Because... Assault Weapons Ban

Ed Hozza, chairman of the Lehigh County Democrats, said he took no issue with Bloomberg’s GOP endorsements, given their connection to gun control legislation. When he was the mayor of Whitehall Township, Hozza said, he joined Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns coalition to push for a ban on assault weapons.

[More News] “Mayor Bloomberg is known to be a consensus builder, and [gun control] is one of the major issues coming up next year,” Hozza said. “And God knows we need that today.”

Yesterday I wrote to his campaign and thanked him.

I called this "the greatest act of philanthropy in human history."

Because I'm right with you: I see exactly what he's doing.

Trump will learn not to attack Bloomberg because the counterpunch is going to be so much

worse than his ego can tolerate.

Bloomberg won't pull his punches the way the other candidates have.

He has no fear, and he's trying to teach us not to fear or hate Trump, just to laugh at him.

"Why speculate?" This forum is 80% speculation. It's the Primaries Forum.

We're all trying to speculate as to the identity of the nominee.

If Anonymous doesn't come forward now, Anonymous is a liar and a fraud

A WARNING by Anonymous opens with a self-aggrandizing story about how a crucial group of Trump's closest advisors (likely NSC members) were going to resign in protest, Anonymous being among them.

"The idea was abandoned out of fear we might make a bad situation worse. It got worse anyway. Full awareness of the deteriorating state of affairs dawned on me late one evening, when the loss of a good man revealed the true nature of a troubled one. It was the evening that ultimately led to the writing of this book."


Then Anonymous recounts the miserable reaction of the Trump administration to the death of John McCain. More self-congratulatory pabulum follows: "By then Americans had grown accustomed to the president's pettiness, and they were numb to the endless controversies. Most probably tried to look the other way.

But I couldn't."

So he wrote a book. What pretentious crap!

First off, Anonymous, we weren't looking the other way. We've been full-on traumatized for three straight years. Where were you? Working for the traumatizer!

Then, justifying his anonymity, he writes: "Nor am I unprepared to attach my name to criticism of Donald Trump. I may do so, in due course."

My question to Anonymous, IF NOT NOW, WHEN?

Get off your high horse!

You were prepared to resign en masse (your words!) over Trump's crass reaction to the death of John McCain. Fair enough. But now the entire system of law and order is in full on collapse.

WHERE ARE YOU? Do you have the courage of your convictions? How much worse does it have to get before you and your collection of self-proclaimed heroes step forward?

America waits impatiently.

"I think he'd also like to clean up his own legacy"

That's fascinating! What an insightful comment.

He can drive Trump over the edge

At first I didn't believe Bloomberg was running to win, but rather out of sincere patriotism and disdain for Trump, recognizing that he had sociological and psychological advantages over Trump that no other candidate has. But so much has changed so quickly. He's spending so much money so early that I've had to adjust my opinions about his objective.

I'm not sure he foresaw what has happened in Iowa and New Hampshire.

It's possible his end game has evolved with changing events; changing patterns in his spending suggest he sees an opportunity that may not have existed even two weeks ago.

But he will do anything to get Trump out of office no matter who emerges in the lead, of that I'm certain.

Great questions you ask.

Definitely keep going for now!

This election cycle is not typical, and too many people forecast Joe would not prevail in these early contests.

He can't be written off yet. If he's got the money and the will he should go further, just to make sure.

Anyone who claims they know for certain what is happening now in this election cycle should be treated with healthy skepticism.

Your post is so important I wish you'd consider reposting it in Primaries where more people

would see it.

Our candidates really need to think about finding Trump's weak points.

They are sitting there inside him, just waiting to be pushed.

We have similar ideas about this.

I couldn't agree more with your proposition. Bloomberg has sociological and psychological advantages no other candidate has. He can attack Trump from the very space Trump believes belongs to him (and fantasizes that he owns). An attack coming from this intimate terrain is much more traumatic for Trump. He won't take it well. (I've been speculating that Trump wouldn't even debate Bloomberg.)

Also, Bloomberg can bypass Trump's defense mechanisms to attack him at the very pit of his being.

Bloomberg has no fear of Trump--not in any way, shape or form. There's actually nothing Trump can do to Bloomberg.

Not to get too psychoanalytic, but an attack by Bloomberg on Trump could reawaken Trump's terror of his own father. So I think Bloomberg can hit Trump at his weakest point, a point he tries to protect and that no other person has yet successfully hit.

Here's a post I made some time ago. It's a little old, and I would change some things in it, but it's substantially how I see things:

But I love this topic! We don't talk enough about locating Trump's weak points or how to exploit them. Thanks for your post!
