The Unbearable Arrogance of Being Mike Bloomberg

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

There is nothing small about Mini-Mike’s ego. As the billionaire oligarch continues his attempt at a leveraged buyout of the Democrat Party and its presidential nomination, there is no bigger factor getting in his way than his own unbearable arrogance. Let’s go through the highlights of what we have heard from the former Mayor of New York City in just the past week:

Stop and Frisk – A week ago today, video leaked of a 2015 speech in which Bloomberg, then 3 years removed from his final day as Mayor, bragged to an audience in the starkest, and most racist of terms about the “stop and frisk” policy he employed in the city’s minority neighborhoods:

That video gave us, in part, this infamous quote:

So, one of the unintended consequences is people say ‘Oh my God, you are arresting kids for marijuana that are all minorities.’ Yes, that’s true. Why? Because we put all the cops in minority neighborhoods. Yes, that’s true. Why do we do it? Because that’s where all the crime is.

And look, the way you get the guns out of the kids’ hands is to throw them up against the walls and frisk them.

Lovely.

Bloomberg’s hostile workplace for women. – In a February 15 piece – that it very interestingly chose not to hide behind its famous pay wall – The Washington Post detailed Bloomberg’s years of dealing with dozens of lawsuits filed by female employees over the hostile workplace he created and maintained at his computer and media operations.

The piece, which is at least 3,000 words long, goes into great detail about Bloomberg’s demeaning treatment of women in his workplaces, a pattern that apparently went on for decades. Here is just one of the examples of Mini-Mike’s brutish behavior towards female employees detailed in the article:

Garrison complaint

89. On April 11, 1995 at approximately 11:20 a.m., Bloomberg was having a photograph taken with two female Company salespeople and a group of N.Y.U. Business School students, in the company snack area. When Bloomberg noticed Garrison standing nearby, he asked, “Why didn’t they ask you to be in the picture? I guess they saw your face.” Continuing his penchant for ridiculing recently married women in his employ, Bloomberg asked plaintiff, “How’s married life? You married?” Plaintiff responded that her marriage was great and was going to get better in a few months: that she was pregnant, and the baby was due the following September. He responded to her “Kill it!” Plaintiff asked Bloomberg to repeat himself, and again he said, “Kill it!” and muttered, “Great! Number 16!” suggesting to plaintiff his unhappiness that sixteen women in the Company had maternity-related status. Then he walked away.

Good grief. Liberal women are defending this guy?

But wait, there’s more!

But wait There's more - Billy Mays - quickmeme

Mini-Mike promotes death panels! – Here is Bloomberg explaining to a family how he would reduce healthcare costs by just sentencing the elderly to death:

Full text:

All of these costs keep going up. Nobody wants to pay anymore money. And at the rate we’re going healthcare is going to bankrupt us. So not only do we have a problem we’ve got to sit here and say which things we’re going to do and which things we’re not. Nobody wants to do that. If you show up with prostrate cancer and you’re 95 years old, we should say go and enjoy, you’ve had a long life, there’s no cure and we can’t do anything. If you’re a young person, we should do something about it. Society’s not willing to do that, yet.”

I swear I don’t make this stuff up – who could?

Oh, but that’s not all!

Knit Purl Pray Preach : Sermon for Sunday 15 November 2015: "That's (NOT) All, Folks"

Bloomberg on how farmers lack “grey matter.” – Today, we have the leak of this video in which Mini-Mike – who has likely never stepped foot on an actual farm in his entire life – tells an audience that he personally could teach anyone how to be a farmer, and expounds on how the tech industry requires the “grey matter” that farmers apparently lack:

I swear I don’t make this stuff up, folk. Honestly, who could?

Yet, despite all of this unbearable arrogance, the unbridled hubris this small man puts on display pretty much every day of the week, liberal women and men stand ready, willing and most certainly able to sell their souls – and their favorite political party – to this despicable human being.

Democrats: If they didn’t already exist, no one in their right mind would ever dream of inventing them.

That is all.

It’s a Sanders/Bloomberg Race Now: Either way, the Democrats Lose

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

As the campaign of Quid Pro Joe Biden collapses under the weight of its own rank dishonesty and a candidate who is clearly impaired, the high muckety-mucks of the Democrat Party and its big money donors are now going all-in on Mini-Mike Bloomberg. They all know that the nomination this July in Milwaukee of The Commie, Bernie Sanders, would spell certain doom for their party in November, as The Commie would not only lose the presidential contest to President Donald Trump, but also ensure massive losses in both houses of congress.

This dynamic is, in part, why you saw Bloomberg launch his “I’m thinking of picking the Pantsuit Princess as my running mate” trial balloon over the weekend. Mr. Excitement and the party leaders want to gauge Democrat voter reaction, hoping against hope that a Bloomberg/Coughing Crook ticket might mollify The Commie’s gang of leftist lunatic supporters and possibly unify the party for the general election.

Hah. Fat chance.

See, these people know they have a gigantic problem on their hands: As things stand today, it is almost inevitable that their convention will produce a nominee who will divide the party’s voter base. The collapse of Biden, the fast fade of Fauxcahontas and the simple non-viability of Preacher Pete for a variety of reasons means that their nominating contest has now boiled down to a contest between a lifelong communist who doesn’t even call himself a Democrat and a former Republican, a billionaire who only bothered to register as a Democrat a few years ago.

It is a contest between a Commie who is raising tens of millions of campaign dollars mainly from small contributions by tens of thousands of leftists nutjobs and an outright oligarch who is attempting to perform a very public leveraged buyout of the entire Democrat Party. Folks, this is not just a contest between liberals and moderates, as your corrupt news media attempts to portray it, it is a contest between two diametrically-opposed world views, all taking place under a single political party’s tent.

How do you unify that? You don’t.

Before we go any further, take a look at this set of projections produced by Nate Silver and 538.com:

Whose name is conspicuously missing from those results? That’s right: No Mini-Mike. The oligarch who has already dumped over $300 million of his own personal fortune into this race is not, according to 538.com, currently the favorite to win a single state on Super Tuesday, the date on which he has supposedly staked his entire effort. Not one. Damn. State.

Making matters even more perilous for those hoping to prevent a full Commie takeover of a Party in which he is not even a member, Mini-Mike is having a hard time getting his polling numbers up to the 15% threshold in those Super Tuesday states that would allow him to start actually being awarded some delegates. He’s getting close in Texas, where his ads have been ubiquitous for three months now, but is mired in the low single digits in California polls taken thus far.

Meanwhile, The Commie continues to surge in the polls, now having moved past Biden even in one South Carolina poll, ending thoughts of Quid Pro Joe’s unassailable firewall in that state.

The reality is that The Commie has all the momentum in this race and that TV and social media advertising can only take you so far, regardless of how many millions you pour into it. At some point, constant TV ads become so annoying that people tune them out and, if the ads continue, become openly hostile to them.

Once Super Tuesday has come and gone, 40% of the delegates in this race will have been awarded, and The Commie will have more of them than anyone else. Biden will end his disastrous campaign, as will Lieawatha. Klobuchar will hang on for awhile longer, but will ultimately run out of money and have to quit the race, probably before the end of March. Buttigieg will take his boutique vanity campaign all the way to the convention, as he will be the only other candidate who will be able to continue to raise enough money to mount a semi-credible effort.

Thus, the nominating contest for the “party of diversity” will boil down to a battle of attrition between three pasty-faced white guys – because of course it will – two of whom aren’t really even Democrats, the third of whom has never held any office higher than mayor of a mid-size college town in Indiana.

The big problem there for the Party is that all three men have very limited ceilings governing their appeal to voters, and the proportional awarding of delegates in these primaries will ensure than none of them will be able to go into the convention having won the majority of delegates needed to prevail on the first ballot. As things stand today, that almost certainly means that Sanders, who will enter the convention having won the most delegates, will see the nomination taken from him on a second ballot in which all the Party’s “Super Delegates” will be able to vote.

And if you think the violence-prone Sanders support base is going to quietly accept that outcome and unify around an oligarch and his Grasping Grifter running mate, boy, do you have another think coming. Milwaukee will become riot central in such a scenario and the Democrat Party will become unalterably divided.

Sanders himself will most likely just end up being bought off again like he was in 2016 – although the price will be higher this time – so no one should count on a third-party effort with him in the lead. But 40% of the Party’s current voter base will be forever disillusioned, and a good portion of them will become permanently disaffected after seeing the nomination once again stolen from their hero.

For Democrat Party leaders and funders, the only currently-viable scenario even worse than that would be for The Commie to get real momentum at his back and win the nomination outright. That would not only result in massive landslide losses in November, but the end of the Party as they have known it. The Democrat Party would, in that scenario. become America’s version of the British Labor Party, a loud collection of preening radical nincompoops who seldom manage to obtain any lever of actual power.

This is where the Democrats are as of today. If you can see any way out for them, let me know.

That is all.

Mini-Mike Sends up an Ominous Trial Balloon

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

Michael Bloomberg sent up a trial balloon on Saturday that should have us all very, very concerned. Mini-Mike had one or more of his lieutenants tell the Drudge Report that he is interested in picking the Pantsuit Princess to be his running mate should he win the Democrat Party’s presidential nomination. This is a very ominous sign that the entire Democrat Party is still working to install the most corrupt politician in American history in the nation’s highest office.

Regular readers here will know that I don’t believe Mr. Bloomberg is really interested in serving four years as President. The man is 78 years old, would be 79 a few weeks following his theoretical inauguration, and appears to have all the energy of the average tree sloth.

What he does have, though, is dollars – billions upon billions of dollars. Meanwhile, the Democrat National Committee is flat, dead broke. Its fundraising flat-lined over the last three years and it is deeply in debt, negating its ability to pour money into the campaigns of vulnerable Democrats in house and senate races.

Bloomberg hates Donald Trump from way back, and agreed to a plan to step in to fill the funding void left by the DNC’s absence of money. The most cost-effective way for Mini-Mike to do that is to declare himself a candidate and run hundreds of millions of dollars of anti-Trump TV and social media ads. Being a “candidate” allows him to qualify for preferential ad rates offered by the media to politicians, and allows him to pour as much of his personal fortune as he wants to without restrictions that apply to contributions to political parties or PACs.

Don’t get me wrong: Bloomberg wants to win the election, and he has deployed his billions to build out what is becoming a massive political operation that is going to allow him to buy an awful lot of votes on Super Tuesday, out of which he will almost certainly emerge as the only legitimate challenger to a takeover of the Democrat Party by The Commie, Bernie Sanders. But he just doesn’t have any intention of serving out a term in office.

Bloomberg has long been tied in with the Clintons and their despicable friends like Harvey Weinstein and Jeffrey Epstein, and has obvious reasons to want to ensure that President Trump does not win a second term in office. He has also profited immensely from globalism and all the unbalanced trade agreements that Trump is in the process of ending, and thus has a compelling personal financial interest in helping to execute a return to the old world order.

What better way to do that than to serve as the stalking horse for the Coughing Crook? Pick her as a running mate, win the November election, get sworn in and shortly thereafter develop some “health reason” for resigning. Suddenly, you have executed the Democrat Party’s four-year effort to reverse the results of the 2016 election and ensured the quick death of the American Republic.

So, the “leak” to the Drudge Report was likely just Bloomberg and the Democrats testing the waters to gauge the reaction by the pundits and the public. This first step will allow them to poll and focus group test new messages designed to build acceptance for such a ticket in the public’s collective mind.

You can expect both the Bloomberg camp and the Fainting Felon to start rolling those messages out in the days and weeks to come.

Just in case you don’t believe that The Commie is the clear front-runner in the Democrat race now, look at the results of the new YouGov poll:

Image may contain: 2 people

If The Commie can find ways to win both Nevada (likely) and South Carolina (where only a rapidly-fading Quid Pro Joe might be able to prevail) over the next two weeks, Mini-Mike may not be able to head him off. Waiting until Super Tuesday to get into the race was always a risky strategic move by Mini-Mike. As things stand right now, with Sanders also leading big in California and surging in several of the other Super Tuesday states, it may turn out to have been too late.

Fun.

That is all.

Mike Bloomberg Has Some ‘Splainin’ to do

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

Well, isn’t this just an inconvenient truth? – Just as he was beginning to gain traction in some national polls with his quarter-billion-dollar ad campaign – he now places third in the newest Quinnipiac national poll – Mini-Mike Bloomberg is about to face a hard truth about his real nature, and the policies he pursued while serving as Mayor of New York City.

The main policy in question is the so-called “stop and frisk” policy Bloomberg, who, remember, was then pretending to be a moderate Republican, aggressively enforced throughout his three terms in office. That policy helped to control crime rates in the most dangerous neighborhoods within New York’s five Burroughs by allowing police officers to stop and frisk anyone they considered suspicious without any real probable cause.

The policy was hugely successful, and was just fine for a Republican. But now, Mini-Mike is pretending to be a liberal Democrat, and trying to appeal to a voter base that has moved radically and violently to the political left over the last four years. Suddenly, the enforcement of a hugely-successful anti-crime policy that targeted mainly minority suspects (because, as you will hear Bloomberg say in a moment, that is where the vast majority of the crime is) becomes not an asset, but an enormous political liability.

Aware of this reality, Bloomberg has on a few occasions tried to preemptively explain this all away as a simple error in judgment. But this is a man who was Mayor of the nation’s largest city for 12 solid years, longer than Rudy Giuliani. Throughout those dozen years, Mini-Mike very aggressively pursued “stop and frisk” and many other anti-crime policies he inherited from Giuliani that without question targeted mainly minority communities.

Contrast that behavior to the policies of current Marxist/Democrat Mayor Bill DeBlasio, who has not only cancelled pretty much all of Bloomberg’s anti-crime measures, but is now just letting accused criminals out onto the streets without having to even post bail. This is the kind of chaos in the streets that the current Democrat voter base favors.

Bloomberg’s efforts at preemptive inoculation were already running into headwinds from the far-left radicals, but now his problems will become even more severe. Yesterday, audio leaked on Twitter of Bloomberg bragging to an audience in 2015 about “stop and frisk.” The language the ex-Mayor uses about minorities and their communities is very blunt and will serve to enrage identity politics radicals.

Below is a clip of the audio, followed by a transcript. You will see that Mini-Mike has, in the words of the late, great Desi Arnaz, “got some ‘splainin’ to do.”

Transcript:

95% of your murders – murderers and murder victims – you can line ’em up. You can just take the description, Xerox it and pass it out to all the cops. They are male minorities, 16 to 25. That’s true in New York, that’s true in virtually every city in America.

And, that’s where the real crime is. You’ve got to get the guns out of the hands of the people that are getting killed.  You want to spend the money on a lot of cops on the streets. Put those cops where the crime is, which means in minority neighborhoods.

So, one of the unintended consequences is people say ‘Oh my God, you are arresting kids for marijuana that are all minorities.’ Yes, that’s true. Why? Because we put all the cops in minority neighborhoods. Yes, that’s true. Why do we do it? Because that’s where all the crime is.

And look, the way you get the guns out of the kids’ hands is to throw them up against the walls and frisk them. And they start, and they say, ‘Oh, I don’t want to get caught.’ So they don’t bring the gun. They still have the gun, but they leave it at home.

Now, the corrupt national news media, in its role as the propaganda wing of the Democrat Party, will do everything it can to keep this audio covered up for Mini-Mike’s benefit. But it’s out there now, and every pro-Trump social media account will be repeating it to their audiences from now through November. You can also be certain that portions of this audio will become parts of hundreds of hours of Republican ad campaigns should Bloomberg ultimately manage to purchase the Democrat Party’s presidential nomination.

Again, this was an extremely effective policy, one that made the law-abiding citizens in these minority communities far safer than they are today under New York’s current Marxist Mayor. But it is also a policy that without question violated the civil rights of many innocent people, the vast majority of whom are target Democrat voters.

There is just no way to explain that language, coming as it did several years after Bloomberg had left office, as an innocent error in judgment. Regardless of how diligently the corrupt media works to cover this all up, Mini-Mike has a real problem in a Party that is so heavily reliant on minority votes to have any chance of winning. And the leaders of the Democrat Party now will have to decide if they really want to sell their presidential nomination to such a problematic billionaire.

Ain’t it great?

That is all.

UPDATE: About 10 minutes after I posted this piece, President Trump weighed in on this matter as only he can do:

Oh, man, this is, in a word, delicious.

UPDATE II: And now there’s this video. Unreal.

Democrats in a Super Panic on Super Bowl Sunday

Today’s Campaign Update, Part III
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

No, the Des Moines Register Poll did not kill itself. – The leaders in the Democrat Party are now in full-blown panic as The Commie closes in on a win in Iowa. So panicked, in fact, that they almost certainly spiked the final Des Moines Register poll – a tradition for 76 years running – that was to be released on Sunday.

The narrative being pushed by the corrupt news media is that the Register, and its co-sponsor, CNN (because of course it’s CNN) decided to scrap the poll because one of the people conducting the poll consistently mispronounced the name of Pete Buttigieg. Which is about the lamest false narrative the Democrats and their media toadies have ever attempted to push.

With other polls released this week showing The Commie with a clear lead – which has expanded as the week has gone on – it’s pretty obvious that the folks at the DNC and CNN didn’t want the Register poll coming out the day before the caucuses showing an even bigger lead for Sanders.

This of course raises the specter that the DNC may well be planning to falsify the results of the caucuses, and they thus didn’t want to have a Register poll showing The Commie with a double-digit lead in advance of some sort of miracle “win” by Quid Pro Joe or CNN’s favorite candidate, Little Big Mouth Always Running. Do not be surprised if this sort of “upset” ends up being the official result tomorrow night.

Democrat leaders are so panicked by the looming acquittal of President Trump and what is certain to be a gangbusters State of the Union Address Tuesday evening, in fact, that John Freaking Kerry was overheard in the lobby of a Des Moines hotel loudly discussing the possibility of jumping into the race in order to save the party from a total Commie takeover:

DES MOINES, Iowa — Former Secretary of State John Kerry — one of Joe Biden’s highest-profile endorsers — was overheard Sunday on the phone at a Des Moines hotel explaining what he would have to do to enter the presidential race amid “the possibility of Bernie Sanders taking down the Democratic Party — down whole.”

Sitting in the lobby restaurant of the Renaissance Savery hotel, Kerry was overheard by an NBC News analyst saying “maybe I’m f—ing deluding myself here” and explaining that in order to run, he’d have to step down from the board of Bank of America and give up his ability to make paid speeches. Kerry said donors like venture capitalist Doug Hickey would have to “raise a couple of million,” adding that such donors “now have the reality of Bernie.”

Asked about the call later on Sunday, Kerry said that he was “absolutely not” contemplating joining the Democratic primary race. He reiterated this sentiment in a tweet later, saying that “any report otherwise is f—ing (or categorically) false.” Minutes later, he deleted the tweet and reposted it without the expletive.

Yes, friends, the Democrat Party is so utterly bereft of any serious presidential talent that some think John Kerry might be a stronger candidate than Mini-Mike Bloomberg or a rapidly fading Quid Pro Joe.

Speaking of Mini-Mike, President Trump hilariously trolled him with this Sunday morning Tweet:

Now, the President’s statement about Bloomberg’s box negotiation was no doubt true, and it was designed to extract a specific response from Mini-Mike. Predictably, Bloomberg responded within an hour by outright denying that he has any desire to stand on a box or other platform in the coming Democrat debates.

This means that Mini-Mike now has a choice of either proving himself to be an outright liar by going ahead and standing on a box or stool to make himself look as tall as his competitors in the debates, or forego the platform and watch his poll numbers collapse when viewers realize he really is only about 5 feet tall.

There is a reason why only one president in the television era – Jimmy Carter – was less than 6 feet tall. Trump fully understands that, which is why he taunted Mini-Mike with that tweet.

And Bloomberg, every bit as panicked all every other prominent Democrat today, fell for it hook, line and sinker.

This is glorious.

Update: Now CNN has fallen for Trump’s trolling of Bloomberg as well:

You seriously could never make these people up. Never in a million zillion years.
