It’s like that old horror movie: THE CALLS ARE COMING FROM INSIDE THE HOUSE!
In this case, that “house” belongs to the Democrats, who are facing the ultimate nightmare of what they see as a saboteur on the inside.
Billionaire ex-Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, a self-described “lifelong Democrat” and outspoken liberal, is considering a run for president… but not as a member of the party.
He’s wants to do an end run around the whole process, running as an independent, and he’s already put one of the Democratic front-runners on notice.
In fact, you might say he’s coming for Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s scalp!
Schultz not only returned fire when the Massachusetts senator attacked him out of the blue, he also exposed yet another ugly example of her hypocrisy.
After she attacked him… and after she said it was “ridiculous” for a billionaire like Schultz to try to “buy the presidency”… he revealed that she didn’t seem to think he was so “ridiculous” when she needed money for her reelection campaign.

In fact, she came begging for a handout!
Then he revealed what’s probably the REAL reason she’s so sour: He told MSNBC that he declined to give her money because he doesn’t believe in her socialist policies:
“I don’t believe the country should be heading to socialism… I think she believes in programs that will lead to a level of socialism in America.”
“She’s a smart woman. I respect her,” he said. “This isn’t personal. I just don’t agree with her.”
Warren has kept up the attacks, routinely slamming him for his wealth… as if she’s not a multi-millionaire herself.

“I want these billionaires to stop being freeloaders,” she said on CNBC.
But Schultz isn’t ashamed. And he’s not about to apologize.
“Senator Elizabeth Warren said some pretty sharp words about me,” he said in a video posted online. “She referred to me as a billionaire out of touch with the American people.”
But then he revealed what TRULY scares Warren: Even he, the liberal Starbucks billionaire know-it-all, is not as out-of-touch as she is.
In fact, he grew up in the projects in Brooklyn.
“When I was 7 years old my father, who was a laborer, came home and had a serious accident,” he said. “He was dismissed from his job, we lost our health insurance. I witnessed the fracturing of the American dream.”
What happened next is the classic American story that Democrats hate.
He picked himself up by his bootstraps.
“I started with nothing and I made it in America because of the aspiration, the magnetism, and the spirit of our country,” he said.
No wonder the left is so terrified of him!
What has them even more frightened is that he is essentially one of their own, part of the elite moneyed class of limousine liberals.
Schultz is so closely linked to the left that he has pretty much ONLY contributed to Democrats, with the exception of a single donation to Sen. John McCain more than 20 years ago, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
He donated to Obama in 2008, according to CNN, and publicly endorsed Hillary Clinton in 2016.
The billionaire was reportedly on her shortlist of potential vice presidential picks, and had a job-in-waiting in her administration, where he was in line to be labor secretary, according to Slate, which predicted the move would have “enraged” the left.
Now, however, they have a whole new reason to be enraged: One of their own is turning against them.
And while he’s the first, there’s a good chance he won’t be the last.
