Why do businesses all of a sudden feel the need to get political? From Nike with that has-been Colin Kaepernick, to Target and their genderless restrooms, and now Ben and Jerry’s.
The founders of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream, Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield have now teamed up with the extreme left wing Soros funded communist group MoveOn.org in order to help Democrats stage a coup this coming midterm.
IJR Red is now reporting that in an announcement on the social media platform Twitter, Ben and Jerry said people need to vote for progressive congressional candidates in order to resist President Donald Trump. What they really mean is to impeach the President for the crime of beating Hillary Clinton.
The elderly communist duo released a statement where they say we need a Democratic majority to check President Trump’s unrestrained power. And we also need to send progressive champions to Congress who will fix our health care system with Medicare for All, protect clean air and water, and get big money out of politics. So basically what they really want is a Communism, unlike the style the have in China.
Because the left really has nothing to offer voters instead of undoing the great economic accomplishments President Trump’s policies have brought, they are actively trying to encourage voting and participation by making new ice cream flavors and, along with flavor names which are to be based on the candidates’ campaigns.
Of course they preach socialism, but then it comes to their bottom line it’s a totally different story as reported by The Goldwater:
“Everyone in America appreciates a delicious scoop of Ice Cream. However do the corporate behemoths appreciate the hard work that goes into their profit margins? Worker’s at Ben & Jerry’s don’t seem to believe the company values their efforts.
That’s why scores of employees organized and marched today on the Liberal Ice Cream giant’s unfair policies towards their staff. They simply want to earn a living wage and be offered the benefits and protections any hard working American would ask for.
Ben & Jerry’s is a notoriously Liberal company that has spoke out against President Trump and the right wing on several occasions. Regarding President Trump’s immigration policies they stated, “In light of the Trump administration’s second crack at an executive order limiting immigrants and refugees from predominantly Muslim countries, we wanted to reiterate Ben and Jerry’s strong opposition to this assault on America’s commitment to fairness, the rule of law, and religious liberty. At Ben & Jerry’s we understand this policy is not only bad for our nation, it’s bad for business.”
So why is this business treating it’s employees so poorly then? Victor Diaz, a strong Trump Supporter and employee of Ben & Jerry’s said” We can’t wait any more. We are going to pressure them and see what happens,’’ Victor is a legal Immigrant who works on farm in Vergennes.
One of the Ben & Jerry’s spokesman, Sean Greenwood, said before Saturday’s march from the Statehouse to the Waterbury factory that the company was eager to reach an agreement and negotiations were underway.
‘‘We are a values-led business. We frame ourselves as an aspiring social justice company,’’ said Greenwood. ‘‘We try to do good with everything we can with our business. Dairy has definitely been one of those issues we have done a ton of work on for decades.’’ Greenwood said.
Employees however claim Ben & Jerry’s had agreed over two years ago to participate in the so-called Milk with Dignity program, but the company and worker representatives have yet to reach an agreement due to delays from the corporate side.
The program titled “The Milk with Dignity” program was developed in 2014 by farm workers and the Vermont group Migrant Justice to ensure that all farms provide employees fair wages and working conditions and decent housing. In 2015, Ben & Jerry’s agreed to join the program. Since then, the two sides have been negotiating over the details.
‘‘We’ve been negotiating in good faith,’’ said Lambek. ‘‘It’s an unacceptable delay.’’
Meanwhile workers continue to struggle. The march began early Saturday morning in Montpelier and ended mid-afternoon at the plant in Waterbury, about 14 miles away from the starting point. Organization leader Will Lambek said the marchers presented a letter to company CEO Jostein Solheim who said the company was committed to joining the program
This isn’t the first time the devout Liberal company has made headlines however. A pro-police group has called for a nationwide boycott against Ben & Jerry’s after the ice cream company issued a statement last week announcing its enthusiastic support for the Black Lives Matter movement. They enjoy controversy and pandering to the left wing.
When Ben & Jerry’s was subject to a nationwide boycott by police they released a statement saying, “We’ve come to understand that to be silent about the violence and threats to the lives and well-being of Black people is to be complicit in that violence and those threats,” the Ben & Jerry’s statement read. “All lives do matter. But all lives will not matter until Black lives matter.”
Blue Lives Matter, a media company made up of active and retired law enforcement officers, accused the ice cream company of leading a “dangerous” campaign, stating Ben & Jerry’s went beyond making a statement in support of civil rights when they actively accused law enforcement of widespread racism,” the group said in a statement Monday. “By spreading these false and misleading statements, Ben & Jerry’s lends an appearance of legitimacy to the baseless claims that police officers are killing men based on the color of their skin. This message has inspired the assassination and attempted assassination of police officers, and it costs officers their lives.
Blue Lives Matter went on to suggest that “By not only attacking law enforcement, but openly supporting Black Lives Matter, Ben & Jerry’s is sure to anger most Americans who do not agree with the political causes that they are supporting,” they wrote. “Blue Lives Matter is calling on all Americans to boycott all Ben & Jerry’s products and send a message that we do not agree with Black Lives Matter or their goals. Please get the word out about the importance of this boycott.”
One thing is certain, Ben & Jerry’s places profits first and does very little to care about the well-being of the working man.”
Since the left or this has been duo have nothing to offer they are begging people for help in creating and naming seven ice cream flavors that capture the essence of what each candidate stands for.
Yo, internet! We need ur help to come up with 7 amazing flavors for 7 amazing up & coming progressives who could be headed to Congress in Nov. To sweeten the deal, Jerry & I will personally make a small batch of each of the winning flavors @MoveOn https://t.co/Gvn876rtTA

Mark Zuckerberg Just Stole $315,000 From A Triple-Amputee Vet
Mark Zuckerberg must need money because he just robbed a triple-amputee Iraq War vet blind.
Brian Kolfage joined the Air Force just before 3000 Americans were killed in the September 11, 2001 terror attacks that also destroyed the Twin Towers in New York City. He wanted to serve. He wanted to keep what had happened to thousands of his fellow Americans from happening again. It was his duty, he believed.
During Brian’s second tour in the Middle East, he volunteered for a dangerous mission in Iraq.
On September 11th, 2004, exactly 3 years to the day since the 9/11/01 attacks, a 107 mm rocket landed feet from Airman Kolfage. Instantly, he lost both of his legs just below the hip and his right hand.
Kolfage wasn’t expected to survive, let alone walk again, but he did.
After almost a year recovering at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, Kolfage walked out of the facility.
Airman Kolfage continued overcoming the odds by going back to work for the Air Force as a base security manager. He also served on Congresswoman Gabrielle Gifford’s Veterans Advisory Committee. Brian went on to enroll at the University of Arizona’s School of Architecture. He learned to draw with his left hand as his dominant right was gone. Kolfage graduated from university and was also awarded the prestigious Pat Tillman Scholar award.
In 2014 Brian was bestowed the George C. Lang Award for Courage, for his fearlessness and also his selfless actions taking care of other wounded veterans.
Today, Brian makes trips to Walter Reed Medical Center and travels the country motivating veterans & others.
In the midst of all this, Senior Airman Kolfage got married & has two wonderful kids.
Even with all of that, Kolfage wasn’t done. He became interested in news publishing and began managing pages on Facebook for news websites. He also co-founded a coffee company, Military Grade Coffee, which donates 10% of all profits back to veteran organizations.
You might not have known it, but Airman Kolfage ran the Right Wing News Facebook page and had been involved with the brand for several years among starting others. That is, until a few days ago when Facebook decided they didn’t agree with Brian’s conservative views. The page had 3.6 million fans, and Brian was a major factor behind its new growth and revitalization.
Over the years, Kolfage invested $315,000 to grow brands on Facebook. Facebook requested admins of pages to invest tons of money to grow and reach larger audiences for the brands he managed. Zuckerberg had no problem taking Brian’s money. But now Zuckerberg & Facebook decided they couldn’t allow the popular conservative page to get in the way of the 2018 midterm elections after it became a pivotal part of President Trumps 2016 upset to Hillary Clinton. Facebook headed up by Zuckerberg used a well-planned opportunity to take out actual bad pages and lumped in Airman Kolfage’s conservative network.
They robbed him blind, they did him dirty. They took $315,000 from his company rolled it up and laughed at his sacrifice. This was purely political, they attacked him personally. But Facebook made one fatal flaw, they underestimated the power of a triple amputee veteran. The underestimated the huge PR mess they are about to be slapped with when Trump has Airman Kolfage in his Oval Office in front of the media, they underestimated the willpower of a veteran who lost so much.
Airman Kolfage wrote that because of Facebook’s actions:
“My income as a father and husband is threatened.
This isn’t the right to free speech I gave my legs and arm to defend. Three limbs wasn’t enough for some … now my livelihood is gone with it.
It is true: I have been managing the Right Wing News Facebook page, and have been involved with the brand for many years.
And just today, Facebook took down our Facebook page, cutting off all contact we had with the millions of people who signed up to follow us, the millions of people who liked what we were sharing online.
I took over managing the page when John Hawkins decided to step aside to pursue other endeavors. John and I have a great relationship and I was honored to have the torch passed down to me. We had a coveted, verified blue check mark 3.5 Million fans, and I invested over $300,000 in ads at Facebook’s own request, nearly begging us to spend spend spend just to reach our fans … whom they kept making more difficult to reach with every passing year.
Never once did Facebook come to us to say there was any issue with Right Wing News or our other pages. Never. But they sure loved taking our money.
We did run multiple Facebook pages; Facebook allows businesses to have more than one page, and we did own them and had them for years. We were not “spamming,” we were not using fake accounts, we were not doing anything “wrong” … except we supported President Trump, and apparently that’s not allowed.
Facebook also deleted my other business page. I own a coffee company called Military Grade Coffee company. We don’t post politics, we sell coffee and support veteran charities. Facebook is maliciously attacking my way of life because of my beliefs, and they don’t care.
What Facebook has done is illegal. It’s a malicious coordinated attacked on everything I fought for and everything generations of Americans fought for. And this is exactly why a Facebook Engineer making 6 figures a year walked out and quit his job today, over the assault on conservative beliefs within his former company.
The New York Times even stated that Facebook made this calculated move to silence thousands of voices (and millions of forwarded messages) because of the upcoming midterm elections.”
I’ve known Brian for years and had the pleasure of working with him on several projects.
As the editor of Right Wing News, I saw how hard he worked to manage the Facebook page, and to ensure it grew in popularity. He is a tireless worker, and extremely proud of what he has accomplished for others on social media. And now Zuckerberg & his company, Facebook, have robbed him of it & his investments. I mean, they even took down his coffee company page. That’s some serious hatred for the man right there. Facebook is literally stripping him of his means to provide for his family. Didn’t he give enough for his country, not to mention, to Facebook? He overcame odds most in this world will never experience, only to be ripped off by Zuckerberg????
That’s a GD shame.
DON’T STOP SHARING THIS UNTIL BRIAN GETS JUSTICE!

Trump Just Revealed Major Admin Leaving His Administration – Sends Shockwaves Through D.C.
It’s no secret that people come and go inside of each administration.
The same is true for the Trump Administration, but the rumors are flying about one of the biggest names inside Trump’s core crew. People are saying he’s actually a Democrat.
Fox News wrote:
In an interview set for broadcast Sunday, President Trump speculated whether Secretary of Defense James Mattis might soon leave the administration, just weeks after a book by journalist Bob Woodward reported that Mattis had privately compared Trump to a “fifth- or sixth-grader.”
Asked by “60 Minutes” host Lesley Stahl whether Mattis would depart, Trump responded, “Well, I don’t know. He hasn’t told me that.”
He continued: “I have a very good relationship with him. I had lunch with him two days ago. … It could be that he is. I think he’s sort of a Democrat, if you want to know the truth. But General Mattis is a good guy. We get along very well. He may leave. I mean, at some point, everybody leaves. Everybody. People leave. That’s Washington.”
The president also called reports that the White House is in chaos “so false” and “fake news.” He added, “I have people now on standby that will be phenomenal. They’ll come into the administration.
“Yeah, other people will go, sure,” Trump told Stahl. “We have a great Cabinet. There are some people I’m not happy with. I have some people that I’m not thrilled with. And I have other people that I’m beyond thrilled with.”
“Secretary Mattis is laser-focused on doing his job — ensuring the US military remains the most lethal force on the planet,” Pentagon spokesman Army Col. Robert Manning said Sunday in response.
Trump’s comments come shortly after U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley abruptly announced her resignation. They also highlight what some media reports have indicated is an unusually large number of high-level departures from the Trump administration — figures recently contextualized in an analysis by the nonprofit Brookings Institution.
Woodward’s book “Fear,” released in September, claimed that Mattis told associates at a National Security Council meeting this year that Trump had the understanding of, and often acted like, a “fifth- or sixth-grader.”
And after Syrian dictator Bashar Assad launched a chemical attack on Syrians in April 2017, Woodward’s book reported that Trump demanded Mattis launch an assassination attempt.
“Let’s f—ing kill him! Let’s go in. Let’s kill the f—ing lot of them,” Trump reportedly said. But Mattis, according to the book, told an aide: “We’re not going to do any of that. We’re going to be much more measured.”
According to Woodward, Mattis also was caught by surprise while on vacation about Trump’s proposed ban on transgender troops. Mattis, who reportedly opposed the policy, has since unveiled a policy largely adopting Trump’s requests, although several lawsuits have temporarily put a hold on enforcing it.
In a statement, Mattis said that “the contemptuous words about the president attributed to me in Woodward’s book were never uttered by me or in my presence.”
Trump, for his part, has openly wondered whether the Pulitzer Prize-winning Woodward is a “Dem operative.” In a Twitter post last month, Trump called his book a “con on the public.”
The Woodward book has already been refuted and discredited by General (Secretary of Defense) James Mattis and General (Chief of Staff) John Kelly. Their quotes were made up frauds, a con on the public. Likewise other stories and quotes. Woodward is a Dem operative? Notice timing?
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 4, 2018
Mattis, who Trump named as Defense Secretary in 2016, previously served as head of United States Central Command under former President Barack Obama, replacing David Petraeus. He enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve at the age of 18 and became a second lieutenant after graduating from Central Washington University in 1971.
Known as “Mad Dog” Mattis, the defense secretary has openly disagreed with Trump on several key issues. He favored preserving aspects of the Obama-era Iran nuclear deal, which Trump repeatedly maligned as a “horrible, one-sided” giveaway before unilaterally dumping it and restoring sanctions earlier this year.
Mattis, who also took issue with the Obama administration’s approach to Iran, criticized parts of the deal, but said it included “robust” oversight measures and overall helped U.S. interests.
Additionally, Trump and Mattis have sparred over the role of NATO, with Trump regularly criticizing its member nations for not contributing more of their GDP to national defense. Mattis views the alliance as a key to maintaining international order.
Mattis further has characterized global warming as a national security threat, while Trump has said the issue is highly politicized and over-emphasized. Last year, he dropped climate change from his national security strategy.
Still, Mattis has turned Trump around to some of his positions. He famously convinced the president to abandon his stated desire to torture terror detainees, and also persuaded him to send more troops to Afghanistan.
Mattis is showing no outward signs of withdrawing from his normal duties.
On Tuesday, he will begin his second trip this year to Vietnam, in a sign of how much the Trump administration is trying to counter China’s military assertiveness by cozying up to smaller nations in the region. Mattis will visit Ho Chi Minh City, the most populous city and the economic center. It used to be known as Saigon.
The arrival of Deputy National Security Adviser Mira Ricardel to the White House in May has, however, been seen as a sign that Trump is planning to fire Mattis after November midterm elections. Ricardel and Mattis have previously sparred.
Similarly, the hiring of the hawkish former U.N. ambassador John Bolton to be national security adviser in March signaled Trump’s shift further to a hardline stance than Mattis is known for advocating. “I heard you’re actually the Devil incarnate and I wanted to meet you,” Mattis told Bolton in an exchange captured by microphones when they met at the Pentagon earlier this year.
In September, Mattis downplayed reports that he would soon be exiting the Defense Department.
“Somebody cooks up a headline,” he told reporters on the steps on the Pentagon. “They then call to a normally chatty class of people, they find a couple of other things to put in, they add the rumor, somebody else on the other coast starts writing the same thing — next thing you know you’ve got a story.
“It’ll die down,” he added. “How many times have we been through this now, just since I’ve been here? It’ll die down soon and the people who started the rumor will be allowed to write the next rumor, too.”
We’ll see how this all turns out. We now the media isn’t to be trusted.
