Amazon Bans Pro Trump Covfefe Coffee

The beleaguered pro-MAGA coffee brand has now been completely banned from Amazon, after the website cited a single claim criticizing the coffee’s taste as proof of its low quality.

In communications provided to Big League Politics, Covfefe Coffee reveals it had had its product permanently pulled from Amazon after a single user complained to Amazon about the taste of the coffee. Amazon assumed the product must be expired, and immediately pulled it from the online retail platform.

Responding to Amazon, Covfefe Coffee provided the online retail giant with invoices stating when the coffee was roasted, photographs of the expiration date on a bag, and shipping receipts noting when Amazon received the coffee. The company also pledged to use a more expensive, larger ink to mark its expiration date to avoid any future confusion.

Big League Politics reviewed these documents, which revealed the shipment of coffee was roasted in December of 2018, allowed to rest for a prescribed period, then shipped to Amazon. The bags were marked to expire in January of 2020.

In spite of this, Amazon declined the company’s appeal twice, and now considers the coffee “stranded inventory” that will be destroyed unless Covfefe Coffee pays to recall it.

Covfefe Coffee had previously sold other merchandise on Amazon for over a year prior to starting the pro-Trump coffee brand, and is electing to completely deactivate its Amazon merchant account after this example of what the company considers political censorship.

“We are going to recall the inventory and close down the Amazon account,” the company said in a statement provided to Big League Politics, which noted that Covfefe Coffee would no longer be “giving money to our [political] opponents.”

Previously, Amazon terminated Covfefe Coffee’s ability to run advertisements on the platform. Initially, the company claimed that simply using an American flag as the backdrop to the coffee’s advertisements constituted a violation of Amazon’s rules against supporting a political candidate or cause.

After Covfefe Coffee redesigned their advertisements to appease the online retail giant, Amazon then determined that the brand’s use of “Make America Great Again!” in its advertising copy incited hate and would not be allowed.

After changing the verbiage of its listing, Covfefe Coffee was available on Amazon for less than a month before it was pulled entirely.

Correction: An earlier version of this story stated that Amazon has been unable to return the merchandise. This is true, however, Amazon now requires the company pay for its inventory to be returned or else it will be destroyed.

Department of Justice Sues Facebook for Discrimination Against Americans in Favor of H1B Visa Workers

Facebook discriminated against Americans.

Published

on

The Department of Justice filed a new lawsuit against Big Tech monopoly Facebook for engaging in pervasive and systemic discrimination against American workers, refusing to consider them for company positions and instead shepherding cheaper and more compliant foreign visa workers into more than 2,500 of the company’s high-paying jobs.

The Department of Justice alleges that Facebook created a category of employment offerings in which none or one American worker applied more than 99% of the time, and were almost never hired. Facebook didn’t advertise job opening it restricted to the “PERM” process on its careers website, instead exclusively recruiting visa workers.

According to the lawsuit, and based on the department’s nearly two-year investigation, Facebook intentionally created a hiring system in which it denied qualified U.S. workers a fair opportunity to learn about and apply for jobs that Facebook instead sought to channel to temporary visa holders Facebook wanted to sponsor for green cards.

The H-1B visa program is favorite of Big Tech, creating a class of employees who function as de facto indentured servants. H-1B workers are reliant on their employers for eventual American green cards, and leaving their jobs jeopardizes their immigration status. Some technology companies have been subject to large settlements for exploiting their bonded H-1B worker force.

The Department of Justice’s lawsuit alleges that Facebook engaged in intentional and widespread violations of the law, by setting aside positions for temporary visa holders instead of considering interested and qualified U.S. workers,” said Assistant Attorney General Eric S. Dreiband of the Civil Rights Division.

This lawsuit follows a nearly two-year investigation into Facebook’s practices and a ‘reasonable cause’ determination by the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. Our message to workers is clear: if companies deny employment opportunities by illegally preferring temporary visa holders, the Department of Justice will hold them accountable. Our message to all employers — including those in the technology sector — is clear: you cannot illegally prefer to recruit, consider, or hire temporary visa holders over U.S. workers.

The Department of Justice will seek civil penalties from Facebook on behalf of American workers discriminated against in the employment process, describing Facebook’s “discrimination against U.S. workers [as] intentional, widespread, and in violation” of immigration law.

Facebook has lobbied heavily in favor of raising annual visa workers levels, most recently boosting Senator Mike Lee’s proposal to remove per-country caps on H-1B visas. This will result in nearly all H-1B visas being given to nationals of a few large countries, such as India. Senator Lee succeeded in passing the migrant labor giveaway to Big Tech through the Senate on Wednesday.
