Keurig Backing Down: Coffee Company Admits
Public Decision To Pull Ads From Hannity
Created ´Unacceptable Situation´

Daily Wire, by Ben Shapiro

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/13/2017 1:43:02 PM

On Monday, Keurig CEO Bob Gamgort issued a memorandum to employees denouncing his own company’s Twitter announcement that it had pulled advertising from Sean Hannity’s television program on Fox News. That advertising pullout came in the wake of an astroturfed campaign from Media Matters based on false allegations that Hannity expressed support for child molestation and had attacked sexual assault accusers. The pullout led to a massive backlash on Twitter, where Keurig owners began smashing their machines and announcing that they would boycott the company. Finally, Gamgort responded thusly: (Tweet) Gamgort acknowledged that normally they would “pause” advertising on a

Not good enough. I don´t care if they advertise on Hannity or not. I care that they´re part of the politically motivated effort to bully people into believing accusations without proof. We´re on a dangerous path, and Keurig is now part of the machine driving us down that path.

Twitter lefties, whose own boycotts have failed miserably because they are the usual empty threat based on bot traffic, were enraged that people were taking a stand against Keurig.

The problem for the Twitter lefties is: this action seems to have worked a treat.

It turns out that the effort to keep taxpayers ignorant of harassment claims paid to victims of abusive members of Congress – using our own money – may be futile in a least some cases.The victims signed confidentiality agreements, and so did Congress.So the two sides are mutually forbidden to spill the beans.But the veil of silence does not cover third parties who were aware of the harassment and settlements.And people do talk among themselves about such scandalous doings.Not only that, but once they see other people talking, those in the know are inspired to loosen their lips.Thus, we learn

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

The ruling Tuesday by U.S. District Judge Marvin J.
