    By now, you really would have thought Michael Bloomberg would have learned his lesson. The out-of-touch New York City mayor has lately made it his business to be in everyone else's business - whether that means trying to decide for New York residents what they are allowed to eat or drink, or trying to tell people from other states what to think of their elected officials. More often than not, however, Mayor Bloomberg's overreaches have been repelled. The courts struck down Bloomberg's ban on large sodas. Notable Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer, from Bloomberg's home state, is on the record as...
  • Weakened arsenal: More than 50 original mayors have quit Bloomberg's anti-gun group

    Mayor Bloomberg’s anti-gun club suddenly isn’t such a hot ticket. His gun-control group Mayors Against Illegal Guns has lost more than 50 of its original mayoral members in the last few months, as disenchanted mayors quit the coalition or leave office. Bloomberg, who pumped millions of dollars of his personal fortune into the group to make it one of the loudest voices in the gun-control debate, now is struggling to replace ex-members. “The original focus, I thought, was going to be . . . on better enforcement of our existing laws, and if anything, we have talked about not getting...

    New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s gun control group Mayors Against Illegal Guns is finding it hard to keep its membership up, thanks to dozens of resignations and lost elections over the last few months. . . . . . According to an old version of its member list, saved on a blog dated back to late February, more than 50 mayors who were then listed on MAIG’s website are no longer there.

    The name “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” is well known as Mike Bloomberg’s gun-control arm, which he spends his personal fortune through on ads. Yet the group’s website is registered to, and handled by, official city government servers and staffers. Domain names for MAIG were registered in 2006 by the New York City Department of Information and Technology, and have remained on official city web servers ever since.Yet the group’s “action fund,” through which he has piped at least $14 million of his own money in ads over gun control this year alone, is registered as a 501c4, a nonprofit “social...

As you may have heard, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's "Mayors Against Illegal Guns" (MAIG) recently began a 100-city bus tour to push for federal gun bans. Although Bloomberg keeps the bus schedule secret to avoid actually hearing what people want, we have learned that the MAIG bus tour will hit Raleigh at 9:00 AM on Saturday. It's time to show...
  • Bloomberg's money loses to grassroots citizen activists on gun control in Nevada

    06/15/2013 4:26:42 PM PDT · by forty_years · 10 replies ^ | June 15, 2013 | netWMD Staff
    Michael Bloomberg, mayor of New York City, billionaire, desiring to rewrite the constitution, and countrywide buttinski suffered a major "gun control" loss on Thursday in Nevada. He and his pet group, Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG), "spent hundreds of thousands of dollars" to buy passage of the Nevada state legislature's bill SB 221, another dangerous piece of gun control legislation dressed up to look palatable by applying the innocuous-sounding "background check" label to it. Bloomberg lost, and lost big-time, not because of a paid opposition wading in money, but because of a viral grass-roots effort organized by average Americans provided...

    It began with an ad buy targeted at black voters in Arkansas, to suppress the minority vote for Sen. Mark Pryor, D-Ark. But New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is not satisfied with just causing a little bit of trouble in his quest to punish Democrats who vote against gun control. The mayor — who wants people to make the right choice and isn’t afraid to compel them — is aiming to become a one-man Tea Party for the Left...

    My name -- No More Names: The Drive to Reduce Gun Violence Friday marks six months since the mass shooting in Newtown, CT. It also marks six months of inaction from Congress. That's why we're launching an ambitious, nationwide bus tour that will bring survivors and supporters directly to members of Congress across the country. No More Names: The Drive to Reduce Gun Violence will visit 25 states in 100 days. We will stand in front of the local offices of members of Congress and read the names of Americans murdered with guns since Newtown, who number more than 5,000...
  • Michael Bloomberg: Gay marriage: it's only fair-Backed same-sex weddings in NY for sake of democracy

    'As a mayor, I know that legalising same-sex marriage has sharpened New York City’s competitive edge, because it has made us an even more attractive place to live and work.' Across Europe and the US support for same-sex marriage is growing, and for a simple reason: it is consistent with democracy's promise of equal rights for all people. As long as government is in the business of handing out marriage licences, all couples – regardless of their sexual orientation – deserve equal status in the eyes of the law. I believe that it is only a question of when –...

    CARSON CITY, Nev. — John W. Griffin is a fast-talking, whiskey-loving, fifth-generation Nevadan who spends his days as a lobbyist courting lawmakers in Stetsons. He advocates for luxury casinos, once brokered a dispute between a brothel and a nightclub, and has helped feuding families resolve tussles over cattle crossings. Now he is representing the ultimate city slicker, Michael R. Bloomberg, the mayor of New York, who, undaunted by defeat in Congress, is taking his campaign for stricter gun laws to the nation’s state capitals, including here, where a bill to expand the use of criminal background checks is before the...

    Mayors Against Illegal Guns, the group co-founded by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, has begun to follow through on its threat to make an example of Sen. Mark Pryor, D-Ark., for his vote against gun control. This ad expresses “disappointment” with Pryor for voting against a provision that would have expanded the use of NICS background checks.

    The Progressive believes in precisely two things: his own magnificence and the constructive power of brute force. In combination, they lead him naturally from the role of pestiferous busybody to brutal dictator. Where the productive man dreams of the things he might create if only left alone by his fellows, the Progressive dreams of the world he could create if only the lives and property of his fellows were at his disposal. The roots of his pathology lie in that oldest and most destructive of all human vices, the desire for the power to rule over other men. As...

    Breitbart's Big Government ^ | April 23, 2013 | Ben Shapiro
    On Monday, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced that the Constitution would have to be reinterpreted in order to curtail civil liberties to prevent terrorism. Bloomberg likened such reinterpretation to the Supreme Court’s interpretation of the Second Amendment, which he says allowed for greater gun control to preserve public safety. At a press conference, Bloomberg stated, “The people who are worried about privacy have a legitimate worry. But we live in a complex world where you’re going to have to have a level of security greater than you did back in the olden days, if you will. And our...

    AAfter losing two back-to-back national elections, there is nearly complete disarray in the party. Rejected twice after running national campaigns focused on the issue which voters said they cared most about – an issue which, in the abstract, should have been in their wheelhouse – political and opinion leaders are recommending sweeping reforms to ensure past mistakes will never be made again. This is the Republican Party in 2013, but it was also the Democratic Party of 40 years ago. In the early 1970s, after losing two straight presidential elections, Democrats pursued a series of reforms dedicated to reducing the...

    Sunday on “Meet the Press”, Wayne LaPierre handed Mayor Bloomberg his head and it was a highlight to behold let me tell you. This clown of clowns went on the typical ego maniac diatribe about gun control for everyone. For starters, while David Gregory first interviewed Mayor Bloomberg, he replayed a previous tape of Bloomberg saying: “The NRA’s power is so vastly overrated. The public, when you do polls, they want this carnage to stop. If 20 small kids aren’t enough to stop it then, I don’t know what is.” After the clip, Bloomy with his fake smile says he’s...

    New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said on Sunday: Sometimes government does know best. And in those cases, Americans should just cede their rights. “I do think there are certain times we should infringe on your freedom,” Mr. Bloomberg said, during an appearance on NBC. He made the statement during discussion of his soda ban — just shot down by the courts — and insistence that his fight to control sugary drink portion sizes in the city would go forth.

    Should religious institutions be able to rent public property just like any other community group? If you’re New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, the answer is a resounding no, a decision that has angered local communities and is poised to kick out dozens churches from meeting in New York City public schools even though other groups, including labor unions, are granted full access. “Houses of worship throughout the city consider this policy to be nothing short of discrimination, and we will make that known,” said Fernando Cabrera, a Democratic city councilman representing the Bronx. “Evicting [churches] hurts people and neighborhoods...
