Home Depot Founder Risks Entire Company With Shock Announcement – Trump’s Doing It Anyway!

Published

on

Major retailers around the nation have become battlegrounds for political correctness, using their businesses as soapboxes to make social statements. In a time when online business has disrupted the retail market and big box stores are diminishing by the dozen, it doesn’t seem wise to polarize your customer base with a divisive stance.

Home Depot’s number one competition, Lowe’s, has proven to stay true to their core values and the American people, especially our nation’s heroes and their families. Meanwhile, their counterpart has received some pretty bad press over the past two to three years regarding an apparent disrespect for the military. Most of this seemed to occur at the store level and not a decision condoned or approved by the corporation especially since the CEO of the home improvement giant is a major Trump supporter, a fact the founder has not been shy about.

Now the man responsible for the fate of his retail business has just risked his entire company in making a sudden shock announcement.

Prior to today, when Trump was campaigning to be president, Home Depot founder Ken Langone told CNBC that if he pulls off a win, he could go down as “one of our greatest presidents ever.” It was a sentiment in which the majority of Americans proved to agree with having voted him into office. Now, we’re seeing his support for our president in an even bigger way and more importantly, Langone’s commitment to make America great again in a special way that has left military families in America in total shock.

What many American businesses, sports figures, and celebrities get routinely wrong is that they make political statements in vain to say they are against division, when they are really being an anti-American and perpetuating the problem. This often includes using their platform to publicly trash our president. Home Depot knows that while they may offend “some” people, they are promoting something better with their patriotism that we as a country can and should all get behind.

In this recent move, they are showing their appreciation in a big way for the men and women who fight for our freedom and right to make any social statement we want.

Fox Business reports:

The Home Depot Foundation, a leadership arm for the company founded by Bernie Marcus, Arthur Blank and with the help of Ken Langone, hammered down on its pledge to closing the gap among skilled laborers in America.

It announced Thursday it would commit $50 million to train 20,000 tradespeople over the next 10 years, starting with separating military members and veterans, at-risk youth and members of the Atlanta Westside community, in an effort to reduce the number of unfilled construction sector jobs in the U.S. Currently, there are 158,000 unfilled jobs in the sector, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, which projects the total employment number of construction laborers to increase 10.5% by 2026. As FOX Business reported, many six-figure jobs in the sector are going unfilled.

“We want to bring shop class back, from coast-to-coast,” Shannon Gerber, executive director of The Home Depot Foundation, said in a statement. “We’re thrilled to train 20,000 next-generation plumbers, electricians, carpenters and beyond. It’s a true honor to welcome our first classes of separating soldiers as they transition to civilian life and into successful careers in the trades.”

To those who don’t value the sacrifice of our service members or recognize that these heroes are the backbone of our country, they probably think this is somehow unfair. They are probably also the same disgruntled people who left Lowe’s in boycott and took their business to Home Depot after Lowe’s proudly pulled their ads from appearing in the commercial spots during the All American Muslim show on the TLC network. Now, disgruntled anti-American shoppers will have nowhere to go, realizing that their message isn’t appreciated anywhere.

Just as Lowe’s probably lost far fewer customers than they gained from that move, Home Depot probably won’t miss them either. Business is booming for those who choose to respect our country and the values this nation was built on, which is how it should be. The same can’t be said for companies who continue to cater to the liberal agenda.

The country needs to see more of this and likely will within the next four years under President Donald Trump’s leadership. He constantly praises our military which is how it always should be.

American businesses should look at what Home Depot does for our military members and how they treat them and follow their lead. It’s beyond time for this to be the trend as opposed to who can make a bigger anti-American social justice statement. Well done, Home Depot!

Cher’s Moment Of Lucidity: ‘CA Can’t Take Care Of Its Own Let Alone Thousands Of Illegals’

Published

on

Cher has said many outrageous comments in the past… most have to do with Trump-hatred while drinking. In a hell-has-frozen-over moment, Cher said over the weekend that Los Angeles, California, “can’t take care of its own” residents, much less newly arrived illegal and legal immigrants. Wow… did she just become a Republican? She’s right of course but hearing it from someone like Cher is mind-blowing.

She’s not alone in wondering how California, who is a flat broke sanctuary state, is able to admit and take care of thousands of illegal immigrants when they can’t even handle their own rising rates of homeless, veterans, and poverty-stricken Americans. This isn’t something you ‘tax’ your way out of.

“I Understand Helping struggling Immigrants, but MY CITY (Los Angeles) ISNT TAKING CARE OF ITS OWN. WHAT ABOUT THE 50,000+Citizens WHO LIVE ON THE STREETS.PPL WHO LIVE BELOW POVERTY LINE,& HUNGRY? If My State Can’t Take Care of Its Own(Many Are VETS)How Can it Take Care Of More,” Cher stated.

Now, let’s have some perspective here before we embrace the likes of Cher. She had this revelation after President Trump threatened to release thousands of border crossers and illegal aliens into sanctuary cities and states, like California unless the country’s asylum laws are changed. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed that the White House is considering the plan. That certainly includes Cher’s beloved Los Angeles. She’s all for open borders until it really impinges on her real estate… then she suddenly sees the light.

From Breitbart:

“In response, Democrat mayors across the country — like New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and Oakland, California Mayor Libby Schaaf — have welcomed bringing illegal aliens and border crossers to their cities.

“While left-wing mayors say they will continue to admit any and all illegal and legal immigrants, Los Angeles is home to the second largest homeless population in the country, second to only New York City. About 50,000 residents of Los Angeles are homeless and about 7.5 percent of California’s American Veteran population is homeless.

“As the city remains crippled by homelessness and skyrocketing housing costs, Los Angeles metro area is also home to the second largest illegal alien population — with nearly a million illegal aliens living in the region, according to Pew Research Center.

“Last year, economists at Deakin University found that immigration — both illegal and legal — drives up housing prices on average, with the researchers writing “we find no evidence that house prices sink as a result of immigration.”’

Cher’s latest stance is a 180-degree reversal from a September 2017 tweet, when she offered to “take a dreamer” into her home and business. “Those Who Can Must Take a DREAMER In2 Their Home & Protect Them,” she wrote. “I’m Ready 2 Do This & Others in MY BUSINESS WILL DO THE SAME. SANCTUARY.” The woman is a shameless hypocrite.

Michael Knowles savored the irony of Cher’s about-face on Twitter: “I’ll never forget where I was and what I was doing the moment Cher became a Republican.” There were many, many others struck by Cher’s new conservatism… shallow as it may be. After Cher’s freak-out over more illegal aliens coming to her sanctuary city, President Trump hit a home run: “I finally agree with Cher!”

Donald Trump Jr. nailed Cher over her words on Instagram: “Welcome to the Republican Party Cher!!! 🤣 These Hollywood liberals have some balls. They advocate for these insane leftist policies and open borders when they can stick the burden on you, on your towns, your schools, and your hospitals but if it starts to effect them all of a sudden they’re not so thrilled at the inflow of illegals. What hypocrisy. Remember Libs you wanted them. We offers to give them all to you. What’s the issue? Iits like #thegreennewdeal you want it, you think it’s great, anyone who opposes it is terrible… but then Republicans want you to vote on it and you’re outraged that they would let you vote on your incredible plan. At the vote there are no yeas. Just stop being so full of crap. Everyone knows we have a hard enough time making things work for Americans. We can’t dilute American’s benefits and all of our systems so as to care for millions from all over the world. We need immigration, but how about some immigrants who come here based on merit? What the problem with that? Maybe they won’t be dependent on government and have to vote for you?Anything other than a merit system will further greatly strain actual Americans and make their lives much harder. Stop the bullshit and let’s use some common sense for once. #BuildTheWall #maga”

It appears that Cher wants to be a true liberal only when current events don’t affect her. Previously she has called for Dems to allow Trump to have funding for the wall. Now, this. But she just can’t get past her deep-seated hatred of President Trump to come out all the way and say this insane and suicidal illegal immigration must stop. Well, maybe as Cloward and Piven works against those who instituted it, we will see the collapse of these socialist enclaves. Stars such as Cher will have to sleep in the proverbial beds they have made. That would be true justice. #WeBuildTheWall

MAJOR VICTORY: Colorado Drops 2nd Case Against Christian Baker After Continuous LGBT Harassment

Published

on

Jack Phillips is a Christian cake artist who has found himself in hot water in Colorado over the last several years. He refused to do a cake that violated his religious beliefs and that’s when the trouble started for him. The issue worked its way once to the Supreme Court where he won but was in the process of making its way to the high court once more. Colorado has now decided to drop the case in a major victory for Christians.

After facing years of constant persecution for his religious beliefs, Phillips can now rest easy and get back to doing what he loves. The LGBT activists and the Colorado Civil Rights Commission can take a hike. The Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a Christian nonprofit that advocates for religious freedom and traditional values, announced Tuesday that the Colorado Civil Rights Commission “will dismiss its most recent charges against cake artist Jack Phillips in the wake of newly discovered evidence of the state’s ongoing hostility toward religious freedom.”

In the first go-around, Phillips prevailed at the Supreme Court in Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission. He was originally targeted for refusing to do a transgender celebration cake due to his religious beliefs concerning sex and gender.

From the ADF:

“On June 26, 2017, the same day that the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to take up Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, an attorney asked cake artist Jack Phillips to create a cake designed pink on the inside and blue on the outside, which the attorney said was to celebrate a gender transition from male to female. Phillips declined the request because the custom cake would have expressed messages about sex and gender identity that conflict with his religious beliefs. Less than a month after the Supreme Court ruled for Phillips in his first case, the state surprised him by finding probable cause to believe that Colorado law requires him to create the requested gender-transition cake.”

In response to renewed harassment against Phillips, the ADF filed Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Elenis:

“We’re pleased that the state will be dismissing its case against Jack,” said ADF attorney Kristen Waggoner, who represented Phillips in Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission in the first precedent-setting case. “This is the second time the state has launched a failed effort to prosecute him. While it finally appears to be getting the message that its anti-religious hostility has no place in our country, the state’s decision to target Jack has cost him more than six-and-a-half years of his life, forcing him to spend that time tied up in legal proceedings.”

“Jack’s victory is great news for everyone. Tolerance and respect for good-faith differences of opinion are essential in a diverse society like ours. They enable us to peacefully coexist with each other. But the state’s demonstrated and ongoing hostility toward Jack because of his beliefs is undeniable,” noted Waggoner.”

This has been a hot topic in conservative and Christian politics. Daily Wire writer and podcast host Matt Walsh rightfully torched “vengeful bullies of the LGBT lobby” for continuously targeting Phillips.

“This is straightforward persecution,” stated Walsh. “This is a government agency seeking to destroy a private citizen for his personal beliefs. The bureaucrats behind this campaign have now officially forfeited the claim that they are really seeking equality or tolerance or whatever. They know, like we all do, that Phillips was railroaded here. There aren’t even any hurt feelings for them to worry about. Scardina’s feelings weren’t hurt. He got exactly what he wanted, which was to not get what he asked for. He’s a conniving, scheming fraud. And so are the despots in the commission. No matter your ideological leanings, you should be outraged about this.”

Walsh is absolutely right here. Constitutional rights apply to all Americans including Christians. That Colorado commission should be disbanded and reformed after persecuting Phillips the way they did. They tried to bully a Christian into violating his faith… something they would never do to other religions. Today is a great victory for those of the Christian faith in Colorado and the righting of an egregious wrong.
