    Many of you that are gun geeks understand the basics of rifling can skip this article. This is for the average gun enthusiasts and newbies that enjoy shooting and want a little more understanding of how a barrel twist rate can affect accuracy. So does barrel twist rate affect accuracy on an AR15? The short technical answer is that barrel twist starts the bullet spinning at a given rate to stabilize the bullet. The rate has to be constant for the utmost accuracy. On the opposite end of the spectrum – Decreasing the twist rate will almost certainly result in...

    Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez on Thursday denied allegations he plagiarized his doctoral thesis as he battles a raft of problems in a week that has seen him lose his health minister over similar reports of academic irregularities. “The information appearing in certain media claiming the existence of plagiarism in my doctoral thesis is absolutely FALSE,” Socialist Sánchez tweeted just two days after Carmen Montón quit as health minister amid reports of irregularities in how she obtained her degree. Spanish media said Montón had been awarded grades without attending classes and that her final project contained plagiarized passages — charges...

    If the biggest racism problem in the U.S. is whites being racist against blacks, then how come the rate of “whites killed by blacks” is more than 12 times the rate of “blacks killed by whites”? As I’ve pointed out many times before, the Black Lives Matter protestors don’t care about the 93% of black murder victims who are killed by other blacks.Here’s a webpage from the FBI that gives even more info.Someone took the info from that FBI link and created this chart. Please note that all of the numbers are per capita based on the murderer’s race. (I don’t...

    Three judges of the UK's High Court heard the appeal of Tommy Robinson's lawyers in London today. They said they will rule by the end of the month. Robinson was arrested in Leeds, England May 25th and sent to jail within hours for contempt of court. He was livestreaming a video outside of a child sex abuse trial involving Muslim defendants. There have been a rash of such cases reported in the UK with authorities accused of trying to hide the cases from the public, limit punishment in cases discovered and even ignoring situations involving sex abuse of children by...

    This is a summary from many sources, the first of which is the full text of Robert Mueller III's Inditement of July 13, 2018. (I won't quote that Inditement here, but you should take the time to read it, so as to get an understanding of the transcript below.) Most important is HOW those 12 Russian Agents were identified, and how that evidence was obtained. Also in question is, "Does the United States actually have the ability to track all of this evidence; or is it just built upon fiction and is unprovable ?" And IF the evidence is...

    The barrage of rockets into Israel from Gaza continued into the early morning hours of Sunday. It all began Friday night and Israel has responded with air strikes into Gaza aimed at targets of the Hamas terrorist organization that rules there. Four Israelis were injured in the attacks by some 200 plus rockets including three in a synagogue on the Sabbath. Two were killed in Gaza in the Israeli attacks in response. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says that if Hamas didn't get the message from Saturday's military response, they will get it on Sunday. The Israel Defense Forces have...

    It’s not just the wrongly decided Roe V. Wade decision that liberals fear is in jeopardy with the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh. They also fear their crusade against “semi-automatic” weapons may be exposed as the semantic, visual, and judicial fraud that it is: "If you care about common sense gun violence protection, Judge Kavanaugh is your worst nightmare. If you want background checks, a ban on assault weapons, or any of the other common sense measures that we have in Connecticut, or California or New York, Judge Kavanaugh will strike them down." said Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Connecticut, who used to...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden said in an interview published Tuesday that he will not run for president in 2020. “It makes me feel guilty about not wanting to [run for president],” Biden told Josh Rogin of the Washington Post during a wide-ranging interview on U.S.-EU relations under the Trump administration. “But it doesn’t make me want to. I’m not looking to live in the White House, I’ve seen it up close.” “But all kidding aside, I don’t know what I’m going to do,” the 75-year-old added. During a March 2017 event at Colgate University, Biden said he was “fairly...

    US First Lady Melania Trump has been caught up in another plagiarism row, following the launch of her new online safety for children campaign on Monday. A booklet put out by Mrs Trump bore a striking resemblance to one published under the Obama administration. The text and graphics of the "Be Best" booklet were nearly identical to those in the previous edition. In 2016 Mrs Trump was accused of plagiarising parts of a speech from a 2008 address by Michelle Obama.

    Robert Fisk of the British "Independent" newspaper, a veteran of decades of reporting from the Middle East, made it to Douma, Syria and has sent back his report from there. "This is the story of a town called Douma, a ravaged, stinking place of smashed apartment blocks-and of an underground clinic whose images of suffering allowed three of the Western world's most powerful nations to bomb Syria last week. There's even a friendly doctor in a green coat who, when I track him down in the very same clinic, cheerfully tells me that the "gas" videotape which horrified the world-despite...
  • Too Funny: Mueller Patched Together Much of His ‘Muh Russia’ Indictment from Old News Articles…

    A large number of people who read the Mueller 13-person Russian Indictment released on Friday noted a transparent lack of actual substance. Today the absence of substance turns toward the hilarious. Much like the heavily touted sketchy 2017 Joint Analysis Report (the infamous “14 U.S. intelligence agencies report“) was really only three political intel agencies, FBI (Comey), CIA (Brennan) and ODNI (Clapper), Friday’s Russian indictment had a lot of pages and citations but in the aggregate was an assembly of nothing-burger reporting of various insignificant social media events. Today the absurdity of the report becomes even more laughable. As Gateway...

    For years scholars have debated what inspired William Shakespeare’s writings. Now, with the help of software typically used by professors to nab cheating students, two writers have discovered an unpublished manuscript they believe the Bard of Avon consulted to write “King Lear,” “Macbeth,” “Richard III,” “Henry V” and seven other plays. The news has caused Shakespeareans to sit up and take notice.

    Plagiarism is considered academic dishonesty and a breach of journalistic ethics; however, many famous authors such as Oscar Wilde, Shakespeare, Voltaire, Goethe, Rousseau, Alexandre Dumas, Jack London, T. S. Eliot, and many others were accused of plagiarism. This week The Daily Caller and other media sources reported repeated plagiarism from the liberal The Daily Beast by veteran reporter Lizzie Crocker. Lizzie was fired but often the stealing from others is only worth a slap on the wrist. Often, a very slight slap on the wrist. Famous historian Stephen Ambrose wrote Band of Brothers, and Crazy Horse and Custer,and award-winning biographies...

    First Daughter Ivanka Trump was in Hyderabad, India this week touting female entrepreneurship. Too bad she wasted the opportunity by plagiarizing much of her remarks from one of her previous speeches, Newsweek declared Wednesday in its piece, "Ivanka Trump Plagiarizes One of Her Own Speeches in India."The Newsweek editors regretted that "the breadth of her talking points were recycled from a previous speech she gave during a foreign trip earlier this month."  That other "foreign trip" appears to be the one she made to Tokyo, Japan. They pulled some specific excerpts to prove they had caught Ivanka red handed. "When women...

    Newsweek really jumped the shark Thursday when they claimed that Ivanka Trump “plagiarize[d] one of her own speeches” during her trip to India.Newsweek bashed Ivanka for reusing lines from some of her old speeches. Of course, that’s not plagiarism, as plagiarism requires the words or ideas be taken from someone else.Recycling speeches and parts of speeches is pretty standard for people who have a lot of speaking engagements. “Several lines the 36-year-old delivered Tuesday had been directly pulled from her poorly attended November 2 speech in Tokyo, where she attended the World Assembly for Women alongside Japanese President Shinzo Abe,” Newsweek writer...
