Dems Frantically Call for Starbucks Boycott Over Third Party Possibility

If the DC Swamp creatures fail to keep us divided down party lines, there’s a possibility that we’d unite long enough to call them out on their chicanery.

George Carlin said it most succinctly:  “It’s a big club, and you ain’t in it“.

Carlin was a genius comedian who worked late into his years, often railing against the government and its subsidiary lobbying groups as the real scourge fo the DC swamp.  We’re not sure that, if he were alive today, he’s be a big fan of Donald Trump, but he certainly would have something to say about the exclusionary and divisive role that the democratic party has taken.

As for the aforementioned quote, here’s some context:

Warning:  Carlin uses some extremely colorful language here:

And Carlin’s right; the moment someone from outside the established lines of “democrat” and “republican” opens their mouth, the swamp creature getting to hissing in unison, demonstrating their distaste in ever-more foul ways.

Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultiz is learning that lesson the hard way this week after announcing the possibility of an independent presidential run in 2020.

Billionaire Michael Bloomberg fired a warning shot in the direction of former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz on Monday, saying he shouldn’t mount an independent campaign for president because he could prevent the Democratic Party from defeating President Donald Trump in 2020.

Third-party White House runs tend to peel votes away from major-party candidates, splitting the support from one side in a way that benefits the other.

Trump himself suggested he would welcome Schultz in the race as a foil, tweeting that he did not have the ‘guts’ to run and was not ‘the smartest.’

Democratic activists have begun to openly suggest boycotting Starbucks, a company in which Schultz maintains significant ownership, until he commits that he won’t disrupt the Democrats’ chances to unify behind a single anti-Trump challenger.

Howard Schultz isn’t in the Big Club, and that is precisely why he should continue to weigh his options here.

Those at the top of the establishment piles in DC want to keep us divided down party lines, and they wish for us to remain furious at one another.  This massive recoil at the thought of an independent candidate in 2020 is simply more proof of that.

Amazon Rolls Out Creepy ‘Pay By Palm’ Hardware at Whole Foods

Is this one of the harbingers of a cashless society?

Published

Throughout much of modern history, Americans and their cash were two separate things.  One was a human being, breathing and walking about, earning money.  The money was an inanimate commodity of varying value that we used to keep the organism alive, fat, and happy. But in the future, it seems as though we may find ourselves intrinsically, and anatomically indistinguishable from our bank account.  In fact, it appears as though Amazon is banking on it. Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) said it is rolling out biometric technology at its Whole Foods stores around Seattle starting on Wednesday, letting shoppers pay for items with a scan of their palm. The move shows how Amazon is bringing some of the technology already in use at its namesake brick-and-mortar Go and Books stores to the grocery chain it acquired in 2017. The system, called Amazon One, lets customers associate a credit card with their palm print. It offers a contact-less alternative to cash and card payments, Amazon said. Of course, the move is being regarded as a terrifying leap into Orwellian territory by privacy experts, as it appears to push us ever closer to a cashless society where hackers and power failures could doom us all to poverty in the blink of an eye.

Fraternal Order of Police Responds to LeBron James’ Tweet Fiasco

And they were NOT happy.

The politicization of American sports has been ongoing for some time, perhaps decades, but the most recent acceleration of this melding has come thanks to the power of social media and the blurring of the line between celebrity and athlete. At the forefront of this movement has been the NBA, and, more specifically, superstar LeBron James. This week, James came under fire for a tweet in which he referenced the Derek Chauvin trial’s guilty verdicts, with a photo of another officer who was involved in the shooting of a young black girl and text stating “you’re next”. The tweet was seen as a threat by many, including the Fraternal Order of Police who responded harshly. On Wednesday, James tweeted a photo of the officer involved in the shooting with a caption reading “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.” The tweet has since been deleted. James was reacting to the deadly police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant. Hours later, the National Fraternal Order of Police tweeted a photo of James’ original tweet, saying: “[email protected], with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless. The officer saved a young girl’s life. No amount of gaslighting will change that fact.” James attempted to walk back the tweet after deleting it, by issuing an explanation that garnered only a lukewarm response online.
