Three Four stories of good news for conservatives – Updated

  1. Seizing on the misfortune of his rivals, Bloomberg plans to double the size of his already mammoth national ad campaign

Politico reports in a 4 February 2020 article that Bloomberg (who polls in the single digits and did not advance above Amy Klobuchar during Iowa’s caucus) has decided to double down on ineffective and senseless. In other words, he has decided to double his advertising campaign budget although he has not advanced significantly in the polls.

Pouncing on the misfortune of his Democratic rivals, Bloomberg’s campaign said Tuesday it will double the size of his already mammoth national ad campaign. The former mayor has spent $315 million so far on the airwaves. The campaign, which has about 2,100 employees, will also continue to add field staff at a rapid clip. Those moves were first reported by the New York Times.

“Things are going well. That’s when you want to put more money in,” Bloomberg told POLITICO in a brief interview Tuesday.

He reiterated that Biden and the rest of his opponents lack management experience, and added that he’s on a first-name basis with foreign leaders and dignitaries because of his global business experience.

Michael Bloomberg “is not stupid”

Of course, don’t let anyone say that Michael Bloomberg is stupid. As the Janesville Gazette points out:

Bloomberg can read tea leaves. And so, one assumes, did many of the estimated 2,000 people who filled Philadelphia’s National Constitution Center for a Bloomberg rally as the numbers from Iowa were still dribbling in.

Never mind that Bloomie is going up against a successful incumbent who has fulfilled promises made during his run for office and who continually fills stadiums with hundreds of thousands of motivated fans.

BloombergBoosterStandNever mind that. Mini-Mike is not an blooming idiot.

If you are a liberal, repeat that until you believe it.

If you are a conservative blogger or podcaster, have new business cards printed up that identify you as the “Communications Manager” of your own media outlet.


  1. Mitt Romney Is ‘Formally Not Invited’ To CPAC

The Daily Caller reports in a 31 January 2020 article how the architect of Massachusetts’ Romneycare and the constant opponent of conservative nominees has been formally not invited to CPAC via a tweet.

RomneyNotRepublican Utah Sen. Mitt Romney was notified Friday by a tweet from Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) chair Matt Schlapp that he was “not invited” to the annual conference after being one of two Republicans in the Senate to vote to call additional witnesses in the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.

“The ‘extreme conservative’ and Junior Senator from the great state of Utah, @SenatorRomney is formally NOT invited to #CPAC2020,” Schlapp tweeted.

CPAC is one of the largest conservative gatherings in the country, and President Donald Trump has spoken at the political conference the last three years. The event is scheduled for February 26th at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center with Republican California Rep. Devin Nunes, conservative commentator Mark Levin, and Brexit leader Nigel Farage set to speak at the conference.

Romney, along with Republican Maine Sen. Susan Collins, voted Friday to allow for additional witnesses to testify at the impeachment trial. The measure ended up failing 49-51 after other moderate Republicans joined the the rest of the party in voting no.

The Senate is expected to vote on whether to acquit Trump or remove him from office Wednesday.

In 2012, then-presidential candidate Mitt Romney spoke at CPAC, but over the years the Utah senator has alienated many conservatives by criticizing the current White House administration.

Once again, “conservative” means something

By standing against someone who took the endorsement of President Trump to get elected and now votes in line with the people who even the liberal press admitted lied about the conversation with the Ukrainian president.

  1. WWII vet receives birthday cards for his 100th birthday!

Houston ABC affiliate KRTK reports that a World War II veteran has received almost 1,000 birthday cards for his 100th birthday.

Joseph Broussard

After celebrating 99, number 100 is the birthday a World War II veteran might remember the most.

“Mr. Broussard, we hope you have a wonderful birthday,” Cheryl Miller read to her dad, Joseph Broussard.

It’s a message he received over, and over. Not just from family, and friends, but from people across the country.

“Look at this one is from New York,” Miller showed her dad.

A little more than a week ago, Broussard turned 100. Instead of gifts, a social media post asked people for cards.

The goal was 100, but the wish was granted by nearly 1,000 people.

“All those cards are for me,” Broussard asked his daughter. “Yes,” Miller said.

The cards came from France, Australia, and even from former President George W. Bush.

“It made my heart happy,” he said. “Oh, yes, sir.”

With so many cards, his family decided to do more than hang them. They banded and tied the cards to give the World War II vet a new flag to admire.

“It overwhelmed me to tears because I had no idea to expect that at all,” Miller said.

Broussard’s birthday has passed, but the cards haven’t stopped coming.

By looking at the last line quoted, there is still a chance to do good

If you want to do something good, send a card to this old vet.

  1. Bloomberg Campaign Is Reportedly Paying Social Media Influencers To Make The Presidential Candidate Look Cool

The Daily Caller reports in a 7 February 2020 article that Michael Bloomberg now seems ready to pay people who have big followings to boost his image.

The Bloomberg campaign has reportedly begun paying social media influencers to advertise the former NYC mayor’s presidential campaign to their followers using a “branded content marketplace” called Tribe.

The campaign is paying $150 to “micro-influencers” — someone who has from 1,000 to 100,000 followers, to create content — according a Daily Beast report published Friday. Bloomberg’s team reportedly wants the accounts to describe “why Mike Bloomberg is the electable candidate who can rise above the fray, work across the aisle so ALL Americans feel heard & respected.”

“Are you sick of the chaos & infighting overshadowing the issues that matter most to us?” the campaign asks potential influencers. “Please express your thoughts verbally or for still image posts please overlay text about why you support Mike.”

Tribe works with nearly 70,000 influencers to offer brands the ability to solicit their platforms to advertise a product or service, in this case, a presidential campaign. The brand is also able to license the content and use it on their own platforms.

Using Tribe to expand its audience is a small part of the Bloomberg campaign’s attempt to capitalize on the Iowa Caucus disaster by doubling its advertising budget.

Users on Twitter were quick to mock the campaign, which has experienced a surge in the latest national polls.

So are you liberal, have no pride, and have a memory shorter than a goldfish?

If you are unabashedly liberal to the point of supporting any of the Democrat party socialists running for president. If you don’t care that anyone might know that your asking price is $150. If you can support a presidential campaign of a candidate who has implemented such nanny-state policies as a ban on super-sized drinks, inordinate taxes on tobacco products, and attempts to force his views on charter schools. (Or, possibly, you are a liberal and a shining example of our education system and, therefore, have no knowledge of his former policies while mayor of New York.) If all of these apply to you — I have a deal for you.

If you are conservative and not willing to sell your soul for $150, you still might get to see a number of liberals turn against Mini Mike.
