BUYING DEMOCRACY: Mike Bloomberg Plans to Double Ad Budget Following Iowa Caucus Disaster

This is big money in politics at its worst.

Published

Former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg is doubling the advertising budget for his presidential campaign, sensing a path for him to buy the Democrat presidential nomination amidst the chaos of the Iowa caucus disaster that still has not yielded a definitive winner.

The fake news media is already declaring that Bloomberg has “emerged triumphant from the chaotic Iowa caucuses before the results were even reported — and he never even set foot in the state.”

Politico reporters Sally Goldenberg and Christopher Cadelago surmised that Bloomberg “couldn’t have asked for a better outcome in his unconventional bid to become the nominee of a party he only re-joined in 2018.”

“Yesterday I hear something happened in Iowa. Or didn’t happen. I don’t know which,” Bloomberg told a Detroit audience on Tuesday afternoon.

Bloomberg’s campaign announced on Tuesday that they intend to double the size of their national campaign of advertisements, which already has cost an astronomical $315 million. His campaign, which already employs 2,100 field staff, will be growing exponentially as well.

“Things are going well. That’s when you want to put more money in,” Bloomberg said to Politico on Tuesday.

He intends to focus mainly on Trump rather than pick on one Democrat running for president, believing he is the man with the right pedigree to defeat the president in a head-to-head matchup.

“I’ve said the same thing about all of them so I don’t want to just pick on one,” Bloomberg said, looking ahead of internecine conflicts with his Democrat competitors. “I don’t think they’re tough enough to go against Trump.”

The mess at the Iowa caucus has also helped Bloomberg’s attacks on the state’s protected status. They want Iowa replaced with a battleground state with a more urban population so the nomination process can be more easily controlled.

“Call me old-fashioned, but I don’t really feel like a primary should be a board game,” Bloomberg campaign manager Kevin Sheekey said to NBC’s Chuck Todd. “I’ve had better luck having my nephew explain Minecraft to me than to understand what’s going on in Iowa tonight.”

Political analysts are saying that Bloomberg’s gamble to completely ignore Iowa has paid off, and, paired with former Vice President Joe Biden’s likely dismal showing in the state, will boost his well-funded campaign aimed at moderates.

“They made a calculation that Iowa wouldn’t be as determinative or impactful as past nominating fights and turns out they were right beyond Sheekey’s wildest dreams,” said Neal Kwatra, a New York-based politican operative not affiliated with any presidential campaign. “Now instead of a week of earned media momentum, we are gonna have a week of Democrats in dysfunction.”

He added, “And the technocratic billionaire looking all competent and capable waiting in the wings looks even more appealing to skittish and restive Democrats.”

There’s only one problem for Bloomberg standing in the way of the billionaire buying the Democrat presidential nomination: the radical insurgency that has coalesced around Bernie Sanders. Sanders’ hardcore and growing contingent of socialists in the Democrat Party will never likely vote for Bloomberg, even if it means putting Trump back into office.

“We should be ashamed of that, as Americans, as people that believe in democracy, that the oligarchs—if you have more money, you can buy your way,” said Nina Turner, a national co-chair of the Bernie Sanders campaign during a recent MSNBC appearance. She refused to back down from her statement.

“He is” an oligarch, Turner said when she was challenged by establishment Democrats. “He skipped Iowa. Iowans should be insulted. Buying his way into this race, period. The DNC changed the rules. They didn’t change it for Senator Harris. They wouldn’t change it for Senator Booker. They didn’t change it for Secretary Castro.”

Bloomberg may learn before the presidential race is over that his money can only take him so far.

Arizona Legislature to Hold Public Hearings on Matters of Election Integrity, “Stop the Steal” Rally Being Held Saturday

The hearing will be held on November 30th.

Published

on

The Arizona legislature will hold a hearing on election improprieties and the integrity of the state’s 2020 election on Monday. Members of the Arizona Senate and House of Representatives will participate on the public event.

Representative Mark Finchem of Legislative District will chair the hearing.

“Since shortly before the 2020 election a number of my colleagues and I have been examining potential fraud pathways and illegal actions through which our 2020 election could become tainted. My worst fears have come to light in the process, and so far the evidence has been blocked from an official public forum,” Rep. Finchem said. “A few weeks ago I requested approval for the House Federal Relations Committee to hold a hearing on the integrity of the Arizona 2020 election. That hearing has not yet been approved by House leadership, and time is of the essence to show proof that our election has been compromised.

Finchem cited sworn affidavits attesting to irregularities in Arizona’s election, voter fraud, and poor management on the part of (now outgoing) Maricopa County Recorder Adrian Fontes.

After a review of the statistical anomalies, and there are to numbers to count, affidavits of improper actions, and community outrage that has grown out of what appears to voters to be an attempt to throw the election through a number of fraudulent efforts, we decided as a Members of the Legislature, and not as members of any specific committee, that we should move forward with a public hearing.

Trump campaign attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis are expected to attend the hearing. Joe Biden appears to have won the state of Arizona by just over 10,000 votes.

State legislators have an imperative to remedy and rectify any election issues stemming from governmental improprieties, and can potentially appoint electors to the electoral college of their own volition.

A massive “Stop the Steal” rally is being held at the Arizona Legislature on Saturday at noon, with speakers including conservative commentator Nicholas J. Fuentes and Infowars host Alex Jones.
