These companies still give money to lawmakers who voted to overturn Biden’s election … for Trump

They still love me…

After a mob of Trump supporters stormed the US Capitol on January 6 to try and prevent Congress from certifying Biden’s win, many top US companies scrambled to cut ties with the 147 GOP lawmakers who voted against the results…

Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, founder of Yale’s Chief Executive Leadership Institute, told Axios in March the companies that halted political donations are unlikely to lift this ban any time soon. However, recent Federal Election Commission filings show that some companies are still giving to these lawmakers…

Here are the companies that have still been funding (some or all of) these 147 objectors, according to Federal Election Commission data up to March 31:

Koch Industries
National Association of Realtors
Jones Walker
Cubic Corporation
LKQ Corporation
Sierra Nevada Corporation

Please read the article. It explains some of the ways many corporations and companies still get around the boycott of these hypocrite politicians … without handing the money directly over to them

Those who lie(d) for Trump should be held accountable

Don’t let the chronic liars cash in on their dishonesty. Press secretaries like Joe Lockhart, Ari Fleischer and Jay Carney, who left the White House with their reputations in various stages of intact, made millions taking their skills — and credibility — to corporate America. Trump’s liars don’t merit that same golden parachute. Let it be known to the business world: Hire any of Trump’s fellow fabulists above, and Forbes will assume that everything your company or firm talks about is a lie. We’re going to scrutinize, double-check, investigate with the same skepticism we’d approach a Trump tweet. Want to ensure the world’s biggest business media brand approaches you as a potential funnel of disinformation? Then hire away.

I second that emotion!

El Trumpo continues to pardon crooks and his other peers

“If you once forfeit the confidence of your fellow citizens, you can never regain their respect and esteem. It is true that you may fool all of the people some of the time; you can even fool some of the people all of the time; but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time.”

Abraham Lincoln, September 8, 1854.

In his first television interview since being pardoned by President Trump, longtime Republican consultant Roger Stone…praised the president as the greatest since Abraham Lincoln.

Yes, the Republican Party, nowadays, is controlled by crooks, frauds and pimps who ignore history, reality and truth…all of the time.

Trump Pandemic shatters records for new cases, daily death rate

It was another devastating day for the coronavirus pandemic in the US yesterday, with the total number of coronavirus cases passing 17m, the highest in the world by far. The US recorded almost a quarter of a million new coronavirus infections and more than 3,600 deaths yesterday alone. Thursday’s unemployment report also found that new jobless claims reached 885,000 last week, the highest weekly figure since September. In Los Angeles, two people are dying of Covid-19 every hour, as the hospitals system creaks under the weight of the pandemic.

However, there is some respite on the horizon. An advisory committee for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recommended that the agency authorise a second coronavirus vaccine, developed by Moderna and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. The Moderna vaccine was found to be more than 94% effective at preventing Covid-19 in a trial of more than 30,000 participants…

[Disclaimer: My retirement investment account holds shares in Moderna.]

Twitter will remove tweets spreading harmful misinformation about the Covid-19 vaccine, the company has announced, and will begin to label tweets that push conspiracy theories from next year.

Don’t delude yourself. Trump and his acolytes will declare a victory for their ignorant and racist policies. This confrontation with fascist politics ain’t going away. And the next rightwing candidate that will lead the American public down the road to obedience and death may be smarter than Trump. It ain’t that difficult a requirement.
