MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell revealed Monday that retail stores Bed Bath & Beyond and Kohl's will stop selling his products on account of his continued support of conspiracy theories centered on false allegations of election fraud. Lindell, whose company is based in Minneapolis, made the announcement during an interview with conservative commentator Brian Glenn on Monday night. 'Just got off the phone with Bed Bath & Beyond. They’re dropping My Pillow. Just got off the phone not five minutes ago. Kohl’s, all these different places,' Lindell said during the interview.

I don’t know, sounds to me like it’s time to direct-order a My Pillow. We could all use a better night’s sleep.

First of all, election fraud is not a lie. The media is hyping an honest election until everyone believes it and corporations are following the trend because they're run by demonrats.

I ditched Kohl's when their CEO sent me an e mail about America's "long history of systemic racism that continues to plague our nation today." Bed Bath & Beyond is overpriced with middling customer service.

"...widely discredited conspiracy theories regarding election fraud" Discredited where and when? No court would hear the evidence. Hundreds of people have given testimony to eye-witnessing voter fraud before their eyes. Mail-in ballots sent after the deadline. Thousands of votes for President Trump disappearing in the middle of the night, and showing up for biden. He couldn't even get 10 people to show up for his rallies. Never been to one of these stores, and certainly won't now. "...widely discredited conspiracy theories" These liars are something else. Discredited kind of like Pizzagate was discredited. The New York Slimes said so, so it was discredited, though nobody ever investigated.

O.K. this totally stinks. I have been buying clothes at Kohl's for some time now since they fit me. I also buy at Christopher and Banks since they fit me very well. Yesterday, I found out that C & B store in my home town is closing. I guess I'll have to try Belk's.

The corporate gestapo strikes again. Two more companies that I will boycott. These corporations have lost all concept of free speech. Jumping on the banning bandwagon like BB&B and Kohl’s have done, is just stupid. Is it really that important to be included in the cool kids club of fascists? I hope millions will shop elsewhere.

Mike missed a huge photo op...he should've been right there at the Capitol personally handing out his pillows to the National Guard troops who were forced to sleep on the floor. He may now have to stand on the border and hand out his pillows to the Guatemalian caravan instead. One way to attack the Demos is to beat them at their own game. /s

Dominion is threatening to sue everybody . So far they haven't filled anything. The threat is bandied around hoping to get people to back down. I think Powell, Wood and Mike Lindell will not back down. Dominion is trying to run out the clock on provable election fraud on their part. The courts and state governments are so thoroughly corrupt they might pull it off.

Don't shop at either, so cheers to their demise. I'm glad these people are letting US know where they stand and what they think of US. Way to kill your business.

We've entered a new era in our nation, where private companies are encouraged to commit economic and social terrorism against individuals and other companies. This is promoted by people in power and also committed by the same people in power as well as these private companies. It is a sad day when the American people are no longer treated equally under the law and are singled out for Destruction because of their political views. God help us all.

The Kohls family (from Milwaukee) are staunch Democrats. Herb Kohl used to be a RAT Senator from Wisconsin. I remember when Kohls was the big grocery chain in Milwaukee; they started Department stores and dumped the grocery business.

I share the sentiments of all of the above people who posted. There are lots of alternatives to Amazon but you have to get a little more specialized. I like to play golf and buy a lot of my equipment & balls factory direct. Or from online golf retailers. Amazon charges 10 to 13% most Sporting Goods, so by bypassing them I put a little bit of money back into the pocket of companies I support. And sometimes buying Factory Direct is actually cheaper. Just FYI

Dominion is a deep dark mystery, and we can't have them as any part of a transparent system that is fair and is seen to be fair. They are now suing everyone who said they were internet-connected to the world. Personally I wonder whether they fostered suspicion in a kind of Witness for the Prosecution defense - they fostered suspicion in some cases where they could at leisure defend themselves, so as to discredit any objections. To me the bottom line is, their operations are obscure enough to facilitate such a stunt. All touch screens must go. Simply too obscure. Nobody really knows what they are doing. That is the accusation, and their lawsuits now prove how true it is. It is accusation enough. They must go.

I don’t know about Kohl’s - rarely shop there and one of ours, built to suit at very large cost, folded within a year or so. Bed, Bath & Beyond is on its last legs. Have closed many stores. They stopped giving good service in the store, stopped honoring “lifetime” guarantees on products they sell, stopped carrying those “seen on TV products”, which were a surprisingly big draw. I bought my last coffeemaker at Best Buy and they honored a BB&B 20% off coupon as part of their price match policy. And their coffeemaker was lower price to start with and in the black that I wanted.

Globalism strikes again, and Biden is rushing in to cut America down to size. 78 Million Americans gave President Donald Trump a landslide victory, but the FIX was in. Americans were robbed of our right to choose our own president, and now high profile patriots who won't shut up about what was done to us are under attack. Remember the word "FIX" because it has another disgusting application, apart from rigging an election to favor an elderly man in ovious cognitive decline. When you hear extremist Dems like AOC call for "deprogramming" conservatives, it's really a plan to "fix" Americans who disagree with Democrats, using government funded "reprogramming" or "re-education' camps. Shame on the disloyal Republicans who knowingly dragged our country into hell.

Second post, sorry. BB&B and Kohl's are lying, using Lindell's support of President Trump as a weak excuse. The fact is, they can't efficiently sell MyPillow products because they overcharge for them, and anyone can get the same merchandise directly from MyPillow at a better price. This is just pretentious virtue signaling on their part.

Both of these companies are not worth our spit to step foot into. Like Target, they are going to cave fast to the immorality of the world rather than stand strong with the majority who aren't of this world. Like has been said in other articles, legal Discovery is gonna be a karma you know what if Dominion wants to go there. They are just cocky enough to believe that they aren't going to get punished for their part in the coup we all witnessed. Seems to me there is a grocery store chain we also need to boycott as well, thanks to the phony republican in congress who voted for impeachment. Meijer I believe is the name of the chain. In these small ways, we can start letting them understand that we aren't going to stand for that business as usual any more.

Neither Kohl’s or BB&B as well as WalMart, Target, Amazon, etc., have a problem selling cheap Chinese rubbish made with slave labor but they won’t sell MyPillow because it’s owner thinks Donald Trump won the last election? It is a moral duty for Conservatives not to buy at those stores and to shop for items made in free countries. However. some products may say “Made in Italy”, for instance, but the labor is from China, located in Italy. Names traditionally associated with Western countries like Brio and Lego are also now made in China. If Democrats can shame Trump supporters then we should start to shame people with Nike sneakers and clothing, Apple products; anything made in China. I have no idea how long this could take to impact companies but it’s worth a try.

The local Kohl’s near my job is like the K-Mart. Dirty with low light and crappy customer service. Half of the people go there to return the stuff they got off of Amazon. I did once and promptly left. The last time I went to Bed Bath and Beyond was years ago to get a gift for a friends baby shower 10 years ago. I haven’t been back since. Brick and mortar stores are fading and these two just shot themselves in the foot 74 million times.

Lincoln Project Sex Scandal Which Fails

Posted by OhioNick 2/1/2021 3:52:48 AM Post Reply
How was the media going to handle the sex scandal at the Lincoln Project, which had worked to elect Joe Biden and Democrats? Obviously by insisting that they're Republicans. The New York Times went from touting Lincoln Project ads in the election to pretending that they're Republicans. And so the Times produced an article about the Lincoln Project which never mentions the word, "Biden" or "Democrats". [SNIP] The Times describes the Lincoln Project as anti-Trump. But that's that. No mention of which party they were backing. That's a little like talking about the World Series while only mentioning the other team.

Bitterly cold winter conditions are setting in. And the coronavirus is spreading among the National Guard troops occupying D.C. as part of Biden's political theater. Many Republican governors stepped up to end the occupation when troops were forced to sleep in parking garages because they had offended a Democrat staffer. But Democrat governors are doubling down on the authoritarian occupation of D.C. and are deploying more soldiers to intimidate Americans.

A West Virginia news publisher has filed an antitrust suit against Google and Facebook, who together receive roughly half of all digital ad dollars in the U.S. and are facing antitrust charges from federal and state authorities. The company, HD Media, owns several papers in the state, including the Herald-Dispatch in Huntington and the Charleston Gazette-Mail. HD Media claims Google has so monopolized the online ad market that 'it threatens the extinction of local newspapers across the country.' The suit also alleges that Google and Facebook conspired to further their dominance with a secret agreement, referring to a suit filed by 10 Republican attorneys general in December.

Acclaimed historians are hitting out at a chairman in charge of renaming 44 San Francisco schools after it was revealed that he refused to consult with them during the decision-making process and his research was based on information he found on Wikipedia. Earlier this week, the San Francisco Board of Education voted 6-1 to strip 44 public schools of their current monikers because they honor 'racist' figures from American history. Schools named after politicians including George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln are now set to be rebranded in the coming months.

This is a template for what could have been accomplished. It hopefully will be restarted under the next Republican administration.

When the Trump administration began relocating BLM offices to Colorado to be close to where the people and land they control actually live, the hacks headed for the exit. Good. Anyone who wants to run the lives of people in Colorado, but doesn't want to live there should quit.

In their communiques, Bridges made clear that his allegiance was to Islam and jihad, not America and its soldiers.

Poland’s top human rights official denounced the further restriction of what was already one of the most restrictive abortion laws in Europe, calling it a tragedy for women which condemns them “to torture.”

One of the big sea changes in the Trump administration for conservative media came at White House press conferences. President Trump and his people opened up the press conferences from the narrow confines of the White House Correspondents Association and the mainstream media to a range of conservative media. That infuriated the media and the Biden White House is predictably signaling that will come to an end. Democrats and their media define "disinformation" as anything they disagree with. Or anything Republicans say.

President Joe Biden’s American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter reportedly manages a pro-Trump Facebook group that provides sign language accompaniments to right-wing videos. ASL interpreter Heather Mewshaw was introduced by press secretary Jen Psaki as “today’s interpreter, Heather” on Monday, as the administration announced it would be adding a sign language interpreter to its daily press briefings. However, on Wednesday, Time magazine reported that Ms Mewshaw manages the Hands of Liberty Facebook page, which has featured ASL interpreters providing sign language accompaniments to videos featuring former President Donald Trump and his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani.

Bitterly cold winter conditions are setting in. And the coronavirus is spreading among the National Guard troops occupying D.C. as part of Biden's political theater. Many Republican governors stepped up to end the occupation when troops were forced to sleep in parking garages because they had offended a Democrat staffer. But Democrat governors are doubling down on the authoritarian occupation of D.C. and are deploying more soldiers to intimidate Americans.

New York Times columnist Charles M. Blow is calling for black Americans to launch a 'reverse Great Migration' and move back to the South to create racial majorities in the states their ancestors fled two centuries ago. Blow presents his provocative proposal in his new book 'The Devil You Know: A Black Power Manifesto', which hit bookstores last week.(Snip) Looking back through a modern lens, Blow asserts that 'the initial benefits of the Great Migration have given way, in many ways, to a stinging failure', citing the 'perpetual oppression' wrought by housing discrimination, police brutality, white nationalism and other forces.

A portion of Highway 1 near Big Sur, Calif., collapsed this week and fell into the Pacific Ocean after heavy rains caused a “debris flow” of trees, boulders, water and mud, leaving behind a 150-foot-wide gap. Workers from the California Department of Transportation had been assessing the section of the road near Rat Creek, about 20 miles by highway from Big Sur, on Thursday when they discovered the debris on the road, the department said. The department entered into an emergency contract that evening with a construction company to repair the road, but on Friday morning, workers discovered that both lanes had fallen into the ocean below.

Rep. Adam Kinzinger on Sunday offered a glimpse of what it’s like being one of the 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump: Friends and family turned against him, and he was told he’s “possessed by the devil.” “Look it’s really difficult. I mean, all of a sudden imagine everybody that supported you, or so it seems that way, your friends, your family, has turned against you. They think you're selling out,” the Illinois congressman said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “I've gotten a letter, a certified letter, twice from the same people, disowning me and claiming I'm possessed by the devil.”

There's nothing illegal or unethical about what IMG Models did. However, the New York–based modeling agency that has some of the biggest names on its roster suddenly discovered a hidden Cinderella in our midst: Ella Emhoff, who is Kamala Harris's 22-year-old stepdaughter. The problem with this amazing discovery is that Emhoff is entirely ordinary and seems somewhat scary. It's patently clear that IMG is capitalizing on her stepmother's position, and that's just sleazy. Over the years, IMG has represented people such as Lauren Hutton, Christie Brinkley, the Hadid sisters, and Karlie Kloss — names so big and women so beautiful by any standard that even I recognize them

March weather, according to folklore, comes in like a lion and out like a lamb, although late March often has its share of nasty winter storms where I live. Donald Trump’s presidency has followed a similar pattern. (snip) Does Trump still have a trump card to play? (snip) It’s not in his nature to lose, especially in such fashion, exiting the biggest stage in the world like a lamb. He has hinted at things to come, as when he mentioned in passing while golfing, “we haven’t finished yet.” I hold out hope, although dwindling, as without hope there is nothing.
