QUESTION: Do you think Hillary will run in 2020?
ANSWER: All my sources say YES!! She will wait for January. The rest of the pack is slowly expiring. Joe Biden does not have what it takes to be a President and his son was clearly involved in selling influence in Ukraine. Elizabeth Warren scares the hell out of the big-money donors. However, the Democrats are in such disarray that we will also see Michael Bloomberg dip his toe in the water. He does not stand much of a shot but he has the backing of New York City which will try to indict Guiliani and take down Trump using legal intimidation to influence the election as they accused Russia. Trump has moved his residence to Florida from New York. That is a smart move not just to save 10% in income tax, but New York is intent on bringing him down for they want a career politician.
Anderson Cooper of CNN was posing with them. Is it any wonder why CNN is the leader of the Democrats these days? You cannot appear with them at events and then claim you are impartial. I have to deal with both sides and governments around the world. I cannot vote or I would not be able to project economies and seen as impartial. There are just some things you cannot do.

It was always going to be thus, and those who refuse to understand the Big Club will never be able to the understand the predictability of it all. It’s a big club folks, and you ain’t in it.
The 2019 data-harvesting has been good. Biden’s role is exhausted. Time for the real owners of the club to assemble. Michael Bloomberg is entering the Democrat presidential primary race:
New York Times – Michael R. Bloomberg is actively preparing to enter the Democratic presidential primary and is expected to file paperwork this week designating himself as a candidate in at least one state with an early filing deadline, people briefed on Mr. Bloomberg’s plans said.
Mr. Bloomberg, the former New York City mayor and billionaire businessman, has been privately weighing a bid for the White House for weeks and has not yet made a final decision on whether to run, an adviser said. But in the first sign that he is seriously moving toward a campaign, Mr. Bloomberg has dispatched staffers to Alabama to gather signatures to qualify for the primary there. Though Alabama does not hold an early primary, it has a Friday deadline for candidates to formally enter the race.
Should Mr. Bloomberg proceed with a campaign, it could represent a seismic disruption in the Democratic race. With his immense personal wealth, centrist views and close ties to the political establishment, he would present a grave and instantaneous threat to former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., who has been struggling to raise money and assemble a ideologically moderate coalition. (read more)
I love, absolutely love, the predictability of it all, and especially how the club managers position the narrative. Notice the hard-sell: “it could represent a seismic disruption in the Democratic race.” As if this is an organic new shift in the race, and not a pre-planned, pre-determined, and pre-scripted event being rolled out. As much as I hate the club handlers, this is why they deserve respect.
The voting base is shocked, s.h.o.c.k.e.d, at the thought of a new entry. Too funny.
“He’s unlikeable” they shout… While seemingly oblivious to the fact that Hillary Clinton was the club selection in 2016,… because she was so, well, “likeable” or something?
“He’s too green”, someone said….While seemingly oblivious to the “green” that really matters. WATCH:
Too damned funny.
The DNC has done their part, and they played it perfectly. Mucho data-harvesting. Now the Hollywood Club, U.S. Wall Street Multinationals, China and the Business Roundtable have a place to deposit all that held-back donor funding – to exploit that data harvested by the dupes.
Give all the various factions a few weeks and by years-end they will be praising the magnanimous likability of the same Michael Bloomberg. Give them a few months and China ain’t that bad. Give them a few months and, well, you get the picture.
They’ll get over it.
Eight months of chaff and countermeasures finally over.
Mitch McConnell, Tom Donohue and Mitt Romney raise a glass, “cheers“.
Ronna McDaniel texts: ‘congrats team, too bad I can’t be there in person – yet’.
And so it goes…
There are trillions at stake.
“Wait, who are we supposed to vote for, again?“
Well, well, well…. everything Joe Biden and the Obama administration previously denied taking place is now documented as having taken place. Newly discovered emails between Ukrainian energy company Burisma and State Dept. officials show the company was leveraging Biden’s affiliation with the company to get U.S. govt assistance.
As a result of a FOIA lawsuit journalist John Solomon has received emails between the Burisma energy company and U.S. State Department; where Burisma seeking U.S. government assistance to get the Ukraine prosecutor to drop a corruption probe against the energy co., and leveraging Hunter Biden’s board membership toward their efforts.
This is the evidence the media said didn’t exist:
The eventual outcome was Vice-President Joe Biden threatening to withhold $1 billion in U.S. financial aid to Ukraine if the Ukrainian government did not fire the prosecutor and drop their investigation of Burisma. Ukraine fired the prosecutor and dropped the investigation. [Full Solomon Article Here]
