Nothing says “authenticity” like Elizabeth Warren
Elizabeth Warren Wiki is about to gain another entry.
Elizabeth Warren recently became the first U.S. senator to take the “No NRA Money” pledge, which is about the easiest pledge a liberal politician has ever made, given that vast sums the National Rife Association has not donated to her previously.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren has vowed to do something about mass shootings by refusing to accept campaign donations from the National Rifle Association, even though she’s never received any money from the organization in the past.
She recently became the first U.S. senator to take the “No NRA Money” pledge, joining more than 200 other candidates and officeholders, most of them other Democrats also known for their opposition to the gun-rights advocacy group.
They include House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Rep. Ted Lieu of California, and Rep. Jan Schakowsky of Illinois.
“I’m running for re-election to the U.S. Senate here in Massachusetts, and I pledge not to take a single penny from the National Rifle Association,” Ms. Warren said…
Interestingly, the NRA rates Warren at 7% in terms of protection of gun ownership rights. So, I suspect this may be one truth she has actually uttered.
Meanwhile, the NRA has issued a formal response:
— NRA (@NRA) May 25, 2018
As an aside, I would like to mention that in the book I recently reviewed, The Great Revolt, the authors noted that the NRA’s ad focused on female gun owners was essential in getting those women to vote for Donald Trump in 2016 and not Hillary Clinton. The NRA clearly demonstrates that it spends its money smartly, and I believe that this effectiveness in 2016 is why the attacks on the group have escalated.
This pledge is also the result of 3 factors that are currently impacting the 2018 election cycle:
- RussiaGate has transformed into SpyGate.
- The economy is robust, and Americans are optimistic.
- Trump’s innovate foreign policy moves look like they are more effective than those of “experts”.
As of right now, the Republicans are leading the generic ballot. Blue wave anyone?
The Democrats are struggling to find a message other than “impeach Trump”. This move smells of desperation so sulfurous that it is competing with Hawaii’s Kilauea for irritation and stench.
