Yet Another ‘Progressive’ Starbucks Policy is Costing It Business

Two years ago, National Legal and Policy Center’s Carl Horowitz foretold that policies implemented by Starbucks, in response to a nationwide uproar over an incident in a Philadelphia store, “will not work.” Horowitz emphasized the failures of mandatory diversity training, which the company imposed on employees across its more than 8,000 locations in May 2018, while shutting down […]

Corporate America Gets Behind Deceptively Named ‘Equality Act’

Much of corporate America is once again banding together to attack the social construct of the nation and many of its liberties, all in the name of conferring special rights and privileges upon individuals who don’t accept or acknowledge the gender they were born with. The occasion this time was to get behind the “Equality […]

Sorry Starbucks, You’re Stuck With Howard Schultz

Now that Howard Schultz supposedly has disengaged himself from Starbucks and is considering a run for the presidency in 2020, the company fears his political pursuits will hurt their bottom line.

Google Defends Profane, Hate-Filled Tweet by Employee

  Upon the swearing in of Brett Kavanaugh as the newest Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court after he was falsely accused by Democrats of sexual attacks and impropriety, Google lead designer Dave Hogue let loose on Twitter with a profane rant that condemned Republicans to a painful eternal destiny of torment.

Time for Starbucks to Break With Schultz’ Left-Wing Politics

It has been reported that the idea of former CEO Howard Schultz running as a Democrat for the presidency is giving Starbucks investors, financial analysts, and company officials cause for concern.

Starbucks ‘Anti-Bias’ Training Will Not Work

Never before in the history of corporate America has a company so welcomed accusations of racism as Starbucks.

Starbucks Closing Stores on May 29 for ‘Anti-Bias’ Indoctrination

The term “corporate diversity” these days refers far less to a diversity of opinion than to a diversity of demography in which people submit to rigid codes of speech and behavior if they want to stay employed. Of the many companies enforcing this regime, Starbucks has been especially zealous. On April 18, 2018, Starbucks Executive Chairman Howard […]

Starbucks’ Refugees Move Costs Them With Customers

Starbucks and its CEO Howard Schultz are known well for wading in to divisive political issues and in support for liberal candidates like Hillary Clinton, yet it never seems to cost them significantly in either sales or stock price. Even when Schultz told shareholders to sell if they don’t agree with corporation stances on issues […]

I’ve Had My Last Cup of Starbucks Coffee

At the Starbucks annual meeting on March 20, CEO Howard Schultz told a shareholder named Tom Strobhar to sell his stock if he disagreed with the company’s embrace of gay marriage.

Memo to Starbucks: Dig In, Smell the Coffee, Fight Back

Starbucks, that epitome of a socially-conscious corporation, is now the target of a campaign among self-styled socially-conscious activists. One can understand why radical activists would go after discount retail behemoth Wal-Mart. But who would have thought they’d have classy Starbucks in their sights? Last month, Brave New Films, an independent documentary production company based in […]
