Bannon’s Interview: A Masterful Move To Help President Trump?

Published

The left-wing American Prospect has published an interview with White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon that is catching lots of attention – and moving the national conversation away from Charlottesville.

Bannon has said he wasn’t aware he was giving an interview when he called editor Robert Kuttner to discuss an article he wrote on China, the angle of which Bannon admired.

In his conversation with Kuttner, Bannon said, “Ethno-nationalism – it’s losers. It’s a fringe element. I think the media plays it up too much, and we gotta…help crush it more.”

Bannon also relished the Democrats talking about identity politics, saying “I want them to talk about racism every day. If the left is focused on race and identity, and we go with economic nationalism, we can crush the Democrats.”

Some strategic thinkers, including Mike Cernovich, see Bannon’s surprise “interview” as a way to draw media attention away from President Trump and the unpleasant conversation surrounding the violence in Charlottesville.

Whether Bannon is indeed playing “4-D Chess” or not, the media is certainly taking the bait.

INTERNET REACTS: Mike Cernovich Breaks Bombshell John Conyers Sex Abuse Story

Published

on

The internet is exploding at the sensational breaking news by Mike Cernovich about Democrat Rep. John Conyers’ repeated sexual abuse of female staffers and use of taxpayer funds for settlements related to that abuse.

Buzzfeed recognizes Mike Cernovich gave them the story, stating:

“Cernovich said he gave the documents to BuzzFeed News for vetting and further reporting, and because he said if he published them himself, Democrats and congressional leaders would “try to discredit the story by attacking the messenger.” He provided them without conditions. BuzzFeed News independently confirmed the authenticity of the documents with four people directly involved with the case, including the accuser.”

BuzzFeed’s article continues:

“Documents from the complaint obtained by BuzzFeed News include four signed affidavits, three of which are notarized, from former staff members who allege that Conyers, the ranking Democrat on the powerful House Judiciary Committee, repeatedly made sexual advances to female staff that included requests for sexual favors, contacting and transporting other women with whom they believed Conyers was having affairs, caressing their hands sexually, and rubbing their legs and backs in public. Four people involved with the case verified the documents are authentic.”

Over on Twitter, reaction to the news of Cernovich’s involvement in the story has been swift and sometimes salty:

New Study Confirms Twitter’s Power To Shift Elections

Published

In a new report from MIT Tech Review titled “How Tweets Translate into Votes,” the intellectual powerhouse makes some fairly profound claims.

The agency states, “The role of Twitter in politics has never been more prominent. President Obama, sometimes called the first social-media president, clearly outperformed his rivals in terms of popularity and output. President Trump also uses Twitter, albeit more controversially, to drive debate, air grievances, and set policy.”

The report continues, “Clearly, social media plays a major role in political discourse. Many politicians send hundreds or thousands of messages during election campaigns and invest considerable resources into their social-media presence. And that raises an interesting question. Does this effort translate into votes?”

With the prominence of social media in politics and given its vast reach and persuasive potential, how valuable is twitter and other social media to political elections? How much pull does this technological Goliath really harness?

According to a study published out of Cornell University Library representing out of the UK, “The term for change in Twitter use is positive and statistically significant. Those who used Twitter more also improved their vote share outcome.”

The study continues, “The term for change in Twitter use is positive and statistically significant. Those who used Twitter more also improved their vote share outcome.” and “Overall the empirical evidence that Twitter media use does have a positive effect on votes is strong.”

MIT Tech Review adds, “In 2015, 87 percent of incumbent politicians had Twitter accounts, compared with only 73 percent of challengers.
In 2017, the difference was even bigger. In this case, 84 percent of incumbents had accounts, compared with only 58 percent of challengers.”

Mit also pointed out other figures from the study, “MPs that had a Twitter account typically had vote shares around 7- 9% higher than those who did not,” say Bright and co.

“MPs that had a Twitter account typically had vote shares around 7- 9% higher than those who did not,” say Bright and co.

And they calculate that politicians can claim an extra 1 percent share of the vote by increasing the number of tweets they send out by a factor of between 0.28 and 1.75.

That might look like a small increase, but in many districts it would have been decisive.

“Around 14% of the electoral competitions which form the basis of our study were won by a margin of less than 5 percentage points, and 4 percent of them were won by a margin of less than 1 percentage point.”

The entire study can be found here.

Knowing this information it is no wonder independent media outlets and prominent social media powerhouses like Mike Cernovich, receive so much backlash from the political establishment. They are starting to feel the pressure being put onto them from more and more outspoken voices in the newly resurging conservative political movement.

As the use of social media continues to grow I hypothesize that the overall political pull of the users over the establishment’s political aspirations will become so important it will eventually change the entire way that elections are held, across the entire planet.

Study: Obamacare Is Unsustainable, Premiums To Rise By As Much As 69% In 2018

Published

on

A new revealing new study has been published by Alvere Health claiming that Obamacare is completely unsustainable.

Alvera claims, “New analysis from Avalere finds that the 2018 exchange market will see silver premiums rise by an average of 34%. According to Avalere’s analysis of filings from Healthcare.gov states, exchange premiums for the most popular type of exchange plan (silver) will be 34% higher, on average, compared to last year.”

Alvera reports that some states in particular that will feel the brunt of the skyrocketing financial burden, “Average premium increases will vary significantly by state. For example, Iowa will see the highest jump in average silver premium, 69%, over 2017, while Alaska will see a decrease in premiums for 2018, at -22%. Exact premium amounts consumers can expect to pay will vary depending on their location and selected plan. Notably, in states with limited plan participation, the average silver premium may be lower than the second lowest cost silver.”

Breitbart released an article which reads:

“Caroline Pearson, senior vice president at Avalere, blamed the Trump administration for ending the CSR program as one of the principal reasons for the skyrocketing premiums. In a statement, Pearson said, “Plans are raising premiums in 2018 to account for market uncertainty and the federal government’s failure to pay for cost-sharing reductions. These premium increases may allow insurers to remain in the market and enrollees in all regions to have access to coverage.”

Investors Business Daily reports, “Earlier this year, Aetna and Wellmark Blue Cross & Blue Shield announced that they were pulling out of Iowa’s ObamaCare exchange, leaving only Medica, which was also threatening to leave. Not surprisingly, Medica has used its newfound monopoly status to push for increasingly higher rates, while trying to pin the blame President Trump for the increases.”

Investors Business Daily continues, “The seeds of today’s double-digit premium increases and collapsing competition were planted long before Trump took the oath of office. In fact, they were embedded right there in the law President Obama signed in 2010.”

As much as the liberal media and politicians continue claiming that Trump is causing the problems within Obamacare, don’t let them fool you. These Problems were written right into the very structure of the system itself. These catastrophes were going to happen no matter who would have won the election.
