    BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C. (WCIV) — Berkeley County leaders want everyone who wants to work at the upcoming Volvo plant to have their best chance. They're launching a program with Trident Technical College to provide training to county residents that will teach them everything they need to know to snag a manufacturing job. While the training doesn't guarantee a job at Volvo, it does give participants a leg up over someone who is just coming in off the street. "This pilot program shows that Berkeley County leaders are keeping our promises and connecting Berkeley County citizens with jobs," said Berkeley County...

  • CAIR Orders U.S. Air Force to Ditch “Anti-Muslim” Counterterrorism Instructor

    The Islamic terrorist front group that transformed the way U.S. law enforcement agencies conduct anti-terrorism training is ordering the Air Force to sever ties with an instructor it considers to be anti-Muslim. The question is will the Trump administration cave into its demands? Under Barack Obama, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a group that reportedly raises money for Hamas, wielded tremendous power and managed to bully law enforcement agencies at the local, state and federal level to alter counterterrorism training materials deemed by the group to discriminate against Muslims. This includes getting the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to...
  • CLINTON ANDERSON ISN’T AN ***HOLE

    Writing of Riding ^ | 12 July 2016
    There are so many ways Clinton Anderson could be described, but ***hole doesn’t quite fit the bill. Although he self-labels himself an ***hole, “if your definition of an asshole is someone who tells the truth, speaks their mind, and is direct”, I think it misses the mark. Besides calling himself an ***hole, Clinton Anderson also sits down with his media crew to voice his support for abusing horses, abusing children, ass rape, the death of female riders who annoy him and calling anyone not pursuing competition delusional. I probably missed a few points but he covered a lot of bases.

    Claudia Fugazza, Ákos Pogány, and Ádám MiklósNovember 23, 2016 People have a remarkable ability to remember and recall events from the past, even when those events didn't hold any particular importance at the time they occurred. Now, researchers reporting in the journal Current Biology on November 23 have evidence that dogs have that kind of "episodic memory" too. The study found that dogs can recall a person's complex actions even when they don't expect to have their memory tested. "The results of our study can be considered as a further step to break down artificially erected barriers between non-human animals...

I’m a libertarian leaning Republican and gun expert, who thinks you are wrong about a lot of stuff, but I’m not writing this to gloat about your loss. For the record, I disliked all the presidential candidates. Judging by your social media over the last few days many liberals have been utterly terrified that your government might turn tyrannical or that evil people will now be emboldened to hurt you. I’m going to let you in on a little thing the other half of the country is familiar...

    With 10 years remaining in its $12 billion road-building program, the Illinois tollway intends to start training workers to help finish the job. The aim is to increase the number of minorities working on tollway projects through a center teaching construction-related skills, officials said at a meeting Wednesday. The program is in the early stages, with diversity department planners still figuring out logistics, including funding. About $400,000 is allocated for 2017, although several tollway board directors advised staff members to budget for more. A 2015 tollway study concluded that blacks, Hispanics and women are underrepresented compared to whites when it...

  • Pentagon nurses take ‘zombie pandemic’ course to train for real life outbreaks

    RT ^ | 07/05/16
    The US Department of Defense is using an animated online course about a zombie pandemic to teach active-duty military nurses about population health. There are actual Pentagon guidelines for a zombie outbreak as well. Do they know something we don’t? Military nurses studying for their doctorate at the Uniformed Services University of the Healthcare Sciences (USU) have to take a course on population health. Because many of the students are deployed around the world, the course has to be available online. It is not all PowerPoints and reading, however: the course features an animated storyline revolving around a zombie...

    A pair of incidents remind us that we are still living in a democracy and peaceful pushback can work, even on a college campus. Both stories involve Young Americans for Freedom. Two years ago, Virginia Tech cut off funding to the campus chapter of YAF when the group invited former U. S. treasurer Bay Buchanan, sister of conservative columnist Pat Buchanan, on campus to speak on immigration reform. Now, "After a long battle, Virginia Tech administrators reversed the Student Budget Board's decision and returned funding to VT YAF," Emily Jashinsky writes in the Winter 2016 issue of Libertas.

Sweden is offering sniper training for their new little friends from Islamic lands. And no, I'm not kidding. And this isn't political satire. The Swedish government is paying for Muslim invaders to learn how to shoot rifles. If anyone had any doubt that Sweden has lost its collective mind, doubt no more.

    ALEXANDRIA, Va. - A former third-grade teacher at a Muslim school was sentenced to 15 years in prison Friday for providing support to a Pakistani terrorist organization. Ali Asad Chandia, 29, who taught at the al-Huda school in College Park, Md., is one of 11 Muslim men convicted in what prosecutors called a "Virginia jihad network." The network involved a group of men who played paintball in the Virginia woods in 2000 and 2001 as a means of training for global holy war. After the Sept. 11 attacks, some group members turned their efforts against the United States, traveling to...

A man claiming to be a former Iranian spy testified Friday that Abdelghani Mzoudi, the second man to be tried for an alleged role in the Sept. 11 attacks, was involved in the preparations to hit the World Trade Center.

    Female soldiers suffered double the rate of injuries compared with male colleagues in Army combat training, including jobs in field artillery and repairing the Bradley Fighting Vehicle. The startling statistics come from Army studies obtained by the Center for Military Readiness (CMR), a research group that opposes what the Obama administration is expected to do by year’s end: put women in the direct land combat in infantry, armor, artillery and special operations units. Retired Gen. Raymond Odierno, who completed his four-year stint as Army chief of staff, said earlier this month that he already has decided to open all artillery...
