Some Presidential Primary Tidbits

By Jeff Simpson 

After coming back from vacation, time to close out some tabs that have been open regarding the presidential primary.

1.  Hillary is on record saying she will compromise with the GOP on abortion.  That makes me fear for my daughter as she grows up in this crazy world of rich white men trying to legislate a woman's life.  I do not believe that any other Democratic politician could politically survive saying this,

Again, I am where I have been, which is that if there's a way to structure some kind of constitutional restriction that take into account the life of the mother and her health, then I'm open to that. But I have yet to see the Republicans willing to actually do that, and that would be an area, where if they included health, you could see constitutional action.
2.  For all of Hillary's tough on gun stances, she helped give Remington Corp a hundred million dollar contract while Secretary of State.  

Hillary Clinton presents herself as a tough advocate for gun control. But the State Department she led for four years helped approve more than $100 million in weapons sales for a handful of companies — including the manufacturer of the AR-15 semi-automatic that Adam Lanza used to kill 20 children in Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012.
The sales to foreign nations, noted in Defense Department documents, include $4.2 million in receipts from the Remington Arms Co., which was sued by families of the Sandy Hook victims. They argued that the company was culpable because it marketed military-grade weapons to civilians.
During the 2016 campaign, Clinton has accepted contributions from financial firms that own sizable stakes in the gun industry while criticizing rival Sen. Bernie Sanders as soft on gun safety. She has cited his opposition to laws that could hold gun manufacturers liable for mass shootings, explicitly invoking the Sandy Hook massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, to make her case. 

3.  By the way, Ms. Clinton has not always been tough on guns, just 8 years ago ---

4.   Its not just Hillary, lets look at Wisconsin Primary winner Ted Cruz: 

Ted Cruz seriously sent out a fundraising email telling his supporters about the massive sacrifice he is making to run for President.

Senator Warren went off, on this and made Ted Cruz look like the fool he truly is.  

Are you kidding me, @TedCruz? We’re supposed to pity you because trying to be the leader of the free world is hard?! 2 words: Boo hoo.

It gets better, check out the link! 

5.  Quick observation - with Ted Cruz winning WI, thanks to the talk radio and elected official collaboration and watching Scott Walker spend $7 million dollars in 71 days to end up with 0.0% support.   That shows our own brand of Wisconsinite right wingers are not mainstream throughout the rest of the country.  They are amateurs who run our state but have no ability to carry their extremist views to the rest of the country.

  1. Get with the program! After the disastrous regime of George W Bush, the banksters and military-industrial complex need a new tool to loot the treasury and continue endless wars.

    They need a fresh face to privatize social security. They need someone that will stand-down while the insurance bail-out act that had nothing to do with providing health care falters and then becomes unworkable.

    Meet the new boss, same as the old and part of the stealth republican cabal that hid behind the democratic party under the "Clinton" brand.

    Remember, the media, which Bill Clinton gave more freebies to than any politician in American history, is now intertwined with the military-industrial complex (it is actually now a military-industrial-media complex).

    Of course the banksters profit from this too and, please remember, President Ike actually intended to warn us about the CONGRESSIONAL military-industrial complex.

    So now we are being sold the scam that it is time for a woman president that happens to be best friends with the Bush family and brags about being a soul-mate of Henry Kissinger!

    The fascist take-over of our democracy is now complete and the only role us "little people" play is voting for the congressional-military-industrial-media complex candidate put forward by the banksters.
