  • 2020: Sanders has big lead, Zuckerberg the dark horse, McAuliffe dead last

    09/13/2017 6:42:32 AM PDT · by RoosterRedux · 52 replies
    The upcoming 2020 Democratic presidential is Sen. Bernie Sanders' to lose, according to a new election poll. Sanders has a huge lead over rivals Sen. Elizabeth Warren and former Vice President Joe Biden, both of whom are eyeing a bid. The dark horse appears to be Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg. Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a media and Clinton favorite, is dead last with just 1 percent supporting his candidacy in the Zogby Analytics survey of likely Democratic primary voters provided exclusively to Secrets. Sanders, who was edged out by Hillary Rodham Clinton in 2016, is her heir apparent. Some 28 percent...

  • Koch Brothers Line Up with DACA Illegals to Pressure Republican Congress to Pass Amnesty

    Long-time pro-mass immigration billionaires Charles and David Koch became the latest force to pressure congressional Republicans to nullify the end of DACA with a legislative amnesty Thursday. Koch spokespeople said the brothers will throw their weight behind the growing effort to force a two-house GOP majority that has refused to pass either funding for the southern border wall or the RAISE Act, a key nationalist immigration reform, to quickly pass an amnesty for those who were once exempted from federal immigration law under President Barack Obama’s DACA. The Koch amenability to open borders and amnesty is nothing new. In 2013,...

    Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg declared last week that the social media site was dedicated to removing any content “that promotes or celebrates hate crimes.” Mark Zuckerberg posted to Facebook recently condemning the recent events at Charlottesville which saw three deaths over the course of the weekend as far-left and far-right protesters clashed. The Facebook CEO stated that the company would be watching out for rallies in the future, stating, “With the potential for more rallies, we’re watching the situation closely.” “We won’t always be perfect, but you have my commitment that we’ll keep working to make Facebook a place where...
  • 2020 Zuck v. Trump: Is Mark Zuckerberg Running for President? (God help us!!!)

    Donald Trump did it. He crossed the line from real estate, tycoon-billionaire to the leader of the free world. Now, he has the keys to power. Trump says he wants to repair the damage caused by career politicians so “America can win again.” But, what would be the reason Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg would run for president? It’s likely the usual leftist agenda with one exception: automation. Revolutionizing the way we interact isn’t enough (re: Facebook). Now he wants to peddle pro-Silicon Valley policies. In his Palo Alto home, Zuckerberg has created a robot butler and almost every element of...
  • Why Facebook should pay us a basic income

    CNBC ^ | 09 August 2017 | John Thornhill
    Like other Silicon Valley entrepreneurs, Mr. Zuckerberg believes that thousands of jobs are going to be swept away by new technologies, such as driverless cars. In such a world, he says, we need to invent a new social contract. Basic income could be part of the answer. Some argue that Alaska is a special case as it has just distributed the fruits of an oil bonanza. But it may be possible to find other sources of revenue to fund similar schemes elsewhere. Some have suggested a land value tax. Others have argued for a financial transactions tax. But there is...

    The movie Zuckerberg is a highly credible character, a computer genius located somewhere on the autistic spectrum with minimal to non-existent social skills. But that’s not what the man is really like. In real life, Zuckerberg was studying for a degree with a double concentration in computer science and – this is the part people tend to forget – psychology. People on the spectrum have a limited sense of how other people’s minds work; autists, it has been said, lack a ‘theory of mind’. Zuckerberg, not so much. He is very well aware of how people’s minds work and in...

    Mark Zuckerberg has reportedly hired Hillary Clinton’s pollster, Joel Benenson, as a consultant, a move that is sure to add to the growing speculation that the Facebook founder is running for political office. According to Politico, Zuckerberg, 33, hired Benenson to advise his and his wife’s charity, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative. Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, have pledged to donate 99 percent of their net worth — which currently sits at $45 billion — to charity. Zuckerberg, a California resident, has long been rumored to have political ambitions. His announcement earlier this year that he planned a cross-country tour...

    The idea of a universal basic income — monthly cash payments from the government to every individual, working or not, with no strings attached — is gaining traction, thanks in part to endorsements from Silicon Valley celebs. Some see it as a way to compensate for the traditional jobs with benefits that will be wiped out by robotics, artificial intelligence, self-driving vehicles, globalization and the gig economy. Others see it as a way to reduce income inequality or to create a more efficient, less stigmatizing safety net than our current mishmash of welfare benefits. “I think ultimately we will have...

    Mark Zuckerberg has been traveling around the country meeting people while denying he has any intentions of running for office. And yet, here he is making what amounts to policy recommendation for the United States. You could call this the first major plank in his non-platform. From his Facebook post: Priscilla and I spent the weekend around Homer, Alaska as part of the Year of Travel challenge. It’s beautiful here. One thing that stood out to us is how different Alaska’s social safety net programs are in a way that provides some good lessons for the rest of our country....

    More than 100 undocumented students from the Bay Area will have the chance to go to college this fall thanks in part to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan. Over the last several years, the couple has given millions of dollars through their Chan-Zuckerberg Initiative to TheDream.US, a nonprofit based in Washington, D.C., that awards scholarships to undocumented students. This year, the organization will award 139 four-year scholarships worth $3.4 million to local students, part of an effort to send 400 undocumented immigrants from the Bay Area to colleges in the region by 2020. “We truly believe...

    Greetings from lovely Aspen, Colorado, where I am attending the Aspen Ideas Festival as part of their scholar program. I have no idea how I ended up in this program, as I did not apply for it, and my relationship with the Ideas Festival over the years has been mostly made up of mocking their event subject matter on Twitter (“Rotary: rediscovering the beauty of a phone which expects something of us, as opposed to the reverse” #aspenideas). But I am here nonetheless, ready for the live recording of PodSaveAmerica and the session on whether Robots are the future of...

    Mark Zuckerberg recently stated his desire to have Facebook act as a community for it’s users, replacing “churches” and “community support groups.” Speaking at Facebook’s first Communities Summit in Chicago last week, Mark Zuckerberg discussed a number of topics, including Facebook’s new mission statement which was changed from “connecting the world” to a new goal, to “give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together.” ...

    Would the Mark Zuckerberg of 2017—who recently gave the commencement address at Harvard—have started Facebook? Likewise, would the Mark Zuckerberg of 2004—who was instrumental in building the world’s largest, most popular social networking website in the world—have given the 2017 commencement address at Harvard University? As has been well documented over the last several days—most notably by Rush Limbaugh—Zuckerberg’s 2017 commencement address was laden with socialistic language and ideas that run quite contrary to what is necessary to build a company with thousands of employees and whose annual revenue is measured in billions of dollars. (Ask Venezuelans.)
