Bernie Sanders and Mike Bloomberg

Socialist Bernie Sanders likes to vacation in a fixer-upper wood cabin in Vermont, calling it his “summer camp.” Billionaire Mike Bloomberg’s summer camp, on the other hand, consists of a $10 million waterfront mansion in Bermuda and a $20 million estate in Southhampton. The presidential wannabes traded blows on Wednesday’s debate stage when Bloomberg suggested Sanders was a hypocrite posing as a humble socialist who in fact owned three homes.

Comments:

I'm a capitalist through and through, but the list of Bloomberg's homes, the (few) pictures, the information that he buys up neighboring properties and homes to expand his already mammoth mansions and acreage, it really makes it hard to think this guy could relate to most of us. Which reports say, he can't. It isn't only women that he disdains, he reportedly doesn't like anyone very much.

I don't have a problem with them owning property, I have a problem with them moving into our house; the WH. Think commie Bernie will share his homes with US? We would a be equal and he wants to take from the rich and give to the impoverished.

I’m with Mini Mike on this. Komrade Bernie has his houses (plural). I would be interested to know if he got any benefit from PDJT’s tax cuts, and if “accepted” them...and does he file taxes and claim all exemptions and deductions, or does he freely pay the additional taxes he wants everyone else to pay. Komrade is a hypocrite. Mini Mike lives in excess. But he HAS excess, and does not appear to be trying to take from everyone else.

The daily Mail has pictures of the so called summer camp. It is a lakefront property valued at approximately 700K hardly a camp.

The very rich, according to F.S. Fitzgerald: “They think, deep in their hearts, that they are better than we are because we had to discover the compensations and refuges of life for ourselves. Even when they enter deep into our world or sink below us, they still think that they are better than we are. They are different.”

What happens when evil people amass great wealth? They become Bloombergs and Sanders.

The White House announced Tuesday that President Trump is granting a full pardon to former San Francisco 49ers owner Edward DeBartolo Jr., who was convicted of failing to report a bribe to the former governor of Louisiana when he pleaded guilty in 1998. NFL greats including Jerry Rice, Ronnie Lott, Charles Haley, and Jim Brown were on hand at the White House, expressing their support for DeBartolo, who was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2016. "I take my hat off to Donald Trump for what he did," Rice said, crediting DeBartolo for his former team's success in the 1980s and 90s.

If the case against President Trump’s alleged abuses were “open and shut,” Daniel McCarthy wonders at Spectator USA, then why don’t “Democrats and the pundits . . . trust voters to be persuaded by this purportedly airtight case” and boot him from office come November? The answer: “The people hoping for the Senate to remove Trump are Democrats, but they aren’t democrats, and they think the American voting public already made the wrong choice in 2016.”

I do wish we would take them a smidgen less seriously when they turn out to be wrong — as they always do. I was slightly surprised when Greta Thunberg announced at Davos that we had eight years left to save the planet. As long as that? Admittedly, that’s four years less than Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who put it at 12, although, come to think of it, that was last January, so presumably she now thinks we’ve got 11 years left. But some doomsayers have been much less optimistic.

A series of questionable bookkeeping moves by the LGBT Network of Long Island — which oversees LI’s Pride Parade and is headed by prominent gay activist David Kilmnick and hubby Robert Vitelli — prompted reviews by the state Department of Health and Office of the State Comptroller, according to the agencies and documents obtained by The Post.

KQED News reported the three arrested were mothers Tolani King and Misty Cross and activist Jesse Turner, all of whom are being charged with obstructing a police officer in the course of their duties.

Former National Security Advisor John Bolton admitted Wednesday that his testimony in President Donald Trump’s recent impeachment proceedings involving Ukraine would have had no impact on the trial’s outcome even after sections of his upcoming book leaked attempting to convict the president in its final days. “People can argue about what I should have said and what I should have done,” Bolton said at Vanderbilt University Wednesday night during a forum with his predecessor Susan Rice, according to ABC News. “I will bet you a dollar right here and now my testimony would have made no difference to the ultimate outcome.”

Should Utah Sen. Mitt Romney attempt another shot at the White House — but this time on the independent ticket, with former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg as his running mate? The hypothetical Romney-Bloomberg ticket would give millions and millions of independent and moderate Democratic and Republican voters stuck in the middle a solid choice for president, which doesn’t exist now between democratic-socialist Bernie Sanders and current White House occupant and Twitter-flamethrower President Donald Trump. That’s what author, Maryland business executive and former U.S. Senate candidate Neal Simon wrote in his article he shared with Lee Lonsberry on KSL NewsRadio's show Live Mic.

On Tuesday, news broke that the Queen had banned Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from marketing the “Sussex Royal” brand. Friday morning, another story broke, saying that Meghan was whining about this because she and Harry had already invested money in selling themselves. Also on Friday, the Queen won and Meghan backed down. Queen Elizabeth comes from a generation that holds that you can’t eat your cake and have it. In other words, when you make choices, you have to take both the benefit and the burden of that choice. Meghan Markle, on the other hand, is a child of the Veruca Salt generation.

Los Angeles Times film critic Justin Chang said Friday on CNN that President Donald Trump mentioning the movie “Gone With the Wind” at his rally was a “racist dog whistle.” Chang said, “It’s kind of unfortunate, I think, that we have a president whose entire presidency is founded on xenophobia and of course his comments are not surprising coming from someone who likes to dehumanize people of other cultures and people of color. So none of that’s surprising.”He continued, “Well, that whole thing, “Gone with the Wind” and “Sunset Boulevard,” that all smacks of a dog whistle hearkening back to an earlier era

Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom said that medical doctors should be able to prescribe housing in the same way they prescribe medication to sick people Wednesday during his 2020 State of the State Address. “Health care and housing can no longer be divorced. After all, what’s more fundamental to a person’s well-being than a roof over their head?” Newsom asked during the address. “Doctors should be able to write prescriptions for housing the same way they do for insulin and antibiotics.” The crowd erupted in applause.

A newly discovered species of snail has been named after teen climate change activist Greta Thunberg, scientists announced in a new study published Thursday. The critter, which was discovered in Brunei on the island of Borneo, now has the scientific name Craspedotropis gretathunbergae. "The newly described snail belongs to the so-called caenogastropods, a group of land snails known to be sensitive to drought, temperature extremes and forest degradation," snail expert and study lead author Menno Schilthuizen said in a statement. The tiny mollusk, which is about 2 millimeters in size, was discovered by citizen-scientists from the tour group Taxon Expeditions

NEW ORLEANS—Standing in line at the hardware store on the edge of the French Quarter one December Monday, I overheard the cashier talking to a regular customer about manhole covers that had exploded just before dawn that morning a couple of blocks away. The metal discs had burst into buildings and crashed into the underside of a car, which in turn caught fire. Power outages and evacuations had ensued. This was just the latest addition to a cluster of troubling events. In the previous few days, a turbine powering the low-lying city’s storm-drainage system had also exploded, unrelated water-main ruptures had flooded neighborhoods on opposite sides of town,

Hollywood legend Clint Eastwood appeared to throw his support behind former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg for president. “The best thing we could do is just get Mike Bloomberg in there,” the 89-year-old said in a profile published last week. Eastwood expressed support for “certain things” President Trump has done but isn’t a fan of how divided politics has become. “The politics has gotten so ornery,” he said as he hunched his shoulders during an interview with the Wall Street Journal's Tunku Varadarajan. Eastwood said he wished Trump would conduct himself “in a more genteel way, without tweeting and calling people names.

Mr. Grenell has also requested the intelligence behind the classified briefing last week before the House Intelligence Committee where officials told lawmakers that Russia was interfering in November’s presidential election

A former governor of Massachusetts is offering himself as a Republican alternative to President Donald Trump. No, it’s not Mitt Romney. Bill Weld has no illusions about winning the GOP nomination but says he’s running because it’s time for somebody to stand up and plant a flag. “The flag is decency. The flag is integrity. It’s not an issue. It’s not free trade,” he told the Deseret News and KSL editorial boards Friday during a campaign stop in Utah. Weld was scheduled to tour the Latter-day Saint Humanitarian Center and visit Utah Valley University. Weld sees Utah among the top three states (behind Vermont, ahead of Massachusetts) where he
