What could the reason be?

Democrats have no reason to go after the National Rifle Association and they know it. But they’re going to do it anyway, because that’s what they think the American people want. To Democrats, Californians and New Yorkers are the only Americans who should have opinions.

On Wednesday, Congressional Dems asked the IRS and DOJ to investigate the NRA. What is it they think they’d find? Is it really worth taxpayer dollars investigating what would obviously be a sham probe?

Oh, well. What can you do? Democrats aren’t ever going to stop blasting conservatives and everything they believe in. More than loving love, liberals love to hate. That’s the bottom line.

Democrats on the House Oversight and Reform Committee have asked the Justice Department and IRS to investigate the National Rifle Association.

Reps. Gerald Connolly of Virginia and Jamie Raskin of Maryland wrote on Wednesday as leaders of subcommittees on civil rights and civil liberties and on government investigations to implore the Trump administration to investigate allegations of financial fraud at the NRA.

“Public reporting of self-dealing, private inurement of earnings, and possible financial fraud on the part of the NRA and its senior leadership represent serious allegations that demand an independent allegation by the IRS,” Mr. Connolly and Mr. Raskin wrote to IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig.

WATCH:

Kirsten Gillibrand: “The NRA is the worst organization in this country. They care more about their profits than the American people, they care more about selling guns to someone on the terror watch list or w/grave mental illness or who has a violent criminal background”

Here’s the problem…

-NRA is a non-profit & does *not* sell guns

-People opposed banning people who were on the terror watch list from buying guns because it would strip people of their rights without due process

-Violent criminals & grave mentally ill people are already banned from owning guns

More Gillibrand:

Democratic presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand: “I will make sure we ban the bump stocks…the assault rifles, the military-style weapons”

-Bump stocks are already banned

-Assault rifles/military style weapons were effectively banned in 1987

Chris Wallace calls out Kirsten Gillibrand over her gun-control plans, noting none of them would have stopped the Virginia Beach tragedy: “Is there anything you could have done that would have stopped this terrible incident?”

Gillibrand: “Yeah, stop being beholden to the NRA”

Kirsten Gillibrand: “Remember, after the shooting in Las Vegas [Trump] said, ‘we’re going to ban the bump stocks.’ Did he ban the bump stocks? No! Because the NRA came crashing down”

Fact: Trump *did* ban bump stocks after the Las Vegas shooting

Kirsten Gillibrand: “The NRA is lying to the American people, it is not about the Second Amendment. … [The NRA] wants to make sure an abuser who has a restraining order against him can buy a weapon”

Yovanovitch Testifies In Impeachment Hearing Of Being ‘Kneecapped;’ Trump Says Everywhere She Worked ‘Turned Bad’

Published

on

Former ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch decided to do a little bit of finger pointing during her testimony during Friday’s impeachment hearings, targeting Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani and discussing her sudden removal from her diplomatic post. President Trump returned fire and stated that every place Yovanovitch worked “turned bad.” Check out the details from Fox News: During her appearance, Yovanovitch, a career diplomat who served both Republican and Democratic presidents, relayed her story of being suddenly recalled by Trump in May, saying she believes Giuliani played a key role in telling people she was not sufficiently supportive of the president. “I do not understand Mr. Giuliani’s motives for attacking me, nor can I offer an opinion on whether he believed the allegations he spread about me,” Yovanovitch said. “If our chief representative is kneecapped, it limits our effectiveness to safeguard the vital national security interests of the United States,” Yovanovitch said. After the hearing started, Trump began attacking her, tweeting, “Everywhere Marie Yovanovitch went turned bad.” He added, “It is a U.S. President’s absolute right to appoint ambassadors.” https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1195356198347956224 As the impeachment hearing kicked off on Friday, the White House released a new transcript of the president’s initial phone call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. The transcript showed the president agreeing to meet with Zelensky — without any sort of preconditions — in the first official phone call between the two world leaders. Devin Nunes, ranking member of the Intelligence Committee read the whole letter during his opening statement. A separate call that happened between Trump and Zelensky is what started the impeachment inquiry, and the GOP is saying this new transcript helps solidify Trump’s argument that he didn’t do anything wrong in his conversation with the Ukrainian president-elect. Yovanovitch’s removal from her post as the ambassador to Ukraine is…

Planned Parenthood Puts On Pole-Dancing Fundraiser For All-Ages, All-Genders; Includes ‘Pleasure Education’

Published

on

Planned Parenthood’s Northwest and Hawaii political action group is putting on an event entitled “Femme Fest” in Olympia, Washington, which is being offered and opened to “all genders and ages,” which will feature “clitoris and pleasure education” workshops and a “Wicked Sexy Pole Dance Showcase.” Here’s more on the event from TheBlaze: “Join Pilates at Play and Planned Parenthood Votes Northwest & Hawaii as we celebrate our sexuality and enjoy an irreverently playful night of fundraising, fitness, sex talk, and exotic pole dance performances,” an announcement for the event reads on Planned Parenthood Action Fund’s website. The fundraiser comes after a recent school board vote in the nearby Battle Ground school district to scrap a comprehensive sex education curriculum that many feared promoted an LGBTQ+ agenda. In fact, the board not only suspended its use of the specific sex education curriculum under fire, known as FLASH, but eliminated the requirements for the district to teach sex education in general, unless required by the state. Presently, Washington law only requires that school districts teach about HIV and AIDS prevention. Planned Parenthood’s event will also have an educational portion comprised of sessions designed to teach attendees about making sex education something that’s mandatory in the state of Washington. Information about how to pleasure the “clitoris” will also be made available. Here’s a glimpse at the whole schedule: 4 – 5 p.m.: Pilates and Barre Class Sampler 5 – 5:30 p.m.: Sexy Floor Work Lesson 5:30 – 6 p.m.: The Art of Feminine Sensual Movement 6 – 6:30 p.m.: Clitoris and Pleasure Education with Planned Parenthood 6:30 – 7 p.m.: Sex Ed in Washington State Informational with Planned Parenthood Votes Northwest and Hawaii 7- 9 p.m. Wicked Sexy Pole Dance Showcase presented by Pole at Play LifeSiteNews reported that this isn’t the first…
