ACU Calls on Delta Airlines to Correct Their Lies About Georgia Voter ID law

Continuing its efforts to protect our liberty from the threats of woke corporations the ACU sent a letter to the Delta over their Georgia lies

Published

Since Georgia passed their election integrity law, anyone who has followed the news knows how major corporations have taken steps based on the false cancel culture claims about the bill. A week ago, we learned that the American Conservative Union (ACU) announced the establishment of The Center To Protect Voters and Their Voices. This ACU unit is designed to prevent woke corporations from using their resources to skew the political discourse toward policies that attack Americans’ freedoms as they did in Georgia and previously in other states. Delta Georgia lies

Now the ACU is expanding its fight to protect the rights of Americans. They wrote the CEO of Delta Airlines and published online, a letter calling on Delta Airlines, Inc. to correct their inaccurate description Of Georgia’s voter ID law. Or, as I call it, their lies.

Here’s the letter:

Chief Executive Officer, Delta Air Lines Inc.

Dear Mr. Bastian,

As one of the nation’s largest airlines, Delta touches the lives of hundreds of millions of people throughout the freedom-loving world. Many of these are Americans who value free enterprise, common sense and fairness. Overseas, they are advocates for democracy who look to the United States for guidance as they strive to replicate our ability to respect individual sovereignty and liberty. On behalf of all these people, the American Conservative Union (ACU) urges you to correct your misleading and damaging statements about the Georgia voting law, SB 202, and we ask for a meeting to discuss our concerns with your embrace of unAmerican political forces.

In the past, Delta has needed the support of conservative organizations, like ACU, to pursue sound policies that sustain Delta’s business. When your interests align with conservative values, we have been able to work together. For example, many conservative groups helped Delta with the Open Skies Agreement, the overreach of the Export-Import Bank, and other and various tax issues and foreign subsidies that put your airline at a competitive disadvantage. You have needed help from everyday Americans, and we have helped rally them.

But recently you have turned your back on conservatives on the issue of state election laws to score points with radical Leftists, all while claiming to be non-partisan.

The conflicting statements you made about Georgia’s new voting reform—a reform bill in which Delta “engaged extensively with state elected officials in both parties”—are completely unacceptable to fair-minded people who genuinely seek a transparent and secure election process. Your first public statement acknowledged that the new bill “expands weekend voting, codifies Sunday voting and protects a voter’s ability to cast an absentee ballot without providing a reason. For the first time, drop boxes have also been authorized for all counties statewide and poll workers will be allowed to work across county lines.

Five days later, you took a 180° turn and issued another statement that not only undermined your own credibility but also attacked the many employees and customers of Delta who have already suffered the consequences of two flawed Georgia elections. You have added to harmful divisions in this country when you falsely claimed that the voting reform discriminates against Black voters and that the rationale behind this reform is based on a lie. Your implication that there was no widespread voter fraud in Georgia in the 2020 election is in direct conflict with reality. There were suitcases of ballots under tables, an unlawful consent decree, and illegal and unsecured drop boxes, just to name a few problems. You literally accused at least half of your employees and customers of being liars and racists when all they want is to ensure honest elections and to follow basic verification protocols that Delta follows for matters like visits to your offices, boarding planes, or participating in a shareholder meeting.

Unless you correct your recent statements and reverse course, it will be clear that you are turning your back on hard-working Americans to curry favor with the current Democratic leadership that sits in Washington today and seeks to destroy America with virtually every illogical proposition it puts forth. We may understand this political calculus, but we do not forgive it. And neither will your employees and customers who supported Republican candidates in 2020 and will do so again in 2022, likely in even larger numbers.

ACU has always stood for equal dignity and respect of every individual regardless of their race or gender. We have always defended the United States Constitution, the greatest document ever created to establish government and provide the foundation for a strong economy. Without the freedoms that are protected in America, Delta might never even have come into being.

We formally request a meeting with you, ask that you correct your latest statement, and ask that you return to the business of running a first-class airline.

If you cannot afford us the same respect you show to radical Left groups, we will have to conclude that you and Delta no longer wish to constructively work with your employees and customers who support free and fair elections.

–The American Conservative Union

So what’s the answer, Mr. Bastian? Are you going to correct your lies? The ACU. indeed, all Americans are ready when you are.

DirecTV Removes Conservative News Network in Blow to Free Speech

The move is just the latest incident in which conservative bandwidth has been arbitrarily limited, and it certainly won’t be the last. 

Published

on

In our nation, we’ve long held the belief that the diversity of opinion is a tool for sharpening our abilities and ingenuity.  The freedom to speak as you want is the best way to keep the evil among us from snatching up the entirety of the American Dream for themselves, and it levels the playing field among the masses.

That it why the latest move from DirecTV is so egregious.

The largest satellite provider in the United States said late Friday it will drop One America News, a move that could financially cripple the rightwing TV network known for fueling conspiracy theories about the 2020 election.

The announcement by DirecTV, which is 70% owned by AT&T, comes three months after a Reuters investigation revealed that OAN’s founder testified that AT&T inspired him to create the network. Court testimony also showed that OAN receives nearly all of its revenue from DirecTV.

The sudden change comes after years of cooperation.

DirecTV, with approximately 15 million subscribers, is by far OAN’s largest carrier. According to testimony by OAN’s accountant reviewed by Reuters, DirecTV provided 90% of the conservative network’s revenue.

“We informed Herring Networks that, following a routine internal review, we do not plan to enter into a new contract when our current agreement expires,” DirecTV said in a statement.

The OAN-DirecTV contract is set to expire in the next several months. DirecTV began airing OAN in April 2017, a deal that began shortly after OAN and AT&T settled a lawsuit over alleged oral promises during negotiations.

The move is just the latest incident in which conservative bandwidth has been arbitrarily limited, and it certainly won’t be the last.

My Pillow CEO Blackballed by Banking Institutions Over ‘Reputation Risk’

The left is taking their war on conservatism to absurd new lengths.

Published

on

As the 2022 midterm election remains just over the horizon, casting an already dark cloud over the coming months, there has been a concerted effort among those on the left side of the aisle to exploit the events of January 6th, 2021 for political gain.  And, as Democrats continue to fear for the worst in 2022, they are casting an ever wider net.

The tactic is essentially spray and pray:  Throw subpoenas and accusations all over the place, and then beg the heavens above that something sticks.

This is making life very difficult for those who are, or were once, associated with Donald Trump.  This includes the CEO of the My Pillow corporation, Mike Lindell.

During a Friday episode of right-wing political strategist Steve Bannon’s War Room podcast, Lindell claimed that Heartland Financial and Minnesota Bank and Trust are attempting to “de-bank” him over concerns that they could face fallout related to having him as a client. During the podcast, Bannon and Lindell played an audio recording that they said was a call with a bank official.

“Just because of our organization saying, ‘Well, why are we connected with somebody that could be in the news.’ And, not that the FBI is even sniffing and looking, but what if somebody came in and said, ‘You know what, we are gonna subpoena all his account records…and then also we make the news,'” the person in the recording said. “So it’s more of a reputation risk.”

Lindell went on to tell Bannon that the financial institutions want him to shutter his accounts within 30 days. But the pro-Trump businessman insisted that he is refusing to comply.

“I said, ‘I am not being part of this. I’m not leaving. So you’re going to have to throw me out of your bank,'” he said. During the segment, Bannon put the phone numbers and contact information of top officials at the institutions onscreen—urging supporters to call and complain.

And, finally…

“Where does it end everybody? Where does it end?” Lindell asked, suggesting that he is being persecuted for his controversial activism. He contended that the banks’ decision was related to his refusal to comply with the House select committee investigating the January 6, 2021 pro-Trump attack against the U.S. Capitol.

As the January 6th committee grows bolder and brasher, we should perhaps expect more examples of such political discrimination to make headlines.
