Hillary voted against CHILD SAFETY LOCKS on guns. Bernie voted for the locks.

Seems like Hillary should have some explaining to do.

Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act of 2005

(Sec. 5) Child Safety Lock Act of 2005 - Prohibits the sale, delivery, or transfer by a licensed importer, manufacturer, or dealer of a handgun to any person other than a person with a firearms license unless the transferee is provided with a secure gun storage or safety device. Lists exceptions, including for U.S. and state agencies and for law enforcement. Grants immunity from a qualified civil liability action for a person who has lawful possession and control of a handgun and who uses a secure gun storage or safety device. Establishes as penalties for violations: (1) license revocation or suspension for up to six months; or (2) a civil penalty of up to $2,500.

Hillary voted _against_ banning armor piercing "cop-killer" bullets- Bernie voted for the ban

That was one of the good things in the "Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act".


(Sec. 6) Sets penalties for using or carrying armor piercing ammunition during and in relation to a crime of violence or a drug trafficking crime, and for possessing armor piercing ammunition in furtherance of any such crime, that shall be in addition to the punishment otherwise provided for such crime.

What was Hillary thinking? Why did she vote against the ban on cop-killer bullets?

Hillary has been a friend of the gun and ammo industries

Winchester rifle ammo with bullets designed to fragment and spread in the target’s body


Big Ammo: Clinton is raising money from gunpowder lobbyists and investors

At the Democratic debate on 14 April 2016, Hillary Clinton said that “we need a president who will stand up against the gun lobby.” However Secretary of State Clinton effectively stood with the gun lobby as she approved millions in revenue for two huge gunpowder mills. Since then she has received payments from numerous ammunition industry stakeholders, including over $160,000 in contributions from her campaign chair’s brother, ammo lobbyist Anthony Podesta.

While Clinton has been connected to the gunmakers that make the assault rifles used in American massacres and an NRA lobbyist, less attention has been paid to her ties to ammunition manufacturers that also play a central role in the gun lobby. In the financial years ending in 2010 and 2011, Secretary Clinton approved sales of ammunition worth upwards of $345 million. The approvals included those for a gunpowder giant that Clinton is especially close to.

Clinton approved sales for NRA-allied ammunition suppliers. Pentagon reports show that in the two years ending June 2011, Clinton approved more than $144 million in gun and ammunition sales for General Dynamics (GD) as well as $34 million in ammunition sales for GD’s gunpowder client, Winchester. Though GD does not itself sell ammunition directly to the retail market, their St Mark’s Powder mill is a major wholesale supplier of gunpowder for domestic commercial ammo brands like Challenger, Samson, Ramshot, Blazer, Hodgdon and Winchester. General Dynamics gunpowders include formulation 748, “the powder of choice for 223 Remington ammunition.” Remington 223 ammunition is used in AR-15 assault rifles, the type of guns that were used in both the Sandy Hook and San Bernardino massacres. Winchester sells ammunition to American consumers, and is a strong supporter of the gun lobby. Winchester has close ties with the National Rifle Association specifically, co-sponsoring a shooting education program with the NRA.







Clinton was paid by the ammo companies’ owners. In addition to receiving contributions from a gunpowder lobbyist, Clinton received a variety of payments from the shareholders of gunpowder and ammunition companies. Institutional investors The Vanguard Group and the BlackRock fund hold nearly 6% and nearly 3% of General Dynamics shares respectively. Vanguard and BlackRock also hold over 7% and 6% of shares respectively in the parent company of Winchester. Vanguard has paid Clinton $400,000 in speaking fees, while BlackRock has contributed $22,060 to Clinton’s campaigns since 1999

Clinton’s Foundation took donations from ammo buyers. Clinton is also connected to the ammunition sales through her friends and donors. Clinton-approved GD customers included the regime of Clinton’s family friend, dictator Hosni Mubarak of Egypt, who bought $11 million of GD ammo in the year leading up to the Arab Spring democracy protests. Clinton benefactor the United Arab Emirates bought $44 million of GD grenades and accessories after donating upwards of $1 million to her Foundation.

Clinton Defenders Do Insane Mental Gymnastics To Slam Bernie

In the Strip Clubs of Joy Reid’s Mind... Why We’re Done With MSNBC

We were never big fans of Rachel Maddow. To us she comes across as the Brady Bunch’s housekeeper on Dexedrine. Opening each show with an off point 47-minute “tutorial” that she and her self-reverential staff treat as the most profound insights since Herodotus chose Persia as a topic.

What pushed us completely over the edge was her absolutely deliberate misrepresentation of Bernie Sanders’ response to Trump’s obscene “punishment for women” abortion comments. She went running back to Hillary Clinton for a comment faster than Ann B. Davis sharing the latest gossip with Sam The Butcher.

Yet even Maddow’s didactic yammering is preferable to the cackling adulation with which she showers Brian “Pseudo-Pith” Williams. Williams, who is unqualified for any television work beyond extolling the virtues of Rodent Sheriff, truly loves him some him. He is to journalism what Edward R. Murrow was to the spit take. Watching Maddow match her facial expressions to whatever banal dreck cascades from Williams’ gob is like watching the Huntley-Brinkley Report as done by Wayland Flowers and Madame.

Then there’s Chris Matthews, who has never employed a thought for any other purpose than to get to the end of a sentence. Though the tip jar on his desk for contributions to the wife’s campaign is certainly a novel touch. There’s Mrs. Greenspan, stenographer to the liquid. There’s the once great Chris Hayes, who, like something out of Kafka, awoke one day to discover he’s Morton Kondracke.

Senator Claire McCaskill on Bill Clinton: A great leader but I don't want my daughter near him



Senator McCaskill seems to be implying she's afraid Bill Clinton would sexually assault her daughter if they were left alone together. Do I understand her meaning correctly?

Hillary Clinton Delegate Will Oversee New York Primary Audit

We have investigated ourselves and our record is spotless

Scott Stringer, the New York City comptroller who ordered the audit of the New York City Board of Elections, is on the record as a Hillary Clinton delegate.

In a primary election fraught with voter suppression complaints, prompting an official investigation from New York’s Attorney General, a Hillary Clinton delegate in charge of overseeing the audit of New York City’s voting processes raises red flags. However, Stringer told BuzzFeed News that if he finds any issues that require him to recuse himself, he will.

“I’m not auditing the election results,” Stringer said. “We are auditing the management of the agency that conducts the elections.”

Stringer’s name is found on page 9 of the State of New York’s official primary certification documents, listed as a Hillary Clinton delegate from New York’s 10th Congressional District, which covers parts of Manhattan and Brooklyn. Stringer, who previously served as borough president of Manhattan, got a higher percentage of the vote (10.3 percent) during Tuesday’s primaries than any other delegate in the district, according to BuzzFeed.
