    Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg says that if he runs for president, he’ll pay for it himself, defending candidates who use personal riches to bankroll campaigns. Bloomberg’s comments to reporters in Texas on Friday follow a jab from another top 2020 contender. Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren recently decried the Democratic presidential nomination becoming “one more plaything that billionaires can buy.”

    Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Friday that his campaign will be self-funded if he runs for president in 2020. "I ran three times. I used only my own money so I didn't have to ask anybody what they wanted in return for a contribution,"Bloomberg told reporters in Texas, according to Chron. "And, if I ran again, I would do the same thing. I think not having to adjust what you say and what you work on based on who financed your campaign is one of the things that the public really likes." "I understand not everybody can...
  • (Flashback)Bloomberg May Run for President as a Democrat. Some of His Views May Cause Him Trouble.

    NY Times ^ | Sept. 17, 2018 | Alexander Burns and Sydney Ember
    There is considerable skepticism among Democratic leaders, and even some of Mr. Bloomberg’s close allies, that he will actually pursue the presidency, because he has entertained the idea fruitlessly several times before, and shown little appetite for the rough-and-tumble tactics of traditional partisan politics. A campaign would require him to yield his imperial stature as a donor and philanthropist, and enter a tumultuous political and cultural climate that could make him a highly incongruous candidate for the Democratic nomination. Though he has received a hero’s welcome from Democrats for his role in the midterms, Mr. Bloomberg is plainly an uncomfortable...

    It’s a new year, and a new Twitter post from actor James Woods is getting attention for taking decisive aim at the establishment media. His powerful New Year’s Eve tweet was also a twofer, hitting at media mogul and potential 2020 candidate Michael Bloomberg. And the picture said it all — Bloomberg alighting from a private jet, an experience few Americans will ever have, but one that’s routine for the billionaire class. Woods’ point about Bloomberg’s hypocrisy is valid. Virtually every moment during the businessman and former New York City mayor’s appearance on “Meet the Press” on Sunday was spent...

    Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is prepared to spent upwards of $100 million should he mount a 2020 bid for the White House, according to CNBC. Howard Wolfson, the billionaire business magnate's top political advisor, told the news outlet that Bloomberg spent more than $100 million in his last campaign for New York City mayor in 2009. "Last time I looked, NYC is a fraction of the size of the country as a whole," Wolfson said in an email to the outlet. ADVERTISEMENT Wolfson added that Bloomberg would spend "whatever is required" on his own campaign if he...

    Donald Trump is the richest president in U.S. history – but as he gears up for a re-election campaign, the real estate magnate could end up facing off against someone even wealthier. The budding 2020 field of potential challengers includes no fewer than four fellow billionaires. The wealthiest of the pack, by far, is former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. The media mogul and gun control advocate’s net worth is estimated at nearly $52 billion, according to the latest Forbes 400 Richest Americans list.

    The Manhattan district attorney’s office and New York state police are expected to arrest several senior executives in former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s finance company on fraud charges Tuesday, The New York Times reported. The executives are expected to be a part of a larger arrest of roughly a dozen senior executives spanning several companies involved in New York real estate and development.

    Democrat Stacey Abrams would not say Tuesday whether she would support rounding up AR-15 firearms from Georgians if elected governor. Conservative co-host of "The View" Meghan McCain read out a list of Abrams' gun control bona fides, including her "F" rating from the National Rifle Association and endorsements from the group Everytown for Gun Safety and gun control activist Michael Bloomberg. "Do you, like Everytown, support banning the AR-15?" McCain asked. Abrams replied she was not "anti-gun," talking about her enjoyment of trap shooting and target shooting, but she also touted her support of background checks, three-day waiting periods, and...

    A planned Student Gun Violence Summit held in Washington, D.C. over the weekend has generated a proposal geared towards extensive gun control ideas. The summit was designed to merge existing plans to reduce gun violence and merge them into a single “Students’ Bill of Rights,” after a weekend conference. The group, a 501(c)(4) tax-exempt social welfare organization, was formed by Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School teacher Melissa Falkowski, along with Jami Amo, a survivor of the Columbine shooting; and Abbey Clements, a teacher from Sandy Hook Elementary School. The summit was sponsored with the assistance of several national gun control...

There's no truth to this." "I was involved in our response to this story from the beginning," Cook said according to Buzzfeed.

    With two weeks to go until the midterms, Republicans are virtually guaranteed to win the Senate. As of today, North Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Arizona, and Missouri appear safe. Just today, the third consecutive poll showing Dean Heller up in Nevada came out (Emerson) and he has expanded his lead now to seven. This would mean that as of today, the GOP would gain a net of two seats in the Senate. Races still supposedly up in the air are Montana, Indiana, West Virginia, Florida, Minnesota, New Jersey, and Ohio. Races where the Democrat has a lead outside the margin of...

    Media personalities have been bending over backward to find a way to square the claims made by Bloomberg in its "China Hack" story with a series of strongly worded denials from Amazon and Apple insisting that the report was "wrong and misinformed." However, there is solid evidence that Bloomberg has previously published a series of false claims before, either from a lack of research coupled with bad perspective, or possibly to simply craft a dramatic narrative. Truth versus imagination of possibility The tantalizing idea —as if ripped from the pages of a spy novel —that Chinese hackers had implanted chips...
