Major retailers around the nation have become battlegrounds for political correctness, using their businesses as soapboxes to make social statements. In a time when online business has disrupted the retail market and big box stores are diminishing by the dozen, it doesn’t seem wise to polarize your customer base with a divisive stance.
Home Depot’s number one competition, Lowe’s, has proven to stay true to their core values and the American people, especially our nation’s heroes and their families. Meanwhile, their counterpart has received some pretty bad press over the past two to three years regarding an apparent disrespect for the military. Most of this seemed to occur at the store level and not a decision condoned or approved by the corporation especially since the CEO of the home improvement giant is a major Trump supporter, a fact the founder has not been shy about.
Now the man responsible for the fate of his retail business has just risked his entire company in making a sudden shock announcement.
Prior to today, when Trump was campaigning to be president, Home Depot founder Ken Langone told CNBC that if he pulls off a win, he could go down as “one of our greatest presidents ever.” It was a sentiment in which the majority of Americans proved to agree with having voted him into office. Now, we’re seeing his support for our president in an even bigger way and more importantly, Langone’s commitment to make America great again in a special way that has left military families in America in total shock.
What many American businesses, sports figures, and celebrities get routinely wrong is that they make political statements in vain to say they are against division, when they are really being an anti-American and perpetuating the problem. This often includes using their platform to publicly trash our president. Home Depot knows that while they may offend “some” people, they are promoting something better with their patriotism that we as a country can and should all get behind.
In this recent move, they are showing their appreciation in a big way for the men and women who fight for our freedom and right to make any social statement we want.
Fox Business reports:
The Home Depot Foundation, a leadership arm for the company founded by Bernie Marcus, Arthur Blank and with the help of Ken Langone, hammered down on its pledge to closing the gap among skilled laborers in America.
It announced Thursday it would commit $50 million to train 20,000 tradespeople over the next 10 years, starting with separating military members and veterans, at-risk youth and members of the Atlanta Westside community, in an effort to reduce the number of unfilled construction sector jobs in the U.S. Currently, there are 158,000 unfilled jobs in the sector, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, which projects the total employment number of construction laborers to increase 10.5% by 2026. As FOX Business reported, many six-figure jobs in the sector are going unfilled.
“We want to bring shop class back, from coast-to-coast,” Shannon Gerber, executive director of The Home Depot Foundation, said in a statement. “We’re thrilled to train 20,000 next-generation plumbers, electricians, carpenters and beyond. It’s a true honor to welcome our first classes of separating soldiers as they transition to civilian life and into successful careers in the trades.”
To those who don’t value the sacrifice of our service members or recognize that these heroes are the backbone of our country, they probably think this is somehow unfair. They are probably also the same disgruntled people who left Lowe’s in boycott and took their business to Home Depot after Lowe’s proudly pulled their ads from appearing in the commercial spots during the All American Muslim show on the TLC network. Now, disgruntled anti-American shoppers will have nowhere to go, realizing that their message isn’t appreciated anywhere.
Just as Lowe’s probably lost far fewer customers than they gained from that move, Home Depot probably won’t miss them either. Business is booming for those who choose to respect our country and the values this nation was built on, which is how it should be. The same can’t be said for companies who continue to cater to the liberal agenda.
The country needs to see more of this and likely will within the next four years under President Donald Trump’s leadership. He constantly praises our military which is how it always should be.
American businesses should look at what Home Depot does for our military members and how they treat them and follow their lead. It’s beyond time for this to be the trend as opposed to who can make a bigger anti-American social justice statement. Well done, Home Depot!

Tragic Death Leads To Country Music Star Canceling CMA Awards Appearance
Sometimes, fate comes knocking when we least expect it. That happened to country singer Kenny Chesney last night at the 52nd annual Country Music Association Awards (CMA Awards). An unexpected death in his family kept him away although he was nominated for “Entertainer Of The Year” and “Musical Event Of The Year.”
No details are available at this time on who the family member is. Chesney did not speak about what happened on Twitter either. Keith Urban took home the Entertainer Of The Year award. But I’m sure the thoughts and prayers of the thousands viewing the awards were with Chesney in his hour of grieving and need. The Daily Caller has more on this sad news and the music awards:
The 52nd annual Country Music Association Awards (CMA Awards) took place Wednesday night, but one huge singer was notably absent from the festivities.
Kenny Chesney, 50, was nowhere to be found.
The “American Kids” singer, who was up for the “Entertainer Of The Year” and “Musical Event Of The Year” (for “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright”) awards, skipped the show due to a sudden death in the family. No further details about the tragedy are available at this time.
Ahead of the glitzy event, the Country Music Association Twitter account informed its over 750,000 followers that Chesney would not be in attendance.
CMA Musical Event of the Year winner & Entertainer of the Year nominee @KennyChesney will be unable to appear on tonight's telecast due to a death in the family.

Chesney did not address the news on his personal Twitter account, but he did thank his co-performer David Lee Murphy for his hard work on “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright,” which took home the Musical Event Of The Year award.
Sometimes you hear songs & they just feel good. Occasionally one that feels good says something that people need to hear. That’s how I felt about Everything’s Gonna Be Alright when I heard it. Proud to have been part of this with my friend @davidleemurphy. #musicaleventoftheyear pic.twitter.com/X7l6esqcXq

Alyssa Milano Angers Unhinged Libs For Turning Her Back On Their HERO Avenatti
Alyssa Milano is one of those Hollywood stars on the way out desperate for attention. She has embraced just about every radical leftist cause out there. But give credit where it is due. Milano was doing the right thing when she vowed never again to speak at the Women’s March because of their anti-Semitic ties. Now, she has made a second good call.
Michael Avenatti, bombastic attorney for porn star Stormy Daniels, was arrested last night for felony domestic violence. He allegedly punched a woman in the face that is not his wife and the left is in meltdown mode over it.
— Amanda Shea (@TheAmandaShea) November 15, 2018
Chicks on the Right has more on Milano’s change of view:
I mentioned a few days ago, when Alyssa Milano vowed never again to speak at the Women’s March because of their anti-Semitic ties, that it may have been the first and only time I would ever give Alyssa Milano any credit for anything.
Michael Avenatti was arrested on felony Domestic Violence charges last night, and Alyssa realized this wasn’t about “sides.” This was about a man allegedly punching a woman in the face.
Michael Avenatti, who became famous for representing Stormy Daniels in her battle with President Trump, has been arrested for felony domestic violence … law enforcement sources tell TMZ.
Our law enforcement sources say Avenatti was arrested Wednesday after a woman filed a felony DV report. We’re told her face was “swollen and bruised” with “red marks” on both cheeks.
It was later confirmed that the victim was NOT his estranged wife – as originally reported.
HOWEVER – It is important to note that this doesn’t mean the incident didn’t HAPPEN. It means it didn’t happen TO HIS WIFE.
Update: We can confirm that Michael Avenatti (DOB: 02-16-71) was booked this afternoon on a felony domestic violence charge (273.5 PC). His bail is set at $50,000.

This was enough for Alyssa:

Good on her. This IS NOT about sides.
Avenatti has always been scum. I wouldn’t want anything to do with him in the first place. And she’s EXACTLY right. I would be wary any Republican who found himself in the same situation.
But people are REEEALLY ticked off at Alyssa, because you know… Avenatti was supposed to be our PRESIDENT.
Seriously?? Wow! I’m really surprised by your rush to judgment. Guess he’s not valuable to you anymore? I prefer to wait for facts before publicly disavowing and shaming someone. Might want to delete this tweet and hold tight a bit.
— LAintheOC (@LAintheOC) November 15, 2018
I'm not a fan of Michael Avenatti. And I believe victims should be given the utmost deference.
But I would be a slow to judge on this one. I don't know if Avenatti did it or didn't. But I do know that alt-right trolls have been trying to set-up political figures on the left.
— SwerveForThe Girl (@SfortheG) November 15, 2018
“Believe all women” …or call them alt-right trolls. Whatever.
And listen – I get it – we shouldn’t be quick to assume someone’s guilty of everything they’re ever accused of. But here’s a question: how many of these people stood up for Kavanaugh?
Before anyone judges Mr. Avenatti he deserves the same due process that everyone in America is entitled to. He has been an advocate of protecting immigrant children for FREE. He is the reason Michael Cohen is speaking to Mueller. Trump, Fox, and GOP hate him and this stinks!!
— Elizabeth Holmes (@HolmesTeganimi) November 15, 2018
DUE PROCESS? That’s a new one.
I read it's on SUSPICION of, NOT proven (yet) abuse. Has it changed? I don't want to condemn the guy into I have more facts. I don't like being judge, jury and executioner.
— Avery R. Russell ⚧ ⚨ (@YouEnbyMe) November 14, 2018
Again… what about Kavavanugh? Where were y’all then?
Where are the facts? You know the truth. We don't want another good man discarded as Franken was. Let's wait & see.
— linda may (@lindamayb) November 14, 2018
“A good man.” LOLOLOLOLOLOL.
Also how exactly has he been protecting children other than doing self-serving interviews?
Sorry, Avenatti set the new rules. His career should be over just based on the allegation. Truth is immaterial. He wanted to sink a judge with specious unsubstantiated claims. Not only is he in the same boat he has actually been ARRESTED.
