The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

It’s controversial, but … 95 percent of your murders, and murderers, and murder victims fit one [description]. You can just take the description, Xerox it, and pass it out to all of the cops. They are male, minorities, 15 to 25. That’s true in New York, it’s true in virtually every city in America.”

Second Amendment | NY Times, 12/5/2019 | Bloomberg Proposes Sweeping Gun Agenda, Including Federal Licensing

“Michael R. Bloomberg proposed a sweeping array of federal gun-control measures on Thursday, calling for a national gun licensing system and stricter background checks, hundreds of millions of dollars in new enforcement spending and the passage of a federal red-flag law that would allow courts to temporarily confiscate firearms from people deemed dangerous.”Most know that Bloomberg is a radically anti-Second Amendment who has spent millions destroying gun rights. In fact, the New York Times once wrote that Bloomberg’s gun control agenda went too far. For example, In Washington State, Michael Bloomberg and some of his favorite anti-gun billionaires spent $4,661,572 for advertising that pushed through the anti-Second Amendment I-1639, despite overwhelming law enforcement opposition  His Everytown for Gun Safety group spent $2.5 million to help promote the Democrats into the majority in Virginia. Based on that new liberal majority left-wing Va. Gov. Northam told his cabinet that removing gun rights, including confiscating some people’s firearms, would be one of his first priorities.

Jewish Press, 11/10/2019 As Mayor, Michael Bloomberg Was A Tyrant

Public Health | Reuters, 7/13/2013 | Bloomberg’s ban on big sodas is unconstitutional: appeals court

“In particular, the court focused on the law’s loopholes, which exempted businesses not under the auspices of the city’s health department and left certain drinks, such as milk-based beverages, unaffected.

As a result, grocery and convenience stores – such as 7 Eleven and its 64-ounce Big Gulp – were protected from the ban’s reach, even as restaurants, sandwich shops and movie theaters were not. Meanwhile, milkshakes and high-calorie coffee drinks like Starbucks’ Frappucinos would have remained unfettered.

“The exceptions did not … reflect the agency’s charge to protect public health but instead reflected the agency’s own policy decisions regarding balancing the relative importance of protecting public health with ensuring the economic viability of certain industries,” Justice Dianne Renwick wrote for the court.”

Summary

Bloomberg is described as a narcissist. What is narcissism? “excessive love or admiration for oneself

So much more can be reported about his policy history, but his obsessive campaigns to disarm Americans will be central to everything he does.

He has also been described as a tyrant and his track record supports this description. As Mayor of NY City, he trampled the Constitution. As President he would trample the Constitution an a scale hitherto never seen before.

As Bloomberg behaved toward the people of NY City, dramatic increases in federal taxes are to be expected, based on his track record.

How is Bloomberg different from his fellow Democrat candidate Bernie Sanders? Sanders is honest about his plan for socialism; Bloomberg disguises his plan for socialism.

In short, the United States of America would become a socialist nanny state.
