‘Hannity’ fans boycott Keurig for
pulling ads over Moore coverage

New York Post, by Max Jaeger

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 11/13/2017 6:47:22 AM

Single-serving coffee-maker Keurig is in hot water with “Hannity” fans. Users bitter the Vermont company has pulled its ads from Sean Hannity’s TV show are calling for a boycott and even smashing their devices on video. “I pulled an ‘Office Space’ with my Keurig…” tweeted New Jersey Marines veteran and life coach John Angelo Gage, along with a video of him taking a hammer to his Keurig in a nod to the 1999 Mike Judge flick. “ Would be a shame if everyone else joined me in the Keurig Smash Challenge #BoycottKeurig #IStandWithHannity #SundayMorning”

We put two of them in the dumpster over a year ago after seeing the problem with stale, stagnant water turning to pond scum in them.
Not a fan of Keurig or the NFL.

I keep being ahead of my time. I wouldn’t have a wasteful Keurig machine if it came wrapped in Christmas paper, have zero interest in NFL or any other football, got rid of cable TV long before it was fashionable to do that, never buy Starbucks coffee...but I’m still mad at the pushy left. What can I boycott?

Ended up "contacting" Keurig via their Press email, as they have nothing for customer complaints. E.G. our extended family all own Keurig machines and drink Keurig coffee, and also drink Green Mountain coffee when out and about. Absolutely no more!!!!!!!!!! We can make quick decisions as easily as Keurig can.

There are a lot of Brands out there that make the same coffee as Keurig. I bought one 3 years ago it is a GE and It makes the same coffee as does the Keurig. At the time it cost only $59.95. The only thing you have to do is load your own water freshly in the carafe that is provide for you. I buy at coffee for the pot at GFS or Ollies.

Media Matters and Soros behind this one as well. I was listening to Hannity on the radio for that interview. Sean spent the first part of show condemning this if in fact true. In the interview (phone) it sounded to me like Moore had a lawyer giving him advice on the the questions. He did not come off as truthful. Hard to know, but if he is suing the WaPo, we may get to the truth.

Bottom line is, if he is destroyed by accusations, with no way to "prove his innocence", this will be a tactic used again and again. Either way, I think Moore is ruined by this, sadly. Timing of this stinks.

What this demonstrates is that businesses are too concerned by social media and politics. All you have to do is have those dozen bot-wielding Communists from place like Berkley and Boston going out thei to pretend to be thousands of angry customers, and these idiots fold. Meanwhile, the REAL customers drop them because the companies have dissed REAL America and real Americans.

So be it. If they´re that stupid, their companies deserve to fail.

However, I know these bot-morons have been tracked down and their identities are known. Mabe some of these companies who lose market due to the assaults by the mud-bot-slingers could take legal action against these activists? They are causing harm. They are doing it with malice.

Relieve them of a few billion dollars - especially if you can track them back to Soros, and the world could be a better place.

I don´t see any difference. She pretended to be a Clinton friend, these bot-slingers pretend to be Keurig consumers.

Sorry. I love my Keurig and will not give it up. I received my first one in 2000 as a Christmas gift and have replaced it twice, but I live in a very hard water area and could not keep the lime from building up in the machine.

I already boycott numerous companies based on their political idiocy so I’m doing my part. One of those companies is GE, #7. Remember that GE doesn’t pay corporate taxes based on a very shady deal they made with the demonrats.

Why so much discussion about the relative value of Keurig, Mr.Coffee or GE?

This is about the effort to remove one of the last defense lines against the Communist Democrats. If Moore goes down based on unsubstantiated 40 year old accusations, we´re doomed forevermore.

Political boycotts cut two directions, and, except in packed deep blue enclaves, there are more us us than there are of them. Companies that want to take a dump on conservatives will lose our business. If all goes well, their management will be out. (Howard Shultz is out at Starbucks, but looking to cause trouble elsewhere.) Hannity is performing an essential duty. If Fox fires him, they just lost another viewer.

Fifteen years ago a fellow LDotter recommended to me the $30 Aerobie Press coffeemaker, which comprises of a tube capped by a small paper filter and a rubber stopper. Warm the water separately, to just below boiling. The coffee is forced through the tube under pressure, like espresso, and comes out strongly extracted. Use whole beans and grind them very fine, nearly to powder. Ever since then I have used nothing else--makes the finest cup of coffee I´ve ever had. (Eight O´Clock whole bean coffee is my usual brand.) I wish I could remember who made the recommendation. Thank you!

White House military personnel removed

Washington Post, by Carol D. Leonnig, Dan Lamothe *    Original Article

Three military personnel have been reassigned from their White House jobs amid allegations that they had improper contact with foreign women while traveling with President Trump on his recent trip to Asia, according to officials familiar with the situation. The service members worked for the White House Communications Agency, a specialized military unit that helps provide the president, vice president, Secret Service and other officials with secure communications. The military is scrutinizing three Army noncommissioned officers who allegedly broke curfew during Trump’s trip to Vietnam this month, officials said.

President Donald Trump´s short-lived communications director Anthony Scaramucci didn´t have much luck shopping his book with major publishers. In the months after getting ousted from the White House, Scaramucci sought a publisher to put out a book, which at one point was titled "I Did It My Way," about his 10 days as Trump´s communications director. A proposal for the book that was circulated to several major publishers earlier this summer and shared with Business Insider promised a "tell-all" to dish on his bizarre ouster from the White House as well as his "countless other interactions involving Sean Spicer,

Almost as soon as it was published I started having second thoughts. I spent all weekend feeling guilty that I’d called for the sacrifice of an otherwise decent man to make a political point.

The Times’ Michelle Goldberg says, “I believe Juanita,” a reference to Mrs. Broaddrick, who in the late 1990s alleged that in 1978, Mr. Clinton, then Arkansas’ attorney-general, raped her at a hotel. Mr. Clinton has long denied the charge. Chelsea Handler tweets an apology to Mrs. Broaddrick.

The chief fashion critic of the New York Times, Vanessa Friedman, fingered Ms. Linton’s black leather gloves. “Black leather, after all — unlike, say, brown leather — is one of the most emotive sartorial symbols in the wardrobe, imbued with a host of cultural and historical associations for almost everyone,” Ms. Friedman wrote. “It is the de facto outfit of villains everywhere, from generic Nazis with their black leather trench

The never-before-published images, taken for a magazine in 2000 and obtained exclusively by The Post, include a number of frames showing the former “Saturday Night Live” star grabbing the media mogul’s buttocks as they pose back to back. An even more shocking snap shows the pair posing on a bed, with Franken cupping Huffington’s breast with one hand. “Franken was clowning around, but it really isn’t funny,” said a source from the shoot. “That’s his tactic, pretend like it’s all a big joke.

Whenever a Republican — in this case, Alabama Senate hopeful Roy Moore — is accused of sexual harassment, his backers are sure to counter the Democratic onslaught with three little words: Remember Bill Clinton? Democrats have been foiled time and again from claiming the moral high ground on sexual misconduct thanks in large part to their decision in the 1990s to ignore, excuse and rebut the well-documented sexual transgressions of the president. After 25 years, however, some liberals finally are asking whether it’s time to deal with their Bubba problem. “It’s only taken 20 years, but the tide seems to finally be turning

A federal judge on Monday permanently blocked President Trump’s executive order to cut funding from so called “sanctuary cities.” Trump’s order would have removed some federal funds from cities that limit their cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities. U.S. District Court Judge William Orrick rejected the Trump administration’s argument that the measure only applies to a relatively small pool of money. Orrick also said that Trump cannot set fresh conditions on spending that Congress has previously approved. Monday’s ruling came in lawsuits brought by two California counties, Santa Clara and San Francisco.

Over the last few days, I’ve had a number of conversations with both right- and left-leaning friends about the political futures of Al Franken and Roy Moore. Without equating the severity of the alleged offenses (Moore’s are obviously worse), I’ve been struck by the extent to which people across the political spectrum will tolerate misconduct in politicians that they’d never, ever tolerate in their own workplaces. In most functioning corporations, if there’s pictorial evidence that a senior executive groped a woman, then that executive is forced to resign. If there are known, credible allegations that an applicant for a senior
