NiC 50: The Most Influential

Make no mistake; selecting the most influential Americans who are 50+ wasn’t the easiest course of action to launch NiC with. But, as we looked over the landscape we realized that very few voices—very, very few voices—seemed to notice, let alone care, about arguably the most important and growing population in our country: Us.

Though it has almost become de rigueur for intelligent mature adults to complain about why ratings-obsessed television executives and movie studio honchos are so locked in on the 18-34 set and all but ignore the massive 50+ audience—after all, don’t we have all the spending money?—we decided to try a different tact in shaking up the public discourse: We created NiC, a smart, sexy, informative, relevant destination where you, me and a heck of a lot of people just like us will determine what’s important to us in the zeitgeist, though 18-34 year olds are certainly welcome.

Determining any list is always fraught with numerous conflicting obstacles—ratio of men to women, diversity, geographic concentration—but when you add our relentless determination to create the single-best, most-discussed and definitive ranked list of influential people 50+ in the US, well, let’s just say the conversations around the NiC offices were rather spirited. And, yes, celebrities, politicians, sports figures and media personalities do make up the lion’s share of the 50 because when a ranking is solely based on influence—what NiC considers real power—having a bold-faced name is a prerequisite. It just is.

So we’ve come up with 25 men and 25 women (and just a few bubblin’ under) who by their sheer star power or their convention-defying renegade approach to life, have made—and continue to make—a significant impression on our collective psyche. And with that, NiC announces that the undeniable force for positivity otherwise known as Oprah Winfrey resoundingly takes the top spot on our inaugural list of most influential Americans 50+. I mean, how could she not? The very idea that an African-American woman born in 1950s Mississippi could unquestionably sit at No.1 on such an impossibly prestigious list truly boggles the mind in delicious ways. That same exciting incredulity will help fuel NiC as we move forward with much more groundbreaking (and unconventional) stories for you to digest and discuss.

I so look forward to our own spirited conversations about the 50 extraordinary Americans you’re about to read about. Agree with the names on this list or not, one thing is certain, we’ll be talking about them. And, well, isn’t that the point?

  1. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed. They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace. It will be a false peace for a period of time. You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things. They have their plans set in place. It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.
