Leaked Documents Allege the NRA Has Been Spending $100,000 a Day on Lawyers – Slate

I’m a blogger, not an investigative reporter. But I’ve got a good sense for numbers. So let’s see 35 million dollars a year on lawyers, 42 million dollars a year to an advertising agency, 60 million dollars towards the campaign of Donald Trump. that’s a lot of money for one nonprofit organization!

The NRA went from a gun safety organization to an organization that protects mass murders and their perpetrators.

the NRA and gun rights organizations in the US love to say that their rights are inalienable under the second amendment. Have we ever looked at the wording of the second amendment? The first words are a “well regulated militia”, regulations are in the first few words of the amendment. It was never meant to be an all out flooding of the market with high capacity and armor piercing bullets. Military-style weapons should be in the hands of the military. their arguments make as much sense as saying that we all have the right to have our own private nuclear Arsenal.

And as far as these leaked documents, they’re coming from Oliver North, one of the sleaziest people that we have had to deal with since the Reagan Era. He was the guy who sold weapons 2 hide from Congress the funding of an illegal act. Wayne LaPierre you go to bed with dogs you’re going to wake up covered in fleas.

The NRA has become a merchant of death and a very corrupt one at that.

Trump Inauguration Spending Under Criminal Investigation by Federal Prosecutors – WSJ

Yesterday Michael Cohen in his court appearance said that he was very sad that he had been taken into the grips of a famous land developer who eventually became president. I think that’s President Trump is going to be very sorry that he fell into the grips of a bad lawyer who recorded everything and now is pointing the barrel right at this Administration.

President Obama’s first inaugural hat a much larger crowd and spent half the money of the Trump inaugural. take into consideration that there were no famous names except for perhaps kid Rock, to have to make arrangements for one wonders where the money went. please understand that inaugural are not a one-off kind of deal. There is a company and Washington that does these inaugural every 4 years and their numbers are basically flat. Where did all the money go? Why were there so many Russians at the inauguration? Why was Michael Flynn texting during the inaugural that the sanctions against Russia we’re going to be dropped?

I find it fascinating that it’s Rupert Murdoch’s Wall Street journal that is reporting on this. Trump has had to make some real enemies for them to be doing this to a conservative like president.

I trust that’s there are enough people and the justice department of good moral fiber and will that will get to the bottom of this. And I’m not saying that I’m clairvoyant, but it’s starting to feel alot like Watergate.

Sanders spending night of final primary meeting with Clinton – The Washington Post

One can only hope that Senator Sanders sees the light and endorses Hillary as soon as possible. But he’s being very cagey about what he plans on doing. He says he’s going to the convention in light of who has received the most number of votes, that’s Hillary Clinton. He says that he doesn’t plan to endorse until he understands how the platform will match his beliefs and goals. Once again Hillary Clinton, won end of discussion.

A Pro-Hillary Group is spending $1 Million to take on Bernie Bros – Fortune

Each day after a debate or after an election in one of the primaries I see these online polls that say that Bernie Sanders had won the debate 521 against Hillary Clinton. When in reality at best he held his own but in fat he had lost the debate or the primary. I am somewhat internet savvy and understand that online polls have absolutely no basis in reality. That being said I am so happy to see that Hillary Clinton supporters are going to spend money on the internet to get reality back into online polls and what’s happening on Facebook and Twitter. I belong to a Hillary supporters group on Facebook that has almost 250,000 members. It’s impossible for the administrators to weed out the Bernie Sanders supporters. The Bernie Sanders supporters are rude and go in there with this scorched-earth attitude about Hillary Clinton. They are not mature enough to understand that it will be her and whomever the Republicans choose most likely Donald Trump as the choice in November. Bernie Sanders supporters do you really want to risk are Supreme Court on Donald Trump? So this is great news to me. Let’s make the internet an even playing field for Hillary Clinton.

Can Clinton Build a Bridge to Trump Supporters With Infrastructure Spending? – The Atlantic

My answer is a resounding yes.
Hillary Clinton is the only candidate that has a complete plan for bringing jobs back to this country. With her emphasis on infrastructure and clean energy jobs she gives the meat that Trump supporters are saying they’re not getting from their candidate. Her pro-small business policies will win over disenchanted Trump supporters. Yesterday was a pivotal day. Trump supporters were on camera saying they were starting to become unhappy with their candidates. Beyond her good policies she is presidential, something I cannot say for the rest of the field whether it be Democratic or Republican.
