NRA Sues Governor Cuomo

*Editor’s Note* – And good luck with that. Although, neither the NRA nor the Governor needs any luck as I’m convinced this “lawsuit” (wink-wink) is nothing more than a dog and pony show.

On Friday, May 11, 2018, in the United States District Court for the Northern District of New York, the NRA filed a lawsuit claiming  that Gov. Cuomo, and his Director of Financial Services (DFS) have engaged in a “campaign of selective prosecution, backroom exhortations, and public threats” designed to coerce banks and insurance companies to withhold services from the NRA.

The NRA argues that such tactics vastly overstep DFS’s regulatory mandate, and seek to suppress the speech of Second Amendment supporters and retaliate against the NRA and others for their political advocacy.

The lawsuit seeks millions of dollars in damages to redress harms inflicted by the DFS campaign.

Among other things, the lawsuit cites a pair of “guidance” letters issued on April 19, 2018, by the DFS to the CEOs of banks and insurance companies doing business in New York.  Styled as regulatory “risk management” advisories, the letters encourage institutions to “take prompt actions” to manage “reputational risk” posed by dealings with “gun promotion organizations.”

The same day, Cuomo issued a press release in which the Director directly urged “all insurance companies and banks doing business in New York” to “discontinue their arrangements with the NRA.”

NRA Appoints Oliver North as its President

Seriously? So, just what is the image the NRA is trying to present themselves as? Are they making sure that everyone knows they are nothing more than a “good-ole-boy” political pawn of the U.S. Corporation?

As many of you may well know, I am not a fan of the NRA. Short one stint of membership with the NRA that lasted one-year several years ago, I have not been a member of the NRA and do not support them today. They present themselves as THE supporter and defender of the Second Amendment when in reality they work tirelessly to water down the amendment and seemingly carry out the bidding of whoever the standing administration is in Washington promoting “reasonable” restrictions on a constitutional amendment that was intended to not be allowed changes or limitations.

Now, the NRA has asked Oliver North to be their president. Many see Oliver North as their hero…I suppose because he was a Marine, wore lots of medals and bling and worked for the NSC during the Reagan years. No matter how you want to present North in your mind’s eye, he was a crook, a thief, a cheat and some would go so far as to call him a traitor. You and I would have locked up and the key thrown away.

North claimed responsibility for devising the machination of “Iran Contra” as well as the system that would illegally sell guns to the Iranians in exchange for cash that would be funneled through a “shell” organization, on to a Washington, D.C. bank that was a favorite of some in the Republican Party (wink-wink) and with connections to black organizations all over the world.

And yet, after North retired from the Marines during his investigation and trial and was found guilty of his involvement, subsequently all charges were “dismissed” – an obvious and deliberate indication that he was going to be protected by a crooked government that sent him to carry out the affair in the beginning. There are no laws that govern those that govern.

Regardless of what you may think of Oliver North, even though he was a member of the NRA Board, moving him up to become the new president of the NRA is a bold move on the part of the NRA and one that could backfire enormously and create an even bigger mess for them in the long run. For certain it will increase the divide between those who support the Second Amendment and those that blame the NRA for all gun violence.

Some will buy into the concept that North’s high profile will be a bonus, along with his perceived strength and connections, but seriously, why is it that people think that any organization that claims to be staunch defenders of the Second Amendment would do everything in their power to align and connect themselves with the U.S. Corporation?

The insanity that exists in this country reveals itself when the overwhelming majority of Americans say that the U.S. Government is corrupt and they have no faith in them to do anything much good, and then turn around and run to the same Federal Government for strength and protection.

Nope! Sorry! You can continue to pay your money to the NRA and now you can have Oliver North as your spokesperson who will in their deceptive ways continue to downgrade the Second Amendment to nothing more than a government allotment of a right to keep and bear only those arms THEY deem appropriate and purchased the only way THEY deem appropriate and kept the only way THEY deem appropriate.

SHALL NEVER BE INFRINGED?

When Businesses Practice Political Idealism

We have all seen it before. Some business decides that in protest of some political idealism they will no longer sell a connected product or service. The latest in a long list of bad business decisions seem to be when the manufacturers of the “Yeti” products of coolers and hot/cold cups decided to no longer sponsor some of the National Rifle Association’s activities.

Of course, that’s their decision.

But what if? What if everyone decided to base their productivity, manufacture, and creativity on some pie-in-the-sky political idealism? Or maybe they always have and none of us are even aware of it.

Think about how much different the world might have been…Or not!

Is The NRA All Bad?

I guess that depends upon one’s perspective. As many of you might know, I have been very hard on the National Rifle Association (NRA) and other so-called Second Amendment advocate groups of late. But I should point out right away that I stand behind every one of my accusations about those groups.

In an opinion piece found at the Patriot Post, the writer begins to get off the “we got to ban guns” attack and focuses a bit more on the real societal issues driving the violent actions by some. The author mentions our failure at addressing mental illness and growing up in a “fatherless” home. But the real focus seemed to be on making schools safer.

All of these are suggested pills to take to mask the symptoms of a greater problem – a growing immoral, and Godless society.

I’ve discovered through reading this opinion piece that the NRA has an organization called National School Shield. It’s stated Mission is as follows: “The National School Shield®  program is committed to addressing the many facets of school security, including best practices in security infrastructure, technology, personnel, training, and policy. Through this multidimensional effort, National School Shield® seeks to engage communities and empower leaders to help make our schools more secure.”

And that’s pretty much all you will find out about what specifically they do that makes schools safer while engaging communities and EMPOWERING leaders (shivers running up and down my spine). I guess you have to “trust” them. And by the way, they want you to donate.

And therein lies some of the rub. Yes, they state that each school is different and that the issue of school safety is not simple, etc. It all sounds good. Who wouldn’t want a safer school setting? Hadn’t we ought to know more about this and precisely what sort of things they are suggesting that include “best practices in security?” I guess you could call them and try to find out. I didn’t.

Looking at who heads this program and knowing it is a product of the NRA, it is easy to see they are a non-governmental organization that is run by the government, as so many of them today are. If you trust your government and you trust the NRA I would suppose you would find this program right up your alley. You can exclude me. I think there are better answers but not until more people are ready to accept what the problem really is.

In addition to close government affiliation, we find on the NSS website that the ONLY ones eligible to participate in their “training” programs are current or former licensed law-enforcement personnel. Sorry! That’s a big turn-off for me.

I know that after 9/11 the country made heroes out of every cop that ever lived. Cops are cops. They are but human. They are not blanket heroes and shouldn’t be dangerously placed in a position that causes them to think they have more power than they do. We don’t need to enhance the police state atmosphere that already exists. Fear will do that.

There are probably a lot of good people more than qualified to participate in this training program. Why just cops?

To get back to my original question is the NRA all bad, I guess I’ll leave that answer up to you. I see them as not all bad but they are far from all good either. Is this program all bad? Maybe and maybe not. I for one would not put any faith and trust in it but you must understand I wouldn’t put much faith and trust in most things a man does and especially the government.

Mildly put, I am quite skeptical.

The NRA Are Hypocrites

Perhaps doing a slightly better job of pointing out the insanity of the newly-signed bill in Florida than the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the NRA shows their hypocrisy on their NRA-ILA website (surrounded by “Donate Now” buttons).

Evidently, the NRA completely supports parts of the new bill (as does the NSSF and others) including the blanket approval of actions to “educate” and “rat” on anyone “suspected” of having mental issues and ceding more fascist authority to the police to confiscate guns and ask questions later. As Trump stated, he preferred to confiscate guns first and worry about Due Process later. Nice…real nice! Leadership? Hmm!

This and a plea that states: “Contact your members of Congress and state lawmakers today and ask them to oppose all gun control schemes that would only impact law-abiding gun owners.”

Maybe the NRA should take a lesson out of their own playbook. If we lined up all the “gun control schemes” the NRA has been promoters and supporters of, it might make a fairly large book.

And it’s time to ask why the NRA thinks giving more power to cops to confiscate your property and at the same time allow governments to decide what is mental illness in the context of gun buying/ownership and what it is that is to be “educated” upon the people, isn’t supporting “gun control schemes” that impact law-abiding gun owners?

Wording is everything. The NRA states (above) that: “…oppose all gun control schemes that would only impact law-abiding gun owners.” (emboldening added) Are they saying that it is okay to support “gun control schemes” that impact gun owners and criminals together? Their historic record seems to indicate that, which in turn makes them an anti-Second Amendment organization. So, keep sending them money! MONEY-MONEY-MONEY!!!

The NRA also says that: “If we want to prevent future atrocities, we must look for solutions that keep guns out of the hands of those who are a danger to themselves or others, while protecting the rights of law-abiding Americans.”

According to how the NRA operates those solutions all involve giving up some of your rights. I guess they call that compromise. Either it’s a right or it’s a meted out privilege. Have we already forgotten that a previous administration in the White House believed that GIs returning from war who sought any kind of emotional assistance should be banned from owning a gun? Apparently so! What could possibly go wrong when Government decides your state of mind? Who decides theirs?

And is the NRA suggesting that we take away a person’s right to “innocent until proven guilty” and “Due Process” as a solution to a problem that doesn’t exist; a fairytale that it will prevent further crimes by “mental” people?

The answer appears to be yes. It is obvious (to me anyway) that the NRA pisses on the Second Amendment and then tells people it’s raining, so why wouldn’t they be willing to offer to give up even more of your rights to the sacrificial lamb (money and power)?

But if forget. You think the NRA is your best friend. He ain’t much of a friend, but he’s the only one you have…right?

It’s What’s Wrong With Those Pretend Second Amendment Advocates

I tire of reading and hearing idiots say that they might realize groups like the NRA and the NSSF aren’t perfect but they are better than nothing. Are they? Is it better to be slowly eaten to death by ants than to just have it over with in an instance? The end result is going to be the same.

Perhaps some don’t want to talk about the realization that all of these fake Second Amendment groups are no different than any other group – they’re in it for the money. Yeah, that’s right. It’s the money stupid.

You see, groups like these can’t be real supporters of the Second Amendment because there is not so much money in it. The broader the base of their support the more money. So, instead of simply standing up and saying I have an inalienable right to choose how I will defend myself and my property and that choice might involve a gun, a hatchet, a golf club, or a Bible, they appeal to where the most money is. You know, those “reasonable” limits to what God gave you even before you were born?

They want your money…period!

Do you need more proof? Or is it more comfortable to just pretend they are on your side? Your choice.

Today the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) sent out an email asking that you contact Florida Governor Rick Scott and ask him to veto the recently passed bill that demolishes your inalienable rights and those granted to you by your government.

Yesterday I reported on the passage of SB7026, a bill that would place your mental status in the hands of some government agent who is, perhaps, more insane than you are. This bill would rebuild the school in Parkland where the latest shooting took place – I suppose to make sure to remove any evidence that might incriminate the bastards who actually did the shooting. In addition, insane propagandized automatons are going to “educate” more and more of you to teach you how to rat someone out you might think is mentally deranged because…GASP… they own a gun.

If you are in favor of this fascist government deciding whether or not you are insane, then you’ll love the idea that this bill gives YOUR heroes, the cops, more power to confiscate your property because some fascist/totalitarian has determined that you shouldn’t possess a gun. I’m sure while they are taking your guns, they’ll pause for a moment and gun down a few of you who they THOUGHT was armed and dangerous. You and 9/11 created them.

And there’s more, much more but I won’t bore you with such insignificant details because I know you don’t care. Trust your heroes!

So, back to the NSSF. They ask members/readers to contact the Florida governor for a veto because of the age restriction included in this bill. The new law raises the age to 21 as a minimum age to buy a gun. With that and a 3-day waiting period, what’s to complain about?

The NSSF writes: “The National Shooting Sports Foundation supports measures to increase school security and ensure that the mentally ill and prohibited persons are unable to obtain firearms; however, we strongly oppose any proposal to increase the age from 18 to 21 for the purchase of long guns. Raising the minimum age to 21 to purchase a shotgun or a rifle for lawful purposes is an infringement on the constitutional rights of young adults between the ages of 18 and 20. In the United States, you are an adult when you turn 18. Your constitutional rights are fully vested, including the right to vote and the right to keep and bear arms. This unconstitutional age-based gun ban would deny young adults their right to self-protection.”

Evidently, they are NOT, I repeat NOT, supporters of the Second Amendment or your right to be able to defend yourself how and when you choose. To the NSSF, evidently, all they care about is the age limit of when you can buy a gun. Is that because this would severely cut into the profits of the gun manufacturing industry who are probably heavy supporters (give gobs of money) to groups like the NSSF and NRA? Don’t tell me you never thought to that.

They tell us they support school security and keeping guns out of the hands of the mentally ill (they discount themselves of course) but instead of reading and listening to the lying, cheating, frauds in the Media and from these political groups, why not take some responsibility and go read the damned bill that just passed. There’s nothing in it that will do any of what they say they support…nothing! But the rhetoric and talking points of the bill appeal to a broader base of people = more money, more money!

Upon discovery, an honest person would then ask why is the NSSF only speaking out asking the governor to veto the bill because of the age restriction? Why aren’t they asking that the entire bill is vetoed and never brought up in the Florida Legislature or any other legislature in this country? It’s because if they did, they would lose the financial support from all those who simply love to give the government all their rights and turn them into meted-out privileges. Got to think about the salaries and retirement benefits.

If the NSSF and the NRA whittled their membership down to only the true understanders of inalienable rights and government-issued rights, there would be virtually nobody left to pay their big salaries.

Oh what, you thought it was only those Leftist (wink-wink) groups that paid out big salaries to help do the bidding for the Government? Ha!

If you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m pretty much completely fed up with the country and the world in general. I’m fed up with morons who thrive on their own efforts to hang themselves, to whittle away at their own existence, incapable of thinking beyond the end of their modeled noses. Soon Artificial Intelligence will tell them when to wipe when they are finished…you know what.

There are zero reasons to place an ounce of trust in any man-made government…ZERO, ZERO, ZERO. And yet, it’s exactly what you do. I just don’t understand.

But forget about what I say and write. You know better than I do. You have come to love and trust your servitude. Now live with it. Don’t look for me there.

Someone one day asked me what I had to fear because I supported the Second Amendment. I told them they had it all wrong (which is typical). I fear nothing. I have no reason to fear anything. “For the Lord is my Shepherd. I shall not want….”

It’s not so much about my love affair with a gun or guns. I worship but only the True Yahweh who gave me a long time ago, real liberty, real freedom, and real rights. For now, I have to live in this world and as long as I do, I will do what I can to expose the wrongs, the fraud, the corruption, the evil, the Satanic, and protect those rights given to me by my Creator.

If my words have offended you that’s too bad. I would rather that you woke up than went down with the ship you are on.

None of us can protect our rights when we work so hard to give them all away.

I just don’t get it.

The Left’s Hatred and Ignorance

It should be obvious, but is not, that the Left hates everything that somebody tells them to hate.

As in the case of the staged Parkland, Florida school shooting, instead of addressing the immoral, decadent, sadistic, nasty, hate-filled, rotten, perverse, lifestyles they so much are in love with, the Left chooses to attack a person’s right, their choice, in how they can defend themselves. It appears with each passing fake attack and with each passing programmed response by the Left (did you catch the “programmed?”) more and more people will need more than ever before the right to keep and bear arms if they so choose.

Their hatred is obvious! Perhaps not so obvious, at least to them anyway, is their ignorance of what they do. This ignorance is not just found in the case of hating on guns and anyone who has or supports owning a gun. The Left and Right (I see and hear it every day) demand that “something is done about that.”

One recent example might be that NFL football players chose to kneel during the playing of the national anthem. Whether you agreed or not shouldn’t matter when it comes to protecting a right. One can argue if the NFL, the teams, or the Players Union had any authority over the players to prohibit such action. Regardless, everywhere I went all I heard was that those caught kneeling should be thrown out of the NFL…or something worse.

I asked one man if that really is what he wanted and in his anger, he answered, “YES!” I attempted to explain that sometimes protecting a right places us in uncomfortable situations and that demanding a person’s right be taken away from them because they did something wrong, will, eventually come back and bite you on the rear end – that is when you discover one day your right to voice or demonstrate your disapproval or approval of something that holds meaning to you is gone. Think before you react, is now void of the American society of brainwashed automatons.

One of the reasons I believe the events at Parkland, Florida were staged is because of how the fallout from the event has taken place so well scripted. It reminds me terribly of the Trayvon Martin sham.

Almost from the first fake news report, demands, real or planned, began calling for an outlawing of any lawmaker or wannabe lawmaker’s right to accept legal money from the NRA. Yes, the anger and hatred is there, all wrapped up in a nice little package as has been planned out, but do any of these people understand what they are asking? I don’t think so!

It is unconstitutional, or at least there are court cases that ruled that it was illegal to punish one group of people more harshly than another. If that holds no meaning to the criers of idiocy, consider the long-term effects of getting such a law passed.

Don’t get me wrong. I think ALL money that flows through political channels should be stopped…completely. As the saying goes, “Power corrupts; Absolute Power corrupts absolutely.” Money equals power and history has proven that when there is money involved there is corruption.

In one’s anger and hatred, especially in this case where it is not guns that are the culprit but the perverted and insane people of this nation and world that have caused people to resolve issues by killing people and sometimes killing masses of people, their programmed response has been to attack guns and all establishments that present themselves as being pro-gun. In this case, we are talking about the NRA.

These insane, emotional zombie-bots, actually are running around telling anyone they see that the NRA is responsible for the deaths of people in Parkland, Florida or anywhere that guns have been used to kill people. They don’t do this for any other kind of action that results in death. Why just guns?

In the Left’s attack on the NRA, they are demanding that nobody is allowed to accept money from the NRA. As I pointed out, so far, this will not stand up in the Courts. But consider for a moment the insanity of the demand. You can’t tell me that most everyone doesn’t have a pet project that they want to be supported with money. What are these same people going to do with there is no funding available for things like fighting cancer, introducing wolves, support of women’s rights, support of equal rights, etc. etc.?

These non-thinking clowns can’t see that their demand opens the door for all entities, whether the NRA or the CBD, WWP, HSUS, PETA, for them to lose any and all support for political purposes.

Such emotions as anger and hate prevent people from thinking rationally. When you combine that with the propagandizing that has gone on for so long now, mixed in with some George Soros money to perpetuate the anger and hatred, and not only will we continue to see the hatred and ignorance on display, it will only get worse.

It’s all quite sad.

And I must finish by adding…

DON’T GO LOOK!

Has Governor LePage Flip-Flopped Or Not on Background Checks

It seems that my article of a few days ago about how Maine’s Governor Paul LePage advocating for stricter gun control through background checks, is but a part of a greater stir in Maine about the governor’s OpEd.

Centrist Lance Dutson, a Susan Collins supporter, presented his own OpEd disparaging “hardcore gun rights advocates” for seeing some of the same things I saw when I read the governor’s piece.

If you take the time to read through the comments from readers, it might become clear, but I doubt it, that, like just about everything in America today, it’s a Left/Right issue. Comprehending written words is a lost art, replaced with ideology and political rhetoric parroted by those choosing a side absent independent thought.

I don’t necessarily intend to be cruel, but I am at a loss for how to explain the truth honestly and accurately.

From the comments section, some attempt to ridicule Dutson because he is a Susan Collins supporter and they believe him to be a Centrist, i.e. a supporter of the RINO (Republican in name only) faction. Others claim that Dutson has failed to comprehend LePage’s historic position and that his recent commentary on background checks is but reinforcing the same belief he has carried throughout his political career.

What was clear to me was that Dutson has an aversion to anyone with a strong support of the Second Amendment. I wonder if he has the same aversion toward those who support the other articles of the Bill of Rights?

Even ignoring the governor’s past, what he wrote clearly states that he supports tighter controls on background checks. When he extolled the need for more workers to the do the checks, more money to pay for those checks as well as finding those who slipped through the cracks of the system, no matter how you slice it, he is supporting more stringent government intervention in order to further decay the Second Amendment…..PERIOD! It is childish and ignorant to feign support for LePage, or anybody for that matter, simply because he’s on your “side.”

Those who support the NRA, as Governor LePage has done during his political career, unknowingly support tighter controls on gun ownership. Willful blindness prevents them from seeing that the NRA, a strong advocate for government control over background checks, along with other “reasonable” measures to destroy the Second Amendment, is not the pure advocate for the right to keep and bear arms some believe them to be. For decades I have listened to the “True Believers” of the NRA state that the organization is the best and strongest supporter of the Second Amendment and therefore we should give them our money and our lives. No thanks! This might be akin to desiring to be hung with a new rope instead of the old one.

Until such time as people can (and they never will) lose the Left/Right false paradigm and make decisions based on independent thought, nothing will change. The Left will argue with the Right, the Right with the Left and, as we see in the comment section of this article, each side will argue among themselves, all the while unknowingly advocating for their own demise….and liking it too, I might add.

Read LePage’s words. Understand what those words mean. (Either the Governor understands what he wrote and politically advocates stricter gun control or he’s ignorant of the meaning of the words he chose to use.) Forget he’s who he is. If you support the Second Amendment then support it regardless of political loyalties and false promises.

NRA To Washington Post: You Do More To Damage The Country With Your Keyboards Than Our Members Ever Have With Their Guns

*Editor’s Note* – SAY WHAT??? I must be tired this morning.

The media is a better option since they sin in ways great and small every day and everyone on the right has their own list of grievances about them. And the NRA’s base is decidedly right-wing: Per a recent Pew survey, 77 percent are either Republican or lean Republican, making them prime targets for an anti-journo message. For the moment, Trump’s running for reelection a la the old Bush 41 joke, “Annoy the media, vote Republican.” This is the gun-rights version of that. Annoy the media, support the NRA.<<<Read More>>>

NRA Magazine’s July Cover Girl Is Project 21 Co-Chairman Stacy Washington

Press Release from the National Center for Public Policy Research:

Black Conservative Radio Host in the Spotlight After Her Pro-2ndAmendment Commentary Resulted in Column Suspension

St. Louis, MO / Washington, DC – Stacy Washington, the co-chairman of the National Center for Public Policy Research’s Project 21 black leadership network, is the author and face of the cover story in the July issue of the National Rifle Association’s America’s 1stFreedom magazine.  In the article, Washington recounts the controversy surrounding her pro-gun commentary in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, why she broke off her relationship with the newspaper and how bias threatens the future of the media industry.

“I’m so excited to have written a number of columns for NRA’s America’s 1st Freedom website and now the magazine,” said Washington.  “It’s an opportunity that might never have come to fruition without my column’s suspension by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.  But moving on has been bittersweet, with so many readers sending cards and emails that shared how much they miss my writing.”

Washington was recently selected to help guide Project 21, which promotes the diversity of political opinion within the black community, as one of its co-chairmen.  She also hosts the weekday “Stacy of the Right” talk radio program on WGNU-St. Louis that is syndicated by the Urban Family Talk network.

Washington began as a freelance contributor with the Post-Dispatch last November.  She was suspended on April 28 for a column on guns that her editor complained did not highlight her past affiliation with the NRA.  While she had worked on media programs and projects with the NRA in the past, Washington says  she was never paid and that the opinions in the disputed column were her own.  The column, which criticized other Missouri newspapers for commentaries speculating that gun owners favored guns over child safety and asked readers to compare the NRA to the ISIS terrorist network, was reviewed by the Post-Dispatch staff before publication. She subsequently broke off her freelance relationship with the newspaper.

 In her America’s 1st Freedom article, Washington writes  about the controversy:

In the media furor surrounding this story, my original call has been almost lost – that [Missourian columnist George] Kennedy was permitted to malign the NRA and its membership, and retains the opportunity to do so since he has received no reprimand for his awful and baseless comparison. He will never be held to account or asked to prove that NRA members dismember, set on fire or otherwise terrorize politicians – or anyone else, for that matter. . 

My column was factual: It called out media bias and asked for introspection in media outlets for the sake of preserving printed newspapers. The irony of having my column suspended – under the guise of being a paid advocate for the NRA – for writing that is unjustified nonsense, which is what prompted me to terminate the contract with the Post-Dispatch. The distraction that has ensued over who pays me and why has served its purpose for those at the top of the food chain in the newspaper industry: No one is discussing their failure to remain neutral. Consequently, circulation numbers will continue to tumble.

To book an interview with Stacy Washington, contact Judy Kent at (703) 759-7476.
