Fortunately California’s voters will have a clear choice to remove the 78 year-old senior Senator from CA. when they go to the polls on November 6th.
Elizabeth Emken has the credentials, and backing of the Republican Party to remove the clearly tired Diane Feinstein.
It’s time to let Elizabeth Emken lead the way for California to becoming the Golden State where Feinstein’s tax policies have led to Nearly four million more people leaving the Golden State in the last two decades than have come from other states.
This is a sharp reversal from the 1980s, when 100,000 more Americans were settling in California each year than were leaving. Most of those leaving are young families and California’s future tax base.
Factually, California’s fiscal woes are a small microcosm of what is seen under the progressive agenda of President Barack Hussein Obama. California needs a strict fiscal conservative, Elizabeth Emken is ready for the responsibility.
Feinstein has been an embarrassment to herself and the entire U.S. Senate with insider dealings that have contributed significantly to her own personal wealth as she steered contracts to her husbands firm.
Senator Dianne Feinstein on Tuesday placed a hold on two controversial pieces of legislation that would force states that allow the concealed carrying of guns to recognize each others permits.
Apparently unaware that citizens of the once Golden State are now put in danger by the criminal element, the rapists, muggers and murderers who carry illegal weapons. Yes Senator you were for backing California’s law abiding citizens to open carry their weapons. Not really a bad idea, but opposing concealed carry permits make those living in California the only state to not carry weapons in any manner for self-defense.
Feinstein informed party leadership that she would oppose the quick passage of two concealed carry reciprocity bills that critics argue would cause a “race to the bottom” in terms of concealed weapon law in the United States.
The senator cited the shooting of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed teenager killed in Florida, as one of the reasons she was applying the legislative brakes.
“Besides putting domestic violence victims in danger, the concealed carry reciprocity bills would also create potentially life threatening situations for law enforcement officers,” Feinstein wrote in a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.).
Could the senator be any further out of touch with the Second Amendment?
So she brings up the Trayvon Martin tragedy, then suggests that doing so would inexplicably protect victims of domestic violence, while stating that it would put law enforcement officers in danger.
The hold does not eliminate the possibility of passing the bills through regular order, with 60-vote requirements to start and end debate. But it’s unclear whether enough support actually exists in the Senate.
This may have been the wrong card to play Senator Feinstein. Many Senate Democrats have constituents who are very much opposed to your interference. Combine this with your repeated “ethical lapses,” you are indeed Too Long and Too Wrong for California.
