Major firms cut off Trump, GOP after riots

Marriott and Blue Cross Blue Shield are just a few of the companies that are halting donations to GOP lawmakers who objected to certifying Joe Biden as president, while other businesses move to cut ties with President Trump directly.

The actions come on the heels of Friday’s permanent suspension of Donald Trump’s Twitter account and Amazon’s move to cut off social media platform Parler’s servers in response to the violent riots that the president himself incited last week in Washington, D.C.

Freed argued that companies are just beginning to recognize that "political spending today poses a really broad risk and a deep risk that they need to manage."

Lawmakers introduced an article of impeachment against the President Monday, charging Trump with “incitement of insurrection” over the deadly riot at the Capitol, and could vote on it by mid-week.

The Professional Golf Association. The PGA Championship, one of golf’s four major tournaments, had been scheduled for President Trump’s New Jersey golf course in 2022. Not anymore. Seth Waugh, CEO of the PGA, said in an interview with the AP that “our feeling was, given the tragic events of Wednesday, that we could no longer hold it at Bedminster.” He added that the damage from a continued association with President Trump “could have been irreparable.”

A worldwide governing body for golf, the R&A, announced it “had no plans to stage any of our championships at [Trump’s course in] Turnberry and will not do so in the foreseeable future.”

If the impeachment process proceeds, Trump will have the dubious distinction of being the 1st President in history to be impeached twice in a single term.

Are they really gonna have time to impeach and convict before Jan 20? Can a president be impeached retroactively?

All they need to do is start formal impeachment proceedings before then. If Trump is found guilty, he will be unable to run for office again.That's a win right there.

With any luck there will be tens of thousands of these dirtbags who lose their voting privileges.  If this bullshit continues maybe hundreds of thousands or more.

A few more corporations joined them today and Hallmark has demanded their contributions back Hawley and a congressman from MO.

Was the demand in the form of a nicely worded card?

There might a new market for Hallmark....

It's been said that opposites attract each other.  I guess it's true because obviously they attracted you.

But let's take this discussion a little further.  Republicans who do not vote for impeachment and conviction just might lose their funding, and even their seats next time they are up for election.  I think they must surely be weighing that in light of what has been happening here.

Deutsch Bank and Signature Bank will not loan to Trump or any of his organization in the future. Deutsch currently holds $340million in Trump loans...Good luck collecting that, you may end up with a couple of hotels and a golf course.

I believe I read yesterday that Citi Bank put out a similar statement. Also Parlor is going to the same hosting service as the other alt+right shit house app Gab.

Who owns Gab?

Andrew Torba founded Gab. The hosting company is called Epik (founded by Rob Monster). Paypay and GoDaddy cut ties with Epik in October. Epik started hosting Gab after GoDaddy booted them quite some time ago. In August Epik said it would no longer host 8chan, but to this day still provides them with DNS service. Since August 2017 they have also hosted The Daily Stormer.

I read that before it was down (parler) someone downloaded all of their posts and archived them for future reference, so none of it could be deleted.

A hacker also downloaded all the posts, from 1/6 until it went dark, along with all the posters' identifying information.

So they got that? I had read it said they weren't able to get into administration accounts. Saying that they couldn't see personal info.

They could be lying of course.

Going back and rereading the article  - Gawker said this new hacker only got the meta data with the posts. That does include geo data from where it was posted. But then there was this in the same article - 

Kirtaner, creator of 420chan— a.k.a. Aubrey Cottle — reported obtaining 6.3 GB of Parler user data from an unsecured AWS server in November. The leak reportedly contained passwords, photos and email addresses from several other companies as well.

Then - 

In December, Twitter suspended Kirtaner for tweeting, “I’m killing Parler and its fucking glorious,” citing its rules against threatening “violence against an individual or group of people.” Kirtaner’s account remains suspended despite an online campaign urging Twitter’s safety team to reverse its decision.

So any claims that Twitter only suspends conservatives is demonstrably false.
