As a college level class, we came across this site which has been studying the relationship between the American dream, graffiti and rebellion. 

For us, the American dream represents an opportunity for people to live freely, in democracy and equality; but it also concerns many fights, like the labour struggles of the New Deal era and the Civil Rights and Women’s Rights movements. 

People who are rebelling and fighting want the same rights as the ones promoted by the American dream.  Therefore, the American dream, to us, is the set of American ideals that must lead to a better life. It aims at making inequalities between all people disappear. 

However, the American dream is fading today because some people take everything while others cannot earn a living wage. That’s why people have to remember the first labour struggles and human rights movements because like these men and women, we must fight and protest to achieve the American dream.    If we don’t do it, the situation will never change and the American dream will disappear.

On the other hand there are those in positions of power who also take from those least capable of giving for their peers and through the chicanery of politics literally  destroy dreams —  I write about these scumbags — pull no punches — get threatened — and I am prepared — 

 

THE PRELUDE 

Let me be perfectly clear, I am an American, born in the great State of Brooklyn NY — OK Brooklyn is a county,  not a state but “ Brooklyn is a state of mind in language and attitude" —  Especially when you came from Crown Heights, and half your friends are either Jewish or Italian.  The other half were Irish or Puerto Rican.  

Before Vietnam your block you lived on, well it  was your turf and territory, few strangers were welcomed — Not officially it was like having a gang but we protected each other.

My Jewish peoples have no luck, God tests us to see if we have the right metal - If Moses had turned left instead of right int the desert we would have the oil rights —   First we had the Egyptians,  then the NAZI’s, and the Holocaust, followed by the Arabs of today, the Hamas, the Hezbollah, Palestinians and White Supremacist's and other Anti-Semites — 

My lineage peoples came from Odessa, UKRAINE which was part of Russia at that time, many dying to get to the United States.  Banned by the British, many dying trying to get to Israel, the new state — had to settle deported to Australia.

Growing up in Brooklyn, I know what class and religious based warfare, hatred and anti-semite expressions are like, I have felt them, once as a kid coming home from baseball practice, two kids from another neighborhood tried to confront me with their fists, calling me a “ Kike, and Jew Bastard”.  Back almost sixty five years ago —  "We shall never forget”, the phrase adopted by Presidents now is ingrained in our DNA — 

Stupid, they were very stupid, they did-not see the Louisville Slugger I was carrying  like a rifle on my back with a shoelace sling —  I dropped the backpack with the balls and gloves, they went for it,  as he was closer I dropped down and hit a home run — on his knee’s — Batting Practice time — I'll spare the gory details,  two home runs n their knees, two foul tips on their two elbows,  then came the crying and, I put the bat on his neck on the ground and lightly stepped on it.   The next time you eon’t ever wake up —   They never bothered us again —

Today, with all the hatred and carnage,  I carry weapons and am studying techniques of KRAV MAGA classes adding to what I already know but at my age a gun or knife is safer for me,  and I am not afraid and well trained to use either — arthritis and all.  Both strong side and weak side fingers are OK.

Being in America and getting a letter from the draft board, I quickly took the Air force opportunity instead of pounding the ground—   which changed later on— I spent my time as a good contractor —  and pounded ground  — in a very different way.

THE INTRODUCTION

I'm an American, third generation.  I served my country in the Military as a Soldier and after as an Independent Contractor — I was a Shooting Sports Enthusiast involved in a group of competitive and recreational sporting activities involving proficiency tests of accuracy, precision and speed in shooting — the art of using ranged weapons, mainly man-portable guns(firearms and airguns, in forms such as handguns, rifles and shotguns. 

Shooting sports can be categorized by equipment, shooting distances, targetstime limits and degrees of athleticism involved. Shooting sports may involve both team and individual competition, and team performance is usually assessed by summing the scores of the individual team members.  I usually came in top 20% of a hundred shooters— 

A SUPPORTER OF THE NRA

I SUPPORT THE SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS —  With  the provision that those rights have rules and are subject to revision  if conditions warrant change.   That is in the law as provided by the Constitution.  The false expression used by the liars is that gun ownership is a so-called “ God Given Right “  

God has nothing to do with this.  Especially to own a Weapon of War “.
This is  is an invalid statement that encourages the hate paranoiac BS rhetoric —  spread by brain-washed morons who know little about Constitutional law and twist things for their cause and manage to find simple minded people who we have classified as the HERD
 HEATHENS ENGAGED in RADICAL DESTRUCTION

We did the research, we checked, the phrase “ God-Given”  and neither God, nor Jesus, Moses, Muhammed or Donald T-RUMP,  the self proclaimed false Messiah and Murderer does not sell guns, nor own a gun shop.  

Our Lord doesn’t need a gun, he has plagues, floods, illnesses, and other weapons when needed such as “ Global Warming" which is currently wrecking havoc throughout the world —  Last weapon used was the flooding for forty days and nights — 

That was in conjunction with Mother Nature who helped him and she said at least this we don’t waste water  this time —  

And with a generous  “ Thank you from Lucifer Mestopheles, Lord of The Basement”,  who said, “ Good Job, The hotter the better”.

THE LIARS , GRIFTERS, AND SCUMBAGS 

Truth Is Not A virtue Of The NRA —   They have chosen  a path of behavior not warranted by need and flavored with lies, falsehoods and mis-truths flourishing as a scam and dealing in such a way that people are dying for no reason simply because of ignorance, fear motivation, lies, and motivated by greed while creating a supersaturation of war weaponry to a public where we have more guns than people and the mass percentage unchecked and untrained, and too many are unstable — the perfect storm and 240 MASS MURDERS  by July is not a tolerable situation and changes have to be made or we will lose the country internally. 

You want war games, you self-elected bravado bull-sh*ting hero's, go to the Ukraine and do some real good — we’ll see what your metal is made of — attacking fellow Americans whom you know would not shoot you, was the most cowardly act of stupidity, false bravado, solely by cowardly scumbags. Way too lenient some should be hung a traitors , they were not patriots — 

You showed your colors and your cowardice - nine so far have died, many have permanent damage 132 had hospital treatment

I was a Republican  for forty years and a NRA Gold member.   But I left the NRA when I learned the truth about its corrupt scumbag leadership and where the money was going and being used for —  And I intend to bring whatever I have learned naming names and scams they are involved in  —  and I intend to expose them — 


THE DAWN CAME AND I SAW THE LIGHT

Younger, I was a gun lover, competitive shooter,  and today a gun is my protection — It Began 20 Years Ago When The Children Started Dying —  In a materialistic world, next to my MAC computers,  needed because doing PC—  IT work I hated Microsoft —   I write as a  journalist, and photographer word hacker,  American consumerist, and I jokingly value my personal defense weapons the next favorite thing.  Many who are critics of politics, theology and food make an honest effort to protect them selves. We are sometimes targets —   Many Journalist friends have been killed bringing  you the stories in places you would not like to be — 

Almost 80, I recently sold my offensive mostly competitive, “ tricked out"  and offensive heavy toys my 308, 223, and weapons since I am retired.   For defensive use now  I have a few small discreet personal arms, .40 and a .380  when on the road.  Which starts ten feet from my front door to the elevator.  But I’ll rely on my Combat shotgun for greater personal protection if I run into a situation.  

My own home built custom Remington Military Frame 1187 auto with 10 round capacity loaded with slugs and high intensity custom built and loaded Tungsten Number fours. It will destroy things — almost any thing, the last four being 3inch slugs—

When you write about Politics, Theology Scams on TV, Food Corporations and Bad Food as a critic, in my dreams, “  I have a vision of a hatchet crazed chef mad because his Chicken Cordon Bleu tasted like KFC on steroids, and coming at me because I reported it as such” . 

And being Jewish and having what the holocaust did to my family affiliation with it, And always a chance for a nut-case starved wannabe supporting anti-semitic causes or white supremacy threatening me,  if so, “ Let me help you get to Jesus sooner a lot sooner and end your personal misery”. 

Some of the products I write about as a Religious Consumer Writer might just warrant protection too.  More people are dead because of religious beliefs than for any other reason.

Those believers who send checks for thousands of dollars to CERTIFIED PRAYER REQUESTER on TV have got to be the dumbest marks and suckers on the planet —  praying, titheing, donating, and healings of cancer, leukemia, heart attacks, strokes, or a deadly ingrown toenail could easily be gone if it were true. But it is not — please call me when you have a burning bush in you living room and i will believe God returned your call. 

Oh, better tell your Mom not to send them money.  If you had the guts to look further some of those people got paid for fake endorsement.  T-Rump wrote giant 100,000 dollar checks to charity for photo-ops but never did the real check ever get there —  Con is a Con is a Con —  He kept all of your donations to his return — gone, gone, gone as the song goes --

POLITICIANS ARE ALL ABOUT THE NRA BIG  LIES

The NRA didn’t do too bad either with 7,000,000 members at 30.00 plus per year they sucker each year plus donations from corporate gun manufacturers. There are better uses for these funds, real people in need.  But funds are dropping off as members find the lies within. Not true anymore, they are busted.  

The cycle is simple, dues money goes to NRA — But very little is really spent, their programs are bullsh*t and underfunded — It’s spent on product for the lucky eighteen Gun CEO’S for sales — the other members of the board — totaling 76  stays amongst the lobby members — Everyone getting rich and singing “ Kumbaya” — 

The millions collected is given to politicians to keep them re-elected — 31 million went to T-RUMP team-mates —  and Congress Members for protection — to keep the operation going and Wayne La Pierre living a life style a feudal king didn’t have —  

Just call it what it is protection money —  And the lies about the 2nd Amendment go unchecked —  The Gun Lobby steps in for disbursement, and the gun dealer kick back per gun funds to the NRA  —  Anything the NRA purchases or funds has to go through the eighteen  members who are gun accessories manufacturers for sale to their members and commissions are paid 

Those eighteen are the elite of the NRA and Wayne La Pierre, the ultimate scumbags best buds — But some seeing the writing on the wall and are deserting the ship —   More rats will go — 


LOVED COMPETITION, MY GUNS AND MY FELLOW COMPETITORS

I spent years and lots of dollars as a dedicated Competitive shooter trying earning points, not kills, but for the sport of it.  The combat defense side, rifle and some simple sniper training was provided by my affiliation with the Armed Services, and well enhanced by IPSIC, and body guard  work courses and as a certified range officer.  

I loaded my own ammunition, in Dillon loaders like many competitors, and so forth.   I was fully emerged and the NRA was in a leadership role at one time in the shooting sports, not anymore.  I really liked the sporting clays and skeet shooting.  

Found my self with a Beretta over and under — and a slightly different class of people — Even met the son of Beretta and the Mandrel sisters,  great singers, and greater shooters,

I retired from competition some years ago, my age and my  dentist told me I’ll need a new cheek if I kept up with the shotgun.  The long rifle and the shotgun were edging me into a condition called TMJ by displacing the cheekbones my right side.  He put it frankly,  “ Stop now or surgery and you’ll definitely stop then. I chose the former .

I still use my handguns and qualify, retrain once a month at the range with Glocks, Ruger . 

My armament was never used for harm, simply sport and protection.  War was different.  They gave us guns, but being aircrew at times I liked the big stuff,  500 lb. bombs and aircraft with nuclear capacity and for what they were intended.   I worked on charity events for the women’s sporting foundation, potentially meeting some of the younger shooters priming for the Olympics.

I shot sporting clays with the bear, General Norman Schwartzkoph, one hell of a shooter.  I met with the Beretta family, even got a hat and borrowed a 20,000 dollar shotgun and fired iconic greatness on one stage.  I was ready to sell the house and get one.   


CHALLENGES, GREAT SOLDIERS,  AND GREAT LADIES MADE THE GAME —  Then I was introduced to Louise Mandrell, an American country music singer.  She is the younger sister of fellow country singer Barbara Mandrell, and older sister of actress Irlene Mandrell. 

Louise had a successful singing career in country music from the 1970s, with a string of hits all during the 1980s.  She is an extremely good clays shooter in the top ranks.   Top drawer.  

What a wonderful trio of beautiful ladies each a pretty as a button, and I was gaga over Irlene because she played drums, could do a set with anyone,  I took drum lessons till the neighbors threatened to kill me and my parents.

Irlene Mandrell is an accomplished hunter. She has hunted North America, Mexico, South America and Africa. She has killed several animals that qualify for the SCI Record Book. She is very competitive and a race car driver. 
She is an active member of Quail Unlimited, Buckmasters, the NRA, Safari Club International, National Wild Turkey Federation, Sportsman Against Hunger, the National Whitetail Deer Education Foundation, Pegasus, Special Olympics, American Heart Association,  and Easter Seals, Wish Upon A Star and the Boy Scouts. The Irlene Mandrell Celebrity Shoot donate with these causes.

One picture here is significant, the guy in the grey shirt shooting an M-16 Shorty with picatinny rails, forward assist, small scope, collapse stock is me.   

The significance is that it was taken by my wife 35+ years ago when the shorty or correctly designated for testing the M-4  carbine prototype was being field tested, a privilege and had not been issued as yet.   

Actually the AIR FORCE got the first issuance as they were still shooting WWII M-1 JUNGLE CARBINES — and other relics with a round identical in .30 caliber but looking more like a .357.  Ancient but popular after the big war and the AIR  FORCE was spending its dollars in a strategic cold war with better planes.  But their ground protection needed upgrades.



THE NRA WENT POLITICALLY INCORRECT

I lost it, chest pains and all,  when I saw what happened to those children.  My other companion has kids in that school range, and middle to high school, and thinking it can’t get worse, I was wrong.   It keeps happening, I know the logic, big impact, soft target and do nothing by the GOP and the NRA.  Over and over again— 

Now adding more to the carnage enough is enough.  It is a time for action not words, it has turned me against the lies and the politicians bought off by the gun lobby.

Voters don’t vet who they vote for  — and the result is chaos - most voting decisions are made in the curtained voter both usually based on a previous decision by what TV Channel you watch or name recognition.  This is wrong.  Many votes are simply unthought of, unchallenged, unqualified and unsupported, you pick a name and lets see what happens. Lately seven, maybe eight of ten are bad choices.

And year after year, those same politicians will do nothing, respond to nothing, repair nothing, but cheerfully accept very large   “ Donations from groups ¨   of  semi-humans with small caliber brains that fuel the gun lobby.

Mainly the National Rifle Association with the complete knowledge of the usual propaganda and mis-truths they are stupid enough to believe. The Punt gun was the only gun the NRA ever banned, we believe it injured more shooters than flocks of ducks or fowl and crippled many.  Quotas and numbers of birds harvested came into being and that ended that.  The only other usage would be in Godzilla movies.  To take out “ Mothra” .

Screen Shot 2022-07-23 at 9.34.25 AM


I dream often of lining up selected Senators who vote down gun bills and using the Punt gun on them — the rest of them are nothing but chickensh*t  cowards just enjoying voting no,  when McConnell tells them to vote no,  and they get re-elected with the fraud money.   SCUMBAGS!   

Though a big majority of  NRA members voted for more stringent gun controls, it went unheard by the NRA hierarchy.  They did what they wanted not the members wishes.   In any other industry this would be called “ Fraud or Bribery”.  In other countries, they might get shot.   But this not the whole or real picture.    This is wrong and it has gone on too long.  The NRA recently stands for “ Nothing Real America” and has become in a sense its own militia.



THE NRA KILLING FIELDS

NRA IN TRUTH - 40 YEARS 


POINTS OF LIGHT —  

  • In 2022 from the beginning of the year to JULY — We have had 242 Mass murders in the United States.   We let this go too far and it will escalate out of control with lenient carry laws and no background checks.  We won’t need foreign jack-booted invaders to our country , we’ll be too busy killing each other.  

  • Retirement Became A Cause — When I Retired And Started Banging The Keys, Things Happened, I Stopped Believing And Started Looking for he TRUTH, and the TRUTH appeared and The TRUTH WAS Verified, Accurate and Honestly Portrayed —  
Screen Shot 2022-07-20 at 4.17.35 PM
  • The Past:  We have to start at the beginning. One of the longest scams in America has been perpetrated by the National Rifle Association, origionally a Sportsman's Club interface dedicated to the great outdoors with hunting and sport shooting.   It is nothing more than a fake charitable cash cow.

  • Today:  That's history and not what they became, they are the lobbyists for the Gun Industry, the prime folks who lie to you about the second amendment, steal your dues for their benefit,  and bribe your politicians so they don’t take your guns away.  Which till now was not a threat.  But a carefully based propoganda scheme to make millions of dollars.

  • Weapons of War  do not exist in most societies — The real truth is weapons of war have a purpose —  to kill people efficiently.   And in 2022 one particular weapon the M-16 our main battle rifle and it’s civilian counterpart The Colt sporter AR-15 now manufactured by dozens of companies and entrepreneurs which has done nothing but bring death to 230 mass murders, in the United States from January to June 1st. 2022  —  Mass murders are when the death count exceeds four people.  Hospitalized and injured are usually as many a four times the dead.  

  • The lies and mis-conceptions forecast by the NRA are criminal and unfortunately our government is bought for and sold by the NRA with millions of dollars of BRIBES from it’s coffers.  These NRA people are not patriots, they are traitors with blood on their hands.  It could very well be your kids that die next — Dump the NRA, take the money back from the politicians, try them for bribery and give the money to those families devastated by this organization who have suffered a death in their household.and its cohorts — 



The New York City  Attorney General Investigation Of The NRA  And Charges Pending That Forced The NRA To  Leave New York,  To  Avoid Prosecution And Try Bankrupsty In  Texas — They Thought A Friendlier Gun Nut State —  FUBAR — It Failed Horribly —  The JUDGE  In Texas called it Evasion — 

When Is A TAX EXEMPT Charity Not A Charity?  When It’s Not!

9/2022  In the London Review of Books,  [Google It ]  Deborah Friedell traces the past, present, and potential future of the National Rifle Association, America’s foremost pro-gun membership, political-pressure, and lobbying group. Launched by Union Army veterans after the Civil War to promote marksmanship, the group didn’t take on the political bent for which it’s now known until President Lyndon Johnson sought a national gun registry and other controls, which the group opposed. 

The T-RUMP era, ironically, has hurt the group’s bottom line, Friedell writes, as “ Members became complacent with an ally ( Fellow scumbag)  in the White House.”  The NRA has given multiple millions to keep T-RUMP around.  As The Daily Beast reported in 2018, the group reported a big decline in revenue from membership dues in 2017. 

Underpinning Friedell’s outline is the notion that the NRA does well when people feel threatened that their guns will be taken away.  To that end, Friedell writes, the group is gearing up for a fight with New York Attorney General Letitia James over executives’ use of funds, which could energize supporters.  Is the Charitable NO.  Fraud YES,  finally an accounting —

They are amongst the major donors to the goose stepping Senate and House Members of Republican Party for bribes to sustain the profitability of their fraud, based on lies and mis-directions for an elite Board of  eighteen with financial interests in the industry,  raking in millions from simple minded members who fall for their lies  and bullsh*t  — 

Little or non is spent on supporting compassion, human aid, the environment, wildlife, sportsmanship, competition, teaching and coaching, and during the crisis of COVID did little or nothing to help the benevolent charities, trying to halt the deaths of one million Americans in addition to helping stop the increase in gun crime and mass murders.  

Just enough toys, propoganda magazines, retail sale and selling events to make you think they are real,  They really are advertising support for the retailers selling the goods from some of these eighteen board or director members.  Thats how their game works.

These two characters are nothing but living greed personified led by a really sick individual, Wayne LaPiere, supported by the other sick individual Donald J “ The Corrupt King” T-RUMP who keeps and makes millions for these Board Members. They are nothing but a slush fund for the gun industry raking in millions with lies and self sustaining wealth.   And Donald gets his share, estimated at thirty-one million dollars worth.


AMERICAS TWO BEST MURDERERS AND SCUMBAGS

Screen Shot 2022-05-24 at 7.16.34 AM


Where Is Dirty Money Going? To The Twins - Donald and Wayne Both Lie, Cheat and Steal Your Money, Both are Draft Dodgers And Run Operations That Killed or Kill Innocents  


  Twenty Years Ago - Some Stories Take Time…Today Truth —   I wrote these stories and comments about the corruption on the news for decades about what I thought was the wrongdoing by the NRA.  They are a powerful lobby, we got nowhere.   I  have friends and relatives working the case, for the courts and two federal Agencies, and so I was privy to some info,  but not allowed to share.  Sources are gold but some not to be shared. The NY Attorney general won’t get laughed off and dismissed as I did.  

For many years when younger I was a strong supporter Of the NRA.  Then for many years I watched an organization I believed in go to the darkside, something that I actually promoted and spoke nice about.  At rallies and gatherings I solicited for those to take on membership and responsibilities and protect those rights in our Constitution, mainly the Second Amendment.

I humbly apologize, to those who signed up.  This is not the NRA I joined, this is a corrupt scam.  And with a few players you might know, great supporters of lies.  How could you leave out Donald T-RUMP,  or Charlton Heston in his deranged years holding up his flintlock looking not like Moses , more like the Pharaoh's son.   

I loved him as an actor, but when it came to truth, he was just as guilty as Wayne LaPierre.  Age and slight dementia might have had something to do with his endorsement, heck it was an acting job.   All the NRA leaders are actors.    Oliver North saw the light and bailed out — but thats another story  —   

The second biggest mistake I made was voting Republican and I for 48 years supported the party… Again I apologize for believing in something and promoting it  —  And for the same reasons, being lied to, being corrupt and now its obvious the NRA,  Donald T-RUMP the fake President  and the GOP are connected.  I left both, and hate the third for what he is — they are polluted, dirty and reek from cronyism, and as an investigative writer, soldier sportsman,  journalist, pilot and gun lover, the truths must come out.

An upgrade was needed, as the two came together as to the NRA becoming the lobbyist for the Gun Industry.  The truth must be brought forth and the scam exposed.  I’m still working at investigating putting updates to the truth into what I wrote in the past, frankly because nothing changed what i exposed then is true today — 

The membership is nothing but a cash cow driven by lies, falsehoods, lies and scammers and supported by ignorance of their believers. Their dues and donations are feeding the lifestyles of eighteen boars members called Directors in violation of Charitable Rules and Regulations. I have met crackheads more honest than him. 


1980 — I DID NOT LIKE THIS MAN — WORDS ( LIES) MATTER — SAME LIES TODAY--

NRA executive vice president and CEO Wayne Lapierre voiced his lies again at the Conservative Political Action Conference, or CPAC  Lapierre made the following heartwarming statements.  “ Can we protect so much with armed security, while we drop our kids off at school, that are so-called gun-free zones, that are wide-open targets for any crazy madman bent on evil to come there first?  

In every community, PTAs, teachers’ unions, local law enforcement, moms and dads – they all must come together to implement the very best strategy to harden their schools, including effective trained, armed security that will absolutely protect every innocent child in this country. 

That has to happen now.  Evil walks among us, and God help us if we do not harden our schools and protect our kids. ...

"I refuse to leave this stage until I say one more time that we must immediately harden our schools. Every day— every day, young children are being dropped off at schools that are virtually wide open, soft targets for anyone bent on mass murder.

It should not be easier for a madman to shoot up a school than a bank or a jewelry store or some Hollywood gala. Schools must be the most hardened targets in this country.


 DRAFT DODGER AND NERVOUS DISORDER  —  It was originally organized in 1871 to “ promote and encourage rifle shooting on a scientific basis” in the United States, and it seems to have succeeded; generations later, the National Rifle Association has become the United States’ most high-profile gun rights lobbying group, raking in millions for the political right wing.

The organization’s executive president and CEO is Wayne R. LaPierre, an outspoken lying devious scumbag defender of the Second Amendment and critic of all but the most minimal gun control policies.

In the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in 2012 which resulted in the deaths of more than two dozen children and adults, LaPierre famously suggested that a “ National Database of Lunatics” would do more to solve the nation’s gun violence problem than banning the assault-style weapons so often used in such crimes.

LaPierre’s repeated assertions linking gun violence with mental illness, assertions vigorously challenged by mental health professionals as a “nervous disorder”  appear to have backfired on him.

The list he talked about should of had his name at the top, at least on the Internet, supplying fodder for rumors and memes promoting the claim that he obtained a medical (4-F) draft deferment during the Vietnam War by reason of a nervous condition.  



 THE NRA’S FOUR BIGGEST LIES 

Due to space restrictions we had no room for the other three hundred lies and gaffs.
Just as we had no more room for Donalds 30,234 lies proofed ad accurate by Politico and WPS


ONE -  The Jack-Booted Foreign Soldiers On Our Soil   We have all witnessed or listened to their convoluted redundant rhetoric time after time.  The claims of  jackbooted foreign soldiers on American Soil getting ready to take over the country.  We need more guns to defend ourselves against foreign troops

TRUTH:  More like the South American and European regular troops the Army is training in counter insurgency and drug dealing the US provides that training at what is called the School of the America’s at Fort Benning, GA and has for as long as I can remember.   I have attended many military functions there. 

I have stayed in those barracks and attended many of the classes with these trainers from friendly services for my work in South America.  These are  loyal anti-drug fighters and I got to know a few and that representation LaPierre made is just another one of his biggest hate filled  lies. They are patriots trying to save their own country — 


TWO - The So-called the New World Order  —  Make believe conspiracy order framed up by Wayne La Pierre similar to the visions Donald T-RUMP gets.  Nothing but dreams, wet at best.  Had nothing to do with taking over the world by secret forces.  It has been used and around for years.  Ignorant people believe the lies and thats the real problem.  You can’t shoot people because they are naive and dumb.  

TRUTH — The term “ New World Order (NWO)”  in conspiracy theories is the hypothesis of a secretly emerging totalitarian world government. The common theme in conspiracy theories about a New World Order is that a secretive power elite with a globalist agenda is conspiring to eventually rule the world through an authoritarian world government—which will replace sovereign nation-states—and an all-encompassing propaganda whose ideology hails the establishment of the New World Order as the culmination of history’s progress

TRUTH — Actually it stems from ancient times Which had nothing to do with guns, it involved financial worldly growth of the new players in commerce and finance like the BRIC countries which are Brazil, Russia, India and China, nothing more.  been used for years corrupted only by Wayne La Pierre --

Screen Shot 2022-06-05 at 9.04.17 AM

THREE —  Those Annoying Black Helicopters —  And more claims of spotting  Black Helicopters.  Only T-RUMP had one, Playboy did have a DC-9 called the Playboy Mansion before T-Rump outdid him with a 757 —  

TRUTH:  There were no black helicopters swooping down on your back forty other than mosquito control boys which will be in abundance this year because of the ZIKA bug.  And they are not all black some are white, some red, some yellow…rumors and lies from the NRA.  

Screen Shot 2022-06-05 at 10.57.17 AM

The only two Black Helicopters  I ever saw:  One was a toy Black Bunny copter owned by Hugh Hefner and the Playboy corporation, Black with a white bunny logo.   The other was owned by an idiot —  

Who in their right mind wants a helicopter sitting on the Tarmac cooking away, and if you went down at night dusk or dawn they would never find you.  Thats T-RUMP — To bad it never happened —  


FOUR —  Those Threats they’ll Take Your Guns Away  —  The  Second Amendment Lies And Damn Truth For a Change. There is no assault on the second amendment. The unsubstantiated rhetoric “Soon they’ll be taking your guns away”.   The NRA cries that no matter what’s going on in the political world, it portends an imminent massive gun confiscation with President Obama wanting more background checks?   

This claim — prominent among gun-rights advocates — implies that the Second Amendment establishes not just a right to own guns, but a right that the government cannot legally limit.   None of our Amendment rights work this way.    "The Supreme Court has said repeatedly that no right under the Constitution is absolute," says Adam Winkler, a law professor at UCLA and the author of "Gunfight: The Battle over the Right to Bear Arms in America. “ In general, where the government has very strong reasons to restrict a right, it can.”  You cannot have a Nuclear Missile in your backyard, fire RPG’s at noisy neighbors, all fear tactics by LaPierre and his Wehrmacht Army of collaborators and stooges.


FIVE — Tell that to the 59 dead, 527 Wounded at the Massacre in Las Vegas - Bump Stocks

The Corrupted Supremely Conservative Court declined to review local laws that prohibit certain kinds of weapons like semiautomatic guns.  “We see a lot more absolutist rhetoric today than we did in the past,” Winkler says, "partly because we have over the last 40 years seen the rise of a rather extreme pro-gun movement, led by the NRA.” 

And the excuse about 2nd amendment rights and denial of service for those on federal lists such as no-fly and terrorist who might be denied a weapon or concealed carry permit don’t carry easily with me.  We can afford to affront someone once in a while, but we can’t afford another San Bernardino.  Thats a weak excuse and it’s about time a few in Congress step up since their party is turning in a bad direction anyway. 

Strange today with fewer Americans living in rural areas and hunting no longer as popular a recreational activity as it once was, far fewer Americans own sporting guns today than a generation or two ago according to data from the General Social Survey. And their numbers tell the story of a gun culture, for hunting purpose often a rifle and a shotgun has changed to a culture of mostly handguns and assault weapons. 

Less than one week ago South Dakota passed a bill allowing teachers in both primary and secondary grades to be armed with guns. The proposal for such a measure started shortly after Sandy Hook and marketing toward this goal stated popping up on various NRA supported sites.   

The good news is that there appears to be a grassroots movement against this “ grassroots movement” that is now funded by the weapons industry. The NRA is growing increasingly out of touch with its original goals and even with its own membership.   It is estimated that as many as 83% of NRA members are okay with background checks at a time when the organization is trying to remove all barriers. You see, members also have family they would like to keep safe. 




HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF 


 Murrah Building Bombing —  On April 19, 1995, just six days after LaPierre sent out his NRA fundraising letter, the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City was destroyed by a bomb, killing 168 people.
It was later discovered that the conspirators behind the Oklahoma City bombing, Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols, were also angry over gun control laws and the federal government’s involvement in the Ruby Ridge and Waco tragedies.  Gun control advocates suggested that the inflammatory rhetoric in LaPierre’s letter had encouraged the bombing. 


 Hitler Propaganda Tactics  — Listening to Wayne LaPierre is like listening to Adolf Hitler on steroids,  all the conversation is about the evil ones, the soft targets, the gun free zones, and it’s never about the 331 million people here and the 350 million guns presently reportable, and we don’t know how many illegal guns and users are in that mix.  

Hours later, Trump was at the White House talking about school safety after last week's mass shooting at a Parkland, Fla., high school. Notice, T-RUMP used some of the same talking points, key words and phrases as LaPierre used. T-RUMP one who does not use a prompter - he read its off  a 65 inch TV screen.


 LaPierre and T-RUMP —   “ We have to harden our schools, not soften them. A gun-free zone to a killer or somebody who wants to be a killer, that's like going in for the ice cream.
That's like 'here I am, take me.' We have to get smart on gun-free zones. When they see 'this is a gun-free zone,' that means that nobody has a gun except them, nobody's going to be shooting bullets in the other direction. And they see that, it's such a beautiful target. They live for gun-free zones.

“Now what I'd recommend doing is the people that do carry, we give them a bonus, we give them a little bit of a bonus, because frankly they'd feel more comfortable having the gun anyway, you give them a little bit of a bonus, so practically for free you've now made the school into a hardened target, same sh*t LaPierre used.


 The NRA Dogma  —  Wayne LaPierre, regularly describes America as a kind of place where only the armed can survive. As he wrote in a 2013 article, “Hurricanes, Tornados. Riots, Terrorists, Gangs, Lone Criminals.  You need a gun”.  The NRA and the gun manufacturers are in a symbiotic relationship, where they both benefit whenever guns become a political issue.  He has created the maniacal enterprise of fear, retribution, a touch of insanity and the weak in our society have succumbed.  Four of the last shooters were not sane enough to be near a firearm.

For the NRA, it’s about members and money. Follow the money, for the gun manufacturers, it’s about sales and protection from legal liability.  

And as long as gun owners are kept agitated, angry, and afraid, they both win.  Many will believe anything, other than true sportsman they qualify in lower educated and just like joining stupid clubs as justification for their weaknesses. Weak-minders flourish when amongst other weak-minders. 

They are praised as Patriots by some and dangerous loose cannons or gun nuts by others and when the weak-minded find cause we will have people killing each other.  It has already happened.   In the US, there are now somewhere around 400 million guns, according to the Pew Research Center.  That’s more guns than people by 60 million.

Judges and legislators across the political spectrum recognize the constitutional right to bear arms but not bear murders.   And gun and ammunition sales to private citizens are a significant part of a roughly $15 billion industry that’s seeing plenty of growth. So money changes hands if you get my grifter — 

What makes the gun industry so controversial, of course, is the ever-shifting debate about how to reconcile gun rights and public safety.  Last year in this country 31,000 people were killed by firearms,  the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimated — since not all get recorded or found, roughly 85 people per day. The US has one of the highest rates of civilian gun ownership and one of the highest rates of firearm-related deaths per capita across developed countries around the world. 

The NRA is not the NRA of the members, those folks people are cash cows for the good old boys. The NRA is not the NRA of the  Gun owners, Sportsmen, Competitors, Collectors nor Enthusiasts, It is nothing but a lobbyist for the gun manufacturers.  And your dues and membership money, promotional choices and programming will not go where they could do some good.   

It is not the NRA I joined decades ago, it went political because there is tons of money in political.When the truth gets exposed eighteen members of their Board bilked the member ship of as much as 65 million dollars  Keep laughing, thats where your money went to bribe the gun lobby and themselves living like kings. If you really want to look stupid  —  you should buy a bigger mirror —  

The NRA is also the NRA of the gun manufacturers, it is a lobbyist organization… supposed charitable enterprise.  FRAUD GANG, YOUR MONEY GOES TO THEIR BOARD MEMBERS AND DEALS JUST LIKE FAKE PASTORS - NOT A CHARITY  — Failure for an elected official to support the NRA will result in the NRA supporting the opposition when it’s time for re-election.  There is more, lots more and it’s all surfacing — 

For the uninformed and ignorant, the NRA gets tens of millions of dollars from gun manufacturers, through a variety of channels, not just checks but advertising in NRA publications and special promotions the manufacturers run. For instance, every time someone buys a Ruger, the company donates $2 to the NRA. Buy one from Taurus, and they’ll pay for a year’s membership in the NRA.

Violence Manifests It self  —  What’s more, a growing body of research suggests that simply owning a gun is correlated with an increased likelihood that you’ll be a victim of violence. A study published in 2014 in the Annals of Internal Medicine found that people who live in homes with firearms are over three times as likely to die from suicide and two times as likely to be a victim of homicide as those who don’t have access to firearms. 


🎼  “ Where Has All The Money Gone" — Long Time Passing —  Hmmm a few Bars — 

  • A former pro football player who serves on the National Rifle Association board was paid $400,000 by the group in recent years for public outreach and firearms training.   
  • Another board member, a writer in New Mexico, collected more than $28,000 for articles in NRA publications.  
  • Yet another board member sold ammunition from his private company to the NRA for an undisclosed sum. 
  • The NRA, which has been rocked by allegations of exorbitant spending by top executives, also directed money in recent years that went to board members — the very people tasked with overseeing the organization’s finances.
  • In all, 18 members of the NRA’s 76-member board, who are not paid as directors, collected money from the group during the past three years, according to tax filings, state charitable reports and NRA correspondence reviewed by The Washington Post.
  • The payments received by about one-quarter of board members, the extent of which has not previously been reported, deepen questions about the rigor of the board’s oversight as it steered the country’s largest and most powerful gun rights group, according to tax experts and some longtime members.  Million upon millions of dollars.


Where Is The NRA I Knew?  — Years ago, I forget exactly, maybe mid-late 80’s at an NRA rally in Tampa,  I was a member and believer in the NRA and asked to and addressed with several other speakers, the mostly adult crowd at the Tampa police Range, now closed, some in semi military uniforms with cute children in matching camos and cowboy boots.  This is the South, and dress for success has some strange codes.  

The occasion was representative of the paranoia and fear when some restrictions on firearms (big magazines and auto firearms) were being discussed in Congress.  The crowd was pretty well charged up.  My turn to speak and I defended our rights to bear arms and added “ Within Reason” under the second amendment and basic Republican Principles, I promoted the NRA,  and then:

Whom Do You Blame? They Are Crooks  — Breaking News —  

We learned the NRA has secretly mishandled sixty-five million dollars of your dues, never went to where they told you disguised in covert felt to their members only of the board,  that went to the Eighteen Board Members of the Club which is fraud since the NRA declares as a charity.  They themselves as a charity are limited to the money not used as a charity.

$5,900,000  Given to Republicans in 2016 election cycle,  $106,000 given to Democrats in 2016 election cycle. Meanwhile T-RUMP and his campaign received 75 million for NRA sources. Some think this is the collusion contact for Russian money laundering as much of the money cannot be explained —  Putin buys T-RUMP —

The Center for Responsive Politics, a nonpartisan think tank that tracks money in politics, found that in 2016 more than half of the members of the House of Representatives — or 232 of the 435 — received money from gun rights groups like the National Rifle Association and Gun Owners of America. That money went disproportionately to Republicans. Only nine Democrats received campaign contributions from these groups

It's simple, the NRA lobbyist group exists because our Congressmen take their bribes.  And refuse to discuss gun control or create false narratives claiming it is not the time.  Blaming it on anything they can other than truth, mental health, climate change, the Russian hoax, ingrown toenails, and bone spurs, alone kept these celebrity hair-do’s out of the military and many of them are into pubic service instead of public service.

👉🏻  THE BOOK OF DONALD TRUMP



Finally New York Charges Brought Forth  -  The Attorney General of New York is the chief legal officer of the US State, New York and head of the Department of Law of the state government.The office has been in existence in some form since 1626, under the Dutch colonial government of New York.  Democrat Letitia James currently serves as Attorney General, in office since January 1, 2019.

  1. In 2015, NRA contributions totaled $95 million. In that year — Wayne LaPierre received a $3.7 million deferred compensation distribution from his “ Employee funded deferred compensation plan”,  which was required by federal law, and according to the NRA raised his total annual compensation to $5,110,985

  2. In 2016 the  NRA raised  a record $366 million and spent $412 million for political activities.

  3. All told, the Attorney General James accused the NRA leaders of wasteful, unchecked spending that helped lead the organization to turn a $27.8 million surplus in 2015 to a $36.3 million net deficit in 2018.

  4. At a Manhattan news conference, James said the NRA has operated as “  breeding ground for greed, abuse and brazen illegality.”  “Today we send a strong and loud message: No one is above the law, not even the NRA, one of the most powerful organizations in this country,” she said.

  5. Among the allegations laid out in the suit:  LaPierre, NRA’s chief executive and executive vice president since 1991, and his family are accused of traveling to the Bahamas on a private charter at least eight times over three years, costing the NRA $500,000. 

  6. On some of those trips, an NRA vendor allowed him to use a 107-foot yacht with four staterooms and two jet skis, which he never disclosed to the NRA. LaPierre and his wife also went on an all-expenses paid African safari covered by an NRA vendor, according to the suit.

  7. LaPierre is also accused of spending more than $3.6 million in NRA funds on black car services and travel consultants in just the last two years, as well as teeing up a contract that guarantees him lifetime compensation, worth an estimated $17 million.

  8. Former treasurer and CFO Wilson "Woody" Phillips is alleged to have set up a $1.8 million consulting deal for himself just before his retirement, as well as overseeing an arrangement that saw Ackerman McQueen, an advertising and PR firm, pay for NRA leaders' entertainment and travel costs before billing the organization. That arrangement is subject of a separate legal dispute.

  9. Also named in the lawsuit are former NRA Chief of Staff Joshua Powell and current Corporate Secretary and General Counsel John Frazer.


  Advocate To Adversary   —  Those who fervently defended their right to bear arms and voted for the men to protect those rights were on a noble trip but driven by a fools errand.  Many important decisions are made by our Congressmen and Senators.  They, some of those bouffant  brained useless individuals are not supporting the publics wishes, ignoring the situation, bowing to the demands of the Gun Lobby and running like the cowards they really are.

Whom you elected did not abide by what you voted for.  This is wrong.  78% voted for more stringent gun control before all the mass shootings took place and it failed in Congress since the NRA bought them off a long time ago.  It’s now in the higher eighties and close to 90%.

And voting is the answer to gun control.  We vote hopefully to put those with our interests in place to make wrongs right.   We have serious issues in this country, and most of it being caused by whom we elect.  They have all been bought off, lock stock and barrel, from the local state representatives to Congress.  Its time to take the streets back from the bad guys and the men who are bought and sold by the NRA using the second amendment to justify, as they are as guilty as the shooters.


  Common Sense Suggestions —  After Closing The NRA  —  

DEATH PENALTY —  Restore the death penalty, mass murderer penalty  —  no mercy for child killers  — evidence must be beyond a shadow of a  doubt--30 days and execution is required and mandatory — eliminate life sentences 

Prohibit  closed door sessions on gun control - complete transparency — recorded —  charge our politicians with accepting bribery for  gun sales regulation,  aiding, and/or abetting crime if bribes exist — 

Remove Any Corporate Donations and Vote Pressure — To The NRA until they are gone— Arrest the money guys — The NRA Leaders As Traitors and Crooks  who lied 


NEW — Establish Gun LAWS and Insurance Required for Ownership — Fine The NRA/ Gun Manufacturers 50,000 dollars per victim for proper burial and survivor costs — Personal liability Insurance assigned to the weapon and the owner only —  Siblings also must be covered — Raise Minimum Age To 21 Years On All Weapons  — Period, possession with adult or weapon seized.  Three Day Wait On Military Style Weapons and Proof Of Insurance  — No Insurance Fine is 10,000 dollars 


ILLEGAL POSSESSION —  Ghost guns  consequence —  if in your possession — the Ghost weapon is destroyed —
Mandatory six months in jail , no exceptions, $5000 fine —  

Escalates double —  if  you build or sell “ ghost guns”,  for second offense —  Ten years and if used in a murder beyond a doubt a mandatory death penalty same as the shooter.  

Ban bump stocks (completed 2021 after they were used at the Vega's slaughter)  And this includes any  illegal “ speed modifications" to existing weapons ar-15 slammer, speed triggers, sear exchanges or mods —  five years in jail - no exceptions No warnings 

Ban Large Magazines Regardless Of purchase date Grand-fathering — Recheck once per year —  Possession is jail or 500  Dollar Fine Per Magazine no second warning you lose the gun and the magazines — no warnings — 

Deer Only Need One Shot —  Ban . 223 For Hunting Large Game  —  Weapon Seized if used — 

COMPETENCY —  
Rules And Or Restrictions On Those With Trespass Or Domestic Violence Records  — No weapons — RED FLAG

Establish Corridors Of Computer Exchanges With Information,  Mental Records, Police Inquires — 

Largest Categories - loss of life in our teen-agers —  is car accidents  and gunfire.  Car accidents are avoidable by proper training and enforcement, no texting —  accidental, basically no intent just carelessness.  Gunfire is simply manslaughter, murder or negligent attempted murder and stupidity

The training at gun shows for concealed carry permitting is four hours,  and we had two students who took the class and asked them the same questions a day later,  he and she failed — they were “A”  students —  The pistol firing qualification consisted of hitting a target with a revolver and soft loads at  about seven to fifteen feet with five or six rounds, some even hit the target.  

Most could do more damage if they threw the gun at the paper target —  Competency Handling Requirements On Tests — Basically this was a joke.  When you are getting a concealed carry and don’t know how a revolver functions, I might be more scared of the victim than the perp  — 


IMPROVE SCHOOL SECURITY, LOCK-DOWNS, ELECTRONIC, ARMING THE TEACHERS -   
The bill, which would have allowed a principal to designate someone to carry firearms on public school campuses, is a bad idea.  Sen. Greg Steube, the committee chairman, issued the stop the bill decision after several top Senators said they were opposed to the bill.   Sniffers And Trained Dogs —  Lets pay for all this with NRA funding — 

I agree it’s not their job and most are not trained with attitude to shoot someone even in defense.  The mode of survival and utter fear are two different reactions, the wrong one at the wrong time can be more dangerous than you might think.  It’s called stress test shooting and police use simulators  to train all the time. 

87% supported preventing people with mental illnesses from purchasing guns.  Frickin morons. the other thirteen percent will pick up the slack — already happening — 

 81% supported making private gun sales and sales at gun shows subject to background checks

66% backed creating a federal database to track gun sales.  


MOST GUN DEATHS ARE SUICIDES —  Obviously mass shootings can happen anywhere, as we saw earlier this month in Buffalo, New York, and this week in Uvalde, Texas.

But most gun deaths do not involve a mass shooting. Most gun deaths are suicides. In 2020, 54% of gun deaths in the US were suicides, which are far less likely to get sustained public attention, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of CDC data.

CNN wrote in 2019 about the rising suicide rate and a study published in the journal JAMA Network Open that found higher suicide rates in rural areas -- and, in cities, if there was a gun shop in the neighborhood.

Chicago does have a horrifically high murder rate, although the guns there often come from a neighboring state.  There are higher murder rates in other cities, and they're often in places with more lax gun laws, like Jackson, Mississippi. Read this CNN dispatch about murders in Jackson. It is heartbreaking.


HIGHEST GUN HOMICIDE RATES IN 2020  — STATES WITH LAX GUN LAWS:
Jackson, Mississippi -- 69 gun homicides per 100,000 people.  Gary, Indiana -- 64.  St. Louis -- 50.  New Orleans -- 48.
Memphis, Tennessee -- 47.


MURDER RATES RISING
The Covid-19 pandemic has led to a rise in gun violence, and in January, a CNN analysis found 10 of the nation's most populous cities set homicide records last year, mostly because of guns. The cities were:   Philadelphia;   Austin, Texas;   Columbus, Ohio;   Indianapolis;    Portland, Oregon;     Memphis, Tennessee;   Louisville, Kentucky;   Milwaukee;   Albuquerque, New Mexico;   Tucson, Arizona. 

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION -   In the large cities hardest hit by gun violence, there are areas that are relatively untouched compared with areas that are under attack, as researchers from the Brookings Institution found in a report published last month.  Thus location and poverty play a large role

In Chicago, they said, gun homicides in 2019 and 2020 were concentrated in neighborhoods far from the city center "that have long suffered from severe disinvestment as a result of white flight, and are now centers of concentrated poverty with predominantly Black residents."

In other words, it's generations of neglect and division that help drive the murder rate in cities. All these deaths -- rural suicide, urban murder and mass shootings everywhere -- have one thing in common: GUNS
