    flashback 4/3/2020 There’s lots of talk about being too tough on crime. As Michael Bloomberg ran for president earlier this year he faced criticism for his “stop- and-frisk” policy when he was the mayor of New York City. Gov. Larry Hogan was at odds with the Maryland General Assembly during this year’s legislative session over his support of mandatory sentencing for gun violations. When Hillary Clinton ran for president nearly four years ago she was forced to apologize for once saying there were predators in the black community. Likewise there are well meaning progressives who are concerned about discriminatory policing,...

    Liberal billionaire Michael Bloomberg has gone from “scrapping” his plan for an independent expenditure campaign to reportedly planning to spend a heap of cash to support presumptive Democratic nominee for president Joe Biden’s candidacy. Talk about a complete 180-degree turnaround.
  • Sen. John Cornyn Counters Democrats: Enough Gun Control Already

    Breitbart.com ^ | 5/16/2020 | AWR Hawkins
    Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) countered a Democrat-led push for more regulations on “ghost guns” by making clear his belief that there is enough gun control already. On May 15, 2020, Breitbart News reported that Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and other Democrats are demanding background checks for “ghost guns” and kits containing parts that can be used to build guns. The Mike Bloomberg-founded gun control group, Everytown for Gun Safety, supports the Democrat push. Politico quoted Sen. Cornyn in a way that gave readers the impression that he also supported the advocacy. They reported that Cornyn “might...

    San Francisco, CA – When the Center for Medical Progress released its shocking series of videos in the summer of 2015, showing undercover footage of Planned Parenthood abortionists and executives discussing their lucrative trade in body parts harvested from aborted babies, it caused a tsunami of bad publicity for the nation’s largest supplier of abortions. The sale of tissues and organs of aborted babies for profit is illegal under 42 U.S. Codes 274e and 289g-2. It was not long before a San Francisco, California, Federal Court Judge placed a gag order sealed up much of the evidence gathered during the...

    Michael Bloomberg's short-lived presidential bid reignited a long-simmering dispute over the widespread use of nondisclosure agreements at American corporations — especially at his own.His namesake company, Bloomberg LP, has used nondisclosure agreements broadly to conceal allegations and silence complaints from employees of sexual harassment or a hostile work environment, as published reports have documented.The story of one Bloomberg reporter and his wife showcases the widespread use of such legal restraints at the company — and how far their reach can extend.Six years ago, Bloomberg News killed an investigation into the wealth of Communist Party elites in China, fearful of repercussions...

    Bloomberg News shutdown an investigation into Chinese Communist Party elites, fired the reporter on the beat and then targeted that reporter’s wife to keep her mouth shut, according to a new NPR report. The Bloomberg reporters involved investigating the wealth of Chinese Communist Party elites had their efforts killed by their company six years ago, which was “fearful of repercussions by the Chinese government,” NPR reported Apr. 14. The outlet continued: “The company [Bloomberg News] successfully silenced the reporters involved. And it sought to keep the spouse of one of the reporters quiet, too.”

    NewsBusters ^ | 4/13/2020 | Joseph Vazquez
    Liberal billionaire Michael Bloomberg may have failed his ridiculously expensive White House bid, but the amount of cash he continues to spend is still being put to use for Democratic Congressional contenders. Data compiled by Advertising Analytics recently revealed that the liberal House Majority PAC had spent a whopping $52,303,503 on advertising so far helping Democrats competing for seats in the House of Representatives. Open Secrets data show that Bloomberg funded the super PAC with at least $11,400,000 so far this cycle, which is the equivalent of approximately 22 percent of the PAC’s 2020 House race expenditures. House Majority PAC...

    The Federalist ^ | 04/02/2020 | Christopher Bedford
    Beijing has lied about the coronavirus from the start, while here in the West our corporate media has actively and enthusiastically spread its lies to households across the free world. But now that news of China’s lies is beginning to seep out, will it make a difference? Will there even be corrections? Don’t count on it.Even before reports on incinerators “working around the clock,” massive orders for urns, government bribes to keep mourners quiet, and total government censorship, China’s lies were obvious. Even before China concealed the outbreak, blamed the U.S. military, and expelled foreign reporters, their lies were obvious.Their...
  • Bloomberg once said Social Security is a bigger Ponzi scheme than Bernie Madoff's

    The Week ^ | February 26, 2020
    Billionaire and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg twice compared Social Security to a Ponzi scheme when he was in office, CNN reports, which is a far cry from his current stance as a Democratic presidential candidate. Nowadays, Bloomberg has vowed to to strengthen entitlement programs, but he used to see them as a major hurdle in the effort to shrink the United States' deficit. During appearances on his old radio program "Live from City Hall," which were reviewed by CNN's KFile, Bloomberg made the Ponzi scheme comparison once in 2006 and again in 2009. The latter instance was...

    Key Points Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg is coming out in favor of boosting Social Security and creating new ways for American workers to save for retirement. The plans mark the latest addition to the former New York City mayor’s campaign platform, and puts him in line with other Democratic candidates who have called for shoring up Social Security benefits and the program’s long-term solvency. Bloomberg’s proposals also aim to help improve retirees’ lives, from giving low-income workers access to government-provided retirement savings plans to helping to ensure seniors get better access to health care and housing. ===================================================================== Mike Bloomberg...

    Presidential hopeful Mike Bloomberg takes credit for leading New York “through” the 9/11 attacks in a campaign ad. But there’s one problem: He didn’t become mayor until four months later. Touting his leadership chops, the billionaire released a 30-second video including the claim. “I led a complex, diverse city through 9/11 and I have common-sense plans to move America away from the chaos to progress,” Bloomberg, 78, is seen saying at a campaign rally. But Rudy Giuliani was mayor during the attacks, and he didn’t hand Bloomberg the keys to Gracie Mansion until Jan. 1, 2002.

    WASHINGTON — Mike Bloomberg’s failed White House bid cost the media mogul nearly $1 billion, according to a new FEC filing — double what was previously reported. The total cost of the Big Apple billionaire’s fully self-funded campaign was a stunning $935,360,675.56, the filing made public Friday shows.

    Promises made, promises — not kept? Failed 2020 Democratic presidential primary candidate Michael Bloomberg is now backtracking on his promise to use his multimillion-dollar campaign to support the presumptive Democratic nominee, according to NBC News’ Maura Barrett. Barrett stated in a tweet that “@MikeBloomberg is scrapping his plan to fund an independent expenditure campaign to support the Democratic nominee (he's endorsed @JoeBiden).” Bloomberg had promised to spend “$2 billion on either his own campaign or to help finance a Democratic nominee to unseat President Trump in the 2020 general election,” according to Fox Business Jan. 17.

    Two and a half weeks after Bernie Sanders slammed Michael Bloomberg for trying to "buy this election," the former New York City mayor dropped out of the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, having spent $570 million of his own money to win 61 delegates. Tom Steyer, the other billionaire in the race, did even worse, abandoning his campaign after spending more than $250 million and earning zero delegates. Those spectacular failures should give pause to the politicians and activists who argue that money poses a grave threat to democracy -- so grave that the Constitution must be amended to...
  • Bloomberg's Proudest Moment: When He Supported the Ground Zero Mosque.

    Before he folded his presidential campaign and turned to trolling President Trump on Twitter, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg declared at AIPAC last Monday: “I was never prouder than when I stood in the shadow of the Statue of Liberty and argued that Muslims had every right to build a Mosque anywhere in our city, including near the World Trade Center.” He may have been proud, but he was not successful. The infamous Ground Zero Mosque was Bloomberg’s pet project and was hailed by all the leftist intelligentsia, including Barack Obama, but the planned 16-story structure was not...

    During the Trump era, CNN's "Reliable Sources" has featured a roster of those whom the network calls "legendary journalists" to exhort the media masses and drive President Donald Trump out of the White House. The words "legendary journalist" are put on screen, and even in CNN transcripts. That would include PBS omnipresence Bill Moyers, Watergate welterweight Carl Bernstein, disgraced Dan Rather and the long-yelling former ABC anchor Sam Donaldson. The more aggressively liberal (and less professional) you are, the more "legendary" you become in the eyes of CNN. On Valentine's Day, CNN's Anderson Cooper brought on Donaldson to announce he...

    With Michael Bloomberg dropping out of the Democratic presidential race, Bloomberg News announces that it will again resume “normal coverage of the election.” But for Bloomberg News “normal” coverage means constant attacks on President Donald Trump, particularly his economic policies, to influence the election. Bloomberg spent over $550 million on his campaign, but that’s not the full story. It isn’t just Bloomberg’s massive ad campaign that is trying to make Americans feel that the country is heading in the wrong direction. His 2,700 reporters are working hard to attack Trump. A couple of weekends ago, right before the Coronavirus gyrations...
