    As many as five people were stabbed Friday morning inside a Starbucks in the northern English city of Manchester – and counter-terrorism police launched an investigation after a suspect was caught, according to reports. “We are currently responding to an incident at the Arndale Shopping Centre in Manchester City Centre,” a Greater Manchester police spokesman said, according to the Telegraph. “A man in his 40s has been arrested on suspicion of serious assault. He has been taken to custody for questioning,” he added.

    A Starbucks barista in England was caught on video trying to boot a homeless man as he chowed down on a meal purchased by a kind-hearted bystander outside the coffee chain. The footage, obtained by The Sun, shows the unidentified drifter, dressed in an open shirt, sitting outside a Starbucks in Southend, Essex, after a Good Samaritan spent $10 to buy him food after seeing the man savaging nearby. “Yeah, he can eat somewhere else,” a barista told the man and Sajid Kahhllon, who paid for the sandwich and chocolate cake moments earlier. “But he bought the food, he paid...

    SOUTH BEND, Ind.-- Thousands of fetal remains were found at the home of a former South Bend abortion doctor, WSBT reports. The remains were discovered while family members were searching through the home of Dr. Ulrich Klopfer, who passed away on Sept. 3. His home is in Will County, Illinois. WSBT reports Kloper used to practice at the Women's Pavilion in South Bend. His medical license was suspended in 2015 after he was accused of failing to report an abortion on a 13-year-old girl.

    The gory discovery was made by a passerby who noticed two feet sticking out of the carpet on the sidewalk outside of the chain coffee joint at the corner of West 145th Street and Bradhurst Avenue just before 6 a.m., cops said. The witness quickly called the police who found the unconscious and unresponsive man with signs of head trauma wrapped in a cardboard box inside of the carpet, authorities said. Medics responded and the man – whose identity was not immediately known – was pronounced dead at the scene. “We’re treating it at this point as a homicide,” ......

    A Muslim man said he feels discriminated against after a Starbucks employee in Philadelphia wrote “ISIS” on his cup, but Starbucks claims the mistake was just a misspelling, according to NBC News. Niquel Johnson told NBC News he told a Starbucks barista on Aug. 25 that his name was “Aziz,” giving a shortened version of his Muslim name, Abdul Aziz. He noticed about 20 minutes after picking up the three drinks he ordered that the cups had “ISIS” written on them, the acronym for the Islamic terror group. "I was shocked at first, and then angry because I felt as...
  • Wall Street Is Suddenly Woke And It's A Joke

    Why all the hand wringing about the economy? If what I read this week in the Wall Street Journal is correct, anyone with a 401K, IRA, or other market-tied investment will most certainly take it in the shorts in the coming years no matter what happens between President Trump and China. Corporate political activism will sink us all. Some of America’s biggest CEOs gathered this week for an event known as the “Business Roundtable.” WSJ’s David Benoit reported on the event and the new language nearly unanimously endorsed from the group was stunning.Specifically, a discussion surrounding the language of their mission...

    Several of the largest, most well known corporations in America also happen to be some of the most left-leaning. Indeed, in today’s hyper-partisan political era, intensified and arguably defined by the election and administration of President Donald Trump, left-wingers in positions of corporate power have used their leverage and political leanings to effectively add a whole new term to America’s political lingo - Woke Capitalism.Under the Woke Capitalist model, companies aren’t just producing and selling a product to create shareholder wealth and provide for employee livelihoods, they are also assuming the mantle of social justice, or fairness and equality as...

    If her first interview is any indication, the new leader of Planned Parenthood is doubling down on abortion as “one of our core services.”On July 16, Alexis McGill Johnson became the acting president and CEO of Planned Parenthood and Planned Parenthood Action. The move came after her predecessor, Leana Wen, claimed she was fired for not prioritizing abortion enough while at the helm of the nation’s largest abortion provider.While Wen served for a short eight months, McGill Johnson may head Planned Parenthood for more than a year. In one press statement, Planned Parenthood revealed that its search for a more permanent leader...

    FiveThirtyEight noticed last week that, very quietly, Biden was recovering from the polling hit he took after the busing exchange with Kamala Harris at the last debate. Harris had zoomed up after that in some polls, even touching 20 percent in Quinnipiac’s June survey, but the trend didn’t continue. It was Biden who was once again on the rise while Harris dipped a bit.Now here comes Quinnipiac’s July poll with even clearer evidence of the trend.What happened?Look back to the numbers from June. After a long slide in early July after the first debate, with Harris nearly passing him,...

    Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke says he was recently given documents showing that both he and his wife are descended from people who owned slaves. In a post Sunday night for the website Medium, the former Texas congressman writes that the documents showed that one of his paternal great-great-great grandfathers owned two women in the 1850s. He says records also showed that one ancestor of his wife, Amy, owned slaves while another was part of the Confederate Army. …

    President Trump’s impeachment organizer Tom Steyer has joined the race to become the Democratic presidential nominee with a pledge to spend $100 million of his own billion-dollar fortune. While it will not put him any closer to defeating Donald Trump, it does likely close the door on former Vice President Joe Biden winning the nomination. Steyer’s notoriety comes from donating the billions he has made investing in fossil fuels, private prisons and subprime lending companies into progressive activism for impeaching President Trump and reckless environmental policies. He will be pushing the same radical, job-killing climate change ideas that those defining...

    The policy positions of Democrats running for their party’s 2020 presidential nomination have gone from the impractical to the absurd to outright chilling, should any one of them win and actually implement those policies. The latest comes from Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who essentially threatened all border enforcement and immigration agents for simply doing their jobs. In a policy proposal posted online, the Massachusetts Democrat said that as president, she would appoint a “task force to investigate accusations of serious violations — including medical neglect and physical and sexual assaults of detained immigrants.” She added the task force would be...

    Starbucks Corp on Sunday apologized after an employee at one of its stores in Tempe, Arizona asked six police officers to leave or move out of a customer’s line of sight, triggering social media backlash. The officers had visited the store on July 4 and had paid for the drinks, before one company employee approached them about a customer not feeling safe because of the police presence, the Tempe Officers Association said on Twitter. “This treatment of public safety workers could not be more disheartening. While the barista was polite, making such a request at all was offensive,” the association...

    A group of Arizona police officers were asked to leave a Starbucks coffee shop on July 4 after a customer complained to staff that she “didn’t feel safe” with them being there, reports say. Five cops from the Tempe Police Department were drinking at a branch of the coffee chain in the city when they were approached by a barista and told that a customer had made a complaint about their presence. The worker is said to have told them to either move out of the complaining customer’s line of sight or leave the premises entirely, the Tempe Officers Association...

    Starbucks billionaire Howard Schultz suspended his longshot presidential campaign on Wednesday — saying he had a sore back and needed time to get better. Schultz told campaign staffers he was slashing the operation, the Huffington Post reported. Schultz came into the office Wednesday for the first time in months and met with the staff, a person in the room told the website. Later, Schultz sent an email to backers about his bad back. “While I was in Arizona, I unfortunately experienced acute back pain that required me to cut my travels short,” he wrote.

    The pro-mass immigration Koch brothers’ network of billionaire, donor-class organizations is readying to financially back Democrats, so long as they promise to support amnesty for illegal aliens and vote to advance free trade at all costs. In a memo to its staff, the Koch-funded Americans for Prosperity (AFP) organization announced that the economic libertarian group is set to back any elected official in Washington, DC, — including Democrats — who support their agenda of amnesty for illegal aliens and endless free trade, and oppose the GOP voter-preferred economic nationalist agenda of less immigration and tariffs to protect American jobs.

    SALEM – Oregon is close to becoming the 15th state to signal that it will award its Electoral College votes to the presidential candidate who receives the most votes nationwide. On a 37-22 party line vote, the Democratic majority in the Oregon House sent Senate Bill 870 to the desk of Democratic Gov. Kate Brown, who has indicated her support. Instead, said Rep. Allisa Keny-Guyer, D-Portland, the compact would make Oregon more relevant during presidential campaigns. “The Republican presidential candidates write Oregon totally off, and the Democratic candidates take Oregon for granted,” she said. “So we are just relegated to...
