Note to Mark Zuckerberg, When You Are A Billionaire It Is Not “A Challenge” To Visit Every State in America, It Is However a Nice PR Stunt To Lay Some Groundwork For A Future Political Campaign, Either For Governor or President.
Mark Zuckerberg, “Priscilla and I are taking a road trip through the south this week as part of my challenge to visit every state in the US.”

Twitter Manifesto: Their Ultimate Power & Profit Potential Lies in Real Time Search, Nobody Has The Real Time Search Power of Twitter, They Need to Base the Entire Site Around Real Time Search & Live Events, Sports, Movie Premieres, Iphone Debuts, Breaking News, Etc.
In the future MikeFrancesa.com will go into greater detail on how Twitter can build one of the most powerful and profitable websites in the world but it all starts with real time search. Twitter has what nobody has and that includes Google, when news breaks, when you want the immediate reaction of people on the scene, either at a sporting event or a movie premiere or an Apple Iphone debut, the only place to visit is Twitter.
And yet Twitter makes the experience both tantalizing and frustrating, you find just enough information to get you engaged and going back to the site for future real time events but not enough information to make it a complete experience.
To begin with let’s take the example of a sporting event, specifically a Knicks game, more detailed, the Charles Oakley/James Dolan incident. When that incident occurred, you could not go to Google to get immediate reactions, even Youtube was late in getting the actual video of the incident, Twitter was the sole place to discover what happened and to find spectators who were actually sitting close to Charles Oakley.
But again Twitter makes it all a chore so that in the future they should enable this ability:
1. Upon visiting Twitter for a real time event, you can immediately search which Twitter users are actually at the event, which Twitter users are watching the event, which Twitter users are professional journalists covering the event, and which Twitter users are professional journalists watching the event from afar and commenting on it. And you offer this for any real time event, the debut of an Iphone; Twitter offers all of the Twitter users who just purchased the Iphone, all of the journalists covering the Iphone, all of the tech journalists in general, etc. etc.
Currently you have to wade through nonsensical Tweets to find people that are actually at the event and you need to craft your Twitter searches in such a way to find people who might actually be close to the action.
But that leaves us with another problem, how do you rely on those Twitter users at the event to be telling the truth, how do we know they are really there? Well a picture from the event would help and of course there will never be a way to be 100 percent certain but why in God’s name has Twitter not started a ranking system to rank the credibility of all Twitter users based on an algorithm that takes into account what they post, who links to their Tweets, and how often those Tweets turn out to be proven correct or legitimate.
We all know that Google ranks the importance and usefulness of websites based on a specific algorithm and we know that Twitter employs some of the most talented tech people in the world, a Twitter user ranking system could easily be done.
But of course all of this, real time search, making your website the place to be during real time events, is dependent upon your users tweeting as much information as possible, you need to encourage Tweets and you need to illustrate ways in which Tweets can help your small business or your brand or your personal website or your career or your just your impact on the current political zeitgeist.
So why is Twitter not ranking Tweets in general, the funniest Tweet of the day, the most informative, the most intelligent, the most helpful; maybe Twitter is doing this already but as an average user, MikeFrancesa.com can’t find it and retweets are not enough, Twitter needs to have a part of their site that looks like Google News which categorizes their tweets into subject matters, real time events, and specific quality of Tweets as mentioned above.
The possibilities of Twitter are endless and yet why are none of these things happening. Is it out of arrogance? Is it because Twitter is not speaking with average users and trying to learn what would make them use the site more? Do they have an actual tech talent deficit?
Finally Twitter could assist their users if say they want to start a Twitter neighborhood crime watch or a political protest group or quickly discuss whether or not a food or drug product is causing harmful side effects.
Again the potential is there to be realized but at the very least Twitter needs to make the site more accessible to those who want to follow real time events. And to defeat the trolls and nonsense Tweets and hate Tweets and spam Tweets, the user ranking system would totally end the negative atmosphere that drive some people away from the site. A typical user could set up Twitter so that they don’t see any Tweets from any user with a ranking lower than 30 percent.
Once again Twitter has what nobody has, real time search, there is your power, build your site around all of the uses of real time search and the profit/power of Twitter will be realized.

Not that Meryl Streep’s assessment of Donald Trump is wrong, Trump echoes the alt right in their Asshole like behavior, no they are not brave or politically incorrect or alpha males, they are A-hole D-Bags who if they really had it, they would not need to talk it but deep down they are weak in mind and in spirit but MikeFrancesa.com digresses.
Meryl Streep is correct, Donald Trump is an A-Hole Bully with an inferiority complex but the question holds, who has done more to tear down Respect in America, Donald Trump or the past 50 years of Hollywood or Hollywood once the studio system broke down?
We think Hollywood is the far greater influence in tearing down the virtues of Respect & Character in America.

The Liberal Media Scions Are Appalled That Russia Would Have The Temerity To Try To Influence an American Election, Of Course We Should Call Out The Russians and Covertly Retaliate But All Smart Countries Attempt To Influence Foreign Elections, Including the USA, Classic Example 1948 Italy, What Do They Teach In Journalism School These Days, For God Sakes All One Has To Do is Visit Wikipedia To See the Many Examples of America Influencing and Attempting to Choose the Winner of a Foreign Election.
But of course most of the low rent talking heads will continue to use the word “unprecedented” when describing Russian attempts to influence the 2016 American presidential election. Here is Wikipedia:
The 1948 general election was greatly influenced by the Cold War that was starting between the United States and the Soviet Union.
The CIA, by its own admission, gave $1 million to Italian “center parties” and was accused of publishing forged letters in order to discredit the leaders of the Italian Communist Party. The National Security Act of 1947, that made foreign covert operations possible, had been signed into law about six months earlier by the American President Harry S. Truman.
“We had bags of money that we delivered to selected politicians, to defray their political expenses, their campaign expenses, for posters, for pamphlets,” according to CIA operative F. Mark Wyatt. In order to influence the election, the US agencies undertook a campaign of writing ten million letters, made numerous short-wave radio broadcasts and funded the publishing of books and articles, all of which warned the Italians of what was believed to be the consequences of a communist victory. Time Magazine backed the campaign and featured the Christian Democrat leader and Prime Minister Alcide De Gasperi on its cover and in its lead story on 19 April 1948.
The Christian Democrats eventually won the 1948 election with 48% of the vote, and the FDP received 31%. The CIA’s practice of influencing the political situation was repeated in every Italian election for at least the next 24 years. A leftist coalition would not win a general election for the next 48 years, until 1996. That was partly because of Italians’ traditional bent for conservatism and, even more importantly, the Cold War, with the US closely watching Italy, in their determination to maintain a vital NATO presence amidst the Mediterranean and retain the Yalta-agreed status quo of western Europe.

Now That Donald Trump Has Won One Would Think Conspiracy Theorists Would Have To Find Real Work But Their Bullshit Machine Grinds On, Alex Jones (FEMA Camps) Anyway George Noory Host of Coast To Coast AM Should Be Fired For Lack Of Conspiratorial Quality Control On January 1, 2017 He Brings Back Numerologist/Prediction Expert/Nostradamus Wannabes Joseph Jacobs & John Hogue When on January 1, 2016 Hogue Predicted Hillary Clinton Would win The Presidency And Jacobs said The Election Would Be Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton.
Here is Noory and his snake oil idiots on January 1, 2016:
George Noory, “Old John Hogue who does Nostradamus work on our show, he believes it is going to be Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush.”
Joseph Jacobs, “Jeb Bush looks good, he looks much stronger believe it or not uh then does uh Trump.”
Remember when George Noory said he was offended and upset that Alex Jones led a mob of protesters and tried to incite them to attack Michelle Malkin when he crossed paths with her at a political event, Noory promised his audience he would bring it up with Alex Jones the next time he had him on as a guest and if he did not get a satisfactory explanation he would not continue to have Jones on his show, but of course Noory never brought it up, snake oil must continue to be sold and it is hilarious that Malkin is such a huge Trump fan considering that Trump went on the Alex Jones show and told him that his audience was going to be very happy with what the Trump administration would do once he became President.
Yes the conservative talk radio world is stoked to champion a man who says he does not need to read the daily intelligence brief because he is smart as if knowledge and intelligence are mutually exclusive. Why would Trump not want to apply his beautiful mind to one of our nation’s most important objectives, our national security, his superb analytical ability might piece together random bits of intelligence and figure out a possible terroristic plot, he can then direct our CIA/FBI to focus on his thesis and subsequently his genius could wind up saving American lives? Why, why would Trump deprive the American people from utilizing his stupendous brain?

Geraldo Rivera’s Worst Career Moment & Prime Example of his Blind Hypocrisy: Rivera Leads The Media’s Creation of Charles Manson & Then Decries and Wonders Why People Find Manson to Be Charismatic or Intriguing, Without The Media and the Post Trial Interviews, Charles Manson Would Be an Afterthought, Instead the Media Created an Arch Intelligent Svengali.
Here is Geraldo Rivera on The O’Reilly Factor on November 23, 2013:
Geraldo Rivera, “Why is Manson so charismatic to this new generation? I remember when Manson was the biggest selling t-shirt in this country. He has this sort of dark appeal to young people that is in its own way more disquieting or as disquieting as the attacks on the street.”
Yeah dope, I wonder why that is.
Without Geraldo Rivera and his Media cohorts, Charles Manson is a low rent dirtbag who led a small hippie cult of druggies and convinced them to commit murder in order to incite a race war. He would have been a tiny footnote in the long historical tract of 1960’s America but the media saw the paychecks, celebrity sells and if one orders the killing of a celebrity well the media can turn that person into an all powerful Bond villian. Geraldo defends himself by stating that he never paid Charles Manson a dime but he misses the point, with every ounce of media exposure you give Manson and his image more oxygen all while the interviewer advances his or her career and the networks increase their ratings.
And despite what Geraldo Rivera thinks, his interview was not tough, it was crap and not one interviewer ever was able to get Manson off of his talking points. People would respect Rivera more if he just admitted that he made a career off of garbage exploitation.
In 1988 Howard Rosenberg of the L.A. Times summed it up well:
In other words, TV is scaring us to death.
Enter TV bogeyman Geraldo Rivera, reliving that 1968 murderous rampage by the Manson gang.
“Its gruesomeness was a kick in the nation’s gut,” Rivera said on his talk show Monday, where he intercut numerous clips of his Manson interview with a studio discussion and his own bold revelations. “My diagnosis: He’s evil!”
Locked away for life in San Quentin (technically, he can be paroled, but won’t be), Manson has only one power these days: the power to frighten people. And he can’t even do that without a stage. Rivera delivered the stage–a stage built for two.
There they were on tape, Charlie and Geraldo, goblin to goblin, actor to actor, performing for the cameras, Charlie with a swastika on his forehead, Geraldo with his shirt sleeves rolled up in preparation for this nose-to-nose duel.
“There’s people who say you’re the devil!” Rivera charged.
“OK, I’ll play,” Manson replied. “I’ll be the devil.”
Later, they both crouched near the floor as Manson explained his hold on his followers. The two continued to argue.
“You’re a murderer and a dog, Charlie,” Rivera snarled. “A murderer and a dog,” Manson repeated. “You’re a mass murderer and a dog,” Rivera added. Nyeh, nyeh, nyeh-nyeh nyeh.
And much later, Rivera clearly could take no more. How dare this brutal, incoherent criminal Manson act like a brutal, incoherent criminal in front of Geraldo Rivera, who had come to San Quentin hoping that Manson would act like a brutal, incoherent criminal.
Geraldo to Charlie: “I get (angry), man! I can play, but I get (angry).”
About this time, you began wondering if the wrong man was locked up.
This entire episode was a vivid example of mutual back scratching, of using and being used. Manson was manipulating the camera and Rivera was manipulating Manson, and both knew what was going on and reveled in the process–the mutually beneficial partnership of crime biz and show biz.
Don’t shows like this “feed his ego?” one member of the audience wondered.
“After almost 20 years, why is society still obsessed with Charles Manson and the mass murders?” asked another.
For the same inexplicable reason that society is attracted to the very violence that it fears. Our fascination with evil–from Nazism to organized crime–is documented in the profit sheets of the publishing and entertainment industries and Rivera’s own specials.
At the same time, the public call for self-serving Manson retrospectives such as Rivera’s and the repulsive one on Fox’s “A Current Affair” Monday on KTTV Channel 11–featuring grisly, shadowy, slo-mo re-enactments of the Manson gang’s killings–has yet to be heard.
“He knows very well what he is doing, and he’s having a great time doing it,” sociologist Jack Levin said about Manson on Rivera’s show. So what possible good purpose can be served by giving someone like Manson a forum, by pleasing him? What lessons are to be learned that would justify giving him exposure?
The only lesson, unfortunately, is that some TV people will do anything for an audience.
“He’s so full of crap,” Geraldo said. In that regard, Manson was in good company.

Bill O’Reilly Equals The Shining Example of a Trump Cultist: Believes That Hillary Clinton Did Not Win the Popular Vote Because Her Nearly 3 Three Million Vote Lead Contains a Net 4.27 Million Votes From Progressive California Which Always Votes Democratic Thus It Should Be Invalidated But If We Use O’Reilly’s Stunted Logic, Invalidating an Entire State Because It Has Voted Democratic Since 1992 Then We Must Invalidate the Trump Always Republican/Never Democrat Since 1968/1980 States of Texas, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Alabama, Kansas, Utah & Many Others.
Bill O’Reilly is the sterling example of a Trump supporter who makes up his own news and own facts. The votes of California do not matter because they always vote Democratic, sure, why not, invalidate an entire state because they don’t vote for the Republican party but make sure you invalidate the large states that never vote for the Democratic party, be consistent in your idiotic thinking but Bill O’Reilly is a legend in his own mind and while his logic is diseased he begins on a complete false note that if you did invalidate California, suddenly Trump has a resounding popular vote victory.
False, that takes 4.27 million votes away from Clinton, thus giving Trump a 1.4 million popular vote lead which would give Trump a one percentage point popular vote lead, clearly not a landslide or decisive win as O’Reilly suggests and because we must follow O’Reilly’s diseased Trump cultist logic we must also invalidate Texas since they have voted Republican since 1980 and Oklahoma since they have voted Republican since 1968: Texas removes 800,000 net votes from Trump and Oklahoma removes 529,000 net votes from Trump, while we are at it we can add Utah’s 215,000 net Trump votes since they also have not voted Democratic since 1968 and now Clinton is once again up 100,000 popular votes.
Bill O’Reilly a man with a diseased mind, faulty logic, fake facts, purveyor of fake news, and allegedly the epitome of a phony Family Man, which makes him the perfect Trump apologist and cultist.
Just looking out for the folks:
Bill O’Reilly, “But the left is desperately searching for some reason to explain why Secretary Clinton and the Democratic Party lost so badly.
Yes, I know the popular vote went to Mrs. Clinton, but it was all California and every fair-minded person knows that.
Take that progressive state out of the mix and it was a decisive win for trump in almost every other way.”
Because you don’t vote the way Bill O’Reilly deems you should or at least have established a consistent pattern of voting against the way O’Reilly thinks you should, your votes should be entirely invalidated, the entire state of California should not be factored into Hillary Clinton’s popular vote lead, makes zero logical sense but O’Reilly is not scared to spew it out to the folks.
And now here is the reality for those who still have common sense:
Mrs. Clinton’s big win in California was, on paper, potentially enough to be “responsible” for the electoral-popular vote split in the same way that the Deep South drove Mr. Cleveland’s popular vote win in 1888.
But unlike the situation in 1888, Mrs. Clinton’s huge victory in California (along with the District of Columbia and Hawaii, where Mrs. Clinton won by a higher percentage than she did in California) was almost entirely canceled out by Mr. Trump’s dominance of his base states — which we’ll call Appalachafornia — from West Virginia to Wyoming. (“Appalachafornia” consists of West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, Alabama, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, North Dakota and South Dakota.)
Mrs. Clinton led in the rest of the country by the same two-point margin after excluding Appalachafornia and California — and yet she still loses the Electoral College vote by about the same margin.

Mitt Romney The Ultimate Empty Suit Changes From Donald Trump Is The Worst Person In The World, “Dishonesty is Trump’s hallmark”, To a Few Months Later, “I have very high hopes, new administration, lead the nation, greater strength/peace/prosperity.” Therein Lies Why Donald Trump Was Elected: Empty Suits Equals Empty Rhetoric. Problem?
The problem is Donald Trump is going to play his voters and the American people the same way he played Mitt Romney, like the ultimate mark/chump/sucker, because a Con Man always takes down his prey, it’s what they do.
Here is Mitt Romney in March of 2016:
Mitt Romney, “Let me put it plainly, if we Republicans choose Donald Trump as our nominee, the prospects for a safe and prosperous future are greatly diminished.”
And now Mitt Romney in December of 2016:
Mitt Romney, “I have very high hopes that the new administration will lead the nation to greater strength, prosperity and peace.”
And with that our hopes of a system of checks and balances go down considerably as the House and Senate are full of Romney like Empty Suits. You never should have taken the meeting Mitt, you got played ole Mittie-Boy. You should have remembered your old statement, “Dishonesty is Trump’s hallmark.”
