Toyota Motor Corp (7203.T) said on Thursday its political action committee will halt donations to U.S. members of Congress who voted against President Joe Biden's election certification in January. The largest Japanese automaker has faced harsh criticism for donations to some lawmakers - members of then-President Donald Trump's Republican Party - who voted against certification of Biden's win in some U.S. states.


Another "Lincoln Project" production. It's time for a review of "conservative principles". One reason conservatives are constantly bashed it that there are neither response nor repercussions in return. This is politics, not ideology. The days of Reagan's "Eleventh Commandment" are long past. It's not the the Dems/Commies who are the enemy.

Did Toyota suspend their donations to Democrat reps who disputed the 2000 Bush-Gore election? I don't think so. Isn't Toyota a Japanese company? Who appointed them the arbiter of election fraud/manipulation in the USA? My next car will NOT be a Toyota.

We have purchased 4 Toyotas -- all new -- in the last couple of decades. My husband still drives him 2013 Highlander and loves it. But I just sent them an e-mail informing them that we will never do business with them again. And it's no idle threat -- we will not do business with them again!!! They need to hear from us loud and clear!!!

My wife has owned two Toyotas and has really liked them. I agree with others here about the politics, but what steered me away from Toyota was its ersatz new Toyota Supra. It's just a BMW Z chassis with the badging changed out. What malarkey. Buying Japanese but getting German instead. Must be a joke in there somewhere.

A New York grand jury has indicted the Trump Organization and its chief financial officer with tax-related crimes that will be made public Thursday in court, people familiar with the matter said, marking the first criminal charges against the former president’s company since prosecutors began investigating it three years ago. The charges against the company and longtime CFO Allen Weisselberg are a blow to former President Donald Trump, who has fended off multiple criminal and civil probes during and after his presidency. But the initial charges won’t implicate Mr. Trump himself, his lawyer said...

"Paul Ryan has been a curse to the Republican Party," Trump said as part of a lengthy statement issued Friday by the former president. "He has no clue as to what needs to be done for our Country, was a weak and ineffective leader, and spends all of his time fighting Republicans as opposed to Democrats who are destroying our Country."

Acknowledging that "conservatives find ourselves at a crossroads," former House Speaker Paul Ryan sought to map out a vision for the Republican Party in the post-Donald Trump era. In an address Thursday night at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in California, Ryan credited Trump for bringing "many new voters into our party" but said Republicans have to face a reality. "If the conservative cause depends on the populist appeal of one personality, or of second-rate imitations, then we're not going anywhere," Ryan said.

The new guidelines discard the 14-day limit on human embryo experiments in favor of no limits whatsoever, and they allow virtually unrestricted manufacture of human-animal chimeras of any type, as well as creation of genetically altered human embryos and lab constructed human embryo “models.” Very little is left in the category of “currently not permitted.”
