More big businesses continued a boycott on Sunday of Republican members of Congress who followed Donald Trump's demands and voted to overturn the election. JPMorgan Chase said that it will pause all contributions from its political action committee for at least the next six months, saying 'the focus of business leaders, political leaders, civic leaders right now should be on governing and getting help to those who desperately need it most right now. There will be plenty of time for campaigning later.' U.S. digital payments company Stripe is to also stop processing payments for Trump's campaign website following the riot, a company spokesperson said.

Comments:

The treason caucus? I'll ask the question again. Which is worse -- protesting a blatantly stolen presidential election or the act of stealing the presidency?

When you give money to a politician its called a bribe. "Donations" is just a nice euphemism for it. So all these big bucks corporations are going to stop bribing? Or will they just do it a little more sneakily?

The ancient bony fingers of Soros and Pelosi reach far and deep. Reminds me of Pickett’s charge at Gettysburg - Bobby Lee wanted desperately to end things in one overwhelming, over reaching act of poor judgement. It ended badly for the South. Time will tell here as well

so, that's why when people want to donate all they have to do is: write a check and/or go to a bank an buy a tellers check. we don't need some of the online pay systems and it only puts a lot of money in the pockets of the kind of people who resent and feel repulsed by our very existence. give them nothing!!!

Don’t be surprised if the demonrats start having the banks shut down and empty the accounts of people who donated to PDT. And that goes for investment accounts, 410K’s and IRA’s.

I'm a Marriott silver card holder. I'll never go to a Marriott hotel again. Ad to JPMorgan Chase - I learned of David Rockefeller's support of the Trilateral Commission and Bilderberg in the middle 70s, and have therefore had nothing to do with Chase my whole life because of that. But they have been working like termites in the woodwork for that whole time. The Rockefellers have been building and supporting this international group that we now see as 'globalists' for at least half a century. Slowly, slowly they have taken over most of the large company corporate structures and the Demonrat political party and moved towards a 'one world power structure'. They seem happy to work with the ChiComs, too. If anyone remembers reading what the control of Europe (then pretty much "the world") was like from the 1300s to the late1800s, it was a power elite, then called "kings" who ran everything. Then, on North America, some guys decided that they didn't want a king telling us what to do, and amazingly (and with the help of the French king and noblemen) were able to defeat the British troops and create a free, independent republic. That "the smart folks" (kings, and such) haven't been in charge, has rankled for almost two and a half centuries. The "wealthy elites" have been particularly unhappy with the great unwashed for most of the last 125 years, and since Woodrow Wilson have been actively working to disassemble and destroy the American republic from within . It seems that they are just about there, and at least half the people have been propagandized in HS and college to WANT to support it. Once the power structures are in place, back to serfdom we go. The United States of America as a republic is pretty much over when half of the people who live here don't want freedom and don't care about fraudulent elections. I feel really sorry for young people today. They will never know the freedoms that I enjoyed in my lifetime.

U.S. Space Command is reportedly leaving Colorado Springs for Alabama in what Gov. Jared Polis is calling a "politically motivated" move by outgoing President Trump. Polis in a statement said Trump overruled recommendations to keep Space Command in Colorado Springs, saying the president's decision was "deeply concerning." U.S. Rep. Doug Lamborn, R-Colorado Springs, called the move a "horrendous decision" and saying it will "materially damage our national security." Lamborn vowed to fight the decision and said he sent a letter to President-elect Joe Biden, asking him to reverse the move.

Seattle-based Amazon.com, Inc. has asked a federal judge to deny a request to reinstate the cloud-service account for conservative social media network Parler. The company's lawyers on Tuesday claimed Parler shrugged off police violence content on its site before and after the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. The Seattle Times reported that Parler filed a lawsuit Monday against Amazon claiming a breach of contract and antitrust violation after its account was suspended. Attorneys for Amazon said the case was not about suppressing speech but about what they called Parler’s “demonstrated unwillingness” to remove content that threatens public safety. Parler claims Amazon colluded with Twitter to “kill Parler’s business."

When “All in the Family” debuted Jan. 12, 1971, on CBS, it was exactly the TV show America needed — though America didn’t realize it at the time. Norman Lear and Bud Yorkin had taped two ABC pilots of the scrip t, both starring Carroll O’Connor and Jean Stapleton, starting in 1968. But ABC was reluctant to commit; as Lear told Variety’s Army Archerd, it was “too controversial.” Lear and Yorkin took the show to CBS, which surprisingly bought it.

I don't have a problem with arresting people who break the law. I do have a huge problem with selective prosecution and enforcement. When Black Lives Matter mobs besieged Washington D.C., attacked the White House, assaulted Secret Service members, vandalized national monuments, and set a church on fire, the Attorney General had to lean hard just to get the most basic arrests and prosecutions going. (It goes without saying that none of the rioters were fired.) And the media played defense for the rioters and feigned outrage at criminalizing "protest". By September, the DOJ had managed to charge just 300 rioters for taking part in the BLM violence nationwide.

President Trump was impeached a second time by the US House of Representatives on Wednesday in a largely party-line vote that saw a handful of Republicans join Democrats to blame the outgoing commander-in-chief for sparking last week’s Capitol siege. The measure reached 217 “yea” votes shortly after 4:20 p.m. to make Trump the only president to be impeached twice. The final vote was 232-197, with 10 Republicans crossing party lines and four Republicans not voting when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) announced around 4:35 p.m. No members of the GOP voted in 2019 to impeach Trump the first time.
