BLOOMBERG SURROGATE WAS PR GURU FOR BRAZIL’S EXTREME-RIGHT LEADER BOLSONARO

SOURCE: THE GRAYZONE
Former Michael Bloomberg aide Arick Wierson, who is pushing the billionaire’s 2020 presidential campaign and attacking Bernie Sanders, helped elect far-right demagogue Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil.

BY BEN NORTON

A Michael Bloomberg surrogate pumping up the billionaire’s 2020 campaign for president also helped to elect Brazil’s extreme-right leader, Jair Bolsonaro, an open supporter of military dictatorship who frequently threatens violence against his political opponents.

Arick Wierson is a public relations strategist who served as a political aide and the top communications adviser to Bloomberg when the Republican media mogul was mayor of New York City.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That Bloomberg is so comfortable, tasking surrogates to support dictatorships in other countries with their PR, to the detriment of the people living in those countries, makes me wonder just what kind of allegiances he has to the Original Contract with America, the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

And a at this moment in time, I find myself singularly uncomfortable with this question, relative to Bloomberg's Presidential candidacy and aspirations.

Math favors Sanders as fractured field presents path to victory

Sen. Bernard Sanders appears to have hit a ceiling of support, with polls and early results showing him struggling to top 30% of the vote in most states.

Yet that may still be more than enough to win the Democratic nomination this year.

Judge Amy Berman Jackson Says Congressional Investigators Were Not Part Of An 'Anti-Trump Cabal'

Judge Amy Berman Jackson said Thursday while sentencing Roger Stone to over three years in prison that Russia probe investigators in congress like Adam Schiff were not part of an "anti-Trump cabal."

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) just so happens to have made the same comment two years ago.

Roger Stone sentenced to 3 years for lying, witness tampering as case roils DOJ

U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson, while taking a firm stance toward Stone in the courtroom, also said the up to nine years originally sought by federal prosecutors was excessive. Her sentence of 40 months in prison was considerably less than that -- yet far more than the probation sought by his defense and certainly tough enough to keep speculation alive about a possible pardon from President Trump.

Trump should pardon him and Pronto!

GOP operative Roger Stone was sentenced to more than three years in prison on Thursday after days of drama ensnaring career prosecutors, the attorney general and the president over how severe Stone's punishment should be for making false statements to investigators during the Trump-Russia probe.

“Wages Slavery and Chattel Slavery”

As the Lowell system of factory work became more prevalent, so too did the public debate over the justice and morality of such labor. Labor organizers routinely called for a reduction in working hours, citing the ill effects upon the health and morale of workers. Although legislators were often slow to intervene in freely-entered contracts between management and labor, in most states, protective legislation of various kinds did eventually pass, if only to alleviate the concerns and criticisms of labor reformers like Orestes Bronson and William West.

The abolitionist and former slave Frederick Douglas after several years of experience as a “free man” concluded: “experience demonstrates that there may be a slavery of wages only a little less galling and crushing in its effects than chattel slavery.”

Kansas Man Facing 25 Years For Cannabis That Stopped Chronic Seizures

Kansas has got to be the worst state to get busted in for pot. They have actually let medical marijuana patients die in their jails. Corrupt to the core!

A Kansas resident is facing 25 years in prison for growing a single marijuana plant. Larry Burgess, a cancer survivor, turned to marijuana when prescription drugs failed to alleviate his seizure disorder.
No Cannabis Love in Kansas

“No seizure medication helped. In fact, my seizures got progressively worse over time. It was terrible. Terrible. At my lowest I contemplated suicide,” Burgess told KCTV5 News. At one point, he was taking 23 pills per day to combat the seizures with little effect.

Fredonia, Kan., authorities were possibly tipped off when Burgess chronicled his marijuana-growing endeavors on Instagram.

Thunberg Was Manufactured by Green Tech Industry

Subject: You Might Find This Interesting:...

? Thought you might be interested...This was sent by someone who was interested in knowing what's what, dug around, and found the following....

"Having stumbled across an interview with Greta Thunberg's captain of the sailing vessel that brought her across to New York, I was very surprised at what he said. He was flying back to Europe from New York and 3 others were flying from Europe to New York to sail the vessel back. So that is four flights to save her one flight. Obviously a PR stunt. But it got me curious as to who the heck was paying for these flights? This is a quick synopsis of what I found out.

Trump Issues Pardon for Ex-NYPD Commissioner Bernard Kerik

As with so many “news media” reports now it’s what is NOT REPORTED that is the real news. The following is a case in point. Whether intentional or not, key elements are missing in the NBC report and they constitute the pivotal point in the following story.

Comment – JuneBug1415 on Reddit
Bernard Kerik accepted a “loan” of $250k from Israel billionaire when meeting with Israel to discuss counter-terrorism 2 weeks before 9/11. And oh yea, he was the police commissioner that oversaw 9/11, was pardoned today.
Today Trump has granted clemency or pardoned 11 people all convicted of corruption. But the one that bothers me the most is Kerik.
He accepted a $250,000 interest-free “loan” from Israeli billionaire Eitan Wertheimer and failed to report it. Kerik first met the billionaire, whose vast holdings include major defense contractors, when Kerik took a four-day trip to Israel less than two weeks before September 11, 2001 to discuss counter-terrorism with Israeli officials.

Trump & The Masonic Jewish Tag Team

This article from Jan 17, 2017, is looking increasingly prescient.

Trump belongs to the Zionist faction. Does this portend another world war?

By Henry Makow Ph.D.

What is Donald Trump's place in the big picture?

Trump is a Freemason and probably a crypto Jew. He is surrounded by Jews. The Masonic Jewish (Illuminati) goal is the reduction of the human race (goyim) to the status of domestic animals serving them. We see this emergent pattern in the gross disparities of wealth in today's world.

The Illuminati advance this agenda through mind control (mass media, education) and war. They can't subjugate humanity alone; they need the goyim to destroy each other.

The Intolerance Of The "Tolerant" Left: The End Of Liberal Democracy?

Authored by Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff via The Gatestone Institute,

We recently witnessed two events that indicated the possible demise of liberal democracy. The implications should frighten supporters of democratic forms of government in which individual rights and freedoms are officially recognized and protected, and the exercise of political power is limited by the rule of law.

The growing intolerance of many "left-wing" groups is apparent in the uproar of the democratic election of the state premier of the German state of Thuringia as well as in the performance of the Speaker of the US House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, publicly ripping up US President Donald J. Trump's State of the Union address. It was an official document that belongs not to her but to the public, and of which she was merely its custodian.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a 70 year old great-auntie with a really messed up back, who wishes no one any physical harm, and comes down squarely,but gently, as a little more conservative than liberal, those people who believe that violence against me, for what I believe, scare the utter crud out of me.

And I would like to politely remind people who believe that acting in such a manner is "rational", that just because you have silenced someone, does not mean that you have changed their mind.

Bloomberg's Rising Polls Show The Power Of Billionaire Narrative Control

Illinois Among States Where Bloomberg Implanted Paid Lawyers In AG Office To Advance His Agenda

Billionaire presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg is paying salaries of lawyers who promote his agenda in state attorney general offices in liberal leaning states, including Illinois, according to various reports.

Bloomberg money currently funds the salaries of Special Assistant Attorneys General (SAAGs) in 10 Democratic AG offices, according to Fox News. Illinois is among those states. There is no indication how many SAAGs are implanted in the office of Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul.

“What’s problematic is the arrangement through which a private organization or individual can promote an overtly political agenda by paying the salaries of government employees,” said Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill.

The Israel lobby is mobilising to stop Bernie Sanders

In September 2016, the Jewish Labour Movement in Britain held a small barbecue to establish a new youth wing. Thanks to the fact that an undercover journalist from Al Jazeera was among the tiny handful of attendees, we know in quite some detail what was said at the event.

The JLM’s then chairperson Jeremy Newmark stated that a year earlier, in September 2015, he and a small group of associates had met in a cafe and planned on “re-forming the JLM to do something with it”. That something was “utilising the rights and privileges” that the Jewish Labour Movement “enjoys as a socialist society” within Britain’s Labour Party. This plan to reconstitute the JLM came against the backdrop of what Newmark said was “the rise of Jeremy Corbyn” in Britain and “Bernie Sanders in the States.”

Now The Gibson Guitar Raids Make Sense

IRS Scandal: The inexplicable raid nearly two years ago on a guitar maker for using allegedly illegal wood that its competitors also used was another targeting by this administration of its political enemies.

On Aug. 24, 2011, federal agents executed four search warrants on Gibson Guitar Corp. facilities in Nashville and Memphis, Tenn., and seized several pallets of wood, electronic files and guitars. One of the top makers of acoustic and electric guitars, including the iconic Les Paul introduced in 1952, Gibson was accused of using wood illegally obtained in violation of the century-old Lacey Act, which outlaws trafficking in flora and fauna the harvesting of which had broken foreign laws.

Washington Post Op-ed: ‘Give the Elites a Bigger Say in Choosing the President’

The Washington Post is taking criticism for an op-ed published Tuesday by Marquette University political science professor Julia Azari, titled: “It’s time to give the elites a bigger say in choosing the president.”

Citing the “rocky start” to the Democratic Party’s presidential primary, Azari suggests that the process of choosing the nominee be taken from the people and returned to the politicians:

The current process is clearly flawed, but what would be better? … A better primary system would empower elites to bargain and make decisions, instructed by voters.

Erdogan’s Excellent Syrian Adventure

by Daniel Lazare Posted on February 19, 2020

What’s a political strongman to do when his economy is weak and another round of financial turbulence is on the way? When political support is languishing and a series of budget-busting construction projects has people shaking their head in dismay?

The answer is obvious: he invades another country in order to distract attention and give his poll numbers a boost. Better yet, he invades two countries and then travels to a third in order to make highly bellicose comments about a forth. Then while the press back home buzzes with excitement, he folds his hands and prays that somehow it will all work out.

Netanyahu's trial to begin on March 17 - Israeli Justice Ministry

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s corruption trial will start on March 17, two weeks after Israel holds its third national election in less than a year, the Justice Ministry said on Tuesday.

Netanyahu, the first sitting Israeli prime minister to be charged with a crime, has denied any wrongdoing in the three corruption cases against him.

In addition to his legal battle, Netanyahu, who heads the right-wing Likud party, is fighting for his political life in a March 2 election, after inconclusive ballots in April and September.

IS MICHAEL BLOOMBERG SLATED TO BE THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY’S NOMINEE? And Possibly on a Ticket with Hillary?

Although he is ranked as the twelfth richest man in the world (with a net worth of over $60 billion), I didn’t pay much attention to Michael Bloomberg until this January. Guns rights activists in Virginia have denounced him for funding Democratic legislators there as well as Virginia’s controversial gun control laws, which resulted in the huge Virginia gun rights rally on January 20.

Then I noticed the name of Bloomberg—who didn’t launch his campaign until last November—starting to appear in election coverage more and more. On February 13, Trump called him “Mini Mike” in a Tweet (Bloomberg is 5 feet 7 inches tall). Since Bloomberg cannot do anything about his height, the mainstream media rushed to his defense over this insult. Inadvertently or not, Trump had given Bloomberg a publicity boost.

Israel: parliament grants immunity to former minister facing corruption charges

The Israeli parliament, the Knesset, granted immunity on Monday to former Labour, Social Affairs and Social Services Minister Haim Katz who is facing a trial over corruption charges, Quds Press has reported.

Katz is a member of the Likud, the party led by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has himself been indicted on fraud and corruption charges.

MKs voted by 62 to 43 in favour of Katz’s immunity request, claiming that he carried out the misconduct in “good faith” as part of his work as a member of the Knesset.

“Mini is illegally buying the Democrat Nomination,” Trump continued. “They are taking it away from Bernie again. Mini Mike, Major Party Nominations are not for sale! Good luck in the debate tomorrow night and remember, no standing on boxes!”
