    Heresy: Fundamentals Combat Riflecraft, Part Three (Or, “Two Will Do….Except When It Won’t!) June 11, 2013 There is a false truth present in the “tactical” shooting community that has been around for decades. This lie goes back to the old mythology of “one-shot stops” and the mantra of “I’ll only carry a pistol if it starts with point-four.” That lie is the misguided faith in a two-shot default response to a bad guy problem that requires a ballistic solution. This used to be taught as the “double tap.” Based on conversations I’ve had with supposedly “trained” tactical shooters, including numerous “instructors,”...

  • A Triple Threat to Patients [New GOP Congress needs to pull plug on TAP, CER, & Berwick]

    If and when a new Congress comes in, the fastest way to eliminate Obamacare will be by shutting down its "operating system" the Centers for Medicare and Medicare Services and investigating its unconfirmed director, Donald Berwick. And it should start by pulling the plug on Berwick's Triple Aim Program and the billions of dollars he has for implementing it. The Triple Aim Program (TAP) focuses on "improving the patient experience, improving population health and lowering per capita health care costs." Berwick claims that all three are achievable not through consumer driven healthcare. In various speeches and slide presentations, Berwick claims...

    MINNEAPOLIS - The city of Minneapolis is spending nearly $200,000 to sell something that would seem to sell itself: tap water. With her bottle of water in hand, Susan Davis was feeling hot and a little guilty. “It would be great if everyone did drink the tap water,” said Davis. “I think the tap water in Minneapolis is just fine.” Tap Minneapolis is the city's new web site, and PR campaign to promote the city's tap water. But unlike tap water, it's not cheap. The web site costs $75,000. The total cost paid to the PR firm was $180,000.

    Taliban tap into soldiers' mobile phones By Sophie Borland Last Updated: 2:20am BST 22/08/2007 Taliban insurgents are tapping into the mobile phones of British soldiers in Afghanistan and making threatening calls to their families, according to The Sun. They are thought to be downloading numbers stored in the phones and then terrorising friends and relatives of the servicemen by calling them with threats. One wife of an RAF soldier based in Afghanistan claimed to have received a phonecall in the middle of the night telling her that her husband was dead despite the fact he was alive and well. Servicemen...
  • Local tap water bubbles up in restaurants

    At a small but growing number of sustainably inclined Bay Area restaurants, bottled water has become as much of an outcast as farmed salmon and out-of-season tomatoes. Instead of bottled water, diners now are served free carafes of -- gasp! -- tap water. It's filtered and comes still or sparkling, fizzed up by a soda-fountain-style carbonating machine. Incanto, in San Francisco's Noe Valley, and Poggio, in Sausalito, pioneered the trend four years ago. But for several years, no other restaurants wanted to give up popular -- and profitable -- bottled water. Then Nopa, the San Francisco North of Panhandle hot...

    See No Jihad, Hear No Jihad By FrontPage MagazineFrontPageMagazine.com | February 5, 2007In a decision that reveals the state of denial on American campuses, the editorial board of the Georgica Tech student paper – The Georgia Tech Technique – has rejected an ad from the Terrorism Awareness Project warning students about the threat that radical Islam poses to America. Nor is it the first campus publication to chill open debate on radical Islamic terrorism. Entitled “What Americans Need To Know About Jihad,” the ad warns students that “the goal of jihad is world domination,” and that “Jihad’s battle cry is ‘Death...

    LONDON - British police arrested three men - including a newspaper section editor - Tuesday in an investigation that began with complaints from Prince Charles' office about possible phone-tapping, police and the paper said. Police said they did not believe the phones of any members of the royal family had been tapped. But other public figures may have had their calls intercepted, raising potential security issues, the police said. They refused to specify who. Police did not identify those who were arrested, but the News of the World tabloid said Clive Goodman, editor of its section on royalty, was among...

    WASHINGTON - The Energy Department is prepared to provide oil from the government's emergency supplies if a refinery requests it because of the disruption of supplies from Alaska, a department spokesman said Monday. "We're taking a very serious look at this," said spokesman Craig Stevens, referring to the loss of nearly half of oil shipments from Alaska's North Slope because of a pipeline corrosion problem. Stevens said the department will be in contact with BP Exploration Alaska Inc. and West Coast refiners later in Monday to assess the situation. "If there is a request for oil we'll certainly take a...

    It's not a college prank to leak classified information concerning a serious issue. Yet the United States secret detail is reported on the front page of the New York Times while the secret detail of al-Qaeda remains in the private entries of the Islamic killers international. Once they find the individual who leaked classified information regarding the President authorizing secret government wiretap networks, he should be sent to court, then to jail. The New York Times, having reported the data, must disclose the leaker. US President George W. Bush has called the leak a "shameful act." It is that and...

    Unwarranted Outrage The Times blew our cover. I have no doubt that revelations in the New York Times that the NSA has been conducting selective and limited surveillance of terrorist communications crossing into or out of the United States will be immensely valuable to our enemies. I also have no doubt that these and similar actions can be legal, even when conducted without warrants. How could that be? From the sound and fury of the last few days from politicians and pundits, you would think this is a development as scandalous as Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy's authorization to wiretap...

    Phone tap ban prevented Hamza trial in Britain By Philip Johnston, Home Affairs Editor (Filed: 29/05/2004) Home Office dithering over a decision on whether to permit the use of phone tap evidence in court emerged yesterday as a key reason why Abu Hamza could not be tried in Britain. Although the Government has said for years that it was "reviewing" the prohibition on intercept evidence and was "minded" to lift the ban, it has yet to produce firm proposals. Hamza is in Belmarsh jail David Blunkett, the Home Secretary, conceded yesterday that evidence in American hands allegedly linking the extremist...

    'This goes no further...'By Brian Wheeler BBC News Online Magazine Following revelations about bugging at the United Nations, is there any way of ensuring that your private conversations stay that way? News that Kofi Annan and other senior UN figures may have been routinely bugged by US or British security services has caused a huge political row around the world. But it will also have caused alarm among other people in the public eye who deal with sensitive information - or anyone, indeed, who values their privacy. If the secretary general of the United Nations cannot prevent his private conversations...
