Germany to Boost Electric-Car Incentives in Push to Lift Demand

  Germany to Boost Electric-Car Incentives in Push to Lift Demand Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government and Germany’s carmakers agreed to increase cash incentives for electric cars to as much as 6,000 euros ($6,676) per vehicle in an effort to lift demand. “The switch to e-mobility has never been so attractive,” Helge Braun, Merkel’s chief of staff, wrote in a tweet after Monday evening’s meeting in Berlin between the Chancellery and officials from automakers, parts suppliers and labor unions.Read more: Merkel Cheers VW’s Electric Push Amid Growing Climate CritiqueThe current incentive program will be expanded and extended.

Ultimately, Bloomberg endorsed Barack Obama . . . five days before the November vote – and only after flirting with Mitt Romney’s campaign. 20) and Elizabeth Warren (she turned 70 in June) looking like antiquated Soviet apparatchiks standing atop Lenin’s Tomb. So it’s now or never for Bloomberg .

According to The New York Times, his advisers say he hasn’t made up his mind yet. But I have.

Let me plant the stake now: No black person — or Hispanic person or ally of people of color — should ever even consider voting for Michael Bloomberg in the primary. His expansion of the notoriously racist stop-and-frisk program in New York, which swept up millions of innocent New Yorkers, primarily young black and Hispanic men, is a complete and nonnegotiable deal killer.

Stop-and-frisk, pushed as a way to get guns and other contraband off the streets, became nothing short of a massive, enduring, city-sanctioned system of racial terror.

Free YouTube Videos Fuel Philippine Phone-Data Surge, Globe Says

  Free YouTube Videos Fuel Philippine Phone-Data Surge, Globe Says Filipinos viewing free videos on YouTube and streaming content on social media platforms are fueling smartphone data usage in the country, Globe Telecom Inc. president Ernest Cu said. Data now accounts for 70% of the Philippine telecommunications carrier’s service revenue, compared with 53% two years ago, according to the company. On Wednesday, the firm reported a profit of 5.6 billion pesos ($110.6 million) for the quarter through September.“Video is a big driver,” Cu told Bloomberg Television’s Haslinda Amin and Rishaad Salamat on Thursday. “Free content equates to quite significant data usage.

Bloomberg has toyed with a presidential bid in the past, but decided not to pursue such a run at the time. According to his camp, he has officially changed his mind. Let's remember that Bloomberg is also the man who extended the New York City mayoral term to give himself more time in power.

This system of terror exploded under Bloomberg, with his full advocacy and support.

In 2002, the first year Bloomberg was mayor, 97,296 of these stops were recorded. They surged during Bloomberg’s tenure to a peak of 685,724 stops in 2011, near the end of his third term. Nearly 90 percent of the people who were stopped and frisked were innocent of any wrongdoing.

A New York Times analysis of stops on “eight odd blocks” in the overwhelmingly black neighborhood of Brownsville in Brooklyn found close to 52,000 stops over four years, which averaged out to “nearly one stop a year for every one of the 14,000 residents of these blocks.”

In 2009, there were more than 580,000 stop-and-frisks, a record at the time. Of those stopped, 55 percent were black, 32 percent Hispanic and only 10 percent white. Most were young, and almost all were male. Eighty-eight percent were innocent. For reference, according to the Census Bureau, there were about 300,000 black men between the ages of 13 and 34 living in the city that year.

Michael Bloomberg opens door to 2020 presidential campaign

  Michael Bloomberg opens door to 2020 presidential campaign Michael Bloomberg, the billionaire former mayor of New York City, is opening the door to a 2020 presidential campaign. Bloomberg announced earlier this year that he would not seek the Democratic nomination. But in a statement Thursday, his political adviser Howard Wolfson says Bloomberg is worried that the current crop of Democratic presidential candidates is "not well positioned" to defeat President Donald Trump. A BloombergBloomberg announced earlier this year that he would not seek the Democratic nomination.

The Issue. It is election day, and here in New York we are voting for mayor, or, more accurately, not Cohen never attends to the possibility that ‘Get out the vote ’ drives have a broader aim, namely, to You must enrol to vote when you turn 18 and once enrolled when an election is called unless you

Not only that, but those who were stopped had their names entered into a comprehensive police database, even if they were never accused of committing a crime. As Donna Lieberman, then the executive director of the New York Civil Liberties Union, said in 2010, the database became a place “where millions of completely innocent, predominantly black and Latinos have been turned into permanent police suspects.”

The state outlawed the keeping of these electronic records on the innocent, over the strong objections of Bloomberg and his police chief.

Bloomberg used the fear factor to keep white New Yorkers in his corner. He insisted that stop-and-frisk was keeping them safe and that without it crime would soar.

And his ruse worked. In eight separate surveys from 2012 to 2013, pollsters at Quinnipiac University asked New Yorkers if they approved of stop-and-frisk. Every single time, a majority of white New Yorkers said they approved.

But Bloomberg’s crime argument was dubious. The Columbia Law School professor Jeffrey Fagan produced a report that became part of a class-action lawsuit against the city in 2010. It found that: “[s]eizures of weapons or contraband are extremely rare. Overall, guns are seized in less than 1 percent of all stops: 0.15 percent … Contraband, which may include weapons but also includes drugs or stolen property, is seized in 1.75 percent of all stops.”

Mr. Bloomberg has as much of a chance of winning 270 electoral votes as the proverbial camel has of passing through the eye of a needle. The bottom line is this: to be elected president of the United States, a candidate must win at least 270 votes in the Electoral College.

The prospective Mayoral campaign of Michael Bloomberg makesinteresting food for thought. I myself will almost surely vote for him if he chooses to run. keep in order to get them. While most of the regulars on the rubber foie-gras. circuit are decent folk of honest, generous intent, others must be

As Fagan wrote, “The N.Y.P.D. stop-and-frisk tactics produce rates of seizures of guns or other contraband that are no greater than would be produced simply by chance.”

And, as the New York Civil Liberties Union wrote this year:

“Since Mayor de Blasio came into office in January 2014, the N.Y.P.D. now reports about 10,000 stops per year. As stops have receded, crime in New York City has dropped significantly. In 2018, New York City recorded the lowest number of homicides in nearly 70 years.”

So Bloomberg’s fear mongering was all a lie.

A federal judge ruled in 2013 that New York’s stop-and-frisk tactics violated the constitutional rights of racial minorities, calling it a “policy of indirect racial profiling.”

Yet, a little over a month before that ruling, Bloomberg said on a radio show, “I think we disproportionately stop whites too much and minorities too little.” As USA Today pointed out at the time: “About 5 million stops have been made during the past decade. Eighty-seven percent of those stopped in the last two years were black or Hispanic.”

Not only has Bloomberg failed to express any regret for what he did, he has continued to defend it.

It is worth noting that there is virtually no difference between Bloomberg cheerleading stop-and-frisk and Donald Trump musing during the last election about somehow instituting the program nationwide.

Bloomberg leads Trump by 6 points in 2020 election matchup

  Bloomberg leads Trump by 6 points in 2020 election matchup Forty-three percent of likely voters would back Bloomberg if the election were held today, compared to 37% who would vote for Trump. Bloomberg is currently in sixth place, with just 4% of Democratic primary voters backing him. Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg leads President Donald Trump by 6 percentage points in a hypothetical 2020 matchup, according to a new Morning Consult/Politico poll.

Bloomberg will have to use his deep pockets to quickly play catch-up in the primary race, as he still has yet to build any sort of infrastructure in the early primary A Fox News poll conducted in late October found that only 6% of respondents would definitely vote for Bloomberg if he got into the race, while

The last time the media tycoon Michael Bloomberg considered a run for the American presidency, he eventually decided against it because he didn’t think the American people would vote for a New York billionaire. Now that a New York billionaire sits in the White House that objection clearly no longer

Just the idea of Bloomberg in the race is odious to me. And support for his candidacy incenses me. Anyone who would support Bloomberg is complicit in his terror campaign against those young black and Hispanic men — and dismissive of their pain.

If you support Bloomberg, I want nothing to do with you. Nothing!
