“On the Holmes Front,” with Frank Holmes
If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that the Democratic Party will do anything to get power.
Self-serving liberals will exploit public health threats to destroy President Donald Trump’s prosperous economy, incite angry mobs that attack police officers, and slap charges against suburban couples who exercise their Second Amendment right to defend themselves.

They’ve been incredibly successful at weaving their web over every sector of society. Anti-American liberals control the news media, Hollywood, universities and schools, Wall Street, even professional sports.
There are only a few segments of American life they don’t totally dominate: talk radio, churches, and gun owners.
Now, Democrats are showing just how far they’re willing to go: They’re trying to shut down the right of gun owners to protect themselves—and the Constitution—on a national level.
Two left-wing government officials are suing to close down the most effective gun rights organization in the United States, the National Rifle Association.
On Thursday, New York Attorney General Letitia James filed a lawsuit to disband the NRA—which is based in New York State—as a nonprofit organization.
James charged four NRA leaders with misspending $64 million over the last three years on trips and meals she considers excessive.

At a press conference, James said she didn’t want to reform the Second Amendment group or demand it change one or two of its practices. In her words, her office wants to “to dissolve the organization in its entirety.”

The @NRA is fraught with fraud and abuse.
No organization is above the law.

On the same day, District of Columbia Attorney General Karl A. Racine filed legal briefs against the NRA Foundation, an allied but separate 501(c)3 that is registered in Washington, D.C. He basically said its crime is loaning money to the NRA, and he wants them to stop.

The simultaneous timing of the lawsuits on August 6 is about as coincidental as al-Qaida’s bombing of U.S. Embassies in Tanzania and Kenya on August 7, 1998.
“You could have set your watch by it: the investigation was going to reach its crescendo as we move into the 2020 election cycle,” NRA president Carolyn Meadows told Politico.
Not only are the liberal attorneys trying to shut down the NRA, they say they’re doing it to benefit its members!
James claimed the NRA leadership’s “waste and loss of millions in assets” had “contributed to the NRA reaching its current deteriorated financial state” and “undermine(d) its own mission.”
I’m sure James stays awake at night crying crocodile tears over the NRA losing money.
Meanwhile, in D.C., Racine said he’s just trying to make sure donors to the NRA Fund have their money used for its purpose.

But that’s ridiculous.
“It’s hard to overstate how Third World this lawsuit is,” Tucker Carlson said on Fox News Thursday night.
The number bothering the nation’s gun-grabbers isn’t $64 million in alleged “fraud.”
It’s $55 million—that’s how much the NRA spent in 2016 to elect Donald Trump. “If you wanted to short circuit Republicans in November’s election, you would go after the NRA,” Carlson said. NRA insiders say they’re ready to spend $70 million in 2020 to keep him in office, against Joe Biden—who promised to put Beto O’Rourke in charge of rounding up rifles. No wonder the NRA is in liberals’ crosshairs.
It’s 5.5 million—that’s the number of law-abiding gun owners who support the NRA with their regular dues. They bought guns to hunt, to collect, or to defend their families, and they don’t want the government leaving them defenseless in the face of radical left-wing riots.
And it’s 2—that is, the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which guarantees the right to keep and bear arms. A socialist government can only come to power if it strips its citizens of the right to fight back—just look at the socialist gun control policies of Joe Stalin, Adolf Hitler, Mao Zedong, or Hugo Chavez.
The NRA called James’ political stunt a “baseless premeditated attack on our organization and the Second Amendment freedoms it fights to defend.”

The Left will do anything to crush that freedom and drive everyone who believes in it out of their state.
This lawsuit comes six years after Gov. Andrew Cuomo said that “conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon,” and oppose gay marriage, “have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.”
They want conservatives out of their state by any means necessary—just ask Mark and Patricia McCloskey of St. Louis.
Getting rid of the Second Amendment is just one step away from getting rid of all the voters who stand in their way.
