    Chipper Jones will be enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame in July, but he’s not keeping his public statements to just baseball. The former Atlanta Braves third baseman and avid hunter shared his thoughts on gun control with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Sunday and it won’t surprise you to find out that he has some strong opinions — but not the one you might think.

    All those Very Confident Statements about what was contained in the Carter Page FISA application may be put to the test sometime soon. USA Today reports that DOJ may release parts of the Carter Page FISA application that so far has been only described in the Devin Nunes #ReleaseTheMemo and the Adam Schiff response: In dueling memos released last month, Republican members — led by California Rep. Devin Nunes — alleged that Justice and FBI officials abused their authority in targeting the former campaign adviser by improperly relying on an unsubstantiated dossier prepared by a former British spy. Democrats —...

    VIDEO I smoked 30 Pollo Rojo wing pieces on my 22" Weber Grill. The wings were marinated in the magic mojo at La Ranchera grocery in Broward County. My rub was a combination of Adobo plus Chipotle Sea Salt and other seasonings. One hour of smoking and then the wings were flipped for a final 15 minutes more. Great results primarily due to the very unique secret mojo that La Ranchera uses.

    Here are the best responses to Phillips' question, "Do you think that is committing cultural appropriation?": "Uh ... what?" "I guess it could be perceived as that." "I don't like when people do it to my culture, so, it's just kind of, like, how can I say I don’t like people who do it to my culture and then do it to someone else's?" "Uh ... hm. I honestly don't know." "I honestly have never even thought about it." "That's, like, a really touchy subject. I don't like, to, like, make an assumption about that when I'm not Irish." "Honestly,...

    House Intelligence Committee Republicans' announcement that it is ending its investigation of possible collusion between Trump and Russia to rig the 2016 presidential election because "there is no evidence" enraged House Intel Committee leaker Adam Schiff (D-Calif). "There's plenty of evidence that the Republicans refuse to acknowledge," Schiff maintained. "So blatant was the conspiracy that during a televised debate Trump brazenly signaled the Russians to reveal the 30,000 emails that Secretary Clinton had erased from her computer. And lo and behold, these emails started showing up in Wikileaks publications." "On top of that, the Russians punked Sec. Clinton by selling...

    You knew this was going to happen. democrat butts are just oozing hurt. And as I predicted, they are all firing off salvos at Donald Trump. Witness: The message of March 16, 2018, is that President Trump demands retribution in its most merciless form for official mistake or misconduct. Noted. — David Frum (@davidfrum) March 17, 2018 This nitwit actually threatens the President. Gloat now, but you will be fired soon. And it’s not going to be done cowardly, as you’ve done to so many who’ve served you. There’s a storm gathering, Mr. President, and it’s going to wipe out you and...

    We're all expecting and anticipating Hillary's descent into madness. Given that, I'm thinking a tie-in to Lady Macbeth might be appropriate. No time soon, perhaps. Months, years? Yet madness will overtake her I think. With apologies to William Shakespeare... At the beginning of Act 5 of Bubba Macbeth, Lady Hillary, who has apparently dropped out of the story is brought back upon the stage that we may see how she too pays the penalty of her crimes. The strong will that enabled her to defy her woman's nature has broken down utterly; left alone in her castle while Bubba is...

    Hat Tip: H. Gregory Badger Enigmas (1) Isn't it weird that in America, our flag and our culture offend so many people, but our benefits don't? (2) How can the federal government ask U.S. citizens to pay back student loans, when illegal aliens are receiving a free education? (3) Only in America are legal citizens labeled "racists" and "Nazis," but illegal aliens are called "Dreamers”. (4) Liberals say, "If confiscating all guns saves just one life, it's worth it". Well then, if deporting all illegals saves just one life, wouldn't that be worth it? (5) I can't quite figure out...

    California high school history teacher Julianne Benzel is on paid suspension after engaging her students in a discussion where she shared her perspective on the politics of organized protests in anticipation of the National School Walkout, which took place on the morning of March 14. “We had a dialogue in class about it in Thursday and Friday. And today I received the call. So I am aghast,” Benzel told CBS Sacramento. Benzel said that she questioned her students as to the appropriateness of schools sanctioning a protest against gun violence and whether the school administration was willing to allow protests...

If this godforsaken island of perfidy is ever going to be habitable by decent men there are a lot more snakes that need a one way ticket out of town. But nice start.On another St. Patrick’s day note I feel I should warn those of you wandering off to a bar to celebrate the day with a beer and perhaps a wee dram chaser: along with the usual green brews this year’s on tap selections include a new “glitter beer”...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Down goes McCabe! Down goes McCabe! Down goes McCabe! – Sweaty swamp snake Andrew McCabe got his formal walking papers from Attorney General Jeff Sessions last night, one day before he turns 50 and his lucrative federal pension was about to kick in. Despite the buttoned-down bureaucratic nature of the decision, based as it was on an Inspector General investigation and a firing recommendation from the DOJ Office of Professional Responsibility, the fake news media went into full fakery mode, declaring that this firing of a single well-documented bad actor means that...

    This week, various schools across the country sponsored "walkouts" in memory of the 17 students and faculty members killed in the Feb 14th massacre carried out by Nikolas Cruz at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. In other schools students took it upon themselves to walkout without permission. New York, Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) warned school administrators not to punish students who engaged in unsanctioned walkouts, asserting that "it would be wrong. Threatening to discipline students for participating in the peaceful demonstrations is not only inappropriate, it is unconstitutional. Demonstrations against gun violence are protected by the First...

    Cook County GOP Chairman Sean Morrison is attempting a first time ever-seen tactic to overrule or undermine all of the Republican Township Committees that chose to endorse counter to his primary picks with a sample ballot that hit mailboxes Friday. In the mailing, Morrison writes in a small box a comment that leads unknowing Republicans to believe that any other ballots - possibly including local township organization ballots - are illegal. Wheeling Township GOP Committeeman Ruth O'Connell told Illinois Review, "This mailing undermines the work we've been doing in Wheeling Township and my authority as a committeeman. We endorsed Jeanne...

    Every now and then, abortionists will admit publicly to the horrifying reality of what they do to unborn babies. On Sunday, Leah Torres, a Utah abortionist who is active on Twitter, responded with gruesome detail to someone criticizing her work. When someone asked Torres if she hears the screams of the babies who she aborts, she replied: “You know fetuses can’t scream, right? I transect the cord 1st so there’s really no opportunity, if they’re even far enough along to have a larynx. I won’t apologize for performing medicine. I’m also a ‘uterus ripper outer,’ if that’s how you’d like...

    Andrew McCabe is facing his day of reckoning. And it's about time. The McCabe story goes back a ways. It's necessary to hark back in time to fully understand the dynamics. Terry McAuliffe  and Hillary Clinton fatally compromised McCabe in 2015: By now you know that long time Clinton confidant and Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe used $467,500 of his PAC money to “help” Jill McCabe, the wife of FBI agent Andrew McCabe in her bid for Congress. The Virginia Democratic Party, virtually controlled by McAuliffe, tossed in another $200,000. The money began flowing into the McCabe campaign coffers, in another one of...

    During an appearance on Fox News, the father of one of the victims at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida said that he hasn’t watched the newly released video of school resource officer Scot Peterson standing outside and refusing to enter the school during the Feb. 14. attack. According to The U.K. Independent, the clip shows Peterson, a Broward County deputy, traveling toward the building in a golf cart after being informed the shooting started. Later, he can be seen standing outside the school as students filed by. Andrew Pollack, the father of one of the students killed...

    The murder of Litvinenko, the author of "The FSB Blows Up Russia" says, was like the bombings of the apartment houses in 1999: everything pointed in one direction, but it was circumstantial rather than definitive; and thus his death became as it were “part of the psychological war of Russia and the West and its own compatriots. But the special operation carried out against Skripal “has different goals.” It is not excluded, that Moscow wanted to test the personality of the British prime minister who had to be forced to pursue the Litvinenko case but now is prepared to be...

    (With all the crap swirling around about the gun debate, I'm unable to let it rest.) As per usual in the wake of yet another massive shooting, this time in Parkland Fla., there is the new rally of cries for gun control or whatever they're calling it these days. It is yet another example of the endless false narratives that grip this fine country. With guns it goes like this, gun control works, this is an indisputable fact. If implemented it would solve this problem. But the damn republicans, the NRA, big business and big money, (who all know gun...
