  • Trump Campaign Banishes Bloomberg News – But Why Not CNN?

    Good move. Now do CNN and the New York Times and the Washington Post and… – Trump Campaign Chairman Brad Parscale announced on Monday that the campaign would no longer be offering press credentials to anyone representing Bloomberg News. That inevitable move – labeled as “surprising” by many corrupt media outlets – comes after an internal memo written by Bloomberg News editor-in-chief John Micklethwait announced that the outlet would continue its “tradition of not investigating Mike (and his family and foundation) and we will extend the same policy to his rivals in the Democratic primaries.” So, Bloomberg News desperately wants...
  • The Trump campaign denied press credentials to Bloomberg News; it has a point

    The Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee announced Monday that Bloomberg News reporters will no longer be given press credentials for 2020 events and rallies. I cannot say I disagree with the decision. After all, Bloomberg News did announce last week that it would extend its policy of not covering its founder, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, to his 2020 Democratic primary opponents, all while still investigating the Trump White House. If Bloomberg News will not treat itself like a legitimate and even-handed news organization, then why should Republicans and the Trump campaign? Of course, this is...

    We now have a preview of the way Michael Bloomberg plans to buy the Democrats' nomination and the presidency.  A big part of his massive spending program will be focused on trashing President Donald Trump while touting himself as a self-made man.  The budget for this ad alone is at a saturation level in targeted markets. Advertising Analytics confirmed with The Hill on Saturday that Bloomberg's multimillion-dollar ad campaign would air in 98 local markets and on some national cable channels in the most expensive ad purchase from any candidate in one week of political advertising. The former mayor's ad filmed by Kantar/CMAG is expected...

    The best campaign money can buy is already off to a shaky start. A fake 2020 campaign logo and slogan for Michael Bloomberg was spreading like wildfire Saturday. The logo emerged on the website Bloomberg2020.org — which is unaffiliated with the campaign. “No affiliation at all. We will be asking them to make clear they are completely unaffiliated,” longtime Bloomberg confidante Howard Wolfson said in one of more than a half-dozen tweets correcting the record to big-name accounts sharing the fake website. It is unclear who is behind the logo or website, which is also selling Bloomberg 2020 campaign shirts...

    Disparaging comments. Demeaning jokes. As the mogul reportedly considers a 2020 presidential run, it remains an open question whether his long-alleged history of undermining women will affect his chances. If you find yourself seeking, in these turbulent times, evidence of steadiness among the chaos—proof that even as the seas rise and the winds whip and the world that was gives way to the world that will be, some things will remain the same—here is a fact that seems always to be true: Mike Bloomberg is considering a run for president. The newest version of the old truth comes from an...

    Mike Bloomberg, the billionaire former mayor of New York, is preparing to enter the Democratic presidential primary, according to NBC News, which cited a Bloomberg advisor. The move didn’t necessarily mean Bloomberg was announcing a campaign, a source close to Bloomberg told NBC News. Rather, this source said, he’s doing this to keep his options open. Bloomberg is “troubled” by what he has seen in the Democratic primary, the source added. “He’s still not sure,” a source told CNBC. This source also said these are “unprecedented times” and that Bloomberg is concerned about what he’s seeing both from Democrats and...

    Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg says that if he runs for president, he’ll pay for it himself, defending candidates who use personal riches to bankroll campaigns. Bloomberg’s comments to reporters in Texas on Friday follow a jab from another top 2020 contender. Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren recently decried the Democratic presidential nomination becoming “one more plaything that billionaires can buy.”

    Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Friday that his campaign will be self-funded if he runs for president in 2020. "I ran three times. I used only my own money so I didn't have to ask anybody what they wanted in return for a contribution,"Bloomberg told reporters in Texas, according to Chron. "And, if I ran again, I would do the same thing. I think not having to adjust what you say and what you work on based on who financed your campaign is one of the things that the public really likes." "I understand not everybody can...

    No matter how politically fractured the nation may seem, I believe that liberty-loving citizens of all ideologies can unite and agree: Billionaire Nanny Michael Bloomberg -- the soda-taxing, gun-grabbing, snack-attacking control freak -- should keep his nose out of our lives and out of the 2020 presidential race. On the eve of the midterms, the former New York City mayor dumped $5 million into a self-serving ad bashing President Donald Trump, promoting Democrats, decrying border enforcement and preaching about a "higher purpose" in Washington. Bloomberg has cast himself as the great healer of the political divide, calling for us to...

Today, I have re-registered as a Democrat – I had been a member for most of my life – because we need Democrats to provide the checks and balance our nation so badly needs.
