Billionaire right-wing media mogul Rupert Murdoch wants Mike Bloomberg to run for President

There’s very people whose current livelihood could actually be threatened by a hypothetical Bernie Sanders Administration, but one of them is Rupert Murdoch.

There’s not that many Republicans and conservatives who wouldn’t support Donald Trump unless they absolutely had to, but one of them is Rupert Murdoch.

Guess who Rupert Murdoch, the head of the 21st Century FOX/News Corporation media empire, wants to see run for president…billionaire Mike Bloomberg, who is considering an independent presidential bid:

Not surprisingly, Bloomberg’s ideology, on many issues, lines up with that of Murdoch. Bloomberg tried to destroy public education in New York City as mayor, and he’s also an apologist for greed on Wall Street.¬†With political allies like Rupert Murdoch, it’s clear that Mike Bloomberg is wrong for America.

Mike Bloomberg’s possible presidential run is probably a Clintonite attempt to undermine Bernie

I strongly suspect that the fact that Mike Bloomberg is considering an independent or third-party presidential bid is possibly tied to the fact that Hillary Clinton may be losing her bid for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Maybe it’s just coincidental that Bloomberg has been conducting internal polls and now is formally exploring a presidential bid at the same time that recent opinion polls have shown that Bernie Sanders has a ton of momentum going into next Tuesday’s Iowa Caucuses. However, I strongly suspect that it’s more than a coincidence. For starters, Bloomberg, despite being a former Republican, is ideologically similar to Hillary. Secondly, when it comes to issues like education and finance industry regulation, Bloomberg is anti-public education and pro-Wall Street. Those are where Hillary and Bloomberg line up.

I will not let Hillary Clinton and her ilk extort me into supporting her or any other corporatist political candidate. I am backing Bernie Sanders for the Democratic presidential nomination, and I will back the Democratic presidential nominee in the general election.
