Tucson AZ just became the first city in the US to decide for itself about sanctuary status by means of the ballot. The most Dem lib place in AZ with 50% Hispanic residents and they said "NO". Blow that one out your asses, progs.

Journalists……Hah!!


"Remember when the entire media had a panic attack over Trumps comments on the Access Hollywood tape? While this was going on, those same people knew that Epstein was raping children… and then decided to cover it up."



To paraphrase Instapundit - Think of them (journalists) as democrat operatives with bylines and it all begins to make sense.

Ah, the biggest Rapist of them all.

ABU BAKR AL-BAGHDADI, RAPIST, LED GENOCIDAL 'CALIPHATE,' DIED IN TUNNEL

Like most jihadists, his main motivation was murder and genocide, combined with far-Right religious hatred. Hitler died in a bunker; Baghdadi died in a tunnel.

“For much of his time in the leadership of ISIS, the rapist Baghdadi was a kind of mirage, a shadowy figure who was reportedly killed several times. Yet he survived, escaping again and again as his enemies closed in. Baghdadi was a religious devotee as a young man, and was detained by the Americans after the invasion of Iraq in 2003. Born in central Iraq, he joined an extremist group, was picked up near Falluja, and held at Camp Bucca in 2004. Rukmini Callimachi, the New York Times correspondent who covers ISIS, writes that by the time he was detained, he was not only radicalized but he “began inciting attacks against Shia prisoners, using metal shanks.”

In his hatred of Shi’ites, Baghdadi was channeling a new kind of jihadist zeal. While al-Qaeda and others had launched a war against the West and against local totalitarian and corrupted governments under the banner of “Islam,” the concepts floating around Iraq in 2004 viewed non-Sunnis as sub-humans. They all had to be killed: Christians, Shi’ites, Yazidis and other groups such as Kurds.

This was a truly Nazi-style ideology that saw the world in terms of believers and sub-humans. It was helped along by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the al-Qaeda leader in Iraq who pushed for more targeting of Shi’ites and minorities. Mass attacks in 2004 on Shi’ite shrines were carried out in Karbala, killing hundreds. Baghdadi was paying attention.

As Baghdadi rose to the leadership of what was then called “Islamic State of Iraq,” the Sunni insurgents that had initially been fighting the US had shifted tactics to murdering fellow Iraqis. Massive bombings targeted Yazidi communities in 2007, killing 700 people; more bombings targeted the Kekei religious community, Shebeks, Kurds and Christians. From 2007 to 2009, cities were awash in blood.

ALL THE WHILE, Baghdadi was busy raping women. This was not incidental to his caliphate: It was the main driving force behind it. ISIS was an empire of rape. It sold itself abroad as a brand promising young men from Central Asia to the Caribbean a chance to come to Syria and Iraq, and rape and harm local people. It promised slaves and booty. Baghdadi raped Yazidi girls and his forces acquired the kidnapped American Kayla Mueller.

Finally, the truth is spoken from a Liberal’s lips!

ABC’s “The View” co-host Joy Behar suggested on Monday that Democrats should wait until they are elected into public office before they reveal to the American people their true political intentions.

“They should not tell everything they’re going to do,” Behar said. “Like if you are going to take people’s guns away, wait until you get elected and then take the guns away. Don’t tell them ahead of time.”

Bill Tozer

Change the verbiage from Quid Pro Quo to ‘extortion and bribery’ and the facts of the case still remain the facts of the case.

“Desperate Dems Drop ‘Quid Pro Quo’ Rhetoric, Now It’s ‘Extortion’ And ‘Bribery’

“As the hours of transcripts of witnesses in the Ukraine impeachment inquiry rack up and continue to underwhelm, Democrats and their allies in the media have seized on a new tactic. The old, archaic term “quid pro quo,” is about to go the way of the Dodo. In its place the terms “extortion” and “bribery” will fly about like hot air balloons in California wine country.

“But the rhetorical shift does tell us a story about how many Democrats feel the impeachment effort is going. And it’s not a happy one. I recently described this lightning fast impeachment effort as a Blitzkrieg, which is a military tactic in which an army strikes very hard, very fast, in the hopes of a victory in very short order. The downside of this tactic is that if you slow down, if you start to run out of steam, you become badly exposed. Supply lines become distant and reinforcements hard to rally.”

President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador brushed off criticisms against his government’s position and reiterated Wednesday during his daily media briefing that violence was not the answer or appropriate response to the growing deaths at the hands of cartels."

Meanwhile the problems South of the border have gotten worse, tenfold.

Thanks capt. obvious -

Mark Zaid, one of the attorneys representing the whistleblower at the center of the Democrats' ongoing impeachment inquiry, tweeted conspicuously in January 2017 that a "coup has started" and that "impeachment will follow ultimately."

Then, in July 2017, Zaid remarked, "I predict @CNN will play a key role in @realDonaldTrump not finishing out his full term as president."

Amid a slew of impeachment-related posts, Zaid also assured his Twitter followers that "as one falls, two more will take their place," referring to outgoing Trump administration employees.
The posts, which came shortly after President Trump fired then-acting Attorney General Sally Yates for failing to defend federal laws in court, are likely to fuel Republican concerns that the whistleblower's complaint is tainted with partisanship.

DonB 208pm - As we all have pointed out for the last almost three years, the evidence is overwhelming that the Left, led by Democrats, have had Trump's impeachment on the agenda. Evidence be damned; 'we'll make it up as needed'. And the obvious telltales of conspiracy - yes, it really has been and continues to be a conspiracy under its formal definition - just continue to be discovered under all kinds or rocks, dark places, and in all kinds of slime. Thanks for the latest Mr Bessee.

Re: my own 12:22am above. The winning side scored 71%, which is huge in a diverse city like ours. Since Kali has the initiative, R's should consider putting such a choice on the ballot for the next election; the outcome is very, very likely to be the same anywhere this question is put before the people.

Oddly (not) this huge victory for R's and common sense remains unmentioned by the MSM nearly 24 hours on.

Should also teach me not to post in the middle of the night, particularly not in position 200 where the comment is almost certain to be missed in the rush to punch "newer".

Robert Cross

In the 'trumpler is too stupid; defense' category: Sen. Lindsey Graham put forth the theory that there was no quid pro quo because trumpler's policy toward Ukraine "was incoherent, it depends on who you talk to, they seem to be incapable of forming a quid pro quo, so no I find the whole process to be a sham and I'm not going to legitimize it."

From the old sixties song.... I think it's time we stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down....

“How Did Democrats Get Here?
Democrats’ embrace of thuggery over democracy is not normal.”

“The number of Democrat liberals fighting back against the libel, the hate, and hard leftists taking over over their party is miniscule. Alan Dershowitz comes to mind. I know there are a few others, but I can’t recall them at the moment.

What is going on?

“How evil is the left? This evil,” John Hinderaker wrote after the “appalling” Antifa attacks on Trump supporters and police in “nice” Minnesota. But not a single Democrat politician or media voice finds the violence appalling. Just the opposite—a Democrat legislator participated in the riot, while others, including U.S. Representative Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), tweeted their approval.

“Are there any moderate Democrats left?” Hinderaker asked.

“It’s an important question. Why aren’t Democrats fighting for their own party—and our country—against the hostile takeover by the Left?”

Ah heck, how about some Daily Quotes.

Observations: “This isn’t your grandfather’s Democrat Party. If you look at their party platform, it’s not for working-class Americans. JFK would be an alt-right, neo-Nazi terrorist according to them today.” —Donald Trump Jr.

Food for thought: “The drug cartels are as vicious as ISIS, complete with a similar penchant for rape and mutilation, and they’re very close to duplicating the Islamic State feat of establishing a cross-border ‘caliphate.’ The border in question is the one between the U.S. and Mexico.” —John Hayward

Re: The Leftmedia: “ABC killed the Epstein story. NBC killed the Weinstein story. And these frauds have the audacity to act persecuted when Trump attacks them. They deserve every bit of it. Our media is a disgrace. Enemies of the people indeed.” —Matt Walsh

Political futures: “I’m perfectly happy to say Trump is to blame in various elections. I’ve done so in the past. But the KY GOP taking all statewide offices except Governor, flipping two statewide seats, and getting a state legislative supermajority doesn’t sound like anti-Trump feelings at work.” —Erick Erickson

For the record: “I have two friends that I spoke to over the weekend, both of whom I served in Congress with, neither of whom voted to impeach Bill Clinton, and both of them said they don’t think this rises to the level of impeachment.” —John Kasich

Faux virtue: “We have to move on impeachment because it’s not about politics. It’s not about polling. It’s about principle.” —unprincipled DNC Chairman Tom Perez

Rules for radicals: “They should not tell everything they’re going to do. Like if you are going to take people’s guns away, wait until you get elected and then take the guns away. Don’t tell them ahead of time.” —"The View’s" Joy Behar

Grand delusions: “I don’t think Medicare for All costs a lot of votes… I’m not sure that we lose any votes because of that.” —Rep. John Yarmuth

Non compos mentis: “Homelessness isn’t a crime. It’s a symptom of the greed that is destroying housing in America. When we are in the White House, we will stop the criminalization of homelessness and invest $32 billion over five years to end homelessness once and for all.” —Sen. Bernie Sanders

And last… “Let me get this straight: A story on Jeffrey Epstein’s sick crimes didn’t meet ABC’s journalistic standards but a video of a gun range in Kentucky passed off [as] the Syrian Civil War does?” —Charlie Kirk

The turks are not to be trusted -

“For the Turkish National Intelligence, or Turkish police, [ISIS] are not the real enemy,” said Ahmet Yayla, a former Turkish counter-terrorism police chief and now a fellow at the George Washington University Programme on Extremism. “They do not seriously look for these people, but [President Recep Tayyip] Erdogan is in a position where he is trying to prove that he is fighting against ISIS.

“It is impossible for the Turkish intelligence that Turkey does not know of his presence five to seven kilometres away from the Turkish border,” a former high-ranking Turkish military officer said.

For what it’s worth: Survey sez:

“Or, as Obama put it, these are the people who are “bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them.”

As it turns out, that is the exact opposite of the truth.

Last year, the Social Psychological and Personality Science journal published the findings of a study by University of Southern California researcher David Newman. He analyzed the happiness of 50,000 people from 16 countries over a 40-year period.

What Newman’s team discovered is that conservatives are consistently and significantly happier than their liberal counterparts, and the more conservative a person is, the happier they are. Social conservatives are even happier than just fiscal conservatives, and both are much happier than liberals. Why? Because “there is some unique aspect of political conservatism that provides people with meaning and purpose in life.”

This was true for conservatives “at all reporting periods (global, daily, and momentary).” In other words, conservatives tend to be happy as a general rule, and not just when things are going well for them. That is extremely significant. It means their happiness is related to who they are inside, rather than being a reaction to their circumstances.”

https://patriotpost.us/articles/66595-conservatives-are-happier-more-generous-than-liberals-2019-11-06?

In the U.S., where leftists gravitate toward the Democrat Party and conservatives to the Republican Party, these mindsets and ideologies are clearly manifest in their messaging. As one writer put it, “Republicans … preach the message of limited government, responsibility and self-reliance, while Democrats … preach a message of victimhood and entitlement. … The former is empowering and the latter is debilitating, tending only to provoke feelings of resentment, anger, and helplessness.”

This supports the findings of a Pew Research Center study showing that Republicans maintain higher levels of happiness across all income levels, so it’s not just those evil, rich Republicans swimming in their pools of cash who are happy.

Hostile on every front be the fakenews -

The Times ran a report Monday headlined, "U.S. victims in Mexico massacre were tied to family with a long history of violence," which detailed the community's tragic past with the cartels.

The Los Angeles Times faced criticism over a story on the victims of the Mexico massacre.
The report sparked a firestorm of criticism on social media.

"This story is just terrible. A family is burying small children and now the media is dredging up completely unrelated events, committed by distant relatives, that happened more than a generation ago. Nice," The Dispatch senior editor David French wrote.

Lemme try one more time. On Tues nite, Tucson- the most liberal stronghold in Az and a city 50% Hispanic had a first ever opportunity to decide if it was to become a sanctuary city. 71% said NO. Pretty sure this would be the case anywhere the people were asked their opinion before the declaration was made.

Given Kali has an initiative provision, this should give some R's an idea. The media has been beyond silent on the result- wouldn't want word to get out.

You guys asleep or merely inattentive?

In the 'blah blah blah Clinton Foundation blah blah blah' category : A judge ordered President Donald Trump to pay $2 million to a collection of nonprofit organizations as part of a settlement with the New York state attorney general's office to resolve a civil lawsuit that alleged "persistent" violations of charities law that included unlawful coordination with the 2016 Trump presidential campaign." Filed in June 2018, the lawsuit alleged that the President and his three eldest children -- Don Jr., Ivanka and Eric -- violated federal and state campaign finance laws and abused the Donald J. Trump Foundation's tax-exempt status. According to the lawsuit, the Trumps allowed the foundation to be used "as little more than a checkbook to serve Mr. Trump's business and political interests."

The settlement comes in the wake of an agreement by the foundation in December to dissolve under judicial supervision.

When the Hollywood wokesters get a reminder that they are not the majority -

The booing is fucking us up," The View co-host Whoopi Goldberg told the morning show's audience during a commercial break on Thursday. "It's messing with everyone's mic. You can grimace and all that. All we hear is booing."

Goldberg was trying to restore a sense of calm and civility after a rancorous first interview segment with Donald Trump Jr. and his girlfriend, former Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle. (The Hollywood Reporter attended the show as a member of the audience and took notes.)

Booing is a no-no for members of the show's audience, but the crowd on Thursday alternatively booed and cheered as Trump and Guilfoyle clashed with members of the show's cast, including Joy Behar, Abby Huntsman, Sunny Hostin and Meghan McCain.

From the here and now: Daily Quotes

Observations: “When Trump stepped into office, the GOP had 1,124 state senators and 3,055 state representatives across the country. Today, the GOP has 1,081 state senators and 2,770 state representatives. When Trump took office, Democrats controlled just 14 state legislative chambers across the country; starting next year, Democrats will control 20 state legislative chambers. That’s not as severe as the Democratic party’s drop-off during the Obama era, but the trend is moving in the same direction.” —Jim Geraghty

Walking a fine line: “I suppose we could call the Trump administration’s idea of deterrence without preemptive intervention as either ‘Live and let live’ — or, more macabrely, ‘Live — and let die.’ Either way, the paradox is to maintain critical deterrence against American enemies to prevent a war, but without Pavlovian interventions, and without being baited into optional military action that is antithetical to the national mood that got Trump elected.” —Victor Davis Hanson

Opportunism: “Of course, it has … come out that — I’ll be darned! — the ‘whistleblower’ has ties to prominent Democratic Trump detractors. So now, the same Democrats who previously saw the man as a potential star witness have decided that his usefulness has run its course. Now that he is a potential liability, it has suddenly become unpatriotic to utter his name.” —Andrew McCarthy

For the record: “[The IG report will be] explosive. For people at the highest levels of the FBI and at the highest levels of the Justice Department, it’s going to be devastating. It’s going to ruin careers.” —former federal prosecutor Joe diGenova

Collusion: “#coup has started. First of many steps. #rebellion. #impeachment will follow ultimately.” —"whistleblower" attorney Mark S. Zaid on Jan. 30, 2017

Lessons from the School of Hard Knocks: “We have to hope that whoever ends up nominated can win the Electoral College.” —Hillary Clinton

“Impeachment based on the transcripts is dead on arrival in the Senate,” Graham said. “Impeachment based on the Mueller report is DOA. I don't know where the Democrats are taking this. They are doing it in secret. They are doing it in a fashion that doesn't withstand scrutiny."

"They're about to destroy the nation for no good reason," Graham said on Fox News. "I want Nancy Pelosi to know that Republican senators are not going to impeach this president based on this transcript, so she can stop now before she destroys the country."

The whistleblower statue: learn more in 4 minutes than any pundit will ever tell you.

1) The statute does not apply to the president’s conducting of foreign policy, including his communications with foreign heads of state.

2) The statue does not apply to the President of the United States.

3). The president is not without arguments for why the so-called whistleblower’s identity should be disclosed, and why this person should be called to testify. I’ll address them in a separate column. But for present purposes: The so-called whistleblower is not a statutory whistleblower, and his anonymity is not protected by law; but the Sixth Amendment has nothing to do with impeachment,

Boy, Bobbie has changed his her mannerisms. It’s almost like she is becoming unhinged bit by bit or is a whole different person posting.


Yeah….. more frantic and hysterical daily! A civilized society would shoot a dart in her ass and confine her to a padded cell until late in Trumps next term!

Gavin Nuisance was too busy to attend a funeral of a cop he and LIB helped kill.
https://www.sacbee.com/news/local/crime/article237114524.html
" The indictments came as Sheriff John D’Agostini and other law enforcement leaders severely criticized California’s sanctuary state laws for hindering their investigation. D’Agostini also singled out Gov. Gavin Newsom for failing to attend Ishmael’s funeral Tuesday.

“He had an important meeting with PG&E,” the sheriff said. “One morning out of his busy schedule to respect my deputy and his family I don’t think is too much to ask.” "

WOW!! A letter... Delivered by underlings.... Now that fixes it nicely.

The governor’s office said later that Newsom sent representatives with a letter from him to Ishmael’s family.

“Governor Newsom was represented in Deputy Ishmael’s funeral by his public safety liaison Wayne Bilowit, who presented a letter to the family on behalf of the governor and CHP Commissioner Warren Stanley,” spokeswoman Vicky Waters wrote in an email. "

So can a LIB here say why the VERY pretty Gavin could not reschedule a meeting with PG&E?

You clowns voted for him,, you own him.

fyi, our old fiend, Ken Jones, needs help. He's promised The Union commenters (the McAteer piece) that there's a wealth of instances of my vile, hypocritical comments on this horrid excuse for a blog... but he's not come up with one despite several promises they do exist here, a known target rich environment.

HOSTIN: Do you regret doing that?

TRUMP JR.: I don’t regret doing it. I don’t think I should have to forego my First Amendment rights. It’s out there. I read it in an article. I’ve been reading it for a week. I saw it on the Drudge Report. This is not some secret. But to then say, because it’s Donald Trump Jr., and he’s an outspoken guy —

BEHAR: Listen This isn’t a MAGA rally, okay? Clam it down.

TRUMP JR.: Why was there no outrage when the Drudge Report, which is a major website, probably the largest aggregator of media news in America, he puts it out there a few days ago and crickets. No problem with that.

You know, all the Fakenews reads are summaries of the secret 8-10 hour depositions. Shiftylipps and Dem lawyers write the summaries. Wonder why they don’t include things in the summaries...summaries that the Fakenews run as headlines. Just Dem talking points, roflmao.

“Testimony Transcript Shows William Taylor Never Talked To Trump, Wasn’t Even On July 25 Phone Call”

“A top anti-Trump witness for House Democrats admitted he wasn't on the July 25 phone call and had never even spoken with Trump about Ukraine military aid.....

Zeldin noted that the only reference to Democratic presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden in Taylor’s opening statement stemmed from that convoluted game of telephone. The New York lawmaker hammered Taylor for relying on third-hand information about the state of mind of an elected official to whom he had never spoken.

“So do you have any other source that the president’s goal in making this request was anything other than The New York Times?” Zeldin asked.

“I have not talked to the president,” Taylor said. “I have no other information from what the president was thinking.”

“Under questioning from Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas, Taylor also testified that the Ukrainian government wasn’t aware U.S. military funding had been temporarily suspended until late August, and then only after the information was leaked to the news media, meaning an alleged quid pro quo would have been impossible.

“So, if nobody in the Ukrainian government is aware of a military hold at the time of the Trump-Zelensky call, then, as a matter of law and as a matter of fact, there can be no quid pro quo, based on military aid,” Ratcliffe, a former federal prosecutor, said. “I just want to be real clear that, again, as of July 25th, you have no knowledge of a quid pro quo involving military aid.”

“July 25th is a week after the hold was put on the security assistance,” Taylor testified. “And July 25th, they had a conversation between the two presidents, where it was not discussed.”

“And to your knowledge, nobody in the Ukrainian government was aware of the hold?” Ratcliffe asked.

“That is correct,” Taylor responded.

Taylor also testified that he didn’t see any official readout of the July 25 phone call until it was declassified and released by Trump in late September.

“I did not see any official readout of the call until it was publicly released on September 25th,” he said.“

“Two sources with knowledge of the situation tell me that ABC News executives know who the former employee is but don’t know if that person leaked the footage to Project Veritas, the right-wing activist group, or if they shared it with others who leaked the footage,” Ali wrote. “What ABC News executives do know is that the former employee is now working at CBS News.”

“Ali added that ABC executives informed CBS that the potential leaker was now working at "The Tiffany Network."

“The report sparked widespread outrage that ABC was going after the leaker and attempting to get them fired from CBS, while downplaying the fact that the network killed the Epstein story in the first place.”

WILLIAMS COLLEGE BECLOWNS ITSELF AGAIN

“But now there’s a move afoot by Williams students (I am guessing many of the same ones) to boycott the English Department! In some ways I’m tempted to support this call, because most university English departments these days have degraded themselves by surrendering to postmodern theory and other ideological fads, and have ruined the experience of even bad literature, never mind great literature. You hardly need to call for a boycott, since students are deserting English courses in droves.

But of course, the complaint of the Williams students is that the English Department has not surrendered enough to left-wing ideology. You kinda knew this would be the story. Inside Higher Ed reports:......”

“Scroll through the boycott website linked above at your peril. This may be my favorite sentence:

“Because of our experiences of race, class, and gender in this department, many of us feel conflicted and ashamed about claiming Williams College as our alma mater.”

One obvious idea suggests itself to current students. And you could save a nice chunk of cash. Williams College tuition and room and board this year is $73,000.”

Memo to Bloomberg: Democratic Voters Don’t Want More Candidates

Media mogul, billionaire and former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s late-in-the-game presidential ambitions cannot be counted out. Bloomberg spent over $100 million during his last mayoral bid and has the financial resources to spend exponentially more on a nationwide campaign. He’s never lost a political campaign and is almost certain to be met with oodles of free media coverage if he enters the race.
But it’s not clear what Bloomberg, who decided against a bid earlier in the year but now appears to be preparing for one, has to offer ― beyond money for consultants and television stations in the early states ― that isn’t available in another presidential candidate.
The sprawling Democratic presidential field, which topped 20 candidates at one point, has offered voters four mayors or former mayors, two self-funding businessmen, three New Yorkers, seven senior citizens and, depending on your ideological definitions, as many as 11 moderate Democrats. Though it’s possible voters might welcome all of those things in one convenient package ― especially if that package, again, is able to spend tens of millions of dollars promoting itself ― right now, evidence to back that up is scarce.
Howard Wolfson, a Democratic operative who has long served as a top aide to Bloomberg, laid out on Twitter his boss’s rationale for considering a bid.
Democrats “need to ensure that Trump is defeated ― but Mike is increasingly concerned that the current field of candidates is not well positioned to do that,” Wolfson wrote. “If Mike runs he would offer a new choice to Democrats built on a unique record running America’s biggest city, building a business from scratch and taking on some of America’s toughest challenges as a high-impact philanthropist.”
Wolfson concluded: “Based on his record of accomplishment, leadership and his ability to bring people together to drive change, Mike would be able to take the fight to Trump and win.”
But Democratic voters, at least so far, don’t share those worries about the field. A HuffPost/YouGov poll conducted after the last Democratic presidential debate found that 71% of Democrats and Democratic-leaning voters thought the party had two or more candidates who could defeat Trump. Fifty-three percent thought there were three or more options. A majority said either former Vice President Joe Biden or Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts would be able to beat Trump.
Other polling backs up this finding: An Economist/YouGov poll conducted this week found that 78% of Democrats were happy with their choices, and 22% wanted more candidates. And a Gallup poll conducted in late September found that 75% of Democrats were generally pleased with the party’s field of candidates, and just 21% wished someone else were running. Compare that to a similar poll in 2016, when just 58% said they were happy with the field. Or to one from 1993, when just 44% were happy.
Big-money Democratic donors, on the other hand, might be just as concerned as Bloomberg is. Those donors, broadly, are worried about Biden’s ability to defeat Warren, and about Warren’s ability to defeat the president. (Warren’s treatment of the donor class, which currently ranges from apathy to hostility, doesn’t do much to assuage these worries.)
There is a modicum of evidence that moderate Democrats are more open to a new candidate. The Economist/YouGov poll found satisfaction with the field was uniform across gender, age, income and racial dividing lines. But there was an ever-so-slight ideological gap. Though 85% of liberals were satisfied with the field, only 71% of centrists were.
(This is where it’s worth mentioning Bloomberg might not be the only late entrant: Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson reported Thursday night that former Attorney General Eric Holder was also considering a bid.)
The possibility Bloomberg could further divide moderate voters was part of the reason why the campaigns of Warren and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) welcomed him to the race Thursday night.
“More billionaires seeking more political power surely isn’t the change America needs,” Sanders campaign manager Faiz Shakir said. Warren, who regularly declines to engage in day-to-day spats with the other Democratic candidates, sent out a Twitter missive of her own.

Bloomberg’s biggest initial advantage in the battle for moderate votes over Biden, and even over the well-funded mayor of South Bend, Indiana, Pete Buttigieg, is his wallet. Biden had less than $10 million on hand at the end of the last Federal Election Commission reporting period. Buttigieg had over $23 million, but Bloomberg’s net worth of more than $50 billion (Forbes magazine believes he’s the 8th richest American) means he will easily be able to match any spending by any other candidate in the field.

But money can’t always buy success in a presidential contest. Just ask Tom Steyer, the other billionaire political donor in the race. He’s spent more than $40 million on the race, according to FEC filings. He’s polling at under 5%.

re: Mike 'For the People' Bloomberg

"They say he has beheld the weenies of the field and found them wanting — no, dangerously feeble, limp, insipid, deluded unto a kind of hebephrenia — and now, just maybe, Michael “Mike” Bloomberg will don the old steel breastplate and Kevlar jockstrap, take up the lance, and sally forth in a Lincoln Navigator to slay the Golden Golem of Greatness stalking the land… the last Great Hope of the Boomer Gen! That’s the scuttlebutt, anyway, or maybe more like a fevered dream of the restive elites stewing in their private equity aeries amid all this bothersome talk of wealth confiscation far out in the primary state flyover thickets."

Right now there are political strategists on both sides positively salivating over the #metoo shenanigans in Bloombergs past!

It's like Punchy says...."time for popcorn"!

Walt @ 7:50 Progressive math? Both reason and common sense suggest the result of doubling meter rates will bring in somewhat less than twice the revenue, but these lefties, with a straight face, claim just the opposite? Wow, just wow.

If that's how it works, triple them. A small and not too important thing but for what it tells us about having the 'woke' in charge.
