At this week’s Democrat debate in Charleston, South Carolina, the alpha male candidate Michael Bloomberg bragged about using 100 million dollars to buy 21 Democrat Congressmen.
Speaking of his role in the 2018 midterm elections, Bloomberg said, “all of the new Democrats that came in, put Nancy Pelosi in charge, and gave Congress the ability to control this president – I bought them.”
Donald Trump’s claim that he was going to “drain the swamp” was fake and gay and an affront to the North American Wetlands Conservation Act. We need an alpha male like Bloomberg who doesn’t give a shit and will just openly BUY the swamp.
Reformist idealism is for suckers and wimps, and we need a president who is willing to go to Washington and openly bribe everyone and laugh about it like a gangsta.
With this pragmatic plan of action, Bloomberg is showing flagrant contempt for the entire system and all the nebbish sooks who believe in “democratic values.”
The American system is the Whore of Babylon, and what do you do with a whore? Do you romance her? No, of course not: you pay her to perform services.
Bloomberg grabs niggers off the streets and strip searches them, he forces sluts to have abortions, he savagely mocks trannies, he sexually humiliates women and pays them off, he uses illegal instagram bots and he hangs out with John Cougar Mellencamp and keeps referring to him as John Denver. He is the number one person who simply doesn’t care.
The bold Bloomberg strategy of embracing corruption directly and unapologetically is the kind of right-minded thinking we need to do whatever it is he’s planning to do.
Mike will get it done.
Irish Jewish leader will request Sinn Fein politicians be educated about antisemitism
Maurice Cohen said that he would be happy to meet Sinn Féin leader Mary Lou McDonald to discuss antisemitism after a scandal involving one of her party’s parliamentarians
The Jewish Chronicle
The Chairman of Ireland’s Jewish Representative Council has told the JC he will ask for Sinn Féin politicians to be educated about antisemitism after the Irish republican party leader expressed a willingness to meet the country’s Jewish community.
“I will have an agenda, as no doubt will Mary Lou McDonald,” Maurice Cohen said, referring to Sinn Féin’s leader.
“One of the items on mine will be to ask that politicians be educated on the IHRA working definition of antisemitism and that they adhere to these guidelines in all discourse.”
Chairman Maurice Cohen made the comment as Sinn Féin seeks to make amends after one of its newly elected parliamentarians, Réada Cronin, was found to have posted a string of antisemitic messages on social media.
Responding to questions on Thursday, Mary Lou McDonald said that Sinn Fein “condemned all racism and bigotry” and that she hoped to be able to meet the Jewish Representative Council to discuss the matter further.
Mr Cohen said that he was yet to hear directly from Sinn Féin since the scandal emerged, but that he expects to be contacted early next week about a prospective meeting.
He said: “Sinn Féin have categorically stated that they will brook no antisemitism whatsoever in this country. The community hopes and prays that they will adhere to that.”
Ms Cronin compared Israeli embassy staff to monkeys, said that Israel had taken “Nazism to a new level” and retweeted a post saying that Hitler was a pawn of a Rothschild-owned bank.
Ms Cronin has since apologised, calling the tweets “off-the-cuff”.
Speaking to the Irish Times on Monday, Maurice Cohen said that the Jewish Representative Council was planning to write to every member of the new Irish Dáil and Seanad, Ireland’s upper house, underlining the risk of antisemitic discourse in the public debate.
Mr Cohen said that he was planning to send copies of the IHRA’s working definition of antisemitism to all new members of the Dáil and the Senead, once it is elected at the end of March.
The Irish parliament, the Dáil, failed to elect a new Taoiseach on Thursday allowing for a period of 14 days in which negotiations will take place between the parties about securing enough support to form a government.
Sinn Fein staged an electoral earthquake in the polls on February 8, securing the highest number of first preference votes and coming in second in terms of seats behind the centre Fianna Fáil. Fine Gael, the centre-right party of the now former Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, came in third.

Campaign posters for Netanyahu and Gantz in the third Israeli electionQuiet has been restored in Israel’s southern communities after another round of tensions with the Palestinian Islamic Jihad who launched more than a hundred rockets into Israel following a Sunday incident on the Gaza-Israel border where the IDF used a bulldozer to drag the body of a terrorist that came there in an attempt to plant an explosive.
Responding to the recent indiscriminate rocket fire from the Gaza Strip, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu threatened Hamas, who controls the enclave, with the surprise of their lives if a spate of attacks launched from their territory didn’t come to an end.
“I am telling you as a prime minister, I don’t rush to war… but we are preparing for Hamas the surprise of their lives. I won’t say what it is, but it will be different from anything that came before”, he told Channel 20.
Hoping for a Change
Mkhaimer Abu Seada, a political analyst from Gaza, is hopeful that that will be Netanyahu’s last threat as the prime minister of Israel.
“Palestinians would very much like to see somebody else taking that office”, he said referring to the upcoming Israeli elections set to take place in early March. “He has been around for more than a decade creating a stalemate in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process and carrying on with his blockade policies”.
Israel imposed a blockade on the Gaza Strip in 2007 following a violent takeover of the Strip by Hamas that ended in the ouster of the enclave’s former government, officials from Fatah.
During his time in office, Netanyahu has led a fierce policy against Gaza that included two large military campaigns – Pillar of Defence in 2012 and Protective Edge in 2014, considered the deadliest in the decades-long confrontation between Israel and the Islamic group.
That’s why, a change of the premier, believes Abu Saeda, might bring a breath of fresh air to the Palestinians.
“Gantz is definitely a better person than Netanyahu, and if elected, he might be a better partner that would open a direct channel to the Palestinians and initiate a peace process”.
Although Blue and White’s political platform does mention direct talks with the Palestinians and backs a two-state solution to the conflict, it also supports the disarmament of Gaza, rejects the right of return of Palestinian refugees, emphasises Israel’s control over Jerusalem, and objects to the idea that the Jewish state will ever go back to its pre-1967 borders.
Gantz’s embrace of the peace plan that was introduced by US President Donald Trump at the end of January and that offered to extend Israeli sovereignty over big swathes of Palestinian land hasn’t helped to bolster the ex-chief of staff’s image as a fighter for peace either, says Abu Seada.
“Before Washington rolled out its plan, we were hopeful that Gantz would be different. But when he embraced it, it sent a bad signal to the Palestinians. After all, it seems that Gantz is not much different than the current premier”.
No Light at the End of the Tunnel?
Another Palestinian expert Hani Al Masri who is based in Ramallah agreed.
“Palestinians do not expect any positive outcome from the upcoming polls simply because Israel doesn’t have a real alternative. Their peace camp is dead and apart from Meretz [a left-wing party – ed.], nobody is really working towards a solution. Definitely not Gantz”.
According to recent polls, Meretz who merged with two centrist parties in order to pass the 3.25 percent threshold, is projected to get nine seats in the upcoming elections.
Together with Blue and White, who is one seat behind Likud gaining 34 seats in the 120 seat parliament, they’ll only have 43 seats, which means they will need the support of the Joint Arab List and Avigdor Lieberman’s Yisrael Beitenu to get the 61 seats needed to be able to form a government.
Given the long-time spat between Lieberman and the Arab parties, a scenario where both parties sit in the same centrist left-wing government is unlikely, especially given the former defence minister’s hawkish views on the resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
“This is why Palestinians should not count on Israeli politicians to bring about the change. We need to take matters into our own hands and fight Israel with other means available at our disposal. Although we have the right to use military resistance, I find it less effective because of Israel’s superiority. What we truly need is a popular resistance and that includes boycotting Israel and putting pressure on the international community to do the same”.
