate bully looks like, folks. Conform to the demands of radical cultural militants or pay the price. "It is corporate blackmail," Lt. Gov. Dan Forest told me. But PayPal is not just a big business bully – they are also hypocrites. "PayPal does business in 25 countries where homosexual behavior is illegal, including five where the penalty is death," NC Rep. Robert Pittenger wrote...

Lt. Governor Forest posted a photo of PayPal’s global operations center, which has clearly defined, gender-specific bathrooms. The cultural Marxist crowd really are all about “Do as I say, not as I do.” Not to be outdone, NC Representative Robert Pittenger issues this statement: “PayPal does business in 25 countries where homosexual behavior is...

    The Hypocrisy of PayPal By Julio Severo PayPal has vowed to discontinue the expansion of its services in North Carolina after its governor passed a law to protect women and children against homosexual predators by not allowing biological men to use women’s restrooms and locker rooms. In answer to the PayPal boycott, on Facebook Franklin Graham, son of the legendary evangelist Billy Graham, said, “PayPal gets the hypocrite of the year award!… PayPal operates in countries including Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, and Yemen for Pete’s sake. Just last month PayPal announced they would be expanding in Cuba, a country in which...

    In an act of extraordinary hypocrisy, PayPal, which last month announced its plans to expand into Cuba, has decided not to expand into North Carolina because the state is determined to keep its public bathrooms and locker rooms safe. PayPal has now sent a loud and clear message to America: The common sense values of conservative Americans should be scorned; the destructive values of Cuban Communists, including decades of human rights abuses that continue to this hour, should be embraced.I say it’s time to send a message to PayPal. Perhaps we can communicate most clearly to them through our money?According...
