  • Christmas is not Pagan or ‘Holiday’

    World News Bureau ^ | December 5, 2016 | Gina Miller
    Each year around this time, in Facebook posts and elsewhere, we are certain to be lectured by well-meaning Christians on the "sinfulness" of celebrating Christmas. Their arguments can be persuasive. "In the Bible, God never told us to celebrate Christmas," they say. "Christmas has its roots in paganism," they say. So that must mean we're just dupes celebrating a pagan ritual when we ignorantly think we're gratefully celebrating the birth of Jesus. Who wants to celebrate what God never told us to celebrate and which supposedly has its roots in paganism? Not me! But are those things really true? While...

    At both Harvard and Columbia this fall we’ve seen how students who dare to privately act out against PC standards are inspiring crazed nuclear strikes from campus administrators. This disproportionate punishment is, in turn, bound to create both more rebels flouting norms and more wusses and tattletales passive-aggressively seizing power by parading their phony wounds.

    A year ago, the House of the 131st Ohio General Assembly voted to pass HB 48.  It passed the House 68 to 29. It has been languishing there ever since.   House Bill 48 is the prominent gun law reform bill pending in Ohio.  It is a modest bill that makes only a few reforms.  It removes silly prohibitions on permit holders from carrying concealed guns in day care centers, in the unsecured areas of airports, and other "gun free zones".   It passed the House by over 2-1 (68-29) on 17 November,  and has 42 cosponsors in the...

    Milo Yiannopoulos, a Trump-supporting provocateur who works for Breitbart, was set to speak at North Dakota State University but apparently the event has been canceled due to security concerns with #NoDAPL protesters. Specifically, NDSU raised the security fee: The event which was scheduled for Friday, December 16th, was suddenly hit with a large security fee increase however unlike many other universities that used security fees as an attempt to censor MILO, the threat by Dakota Access Pipeline Protesters to disrupt the event posed a viable risk to those in attendance. “Unfortunately the state of North Dakota has a issue with...

    By total coincidence I watched two earlier episodes of the Great Indoors last night. It's pretty harsh about Millennials -- they're effeminate, they're lazy, they're addicted to their phones, they want participation trophies just for "trying really hard," they're arrested development children, they get their feelings hurt by everything, etc. After the main character made a Millennial cry, he was taken to a meeting with Human Resources and corporate counsel. The Human Resources woman explained that Millennials are very "fragile" (I think that was the word) and that their are actual corporate consultants who train corporations about how to work...

    Four years of pain. As I’ve pointed out before, the Democrats didn’t just lose an election in November. Their defeat wasn’t as simple as one presidential race. As I wrote on Election Day, this one was for all the marbles. Generations of liberal progressive ideology - both past and future - were on the 2016 ballot. Had Democrats won, they would have owned the Supreme Court and the concept of the United States as a constitutionally-limited republic would have been decimated. Instead, the left was roundly rejected.

    Things work differently now.

So here comes the new president, not following convention because he has little use for it. The political class, which despises this man and refuses to accept that there could possibly be anything wrong with the way they’ve always done things, reacts to the new president’s every eschewing of convention by proclaiming: He’s so stupid!

    Under the presidency of Barack Obama, border patrol agents have been diverted from their duty of securing the borders from border violators, gangs, and cartels that traffic in drugs and even human beings. U.S. border patrol agents have, instead, become uniformed baby sitters. That’s according to Border Patrol Chief Mark Morgan who came to U.S. Customs and Border Protection after a 30-year miltary career that included FBI operations in Iraq and leading the agency’s global command for anti-terrorism and border security operations. In a testimony to the Senate Homeland Security Committee he gave lawmakers the disturbing details on what’s going...

    The Village Gun is my name for an old Springfield 84-C.  My father acquired the rifle and a state of the art Weaver 3/4 inch straight tube scope for $7.50 during the Depression. I have written in previous articles that the Village Gun was used by my father and the neighbors for deer hunting. The Village Gun wasn't primarily used for deer hunting. There are dozens of things a .22 rifle is used for on a farm at the edge of wild country.  The Village gun was probably used for most of them, over the roughly 60 years of...

    Democrats are no longer the party of the working class, but the party of radical progressives, illegal aliens and special interests. In the aftermath of another devastating electoral loss, Democrats have not learned their lessons very well. In the U.S. Senate, Democrats elected 66-year old Chuck Schumer of New York as their Minority Leader, replacing the outgoing Harry Reid of Nevada. Schumer will offer more East Coast liberal leadership to a party that desperately needs to move ideologically to the center and geographically to the country’s heartland. In an even worse move, House Democrats re-elected super liberal Nancy Pelosi of...

    While the most of the country has voted to veer away from the transformation of America spearheaded by President Obama, California has vowed to stay the course, at least on the environmental front. In terms of air quality, the state has enacted new regulations to limit how much methane gas cows are allowed to emit while farting. California Air Resources Board science adviser Ryan McCarthy called the attempt “truly ambitious. No one really knows how we’re going to get this done. The State Assembly deserves credit for taking on a task that may well be impossible.” “The obvious first response...

    Hillary won a plurality, nothing more, but lost the election. That's the way it is. I am quite fascinated with the obsession the Left currently has with the popular vote for President. As usual this is a matter of expediency, desperation to get their own way given the results of the election, and the usual public deception for how our system actually works. There certainly isn’t a shred of principle involved. So let’s investigate this a bit. We are a Republic, thank God, not a Democracy, so the popular vote is irrelevant to presidential elections. It simply doesn’t matter, it...

The deceased “El Comandante” Castro left behind a huge fortune, a private island called Caya Piedra, mansions, a marina with his private yacht called Aquarama, bank accounts, an alleged gold mine, and thousands of worthless Marxist speeches.

    Elections have consequences. The presidential election of Donald Trump has been occupying most of the news space. The gun culture did very well in state and local elections.  In Missouri, a Republican, Eric Greitens, replaces former Governor Nixon.  Governor Nixon was decidedly anti-Second Amendment.  An omnibus gun law reform bill was passed over his veto in Missouri last year. That bill included permitless or "Consititutional" carry. Originally the bill contained a watered down provision for the exercise of Second Amendment rights at public institutions of higher learning. Current Missouri law allows campus administrations to ban weapons on campus.  All...

It’s a very narrow plurality of Dems who say so — 36/35, with another 29 percent saying they’re not sure.

    The Marine Corps is considering suppressing all small arms. Military organizations have historically been slow to adopt new technologies.

Suppressors have been commonly used by sportsmen around the world for decades long before widespread adoption by any military. The United States is the exception, due to irrational regulation. The Marine Corp is in the process of equipping an entire battalion with suppressed small arms. From ameriforce.net: In...

It was the only possible explanation for Hillary’s stunning loss to a candidate Jones accused of being a bully and a bigot. What a difference 3 weeks have made! Suddenly it was the “arrogance and elitism” of the Democrat Party and the Clinton campaign that were responsible for the defeat no one on the left had expected. Maybe Jones no longer believes Trump to be a “bully” or...

For a number of reasons, the economics on which the “buy local” movement rests is remarkably weak.

Some said that she should be “thrown to the dogs” or “beheaded” for violating the country’s rules for women. But others, numbering in the hundreds, came to her defense and even praised her “bravery” for going out in public uncovered and for sharing the...

    Jake Hamby has posted these photographs of a small shop manufactured .50 caliber single shot, scoped rifle.  It was captured from ISIS forces in Iraq. Many on the Internets are disparaging the rifle, characterizing it as a "face bomb" waiting to go off.  Several good views of the rifle are shown in the short Youtube montage below. Link to Youtube It is a mistake to judge a weapon by the exterior finish. Sure, the superb craftsmen at pre-1940 commercial Mauser, or Colt before 1970, are known for their excellent polish and bluing.  If you look at war production, you...

    In July Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe stood on the platform of a train station in Alexandria to announce that the U.S. Department of Transportation had granted $165 million for the Atlantic Gateway project.While this is a multimodal project featuring rail, bus, and highway improvements, it was clearly the latter that most enthused the governor. At one point during his remarks, he declared that because of the road projects, “Today, the congestion is going to end!”The primary focus of the highway improvements will be an extension of the HOT (high occupancy toll) lanes on I-95 and I-395. The only other speaker...

    Progressive media pundit Nomiki Konst is under fire for her comments accusing Ohio State University Officer Alan Horujko of having “rushed to judgment” by shooting terror suspect Abdul Razak Ali Artan, who carried out an attack at the school this past Monday. (video below) Fox News host Megyn Kelly had asked Konst for her thoughts on the following tweet from Democrat Tim Kaine, which prematurely described the incident as an act of gun violence. Konst responded by saying, “Senator Kaine should not have rushed to judgment, should have waited for the facts to come in, as should have the police...

    At Donald Trump's first post-victory "Thank You" rally in Cincinnati, Ohio, the president-elect outlined his "America First" policy. He said that attempts to "separate us by race, by age, by income, by place of birth, and by geography" were over. He said: "Now is the time to embrace the one thing that truly unites us. You know what that is? America." He continued: "We hear a lot of talk about how we are becoming a 'globalized world.' But the relationships that people value in this country are local." "There is no global anthem. No global currency. No certificate of global...

    If I offended you by calling you stupid, I’m really sorry, but I thought you already knew! Everyone has a constitutional right to be stupid but politicians have abused the privilege. Liberals/progressives have been taking control of America’s institutions for over a hundred years: churches, public schools, universities, entertainment, politics, etc. So how has that worked out? Are we better off now than we were 25 years ago? Churches are supposed to be the moral compass of this nation but the churches have lost their way. Most of the mainline denominational churches are led by educated fools who are afraid...

    "Tax returns?” We ain't got no tax returns. We don't need no tax returns.

Debbie Stabenow of Michigan, Patty Murray of Washington and Ron Wyden of Oregon will hold a press conference at noon to press for a Senate rules change requiring all Cabinet nominees to submit three years of their tax returns to the panel charged with reviewing their...

    If after all the devious machinations Trump still wins this will be used by the Sandernistas and the Clintonites to cry rigged system The recount in Wisconsin and the coming ones in Michigan and Pennsylvania will not change the outcomes in any of those states.  Even though the party of Mayor Daley, Boss Tweed, and their big city machines are famous for winning recounts by finding bags of votes in candy store basements no recount has ever changed thousands of votes let alone tens of thousands.  I do not believe changing the outcome is the purpose. It is instead changing...
