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.

Save conservative media!

Biden Says Politics Is Going ‘To Come Back And Whack’ President Trump

Published

on

Former Vice President Joe Biden recently decided to take a swipe at President Donald Trump, claiming that politics would “whack” the commander-in-chief, leading many to wonder what exactly is meant by that particular comment. Biden, 76, made the comment during a town hall special broadcast on CNN, in which he attempted to explain how modern day politics had gotten so out of control under Sen. Mitch McConnell and Trump. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “Politics today has gotten so mean and ugly and dirty and everybody questioning motive and not focusing at all on trying to put things together instead of disagreeing on substance, you go to motive,” said Biden. “It has become so, so difficult for Republicans to be able to, unless they have real courage, to stand up and take on the president even if they think he should be taken on.” He went on to tie in McConnell and referenced his decision to block a vote to confirm Judge Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court. Biden claimed he suggested Garland to President Barack Obama because he thought Republicans would vote to confirm him. “They know what they were doing was wrong,” Biden said. He added, “The politics has gotten just so out of whack, but it’s going to come back and whack — heh — this guy.” https://youtu.be/vwzsbIrVn88 Some individuals were upset by the comment, claiming it was a joke about “whacking” — killing — the president. Others mocked Biden for the lame comment. https://twitter.com/SteveGuest/status/1194080088582754304 https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1194084597270749184 Biden is the current frontrunner in the Democratic Party presidential primary, though it’s been a fight and struggle for him to maintain that top spot in a crowded field that includes Sen. Elizabeth Warren and many others.

Social media companies are starting to crack down on any mentions of the “whistleblower” whose complaint about President Trump’s phone conversation with Ukrainian leadership is responsible for the current impeachment inquiry, according to a brand new report. While the alleged name of the whistleblower has been making the rounds online in alternative media websites, social media giants like Facebook and YouTube are calling the publishing of the individual’s name a violation of their “coordinating harm policy.” Here’s more from Fox News: On Saturday, Twitter was the only major social network to resist the change, with users still free to publish the name of the alleged whistleblower. Tweets from big-name conservative Twitter users like Candace Owens and Donald Trump, Jr. revealing the name have gone viral in recent days. “Per our private information policy, any tweets that include personally identifiable information about any individual, including the alleged whistleblower, would be in violation of the Twitter Rules,” The Post reported.
