Michael Bloomberg Discovers He Can’t Buy More Gun Control

Mark Robinson

[T]he $60 million Bloomberg spent to support Democrats in House races across the country gained the party nothing. Not only did no Republican incumbent lose a seat in the House of Representatives, the Democrats lost at least a dozen seats in the lower chamber to GOP challengers.

Even the $60 million Bloomberg spent pushing gun-control candidates through his organization Everytown for Gun Safety had little to no effect. This year saw a record for new gun ownership in America: Five million are now gun owners, with 40 percent of them women.

Bloomberg’s spokespeople did not return calls for comment, but one of his top political advisers, Kevin Sheekey, told the Associated Press last month: “At the end of the day, a win is a win and Joe Biden will take office in January and Donald Trump will leave. We feel quite good about … the end result.”

At the same time, there is no denying that Bloomberg’s Goliath attempts to conquer every level of American politics this year fell to scores of Davids across the country — including Mark Robinson.

“I chuckled to myself about this on more than one occasion,” Robinson said. “Michael Bloomberg lives in an ivory tower in one of the greatest cities in the world. This guy has billions of dollars and here he is trying to take out little old Mark Robinson. It really is bizarre and if you wrote this as a movie, nobody would believe it. But here we are.”

          Well mini mike might do better if the democRat Party takes Congress…
          Front and center for many people are Stimulas Checks. On one hand there is the sleazy cheating democRat Party united for $2000.00 Stimulus Checks and on the other hand is the disoriented Republican Party tightwads blocking $2000.00 and throwing scraps to the peasants.

          With a crucial election coming up in GA there is much concern for election fraud. And voters have seen Congressional Republicans do very little to support the POTUS and protect voters so why bother to go vote for cowardly tightwads when sleazy cheaters are dangling a $2000.00 carrot in front of a winning number of near broke voters?

          Well fed Republicans are acting like they are balancing their personal checkbooks instead of understanding you cannot do that when things are this far out of hand in America. Write them and tell them to shape up or take a back seat to democRats.

          As of Dec 24 more than 1.8 million ballots have been cast in Georgia’s Senate runoff races during early voting, Early voting is running about 6% behind the Nov 3rd numbers which DOES in fact bode well for the Republicans whom historically vote in person on election day…. We shall see indeed… AND hope for decent weather the first week of Jan, a freak ice storm (it happens) could throw this thing to the Dems and with Bill Gates trying to block the amount of sunlight that reaches the earth and trying to mess with global weather patterns “What COULD go wrong?”….

        Trump is in no way a amazing president, but he’s been pretty decent over all. I’d vote for him again. Assuming he doesn’t manage to pull of some sort of electoral trick-shot at the last moment. Which, knowing him, be might actually do. :p

          It’s not really a trick shot when the entire other team is cheating and the refs are allowing it.

      4. avatar Paul says:

        Do you really think that Biden or Trump are going to still be in shape to run in 2024? I just don’t see it happening, for either of them.

        If Rs can win one or both of the senate seats up for grabs in Georgia, I’ll feel good that the Dems will fail to win in 2024, no matter who the Rs run. Unless the Dems pull their heads out of their arses, and run a Tulsi Gabbard. I would have voted for her if she won the nomination. I would vote for her if she runs next time around.

        Who else do the Dems have? Bernie is yesterdays news. Pocahontas isn’t as old, but she’s still yesterday’s news. It’s Gabbard or a loss, IMO.

        They have bet the farm on Biden, and he’s only good for four years – if that.

        1. avatar UpInArms says:

          ” Unless the Dems pull their heads out of their arses, and run a Tulsi Gabbard ”

          No way. The Demonrats have made it abundantly clear they want nothing to do anymore with Tulsi. She knows it. If she runs in 2024 (and I’m betting she will) it will be on the Republican ticket. Don’t forget that you heard it here first.

      @MICHAEL A CROGNALE ……Who knows here is another scenario!

      Georgia County Cracks Dominion Vote-Switching Algorithm

      Based on the vote-flipping software of Dominion Voting Systems alone, Donald Trump won the 2020 election by a margin of 85 million votes to Joe Biden’s 72 million. That’s according to a forensic analysis conducted on a single Dominion machine in Ware County, Georgia. Since that is just the machine count, Biden’s true total would be even lower after discarding fraudulent mail-in ballots, votes from dead people and mafia-produced sweatshop ballots. The question now is whether the courts will be too discouraged by math to correct this grievous wrong that has been committed against America.

      The distrust in this past election is staggering. 97 percent of Trump voters – and I am one of them – believe the election was stolen through fraud. The evidence has been conclusive and overwhelming, from the 17,000+ people who voted from beyond the grave in Michigan to the miracle late-night ballot dumps that favored Biden by margins of 100,000 to zero.

      Democrats aren’t even attempting to explain away the fraud, which explains a lot. They’d love it if we could just get this pile of garbage certified and then hold an early swearing-in ceremony for Joe Biden. Chuck Schumer wants the Senate to start voting on Biden’s cabinet picks right now.

      But not so fast.

      Ware County managed to sequester a machine owned by Dominion Voting Systems – the shady election software and hardware company with direct ties to George Soros and Communist China. It was a fairly straightforward and simple analysis.

      To test the machine, they ran an equal number of Donald Trump and Joe Biden ballots through the Dominion machine. Every time, the machine returned the same result: Joe Biden won by 26%. The people running the test were so surprised by the result that they ran the test – again and again. Every single time, the equal number of Trump and Biden votes produced a 26% victory for Joe Biden.

      The way that the Dominion algorithm cranked out that result was by tabulating a Trump vote as 0.87 percent of a vote (87%). Every Joe Biden vote was tabulated as 1.13 percent of a vote (113%). Shaving 13 points off every Trump vote and adding 13 points to every Biden vote turned up a 26% Biden margin of victory every single time.

      If that ratio were to hold up nationwide, Trump would have carried the vote in a 54 to 46 landslide over Joe Biden, with a margin of 85 million to 72 million. Keep in mind, however, that this is just one machine used in one county in Georgia. Dominion systems were used in 28 states during the election, and examiners suspect that different machines probably used different algorithms, to try to make the fake result look more “organic.”

      Congressman Jody Hice (R-GA) was furious after the results of this forensic exam came out. He’s calling for a full audit of every Dominion machine in all 28 states. Now we understand the incredible rush that the Georgia Secretary of State has been in to “reset” the Dominion machines ahead of the January Senate runoff elections. Resetting the machines erases the forensic evidence that the fraud took place.

      Multiple videos of Dominion’s Vice President of Systems Strategy and Security, a guy named Eric Coomer, have now appeared online. The videos are training sessions with Eric Coomer, in which he shows election workers exactly how to switch vote totals on the machines. Coomer’s social media channels – before he took them all offline after the election – are riddled with anti-Trump profanities.

      Coomer was even recorded on a conference call with Antifa earlier this year. How do you even get that number to call in? You may not know what number to call, but Eric Coomer does! Here’s an exact quote from Coomer on that call:

      “Trump won’t win. I made f***ing sure of it.”

      Did Coomer make sure of it? It certainly looks that way, based on the forensic analysis of one of his machines.

      The Trump campaign’s legal team has also produced evidence that packets of American votes were sent over the internet to counting systems in Europe. Foreign-owned voting machines tabulating American votes on foreign soil – with an algorithm that flipped Trump votes to Joe Biden. Could the evidence be any more overwhelming at this point?

        Yeah, I believe a lot of stupid fraudulent crap happened this election.

        Alas, it appears that the Rs don’t have anyone competent to find and present the evidence in court.

          Guess the daily news is not your forte… Evidence has been presented to courts on every level from local to the SCOTUS and the courts have summarily dismissed 96% of them without ever hearing the case… The courts do not want to get involved it’s that simple.. And now Dominion (proper name that company) has felt empowered to attack those lawyers and disparage the witnesses whom all signed sworn affidavits under penalty of perjury …

    In the process of “winning” Bloomberg generated the biggest background check month in NICS history. How many of these new gun buyers are going to willingly hand over their newfound security? (though this is perhaps questionable due to lack of training)

    “”Last month was the busiest November on record for FBI background checks in the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, according to the Bureau’s month-by-month data. Background checks were up 40% from the prior November, with over 3.6 million checks performed throughout the month.”

And let’s not forget Hickenlooper from Colorado another gun control freak (but hey he IS pro pot)… John Hickenlooper, Former governor of Colorado: “Study after study shows that having a handgun, in most cases, makes you less safe, not more.” Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund and Victory Fund Spent More Than $3.8 Million in Arizona this Election, and 1.3 million in Colorado..

    Bloomberg like all of the Liberal leadership is and has been playing the Long Game to Control. The idea of a Sudden victory has never been in their playbook. They understand their Ideology requires an insidious (proceeding in a gradual, subtle way, but with harmful effects) path. Much as in the slow cooking of the frog in the pot. I began with the takeover of the Education system in the late 60’s and early 70’s. Indoctrinating Good Little Socialist/Liberals to believe in the Dogma of We know whats best for you because We care for you. The one thing about Tyranny the Liberals have learned from history is it’s much easier to convince people they want to be controlled, than it is to force it upon them. Once the have submitted their Will and realize the folly in doing so. The only way out requires a violent Overthrow of the Masters for which very few have a stomach. This tactic has been very successful even in Our own times. Look to Russia( formally the U.S.S.R.) China, North Korea and many other countries around the world. The citizens willing followed the path to Tyranny simply by believing their leaders had their best interests at heart and it would make for a better society. People have a natural instinct to believe the world can be made a better place even if it requires them to relinquish their own Will and follow the Masses. Our nation has been on this path for many decades as can be seen by where it stands today. If it is to remain a Nation of Free Willed People or a Nation of Subjects none can be sure. One will require Great Courage and a desire to Be Free by it’s citizens. While the other will only require Complacency and a willingness to become a Subject of others Control. Keep Your Powder Dry.
