Uber Is Seeking A $91 Billion IPO. The Long Term Bullish Case for Uber Shares

Wes Messamore

Uber Technologies Inc. announced Friday it will be seeking an initial public offering with a valuation of $80 – 91 billion. That figure is a revision from earlier expectations that would have valued the 21st century taxi company in excess of $100 billion at the time of the IPO.

The Fight Against The Rigged Presidential Debates Continues

By: Shawn Griffiths and Wes Messamore
Independent Voter News

US voters have overwhelmingly said they want a third candidate in presidential debates. As we look ahead to 2020, it seems the bipartisan Commission on Presidential Debates will once again deny them the opportunity.

IVN contributor Wes Messamore and I go into the history of the debate commission, which has made it all but impossible for candidates outside the Republican and Democratic Parties to appear on the public stage — all in the self-serving interest of protecting the major party nominees.
