FLASHBACK: Bernie Calls for Sweeping Gun Bans, Would Strip Americans of Their Rights

Just like a Democrat Socialist, isn’t it?

In light of the New Zealand mosque shooting where 50 innocent people were murdered, the nation’s prime minister banned “military-style semi-automatic” guns.

Democrat Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (VT) is all in favor.

The problem is that he wants to do the same thing over here…in America.

Wouldn’t that be swell? Who needs Second Amendment rights, huh?

As noted by Ryan Saavedra:

Bernie Sanders announces he supports confiscating all semi-automatic firearms from law abiding citizens, which is what New Zealand is doing

Bernie’s tweet:

This is what real action to stop gun violence looks like. We must follow New Zealand’s lead, take on the NRA and ban the sale and distribution of assault weapons in the United States.

The 2020 presidential candidate, if elected POTUS, would almost certainly rip up the Second Amendment.

More on New Zealand, per Fox News:

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern on Thursday announced the country was immediately banning “military-style semi-automatic weapons” after last week’s attack that killed 50 people at two mosques.

Ardern noted, “As I’ve said, what we’ve done here is taken out the guns out of circulation that are most critical to be addressed urgently and that’s what we’ve announced, with essentially almost immediate effect.

Ardern added: “There is more to be done and tranche two will look at issues around licensing, issues around registration, issues around storage. There are a range of other amendments that we believe do need to be made and that will be the second tranche of reforms yet to come.

Sanders and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) don’t believe in the “America first” philosophy.

That could not be more evident in light of a new report claiming the pair have a plan to kill the booming stock market.

From National Review:

When a company repurchases shares, their value rises, and employees benefit. The senators think something is wrong with that.

Senators Chuck Schumer of New York and Bernie Sanders of Vermont want to penalize “self-indulgent” corporations that buy back their own stock. In a recent article in the New York Times, they argued that when companies repurchase shares, not only do the vast majority of Americans not benefit, but income inequality is exacerbated since only wealthy shareholders and corporate management profit.

Continued:

Despite decades of extraordinary success that the United States has enjoyed and that we enjoy today, Schumer and Sanders believe that something sinister is taking place in the corporate world. They call buybacks a form of “corporate self-indulgence.” Why? Because […]

[…] corporate boardrooms have become obsessed with maximizing only shareholder earnings to the detriment of workers and the long-term strength of their companies. . . . Companies, rather than investing in ways to make their businesses more resilient or their workers more productive, have been dedicating ever larger shares of their profits to dividends and corporate repurchases.

Sanders has a trippy past that involves being a hippie and praising the communist ways of the USSR.

So, there’s something for Democrats to consider.

Trump Lays The Smack Down On Iran, Orders New Sanctions In Light Of Saudi Oil Attacks

This is what true leadership looks like.

Published

on

President Trump is once again proving he’s a strong leader when it comes to America’s presence on the geopolitical stage, having ordered the Treasury Department to “substantially increase” sanctions on the Middle East country of Iran in the wake of drone attacks on two oil facilities in Saudi Arabia. This, ladies and gentlemen, was the kind of leadership that was sorely lacking during the Obama years. If he were still president, he’d probably ship them some more cash flow and beg for their forgiveness for some fake imaginary slight he thinks we committed to facilitate such action. via The Daily Wire: “I have just instructed the Secretary of the Treasury to substantially increase Sanctions on the country of Iran!” Trump wrote on Twitter. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1174305447513186304 It was not immediately clear exactly what he instructed Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin to do. The U.S. has long had punitive sanctions in place against Iran. Trump’s move comes after drone strikes on Saturday that severely damaged a crude-processing plant and oil field in Saudi Arabia, which is the largest in the world. The U.S. and the Saudis have accused Iran of perpetrating the attacks. The drone strikes prompted an immediate spike in crude prices, which experts said could soon raise the price of gas by 20 cents or more in the U.S. After Trump’s announcement on Wednesday, oil prices fell. Iran is once again looking to stir the pot and get some attention, though the reason why is unknown at this point. There’s no doubt the America hating nation would love to have some sort of armed conflict with our country, as they are major supporters of radical Islamic terrorism and believe that a third world war, which includes America, must happen to usher in the end times. Whether or not that’s truly their intent,…

Thanks, Obama!

High school has to be tough for kids these days. Well, for kids who lean conservative. For liberal kids, life is a breeze. Just slam President Trump and the Republican Party and you’re golden. Check out what recently happened in North Carolina… From Daily Wire: On Monday, cheerleaders from a North Carolina high school were put on probation for the remainder of the football season for posing with a Trump 2020 banner before a football game on August 30. The North Stanly High School cheerleading squad was placed on probation by the #NCHSAA for posing with a #Trump banner before a game. Officials say all #NC schools have a policy against displaying political signs. https://twitter.com/WCCBCharlotte/status/1173982479574851584?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1173982479574851584&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F51878%2Fhigh-school-cheerleaders-put-probation-posing-hank-berrien Here’s the photo: The photo was posted on Facebook, prompting some commenters to take issue; one wrote, “Why in the world would the school board allow this to happen. I am sad and very disappointed with NS. This is a High School football game, not a political rally. Shame on them,” as The Daily Mail noted. NCHSAA Commissioner Que Tucker told McClatchy news group that probation is not punishment, but rather, “It serves as a notice of behavior or action that is against NCHSAA Handbook Policy or contrary to expectations of sportsmanship and proper behavior,” according to the Charlotte Observer. She also said, “One of the rules we have is that every contest should be conducted in a wholesome, athletic environment. We take that to mean that it’s in an environment where good sportsmanship is shown, where people feel safe…that respect for all people participating is being shown,” according to thesnaponline.
