Washington, DC – -(Ammoland.com)- Hillary Clinton is not known for her sincerity and forthrightness.

In fact, a poll conducted last September by Suffolk University/USA Today demonstrated that more than one in five voters associate some term of deceitfulness with Clinton, including “liar,” “dishonest,” “untrustworthy,” and “fake.” This followed an earlier Quinnipiac University poll that found, “’Liar’ is the first word that comes to mind more than others in an open-ended question when voters think of Clinton.” And that one followed similar findings from CNN/ORC International. Et cetera.

Like Abraham Lincoln said, “you cannot fool all the people all the time.”

But you can’t fault Hillary Clinton for trying her level best to do just that.

Regular observers of Hillary Clinton know for a fact she is no fan of the Second Amendment. We know, for example, she thinks the Supreme Court was “wrong” to declare that it’s an individual right, that self-defense is its “core” purpose, and that it prohibits the government at all levels from banning handguns. We also know that she is open to the idea of a mandatory, nationwide surrender of firearms, along the lines of what Australia did.

So we can at least credit her for being honest about that.

Well, sort of, anyway.

Those statements are now part of the public record, and we’ll gladly remind the public of them every chance we get.

But not everybody follows politics closely … not even everybody who votes.

So Hillary Clinton is counting on Americans to have short memories and limited awareness during the general election this year.

For now, she is willing to pander to her base and try to position herself to the left of primary challenger Bernie Sanders by harping on gun control … at least some of the time. She believes that message will resonate with the much smaller and more ideologically-oriented segment of the population that chooses a candidate in the primary election. But will she be singing the same tune if (and likely when) she faces the general electorate in a bid for the White House?

Not if a recent Associated Press (AP) analysis of her primary political ads is any indication.

As an article in the D.C. Caller put it, “The Hillary Clinton campaign wants to both highlight her staunch support of gun control laws, but also obscure those views in places where it may hurt her at the polls.”

According to the AP, 1 of every 4 of her televised political ads in New Hampshire touts her support for tougher gun control. Meanwhile, in Iowa, only in 1 in 17 ads mention Clinton’s support for stronger gun control and in a less strident way. As University of Iowa Professor Tim Hagle opined to the AP, “It may have to do with the polls and that the hunting tradition is stronger here in Iowa.”

In other words, Hillary is being what is commonly called – in the world of normal human interaction, where people don’t routinely misrepresent themselves to each other wherever it might offer a perceived advantage – “two-faced.”

Remember that when Hillary Clinton is talking to the nation as a whole (and not just her party’s most ideologically-motivated base) about what she supposedly believes and what she supposedly would do as president.

Even if certain primary voters support Hillary’s gun control agenda, America at large does not. That being so, you can count on Clinton to be more muted about her radical designs to disarm the populace when she’s trying to bamboozle her way back to Pennsylvania Avenue. Rest assured, we do not intend to let her pull the wool over America’s eyes on this point.

Hillary wants to take credit for her strong participation in the first Clinton presidency, brags on it in fact. Let us recall some of those actions: Hillarycare, the Democrat’s first attempt at universal health care, finally achieved in Obamacare, and what a fine thing that is turning into. The 1994-2004 Assault Weapon Ban, based mostly on cosmetic features, so ineffective in its goals that even rabid anti gun groups could not argue for its renewal when the sunset provision kicked in. Then of course we have her miserable performance as Secretary of State: Benghazi, private e-mail server, multiple missteps when… Read more »

Don’t forget SANDERS: Bernie Sanders LIMOUSINE LIBERAL RAT — Happy to support really RADICAL CORE and SNCC in New York —- but then RUNS TO VERMONT to be FAR away from BLACKIE ———————————————— From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Bernard “Bernie” Sanders (born September 8, 1941) A Democrat AS OF 2015 (He CHANGES HIS STRIPES FOR PROFIT) Sanders had been the longest-serving independent in U.S. congressional history, though his caucusing with the Democrats entitled him to committee assignments and at times gave Democrats a majority.[3] Sanders has been the ranking minority member on the Senate Budget Committee since January 2015, and… Read more »

The biggest favor she has done for Republicans is talk about her views on gun control/confiscation ! That issue alone insures her defeat ! That’s the reason Republicans slaughtered the socialists in the mid terms !

Is there a correlation between ‘big cankles’ and ‘big lies’?

The interpretation is based on the mind of the perceiver and how they want to view it. If you are anti Hillary you will have an anti view. If you are pro Hillary you will have a Pro View. Obviously, this article if anti Hillary. Jim Horn
