    Howard Schultz and the billionaire establishment’s preference for Trump over leftist Democrats

    Howard Schultz, 65, oversaw the expansion of Starbucks into a global brand and now feels qualified to run the United States. Whether or not Howard Schultz, the billionaire former CEO of Starbucks, runs for president in 2020 hinges largely on what direction the Democratic Party goes. Schultz, who has no political experience, is concerned that the party has become too left-wing, pushed by prominent congresspeople like Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. In order to save the country from a choice between socialism and Donald Trump, Schultz may be compelled to run as a “centrist independent.” In a media blitz…

    Democrats Need to Decide If They're Afraid of Socialism or Not

    Democrats Need to Decide If They’re Afraid of Socialism or Not

    Image: Getty Images Democratic candidates are worried about maintaining their progressive cred without alienating centrists or succumbing to accusations from the right of a socialist takeover. The surprise is that you can’t actually do both of those things because you’re going to get called socialist anyway! The Washington Post reports that some 2020 hopefuls are already couching Medicare for All and the Green New Deal in optimistic, but somewhat skeptical terms. In New Hampshire, Sen. Cory Booker told a crowd of supporters that Medicare for all would be difficult to pass and may, instead, require incremental changes. He made sure…

    Bernie Sanders is back with a bang, but will his 2020 bid be hampered as badly as 2016?

    Bernie Sanders is back with a bang, but will his 2020 bid be hampered as badly as 2016?

    Day one of Bernie Sanders’ campaign is off to a strong start, with the Vermont senator racking up $4 million in campaign donations in just 12 hours, and surpassing $6 million within 24 hours. Sanders received 225,000 individual donations from all 50 states, and the average donation was $27, which was the same average he had in the 2016 election and shows the same grassroots support for his campaign that was sparked during the last primary race. Not only is the new campaign echoing 2016 in terms of support, Sanders 2020 differs from 2016 in that he was given a…
