    Am Shooting Journal ^ | 11/17/2017 | J Hines
    Point man on a tactical team in the military or Law Enforcement SWAT teams are usually assigned the “shield”. This lucky person has the extraordinary fun time to lug around a 20 pound Kevlar and peep through the small windows just to shoot one handed with their pistol. Though the shield has multiple purpose, it is a very clunky thing to use. But, not bad as a bullet sponger, again as the person carrying one its a bitch if you’re taking some rounds. Its a good thing that manufacturers are always thinking to innovate to help make things a little...

    Professional MMA fighter and UFC Veteran, Jake Shields, was forced to rescue a civilian who was being severely beaten by “anti-fascist” rioters in Berkeley, California, on Wednesday, after police officers allegedly refused to intervene. Realizing that law enforcement officers were not going to help the man who was being cornered and violently attacked, Shields took the moment into his own hands, and fought off the mob of rioters while he helped the injured and bloodied man to safety. “The show got cancelled so I was kind of checking things out,” said Shields in an interview with Breitbart Tech. “Obviously it...

    Friday on PBS's "News Hour," syndicated columnist Mark Shields pointed out, "among young Republicans, 61 percent of Republicans -- young Republicans under the age of 30 are in favor of same sex marriage." New York Times columnist David Brooks "applauded," the GOP for "doing absolutely the right thing in withdrawing" and letting the country have its way. Brooks said "I sort of applaud the minimalism here. Sometimes you let the country have its way and you don't try to determine the shape of the country, you sort of modestly step back and let the country figure out what it believes....

    If you have often imagined yourself piloting your X-Wing fighter on an attack run on the Death Star, you'll be reassured that University of Leicester students have demonstrated that your shields could take whatever the Imperial fleet can throw at you. The only drawback is that you won't be able to see a thing outside of your starfighter. In anticipation of Star Wars Day on 4 May, three fourth-year Physics students at the University have proven that shields, such as those seen protecting spaceships in the Star Wars film series, would not only be scientifically feasible, they have also shown...

    For many of us, our main understanding of the American South, slavery and the Civil War derives from countless viewings of ‘Gone with the Wind.’ New research has revealed that Michelle Obama’s forefathers include Charles Shields, a slave-owner of Irish descent, who lived in the very same county in Georgia State where the fictional Scarlet O’Hara’s family lived. This is the remarkable story of how Charles Shields and a slave girl called Melvina became ancestors of the first African-American to become First Lady of the United States.

    Yesterday, I showed you how Slate's Dave Weigel and NBC's Peter Alexander worked together to journOlist away the Romney campaign's compelling and troubling evidence that the Obama White House has used billions in taxpayer dollars to pay off campaign supporters. Today, I'm going to show you how the media is protecting Barack Obama from paying a political price, not only for these alleged payoffs, but also for Obama's off-teleprompter statement in which he said, "If you got a business, you didn’t build that -- somebody else made that happen." On offense, the Romney campaign had hoped to capitalize on the...

    Since the Occupy protests began, reports of demonstrators placing themselves and even their small children in harm’s way have surfaced near-daily. This instance is no exception. MRCTV reporters happened to be at a D.C. Metro station and witnessed a group of Occupiers fight with convention center security guards while trying to block its entrance…with small children. Watch as protesters place the children right in the middle of the altercation while one Occupier says that since the children are hers, the action is justifiable. Meanwhile, other demonstrators seem to think that using children as human shields is permissible simply because they...

    Charles Krauthammer on Friday marvelously demonstrated just how in the pockets of Barack Obama America's news media are. After claiming on PBS's "Inside Washington" that we now have a "completely compliant, pliant, supine press accepting every leak out of the White House," he silenced the entire panel by asking them to name one specific cut to entitlements the President has proposed (video follows with transcript and commentary): VIDEO CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: [The President] talks a good game. “Oh, I’m prepared to do entitlements, I’m ready to do entitlements.” Not once has he ever enunciated in public - other than all these...

Not a bit of it. Whenever the astronauts look out of the window, they find themselves mesmerised by the glowing, shimmering sphere of plasma that surrounds their spacecraft. Hard to believe that the modest electromagnet at the heart of their ship can produce something so beautiful. Not that the magnet's raison d'ętre is aesthetic, of course. Its main function is to keep the astronauts from a slow, horrible death by radiation sickness....

    Give Missouri state Sen. Chuck Purgason credit for being an outspoken critic of the fuzzy logic being used to promote a huge taxpayer subsidy for Ford’s Claycomo plant. Purgason isn’t going quietly Monday, the day he was ousted as chairman of the Government Accountability and Fiscal Oversight Committee, with the help of Senate President Pro Tem Charlie Shields. Said Purgason in a hot-off-the-press statement: I guess (Shields) doesn’t like the way I’m holding government accountable. Ouch.

In the special Michael Jackson commemorative issue of Rolling Stone hitting stands this week, the model-actress reveals the King of Pop asked her to marry him — more than once. “I would say, ‘You have me for the rest of your life, you don’t need to marry me, I’m going to go on and do my own life and have my own marriage and...

    Absolute moral authority? "A Missouri mother says she will do “whatever it takes” to stop former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee from becoming president, because he freed the man who went on to rape and murder her daughter, Carol Sue Shields (pictured). “I can’t imagine anybody wanting somebody like that running the country,” Lois Davidson of Adrian, Mo., told the Blotter on Wayne Dumond was initially sentenced to life plus 25 years for raping a 17-year-old Arkansas high school cheerleader.

    Rick Moran has a post up exploring Mike Huckabee’s record as Governor of Arkansas in which he concludes that although Huckabee is a social conservative he most certainly isn’t a ‘real’ conservative. “While Huckabee claims to have cut taxes 90 times totaling $378 million, the state’s Department of Finance and Administration says he also raised taxes 21 times that brought in a whopping $883 million,” Rick writes. “Under his ‘conservative’ governance, the ‘average Arkansan’s tax burden’ went “from $1,969 in the fiscal year that ended June 30, 1997, to $2,902 in the fiscal year that ended June 30, 2005, including...
