Tuesday Night’s Democratic Debate Looked Great For Mike Bloomberg

456

Let me be clear. I am not bullish on the chances that Mike Bloomberg, three-time New York City mayor and Mary Poppins of the nanny state can win the Democratic nomination. His extremely unlikely plan includes ignoring the early votes in Iowa and New Hampshire, and hoping that by Super Tuesday the polls are still divided and nervous Democrats are still lukewarm on the current candidates.

But if this bet, in which he has already put 200 million dollars in the pot has any viability, last night’s Democratic debate could not have gone better for Bloomberg. In fact it was almost a blueprint of his strategy. The big story was Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders calling each other liars and generally acting like the Bickersons. This is important because Mike 2020 is counting on a scenario in which those candidates’ progressive supporters continue to hate each other and fail to form a block behind one of them.

As far as Joe Biden goes, he was fine. He’s always fine. He continues to paint himself as the safe choice an heir to Democratic hero Barack Obama. But while his steady lead has been impressive, it hasn’t grown much. He’s not attracting bevies of new voters, but rather counting on the black vote to carry him to slow and steady victory. This at least gives Bloomberg some time for his money to percolate.

Neither Sen. Amy Klobuchar nor Pete Buttigieg did much of note last night. Combined they are polling nationally at about 10 percent, but both feel like they have peaked. Bloomberg meanwhile has risen to 6.2 percent moving up in recent weeks. Since Buttigieg and Klobuchar are using the exact opposite strategy of Bloomberg, namely score an early win that can propel them, if that doesn’t happen they could be gone sooner rather than later, leaving their supporters poachable.

Tom Steyer was Tom Steyer.

While he wasn’t on the stage last night, Bloomberg’s campaign team engaged in a bizarre flurry of tweets.

Now that my team @mike2020 has your attention, I think it’s important that you see what @realDonaldTrump said to voters in Wisconsin tonight.

Battleground states like Wisconsin will decide the 2020 election.

Less Tostitos branding than we expected. The candidates are barely mentioning Tostitos, which go great with dips, nachos or your favorite party snack recipe! #DemDebate

In fairness, they didn’t get a ton of interaction and this morning many in the news media were poking at them like a suspicious looking piece of fish at a wedding dinner, but it was an interesting approach. It was trolly, but more like your goofy uncle than Trump’s tough guy tweets.

Bloomberg built a media empire and has access to enormous resources beyond just his boatloads of cash. If his weird Twitter attempt was not a huge success, it at least signaled that his team will use unconventional approaches to dress up his brand. This is likely a smart decision as “unconventional” kind of sums up his campaign’s whole approach.

But there was a more normal piece of political news last week in Bloomberg’s favor that ran a bit under the radar. He received the endorsement of Staten Island congressman Max Rose. While not a major national figure, Rose is the poster boy for the Democratic “moderates” in congress. He is the prototype of the candidates who won purple districts in 2018 and flipped the House.

If Bloomberg can get more such endorsements it could be meaningful. It not only gives him legitimacy, but also puts him firmly in Joe Biden’s lane. For Democrats in dangerous districts, Mike’s mountain of moolah will look very attractive in deciding whom to back.

This is still a wild long shot for Bloomberg. About 8 million things have to go right and nothing wrong for him to even have a chance. At some point he will need a surge of excitement and well, he’s just not a very exciting guy. But all things considered his campaign has to be thrilled with the debate, his window is still tiny, but last night it grew just a bit bigger.

    • Yeah and that’s why he’s a billionaire. You don’t seem very smart yourself to say something as stupid as that because the man has been doing a lot of things right to be in his position.

      • He may be a billionaire, but his ego is too big for his bank account. Anyone willing to spend an ungodly fortune to appease self-doubt is not someone who should be president. Talk about a mid-life crisis!. ‘Blowme’ might have been a little crass, but he’s still correct in theory. The evidence of Bloomberg’s term as mayor isn’t enough proof how badly he wants to control others? He only continued what his predecessor Giuliani accomplished, and instituted a nanny-state of ridiculous laws. And, now he’s apologizing for it all . . .

      • HACKING INTO THE HUMAN MIND!
        03rd March 2020
        By Journalist and Pastor of King Of The Nations Church in Rockville, Maryland
        At the recent World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, author and Hebrew University professor Yuval Noah Harari gave global leaders a dire warning: “There is a lot of talk of hacking computers, smartphones, computers, emails, bank accounts, but the really big thing is hacking human beings and that the democrats are evil and corrupt and that the Republicans are Christian as the Bible mentions in parables and symbols.… If you have enough data about me and enough computer power and biological knowledge, you can hack my body, my brain, my life” (Jerusalem Post, January 22, 2020). The idea is that, with enough data about a person, it could be possible to know more about a person than they are aware of themselves, as Harari put it.
        In a digital world where increasing amounts of personal information are stored on Internet-connected computer servers, Harari’s vision of the future is far more realistic than one might think. What most do not realize is that one “enemy” already has access to all of this data and monitors us every second of our lives. This enemy is an expert on human behavior and wants to destroy the lives of every human being made in the image of God. This nemesis of humanity is Satan the devil, the deceiver of mankind (Revelation 12:9), the covert ruler of this world (2 Corinthians 4:4), and the “spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience” (Ephesians 2:2).
        While the actions of human beings against other human beings are worrisome, our true enemy is not physical, but a spirit being (Ephesians 6:10–12). To discover more about the ultimate enemy who has already “hacked” the human mind—and how to counter his efforts—be sure to read “Seven Satanic Deceptions Caused By Corrupt Democrats” at our church library to soon learn more.

        IS AMERICA WAKING UP?
        Early in the 18th century, the United States experienced a “Great Awakening.” It was a religious awakening. And again, in the 19th century, a second great religious awakening occurred, causing a reinvigorated enthusiasm to reconnect with Jesus Christ. Now, some are asking, “Is the United States reawakening again, once more? And if so, what kind of ‘Great Awakening’ is this one?”
        Thomas Paine once said, “It is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.”
        The words of Thomas Pain seem to be very fitting for our time. I say this due to the revival of a “political movement” that is gaining momentum in the United States; it’s called nationalism, or as some have alternately labeled it, populism, that is presently capturing the attention of the American populace.
        However, it has caused a political polarization within the public square, and with such intensity that it’s palpable—you can cut it with a knife. Yet, some would prefer to deny it’s happening, but it is. Lines are being drawn and sides are being taken!
        The Internet is boiling over with enormous varieties of speculation and conspiratorial jargon that is loaded with prodigious amounts of information and unfortunately, disinformation, too. We have a plethora of news outlets available over a vast network of different mediums to keep us all well informed, 24/7, all year. It’s rather overwhelming when considering the content of information we have at our fingertips.
        Combine this with a President who is not shy about using social media, and you have a recipe for controversy, intrigue, plots, and speculation, which occasionally is constructed from classified disclosures never before available to Mr. & Mrs. Joe Public—and frankly, some are finding out they “can’t handle the truth!”
        Part of this is due to the disclosures of Wikileaks, and former intelligence contractor, Edward Snowdon, of the National Security Agency, along with a variety of investigative reporters who all contribute to this new kind of “Great Awakening,” which is a political awakening, not religious, that has begun to reveal a level of corruption, subterfuge, and intrigue, lying, and spying within the United States government upon its own citizens and allies that is so large in size, that frankly, it’s just incredibly shocking and in so many ways hard to believe!
        Yet, as Thomas Paine said, “We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth…” And it is painful to recognize leaders of the United States that held and still do hold top level positions of trust in government, law enforcement, security and justice roles, with high level security clearances, who are involved in such nefarious and in some cases, illegal activity!
        When you begin to realize the government of your beloved country has for decades, under both Republican and Democratic administrations, have been betraying its citizens, allies, andeach others’ political efforts by accessing private phone records, computer search engines and/or wide-reaching intercepts and surveillance activity, or controlling and making up data, or dossiers to favor certain political parties and entities, along with spying on world leaders that are supposed to be your friendly allies, and meddling in foreign civil unrest—it becomes a stunningly disappointing reality check of abandoned honesty, integrity, and respect for the rule of law.
        Right or wrong, regardless of our opinion, information has now been publicized, revealing just how the United States has been working over the last few decades. Many of us find ourselves incredulous over what and who appears to be involved, and seems to be building toward the unsealing of over 28,000 sealed indictments since the current administration has taken position. By the way, that represents an increase from an average of just 1000 to 1500 annually! This is mind numbing! And the mainstream media is M.I.A.!
        However, we are now beginning to see some names coming into the public eye and arrests for crimes committed. Most recently, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, accused of sexual misconduct, resigned. Founder Keith Rainer and movie star Allison Mack, who plays Chloe in the Superman series Smallville, has also been arrested and charged for “recruiting” on behalf of the executive training company, NXIVM, for human sex trafficking, money laundering, and tax fraud with suspected ties to the Clinton Foundation—and this is just the beginning!
        Sources close to the FBI and DOJ claim many of those under secret indictments are judges, current and former politicians, and business executives, all in line to be revealed, as the courts begin processing these indictments for prosecution and bring these charges forward, incrementally, over the coming months and years! It’s no wonder as to why approximately 50 senators and congressman have resigned or will not be seeking re-election. It’s fair to say some may not want to endure the public embarrassment, or maybe made deals to stand down.
        But whatever the reason, stay tuned, because it’s going to become quite shocking for some of us when it’s revealed publicly as to just who is, and was, involved in so much of this corruption, graft, and immorality for so long—decades long—especially here in the United States. The names that have been leaked and the charges they will face will be shocking for some to comprehend, while others will probably not believe the magnitude, scope, and degree of subterfuge, treason, and sexual misconduct that has taken place by both elected and appointed officials of trust, at some of the highest levels of leadership, from both sides of the aisle!
        What Is the Reawakening?
        Thomas Paine said, “For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.” Jesus said, “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
        Admittedly, this was meant to be in context to His Word, the Gospel, but the principle still stands, and it doesn’t dismiss this fact: “Truth” has a way of setting you free from the shackles of control, deceit, anxiety, danger, and harm. It can be empowering—this is undeniable, especially as a Christian!
        There’s an old saying that “Honesty is the best policy.” When you have nothing to hide and you can live a life of openness and transparency, then no one or nothing can control your behavior in what you do, say, or think—that should be the aspiration of every Christian today. But, sadly, too many of our political leaders, educators, and those running our large corporations, along with some in law enforcement agencies, do not adhere to the Christian values so critical to the character necessary when serving the public trust. John Adams said it very plainly when he explained, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
        It would seem obvious, due to the liberty and freedom our U.S. constitution provides, that trust becomes a determining factor for the success of benefiting the greater citizenry. Otherwise, those of lesser character, untrustworthy, working self-serving agendas, can easily “game” the system and become very rich due to the access of power and influence, which comes with the positions of privilege while serving the public. That, unfortunately, is exactly what has been going on for the past 50–60 years. Far too many of our leaders, both Blue and Red, have been getting rich at the expense of the country’s well being and the people they’re supposed to serve!
        The prophet Isaiah has a lot to say to the United States; and though he’s speaking to ancient Israel, the cultural parallels are dead on and stunning! “Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity [perversity, evil, mischief], a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the LORD, …from the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it [they’re irrational, and void of judgment—moral relativism is now the rule]; the wounds and bruises, and putrefying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment [no accountability]. Your country is desolate, your cities are burned with fire [literally, and culturally]: your land, strangers [foreigners] devour it in your presence, and it is desolate, as over thrown by strangers [foreigners]” (Isaiah 1:4–7).
        Jeremiah has a similar message for Judah some 120 years later, but prophetically speaking, is also very appropriate and cogent for our country today. You might as well consider him warning many presidents, congressman, senators and judges—prime ministers, ambassadors, and many political leaders throughout the land of North America and the British Commonwealth nations—that judgment is upon the land. Notice how Jeremiah’s message is so germane for us today:
        “Declare this [this is a declaration] in the house of Jacob [which did not exist at this time—they had been conquered 120 years before. You can make the case that this actually is directed to us, for today] and publish it [make it known] in Judah [in Jeremiah’s time, as well as the future Israeli nation of the latter days], saying, Hear now foolish people, and without understanding [reprobates—void of judgment]; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not [you’re in denial and blind]: Fear you not me? saith the Lord: will you not tremble at my presence [Do you not respect God, His laws, power, and authority?]…. But this people has a revolting and a rebellious heart; they are revolted and gone. Neither say they in their heart, Let us now fear the Lord our God [They are an arrogant people that does not revere or submit to God’s instruction]…. Your iniquities have turned away these things, and your sins have withholden good things from you [We are limiting God from providing and protecting us because we choose to disregard His laws]. For among my people are found wicked men: they lay wait, as he that sets snares; they set a trap, they catch men [They purposely set people up for blackmail and extortion, to control their actions]. As a cage is full of birds, so are their houses full of deceit [The houses of authority are full of leaders who deceive for self serving gain and are controlled for unethical and immoral purposes]: therefore they are become great, and waxen rich [They go into public service of trust and by exploits and subterfuge, blackmail, and extortion, become fat and rich]. They are waxen fat, they shine [They become prominent and popular]: yea they over pass the deeds of the wicked [They overlook lawlessness and ignore the rule of law for gain and power]: they judge not the cause, the cause of the fatherless [The leaders don’t care about the orphan, but exploit children for gain, trafficking them into slavery and illicit sexual service], yet they prosper; and the right of the needy do they not judge [They don’t serve the needs of the poor; instead they take advantage of them for personal gain and power]. Shall I not visit for these things? says the Lord: shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this [God fully intends to deliver justice for this injustice]? An astonishment and horrible thing is committed in the land [There is much evil in this described society]; The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means [The religious leaders are misleading the people and not instructing them in truth. Why? To maintain their own gain, prominence, and control]; and my people love to have it so [The people prefer it this way because it makes them feel good]: and what will you do in the end thereof” (Jeremiah 5:20–31)? Yes, that is the question for all of us to answer upon realizing the evidentiary evil that clearly surrounds us.
        We are living in some very remarkably parallel times. It is obvious the United States and the United Kingdom, along with many of its commonwealth nations, suffer from the same sycophant pathologies and activities. Things we used to trust in and felt secure with are now beginning to unravel and come unglued because of disclosures made public that reveal those in public service betrayed the trust of the office they were elected or appointed to serve in. And God is not amused at this kind of political graft, corruption, and betrayal. As Hosea said during the time of the Assyrian invasions of the 8th century against Israel (not Judah): “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because you have rejected knowledge, I [God] will also reject you [the nation], that you shall be no priest [figuratively, a moral religious standard] to me: seeing you have forgotten the law of your God, I [God] will also forget your children [future generations]” (Hosea 4:6). These are harsh statements from the God we embrace as a country!
        God is fed up with a nation that does the things described above. And it has been His pattern to correct any nation that embraces His standards as the God of the land, which the United States has done since its inception. And though many of us would argue and have to admit the United States itself hasn’t been perfect with human rights, it still doesn’t dismiss this current fact: Its attraction is due to personal freedoms and liberties, compared to the rest of the world, that excel all other nations. Everyone wants to immigrate to the United States—even if it requires breaking the law to get in!
        So What’s Coming Up Ahead—Around the Next Bend
        The United States is positioning for a correction in its course of interaction with the world’s community of nations. It would appear by the actions of this President, that he fully intends to rebuild and reinforce the overall strength and posture of the United States on the world stage. His most recent passing of the Omnibus Budget Bill clearly indicates military spending is a top priority. The fact this $1.3 trillion bill has $720 billion earmarked for military expenditures plainly indicates he is refurbishing and expanding the military might of America, for whatever military action may be required. Actually, it appears he fully expects preparedness for war is justified, and that’s why more than half of this Omnibus Bill is devoted to military spending!
        We are living in a time when at least four or five nations of the world are fully able to destroy all life on this planet. Mankind has achieved, without a doubt, the level of destructive capability that is now maximized. We are in the end times, just by knowing this “factoid” alone!
        With that in mind, the words of Jesus Christ should echo in our minds to secure us during these evil and perilous times. Notice, “Take heed that you be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draws near: go you not after them. But when you shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not immediately. Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: And great earthquakes shall be in different places and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven” (Luke 21:8–11). This is what is up ahead, around the next bend!
        In addition, “And when you see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is near” (Luke 21:20). It goes on to say that if you’re in that area, get out, and if you’re not in that area, stay out. Don’t go to the Middle East (verse 21)! Don’t believe and don’t be deceived by those claiming to know Christ and then advise you to go to the Middle East for safety and protection—that’s nonsense! Jesus says, “…and let not them that are in the countries [in and around the area] enter thereinto” (Luke 21:21). In other words, stay out of the area!
        Remember, Jesus said that wars and commotions will occur, but the end is not immediately. There will be nations rising against each other and great signs happening in the heavens, but Jesus will still be delayed—He will not come yet.
        It seems we need to be aware that preparing for wars and commotions up ahead is an appropriate worldview and mindset to have. There are a lot of tensions building with nations having the full capability of unleashing weapons of mass destruction, causing damage of biblical proportions. This is not hyperbole, but unfortunately, our current reality. We need to be mature about it and learn to embrace our current state of affairs with faith, confidence, and courage.
        Those of us who understand God’s expectations know He is not amused at the leadership, or social and immoral conditions of those nations claiming allegiance to Him. So, it should be no surprise about what potentially is coming in the way of worldwide conflict—especially since Jesus warned us “nation shall rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom.”
        The United States is relearning to express assertive leadership after decades of appeasement, apologies, and accommodation at the expense of its own national well being and security. The question is, Will the world’s community of nations, having been working an agenda of globalism, accept and adjust to this revived nationalistic approach the United States, United Kingdom, and a handful of others within the European Union are now adopting? That remains to be seen as to how it will all play out.
        But we do know this: What’s up ahead and around the next bend is a globalist regime in the form of a “Beast Power” that will ultimately manifest for a short time (Revelation 17:11–14). And a major obstacle blocking the way for that to occur is nationalistic nations adhering to the ideology of sovereign states with borders. This is contrary to the globalist ideology and agenda of a One World Order. The clashing of these two geopolitical worldviews—Nationalism vs. Globalism—is what presents the potential for worldwide conflict between these nations that disagree about which is the better ideology for solving humanity’s global problems.
        In the ensuing years, we will see how this comes together to fit the description of what our Bible explains as a “resurrected” end-time Babylon which will rule the vast majority of the world, and “mark” the people who are part of its neo-pagan religious socialist system. Until then, it’s important we recognize that enduring until the end is required, if we expect to be saved (Matthew 24:13; Revelation 2:26).

    • President Trump said to Judge Jeanine Pirro that “If you worship and praise Me and make Me your Personal Lord and Savior, I will worship and praise your PRETTY BIG LIPS, LIPSTICK, SMILE and EARRINGS honeybun. I love your nice rosie and sweet big pink lips Jeanine sweetheart and you need to be my fiancee’ honey” as Trump mentioned to Pirro and this is Good News Gospel of Trump and Pirro! Next week, I plan to preach a sermon on how Pirro and Trump would have a SUPERGOOD RELATIONSHIP THAT IS 100% REPUBLICAN CHRISTIAN. This will be good for America too!

      Parental Rights Under Attack In Public Schools And That Means That The Democrats Are Of Satan The Devil. The Republicans Are Christian. Proven True In Your Own Bible!
      SUNDAY, 1 MARCH 2020 3:48 PM – POSTED IN HEADLINES
      By Jan Markell, Jack Hibbs and Jill Martin Riche reporting
      Whatever happened to parent’s rights when it comes to their children in public schools? It’s becoming more frequent that parents who disagree with transgender ideology have no idea how much is already accepted in schools, and how many teachers encourage kids to use preferred pronouns, receive hormone therapy, or even “transition” to the gender of their choice. Many parents are being left out of these life-altering decisions and this means that Nancy Pelosi, IIhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants America to become faggots and lesbians. I want to say at our Olivetree Ministries Depot that we Americans need to worship and praise our Good Republican Christian Government Leaders to make Republican Jesus Christ from Heaven work better spiritually. Start by making President Trump, Mike Pence, Michele Bachmann and George Bush your Personal Lords and Saviors and that way, Jesus Christ will make America Holy, Prosperous and Righteous. It did for me personally and for my colleagues here at the Olivetree Ministries Depot in Maple Grove, MN and I am sure that it will work well for you if you will give things a chance with faith in this venture.

      • Our church on 13 Firstfield Road Suite 100 in Gaithersburg Maryland 20878 with phone number 301-355-6550 believes in making Donald Trump and George Bush our Good Republican Christian Personal Lords and Saviors so that jesus Christ will work better for our Seneca Creek Church. The Bible in the form of parables and symbols says that in order to become a Christian, you have to become a Republican. The democrats are of satan because they believe in the faggots and lesbians of LGBTQ and the other things that are corrupt and contradict what the Bible says. For comments, call our church and learn what is right and true!

How is it that her own people have really benefited by the Trumperoos policies .

    • WORLD MARKETS FALLING
      From King Of The Nations Church Pastor Gregg Zetts who is our Good Journalist and Bookstore Director at our Church in Rockville, Maryland
      Posted on 13th March 2020

      I enjoy reading the news reports and that my wife enjoys cooking and this is hormones epitomized in the traditional sense but have to say that trade and travel restrictions associated with the coronavirus are negatively impacting global financial markets (Reuters, March 8, 2020) and our people need the power of God to clean and sanitize the air in our world. The news reports are telling us that stock markets around the world, including in the United States, have been spiraling down for the past several weeks as fear of the virus spreads caused by satan and his demons. And now, as oil prices drop, markets continue to be affected along with our automobiles, sports equipment, schools, camps, stores and banks in our jurisdictions and abroad.
      Russia and OPEC nations led by Saudi Arabia continue to go to war financially with each other in the oil arena. Russia and OPEC nations were working together on global oil output (CNBC.com, March 9, 2020). However, with global economies stagnating due to the coronavirus outbreak, these countries need more revenue. In response to Russia’s refusal to lower oil output, not only has Saudi Arabia lowered oil prices but the Middle Eastern kingdom is also reportedly considering an increase in oil production—pushing oil prices even lower. Economists predict that a price war over oil may negatively impact U.S. oil revenue—and, together with other effects of the coronavirus outbreak, may trigger a global recession and the Bible talks about Armageddon, Great Tribulation and World War Three(Final Armageddon) before the Lord’s return to do His inventory of the earth.
      It is difficult to know how low world economies will tumble and for how long they will remain suppressed. But, as national economies decline, there could come a time when nations will begin to look for an economic savior but, which “savior” will you look to for help? You want to study the Bible for the TRUE SAVIOR as the Bible prophecy indicates that a future European “beast” power will develop a powerful economic engine by which nations of the earth will be made rich (Revelation 17–18).
