Bloomberg’s Dangerous Use of Prison Labor Another Example of ‘Grassroots’ Lie

Why is my first inclination to wonder if the guy behind him paid for his own “I Like Mike” shirt? (Mike Bloomberg/Facebook}

U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)-“Mike Bloomberg exploited prison labor to make 2020 presidential campaign phone calls,” The Intercept reported Tuesday. “Through a third-party vendor, the Mike Bloomberg 2020 campaign contracted New Jersey-based call center company ProCom, which runs calls centers in New Jersey and Oklahoma. Two of the call centers in Oklahoma are operated out of state prisons. In at least one of the two prisons, incarcerated people were contracted to make calls on behalf of the Bloomberg campaign.”

An embarrassed Bloomberg campaign, through a paid spokesflack, made hollow excuses, saying it had severed its arrangement with the contractor and denied knowingly employing convicted criminals. Alex Friedman, managing editor of Prison Legal News dismissed that attempt by the campaign to distance itself from responsibility, likening it to retailers denying knowledge of child labor being used to produce products in Third World nations.

President Harry Truman popularized “The buck stops here,” a tacit admission that he ultimately owned his administration’s mistakes. If elected president, Bloomberg would become commander-in-chief, including of the United States Navy, which holds the captain of a ship accountable. In this case, the top guy has sent paid flunkies out to point fingers and make excuses for him. When it comes to admitting errors in executing his agenda, the man who would be king comes off more like Bart Simpson:

“I didn't do it, nobody saw me do it, there's no way you can prove anything!”

Like all political campaigns, money means the difference between getting the message out or not. That said, in Bloomberg’s case, it’s yet another example of how the citizen disarmament push at the center of his obsession to control others does not enjoy the serious popular support his professionally-produced paid propaganda swindles the public into believing exists. And that includes the nod-and-wink supporting “news” pieces by the “independent” (Honest! You believe us about that, don’t you?) The Trace.

It also included the undocumented claim by the Bloomberg-funded Moms Demand Action that it has “Nearly 6 million supporters” (underlined emphasis in original). The puffing up to make themselves appear bigger than they are is a bluff some animals use, and while trying to look up the right word for the phenomenon, I came across an explanation that may not be scientific, but it sure seems to have things pegged:

“…it is called deception.”

In anti-gun politics, when a group funded by moneyed special interests tries to pass itself off as “grassroots,” it’s called “Astroturf.”

Those “supporters” (an unknown number of whom simply appear on email lists for a variety of reasons, not all of them supportive) are hardly looked upon as sure bets for Bloomberg, as his FEC-regulated campaign had to “rent” their contact information and related data from an IRS-regulated entity in what appears to be a violation of the Moms’ privacy policy pledge.

What’s clear is that the Bloomberg campaign is targeting people it believes to be voters who support the candidate’s positions on “gun control.” That it was using prisoners to do it makes it fair to ask how that equates with the fraudulent and impossible promise of “commonsense safety.”

It’s ironic that a pool of voters presumed sympathetic to the government disarming them had personal information shared with convicted criminals who were given the tools to reach out and find out more about them. It’s fair to assume that could include soliciting financial support and all that implies in terms of donations. It’s also fair to wonder what protections were in place to assure such information was not shared with accomplices on the outside, including where promising prospects might live, and if sound like they practice what they preach in terms of walking the “No Guns” walk.

I know I told all this before, but I will repeat it for the noobs: A friend of mine was dating a New York Lawyer. I came over to his place with my Israeli FALO, heavy barrel FNFAL, as he wanted to see it. His girlfriend asked “Is that a gun?”. I said “no” and as I pulled out the squad automatic weapon I said “It is THE gun!” She turned in sheer terror and ran straight into the wall. People from New York, and other cities, have been trained from birth that guns are bad. You will not change… Read more »

Lenin said “Give me the children and I will transform the country.” DONE. Thanks to Jimmy Carter’s creation of the Dept. of Propaganda…er, Education. That is one of the 45 point plan to over take America without firing a shot….Take over the Education System. DONE

They’re virtually indistinguishable, but in my experience, the politicians are the ones who break the law in broad daylight and GET AWAY WITH IT WITH THE BLESSING OF THE MSM ENEMY PROPAGANDA MINISTRY.

WF, Now you’re really starting to impress me. I love it when we venture out of the false narrative into reality. I could go much further on this issue but I can’t load up my info. AL needs to add an “attach” capability.

Mikey is deluded. He is from, and continues to inhabit, the world of the priviledged elites in Noo Yawk…. Andrew Sullivan is one of the earlier examples of this mindset. His power extended to every nook and cranny of that chitty, and his nimble fingers poked into everyplace. NOTHING happened or didn’t happen except upon his approval. HE is the guy who got enacted the first real gun control laws in the US, and they only restricted the class of people HE wanted restricted.. his rival gangs. Bloomie grew up in the shadoes of such a culture, and has made… Read more »

WB, No, those real large plastic coffins that are black and stacked up in the millions around the country. http://www.truthandaction.org/fema-orders-1-billion-dollars-worth-disposable-coffin-liners/

And, it’s good to know your still hanging in there because it’s getting kinda creepy around here now.

@USA, Wow, the carrot (MREs) and the stick (coffins). Support the government and get fed or fight against the government and get a disposable coffin. Someone is thinking ahead.
These are just two more reasons to be patient until we can get the libtards to rise up in armed revolt, and then Restore the Republic.
Thanks for the link.

WB, Perhaps the only thing the left has done properly is purchase their coffins in advance. It’s funny that they thought they were subverting us while playing right into our hand, George Washington I’m sure is proud of us.

His use of prison labor is a dry run for when he is elected. He has a prison warden / slave owner mentality. He has proven that with his soda size ban, his want of a salt ban and weapons bans. If you are banning such lowly things as soda no bridge is too far at that point. The sooner we start pointing out this slave owner mentality the better

Looks like he was giving his friends in prison something to do. Bloomberg is the enemy of the people. Never forget that.

Thou shalt not bear false witness.

Of course he knew. He’s so smart and well informed.

We know this because he tells us so.

Bloomberg is another self-important “Vulture Capitalist” (Tucker Carlson term) who would screw us over for profit.

Shame on him.
