  • Help Rick Saccone keep Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District Republican

    A recent Politico story about how Democrats see their chances of winning back the House contained this telling paragraph: “Now many Democrats say they’re watching nervously as polls start to trend in Republicans’ favor — and worry they’re witnessing the beginning of a slow-motion train wreck that they have no idea how to stop.” We can make their nightmare come true; but only if we pitch in and FIGHT! We have to support Rick Saccone Republican candidate 18th Congressional District of Pennsylvania. He is fighting to keep a liberal Democrat from taking our Republican seat in a special election on...
  • Here They Go – Clinton Camp Uses Mueller Russian Indictments To Say, “Truth Is Coming Out.”

    As everyone knows, Special Counsel Robert Mueller just indicted 13 Russians for: “agents posed as Americans to support Donald Trump and undermine Hillary Clinton.” Really? How vague and seemingly generic. The whole election process is about supporting one candidate over another, and there are those all over the world who participate in that process. How many times have Americans actually interfered in elections all over the world?

    Am Shooting Journal ^ | 2/22/2018 | J Hines
    The Colt Model 1911 has a really long lifespan. I can remember when I first qualified on the 1911 while in the military. This may sound cheesy, but it was a huge accomplishment for myself with no pistol shooting experience at the time. What I also love was seeing those old WWII training footage back in the day. You'll notice this footage is very similar to the FBI pistol training and utilizing Col. Rex Applegate combat shooting methods for close quarter combat. Maybe I’m just old school but I like the tradition that these bad boys 1911 have gone through....
  • CNN Stages a Fake Townhall on the Parkland Killings After President Trump Hosts a Real One

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) It’s all fake news all the time at @CNN – But then, you already knew that, didn’t you? One of the kids who survived the school shootings in Parkland, Florida last week has revealed that his appearance at a CNN townhall with Senator Marco Rubio and others was actually scripted. He was invited to participate in a panel and told he would be able to ask his own questions, but once the fake journalists at CNN realized his question did not fit the anti-gun narrative the fake news channel is pushing, he...
  • The first launch of NASA’s SLS rocket delayed again

    SLS continues to be this ever receding but very expensive fantasy, scheduled for a future that never arrives, while spending enormous amounts of money that would be far better spent in other ways. The first launch, should it happen in 2020, would be three years later than originally planned, nine years after the initiation of the SLS project, and sixteen years after George Bush first proposed it. For this single unmanned test mission NASA will have spent about $25 billion.

  • School Safety and the Placebo of Gun Control

    02/21/2018 9:52:07 PM PST · by Impala64ssa · 6 replies
    “We have to do something.” I’ve heard that phrase time and again from politicians and gun control spokesmen. With some 23 thousand firearms regulations already on the books, it seems that we’ve done quite a lot that hasn’t worked. Those ineffective laws don’t stop the urge for more feel-good regulation after the murders in Parkland, Florida. We tried mandatory background checks. Those laws didn’t stop the mass murder at Umpqua Community College in Oregon. Background checks didn’t stop the murders at Isla Vista, California, or at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, California. I chose these particular examples because...
  • Ted Cruz defends Second Amendment, blasts ‘enormous hypocrisy’ of Hollywood liberals on gun control

    The Blaze ^ | February 21, 2018 | Dave Urbanski
    Sen. Ted Cruz was asked by a TMZ reporter in Washington, D.C., last week if Hollywood, while touting overwhelming opposition to the Second Amendment, shares blame for gun violence due to its influence in American culture. And the Republican from Texas shot straight from the hip. I don’t think this is one too many movies with cowboys and Indians or [Arnold] Schwarzenegger, Quentin Tarantino, or what have you. I don’t think that’s the cause. Evil has always been with us. Now Hollywood does glorify violence, and I’ve got to say I wish we had a little bit less of that....

    The Blaze ^ | February 20, 2018 | Chris Enloe
    In the wake of last weekÂ’s tragic shooting at a Florida high school, the national narrative has centered on guns. Democrats mostly argue for increased gun control measures, while Second Amendment advocates mostly oppose any new restrictions. The debate usually dies quickly after a shooting, but it has remained strong over the last week. Now, even President Donald Trump is reportedly considering new restrictions on firearms. No. 1: Raising the purchase age for certain firearms Axios reported Wednesday that Trump has privately discussed supporting a measure that would raise the purchase age for semi-automatic rifles from 18 to 21. Currently,...
  • Allow for Cadet Peter Wang to receive a Full Honors Military Burial

    02/21/2018 5:10:23 PM PST · by Kartographer · 37 replies
    Peter Wang, 15, was one of the students killed in Florida this past week. He was a Jrotc Cadet who was last seen, in uniform, holding doors open and thus allowing other students, teachers, and staff to flee to safety. Wang was killed in the process. His selfless and heroic actions have led to the survival of dozens in the area. Wang died a hero, and deserves to be treated as such, and deserves a full honors military burial.

    Big Oil is due for a disruption. The world’s most important industry has been carrying on without any significant changes in its day to day routine for far too long. But now, the new tech on the block has its sights set on the multi-trillion-dollar oil and gas sector. It’s official: Blockchain technology has infiltrated Big Oil. The hype behind blockchain has reached a full-blown frenzy. And for good reason. The technology, which creates secure ledgers for digital transactions and rapidly accelerates the pace at which transactions can be made, has the potential to disrupt every major industry: real estate,...

    Billy Graham was part of the conservative movement in 20th Century Protestantism as 'fundamentalist' and 'modernist' divisions split up the major denominations and led to independent churches and para-church organizations sprouting up across the country. Dr. Graham spent the 1940's as a touring evangelist for Youth for Christ. Graham preached from town to town. Tents were erected for evangelistic meetings and he went here, there and everywhere from coast to coast. A series of meetings were held in my area (York,PA) in 1948. Then one day a famous man, a wealthy wan and a man with a media empire walked...

    There's a redacted version of it in the public domain right now, but Ryan Bundy would like to see full disclosure of a memo written by a Bureau of Land Management agent about the corrupt nature of the federal investigation of the Bundys and their supporters in connection with the Bunkerville Standoff. His motion to unseal Larry Wooten's letter was filed in US District Court in Las Vegas today (Tuesday February 20th). Charged have been dismissed against him in connection with the Bunkerville Standoff, but prosecutors want to reverse US District Judge Gloria M. Navarro's dismissal "with prejudice" of the...

    I wish that I could tell you that my life in Bangkok is better with very few guns in the city, but now I have to watch out for bombs. I have been living in Bangkok for nearly half a decade now, but I was raised in America, and I too am watching the extensive back and forth between gun rights supporters and those pushing for strict gun control in the wake of the Florida school shooting. In my extensive world travels, I have made a number of observations in countries that have gun control that might add something of...

    ... The next time you see some bow-tied, goateed, bespectacled tweedy intoning on television about some historical this-or-that, just keep these rankings in mind. This is not just a difference of opinion; it’s lunacy. Ideology obviously informs how someone looks at political figures. But in the case of these political scientists, ideology doesn’t just color their opinions; it crushes common sense.

    I checked into YouTube this morning to update on the news.  My favorite reporter, Charles Walton, had been terminated!  I am in shock.  He has been reporting on the Florida school shooting and the Las Vegas Massacre – I guess he found out too much. I then went to my second best source, Dustin Nemos, and discovered what is coming down the Tube.  Dustin is being censored, also, but his channel is still up.  The following video is from Dustin Nemos , and I hope you can watch it. If the video has been removed here are links to inform...

    So much for the UN’s commitment to real face-to-face dialogue or moral clarity. As Ambassador Haley observed, “The problem is that the UN has proven itself time and again to be a grossly biased organization when it comes to Israel.” Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas addressed the United Nations Security Council on Tuesday, February 20th. He delivered many of the same old Palestinian talking points. He claimed that the Palestinians remain open to negotiations based on the pre-June 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as the Palestinian capital. “We are ready to take the longest journey,” Abbas declared. “We are ready...

    Churchill faced the immense juggernaut of Hitler’s military might. President Trump faces the collectivist agenda of an entrenched, fanatical, ruthless, well-funded and prolific globalist elite (and their attendant useful idiots) If you support President Trump and have not yet seen the movie “Darkest Hour” permit me to suggest that you do so at the earliest opportunity. If you are anything like myself you will be struck by the similarities between the challenges faced by British Prime Minister Winston Churchill in the early days of WW II, and those faced by American President Donald Trump almost eighty years later.
  • Polar Bear Attack Stopped with Three Shots from .44 Magnum Revolver

    On Thursday, 19 March, 2015, a woman with a .44 magnum stopped a polar bear from attacking Jakub Moravec, 37, in the Svalbard archipelago. Polar bear attacks are expected there, and tourists are not allowed unless they carry a high powered firearm. In this case, the rifles were left outside the tents, but inside the protective alarm wire. The armed woman, mother of Zuzanna Hakova, shot the bear three times with the revolver. From telegraph.co.uk: They were lucky to be alive after a polar bear broke into their tent on a remote Norwegian island and tried to maul them....
