  • Bloomberg’s ‘mercenaries’: Billionaire Dem funding network of climate lawyers inside state AG offices

    A program funded by 2020 presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg is paying the salaries of lawyers who are farmed out to liberal state attorney general offices to pursue climate-based litigation -- a compact critics say amounts to Bloomberg buying state law enforcement employees to advance his preferred political agenda. The arrangement, which currently pays the salaries of Special Assistant Attorneys General (SAAGs) in 10 Democratic AG offices, is drawing new scrutiny now that Bloomberg is running for president. The New York University School of Law's State Energy & Environmental Impact Center, which was started in 2017 with $5.6 million from Bloomberg's...

    Opinion: The Immorality of Democrat Thought We are fast approaching a tipping point in these United States of America. It seems as though an increasing percentage of the electorate believes that the purpose of the sovereign franchise is to vote themselves an ever-expanding portion of the public treasury. There seems to be this idea that just because one person has a need, perhaps a really significant, life or death need, that it is the business of government to force other citizens to respond to that need with their own labor or property.Part of this thought process comes from a false...

    Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) are running neck-and-neck for the top spot in Virginia’s upcoming Democratic presidential primary, according to a Monmouth University survey released early Tuesday. The poll shows Bloomberg and Sanders tied in the Old Dominion at 22 percent, followed by former Vice President Joe Biden at 18 percent. Only one other candidate, former South Bend, Ind,. Mayor Pete Buttigieg, registered double-digit support in the commonwealth at 11 percent
  • Bloomberg’s Business Nanny. The Sustainability Accounting board is a stalking horse for progressive politics.

    Wall Street Journal ^ | February 17, 2020 | WSJ Editorial Board
    BlackRock CEO Larry Fink recently made a splash by threatening to vote against corporate managers who don’t disclose an array of non-financial information as directed by the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board. But what is SASB, and where is this all going? Michael Bloomberg founded SASB in 2011 as a shadow regulator for his policy agenda. SASB claims to be modelled on the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB), a nonprofit with the imprimatur of the Securities and Exchange Commission that regulates how corporations account for and disclose financial information. SASB’s nine-member standards board issues guidelines for what kinds of sustainability information...

    Mike Bloomberg’s campaign on Monday launched a new ad ripping the so-called “Bernie Bros” for using online bullying tactics against anyone who opposes Sen. Bernie Sanders. “We need to unite to defeat Trump in November. This type of ‘energy’ is not going to get us there,” Bloomberg writes in a tweet along with the 53-second clip. The video contains numerous tweets, including one of a Photoshopped meme of Sanders pointing a handgun with the words “I am no longer asking.” “##Bernie or Bust now it’s #Bernie or Else,” the caption also read. Images of threatening text and other messages then...

    The American Prospect ^ | 2/17/20 | David Dayen
    I have been on the record as saying that Michael Bloomberg will never become the president of the United States. The line I wrote in 2016 holds up: “An anti-teachers’-union, anti-gun, pro-nanny state, pro-Wall Street, pro-stop-and- frisk, pro-inequality, pro-immigration, pro-surveillance, pro-Iraq War neoconservative is almost surgically designed to repel practically every American voter on some level.” For that reason alone, the flirtation with making this guy the Democratic nominee should cause serious alarm to anyone who wants to defeat Donald Trump. Plus, Bloomberg has vowed to spend his money until November no matter who is the nominee, instantly undercutting the...

    In casting his singular vote to impeach and remove Donald Trump from office, Mitt Romney made history. Now it’s time for him to take a step further. For the good of the country, Senator Romney should run for president as an independent. With the democratic-socialist Bernie Sanders now the Democratic frontrunner and the political arsonist Donald Trump as the Republican incumbent, there is a yawning chasm that has never before existed in American politics. By retreating to their poles, our two major parties have left tens of millions of independents and moderate Democrats and Republicans unrepresented.
  • 1990 Bloomberg L.P. Employees Created A Book Of His Offensive Quotes (Embedded)

    Warning: Strong Language On February 14th, 1990 for Michael Bloomberg’s 48th birthday, staffers at Bloomberg L.P celebrated their boss’ most famous offensive quips and anecdotes by creating a pamphlet and presenting him with a leather-bound copy. Some of the quotes are anti-female, anti-faith, and someone who looks down upon people who aren’t like him. Called The Portable Bloomberg: The Wit and Wisdom of Michael Bloomberg, it was edited by Bloomberg L.P.’s chief marketing officer Elisabeth DeMarse. Some of the tidbits in the pamphlet include: The only liberal I trust is a rich old liberal. Why? Because they’re old enough to...

    Only in the weird world of ‘woke’ would Michael Bloomberg come under such intense fire for arguably his most significant accomplishment while serving as the Republican mayor of New York City - managing to keep the densely populated city’s crime rate in check. Well, it’s not so much the accomplishment itself that’s causing quite the stir, but rather the, er, less than ‘woke’ tactics he used to get the job done. Political correctness being what it is, of course, the billionaire businessman had to apologize and back off the whole stop-and-frisk business early in his campaign. It was a ‘mistake’...

    Well, this should make for some good talking points against Sen. Bernie Sanders’ agenda to transform America into a socialist utopia. The Vermont senator is running on one of the most radical agendas in recent memory. It’s decidedly left-wing. Its supporters are decidedly left-wing. The energy that is has channeled has forced the Democratic Party to lurch to the left, much to the annoyance of the establishment. You see that with the Democratic National Committee pretty much changing the rules so that former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg can be on stage. Sanders supporters will only see this as yet...

    Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) was asked, point-blank, what she thought of a report in The Washington Post that accuses former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg of "making crass remarks, objectifying women and creating a sexist culture in the workplace." Although Bloomberg has denied the allegations, Klobuchar said he needs to stop hiding behind massive ad buys and sit down on a TV show and answer questions.

    All day, I’ve been waiting for someone to debunk the claim on Drudge Report that Mike Bloomberg is considering Hillary Clinton as his running mate. All day, I’ve been disappointed. I’ve watched my favorite conspiracy theory sites. I’ve watched the usual suspects among Bernie Bro journalists, MAGA-hat-wearing bloggers, and DNC shills on Twitter. Nothing. Nobody’s talking about the sham of this news report. It seems that everyone took the bait for one reason and one reason only: It was broken by Matt Drudge. For over two decades, he’s dropped several scoops on his homepage regarding scandals that usually turned out...

    The veteran ABC news anchor on Friday endorsed the billionaire media mogul’s run for president, telling CNN’s Anderson Cooper he believed Bloomberg was the “best-suited” Democratic candidate to take on Donald Trump in November. But times had changed and he now felt compelled to act because “we are in the grip” of a “sick, ignorant man,” Donaldson explained. “He’s mean, he’s corrupt and if we don’t get this right, we may lose the things that have made this country the best place to live in the world and that shining city on the hill that Ronald Reagan used to talk...

    Michael Bloomberg is channeling some of his $61.8 billion net worth into a new campaign strategy: memes. The Democratic 2020 hopeful unleashed a flood of posts onto Instagram Wednesday night, partnering with some of the most-followed accounts for a series of bizarre memes. The posts follow a similar theme, all pretending to be depicting direct messages from Bloomberg himself to the individual accounts. Most of the posts find him taking the persona of an out-of-touch old guy, trying to reach out to a younger audience in a tongue-in-cheek fashion and go viral. In one, posted by @F–kJerry to its 15...

    "Every day I'd say, 'what did you do.' And she'd say 'well, I played Scrabble today.' And I said, 'who'd you play with.' 'The housekeeper.' 'And did you win.' 'Yes, of course.' And I said, 'mother, the housekeeper works for us. They're throwing the game to you.' 'That's an outrage,' and she finished by saying, 'if you learn to play Scrabble you'd learn how to spell.' I said, 'mother, at my age I'm never going to learn how to spell.'" Maybe Bloomberg is trying to relate to ordinary people by claiming that he doesn't know how to spell. That would...
  • Bloomberg Adviser Gets Short With NYT Reporter About Candidate’s Height Bloomberg has history of telling tall tales about his height

    A Michael Bloomberg adviser was cut down to size by a New York Times reporter Thursday after trying to claim the Democratic presidential candidate was not self-conscious about his height. Times White House correspondent Maggie Haberman disputed one reporter's claim that the Bloomberg campaign was secretly happy about President Donald Trump calling the former New York City mayor a "5'4″ mass of dead energy." "The height thing is one of the few things that actually bothers the candidate," Haberman said in a tweet. In short order, the tweet drew the ire of Bloomberg senior adviser Tim O'Brien. "The ‘height thing'...
