U.S. voters are being played. First they were presented with a faux conservative in the shape of Donald Trump, who prior to his election promised to reduce U.S. military involvement overseas. However, once elected he carried on where his predecessor left off and committed more U.S. troops to Afghanistan.
Now it appears that an “alternative” to Trump is being prepared in the shape of former Starbucks CEO Howard Schulz. Whereas Trump was marketed to appeal to disaffected Americans with conservative leanings, Schulz is a counterpoint.
Like Trump he comes from a wealthy background but in contrast he spouts a political line that is liberal, caring and concerned.
An indication of precisely where Schulz is coming from can be seen in recently introduced ‘racial sensitivity’ program for Starbuck’s employees. As has been pointed out, the training course sounds more like an indoctrination program, which is unsurprising given that it was run by an organisation funded by George Soros.
In other words Schulz is just as likely to follow the dictates of the ruling elite as Trump.
American voters are being played by one fake political candidate after another. Schulz is just being groomed to dupe Americans who might be more receptive to a more ‘liberal’, ‘tolerant’and ‘caring’ message after Trump. Ed.

‘Starbucks’ Howard Schultz will step down as executive chairman – hints at a possible 2020 presidential run

Howard Schultz announced Monday that he will no longer serve as the executive chairman of Starbucks.

A memo sent out to employees of the coffee chain confirmed Shultz will leave his position on June 26.

The announcement comes just days after the closure of 8,000 stores for anti-racism training.

Shultz said in the memo: ‘I’ll be thinking about a range of options for myself, from philanthropy to public service, but I’m a long way from knowing what the future holds.’ 

The billionaire businessman began working with the company back in 1986 as the CEO, a role he took on for several years before he transitioned to executive chairman in 2017.

Following Schultz’s resignation, Starbucks said Myron E. Ullman will take over the role of executive chairman.

n another twist, Democratic Schultz, 64, said he is considering the possibility of a 2020 presidential election run.

While speaking with The New York Times this week, he said: ‘I want to be truthful with you without creating more speculative headlines. 

‘For some time now, I have been deeply concerned about our country – the growing division at home and our standing in the world.’

He added: ‘One of the things I want to do in my next chapter is to figure out if there is a role I can play in giving back…I’m not exactly sure what that means yet.’

The former Starbucks CEO resigned from the top spot last April to focus on improving innovation and social issues within the company.
