Bloomberg: The Democrat Man behind the Curtain

Why is former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg running for president?

It's not to win. 

Bloomberg is in this to affect down-ballot races.  Vermont senator and stretch limousine liberal Bread Line Bernard Sanders would likely be disastrous for the Democrats down-ballot, and they know that (more on this in a bit).

With Bloomberg, the Democrats are hoping for a 2014-type scenario, where they win the House and Senate, while the other party has the presidency — the way the GOP won both the House and Senate in 2014.

Bloomberg is enough of a hodgepodge candidate to flip some seats blue; he's ] ideal for many Democrat voters, as he stands for nothing and stands for everything — the most dangerous type of politician.  Bloomberg won't win the general election versus President Trump, but he's not in it to win it — he's in it to drive Democrat voters to the purple U.S. House district elections (there are dozens of purple House seats up for grabs, including in Texas) and U.S. Senate races in several states Trump won in 2016.

This is a quintessential Democrat strategy: Republicans keep all their attention on the POTUS race, while the Democrats look to win purple districts and Senate races in purple states, because most Republicans (no offense, Republicans) don't understand electoral politics the way Democrats do.  If Bloomberg loses the general but helps the Democrats win House and Senate (or retain the House and reduce the GOP majority in the Senate, which is already razor-thin), then the Democrats will consider it a win.

If you can't beat Trump, lame-duck and handcuff him.  This is the Democrat strategy.

Bloomberg doesn't want the job; he wants to be the Wizard of Oz — the Democrat man behind the curtain.  The self-aggrandizer has taken credit for funding Trump's impeachment.  His super-PAC, Independence USA, spent nearly $38 million assisting Democrats in the 2018 congressional midterm elections.  And he spent $3 million in state Legislature and gubernatorial elections in 2018 and 2019.

When do we get to the Democrats' prattle of "campaign finance reform"?  Democrats like campaign finance reform only when they don't get the outcomes they want; when they get the outcomes they want, they're just "playing by the rules" and doing what's necessary to defeat evil Republicans.  Mind you, none of these Democrat politicians believe any of the balderdash that comes out of their mouths, but when your voting base is more easily duped than convinced that it was duped, the base will believe anything you tell it to believe.

Now, when all is said and done, maybe the down-ballot strategy will have spectacularly failed.  That's my hope.  But in the here and now, it's the best strategy the Democrats have.

Democrat politicians don't run to govern, represent, or lead; they run to acquire legislative power as taxpayer-funded activists.

Plan B(loomberg) Activated

Though it may seem this way, Bloomberg didn't just appear on the scene overnight.  The Democratic National Committee's and DMIC: Democrat Media Industrial Complex)'s Plan A was Joe Biden.  Biden is done, was never actually respected by Obama (Obama chose Biden for the same principle by which Trump chose Vice President Mike Pence: to allay the "newcomer" fears), and Plan B — Bloomberg — has been activated.  Plan C is Hillary Clinton.  Michelle Obama is already on deck for 2024 if she wants it.  If Biden were our father, grandfather, brother, or son, we'd do our damnedest to get him to a doctor to test his mental faculties.  If he refused, we'd probably seek a legal injunction to have him institutionalized (with due process and legal counsel).

I wish Biden no ill will, but the same guy whom adult-minded Americans would institutionalize would receive tens of millions of Democrat votes tomorrow against Trump, to run the largest economy and military in man's history.  We need a red flag law for Biden before he forgets to turn the oven off.

Democrats move in one direction, with one goal: elect Democrats, no matter what.  If the DNC believed that Sanders would win in Nov., the party would support him.  When I joke that Democrats would vote for Genghis Khan if he had a "D" after his name, people laugh — but no one ever argues it's not true.  To oust Trump, Democrats would drive into the eye of a Category 5 hurricane, followed by walking blindfolded on a field of active landmines.  I am convinced that the primitive disdain in the hearts of Democrats is more intense than the love they had for Obama in 2008.

Republicans, however, move in 1,000 directions, with confused goals (and I am exempting here Trump, who has proven that he knows how to beat the Democrats and DMIC at their own games).

All of you may have recently seen Democrat strategist James Carville on the DMIC: the Ragin' Cajun went off like a Mardi Gras confetti-launcher over the limerence shown to Bread Line Bernard.  That's because Carville is a winner (he was the lead strategist on Bill Clinton's 1992 presidential campaign), and winners recognize losers when they see them.

Trump is the greatest political genius since Sun Tzu.  He has made socialism/collectivism a kitchen table topic of conversation.  I doubt that socialism was this talked about even during World War 2, when we and the Allies fought and defeated the National Socialist German Worker's Party.  Socialism was talked about here and there under President Reagan, but once an issue reaches the kitchen table, like-minded but ignorant Americans get curious.  To lose a presidential election and have the party forever branded socialist would be major setbacks for the Democrats, for which they're mostly unprepared.

All the old-guard Democrats are feeling like the Romanovs and Duma provisional government in Russia before the Leninist Bolshevik coup.  The old guard have the new breed breathing down their necks. It's truly a Frankenstein effect: old-guard Democrats created this socialist monster, and our and Trump's win made it all spiral out of control.

Had we lost 2016, old-guard Democrats would have been able to manage the monster — here and there, give 'em what they want, shut 'em up, c'est la vie.

Enter Bloomberg.  By month's end, maybe early March, Obama will endorse Bloomberg, who has said he is willing to spend $1 billion in his presidential vanity project of futility.

Obama is the Democrats' Reagan, and all the loathsome Democrat chumps and shrews running for president are chasing the ghost of Obama.  But not even he will be able to save Bloomberg.  (Lest anyone misconstrue what I'm saying for hubris, don't any of you dare not vote; there is no imminent Electoral College landslide.)

GOP and voters: Don't let the Democrat man behind the curtain influence the down-ballot races.  Let's win resoundingly, despite Bloomberg's billions, at all levels: national, state, and local.
