On August 17, 2020, former congresswoman Susan Molinari gave a 30-second statement during the Democrat National Convention bashing President Donald Trump and backing Joe Biden’s presidential bid.

“I’ve known Donald Trump for most of my political career,” Molinari said at the start of the video clip.

“So disappointing, and lately so disturbing,” she added.

Molinari boasted about how she knows Biden personally and how she has collaborated with him on women’s’ issues, with particular emphasis on women in business and violence against women.

She said that she’s proud to call Biden a friend and supports him in the 2020 presidential election.

“He’s a really good man and exactly what this nation needs at this time,” she stated.

Ever since she left her congressional spot in 1997 for a stint in the media, Molinari has kept a relatively low profile as far as politics is concerned.

Since leaving politics, she has endorsed Republican presidential candidates such as George W. Bush and Mitt Romney.

Most of her political work since leaving Congress has consisted of consulting and lobbying.

She founded Susan Molinari Strategies LLC, a consulting firm. In addition, she worked previously at Bracewell and Giuliani LLP and was also chair and CEO of the Washington Group.

One Twitter user pointed out Molinari’s background as lobbyist. David Dayen, the Executive Editor of The American Prospect, tweeted “The former Republican Congressmember endorsing Biden, and speaking tonight at the convention, is Susan Molinari, who was Google’s top lobbyist in DC for several years.”

During 2012 to 2018, she was vice president for public policy for Google, where she served as the company’s main lobbyist.

Another user noted that Molinari is currently part of APCO Worldwide’s International Advisory Council (IAC). The user tweeted, “Now she’s at Huawei’s former lobbying firm APCO!”

Molinari joined APCO Worldwide back in October 2019. APCO Worldwide used to work alongside the Chinese tech company Huawei. The two broke ties last year amid pressure from the Trump administration to crack down on the Chinese company due to its alleged ties to the Chinese Communist Party.

Molinari spoke alongside other Republicans such as former Ohio Governor John Kasich and former New Jersey Governor Christine Todd Whitman during the “We The People Putting Country Over Party” segment.

Several establishment Republicans have endorsed Biden. These include former Secretary of State Colin Powell and failed White House communication director Anthony Scaramucci, who only lasted two weeks in the Trump administration.

Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation

Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.

If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.

Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional. 

AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.

In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.

At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”

In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.” 

Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”

According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”

When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”

Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
