Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz said Democratic mayors and city councils have ‘abdicated their responsibility’ in fighting crime and addressing mental illness, which has forced his company to shutter stores due to fears over employee safety.

How ironic is it that Far Left Starbucks is being forced to start shuttering stores in cities across America that are run by Democrats because the streets have become too violent and the safety of Starbucks workers cannot be guaranteed? This is what you get when wokeness is in charge, you get anarchy, violence, poverty and death. But it’s a really good real world illustration of what Socialism can do for you.

“But the liberal deviseth liberal things; and by liberal things shall he stand.” Isaiah 32:8 (KJB)

If wokeism was a good thing, when people and companies embrace it they should prosper, but they don’t, they collapse and fall into ruin. Cities like Chicago, Portland and Seattle have become literal hellholes, turning once-thriving areas into block after block of burned out and shut down cautionary tales. Starbucks has long been anti-cop, anti-Israel and anti-Christian, on top of that their coffee tastes terrible. If terrorism had a flavor, it’d be Starbucks nasty, burnt-tasting coffee. Wouldn’t bother me a bit if all of their stores closed tomorrow. I’ll take Maxwell House anytime.

Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz blames Dem-run cities for store closures

FROM THE NY POST: Schultz made the comments in leaked video that was posted to Twitter over the weekend by Ari Hoffman of KVI-AM talk radio based in Seattle. Last week, Starbucks announced it was closing 16 restaurants in various cities across the country due to what the company said was employee complaints of drug use and violent crime on the premises. Schultz said he believes the Seattle-based coffee chain will have to close “many more” locations.

“This is just the beginning,” said the interim chief executive, who came back to run the company earlier this year following the retirement of his predecessor, Kevin Johnson. “There are gonna be many more store closures.”

The leaked video of Schultz shows him addressing Starbucks employees. He told them that the company was “beginning to close stores that are not unprofitable.” Schultz said he was “shocked” to hear from employees that “one of the primary concerns that our retail partners [baristas] have is their own personal safety.”

“And then we heard about the stories that go along with it about what happens in our bathrooms,” Schultz said.

In 2018, Starbucks implemented an “open bathrooms” policy after a store manager had two black men arrested for not ordering coffee while sitting down in a Philadelphia location. Video of the arrest went viral, and Starbucks apologized following intense backlash. Now the company is giving store managers discretion to alter the policy due to complaints that Starbucks bathrooms are a magnet for drug abusers and homeless people.

In the video leaked over the weekend, Schultz cited the “issues of mental illness, homelessness, and crime.”

“Starbucks is a window into America,” Schultz said. “We are facing things in which the stores were not built for.”

Schultz then took Democrat-run cities to task for not providing solutions.

“In my view, at the local, state, and federal level, these governments across the country and leaders — mayors, governors, and city councils — have abdicated their responsibility in fighting crime and addressing mental illness,” he said. READ MORE

Woke Starbucks Closing 16 Stores As Crazed Liberals Force Shutdowns

People are suggesting there is a “dose of instant karma” as Starbucks is set to close 16 stores across the United States by the end of July due to safety concerns, says Sky News host Rita Panahi.

As Joe Biden Prepares For His ‘Dignified Exit’ Will Kamala Harris And Michelle Obama Be The Ones The Democrats Put Their Faith In To Win It?

As pretend Joe Biden bows out, will Kamala Harris and perhaps Michelle Obama be the ones Democrats choose to replace him in 2024?

4 years ago, we wrote an article speculating that Joe Biden would be unable to finish his first term, and that he would be replaced by Michelle Obama. Here in the middle of 2024, Joe Biden is doing exactly that, and as you read these, he is being replaced as candidate, and possibly, removed from office via the 25th Amendment. We are in the ‘rabbit hole’ right now, the only question is how deep does it go? We will defer to the prophet Habakkuk on that one.

“Behold ye among the heathen, and regard, and wonder marvellously: for I will work a work in your days, which ye will not believe, though it be told you.” Habakkuk 1:5 (KJB)

For the past three and a half years, Barack Obama and his minions have been the ones actually pulling the strings in the Biden administration, and from his perspective, it’s been a wonderfully productive third term. But Obama and his handlers are not ready to vacate power, and are planning to do everything, and anything, to be able to keep it. If I were Donald Trump, I would invest in a really nice Kevlar sport coat. Immediately would be about right. Kamala in the spotlight on the moment, but keep your eye on Michelle Obama, that’s who the Democrats will run if they really want to win.

VP Kamala Harris top choice to replace Biden in election race if he steps aside, and what about Michelle Obama?

FROM YAHOO! NEWS: Vice President Kamala Harris is the top alternative to replace U.S. President Joe Biden if he decides not to continue his reelection campaign, according to seven senior sources at the Biden campaign, the White House and the Democratic National Committee with knowledge of current discussions on the topic.

Biden’s fumbling, sometimes-incoherent and widely-panned first-debate performance against Republican rival Donald Trump last week set off a wave of panic within the Democratic party over concerns that he may not be fit enough to serve a second term, and prompted calls for top aides to resign.

Some influential Democrats have floated alternatives to Biden besides Harris, including popular cabinet members and Democratic governors like Gavin Newsom from California, Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan and Josh Shapiro of Pennsylvania. But trying to sidestep Harris is wishful thinking and would be nearly impossible, these sources, who did not wish to be named, said.

If named as the party nominee, Harris, 59, would take over money raised by the Biden campaign and inherit campaign infrastructure, the sources said. She also has the highest name recognition among all the alternatives, and the highest polling among Democrats who could seriously be considered a candidate, the sources said.

In a Reuters/Ipsos poll published Tuesday, Harris trailed Trump by one percentage point at 42% to 43%, a difference that was well within the poll’s 3.5 percentage point margin of error, a showing statistically just as strong as Biden’s.

In addition, she has already been vetted for national office and has survived intense scrutiny from Republicans, they said. Also, U.S. Representative Jim Clyburn, the man who was key to Biden’s 2020 win, told MSNBC he would support Harris to be the Democratic nominee if Biden stepped aside.

“It’s pretty near impossible to win the nomination over the vice president,” said Michael Trujillo, a Democratic strategist from California who worked for Hillary Clinton’s campaign in 2008 and 2016.

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said on Tuesday that Biden just had a “bad night” at the debate and would continue to make his case for reelection to the American people. The Biden campaign deferred to Harris’s team for comment on the story. Harris’s aides dismissed any talk of a Democratic ticket that doesn’t include both Biden and Harris. “Vice President Harris looks forward to serving a second term with President Joe Biden,” a statement from her office said.

Biden’s campaign has amassed 3,894 delegates after state primaries, leaving only a few dozen “uncommitted” delegates outstanding. They are expected to formally nominate Biden later this month in a virtual meeting, ahead of the Democrats’ nominating convention in August.

“All of the delegates are not just Joe Biden delegates, they are Kamala Harris delegates,” Trujillo said, adding “she will have a sizable delegation and support in all 50 states on day one,” he said. READ MORE

Black Lives Matter

The Woke Liberals That Control Lincoln Center In Manhattan Have Replaced Their Annual ‘Mostly Mozart’ Festival With Drag Queen Duets And BLM Offerings

Published

SHARE NOW THE END BEGINS:

In the case of Lincoln Center, this distortion of the historical record to satisfy the whims of identity-obsessed elites has distorted reality itself and undermined a historic institution, Mozart and all.

As a child, my mother insisted that I was exposed to classical music and that took the form of beginning piano lessons at the age of 9 and violin lesson shortly thereafter. I started with the basics and then was introduced to the classical masters like Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Brahms and the rest. But the music of Mozart was different, it had a strength and power that seemed to put it into its own classification of music. Mozart has been called the greatest composer of all time, and rightly so. But even the great Mozart cannot stand up to the hordes of Black Lives Matter revolutionaries who insist on erasing everything that does not align itself with their Marxist theology. Ladies and gentlemen, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart has been cancelled. What is his crime? He’s too talented, and he’s too white.

“Behold their sitting down, and their rising up; I am their musick.” Lamentations 3:63 (KJB)

How well I remember back in the 1970’s, being taken to New York City by my parents for a night of ‘classics and culture’ at Lincoln Center. My mother loved their ‘Mostly Mozart’ festival, and I grew to love it, too. We came from a small, little town, located the rural foothills of old New Jersey, but mom insisted on a little culture if only to balance out the incessant watching of Monday Night Football my dad and I would do. (years later I would get saved in part from reading the John 3:16 signs displayed whenever points were scored). Now Lincoln Center, that great bastion of culture and classical music, has jettisoned Mozart in favor of events like drag queen duets and the Kumbia Queers Live that looks as bad as it sounds. Lincoln Center has drunk the Kool-Aid, becoming a mouthpiece for the various anarchist groups that continue to plague this country. Racism in America will never, ever end, because the Liberals that control the media and our government will not allow it to end. It is their main weapon to refashion society as they prepare to receive the coming Antichrist. That’s the memo.

Lincoln Center cancels Mozart and goes woke — based on a historical lie

FROM THE NY POST: When Black Lives Matter becomes a marketing strategy, facts offer little impediment to speaking “one’s truth.” Take the case of New York’s Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, which banked its pandemic recovery on a narrative of its own abhorrence.

In 2020, the center began promoting a story that a vibrant black community known as San Juan Hill had been deliberately snuffed out in the 1950s to make way for its creation.

“The displacement of Indigenous, Black, and Latinx families that took place prior to the construction of our campus is abhorrent,” declares the center’s “Message on Our Commitment to Change.”

“We may never know its full impact on those dispossessed of the land on which Lincoln Center sits. But only by acknowledging this history can we begin to confront the racism from which our institution has benefited.”

With the blood-and-soil essentialism of today’s identity politics, this commitment fell in line with the new progressive rhetoric of land acknowledgments, colonialist dispossession and unearthed legacies of systemic oppression.

The story was also left unchallenged by the many news sources that repeated it.

For the racial pathologists, the center’s four-block campus obviously owed its existence to the destruction of a historic black neighborhood, paving over those “Indigenous, Black, and Latinx families” with white travertine and white culture.

These days, such self-abnegation offers a chance for our managerial class to treat their organizations’ supposed pathologies with a patent mixture of tinctures, elixirs and balms. For Lincoln Center’s leadership, this has meant attacking from within an institution largely dedicated to the culture of the West by developing programming and even a new campus plan based around this original sin of race-based displacement.

In consequence, last summer the center canceled its “Mostly Mozart” festival in favor of more “inclusive” fare — sponsoring rappers, pop groups and an LGBTQ mariachi band while hanging a 10-foot-wide disco ball above its fountain.

This summer’s programming, just announced, will lead off with “the debut duet of two superstar queens from the blockbuster reality competition ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race,’” followed by “Argentinian queercore,” comedians of “Indian heritage” and “silent disco.”

Shanta Thake, the center’s chief artistic officer, pledged to “really confront our past head-on as we move into the future” by “opening this up and really saying that this is music that belongs to everyone” — implying, of course, that Mozart does not belong to everyone. Yet as with much of today’s racialized mythology, this new battle of San Juan Hill has been a story of wishful thinking. There indeed was a time when this area was a nexus of black New York. But its cultural height had come and gone long before Robert Moses turned his attention to redeveloping this outmoded and fire-prone section of the West Side.

By then, the “entire area was in an advanced state of decay,” according to the city.

The Lincoln Square Renewal Project of 1955 was remarkable not for the 17 blocks it cleared but for what was created in its place: a Manhattan campus for Fordham University, a new headquarters for the American Red Cross, 4,000 units of middle-income housing and a home for multiple performing-arts organizations of world renown.

As Lincoln Center took ownership of its parcel, it kept close tabs on the residents it helped relocate. Most of them remained in Manhattan, with 900 families staying on the Upper West Side. A study of the first 742 relocated showed that they mainly moved into larger quarters, all with up-to-date sanitary conditions.

Most notably, for all the “abhorrent” claims of the “displacement of Indigenous, Black, and Latinx families,” an internal census revealed a population that was, in fact, overwhelmingly white, with a ratio of three to one, while the area’s black population was in the single percentage points.

As it turns out, Lincoln Center’s self-accusation has been nothing more than a false confession. The year 2020 deserves a reckoning in more ways than one, but the race hustling in our institutions is a good place to start. In the case of Lincoln Center, this distortion of the historical record to satisfy the whims of identity-obsessed elites has distorted reality itself and undermined a historic institution, Mozart and all.

The sheer magnitude of Mozart’s musical output is staggering, considering his short life of 35 years. While the exact number of compositions is uncertain, it is believed to be at least 626. His manuscripts are remarkably free of errors; appearing as if they were laid out in divine perfection in his mind. The Symphony No. 1 in E♭ major, K. 16, is a symphony written in 1764 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart at the age of eight!

Pro-Hamas Supporters Funded By George Soros Launched A ‘Global Strike For Gaza’ To Shut Down Highways Across America For Hours Today

Published

SHARE NOW THE END BEGINS:

Pro-Hamas protesters in dozens of cities across America are participating in the ‘Global Strike for Gaza’ and ‘Stop The World For Gaza’ today, funding comes from George Soros

All across America today, frustrated commuters were stopped for hours by Pro-Hamas supporters who united to ‘stop the world for Gaza’ by blocking access to major roads and bridges in dozens of cities. This is not free speech, this is really not a protest, this is soft terrorism on a mass scale much like the ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter riots in the summer of 2020 were. These anarchist groups receive money from the Third Wave Fund, which itself is funded by Proteus, which is funneled money through the many-headed hydra that is George Soros. It’s not about Gaza, it’s about fomenting civil war.

“When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.” Proverbs 29:2 (KJB)

Living here in the free state of Florida, we don’t have a whole lot of experience with terror-supporting groups locking arms and preventing the forward flow of traffic. I have watch multiple times as Black Lives Matter have reared their ugly heads, but as far as I know, they’ve never tried to commandeer the streets. They get away with this garbage because the Obama administration, operating covertly under ‘front man’ Joe Biden, allows it, protects it and encourages it. These mass protests have almost nothing to do with ‘free speech’ and everything to do with anarchy and rebellion. And speaking of Gaza, I stand with the Jews, pray for the safety of Israel and for the peace of Jerusalem. Am Yisrael Chai. There, I picked my side, now you pick yours.

Pro-Hamas Supporters Blocking American Roads and Bridges ‘for Gaza’

FROM THE NATIONAL REVIEW: In Chicago, protesters organized by a group called Chicago Dissenters blocked the access road to O’Hare International Airport at around 8:30 a.m. to protest Boeing, which sells military equipment to Israel. Activists posted videos on social media of irritated airline customers walking along the shut-down road with luggage in tow.

Some of the comments on the post mocked “the privilege of being annoyed” and being “inconvenienced by having to walk to your flight while Palestinians are being murdered.” All of the participants in the blockade were masked.

They’re attempting to effect economic blockades to coincide with Tax Day. Iran’s attack on Israel this weekend didn’t deter the pro-Palestinian groups from holding the already-planned events.

The Dissenters are nationally funded by grants from the Third Wave Fund, an activist group started in 1992 to mobilize young radical feminists which has since shifted its focus to resourcing and supporting “youth-led, intersectional gender justice activism.” The Dissenters were given a “Mobilize Power Fund” grant in November 2023 to support “safety and security measures among their membership as part of their organizing to free Palestine.” As an aside, it’s worth mentioning that, along with aiding the “Free Palestine” movement, Third Wave Fund also finances a “Sex Worker Giving Circle,” which is “a diverse range of sex worker-led groups throughout the country and bringing current and former sex workers to the philanthropic decision-making table.”

Protesters have also blocked off Lockheed Martin in Virginia, the Golden Gate Bridge in California, the Newburgh-Beacon Bridge in New York, and numerous highways and airports. I’m glad to see these activists putting themselves on display. Every one of these events publicizes how cowardly and extreme pro-Hamas activists are, hiding behind masks and hurling obscenities. With every demonstration since October 7, their signs have gotten more extreme, their chants more vile.

In October, protesters’ calls for “cease-fire” were almost knee-jerk; now the activists are cheering on Iranian missile attacks with glee and waving Hezbollah’s flag triumphantly. Full-throttle sympathy for terrorism was always the endgame, as we’ve written many times. Anyone who thought that calls for a cease-fire didn’t also mean the denial of Israel’s right to exist now have an array of evidence proving otherwise. READ MORE
