Dianne "gun-ban" Feinstein wants you to know she's not a 6th grader

Yesterday, during a committee hearing in the U.S. Senate on gun control legislation, newly elected Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and long-time Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) engaged in a heated exchange over the constitutionality of her proposed bill, Assault Weapons Ban of 2013, to ban “assault weapons” that include more than 150 rifles, shotguns, and handguns.
By far the most ambitious of and just like the gun-control bills introduced across the United States in the wake of the Sandy Hook massacre, Feinstein’s bill exempts government officials (including Congress, of course), law enforcement and retired law enforcement personnel.
At yesterday’s hearing, Sen. Cruz questioned the constitutionality of new gun laws: “It seems to me that all of us should begin, as our foundational document, with the Constitution. And the Second Amendment in the Bill of Rights provides that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” Cruz went on to expound on the phrase “the right of the people,” its origins and its prolific use by the Founding Fathers in a number of Constitutional provisions, including the First and Fourth Amendments.
To that, Feinstein huffily replied: “I’m not a sixth grader.” Blah. Blah. Blah.

Like another Democrat senator, Chucky Schumer, Feinstein carries a concealed weapon and is also protected by armed police escorts, although she has plenty of moolah to hire her own body guards. One of the 10 wealthiest members of Congress, Feinstein reported a net worth of between $46 million and $108.1 million in 2010, according to financial disclosures.
Feinstein’s investment-banker husband Richard Blum was on the Board of Directors of Current TV and had facilitated the $500 million sale of Al Gore’s failing TV network to Al Jazeera.
The Hollywood Reporter reports that according to a lawsuit filed by John Terenzio, who claims it was his idea to sell to Al Jazeera but he was cut out of the lucrative deal, Gore at first was reluctant to sell to Al Jazeera but was persuaded by Blum. Feinstein’s husband pushed for the sale because “he and other Current investors were concerned about the prospect of losing their shirts in the financially troubled Current.”
As the spouse of a powerful senior U.S. senator, some of Blum’s lucrative business dealings have been questioned for potential conflicts-of-interest. From Wikipedia:

Blum’s wife, Senator Dianne Feinstein, has received scrutiny due to her husband’s government contracts and extensive business dealings with China and her past votes on trade issues with the country. Blum has denied any wrongdoing, however Critics have argued that business contracts with the US government awarded to a company (Perini) controlled by Blum may raise a potential conflict-of-interest issue with the voting and policy activities of his wife. URS Corp, which Blum had a substantial stake in, bought EG&G, a leading provider of technical services and management to the U.S. military, from The Carlyle Group in 2002; EG&G subsequently won a $600m defense contract.

In 2009 it was reported that Blum’s wife Sen. Dianne Feinstein introduced legislation to provide $25 billion in taxpayer money to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp, a government agency that had recently awarded her husband’s real estate firm, CB Richard Ellis, what the Washington Times called “a lucrative contract to sell foreclosed properties at compensation rates higher than the industry norms.”

Hey, Dianne Feinstein.
At age 79, you are most certainly not a sixth-grader. But I doubt there’s even ONE sixth-grader in all of America who’s as hypocritical as you!

  1. If the “people ” in the 1st amend. . 3rd. , 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, and 10th, are us (supposedly ) , why not in the 2nd ? This goes way beyond hypocritical . This waste of D.N.A. is nothing but a Zionist shill .
    Don’t you just love how much $ her and her hubbie at the taxpayers expense ?

     
  2. It truely makes me sick to know how arrogant and elitist Feinstein and her ilk are. We have to vote these people out.

     
    • Voting is rigged. It’s best not to vote or at least spoil your ballot papers. These bozos in power are there because they get the semblance of our approval and complicity in the voting process, even if there is a low turnout.
      No votes at all will mean that the government has no mandate from the people and should be dissolved. Why else do you suppose that various governments want to make voting mandatory.

       
      • minou, While I may agree voting is rigged, to not vote is just wrong on so many levels. In theory no votes would be nice, but it would never happen. Now they only need one.
        I’ve never seen proposals for “Mandatory voting”
        I have seen skippy get 105% Same thing I guess. 😀

         
        • Australia has compulsory voting/turnout at elections else they are fined. and there have been moves to try to get the same thing in America. They’ve been talking about it in the UK too. Governments are worried by low turnouts.
          How is not voting wrong when all the candidates are bought and paid for. Who are we really voting for? The ones with the most money behind them?
          True democracy lies in having an informed and educated citizenry, a truly free press and independent non-career politicians. Politicians need votes to get in and after that they listen to the corporate interests not the people!! In all the years of voting can you really point to a time when the politicians have done something good, or they have repealed bad legislation? They just carry on with the same agenda. The people you vote for are power-hungry and gutless psychopaths whose only wish is to line their own pockets.
          But do have fun putting your mark every five years!!!

           
          • minou, I really can’t argue with what you say. Your right they all suck. But if we stay home then we go from Socialism to Nazism in about a yr.
            This is the key to it all, you said.
            <b."True democracy lies in having an informed and educated citizenry, a truly free press and independent non-career politicians."
            We are trying to inform people. Problem is most people enjoy stupid.
            Term limits would be the answer…how? Can’t give up. Maybe we get lucky and vote some of the right people in. Don’t you think we are as disgusted with the whole thing as you?
            Lastly,the media I know is controlled. But what I can not figure out is there not 1-2 mavericks out there looking for a Pulitzer. I mean “Watergate”
            was a joke. How can so much stuff be suppressed now.
            I blame the media the most and when it comes time for tar and feathers they should be front of line.
            Without their complicity none of this would have got this far.
            PS. Try holding your nose when you vote. Works for me. 😀

            • Steve, even with all the voting going on we find ourselves in a socialist/fascist state, globally now. The German people voted for Hitler at one time because they believed all the hype. The Australians have had compulsory voting for a hundred years now, and have you noticed what a mess the aussies are in with Juliar Gillard selling her country down the river with all the carbon taxes and Chinese buyout of what’s left of aussie industry? Did the people really, really vote to be poor? But because, on paper, the aussies have a 96% turnout the government reasons that it has “concensus” to do whatever it wants. There was concensus hundreds of years ago that the world was flat!!!
              Sorry Steve, we’ll have to agree to disagree!! I haven’t voted for 30 years, not since I started analysing what was going on. I could never understand how changing political parties every five years could improve things for us normal people, then I discovered that elections are a distraction for the masses so that they feel they have a say. It’s token democracy. The faces may change but the underlying governing structures stay the same, the bureaucrats and powerful lobby interests steer the juggernaut. And juggernauts are hard to change course and stop. These juggernauts work to five, ten, 20 and 50 and more, year plans. With the present system, in my personal view which goes against the majority view as usual, it is a waste of time voting.
              So no, I’ve no intention of voting ever again, they’ll have to lock me up for being a subversive! At least I won’t have to pay any more taxes!! And I’ll lose my voting rights LOL!
              My suggestion for a possible remedy would be smaller communities, but even then everyone still has to be vigilant against psychopaths and liars. The majority of problems are caused by a small percentage of low-empathy people with the tacit acceptance of the uninformed majority. So blogs such as this one have an important duty to spread the word in order to educate ourselves about the vampires out there. Disraeli had some useful things to say about government, “Governments do not govern, but merely control the machinery of government, being themselves controlled by the hidden hand.”
              Peace and namaste.

               
              • minou, I agree blogs like ours are very important. I always wondered how the German people became Nazi’s so easy. Hell if it weren’t for the web now and instant dissemination of info I think we’d be there too.
                Voting may seem useless, but to not vote just seems to me that we pass on the chance of a few good people now and then.
                I don’t think it’s the answer at all. Just may put a speed bump in their way.
                Throughout History, time comes and people finally have enough. They will then rise up and throw off their chains. I believe we are living in such a time. Won’t be pretty, but it never is.

  3. Never did answer the question.

     
  4. This coming from a woman who said it’s “legal to hunt humans”. IDIOT!

     
  5. This lady needs to be put away in moth balls.
    She is out of touch, and worse of all seems to be out to lunch. In other words, the lights are on but nobody’s there. The man asked her questions should have been far more direct and to the point, he played straight into her hands. She is completely out of order, and her rationale for her legislation is off kilter. She wants people to look at gory photos of the children who were shot at Sandy Hook as the main reason for her stance.
    Obviousloy the sight is most likely quite horrific, but the pprinciple of the freedom of the citizens of the United states is on the line, her principles are peverted because she is attempting to use emotional blackmail as a reason for breaking her own oath taken when she took office.
    She cannot therefore be trusted. Neither in fact can any of the members of Congress who vote with their emotions not on principle, they have no character and it’s ruining the United States, and that is having a really bad influence on the rest of the world. I don’t hear here witnessing for Christ by showing you pictures of him being crucified, that would be far too honest.

     
  6. She’s 79…time to retire. Furthermore, she shouldn’t be there still. WE NEED TERM LIMITS NOW!!!!!! No more career politicians. They are the ones who are ruining our great country.

     
  7. Term limits and don’t elect attorneys!

     
  8. Senator Cruz is one of the good-guys. I hope he doesn’t get corrupted like the rest of them.

     
  9. she is not as smart a a 6 grader.

     
  10. these liberals like dianne are never happy,if every gun in america was given up she would then want to ban pocket knives,on and on,just like al gore claims to be so worried about climate change,he sold his tv station to al-jazera for about 550 million,mr green jeans is all about the cash.when liberals are for abortion,gay marriage,on and on,they are not happy until everyone is unhappy,what a shame!
