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.

CNN Journos Are Throwing a Fit About a Trump Administration Official’s Pro-Western Civilization Comments

Published

on

On June 29, 2020, writers Andrew Kaczynski and Nathan McDermott penned an op-ed at CNN attacking Merritt Corrigan, a deputy White House liaison at the US Agency for International Development, for some of the tweets she made between 2019 and 2020.

They claimed that she “has a history of inflammatory rhetoric aimed at refugees, the LGBTQ community and women.” CNN’s KFile analyzed several of the tweets from Corrigan’s account, “which were captured by the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine.”

Corrigan was previously employed at Hungary’s Embassy in the U.S.where she tweeted in support of nationalist Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban on multiple occasions.  She described him as “the shining champion of Western civilization,” according to ProPublica, which covered a number of Corrigan’s tweets on June 5.

Corrigan was also attacked for some of her anti-mass migration tweets. “Mass deportations when?,” Corrigan tweeted back in October 2019, linking to a 2010 article in which German Chancellor Angela Merkel declared that Germany’s multicultural experiment was a failure.

Corrigan also questioned radical feminist narratives, which bothered the hall monitors in the mainstream media. She was singled out in particular over a comment that she made in response to Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren’s statement in support of homosexual marriage during a Democratic presidential townhall.

“This sick statement by Warren, which glibly mocks a real crisis happening in our society, is exactly why women shouldn’t be in office. They will always advocate for themselves at the expense of men, and revel in it,” she tweeted back in October 2019.

In another tweet from that same month, Corrigan bashed conservative radio host Michael Knowles for sharing a picture of himself with a drag queen.

“Right wing gatekeepers have made it abundantly clear that their allegiance is to Satan and those who carry out his agenda of appalling sexual perversion over those who question the liberal status quo,” Corrigan tweeted.

It’s funny how outlets like CNN will obsess over people’s social media history, while turning a blind eye to journalists on the Left like the Washington Post’s global opinions editor Karen Attiah who recently declared that “White women are lucky that we are just calling them ‘Karen’s.’ And not calling for revenge,” in a tweet she quickly deleted.

CNN would be better served by actually reporting on the news and doing real journalism.

But that that might be too much to ask from a purveyor of Fake News like CNN which is more interested in perpetuating political correctness and distorting political developments to fit their globalist agenda.
