  1. The NRA and Russia have bought the Republican party. Power and greed before country. 🤡🎪🇷🇺

    • Unfortunately, too many of the people who fund them and are being defrauded by them will never hear this story because of the media bubble they live in.

    • ​@Andrew_Owens Speaking of media bubbles… In the words of the late, great Madge; “You’re soaking in it.” But corporate advertising is famous for misleading folks to make a profit and like Palmolive dish soap, Rachel Maddow might be a popular brand, but isn’t really so harmless.

      “[Maddow] is not in the business of news. She’s in the business of entertainment and she spins conspiracy theories for the left the way Sean Hannity spins conspiracy theories for the right.” – Chris Hedges

      The real opposition, the battle where the kind of world we live in is ultimately determined is not so much between the left and the right as it is between a very tiny but wealthy (and greedy) elite at the top and the rest of us. The two parties are BOTH largely owned by the .1% so BOTH represent the ECONOMIC best interests of the tiny percentage of elites at our expense. Don’t fall for their propaganda and distractions. For serious news, look to independent sources who still have their integrity. At least seek them and hear them out and then decide for yourself.

      If you have followed Maddow on Russia/Mueller matters, you owe it to yourself to check out at least one interview or report of Aaron Mate. You can find them right here on YouTube. He publishes on the channel The Grayzone and has also been featured for interviews on other channels.

      Don’t miss our brilliant intellectual Noam Chomsky on Russiagate:

    • You are right

    • @JENTHINKSO Don’t think I get all my news from Maddow- I don’t. I think The Economist Magazine is excellent, Al Jazeera is excellent and The Wall Street Journal, though owned by Ruppert Murdoch is still quite good. Any one of those provides more news in five minutes than the whole bunch of main stream corporate media does in a year. So I get your point.

    • @Andrew_Owens It is always wise to get your news from different legitimate sources . Including some news sites that are supported by common people, not corporations that have been bought the powerful elite.

    Just like the churches… White spoiled rich people living on the poorer white people…. LMAO…. They are truly nasty people… And they are so arogant….this is capitalism at its best……

  3. NRA been feeding off paranoia forever (lol remember the Obama gonna take your guns nonsense?). Hopefully, people are now becoming more educated about what the NRA does and how it “spends” donor $$$.

  4. Ban the NRA from donating to politics in any way. Once this is done then you can have decent gun laws. The constitution says you can have guns (muskets at the time) but it does not say what type of guns so its not unconstitutional to remove particular weapons from the system. No usa citizen built militia is going to do anything against a modern army. A shotgun is the only weapon you need for home protection. Bolt action is all you need for hunting & contractors can get special exemptions for AR15 etc rifles for invasive species contracts (just like here in Australia). Yes we in Australia have all the same weapons you do but things like semi auto rifles are strictly regulated & only special contractors get them for work.

    • your argument may seem to be sound BUT if you read the amendment it says ” shall not be infringed”  so one could argue that ANY attempt to control weapons in private hands is un constitutional.  In deed one could argue that private citizens have the RIGHT to hold even atomics. Personally I do not own any firearms nor am I a member of the NRA but stupid arguments like yours need to be put into place. If the founding fathers wanted to restrict the types of guns held in private hands they could have said so. They did not  instead they said that government ” shall not infringe” consider what that ACTUALLY means.

      We the People must join the ongoing work to eliminate the poison intrusion of Big $ upon our elections/govt. Overturning Citizens United, Campaign and Election Reform are our first imperatives to clean up and restore our govt. of, for and by the People. Move to Amend, Trust Vote and American Promise are just a few of the quality groups of everyday people we can check out/join with. Make no mistake, we must participate and ask our friends and families to do the same!

      @Fred Smith Bringing in the founding fathers is such a stupid argument. The founding fathers were not clear voyants, they could not and did not have any idea about the type of weapons that would be developed in the future. They had not the faintest idea that the country would grow up to 350 million plus people, neither how metropools would look like. Neither that the USA would surpass England, the whole 2nd amendment was drawn up with then ruler England in mind.
      Weird that a lot have been changed from and added to the original constitution, that is why we have a Supreme Court, yet stubborn heads want to make it as if only the 2nd amandment is written in stone and cemented

      @Fred Smith
      Well, then it would be equally unconstitutional to deny weapons to criminals, little kids, psychopaths…

  5. Greed makes you forget the awareness of consequences , and always exchanging public safety over controversial business

    • and super awesome when you can destroy your billion dollar company and then MAKE IT LAW that the US TAXPAYER bails out the millionaires….. 2008 (it will happen again as well, it’s how they create new members to the billionaire club, now growing!)

    The (N)ational (R)ussia (A)ssociation is one of the most unAmerican organizations and has been for decades (in the late 90’s it turned radical, pushing extremist agendas even most of their members don’t want, and turned into advertisers for gun manufacturers).

  7. The SDNY will never stop going after Trump and his roguish crime family until they have answered for their crimes. Their day of reckoning can only be delayed, but it cannot be stopped….and that day is coming.

    • Sorry SDNY is made of stooges who does better drama. American judicial system is meant for the poor and minority. There can be a video of orange jello chocking someone and he’d still walk free.

      @Rob Wright

      Cant say u r wrong.

      Look at uniformed fecal matter Daniel Pantaleo in Staten Island. $95k when he choked Eric Garner to death……$105k currently.

      David J I really hope so

    • I’m not so sure about that, very strange times right now!!!

    • David J — Not quite sure about SDNY anymore. been noticing a trend here…they appear to have gone after anyone that may have or know something embarrassing about Trump. Michael Avenatti, Michael Cohen, Jeffrey Epstein…wonder who’s next.

  8. The NRA has been linked to Terrorism so it has no legal standing to open any cases against Americans. Terrorist and their supporters aren’t recognized by the US Government as citizens.

  9. Many Republicans in Congress will have a lot of explaining to do when the full scope of Trump’s treason is finally revealed. Many of the republicans who defended Trump, and even obstructed the investigation, have benefited, and or profited from Trump’s betrayal of America.

    NRA Not Really Accountable.
    Not Reliable Accountants
    Next Republican Acrimony
    Naughty Republicans Accepted

    I wonder if som of those nut jobs who think they are the good guy with a gun go after the real criminals…. maybe the NRA would then suddenly support more common sense gun laws…. but too late.

  12. but isn’t this also from bribes etc from firearms manufacturers ?

  13. meaning the nra is just the beard for the firearms manufacturers

    A non profit organization my foot. Wayne LaPierre is a shrewd manipulator. He’s the longtime high priest of a quasi-religious shadow government. Finally they’re subpoenaed, leave no stone unturned!!

  15. The NRA thinks it’s a megachurch. Wayne’s downline think he’s crazy but a genius.

    “100s of millions of dollars?” !! People without a lot of money give money to the NRA and they spend it lavishly?

  17. Wouldn’t surprise me if all those expenses are to launder money coming through from Putin.

    Rachel Maddow is one of the most important reporters in America atm. MSNBC, back her up….coz I feel that one day Trump will come for her.

  19. This is what Olly North was screaming at them about, when he was ousted. He TOLD America, the NRA are embezzling your money, America. Do you even CARE? 🤣

  20. Trump supporters are too stupid and close minded that they don’t care
