Bloomberg pays off over $20 million in debt for 31,000 felons so they can vote in Florida
Failed Democratic presidential candidate and billionaire Mike Bloomberg paid off over $20 million in fines and fees for over 31,000 felons in Florida so they will be eligible to vote, the Daily Mail reports.
Florida was a key battleground state where a mere 537 votes were the deciding factor in the 2000 presidential election.
“We know to win Florida we will need to persuade, motivate and add new votes to the Biden column,” Bloomberg said in a written statement. “This means we need to explore all avenues for finding the needed votes when so many votes are already determined.”
“Defund the police” activist Alyssa Milano calls 911 triggering massive police presence over gun threat
Actress Alyssa Milano, a top supporter of the “defund the police” movement who has also railed about “militarized police,” didn’t waste a second dialing 911 to call cops to report an armed gunman on her property.
Law enforcement showed up in force, sending seven Ventura County Sheriff’s vehicles, a K-9 unit, a police helicopter, and a Los Angeles fire Department team, the Daily Mail reported.
Milano had officers looking for a “male, 40 years old, with a long rifle.”
As it turned out, a male teenager who lived in the neighborhood realized he was the cause of alarm and turned himself in. He had been outside shooting at squirrels with an airgun.
Omar in forthcoming book: “I’m going to burn down everything around me by adding the fuel of my religion, skin color, gender or even tone.”
Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has a forthcoming autobiography entitled: “This Is What America Looks Like.”
One passage is raising eyebrows for its radical tone.
“I am, by nature, a starter of fires,” Omar writes in the book. “My work has been to figure out where I’m going to burn down everything around me by adding the fuel of my religion, skin color, gender or even tone.”
During an interview with the New York Times, Omar was asked: “Couldn’t that kind of language be interpreted as a form of demagoguery? Why is it helpful to express yourself in those terms rather than, say, in terms of building things up?”
“People will say it’s my ‘tone’ … I’m like, you’re agitated by my tone because you think people like me should be sitting in a corner, not heard and not seen,” Omar replied. “Everything that comes out of my mouth is going to be filtered through the lens of you despising my existence.”
In a tweet issued on the same day that the publicity around Omar’s comments emerged, she tweeted: “I didn’t come to Washington to sit back and stay silent. My community sent me to fiercely fight on their behalf. That’s what I’ll continue to do.”
Many of those commenting believe Omar gave telling responses in the interview, which they say, reflects what they allege is a radical nature. Omar has been criticized many times over allegations of anti-Semitism in her criticisms of Israel.
Back in May, Omar was among the first to call for the dismantling of the police in Minneapolis after the death of George Floyd.
“We need to completely dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department because here’s the thing…there’s a cancer.” Omar said during an interview. “The Minneapolis Police Department is rotten to the root, and so when we dismantle it, we get rid of that cancer.”
