All the talks about the wealth tax because of the so called super rich. But a lot of it is what I would call "fake rich". It's nothing more than asset bubbles. All these people don't have that kind of money that is being hyped up.

Jeff Bezos doesn't have 130Bil. It's just paper money. If the FED stops printing, that 130 could be about 50B at best.

He may be on Fox but he's one of the best in the business and doesn't hold punches, no matter the party.

Elizabeth Warren's candidacy is in 'big trouble,' says Chris Stirewalt.

She scared the bajeebas out of people and having the personality of a mop doesn't help.

Cmyx6 made a thread, but I can't find it.

Anyway.
It's coming from the NYT, so a grain of salt at the ready.

Bloomberg preparing to enter presidential race: NYT
https://thehill.com/homenews/campaig...mpression=true

If he does, after saying NO WAY, then I think it's clear he was approached by nervous dnc personnel. Maybe begged him?

I just saw this on the news. Popcorn anyone? Still waiting for The swoop. Dems know they don’t have a viable candidate.

50B is still a shitload of FIAT. Those guys/gals have plenty in metals as plan B as well.

It's on CNBC so maybe the story got some meat on it. Follow the money. Maybe the DNC is really freaked out by Warren. And nobody gives Biden a chance lols.

Just found out Bloomberg is 77 year old. Can't they find some younger dude?

How deflating must it feel for the remaining dems?

Old, wealthy white man. Millennials and the Junior Antifa crowd will jump up and down with glee. I just can't see too much excitement for Bloom. Not to say he couldn't be their best hope.

I'm hoping it moves the focus away from the "elect me and everything will be FREE!" ledge.

That rap is already on him. Plus he was the "stop & frisk" proponent while mayor and there is sentiment there too among folks of color.

Biden is the moderate. He's not looking too good; Rudy's ploy is working. The race needs a moderate candidate.

Yep.
Biden, imo, has a wave of bad building and it can't be stopped.

Bloomberg may be attractive, at this point, but he won't get it done.
Hate to bring HER up but yesterday she tossed another swoop scrap.
"I've always run very, very slow"

Is what it is. Dems have a real problem on their hands.

I'm not a fan of what Bloomberg has become over the last couple decades, but if he runs on the Dem ticket - he will beat Trump.

Only if he can secure the nomination. There's a strong hard left contingent that will fight against that happening.

Maybe someone else can find and bump the Bloomberg thread. I'm blind or it's gone.

Camp Biden can't be stoked about Bloomberg. Someone got in his ear and convinced him to run. 22 years ago he said he was too old to run for President. Interesting.

I agree.

I know he is a huge anti-gunner. I don't know if that knocks some dems off the rails. Really we (me) don't know if this could be an issue. Never been tested in a Presidential election. Could be a wild card if it gets traction.

I certainly can't see any Repubs defecting to the Dems bc of this issue.

Ok, she's turtle food.

Warren: Yes, I'd Suspend All Deportations to Enforce My Agenda.

This is definitely a surprise. I think businesses are freaking out about Warren and Biden is probably too old and hasn't shown any life. She seems to have forgotten the quote "American businesses are businesses". Kind of like don't mess with the mafia.

I don't think there was a more effective counterpoint to Warren, whether you agree with it or not. Me personally, tribalism is in the DNA of everybody. If well fed, it's kept under control. See how he does if he's starved for a few days :-)

FYI, "tribalism" may appear to be a reference to her "Native American" claim, but I think he was using "tribalism" as something else.

Maybe tribalism is just in her DNA

This is a slippery slope. Give them an inch and they'll take a mile.

First they'll come for the billionaires and tell the rest of society they have nothing to worry about. Next they'll be knocking on our door.
