    If Bloomberg has any chance of winning the nomination, he has to redirect his resources during the primary and run ads against Sanders -- not Trump. Bloomberg needs to use the next $400 million in ad spending to attack Sanders on his potential weaknesses in a general election and highlight how far left his campaign is.

    Social media platform Twitter said on Friday it was suspending 70 accounts of supporters of billionaire Democrat presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg’s for “spam-like” behavior. The suspension came days after the Wall Street Journal revealed that Bloomberg had hired 500 people to regularly post messages on social media supporting him. Mike Bloomberg also said Friday he would release three women from confidentiality agreements that bar them from speaking about sexual harassment or discrimination lawsuits filed against them. …
  • Bloomberg 3rd Party ****VANITY****

    I told you that Bloomberg’s strategy all along was 3rd Party candidacy. But he had to start Democrat because that's his base. Last night they played right into his strategy. He's got great publicity of how the nut cases pushed him out of the party. It'll force a runoff, a two party race.
  • 'Yes, Donald, I do love you': New video shows Mike Bloomberg praising Trump as former mayor's past comments come back to haunt his presidential campaign

    New video has surfaced of Mike Bloomberg explaining the time he told Donald Trump he loves him as the former New York City mayor continues to face scrutiny for his past friendship with the president. Bloomberg was engaging in a conversation with a crowd at the University of Oxford’s Saďd Business School as part of the Distinguished Speaker Series in December 2016 — almost a month to the day after Trump was elected. He noted his previous close relationship to the then-president-elect and even mentioned that he once told Trump, “Yes, Donald, I do love you.” The billionaire explained that...

    Reuters ^ | February 18, 2020 | by Joseph Ax, Michelle Price
    NEW YORK - U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg on Tuesday outlined a sweeping financial services policy proposal to rein in Wall Street trading, boost consumer protections, increase Americans’ access to banking services, and crack down on financial crime. The left-leaning platform marks a striking turnaround for the former Republican New York mayor who made his $60 billion fortune in financial services and who in the past has criticized reforms introduced following the 2007-2009 financial crisis. Among the most eye-catching proposals is a tax of 0.1% on transactions in stocks, bonds and payments on derivative contracts, bolstering the “Volcker Rule”...

    Mike Bloomberg’s campaign for president spent a colossal amount of money in the final quarter of 2019 as he attempts to catch up to and surpass Democratic rivals. Bloomberg’s campaign spent over $180 million at the end of 2019, according to a newly released Federal Election Commission filing. The massive expenditure amount went toward TV ads, field staff and his technology firm, Hawkfish. The record shows Bloomberg’s campaign spent over $11 million on the digital firm. The company has become the primary digital ad agency for Bloomberg’s operation. He launched his bid for president at the end of November, several...

    Just when you think today’s politics couldn’t get any more nuts, liberal billionaire 2020 Democratic candidate Michael Bloomberg decided to promote “Big Gay Ice Cream.” The company being promoted, Big Gay Ice Cream, has about the same level of cringe as Kellogg’s LGBT-themed cereal. Their “best-known cone” is actually called “Salty Pimp.”

    Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg would push for all new cars to be electric by 2035 and new buildings to produce zero carbon emissions by 2025 as part of clean energy plans he released this week. Bloomberg’s latest climate plans build off his December plan to cut the United States’ carbon emissions by 50% by 2030. That’s less ambitious than the Green New Deal that many of his competitors have embraced that calls for achieving net-zero carbon emissions within 10 years. Bloomberg’s plans do not include total costs or specifics on how they would be paid for, details his campaign...

    Here are some categories of human beings that allegedly exist in the multi-year augmented media reality that we call the Democratic presidential primary. First, the "candidates." These are people who, for whatever reason, think they deserve to be the commander-in-chief and have decided the best way of obtaining this position is by seeking the nomination of the major political party that does not happen to control the White House at the moment. This involves, among other things, making speeches and holding fundraisers and appearing at various events in a wide number of states. Which brings us to the "voters,"

    <p>RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Democratic presidential hopeful Michael Bloomberg voiced strong support Tuesday for enacting new gun regulations in Virginia a few months after groups he backs spent millions of dollars helping Democrats win full control of state government.</p> <p>But the former New York City mayor said confiscating the military-style assault rifles already in circulation would be unworkable. And Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam said he has no plans to confiscate guns or cut electricity to gun owners who refuse, responding to what he called “misinformation” spreading online about his gun control plans.</p>

    Billionaire Democrat Michael Bloomberg is putting tens of millions of more dollars behind a new television ad casting himself as uniquely qualified to defeat President Donald Trump. The ad is set to begin running Wednesday in all 50 states, including the first four on the presidential primary calendar. The former New York City mayor, who entered the presidential race less than two weeks ago, launched his White House bid by introducing himself to voters across America in an initial national advertising campaign backed by close to $40 million. The spending behind the new one is being described as consistent with...

    Michael Bloomberg on Sunday apologized for his longstanding support of the controversial “stop-and-frisk” police strategy ahead of a potential Democratic presidential run, a practice that he embraced as New York’s mayor and continued to defend despite its disproportionate impact on people of color. Addressing a black church in Brooklyn, Bloomberg said he was “sorry” and acknowledged it often led to the detention of blacks and Latinos. “I can’t change history,” Bloomberg told the congregation. “However today, I want you to know that I realize back then I was wrong.” Bloomberg’s reversal is notable for someone who is often reluctant to...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., had a billionaire in his sights at a campaign rally in Iowa Saturday night — and for once, it wasn’t President Trump. “Tonight we say to Michael Bloomberg, ‘Sorry, you ain’t gonna buy this election,’” Sanders told a crowd in Coralville, outside Iowa City. “ … Those days are gone.” […] Sanders also excoriated Bloomberg for avoiding the earliest states on the primary and caucus calendar and focusing his efforts on the states that hold nominating contests on Super Tuesday and later in 2020. “You’re not going to get elected president by avoiding Iowa, New Hampshire,...

    Most presidential candidates launch their campaigns with a rally, or a trip to Iowa or New Hampshire. On Thursday evening, a few hours after aides called The New York Times to say he was really, actually—no, seriously going to do this, Mike Bloomberg tucked in for a small dinner at a French bistro on the Upper East Side of Manhattan where a plate of french fries goes for $10. The next day, he sent a private plane with a few aides aboard to file his paperwork in Alabama. Now, as we enter year 15 of Is he actually going to...

    The best campaign money can buy is already off to a shaky start. A fake 2020 campaign logo and slogan for Michael Bloomberg was spreading like wildfire Saturday. The logo emerged on the website Bloomberg2020.org — which is unaffiliated with the campaign. “No affiliation at all. We will be asking them to make clear they are completely unaffiliated,” longtime Bloomberg confidante Howard Wolfson said in one of more than a half-dozen tweets correcting the record to big-name accounts sharing the fake website. It is unclear who is behind the logo or website, which is also selling Bloomberg 2020 campaign shirts...

    Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci said late Friday that there is "no question" that Michael Bloomberg would be "the No. 1 threat" to President Trump should the former New York City mayor enter the 2020 Democratic presidential primary. "I think the president would be very intimidated by a guy like Michael Bloomberg," Scaramucci told CNN's Chris Cuomo. "He's a New Yorker, he could stand the onslaught of the president's bullying, he's worth probably five to eight times the president's net worth, he could spend a fortune defending himself and getting ads up in all areas of the country."...
