On Friday, The National Rifle Association took a shot at their own president Oliver North. The suite details increased “tensions” between the two.

“An updated version of a civil complaint, entered in Virginia state court on April 24, make new claims about Col. Oliver North’s relationship with the company that runs NRATV, the video network linked to the gun-rights group,” a report from The Daily Beast said.

Adding, “The filings are part of an eye-popping lawsuit the organization filed against its long-time ad agency, which built and runs the network. The suit gives a rare narrative of the tension within the organization.”

The first complaint was filed on April 12. The suit makes several claims about North’s failure to deliver on NRA TV.

“The updates to the complaint include more detail about North’s work and point to deep irritation between the group and its president. Not only did North fail to deliver on all of the material he promised for NRATV, the suit alleges,” the report said.

It also claims that North took a salary from both the NRA and Ackerman McQueen, an advertising firm.

Adding, “North, in effect, double-dipped by drawing a salary from both the gun-rights group and Ackerman McQueen at the same time.”

The lawsuit went on slam North’s performance in his documentary series and said that the returns on investment was “less favorable” than anticipated.

“North didn’t deliver as many episodes as the non-profit expected, according to the suit, and hasn’t demonstrated that he was able to bring in the hoped-for the sponsorship cash,” the report said.

“But the new court filings hint that the organization’s internal skirmishes and struggles may be just as big of a threat,” the report explained.

Trump’s team files fifth demand for Georgia to audit their ballot signatures as their campaign to overturn the election fizzles

President Donald Trump's campaign has filed its fifth demand for the state of Georgia to audit the signatures on ballots.

The statement from the Trump team said that the "Georgia secretary of state should perform an immediate audit of the signatures on all absentee ballot applications and absentee ballot envelopes received for the Nov. 3 General Election. The Trump Campaign estimates that between 38,250 and 45,626 illegal votes from absentee ballots alone were cast in the state of Georgia -- far beyond the Biden-Harris ticket's current margin of 12,670 votes."

Supreme Court hearing gets awkward as conservative Alito runs roughshod over chief justice Roberts

Published

President Trump is pressing the U.S. Supreme Court to allow him to exclude undocumented immigrants from the census count -- a move that goes against more than 200 years of practice where non-citizen residents, even those in the U.S. illegally, were among those counted.

While questioning New York Solicitor General Barbara Underwood, conservative Justice Samuel Alito said that the prospect of submitting two documents, one detailing census numbers of every person inside the U.S. and another detailing numbers that exclude undocumented immigrants inside the U.S. "seems like a totally meaningless formality."
