Trump Moves to Bolster NRA with UN Arms Treaty Maneuver

Trump signed the executive order in front of a raucous crowd to hammer home his commitment to the cause.

Donald Trump NRA Second Amendment guns

This week, as President Trump addressed the National Rifle Association, his broader strategy was certainly on display.

Trump, for all of the chaos of his presidency, has been an ardent supporter of the National Rifle Association, and for good reason:  The Second Amendment is the only insurance the We The People have against tyranny.  Sure, it’s also a great place to garner votes, but don’t let the political weight of organization overshadow its purpose.

Now, in an unlikely place, The United Nations, President Trump has found a way to help secure our right to bear arms.

President Trump effectively “unsigned” an international arms sales agreement Friday, moving to withdraw the U.S. from the United Nations’ Arms Trade Treaty. The agreement sets global standards for regulating transfers of conventional arms, from rifles to tanks and airplanes.

The treaty, known as the ATT, has been in effect since late 2014. The U.S. signed on to the agreement in 2013 but has not ratified the treaty.

The U.S. withdrawal had been expected. Trump made it official at the National Rifle Association’s annual convention in Indianapolis, pulling out a pen onstage and signing a paper that he said would take back the Obama administration’s signature on behalf of the U.S.

And why does this international move help with domestic gun rights?

The ATT has long been a target of the NRA, which claimed it would harm U.S. gun owners. Trump echoed that criticism on Friday, calling the ATT a threat to Second Amendment rights. “We will never surrender America’s sovereignty to an unelected, unaccountable, global bureaucracy,” Trump was quoted as saying, in a White House statement announcing the change.

In grand Trump fashion, he singed the executive order from the podium at an NRA event, even throwing his singing pen to the crowd afterward.

A slip of the tongue? It’s possible. But probably not. Upon returning to Minneapolis after getting together with “the squad” to blast President Trump for being racist die to his “go back” tweets, Ilhan said Somalia was her country. Hmmm… From American Mirror: Rep. Ilhan Omar slipped and referred to Somalia as “my country” during a welcome home party at the Minneapolis airport this week.

Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) claimed border patrol agents were terrorizing immigrants and said Congress should have a conversation about eliminating border patrol and enforcement agencies. Marc Lamont Hill, who was fired as a CNN commentator after he publicly called for the destruction of the state of Israel during a speech to the United Nations, is the main host of the morning digital show. He asked Omar about the ongoing immigration crisis at the southern border.

Former Guv Says Racists Like Trump Have No Place in VA, Forgot About State’s Governor In Blackface

THE IRONY! It’s just too dang perfect…

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open one’s mouth and remove all doubt. Former Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe (D) did not heed these words. The Clinton-ally says racists and white supremacists like Donald Trump have no place in the Old Dominion state. Clearly, McAuliffe forgot that the state’s current governor, Ralph Northam, either wore blackface or dressed in a KKK outfit (he can’t remember which) in his youth. It was kind of a big scandal earlier this year, Ter-bear! Racists and white nationalists have no place in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Go home, @realDonaldTrump. https://twitter.com/TerryMcAuliffe/status/1152398888881577984?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1152398888881577984&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F07%2F20%2Fterry-mcauliffe-says-that-racists-and-white-nationalists-like-trump-have-no-place-in-virginia%2F You can’t make this stuff up.

Democrats and Republicans are calling for Northam’s resignation, but he says he’s not leaving his post. Here’s what 45 had to say on the subject… Democrat Governor Ralph Northam of Virginia just stated, “I believe that I am not either of the people in that photo.” This was 24 hours after apologizing for appearing in the picture and after making the most horrible statement on “super” late term abortion.
