‘Hostile Takeover’ of Corporations Has ‘Unchained’ GOP

Former Republican White House strategist Andrew Surabian joined SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Saturday this weekend where he offered a message to members of the Republican Party across America, telling them not bend a knee to “corporate interests,” warning that these organizations are “not your friend.”

Surabian’s interview came on the heels of Major League Baseball’s decision to pull out of Atlanta, Georgia, for its All Star-Game in response to a recently passed voting reform law in Georgia.

“We’ve really been seeing a merger between big government and big business,” Surabian told host Matthew Boyle, questioning how businesses have begun to correlate themselves with “woke” policies and the “absolute hypocrisy of the left.”

“If they really wanna go woke, if they really want to claim that they care about these issues, we need to start making these people live by the laws they set for the rest of us,” Surabian continued. “Do you really think the MLB cares about that issue or do they use issues like voter ID and diversity to shield their company from criticism over issues they actually care about like wages or deals that they’ve cut.”

“One good thing to come out of this hostile takeover by the left of corporate America is hopefully it has unchained the Republican Party from corporate interests,” Surabian said, adding:

Republicans, hear me, you do not have to do the bidding at the business roundtable anymore, you do not have to do the bidding of the Chamber of Commerce, or Delta, or Coca-Cola. These companies hate you, they hate your values, they hate what you believe, they are not your friend, and even if they give you a $1,000 check, they’re writing $5 million checks to [Black Lives Matter]. So, the one good thing that could come out of this whole thing is if the Republican Party can finally wake up and understand that we don’t need to be tied into what the corporations want. We should be the party that stands up for the individual, for families, and against the woke left, and against big corporations, and against big government, and against big labor, and against all of these huge multi-national institutions that want to run our lives. We owe nothing to these people.

“There’s been a big shift, and I really do think there’s something good will come out of it if Republicans hopefully finally realize that they don’t need to sing to the tune of corporations anymore,” Surabian said. “Let the Democrats be the party of radical activists and what the big corporations want, a political loser.”

“People hate this [political correctness] stuff,” Surabian added in conclusion. “Every poll shows 60 percent of Americans cannot stand cancel culture, they don’t like political correctness. There’s a big backlash coming. Let these corporations side with the left and let’s make them regret it.”

Rubio, Gillibrand Introduce Burn Pits Legislation to Assist Veterans

U.S. Sens. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) have introduced bipartisan legislation aimed at providing “presumptive U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs benefits to service members who have deployed and have illnesses due to exposure to burn pits and other toxins.”

Reps. Raul Ruiz (D-CA) and Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA) will introduce the bill, known as the Presumptive Benefits for War Fighters Exposed to Burn Pits and Other Toxins Act, in the House of Representatives.

A press release regarding the introduction of the legislation also stated Rubio, Gillibrand, and Ruiz would hold an April 13, 2021, press conference outside of the U.S. Capitol featuring veterans who have suffered from toxic exposure, survivors of veterans who have passed away due to toxic exposure, Jon Stewart, 9/11 activist John Feal, Burn Pits 360, the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans ofAmerica (IAVA), American Legion, and other groups.

“Our war fighters had a job to do, and they did it honorably and without hesitation,” Rubio said. “We will never be able to repay them and their families for their sacrifice, but we can — and we must — take care of them now.”

“This historic and long overdue legislation will cut through the red tape to ensure veterans exposed to burn pits and other toxins while defending our nation will receive the care they need and deserve,” Rubio added. “No more excuses. No more delays. It is time to act.”

Gillibrand offered thanks to those who are cosponsoring the legislation, including her Republican colleagues, while calling out the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for its treatment of certain individuals.

“More than three million service members could have been exposed to toxic burn pits, yet the VA continues to deny them care by placing the burden of proof on veterans suffering from rare cancers, lung diseases, and respiratory illnesses,” Gillibrand said.

“The Presumptive Benefits for War Fighters Exposed to Burn Pits and Other Toxins Act will finally establish a presumptive service connection for veterans exposed to burn pits and other toxins and streamline the process for obtaining vital VA benefits,” Gillibrand added. “I am proud to cosponsor this bipartisan legislation with Senator Rubio, and I thank Congressman Ruiz for his leadership in the House.”
