    The Washington Post's The Fix ^ | May 26, 2015 | Philip Bump
    Unless you stayed in a hotel last night, you may have missed Michael Wolff's column in USA Today suggesting that only one candidate has the profile and pedigree to replace Hillary Clinton as the Democratic nominee. That candidate? Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, of course. Wolff's argument boils down to two things. First, Bloomberg is rich, and you have to be rich to run for office. Second, Clinton and the Republicans are engaged in a "race from the center," leaving an opportunity for the sort of centrism that Bloomberg theoretically represents. After all, the millennials love centrism, right?...

    The Politico ^ | May 11, 2015 | Dylan Byers
    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Bloomberg Television's "With All Due Respect," hosted by Game Change co-authors Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, is probably the object of more ridicule from Beltway and Manhattan insiders than any other news show on television. That's not an opinion, it's a fact. The vast majority of the Gang of 500, a term coined by Halperin many moons ago, thinks the show is really bad. Which is a problem, because the Gang of 500 is Halperin and Heilemann's target audience. The rest of America doesn't watch the show. Although Ruben Navarette, a San Diego-based columnist, did happen upon Halperin's interview with...

    Pobody's Nerfect. On Monday afternoon, Bloomberg Politics editor and MSNBC senior burrito correspondent Mark Halperin apologized for an interview two weeks ago in which he ham-handedly quizzed Senator and 2016 presidential hopeful Ted Cruz (R-TX) on his Cuban heritage. In the interview Halperin questioned Cruz on his Hispanic appeal, even his consumption of Cuban dishes, and offered to let Cruz welcome Democratic challenger Bernie Sanders to the race en Español. The interview flew under the radar until it was torn to shreds by San Jose Mercury-News columnist Ruben Navarrette this weekend. “As a Hispanic, I felt like I was watching...

    Mark Halperin of Bloomberg interviewed Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, a candidate for president of the United States, recently and endeavored to find out how authentically Cuban he is. This line of questioning has not, so far as is known, been directed at any other presidential candidate. Barack Obama’s blackness has not been called into question, nor has Hillary Clinton’s womanhood. Ruben Navarrette, writing on Saturday for the San Jose Mercury News, was appalled, to say the least. Halperin asked Cruz what kind of Cuban food he liked, if he listened to Cuban music and was invited to address Bernie Sanders...

    Two years after the Newton, Connecticut, school massacre, Americans are coming to appreciate their gun rights more than ever. And despite the billions of dollars spent to convince people otherwise, the idea of more gun control is anathema to most Americans. Even women and black Americans are less likely to see guns as a safety risk and more likely to view them as protection against crime, according to a Pew Research Center poll. And for the first time in 25 years, more Americans say that protecting gun rights is more important than controlling gun ownership, 52 percent to 46...

To be precise, Bloomberg cited Bush and Hillary Clinton as the only truly “worthy” candidates, in his view. According to The New York Times, Bloomberg was attending a party in his honor after receiving an honorary knighthood from from Queen Elizabeth II. During the party, at which Bloomberg said he had “always admired the sophistication and fortitude of the British people,” the former mayor also singled out Bush and Clinton as the only two candidates for him.

    Who is the last great hope for Republicans in 2016 as they seek to maintain control of the Senate… and possibly the White House? One surprising answer is coming out of the annual convention of the NRA, and his name is Michael Bloomberg. The well monied former New York mayor and head honcho of Everytown for Gun Safety is holding his own event in Tennessee to focus attention on politicians who aren’t willing to sign on to ever increasing restrictions of the rights of gun owners. And it’s got some Democrats worried with good reason. “Every time a Democrat starts...

    Wayne LaPierre, the National Rifle Association's executive vice president and perhaps the gun lobby's most visible figure, has a penchant for invoking fear and paranoia in order to convince people that gun ownership is key to physical safety—despite an increasing number of studies that prove the very opposite. Ahead of the NRA's annual convention this weekend, Everytown, the gun-safety coalition backed by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, has released a video to demonstrate just how ridiculous LaPierre's signature fear-mongering tends to get. The video, which features kids adorably rattling off a handful of the NRA executive's quotes, is...

From television and newspaper ads, to blanketing communities with flyers, to bringing in people from out of state to testify, no effort seems too great. Then again, he is worth of over $36 billion.

And he has already earned a reputation for fabricating numbers, with even liberal-leaning PolitiFact slamming Bloomberg for exaggerating the number of school...

He also touted vocational education and, of course, his favorite topic, gun grabbing. The latter point was glossed over by the Times but deserves a hard look.

If the signatures are verified, the measure will be presented to the Legislature. If lawmakers don’t pass the measure, it would go on the 2016 election ballot for voters to decide. The initiative says a person cannot sell a gun to another individual without a background check. It would impact private sales, including those conducted online and at gun shows. There are some exceptions, such as the transfer of a gun...

    Michael Bloomberg, in addition to having been Mayor of New York City and currently being a wealthy elitist Leftist, has ongoing ties to the Islamic world and Qatar. In fact, many of his regulatory moves and his philanthropy efforts are connected to one degree or another with Qatar and Islamic nations, causes and endeavors. Qatar, the reader should be reminded, is the host country of the Muslim Brotherhood and is the primary supporter of the Arab Spring, including the genocidal Islamic State. Common Core is a huge, Progressive educational implementation in New York City which benefits Microsoft and a host...

    This week the AFL-CIO threw its considerable weight behind Democrat-turned-independent Greg Orman in his bid for U.S. Senate in Kansas. This came on the heels of a debate that was all about defining who Greg Orman really is: ... The AFL-CIO won't run TV ads for Orman, spokesman Jeff Hauser said, but his campaign will now be incorporated into the union's extensive ground game there. The AFL-CIO had previously endorsed Kansas's Democratic Party's gubernatorial nominee, Paul Davis, who is locked into one of the country's most competitive gubernatorial contests with incumbent Republican Gov. Sam Brownback. During Wednesday's debate, incumbent Sen....

    Libertarians were outraged by New York City Mayor Bloomberg’s “Big Gulp” ban (which a state court ultimately struck down). They slammed it as a “Nanny State” measure. But it was current Centers for Disease Control head Tom Frieden who was actually behind the ban.

    A high-tech computer system that captures images of “every mail piece that is processed” by the United State Postal Service was critical in helping federal agents track the Texas woman arrested today for allegedly sending ricin-tainted letters to President Barack Obama and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. In a U.S. District Court complaint filed today against Shannon Guess Richardson, an FBI agent details how investigators traced the ricin letters back to New Boston, Texas, where the 35-year-old Richardson (seen below) lives with her husband.
  • Michael Bloomberg's anti-gun propaganda

    Fox News ^ | October 6, 2014 | John R. Lott Jr.
    When former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s gun control groups release a report, they consistently garner massive, uncritical news coverage. Alas. With the huge number of factual mistakes in these reports, you would think that reporters would have grown wary of pushing their propaganda. For example, Bloomberg’s Everytown, Mothers Demand Action, and Mayors Against Illegal guns have been caught padding the number of school shootings. While Everytown claimed 74 school shootings occurred between the Newtown, Connecticut shooting in December 2012 and June 2014, Politifact, which rated Everytown’s claim as “mostly false,” put the number of “incidents such as Sandy...

  • How Bloomberg's Million-Dollar Desire For Gun Control Is Backfiring

    Forbes ^ | September 25, 2014 | Frank Miniter
    With the midterms just over a month away New York City’s former mayor Michael Bloomberg is spending at least $50 million to make his gun-control agenda part of this election. His gun-control group Everytown for Gun Safety has endorsed more than 100 federal and state candidates. They are also running television commercials, holding events and pushing their studies into the newsrooms of a mostly favorable press.
  • NRA outgunned? Gun control backers put millions behind background check measure

    When it comes to campaign spending on the right to bear arms, the National Rifle Association is almost never outgunned. But in Washington state, where voters soon will decide on one of the most restrictive background check laws in the country, the NRA is up against some of the deepest pockets in the world. And the NRA is getting outspent more than 7-1. “This is a terrible ballot initiative that was dreamed up by people who don’t even live in Washington,” NRA spokeswoman Catherine Mortensen said, “and it’s being financed by Michael Bloomberg of New York and his billionaire pals.”
  • Bloomberg: Colorado Gun Recall Towns So Rural, They Don’t Have Roads

    In what may come as a surprise to residents of Colorado Springs and Pueblo, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg doesn’t think those cities have roads. Bloomberg told Rolling Stone that he was “sorry” about the recalls of two state senators last year over the Democratic state legislature’s gun-control. “Colorado Springs is the second largest city in Colorado, Mr. Mayor,” said Herpin. “and not only do we have plenty of roads, but we are also home to the United States Air Force Academy, the U.S. Olympic Training Center and Committee Headquarters (which moved here from New York City), major...

  • Bloomberg/MDA and Target again?

    09/07/2014 4:23:28 PM PDT · by matt04 · 10 replies
    We all know Target caved to MDA and requested people not bring guns, which MDA took as a outright ban. According to some FB Posts and Tweets I saw recently it seems MDA or their members have realized that nothing has changed policy wise. I can't find anything official form MDA on a new campaign, but is seems like some of their members might have realized they were lied to and are not happy.
