Points To Ponder

Point 1:

“I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters,”Trump said at a campaign rally in Iowa.

Point 2:

Bill Clinton was supposed to be Hillary’s secret weapon. Thanks to Trump, though, no one looks at him the same way anymore. Because the truth finally got over the DC Media’s defensive line, we don’t see Bill Clinton as a popular former-president; what we see is another Bill Cosby: a sick, old pervert protected for decades by a starstruck media who have always known the truth.

Even more damaging is the fact that we no longer see Hillary as the victim of Bill’s ego and libido. Instead, we have been reminded forever that she is something almost as unforgivable as her husband: a vicious, nasty, power-hungry enabler.

People are not flocking to a 225 year-old socialist, they’re running away from the pervert’s enabler because Bernie is all they got.

Bernie is not beating Hillary Clinton. Trump is, and right now, when a pollster calls, Bernie is the only acceptable alternative.

Just like he did Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 79% … Just like he is currently doing to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 97% … Trump is single-handedly destroying Bill and Hillary Clinton.

The general election hasn’t even begun, and Trump has already forever-bloodied them on just this one issue. The good news is that the Benghazi-bungling, pervert-enabling, serial-lying, rape-denying, classified info-exposing, foreign money-grubbin, tool of Wall Street, has more vulnerabilities than a slug exposed to the sun.

H/T Roobeedoo for Point 3:

“Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is taking early steps toward launching an independent campaign for president, seeing a potential path to the White House amid the rise of Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Bernie Sanders,” AP reports, adding that “the billionaire media executive is said to be concerned by Trump’s lasting hold on the Republican field and is worried about the impact of Sanders’ campaign on Hillary Clinton’s bid for the Democratic nomination.”

In other words, Bloomberg is afraid that America may well end up having to choose between becoming i) a socialist “paradise” or ii) a nation run by a brazen real estate mogul with absolutely no filter and not much in the way of experience to suggest he’s fit for the job.

Apparently, Bloomberg will almost definitely run if Bernie Sanders wins the Democratic ticket and either Cruz or Trump prevails on the GOP side.

I need to get some more popcorn.

    Bloombergs only goal is to try and split some votes,problem is bloomy will only steal leftwing progressive votes not GOP votes. One thing is for sure The silent majority is marching mad and is all worked up and will rally at the polls for Trump. Bloomberg had his chance and proved to everyone he is a total commie leftist to the bitter max. In fact I would say Bloomberg wouldn’t field 3-5% of the total popular vote if even that.

      Michael Bloomberg Mulling Run for President as an Independent

      Bloomberg’s path to victory remains narrow and unlikely.

      I think he’d steal votes from both sides. Remember that many (likely nonsmoking, non-Coke-drinking) NY Republicans actually liked him. He made the trains run on time and was friendly to business, if you don’t count bars and neighborhood restaurants. IOW, there are PC R’s too. However, the appeal of this tight-lipped twit to the rest of the country would be less than fractional.

        Points to ponder:

        Bloomberg is 73 years old, so will be 82 if he gets a second term. And he’s a Jew (Reform Judaism is what Google says). He’s a known misogynist and he’s a short arse.

        http://www.rense.com/general49/why.htm

        He’s renowned for manipulating the legal system and using that to his own ends. He was slapped all over television as one of they key advocates for the climate change convention in Paris. He’s got so much political baggage he needs a 16 wheel Mack truck to lug it around.

        Trump is 69, so will be 78. He’s a Protestant and judges people on merit… full stop. Trump stands at 1.88 meters or just over 6 feet – oh and he still has a fine head of hair. Trump works within the system, sometimes at the very edges of the envelope, but still within the letter of the law. Trump is not cosy with advocacy groups and has sod-all baggage.

        The main difference is Trump is enjoying himself, he’s committed to the long haul and he’s winning on argument and sheer force of personality. Bloomberg is all about control, rules, regulations and legislation – and has the personality of putrid road kill.

        Mind you, a battle of the billionaires will make a change from the usual trash of career politicians.

          Bloomberg would not run against Hillary, only against Sanders. And to bolster my theory that he’d draw from Republicans, this morning on a news show, Jeb Bush–an Establishment rep– when asked about a Bb run, simply said he’d been a very good mayor. I believe he’d be a refuge for Trump-scared Rs as well as Sanders-scared D’s. And, throwing down the gauntlet here, Trump Fans, how do you feel about a guy who’s so carried away with himself and with what he can get away with that he lists random murder on Fifth Avenue? Further, he’s flipped on so many issues, and is anti-smoking on a personal level, so what makes you think he won’t further the war on smokers?

          how do you feel about a guy who’s so carried away with himself and with what he can get away with that he lists random murder on Fifth Avenue?

          I didn’t think he actually meant that. I think he was reflecting on the fact that more or less whatever he says or does, his supporters stick with him.

          what makes you think he won’t further the war on smokers?

          That would be a very politically correct thing to do. And he’s said that America doesn’t need political correctness. And I think he’s probably well aware from his casino experience that smoking bans are bad for business. The real question should be: could he be worse than Hillary or Bloomberg?

          And maybe he’ll come come out and say something about smoking bans. If he wins the nomination, he’s got plenty of time to do so.

          Donald Trump welcomed Michael Bloomberg into the race – should the former mayor of New York want in. “Michael has been a friend of mine over the years,” the Republican frontrunner said. “I don’t know if we’re friends anymore, frankly. But Michael has been a friend of mine. I would love to have Michael Bloomberg run. I would love that competition.”

      • Frank Davis says:

        If the article about how Trump has been causing Hillary Clinton’s recent woes has any truth to it, given how Trump has been causing other Republican candidates similar woes, I’d imagine that he’d have a field day with the uncharismatic Bloomberg. He probably knows him quite well already. And knows quite a few of his secrets. e.g. Bloomberg’s been giving money to Islamic fundamentalists to bring in smoking bans, hasn’t he?

    Anti-smoking advocates want to force ‘end game’ in war against tobacco

    Canadian smoking are rates lower than ever, but the pace for those quitting has slowed

    Though current smoking rates are lower than ever, Tilson said they could stand to fall even further. But she added that governments will have to do more to make that happen.

    “There’s a lot of talk around the world now of end game — and what most people mean by that is getting rates of tobacco down to about 5 per cent,” she said. “We know it’s doable. But governments need to do a lot more for that to happen and just continuing with the incremental approach that we’ve seen in a lot of places is not going to work.”

    World Atlas: More People Smoking Cigarettes than Ever

    There are more people smoking now than ever before, despite health warnings and the rising price of cigarettes. In 1980, 4,453 billion cigarettes went up in smoke, which increased to 6,319 billion in 2010. By 2020, you can expect to find nearly seven billion cigarette ends littering the world.

    Top of the charts in terms of nicotine addiction are Asia and Australia, which is where 57 percent of cigarettes are smoked today.

    Funny how free speech with facts that reduce tobacco controls propaganda into mush soup is considered so verboten by them and likely why fact ridden comments from OSHA on pels and actual real science destroying the SHS HOAX and even the direct smoking claims end up deleted by editors on the take from tobacco control grants publishing BS commentary from prohibitionist groups

    I could not really make my mind up about Trump. Then I thought about how much empathy he could possibly conjure up for the elderly smokers Hilary has no problem with making homeless…
    Trump has a lot of cash – and will always be able to do as he likes.

But Michael has been a friend of mine. I would love to have Michael Bloomberg run. I would love that competition.”

    To me this tells me nothing. Why doesn’t he know if they are still friends or not? Weird….

Because the truth finally got over the DC Media’s defensive line, we don’t see Bill Clinton as a popular former-president; what we see is another Bill Cosby: a sick, old pervert protected for decades by a starstruck media who have always known the truth.
    The truth got out a little earlier…. “I did not have sex with that woman…” And Clinton got away with it.
    Even more damaging is the fact that we no longer see Hillary as the victim of Bill’s ego and libido. Instead, we have been reminded forever that she is something almost as unforgivable as her husband: a vicious, nasty, power-hungry enabler.
    At the time I had quite a lot of respect for Hilary – If I was her I would ensure he suffers for this humiliation for the rest of his life!! (Very rarely I am unforgiving and less even forget!!)
    But then, her political career may well have been a deal to play the wifey. I have to take my hat off to that level of vindictiveness!! She sure has no problem hurting innocent people when she gets her payback chance! The ideal person to push tobacco control’s wishes.

    I think there is something seriously wrong with a system that requires a potential candidate to buy his/her way into presidential position. Campaigns are costly…. And these campaign circuses are gradually swapping over to this continent everywhere. Will our lives be run by people who have absolutely no idea how we all live?

    Points to ponder…. Indeed.
