The NRA, In Their Legal Battle With New York AG, Gets VERY Unlikely Ally

Published

on

There was a time when liberty was a universal value. In the last decade, we’ve watched as those on the right and the left became so polarized–and so polarizing–in their own pet issues, they often seem to have forgotten that liberty for one is liberty for all.

And whether or not you agree with the rights of given advocacy groups, there is a point where if you see their First Amendment rights to advocate for their pet issues is worth defending…because their First Amendment is your First Amendment, too.

This is, stunningly, the reasoning the ACLU has apparently taken as they’ve decided to step up to the plate on behalf of the NRA.

Yes, you read that right.

The far-left, notoriously progressive American Civil Liberties Union has sided with the National Rifle Association, the Second Amendment advocacy group on which the vast majority of the left seems to rest all the blame for gun violence.

This is absolutely the kind of thing we need to see much, much more of these days.

The case has to do with the New York Attorney General’s attempt to punish corporations or financial institutions that do business with the NRA, which is something that, the ACLU has quite sensibly realized, if successful, could sent a precedence for other states to target groups the ACLU likes, like Planned Parenthood or even the ACLU itself.

The Daily Wire explains:

The state of New York is looking to repeat the Obama Administration’s disastrous, and likely unconstitutional efforts in Operation Choke Point, a Department of Justice program that levied similar sanctions on institutions that did business with groups the Obama Administration considered “unsavory,” like gun manufacturers, fireworks vendors, home-based charities, payday lenders, pornography producers, and, according to Forbes, any “legal businesses that the Obama administration deem[ed] to be politically incorrect.”

Operation Choke Point ended in 2017, after it fell under Congressional scrutiny. The Trump Administration ended the practice completely.

But then New York decided to take up the yoke of punishing businesses it felt didn’t deserve the right to contract with whom they pleased inside the state’s borders.

Initially the NRA argued that it would suffer severe financial damage because of New York’s rules, but later, the Texas Public Policy foundation, arguing on behalf of the NRA, suggested that New York’s efforts actually impacted the NRA’s First Amendment rights.

In their amicus brief, the ACLU agreed, arguing that New York’s rule “‘would set a dangerous precedent for advocacy groups,’ no matter their viewpoint, because public officials would be encouraged to use their regulatory power against the ‘disfavored.'”

Well goodness gracious there just might be hope for our liberal Republic after all…

Resistance Agitators Deface Trump Hollywood Star with Profane Putin Parable

The “resistance” is but a symptom of our sick society, and we are running out of time to turn it around.

The “resistance” to President Trump is nothing more than a symptom of a sick society, and none of us are completely innocent. We’ve fallen victim to the mainstream media’s “infotainment” whims for so long that we no longer resemble the nation were were built to be.  Instead of free thinkers, focusing on liberty and pursuit of happiness, we’ve shuffled ourselves into tiny little boxes marked “red” and “blue”, or “democrat” and “republican”. And I get it, it’s exhilarating to argue on the internet with one another and gain those bits of validation from our peers, but we are producing a much larger problem than the hurt feelings on Facebook.  We are falling victim to the sensationalism of the mainstream publishers because, now, thanks to social media, we are all publishers. It is this false dichotomy that created the “resistance” to President Trump, and it’s the “resistance” who are dragging our national state of mind back into the early 1860’s, as evidenced by the latest defacing of President Trump’s Hollywood Walk of Fame Star. We must warn you, the language ahead is profane. President Trump’s Walk of Fame star got a fresh coat of paint, but he ain’t gonna be thrilled about it … because it was spray paint and it spelled out … “Putin’s Bitch.” Trump’s star was attacked again early Wednesday morning, and TMZ has the footage of the vandals in the act. Around 3:40 AM … one guy — who appears to have blonde hair — sprayed a coat of black paint over the star. Then, in white paint, he added his coup de grace. There was another man with the vandal … shooting photos and/or video. The graffiti is alluding to a widely held conspiracy theory among opponents of the President that the Oval Office has somehow been compromised…

President Trump Contradicts Mueller Report on Key Democratic Concern

The President is claiming that Don McGhan’s sworn testimony in the Mueller report is a lie.

The fight over the public perception of the Mueller report has been raging in Washington and on television for the last several days, and there looks to be no end in sight. The media is doing their thing, whatever that thing seems to be.  They are dividing the nation up into easily definable segments as a way to pit us against each other, because an angry America makes for great ratings. Politicians are certainly doing their part as well, with democratic lawmakers insisting on a nonstop issuance of subpoenas to those involved in the report’s manufacture, as well as some legal requests from way outside the realm of RussiaGate. Amid all this, the President is standing firm in his insistence that there was “no collusion, no obstruction”, even going so far today as to cast doubts on the authenticity of the testimony of his own aides. President Donald Trump denied Thursday he ordered White House Counsel Don McGahn to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller. “As has been incorrectly reported by the Fake News Media, I never told then-White House Counsel Don McGahn to fire Robert Mueller, even though I had the legal right to do so,” the president wrote on Twitter. “If I wanted to fire Mueller, I didn’t need McGahn to do it, I could have done it myself.” Trump noted that ultimately Mueller was not fired and was allowed to complete his investigation, even though there was no crime to investigate. Robert Mueller’s report on Russian interference on the 2016 election contained sworn testimony from McGhan to the contrary, and this is one of the key points of the democratic party’s renewed interest in the possibility of charging the President with obstruction of justice.
