New York City Considers Cutting Business Ties With Trump
January 12, 2021 5:05 PM ET

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said Tuesday that after President Trump's role in last week's insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, New York City is considering cutting its business ties with the president's company.

"The president incited a rebellion against the United States government," de Blasio said, "[a] clearly unconstitutional act and people died. That's unforgivable."

The Trump Organization, made up of hundreds of businesses owned by the president, has contracts to run concessions in New York City parks: a carousel, two ice rinks and a golf course. The attractions bring the company $17 million a year according to The Washington Post, and de Blasio says the agreements are all currently under review by the city.

..........

A growing list of major businesses have announced plans to pause or sever their ties with Trump. The PGA of America canceled its plans to hold the 2022 PGA Championship at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J. Stripe, a tech company that processes credit card transactions, has stopped processing donations to Trump Campaign committees, according to The Associated Press.

And Deutsche Bank, which has $340 million dollars in outstanding loans to The Trump Organization personally guaranteed by the president, has also said it will no longer do business with Trump, according to The Times.

Even Right Wing media have pulled back somewhat. Except for the three on Fox Fake News who are not under Cumulus.

But perhaps the most surprising announcement came from Cumulus Media. The talk radio company, which carries popular right wing shows hosted by Mark Levin, Ben Shapiro and Dan Bongino, circulated an internal memo (first reported by Inside Music Media and later the Washington Post) telling hosts they needed to stop spreading false information about the election.We need to help induce national calm NOW," the memo said. "The election has been resolved and there are no alternate acceptable 'paths.'" Saying otherwise on air would lead to immediate termination...It is, anyway, more likely to have an impact than another idea that is frequently floated by people worried about Trump-era misinformation: the revival of the Fairness Doctrine. A broadcast regulation put in place by the Federal Communications Commission in the late 1940s, the Fairness Doctrine directed stations to cover controversial issues fairly, presenting all sides of the subject. It was abolished in 1987 by Ronald Reagan's FCC.

Not just America's Pariah - The World Watches

It sees how vulnerable the US is right now. Enemies included.

But in many ways Europe has already moved on, forging ahead on the deal with Iran, negotiating a trade agreement with China spearheaded by Germany, and organizing global actions to protect the environment.

This is a switch -

The Deep State is real, but it’s not what you think. The Deep State you worry about is mostly made up; a fiction, a lie, a product of active imaginations, grifter manipulations, and the internet. I’m telling you this now because storming the Capitol building has drawn the attention of the real Deep State — the national security bureaucracy — and it’s important you understand what that means.
