Campaign 2020

Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz Bows to the Extreme Left, Dissolves Presidential Campaign

The liberal centrist didn’t have the spine to stand up to the radical left as a presidential contender.

Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, who paused his exploration for an independent presidential candidacy in June, officially pulled the plug on his campaign on Friday.

“If I went forward, there is a risk that my name would appear on ballots even if a moderate Democrat wins the nomination, and that is not a risk I am willing to take,” Schultz wrote in a letter announcing his failure today.

Schultz had previously talked about the need to prevent a radical socialist, such as independent Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, from winning the Democratic Party nomination in 2020.

“The stakes are too high to cross our fingers and hope the Democratic Party nominates a moderate who can win over enough independents and disaffected Republicans, and even fellow Democrats, to defeat Trump next year,” Schultz wrote in a blog post back in February. “That any opponent can oust Trump, no matter how far to the radical left they are, is a fallacy.”

“Those so concerned about a centrist independent being a spoiler should perhaps ask another question: Will the eventual Democratic nominee be the party’s own version of a spoiler?” Schultz added.

However, Schultz quickly lost his nerve and will instead be throwing around his immense wealth in the hopes to manipulate the Democratic Party into accepting a moderate contender to face President Donald Trump in 2020.

“The money that I was prepared to commit to a presidential campaign will instead be used to invest in people, organizations and ideas that promote honesty, civility and results in our politics,” he wrote.

Schultz may have delusions of accomplishing those goals, but as CNN’s Green Town Hall showed earlier this week, the Democratic Party has already become the political vehicle of the extreme Left, and there is no turning back.

“I think especially in poor countries around the world where women do not necessarily want to have large numbers of babies and where they can have the opportunity through birth control to control the number of kids they have, is something I very, very strongly support,” Sanders said at the town hall in support of population control.

“And this is, again, the problem with having the almighty dollar running our society, where people look up and say, oh, replacing the pipes is expensive, or, oh, another substance would be more expensive. Are you kidding me? You know what is expensive? Poisoning our kids,” entrepreneur Andrew Yang said.

“This is the hardest thing we will have done … this is on par with winning World War II. Perhaps, even more challenging than that,” openly homosexual South Bend, IN Mayor Pete Buttigieg said about the scope of the climate change problem.

Schultz has failed at his mission to combat radicalism within modern liberalism, and he will now waste some of his billions fighting for that lost cause heading into next year’s presidential election.

“Moderate” Democrat Senator Joe Manchin Wants Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz Removed From the Senate

So much for moderation and unity…

Published

Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.

Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.

Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.

On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.

“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”

According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”

Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.

“I’m totally convinced it was done because of political reasons. This was all politically motivated. This was calculated,” declared Manchin. “I believe that all my colleagues truly made a decision that was politically best for them and expedient for them. It was not what they believed to be true or false.”

Unquestionably, Manchin is an establishment hack through and through. He may have reasonable views on gun policy, in part due to West Virginia’s strong gun culture, but Manchin is still a member of the D.C. swamp. His recent statements demonstrate this. Republican nationalists should relieve him of the burden of holding public office in 2024.
