Michael Bloomberg AKA the Littlest Statist spent lots of money to defeat the pro gun right Sheriff David Clarke with hilarious results
As we previously reported, outside interests, including former NeYork City Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun super PAC, donated hundreds of thousands of dollars in an effort to unseat Sheriff David Clarke Jr, an outspoken Second Amendment supporter.
However, those efforts proved to be in vain as Clarke won the Democratic primary for sheriff handily.
According to JSOnline.com,
Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. edged Milwaukee police Lt. Chris Moews early Wednesday in a Democratic primary race that drew national attention and more than $600,000 in outside spending.
With all but 6,000 city of Milwaukee absentee ballots counted, Clarke led by more than 4,700 votes. Moews would need nearly 5,400 of those absentee ballots to fall his way, which experts quickly dismissed as impossible.
Bloomberg, gave this statement
Mayor Nanny, AKA the littlest Statist showed his disdain for those in Colorado who threw out two Leftist politicians in an interview with Rolling Stone recently
In an interview with Rolling Stone, titled “Michael Bloomberg Isn’t Afraid of the NRA,” Bloomberg discussed last September’s recall of three Democratic state senators backed by his pro-gun control group, Mayors Against Illegal Guns.
“In Colorado, we got a law passed. The NRA went after two or three state senators in a part of Colorado where I don’t think there’s roads,” said Bloomberg in the interview which is set to be published Monday. It was accidentally posted at the magazine’s website Wednesday, but was taken down.
“It’s as far rural as you can get,” he continued. “And, yes, they lost recall elections. I’m sorry for that. We tried to help ‘em. But the bottom line is, the law is on the books, and being enforced. You can get depressed about the progress, but on the other hand, you’re saving a lot of lives.”
These laws are saving a lot of lives? Where is the proof of that? We do know that the vast majority of Colorado sheriffs are against these laws. We know the majority of the people in that part of Colorado recalled those senators, and we know that Colorado governor Hikenlooper did not even read the bill yet still signed it into law WITHOUT listening to any dissenting voices. Those facts we know. Maybe this is why Bloomberg the Statist is so upset. The PEOPLE, threw out politicians who refused to listen to them. And if there is anything that Bloomberg despises, it is people taking charge of their own decisions. Bloomberg thinks everyone must bow and scrape while in his presence. What the people of Colorado did last September was to give Bloomberg and his fellow Statists a certain finger, which is ALL people like Bloomberg should ever get in a free country.
Michael Bloomberg is finding out that no one likes a self-important asshole
If Bloomberg has revealed anything over the past few years, it’s that, despite lots of rhetoric about keeping firearms out of the hands of criminals, law-abiding gun owners are the true intended targets of his campaigns.
It’s for that reason that more than 160 mayors, according to a Washington Examiner report, deserted Mayors Against Illegal Guns — a 15% drop in mayor-members — after they realized they were misled.
Mayor after mayor, the accounts were the same.
Rockford, Ill., Mayor Larry Morrissey: “The reason why I joined the group in the first place is because I took the name for what it said: against ‘illegal’ guns. The focus should not be against law-abiding citizens. We should be focusing our enforcement on folks who have no right to carry a gun, concealed or otherwise.”
Poughkeepsie, N.Y. Mayor John Tkazyik: “It did not take long to realize that MAIG’s agenda was much more than ridding felons of illegal guns . . . MAIG intended to promote confiscation of guns from law-abiding citizens.”
Sioux City, Ia., Mayor Bob Scott: “They’re not just against illegal guns, they’re against all guns.”
Danbury, Ct., Mayor Mark Boughton: “I joined because I believe enforcement of existing gun laws is preferable to creating new gun laws. It is clear in recent months, however, that Bloomberg’s mission has changed from law enforcement to simply increasing gun regulations.”
Those assertions are undeniable. Bloomberg has pressured municipalities all over the country to ban assault weapons and “high-capacity magazines” (even though assault weapons account for only 2% of nation-wide gun crime); he has suggested police officers strike until lawmakers meet his demands (a more reckless and unsafe proposal I’ve never heard); and he’s targeted the free speech of law-abiding citizens by insisting Facebook censor gun-themed fan pages.
Oh Bloomberg, he just does not quit does he? No matter how often he fails, no matter how wrong he is, he just keeps writing checks
Bloomberg, bless his heart, seems convinced that the real problem is his marketing, and so he’s sinking $50 million dollars to launch yet another citizen control group, Everytown for Gun Safety.
In his first major political investment since leaving office, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced plans to build a nationwide network aimed at curbing gun violence and battling the National Rifle Association, according to published reports.
Bloomberg told the New York Times that he is planning to spend $50 million this year to establish the grassroots gun control lobbying group, called Everytown for Gun Safety.
The new organization will encompass two other Bloomberg-funded gun control groups – Mayors Against Illegal Guns and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America – and will first take aim at expanding background checks for gun buyers both at the state and national levels, according to the Times.
Everytown for Gun Safety will borrow from some of the NRA’s field operation tactics to grow influence, targeting mothers and other women that might be swayed on gun issues. The group has already targeted 15 states across the country with varying views on gun control, with the goal of recruiting 1 million new supporters.
Bloomberg’s Achilles heel is that he thinks that a) authoritarianism is the solution for every problem, and b) that throwing more money at the issue is how to make authoritarianism palatable. What he doesn’t seem to be able to grasp despite his considerable business success is that many and perhaps most Americans aren’t driven primarily by money, but by a love of liberty and individual sovereignty.
I would argue that Bloomberg’s weakness is his insatiable thirst for power over the lives of others. He cannot stand to be told no, or to have anyone differ from him. He knows best for you, and damn you if you dare disagree. Bloomberg despises freedom, and individualism because he is a Statist. Therefore he will spend any amount of money, and tell as many lies, and intimidate in any way he can to dictate your choices to you! He is a dangerous man, never forget that. We must never underestimate his fanatical hunger for power. If given his way, he would dictate what we eat, drink, how we raise our children, and completely strip away any right to self-defense.
There is just no quenching the Neo-Marxist’s thirst for absolute power
Now it’s time for San Francisco to take its turn in the sugary beverage battle.
Supervisor Scott Wiener plans this week to introduce a ballot measure that would set a tax on sugary beverages. The proceeds would fund health, nutrition and activity programs for city youth.
Wiener’s proposal would levy a tax of 24 cents on each can of soda sold in the city, where fast-food restaurants are already prohibited from handing out free toys in kids’ meals high in fat, salt and sugar.
Similar tax measures were defeated last year across the bay in Richmond and in the Los Angeles County town of El Monte, after the beverage industry spent millions of dollars to kill the proposals.
And New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg‘s attempt to ban the sale of sugary beverages larger than 16 ounces has been halted by the courts.
Note the part highlighted in red by me. What that should read is the proceeds will be wasted and will line the pockets of fat cat politicians and their flunkies.
What a control freak.
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s crusade to rid the City of all things unhealthy has taken aim at various fattening foods and harmful products like cigarettes and trans fats. He even once tried – and failed – to ban large containers of soda within New York’s five boroughs.
But Bloomberg’s now gone a step further – not only does hizzonor not want you to smoke cigarettes, he doesn’t want you smoke fake cigarettes, either.
Recently leaked drafts of three tobacco-related bills that are expected to be introduced into the City Council indicate that Bloomberg’s planning to regulate e-cigs into extinction.
Basically, I would call Bloomberg a fanatic. Some people should never be in a position of power, he is one.
