1. Makes sense.

There’s potential for major destabilization. That impacts the economy.

3. He's a financial liability now

Besides, he already gave them a huge tax cut and now his value is worthless. Nothing personal.

8. No Koch brothers I see

NBA and WNBA are the only pro sports leagues to sign.

It'd be nice to see a pledge by all the signatories that they won't make contributions to any politician supporting challenging the electors or PACs/committess, etc that are designed to support them.

10. No Axios Media or jim Vandehei. The Kochs invested heavily

in the Axios startup, which began as a major media player.

13. They bought Trump a seat in the Oval Office by simply tweaking a few key votes

He gave them the BIG Tax Break while America starved & died, lost businesses & homes.

How many of them also stood 1st in line at the trough, for the billion dollar Pandemic give-away?

Now they've "never heard of him" ??

Boils your blood don't it! aaaaaggghhh!!

14. I find this reassuring. It suggests that there are, indeed, limits in scope and longevity...

... to Trumpism.

I wonder what the criteria were and the methods they used to gather signatures? I thought it might be that they were headquartered in NYC, but Microsoft sure isn't. But the headline says "New York Business Leaders."

Does anyone have a back story on this?

15. This is all I could find on this story, but here's a similar take on the Republlcans who once ....

who once backed Trump and the Tea Party, yet now denounce the hell they created.

Interesting read.
The detonation of a ticking time bomb:
At the root of Trump's madness is the gleeful cooperation of Republicans who are now alarmed

Jan 5, 2021

https://www.reclaimthefight.com/2021/01/trump-ticking-time-bomb-tea-party-paul-ryan-gop.html?m=1


SNIP

For the uninitated, Paul Ryan was supposed to be the original ring leader of the nationalist Republican coalition Trump has now hypnotized. Ryan was instrumental in nourishing the Tea Party that galvanized with predominantly racist motives to oppose President Obama and question his citizenship.

SNIP
Every Republican who is now correctly angry at their colleagues for helping Trump's attempt to steal the election, to a person, willingly shattered the very norms they themselves created in order to ram through Donald Trump's agenda when they liked it. Their actions have consequences.

They may have done it because it served their policy agendas, but as these Republicans shattered norms, covered up lawbreaking, and built a firewall around the Constitutional violations of Donald Trump, they gave permission to their base to ignore democracy so long as someone defends their political interests. Through their own actions, they told their party that ends justified the means, that reverance for the process was weakness, that their political adversaries were their blood enemies, and the only thing that mattered was winning. They taught their base that all that mattered is whether you are on their team, which is Trump's team.

Once again, I am glad that some Republican leaders and officeholders are speaking out and worrying about the effects of Trump's corrosive attacks against democracy both on the republic and on their own party. But Donald Trump and his cult weren't created in a day; they are a ticking time bomb that first started ticking with the Tea Party.

So the Republicans who are concerned now must re-examine their own role in lighting a match and throwing into the cloud of ignitable gas, and they must determine never to repeat the mistakes of placing a man over the republic, placing team over democracy.
I fear that they will not."

When others hear from enough investors and clients. The flak on Trump's phone call is growing.
