Former Presidential Hopeful and Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz Makes Endorsement

The former CEO of Starbucks and a former presidential hopeful who toyed with the idea of making an independent run for president has now endorsed Joe Biden and promises he will contribute to the campaign.

According to Fox Business:

“In my view, our choice this November is not just for one candidate over another,” Schultz wrote in a letter to supporters. “We are choosing to vote for the future of our republic.”   Schultz went on to say, “What is at risk is democracy itself: Checks and balances. Rigorous debate. A free press. An acceptance of facts, not ‘alternate facts.’ Belief in science. Trust in the rule of law. A strong judicial system. Unity in preserving all of our rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

Taking aim at President Trump‘s repeated attacks on voting by mail – which many Americans feel is a safer option due to health concerns over in-person voting at polling stations amid the coronavirus pandemic – Schultz stressed that it’s “essential that Americans turn out to vote, that every American is able to vote safely, whether by mail or in person, and that every vote is counted. It would be a grave miscalculation to think this election is secured for a Biden victory.”   He highlighted that he’s “supporting nonpartisan initiatives to defend the legitimacy of our elections and ensure that the winner is not declared in the presidential contest until all votes are tallied.”

Schultz mulled an independent White House run at the beginning of 2019, and hired some veteran political advisers. He took part in a primetime Fox News town hall in April of last year. But five months later, Schultz officially cut the cord on any presidential bid, saying at the time that he didn’t want to be a spoiler for the eventual Democratic nominee.

In his letter, Schultz spotlighted two of his organizations that he and his wife Sheri are using to “help to build a more moral, more decent America.”

Schultz no longer serves as the CEO of the controversial coffee chain but continues to interject himself into politics.

President Trump famously ripped Howard Schultz in 2019:

Liberals were upset at Schultz’s apparent entrance into the 2020 fray, but their backlash wasn’t enough to dissuade Schultz from endorsing Biden.

EDITOR’S Question: Starbucks is a controversial business. Will this endorsement make you rethink giving Starbucks your business or were you shopping somewhere else before this? Let us know in the comments below!

Independent? That’s a laugh and a half. There is no way you will find an Independent among the executives of one of America’s most leftist corporations.

But there’s a perfectly logical explanation. Biden has been in a political office for his entire life. He’s never had a job outside of politics. That makes him the absolute worst candidate for the office of president the Democrats could drag out of their swamp.

The Democrats seem to pride themselves on being destroyers of nations.

Howard, they have to be brain dead to vote for Biden. If we elect Trump, they only have to wait 4 years to make a change; if we elect Biden, the destruction by him and his liberal leftist party will be with us forever and we may NEVER get our country back.

It’s all about the MONEY, POWER, and CONTROL. If…. (and that is a BIG “IF) biden gets fraudulently voted in like the democommunists have been openly opining,, prepare yourselves for a country “ruled” by TYRANNY and COMMUNIST CONTROL.
Hiding biden in MY opinion, won’t last much more past his inauguration, he will “mysteriously” develop a ” medical problem”,(like he has already), have an “accident” or “commit suicide” and the “HO” the “anchor baby” (that is not even eligible”) will assume command.

I just watched Biden give a speech in which all he talked about was climate change and the wildfires! He never once mentioned, that I heard, the two officers in California who are fighting for their lives because a marxist BLM or antifa (one is as bad as the other) attempted to assassinate them as they sat unaware they were being approached…….from behind, the way cowards attack!
Biden and the Dems don’t realize they are not doing themselves a favor with the American people by supporting these marxist terrorists! Old saying….birds of a feather flock together, YES? YES!

I guess he doesn’t seem to realize that under socialism nobody will have enough money to frequent his coffee houses. They will go bankrupt. It is amazing that a billionaire is so shortsighted. But then again, he has enough money to move to another country after this one is destroyed.

Schultz is right when he says that “what is at stake is Democracy itself”. But then he absolutely contradicts himself by endorsing Biden!!! The entire Democratic platform has one purpose and one purpose only — to DESTROY Democracy and change our entire nation to one of SOCIALISM!! (Socialism = Communism) If Biden and the Democrats gain the White House AND Congress, you can kiss our Democracy and our Republic GOODBYE!!! “Free Press”??? Like the “free press” of Cuba — and Venezuela — and Nicaragua??? OPEN YOUR EYES!!! PAY ATTENTION TO HISTORY AND LEARN FROM IT!!!

Actually Schultz made a n error on his statement but wanted to be correct for his buddies. Every American voting cannot be allowed.
Everyone is not a citizen of the United States and only citizens are legally allowed to vote. Those in power are not the only people that can use politically correct language to confuse issues. That brings up that court on allowing illegal persons to be counted for political reasons. If they cannot vote then why count them to redistrict for the purpose of obtaining more seats in the house?

Anyone endorsing a tired, senile old man who is guarded, coached, led around, and protected from real interviews and questions every day only reflects on their own stupidity and willingness to destroy our country by the Marxists pulling the strings in the background. Listening to people like him, Bezos, Bloomberg, and the rest of the billionaires fail to understand they will be left holding the consequences why these billionaires can go and live anywhere in the world or by their own island.

Poor old Slow Joe Hidin’ Biden is being used as a puppet by cult leader Pelosi! The only thing is, her age and alcohol induced dementia has her faculties hitting on two cylinders! She is no more competent to be Speaker than the bottle she emptied last night! But……..she is Speaker with all that power and she is mentally incompetent! That makes her a dangerous commodity, operating on a raging hate for DJT! Her every thought and deed is what can she do to “one up” DJT……Pelosi’s mind is not on what can she do to work with the Republicans to get things done for Americans, NO, she is reduced to a petty spiteful angry hysterical old woman with one thing on her mind and in her heart….she will die trying to destroy DJT! She is a disgrace to her party but more importantly……to America!
Pelosi will not do her job for the American people! She should be removed from her duties as Speaker!

 “We are choosing to vote for the future of our republic.” Schultz went on to say, “What is at risk is democracy itself: Checks and balances. Rigorous debate. A free press. An acceptance of facts, not ‘alternate facts.’ Belief in science. Trust in the rule of law. A strong judicial system. Unity in preserving all of our rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

I hope he figures out that a vote for Biden/Harris is the antithesis of this.

Is there a single person who is able to walk and chew gum at the same time even remotely surprised by this endorsement? No…….I didn’t think so! Starbucks employees have for years felt comfortable with systemic bias and even abuse against our wonderful members of law enforcement! Starbucks employees have seen fit to refuse service and/or ask police already seated to leave, given cops poor and/or disrespectful service, put nasty unspeakable things in their beverages to include-chewed gum, foreign objects, spittle, nose mucus, and etc. Yes, this has been done to police officers who are called immediately to rescue and save these bigots, and do the police respond……YES, just as fast as is humanly possible! Why…..because police are not political and what a shame Starbucks and employees cannot enjoy the same claim to fame!
Starbucks is a national disgrace and as much as I enjoy a good cup of coffee, I would NEVER drink another cup if Starbucks was the only corporation selling it!
BOYCOTT STARBUCKS!

Joe Biden as president would go into PASSIVIST mode, withdraw into the White House bunker and HOPE that the Chinese, North Koreans, Russians and Iranians don’t attack the USA for 4 years because they would have NO CLUE as to what to do. Putin made a fool of Biden when he came to Russia by causing his teleprompter to break down, reducing Biden to a bumbling idiot, unable to form a sentence. Then he would do the same to US defenses with Biden at the helm.
