Taught by her grandma to lie , lie and lie some more. She learned her lesson well.
Pretend , act , and twist and distort all for power. Those characteristics sadly earn you a spot in the senate.
1: Gillibrand Owes The Clintons, Big League

Hillary Clinton reportedly mentored the Albany native and Dartmouth-educated corporate lawyer in the early 2000s. Gillibrand is a Clinton insider, having worked for Hillary on her 2000 campaign when she considered running in New York’s historically conservative 20th District in 2004. She was dissuaded by Hillary to wait until the political landscape was more favorable in 2006.

“When I hung up, I knew that she thought I should wait,” Gillibrand reportedly said. “A race in 2004 was premature and most likely unwinnable. Eventually, (Gillibrand’s spouse) Jonathan and I agreed that Hillary’s instincts were right.”

Instead, she took a job with disgraced Pres. Bill Clinton’s HUD Secretary Andrew Cuomo. The same now-Gov. Cuomo who recently signed an infanticide law legalizing all late-term abortions and the killing of babies after birth.

With the Clintons’ help, and massive amounts of PAC money funneled into the long-standing Republican district in 2006, Gillibrand ran with endorsements from the GOP, DNC and Working Families. Her ties to the Clintons continued through the years.

After Obama became president, then-Sen. Hillary Clinton was tapped as Secretary of State. With Hillary’s Senate post vacant, the fix was in to seat Gillibrand. Following a secret meeting with then-Gov. David Paterson and political pressure from Washington, Gillibrand seemingly leaped prominent candidates such as Andrew Cuomo. She still owes Hillary political favors to this day. Electing Gillibrand would renew Hillary’s political power.

2: Gillibrand Misled Voters On The Issues

Once considered a Blue Dog Democrat that moderate conservatives could trust, Gillibrand once enjoyed an “A” rating from the NRA, made campaign promises to crack down on illegal immigration and refused to vote for illegal immigrant amnesty. Gillibrand said she was a hardliner on American sovereignty and the rule of law.

Since joining the U.S. Senate, Gillibrand became a born again liberal. She consistently votes in lockstep with Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer, and has reversed her position on the core values she exposed during her first run for Congress. Although Gillibrand has tried to sell her change of direction by claiming her thinking has “evolved,” perhaps no sitting politician has changed their mind so rapidly or drastically. Consider her words when she enjoyed an A rating with the NRA.

She reportedly said she slept with a pair of firearms under her bed at night, claiming that “if I want to protect my family, if I want to have a weapon in the home, that should be my right.”

By 2018, she earned an F rating after falling in line with Chuck Schumer. Her recent statement on gun rights… “I just didn’t take the time that I should have to understand the issue from someone else’s perspective, not just from my own family or from my own community.”

Her position on illegal immigration has also gone from zero tolerance to open borders and eliminating ICE.

3: Gillibrand Supports Radical Leftists

With the current class of beginners in the U.S. House such as New York’s Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) and other socialists seeking to turn the U.S. into Venezuela, Sen. Gillibrand has been happy to throw her support behind popular ideas among radicals.

Gillibrand reportedly supports the Green New Deal that would add upwards of $100 trillion to the national debt, end all fossil fuel use and force people to only eat vegan diets. The proposed legislation is so ridiculous that Senate Democrats are angry Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is entertaining a vote on the very bill they wrote.

Gillibrand also wants civilian courts to take over military trials and expand welfare for all. Fortunately for Americans, her polling numbers remain in the single digits.

Vote her out.

    She has not a "smidgeon" of chance just to use Hussein's now famous word.

    It is a real enigma to understand why an army on the left signed up for running. I can think of only one: to hear years after years when their name is mentioned that she/he was a presidential candidate. That is the only benefit I see.

      Actually, it is the SAME reason we had 17.

      They are not in power, and ANYONE has a chance. They have to market the message, and find which one is resonating the most, so they can sell that HARD against trump.

      It is a huge Target Marketing Campaign. And they will be splintered because of it.

      Trump took down 15 on his side... I am looking forward to how he labels each and every one of them.

      The challenge is that the Conservative voices are being removed from the internet. The tools to motivate the right are being destroyed.

      And we have far to many "Idealistic" POSes that will not plug their nose and vote AGAINST the lunacy. While 99% of dems will ALWAYS vote against the conservative, even against their own best interests!

      Lets hope WalkAway and Candace (BLEXIT) and JEXIT are all doing their things...

    Take over military trials? Give me a break! Can we have any of these idiots committed? I think they've all be smoking the wrong stuff! I agree with Mark Levin. He says they are crazy!

      Noonan died in 2003, just before her 88th birthday. But a powerful New York Democrat remains indebted to her: her granddaughter, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, who announced on Tuesday that she would make a bid for the White House.

      The story of the little-known power broker, a secretary who used to zip around the New York State Capitol on roller skates, brings into sharp focus Gillibrand’s distinctive, and sometimes polarizing, approach to political combat, as well as her early electoral ambitions and acumen. It is also a parable of female organizing and influence, with lessons for a campaign tethered to the #MeToo movement.

      “I have no power,” Noonan said of her status, according to a 1985 book about Albany, in clear contrast to the authority she exercised as a confidante to the longtime mayor and as the president of the Albany County Democratic Women’s Club. “I’m just a full-time grandmother."
      Even as she refused to acknowledge her power, Noonan taught her granddaughter how to exercise it, according to Gillibrand.

      The New York senator has cultivated a reputation for pugnacity — among the traits she inherited from her maternal grandmother. Her broadsides are laced with curse words. But her language is tame, compared with how her grandmother spoke.

      “Polly never backed down from an argument she knew she could win, and that was pretty much all of them,” Gillibrand wrote in her 2014 book, “Off the Sidelines: Raise Your Voice, Change the World.” Her grandmother, she wrote, was a “spark plug." She stood just over 5 feet tall and “told dirty jokes to forewarn men who underestimated her because of her size. She could rattle off strings of expletives as long as a string of Christmas lights — five, eight, even ten in a row, never the same curse twice.”

    There is no NY "infanticide law" legalizing "killing of babies after birth." There is more than enough on which to reject these radical leftists. Echoing falsehoods is misleading and undermines credibility.
