Stacey Abrams Makes Misleading Claim About Military Style Rifles

Abrams description of the popular rifle model will have Second Amendment supporters CRINGING!

The State of Georgia is locked in one of its wildest gubernatorial races in modern history, as democrat Stacey Abrams looks to make history against Secretary of State Brian Kemp.

The race for the governorship has been a turbulent one for both candidates.  Abrams, if elected, would be the first ever female African American governor in our nation’s history, and has had the likes of Oprah and Will Ferrell spending time in the deep south to assist with her campaigning.

Kemp, on the other hand, found controversy by releasing a number of campaign advertisements that seem to play down to the far, far right of the Georgia GOP base, even going so far as to suggest that he would round up illegal immigrants in his personal vehicle.

To say that it’s been a strange contest would be understating it immensely.

Now, Abrams has let fly her latest attack on the Second Amendment – something that could come back to haunt her in Georgia.

She was a guest on The View, and host Meghan McCain noted, “You have been endorsed by Everytown, which is an anti-gun organization–Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun group as well. You say you’re proud of your F rating from the NRA. Michael Bloomberg and others like him support taking the AR-15–which is the most popular rifle in America–away from people. Do you, like Everytown, support banning the AR-15?”

Abrams responded by quickly claiming she is not “anti-gun,” then laying out many of the gun controls she wants to put in place: “I believe in a background check. I believe in a three-day waiting period. I believe that those who commit domestic violence and stalking should not have access to weapons.”

She then described AR-15s as “weapons of mass destruction” and made clear her position that they should be banned from civilian ownership…

Georgia has long been considered an easy win for the republicans in general elections, but the possibility of the Peach State as a battleground locale has emerged in recent years due to the blossoming population of Atlanta, whose population tends to skew heavy toward the democrats.

In rural areas, Abrams’ AR-15 schtick certainly will not fly, but is there enough support within the capital city’s limits to push her over the top?  And, if so, will Georgia succumb to the same fate as New York and California, whose political maneuvers are wholly telegraphed from their most populous and liberal locales?

We will find out on Tuesday.

AOC Tries to Use Meteorological Event to Push Climate Change, Gets Harshly Rebuked by Expert

You live by social media sword, you die by the social media sword.

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez

Freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been one of the most avid social media users in Congress, but that distinction has backfired far more often than it hasn’t for her. AOC, as she has advertised herself, is undoubtedly one of the millennial-ist members of Congress to ever saunter about the Capitol.  Her constant social media PR and far-left ideologies appeal to a wide swath of the American youth, giving the political newbie a gravitational pull that her fellow democrats have not yet experienced. But this also means that every tidbit of AOC’s life will be subject to criticism, since every tidbit of her life is being broadcast. Her latest social media stunt saw the New York House Rep panicking over a tornado warning in Washington DC and attempting to draw a parallel to global warming. Meteorologists were quick to rebuke her. Here is the frantic video: https://youtu.be/zBG-BmMdP70 The Green New Deal advocate then shared a story published by PBS in March questioning if climate change makes tornadoes worse and put emphasis on a quote from the piece that read, “Rather than lie squarely in the Great Plains, America’s tornadoes appear to be sliding into the Midwest and Southeast.” “Tornadoes are challenging to link to climate change links due to their nature (geographically, limited, acute patterns, how they form, etc.),” Ocasio-Cortez told her followers as she reviewed the article. “But we DO know that tornadoes HAVE been changing. They are no longer being limited to the Great Plains, and are shifting to other regions of the country.” Then came the clincher. “The climate crisis is real y’all … guess we’re at casual tornadoes in growing regions of the country,” she later wrote on Instagram. That theory was quickly shot down, however. Meteorologist Ryan Maue, though, argued that she was confusing climate change with “weather” in…

GAME ON: Trump Gives Bill Barr Complete Authority to Declassify Origins of Russia Probe

HERE WE GO…

President Trump dropped a whopper on Thursday night. Soon enough, the entire world will know the origins of “spying” on the 2016 Trump campaign. Also, how the whole Russia conspiracy fiasco became a thing. Trump tweeted out the following… “Today, at the request and recommendation of the Attorney General of the United States, President Donald J. Trump directed the intelligence community to quickly and fully cooperate with the Attorney General’s investigation into surveillance activities…. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1131716322369392646?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1131716322369392646&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fhuge-trump-gives-ag-barr-complete-authority-to-declassify-info-on-russia-probe-origins%2F ….during the 2016 Presidential election. The Attorney General has also been delegated full and complete authority to declassify information pertaining to this investigation, in accordance with the long-established standards for handling classified information…. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1131716323485073409?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1131716323485073409&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fhuge-trump-gives-ag-barr-complete-authority-to-declassify-info-on-russia-probe-origins%2F ….Today’s action will help ensure that all Americans learn the truth about the events that occurred, and the actions that were taken, during the last Presidential election and will restore confidence in our public institutions.” @PressSec https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1131716324751826949?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1131716324751826949&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fhuge-trump-gives-ag-barr-complete-authority-to-declassify-info-on-russia-probe-origins%2F From Fox News: Trump claims his campaign was the victim of “spying,” though the intelligence community has insisted it acted lawfully in following leads in the Russia investigation. The president had told Fox News earlier in May that he would allow declassification “soon.” He elaborated, “I didn’t want to do it originally because I wanted to wait, because I know what they — you know I’ve seen the way they play. They play very dirty.” Last month, Barr ran into a buzz saw of criticism from Democratic lawmakers and media figures for testifying that “spying did occur” against the Trump campaign in 2016. But despite the backlash, Barr appeared to be referring to intelligence collection that already has been widely reported and confirmed. Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani weighed in: The President @realDonaldTrump made a wise decision to let AG Barr on the docunents. I don’t know for sure but I seriously doubt there’s any…
