NRA launches pro-Trump ad featuring Benghazi survivor

The political arm of the National Rifle Association released a new ad Wednesday focusing on Hillary Clinton and features a survivor of the Benghazi attack criticizing the former secretary of state. The ad stars Mark Geist, a Marine Corps veteran who provided security services in Benghazi, discussing the 2012 attacks. "Hillary as president? No thanks," Geist says………

………….. Jennifer Baker, Director of Public Affairs for the NRA's lobbying arm, confirmed to CNN that the ad is backed by a $2 million buy and will air in battleground states such as Colorado, Florida, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, in addition to the second congressional district of Maine, which splits its electoral votes. It is the largest pro-Trump ad buy from an outside group during the campaign so far. ………


NRA should be more concerned about their non-profit status because placing political ads violates IRS code……….
IRS is very strict about violations so the NRA may be subject to losing their non-profit status………

That's not important. Many liberals don't have a problem with huge money going to political candidates, they have a problem when the money goes to republicans......

They didn't have any problem with Obama receiving more corporate money than McCain. They don't have a problem with the Clintons' pay to play clearinghouse. They don't have a problem with tax dollars funding non-stop pro democrat propaganda at NPR, and news bias at taxpayer funded PBS. They don't have a problem with the hundreds of thousands of teachers and professors who are paid by the taxpayers, but many of them clearly indoctrinate OUR kids into left wing, pro democrat liberals. They don't have a problem with hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars going to working age, physically and mentally capable government dependents who don't work much or at all, but certainly vote for their "patrons" to keep the money coming. They don't have a problem with 95% of the media shilling for dems and against republicans........

BUT........The NRA and Fox News are the real problem! None of those things above though! It's just so laughable. Obviously they don't really want a fair system, they want to make sure the dems have such an unfair advantage in every possible way.....

Thank you for the information............

BTW

Is it a sin to not know something?

Is it necessary to sound nasty in reply?

If I was responsible for providing security services in Benghazi, I doubt I would want to be in the public eye on that subject.
