New York billionaire Michael Bloomberg, who is deciding whether to launch a Democratic presidential bid, is pouring $100 million into an online advertising campaign attacking President Trump. The campaign, which targets voters in four general election battleground states - Arizona, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin - begins running on Friday, according to Bloomberg spokesman Jason Schechter. The former New York City mayor has already filed paperwork in at least two states to appear on presidential primary ballots.

We are already bombarded with anti-Trump messages 24/7 on television, on news sites, on radio news shows, on search engines like google and bing. We are over-saturated with the biased, disinformation campaign that has been going on since Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election. I am totally turned off by the cacophony, I have watched the teachers' unions pour many millions of dollars into continuous disinformation campaigns year after year. I have long since become deaf to all of it, and I can only hope and pray that most Americans have long since figured out that these blitzes of propaganda are destructive, dishonest, and offensive. Shame on Bloomberg. Shame on the DNC. Shame on the trial lawyers who are another enormous cash cow for the DNC. Shame on the teachers' unions who year after year choose adult jobs over children's' education. None of these people give a hoot about America or Americans. It is all about self-centered power grabbing.

How many books for under-privileged children could he actually help with $100 million? Or how he could give $10,000 to 10,000 people and help many change their lives by paying off credit cards, and other bills to help them get a leg up. Instead he wants to help advertising people, and TV and radio people, all because he doesn't like Republicans - it's not just Donald Trump folks, it's that policy is being established, and over 150 Federal judges are installed with lifetime appointments that have helped re-shape the Courts which were used by the Liberals and Progressives to shape policy that they knew they could never pass in Congress.

Democrats failed to present the public with any evidence that President Donald Trump should be impeached in their first round of public hearings this week, White House Senior Advisor for Strategy Tony Sayegh told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview on Saturday. Sayegh, who has been brought in by Trump to handle messaging in response to the Democrats’ partisan impeachment inquiry alongside former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, made the case that the Democrats’ three “star witnesses” on Wednesday and Friday failed to bolster the Democrats’ case for impeachment—and instead actually helped the president’s case and the GOP case against the inquiry.

In early May 2017, Hillary Clinton declared herself "an activist citizen and part of what she called The Resistance. Later that month, May 17, 2017, she officially launched a "political organization aimed at funding 'resistance' groups" to oppose and undermine the president. As early as June 2, 2016, Hillary had been questioning President Trump's "fitness to lead" and given a "tour-de-force assault on his record," calling him "too dangerous and unstable" to be president. She has spent the past three years declaring herself the real winner of the 2016 election and attacking the president's fitness for office. Looking at her pitiful illusions in multiple interviews,

On Thursday night, the underdog Cleveland Browns met the Pittsburgh Steelers. And the Browns showed up, beating the Steelers 21-7 in a pretty decisive victory. That wouldn’t be big news, normally. But at the end of the game, Browns defensive end Myles Garrett got into an altercation unlike anything I’ve ever seen in my decades of watching football. (snip) Where this became far different and more dangerous than your typical football scuffle is that, during the entanglement, Myles Garrett actually reared back and attempted to windmill-tomahawk slam the helmet he was holding on top of Mason Rudolph’s exposed skull with furious gusto.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi, amid the largely laughable testimony of the diplomats — can you say heavy on the hearsay, guys? — came out with her own largely laughable conclusion of all that hearsay testimony and said: President Donald Trump is guilty of bribery. She even found him guilty of confessing to bribery. Who knew Pelosi, at her advanced age, could perform so many contortions? This has to be the greatest acrobatic spin in political history. “The bribe,” she said, in a widely reported news conference on the heels of the first public impeachment hearing, “is to grant or withhold military assistance in return for a public statement

In Clinton’s view Britain’s first prime minister did not do enough to knock down “barriers for others.” The former Democratic presidential nominee did give a nod to Thatcher’s willingness to change the way she dressed, spoke and wore her hair, alluding to one of the most dramatic makeovers in 20th century politics.

Until a month or so ago, virtually no one outside of the seven circles of hell that is the State Department had heard of Marie Yovanovitch. Even the intrepid John Solomon had not heard of her until March of this year. He had interviewed Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko who told him that Yovanovitch gave him a "do not prosecute" list the first time he met with her. He was angered by her list which he justifiably saw it as interference in Ukraine's government. He felt she was meddling in their anti-corruption investigations by telling him who should not be investigated.

TAMPA — From the moment the NFL announced its hasty plan for a Colin Kaepernick workout this weekend, the questions have been flying. After all this time, why the sudden rush? Did some team request this? How many general managers will show up? Is this simply a ploy for atonement by the NFL? Yet, around here, a more important question needs to be asked: Can Kaepernick help the Buccaneers? It’s an interesting and legitimate question with, at this point, no clear answer. Kaepernick has not been in an NFL uniform in nearly three years so it’s worth wondering if his skills have atrophied.
