    COCA-COLA is facing backlash after it told employees to "try to be less white" in a bid to combat racial discrimination.

Dhillon The leaked training slides were met by outcries, with some people claiming that diversity training is being weaponized against Americans. Conservative political commentator Candace Owens encouraged Coca-Cola employees to sue the brand for its "blatant racism". "If a corporate company sent around a training kit instructing black people how to 'be less black', the world would implode and lawsuits would follow. I genuinely hope these employees sue @CocaCola for blatant racism and discrimination,"...

    The Republican Party spent millions of dollars on lawyers in anticipation of election-related legal battles who have abandoned President Donald Trump, said Harmeet Dhillon, the former vice chairwoman of the California Republican Party. Dhillon observed how Republican donors have been parasitized by political consultants, campaigns, political action committees, and related operations. She shared her analysis on Thursday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight with host Joel Pollak. “If we continue to run [elections and campaigns] like we have now, which is sort of a clique of grifters taking a bunch of money as middlemen from in between donors and giving it to candidates and ground and and party infrastructure, we will lose,” Dhillon said. “We will lose elections forever,” Dhillon said. “We have to do a better job of doing that hard, unglamorous work. Yes, paying lawyers to go do that work in advance.’ “What we’re finding right now is quite a...
    While vote tallies continue, President Trump is pushing ahead with legal challenges, and his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani said Sunday he expects to have four or five more lawsuits over alleged voter fraud in battleground states filed by the end of the week. Here's a rundown of the challenges being pursued in the 2020 campaign between the president and former Vice President Joe Biden. In the face of historic and unprecedented irregularities in the counting of votes in swing states including Michigan, Wisconsin, Arizona, Nevada, Georgia and Pennsylvania, Republican lawyers are suing to ensure the integrity of this election, and to give the public comfort that every legal vote has been counted – legal being a critical adjective the Biden/Harris campaign have conspicuously left out of their public statements on this election.  PENNY NANCE: 2020 ELECTION'S ONLY WAVE – REPUBLICAN WOMEN DOUBLE NUMBERS IN THE HOUSE The Trump campaign and state GOP organizations have filed lawsuits in...
    Judge Amy Coney Barrett made it through day two of her Supreme Court confirmation hearings and Trump 2020 advisory board member Harmeet Dhillon told Fox Business Network's “The Evening Edit” that her ability to stay cool, calm and collected is almost supernatural. Democratic senators have repeatedly attempted to catch Barrett off guard about her stance on the Affordable Care Act, but Dhillon told host Elizabeth MacDonald she doesn’t think they even “landed a finger on her.” “In fact, it's almost like she has a superpower by calmly sitting there and politely responding to these questions,” she said. “I think she made each and every one of them look silly or worse.” Dhillon argued that the hearings so far have been a “failure” and said the Democrats should call it quits.

    Harmeet Dhillon, the former vice chairwoman of the California Republican Party and the lawyer that represented fired Google employee James Damore, appeared on Breitbart News Today with Breitbart Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow to discuss a number of topics including the lack of action taken by the federal government to reign in the Masters of the Universe during the Trump administration. Speaking with Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Today, former vice chairwoman of the California Republican Party and lawyer Harmeet Dhillon discussed a number of topics including Democratic Vice Presidential nominee Kamala Harris and the upcoming Vice Presidential debate. Dhillon also discussed the future of Big Tech and the lack of action taken by the Trump Administration to reign in the overwhelming power of Silicon Valley. Marlow introduced the topic of Big Tech later in the show stating: “It seems like just so little has been done to...
    Judge Amy Coney Barrett, who President Trump nominated Saturday to serve on the Supreme Court, could have a major impact for decades to come on landmark civil liberties cases and other cases coming before the high court if the Republican-controlled Senate confirms her as expected. Barrett could have a long tenure on the court because she is only 48, which is young by Supreme Court standards. She would fill the seat held for the past 27 years by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died Sept. 18 at age 87. The liberal Ginsburg was considered by many to be the only justice on the Supreme Court with a civil rights background. She played an oversized role in many key civil rights decisions.

    Immediately following the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, blue-check Twitterati swiftly condemned Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, outraged by his commitment to holding a vote on the resulting high court vacancy during an election year. “Hypocrite!” they cried. But the gold medalist of election-year Supreme Court nominations is Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden, whose remarkable “triple Lindy” of position changes on the issue puts him in the pantheon of appointment acrobats. VideoIn 2016, Senator McConnell successfully blocked President Obama’s election-year efforts to fill the vacancy left by Justice Antonin Scalia’s death. In 2020, President Trump and Senator McConnell both announced they would fulfill their constitutional duties by moving the nomination of a successor forward – the very thing Democrats urged in prior years when it suited them.

    HAYWARD — A Cal State East Bay student who ran for student body president and got the most votes, is suing the university, claiming he was not awarded his rightful title. Student Mahdi Fugfugosh, a senior, filed the lawsuit Wednesday with the Alameda County Superior Court, with the support of his attorney, former chair of the California Republican Party and free speech attorney Harmeet Dhillon, and the support of the NAACP. CSU East Bay student Mahdi Fugfugosh, as seen in a screenshot taken from a Sept. 9 press conference.  Fugfugosh ran for student body president of the California State University, East Bay Associated Students Incorporated (ASI), the student government system. He was one of three candidates but even though he was the highest vote-getter in March with 43.28% of the vote, the Election Committee called a run-off because he did not win a majority of the votes. Dhillon, in a...
    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is a “hypocrite” for getting her hair washed and blown out inside a San Francisco salon Monday despite coronavirus restrictions, San Francisco lawyer Harmeet K. Dhillon told Fox News late Tuesday. “When you open up the news and you see Nancy Pelosi wearing no mask and boldly walking into a hair salon...and doing her hair, I’m sure it raised the hackles of every woman in San Francisco who has not gotten her hair done in five months,” Dhillon, the co-chair of the Republican National Lawyers Association and a critic of coronavirus lockdowns, said. She added that that’s she's been doing her own hair at home for the last several months because her salon is closed. “It’s a small salon with two ladies and basically two stations and it’s closed and those poor two ladies are economically devastated," she said. "And if they could open legally, they would. But they can’t...
    Noted First Amendment attorney Harmeet Dhillon responded on Wednesday to former Bernie Sanders surrogate and activist Shaun King’s threat to name random Kenosha, Wisconsin police officers until the department named the officer who shot Jacob Blake. Dhillon, who has represented numerous high-profile clients including former Google software engineer James Damore, announced on Twitter that there were “lawyers on standby” to help any police officer unfairly doxed by King. “To any police officers falsely named by @ShaunKing via his terrorist/extortion threats below, know that lawyers are on standby to help you teach Talcum X a lesson about defamation in court,” Dhillon tweeted. As The Daily Wire reported on Wednesday, Shaun King, who introduced Sen. Sanders (I-VT) when he announced his 2020 presidential campaign, demanded the Kenosha Police Department publicly release the name of the officer who shot Jacob Blake. King said he would begin naming random officers in the department. “To...
    Attorney Harmeet Dhillon said on Monday that President Trump did not pardon Roger Stone, there was a commutation of the sentence, and similar moves by former President Barack Obama were not met with the same reaction. “The same people clutching their pearls and shrieking about Stone’s commutation, I didn’t hear them complaining when Oscar Rivera was pardoned by President Obama. He was even too much of a terrorist for Clinton to pardon,” Dhillon, of the Center for American Liberty, told “Fox & Friends.” Lopez was considered a top leader of the Armed Forces of National Liberation, or FALN, an ultranationalist Puerto Rican group that claimed responsibility for more than 100 bombings at government buildings, department stores, banks and restaurants in New York, Chicago, Washington and Puerto Rico during the 1970s and early 1980s. Obama commuted his sentence in January 2017. Dhillon said Trump’s move was based on the “Mueller witch hunt.” On...
    President Trump’s Friday night commutation of the unjust 40-month prison sentence given to Roger Stone for convictions of lying to Congress and witness tampering was necessary to correct a grave injustice and abuse of power. Now — at long last —   the tragedy of Stone’s wrongful and politically motivated indictment, trial, conviction, sentencing and the rejection of his appeal is nearly over. This is a prosecution that should have never happened, and one that was motivated entirely by ego, politics and hatred of President Trump. The saga began with a predawn SWAT team raid on Stone’s Florida home, televised by a gleeful CNN crew that — by an amazing “coincidence” – happened to be on the scene. It looked like a bad made-for-TV movie about the takedown of an armed and dangerous terrorist leader of the caliber of Usama bin Laden — when, in fact, Stone was unarmed and posed...
    Harvard and elite universities like it have decided that the chaos caused by the coronavirus pandemic presents an opportunity to rob our nation’s higher education students blind – of both their tuition fees and the unique personal experiences and interactions that a college education promises. Other elite institutions are engineering the next academic year to retain just enough of a fig leaf of in-person instruction – as little as 20 percent at UCLA, for example – to minimize the risks having to refund tuition, see a drop-off in enrollment, or, perhaps scariest of all, see their lucrative, full-freight foreign students transfer to other schools rather than have to go back to their home countries to study online. As then-Secretary of Education William J. Bennett said in a 1987 New York Times opinion, our once-hallowed top academic institutions are “under-accountable and under-productive. Our students deserve better than this. They deserve an education...
    Freedom of religion is not analogous to freedom from religion — a remedial lesson in constitutional law that the Supreme Court handed the state of Montana Tuesday. In Espinoza v. Montana Department of Revenue, the Supreme Court slapped down a state law that denied state-sponsored scholarships to faith-based schools on the basis of their religious affiliation. Shortly after the Montana legislature created a scholarship program for students attending private school, the Montana Department of Revenue instituted “Rule 1” to prohibit families from using these scholarships at faith-based schools. Interestingly, Montana’s attorney general objected to “Rule 1,” no doubt recognizing its severe constitutional flaws. JOHN YOO: SUPREME COURT SWING VOTE – WHAT'S BEHIND JOHN ROBERTS' LEGAL GYMNASTICS? The court rightly likened Espinoza to Trinity Lutheran, a 2017 Supreme Court decision that held it was unconstitutional for the state of Missouri to deny a taxpayer-funded playground-resurfacing grant to a preschool just because the preschool was run by a Christian church. In Trinity Lutheran, the court...
