Michael Bloomberg will run as a Democrat in 2020!

Michael Bloomberg will run as a Democrat in 2020!

Mutli-Billionaire business owner, and former GOP Mayor of NYC is now registered as a Democrat following 4.5 years as an Independent, according to his Instagram post Wednesday morning. Twitter begone.


Mayor Bloomberg is a business owner, and financial wizard, the like of those who don’t need to cheat the New York State tax system, create unethical relationship with our enemies, nor cheat people out of jobs, homes, and money in order to be much more successful than President Donald J. Trump

Who is Michael Bloomberg?

I want to share a special man with you. Regardless of your partisan feelings, and beliefs, you can’t deny the fact that Michael Bloomberg has been a former Democrat, a Republican mayor — immediately following 9/11/01, and Independent the past years 4.5 years.

Bloomberg is a man who, despite seeming unable to hold onto his beliefs for too long, actually does stick to his guns, and his gut, no matter the cost, or the party-line he follows at a given time.

Mayor Bloomberg sits upon a stack of wealth of approximately $51.8 billion dollars, ranking him 8th richest in the U.S., and 11th in the world. This is not a multi-millionaire struggling, lying and cheating to obtain such a status.

Founder, CEO, and owner of Bloomberg, L.P., Bloomberg heads three major divisions: software, financial services, and mass media. To pinpoint the rarity of men like Michael Bloomberg, and the likes of Richard Branson, and Bill Gates, in comparison, the former NYC mayor is a member of The Giving Pledge, a dedication to give away half of his fortune to others in need.

Political aspirations and statements

2001 was the first political position, during Bloomberg’s temporary philanthropist era of his life, in which he changed from a Democrat to a Republican to run against, and narrowly defeat Mark Green.

Following his 12 year stint in charge of the world’s most important city, Bloomberg returned two years later to be the CEO of his own company. In March of 2016, we heard his first comments about running for political office again in the following tweet:



What a prediction by Bloomberg. That is exactly what happened to Hillary Clinton, due to Gary Johnson and Jill Stein stealing enough third party votes, that had Hillary Clinton obtained, would have won her the 2016 Presidential Election with 307 Electoral College votes.

Although I may be jumping the gun on an eventual announcement by Bloomberg of a Presidential run in 2020, Social Media is abound with predictions, and statements that his very public announcement on Instagram, a Facebook owned social media app, is proof enough of his intent.



[Some of the policies Bloomberg advocates parallel those of either the Democratic or the Republican party platform. He is socially liberal or progressive, supporting abortion rights, same-sex marriage, strict gun control measures, and citizenship for illegal immigrants, for example. On economics, foreign, and domestic issues, Bloomberg tends to be conservative or moderate. He opposed a timeline for withdrawal from the Iraq War, and criticized those who favored one. Economically, he supports government involvement in issues such as public welfare, while being strongly in favor of free trade, pro-business, and describing himself as a fiscal conservativebecause he balanced the city’s budget.[81] He is concerned about climate change and has touted his mayoral efforts to reduce greenhouse gasses.[82]Bloomberg has been cited for not allowing many emergency officials who responded to the September 11, 2001, attacks to attend the tenth anniversary observation of that day.[83] He was also at odds with many around the U.S. for not inviting any clergy to the ceremony marking the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.](Wikipedia)

Will Bloomberg be elected President in 2020?

Well, hold your horses everyone…

We do have a front-running race-horse here, but to already jump in the deep end of the next Presidential Campaign, and make such a definitive statement that we will be saying, “President Michael Bloomberg”, in November, 2020 that year, is a bit of a risky gamble.

Bloomberg does stretch across both sides of the aisle like Plastic-man, and that is possibly just what this country needs to make some major advances, and re-obtain our nation’s status as the indomitable leader of the world.

Taking a look at the most important issues for Democrats, and Republicans alike, as well as the Independents, Libertarian’s and Green Party, and comparing them to the points about a Bloomberg Presidency based on his historical beliefs above, you can’t deny that he could sweep numbers of votes from all parties, and nail a dominant win for President of the United States.

Some thought on the matter.

I, myself, have swung from Democrat until I was 31, Republican until I was 44, Independent from 2014-2016, to current Democrat, thanks to the impressively horrible and societal-dangerous leadership in Congress and the White House.

I am a supporter of four incredible and young talents who could all be good President’s possibly, and certainly all would be excellent Vice-President’s with the great opportunity to keep Democrats in power for 16 years, at the least. No that’s not a prediction, maybe more of a suggestion…

Senators Joseph Kennedy III, Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, and Kristen Gillibrand are all very impressive possibilities to join the 2020 Presidential race, but it’s going to be another one to one-and-a-half years before we find that out. In the meantime, Democrats, and even you on-the-fence bipartisan voters, bask in the happiness of yesterday’s Bloomberg announcement, and start a “High-Rise” to top office in town…that, being the Oval one.

Wentworth, in it's sixth season, both accomplishes the feat of redndering every performance as top notch, and being very hard to pick just one or two standouts from. 


Sometimes, it is hard to point out just one incredible talent in a sea of amazing actors/
actresses. Wentworth, in it’s sixth season, not only accomplishes the feat of rendering
every performance as top notch, and very hard to pick just one or two standouts.

In the cover photo above, we catch a glimpse of three very important figures to this new 
heart-wrenching season of a show that, in this reviewers opinion, is one of the best ever 
written, created, directed, produced, and acted in television/streaming history.

Need to know

If you’ve followed Wentworth through it’s first 5 seasons, you will be happy to discover
that the Joan Ferguson saga is far from over, despite her demise at the end of season 5,
which you will need to watch to find out what I am speaking of.

Much of the story surrounding the staff at Wentworth involves a continuation of the
Ferguson threat, beyond the grave. Seemingly impossible, Ferguson still somehow 
haunts the staff involved in her escape and disappearance in Season 5.

Impressively backing up the Ferguson story of season 6, are the usual antics, murder, 
fights, power battles, and personal relationships that develop, and take place among the 
female occupants of Wentworth Correctional Facility for women.

If you don’t find yourself crying, gasping, and obsessively binge watching the entire
season in 2 to 3 days, you might want to get your heart checked to make sure you’re
still alive. Season 6, against all odds, ups the ante of seasons one through five, and 
tackles several interpersonal relationship issues most of us have faced in our own lives.

Kaz, battles to keep things on the up and up, while a couple of the newest cast members 
do all they can to destroy her power as ‘top dog’ of the prison. Also, love is put on the 
burner, and is challenged at every twisting turn of the season.

In addition to this exciting season, we see the end of the Frankie saga, and if you watch 
the first 5 seasons, you will find it difficult not to tear up at the outcome of her story.

A huge number of individuals in East Africa are encountering perpetual yearning and the danger of starvation. Struggle, repeating extreme dry season, and high sustenance costs are to be faulted. In an ongoing improvement, in excess of 800,000 individuals have fled their homes because of savagery in south Ethiopia since the start of 2018. They are in urgent need of help.

Around 22 million individuals in East Africa require help to anchor their employments and obtain satisfactory sustenance. Nine million youngsters need nourishment help.
