    Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is expected to spend at least $80 million in the 2018 midterm elections supporting Democratic candidates as part of his larger goal of flipping 23 Republican-held seats in the House, to put Democrats back in power, the New York Times reported Wednesday. Sources close to Bloomberg tell CBS News that they expect his funding could be even higher than $80 million by the end of the midterm spending season. Bloomberg has been an outspoken voice for center-left politics, and his candidate funding, which the New York Times first reported, could serve Democrats well...

    Michael R. Bloomberg, the billionaire former mayor of New York City, has decided to throw his political clout and personal fortune behind the Democratic campaign to take control of the House of Representatives this year, directing aides to spend tens of millions of dollars in an effort to expel Republicans from power. Mr. Bloomberg — a political independent who has championed left-of-center policies on gun control, immigration and the environment — has approved a plan to pour at least $80 million into the 2018 election, with the bulk of that money going to support Democratic congressional candidates, advisers to Mr....

    A political action committee backing former state Sen. Michael Johnston of Denver for the Democratic nod for governor has received another $1 million dollars from Michael Bloomberg, bringing the wealthy former New York mayor’s total donations to the committee to $2 million. ... The $1 million contribution was the largest that any campaign committee received in the most recent reporting period from May 31 to June 13, according to the secretary of state’s office’s TRACER campaign finance system. Second on the list: another $750,000 from fellow Democrat U.S. Rep. Jared Polis of Boulder to his gubernatorial campaign, bringing his total...

    Americans For Tax Reform ^ | May 22nd, 2018 | Americans For Tax Reform
    Nanny-state-imposing left-wing billionaire Michael Bloomberg is now on video admitting how much he likes to raise taxes on poor people, calling such tax hikes a “good thing.” For years, Bloomberg has personally funded and promoted all sorts of regressive taxes and regulations in an attempt to push people around. He uses the coercive power of the government to force people to live their lives as he sees fit. So here is Bloomberg on stage with another global mandarin, Christine Lagarde of the International Monetary Fund. He refers to low income individuals as “those people” and then takes a shot at...

    Americans are facing an "epidemic of dishonesty" in Washington that's more dangerous than terrorism or communism. That's according to former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who warned in a commencement speech on Saturday at Texas' Rice University that "an endless barrage of lies" and a trend toward "alternate realities" in national politics pose a dire threat to U.S. democracy.

    Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has vowed to write a $4.5 million check to the United Nations body that oversees climate change negotiations to make up the shortfall in the agency's budget caused by U.S. funding cuts. President Donald Trump last year formally announced the U.S. would pull out of the Paris climate accord deal, stating that it was not fair. Congress also cut funding for the Bonn, Germany-based UNFCCC from $7.5 million in previous years to $3 million this year. "America made a commitment and as an American if the government's not going to do it we...

    Fresno Bee ^ | 05/09/18 | Bryant-Jon Anteola
    Gasoline prices in Fresno already increased beyond $4 per gallon this week at some places in town. And gas prices are projected to rise even more going into the summer in the aftermath of President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal. A year ago, the national average for was $2.34 for a gallon of gas, according to a CNN Money report. These days, that national average has jumped to $2.81 per gallon. Those in Fresno can probably add a dollar on top of the national price, with high state taxes and stringent standards for reformulating...

    As California's Summer Gas Is Approaching $4.00/gal what can we expect from President Trump and changes to onerous EPA regulations? Part of gasoline’s price increase is largely seasonal, as refiners tend to process less crude oil into fuel during maintenance and are starting to transition to summer-grade gasoline, which is more expensive to make. According to analysts prices will likely climb further as the weather warms and driving picks up. We need to get gas prices under control in order to MAGA.

    President of the White House Correspondents' Association Margaret Talev defends the decision to have Michelle Wolf as the comedian at the dinner, saying "she had a message to deliver and she did." Talev also said she hoped "those 15 minutes" do not "define four hours of what was a wonderful and unifying night." Wolf's set has been criticized by both CNN and FOX News. "I think she brought to the night what she thought was important to say, and her goal may not have been press unity and everyone rallying around to support journalism," Talev also said.

    Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said President Donald Trump was a real estate developer, and therefore “not really a business person.” BRENNAN: At the DNC in 2016, you called Donald Trump a “risky, reckless and radical choice” and the country you said couldn’t afford to make that mistake. BLOOMBERG: Did I say that? BRENNAN: It was a memorable quote. Has he done anything to make you reconsider that? Do you think he’s doing a good job? BLOOMBERG: I think he, it’s, I would give him an incomplete grade. Some of the things that...

    Rolling Stone magazine crows about what is “different” about this iteration of the anti-Second Amendment movement. It isn't because students are involved. That has been tried before. What is different this time is those anti-Second Amendment billionaires built up a network across the nation. A network of paid activists that was ready to spring into action when the “right” emotional moment presented itself. From rollingstone.com: Everyone wants to know why Parkland was different. And the reason, says Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action, is how quickly the community coalesced around a clear purpose: “Within hours of the shooting. We...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords. (Photo: Giffords)National gun control organizations still use the former presidential candidate and secretary of state to garner attention for events and fundraisers. Hillary Clinton, who received the quick public endorsement from both Everytown and Giffords during her failed 2016 bid for the White House, still weighs in on gun politics and is feted by the groups. This week, the umbrella organization backed by former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg emailed invitations to attend some 800 Everytown-sponsored March for Our Lives gun control events signed by Clinton. “I have...

    The New York Times ^ | November 20, 2005 | Nicholas Confessore
    Through four straight mayoral contests, the Republican line on New York City election ballots has yielded gold: four straight wins for G.O.P. candidates in a city where declared Democrats make up the overwhelming majority of voters. Those wins have not, however, yielded an obvious successor to Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, whose name -- because of term limits -- will not be on the ballot come November 2009. Indeed, while the city's political elite has long since begun speculating about likely Democratic candidates for 2009, the roster of presumptive Republican aspirants is rather thin. "I couldn't project who could follow his...

    At the risk of being called cold or harsh, let me begin by saying every American has a right to his/her opinion on just about any issue. Including guns. Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let me add this: the people playing partisan politics on the graves of the 17 innocent dead people from Douglas High School are despicable. I don’t care what age they are. Over the last couple of weeks, a variety of conservative voices have gotten in trouble for insinuating that the anti-gun protesters coming out of Douglas High School seem far too practiced...

    “Can you believe these kids?” It’s been a recurring theme of the coverage of the Parkland school shooting: the remarkable effectiveness of the high school students who created a gun control organization in the wake of the massacre. In seemingly no time, the magical kids had organized events ranging from a national march to a mass school walkout, and they’d brought in a million dollars in donations from Oprah Winfrey and George Clooney. The Miami Herald credited their success to the school’s stellar debate program. The Wall Street Journal said it was because they were born online, and organizing was...

    Meet the puppeteers behind the puppets. Since then, major players and organizations — including Everytown, Giffords, Move On, Planned Parenthood, and the Women’s March LA — told BuzzFeed News they are helping the students with logistics, strategy, and planning for next month’s March for Our Lives rally and beyond. Much of the specific resources the groups are providing to the Parkland students remains unclear — as is the full list of supporting organizations — but there are broad outlines.

    In an hour-long meeting with Democrats and Republicans filled with newsworthy comments on gun control Wednesday, President Trump parted ways with members of his own party and accused them more than once of being "petrified" of the National Rifle Association. "They have great power over you people," the president said to his fellow Republicans. "They have less power over me." "Some of you are petrified of the NRA," he added. "You can't be petrified." **** The president -- who told his supporters Hillary Clinton wanted to take their guns away on the campaign trail -- suggested taking guns "early" from...
