Corporations halt donations to GOP who voted to overturn elections

Some of America's biggest companies are suspending donations to Republican Congress members who objected to the Electoral College's votes.
The growing list of those corporations, including BlueCross BlueShield, Citigroup (C), Commerce Bank and Marriott (MAR), comes after a pro-Trump mob breached the US Capitol last Wednesday to fight against the ceremonial counting of electoral votes that confirmed President-elect Joe Biden's win.
147 Republicans voted against certification of the electoral votes in a joint session of Congress last Wednesday evening. They included Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley, Kansas Sen. Roger Marshall, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Alabama Sen. Tommy Tuberville, among hundreds other congress members.
"At the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, we continuously evaluate our political contributions to ensure that those we support share our values and goals," said Kim Keck, BlueCross BlueShield's president and CEO, in a statement. "In light of this week's violent, shocking assault on the United States Capitol, and the votes of some members of Congress to subvert the results of November's election by challenging Electoral College results, BCBSA will suspend contributions to those lawmakers who voted to undermine our democracy."
The health insurance company's BLUEPAC political action committee -- supported only by employee contributions -- donated $246,750 to Republican lawmakers during the 2020 cycle. That included $10,000 to Sen. Tuberville, $1,000 to Sen. Marshall and $500 to Sen. Hawley.
BlueCross BlueShield said it's stopping donations to all 147 Republicans who challenged the Electoral College results.

  • I wish twitter did not have a double standard like when March 2017 (1 year and 2 months after the President won the election) Nancy Pelosi posted, "Our election was hijacked. There is no question. Congress has a duty to #ProtectourDemocracy..[]" She and twitter needs to uphold her very own standards and the true the right to democracy. Stop the use abuse of power acting like an illegal dictator bully. According to her standards, she incited uprising, hate, and division for years* . Stop trying to silence an opponent they were elected to their position. Attempting to dismiss their jobs that did what she did for many years but with much more hatred and aggressiveness. "Progressives are pushing for Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to use Section 3 of the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution to avoid seating any Republican House members who have publicly supported President Donald Trump’s attempt to steal the election from Democratic President-Elect Joe Biden." www.thenewcivilrightsmovement.com/2020/12/pelosi-could-use-the-14th-amendment-to-avoid-seating-gop-candidates-who-support-trumps-election-steal/ Daniel Villarreal 12/12/20 thecivilrightsmovement.com retrieved 1/17/21 12:55 a.m *“I just don’t even know why there aren’t uprisings all over the country, and maybe there will be when people realize that this is a policy that they defend,” Pelosi said during a press conference. “It’s a horrible thing, and I don’t see any prospect for legislation here.” Merriam-Webster defines “uprising” as “a usually localized act of popular violence in defiance usually of an established government.” So, here we have Nancy Pelosi, then the minority leader in the House of Representatives, now the speaker of the House, at the very least condoning, if not actually calling for a violent insurrection against the government in response to a policy-a policy that actually began under the Obama-Biden administration." pjmedia.com Matt Margolis 1/07/21 7:07 et, retreived 1/17/21 1:15 a.m. est

    • I'd be more concerned about the state of the Republican Party and its supporters as it turned into a cult. In a cult it sometimes happens that you lose track and accuse others of being aggressive and spreading hate while believing the cult leader every nonsense. I'm not a Democrat but I'm sure Pelosi never incited to storm Capitol Hill.

  • Brick by brick, Trump is being torn down-his power, his threats, his ego, his supporters, his days left. The world is watching the mad, racist man crumble. YOUR HISTORY, TRUMP You locked up children in cages, keeping them from their families and then wonder why you weren't re-elected? You started building a wall to keep Mexicans out who of some you said were "drug dealers and rapists" and you wonder why you didn't get re-elected. (By the way, how can you ban people from a land that your people stole via deceit and violence?) Remember calling some military people "losers and suckers"? That ring a bell? You were a traitor in front of Putin, the American people and the world. Recall that? Big vote changer! Never saw your promised healthcare plan. Americans who really needed it trusted that you'd come through for them. You let them down. Some of your own supporters said they made a big mistake voting for you, said they never would again. Time and time and time again you showed your true colors, one being that you're a racist, that you really don't like "people of color" and that you are all for white supremacists. Remember your "stand down but stand by" statement to the Proud boys? Do you recall telling some "people of color" to go back to their and I quote "shit-hole countries"? Do you remember how rude you were to reporters calling them "fake news" and your other such antics toward them that, no doubt, left them bewildered and/or hurt their feelings. You treated them with disdain, cruelly barking at them pretty much like a mad dog. You also were rude to women, talking about them like they were mindless pieces of meat and that you could have any one of them you wanted by and I quote "grabbing them by their pussy". You degraded them, shamed them. And what about the coronavirus, little boy Trump? Over 390, 000 plus people dead. You know anything at all about that. If you do, you surely don't act like you do. If anything, you acted like you didn't care that people were dying. Many lives might have been saved had you told the American people the truth about the seriousness of the virus that you knew would kill people. "It'll go away." "It's gonna be a miracle." "Drink some bleach." "Put some light under your skin." Instead of taking responsibility for your selfish actions, you continuously blamed every one else. You even fired people in your administration who told you, when necessary, what would be best to do about some adverse situations. You KNEW that there was no voter fraud yet you keep lying to your supporters saying that you won the election, proverbially crying that the election was "rigged," even after it was proved 60 times or more in courts and by re-counts that there was no voter fraud. Still you would not concede. You wanted to hold on to power, to show you white supremist supporters that you were the man for the job, that you would "make America great again." Didn't you really want to say "make America white again"? Even your supporters boldly tell people who speak other languages to "go back to your own country." How bold is that? Bold just like you, huh? Bold just like you inciting your supporters to "go to the Capitol and fight like hell!" In the last days of your presidency, some republicans turned against you, one even saying that you lied to Americans about the election being stolen. Speaking of republicans, it was also found out who the ones were who also encouraged your supporters to "fight for their country and against the voter fraud." They acted out and people were hurt, died, and charged with federal crimes. All because of a LIE. People in America and around the world were looking at all your actions. You lied about one thing after another, did one dirty thing after another. You even pardoned criminals in your administration. Trump, you know good and well that you really lost being re-elected because of your own evil, self-centered, immature, racist actions. In light of everything bad that happened because of you, you STILL aren't man enough to tell the truth! You are the only president to get impeached twice and you STILL haven't changed. You went from bad to worse by reciting what every one knows was scripted. You were no more sincere then than you were in your other scripted speech when the rioting at the capital was happening. Seems that you people think every one is as dumb as your supporters. Every thing you didn't do and say appropriate, and every thing you did and said inappropriate will always be in people's memories. Wrong will never conquer right, Trump. Maybe now or someday you, crooked politicians, your supporters and other people in the world will see that God doesn't like ugly. In retrospect: You never were a real leader! All you did was divide this country, caused death and many to mourn their deceased loved ones. Congratulations, Trump. Pat yourself on the back for you will now go down in history as the worst president ever.

  • NEWSFLASH!!! DEAR MR. PRESIDENT TRUMP, ITS ONLY BEEN ONE WEEK AND AMERICA AND EUROPE CORPORATIONS AND COMPANIES ARE CUTTING TIES WITH YOU AND YOUR REPUBLICAN TROLLS. Credit...Tom Brenner for The New York Times By Neil Vigdor and Azi Paybarah Published Jan. 11, 2021Updated Jan. 13, 2021, 1:42 p.m. ET These Businesses and Institutions Are Cutting Ties With Trump Several large banks and the P.G.A. are among those that have disassociated themselves from the president and his allies since his supporters stormed the Capitol. A Facebook logo reflected on an advertisement board outside the U.S. Capitol. Other companies and organizations have begun to cut ties to Trump-related entities since the Capitol rampage. A growing number of companies and institutions have taken actions against President Trump and his associates since the deadly rampage at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday by the president’s supporters. Universities stripped Mr. Trump of honorary degrees, major banks paused political contributions, and the P.G.A. of America said it would no longer hold the P.G.A. Championship at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., which had been scheduled for May 2022. Here is a list of entities that have severed ties with Mr. Trump or distanced themselves from the president - and in some cases, Republican politicians who supported his efforts to overturn the election. Many were identified by the newsletter Popular Information. Technology platforms Google, Facebook and Microsoft said they were pausing political spending and would reassess their spending in the wake of last week’s storming of the Capitol. Facebook’s announcement came four days after it banned Mr. Trump from posting on its platform at least through the end of his term, after years of defending its hands-off approach. The online payment platform Stripe will no longer process payments for Mr. Trump’s campaign website, The Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday. The newspaper, citing people familiar with the matter, said the e-commerce company had cited violations of its user policy, which bars users from promoting violence on its platform. Shopify, the company that powers e-commerce sites for more than one million merchants, said on Thursday that it had closed two online stores tied to Mr. Trump, including those run by the Trump Organization and the Trump campaign. And several digital platforms - including Snapchat, ISpast, Twitch, Reddit and Twitter - also recently limited or suspended Mr. Trump on their services. The social app Parler, popular among conservatives as an alternative to Twitter, went dark Monday morning after Amazon cut it off from its computing services. The P.G.A. of America The P.G.A. of America announced on Sunday night that its board of directors had voted to terminate an agreement to play the P.G.A. Championship - one of golf’s four prestigious global major men’s championships - at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., in 2022. Lost Passwords Lock Millionaires Out of Their Bitcoin Fortunes “It has become clear that conducting the P.G.A. Championship at Trump Bedminster would be detrimental to the P.G.A. of America brand, and would put at risk the P.G.A.’s ability to deliver our many programs, and sustain the longevity of our mission,” Jim Richerson, president of the P.G.A. of America, said in a video statement. The Trump Organization said it was disappointed with the P.G.A.’s decision. “This is a breach of a binding contract, and they have no right to terminate the agreement.” Companies and institutions are shunning President Trump and some associates after the attack on the U.S. Capitol. The Trump family business, built on luxury hospitality, is contemplating a reinvention. AT&T and Marriott were among companies that will stop campaign contributions to lawmakers who objected to certifying the election. Other companies, such as JPMorgan, paused all political donations. Financial institutions. Several of the country’s largest banks said they would temporarily stop sending donations from their political action committees. Citigroup, which gave $1,000 in 2019 to the campaign of Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri, one of the senators who voted against the certification of the Electoral College results, said it had paused all campaign contributions until March.“We want you to be assured that we will not support candidates who do not respect the rule of law,” Candi Wolff, the bank’s head of government affairs, wrote in an internal memo. JPMorgan Chase, Goldman Sachs, BlackRock, Bank of America and Wells Fargo said they were suspending donations through their PACs. Morgan Stanley said it suspended contributions to members of Congress who voted against certifying the results of the election, but has not suspended contributions across the board. Deutsche Bank, which has been Mr. Trump’s primary lender for two decades, and Signature Bank, are also seeking distance from him and his business. Deutsche Bank has decided not to do business with Mr. Trump or his company in the future, according to a person familiar with the bank’s thinking. TRUMP OWES OVER $350M. Republican lawmakers are accused of giving Capitol tours to insurrectionists before the riot as new inquires are opened. Google bans political ads until the inauguration. Visa last week temporarily suspended all its political donations through its PAC as it reviews its candidate contribution guidelines, a spokesman said. American Express and Mastercard said they would no longer give political contributions to politicians who had tried to block the certification of the election results. “Last week’s attempts by some congressional members to subvert the presidential election results and disrupt the peaceful transition of power do not align with our American Express Blue Box values,” Stephen J. Squeri, the American Express chief executive, wrote in a memo to staff on Monday. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Jan. 13 that New York City would terminate its contracts with the Trump Organization because of the mob riot. The contracts are for two ice-skating rinks at Central Park, the Central Park Carousel and the Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point, a city-owned golf course in the Bronx. “Inciting an insurrection against the U.S. government clearly constitutes criminal activity,” Mr. de Blasio said in an interview on MSNBC. “The City of New York will no longer have anything to do with the Trump Organization.” The New York State Bar Association The New York State Bar Association has started an inquiry into whether Rudolph W. Giuliani, Mr. Trump’s personal lawyer, should be removed from its membership, the organization said in a statement on Monday.The association said it had received hundreds of complaints about Mr. Giuliani’s support for Mr. Trump’s false claims of widespread election fraud. Last week, Mr. Giuliani called for a “trial by combat” in a speech in Washington just hours before the Capitol was stormed. “Mr. Giuliani’s words quite clearly were intended to encourage Trump supporters, unhappy with the election’s outcome, to take matters into their own hands,” the association said.The association’s bylaws forbid members from, among other things, advocating “the overthrow of the government.” Mr. Giuliani, who did not respond to a request for comment, would still be allowed to practice law if he lost his membership in the voluntary association. Big businesses donate to both political parties, with many saying their support is tied to narrow issues of specific interest to their industries. The following have said they were adjusting their giving practices in light of last week’s storming of the Capitol. AT&T, Amazon, Comcast, the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, Ford, Best Buy and Marriott International said they had suspended or ended contributions to members of Congress who voted against the certification of the Electoral College vote last week. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the nation’s largest business lobbying group, condemned Mr. Trump’s conduct that led to the siege of the Capitol and said that lawmakers who backed his efforts to discredit the election would no longer receive the organization’s financial backing. Walmart joined the list of companies to halt donations to members of Congress who sought to overturn the vote tallies. The Walt Disney Co. said it would forgo making political contributions to House and Senate members who voted to reject the certification of votes. It called the siege at the Capitol a “direct assault on one of our country’s most revered tenets: the peaceful transition of power.” The short-term home rental company Airbnb and Dow, the chemicals giant, said their political action committees would suspend all contributions to any member of Congress who voted against the certification of the presidential election. The political action committee for the greeting card company Hallmark Cards has asked two Republican senators - Mr. Hawley and Roger Marshall of Kansas, both of whom voted to overturn election results - to return all of the committee’s campaign contributions. Representatives of the senators did not respond to requests for comment. UPS has suspended its political contributions for now, according to a spokeswoman. American Airlines, BP, ConocoPhillips and the Coca-Cola Company said they would pause all of their political donations while they reviewed their giving practices. “These events will long be remembered and will factor into our future contribution decisions,” Coca-Cola said in a statement. General Motors said it had paused new contributions from its political action committee and noted that the company had not determined which politicians it would give to this year.

  • america is run, ruled, controlled by corporations and that is one of the biggest sources of corruption within your 'democratic republic' so doing business is what makes america america.....so its gone that far......but yes, business is what america represents, not the people, .......trump was a good example of the kind of individual that such a culture breeds........i am surprised your churches arre not named after powerful corporations and the congregation attends to get a weekly report and pep talk by corporate management.......

  • The companies are the reason the US military is fighting war it has no reason and business fighting . These companies will be felt with accordingly. 9/11 won’t be forgotten nor forgiven. They better believe it. Fascists.

  • Bribing government officials has been working great for these non-tax paying (or very little paying for some) corporations and they get what they want through these bribes. Now cutting off the republicans will actually make the republicans do EVEN MORE for them to get those bucks flowing again! Win Win for corporations, Lose Lose for citizens unfortunately. Get dark money out of politics and save the nation.
