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!

Kate Hudson: I’m Raising My Daughter ‘Genderless,’ Doesn’t Know What She’s Going To Identify As
It seems child abuse is running rampant in America today.
Actress Kate Hudson revealed last week that she’s raising her daughter with a “genderless” approach, since she’s unsure what gender she’ll “identify” as in the future.
She was asked if raising a baby girl will change her parenting approach from how she’s raising her two boys, Hudson told AOL.com, “It doesn’t really change my approach, but there’s definitely a difference. I think you just raise your kids individually regardless – like a genderless approach.
“We still don’t know what she’s going to identify as. I will say that, right now, she is incredibly feminine in her energy, her sounds and her way,” she continued. It’s very different from the boys, and it’s really fun to actually want to buy kids’ clothes.”
Hudson announced the arrival of her daughter in October. “She’s here,” Hudson posted on Instagram.
“We have decided to name our daughter Rani (pronounced Ronnie) after her grandfather, Ron Fujikawa,” explained the Fabletics founder. “Ron was the most special man who we all miss dearly. To name her after him is an honor.”
“Everyone is doing well and happy as can be,” she added. “Our family thanks you for all the love and blessings that have been sent our way and we send ours right back.”

She ain’t the only insane celebrity doing this..many more like her unfortunately. Amazing how this child abuse is accepted. Quite disturbing.
Back in December 2017, singer Pink raved to ET Online about taking a “gender neutral” approach to parenting her daughter Willow and son Jameson; Willow was 11 at the time of the interview and Jameson was 11 months old.
“I was in a school and the bathroom outside the kindergarten said, ‘Gender Neutral – anybody,’ and it was a drawing of many different shapes,” the 38-year-old singer recalls. “I took a picture of it and I wrote, ‘Progress.’ I thought that was awesome. I love that kids are having this conversation.”
Pink continues on, telling the outlet she and Willow have already had plenty of their own conversations on gender neutrality. In fact, Pink says she sees herself as a pre-teen boy.
“I do bake sales and lemonade stands. I take my kid to school and try to get there on time,” she says. “I’m a fucking grown up now, it’s so weird. I’m still a 12-year-old boy.”
But a “12-year-old boy” who has serious chats with Willow, who’s already thinking ahead to her future.
“Last week, Willow told me she is going to marry an African woman,” Pink explains. “I was like, ‘Great, can you teach me how to make African food?’ And she’s like, ‘Sure, Mama. And we are going to live with you while our house is getting ready.'”
“I was like, ‘What the fuck, who are you?'” she adds. “‘Who is paying for this by the way?'”
There’s been plenty of laughs in the Hart household, Pink says, including conversations about President Donald Trump. She says Willow has given the commander in chief a hilarious nickname: “Donald Duck Trumpet.
“I don’t correct her. And I should, because it’s disrespectful, but it’s like — fuck it,'” she shares. “I feel like we are all in this permanent state of fuck it. I can’t imagine being a third-grader and this being the first example of what it means to be president.”
Translation: I’m abusing my child and setting her up to be an insecure failure in life. Which these children are going to end up having years of therapy due to this child abuse. What has this world come to that people are accepting this insanity and sickness?
Leftists having children is a scary thing.
Kathy Griffin Shares Photo Of Covington Students Flashing ‘New Nazi Sign,’ Quickly Deletes It
Kathy Griffin really has no concept of when to shut up and go away. Earlier this week she called for the doxxing of the Covington students. She has also posted a photo from one of the school’s basketball games that she claimed shows the boys “throwing up the new nazi sign.” She’s deleted it now, probably because attorneys made it known they were collecting evidence online for lawsuits. No doubt Griffin will be named in all that and should be.
“Covington’s finest throwing up the new nazi sign,” read the tweet. It included a picture of Covington Catholic High School basketball players holding up what anybody who’s ever watched a game would recognize as a “three-point” symbol. Anyone but Griffin it would seem. It’s too bad for Griffin that the Internet is forever.

The pic has been making the rounds on the Internet. Griffin is being eviscerated on social media… again. She is real big on going after kids. She did it to President’s Trump’s son Barron and to his grandchildren. Griffin has also done it to other children as well – Sarah Palin’s kids come to mind. She is not well in my estimation.
When Griffin called for the doxxing of the boys, she said: “I want NAMES. Shame them. If you think these f***ers wouldn’t dox you in a heartbeat, think again.” Unable to contain herself from spouting lies and viciousness, she just keeps going. This time, I would wager, will really cost her in the form of lawsuits. She even double-downed on her calls for doxxing the boys, “Names please. And stories from people who can identify them and vouch for their identity. Thank you.”

And right on cue, Robert Barnes, the attorney representing the boys pro bono and their families, is now saying they will indeed take legal action. “Hey, @kathygriffin, if someone wants to serve you a libel & invasion of privacy suit for these kids, do they send it to @LisaBloom or is she still busy helping Harvey?” Barnes tweeted.
Barnes is all over the media calling the allegations against the boys false and they are. “No media member who refuses to retract at this juncture has any credible defense to libeling these kids.” He has repeatedly called out specific media personalities and outlets threatening lawsuits if they fail to adequately retract their initial libelous reports. Earlier today, he said they had 48 hours to retract and apologize or be swept up in legalese.
Names please. And stories from people who can identify them and vouch for their identity. Thank you.

Griffin and her 18-year-younger boyfriend Randy Bick are also embroiled in another lawsuit per Hank Berrien at The Daily Wire. From The Wrap:
“According to the suit, Griffin and Bick “undertook a campaign of secret electronic surveillance and recording almost immediately after taking up residence,” first with their iPhones, then with an audio-video surveillance system that was pointed directly into the Mezgers’ backyard “in order to spy on and record them.” The suit says that Griffin and Bick “illegally captured hundreds of hours of audio and video from the Mezgers’ back yard” and that the Mezgers only learned about it in September 2017, months after the secret recordings began, when Griffin and Bick leaked one of the recordings to the media.”
Ah, the price of notoriety… eh, Kathy? Hope you have a really good lawyer on retainer. You are going to need one.

Many independent journalists who lean left agree the kids were falsely attacked, led by one of the best grassroots journalists in the country on these kind of issues, @Timcast. No media member who refuses to retract at this juncture has any credible defense to libeling these kids
