Michael Bloomberg will not run for president in 2020



Michael Bloomberg will not run for president in 2020, the billionaire businessman wrote in a statement posted online on Tuesday, ending months of speculation about the political future of one of the Democratic Party's top donors.

CNN focus group rejects Biden



A CNN focus group comprised of Democratic voters has rejected former Vice President Joe Biden as their presidential nominee.
The focus group's dismissal of Biden is notable since the former vice president, who is expected to join the Democratic primary soon, has been leading a number of public opinion polls and is seen as the potential front-runner.
The Democrats gathered by CNN, however, said they weren't interested in Biden. Some said they wanted a candidate who was further to the left.
“I think we need a bold, strong leadership, and you’ll find that in the progressives," Democratic voter Carol Evans said.

Uncle Joe never had any chance. I want him to run nonetheless so that he can learn for one more time that no one wants average Joe to be POTUS.

Donald Trump knows very well that the only candidate he can beat in a general election is Hillary Clinton or someone similar like her; ie Crooked Kamala.

Quote:
“‘(Crooked) Hillary Clinton confirms she will not run in 2020, rules out a third bid for White House.’ Aw-shucks, does that mean I won’t get to run against her again? She will be sorely missed!” the president tweeted.
https://www.politico.com/story/2019/...ection-1205505

It is not that Democrats do not understand this fact either. However, the establishment democrats would rather lose to Trump one more time than hand over the party to grassroot supporters. It is thus no surprise that UNPRECEDENTED smear job has started against Bernie Sanders, and expectedly, the smear campaign is led by none other than SORE LOSER Hillary Clinton and her minions. They are very vicious because they know that they will have NO JOB in a Bernie Sanders administration. Be it Bangladesh or America, much of politics is about halua ruti.

When Hillary Clinton says I am not going away, it means she will do every thing to sabotage her opponents. In her 2016 concession speech she said Trump deserved a fair chance to govern, but her top surrogates simultaneously concocted FAKE Russia COLLUSION theory to take down Trump presidency. This attempt has failed spectacularly and Trump will soon be vindicated by Mueller.

Unable to find any credible to substance to attack Bernie on, Hillary camp is again resorting to red scaring to dismiss Bernie's 2020 run:

Quote:
When Sanders pulled in $1 million in the first three-and-a-half hours of his campaign, Adam Parkhomenko, the former director of grassroots engagement for the 2016 Clinton campaign, tweeted, “Only half were named Vladimir.”
Another Clinton aide is paddling party unity theory - notice their dismissive tone. They are already assuming Bernie will lose. But you know what? This same Hillary camp said PUMA in 2008 after they lost to Obama. PUMA = Party Unity, My @$$. And 25% of Hillary supporters voted for McCain. But Obama won because he had grass root popularity.

Quote:
Brock said Sanders would be hard-pressed to unite the different wings of the Democratic Party, and his ability to raise vast sums of money through small donations could ultimately result in him staying in the race past the point when he can win, which “is not necessarily good for the eventual nominee and therefore could be helpful for” President Trump.
Another aide said:

Quote:
“I would say — and for all I know, the Sanders people might take this as a compliment — among a lot of the major donors in the party, there’s concern that he could emerge,” said David Brock, a longtime Clinton ally who founded a pro-Clinton super PAC in the 2016 campaign and later authored a public apology to Sanders for some of his bare-knuckled criticisms during the primary.
Sanders does not need big donor money, as one Sanders advisor fired back:

Quote:
“It is not a secret that people who would hang out with David Brock would be putting their class interests ahead of the party and the country,” he said. “We have got to nominate somebody who is going to energize and excite the grassroots, not a handful of billionaires.”
https://www.politico.com/story/2019/...n-2020-1203218

2020 is going to be one spectacular show between establishment vs grassroot. Let's see where the free world goes.

Yes Hilary is not going to run 2020, but she will try her best to be relevant in the primary, she will not miss any opportunity to screw up Sanders (if she gets one). She is really very vindictive person. I really don't understand why some democrats still loves her.She always blames others for he own failure, try to play victim game.

Does anyone remember how Trump insulted Mitt Romney during his 2016 campaign? Trump accused Romney of dropping to his knees and begging Trump for his money and endorsement in 2012. Trump also berated Romney saying he choked like 'dog' against Obama.

And in 2017, after Gillibrand tried to take on Trump on charges of sexual abuse, because she wanted to posture herself as the Democratic torchbearer on meToo, Trump minced no words and berated her with a tweet that was clearly very offensive:

Quote:
“Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Charles E. Schumer and someone who would come to my office 'begging' for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump,” the president wrote. “Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!”
Guess what? Corporate Dems are up for similar non-stop hammering from Trump because believe it or not, they have also taken donation from Trump.

Quote:
Kamala Harris received money from Donald Trump as recently as six years ago. Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner hosted a Park Avenue fundraiser for Cory Booker. Kirsten Gillibrand took in Trump family donations three times across a seven-year period — and then gave a similar amount of money to a nonprofit years later after the president mocked her in a tweet.
Quote:
Harris, Booker and Gillibrand — along with Joe Biden, John Kerry and Terry McAuliffe — all share a common bond of receiving Trump family donations, adding another wrinkle to a crowded primary where candidates are expected to trumpet their distance from the president.

Soul stirring speech by Nina Turner.

As a political junkie, I have listened to many Obama speeches, but I have to say this: This speech by Nina will put many Obama speeches to shame. Bernie is definitely in it to win this time. He is well prepared, well organized, and has been superbly professional.

In this speech, Nina replied to Hillary camp's smear job, but of course, subtly.

(not exact quote) "Haters gonna hate, but keep going. If you hear the dogs bark, keep going."

Sanders looks like the scientist from "Back To Future". Only thing left is he need to grow his hair longer.

Andrew Yang deserves a bigger platform. He's the only candidate talking about the threat of automation. And rather than b*tch about companies eliminating jobs, he's completely embraced it and believes it can drive even more innovation. Truth iswe are slowly heading to a point where you either specialize in something or you join the gig economy. Yang's the only one trying to come up with actual solutions for that inevitabilitty with his UBI platform. Unfortunately for America, he will get no exposure whatsoever.

The only other candidate I wanted to get behind is Bloomberg. He's the only candidate that can actually beat Trump. Think about it, none of Trumps bully tactics would work on bloomberg. all of his boasting would feel pathetic when he is sizing up next to Bloomberg.
but theres no way he was going to win over the far left. And not surprisingly he's decided not to run.

None of the other candidates have any chance. Maybe Bernie does, but just like 4 years ago, he will have to battle DNC.

We are looking at 4 more years of Trump.

Bloomberg already said, he is not running for 2020. May be he is afraid of competing against trump.


Yang who? He will never get the nomination unless he change his skin color to much darker and change his last name. The country is not ready for yang, Zhang, or Chen or Zhao or Nguyễn. Actually the country is not ready for Garcis, Lopez or Gonzalez... forget about Syed, Khan, Islam, Mohammad, etc.

Anyone see the Ilhan Omar news...the House passed a resolution condemning anti-semitism and islamophobia by 407 votes to 23. Surprised that 90% of republicans agreed to condemn islamophobia even as they argue that it doesntt exist.

The Democratic party could split like UK's labour over the anti-semitism issue.

I also like Andrew Yang. I am a great proponent of universal basic income, which Andrew Yang has in his agenda. The good news is he has already fulfilled the criteria to get a place in the debate, and he will be seen on stage on the first debate to be held in June/July. But lets be realistic: his chances are VERY LOW to non-existent.

If you thought Bloomberg is the one who could beat Trump, I must say, you are terribly wrong. Like 2016, 2020 election will be another anti-establishment election, and thus corporate democrats like CROOKED Kamala, Choker Booker, Average 5% Joe, Pocahontas or HickenSnoozer, or billionaires like Bloomberg or Schultz stand no chance against Trump.

In 2020, DNC will do its shenanigans on the edges, but DNC will not be Bernie's biggest enemy. His biggest enemy will be media and the Hillary camp. But I believe he will overcome it. "Haters will hate but keep going. If you hear the dogs bark, keep going!" "No more half measures but aim for transcendence!" Bernie machine is strong and professional this time. They will torpedo everything, including the reptilian monster Donald J. TRUMP

This anti-Semitism issue is nothing but HOGWASH. The centrists and neo-liberals in the labour party cannot stand Corbyn and his populist policies, and thus the only option left for them to oppose Corbyn is to scream anti-Semitism (much like the red baiting in USA)

Of course that wasn't the only issue, Brexit is chief among them as well. But you can't downplay the importance of the anti-semitism issue. And its even more important in the US because this is a strongly bipartisan issue. There may not be a more bipartisan thing in American politics as pro-Israelism.

But it appears as though the younger, progressive wing (aka far left) feels as strongly as traditional Democrats and Republicans in their views. An uncomfortable conversation has begun. The question is, are progressives like Bernie Sanders and AOC anomalies of the Trump era (Sanders pre-dates Trump) or is this a new political phenomenon.

Interesting. I looked up Ilhan Omar's comments that triggered backlash leading to the anti-semitism bill. I didn't find anything that can be construed as antisemitic but I'll gladly take a resolution that condemns bigotry, antisemitism and Islamophobia all rolled into one.

Even Andrew Yang knows he's not going to be president. There are typically 2 kinds of fringe candidates: 1) politicians who use the attention to boost their profile and career 2) candidates who hope the eventual nominee will adopt their message, or add them to their admin, or gain enough delegates to influence the party. Yang is the latter. If he can get on stage, debate on national tv, get his message across, that's victory enough.

Bloomberg isn't part of the establishment because he isn't a democrat. In a 2 person race, I'm absolutely sure Bloomberg can beat Trump. He takes away trumps biggest talking points, and more importantly he has money to spend. Just look at how much he spent of NYC mayoral election, you don't think he would go all out for this?

The fact that Bloomberg showed interest is because he likes his chances against Trump. The reasoon he backed out is because the billionaire doesn't like his chances of winning over the democrats.

Any resolution to condemn bigotry is definitely welcome, but with Ilhan Omar incident, Replicants and Democrats are simply playing politics.

Genuine criticism of the right wing government of Israel is not anti-Semitism, just like criticism of Saudi monarchy is not Islamophobia. Everyone understands this, but the Israeli lobbying groups have such a powerful grip over Washington that even smallest possible criticism of Israel is immediately labelled as anti-Semitic.

That being said, Republican politicians like right wing policies, namely, war, arms deal, and imperialism, and that is a reason why they like the Netanyahu government. Do Republicans care about average Jews or anti-Semitic hate crimes? The answer is ABSOLUTELY NOT. Their leader, Donald J. Trump is the chief anti Semitic person in the Republican party and this is well known. When the Charlottesville incident happened, and the white supremacist neo-Nazis openly chanted "Jews will not replace us', and killed a girl by driving a car over her, despite tremendous pressure, Trump refused to condemn the alt-right group, but rather went onto say that there were good people on both sides.

In the recent synagogue shooting, where 11 Jews were killed, not a single Republican, including their leader Trump, made any comment about anti-Semitism, even though the attack was clearly anti-Semitic by nature, perpetrated by a white supremacist.

In both of those incidents, House did not pass any resolution either.

Ilhan Omar definitely did not say anything anti-Semitic, but the key issue here is some Republicans are having a tough time accepting a Moslem woman of color as lawmaker. This is the open secret that no one has blurted out thus far. And now that she criticized the government of Israel, Republicans got a golden opportunity, but WEAK Democrats pounced on her even before Republicans could say anything. Democrats are bought, weak, and pathetic.

And Trump, the great opportunistic, already labelled Democrats as anti-Jewish and anti-Israel party. Democrats had the chance to do the same and put Republicans on the spot rightfully after Charlottesville incident and synagogue shooting, but they didn't. Because Democrats are horrible in playing politics, and that is why they often snatch defeat from the jaws of victory and lose to Republicans (example: Hillary, Gore, Kerry).

Joe Biden's racist past

Quote:
“The new integration plans being offered are really just quota systems to assure a certain number of blacks, Chicanos, or whatever in each school. That, to me, is the most racist concept you can come up with,” he continued. “What it says is, ‘In order for your child with curly black hair, brown eyes, and dark skin to be able to learn anything, he needs to sit next to my blond-haired, blue-eyed son.’ That’s racist! Who the hell do we think we are, that the only way a black man or woman can learn is if they rub shoulders with my white child?”
Link

Only if establishment media could find similar dirt on Bernie, his campaign would have been over by now. But Bernie since his college days has been an unabashed supporter of civil rights. Bernie did not bow down when it was very inconvenient to be a proponent of civil rights for political expedience. Yet, media gives no attention to Bernie's character, and instead pushes Biden as the front runner.

Their day dream will be over soon

It's more unnecessary progressive hogwash really. These things were already prohibited in USA. And the little bit trolling and instigating some folks do is covered by the glorious 1st amendment. People need jobs, not lectures on how they are bad. But progressives have this weird fetish of dragging USA to the past, and equating it with every other third world backwater. Hence more and more people are rightly calling them regressives.

Btw, Yang is the only dem ( since he is running as a dem) who can beat Trump. But the dems will give nomination to the commie loon. Too late though, the masses have caught on to all his phony ways. Will get slaughtered.
