Bloomberg To Donate 20 Million To Sway Senate

Billionaire philanthropist and gun control advocate Michael Bloomberg announced this week he is funding a move to switch the polarity of the U.S. Senate from Republican to Democrat.

Bloomberg, who founded Mayors Against Illegal Guns in 2006 before it morphed into Everytown in 2014, told the Washington Post he is chipping in some $20 million to the Senate Majority PAC with the hope that Dems could flip the chamber. “Congress has failed us on issue after issue. It’s time for new leadership,” he said.

The Senate Majority PAC, whose action statement said they are “Solely dedicated to building a Democratic majority in the U.S. Senate,” is funded largely through donations from the likes of hedge fund manager Donald Sussman, the Soros family, Newsweb Corp President Fred Eychaner and filmmaker Seth MacFarlane. The group has been heavily involved in digital advertising campaigns against GOP Senate candidates across Florida, Arizona, Missouri, Indiana and North Dakota focused on “motivating and mobilizing African-American, Latinx and younger voters to show up at the polls this fall.”

The $20 million from Bloomberg comes in addition to $80 million he pledged earlier this year to help Democrats win the House and at least $10 million given to Everytown for a similar effort tailored to help buttress “gun sense candidates” to include some long-term staffers attempting to move into Congress.

Addressing a group of Everytown advocates in Georgia in August, Bloomberg spoke of a turning point in the national conversation on guns.

“The truth is: The American people have always favored common-sense gun regulations – but that wasn’t enough. We needed Americans to demand action – and to put in the time and energy to achieve it,” he said. “That’s what Moms Demand Action and Everytown for Gun Safety have been doing for the past five years, and together, we’ve shown that the NRA is not invincible. Far from it.”

    Last I heard, Bloomberg has 17 armed bodyguards! But he doesn’t want decent, honest citizens to have guns to defend themselves against the criminals and crazies that are allowed to run loose in modern America. What a hypocrite!!

  • John R. Bloxson Jr.

    I hope his money sinks him as part of the Globalist Communist Cabal. Every dime he spends some how finds it’s way into Second Amendment accounts as his angi gun groups loose in all States. He has a right to his opinion but NO right to rape ours by forcing his on us!!!

      100% correct John, More and more Americans are waking up to theses POS Globalists and their Agenda

  • Pam

    That’s the only way they can get votes….with payoffs it seems. No thinking American will vote Democratic next month.

    • coolman11

      That’s what worries me there are a lot of non thinkers out there just mad at Trump, or paid to be mad

  • Sidney S Graubard

    If he cared about America he would have remained a Republican. I bet he has a pistol permit in addition to armed security.

  • theicecube

    It is s sad state of affairs in america when money is used to buy the legislation that suits someones political agenda. Maybe we are now a third world country where votes can be legally bought by simply paying to get your candidate in your pocket.

    Don’t you hate it when some Billionaire uses his wealth to force his ideas and morality down your throat? Tell him to take his anti-gun stance back to NYC and not to come back until it actually works somewhere.

    I’m in my 70’s. I recall the Democrats (who I once voted for) keeping the rural south dark, as in no electricity, until I started school. They instrumentally turned white against black with their well meaning, but poorly managed integration policies which did nothing to raise the living standard of poor southerners of both races. All they do today is sit on their fat butts and vote NO. No, we don’really need any more Democrats. What we need is two parties who can get together and come to an agreement except that those on the other party are a bunch of jerks.

    Facebook won’t let me post this. Says it is abusive content. Reporting what a Bloomberg is abusive ???? Giving $20 million to make us helpless !!! He is buying Senators and Congressman.

  • Alan404

    Yes, The Senate, like any number of other things, comes with a sale price. The one remaining question is How Much?

  • generalJed

    Mayor Richard M. Daley of Chicago had, and has, nineteen bodyguards with machine guns, all paid for by the State of Illinois! He and his family also moved out of his Southport neighborhood and into a fenced/gated neighborhood built solely for himself and his cronies. He also had a cozy relationship with the murdering D’Arco crime family, who operate out of an office in City Hall. Feds, anyone?

    Bloomberg is a disgusting hypocritical pedophile. He should be made to drink the cool aid and be put to sleep.
    All his cronies (Soros, Fienstein, Giuliani etc.)should be arrested and hung publicly for their traitorous actions against the constitution and the good citizens of the United States.
