Bloomberg’s In! Sort of. Maybe.

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this #WINNING yet? – The Dow Jones Industrials and S&P 500 set new record high closes on Thursday amid very solid corporate earnings reports and optimism about an interim trade deal with China. The NASDAQ also had a gain for the day and closed at its second-highest level of all-time.

Despite all the howling from liberal “experts” that tariffs would destroy the market, the Dow is up by almost 11%, the S&P 500 by almost 14% and the NASDAQ by right at 16% since President Trump first announced tariffs on China in February 2018. Maybe it’s time to find some new “experts.”

Mayor Big Gulp dips his toe into the race. Will he go all-in? – Former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg, the billionaire professional nanny who famously outlawed the selling of sugary soft drinks in cups larger than 20 ounces, made the first move towards getting into the race for the 2020 Democrat nomination Thursday when he filed paperwork to get himself on the ballot in Alabama.

While most corrupt fake news media swooned hysterically at the prospect of another big Democrat hero entering the race, Tal Axelrod at The Hill got the story right in a piece headlined, “Bloomberg signals interest in entering presidential race.” Bloomberg is filing the paperwork in Alabama because it is the state with the earliest filing deadline. What he did yesterday was just a baby step towards getting ready to formally enter the race.

The ex-Mayor has not formed up a campaign committee, hired campaign staff or done any of the myriad other things anyone must do in order to mount a presidential campaign. He can do those things very quickly when he makes his final decision, since he, like Donald Trump, is a billionaire who can self-fund his own effort, but until he does those things, he’s just dipping his toe in the water.

Here’s a big catch with Mayor Bloomberg, though: At age 77, he is actually nine months older than the geriatric Joe Biden, who really does appear to be in a state of rapid mental decline. Bloomberg appears to be in much better physical and mental condition than Biden, but this is an extremely advanced age for a person seeking the presidency. Ronald Reagan, our oldest serving President in history, was 77 when he left office after 8 years on the job. Bloomberg would be 78 on his inauguration day.

Bloomberg will presumably base his campaign on an “I’m the one who isn’t batsh*t crazy” strategy, but as Joe Biden has discovered, that strategy has limited utility in a field crowded with various levels of Alinskyite/Marxist grifters. As of today, Biden, a massive front-runner just 6 months ago, finds himself running in 4th place in Iowa, a weak 2nd in New Hampshire, and clinging to an increasingly-tenuous lead in the national polls.

If you consider Preacher Pete Buttigieg to also not be batsh*t crazy, then as of today, in the RealClearPolitics average of national polls, the “I’m the one who isn’t batsh*t crazy” segment of the Democrat voter base amounts to just 35%. Add in Amy Klobuchar and you get to 37%. Tacking on Andrew Yang and Tulsi Gabbard gets you to 41%.

Now, Bloomberg presumably wants to just jump in and divvy up that minority pie even further, because it is a mistake to believe that Biden and/or Buttigieg are just going to throw up their hands and shout “no mas!” like Roberto Duran (you Millennials will have to Google that reference) just because some guy who hasn’t held elected office in six years is jumping in with a lot of media fanfare. Should Bloomberg actually fully enter the race, the most likely impact would be to end Biden’s status as the national front-runner and basically make it even less likely that any candidate in the field would be able to accumulate enough delegates during the primaries to win the nomination on the first ballot at next year’s convention.

You are going to see a lot of wild predictions from your fake news media today and over the weekend about Bloomberg somehow becoming an immediate front-runner in the race. But once all of that settles and Democrat voters start to see just how un-exciting this guy truly is, his most likely impact will be to simply muddle the picture further than it already is.

Meanwhile, the Fainting Felon sits out there in her wardrobe of pantsuits and hospital gowns, waiting to waltz in as the Party’s savior at a hung convention next summer.

You just could never make this stuff up, folks.

P.S.: If you really believe that Bloomberg actually isn’t batsh*t crazy, invest a couple of minutes in reviewing this clip from a September interview:

And just for your further edification, here are photos of Mr. Bloomberg paling around with Jeffrey Epstein’s partner, Ghislaine Maxwell:

Why 2020 Will End With a Trump Landslide

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Donald Trump is going to be re-elected in a landslide in 2020. In reality, the Democrats are behaving as if they already know their fate is basically sealed. That’s what all these congressional investigations are really all about – a panicked effort to keep portraying a duly-elected President as if he’s a criminal in the wake of the impending end of the failed Mueller Witch Hunt.

Those investigations will fail, just as Mueller has failed, to “get” the President, because the President is not a crook. Jerrold Nadler and his House Judiciary Committee sent out 81 subpoenas on Monday as the opening salvo in an effort to dummy up a case of “obstruction of justice” against Trump. This is a case that Mueller and his band of Clinton/Obama hacks has been trying to construct for almost two full years now, and utterly failed.

Are we really to believe that a congressional committee with far less investigatory power and fewer resources is going to be able to succeed where Mueller failed? Please.

In a few weeks, Bug-Eyed Adam Schiff and the Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee will be kicking off their own witch hunt effort to try to dummy up an “abuse of power” case against Mr. Trump. Mueller and his hacks have also gone down that road over the last 22 months and discovered a big, yellow “Dead End” sign.

Also along around the first of April, Elijah Cummings and the Dems on the House Oversight Committee will start their own witch hunt attempt to paste together a case on “public corruption.” Again, Mueller and his fellow American Gestapo members have been there, failed at that.

But the Democrats will go down these various dead-end paths anyway, and keep them all alive right through Election Day 2020 for one simple reason: President Donald Trump is running an extraordinarily successful presidency. The economy is humming, the stock market is booming, retirement funds are growing, ISIS has been utterly destroyed, and America is at relative peace in the world for really the first time in this century.

The Democrats hate all of that.

Even worse, the Trump presidency has been economically fantastic for Hispanic and Black Americans, with both demographic groups now experiencing all-time record low unemployment and high wage growth. The same is true for women, whether they realize it or not, and polls show Trump’s approval ratings rising among all those critical demographic groups.

So, the Democrats fully understand that they cannot run the 2020 campaign on issues and have any hope at all of winning. Thus, they devised this highly-coordinated plan of attack involving three House committees shortly after the 2018 election, exactly as they devised the whole “Russia Collusion” fairy tale in the days following the 2016 election.

Those of us who read Mollie Hemingway’s writings at The Federalist knew all this was coming last November 7, just three days after the election. That was when she posted her piece summarizing the conversation he had overheard Nadler loudly conducting in an Amtrak rail car they shared that day. This is all pre-planned, well-coordinated with key propagandists in our fake news media in order to ensure maximum coverage and reinforcement in traditional and social media.

This is who the Democrats are – it is what they spend pretty much all their waking hours doing. Nothing they do is about policy or what’s best for America or our people – everything they do is about the acquisition and maintenance of political power.

Here’s why none of this will work: Because the Democrats have no credibility with the public outside of their own, hate-blinded voter base. The three chairmen conducting these witch hunts – Nadler, Schiff and Cummings – are three of the most toxic partisan hacks in the entire congress.

Valid or not, Robert Mueller at least had the initial presumption of impartiality in the public’s mind, thanks to completely inaccurate and glowing media coverage. But these three Democrat thugs have already been written off by all but he most highly-partisan Democrat voters as having no credibility whatsoever.

Nothing any of these people say or “find” during the course of their witch hunts is going to have the slightest impact on the independent voters who really matter. To the contrary, those same independent voters will be driven away by the inevitable over-reaching and rank demagoguery to which various Democrat members of these committees will regularly resort. We already saw that happen in Cummings’ hearing with Michael Cohen.

All of which is why, as I told you way back in February 2017, Donald J. Trump is destined to be a two-term President, and a truly great President.

2020 is going to be a landslide.

That is all.
