    Several of the richest U.S. corporate executives have either paid a fraction of their cumulative wealth in federal taxes of nothing at all, according to a new report from the nonprofit media outlet ProPublica.What Happened: In its coverage, ProPublica said "America's billionaires avail themselves of tax-avoidance strategies beyond the reach of ordinary people. Their wealth derives from the skyrocketing value of their assets, like stock and property. Those gains are not defined by U.S. laws as taxable income unless and until the billionaires sell."However, ProPublica did not offer evidence that the executives being spotlighted were violating the U.S. tax code.The...

    Frank Gaffney, executive chairman and founder of the Center for Security Policy, said Michael Bloomberg’s relationship with the Chinese Communist Party — including “cooperation in the field of media” according the official Chinese government documents — amounts to a subversion of America’s national interest for the benefit of its primary geopolitical adversary. Gaffney drew on revelations detailing the Bloomberg-China ties in Alex Marlow’s Breaking the News: Exposing the Establishment Media’s Hidden Deals and Secret Corruption . “[Breaking the News] is focusing in on a vastly larger problem, but the microcosmic example of what Michael Bloomberg has done — both personally...

    Michael Bloomberg and his top associates at his namesake news conglomerate, Bloomberg LP, have regularly met in Beijing with top Chinese Communist Party (CCP) officials and propagandists, according to the Chinese government. I document these meetings, which have taken place over several years, in my book Breaking the News: Exposing the Establishment Media’s Hidden Deals and Secret Corruption, released May 18th. According to documents reviewed while researching for this book, these propagandists regulate Bloomberg LP and control the extent to which the former Democrat mega-donor-turned presidential candidate’s business can access the gigantic Chinese market. Michael Bloomberg himself has spoken favorably—even...

    A Bloomberg Opinion senior columnist joined the noisy cacophony of liberal elitists demanding Fox Corporation executive Lachlan Murdoch cancel conservative host Tucker Carlson. Timothy O’Brien’s anti-Carlson rant was headlined, “Fox News Thinks Tucker Carlson Is Still Good for Business.” O’Brien propagandized Anti-Defamation League (ADL) CEO Jonathan Greenblatt’s recent crusade to ask “advertisers gathered Tuesday for Global Marketer Week to press Fox Corp. to fire” Carlson. He then took a nosedive into absurd leftist bluster: “Carlson has been trafficking in white supremacist myths recently on Fox News and his broadcasts, Greenblatt said offer an ‘example of how hatred is being mainstreamed...

    Embattled governor Andrew Cuomo (D., N.Y.) has retained the services of a high-powered criminal defense attorney who defended Harvey Weinstein and Woody Allen against allegations of sexual assault. Elkan Abramowitz, a former federal prosecutor with close ties to Manhattan district attorney Cy Vance, will serve as legal counsel to the governor and his top aides, the Wall Street Journal reported Monday. New York attorney general Letitia James is investigating the Cuomo administration on several fronts. Three women have now accused the governor of sexual harassment. Allegations include unwanted kissing and touching, as well as inappropriate or suggestive comments, such as...

Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus made the public announcement, applauding Bloomberg as a friend and wishing him success in helping to guide the world through the coronavirus pandemic.

    Now that Democrats are poised to control the White House, Senate and House, the traditional game of finger-pointing and recrimination will begin inside the GOP. The first instinct for politicians will be to assign blame, call names and jockey for position. But the 2020 election wasn't just an election, it was a political watershed in which the rules and strategy for winning were rewritten. The November election (and Tuesday’s Georgia curtain call) wasn't won and lost by the tactics, spending, individual players and messaging in the weeks before Nov. 3, according to interviews conducted with more than three dozen frontline...

    CNBC ^ | 10/26/2020
    Democratic fundraisers are privately urging billionaire former presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg and his team to invest in hotly contested Senate races with just over a week until Election Day, according to people familiar with the matter. The pleas come as a super PAC aligned with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell floods these races with cash on behalf of the GOP candidates. The Senate Leadership Fund, which is run by allies of McConnell, is outraising and often outspending its Democratic counterpart, Senate Majority PAC, down the stretch. The Democratic group is linked to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. Bloomberg’s response to...

    Mike Bloomberg's climate change group is dumping $2.5 million into the North Carolina race for lieutenant governor to support Democrat Yvonne Holley in the final stretch before the election. "Holley, when elected, will be North Carolina’s first African American Lieutenant Governor, and will serve as president of the Senate, chair of the Energy Policy Council, and will determine the fate of critical legislation," Bloomberg's Beyond Carbon Victory Fund said in a statement. The group also announced Wednesday that it is spending roughly $2 million to support Democrats running for the Arizona Corporation Commission.

    It apparently wasn’t enough that liberal cash cow Michael Bloomberg was spending $100 million to help Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden to win Florida. Now, the billionaire owner of Bloomberg News is trying to solicit donations to ensure that convicted felons in the Sunshine State are given the chance to vote Biden into the White House.

    CBS Miami ^ | September 17, 2020
    Billionaire Mike Bloomberg’s commitment of $100 million to help Joe Biden’s campaign in Florida is a huge boon for Democrats and it could put President Trump on defense in a state that is critical to his reelection. At the end of his presidential campaign in March, Bloomberg pledged to spend “whatever it takes” to help Democrats beat Trump in November. Billionaire donors have long played a central role in supporting both parties. Yet no one has proposed pumping in so much cash to support a presidential campaign in a single state. Bloomberg’s allies say the investment is in line with...

    (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...

    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...

    A caravan of protesters — some wielding plastic pitchforks — descended on the Hamptons Wednesday to blast the rich and decry the nation’s rising income inequality. More than 100 drivers and about 200 marchers paid a visit to the homes of some of the world’s wealthiest people, including ex-New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg. “Tax the rich, not the poor!” the protesters chanted outside Bloomberg’s $20 million Southhampton mansion, with some calling the failed presidential candidate a “looter.”

    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,...

It was the former vice president’s first outing since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. He and wife Jill Biden, both wearing masks, laid a wreath at a memorial wall commemorating war veterans...
