    Not promoting violence, voting against it. You will never see me raising a fist. I’m a pacifist. My words were taken out of context. I’m worried about the blood of the dissent, protesters, more children shot at school, people shot while praying, for who they love and who they are— James Cromwell 🐷 (@jamesocromwell) October 30, 2018 [cut] This walk back comes after the Jurassic World star said that Trump’s presidency could lead to a “revolution” with “blood in the streets.”

    Before he was honored at the 4th annual Carney Awards Sunday evening, Actor James Cromwell warned that the United States will experience another a “revolution” with “blood in the streets” unless President Donald Trump’s agenda is thwarted. “This is nascent fascism. We always had a turnkey, totalitarian state — all we needed was an excuse, and all the institutions were in place to turn this into pure fascism,” James Cromwell said in an interview with Variety. “If we don’t stop [President Trump] now, then we will have a revolution for real. Then there will be blood in the streets.” During...

    Though James Cromwell was honored at the fourth annual Carney Awards for his work as a character actor, the industry veteran has worked as a political activist his entire career. On the red carpet at the Eli and Edythe Broad Stage in Santa Monica, Calif., he candidly shared his thoughts about the current political climate. “This is nascent fascism. We always had a turnkey, totalitarian state — all we needed was an excuse, and all the institutions were in place to turn this into pure fascism,” Cromwell told Variety on Sunday night. “If we don’t stop [President Trump] now, then...

    Telegraph UK ^ | 3/11/07
    Activist though he may be, Cromwell isn’t above taking a part for the cash, which is how he ended up on 24, the television series with which he says he has 'real problems’. On the show, Cromwell plays Jack Bauer’s father, a corrupt industrialist who runs – gasp – a multinational corporation. 'I can’t handle living in the United States of America’ – you can tell someone’s getting soap-boxy when they call it that, and Cromwell’s indulging in a moment of heartfelt theatre now – 'when I know the last two elections were rigged, and that we were denied our...

    Actor James Cromwell went to great lengths while joining PETA's protest against Starbucks on Tuesday. In a video shared by the animal rights organization, the Succession star, 82, superglued his hand to a counter in a New York City Starbucks to protest the coffee chain's "senseless" upcharge for Vegan milk. "There's no reason for it except greed," Cromwell says in part in a video shared by PETA on Facebook, later reading a letter and asking, "Will you stop charging more for vegan milk? When will you stop raking in huge profits while customers, animals, and the environment suffer? When you...

    James Cromwell took a dramatic stand for PETA Tuesday morning by supergluing his hand to a Starbucks counter in protest of the coffee chain’s up-charge for vegan milks. Appearing on a Facebook livestream, the “Succession” star, 82, rattled off facts about the cons of producing dairy milk from cows as he remained stuck to the Midtown Manhattan shop’s counter alongside other PETA members. Despite advocating for inclusivity, Starbucks “still discriminates against those who can’t have dairy” by making customers “pay more” for vegan options such as almond milk and oat milk, Cromwell claimed. “My friends at PETA and I are...

    Bonola frequented an Austin coffee shop in Forest Hills where he allegedly used to leave “creepy” love notes for baristas. Female workers were so fearful at his advances that they called cops on him multiple times. “He would come up to us and ask for coffees and tell us that we looked pretty and make comments about how we look,” former barista Oliwia Pikulinski, 21, told New York Post. “He was creepy, he stalked people… It was known. Everyone knew he was a weird individual, especially in the Starbucks on Austin Street." Bonola would visit the shop several times a...

    Among executives, board members, analysts and others in the business world in recent days, a “who’s who” list has been floating around, showing which companies have pulled out of Russia amid its attack on Ukraine — and which ones have stayed put. The spreadsheet, compiled by Yale University professor Jeffrey Sonnenfeld and his research team, has become a naughty-or-nice list of sorts, with CEOs trying their best to avoid being placed on the roster of “Companies That Remain in Russia With Significant Exposure.” Sonnenfeld, who founded the nonprofit Chief Executive Leadership Institute, said he has fielded calls from CEOs asking...

    Some of America’s biggest brands like McDonald’s, Coca-Cola and Pepsi are under growing pressure to cut business ties with Russia as social media users continue to express outrage over Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine. The hashtags #BoycottMcDonalds and #BoycottCocaCola were trending on Twitter over the weekend as public opinion has remained overwhelmingly opposed to Russia’s military assault against its neighbor to the west. The Post has reached out to McDonald’s, Coca-Coca and PepsiCo seeking comment.

    Another company has abandoned its plans for a vaccination mandate and mandatory routine testing roughly one week after the Supreme Court killed President Biden's plans to enforce a corporate vax mandate through OSHA. To wit, Starbucks has joined the ranks of American megacorps including General Electric in rejecting vaccine mandates by pausing its plans to require baristas to get vaccinated, or receive weekly testing. The decision was reported shortly before President Joe Biden blasted the SCOTUS ruling as a "mistake" during his Wednesday press briefing.Instead, Starbucks says it will "strongly encourage" baristas to get vaxxed while encouraging them to disclose...

    Diners are feeling a sense of déjà vu as restaurants are again selling food for takeout only, closing dining-room seating or shortening hours as the Omicron variant of Covid-19 spreads. Chains such as Starbucks Corp. and Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. said they are temporarily limiting operations at individual stores or regions as they face labor shortages and a rise in Covid-19 cases. Other restaurant operators said more of their staff are testing positive for the coronavirus in the Omicron surge than during the growth of the earlier Delta variant and are voluntarily closing for stretches as a result. "It’s one...

    Starbucks (SBUX) is expanding diversity and inclusion efforts that the coffee giant broadened back in October in 2020, which include a big financial commitment to diverse suppliers. The Seattle-based company aims to achieve Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) representation of at least 30% at all corporate levels, and at least 40% of all retail and manufacturing roles in the U.S. by 2025. The new plans include Starbucks boosting annual spending with diverse suppliers to $1.5 billion dollars by 2030. It will also launch a second cohort of its mentorship program for U.S. partners, and will reinstate its commitment...

    Less than a month after voting to form a union, employees at a Starbucks store in Buffalo, N.Y., have gone on strike over grievances about working conditions. Six employees on the schedule to work instead formed a picket line in front of the store. Three other employees reported to work as scheduled, but Starbucks closed the location for the day. The striking employees stated that the surge in coronavirus cases and illnesses among the staff had created “unsafe working conditions.” In recent days, Buffalo area Starbucks locations have been operating on a take-out-only basis. “Pressure to go to work is...

    The Camden County Department of Health instructed anyone who patronized Blackwood Clementon Road Starbucks on Nov. 4, 5, 6, 11, 12 or 13 to get the vaccine out of an abundance of caution, according to NJ.com. The website said that the county is setting up a vaccination clinic on Friday. However, an investigation did not reveal any health violations at the store, which was temporarily closed until all of the employees had been vaccinated. Fox 29 reported that the county was made aware of the infection on Wednesday. Hepatitis A is caused by the hepatitis A virus (HAV), which is...

    Three Starbucks shops in New York could be the first in the massive US coffee chain to unionize, pending a worker vote set to start Wednesday. A total of around 100 employees at the upstate shops in Buffalo, Cheektowaga and Hamburg will have four weeks to cast their ballots for or against forming a union at the locations, Bloomberg reported. “It’s a much bigger deal than the number of [affected workers] would suggest. Winning is contagious, and it could spread like wildfire,” former National Labor Review Board Chair Wilma Liebman told the news outlet.

    A woman who was run over by a man in a BMW SUV several times in downtown Millbrae early Monday morning is in critical condition and the suspect arrested for attempted murder, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office. At about 12:21 a.m., a patrol deputy conducting a business check located an unresponsive woman lying face down in the parking lot of Starbucks at 513 Broadway in Millbrae. She had sustained major injuries and the preliminary investigation showed that she was struck by a vehicle. She was transported to San Francisco General Hospital where she underwent surgery and is...
