    Shortened title. Full title: Hate Hoax Promoters Kamala Harris and Al Sharpton Meet In Harlem Hours After Jussie Smollett Arrested In politics timing is everything, as the saying goes. And the timing of this meeting was perfect. 2020 Democratic Party presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) met with 2004 Democratic Party presidential candidate and Tawana Brawley race attack hoax promoter the Rev. Al Sharpton at Sylvia’s Restaurant in Harlem Thursday morning–just hours after accused race attack hoaxer Jussie Smollett, whom Harris had supported, was arrested in Chicago.

    Federal grand jury reportedly already convened, issued multiple subpoenas on Jussie Smollett fake mail threat sent to Fox 1/18/19 If the remarkable grassroots journalists at CWBChicago are correct (as they have been all along), Jussie Smollett has a lot more to worry about than the state rap of a class four felony of making a false police report. If he was indeed responsible for the sending of a letter to the Fox Chicago studios where Empire is produced, he has triggered federal charges that carry hard time. Importantly, the feds don't parole early to relieve overcrowded prisons the way the...

    Appreciating the 4-inch .45 Colt Ruger Redhawk, 'among the highest achievements in revolver design.' The 4-inch-barrel Ruger Redhawk revolver in .45 Colt is among the highest achievements in revolver design and manufacture. This is an immensely strong gun, as testified by the fact that it is also made in .454 Casul. The strongest and most corrosion-resistant alloys are employed in its making. The cylinder wall thickness is .110 inch and it is made from Carpenter Steel's Custom 465 stainless steel. The barrels are made from Carpenter Steel’s Project 7000 15Cr-5Ni stainless steel. Because they are intended to take maximum loads,...

    This Colorado man fought an Attacking Mountain Lion with his bare hands (Foot) and survived! The 31-year-old runner told reporters that he ran up a nature trail earlier this month near Fort Collins and made his way to the top to take in the sights. But on his way down, he said, he ran into some ice on the trail, so he took a detour and hopped on West Ridge Trail at Horsetooth Mountain Open Space, a 2,700-acre park known for its hiking, biking and horseback riding trails. Moments later, he said, he heard pine needles rustle behind him. Then...

    The fascination with every twitch and Tweet from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez—”the moral equivalent of Gore,” as our friend Richard Samuelson calls her—is one of the compelling mysteries of our time, along with the absence of the Cambridge Comma. If there’s an Oxford Comma, why isn’t there also a Cambridge Comma? Or maybe it has merely been overtaken by what I call the “Shatner-Walken Comma,” which runs something like: “What, do you mean, a Cambridge, comma? All you, need, is more, cowbell. And, Yeoman Rand.” But I digress. It ought to be pretty obvious by now that AOC is to unintelligence what...
  • After Venezuela exchange, the case grows for throwing Ilhan Omar off House Foreign Affairs Committee

    The unfitness of Rep. Ilhan Omar for the House Foreign Affairs Committee has already been brought up based on her persistent anti-Semitism, her strange habit of repeating Russian propaganda, and her apparent abuse of U.S. immigration law. Now a new and very big reason has come up: Her cringe-inducing ignorance of actual foreign affairs.  In a hearing on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Omar got her big moment to show her foreign policy chops, and started in by misstating the actual name of the State Department's grizzled old special envoy for Venezuela, the well-known Elliott Abrams, calling him 'Adams.' Then, sneering and smiling weirdly, she brought...

    The Washington Examiner’s Naomi Lim reports that yesterday the House passed an amendment to a resolution with a message to Ilhan Omar: (“In rare vote, House sends a message on anti-Semitism to Ilhan Omar.”) We have Rep. David Kustoff (R., Tenns.) to thank for this:The House on Wednesday unanimously passed a broad condemnation of anti-Semitism days after Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., received widespread criticism over her comments on Israel. The language, which does not mention Omar by name, was approved 424-0 using a legislature procedure that lets the minority party make a last-minute motion to change legislation just before it’s...

    Seeking to deflect criticism of Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar for her history of anti-Semitic remarks, Morning Joe swung into whataboutism mode today. Joe Scarborough flagrantly mischaracterized a tweet by GOP Rep. Kevin McCarthy prior to the midterms. Scarborough twice claimed that McCarthy had said: "don't let Jews buy the election."McCarthy had said no such thing. McCarthy had tweeted: "We cannot allow Soros, Steyer and Bloomberg to BUY this election. Get out and vote Republican." He never identified the three as Jewish, and it is unlikely that more than a small fraction of Americans would know that they are. In contrast,...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) has moved into a luxury apartment building in the District of Columbia's Navy Yard neighborhood, the Washington Free Beacon has learned. Ocasio-Cortez, a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, got a big raise with her election to Congress, a job that comes with a $174,000 annual salary. She told the New York Times she was concerned about how she would get an apartment before that salary kicked in. She ended up moving into a luxury apartment building with a wide array of amenities where rent for even a studio apartment exceeds $2,000 a month....

    In our continuing discussions on whether pocket pistols are good enough to carry for personal protection. We sometimes hear of the small few gun enthusiasts that carry these .22 pocket pistols. For personal defense the goal is to always "break contact" from the "Bad Guy" if you’re ever caught in such dire situation. Breaking contact is to get away from the BG either you had the six sense to avoid the confrontation or caught in the fight. Once you have fired on the BG, the goal is to stop the BG from his attack so you can run away. Terminal...

    If you missed it Saturday, read this to see just how far her advisors went in BSing about the infamous line on the GND fact sheet about “economic security” for those who are “unwilling to work.” It takes stones to go on the other party’s favorite cable news network and insist to their faces that that document was a fabrication rather than something that was posted on Ocasio-Cortez’s congressional website.And it takes elephant-sized stones to amplify that lie to your three million Twitter followers, which is what AOC herself did when she retweeted the clip without comment.WaPo can’t muster...

    The National Sentinel ^ | 11 FEB 2019 | J. D. Heyes
    Today’s Democrat Party continues to lurch to the extreme Left as evidenced by its political, economic, and social policies. Politically, Democrats favor policies like open borders, “justice reform” that essentially means letting guilty people go if they’re part of a minority group, and anything that Republicans and POTUS Donald Trump don’t want. Economically, the party is closer to Karl Marx and Vladimir Lenin than Adam Smith, the latter of whom is credited with being the “father of modern capitalism.” Socially, the party is anti-life and pro-murder — there’s just no other way to say it. While Democrats shed tears for...

    Between the hunting woods, long-range target competitions and even the U.S. military, the Creedmoor round is making inroads among shooters. 6.5 Creedmoor is one of the new calibers that’s quickly received a pretty intense following, and it's easy to see why. It offers better ballistics than most rounds in its class, has taken numerous precision rifle match medals, and is even being adopted by the U.S. military for some of their sniper weapons. I personally have used the 6.5 Creedmoor for a few years now, and I have two rifles chambered in the caliber. I've taken several large deer with...

    President Trump was correct and courageous last night in his State of the Union address condemning the New York State Legislature for its newly passed open-ended abortion allowances, as well as Virginia's governor for calmly endorsing the killing of babies after they're born. Many on the left are celebrating their "sophistication," while we, rightfully, are sickened by their lack of humanity and morality. Their "sophistication" has made them a people with no shame. They openly and proudly proclaim that which should not be done, that which people with a sense of embarrassment would hide. ... It is becoming apparent that...

You don’t think some people would have — I’m not saying I wish it would have happened, but I’m just saying I betcha there are some. Calling it a throwback game because it featured defense. That was not a throwback game. That was just — ah, folks, that was just a quarterback for the Rams not ready for the stage is what that was and maybe an offensive game plan,...

    They like her. They really, really like her. A documentary of the story about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign to unseat a long-time incumbent won the annual audience award in the documentary category at the Sundance Film Festival. The political media’s darling has won over the Hollywood film industry, too. Rachel Lears wrote, produced and directed a documentary and financed it with a Kickstarter campaign. The documentary is titled “Knock Down the House” and the filmmaker really lucked out. She was in the right place at the right time. Choosing four women candidates running for elected office in 2018, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez...

    We're gonna be talking about Top 5 9mm carbines; and I realize some of the gun here on the table aren't carbines yet, one of ’em’s technically a pistol, however, these are kind of candidates that would make a good carbine, a good suppressor hose, possibly a good SBR host, so we're trying to cover kind of a wide gamut of different 9mm carbines. Pistol caliber carbines are a lot of fun to play around with, they’re awesome to suppress, they are very handy, they're great for personal defense, great for getting out in the yard and plinking. I cast...

    Guns that shoot around corners are more than grist for the mill of an old Bugs Bunny plot in a Saturday morning cartoon. They’re real, and were first used, with limited success, by the German army in World War II. The weapon in question was the STG44 Krummlauf, a variant of the standard STG44 assault rifle. Why on earth would you want to shoot around a corner? The better question is why on earth wouldn’t you? It’s a lot safer than standing out in broad daylight where the enemy can take shots at you any old time they like. German...

    Eliphalet Remington II founded Remington in 1816. His decision had been made that year when his homemade gun was so highly admired at a shooting contest. After forging it himself, he had taken it to a gunsmith in Utica, New York to finish making it into an actual gun. The company actually started that very day with all the admirers placing orders with him to make their guns. Up to that time the available guns on the market were so bad that most people just made their own. They fashioned homemade rifle barrels by simply heating and hammering iron strips...
