NYC Council to Walmart: Stop sending your
“dangerous dollars” to our city’s charities

Hot Air, by Erika Johnsen

I don’t even know what to say. Via the New York Post (hat tip to NRO), more than half of the members of the New York City Council have served Walmart with a letter demanding that the company stop making millions of dollars in charitable donations to local groups: Twenty-six of the 51 members of the Council charged in the letter that the world’s biggest retailer’s support of local causes is a cynical ploy to enter the market here. “We know how desperate you are to find a foothold in New York City to buy influence and support here,” says

This is the definition of "cutting off your nose to spite your face". I am sure someone somewhere else can use your generous donation.

Hats off to Cavuto for persevering through that interview.

If you have ANY lingering doubt that today´s progressives are wholly within the ignoble tradition of leftist ideologues who will trample on the needs and rights of individuals for the sake of their righteous cause, pay attention.

At the heart of progressive ideology is a moral abyss.

My relatively small Texas town learned a valuable lesson about discerning between smug "esthetics" and tax revenues. Walmart proposed a large store on the edge of town, displacing three homes (the homeowners were all for the sale) and bringing a much-needed tax boost. But, the anti-Walmart crowd got involved, agitating about the "quality" of Walmart shoppers, the traffic, etc. Finally, after many hearings, Walmart withdrew the proposal. Five years later, the site contains a 99Cent store, a set of storage buildings and a tiny office complex. Walmart built two stores in neighboring towns where it was welcomed.

When Walmart gets any charity request from a New York City based charity, they need to send a politely worded response, accompanied by a copy of the NYC Council resolution, stating that to respect the wishes of your city council, we must respectfully decline your request.

Oh but the evil thing to the leftists, #17, is that Walmart is using wealth it has produced, rather than stealing ours, to do "the same thing." In the leftist view of the world thieves have honor and free citizens trading voluntarily are evil.

This is truly disgusting, NYC telling a philanthropic family that they can´t help the city´s needy. It´s not just the needy, it´s the children. A recent NYT article points out the Walton family aid to education;

“In 2013, the Walton foundation spent more than $164 million across the country [on education]… Walton has given grants to one in every four charter start-ups in the country, for a total of $335 million.”
http://www.lucianne.com/thread/?artnum=781876

This irrational behavior by the NYC council is just like that directed against the Koch brothers by Harry "The March Hare" Reid, the Democrat party, and others. The pure hate directed at Wal-Mart by unions, Democrats, elitists of every stripe (including my yuppy #2 son) is scary.

California once had a catch-all reason for divorce: "irreconcilable incompatibility." This, alas, is what I´m seeing between our major political parties. It goes like this for the Democrats: Tom Steyer money = good; Koch Brothers/Walton family money = bad. How silly is that?

When unions and their lackeys seek absolute control of a city, this is what you get. Non-union NYC residents are simply too stupid to change this so they deserve to reap the rewards of paying higher prices for anything or any service where a union is involved ... the employees in the VA are union ... how GREAT are THEY?

Too many people, including ignorant politicians, don´t realize that Walmart-type stores are excellent for entry level jobs, where an employee can quickly go through the ranks into management. Big Box stores need lots of employees and lots of managers, including $100k+ Store Managers.

If there are 40 year old people making the lowest wages, it´s not Walmart´s fault. Somebody made some poor life decisions.

So - slightly more than half of these council members are hopelessly stupid, right in there with the national average. From the context of their reasoning, they are also in the pockets of New York´s union goons, even worse than stupid.

This attitude explains how people like Bloomberg and DeBlasio can get elected there.

Many years ago, I once heard Toots Shore make the statement that NYC was "the greatest city in the world". Even then I wondered what he was smoking or drinking. I have deliberately avoided from EVER entering NYC even when I had the chance to. For me, there is nothing in that city that I want or want to do. I just don´t like large cities. And the stupidity of the NYC city council is beyond belief. It´s very hard for me to realize that there are people like that. Who would want there entire life controlled by some government entity? I certainly don´t.

I can not overstate this: Honestly! If I were the controlling stock holder of WalMart, I would immediately close every one of my corporation´s stores within thirty miles of NY City! I would simply open the doors and leave the merchandise to the looters. I would lay off every employee, sending them straight to the State unemployment offices on company rented buses. I would not relent. Sometimes you just have to send a powerful message!

It may be a sad thing to do but Walmart should stop all money going to NYC charities. Yes it may hurt some but a message needs to be sent loud and clear. Also the total amount withheld should be stated in bold letters to let the anti Walmart cry babies know how much good Walmart does.

These are the same fools who see no problem with GE, Oracle, GM and other giants directly benefitting from government cronyism and policies, taxes and regulations put in by the Democrats that kill off smaller competition.

I have to deeply and gravely apologize for my stupidity in my younger years. You see, I committed a horrible sin which I deeply regret. I was unemployed, technically homeless and struggling and a friend of mine turned me onto a job that was easy to get. They took anyone and didn´t care what you background was. I never heard of them at the time, so I applied. They had us call people to vote against the building of a new Walmart in the area. At the time, I believed them when they said it would kill off all the small stores so I saw no problem at the time. The group I worked for and later came to despise was ACORN. I only wish I had kept working there to infiltrate their ranks. But that was long before Obama and the whole community organizer publicity. Again, pls forgive me.

Why Israel Is Winning This War
Weekly Standard, by Elliott Abrams    Original Article

The reluctance of Hamas’s “military wing”—a misnomer for the more extreme elements of its extremist leadership—to accept the cease-fire designed by Egypt is, well, logical. Let’s admit it. They do not wish to accept defeat, and the Egyptian terms are a defeat for Hamas. By attacking Israel, what has Hamas wrought? Considerable damage was done to Gaza by Israeli air power, and Gazans will be picking up the pieces for months if not longer. But Hamas proved unable to kill one single Israeli with its hundreds of rockets, and all its special tricks—tunnels, longer-range rockets, a drone—also failed. Nor could

House Republicans are moving quickly to address the growing humanitarian crisis on the southern border, possibly holding votes as soon as next week. As Congress moves closer to the monthlong August recess, the speedy action sends a clear message to Senate Democrats: Take it or leave it. Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), incoming Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and a group of top lawmakers working on the border crisis are set to file a bill that very closely mirrors the legislation crafted by Texas lawmakers Sen. John Cornyn, a Republican, and Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar.

WASHINGTON • In one of his first interviews since his defeat in 2012, former Rep.

In a 15-minute telephone interview, the Republican Akin compared his downfall in the 2012 Missouri Senate race to that of former Sen.

Two of the larger social trends of our time — the growth of payday gambling and the legalization of marijuana — have two things in common: They are justified as the expansion of personal liberty, and they serve the interests of an expanding government. The ideological alliance behind these changes is among the strangest in U.S. politics. Libertarians seek to lift governmental restraints on consensual acts. State governments seek sources of revenue without the political inconvenience of requesting broad tax increases. Both find common ground in encouraging and exploiting the weaknesses and addictions of citizens. (And business interests and their lobbyists,

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip -- Israel on Wednesday intensified air attacks on Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip following a failed Egyptian cease-fire effort, targeting the homes of four senior leaders of the Islamic militant movement.

The Palestinian death toll in nine days of fighting rose to 204, with some 1,450 wounded, Palestinian health officials said.

I took a look back at the current crisis of illegal Central American minors in the Weekly Standard article “Disorder at the border,” published in this past Friday in the new issue of the magazine. In retrospect, I think that the events of the preceding days fixed these issues in the public mind and culminated in President Obama’s notable address following his meeting in Dallas with Governor Perry. Obama had resisted the meeting with Perry, as he resisted visiting the border along the Rio Grande. In Dallas and Austin for big-buck fundraisers with his conspicuously wealthy friends, Obama was ultimately shamed

Conventional wisdom is clear that the next Congress has a considerable likelihood of being a Republican Congress. That same consensus also holds that if the GOP does indeed take control, the next two years will be marked by confrontation with the White House and even less actual legislative action than the present Congress has accomplished. To be fair, there is some compelling logic behind these conclusions. President Obama has clearly opted out of the role of governing through legislation. He has become the most defensive president since at least World War II, blaming the Congress not just for all the ills of the

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has warned all of his colleagues in Congress that President Barack Obama’s new immigration strategy—his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power—could destroy America as we know it. “I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic,” Sessions, Congress’s top immigration hawk, wrote in a letter that was hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday and provided exclusively to Breitbart News. Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing

Attorney General Eric Holder encouraged Americans not to forget race while working for justice and equality in their country. “As it stands, our society is not yet color blind -- nor should it be -- given the disparities that still afflict and divide us.” Holder explained, “We must be color brave, and we must never forget that all are made better and more prosperous if all are given equal opportunities.” Holder made his remarks during a speech at Howard University on Tuesday for the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Civil Rights Act. “We must take into account not only the

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew?

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book.
