Mike Bloomberg launching “Mike for Black America” during stop in Houston

Published

on

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — Presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg launched “Mike for Black America,” his national movement focusing on key issues impacting black Americans, during his fifth campaign trip to Texas.

He made his way back to Houston Thursday with a special announcement from Mayor Sylvester Turner.

Turner recently endorsed Bloomberg for president.

He has praised Bloomberg’s infrastructure vision that confronts challenges across the country and in Houston.

During Bloomberg’s stop, he visited the Buffalo Soldiers National Museum.

The former New York mayor spoke at the National Newspaper Publishers Association’s Future of Black America Symposium earlier this month.

“I’m running for office to make sure every student in every neighborhood has the same opportunities that I did,” Bloomberg said. “Because the truth is, if I had been black, I wouldn’t have had the same opportunities and my life would have turned out very differently.”

Sanders’ Rivals ‘Might As Well Crown Bernie To Take On Trump’ If They Won’t Stop Splitting Vote, Says Laurence Tribe

Published

on

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ Democratic rivals “might as well crown” him as the candidate to “take on Trump,” unless they are willing to stop splitting up the vote in the primary race, Harvard Law School Professor Laurence Tribe warned.

With Sanders projected to win big at the Nevada caucuses, strengthening his status as the Democratic frontrunner to take on President Donald Trump, Tribe warned that the race was too crowded for the democratic socialist’s rivals to take him down.

All six of the democratic socialist’s top competitors “have plenty to offer as alternatives to Sanders,” Tribe, the Carl M. Loeb University Professor at Harvard Law School, said in a statement on Twitter. However, he said, unless they “triage and reduce the 6 to 1, they might as well crown Bernie to take on Trump.”

“It’s tough,” said Tribe, who has been an outspoken critic of Sanders throughout the 2020 Democratic race. “I know, but it is what it is.”

Naming former Vice President Joe Biden, Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar, former Mayors Mike Bloomberg and Pete Buttigieg, and philanthropist Tom Steyer, as the top six Democratic hopefuls competing with Sanders in the bid to take on Trump, Tribe suggested that they consolidate their strengths and throw their weight behind one candidate.

It is unclear which of the six contenders Tribe believes should be the one to go toe-to-toe with Sanders. But his primary argument appeared to be that unless Democratic contenders cut down the competition, Sanders may always come out ahead. Newsweek has contacted Tribe for further comment.

While Tribe has been critical of Sanders’ candidacy for president in the past, he has also made clear that the notion of supporting Trump over the democratic socialist is “incomprehensible” to him.

Some people on Twitter disagreed with the professor’s assertion that the only way for another Democratic contender to defeat Sanders would be to cut down the competition.

“If you think Bloomberg and Warren should unite based on their [ideological] similarities to stop Bernie, your brain is broken,” television writer Guy Endore-Kaiser said in response to Tribe’s plan.

Others suggested that it was still too early in the race for Sanders’ competitors to either step down or hand the democratic socialist the crown.

Indeed, there is still a long way to go until a Democratic nominee can be confirmed.

While Biden did not see the results he likely anticipated in Iowa and New Hampshire, the former vice president appeared to hold second place in Nevada, as of early Sunday morning.

Sanders, however, was declared the winner not long after results streamed in Saturday night. By early Sunday morning, with 50 percent of precincts reporting, Sanders held 46.6 percent of the vote, compared to Biden’s 19.2 percent, according to the Associated Press. Meanwhile, Buttigieg was at 15.4 percent, Warren at 10.3 percent, Klobuchar at 4.5 percent and Steyer at 3.8 percent. Bloomberg was not on the ballot.

Sanders was quick to celebrate his apparent victory.

“We won Nevada!” he said on Twitter. “We are building an unprecedented grassroots movement, and together, there is nothing we cannot accomplish,” he said.

Walmart.com banned me, and I don’t know why

Published

on

Q: I’m having two problems with Walmart. When I order food online, Walmart has repeatedly delivered expired and rotten food. Also, I’ve had problems with Walmart.com. I’ve been getting error messages on the site for the past 10 days when I try to check out. I can’t make a purchase.

Christopher Elliott 

Walmart customer service has given me all kinds of insane excuses for these issues. It continues to engage in unethical antics that insult and ridicule me as a homebound disabled person.

For example, Walmart customer service has repeatedly advised me to “go to the store” for my groceries, since the website is not working. I have explained that I am disabled and cannot physically get to the store.
