Democratic presidential hopeful Michael Bloomberg is thinking ahead. Should he win the election, his longtime live-in girlfriend would accompany him to the White House and become “de facto first lady.” Mr. Bloomberg revealed his thoughts during a wide-ranging interview Friday with “CBS Good Morning” co-host Gayle King. A network transcript reveals the details. “I want to get to a couple personal issues. Because you would be the first modern-day single president. But we all know in New York, you are not an eligible bachelor. Your significant other, Diana Taylor, is a very accomplished, highly respected, highly admired woman. Would she be our de facto first lady?

So the Democrats are offering us a "live in girlfriend" or a gay husband Chasten Buttigieg or Elizabeth Warren's gay husband. Nice. Of course it could be Dr. Biden who appears to promote finger sucking as a public display of affection. On the other hand, we could simply keep our dignified, well spoken current First Lady.

I don't think that will fly with the Ladies of this country. If this Lady is good enough to be his "de facto first lady", why won't he marry her. My guess is he is worried he might have to give up some of his fortune if they split some day. To me he comes across as a Nasty Man! And what's with her? 19 years of her life and he could just kick her to the curb and walk away. I would never vote for a man like him even if he were running as a Republican! I don't think the country is ready for his thumbing his nose at traditional marriage any more than they're ready for Two Gay guys in the White House!

I don't watch the morning shows (gag) but was interested to read how the host soft balled the question to Bloomberg, and notice she was quick to point out how learned and accomplished his live in girl friend is, as well as introducing the "de-facto First Lady" idea and phrase to the public. No Republican would have gotten such velvet glove treatment. Frankly, I wasn't especially comfortable with Donald Trump's third wife about whom I knew nothing, being first lady. And of course, the press didn't tell us anything good about her, we had to find out for ourselves that she is quite a special and accomplished woman. But whereas Donald Trump marries the woman he loves and has children, why won't Bloomberg marry Ms. Taylor? This might fly well in NYC, but I'm not sure about the rest of the country.

After 19 years of living together he doesn't trust her enough to risk half of his wealth. Kinda tells you what he feels is important. I think legally that the courts would consider his live in a defacto wife but I'm not a lawyer. She is a nice looking lady, has she done anything in the political world--curious?

Agree with #30. Doubting she would be with him if he was Mike Bloomberg, building super. He HAS to know that she's dazzled by the money rather than him. That being the case perhaps she feels that 19 years of her life is a fair trade.

I know virtually nothing about Mr Bloomberg and did not know Ms Taylor existed in his life; however, if BOTH wish to continue living as they have been, what business is it of anyone else ?

As the ShamWow Man says, “But wait - there’s more”… With us was a Washington insider whom I obviously cannot name and whose latest firework came straight from another source I cannot name. Michael Bloomberg has a Bermudan boyfriend, apparently a hunk, and Diane Taylor, his nice lady friend, has been a beard all along. I expressed surprise and asked the D.C. insider what, if any, proof he had. “His frequent weekly visits to Bermuda while he was mayor, the purpose of which was always kept secret, but rumored widely to be the result of a homosexual affair.” https://www.takimag.com/article/fireworks-galore/

This summer, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren tweeted, "The warning signs for another recession are flashing," and Joe Biden described the economy as “teetering on a recession.” But in the time since, the Democrats hoping to challenge and defeat President Trump in 2020 have been forced to mute their talking points about the economy. Friday’s November jobs numbers offered another example of why they cannot discuss the issue with any credibility — and also why their challenge to Trump is an uphill climb. The November jobs report showed that the U.S. economy remains strong, even as the rest of the world slows down.

Exactly two years ago Friday, President Trump fulfilled a campaign promise his three predecessors had failed to keep: he recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and ordered the U.S. Embassy in Israel moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Our new embassy opened in Jerusalem on May 14, 2018, on Israel’s Independence Day – 70 years after Israel declared its independence from Britain, just as the United States did in 1776. This important move was long overdue. Congress passed the Jerusalem Embassy Act in 1995 by big bipartisan majorities. The bill stated that “Jerusalem should be recognized as the capital of the State of Israel” and that the U.S. Embassy

Law enforcement apprehended or turned away 42,649 migrants at the southern border in November, according to preliminary data reviewed by Fox News -- a sixth month of declines that the administration is hailing as proof that the set of policies and initiatives to combat the border crisis is working. The numbers (33,510 apprehended and 9,139 deemed inadmissible) represented a decline of roughly six percent since October, and a drop of over 70 percent since the height of the crisis in May, when more than 144,000 migrants were encountered. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) data showed that the number of apprehensions of Central American family units has decreased

If Democrats and their media allies thought that the impeachment of President Trump would be his undoing, I've got bad news for them: it's actually undoing them. The Democrats' favorite (fake) news channel CNN is suffering from a three-year low in ratings. According to Disrn, CNN "reached a three-year low in ratings over the Thanksgiving holidays, averaging 643,000 primetime viewers. The news outlet also saw its worst week for viewers among the 25-43 demographic." In that group, CNN only pulled 138,000 viewers. That's pathetic. Fox News, on the other hand, "posted higher ratings than CNN and MSNBC combined, averaging nearly 2.2 million viewers

A Methodist church in Claremont unveiled a nativity scene Saturday night depicting Jesus, Mary and Joseph as refugees in cages, likening one of the most well-known images of the Christmas season to photos that have become synonymous with criticism of the Trump administration’s border separation policies. The display, which has stoked debate on the Facebook page of the church’s lead pastor, shows classic nativity figurines of Joseph and Mary in cages on either side of a cage containing the manger of Jesus. “We see this as, in some ways, the Holy Family standing in for the nameless families,” said the Rev. Karen Clark Ristine, the lead pastor at Claremont United Methodist Church.
Adam Schiff Has Jumped the Shark 31 replies
Posted by Pluperfect 12/8/2019 4:34:41 AM Post Reply
Many Americans remain nonplussed over revelations in the House Intelligence Committee’s Impeachment Inquiry Report that its chairman, Adam Schiff, not only secretly subpoenaed telephone records from President Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, but also obtained responses that detailed dates and lengths of phone calls to Trump attorney Jay Sekulow, ranking committee member Devin Nunes, and Hill reporter John Solomon. That Schiff self-disclosed this action as a rightful part of his committee’s information gathering is equally stunning. Every bit as bad, it appears that national telephone carriers AT&T and Verizon, who so tout their corporate concerns about subscriber privacy, responded to such obviously politicized demands without a whimper.

Is the ghost of John McCain haunting Senator Lindsey Graham? The South Carolina Senator went on Maria Bartiromo’s Fox News show, Sunday Morning Futures, to throw a wet blanket on conservatives’ dreams of a Senate trial that would get to the bottom of the plot against President Trump. He wants to leave all those rocks in place, turning nothing over to see what crawls out. Instead, once the House managers present their case, he wants a quick vote, presumably ending in dismissal of the case. In particular, Graham ruled out calling Adam Schiff to testify.

Pensacola, FL - The Saudi gunman who killed three people at the Pensacola naval base had apparently gone on Twitter shortly before the shooting to blast US support of Israel and accuse America of being anti-Muslim, a US official said Sunday as the FBI confirmed it is operating on the assumption the attack was an act of terrorism. Investigators are also trying to establish whether the killer, identified as 2nd Lt. Mohammed Alshamrani, 21, of the Royal Saudi Air Force, acted alone. Alshamrani, who was killed in the attack at a classroom building Friday, was undergoing flight training at Pensacola, where members of foreign militaries routinely receive instruction.

Shortly after California Sen. Kamala Harris announced she was ending her presidential bid, the question of depleting diversity in the Democratic field became a rallying point for several of the remaining minority candidates in their own campaigns. New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker in an impassioned speech on Thursday blasted the influence of money in politics as one of the reasons she dropped out. (Snip) However, several minority presidential candidates have complained that the structure of the Democratic National Committee's polling and fundraising rules to qualify for debates unduly makes it difficult to get the coveted primetime spots on stage needed

We all know that social media is bad for the soul. If someone is in, as they say, ‘a bad place’, a good friend wouldn’t send them onto Twitter. A good friend would tell them to switch off, put away the iPhone, and get some fresh air, away from the fervid online swamp of liking, blue-ticks, trolls, and ratios. George Conway needs that sort of friend right now. The poor man is clearly not well. His wife Kellyanne works for Donald Trump. He hates Trump and goes around saying how awful the 45th president is. There’s been all sorts of speculation as to the health of relationship,

Portland, Oregon, like many cities on the left coast, is struggling with a growing homelessness crisis. But what can they do about it? One idea that’s now being floated is to change the building codes so that all new structures (including private property, not just government buildings) include spaces for people to “rest” and “feel welcome and safe.” This understandably has prospective property owners concerned, since the wording is all quite vague and suggests that they will be forced to allow the homeless to camp in and around their buildings.

"What happened to Drudge?"A lot of people have been asking that question lately. If you talk to conservatives these days, you'll hear that Matt Drudge's eponymous news aggregation site has gone over to the dark side—that Matt's joined the anti-Trump resistance. And now, Rasmussen Reports, an arguably reputable polling operation, is calling Drudge out on Twitter, even suggesting that the site has been sold. The whole kerfuffle appears to have begun at the end of November, when the Bongino Report, touted as a Trump-friendly alternative to Drudge, launched. Bongino taunted Drudge with a pair of tweets:

If House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is a "practicing Catholic," then Sen. Elizabeth Warren is an American Indian. If she is a practicing Catholic, then one hopes that one day, she gets it right. You cannot be in fundamental disagreement with a fundamental doctrine of the Catholic Church and then wrap yourself in its vestments to proclaim you don't hate anybody.

As the undisputed star of the new film No Safe Spaces – the hit documentary on academia’s descent into Orwellian tyranny features a quick shot of a lawyer letter I wrote to some collegiate gulag apparatchiks – I wholeheartedly recommend that you go see it. Adam Carolla and Dennis Prager take you on a guided tour of the insanity and evil that has gripped academia, and it’s utterly terrifying. You need to see it not merely to gape at the freak show but to learn what’s coming for society as a whole. The dreary conformity factories that pretend to be providing our next generation of leaders with a higher education

Under this lax and political pontificate, almost everything in the Church looks arbitrary and slipshod, including canonizations, which Pope Francis has been using to remake the Church in his own liberal image. He quickly canonized Óscar Romero, whose cause stalled under previous pontificates, and two liberal popes not known for any exceptional sanctity, John XXIII and Paul VI. He canonized Pope John Paul II too, but that was a fait accompli. As much as Pope Francis might have liked to stop it, he couldn’t. (Observers noted his dourness at the canonization ceremony.) In his Peronista style, he has also thrown a few bones to semi-conservatives
