Mike Bloomberg: Those Uneducated
Midwest Rubes Are Just
Too Stupid for Trans Bathrooms

Original Article

Back in 2016, former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg made elitist and demeaning comments about Midwestern rubes who are too uneducated to support transgender bathroom access. The remarks, which resurfaced on Friday, illustrate the patronizing attitude many pro-transgender activists have toward those who dare to disagree with the view that gender identity overrides biological sex. Ironically, transgender activists were triggered by how the former mayor insulted the Midwesterners who disagree with them. Speaking to an audience at Oxford University and addressing the Brexit vote, Bloomberg said, "We, the intelligentsia, the people who could make it into this room, we believe a lot of things in terms of equality

In America we are all “the intelligentsia.” That’s the whole point. A smart boy like Bloomberg ought to know that.

The true mark of a Socialist is that they know what’s best for you. Isn’t that right Mini Mike?

Typical little tyrant with a superiority complex. He is not very intelligent at all if he thinks insulting voters is the way to win. His attitude about the elite knowing what's best for us is backwards thinking. That is regressive ideology going back to the days when people were ruled by kings, emperors and (more recently) dictators who tell the people how they must live without freedom to choose their own destinies. It is that kind of thinking that our Founders fought to get away from. They wanted to create a land where we would be free and all equal under the law. Btw, Bloomie, equality does not mean people with mental illness (gender dysphoria) should be allowed to use bathrooms reserved for the opposite sex.

This guy is such a phony. He is a tyrant and a liar. Terms (focus tested) like "gun safety" for confiscation of guns" and "women's reproductive rights" for "abortion up to the moment of birth". We are not stupid and we also will not let this happen. Mobilize America and vote our every single lying Democrat across this great nation.

We have had to deal with Nanny Bloomberg, a man who inherited the winning streak in NYC initiated by Guilianni and who, to a good extent, ran the City well. But we have also had to deal with Bloomberg thinking he knows best on any and all, and some of the alls are sizes of sodas, kinds of straws, on and on. Just THINK what he could do on a national level as he cynically (and it appears dishonestly culling others ideas verbatim as his own) and financially tries to buy himself the Presidency.

Pete Buttigieg, Interior Decorator? 8 replies
Posted by Pluperfect 2/10/2020 4:24:45 AM Post Reply
Joe Biden’s hard-hitting new ad targeting Pete Buttigieg is drawing a lot of attention, in part because a number of commentators–Ann Althouse is one–detect a tinge of homophobia. See if you can spot it:(Snip for video)To me, the ad is an appropriate attack on Buttigieg’s obvious lack of experience. I would criticize it for grossly exaggerating Biden’s own importance; throughout his political career, he has been a mediocrity at best. The alleged homophobia consists of the ad’s repeated use of the word “decorative” (also “colorfully”) in describing Buttigieg’s achievements as Mayor of South Bend. It got by me, but maybe there are dogs out there who will hear a whistle.
Federal Witch Hunt Prosecutors Seek

There are new major developments in the case against three-star General Michael Flynn. The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Washington has proposed delaying "a number of approaching deadlines," Fox News reports, "that would ultimately make his sentencing unlikely" on February 27, as was the original plan. The prosecutors conducting the witch hunt against one of America's most heroic and important generals of the last few decades want Gen. Flynn's former attorneys to testify against him. They argue that the general waived his attorney-client privileges in his communications with Covington & Burling by arguing that he received ineffective assistance from them.

Friday Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman was escorted from the White House where he had served on the National Security Council. His twin brother, Lt. Col. Yevgeny Vindman, was also dismissed from the NSC. Alexander had testified against President Trump in the House impeachment proceedings. He had listened in on the President’s telephone call with Ukrainian President Zelensky and testified that Trump had abused his office by withholding aid to the Ukraine until it announced investigations of his political opponents. Reportedly Alexander is believed to be the primary source of information for alleged whistleblower Eric Ciaramella. Although Yevgeny did not testify, there are unconfirmed reports

Nancy Pelosi looked like a malfunctioning Stepford wife as she sat behind President Trump during his State of the Union Address last week. Her lower face twitched, she muttered to herself, shook her head, smiled inappropriately, gazed around, chewed her lip or remained glued to her seat during standing ovations in honor of special guests. It was a bizarre enough performance before she rose to her feet and dramatically ripped up her copy of the president’s speech in what will go down in history as the most unseemly display of partisanship in this partisan era.

Iain Murray grew up reading and writing by candlelight, not because he lived in premodern times but because he lived under democratic socialism. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont and other contemporary American advocates of democratic socialism lean heavily on the democratic part, which is at least in part a matter of marketing. To take their talk of democratic principle seriously requires forgetfulness and credulousness: During the last great uprising of democratic socialism in the English-speaking world — in the United Kingdom in the 1970s, where young Iain Murray, now a fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, was doing his homework by the light of coals and candles —

The White House on Sunday unveiled a $4.8 trillion budget proposal that would slash spending dramatically on foreign aid and social safety nets, while including $2 billion for a southern border wall and substantially boosting funding to NASA, the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Department of Homeland Security. Fox News has confirmed the details of the budget, which The Wall Street Journal first reported. The package, set to be formally announced on Monday, as-is stood little chance of passage in the House of Representatives, which the Democrats have controlled. Still, it served as a signal of the president's priorities as Republicans

A gust of 209 mph was recorded atop a California peak on Sunday, a potential record that wowed forecasters monitoring a cold storm moving south through the state. The blast of wind was captured around 7:45 a.m. by an instrument at 9,186 feet on Kirkwood Mountain south of Lake Tahoe, said National Weather Service forecaster Alex Hoon. He and his colleagues at the NWS office in Reno, Nevada watched in surprise as wind speeds across the crest of the Sierra Nevada hit 150 mph and kept rising. “It went up and up,” Hoon said. It could take months for state climatologists to verify the record, he said.

President Donald Trump tweeted earlier what appeared to be a rejection of the long-debated plans for the federal site about 100 miles northwest of Las Vegas, an abrupt reversal of his administration’s policy. “Nevada, I hear you on Yucca Mountain and my Administration will RESPECT you! Congress and previous Administrations have long failed to find lasting solutions — my Administration is committed to exploring innovative approaches — I’m confident we can get it done!” the president tweeted Thursday evening.

Well, it is over. Trump won, Biden lost. No, not the Presidential race… In a blow to pietists the world over, who believe devoutly in the power of prayer, President Trump was impeached despite Nancy Pelosi’s supplications on his behalf. I don’t meant to damn her for faint prayers, but all her genuflections failed to sway the Heavens Above.

Officials confirmed that Trump and national security adviser Robert O’Brien have cut 70 positions inherited from former President Barack Obama, who had fattened the staff to 200. Many were loaners from other agencies and have been sent back. Others left government work.

The Oscars 2020 proved the cement shoes for Netflix’s “The Irishman.” The downturn began on Jan. 6, when viewers tuned into the 2020 Golden Globe Awards expecting to hear a few familiar names: Marty, Pesci or perhaps Pacino. The Hollywood icons were seated at a table smack-dab down front, stage right, so it would be easy for the living legends to take the stage at the Beverly Hilton Hotel quickly when they inevitably won. But those seats would only become warmer and warmer as the night went on, because instead we heard different people called up: Sam Mendes, Brad Pitt and, most improbably, “1917.”

The 30-year-old was asked by one of her followers to discuss the benefits of a shorter work week when she misspoke and referred to 'Milton Keynes'. Ocasio-Cortez later said she had confused a British economist, John Maynard Keynes, with Milton Friedman, who won the 1976 Nobel Prize. John Maynard Keynes—who she intended to refer to—theorized that government spending was linked to economic growth. He was an advocate for increased government expenditures

Joe Biden brought his “No Malarkey” tour to a New Hampshire debate stage on Friday night. But in promising to tell the truth, he accidentally exposed his own doleful (or I should say, Bob Dole-ful) prospects in Tuesday’s opening-gun primary. In his first words of the debate—the moment when candidates are usually the most scripted—Biden confessed, “I took a hit in Iowa and I’ll probably take a hit here.” It was a novel campaign strategy; few candidates ever say, “Vote for me because I’m going to lose here.” If his comments were a brief misstep in an otherwise smooth debate, it would have been one thing.
