Nobody personifies Big Government quite like Bloomberg, the former three-term mayor of New York City. He was so influential in that position that he was able to add a term to what had been a two-term job.

Thanks to him, the infamous and ridiculous New York City large soda ban was implemented on Sept. 13, 2012, although it was overturned in court six months later. The arbitrary and unworkable regulation barred some New York businesses from selling sodas larger than 16 oz. Bloomberg claimed this ban would help people, since they “don’t have the ability to take care of themselves.” That comment represented an essential tenet of the liberal elite’s worldview. 

The media drank up Bloomberg’s nanny-state soda ban, often gushing about it. 

Besides banning sugary drinks, salt and smoking within the Big Apple, Bloomberg founded Bloomberg L.P., the company which now owns Bloomberg News and Bloomberg Businessweek. He also co-founded and funds the controversial anti-gun group Mayors Against Illegal Guns.

When it comes to Bloomberg, $50 million is the number to remember. Through his $4.2 billion Bloomberg Philanthropies, Bloomberg donated $50 million to the Sierra Club to ban coal use, $50 million to Planned Parenthood (the nation’s top abortion operation) and an additional $50 million to promote gun control.

His donation to the Sierra Club boosted the “Beyond Coal” project which campaigned to put an end to the use of coal as an energy source in the U.S. Beyond Coal claimed on its website to have forced 168 coal plants to announce their “planned retirement.” According to Bloomberg Philanthropies, the $50 million donation, given over four years, “provided a significant boost” to Beyond Coal’s campaign “to retire one-third of the nation’s aging coal fleet by 2020.”

Bloomberg also gave $50 million to Family Planning 2020, as part of a joint project with Planned Parenthood to provide “reproductive health services” in Nicaragua, Burkina Faso, Senegal and Uganda. 

In 2014, 50 mayors from across the nation dropped out of Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns group. One of those, John Tkazyik from Poughkeepsie, New York, explained that he left MAIG when he discovered that “under the guise of helping mayors facing a crime and drug epidemic, MAIG intended to promote confiscation of guns from law-abiding citizens.” Soon after this backlash, Bloomberg changed the name of his organization to Everytown for Gun Safety, thus essentially sweeping any bad publicity from MAIG under the rug.
