Michael Bloomberg Can Heal America

According to Judge Judy. I just threw up in my mouth a little thinking about it.

Of course she does

old whore is from New York City
For decades she has supported hard line gun control. "Assault Weapons" bans, Firearms testing and gun licensing, raising ages to own firearms
Hell she wants IQ and psychological exams to own a firearm

Remember, she voted for Obama

scroll this larry king interview up to 9:00 for her anti RKBA stances

The media is there to tell you - only!

I despise Television personalities, whatever their resume'. Anyone on the conventional media, is a leftist caged Baboon, largely - there are few exceptions.
If it's on TV., and is speaking, it is lying(or flinging feces) - and is working 'words' for a master, that wants to be your master also!
All media works for a master - advertising(the media is dependent on it)! The very persons selling to you, are those working against the Populous, and working for what they believe you need!
The media isn't there to inform you, it's there to convince you, tell you, that there is something you need - not what you want, at all! It inserts unwanted ideas - their ideas, in your head! Many are still unaware of this! - and still use the TV for their primary information source.

So the country has been spared a few year and hopefully a few more. Once the communist gain power again...it’s on. Those “64,000,000” in ‘16 will eat themselves in ‘27!

Maybe,,,,,several Senators,,,RINO's are becoming real wobbly about the ongoing House crap.

They should not have the needed numbers to convict in the Senate,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,but,,,,,, ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,one does not know for sure until the bastards vote,,and they are going to have to vote.

I sure hope/pray,,,,,Trump is preparing an impeachment team of "dream team" lawyers,,,,,,like the ones that got OJ off.

Bloomberg and his billions is the problem in the USA. First he spends millions to influence state governments to add new gun controls, he gave our governor a million.

“Bloomberg criticized what he called ‘an endless barrage of lies,’” noted SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. “But that’s exactly what we’ve seen from the gun prohibition lobby, exemplified by Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety. From deceptively combining suicide and homicide data to inflate what they call the number of ‘gun violence’ victims, to inflating the number of school shootings which the Washington Post called ‘flat wrong,’ and suggesting that raising the age limit for purchasing firearms and banning modern sporting rifles will somehow prevent mass shootings, the gun control campaign has been built on layers of false promises.

Add to that he put up $100 million in 2018 to get democrat's elected to the house. He is better organized than the democrat party and plans to spend $2.5 billion to beat Trump. He officially entered the race today.

Saw an ad on KOTV for Bloomberg this morning. Even mentions his support for "gun safety".

Why a communist anti-gun billionaire would spend money campaigning in Oklahoma is confusing. We don't have many electoral votes, and he ain't fixin' to get the ones we have.

He's just advertising his personal brand,,,,making more money.
When you're the 11th richest man in the world,,,,,,you have hobbies,,,,and or are seeking more power and control over others.
Take ya pick as to why.

I was reading an interview on the net and it's said to be Bloombergs views. I wasn't there so I don't know if it's true being how the media can't be trusted. If it's true it shows a lot about Bloombergs thinking.


MARGARET HOOVER: The United States currently accounts for 15 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions. China accounts for 30 percent of greenhouse gas emissions. How do we, even if we get to zero, how do you get India, China, and the other countries to be good partners.
MICHAEL BLOOMBERG: China is doing a lot. Yes, they’re still building a bunch of coal-fired power plants
HOOVER: And they’re still burning coal.
BLOOMBERG: Yes they are. But, they are now moving plants away from the cities. The Communist Party wants to stay in power in China and they listen to the public. When the public says ‘I can’t breathe the air,’ Xi Jinping is not a dictator. He has to satisfy his constituents, or he’s not going to survive.
HOOVER: He’s not a dictator?
BLOOMBERG: No, he has a constituency to answer to.
HOOVER: He doesn’t have a vote, he doesn’t have a democracy. He’s not held accountable by voters. Is the check on him just a revolution?
BLOOMBERG: You’re not going to have a revolution. No government survives without the will of the majority of its people. He has to deliver services. The Chinese Communist Party looks at Russia and they look for where the communist party is and they don’t find it anymore and they don’t want that to happen.”

The history of mankind is replete with assholes, like "Peace in our Time" Diplomats; rich men who want to be Kings; and other psychotic commie politicians like Castro and Chavez, who believe they can kill their way to power.

We live in perilous times.

I heard a theory yesterday that Bloomberg joined the race so he wasn't limited on how much he could spend in the race. Under the laws if he isn't running then every dollar spent is watched.

buddy, you are insane if you think lil' mickey is "Centrist"

Jim's point is valid
he knows there is NO way he can win nomination
He's anti Weed
He's the infamous Stop & Frisk Mayor of New York
on top of that he was the one who ordered just a crazy degree of operations surveilling Mosques, etc in the City something the NYPD is on the record stating was a utter waste of their resources

On his plus side for progressives are his anti RKBA stances and bottomless pockets
My opinion he is going to attempt to buy the DNC and steer policy internally with his billions

He's just being pragmatic
Bloomers really don't support the Green New Deal or Wealth Taxes much less Universal Health Care for All so he's going to use his money as leverage to lean on whomever he picks in the end to back
that won't be Harris or Sanders btw in my opinion, probably Uncle Joe Biden

will to power;
by any means.

bolshies like bloomberg taking states blue one by one is merely the systematic means to the end of totalitarianism, using the useful idiots, and fellow travelers as convenient tools.

access to political office is purchased, and/or extorted,
by whatever means eventually ends up in the same destination: "silver or lead".

The above link, is why they need to get rid of guns by electing a Dem, or by removing Trump.

Yes, it was Gov't policy to move the BLM into your communities like Cuba, by removing you from your home.

Yeah, I don't think he's "centrist". I'm saying he appears more "center" than the looney-tunes left-tards in the Dems' stable. He'll say he's "tough on crime" and he's "anti-drug". He'll say he's a "pragmatist" and that he'll be good for the economy.

"How we burned in the prison camps later thinking: what would things have been like if every security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if during periods of mass arrests people had simply not sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, ham- mers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand. . . . The Organs [police] would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers . . . and notwithstanding all of Stalin‘s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt." - A. Solzhenitsyn, Gulag Archipelago

And he'll be just another Hilary that everybody hates unless they're getting his money.
