    NRA Shooting Illustrated ^ | Monday, March 30, 2020 | Ed Head
    Jack Wilson’s heroics were the product of practice, bravery and a sense of duty. The degree of precision he employed has many rethinking their training. As you’re reading this, the shooting at the West Freeway Church of Christ in Texas happened about 3 months ago, but as I’m writing this, the shooting and the heroics of Jack Wilson took place yesterday. As you may recall, a murderer stood up in the front of the church and shot down two men with a shotgun he had concealed under his coat. Mr. Wilson, head of the church volunteer security team, drew...
  • Obama-Biden Gun-Running Scandal: 10 Years Later, Still No Answers

    Of course, we’ll never see this on any front pages of any mainstream newspapers. Ten years ago, America learned about one of the Obama administration’s dumbest ideas–and that is saying a lot–when the scandal surrounding their failed “Operation Fast and Furious” finally got too big for the mainstream media to ignore. As near as we can tell, the administration’s plan was to sell as many firearms as possible to the Mexican cartels, immediately lose track of them, and then blame any resulting bloodshed on America’s “lax gun laws.” As more and more information came out–for example, the fact that one...

    I am looking for recommendations for a book about the American Revolution from FReepers. I'm in my forties - so a 'Karen' ha! - that's fine whatever. Anyway a real succinct look at it for one who is not extremely well informed. Not some Howard Zinn account that Goebbles would give a wink and a nod to. Just a well written account of the history of the men who by signing the Declaration were putting the risk of being hanged for treason on the line.

    China's IO campaign is enabled by the virtual bamboo curtain, which President Xi Jinping and the regime have spent the better part of the last decade developing. No longer is the physical barrier of the iron curtain required. Instead, the authoritarian government of China can exert physical and psychological control over Chinese citizens at home and abroad through such means as digital surveillance and a sweeping network of individuals and institutions that monitor Chinese citizens and seek to influence the nations in which they may reside. How does this virtual bamboo curtain work?
  • Protesting never solved anything - except defeated the ERA

    04/29/2020 3:52:07 PM PDT · by ProgressingAmerica · 12 replies
    Have you ever explained to a friend of yours how fun protesting is, about how important it is, how its right in the constitution because the Founders wanted us to be protesters - only to be met with irritation or a belief that protesting is somehow a "left wing thing"? Or, the worst one of all is this one: "Yeah well protesting never solved anything". Honestly, I think this one could be just as bad: "I have a job", as if somehow being active and involved is beneath you and apathy is virtuous. I have news for you, because you...

    Thank you for the reminder, Mr. Exum! President Ronald Reagan on facing a crisis: “The crisis we are facing today does not require of us the kind of sacrifice that ... so many thousands of others were called upon to make. It does require, however, our best effort and our willingness to believe in ourselves and to believe in our capacity to perform great deeds; to believe that, together, with God’s help, with can and will resolve the problems which now confront us. And after all, why shouldn’t we believe that? We are Americans.”

    Isn't it time for W to come off the sidelines, forgive the nickname for Jeb! and help Trump manage the politics of the moment, the hatred and vitriol aimed at him by, in some cases former members of his administration? Much like 9/11, this is a moment when the Nation must come together. We already know the left will never relent. Where are you, Mr. President?

    BELLEVUE, WA – In a move directly linked to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Second Amendment Foundation has filed a federal lawsuit against New Jersey Gov. Philip D. Murphy and State Police Supt. Patrick J. Callahan, asserting violation of civil rights under color of law by shutting down firearms dealerships in the Garden State, thus preventing citizens from exercising their rights under the Second and Fourteenth amendments. Murphy and Callahan are being sued in their official capacities. The case, which was filed in the U.S. District Court for the State of New Jersey is known as Kashinsky v. Murphy. Joining...

    Nestled among the 12 titles and 880 pages of the $2.2 trillion “Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act of 2020,” approved unanimously by the Senate late March 25, is a paragraph sending $400 million to state governments “to help prepare for the 2020 election.” The provision’s senatorial proponents promise it will enable state election officials to increase the ability of citizens nationwide “to vote by mail, expand early voting and online registration, and increase the safety of voting in-person by providing additional voting facilities and more poll-workers,” according to a summary prepared by Democratic staff members of the Senate...

    I am in awe of our president. I was not a big Trump fan before the election. In the end I did vote for him and have never looked back. With everything against him, no other man would ever be able to do what this man does. He fights the media. He fights the courts. He fights the democrats. He fights the republicans. The economy is at unheard of heights. When he wins he gets no credit for winning. He has won on immigration. He has won on foreign policy. I am truly awed watching him announce a Middle East...

    American Minute ^ | December 26, 2019 | Bill Federer
    Catherine the Great of Russia (1729-1796) rebuffed King George III's requests and bribes to have Russia side with Britain during the Revolutionary War. Instead, Russia continued trading with the American colonies, providing much needed supplies. Catherine even attempted to negotiate a peace with France and Britain to bring an early end to the war in America's favor. Catherine the Great had earlier deposed her husband, Tsar Peter III, in a coup. She then fought the Russo-Turkish War (1768-1774), against the Muslim Ottoman Turkish Empire. Her General, Alexei Grigoryevich Orlov destroyed the Ottoman navy at the Battle of Chesma, July 5-7,...
