Hillary Clinton Smears Sanders on Gun Control After Serving as Arms Dealer to Authoritarian Regimes

12 January 2016

ENOUGH! Bernie Sanders has a sound and credible policy on addressing the gun control issue. Hillary Clinton, however, rings as phony as a three dollar bill when you tout your concern over violence after serving as a lead liaison as Secretary of State to sell arms to authoritarian regimes (who gave MILLIONS to the Clinton Foundation).

Saudi Arabia being TOPS on that list, a nation NOW bombing Doctors without Borders hospitals. Sane Progressive eviscerates Clinton on the hypocrisy.

Election 2016

New Poll Shows Sanders Pulling Nearly Even With Clinton Nationally

The 2 percent difference marks a huge rise in Sanders‘ popularity.

By Robin Scher / AlterNet

February 5, 2016

As Bernie Sanders continues to dominate New Hampshire numbers, Quinnipiac University released its first post-Iowa Caucus poll Friday morning, showing a drastic reduction in Hillary Clinton’s national lead over Sanders, down to just two percent. The poll surveyed 1,125 registered voters, 42 percent of whom pledged their support for Sanders compared with Clinton‘s 44 percent—the highest level of national support he’s received to date.

The fact that Sanders has pulled nearly even with Clinton nationally in this poll marks a steep climb. Quinnipiac’s previous poll released mid-December showed Clinton leading Sanders by 31 points.

Among the Republican field, the Quinnipiac poll showed Trump still holding his national lead with 31 percent, followed by Cruz’s 22 percent. Ben Carson managed to just scrape ahead of “No Candidate”, fetching himself 6 percent of the poll.

    The gloves came off in the US Democratic Party presidential nomination contest on Thursday night, when Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton went head to head.

    The two prospective candidates, who came neck and neck in the Iowa caucus this week, had their first face-to-face debate in the New Hampshire town of Durham before that state’s primary next Tuesday.

    With a CNN poll showing support for leftwinger Mr Sanders at 61 per cent to 30 per cent for establishment favourite Ms Clinton, the former secretary of state sought to counter the Vermont senator’s criticism that she is beholden to Wall Street donors.

    “It’s time to end the very artful smear that you and your campaign have been carrying out,” she said.

    Mr Sanders said he was proud to be the only candidate not funded by powerful lobby groups. “I represent, I hope, ordinary Americans.”

    He said Ms Clinton should “not only talk the talk but walk the walk” after she claimed she would be tough on finance-sector bosses.

    Mr Sanders said that when a “kid gets caught with marijuana, that kid has a police record.” But when “a Wall Street executive destroys the economy,” he has none.

    “That is what power is about, that is what corruption is about,” he said.

    Asked if she would release transcripts of her paid speeches to Wall Street interests and others, Ms Clinton was noncommittal, saying: “I’ll look into it.”

    She had struggled the day before to explain why she had accepted $675,000 (£465,000) from Goldman Sachs for delivering three speeches.
