Sanders or Not It’s a Win for Millennials

He’s a delusional old hag!

He doesn’t even have the funding to be at the debate!

AH!!! Socialism! Stalin!

These are just a few of the exclamations made about Bernie Sanders as he first exposed a multitude of his “radical” ideas to the world.

Nearly defeating the Clinton legacy in the Iowa caucus and surging to victory in New Hampshire has hushed many of these remarks.

Senator Sanders has said himself that the numbers are very hard to overcome. Laying off hundreds of workers and campaigners has led to a somewhat of a slip in the younger generation’s enthusiasm. Making things even more difficult is his competitor Hillary Clinton, with an overwhelming favoritism among super-delegates. Shown here – 2016 delegate count, Bing

The large majority of Sander’s support is among millennials and other young leftists. Winning over 70% of young voters in some states, Sanders is effectively moving an entire generation to the left, regardless of the nomination.

We have already seen through excitement and artwork that millions of people are inspired by his passion and honesty.

A simple Google search can reveal the difference in activism between both Liberal campaigns. To find these three images, I’ve searched “Bernie Sanders artwork”. To my surprise, when I searched “Hillary Clinton artwork” I was unable to find any inspirational artwork dedicated to Mrs.Clinton. All of this artwork created for a primary campaign is both inspiring on an American level and a personal level. These works will be on display for generation, after generation motivating this nation to take action on Liberal based ideas.

After Sander’s captivated young voters, he introduced us to the ideas of a $15 minimum wage, the right to healthcare and tuition free college. These ideas combined has efficiently given his supporters the greatest sense of political efficacy since the Kennedy campaign.

With millions supporting him he is the farthest left candidate to have a chance at the nomination. When this generation of Bernie Sander’s supporters age and perhaps have children of our own, we will influence our children. Family is the number one deciding factor in a person’s political identity. More times than not if both parents have strong Liberal views(Enter Bernie Sanders Supporters) the child will also have Liberal views.

Bernie Sanders has moved our generation to the Left. No. He has moved an entire nation to the Left. By introducing Americans to the ideas of democratic socialism, he has made an earthquake. Senator Sander’s young Liberal support of him and his ideas will influence this nation for centuries, far after this campaign.

Clinton Committing more Fraud?

This Article is not meant to tear down the Clinton campaign nor meant to prove anything.

Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders battled for the Democratic votes in Iowa on Monday. Both candidates clashed swords as they attempted to encourage the people of Iowa to vote for each campaign.

Winning six coin tosses in a row might be enough to make you question the validity of the caucus.

The odds are less than 2% to win six consecutive coin tosses.

Regardless of the truth behind them, a song could almost be written about all of the fraud accusations the Clinton family has faced.

Here is yet another accusation, she may have had to commit fraud in Iowa to barely bring home the win against Bernie Sanders.

Fourteen votes are quite a lot considering Clinton won by less than ten votes, and these fourteen votes are the ones that may have cost Sanders the entirety of Iowa.

This Reddit post describes the situation quite well. Take note that Clinton had no part in this, these are her supporters reporting false information, not Clinton.

“So basically in the caucus they have to hand count everyone depending on what side they’re sitting on. Well when it came time to do the second count the numbers were off. The first vote breakdown was like this
FIRST VOTE: 215 Sanders 210 Clinton 26 O’Malley 8 Undecided 459 TOTAL

And this is the SECOND Vote: 232 Clinton 224 Sanders 456 Total

So somehow they lost 3 people but Clinton’s vote went up by 14.

So basically what had happened was Hillary’s team didn’t take the time to do a full recount instead she just added the new people who joined the second vote. Which clearly wasn’t an accurate count.”

Read the original post here.

Here is a video of the incident caught during a live-stream of the caucus.

So as we can see in the video, it isn’t Clinton committing fraud, it is counters in the video.

It is this type of caucusing that opens the doors to fraud, nothing else. It is so easy to count one or two more heads, or in this case fourteen extra people. This sort of fraud we are talking about could very well just be a genuine mistake.

It was most likely no mistake though, as the counters were both Hillary Clinton Supporters, tacking on a few more votes on for good luck.

Have a good one, JCN

3 Things You May Have Missed While Relaxing this Weekend

We all relax on the weekend, it’s human nature. To make up for this fact of life, here are three things you may have missed this weekend, streamlined and sent straight into your brain

Democrats agree to more debates

While not official, Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton  have given the go for four more additional debates. Both sides have agreed, but the Democratic National Committee has not given the OK yet, sources say.

Clinton proposed one additional debate originally, Sanders would accept the proposal only on the terms that they had an extra three debates in the spring, not scheduled by the DNC(Democratic National Committee).

Hmm… Why would Bernie want more debates? That just seems like more work and less productivity.

Well it turns out that Sanders has accused the DMC of purposefully scheduling the debates at unreasonable times, with minimalistic views. One such case is when the debate was held during the Fiftieth Super Bowl. There have been other awkward times, on a Saturday night or in the middle of other important events.

Bernie says, “They want to protect their candidate from me! Ha!”.

The Thursday debate would fit in between Monday’s Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary.

The two remaining, sanctioned debates are Wisconsin on Feb. 11 and Florida on March 9.

Campaign officials said the three Spring debates would come in late March, April and May.


New York Times announces their endorsements

 

The New York Times editorial board decided to announce their Democratic and Republican endorsee’s in response to the upcoming and much anticipated Iowa caucus.

Kasich,

the governor of Ohio, received the endorsement due to the fact that he was the only republican that NYT “could stomach”. New York Times said Kasich had “been capable of compromise and believes in the ability of government to improve lives.”

Clinton,

the front runner for the democratic party, is being chased by the crazy man himself, Bernie Sanders. This isn’t the first time Clinton has received an endorsement from the big NYT. She readily received their 2008 endorsement against Obama for the same reason she is receiving it against Sanders. “Mr Sanders does not have the breadth of experience or policy ideas that Mrs Clinton offers.”, the board stated, contradicting their praises in support of Bernie Sanders on his speeches about income equality and repairing the work force.

Wait, really?

In light of the new X-files mini series being televised, the CIA had to have their part. The CIA highlighted and gave links to previously classified info about UFO’s and extraterrestrial encounters. The files included five for Mulder and five for scully. Don’t get me wrong, this is cool and fun and stuff, but these are real CIA files about some pretty spooky stuff. Incase  you want to check these freaky files out for yourself.

Have a good one, JCN

Why Donald Trump Will Win The Republican Nomination

If you understand nothing else about Donald Trump, understand this:

  He has a particular mindset we see all the time in business — he’s “the disrupter.”

  The disrupter is someone whose entire “brand” is to break the mold, to turn the way we do things on its head. Amazon did this with retail, Uber did it with taxi services, Airbnb did it with travel, Tinder did it with dating, Slack is doing it with email, Spotify is doing it with music, peer-to-peer lending is changing banking.

And Trump is disrupting politics.

  Disrupters don’t fix what’s broken because they don’t innovate from inside the system. They break the mold, change our thinking about the mold and then hand us the new rules for how things work.

“He doesn’t need anybody’s money,” said Maureen Colcord, 60, a clinical dietitian from Derry.

 In poll after poll of Republicans, Mr. Trump leads among men and women, despite having used terms like “fat pigs” and “disgusting animals” to denigrate some of them. He leads among evangelical Christians, despite saying he had never had a reason to ask God for forgiveness. He leads among moderates and college-educated voters, despite a populist and anti-immigrant message thought to resonate most with conservatives and less-affluent voters. He leads among the most frequent, likely voters, even though his appeal is greatest among those with little history of voting.

Mr. Trump’s strength among less-frequent voters is a challenge for his campaign, which may lack the organizing experience and infrastructure to motivate them and turn them out in large numbers for a primary or caucus.

But those irregular voters, like Norman Kas-mikha, 41, a grocer from Shelby Township, Mich., represent a real opportunity for the Republican Party, which is determined to retake the White House in 2016 after losing the last two campaigns.

“Right now I don’t have a second choice,” Mr. Kas-mikha said. “They all blend in to me. It’s Donald Trump — and everyone else.”

“My second choice,” he added, “might be staying at home.”

Is Apple on The Fade?

      Apple is the world’s most valuable tech company. Well maybe not for much longer, say analysts. While Apple used report quartly percentage gains of more than ten percent, their recent report tells something else.   

     Apple’s number one product, the iPhone, shoved the company through the roof and into space with its sales. IPhone sales account for nearly two thirds of the company’s entire revenu. The problem of course, is that the iPhone has become a one trick pony, as sales of the iPhone have slowed in China and the reaction of the traders and investors shows though, making analysts suspect that Apple is ready to slow down and transition, much like Amazon and Facebook.

      If  Apple is to remain a growth stock, they   need to figure out what the big ‘next’ is, and they need to do it fast.

      Forget about Apple TV. It’s a dead horse.

       The Apple Watch?  Turns out only a small percentage of Apple’s core customer base is buying. 

      The Apple car?  Hmmmm…

      I just don’t see anything out there for Apple to grow on.

Higher Minimum Wage-Good or Bad?

     Originally created by FDR, candidates like Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton both want higher minimum wages; how will it effect us? 

 
     Let’s begin with the basics here. Obviously we would see slightly higher prices on goods and services that employ minimum wage workers. Sorry, that $3 hot dog you get for lunch will cost a bit more. According to statiticians, to restore the value that the minimum wage had when it was originally created, it only needs to be raised to just under ten USD.

     Raising the minimum wage is intended to help the middle class and stimulate the economy, but it’s very counter intuitive. Raising wages would begin with less capital for businesses, higher prices and overall buinesses will struggle to stay afloat, especially if they rely on the employment of low wage workers. With higher prices comes less sales as well, not only reducing the traffic coming into their business, but effectively reducing the probability of spending money on products. With less money to spend, small business owners may have to decrease or eliminate marketing, new hires, bonuses, debt service and production. All of these cutbacks in spending can have adverse effects, such as fewer customers, because of decreased advertising; increased interest payments; and inability to attract or retain salaried employees.

      But there is hope. Studies by the Fiscal Policy Institute determined the opposite result to be true, finding that small-business growth doubled in states with higher minimum wages for the four-year period after the 1997 minimum wage increase. In a 30 year period, their research later found that there is no correlation between business failure and increased minimum wage.

     When wages rise, more workers enter the job market, allowing businesses to have more workers to choose from. Having a wider pool to choose from stimulates a higher-quality work force. 

      In the end we will see more jobs being created, higher quality goods and services, and slightly higher prices to offset this change. Sounds pretty good to me.

Is Trump a Viable Candidate?

      Among business professionals and politicians alike, there is a nervousness that Trump may win the election.  

            

      While starting off as just another candidate, Trump has risen to the top in polls and his supporters are nothing to shake a stick at. This may be late news to some, it has now come to the point that he will most likely be the Republican nominee.

 

     Most candidates running in the primaries have some type of experience in government work and service. Trump’s runner up, Sen. Ted Cruz has been serving as a Texas senator since 2012, along with a degree in law from Harvard Law School. Having experience in government work may be an extraordinary advantage over Mr. Trump, but  Mr. Trump has plenty of experience of his own.

     Donald J. Trump inherited his parent’s business in 1971. Donald J. Trump changed Elizabeth Trump and Son to a name that is now his trademark, Trump. He went on to purchase the Taj Mahal casino, host his own television show, “The Apprentice”, and create Trump World Tower. Does his experience outside of government add up against his opponents experience?
  

    Here’s the answer. It doesn’t matter. People hear what he says about the second amendment and his views and immigrants and they like it. “Build a wall to keep the Mexicans out!” Trump has repeatedly said throughout his campaign. People like that, they like his obnoxious remarks and arrogant style of running. Trump may really be president at the end of the race.
