Quite a number of Americans today have convinced themselves that President Trump is any number of terrible things. The words, “autocrat”, “tyrant”, “dictator” and more have been cavalierly tossed around. Trump has done nothing that would suggest any of those characterizations are true.
But the newest Democrat Presidential candidate, Michael Bloomberg is quite another matter. In a recent interview with Margaret Hoover of PBS’s Firing Line, Bloomberg expressed an extraordinary admiration for the leadership style of Chinese Communist dictator Xi Jinping and the Chinese Communist Party.
One wonders what kind of President Bloomberg would be when he holds Xi Jinping in such high esteem. President Xi runs a country where at least a million people are in Nazi style concentration camps, where organs are harvested from living prisoners and where China alone is responsible for 1/3 of the word’s pollution. If you’re keeping score, that’s more than double what the USA is responsible for.
Part of the interview has been transcribed below, but here is the clip of the jaw dropping interview.
”The Chinese Communist Party wants to stay in power in China. And they listen to the public.”—Michael Bloomberg on Firing Line with Margaret Hoover
“Xi Jinping is NOT a dictator. He has to satisfy his constituents or he’s not going to survive.”—Michael Bloomberg on Firing Line with Margaret Hoover
Margaret Hoover, the granddaughter of President Herbert Hoover, appearing incredulous, said “He’s not a dictator?” Then, in response, more gems of wisdom from Chairman Mike:
Chairman Mike: “No, he has to, he has a constituency that eh to to to uhh ehh umm ahhh answer to to.”
Hoover: “He doesn’t have a vote. He doesn’t have a democracy. He’s not held accountable by any voters. Is the check on him just a revolution?”
Chairman Mike: “That doesn’t mean he can survive. If his advisers gave him….You’re not going to have a revolution. No government survives without the will of the majority of its people. OK? It’s just…he has to deliver services. The Chinese Communist Party looks at Russia and they look for where the Communist Party is and they don’t find it anymore. And they don’t want that to happen.”
Hoover: I mean, the idea that the Chinese government is responsive to a sort of democratic expression of fresh air or clean air…”
Chairman Mike (interrupting): ”Oh, come on! Of course they are!”
Hoover: “I’m looking at the people in Hong Kong who are protesting and who are wondering if the Chinese government cares about what they have to say.”
Chairman Mike (with dripping condescension): “Go back and read the press the days you had big pollution in Beijing and they’re doing something about it. That’s ridiculous! The trouble is, you can’t overnight move cement plants and power plants that are just outside the city that are polluting the air and you have to have their product, so some of this takes time. And there’s always in government, even in governments not what we would call a democracy, the stakeholders who have a vested interest an they have an impact.”Margaret Hoover and Michael Bloomberg on Firing Line.
SOME OF THE FACES OF THE JOURN-O-LIST
Does anyone still remember the Journ-O-List? Back in 2008, a group of about 400-500 liberal news people, academics and pundits were part of a secret list serve organized by Ezra Klein.
Who is Ezra Klein? He’s a millennial Californian. A liberal graduate of UCLA, who considers himself a “journalist”. Those quotes are intentional because Klein isn’t a non-partisan journalist at all. The Journ-O-List was organized to promote the candidacy of Barack Obama by coordinating through its members positive coverage for Obama and negative coverage for John McCain and Republicans.
If you google the Journ-O-List you will find many articles trying to knock down allegations of deliberate and intentional bias on their part. It is notable, however, that there is evidence aplenty on the other side. The only reason these CYA articles were necessary is due to the fact that literally dozens of reputations and careers were rightly placed at risk. The unfortunate truth is, however, that former members of the Journ-O-List today, occupy many prominent positions in the media, having suffered no lasting damage to their careers at all. None of these people should be in the news business any longer posing as actual impartial reporters. They are the beating black heart of the left wing bias in today’s news media.
Minnesota’s Attorney General is Keith Ellison, the former Congressman. Ellison has been credibly accused of sexual assault as well as anti-Semitism. Is it tru? This series of articles makes a compelling case
In the early days of 2017, two very important articles were published by the New York Times and the Washington Post. The Times reported that President Obama, during his last week in office, changed the rules regarding the sharing of classified information in the intelligence agencies. Obama’s change allowed for a greater number of people able to share information and who they could share it with. This “sharing” gave Obama holdovers in the permanent government all the tools they needed to sabotage the incoming Trump Administration, which they did and continued to do.
In 2012, the IRS delayed granting 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4) status to hundreds of conservative Tea Party groups. These groups were hamstrung by the IRS placing inordinately burdensome documentary requirement to satisfy a request that was routine: namely granting status as a 501(c)(3) or 501(c)(4) organization. It is quite possible that Obama owes his 2012 re-election win to the underhanded actions of the IRS and Lois Lerner.
Operation Fast and Furious was a gun running operation that was operated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The badly run operation was supposed to serve as a predicate for stricter gun control laws. Instead, it led to the deaths of hundreds of Mexicans and an American border patrol agent.
When Central American migrants showed up at the Southern border with young children, the Trump Administration drew fire from critics by separating the children from the adults. Trump’s opponents wasted no time painting him as heartless. It was an effective political strategy, but was it really true that President Trump was being deliberately cruel? This article from the Washington Post in 2016 explains how thousands of children were actually being smuggled into the United States by human traffickers. Some of the children were abandoned to die in the desert. Others were were sold into sex slavery to pedophiles. Still others were placed into forced labor. This article outlines the living conditions some experienced on an egg farm in Ohio.
In truth, President Trump was acting to protect the children by separating them from the adults who accompanied them. It was a painful and heart wrenching episode, but it prevented thousands more children being trafficked into the United States for illicit purposes.
Robert Mueller found that the alleged collusion by Donald Trump with the Russians never actually happened. But that was not the only collusion with Russia that was alleged to have occurred. There was other collusion and it has been ongoing for years and it is directly tied to the Democrat Party and their pursuit of a green, carbon and fossil fuel free agenda.
Considering how heavily the Russian economy relies on fossil fuels, it is not altogether surprising that Russia would attempt to influence US policy makers to limit domestic fossil fuel production as a way to bolster the world market prices.
That influence comes in the form of Russian money funneled through off shore shell corporations into Democrat connected environmentalist groups like the Sierra Club and the Natural Resources Defense Council. This e-book lays it all out.
The Russian Collusion hoax was arguably the most egregious fraud ever perpetrated on the American public. Even today, many Americans continue to believe President Donald Trump colluded with the Russian government to influence the outcome of the 2016 Presidential election, despite the fact that Special Counsel, Robert Mueller found no actual collusion or conspiracy and the Department of Justice itself concluded no Americans worked with any Russians to affect the election and not a single vote was affected.
But who were those responsible for advancing this myth? The answer is literally dozens of journalists, politicians an ne’er do wells. That is what you will find in the e-book below.
Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar is more than just a controversial figure. She is very seriously compromised.
