“These companies should be held accountable for the damage they’ve done, and if they don’t, they should be boycotted,” Michael Johns says.
The Selling Out of America is a two-part series. The first is focused on domestic terror and the funding of these groups, with Dr. Ron Martinelli. The second part of the series is focused on our global adversaries and the companies that are funding these relationships, with Michael Johns.
Michael Johns is a national co-founder and leader of the U.S. Tea Party movement. He has served previously as a White House speechwriter to President George H.W. Bush, a senior aide to a U.S. Senator and Governor, and a policy analyst at The Heritage Foundation.
A new group has been formed to put the emphasis on our personal and fiscal responsibility as citizens to be conscious of where we spend our money. It’s done through a nationwide database of linking consumers with businesses who share their values. https://shoptotheright.com
