Having a convention with the President of the US as Keynote speaker doesn't sound like "retreating into the shadows".  

But they do a lot of work behind the scenes so I might agree.  But they are still powerful and successful.  Florida is now allowing armed teachers.  Probably a compromise because they wanted them to be mandated armed and trained against their wishes.

I guess I don't see Trump addressing the NRA, as any big "get" for them.

He is preaching to the converted.

No different than a Trump pep rally.

NPR piece on Trump/NRA, stated that recent financial disclosures show NRA is operating on a $20 million deficit.

Ouch!

It sounded like the rabid right ate up his appearance.

I guess they enjoyed the bit of gimmicky nonsense when he threw a pen out to the crowd.

Geez.

Get some class!

I was referring to how out of the mainstream media the NRA leadership has been since it became widely known that they had been infiltrated by a Russian spy and had distributed a bunch of Russian money during the 2016 election.  Shortly after that they named North as the new face of leadership. There continues to be significant money shenanigans going on in the organization. 

We used to see and hear from Lapierre pretty routinely before all that.

Andrew P. Napolitano, a former judge of the Superior Court of New Jersey, is now the senior judicial analyst at Fox News Channel. 

He wrote an opinion piece on the information revealed in the Mueller report and whether or not President Trump obstructed justice.

Quote

Judge Andrew Napolitano: Did President Trump obstruct justice?

...   Last week, Attorney General William Barr released publicly a redacted version of Mueller's final report. That report concluded that notwithstanding 127 confirmed communications between the campaign and Russians from July 2015 to November 2016 (Trump said there were none), the government could not prove the existence of a conspiracy.

On obstruction, the report concluded that notwithstanding numerous obstructive events engaged in by the president personally, the special counsel would not charge the president and would leave the resolution of obstruction of justice to Congress. Congress, of course, cannot bring criminal charges, but it can impeach...

...   The Constitution prescribes treason, bribery or other high crimes and misdemeanors as the sole bases for impeachment. We know that obstruction of justice constitutes an impeachable offense under the "high crimes and misdemeanors" rubric because both presidents in the modern era who were subject to impeachment proceedings -- Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton -- were charged with obstructing justice...

...   The nearly universal view of law enforcement, however, is that the obstruction statute prohibits all attempted self-serving interference with government investigations or proceedings. Thus, as Georgetown Professor Neal Katyal recently pointed out, former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick was convicted of obstruction for interfering with an investigation of his extramarital affair, even though the affair was lawful...

...   The president's job is to enforce federal law. If he had ordered its violation to save innocent life or preserve human freedom, he would have a moral defense. But ordering obstruction to save himself from the consequences of his own behavior is unlawful, defenseless and condemnable.

Trump tweets about Napolitano:

....Ever since Andrew came to my office to ask that I appoint him to the U.S. Supreme Court, and I said NO, he has been very hostile! Also asked for pardon for his friend. A good “pal” of low ratings Shepard Smith.

Thank you to brilliant and highly respected attorney Alan Dershowitz for destroying the very dumb legal argument of “Judge” Andrew Napolitano....

Apparently the remark about being a "pal" of Shepard Smith is some sort of gay-bashing. Ugh.

Albeit weak, Senator Graham has found his voice concerning those pesky Russians.

Did you watch his interview on Face the Nation? His voice is partisan, weak, and feckless.

I don't have access to television.

My news come from NPR, and online WaPo, NY Times, NY Post, and CNN.
