Bloomberg Joins Clinton in Sitting Out 2020 Presidential Race

The billionaire ducked out of the race to focus on a non-profit project.

Billionaire and former mayor of New York City Michael Bloomberg announced Tuesday that he will not seek the presidency in 2020.

“I love our country too much to sit back and hope for the best as national problems get worse,” Bloomberg said in an op-ed on his website. “But I also recognize that until 2021, and possibly longer, our only real hope for progress lies outside of Washington. And unlike most who are running or thinking of it, I’m fortunate enough to be in a position to devote the resources needed to bring people together and make a big difference.”

Bloomberg lamented the current situation in Washington, D.C. under President Donald J. Trump, and insisted that he could make more of a difference outside of the nation’s capitol. He announced the expansion of a clean energy campaign called “Beyond Coal,” on which he will apparently focus his energy instead of running for the highest office in the land.

“Now, I will take the next big steps. First, I will expand my support for the Beyond Coal campaign so that we can retire every single coal-fired power plant over the next 11 years,” he said. “That’s not a pipe dream. We can do it. And second, I will launch a new, even more ambitious phase of the campaign — Beyond Carbon: a grassroots effort to begin moving America as quickly as possible away from oil and gas and toward a 100 percent clean energy economy.”

Bloomberg is the second high-profile name in as many days to duck out of the 2020 race.

Monday, twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary R. Clinton said that she would not run in 2020 either.

Big League Politics reported:

Hillary Clinton is not running for president in 2020.

“The trajectory is to do what she did in 2018 and more,” a Clinton “friend” told The Hill. “I think that she is in a position to help the party come together, and depending on how things play out, that is something that she can do sooner than when she secured the nomination in 2016. If Democratic voters and activists start to coalesce around someone early, she can play an important role in bringing candidates together around that individual.”

So, barring a 2024 run, it’s likely that Hillary Clinton is never going to be the president of the United States.

Neither New York Democrat saw a path victory against the New York businessman who currently holds office.

Campaign 2020

The American Right Should Beware of Campaign Consultant Grifters

Some people want to make a quick buck with zero results to show for it.

Heading into 2022 and 2024, America First operatives should be careful dealing with campaigns run by grifters. 

Patrick Clerbune of VDARE put out an informative post that serves as a warning to all about the rampant corruption within Republican political consultant outfits. 

He highlighted a Washington Post piece detailing how donors gave more than $8 million to Kim Klacik, a black woman running as a Republican candidate in Maryland’s 7th district. In reality, the money donated to Klacik’s campaign went straight to the fat pockets of political consultants who knew full well that she couldn’t win.

The Post went into further detail about this naked grifting opportunity:

Her campaign is an example of how some consulting firms are profiting handsomely from Republican candidates who have robust appeal in today’s politically charged environment…

By the end of Klacik’s campaign, she would raise a staggering $8.3 million and pay nearly $3.7 million of it to Olympic Media, according to campaign finance filings.

For political veterans, this is nothing new under the sun. Political consultant parasites such as Karl Rove are notorious for enriching themselves by running failed campaigns and diverting resources from actual winnable races. Rove was also involved in the Georgia Senate dumpster fire, where the GOP dropped a whopping $1 billion and still ended up losing both seats. 

Pointing out how the managerial state is detrimental to all Americans, especially minorities, is one thing. But using failed ethnic pandering and running campaigns in districts that can never be won by Republicans is another. 

In the aforementioned case, Maryland’s 7th district has never gone Republican in its history and was the long-time home of Elijah Cummings from 1996 until his death in 2019. Democrat challenger Kweisi Mfume completely obliterated Klacik 74 to 25 in the 2020 general election. 

Intelligent nationalists would be wise to recognize that certain races are lost causes, which drain resources that could otherwise be allocated towards winnable campaigns. A large degree of skepticism should always be directed towards the political consultant class. Their money-making model does not always translate into electoral success.
