10 reasons why you shouldn't shop at Costco

CostcoCostco, the membership discount supermarket, is the second-largest retailer in America.
Its founder and CEO Jim Sinegal has an estimated net worth of $2 billion and a salary of $350,000 per year.
Here are 10 reasons why you shouldn’t give your hard-earned money to Costco:
#10. Costco pulled conservative author and film-maker Dinesh D’Souza’s new book, America: Imagine A World Without Her. Costco later restored the books to its shelves, but only after customers had complained.
#9. Costco founder Jim Sinegal gave more than $20 million during the 2012 election cycle to Democrat politicians and issues.
#8. Over the course of Obama’s presidential career, Costco has given $100,000 to him and another $100,000 to Priorities USA, the pro-Obama super PAC.
#7. Sinegal wrote an email blast sent out by the Obama campaign in July 2012.
#6. In the same month, both Sinegal and Costco co-founder Jeffrey Brotman hosted fundraisers for Obama in their respective homes in Washington state.
#5. Sinegal even gave a speech at the 2012 Democratic National Convention — the one where DNC delegates three times rejected God.
#4. Susan Brotman, wife of Jeffrey, was an Obama bundler in 2012 who collected over $500,000 in campaign donations.
#3. Costco employees also vote Democratic: Only 5% of the $102,600 donated by Costco employees in the 2012 election cycle went to Republicans.

#2. Washington Post calls Costco’s support of Obama “the most successful union of a politician and a supermarket in American history.”

And the Number One reason why you shouldn’t shop at Costco is . . . .
#1. Costco knows Obama’s Connecticut-issued Social Security number is fraudulent but supports him anyway.
Costco not just uses, but takes pride in using the Department of Homeland Security’s E-Verify program to ensure their employees are eligible to work in the United States by screening documents of new hires against DHS and Social Security Administration (SSA) records. In fact Costco has this notice on their website:

“Federal law requires all employers to verify the identity and employment eligibility of all persons hired to work in the United States.”

On August 17, 2011, a Costco employee who had not voted for Obama, discovered Obama failed E-Verify. Here’s his/her account:

I ran Obama’s name, the SSN he uses, 042-68-4425 and the birth date he claims, through an E-Verify check and it came back flagged with a Special Indicator Code (SIC) for fraud . . . special indicator #8 which identifies an SSN that was determined to have been assigned based on fraudulent documents or no documents and is only given after an Office of Inspector General (OIG) investigation.
We know Obama put that number on his forged Selective Service registration in 2008, we know he used it when he filed his tax return in 2010, and we know that as of March 2012, long after I ran the E-Verify check, he was still using it.
We also know that this SSN was not issued to Barack Obama. It was issued to someone with a Connecticut address in March 1977.
Where was Obama in March 1977? He was a fifteen year old attending high school in Hawaii! He never lived in Connecticut or traveled to Connecticut as a teenager.
What document do you have to provide to the SSA to prove citizenship when applying for a SSN? A birth certificate.
Someone who uses a stolen SSN, one that he obtained without providing any documentation of age or citizenship, does so because they don’t have a birth certificate that would prove they are a U.S. citizen. They don’t have a birth certificate that would qualify them for a SSN. They plain don’t have one or the one they have identifies them as a citizen of another country.
On April 27th, 2011 Barack Obama posted a forged birth certificate on the White House website. That forgery explains why Obama is using a stolen SSN. […]
Costco employs over 140,000 people and yet the person they advocated to occupy the highest office in the land, Barack Obama, failed E-Verify. Costco demands that their employees prove their citizenship and/or eligibility status but fails to hold their man in the White House to the same standard.

Note: The Costco employee is not the first to discover that Obama fails E-Verify. In 2011, a researcher in Seattle, Washington named Linda Jordan ran the SSN Barack Obama had used on his 2010 tax return through E-Verify and discovered that the SSN had been flagged with a Special Indicator Code for fraud. It was not Obama’s SSN. Since then she has continued to work to expose Obama’s use of forged identity documents that he used to get on the ballot and in to the White House. She is the owner of We The People T.V. at obamasfakeid.com.

The lobbying has been going on for decades. So much so that I came to believe that the corporations own the politicians. Then I figured that we don’t have capitalism; What we really have is a form of CORPORATE FASCISM. Now it hits me: THERE IS NO GOVERNMENT: All we have are banks and corporations.

I cut up my card. But last year they had really nice battery operated candles for the windows. I guess I will have to shop on line.

Fine. Don’t shop at Costco. But be true to yourselves. All the oil corporations support the NWO, as do all banks. All auto makers, all investment houses, politicians of both the ‘conservative’ (whatever that word means today) and ‘liberal’ (ditto) persuasion – esp. those elected to national office – support your enslavement. Coke, Pepsi, General Foods, Nestle. Of course Monsanto. All look at your children as nothing more than dollar signs or bodies to wage war against people like you and I. The system has been corrupted. Right V Left no longer matters. You are being debased by every last… Read more »

Don’t shop there, never will. I don’t do Sam’s either, since I refuse to pay a company for the “privilege” of spending money there.

Good article and may I add, use caution if you decide on their products. They have been caught with some products not being pure,such as maple syrup and olive oil and others. I am not big on the GMO products either.
We had been backing off, but the book banning finished us, haven’t been back.

Thank you Dr. Eowyn. I did not know this. Costco will no longer see any of my shopping dollars.

Never cared for the place anyway. Their prices aren’t that great…not much of if any better than a regular store. Definitely won’t becoming a member. I have Cash ‘n Carry if I wanna buy in bulk.

I’ve noticed a lot of limp-wristed employees at Costco, too.
Oooh. Gross!!

Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this interesting post. Keeping the facts in mind, we should boycott them economically.

COSTCO eliminated AMEX cards and substituted CITIcards – what an abortion this has been. Hour long on-hold music, very poor service compared to AMEX which was outstanding. Whenever they got a good product, it would usually be gone in a few weeks and some inferior product would replace it. example chicken cordon bleu, an outstanding item gone. Chicken pot pies gummy crust, little filling and marginal taste – they seem to have a permanent freezer location.
