Mega-billionaire Michael Bloomberg is trying to buy the Democratic nomination. This much is clear by the fact that he’s already on pace to outspend President Obama’s entire 2012 run by Super Tuesday, and he’s only been in the race for five weeks. To win the nomination, he doesn’t have to convince a majority of voters. He simply has to convince a majority of delegates and superdelegates thanks to the new rules set forth by the DNC.
The outrageous ad buys in Super Tuesday states is intended to send a message. That message is supposed to target voters, of course, but that’s just to get him qualified. He doesn’t need to win many states. In fact, as long as he gets some delegates in most of them by getting over 15% of the vote, he’ll be set up nicely for the convention. It’s there that his real message is going to be understood by the actual target audience. In a contested convention, which the Democrats will almost certainly have, pledges to particular candidates will no longer be in play. Sure, the candidates will make sure their pledged delegates are truly supporters of theirs, which is their right to do. But when push comes to shove as it will during the convention, Bloomberg’s hope is that he’ll unite the party behind him, and more importantly behind the good ol’ dollar.
His message to the delegates, which he’s sending now through his unprecedented ad buys, is this: “I have the money to beat Trump and I’m willing to spend it.”
His biggest competitor is not the current frontrunner, former Vice President Joe Biden. In fact, he intends to pull his greatest share of delegates in the second and subsequent ballots from Biden’s tally of pledges. His actual main competitor is the combined Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren ticket. We can assume one of them will drop out before the convention and will ask their pledged delegates to vote for the other. But even if both of them are still making a play for the nomination at a contested convention, one or the other will eventually drop… and may become the other’s Vice Presidential choice.
With food shortages coming, it’s a smart move to order organic, cooked, freeze-dried chicken for long-term storage from Prepper Organics.
Bloomberg’s hope is that his show of financial strength will overcome the two radical progressives’ rabid base of supporters. He will tell the delegates that he’s more electable than they are and his $50+ billion in the bank is necessary to defeat President Trump. He’ll show how his policy proposals more closely align with the Democratic platform and he’ll tout himself as the common sense progressive. But the real magic will happen behind the scenes as the he pitches the superdelegates on what will be in it for them in a Bloomberg administration. The offer of more power to them combined with the promise of spending major money in the general election will give him a chance of winning the nomination.
At this point, I’d say he’s at about 50/50. The hyper-leftist candidates have more sway over the party than anyone’s willing to admit and they’ll have the Justice Democrats lobbying (and threatening) on their behalf. Milwaukee in mid-July is going to be insane.

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
