After Donald Trump essentially targets her for assassination the NRA launches an ad calling Hillary Clinton a hypocrite for having security. Update!

Courtesy of Politico: 

Just hours after Donald Trump sparked yet another controversy with remarks that seemed, to some, to encourage violence against Hillary Clinton, the NRA went public with its biggest gift yet to the Republican nominee - a $3 million ad buy attacking Clinton as a hypocrite. 

The spot – which calls Clinton “out of touch” for living under Secret Service protection while promoting gun restrictions – is the biggest single ad buy for Trump this cycle and it brings the NRA’s total spending this cycle to around $6 million. 

Yeah gee why would a woman who has been in the Right Wing crosshairs for almost her entire adult life feel the need to surround herself with armed security?

I mean it's not as if a candidate representing one of the two largest political organizations was suggesting that she be shot or anything.

Oh wait......

You know not only do I think that Hillary Clinton probably needs MORE security protecting her, I think they ought to bill Doanld Trump directly for the added expenses of increasing it.

Update: Politifact weighs in.

Spoiler alert: It's bullshit. 


  1. The SS is going to be bankrupt by the end of the year, from providing unnecessary protection for Bernie at the price of $38k per day Cuz he wouldnt concede to extra security for Hillary Cuz of Donald's calling for her assassination.

      Donald Trump’s threat against Clinton has parallels to Sarah Palin’s 2010 PAC ad blunder that ended with Gabby Giffords’ shooting

    4. Ooh did I hit a nerve there 4:33?

    5. I'm surprised, SPLASH. It was in the news when Bernie's SS detail ended.

    6. Deni I know Bernie's protection ended a long time ago. I'm referring to the time between the end of primaries when Hillary had it sewn up and Bernie finally conceding.

    7. Anonymous6:16 PM


      Well you must admit it was a rather ignorant comment considering the annual budget for all US Secret Service activities is $2.2 Billion for Fiscal Year 2016.

      Bernie's additional month of protection is so infinitesimal of a fraction of the total SS budget that it is preceded by 4 zeros.

      Any mention of his protection bankrupting the organization is but an exercise in hyperbole, which really we have plenty of in the comment section of this blog.

      I realize that you feel the need to endlessly bash Bernie even if you have to fabricate lies in order to do it, so by all means, keep bashing, but next time perhaps try to do some research and provide us with facts rather than lies.

    His following is as insane and cunningly dim witted as he is.

    He says what I have seen written in far right wing blogs. He is only parroting the far right wing nuts. They hate Hillary and anything she does. They see Obama and Hillary Clinton’s flaws, but love his crude brash and insulting taunts. Because that is who THEY are if they had the platform.. The worse he is the more they love him. And from what I see, they seem to love him and his slime ball tactics. The more outrageous he is the louder they roar. Bring out the Lions and gladiators. It’s a bizarre mentality.

    They love it and how he gets away with it.” Its a joke folks. don’t you have a sense of humor?” is how he puts it.

    On the other side I read he has a 60,000 hair weave and hair implants from a business that is based in his own offices area in the Trump Tower.

    The crazy color changes in his hair and skin from day to day baffle me.

    I’ve read some pretty gross allegations about Trump, which are possibly true, but won’t repeat them as they are very raunchy.

    There are rumors that when he inflicts as much damage as he can, he will step aside because his tax returns can show things, even he can’t get away with.

    He is a con man, a grifter, a sleeze, a skunk, a fraud, a cunning and slimey opportunist and nothing sticks for his following.

    Little by little the decent Republicans have reached their Rubicon and slowly, oh, so slowly. they are backing away, though some braver than other are speaking out that he is unacceptable.

    Some will vote Libertarian rather than for Hillary, but some are backing HRC because they know she is basically a decent human being, unlike Trump.

    Everyone realizes he has Russian business interests, and is in Putins pocket. Putin after all can get away with murdering someone in London with poison.

    He is a fools gold plated would be dictator.

    Scary, isn’t it?

    Thank you for caring about our country and the world which would be a worse place if Trump gets in.

    I won’t expose myself to hate posts in the U.S… Trumps People attack viciously if you don’t agree with their views

    Instead of disagreeing with your views, they attack the poster.

    It is insanity. They hate Hillary.

    I despise Trump.

    The Republicans tried to sink Obama. Instead, the party imploded

    It may seem too early to call, but we already have a winner in the 2016 election.

    He’s someone the pundits wrote off long ago. An improbable outsider who rode an insurgent wave to snatch the nomination from the establishment. An unconventional politician whose raucous rallies underscored his appeal to voters far outside his party base.

    His name is Barack Obama. And he can thank the freak show that is Donald Trump’s Republican party for restoring his stature as a unifying, national leader with a moderated and mature approach to a complex and unstable world.

    Obama's administration, after a long review, has decided to keep marijuana a schedule 1 drug because they find no medicinal use for it.

    Now I'm not a pot smoker, but even I understand that there is a medicinal use for it for cancer patients, glaucoma patients, etc. I really don't have a view for recreational use except that marijuana is certainly not as bad as heroine or cocaine.

    At least they are now opening marijuana up for research, which is the camel's nose. They also won't interfere with state laws about it so there is that.

    I imagine Bill Maher is very disappointed. He's off for a month so we won't hear anything about it. But he did say that he wouldn't push marijuana legalization if that would lose Hillary any votes.

    Good for him.

    May all of Hillary's supporters be as generous, putting aside their little pet peeves, in favor of uniting to defeat Donald Trump.

    1. Anonymous4:31 AM

      Maher is a recreational user.
      I'm a Lyme disease patient. I have developed MS symptoms, along with a laundry list of others, and I for one want cannabis research to hurry up! This disease has shortened my life & greatly reduced the quality of it. Prior, I was a healthy, vegetarian, yoga-lover, obsessed hiker, gonzo gardener, lite social drinker who didn't do drugs and was never more than 20 pounds over weight in my whole life(I come from a family of large ladies and decided I wasn't going to be an unhealthy fat person from an early age). I wasn't exactly a dream patient prior to my tick-bite, as I was very healthy and didn't need more than the annual check-up for DECADES. Patients like me who can't tolerate the typical prescription meds for quality of life depleting symptoms want and need this plant to be studied NOW!
      We need the pain reducing, muscle-spasm reducing, depression reducing, and inflammation reducing qualities that are found in this plant. Develop that out, while reducing the intoxicating effects, and you've got a med I can take and be a productive person again. The intoxicating form I have (illegal) access to Does indeed help with nausea, lack of appetite(I"m 15 pounds underweight now), and sleeping issues(can't sleep more than 4 hours at a time). It helps with the depression on most days. Unfortunately, it increases my mental fog. But I'm homebound anyway and unable to drive. We called that 'shut-in' when i was a kid.
      It's a little pet peeve for maher, but for the large and growing population of patients like me with chronic, serious illnesses, it's potentially life-altering and improving. Some people may dream of the day they retire, but I dream of the day I could potentially return to the land of the living and be useful again. This plant could help with that goal, in the right combination. I have already tried the legal forms of cannabis available for prescription in my stae, and got no positive benefits at all. I was so disappointed. And that liquid med costed us over $800/ month. The illegal plant form costed us less than $150/mo supply. I do not like feeling uneasy because of the illegality of this plant that hasn't killed anyone. I just want to get well, or at least better. I hate to see my husband hide his face from me because he doesn't want me to knw he's been crying. He's at a loss too.

      @4:31, I'm so sorry to hear about your medical problems. I think your voice is an important one to be heard. I wish the best for you on the difficult road you are on.

      I had an illness some 10 years ago that left me crippled with nausea/flu like symptoms with joint pain throughout my body. If it had not been for marijuana I really don't know how I would have made it through the 5+ years it went on. I was fortunate that I lived in WA state that had medical MJ.

      I will be writing to President Obama, Hillary and my reps in congress about this issue as I have in the past. This is a disappointing decision.

      That's funny in April 2012 Sarah is telling the agent (detail Alaska and with Palin) "you're fired!". Sarah and Todd had their buddies do the manly thing as friends of the Palins. Sarah would never flirt, I suppose. a serial John would have no clue about Todd's business?

      "The last public event at which Gov. Sarah Palin was accompanied by Secret Service agents during the 2008 campaign was on the day after the election, when she arrived home in Alaska on the McCain-Palin campaign plane. As the governor greeted supporters on the tarmac outside a charter jet hangar, agents formed the usual protective wall around the former vice-presidential candidate.

      But that was not, apparently, the last the Palins saw of at least some of the agents.

      “They were dying to know, ‘Well, what is that all about up there in Alaska?’” Ms. Palin said at the end of a brief interview in her office on Friday. “Well, they escorted us up to Alaska, so Todd took them out on machines. That was a blast.”"

    Mr. Trump who is the founder of Trump University and the Trump Institute? How much money did you make from these scams?

    As with Trump University, the Trump Institute promised falsely that its teachers would be handpicked by Mr. Trump. Mr. Trump did little, interviews show, besides appear in an infomercial – one that promised customers access to his vast accumulated knowledge. “I put all of my concepts that have worked so well for me, new and old, into our seminar,” he said in the 2005 video, adding, “I’m teaching what I’ve learned.”

    Reality fell far short. In fact, the institute was run by a couple who had run afoul of regulators in dozens of states and been dogged by accusations of deceptive business practices and fraud for decades. Similar complaints soon emerged about the Trump Institute.

    Yet there was an even more fundamental deceit to the business, unreported until now: Extensive portions of the materials that students received after forking over their seminar fees, supposedly containing Mr. Trump’s special wisdom, had been plagiarized from an obscure real estate manual published a decade earlier.

    And now the “Trump Institute” is facing allegations of being yet another fraudulent operation, complete with bogus claims, shady characters, and “the theft of intellectual property at the venture’s heart.”

    The Times’ report added:
    The institute was another example of the Trump brand’s being accused of luring vulnerable customers with false promises of profit and success. Others, besides Trump University, include multilevel marketing ventures that sold vitamins and telecommunications services, and a vanity publisher that faced hundreds of consumer complaints.

    Mr. Trump’s infomercial performance suggested he was closely overseeing the Trump Institute. “People are loving it,” he said in the program, titled “The Donald Trump Way to Wealth” and staged like a talk show in front of a wildly enthusiastic audience. “People are really doing well with it, and they’re loving it.” His name, picture and aphorisms like “I am the American Dream, supersized version” were all over the course materials.

    Yet while he owned 93 percent of Trump University, the Trump Institute was owned and operated by Irene and Mike Milin, a couple who had been marketing get-rich-quick courses since the 1980s.

    This whole thing is total madness.

    Hillary Clinton preemptively accepts debate schedule. So Donald Trump suggests that perhaps she should be assassinated.

    Hillary may be safe from the Bongino types in the Secret Service. He blames President Obama for the “toxic” administration and “using government as a weapon exclusively to intimidate enemies.”

    That is a nasty thing to say, where are his facts and back up for what he claims? The President is a bully, but Bongino is not that specific. He was selling his 'tell all' book. He had nothing to tell. So he writes about his inferiority complex and how he was not professional when a Secret Service agent.

    "Dan Bongino, the Secret Service agent who turned on President Obama and is running for Congress, says he believes the “toxic” administration is “using government as a weapon exclusively to intimidate enemies.”

    “That wasn’t necessarily the case with the Clintons, and I was pretty much enmeshed in Hillary’s Senate campaign. Although I disagreed with a lot of their political positions . . . I can’t tell you that they thought government was a weapon exclusively to intimidate their enemies. But this administration constantly seems to use government [as a weapon] because they are inexperienced with it — it’s like giving a kid a Bowie knife and saying, ‘Have fun.’

    They gave this administration which has no experience the reins of government and they have just gone wild.”

    Bongino said he grew tired of listening to Obama talk. “Protecting President Clinton, I never found his speeches to be toxic, like if you disagreed you were his mortal enemy. With Obama, you are not just his political enemy, you are his real enemy if you disagreed. I couldn’t listen to it any more.”

    Bongino seems to take it personal that Obama made him to be his mortal enemy. Strange way to talk and what a stupid thing to write or say. No wonder he is a disgrace to many in the Secret Service.

They are trying to dissect just what he meant when he sent his subliminal message to his minions. We don't have to sit around for an hour trying to see what he meant. We know. He knows that everything that he sez that's a shocker will give his ugly mug time on the tv. The media has played right into his little hands. It's sickening. I hope Hillary stays on message and just plugs along like she's been doing for thirty years. She doesn't need the drama that they are trying to send her way. We don't need it either.
