I’ve recently become a proponent of boycotting companies that act against American interests, as you probably know if you’ve read my boycott Big Tech or boycott leftist companies articles. I expressed a similar viewpoint in my article on what companies donated to BLM.
However, I don’t think that’s quite enough. Boycotting Big Tech is a good start, but not enough. Boycotting leftist companies is an excellent goal, but almost impossible to do because of how pervasive leftism is in the technology field and the C-suite of most companies. When I recognized that, I decided to write this article on the top woke companies to avoid.
The goal is not to boycott every single company that expresses leftist viewpoints. Perhaps we will one day be able to do that, but for now, it is impossible. Additionally, there are some companies, like Microsoft, that are obviously slanted to the left, but not open enemies of freedom. For example, Bing, a Microsoft search engine, partners with DuckDuckGo; for that reason, and others, Microsoft should not be treated the same as Google.
Twitter is, I think, the worst offender on this list of woke companies to avoid. It has been censoring conservatives for years now. First, there were shadowbans. Then there were messages about the “context” and veracity of certain posts. And now we’re in the end-stage: Twitter booting patriots like Trump and Mike Flynn off of its platform for daring to express a conservative worldview.
At the same time, Twitter protects anti-Americans. It allows the Iranian government to spew anti-Semitic hatred, leftists to call for Trump’s death and attacks on Trump supporters, and BLM to organize violent riots on its platform. Twitter isn’t interested in shielding its users from “online harm,” whatever that is, but instead is just cracking down on conservatism.
Conservatives need to boycott and avoid Twitter. Even if it means reducing our reach and ability to share ideas, we need to ensure that we are not supporting Twitter until it reverses it’s anti-free speech policies.
Those platforms allow for anyone, right or left, to share their views and converse about whatever they want. You might still be attacked for what you say, people will always try to prove you wrong, but you’ll be allowed to speak freely. Twitter is absolutely one of the woke companies to avoid. Boycott it and switch to Gab and/or Parler instead.
Facebook used to be a pro-free speech platform. Zuckerberg, whatever his many obvious faults, at least tried to defend free speech and allow his users to share their opinions on it. Then, the usual happened. Facebook was taken over by leftists and immediately became a woke company, earning it its place on this list of woke companies to avoid.
First, Facebook started to “fact check” posts and limit the distribution of ones that its biased fact-checkers deemed “false.” As is now the norm, those posts were almost always ones that expressed conservative viewpoints. Then, following Twitter’s lead, Facebook kicked Trump off its platform. Never mind that leftists had planned, and still do plan, violent riots on its platform. Zuck and his team deemed the orange man bad and decided to attack free speech.
Facebook is undeniably more useful than Twitter, which makes it slightly harder to avoid. But we still must do so. Yes, it’s helpful that it gives you reminders when your friends are having birthdays and is a good way to keep up with acquaintances. But it is a one of the woke companies to avoid, so avoid it we must.
An alternative is MeWe. It’s not perfect, yet. But it is a good alternative and is the most like Facebook. Or, even better, you could just avoid social media entirely. It’s a huge time sink and whatever time you spend on it would be better spent having real interactions or reading and learning.
I used to like Bank of America. I thought it was a solid company that had been unfairly treated. Then it went woke and made itself yet another one of the woke companies to avoid.
First, Bank of America decided to stop lending to border detention facilities. Using its financial might, it tried to eradicate border security.
Then, in an even worse and more un-American move, it donated a gargantuan sum to BLM, the Marxist organization that set our cities alight. That was also reprehensible.
Next, after Hawley tried to stop the illegitimate election of Joe Biden, BoA announced that it would take that into consideration, a shadowy statement that indicated it would stop giving to conservatives. It’s free to do what it wants, but conservatives should not donate to such a far-left company.
Keep that in mind when deciding where to park your money. There are banks that are not woke. Renasant is my favorite, but there are others. Just look them up and find one that won’t punish you for loving America.
Another bank, another one of the woke companies to avoid. Chase Bank, a part of JP Morgan, one of the largest banks in America, has decided that it will no longer provide its services to conservatives and deplatformed them from the banking system. Its list of people it kicked out includes Martina Markova (conservative commentator), Enrique Tarrio (head of the Proud Boys), Joe Biggs (Iraq war veteran and conservative reporter), and Laura Loomer.
You might disagree with the views of some of those people. I often do. But it is terrifying that they can be cut out of the financial system for saying things that are legal to say. That is un-American and should frighten conservatives. We cannot do business with companies like Chase Bank that want to destroy us.
This is one of the most disgusting companies on this list of woke companies to avoid. Netflix, like most of the others, used to be an excellent company that provided a terrific product. In fact, it largely still does.
But then it went woke and decided to normalize pedophilia by releasing the movie Cuties, which was basically soft-core child pornography and was an attempt to glorify the sexualization of children. If you hate child porn, you should cancel your Netflix subscription.
Luckily, there are other companies that provide similar services. Rumble has plenty of good, entertaining videos on it; even better, most of them come from a conservative perspective. Hulu might be to the left, but it’s not as bad as Netflix. The Daily Wire is releasing movies now. Amazon lets you stream movies and TV shows (I think conservatives should boycott AWS, not all of Amazon).

In a surprisingly brazen article, “The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election,” Time magazine chronicles a myriad of pre- and post-election actions taken by a loose coalition of Democratic operatives, grassroots activists, mainstream media, tech companies, and corporate CEOs before and after the 2020 presidential election.
According to the article, the effort consisted of “a well-funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across industries and ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage and control the flow of information.”
In the post-election days, the author refers to this disparate grouping of players as a “conspiracy unfolding behind the scenes, one that both curtailed the protests and coordinated the resistance from CEOs” resulting in an “informal alliance between left-wing activists and business titans.”
Although the words “cabal” and “conspiracy” are used to describe the sweeping activities of these groups, collectively referred to as the Shadow Campaign, the article’s author takes pains to note that these efforts weren’t aimed at “rigging the election; they were fortifying it.”
Indeed, throughout the article, there is the repeated claim that these efforts were made not with the intention of subverting the election, but rather as part of a heroic grassroots movement intent on salvaging our democracy and preserving the integrity of this and future elections.

President Trump’s oldest son, Don Jr. highlighted what is next for his family and the MAGA movement. In a video posted to Telegram on Friday, Trump posted a video of his father saying “we haven’t finished yet.”
Trump added on to that, saying plans for the future have been brewing for a while. He said everyone’s hard work during the last four years did not go to waste, assuring he is going to stay engaged and make sure candidates who really represent the people get elected in the future.
“We’re going to fight to elect people who really represent the people. The people like you, who have gone through so much. So I know my father is going to be in that fight, he’s going to keep going,” Trump stated. “I know we’re up against a lot, we always have been.
You know, the media that’s so stacked against us, they put up a study from NYU, one of the most liberal universities probably anywhere on the planet that said there’s no conservative bias in media or otherwise.”
A former Trump advisor confirmed President Trump is expected to be involved in the 2022 midterm elections to help Republicans win back the majority in Congress.
(ThePatriotSource)- Former Mayor of New York City and personal attorney to President Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani, hit back this week after Dominion Voting Systems announced they are suing him for $1.3 billion. Giuliani, true to his style, is not backing down from the massive lawsuit and is standing by the statements he made about the misconduct and fraud that occurred in the 2020 presidential election.
Earlier this month, Dominion also announced that they were filing a lawsuit for the same amount against pro-Trump Texas attorney Sidney Powell, who made similar claims about election fraud but doubled down in her focus on Dominion.
Eric Coomer, the director of product strategy and security at Dominion, has filed suits against One America News Network, commentator Michell Malkin, and OANN reporter Chanel Rion, claiming that these reporters and commentators have inflicted emotional distress and committed civil conspiracy against the company.
But it might just backfire, and Rudy Giuliani has already explained how.
On Monday, America’s Mayor said that he was looking forward to the lawsuit proceeding and that he is keen to fully investigate the practices and finances of the company.
It could be precisely the lawsuit that pro-Trump lawyers have been waiting for to prove that there was some element of fraud or misconduct in the 2020 presidential election, or that the Dominion voting machines may not have been secure as we thought.
“Dominion’s defamation lawsuit for $1.3 billion will allow me to investigate their history, finances, and practices fully and completely,” Giuliani said. “The amount being asked for is, quite obviously, intended to frighten people of faint heart. It is another act of intimidation by the hate-filled left-wing to wipe out and censor the exercise of free speech, as well as the ability of lawyers to defend their clients vigorously. As such, we will investigate a countersuit against them for violating these Constitutional rights,” he added.
Dominion insists that claims that the 2020 election was stolen and that their machines played a role in fraud or misconduct is a “Big Lie,” but evidence shows that misconduct did occur. The question, which this lawsuit will likely decide, is whether Dominion played a role in that misconduct or fraud.
Looks like Giuliani has a big fight on his hands…and it could reveal more about what happened in November 2020.
Former President Donald Trump's senior adviser Jason Miller said it was up to Republican senators to decide whether or not his old boss' plans for a new party became "more serious" after the date of his Senate trial was announced last week.
The former commander-in-chief's aide shared reports that Trump was preparing to create a third party and challenge Republican lawmakers who clashed with him, claiming there was nothing "actively" planned, but leaving the door open to a threat to the GOP on the right.
"The President has made clear his goal is to win back the House and Senate for Republicans in 2022," Miller tweeted. "There's nothing that's actively being planned regarding an effort outside of that, but it's completely up to Republican Senators if this is something that becomes more serious."
The Washington Post reported on Saturday that Trump had considered creating a "Patriot Party" that would challenge several high profile GOP lawmakers, including Rep. Liz Cheney (WY) and Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp—both figures he sparred within the wake of the presidential election.
The newspaper also reported that Trump had told people in his orbit that the threat of a third party on the right would put pressure on Republicans when they vote on whether or not to convict the former president after his Senate impeachment trial.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) announced on Friday that the former commander-in-chief's impeachment trial would get underway in the week of February 8, giving House impeachment managers and the defense time to prepare legal briefs.
"We all want to put this awful chapter in our nation's history behind us," the Democratic senator said. "But healing and unity will only come if there is truth and accountability. And that is what this trial will provide."
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will send the article of impeachment to the Senate on Monday morning, a little less than two weeks after the lower chamber voted in favor of the incitement of insurrection charge.
Trump was charged with inciting insurrection after he told a rally of his supporters to march toward the Capitol building shortly before the building was breached by a mob of rioters, leading to several deaths, a security emergency, and acts of vandalism.
The former president told his rally that they would "never take back our country with weakness," and added that they had to "show strength" as he reiterated unsubstantiated claims about mass voter fraud..
A two-thirds vote of the Senate is required to convict Trump of the charges brought against him, meaning Democrats would need roughly 17 Republicans to break ranks and vote against their old commander-in-chief.

Donald Trump Adviser Warns Republicans About Patriot Party Ahead of Senate Trial (msn.com)This past year has proven to be an eye-opener for anyone paying attention.
We've seen our lives turned upside down by government overreach during the FLU outbreak. Our governors snatched our freedoms away in the blink of an eye. Our right to move freely, gather, worship, work and provide for our families is either gone or has been severely restricted.
Our leaders allowed Big Tech and Big Media to take sides in a presidential election. They and the DOJ suppressed critical information regarding multiple FBI criminal investigations into a presidential candidate and his family during an election.
We've seen several states illegally change election laws to benefit one party over another, voting irregularities, observers thrown out of polling places, videos of poll workers bringing out hidden ballots, images of suspicious activities, thousands of signed affidavits from persons witnessing possible fraud. None of this was investigated, and it was completely ignored by the courts.
Social Media was given free rein to censor American citizens, conservative voices, government representatives, and even the President of the United States with impunity.
The American people wanted to have their voices heard and on January 6th took to the streets of Washington DC, but unfortunately, a small group of extremists who had most likely preplanned an assault on the Capitol took part in what the Democrats are calling an insurrection; however, it was little more than a riot. If this truly was a planned insurrection, there were enough Patriots to take control of the Capitol building.
Why are 30 minutes of rioting at the Capitol building far more appalling than the nine months of mayhem in the streets of major cities across the country that has resulted in BILLIONS of dollars in damages and many more lives lost?
What makes congress more important than "We the People"?
Where is the line between insurrection and a well-regulated militia rising up against tyranny?
Former Prosecutor Jeffrey Scott Shapiro: “The president didn’t commit incitement or any other crime. I should know. As a Washington prosecutor, I earned the nickname ‘protester prosecutor’ from the antiwar group CodePink.”
“They’ve got to fight for themselves, fight for their nation.”
Joe Biden’s remarks this week were crass, and they belie a deep misunderstanding of what is happening in Afghanistan today. As the Taliban continues to take control of territories after the withdrawal of U.S. and NATO troops in the region, the situation is rapidly deteriorating with each passing day. On Thursday, Herat fell, and many are surprised at the pace of the Taliban advance
