Pete Buttigieg’s Lurch to the Center Reeks of Hypocrisy

Two months before officially announcing his presidential campaign, Pete Buttigieg appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, selling himself as a generational and transformational presence in national politics. Not only could Buttigieg, 37, drive turnout among millennials, still the Democratic party’s most untapped base of likely supporters, but the mayor of South Bend would bring a movement of cross-sectional voters along with him, too, refusing to kowtow to establishment fears while pushing for an aspirational brand of progressive populism. “I think today we’re negotiating the tensions between democracy and capitalism. I’m committed…

Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney Really Shouldn’t Be Allowed on Twitter

Steam has been the recipient of its fair share of condemnation over the years for what are widely regarded as pretty dire terms for studios using the platform to release their games. Despite this, Valve’s platform remains the go-to store for digital video games, with publishers effectively biting the bullet of a hefty 30% cut solely for access to such a vast market. However, according to a new report published by IGN, Steam’s 30% share isn’t all that uncommon. In fact, it’s fairly standard within the industry. GoG.com, the Microsoft…

GE Pension Failure Could Send Investors into Arms of Bitcoin

General Electric (GE) has decided to freeze its pension plan, removing two of the key features that have come to be associated with retirement savings – secure and guaranteed – for tens of thousands of employees. GE isn’t the first company to pull the plug, but as one of the oldest traditional companies in corporate America, it sends a strong signal to employees that they can no longer bank on their employer for retirement benefits. Now, instead of shouldering the risk for employees, GE will essentially shift that risk back…

Can Daniel Jones Keep The Good Times Rolling, Make It Three In A Row?

Expectations were low for Daniel Jones when he took over the role of starting quarterback for the New York Giants in week three. All he had to do was play better than how Eli Manning had been playing—and he has. After two starts, he is 2-0, the Giants are 2-2, and they are only one game back in the NFC East. Does this mean it is safe to go ahead and get excited about the Giants? Some would say yes; many more would say no. But depending on how Sunday’s…

Dallas Cowboys’ Dak Prescott Is Best QB Under Pressure in Entire NFL

Dak Prescott is currently in the final year of his rookie contract with the Dallas Cowboys and will soon be negotiating a giant contract with his team. No doubt Dak’s agents will present the following statistic: he’s the best QB in the entire NFL in 2019 when passing under pressure. Dak Prescott Is Scrambling With the Best in the NFL This “completions under pressure” statistic does not refer to how well a player is performing in close games. Instead, it shows how Dak Prescott performs when pass-protection breaks down and…

This Dow Rebound Is Just Another Step Towards the Big Crash

The media and stock market analysts are all aflutter today following the stock market’s dramatic rebound. Thirty minutes after today’s open, the Dow cratered 300 points in a matter of minutes, only then claw its way back and finish up 122 points. The stock market has been caught in a trading range for a number of months, as news oscillates between bullish and bearish. On the one hand, the market is jittery about the ongoing trade war with China, the cratering of the manufacturing index, and the threat of presidential…

Hilarious ‘Smart Summon’ Videos Prove Tesla Makes a Clown Car

It isn’t enough that Tesla cars spontaneously combust, or that they drive into things when left to their own devices. Nor is it enough that the world seems to hinge on whether or not Elon Musk and company will deliver a certain number of cars in a quarter while every other car manufacturer has no problem meeting any form of quota. With its “Smart Summon” feature, Tesla has now become a clown car manufacturer. Tesla’s Not-So-Smart Summon The “Smart Summon” feature is designed to let Tesla owners press a button…

Impeachment Will Blow Up In Democrats’ Faces

Democrats seem determined to lose the presidential election next year. The rush to impeach President Donald Trump is just another in a long line of “nothing burgers” designed to express frustration at Democrats’ loss in 2016. One Hoax After Another The Democrats have tried to delegitimize Donald Trump from the beginning, and keep trying to dupe the American public into believing that he is not fit for office. For more than two years, Democrats tried to push a Russian collusion hoax. Everyone with a brain in their head knew that…

WeWork Meltdown Shows Pitfalls of Adam Neumann’s Personality Cult

The WeWork IPO is toast. The writing was on the wall for several days prior to the announcement, as the company’s roadshows failed at every turn. As much as Wall Street may point to the company’s risky business model as a reason for the failure of the IPO, an equally significant reason is the (now former) CEO himself, Adam Neumann. Visionary or Con Man? There is a fine line between visionary and nutcase. There’s an equally fine line between a visionary and a con man. As much as I like…

Melvin Gordon Surrender Emboldens Jaguars in Jalen Ramsey Tussle

Fans of the Los Angeles Chargers are not the only people that have been watching the standoff between the team and their star running back, Melvin Gordon. They are certainly not the only ones that were happy to see the impasse come to an end, either. Chargers fans are probably not even the people happiest to see Gordon finally join the team. That honor goes to the front office of the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jaguars, like the Chargers, have a star player that wants out of town, defensive back Jalen…
