Conservative Group’s Push Back Against the Corporate Wokeism Threatening Our Liberty

The ACU is protecting Americans’ liberty against corporate wokeism with the establishment of The Center To Protect Voters and Their Voices

I will admit it–I am a big fan of the American Conservative Union (ACU). Not only because they run my favorite political event every year—CPAC, but because they are usually the first to recognize and act against the approaching threats to our freedoms. Their latest action is typical of the way they fight for our liberty. Anyone who has followed the news since Georgia passed their election integrity law, knows how major corporations have taken steps based on the false cancel culture claims about the bill. ACU protecting liberty.

This isn’t the first time major corporations have used their resources to skew the political discourse toward policies that attack Americans’ freedoms nor will it be the last time. Recognizing those gathering anti-liberty clouds the ACU announced the establishment of The Center To Protect Voters and Their Voices.

On behalf of more than 100 million Americans, The American Conservative Union (ACU) is taking a stand against the increasingly divisive and partisan activism by public corporations and organizations that are caving to “woke” pressure. We will not stand by as half the country gets silenced, canceled, or shamed for resisting this pressure and choosing instead to value beliefs and traditions that are the bedrock of the greatest nation on earth.

ACU, America’s original conservative grassroots organization, has partnered with corporations and other center-right groups since 1964 to fight higher taxes, burdensome regulations and activist judges. We have worked alongside the business community to preserve free markets by limiting the government’s role in the private sector so for-profit businesses could flourish, provide jobs, and meet their primary goal of creating value for their shareholders.

But we are in a dangerous time today.

The unprecedented level of anti-Americanism, combined with radical leftist appeasement, makes it necessary for us to tell these activist corporations that their woke politics risk permanently severing the long-standing coalition for limited government between corporations and conservative activists. Some of today’s most prominent businesses that succumb to pressure from the elite media or radical political organizations are the very same ones that leaned on conservatives to help fight socialism in the past.

We have no issue with corporate leaders expressing their positions on cultural questions, but we draw the line when they abuse their power, attack the values of their customers and employees, and advocate for policies that weaken America. Make no mistake, corporations and their leaders should not disrespect the diverse views of their customers and employees by bowing down to the peer pressure from celebrities, prominent business associations, and the radical Left.

We have moved into dangerous territory where highly profitable companies can join forces to inject themselves into whatever social issue of the day is politically expedient, regardless of the impact on everyday Americans. Corporations have taken shortcuts and disingenuously accused election reformers of voter suppression and racism. But not only have they attacked voting rights and spread misinformation on the voting laws, they are also complicit in an unscientific and harmful assault on gender, unborn life, immigration, and energy policy, to name a few. When did we become a country where respectful disagreement is forbidden?

They have also maligned and silenced large percentages of their own customers and employees who feel differently. These individuals can no longer speak up to express their political, social or religious views because they are now at risk of being fired or publicly shamed.

We will be a voice for those who feel so powerless that they fear the consequences of speaking up.

We will expose the hypocrisy of corporate leaders who are publicly embracing and funding the Left while running companies that would cease to exist if the full extent of the Democrat’s leftist economic policies were implemented. We will demand that leaders of these corporations stop further dividing America by unquestioningly siding with the Left on every cultural or political dispute. Our goal is to encourage the CEOs and Directors of these companies to go back to running their businesses.

We will first demand meetings with CEO’s and board members of egregious corporations and other woke enterprises. If these companies rebuff us, they will suffer the consequences of losing the political support of millions who would gladly advocate for the policies that ensure their profitability. If these companies continue down this dangerous road of separating themselves from their advocates, we will take additional steps to highlight their support of woke politics.

This is a fight we never expected to have to wage against entities that usually have been allies in economic battles, but we will wage it with all of our resources and talents.

Thank you ACU, I will support you in this fight.ACU protecting liberty.

Russia Rebukes USA with Childish, Gibberish Response on Sanctions

The Kremlin isn’t quite as sharp as it used to be.

Russia

The world fears Russia, this much is ostensibly true, but is it for the right reasons?

Sure, the wannabe superpower does own a rather large arsenal of nuclear weapons.  And Vladimir Putin certainly carries himself with all of the tact of a frat boy with a jacked up truck who’s very obviously compensating for something. But the Kremlin’s negotiating tactics have lately been closer to North Korea’s pedantic missile-waving contests than any chess-like, super-brain maneuvering. In fact, the military buildup near Ukraine and this prolonged “negotiation” about it feels rather beneath the Kremlin, doesn’t it?

Take, for instance, the latest rebuke from the Russian government on the US threat of sanctioning Vladimir Putin personally.

Russia on Wednesday dismissed the latest warning from President Joe Biden, who said the previous day that the U.S. could seek to sanction President Vladimir Putin personally if he sends forces across the border to invade Ukraine. Putin’s spokesman said any such sanctions would be “destructive,” but not “painful” because, according to the Kremlin press secretary, Russia’s senior leaders don’t hold overseas bank accounts or assets.

Speaking with reporters on Tuesday, President Biden said that if Putin were to send the roughly 100,000 troops he’s massed along Ukraine’s borders into the U.S.-allied country, “it would be the largest invasion since World War II. It would change the world.”

Asked if his administration would sanction Putin personally, Mr. Biden replied: “Yes… I would see that.”

The Russian response was pure gibberish, and gave the impression of a young child smashing words together in an attempt to sound smart.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov delivered the rebuttal to the latest warning from Washington on Wednesday. He was quoted by Russian state news agency RIA Novosti as attributing the notion of sanctions against Putin or other Russian leaders to “U.S. congressmen and senators who are not entirely familiar with this topic,” and who would have been wise to first consult “those who are professionally engaged in Russia.”

He said it had “long been prohibited for representatives of senior leadership and officials” to hold foreign assets. “Therefore, of course, such a formulation of the question is absolutely not painful for any one of the representatives of the top management.”

This certainly isn’t the sort of cunning behavior that the world seems to expect from Russia, and it begs the question:  Is this Ukraine nonsense nothing but a big bluff from the belligerent mind of Putin?

Americans Groan as SCOTUS Opening Invites Further Dysfunction

Any nomination by Biden is sure to kick off a firestorm of controversy, grinding the gears of government to a halt.

Published

The sheer lack of progress that our political machine has made over the course of the last year is laughable.  The bipartisan bickering and nitpicking has gotten to an abominable point here in the United States, allowing our public servants to cash in on their elected positions while the American people suffer mightily.

It hasn’t been this bad in years, maybe decades, and the latest news out of the Supreme Court could make things even less manageable on Capitol Hill.

Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer plans to retire, setting up a seismic confirmation battle at the start of a midterm election year as President Joe Biden tries to find his footing with his agenda stalled and Democrats divided in Congress.

Breyer, 83, is expected to stay on until the end of the court term and until a replacement is confirmed, a well-placed source familiar with the matter told CNN.

He informed Biden of his plans last week and will formally announce his retirement at a White House event with the President as early as Thursday, two sources told CNN.

The news is sure to set off a firestorm of political posturing, with the GOP and Democratic Party likely to lock horns over whomever the Biden administration chooses to nominate.

Further more, some activists legislators on the left may now feel emboldened enough to make life difficult for the President should his choice not be radical enough.
