The NY State Supreme Court dismissed NY Attorney General Letitia James’ attempt to dissolve the NRA.  Judge Joel Cohen wrote: “…the Complaint does not allege the type of public harm that is the legal linchpin for imposing the ‘corporate death penalty’…moreover, dissolving the NRA could impinge, at least indirectly, on the free speech and assembly rights of its millions of members.”

The suit against the NRA and several NRA officers will continue without the corporate death penalty.  Cohen wrote, “The Attorney General’s allegations in this case, if proven, tell a grim story of greed, self-dealing, and lax financial oversight at the highest levels of the National Rifle Association…They describe in detail a pattern of exorbitant spending and expense reimbursement for the personal benefit of senior management, along with conflicts of interest, related party transactions, cover-ups, negligence, and retaliation against dissidents and whistleblowers who dared to investigate or complain, which siphoned millions of dollars away from the NRA’s legitimate operations.

The NRA is the thousand-pound gorilla in defense of the 2nd Amendment and James and her fellow gun grabbers will do anything to weaken or destroy the NRA, for political purposes.

There is no word if James will appeal the judge’s decision.

Joe Biden is rewriting the “public charge” regulations on immigration to let very poor illegal aliens get both welfare and citizenship. The replacement rule will help provide green cards and citizenship to poor illegal and legal aliens, including many who are unable or unwilling to support themselves. 

If you think your vote doesn’t count now, wait until an illegal alien turned U.S. citizen can vote.  If the Democrats can’t win elections with current voters, they want to create a whole new group of voters, who have no connection to the USA, other than receiving welfare.  Guess how they will vote to use your tax dollars?

When Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced he would use the Emergency Act declaration to target the financial support systems of the people supporting the “Trucker Protest”, he undermined the Canadian banking system, which led to massive withdrawals of cash from banks.  He also derailed, at least temporarily, the plans of the World Economic Forum to create a “Digital ID” in Canada.

Trudeau showed how easy it is for government to seize bank accounts, credit cards, etc. and cut you off from money (without due process). He also led people to realize that the government could financially destroy you -more efficiently - with a Digital ID in place.

Proponents of digital ID justify it by saying it can assist governments to better plan for your needs. (Big Brother will take care of you.)  Governments could analyze your “needs” – as it defines those needs – in order to meet those needs. (From each according to his ability and to each according to his needs.)  Governments could build profiles on the social, political, and economic behaviors of people.

Of course, the same information could also be used for political manipulation, stifling of expression, exclusion of dissenters, and other similar motives.  Digital ID programs would create databases that could easily destroy the right to privacy. (You must have heard about the illegal misuse of NSA data in the Russian hoax.  Misuse that is not being prosecuted.  Digital ID puts that on steroids.) 

Remember Canada when the Digital ID is proposed in America.

Some good news…sorta.

Under the gun ownership prohibitions in the National Firearms Act, an AOW is a catch-all definition for “any weapon or device capable of being concealed on the person and from which a shot can be discharged through the energy of an explosive.

Representative Chip Roy (R-Texas) introduced a bill called the “No Backdoor Gun Control Act” in the U.S. House of Representatives that would remove the “any other weapons” (AOW) definition of a firearm.

Rep. Roy said, “Bearing arms in self-defense is a human right. It is evident from the ATF’s behavior that, under Joe Biden’s Department of Justice, the agency is hellbent on attacking the Second Amendment through every means at its disposal”.  (‘Say it aint so, Joe.  Say it aint so’!)  “The NFA’s ‘Any Other Weapon’ provision would still allow an anti-gun administration to use the ATF to unilaterally regulate these firearms, and, more importantly, target their owners. The No Backdoor Gun Control Act would close this notable loophole and help protect law-abiding gun owners.”

In the current gun grabbing dominated Washington, there is almost no chance of this passing but it is nice to see the Republicans go on the offensive for a change.

The Biden Administration and an animal-rights group (the Center for Biological Diversity) have announced settlement discussions over a lawsuit that could revoke hunting opportunities on nearly 100 National Wildlife Refuges, nationwide. The lawsuit alleges that hunting on refuges threatens endangered species due to: hunters trampling critical habitat; lead poisoning as a result of spent ammunition; and because grizzly bears are mistakenly shot by hunters believing them to be black bears or in self-defense.

Since an antigun group is negotiating with the antigun Biden Administration, this is like two wolves and a sheep holding a majority-rules vote on what to have for dinner.
