I hear the government say that the “gun nuts are paranoid”.

We were told that the investigations into the subversives working on behalf of the Communist Soviet Union was a Red Scare and “hysteria”.

So why is the government “right to be scared of gun owners” by not card carrying Communists?

Funny how that “paranoia” card works among liberals/progressives/socialists/statists/Communists.

Feinstein & husband's vast wealth comes from Red China and "depends upon [them] serving Red China’s interest."

Thefts of U.S. technology boost China’s weaponry

Here:

China’s government also uses influence operations designed to advance pro-Chinese policies in the United States and to prevent the U.S. government from taking tough action or adopting policies against Beijing’s interests, FBI officials said.

Rudy Guerin, a senior FBI counterintelligence official in charge of China affairs, said the Chinese aggressively exploit their connections to U.S. corporations doing business in China.

“They go straight to the companies themselves,” he said.

Many U.S. firms doing business in China, including such giants as Coca-Cola, Boeing and General Motors, use their lobbyists on behalf of Beijing.

“We see the Chinese going to these companies to ask them to lobby on their behalf on certain issues,” Mr. Guerin said, “whether it’s most-favored-nation trade status, [World Health Organization], Falun Gong or other matters.”

The Chinese government also appeals directly to members of Congress and congressional staff.

U.S. officials revealed that China’s embassy in Washington has expanded a special section in charge of running influence operations, primarily targeting Congress.

The operation, which includes 26 political officers, is led by Su Ge, a Chinese government official . . . .

My emphasis. Feinstein and hubby didn't mind the Chi-Coms coming after them (waving stacks of money). I seems to me.

So Sen Feinstein, are you suggesting that money to progressive causes only is acceptable? Are you coming after us now?

Not us... her, and her friends, the politicians. That’s who she means by “you”. She’s just saying that when they try to pass gun control, the NRA comes after them.

Now, the real doublespeak is leaving out where the NRA is raising the money to come after them from. She neglects to mention that they raise most of it from We The People, and not big corporations or unions. The NRA is just a proxy for the sovereign citizens of the United States to exercise their lawful political rights, and that is what the commie skank really wants to demonize.

“Funny how that “paranoia” card works among liberals/progressives/socialists/statists/Communists.”

It’s one of the constants of their political tactics, they always need to scapegoat and demonize the opposition. They must do that, because if anyone honestly describes the Marxists’ goals, the Marxists would be demonized without the need for any exaggeration or dishonesty. So, they absolutely must immunize against that by demonizing anyone who might oppose them first.

Feinstein, like BHO, is using one of the basic Marxist techniques in an attempt to achieve her goals.

Here’s a good synopsis of them written by H.R. “Bill” Richardson, founder of Gun Owners of America:

To understand what Obama is doing on the gun issue and other programs the administration is advocating, one must understand the Hegelian dialectic, the principle of “advancing to goals through retreat.”

It works as follows: Demand everything, push ahead and persist! Then when the opposition becomes formidable, continue to advance until it becomes obvious that the entire goal is in jeopardy, then suddenly back away, giving the appearance of being reasonable and open to “compromise.” Then, continue to be tough while “compromising,” until you get as much as you can.

Obama’s opposition, the moderate Republicans, hate being controversial, and the weakest members of the opposition are the first willing to cave in — and usually do. Lenin described this technique as driving a nail with a hammer, the backward stroke away from the nail is as important as the downward stroke in achieving the goal.

The second technique is to say anything or use anyone to achieve your goal. Truth to a socialist atheist is say or do whatever’s necessary to accomplish their goal. There is no such thing as God, or right or wrong. To an atheist, we’re nothing more than graduate animals, mere accidents of nature. Truth is a relative term. “Truth” then, is working for total governmental control, and it’s obvious to the Left that the “end justifies the means.”

One can climb the highest mountain if you take two steps up and one step back. Look how far the Left has climbed using Marxian techniques.

The way one fights the Obama’s in the world is to, politely, stay in their face, not giving an inch while organizing the public into joining the fight. Then we work to inform people of the techniques the Left is using and expose the moral bankruptcy of their beliefs. We’re in the fight of our life for the future of America. Remember Winston Churchill’s famous comment. Never, never give in!

http://directorblue.blogspot.com/2013/01/understanding-obama-richardson.html

Demorats like Fleestein take two steps forward on gun control, immigration etc.. and them RINO’s compromise making the demorats take only one step back. At the end of the day the demorats have incrementally moved towards their goal. Do this over years/deacdes and eventually the demorats achieve their goal. They’ve been doing it for 40+ years.

Sounds like projection. She needs to get a dictionary and look up the meaning of venal:

Adjective
Showing or motivated by susceptibility to bribery: “venal politicians”.

Synonyms
corrupt - corruptible - bribable - mercenary

Venal, that would more or describe the entire Democratic party, won’t it.

The adjective venal means "open to bribery or marked by corrupt dealings. ... pressure of confiscatory taxation--all these things make her more and more venal."

Making herself and her family multi-millionaires while singlehandedly attempting to destroy the lynchpin of the U.S. Bill of Rights?

Playing victim?
