The Republican Party establishment is blowing it hard, caving to COVID-19 hysteria, and instituting severe limitations for the upcoming Republican National Convention set to take place in Jacksonville, Fla. next month.
Republican National Committee (RNC) chairwoman Ronna McDaniel announced tight restrictions over the convention, which will go from Aug. 24 to 27. Trump supporters will be hassled and denied free access to the event to placate pandemic alarmists.
Only roughly 2,500 delegates will be allowed to participate in the first three days due to the pandemic. The GOP establishment brainiacs hope that everyone will stick around for Trump’s speech on the final day of the convention despite being disenfranchised.
“When we made these changes, we had hoped to be able to plan a traditional convention celebration to which we are all accustomed,” McDaniel said. “However, adjustments must be made to comply with state and local health guidelines.”
Some individuals close to President Trump are urging him to pull the plug on the convention entirely. It does not look like that will happen, but COVID-19 will certainly put a damper on the event, cause the crowd size to dwindle, and give the fake news media ample opportunity to denigrate Trump.
“We can gather and put on a top-notch event that celebrates the incredible accomplishments of President Trump’s administration and his re-nomination for a second term — while also doing so in a safe and responsible manner,” McDaniel wrote.
Meanwhile, prominent Republicans are simply announcing that they will not attend the event, and that list is growing by the day.
“I’m not going to go. And I’m not going to go because of the virus situation,” Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) said to The Des Moines Register.
“Senator Alexander is an honorary chair of the Tennessee Trump campaign, but he will not be attending the convention because he believes the delegate spots should be reserved for those who have not had that privilege before as he has had,” a statement from the office of Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) said.
An aide for Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) said that the lawmaker “never made plans to attend the convention because she has never attended the national convention in years when she is up for election.”
Karina Borger, a spokeswoman for Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), noted that Murkowski “does not plan to attend the convention at this time.”
President Trump’s re-election campaign is in shambles, and the establishment operatives who have co-opted his efforts are clearly to blame.
Gun Owners of America Calls Out ATF for Undermining the Presidency
The ATF Continues to Show Why It’s an Unconstitutional Federal Agency
On October 27, 2020, Gun Owner of America Vice President Erich Pratt called out the the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) for a change it made in a well-established interpretation of the statutory and regulatory definition of “handguns” under the Gun Control Act (GCA).
Due to this change in interpretation, a number of handguns which fire ammunition that is usually used in rifles or handguns manufactured from receivers that have additionally been used to make rifles can no longer be imported. The agency apparently used new and stringent standards in a modified importation test in order to come to this conclusion. In a GOA press release, the revised importation test is “arbitrarily used to evaluate whether a weapon meets the statutory ‘sporting purposes’ requirement. Congress has never defined what ‘sporting purposes’ means.
Further, the ATF also hinted at how firearms that are legally imported “may wrongly have been approved for importation” and that these “firearms may require reevaluation.”
The scope of the suggested “reevaluation” is unclear. However, if the GCA interpretation is used for domestic firearms, then these weapons could fall under the National Firearms Act (NFA) definition of “Any Other Weapon (AOW).” If a firearm is categorized as an AOW, mandatory registration, taxation, travel restrictions, and a long waiting period would be slapped on it. At that point, gun owners would face criminal prosecution for possessing an unregistered NFA weapon. This kind of charge could have an individual facing a prison sentence of ten years and fines could reach $250,000.
Regard this new development, Erich Pratt declared “By disregarding orders to stand down, rogue ATF agents seem prepared to help usher in a Joe Biden Administration, especially because their actions appear to be purposefully timed to anger President Trump’s base immediately before an election.”
Despite an executive action from President Trump prohibiting the imposition of ‘new standards’ without express authorization by law, the apparent interpretation by a rogue and reckless ATF has implications that could criminalize millions of otherwise non-violent and law-abiding gun owners,” Pratt added. “This continues to demonstrate why the National Firearms Act should be repealed and the agency itself should be fully dismantled.
Pratt pointed to some of Trump’s successes in issuing executive orders that fire rogue government employees:
It also demonstrates why President Trump recently issued an Executive Order creating a new classification of ‘Schedule F’ employees. This new classification allows the President to ‘drain the swamp’ by firing policy-making employees who would rather go rogue than follow the law.
The GOA VP warned about the ATF’s rogue behavior and how it will mesh with a potential Biden administration:
The recent Honey Badger gun ban and revelation of absurd private classification rulings represents a pro-Biden ‘October Surprise’ by an out-of-control, anti-gun ATF. By disregarding orders to stand down, rogue ATF agents seem prepared to help usher in a Joe Biden Administration, especially because their actions appear to be purposefully timed to anger President Trump’s base immediately before an election.
ATF’s actions are just a taste of what is to come in Joe Biden’s gun controlled-America. The Biden gun control plan seeks to treat many commonly-owned, semi-automatic rifles as NFA weapons, which endangers the freedom of tens of millions of peaceful individuals who own these guns, possession in and of itself should not be a crime.
The ATF takes advantage of its bureaucratic status to sneak in its tyrannical acts under everyone’s noses. Thankfully, there are gun lobbies such as GOA who work tirelessly to expose such treachery. We need more of this kind of activism to expose just how nefarious the ATF is.
