    Unless the professional praetorian media apparatus can find another ‘sh**hole’ to hide behind, next week is shaping up to be a VERY bad week for Democrats.
  • (IS DACA) Donald Trump’s “Read My Lips” Moment? (YES)

    01/10/2018 11:53:22 AM PST · by Cubs Fan · 154 replies
    The Democrats well remember their success in baiting George H. Bush into alienating his base by persuading him to renege on his campaign pledge: “Read my lips … no new taxes!” Well the new taxes came, the already suspicious base could no longer rationalize to themselves that Bush would continue the Reagan legacy, and Bush was a single-term President. His successor being none other than Bill Clinton. If granting amnesty to illegal aliens — who are trespassers in this land — does not equate to a “read my lips” level betrayal, it’s hard to imagine what would be. The White...

    The Red Carpet at this Sunday’s Golden Globes will be a little more monochromatic than in years past. Many Hollywood actresses will don black to send a message of solidarity with victims of sexual harassment. The #MeToo movement of last October has generated a new initiative, Time’s Up, which will include a legal defense fund and advocate for legislation combatting workplace harassment. The message the women of Hollywood and Time’s Up wish to send: Time’s up for those who engage in sexual misconduct. But is it? Until our society recognizes and decries the harms of Internet pornography and the hypersexualization...

    For Democrats, any excuse to open the immigration floodgates is good. Take Hillary’s failed VP running mate, Sen. Tim Kaine, and his response to the Iran protests. Of all the ways the United States could support the protesters, what pops into Kaine’s cranium? Yup, as Kaine tweeted [emphasis added]: “Big step US could take to support democracy movement in Iran: Drop the Iranian travel ban.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Car bomb kills journalist behind Panama Papers offshore tax evasion investigation 'days after she received threats to her safety' (Full Title) A journalist who led the Panama Papers offshore tax evasion expose was killed today when a bomb blew up her car. Investigative reporter Daphne Caruana Galizia - dubbed a "one-woman WikiLeaks" - was killed as she was driving near the village of Bidnija in northern Malta. She had filed a complaint to police a fortnight ago after receiving personal threats to her safety, local media said. Caruana Galizia ran a hugely popular blog relentlessly highlighting cases of alleged corruption,...

    When we gather together this Christmas, it’s going to be super-awkward since everybody is dead because Donald Trump pulled out of the Paris Climate Scam, repealed net neutrality, and cut taxes. The depredations of Genghis Khan, the Black Plague, and the repeal of the Obamacare mandate – these are pretty much the same thing. Santa Claus and all of our dreams are dead too. On the plus side, since we are all dead there’s no one to make egg nog, which is the worst of all possible nogs. “You know what these eggs need? Some milk. And then rum.” No....
  • Paper Ballots Are Being Destroyed in Alabama

    truthfeednews ^ | DECEMBER 13, 2017 | AMY MORENO
    A valid recount in Alabama is impossible because the paper ballots (evidence) is being destroyed as we speak. The Alabama Supreme Court stayed a lower court’s order to election officials that would have required the preservation of voting records in Tuesday’s Senate special election. A circuit judge on Monday ordered election officials to set voting machines to save all digital ballot images, which would preserve voting records in the event of a recount. Alabama’s AL.com said Tuesday morning that the state’s Supreme Court had blocked the order. A group of four Alabama voters filed a lawsuit last Thursday arguing that...

    Nguyen Ngoc Nhu Quynh (C) attends her appeal trial at a court in Nha Trang, Nov. 30, 2017. A court in south central Vietnam on Thursday rejected jailed blogger Nguyen Ngoc Nhu Quynh’s appeal of her 10-year prison sentence for publishing politically sensitive material online, prompting condemnation from watchdogs who called the hearing a “farce” and demanded her immediate release. The People’s Court of Khanh Hoa province, in Nha Trang city, took three hours to uphold the conviction of Quynh—also known by her blogger handle Me Nam, or Mother Mushroom—who was arrested Oct. 10, 2016 while on her way to...

    It seems that many states, my home state of New Jersey included, are hell-bent on legalizing recreational use of cannabis. The arguments in favor of this, though loud and dominant in the media, are not particularly convincing. Most of the advocates tout the desire to legalize the drug so that the state can raise additional tax revenue off of the sales. Enhancing the ability of an over-bearing confiscatory high-tax state like New Jersey to extract even more revenue from its citizens is never going to be a compelling argument for me. Slightly better is the argument that legalizing the drug...

    In an effort to ensure that this blog devoted to America’s foremost fair-and-balanced news network is itself fair and balanced, I have been trying to leaven my criticisms of Fox News with praise for those programs and personalities I actually enjoy. Nothing is all bad, after all, not even Fox News, and the network even airs some shows that might reasonably be described as good. One of those shows is The Five, the rowdy early-evening talk show that somehow manages to be consistently entertaining despite the involvement of Jesse Watters. The Five airs at 5 p.m. and features a five-person...

    Hillary Clinton sent out 8 tweets about Trump’s relationship with Russia leading up to election day in anticipation of the release of the Russia dossier. She was preparing the public for the Russian narrative plot she had been working on with Fusion GPS and dossier author Christopher Steele. The FBI launched their Trump-Russia probe in late July of 2016. Per a Politico report from March of 2017: FBI Director James Comey told lawmakers Monday that his agency has been investigating possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian officials since last July. Shortly after the FBI launched a probe into Trump-Russia...

    An estimated 3 million Americans carry a loaded handgun on themselves every day, according to a new study published in the American Journal of Public Health. Researchers from the University of Washington, Harvard University and the University of Colorado conducted the National Firearms Survey in 2015. From the 4,000 U.S. adults who participated in the online survey, 1,500 of them were handgun owners. One significant question was asked how often they carried a loaded handgun when they were out of their homes. The objectives of the study were to “determine the frequency of loaded handgun carrying among US adult handgun...

    After a man wielding a knife attacked and kidnapped a woman, she was able to grab her concealed carry gun and scare him off, probably saving her own life. Guns save lives. An Illinois woman probably saved her life from a knife wielding attacker when she was able to reach her concealed handgun. The woman had parked her car near a shopping mall in Moline when a man brandishing a knife jumped into her vehicle. She reportedly fought with the attacker as he entered her car, whereupon he slashed her arm and told her to drive to a rural area...

    A man who authorities say fell under the influence of the Islamic State group was convicted Wednesday of plotting to behead a conservative American blogger for organizing a Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest. Jurors found David Wright guilty of all charges, including conspiracy to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization and conspiracy to commit acts of terrorism transcending national boundaries. The 28-year-old from Everett, Massachusetts, faces up to life in prison when he’s sentenced in December. Federal officials called Wright’s conviction a victory for America in its fight against terrorism.

Read the excerpt below on how he juggles training, spatial awareness, gun safety and its purpose into quality time with his child.. “Here’s my son Knox. He’s 4 years old. I REALLY want to get him into guns but the key is not to be forceful, so when he wants to go shooting with daddy, this is typically what we do. He stands behind me and holds on to me or just watches and tells me if I hit my target. You...

    This invasive nuisance got some lead medicine, courtesy of high tech – a thermal-imaging scope. Brad Korando shared this action-packed video on Facebook. This is a wild hog that paid the ultimate price for gluttony. Sneaking into the woods at night, this hunter was well-armed for this hungry, invasive hog. A thermal-imaging scope caught the fat hog feeding on corn in the crosshairs. Then, one shot rings out, followed by another. A geyser of blood pours from this feral beast, and this guy caught it all on video. Wild hogs are invasive nightmares that cause destruction to both wildlife and...

    Ever since the Las Vegas shooting and Senator Diane Feinstein introduced her bill to ban bump fire stocks, claims have been made about the speed at which semi-automatic rifles can be made to fire while using these ATF-approved accessories. Defenders pointed out that in order to simulate full-auto fire, you don’t need a bump fire stock . . You can achieve the same rates of fire with a rubber band. Or a belt loop as seen on Youtube channels. But what many really wanted to see was someone with serious skills to fire an un-aided semi-auto AR to see what...
