after his anti-Trump vow to hire 10,000
refugees backfired, provoked a boycott by
Donald supporters and hit sales

Daily Mail (UK), by Cheyenne Roundtree

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

The terminlogy is mudddled. It´s illegal immigrants that are the issue to me, not legitimate refugees. And illegals are probably what he meant.

I hope we never renounce the spirit of Lady Liberty, which has been a beacon of hope and transcendence around the world for many decades.

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.

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!

Republican leaders canceled a vote in the House on the plan to replace ObamaCare Thursday, after leadership´s attempts to lobby enough votes apparently failed -- a major setback for House Speaker Paul Ryan and President Trump. Trump and Republican leaders had spent much of the day scrambling to get both moderates and conservatives on board with the increasingly unpopular legislation. Ryan postponed his press conference twice as he worked with House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy R-Calif., Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., and Chief Deputy Whip Patrick McHenry, R-N.C., to get enough votes to get the American Healthcare Act through the

We´ve seen two more "Known Wolf" terror attacks in the West, and yet Western government authorities seem unwilling to acknowledge, let alone begin to address, the "Known Wolf" terror problem. I first identified the "Known Wolf" terror trend and coined the term in October 2014 here at PJ Media, noting that many, possibly most, Islamic terrorists who actually committed terrorism in the West were already known to Western law enforcement, national security agencies, and intelligence services. Yet sufficient action was not taken to prevent them from conducting terror attacks: (Tweet) Since then, I´ve chronicled (in nearly two dozen articles) the

The Washington Post´s Bob Woodward warned on Wednesday that there are people from the Obama administration who could be facing criminal charges for unmasking the names of Trump transition team members from surveillance of foreign officials. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., said earlier that he had briefed Trump on new information, unrelated to an investigation into Russian activities, that suggested that several members of Trump´s transition team and perhaps Trump himself had their identities "unmasked" after their communications were intercepted by U.S. intelligence officials. The revelation is notable because identities of Americans are generally supposed to remain

According to Politico, even though there are Democrats standing firm against Gorsuch because of how Merrick Garland was treated, there are some attempting to get concessions as part of a deal: The deal Democrats would be most likely to pursue, the sources said, would be to allow confirmation of Gorsuch in exchange for a commitment from Republicans not to kill the filibuster for a subsequent vacancy during President Donald Trump’s

Sears is on the verge of declaring bankruptcy. All department stores have faced increased competition from Amazon.com, but Sears is out of cash and about to fail. Why?

Last week, the British intelligence agency GCHQ took the rare step of debunking as “utterly ridiculous” the Trump administration’s insinuation that Britain spied on Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign. On Monday, FBI Director James B. Comey testified plainly that “I have no information that supports” President Trump’s accusations that his predecessor ordered the “wires tapped” at Trump Tower. These false statements from the White House are part of a disturbing pattern of behavior that poses real and potentially profound dangers to U.S. national security.

A group of Senate Democrats is beginning to explore trying to extract concessions from Republicans in return for allowing Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch to be confirmed, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter. The lawmakers worry that Gorsuch could be confirmed whether Democrats try to block him or not — and Democrats would be left with nothing to show for it. That would be a bitter pill after the GOP blocked Merrick Garland for nearly a year. The deal Democrats would be most likely to pursue, the sources said, would be to allow confirmation of Gorsuch in exchange for a

The family of Seth Rich, a staffer for the Democratic National Committee who was murdered last July in Washington, D.C., has launched a crowdfunding page to raise money for investigating the unsolved case. Aaron Rich, the brother of the victim, created the GoFundMe page on Sunday to draw attention to the unsolved crime that took place July 10 in the Bloomingdale neighborhood of Northwest D.C. and raise $200,000. "One thing that no one tells you, and something we weren´t prepared to hear when we lost Seth, is that if a case isn´t solved immediately, it could take months or years before

Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. on Tuesday said he and his estranged wife Sandi Jackson are $1.8 million in debt thanks to legal bills from their federal criminal prosecution and mounting fees from an acrimonious divorce playing out in courtrooms in two cities. Jackson Jr. talked to reporters during an at-times rambling question-and-answer session following a brief hearing in his divorce case at the Daley Center, opining on the state of Washington politics and the best way to settle the couple’s bills. Neither Jackson nor his wife, former alderman Sandi Jackson, has worked since their release from prison after serving sentences

As Republicans hail Judge Neil Gorsuch as an "outstanding" Supreme Court nominee, Democrats are lining up against him for partisan reasons. "My view is very simple," Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) told a news conference on Tuesday. "And that is, there is a cloud now hanging over the head of the president, and while that´s happening, to have a lifetime appointment made by this president seems unseemly, and there ought to be delay." (Video) (Earlier Tuesday, in remarks on the Senate floor, Schumer said it would be "unseemly" to move forward so fast with confirming Gorsuch while the "gray

British Lawmaker Lord Digby Jones does not believe the religion of the London attacker is pertinent, The Washington Post reports. Jones comments come in the wake of a tweet by Donald Trump Jr. criticizing London Mayor Sadiq Khan for once telling citizens that terrorist attacks are “part and parcel” part of living in a big city. Some British lawmakers drew offense from the tweet, saying Trump was attacking the mayor in the midst of a terrorist situation. “You’re safer in London than you’ve ever been,” Jones declared. He continued, “If this turns out to be an act of Islamic terrorism,

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer called for a delay of Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation on Tuesday given the ongoing FBI investigation into potential collusion between President Donald Trump’s campaign and Russian officials. “You can bet, if the shoe were on the other foot and a Democratic president was under investigation by the FBI, the Republicans would be howling at the moon about filling a Supreme Court seat in such circumstances,” Schumer said on the floor. Schumer’s demand is highly unlikely to gain traction with Senate GOP leaders, who are planning a vote on Gorsuch early next month. But the move

Washington -- Communications of Donald Trump´s transition officials - possibly including the incoming president himself - may have been scooped up in legal surveillance but then improperly distributed throughout the intelligence community, the chairman of the House intelligence committee said Wednesday. In an extraordinary set of statements to reporters, Republican Rep. Devin Nunes said the intercepted communications do not appear to be related to the ongoing FBI investigation into Trump associates´ contacts with Russia or any criminal warrants. Nunes, who served on Trump´s transition team, said he believes the intelligence collections were done legally but that identities of Trump officials and the
