  • How Mark Robinson Beat Bloomberg's Billions to Win North Carolina's Second-Highest Office

    01/12/2021 5:22:49 AM PST · by Kaslin · 13 replies ^ | January 12, 2021 | Salena Zito
    As one of 10 children growing up in extreme poverty in Greensboro, North Carolina, Mark Robinson has defied a lot of odds in life: an alcoholic and abusive father, foster care stints and an overwhelmed single mother. After joining the Army Reserves right out of high school, he married and had two children while drifting through various jobs making furniture, a profession that kept evaporating as each plant he worked for relocated to Mexico. In 2018, he attended Greensboro's city council meeting to voice his frustration over the town's decision to ban a local gun show and found himself giving...

    Bloomberg News owner Michael Bloomberg spent millions trying to prop up pro-abortion candidates in the 2020 elections. Open Secrets records show Bloomberg gave the Planned Parenthood Votes (PPV) super PAC at least $4 million in the 2020 electoral cycle. The group, associated with Planned Parenthood, “makes contributions to candidates who support abortion,” according to Influence Watch. The grand total PPV spent on the 2020 federal elections amounted to $10,092,809. This means that Bloomberg’s contribution accounted for a whopping 40 percent of the pro-abortion group’s entire spending on federal elections in 2020.

    As Twitchy reported last week, Vox’s Ian Millhiser was doing the math on how much it would cost a billionaire like Michael Bloomberg to literally pay Democrats to move to sparsely populated red states in order to flip the Senate blue. Millhiser’s ingenious plan was to pay 80,000 Democrats $50,000 each to live in Wyoming long enough to vote in a Senate election. Maybe not so remarkably, a ton of gender studies majors working as baristas in New York City were anxious to sign up; some even thought they’d be doing the people of Wyoming a favor by importing culture...

LeBron James and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, are among those celebrities listed as having paid monies to the nonprofit Florida Rights Restoration Coalition (FRRC), the Tampa Bay Times reports. According to the paper, some $27 million in fines and fees have been paid.

    There doesn’t appear to be an end in sight for the hundreds of millions Bloomberg News owner Michael Bloomberg is willing to spend to buy the U.S. election for Democrats. The liberal billionaire’s new schtick is elevating Democratic candidates down-ballot who are like-minded with his extremist vision on climate change. Specifically, Bloomberg is dumping an “additional $20 million into this election cycle, flooding the airwaves in North Carolina, Texas and Arizona to promote down-ballot candidates who share his views on climate,” according to Axios. The outlet noted that this cash dump is “on top of the $100 million he pledged...

    (Aug. 24) The Republican Party formally nominated President Donald Trump for a second term in the White House Monday, one of the first acts of a GOP convention that has been dramatically scaled down to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Trump has sought to minimize the toll of the pandemic, but its impact was evident as proceedings began in Charlotte. Instead of the thousands of people who were expected to converge on this city for a week-long extravaganza, just 336 delegates participated in a roll-call vote from a Charlotte Convention Center ballroom. The GOP convention is a crucial moment...

    It is bad enough to come to the realization that Americans are becoming a cowardly people. What makes it worse is that within living memory we have the example of heroic men and women who laid down their lives to save others as the Twin Towers toppled and thousands of heartbeats fell silent. Friday, the feckless leaders of New York City’s September 11th Memorial Museum have chosen to dishonor the memory of those heroes by cancelling the annual light display to their lasting memory. The reason given for cancelling this display, an annual prayer and tender opportunity for reflection, is...

    On Wednesday evening, Rep. Xochitl Tores Small’s campaign sent out a fundraising email introducing Emma Caccamo as Torres Small’s new campaign manager. Caccamo previously worked as the campaign manager on Teresa Leger de Fernandez’s race up in the 3rd Congressional District, where Leger de Fernandez won against disgraced ex-CIA operative Valerie Plame, state Rep. Joseph L. Sanchez, District 1 District Attorney Marco Sernce, and a handful of others. Far-left, abortion up-to-birth Rep. Xochitl Torres Small is also another benefactor of EMILY’s List, which has endorsed her for her unashamed abortion up-to-birth policies, previously when she worked for Planned Parenthood, and...

    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,...

    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...

    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.
