This Sacred Organization is in Trouble

This would be an unacceptable fate for the organization, whose longstanding work in the realm of the Second Amendment has been indispensable.

For some reason, unbeknownst to the logical world, the liberal left seems to think that the National Rifle Association is training and arming mass murderers.

Okay, so that is a gross oversimplification of the truth, but it’s really not that far off, distance-wise, from the actual statements being made by these liberal lunatics.  In the wake of any major tragedy, Parkland or Vegas or Columbine or Sandy Hook, the left looks for a scapegoat.  In many of these cases, it will be a particular type of firearm, or a state whose laws allow for certain accessories.

The reason that these “weapons of war” is still available, however, is always pinned on the NRA – an organization hellbent on keeping our Second Amendment from being infringed by the radical left.

As the NRA defends our rights, the left hopes to tear a hole in the Constitution precisely in the un-infringeable parts.

Now, this sacred organization is in trouble, and it needs our help.

According to Rolling Stone, the National Rifle Association is having serious financial issues that may render it “unable to exist… or pursue its advocacy mission,” according to a legal complaint filed by the gun-rights organization against New York state.

In documents obtained by Rolling Stone, the NRA claims the state of New York subjected it to a “blacklisting campaign” that resulted in “tens of millions of dollars in damages” because it has lost insurance coverage, which it needs to “maintain its physical premises, convene off-site meetings and events, operate educational programs,” and “hold rallies, conventions, and assemblies.” Its inability to receive media liability insurance also jeopardizes the NRA’s TV programs and magazines, the gun group states in the complaint.

In May, New York financial regulators determined that the NRA was illegally selling insurance policies to gun owners that protected them from court costs after they fired weapons in acts of “intentional wrongdoing.”

The group claims these issues as life-threatening to the organization and said “it will be unable to exist as a not-for-profit or pursue its advocacy mission” if changes are not made.

“If their abuses are not enjoined, they will soon, substantially, succeed,” the suit read.

This would be an unacceptable fate for the organization, whose longstanding work in the realm of the Second Amendment has been indispensable.

Trump Channels HBO Blockbuster to Troll Democrats After Mueller Report’s Release

The President’s tweet carried with it a lot of bravado…but was it premature?

Published

Trump Twitter

The Mueller report has arrived, all 400+ pages of it, and the media at large is attempting to scour through it as quickly as possible at this early hour. Pundits are sitting around their special, “big news” sets, laptops ablaze like a well-lit Stonehenge, as these entertainers of “the news” attempt to breathlessly interpret the report in their own partisan language before the President and his lawyers speak on the subject. Trump, however, is a master media manipulator who will invariably get his point across, with or without the television media’s help. Such is that case today as the President piggybacked on the hype surrounding HBO’s Game of Thrones to bolster his base’s belief in him. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1118876219381026818 Critics of the President have been quick to point out that Mueller’s report specifically states that Congress is still able to work on the ten instances of “obstruction of justice” that the Special Counsel investigated, despite the President attempting to call “game over”. Attorney General Bill Barr said something quite different in a statement this morning. As for obstruction, Barr said that the report recounts 10 episodes involving Trump and “discusses potential legal theories for connecting these actions to elements of an obstruction offense.” But he said the White House “fully cooperated” with the investigation, and that he concluded that the evidence is not sufficient to establish an obstruction-of-justice offense by Trump. Regardless of whether you believe that President Trump is “exonerated” through this Mueller report, it would be foolish in any case to believe that this is “game over”…especially now that the democrats have a hold of this massive trove of information.

The Trump of Indonesia

Does all this sound familiar?

[The following was written by Flag & Cross contributor Steve Sherman.] Across the planet, the political establishment and their mainstream media supporters are being disrupted.  While populist revolts were bubbling beneath the surface for years, the election of Donald J. Trump supercharged and empowered opposition to the ruling elite and set in motion a worldwide reset of our politics.   The next bout in the international struggle against the establishment is playing out tomorrow in Indonesia.  Incumbent President Joko Widodo ran a pseudo Obama campaign of “change and hope” in 2014, riding the then-dominant political strategy to victory in the world’s third largest democracy. Widodo now faces a challenge to his failed regime from Trump-like challenger, Prabowo Subianto.  There’s lots to challenge.   The economy has been stagnant.  Corruption is rife.  And Widodo has morphed into the very thing he ran against in 2014 – a corrupt potentate interested only in enriching his cronies and maintaining his power. Worse, Widodo has introduced into the mix the People’s Republic of China.  Whereas his predecessors resisted the invasion of Chinese capital and personnel, Widodo has facilitated China gaining an historic stronghold in this archipelago nation of more than 17,000 islands. While his detractors have yet to produce proof that Widodo has been personally compensated and compromised through infamous Chinese government payoffs, the invasion from the mainland has severely unsettled his political coalition. Further complicating matters for the incumbent is his inability to deal with religious intolerance in this largest Muslim nation.   While Widodo tries to use the specter of Islamic fundamentalism to his advantage, he is undercut by his own missteps and those of his followers.  The world continues to reel over the pernicious jailing in Widodo’s political base province of former Jakarta governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama, an ethnic Chinese and a Christian.  Purnama has been imprisoned only because he is a…
