Club Moves – Bloomberg is IN if Biden is OUT…

Well this is buckets of interesting.  Last year CTH anticipated Bloomberg would be one of the Club insiders positioned to take lead in the 2020 Club primary.  However, as time progressed Club board members seemed to shift Bloomberg aside in favor of Joe Biden. A proactive Rupert Murdoch hired Biden’s former chief-of-staff in preparation.

Unfortunately for the Club’s board, Biden is failing to launch.  The free range Moonbat coalition, aka the unsuspecting astroturf, are turning out to be more challenging to herd than the board anticipated. Their plot against installing Biden may succeed. This opens the club to reconsider Bloomberg’s prior presentation….

New York – Mike Bloomberg may still consider a run for the White House — particularly if touchy-feely Joe Biden decides to stay out of the race, according to a report.

After months of speculation, the former New York City mayor said last month that he would not seek the presidency, writing in a statement that he was “clear-eyed” about the obstacles to securing the nomination in the packed Democratic field.

But sources now tell Axios that the 77-year-old, who is worth $58 billion, might reconsider a centrist path if Biden, 76, is compromised by the accusations from two women of inappropriate touching.

A source told the news outlet that the race looked like “a bloody fight for the same slice of voters” between Biden and Bloomberg — before the former veep’s public displays of affection grabbed the spotlight.  (read more)

As previously shared, ultimately the ‘chosen one’ will come only with the Club’s approval. It’s an interesting dynamic to watch the board members negotiating.

The unofficial ‘chosen one‘, the intended party donor candidate, will not likely surface until April or May 2019. The DNC is predictable; it’s a club. It’s still seems too early for the anointed candidate to surface.  Planning and strategy is one of the key elements of the Democrat party.  It might seem weird at first, but the DNC club is not chaotic; and, from my perspective, that is their weakness. It makes them predictable.

The chosen-one would generally come into play immediately after the democrats have set down a larger trumpeted baseline. The chosen-one roll out would be designed to flow from the club’s baseline narrative. The ♦Club rarely, if ever, goes off script.

Here’s the way it looks so far:

  • Senator Ted Cruz was to 2016…. as Senator Elizabeth Warren is to 2020
  • ♦Governor Jeb Bush was to 2016 as….
  • Senator Marco Rubio was to 2016… as Senator Bernie Sanders is to 2020
  • Governor John Kasich was to 2016… as
  • Senator Lindsey Graham was to 2016 as… Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is to 2020
  • Governor Mike Huckabee was to 2016… as Senator Corey Booker is to 2020
  • Senator Rand Paul was to 2016…. as Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard is to 2020
  • Dr. Ben Carson was to 2016… as Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke is to 2020
  • Governor Chris Christie was to 2016 as… Governor J. Hickenlooper is to 2020
  • Governor Scott Walker was to 2016 as… Governor Jay Inslee is to 2020
  • Senator Rick Santorum was to 2016…. as Senator Sherrod Brown is to 2020
  • Governor George Pataki was to 2016 as….
  • Governor Rick Perry was to 2016…. as Senator Kamala Harris is to 2020
  • Governor Bobby Jindal was to 2016…. as Julian Castro is to 2020
  • Carly Fiorina was to 2016 as…. Senator Amy Klobuchar is to 2020
  • Governor Jim Gilmore was to 2016…

      I read that here (possibly you posted before?) and then noticed he made some noises last week …. very interesting.

      One thing I’d note: Biden and McAuliffe are both team Clinton. I would call Bloomberg a Clinton “ally” (last time he claimed he’d run if she didn’t . . .). Not sure what the current Clinton/Obama dynamic is at the moment.

            Bloomberg would be formidable, and that is an understatement:

            He’s a multi-deca-billionaire businessman, far richer than Trump. He’s a media mogul, with lots of friends in other media companies to cheerlead for him. He’s ridden in the Republican rodeo, so he knows both parties, like Trump does from his own cross-riding. He’s a Jev who would have enormous worldwide, e.g. Rothy, financial backing.

            Bloomberg has been, and would normally be satisfied to sit on, the kingmaker team. But these are desperate times for the globalists, so maybe he’s being called to run for king himself, as Nelson Rockefeller was called almost 60 years ago.

      McAuliffe has way too many of the wrong connections from 2016, and before. Connected to McCabe. Connected to Clinton. Connected to a corruption investigation that only exonerated him because of Virginia’s quite lax laws. Everything about McAuliffe oozes corruption. His skeletons are either dead or in witness protection. He’d never survive the primaries. Let alone Trump.

      The media and the Hollywood money may actually be coalescing around “Mayor Pete” the progressive gay mayor of South Bend. They love that he appears moderate, like Obama, that he’s low key, like Obama, that he’s smart and articulate, “like Obama,” love that they can sell him as moderate, temperate, the anti-no drama Trump. The guy is picking up steam AND money and I expect he’ll do well in debates. It remains to be seen who in the mix tries to take him out with something, but what? He’s the mayor of a what in many large states is a mid size “town,” not a city. His demeanor is certainly different than that of his Dem opponents, but his policy positions are the same–pro-abortion, anti-Electoral College, pro-immigration, etc.

      Keep in mind that 0bama created a massive rift within the Democrat party, by shunning the DNC (a whole-owned subsidiary of Clinton Crime Inc.) and creating his own parallel 0bama-centric Alinskyite organization, 0FA.

      Because of this, there may very well be TWO Chosen Ones, Biden (0bama loyalists) and McAuliffe (the Clintonati).

      0bama sat out last election and deferred to the DNC/Clinton Crime Inc. Completely. But after Clinton blew the election and 0bama’s legacy, it’s highly unlikely he will do that again. As it is, the 0bama cabal believe they are superior to Clinton Crime Inc., which they see as the gang that can’t shoot straight.

      We we are likely in for an epic showdown as the two factions battle for control of the Democrat Party through their Chosen puppets.

          The DNC only kept it together, by firing DWS, and saying to 3rd wing;
          DON’T do it! If you do, you will elect Trump. So, they DIDN’T blow up the convention, even tho they were pissed, to have it rubbed in their nose, that Hillary cheated Bernie.

          In 2020, I think we are gonna see a MAJOR rift, with the 3rd wing not happy with whatever choice the 2 factions of the old guard come up with.

            There is only an illusion of a possibility that one of these leftist upstarts who don’t know their proper place could become the nominee, and there need only be that illusion to keep their constituency engaged so they show up to vote while getting nothing in return yet again.

    “The father of Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg was a Marxist professor who spoke fondly of the Communist Manifesto and dedicated a significant portion of his academic career to the work of Italian Communist Party founder Antonio Gramsci, an associate of Vladimir Lenin.
    Joseph Buttigieg, who died in January at the age of 71, immigrated to the U.S. in the 1970s from Malta and in 1980 joined the University of Notre Dame faculty, where he taught modern European literature and literary theory. He supported an updated version of Marxism that jettisoned some of Marx and Engel’s more doctrinaire theories, though he was undoubtedly Marxist.
    People keep calling Beto “the white Obama,” but Pete is the one with a commie college-prof dad.

      This guy thinks he is the second coming of Jesus and he is going to bring the masses to his alter,

As Buttigieg told me in an interview Friday, “The left is rightly committed to a separation of church and state … but we need to not be afraid to invoke arguments that are convincing on why Christian faith is going to point you in a progressive direction.”

      Buttigieg criticized right-wing Christians for “saying so much about what Christ said so little about, and so little about what he said so much about.”

      Let’s parse this insightful formulation: “Saying so much about what Christ said so little about” applies to the religious right’s treatment of abortion as a litmus test for Christian faith, when in fact Jesus never mentioned the issue. That omission has not stopped many right-wing Christians from using Trump’s anti-abortion rights judicial appointments as the president’s “get of jail free card,” and license for them to support a leader who consistently behaves in a way that is antithetical to the teachings of Jesus.

      As to the religious right saying “so little about what (Jesus) said so much about,” Buttigieg made this observation: “When I think about where most of Scripture points me, it is toward defending the poor, and the immigrant, and the stranger, and the prisoner, and the outcast, and those who are left behind by the way society works. And what we have now is this exaltation of wealth and power, almost for its own sake, that in my reading of Scripture couldn’t be more contrary to the message of Christianity. So I think it’s really important to carry a message (to the public), knitting together a lot of groups that have already been on this path for some time, but giving them more visibility in the public sphere.”

      He’s alluding to a burgeoning Christian left led by pastors and writers like Jim Wallis, the Rev. William J. Barber II, Rachel Held Evans, the Rev. James Martin, Lisa Sharon Harper, Diana Butler Bass and many others. But nonconservative Christians generally do not receive the same level of news media attention as the religious right, despite their deep understanding of Scripture and thriving faith traditions. Because most journalists are secular, they can be gullible in looking to the religious right as arbiters of biblical interpretation, especially as it relates to hot-button cultural and political issues. Because of this, many Americans aren’t even aware of the rich tradition of progressive Christianity.”

  5. I keep seeing Biden accuser No. 1, Lucy Flores, described merely as a former one-term Nevada state legislator who ran unsuccessfully (actually, “lost in a landslide”) for lieutenant governor.

    Back in 2009, when Lucy Flores was still in law school at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, Glenn Cook of the daily Las Vegas Review-Journal wrote a series of columns on the Alice-in-Wonderland “bias incidents/hate crimes policy” developed by Christine Clark, the political correctness commissar and “Vice President for Diversity and Inclusion” at the aforementioned UNLV.

    (The ACLU has actually had to step in and go bat for world-renowned UNLV faculty threatened with loss of pay and sabbaticals for unknowingly “offending” gay students they didn’t even know were gay by — for instance — using the textbook example that gays may prefer to invest with shorter time horizons because they’re less likely to have children. Political Correctness runs amok at UNLV.)

    Among the other things Christine Clark was in trouble for back in 2009, Cook reported, was that “Clark wrongly authorized an employee of the Office of Diversity and Inclusion to lobby the Legislature on behalf of the university, without the approval of (University President David) Ashley, regents or (then-Chancellor Jim) Rogers. That employee, UNLV law student Lucy Flores, testified before lawmakers not on (higher education) system matters, but in favor of reforming the state’s K-12 curriculum to put a greater emphasis on multiculturalism — including concepts of ‘self-affirmation,’ ‘local responsiveness’ and ‘global inclusiveness’ — starting in the second grade.”

    I have no direct knowledge of Miss Flores’ sexual preference, though she is now 40 and (as the English obituary writers are wont to say) “she has never married.” We already knew Joe Biden demonstrates a jaw-dropping lack of discrimination in the females whom he chooses to surprise with his apparently uncontrollable urge to “get cuddly.” But this guy is living dangerously.

    The only two things I find surprising about Miss Flores’ report of her “Biden Incident” are a) that she waited four years (indicating she may indeed have been given the go-ahead by today’s more radical “Dump Biden” forces) and b) that this former gang member, who is no wilting violet, didn’t immediately break his jaw. — V.S.

    Now that Texas has been dangled as a possible albeit unlikely electoral pick-up for the Dems, they may not be able to resist looking to Texas for a candidate. Those 38 electoral votes (second only to California) may be just too tempting.

    As far as a campaigner and speaker, Castro does a remarkable Obama impersonation. He has the voice, the cadence and the mannerisms down perfectly. Close your eyes and listen to his speech announcing his candidacy. The similarities between the two are uncanny.

    Bloomberg is currently 77. However he is definitely a strong Dem supporter, and we know how much they like money:

    In June 2018, Bloomberg made plans to give $80 million to support Democratic congressional candidates in the 2018 election, with the goal of flipping control of the Republican-controlled House to Democrats. In a statement, Bloomberg said that Republican House leadership were “absolutely feckless” and had failed to govern responsibly. Bloomberg advisor Howard Wolfson was chosen to lead the effort, which is to target mainly suburban districts.[199] In October 2018, Bloomberg announced that he had changed his political party affiliation to Democrat, which he had previously been registered as prior to 2001.[200] By early October, Bloomberg had committed more than $100 million to returning the House and Senate to Democratic power, fueling speculation about a presidential run in 2020.[201] On March 5, 2019, Bloomberg announced that he will not run for president in 2020, instead encouraging the Democratic Party to “nominate a Democrat who will be in the strongest position to defeat Donald Trump”.[202]

    Me…you gotta admit that feckless is a good word to use with the RINO party. I can see him winning against Trump actually. He is not insane and not stupid. However he is a leftist at heart, guns, climate change, and on and on. Oh, and open borders? You betcha. Sounds a little like Jeb! in that regard.

    And of course he’ll do anything for power, call himself and Dem, or an R, or an Independent…whatever.

    If Biden or Bloomberg — or Beto or McCauliffe — is the “Chosen One,” the democrat party is fundamentally misreading its own electorate. (Shocker.) They can’t actually believe that they can push identity politics feverishly for 3 years, then browbeat the base into rallying behind the Straight White Guy that the donors like.

    They’re delusional if they think “All that matters is beating Trump!” will push their swampy SWG over the finish line. You’d think having to cheat their way through the last primary would be a clue. The sad thing is — they’ll get away with swampy way before they’ll get away with a straight white male.

    They have gone all in on White Patriarchy as the evil of our time. Anyone white or male must apologize, shut up, and defer simply for existing. In democrat woke-world, a candidate has no good answer to the question “as a champion of women and persons of color, wouldn’t you want to see one of your impressive colleagues at the topic of the ticket?” Ditto for supporters. Supporting a candidate without no identity-cred would cause unlivable guilt and cognitive dissonance for the modern resister.

    But the democrat party masters — for whom all of this is just sport and theatrics, anyway — are delusional and plain stupid. They think they’re in control. They think in the age of AOC, they need only send out creepy DiFi to vouch for creepy Biden and that settles that.

    No, no, a million times no. A Straight White Guy simply won’t make it through the primary this time — even if he’s not a creepy groper. Any of them and all of them ultimately will lose to a candidate who checks an identity box.

    Not to mention there has NEVER been a constituency anywhere for Mike Bloomberg.

    It’s honestly fun to watch the democrat swamp appear to misread the tea leaves so drastically. But it could be they’ve already set eyes on their sparkly next savior, at least as a back up. Maybe letting narcissists like Biden and Bloomberg flame out early is part of setting the stage. I think there’s a not-zero chance that Michelle Obama parachutes in sometime in the next couple months.

Nowadays, I think they’ve dumbed down their constituency so successfully that the basic socialist indoctrination is probably stuck in those skulls full of mush and there is no longer a reverse gear the Dem powers-that-be can shift.

    But speaking of interesting political alignments, whenever I want to know what the neo-cons are up to, I listen to Hugh Hewitt’s show on the way to work. Hewitt was reading the David Brooks column from the NYT about his Obama-like infatuation with this Mayor Pete guy from Indiana. I suspect that the Hewitt types know they can’t beat PDJT from within the party, so they’re looking at which demonrat is most closely aligned with their globalist policies, and Mayor Pete seems to be their guy. Of course, they could still ditch him if Bloomberg gets in, but they’ve got a neo-con crush on the mayor.

    On a side note, Dennis Prager also read form the Brooks piece, but Dennis eviscerated the article for how stupid it really is.

    I see Biden, Sanders, Schultz, Gabbard, Bloomberg and the governors as the currently viable candidates. The other candidates are all novelties and will fall away. Biden will also fall away now. Some or most of the governors will fall away.

    So the D money will have a choice of Schultz, Bloomberg or one of the governors. The D base will eventually grow to hate the money guys and maybe the governor too if he’s adjudged a bought commodity by D money. This sets up a backlash from the D base who will smell another Hillary-type 2016 corrupt coronation. A fragmented base spells trouble in the general, and I suspect Trump would clean their clock.

    The other side of it is Sanders/Gabbard. Either will have to take a Trump approach and attack the other candidates, who will have all the D money. They’ll depend on small donations and will face a withering media assault, which could help them much like it helped Trump win the 2016 nomination. But Trump would run the general in a more complex environment, if they win. His electoral strategy was brilliant in 2016, but it’d require major restructuring in 2020 against a more populist candidate, and not a sickly corruptocrat.
