Cincinnati was not the takeover of
the NRA by "crazies," it was a reaffirmation of our role in preserving American
liberty-the will of the members.
And that gets back to the venom
of the media and of the political elites
against the transition of power and the
election of President Trump.
In the watershed 2016 election,
Trump and his majorities in both houses
of Congress have a mandate: put the
nation back on track.
The election was about returning
to what President Abraham Lincoln
described as the vision of the founders-a government "of the people, by
the people, for the people."
For the eight years of Barack
Obama's "fundamental transformation,"
it had become his government "of the
elites, by the elites and for the elites."
What we are seeing in the deluge of
hatred and bigotry against the remarkable change in the direction of our
nation-against the will of a beleaguered people-is the elites gone rabid.
Trump has sworn to make our nation
great again, and the elites can't allow
that to happen.
Hence we are beginning to hear talk
of "impeachment." It's growing in the
media. It's crazy.
But it can't happen unless the likes
of Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and
Sen. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and their
media cheerleaders succeed in winning
majorities in the coming 2018 mid-term
congressional elections. Removing
Trump will be their single evil election
issue. Bank on it.
But just as NRA members were a
major factor in electing the most proSecond Amendment president since
Ronald Reagan, and a Congress to back
him, we must work hard to maintain our
majorities in the U.S. Senate and the
U.S. House of Representatives. And we
must protect our gains in state legislatures and governorships.
We must organize. We must
overcome the unending false attacks
against all things Trump so that the
elites will not have a chance to attain
their ultimate goal: to make America
