More Than 100 Corporate Leaders Meet To Plan Fight Against Election Security Bills

Over the weekend, more than 100 corporate executives and leaders met on Zoom to discuss ways to take action against the new election security laws being discussed across the country, including the law passed in Georgia last month, according to the Washington Post.

“Executives from major airlines, retailers and manufacturers — plus at least one NFL owner — talked about potential ways to show they opposed the legislation, including by halting donations to politicians who support the bills and even delaying investments in states that pass the restrictive measures,” people on the call told the Washington Post.

The Post reported that the meeting was largely led by “Kenneth Chenault, the former chief executive of American Express, and Kenneth Frazier, the chief executive of Merck, who told the executives that it was important to keep fighting what they viewed as discriminatory laws on voting.”

“A statement could come early this week, the people said and would build on one that 72 Black executives signed last month in the wake of changes to Georgia’s voting laws,” The Wall Street Journal reported. “Mr. Chenault told executives on the call that several leaders had signaled they would sign on, including executives at PepsiCo Inc., PayPal Holdings Inc., T. Rowe Price Group Inc. and Hess Corp., among others, according to the people.”

The election security law passed in Georgia has generated controversy after lies from President Biden and other leftists, who have falsely claimed the bill restricts legitimate voting and “ends voting hours early.”

An analysis of the bill by Stephen Fowler of Georgia Public Broadcasting found that “One of the biggest changes in the bill would expand early voting access for most counties, adding an additional mandatory Saturday and formally codifying Sunday voting hours as optional.”

Charles Stewart III, an election expert at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, also examined Georgia’s election security bill on behalf of the Washington Post, and he claimed the bill expanded early voting.

    It’s amazing to me all the controversy on making elections more secure. Although the main stream media and most democrats and liberals are perfectly ok with elections being susceptible to fraud and corruption. Hopefully, the election of 2020 will go down in history as the most indecisive victory of a candidate who has no qualifications at all for being a leader of a country, except for being able to hug, kiss, and fondle girls and women of all ages, and, oh yes, he likes for youngsters to go underwater in a pool and rub his hairy legs. Check out you tube video on Joe’s hairy legs. Listen to this weird sociopath brag about this. Yuck! This is not a person we should have as this country’s leader. God help us all!

    How can these corporate executives be so stupid and yet achieve their positions? Have any of them actually read the bill? I doubt it. They are cowards afraid of the cancel culture.

    The usual Wall Street parasites along with pro sports: as for Pepsi what’s their beef? And the airlines, they are setting themselves up for failure, with the hope that they will be bailed out by the government should they fail.

BLM Leader Vows to ‘Abolish’ NYC Mayor De Blasio’s Vax Passports

Says ‘Free Pass to Racism’,  ‘Modern-Day Freedom Papers’

Chivona Newsome

New York Mayor Bill De Blasio’s vaccine mandates and consequential vaccine passports necessary to enter most bars and restaurants in the city are being dubbed racist by a Black Lives Matter leader.

Chivona Newsome co-founded the Greater New York Chapter of BLM and also ran as a congressional candidate in 2020 for New York’s 15th district sent a statement to Fox News explaining the claims of racism.

“Although Mayor Bill De Blasio ran on progressives values, nothing in his tenure will attest to his campaign promises,” Newsome stated. “The September 13th vaccine mandate is racist and specifically targets Black New Yorkers. The vaccination passports are modern-day Freedom Papers, which limit the free will of Black people.”

De Blasio’s mandates went into effect September 13, ordering indoor establishments making patrons show proof of vaccination before entering. Businesses can face fines up to $5,000 for not complying. On September 20, the Mayor’s office announced it had already issued 3,200 warnings to businesses in the first week.

Newsome continued, “The vaccination mandates infringe upon the civil liberties of the Black community…It’s more than where we can dine or enjoy entertainment, it will result in loss of income. As of Monday, September 27, Black health care workers and educators will lose their jobs.”

Newsome’s concerns for minorities and repercussions such as losing jobs is the same reasoning hundreds of groups and unions across the country have stood up against Biden’s vaccine mandate. Postal workers, Police unions, Nurse Unions and Hospital administrators are all amongst those expressing outrage.

Newsome says De Blasio’s actions are a direct attack on black Americans, and he “chose to disenfranchise and force the very people who elected him into poverty and second-class citizenship.”

She explained that de Blasio is, “fully aware of the hesitancy and distrust people of African descent have about vaccination and their interactions with government and law enforcement.” Newsome concluded, “the vaccination passport will not be a free pass to racism. Our organization pledges to demonstrate until the vaccine mandate is abolished.”

Democrat Pushes Back On False Claim Border Patrol Agents Whipped Migrants

Henry Cuellar

During a CNN interview on Tuesday, Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) pushed back on false claims by other Democrat lawmakers that U.S. Border Patrol agents riding horses were swinging whips at illegal immigrants trying to cross the southern border.

CNN anchor Victor Blackwell pushed the false information during, saying the Border Patrol agents were hitting migrants with what “appears to use what looks like a rope or a lasso” and then asking Cuellar for his reaction.

“Well, you know, certainly, we got to make sure we treat all the immigrants with respect and dignity,” Cuellar responded. “But I will say this, Border Patrol has had those horse brigades for a while, they’ve had them for a while, number one. Number two, they don’t carry whips. And they do not carry lassos. I think the picture you’re talking about, at least the one I’ve seen is the rein, the rein of the horses.”

“And should those be used? Should those be used should even if it is a rein?” Blackwell asked.

“Well, again, if there was a problem, it should be investigated,” Cuellar responded. “And I think that’s it, but we cannot paint the Border Patrol with that same type of paintbrush. Look, you know, what are they supposed to do? Just stand there and let everybody come in? You know, they’re supposed to be enforcing the law, but again, as to how you enforce the law, you got to make sure you treat people with dignity and respect.”

The CNN interview came after a video surfaced of illegal immigrants attempting to evade U.S. Border Patrol agents on horses and run into the country. In response, many Democrats falsely declared that the agents were using whips on the migrants – despite the fact that Border Patrol agents do not carry whips and there being zero evidence any of the agents struck any of the migrants.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), for example, tweeted, “The images of inhumane treatment of Haitian migrants by Border Patrol—including the use of whips—are unacceptable They are fleeing violence and natural disaster and seeking protection in our country The Administration must uphold our refugee laws and stop Title 42 deportations.”
