Mr. Bloomberg — a political independent who has championed left-of-center policies on gun control, immigration and the environment — has approved a plan to pour at least $80 million into the 2018 election, with the bulk of that money going to support Democratic congressional candidates, advisers to Mr. Bloomberg said.
Gotta love those loaded statements. “A Political independent”, implying that he’s bi-partisan in any way. No, he’s just a guy who’s willing to fight dirty for political gain. We see this with his anti-gun groups in stacking different shell groups and manipulating the news to give gun control an appearance of main-stream popularity, when in reality Everytown, Moms Demand Action, The Trace, and March For Our Lives all DIRECTLY answer to Bloomberg. Furthermore the Brady Campaign was in dire political straits very recently and suddenly is doing more activities and ventures than they have in years….if I could bet, I’m betting they have a new injection of Cash from Daddy Bloomberg, and I’m sure that’s not without strings attached.
But Bloomberg is from Massachusetts, lives in New York, and has essentially zero ideological ties with the Republican Party…neither does the city of New York as a general rule…so when Bloomy ran for Mayor he did it as a Republican so he could get on the ballot without a primary fight, he later switched to “Independent” so as to dump that icky Republican moniker when it outlived its usefulness.
Further when he was about to be term-limited out, he enacted a one-time exemption from term limits and won a 3rd Term. Note that Bill DeBlasio will be term limited out after 2.
He just wants to win, and doesn’t care how he does it.
Also we need to trumpet this to the heavens every time we hear some person opining about the evils of the NRA “Buying” congress. But the NRA is a public organization that’s beholden to its members, and yet Michael Bloomberg, a single man, beholden only to himself, often outspends the NRA in election money. And we can get bonus points factoring in George Soros we’re looking at HUGE money influence by a small number of private individuals with extreme political ideologies.
Also from the same article:
In a sign of Mr. Bloomberg’s deep alienation from the Republican Party, he has recently told associates that if he were to run for president in 2020, he would likely do so as a Democrat, according to people who have spoken with him directly.
It is unclear whether Mr. Bloomberg, who would be 78 on Election Day in 2020, is actively contemplating another presidential campaign or simply leaving the door open to the possibility.
Alienation with a Republican party he was never aligned with EVER. But also I must add that Bloomy has launched an exploratory committee for President EVERY election season since his 2nd Term as Mayor, and he’s learned every time that the American people as a whole hate his fucking guts, so he has NEVER been a Candidate for President under any party.
