My Pillow Bro Backs Laura Ingraham – That’s A Big Reason To Buy A ‘My Pillow!’

Boom! In a world were so many people are ‘playing it safe’, this guy’s got some stones! That’s worth celebrating!

It’s worth REALLY cheering because he is standing up to bullies, and leading by example. He’s putting his own neck on the line in the process.

Douglas school shooter, David Hogg didn’t HAVE to become a ‘public figure’. But he chose to. He liked the perks that came with it. The fame. The big platform. But as anyone who jumps in with the big dawgs at such a young age can tell you, it’s sink or swim. If you make yourself a public figure, you will get called on the carpet if you use that notoriety to make an ass of yourself. 

And Laura Ingraham did exactly that. But David changed the rules of engagement. Like the kid who taunts a bigger kid, and then whines ‘you wouldn’t hit someone with glasses, would you’? Only, instead of hiding behind a teacher’s skirt, Hogg hid behind a network of hard-left activists that have been seething with rage since roughly November 2016. And they mobilized a boycott.

So the campaign to bully Laura’s sponsors into abandoning her, to force Fox to remove her from the air began in earnest. Sponsors fell like flies. The left’s bullying-by-proxy worked. The same people who cry about phantom threats to the freedom of the press are becoming literal thought police, actively seeking to destroy those who dare to dissent from their views. 

But ‘My Pillow’ isn’t so easily intimidated. It’s called ‘courage’. It used to be a defining characteristic of America.

He was also an early supporter of then-candidate Trump, and has made a business practice of using suppliers based in the United States.

And I’m very proud that every part, even the cotton is grown in the USA,” Lindell told President Trump and a group of business leaders last July when they visited the White House.

“I actually bought a couple of pillows and they’re very good,” Trump said back in July.
[…] “The president shook my hand and told me, ‘You are doing a great job, Michael.’ He also said he is sleeping great on his MyPillow,” Lindell told the Daily News. “I told him, ‘People come up to me all the time to tell me what a great job you are doing and that you are in their prayers. It was an honor to be at Mar-a-Lago on Easter weekend.”

‘Fed up’ conservatives plot revenge against Boehner

waving flagBy Susan Ferrechio | June 23, 2015

Freedom Caucus Chairman Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, said Monday in a radio interview that many conservatives were “fed up” with the string of punishment meted out to members who don’t vote in line with the Republican leadership on key legislation.

The latest punishment was handed down to Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., for voting against an important procedural resolution to advance “Fast Track” trade legislation the GOP is eager to pass. Meadows last week was stripped of his chairmanship of the House Oversight Government Operations subcommittee. “So, Mark Meadows, a good man, a good friend, and what they did to him is exactly wrong, and there are a number of us who are fed up with it,” Jordan said on the Laura Ingraham show. “And we are looking for ways that we can say, hey, we are going to stay with Mark and be as helpful as we possibly can.”

It’s not clear what the frustrated group could do to thwart Boehner, but some are kicking around the idea of trying to slow the work of the House. Freedom Caucus members say that while they number a little more than three dozen, there are an additional 20 conservatives who could potentially vote along with them if they decided to take a stand against the leadership by making it difficult to pass legislation. Republicans control 246 votes, and on legislation that lacks Democratic support, the leadership can only afford to lose 29 Republicans.

Anger at the leadership has been brewing for many months, as the GOP retribution against disobedient conservatives appears to have escalated;

  • Just last week, Reps. Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming, Steve Pearce of New Mexico, and Trent Franks of Arizona, lost their posts on the Republican whip team for voting along with Meadows against advancing the trade legislation.
  • Earlier this year, Republican leaders booted Reps. Daniel Webster and Richard Nugent, both of Florida, from the powerful Rules Committee after they voted against John Boehner for a third term as speaker.
  • In the last Congress, Reps. Justin Amash, R-Mich., Tim Huelskamp, R-Kan., Walter Jones, R-N.C., and David Schweikert, R-Ariz., were tossed from committees after voting against the leadership.
  • Meadows told the Washington Examiner the move to strip him of his subcommittee chairmanship was made by Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, but came at the direction of Boehner, R-Ohio.Reality 2

“I think it was an action meant to try to humiliate or intimate me, but I wear it as a badge of honor, standing firm for freedom for the American people,” Meadows told the Examiner.

Republican leadership aides say the GOP is not striking back in a punitive manner, but places a high value on loyalty from the members and gives top posts to those who don’t buck the Speaker on certain measures, such as resolutions to advance legislation for debate. Lawmakers who are being punished say the leadership is trying to force them to vote against what they believe is best for their constituents, who have flooded their offices with calls and emails in opposition to the trade legislation. Meadows and other Republicans opposed to the trade bill believe the trade bill would cede too much power to the executive branch and would facilitate trade deals that would cause U.S. job losses.

“There is no honor in bowing to a bully,” Meadows told the Examiner. “There is only fighting the good fight and whether you win or lose, I am willing to do my best to represent the people who elected me.”
