  • As NRA membership wanes, America's largest black gun group is thriving

    cbs ^ | September 11, 2019
    The country's largest and best known gun rights association, the NRA, is losing board members amid a spate of deadly mass shootings. But another, lesser-known gun organization is thriving: the National African American Gun Association, the largest minority gun group in the country. The group was founded by Phillip Smith, who fondly remembers the first time he fired his 9 mm pistol at a gun range. "I felt free," Smith said. "I had a chance to kind of have some power in my hands." Smith formed the first chapter of the National African American Gun Association, or NAAGA, in Atlanta....

    The Drive ^ | May 23, 2020 | Caleb Jacobs
    It's no longer news that texting while driving is incredibly dangerous—it's common sense. What's more, filming a high-speed run with one hand on the wheel and the other on your iPhone is on another level of stupidity. That didn't stop this Audi RS6 driver from mashing the accelerator and videoing their drive to 200 miles per hour on a public British roadway, though. And if that wasn't brazen enough, the clip was then uploaded to Twitter for everyone to see. Police are now looking for the daredevil who drove 202 miles per hour on the M23 south of Crawley, as...

    Root for America ^ | May 24, 2020 | Wayne Allyn Root
    Think about an election where a ballot is sent to a person regardless of eligibility; to an address they may not live at anymore; signed by someone else; picked up and delivered by a Democrat campaign operative; and still counted. If Democrats got their way, that is what would happen in my home state of Nevada this June, and nationwide in November’s presidential election. This is clearly a trial run by Democrats to see if they can get away with “THE SCAM OF THE CENTURY.” With one goal in mind- stealing all future U.S. elections. Keep in mind, even Mexico...

    The COVID Can Go To Suit. Or Can It? The COVID Can Go To Suit, Or Can It? By: Frank J. Morelli, Esq. Contributor The one thing you will find that is bipartisan is lawyer bashing. The reason is that lawyers work on both sides of the isle. They defend rights. They attack rights. They make money ether way, and that is what everyone hates. They make money if they win or if they lose. But what most people don’t seem to comprehend is that so-called frivolous lawsuits are not filed by competent attorneys. No, there are checks and balances...

    The French have a saying that has its origin and meaning in revolution: "We obey tyrants until we hang them from lamp posts". Later-on the Guillotine was invented to carry out this principle more effectively. Fortunately, in America we have an option to the annihilation of tyranny by lamp post. We have the Constitution of the United States of America that guarantees our freedom,the right to live, equality under the law, the separation of powers, and elections to throw the tyrants out.

    By late March, nearly every country in Europe had closed schools and businesses, restricted travel and ordered citizens to stay home. But one country stood out for its decision to stay open: Sweden. The country’s moderated response to the coronavirus outbreak has drawn praise from some U.S. politicians, who see Sweden as a possible model for the United States as it begins to reopen. “We need to observe with an open mind what went on in Sweden, where the kids kept going to school,” Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, a Republican, said at a hearing Tuesday. But while Sweden has...

    Friday [Sept 28, 2008] ushered in a surreal new chapter in the duel between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney over how to approach relations with Israel and Iran’s nuclear program, as both candidates hopped on phone calls with Benjamin Netanyahu a day after the Israeli prime minister delivered a fiery U.N. address on red lines for Iran in New York. During Obama’s conversation with Netanyahu (see photo above), the White House announced, "the two leaders underscored that they are in full agreement on the shared goal of preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon." Romney told reporters that while he...

    A Fresno, California waffle restaurant dared to open its doors for business this weekend to the delight of a long line of customers, who waited up to two hours for the “privilege” of willingly spending their money in a business happy to serve them breakfast on Mother’s Day. This freedom of voluntary transaction is the core of what we used to call our free society. But in an America paralyzed by fear – ramped up by a mainstream media that churns out propaganda at a level unparalleled in history – no one is allowed to enjoy themselves. Thankfully everyone carries...

    A white NYPD cop who claims she was harassed by a black supervisor for dating an African-American man told an administrative judge on Monday that the cutting remarks left her "with a pit in my stomach.” Officer Vanessa Weinbel’s boyfriend was not a member of the NYPD, but the white cop’s relationship with a black man incensed her black supervisor so much that the Queens lieutenant wouldn’t stop harping about it, Weinbel said. Among the insults Weinbel claims she endured from Lt. Rasheena Huffman at Police Service Area 9 in Flushing was that black men only liked her because she...

Strong as Whitmer said governors are “having a moment right now” but that, unlike her, other governors are getting “cool nicknames.” “Trump refers to me as ‘that woman from Michigan,’” she said. “But I’m not offended because I am proud to be from Michigan. And ‘that woman’ is also what Trump calls his wife.” She continued by giving advice for protesters to safely exercise their First Amendment rights, including to stay home, maintain social distancing and wear a mask outside. “I...

    On Friday, the World Health Organization reiterated that the novel coronavirus, which caused a major pandemic in the world, is "natural in origin". Frankly speaking, that's not a fresh conclusion. As early as in January, there had been wide consensus among scientists that the novel coronavirus could not possibly have come from man-made sources and that its origin was definitely in nature. A few Indian scientists claimed it might have been "man-made" in origin in their shared paper on the pre-publishing website BioRxiv, but they soon withdrew that paper and apologized for that groundless guess. Yet some US politicians have...

    Bruce Springsteen has said that the coronavirus pandemic has laid bare the inequalities in wealth and health of America. Speaking during his DJ set on Sirus XM’s E Street Radio, Springsteen reflected on the human cost of the pandemic. “Franklin Delano Roosevelt said liberty requires opportunity to make a living, a decent living according to the standard of the time. A living which gives a man or a woman not only enough to live by, but something to live for.” The 70-year-old continued: “Now the current pandemic has laid bare the inequalities in wealth and in health that plague our...
