• On the Same Weekend: Bloomberg’s Official and Hong Kong Chi-Coms Get Crushed. Now What?

    Surge Summary: This past Sunday, the people of Hong Kong voted and pro-Communist China candidates experienced a decisive drubbing. That same day, Michael Bloomberg officially entered the Democratic presidential primary. It remains to be seen what will happen with the Chi-Comms or the former mayor of New York City.

    Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg made it official yesterday — he’s a candidate for president of the United States.  The former Republican-turned-independent is now a Democrat, and the billionaire media mogul is vowing to spend “whatever it takes.” With an estimated net worth of $50 billion, he certainly could.

    And if the latest polls are any indication, he’ll have to as he currently trails businessman Andrew Yang in the Democrat primary.  Meanwhile, Bloomberg just launched a one week, $30 million ad blitz targeting . . . President Trump, of course.

    Speaking of elections, pro-Communist China candidates were crushed in Hong Kong’s elections [Sunday].  Pro-democracy candidates carried 17 of 18 districts.  Initial results indicate that they won 347 of the 452 seats up for election, compared to just 60 seats won by pro-China candidates.

    Carrie Lam, Beijing’s puppet leader in Hong Kong, acknowledged the stunning results, saying:

    “Quite a few are of the view that the results reflect people’s dissatisfaction with the current situation and the deep-seated problems in society.  The Hong Kong government will listen to the opinions of members of the public humbly, and seriously reflect.”

    Of course, just how seriously the Chinese Communist Party reflects on the real cause of the unrest in Hong Kong remains to be seen.
