    Billionaire Michael Bloomberg helped kick off the second anniversary of the Paris climate change accord on Tuesday by announcing a new agreement by 237 firms vowing to support the former New York mayor's push to get companies to disclose climate-related financial data. "Climate change poses both economic risks and opportunities," Bloomberg said in a statement as chairman of the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures. "But right now, companies don’t have the data they need to accurately measure the risks and evaluate the opportunities." He said the lack of climate-related financial data "prevents" the private sector from making investments that...
  • WaPo walks back CNN's reporting on Trump WikiLeaks email

    A September 2016 email sent to senior Trump campaign officials directed them to documents that had already been publicly released by WikiLeaks, per The Washington Post. Initial reporting on the email this morning from CNN said the email was sent on September 4 — WaPo reports that it was actually September 14 — and left it an open question whether the documents had been previously released. Why it matters: WaPo's reporting massively changes the significance of this story, indicating that the sender — a still unknown "Michael J. Erickson" — might have just been trying to alert Trump campaign officials...
  • Apple, Google CEOs Bring Star Power as China Promotes Censorship

    Just posting the title, you can find the full article on the Bloomberg website. However there is one thing I noticed. In the third paragraph it says: "The iPhone maker has most of its products manufactured in the country..." This in an article, about Tim Cook speaking at an event in China, at Wuzhen. The keynote speech. Among other things. The same article also specifically mentioned Wang HuNing, a senior official from China, as calling for even more Chinese monitoring the very same day. In my humble opinion, we (America) really need to bring manufacturing, back to America once again....
  • Why People Hate the Media: Journalists Lash Out at Sanders Asking What They’re Thankful For

    On Monday afternoon, some journalists provided another small nail in the coffin of the media’s credibility when they lost their collective minds on Twitter over White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders asking reporters to share what they’re most thankful for this Thanksgiving week.  Sanders still allowed reporters to ask questions and most responded with thoughtful answers, but a few ignored it (including the Associated Press’s Zeke Miller and Washington Post’s Jenna Johnson). For some journalists on Twitter, they lambasted Sanders for her “bizarre” exercise that one labeled “harmful to a democracy.”  NPR’s Domenico Montanaro was the most offended, showcasing...
  • Michael Bloomberg just made Virginia's governor race a referendum on gun control

    Michael Bloomberg is hoping to ride to the rescue of Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam two weeks ahead of the Virginia governor's race. Everytown for Gun Safety, one the foremost gun control groups in America that is bankrolled by the former New York City mayor, will drop another $400,000 in the election after an earlier $1 million commitment, the Washington Post reports. That makes the race very much a referendum on gun control.

    The Cook County Board finished the job on Wednesday and repealed the controversial pop tax, which means soda drinkers won’t have to pay it come Dec. 1. ... The repeal was a foregone conclusion after the board’s Finance Committee voted 15-1 on Tuesday, signaling the pop tax would be scrapped after just four months.

    In stumping against increased acceptance of concealed carry permits nationwide, gun control advocates tapped in George Zimmerman’s CWL and a $20 BB gun. (Photo: Everytown) Moms Demand Action and Everytown for Gun Safety over the weekend began running a meme showing a Florida state concealed weapon license purportedly owned by George Zimmerman layered over a person with a Marksman air pistol shoved haphazardly into the waistband of their jeans. “Some states have low or no standards for who can carry a concealed weapon in public,” says the text over the ad. “The NRA’s latest pet policy would make the weakest...

    (NEW YORK) — Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said America should “get behind” President Trump because “the public has spoken – whether you like the results or not” during an appearance on ABC’s The View. Bloomberg said that opposing a president just because they are aligned with the opposing party is the wrong approach. He referenced a 2010 interview with the National Journal in which Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said: “The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.” “That’s my country, that’s my kids and grandkids,” Bloomberg...

    Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg (I) says President Trump is likely to win reelection in 2020 because Democrats will be hamstrung by the deep fissures between the liberal and moderate wings of the party. Speaking Tuesday night before Republican Karen Handel claimed victory over Democrat John Ossoff in a special House election in Georgia, Bloomberg stood by his previous statement that Trump has a “55 percent” chance of winning reelection. “The incumbent always has an advantage,” Bloomberg told CNN. “And the Democratic Party is going to be torn apart by the left and the centralists,” he continued. “Now,...

    Michael Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York City, says Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 election to President Trump because "she never got a real message out, whereas Donald had us saying ‘Make America Great Again.'" "Hilary never got a real message out," said Bloomberg, who considered running for president as an independent, in an interview Tuesday night with CNN's Anderson Cooper. "It was don't vote for that guy and the gender issue. Whereas Donald had us saying ‘Make America Great Again,'" said Bloomberg in an interview Tuesday night with CNN's Anderson Cooper.

    IWB ^ | Mark Angelides
    No matter how much those who consider themselves “natural Democrats” dislike the present government, the reality is that many of the people who voted for Hillary did so not because of her or the DNC’s political policies, but because they thought the alternative would be worse. Many saw Bernie as an opportunity to press the reset button on a system of politics that they have grown weary of, but the betrayal (the DNC sabotaging Bernie) has left them with a bitter taste in their mouths. No candidate that the Democrats put forward will have the absolute trust of those who...

    Thirty cities, three states, more than 80 university presidents, and more than 100 companies are part of a growing group intending to uphold the Paris Agreement, the climate-change accord that President Donald Trump on Thursday announced the US would be exiting. The group, called the United States Climate Alliance, is being organized by the billionaire philanthropist Michael Bloomberg. The coalition plans to submit a plan to the United Nations that commits to greenhouse-gas limits set in the Paris Agreement, according to The New York Times. It is negotiating with the UN to form its own National Determined Contribution — a...

    Every morning I wake up before 5am Eastern and switch on the TV to watch the early version of ″Fox & Friends″. Aside from enjoying my breakfast with the lovely Heather Childress, I learn what the ′Big News′ item is for the day ahead. The big topic this morning was a Midnight tweet on Twitter by President Donald Trump. The story is that he allegedly misspelled the word ′coverage′ when he wrote ′covfefe′ instead in a tweet about the negative press.

    Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg thinks there's a "55 percent chance" President Trump will be reelected in 2020. Bloomberg, who politically identifies as independent, told New York Times columnist Frank Bruni that he thought Democrats didn't have an effective message to win the 2016 election and could repeat that mistake in 2020. “Hillary said, ‘Vote for me because I’m a woman and the other guy’s bad,’” Bloomberg said about 2016. He said Democrats are still looking for issues and messages. And he worries that too many Democrats are eager to jump into the 2020 race. “They’ll step on...

    Michael Bloomberg, former mayor of New York City, the eighth-richest person in the United States, and the billionaire behind the rabidly anti-gun group Everytown for Gun Safety, was asked on CBS’ “60 Minutes” why he didn’t run for president of the United States. His answer was revealing. “If I thought we could win, or had a reasonable chance, I would have [run for president],” he said. “It would be totally unlikely, very unlikely that an independent could win. And in my case, I was mayor for a long time. People know where I stand. I couldn’t pretend to be something...
  • Soda tax goes flat in Santa Fe (NM - Elites rebuffed)

    The Albuquerque Journal ^ | May 2, 2017 | T.S. Last
    SANTA FE – A national trend in favor of so-called “soda tax” initiatives took a hit Tuesday when Santa Fe voters soundly rejected a proposed 2-cents-per-ounce tax on the distributors of sugar-sweetened beverages in a special election unlike anything New Mexico’s capital city has seen before. Santa Fe’s 2-cents-per-ounce proposal would have matched Boulder, Colo., as the highest in the nation and was aimed at financing an effort to make 1,000 pre-kindergarten education slots available to Santa Fe children for free or at affordable rates. The campaign drew intense interest locally and money poured in from outside the state, with...

    Voters in New Mexico’s capital city rejected a tax increase on sweetened beverages Tuesday, handing a rare victory to the soft-drink industry after a string of recent defeats. The tax failed with 11,533 votes against and only 8,382 votes in favor, the Santa Fe City Clerk’s Office announced. The special election came after similar taxes were adopted last year in cities from Philadelphia to San Francisco. Outside groups and political committees spent more than $3 million on the special election in Santa Fe, with opponents led by the soft-drink industry and supporters by billionaire Michael Bloomberg, a staunch supporter of...
