The linked video is the audio of Mike Bloomberg's 2015 Aspen Institute speech where he goes on a rant about minority kids and guns. The actual video was taken down previously, but the audio made it back up.

Someone needs to record this before it goes away again.

"Michael Bloomberg representatives have asked the Aspen Institute not to distribute footage of his recent appearance in Aspen"

 

Typical to shut down the info.

The MSM lefty media is already doing it
https://slate.com/ne...sk-policing.amp

Funny how this clip has been well known by us pro 2A people since it first came out, now the rest of the world is finally taking it seriously. Maybe theyll finally take seriously that all their gun control legislation they push mostly locks up black and brown minorities, not their avowed enemy, the rural American.

I'm not sure if the following story should be in the Virginia post or anti-Bloomberg:

 

Bloomberg skips opening of northern Virginia campaign office due to overwhelming presence of 2A supporters:

As is typical of protests from the right, they were respectful and the police appreciated their courteousness. This is how you win!

I would never vote for Michael Bloomberg. I would rather vote for (hold your nose) Hilary Clinton.

Wait, that's NEWS? That's been widely known, Bloomberg's racist dislike of minorities having firearms, even over that of "regular" people having firearms, just like Daley I was a racist Irish guy from Bridgeport who didn't want "coloreds" to have firearms, and even colluded with LBJ about it, thus why we have the FOID card.

 

Essentially, if it is a wealthy politician who is for social equality, they want to be armed, have scary minorities disarmed, and have regular people be disarmed, but they and their fellow governing elites need to be protected by armed guards due to their special nature.

 

And I say this as a left-leaning libertarian, who believes that the average person is supposed to be armed to such an extent that the government and any elites who might suppress their rights, including the right to free speech, freedom from persecution, and the right to access private services such as abortion, live in mortal terror that if they annoy the population sufficiently that their fate will to be removed from power and influence with extreme prejudice.

"A well regulated Militia, being necessary for the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."

 

Who gets to keep and read books? The Media? Or is it the People?

I'm going to predict Super Tuesday will be horrible for lil' mikey.

 

He will do horrible in South Carolina first  :laugh:

 

Wonder how he has built such a huge national staff in record time? He pays them well above the going rate, gives them free iPhones, free laptops, and guarantees job through the general election whether he is the nominee or not.

 

Nobody likes the guy, not even his staff.

 

I wonder if Michael Douglas showed up in Madison, WI the day after his father's funeral for free?

 

https://isthmus.com/...y-is-no-object/

 

Isthmus spoke to one recently hired Bloomberg campaign staffer who asked to remain anonymous so as not to “lose the best job I’ve ever had.” 

 

“I didn’t come into this as the biggest Bloomberg fan, he is growing on me. I’m not saying I’m not bought and paid for,” says the anonymous staffer. “He’s a billionaire. What he spends on this race he’s not going to miss. I’m a big supporter of his jobs plan for me.” 

 

Isthmus confirmed salary details with online job postings for the Bloomberg campaign in other states, as well as with a source who was offered a regional director job in Wisconsin but ultimately turned it down. Field organizers, who are organizing canvasses and tabling events, are being paid $6,000 a month. More senior level positions like communication managers and office directors are receiving salaries closer to $10,000 a month. 

 

Former leadership for the Democratic Party of Wisconsin is also jumping on the Bloomberg boat. Brandon Weathersby, former communications director for the state party, is Bloomberg’s press secretary for Wisconsin. Mike Tate, former state chair for the Dems, confirms he’s a senior advisor for the campaign.

 

Isthmus spoke with six people, all with experience working for campaigns in Wisconsin, who affirm that Bloomberg is paying staffers well above market rate and having a noticeable effect on the state campaigns of other presidential candidates, as well as races down the ballot; this is especially true in Milwaukee, which has competitive races for mayor and county executive the same day as the presidential primary on April 7. 

 

One veteran campaign staffer, on condition of anonymity, told Isthmus Bloomberg is paying “top dollar.” Another put it like this: “[Bloomberg] is paying a **** ton. Enough to make people forget he’s a former Republican.” 

 

Heather Colburn, the state director for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign in Wisconsin, isn’t working for the Bloomberg campaign in 2020. But she estimates the former New York City mayor is paying $2,000-$2,500 more a month for entry level staffers, an amount that just can’t be matched by other candidates. 

 

In addition to above-market pay, campaign staffers are also being given iPhone 11s and Apple laptops that they get to keep if they work on the campaign through November. Promises that these well paying jobs will last through the entire election helped sell the gig to the anonymous staffer Isthmus spoke with. 

 

“I’m going to get paid whether [Bloomberg] is the nominee or not. We have all been promised our jobs will continue through November whoever the Democratic nominee ends up being,” says the staffer. “I’ve never had a job where they tell you, ‘Your brand new iPhone is on the way.’ It's insane.”

I wonder if Bloomberg is paying payroll taxes on these salaries? Or if his people are "independent contractors"? And if they are, if they will be paying their quarterly estimated taxes to the Feds, and as appropriate to the various states?

Sounds like lil' mikey can pack 'em in.

Bloomberg's attacks on Trump elicited cheers from packed houses in coffee shops, community centers, music clubs and even a train station in cities including Chattanooga, Tenn., Nashville, Tenn., Winston-Salem, N.C., Greensboro, N.C., and Raleigh, N.C.

The thing about Bloomberg that I like;

 

He's paying all of his campaign folks through the election in November and has promised to support the eventual nominee. When he doesn't get the DNC nomination, he is likely to keep his substantial election machine in place to promote and support the nominee. 

 

I would love to see Bloomberg wipe the debate floor with Trump... but I don't think Bloomberg will be the nominee.

You do know that any Democrat President will appoint justices who will overturn Heller, don't you? Do you really hate Trump more than you want the right to keep and bear arms?

He gets a few hundred people here and there to show up for the free food and they say things like this:

The fanfare has also drawn some who don’t plan to vote for the billionaire. “Don’t get me wrong, I like Mike Bloomberg,” said Ramon Vivas, who attended Mr. Bloomberg’s Miami rally in January and wore one of the free shirts bearing that message, along with two Bloomberg buttons. “But I don’t think he’s going to get the nomination, and I support Bernie.

I predict his numbers go down after he debates. He has the charisma of a can of paint.
