Bloomberg. Tonight will be all about Mike Bloomberg.

I don’t think I had to lead up to the reveal in the article. You know it will be about Bloomberg, I know it, and everyone else knows it. The desperation of the Democrats is on full display and the former mayor of New York and current white billionaire is their last hope to bring voters back.

At this time, the open socialist that is Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is at the front of the pack and as the Democratic National Committee has exhibited very strongly since 2016, they don’t like that. They don’t like that so much that they were willing to work behind the scenes to disrupt the Sanders campaign then and as I talked about in a recent video, I’m willing to bet a solid chunk of money that they’re doing it now.

With Joe Biden proving to be a non-starter and Elizabeth Warren having fallen so far that it’s about to hit the ground any second, the DNC has minimal options when it comes to unseating Sanders. Buttigieg was coming close but doesn’t seem to have the necessary “umph” to make it. Klobuchar is there…

So it’s down to Bloomberg. Bloomberg, the last-minute entry who is playing catch-up by playing ads on every working television and radio you walk past. Any given video you click on will either feature Raid: Shadow Legends or a Bloomberg ad.

So what does that tell us about what we can expect from the debates tonight?

We know that the rest of the Democratic pack will be gunning for Bloomberg. Doubtless, they’ve seen all the recent attacks on him by the media both on the left and the right, and as such are doubtlessly planning strategies to bring up a lot of what they saw and let Bloomberg flounder in his own muck.

Biden himself has already clued us into what he’s planning on doing to Bloomberg on the stage, as he recently released an attack on the billionaire on Twitter and mentioning the two need to “catch up.”

Doubtless, Bloomberg will have defenses ready.

The question will be whether or not Bloomberg will have outside help from the DNC itself. If they’re smart, they’ll step back and continue to play nice with the Sanders campaign on the surface as they have been. Thing is, they haven’t exactly been proving themselves to be master strategists as of late. As I noted in my video, mainstream media outlets seem to be working against Sanders, and Sanders supporters aren’t exactly happy about that as reported by Vox:

But the media narrative coming out of the state fair was that the senator ignored voters, skirting the all-important Iowa retail politics. “Somehow Bernie walked around the fairgrounds for 20 minutes without interacting with any human beings other than the guy who sells corn dogs,” the New York Times’s Reid Epstein tweeted. And that the crowd at the fair for Sanders was smaller than Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s, which, as a reporter who saw both crowds, was truly impossible to tell. Sanders fielded questions about how he was slipping in the state polls, where he’s now in fourth behind former Vice President Joe Biden, Warren, and Sen. Kamala Harris.

Sanders and his campaign are calling out media bias: The corporate media is specifically writing them off, they say.

“The undiscriminating coverage of polls that fit existing narratives is certainly an issue that all of us need to be aware of,” Sanders’s top aide Jeff Weaver told reporters, listing coverage from CNN, MSNBC, and major newspapers. “Headline after headline declaring that the Sanders campaign is over.”

It’s my firm belief that the mainstream media doesn’t work in the political realm without some kind of approval from the DNC. That’s not necessarily a tinfoil-hat thing to think. I think that because there have been constant bouts of communication between mainstream media sources and the Democrat Party for ages. Even if we didn’t have that evidence, we’d still have the direct effect staring us in the face of constant anti-Republican narratives and pro-Democrat talking points. Left-leaning journalists in the mainstream media are a dime a dozen. They even go shopping for fun jackets with Democratic candidates as we saw with failed 2020 Democratic candidate Kamala Harris.

Therefore, my prediction is going to be that you’re going to see Bloomberg get a whole lot of speaking time. More than any other candidate. You’re going to see the rest of the pack come after Bloomberg, but you’re going to see Bloomberg being very well prepared and ready to strike back. You’re especially going to see a lot of striking back at Sanders.

In the meantime, enjoy this Bloomberg ad from yours truly.
