Things Democrats have blanket immunity on in our “justice” system:
1) lying under oath
2) Logan Act violations
3) election interference
4) political spying
5) violent speech suppression
6) foreign collusion

YOU KNOW? WHAT I WANT TO SEE IS SOME PUNISHMENT: Trump Trolls Senate Democrat Caught Meeting With Iranian Regime: That Sure Sounds Like A ‘Violation Of The Logan Act’.
ANN ALTHOUSE ON MIKE BLOOMBERG, THE DEMOCRATS, AND THE MEDIA. “The DNC changed the qualification rules to help Bloomberg. They got rid of the requirement of a number of donors. But he needs some number of polls putting him over 10%, and the latest info I can find, here, says he’s still one short. It’s funny, because I was just checking for new polls at Real Clear Politics, and there hasn’t been anything new since last Friday and no new national poll since last Wednesday. The most recent national poll surveyed people from 2/9 to 2/11. That seems odd, doesn’t it? Are polls being held back? I remember before the Iowa caucus, the Des Moines Register held back its poll.”
IF ONLY THERE WAS SOME SORT OF NEWS ORGANIZATION THAT COULD INVESTIGATE THIS TOPIC: NYT wonders why blacks escape Chiraq.
“Chicago has a notorious reputation when it comes to crime, but it’s actually not as bad as some smaller cities on this list like New Orleans, Newark, and Detroit. Chicago is the third largest city in the country and while it does have a higher murder rate than the two larger cities, Los Angeles and New York City, it’s still not the most dangerous city in the country. The latest data from 2017 shows that the murder rate in Chicago was 24 per 100,000 residents.”
New York’s rate was 7 murders per 100,000 residents.
But the murders and the crime in Chicago are mainly confined to the poor black sections of the town. It is mainly black-on-black crime. Police solve only 1 in 6 murders. No one protests. It’s not murder; it’s gun violence. The New York Times said so.
Chicago is the Democrat Model For Cities where the rich get The Magnificent Mile — North Michigan Avenue — with its shops, hotels, restaurants, and museums, and the poor get the slums, and the middle class get to leave.
Chicago’s last Republican mayor left office in 1931.
UNEXPECTEDLY: “Bloomberg Campaign Says It’s a Two-Man Race for the Nomination”…says, Bloomberg News.
Congratulations, California Democrats! You’ve successfully scared the holy bejeezus out of all California companies. Now, let’s talk.
In Marvel Universe terms, you’re Tony Stark. You tried to do something to protect everyone, but you created Ultron. Now, it’s time for a Vision.
It’s been 6 weeks since AB5 was signed and put into effect. We’ve now had 6 weeks to see some actual results. So, as a CPA with clients in the Independent Contractor world, and as a lifelong Democrat whose Assemblyperson and Governor actually voted for this shitshow that is AB5, I need to ask: What were you thinking?
H.L. Mencken smiles.
TO BE FAIR, HE SHARES IT WITH MUCH OF OUR RULING CLASS AND MANY OF OUR UNIVERSITIES: Bloomberg’s China Conflict of Interest.
In a September 2019 interview with PBS’s Firing Line Bloomberg said: “The Communist Party wants to stay in power in China and they listen to the public.” Further, “Xi Jinping is not a dictator. He has to satisfy his constituents or he’s not going to survive.”
Bloomberg failed to mention that in 2013 Bloomberg News was caught in a scandal when it killed news stories revealing corruption related to Xi Jinping’s family members, prompting various reporters and editors to resign. It turned out that Bloomberg News leadership told the editors that stories about the families of politburo members were off limits.
When challenged by host Margaret Hoover of PBS on whether he really believes Xi is “responsive” to the democratic will of the people, Bloomberg doubled down. “The Chinese Communist Party looks at Russia and they look for where the Communist Party is and they don’t find it anymore. And they don’t want that to happen. So, they really are responsive.”
These absurd statements fly in the face of the what is happening in Xinjiang province with the forced imprisonment of nearly 2 million Uighur Muslims in “re-education” camps. The continuing government crackdown on the citizens of Hong Kong as well as the closing of innumerable Christian churches, jailing pastors and even rewriting Scripture. (Additionally, nearly 500,000 individuals are currently detained in “Black Jails” and mental health institutions without trial, charges or access to legal aid. Most recently, video has surfaced of the government’s reaction to the coronavirus by physically dragging victims or potential victims of the virus kicking and screaming into expansive state pens. . . .
As Josh Rogin of the Washington Post points out, among the ways Michael Bloomberg and his company Bloomberg LP make a considerable amount of money in China is not only through the extraordinarily profitable licensing of its financial software but via its massive Bloomberg Barclays Global Aggregate Bond Index. Bloomberg LP is helping finance Chinese companies by sending billions of U.S. investor dollars into the Chinese bond market.
Follow the money.
