President Trump Pulls 3 Points Ahead Of Biden In New Florida Poll

Published

on

A brand new poll from the state of Florida has President Trump taking a small lead — 3 points — over Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, but that’s not the only development worthy of note.

It also seems that the president is picking up more of the African-American vote in the state too, something which no doubt has Biden and his buddies a little bit nervous.

Pollster and founder of InsiderAdvantage, Matt Towery Sr., predicted Trump would win Florida in 2016, just days ahead of the election, pointing to polls not accurately depicting support for the president. He also predicted Barack Obama’s 2008 win.

“Once again, based on poor data and or weighting, many of the polls we are seeing simply are not picking up the actual level of support for President Trump,” said Towery. “What stands out in this poll is that Trump is actually picking up 12% of the African American vote in the Sunshine State.”

“These results are still within the margin of error, so Florida remains up for grabs. But to paint it blue or red on any projected electoral map at this point would be pure folly,” Towery stated.

The poll was conducted between the days of October 6-7 with a survey of 400 voters through live calls and interactive voice response calls. There’s a margin of error of plus or minus 4.9 percent.

Florida is a critical state in this election, so the fact that polls have Trump pulling a head is a statement to the fact that many individuals who live there are on board with the president’s agenda.

And, of course, we all know that you must take polls with a grain of salt, especially after what happened in 2016. Just a few more weeks and we’ll hopefully know whether or not Trump is getting another term.

Amazon Rolls Out Creepy ‘Pay By Palm’ Hardware at Whole Foods

Is this one of the harbingers of a cashless society?

Published

Throughout much of modern history, Americans and their cash were two separate things.  One was a human being, breathing and walking about, earning money.  The money was an inanimate commodity of varying value that we used to keep the organism alive, fat, and happy. But in the future, it seems as though we may find ourselves intrinsically, and anatomically indistinguishable from our bank account.  In fact, it appears as though Amazon is banking on it. Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) said it is rolling out biometric technology at its Whole Foods stores around Seattle starting on Wednesday, letting shoppers pay for items with a scan of their palm. The move shows how Amazon is bringing some of the technology already in use at its namesake brick-and-mortar Go and Books stores to the grocery chain it acquired in 2017. The system, called Amazon One, lets customers associate a credit card with their palm print. It offers a contact-less alternative to cash and card payments, Amazon said. Of course, the move is being regarded as a terrifying leap into Orwellian territory by privacy experts, as it appears to push us ever closer to a cashless society where hackers and power failures could doom us all to poverty in the blink of an eye.

Fraternal Order of Police Responds to LeBron James’ Tweet Fiasco

And they were NOT happy.

The politicization of American sports has been ongoing for some time, perhaps decades, but the most recent acceleration of this melding has come thanks to the power of social media and the blurring of the line between celebrity and athlete. At the forefront of this movement has been the NBA, and, more specifically, superstar LeBron James. This week, James came under fire for a tweet in which he referenced the Derek Chauvin trial’s guilty verdicts, with a photo of another officer who was involved in the shooting of a young black girl and text stating “you’re next”. The tweet was seen as a threat by many, including the Fraternal Order of Police who responded harshly. On Wednesday, James tweeted a photo of the officer involved in the shooting with a caption reading “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.” The tweet has since been deleted. James was reacting to the deadly police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant. Hours later, the National Fraternal Order of Police tweeted a photo of James’ original tweet, saying: “[email protected], with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless. The officer saved a young girl’s life. No amount of gaslighting will change that fact.” James attempted to walk back the tweet after deleting it, by issuing an explanation that garnered only a lukewarm response online.
