Michael Bloomberg -- And Those Like Him -- Must Be Stopped
[Comments enabled]

This man is literally Hitler.

He's a fascist.  He's Mussolini.  He's Mao.

And he's going to kill you if you sign on to any of his bull****.

The latest is that he's "not going to run for President" because he now believes that he should start up a new movement called Beyond Carbonwhich, as the name implies, means the end of hydrocarbons and similar.

I note he doesn't believe a word of his doomsaying; it's all a huge ****ing lie and to the extent he tries to sell it to others that makes it a fraud.

Let's me point out that not only does Bloomberg own at least a dozen residences all over the world, all of which consume a metric crap-ton of energy, he also owns both a jet and a chopper.

He has neither sold or disposed of either yet both require carbon-based fuels and always will.

Bizjets are ridiculously inefficient on a per-person-mile per gallon of fuel consumed, eclipsed only by anything rotary wing.  You may as well light suitcases of $100 bills on fire (and barrels of oil) in your back yard when it comes to fuel consumption on those things.

I have no quarrel with rich people -- even stupidly-rich people, and what they choose to spend their money on.  But as soon as any of them start braying about how we must stop using carbon-based energy sources while they own and use yachts, private jets and helicopters, all of which are discretionary items nobody actually needs and all of which consume carbon-based fuels by the truckload they can all **** off.

This man is dangerous and his intended "movement" can only achieve its goals one way: By force.

He intends to shove everyone lesser than he is in the oven -- and I'm not speaking rhetorically either.

He really means it; eliminating carbon-based fuels as a matter of public policy globally, enforced at gunpoint (which is the only way it will happen) will inevitably result in the death of billions.

Anthropogenic global warming isn't about natural science as much as it is about political science. I could detail how the IPCC's mandate was to provide proof of anthropogenic global warming, not a search for truth, but a political agenda.

Bloomberg isn't interested in establishing the scientific method in order to search for the truth regarding why, when and how Earth's climate changes. Bloomberg, Al Gore and all the rest of the rich Marxists what a carbon tax. And they all know how the children's minds have been pumped full of **** in public school for decades --- pumped so full of **** that it's coming out of their ears.

It's gotten to the point that you can't have a rational discussion with these little know-it-alls because public schooling has turned them into little ISIS Climate Jihadists. Really, it's like trying to reason with a Muslim. Impossible.

So, this global warming thing has become sort of a religion, a cult. And millions of kids have drank the Kool-aid.

And here's the political science that Bloomberg wants to take advantage of: Trump is labeled as a "Climate Denier" and the worst kind of Climate Infidel. As such, it's natural for Bloomberg to appose Trump by drumming up a anthropogenic climate emergency just in time for 2020.

Bloomberg is practicing good Marxist political science, but bad natural science.

Anthropogenic global warming is a fraud. If you don't think so, then just study the Geological Time Scale. And if you're too confused by your public education, then take a few hours and watch Randell Carlson on The Joe Rogan Experience. If Randell can help Average Joe understand paleoclimatology, he can probably help anybody who really wants to understand climate...

This is true of so damn many peoples' positions. Bloomberg has the bucks to make his voice heard, but the people standing next to you in line at the grocery store can be just as bad. Is it fear, hubris, desire for control, narcissism or some combination of those? They would cheerfully use force to make other people follow rules that they don't think should apply to themselves. People that advocate using force like that don't have enough problems in their lives. I can only hope that Bloomberg comes down with some incredibly painful wasting disease that requires billions of dollars to cure. We'd be much less likely to hear anything from him for quite a while.

I agree completely that he is dangerous ! It's a shame we can't treat his billions like a loaded gun in the hands of an old fart with Alzheimer's. Here are two videos talking about the same thing that I was watching before I saw this post.

I saw recently that the co-founder of Greenpeace has come out against AGW and the Green New Deal as have several prominent scientists. But still they persist. We're talking about a ~1% increase of a gas that only makes up .041% of the atmosphere. Water vapor and the Sun have way more to do with climate than any imagined effects from a trace gas. But you can't tell them that.

Same as it ever was. Kipling realized that this is the nature of some men and wrote a fascinating poem about it. Such men believe they know better and are therefore better qualified to run everyone's life in an 'optimal' manner (for their own good, of course).

See "Gods of the Copybook Headings" written in 1919 by Rudyard Kipling

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Gods_o....

The ending of Kipling's work sums it up nicely:

As it will be in the future, it was at the birth of Man
There are only four things certain since Social Progress began.
That the Dog returns to his Vomit and the Sow returns to her Mire,
And the burnt Fool's bandaged finger goes wabbling back to the Fire;

And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins
When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins,
As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn,
The Gods of the Copybook Headings with terror and slaughter return!

Buckle up folks. 'Terror and Slaughter' are almost upon us.

"those piling on the Green **** Deal are stoking thier own doom."

Most of them expect to have a place in one of those fat-cat bunkers in New Zealand when the West collapses.

Of course, most will discover at the last minute that they were wrong. And those who do have a place won't be so happy when their new Chinese overlords arrive to take over.

Aveteam -- i believe that the co-founder of GreenPeace disagreed with AGW from the very beginning of its promotion.

perhaps the Democraps are running on all of these dip**** positions so that they are not elected and Republicans are in office to the greatest extent possible during a crash.

This is just the latest of his personal "crusades" that reflect his views that he knows what's best for everybody else. As others have expressed, there is no reasoning with a psychopath who feels it his sacred duty to compel others to acquiesce to his viewpoint. Ordinarily, it is easy to write such folks off as cranks, but his stature/influence among the lib/prog crowd and his wealth (and boy, does he have a lot of it to throw around) make him especially dangerous, as he can buy lots of leverage/control.

The Ticker is spot on in the assessment that he intends to impose his views by force, as he has been intent on disarming the populace for a long time. Having seen how difficult it would be to effect such disarmament on a top-down basis, his MO for the anti-2nd Amendment "crusade" has expanded from purely a propaganda-based effort to actually injecting lots of money into local and state level campaigns all over the country, in an effort to defeat pro-2A officials.

I would be perfectly happy if he gets his final comeuppance via some mugger who, out of respect for his anti-gun position, disembowels him with a carving knife.

"i believe that the co-founder of GreenPeace disagreed with AGW from the very beginning of its promotion."

I'm not sure whether it goes that far back, but I do remember him saying it was nonsense some years ago. He seems to be an actual environmentalist, rather than a Marxist.

My guess is the Democrats are pushing much of this nonsense to pander to their base while they know it's impossible for the laws to pass. Just like Republicans pushing bills to end Obamacare, when they knew there was no way the bills would get through the Senate and White House.

Yes, the co-founder of Greenpeace knows the GND is deadly:

Saw a video of a bunch of elementary students along with Middle School students trying to convince Dianne Feinstein that she should support the green New Deal. She tried to convince the little Nazis that it could not work but the teacher was evidently leading the pack. These True Believers are the real problem they have no concept of reality.

Didn't he step down from GP?

yes, he stepped down from GP for the reason that the organization was hijacked for political purposes. i think that he said something to the effect that they were promoting the loss of human freedom justified by saving the planet. he wanted their work to be based in reality and science. it has been a while, so the details are a little fuzzy. perhaps someone can help here.

Michael Bloomberg came under my watch from his "Mayors Against Illegal Guns" group. He is a facist who hates the second amendment. I have no tolerance for anyone who uses the constitution as toilet paper and that's Michael Bloomberg. In the dictionary next to the word "constitution-hater" there ought to be just one thing: a picture of Michael Bloomberg.

Bloomgerg is not White. He open hates Christians and Whites.

Why on earth did we decide to let an alien people with an alien morality rule over us?

Why is it causing so much anger in Congress when somebody points out the influence of a foreign country (not Russia) over our government?

Like Western Europe, soon it will be illegal to even question these people or why they hate us.

Bloomberg's people have a dual morality wherein it is perfectly ok with their God to screw over people who are not them.

And 76% of them voted for the democrats.

They don't belong here. They are not American and do not have an interest in our Posterity. IN fact they want it replaced with low IQ aztecs, somalis, and mohameddans.

Wake up guys. Civic nationalism is a huge mistake.

Tribes are all that matter. We've evolved a very strong in-group preference. And it is only White people who are pretending otherwise and in a crazed virtue signalling orgy of destruction, are giving it all away to people who openly hate us.

Until that changes we will keep getting ****ed by the tribal people.

White men must organize and defend our people. Because the jews, somalis, mexicans, arabs, and every other group simply will not do so and in fact will work toward our destruction.

I guess by now if you can't see it, maybe you never will. But your kids and grand kids sure the **** will. And they will have to live with naive decisions.
