Howard Schultz, the current CEO of Starbucks, will step down from his role at the giant coffee chain next month. The move comes after his vow to hire thousands refugees in response to President Donald Trump´s first travel ban appeared to hurt customer sentiment and dent their sales. Trump supporters have called for a boycott of the chain since January 29, when Schultz vowed to hire 10,000 refugees over five years. Schultz in a letter to employees said the promise of the American Dream was ´being called into question´ and that ´the civility and human rights we have all taken
Exactly, #8. Not only is he staying around at Starbucks (not that I´d buy a cup on a bet!), but Schultz is going to run for President in 2020. By then he shall have awakened from his great Hillary Clinton slumber.
I still won´t buy anything from Starbucks. Anybody else think Schultz still has a little company stock? If the price rebounds now, he could stand to profit quite handsomely from the downturn caused by his anti-Trump gaffe.
Besides, I like both Java Beach and Peet´s better than Star*ucks.
Stopped going 2 years ago when the idiot Schulz asked the Baristas to "spread the liberal message". Spend my hard earned money to get lectured ?? The jerk never realized that the customer is always rigjt!!!
I went into a Starbucks once or twice, but could NOT bring myself to pay the prices they were demanding.
I note this ´Sergeant Schultz´ guy is not leaving, he is just moving to a different ´executive´ position within the company. "to Step Down" is not a true statement. The usual D-M disregard for the truth. Maybe their headline writers should read the article BEFORE writing the headline!
Political stances have consequences (as never before) the disenfranchised majority has been awakened and are buzzing about and not about to be led back to the hive while chaos is still being created by the left?
A couple of years ago I visited Canada and fell in love with Tim Horten´s coffee and muffins. Our northern states have Tims and I hop it spreads across the USA. I have never liked SB due to their politics and the sheep that line up to pay an enormous price because other sheep do so.
Congressional Republicans are attempting to guarantee workers the right to a secret ballot in union elections and allow members to more easily opt out of paying for union political activity after seeing the Obama administration and Democrats block previous efforts. Rep. Phil Roe (R., Tenn.), a member of the House Education and Workforce Committee introduced the Employee Rights Act, a bill that has previously failed to advance out of the House, on Thursday. Roe said that the it would serve to counteract many of the handouts given to organized labor by the Obama administration, including its revision of union election
New York photographer Scott Matthews realized while taking photos from his Upper West Side apartment window that, if he carefully charted the sun´s movement, he could twice a year take magnificently aligned photos of the sun and the Archangel Gabriel statue on top of Cathedral of St John the Divine; he dubbed the phenomenon Cathedralhenge. The summer solstice may be more closely associated with ancient pagan ritual and Stonehenge, but one New York City photographer enjoys a unique sun alignment view twice a year, too – from the window of his upper West Side apartment. It’s a phenomenon Scott Matthews
President Donald Trump honored those who lost their lives serving the nation as he participated in a solemn wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery Monday and told emotional stories of just a few who perished. ´Here at this hallowed shrine we honor the noblest among us – the men and the women who paid the ultimate price for victory and for freedom,´ Trump told a crowd of families, military personnel, and dignitaries at Arlington on Monday in his first Memorial Day speech as president. ´We pay tribute to those brave souls who raced into gunfire, roared into battle and ran
Several “associates” of White House Senior Adviser Jared Kushner tell the New York Times that President Donald Trump’s son-in-law was distressed during his Shabbat this weekend. The article — by Glenn Thrush, Maggie Haberman, and Sharon LaFraniere — describes Kushner as “fretful” during his religious day of rest: Over the past week, Mr. Kushner, who at age 36 occupies an ill-defined role somewhere between princeling and President Trump’s shadow chief of staff, has seen his foothold on that invaluable real estate shrink amid revelations he is under scrutiny in a federal investigation into whether there was collusion with Russian officials during
CNN’s W. Kamau Bell devoted a recent episode of his series United Shades of America to exploring Muslim and Arab communities. Aside from some interesting vignettes, the program is left-wing, anti-Trump propaganda that firmly establishes the network’s political bias. Bell also serves up some historical distortions of the sort spoonfed to undergraduates on politically-correct campuses, such as the claim that Islam has always been present in the U.S. “Islam has always been part of the American fabric,” one Muslim man in Detroit tells Bell at an anti-Trump event. “A lot of people think that Islam is from a foreign country,
It’s not just the press that are freaked out by Donald Trump. Talk show hosts and celebrities from Stephen Colbert to Robert DeNiro, Katy Perry and Rosie O’Donnell are losing their minds over the new president: DeNiro claimed Trump was worse than con-man Bernie Madoff: “He’s a pig”; Perry claimed Trump’s election brought “a lot of trauma for me”; Colbert infamously characterized Trump’s relationship with Vladimir Putin in the most obscene terms; and O’Donnell sounded like she was fomenting a revolution: “We have never had this kind of treasonous madness in power before. Desperate times - desperate measures.” And it’s
SAN FRANCISCO- The University of California Board of Regents spent tens of thousands of dollars on parties, including a $17,600 banquet the night before they voted in January to raise student tuition, according to a newspaper report Sunday. "I will be regrettably supporting the tuition increase, and I think that every single one of us in this room doesn´t want to raise tuition for our students," Regent Charlene Zettel said at the January meeting, according to CBS San Francisco station KPIX-TV. "It´s very painful for all of us." The office of UC President Janet Napolitano has reimbursed the regents for
A free-thinking group of eighth grades refused to pose with House Speaker Paul Ryan during a field trip to Washington DC on Thursday. Half of the students from South Orange Middle School in New Jersey stood on the other side of the street as their classmates had their photo taken with Ryan outside the United States Capitol. When he uploaded the image to Instagram, the ones who had refused to be in it flooded the comments section with insults and complaints. ´Half of us stood across the street including me because we hate you,´ said one. Another spoke to DailyMail.com
Earth is likely to reach more dangerous levels of warming even sooner if the U.S. retreats from its pledge to cut carbon dioxide pollution, scientists said. That’s because America contributes so much to rising temperatures. President Donald Trump, who once proclaimed global warming a Chinese hoax, said in a tweet Saturday that he would make his “final decision” this coming week on whether the United States stays in or leaves the 2015 Paris climate change accord in which nearly every nation agreed to curb its greenhouse gas emissions. Leaders of seven wealthy democracies, at a summit in Sicily, urged Trump
After entering the White House in 2009, President Barack Obama went on his famous “apology” tour. Now, Hillary Clinton, having failed to win the White House in 2016, is currently on an “I’m owed an apology” tour. In an interview for an article by New York Magazine published Friday, Clinton has apparently moved past “gracious Hillary” and “relaxed in the woods Hillary” and has now moved into “angry Hillary” mode. (Snip) In the New York Magazine article, called “Hillary Clinton Is Furious. And Resigned. And Funny. And Worried,” the predominant mood is the fury — not the resignation, worry, or her
Angela Merkel has stunningly claimed Europe can no longer rely on the US, just one day Donald Trump frustrated world leaders at the G7 meeting in Italy. The German Chancellor urged the European Union to stick together in the face of new uncertainty stemming from the US and other challenges. Merkel said Sunday at a campaign event in Bavaria: ´The times in which we can fully count on others are somewhat over, as I have experienced in the past few days.´ The comments came after the G7 countries were unable to agree to a deal that would see the 2015
(Video) Sunday on MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) said the public was “getting weary” that Democrats have not done enough to begin the process of impeaching President Donald Trump. Partial transcript as follows: REID: Congresswoman, on the subject of being more aggressive, you have openly talked about the fact that this president has put himself in a position where impeachment is on the table but your party, the Democratic party is very reluctant, The New York Times has an article out last week about how hesitant Democratic leadership, in particular, are to call for Donald Trump’s impeachment.

Hillary Clinton’s inner circle is concerned that the “resistance” that cropped up in the wake of President Donald Trump’s electoral win isn’t embracing the failed Democratic Presidential candidate as their de facto leader. As of late, Hillary has taken to marketing herself as the leader of the anti-Trump resistance, Tweeting about her defeat, haranguing Trump in public appearances and “persisting” despite her loss. It’s clear from Clinton’s Twitter feed, paid speeches, and comments that she wants to lead the mostly female opposition to Trump’s policy agenda. But according to sources close to Clinton’s inner circle, she’s yet again failing in
