Sinan's Prediction and What's Next



I believe that Hillary will win the election based on the polls but nothing is for certain. I guarantee you that Hillary will fight for right-wing and corrupt policies from day one. She won't fight for us and end the corruption in this country, but she will continue to represent the corruption just like Bill Clinton did as president. Bill fought for NAFTA and made a secret deal with Newt Gingrich (Speaker of the House at the time) to privatize social security. It didn't happen because of Monica Lewinski. He also deregulated the telecommunications industry and as a result, the 6 biggest companies own 90% of our media. Those same companies give "bribe money" to politicians so the media is biased as a result. Hillary will fight for the same conservative policies. She would probably privatize social security and support the TPP. She would probably not stand up against climate change because she takes money from oil companies. She wouldn't fight for us, she would fight for her donors.

Whatever happens, we have to fight for our democracy back. The corrupt media will tell you that the general election is the most important but they are wrong. Activism and demanding for free and fair elections is the most important.

I hope everyone sees the mess the establishment has put us through. They put a corrupt Hillary Clinton who is dealing with email scandals against a toxic and childish Donald Trump. They not only did this in the presidential elections but also in the senate elections. I'll give you an example of the Florida senate election. We could have had a progressive and strong Alan Grayson going up against a corrupt Marco Rubio but instead, the Democratic establishment put Paul Murphy up against him. Paul Murphy is right-wing and corrupt. They believed in him and guess what happened, he lost!

Good Luck America and remember, whatever happens, we will hold our politicians accountable

Trump's "Celebrity Cabinet"

    


  I found a really interesting article I wanted to share with you. Before you bubble in Donald Trump's name on your ballot, think about the blasphemy in the people he surrounds himself with. People very close to the Trump campaign leaked a list of top potential candidates for some of the most important cabinet positions. First, of, he wants Newt Gingrich as his Secretary of State. Imagine the destruction this guy can do with other countries. Newt Gingrich is the guy who said the United Nations is a corrupt bureaucracy that protects dictators. This is the guy who has a chance of making our foreign policy. Secondly, for attorney general, Trump wants Rudy Guliani. If you hated stop and frisk in New York, get ready because it's about to happen on a national level. For Cheif of Staff, the lead advisor to the president, Trump surprisingly wants RNC Chairman Reince Priebus probably because no other GOP leadership has supported him. The last name that I want to discuss, is Trump's campaign finance director and former Goldman Sachs CEO, Steven Mnuchin!!! Now if you know me, you know how I feel about corrupt corporations like Goldman Sachs. Trump is supposed to be a "Washington Outsider" and according to him, he is "self-funding" his campaign. Obviously, that is not true and he's a horrible businessman who doesn't know how to manage his money so he needs to "borrow" money. Steven Mnuchin as corrupt as it gets. He has donated over $120,000 in "bribe money" over the past two decades. According to Politico, "He gave $7,000 to Clinton’s 200 and 2006 Senate bids, and also contributed to her 2008 Democratic presidential campaign. He contributed $2,300 to President Barack Obama’s 2007 presidential campaign. 
In 2011 he contributed $2,500 on two occasions to Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign and gave $20,000 to the Republican National Committee in 2012. He has also contributed to John Edwards, Chuck Schumer, Rudy Giuliani, Al Gore and John Kerry," These are the corrupt and dangerous people who might advise the next president. Let's make sure these people stay out of power. There is a reason they don't have power. Let's keep it that way.

An Inside Look Into Trump's Unethical Business Practices

Donald Trump has got into a lot of trouble because of "Trump University" as he should. Students paid tens of thousands of dollars to attend this so called "university." In New York, it is illegal to call something that is not an accredited university, a university. As a result, Trump actually took the word "university" out of the name. Trump went on record to say he "handpicked experts to teach at Trump University". These so called experts are employees from fast food restaurants! That's not a joke. The course was supposed to cover real estate, and he picked guys from McDonald's to teach the curriculum. Now you might be thinking, what is the scam? The scam is that there were no classes! Students paid tens of thousands of dollars and when they went, they found out it was a scam. Not only that, but the "university" refused to give the students their money back. 

 
This is how Donald Trump makes his money. Does Warren Buffett bait students in charging them tens of thousands of dollars to teach his secrets on investing and then not have any classes? No. Does Bill Gates charge students tens of thousands of dollars by claiming to sell his secrets about computer programming and than not have any classes? No. Does Mark Zuckerberg promise students tens of thousands of dollars to reveal his secrets on creating an innovative product and then not have any classes? No. Do you know why? It is because rich and wealthy people make money by doing real business, not fraud and scams. Trump doesn't know how to run a business. He had four companies and all four of them went bankrupt. In the real estate market, he lost so much money that no solid investor or financial institution will loan him money to buy real estate. He just sells his name. He allows people to put the name Trump on hotels, golf courses, casinos, etc., and calls it real estate! So how is Trump rich? It is because of his father Fred Trump. If your father gave you $400 Million and put it into an index fund like Donald Trump' father, you would probably be more rich than Donald Trump. Donald Trump took out the money from the index fund when
the market was low. Everyone knows that when the market is low, it's the best time to buy. If Trump would have kept the money in the fund longer, it would have gone up to about $6 Billion. His net worth is estimated at about $2 Billion with every benefit of the doubt which does not include any expenses, debts or bankruptcies! If he would have kept the money in even longer, he would have had $11 Billion!

  Donald Trump's business is smokes and mirrors! If he is going to run America like his businesses, we're in trouble...

Why the Homework System Does Not Work

  I get a lot of criticism when it comes to my position on the U.S school system. Before I go on, I would like to clarify, I strongly believe in education but I also strongly believe in education reform. Let's start of with some statistics. The U.S ranks 17th in education. (25th in Math, 17th in Science and 14th in reading).
I was talking to a friend about the U.S school system compared to the rest of the world. That friend was telling me that the U.S school system is the best, always was the best and always will be the best.  This really proves that we are stuck in a bubble. When I say I am against the homework system, I am not saying it for my benefit as a student, I am saying it for the future of America. The U.S school system has evolved but the purpose of the system has not evolved. The purpose of the U.S school system is to create employees not employers. Robert Kiyosaki has said on multiple occasions, "The school system teaches kids to work hard for money rather than have money work hard for them." The homework system has a lot to do with that. The U.S school system is designed in such a way that the A students work for the C students due to the fact that the A
students are hard workers as they always work hard for the best grade. Finland is number 1 in education and they do not have homework. All work is done in the classroom where they make mistakes rather than do the work at home and have the support of parents, grandparents, siblings, etc.

  With no homework system, kids will make mistakes and people don't learn from success. People learn from mistakes and when a student takes a test or does homework, it is about getting it over with, and then forgetting what they learned. If a student does bad on a test or on a homework assignment, they won't learn what they did wrong. That is why the homework system does not work and most of the major countries in the world do not use the system.

Bernie Sanders is our Best Chance at Beating Donald Trump

Two weeks ago, I was talking to a friend and he was telling me about how we need to stop Donald Trump. He made a false assumption that many Americans make and I don't blame them for that. I blame the establishment media. Anyways, he was telling me about how Hillary Clinton is the best candidate to beat Trump. I asked him where he got his facts from and he was blank. He was scurrying around until he finally said, "who cares about facts, it's obvious." Like I said, these are false assumptions that you believe but it's not your fault. The establishment media lies and you believe their lies and there bios opinions. In this blog, I am going to explode that myth. First of all, polls show that in the general election, Bernie Sanders is ahead of Trump by 11%. Hillary is winning against Trump by 3% and that lead is getting smaller everyday. You might be thinking, it's too early. That's a fair judgment that I will gladly consider which leads me to my next point. That point being independents everywhere can vote in the general election and that makes up much of Bernie's supporters and much of the voters overall. Now I understand that the chances of Bernie beating Hillary are slim right now, but don't tell me that it is impossible with a California primary coming up with about 500 delegates at stake. And don't tell me that Bernie should drop out so he could have a cabinet position with Hillary. The difference between Bernie and a regular politician is that Bernie is not doing this for himself, he is doing this for the American people and America's future. I urge you to rebel against the establishment media. Don't listen to what they have to say. They are completely bios. Mark my words: even if there is no chance of Bernie beating Hillary, it is important that Bernie stays in the race till the end because he will make the millennials life long, left-wing progressive Democrats. If Bernie doesn't win this time around, we will win the next one. Think about it: Bernie is only losing by 300 delegates with a bios establishment media not giving him any coverage and not taking money from Hench funds. When I say we will win the next one, I am not necessarily saying Bernie is going to win next time, I am saying the progressive movement will win next time!

Does Bernie Sanders Have A Chance In New York? Better Yet, Does He Have A Chance To Win The Nomination?



Today is the New York Primary and is very important due to the fact that there are over two hundred pledged delegates at stake. Bernie Sanders is trailing in the polls by 3.9% as Hillary Clinton has 53% and Bernie Sanders has 47%. It is a crucial primary for Sanders to win because if he wins, even though he will be a little bit behind in the delegate count, I think he becomes a favorite again. So, what if Arizona is the last state Hillary Clinton will win? Now, I understand that she is leading big in Maryland but she still is nearly winning in New York and Pennsylvania as the lead is getting smaller every day. New York and Pennsylvania are voting on March 26th and there are even more delegates on the 26th then today. What if he wins both of those? There is something important but outrageous I must clarify about Bernie Sanders that the establishment media constantly gets wrong and that is the fact that she is only leading by 194 delegates. If you go to CBS or NBC, they’ll tell you that she is winning by over six hundred! They count super delegates but the super delegates have not voted yet. Even the DNC says that you shouldn’t count them because they haven’t voted yet and very often, super delegates switch their votes. That’s what happened in last election when Hillary Clinton’s super delegates switched to Obama! So there is two possibilities. The first is that the establishment media don’t know what there doing at don’t know anything about politics or they’re purposely lying about it. So NBC, CBS and all the other media that does that, make note of which one you prefer because they did not vote yet and they often switch their vote. The actual delegate count is 1,299 for Clinton and 1,205 for Sanders. That is much closer then any of the media says it is. He has won the last 8 out out of 9 states. Did you know that there are 20 caucuses and 20 primaries left to go? Did you know that over 1,600 delegates are left to go? And can a 194 delegate lead be made up with over 1,600 delegates left? Of course it can! The media is always saying that Cruz can catch up to Trump and it’s such a close race while on the Democratic side, they say that Sanders should drop out and if he’s going to stay in the race, he should tone it down. That’s what I hear everyday on television. Do you want to know the truth? Trump has twice as big of a lead on Cruz than Clinton has on Sanders. So is Bernie Sanders still in this race? Yes he’s still in this race! The establishment media has already made their bet on Hillary Clinton because there is no way they want Bernie Sanders coming in there and fixing corruption in politics that is leading to 4.4 billion dollars and political TV ads. So, do you think the media is going to come and help Bernie Sanders and take 4.4 billion dollars out of their pocket? Not a chance! Instead there going to say, come on, this race is already over! Don’t vote for Bernie, don’t vote for Bernie in New York. Don’t vote for him in California. Please stay at home, please! Don’t take our money away. And that’s what the corporate media is doing. The reality is this is a very close race and yes, New York is huge but there are still many delegates in many other states. They have put Bernie in this position before and what did he do? He went on a massive run winning states left and right. During that run, what did they tell you? They said oh, none of those matter! Those states are weird, their western, etc. They found every excuse in the world to dismiss those wins. In Wisconsin, there was a headline that read, Bernie Sanders will win but they won’t matter anyways. It doesn’t even matter how large his win his wins are because according to the media, Bernie Sanders is not allowed to win!

If Republicans are Serious About Stopping Trump, Rubio Needs to Drop-Out Immediately

Conservative Outfitters asked 28,000 Voters if Marco Rubio should drop out.
 An overwhelming 90% said Rubio should drop out!

  2 days ago, Donald Trump won Mississippi and Michigan. There was no surprise Trump won Mississippi but in Michigan, there was a chance that John Kasich was going to win and if he did, this probably would not be a segment I would write about. In Michigan, Trump had 37%, Kasich had 25%, Cruz had 24% and Rubio had 9%. The obvious biggest loser of yesterday was Marco Rubio. Rubio only had 9% in Michigan and 5% in Mississippi. Republicans say that if Trump wins the presidency, it will be the end of the Republican party. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan along with other conservative politicians are already trying to come up with an alternative to the Republican Party!

If I am a donor, I would go to Rubio right now and say, listen, I can't have you in the race taking away votes from John Kasich in Ohio. You're probably wondering if this is a typo. It is not a typo. Yes, John Kasich because my least favorite candidate is Donald Trump, my second least
favorite is Ted Cruz (which is what the donors are thinking right now) so I would take a big gamble and see if John Kasich could have a great showing on March 15th and maybe even win Illinois. If he can't, Kasich needs to get out immediately and they need to invest everything we got in Cruz to take on Trump and hopefully get a good result. Now, why would you want Rubio to drop out oppose to Kasich? Because Rubio is getting destroyed everywhere and is losing by a large margin in his home state of Florida but Kasich has not emerged yet and he has a great shot at Ohio. According to Market Watch, "Kasich has an 8% chance of winning the nomination, Rubio has a 6% chance." That's pretty good for someone who was polling last in almost all of the primaries, projected to win in his home state of Ohio and his expectations are low opposed to Marco Rubio who had high expectations and is losing by 20% in his home state of Florida. 

  In conclusion, Rubio should drop out. The media and donors should take a big gamble on Kasich because he has a great shot at Ohio and possibly Illinois with hope that Kasich can beat Trump. If that doesn't work out, invest everything into Cruz.

  Note, I do not support John Kasich but at the same time I have nothing against Kasich. I am just explaining that the next move the Republicans should make is having Rubio drop-out and taking a chance and attempt to make Kasich their mainstream candidate.

Speaking of Disaster, TrumpCare!


Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump released details on what could potentially replace the Affordable Care Act. You'll probably be surprised that individual elements of Trump's plan are a disaster. I'm going to breakdown all seven elements that are mentioned on Trumpcare.com. Note, Trumpcare.com is not owned by Donald Trump, a specific Super PAC or a political figure. It is an accurate source of information I used to understand what Donald Trump' guidelines for his
alternative are



Point 1:
Completely repeal Obamacare. We must eliminate the individual mandateNo person should be required to buy insurance unless he or she wants to

Repealing Obamacare means repealing pre-existing conditions which are great but keep in mind, we have to focus on what's best for the country. We know that Trump means he wants to get rid of pre existing conditions when he said he wants to eliminate the mandate but other than that, he has not mentioned anything else about the subject. Even though there is no other mention about the subject in this section, I still give it an A because their are only 2 main points that are straight forward, the mandate and the cost of the insurance

Grade: A

Wishlist For Healthcare (Points 2-7)

Point 2:
Modify existing law that inhibits the sale of health insurance across state lines

This actually sounds good because it would be great to see insurance companies compete for the lowest price but it really is not because insurance companies can set their interests rates as high as they want as long as it fits the criteria in the state's laws. That results in insurance companies only going to specific states. That means your state has a great chance of being left out. That is why this process is not in place anymore. 

Grade: F


Point 3:
Allow individuals to fully deduct health insurance premium payments from their tax returns under the current tax system

This will not help anyone in the middle class that does not have employer insurance because they won't be able to afford it. Not only that but anyone who has a pre-existing condition will not be included

Grade: F
Point 4:
Allow individuals to use Health Savings Accounts (HSAs). Contributions into HSA's should be tax-free and should allow to accumulate

For those who are not familiar with the term HSA, it is a tax advantaged medical savings account available to taxpayers in the U.S who are enrolled in the HDHP. If individuals are allowed to use HSAs, this could generate around $50 a month that could be used to pay hospital bills. Lets be honest though, $50 a month will not play a vital role when paying hundreds of thousands of dollars in hospital bills. I give this point a C- due to the fact that it's still money.

Grade: C-

Point 5:
Require price transparency from all healthcare providers, especially doctors and healthcare organizations like clinics and hospitals

Out of all of the things Trump would want to keep from the Affordable Care Act, he chooses this! Give me a break! This means that the healthcare providers and organizations have the ability to know all of your bid prices, ask prices and trading quantities (stock, good, service) at any given time. Trump supporters, do you realize that Trump is going to make healthcare worse? Do you realize out of all of the things Trump could keep from the Affordable Care Act, he keeps this and there is nothing else he keeps? Giving this point an F would be lenient!

Grade: F

Point 6:
Block-grant Medicaid to the states

This is every Republican politicians dream. The problem is that it would make the cost of Medicaid go up tremendously, cause a lot more inflation and reduce benefits. The good part about it is that it would cut federal spending by $913 billion dollars. I believe there are other ways to cut government spending tremendously and this is a way where people will suffer financially. I give this a C- because it can result in a cut in federal spending.

Grade: C-

Point 7:
Remove barriers to entry into free markets for drug providers that offer safe, reliable and cheaper products

This is a complicated way to lower drug prices. What the government needs to do is what Donald Trump does for a living, they need to negotiate. They need to negotiate with the drug companies for lower prices. This point makes no sense.

Grade: F


If you are planning to vote for Donald Trump, keep in mind that Trumpcare will be much worse than what most the conservative politicians complain about, Obamacare. This is your warning. If your a Trump supporter, think about this for a few moments. Then think again!
I leave you with that......

Hillary Clinton Takes a U-Turn on the Trans-Pacific Partnership

   After presidential candidate and senator of Vermont Bernie Sanders opposed the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and gained votes as a result, Hillary Clinton decided to "change her mind" on the TPP as well and she did it right before the polls opened on Super Saturday. According to The International Buisness Times, Hillary Clinton said, "I did not work on TPP." For those who don't know or are not familiar with the TPP, it is a complex trade deal involving the United States, Japan, Malaysia, Vietnam, Singapore, Brunei, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Mexico, Chile and Peru. The deal is expected to grow economic ties between these nations, slashing tariffs (taxes on imports) and fostering trade to boost growth. Some of the reasons critics argue and disagree with the deal is because it can move jobs from the U.S to developing countries. The International Business Times stated, "Clinton publicly promoted the pact 45 separate times." Though, according to The International Business Times, Clinton said, "I advocated for a multinational trade agreement that would be the gold standard. But that was the responsibility of the United States Trade Representative." Even though she called the deal the gold standard, which is an intense comment to make in my view, she blames the U.S Trade Representative. Going back to an earlier quote, when she was Secratary of State and did not have to disagree with the TPP not knowing that she would be competing for the Democratic presidential nomination against a progressive socialist,  Clinton said, "With respect to the TPP, although the State Department does not have the lead on this, we work closely with the United States Trade Representative." So in one quote, she says it was the trade representative responsible but in the other quote, she says that she worked very closely with the trade representative. The article states, "The cables from 2009 and 2010, which were among a trove of documents disclosed by the website WikiLeaks, also show that the Clinton-run State Department advised the U.S Trade Representative's office on how to negotiate the deal with foreign government officials." So, Clinton said that she did not work on TPP but in this quote, it says that she closely advised on how to negotiate the deal. That means that she basically made the deal. If that's not enough evidence for you, According to CBS News, "A senior administration official told CBS News Correspondent Julianna Goldman that Clinton was one of the biggest backers of TPP." If your a Hillary Clinton supporter, do you really beleive that she had nothing to do with the TPP? If you still don't, Susan Rice, President Obama's National Security Advisor said, "She was integrally involved in all of the major initiatives of the of the first term of the administration. She was instrumental in implementing the rebalance in Asia, of which the Trans-Pacific Partnership is a part." This clearly means that she was strongly in favor of the agreement. To show you even more clearer that she was strongly in favor of the agreement, Clinton said, "The TPP will lower barriers, raise standards and drive long-term growth across the region." She went on to saying, "we are making progress toward finalizing a far-reaching new trade agreement called the Trans-Pacific Partnership." 

 
   Hillary Clinton supporters, understand what you are voting for. If you are voting for Clinton, don't be surprised if she goes into office and "changes her mind" again and supports the TPP because I promise you, that is exactly what is going to happen. Don't say I didn't warn you.

   I want to make it clear that I do not want this article to imply that I have something against Hillary Clinton nor do I want this article to imply that I am not supporting Hillary Clinton. I went to Hillary Clinton' rally on Super Tuesday and she is a very strong and bold individual and I have tremendous respect for. I admire her drive and passion towards her campaign and even more so towards helping the American people. I would also like to point out that I strongly appreciate the work the Clinton Administration has done and the work specific individuals tied to the Clinton Administration have done for the American people. Having said all of that, I am just giving my point of view on this specific issue. At this point, I support whoever the Democratic Nominee is, wether it is Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton.
