Trump and Zuckerberg in Dead Heat for 2020 Election, Says Poll

Business Insider

A new survey pit Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg against President Donald Trump in a 2020 presidential contest, and the results showed a tight theoretical race.

The Tuesday poll from the Democratic firm Public Policy Polling found Zuckerberg, pegged in the survey as the Democratic presidential nominee, in a dead heat against Trump at 40% support each. The remaining 20% of respondents were unsure.

Zuckerberg won the support of 69% of voters who said they cast a ballot for Democrat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election and 9% of those who said they voted for Trump. On the flip side, Trump received the backing of 85% of Trump voters and 5% of Clinton voters in the matchup.

Zuckerberg’s favorability rating was found to be below water. Twenty-four percent of respondents held favorable views of Zuckerberg, while 29% viewed the Facebook billionaire unfavorably. Another 47% were unsure of their feelings toward Zuckerberg.

Zuckerberg, who is traveling across the US on a tour that has led many to believe he may be seeking a future in politics, has insisted that he is not taking a look at the presidency. He has said his nationwide tour is instead about getting “a broader perspective” on the country.

The Tuesday PPP poll surveyed 836 registered voters from Friday to Monday. The margin of error was 3.4 percentage points.

Rand Paul: They’re Going to Keep Obamacare

Rand Paul is trying to save President Trump from a horrific mistake, which would be signing into law any of the current Republican healthcare bills that enrich the insurance companies, while leaving more uninsured people.

Excerpt from Breitbart

I miss the old days, when Republicans stood for repealing Obamacare. Republicans across the country and every member of my caucus campaigned on repeal – often declaring they would tear out Obamacare “root and branch!”

What happened?

Now too many Republicans are falling all over themselves to stuff hundreds of billions of taxpayers’ dollars into a bill that doesn’t repeal Obamacare and feeds Big Insurance a huge bailout.

Obamacare regulations? Still here. Taxes? Many still in place, totaling hundreds of billions of dollars.

Insurance company bailouts? Those, too. Remember when Republicans complained about Obamacare’s risk corridors? Remember when we called the corridors nothing more than insurance company bailouts? I remember when one prominent GOP candidate during a presidential debate explicitly called out the Obamacare risk corridors as a bailout to insurance companies. Does anyone else?

Now, the Senate GOP plan being put forward is chock full of insurance bailout money – to the tune of nearly $200 billion. Republicans, present company excluded, now support the idea of lowering your insurance premium by giving a subsidy to the insurance company.

Remarkable. If the GOP now supports an insurance stabilization fund to lower insurance prices, maybe they now support a New Car stabilization fund to lower the price of cars. Or maybe the GOP would support an iPhone stabilization fund to lower the price of phones.

The possibilities are limitless once you accept that the federal government should subsidize prices. I remember when Republicans favored the free choice of the marketplace.

The Senate Obamacare bill does not repeal Obamacare. I want to repeat that so everyone realizes why I’ll vote “no” as it stands now:

The Senate Obamacare bill does not repeal Obamacare. Not even close.

In fact, the Senate GOP bill codifies and likely expands many aspects of Obamacare.

The Senate Obamacare-lite bill codifies a federal entitlement to insurance. With the Senate GOP bill, Republicans, for the first time, will signal that they favor a key aspect of Obamacare – federal taxpayer funding of private insurance purchases.

The bill will transfer billions of dollars to people who will then transfer billions of dollars to insurance companies. What a great business model – encourage the federal government to use taxpayer money to buy a private company’s product. Great business model, that is, if you are Big Insurance. Remarkable.

The Senate Obamacare-lite bill does what the Democrats forgot to do – appropriate billions for Obamacare’s cost-sharing reductions, aka subsidies. Really? Republicans are going to fund Obamacare subsidies that the Democrats forgot to fund?

Karl Denninger has been writing the most intelligent material on healthcare for years now. He’s shown how if we stay the course, the healthcare and health insurance industries will bankrupt the country and drive most of us into complete poverty. His work with the numbers is scary stuff.

Karl has written a one sentence law that no one in Congress will look at because they’re all in the pockets of big pharma and the big insurance and healthcare companies.

Market Ticker

Here it is:

“Notwithstanding any other provision in state or federal law, a person who presents themselves while uninsured to any provider of a medical good or service shall not be charged a price greater than that which Medicare pays for the same drug, device, service or combination thereof.”

That’s it.

One sentence.

If you want to add a penalty clause with it I propose the following:

“Any bill rendered to a person in excess of said amounts shall (1) be deemed void, with all services and goods provided as a gift without charge or taxable consequence to said consumer but not deductible by said physician or facility from any income or occupational tax and (2) is immediately due to the customer in the exact amount presented as liquidated damages for the fraud so-attempted.”

It ends the “Chargemaster” ripoff game.

It ends the $150,000 snake bite or the $80,000 scorpion sting.

It ends the $500,000 cancer treatment.

It ends all of that, immediately and instantly.

I remind you that Medicare is required to set pay rates by law at a level that in fact are profitable — that is, above cost by a modest amount — for everything it covers. Further, those pay rates are audited regularly to prove that they in fact are above cost.

Does this solve every problem? No, and in fact that would leave alone the existing monopolistic pricing systems that many medical providers, whether they be drug makers, device makers, service providers or otherwise have in place. It would do exactly nothing to get rid of the 10 paper pushers hired for every doctor or nurse, none of whom ever provide one second of care to an actual person through their entire time of employment.

But it would instantly end walking into an emergency room and getting hammered with a $50,000 bill for something that Medicare will pay $5,000 for.

Denninger has many more articles on his site about health care, most notably revolving around the idea that the anti-trust laws (Sherman Antitrust Act of 1890) should be applied to the healthcare industry.

He’s well worth the read because his common sense exposes the hoax that the Republicans and Democrats, with the exception of Rand Paul, are pulling on us.

“Morning Joe” Quits GOP Over Disgust with “Racist” Trump

Did “Morning Cuck” quit the Republican party because Mika made him? Inquiring minds want to know.

Excerpt from Daily Mail

MSNBC host and former GOP Congressman Joe Scarborough is leaving the Republican party because he is disgusted that ‘time and time again it has ‘turned a blind eye to racist Trump’.

Scarborough, 54, made the announcement during an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert as he was interviewed alongside his Morning Joe co-host and fiancee Mika Brzezinski.

Scarborough, who has come under tremendous criticism by The White House for turning on President Donald, said to rapturous applause from the audience: ‘I am a Republican but I’m not gonna be a Republican anymore.

‘I’m gonna become an Independent.’

When Colbert asked the former congressman what he made of the Republican Party’s seemingly unwavering support for the current president, Scarborough did not mince words.

‘It’s inexplicable,’ he said. ‘This is well before Donald Trump was elected president that my party betrayed their core values.

‘In 2015 Donald Trump supported a Muslim Ban and I said I could never vote for somebody who was going to ban people based on the God they worshiped.

‘Last February when he talked about David Duke and pretended that he didn’t know who he was or what the Ku Klux Klan did, you didn’t have Republicans coming out saying ‘I can never support Donald Trump because he’s racist!’, they’d have a thousand other reasons why, but they always overlooked that.’

Scarborough who served as a Republican in Florida’s 1st District from 1995 to 2001 said that he felt Trump’s message was disturbing throughout the entire campaign.

‘Time and time and time again, they (the Republican party) turned the other way and they’re doing the same thing now. and it’s actually disgusting,’ he said.

Scarborough and Brzezinski, had been friendly toward President Trump during the 2016 election but have been increasingly critical of him since his inauguration.

‘You have to ask yourself how far are the Republican party willing to go. How much of this country and our values are they willing to sell out?’ Scarborough questioned, justifying his decision to make the move to become an Independent.

Yawn.

Nobody cares what “Morning Joke” has to say or what party he belongs to. MSNBC is paying him well for his treason. Under no circumstances has anything much that this failed politician ever done been with the thought of America First.

Maxine Waters Unhinged: I’m Going to Take Ben Carson’s ‘A** Apart’

MAD MAXINE.

Let Mad Maxine rant. As one of the leading faces of the Democrat party she gives away the nuttiness of the party and the lack of intelligence of blacks.

By the way, if Trump said he was going to take someone’s ass apart the press would be reporting that Trump was advocating murder.

Breitbart

On Saturday, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) vowed to take Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson’s “ass apart” while speaking at the Essence Festival in New Orleans.

“Ben Carson was appointed to be the HUD secretary,” she reportedly said. “He knows nothing about the mission of HUD. He doesn’t care about people in public housing. He believes that if you are poor, it is your own fault. And he doesn’t know the difference between an immigrant and a slave.”

Waters then promised: “And if he thinks when he comes before my committee where I am the ranking member [of the Financial Services Committee] that I am going to give him a pass… I am going to take his a** apart.”

She also blasted Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos.

“Jeff Sessions is a racist, he’s a throwback. We know his record, we know the statements that he’s made,” she said. “He really did like the KKK until he learned that they smoke pot.”

Waters said DeVos has “never seen the inside of a classroom” and never “served in education.”

Waters, as Breitbart News reported, also said she has “taken off the gloves” to fight to get President Donald Trump impeached.

“We’re going to lock him up,” she said, before leading the crowd in an “impeach 45” chant.

Top Democrat OUTRAGED that Trump is Delaying TRANNIES IN THE MILITARY

KRISTEN BECK, EX-NAVY SEAL WENT FROM MALE TO “FEMALE.

In case you were unaware, the Trump administration has delayed the admission of so-called transgenders into the United States military by six months.

This delay has of course left the left in a state of outrage. For them, there seems to be no other mood than outrage.

“Chicks with d*cks” and dudes with vaginas are not going to help military readiness by their presence in uniform. But their presence will promote the Marxist “inclusion” ideology, legitimizing what in reality is a form of mental illness. These freaks have a high suicide rate, so the military better have enough backup personnel to deal with that issue.

The correct question to ask is why do we need trans in the military? The answer is that we don’t.

The Hill

House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) condemned the Trump administration on Saturday for issuing a delay in allowing transgender soldiers to serve in the military.

Hoyer, the No. 2 House Democrat, called the Pentagon’s move “outrageous” and argued it was done “without providing any evidence.”

“It is outrageous that the Trump Administration would issue a delay in allowing transgender Americans to serve openly in our military without providing any evidence to support such a decision,” Hoyer said in a statement.

“We need to ensure that all those who are talented, driven, and capable and who wish to serve in defense of our country – often in mission-critical positions – are able to do so,” he said. “If the Pentagon cannot adequately explain or justify this reversal in the policy implementation, it ought not to pursue it.”

Did Hillary Get the FBI to Pay for the Smear Job on Trump? (Video)

Comey was corrupt. Acting Director McCabe is corrupt. A number of agents are corrupt. The FBI is a mess.

If anybody knows Hillary Clinton and is willing to spill the beans on her, it’s Dick Morris.

I need to Tweet to Dick that he needs to lose weight. He’s a national treasure for getting the truth out about Hillary.

Dick explains

From the youtube comments:

It’s worse than that, since after spending taxpayer dollars to aid Hillary’s campaign, FBI used that bogus dossier as an excuse to violate the Trump campaign’s Fourth-amendment rights. False-accusations, false statements on government documents, collusion between FBM (or is it FBI?…) and Hillary campaign, are only a few of the charges Mueller will not pursue. Just as Comey smeared good to look like evil and pretended evil was good, so it appears, will Mueller.
