    by Gina Cassini | Top Right NewsPresident Donald J. Trump in January signed an executive order to freeze immigration from 7 countries (identified by the Obama Administration itself in a 2011 order) from which ISIS fighters have snuck into Western countries disguised as “refugees.” The left-wing immediately announced its violent opposition to Trump's reasonable, completely legal plan, launching a legal challenge, andf temporarily snarling the order in the courts. But some companies publicly went against the new President, expressing their support for Muslim "refugees." The most prominent company to do this was coffee giant Starbucks, whose CEO Howard Schultz, a strong...

    Residents in Spain have an answer for Starbucks’ company officials who announced plans to hire 10,000 refugees from mostly Muslim communities – and if a picture says 1,000 words, this message is a volume. From the blog: “All the Starbucks branches in Madrid have been redubbed ‘STARBURKA REFUGEES’ in a mass sticker protest action against that company’s decision to employ 10,000 Muslim invaders posing as refugees—while unemployment in Spain is over 20 percent. “The protest action, carried out by Spanish nationalist activists Hogar Social Madrid (HSM), saw activists print up ultra-sticky full size stickers to replace existing store signage, made...

    Starbucks will offer legal advice to its employees and their family members who are immigrants affected by Donald Trump's travel ban. "Our partners (employees) and their families have questions about travel and immigration status, so we wanted to provide them with a newly developed Immigration Advisory Program to meet their needs," said Starbucks spokesperson Reggie Borges in an email. Trump's executive order bans the entry of immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries. Starbucks launched its new advisory program on Monday and is offering the service to full-time and part-time employees alike. The coffee giant is working with the immigration branch of...

    As Trump supporters threaten to boycott Starbucks, Black Rifle Coffee Company (BRCC) is seizing the opportunity to win over coffee drinkers who support the president. Soon after Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz announced plans to hire 10,000 refugees, in response to President Trump's executive order barring people from seven majority-Muslim countries and all refugees from entering the US, BRCC made a promise of its own. The company, which sells coffee blends, monthly coffee club subscriptions, and java-centric apparel and gear, posted that it would hire 10,000 veterans, just as the pro-Trump movement to boycott Starbucks gained steam.

We need to keep in mind that the four things we care about at BRCC are Family, Business, Veterans and country," the company posted on its Instagram page. "And when we say 'country', the taxpayers.

    They’re hiring the wrong people. But another company is doing the right thing. Liberty Alliance vice president Joe Wurzelbacher, who earned the moniker “Joe the Plumber” after his discussion on socialism with then-candidate Barack Obama during the 2008 presidential campaign, said that Starbucks has its priorities all wrong. Howard Schultz, the coffee giant’s CEO, announced plans to hire 10,000 refugees to work in its restaurants. When 11,000 air traffic controllers called his bluff, President Reagan fired all of them–it’s called leadership “I believe he should hire 10,000 veterans” instead of the refugees, Wurzelbacher said. “They’re the ones who made it...

    Democrats and liberal media outlets shed major crocodile tears this past weekend after 109 of 325,000 foreign passengers were detained at US airports over the weekend. This was very odd because Obama banned Iraqi refugees for six months in 2011 and Democrats said nothing. On Monday Starbucks Corp CEO Howard Schultz announced that the company would hire 10,000 refugees over the next five years to ease the company’s conscience. This announcement violates EEOC rules. And several conservatives have vowed to boycott the liberal coffee company. Now the Starbucks stock is in freefall since the announcement.

    Have you ever noticed how liberals always think that everyone else's money is theirs? Liberal CEOs of companies like Starbucks aren't content with contributing some of their own massive salaries to the political causes they like; they have to use their shareholders' money, too. The Starbucks CEO said that backing the redefinition of marriage to suit the whims of the 2% of Americans who are gay wasn't an economic decision. He admitted that even though it hurt the company, he'd decided that the morality he liked should be backed. A responsible CEO wouldn't declare that people he disagree with about...

The officers were not injured because the battered weapon, its butt covered with duct tape or foil, appeared to jam. Powell of Suisun City was in critical condition after being shot by the officers during a foot chase.

    ZeroHedge reminds us that a year ago, owner and CEO of Seattle-based Starbucks, Howard Schultz, piously told CNN that he supported raising the minimum wage to $15/hour “across the country,” but warned that “it will be very difficult for small business in the country at a $15 level to pay those kinds of wages.” Then Schultz grandly announced that Starbucks will lead the way by raising the wages of its employees “way above the minimum wage”: “For Starbucks come January 1 we are taking wages up across the country and we will pay above the minimum wage in every state...

      Did you see the Wall Street Journal article yesterday about Starbucks new app? Raj was in it! They spelled his name wrong, of course: For Sathyarajkumar Krishnasamy, 49, an engineer, finally seeing his properly spelled name on a cup has been a breakthrough. In Starbucks stores, he had tried everything from providing his nickname, “Raj,” which sometimes came out as “Rodge,” to telling baristas to identify him simply as “number 10.” The accuracy of the app, says Mr. Krishnasamy, is “a small happiness.”  One hot black grande for “Rodge”!Butt that was the whole point of the story: how Starbucks...

    Coffee conglomerate Starbucks is being sued for $5 million over the amount of ice the drink-maker puts in its iced beverages. According to The Telegraph, Stacy Pincus filed a 29-page complaint in Northern Illinois Federal Court in Chicago last week. Pincus alleges that Starbucks customers are being misled because the company’s iced drinks contain just over half the drink they are paying for.

    When Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz visited Ferguson last year, he saw the still-visible signs of unrest. But he also saw promise, and in July the company announced it would open a location there and partner with a local nonprofit to create job training opportunities. On Saturday, Ferguson’s first Starbucks will open at 10776 West Florissant Ave., the company said Friday.

    She was only 17 years-old when she died. Her father cut out her tongue and burned her alive. What was her crime, and why did this man kill his own daughter in the most horrific imaginable way? He was a Saudi Arabian official who worked with the Commission for Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice – the religious police – and when his daughter became a Christian, he butchered and murdered her.What does this have to do with Starbucks and Apple?Both these companies blast Americans who stand for religious liberties and conservative moral values, even threatening states that will protect those...

    T. AUGUSTINE, Fla. — Some need a pick me-up in the early mornings. Many people head to Starbucks for their dose of caffeine.

A photo of the message on the cup was shared with Action News Jax on Facebook. “That first word just automatically brought the picture of both sisters in my head, and I was taken aback,” said the Starbucks customer.

    It is a well-known fact that the corporate world is powered by high-end coffees. With pithy corporate executives forced to work early morning hours to keep their companies competitive, they must find a good source of status-quot coffee to start their day and show they are in charge. Powerful liberals understand this fact and have thus encouraged young lesbians to start ‘exciting careers’ in the barista industry. By working at local Starbucks nationwide, lesbians have...

    It starts like a joke — Gov. Rick Scott walks into a Gainesville Starbucks — but one patron wasn’t laughing. Scott stopped in at the coffee chain for a cup Tuesday after touring the recently opened factory and headquarters for biopharmaceutical company Nanotherapeutics. Cara Jennings, a former Lake Worth city commissioner, saw Scott in the downtown store and ripped into him, from her seat, over health insurance and cuts to women’s health services, and calling him an expletive
