Bloomberg Implies Voters In 2016 Were
Wrong To Rebel Against ‘Intelligentsia’

Original Article

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg explained in an interview with “60 Minutes” why he believes America will choose him over President Donald Trump this fall by characterizing those who swept Trump into office as mounting a “revolution” against the educated elite. “A few years ago there was a revolution against the intelligentsia,” Bloomberg told CBS’ Scott Pelley. “People said, ‘you know, those people, particularly on the coasts, are trying to tell us what to do.’ They wanted a change. That explains Donald Trump. Now, people seem to have changed. This cycle, people want stability.”

Well, Mini-Mike, most of us people just want to make our own decisions, not be told how to live our lives by others...

Hillary said something like this at Davos a few years ago. It amazing how parochial the mentality of the Globalist elites is trapped in their echo chamber. These people cannot be allowed to keep governing the working Americans they barely know.

He can't REALLY believe that 63 million+ people in 'Fly Over' country are ready to dump Trump and turn to the so-called elite ''intelligentsia'' on the coasts to save us and the country??? What an ass.

O.K. I have a master's degree and I inherited a love of learning from my grandparents who, despite never finishing high school, never stopped reading and learning their entire lives. I consider myself intelligent but I am not and never will buy into this idea of intelligentsia. The people I have met who consider themselves intelligentsia are to a man (or woman) haughty and hold average hard working people in contempt.

"will guide us through the tough times particularly day one" Yeah, right. Day one will ban Big Gulps federally. Thanks Mike. That proves your "managerial smarts". Oops. It actually proves "you know, those people, particularly on the coasts, are trying to tell us what to do". Yes we want stability, to continue on the paths that Trump has set for the Country; freedom, respect for all, belief in American exceptionalism and American goodness, respect for religion, lower taxes, abundant good jobs, less government regulation, available and low priced energy, a strong military, a confidant and America First foreign posture, fair trade deals, destruction or collapse of terrorists and bad actors, justices that follow the law and not try to make it, sane environmental policy, smaller federal government, a bureaucracy accountable to We the People, the media exposed and brought to accountability, the dems reduced to buffoonery, etc.. We will get NONE of the above from ANY dem. In fact, we will get the opposite as demonstrated under BO.

He's right. I want stability in the 3rd branch of the government. I want to know that Obambi and Clinton judges creating laws and policies from the bench will not stand and are quickly overturned. And that songle low circuit judges no longer hae the ability to issue worldwide dictates. I want to know there is stablity in taxes and not constantly increasing. I want crime addressed and not pick and choose laws to follow. I want stabilty at the border. I want the chaos of Democrats in the House and their whims about impachment eliminated.

Bloomberg is pitiful! He thinks HE is the educated elite. As long as he is considered an elite, he doesn't care about the educated part. If he has anything to say, he should get Judith Sheindlin (a frequent spokesman) to say it for him. Besides, she would make a far better candidate for president than arrogant Rich Boy does.

Most of the "intelligentsia" is so freaking against the average American that they need to be rebelled against. And if they keep it up, things could go past the ballot box rebellion to a more serious and permanent rebellion.

Talk about an elitist pig! Words can't begin to describe this despicable creep and how he views the average American. Example, take your average truck driver, or nurse, or construction worker who didn't have the opportunity to go to an ivy league college that his parents got him into. They work hard to support their family and have gratitude for their blessings and love their country. They teach their children right from wrong and they don't tell their pregnant daughter to kill it. Those two words perfectly define his character and what he represents.

Speaking as one who has lived under Nanny Bloomberg, it is his way or the highway because of his "extreme intelligence",so beware before you fall for him. He bought his way into the Mayoralty, bought his way into the until then verboten 3rd term (blocked Guilianni's attempt to dow so), didn't take office until January while Rudy did all the hard work after 9/11 AND DID NOT IMPROVE THE SCHOOL SYSTEM. He also bought off the Rev. Al, who made not a peep during Blommberg's term. Who says money doesn't buy happiness?

Well Mike, People in America took a look at what the so called “intelligentsia” has done to our country and decided that you and your ilk have created every problem we have. Then you tell us that you can fix it but you just create more problems, so we decided to elect a problem solver. It’s working out pretty well so we’ll probably keep him in November.

What mini Mike is implying is that the so-called “Deplorables” who voted for President Trump have now reconsidered and are pleased as punch to elect him and subscribe to the leftist and liberal Democrat political agenda. That just shows how out of touch this arrogant New York City billionaire is with the “Deplorables” across the USA.

Mayor Big Gulp, an ivory tower snob who thinks himself wise, wants to force us proles to live the predictable "905" kind of life he imagines for us. Whatever he thinks is unhealthy for us, whether it's large sugared sodas or our home defense firearms, he wants to take away from us for our own good. He knows what's good. (It's Bermuda.) Bloomberg is fooling himself if he thinks he could beat Trump mano a mano in November, absent truly massive Democrat cheating (which in any case I am certain is being prepared). I'm more concerned about Bloomberg's (and Soros's and others) furtive seeding of the campaigns of real radicals in district attorneys and state's attorneys offices, undermining the rule of law by electing the philosophically lawless. As this underhanded financing commences, the shell corporations funding the ads should be tracked to their sources and reported politically, since it's a political story. Leftist nabobs' meddling in our elections by spreading untruths and half truths presents a real and present danger to the Republic.

Surely, Mike knows how to run your life better than YOU do. He's another liberal jackass who, in his opinion, should be making your decisions for you because you are so stupid and he is so smart.

I have many friends who have PhD degrees in various subjects. I have a Master's in engineering. I also have freinds who are blue collar, factory workers, too. "The Intelligentsia" is a chilling term. The people who deem themselves part of this isolated group of NE/Left Coast folks are DANGEROUS. I may have the education, but I do revere "the average American", and I have worked with them since HS, initially in manual labor jobs, later in engineering jobs. I never looked down on them, unless an individual was just an "a-hole", which are more numerous the closer you get to the "Intelligentsia". Nope, stay away from these overbearing fools. I'll take my practical friends, many with a PhD and who can fix a car, or plumb a house, etc.

Today's intelligentsia is the illiterate of the 21 century. So far our founding fathers have outsmarted America's illiterates. - Gavin Nascimento, 1928 "The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read or write, but those who cannot unlearn the many lies that they have been conditioned to believe, and not seek out the hidden knowledge that they have been conditioned to reject.” Conditioned to believe by the Marxist Communist democrats and Rino's who's sole efforts is to destroy America from within with the help of their brainwashed masses starting in pre-k through 12 years government run Marxist Communist schools. Then higher education universities controlled by Marxist Communist educators finish the job of destroying their minds.

Every time I hear a word like "intelligentsia" or 'the masses', I am reminded of Soviet propaganda from years ago. Those are the kind of terms that they used. The couple of people that I used to work with that considered themselves members of the "intelligentsia" were universally recognized by everyone else as being hopelessly inept, arrogant, and unable to grasp what goes on in the real world.

It’s Time for Elizabeth Warren to Drop Out 27 replies

Elizabeth Warren may not even win her own state tomorrow. Though a recent Boston Globe/WBZ TV/Suffolk University poll shows Warren neck-and-neck with Bernie Sanders in Massachusetts, FiveThirtyEight’s polling average shows Bernie Sanders with a five-point lead overall, and Warren’s lack of an obvious lead does not portend great things for her candidacy. Second place would be an ignominious result for Warren, and yet it would be her highest finish of the primary. Massachusetts remains the only Super Tuesday state that Warren could feasibly win. There is one way for the senator to preserve her dignity while advancing the progressive cause she espouses,

Last month, the delayed results of the Iowa caucuses caused a crisis within the political world. Fundraising boosts were lost. Momentum was not enjoyed. It did not seem like democracy’s best week. If the measure of a successful election were only how quickly the results are released, then California would be a disaster. But that’s not how election officials in the state see it as they prepare for the primary election on Tuesday, or Super Tuesday, when California and 13 other states vote. They’re focused on accuracy over speed. “We prioritize the right to vote and election security over rushing the vote count,”

Washington - About a third of the delegates needed to secure the Democratic presidential nomination are up for grabs in the voting bonanza known as Super Tuesday. To put it in perspective, there were 155 pledged delegates available in the race's first four contests, which were the obsession of the candidates, voters, pundits and political prognosticators for the month of February. On Super Tuesday, 1,344 delegates are for the taking – as well as 13 delegates representing Americans abroad, who have a week to vote beginning Tuesday. If a candidate can secure 1,991 or more of the 3,979 candidates available in all the primary contests

Disease is bad, but coronavirus has some positive aspects. It has exposed the frailty of the Communist Chinese regime, which reportedly is now sending some of the one million Uyghurs they have been holding in concentration camps to factories that have been vacated on account of the virus. No doubt Tom Friedman and other Democratic advocates for the Communist regime will hail this as one more sign of the superiority of autocratic states. Most Americans, happily, don’t see it that way. Gallup finds that for the first time in 13 years, most Americans think the U.S., not China, is the world’s leading economic power. They are right, of course, and someday

Despite a deluge of debate-night gaffes and sagging poll numbers, Joe Biden is poised to take on Bernie Sanders virtually head to head on Super Tuesday — thanks in large part to a Democratic Party establishment that fears having the socialist Sanders atop its 2020 ticket, insiders said Monday. Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Amy Klobuchar suspended their campaigns on Sunday and Monday, respectively, and said they would endorse fellow moderate Biden, in a last-ditch effort to stop the Vermont senator, who appeared to be steam-rolling toward big wins in delegate-rich states like California and Texas.

Bernie Sanders‘ hard-left sympathies just keep bubbling up like an overheated pot of red stew. He announced this past week his $1.5 trillion plan for “universal” free child care. Even the “rich” would qualify for it. Would stay-at-home parents get any help? You are such a foolish child. The Vermont socialist’s plan goes beyond even Elizabeth Warren’s and Pete Buttigieg’s means-tested schemes, which would allegedly cost taxpayers “only” $700 billion. Speaking of Mayor Pete, he welcomed a 9-year-old boy on stage to “come out” and identify as homosexual. Not every Marxist assault on our way of life involves tax-and-spend economics.

Bernie Sanders just lost his first primary of 2020. He’ll lose a few more on Tuesday. But as of now, in terms of delegates and polling alike, Bernie Sanders remains the Democratic front-runner. And Joe Biden has wound up, ironically, not as the frontrunner but as the ‘Stop Bernie!’ candidate. South Carolina was Biden’s first primary win in any of the presidential races he’s ever run, which stretch back to 1988. He’s had his eye on the White House for a very long time, and voters have consistently found other Democrats more compelling — other Democrats like Michael Dukakis, not just other Democrats like Barack Obama.

In fact, he appears to have overperformed against even the most optimistic polls, coming in dangerously close to the 50% mark.

Former Bill Clinton strategist Paul Begala thinks President Trump is going to swap running mates in 2020. The CNN political analyst made the prediction during a Monday panel event at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s annual conference. Begala, who was a chief strategist during Clinton’s 1992 campaign, said he thinks Pence will be replaced as vice president on Trump's ticket with Nikki Haley, his former U.N. ambassador. “This is not a prediction. It’s a certainty,” Begala said. “On Thursday, July 16 — that’s the date the Democrat gives her or his acceptance address — on that day, to interrupt that narrative, Donald Trump will call a press conference at Mar-a-Lago."
