Billionaire investor Warren Buffett is offering to make one of his employees a multi-millionaire if they can craft the perfect Sweet 16 NCAA tournament bracket.

Buffett promised to hand a winning Berkshire Hathaway employee a cool one million every year for life if they hit a perfect score with their tournament predictions, USA Today reported.

“All you have to do is get through the first bracket to win $1 million, assuming nobody else wins at the same time then you split the million,” Buffett told CNBC.

The Berkshire Hathaway CEO has also offered $100,000 for the employee who does the best. Last year, eight employees tied for the $100K consolation prize.

Out of Berkshire Hathaway’s 390,000 employees, about 100,000 filled out brackets and entered their boss’s contest, the company said.

The odds of a Berkshire Hathaway employee hitting a perfect bracket are not great. Last year no one in the country drew up a perfect bracket. And according to oddsmakers, the chances of getting a perfect prediction are one in 2.4 trillion.

Confirmed: AOC, Ilhan Omar & Rashida Tlaib Will Officially Endorse Bernie Sanders for President

Makes you wonder what cabinet positions they might’ve been promised…

Omar, Tlaib, and Ocasio-Cortez. Without question, three of the very [insert word here] people to become members of Congress in quite some time. The rookie lawmakers are the most prominent members of “The Squad” and constantly find themselves in trouble for saying and doing silly things, but you already knew that. In a surprise to literally no person on planet earth, all three Democrat Socialists will endorse Bernie Sanders for president. Not Warren. Not Biden. Not Booker or Buttigieg or Gabbard or whoever else. They’re going with their fellow Democrat Socialist. Might Democrats say they’re acting, I don’t know…sexist!? by choosing a man over a woman? Look out for it! Even though this announcement is likely to get plenty of airtime from far-left networks, it should do little to move the needle in Bernie’s favor – at least if it comes down to a general election battle between Sanders and Trump. Think about this, though…what cabinet positions were Tlaib, Omar, and AOC promised if Bernie wins? Scary thought, right? From Fox News: Fox News has learned that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., will appear with Sanders on Saturday in Queens, N.Y., at a “Bernie’s Back” rally designed to generate excitement for the senator’s campaign following his recent heart procedure. Rep. Ihan Omar, D-Minn., will also endorse the candidate, Fox News confirmed. New: Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib will also endorse Sanders, according to source. AOC will, as @daveweigel and @WaPoSean first reported, will do the same on Saturday in NYC. https://twitter.com/GregJKrieg/status/1184303508188794880?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.foxnews.com%2Fpolitics%2Focasio-cortez-omar-tlaib-reportedly-will-endorse-bernie-sanders As if everything they’ve said about Israel wasn’t bad enough, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib decided to take things a full step further. It’s pretty bad. And yet, nobody in the mainstream media will say a word – neither will any of their liberal colleagues. LOOK: Oof. Looks like both…

Pelosi Makes It Clear: Democrats Will Not Hold Vote On Impeachment Inquiry Into Trump

Game over?

Published

It’s all over, folks. Democrats, once again, thought they had President Trump caught between a rock and a hard place. And yet, once again, Democrats didn’t do their homework before pulling the trigger. Go figure, huh? With all these absolutely phony, made-up “get Trump” tactics the left has pulled, you’d think they’d have scored on at least one attempt. But nope. They’re still swingin’ for the fences and striking out like they’re wearing blindfolds when they step up to the plate. On Tuesday evening, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (CA) made it clear that her far-left party would not proceed with a vote on an impeachment inquiry. The reason, even though they won’t admit it, is because they have nothing to go on. Not a single thing. It’s just too bad the uninformed and the mainstream media kept goading liberals into thinking there was a chance. But no dice! CONFIRMED: Pelosi informs caucus there will NOT be a formal floor vote to launch the impeachment inquiry https://twitter.com/scottwongDC/status/1184240274417041408?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1184240274417041408&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fjust-in-pelosi-says-no-impeachment-vote%2F Schiff says Republicans “have completely been represented” in these closed-door depositions. They have attended and ask questions. “There is full participation by the GOP” He says that he anticipates releasing transcripts https://twitter.com/scottwongDC/status/1184246948808802306 From Fox News: The move was seemingly a boon for moderate Democrats in swing districts, who have been reluctant to have a formal vote in favor of the proceedings as the 2020 elections approach — even as several of them have also sought to appease liberal constituents by vocally backing the ongoing inquiry. A congressional aide familiar with House Democrats’ discussions told Fox News that many House Democrats did not want to be seen as letting the White House dictate how the House conducted itself. Last week, the White House sent a fiery letter to House Democrats announcing that it would not cooperate…
