Here’s the scoop…

Citing breach of contract and fraud, Nevada-based Battle Born Munitions filed suit in federal court against Dick’s Sporting Goods this week.

At the root of the filing is what BBM says was the failure by Dick’s to hold up their end of a contract for the ammo distributor to supply the retailer with Field & Stream-branded ammo for resale in their stores. The delay by the big box sporting goods outlet, argues the filing, resulted in BBM losing out on a multi-million dollar contract to supply helicopters to an overseas U.S. ally.

The 11-page lawsuit filed Tuesday in a Pennsylvania federal court details that the two companies entered into an agreement in January 2016 to supply ammo packaged with Dick’s trademarked Field & Stream packaging. Acting on the contract, BBM paid two ammo manufacturers — Bosnian-based Igman and Hungarian-based RUAG — a total of $4.5 million for the product and made the munitions available to Dick’s by November of the same year, a delivery timeline stipulated by the contract. However, BBM says Dick’s then left them holding the bag for almost a year, refusing to pay them or take delivery of the ammo.

The house-branded ammo, which could not be repacked and sold to another retailer due to the Field & Stream headstamp on the cartridges, was eventually accepted by Dick’s but the intervening storage, at BBM’s expense, cost the ammo distributor $200,000. Further, since BBM’s cash was tied up in the stalled deal, they could not fill a contract with Lebanon for a batch of Bell helicopters, losing out on an additional $5 million, which they are seeking to recoup from Dick’s.

Lobbying against gun ownership was not a great move for Dick’s.

The Chairman & CEO of the company, Edward W. Stack, noted in a press release on February 28, 2018: “Following all of the rules and laws, we sold a shotgun to the Parkland shooter in November of 2017. It was not the gun, nor type of gun, he used in the shooting. But it could have been.”

“Clearly this indicates on so many levels that the systems in place are not effective to protect our kids and our citizens.”

“We believe it’s time to do something about it.”

“Beginning today, DICK’S Sporting Goods is committed to the following:”

– “We will no longer sell assault-style rifles, also referred to as modern sporting rifles. We had already removed them from all DICK’S stores after the Sandy Hook massacre, but we will now remove them from sale at all 35 Field & Stream stores.”

– “We will no longer sell firearms or ammunition to anyone under 21 years of age.”

– “We will no longer sell high capacity magazines.”

– “We never have and never will sell bump stocks that allow semi-automatic weapons to fire more rapidly.”

AOC Strikes Back At Manchin For Criticizing Her, Says He’s Diminishing ‘Seriousness Of’ My ‘Policy Work’

Published

The Democratic Party is experiencing a lot of in-fighting between the hardcore socialist wing and the more traditionally center-left establishment, a battle that is clearly seen by the tiff between Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Joe Manchin. Manchin recently slammed AOC, stating that she spends most of her time on Twitter rather than being active in Congress. This comment didn’t sit well with the congresswoman who is lashing out in retaliation against Manchin for his comment, accusing him of “diminishing the seriousness” of her “policy work.” “I find it amusing when politicians try to diminish the seriousness of our policy work, movement organizing & grassroots fundraising to ‘she just tweets,’ as though ‘serious’ politics is only done by begging corporate CEOs for money through wax-sealed envelopes delivered by raven,” AOC posted on Twitter. https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1333958991613923331 via Daily Wire: Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet came in response to a comment Manchin made in response to her trolling him on social media. “I guess she put the dagger stare on me,” Manchin told The New York Times. “I don’t know the young lady — I really don’t. I never met her. I’m understanding she’s not that active with her bills or in committee. She’s more active on Twitter than anything else.” The report noted that Manchin’s words constituted “a sharp insult” because in the U.S. Senate “legislative prowess is prized.” According to Congress.gov, Ocasio-Cortez has not introduced a single bill as the primary sponsor that has become law. In fact, the furthest any of her bills have made it is to Floor Consideration and that was just one bill. She has cosponsored 11 bills that have become law. Manchin, a centrist Democrat, also conducted an interview with Fox News in which he ripped AOC and her buddies. “They’ll have to answer to the public,” Manchin told…

Rudy Giuliani

The NY Times has managed to get a lot of things wrong over the years that President Trump has been in office. How many times does this publication need to have its credibility shot all to pieces before folks stop reading it? President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani is currently denying a report published by the New York Times that suggests he once discussed a preemptive pardon as recently as last week. “#FakeNews NYT lies again,” he posted on Twitter. via Newsmax: “Never had the discussion they falsely attribute to an anonymous source,” Giuliani said. “Hard to keep up with all their lies.” Giuliani, who has not been charged with any crime, has drawn scrutiny for his dealings in Ukraine on behalf of President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani has come out and denied allegations made in a recent New York Times report that he discussed a pardon with the commander-in-chief. Giuliani’s lawyer, Robert Costello, told the Times that Giuliani is not concerned about the investigation, “because he didn’t do anything wrong, and that’s been our position from Day 1.” Mainstream media news outlets have been biased against the president for a long, long time. Since he first announced his bid for the White House. They recognize his power and influence over regular Americans. His ability to relate to the common man and to actually do what he says he’s going to do frightens liberals. Trump stands in direct opposition to their goal of transforming our country into a socialist nightmare. Is it any wonder they’d start targeting those who have helped him in his crusade to put America first?
