WASHINGTON – The National Rifle Association said Friday that it has filed for bankruptcy in U.S. court as part of a larger restructuring plan aimed at moving to Texas after New York state had sought the organization’s dissolution for allegedly misappropriating funds. The gun-rights advocacy group said it would restructure as a Texas nonprofit to exit from what it described as “a corrupt political and regulatory environment in New York,” where it is currently registered. “The plan can be summed up quite simply: We are DUMPING New York, and we are pursuing plans to reincorporate the NRA in Texas,”

I joined the NRA years ago. Then the phone calls... and the unsolicited DVD's that, if not sent back, would incur a bill. Still a member, but will not renew.

4, I did sign up for ONE set of DVD's and started sending them back. A few months later, another series started showing up out of nowhere. That, and getting at least 2 phone calls per week looking for more money.

I'm a life member so cannot expire, but I dont contribute anymore. I'm not donating to Wayne LaPierres $20,000 annual suit allowance when I dont even have a $20,000 house allowance. I'm not paying for their 5 star hotels when I stay in flea bags, and I dont want to buy their fancy scotch when I drink rotgut moonshine. They should stop with the high life and get back to protecting gun rights.

#4: 10/15/20 years ago it was common practice by the NRA. In that time frame, I recieved the same DVD twice about 6 months apart stating that I could either send them back or pay for them. I ignored each mailing, gave one to my son and still have the other. The NRA has seriously gone downhill over the last 20+ years with the top officials making millions/year in pay/benefits and KickBack Payments from venders such as Skimming from fees paid to Convention Centers for their Annual Conventions. They also got KickBacks from the companies they used for FundRaising operations.

I’ve been a member for perhaps 20+ years, (time flies) and renew every few years for myself and son. I never get anything but the monthly magazine. I do notice that everybody and their brother is asking me to sign up for a subscription for their invaluable publication. Other than an occasional voluntary modest contribution to Lucianne, no way.

I was a member for years. The first thing you would receive after joining was a renewal notice. The money they wasted trying to scam their members might have saved them a bankruptcy. LaPierre's luxury lifestyle drove me to GOA. Time will tell if that's the smart play.

I used to faithfully renew my membership annually. But then it got to where it seemed like they were in a 24/7 fundraising campaign. Everything was urgent that we act now! Then it hit the news that the management was living high off the hog on our contributions and I haven't sent them another cent. I won't even consider it until LaPierre is gone. As far as "moving to Texas" goes, they are just using our courts to declare bankruptcy and reorganize here. It's paperwork. I don't anticipate seeing any of those fat-cats in my neck of the woods any time soon. Nor do I want to.

I joined the NRA many years ago, and became a life member about ten years ago. NRA training materials and certifications are recognized and respected by local authorities around the US. I know retired individuals who subsidize their income as certified NRA instructors. The NRA was conceived by Union officers in NY after the civil war to address deficiencies observed in Union marksmanship during the war. Given what NY has turned into lately, there is a rush of people and companies moving out, not just the NRA.

LaPierre has been caught shoveling NRA money out for his personal benefit, and has ensured, via rule changes that he personally runs everything since the early 1990s or so. He HAS been an effective bulwark of gun rights, and I am an absolute personal witness to that. I worked closely and personally for about a year with an excellent, skilled NRA-funded lobbyist in KS when we were getting our CCW bill passed. We amateurs couldn't be on site in the legislature every single day, talking to people, finding out what was happening....but the NRA-funded lobbyist working for/with us could be. His work was very important. That said, LaPierre should be gone, if we can unwind his tentacles from the organization. I think that much money that could have been more productively used went to LaPierre's lavish ......everything. I was personal friends with Neal Knox, one of the NRA folks who led the NRA revolt in Cincinnati in 1977, and know several other NRA board members over the year personally as friends, too. Unfortunately, by the 1990 era, LaPierre had worked into a position of power. I have heard for decades of LaPierre consolidating power, and forcing out any who asked for audits, etc. I very much like what the NRA has done, and am a Life Member, but LaPierre needs to go, we need a very strong leader now that the government will be working to destroy the NRA and take our guns.

With the second bogus impeachment in the books, the Washington Post has finally seen fit to admit that President Trump did not incite the storming of the U.S. Capitol on January 6 with his speech, acknowledging that it was, in fact, planned in advance. The article, published Tuesday, the day before Biden’s inauguration, declares in its headline “Self-styled militia members planned on storming the U.S. Capitol days in advance of Jan. 6 attack, court documents say” and opens with the following paragraphs. Self-styled militia members from Virginia, Ohio and other states made plans to storm the U.S. Capitol days in advance of the Jan. 6 attack, and then communicated

President Biden took the oath of office on the West Front of the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, four years after he attended the inauguration of President Trump as the outgoing vice president. Mr. Trump didn't attend Mr. Biden's inauguration, flying instead on Air Force One earlier in the day to his Florida home. The inauguration comes two weeks after supporters of Mr. Trump attacked the U.S. Capitol, which led authorities to lock down the surrounding area and close the National Mall to the crowd that traditionally gathers on Inauguration Day.

Joe Biden has signed his first slate of executive actions as president, erasing core aspects of Donald Trump’s legacy on the coronavirus pandemic, immigration, climate change, and more with the simple stroke of a pen. Following an afternoon of ceremonies that included a virtual parade through Washington, DC, and the laying of a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia, the new administration immediately got to work around 5:15pm on the East Coast, rolling out 15 executive orders and two other action items. “There's no time to start like today,” the president said from the Oval Office’s Resolute Desk.

President Joe Biden on Wednesday signed a series of executive orders on immigration, moving to preserve and fortify the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, to end the so-called “Muslim ban,” and to stop construction on the U.S.-Mexico border wall. Biden’s executive orders are in line with campaign promises that he would overturn a number of former President Donald Trump’s immigration policies on day one and come as part of a slate of 17 executive orders, memorandums and proclamations the Democrat will issue on his first day. While the Supreme Court stopped Trump from terminating DACA, Biden’s executive order directs the Secretary of Homeland Security to “take all appropriate actions

Democrats took control of the Senate on Wednesday as Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff were sworn in as Georgia’s two representatives to the upper chamber. The swearing-in, which took place hours after President Joe Biden’s inauguration, comes after the pair narrowly defeated two incumbent Republican senators, Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, in runoff elections on January 5. Vice President Kamala Harris presided over the swearing-in for both Georgia senators, as well as Democrat Alex Padilla, who will fill the open U.S. Senate seat in California created by Harris’ ascension to the vice presidency.

Donald Trump was, in my opinion, our best president since Ronald Reagan, rather easily. His achievements are impressive: the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the biggest and most successful deregulatory effort ever, improved trade deals, record low unemployment, substantial wage growth for middle-class and working-class families for the first time in decades, encouraging development of oil and gas resources, pushing back against political correctness, critical race theory, and so on. And in the end, Operation Warp Speed, lowering regulatory barriers to accelerate development of covid vaccines in record time. Trump’s foreign policy record was equally impressive:

Joe Biden paces as he dictates long portions of his speeches to aides, spinning out thoughts that quickly pile into six, seven or eight paragraphs of copy, only to later be scrapped. On the 2020 campaign trail, he’d keep groups of supporters waiting inside while he’d hole up in a black car with aides, refining lines of his prepared remarks. Revisions go up to crunch time; it isn’t uncommon for a staffer to be scurrying to the teleprompter with a flash drive just before an event is to begin. For higher-profile remarks, he’d obsessively rehearse portions until he committed them to memory

Ex-U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr said Tuesday that President Trump’s false claims that the election was stolen “precipitated the riots” at the Capitol. In his first television interview since his ouster and break from Trump, Barr blamed the violent riots on the weeks-long effort to cast doubt on President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in the November vote. “That was the thing that precipitated the riots on the Hill’,” Barr told the British ITV network.

Both have been lightning rods for conservatives since the election.

On Tuesday, as part of a restructuring of Fox’s digital operations, politics editor Chris Stirewalt was let go. Fox’s decision to call Arizona for Biden took the network’s anchors by surprise and infuriated the White House, which believed the determination was premature.
