Kirsten Gillibrand is a bagman. She was handpicked by the Hillary Clinton/Chuck Schumer-corrupt-NY-Democrat-machine back in 2008 when then President-elect Barack Obama nominated Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State, leaving her senatorial seat empty. In some dirty back-door deal, this nobody was made Senator. They wanted a vassal, a beck and call girl. That’s Gillibrand.
You see, here in deep blue New York, we hold ceremonial elections that mean nothing. The Democrat machine runs this state like its own private fiefdom, a la Tammany Hall.
No one had ever heard of Gillibrand. Seven years later, we still haven’t heard of her. Until now. Who is putting her up to this is anyone’s guess. Soros? Obama? Huma?
But I can promise you this, I will lead a march on this woman if she pursues this. All attendees will be required to bring pitchforks and torches. If she wants to kill this state, she better be prepared for a knock down, drag out fight.
“New York Senator Wants to Take in 1.5 Million Syrian Migrants,” By Daniel Greenfield, FPM, November 12, 2015
How many of those 1.5 million can we dump on her lawn?
Kirsten Gillibrand is the least qualified person in the Senate. Picked by Schumer as part of some local political payola, she beat out the even more unqualified Caroline Kennedy (whom Obama instead inflicted on the long-suffering people of Japan) to be the other Senator from New York.
You know, the one who doesn’t do anything except make awkward efforts to pretend that she has some idea of what she’s doing.
So CBS had to go and ask her about Syria. Which is like asking a marmot about nanotechnology. And she gave the stupidest possible combination of answers.
Obama recently announced plans to send fewer than 50 Special Operations troops to Syria in an advisory role.
“I don’t think it’s a strategy that will work long-term,” Gillibrand said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
She also noted that she is opposed to escalating military involvement and sending in more troops. Instead, she favors an increased focus on countering the humanitarian crisis, saying the United States could be taking in more refugees, as Germany is.
Syria’s humanitarian crisis is military in nature. Taking in more people doesn’t solve anything. It just moves the problem and the violence and terrorism over to us.
We’re talking about a country with a population of 22 million. Germany may end up taking in 1.5 million. How many would the least qualified senator in America like to take in? If Kirsten Gillibrand wants us to take in more refugees like Germany, how many of those 1.5 million can we dump on her lawn?
And if ISIS expands further into Iraq, or Jordan, Libya and Yemen, how many of those millions should we take?
