Without insider information on that, I would say I expect Soros would be staunchly pro-EU connectivity. One might then ask about what the Queen did in supporting Boris Johnson's prorogation?

She has to think about she would be viewed by her subjects if she went against their elected desire in Brexit. Antagonizing her subjects would not have been the right choice (I can only say seeing her choice), even though she would see that EU-connectivity would have moved toward her globalism ideals seemingly in a nearer term.

We need to realize "our betters" are "in it" for the very long haul, where very few others afford themselves a comparable view. They can survive financially--thank you very much--for centuries. She doesn't need to win a given, single battle, particularly if engaging that way strengthened a Trump-like, anti-alien backlash and transatlantic sympathies.

Bill Clinton's being a Rockefeller heir fits right in with his Rhodes Scholarship. The indoctrination for Rhodes Scholars publicly goes "promote[s] unity between English-speaking nations" which would more deeply subordinate the US to the monarchy. The idea that a Rhodes Scholar would be elected to the presidency is antithetical to the outcome of the American Revolution. Stupid American electorate! In decades past we at least knew enough not to elect a Rockefeller, if only openly. Maybe in 2016 we took it one farther, haha!

After centuries of bloodline manipulation through arranged marriages, extramarital liaisons and the like, what flows through Prince William's veins now uniquely manifests representation from all thirteen families of the Illum.inati, (for lack of a better term). Let the rituals increase, *cough*, *cough*!

Things will be potentially more precarious in the coming decades.

You seemingly got close there to suggesting Bill Gates was a self-made man, which would be beyond laughable, if one knew his parents, particularly William Sr. What would make 100+ million copies of Windows 95 sail out the door in its first month, before Microsoft had even had its first billion-dollar year and billg was merely an 8-figure guy?

In a similar way, Soros isn’t his own man, either. The British crown purposely made him what he’s become through currency manipulation. Soros is a British Agent, which is understood in very few places.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

you’ve made a lot of sense today rx.

thanx for the insight.

"Bloomberg could spend $500m on the primary, and maybe $5b on a presidential campaign. I have zero doubt he could simply pledge his ownership stake in Bloomberg LP as collateral. Would it really be such a big deal if he left his daughter $40b instead of $50b?"

Absurd. He could spend every nickle and he's not getting the nom.

Jeb Bush spent $53M for each of his 3 delegates. That scales directly to Doomberg.

It's a kamikaze run to take out Biden, period. Drive up his negatives in the Super Tuesday states so he can't run the table before April.

It won't work. Even FReepers sometimes have no real idea how much pure political strength an 8-yr VP commands in any primary. But Biden's ace in the hole is his death grip on the Amish; no matter what Tuck Chodd's feverish brow dreams up about Aunt Georgamina. GropinJoe takes SC by 5 and everything beforehand is forgotten, then he goes into Super Tuesday and takes ALL but Kalifornia.

Then it's merely a matter of which Leftist defects for a 3rd-Party run.

Democrats politically destroyed.

Game over.

Trump re-elected.

[Bloomberg is incredibly smart. A friend of ours has worked for him since the very start. When we were last with him, (in July maybe?) he told us there is no way Bloomberg runs. We’ll see if he was right. He’s worked for Bloomberg for over 25 years.]


Someone’s floating the rumor that Bloomberg is gay. Color me skeptical. Comment?

Bloomberg couldn’t run for mayor as a Democrat because he never would have won the Democratic primary. He ran as a Republican because he could basically unchallenged in the primary.

Jeb Bush is, relative to Bloomberg, a dunce who slid into political office on the strength of his family name and the in-built political organization that afforded him, and lost anyway. Bloomberg is a sharp guy who figured out how to win in a city that was tired of his Republican predecessor and had this habit of giving 2/3 of its vote to Democrats. $250m did help him win 3 terms, but $150m did not help Meg Whitman win even one term. It’s not just money, but smarts. And smarts is something Bloomberg has in excess.

Show me an 8-yr VP who was primaried, they didn't always win the general, but THEY ARE NEVER PRIMARIED. Even freaking Ford put away Reagan in 1976 (which worked out for the absolute best).

THIS IS ALL FOR SHOW so the Donkeycrat handlers can run all that stupid money through their fingertips.

The Democrat candidate will be Biden - ________ .

It was Karamela's for the taking, but she wasn't a smart pol just a crude ratchet.

Warren is running for VP, and she just might get it by default, unless Buttgag runs 1 or 2 all the way through Super Tuesday.

There won't be any contested ballot in Milwaukee, it's all just bullshit CLICKBAIT.


So the real question here is, since Trump's re-election is a foregone conclusion, what can we commit Trump to NOW to punish the coup plotters? How can we fracture the Deep State?

We start with a Church Commission II; we punish every CIA reprobate with prison or Exile, the rest must swear a Loyalty Oath in front of the President; we dismantle the FBI and instead expand the Federal Marshal force within Homeland Security, and disperse them far and wide away from DC; finally, the Depts of Energy, Eduction, HUD, Interior, and AG are sublimated (eliminated) into Homeland Security, and again, those jobs are dispersed to the far corners of our beautiful country.

Our country would emerge far stronger, fitter, and with a 7-2 SCOTUS, Constitutionally prepared to take on the headwinds of the next 100 years.

Our grandparents saved this country once, now it's our turn.

You're forgetting that Ford ran in 1976 as the incumbent President, not an "8-year VP." And in both of the cases in the last 50 years where an "8-year VP" was pretty much automatically given the nomination, it was for the election where they ran for President while serving as the sitting VP.

That would have applied to Biden in 2016, but this is four years later. If anything, a rational voter would certainly ask himself: If this guy was presidential material, then why didn't he run in 2016 before he began losing his dentures and babbling like a senile idiot?

"And smarts is something Bloomberg has in excess."

Bloomberg is the dumbest cow in the Yankee herd.

Terminal was a cash cow and Thomas/Reuters should have ripped it off note-for-note, and would have if it wasn't for timid management.

You know how Bloomberg snagged Grauer? Their girls rode together in saddlebred competitions; and it still took Mike a year to reel him in. Ho ho ho.

The only reason Doomberg stayed private instead of IPO is he doesn't trust a single ****ing human being other than himself, and if you don't think that isn't going to be exposed in his first 'rally', I mean, who do you actually think is going to be there? "Whheeee, I love whathisname Napoleon. Wooooo..."

Someone with the MSM radio actually tried to parse this bullshit today - 'Trump came down the stairs and said "I'm in this to win", and my colleague says Bloomberg is in this to win too.'

WOW.

Nothing.

I said "both of the cases in the last 50 years" ... which excludes Richard Nixon in BOTH 1960 and 1968.

Donald Trump spoke with Bill Clinton weeks before kicking off presidential campaign: report

NEW YORK DAILY NEWS | Aug 06, 2015


Donald Trump (second from left) and former President Bill Clinton (right) shared a phone call weeks before Trump kicked off a presidential campaign, reports The Washington Post. Also pictured are former New York City Mayors Rudy Giuliani and little Michael Bloomberg while at Trump National Golf Club in 2008. (ROBERT SABO/NEW YORK DAILY NEWS)

Just before Donald Trump launched his bid for the Oval Office, he got on the phone with a man who knows plenty about the job — former President Bill Clinton.

The Republican real estate mogul shared a private phone conversation with Clinton — husband of the 2016 Democratic front-runner — in late May, and went on to kick off his campaign in mid-June, The Washington Post reported Wednesday.

The report, citing four Trump allies and a Clinton associate, said the former President urged Trump to take on a larger role in the Republican Party and offered his views on politics.
