Do you need to start your own thread?


No, you do. Call it: "Powerful people want the NRA gone." You won't need any facts whatsoever, and you'll get about two hundred flags and a thousand stars.

What does that have to do with reality?

Is it true that NRA has to walk very carefully with in the law because powerful people that scrutinize the NRA want them gone? Is that a false statement?

Yes, that is absolutely a false statement. Politicians must tread carefully or the NRA will crush them. You seem to be completely unfamiliar with the reality of politics in America.

False narrative by you. Don't confused the power of the large numbers of pro second amendment citizen voters with the NRA.

Sorry, but anti gun advocates watch and scrutinize every step the NRA makes. A base of a large group of politicians who would love to make happy by bringing down the NRA. Is that a false statement?

Politicians afraid of the NRA? Is it false to say a large group of politicians get the same low ratings by the NRA based on their second amendment stance year after year? And do those politicians ever do anything to increase their stance with the NRA?

They don't lobby, they make campaign contributions, endorse candidates, and run negative ads. Nice try, and thank you for bumping the thread. More people need to be exposed to the possibility that Russia has been cultivating the NRA tom exploit fractures in American society.

No, because their constituents are generally from urban areas, which means they favor gun control. Going against the NRA in rural areas would be political suicide.

I say your last post is a half truth. But the claim they don’t lobby is a falsehood.

I did answer. Which do you find harder to believe: that Russia would funnel money to the NRA, or that the NRA would accept it?

ETA: It depends on who the politicians represent. I explained that in my last post. Do you bother to read what others write?

The lobbying isn't what politicians are afraid of.

I love how the right are always telling others that Russia has no influence on American politics but are constantly using RT.com as a source to spread propaganda. LOL




RT is the first Russian 24/7 English-language news channel which brings the Russian view on global news.

So your comment



They don't lobby, they make campaign contribution



Is what?

How is this thread based on a story a Russian funeral money to Trump true?

In fact, can you state what the conclusion of the leaked investigation was?

Funeral money? Вы имеете в виду «утекают», а не «похороны», товарищ. Why are you asking me what the "investigation" concluded when I have explained several times why I doubt there is an investigation?

Among other things. Some money may even go to "foundations" in Connecticut, if you catch my drift.

So am I. Right now the media are making their money selling advertising for patent medicine, automobiles, and politicians. If Trump really wants to screw the media, he should make political ads pro bono-- mandatory public service on the part of the media.
