Hillary Clinton, The Hypocrite, Takes Money From The NRA

Hillary Clinton cannot keep her stories straight. First she’s against the NRA. Then she takes money from their lobbyist, Jeff Forbes.

Josh Schwerin, a spokesman for Mrs. Clinton, wrote in an emailed statement: Hillary Clinton is the only candidate with a record of standing up to the NRA and the more than 850,000 people who have contributed to her campaign know exactly where she stands.

And then, Mrs. Clinton held a fund raiser in Washington on March 21. One of its hosts is Jeff Forbes, who until the end of last year (a few months ago) worked for six years as a lobbyist for the National Rifle Association. This ties in well with the fact Mrs. Clinton’s “biggest” campaign bundlers are oil industry lobbyists.

The Huffington Post released news in advance of Mrs. Clinton accepting the money raised from Jeff Forbes, causing her to rearrange her schedule. She went to Arizona, and sent her husband (former President Bill Clinton) to deal with Jeff Forbes. It seems Mrs. Clinton is not completely comfortable taking money raised by a former(?) NRA lobbyist, so she sent her husband to collect the money.

Jeff Forbes donated $2,700 to the Clinton campaign in April when he was still registered to lobby against gun control. His colleague at the Forbes-Tate lobbying shop, Elizabeth Greer, also donated $2,700 while registered to lobby for the NRA. This is possible because Mrs. Clinton declined to apply President Obama’s ban on contributions from lobbyists, to her own campaign. The Democratic National Committee is also ending the Obama ban on lobbyist contributions, per Mrs. Clinton’s friend, DNC Chair, Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

Banning lobbyist donations prevents the expectation of donors and voters that the policies are dictated by corporations and the rich paying off the candidates with bribes.

Mrs. Clinton, the hypocrite, has publicly criticized Bernie Sanders for voting against 1994 gun-control legislation, and for supporting a bill exempting manufacturers from liability lawsuits brought by the victims of gun violence. Bernie had an issue with “one” gun control bill during a 16 year career in Congress. (Give me a break.) On liability lawsuits, consider this example. You legally manufacture steak knives, and someone uses one in a murder. Are you, the manufacturer, liable. Guns are tools. So are axes, chains, bulldozers, and screwdrivers. Anyone of these tools can be, and has been, used to kill someone. People kill. Tools just get used.

Hillary Clinton lacks ethics and good judgment. She is not qualified to be President of the United States.

    I don’t know where she thinks she is going with this. Does she think all liberals are against the 2nd amendment? As a liberal I’m against gun violence. I can see mandatory registration and background checks. I can see a manufacturer be held accountable If they are selling guns to people who can’t pass background checks. I do think registration Should be mandatory and the person the gun is registered to is accountable for the gun. I don’t understand what holding the manufacture libel for how the gun is used. It won’t hold up in court for one thing. Bernie should let it go to court. I think Hillary will find out liberal aren’t anti gun. Good luck Hillary. We all know the NRA lobbyist bundle money for your super pac. We know they are at those big money fund raisers. Hard to prove where the dark money comes from but, I’m sure they weren’t there to park cars. She really thinks she can play us as stupid. Wrong.
